Officials monitor student workers online


By SHARILYN WISKUP
Alligator Contributing Writer

A photo of one UF freshman wearing an
inebriated smirk and blood-shot eyes no lon-
ger exists on his Facebook.com profile.
Logan Smith, a staff member of the Inter-
Residence Hall Association, said he and other
IRHA staffers were warned in January that
incriminating information on their Facebook
profiles could cost them their leadership posi-
tions.
That same day, he deleted more than 60
photos, five groups and five quotes.


"I didn't think as I put it on the Intemet,
but once it was said, I realized that anything
you put on the Intemet is subject for anyone
to see," he said.
Smith's experience is becoming more
common as university officials poke around
Facebook to check up on current and prospec-
tive student leaders, making sure that students
aren't forsaking the opportunity to represent
UF and employers by posting inappropriate
information. University officials have also
questioned whether publicly posted illegal
activity, such as underage drinking, should be
prosecuted through Student Judicial Affairs as

a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
"We want to make sure that the people we
put in these positions are leading with integ-


rity," said Shane Wibeto, assistant director for
New Student Programs. "These students will
be a role model and will make a large impact
on new students."
Wibeto and seven other Student Affairs
administrators listened to a nationwide audio
conference last semester that discussed safety
issues involved with online communities.
The Facebook, an online network for col-
lege students, was the hot topic for the hour-
long conference, Wibeto said. It aimed to make
educators aware of this college craze and to

DEPRESSION SEES



GRIPES, GROWTH

Editor's note: This is the third in a series of stories commemorat-
ing the Independent Florida Alligator's 100th year of publica-
tion. The following covers UF events from 1930 to 1939. A new
decade will be featured every Wednesday.
By OLIVIA ORMOS and NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Staff Writers

Like the rest of the Depression-stricken nation, UF was hit hard in the
economic collapse of the 1930s.
"It was a tough time for everybody," said Hal Henderly, 88, UF gradu-
ate of 1937. "I worked hard for my meals working two jobs one being
at the library. It's a different thing because students today have much
more available."
In response to tough times, the Florida Alligator, then owned by the
university, published an annual "Gripe and Grievance Edition," in which
students were invited to submit complaints about campus problems.
Many of the things printed were potentially libelous something the
university noted.
Larry R. Trusler, the chairman
.\n I- ,dp.ai- a ~ of the Commission on Student
g u|n ~aitor Publications at the time, sent a letter
to the editor of the Alligator, warning
A Century of Coverage that the paper could be fined for any
complaints it printed.
Charles E. Bennett, Alligator editor, responded with a letter on the
frontpage of the Feb. 14,1932, edition, which read "To cease publication
of the Gripe and Grievance edition would be to stifle student opinion."
One week later, one "gripe" proclaimed "campus big shots" were the
"true sons of Lucifer."
In a more direct response to the university's troubles, a group of stu-
dents formed the Collegiate Living Organization in 1932 to counteract the
cost of living brought on by the Depression. One year later, its 30 mem-
bers lived in a newly built house.
The Alligator profiled the successes of the organization in its Feb.
15, 1936, edition, in a story titled "CLO Co-Operative Beats Depression,
Lowers Living Costs For 30 Members." The story said CLO residents paid
$15 a month for living expenses, compared with the $35 to $40 that the

INFIRMARY IS

LIKE MORGUE

Tries To Shatter Enrollment
Records, Nurses are
"Sassy".

I have long suspected that our
infirmary has been attempting to
shatter some enrollment record, or
at least be able to point to a favor-
able number of reclining (mostly
dead) between their 700 hot water
bottles and dirty linens.
I have come to believe that the
repugnant nurses at that veritable
morgue (once you get in it) are
tired of setting ice water beside
empty beds (thus losing their
tips) and have inveigled students
into the infirmary which we
shall call "morgue" in obeyance to
"whylyle": the God of Truth so
that they can receive a rake off on
the coffins, which any victim who
entered would eventually need.


HELL WEEK IS

HARD ORDEAL

Fraternity Men All Belong
in Insane
Asylums.

