Coulter: Liberals are evil
By BOBBY EAGLE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Even the Gators' national championship
can have a political spin through the eyes of a
highly controversial conservative author.
"The really amazing part, to me, was
when Florida made it into the Final Four,
the Democrats didn't demand a recount,"
best-selling author Ann Coulter told a crowd
of about 1,100 at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts on Wednesday.
In a politically charged speech where she
referred to Ted Kennedy as a /'human diri-
gible," Coulter talked about why liberals are
"evil," and she promoted conservative ideals
on gay marriage, abortion and the war in Iraq.
An adoring audience laughed and cheered
between Coulter's sarcastic stabs at all things
liberal. One topic that generated a rousing
response was liberal-biased media.
Coulter adamantly bashed television news,
calling CBS "fake news" and saying the only
news channel conservatives can trust is Fox
News for now.
"Dan Rather is out, or as I say, 'One down,
16 to go,'" she said.
Another hot topic was political bias on col-
"A college campus is the last place you
should send someone to inculcate them [with]
the values of America," she said.
College professors hate free speech and rely
ontenure to allow them to say anything they
want without the threat of losing their jobs,
Coulter also addressed complaints about
generalizations made about Democrats.
"Why can't we general-
ize about Democrats?" she
asked. "People generalize
every moment of every
day. If you didn't general-
ize about that feeling in
your belly, you'd be peeing
in your pants all day."
On the war in Iraq,
outer Coulter said Democrats
focus too much on the lack of weapons of
mass destruction and don't understand what
true evil is.
Coulter's appearance was sponsored by
Accent, Student Government's speakers bu-
reau, at a cost of about $32,000, according to
Accent spokeswoman Nicole Trueblood.
Coulter's visit is a way to offer an alterna-
tive viewpoint to that of environmental activ-
ist Robert E Kennedy Jr., who spoke in March,
"We like to cause a little controversy and
debate, and this is definitely a speech to do
that," she said.

Students experienced multiple orgasms
outside the Reitz Union on Wednesday, thanks
to a little help from the Pride Student Union.
PSU invited participants to showcase this
typically private occurrence on T-shirts in the
first-ever Paint Your Orgasm as part of Pride
The event intended to educate people
about sexual health and safety, said event
director Ricky Cortez. PSU adopted the idea
from other colleges across the nation.
"We want to break that taboo with sexuality
whether you're gay, straight or on the fringes,"
Cortez said. "It's not something you normally
talk about. When you see a shirt with 'My or-
gasm is ...' on it, it gets attention."
Pride Awareness Month provided materi-
als, including 150 white T-shirts and colorful
tubes of paint, which allowed students to
paint shirts for free. They also had the option
of decorating construction paper.
"We're going to make sure we give every
T-shirt out and that every one has an orgasm
on it," Cortez said. He added they would get
more shirts if necessary.
Because coordinators wanted to integrate
more than painting, they teamed up with
UF organization Vox: Voices for Planned
Parenthood, which provided condoms,
pamphlets and other sexual information. A
Planned Parenthood representative attended
to address any questions or concerns.
UF student and Vox member Jackie Brenner
decorated a T-shirt with glitter and paint.
"I'm painting a woman's body with the
beauty of an orgasm radiating through her,"
Brenner said. "That's what I'm calling it:
Radiation of Beauty."

UF faculty salaries average 15% less than those at other universities
SALARY, from page 1
A statewide issue
Provost Janie Fouke said
UF faculty salaries are about 15
percent below peer institutions
within the Association of American
Fouke said lagging educator pay
is a statewide issue, with Florida
public school salaries ranking in the
bottom third of the country.
She said some professors choose
UF because it's a large, complex
university with an attractive climate
and the opportunity to find research
"If you can't offer people com-
petitive salaries, you are less likely
to be able to attract and retain new
faculty, even if there are benefits to
staying," Fouke said.
The state needs to provide recur-
ring funding for programs, she said.
"Our state is very, very good at
providing you one-time money, but
that doesn't help you keep faculty
salaries where they need to be," she
Interim Associate Provost for
Information Technology Marc Hoit
said while a $10,000 art grant from
the federal government or outside
agency is considered substantial, it's
comparable to a $150,000 grant for a
program like engineering.
Hoit said that despite salary dif-
ferences across departments, every
field of study has something to
contribute, whether it is helping
Alzheimer's patients with music or
discovering the connection between
art and learning.
The real goal of becoming a Top
10 university is to become a major
research provider in areas that are
important to humanity, he said.
"It's riot the department or col-
lege you are from but the areas you
work in," Hoit said.
Fouke said academics are largely
self-motivated, but it's easy for them
to get cynical if they are not reward-
ed for hard work.
"You have to make a really
good argument for someone that
it's worth it to stay here that it's
worth a lesser salary," she said.
But UF's 4500 faculty are con-
stantly tempted with other jobs.
"People want to raid your fac-
ulty," Fouke said.
'There are other things in life'
Mathematics associate professor
Miklos Bona said he feels he is "seri-
ously underpaid" for research and
teaching in his department.
Bona, a Massachusetts Institute
of Technology graduate, makes
"I'm a top-quality researcher, and
I am paid below the national aver-
age," he said. "What I do is above
the national average ... I would
leave if I got a better offer."
Bona said the math department's
faculty is "pretty good" but hasn't
hired any senior professors since
1999, the year he came to U. He
said the vast majority are assistant
professors mostly recent doctoral
graduates because they can be hired
Bona started his career at UF
"We cannot attract top-quality
graduate students," he said. "They
will go where the top research pro-
fessors are. This is a problem."
He researches combinatorics, or
structure measurement, and teaches
numbers and polynomials and ab-
Bona said the math department's
summer program is "ridiculously

