Greeks split on ei



endorsements .


* ABOUT 32 OF 44 SWAMP
CANDIDATES ARE GREEK.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

The house banners are fewer, but
the Greek support is just as strong.
Only three days before the
Student Government election, just a
handful of Greek organizations had
placed political support banners
outside their houses, but both of this
Spring's political parties have strong
ties to Greek chapters.
Unlike past SG elections, in
which a single party usually con-
tained an overwhelming majority of
Greek candidates, both the Swamp
and Unite parties' slates have nu-
merous Greek candidates this year.
Of the 44 Student Senate candi-
dates being fielded by the Swamp
Party, at least 32 are members of
Greek organizations.
The Unite Party, which is running
41 Senate candidates, has at least 15
Greek hopefuls on its ticket.
Student Senate President John
Boyles, who is running for Student
Body president with Swamp, said
the large quantity of Greek candi-


dates on his ticket simply reflects
the candidates' ample leadership
capacity.
Boyles is not a member of a
Greek organization.
He added that to his knowledge,
none of the Greek houses had come
forth with a public endorsement for
his party.
However, as of press time, at
least 12
Houses

banners.
Several others, including Sigma
Phi Epsilon and Delta Gamma, dis-
played Swamp banners last week
but have since taken them down.
"I don't think that affiliation with
a Greek organization makes anyone
any more or less qualified," Boyles
said. "[Our candidates] are the best
people."
But one former Swamp sup-
porter said he never had a voice in
selecting those people.
Student Sen. Ryan Nelson, who
interviewed about 200 candidates
for Swamp's senate slate, said he
was denied the chance to help make

SPECIAL REPORT

Multiple universities witness increase in spamming


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Public records laws may add to UF's
spam woes, but the university's dilemma
isn't unique.
State and federal laws require any public
university in Florida to release its students'
contact information sometimes including
e-mail addresses if requested.
About 80 percent of e-mail received at UF
is spam. That overwhelming majority is on
par with other major universities.
At the University of Georgia, about 75
percent of e-mail received is seen as un-
wanted, which spam blockers try to delete.
UGA administrators agree that Georgia's
open records law may contribute to the

spam count.
UGA Open Records Manager Bob Taylor
said the university gives out student and
faculty information on a compact disc
- purchasable by anyone for $100.
UF, on the other hand, tells anyone who
wants a comprehensive list to go to its online
directory.
Federal law says university students can
make their "directory information" in-
cluding name, phone number, address and
e-mail address private.
Taylor said he sometimes disagrees with
the accessibility of student information.
"Is it allowed under the law? Yes," Taylor
said of the CD. "Is it an abuse of the law?
Yes. For me, [the purpose of] an open re-
cords law is for accountability and not for
helping someone with his business... They


can print a gazillion labels."
"However," he added, "I do comply with
the law."
"I do get some static from folks,
especially faculty and staff. We're
not going to be difficult. We have
to allow access. We've tried to
streamline this. We just look at it
as not being adversarial."

In addition, all faculty e-mail addresses are
given on the CD. Like in Florida, faculty e-
mail correspondence is also considered public

Hernandez admits to arrest
Student Body presidential can-
didate Jared Hemandez, a Sigma
Phi Epsilon Fraternity member
who has publicly decried frater-
nity culture, admitted Friday that
he and other Sig Ep brothers were
arrested about five years ago.
In April 2001, Hernandez and
40 others were arrested, for tres-
passing at a limestone pit in the
Newberry area.
Thirty-seven of the 41 arrested
were fraternity members.
Hemandez revealed his ar-
rest in a Unite Party information
package presented to the Alligator
editorial board Friday.
"I was out with my friends at a
location we didn't know was pri-
vate property," Hemandez said.
He refused to explain the nature
of the event, and when asked if he
was taken to jail, Hemandez said,
"The charges were dropped."

Grundy is a coordinator of

which kicks off today The coordi-
nators are asking students today
to turn in their jeans that don't fit.
"What the jeans collection is
about is instead of trying to fit into
a pair of jeans that is too small for
your natural body's shape and
size, try to find jeans that you feel
comfortable in and that fit you,"
Grundy said.
She said students who donate
jeans that no longer fit them will
not have the urge to lose weight
to squeeze back into them. This
could prevent the development

lifestyles and habits. The target
population is college students,
who are at a high risk for eating
disorders.
Students can donate unwant-
ed jeans all week at the Reitz

Center, residence halls, sorority

Dr. Karin Kratina, a nutri-
tion coordinator for the Eating

"I don't find-eating disorders
as interesting as how diets create
problems and are promoted as

cause the very thing they are
reported to fix, and most people
will never know that. It's a great
secret."

Students


perform


for funds
By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

A variety of student organiza-
tions united in performance to
raise money for an Indian charity
Friday night.
The Hindu Students
Council held their sixth annual
Multicultural Charity Show at
the India Cultural and Education
Center.
The group raised money for
AIM for Seva, a charity that works
toward bridging the gap between
mainstream society and the rural
populations in Indian villages by
providing medical and education
facilities.
AIM stands for All India
Movement; Seva, in Sanskrit,
means "service," with connota-
tions of devotion and caring.
A $5 admission fee was charged
at the door, with additional dona-
tions requested as well.
Campus groups, such as
the Hip Hop Collective and
the Chinese American Student
Association, performed for about
250 attendees.
"Pretty much we just asked our
friends in different organizations,"
said Prasanna Durairaj, HSC vice
president.
Performances
Multicultural ranged from tra-
Affairs ditional Indian
and Chinese
dances to poetry, song and modem
dance.
The HSC has been working
since the beginning of the semester
on the event. HSC's goal has been
to increase its membership, which
has since doubled to 600 active
members.
The HSC is planning to host
AIM for Seva founder Swami
Dayananda Saraswati during its
Southeast Regional Conference,
which is on March 31 through
April 2.
Funds raised by the
Multicultural Charity Show will
also go toward Saraswati's visit
during the conference.
"He is the leading authority
in Hindu, and he really couldn't
be more perfect to speak to us,"
said HSC President Ashwini
Tankhiwale.
The exact amount raised by
the show was unavailable at press
time.
HSCs from Florida, Georgia
and Alabama universities meet
yearly. This will be the first time
the conference is being held at UF.
"It's just a weekend where we
can get together and learn about
Hinduism," Durairaj said. "Our
mission statement is to make
people aware of Hinduism."

Poker helps spay, neuter cats


* THE TEXAS HOLD'EM
GAME RAISED ABOUT $3,600.

By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some play poker for money;
others, for fame. But with the help
of a dedicated group of Gainesville
residents, a simple game of No-
Limit Texas Hold 'em can spark a
huge difference in the problem of
stray cats in Alachua County.
PokerForPets, a volunteer orga-
nization devoted to funding local
animal rescues, hosts a tourna-
ment of No-Limit Texas Hold 'em
that benefits different organiza-
tions each month.
"People come out to play in-our
tournaments for a love of animals
and for a love of poker," tourna-
ment director Iaon Cottrell said.
This month's tournament, held
Sunday at the UF Hillel, had 89
participants and raised about
$3,600 for Operation Catnip, a
non-profit group that aims to
control the problem of stray and
feral or wild cat populations
through sterilization instead of eu-
thanization.
The problem is a growing one,
said Julie Levy, a UF associate
professor of veterinary medicine
and the president of Gainesville's
Operation Catnip. There are about
43,000 pet cats in Alachua County
and about 36,000 stray and feral
cats that are often fed by humans.
"Each year, there are 36,000
stray and feral cats reproducing
in Alachua County," said Levy.
"We must find ways to increase
the number of surgeries we're
doing and therefore increase the
impact of our program on the com-
munity."
The organization relies on
Alachua County residents to bring
stray felines to a monthly clinic
where volunteer veterinarians
and vet technicians sterilize more
than 100 cats within hours. All
cats have the tips of their left ears
cropped, which identifies them as
sterilized.
The system, called trap-neuter-


Gainesville resident Tim Palmer deals a hand of No-Limit Texas Hold
'em during the PokerForPets tournament held at UF Hillel on Sunday.


return, is essential to addressing
the stray cat population without
euthanizing, Levy said.
"This way, felines can contin-
ue to live out their lives without
contributing to the problem," she
said.
Usually, unsterilized home-
less cats fall into two categories:
stray, which are friendly to hu-
mans, and feral, which are wild
and averse to human interaction
and contact, Levy said. Operation
Catnip sterilized over 2,700 of
these cats last year and aims to
raise that number to more than
3,000 this year.
The surgeries cost nothing to


the caretaker but cost the orga-
nization about $25 per cat, which
makes fundraisers like Sunday's
poker tournament crucial.
At the event, a $50 buy-in fee
entitled players to a seat in the
No-Limit Texas Hold 'em poker
tournament, $10,000 in tourna-
ment chips and free beer. A prize
pool valued at $1,479.96 awaited
the top tournament winners, who
also received automatic entry into
next month's tournament and the
chance to win the season's grand
prize a $10,000 seat at the 2006
U.S. Poker Championship at the
Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort
in Atlantic City.


