* BOTH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES
SAID SG SHOULD BE MORE DIVERSE.

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Writer

At their first debate Thursday night,
Student Body presidential candidate Jared
Hernandez challenged his opponent, John
Boyles, to an additional debate Friday on
Turlington Plaza.
"I want to continue this discussion in an
open space," Hernandez said.
The Student Body presidential debate
Thursday night, hosted by the Hispanic
Student Association, lasted almost two hours
but was not long enough for Hernandez.
In order to get all the issues out to students,
debating between Boyles and Hernandez
should continue every day until the March
1 election, said Hernandez, the Unite Party
candidate.
Boyles, his Swamp Party rival, apologized
and said he could not debate Friday morning

due to an exam but would accept Hernandez's
challenge thereafter.
In their first meeting, however, both candi-
dates expressed a strong desire to see a more
diversified Student Government.
The overwhelming Greek involvement
in SG that far outweighs minority member-
ship is sending a
negative message
Election to the student body,
IPT Hernandez said.
"Two-thirds (of
SG) is Greek. Two
percent is Hispanic. What message does this
send?" Hernandez said.
Boyles agreed with Hernandez and hopes
to change the face of SG by focusing on re-
sults, not "promised positions and patron-
age" that hinder diversity in SG.
When HSA President Jessica Klahr .asked
the candidates about the most pressing issue
facing UF, Hernandez and Boyles disagreed.
Hernandez deemed the most pressing is-

Bones belong

The skull and bones of a local
man that were first found by a dog
were identified Thursday.
Investigators discovered the
bones and clothes of 50-year-old
Kevin Smetzer in a heavily wooded
area near 5007 SW 46th St. after a
Gainesville resident found a skull in
his yard Wednesday morning, said
Sgt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
"Detectives feel confident based
on interviews with neighbors,
canvassing that they did and along
with identification found, that the
remains are his," Faulk said.

After a morning run, Jared
Hernandez gets inside his '98 Ford
Mustang and drives downtown to
eat breakfast with his girlfriend of
three years, Nikki Fried.
"We try to catch up before
the rush of the day starts," says
Hernandez, the Unite Party Student
Body presidential candidate in next
week's Student Government elec-
tion.
Hernandez makes a phone call
in the lobby of the Alachua County
Criminal Courthouse, and within
minutes, Fried, a public defender,
appears with a smile across her face.
"I guessed right," Hemandez,
whispers. "She wanted a banana."
They talk about Bear, their 1-
year-old puppy, before sitting down

James. Hansen discovered the
skull when he went outside to feed
his mixed Labrador, Cujo.
Hansen said Cujo also dug up
another bone he thought was a
cow leg four days prior to finding
the skull.
Detectives later were able to de-
termine that the other bone was a
human leg bone.
"It scared the daylights out of
me," Hansen said. "When I called
911, the operator said, 'Whats your
emergency?' arid I said, I've got
a human skull in my front yard.' I
didn't think she believed me."

before giving him

paigning for about an hour at the

just in time for Hernandez to meet

his mom after paying for lunch.
"Brett is coming on Wednesday."

that while growing up, his twin sis-
ters Brett and Meghan were his best

Peace rally gets rained out
Iridescent bubbles glided
through Turlington Plaza in be-

In effort to promote peace,
Jonathan Siger, campus rabbi for
the Hillel Foundation at UF, held a
rally Thursday that aimed to con-
demn violence and extremism, for
whatever the cause.
"There is so much passion and
violence in the world," he said. "I
thought if people came together it
would be a nice thing."

some of the biggest groups on

a few people showed to celebrate
peace and community by blow-

One participant tried to light a
candle, but it kept blowing out
because of the wind and rain.
The rally was not a gathering
in response to something. Rather,
it was an alternative to extrem-
ism and violence a way to
celebrate diversity and coming
together, Siger said.
He is tired of the "you have
to be wrong, I have to be right"
game, he said. "I want to pro-
mote a higher tolerance for am-
biguity."
Siger said he would host an-
other rally after Spring Break.

Board discusses diversity


By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer

TALLAHASSEE The Board of Governors,
which oversees Florida's 11 public universities,
discussed two issues ranking high on UF's agenda
Thursday.
At its monthly meeting, the Board reviewed a
series of programs aimed to bring economically
disadvantaged students to the State University
System.
"Sometimes kids just need that spark to be lit,"
said Craig Fletcher, the coordinator of the College
Reach Out Program at Tallahassee Community
College.
A four-member panel consisting of CROP
teachers and coordinators emphasized CROP's
success and importance in Florida schools.-
Programs such as CROP, which aims to increase
black and Hispanic enrollment, are part of a state-
wide effort to boost the number of minorities in
state universities.
These programs are supported by UF
President Bernie Machen, who has implemented
initiatives for need-based financial aid, and Gov.
Jeb Bush, who created the Access and Diversity
Commission.
Two students reinforced CROP's success by
telling their own personal success stories thanks


to the program.
"I think this is a program that should go on
forever and ever," said Leston Green, one of the
program's students and a journalism senior at
Florida A & M University.
"This country is on the verge of facing
a substantial shortage of physicians."
Michael Whitcomb
AAMC's senior vice president
for medical education

The Board, meeting on the FAMU campus, de-
voted the latter half of the meeting to its policy for
new medical schools.
A lobbyist from the Association of American
Medical Colleges addressed the Board and aimed
to cut through what he called the "great deal of
complexity" regarding the medical school issue
by discussing the strategic expansion of medical
education.
"This country is on the verge of facing a sub-
stantial shortage of physicians," said lobbyist
Michael Whitcomb, AAMC's senior vice presi-
dent for medical education.
Both the University of Central Florida and
Florida International University have begun rais-
ing money to build medical schools, something
UF officials oppose.


SG budget woes over


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
lewis@alligator.org

Two weeks after an error-
riddled budget first reached the
Student Senate, the body passed
its revised version at an emer-
gency meeting Thursday.
The budget, which is funded
entirely by student money, allo-
cates $553,020 toward 61 Student
Government-funded organiza-
tions.
Thursday's meeting marked
the fifth time senators have
viewed the organizational bud-
gets. During the Feb. 14 Senate
meeting, when senators were
due to vote on the budgets for the
first time, numerous errors were
discovered in several of the or-
ganizational budgets and the
meeting ground to a halt.
An official from the SG Finance
Office took responsibility for the


majority of errors.
When the Senate held an
emergency meeting to present a
revised copy of the budgets last
Tuesday, independent Student
Body treasurer candidate Susan
Henriques discovered another
budgetary error.
It was remedied by the time
the Senate took
Student its first vote
government on the revised
budget, and
senators unanimously passed it
through a final vote at Thursday's
meeting.
Although some senators
argued their budget copies con-
tained the same error Henriques
had previously pointed out,
Senate President John Boyles said
they had simply received inaccu-
rate papers.
"The budget numbers are cor-
rect, so if yours is incorrect, please
just strike through it," he said.

DEBATE, from page 1

sue facing the UF campus to be moving into the Top
10 public colleges nationwide rankings. Because the
university is not living up to its potential, issues such
as poverty in the east side of Gainesville, as well
as student activism, are not being adequately ad-
dressed, Hernandez said.
"We should ask more of our leaders," Hernandez
said. "We should ask more of our Student Government,
and we should ask more of ourselves as Gators:"
Boyles said the declining rate of African American
enrollment at UF and the low number of female lead-
ers on campus showed that Student Government was
not reaching out to students enough.
"What matters is that every student feels that the
Swamp is their home," Boyles said.
The crowd, mostly Swamp supporters clad in their
party's blue T-shirts, cheered after Boyles' responses.
The Unite supporters, wearing their red T-shirts,
stomped and shouted for their candidate. About 90
people attended the debate in Reitz Union Room 282,
where the Student Senate usually meets.
When Boyles, the Senate president, asked Hernandez,
a student senator, why he did not present his claims on
SG diversity to Senate, the Unite candidate bristled.
"It's understandable you would say a pithy comment
rather than understanding what's actually going on,"
Hernandez said.

