Receiver admits to assault rifle accident


* KENNETH TOOKES TALKED TO UF
COACH URBAN MEYER ABOUT HIS
FUTURE WITH THE TEAM.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

After admitting to inadvertently firing
a gun into an occupied apartment, Gators
wide receiver Kenneth Tookes met with
UF coaches on Thursday to discuss his


future with the team, his uncle Lawrence
Tookes said.
UF coach Urban Meyer reserved
comment until the Gainesville Police
Department completes its investigation.
Tookes hasn't been charged in the inci-
dent.
"He's a great kid, and it was an acci-
dent," Lawrence Tookes said.
Tookes and his father, Kenneth Tookes
Sr., met with Meyer on Thursday, but they
were unavailable for comment.
GPD Sgt. Keith Kameg said the shot


was fired Saturday night into an apart-
ment in The Cambridge complex that be-
longed to three women,
two of whom were home
at the time. None were
injured.
Kameg said the po-
lice were not contacted
immediately, but later
that night residents saw
Tookes a group of men leaving
the scene carrying what they thought was
a gun case. The men were identified as for-


mer UF cornerback Dee Webb, who lives
in a neighboring apartment in the com-
plex, and current players Andre Caldwell
and Reggie Lewis.
Officers arrived at Webb's apartment
and, looking through a sliding glass door,
saw AK-47 and AR-15 assault rifles as well
as a .38 caliber shell casing inside, Kameg
said.
The guns were registered to Webb, but
police still entered the apartment to secure

UF: Too many Gators


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

YULEE Deep in the woods
near the Georgia border, UF's
highest governing body met in a
hall among giraffe, antelope, tapir,
tiger, rhino, banteng and bongo to
discuss the university's strategy for
outpacing its rivals.
"We have the best and the
brightest. They are not get-
ting the education they can.
and should get."
Bernie Machen
UF president

The Board of Trustees spent
Thursday night at White Oak
Plantation, an animal conservatory
and private resort, where they dis-
cussed cutting undergraduate en-
rollment, advertising the UF brand
and other long-term issues.
Next door to the meeting room,
the heads of Serengeti grazers
- dead from natural causes on
the White Oak grounds loomed
on the walls. Across the hall was
a bowling alley with velour chairs
and marble tables.
The theme of every board meet-
ing is UF's climb into the Top 10
rankings of public research insti-
tutions, as judged by U.S. News &
World Report.
On Thursday, UF President


Bernie Machen and the trustees
chewed their fingernails over the
size of the university's student
population.
The universities of Michigan
at -Ann Arbor and California at
Berkeley, both Top 10 schools, have
about 24,000 undergraduates; UF
has 35,000.
UF has too many undergraduate
students for its low tuition to pro-
vide for, Machen said.
"We have the best and the
brightest," Machen said. "They are
not getting the education they can
and should get."
But he and the trustees resolved
not to reduce the undergradu-
ate class in the near future. The
trustees fear Florida voters would
disapprove, and legislators would
respond by cutting UF's funding.
"I think that we talk about
taking some bold steps," Board
Chairman Manny Fernandez said.
"Some of those bold steps that we
would take would be very painful
steps in Tallahassee."
A more viable solution is to in-
crease graduate enrollment.
Graduate students are not eli-
gible for the Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship program, and their
tuition is higher because unlike
undergraduate tuition UF has
the power to set it.
Trustee and UF Faculty Senate
Chairwoman Kim Tanzer pointed
out that admitting more graduate

Latin Studies honors 75th year


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

In 1931, UF dedicated the Plaza
of the Americas by planting 21 live
oak trees representing the 21 re-
publics'in the Americas at the time
- to celebrate the first meeting
of one of the first Latin American
studies programs in the country.
On Thursday, about 200 UF com-
munity members celebrated the
75th anniversary of the Center for
Latin American Studies.


The celebration beganwith an
awards ceremony honoring 17
retired professors who contrib-
uted to the study of Latin America
and with praise
On for the center from
Campus UF Provost Janie
Fouke.
Initially called the
Institute of Inter-American Affairs,
the program promoted research
and exchange between students
in the Americas. It began offering
master's and doctoral degrees in


Latin American Studies in 1951.
"Our focus is very much on
what I call the integration of the
Americas," said Carmen Diana
Deere, director of the center. "U.S.
policy has an incredible impact on
Latin America, and what happens
in Latin America has a very impor-
tant impact on the U.S."
The program- was officially
named the Center for Latin

LOCAL
About 1,000 acres of Ocala
National Forest to be sold
About 1,000 acres of the Ocala
National Forest may be sold to
fund a proposal in President
Bush's 2007 budget.
The proposal aims to sell
about 200,000 acres of national
forest land to raise about $800
million to fund a national act
that pays for schools and roads in
rural areas.
Denise Rains, spokeswoman
for the VU.S. Department of
Agriculture Forest Service in
Florida, said although no lands
have yet been sold, the service
plans to carry out Bush's pro-
posal.
"The act, over the years, has
helped strengthen rural areas
with national forest lands within
their boundaries," Rains said.
"We're committed to seeing the
proposal through."
The land can bemused for any
purpose, including development,
Rains said.
"If we have willing buyers,
it'd be difficult to say no," she
said. "But we would take public
input."
Rains said all the. revenue
from the land sales will be used
to fund the act, which aims to
help rural areas hurt by cutbacks
in the logging industry.
No action will be taken until
2007, and Rains is encouraging
the public to comment on the
proposal.
The 973 acres of the Ocala
National Forest that.may be sold
include more isolated areas. They
are areas that are difficult to man-
age and not as suitable for recre-
ation, Rains said.
"They're already identified as
lands we'd exchange or dispose
of if we had an opportunity," she
said.

Movie-inspired group displays acts of kindness


By JULIA CARVALHO
Alligator Contributing Writer

For the hapless bus riders who
just missed their ride, the lonely,
love-forsaken single on Valentines'
Day and the stressed-out student
entering an exam sans pencil, there
is hope.
And his name is Adam
Spunberg.
Although he and his cohorts
work anonymously, whispers of
their good deeds have circulated
around the UF campus since they
began two years ago.
But they are no college-town
myth. They are the Amelie Poulain
Society, and they exist to make
people's days a little bit more
pleasant.
The nonprofit group, which
sprang from the brain of 23-year-
old Spunberg, was inspired by the
2001 French movie "Amelie" about
a young woman who performs
random and anonymous acts of
kindness.
Since its inception, the group
has grown to a mailing list of more
than 600 people and has done more
than 10 "good deeds" around the
Gainesville community.
From handing out pencils be-
fore a big exam to raising money
for the American Cancer Society in
memory of a fellow student's fa-
ther, any good deed fits right into
the society's founding principles.


