Pike pageant packs club
By KYLIE CRAIG
Modeling, interviews and weight lift-
ing in a bikini all helped Pi Kappa Alpha
Fraternity raise dose to $5,000 Tuesday night
in its first-ever Dreamgirl Beauty Pageant.
The philanthropy event, which raised
money for the Trigeminal Neuralgia
Association, drew more than 600 spectators
to The Venue nightclub.
TNA raises awareness for trigeminal
neuralgia, a nerve disease that causes its
sufferers severe pain on the side of the jaw
Pike President Rob Wagner said he was
amazed with the number of people who
showed up, adding that the Dreamgirl pag-
eant is Pike's national philanthropy event.
"It was a great turnout in other chapters,"
Wagner said. "They've raised thousands of
dollars all over the nation."
Sixteen UF students competed in the pag-
eant. The contestants competed in formal
wear, talent and interview categories.
UF junior Sanja Komljenovic, 21, was one
of two non-Greek students to compete.
"I always used to hang out with the guys.
... They just called me up and asked me [to
do it]," she said.
Komljenovic recently won a Reef bikini
contest but said she has no experience with
"I would love to do pageants. I just don't
have the talent," she said.
For Dreamgirl, she decided to entertain
the crowd while bench-pressing in a bikini

with a laugh. Tim Hussin/ Alligator Staff

Despite any apparent abuse, enrollment during the
1920s reached new heights.
At the start of the decade, UF had a student body of
more than 600 students. By the end of the decade, more

'Da Vinci Code' sparks Christian history discussion
By JULIE BANCROFT
Alligator Contributing Writer
With a stable spot for 149 weeks on The
New York Times best-seller list and an
impending movie release, "The Da Vinci
Code" has students wondering what parts
of the novel are fact and which are fiction.
Mother Magdalena, from the Orthodox
Monastery of the Transfiguration in
Ellwood City, Pa., will lead a discussion
about the evidence supporting and dis-
proving the claims in Dan Brown's popu-
lar novel. The Christian Study Center will
host the event Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
"I think it's a wonderful opportunity
for us to explore our faith and learn things
about it," Mother Magdalena said.
The Orthodox Christian Fellowship, a
UF-sponsored club with about 75 mem-
bers, is organizing Thursday's dialogue.
Club member and coordinator Kathy
Stark said that many of the findings in the
book are derived from early writings from
the fathers of the Orthodox Church. The
writings are read frequently in the church.
"I would like to see students who have
heard about what 'The Da Vinci Code'
"I think it's a wonderful opportu-
nity for us to explore our faith and
learn things about it."
says and are still questioning whether or
not it's true, and students who want to
look more deeply into Jesus' life and the
history of the early church," she said.
Mother Magdalena, who has lived a
monastic life for 14 years, will examine
the book from a cultural, historical and
biblical point of view.
She plans to speak about topics such as
whether or not Jesus was married and the
life of Mary Magdalene.
She said that everyone who reads the
book, no matter his or her level of faith,
may question his or her beliefs.
"Anything that can spur us to under-
stand our faith better is good," she said.
She said she began studying the book
because of the claims it makes against
Mary Magdalene, the Bible character for
whom she was named.

The Student Senate resolu-
tion, passed Tuesday night
with one vote against it, op-

which would cut state-based
financial assistance to inter-
national students and redirect
that money toward Floridians.

wrote the resolution, urged the
about 15 international students
who attended the forum to
make their voices heard.
"We need to take action.
Only concern is not enough,"
The House bill would affect
about 100 UF students because
it does not affect assistantships
or work-study programs, ac-
cording to statistics from the
UF International Center.
However, Long said the
wording of the bill is ambigu-
ous, and it could eventually
affect more students.

