When Jared Hemandez and.

morning, neither of them thought
he would experience problems

the Student Body presidential
candidates were not alone. Voters
encountered problems at almost
every one of the 16 on-campus vot-
At some locations, voters were
turned away. At others, techni-
cal problems prevented students
from voting on a controversial
Despite the glitches, 5,119 vot-
ers turned up at the polls Tuesday.
On the first day of the Spring 2005
election, about 4,266 ballots were
cast. Voting continues today from
8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Although the voting locations
on campus needed to be ready to
receive students at 8 a.m., many of
them were not ready for another 90
Hernandez, the Unite Party
candidate, said that when he went
to the law school to vote, he was
unable to do so until about 9:30
Boyles, the Swamp Party can-
didate, voted at the, Computer
Sciences and Engineering Building
and was forced to switch comput-
ers because he was unable to log
on to the first one he used.
The problem was not the soft-
ware provided for the election

Conflict Abroad, Coed On Campus
Dorm faces small fire
By ASHLEY PACK
Alligator Contributing Writer
A small fire in Building 4 of UF's
Lakeside Residential Complex resulted in
some disgruntled residents early Tuesday
The fire, which started in Room 305
and injured no one, began when a Totino's
pizza box sitting near the stove caught on
fire. It was put out by Mountain Dew and
a garbage can of water.
Some of Room 305's residents and
their neighbors were having a water fight
With squirt guns, water balloons and gar-
bage cans full of water, said Nick Veith, a
UF freshman and Room 305 resident.
"That's why we had the water conve-
niently ready," Veith said.
It is unknown who caused the fire, but
someone must have bumped the stove
during the fight, putting the burner on

Meanwhile, the fire alarm went off for
Building Four at about 12:30 a.m. Some
residents were sleeping, and many said
they were upset because they had tests
the next day. Many thought someone had
just pulled the alarm for fun, but when
a fire truck and police car arrived at the
scene, they knew it was real.

The Water Institute is rare among university
projects because it has been generated and pro-
pelled by UF faculty instead of administrators.
"That's the best way to make progress at a

member who helped start the institute. "The

Speaker discusses false patriotism
By BOBBY EAGLE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Influential American historian, play-
wright, social activist and political sci-
entist Howard Zinn blended in with the
crowd as he sat in the front row of seats
before his speech Tuesday night.
After being introduced, Zinn stood
up and made his way to the stage to
speak to an estimated 2,000 people
about the importance of people staying
informed on what is really going on in
"I read the papers and I think some
little bunch of aliens have landed in
Washington and have taken over the
country," he said.
Though the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts was filled to capacity,
about 75 people watched Zinn from a
projected screen outside.
In his speech titled "The Uses of
History and the War in Iraq," Zinn said
that throughout history, politicians have
given speeches saying their actions are
in the best interest of the country.
Zinn stressed the importance of
historical facts and what can happen if
people stay apathetic or uninformed.
"History is a matter of life or death,"
Zinn cited times in the past where
politicians have used the media to tell
"lies" to convince the American people
to go to war.
Of the lies politicians have told, Zinn
said the biggest is "that the people and
the government have the same inter-
"That's not true," he added.
Zinn also said patriotism defined as
complete loyalty to the government is
not patriotism. He said that kind of at-
titude cannot be accepted.
In a prior interview, Zinn said he
hoped students would leave the speech
understanding that their lives and the
lives of their children depend upon
being involved, not being neutral and
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Zinn was a
shipyard worker, labor organizer and
World War II veteran. He later became
professor emeritus of political science
at Boston University and authored 20
books most famously "A People's
History of the United States."
Zinn's appearance cost about
$12,000. It was sponsored by a number
of local organizations primarily the
Civic Media Center, Accent and Animal
Activists of Alachua, said Civic Media
Center volunteer Peter Gruskin.
Daniel Helm, a 20-year-old political
science sophomore, said he attended
Zinn's speech because his mother rec-
"There were a lot of interesting points
about our past history that brings us to
this point as a nation," Helm said. "It's
more than I would have expected."