"We do nice things simply for
the sake that we can do them,"-
said Spunberg, who is also a sec-
ond-year law student from Palm
Beach Gardens.
So far,. the schemes have ma-
terialized into things like hugs
on Valentine's Day, rides for bus
stragglers and even a football-
shaped farewell collage for Ron
Zook after he was fired.
The idea for the group hit
Spunberg while he was an un-
dergraduate student at Columbia
University after he saw the movie
"Amelie."
"I have a liking for
On that sort of thing,"
Campus he said. "I've always
had a soft spot for
artsy, romantic films."
The group finances its activities
through various fundraising.
Sheila. Zolnoor, the group's
public relations and recruitment
director, recalled one good deed
when the society donated $500 to
the American Cancer Society after
a classmate's father died from the
disease last year.
The best-intentioned but least
productive event, according to
Natalie Regalado, the group's un-
dergraduate director, was picking
up people who had missed their
bus. Many people were hesitant to
get into cars with over-enthusias-
tic strangers, which hindered the
event's success.


Though they don't advertise
that their group is doing these
deeds, people often come up and
ask who they are. Often people
are intrigued. Sometimes they are
inspired to get involved.
One of Spunberg's latest
ideas has been to tour University
Avenue paying parking meters to
save people from getting tickets.
Before it can be implemented,
though, Spunberg said he needs to
check up on his idea's legality.
The society initially grew out of
the law school, but it has since at-
tracted undergraduate and gradu-
ate students alike, Spunberg said.
"I think that it puts a smile on
people's faces to know that the
group is around," Zolnoor said.
"There's nothing like it, and I
know it warms people's hearts
when they see Adam or any other
member just being nice."
Lee Ford-Tritt, a professor at
the Levin College of Law, believes
he was a beneficiary of one of
Spunberg's good deeds. After ar-
riving in Gainesville last year to
teach, he had Spunberg in one of
his classes and was asked to be
the group's faculty adviser. He
suspects Spunberg invited him to
be involved so that it would help
integrate him into the Gainesville'
community.
"When most law students are
consumed with self-improvement
issues, Mr. Spunberg looks to im-

prove the daily lives of others," he community, but APS has the add-
said. "Not only does APS provide ed bonus of making lawyers look

Frat's Derby Days reins in $16,000 for sick children


* PANHELLENIC SORORITIES AIDED
THE CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK.

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

Sigma Chi Fraternity raised more than
$16,000 for the Children's Miracle Network in
its annual Derby Days philanthropy event.


The event, which took place last Friday
and Saturday, included a scavenger hunt
and a line dance competition among all 16
Panhellenic Council sororities.
Money was raised through T-shirt sales
and advertising in the Sigma Chi Derby Days
magazine. Sororities, Sigma Chi alumni and
fraternity members also contributed dona-
tions.
This was the most money the chapter has


ever raised for a philanthropy event.
Annie Morton, the project coordinator
from CMN, said the money will benefit pedi-
atric research, lifesaving medical equipment,
patient education and items such as videos
and computers.
"We are just really proud of Sigma Chi
and their dedication to Children's Miracle
Network," Morton said. "We are excited
about any contribution. We know they're re-


ally excited about it too."
Derby Days Chairman J.T. Smith said
Sigma Chi's national headquarters discontin-
ued Derby Days as the national philanthropy
event this year, but the UF chapter decided to
stick with if.
"We were able to give tours to show where
CMN contributes," Smith said. "We got to
see the pediatriR ward and CMN's money at
work. It was really cool."

Candidate's sharp eye prompts third budget review


* ANOTHER MISTAKE WAS FOUND
AT AN SG EMERGENCY MEETING.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

As student senators rushed to meet a
voting deadline, another error was detected
in Student Government's embattled budget
Thursday afternoon.
At an emergency meeting, senators re-
viewed SG's student organizational budget
for the third time. But just as the meeting
ended, senators were called back to their seats
after a candidate for Student Body treasurer
spotted an error.
Susan Henriques, the candidate and a for-
mer employee of the SG Finance Office, found


a $67 discrepancy in the Faces Modeling
Troupe budget.
Just before Henriques found the mistake,
the Budget & Appropriations Committee reas-
sured senators that the newly revised budget
was "flawless."
The error in the Faces budget allotted $200
for officers to spend on awards $67 more
than SG laws allow. SG law states that a group
can spend no more than 5 percent of its total
budget on awards.
Thursday's emergency meeting occurred
two days after a series of errors was discov-
ered in a $553,721 budget for student organi-
zations, causing the Senate's regular meeting
to plunge into chaos.
SG law requires senators to approve the
budget before the Spring election begins on
Feb. 28.
The adjusted budget allocates $553,020 to


student organizations.
SG Finance Office Business Manager Stan
Beckerdite, who took responsibility for the
budget's previous errors, worked to rem-
edy his mistakes with the budget committee


Boyles
Boyles


Wednesday.
"I don't know how they
missed it," Henriques said.
"I don't know if they just
didn't think about the 5
percent cap."
Budget Committee
Chairman Ryan Moseley
said that despite the error
in its awards money, Faces


would not suffer any budget cuts. Moseley is
running against Henriques in a three-way race
for Student Body treasurer.
Instead, the money subtracted from the
organization's awards budget will be redis-


tribute into its program funding.
Henriques notified Moseley of the er-
ror just as Senate President John Boyles had
adjourned Thursday's meeting. Boyles is a
candidate for Student Body president.
Henriques' new calculations elicited a cho-
rus of groans from senators, who were forced
back into their seats while Moseley and other
budget officials reviewed their figures.
"I didn't check that. I didn't check the 5
percent," Beckerdite said. "I didn't catch that
it was over 5 percent."
Moseley said part of the blame also fell on
the budget committee but emphasized that
the error was small and would be rectified
quickly.
Errors discovered at Tuesday's Senate
meeting were fixed by Thursday, but not
before three student organizations saw their
budgets reshaped.


