As March Madness draws to a close, the
madness in Gainesville is just beginning.
Police, local restaurants and bars are in-
creasing their staff in anticipation of a busy
Saturday night as the Gators take on George
Mason University in the Final Four.
But before the parties could even begin, UF
students received an e-mail signed from head
basketball coach Billy Donovan encouraging
them to "act in a safe and responsible man-
Some universities light bonfires after bas-
ketball wins, but UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said he doesn't think out-of-control and de-
structive fans are going to be an issue.
He.said Gators fans have a great reputation
and know how they should act.
Police are staffing extra officers but hope
fans participate in the festivities without be-
ing destructive or unruly, Gainesville Police
spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg said.
GPD feels prepared for Saturday's game,
Kameg said. GPD and University Police will
work together to ensure students stay safe
while having a good time, he said.
GPD's Party Patrol, which monitors
"drunken, noisy or disorderly conduct," will
have extra staffing for Saturday night, Kameg

Tom Angell, campaigns director for
Students for Sensible Drug Policy, said a

convictions from receiving financial aid is

lot and ruins hundreds of students' lives every
Since financial aid usually goes to under-
privileged students, the provision is inherently IIB
flawed because it inadvertently targets those
students who need the funds, Angell said.
He said it's also unconstitutional: The dou-
ble jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment I 01=
prohibits punishing people twice for the same b ,
crime, so after paying dues for a drug convic-
tion, students shouldn't be required to forfeit
their education money as well. k

takes a three-pronged approach that includes "
lobbying to repeal the law, finding plaintiffs
for the lawsuit and changing campus drug
policies. Police shouldn't be called when a
student is found with drugs on or off campus,
Angell said. He thinks universities should in-
stead focus on prevention through education.

Approved UF master plan seeks coordination with city
By DOMINICK E. TAO
The UF Campus Master Plan for 2005-2015
was unanimously approved Thursday by a
committee of the Board of Trustees, UF's high-
est governing body.
But members didn't include some sugges-
tions from the city that would have restricted
student driving and increased student fees.
The Committee on Finance & Facilities ap-
proved the plan, which outlines many goals
UF will pursue in the next 10 years, after about
10 minutes of discussion.
The plan lays out the future of transpor-
tation and housing for UF students. It also
outlines the anticipated growth of UF and
its surrounding areas. Ed Poppell, UF's vice
president of finance and administration, said a
big part of the plan was to foster coordination
with the university and the city.
However, trustee W.A. "Mac" McGriff
"Without the students there
wouldn't be a city of Gainesville."
UF student body president
I said the intergovernmental cooperation
wasn't at its best.
"The city of Gainesville is going out of its
way to pick on our students," McGriff said.
He said the city's proposed changes in
parking regulations unfairly target students.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg
echoed McGriff's concerns.
"Without the students there wouldn't be a
city of Gainesville," Goldberg said.
The city of Gainesville, Alachua County
and other agencies reviewed the master plan
before it was approved Thursday. A team led

UF governing board discusses sports, academics
Final Four will up applications Many irate about UF admissions
By LINDSEY FRANCO
Everyone is riled up in this week's Final
Four frenzy even members of UF's high-
est governing body, the Board of Trustees.
The trustees, kicking off two days of
meetings on campus Thursday, chewed
over travel plans to Indianapolis between
their usual humdrum policy discussions.
"George Madison, George Mason, what-
ever," said Manny Fernandez, the board's
chairman, of the men's basketball team's
opponent in Saturday's game.
High costs prevented the board from
buying airtime for the university's Gator
Nation ad during the Final festivities, but
the trustees were still eager to use UF's mo-
ment in the sun to bolster the university's
According to a statewide opinion survey,
UF's best-known attribute is its athletics.
Academics crept behind in second place.
Joe Hice, UF's associate vice president for
Marketing and Public Relations, conducted
the survey before UF made it to the Final
"[The Final Four] reflects really positively
on the university as a whole," Hice said.
UF President Bernie Machen said a good
athletics program typically prompts more
applications to the school. After the Gators
football team won the national title in 1997,
the number of applications soared, Machen
"The one place it
is sure to impact is in-
creased number of appli-
cations to the University
j-h of Florida just what
we need," Machen said,
following chuckles from
Machen the trustees.
UF officials are con-
cerned about the size of UF's large under-
The university may experience a return
of the "Flutie Effect," which is the belief that
advancing in sports spurs higher enrollment
and even higher donations. The effect is
named after former Boston College football
quarterback Doug Flutie, whose success
prompted increased enrollment and dona-
tions to the university.
* UF OFFICIALS ARE TURNING
MANY LEGACY STUDENTS AWAY.
By LYNDSEY LEWIS
As UP aims to break into the upper
echelon of research universities, its in-
creasingly selective admissions process
is leaving throngs of applicants in the
dust, UF officials said Thursday.
The university's admissions process
was highlighted during a meeting of
the Board of Trustees Committee on
Educational Policy & Strategy.
"We're looking at around 24,000 ap-
plications with space for 6,500," said
UF Provost Janie Fouke, speaking about
freshman candidates for the upcoming
Of the 24,000 students who applied
for a space in UF's freshman class, about
13,000 are classified as "legacies."
"Legacies" are students with familial
ties to the university.
As larger numbers of applicants are
rejected, families are growing increas-
ingly irate, committee chairman Carlos
"I get people accosting me at cocktail
parties," he told the committee. "They
just come after you."
Still, committee members agreed
that UF's rising admissions standards
ultimately work toward the school's ad-
"I think having higher standards will
make our classes exponentially better,"
said Kim Tanzer, chairwoman of UF's
Faculty Serate and a trustee.
Alfonso suggested that in order to
appease disgruntled families, the com-
mittee should seek ways to reveal facets
of the admissions process and debunk
common myths about it.
"I think that we owe it to the people of
Florida to show them how we admit our
students," he said in an interview after