Law school to get


a new courtroom

By LUANNE DIETZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Levin College of Law announced Wednesday a gift
of $2 million to help fund a new advocacy center for the law
school.
SThe donation from Pensacola attorney Fred Levin, for
whom the UF law school is named, will go toward the $5.2
million needed for a state-of-the-art courtroom and will give
students the most modem equipment to learn with.
"For the students that will be coming out in trial practice,
they will have the opportunity to work with things that they
will be working with in the real world," Levin said.
Dean Robert Jerry said the addition will provide students
with sophisticated facilities and services.
"Many modem courtrooms have many modem innova-
tions," Jerry said. "We want our
UF students to have practice with those
:: *-. ; .-... :: while they are here."
The two-and-a-half story addition
will be added onto Bruton-Geer Hall and will feature a grand
entry foyer and fully functional trial and appellate courtroom,
with a 120-seat gallery and a bench for seven judges.
The addition would be a great asset to the program, Jerry
said, noting UF's trial advocacy program is ranked 13 out of the
country's approximately 190 programs.
The law school hopes to be able to host on-site, live judicial
proceedings, Jerry said.
"Our students could watch the actual argument on site
without having to travel," he said. "That could be a very valu-
able training activity for our students."
But students will not be the only ones benefiting from the
center.
"The facility not only helps the students, but it will get top-
notch faculty to come in and teach as well," Levin said.
Construction of the new advocacy center is scheduled to
begin in May 2007 and should be completed in Fall 2008, Jerry
said. It is to be named in honor of Levin's son Martin H.,Levin,
who is also an alumnus of UF's law school.
On top of Levin's gift of $2 million, the state's matching
grants program will match every dollar given over $1 million.
With the addition of the advocacy center, there are hopes the
law school will receive a boost in national rankings.
"In order to have a great university, you have o have a
great law school," Levin said. "This is just another step in that
direction."

the final slate selections. Nelson is
now a supporter of Unite.
"It killed me," he said. "I
couldn't understand how someone
-who interviewed over half our
candidates didn't have a say in our
candidates."
Nelson said that whenhe asked
where Swamp leaders would go
to decide on a slate, he was told he
wasn't allowed to know.
Swamp spokesman Josh Weiss
said he was unaware if Nelson had
been prevented from attending the
meeting.
"As far as I know, I never heard
anyone say that to him," he said.
"He definitely did help interview a
lot of candidates."
Weiss said he was attending a
Senate meeting when Swamp's slate
was finalized, so he could not com-


ment on who was in attendance.
Nelson, a former president of Phi
Sigma Kappa Fraternity, said neither
John Boyles nor the Greek system is
controlling SG.
"After a long time in that system,
it begins to wear on your nerves," he
said. "The system everyone refers to,
in reality, isn't just Greek. It includes
the greater black community and a
lot of the cultural communities."
Nelson emphasized that al-
though he publicly supports Unite,
he did not leave Swamp because of
qualms with Boyles.
"I legitimately don't like painting
Swamp as these evil conspirators,"
he said. "It is not John I'm against."
Instead, Nelson said, he opposes
the "system" that promises SG posi-
tions before an election takes place.
"Thursday morning, I came out
and done a red (Unite) shirt," he
said. "Now, my brothers are wear-
ing Unite shirts with me."

Swamp Party Greek Support

Two wrongs

Presidential tickets look

to be a wash
n many past Student Government elections, there was a
single party that we felt we could wholeheartedly sup-
port. Candidates had clear differences on the direction
they wanted to take the university. Parties had distinct plat-
forms with real differences. The entire university seemed to
be wrapped up in a political fervor.
This time, our job wasn't so easy. The executive candi-
dates seem to be working off each other's talking points. It
can be difficult just to tell the parties apart.
The only contender for the SG executive branch that really
wowed us was Susan Henriques for treasurer. Running as an
independent, it's clear that Henriques' experience with bud-
geting and SG finance trumps anything that her opponents
could come up with.
Henriques has earned our full support and endorsement.
The rest of the ticket was more difficult to decide. But after
careful consideration, we have decided to throw our support
behind the Unite Party's senatorial candidates. Their plat-
form appears to be marginally more feasible than Swamp's,
though that's not saying much.
But as for the presidential and vice presidential races, we
endorse no one.
Because despite all of Unite's posturing about "the end of
politics as usual," we see a lot more of the same. As a student
senator and Unite presidential candidate, Jared Hernandez
saw his share of shady dealings. Over the summer, the for-
mer Interfraternity Council president opposed the institution
of true online voting, a measure he now enthusiastically sup-
ports. Last semester, Hernandez also used student funds to
pay for a private pig roast off campus, though he later admit-
ted that he was wrong to do so.
Hemandez's running mate, UF football linebacker
Brandon Siler, is a welcome addition to the ticket. We have
been concerned about potential time conflicts with football
during the Fall, but we now think he can handle it. And the
linebacker is surprisingly well spoken about what he wants
to do with the SG Cabinet like cutting positions to de-
crease its size.
Yet we have to admit that having Siler on the ticket looks a
bit like a publicity stunt. After all, Siler has little to no experi-
ence with SG, although this could be an asset when dealing
with the Cabinet.
Swamp has its own set of problems. On the face of it,
presidential candidate John Boyles looks like a great pick.
But Boyles has been in the game for a long time. And
while he isn't in a fraternity, he sits atop a largely Greek-
backed party all eleven of Swamp's undergraduate sena-
tors come from fraternities and sororities. Although Boyles
claims to want to change the climate within SG to be more
inclusive, it's uncertain whether he'll be able to do so once
in office.
Lydia Washiqgton, Swamp's vice presidential candidate,
boasts much more cabinet experience than her opponent
Brandon Siler, but other than that, we don't know much
about her. She also professed to want to roll back the Cabinet,
though that may prove difficult if she's already associated
with Cabinet leaders.
Both of the presidential tickets have serious flaws. Unite's
Jared Hernandez has a great deal of historical ties to special
interests. So does John Boyles. The vice presidential candi-
dates, Siler and Washington, are probably only of secondary
importance.
And we just can't shake the feeling that a vote for either
ticket is a vote for the status quo.
So for treasurer, vote for Susan Henriques. For senate, vote
for Unite. But for president and vice president, flip a coin.

SG needs to restore trust in leaders


orgive my cynicism, but having witnessed far
too many elections rife with political-debacles
and reneged-upon promises, my trust in student
candidates has been eroded with each cycle of fervor
and subsequent indifference. While I do not mean to
denigrate a candidate's word, what assurances besides
Enthusiastic promises can they give us the student
body that they will be any different from their cor-
rupt predecessors?
Each year brings another layer of similar politicians
making expansive promises that are totally unrealistic,
followed by nothing but unachieved dreams to the
detriment of the student body as a whole. The current
state of affairs has been so demoted as to render politi-
cians naturally dishonest, unscrupulous and self-serv-
ing. I hesitate to call anyone's intentions into question,
but I ask each of the Student Body presidential candi-
dates this sincere and dire question: How do you pro-
pose to restore faith in political leaders before becoming
elected? Is this even possible?
Perhaps my hope for a restoration of confidence is
too grandiose to'impose upon you, but that would seem
to make politics a lot like religion a system based
on faith. This might seem like an odd analogy, but if
unfulfilled promises are the norm, how do you expect
me to believe in you, someone who seems to be more
of the same?
Jared Hernandez has attempted to paint himself in
orange and blue, citing discontent with the current re-
gime of political officers. In fiery oratorical theatrics, he
promises to be more representative of the student body
to better serve our constituent interests. However, his
platform promises are eerily identical to those of John


Benjamin Boyles. This article isn't meant to
Abdulnour condemn or uplift such promises,
Speaking Out but merely to point out the fact that
every candidate in the past decade
has made such pledges verbatim.
The disheartening fact is that though Jared
Hernandez can give no concrete assurances as to his
ability to implement change, his opponent, John Boyles,
does not even acknowledge the problems present in our
current state of political affairs.
Boyles wishes instead to work within the system
through a process of slow and steady change. Such ef-
forts are doomed to failure, and their proposal is not
encouraging. It smacks of naivete at best and insincerity
at worst.
Radical reform is needed, but a prerequisite for that
is a revival of confidence in student politics and its abil-
ity to deliver change.,
I do not wish to hear more bombastic and unat-
tainable campaign promises or recitals of formulaic
resumes. Such delusional claims and previously held
offices do not impress me. Furthermore, I resent the
unabashedly shameless self-aggrandizement that char-
acterizes our prevailing student political atmosphere.
I am here instead to ask you for an honest, realistic
and heartfelt written response explaining what dif-
ferentiates you from our sordid political past. Only an
extremely persuasive response will carry any force, but
without such a response, student civic participation will
be forever condemned to its current exile from the realm
of significant discourse.
Benjamin Abdulnour is a philosophy and political science
senior.

Candidate story omits important facts
As a former journalism major, freelance
writer and current law student, I found
Alejandra Cancino's article on indepen-
dent candidates lacking in careful edito-
rial discretion.
The topic itself was rather frivolous be-
cause all candidates interviewed wanted
to be part of the Swamp Party.
Therefore, it is not as if the candidates
initially had any more bold, independent
plans than current members of the Swamp
party.
Furthermore, politics in law school dif-
fer from undergraduate school because
political parties play a much lesser role
when it comes to acquiring votes.
Luis Delgado, the Swamp candidate for
the law school seat, has put in an incred-
ible amount of time, money and care in
getting his message out to other law stu-
dents. He does not display the glossy fliers
described in the article.
He has homemade posters, and I dare
say he works just as hard as the other can-
didate. I feel it was extremely unfair and
very biased to needlessly publicize one
law school senate candidate and not the
other in such a close-knit community as
law school.

SG should subsidize student tickets
Recently, I attempted -to purchase
some tickets for a few upcoming shows
oh campus at the Phillips Center for
the Performing Arts and University
Auditorium.
I was informed that student tickets are
now limited seating, rather than open seat
choice, because SG is no longer subsidiz-
ing student tickets.
SG gives our money to all sorts of
things, but the arts always seems to fall by
the wayside.
I am sick of reading in the newspapers
that SG controls $12 million of our student
money, and yet they can't seem to manage
it worth a hoot.
SG needs to make a serious effort to
bring back open seating choice at these
venues.
Without these open seating options,
these venues remain solely for the people
of Gainesville but not necessarily UF stu-
dents.
The Phillips Center is a nonprofit or-
ganization that needs SG money to make
this type of seating available. I want my
SG to spend money on things that matter,
like the arts, and not on things that don't,
like free towels in the gyms bring your
own towel.
Furthermore, I do not recall ever seeing


this issue reported on in the Alligator.
Does no one care about the arts any-
more?