City Commission candidates discuss bar closing times


By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Extending the time bars close in
Gainesville would be a disaster, said
City Commission candidate Tony
Domenech in a forum Thursday
night.
About 50 residents attended the
forum hosted by the University Park
Neighborhood Association, which is
located north of West University
Avenue and west of Northwest 13th
Street.
"I can't understand how a re-
sponsible adult would advocate
something like that in the young-
est city in the state .of Florida,"
Domenech said.
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who is
running against Domenech for the
at-large seat, said she supports ex-
tending the time bars close to 4 a.m.
if alcohol sales end at 2 a.m.
Mastrodicasa, who is the junior
associate director for the UF Honors
Program, lived downtown from
1997 to 2003 and said the current
law creates instant chaos for police
trying to cear the streets when all
the bars are forced to dose.
"I don't think shoving everyone
out at 2 a.m. makes it any safer or
any better for neighborhoods," she
said.
Domenech said extending the

bar dosing time from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.
would disrupt law enforcement,
cost the city more money and create
a problem for residents.
"If you think your neighbor-
hoods are in trouble now, you wait
until the raves come back," he said.
However, in 2004, Domenech
echoed Mastrodicasa's position on
bar dosing times.
Domenech said in a December
2004 interview that letting students
trickle out at 4 a.m. would "be a


safer situation all the way around."
"If you shut off drinking at 2 a.m.
and the bars are able to stay open
until 4 a.m., it's cear you won't have
the same number of people hitting
the streets at the same time," he said
in 2004.
Barbara Sharpe, who is running
for the District 1 seat, was also in
attendance. She said she does not
want to change the bar dosing time.
In response to a question from
a resident concerned about stu-


dent parties in his neighborhood,
Domenech also said he would push
for much stronger laws to govern
areas where students live.
"I am going to advocate for the
strictest laws for rental properties in
the United States," he said.
To combat disturbances in
residential areas, Mastrodicasa said
she believes it is important to work
with the university and to increase
resources for Gainesville Police
Department's Party Patrol.


"Not all students are bad renters
and not all bad renters are students,"

Student neighborhoods face 50 car break-ins within 3 weeks


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A series of car burglaries have
Gainesville police searching for a man
who they think is linked to 50 car break-
ins in several student-populated apart-
ment complexes.
Police issued a warrant Tuesday for
the arrest of 29-year-old Warren Smyre for
breaking into a car over the weekend.
Police also believe he's involved in
burglaries that have occurred from Archer
Road to Williston Road and Southwest
34th Street to Southwest 27th Street, said
GPD spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg.
"We haven't seen this many car break-
ins in a while," Kameg said.
There have been 50 car break-ins in the


past three weeks, and 24 of those break-
ins occurred between Monday night and
Tuesday morning, Kameg said.
"That is an extensive number of bur-
glaries, and that cannot happen," Kameg
said.
Apartment complexes where cars have
been broken into include Countryside
at the University Apartments, Stirling
University Glades, Towne Parc Apartments
and Regency Oaks Apartments.
Police are continuing to investigate if
there are any other suspects for the car
break-ins.
GPD will be patrolling, the southwest
area more and will be using undercover
cops, Kameg said.
Kameg said burglars have been smash-
ing car windows and taking car stereos
and any valuables lying around inside.


- Kameg said the southwest area of town
is a target for car break-ins because there
are so many apartment complexes.

"There are a thousand cars in the
parking lots. Nobody really knows
who belongs there or where they
belong."
Keith Kameg
GPD spokesman

He added that car burglary is a major
problem in Gainesville and that residents
need to be more careful.
"There are a thousand cars in the park-
ing lots," Kameg said. "Nobody really
knows who belongs there or where they
belong."
Detective Don Geelhoed was off duty
in Greenwich Green Apartments, 3515 SW


39th Blvd., when he heard the sound of a
car alarm at 4 a.m.
When he walked outside, Geelhoed
saw Smyre with another suspect by a car,
Kameg said.
Geelhoad asked them to stop before
they ran off in a white Jeep Cherokee.
GPD was able to determine the owner
of the car using its license plate number.
Smyre has been involved in previous in-
cidents with that particular car, Kameg
said.
Kameg said Smyre has an extensive
criminal record for burglary and that GPD
has dealt with him before.
Smyre is being charged with burglary
of a conveyance and grand theft.
If anyone has any information regard-
ing the burglaries or Smyre's whereabouts,
contact Don Geelhoed at (352) 334-3349.
Anonymous callers can contact Crime
Stoppers at (352) 372-STOP.

students would bring in more revenue.
If Machen had an extra $150 million
to spend on the university, he said he
would hire 500 faculty members, give
all faculty a 10 percent raise and hire
100 new academic advisers. He said
UF's low tuition rate leaves students
shortchanged on advising.
Some trustees suggested cutting
from the undergraduate class in order to
concentrate resources on fewer students.
They stressed the primacy of degree
quality over degree quantity.
Machen said he would keep enroll-
ment the same.
"Other state schools are going hell-
bent to increase enrollment. It is very
dangerous for the quality of education,"
he said. "We're going to keep it where it
is."
As much as UF's Top 10 drive is about
quality of education, it is also about
associating the UF name with quality
education.
Associate Vice President for
Marketing and Public Relations Joe
Hice presented figures to the trustees
describing UF's advertising campaign.
He estimates the "Go Gators" televi-
sion commercial reached more than 37
million households by airing during UF
football games. Radio spots reached 10


million households.
Snoop Dogg's entourage watched
Super Bowl XXXIX on the same screen
Hice used for his presentation Thursday.
Hice announced plans to air the
original commercial on cable television
in nine major metropolitan areas in
Florida.
Soon, UF slogans like "The Foundation
for the Gator Nation" will show at major
Florida airports and emblazon 75-foot-
high billboards on Interstate 75 and in
Tallahassee.
UF ,Trustee Carlos
.,i^^, .;..-.-:; ., Alfonso sug-
gested planting
billboards in
Chicago, Los Angeles and New York
City.
Product placement is also a factor.
Hice said the marketing plan is designed
to pique the interest of presidents and
provosts at other universities. In formu-
lating its rankings, U.S. News & World
Report sends out surveys to university
administrators across the country. Hice
said targeting school officials could also
encourage exceptional faculty and staff
to transfer to UF.
"Everyone has great students, every-
one has great faculty," Hice said of UF's
major rivals. "Everyone has the greatest
of everything."
"We're the only one that's telling the
story different."


Center bridges gap between Americas


LATIN, from page 1


hosts about 150 undergraduate students
seeking minors, certificates and master's
degrees. Though the center does not offer a
Latin American Studies major, about 12,000
students were enrolled in Latin American
Studies content courses last year.
Deere said the center would like to at-
tract more undergraduates by offering a
major but doesn't want to compete with
other majors, such as political science.
Eric Minzenberg, who studied with the
center for his concentration in tropical con-
servation and development, said the anni-
versary shows the longevity of the center's
programs.
"Not just that it's been around this long,
but obviously people are being educated
and doing something," Minzenberg said.
In recent years, the center has started
focusing on Latin Americans living in the
United States, Deere said.
S"Why do we find Latin Americans in
Florida? It's because of conditions in their
home countries revolution in the case
of Cuba, natural disasters in the case of
Central America," she said.
The center offers not only academics but
also student life programs such as Jacare
Brazil, which means "Gators" in Portugese.
Keynote speaker Arturo Valenzuela,
who directed Inter-American Affairs at


the National Security Council under the
Clinton Administration, discussed relations
between the U.S. and Latin America after
the Cold War.
"When you look at this center, you can't
help but be impressed at the work that has
been done here," Valenzuela said. "This pe-
riod of democratic progress still has many
obstacles. Latin America remains one of the
main regions of inequality in the world."
"When you look at this center,
you can't help but be impressed
at the work that has been done
here."
Arturo Valenzuela
Latin American studies director at
Georgetown Univeristy

Valenzuela said the Clinton administra-
tion's multilateral approach toward reform
was the best policy for the region involv-
ing other countries instead of placing the
burden solely on the U.S. Both the Bush and
Clinton administrations made mistakes,
Valenzuela said, adding that immigration
issues with Mexico remained unresolved.
"After 9/11, the hemisphere dropped
off the radar," Valenzuela said. "We used
to say Trade not Aid.' But today it is dear
that trade is not the answer or not the
only answer."

