Gators rock the House

By CRAIG SINGLETON
Alligator Contributing Writer

WASHINGTON After return-
ing to Gainesville on Tuesday to be
greeted by 7,000 screaming fans,
the Gators spent Thursday not in .
the practice gymnasium or catching
up on homework but as President
Bush's guests in Washington, D.C. '

ebrating their respective NCAA
victories, Coach .
Billy Donovan and --''

honored at a cere-

Lawn of the White i

House.
by several mem-


bers of Congress and the players'
families, Bush, a self-described avid
sports fan and outdoorsman, ap-
plauded the NCAA champions for
their "excellence both on the field
and in the classroom."
"The mighty Gators have a fol-
lowing all over the country, includ-
ing my little brother," Bush said.
The President applauded the
Gators' coaching staff, singling out
Donovan, and remarked on the
team's 17-0 start to the season and
strong showing in this year's NCAA
tournament.
At the conclusion of the cer-
emony, UF senior Adrian Moss, a
fellow Texan, presented Bush with
a Gators basketball jersey and re-
ceived a hearty handshake from the
president.
Moss said the past few days have
been a "whirlwind" for the national
champions.

Student


renters may


face change
By DOMINICK E. TAO
Alligator Writer

For students renting in single-family neighbor-
hoods, the rules may change.
Gainesville officials discussed strengthening
city codes in single-family neighborhoods at a
Community Development Committee meeting
Wednesday. Some of the changes would make it
easier to get a citation for having living room furni-
ture outside or making too much noise.
"We hope students who live off cam-
pus know why it's important to be a
good neighbor."
Paige Crandall
UF's associate dean of students

Tom Saunders, Gainesville's community devel-
opment director, said some of the changes may seem
silly but are necessary for code enforcement officers
to address over-occupancy in neighborhoods zoned
for families.
Saunders said a proposed change to city rules
about noise ordinances would make it easier for
Gainesville police officers to give tickets to residents
who are too loud.
Currently, residents in single-family neighbor-
hoods are allowed to have one noise warning every
90 days before they are fined. The new rules would
extend the warning period to 180 days, according to
a document at Wednesday's meeting.
"Some people actually schedule their parties

UF changes parking decal cycle in name of convenience


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students who wish to purchase a
parking decal this Summer will have
new options, as UF Transportation
and Parking Services will be chang-
ing the current decal renewal cycle
to begin in the Fall semester.


Now, decals are offered in the be-
ginning of the Summer and are valid
for three semesters. Transportation
and Parking Services wants to
begin the decal cycle in the Fall. In
the meantime, officials recommend
students purchase a "transition" de-
cal, which will be valid from May 1
through August 31, 2007.


Students can still purchase the
Summer three-semester decal,
which will expire at the beginning
of the Summer 2007. But those who
will need decals during Summer
2007 will have to buy a shorter
"bridge" decal to carry them over
into the Fall, when the decal pro-
gram switches to coincide with the


academic year. Students will then be
able to purchase decals valid from
the beginning of the Fall semester to
the end of the Summer.
"We really recommend the [de-
cal] for the students' convenience
because it will tide them over to
another semester without having
to make an extra transaction," said


Scott Fox, director of Transportation
and Parking Services.
In the current system, decals
are valid from May 1 through
April 30 for the entire UF commu-
nity. However, Transportation and
Parking Services is phasing out the

UF student shoots for Rock, Paper, Scissors title


* THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER
RECEIVES $50,000.

By MARIA LAVERGHETrA
Alligator Writer

The basketball team celebrated
their first national championship
Monday, but UF might have an-
other champion this Sunday, when
a student will strive to win the Rock,
Paper, Scissors championship title.
"Football? Check. Basketball?
Check. Rock, paper, scissors?" asked
Anna Ketcham, who won the semi-
finals for the competition.
But an unexpected change in
plans has Ketcham playing the role
of cheerleader for her good friend
Thomas Wilde as he competes
against 320 finalists from across the
nation in Las Vegas.
Instead of not having to make
a beer run or take out the trash,
the grand prize winner of the first
annual Bud-Light-sponsored 2006
USA Rock, Paper, Scissors League
Championships receives $50,000.
There's also a $500 prize for the
best costume, which gave the pair
incentive for showing Vegas what
the Gators are all about, complete
with Gator colors, a mouthpiece and
custom T-shirts.
"The key that we are going to try
and employ is complete intimida-
tion," Wilde said.

Anna Ketcham and Thomas Wilde will travel to Las Vegas for the Bud-Light-sponsored national Rock,
Paper, Scissors competition. Wilde hopes to win the title and the $50,000 prize.

resort, hotel and casino, including laughing. She went out to Gator's Dockside


in January and played against about
15 to 20 competitors.
After drinking lots of free Bud
Light and playing "R, P, S," she won
and couldn't believe it, she said.
However on March 7, the day of
the final competition, she was diag-
nosed with shingles due to extreme
stress.
She had to find a replacement,
so she said she called the only per-
son she knew just as crazy as her
- longtime friend, Thomas Wilde.
A philosophy major who's taking
a semester off to pursue stock trad-
ing, Wilde is no stranger to pressure,
Ketcham said.
So, Wilde went out in Ketcham's
place with an understanding that if
he won, they would go together and
split the winnings.
She knew he was nervous, so she
shared her winning expertise.
The "avalanche" is throwing
rock consistently because it is easy
to play, and your hand is always in
the same position, Wilde said.
After her words of wisdom,
Ketcham was jolted awake at two
in the morning to hear the news
- they were going to Vegas.
They haven't yet decided hoiv
they are going to split the winnings,
since Ketcham is now going in sup-
port of Wilde, but they aren't wor-
ried about it.
"What happens in Vegas stays in
Vegas," she said.

Retirement communities celebrate Gators' victory


By MATTHEW SHUMWAY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Young or old it doesn't matter.
Not when the Gators become national
champions. The fire still burs in 60- to 70-
year-old die-hard Gators fans in Gainesville.
"I've never seen such excitement," said
Katherine Osman, event coordinator for the
UF-affiliated retirement community Oak
Hammock.
The Oak Room, equipped with a 65-inch
plasma flat-screen TV, was the place to be for
the residents.


"We had a pretty good turnout," Osman
said. "It was a great crowd for a great game."
About 25 to 30 residents showed up to
watch the Gators defeat UCLA and take the
first national championship in Gators basket-
ball history, she said. About 75 percent of those
residents were UF alumni.
"When the Gators won, the residents
weren't quite as crazy as those who flocked to
University (Avenue)," Osman said. "But boy,
they were all giddy come the morning."
Some residents had their own celebrations
based out of their apartments.
"And no, there were no noise complaints,"


Osman said laughing. "But I think every true
Gator fan was overwhelmed by the victory."
Oak Hammock wasn't the only place alive
with older Gators fans.
"I've never seen such excitement."
Katherine Osman
Oak Hammock event coordinator

"We all love the Gators here, and we knew
that this was an exciting time," said Beverly
Tinsley, activities coordinator at Summerville
at Gainesville, a retirement home in southwest
Gainesville. Summerville threw two parties


for its residents one for the Final Four and
another for the championship.
About 40 to 50 residents of the 110 at
Summerville attended the parties, she said.
"The residents had such a good time,"
Tinsley said. "I'm so glad that they got to see
this big event happen because I know they are
all die-hard Gator fans."
But some were offended when one of the
residents got confused by the jerseys' color
and started cheering for the wrong team.
"It was really kind of funny," Tinsley said.
"Even though she made the mistake, her heart
was still with the Gators."