Boyles won't open up SG to students
Presidential candidate John Boyles
constantly talks about opening the doors
to Student Government if he's elected to
SG's highest office. He's said it's a prior-
ity for him and has placed it on his party's
platform.
Boyles has been Senate's highest of-
ficial for more than four months, and in
this time, SG has been as closed as it has
ever been. I had high hopes for his Senate
presidency, but Boyles has failed on every
count.
Senate Rules and Procedures (Section
IX, 2,g) demand that vacant Senate seats
be advertised in specific locations for a
specific period of time.
Boyles has failed to ensure that this oc-
Scurs, despite repeated demands for action.
Senate seats are announced only at Senate
meetings and on agendas hidden on the
third floor.
Normal students have no opportunity
to find out about opportunities to get in-


volved.
The Replacements and Agenda
Committee, which appoints new senators
to vacant seats, consistently plays the
political game to win the favor of Greek
houses for the upcoming election.
As a former member of the committee,
I watched Boyles cast votes that were very
clearly not in the best interest of students.
Replacement senators were appointed
who very clearly did not live in the dis-
tricts they were claiming to live in.
Students with proven leadership ability
and great ideas were turned away in favor
of mediocre, lackluster candidates who
had the support of influential students.
After John was elected Senate presi-
.dent, I celebrated with him and several
close friends.
I had high hopes for a term in which the
doors of SG would be thrown open and a
meritocracy would develop. I have only
been disappointed.
Months later, I now look back at that
night and realize that Thoreau was correct
in saying "Power corrupts."
Senate President Boyles has lusted after
the SG presidency and has sold his soul to
get it.
God help us all if he does.

Graphic novelists speak at comics conference


By KENT RUSSELL
and KEVIN MAHADEO
Avenue Writers

Scholars from across the world came to
Gainesville this weekend to discuss the liter-
ary importance of overlooked comic books
and children's books such as "The Cat in the
Hat" and "Calvin and Hobbes."
The three-day-long fourth annual UF
Conference on Comics addressed the issue
of childhood and comics giving validation
of comics and animation as a concrete form of
literature.
Molly Bang, an award-winning author of
children's books, kicked off the event with her
hour-long keynote, "Exploring Comics," to an
audience of about 50 at the Alachua County
District Library Headquarters on Thursday. "
"We use comics to show life, death and life
again," Bang said.
Bang provided an overview of comics as a

Students decide fate of SG Internet voting this week


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

After years of controversy, stu-
dents not Student Government
officials will finally decide the
future of Internet voting during this
week's SG election.
Students will vote Tuesday and
Wednesday on an initiative that will
include Intemet voting as an option
for the Fall SG election.
Internet voting will allow stu-
dents to vote from any computer
connected to the Intemet by using
their GatorLink usemame and
password.
"I am very excited," said Susan
Henriques, independent candidate
for Student Body treasurer, who,
wrote the initiative and worked to
put it on the ballot. "I feel that it is
going to pass."
Initiatives, if approved, become
SG law.
A year ago, the Impact and
Progress parties tried to put a simi-
lar initiative on the ballot, but the
SG Supreme Court blocked them
because the initiative was improp-


early written.
Last Summer, a temporary com-
mittee researched whether Internet
or intranet voting voting from
designated computers on campus
- would be more secure.
The security of Internet voting
has been an issue for about five
years. In recent years, various SG
commit-
.tees have
."-: been cre-
Sated to
research
the feasi-
bility of Intemet voting.
The Summer committee recom-
mended using intranet voting and.
deemed Intemet voting insecure be-
cause, in the committee's opinion, it
could be more susceptible to fraud.
After the committee's findings,
Henriques, then a student sena-
tor, wrote an amendment to allow
Intemet voting, but the Student
Senate blocked it.
As a result of the committee's
findings, during the Fall election
intranet voting debuted with wide-
spread glitches, including lack of
available computers and students


voting for incorrect candidates.
However, the voter turnout dur-
ing that election increased by about
2,000 voters.
"[Intranet voting] was a step in
the right direction," Henriques said.
"It was helpful but not what the
students want."
Under the current system, the SG
supervisor of elections can select one
of three ways for students to cast a
ballot- paper ballots, electronic vot-
ing and intranet voting none of
which allow students to vote from
home.
Supervisor of Elections Erika
Kane said she would be happy to
have the option to use Internet vot-
ing, but she would not use it if she
were re-nominated to hold her posi-
tion again in the Fall.
"[Intemet voting] takes away
from the security of the polling loca-
tions where you are by yourself,"
she said.
Kane said in her opinion, Internet
voting was not secure enough.
"Yeah, you are not allowed to
(share your GatorLink usemame
and password), but people do," she
said.


However, Henriques said the
initiative also allows the supervisor
of elections to chose one polling
location on campus where students
can cast their votes.
Adam Roberts, Unite Party
leader, and Amanda Kane, the Unite
spokeswoman, both helped write
the Internet voting initiative.
"This is an issue important for
the students," Roberts said. "And it
was brought straight to them."
Although Unite is advocating
online voting in its platform, Roberts

said the initiative is nonpartisan.
Henriques said she appreciates

to hear about it.
"As long as [the initiative] passes,
I don't care who endorses it as long
as the students get to vote and de-

incorporates childhood characters into a
modem-day setting. The comic serves as an
example of a work that blends childhood ele-
ments with adult themes.
"It's incredibly disappointing," conference
coordinator Laurie Taylor said of his absence.
"'Fables' is huge with the uber-nerdy comic
crowd and with non-comic readers."
Several panels at the .Headquarters
Library spanned Saturday, the third and final
day of the conference.
The main event Saturday came from
Nate Powell, who gave a live performance
of scenes from his work. It was the most
entertaining performance of the conference,
coordinator Cathlena Martin said.
"For one scene, he laid on the table curled
up with a pillow on his side," Martin said. "It
was hilarious."

Gators struggle at plate in shutout loss to Wake


* NO. 1 UF DROPPED TWO
DURING A THREE-GAME
TOURNAMENT AT HOME.

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

The Gators' bats, their pre-
season strength, their high-pow-
ered weapons that drove in 40 runs
in three games during opening
weekend, all went AWOL Sunday.
The No. 1, but not for long,
UF baseball team (8-3) fell to un-
ranked Wake Forest 4-0 and was
outhit almost three to one in its
third and final game of the 2006
Pepsi Baseball Classic.
The tournament was an over-
all disappointment for the host
Gators, as they were hammered
14-5 by Missouri on Friday before
their loss to the Demon Deacons.
UF defeated Ohio State 10-3 on
Saturday to prevent its first three-
game losing skid since May.
"Our approach [from the plate]
just hasn't been what it needs to
be," junior shortstop Adam Davis
said. "We need to just do the little
thingsright. ... We have some guys
who are trying to do too much."
Missouri's All-American ace
Max Scherzer surprised no one in
frustrating UF at the plate Friday,
but a complete-game shutout by
Wake Forest's Charlie Mellies was .
a bit more unexpected.
"I think [Mellies] pitched ex-
tremely well, but we've got to
swing the bats better," UF coach
Pat McMahon said. "The work ef-
fort is there, but we've got to put


the ball in play."
On Sunday, the Gators simply
struggled to build momentum at
the plate.
Brian LeClerc singled in the
seventh inning to end a 0-for-9 UF
drought from the plate.
The crowd awoke, the "charge"
chant blasted from the loudspeak-
ers and Gavin Dickey promptly hit
into a double play.
In the eighth, the Gators placed
runners on first and second after


a fielding blooper that saw the
Demon Deacons' shortstop and
second baseman attempt to simul-
taneously tag UF's Austin Pride at
second.
Again, UF came up empty as
Chris Petrie struck out and Pride
was caught attempting to reach
third base.
And Sunday wasn't an anom-
aly. After starting off with a .333
tearfi batting average in opening-
weekend play against Cincinnati,


the Gators have slumped by a
hundred points down to .233 in
the following games.
Power from the plate-has also
waned sharply, with UF picking
up more home runs in its first three
games of the season than in the last
eight combined.
"[Struggling at the plate] is
really frustrating, but it gives the
guys a reason to come back out the
next day," Davis said. "It makes
you want to gain the respect back

Senior Darren O'Day pitches against Wake Forest during the Gators' loss on Sunday. O'Day was one of
five UF pitchers to take the mound against the Demon Deacons.


that we've earned.
"It encourages us to get back
out here and get a win the next
day."
Reigning NCAA home-run
leader Matt LaPorta's absence
from the lineup due to an injured
rib cage seems an obvious explana-
tion for the Gators' offensive woes,
but Davis isn't buying it.
"Obviously it's hard ... but
that shouldn't be a factor," he
said. "When a guy comes out of
the lineup, that's a guy on the
bench's chance to come up and do
his thing."
McMahon said LaPorta was
still day-to-day and would not
speculate on his possible return for
Tuesday night's showdown with
visiting Florida State.

PITCHER'S MOUND MERRY-
GO-ROUND: The Gators fielded
five pitches Sunday to Wake
Forest's one.
Freshman J.K. LaCoste made
his third start of the season but
was relieved by sophomore Josh
Edmondson in the third after giv-
ing up a pair of runs.
Sophomore Tommy Wynn
started the seventh and was quick-
ly replaced by junior lefty David
Hurst, who in turn was pulled in
favor of senior Darren O'Day after
only one batter.
McMahon said the Gators need
to find a third pitcher to contribute
more innings.
Besides top starters Bryan Ball
and Bryan Augenstein, UF has not
received more than nine outs from
any starter.


UF rolls to victory


at San Juan tourney


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Writer

The UF women's golf team
won the Lady Puerto Rico Classic
on Sunday with a team score of
885.
The No. 22 Gators managed to
maintain their first-place stand-
ing for the second day in a row,
despite only holding a one-stroke
lead in front of No. 3 Purdue and
No. 9 Arkansas heading into the
final round.
"It was a good match for us,"
UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton said.
"Our putts were rolling in, shots
were being made where they
needed to be and the girls hung
in there and fought hard to the
end."
To make the win even sweeter,
five of the Gators' six golfers
placed among the top-25 indi-
vidual scores.
Sophomore Whitney Myers,
who placed second to nab her
first top-10 of the season, led the
team with her best three-round
score of the season at an even-par
216.


Sophomore Sandra Gal
achieved her best finish of the
season by tying for sixth place
with a score of 221 (5 over).
Redshirt freshman Ornella
Jouven, who competed as an in-
dividual, and freshman- Brittany
Nelson carded identical 224s (8
over) to tie for 18th place.
Freshman
M a 11 o r y
Women's Blackwelder fin-
Golf ished the tourna-
ment with a 10-
over-par 226.
Sophomore Tiffany Chudy
trailed Blackwelder by one stroke
at 227.
"I'm so proud of the effort
this team put in over the week-
end," Briles-Hinton said. "They
really grew a lot throughout this
tournament. They got some qual-
ity experience and went head-to-
head with some of the top teams
in the nation."
The Gators will try to utilize
that experience when they com-
pete at the University Golf Course
at the Lady Gator Invitational be-
ginning March 11.