Linebacker a good
choice for Unite ticket
Student Body vice president.
The UF football linebacker will round out Unite Party's
ticket, along with- Student Sens. Jared Hernandez, for presi-
dent, and Lola Bovell, for treasurer.
And we'll be honest. We think he's a great pick.
In a press release, Siler spoke to his local celebrity status in
"This is not just about being a recognizable name. This is
abott marking the end of politics as usual," he proclaimed.
But let's get real.
Even if Siler doesn't want to capitalize on his celebrity to
draw out the votes of the multitudes, you can bet that Unite
and Hemandez won't have the same hesitation.
Fame must have been one of the linebacker's biggest sell-
Unite has thus far struggled to put together a credible list
of candidates. Party officials probably saw Siler as a means of
digging themselves out of the hole they've found themselves
in early during this campaign. Before yesterday's announce-
ment, Unite had wrapped up little backing from the student
By selecting Jared Hemandez as their presidential candi-
date, they sought to cull Greek support. It looked like they
had only succeeded in garnering the votes of a few rogue frat
houses. With treasurer candidate Lola Bovell, Unite wanted to
energize Hispanic student voters.
But in the face of Swamp Party's almost assured and near-
total Greek dominance, the race appeared to be over before it
Now, with the star power of one Brandon Siler, all bets are
off. Using his fame to promote the Unite cause is okay with
us; Siler is a brilliant political selection primarily because of
Most Student Government elections wind up being deter-
mined by the Greeks. Unite now has the potential to spark an
unprecedented interest in SG among the student body.
For the first time in a long time, we could see this election
being swayed not by special interests, but by the heretofore-
And we can't wait.
But Siler is a good pick for more than just his potential
popularity with voters. Siler is a breed rarely found in SG
political elections. He is an athlete, yes, but above all else he
is an SG outsider.
We don't know for certain, but it's probably a safe bet that
Siler has never even been to a Student Senate meeting.
But where others see a liability, we see only a fresh per-
spective. Siler has yet to be turned by the ever-pervasive and
ever-corrupting power of student politics. In our book, that's
a huge advantage.
Siler isn't perfect. If elected, he'll have to balance school,
football and SG. That's no mean feat.
And it remains uncertain how much time Coach Urban
Meyer will let Siler devote to the SG administration.
So his potential time constraints don't exactly inspire con-
But the chairwoman of the now-defunct Team: Most
Valuable Party had nothing but kind words for Siler. Andrea
Guttag declared, "Brandon Siler has never once in his life
backed down from a commitment or a promise."
We're glad to hear it.
Maybe now Unite will be able to shake off the funk that's
plagued them thus far in their political crusade.
Maybe now we can finally have a real SG election.

Politics lacks great
Mediocrity, thy name is George W. Bush.
If the preceding six years of governance
weren't enough evidence of that, the State of the
Union address on Jan. 31 hammered home the point. The
president delivered a monotonous, tedious, small speech,
fully achieving his goal of saying nothing in the most unin-
teresting language imaginable.
It was obvious from his first moments in the national
spotlight that President Bush was an uninspired public
speaker. His speechwriters haven't helped him they
have consistently provided the- president with addresses
composed in dull, inelegant prose. Of course, they had
precious little choice. The president's cadence and delivery
would make "Ask not what your country can do for you
..." sound laughable.
But as with many issues, President Bush is not himself
the illness. He is but a symptom of a greater disease in
American politics. This rhetorical mediocrity cuts across
partisan borders; it's been embraced by almost every politi-
Who are the great orators in the political parties? Bill
Clinton was a solid speaker, extraordinary in small group
settings, but nothing special at the "podium speeches."
Much the same could be said of the Democrats' two char-
ismatic icons: John Roberts and Barack Obama. In the last
election, the party of JFK nominated John Kerry, a man who
doesn't so much command the English language as wrestle
it to the ground and bash its head in with a nearby rock.
The Republican Party is similarly barren of orators, with
the exception of Alan Keyes, who removes himself from
society's mainstream whenever he opens his mouth.
It's easy to denigrate the longing for superior rhetoric as
the elevation of style over substance. As a country, we love

the people want, and if the people wanted brilliant oratory,
candidates would give it to them.
Oratory is supposed to move us, to lift us up and inspire
us to reach heights we never imagined. It's supposed to
bring us to our feet, to make our hearts stop and our hair
stand on end.
Politicians don't need to ostentatiously display their
vocabulary in every speech.
But the English language is a massive world. If our
representatives would be willing to occasionally make us
thumb through a dictionary, we'd all be better off for it.