Various distasteful futures
have been predicted for me by
neighbors whose windows have
been shattered by my baseballs,
by lifeguards who have caught me
with a strap down, and by upper-
classmen who condemn freshmen
to the gallows ant first sight, but I
never thought I'd sit in an electric
chair and live to get paddler after-
wards!
Imagine the mortification of my
parents upon hearing of my nomi-
nation to sizzle in an electric chair!
What would mother think?
She probably would condemn the
use of electricity and send me an
apple pie to eat in my moment of
anguish.
What would my father think?
He would probably campaign
against the inadequate system of
college initiations and have me
sent to Sing Song to be sacrificed in
a more realistic manner and save
himself a $100 fraternity fee.
What I object to is the insistent
demands of my fraternity broth-
ers to develop me in an ability for
mathematics which is entirely lack-
ing in my make-up. I have counted
the telephone poles from Fairbanks
to a certain hick college town with
the seeming disgust of a 2.9 man,


but the only result I obtained was
a -mania to move far from wood
yards, wooden poles, professors
and other wooden objects.


Conduct At Games

Is Ungentlemanly

Manner In Which Women
Are Greeted Is Disgrace-
ful To The University.

Would you care to have your
mother, sister or "girl" attend
a basketball game or entertain-
ment in the gymnasium at the
University of Florida and be
subjected to treatment accorded
feminine visitors at affairs of the
like here in the university?
The entrance of any lady to any
entertainment in this university is
the signal for a chorus of "boos"
and cat-calls from every hand. No
lady or gentleman cares to be made
conspicuous in this fashion upon
any occasion, and if necessary he
or she will stay away from enter-
tainments on the campus in order
to escape the embarrassment.
If only freshmen engaged in
these grammar school diversions
the situation would not be nearly
so bad, but the only way the fresh-
men can learn that this sort of thing
is expected of them as Florida men
is by example of sophomore and
even juniors.


Law Building Has

Poor Sanitation

Inadequate Toilet Facilities
Are Disgraceful to Campus
Building.

Any day one walks into the Law
building all he hears is gripe, gripe,
gripe. The professors gripe because
the students are continually late
to classes and the students gripe
because they can't help it. Why all
this griping? For the simple reason
that for a school of over two hun-
dred students the law college has
one small toilet equipped with only
two old-fashioned commodes both
of which are uncomfortable and
unsanitary.
In a modem school one would
expect to find a reasonable number
of modem conveniences but evi-
dently our university authorities are
answering Will Durant's question:
"Is Progress Real?" in the negative
and would be content to continue
with the old fashioned back-house
if such were not prohibited by law;
or maybe they intend to retain these
conditions, forcing us neglect of our
bodies, in order to keep our new in-
firmary well supplied with patients.

average student paid at the time.
"The 1930s have to be seen in the
context of the Great Depression,"
said Carl Van Ness, university archi-
vist. "Unlike the 1920s, there wasn't
a lot of state money for construction,
and the construction undertaken
was often done with federal assis-
tance."
Despite economic hardships, the
university continued its steadfast
growth during the decade.
Under the administration of
John J. Tigert in 1935, UF created the
General College curriculum, reorga-
nizing the university's undergradu-
ate program.
"The university has really
grown," Henderly said. "We only
had 3,000 students, and only 25
were women taking courses here.
The rest were at Florida State for
women."
UF was not yet a coed institu-
tion, but women commuted to
Gainesville for specific classes
that were unavailable at the
Florida State College for Women.
The admission requirements
of the university intensified when
all applicants were required to
pass a comprehensive placement
test before being admitted as a full-
time student.
Those admitted had the luxury of
four phones installed in the dormi-
tories in 1939.
The Jan. 21, 1939, edition of the
Alligator said the new phones could
be used for both incoming and out-
going calls, though it was difficult to
use them during "rush hour," from 5
p.m. to 10 p.m.

Indie band brings


Union a 'spectacle'


* OF MONTREAL WILL GIVE A
FREE PERFORMANCE TODAY.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer.
jrichards@alligator.org

The recently exploded indie-
pop band Of Montreal promises
a "spectacle" at its free show
tonight at the Reitz Union.
"There's costumes and danc-
ing. We're not the kind of band
that stands still and plays the
instruments. It is a spectacle,"
he said. "You can expect a per-
formance, not just a recital."
The show starts at 9 p.m.,
but Of Montreal has sold out
every show on this tour, so
Reitz Union Board officials
suggest that students get to
the Rion Ballroom when doors
open at 7:30.
Jamie Huggins, who plays
bass, drums, trumpet and key-
board for the band, said the
audience should dance without
inhibition.
"When we put on the show,
it is supposed to be like New
Year's Eve," he said. "It is sup-
posed to be a dance party."
Unfortunately, the band's
newfound under-21 audiences
are often self-conscious, he
said.
Of Montreal's music has
recently spread to a wider and
sometimes younger group of
listeners. Since the 2005 release
of "Sunlandic Twins," Huggins
said tour audiences have
tripled.