ate students to teach high-level
courses like linear algebra and dif-
But Bona said of money, "For
a guy who does science, there are
other things in life."
The highs and lows: Comparing the salaries of UF professors who work year-round.
However, Bona said that in 2002
and 2003, the math department gave
out blanket raises of 2.5 and 2 per-
"That wasn't good for faculty
morale," he said.
Bona related the situation to
communist Hungary where he
grew up. One reason communism
failed, he said, was that "egalitarian-
ism destroys the motivation."
To keep his salary up, Bona
started writing books. He's written
three in the last four years.
But despite not being paid as
much as he believes he should be,
Bona said he enjoys studying and
teaching mathematics for more than
60 hours a week.
"I love every minute of it," he
said. "My wife says she never saw
someone so happy to go work."
One of his favorite lines is "the
world is not fair."
Associate Vice President Russell
Armistead said UF's College of
Medicine competes with other
schools for federal grants and con-
Computer & Info Science
Armistead, a health affairs ad-
ministrator, said the college receives
less than 10 percent of its funding
from the state. Therefore, to keep
department salaries competitive, the
program relies heavily on grants.
The college's funding will prob-
ably remain flat and may diminish
with inflation, he said.
"It's an expensive game that we
are in," Armistead said. "Research
never makes money."
Medical professors typically
teach or work in administration in
addition to practicing their craft.
Many medical professors bring
home about $200,000 annually but
can reach over $500,000 in educa-
Armistead said he doesn't think

"Dollars spent there have a mul-
tiple positive effect," he said.
Not done 'for the money'
Religion department Chairman
School of Music
Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff
and associate professor David
Hackett said there isn't always a cor-
relation between educational attain-
ment and a high salary. He noted
that Microsoft founder Bill Gates
never finished college.
Working in education provides
both financial security and fulfill-
ment, Hackett said.
"It's misguided for someone to
simply seek fulfilment in wealth
alone," he said. "That's one of the
great lessons of life."
Hackett said academia is an
alternate career track, almost "coun-
"I don't think we as professors
got into it for the money," he said.
"A certain amount of security is
needed. To be paid substantially less
than others who are academics, who

Professor salaries could affect
UF's future plans, Hackett said.
"It is true that as long as salaries
at the University of Florida lag sub-
stantially behind the universities
which we seek to emulate, then it
will be a big factor in preventing us

Build it up
developers get it wrong
There is a right way and a wrong way to develop
The right way looks something like Butler Plaza. It's big,
has lots of parking and is on the outskirts of Gainesville, so
it doesn't generate a lot of unwanted traffic in the middle
of the city. Butler Plaza, with its low prices and easy access,
seems tailor made to serve students.
And who doesn't love a Wal-Mart?
The wrong way to develop probably looks a lot like
University Corers. That development, across from the uni-
versity, isn't supposed to be completed for another seven
years, so entire classes of students will be unable to enjoy
the services of businesses once located there. And it will
draw additional traffic to the most overworked intersection
in the city West University Avenue and 13th Street.
The contrasts between Butler Plaza and University
Comers couldn't be more evident.
Ken Mamula, who hopes to buy Butler Plaza, has got-
ten real estate students at UF to help him plan the area's
University Comers, on the other hand, appears to have
been planned with no student input at all. The development
will be filled with expensive condos, expensive stores and
expensive restaurants. Those aren't exactly the kind of es-
tablishments that college students tend to patronize.
But the worst part about University Comers is that it
will have to rely on a 90 percent tax break from the city of
Gainesville just to be built. If investors aren't too keen on
putting up the cash to construct it, maybe it's not such a
good idea after all.

Sometimes democracy seems like cold butter on white
bread: The more you try to spread it, the more every-
thing falls apart.
The most fundamental concept in representative democ-
racy is that the people choose their leaders.
But what if the system worked the other way around
with legislators choosing their constituents?
Consider the following hypothetical situation.
What if Hamas, the majority party in the Palestinian
Legislative Council, announced a resolution that would
change the way Palestinian electoral districts are drawn
and strengthen Hamas' hold on power?
Under the real-life current system, electoral districts
are created by an apolitical body, the Central Elections
Commission, composed of nine members often lawyers,
judges and academics. CEC members have institutional
and financial independence, as well as four-year term lim-
its. While drawing these districts, the CEC is tasked with
equalizing populations, while also reflecting community
and municipal boundaries.
But consider if Hamas party leaders had unveiled a plan
to transfer redistricting control from the CEC to the legisla-
tive council, and promptly redraw the West Bank's districts,
'allegedly to better reflect the will of the Palestinian people.
Who would draw these new electoral borders? The ma-
jority party, Hamas.
Under this imaginary resolution, the majority party
would create the districts, effectively selecting whom it
wants to represent and eliminating threats to its power.
Hamas could propose a revised district map, which the
Legislative Council would likely approve. The new borders
would dilute support for Fatah, the main minority party,
and carve out safe constituencies for existing Hamas dis-
tricts. This proposed map might award Hamas about four
additional seats in the next election and diminish competi-
tion in other races.

