Braddy crashes pastor's car, gets DUI
* THE CITY COMMISSIONER
CAUSED $600 IN DAMAGES.
By JESSICA RIFFEL
Sor,rT. l I' 11 : ,li -.:. .:.,
A Gainesville city commissioner
who leads a public safety committee
was arrested for driving while under
the influence of alcohol Wednesday
night, according to a police report.
City Commissioner Ed Braddy
was arrested at about 10:40 p.m.
after crashing his Pontiac van
into the Rev. Timothy Keyes' car
on Northwest Sixth Street near
Northwest Ninth Street, causing
about $600 in damage, according to
the Gainesville Police Department
Keyes is the
pastor at Eastside
4, on University
1 Avenue and has
worked with the
on issues regard-
Braddy ing alcohol regu-
lation and bar losing times.
Braddy's blood-alcohol level
was between .181 and .184, which
is more than twice the legal limit
in Florida. Braddy showed signs of
impairment and performed poorly
on a field sobriety exam, according
to the report.
Braddy, who was driving alone,
was arrested on Northwest 16th
Avenue, several blocks from the
crash, according to the report.
Braddy did not return phone
calls late Thursday afternoon, and
Keyes declined to comment.
Braddy was held overnight at
the Alachua County Jail. He paid a
$1,000 bail Thursday morning, ac-
cording to jail records.

The price of progress may hit UF students in the wallet
- and the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship will not be
there to protect them.
The Board of Governors, which met Thursday at UF,
approved a proposal that would fund technology im-
provements for state universities through fees charged
to students, and Bright Futures will not
cover the cost.
The fee, which awaits approval
from the Florida Legislature, would
be under restrictions by the Board. The

Goldberg sible for organizing a cormiittee to de-
termine the cost to students and where
the money should be spent.
At least half of the committee members would be stu-
dents appointed by the university's Student Body presi-
dent, and the university president would select the rest.
The Board amended the proposal to ensure it could
strictly regulate the conditions of the fee and keep the cost
to students under control. If passed by the Legislature,
the proposal would go into effect on July 1.
"I would hope that students would see it's in their
best interest," UF President Bernie Machen said. "All of it
would be beneficial to the student."
The fee could be used to fund an improved UF
WebMail system, better software programs, a campus-
wide wireless network or a variety of other enhance-
ments, Machen said.
"A minimal fee could appreciate a lot of money," he
Student Body President Joe Goldberg voted against the
bill and plans to fight it when it reaches the Legislature.
"I don't think the buck should be pushed off to the
students," he said.

Access and Diversity board
his its first-ever meeting
In its first-ever meeting, Gov.
Jeb Bush's Access and Diversity
Commission discussed ways to
"widen the pipeline" from K-12
education to Florida universities
Bush created the group to
manage a series of programs de-
signed to bring more minorities
- particularly blacks into the
State University System.
Those initiatives include
the Florida Student Assistance
Grants and the Scholarship.
Tuition for At-Risk Students
programs, which help students
from low-income families, and
the First Generation Matching
Grant Program, which will assist
students who are the first in their
families to attend college.
The commission convened
with the Student Affairs
Committee of the Florida Board
of Governors, which oversees the
SUS, in the Reitz Union Grand
The percentage of Floridians
with bachelor's degrees or higher
has increased in recent years for
all races, but the rate of increase
has been greater for whites, said
Dottie Minear, an associate vice
chancellor of the board.
"The gap is actually widen-
ing," she said.
In her presentation to the
commission, Minear emphasized
reaching out to middle schools.
She mentioned tutoring, aca-
demic preparation and cultural
issues special to minorities.
These issues include the ex-
pectations placed on student and
family support. Minorities may
need special social, psychological
and health care, she said.
The commission will be dis-
solved June 30.
Board of Governors wants
control over university bonds
If the Board of Governors
gets it way, it will be easier for
them to fund university proj-
ects with student money.
At its meeting Thursday,
Sthe Board of Governors decid-
ed to request authority from
the Legislature .to approve
funding requests for univer-
sity improvement projects.
The governors, who
oversee Florida's 11 public
universities, proposed a bill
that will allow them to au-
thorize universities to issue.

meets once a year," said
Ed Poppell, UF's vice
president for Finance and
Administration. "There are
things we need to build and
bond in between."