Women suffer season's first loss


STAFF REPORT

At times this season, the No. 2 UF women's
tennis team has looked unstoppable.
Sunday was not one of those times.
For the first time this season, the Gators (6-1)
lost, falling to No. 10 North Carolina (12-2) 4-3
at the Cone-Kenfield Indoor Tennis Center in
Chapel Hill, N.C.
It was just the ninth loss in five seasons for
UF coach Roland Thomqvist (106-9), a North
Carolina alumnus and former Tarheels coach
from 1999-2001.
SNorth Carolina defeated its highest-ranked
opponent in school history with the win.
The near-freezing temperatures forced the
matches inside, where the Gators are not as ac-
customed to playing.
The clinching match for the Tarheels came
against UF sophomore Diana Srebrovic,
the reigning ITA National Indoor Singles
Champion.
Srebrovic was bumped to No. 2 in the lineup
partly because of recent inconsistent play and
partly due to the dominating play of teammate
Alexis Gordon.
Still, Srebrovic's (7-6 (5), 7-6 (5)) loss was
about as close as a straight-set match can be.
North Carolina's Caitlin Collins forced a
first-set tiebreaker against Srebrovic.
Knotted at 3-3 in the tiebreaker, Collins got


a crucial mini-break and served her way to a
7-5 win.
The second set mirrored
the first.
After Srebrovic went up
5-4, Collins again forced a
tiebreaker.
Srebrovic led 5-3 in the
Tiebreaker, but Collins battled
v. back to take the 7-5 tiebreaker
Gordon and to the match.
Gordon continued her
strong play, winning her No. 1 singles match in
straight sets (6-3, 6-3) against North Carolina's
Jenna Long.
UF sophomore Lolita Frangulyan and senior
Boglarka Berecz lost their singles matches in
straight sets, while sophomore Whitney Benik
and junior Nina Suvak both fought back to win
their respective singles matches in three sets.
The Gators made strides in doubles last
week but returned to their previously shaky
play on Sunday.
Benik and Gordon never could get in
rhythm, falling 8-4 in No. 1 doubles.
Freshman Keri Robison and Suvak lost their
No. 3 doubles match 8-5 to clinch the doubles
point for the Tar Heels.
Only Srebrovic and Frangulyan were able to
salvage a doubles win for the Gators, winning
their match 8-6.










_ick busts out of slump


I THE UF JUNIOR SET A SCHOOL
RECORD WITH SEVEN RBI.

STAFF REPORT

If Melissa Zick was in a slump, no-
ady would have known it from her
performance this weekend.
Zick set a schdol and NFCA Leadoff
classic record with seven RBI in an 11-
), nine-inning win against Illinois on
friday afternoon.
Before that, the UF junior first base-
tan, who was second on the team in
batting average and RBI last year, was
hitting just over .250 and ranked fifth on
te team in RBI.
Leading off the bottom of the seventh
ining, UF senior catcher Kristen Butler
it her team-leading eighth home run to
ring the Gators within one. Zick then
ngled for her fourt--hit. She would
iter steal second and then take third off
groundout by junior Lauren Roussell.
inior Lacy Howard then drilled the
ame-tying hit down the left field line to
e the game.
After a scoreless eighth inning, Illinois
managed to scrape a run in the top of the
inth. To start off the bottom of the ninth,


UF freshman Kim Waleszonia took sec-
ond base due to international tie-breaker
rules. After senior Lindsey Cameron
reached on a base hit to advance
Waleszonia, a Butler sacrifice fly scored
her, tying the game at 10-10. Illinois then
walked Zick, and UF's hopes rested on
Roussell. She responded with a hit to
right field, scoring Cameron for the win-
Sning run.
S Later, UF extended
S its four-game win-
ning streak, defeating
Florida Atlantic 9-1.
While the Gators
had struggled to score
< ~runs in early innings
Zick thus far, that was not
an issue this game.
UF plated seven runs in the first inning
alone. Four of which came from the im-
proving bat of freshman third baseman
Brooke Johnson, who hit her first career
home run in style with a grand slam.
Those runs would be all UF pitcher
Stacey Stevens would need. The junior
threw a complete game while not giving
up an earned run with nine strikeouts.
But the Gators could not try to contin-
ue their winning streak, as the remaining
games were cancelled due to rain.

Morrison puts on


show at SEC meet


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

When UF junior Mike
Morrison was asked to describe
his previous experiences at the
Southeastern Conference Indoor
Championships, he simply re-
sponded, "plagued."
But when asked to describe
his experience at this weekend's
conference meet, his. word of
choice was "focused."
The 10-time All-American
showed he had good reason to
feel that way.
During the weekend,
Morrison defended.his SEC title
in the high jump and earned a
championship
in the long
~' jump, a title
Track & Field that eluded
him in last
year's SEC
meet.
He became the first athlete
in 36 years to win both jump
events at the meet, as the No.
12 UF men's team took third
at the O'Connell Center. No. 1
Arkansas won the meet.
- Morrison, who finished the
meet with 22 points, also took
home the SEC Commissioner's
Trophy, awarded to the athlete
with the most points in the
meet.
"I knew I was going to come
in her*and win my two events,"
Morrison said. "Hopefully, I can
come back next year and try and
defend both titles."
Morrison set a personal re-
cord in the high jump with a


jump of 7 feet, 5 14 inches and
helped the 400-meter relay team
finish second.
The only event in which
Morrison competed that he
didn't excel was the 55-me-
ter dash, where he failed
to qualify for the finals.
In the long jump, he hit a mark
of 25 feet, 9 /4 inches, one-half
inch better than the second-
place finisher.
"He's a junior, and he's been-
through a few of these now,"
UF field coach Dan Pfaff said.
"He executed very well today.
When you come in and win the
Commissioner's Trophy, it is a
pretty special accomplishment."
The men's team finished with
100 points, including eight hard-
earned points from senior Shane
Stroup, who nearly won the mile
run in an exciting final lap dash.
"I was very pleased with our
ability to show up and compete
in a big meet," UF men's coach
Mike Holloway said. "I was
very pleased Mike could win the
Commissioner's Trophy. Mike's
an electric performer."
Senior All-American Rachel
Longfors, who finished second
in the weight throw, led the UF
women's team. The distance
medley team added 8 points
after finishing second.
"Given the circumstances, I'd
say our kids competed well," UF
women's coach Tom Jones said.
"We had a great performance by
our weight throwers, and our
distance medley relay team ran
well.
"There were just too many

'Bama loss marks


UF's third straight


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Capping
he Southeastern Conference's
hrowback week on Sunday, the
3ators might want to run their
:irca-1970 jerseys through a
;hredder and bur the remains.
After suf-
fering losses to
Arkansas. last
weekend and
Tennessee on
Wednesday,, UF
left Alabama
with its first
three-game
osing streak since 2003, and the
;ators are 5-6 since starting the
;eason on a school-record 17-
Xame winning streak.
Alabama (16-10, 9-5 SEC) had
ive scorers in double figures
md never trailed while keeping
\To. 12 UF (22-6, 8-6 SEC) at bay
throughh a series of second-half
umns to come out with an 82-77
Victory at home.
"Teams are just playing us dif-
ferent," sophomore Corey Brewer
;aid. "They're throwing different
things at us. We've just got to
adjust. It's getting late. It's get-


ting real late, so we've got to learn
quick."
UF remains tied with Kentucky
for second place in the SEC East,
and the season's final two games
against the Wildcats and Georgia
will determine whether the
Gators will be able to secure a
first-round bye in the conference
tournament.
The Gators found themselves
trailing from the opening tip, fall-
ing behind by 11 at three separate
occasions during the first half and
as many as 12 in the second.
UF closed the gap to 3 points
on three different occasions dur-
ing the second half and trailed by
4 at 75-71 with 1 minute, 17 sec-
onds remaining after guard Lee
Humphrey, who started for the
first time since Jan. 28, connected
his fifth 3-pointer of the half.
But the Gators wouldn't get the
ball back for almost a minute.
Alabama forward Jean Felix
missed the second of two free
throws with 1 minute, 1 second re-
maining, but UF forward Joakim
Noah fumbled the rebound out of
bounds.
The Crimson Tide's ensuing
possession resulted in more free

Questions

abound as

losses pile
USCALOOSA, Ala. It
was ugly. No, not the game,
Joakim Noah's face.
Did you see it? Like Michael
Jackson after a bad episode of
"Nip/Tuck," Noah bore more
work on the left side of his face
than Joan Rivers. A nasty scar
above his lip. A swollen cheek. A
puffy eye. All effects of the beat-
ing he took against Tennessee.
This is how Noah looked, and
it was only warm-ups. It gets you
thinking. Like about the King of
Pop himself. It makes you ask
the eter-
nal ques-
"g / tions,
S like:

did the
lovable,
LOUIS moon-
Anastasis walking
Louis in the Bullpen M k e
lanastasis@alligator.org go?" and
"Is that
12-yeai-
old honeydew of a voice still
hiding underneath all that knife
work?" So just like Noah's scars
hid a face his girlfriend has been
so proud of, you have to ask:
What is there to find behAd UF's
22-6 record?
You saw the Alabama game,
and you saw torture. A struggle
of a game. A fight for the Gators
to get their groove back. In the
end, even Stella was ashamed. So
you have to ask the questions.
Like where have the 17-0
Gators gone? What happened to
Wake Forest, to Syracuse? What
happened to the Iverson-esque
Taurean Green, who was such
a stealthy sniper behind the
3-point line to start the season
that even Dee Webb was spot-
ted wearing a bulletproof vest
around campus.
What happened to blowout
wins? What happened to perfect
team basketball? What happened
to Southeastern Conference
favorites; to replacing Kentucky
as the heir to the throne? What
happened to sickening Tubby
Smith so badly on ESPN2_that
afterward he reportedly tried to
empty his gut using the finger

r offensive rebound one of 14 in the
game after a miss and called a
timeout.
Alabama point guard Ronald
Steele then hit two foul shots to give
the Crimson Tide a 78-71 lead and ef-
fectively put the game out of reach.
"Wagve been getting outrebounded
Every game, it seems like," Brewer
said. "We've got to get tougher."
After seeming unable to hit any-
thing in the first half, the Gators' of-
fense awoke in the second.
UF shot 57.7 percent after intermis-
sion as opposed to 25.7 percent in the
first half.
"We finally got our offense where


it needed to be, but defensively we
just broke down in every aspect of the
game," Brewer said. "They rebounded
the ball, and they made shots."
But every time the Gators were
able to make a run, Alabama was right
there to answer.
The Crimson Tide were able to hold
off UF's repeated runs despite scoring
just one basket, a Felix 3-pointer to
take a 72-64 lead, outside of the paint
the entire second half.
And despite their best second-
half offensive efforts this season, the
-Gators came up on the short end yet
again.
"We hate losing. Everybody on our
team hates losing," Taurean Green
said. "We've just got to learn from this
game, watch film, learn from it and
move on to Georgia."