Fans hit the road
to the Final Four
By ADRIAN RUHI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Fourteen hours is a long time to spend on the road. Then
again, Gators don't often congregate in Indianapolis.
Pat Kane, a UF economics junior and dedicated Gators
basketball fan, sat in his tall office chair at the UF Digital
Library Center as he asked his boss for two days off for his
impending trip to Indianapolis to attend the NCAA 2006 Final
Four, where the Gators play against George Mason University
on Saturday. If victorious, the Gators will play for the NCAA
"My lovely boss allowed me to attend the Final Four be-
cause she's such a big Gator basketball fan," Kane said jok-
ingly. "She said I still have my job when I get back as long as I
don't get arrested."
IKane said he has been to every Gators basketball home
game since starting at UE After Sunday's victory over
Villanova University sent the Gators to the Final Four, he
quickly booked a hotel room 20 miles outside of Indianapolis
and began planning the long road trip.
"You know, 860 miles of pavement is a lot
for one day," he said.
Kane will notbe alone in his red two-door
Acura Integra. His friend Jason Doughlin, an
English senior, will be with him.
The two will depart at 2 a.m. Friday from
Gainesville, drive through Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky
and try to arrive in Indianapolis by Friday night. Doughlin
said the trip will be made at the expense of school and work,
and it will cost him a lot of money.
"I spent so much money on Spring Break that I had to ask
my mom to help me pay for this month's rent and my ticket
to the game," he said. "But this is a once-in-a-lifetime oppor-
tunity, and you never know when we'll make the Final Four
Doughlin said they will be driving in shifts and will only be
stopping for bathroom breaks and food. Most of their money
will be used for gas, and they hope to minimize food costs.
"We can't afford to wine and dine ourselves, so it'll be
McDonald's and Burger King for a couple of days," he said.
"We will be looking for any spot that permits Gators to eat

It's pronounced Had-ge-lo-g-o.
When they come to get you, Alex Hadjilogiou will
hear your troubles, sit through the litanies of accusa-
tions against you and remain neutral.
He was elected Honor Court chancellor without
opposition during this Spring's Student Government
If a student is accused of dishonesty by a profes-
sor, the student can opt to have his argument heard
by the Honor Court, a student judicial board.
As chancellor, Hadjilogiou presides over the stu-
dent's hearing similar to a trial
and then presents the decision
of the jury as a recommendation
to the Dean of Students Office,
Hadjilogiou, 30, is a second-
year law student. He obtained a
bachelor's degree in public rela-
tions at UF before spending four
Hadjilogiou years in the U.S. Army.
During his Army years, he specialized in counter-
narcotics and counter-terrorism operations.
When the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks occurred,
Hadjilogiou was receiving his military intelligence
training at an Arizona base. He remembers feeling a
great responsibility to prevent future attacks.
"[Preventing them] was going to be our reality,"
Hadjilogiou, the son of a Greek mother and
Cypriot father, said being in the Army was a way to
give back to the United States for giving his parents
great opportunities. But after four years, Hadjilogiou
was ready to return to Gainesville and pursue a law
degree something he had always dream of doing.
He applied to the Levin College of Law while he
was still in the Army, and as a consequence, he had
a letter of recommendation from a U.S. congressman
and a Pentagon official, "which probably helped me
get into law school," he said.
In the future, Hadjilogiou said he wants to prac-
tice criminal law and make time for the beach, his
"I am a person that always wants to find a good
balance in life being serious and at the same time
having fun," he said.

ing had the biggest turnout ever, said
Barbara Hood, organizer and spokes-
woman for the event.
This week's event was a kickoff for
National Library Week, which begins
The Read-A-Thon drew in locals
like Kuntz, a librarian at the Florida
Center for Library Automation in
Gainesville. She selected her favor-
ite short story, "The Cathedral" by
Raymond Carver, because it has stuck
with her over the years and became
a basis for the writing she does. This
year, 55 readers signed up and more
than 850 people attended, Hood esti-
mated. Students, faculty and various
volunteers read along with a few
notable community leaders. She said
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan came to read
Tuesday was designated children's
literature day and had a significant
turnout of more than 350 adults and
Dina Benson, a member of the UF
library staff, said Tuesday the children
were screaming their excitement and
loved being read to.
She said they would shout out the
words to some of the more familiar
books and could hardly sit still and
contain their joy.
A gap in readers occurred Monday.
Benson said a man from the audience
jumped up, grabbed a book and read
to what turned into a very enthusiastic
crowd. He was cheered loudly after
"It is cool to see such a diverse
group come together under the UF
umbrella," Benson said.
Hood said the.co-sponsors for the
event were Five Star, WUFT-TV, Publix
and Sweet Dreams of Gainesville. Five
Star Pizza donates 20 pizzas a day, and
she pointed out that the pizza disap-
peared quickly. Publix donated a $50
gift card for paper goods and lemon-
ade mix. On Tuesday, cookies were
also available for the children. Sweet
Dreams donated homemade vanilla
and chocolate ice cream for 100 people.
WUFT-TV donated a new book to each
of the "Baby Gator" children who
came to the event Tuesday.
The program was created because
the libraries wanted to do something to
celebrate reading collectively, she said.
Even through sounds of construc-
tion coming from -Library West, the
reading went on. Hood said some
of the stories border on being more
controversial, but that none have been
too offensive for the audience. She
said there is a lot of diversity in what
is read and there are never repeats in