New Women LackFacilities, Costs Cut Due to War Spending
100 YEARS, from page 1
The campus became a military
camp and host to would-be officers
in the Army Specialized Training
Lasley, a member of the UF ROTC
program, attended class in uniform
and lived in Murphree Hall.
When World War II ended in
1945, enrollment was 3,216. By 1946,
it exploded to 7,373, a growth that
reflected a national trend.
Nationwide, America's universi-
ties were unprepared for the flood
"At UF, thousands were housed
in an abandoned military base and
bused to campus," Van Ness said.
UF's integration of women oc-
curred on Sept. 22,1947, when both
UF and FSU became coeducational.
By 1948, UF had 1,600 women.
One of the biggest complaints
by UF's women was the lack of rest
But adding new facilities was dif-
ficult for the university because of
government war spending.
Students play around at the 1949 Gator Growl Homecoming.
The Alligator switched from a
weekly to twice-weekly paper in
1939. Cost cutting hit in the fall of
1942, and it returned to its weekly
status. The editor of the paper saw a
$5 pay deduction to $10 per week.
However, the students did invest
in a new, automated voting machine
for Student Government elections,
The Oct. 4, 1941, edition of the
Alligator said the machines did

ing that there were "less than 1,300
votes cast." The Gator Party swept

"Being in a fraternity, the house
was the place to be," Lasley said.
- Over the. weekends he would
go to Tallahassee with some of
his fraternity brothers to visit his
high school sweetheart, who was a
Kappa Delta at the women's school.
They were later happily married.
Lasley said he felt his UF tenure
in the '40s was a great experience.
"I think a lot of us learned a lot
about what things are important,"
Lasley said. "I think it's important to
have a good idea of who you are and
what you can do and be a part of a
community. Help others and others

It is expected that this in-

value in clarifying the status of
students affected by selective

fall in the above classification
are urged to comply with this
request. Arrangements have
been made for students to fill
out the forms in the Florida

than five minutes will be re-

Dean Beaty added that
"the students should realize
that by continuing their col-
lege training now they would
be of far more value to the
country when they are called
Student feeling on the
war declaration has generally
been one of confidence in final
victory and in many cases
a desire to join the fighting
forces immediately. Although
the exact figure is lacking, it
is known that several students
have already resigned to join
the army, navy or marines.
Miss Edith Pitts, executive
secretary of the president, said
that so far the University has
received no special instruc-
tions from Washington as to
any change in administrative
plans, but that such instruc-
tions may be received in a
week or two.
Dean Beaty previously
gave The Alligator assurance
that the University has been
informed that it would not
be turned into a huge military
training camp, as was the case
in World War I.
FDR's FirstWar Speech SeesVictory
"We are going to win the war and the peace that follows
from the difficult hours of these days, dark days yet to come.
For the vast majority of the members of humanity are on our
side... Our cause represents their cause... Our hope is their
hope of liberty under God."
With that confident statement, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
concluded his first wartime speech to the American public from the
White House last night.
"We are fighting to maintain our right to live, without fear of as-
sault," asserted the President, "and we are allin it all the way ev-
ery man, woman, and child and we must bear with the changing
forces of war, taking the good news with the bad."
Long And Hard War
America must be set for a long and hard war against crafty ban-
dits, Mr. Roosevelt continued. The treacherous Pearl Harbor attack
may be repeated anywhere, and the events following may not all be

Senators OK graduate insurance
By LINDSEY FRANCO
Student Senate had a full plate but
low attendance Tuesday night.
The body had just enough senators
in order to pass bills to give UF admin-
istration more say in graduate student
insurance coverage, recommend
against major changes in on-campus
parking and move toward a reduction
of the Student Government Cabinet.
Before acting on the legislation,
senators sang "Happy Birthday" to
Senate President John Boyles.
From there, the bill to adjust the
SG Insurance Board passed its second
reading with a unanimous vote. It will
now go to Student Body President Joe
Goldberg to be signed.
No senators asked questions, de-
bated or -opposed the bill, and with
one "fantastic, congratulations," from
Boyles, the vote was complete.
Senate passed the first reading of a
pair of bills that shot down two pro-
posals by the UF Transportation and
Parking Committee that could have

of the bill and said he was appalled by
the committee's proposal.
"I am deeply disturbed this com-