Rcycle) MONDRAV FEBRUA0V RY7 )06 Greeks split on endorsements N ABOUT 32 OF 44 SWAMP CANDIDATES ARE GREEK. By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writer Ilewis@alligator.org The house banners are fewer, but the Greek support is just as strong. Only three days before the Student Government election, just a handful of Greek organizations had placed political support banners outside their houses, but both of this Spring's political parties have strong ties to Greek chapters. Unlike past SG elections, in which a single party usually contained an overwhelming majority of Greek candidates, both the Swamp and Unite parties' slates have numerous Greek candidates this year. Of the 44 Student Senate candidates being fielded by the Swamp Party, at least 32 are members of Greek organizations. TheUnite Party, whichis running 41 Senate candidates, has at least 15 Greek hopefuls on its ticket. Student Senate President John Boyles, who is running for Student Body president with Swamp, said the large quantity of Greek candidates on his ticket simply reflects the candidates' ample leadership capacity. Boyles is not a member of a Greek organization. He added that to his knowledge, none of the Greek houses had come forth with a public endorsement for his party. However, as of press time, at least 12 houses E e d i s played Swamp banners. Several others, including Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Gamma, displayed Swamp banners last week but have since taken them down. "I don't think that affiliation with a Greek organization makes anyone any more or less qualified," Boyles said. "[Our candidates] are the best people." But one former Swamp supporter said he never had a voice in selecting those people. Student Sen. Ryan Nelson, who interviewed about 200 candidates for Swamp's senate slate, said he was denied the chance to help make SEE GREEK, PAGE 5 SPECIAL REPORT Multiple universities& witne-Pss, increase in spiamming By DAVID COHEN Alligator Writer dcohen@alligator.org Public records laws may add to UF's spain woes, but the university's dilemma isn't unique. State and federal laws require any public university in Florida to release its students' contact information -sometimes including e-mail addresses -if requested. About 80 percent of e-mail received at UF is spam. That overwhelming majority is on par with other major universities. At the University of Georgia, about 75 percent of e-mail received is seen as unwanted, which span blockers try to delete. UGA administrators agree that Georgia's open records law may contribute to the spam count. UGA Open Records Manager Bob Taylor said the university gives out student and faculty information on a compact disc -purchasable by anyone for $100. UT, on the other hand, tells anyone who wants a comprehensive list to go to its online directory. Federal law says university students can make their "directory information" -including name, phone number, address and e-mail address -private. Taylor said he sometimes disagrees with the accessibility of student information. "Is it allowed under the law? Yes," Taylor said of the CD. "Is it an abuse of the law? Yes. For me, [the purpose ofl an open records law is for accountability and not for helping someone with his business. They can print a gazilhion labels." "However," he added, "I do c the law."

Grundy is a coordinator of Body Acceptance Week 2006, which kicks off today. The coordinators are asking students today to turn in their jeans that don't fit. "What the jeans collection is about is instead of trying to fit into a pair of jeans that is too small for your natural body's shape and size, try to find jeans that you feel comfortable in and that fit you," Grundy said. She said students who donate jeans that no longer fit them will not have the urge to lose weight to squeeze back into them.

Quality In Everything We Do @2006 ERNST & YOUNG LUP Students perform for funds By JACQUELINE DAVISON Alligator Writer jdavison@aIIigator.org A variety of student organizations united in performance to raise money for an Indian charity Friday night. The Hindu Students Council held their sixth annual Multicultural Charity Show at the India Cultural and Education Center. The group raised money for AIM for Seva, a charity that works toward bridging the gap between mainstream society and the rural populations in Indian villages by providing medical and education facilities. AIM stands for All India Movement; Seva, in Sanskrit, means "service," with connotations of devotion and caring. A $5 admission fee was charged at the door, with additional donations requested as well. Campus groups, such as the Hip Hop Collective and the Chinese American Student Association, performed for about 250 attendees. "Pretty much we just asked our friends in different organizations," said Prasanna Durairaj, HSC vice president. Performances Multicultural ranged from traAffaIrS ditional Indian and Chinese dances to poetry, song and modem dance. The HSC has been working since the beginning of the semester on the event. HSC's goal has been to increase its membership, which has since doubled to 600 active members. The HSC is planning to host AIMV for Seva founder Swamid Dayananda Sarswati during its Southeast Regional Conference, which is on March 31 through April 2. Funds raised by the Multicultural Charity Show will also go toward Saraswati's visit during the conference. "He is the leading authority in Hindu, and he really couldn't be more perfect to speak to us," said HSC President Ashwini Tankhiwale. The exact amount raised by the show was unavailable at press time. HSCs from Florida, Georgia and Alabama universities meet yearly. This will be the first time the conference is being held at UP. "It's just a weekend where we can get together and learn about Hinduism," Durairaj said. "Our mission statement is to make people aware of Hinduism." -----

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27,2006 Poker helps spay, neuter cats E THE TEXAS HOLD'EM GAME RAISED ABOUT $3,600. By MELISSA JACOBS Alligator Contributing Writer Some play poker for money; others, for fame. But with the help of a dedicated group of Gainesville residents, a simple game of NoLimit Texas Hold 'em can spark a huge difference in the problem of stray cats in Alachua County. PokerForPets, a volunteer organization devoted to funding local animal rescues, hosts a tournament of No-Limit Texas Hold 'em that benefits different organizations each month. "People come out to play in our tournaments for a love of animals and for a love of poker," tournament director Iaon Cottrell said. This month's tournament, held Sunday at the UF Hillel, had 89 participants and raised about $3,600 for Operation Catnip,a non-profit group that aims to control the problem of stray and feral -or wild -cat populations through sterilization instead of euthanization. The problem is a growing one, said Julie Levy, a UF associate professor of veterinary medicine and the president of Gainesville's Operation Catip. There are about 43,000 pet cats in Alachua County and about 36,000 stray and feral cats that are often fed by humans. "Each year, there are 36,000 stray and feral cats reproducing in Alachua County," said Levy. "We must find ways to increase the number of surgeries we're doing and therefore increase the impact of our program on the community." The organization relies on Alachua County residents to bring stray felines to a monthly clinic where volunteer veterinarians and vet technicians sterilize more than 100 cats within hours. All cats have the tips of their left ears cropped, which identifies them as sterilized. The system, called trap-neuter(Classic Carwash Fufl DetMlng -Window Tinting 3010 SW Ah, Rd. 374-9227 10%OFF WIT H GATOR ONE or SFCC ID card Any Repair o Any Service Better Quality Better Service Expert Technician Competitive Prices -Free Shuttle Service Not valid with any other coupons or specials GAINESVIL DO G 372-4343 -3000 N Main St Gainesville resident Tim Palmer deals a hand of No-Limit Texas Hold 'em during the PokerForPets tournament held at UF Hillel on Sunday. return, is essential to addressing the stray cat population without euthanizing, Levy said. "This way, felines can continue to live out their lives without contributing to the problem," she said. Usually, unsterilized homeless cats fall into two categories: stray, which are friendly to humans, and feral, which are wild and averse to human interaction and contact, Levy said. Operation Catnip sterilized over 2,700 of these cats last year and aims to raise that number to more than 3,000 this year. The surgeries cost nothing to the caretaker but cost the organization about $25 per cat, which makes fundraisers like Sunday's poker tournament crucial. At the event, a $50 buy-in fee entitled players to a seat in the No-Limit Texas Hold 'em poker tournament, $10,000 in tournament chips and free beer. A prize pool valued at $1,479.96 awaited the top tournament winners, who also received automatic entry into next month's tournament and the chance to win the season's grand prize -a $10,000 seat at the 2006 U.S. Poker Championship at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City. -HE AMP wt ddA 7D OM E WHAT YC BEEN MISSI.

OUr fU7lr -Wswanpresten 352.37.SW&MP 1162S]S V $ Law school to get a new courtroom By LUANNE DIETZ Alligator Contributing Writer The Levin College of Law announced Wednesday a gift of $2 million to help fund a new advocacy center for the law school. The donation from Pensacola attorney Fred Levin, for whom the UF law school is named, will go toward the $5.2 million needed for a state-of-the-art courtroom and will give students the most modem equipment to learn with. "For the students that will be coming out in trial practice, they will have the opportunity to work with things that they will be working with in the real world," Levin said. Dean Robert Jerry said the addition will provide students with sophisticated facilities and services. "Many modem courtrooms have many modem innovations," Jerry said. "We want our UF students to have practice with those instratlom while they are here." The two-and-a-half story addition will be added onto Bruton-Geer Hall and will feature a grand entry foyer and fully functional trial and appellate courtroom, with a 120-seat gallery and a bench for seven judges. The addition would be a great asset to the program, Jerry said, noting UF's trial advocacy program is ranked 13 out of the country's approximately 190 programs. The law school hopes to be able to host on-site, live judicial proceedings, Jerry said. "Our students could watch the actual argument on site without having to travel," he said. "That could be a very valuable training activity for our students." But students will not be the only ones benefiting from the center. "The facility not only helps the students, but it will get topnotch faculty to come in and teach as well," Levin said. Construction of the new advocacy center is scheduled to begin in May 2007 and should be completed in Fall 2008, Jerry said. It is to be named in honor of Levin's son Martin H.,Levin, who is also an alumnus of UF's law school. On top of Levin's gift of $2 million, the state's matching grants program will match every dollar given over $1 million. With the addition of the advocacy center, there are hopes the law school will receive a boost in national rankings. "In order to have a great university, you have to have a great law school," Levin said. "This is just another step in that direction." F ' T a