So the Gators are in the Final Four.
They'll be playing this weekend. And that can only mean
one thing: It's time to stock up on beer and Cheez-Its.
But before this weekend's revelry can begin, we'll have to
suffer through one more long day of classes.
We know the anticipation is killing you. If you're like us, you
can't wait to see the Gators stomp George Mason University
into the ground.
So to help get you through this one last day of classes, we've
compiled yet another list of the week's top stories in a section
that we like to call...
We begin by issuing a don't-you-know-this-only-hap-
pens-every-six-years DART to professors holding exams next
The Gators basketball team will play in the semifinals
Saturday against George Mason, but if they win, as they are ex-
pected to, they will go on to play in the national championship
Monday. That definitely calls for a weekend-long booze-fest.
On the other hand, if we lose we won't lose we'll have to
spend all day Sunday and Monday rioting, flipping parked cars
and burning George Mason in effigy.
But either way, studying this weekend is definitely not on
Perhaps instead of having exams Monday and Tuesday, UF
should give us those days off -'Monday to watch the final and
Tuesday to shake off the wicked hangovers. We have a feeling
we're going to need it.
Continuing, we deliver a you-have-to-be-pretty-high-to-
set-Pasta-Roni-on-fire DART to SFCC student Mondo Luis
When Caminas' pot of Pasta Roni caught fire, did he worry
about putting it out? Of course not.
Caminas' first concern was taking care of the lit "kryp" he
was holding, and then stashing away his weed and bongs in
case the police showed up. The apartment filled with smoke,
and pretty soon the Alachua County Fire Rescue squad was on
"We could have some hellacious fires here if we aren't on top
of it," said Scotty Taylor, a firefighter for ACFR.
"Burning to death wouldn't be cool," said Caminas.
This wasn't Caminas' first brush with raging infernos; when
he was in the Army a few years ago, he'set his barracks on fire
when he forgot to take something out of the oven.
Caminas knows why he's so forgetful. "I've burnt too many
brain cells," he said.
Next, we bestow a what-a-way-to-end-a-relationship DART
to Terry Ray Cagle, an Ocala man, for lying to Marion County
Sheriffs about losing $60.
Cagle claimed that two men had robbed him of the money
at gunpoint, returned his wallet and then forced him to drive
into the Ocala National Forest, where he disarmed them and
The Marion County Sheriff's Office, somewhat unsurpris-
ingly, was a little skeptical.
"The story just didn't coincide, and we knew something was
up," said Marion County spokesman Capt. James M. Pogue.
That's some damn fine police work.
They got the real story last Thursday when Cagle admitted
that, when he said two men robbed him of the $60 at gunpoint,
what he really meant was that he blew it all on exotic dancers at
Caf6 Risque, the infamous Micanopy strip dub.
So why the red herring? Apparently Cagle didn't want his
girlfriend to find out about his indiscretions.
So much for that.

T here is little doubt that Gainesville, being a college
town, goes through alcohol like crazy. For better
or worse, this is a natural state for many colleges
throughout the nation especially public state universi-
ties. Perhaps it is a flaw in society as a whole or maybe a
phase that all sociableyouth go through,but heavy alcohol
consumption is something that can be counted on in com-
munities with high proportions of independent youth.
Authority figures in these communities can be equally
relied on in their attempts to halt this behavior, and while
the motives behind our administration's attempts to de-
crease alcohol abuse at UF are undoubtedly amiable, the
methods it is using to address the situation leave much
to be desired. Between forums dominated by stuffy city
officials and banned beer advertising at concerts on cam-
pus, the administration's sobering campaign has been off
target at best and naive at worst.
The most recent step in this well-meaning but misguid-
ed campaign is an online course that will be, required of
students. The course will consist of a survey that will com-
pare the results from one student to the rest of the student
body to show them where their drinking habits sit in rela-
tion to their peers. The idea is that when a student notices
that their drinking habits are more involved than the rest
of the student body, they will be influenced to bring their
habits down toward the median.
But the blockades preventing this plan from being ef-
fective are numerous. For one, it is highly unlikely that all
students, particularly heavy drinkers, are going to report
their habits truthfully on an Internet form with their iden-
tifying information on it.
Student drinking often occurs in social situations with
a group of friends. And while influencing a single student
by confronting them with the facts of their drinking is
plausible, changing the attitude of a peer group of four or
five close friends is entirely more
Furthermore, it takes a stretch
of the imagination to believe that
.: oa the majority of the student body
will take the survey seriously.
Scott Gilton The lack of personal application
Scott Strikes Back many students put toward online
firstname.lastname@example.org courses is evidence enough that
by placing something online, you
often decrease the formality and
seriousness of it. Many students watch few or none of the
videos for their class lectures, and these actually influence
their GPA and academic future. A required online course
on alcohol abuse will only be viewed as another piece of
make-work to be finished with as little effort as possible.
Attempts to curb heavy drinking at our university,
while admirable, are doing little to foster faith in the con-
nection between the students and the administration. The
administration is behaving in ways that show a huge gap
in its understanding of how the social structure of the stu-
dent body functions.
Putting holds on students' transcripts until they've
taken alcohol courses paints the administration in a hostile
light, which makes it even harder to enact change within
our student body.
Decreasing alcohol abuse on the UF campus is an im-
portant goal for our school. But to achieve it, UF officials
need to stop banning alcohol advertisements and wasting
money on useless Web sites. Instead of petulantly throw-
ing money at the situation, they need to attempt to join
students on our level and engage in the respectful com-
munication that 21-year-old adults expect.