Students' shack raises awareness

Students traversing the North Lawn on Thursday
couldn't help but notice a shantytown had sprung up be-
tween the Reitz Union and Weimer Hall.
The shabby wooden structure, resembling a lean-to

Habitat for Humanity volunteers spend Thursday in a
homemade shack to show what it's like to be homeless.


more than a dilapidated home, was part of the UF chapter
of Habitat for Humanity's Act! Speak! Build! Week, which
involves a series of activities to raise awareness of the
organization's current efforts and events.
Habitat members gathered in a circle behind the wood-
en hut as part of what they call the first annual Shack-a-
thon.
The activity ran from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday and
will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.
The event's organizer, education Chairwoman Heather
Maroney, said the decrepit structure is meant to be a sym-
bol of housing for the poor.
Members hope to educate the curious student passers-
by about how they can help fight such poverty in their own
community by joining Habitat and assisting in the con-
struction of low-cost housing for impoverished families.
"A lot of college chapters do the Shack-a-thon, but they
actually stay out overnight, which we aren't allowed to
do," Maroney said. "We'll be hanging out, playing games
and reflecting upon the experiences we've had today while
living in the house."
The organization is nearing completion of the project its
chapter picked up from Alachua Habitat for Humanity in
Spring 2005 the construction of a house for a family in
nearby Archer.
"It's a five-bedroom house, which is unique for Habitat,"
said President Jeff Wong. "But it's for a big family."
At the heart of this activity is the desire to recruit new
members to Habitat. They have about 50 active members,
but a far more extensive group signed up for its mailing
list.
"People sign up because they did it in high school,"
Maroney said. "But-most of them have events that conflict
with our own."
Still, the response has been very positive.
"It's cool to see people's reactions," said Matt Soicher,
Habitat co-vice president. "We try to do things to catch at-
tention visually stunning and surprising things."
"The desire to volunteer is what matters," Wong said.
"Whether you can drywall or not is something you can
learn over time. There's always something you can do."
Wong said that the semester may be winding down, but
there will be a number of Habitat members here over the
summer working on building projects;
He recommends that anyone interested visit their Web
site at www.ufhabitat.org for information about meetings
and events.

* AT MIDNIGHT, STUDENTS WILL TAKE A
15-MINUTE DASH IN THEIR UNDERWEAR.

By. MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Less is more for UF students who will make
underwear the only thing they wear tonight.
Skivvy-clad students will gather at the Hub at
midnight for The Great Underwear Dash III, a 15-
minute jog through campus and along University
Avenue. This is the third dash, and
the second run had 10 times the
Local number of runners the first had.
News "I'm creating my own college
experience," said the creator, Beau
Bergeron, a graphic design junior. "When you
watch a lot of these college movies,-it is crazy all the
time, and unless you create that stuff for yourself
it's not going to happen."
The event is not for a cause, but he said it has
come to represent spontaneity and promotes a pos-
itive self-image. During the last run, Bergeron said
people walking along University Avenue stripped
on the spot, and passengers jumped out of cars to
join the mass of people wearing unmentionables.
"Everyone is invited young, old, fat, skinny,
hot or not," Bergeron said. "It's really an impor-
tant thing to me to have a diverse sampling of
Gainesville."
Runners can wear whatever they feel most com-
fortable in -boxers, bras or pajamas.
The University Police blocked off the roads for
the runners last year, and Bergeron would like to
have its support again this year.
"If somebody gets hurt or sexually harassed, I
really don't want to do it anymore," Bergeron said.
"I don't want people hitting on people or making
passes. It's just good, ocean fun."
The first event had about 50 participants, and
about 500 came to the second.
Art sophomore Juli Elin ran in the past two
dashes. She and her friends go out and buy new
underwear specifically for the event.
"My favorite part of the underwear run is see-
ing all the boys in their tighty whites and having a
reason to strip and not be indecent," Elin said.

Tower Yearbook to use Facebook profile pictures


By KIM CRUTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF Facebook fanatics will have a new me-
dium this year: the Tower Yearbook.
The theme for this year's 416-page publica-
tion comes from the popular college network-
ing Web site Facebook.com.
Yearbook staffers hope the focus on
Facebook will play off the Web site's role
as a unifier on campus and show that the
same kind of unity can be memorialized in
a yearbook, said Editor in Chief Leslie Veiga.
However, the new theme does not come with-
out concerns.
In light of the recent suggestions released
by the UF Division of Student Affairs outlin-
ing the proper and improper uses of Facebook
profiles, Veiga is unsure of the reaction the


theme will receive from UF's administration.
"The administration has apparently come
down hard on Facebook," Veiga said. "They're
going to be real happy to see the yearbook is
all Facebook, all the time."
The Tower Yearbook has gone beyond us-
ing Facebook as just a theme the Web site
has become an invaluable way to communi-
cate with students about yearbook activities.
Yearbook staff created the Facebook group
"I Want to be in the UF Yearbook!" to give
students the opportunity to have their current
Facebook profile photo printed in the publica-

The rules for profile photos are simple: no

up for a week to give staff members time to
upload them all.
Profile photos will be uploaded the week

* UF OFFICIALS CHANGED
THEIR VIEWS THURSDAY.

UF officials who once fretted
over sharing state medical school
funding with other universities
have muted their criticism in re-
cent days.
The Board of Governors,
which oversees Florida's 11
public universities, approved
medical schools at the University
of Central Florida and Florida
International University on March
23 a move UF officials fought
for months.
Before the landmark decision,
UF officials warned that more
state-funded medical schools
would dilute the quality of exist-
ing programs at UF, Florida State
University and the University of
South Florida.
"There's only so much money
in the state," UF Provost Janie
Fouke said in January. "So if mon-

ey goes -to these activities, there
will, by definition, be less money
for everyone else, including the
University of Florida."
Earlier this semester, UF
Vice President for Research Win
Phillips said new medical schools
would not help the state economy
and would divert funds from UF.
UF President Bernie Machen
said otherwise Thursday.
"The new medical schools
won't impact
U F us," he said.
Academcs D i a n na
Morgan, UF
Board' of
Trustees vice chairwoman, echoed
Machen's sentiments.
The governors made it clear
their intent in allowing UCF and
FlU medical schools was to in-
crease the number of physicians
in the state.
"The Legislature realizes they
need more physicians in the state,"
Morgan said, "and they have no
interest whatsoever in diminish-
ing our programs as they give the
green light to new programs."

