UF forward Al Horford announces to Gators fans that he and fellow sophomores Joakim Noah and Corey Brewer
will return for their junior seasons during the basketball team's championship pep rally Friday night.



Sophomores pledge return


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Masked by an enormous black
tarp, the court on which UF won
its national championship in
Indianapolis was supposed to pro-
vide the evening's big surprise when
it was unveiled Friday night at the
O'Connell Center.
But as a crowd of 10,406 cel-


ebrated the Gators' title, a trio of
sophomores stole the show.
Purchased by UF for $70,000 after
the conclusion of last week's Final
Four, the court will be refinished and
made into the new playing surface at
the O'Connell Center.
Upstaging the announcement,
however, famed UF sophomores
Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey
Brewer pulled off a well-executed
act to announce their intentions to


spend another year in orange and
blue.
As forward Chris Richard began
to introduce next season's UF roster
to the crowd, Horford seized the
microphone.
"I feel like we've accomplished
everything we've needed to," he
said to a smattering of boos.
Then, Noah took the mic from his

Football ticket


registration


starts today

By ALl SOULE
Alligator Contributing Writer

Starting today, students will be able to register for
the 2006 football season lottery and purchase tickets for
Gator Growl, the annual Homecoming pep rally all
in one phone call. The 2006 season marks the 100-year
anniversary of Gators football.
Beginning at 6 p.m., students who have a valid
eight-digit UF ID number can register for the lottery
by calling the G.A.T.O.R.S. phone system. The local
number is (352) 384-3262, and
the nationwide number is (877)
428-6747. The lottery will run
until April 19 at 11:59 p.m., and
tickets must be pre-purchased
while registering for the lottery.
Visa, MasterCard, American
Express and Discover are ac-
cepted, according to Gatorzone.com.
The University Athletic Association conducts the
lottery during the week of April 24. Students should
make sure they have a valid e-mail address with the
Registrar's office because winners will be notified by
e-mail of their status by April 28.
Eric White, producer of Gator Growl, said students
can purchase $12 tickets to the Homecoming pep rally
while registering. The event is scheduled for October
6.
"The reason the price was increased was because
we had a ticket subsidiary for $200,000 from Student
Government last year," he said. "This year, we wanted
to make Gator Growl self-sufficient."


Three UF graduate programs drop in Top 50 rankings


* THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE FALLS
AND THE BUSINESS SCHOOL CLIMBS.

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org

UF's graduate programs received mixed
results in a popular national ranking with
two programs losing ground, one holding
steady and another climbing a single slot.
U.S. News & World Report, the magazine


noted for its annual rankings of higher edu-
cation, unveiled its list of the Top 50 gradu-
ate programs in each field and UF officials
were quick to suggest ways to improve. -
Graduate programs in UF's colleges of
Education, Engineering, Law and Medicine
were ranked in the magazine's April 4 issue.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said there are
plans to strengthen graduate programs
by bringing in evaluators to review the
strengths and weaknesses of each depart-
ment.
Education's program fell the hardest,


"Education rankings are very, very
heavily influenced by how much
money you spend on research."

dropping 10 spots to No. 35.
"Education has a lot of volatility," said
Robert Morse, the director of data research
at U.S. News & World Report. "Going down
10 spots is somewhat typical in education.


It's not as rare as in other disciplines."
Morse said the magazine judges each
discipline by different criteria, but research
accounts for 30 percent of the total ranking
in both education and medical programs.
Research expenditures in the College of
Education declined significantly this year,
which knocked down its ranking.
Fouke, the university's chief academic of-
ficer, said the program expected the plunge.
"Education rankings are very, very heav-

White light added to traffic lights


By LYDIA VILLAMAR
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville drivers can now see
lights in four colors at major intersec-
tions in Gainesville and other cities in
Florida: green, yellow, red and white.
The white light, also known as
the confirmation light, allows police
officials to see when drivers are run-
ning red lights without actually seeing
the light turn red, said Holly Walker,
District 2 safety engineer with the
Florida Department of Transportation.
Police officials are able to tell if a
driver runs a red light from any direc-
tion and position on the road, allowing
easier access and maneuvering when
pulling over traffic violators, Walker
said.
"The benefit of the tool is safety and
efficiency," Walker said. "It allows of-
ficers to handle this in a safe way, and
they don't have to run red lights in
order to catch someone."
The light, placed either on top of
or below the traffic light box, is wired
into the same electrical circuit as the
red light, Walker said. Once the light
changes to red, the white light turns
on.
In Florida, the lights were first in-
stalled in Clearwater in 2001, Walker
said. They are now used in various
locations in six of the seven Florida
public districts, including five busy


"If we save one life if we
stop one accident from occur-
ring- then it's worth it."
Lt. Keith Faulk
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
spokesman


Gainesville intersections.
Many crashes are directly related
to running red lights, and the white
lights are a tool to assist and direct the
police department, said Phillip Mann,
supervising engineer for traffic opera-
tions for the city of Gainesville.
"One of the most common mis-
conceptions is the police department
can write more citations," Mann
said. Instead, the goal is to improve
highway safety and reduce injuries,
he said.
Florida DOT reports show that 33
percent of cases involving running a
red light include a fatality, said acting
Lt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
"If we save one life if we stop
one accident from occurring then
it's worth it," Faulk said.
The DOT has also seen a 15 percent
increase in traffic crashes .because of
red light running in the last five. years,
Faulk said.
"Everyone nowadays needs to get .


there quickly and doesn't realize the
dangers of getting out there," Faulk
said about being in the middle of an
intersection after a light has changed.
"They think, 'I can make it through
there.'"
A two-second delay usually follows
after one light turns red and the other
light turns green, but there are still
horrific crashes, Faulk said.
The number of traffic violations
given for running red lights is second
only to speeding tickets.
Drivers of larger vehides usually
anticipate the need for a longer area
to slow down, and the majority of ve-
hices that run red lights are cars, said
Sgt. Anthony Ferrara, one of the two
traffic safety team supervisors in the
Gainesville Police Department..
The Traffic Safety Team writes be-
tween 250 to 500 citations per month
for red light running, Ferrara said.
Violators can expect a ticket for $186.50
and four points on their drivers records
if. convicted of the violation.
The confirmation lights no longer
require officers to see the red light and
give them the advantage, Ferrara said.
The lights are installed at West
University Avenue and 13th Street,
West University Avenue and 34th
Street, West University Avenue
and Sixth Street, Archer Road and
Southwest 34th Street and Newberry
Road and 69th Terrace, Mann said.


Greeks clean


Gainesville

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

More than 900 UF students volunteered around
Gainesville on Saturday during the first ever Florida
Greek Service Day. The event was the largest one-day
service project to ever take place at UE
Members of the Interfraternity Council,
Panhellenic Council, Multicultural Greek Council
and National Pan-Hellenic Council came
Greek together to help out at several locations
Life including Peaceful Paths, the YMCA and
the Gainesville Health Care Center.
Members of the Panhellenic Council took part
in an "Extreme School Makeover" at Rawlings
Elementary School, where they cleaned the school,
planted flowers and helped with other yard work.
IFC service director Brian Engel said the group
made great improvements to the school.
"I went out there, and it's night and day what they
did," he said.
Cleanup work was also done at Einstein
Montessori School and Bell Nursery School.'
The four councils worked with the Greek honor
society Order of Omega to put the event together.
"I think it ran very smoothly," Engel said. "I was
expecting some bumps along the way. Overall it went
great."

Groups share 'one love' at International Talent Show


Dancers from the Friendship Association of Chinese Students and Scholars perform Saturday night at
the Volunteers for International Student Affairs talent show at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.


By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
-Alligator Contributing Writer

Breaking plates, swinging ma-
chetes, grass skirts and clanging
bamboo stalks were just some of the
props used as part of the dance acts
at the 44th annual Talent Show on
Saturday night.
Put on by the Volunteers for
International Student Affairs as part
of International Month, the event
packed more than 5,000 people into
the Stephen C. O'Connell Center.
The show, themed "One Love,"
featured eight multicultural groups
using dance to express their heritage
and national history.
Each performance was evalu-
ated based on originality, cultural
representation, costumes and cho-
reography.
"It shows no matter how dif-
ferent you are, there is this line of
unity," said Jessica Marshall, direc-
tor of the talent show.
SThis year, the typically traditional
night was also one of firsts.
The Indian Student Association
teamed up with its usual rival, UF
Bhangra club, to form Indian Inc.
After a wild. reaction from the


crowd, they took home the first-
place trophy for their collaborative
performance.
"The energy that everyone felt
together was amazing," said Juhi
Desai, president of the UF Bhangra
club.
And for the first time, the Greek
American Students Association en-
tered into the competition, ending
its performance with plate smashing
and table dancing.
"It was such a thrill to represent
Greece at this uni-
On versity," said GASA
Campus president Constantina
Alexandrou.
The Hispanic StudentAssociation
left with second place for its mix of
modem hip-hop dance and more
traditional numbers like meringue
and salsa, while the Filipino Student
Association placed third.
"Dancing is so important to
Hispanics," said Jorge Delgado,
president of the HSA dancers. "It
unites us around the globe."
The show was free and open to
the public, but donations were col-
lected for the international medical
humanitarian organization Doctors
Without Borders.


Extravaganza celebrates black female history, culture


* THE 54 PERFORMERS HAVE BEEN
PREPARING SINCE DECEMBER.

By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than 800 people filled the Phillips
Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday
night to watch the Black Female Extravaganza,
an event that showcased the singing, dancing
and acting talents of 54 black female UF stu-
dents.
In its 13th year, the show highlighted the
strength, empowerment, motivation and his-


tory of black women, said Daphne Charles,
dance director of Black Female Extravaganza.
A public relations senior, Charles has par-
ticipated in the show since her freshman year
and said she feels'that the event is a great way
to show the presence of talented black women
on campus.
"I didn't find another dance group on cam-
pus that I liked freshman year," Charles said.
"Black Female Extravaganza was my opportu-
nity to showcase my talents."
Performers have been preparing for the
event since December, Charles said. It wasn't
until a few weeks ago that performers from
the dance, singing and acting sections put

their different pieces together to witness the
entire production.
Charles worked with Jettrice Barnes, Black
Female Extravaganza acting director, and


Brandi-Hilson, Black Female Extravaganza
singing director, to create a two-hour show
that featured stories about teen pregnancy,
mother-daughter relationships and black his-
tory and culture.
At the end of the show, Charles, Barnes and
Hilson passed on the director torch to fellow
participants Shaterra Reed, Nikeisha Jackson
and Stephanie Dorestant, who will be respon-
sible for creating a script, choreographing and
planning next year's show. This year's direc-
tors chose the three women based on their
dedication, motivation, professionalism and
capability to take the show to the next level,
Charles said.