Student Body presidential candidate Jared Hernandez, treasurer candidate Lola Bovell, and vice presidential
candidate Brandon Siler (right to left) are running with the Unite Party in this year's election.

VP contender stresses SG politics, not football


UNITE, from page 1

From linebacker to VP?
After his morning exercises,
Brandon Siler arrives to the Reitz
Union North Lawn to campaign.
Many know the vice presidential
hopeful as a Gators linebacker and
captain of the football team, but on
Thursday, Siler is just another candi-
date wearing a red Unite T-shirt


and passing out fliers and stickers.
"I do play football yes, yes,
that's great," says the 6-foot-2-
inch, 239-pound criminology ma-
jor. "But why. do you think I can
be a great football player? Why
don't you think I can be a vice
president?"

Sen. Lola Bovell breezes into
La Casita, where she works as a


student assistant. As she walks
through the door, you can hear
the music playing and see Bovell
swaying her body.
Bovell, Unite's candidate for
Student Body treasurer, says her
dad taught her how to read mu-
sic when she was 3 years old. She
plays the clarinet and the piano.
"I love music," she says. "Music
is something important for me."

Investigators believe bones found in yard to be more than four months old

saw the eye sockets and teeth,"
Hansen said.
Faulk said the bones were found
above ground. He said investigators
are not sure how long the bones had
been in the woods but are sure it has
been more than four months.


Hansen said Smetzer was a soft-
spoken man who lived in the area
about eight years ago.
Throughout the years, Smetzer
would visit his former landlord,
with whom he remained close
friends.
Hansen said Smetzer's land-
lord found a suicide note last
June on his door but did not think


much of it because Smetzer had
shown suicidal tendencies for
years.
S"He seemed to be an extremely
intelligent man that kept to him-
self," said Hansen's daughter
Myranda Legler.
Legler said Smetzer was an
odd man and neighborhood kids
would antagonize him.


"We once popped his tires, and
he didn't even call our parents to
ask for the money," said Hansen's
niece Amelia. "He was a nice guy.
He even cried when he ran over
our puppy by accident."
Police contacted Smetzer's
brother, who lives outside of
Florida. Faulk said his brother did
not know Smetzer had died.


The remains were turned over
to Anthony Falsetti, a UF profes-
sor and director of the C.A. Pound
Human Identification Laboratory,
Faulk said.
"Professor Falsetti is going to
double-check if the remains are
Smetzer's," Faulk said. "We're
almost 100 percent sure the bones
belong to him."

Editorial
SG elections are usually pretty straightforward, but this
semester is different.
We don't know why, but we've noticed significantly less
enthusiasm for this election than most others. Halfhearted
party platforms were issued too late in the game, and
Turlington looks oddly bereft of party loyalists. -
We wonder if anybody really wants to win this one.
It almost makes us wish for last year's election season,
when Progress, Gator and Unite supporters in Turlington
frantically competed for our attention along with campus
preachers and the Iron Fist.
Oh well.
With all the time that we've saved from not having to
throw away stacks of party fliers, we've been able to put
together another edition of our very own...


Darts & Laurels
We begin by throwing out a way-to-do-your-own-thing
LAUREL to all of the independent candidates running in this
upcoming SG election. They have spurned the traditional
confines of party politics to promote their own ideals, and
we respect that.
We're not going to sugarcoat it; they've got their work cut
out for them.
Getting elected with a major party is tough enough.
Getting elected without the financial and social support that
parties offer may well be impossible.
But that's why we love them. They have chosen the road
less traveled.
And that makes all the difference.
We continue by offering a we-know-we've-had-our-dif-
ferences-but-good-work-anyway LAUREL to our friend
Joe Goldberg. This Tuesday, the UF University Curriculum
Committee agreed to extend drop/add to five days instead
of four in the coming semesters. Goldberg isn't actually on
the committee, but he was instrumental in bringing the issue
to the committee's attention.
"I learned about the policy because students, including
Joe Goldberg, alerted me to their concerns on this issue, and I
agreed with them," said UF Provost Janie Fouke.
But it seemed like Goldberg was avoiding taking credit for
the change. "She really kind of took it and ran with it... She
understood it was an important issue for students," he said.
This may actually be the first time in university history an
SG official hasn't tried to horn in on the good press.
We are officially shocked and awed.
And though it might pain us to say it, on this issue at least,
Goldberg has done a good job.
Next, we dispense an unmitigated we-know-your-moth-
er-taught-you-better-than-that DART to Jared Jacobson of
Gainesville for his involvement in the heartless theft of stereo
equipment from already deprived students.
On Feb. 2 and Feb. 14, more than 40 cars were burglarized
in Towne Parc, Regency Oaks and University Glades.
The apartment complexes are heavily student-occupied.
Police officers showed up at Jacobson's apartment try-
ing to get information about another suspect in the thefts.
Jacobson wasn't home, but his roommate let the police
inside. They discovered the stereo equipment inside the
apartment.
Apparently, Jacobson never learned the first rule of thiev-
ing: Don't keep stolen goods at home. Especially when your
roommate is trying to bust you.
On that note, we finish with a thanks-for-the-help
LAUREL to Jared Jacobson's roommate for, perhaps inadver-
tently, giving the police a lead on the burglary investigation.
We don't know what he was thinking when he invited the
police in, but we're glad he did.

Harvard president didn't deserve scorn


Anyone wondering whether political correctness
stifles academic discourse needs to look no further
than the case of Larry Summers.
In 2001, Summers was tapped to become president of
Harvard University.
His resignation announcement earlier this week sig-
naled the end of one of the most nauseating chapters of
intellectual dishonesty in recent memory.
Summers was often known more for his trademark
lack of tact than his significant personal and academic
accomplishments.
It was this straightforwardness that so often put the
Harvard president in hot water. But it also underscored
the hypocrisy of American academia. At Harvard, the
very people who professed to be defenders of free speech
and academic inquiry condemned Summers,for his out-
spokenness and controversial viewpoints.
For example, there was the matter of Corel West,
a professor of African American studies and religion.
Shortly after Summers took over at Harvard, he chided
West for focusing more on producing a rap CD than on
producing genuine academic research. Summers also
suggested that there might be some degree of grade in-
flation in West's classes. At that time, more than half of
all grades received from Harvard were A's.
West's response?
He angrily left Harvard for Princeton, apparently un-
able to stomach even a modest reproach.
So much for constructive criticism.
In January 2005, Summers once again found himself
in the hornets' nest. At an economics meeting, Summers
suggested that innate statistical differences between men
and women might account for a greater proportion of
men in the upper echelons of science and engineering.
Summers was roundly and immediately criticized for


his remarks, despite the fact that
there is some empirical evidence
to support his idea.
He was also wrongly attrib-
uted as saying that all men have
a naturally higher aptitude for
Tom Durrenberger science and engineering than all
Editorial Notebook women. Because of this, he was
letters@alligafor.org branded a bigot and a sexist by
his intellectual colleagues.
But some in the Harvard com-
munity rose to his defense. When the Harvard Crimson
asked whether Summers' remarks were out of line, psy-
chologist Steven Pinker was incredulous,
"Good grief," he said. "Shouldn't everything be with-
in the pale of legitimate academic discourse...? That's the
difference between a university and a madrassah."
Pinker went on to say that Summers' hypothesis could
have been a justifiable topic at a psychology conference.
In trying to defend political correctness, many in aca-
demia forgot that the truth, by its very nature, can never
be insulting. The point isn't that Larry Summers was
never wrong, but that, often, there was the possibility
that he was actually right.
Summers' troubled presidency at Harvard is a strik-
ing example of how the academic climate in the nation's
leading universities stifles discourse. Larry Summers'
curiosity, impertinence and willingness to broach contro-
versy represents everything that is right with academia.
It is a shame that he was so ruthlessly silenced by those
who disagreed with him, and we are all worse off for it.
But the lesson of the Summers presidency remains
clear: In modern academia, as in Soviet Russia, the nail
that sticks up gets hammered down.