,IN HEATES VERYHER FEBUAR







6, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17,2006


This week has been pretty crazy. During our weekly budget
meeting, we happened to discover some flaws in our numbers.
Immediately, the meeting broke down into a shout fest as our
editors accused each other of misfeasance.
Or maybe we're just getting confused with another budget
in another meeting. Things just seem to blend together this late
in the semester.
And that's why we like to get the facts straight each week in
a recap that we like to call...


Darts & Laurels
We begin by offering a better-late-than-never LAUREL to
the SG parties Swamp and Unite. Unite unleashed its platform
on unsuspecting voters Sunday evening, and Swamp followed
suit Tuesday afternoon.
For those keeping score, that's 15 and 13 days away from the
election, respectively.
In the past, we've darted both of the parties for their tardi-
ness. Now it seems like they've finally wised up.
Not that it really matters. After all, as John Boyles noted once
before, "I think most everyone is going to feel the same way
about issues."
It's a little depressing that there's no real ideological battle
over platforms. But that's a topic for another day. In the mean-
time, it's good to see that the parties finally got the message.
Next, we toss a welcome-back-to-civilization LAUREL to the
brothers of Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity for finally getting their
hot water back. The frat's water heater broke down over winter
break, so this entire semester, they've had to do without many
of the comforts of modem living.
Frat brother Jared Rabin recounted the water heater's final
moments. "Thursday morning, Eugene (the house dad) ran
down the hall saying, 'Take your showers quick, the water
heater is going to blow,'" Rabin said. "I got one shower in before
the water was cold."
We're just glad that the heater didn't take the brothers out
along with it.
Continuing, we present. a way-to-help-us-on-our-way-to-
the-Top-10 DART to state Rep. Dick Kravitz for proposing
Florida House Bill 205. The bill, if passed, would prohibit state
funding from being used to help international students.
Lynn Frazier, an associate director of UF's International
Center, said the bill will give Florida a real "black eye."
"At the very best-case scenario, it creates havoc for us in that
it presents Florida as a very unwelcoming state for international
students," she said.
The problem is that none of the other 49 states in the union
have such laws on the books. If UF has to contend with this one,
there is a strong possibility that international students will just
go to other state universities around the nation.
Additionally, the bill will save the state only $8 million,
though the Association of International Educators said inter-
national students and their families contributed $626 million to
Florida's economy during the 2004-2005 academic year.
We're not exactly math majors, but that sounds like a pretty
bad trade-off to us.
We finish by offering a well-eared now-we-know-you-
aren't-joking-around LAUREL to the Iranian confectioners'
union for renaming a certain breakfast food.
In Iran, the ubiquitous Danish pastry shall henceforth be
dubbed "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."
The change is yet another reaction against the now-infamous
Danish cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
Bakery owner Ahmad Mahmoudi described the union's rea-
soning. "This is a punishment for those who started misusing
freedom of expression to insult the sanctities of Islam."
We agree. Adding the prophet's name to a greasy breakfast
pastry is a great way to pay him homage.
And the strategy worked so well for us. Dropping "French
fries" for "freedom fries" whipped those Europeans right back
into line.
Still, we'd rather see the irate Middle East renaming break-
fast foods than torching KFCs.

RIAA a menace to music consumers


he Recording Industry Association of America has
been fighting an ongoing battle against file-sharing
companies and users for more than five years.
The RIAA has worked extensively since the days of
Napster to paint itself as the good guy forced to act in
self-defense. Considering that file sharing is often ille-
gal, this image may be warranted.
However, the actions of the RIAA have become in-
creasingly hostile toward the average consumer.
The association recently submitted a filing under
the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which provides
criminal punishment for digital copyright infringement.
The filing indicated that the RIAA felt that it should be
illegal for consumers who have legally purchased a mu-
sic CD to make copies of the music onto their computer
or another CD, even for backup purposes.
The filing goes on to state, "Even if CDs do become
damaged, replacements are readily available at afford-
able prices."
That sounds fair. When a CD breaks, instead of lis-
tening to an MP3 backup made in two minutes, an indi-
vidual should buy a new copy at the music store.
It is highly suspect that the same industry that stands
to profit from CD sales would encourage well-meaning
consumers to buy more CDs.
The filing also implies that the RIAA considers all
MP3 files to be completely illegal. Fed up with the ram-
pant piracy that has resulted since the MP3 format came
into the mainstream, the RIAA has decided to simply
declare them illegal. Consequently, this means that to
the RIAA, MP3 players like the beloved iPod are no bet-
ter than illegal paraphernalia that encourages unlawful
activity.


1W'

Scott Gilton
Scott Strikes Back


For an association that has
tried to portray itself as a noble
defender of music and creativity,
decrying MP3s and MP3 players
as copyright infringements seems
unnecessarily aggressive.
Obviously, filings such as
these are ridiculous in a real-


letters@alligator.org world sense. The MP3 player
market is larger than ever. And
the RIAA's previous attempts to
put a stop to illegal file sharing have been ignored by
the majority of those who engage in such behavior.
It would seem that the RIAA and the music industry
as a whole are both out of touch with those they are try-
ing to reach. Now those same individuals view them as
a hostile and alienating force.
A year ago, a lawyer for the music industry was
quoted as saying, "The record companies my clients
- have said, for some time now... that it's perfectly
lawful to take a CD that you've purchased, upload it
onto your computer, put it onto your iPod."
Reversals like this discourage those who have tried
to play by the music industry's rules and provide more
fuel for those who willingly pirate music.
The RIAA would do well to realize that in the capital-
ist system that exists in this nation, the moral and legal
high ground only carries one so far. It is a foundation
for negotiations with the consumer base, not a mandate
from the heavens to attempt to control the market with an
iron grip.