Actually, there's nothing new about it that's how things
are done here in America, not Palestine.
In Florida and most of the U.S., elected legislators at the
state and federal level ease past elections without concern
for competition because they are in charge of selecting their
own constituencies they get to draw the district maps.
Just look at the facts.
In the 2004 races for the U.S. House of Representatives,
399 incumbents ran, and only seven were unseated. That's
a 98.2 percent retention rate.

Meyer unfairly criticizes Dance Marathon
When Andrew Meyer, in his column
titled "Annual Dance Marathon is an insult
to student intelligence," claimed that this
event is a form of hazing, it not only insults
the Greek community but also diminishes
the effort and time willingly put in by all
650 volunteers. In total, the event raised
$339,000 for Children's Miracle Network
here at Shands Hospital. No member of any
house was in any way coerced or forced to
participate. For many of the dancers, this
was their third, fourth or even fifth time par-
ticipating! The participants proudly volun-
teered, and those who chose not volunteer
worked as staff, morale captains or were
glad to come to the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center to support their friends.
The Dance Marathon staff took every
precaution to ensure that all dancers were
safe, healthy and in good spirits. Meyer
suggested that they should replace Dance
Marathon with a golf tournament or other
philanthropic event. I would like to point
out that almost every chapter sponsors a
philanthropy event each year. These events
range from dance competitions to athletic
tournaments and cumulatively raise more
than $100,000 each year for charity. Two of
these 30 yearly events are in fact golf tour-
naments. Additionally, each chapter partici-
pates in countless service projects through-
out the year, and this Saturday the Greek
community is sponsoring its first All-Greek
Service Day, in which members from each
of the four councils will participate in 15
separate large-scale service events around
Gainesville. As of yesterday, 950 people
were signed up to volunteer, and not a single
one of them will be a new member. No per-
son should ever put down an organization's
philanthropic work the way Meyer did.
Community service is something the Greek
community, and UF as a whole, prides itself
on and should be encouraged in all forms.
Interfraternity Council Public Relations
Meyer column shouldn't have run in paper
I am surprised that the Alligator allowed
Andrew Meyer's column about Dance
Marathon to make it in the newspaper, as it
reflects poorly on UF's College of Journalism
and Communications. I hope the journalism
professors at UF do not teach writing based
on faulty assumptions, misinformation and
negligent research all of which riddle
Meyer's column. He supports his disagree-
ments with Dance Marathon's reasoning
with untrue information.
First, dancers are not "forced" to stand.
They stand because they raised so much
money over the course of the year and want
to support Dance Marathon's cause. Those
of us who have danced know how difficult
it is to stand for 32 hours. On the other
hand, none of us who have danced know
how difficult it is to have a heart transplant
surgery and cancer before turning 6 years
old something a child went through
and Children's Miracle Network funded
through donations like those received from
Dancers do not stand for 32 hours to
"help the children" as Meyer claims. We
help the children by fundraising throughout
the year; indeed, almost all of the money
raised for Children's Miracle Network has
come in by the actual event. During Dance
Marathon, we put ourselves through pain
to simulate the struggle of the children we
raise money for. That pain, while substantial
to us, pales in comparison to the "torture"
that children and adolescents involved
with Children's Miracle Network have
gone through. Dance Marathon provides
more than pecuniary interest to Children's
Miracle Network and the miracle children
- it provides them with hope, love and nor-
malcy while allowing the dancers to attempt
to understand the emotional, physical and
mental plight these children have battled
with for years.
Melone oversimplifies war on terrorism
What do Matt Melone, Bill O'Reilly and
George W. Bush have in common? They
spend 90 percent of their vocal time justi-
fying and encouraging war, yet not a one
has been within 10,000 miles of an active
battlefield. Melone can be likened to a per-
son suffering from bulimia yet instead of
Twinkles, fudge and snack chips, he-binges
on Fox News, Pentagon briefings and Rush
Limbaugh; and instead of a toilet, he regur-
gitates it in his Monday column.
While Melone and his ideological ilk
compare the sizes of their flag lapel pins,.
I encourage students to study the politi-
cal history of the Middle East and the U.S.
involvement in it. Our government has had
many a lurid affair and shady dealings in
the Middle East, and peace
were never the result.
Team represented UF well in Tuscaloosa
On Sunday, Feb. 26, the Gators men's
basketball team traveled to Tuscaloosa,
Ala., to play the University of Alabama. My
husband and I are lifelong Alabama fans, as
are two of our three sons. Our oldest son,
Joe, however, is an avid Florida basketball
fan. We attend most of the University of
Alabama home games, and Joe had his
sights set on the Florida game for months,
counting the days. A dear family friend gave
him a basketball that could be autographed
for the game and offered to be his official
After the game, we all went outside
the door where the UF team would exit.
Although the Gators lost the game, they
were so gracious to sign Joe's ball and have
their photographs taken with him. This
wasn't limited to just a few players. Every
player and coach Billy Donovan took the
time to fulfill a dream for this young man.
What fabulous ambassadors for UF. You
all should be extremely proud of how your
school was represented by this fine group of
men. We were impressed that these young
men know that today's young fans are
tomorrow's UF students and athletes.