Column

Protesting funerals a disturbing new trend for Kansas church


F ree speech can be a funny thing. It is one
of the most sacred principles our nation
is founded on, but more often than not,
it is utilized in disgusting ways. When this
happens, there is nothing that can be done,
as the Bill of Rights provides no guidelines for
speech in extremely poor taste.
One of the basest abusers of our national
right to free speech is Fred Phelps, a 76-year-
old preacher from Topeka, Kan. The leader
of the Westboro Baptist Church, Phelps has
focused his religious career around hate-
driven rhetoric against homosexuals. While
a Baptist preacher lambasting gays is far from
extraordinary, the lengths to which Phelps and
his congregation go would make the founding
fathers shake their heads.
The Westboro Baptist Church's primary
forums for protest are funerals. Throughout
the Midwest, wherever there is a prominent
mourning or death, Phelps and his congrega-
tion make their opinions known. The history
of this tasteless host includes the funerals of
Frederick Rogers and Coretta Scott King. The


group has also publicly criticized the victims of
the recent Sago Mine collapse in West Virginia.
What is Phelps' issue with these deceased in-
dividuals? That they in some way or another
supported homosexuality, if only by not join-
ing the congregation in their diatribes?
Protesting at the occasional prominent
figure's funeral or issuing statements follow-
ing any large-scale catastrophe in this nation
could be chalked up as publicity tactics for
this demented little group protesting Mr.
Rogers' funeral simply because they claim that:
"God hates fags" is inarguably ridiculous.
Regardless of the First Amendment, Fred
Phelps and his congregation have recently
crossed an inviolable line. They have begun
protesting at the funerals of soldiers who have
died in Iraq.
Not celebrities who have died of old age,
but young men and women who have met
their ends violently and tragically.
Carrying signs with cruel slogans such
as "Thank God for IEDs" and "Fag Army,"
Phelps' followers destroy what little closure


the family and friends
of our fallen soldiers
may have had. These
...' soldiers have done
S nothing less than
.. :f; make the ultimate
Scott Gilton sacrifice for our na-
Scott Strikes Back tion, only to come
home and have their
eers@alligaor.o funeral desecrated by
these lunatics.
Throwing insults
at funeral motorcades simply because the
deceased within were average, reasonable
Americans is very nearly the basest of human
indignities still legal in this nation. Not sur-
prisingly, 14 states throughout the region ter-
rorized by Phelps are attempting to put a stop
to his malice. Each state has either passed or is
reviewing legislation that bans protests within
a certain distance of active funerals.
Laws such as these seem to be constitu-
tionally invalid. The speech of Phelps and his
group could not even be deemed obscene un-


der current Supreme Court precedent.
What the Westboro Baptist Church does is
by no means acceptable. The behavior of the
organization infringes upon the decency of
Americans as a whole spraying politically
loaded speech over what should be a quiet,
private affair. It is times like these, when a very
small minority abuses its rights, that the same
rights become slowly curtailed for the sake of
society as a whole.
That members of any religious organiza-
tion would behave this way toward dead sol-
diers is disgusting. It seems that the members
of the Westboro Baptist Church have gotten so
caught up in their anti-homosexual fervor that
they have forgotten what the Bible promises
to individuals like themselves. When these
bigots age and die, there will be no protests.
Neither will there be the strumming of harps
or some ludicrous ray of light shining down
upon their corpses. If anything, it is likely that
a more incendiary experience awaits them.

ences senior. His column appears on Fridays.


Letters to :- ,':
Swamp only represents Greek interests in SG election
It seems that your editorial board has missed an inter-
esting phenomenon concerning the upcoming elections.
The Swamp Party failed to slate a single freshman or
sophomore candidate that is not a member of a Greek-letter
organization. Nine of the eleven candidates come from the
Interfraterity Council and Panhellenic Council alone.
Does Swamp not feel freshmen or sophomores with-
out Greek letters are good enough to be in Student
Government? Or maybe those non-Greek candidates just
don't have houses that are willing to cut deals on their be-
half. Don't worry upperclassmen, there's not much hope
for you either. Fifteen of the 22 upperclassmen candidates
are Greek-affiliated as well.
Meanwhile, Swamp's message is to represent the stu-
dents; perhaps that was one of the lines they didn't mean to
copy and paste from the other party's platform.
This is all just politics as usual, though. The Greeks in
power are protecting their legacy positions and hiding
behind the face of John Boyles, a man masquerading as the
face of the average student.
Poor Mr. Boyles, it seems like your secret is out.

Unite presidential candidate just a political opportunist
This Spring's SG election is about trust.
Jared Hernandez broke his promises to deliver parking
to the UF law school and true online voting to the students
of UF. Jared Hemandez has turned his back on virtually
every organization that he has been involved with, includ-
ing the Interfraternity Council, his law school mock trial
team and the Spanish American Law Student Association.
Jared's actions have proven that he will respectively bash,
abandon and abuse the funds of any group for his own
selfish means.
Each group has been burned by this political entrepre-
neur.
Don't let the students of this school be next.

UF administration doesn't care about parking woes
The recent discussions circulating among UF adminis-
tration regarding an across-the-board increase in parking
restrictions to 5:30 p.m., as well as discussion suggesting


the commuter lot become solely graduate/professional
parking, are endemic of the same cyclical issue: The ad-
ministration really doesn't care about the student opinion
on an issue that is universally frustrating, not just at UF but
on college campuses in general.
Of course, many of us have had to deal with the student-
directed unfriendliness or maybe just unfriendliness in
general of UF.Parking Services.
When you sell more than twice the number of decals
as spaces on campus, disaster is inevitable. However, the
problem is solvable. Instead of "strategic planning" involv-
ing new buildings and upgrading the Reitz Union, how
about following UCF's strategic plan and making parking
garages a priority?
Instead, our administrators would rather just increase
restrictions, an action surely to boost only resentment to-
ward themselves and alienating Parking Services from ever
being viewed positively by the student body.
I have faith that the Student Government executives
and senators will make this a priority fighting to give
students a stronger voice on the issue and refusing to be
shut out of the decision-making process.

Noah's status unclear for Alabama


* DONOVAN BLAMED UF'S
LACK OF EXPERIENCE FOR
CLOSE LOSSES.