Editorial
We lost some members of the Editorial Board on Monday
night.
As soon as the Gators won the NCAA national champion-
ship, our beloved peers dashed into the liquor soaked crowd on
University Avenue and disappeared into the night.
Last time we saw them, they were scaling a lamppost while
taking shots of orange and blue vodka. And then they fell into
the crowd and were lost in a sea of one-ply toilet paper.
And the female editorial board members just wish they
hadn't lost their purses while riding on the shoulders of hot,
drunken male strangers.
We're now poor and without identities, but we've yet to lose
our fantastic writing abilities. Or our knack for writing in the
royal "we."
So bust out the orange and blue, get ready for a weekend of
celebration and pray for the return of our writers as we catapult
into another edition of...



Darts & Laurels

The riotous atmosphere Monday night was better than we
could have ever hoped. Drivers honked, fans hugged and beer
flooded the streets.
Fans had forced a version of Mardi Gras into Gainesville.
And, for the first time we can remember, the city and the
students actually got along.
So we hand a thanks-for-giving-us-a-lawless-night-of-rev-
elry LAUREL to the Gainesville Police and the University
Police. They did exactly what they should have done ig-
nored the individuals hurting themselves and concentrated on
the good of the whole.
GPD spokesman Sgt. Keith Kameg said officers weren't
concerned with the "idiot standing on the light post." Instead,
police focused on making sure traffic didn't interfere with the
crowd they even closed off some streets for the celebration.
Hey, does that mean GPD organized our party? Can we get
a keg next time?
Actually, we think GPD should consider sponsoring such a
party on a regular basis. It would really help relations between
UF and the city.
But police will have to keep a lookout for those who have
abused their brain cells to the point of ridiculous idiocy.
We shoot an at-least-enact-revenge-upon-a-longtime-nem-
esis-when-destroying-property DART to Jose Gerardo for
smashing the windshield and denting the exterior of his own
car during Monday night's festivities.
He was then arrested for disorderly intoxication.
Seriously who destroys their own car?
Moving on from basketball fanaticism and into football
preparation, we throw a Gators-are-supposed-to-help-each-
other-not-exploit-each-other DART to the University Athletic
Association for raising the price of student football season tick-
ets to $70. That's $28 more than last year.
The reason? Other schools charge more.
Or, as Bill Holloway, the assistant athletics director for ticket
operations, puts it: "We just brought it up to the average."
But the Gator Nation isn't average. We're the country's role
model for school spirit, brotherly love and excellent academics.
Have we laid it on thick enough yet? Can'we now have our
cheap tickets?
If we can't get a better deal on tickets, we might just watch
orgasms on campus for free.
For that campus perk, we bestow a nothing-is-better-than-
sexual-expression-at-school LAUREL to the Pride Student
Union for providing students with the materials to paint their
version of an orgasm on a T-shirt.
We think PSU is on to something. If everyone wore their
orgasm on their shirt, we'd all feel a lot closer.
And then sports wouldn't be the only reason we had school
spirit.

Pending law threatens Internet freedom


There is little doubt that the Internet is the back-
bone of our modem-day society.
Allowing instant retrieval of any type of
information, from breaking news to useless trivia, it
influences the daily lives of Americans and many oth-
ers throughout the world. Many would argue that the
Internet is the culmination of all the efforts over the past
50 years to make information accessible to all.
But this priceless access to information is at risk.
The government is working hand-in-hand with
broadband connection providers to alter and slow the
system to better suit Internet service providers. The final
draft of the Communications Opportunity, Promotion
and Enhancement Act intentionally passes over a cru-
cial aspect of Internet service something called "net
neutrality."
Under net neutrality, broadband providers can't
favor some Internet sites over others. They are not al-
lowed to play favorites by providing varying service
between their users.
Without this, broadband providers are allowed to
limit connection speeds to Internet sites as they see fit.
In essence, it gives them the option of slowing access for
all'to enact a system of tiered connections based on how
much one is willing to pay.
Even worse, it will set the stage for a form of legal-
ized electronic extortion where broadband companies
will be able to choke off access to users' sites unless they
are willing to pay the same premiums that other sites are
willing to pay. In doing so, they will limit access to many
independent business Web sites channeling more
bandwidth to large corporate entities that are willing
and able to spend funds on things that were once free.


If the act is passed, the era of
the Internet as a wild and-un-
tamed land of opportunity will
S likely come to a close. No longer
will unsigned musicians be able
to gain notoriety by marketing
Scott Gilton themselves over the Internet.
Scott Strikes Back Independent Web sites offer-
letters@alligator.org ing services and products will
disappear as the Information
Superhighway turns into a
clogged and heavily tolled road.
Furthermore, the act gives the Federal
Communications Commission the authority to set rules
and punish violations against rules that do exist within
the act.
Any situation that gives the FCC greater influence in
the Internet is patently bad, as it raises the specter of a
future in which access to information is not only slowed
and choked by greedy corporate entities but also cen-
sored by governmental authorities.
Governmental bills such as the Communications
Opportunity, Promotion and Enhancement Act dem-
onstrate once again that government intervention in
the electronic world is a harmful and hindering force.
In a realm that at one time was the embodiment of
freedom of speech and access, there are more and more
indications of unnecessary limitations. Bills created and
passed by lawmakers who couldn't tell pocket calcula-
tors from PDAs do nothing for the future of our elec-
tronic nation.

Meyer's column was a slap in the face to Dance Marathon


T he editors of the Alligator have
made quite a few mistakes
over the years in their deci-
sions of what to print in their news-
paper, but printing a column that
berates the largest student-run phi-
lanthropy in the Southeast United
States really takes the cake. This
weekend was the 12th annual Dance
Marathon at UF, and the 50-plus
participating organizations raised a
total of $340,000 all of which went
directly to the Children's Miracle
Network at Shands Children's
Hospital. I would just like to clear
up some of the incorrect informa-
tion that was presented in Andrew
Meyer's column Tuesday.
First of all, here's how the event
really works: Each participating or-
ganization does fundraisers all year
to raise money for some of its mem-
bers to be dancers. Organizations


also attend various smaller events
that incorporate the Miracle
Children and their families and raise
awareness with T-shirts, banners,
painting the 34th Street Wall and
decorating car windows.
At the actual event, the 650 danc-
ers stay awake and on their feet for
32 hours straight in the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center. Mr. Meyer did get
this partially correct, but he left out
an explanation of why they do this.
The 32 hours of standing represents
the struggles and sacrifices made
by the Miracle Children and their
families. It is not."hazing," and it is
obviously not as excruciating as he
made it seem. It is a challenge, yes,
but it's supposed to be.
The Miracle Children and their
families are so incredibly apprecia-
tive of the students who volunteered
to give up an entire weekend of their