Music fest tests senses
By KENT RUSSELL
This weekend, hundreds of Gainesville
residents will wrap their hands around video
game controllers to make extra points or bul-
lets fly. But only one will be making music.
James Paul Sain, associate professor in
UF's School of Music, plans on using special-
ized game controllers to manipulate and im-
provise music during his performance at the
15th annual Florida Electroacoustic Music
Festival, a free event open to the public.
Sain is just one of the many unique per-
formances expected during "The joke is t
the .festival, which begins
today and runs until April 8 that n one
at the Phillips Center for the Matthei
Performing Arts. Florida Electr
Electroacoustic music is a Festival techni
merger of classical art-music
tradition and music technol-
ogy, Sain said. While there's no solid consen-
sus on its definition, electroacoustic music
often explores the textures of sound rather
than the more "traditional" style of music
composed with rhythm and melody.
"The joke is that it's techno that no one can
dance to," said Matthew McCabe, a UF grad-
uate student and member of the festival's
McCabe, who has previously composed
pieces for the festival, said electroacoustic
music is more akin to hip-hop than it is to a
four-piece rock and roll band. Much like how
a DJ samples sounds and creates a musical
collage, electroacoustic composers combine
real-world audio clips and reorganize them
in unconventional ways.
"This kind of music is about the way the
sound sounds, not about what the sound is
doing," he said.
Sain, who founded the festival when he
arrived at UF 15 years ago, said he wanted
to provide an outlet for his students' work
while also creating an electroacoustic com-
munity here in Gainesville.
"A composition isn't realized until it's
performed," Sain said.
Since its inception, the festival has grown
tremendously in size and influence, he said.
Not only has the festival attracted renowned
composers, but attendees from UF's festivals
have gone on to start electroacoustic events
across the nation.
This year, musicians from the University
of Birmingham in England will trek to the
at its t o Black Box Theatre in the

The 10,000-watt behemoth can not only
diffuse sound laterally, like a surround-sound
set-up, but it can also move sound vertically.
In most performances, the theater's lights are
dimmed so G.A.T.O.R. can create an aural ex-
perience devoid of other bodily stimulation.
Attending the festival is unlike any other
concert-going experience, said Christopher
Miller, an electronic music promoter in
Gainesville who has been to four of UF's fes-
tivals. He said attendees can count on enjoy-
ing something new -but shouldn't expect to
be able to describe it afterwards.
"One guy had a [Nintendo] Power Glove-
like deal," Miller said, referring to a past
composer's performance. "It looked like he
had arthritis or something, but he was play-
ing an electronic harmonica."

Media give games bad rap
Sne oppressively muggy day dur-
ing Spring Break, I abstained from
the beach and found solace in the
decades-old ass-groove in front of
my old PC at home. I was playing my buddy,
Collin, in a multiplayer match of "Winning
Eleven 8." We tested each other's wits and
disproportionate thumb strength over the
course of many online soccer matches.
At one point, my mother walked
by. She was concerned. Kent
"You're not playing one of those
violent games, are you?" she asked. f.
Now, this is the same woman,
bless her heart, who thinks Kevin
Bacon plays basketball. She asks how
many innings are left in the football
game. So when she questioned the
moral appropriateness of her 20-year-old son
playing virtual soccer, I wasn't too bothered.
But to me, it represented a bigger problem.
My mom keeps hearing about "super-
violent" video games from "60 Minutes" and
"Dateline." They, in effect, tell her that any
child who touches a DualShock 2 will go rabid
and start ripping at throats.
So my mom believes them because she's
never played a video game. She doesn't even
like to watch me play them. For the record, my
father tried to play "Ken Griffey, Jr. Presents

comes from Andy Rooney's inane, post-cur-

video games are.

So what's my point? When and if you de-

and don't look to the government to do your
job for you. Monitor what your children play