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

His face resembled someone who
had just gone 15 rounds in a prizefight,
rather than 38 minutes in a college bas-


ketball game.
His face was bleeding, his lip was cut
and his tooth was lying on the floor in
front of him. UF power forward Joakim
Noah could handle no more. And it
remains to be seen if he will be able to
handle anymore in the near future.
Noah underwent surgery late
Wednesday night to stitch up his lip
and to fix the displaced tooth. He will
be questionable when the reeling No. 12
Gators travel to face Alabama (15-10, 8-

5 Southeastern Conference) on Sunday
afternoon.
"I don't know where he's at right
now," said UF coach Billy Donovan on
Thursday. "He had some surgery yester-
day. I have not yet seen him today.
"Everything went well in terms of
getting his tooth put back in place. I
think a lot is going to depend on how
the healing process goes. No one has
said to me he can or cannot play."
UF hasn't lost three straight games
since January 2002, when Georgia,
Arkansas and Kentucky handed the
Gators consecutive defeats.
All three of those losses came by 5
points or less, including one in overtime
- a sting the Gators felt again after their
4-point loss at Arkansas on Saturday fol-
lowed by their fall to No. 10 Tennessee
by 4 at home on Wednesday.
This season, UF (22-5,8-5 SEC) hasn't
lost a game by more than 6 points, and
four of its five defeats have come in the
losing seconds of games. Donovan has
blamed UF's lack of experience as the
reason why the Gators haven't been able
to get the job done in dutch situations.
"Based on what do we deserve to win
those games?" Donovan said. "Based on
what? Three, four sophomores and a
freshman? That doesn't give us a right."
He also said that sophomores
Taurean Green and Corey Brewer
couldn't be expected to handle the
pressures that come along with dose
ballgames, simply because they haven't
been in those specific situations before.
"There's not a magic formula that
says, all of a sudden, Taurean Green
has 30 experiences under his belt at the
point guard position with the score tied
with 25 seconds," Donovan said. "It's
happened to him two times in his entire
career. Why would anyone expect that
he's going to have that level of experi-
ence and know exactly what to do?
"Why would Corey Brewer, as a
sophomore? It's the first time he's ever
inbounded the ball with 20 seconds to
go against pressure his entire career,"
Donovan said. "How can I expect him
not to make a mistake?"
And with the conference and NCAA
tournaments rapidly approaching, the
question that remains to be answered is:
Will the Gators handle such a situation
differently the next time around?
"I don't know if they will," Donovan
said. "Like I said, we have to go through
this ... I'm not really concerned. For
me, it's about the growth and develop-
ment of our team and our kids getting
better."

LaPorta may


miss tourney
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer _-

Matt LaPorta is excited about the opportunity to
face his good friend, Missouri pitcher Max Scherzer,
when Scherzer takes the mound against the No. 1
Gators tonight.
"I talked to him two nights ago," LaPorta said.
"He was just telling me he was going to come at
me. He said, want to see if you can hit my fastball
- power vs. power and see who wins.'"
But the friends will have to wait to find out, as
LaPorta will likely not be in the lineup against the
Tigers. The UF slugger is listed as day-to-day with a
strained oblique, an abdomen muscle.
After experiencing some soreness last weekend
against Miami, he decided to play Wednesday night
against Florida A&M. Though LaPorta belted a
grand slam against the Rattlers, he was taken out of
the game after three innings.
"I took [batting practice], and I felt all right, and I
was like, T'llbe all right as long as I don't swing and
miss at one,"' LaPorta said. "Sure enough, I swung
and missed."
If LaPorta is unable to go, UF coach Pat McMahon
will replace him in the lineup with
sophomore Bryson Barber, junior
( to~. r Austin Pride or freshman Cody
Ra '0 ibal Neer, depending on matchups.
With or without LaPorta,
tonight's game against No. 12
Missouri (4-2) kicks off the Pepsi Baseball Classic
for the Gators, who are hosting the tournament at
McKethan Stadium through Sunday.
On Saturday, UF will face Ohio State before play-
ing Wake Forest (3-3) on Sunday.
The tournament will provide the Gatocr'with
preparation for the postseason, McMahon said.
"That, by design, is exactly our intent," he said.
"The intent for the tournament is kind of twofold.
It is also for our great fans to see three outstanding
programs and the University of Florida in a tourna-
ment environment."
Scherzer, who played with UF catcher Brian
Jeroloman, shortstop Adam Davis and LaPorta on
the U.S. Junior National Team, is considered one of
the top pitching prospects in the country by major
league scouts.
"He's a bulldog on the mound. He's a great
pitcher," said Jeroloman, who caught for Scherzer.
"The difference between him and other pitchers is
that he has the ability to throw the ball hard in the
strike zone. He can locate his stuff very well. And
that is why he is on the team because he can rear
back and throw 99 [mph] whenever he wants."
With rain in the forecast, the weather could have
a serious impact on the tournament. Should some
games be postponed, travel schedules could make it
difficult to fit in all of them.
Weather permitting, the Gators are also faced
with the challenge of playing three different teams
in three days.
S"We're just considering it like a regular week-
end," Jeroloman said. "We're playing it Friday-
Saturday-Sunday."

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

UF aims to recover against Vols


* THE GATORS HAVE LOST 12 CONSECUTIVE
GAMES TO NO. 5 TENNESSEE.

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

They were on top of the women's college basketball
world for all of 70 hours.
Now they're right back in the middle of the pack.
Eight days after the UF women's basketball team
pulled off the biggest win in school history, defeat-
ing then-No. 2 Louisiana State on Senior Night in the
O'Connell Center, the Gators again must prove them-
selves following a devastating loss.
UF (19-7, 7-6 Southeastern Conference) will travel
to play No. 5 Tennessee (24-3, 10-2 SEC) on Sunday at
a 3 p.m., for its final game of the regular season.
On Sunday, Auburn, a team that lost to LSU by 27
points and currently owns a 4-8 SEC record, defeated
the visiting Gators, 73-58.
UF learned from that loss and will take hard-earned
lessons into Knoxville.
"We can't take teams for granted, and we have to
fight hard for the whole 40 minutes," said guard Sha
Brooks, a Jackson, Tenn., native.
With a week to prepare, the Gators claim to be
ready for Tennessee's level of competition, but ending
a 12-game losing streak to the Volunteers will take a
near-perfect game.
"We have to play just as well as we played against
LSU," Brooks said. "We can't make a lot of mistakes.
We can't turn the ball over. We have to play very well
to beat Tennessee."
UF almost ended the losing skid last year, falling
to the Volunteers 91-82 in overtime at the O'Connell
Center.
The loss proved to be the highlight of the Gators'
season. The final few minutes of regulation in that
game were projected on a screen for fans at October's
Midnight Madness event, the Gators' season-opening
showcase.
%h*ile the Gators could not win the big game last
season, they have proved that they can this year. UF
defeated then-No. 18 Temple on the road and Florida
State at home during the nonconference season.
Capped by the LSU win, the Gators now have the
confidence that their best game can match or better
Tennessee's.
"It made us realize that no matter who we play, we
can win," Brooks said. "No matter what the team is,
whether it's LSU or Tennessee."


Against Auburn, UF realized that no matter which
team it plays, a loss is also possible.
"That focus, and I think that emotional high that
you get on, it's hard to change gears and get back and
get prepared for that next game, no matter who it is
that you play," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "It's my
hope that we've learned from that."


Sha Brooks handles the ball during UF's loss to Geor-
gia on Jan. 29. Brooks and the Gators will try to avoid
a similar fate against No. 5 Tennessee on Sunday.


Morrison leads


team into SECs


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

For 10-time All-America Mike Morrison, there
will be unfinished business to attend to at the
Southeastern Conference Indoor Track and Field
Championship this weekend.
Morrison, the reigning SEC-indoor high jump
champion, will look to defend his long jump title-as
well as pick up another-in the meet that begins
today and runs through Sunday at the O'Connell
Center.
More than 500 of the SEC's best athletes are ex-
pected to participate in the meet.
"I want to win both the high and the long [jumps]
and place in the 55-meters," Morrison said. "But basi-
cally, I want to do as well as I can
R-4 for the team. I've been plagued at
4. this meet before, but this year I've
Track & Field got it together, so I can win both
my events."
UF coach Mike Holloway
knows just how important Morrison's success could
be for the entire team.
"He's our inspirational leader," Holloway said.
"He posts big marks in the long and high jump, and
it gets our guys going. He wants to win. He's a com-
petitor. When he walks away from an event, he wants
to win it. That's what's great about Mike Morrison."
The UF women will look to rebound from some
heavy adversity this season. Injuries and a few early
defections from last year's team have made this sea-
son a tough one for the Gators, who are used to being
ranked among the top in the SEC.
"We're going to have to fight hard and have every-
one up to compete," UF women's coach Tom Jones
said. "Everyone's kind of healthy right now. But
unfortunately, you can't make up fitness, and that's
where we are behind."
But injuries or not, the Gators aren't looking to
make any excuses.
"I've had a couple of hip injuries this year," said
junior walk-on Candace Cabey. "I got treatment, and
I'm doing better. I don't have any injuries right now,
and I don't expect it to stop me at the meet."