fund projects such as new
The proposed bill would
allow the Board of Governors
to authorize universities to
use tuition-funded fees, such
as the Activity & Service Fee,
toward financing bonds.
"The bottom line is this is
all good," Poppell said. "This
is devolving the authority to

Break on Through
Hateful and disparaging phrases cover the Writing on
the Wall Project on the Plaza of the Americas. Each
block displays a term or phrase that students painted
(as shown on right) to symbolically rip down oppres-
sion and hatred.
Earilier this week, the 400 blocks were built into the
wall, which symbolizes the barriers in society. Students
guard the wall 24 hours a day.
UF President Bernie Machen, UF student Ivana Black
and UF advisor Vikram Rangala will speak at the clos-
ing ceremony today at 1 p.m. Students will then tear
down the wall, which is 40 feet long and 9 feet high.
The project is part of People Awareness Week and is
in its fourth year.

Late-night study session powwows
will have to come to an end as students
have to deal with the Health Science
Center Library dosing two hours
At the beginning of the semester,
the Sunday through Thursday dosing
hours of the HSC Library were reduced
from midnight to 10 p.m. Although the
decision was voted on by the library
administration, the plan was given
final approval by HSC Library Deputy
Director Beth Layton.
However, not all of the HSC Library
employees agree with the new policy
Rick Lockwood has been working
with libraries for 28 years. For the past
four years, he has served as the night
supervisor of the HSC Library.
"I've always liked the library, al-
ways enjoyed being in the library,"
Lockwood said. "And I've always felt
this is one of the best libraries around."
Since the implementation of the new
policy, Lockwood said he has noticed a
significant drop in attendance.
Most students who come to the
HSC Library are graduate students
looking for a nice, quiet place to study,
Lockwood said. The change in hours
may cause former attendees to look
for alternatives, such as the Smathers
Library which stays open later.
Layton said her goal isn't to lower
attendance rates or make life difficult
for students. Instead, by reallocating
resources, Layton hopes to better assist
students by bringing the library into
the new-media generation.
"It's a struggle with the library as a
physical presence and a virtual pres-
ence," Layton said. "The reality is we
see a huge use of the virtual Web site."
In the last fiscal year, the physical
library logged about 300,000 visitors.
On the other hand, the virtual library
was accessed about 89 million times,
Coupled with the fact that accord-
ing to gate counts, two-thirds of activity
occurred before 10 p.m., it only seemed
natural to move resources toward the

always enjoyed being in the

HSC Library supervisor
"You can go to Starbucks and pull
up an article," Layton said.
By reducing the operating hours
of the physical library more money
and manpower can be shifted toward
transferring journals and educating
employees on working with the virtual
As part of a larger plan to compen-
sate for a loss in attendance, Layton has
also begun to weed out some of the
older, out-of-date books and journals,
thereby emphasizing the library's most
aesthetically pleasing element.
"The first floor has windows from
the floor to the ceiling," Layton ex-
plained. "Its very beautiful, but it's
taken up by stacks."

air potato plant
By DONALD R. COLEMAN III
Alligator Contributing Writer
About 1,000 Alachua County residents are
expected to participate Saturday in the seventh
annual Great Air Potato Roundup, an event that
focuses on the removal of air potatoes and other
The roundup will be held in 24 natural areas in
and around Gainesville from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The air potato is an exotic plant that spreads
quickly and prevents other native plants from re-
ceiving sunlight and nutrients, said Nia Haynes,
naturalist instructor at Morningside Nature
In a single growing season, the air potato can
grow 60 to 70 feet in length.
It is a vine that has heart-shaped leaves and
produces large numbers of aerial tubers, which
are potato-like growths attached to the stem.
The roundup is a family event, and parents
are encouraged to bring their children out to help
with the tuber gathering.
"It's a. great way to teach a kid the value of
community service," said Gary Paul, program
At each of the 24 sites, there will be a site lead-
er to help organize the efforts of the volunteers.
The main site is at Morningside Nature
Gainesville's Ecosystems at Risk, along with
the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council and other
co-sponsors, will present the event.
VolunIteers can participate without registering,
but they are encouraged to pre-register at www.