UF at a disadvantage against Top 10
UF knows about contests.
We compete in many
venues and we have a tra-
dition of excellence of pride in
our work, of success on the play-
ing field, in the classroom and in
the laboratory. The drive to be
among the Top 10 public universi-
ties in the nation is nothing short
of a contest.
One of the characteristics of a
contest is that the winner must
perform better than the other folks
participating in the event. You
have to jump higher, play your
instrument more sweetly, emote
more completely, score more
points, make a more sophisticated
argument, publish articles that
have greater impact in short, be
better than the competition.
Now the trick is this: Many
of our competitions begin with a
level playing field. The players in
a chess match start with the same
number of pieces. The entrants
in an essay contest, the students
entering a design contest for a
building or a car or a bridge, the
pianist, the debate team, the fac-
ulty member vying for a teaching
award or a research grant one
might argue that in each contest,
all contestants begin with the
same raw materials and operate
under the same rules.
So talent should prevail, right?
We know how to play that game
But suppose the playing field
is not level. Suppose you begin
the contest with fewer resources.
Suppose you start the race ten
yards behind the other teams or
you play the piano with one hand
in a splint. That might describe
the challenges that we face at
Janie Fouke UF If you
Speaking Out study the
that underpin the rankings in the
"race" that Florida is in to become
a Top 10 public university, you
will find that by many metrics
we are already there. But there
are a couple of key places where
In addition to a qualitative
peer assessment, the rankings
generally evaluate the quality of
the undergraduate students and,
our ability to help them attain
their degree, the financial resourc-
es per student, the rate at which
the alumni give back to their alma
mater and the resources available
to the faculty.
Our entering students are
among the strongest of any pub-
lic university in North America.
They graduate at a higher rate
than predicted and in this ele-
ment we beat all but seven public
schools in the nation. Our fresh-
man retention rate is already in
the top ten. Go Gators!
Another set of elements
revolves around the degree to
which our alumni support us.
You will be proud to learn that
we already rank among the Top
10 public universities with respect
to alumni giving rank and the
annual alumni giving rate. Go
Where are our challenges?
Where do we start from behind
the block? Two areas: financial
resources per student and faculty
The degree to which our bud-
get is not sufficient to address
instructional obligations is a
concern. We will need to improve
there to rise in the rankings.
The faculty resource issue
is a huge challenge. Here our
problems are class size, student-
to-faculty ratio and faculty sala-
ries. Anyone who had ever been
closed out of a class knows the
issue associated with UF taking
in more students without also
having the resources to hire ad-
ditional faculty members.
The rate at which the student
body has grown over the last de-
cade has far exceeded the rate at
which the faculty size has grown.
We need to address this to move
into the Top 10. While we rank
50th among national universi-
ties and 15th among public uni-
versities, we rank 120th on the
"faculty resources" element a
If we are to advance in the
"rankings race," we have to rec-
ognize that we must compensate
for our financial disadvantage.
Does anyone remember the Avis
rental car slogan from twenty
years ago: "We Try Harder!"
You can count on the UF ad-
ministration to work to garner
more resources for you fac-
ulty and students alike and we
commit to steward the resources
that we have to the best of our
This being said, it's important
to realize that Top 10 status is not
really the goal. The goal is per-
sonal and institutional excellence.
Top 10 status is a by-product; it is
a symbol demonstrating that oth-
ers acknowledge our stature.

Professor was targeted
T he March 22 story, "UF
campus tor over race

UF events told about assistant
professor Marshall B. Jones and
the smear tactics used to deny
him tenure. Then UF President
Stephen C. O'Connell's admin-
istration tried to link Jones to a
This student was James D..
Harmeling, and I am his twin
brother. He shot himself while
he was a patient in the Shands
Psychiatric Unit on Jan. 22,
1967. He was 25 years old. He
was a 1965 UF graduate with a
master's degree in psychology;
the Freedom Party candidate
for Student Government presi-
dent in February 1965; leader
of the first UF tutorial program
for Gainesville minority youth
that same year; past president
of both the UF Student Group
for Equal Rights and Students
for a Democratic Society; and
past vice president of the
NAACP Youth Council.
Jim's suicide was only one
of three of the UF administra-
tion's ludicrous charges linking
Jones with my family. They also
charged Jones with causing my.
sister's marriage to a campus
activist and my biracial mar-
riage to an African-American
student at the University of

continued even after he joined
the Peace Corps and was sta-

Yes, he 'suffered a deep
depression after returning to
the United States from Africa
and was hospitalized for three
months before taking his own
But how could he have pos-
session of a handgun only a
couple of days after a near fatal
drug overdose in his hospital

were investigated. Instead,
Jones became the target of the
UF administration as they used
their lies to deny him tenure.

tivist years at UF are found

Bare undervalues math and reading skills
In response to Andrew Bare's Wednesday
column about the No Child Left Behind Act, I
am shocked at his assessment of the utility of
basic math and reading skills. It may be "obvi-
ous" to him that education in math and read-
ing will result in academic achievenrent only
in math and reading, but it is far from obvious
to me. Basic math and reading comprehen-
sion skills lay the groundwork for the study
of nearly every other subject, not to mention
the fact that they lead to higher paying, more
productive jobs in adulthood. I hardly think
our country's doctors, lawyers, scientists and
engineers would rate their studies in math
and reading as "short-lived" or "unimport-
ant." Considering how low the minimum
passage requirements for these tests are, if a
teacher needs extra time to prepare his or her
students, it could not be better spent. The sys-
tem is not perfect, but minimum proficiency
requirements are not a bad start.

Speaker wasn't too controversial for UF
It's been deeply disheartening to witness
the Alligator's recent hypocritical attempt to
call someone a racist, given this newspaper's
past, which is filled with bigotry and intoler-
ant cartoons against minorities. Perhaps even
worse is the amateurish reporting that has
been conducted recently by writers and the
Alligator editorial staff filling articles with
quotes taken out of context and negligently
falsifying information, such as reporting, 40
people showed up to an event, when it was
much closer to 100.
What I find truly newsworthy is that Ann
Coulter, a Zionist racist, is being brought
by Accent to speak here next week and no
headline stories are being written about
that. Coulter has gone on record referring to
blacks, Native Americans and Palestinians as
"savages" and has even stated that all Arabs
should be searched before boarding airplanes
- clearly blatant racism. An international
student organization brought one speaker to
this campus who openly spoke out against
the war crimes being committed by the Israeli
government, and now all of a sudden there's
an outcry that it was too controversial.
I think we really need to take 'a look at
what's taking place on this campus, because
the unfortunate message being sent to the
student body is that our Student Government
and supposedly independent media outlets
are choosing sides based on ideology.