Golden goose

City officials and

residents should back off
W ith all the money that college students bring into
the Gainesville area, you might think that nonstu-
dent residents would be a little more accepting of
them.
Maybe they wouldn't.be quite so offended when students
move into their neighborhoods.
And maybe they could overlook the fact that college stu-
dents, on occasion, like to throw parties.
But alas, it is not so.
On Wednesday night, Gainesville officials got together
to discuss the possible implementation of more stringent
city codes. And though it hasn't been expressly stated, the
obvious intent' of those codes is to keep students out of
Gainesville neighborhoods.
One such proposed code would increase the warning pe-
riod for noise violations.
As it stands now, residents in single-family neighbor-
hoods can only have one noise warning in 90 days before
they face a fine. But Tom Saunders, Gainesville's community
development director, thinks that period should be extended
to 180 days.
"Some people actually schedule their parties around this
90-day warning period," he said.
But what did you expect, Tom? And if the proposed code
is enacted, won't students just schedule their parties around
the 180-day waiting period? The simple fact that students
respect the law enough to not have two noisy parties in a
three-month span isn't a prima-facie justification for more
restrictions.
But while most of the proposed changes would merely
amend existing city ordinances, one threatens to open up an
entirely new Pandora's box for Gainesville students.
City officials hope to encourage UF and SFCC to punish
students for off-campus citations.
Despite lobbying efforts by city officials, UF, for its part,
has refused to comply. Laurel candidate Paige Crandall, UF
associate dean of students, said it wasn't the university's
place to penalize students for off-campus transgressions.
And, of course, she's right. The university's job isn't to tell
students what they can and can't do off campus. That's why
we have GPD.
"We hope students who live off campus know why it's
important to be a good neighbor," Crandall said.
But if students do know, it's not because they've learned
from irritable Gainesville residents. Discriminatory policies
against students probably don't engender the kind of good-
will Crandall hopes to build.
Punishing students twice once by police and once by
the university just isn't fair. Would Gainesville residents
be OK if the city tried to have employers dock their pay every
time they picked up a noise violation? We think not.
So why should students be treated this way?
While we can't understand why some Gainesville resi-
dents think students should be discriminated against, we
can understand how it happens.
Students have historically remained largely detached
from city politics. Even though students make up roughly
half of the population of Gainesville, they rarely vote in
large enough numbers to sway local elections. Besides, most
students are only here for a few years before moving on to
jobs or education elsewhere, so they aren't as familiar or con-
cerned with Gainesville politics.
But students need to realize how much that apathy is
costing us.
Hopefully they will before busybody officials and indig-
nant residents ruin the college experience for good.

Bright Futures hinders UF's Top 10 goals


lorida Bright Futures Scholarships, the psychoso-
cial aspect of a "free lunch" education, combined
with our state's obsession with providing a no-
cost bachelor's degree to as many students as can fit in
Gainesville, will prove to be the biggest obstacle prevent-
ing UF from becoming a Top 10 university.
I grew up a state resident of North Carolina with
no lottery and little money for academic scholarships.
Although I made straight A's in high school and scored a
1420 on the SAT, I received exactly zero dollars in schol-
arships from the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill a Top 5 public university.
My story was not unique the vast majority of stu-
dents were faced with the task of raising around $40,000
to attend a four-year, in-state public school. Although
not free, this created a valuable sense of ownership of the
education. Students thought that since they were work-
ing and paying for their school, they did not want it to go
to waste. Block tuition investments were what you made
them students would take as many courses as pos-
sible because 18 credits cost the same as 12 in a semester.
Students felt that skipping class or performing poorly
was the same as throwing their money away.
At UF, most students never have to wonder about how
they will pay for college. Consequently, students seldom
gain meaningful employment experiences for purposes
other than funding a spending account. Education at
UF is seen by many as a handout or birthright, class at-
tendance a burden and studying a chore. The masses of
expendable goof-offs struggling to motivate themselves
only serve to cheapen the value of the degree for those
genuinely interested in studying at the most prestigious
school in the state.
Another main difference is how the flagship univer-
sities are managed. UNC at Chapel Hill, compared to


Matt Warren other public schools in the state,
Speaking Out is the most expensive with regards
to tuition and is not the largest in
size. The higher tuition allows for
funds to support research, faculty and facilities, and the
smaller enrollment keeps student-teacher ratios low.
Alternatively, other universities with larger student
populations exist for students to attend at lower cost.
In Florida, UF is the largest university by enrollment
but receives dismal compensation to run itself. Resources
are outdated and classes are overpopulated to the point
that many students cannot actually go to a physical
classroom to get to know their professors. There are so
many students here that my pre-med course is taught ex-
clusively online. I have had students whom I have never
met before in my life ask for letters of recommendation.
Students lucky enough to attend UNC realized it was
a reward for outstanding work.and took advantage of
their earned opportunity. To achieve its goal, UF should
consider doubling tuition rates Bright Futures cover-
ing half and students covering the rest.
This would solve most of UF's money problems, allow
them to fund programs, retain top faculty and give the
students the greater sense of ownership enjoyed by other
Top 10 programs. Block tuition should be implemented
to encourage students to take extra courses. UF should
then raise admission standards and decrease enrollment
to the point where students can actually sit in whatever
classes they choose. Other universities in the state should
remain fully covered by Bright Futures and have the ca-
pacity to accept the rest of the state's students who may
not be interested in paying or working for the education
that comes from a Top 10 university.
Matt Warren is a fifth year M.D./Ph.D. student and a
teaching assistant of three years.

Ticket increases are totally unjustified
I am shocked that the UF administration
has the audacity to increase student tickets by
over 66 percent to a staggering $70, especially
when the only credible opponents we face
at home this season are Alabama and LSU,
neither of which are hardcore UF rivals. As
much as I love the Gators, I find it appalling
that student tickets are drastically increasing
in price at the same time that tuition rates are
also on the rise. Where is all of this money go-
ing? If this trend continues, maybe we will be
a basketball school before long. I have already.
decided that I will forfeit my opportunity for
tickets. Maybe you should too. Shame on you,
UF.

UF can excel in more than just one sport
With all this talk of whether UF is a
football or basketball school, I cannot help
but wonder why we can't be both. As an
institution, UF does not simply pride itself
on only being an engineering school or a
law school, or any school for that matter. UF
prides itself, rather, on being a university that
excels in many areas of academia. To even get
into this school, the student body has to be
diverse and well-rounded: playing sports,
being active in clubs, and of course being
an academic achiever. Why should we not
have this same well-rounded attitude about
our athletic departments? There is no need
to draw a line between the two. UF and its
constituents represent success in all aspects of
academia, sports and life. UF: an accomplish-
ment school.

Fans mostly peaceful during celebration
On behalf of the Gainesville Police
Department, I want to express my pride and
gratitude for the behavior of the Gainesville
community during Monday night's im-
promptu victory celebration. After the Gators
basketball team won the 2006 National
Championship, Gators fans young and old
emptied onto University Avenue to celebrate
this great victory.
In preparation for the evening, GPD had
more than 90 officers on duty, including of-
ficers from all parts of our department. As a
police chief, you have to prepare for the worst
and hope for the best. I was extremely pleased;
all of the reports I received from my officers
talked about positive interactions they had
with celebrating fans.
Gators fans handled the win peacefully
and treated our officers with great respect, and
I applaud you. All in all, the 2006 basketball
team proved they were the best team in the
nation, and its fans were just as impressive in
the way they handled the victory.
Members of the Gators team couldn't have
said itbetter themselves. The Gator Nation has
the best fans in the world.
Norman Botsford
Gainesville Police Chief



Illegal immigrants deserve deportation
If we are to view immigration rationally,.
we must first get our facts straight. Adrianna
Sanchez is dearly wrong on several counts in
her letter on immigration printed April 5. First,
she asserts that these people are somehow
forced to come to the U.S. in search of work.
No one can force anyone to do anything; we
all have free will. Secondly, she claims that
these people are not criminals. Since when did


it become legal to cross international borders
and work without proper documentation?
Since these so-called immigrants all came here
against our laws and work here illegally, then
it is reasonable to conclude that they are crimi-
nals and should be treated as such. Also, labor
costs hardly affect the price a consumer pays
on agricultural products.
Ms. Sanchez also claims that the jobs these
criminals do are things Americans won't. This
is also a stretch from the truth. Since when was
there anything an American won't do? We live
in a world where borders are necessary and
the law is to be respected. Ms. Sanchez dearly
tries to make these criminals out to be helpless
victims when, in fact, they are far from it. They
break our laws when they willfully come into
this country illegally. Now it's time to send
them packing.
Justin Brand
SFCC student



Melone criticism wrong on many counts
Omar Abdelghany's criticism of Matt
Melone's editorial is typical of those who sup-
port his side in that it shows a lack of knowl-
edge and understanding of the military and
history, and it also shows a willingness to lie to
gain support. There have been no confirmed
reports of coalition forces using civilians'
heads as sporting equipment. White phospho-
rus is an illumination round used by most of
the military of the world, not a chemical weap-
on. The murder and chaos in Afghanistan and
Iraq is being perpetrated by people who
express their political opinions with violence.
As for the "terrorist Christian crusade," the
first crusade was a response to Muslim incur-
sion into Europe. The war for oil? Gas prices
remain more than a dollar above pre-invasion
prices. As to his charges of neoconservative


MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 7


racism, the U.S. enjoys excellent relations
with Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar
and Saudi Arabia, all of which are populated
almost entirely by Arab Muslims. And I didn't
realize the 3,000-some-odd people who died in
the Sept. 11 attacks were being aggressive; it
would appear to me that the 19 hijackers were.
Abdelghany and those like him are apologiz-
ing for people who behead little girls on their
way to school for being Christian, who bomb
people in prayer at mosques for not being the
same flavor of Islam as they are, and who are
generally intolerant of anyone who is not a
carbon copy of them. Al-Qaida and the Taliban
do these things, and it is fact. If that's honor-
able, I want no part of it.
I suggest Mr. Abdelghany be thankful he
lives in a country where he can express repre-
hensible opinions without fear for his neck.

SG should fight against ticket price hikes
This price gouging by the University
Athletic Association is outrageous. Where
does it stop? First they make student tickets
different to prevent resell. Their professed
goal was to make sure students actually at-
tend the game. Now they jack up the price
of season tickets by over half. Do they only
want rich, privileged students attending the
games? Where is our Student Government
on this? President Boyles, I'm looking at
you. Show some spine and help protect us
from these anti-student policies of the ad-
ministration and its cronies.
Help us, John; you're our only hope.

STUDENT LIFE

Hundreds strip down for third underwear dash


By MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer


Underwear was the only thing
to wear for about 600 UF stu-
dents who stampeded though the
streets Friday night.
The students gathered at the
Hub at midnight for The Great
Underwear Dash III, a 15-minute
jog through campus and along
University Avenue.
The -second run had 10 times
the number of runners the first
had, but the third dash had the
largest turnout in the event's
short history.
The creator, Beau Bergeron,
a graphic design junior, said he
came up with the idea after he,
learned about performance and
body art in one of his classes.
Mike Duncan, an industrial
and systems engineering senior,
was dancing at XS before he
joined the barely covered bunch.
He ran with his clothes in hand
and wandered the streets after
the run for an hour in search
of the wallet that fell out of his
pants.
Most runners wore whatever
they felt most comfortable in
- boxers, bras or pajamas.
Some people ran barefoot,
and others sported thongs or
costumes.
Chris Thompson, a chemical
engineering freshman, wore a
thong.
"This is my first underwear
dash, but I normally wear
thongs," Thompson said. "A lot


of people slapped my ass out
here tonight, but they didn't re-
ally say anything."
Electrical engineering sopho-
more Andy McCaddin said his
friend convinced him to wear
an adult diaper to up the ante of
their third dash.
He said he felt liberated and
plans to participate in future
dashes.
"It's kind of our own sport for
people that can't participate in
university athletics," McCaddin
said.
Half-naked skateboarders and
bicyclists rolled beside the knick-
ers-wearing runners who spilled
onto the street on University
Avenue, chanted Gators-pride
cheers and exchanged high fives.
"It was a lot like Monday


night after the game, except ev-
eryone tonight is in their under-
wear," said Natalie Regalado, an
integrative biology senior. "I'm
so proud of the Gators."
Bergeron invited members
of the basketball team to join in
after the pep rally that was held
in their honor. Bergeron said
he didn't think any of them at-
tended.
After the run, some people in
undies jumped into fountains to
cool off, paraded through Gator
Nights at the Reitz Union or
threw underwear parties.
The first event had about
50 participants, and about 500
came to the second, which was
called The Undie 500 because
Bergeron's goal was to have 500
runners.

