Swamp, Unite


announce goals

* UNITE ANNOUNCED ITS PLATFORM, WHILE
SWAMP RELEASED ITS 'CORE VALUES.'

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
lewis@alligator.org

With 15 days left until Spring's Student Government
election, the two organizations making a bid for office have
begun pinpointing different goals and ideals.
The race's two political parties, Unite and Swamp, each
unveiled mission statements Sunday evening, though one
came in the form of a full platform while the other arrived
as a set of "core issues."
Although members of the Swamp Party initially said
they did not plan to release a platform until later this week,
party, officials scrambled to compile a list of goals upon
learning the Unite Party had completed its entire platform.
"We were very deliberate on our process of putting the
platform together," Unite Party leader Adam Roberts said.
"It's not just a list of five ideas, it's a list of 50 ideas."
He said a cornerstone of Unite's platform is its "proac-
tive outreach" goal section, which calls for Student Senate
agendas to be published online at least 24 hours in ad-
vance.
Student Sen. Jared Hernandez, who tops Unite's ticket
as its Student Body presiden-
Student Government tial candidate, added that he
Elections hopes to address broader goals
extending through both UF
and its surrounding community.
By increasing resources for sexual assault awareness
programs, Hernandez said he intends to confront the issue
through SG and raise concern for it across campus.
If elected, he also plans to hold a summit on race rela-
tions, which he listed as another "bigger issue" he wants
SG to approach.
"We bring in intellectuals leaders in the field of
politics and business and science," Hernandez said, "and
we need to talk about race relations in a positive way that
begins to destigmatize it."
Swamp's full platform is still in the works, party spokes-
man Josh Weiss said, but it will be released Tuesday after-
noon at Turlington Plaza.
After leatiing that Unite was preparing to release its
platform Sunday, Weiss said his organization wanted to
share some "core issues" that will likely appear on its plat-
form and offered a handful of specific ideas.
"We want to see more diverse faculty in terms of both
race and gender," Weiss wrote in an e-mail.
He said in an interview Sunday that Swamp is also look-
ing to add broadband Internet access to graduate students
living in UF's family housing villages.
"They currently have to use dial-up Internet," Weiss
said. "We think that's horrible."

Murder suspect attempts suicide


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

The 19-year-old who was arrested
for the murder of two SFCC students
tried to commit suicide with a razor
early Saturday, according to the Marion
County Sheriff's Office.
Leo Boatman cut his right forearm
with a razor while in his jail cell and
later said he swallowed a piece of it.
"We don't know how he got hold of
the razor," said Marion County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Sue Livoti.
Boatman was taken to Munroe
Regional Medical Center after a correc-
tions officer discovered the wound dur-
ing a routine check, according to police.


Boatman was arrested last month for
the shooting of Amber Peck and John
Parker, both 26, while they were on a
camping trip in Ocala National Forest.
Peck and Parker
were shot multiple
times with an AK-47
assaultrifle, the same
weapon Boatman
had stolen from his
uncle's friend.
Livoti said
Boatn Boatman has been
on suicide watch
since he was arrested in January. He
was placed in a special Plexiglas cell
that contains only abed, Livoti said.
Boatman received 12 staples in his
arm Saturday, but he tried to take them
out. Police took him back to the jail after


he was treated, Livoti said.
A few hours after being in the cell,
Boatman began bleeding from his
mouth and told officers that he had bit-
ten his tongue. He later told an officer
he swallowed a piece of the razor.
Boatman was given X-rays, which
did not show that he had swallowed a
razor, Livoti said.
Livoti said Boatman is in a restricted
area where officers check on him every
15 minutes and that the internal affairs
department is investigating how he ob-
tained the razor.
"He's in his own cell all the time,"
Livoti said. "He doesn't mix with other
inmates."
Livoti said Boatman also receives
his meals in a Styrofoam tray without
utensils.

Local's collections range from eccentric to smelly

Julie Bancroft/ Alligator
Thomas Olmsted shows off his collection of left-handed.items to onlookers dt the 27th annual Collec-
tors' Day event at the Florida Museum of Natural History on Saturday.