Next May, both Matt and I will receive
our commissions into the U.S. Army as sec-
ond lieutenants. That is the great thing about
ROTC: It allows college students the ability to
serve in the military as well as attend a univer-
sity. When I came to college in Fall 2003, Ihad
no plans to serve in the military, but one day it
just clicked for me. I realized it was time for me
to step up and try to fill the shoes of the great
Americans that came before me and gave me
the chance to have a free life.
I believe that as Americans, we should
want to serve in the armed forces. But I don't
want to serve with anyone who doesn't want
to be there. Unlike Vietnam, today's Army
is comprised solely of volunteers all ready
to stand up and dp their duty. In two years,
when my boots are on the ground in Iraq or
Afghanistan, I will be proud to know individ-
uals like Matt Melone are over there with me.

An advantage to this game is that there isn't
an opposing crowd, and the police won't have
to deal with hostility or rivalry, he said.
Local restaurants and bars are also increasing
the number of employees working game night.
Many expect large crowds for the Final Four
game and are ordering more food.
Josh Czupryk, a public relations major at UF,
said he is planning to go to a bar with his friends
to watch the game.
"It's a more social atmosphere," he said. "You
feel as if you're a part of the community."
Gator's Dockside owner Jerry Roberts said
he expects Saturday will be one of the busiest
days of the year.
"We've actually put on more staff and or-
dered more food," Roberts said. "We've added
extra security to make sure everyone's safe and
having a good time."
Roberts said the restaurant increased its staff
by 20 percent for Saturday's game, and it has six
new televisions for fans. The restaurant ordered
the televisions before March Madness began.
The Swamp Restaurant has already received
calls asking about reservations, said Brooke
Davis, an office administrator. She said The

Tax help easy to find at UF
By SOOYEON KWON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students looking for a few
extra bucks to use toward their
summer vacation can look to
April 15, the last day to file 2005
federal income tax returns.
For those who didn't submit
their tax returns yet, here are
a few options students and
residents can use to get free tax
assistance to help relieve some
stress and confusion.
The UF law school's
Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance program, which is
composed of law student vol-
unteers,.helps with filing tax
forms for free to low-income
students and Alachua County
residents. The program has
been running for more than
eight years on campus.
"It's a good learning expe-
rience helping people," said
Jamie Rozzi, tax assistant and
a second-year law student. "It
helps for accounting students
to keep up on the yearly tax
changes by applying what
they've learned in class."
The law student volun-
teers are available Tuesdays,
Wednesday and Thursdays
until April 13 from 5 p.m. to 9
p.m. on the first floor of Bruton-
Geer Hall in the Levin College
Taxpayers who want to
get help from VITA should
bring necessary documents,
including 1098-T forms, Social
Security cards and a photo ID
for accurate and quick service.
"It helps for accounting
students to keep up on
the yearly tax changes
by applying what they've

Some foreign students who
have used VITA's service be-
fore recommend also trying
tax software programs or the
Internal Revenue Service Web
site for free online filing.
Close to the tax return
deadline, however, there can
be long waiting lines.
"I went there last year, but I
am not sure I will go this time
or not," said Risa Patarasuk,
a graduate student and an
instructor for the department
of geography. She added that
she found better help at the

dents' filing of tax forms, UF's

The IRS offers free online
filing programs for both low-
income residents and non-resi-
dents, and taxpayers can file
and pay electronically through
partnership companies, ac-
cording to the IRS Web site.
Free tax assistance is also
available at three Alachua
County Library Districts,
Millhopper Branch and Tower
Road Branch libraries.
The certified and experi-
enced AARP volunteers will
assist taxpayers until April 14,
and tax forms are also avail-
able at the library branches.

mation, call (352) 334-3934.

UF guard Lee Humphrey and Wisconsin-Milwaukee guard Boo Davis dive for a loose
ball during the Gators' 82-60 win in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
With Billy Donovan's dinner
churning in their stomachs, UF's
starting five rode back to campus in
Lee Humphrey's truck.
UF's four sophomores -Taurean
Green, Corey Brewer, Al Horford,
and Joakim Noah had already
forged a special relationship by this
point of the preseason. So it sudden-
ly became a moment of extended
camaraderie when Humphrey, the
soft-spoken junior, spilled his con-
"Nobody said a word for like
five minutes," Noah recalled. "We
were just looking down the road
and Humphrey was like, 'We're
going to be good. We're going to
be really good one day.' And I was
like, 'You're right. You're right
The rest is history, or becom-
ing so with every passing day. But
while the five players have gelled on
the court, Humphrey continues to
dance a different jig. At the forefront
is the most obvious.
The media, with its crush on
the sophomore class, has dubbed
those players the Fab Four and the
'04s. And in the background sits
Humphrey, left behind from the
"I guess you could say I'm
more low-key or whatever."
And it continues off the court.
Not only do the Fab Four live to-
gether but they party together as
well. As for Humphrey? He might
watch "Star Wars," read the Bible or
just hang out with some friends.
"We play around with him like,
'Lee, we've got to take you out. We
have to take you out to the dubs,
show you -around,'" Horford said.
"But he's not like that."