GRU offers rebates for energy-efficient appliances


* THE REBATES RANGE FROM $55
TO $750.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville Regional Utilities' conser-
vation rebates are sunblock for the sum-
mer power bill burn.
The utility company is now offering
rebates to encourage homeowners to pur-
chase more energy-efficient appliances.
The rebates, which are applied as credit
to homeowners' utility bills, range from
$55 to $325 for electric modifications such
as high-efficiency central air conditioners.
Customers can also save $300 to $450


for solar water heating and $75.to $750 for
installation of natural gas systems.
But even though the rebates may save
more money in the long run, most of the
energy changes require an expensive ini-
tial investment.
UF sophomore Ana Perez, who rents
a home off University Avenue, said she
probably wouldn't make any changes to
her, house's energy usage since she isn't a
permanent Gainesville resident.
She believes that few students will be
able to justify the initial cost of conver-
sion, but she said the incentives are a great
idea.
"If the resources are there to convert
your home into a more efficient one, why
not consider it?" Perez said.


"If the resources are there to
convert your home into a more ef-
ficient one, why not consider it?"
Ana Perez
UF sophomore

GRU's newest rebates come as an ad-
dition to Congress' Energy Policy Act
of 2005, which allows tax breaks of-up
to $2,000 for homeowners who revamp
their energy usage through conservation
techniques.
The bill can award up to $500 on the
amount spent to update thermostats, caulk-
leaks or stop energy wastes and up to $300
for the purchase of energy-efficient air con-


ditioners, heat pumps or water heaters.
Along with the hundreds of other
provisions found in its 1,700 pages, the
bill also provides for $3,400 in tax credit
to owners of hybrid vehicles and extends
daylight-saving time by four weeks start-
ing in 2007.
A representative for the Lowe's on
Archer Road said 99 percent of the ap-
pliances they carry are compliant with
energy-efficient standards, although some
of the items covered under GRU's rebates
have to be installed professionally or are
not sold at do-it-yourself warehouses.
Also, for most of the rebates, GRU must
conduct an energy survey and a rebate
form must be turned into GRU within 30
days.

Speech addresses Africa


By CHRISTINA KORULA
Alligator Contributing Writer
African pictures and vibrant-colored
throws adorned the walls of the Center
for African Studies conference room. A
picture of a white woman, sitting on pa-
tio furniture in the middle of the African
desert while an African man served her
cocktails, was projected on the wall.
"What I am presenting today is a
work in progress," said guest speaker
Roderick Neumann, director of gradu-
ate studies in the department of interna-
tional relations at Florida International
University, to a group of 22 on Friday.
Neumann's research focused on
the books of Winston Churchill and
Theodore Roosevelt.
Both Churchill and Roosevelt had
similarities and differences in their view
and portrayal of the African landscape.
Neumann's study emphasizes that
Churchill and Roosevelt molded the
way Africa is seen today through tour-
ists' eyes.
"Though the mass tourism industry
has become bureaucratized, the ro-
mantic frame through which Africa is
viewed remains much the same as it did
100 years ago," Neumann said.
The fact that both these men were
icons in their own countries impacted
the way their writings were received
and embraced, he said,
"In the Age of Empire, print media


were the primary mean through which
the middle classes came to know them-
selves in relation to the world's other
nationalities and races," Neumann said.
"Thus, such elite travel writing served
to instruct the citizenry how to 'act'
American and British in overseas em-
pires."
"The way that children are
taught about Africa has to be
changed."
Agnes Leslie
outreach director for the Center for
African Studies

Spectators R. Hunt Davis, professor
emeritus of history and African Studies,
and Agnes Leslie, outreach director for
the Center for African Studies, said that
in order for the stigma to be lifted of
Africa being uncivilized, the media must
change the way it portrays the country.
"We have almost given up, but we
cannot," Leslie said of changing the im-
age of Africa. "The way that children are
taught about Africa has to be changed."
This way, even if the media's por-
trayal is false, children will know what
the truth is, Leslie said.
Clyde Kiker, a UF professor of eco-
nomics who attended the speech, said
he was moved by what Neuriann said.
"What reality is, none of us know,"
he said.

money you spend on research,"
Fouke said.
Last Fall, the College of
Education submitted errone-
ous data to U.S. News & World
Report, which showed the pro-
gram spending more on research
than it actually did. Once the er-
ror was discovered, UF officials
sent the correct information.
The lower the research expen-
ditures, the lower the ranking,
Fouke said.
"The interesting story is how
Sa change like that can make your
ranking drop so much," she said.
"So what does that say about the
way they calculate rankings?"
The magazine acknowledged
the rankings are sensitive.
UF's medical school sunk four
spots to No. 50, where it is tied
with three other institutions.
Engineering dropped a spot
to No. 26, and the Levin College


of Law maintained its spot at
No. 41.
The graduate program at the
Warrington College of Business,
on the other hand, moved up a
notch to No. 41.
"We have a pretty good idea
of why we are where we are,"
said John Kraft, the college's

roommate and asked the standing-room-
only crowd what they thought the sopho-
mores should do.
The response was a deafening cheer.
"So you want us to play here next year?"
Noah asked, inciting a chant of "two more
years" from the crowd.
And then came the clincher, the words
that every Gators fan wanted to hear: "We
back baby," Noah said.
All key cogs in the Gators' champion-
ship run, and all potential first-round NBA


Draft picks, Noah, Horford and Brewer are
planning on returning UF to defend their
championship next season.
"I had the chance to talk to those guys,
and that's what they want to do," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "I think they're having
a lot of fun here. I think they're a different
type of kids."
In a press conference prior to the pep
rally, Donovan said he hadn't had time
during the past few days to discuss his
players' plans, playing it coyly so that they
could make the announcement on their
own terms Friday.
While Donovan said he knew of his
players' intentions after the sophomore trio


"We back baby."
Joakim Noah
UF center

dropped by his office earlier in the after-
noon, the manner of their announcement
came as a surprise even to him.
"The whole thing, they did, I had noth-
ing to do with; I didn't know," Donovan
said. "I just told them what I was going
to do, kind of paint a picture and just say
I didn't know what those guys were going
to do."
Donovan really wanted to quash any
speculation and rumors that were likely to


mount during the next several weeks lead-
ing up to the NBA's early-entry deadline on
April 29. North Carolina's Sean May made
a similar statement last year at a school pep
rally after the Tar Heels won the national
championship, but he declared for the
Draft a few weeks later.
Donovan, however, is confident that his
players' very public pledge will stick.
"I thought it would be great if that's
what they wanted to do, to come out
publicly with it so everybody knowss"
Donovan said. "There's no more questions
about it or talk about it.
"It's over and done with, and this is
where they're at."

Queer Ball held for missed proms


By SASHA TALENFELD
Alligator Contributing Writer
After being kicked out of'multiple uni-
versities in the '90s and deemed a "disrup-
tion to campus" for dressing as a woman,
Ivana Black finally found a home at UE
Black, a senior at UF, knew she was
transgender in high school. As a dancer,
she performed the boy parts but hated it.
Finally, Black found drag, which com-
bined dancing and dressing as a woman.
"It was my ticket in," said Black, who
performs at University Club.
For 15 years, Black performed in
drag shows everywhere from London to
Bermuda, and she performed at the Reitz
Union while helping host Pride Student
Union's Queer Ball on Friday night.
The Queer Ball, which attracted about
200 students, was part of Pride Awareness
Month and was held to raise awareness
and serve as the gay prom people never
had in high school, said Ricardo Cortez,
the coordinator of the event.
"This event gets rid of gender bound-
aries. If a boy wants to wear a tuxedo, he
can, or if he chooses to wear a-dress, he
also can," said Cortez, who wore a dress
to the event.
Adelle Fontanet, president of Pride
Student Union, said this was important
for people who did not feel comfortable
bringing their partners to their own prom.
As part of the professional drag show,
Dee Ranged dressed in a Colonial-style,
white-powdered wig and full-skirted
dress made completely out of colorful
neckties.
For the amateur portion of the show,
three drag queens and two drag kings
competed to be crowned queen and king
of Queer Ball.
Piramno Rosetta, an anthropology
senior who went by the name Chastity,
danced, lip-synced and even kissed two
members of the audience who came to the
stage to give dollar bills.
Rosetta, who hopes to be a professional
gothic model and top drag queen, was
crowned queen of the Queer Ball.

"weird" way.
"Its great to come out to party, be crazy,
be gay and just be you," King said.

Tebow makes transition, runs little in first scrimmage


By IAN FISHER
S Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org

If only he didn't have to wear the non-
contact jersey, Tim Tebow might have been
a little less frustrated in his first spring
scrimmage at UF.
The red jersey, which the freshman
Tebow and senior 'Chris Leak both wear,
prohibits defenders from hitting either of
the two quarterbacks in order to guard
against potential injury.
Consequently, offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen said Tebow couldn't do what


he does best.
"We don't let him run around, the thing
that he does best right now," Mullen said.
"If he's struggling, [he's like], 'Let's go run
someone over.' We don't let him do that.
"It gets a little more frustrating for him,
but in the long run, it's going to be for the
best."
Tebow wouldn't mind being free to run
but certainly understands the restriction.
"It'd be fun, but it's not something they
really want me to do right now," Tebow
said Saturday after his first scrimmage at
UF. "You'll get those opportunities. You
just have to be patient and wait for them."