Budget bungles show serious problems
As the vice president of a student or-
ganization, I understand the creation and
implementation of a budget is the single most
important step of an organization.
The Student Government of UF, respon-
sible for millions of dollars for students and
organizations, should notbe having the prob-
lems of a first-year organization. I find it very
distasteful that members of SG are so quick to
point fingers at others and equally as fast to
push blame off themselves.
There are no fingers to point, no scape-
goats to blame all members of SG are. at
fault in this instance. The flawed budgets
were presented at a Senate meeting, but no
one spotted any errors. The checks system
is obviously not doing its job, and it may
be necessary to begin making changes in SG
- not in its people but in its procedures. The
majority of student organizations rarely have
budget discrepancies, and they deal with
substantially less money than the governing
body.
I feel that occurrences like this should not
dissuade students from becoming more in-
volved in SG and other organizations. Rather
than sit back, students should want to make
SG better and assure that problems like this
don't happen again.
Devin Plevka
3BA


Moseley not at fault for budget oversight
Student Government is riddled with rep-
resentatives who would sell their soul for a
promotion. We know it, we hate it, but that's
what we've got to work with.
At first glance, I was appalled with Ryan
Moseley's supposed oversight until I read
that SG Finance accepted blame for this fiasco.
As a past organizational president, I couldn't
believe it. On a good day, working with SG
Finance is typically a mix between leading a
reluctant mule uphill and screaming into the
wind. For SG Finance to take the blame must
mean they "f***ed up royally." My apologies,
Chairman Moseley.
As for Moseley's fraternity brother, I have
a different tone.
Jared Hemandez has been involved with
SG for years, and to place blame as quickly
and erroneously as he did is unprofessional.
We see through you, Jared.
Speaking of which, while your marionette
skills are impressive, we would appreciate let-
ting Allison Cullin and Lola Bovell speak for
themselves. I'm a fan of both women, and I'd
like to keep it that way.
Jared promises the "end of politics as
usual," yet politics as usual is exactly what we
are seeing. How can one candidate simultane-
ously be Pinocchio and Geppetto?
Asher Kagleone
UFAlumnus


Voters should care about the real issues
As a "dyed-in-the-wool independent"
voter, Morris Bembry should vote according
to the actions of the government that actu-
ally affects his life.
Let Bembry not worry about what is said
at a funeral that he didn't attend and per-
haps only watched via Brit Hume's beady
eyes.
Let Bembry worry about the billions
of dollars of debt he and his children will
inherit.
Let Bembry worry about the unqualified
cronies occupying government positions
that he'll rely on when the big one floods his
Florida home.
Bembry shouldn't be moved by what
is said as much by what is done or not
done. At the least, Bembry should consider
not voting for the party that cut the funding
of his student loans, that describes science
theory as science fiction and that data mines
his overseas phone calls illegally.
Was Bembry appalled by the political
overtures during the Reagan funeral?
Probably not.
If, as an independent, Bembry is swayed
away by some anti-war comments made
during a ceremony for an anti-war advocate,
the Democrats don't want or need his vote.
Ric Carrasquilla
UFAlumnus


Personal life should be off-limits in jobs
This is a reaction to the article in
Wednesday's Alligator, "Officials monitor stu-
dent workers online." I don't understand how
someone's personal life, which may be going
out, drinking and having fun, should in any
way affect his or her chances for leadership.
The ones in charge at the Dean of,Students
Office explain that they "want to make sure
that the people they put in those positions
are leading with integrity." So now they're
not allowed to enjoy their lives the way they
want to anymore, to which they actually have
the right.
So students should basically delete all the
information that would make them look bad
in public and go ahead and lie and pretend
they're the most appropriate ones on campus
for these positions. This is exactly an example
of what the people in the dean's office con-
tinuously do wrong they produce from a
minor issue a very large and unnecessary one.
In this case, it's making student leaders hide
their true personas for the sake of not losing
their leadership statuses. Keeping the original
information was much better, because at least
we were able to see who our fellow student
leaders really were. In my opinion, openness
between the leaders and students would pro-
duce far better relationships.

City debates towing fees


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer

As if getting towed isn't bad enough, mo-
torists who park illegally can get stuck with
extra fees for not having exact change.
And the Gainesville City Commission may
not be able to do a thing about it.
Members of the commission's Public Safety
Committee met Thursday to discuss the ongo-
ing issue of towing payment methods.
Several Gainesville towing companies are
unwilling to accept credit cards as a payment
method for towing services, requiring either
debit cards or cash.
"If a company wants to go out of business,
sure they'll accept credit cards," Ultimate
Towing President Stan Forron said in a phone
interview Thursday.
Although the city sets the actual towing
rate, it has no authority to control the payment
methods accepted by companies.
Payment methods are "strictly a decision
each business makes," Gainesville Police
Department Capt. Ray Weaver said.
Forron said Ultimate Towing went into
debt because of disputed and unpaid credit
card charges.
As Gainesville's population grows, so do


the amount of tows per year. Weaver said
11,137 vehicles were towed in Gainesville in
2005,.compared to 8,200 four years ago.
The committee members discussed the
added hassle motorists face when towing com-
panies won't provide change on site.
"If a company wants to go out of
business, sure they'll accept credit
cards."
Stan Forron
Ultimate Towing president

But Forron said his employees usually carry
enough change unless they become extremely
busy. He said he has never heard someone say
they could not get cash back.
"Whatever stupid-ass idiot commission said
that doesn't know their ass from the ground,"
Forron said during the phone interview.
His company charges a -storage fee of $20
per day, and he said he plans to increase it. He
said the fee compensates for low towing rates.
"All these folks say 'you target-the stu-
dents,' but we target people who park ille-
gally," Forron said. "We are contracted to do a
job, and we're gonna do it."


Campaign turns sweet

acancino@alligator.org

They have Chunky Monkey, Apple-
y Ever After and Cherry Garcia, but her
favorite is simple: anything with choco-
late. Student Body treasurer candidate
Susan Henriques chatted with students
Thursday afternoon at Ben & Jerry's
Ice Cream in an effort to keep her cam-
paign open to students, she said.
Most of Henriques' constituents
were students who were waiting for
a bus across West University Avenue
from the UF campus.
If elected, Henriques will control
about $12 million of student money.
Henriques, an independent can-
didate, was the first person to release
her platform last week. She said she is
looking for new things to add to it.
"Things are always changing, so
you always have to be asking people
[for their opinion]," she said.


Although Henriques talked to
students who were not familiar with
Student Government, they asked her
to look into more hours of operation
for the Southwest Recreation Center,
on-campus parking and ways to better
use the Activity & Service Fee.
Todd Maxwell, a second-year
graduate
Student Government student
and a
manager
at Ben & Jerry'ssaid he did not know
Henriques was campaigning outside
the shop, but he saw students who
support her wearing pins last week.
After talking to them, Maxwell said
he decided to vote for Henriques a
non-Greek candidate adding that
SG is usually controlled by Greek or-
ganizations.
"I wish it was more of a fair pro-
cess," he said about the SG election,
which will be held on Feb. 28 and
March 1.