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA Alligator Writer At their first debate Thursday night, Student Body presidential candidate Jared Hernandez challenged his opponent, John Boyles, to an additional debate Friday on Turlington Plaza. "I want to continue this discussion in an open space," Hernandez said. The Student Body presidential debate Thursday night, hosted by the Hispanic Student Association, lasted almost two hours but was not long enough for Hernandez. In order to get all the issues out to students, debating between Boyles and Hernandez should continue every day until the March 1 election, said Hernandez, the Unite Party candidate. Boyles, his Swamp Party rival, apologized and said he could not debate Friday morning due to an exam but would accept Hernandez's challenge thereafter. In their first meeting, however, both candidates expressed a strong desire to see a more diversified Student Government. The overwhelming Greek involvement in SG that far outweighs minority membership is sending a negative message I i X to the student body, U Hernandez said. "Two-thirds (of SG) is Greek. Two percent is Hispanic. What message does this send?" Hernandez said. Boyles agreed with Hernandez and hopes to change the face of SG by focusing on results, not "promised positions and patronage" that hinder diversity in SG. When HSA President Jessica Klahr .asked the candidates about the most pressing issue facing UF, Hernandez and Boyles disagreed. Hernandez deemed the most pressing isSEE DEBATE, PAGE 4Bones belong to local man By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ Alligator Writer srodriguez@alligator.org The skull and bones of a local man that were first found by a dog were identified Thursday Investigators discovered the bones and clothes of 50-year-old Kevin Smetzer in a heavily wooded area near 5007 SW 46th St. after a Gainesville resident found a skull in his yard Wednesday morning, said Sgt.

"We try to catch up before the rush of the day starts," says Hernandez, the Unite Party Student Body presidential candidate in next week's Student Government election. Hernandez makes a phone call in the lobby of the Alachua County Criminal Courthouse, and within minutes, Fried, a public defender, appears with a smile across her face. "I guessed right," Hernandez, whispers. "She wanted a banana." They talk about Bear, their 1year-old puppy, before sitting down in a coffee shop to discuss their plans for the day -campaigning for Hernandez and defending for tons of foul play or criminal activity. James Hansen discovered the skull when he went outside to feed his mixed Labrador, Cujo. Hansen said Cujo also dug up another bone he thought was a cow leg four days prior to finding the skull. Detectives later were able to determine that the other bone was a human leg bone. "It scared the daylights out of me," Hansen said. "When I called 911, the operator said, 'What's your emergency?' and I said, 'I've got a human skull in my front yard.' I didn't think she believed me." Hansen said the police officer who arrived at his house near Interstate 75 thought it was a prank call. "[The officer] said, 'Now we know you're not crazy' when he SEE SKULL, PAGE 5 Fried.

2, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24,2006 News Today LOCAL Last day to claim tickets to Howard Zinn speech at UF UF students will have their last chance to grab free tickets to historian Howard Zinn's speech today Zinn, a leftist historian and social activist, is most famous for his book "A People's History of the United States." He will speak at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday at 8 p.m. about the war in Iraq and the uses of history. The Civic Media Center, which is sponsoring Zinn's speech, recommends that students arrive early to pick up their tickets today at the Phillips Center, which will pass out 300 tickets at noon, said Peter Gruskin, a volunteer at the CMC. The tickets are available to the public, so no student ID is required to get tickets. Students should also arrive early to the speech Tuesday night to claim their seats. Doors open at 7 p.m. -STEPHANIE GARRY Peace rally gets rained out Iridescent bubbles glided through Turlington Plaza in between short and random rain showers. In effort to promote peace, Jonathan Siger, campus rabbi for the Hillel Foundation at UF, held a rally Thursday that aimed to condemn violence and extremism, for whatever the cause. "There is so much passion and violence in the world," he said. "I thought if people came together it would be a nice thing." According to a press release, some of the biggest groups on campus were to be involved -including the Pride Student Union, Islam on Campus, the Jewish Student Union, Black Student Association and Asian American FORECAST TODAY PARTLY CLOUDY 75/53 SATURDAY RAIN 75/50 Student Association -but oDly a few people showed to celebrate peace and community by blowing bubbles and bouncing balls. One participant tried to light a candle, but it kept blowing out because of the wind and rain. The rally was not a gathering in response to something. Rather, it was an alternative to extremism and violence -a way to celebrate diversity and coming together, Siger said. He is tired of the "you have to be wrong, I have to be right" game, he said. "I want to promote a higher tolerance for ambiguity" Siger said he would host another rally after Spring Break. -SHARILYN WISKUP Primitive Arts Festival to be held at Paynes Prairie .Sprinkled with Native American history and relics, Alachua County has long been a place for primitive artists to gather.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 ADMINISTRATION Board discusses diversity By LINDSEY FRANCO Alligator Writer TALLAHASSEE -The Board of Governors, which oversees Florida's 11 public universities, discussed two issues ranking high on UF's agenda Thursday. At its monthly meeting, the Board reviewed a series of programs aimed to bring economically disadvantaged students to the State University System. "Sometimes kids just need that spark to be lit," said Craig Fletcher, the coordinator of the College Reach Out Program at Tallahassee Community College. A four-member panel consisting of CROP teachers and coordinators emphasized CROP's success and importance in Florida schools: Programs such as CROP, which aims to increase black and Hispanic enrollment, are part of a statewide effort to boost the number of minorities in state universities. These programs are supported by UF President Bernie Machen, who has implemented initiatives for need-based financial aid, and Gov. Jeb Bush, who created the Access and Diversity Commission. Two students reinforced CROP's success by telling their own personal success stories thanks to the program. "I think this is a program that should go on forever and ever," said Leston Green, one of the program's students and a journalism senior at Florida A & M University. "This country is on the verge of facing a substantial shortage of physicians." Michael Whitcomb AAMC's senior vice president for medical education The Board, meeting on the FAMU campus, devoted the latter half of the meeting to its policy for new medical schools. A lobbyist from the Association of American Medical Colleges addressed the Board and aimed to cut through what he called the "great deal of complexity" regarding the medical school issue by discussing the strategic expansion of medical education. "This country is on the verge of facing a substantial shortage of physicians," said lobbyist Michael Whitcomb, AAMC's senior vice president for medical education. Both the University of Central Florida and Florida International University have begun raising money to build medical schools, something UF officials oppose. SG budget woes over By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writer llewisealligator.org Two weeks after an errorriddled budget first reached the Student Senate, the body passed its revised version at an emergency meeting Thursday. The budget, which is funded entirely by student money, allocates $553,020 toward 61 Student Government-funded organizations. Thursday's meeting marked the fifth time senators have viewed the organizational budgets. During the Feb. 14 Senate meeting, when senators were due to vote on the budgets for the first time, numerous errors were discovered in several of the organizational budgets -and the meeting ground to a halt. An official from the SG Finance Office took responsibility for the majority of errors. When the Senate held an emergency meeting to present a revised copy of the budgets last Tuesday, independent Student Body treasurer candidate Susan Henriques discovered another budgetary error. It was remedied by the time the Senate took Student its first vote GOV43inm nt on the revised budget, and senators unanimously passed it through a final vote at Thursday's meeting. Although some senators argued their budget copies contained the same error Henriques had previously pointed out, Senate President John Boyles said they had simply received inaccurate papers. "The budget numbers are correct, so if yours is incorrect, please just strike through it," he said. QQM FRI: Beat the Clock Live Music 8-1 OPM Serendipitous, Inc.