Seeking social acceptance for guy-on-guy action
've noticed two phenomena recent-
ly, and by "recently" I mean since
I've been a sexually mature person
- if there ever is such a thing.
In a nutshell, why is it that it's generally
acceptable for two women to be sexually in-
timate, while the same is almost a taboo for
men? And why is a woman not labeled "gay"
or "bisexual" for getting to second base with
her roommate, while if a man so much as
confesses that Brad Pitt is "sorta sexy," his
roommates get the heebie-jeebies?
Unless you've been camped out in Library
West recently (which you dearly haven't),
you've noticed the overabundance of young
women passionately kissing each other on to spend his sexy time alone?
top of bars, at drunken parties, in pictures I'm sure the recently popular gay cow-
from dubs and so on. It seems to me that their boys didn't achieve all that success from gay
primary motivation is the thrilled men alone, despite how many of
young men rooting them on. Maghan McDowell them might call Hollywood home.
If one hot girl is good, then two Certainly some woman other than
hot girls would be great, right? So me must find that at least as sexy
that's why a photo spread featur- as two women.
ing two showering coeds is accept-, Hopefully, the success of films
able because women are beauti- like "Brokeback Mountain" and
ful, and even if they're "straight," others will continue the same-sex-
they can't help but notice the beauty of the is-OK trend. I believe, and certainly hope, that
other. So why, then, am I not seeing the same the real reason we don't see as many "straight"
situation in a certain sexy woman's mag? men getting it on, or openly "bisexual" men, is
Why is every "guy-without-his-shirt" forced because they are not ready to admit its appeal,
whether to themselves or to others.
I personally find it incredibly sexy when a
man is confident enough to admit a bisexual
fantasy or two. I'm also pretty confident that
there's a bit more going on behind closed
doors than men let on and, naturally, I've
got the statistics to back it up. A survey cited
in "Sex on Campus" stated that 14 percent of
heterosexual females had kissed someone of
the same sex and only 12 percent of men had.
But get this: While only 4 percent of hetero
females had experienced oral sex with a
woman, as many as 7 percent of males had
experienced it with a man. Bet you didn't
know that. Keep it up, guys.

Diverse dances bring end to month-long celebration
By JOANNA BLAZ
The girls' silk skirts fly through
the wind as they kneel to plow
through the fields. The boys look on
anxiously, their hearts pounding to
the beat of the drums they play.
"Everyone back in their places."
Suddenly, the dancers from Indian
Inc. are snapped back to reality:
They're not celebrating harvest on
the warm fields of India; they're
at the Reitz Union on a crisp night
practicing their dance routine for the
Volunteers for International Student
Affairs 44th annual Talent Show.
The event, more commonly
known as the VISA Talent Show, is
one of the final events of a five-week
celebration of diversity. The show
will be held on Saturday at 7 p.m. at
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
"We practice for three hours
at least four times a week," said
Nithya Lingam, sophomore and
dancer in Indian Inc.'s rendition of
the Bhangra folk dance.
The traditional Indian dance is
characterized by movements that
symbolize farming. Danced to cel-
ebrate harvest time, it is still used
in some parts of India and Pakistan.
Indian Inc. has chosen the Bhangra
dance, among other traditional
Indian dances, in hopes of finally
Last year, Indian Inc. was sepa-
rated into two competing teams:
the Indian Student Association
and Bhangra. The Indian Student
Association won third place,
Bhangra won second place and the
Filipino Student Association took
A combination of last year's frus-
trating results and this year's theme
of "One Love" for International
Month and "Tribute to Diversity"
for the talent show, inspired ISA and
Bhangra to converge their styles and
form one team, Indian Inc. This new
team, combines the more modem
and upbeat style of Bhangra with
ISA's more traditional routines.
"Our cultural roots are both from
India, so we thought, 'if we're all
Indian, why don't we try doing it
together and see what happens?'"
said Sneha Shah, treasurer of the
ISA. "Its all about cultural unity
and putting drama to the side to just
With more than 200 active mem-
bers in both clubs and the large
Indian student population at UF,
Indian Inc. is feeling the pressure
to finally achieve its longtime goal
of first place.
"I hope the fact that we're col-
laborating keeps us in the top three,"
Shah said. "[But] the other teams
have outstanding performances."
Another team of determined
competitors is the Filipino Student
Association, who has a strong his-
tory of wins and has captured the
top spot for the past two years.
"I'm sure I'll feel the pressure as
it gets closer," said Kayla Gutierrez,
one of FSA's more than 40 dancers.
She describes this year's dance as
"a fusion of modem and tradition-
al," with a few hip-hop beats mixed
with traditional costumes.
Although Indian Inc. and FSA
both seem determined, they still face
seven other competitors: African
Student Association, Club Creole,
Friendship Association of Chinese
Students and Scholars, Greek
American Student Association,
Hispanic Student Association and
the Romanian Student Association.
Although there are only eight
participating in the Talent Show, all
VISA organizations have been par-
ticipating in International Month,
which gave them a chance to show-
case their heritage and culture.
"[The talent show is meant] to
show what this campus has to of-
fer and that we really have a lot of
diversity," said Jessica Marshall,
sophomore psychology major and
talent show director.
Besides keeping up with nu-
merous rehearsals, working with
the O'Connell Center and the
public relations team and helping
oversee the details of the event,
Marshall also helped choose a team
A mix of students and faculty
will judge the teams based on cre-
ativity, costumes, expression of cul-
ture and overall performance.
The winner will walk away with
a trophy, bragging rights and good-
ies from sponsors.
"Each group has something
to offer," Marshall said. "They all
identify with the theme of 'One
Love.' They all come with a love of
their culture and who they are."
Members of the Indian Student Association and the Bhangra Club practice for their performance as
Indian Inc. in the VISA Talent Show.