Josh Weiss said.
The first bill needed at least a two-
thirds vote, and it passed with one
The second parking bill passed by
senators struck down a proposal that
aimed to restrict the sale of commuter
lot decals only to graduate students.
Restricting undergraduate students
from parking in the commuter lot
would force them to park in the Park 'n

Late Tuesday night, senators passed
the first reading of a watershed bill
to cut the size of the sprawling SG
Cabinet. If the bill passes a second
reading next week, it becomes SG law.

cabinet, which, if passed, would cut the

Daniel Mihacy, another third-floor resident, was
cooking when the fire alarm interrupted.
"I was baking a casserole when I was suddenly star-
tled by a loud, piercing noise," Mihacy said. "I barged
out of my door to see what the ruckus was and the foul,
thick haze hit me like a punch in the face."
Ashley Mitchell, the resident assistant for Room 305,
was in the Lakeside commons area when the fire panel,
which alerts the office staff to a fire, started to go off.
When she went outside, she found out it was one of
the rooms she was the resident assistant for.
"It's sad that firemen had to come out for a burnt
pizza box especially this late at night," she said.
Mitchell said similar incidents happened last year;
in one room the residents would bur bread in their
microwave at least once a month.
All of the residents were allowed back in their apart-
ments at about 12:50 a.m.

Live blogging and the
final day of SG elections
It seems like everybody wants to procrastinate when they
get to college. Writing 20-page term papers the night
before they're due and cramming five minutes before an
exam is not only common, it's trendy.
Some might go so far as to call procrastination a UF
So we can understand why there are still so many
UF students who haven't voted in this Spring's Student
But as every good procrastinator understands, you
need to know your deadlines. And for the SG elections,
that deadline is today. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., students who
haven't already voted can cast a computerized ballot at any
one of 16 polling locations around campus.
We know that it can be tough to get to the polls, espe-
cially for students who live elsewhere in Gainesville. But
investing a little bit of time on campus to vote in this elec-
tion could pay huge dividends later on.
That's because in this election, you can support an initia-
tive to bring online voting to campus.
If that initiative passes, you may never again have to be
on campus to cast a vote.
Unite Party senatorial candidates and independent trea-
surer candidate Susan Henriques also need your support.
As an added bonus, we'll have our reporters online blog-
ging live from the Orange & Brew as the SG election results
are announced. The blogging will start at 10:30 p.m. and
continue until the results are announced at midnight. You

The Master Plan
O n Monday, the
mously voted to send UF
officials a series of polite
suggestions meant to alter
the Campus Master Plan.
Among the suggestions
was the request that UF
freshmen not be permitted
to have cars on campus.
But unfortunately for
them, the suggestions appear
to be totally nonbinding.
At least for the time be-
ing, they mean squat
So why should you care?
Because we're heading
into the March 7 municipal
elections, and the city's sug-
gestions offer some clues
about how the commission-
ers feel about students.
For example, one of
the suggestions was for
UF to increase its on-
campus housing. On that
topic, Commissioner Warren
Nielsen opined, "A really
great university is not go-
ing to house its students
in single-family neighbor-