He also attributes the band's
expansion to what he calls "ac-
cidental television appearanc-
es." Of Montreal songs recently
have been played on "The OC"
and "Six Feet Under."
The band has released 12
albums since 1996.
Its music has progressed
from '60s-style tunes to psyche-
delic storytelling to hi-fi dance-
able pop.
"I could make a mix CD
of Of Montreal from 1996 to
2006 with 10 songs on it, and
if I chose carefully, I bet that I
could fool a blind
Off the judge panel (into
,-_;.---: thinking) that it
was 10 different
bands," Huggins said.
He named Brian Eno, David
Bowie and Os Mutantes as the
band's major influences.
The Reitz Union show is the
first of its kind in the band's
history: Both opening bands
Jamie Husband and The Late
B.P. Helium are side projects
of Of Montreal members.
Huggins said his perfor-
mance as Jamie Husband will
be stripped-down and some-
what acoustic.
Guitarist Brian Poole will
play guitar-driven hard rock
as the frontman of The Late B.P.
Helium, which includes mem-
bers of the bands Olivia Tremor
Control and Elf Power.
Huggins said there will be at
least one surprise in tonight's
performance.

Lit by the glow of his laptop, Logan Smith, a journalism major and secretary of the Inter-Residence Hall As-
sociation Murphree Area Council, browses Facebook.com in his dorm room Tuesday.


Students warned to clean up Web pages


FACEBOOK, from page 1


caution students about posting private information.
During last semester's interviews for Preview staff-
ers, Wibeto asked applicants to print and bring in their
Facebook profiles. Students were not selected or rejected
based solely on their Facebook profiles. Rather, the goal
was for students to realize what they post online is a
public forum where anyone can see it, he said.
"Because you're behind a computer, it feels like
you're anonymous," he said.
While Wibeto and others in the Dean of Students
Office do not actively seek out underage nonsense when
selecting staffers, they do find Facebook to be an inter-
esting medium that students use to portray themselves.
Students who invest time making a Facebook profile
should know ways to keep more personal information


private. Last semester, Wibeto led a privacy demonstra-
tion to a First-Year Florida class to inform students that
the option is available to disclose less information.
For example, Facebook users can choose among four
different privacy settings and even more specific options
from "normal," or public, to "paranoid." Those who al-
low their profiles to be seen may be prevented from
leadership roles on campus,internships and jobs.
Sharon Blansett, spokeswoman for the Department
of Housing, said that some students don't understand
what is and isn't appropriate, even those applying to be
resident assistants.
"We want to make sure that your online persona
matches who you are in person," she said.
As for Smith, he said he has learned to be more cau-
tious from the experience with UF staff.
S"I keep my Facebook profile censored now because I
don't want it to prevent me from getting jobs," he said.

Student paper debuts with Jewish news and jokes


By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

UF students behind The Shpiel's
creation were verklempt Tuesday
afternoon.
After months of preparation,
UF's new Jewish student paper
made its debut on Turlington Plaza.
The 4,000 inaugural papers were
handed out in maroon cups printed
with the white Shpiel logo.
Getting students' attention
proved to be a difficult task the
staff was competing for attention
against a man singing about pirates
and a student in a gorilla costume


riding a bike through Turlington
Plaza.
"Comments ranged from 'This is
really great' to 'This will be perfect
reading material while we're watch-
ing a movie in class,'" said Rabbi
Yonah Schiller, executive director of
The Shpiel.
Kimberly Gouz, news editor
and production manager, said The
Shpiel, published twice a month,
was started to create a greater Jewish
community within Gainesville.
She noticed that many people
lack a strong connection with Hillel,
despite the fact that Gainesville has
the largest student Jewish popula-
tion outside of Israel.