Champions to visit White House
* THEY WILL BE THE FIRST UF
TEAM TO VISIT D.C. SINCE THE
200'WOMEN'S TENNIS TEAM.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Billy Donovan and Joakim Noah
have become masters of the basket-
ball universe during UF's run to the
Southeastern Conference Tournament
and national championships. Today
they'll have the opportunity to rub
shoulders with one of the most power-
ful men in the world.
More than 75 players, family mem-
bers and staff representing the team
will travel to Washington, D.C., today
to meet with President Bush at the
They will be the fifth national
championship team from UF to visit
the nation's capital, and the first since
the 2003 women's tennis team.
The celebration is one more in a
long line of parties planned for the
Gators this week, as they already
whooped it up in Indianapolis and
then shared their joy with fans in
Gainesville on Tuesday afternoon after
a sleepless night for many, including
"There were so many people I
needed-4o thank, and because of that,
I probably need to stay up another
whole day," Donovan said.
In the next couple weeks, Donovan
and his'assistant coaches will spend a
good chunk of time out on the road
recruiting, trying to build on the mo-
mentum of the championship and en-
tice players to play for the Gators.
The Gators will lose just one senior,
forward Adrian Moss.
But Moss will get one more ovation
at the O'Connell Center.
UF has planned a celebration for
Friday night at the O'Dome so the fans
who made the trip to Indianapolis can
celebrate in Gainesville with the team.
Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for the
7 p.m. event.

A week into spring practice, UF coach Urban
Meyer praised a pair of his players as being the
most improved Wednesday.
Defensive end Jarvis Moss is high on Meyer's
list right now, as is quarterback Chris Leak.
"[Leak is] a completely different human being
right now," Meyer said. "It has something to do
with confidence, it has something to do with lead-
ership, it has something to do with commanding
respect, and he's doing a heck of a job."
As for younger players that have impressed
Meyer, sophomore cornerback Avery Atkins
and redshirt freshman offensive lineman Ronnie
Wilson drew his praise. Perhaps most surprising
was Meyer's praise for incoming freshman offen-
sive lineman Maurice Hurt, who graduated high
school early and enrolled at UF in January in order
to participate in spring workouts.
"He's really good," Meyer said. "He should
be getting ready for the prom, and he's going to
play for us next year."
SPRING SCUFFLE: Receivers Louis Murphy and
Kenneth Tookes got into a scuffle at the end of
practice during a receiving drill.
"The one way to bring out intensity in practice
is either self-respect, or it's also a competition,"
Meyer said. "And that's what I think you're see-
ing out here: a lot of competition, a lot of guys
"I think when you see that kind of nonsense,
it's nonsense, but you know what, it's not. If
someone is not holding up their end of the bar-
ain, he's going to be called out. If a leader calls
you out, that could get ugly sometimes."
Former UF forward Eshe drafted in WNBA's second round
All-SEC player chosen by Seattle
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
Four seniors and their coach got
together to watch the WNBA Draft
on Wednesday, but only one player
heard her name called.
Former UF forward Dalila Eshe,
an All-Southeastern Conference
first-team selection, was drafted
by the Seattle Storm in the second
round with the 25th overall pick.
"This is something I've dreamed
about ever since I started playing
basketball," said Eshe, who will
report to rookie orientation April 20.
Brittany Davis, Sarah Lowe,
Danielle Santos, Eshe and UF coach
Carolyn Peck waited as selections
were announced. The Minnesota
Lynx drafted former Louisiana State
guard Seimone Augustus with the
top pick. Augustus, the two-time
reigning national player of the year,
will join former UF center Vanessa
Hayden on the Lynx.
Four former SEC stars followed
Augustus. But Eshe didn't mind
"At that point I was [drafted] at, it
didn't matter," she said. "If I had an
opportunity to get on as a free agent,
it still would have been alright. It's a
dream to play in the WNBA."
Eshe will join the star-laden 2004
WNBA champions, which feature
guard Sue Bird and forward Lauren
time will be at
a premium on
playoff team, but
Eshe expects to
contribute to the
Storm in a re-
"I'm sure 1' be more of a role
player this year," said Eshe, who
started all 30 games for the Gators
last season. "I think I'll be able to
come in off the bench."
The draft lasted three rounds and
42 players were chosen, but Davis,
Lowe and Santos were left to ponder
their futures. Eshe said that all three
might still play professionally, pos-
sibly by signing a free agent contract
with a WNBA team.
"It was tough," Eshe said. "It
doesn't by any means mean that
they can't play in the WNBA."
Eshe's selection pushed UF to
a three-year streak of having play-