Bans on gay adopt
From time to time, I'll listen to debates about the nature
of homosexuality; is it a choice or a bit of biological
coding over which the person has no control? And
when I listen, I laugh because there isn't a more ridiculous
dispute in modem American discourse than this one.
To consciously choose to be gay in America is tocon-
sciously condemn oneself to castigation and discrimi-
nation from one's own politicians. Gay Americans, an
indisputably loyal and productive group of citizens, have
been viciously and unabashedly targeted by their elected
representatives to a degree America hasn't seen since the
days of Jim Crow.
So, it was not surprising when the Republican Party suc-
cessfully used gay marriage as a wedge issue in 2004. And so
we should not be surprised by the rumblings that in the 2006
mid-term elections American homosexuals will once again
be the target of legislative hatred.
This year, the target of the right wing's wrath is the human
instinct to raise and foster children. On Feb. 9, members of the
Ohio Legislature introduced Ohio House bill 515, which says
in part that a person cannot adopt a child if "the individual is
a homosexual, bisexual or transgender individual."
At the moment, Ohio is the only state facing such odious
legislation, and news reports indicate that the bill is unlikely
to pass. House Speaker Jon Husted, a Republican, deserves
credit for crossing partisan barriers and correctly labeling the
But according to a story in USA Today on Feb. 20, conser-
vatives in 16 states, including Ohio, are attempting to pass
laws or place initiatives on the November ballot that would
ban homosexuals from adopting children or becoming foster
parents. Florida is actually ahead of the nation on this; the
state bans homosexuals from adopting children, though not
from becoming foster parents.
The Bare Truth
These proposed laws are dearly
wise pieces .of legislation, as the
number of children requiring adop-
tion or foster care keeps declining,
while the number of able adults
who are willing to be foster parents
just keeps skyrocketing. Why, every
day we read stories of foster care
agencies being forced to turn away
"Leave it to Beaver" mother-father
combinations because there are just
too many of them acting as foster parents.
And if you believe that, I've got some prime oceanfront
property in Kansas I want to sell you.
But these attempts, abhorrent as they are, bring a certain
awful clarity to the political landscape. There's no longer any
realistic way to spin certain elements of the Republican Party
as anything but hateful and cruel. There's no longer any way
to justify gay bashing as a defense of family values.
You might be good natured enough to take extreme con-
servatives at their word, trusting that they sincerely believe
that an orphanage is a better home than one built by a gay
couple. Even in that interpretation, those conservatives are
nearly delusional in the extreme. But if you're inclined to be
cynical about politics, and you believe that this entire trend is
an attempt to forge a wedge issue for November, then you're
looking at a party who will happily toy with the lives of
thousands of children for political gain.
In 2004, the Republican Party managed to kick around
gay Americans and secure victory. If they can do it again
in 2006, it will say more about America than it will about

Letters to the :_
State should address MD shortage first
The Florida Board of Governors is facing
one of the most important decisions it will
be asked to make whether to approve the
proposals for new colleges of medicine at the
University of Central Florida and Florida
The Board's decision should be based
upon whether Florida needs and can justify
these two programs, which one board mem-
ber estimated would cost $500 million.:
Both 'universities contend that Florida
needs more physicians, and that is undoubt-
edly true. The basic question is how this need
can best and most cost-efficiently be met.
Surprisingly, little public attention has
been given to a study of the issue conducted
by the Council for Education Policy Research
and Improvement. The council is a citizen
body for independent policy and research
created by the Legislature to "conduct and
review education research."
The council recognized the need for
more physicians in Florida and concluded
that increasing residency positions is a less
expensive and more immediate option for
the state to increase its number of practicing
The council then made the following three
The state of Florida should first pursue
a policy of creating and expanding medical
residency positions in the state.
The expansion of medical school capacity
should be pursued only after policies to im-
mediately address a physician shortage have
When expansion of medical school ca-
pacity is pursued, the options of expanding
existing medical school capacity, establishing
regional partnerships and establishing new
medical schools should be prioritized based
on cost efficiency.
It would appear rn'..s appropriate for the
Board to weigh heavily the council's report
in making its decision concerning additional
medical colleges for Florida.