Si UAA jilts Gator basketball fans
SI just read a response to a let-
ter about the Dodge logo on the
Dazzlers' outfits. The student
was looking at it from a "college
student perspective." He said he
got a free T-shirt. However, not
all students were given this op-
portunity. Despite the fact that I
had long ago signed up for the
game and entered the arena dur-
ing player introductions, I did
not receive a T-shirt. In fact, three
friends and myself did not receive
seats. We were forced to stand or
sit on stairs. When extra T-shirts
were given to season ticket hold-
ers, I asked for one but was told
they weren't giving any more to
students. I know there are many
like me, but I am a die-hard Gators
S fan. I have missed one home foot-
ball game, maybe 10 home basket-
ball games, and attended about 60
home baseball games in my 2.5
years here, not'including numer-
ous road trips. The shirt's not the
point; I'm just curious how much
money I have to donate (on top of
tuition, merchandise, etc.) to not
be treated like crap by the UAA.
Other e-mail options available
I am writing in response to
David Coleman's comments
about WebMail. He states that
only WebMail provides the flex-
ibility to check messages at any
computer' with Internet access?
The information on the WebMail
page gives any user the means
to set up clients using the IMAP
server. The client will then allow
the user to check their e-mail from
any computer connected to the
Internet. The best part of this is
that almost all computers come
preinstalled with some kind of
e-mail client. Users can simply sit
down, create the account, check
and send messages and then de-
lete the account. I for one use a
client to check my Gator mail and
have never had any issues check-
ing my messages at home or any-
where else, regardless of whether
WebMail was working correctly.
Man's fate tied to Mother Nature
Poison monkeys? A fight with
nature for survival? You have to
be kidding me! Perhaps before
Jimmy Mailliard commented on
Kumar's article he should have
looked up from his Republican
handbill or fabulistic Bible and
done some basic ecological re-
search. He would have quickly re-
alized that Mother Nature doesn't
"attack" us with natural disasters.
The floods and droughts he refers
to are largely from human-in-
duced actions. It's pure ignorance
to think mankind's advancement
comes about through the suppres-
sion of the environment. Our en-
tire lifestyle is based on enjoying
and utilizing the natural world. If
it loses, it's actually "hard cheese"
Free speech shouldn't be limited
Much has been made recently
of not only a Danish paper's right
to publish cartoons depicting the
Islamic prophet Muhammad, but
also about the decisions of other
papers throughout Europe to re-
publish the same cartoons. While
demonstrations aid protests have
had violent and even fatal reper-
cussions, I think every American
newspaper, and even our own
government, should stand behind
the actions as progress toward free
speech in the Middle East instead
of shunning the Danish paper and
calling the cartoons inflamma-
tory and inappropriate. Altering
editorial decisions for fear of
what terrorists or extremists will
do is negotiating with terrorists.
Allowing terrorists to scare any
newspaper or government into si-
lence is allowing them to continue
their grip not only on our psyche,
but also the Middle East.
Innocent people will continue
to die for many reasons at the
hands of terrorists, whether car-
toons are published or not. As
long as newspapers speak freely
in spite of fear there is a chance
that one day terrorism will claim
fewer innocent lives.

Editorial shows need for office
The, closing line of Monday's
editorial regarding UF's

reading the column, I couldn't

"costly bureaucracy" and a "way

shows just how focused on im-

Man arrested for breaking into Boardwalk apartment
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
A 37-year-old man was arrested Monday
for breaking into an apartment at The
Boardwalk and stealing items totaling
Howard L. A. Bandoo broke into the
apartment at 2701 SW 13th St. by prying
the front door open with a tool, according
to an arrest report.
Bandoo took three samurai swords, a
TV, a DVD player, a VHS player, a stereo
and a computer printer, according to the
Police said he later pawned the items at
Oaks Pawn and Jewelry, located on 6702
W. Newberry Road, and Best Jewelry and
Loan, located on 523 NW Third Ave.
The woman who lives in the apartment
identified Bandoo as another resident who
lives upstairs, according to the report.
The woman said she would see him out;
side her apartment door smoking cigarettes
during early morning hours and that it
would frighten her, the report stated.
Bandoo denies that he broke into the
apartment because he is under house ar-
rest. He said that he bought the items from
another man near a Dumpster in the com-
plex, according to the report.
Police said Bandoo could not provide a
name for the man who sold him the items
and could not say when he bought the

To Honor Our Lost President
The Many Sides Of Dr. A. A.