Because the university is not living up to its potential, issues such as poverty in the east side of Gainesville, as well as student activism, are not being adequately addressed, Hernandez said. "We should ask more of our leaders," Hernandez said. "We should ask more of our Student Government, and we should ask more of ourselves as Gators." Boyles said the declining rate of African American enrollment at UF and the low number of female leaders on campus showed that Student Government was not reaching out to students enough. "What matters is that every student feels that the Swamp is their home," Boyles said. The crowd, mostly Swamp supporters clad in their party's blue T-shirts, cheered after Boyles' responses. The Unite supporters, wearing their red T-shirts, stomped and shouted for their candidate. About 90 people attended the debate in Reitz Union Room 282, where the Student Senate usually meets. When Boyles, the Senate president, asked Hernandez, a student senator, why he did not present his claims on SG diversity to Senate, the Unite candidate bristled. "It's understandable you would say a pithy comment rather than understanding what's actually going on," Hernandez said.

Many know the vice presidential hopeful as a Gators linebacker and captain of the football team, but on Thursday, Siler is just another candidate -wearing a red Unite T-shirt and passing out fliers and stickers. "I do play football -yes, yes, that's great," says the 6-foot-2inch, 239-pound criminology major. "But why do you think I can be a great football player?

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Investigators believe bones found in yard to be more than four months old SKULL, from page I saw the eye sockets and teeth," Hansen said. Faulk said the bones were found above ground. He said investigators are not sure how long the bones had been in the woods but are sure it has been more than four months. Hansen said Smetzer was a softspoken man who lived in the area about eight years ago. Throughout the years, Smetzer would visit his former landlord, with whom he remained close friends. Hansen said Smetzer's landlord found a suicide note last June on his door but did not think much of it because Smetzer had shown suicidal tendencies for years. ."He seemed to be an extremely intelligent man that kept to himself," said Hansen's daughter Myranda Legler. Legler said Smetzer was an odd man and neighborhood kids would antagonize him. "We once popped his tires, and he didn't even call our parents to ask for the money," said Hansen's niece Amelia. "He was a nice guy. He even cried when he ran over our puppy by accident." Police contacted Smetzer's brother, who lives outside of Florida. Faulk said his brother did not know Smetzer had died. The remains were turned over to Anthony Falsetti, a UF professor and director of the C.A. Pound Human Identification Laboratory, Faulk said. "Professor Falsetti is going to double-check if the remains are Smetzer's," Faulk said. "We're almost 100 percent sure the bones belong to him."

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 Editorial SG elections are usually pretty straightforward, but this semester is different. We don't know why, but we've noticed significantly less enthusiasm for this election than most others. Halfhearted party platforms were issued too late in the game, and Turlington looks oddly bereft of party loyalists. We wonder if anybody really wants to win this one. It almost makes us wish for last year's election season, when Progress, Gator and Unite supporters in Turlington frantically competed for our attention along with campus preachers and the Iron Fist. Oh well. With all the time that we've saved from not having to throw away stacks of party fliers, we've been able to put together another edition of our very own. Darts & Laurels We begin by throwing out a way-to-do-your-own-thing LAUREL to all of the independent candidates running in this upcoming SG election. They have spurned the traditional confines of party politics to promote their own ideals, and we respect that. We're not going to sugarcoat it; they've got their work cut out for them. Getting elected with a major party is tough enough. Getting elected without the financial and social support that parties offer may well be impossible. But that's why we love them. They have chosen the road less traveled. And that makes all the difference. We continue by offering a we-know-we've-had-our-differences-but-good-work-anyway LAUREL to our friend Joe Goldberg. This Tuesday, the UF University Curriculum Committee agreed to extend drop/add to five days instead of four in the coming semesters. Goldberg isn't actually on the committee, but he was instrumental in bringing the issue to the committee's attention. "I learned about the policy because students, including Joe Goldberg, alerted me to their concerns on this issue, and I agreed with them," said UP Provost Janie Foule. But it seemed like Goldberg was avoiding taking credit for the change. "She really kind of took it and ran with it. She understood it was an important issue for students," he said. This may actually be the first time in university history an SG official hasn't tried to horn in on the good press. We are officially shocked and awed. And though it might pain us to say it, on this issue at least, Goldberg has done a good job. Next, we dispense an unmitigated we-know-your-mother-taught-you-better-than-that DART to Jared Jacobson of Gainesville for his involvement in the heartless theft of stereo equipment from already deprived students. On Feb. 2 and Feb. 14, more than 40 cars were burglarized in Towne Parc, Regency Oaks and University Glades. The apartment complexes are heavily student-occupied. Police officers showed up at Jacobson's apartment trying t6 get information about another suspect in the thefts. Jacobson wasn't home, but his roommate let the police inside. They discovered the stereo equipment inside the apartment. Apparently, Jacobson never learned the first rule of thieving: Don't keep stolen goods at home. Especially when your roommate is trying to bust you. On that note, we finish with a thanks-for-the-help LAUREL to Jared Jacobson's roommate for, perhaps inadvertently, giving the police a lead on the burglary investigation. We don't know what he was thinking when he invited the police in, but we're glad he did. the independent florida alliato Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Durrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