Annie college life
Prodgers just to show
Speaking Out they care.
For the
kids, just hanging out with college
students who talk to them and play
with them is awesome. For their
families, it is almost impossible to
hold back tears when they get on
stage and thank the people who
organize and participate in Dance
Marathon each year because with-
out them, their children might not
still be alive. Andrew Meyer had
plenty of awful things to say about
DM itself saying that the actual
event doesn't "help the kids." But
it does. It gives them new hope and
a weekend vacation with people
wanting to play with them.
Meyer also insults the event as
being "a fundraiser for the Greek
community." I understand that the


writers for the Alligator sit around
Friday nights and think about how
to berate the Greek community
and -incorporate Greek stereotypes
into the next issue, but this time it
has gone too far. There are actually
more non-Greek organizations that
participate in DM than Panhellenic
or Interfraternity Council organi-
zations. Greek organizations may
have more dancers overall and
consistently raise the most money,
but it is because they are some of the
biggest and most involved organiza-
tions on campus. However, if other
organizations with more members
push to do fundraisers and partici-
pate in events throughout the year,
they could blow everyone else out
of the water.
This year, without the top three
money-raising pairs, the Children's
Miracle Network would have been


out $125,000. So what if most of the
money is raised by Greeks? It still all
goes to the same place.
Overall, Dance Marathon is an
incredible event that is highly re-
spected. The fact that Meyer could
compare it to herpes and state false
information about an event that
helps children shows just what great
journalists we have at UE
A written apology is owed to
Children's Miracle Network and
the Overall Team, staff and advisers
of Dance Marathon. You hurt us all
with this slap-in-the-face column,
belittling something that we have
been working on for a year. Miracle
Children and families cried when
they read it. Mr. Meyer had no
right to say that an. event that has
contributed to children's health and
survival over the years is pointless.
Annie Prodgers is a pre-vet senior.


Letters to -... :.
Coulter's speech lacked truth, charisma
Ann Coulter wasn't what I expected. I
knew she was a colorful, self-proclaimed
polemicist. I knew she adored hyperbole and
relentlessly producing outrageous statements
to make her point. But I thought that as a cum
laude graduate from Comell, former editor of
The Michigan Law Review and former practic-
ing lawyer and political aide, she'd be able to
construct solid arguments. Her unconvincing
rhetoric too often employed circular logic or
double standards; she carries her arguments
to unnecessary extremes.
I could recite a litany of her contradictions:


calling Democrats racist against Arabs while
herself calling them "homicidal maniacs"; or
claiming that after Sept. 11, merely the desire
to obtain uranium warranted an invasion
of Iraq, while Iran's possession of uranium
doesn't change the fact that "we don't need to
send troops in."
Though these political points did little
to surprise, the personal side of Ms. Coulter
proved more shocking.
The most disappointing facet of Ms.
Coulter was her less-than-sparkling persona.
I'd expected her to embody her charismatic,
blonde-bombshell image, but her speech was


delivered without much stage presence. She
delivered a few solid jokes but hardly took
the overly friendly house down. It was like
watching your older sister awkwardly deliver
a stale stand-up routine. Regrettably, her best-
received joke involved J. Lo.
She revealed herself only to be in her true
element while badgering the members of the
less supportive faction of her audience once
categorizing a question about the legitimacy of
wars "retarded."
The spectacle grew tiresome. She waltzed
around giving her opinion on the true political
queries, except to repeat tired, inflammatory


arguments for carpet-bombing Iraqi civilians.
She blatantly dismissed serious challenges
to her views, endlessly demanding the next
question.
She once quoted her darling Joe McCarthy
- and later used the exact same quote.
Ms. Coulter would have proved much
more impressive had she been able to stand
her ground for the tough questions rather
then demolishing the questioners hardly
a challenge in an auditorium full of College
Republicans.

UF panel discusses religious themes and stereotypes


By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

A panel representing six major religions
smashed religious prejudices Thursday night,
touching on the recent fad-like popularity of
portions of Eastern religions.
"When a religion comes into a society
- like Buddhism or Hinduism and people
just pick and choose what they want, they just
take it completely out of their cultural con-
text," said Shreena Gandhi, the Hinduism rep-
resentative. "You can't just pick and choose."
About 60 attendees met in McCarty Hall C
Room 100 for a panel discussion titled "Myths


and Misconceptions: A Panel on Religion."
The forum, held in correlation with
Religious and Spiritual Diversity Week,
brought together representatives of six dif-
ferent religions to discuss what many people
take as fact.
In addition to Hinduism, panelists rep-
resented Catholicism, Islam, Mormonism,
Buddhism and Judaism.
"There's obviously some major misconcep-
tions that are out there about major religions,"
said Stephani Wrabel, coordinator of the
week. "[This is for attendees] to hear more
of an educated view rather than the popular,
mainstream culture of how things are."
The panelists took turns talking about their


respective religions and then hosted questions
from the audience.
For Hindus, it is very difficult to define
Hinduism, Gandhi said, because there is no
single text or creed like the Christian Bible.
"Our attitude to the world is: It's
been given by God, let us enjoy."
Father John Gillespie
Catholic priest

"So basically, you ask one Hindu some-
thing, you'll get one answer," she said. "You
ask another, and you'll get a completely dif-
ferent one."


Buddhist representative Jason Neelis said
not all Buddhists are peaceful, nonviolent eco-
friendly vegetarians.
"There's no stipulation that eating meat is
forbidden," Neelis said.
He added that Buddha is not always repre-
sented as being corpulent.
"In many other Buddhist traditions,
'Buddha's not always fat. He's fit," he said.
Father John Gillespie, a Catholic priest,
said that contrary to recent times, throughout
history the Roman Catholic Church was criti-
cized for being too loose in enforcing morals
and values.
"Our attitude to the world is: It's been
given by God, let us enjoy," Gillespie said.


Policy would be more strict

around this 90-day warning pe-
riod," Saunders said.
City officials are also trying to
"strongly urge UF and Santa Fe to
issue penalties to students based on
off-campus violations," according to
the document.
Paige Crandall, UF's associate
dean of students, said it's not the
university's place to penalize stu-
dents, and UF has an entire division
in the Dean of Students Office dedi-"
cated to off-campus life.
"We hope students who live off
campus know why it's important to


be a good neighbor," Crandall said.
Student renters are not the only
targets of the city's prospective
legislation. Landlords would also
be affected by the changes. Fees
for landlord permits would be in-
creased and over-occupancy treated
with a $200 fine under the proposed
rules.
SCity Commissioner Chuck
Chestnut said he wanted to be sure
landlords were told of any changes
in city ordinances because he
doesn't want any of them "yelling
that they weren't informed."
About a dozen residents from
affected neighborhoods were also at
the meeting. There were no students
present.


New parking decals take effect in Fall 2007

old system in an effort to better meet the needs
of students.
For faculty,- staff and Shands employees, the
"decal year" will remain as it is now.
Fox looks forward to separating student de-
cal renewals from other renewals because it will
allow different customer groups to be served at
different times of the year more effectively and
efficiently.
"Everyone will enjoy the .benefit of better
service because we won't be as busy," Fox said.