Mastrodicasa fit to be on city commission
I have attended all but two of the City
Commission candidate forums. It is evident
to me that Jeanna Mastrodicasa's broad
range of experience, her knowledge of the
issues facing the city, and her calm de-
meanor and compassion would make her
an excellent city commissioner. She has my
Candidate has confusing, checkered past
For a man who declares himself not to be a
career politician, Jared Hernandez sure has a
lot to answer for.
A year ago, Hemandez campaigned for
Senate with individualized fliers promising
the expansion of law school parking into
Corry Village and Fraternity Row. Even if
Hemandez did research on the issue, he still
failed to so much as mention the issue in
Senate, much less bring any legislation to the
floor. It was simply a ploy to draw voters. We
must only ask ourselves.which of his platform
issues are genuine and which only serve to
lure in open-minded voters.
Jared also paid to republish letters he wrote
in the Spring of 2004 that criticized the Greek
community proudly proclaiming that
he stood by his past. Ironically, this was the
same candidate who used engraved bottles
of Crown Royal as gifts during his term as
Interfraternity Council president.
In addition, how can a person who claims
they want to unite our campus through posi-
tive leadership use such foul and inappropri-
ate language as Hemandez did during this
month's emergency Senate sessions? The next
week, however, Jared trotted himself to the
Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter meeting, apologiz-
ing for his statements because to do so once
again became politically convenient.
Hernandez has a lot to own up to. His con-
fusing, hypocritical record demonstrates his
commitment to bold talk with little action.
Cullin looks down on the average student
I would like to extend a thank you to
Allison Cullin. Her comments on Monday
gave me a great deal of insight into myself.
Just think, all this time I've gone-through
.my life believing myself to be normal when in
actuality I am, in fact, a superhero. After all,
according to her, no normal student would
have ever been able to accomplish such feats
as finding the SG offices or looking on the
bulletin board to discover open Senate seats.
No normie could have filled out the applica-
tion himself, and God knows no mere mortal
could have ever been made a senator under
the tyranny of Lord John Boyles. Only I, as a
superhero, was able to such things.
So again, thank you, Allison.
You have truly opened my eyes to how
special I really am. I hope, in turn, Allison has
opened all of your eyes as well. As far as she's
concerned, you're all a bunch of incompetent
morons who can't tie your own shoes with-
out her help.

Some unable to castballot on initiative
POLLS, from page 1
Tuesday, some of them tried to use that Web site
instead of the correct one for the actual election.
"We spent 20 minutes trying to find out the
problem, but there was no problem," Tambling
While the poll workers tried to pinpoint
the issue, students who voted at Hume Hall at
about 9 a.m. had to use paper ballots instead of
Student Sen. Ryan Nelson, a Unite sup-
porter, said a student told him he was not able
to vote on the online initiative because it was
not an option on the paper ballot.
SG Supervisor of Elections Erika Kane said
voters who were not allowed to vote on the
initiative would not be able to do so.
"I apologize," she said, adding that once
students have cast their ballot, they cannot re-
turn to their ballot for security reasons.
However, she said the paper ballot issues
have been resolved in case they are needed
Some students also expressed concern about
the integrity of their ballots because most com-
puters were next to one another without parti-
tions between them.
"If [students] are concerned about the secu-
rity, they can move the computers and address
it to the poll workers," Kane said.
Other polling locations that-experienced de-
lays included the Reitz Union, Broward Hall,
Norman Hall, Bryan Hall and Beaty Towers.
When computers did not work in Beaty, poll
workers were forced to issue paper ballots, but
those eventually ran out.
By 11:30 a.m. all polling locations were
working as planned, Kane said.
Kane said she does not expect any problems
"There has never been an election without
minor problems," she said. "But the elections

Moss to take center stage
in O'Dome curtain call
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
The time has come for Uncle
Moss to move on. Not that he's go-
ing to make a big deal out of it.
When the Gators face Georgia in
the O'Connell Center at 7 tonight,
Adrian Moss will finally make his
O'Connell curtain call, his final bow
on Senior Night, ending a journey
that began six years and 868 miles
"I'm only old in college basket-
ball," said Moss, the Gators' lone
senior. "A lot of people would want
to be 24 again."
"It's not about me; it's
about getting this win."
UF senior forward
The fact that it is his final home
game, however, is probably a bigger
deal to everyone but him.
"I'd like to start Moss," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "Unless he says
he doesn't want to start, I'd like to
It doesn't appear that Donovan
will get his wish.
"It's a big game; we've got to
keep everything normal," Moss
said. "Just do what we've been do-
ing the last 20-some-odd games. It's
not about me; it's about getting this
A native of Humble, Texas, Moss
was voted Most Valuable Player
his senior year of high school, but
he elected to spend a year at Fork
Union Military Academy, where he
was one of five players who later
went on to Division I schools. Moss'
odyssey eventually led him to UF,
making him just the third Texan to
suit up for the Gators. And for Moss,
Gainesville was a welcome change
from the dreary life of Fork Union.
"[I was] a kid in a candy store, a
guy who's just been let out of jail,"
Moss said. "I could do what I want
when I wanted. Nobody was telling
me when to eat. I had an abundance
of girls around. I had the sun, and I
could wear my normal clothes. So to
step on this campus was a beautiful
And. though Moss is in college
to play basketball and get a busi-
ness degree, which he's on track to
complete in August, he might want
to consider a career in politics.
While-most athletes are ready-
made to give reporters a stock
answer, Moss is a breath of fresh
air and has been nicknamed "The
Quote" for his propensity to say
anything when there is a tape re-
corder in front of him.
This season alone, those topics
have ranged from practical jokes, his
musings on Saturday morning car-
toons and teammates' nicknames.
Some of those nicknames are
conventional, such as. "C-Rich"
for Chris Richard or "Horf" for Al
Horford; some of them are a little
more out there.
Moss started referring to UF
point guard Taurean Green as
"Beanie Baby" during a pick-up
game, before Green had ever suited
up for the Gators, and also took
to calling former walk-on Seth
"[Green] hates it with a passion,"
And though Moss is able to dish
it out, he's also able to take it. He has
been dubbed "Granddad," "Boss"
and, most infamously, "Uncle Moss"
by his much younger teammates.
Moss is averaging just 3.6 points
and 2.1 rebounds in his final cam-
paign but believes that his legacy is
about much more than statistics.
"That's just who I am," Moss
said. "I'm not going to go put up big
numbers. I'm just going to go do the
dirty things and do what it takes to
win, and that's honorable enough."
Though Moss wants to play at
the next level, he ultimately wants
to get into coaching. He believes his
ability to relate to his teammates and
his understanding of the game will
make him successful in the coaching
profession one day.