Nelson is now a supporter of Unite. "It killed me," he said. "I couldn't understand how someone who interviewed over half our candidates didn't have a say in our candidates." Nelson said that whenehe asked where Swamp leaders would go to decide on a slate, he was told he wasn't allowed to know. Swamp spokesman Josh Weiss said he was unaware if Nelson had been prevented from attending the meeting. "As far as I know, I never heard anyone say that to him," he said. "He definitely did help interview a lot of candidates." Weiss said he was attending a Senate meeting when Swamp's slate was finalized, so he could not comment on who was in attendance. Nelson, a former president of Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity, said neither John Boyles nor the Greek system is controlling SG. "After a long time in that system, it begins to wear on your nerves," he said. "The system everyone refers to, in reality, isn't just Greek. It includes the greater black community and a lot of the cultural communities." Nelson emphasized that although he publicly supports Unite, he did not leave Swamp because of qualms with Boyles. "I legitimately don't like painting Swamp as these evil conspirators," he said. "It is not John I'm against." Instead, Nelson said, he opposes the "system" that promises SG positions before an election takes place. "Thursday morning, I came out and donned a red (Unite) shirt" he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2006 E~ditorial Two wrongs Presidential tickets look to be a wash In many past Student Government elections, there was a single party that we felt we could wholeheartedly support. Candidates had clear differences on the direction they wanted to take the university. Parties had distinct platforms with real differences. The entire university seemed to be wrapped up in a political fervor. This time, our job wasn't so easy. The executive candidates seem to be working off each other's talking points. It can be difficult just to tell the parties apart. The only contender for the SG executive branch that really wowed us was Susan Henriques for treasurer. Running as an independent, it's clear that Henriques' experience with budgeting and SG finance trumps anything that her opponents could come up with. Henriques has earned our full support and endorsement. The rest of the ticket was more difficult to decide. But after careful consideration, we have decided to throw our support behind the Unite Party's senatorial candidates. Their platform appears to be marginally more feasible than Swamp's, though that's not saying much. But as for the presidential and vice presidential races, we endorse no one. Because despite all of Unite's posturing about "the end of politics as usual," we see a lot more of the same. As a student senator and Unite presidential candidate, Jared Hernandez saw his share of shady dealings. Over the summer, the former Interfraternity Council president opposed the institution of true online voting, a measure he now enthusiastically supports. Last semester, Hernandez also used student funds to pay for a private pig roast off campus, though he later admitted that he was wrong to do so. Hernandez's running mate, UF football linebacker Brandon Siler, is a welcome addition to the ticket. We have been concerned about potential time conflicts with football during the Fall, but we now think he can handle it. And the linebacker is surprisingly well spoken about what he wants to do with the SG Cabinet -like cutting positions to decrease its size. Yet we have to admit that having Siler on the ticket looks a bit like a publicity stunt. After all, Siler has little to no experience with SG, although this could be an asset when dealing with the Cabinet. Swamp has its own set of problems. On the face of it, presidential candidate John Boyles looks like a great pick. But Boyles has been in the game for a long time. And while he isn't in a fraternity, he sits atop a largely Greekoacked party -all eleven of Swamp's undergraduate senators come from fraternities and sororities. Although Boyles claims to want to change the climate within SG to be more inclusive, it's uncertain whether he'll be able to do so once in office. Lydia Washisgton, Swamp's vice presidential candidate, boasts much more cabinet experience than her opponent Brandon Siler, but other than that, we don't know much about her. She also professed to want to roll back the Cabinet, though that may prove difficult if she's already associated with Cabinet leaders. Both of the presidential tickets have serious flaws. Unite's Jared Hernandez has a great deal of historical ties to special interests. So does John Boyles. The vice presidential candidates, Siler and Washington, are probably only of secondary importance. And we just can't shake the feeling that a vote for either ticket is a vote for the status quo. So for treasurer, vote for Susan Henriques. For senate, vote for Unite. But for president and vice president, flip a coin. ti independent florida wlic&-to Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Durrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions 4 "Copyrighted Material SSyndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" SG needs to restore trust in leaders orgive my cynicism, but having witnessed far too many elections rife with political -debacles and reneged-upon promises, my trust in student candidates has been eroded with each cycle of fervor and subsequent indifference. While I do not mean to denigrate a candidate's word, what assurances besides enthusiastic promises can they give us -the student body -that they will be any different from their corrupt predecessors? Each year brings another layer of similar politicians making expansive promises that are totally unrealistic, followed by nothing but unachieved dreams -to the detriment of the student body as a whole. The current state of affairs has been so demoted as to render politicians naturally dishonest, unscrupulous and self-serving. I hesitate to call anyone's intentions into question, but I ask each of the Student Body presidential candidates this sincere and dire question: How do you propose to restore faith in political leaders before becoming elected? Is this even possible? Perhaps my hope for a restoration of confidence is too grandiose t6impose upon you, but that would seem to make politics a lot like religion -a system based on faith. This might seem like an odd analogy, but if unfulfilled promises are the norm, how do you expect me to believe in you, someone who seems to be more of the same? Jared Hernandez has attempted to paint himself in orange and blue, citing discontent with the current regime of political officers. In fiery oratorical theatrics, he promises to be more representative of the student body :o better serve our constituent interests. However, his platform promises are eerily identical to those of John Benjamin Boyles. This article isn't meant to Abdulnour condemn or uplift such promises, Speaking Out but merely to point out the fact that every candidate in the past decade has made such pledges verbatim. The disheartening fact is that though Jared Hernandez can give no concrete assurances as to his ability to implement change, his opponent, John Boyles, does not even acknowledge the problems present in our current state "of political affairs. Boyles wishes instead to work within the system through a process of slow and steady change. Such efforts are doomed to failure, and their proposal is not encouraging. It smacks of naivete at best and insincerity at worst. Radical reform is needed, but a prerequisite for that is a revival of confidence in student politics and its ability to deliver change. I do not wish to hear more bombastic and unattainable campaign promises or recitals of formulaic resumes. Such delusional claims and previously held offices do not impress me. Furthermore, I resent the unabashedly shameless self-aggrandizement that characterizes our prevailing student political atmosphere. I am here instead to ask you for an honest, realistic and heartfelt written response explaining what differentiates you from our sordid political past. Only an extremely persuasive response will carry any force, but without such a response, student civic participation will be forever condemned to its current exile from the realm of significant discourse.

Candidate story omits important facts As a former journalism major, freelance writer and current law student, I found Alejandra Cancino's article on independent candidates lacking in careful editorial discretion. The topic itself was rather frivolous because all candidates interviewed wanted to be part of the Swamp Party. Therefore, it is not as if the candidates initially had any more bold, independent plans than current members of the Swamp party. Furthermore, politics in law school differ from undergraduate school because political parties play a much lesser role when it comes to acquiring votes. Luis Delgado, the Swamp candidate for the law school seat, has put in an incredible amount of time, money and care in getting his message out to other law students. He does not display the glossy fliers described in the article. He has homemade posters, and I dare say he works just as hard as the other candidate. I feel it was extremely unfair and very biased to needlessly publicize one law school senate candidate and not the other in such a close-knit community as law school. Jennifer Grace Raymond 2LW SG should subsidize student tickets Recently, I attempted -to purchase some tickets for a few upcoming shows oh campus at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and University Auditorium. I was informed that student tickets are now limited seating, rather than open seat choice, because SG is no longer subsidizing student tickets. SG gives our money to all sorts of things, but the arts always seems to fall by the wayside. I am sick of reading in the newspapers that SG controls $12 million of our student money, and yet they can't seem to manage it worth a hoot. SG needs to make a serious effort to bring back open seating choice at these venues. Without these open seating options, these venues remain solely for the people of Gainesville but not necessarily UF students. The Phillips Center is a nonprofit organization that needs SG money to make this type of seating available. I want my SG to spend money on things that matter, like the arts, and not on things that don't, like free towels in the gyms -bring your own towel.

These words might make your mouth water, or the thought of the calorie-filled pleasures alone might send you straight to the gym. But for Student Body treasurer candidate Susan Henriques, they bring to mind fond memories of some cuddly canines -her dogs Cookie, Cookie II and Brownie. "We must have been hungry when naming our dogs or something," she said with a giggle. And by "we," Henriques means her mom Jane, her dad Tony and her sisters, Jennifer and Kelly. Henriques cares a lot about her family and goes home whenever she can to visit them, said Rosemarie Clouston, Susan's campaign manager and good friend. "Susan is one of the most dedicated people I've ever met," Clouston said. "Once she puts her mind to something, it gets done, and it gets done-well." Even if it means performing rock concerts with her sisters. From hanging out to rocking out, the Henriques sisters always had their share of fun. Henriques chuckled as she described the rock shows she and her sisters would perform for their parents. She said her older sister, Jennifer, would dress her up in her clothes and do her hair and makeup to get ready for the big show. "We were crazy kids," Henriques said with a bashful smile. "Susan is one of the most dedicated people I've ever met." Rosemarie Clouston -Susan Henriques' campaign manager She said the object of the girls' affection growing up was their first dog, a Labrador mix named Cookie. As she toyed with the rubber bands that held her green platform cards together in the Reitz Union last week, she explained that her family had Cookie for about a year and a half. But upon moving to an apartment with strict no-pet laws, the Henriques family faced the facts: Cookie had to take a little trip to the pound.

Closer tohome, Florida State University has seen a 10 percent increase in spam since October 2005. About 75 percent of e-mail coming into its systems is considered spam. Director of University Computing Services Mike Barker said spam increases seem to be the trend among universities nationwide. "It's a continually evolving thing, trying to outsmart the sparrmers," he said. "It does require baby-sitting," he added. FSU recently changed its policy, requiring a usemame and password to access student "directory information" online. Barker said this decision had nothing to do with spam problems. The university experienced a 25 percent increase in total e-mail Special volume since p October 2005, from 750,000 to 1.1 million. UF, which does not require a login to access student information, has experienced a fourfold increase in unwanted e-mail over the last 18 months. Like UP, FSU employs one full-time employee to oversee its student e-mail accounts. Some speculate that "bots" from spammers control other computers with fast Internet connections, Barker said. FSU is connected to the UF-monitored Florida LambdaRail, a statewide fiber-optic network linking 10 state universities to the Internet and each others' research databases. One university's computing issues, including slowdown due to excess spam, can affect the others, but Barker said he isn't concerned because of FSU's firewalls. Despite any potential slowdown, the network is ideal because it offers a lowcost option for FSU, which, he said, "moves data at an unprecedented rate."