In 2001, Summers was tapped to become president of Harvard University. His resignation announcement earlier this week signaled the end of one of the most nauseating chapters of intellectual dishonesty in recent memory. Summers was often known more for his trademark lack of tact than his significant personal and academic accomplishments. It was this straightforwardness that so often put the Harvard president in hot water. But it also underscored the hypocrisy of American academia. At Harvard, the very people who professed to be defenders of free speech and academic inquiry condemned Summers, for his outspokenness and controversial viewpoints. For example, there was the matter of Cornel West, a professor of African American studies and religion. Shortly after Summers took over at Harvard, he chided West for focusing more on producing a rap CD than on producing genuine academic research. Summers also suggested that there might be some degree of grade inflation in West's classes. At that time, more than half of all grades received from Harvard were A's. West's response? He angrily left Harvard for Princeton, apparently unable to stomach even a modest reproach. So much for constructive criticism. In January 2005, Summers once again found himself in the hornets' nest. At an economics meeting, Summers suggested that innate statistical differences between men and women might account for a greater proportion of men in the upper echelons of science and engineering. Summers was roundly and immediately criticized for his remarks, despite the fact that there is some empirical evidence to support his idea. He was also wrongly attributed as saying that all men have a naturally higher aptitude for Tom Durrenberger science and engineering than all Editorial Notebook women. Because of this, he was letters@alligator.org branded a bigot and a sexist by his intellectual colleagues. But some in the Harvard community rose to his defense. When the Harvard Crimson asked whether Summers' remarks were out of line, psychologist Steven Pinker was incredulous. "Good grief," he said. "Shouldn't everything be within the pale of legitimate academic discourse.? That's the difference between a university and a madrassah." Pinker went onto say that Summers'hypothesis could have been a justifiable topic at a psychology conference. In trying to defend political correctness, many in academia forgot that the truth, by its very nature, can never be insulting. The point isn't that Larry Summers was never wrong, but that, often, there was the possibility that he was actually right. Summers' troubled presidency at Harvard is a striking example of how the academic climate in the nation's leading universities stifles discourse. Larry Summers' curiosity, impertinence and willingness to broach controversy represents everything that is right with academia. It is a shame that he was so ruthlessly silenced by those who disagreed with him, and we are all worse off for it. But the lesson of the Summers presidency remains clear: In modern academia, as in-Soviet Russia, the nail that sticks up gets hammered down.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 0 ALLIGATOR, 7 Column Protesting funerals a disturbing new trend for Kansas church Free speech can be a funny thing. It is one of the most sacred principles our nation is founded on, but more often than not, it is utilized in disgusting ways. When this happens, there is nothing that can be done, as the Bill of Rights provides no guidelines for speech in extremely poor taste. One of the basest abusers of our national right to free speech is Fred Phelps, a 76-yearold preacher from Topeka, Kan. The leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, Phelps has focused his religious career around hatedriven rhetoric against homosexuals. While a Baptist preacher lambasting gays is far from extraordinary, the lengths to which Phelps and his congregation go would make the founding fathers shake their heads. The Westboro Baptist Church's primary forums for protest are funerals. Throughout the Midwest, wherever there is a prominent mourning or death, Phelps and his congregation make their opinions known. The history of this tasteless host includes the funerals of Frederick Rogers and Coretta Scott King. The Letters to the Editor group has also publicly criticized the victims of the recent Sago Mine collapse in West Virginia. What is Phelps' issue with these deceased individuals? That they in some way or another supported homosexuality, if only by not joining the congregation in their diatribes? Protesting at the occasional prominent figure's funeral or issuing statements following any larige-scale catastrophe in this nation could be chalked up as publicity tactics for this demented little group -protesting Mr. Rogers' funeral simply because they claim that "God hates fags" is inarguably ridiculous. Regardless of the First Amendment, Fred Phelps and his congregation have recently crossed an inviolable line. They have begun protesting at the funerals of soldiers who have died in Iraq. Not celebrities who have died ofold age, but young men and women who have met their ends violently and tragically. Carrying signs with cruel slogans such as "Thank God for lEDs" and "Fag Army," Phelps' followers destroy what little closure Swamp only represents Greek interests in SG election It seems that your editorial board has missed an interesting phenomenon concerning the upcoming elections. The Swamp Party failed to slate a single freshman or sophomore candidate that is not a member of a Greek-letter organization. Nine of the eleven candidates come from the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council alone. Does Swamp not feel freshmen or sophomores without Greek letters are good enough -to be in Student Government? Or maybe those non-Greek candidates just don't have houses that are willing to cut deals on their behalf. Don't worry upperclassmen, there's not much hope for you either. Fifteen of the 22 upperclassmen candidates are Greek-affiliated as well. Meanwhile, Swamp's message is to represent the students; perhaps that was one of the lines they didn't mean to copy and paste from the other party's platform. This is all just politics as usual, though. The Greeks in power are protecting their legacy positions and hiding behind the face of John Boyles, a man masquerading as the face of the average student. Poor Mr. Boyles, it seems like your secret is out. Andrew Marcus, 4LS the family and friends of our fallen soldiers may have had. These soldiers have done nothing less than make the ultimate Scott Gilton sacrifice for our naScott Strikes Back tion, only to come letters@amgator.org home and have their funeral desecrated by these lunatics. Throwing insults at funeral motorcades simply because the deceased within were average, reasonable Americans is very nearly the basest of human indignities still legal in this nation. Not surprisingly, 14 states throughout the region terrorized by Phelps are attempting to put a stop to his malice. Each state has either passed or is reviewing legislation that bans protests within a certain distance of active funerals. Laws such as these seem to be constitutionally invalid. The speech of Phelps and his group could not even be deemed obscene unUnite presidential candidate just a political opportunist This Spring's SG election is about trust. Jared Hernandez broke his promises to deliver parking to the UF law school and true online voting to the students of UF. Jared Hernandez has turned his back on virtually every organization that he has been involved with, including the Interfraternity Council, his law school mock trial team and the Spanish American Law Student Association. Jared's actions have proven that he will respectively bash, abandon and abuse the funds of any group for his own selfish means. Each group has been burned by this political entrepreneur. Don't let the students of this school be next. Daniel Hobbs Former Progress Senate candidate 2BA ..u. UF administration doesn't care about parking woes The recent discussions circulating among UF administration regarding an across-the-board increase in parking restrictions to 5:30 p.m., as well as discussion suggesting der current Supreme Court precedent. What the Westboro Baptist Church does is by no means acceptable. The behavior of the organization infringes upon the decency of Americans as a whole -spraying politically loaded speech over what should be a quiet, private affair. It is times like these, when a very small minority abuses its rights, that the same rights become slowly curtailed for the sake of society as a whole. That members of any religious organization would behave this way toward dead soldiers is disgusting. It seems that the members of the Westboro Baptist Church have gotten so caught up in their anti-homosexual fervor that they have forgotten what the Bible promises to individuals like themselves. When these bigots age and die, there will be no protests. Neither will there be the strumming of harps or some ludicrous ray of light shining down upon their corpses. If anything, it is likely that a more incendiary experience awaits them. Scott Gilton is a decision and information sciences senior. His column appears on Fridays. the commuter lot become solely graduate/professional parking, are endemic of the same cyclical issue: The administration really doesn't care about the student opinion on an issue that is universally frustrating, not just at UF but on college campuses in general. Of course, many of us have had to deal with the studentdirected unfriendliness -or maybe just unfriendliness in general -of UF.Parking Services. When you sell more than twice the number of decals as spaces on campus, disaster is inevitable. However, the problem is solvable. Instead of "strategic planning" involving new buildings and upgrading the Reitz Union, how about following UCF's strategic plan and making parking garages a priority? Instead, our administrators would rather just increase restrictions, an action surely to boost only resentment toward themselves and alienating Parking Services from ever being viewed positively by the student body. I have faith that the Student Government executives and senators will make this a priority -fighting to give students a stronger voice on the issue and refusing to be shut out of the decision-making process.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Noah's status unc ear for Alabama N DONOVAN BLAMED UF'S LACK OF EXPERIENCE FOR CLOSE LOSSES. By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreat@alligator.org His face resembled someone who had just gone 15 rounds in a prizefight, rather than 38 minutes in a college basketball game. His face was bleeding, his lip was cut and his tooth was lying on the floor in front of him. UF power forward Joakim Noah could handle no more. And it remains to be seen if he will be able to handle anymore in the near future. Noah underwent surgery late Wednesday night to stitch up his lip and to fix the displaced tooth. He will be questionable when the reeling No. 12 Gators travel to face Alabama (15-10, 8Kristin Nichols / Alligator Staff UF's Corey Brewer loses control of the ball as Tennessee guard CJ. Watson pressures him during the Gators' loss to the Vols on Wednesdsay night. Men's basketball South Carolina 47 Georgia 48 Villanova (2) 74 Cincinnati N The UF softball, men's and women's golf and women's tennis teams will all be on the road this weekend. For complete coverage visit the alligatorSports Web site. 72 5 Southeastern Conference) on Sunday afternoon. "I don't know where he's at right now," said UF coach Billy Donovan on Thursday. "He had some surgery yesterday. I have not yet seen him today "Everything went well in terms of getting his tooth put back in place. I think a lot is going to depend on how the healing process goes. No one has said to me he can or cannot play." UF hasn't lost three straight games since January 2002, when Georgia, Arkansas and Kentucky handed the Gators consecutive defeats. All three of those losses came by 5 points or less, including one in overtime -a sting the Gators felt again after their 4-point loss at Arkansas on Saturday followed by their fall to No. 10 Tennessee by 4 at home on Wednesday. This season, UF (22-5, 8-5 SEC) hasn't lost a game by more than 6 points, and four of its five defeats have come in the closing.seconds of games. Donovan has blamed UF's lack of experience as the reason why the Gators haven't been able to get the job done in clutch situations. "Based on what do we deserve to-win those games?" Donovan said. "Based on what? Three, four sophomores and a freshman? That doesn't give us a right." He also said that sophomores Taurean Green and Corey Brewer couldn't be expected to handle the pressures that come along with close ballgames, simply because they haven't been in those specific situations before. "There's not a magic formula that says, all of a sudden, Taurean Green has 30 experiences under his belt at the point guard position with the score tied with 25 seconds," Donovan said. "It's happened to him two times in his entire career. Why would anyone expect that he's going to have that level of experience and know exactly what to do? "Why would Corey Brewer, as a sophomore? It's the first time he's ever inbounded the ball with 20 seconds to go against pressure his entire career," Donovan said. "How can I expect him not to make a mistake?" And with the conference and NCAA tournaments rapidly approaching, the question that remains to be answered is: Will the Gators handle such a situation differently the next time around? "I don't know if they will," Donovan said. "Like I said, we have to go through this .I'm ndt really concerned. For me, it's about the growth and development of our team and our kids getting better." 1993: The UF men's basketball team made the largest second-half comeback in school history, erasing an 18-point deficit to defeat South Carolina 80-73 on the road in Columbia. LaPorta may miss tourney By BRYAN JONES Alligator Writer Matt LaPorta is excited about the opportunity to face his good friend, Missouri pitcher Max Scherzer, when Scherzer takes the mound against the No. 1 Gators tonight. "I talked to him two nights ago," LaPorta said. "He was just telling me he was going to come at me. He said, 'I want to see if you can hit my fastball -power vs. power and see who wins."' But the friends will have to wait to find out, as LaPorta will likely not be in the lineup against the Tigers. The UF slugger is listed as day-to-day with a strained oblique, an abdomen muscle. After experiencing some soreness last weekend against Miami, he decided to play Wednesday night against Florida A&M. Though LaPorta belted a grand slam against the Rattlers, he was taken out of the game after three innings. "I took [batting practice], and I felt all right, and I was like, 'I'll be all right as long as I don't swing and miss at one,"' LaPorta said. "Sure enough, I swung and missed." If LaPorta is unable to go, UF coach Pat McMahon will replace him in the lineup with -. sophomore Bryson Barber, junior 21 Austin Pride or freshman Cody tga]l Neer, depending on matchups. With or without LaPorta, tonight's game against No. 12 Missouri (4-2) kicks off the Pepsi Baseball Classic for the Gators, who are hosting the tournament at McKethan Stadium through Sunday On Saturday, UF will face Ohio State before playing Wake Forest (3-3) on Sunday. The tournament will provide the Gatora with preparation for the postseason, McMahon said. "That, by design, is exactly our intent," he said. "The intent for the tournament is kind of twofold. It is also for our great fans to see three outstanding programs and the University of Florida in a toumament environment." Scherzer, who played with UF catcher Brian Jeroloman, shortstop Adam Davis and LaPorta on the U.S. Junior National Team, is considered one of the top pitching prospects in the country by major league scouts. "He's a bulldog on the mound. He's a great pitcher," said Jeroloman, who caught for Scherzer. "The difference between him and other pitchers is that he has the ability to throw the ball hard in the strike zone. He can locate his stuff very well. And that is why he is on the team -because he can rear back and throw 99 [mph] whenever he wants." With rain in the forecast, the weather could have a serious impact on the tournament. Should some games be postponed, travel schedules could make it difficult to fit in all of them. Weather permitting, the Gators are also faced with the challenge of playing three different teams in three days. "We're just considering it like a regular weekend," Jeroloman said. "We're playing it FridaySaturday-Sunday." SNBA: Sonics vs. Magic Sun Sports, 7 p.m. MNBA: Lakers vs. Clippers ESPN, 10:30 p.m.

16, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2006 WOEN'S BASKETBALL UFaims to recover against Vols E THE GATORS HAVE LOST 12 CONSECUTIVE GAMES TO NO. 5 TENNESSEE. By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org They were on top of the women's college basketball world for all of 70 hours. Now they're right back in the middle of the pack. Eoght days after the UF women's basketball team pulled off the biggest win in school history, defeating then-No. 2 Louisiana State on Senior Night in the O'Connell Center, the Gators again must prove themselves following a devastating loss. UF (19-7, 7-6 Southeastern Conference) will travel to play No. 5 Tennessee (24-3, 10-2 SEC) on Sunday at a 3 p.m., for its final game of the regular season. On Sunday, Auburn, a team that lost to LSU by 27 points and currently owns a 4-8 SEC record, defeated the visiting Gators, 73-58. UF learned from that loss and will take hard-earned lessons into Knoxville. "We can't take teams for granted, and we have to fight hard for the whole 40 minutes," said guard Sha Brooks, a Jackson, Tenn., native. With a week to prepare, the Gators claim to be ready for Tennessee's level of competition, but ending a 12-game losing streak to the Volunteers will take a near-perfect game. "We have to play just as well as we played against LSU," Brooks said. "We can't make a lot of mistakes. We can't turn the ball over. We have to play very well to beat Tennessee." UF almost ended the losing skid last year, falling to the Volunteers 91-82 in overtime at the O'Connell Center. The loss proved to be the highlight of the Gators' season. The final few minutes of regulation in that game were projected on a screen for fans at October's Midnight Madness event, the Gators' season-opening showcase. While the Gators could not win the big game last season, they have proved that they can this year. UF defeated then-No. 18 Temple on the road and Florida State at home during the nonconference season. Capped by the LSU win, the Gators now have the confidence that their best game can match or better Tennessee's. "It made us realize that no matter who we play, we can win," Brooks said. "No matter what the team is, whether it's LSU or Tennessee." Against Auburn, UF realized that no matter which team it plays, a loss is also possible. "That focus, and I think that emotional high that you get on, it's hard to change gears and get back and get prepared for that next game, no matter who it is that you play," UF coach Carolyn Peck said. "It's my hope that we've learned from that." Kim Klement/ Alligator Sha Brooks handles the ball during UF's loss to Georgia on Jan. 29. Brooks and the Gators will try to avoid a similar fate against No. 5 Tennessee on Sunday. Morrison leads team into SECs By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer For 10-time All-America Mike Morrison, there will be unfinished business to attend to at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship this weekend. Morrison, the reigning SEC-indoor high jump champion, will look to defend his long jump title-as well as pick up another-in the meet that begins today and runs through Sunday at the O'Connell Center. More than 500 of the SEC's best athletes are expected to participate in the meet. "I want to win both the high and the long [jumps] and place in the 55-meters," Morrison said. "But basically, I want to do as well as I can fg for the team. I've been plagued at this meet before, but this year I've TraCk & Field got it together, so I can win both my events." UF coach Mike Holloway knows just how important Morrison's success could be for the entire team. "He's our inspirational lead-er," Holloway said. "He posts big marks in the long and high jump, and it gets our guys going. He wants to win. He's a competitor. When he walks away from an event, he wants to win it. That's what's great about Mike Morrison." The UF women will look to rebound from some heavy adversity this season. Injuries and a few early defections from last year's team have made this season a tough one for the Gators, who are used to being ranked among the top in the SEC. "We're going to have to fight hard and have everyone up to compete," UF women's coach Tom Jones said. "Everyone's kind of healthy right now. But unfortunately, you can't make up fitness, and that's where we are behind." But injuries or not, the Gators aren't looking to make any excuses. "I've had a couple of hip injuries this year," said junior walk-on Candace Cabey. "I got treatment, and I'm doing better. I don't have any injuries right now, and I don't expect it to stop me at the meet."