"We're really just creating a com-
munity for this disenfranchised
Jewish person, whoever he or she
may be," Gouz said.
The concept for the paper; which
is the only paper of its kind in pub-
lication, came from Schiller, who
brought the idea to
Student Gouz in December.
-:.'_._ "[The idea] didn't
really come from any
particular place," Schiller said. "It
was based on just-looking around
and seeing an incredible amount of
Jews and most of them finding small
pockets of the Jewish community." .
After creating a business propos-
al, they received money from ads as


well as from donations from private
individuals and synagogues.
"It's just a couple of kids and a
rabbi," Gouz said. "It's pretty amaz-
ing that we were actually able to
come out with a newspaper in two
months. I still can't believe it."
In addition to Jewish and Israeli
news, the paper satirizes Jewish
culture, mocking kabalism and ge-
filte fish.
Though the content is based
around the Jewish culture, Schiller
said that the paper is for everyone.
"It's not exclusively a Jewish
voice. The paper is Jew-ish," Schiller
said. "It has Jewish content, but the
division and goal of Judaism in gen-


eral is to find its place in the market-
place in humanity."
Gouz said that the long hours of
editing she put in were worth it.
"Honestly, when I first started
with the project, I was interested
in it, but it was kind of on the back
burner," she said. "Now, it's been
something that I've worked so hard
on."
A Web site, www.theshpiel.org,
for the paper simultaneously
launched with the first issue.
Schiller said, "It's going to be-
come much more dynamic in na-
ture, such that people will be able to
create profiles, and there will be an
online Jewish community."


Swamp announces platform


* FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY AND INCREASED
ACCOUNTABILITY ARE TWO OF THE GOALS.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
lewis@alligator.org

After two weeks of promoting its core ide-
als, the Swamp Party became the final Student
Government organization to release a full plat-
form Tuesday afternoon.
John Boyles, who tops Swamp's ticket as its
Student Body presidential candidate, announced
the new platform on Turlington Plaza.
Party candidates were on hand to distribute
fliers listing Swamp's goals, which highlight the
party's three main planks: fiscal responsibility,
increased accountability within SG and expanded
student representation in both the community
and the UF administration.
The winners of Spring's SG election, which


will take place Feb. 28 and March 1, will control
nearly $12 million in student money.
"Too often, the administration runs our school
like it's a business," Boyles told supporters.
-Swamp's plans to advocate student rights
include increasing the capacity of UF's WebMail
serve and initiating more recycling programs.
In an interview after the rally, Boyles said he
was especially passionate about Swamp's goal to
increase diversity within SG, listing himself as an
example of a senator who defies SG stereotypes.
"I am not a part of that demographic, and I am
running for Student Body president," Boyles said.
"This is me saying, 'Anybody can do this.'"
Boyles also said his party intends to attract
more female and minority faculty members to UF,
a goal highlighted by Swamp vice presidential
candidate Lydia Washington.
"Being a student here, it's kind of intimidating
walking into a professor's class who, I guess from
my perspective, has no connection to me," she
said in an interview.


Group gave candy, thanks


PLANT, from page 1


10 years, was ecstatic when she
received her candy gift at the
African American Studies depart-
ment during her 10 a.m. break.
"Just to think someone at your
own job, at your place of work can
do this it just completes my
day," Johnson said.
Vice President Dorestin coor-
dinated the event with the help
of Pam Walker, the administrative
assistant to the director for the
Physical Plant division.
And with more than 900 em-
ployees, "it was quite a task,"


Walker said.
"We were pleased that this
organization stepped forward to
thank the employees for the things
they do at UF," she said.
The council vice president
personally thanked the Turlington
staff by telling them the campus
could not function without them
and giving each of them a hug.
Vice President Velouse Dorestin
said the council plans to make and
distribute bags to UF Physical
Plant workers every Valentine's
Day.
"They're excited, and that's all
that matters," she said. "That's all
that matters on Valentine's Day."