"He's a try-hard guy, He sat for
four hours with us yesterday. He's
either in the weight room, in class,
or he's in the office. He's kind of.
neat to coach."
Urban Meyer
UF football coach

Tebow said he's having fun in college
and that the transition from home school
hasn't been too bad. Only occasionally
does someone ask him for an autograph or


a photograph in class, he said.
Although Tebow has a lot to learn in
Coach Urban Meyer's offense, his work
ethic has impressed his coach.
"He's a try-hard guy," Meyer said. "He
sat for four hours with us yesterday. He's
either in the weight room, in class, or he's
in the office. He's kind of neat to coach."
Tebow couldn't gauge how comfortable
he is after just a handful of spring practices
with UF's mostly backup offense.
"It's hard to say," he said. "I'm just try-
ing to get in there and run a lot with the

Lochte sets three world records


By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer

One wasn't enough for former
UF swimmer Ryan Lochte.
After setting a world record in


the 200-meter individual medley
on Friday, Lochte set world-re-
cord marks in the 100- and 200-
meter backstrokes on Sunday at
the FINA Short Course World
Championships in Shanghai,

China.
As a member of the U.S. 400
medley relay team, Lochte became
the first swimmer ever to finish
the 100 backstroke in less than 50
seconds.
"It was my last race, and I just
wanted to give everything I had
because there wasn't another race
left," Lochte said.
He broke the world record in
the 200 IM with a time of 1:53.31,
.15 seconds faster than the previ-
ous time set by Hungary's Laszlo
Cseh in 2005. In the 200 backstroke,
Lochte finished in 1:49.05 to break
Austria's Markus Rogan's record
of 1:50.43.
"I've thought about break-
ing world records before,
but [Sunday night] I was
just going out there, racing
tough and having fun."
Ryan Lochte
Former UF swimmer

In all, Lochte earned six med-
als, three of which were gold for
the 200 backstroke, the 200 IM and
Thursday's 400 IM.
Lochte was named the Best
Male Athlete at the Short Course
World Championships and was
given the FINA Trophy for his ef-
forts.
"With the first world record, I
was so shocked that I didn't think
it had really happened," Lochte
said. "I've thought about breaking

UF to play inaugural event


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Writer

The UF men's golf team returns to action
today after a three-week break to compete
in the inaugural United States Collegiate
Championship in Alpharetta, Ga.
"It's always fun to go to a first-year event
and see how it is and get to see a new, differ-
ent golf course," UF coach Buddy Alexander
said. "[It's] another opportunity to play
against the best, so it should be a good
week."
The No. 3 Gators face a familiar oppo-
nent, No. 1 Georgia, in the 13-team tourna-
ment. This season, Georgia has a 2-1 record
against UF.
During UF's last outing in the Chris
Schenkel Invitational on March 19, the team
placed second, falling two strokes behind
No. 19 North Carolina.
Seniors Brett Stegmaier, James Vargas
and Matt Every will compete in their last
regular season event before the Southeastern
Conference Championships.
Every was recently named one of 10


semifinalists for the 2006 Ben Hogan Awrd,
which is presented to the nation's top men's
golfer based on his results in collegiate or
amateur competitions.
Freshmen Toby Ragland and Billy
Horschel accompany the trio of seniors to
The Golf Club of Georgia.
The duo has combined for five top-10
finishes and one top-five fin-
ish since the beginning of he
Men's spring season.
Redshirt sophomore
Golf Manuel Villegas rounds out
,... the roster as an individual
competitor for the first time
since the Gator Invitational on Feb. 19 when
he finished tied for 29th.
Since the Gators have not competed in a
sanctioned event in several weeks, Alexander
said he is interested to see how the team will
fare in the tournament.
"You see some uninspired play during
those times, so it's hard for me to really tell
how they'll play [today]," Alexander said.
"These are kind of the dog days before the
postseason."

"Each day, you try to get a little bit bet-

Mullen said Tebow has looked both
great and inexperienced, depending on
the complexity of the plays and schemes
he is given.
"The more advanced we get with him
and the more advanced the defensive
schemes are, the slower [the progress is]

was just going out there, racing tough and

Along with his world r.--cL'!, Lochte
also broke four Amerian and three
NCAA records and won three individual
NCAA tites during the ast two weeks,
In his last meet with the UP team,
Lochte earned his secontd-conseative
NCAA lMen's Swimmer of the Year title
March 26 at the NCAA Championships
in Atlanta.
After a quiet first day at the Short
Course Championship, Lochte seemed to
befighting fatigue.


On WednV day, he finished fifth in the
200 freestyle and ninth in the 100 butterfly,
and he earned his first medal, a bronze,
with the 400 free relay team,
In the second day of competition,
he was able to win is first gold at the
expense of US, Olympic gol medalist
Michael Phelps, Lochte won the 400 IM
with a time of 4:02A9 one-half second
quicker than Phelps' American record,
"Traveling over here, it was tough get-
ting used to the time change," Lochte said.

LOUIS, from page 20

a following of regular Florida
folks who, in the heart of Alachua
County, have discovered a group
of diamonds no longer hidden in
the rough.
This just doesn't happen
- championship teams returning
all five starters. Not in 2005, when
North Carolina's title team lost ju-
niors Rashad McCants, Sean May

Not in 2004, when Connecticut

sacrificed junior Ben Gordon
to the pros for a championship
team. Not in 2003, when fresh-
man phenom Carmelo Anthony
took his ring and left Syracuse for
the Denver Nuggets. Forget 2002;
sophomore Chris Wilcox bolted
from Maryland. Duke's 2001 and
Michigan State's 2000 squads
didn't lose any early entrees, but
both graduated starters from their
title teams.
Then the same pattern re-
emerges. Junior Rip Hamilton
left UConn's 1999 team while
junior Nazr Mohammed exited
Kentucky's 1998 team and on and


on and on.
Cherish this team; you may
never see a group so eccentric
again. With the NBA's 19-year-old
age minimum, most future title
contenders will have their stud
freshmen on board for a one-and-
done type season.
So while Noah, Brewer and
Horford could have banked as
lottery draft picks with a college
championship to boot, they seem
to have declined. Noah, for one,
ignored a longtime mentor.
"If he's slated to be picked that
high, I hope Coach [Billy] Donovan
says, 'I think you should go,'" said


Bill McNally, Noah's high school
coach at Poly Prep in New York
City, before the Final Four.
Said one of Noah's teammates
in UF's hotel lobby after the UCLA
game: "If I was him, I would go
for sure. There's no reason why he
should stay."
And yes, Noah ignored my
advice.
Last Thursday I wrote he would
be foolish not to bite on NBA bait.
So Friday night when I en-
tered the O'Connell Center, I was
greeted with a heckling of: ."That
was the worst crappy article I have
ever read."


And later a chant of: "Louis
sucks."
Yup, I deserve it. Unless the '04s
lied to more than 10,000 fans, they
have proven us all wrong. They
have forced us to look into the mir-
ror and reshuffle our priorities.
In a world of billionaires, they
have told us it's OK to say, "No
thank you." In a time of egotism,
they have let us know it's alright to
think "team first."
You can bet that this will hardly
be their last shocker. Really, is
there anything this bunch can't

UF headed to NCAAs with win


By CHRIS WHTIE
Alligator Writer

The UF gymnastics team
captured a first-place win at
Saturday's NCAA South Central
Region Championships, which
came as no surprise to the Gators.
But which team was nipping at
their heels did.
Last week, UF coach Rhonda


Faehn said she expected a close
competition between the Gators
and No. 9 UCLA, but after the
Bruins were forced to count a fall
on the uneven bars and the bal-
ance beam, No. 18 Arkansas took
advantage, closed in on the Gators
and eventually finished second.
Even with the elimination of
her alma mater, UCLA, Faehn
said she was happy to see an-

other Southeastern Conference
team advance to the NCAA
Championships.
"It's bittersweet for me," Faehn
said of her alma mater UCLA's
defeat. "I'm glad to see UCLA not
advance. I'm proud of Arkansas and
what they did tonight. They hit the
meet; they were consistent."
The Gators and the Razorbacks
are two of five SEC teams advanc-
ing to national championships in
Corvallis, Ore., on April 20 to 22.
The 12-team national pool
will feature Alabama, Louisiana
State and defending Inational
champion Georgia from the SEC.
The group also includes Arizona
State, Oregon State, Oklahoma,
Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa State
and Utah. Faehn said her team's
performance at the regional cham-
pionship proved UF is ready for
SEC rivals and competition from
other teams at nationals.
"It's a very similar situation [as
it is] at regionals," Faehn said of
the national meet. "They've shown
me that they can stay very calm
and steady through it, so we're
ready."
The Gators placed first on the
uneven bars, the balance beam and
the floor routine, but took second
to UCLA on the vault. The Gators
counted penalties on the vault
- typically the team's strongest
event for taking steps on land-
ings, but Savannah Evans and
Tiffany Murry, who both scored a
9.85, anchored a second-place fin-
ish in the event.
With a score of 39.325, fresh-
man Corey Hartung placed second
in the all-around to UCLA's Kate
Richardson, who earned a 39.475.
Hartung said she was excited to
place in another all-around and
that she was just happy the team
made it to nationals.
"It didn't matter what the other
scores were," Hartung said. "We
were just about being consistent
and going to nationals."
The Gators will now use the
two-week break to rest and re-
build their strength, Faehn said.
"We'll take a few days off and then
it's back to the gym," she said. "We
still have one more meet to prepare
for."


Women clinch


share of SEC title

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The No. 3 UF women's tennis team clinched at least a share
of the Southeastern Conference regular season championship
with a 6-1 win against No. 22 Kentucky on Sunday.
But there was no excess celebration.
Winning the SEC has become a formality for the Gators (17-
1,10-0 SEC), who have now won 21 of the past 27 SEC titles.
"I get excited over it," said senior Alexis Gordon about win-
ning the SEC. "But I just expect it."
With the Gators hosting the SEC Tournament, it could sur-
prise few if UF's 131-1 all-time home record versus the SEC
receives another blemish.
The Wildcats (15-7, 8-2 SEC) gave the Gators a scare when
they became only the second team this season to sweep UF in
doubles. Miami was the only other team to do so this season.
UF came out firing in singles, something that quickly sent a
message to the Wildcats.
The Gators won their first sets on all six
courts in less than 30 minutes.
"I was real happy with the way we.
Responded in singles,"-UF coach Roland
SThorqvist said. "That's how you respond
to adversity.
'. '. "We played like we wanted to win an
~ SEC title. All six played hard and set the
Thornqvist tone early. When you want to win the title,
that's how you play, and that's how you compete."
Sixty minutes into singles play, sophomore Diana Srebrovic
clinched the win for the Gators with a 6-1, 6-1 victory against
Kentucky's Lara Maurer.
Gordon played in her last regular season home match on
Sunday and was honored beforehand, with her mother and 16-
month-old daughter, Imani, at her side.
"I was just thinking back over the years and when I-first
came here," Gordon said. "My first match as a freshman, all
the people who have played here before it was hard to deal
with."
Gordon won her No. 1 singles match (6-4, 6-2) with an ace
to cap a special day for her. Coupled with the win against No. 74,
Vanderbilt on Friday, the match also secured the Gators a No. 1
seed and a first-round bye in the SEC Tournament. Thornqvist
said this year's team has a chance to be just as good as the 2003
UF championship team.
The talent is as good as in 2003, but this year's team is still
maturing, which also means the upside is bigger, he said.
The Gators will travel to South Carolina on Saturday for a
chance to win the SEC title outright.
"If they really want to win [the SEC] outright, well see
a magnificent performance on Saturday," Thomqvist said.
"There's no telling how good we can be in May."