Gymnasts prep for postseason

a COMPETING IN TWO WEEK- 11 I'0
END MEETS, UF WILL LOOK 0
fO IMPROVE ITS SEEDING. h, 'M g"

By CHRIS WHITE li j' r
Alligator Writer Rlu- En -.


The Gators look to prove they
can stay tough and compete
through postseason levels of
wear this weekend as they travel
to Kentucky today ard then to a
dual meet Sunday against North
Carolina State and William & Mary
in Raleigh, N.C.
"The reason for this double
weekend is to prepare the ath-
letes for a Super Six-type scenario
at nationals," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said. "[We're] able to put our
athletes out there not two days in
a row [as in the NCAA champion-
ships], but similar to that."
With only three meets remaining
after this weekend, the No. 5 Gators
(8-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference)
had better be prepared.
Tonight's meet at No. 18
Kentucky (7-2, 2-2 SEC), and
Sunday's against N.C. State (7-
4) and W&M (5-6), will give the
Gators a chance to improve their
regional qualifying score.
The regional qualifying score,
which determines postseason seed-
ing, factors in a team's three high-
est away-meet scores. The Gators
are looking to replace their low-
est score of the season, a 193.575
earned at Oregon State, with some-
thing better from this weekend.
The Gators shouldn't have
much of a problem, as their scores
have steadily increased since the
Jan. 13 quad meet in Oregon.
Last week, in a quad meet at
the O'Connell Center, the Gators
defeated No. 24 North Carolina,
No.21 Arkansas and No. 29 West
Virginia, posting a 196.95, their
highest score so far.
The Gators are one step closer
to the SEC Championships and the
NCAA National Championships,
as they evened up their con-
ference record with a win
against Arkansas in the meet.
The meet showcased UF freshman
Corey Hartung, who earned SEC
Gymnast of the Week honors by
gaining a season-high all-around
score of 39.45. It marked the third
all-around title of the season for

Hartung, who also matched her
season-best floor routine and bal-
ance beam scores.
* Still, Hartung said she isn't
satisfied.
"There's always room for me
to improve," she said. "There are
little mistakes I have on each event,
so every meet I try to improve and
do better. There's always room for
improvement."
Sophomore Tiffany Murry also
stood out for UF at the meet, set-
ting the Gators' season-high vault


and floor routine scores.
Murray, who has been suffering
from severe tendonitis in her shoul-
der, should be seeing more time in
the lineup this weekend, possibly
competing in the all-around, Faehn
said.
"She did a great job last year,
but it's a totally different Tiffany
this year," Faehn said. "She is tak-
ing complete responsibility for her
success and her gymnastics every
time she's out there, and she steps
up."


Former UF cornerback Webb not charged after possessing guns

the weapons.
At the apartment, police called Webb
and told him to return, Kameg said. Webb
arrived back at the apartment in Caldwell's
sport utility vehicle, in which police found
a .38-caliber revolver and a 12-gauge shot-
gun. Both guns were stored legally and reg-
istered to Webb, so no charges were filed.
Kameg said an intoxicated Webb, who
in January opted to forgo his senior season


at UF to enter the NFL draft, told officers
"he had a million-dollar contract waiting
for him in the NFL, and his lawyers would
take care of the problem." Webb then
asked officers to handcuff him and take
him to jail.
Kameg said the police had no reason
to arrest Webb. Tookes' fate, however, re-
mains unclear. The incident took place just
hours after a team banquet where players
were praised for their exemplary off-field
conduct during the last year.
"We were very pleased what Coach
Meyer had done with these kids," said


the Rev. Herbert McGraw, stepfather of
UF receiver Dallas Baker. "Off-campus
and even on-campus incidents were cut
down to almost zero, and then something
like this happened. It could have been a lot
worse. We just thank god that the bullets
did not hit'anyone."
Lawrence Tookes said the shooting was
an accident and Tookes shouldn't lose his
scholarship and a chance to graduate from
college because of it.
"That's not his character," Lawrence
Tookes said. "He's never been in trouble in
his life. If you're going to penalize some-


one for an accident, then why do you even
have the word accident?"
Shocked that a college student would
possess assault rifles, McGraw said that
the incident should serve as a warning to
the rest of the Gators.
"There are probably other kids and
football players that have guns in their
apartments. I'm pretty sure the coaches
never thought this would have happened.
I'm pretty sure this is an area they've tec-
tured kids on. I'm pretty sure that this is a
warning, a wake-up call for the rest of the
guys."

SOFTBALL

UF prepares for No. 1 Michigan at weekend tourney


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

Defending national champion
Michigan will come to town this
weekend, but the Gators aren't wor-
ried. Not yet at least.
Riding into this weekend's GRU
Invitational on a three-game win-
ning streak, UF coach Tim Walton
has more concerns besides how to
prepare for the No. 1' team in the
country, which the Gators will face
Saturday at 4 p.m.


"We haven't talked about
Michigan at all," Walton said.
"Everybody we've played this year
so far has been a pretty good op-
ponent for us, and so we've had to
focus on them.
"We want to compete and show
that we can compete at this level ev-
ery day. It's exciting. There are going
to be some good games."
UF will certainly have more
competition than the Wolverines
this weekend. The Gators also will
play Penn State, Longwood and No.


21 DePaul for a grueling three-day,
six-game stretch.
In order to
keep pace with
the high level of
talent this week-
end, Walton is
looking .for. his
young pitching,
which includes
two freshmen
starters, to ma-
ture quickly.
"Our pitching staff still has to


improve, and they know that,"
Walton said. "If they can get over
the hump and make quality pitch-
es, and we can cut our strikeouts
down, we'll be in every ball game
this weekend."
However, those strikeouts at the
plate have proven to be a problem
recently. After the Gators struck out
12 times against South Florida on
Wednesday night, Walton hopes to
resolve the issue and soon.
"They're taking good pitches and
swinging at bad pitches," he said. "I


think it's just coming from anxiety)
and trying too hard. They want tc
be a hero. [Lindsey Cameron] is uy
there swinging and almost broke hei
back a couple times."
But even with the Gators' battin,
woes, Cameron said she's ready to
face Michigan.
"We want to play against them
because they have everything to
lose, and we don't," she said. "As
Gators, we want to protect our
house. It's a great opportunity to
play the No. 1 team."