Editorial


Boondoggled

Bookstore sued in

dubious affair
Operating a college bookstore is getting tougher.
A week ago, Custom Copies, better known as
Orange & Blue Textbooks, was sued.
Unfortunately, the lawsuit wasn't filed under Florida's
anti-gouging laws. The bookstore was instead sued by six
major publishers that accuse the textbook company of sell-
ing their copyright material without permission.
We think the lawsuit sounds more than a little shady.
The publishers say that since Spring 2003, OBT has com-
mitted 20 copyright violations when it copied excerpts from
books and journals into its course packs.
But while the publishers' accusations aren't in question,
their methods and motives are.
If the publishers were really concerned about money,
they would've just sent OBT owner Kenneth Roberts a bill
for the infractions.
Only they didn't.
The publishers' attorney, William Strong, explained. Sort
of.
"We felt that it was important to send a message," he
said. When prodded, he clarified: "I don't want to define
what I mean by that."
So the publishers are suing because they want to send an
as-yet-undefined message to Roberts.
That makes sense.
Unsurprisingly, Roberts had a different take on the situ-.
ation.
"We've known for years that we're under a microscope,"
he said. "With that knowledge, there is no way in hell that
we would ever deliberately violate a copyright."
Roberts indicated that he'd paid $175,000 in royalties in
the past five years.
"If I paid $175,000," he noted, "why in the hell would I
want to chintz on a couple hundred dollars?"
Roberts also said the violations make up only 1 percent
of his copyright instances. That sounds like a pretty good
record. And it also indicates that OBT doesn't have any rea-
son to get shifty with so few copyrights.
So we're willing to take him at his word when he says
the mistakes were all honest ones.
Jeffrey Harrison, a UF copyright law professor, suggest-
ed that the lawsuit might really just be a scare tactic against
other course pack sellers. Publishers lose money when they
don't receive royalties for course pack material. Maybe they
want to make an example of OBT.
That makes sense, except that Roberts insists that it's
unfeasible to get the error rate below 1 percent. If that's the
cage, we don't expect the publishers to have much success
sending their message.
But we're still wondering who tipped the publishers off.
Once again, Roberts had some ideas. He maintains that a
competing bookstore buys all of his course packs each year
and sends them off to the publishers, which mercilessly
scrutinize the packs for violations.
We can tolerate the lawsuits. They probably won't work,
but if publishers really think lawsuits are the best way to
settle copyright infringements, then that's their preroga-
tive.
But we draw the line at local bookstores snitching on
OBT just to drive the business out. If the rivals succeed, stu-
dents will pay higher prices due to decreased competition
among bookstores.
Yet while it is unfortunate to see OBT being taken over
a barrel, at least now the bookstore will know what it feels
like to be ripped off on course materials.
We'll just call it karma.

Russia tempts fate
here is a well-known fable, retold many times, about
a scorpion and a frog. The frog and the scorpion find
themselves on one side of a formidable river. The
scorpion turns to the frog and asks him for a ride to the
other bank.
"I can't do that," the frog responds. "I can't trust you.
You're a scorpion."
But shortly, the scorpion convinces the frog of his good
intentions, and the frog starts to swim across the river
with the scorpion on his back. Halfway across the river,
the scorpion stings the frog.
"Why would you do that?" the frog asks. "Now we're
both going to die."
"You fool," the scorpion says sadly. "I can't help my-
self. I'm a scorpion."-
It's a useful story. It seems so easy.to apply it to the real
world and then come off looking like some kind of folksy
intellectual. Things get tricky when it becomes impossible
to discern who's the frog and who's the scorpion.
So how do we label the parties when Russian President
Vladimir Putin invites the leadership of Hamas to
Moscow? How do we react to his claims that the purpose
of the meeting is to demand the group renounce violence
and recognize Israel?
Is Russia the naive victim, foolishly expecting the
scorpion to abandon its violent nature? Will Putin be
lulled by vague generalities and non-guarantees into
believing Hamas will renounce its extensive history of
terror?
Or is Russia the scorpion and the rest of the world
the frog? On Friday, the French Foreign Ministry came
out in support of Russia's invitation, saying it could
"help advance the peace process." The French claim to
maintain their stance that Hamas must renounce terror


with Hamas invite
and recognize Israel, and they
view the Russian invitation as an
i. attempt to achieve those ends.
'" S We'll see. Cynicism can be
unseemly, but it's often the best
approach. And Europe's past
Andrew Bare treatment of those who murder
The Bare Truth Israelis doesn't inspire confidence.
letters@alligator.org The European Union has been the
Palestinian Authority's largest
source of funds, giving billions
of dollars despite the Authority's obvious complicity in
dozens of terror attacks.
It was assumed that the EU would find its backbone
with the election of an unapologetically terroristic orga-
nization. But while the European community reacted to
Hamas' election with the proper words, it refused to take
the crucial action of cutting off its funding.
And so Israel looks on, fuming with rage, as the world
insists once again that those who seek to kill Jews must be
negotiated with, talked to, and in fact, funded.
In that regard, it is perhaps fitting that the spark for this
latest appeasement attempt comes from Russia. From the
pogroms to "Protocols of the Elders of Zion," Russia has
been a ready source of anti-Semitism. And while Putin's
diplomatic maneuvering certainly has more to do with
influence peddling than ethnic hatred, his government's
level of concern over the killing of Jews is certainly up for
debate.
But whoever plays the frog and whoever plays the
scorpion, the end result of trusting a killer is always the
same.