UF to face improved Vandy
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
The last time the UF baseball
team faced Vanderbilt, it clinched a
Southeastern Conference title. This year,
the Gators will meet the Commodores
just hoping to remain in contention.
Tonight, No. 15 UF (18-11, 2-4 SEC)
begins a three-game weekend series
against Vanderbilt (17-8, 5-1 SEC) in
hopes of rebounding from last week-
end's series sweep to South Carolina.
The Gamecocks closed out the three-
game set with Sunday's 21-4 blowout
Even with the Gators reeling,
Vanderbilt has another reason to antici-
pate the series.
"We went up there last year and were
fortunate enough to become SEC cham-
pions," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"You know that's an added incentive
for them, I'm sure."
But Vanderbilt isn't the same squad
as the one that was swept by the Gators
in late May of 2005.
This year's SEC Eastern division
is stacked with highly touted teams.
Vanderbilt, ranked No. 17 by Collegiate
Baseball Newspaper, could still be con-
sidered one of the weaker teams in the
But the Commodores, who are tied
for first in the SEC,
have the Gators' at-
"If you look at their
record, Vandy is defi-
nitely the best team in
the SEC right now," UF
McMahon shortstop Adam Davis
said. "They battled us
hard last year, and I'm sure they'll battle
us hard this year."
Going by the polls, Vanderbilt doesn't
appear as threatening as top-10 teams
like South Carolina and Arkansas, UF's
first conference opponent of the season.
But while the Gators were busy get-
ting thrashed in Columbia, S.C., dur-

"No. Bottom line no," Moss said.

Championship game. He left an hour
A knowledge of Humphrey's home-

Humphrey, with his ever-present smile,
adopted etiquette and Christianity.
Says Humphrey of his current social
life: "I guess you could say I'm more
low ey or whatever."
.Sometimes it's the same way
on the court. As the Gators head to
the Final Four, Noah's dunks and
Brewer's slashing cuts to the basket
dominate the headlines. Never mind
that Humphrey broke Anthoriy
Roberson's single-season school
record for three-pointers just three
games ago. He has hit 105 threes and
leads the SEC with a 45.6 shooting
percentage from beyond the arc.
He also now holds the UF record for
most three-pointers made in an NCAA
Tournament game after draining six
against South Alabama. Don't forget
that Humphrey separated his left
shoulder earlier this season after falling
from his bicycle. Now
he's on cruise control.
Men's "I think as a shooter
Basketball' you just have to [fight
and shoot with confi-
dence and keep going even if you miss
some," Humphrey said.
The junior might be even sharper
inside the classroom. His 3.74 GPA in
applied physiology and kinesiology
has made him SEC Scholar Athlete of
the Year. All of which only makes you
wonder: "What if Humphrey was a

Team rides momentum into Miss. State series
By BRIAN STEELE
A little more than three weeks ago,
the UF softball team already seemed de-
All the tournaments the Gators
had played prior to the Southeastern
Conference season seemed to be taking
In UF's SEC opener against No. 4
Alabama, it was swept, collecting just
five hits and one run while striking out
33 times during the three-game series. The
confidence they gained from defeating
then-No.1 Michigan seemed lost.
Even UF softball coach Tim Walton
described his team's mental state as "frag-
Now, almost a month later, that confi-
dence has returned.
The Gators have won 11 of their last
14, including three consecutive SEC series
wins, and the team's morale has skyrock-
UF (28-12, 7-5 SEC) will look to con-
tinue building its momentum this week-
end in a three-game series against No. 22
"We're 7-5, so we're competing," Walton
said. "And this conference is tough.
"To go on the road this weekend against
Mississippi State, we're going to have to
be on top of our game.
"They've got a great shortstop and a
good pitching staff. We're just going to
work hard to make things happen."
One of the key tools in UF's recent turn-
around has been the play of its freshmen.
For two consecutive weeks, a UF
player has been named SEC Freshman of
the Week. And freshmen outfielder Kim
Waleszonia and pitcher Stacey Nelson
have contributed sig-
nificant innings for the
through the season, and
they are already playing
junior pitcher Stacey
Stevens said. "We're not
worried about them at all when they get
"When Stacey Nelson goes out there
with bases loaded, that's who we all want
out there. We don't care about their age."
Walton's confidence in Waleszonia has
grown as the season has progressed, and
the freshman has hit at the leadoff spot
since Feb. 22.
"She's a gutsy kind of performer,"
Walton said. "I really like her style. She
does a lot of things, and if she's not swing-
ing very well, she can drop down a bunt."_
Even with the recent success, the polls
haven't acknowledged the Gators. After
being ranked No. 19 during the preseason,
UF has remained out of the top 25 since.
But that may not be a such a bad thing,
"That's what makes things fun," she
said. "Not having everyone in your corner
makes you give just a little bit more when
you come out here. We're going to fight
just like any other team."

host Alabama today at the Ring Tennis
Complex at 3 p.m.
"Our guys are disappointed and
down," 'UF coach Andy Jackson said.
"We've lost some confidence. What I'm
trying to do and what they're trying to do
is just to encourage themselves; we're get-
ting beat pretty dose."
Since UF's top player, freshman Ryan
Sweeting, was suspended for the rest of
the season, players have said attempted
compensations in the lineup have affected
the team's play. That could help explain
the Gators' loss of confidence.
To go along with the absence of the
Gators' No. 1 singles player are recent
4-3 losses to Tennessee, Georgia and
Arkansas, which have all but eliminated
the Gators from any shot at a regular-
season SEC championship. That was a
goal the team set out to accomplish at the
beginning of the season.
"It's very difficult to forget about
them," Jackson said. "And its very dif-
ficult to bounce back.
"But that's what sports are about, not
just in tennis but in any sport to getk
over the disappointment, to get back on
the horse and keep fighting."
UF sophomore Nestor Briceno has
been the one bright spot for the Gators as
of late. He has won his last seven outings,
with four coming off ranked opponents.
Briceno is also the only UF player who
is undefeated in SEC singles dual matches
this season (6-0).
UF is 27-18 all-time against the Crimson
Tide in a series that dates back to 1953.
Jackson said that any match in the SEC
is a tough one and added that his team
can't take any match for granted.
"We need a win badly," Jackson said.
"And I'm sure they need a win badly, so
somebody's going to be disappointed."
UF will follow up, hosting Auburn at 1
p.m. on Sunday.
WOMEN STAY ON THE ROAD: Coming
off a big win at Duke, the No. 7 UF wom-
en's tennis team will finish off its three-
match road trip this weekend.
First, the Gators (13-1, 6-0 SEC) will
play Alabama at 6 tonight in Tuscaloosa.
Then, UF will travel to Auburn to play