Unfortunately, guests were met at the door of Smathers Library on.Friday night to Willingham's graphic novel, "Fables," incorporates childhood characters into a modern-day setting. The comic serves as an example of a work that blends childhood elements with adult themes. "It's incredibly disappointing," conference coordinator Laurie Taylor said of his absence. "'Fables' is huge with the uber-nerdy comic crowd and with non-comic readers." Several panels at the .Headquarters Library spanned Saturday, the third and final day of the conference. The main event Saturday came from Nate Powell, who gave a live performance of scenes from his work. It was the most entertaining performance of the conference, coordinator Cathlena Martin said. "For one scene, he laid on the table curled up with a pillow on his side," Martin said. "It was hilarious." Students decide fate of SG Internet voting this week By ALEJANDRA CANCINO Alligator Writer acancino@alligdtor.org After years of controversy, students -not Student Government officials -will finally decide the future of Internet voting during this week's SG election. Students will vote Tuesday and Wednesday on an initiative that will include Internet voting as an option for the Fall SG election. Internet voting will allow students to vote from any computer connected to the Internet by using their GatorLink usemame and password. "I am very excited," said Susan Henriques, independent candidate for Student Body treasurer, who wrote the initiative and worked to put it on the ballot. "I feel that it is going to pass." Initiatives, if approved, become SG law. A year ago, the Impact and Progress parties tried to put a similar initiative on the ballot,.but the SG Supreme Court blocked them because the initiative was improperly written. Last Summer, a temporary committee researched whether Internet or intranet voting -voting from designated computers on campus -would be more secure. The security of Intemet voting has been an issue for about five years. In recent years, various SG committees have EW0i) hII been created to research the feasibility of Internet voting. The Summer committee recommended using intranet voting and. deemed Internet voting insecure because, in the committee's opinion, it could be more susceptible to fraud. After the committee's findings, Henriques, then a student senator, wrote an amendment to allow Internet voting, but the Student Senate blocked it. As a result of the committee's findings, during the Fall election intranet voting debuted with widespread glitches, including lack of available computers and students voting for incorrect candidates. However, the voter turnout during that election increased by about 2,000 voters. "[Intranet voting] was a step in the right direction," Henriques said. "It was helpful -but not what the students want." Under the current system, the SG supervisor of elections can select one of three ways for students to cast a ballotpaper ballots, electronic voting and intranet voting -none of which allow students to vote from home. Supervisor of Elections Erika Kane said she would be happy to have the option to use Internet voting, but she would not use it if she were re-nominated to hold her position again in the Fall. S"[Internet voting] takes away from the security of the polling locations where you are by yourself," she said. Kane said inher option, Internet voting was not secure enough. "Yeah, you are not allowed to (share your GatorLink username and password), but people do," she said. However, Henriques said the initiative also allows the supervisor of elections to chose one polling location on campus where students can cast their votes. Adam Roberts, Unite Party leader, and Amanda Kane, the Unite spokeswoman, both helped write the Internet voting initiative. "This is an issue important for the students," Roberts said. "And it was brought straight to them." Although Unite is advocating online voting in its platform, Roberts said the initiative is nonpartisan. Henriques said she appreciates Unite endorsing the issue in its platform so that more students get to hear about it. "As long as [the initiative] passes, I don't care who endorses it as long as the students get to vote and decide on the issue," Henriques said. Swamp Party spokesman Josh Weiss said his party does not have an official stand, but it will support whatever the students decide Tuesday and Wednesday. Online Timeline Spring Sgring 2005 Summer Fall 2006, 2005 2005' The Impact and A temporary SG Intranet voting Students will vote to Progress parties committee is created debuts with widedecide whether to tried to put an online to research whether spread glitches. allow Internet voting voting initiative on Internet or intranet in future SG the ballot, but the voting is more elections.

16, ALLIGATOR 0 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2006 Gators struggle at plate in shutout loss to Wake N NO. 1 UF DROPPED TWO DURING A THREE-GAME TOURNAMENT AT HOME. By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS Alligator Staff Writer sdvanness@alligator.org The Gators' bats, their preseason strength, their high-powered weapons that drove in 40 runs in three games during opening weekend, all went AWOL Sunday The No. 1, but not for long, UF baseball team (8-3) fell to unranked Wake Forest 4-0 and was outhit almost three to one in its third and final game of the 2006 Pepsi Baseball Classic. The tournament was an overall disappointment for the_ host Gators, as they were hammered 14-5 by Missouri on Friday before their loss to the Demon Deacons. UF defeated Ohio State 10-3 on Saturday to prevent its first threegame losing skid since May. "Our approach [from the plate] just hasn't been what it needs to be," junior shortstop Adam Davis said. "We need to just do the little things right. .We have some guys who are trying to do too much." Missouri's All-American ace Max Scherzer surprised no one in frustrating UF at the plate Friday, but a complete-game shutout by Wake Forest's Charlie Mellies was a bit more unexpected. "I think [Mellies] pitched extremely well, but we've got to swing the bats better," UF coach Pat McMahon said. "The work effort is there, but we've got to put the ball in play." On Sunday, the Gators simply struggled to build momentum at the plate. Brian LeClerc singled in the seventh iming to end a 0-for-9 UF drought from the plate. The crowd awoke,-the "charge" chant blasted from the loudspeakers and Gavin Dickey promptly hit into a double play. In the eighth, the Gators placed runners on first and second after a fielding blooper that saw the Demon Deacons' shortstop and second baseman attempt to simultaneously tag UF''s Austin Pride at second. Again, UP came up empty as Chris Petrie struck out and Pride was caught attempting to reach third base. And Sunday wasn't an anomaly. After starting off with a .333 tearn batting average in openingweekend play against Cincinnati, the Gators have slumped by a hundred points down to .233 in the following games. Power from the plate -has also waned sharply, with UF picking up more home runs in its first three games of the season than in the last eight combined. "[Struggling at the plate] is really frustrating, but it gives the guys a reason to come back out the next day," Davis said. "It makes you want to gain the respect back Senior Darren O'Day pitches against Wake Forest during the Gators' loss on Sunday. O'Day was one of five UF pitchers to take the mound against the Demon Deacons. that we've earned. "It encourages us to get back out here and get a win the next day." Reigning NCAA home-run leader Matt LaPorta's absence from the lineup due to an injured rib cage seems an obvious explanation for the Gators' offensive woes, but Davis isn't buying it. "Obviously it's hard .but that shouldn't be a factor," he said. "When a guy comes out of the lineup, that's a guy on the bench's chance to come up and do his thing." McMahon said LaPorta was still day-to-day and would not speculate on his possible return for Tuesday night's showdown with visiting Florida State. PITCHER'S MOUND MERRYGO-ROUND: The Gators fielded five pitches Sunday to Wake Forest's one. Freshman J.K. LaCoste made his third start of the season but was believed by sophomore Josh Edmondson in the third after giving up a pair of runs. Sophomore -Tommy Wynn started the seventh and was quickly replaced by junior lefty David Hurst, who in turn was pulled in favor of senior Darren O'Day after only one batter. McMahon said the Gators need to find a third pitcher to contribute more innings. Besides top starters Bryan Ball and Bryan Augenstein, UF has not received more than nine outs from any starter. UF rolls to victory at San Juan tourney By JENNA MARINA Alligator Writer The UF women's golf team won the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Sunday with a team score of 885. The No. 22 Gators managed to maintain their first-place standing for the second day in a row, despite only holding a one-stroke lead in front of No. 3 Purdue and No. 9 Arkansas heading into the final round. "It was a good match for us," UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton said. "Our putts were rolling in, shots were being made where they needed to be and the girls hung in there and fought hard to the end." To make the win even sweeter, five of the Gators' six golfers placed among the top-25 individual scores. Sophomore Whitney Myers, who placed second to nab her first top-10 of the season, led the team with her best three-round score of the season at an even-par 216. Sophomore Sandra Gal achieved her best finish of the season by tying for sixth place with a score of 221 (5 over). Redshirt freshman Ornella Jouven, who competed as an individual, and freshman Brittany Nelson carded identical 224s (8 over) to tie for 18th place. F r e s h m a n M a 11 o r y Wo men S Blackwelder finGolf ished the tournament with a 10-' over-par 226. Sophomore Tiffany Chudy trailed Blackwelder by one stroke at 227. "I'm so proud of the effort this team put in over the weekend," Briles-Hinton said. "They really grew a lot throughout this tournament. They got some quality experience and went head-tohead with some of the top teams in the nation." The Gators will try to utilize that experience when they compete at the University Golf Course at the Lady Gator Invitational beginning March 11. Women suffer season's first loss STAFF REPORT At times this season, the No. 2 UF women's tennis team has looked unstoppable. Sunday was not one of those times. For the first time this season, the Gators (6-1) lost, falling to No. 10 North Carolina (12-2) 4-3 at the Cone-Kenfield Indoor Tennis Center in Chapel Hill, N.C. It was just the ninth loss in five seasons for UF coach Roland Thornqvist (106-9), a North Carolina alumnus and former Tarheels coach from 1999-2001. North Carolina defeated its highest-ranked opponent in school history with the win. The near-freezing temperatures forced the matches inside, where the Gators are not as accustomed to playing. The clinching match for the Tarheels came against UF sophomore Diana Srebrovic, the reigning ITA National Indoor Singles Champion. Srebrovic was bumped to No. 2 in the lineup partly because of recent inconsistent play and partly due to the dominating play of teammate Alexis Gordon. Still, Srebrovic's (7-6 (5), 7-6~ (5)) loss was about as close as a straight-set match can be. North Carolina's Caitlin Collins forced a first-set tiebreaker against Srebrovic. Knotted at 3-3 in the tiebreaker, Collins got a crucial mini-break and served her way to a 7-5 win. I The second set mirrored the first. After Srebrovic went up 5-4, Collins again forced a tiebreaker. Srebrovic led 5-3 in the tiebreaker, but Collins battled back to take the 7-5 tiebreaker Gordon and to the match. Gordon continued her strong play, winning her No. 1 singles match in straight sets (6-3, 6-3) against North Carolina's Jenna Long. UP sophomore Lolita Frangulyan and senior Boglarka Berecz lost their singles matches in straight sets, while sophomore Whitney Benik and junior Nina Suvak both fought back to win their respective singles matches in three sets. The Gators made strides in doubles last week but returned to their previously shaky play on Sunday. Benik and Gordon never could get in rhythm, falling 8-4 in No. 1 doubles. Freshman Keri Robison and Suvak lost their No. 3 doubles match 8-5 to clinch the doubles point for the Tar Heels. Only Srebrovic and Frangulyan were able to salvage a doubles win for the Gators, winning their match 8-6.