Forward Adrian Moss, UF's lone senior, will play his last game in the O'Connell Center tonight. Moss said
he's learned enough to make him a great coach during his five seasons at UF.
ABRAMSON, from page 16
second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
In an issue of Sports Illustrated earlier this
season, one pro scout said Al Horford could be
a top-five pick in the NBA Draft. If that's even
remotely true, the Gators should be crushing
teams inside, especially with Joakim Noah
playing on another level. Instead, the Gators
gave up 17 rebounds to some guy named
Hendrix (Richard, not Jimi) from Alabama.
So blame the team's youth or maturity,
right? Bad idea. Its flawed logic.
Donovan has credited the athletic pipeline
flowing through his locker room for providing
the Gators with wisdom beyond their 20 or so
years. When you're raised by Yannick Noah,
Sidney Green or Tito Horford, you learn a
thing or two about survival on the big sports
stage, so maturity doesn't seem to be an issue.
But perhaps maturity and youth are two
different beasts to conquer? That doesn't ap-
ply to the Gators either because they're really
not that young anymore.
Horford, Green and Brewer played sig-
nificant roles last year, and they already have a
SEC Tournament title under their belt as well
as NCAA Tournament experience and nearly
two full conference seasons packed away.
Noah's the only key player that truly
hadn't been thrown into the grind before this
season, and he's the team MVP right now.
Who knows, maybe the Gators are merely
in a slump, and they will reawaken just as
March Madness rolls around.
But if they do lose another game before the
NCAA Tournament begins, I beg you, coach:
Just raise your voice once, for old times sake.
After five seasons under
Donovan at UF, Moss said that he
has his master's in coaching. And
though the bigwigs in Criser Hall
might not agree, he said he will
work toward his doctorate during
the remainder of his final season.
"I'm going to be a heck of a coach
one day," Moss said. "And I'm go-
ing to put Coach Donovan on the
schedule, too. If [UE assistant] coach
[Anthony] Grant is coaching some-
where, I'm going to put him on the
schedule, too. And I'm going to run
up the score; no mercy"