"We'll be handling one group at a time instead of
both groups simultaneously."
The plan to change the decal renewal cycle
was adopted in 2004 after endorsement by a
Student Senate bill.
The request was passed too late in the plan-
ning process for implementation in the 2005-2006
school year, but Transportation and Parking
Services are taking steps now so the proposal will
be in full effect by Fall of next year.
"It makes sense to us on many levels that the
student decal cycle should coincide with the aca-
demic year," Fox said. "Students recognize that
the academic year starts in the Fall."

Christian group to wakeboard on waves of faith


* A CHRISTIAN GROUP WILL
PERFORM WAKEBOARDING
MANEUVERS SATURDAY.

By JULIE BANCROFT
Alligator Contributing Writer

When wakeboarder Cory
SWilliams strapped on his board
last January, it may have seemed
like the beginning of an ordinary


practice.
But all it took was a sudden
fall, and his arm was caught in the
handle connecting him to the boat;
ripping the muscles in his upper
arm as he fell to the water.
A torn bicep and a fractured
bone sent Williams into surgery
and out of the water.
Doctors predicted the rare sur-
gery needed to connect his muscle
fibers would keep him on dry
land for six to eight months. But


Williams, 23, said God sped up his
recovery to a mere four months.
The injury opened his eyes to
the priorities in his
Local life, and he realized
News wakeboarding is not
No. 1.
"What's important to me are
the things that will last for eter-
nity," Williams said.
Williams and others from
Operation 12, a Christian wake-
boarding ministry, will hold an


exhibition Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at
UF's Lake Wauburg South.
UF's Campus Crusade for
Christ is organizing the exhibition.
Event coordinator and UF sopho-
more Johanna Hanson said the
riders will perform wakeboarding
and wakeskating maneuvers for
about an hour. After the exhibi-
tion, Williams and other riders will
share how their faith has influ-
enced their lives. The event is free
and open to all.


Williams and friend Jared
Weidman began Operation 12
three years ago with the purpose
of sharing their faith with those
who may not attend a traditional
Sunday church service.
The goal of their group is to use
their talents to show people they
can be real and have fun while still
keeping their faith.
"There are so many people that
represent Christianity that don't
do it in a good way," he said.

Students to show borderless beauty at pageant


By TRICIA PATEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
From dancing to the beat of
African drums to translating
Hindi poems, 11 contestants in
the Volunteers for International
Student Affairs beauty pageant
will offer a diverse array of talents
Friday night.
"There are so many talented


people on campus, and the pag-
eant allows students to showcase
these talents," said Dipesh Patel,
president of VISA.
"It also allows audiences to be
exposed to cultures that they may
have known nothing about."
The pageant is one of the
last events to take place in
International Month at UF, and
contestants will be competing for


the title of Mr. and Miss VISA.
With the theme "Beauty
Beyond Borders," the pageant
will boast an elaborate set design
with a winding staircase and a
moon.
Contestants are required to
perform a talent, answer ques-
tions and showcase cultural, busi-
ness and formal attires.

UF hits stride in time for SEC rivals


* THE NO. 3 GATORS WILL HOST
NO. 7 VANDERBILT AND NO. 22
KENTUCKY THIS WEEKEND.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The No. 3 UF women's tennis team
will look to take back a title it has prac-
tically owned this weekend.
Twenty out of the past 26 years,
the Gators have been crowned
Southeastern Conference regular-sea-
son champions.
Last year, the only two teams to
defeat the Gators in the SEC were
Vanderbilt and Kentucky.
UF will play both this weekend for
a- chance to all but guarantee itself the
title that was ripped away from it last
season.
UF coach Roland Thornqvist said
the matches could not have come at
a better time for the Gators, who are
playing their best tennis of the season.
"You'd like to hit that stride at the
end of the season," Thornqvist said.
"Now is a good time to play good
tennis, because now is when it really
matters."
The Gators (15-1, 8-0 SEC) will host
No. 7 Vanderbilt today at the Ring
Tennis Complex at 3 p.m.
The Commodores and the Gators
both have identical 8-0 records in the
SEC.
"They're young, but they're
very good," Thorqvist said about
Vanderbilt. "They have some players
at the top of their lineup that have
beaten us in the past, so it's going to be
a formidable challenge for us, no ques-
tion about it."
Normally, the last home match of
the season would have some emotional
ties to the seniors.
But with the Gators hosting the SEC
Tournament, this weekend will not be
the last time seniors Boglarka Berecz
and Alexis Gordon suit up at home.
"It's going to be a dogfight,"
'Thorqvist said. "We always have
good matches with Vanderbilt. They're
not afraid of us."
The Gators will then play No.
22 Kentucky on Sunday at the Ring


Tennis Complex at 1 p.m.
Kentucky (14-6, 7-1 SEC) claimed
the regular-season SEC Championship
last year after defeating the Gators 5-2
in Lexington.
UF will finish its schedule on
April 15 against South Carolina in
Columbia.

ROAD TRIP: In search of a higher seed
in the upcoming SEC Tournament, the


No. 15 UF men's tennis team (11-6, 5-3
SEC) will finish up its road schedule this
weekend.
UF will face Vanderbilt today in
Nashville, Tenn., before heading to
Lexington to play No. 21 Kentucky.
"We're not playing particularly
great," UF coach Andy Jackson said.
"But with the SEC and NCAA tour-
naments ahead, we still have a lot to
work toward."

Analyzing, providing slumpbusters for Gators' fall from baseball grace


When the UF baseball team faces
Kentucky tonight in Lexington,
it will look to end the miserably
frustrating route it took this season.
The Gators began the season ranked sec-
ond in the nation and found themselves at the
top of the polls shortly thereafter. A 3-2 loss to
Mercer was quickly forgotten after a weekend
sweep of Miami. But the Gators dropped
four of their last six weekends, only besting
Hai ard and Arkansas, to fall out of all but
one poll.
With 23 regular season games remaining,
UF is in legitimate danger of not playing in the
Southeastern Conference Tournament or the
NCAA Tournament.
The good news, however, is that the Gators
have 21 SEC games to play, including 12
against teams with losing records in confer-
enc'play.
UF has ample time to regain the swagger
that propelled the team to the best season in


school history a year
ago. At this point last
year, the Gators were
25-8.
The confusing part
of this season's 19-14
Tim Casey start is how so much
Casey at the Bat proven talent could all
tcasey@alligator.org have an off year at the
same time. Only sopho-.
moreBryanAugenstein,
junior Gavin Dickey, senior Darren O'Day and
junior transfers David Cash and Chris Petrie
performed well in conference play, although
the latter two had defensive errors.
SEvery regular player on UF's roster except
Augenstein, Josh Edmondson and Matt Gaski
will be eligible for the MLB Draft on June 1.
It appears that the majority of the team is
playing for themselves, thinking ahead to pro-
fessional baseball. Instead of settling for well-
placed singles or working pitchers into a walk,