ick busts out of slump THE UF JUNIOR SET A SCHOOL ECORD WITH SEVEN RBI. STAFF REPORT If Melissa Zick was in a slump, no>dy would have known it from her performance this weekend. Zick set a school and NFCA Leadoff lassie record with seven RBI in an 11), nine-inning win against Illinois on iday afternoon. Before that, the UF junior first basetan, who was second on the 'team in batting average and RBI last year, was hitting just over .250 and ranked fifth on te team in RBI. Leading off the bottom of the seventh tning, UF senior catcher Kristen Butler it hertearn-leading eighth home run to ring the Gators within one. Zick then ngled for her fourththit. She would ter steal second and then take third off groundout by junior Lauren Roussell. iior Lacy Howard then drilled the ame-tying hit down the left field line to e the game. After a scoreless eighth inning, Illinois managed to scrape a run in the top of the inth. To start off the bottom of the ninth, UF freshman Kim Waleszonia took second base due to international tie-breaker rules. After senior Lindsey Cameron reached on a base hit to advance Waleszonia, a Butler sacrifice fly scored her, tying the game at 10-10. Illinois then walked Zick, and UF's hopes rested on Roussell. She responded with a hit to right field, scoring Cameron for the winnmg r un. Later, UF extended ots four-game winning streak, defeating Forida Atlantic 9-1. While the Gators had struggled to score runs in early innings Zick thus far, that was not an issue this game. UF plated seven runs in the first inning alone. Four of which came from the improving bat of freshman third baseman Brooke Johnson, who hit her first career home run in style with a grand slam. Those runs would be all UF pitcher Stacey Stevens would need. The junior threw a complete game while not giving up an earned run with nine strikeouts. But the Gators could not try to continue their winning streak, as the remaining games were cancelled due to rain.

18, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2006 sorrso putS on show at SiEC meet By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer When UF junior Mike Morrison was asked to describe his previous experiences at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships, he simply responded, "plagued." But when asked to describe his experience at this weekend's conference meet, his word of choice was "focused." The 10-time All-American showed he had good reason to feel that way. During the weekend, Morrison defended .his SEC title in the high jump and earned a championship in the long jump, a title Track & Field that eluded him in last year's SEC meet. He became the first athlete in 36 years to win both jump events at the meet, as the No. 12 UF men's team took third at the O'Connell Center. No. 1 Arkansas won the meet. -Morrison, who finished the meet with 22 points, also took home the SEC Commissioner's Trophy, awarded to the athlete with the most points in the meet. "I knew I was going to come in her.and win my two events," Morrison said. "Hopefully, I can come back next year and try and defend both titles." Morrison set a personal record in the high jump with a jump of 7 feet, 5 'A inches and helped the 400-meter relay team finish second. The only event in which Morrison competed that he didn't excel was the 55-meter dash, where he failed to qualify for the finals. In the long jump, he hit a mark of 25 feet, 9 'A inches, one-half inch better than the secondplace finisher. "He's a junior, and he's been through a few of these now," UF field coach Dan Pfaff said. "He executed very well today. When you come in and win the Commissioner's Trophy, it is a pretty special accomplishment." The men's team finished with 100 points, including eight hardearned points from senior Shane Stroup, who nearly won the mile run in an exciting final lap dash. "I was very pleased with our ability to show up and compete in a big meet," UF men's coach Mike Holloway said. "I was very pleased Mike could win the Commissioner's Trophy. Mike's an electric performer." Senior All-American Rachel Longfors, who finished second in the weight throw, led the UF women's team. The distance medley team added 8 points after finishing second. "Given the circumstances, I'd say our kids competed well," UF women's coach Tom Jones said. "We had a great performance by our weight throwers, and our distance medley relay team ran well. "There were just too many Casey Lawson / Alligator UF junior Mike Morrison competes in the long jump title this weekend in the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships at the O'Connell Center. Morrison won the long jump and the high jump. marginal marks to make up." The UF women's team finished the meet in eighth place with 45.5 points. Georgia took the championship with 101.5 points.

S Ports MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27,2006 iara oss marks UF's third straight By DAN TREAT Alligator Staff Writer dtreat@alligator.org TUSCALOOSA,Ala. -Capping he Southeastern Conference's throwback week on Sunday, the gators might want to run their :irca-1970 jerseys through a ;hredder and burn the remains. After suffering losses to Arkansas last weekend and Tennessee on Wednesday, UF -left Alabama with its first rewer threegame osing streak since 2003, and the Zators are 5-6 since starting the ;eason on a school-record 17Yame winning streak. Alabama (16-10, 9-5 SEC) had ive scorers in double figures md never trailed while keeping \lo. 12 UP (22-6, 8-6 SEC) at bay throughh a series of second-half uris to come out with an 82-77 victory at home. "Teams are just playing us diferent," sophomore Corey Brewer ;aid. "They're throwing different things at us. We've just got to idjust. It's getting late. It's getting real late, so we've got to learn quick." UF remains tied with Kentucky for second place in the SEC East, and the season's final two games against the Wildcats and Georgia will determine whether the Gators will be able to secure a first-round bye in the conference tournament. The Gators found themselves trailing from the opening tip, falling behind by 11 at three separate occasions during the first half and as many as 12 in the second. UF closed the gap to 3 points on three different occasions during the second half and trailed by 4 at 75-71 with 1 minute, 17 seconds remaining after guard Lee Humphrey, who started for the first time since Jan. 28, connected his fifth 3-pointer of the half. But the Gators wouldn't get the ball back for almost a minute. Alabama forward Jean Felix missed the second of two free throws with 1 minute, 1 second remaining, but UF forward Joakim Noah fumbled the rebound out of bounds.

UF has lost six of its last 11 games. III 9 0 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Questions abound as losses pile T USCALOOSA, Ala. -It was ugly. No, not the game, Joakim Noah's face. Did you see it? Like Michael Jackson after a bad episode of "Nip/Tuck," Noah bore more work on the left side of his face than Joan Rivers. A nasty scar above his lip. A swollen cheek. A puffy eye. All effects of the beating he took against Tennessee. This is how Noah looked, and it was only warm-ups. It gets you thinking. Like about the King of Pop himself. It makes you ask the eternal quesI i ok e "Where did the lovable, Louis moonAnastasis walking Louis in the Bullpen M i k e lanastasis@agator.org go?" and "Is that 12-yearold honeydew of a voice still hiding underneath all that knife work?" So just like Noah's scars hid a face his girlfriend has been so proud of, you have to ask: What is there to find behid UF's 22-6 record? You saw the Alabama game, and you saw torture. A struggle of a game. A fight for the Gators to get their groove back. In the end, even Stella was ashamed. So you have to ask the questions. Like where have the 17-0 Gators gone? What happened to Wake Forest, to Syracuse? What happened to the Iverson-esque Taurean Green, who was such a stealthy sniper behind the 3-point line to start the season that even Dee Webb was spotted wearing a bulletproof vest around campus. What happened to blowout wins? What happened to perfect teambasketball? What happened to Southeastern Conference favorites; to replacing Kentucky as the heir to the throne?

20, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2006 UF offense awakens too late HOOPS, from page 19 throws, but Alabama grabbed another offensive rebound -one of 14 in the game -after a miss and called a timeout. Alabama point guard Ronald Steele then hit two foul shots to give the Crimson Tide a 78-71 lead and effectively put the game out of reach. "We4ve been getting outrebounded every game, it seems like," Brewer said. "We've got to get tougher." After seeming unable to hit anything in the first half, the Gators' offense awoke in the second. UF shot 57.7 percent after intermission as opposed to 25.7 percent in the first half. "We finally got our offense where LOU IS, from page 19 method? What happened to Walter Hodge's baby 'fro? Where is Matt Walsh hiding, and does he hold some secret behind all of this madness, behind the Gators losing six of their last 11? Where has the rebounding gone? Is Al Horford really a top-10 NBA Draft prospect when his team can't find a board in a lumberyard? Is Joakim Noah really the second coming of Marcus Camby when the Gators run from rebounds like the black plague? What happened to Subway giveaways? What happened to beating the Dominique Wilkins out of Georgia and to scaring the Terry Porter out of Auburn? What happened to strumming the Jo*-ny Cash out of Vanderbilt? Where did the season disappear? Where did the blazing start squeal to a halt? Was it under the Knoxville basket where Corey Brewer sprained his ankle? it needed to be, but defensively we just broke down in every aspect of the game," Brewer said. "They rebounded the ball, andi they made shots." But every time the Gators were able to make a run, Alabama was right there to answer. The Crimson Tide were able to hold off UF's repeated runs despite scoring just one basket, a Felix 3-pointer to take a 72-64 lead, outside of the paint the entire second half. And despite their best secondhalf offensive efforts this season, the Gators came up on the short end yet again. "We hate losing. Everybody on our team hates losing," Taurean Green said. "We've just got to learn from this game, watch film, learn from it and move on to Georgia." Was it in Renaldo Balkman's hair? Was it in Dane Bradshaw's'70s'do, or was it in his stickum hands? How do you go from boasting the best field-goal percentage in the country to shooting 26 percent against Alabama in the first half? How does Lee Humphrey make every 3-pointer, from every angle, with every Alabama player in his face, and how.can it not matter? Why does Billy Donovan elect to foul Alabama toward the end of the game when the Gators had enough time to play a little defense, make a couple of shots and still be in contention? Why did Donovan say he couldn't have expected a team so inexperienced to correctly inbound a pass against Tennessee? Why does Donovan say he can only be proud of this team? Why does he say he is shocked UF has lost just six games? Why does he insist it's all good? The questions keep piling up, which can only make you wonder: What happened to finding answers?