Guest coL.:ii


Muslims seek journalistic respect,


Much has been made in the past few
weeks of the recent controversy re-
garding the derogatory depictions of
the Prophet Muhammad. Perhaps lost among
the videos of fierce rioting in the Muslim
world and the numerous editorials and blogs
published by the staunch proponents of free
speech is the true reason why these carica-
tures are considered so offensive to Muslims
worldwide.
Muslims revere the prophet to such a de-
gree that their love for him supersedes that
of all other creation including even their own
families, and every Muslim strives to his or
her utmost capacity to emulate the prophet's
noble characteristics.
In Islam, any attempt to depict the prophet,'
or any of the messengers of God, for that
matter, is categorically forbidden. If portray-
als created with love or an attempt to show
reverence are so strongly condemned, then to
Muslims, satirical depictions are indeed tanta-
mount to blasphemy.

L tesG to the Editor


Bearing all this in mind, Islam on Campus
feels the main subject here is not an issue of
free speech, but one of ethical journalism.
None would argue that freedom of speech
and the press should not be inherent rights
of man in any society and that government
intervention through censorship would only
inhibit the advancement and ability of society
to progress as a whole. However, committing
an act simply because one possesses the ability
to do so is not a sign of strength, but rather one
of haughtiness.-
The editors of the Danish newspaper
and those of the other newspapers who re-
published these drawings would have been
extremely naive not to realize how offensive
they would be to Muslims around the world.
Moreover, these depictions were not the nor-
mal satirical cartoons published in newspa-
pers every day, but rather the response to a
dare that no paper would have the audacity
to publish cartoons of Allah or the Prophet
Muhanimed, especially in such a sardonic

Coretta Scott King funeral speeches highly disrespectful
As a dyed-in-the-wool independent voter, I am saddened
to add my voice to the many who are congratulating the


Democratic Party for handing the Republicans yet another
chance to improve their showing in upcoming midterm
elections.
Like many others, I believe that the vitality of the two-
party system is an aegis against the tyranny of the majority,
but honestly, are Democrats so vacuous that they do not
recall the relevance of values in an election held not two
years ago?
I certainly do.
I seem to remember a certain display of irreverence at a
memorial service held in honor of a beloved senator from
Minnesota. Yes, that was the year that celebrating the life
of a patriot gave way to shameless political grandstanding,
disrespectful behavior toward guests and vitriolic partisan
speech. That behavior was televised nationally, seized upon.


by the great senator's political opponents and resoundingly
rejected by voters.
Fast-forward to last week's funeral service for Coretta
Scott King, and we find that the perpetual minority party
has learned absolutely nothing!
Former President Jimmy Carter and the Rev. Joseph
Lowery can be thanked for showing that their devotion to a
political party is greater than their respect for King, her fam-
ily and American norms of public decorum.
There is a time and a place for partisan rhetoric. To offer it
at a funeral is no reflection of the values Americans embrace.
This is a repeated oversight that will cost the Democrats
plenty and it should.

Augenstein matures into sophomore pitching ace for Gators


nd the award for most improved
baseball player goes to ...
Well, it might be a little bit early
make an assessment like that. However,
sophomore pitcher Brian Augenstein has
ie inside track.
His 2005 campaign left plenty of room
Dr improvement. Augenstein looked like a
tud during fall and winter practices, toss-
g the quickest fastball on the team, but he
nded up being left off of the postseason
oster after he struggled to acclimate to col-
ege baseball.
What went wrong last year?
Augenstein kept to himself. He appeared
tubborn while throwing in the bullpen as
coaches tried to get him to throw a curve-
all. He looked cocky, shaking off pitches
calledd by catcher Brian Jeroloman.
He looked like a guy with an attitude
problem. Picture a quiet "Nuke" LaLoosh
rom "Bull Durham."
He will admit that his 92-mph heater is
what enabled him to set a record with 123
;ingle-season strikeouts at Sebastian River
ligh en route to being named the Sharks'
nost valuable player in 2004.
But velocity in the mid-90s on the radar