By JULIE BANCROFT
Alligator Contributing Writer

Anyone can look, but only left-
handers can touch.
,Thomas Olmsted's long gray
beard stretched down to his baby-
blue southpaw T-shirt as he re-
peated his rule to each of those who
came to check out his. table full of
lefty boomerangs, notebooks, rulers
and baseball gloves.
"Ifs a disease, but it's fun,"
Olmsted said of his hobby.
Nestled in among the color-
ful butterflies and the mastodon
skeleton at the Florida Museum of
Natural History, close to 50 collec-
tors carefully arranged their fables
of prized findings for curious view-
ers. The event took place Saturday
morning as a part of the museum's
27th annual Collectors' Day event.
In between the Summer
Olympics memorabilia and antique
lanterns, one could find Olmsted, a
Gainesville resident, eagerly chat-
ting with passersby.
Tiffany Ireland, education as-
sistant at the museum, said most of
the people who have exhibits at the
event are returning collectors.
After 25 consecutive years of
exhibiting at the Collectors' Day,


Olmstead is the longest-standing
collector at the event. He has more
than 40 different collections ranging
from coffee cans and asparagus-
related things to banana peel labels
and dancing bears.
"I call myself one-eighth pack
rat," he said, describing his ware-
house full of labeled collections.
Olmstead thinks his asparagus
collection is the one he's become
most famous for. This assortment
of more than 400 asparagus-related
things has even appeared on nation-
al television. He said people are still
talking about the exhibit full of as-
paragus dishes, tools,
On books and artwork.
*. -' Olmstead and his
wife have found that
there's no vacation from collecting.
When traveling, they often stop at
stores and run in just to see if they
have any coffee cans or banana la-
bels not yet in his collection.
"There's something sexy when
you find what you have been look-
ing for," he said.
On a trip to California, his wife
took two half-empty suitcases with
her. She brought back one suitcase
filled with 30 different California
coffee cans.
"There's always more you want,"
he said.

Flower prices escalate as Valentine's Day nears


By ALl SOULE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Passionate procrastinators: This Valentine's
Day might break your bank account.
Prices for flowers can increase by more than
25 percent per arrangement in the weeks lead-
ing up to Valentine's Day, said Stacey Hardee,
who works at Floral Expressions Florist.
This year at Floral Expressions, a dozen
roses in a vase will cost $74.95, Hardee said. If
it weren't the holiday season, the roses would
cost $57.95. The price increase is due to whole-
salers raising their prices, she said.


Beau Crevasse, who works at Crevasse's
Regency Florist, said he hopes to sell 5,000 to
6,000 roses. At his store, a dozen roses in a vase
cost $75, he said. His store sells numerousbags
of rose petals.
"That's become a hot thing
now," Crevasse said. "We are
News starting to sell more and more
plants, like tulips, azaleas and
violets. They are good for dorm
rooms and offices."
More than 60,000 flowers have been or-
dered for Floral Expressions' two locations for
the week of Valentine's Day.
For many florists, Valentine's Day consti-


"We are starting to sell more and
more plants, like tulips, azaleas
and violets. They are good for dorm
rooms and offices."
Beau Crevasse
Crevasse's Regency Florist

tutes a big part of the yearly business.
Tara Pisel, 28, who has worked in the florist
industry her whole life, said Gainesville Floral
Exchange expects an 18 percent increase in its
profits from last year. The florist has ordered


20,000 roses, 60 to 70 percent of which are red.
A dozen roses in a vase costs $69.95, she said.
"We usually have a line out the door all
day," Pisel said. "We did 800 deliveries last
year, and this year we are anticipating 1,000."
One-third of Floral Expressions' business
for the year comes from Valentine's Day sales,
Hardee said.
"[Our store] on Northwest 23rd Avenue
made $40,000 on Valentine's Day alone last
year," Hardee said. "We usually average
$4,000 to $5,000 per day the week of the holi-
day and $9,000 to $10,000 in the days before."
A regular day averages from $3,000 to
$4,000 in sales, she said.