Gators rise to take road series from No. 5 Tennessee


* STEVENS PICKED UP BOTH
WINS FOR UF; ROUSSELL
HIT TWO HOME RUNS IN THE
SERIES.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

After a humbling sweep by
unranked Florida State last week,
UF softball coach Tim Walton
said his team wasn't "feeling
very good."
It seems-that the Gators just
needed some higher-ranked
competition. After defeating No.
5 Tennessee 6-4 on Friday, the
Gators split a Sunday double-
header, winning 2-0 and losing
8-0, to take the series from the


Volunteers in Knoxville.
Coming into the weekend, it
seemed like No. 24 UF (33-15,12-6
Southeastern Conference) would
struggle against Tennessee, a
team that boasts three of the 25
finalists for National Player of
the Year.
While junior Stacey Stevens
has led the UF pitching staff this
season, her accolades fall short
of Monica Abbott's, Tennessee's
two-time All-America pitcher.
But those awards meant noth-
ing this weekend, as the Gators
won their fifth consecutive SEC
series, taking two of three games
from the Volunteers.
"We're feeling great, facing
a pitcher like Abbott," Stevens
said. "Having as many big hits


"I can't say enough good
things about Stacey Nel-
son. Over and over again,
she cleans up my messes.
I come out with so many
more wins because of her
saves."
Stacey Stevens
UF pitcher

as we did is great. To have five
home runs off a player who plays
for the. national team, there's no
reason why we can't compete
with any other pitcher for the rest
of the season."
Stevens picked up both wins
for UF, and freshman Stacey


Nelson earned the save in game
two.
While Tennessee reliever'
-Megan Rhodes gave up three hits
and one run after replacing Abbot
in game two, Nelson came in and
threw 1.2 scoreless innings.
"I can't say enough good
things about Stacey Nelson,"
Stevens said. "Over and over
again, she cleans up my messes.
I come out with so many more
wins because of her saves.
"Abbott was struggling. They
put in Rhodes, and she didn't do
well. Nelson came in and kept our
lead and had extra momentum in
the [pitcher's] circle. Her style is
unlike any other, and we all love
having her as a teammate."
But the UF pitchers can also


thank shortstop Lauren Roussell,
who had two home runs and
three RBI in the series.
"Lauren Roussell had a phe-
nomenal weekend. She played
well both offensively and defen-
sively," Walton said. "We pitched
phenomenally, played great
defense and hit the heck out of
the ball."
After defeating such a highly
ranked rival, Walton feels ''6i-
dent in his team.
"Tennessee's- a really, really
good ball team," he said. "That's
one thing we're not going to fail
to notice, how good they are. We
haven't done anything different
this series than any other series.
"They came out and )they
wanted it. They wanted it bad."

UF continues slump, drops two of three to Kentucky


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

UF closer Darren O'Day entered the
game in the second inning, and it was still
five outs too late.
The UF baseball team (20-16, 4-8
Southeastern Conference) asked the se-
nior for his longest outing of the season
and ell to No. 23 Kentucky 8-6 after fresh-
man starter Chas Spottswood allowed six
runs in less than two innings.
"It's another disappointing loss for us
in every way," UF coach Pat McMahon
said. "I'm not used to this and don't ac-
cept it at all."
It was the third consecu-
S r tive Sunday that the Gators
tiors fell behind quickly, and
Base all apparently McMahon had
little interest in seeing the
match turn into another
blowout loss. O'Day's appearance on the
mound did calm the Wildcats' bats, but
ultimately the deficit was too much for UF
to overcome.
O'Day pitched four innings, allow-
ing five hits and one run, and the Gators
staged a three-run rally in the sixth.
In the eighth, UF put together another
strong offensive effort and brought the
game back to within two runs on four hits.
A Matt LaPorta -:olo home run with4.wo
outs in the top of the ninth gave UF a glim-
mer of hope, but Brian LeClerc grounded
out to end the game.
LaPorta is tied for the team lead in
home runs with seven, and he has hom-
ered in three straight games.
McMahon said the Gators failed to
fully capitalize on opportunities during
the eighth, noting David Cash's pop-up to
left field to end the inning.
But ultimately, he didn't fault -his

squad's effort.
"Our guys hurt, and that in essence is
good," McMahon said. "The fact is that
they understand and care."
Kentucky (25-8, 7-5 SEC) was all over
Spottswood in the first, rocking the fresh-
man with a single, double and home run,
while UF shortstop Adam Davis picked up
an error.
In the second, Spottswood picked
up two quick outs only to have Antone
Dejesus reach on a fielding error. Then
Kentucky's Collin Cowgill stepped up to
the plate and slammed the ball over the
left field wall.


The home run was the final pitch for
Spottswood and ultimately the game-win-
ning run.
Coming into the series, UF held a 9-1
advantage in the schools' last 10 meetings.
By losing Sunday, UF dropped its third
SEC series in four attempts. The Gators
did, however, avoid a sweep.
UF fell to Kentucky on Saturday in the
final 2.1 innings of a rain-delayed Friday
game. But later in the day, sophomore
starter Bryan Augenstein picked up his
third complete game of the season, as UF
squeezed out a much-needed 6-4 victory.
But the Gators have dropped seven of


ten, are unranked and-are now just four
games above .500 a far cry from the
team's preseason No. 2 ranking.
A silver lining from the weekend for
the Gators could be that UF lost by a com-
bined score of 20-19 in three games.
During the previous two weekends,
that Gators were hammered by a com-
bined 57-18.
"The differences between success and
failure are minuscule," McMahon said.
"It's so frustrating, and it gets to the point
where in the second inning, we don't com-
plete a play. Then you look to the end of
the game, and it made all the difference."

By LINDSEY FRANCO Alligator Writer Ifrancoealligator.org UF's graduate programs received mixed results in a popular national ranking -with two programs losing ground, one holding steady and another climbing a single slot. U.S. News & World Report, the magazine noted for its annual rankings of higher education, unveiled its list of the Top 50 graduate programs in each field -and UF officials were quick to suggest ways to improve. Graduate programs in UF's colleges of Education, Engineering, Law and Medicine were ranked in the magazine's April 4 issue. UF Provost Janie Fouke said there are plans to strengthen graduate programs by bringing in evaluators to review the strengths and weaknesses of each department. Education's program fell the hardest, "Education rankings are very, very heavily influenced by how much money you spend on research." Janie Fouke UF Provost dropping 10 spots to No. 35. "Education has a lot of volatility," said Robert Morse, the director of data research at U.S. News & World Report. "Going down 10 spots is somewhat typical in education. It's not as rare as in other disciplines." Morse said the magazine judges each discipline by different criteria, but research accounts for 30 percent of the total ranking in both education and medical programs. Research expenditures in the College of Education declined significantly this year, which knocked down its ranking.

4, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 AROUND GAINESVILLE White light added to traffic lights By LYDIA VILLAMAR Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville drivers can now see lights in four colors at major intersections in Gainesville and other cities in Florida: green, yellow, red and white. The white light, also known as the confirmation light, allows police officials to see when drivers are running red lights without actually seeing the light turn red, said Holly Walker, District 2 safety engineer with the Florida Department of Transportation. Police officials are able to tell if a driver runs a red light from any direction and position on the road, allowing easier access and maneuvering when pulling over traffic violators, Walker said. "The benefit of the tool is safety and efficiency," Walker said. "It allows officers to handle this in a safe way, and they don't have to run red lights in order to catch someone." The light, placed either on top of or below the traffic light box, is wired into the same electrical circuit as the red light, Walker said. Once the light changes to red, the white light turns on. In Florida, the lights were first installed in Clearwater in 2001, Walker said. They are now used in various locations in six of the seven Florida public districts, including five busy "if we save one life -if we stop one accident from occurring -then it's worth it." Lt. Keith Faulk Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman Gainesville intersections. Many crashes are directly related to running red lights, and the white lights are a tool to assist and direct the police department, said Phillip Mann, supervising engineer for traffic operations for the city of Gainesville. "One of the most common misconceptions is the police department can write more citations," Mann said. Instead, the goal is to improve highway safety and reduce injuries, he said. Florida DOT reports show that 33 percent of cases involving running a red light include a fatality, said acting Lt. Keith Faulk, spokesman for the Alachua County Sheriff's Office. "If we save one life -if we stop one accident from occurring -then it's worth it," Faulk said. The DOT has also seen a 15 percent increase in traffic crashes because of red light running in the last five years, Faulk said. "Everyone nowadays needs to get there quickly and doesn't realize the dangers of getting out there," Faulk said about being in the middle of an intersection after a light has changed. "They think, 'I can make it through there."' A two-second delay usually follows after one light turns red and the other light turns green, but there are still horrific crashes, Faulk said. The number of traffic violations given for running red lights is second only to speeding tickets. Drivers of larger vehicles usually anticipate the need for a longer area to slow down, and the majority of vehicles that run red lights are cars, said Sgt. Anthony Ferrara, one of the two traffic safety team supervisors in the Gainesville Police Department. The Traffic Safety Team writes between 250 to 500 citations per month for red light running, Ferrara said. Violators can expect a ticket for $186.50 and four points on their drivers records if convicted of the violation. The confirmation lights no longer require officers to see the red light and give them the advantage, Ferrara said. The lights are installed at West University Avenue and 13th Street, West University Avenue and 34th Street, West University Avenue and Sixth Street, Archer Road and Southwest 34th Street and Newberry Road and 69th Terrace, Mann said.

MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 5 Groups share 'one love' at International Talent Show Dancers from the Friendship Association of Chinese Students and Scholars perform Saturday night at the Volunteers for International Student Affairs talent show at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS -Alligator Contributing Writer Breaking plates, swinging machetes, grass skirts and clanging bamboo stalks were just some of the props used as part of the dance acts at the 44th annual Talent Show on Saturday night. Put on by the Volunteers for International Student Affairs as part of International Month, the event packed more than 5,000 people into the Stephen C. O'Connell Center. The show, themed "One Love," featured eight multicultural groups using dance to express their heritage and national history. Each performance was evaluated based on originality, cultural representation, costumes and choreography. "It shows no matter how different you are, there is this line of unity," said Jessica Marshall, director of the talent show. This year, the typically traditional night was also one of firsts. The Indian Student Association teamed up with its usual rival, UF Bhangra club, to form Indian Inc. After a wild.reaction from the crowd, they took home the firstplace trophy for their collaborative performance. "The energy that everyone felt together was amazing," said Juhi Desai, president of the UF Bhangra dub. And for the first time, the Greek American Students Association entered into the competition, ending its performance with plate smashing and table dancing. "It was such A thrill to represent Greece at this uniOn versity," said GASA CastliaiS president Constantina Alexandrou. The HispanicStudentAssociation left with second place for its mix of modem hip-hop dance and more traditional numbers like meringue and salsa, while the Filipino Student Association placed third. "Dancing is so important to Hispanics," said Jorge Delgado, president of the HSA dancers. "It unites us around the globe." The show was free and open to the public, but donations were collected for the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders. Extravaganza celebrates black female history, culture N THE 54 PERFORMERS HAVE BEEN PREPARING SINCE DECEMBER. By DONNA MITRANI Alligator Contributing Writer More than 800 people filled the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday night to watch the Black Female Extravaganza, an event that showcased the singing, dancing and acting talents of 54 black female UF students. In its 13th year, the show highlighted the strength, empowerment, motivation and history of black women, said Daphne Charles, dance director of Black Female Extravaganza. A public relations senior, Charles has participated in the show since her freshman year and said she feels that the event is a great way to show the presence of talented black women on campus. "I didn't find another dance group on campus that I liked freshman year," Charles said. "Black Female Extravaganza was my opportunity to showcase my talents."