"The African Experience
in Europe through Cinema"
will take place Friday through
Sunday. The films are free and
open to the public, and six of the
films will be shown at the Reitz
"This year, we decided to do
a somewhat different format, in
conjunction with the Center for
European Studies, in the form of
a film festival and conference,"
said Leonardo A. Villal6n, di-
rector of the Center for African
The Southeast Africanist
Network was founded in 2000.
It is an association of faculty
members who teach classes
about Africa in southeastern U.S.
schools and meet annually to ex-
change ideas pertaining to teach-
ing about Africa, he said.
"We are hoping it will raise in-
teresting issues for students and
people in the community about
international immigration, about
the experiences of contemporary
Africa in a globalizing world and
the changing nature of European
society with immigration,"
The keynote speaker for the
event will be professor Manthia
Diawara of New York University,
who will also show his film
"Rouch in Reverse," which ex-
amines European anthropology
from an African perspective.

Manager Russ Blackburn about Braddy's arrest.
"I'm grateful nobody was injured," Hanrahan
said. "That's the most important thing."
Keyes identified Braddy as the driver of the
van, according to the report. Keyes' mother,
Frances Keyes, said her son recognized Braddy
from neighborhood Crime Watch meetings,
which they both attended.
Tony Domenech, a former city commissioner,
said his prayers go out to Braddy and his family.
"We all make mistakes in life," Domenech
said. "I think we're all human beings."
In March, the commission tried to gain control
over the regulation of drink specials in bars.
During this effort, Braddy said he didn't think
government intervention would solve the prob-
lem of alcohol abuse.
"People have to take individual responsibility
for themselves as well," he said.

But we've survived.
After another long week, we're ready to just unwind and
enjoy a cold one.
Maybe we could invite City Commissioner Ed Braddy over.
He started partying a little early this week.
But before we take our leave, we have one final obligation.
All you have to do is kick back, relax and enjoy this week's
highlights in the current edition of...
Darts & Laurels
We begin by offering a mandatory-sentencing-is-always-a-
bad-idea DART to the Alachua County Commission for imple-
menting a mandatory death penalty for menacing dogs.
Dogs can be deemed dangerous even in situations where a
dog approaches a person without attacking.
Dog owners can still appeal the decision before a dog is
euthanized, but we dislike the fact that dogs will now be guilty
until proven innocent.
Canines, like criminals, should be judged on a case-by-case
Taking the common sense out of sentencing can't ever be a
Next we throw a you're-just-making-a-bad-situation-worse
DART to the homeless people who feel compelled to attack
other homeless people.
Sadie Darnell, a community relations coordinator for the
Gainesville Police Department, said the homeless have been
victimizing each other at an increasing rate over the past two
As if living on the streets wasn't bad enough, now the city's
indigents have to make sure their counterparts aren't planning
on jumping them when their backs are turned.
On the Student Government scene, we bestow an its-about-
time-somebody-announced-their-candidacy LAUREL to Susan
Henriques will run for treasurer as an independent in the
upcoming SG election.
She also has tons of experience with the SG Finance Office.
Henriques was an employee there until she criticized her
boss, Lindsay Cosimi, following Cosimi's failure to notice that
Student Sen. Jared Hemandez had spent SG money on an off-
campus tailgate party.
Apparently Henriques was supposed to keep her mouth
But we're glad she wasn't afraid to speak out about SG's mis-
takes. And we're glad to see her back in the game.
On a related note, we bestow a don't-use-news-reports-as-
publicity DART to Hemandez. Hernandez recently announced
hisresignation from both the Judiciary and the Rules and Ethics
committees and renounced his membership in the Gator Party.
But we're not fooled.
Hernandez will undoubtedly run for Student Body president
in this Spring's SG election.
We think he's just trying to get some positive exposure until
he announces his candidacy.
And we don't like being used as a political tool.
At the university, we drop a thanks-for-the-quick-response
LAUREL to Kyle Cavanaugh and the rest of the UF administra-
tion. Cavanaugh, the vice president for human resources, got rid
of the "non-platonic relationship" clause in UF's affidavit for
domestic partner health benefits.
"I certainly feel horrible about the confusion that has sur-
faced around this," Cavanaugh said.
SWhile we don't think the clause was a huge deal in the first
place, we really appreciate their speedy turnaround.
And hey, its about time somebody in the UF administration
got the benefit of the doubt.