gun doesn't ensure college success unless
the pitcher can fool batters by changing
speeds and throwing to different parts of
the strike zone.
Augenstein said Tuesday that off-field
issues did not distract him last season and
that his body language inadvertently gave
people the wrong impression of him.
But his family was forced to move in
with his grandmother after their home in
Sebastian was hit by two hurricanes while
Augenstein was just arriving on campus.
Also, his grandmother passed away
last spring, delivering a tough blow to the
close-knit family.
Sebastian has yet to fully rebuild after
the hurricanes. Blue tarps adorn many
roofs as anxious homeowners await insur-
ance payments..
By the time the 2005 postseason began,
Augenstein saw his playing time evapo-
rate. He was disappointed after learning
he was left off of the travel roster for the
Southeastern Conference Tournament in
favor of a bullpen catcher.
Augenstein sat next to his father, a
former golfer and basketball player at
Ohio State, during the regional and super


Iregional games in
Gainesville.
When talking
about watching the
L College World Series
Tim Casey on TV, Augenstein
Casey at the Bat referred to the Gators
tcasey@alligator.org as "they."
But instead of giv-
ing up, letting a bad
attitude grow or dismissing anything the
coaches were telling him, Augenstein de-
cided to prove he belonged on the mound.
He abandoned the two-seam fastball
from last year in favor of a slower four-
seam pitch that moves diagonally through
the strike zone.
His curveball was weak and inviting to
Opposing batters last year. Not anymore.
Augenstein's curveball now looks like
it is rolling along a gutter, then it suddenly
drops into a downspout as it crosses the
plate.
Jeroloman likened Augenstein to a bull-
dog (meaning he was tenacious and fear-
less and not a reference to the Athens, Ga.,
variety) after Saturday's 10-4 win against
Cincinnati. Jeroloman compared the soph-


more's pitch movement to that of former
UF pitcher Justin Hoyman.
That bulldog mentality brought
Augenstein within four outs of the first
perfect game in UF history. Only twopitch-
ers in school history have thrown a solo
nine-inning no-hitter.
On Saturday, Augenstein became only
the seventh UF pitcher to enter the eighth
inning without allowing a hit.
What was most telling of his improve-
ment was the pitch he threw to record the
23rd out of the game.
After falling behind 3-1 in the count
with one out in the eighth, Augenstein
improved to a full count and stepped off
the mound.
He looked at the scoreboard, showing
more donuts than Phillip Fulmer's cup-
board, and then he struck out the hitter
looking, throwing an inside off-speed
pitch. Last year in that situation, he might
have tried to blow a 100-mph fastball past
the batter.
Buying into the philosophy of UF coach
Pat McMahon and pitching coach Ross
Jones, Augenstein has taken a huge step in
the maturation process.

UF preps for strange scenery .


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

It should be one of the simplest
things to accomplish in a basket-
ball game.
The coach taps a player on
the shoulder, tells him he's in
the game, and he reports to the
scorer's table to check in.
At Vanderbilt's Memorial
Gymnasium, however, this is
easier-said than done.
Whereas almost every arena in
the country features team benches
along the sidelines, Vanderbilt has
the benches situated along the
baseline, just behind and to the
side of the baskets, which presents
challenges for coaches and players
alike.
"It's kind of crazy, you give
yourself a little workout before
you get in the game getting to
the scorer's table," junior forward
Chris Richard said. "My very
first time going in, I was looking
around like, 'Where do we go?'"
While the players' struggles
may be limited to wandering
around to get into the game, the
coaches are presented with a
unique challenge during the first
half, when their team is shooting
at the basket at the far end of the
court.
"W'gen your offense is go-
ing away from you, your point
guard can't see you because he
has his back to you," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "So a lot of


the time, stuff that gets signaled in
off the bench has got to go through
your big players."
Donovan also considers it im-
perative that the No. 10 Gators (21-
3, 7-3 Southeastern Conference)
not allow the unusual environ-
ment to alter their style of play
when they head into Nashville to
face the Commodores (13-8, 4-6
SEC) tonight at 8.
"When your offense is
going away from you, your
point guard can't see
you because he has his
back to you. So a lot of
the time, stuff that gets
signaled in off the bench
has got to go through
your big players."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