UF batters have been swinging for the fences.
Coach Pat McMahon is as frustrated by
the offensive woes as anybody. He spends at
least 12 hours per day at the stadium, working
with players, juggling the lineup and scouting
future opponents.
Nagging injuries impaired most of the
Gators at some point, but McMahon seems
to be willing to try anything to turn the team
around. Dickey batted in all nine spots in the
lineup, and eight different players have started
as the designated hitter.
The primary deficit on the roster is the
lack of a solid No. 3 starter for Sunday games.
McMahon gave seven different pitchers the
opportunity, but none have impressed.
The second roster flaw is the absence of
a third baseman who can field and a second
middle-infielder who can hit, something that
plagued the team last year.
Barring any miraculous talent improve-
ments, the Gators continue to search for a cata-


lyst that will spark another run to Omaha.
I'd like to offer a few suggestions in hopes
that I can also join the team in Nebraska
again.
Sometimes a good old-fashioned fight will
unite a team. The Boston Red Sox were mired
in a similar funk during the 2004 season. AJuly
24 brawl that began with Jason Varitek punch-
ing Alex Rodriguez sparked a turnaround that
carried the Red Sox to their first World Series
championship since 1918.
Maybe a rainout would help. If you walk
past McKethan Stadium as late as 2 a.m.,
you'll hear the "ping" of somebody taking
batting practice. It might help to take a break
from baseball. While you can't control the
weather, you can flood the field, as seen in
"Bull Durham."
My final suggestion is hardly a new con-
cept to these experienced baseball players.
Desperate times call for desperate measures:
Google "slumpbuster" as a last resort.

Gators to face reigning RBI, strikeout leaders


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

When a team's opponent fea-
tures the reigning NCAA RBI and
strikeout champions on its roster,


it may have a problem.
The Gators should remember
Tennessee pitcher Monica Abbott
and third baseman Kristi Durant.
Last year, Abbott went 50-9 with a
.52 ERA and 603 strikeouts in 392'


innings.
While Durant finished tied for
tops in the nation's with 77 RBI
last year, she isn't leading the
Volunteers in that department this
year. Sophomore Tonya Callahan


Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff
Senior Kristen Butler catches during UF's 3-1 win against Southern Mississippi on March 5. Butler and
the Gators will travel to face No. 5 Tennessee for a weekend series beginning Saturday.


is enjoying a breakout season
and has already eclipsed her RBI
count from last year with 49 this
season.
With Durant's added success,
No. 5 Tennessee could present a
challenge for the No. 24 Gators
during a three-game series begin-
ning Saturday in Knoxville.
Even though Florida State
sweptUF (31-14,10-5 Southeastern
Conference) in a doubleheader on
Wednesday, the Gators are still
winners of their past four SEC
series and won a series against the
Volunteers last season. In the 2005
series, the Gators scored five runs
in 18 innings against Abbott.
"[Defeating Tennessee last
year] was a great boost last season
and a great boost going into this
weekend," senior catcher Kristen
Butler said. "Knowing that we
have been successful against
Abbott helps. We know how to be
prepared going up to the plate."
Although the SEC schedule
has been a confidence booster for
the Gators, UF coach Tim Walton
knows his team must recover
from its debilitating loss to FSU.
"We're not feeling very good,"
he said. "That's how the game


goes. You take a couple steps for-
ward and [against FSU] we took a
step backward. We need to work
hard as a coaching staff to instill
confidence in [our players]."
Butler, who leads UF in home
runs and RBI, said the Gators
need to take an early advantage.
"That's how the game
goes. You take a couple
steps forward and [against
FSU] we took a step back-
ward."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

"Our biggest key is getting
clutch hitting," she said. "We
need to be able to score first and
jump on top of them and keep the
energy of the game in our dugout
and not in theirs."
Facing a critical series -
Tennessee and UF stand second
and third in the SEC East the
Gators don't want to look past
this weekend.
"You can't look too far ahead,"
freshman Kim Waleszonia said.
"Just take one pitch at a time and
you take it as they come."


TRACK AND FIELD

UF athletes go cross-country for relays, invitationals


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

The UF track teams' weekend slate seems
like a script for the TV show "Where in the
World is Carmen San Diego?" Members of
both the men's and women's teams will
travel to competions in three states.
The men's squad sent four athletes ear-
lier in the week to compete at the prestigious
Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin,
Texas. The four athletes competing in Texas
will be seniors Kayne DaKoski and Alex
Harris, junior Mike Morrison and sopho-
more Wes Stockbarger.


Stockbarger has enjoyed quite a week.
Aside from competing in what is consid-
ered one of the marquee events of the out-
door track season, he has also received the
Southeastern Conference Field Athlete of
the Week award.
Stockbarger received the award after he
picked up qualifying bids for the NCAA
Regionals in three events at the Diet Pepsi
Classic in Gainesville on April 1.
The rest of the team will head to
Tallahassee to compete in the Seminole
Invitational.
Once there, the Gators will face off
against SEC rivals Auburn and Kentucky, as


well as in-state rival Florida State.
This is the second week in a row that
at least one athlete has
left the bulk of the team
to travel cross-country.
Last week, seniors Shane
Stroup and Daniel Parker,
sophomores Jeremy Miller,
Ryder Leary and Enoch
Nadler. and freshman
Stockbarger Jeremy Criscione went
to California to compete at the Stanford
Invitational.
UF men's track and field coach Mike
Holloway hopes to improve on his team's


performance from last week
"We've got a lot of work to do," Holloway
said. "Right now, we have guys doing stuff
that we just don't do here at the University
of Florida. We need to start getting better
and get some intensity. I know what this
group is capable of and right now they are
not meeting my expectations."
The women's track and field team will
head to Athens, Ga., to compete in the Spec
Towns Team Invitational.
The squad will face some of the best
competition in the country, including South
Carolina, Georgia, Michigan State, Georgia
Tech and Purdue.

Gators prepare for regionals


By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

On paper, the Gators are already
there. They have better records,
they have higher scores and they've
already defeated two of the teams
this season. But as they compete in
the NCAA South Central Region
Championships on Saturday in
hopes of qualifying for the national
championships, they're still focused
on the task at hand even if it's so
dose that they can almost taste the
chalk dust in the air.
Twoweeksago,intheSoutheastem
Conference Championships, the


UF gymnastics team faced some of
the top teams in the nation and fin-
ished third. No. 1 Georgia and No. 5
Alabama, the only two teams to de-
feat the Gators all season took home
the competition's top honors, leaving
UF with bronze.
No. 9 UCLAand No. 18 Arkansas
are the only top-20. teams in the
Gators' regional bracket, a far cry
from defending national champion
Georgia and perennial powerhouse
Alabama in the SECs. And UF
just needs to place in the top two
to get an invitation to the NCAA
Championships in Corvallis, Ore.