6, ALLIGATOR 0 MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 Golden goose City officials and residents should back off With all the money that college students bring into the Gainesville area, you might think that nonstudent residents would be a little more accepting of them. Maybe they wouldn't-be quite so offended when students move into their neighborhoods. And niaybe they could overlook the fact that college students, on occasion, like to throw parties. But alas, it is not so. On Wednesday night, Gainesville officials got together to discuss the possible implementation of more stringent city codes. And though it hasn't been expressly stated, the obvious intent' of those codes is to keep students out of Gainesville neighborhoods. One such proposed code would increase the warning period for noise violations. As it stands now, residents in single-family neighborhoods can only have one noise warning in 90 days before they face a fine. But Tom Saunders, Gainesville's community development director, thinks that period should be extended to 180 days. "Some people actually schedule their parties around this 90-day warning period," he said. But what did you expect, Tom? And if the proposed code is enacted, won't students just schedule their parties around the 180-day waiting period? The simple fact that students respect the law enough to not have two noisy parties in a three-month span isn't a prima-facie justification for more restrictions. But while most of the proposed changes would merely amend existing city ordinances, one threatens to open up an entirely new Pandora's box for Gainesville students. City officials hope to encourage UF and SFCC to punish students for off-campus citations. Despite lobbying efforts by city officials, UP, for its part, has refused to comply. Laurel candidate Paige Crandall, LI associate dean of students, said it wasn't the university's place to penalize students for off-campus transgressions. And, of course, she's right. The university's job isn't to tell students what they can and can't do off campus. That's why we have GPD. "We hope students who live off campus know why it's important to be a good neighbor," Crandall said. But if students do know, it's not because they've learned from irritable Gainesville residents. Discriminatory policies against students probably don't engender the kind of goodwill Crandall hopes to build. Punishing students twice -once by police and once by the university -just isn't fair. Would Gainesville residents be OK if the city tried to have employers dock their pay every time they picked up a noise violation? We think not. So why should students be treated this way? While we can't understand why some Gainesville residents think students should be discriminated against, we can understand how it happens. Students have historically remained largely detached from city politics. Even though students make up roughly half of the population of Gainesville, fhey rarely vote in large enough numbers to sway local elections. Besides, most students are only here for a few years before moving on to jobs or education elsewhere, so they aren't as familiar or concerned with Gainesville politics. But students need to realize how much that apathy is costing us. Hopefully they will before busybody officials and indignant residents ruin the college experience for good. dindependent flrida alligato Emily Yehle EDITOR Bridget Carey MANAGING EDITOR Tom Ourrenberger OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions --LA RAFOR D ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions rlf APX 64ir-g55 10F o WF A5KT Bright Futures hinders UF's Top 10 goals lorida Bright Futures Scholarships, the psychosocial aspect of a "free lunch" education, combined with our state's obsession with providing a nocost bachelor's degree to as many students as can fit in Gainesville, will prove to be the biggest obstacle preventing UF from becoming a Top 10 university. I grew up a state resident of North Carolina with no lottery and little money for academic scholarships. Although I made straight A's in high school and scored a 1420 on the SAT, I received exactly zero dollars in scholarships from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill -a Top 5 public university. My story was not unique -the vast majority of students were faced with the task of raising around $40,000 to attend a four-year, in-state public school. Although not free, this created a valuable sense of ownership of the education. Students thought that since they were working and paying for their school, they did not want it to go to waste. Block tuition investments were what you made them -students would take as many courses as possible because 18 credits cost the same as 12 in a semester. Students felt that skipping class or performing poorly was the same as throwing their money away. At UF, most students never have to wonder about how they will pay for college. Consequently, students seldom gain meaningful employment experiences for purposes other than funding a spending account. Education at UF is seen by many as a handout or birthright, class attendance a burden and studying a chore. The masses of expendable goof-offs struggling to motivate themselves only serve to cheapen the value of the degree for those genuinely interested in studying at the most prestigious school in the state. Another main difference is how the flagship universities are managed. UNC at Chapel Hill, compared to Matt Warren other public schools in the state, Speaking Out is the most expensive with regards to tuition and is not the largest in size. The higher tuition allows for funds to support research, faculty and facilities, and the smaller enrollment keeps student-teacher ratios low. Alternatively, other universities with larger student populations exist for students to attend at lower cost. In Florida, UF is the largest university by enrollment but receives dismal compensation to run itself. Resources are outdated and classes are overpopulated to the point that many students cannot actually go to a physical classroom to get to know their professors. There are so many students here that my pre-med course is taught exclusively online. I have had students whom I have never met before in my life ask for letters of recommendation. Students lucky enough to attend UNC realized it was a reward for outstanding work-and took advantage of their earned opportunity. To achieve its goal, UP should consider doubling tuition rates -Bright Futures covering half and students covering the rest. This would solve most of UF's money problems, allow them to fund programs, retain top faculty and give the students the greater sense of ownership enjoyed. by other Top 10 programs. Block tuition should be implemented to encourage students to take extra courses. UF should then raise admission standards and decrease enrollment to the point where students can actually sit in whatever classes they choose. Other universities in the state should remain fully covered by Bright Futures and have the capacity to accept the rest of the state's students who may not be interested in paying or working for the education that comes from a Top 10 university.

Since these so-called immigrants all came here against our laws and work here illegally, then it is reasonable to conclude that they are criminals and should be treated as such. Also, labor costs hardly affect the price a consumer pays on agricultural products. Ms. Sanchez also claims that the jobs these criminals do are things Americans won't. This is also a stretch from the truth. Since when was there anything an American won't do? We live in a world where borders are necessary and the law is to be respected. Ms. Sanchez clearly tries to make these criminals out to be helpless victims when, in fact, they are far from it. They break our laws when they willfully come into this country illegally. Now it's time to send them packing. Justin Brand SFCC student Melone criticism wrong on many counts Omar Abdelghany's criticism of Matt Melone's editorial is typical of those who support his side in that it shows a lack of knowledge and understanding of the military and history, and it also shows a willingness to lie to gain support. There have been no confirmed reports of coalition forces using civilians' heads as sporting equipment. White phosphorus is an illumination round used by most of the military of the world, not a chemical weapon. The murder and chaos in Afghanistan and Iraq is being perpetrated by people who express their political opinions with violence. As for the "terrorist Christian crusade," the first crusade was a response to Muslim incursion into Europe. The war for oil? Gas prices remain more than a dollar above pre-invasion prices. As to his charges of neoconservative MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 7 racism, the U.S. enjoys excellent relations with Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, all of which are populated almost entirely by Arab Muslims. And I didn't realize the 3,000-some-odd people who died in the Sept. 11 attacks were being aggressive; it would appear to me that the 19 hijackers were. Abdelghany and those like him are apologizing for people who behead little girls on their way to school for being Christian, who bomb people in prayer at mosques for not being the same flavor of Islam as they are, and who are generally intolerant of anyone who is not a carbon copy of them. Al-Qaida and the Taliban do these things, and it is fact. If that's honorable, I want no part of it. I suggest Mr. Abdelghany be thankful he lives in a country where he can express reprehensible opinions without fear for his neck. Rajeev Desikan SFCC student, former U.S. Marine U M E SG should fight against ticket price hikes This price gouging by the University Athletic Association is outrageous. Where does it stop?

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 STUDENT LIFE Hundreds strip down for third underwear dash By MELISSA SMILES Alligator Contributing Writer Underwear was the only thing to wear for about 600 UF students who stampeded though the streets Friday night. The students gathered at the Hub at midnight for The Great Underwear Dash III, a 15-minute jog through campus and along University Avenue. The second run had 10 times the number of runners the first had, but the third dash had the largest turnout in the event's short history. The creator, Beau Bergeron, a graphic design junior, said he came up with the idea after he, learned about performance and body art in one of his classes. Mike Duncan, an industrial and systems engineering senior, was dancing at XS before he joined the barely covered bunch. He ran with his clothes in hand and wandered the streets after the run for an hour in search of the wallet that fell out of his pants. Most runners wore whatever they felt most comfortable in boxers, bras or pajamas. Some people ran barefoot, and others sported thongs or costumes. Chris Thompson, a chemical engineering freshman, wore a thong. "This is my first underwear dash, but p normally wear thongs," Thompson said. "A lot of people slapped my ass out here tonight, but they didn't really say anything." Electrical engineering sophomore Andy McCaddin said his friend convinced him to wear an adult diaper to up the ante of their third dash. He said he felt liberated and plans to participate in future dashes. "It's kind of our own sport for people that can't participate in university athletics," McCaddin said. Half-naked skateboarders and bicyclists rolled beside the knickers-wearing runners who spilled onto -the street on University Avenue, chanted Gators-pride cheers and exchanged high fives. "It was a -lot like Monday night after the game, except everyone tonight is in their underwear," said Natalie Regalado, an integrative biology senior. "I'm so proud of the Gators." Bergeron invited members of the basketball team to join in after the pep rally that was held in their honor. Bergeron said he didn't think any of them attended. After the run, some people in undies jumped into fountains to cool off, paraded through Gator Nights at the Reitz Union or threw underwear parties. The first event had about 50 participants, and about 500 came to the second, which was called The Undie 500 because Bergeron's goal was to have 500 runners. Students race toward University Avenue on Friday night for The Great Underwear Dash Ill. GRU offers rebates for energy-efficient appliances E THE REBATES RANGE FROM $55 TO $750. By DREW HARWELL Alligator Contributing Writer Gainesville Regional Utilities' conservation rebates are sunblock for the summer power bill burn. The utility company is now offering rebates to encourage homeowners to purchase more energy-efficient appliances. The rebates, which are applied as credit to homeowners' utility bills, range from $55 to $325 for electric modifications such as high-efficiency central air conditioners. Customers can also save $300 to $450 for solar water heating and $75.to $750 for installation of natural gas systems. But even though the rebates may save more money in the long run, most of the energy changes require an expensive initial investment. UF sophomore Ana Perez, who rents a home off University Avenue, said she probably wouldn't make any changes to her house's energy usage since she isn't a permanent Gainesville resident. She believes that few students will be able to justify the initial cost of conversion, but she said the incentives are a great idea. "If the resources are there to convert your home into a more efficient one, why not consider it?" Perez said. "If the resources are there to convert your home into a more efficient one, why not consider it?" Ana Perez UF sophomore GRU's newest rebates come as an addition to Congress' Energy Policy Act of 2005, which allows tax breaks of-up to $2,000 for homeowners who revamp their energy usage through conservation techniques. The bill can award up to $500 on the amount spent to update thermostats, caulk. leaks or stop energy wastes and up to $300 for the purchase of energy-efficient air conditioners, heat pumps or water heaters. Along with the hundreds of other provisions found in its 1,700 pages, the bill also provides for $3,400 in tax credit to owners of hybrid vehicles and extends daylight-saving time by four weeks starting in 2007. A representative for the Lowe's on Archer Road said 99 percent of the appliances they carry are compliant with energy-efficient standards, although some of the items covered under GRU's rebates have to be installed professionally or are not sold at do-it-yourself warehouses. Also, for most of the rebates, GRU must conduct an energy survey and a rebate form must be turned into GRU within 30 days. q 1 4, -I "I 9 F. f 9, 'N0 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Tim Hussin / Alligator Staff Scantily clad runners raise their arms while streaming down University Avenue in The Great Underwear Dash III on Friday night.

MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 9 ON CAMPUS Speech addresses Africa By CHRISTINA KORULA Alligator Contributing Writer African pictures and vibrant-colored throws adorned the walls of the Center for African Studies conference room. A picture of a white woman, sitting on patio furniture in the middle of the African desert while an African man served her cocktails, was projected on the wall. "What I am presenting today is a work in progress," said guest speaker Roderick Neumann, director of graduate studies in the department of international relations at Florida International University, to a group of 22 on Friday Neumann's research focused on the books of Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt. Both Churchill and Roosevelt had similarities and differences in their view and portrayal of the African landscape. Neumann's study emphasizes that Churchill and Roosevelt molded the way Africa is seen today through tourists' eyes. "Though the mass tourism industry has become bureaucratized, the romantic frame through which Africa is viewed remains much the same as it did 100 years ago," Neumann said. The fact that both these men were icons in their own countries impacted the way their writings were received and embraced, he said. "In the Age of Empire, print media were the primary mean through which the middle classes came to know themselves in relation to the world's other nationalities and races," Neumann said. "Thus, such elite travel writing served to instruct the citizenry how to 'act' American and British in overseas empires." "The way that children are taught about Africa has to be changed." Agnes Leslie outreach director for the Center for African Studies Spectators R. Hunt Davis, professor emeritus of history and African Studies, and Agnes Leslie, outreach director for the Center for African Studies, said that in order for the stigma to be lifted of Africa being uncivilized, the media must change the way it portrays the country; "We have almost given up, but we cannot," Leslie said of changing the image of Africa. "The way that children are taught about Africa has to be changed." This way, even if the media's portrayal is false, children will know what the truth is, Leslie said. Clyde Kiker, a UF professor of economics who attended the speech, said he was moved by what Neushann said. "What reality is, none of us know," he said.

Engineering dropped a spot to No. 26, and the Levin College The graduate program at the Warrington College of Business, on the other hand, moved up a notch to No. 41. "We have a pretty good idea of why we are where we are," said John Kraft, the college's dean. Kraft said the graduate business program UF -improved in selectivity, test scores and starting salaries, but it declined in the area of recruiter assessment. U.S.News & World Report recruiters review the business school's facilities and resources, which have been on the decline in recent years, he said. Kraft submitted plans for a graduate studies building in order to climb the business school rankings in the coming years. "Improving is always important," he said. Noah, Horford, Brewer face April 29 deadline for official decisions RALLY, from page 1 roommate and asked the standing-roomonly crowd what they thought the sophomores should do. The response was a deafening cheer. "So you want us to play here next year?" Noah asked, inciting a chant of "two more years" from the crowd. And then came the clincher, the words that every Gators fan wanted to hear: ."We back baby," Noah said. All key cogs in the Gators' championship run, and all potential first-round NBA Draft picks, Noah, Horford and Brewer are planning on returning UF to defend their championship next season. "I had the chance to talk to those guys, and that's what they want to do," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I think they're having a lot of fun here. I think they're a different type of kids." In a press conference prior to the pep rally, Donovan said he hadn't had time during the past few days to discuss his players' plans, playing it coyly so that they could make the announcement on their own terms Friday. While Donovan said he knew of his players' intentions after the sophomore trio "We back baby." Joakim Noah UF center dropped by his office earlier in the afternoon, the manner of their announcement came as a surprise even to him. "The whole thing, they did, I had nothing to do with; I didn't know," Donovan said. "I just told them what I was going to do, kind of paint a picture and just say I didn't know what those guys were going to do." Donovan really wanted to quash any speculation and rumors that were likely to mount during the next several weeks leading up to the NBA's early-entry deadline on April 29. North Carolina's Sean May made a similar statement last year at a school pep rally after the Tar Heels won the national championship, but he declared for the Draft a few weeks later. Donovan, however, is confident that his players' very public pledge will stick. "I thought it would be great if that's what they wanted to do, to come out publicly with it so everybody knows," Donovan said. "There's no more questions about it or talk about it. "It's over and done with, and this is where they're at."

12, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 Queer Ball held for missed proms By SASHA TALENFELD Alligator Contributing Writer After being kicked out of-multiple universities in the '90s and deemed a "disruption to campus" for dressing as a woman, Ivana Black finally found a home at U. Black, a senior at UF, knew she was transgender in high school. As a dancer, she performed the boy parts but hated it. Finally, Black found drag, which combined dancing and dressing as a woman. "It was my ticket in," said Black, who performs at University Club. For 15 years, Black performed in drag shows everywhere from London to Bermuda, and she performed at the Reitz Union while helping host Pride Student Union's Queer Ball on Friday night. The Queer Ball, which attracted about 200 students, was part of Pride Awareness Month and was held to raise awareness and serve as the gay prom people never had in high school, said Ricardo Cortez, the coordinator of the event. "This event gets rid of gender boundaries. If a boy wants to wear a tuxedo, he can, or if he chooses to wear a dress, he also can," said Cortez, who wore a dress to the event. Adelle Fontanet, president of Pride Student Union, said this was important for people who did not feel comfortable bringing their partners to their own prom. As part of the professional drag show, Dee Ranged dressed in a Colonial-style, white-powdered wig and full-skirted dress made completely out of colorful neckties. For the amateur portion of the show, three drag queens and two drag kings competed to be crowned queen and king of Queer Ball. Piramno Rosetta, an anthropology senior who went by the name Chastity, danced, lip-synced and even kissed two members of the audience who came to the stage to give dollar bills. Rosetta, who hopes to be a professional gothic model and top drag queen, was crowned queen of the Queer Ball. Sara Rubin / Alligator Dee Ranged, a professional drag queen, performs at the Pride Student Union Queer Ball in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom on Friday evening. "This is by far the happiest moment of my life so far," Rosetta said. Justin King, an 18-year-old SFCC student, enjoyed how he did not have to worry about people looking at him in a "weird" way. "It's great to come out to party, be crazy, be gay and just be you," King said. ALTERNATOR & STARTERS O BATTERIES U~ FREEA SYSTM58dt YST. 378-"40 2,.

ALLIGATOR MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 www.alligatorSports.org Tebow makes transition, runs little in first scrimmage By IAN FISHER Alligator Staff writer ifisher@alligator.org If only he didn't have to wear the noncontact jersey, Tim Tebow might have been a little less frustrated in his first spring scrimmage at UF-. The red jersey, which the freshman Tebow and senior Chris Leak both wear, prohibits defenders from hitting either of the two quarterbacks in order to guard against potential injury. -Consequently, offensive coordinator Dan Mullen said Tebow couldn't do what he does best. "We don't let him run around, the thing that he does best right now," Mullen said. "If he's struggling, [he's like], 'Let's go run someone over.' We don't let him do that. "It gets a little more frustrating for him, but in the long run, it's going to be for the best." Tebow wouldn't mind being free to run but certainly understands the restriction. "It'd be fun, but it's not something they really want me to do right now," Tebow said Saturday after his first scrimmage at UF "You'll get those opportunities. You just have to be patient and wait for them." H e's a try-hard guy. He sat for four hours with us yesterday. He's either in the weight room, in class, or he's in the office. He's kind of. neat to coach." Urban Meyer UF football coach Tebow said he's having fun in college and that the transition from home school hasn't been too bad. Only occasionally does someone ask him for an autograph or a photograph in class, he said. Although Tebow has a lot to learn in Coach Urban Meyer's offense, his work ethic has impressed his coach. "He's a try-hard guy," Meyer said. "He sat for four hours with us yesterday. He's either in the weight room, in class, or he's in the office. He's kind of neat to coach." Tebow couldn't gauge how comfortable he is after just a handful of spring practices with UF's mostly backup offense. "It's hard to say," he said. "I'm just trying to get in there and run a lot with the SEE TEBOW, PAGE 22 Lochte sets three world records By RACHEL ROBINS Alligator writer One wasn't enough for former UF swimmer Ryan Lochte. After setting a world record in the. 200-meter individual medley on Friday, Lochte set world-record marks in the 100and 200meter backstrokes on Sunday at the FINA Short Course World Championships in Shanghai, China. As a member of the U.S. 400 medley relay team, Lochte became the first swimmer ever to finish the 100 backstroke in less than 50 seconds. "It was my last race, and I just wanted to give everything I had because there wasn't another race left," Lochte said. He broke the world record in the 200 IM with a time of 1:53.31, .15 seconds faster than the previous time set by Hungary's Laszlo Cseh in 2005. In the 200 backstroke, Lochte finished in 1:49.05 to break Austria's Markus Rogan's record of 1:50.43. "I've thought about breaking world records before, but [Sunday night] I was just going out there, racing tough and having fun." Ryan Lochte Former UF swimmer In all, Lochte earned six medals, three of which were gold -for the 200 backstroke, the 200 IM and Thursday's 400 IM. Lochte was named the Best Male Athlete at the Short Course World Championships and was given the FINA Trophy for his efforts. "With the first world record, I was so shocked that I didn't think it had really happened," Lochte said.

Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer and Al Horford are coming back, assuming they told the truth and nothing but the truth Friday night. Last off-season, North Carolina's Sean May went against his public word after promising fans he would return as a senior.

After all that, it just got plain silly. Annihilating teams left and right, Noah became a demigod with a supporting cast that would make the "Ocean's Eleven" crew blush. Of course, their nightcap was a championship game that wasn't even close. But no. Friday, they did it again.

MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 21 h d s n %4 A Itll r% "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" UF to play inaugural event By JENNA MARINA Alligator Writer The UF men's golf team returns to action today after a three-week break to compete in the inaugural United States Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, Ga. "It's always fun to go to a first-year event and see how it is and get to see a new, different golf course," UF coach Buddy Alexander said. "[It's] another opportunity to play against the best, so it should be a good week." The No. 3 Gators face a familiar opponent, No. 1 Georgia, in the 13-team tournament. This season, Georgia has a 2-1 record against UP. During UF's last outing in the Chris Schenkel Invitational on March 19, the team placed second, falling two strokes behind No. 19 North Carolina. Seniors Brett Stegmaier, James Vargas and Matt Every will compete in their last regular season event before the Southeastern Conference Championships. Every was recently named one of 10 semifinalists for the 2006 Ben Hogan Award, which is presented to the nation's top men's golfer based on his results in collegiate or amateur competitions. Freshmen Toby Ragland and Billy Horschel accompany the trio of seniors to The Golf Club of Georgia. The duo has combined for five top-10 finishes and one top-five finish since the beginning ofihe Men's spring season. Redshirt sophomore GoAf Manuel Villegas rounds out the roster as an individual competitor for the first time since the Gator Invitational on Feb. 19 when he finished tied for 29th. Since the Gators have not competed in a sanctioned event in several weeks, Alexander said he is interested to see how the team will fare in the tournament. "You see some uninspired play during those times, so it's hard for me to really tell how they'll play [today]," Alexander said. "These are kind of the dog days before the pnstseason."