"You don't want to get into a
situation where you're breaking
your flow or you're changing your
style because you're playing in an
environment where the benches
are under the basket," Donovan
said. "I don't think there's another
arena in all of college basketball
that has this type of setup."
Also part of that setup is a floor
that is elevated like a stage and
baskets that are suspended from
the side rather than supported


from below.
The strange arrangement
doesn't seem to affect shooting
patterns, however.
In last year's 82-65 UF win, the
Gators shot 47.2 percent from the
floor and 47.1 percent from 3-point
range.
"I kind of like Vandy as a shoot-
ing gym," junior Lee Humphrey
said. "I remember they've kind
of got soft rims. It's been a good
shooting gym for me in the past."
Humphrey has undergone a
resurgence during the past two
games, scoring 12 points in UF's
loss to South Carolina and 13 in
the Gators' win against Louisiana
State.
But he has yet to start a game
since separating his shoulder in
a bicycle accident Jan. 29, and
Donovan said he is comfort-
able keeping freshman Walter
Hodge in the starting lineup in
Humphrey's place.
While Humphrey's shooting
has been affected minimally, his
prowess as a perimeter defender
has suffered as a result of his in-
jury.
"He is still hurting. I don't think
Lee's defending like I'd like to see
him defend," Donovan said. "He's
gone backwards [on defense] just
because of the physicality of the
game. He's constantly getting
screened. When you're out there
with a dislocated shoulder and
getting screened by 310-pound
[LSU center] Glen Davis, it hurts
after a while."

on Saturday. He will come off the bench against Vanderbilt tonight.


BASEBALL

Sandwich game not taken lightly by McMahon, Gators


SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
sdvanness@alligator.org

The Bears of Mercer will appear in
Gainesville tonight for one night only, and the
storylines won't exactly write themselves.
After all, the UF baseball team is coming
off a busy opening-weekend series against
Cincinnati that amounted to a three-day of-
fensive clinic.
And coming up just around the corner is
the annual slugfest with in-state rival Miami
beginning Friday.
Sandwiched right in the middle is Mercer, a
team that boasts no star power and has lost to
the Gators by alcombined score of 50-8 in three
games since 2003.
In fact, some of the only interesting statis-
tics for tonight's matchup may come from the
history books. Mercer is one of UF's oldest op-


ponents in any sport- first competing against
the Gators on the diamond in 1913, the second
year of UF's baseball program's existence.
On that note, the Bears have managed only
one win in the series since 1925.
But that's not important, UF coach Pat
McMahon said. He's been competing against
Mercer since his playing days at Stetson, and
there's no way he's going to let his current cub
overlook the Bears.
"I'm very well aware of Mercer as a pro-
gram for a lot of different reasons," he said.
"We're going to play as hard as we can, focus
on the current ball game, and then we're going
to move on to the next team."
And while the Gators may know the his-
torical significance of the series, McMahon's
team is in line with his approach to the one-
night contest.
"They're a great team, and one of the best
things about baseball is that you never know


what's going to happen during a game,"
junior catcher Brian Jeroloman said. "We're
going to play this game just like we would
against Miami or Florida State."
Jeroloman said the key to avoiding trap
games and overlooking
smaller teams is simply to
carefully analyze the scout-
ing reports.
"You have to know
everything about a team,
and our coaches do a lot to
get us prepared," he said.
Jeroloman "Low-profile teams would
love to beat a team like UF.
This is their College World Series, and we've
got be prepared."
And based on their start to this season, the
Bears may not be so low-profile.
Mercer is coming off an opening
weekend in which they defeated Virginia


Military Institute in two of three games.
The previous weekend, VMI upset Auburn,
defeating the Tigers in two out of three games
on the road.
And Mercer's indirect display of parity
with a Southeastern Conference team greatly
impressed McMahon.
"I think that shows the tremendous parity
in college baseball," he said.
"They're a veteran ball club and that means
they have experience and good leadership,
and those are huge factors."

BRANHAM GETS NOD: After struggling against
Cincinnati in a relief appearance on open-
ing night, sophomore right-hander Michael
Branham will start on the mound against
Mercer.
"I want to step up," Branham said. "I think
I have a lot to prove, and I think I'm ready to
go."