"It's definitely not hard to

But UF coach Rhonda Faehn said
the Gators could be confident with-
out getting ahead of themselves.

same as every other competition this
year," she said. "We put the focus on
ourselves and go out there. From the
first person who starts the floor rou-
tine to the last person on the balance
beam, we want to stay in the moment
and not see it as qualifying for nation-
als or what other teams are doing."
The meet's other competitors, No.
30 Illinois, No. 42 Illinois-Chicago
and No. 49 Southeast Missouri State,
all have average scores of more than
3 points less than the Gators' average,
a nearly insurmountable gap.
So going into the meet, the Gators
may turn out to be their own worst
enemy.
"Any gymnastics coach will tell
you, from the conference champion-
ships to nationals is the hardest time
because there is the two-week break
in between each meet," Faehn said.
"It's definitely not hard to get them
mentally ready. The hard part and the
challenge right now is keeping them
physically healthy. This is a time
when we're having a lot of minor
things creeping up and a lot of the
wear and tear from the season."
Sophomore Tracey Rai, who has
competed on the vault, balance beam
and floor routine for the Gators this
season, had surgery on her right
elbow to remove a bone chip. Faehn
said she knew it would compromise
Rai's ability to perform for the rest
of the postseason, but it was more
important to have the operation done
early enough to be ready to compete
again next season.
But as several other Gators recov-
er from more minor ailments like sore
muscles and the flu, senior co-captain
Katie Rue said the Gators are well
enough to reach the one goal they set
for themselves.
"We just have to do our job and
keep doing what we've done," she
said.


Unranked UF


travels to face


improved UK

By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

The slumping Gators just can't catch a break.
After failing to make the cut for Baseball America's Top
25 for the first time this season, UF picked up its seventh
loss in nine games Tuesday, falling to North Florida, a team
that was playing in Division II last season.
And just when it looked like the team could cruise
out of its slump with this weekend's road series against
the perennial Southeastern Conference whipping boys,
Kentucky, the Wildcats seem poised to
ruin the Gators' coming-out party.
After finishing last in the SEC East
.- for five consecutive years while never
.... ^ amassing a double-digit win total in
conference play during that span, the
Wildcats are a surprising 23-7 this sea-
son, and their SEC record of 5-4 puts
McMahon them two games ahead of UF (19-14,3-6
SEC) in the division standings.
"We knew coming into the season that this was going to
be a tough road and that every game in the SEC was going
to be a battle," infielder Brandon McArthur said. "The SEC
is improving a lot."
Added McMahon: "Kentucky is showing signs of be-
coming a very good program. "They are three years into
their [rebuilding] plan, and I think they are having a great
year. They're becoming a veteran dub, and they are a very
good ball dub in every phase of the game."
After starting the SEC schedule by taking two out of
three from Arkansas, the Gators have lost five out of their
last six conference games.
"The losses haven't been a result of lack of effort or lack
of hard work," McMahon said. "So you just have to keep
working at it."
UF has not lost a series to Kentucky since 1999, and the
Wildcats last winning season in the SEC came in 1996.
Senior right-hander Bryan Ball (4-4, 3.94 ERA) and
sophorhore right-hander Bryan Augenstein (6-2,2.51 ERA)
will start for the Gators tonight and Saturday, respectively,
but the Gators have yet to name a Sunday starter.
One possibility would be freshman right-hander Chas
Spotswood (1-0, 8.24 ERA), who allowed two runs in 3 'A
innings in Tuesday's loss to North Florida.
The Gators' Sunday starters have struggled, and UF op-
ponents have scored a combined total of 37 runs the past
two Sundays alone. The offense hasn't been much better.
Expected to be a high-powered lineup heading into the
season, the Gators are hitting just .258 on the year and a
dismal .236 in SEC play. UF also aims the lowest fielding
percentage in the SEC at .957.
"We are just taking it one pitch at a time, one inning at a
time," McArthur said. "We are actually drawing closer."
If the Gators still have any thoughts of repeating as SEC
Champions, they'd better hope so.

Gators forward Adrian Moss
would like for the university to en-
gage in an experiment a virtual
Gallup poll of sorts to demon-
strate how UF was, is and always
will be a football school.
He would like to see the school
schedule its annual Orange and
Blue spring football game and a na-
tional championship parade for the
basketball team on the same day.
"Ooh, there will be debate,"
Moss said. "They'll probably have
the parade after the Orange and
Blue game. They don't want to
mess up that game."
Just four days after the Gators


secured their first national title in
basketball in school history, the
banter is oni Is the school still a foot-
ball-first institution? Some might
challenge that idea. Most, however,
will just laugh and wait until the
fall when hordes of entranced fans
will forget about that magical team
that defeated UCLA.
"Florida's not a basketball
school. Florida is always going to
be a football school," Moss said.
"Whenever someone says, 'The
University of Florida,' it's always,
'How's the football team doing?'
We're just the guys running around

Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Corey Brewer, Lee

Sure, Noah isn't the NBA's second all-time

NBA Finals, Humphrey never perfected the

They all played well into their 30s, maybe
even playing a year or two past their prime,
striving for that one ring that eluded, and in
some cases, that haunted them.
Pete Maravich scored more points than any


player in the history of college basketball and
earned a spot in the NBA Hall of Fame but
said on numerous occasions he would trade it
all for a championship.
In a recent CBS documentary, it was
revealed that Maravich was suicidal after

season, retiring, then watching the Celtics
win a championship the following year.
For everything Dan Marino achieved in

Championships change everything. Just
ask Chris Richard, Adrian Moss, Walter

walked on water since winning the NCAA

Perhaps society shouldn't put so much
stock in a ring. Sometimes an athlete gets
trapped on terrible teams (Maravich), never re-
ceives the running back he deserves (Marino)
or is punished thanks to the birth of Michael
Jordan (Malone, Barkley, Stockton).

Billy Ball builds
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Str ff Writer

The Rowdy Reptiles, the House of Hr6rors, -
Billy Ball and the birth of a champion.
Rick Pitino almost derailed all of it.
When UF athletics director Jeremy Foley
first contacted then-Marshall coach Billy
Donovan about the Gators' coaching vacancy,
he also sought out Donovan's mentor, the
man under whom he first coached.
Pitino was in the middle of a Final Four
run with Kentucky, but he took the time to
speak with Foley about his protg&6.
"I called Rick to talk to him about Billy and
he said, 'Jeremy, before I tell you about Billy,
I'm going to tell you I told him not to take
your job. I don't think you have a good job.'"
Foley recalled.
Pitino believed that the school didn't have


elite program
the righi commitment to e a player on the
nationallstage and dicd't want Donovan to
head irto a situation where he didn't believe
he cold be l.suci i tru!
.- But there Pitino was Monday night, watch-
ing Billy the Kid win the national champion-
ship at a place where some believed it wasn't
possible, a basketball champion at a "football
school," one that he had built from scratch.
"I'll tell you one thing Dr. Cassisi, our
faculty rep, grabbed me before the game,"
Donovan said. "He said 'You know some-
thing Billy, the greatest thing you can do in
life is start something from scratch and build
it up to an elite level. Over a 10-year. period,
there's been a lot of hard work and sweat
that's gone into it.'"
And that is exactly what Donovan has
done: He's made UF into a basketball power-
house. In 10 years, he's been to eight NCAA
Tournaments, shared three Southeastern