UF shouldn't bloc newed schools
UF shouldn't block new med schools
large public universities are supposed to be bas-
tions of logical thinking. Many wise individuals
should be involved in the decisions that deter-
mine each institution's public stance.
Yet UF has recently gone on the record as having had
a lapse in this logic, instead showing pure envy and
UCF and FIU have been working diligently to build
medical schools garnering financial support from
their local communities and establishing close ties with
the hospitals in their respective regions. All appearanc-
es indicate that both schools have completed the neces-
sary work to make them legitimate choices for the state
to build new medical schools at their campuses.
Instead of congratulating them, or at least admir-
ing their accomplishments, UF denounced the plans.
University officials have issued statements saying that
money spent on UCF and FIU medical schools would
be wasted. Apparently our administration feels that
because we are the flagship university of the state,
we have the first right to any funds distributed by the
Maybe they think the other schools in the state uni-
versity system only deserve our financial leftovers.
Heaven forbid that Florida becomes a state with
more than one exceptional public university.
SJanie Fouke, UF provost and senior vice president
for Academic Affairs, has been quoted as saying there's
"not enough money in the state of Florida for every
university to have everything." It seems incongruous
to hear such a declaration from our university's admin-
istration when we have been squandering money on a
national branding campaign. ,
Both UCF and FIU have fulfilled the requirements
Scott Gilton set before them by the Board of
Speaking Out Governors, but UF still questions
the need for more medical schools
in the state. The administration
must not realize that UF's goal of becoming one of the
Top 10 public universities in the nation could also be
As UF spends money on branding and public rela-
tions, it undermines its criticism of schools that are
making concrete improvements to their campuses and
It is clear UF needs money. Perhaps that money
should be found through logical budgeting decisions
instead of relying on the state to continue raising us up
as the flagship state school. It would be a poor choice on
the Board of Governors' part to forego serious funding
of other Florida institutions merely because of prec-
edent and a title.
What would UF do with the funds that would be sent
to UCF and FIU? The provost claimed, "If we're going
to make it to the Top 10, we're going to need every re-
source we can garner."
The administration is turning green with envy at the
prospect of having to share funds with other schools.
The means for becoming a Top 10 university should
be well planned and robust. A decrease in funding from
the state shouldn't result in panic here in Gainesville.
Perhaps the time scale for the plan should be in-

We can only hope that logic prevails.
Our goal of being in the Top 10 shouldn't be a justifi-

. ,'t:: to the E-J::!:
Krishnas provide valuable lunch service
After reading all the ideas put forth
against the Hare Krishnas selling food on
campus, I have to say that none of the ar-
guments posed make sense.
First, they are a non-profit religious
organization. Making the Krishnas pay
for licenses and permits would likely put
them out of business.
I have been saved by this buffet more
than once when I've found myself with an
empty stomach and a couple of dollars in
I find it ironic that a business major is
actually calling for more regulation.
If you do not feel comfortable buying
food from them, don't.
But don't ruin it for the majority of
people who actually enjoy these meals.
The Krishnas add more options and di-
versity to our campus, and just by that fact
alone they should be let alone.
I find it ludicrous that people claim it's
unfair for them to sell food without a li-
cense or permit when in reality what's un-
fair is that we have a corporate junk food
monopoly going on all over campus.
Bible teaches that homosexuality is sin
I read Michael Day's column in the
Alligator, "No justification in Bible for in-
I agree that Christians should be toler-
ant of homosexuals and about the parable
But the Bible does mention that man
should not have sex with men. The Bible
teaches that homosexuality is a sin and is
equal to all other sins.
Therefore, if a Christian can forgive a
murderer or thief and try to bring that per-
son closer to God, then they should do the
same for homosexuals.
If you call yourself a Christian, you
should not hate homosexuals. You should
try to bring them closer to God.

Palestinians clearly do not want peace
Hamas, a heinous terrorist organization
responsible for nearly 350 separate terror-
ist attacks, won a majority in this week's

it is appalling and disheartening that such
a murderous and intolerable movement
is shared among the hearts and minds of
This terrorist group has zealously stated
they do not believe in peace talks and their
only goal is the absolute destruction of

concessions and has been willing to conduct

* N .
Miller the victim of student discrimination
Within the last five days, I've read
three articles in the Alligator talking about
Christine Miller none of them casting her
in a good light.
I'm writing because I know Miller better
than any other person on campus.
I am her father.
Christine is the poster child of love and
tolerance. Those who actually know her
know this to be true. Her detractors can't
even seem to get her name right.
Christine loves everybody and would
defend the rights of homosexuals as quickly
as she would defend the rights of Christians
who believe homosexuality is a sin.
Wednesday's letter by the Pride Student
Union attributed the higher suicide rates
among homosexuals to people like Christine.
Irresponsible speculations like this one are
motivated by bigotry and false stereotypes.
Clearly, the Pride Student Union has failed
in fighting discrimination and has instead
become the source of it.
UF student parent
Aborted fetuses also deserve memorial
The front page of Tuesday's Alligator
featured a photograph of coat hangers and
crosses memorializing the 240 women who
die daily from choosing to have an abortion.
Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood should
create a second memorial for the 4,000 lives
of unborn children that are lost to abortion
Any death is sad, but even more so when
the lives ended are innocent ones.