* THE EVENT AIMED TO RAISE
AWARENESS ABOUT ISRAEL.

By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

Israel Awareness Week culmi-
nated Sunday afternoon with falafels
and potato sack races.
Gators for Israel held their fourth
annual Pro-Israel Rally and Festival
to raise awareness about Jewish and
Israeli cultures.
"The purpose is to just show Israel
to UF," said Stephanie Fraiman, di-
rector of the event.
About 60 attendees gathered in
the Plaza of the Americas wearing "I
love Israel" shirts while munching on
falafels, pitas and hummus.
Events alternated between
Maccabi games, the Israeli equiva-
lent to the Olympics, and speakers
like Student Body President Joe
Goldberg.
Goldberg said that when he was
running for office last year, his main
goal was to reinstate the Israel study
abroad program, which he success-
fully achieved.
"As a Jew Student Body presi-
dent, I think it is so important the
message and what I portray to the
student body," Goldberg said. "With
a last name like Goldberg, it's hard to
escape the fact that I'm Jewish."
Campus Rabbi Jonathan S. Siger


spoke about UF's connection to
Israel.
"The reason that we can say that
we are truly free at this moment in
time is because of the state of Israel,"
he said.
Siger said Gainesville has the larg-
est Jewish student population outside
of Israel, which offers students the
opportunity to make a difference.
"The fact of the matter is, it's
critical that we continue to tend to the
state of Israel," he said. "If you do not
take responsibility for taking care of
the state of Israel, no one else will."
Siger said he was disappointed
with the low turnout to the rally, add-
ing he feels like it was his own fault
the entire plaza was not filled.
"It is great to sit here and eat some
falafel and to sing songs and hang out
with friends that we already know
care and are invested," he said, "but
there's approximately 5,940 people
that aren't here that should be."
Siger challenged the crowd to tell
five people in the next five months
about what Israel means to them.
Students also advocated the birth-
right trip, which offers a free trip to
Israel to any Jewish person who has
not been and is between the ages of
18 and 26.
The rally coincided with Tu
B'Shvat, which is the Jewish equiva-
lent of Arbor Day. Following the
rally, students planted fruit trees to
better the community.

ACLU selects UF student finalist


* COLIN MCCANDLESS SUBMITTED AN ESSAY
ON CORPORATE GREED AND THE WAR IN IRAQ.

By KAT LASKOWSKI
Alligator Writer
A UF student's politically charged poem may soon
gain national recognition and possibly win him some
cash..
Colin McCandless is one of 14 finalists in the American
Civil Liberties Union's second annual Stand Up for
Freedom contest.
McCandless' submission, "Ellis Island 2005: AWarning
to Would-be Immigrants Posted on the Statue of Liberty,"
touches on a number of controversial topics, including the
war in Iraq, corporate greed and media consolidation.
"The poem has to do with my beliefs, my value sys-
tems," McCandless said. "It reflects my political ideol-
ogy."
The contest, which began last spring, had entrants ages
17 to 29 create an essay or 30-second television public ser-
vice announcement focused on one of three civil liberties
themes: racial justice, censorship or the Patriot Act.
McCandless described the essay-writing process as a
"personal catharsis" and a way for him to vent his frustra-
tion with the current state of political affairs.
"I got fed up with all the lies and empty promises,"
he said of the current Republican administration. "I was
pretty anti-war from the start."


A second-year masters student in the College of
Journalism and Communications, McCandless became
interested in the ACLU when he used its Web site for re-
search in an undergraduate Law of Mass Communication
class. He said he felt the essay competition offered him a
forum for his political ideas.
"The thing that appealed to me the most about it is
that the ACLU is a group that I respect and that stands
up for our civil liberties," he said. "It gave me a voice, so I
decided to use that."
"The poem has to do with my beliefs, my
value systems. It reflects my political ideol-
ogy."
Colin McCandless
finalist, ACLU Stand Up for Freedom contest

The PSA grand prize winner will be awarded a check
for $5,000, and the essay winner will receive a check for
$1,000.
The contest's organizers received more than 3,000 es-
say submissions and more than 200 PSA submissions,
said Monica Jara, vice president for communications at
Zilo Networks Inc. Seven finalists were chosen in each
category.
The panel of 13 judges includes public figures and in-
dustry professionals, such as filmmaker Ron Howard and
musicians Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas, Jara said.