Conference regular season titles, won two
SEC Tournaments, been to two national title
games and capped the Donovan decade with
a national championship victory against
UCLA.
Where it all began, however, was with
Foley picking up the phone and calling
Donovan, ultimately convincing both him
and Pitino that UF was a place where a
champion could be built.
"We didn't expect' it to happen over-
night," Foley said.
Which is exactly why UF gave Donovan
a six-year contract right off the bat, and he
produced results before his original deal
was even up, leading the Gators to the na-
tional title game in 2000.
But now Donovan has taken the Gators


on its back, regardless of who returns, not than the hunters, a program to be emulated

As a firey young coach at Marshall, Billy Donovan was dissuaded from coming to UF by
his mentor and former coach Rick Pitino.

have tasted and even fewer have swallowed
up a second time.
So now Gators fans are faced with one
compelling question: How has UF basket-
ball changed as a result of its sudden rise to
prominence?
"That's a really, really interesting ques-
tion because I've always been a big, big
believer that things that have happened in
' the past, negatively or positively, don't af-
fect your future," Donovan said. "I believe
I have to work harder now as a head coach,
and what I mean by that is we've got to try
to continue to recruit good, quality kids."
UF will enter next year with a target


again.
Grant interviewed for the job at Delaware
this spring, and Jones turned down the chance
to lead Morehead State.
Larry Shyatt, on staff since 2004, has been a
head coach twice, and has said that he would
be one again only in the perfect situation.
"I believe whoever is on our team next year
has got to work harder than they did last year,
will have to be more of a team than they were
last year," Donovan said. "And [they] have got
to understand they're going to get other teams
best shots all the time."
And that's what it has become for the
Gators. They've become the hunted rather


Losing streak plays key role in creating championship team

Two of the Gators' four starting sophomores, SEC Tournament MVP Taurean Green
(right) and SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year Corey Brewer, helped the Gators
improve from a series of mid-season losses.
S' k'


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

The scene in Tuscaloosa, Ala., that day was
staggering. To the untrained eye, everything
appeared to be slipping away.
UF had lost three straight and six of 11. This
was the same squad that started the season 17-
0, the best start of any team to don the orange
and blue.
But on that day, it appeared as though the
Gators could do nothing right.
In the words of sophomore forward Corey
Brewer:
"We've been getting out-rebounded every
game, it seems like. We've got to get tougher.
We finally got our offense where it needed to
be, but defensively we just broke down in ev-
ery aspect of the game. Teams are just playing
us different. They're throwing different things
at us. We've just got to adjust. It's getting late.
It's getting real late, so we've got to learn
quick."
Where others may have seen despair, how-
ever, the one man who knew saw hope. He
saw a team that wasn't executing, yet wasn't
getting blown away either.
"Those three losses, to be honest, I felt
pretty encouraged," UF coach Billy Donovan
said. "I just didn't want our guys to get down.
I wanted them to see 'Hey listen, this is what
we're giving up, and we're losing in overtime
and losing by 2 to 3 points. Imagine if we shore
this up, how good we can be.' That was kind
of the message I tried to give them during that
time."
And, a funny thing happened after a team
meeting that week.
The Gators re-emerged from their shell.
First, sophomore center Joakim Noah
dropped 37 points on Georgia.
Then UF bowled over Kentucky at Rupp
Arena, the Gators' first win there since 1998.
Then, fighting the flu, Taurean Green
rolled out of bed, threw up a few times and
scored 18 points against Louisiana State in the
Southeastern ConTer mce Tournament semifi-


nals.
Then they broke the curse of Sptfrrier to
win the SEC Tournament.
And that was before UF rolled through the
NCAA Tournament, putting four players on the
All-Tournament team while making Noah into a
national celebrity and curiosity in the process.
But long before the confetti flew in the RCA
Dome, or even before the three-game losing
streak, the Gators were way off the national
radar, beginning the year unranked.
After season-opening victories against St.
Peter's and Albany, the Gators headed to New
York to face Wake Forest in the Coaches vs.
Cancer Classic, and Adrian Moss was asked if
UF could win that entire tournament.
"Why not?" .was his simple response.
And that's when Taurean Green became
a star, scoring 23 points in a win against the
Demon Deacons and again in a defeat of
Syracuse.
"We just came out here and shocked the
whole nation, basically," Green said at the
time.
That same nation, however, would have
been more shocked if you told them that on
a Monday night in April, the Gators again
would be holding a trophy high above their
heads.
And where did it all start?
If the players are to be believed, they knew
during summer pick-up games that they had
the potential to be great, even if the public at
large wasn't going to buy it.
"We didn't get any respect," Green said af-
ter winning it all. "You know, the whole team
just had the mindset of, 'OK, we know what
we have to do, and we have to prove some-
thing to everybody coming out every game.' I
think just the mindset of our team caused us to
play the way we played."
But for Donovan, the championship run
came from the successive losses to eventual
NCAA Tournament teams because after that
stretch, the Gators defense was better than it
has ever been.
UF allowed just 59.4 points per game dur-


ing its season-ending 11-game winning streak
and didn't allow a team to score more than 62
points in the NCAA Tournament.
"You're playing a game right now, living
each moment. Play each moment," Donovan
said. "They peaked and probably played well
because of the setbacks we had in February
that helped us grow."
Those pitfalls helped them climb the
Everest of college basketball, where an orange
and blue flag is now planted and flapping
in the breeze. Noah is probably right there,
pounding his chest and screaming for some-
one to come and knock him and his boys off
the top of the mountain.

UF center Joakim Noah took charge to end
the season and took over the NCAA Tourna-
ment, blocking a record 29 shots during UF's
march to the national championship.


be a part of something so significant."
So has UF moved itself onto that elite
echelon? Maybe not, but Foley believes that
the school's achievements will go a long way
toward making that day a reality.
"It would go a long way to establishing the
tradition you want 20 years from now. I think
to have that tradition we want, to be recognized
as one of the best, you've got to have a few of
those banners up there," Foley said. "That's
what the Kentuckys have, the Indianas, the
North Carolinas, the Dukes. We're not there
by any stretch of the imagination. But like Billy
said, it has to start somewhere, and hopefully
it starts right here."

About a week later, standing on the press table in the RCA Dome, he pounded his chest as the MVP of the national champions, picking up an NCAA Tournament-

Noah certainly has come a long way since being a "non-factor" as a high schooler at Garfinkel's camp.
With a spectacular season, he has written himself in the lore of historic UF athletes, arguably rivaling the legacies of students named Spurrier, Smith and Wuerffel.
He has become an icon, and he is the alligatorSports Player of the Year.