Brewer's weakened heart warms.
Though Corey's career is just
beginning to blossom, the 62-year-
old father of UF's star swingman
embraces every second of his son's
unlikely run to the Final Four.
The moment has captivated the
hearts of many UF parents, but it's
Ellis' heart that makes this run so

and trash collector.

After growing up near the
Kentucky border in the small,
poverty-stricken town of Portland,
Tenn., and spending the major-
ity of his life cultivating tobacco
farms, Ellis is closer than ever to
watching his son sign
a million-dollar NBA contract.
But Ellis would just as soon
continue his trash route if it means
Corey's best interests are served.
"My dad lives day-to-day. I
don't know how long he'll 'be

Forget the tie.
When 2 o'clock rolled
around each summer after-
noon, Jason found Corey in
the fields and brought him to
the basketball court.
"When I was 10 and he
was 5, that's when he started
playing," Jason said. "We'd
have only nine players, and

Ellis found an old hoop
and brought it home.
What seemed like a hin-

ultimately led the Gators to
the Final Four years later.

an unorthodox style, some-
thing Ellis credits to Brewer's

S led UF to the Elite Eight.
"That's his shot," Ellis
said. "I knew he was go-
S ing to make it when he
dribbled and then did
that whole fall-away. I
knew it was going in. If
he can make it on that
old _ini, pra.- -lid-
tice rim, I knew he has to
make it on a good, straight one."
Jasonbecame the greatest player
in Portlard's history, breaking all
the school records and eventually
earning a spot on the Tennessee-
Chattanooga basketball team. He
was even offered a scholarship by
George Mason, UF's opponent in
the Final Four.
"Corey was in seventh or
eighth grade, and [George Mason
coach Jim Larranaga] came in my
kitchen. Corey sat right there, and
Larranaga had no idea years later
he'd be playing my little brother in
the Final Four."
Corey entered high school five
years after Jason and made the re-
cords his own except one.
"The one record he didn't break
was dunks in a season." Jason
boasted. "I had 113 dunks. He had
When Corey visited Portland
last summer, he returned as the
town's biggest celebrity. It was a
far cry from his grueling mornings

to rekindle some old memories.

Alligator, Friday, March 31, 2006
You could have cut the tension in the air with a.knife.
The Gators locker room was tense before their
Minneapolis Regional Final against Villanova, far too
tense for UF coach Billy Donovan's liking.
So he decided to do something about it.
"It was quiet in the locker room, and he just started
screaming," sophomore Corey Brewer said. "That was
good for us. He was like 'Why is it so quiet?' He was
trying to get us loose. We like that."
Be it a motivational ploy or just an attempt to loosen
up his players, it worked, as the Gators defeated the
Wildcats 75-62 to send Donovan back to Indianapolis,
back to the Final Four for the second time during his 10
years as the captain of UF's ship.
The trip will be Donovan's fourth to the pinnacle
of his profession, as he played in the 1987 Final Four
for Providence as a fresh-faced 21-year-old from Long
Island and served as an assistant at Kentucky when the
Wildcats made it in 1993.
That makes him one of only two coaches in history,
Dick Harp being the other, that have played and coached
at a Final Four as both an assistant and a head coach.
But the fact that he now roams the sidelines rather
than darting around the court has done little to cool the
nerves of his biggest supporter.
"I was more nervous, to be honest with you, when
he played," Donovan's father, Bill said. "I'm a little
bit more calm now, because I always look at the play-
ers having to get it done, so. I'm a little bit more calm
when he's coaching, but not a lot. Believe me, I still get
churned up pretty good."
But despite all the success, the perception was out
there for thP longest time that Donovan was a reat

speaker, but I think it's more than that."

t e pieces together, and how
we matched off the court
The chemistry of that
particular class, the sopho-
more '04s, coupled with
other pieces has allowed the
Gators to grow up faster than
anyone had expected.
Even Donovan admitted
this season's UF team really
came out of nowhere. And
in contrast to the 2000 Final
Four team, he said he's able
to enjoy what his team has
"Looking back, I
was just so focused
on just doing my.