Vice-President Farr Says Dr.
Murphree Was State's
The Florida Alligator
Thursday, Jan. 19, 1928
Volume XIX, Number 13
In a spirit of reverence and
solemnity, students of the univer-
sity educators from all of Florida
and citizens of Gainesville met
in a memorial service on last
Sunday afternoon to contemplate
the life and do honor to the name
of our lost president, Dr. Albert
Dr. Farr opened the services
by saying "We have gathered
to attempt to put into words the
many sides of life of our dear
president so that the students of
the university and the people of
the state may know the evalua-
tion placed on his life."
Sudden Death Of
A. Murphree A
Great Shock To
The People Of Fla.
Relations of Executive To
Students And Faculty
We are still too much shocked
to be able to write a fitting no-
tice of the death of Dr. Albert
Alexander Murphree, which took
place suddenly on the morning
of Dec. 20. The evening before
his passing he apparently was in
the best of health and more than
one of his friends had recently
remarked on how well he was
His sudden death shocked
the whole community, for he was
easily the most outstanding man
in it. His death caused and still
causes the whole state to feel a
deep sense of loss. Apparently in
vigorous health, we all thought
he would be able to do much for
the good of the whole country;
no man was needed more.
His relations with both stu-
dents and officers of the univer-
sity were ideal. Not one of the
whole number but loved him.
His was the master spirit inspir-
ing the others to greater efforts.
And no man could be more mod-
est, more willing to let others
have the glory.
Speech by Student
B.F. Mizell on the
passing of Murphree
as reprinted in the

that ever befell a student body
came to ours on the morning
of December 20th when it was
announced that our beloved
President was dead.

"A great storm sweeps the
land and it is devastated. In a

and no trace of the catastrophe
is left. An earthquake splits the

more beautiful city is built on the

been taken from us and no man

built in response to the growing
popularity of the gridiron.

Multiple colleges were added

Journalism and Architecture.
In addition, UF's radio sta-
tion, WRUF, went on the air in
1928. Each weekly edition of
the Alligator listed airing times
for programs on the university's
radio station. The programming
ended by 11 every night.
In 1923, Florida Blue Key
was established and was given
the same responsibility for
Homecoming events in 1924
that it has today. The first dean of
students, Benjamin Tolbert, was
appointed in 1927.
A weekly humor column in
the Alligator, called "Atrocities,"
Published goofy quotes and sto-
ries and spared no opportunity
to poke fun at freshman "rats."
The slogan read: "To touch with

vagaries of men and make this

The jokes were indicative of
college humor the time:

UF focuses on
* THE GATORS WILL TRY TO AVOID ANOTHER
LETDOWN AGAINST SOUTH CAROLINA.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
The Gators seemed to be on top of the college basketball
universe after defeating Kentucky on Saturday.
Two weeks ago against South Carolina, however, things
weren't so rosy. Coming off of a loss to Tennessee on the
road, the Gators responded with their worst performance
of the season against the Gamecocks.
Revenge may be the operative word tonight when UF
(20-2, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) hosts South Carolina
(11-10, 2-6 SEC) at 7 in the O'Connell Center.
"Goin back and looking at the game, I don't think
there's any question that they outplayed
us," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"[South Carolina] outperformed us,
dominated us in a lot of different areas."
During the debacle in Columbia, S.C.,
the Gators turned the ball over 17 times
to South Carolina's eight and allowed
the Gamecocks to grab 14 offensive
"I'll tell you, if that happened [again]
I'd be really disappointed in our team," Donovan said.
"We're playing against a team that really outperformed
us a couple weeks ago in Columbia. The final score says 6
points [was the difference], but we were down by 15 in the
second half. We were dominated in the game.
*" "I would hope our guys would be excited about having
the opportunity to compete again and to play again. That
ha, been our team's attitude, or disposition, this year after
Donovan pointed to both of the Gators' wins in New
York during the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic as well as their
road win against Georgia as instances when his team per-
formed well in its next outing.
Joakim Noah said after the defeat at the hands of the
Gamecocks, he could tell that the UF didn't come into the
game with proper focus, a sentiment echoed by his team-
"We didn't come with any energy, intensity or any-
thing," Taurean Green said. "They got all the hustle plays.
We want to get them back because we know we didn't even
play anywhere close to where we're capable of playing.
They beat us to every locse ball; they just wanted it more
That game was the last one UF forward Corey Brewer
started before removing himself from the starting lineup,
suffering from a sprained ankle. He managed to play 31
minutes but scored just 7 points against South Carolina.
But against Kentucky, he had a bit of a revival, scoring 16
points and dishing out four assists. The Gators know that a
healthier Brewer will make a significant difference the sec-
ond time around against the Gamecocks.
"There's no question Corey has the ability to make
game-changing plays with his length, quickness and
speed," Donovan said. "But more than anything else, he
gives us an experienced player who provides some depth
and maybe a little bit of size across our front line to help us
Gators experience infield shuffle
Davis, McArthur man the middle
By BRYAN JONES
Believe it or not, Justin Tordi is
still having-a huge effect on the UF
With Tordi electing to sign with
the Cincinnati Reds organization one
day before the start of fall classes, the
Gators were forced to find a replace-
ment for their former shortstop.
Ultimately, UF coach Pat
McMahon reluctantly decided to
move Adam Davis from second base
over to his old high school position.
"I am happy for Justin in so many
ways ... but obviously moving what
I feel is one of the premiere second
basemen out of second base to
play another position is not ideal,"
McMahon said. "By the same token,
Adam has been a shortstop most of
his career until [now]. So he looks
forward to that as a challenge.
"We ask a lot of things out of our
shortstop in commanding interior
defenses, things that we really think
are important, and he has done re-
ally well with that."
Former UF third baseman
Brandon McArthur will take over for
Davis at second, while sophomore
Matt Gaski, junior David Cash and
senior Daniel Brooks will likely com-
pete for playing time at third base.
While all the shuffling may seem
After starting most of last season at third base, sophomore Brandon
McArthur will shift to second base this season for the Gators.
somewhat confusing, both Davis
and McArthur said they are more
comfortable with this season's in-
"Like I've told a lot of people,
[shortstop] is a place I have always
played in high school," Davis said.
"Obviously, getting here always
playing shortstop, it was more of
a change for me moving to second
base than going back to shortstop.
"[It entails] a little more responsi-
bility kind of more the general of
the field. It will be a pretty smooth
transition, I think."
Despite practicing at third base,
Matt LaPorta will likely remain at
first base, and Brian Jeroloman will
be UF's starting catcher.
LaPorta, who led the nation in
home runs last season, is already be-
ing mentioned as a National Player
of the Year candidate, but it's a po-
tential honor he hopes won't affect
his play on the field.
"I try to overlook that kind of
stuff," LaPorta said. "The real focus
here is how well we do as a team.
"All those accolades and all those
awards are nice to have, and it is
nice to say that you got them, but
it is a lot nicer to say, 'Yeah, I went
out to Omaha [Neb.] for the national
championship, and yeah, we won it
Jeroloman will finally find some
relief behind the plate this season.
After a lack of depth at catcher
forced Jeroloman to play significant
innings at the position last season,
UF's coaches hope that freshman
Cody Neer and junior college trans-
fer Austin Pride can occasionally fill
While it will look very different
from last year, the Gators' infield

The heart of a team that went all
the way to the finals of the College
World Series last season, the Gators'
infield could be the best in the coun-
try this year.
"I think it would be very close,"
McArthur said. "We had to change
up some things, obviously. Me mov-
ing over to second, Adam moving
over to short and either David or
Matt starting at third, there are some

Sloppy start haunts Gators
By JENNA MARINA and ANTONIO GONZALEZ
After the UF men's golf team's first-day perfor-
mance at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate in Ponte
Vedra Beach, Coach Buddy Alexander felt ill.
"Have you ever gotten sick?" Alexander said.
"Because that's kind of how I felt. I never remember

Senior Brett Stegmaier birdied four holes, finish-

tournament with a team-best 74 (2 over par). His

for eighth place.