Stay safe: It's

Condom Week
By MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer
National Condom Week, which began on the University
of California, Berkeley campus in 1978, is celebrated from
Feb.14 to Feb. 21.
Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood
On will pass out goodie bags with cookies and
CaipUS condoms Tuesday and candy and condoms
Wednesday from a table in Turlington Plaza.
"A lot of people find condoms to be an awkward thing
to talk about," said Vox President Sara Hanson, 21. "We
find that pairing [condoms] with something a little more
friendly, like cookies and candy, makes it easier for people
to approach us about them."
Three hundred goodie bags will be given out Tuesday
and Wednesday, and anywhere from 5,000 to 7,000 con-
doms will be handed out throughout the week. Goodie
bags will contain two cookies or pieces of candy, two con-
doms and a flier with safe-sex tips.
"Valentine's Day is a romantic day, and it's as good a
time as any to promote safer sex," Hanson said.

Flame on

Olympics entertain in

strange new way
T he Olympics has seduced the Editorial Board.
Last week we were mildly interested in watching
drunken downhill skiing from Bode Miller. But after
watching the disco-infused Opening Ceremony on Friday
night, we are officially obsessed.
Fire spewed three feet out of the helmets of in-line skaters.
Cow statues on wheels wove between dancers. Sign-bearing
women wore dresses with the Alps protruding from their
skirts.
"Funkytown" echoed through the arena as Iran walked in
the parade of countries.
Yes. "Funkytown."
We don't quite understand why Torino felt that disco's
-greatest hits should play during the parade of countries, but
we loved it. Nothing says Olympics more than "YMCA" and
Donna Summer. It was the first time we can remember actually
wanting to watch the parade of countries, just to see what song
Uzbekistan would be matched up with.
And it got better.
A Formula 1 race car spun in circles burning rubber. Yoko
Ono read a poem and Peter dabriel sang John Lennon's
"Imagine."
We don't know what the Torino staff was thinking when
they planned the Opening Ceremony, but we salute them. It
was a beautiful show that had fast action, hot women, hot cars,
half-dressed people flying through the air and "Boogie Fever."
The off-key start fit well with the drama of USA's celeb-
rity athletes. We binged on Twizzlers when Michelle Kwan
announced she was withdrawing from the competition. And
we've spent our entire weekend surfing Nike's Bode Miller
Web site, www.joinbode.com. Nike's Bode Training Videos are
a hysterical way to promote the games, and we have officially
labeled ourselves Bodeists.
We can't wait to see the drama that awaits in the upcoming
weeks. In the meantime, we're glued to the soothing voice of
Bob Costas. Our schoolwork will suffer, but that's OK. We're

