Masked by an enormous black
tarp, the court on which UF won
its national championship in
Indianapolis was supposed to pro-

it was unveiled Friday night at the
But as a crowd of 10,406 cel-

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

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
"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
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-

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.

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
"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
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
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,
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,
"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
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.

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
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
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
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
Hopefully they will before busybody officials and indig-
nant residents ruin the college experience for good.

TAEAM A'1AR TO0,
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 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-

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.
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
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.
SFCC student, former U.S. Marine
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.

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
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
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
Most runners wore whatever
they felt most comfortable in
- boxers, bras or pajamas.
Some people ran barefoot,
and others sported thongs or
Chris Thompson, a chemical
engineering freshman, wore a
"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
"It's kind of our own sport for
people that can't participate in
university athletics," McCaddin
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-
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.

50 participants, and about 500

GRU offers rebates for energy-efficient appliances
* THE REBATES RANGE FROM $55
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-
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
"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?"
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
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

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
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-
"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'

outreach director for the Center for
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.

The response was a deafening cheer.

Donovan, however, is confident that his

Donovan said. "There's no more questions

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
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.

Tebow makes transition, runs little in first scrimmage
By IAN FISHER
S Alligator Staff Writer
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
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."
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
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,

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
"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
"I've thought about break-
ing world records before,
but [Sunday night] I was
just going out there, racing
tough and having fun."
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-

UF headed to NCAAs with win
By CHRIS WHTIE
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-

"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

With a score of 39.325, fresh-
man Corey Hartung placed second
in the all-around to UCLA's Kate

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.

share of SEC title
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
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

~ 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
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."

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.

finalists for National Player of
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-

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

While Tennessee reliever'

threw 1.2 scoreless innings.
"I can't say enough good

Stevens said. "Over and over

wins because of her saves.
"Abbott was struggling. They
put in Rhodes, and she didn't do
well. Nelson came in and kept our

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-

well both offensively and defen-
sively," Walton said. "We pitched

After defeating such a highly

UF continues slump, drops two of three to Kentucky
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
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
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
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.
"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
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-
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-
"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."