Board of Governors postpones fee-hike proposal
* SOME OF UF'S FEES ARE
THE LOWEST IN THE STATE.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
The overseers of the State.
University System postponed a pro-
posal Thursday that would unbridle
universities' powers to raise some
Members of the Board of
Governors expressed concern about
unplanned expenses for students
and possible rejection of the pro-
posal by the Legislature, to which
an approved proposal would have
Because the Florida Bright
Futures Scholarship covers the af-
fected fees, the proposal could have
cost the state millions of dollars.
Florida law prevents certain ac-
cessory fees to student tuition the
Activity & Service Fee, the Athletic
Fee and the Health Fee from be-
ing raised by more than 5 percent
annually. It limits the sum of these
fees to 40 percent of tuition.
Thursday's proposal would have
eliminated the 5-percent cap and
raised the total restriction to 45 per-
cent of tuition.
: UF's A&S, health
News and athletic fees are
the lowest of all 11
state universities. Because the UF
fees lie the farthest below the 45-
percent cap, they have the greatest
potential to rise.
UF could theoretically raise its
fees by 70 percent, costing students
an added $13.22 per credit hour.
This is unlikely because students
help set those fees, said Rick Maxey,
the director of educational policy for
the university system.
UF President Bernie Machen
said his university needs higher fees
because recent jumps in energy and
labor costs have hurt the athletics
and student-health programs.
"There was hardly enough mon-
ey in the fee increase to handle the
increased costs," he said.
UF Student Body President Joe
Goldberg also president of the
Florida Student Association is the
sole student member of the Board.
He objected to a removal of the cap.
Beyond straining Bright Futures,
a fee increase could shock the bud-
get of a student who had planned
for lower costs, Goldberg said.
Board member Charles Edwards
said the cap may need to be raised,
but the Legislature won't allow un-
"They're not going to allow it
unlimited. There needs to be some
kind of cap on it," he said.
The Board will vote on the issue
again at its Feb. 23 meeting.
Fees could help bring wireless Internet to entire campus and improve WebMail
FEES from page 1
Goldberg, as president of the statewide
Florida Student Association lobbying group,
is guaranteed a seat on the Board.
If students will be paying for the full cost,
they should have full control over how the
money is spent, Goldberg said.
He said although there are definite tech-
nological needs at UF, the state should find
other ways to pay for it.
"When you have a decision to make that's
good for the whole group but not good for
you, that's a hard decision," UF Provost
Janie Fouke said. "Would a group decide to
tax themselves for the bigger picture?"
The reoccurring e-mail problem UF
students regularly have to deal with is just
one issue the funding could help improve,
"I don't think the buck should. be
pushed off to the students."
UF student body president
The money could be used to safeguard
the university's computer against a hur-
Though the money could help to make
UF's campus wireless, the university is al-
ready working to address the issue, Fouke
said. She hopes to have some plans in place
Tom Mosley, a UF sophomore, said he
would be willing to pay a small fee if they
spent the money for campus-wide wireless
"Definitely I'd pay a fee if we had wire-
less all over campus," he said. "I want wire-
less in the john."