Opinions

Cartoon reaction overblown, dangerous


Denmark pulled its diplomats from Indonesia and Iran
on Saturday, while Saudi Arabia's top cleric called on
the world's Muslims to reject apologies for the now
infamous cartoons of Islam's prophet, Muhammad.
Mercifully, the protests have become more peaceful since
embassies in Syria and Lebanon were set ablaze by mobs last
week, but the death toll of these riots is already significantly
highat 11.
I'm not a Muslim, and I'm not an Islamophobe. I'm a
Christian. And seeing Kanye West posing as Jesus on the
cover of Rolling Stone pisses me off. But fortunately for
Rolling Stone headquarters, I have no intention of tossing
around some Molotov cocktails.
A new Turkish movie called "Valley of the Wolves: Iraq"
depicts U.S. soldiers bursting into an Iraqi wedding and
pumping women and children full of lead. The soldiers then
drag the survivors to Abu Ghraib prison, where Jewish doc-
tors cut out the prisoners' organs and sell them to wealthy
Westerners. The movie stars Gary Busey and Billy Zane.
I hear it's doing quite well with Arab audiences, No
Muslims seem to be too offended when they are peddled
such laughable propaganda. So what's the problem with a
few lame cartoons?
Chances are you've never seen the cartoons. They're dif-
ficult to find in the United States even on the Internet. The
extent to which these cartoons have been censored is truly as-
tounding. NBC and CNN have been too afraid to run them.
But CNN showed the Rolling Stone cover of Kanye West.
And NBC runs sitcoms like the "Book of Daniel," where
Jesus routinely appears to a painkiller-addicted priest. Yet
the networks skirt around the cartoon issue for fear of of-
fending Muslims.
President Bush has urged leaders in Middle Eastern


Matt Melone

letters@alligator.org


nations to try to quell the violence
surrounding these cartoons, but he
only succeeded at having his effigy
bumed at more of the protests.
The President is caught between
a rock and a hard place yet again.
He's always pushed Islam as a
"religion of peace" on a skeptical
Christian, conservative voter base,


and the Islamic extremists seem de-
termined to prove him wrong.
Military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan are depen-
dent on the empowerment of moderates against the kind
of nutters who bum embassies over cartoons. And it's those
same nutters who lend credence to the bigoted notion that
Islam is incompatible with democracy
So angry Muslim mobs of the world, I have a message the
President and almost every other American wants to yell but
is too afraid to say: Get over it.
I understand the cartoon was offensive. The Koran says
there should be no publication of the prophet Muhammad.
And nobody likes to see their religion denigrated so publicly.
Such an incident will probably never happen again, and at
least Muslims got an apology. Do you think Christians are
holding out for an apology from Rolling Stone?
In order to convince the world that Islam is capable of co-
existence with the West, moderate Muslims need to reign in
the extremist elements that bum embassies and kill people
in riots. Otherwise, the clash of civilizations will continue to
grab headlines and make reconciliation seem increasingly
hopeless.

Guest column

SG parties shouldn't defen


ast Friday, Gavin Baker spoke out
defending his party's lack of a plat-
form and Web site. He suggested
that independent Student Body treasurer
candidate Susan Henriques had it easy
because she didn't have to put together a
ticket or coordinate with other candidates.
On all accounts, I must respectfully dis-
agree with Mr. Baker.
Henriques' campaign offers more to
the student body than both of the other
campaigns combined and does so with far
less resources. What she lacks in financial
resources and raw numbers she makes up
for with experience, dedication, passion
and respect for the student body, provid-
ing them with something more than the
bare minimum.
To develop her platform, Henriques
personally called every Student
Government-funded organization's trea-
surer all 277 of them. Each party has at
least 44 Senate candidates and three execu-
tive candidates. While that may take more
coordination, it also provides them with
many more resources plenty of people
who can design a Web site, put informa-
tion on it and consult with the appropriate
parties to develop a platform.
My guess is that the campaigns will


Mackenzie be chock full of re-
Moritz cycled issues from
Speaking Out years past. In fact,
the Unite Party in
particular is trying
to co-opt the online voting issue Henriques
is responsible for getting on this Spring's
ballot even though its presidential can-
didate voted against the issue last summer.
On the other hand, Henriques' ideas are
realistic and innovative addressing real
problems students have with the office she
is running for.
How were people even supposed to
slate with the parties? At the beginning of
slating, Unite had not released their execu-
tive ticket and neither party had a Web site
or anything that resembled a platform. If
it wasn't back-room brokering, what are
we to think was the reason anyone slated
with either party? They look better in red
than blue?
Henriques' Web site provides more
information on either of the parties than
their own sites. For example, you can find
everyone's financial reports and Senate
candidates on her Web site because she is
proving with her campaign what she will
do in office be responsive, open and ac-
cessible. Based on their performance so far,