Yet Stegmaier couldn't mask his disappointment
with the Gators' seventh-place finish.
"It was very cold. It was very windy," he said.
"But everyone has to play in that weather, so that's
not really an excuse."-
Despite shooting 1 under par and making the
Gators' greatest comeback in the second round, it
seemed senior Matt Every could not shake his first-
round bogeying woes.
Every bogeyed five holes and double-bogeyed
two more to shoot a 6-over-par 78.
"Matt's a big-time player. He's usually very
consistent," Alexander said. "He hasn't played
particularly well since he came back from break.
He's working on a few things, but I think this was a
Freshman Billy Horschel and sophomore Jessie
Mudd, who played individually, matched Every
and also finished at 6 over.
Freshman Toby Ragland sank four birdies to post
a 75 (3 over).
Every, Horschel and Ragland each finished the
tournament with an overall score of 230 (14 over).
The-trio tied for 25th place.
After bogeying eight holes in the second round,
sophomore Manuel Villegas experienced deja vu in
the third round to card another 80 (8 over) and an
overall 26-over 242.
As for the rest of the season, Alexander is plan-
ning on shaking things up.
"We'll regroup and change the lineup a little bit,"
Alexander said. "[Well] certainly try to get James
Vargas in there. He missed a tournament in the
fall, and we finished seventh. So, if that's the recipe,
maybe hell play [from now on]."
WOMEN'S TENNIS BACK AFTER BREAK: A break in
action last week gave the No. 2 UF women's tennis
team (2-0) something it did and didn't need.
With freshman Keri Robison plagued by a sore
shoulder, sophomore Alex Liles slowed by pain
in her feet and senior Boglarka Berecz physically
drained, the Gators needed to recover.
But, having played only twice, and with matches
against powerhouses Miami, Florida State and Texas
looming, the Gators needed to play, Coach Roland
Putting short-term goals aside, Thomqvist with-
drew UF from last weekend's National Team Indoor
Championships, creating an 11-day break.
The Gators have healed their injuries, or in
some instances bandaged them, and return to ac-
tion today against South Florida at 3 p.m. at the Ring
"It will definitely be the toughest test to date,"
Thomqvist said. "However, I don't think we should
lose this match."
Last year, the Bulls only sent four players to
Gainesville and were forced to default two singles
matches and one doubles match. Of the four singles
matches played, UF dropped two, but ultimately
won the match 5-2.
Thomqvist said he will be paying particular at-
tention to UF senior Alexis Gordon, who will be
playing in just her third match since returning to
Gordon is getting more comfortable being back
in the lineup and has shown improvements in her
backhand, he said.
The team's--najor concern is doubles, where the
Gators have been struggling, Thomqvist said.
In their last match, UF's No. 1 doubles team of
sophomore Whitney Benik and junior Nina Suvak
lost 8-6 to Furman.
While having to cope with minor injuries,
Thomqvist said the team is still doing what it can to
improve right now without jeopardizing long-term
And he said players are buying into it.
"You can't win a championship in January,"
Thomqvist said. "But you can lose one."

Luckily for new UF softball

Howard aind Shelley Stevens in
what could be the most stable
- albeit least deep phase of
the Gators' game.
While Howard and Stevens
are battling for the center field
spot, freshman Kim Waleszonia
has swooped in and secured a
starting spot in right field.
But opposing pitchers will
still focus on Cameron, who led
UF in batting average, home
runs and RBI last season.
Cameron just might be
taking lessons from UF foot-
ball linebacker Brandon Siler,
"I compare Lindsey to a line-
backer; she's got a linebacker's
mentality," Walton said. "She's
a game-changer. Having some-
body like that on your team
definitely makes an impact.
"When she's healthy and

The Gators' combined seven
years of experience in the out-
field should pay off when their
season starts on Friday.
"[The experience] will help
a ton," Walton said. "That's
one thing that has been going
pretty well throughout the
whole fall and spring. Even
though we're only four-deep
in the outfield, opposed to-a
typical six or eight, we're still
very consistent, and I'm excited
about their work ethic."
After playing with Howard
and Stevens for the past two
years, Cameron has developed
chemistry with her fellow out-
"We're strong vocally, and
we have really great command
of the outfield," she said. "We
know what to do in every given
situation and are always com-
municating and helping each
While the three upperclass-
men have been playing with
each other for the past two
years, the same can't be said for
the newcomer Waleszonia.
But after helping Fontana
(Calif.) High win a league
championship in every year of
her high school career, the jump
to the collegiate ranks may not
be as problematic for her as it
would other freshmen.
"Kim has done a great job of
coming in and getting adjusted
to the college atmosphere and
bringing her consistency every
day," Walton said. "Obviously
[the competition among the
four] will help breed success."
Cameron agrees about
Waleszonia's transition. She
also said it might not matter
who starts in the outfield, since
every opponent will learn to
respect UF's arm strength.
"I don't think too many
teams are going to try to run on
us," Cameron said. "But if they
do, we'll be able to take care of