Seminoles sweep Gators
By BRIAN STEELE
The UF softball team must not enjoy be-
The Gators were ranked No. 19 during
the preseason, but after a 2-3 outing in the
Houston Tournament, they fell out of the top
25 the first week of the season.
Now at No. 24, UF (31-14, 10-5
Southeastern Conference) was back in the
rankings today, but another poor showing
could have them exiting the polls.
The Gators were swept by Florida State
on Wednesday, losing 4-0 and 6-5 in extra
When asked what the problem was, UF
softball coach Tim Walton had an immediate
"We didn't play very good defense," he
Even though the Gators have won several
games in their final at bat, clutch hitting es-
caped them against the Seminoles. After des-
ignated player Whitney Buckmon singled to
lead off the bottom of the eighth, it didn't
take long for FSU to finish the job. Shortstop
Yuruby Alicart then doubled down the left
field line to score Buckmon for the game-
"We're usually a team to jump out
on them first. The first game, we
weren't able to do that."
Though the Seminoles won the game in
their final at bat, UF catcher Kristen Butler,
who led the Gators with three RBI, feels UF
had actually lost the game before that.
"We're usually a team to jump out on them
first," Butler said. "The first game, we weren't
able to do that. They took all the momentum
after scoring first, and we had a hard time get-
ting our sticks going in the first game. We just
need to make better plays on defense."
Butler feels that UF simply let itself down.
"We beat ourselves tonight," She said.
"FSU's a great team, but we beat ourselves.
Our biggest foe on the field is ourselves with
us committing errors that we haven't been
Santa Fe falters early
By RYAN ACQUAVITA
Poor Santa Fe pitching and a
scorching Seminole offense were the
problems Wednesday afternoon as
the Saints fell to Seminole Community
Baseball scouts were scattered
among the small Santa Fe crowd,
watching the performance of Seminole
pitcher Mike McClendon (7-3), who
earned the win by going eight innings,
allowing nine hits and four runs while
striking out three.
"That kid's a pretty good pitcher,
I don't think he had his best stuff, but
he battled today," Saints coach Harry
Tholen said. "He's one of the best in the
conference and one of the best in the
state, and he beat us today."
Santa Fe's starter, Billy Whitaker,
didn't fare as well, going just 6 2/3
innings and giving up five runs on 12
hits. Seminole's hitting was timely; its
first five runs all came with two outs. :
With two outs and one on in the sec-
ond, Seminole second baseman Steve
Kellum ripped a line-drive double into
the outfield, just past the outstretched
glove of Saints' right fielder Tristan
Rainone. Rainone was shaken up on

Tholen said he thinks his team can
still make a run at the postseason, but
it's going to be difficult.
"We've. got to win," Tholen said.
"We've probably got to go 8-1, but
that's what we've got to do."

Stay or go? College or pro? UF's Noah faces NBA payday
Joakim Noah is on top of the world.
.,, He is easily the big man on campus
He is the king of the school, king of the
town. He has been on the Sports Illustrated
cover three of the last four weeks, which has
to be some sort of record.
Why mess with perfection? What hap-
pened to "If it ain't broken, don't fix it?"
The only reason my esteemed colleague
Loit wants Noah to leave is so he can take
the big man's title of most outrageous hair on
Joakim is having the time of his life right
now. If all of the Gators besides Adrian Moss
come back again, they'll contend for another
championship. Last we heard, on Tuesday,
Noah was adamant that he was staying.
"Oh, but of course," he said.
Sure, there are millions of dollars waiting
for Noah should he decide to jump to the
National Boring Association. But they're not
going anywhere. If Noah is having nearly
as much fun as he says he is, he should stay
"I believe these kids love the University of
Florida," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "They
love one another. I think all of them have a lot
to improve on and get better at. I do believe
they're different in terms of enjoying the col-
Billy knows then better than I do. If he
has a hunch they're staying, it's good enough
It's true that your average person might
jump for the green, but Noah is not your
average person. For one thing, his father is
a pop star in France
and won a French
Open. His mother is a
former Miss Sweden.
Something tells me
Noah isn't exactly
lan Fisher hurting financially.
Extra lannings This is the same
firstname.lastname@example.org Noah who walked
around campus in a
maternity dress, as the
picture that surfaced on Collegehumor.com
depicts. Clearly, Noah thinks differently.
He should talk to Matt Leinart. Leinart
came back after a championship and may
have cost himself a couple of draft spots. But
he probably had the best year of his life.
Money can't buy the fun and lack of re-
sponsibility that is college especially when
you virtually own the town.
Some say there is a risk of injury if he
returns. NCAA insurance policies are lucra-
tive enough that Noah would be set for life if
something tragic occurred, which is less likely
in basketball than football.
Noah says the NBA is boring, and I
couldn't agree any more. The passion in col-
lege basketball is almost infinitely greater. All
you needed to see was Noah virtually dry
humping the national championship trophy
Tuesday to know that.
Call me naive if you want. I've been lied to
by plenty of athletes and coaches. But when
Noah says he loves it here and doesn't want
to leave, for some reason I believe him.
And I believe that is the right decision.
Oh, but of course.
Here's a simple question for my
reading audience: Ever walked by
a dollar bill, noticed it and left it on
the sidewalk to rot and decay?
Now, picture New York Knicks gen-
eral manager Isaiah Thomas as the foolish
passerby who drops Benjamins on the
ground for fun. Don't laugh. He actually
does this through Central Park for exer-
cise. Anyhow, so Thomas notices this stud
of a player on his CBS affiliate Joakim
Noah. So Thomas calls Noah (of course
nobody in the NBA would do something
this illegal, right?) and promises to take
him with the first pick of the NBA Draft.
For those of you who follow shuffleboard
instead of professional basketball, being
drafted in the first round guarantees you
a three-year contract. And being drafted
in the top five guarantees you millions
and sometimes a contract with Icy Hot.
So what would you say if you were Mr.
"Umm, Mr. Thomas sir, as much as I
feel sorry for your ineptitude at managing
a bank account and your penchant for as-
sembling teams full of turds, I have to say
no. I don't want guaranteed financial free-
dom for the rest of my life. I want to risk
getting injured in my junior season at UF.
"Actually, the real reason I want to
wait a year is I don't like. attention. I'm
a real quiet guy who would never pound
his chest in public. Anyway, I want to be
drafted behind Greg Oden next season.
Who wants to be a No. 1 pick, silly?"
This conversation won't take place
Louis in the Bullpen
munches on DDT
for breakfast and
would never acquire
a player this good.
But someone from
the Orlando Magic
could call for Noah.
Houston coach Jeff
Van Gundy is good
friends with Billy
Donovan and you
know he'd love someone on his team who
could actually swat Yao Ming in practice.
The fact of the matter is that Noah is
on top of the world, and it wouldn't make
any sense for him to come down. College:
check. National title: check. Final Four
Most Outstanding Player: check.
There's no logical reason why Noah
should decline financial security for the
rest of his life just because 48,000 students
have already begun building gold statues
of him. Yes, his father has money, but
Noah is his own man.
My esteemed Alligator colleague
despises the NBA because he has less
athletic ability than a pug, hence he greed-
ily would prefer that everybody, athletes
included, rot with him in college. Yannick
should swat him with a Wilson for sug-
gesting something so ludicrous.
The draft will be held on June 28 in
New York City. Yeah, Noah's going to turn
down being chosen No. 1 in his hometown
of all places. I'll believe it when I don't