FSU outlasts nonchalant Gators
By BRYAN JONES
S Fo -Florida State, this was a big
It was a chance to defeat their
biggest rival in their own building,
to avenge an NCAA Super Regional
loss from a season ago and to make
a statement to the college baseball
For No. 5 UF (8-4), it was a
Tuesday ballgame and an opportu-
nity to improve.
With the Gators staying true to
their midweek gameplan, the No.
10 Seminoles (11-1) were too much
for a UF team minus its star player,
defeating the Gators 6-4 at a soldout
"Ihad an opportunity to hit
some bajls to score some
runners tonight, and I didn't
;do the job."
All-American first baseman Matt
LaPorta sat out for the fourth straight
game with an injured oblique muscle,
hoping to get ready for the weekend.
But not having him in the lineup
may have hurt the Gators even more
than -.ey initially expected.
Trailing 6-3 in the seventh inning,
outfielder Gavin Dickey, who was
hitting in LaPorta's No. 3 spot in the
lineup, hit into a bases-loaded double
play to end the inning. It was the sec-
ond time in the game Dickey hit into
a rally-killing double play.
"I guess I just have to hit the ball
somewhere else," Dickey said. "I had
an opportunity to hit some balls to
score some runners tonight, and I
didn't do the job."
Catcher Danny Diaz was the MVP
for the Seminoles. Just 2 for 39 on the
season coming into the game, Diaz
went 2 for 4 with two RBI and was
robbed of a third hit on a diving catch
by Dickey in center field.
"I just kind of relaxed and looked
at video yesterday and went back to
what I was doing earlier," Diaz said.
"I know I can do it. To get out there
and prove it to everybody; confi-
dence is a huge part of the game."
The Gators pitched junior college
transfer, Kris Gawriluk, who was
making his first career Division I
FSU went with their ace, former
closer Tyler Chambliss.
Gawriluk cruised early in the
ballgame, holding a 1-0 lead into the
But after getting through the
first 3.2 innings with no problems,
Gawriluk began to stumble. After
giving up a solo home run to FSU's
Dennis Guinn in the fourth, he was
nailed for three runs in the fifth and
was tageed with the loss.
"Mentally, I got a little out of it
[in the fifth inning]," Gawriluk said.
"When you are playing a great team
like this, you can't make mistakes."
Chambliss picked up the win,
allowing three earned runs in 6.1
"This is the whole reason I became
a starting pitcher," Chambliss said.
"I came in last year, and we were
already down ... so became a starter
this year for stuff like this."
stop babying UF
ennon and McCartney had it all wrong.
Because if all you need is love, then men
would gladly sacrifice trips to a game.for a
romantic snuggle and a night of "Sex and the City."
But sports aren't supposed to be about love, and if
Vince Lombardi were alive, I think he'd back up my
statement and throw me to the ground for 50 push-
ups. Sports are about blood, guts and a lot of sweaty
coaches yelling at their players and telling the public
how much their team stinks after a loss.
Billy Donovan used to be great at that. Sometimes,
he'd even take it a step further
and bash his team after a vic-
"That was about as poor
of defense on two guys as I've
ever seen," Donovan said of
his guards after a 23-point win
Andrew against Florida A&M in 2003.
Abramson These days, you get the feel-
Drew's Control ing Corey Brewer would have
email@example.com to get caught with a house full,
of assault weapons not ob-
tained legally for Donovan to
express any sort of anger.
"I was really proud of the way our guys played to-
night," said Donovan after UF's loss to Tennessee. He
went on to say: "We're young and inexperienced. The
bottom line is I'm not concerned about it."
Coach, I miss Billy the Mouth, the man who once
questioned Christian Drejer's ability to understand
English when we all knew the Dutchman was per-
fectly fluent in everything but driving to the basket.
Now, I feel like I'm sitting by a campfire singing
John Denver tunes while Adrian Moss bangs on a pair
of bongo drums. Matt Walsh, Anthony Roberson and
David Lee never had it this easy. When they had a bad
game, Donovan made it extremely dear to everyone
on the planet. This year, it seems like Donovan is treat-
ing the Gators for who they are, not what they have
the potential to be.
"For me, it's about growth and development," he
said after the Tennessee loss.
But in today's college basketball, most of the teams
are young and inexperienced. Syracuse's 2003 national
championship starting lineup included two freshmen
and two sophomores. Michigan reached two Final
Fours with a core of freshmen and sophomore players
in the early 1990s.
So why not hold this year's Gators team com-
plete with a starting lineup of four sophomores that
have a legitimate chance at the NBA accountable
for losing six of its last 11 games?
Because Donovan's seen too many of his players
dart Gainesville prematurely, so perhaps by keeping
the expectations low, his players heads will remain
deflated and free of NBA aspirations, at least this sum-
mer. But the Gators have the talent to make their run
now, maybe not to the Final Four but at least to the