d mediocrity
I expect the administration of whichever
party wins to be private, sluggish and
unoriginal.
Too much of this election has been
dedicated to fighting over the support
of Greek houses and large student orga-
nizations. This campaign wasn't started
yesterday, as Mr. Baker would suggest
with his argument that they haven't had
enough time. It is fairly well known that
both presidential candidates have been
planning their bids for months. Platforms
and new ideas for SG simply weren't
high enough on their lists of priorities to
be finalized more than 15 days before the
election.
If these parties want to manage mil-
lions of student dollars, I do not think it
is unreasonable to expect that they have
plans for how to use that money and a
Web site to make that plan accessible to
the people they are asking to vote for
them. Students deserve a better choice
than the lesser of two mediocre cam-
paigns. While students may not have that
choice for all offices, they do for their next
Student Body treasurer.
MacKenzie Moritz is former student sen-
ator and student body presidential candidate
and is Susan Henriques' campaign manager.


MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13,2006 E ALLIGATOR, 7



Letter to the Editor
Alligator's dead right on SG election
Unite Party senatorial candidate Gavin
Baker, who in his Alligator column last
year mainly suggested that SG candi-
dates take their clothes off, now says the
Alligator isn't being serious enough about
its duty to cover the election. Well, I'll
venture a guess that the Alligator can't
do much to "raise the level of dialogue
in SGelections" if the parties can't even
commit to a slate of ideas 18 days before
voting begins. Congressional candidates
do, very often, have a working platform
and a media campaign already under way
months or even years before Election Day.
And it's ludicrous to suggest that either
SG party was waiting for campaigning to
start to formulate their platforms. If either
party can't put a few dozen ideas on paper
at this point, then they shouldn't be in the
race. The Alligator has done a laudable job
in declaring that both parties have done
would-be voters wrong.

aaK UF surges past LSU after half


Kristin Nichols / Alligator Staff
Al Horford dunks while LSU forward Glen Davis and UF forward Joa-
kim Noah look on during the second half of UF's 71-62 victory.


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Throughout the first half of UF's
meeting with Louisiana State, it
seemed the Gators' bugaboo from
their loss to South Carolina was
haunting them.
Led by 310-pound Glen "Big
Baby" Davis, the Tigers out-
rebounded UF 26-17 during the
game's first 20 minutes and had
scored 12 second-chance points off
of 10 offensive rebounds.
In the second half, however,
forward Al Horford and the No.
7 Gators. (21-3, 7-3 Southeastern
Conference) turned it around, ul-
timately evening the rebounding
numbers and breaking out with a
20-5 run to coast to an imperative
71-62 league win.
The victory snapped a three-
game losing streak against LSU
(16-7, 8-2 SEC).
"For our league, Glen Davis is
like, for the NBA, trying to block
out Shaquille O'Neal," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "It's very, very
similar. He just has got great ability
on the weak side ... he makes it
about power."
For all the domination Davis
displayed, finishing with 16 points
and 15 rebounds, Donovan was
hoping that he and the rest of the
Tigers would wear down as a result


of their short, seven-man rotation,
one in which five players played at
least 24 minutes.
"I thought maybe they were
starting to get a little worn down,"
Donovan said. "That's what I was
hopeful for. Maybe their shots
wouldn't go, maybe they wouldn't
rebound the ball as well."
"Like coach just said,
we've got to come with
that kind of anger and that
kind of hunger every game.
We work too hard to lose
to teams that we're better
than."
Joakim Noah
UF forward