LOUIS, from page 20 ers. hTo tipsy entourage. Just a following of regular Florida folks who, in the heart of Alachua County, have discovered a group of diamonds no longer hidden in the rough. This just doesn't happen -championship teams returning all five starters. Not in 2005, when North Carolina's title team lost juniors Rashad McCants, Sean May and Raymond Felton to the NBA. Not in 2004, when Connecticut (Classic Carwash I ''F.41 F.11 Dmiling W-WidwTh,6ng 0 3010 SW Archer d. 374-9227 BUY a combo meal, get a 2nd FREE Tel YOU friend its on You. 1515 sw 13th St. -On t, 19 City, lditor, 19 sacrificed junior Ben Gordon to the pros for a championship team. Not in 2003, when freshman phenom Carmelo Anthony took his ring and left Syracuse for the Denver Nuggets. Forget 2002; sophomore Chris Wilcox bolted from Maryland. Duke's 2001 and Michigan State's 2000 squads didn't lose any early entrees, but both graduated starters from their title teams. Then the same pattern reemerges. Junior Rip Hamilton left UConn's 1999 team while junior Nazr Mohammed exited Kentucky's 1998 team and on and on and on. Cherish this team; you may never see a group so eccentric again. With the NBA's 19-year-old age minimum, most future title contenders will have their stud freshmen on board for a one-anddone type season. So while Noah, Brewer and Horford could have banked as lottery draft picks with a college championship to boot, they seem to have declined. Noah, for one, ignored a longtime mentor. "If he's slated to be picked that high, I hope Coach [Billy] Donovan says, 'I think you should go,"' said Soft pack? ..e Bill McNally, Noah's high school coach at Poly Prep in New York City, before the Final Four. Said one of Noah's teammates in UF's hotel lobby after the UCLA game: "If I was him, I would go for sure. There's no reason why he should stay" And yes, Noah ignored my 'advice. Last Thursday I wrote he would be foolish not to bite on NBA bait. So Friday night when I entered the O'Connell Center, I was greeted with a heckling of:."That was the worst crappy article I have ever read." And later a chant of: "Louis sucks." Yup, I deserve it. Unless the '04s lied to more than 10,000 fans, they have proven us all wrong. They have forced us to look into the mirror and reshuffle our priorities. In a world of billionaires, they have told us it's OK to say, "No thank you." In a time of egotism, they have let us know it's alright to think "team first." You can bet that this will hardly be their last shocker. Really, is there anything this bunch can't accomplish? Or box?

MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 23 UF headed to NCAAs with win By CHRIS WHTIE Alligator Writer The UF gymnastics team captured a first-place win at Saturday's NCAA South Central Region Championships, which came as no surprise to the Gators. But which team was nipping at their heels did. Last week, UF coach Rhonda Faehn said she expected a close competition between the Gators and No. 9 UCLA, but after the Bruins were forced to count a fall on the uneven bars and the balance beam, No. 18 Arkansas took advantage, closed in on the Gators and eventually finished second. Even with the elimination of her alma mater, UCLA, Faehn said she was happy to see anUF's Corey Hartung took second in the all-around at regionals. other Southeastern Conference team advance to the NCAA Championships. "It's bittersweet for me," Faehn said of her alma mater UCLA's defeat. "I'm glad to see UCLA not advance. I'm proud of Arkansas and what they did tonight. They hit the meet; they were consistent." The Gators and the Razorbacks are two of five SEC teams advancing to national championships in Corvallis, Ore., on April 20 to 22. The 12-team national pool will feature Alabama, Louisiana State and defending ,national champion Georgia from the SEC. The group also includes Arizona State, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa State and Utah. Faehn said her team's performance at the regional championship proved UF is ready for SEC rivals and competition from other'teams at nationals. "It's a very similar situation [as it is] at regionals," Faehn said of the national meet. "They've shown me that they can stay very calm and steady through it, so we're ready." The Gators placed first on the uneven bars, the balance beam and the floor routine, but took second to UCLA on the vault. The Gators counted 'penalties on the vault -typically the team's strongest event -for taking steps on landings, but Savannah Evans and Tiffany Murry, who both scored a 9.85, anchored a second-place finish in the event. With a score of 39.325, freshman Corey Hartung placed second in the all-around to UCLA's Kate Richardson, who earned a 39.475. Hartung said she was excited to place in another all-around an.d that she was just happy the team made it to nationals. "It didn't matter what the other scores were," Hartung said. "We were just about being consistent and going to nationals." The Gators will now use the two-week break to rest and rebuild their strength, Faehn said. "We'll take a few days off and then it's back to the gym," she said. "We still have one more meet to prepare for." Women clinch share of SECtitle By ANTONIO GONZALEZ Alligator Writer The No. 3 UF women's tennis team clinched at least a share of the Southeastern Conference regular season championship with a 6-1 win against No. 22 Kentucky on Sunday. Z But there was no excess celebration. Winning the SEC has become a formality for the Gators (171, 10-0 SEC), who have now won 21 of the past 27 SEC titles. "I get excited over it," said senior Alexis Gordon about winning the SEC. "But I just expect it." With the Gators hosting the SEC Tournament, it could surprise few if UF's 131-1 all-time home record versus the SEC receives another blemish. The Wildcats (15-7, 8-2 SEC) gave the Gators a scare when they became only the second team this season to sweep UF in doubles. Miami was the only other team to do so this season. UF came out firing in singles, something that quickly sent a message to the Wildcats. The Gators won their first sets on all six courts in less than 30 minutes. "I was real happy with the way we. responded in singles," UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. "That's how you respond to adversity. "We played like we wanted to win an SEC title. All six played hard and set the Thornqvist tone early. When you want to win the title, that's how you play, and that's how you compete." Sixty minutes into singles play, sophomore Diana Srebrovic clinched the win for the Gators with a 6-1, 6-1 victory against Kentucky's Lara Maurer. Gordon played in her last regular season home match on Sunday and was honored beforehand, with her mother and 16month-old daughter, Imani, at her side. "I was just thinking back over the years and when Ifirst came here," Gordon said. "My first match as a freshman, all the people who have played here before -it was hard to deal with." Gordon won her No. 1 singles match (6-4, 6-2) with an ace to cap a special day for her. Coupled with the win against No. 7t Vanderbilt on Friday, the match also secured the Gators a No. 1 seed and a first-round bye in the SEC Tournament. Thonqvist said this year's team has a chance to be just as good as the 2003 UF championship team. The talent is as good as in 2003, but this year's team is still maturing, which also means the upside is bigger, he said. The Gators will travel to South Carolina on Saturday for a chance to win the SEC title outright. "If they really want to win [the SEC] outright, we'll see a magnificent performance on Saturday," Thornqvist said. "There's no telling how good we can be in May." Gat rs rise to take road series fro N. Tennessee N STEVENS PICKED UP BOTH WINS FOR UF; ROUSSELL HIT TWO HOME RUNS IN THE SERIES. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Writer After a humbling sweep by unranked Florida State last week, UF softball coach Tim Walton said his team wasn't "feeling very good." It seems, that the Gators just needed some higher-ranked competition. After defeating No. 5 Tennessee 6-4 on Friday, the Gators split a Sunday doubleheader, winning 2-0 and losing 8-0, to take the series from the Volunteers in Knoxville. can't sa enoug Nelson earned the save in game Coming into the weekend, it two. seemed like No. 24 UF (33-15,12-6 things about Stacey NelWhile Tennessee reliever' Southeastern Conference) would struggle against Tennessee, a team that boasts three of the 25 finalists for National Player of the Year. While junior Stacey Stevens has led the UF pitching staff this season, her accolades fall short of Monica Abbott's, Tennessee's two-time All-America pitcher. But those awards meant nothing this weekend, as the Gators won their fifth consecutive SEC series, taking two of three games from the Volunteers. "We're feeling great, facing a pitcher like Abbott," Stevens said. "Having as many big hits son. Over and over again, she cleans up my messes. I come out with so many more wins because of her saves." Stacey Stevens UF pitcher as we did is great. To have five home runs off a player who plays for the. national team, there's no reason why we can't compete with any other pitcher for the rest of the season." Stevens picked up both wins for UF, and freshman Stacey -Megan Rhodes gave up three hits and one run after replacing Abbot in game two, Nelson came in and threw 1.2 scoreless innings. "I can't say enough good things about Stacey Nelson," Stevens said. "Over and over again, she cleans up my messes. I come out with so many more wins because of her saves. "Abbott was struggling. They put in Rhodes, and she didn't do well. Nelson came in and kept our lead and had extra momentum in the [pitcher's] circle. Her style is unlike any other, and we all love having her as a teammate." But the UF pitchers can also thank shortstop Lauren Roussell, who had two home runs and three RBI in the series. "Lauren Roussell had a phenomenal weekend. She played well both offensively and defensively," Walton said. "We pitched phenomenally, played great defense and hit the heck out of the ball." After defeating such a h ghly ranked rival, Walton feels ai dent in his team. "Tennessee's. a really, really good ball team," he said. "That's one thing we're not going to fail to notice, how good they are. We haven't done anything different this series than any other series. "They came out and *hey wanted it. They wanted it bad."

24,ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, APRIL 10, 2006 UF continues slump, drops two of three to Kentucky By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS Alligator Staff Writer sdvanness@aligator.org UF closer Darren O'Day entered the game in the second inning, and it was still five outs too late. The UF baseball team (20-16, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) asked the senior for his longest outing of the season andell to No. 23 Kentucky 8-6 after freshman starter Chas Spottswood allowed six runs in less than two innings. "It's another disappointing loss for us in every way," UF coach Pat McMahon said. "I'm not used to this and don't accept it at all." It was the third consecutive Sunday that the Gators fell behind quickly, and BaseOaII apparently McMahon had little interest in seeing the match turn into another blowout loss. O'Day's appearance on the mound did calm the Wildcats' bats, but ultimately the deficit was too much for UF to overcome. O'Day pitched four innings, allowing five hits and one run, and the Gators, staged a three-run rally in the sixth. In the eighth, UF put together another strong offensive effort and brought the game back to within two runs on four hits. A Matt LaPorta solo home run with wo outs in the top of the ninth gave UF a glimmer of hope, but Brian LeClerc grounded out to end the game. LaPorta is tied for the team lead in home runs with seven, and he has homered in three straight games. McMahon said the Gators failed to fully capitalize on opportunities during the eighth, noting David Cash's pop-up to left field to end the inning.

F Kristin Nichols / Alligator Staff UF first baseman Matt LaPorta sets up for a tag on a pickoff attempt during the Gators' 7-6 loss against Stetson on March 21. LaPorta homered in all three games of UF's series against Kentucky during the weekend. squad's effort. "Our guys hurt, and that in essence is good," McMahon said. "The fact is that they understand and care." Kentucky (25-8, 7-5 SEC) was all over Spottswood in the first, rocking the freshman with a single, double and home run, while UF shortstop Adam Davis picked up an error. In the second, Spottswood picked up two quick outs only to have Antone Dejesus reach on a fielding error. Then Kentucky's Collin Cowgill stepped up to the plate and slammed the ball over the left field wall.

Coming into the series, UF held a 9-1 advantage in the schools' last 10 meetings. By losing Sunday, UF dropped its third SEC series in four attempts. The Gators did, however, avoid a sweep. UF fell to Kentucky on Saturday -in the final 2.1 innings of a rain-delayed Friday game. But later in the day, sophomore starter Bryan Augenstein picked up his third complete game of the season, as UF squeezed out a much-needed 6-4 victory. But the Gators have dropped seven of ten, are unranked and'are now just four games above .500 -a far cry from the team's preseason No. 2 ranking. A silver lining from the weekend for the Gators could be that UF lost by a combined score of 20-19 in three games. During the previous two weekends, that Gators were hammered by a combined 57-18. "The differences between success and failure are minuscule," McMahon said. "It's so frustrating, and it gets to the point where in the second inning, we don't complete a play. Then you look to the end of the game, and it made all the difference." Noon to 5pm Every Day.