Heated rival awaits UF
By RACHEL ROBINS
W Alligator Writer
Only one team will avoid a two-meet
losing streak in Knoxville this weekend.
The UF men's and women's swim-
ming and diving team will travel to
Tennessee on Saturday to face the
Volunteers at 4 p.m.
E'st week, the Gators men and
women narrowly lost to Auburn, while
Georgia defeated Tennessee.
Last year, the UF men's team defeat-
ed the Volunteers in Gainesville 143-93.
The last time UF lost to Tennessee was
during the 2001-2002 season. Still, the
Gators can't overlook the Volunteers,
UF coach Gregg Troy said.
"[The Volunteers] are always really
good at home, and they always race us
tough," Troy said. "It is a pretty heated
rivalry. We can't take them lightly."
The No. 11 Tennessee men were
undefeated until losing to Georgia last
The No. 4 UF women (9-2, 4-2
Southeastern Conference) defeated
both Alabama and Arkansas on Friday,
then they lost to Aiburn 178-120 on
The UF women defeated the
Volunteers 145-93 in Gainesville last
Troy will also check out Tennessee's
Student Aquatic Center, where the SEC
Sbe held beginning Feb.
S W ~w15.
i.t With the SEC
S Championships less
than three weeks away,
Troy is in the process
of finalizing the squad
Troy that he will take to
"I think it's important for people who
didn't race well last week to do better
this week," Troy said.
This weekend will wrap up SEC dual-
meet competition for the Gators. UF
will conclude its regular season sched-
ule against Indian River Community.
College Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. in the O'Connell
Track teams to hit road
* WOMEN HEAD TO NEW TRACK,
HIGH ALTITUDE ENVIRONMENT.
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
The Gators' men's and women's
track teams are set for a weekend of
traveling, as both teams will compete on
unfamiliar grounds in different meets.
The No. 20 women's team will
head to the New Mexico Invitational
in Albuquerque. The men's team
will head to the Clemson Heptathlon
Championships beginning today.
Highlighting the women's roster this
weekend will be senior four-time All-
American Rachel Longfors and sopho-
more pole vaulter Natalie Moser.
"We are looking forward to this
weekend's meet," UF women's coach
Tom Jones said. "The University of New
Mexico has a lot of great teams com-
ing in, and we will use this as a gauge
against teams we don't go up against
week-in and week-out during the year."
The course at New Mexico is unique
in that it features a banked track and
is also at a different altitude than the
w6men's team is normally used to com-
Due to the track design and altitude,
adjustments will be made to marks
needed to receive an automatic or pro-
visional bid in an event. The track is also
considered to be one of the fastest tracks
.in all of collegiate track and field.
Only three athletes sophomores
Blake Taylor and Kurt Lee and senior
Kayne DaKoski will travel with
the No. 8 men's team this weekend to
Clemson. The meet will provide the
men with their only chance to compete
in a full-blown heptathlon competition
before the Southeastern Conference
Indoor Championships at the O'Connell
Center beginning Feb. 24.

JF frustrates UCF in opener
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
For a quiet crowd, it was rather
ud at the Ring Tennis Complex on
The UF men's tennis team
d Central Florida kicking and
:reaming as it cruised to a 7-0 win
its season-opening team match.
In No. 1 singles competition,
F sophomore Greg Oullette was
painting lines and hitting sharp
eagles, frustrating his opponent,
inan Sudas, to the point where
ie UCF player threw his hat and
touted on several occasions.
Oullette never lost his focus,
defeating Sudas in straight sets
"It's great to see that," Oullette
aid. "When he started, I knew I
ras in control of the match."
Senior Stefan Tell and sopho-
more Nestor Briceno were racking
Lp points before officials could post
hem on the scoreboard, winning
heir No. 2 doubles match against
JCF's Alamgir Wali and Sebastian
)elgado (8-2) in 38 minutes.
Seniors Ryan Sherry and Chris
Irandi were down a break at 5-4
>ut won four straight games (8-5)
o secure the doubles point:
Oullette and junior Janne
folmia won their No. 1 doubles
In No. 6 singles action, Sherry
wasn't afraid to show his emotions,
)ften shouting, "Let's go," and,
'Come on," at his opponent.
Sherry said he does it both to en-
:ourage himself and intimidate his
opponent. In this match it did both.
Sherry had himself energized
and Brock Sakey talking to himself
as he won in entertaining fashion
"For a lot of people, when things
don't go well, they use negative en-
ergy, bad words and racket throw-
ing," Sherry said. "For me, the more
positive I am, the less negative it
In No. 3 singles action, Briceno
struggled in the first set against
SWall. Briceno won a close tiebreaker
7-5 and never looked back, winning
in straight sets (7-6 (5), 6-0).
"For a lot of people, when
things don't go well, they
use negative energy, bad
words and racket throwing.
For me, the more positive
I am, the less negative it
Brandi was in control in the sec-
ond set in his No. 5 singles match
against UCF's Tarek Ben Soltane
when Soltane defaulted (6-1, 3-0)
due to a leg cramp.
Tell and Holmia cruised in their
respective singles matches.
"The first day is always scary,"
UF coach Andy Jackson said. "But I
felt like we played well."
Jackson said the team has a lot of
depth and will probably work other
players into the lineup this week-
end against Furman and Baylor.
Furman has a hall-of-fame
coach in Paul Scarpa, and Baylor is
ranked No. 7.
"The competition is going to
move up drastically, so we need
to make improvements," Jackson
said. "Teams are going to test us a
lot more, so we'll have to respond."
Fresh off its victory against UCF
on Wednesday, the UF women's
tennis team will travel to Greenville,
S.C., to play Furman.
After Wednesday's match in
the cold weather, tomorrow's
match should be a little warmer
at Furman's indoor Mickel Tennis
The match was originally
scheduled so the Gators could
prepare for the NCAA Indoor
Championships held next week,
head coach Roland Thornqvist
The Gators were forced to
withdraw' from the tournament
in order to recuperate from some
minor player injuries and rest.
"We had too many unforced
errors against UCF," assistant
coach Dave Balogh said. "We
need to work on keeping the ball
in the court and having longer
rallies this weekend."
After the UF women's win
against UCF on Wednesday,
sophomore Diana Srebrovic said
doubles is where she and the
team need to improve the most.
"In the fall, it's a lot of individ-
ual tournaments," Srebrovic said.
"We just haven't played together