our team grow
and develop, but
I probably didn't

great moments I will always remember is, after beat-
ing Villanova, our trainer came to me and said, 'Thank
you coach. You don't know what this means to go to a
Final Four.' That is what I enjoy focusing on more now.
I want everyone to feel good about playing a part in this
and look forward to getting to that point where you cut
down the net."
.So there it was, after both the SEC Tournament vic-
tory and the NCAA Regional win: managers, trainers,
walk-ons and office assistants climbing the ladder to
snip off a little piece of the net to place in their freshly
produced championship cap.
And as serious as Donovan can come off, there is
also a sense of levity about him. When asked last week
where he would rank Villanova's Allan Ray and Randy
Foye in the annals of Big East guards, he quickly re-
sponded, "Probably behind me."
His players see it too.
"Coach has a good personality," UF guard Lee
Humphrey said. "We're with him a lot. We get to see
all the different sides of him. He is intense especially
at practice, but he is good at coming up with some
quick comments to throw out at us. He is-a fun guy to
be around, on and off the court. He's not always busi-
No longer "Billy the Kid," he's become Billy the
Man. Leader of a program, father of four, and still a dot-
ing son, as Bill is at every game, usually at the end of the
bench or next to the UF radio announcers.
"I'm happy for him, and I'm happy for everybody.
It's great," Bill said. "It's a special time and a special
thing for him, which you can't beat. The good Lord's
been good to him, believe me."
UF set for unlikely Final Four matchup
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
This matchup almost occurred in a Final
Four of a different sort.
While the Gators steamrolled Albany
and St. Peter's to get to the championship
round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic
back in November, Wake Forest had a little
more of a difficult time, needing overtime
to overcome a seemingly inferior George
Now, it's the Patriots and not the Atlantic
Coast Conference's Demon Deacons, who
have stunned the basketball world to ad-
vance to Indianapolis' RCA-Dome for the
There they will meet UF tomorrow night
in the national semifinals.
"I had a chance to watch George Mason
in that game, and I was very, very im-
pressed with their team all the way back in
November," UF,coach Billy Donovan said.
"They're a team like most teams this time
of the year; very well-balanced, five guys in
double figures in scoring."
Leading the Patriots in scoring is big
man Jai Lewis. A relatively short 6-foot-7,
Lewis is tied with Will Thomas as the tallest
player in George Mason's starting lineup.
But the lack of height didn't seem to mat-
ter when the Patriots took on Connecticut's
frontcourt, widely considered one of the
finestmin the nation.
Still, the Patriots lack depth.
After their starters, no player averages
more than 3.4 points per game.
And George Mason coach Jim Larranaga
didn't substitute for nearly the final 16 min-
utes of the UConn game.
"Now we're seeing a lot of people
wanting to come to the games.
People are spending almost a
thousand dollars on plane tickets
to see us play. In the beginning of
the season, they wouldn't come
to the games if they were free. It's
UF hopes to make the lack of depth an
"We press a. lot, and that forces, all five
players on the court to run around a lot be-
cause someone has to break to the.ball," UF
forward Chris Richard said: "So the post
players are running a lot more than they
are used to.
"Since we have four good post players
coming in and constantly running, it wears
them down a lot more because they aren't
used to that."
But aside from. a talented starting quin-
tet, the Gators also have something else to
deal with: the fact that George Mason has
become America's sweetheart.
And it's probably a safe bet that a ma-
jority of the estimated 43,500 fans in at-
tendance Saturday will be squarely in the
"We appreciate all the support we can
get, because we're going to need it," UF
forward Corey Brewer said. "We're playing
"It's us against the world."
.And that's how it's been for both the
Gators and the Patriots.
Fans suddenly coming out of the wood-
work when the team got hot.
"Now we're seeing a lot of people want-
ing to come to the games," Richard said.
"People are spending almost a thousand
dollars on plane tickets to see us play.
"In the beginning of the season, they
wouldn't come to the games if they were
free. It's crazy."
But even with the Gators' sudden na-
tional celebrity status, it gets even crazier
A girl and her mother followed center
Joakim Noah to his biological anthropology
class this week and sat through the entire
class so they could ask him to sign some t-
And he expects the support to follow the
Gators all the way to Indianapolis.
"Everybody's coming, man," Noah said.
"Everyboy's going to be over there.

Florida: Al Horford So., 6'8" 235 pounds, 11.4 ppg, 7.4 rpg
As Noah described it, Horford has been a "beast" lately. His
scoring and rebounding numbers have increased during the NCAA
Tournament, and he's doing a betterjob staying out of foul trouble
and is bodying up well on the defensive end.
George Mason: Jai Lewis Sr. 6'7" 275 pounds, 13.7 ppg,
Afirst-team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, Lewis is the raw
power that accompanies Thomas' agility. Lewis was the Patriots'
leading scorer against Connecticut but scored just 4 points against
Wichita State. He has the ability to bully his opponent inside and can
get players into foul trouble if he is aggressive.

SFlorida: Taurean Green o., 6'0" 177 pounds, 13.6 ppg,
r- 4.8 apg
Sure Green's offensive numbers are down, but histeammatessay he
Sis still doing a great job running the tear. If Mason looks to pressure
S- the ball, the load falls on Green to carry the team, and this is the type
of game and environment in which he has thrived on all season.
fi *:.- | B George Mason: Tony Skinn Sr. 6'1" 175 pounds, 12.6
i -ppg, 3.5 rpg
I-'i Before the Tournament, all anyone knew about Skinn was that he was
M w. suspended for the opener against Michigan State for punching a
-" Hofstra player below the belt. But this second-team All-Colonial player
i leads the team in steals, is Mason's best foul shooter and will handle
'A the ball when UF presses.
Florida: Lee Humphrey Jr., 6'2"192 pounds, 10.6 ppg,.456 3PT%
Humphrey draws the toughest defensive match-up here, which is probably a good thing for UF, as Coach Billy
Donovan has called him the team's best perimeter defender. Teams are definitely focusing on Humphrey in their
scouting reports, and his shots aren't falling at the rate they were earlier in the year. But Humphrey remains a
threat from behind the arc.
George Mason: Lamar Butler Sr. 6'2" 170 pounds, 12.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg
The straw that stirs Mason's drink, Butler is probably the only one on the team strictly playing a traditional
basketball position at shooting guard. Butler is the Patriots' top threat from beyond the arc, and he has won more
games in a George Mason uniform than anyone who has ever donned the green and gold.
So a trip to the title game comes down to this a match-up that no one could
have predicted just weeks ago. It might be easy to say UF should dominate this
game, but then again, so should have Connecticut, North Carolina and
Michigan State. The Gators bring more size, but the Patriots have made it
apparent that they will not be intimidated. UF is supposed to win this game. On
the other hand, Mason, the Tournament's No. 11 seed, has nothing to lose.
The RCA Dome crowd and most of the nation will be on Cinderella's side