Guard's agent sought trade


Gators set for Texas rematch


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The No. 2 UF women's tennis team could taste a
showdown against Stanford in the NCAA Finals last
season.
Ahead 3-1 against Texas in the NCAA semifinals,
the Gators needed only 1 point to secure their seat.
But the Longhorns rallied, winning the last three
matches to send the Gators home with a heart-break-
ing 4-3 loss. UF will face No. 3 Texas for the first time
since the NCAAs on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Ring
Tennis Complex.
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said this match is not
a statement game with any type of revenge factor, but
he would like to see how this year's team matches up
against one of the nation's best.
"It will be our toughest test to date," Thomqvist
said. "I hope the players feel the match is a little extra
special."
Texas is a well-coached team that is very disci-
plined, Thomqvist said. He is looking for the Gators
to have a lot of energy in doubles and stay focused
in singles.
The doubles match, which created the differ-
ence in last year's semifinal match between the two
schools, remains an area of difficulty for the Gators


this season.
Thomqvist changed the doubles' pairings in UF's
last match against Florida State, hoping to correct
poor attitudes, he said. The Gators won all three
doubles matches against the Seminoles.
"I was hoping it would open their eyes a little bit,"
Thomqvist said. "We needed a change in attitude on
doubles."
"I was hoping it would open their eyes a
little bit. We needed a change in atti-
tude on doubles."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

Thomqvist also inserted senior Alexis Gordon
into the No. 1 singles position for the first time this
season, moving No. 1-ranked sophomore Diana
Srebrovic down to the second court.
Both won their matches convincingly.
Gordon will continue playing No. 1 singles
against Texas, Thomqvist said.
"I've seen them already, so I'm pretty familiar
with their style," Gordon said. "We need to come
out being aggressive and firing balls. Just play every
point hard and fight it out."


WALSH, from page 20

But, Walsh said he never
checked into a room and told an
assistant coach he was leaving
the team.
"I watched [the coach] go
up to the front desk and say,
'We don't need a room for Matt
Walsh,'" Walsh said.
Walsh's agent, Jason Levien,
said he asked the team to trade
or release his client. Birdsong
said he explored trade op-
portunities but claimed the
RimRockers needed a power
forward and teams were only
willing to trade another guard
for Walsh.
He also said he wouldn't
release Walsh without receiving
something in return, and if he
waived an unhappy player, it
would set the wrong precedent
for the NBDL.
Birdsong said Walsh never
had the right attitude. But the
general manager did praise
former UF guard Anthony
Roberson, who is also with the
RimRockers.


"Matt didn't handle himself
like a professional," Birdsong
said. "I'm not trying to speak
ill of him, but at times, he didn't
want to practice, and he said he
was hurt even though he wasn't
hurt. He really just didn't want
to practice.
"He's a very good shooter,
but I didn't see him coming
early or staying late to work on
his game. He has to get stron-
ger. He's not a good defensive
player, his lateral movements
are not that good, he's not strong
inside and he never goes to the
basket. No one is going to just let
you stand out and shoot."
Denying Birdsong's claims,
Walsh said Billy Donovan, Pat
Riley or Stan Van Gundy would
gladly praise his work ethic.
"When I was there, I did ev-
erything they asked me to do,"
Walsh said. "I did everything I
could to help the team win and
also get better. No matter what
I did, things just weren't work-
ing out [with the RimRockers]. I
don't want to get into specifics,
but [Arkansas] wasn't one of the
best organizations I've ever been
around."

UF stuns No. 2 LSU in overtime


* LOWE SWISHED TWO
:REE THROWS WITH 3 SEC-
ONDS LEFT.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

Sarah Lowe sat silently at the
podium after the game, chew-
ing gum, blowing bluish-green
bubbles and staring into space,
maybe reflecting on what she
just did to send 2,603 fans into
a frenzy.
The UF senior guard stood at
the free throw line with 3 seconds
remaining in overtime against


No. 2 Louisiana State, shooting to
establish the legacy of her college
career at the O'Connell Center.
Corey Brewer, Taurean Green,
Al Horford and Joakim Noah
needed to get a better look.
Toting orange and blue pom-
poms, the four men's basketball
team members hustled down
behind the LSU basket next to the
UF band to watch Lowe swish
both free throws for the Gators'
first win against a top-four team
in school history.
The Gators (19-6, 7-5
Southeastern Conference) defeat-
ed the Tigers 79-78 in overtime
Thursday night, breaking LSU's

24-game SEC winning streak
and likely chiseling UF into the
NCAA Tournament bracket.
After LSU failed to get a shot
off in the final 3 seconds, the
Gators stormed midcourt in a

"I- know there was no doubt
in my mind that I was going
to [make] it," said Lowe, who
finished with.17 points. "I just
walked up there like it was just
shooting a free throw in prac-
tice."
Trailing 78-77, Lowe had the
ball in her hands after LSU guard
RaShonta LeBlanc missed two
free throws with 10 seconds re-
maining in overtime.
On senior night, Lowe drove
and was fouled by reigning
National Player of the Year
Seimone Augustus. She then
headed to the line after LSU
called a 30-second timeout.
"When I stepped up there, I
just told myself that I had to re-
lax," Lowe said. "I had to put my-
self in a different place and just
not even worry about the score,
not worry about anything."
Lowe, who sent the game into
the extra session by hitting a
jumper with 52 seconds remain-
ing, scored the final 6 points for
UF. After senior forward Dalila
Eshe hit a 3-point shot to give UF
its first lead of the game with 1:
56 remaining in overtime, Lowe
made 4 of 4 free throws and a
layup.
"If anything, it shows the frea-
kin' resilience of this basketball
team," Lowe said. "Our whole
career for [the seniors] has been a
roller coaster ride in general."
Eshe had the chance to give
the Gators a win in regulation.
With the game tied at 65, she got
the ball in the low post with less
than 10 seconds remaining and
backed up to the basket but could
not get a decent shot off.
"Coach came into our huddle
and said, 'This is exactly where
we were last year against
Tennessee,'" said Lowe, refer-
ring to UF's 91-82 overtime loss
against the Volunteers. "We had
the last shot, and last year it
didn't go our way.... We weren't
going to let that happen today."