Although Horford pulled down
just four boards while scoring 16
points, he was able to minimize
Big Baby's rebounding by pushing
Davis away and taking himself out
of the play in the process, allowing
his teammates to contend for the
rebounds.
And while the game was billed
as a matchup of frontcourts, UF's
ability to neutralize Darrel Mitchell
may have been the Gators' key to
victory.
"I think a lot of people felt like
whoever played better, [UF point
guard] Taurean Green or Mitchell,


that was the team that was going to
win," Donovan said. "I don't know
if either one of them could have
guarded the other any better than
they did. They both were non-fac-
tors in the game."
Just a week removed from scor-
ing 29 points against Kentucky,
Green was just 1 of 9 from the field,
but his 3 points came at a critical
time for UF.
Green buried a 3-pointer in front
of UF's bench with 8 minutes, 8 sec-
onds remaining to give the Gators
a 56-54 lead that they would never
-relinquish.
That shot came in the midst of
a run that began with the Gators
down 6, catalyzed by a pair of
Walter Hodge layups.
Joakim Noah followed up with
a pair of baskets en route to 16
points and nine rebounds.
Green and Lee Humphrey (13
points) sank 3-pointers on consecu-
tive possessions, and the rally was
punctuated by a dunk from Noah
that gave the Gators a 9-point lead
with a little more than 5 minutes
remaining.
"Like coach just said, we've got
to come with that kind of anger and
that kind of hunger every game,"
Noah said. "We work too hard to
lose to teams that we're better than.
"This is a great win for us just
for our confidence and to let people
know that we're still one of tle top
teams."


Jeroloman, Dickey power Gators in sweep of Cincy


* BATS POWERED UF TO 40 RUNS IN
THE TEAM'S THREE-GAME OPENING
WEEKEND.

By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

There is such a thing as being effectively
wild, but Cincinnati pitcher Glen Simon never
figured it out.
On a chilly Gainesville afternoon, the
Gators defeated Cincinnati 20-4 to complete a
three-game sweep of the Bearcats on Sunday.
Simon walked five and hit a batter en route
to a first-inning exit on Sunday. The Gators
scored five runs on just two hits in Simon's
two-thirds of an inning.
Unfortunately for Cincinnati, Simon's de-
parture didn't end the onslaught.
The Gators added three more runs in
the second when left-handed reliever Dan
Osterbrock struck first baseman Matt LaPorta

with a pitch and gave up an RBI double to
Brian Lederc two batters later.
After a popup by designated hitter Bryson
Barber, outfielder Gavin Dickey launched a
two-run homer that squeezed inside the left
field foul pole.
LaPorta and shortstop Adam Davis walked
in the third inning, setting up Jeroloman's
three-run shot to right field, increasing the
lead to 11-0 after three innings. Typically more
of a singles hitter, Jeroloman now has hit two
home runs in his past two games.
"I was joking around with LaPorta, telling
him I have more home runs than he does,"
Jeroloman said. LaPorta led the nation in
home runs last season.
After adding another run in the fourth, the
Gators plated three more in the fifth, includ-
ing Dickey's second two-run homer of the
afternoon. Dickey's two home runs and four
RBI were career highs, and his three hits tied
a career high.
Dickey said he doesn't remember hitting
two home runs in a single game since tee ball.

"The whole series, they were throwing me
a lot of breaking balls, and today Ijust got two
that I could drive, and I put good swings on
it," Dickey said. "Working with the coaches
every day, trying to improve on something
small every day, has started to pay off."
The Gators did not fail to take advantage of
theopportunitiesCincinnati
afforded them, scoring 20
runs on just 14 hits.
Despite manhandling
Cincinnati on the score-

the Gators for most of the
game. It took a barrage of
Dickey hits in the eighth inning for
UF to surpass the Bearcats'
total of 11.
"The thing I like is that the runs are more
than the hits," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"Production of runs to me is important. The
first two games, we left some significant num-
bers of guys on base, and to be productive or
a good offensive dub, you have got to be able

to score runs."
UF starting pitcher J.K. LaCoste was cred-
ited with the victory, allowing no runs on two
hits, while striking out two in three innings.
The Gators took advantage of the blowout to
give their bullpen some work, using a total of
seven pitchers in the game.
The Gators took the first two games in the
series by scores of 10-0 and 10-4.
UF ace Bryan Ball threw five scoreless
innings to pick up the win in game one on
Friday, while sophomore Bryan Augenstein
was four outs away from a perfect game be-
fore finally surrendering an eighth-inning hit
on Saturday.
McMahon was impressed with the way his
team started the season, especially the way the
Gators improved as the series progressed.
"I thought we competed very well," he
said. "I thought we showed great composure.
... It was a good start for our ball dub, but
there are so many ways we need to improve
and our guys understand and know that, I
think."