ers drafted. Tashia Morehead went in the third round to the
Washington Mystics last year, andHayden went to the Lynx in
the first round of 2004.
After her first three seasons, few could have expected to see
Eshe's name on the draft board. She started just 12 games and
averaged 4 points per game going into her senior year.
But she flourished as her minutes increased and helped
lead the Gators back to the NCAA Tournament. Eshe led UF in-*
points per game (14.2) and rebounds per game (7.1).
"I'm not sure if it's completely hit me yet," Eshe said. "I
came in last summer knowing it was the last opportunity for
the goal I was trying to reach."

Gators vie for SEC crown
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
The Southeastern Conference women's
tennis champion likely will be decided this
With matches against two of the top three
teams in the SEC, the Gators could clinch the
league title heading into next week's finale
against South Carolina.
.o. 3 UF first will face No. 7 Vanderbilt
on Friday at the Ring Tennis Complex at 3
Entering Friday's match against
Vanderbilt (18-2, 8-0 SEC), the Gators are
314-16 all-time against the SEC and 129-1
all-time at home. The lone loss came at the
hands of Georgia in 2002.
UF (15-1, 8-0 SEC) lost 4-3 to the
Commodores last season in Nashville.
The doubles team of Lolita Frangulyan
and Diana Srebrovic has won 12 straight
matches for the Gators.
"Doubles will be real important this
weekend," Thomqvist said. "It will help set
the tone for singles."
Junior Nina Suvak has helped the Gators
in singles play, winning a team-high 10 con-
After Vanderbilt, UF will play No. 22
Kentucky (14-6, 7-1 SEC) on Sunday at the
Ring Tennis Complex at 1 p.m.
The Gators fell to the Wildcats last season
in Lexington 5-2, and Kentucky went on to
claim the regular-season SEC crown.
"I'm a little surprised at their record to
be honest with you," Thomqvist said. "We
know they've been playing good, but at the
same time,we're peaking at the right time."
NO SUSPENSION: UF
men's tennis sophomore
Nestor Briceno has
declined to speak with
the media following his
outburst toward a chair-
Briceno umpire on Sunday.
Briceno jabbed his
racket at the umpire during his loss to
Auburn's Nick Lane and received a two-
game penalty for his actions.
After the match, Briceno tried to confront
the umpire and had to be restrained by UF
coach Andy Jackson.
Briceno has not been suspended by
UF or the NCAA. Jackson said he be-
lieves Briceno's two-game penalty during
Sunday's match was sufficient.
UF set for regional meet
By CHRIS WHITE
It's time for a UF-UCLA rematch,
The Gators will head to Arkansas
today for Saturday's NCAA Regional
Despite being the meet's top seed,

Conference Championships on March
No.. 3 UF will be grouped with
No. 9 UCLA, No. 18 Arkansas, No. 30
Illinois, No. 42 Illinois-Chicago and
No. 49 Southeast Missouri State.
The Gators met Arkansas twice and
Illinois once this season, outscoring
the Razorbacks and Illini each time,
but they aren't ready to write off their
"Not being a higher ranking doesn't
mean you're not good on a certain
day," UF junior Katie Rue said. "These
teams are all very talented. ... They all
did something to get to regionals."
UF coach Rhonda Faehn said fac-
ing her alma mater, UCLA, always
has been a pleasure and will pro-
vide UF with an idea of what it may
face if it qualifies
for the NCAA

two at regionals.

move a bone chip in her right elbow