UF sophomore Greg Oullette flustered the opposition, defeating
UCF's Sinan Sudas in straight sets on Thursday. The Gators swept
the Golden Knights 7-0 in their season-opening team match.

Rested Vandy has advantage on tired UF
Gators host Georgia
By CHRIS WHITE
Things couldn't get more
frustrating for the UF gymnastics
team after last week's match in
Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Gators fell
behind early, cut No. 3 Alabama's
lead to less than 1 point by the final
event, but after their first two falls of
the season, lost to Crimson Tide.
But the No. 5 Gators (4-1, 0-1
Southeastern Conference) enter to-
night's match against No. 1 Georgia
(6-0, 1-0 SEC) with one more leg
to stand on as sophomore Nicola
Willis returns to a more prominent
position in the lineup.
Willis, an all-around competitor,
saw action only on the vault against
Alabama after injuring her ankle
against Oregon State on Jan. 13.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn said she
also was looking forward to the re-
turn of another crucial competitor to
the lineup tonight: a home crowd.
After facing a tough Alabama
team in front of an even tougher
crowd of 15,162 the third larg-
est attendance mark in collegiate
gymnastics history the Gators
know what kind of blow fans can
deal a rival.
"It really does make a huge
difference if we have that support
fan support and as much yelling
and cheering," Faehn said. "It really
makes a huge difference, not only
in helping motivate and pump up
our athletes and help their perfor-
mances, but it also just creates an
environment that's special to our
athletes but also is intimidating to
The Bulldogs should know how
tough it can be to compete in the
O'Connell Center. Their last visit
during last year's NCAA Southeast
Regional Championships was a
While UF won the meet, the
Bulldogs were almost eliminated
after faltering on the balance beam,
accumulating three falls. Their
only saving grace was a Denver
team that stuttered and fell on the
beam, which allowed the Bulldogs
to slip through to the NCAA
The Bulldogs then rallied to win
the national title, and UF returned
home with a respectable No. 7 fin-
ish, keeping the perennial rivalry
"It's really good for the team to
have a good rivalry," Willis said.
"It's great. It pushes you that much
But the Gators don't walk into
tonight's meet with a chip on their
collective shoulder. The team has
tried to prepare for it as just another
match, Willis said.
"We've just got to go out there
and do our job the best we can."
she said. "Just think about what
we did in practice and try to make-
it pay off."
Faehn said she's not worried
about the Bulldogs' rank and hasn't
even seen the team perform this
season, but she is confident that her
team can raise the bar against tough
competitors like Georgia.
"The only way we'll be able to \
tell where we stand with them is
when we compete against them
face-to-face," Faehn said. "I feel that
we have every chance in the world
to beat them.
"We have a very talented,
strong team, but obviously so does
Georgia. So what we have to do is

"They've had a chance
to focus on themselves and
where they Want to get better,
and then they've really had a
chance to dissect us."
That ability to prepare
puts the Gators at a distinct
disadvantage, Donovan said.
"When you're [17-2],
you're going to get a differ-
ent look every single game,"
Donovan said. "Teams are
going to do things that they
haven't done before. So a
lot of times, we're guessing

what's the strategy going to