UF outboxed by South Carolina


* THE GAMECOCKS PULLED AWAY IN THE SEC-
OND HALF WITH A 32-11 GAME-ENDING RUN.


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org


South Carolina brought 17 fans, a team with nobody
averaging double digits in scoring and a Casa Solana card-
board box to Sunday's game against UF.
SThe empty white box formerly used to store Mexican
food products may have proven the difference.
UF faded away in the final 10 minutes of the second half
against the Gamecocks, falling 81-63 in its second-to-last
home game of the season.
South Carolina won the rebounding battle 43-33 after
bringing the box into practice to symbolize boxing out and
grabbing boards.
"[Assistant] coach [Tammy] Holder brought the box to
practice yesterday," South Carolina coach Susan Walvius
said. "The box flew with us from Columbia. It was in the
locker room before the game."
The box joined in the South Carolina pregame huddle,
being held up at the top by a Gamecocks player.
During the game, it sat next to Walvius and her assistants
at the South Carolina bench, looking on as South Carolina

There was no lightning-quick jump
from the gate for the UF softball team.
But the Gatorsdidn't stall either.
After three losses by a combined 12
runs, first-year Coach Tim Walton's era
had not gotten off to its desired start.
However, No. 19 UF responded to
win the last two games of the Houston
Tournament and left with a 2-3 record.
UF defeated Texas A&M-Corpus
Chrisl 6-1 on Sunday.
Outfielder Lindsey Cameron broke
the UF career home-run record in
the game. On Saturday, UF defeated
Houston 6-2 and fell 7-2 to Oregon.
The Gators lost 6-0 to Kansas and


forwards Melanie Johnson and Demetress Adams com-
bined for 19 rebounds.
The sight of it didn't help UF (18-6, 6-5 Southeastern
Conference), which didn't have a player record more than
six rebounds.
"We didn't box out; just plain and simple," said senior
forward Brittany Davis, who led the Gators with 12 points
and six rebounds. "They outrebounded us, and that's some-
thing that we definitely need to work on and can't let it con-
tinue. ... We just did a horrendous job of
keeping them off the boards."
In a game that featured 10 lead
changes and seven ties, the Gators led
52-49 with 9 minutes, 11 seconds re-
maining. -
Then, South Carolina picked up 13 re-
bounds to UF's seven to end the game on
Davis a 32-11 run. The Gamecocks shot 64 per-
cent from the field in the second half.
"We continue to learn that lesson," UF coach Carolyn
Peck said. "In order to win in the SEC, you've got to control
the boards."
At least somebody at the O'Connell Center on Sunday
gave UF credit.
"We've got a lot of respect for this Florida team," Walvius
said. "They are very good. They're NCAA [Tournament]
bound."


"It's really exciting. I guess
you could say a little pres-
sure has been taken off.
Our team is so supportive
of each other. If it wasn't for
them, it wouldn't have hap-
pened. Everyone was crazy."
Lindsey Cameron
UF outfielder

fell 5-4 to Oregon on Friday.
"We were just OK; that's probably
a fair assessment," Walton said. "We
didn't do anything especially well; we
didn't do anything poor."
While the Gators may not have


done as well as they hoped, they did
prove one thing.
They have a flair for the dramatic.
Cameron not only broke the UF career
home-run record but did it with style.
In the fourth inning, after freshmen
Kim Waleszonia and Brooke Johnson
got base hits and senior Stacie Pestrak
was hit by a pitch, Cameron came up.
She walloped a pitch down the
left-center field fence for a grand slam,
breaking the school record with 29 ca-
reer home runs.
"It's really exciting. I guess you
could say a little pressure has been
taken off," Cameron said. "Our team is
so supportive of each other. If it wasn't
for them, it wouldn't have happened.
Everyone was crazy."