Brewer has green


light for Arkansas


By DAN TREAT

Prior to Wednesday's win
at Vanderbilt, Corey Brewer
shot just 23.9 percent from
behind the 3-point line and
hadn't connected on more
than one per game since the
Providence game Dec. 6. .
But against the
Commodores, the UF for-
ward broke out, knocking
down 5 of 6 attempts from
beyond the arc as part of a
career-high 26-point perfor-
mance.
But Brewer's breakout
game probably wouldn't
have happened had UF coach
Billy Donovan not given him
the green light to fire away.
"The biggest thing I try
to do is keep the confidence
level really high," Donovan
said. "I think the one thing
that takes confidence away
from the players is when you
tell them, 'You're not allowed
to shoot. Your last four or five
games, you're not shooting
well, so I don't want you
shooting anymore.'"
On Saturday, Brewer
likely will have the privilege
to shoot freely again, as the
Gators (22-3,8-3 Southeastern
Conference) face Arkansas
(16-8, 5-6 SEC) on the road in
Fayetteville.
"I was just playing well,"
Brewer said. "Once your first
two shots go in, and once ev-
erything starts flowing, you
just feel like you can't miss."
But Donovan has stressed
to Brewer that he can contrib-
ute even on nights when he's
not hitting his shots.
"He needs to under-
stand he affected the game
[Wednesday] night in a lot
of other different ways other
than making five 3-point
shots," Donovan said. "And
that's the thing I've been try-


ing to get him to understand
over the last 3 to 4 games ...
there are other things you
can do at 6-foot-8 with your
athleticism."
While Brewer has been
steadily recovering since
spraining his ankle against
Tennessee on Jan. 21, he just
now feels that he's gotten the
explosion back into his game.
"I feel like it's getting
there," Brewer said. "It's
still not like I want it to be. I
would have dunked a couple
of them [Wednesday] night if
I had a chance."
Brewer will have his
hands full on the other end of
the floor with the Razorbacks'
Ronnie Brewer no relation
to UF's
version -
who leads
the league
averag-
ing 18.6
points per
game and
Donovan who was
named
All-SEC First Team in the
preseason.
"It's a great challenge,"
Brewer said. "He's a great
player. He's been talked about
all during the preseason."
UF is in the middle of a
stretch featuring four of its
final six games on the road,
and the travel schedule has
been grueling.
The team didn't arrive in
Gainesville from Nashville,
Term., until 2:15 a.m.
Thursday and is departing for
Fayetteville this afternoon.
"It sucks because you
have to wake up and go to
class the next morning," said
guard Taurean Green, who
had class at 9:35 a.m. "It's just
something you have to deal
with. We have to go.
"We can't miss class and
make the excuse that we got
back late."

Gators anticipate Miami rivalry after uDset loss


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

yjf the Gators needed any extra motivation
for their annual rivalry against Miami, they
just found it.
UF (3-1) learned to never take their oppo-
nents lightly, and they learned it the hard way
Wednesday when Mercer came into town and


U w


stunned the top-ranked Gators.
What was supposed to be a warm-up game
for the Gators' biggest non-conference series
of the year quickly became a major reality
check. But, as embarrassing as the loss might
have been for the Gators, it may prove to work
to their advantage.
"[The loss to Mercer] gets us more pre-
pared because we know we're not the No.


1 team in the country," junior catcher Brian
Jeroloman said. "We know we are not as good
as we think we are.
"I think we are going to go out there, be
a lot more polished and better players alto-
gether."
Last season, the UF players looked at the
Miami series as a must-win situation. After
being knocked out of the postseason for


Alligator
After the Gators' upset loss to Mercer on Wednesday, UF reliever barren O'Day said he didn't think the top-ranked Gators were the
No. 1 team in the country. O'Day and UF will try to earn back the top-spot in a three-game series at Miami this weekend.


three consecutive years by their in-state foes
the Gators had something to prove not tc
the Hurricanes or to the sports world, but tc
themselves.
But after, taking two out of three from
Miami in Gainesville, the Gators didn't meet
the Hurricanes in the postseason for the first
time since 2000.
And while UF played its way to a second-
place College World Series finish in Omaha,
Neb., the Hurricanes were watching the
Gators' run on TV.
"We had a good postseason," UF relief
pitcher Darren O'Day said. "We never even
thought of Miami."
Factor in the fact that Miami (6-3) is not
even ranked in the top 25, according to Baseball
America, and UF might have forgotten about
Miami and the intensity of the rivalry.
Then came Mercer.
The loss to the Bears may have reminded
the Gators just how tough the Hurricanes can
play ball.
Once again, UF will enter the series with
something to prove.
"Miami is a very tough team, and they're a
great rival," Jeroloman said. "You don't really
have to say much about a team like Miami. It's
a huge rivalry."
The Gators will also experience their first
road test of the season in Coral Gables.
SUF senior Bryan Ball (1-0, 0.00 ERA) will
take the mound to open the series Friday at
2 p.m., opposite Miami sophomore Carlos
Gutierrez (3-0,1.15 ERA).
Last season, a ninth-inning rally propelled
Miami to a 9-7 come-from-behind victory. The
Gators went on to win the next two games in
dramatic fashion, including a 2-1 victory in
game two that ended when Miami outfielder
John Jay dropped a routine fly ball in the 11th
inning.
O'Day said he expects similar results this
weekend.
"Three good games," he said. "There are
going to be three hard-fought games. Every
year there are three battles."

Former UF guard Walsh leaves NBDL team abruptly


By ANDREW ABRAMSON

When Billy Donovan and the
Gators travel to Arkansas this week-
end, don't expect a reunion with
Matt Walsh.
The former UF guard who spent
the last few months playing for the
Arkansas RimRockers of the NBA
Development League is no longer
with the team.
What exactly caused the split,
however, remains unclear.
Both Walsh and Arkansas gen-

eral manager Otis Birdsong agree
that Walsh left the team last Friday.
That's where the agreement ends.,
"I met with the owner, gen-
eral manger and the coach to get an-
swers to where they saw me fitting
in with the team and developing,"
Walsh said. "My concerns were get-

ting better and trying to get back to
the NBA.
"They wouldn't give me.the an-
swer, and I saw no light at the end of
the tunnel."
Walsh decided to forgo his final
season at UF and enter June's NBA
Draft. Though he wasn't drafted,

the Miami Heat signed him to a
two-year deal worth $1.2 million.
He was waived shortly after the
season began but
collected half the
money because
the first year of
the contract was
guaranteed.
Walsh said he
would continue
Walsh training and
might play in
Europe or try to sign a 10-day con-
tract in the NBA.
"We addressed and answered


every question Matt had," said
Birdsong, a four-time NBA All-Star
with the Kansas City Kings and
New Jersey Nets. "The problem
was that Matt wanted Coach [Andy]
Stoglin to promise he'd start him
and that he would be playing a
certain amount of minutes. I want
to play the players who deserve to
play."
Birdsong admitted that former
RimRockers coach Joe Harge, who
was fired last week, probably didn't
give Walsh a fair shot to play be-
cause Walsh arrived after training
camp. He averaged just 8.4 point in


21.2 minutes from 11 games with the
RimRockers. But Birdsong claimed
Stoglin said he would play Walsh
extended minutes last weekend and
run plays for him.
Birdsong said the RimRockers
flew to Fayetteville, N.C., last week-
end, but Walsh didn't show up at
the team van for practice. He said
Walsh did not return cell phone calls
and said an assistant coach even had
security open his hotel door to make
sure he wasn't in trouble. Instead,
Birdsong said, he was gone.
