UF in Top 10
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writer
UF patented 64 inventions last year, making it the uni-
versity with the seventh highest number of patents issued
Among those inventions are a better refrigerator, a
germ-proof grapevine and a road signal that warns driv-
ers of upcoming traffic.
Patents earn UF millions of dollars in royalties, which
range from 5 percent to 20 percent of the revenue an in-
UF Last year, licensed products brought
Academics in $40 million. That number grows each
year as UF accumulates more patented
Patents also advertise the university to corporations
that buy UF's products corporate partnerships are im-
portant to UF research.
Most UF inventions are medical devices and treat-
ments devised by the College of Medicine, but other col-
leges contribute as well, said Jane Muir, associate director
of the UF Office of Technology Licensing.
One invention patented in 2005 is a system that makes
refrigerators and freezers more efficient by minimizing
frost buildup on their coils.
To do so, it absorbs and traps airborne water molecules
before they become frost.
Another innovation employs a series of sensors, mea-
suring position and velocity, to be placed at intervals on

The decade of decadence wasn't so glorious at
times for UF.
A series of stories that ran in the Independent
Florida Alligator exposing sex in campus bathrooms
created a concern for university administrators.
In 1989, the university did what it could to plug
"glory holes" in campus bathrooms.
The holes, which were drilled into stall walls,
were reportedly used by gay men for anonymous anal

UF opens the doors of Disability Resource Center
Students' vision now a reality
By JESSICA DUCHENE

The determination of four UF
students turned a dream into reality
Tuesday as UF celebrated the grand
opening of its Disability Resource
Center, which provides learning
accommodations to students with
The center held a ribbon-cutting
ceremony'before opening its doors

Gene Zdziarski, dean of stu-
dents, attended the ceremony and
said it was great to see a campus
community coming together to
make something happen.
"The Disability Resource Center
marks a major step forward in being
able to provide accommodated ser-
vices for any UF student with dis-
abilities," Zdziarski said. "UF now
has one of the true state-of-the-art
facilities in the country for students
Bethany Stevens was one of the
four students that originally began
working toward the development of
an accommodated testing center for
students with disabilities. Stevens
started a campaign in Fall 2003 and
collected approximately 2,000 signa-
tures in support of the building. She
said it was rewarding to see the cen-
ter after all of her hard work.
"It's beautiful, I mean, I feel
alive," Stevens said. "We've made a
hell of a center."
The center provides services
such as one-on-one counseling,
technology training, testing accom-
modations, sign language interpret-
ers, time management skills, course
substitutions and note-taking ser-
vices, said James R. Faubel, learning
specialist at the Disability Resource
Stevens said students will ben-
efit from a resource center that is
centralized and provides quiet and
separate testing spaces. Students
used to shuffle around campus
and ended up testing in dorm base-
ments, but the Disability Resource
Center prevents testing environ-
ments like that, she said.
"We dared to dream and look
outside the box," Stevens said.
The center helps students under-
stand available services and gives
them the opportunity to receive
classroom accommodations that
they need, said Valerie Pfister, learn-
ing specialist at the center.
"Our job is to let them know that
registering at the center will help
them," she said.

cialist at the center,

Problems cloud first day of football ticket registration
By ALl SOULE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Ben Porras picked up the phone and dialed
again. He' knew the number by heart now
- he had dialed it 15 times before he finally
He entered his information. The automated
system accepted it, and he was registered for
the lottery. He was one of the lucky ones.
-About 1,300 students registered for the
Gators football lottery and paid for their
tickets Monday evening, but there were some
students who weren't able to register.
High call volume, student ID numbers not
working and busy signals prohibited some
students from being able to register, swamped
the ticket office with calls and sent employees
scrambling to fix problems.
Eric Reinke, a ticket office intern, said the
system rejected some students' ID numbers
because students entered their ID num-
bers incorrectly or the University Athletic
Association didn't have accurate account in-
formation on file.
"We've had people holding for us since
8:30 a.m.," Reinke said Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
"We're trying to solve everyone's problems
Porras, 22, said this was the first year he
didn't have to wait on the phone for hours, but
he's upset about the increase of ticket prices.
"It's ridiculously horrible," he said. "They
hit us with this double whammy. They've hit
us with time-consuming ticket ordering and
then raised prices."
Students at Florida State University get
their tickets for free, he said. He thought the
$42 price tag for tickets last year was accept-
able, but he thinks $70 is too much.
"I'd just like to know where the extra
money is going," Porras said. "How is it going
to benefit the school?"
Reinke said several factors caused the price
"Prices were raised across the board," he
said. "Every couple of years, prices raise due
to inflation and increased costs to the athletic
Students have enjoyed $7 tickets per game
for more than six years, Reinke said. The price
increased because the Gators have seven home
games this season, one more than last.
"Every couple of years, prices raise
due to inflation and increased
costs to the athletic association."
ticket office intern
Despite an e-mail sent to students inform-
ing them of the price increase, Reinke said
some students were caught off guard.
If students' ID numbers are rejected mul-
tiple times, they should call the ticket office.
The phone lines will be open from 8 a.m. to
midnight every day until April 19, which will
be another busy day, he said.
Reinke emphasized that students do not
need to rush to register.
"You have the same chance if you order
tickets today than if you order them next
Wednesday at midnight," he said.
The athletic association will hold the
lottery the -week of April 24. Students who
have more than 90 hours of UF credit have
the best chance of winning, according to
Gatorzone.com. The same system was used
last year, and 1,500 tickets were not sold.
"We didn't even need the lottery," he said.
He said he expects the same to happen this
Lottery winners will be notified by e-mail
by April 28. Students who do not win the lot-
tery will have the money refunded to their
credit cards the week of May 8.

Passover meals abundant
* HILLEL IS HELPING STUDENTS HOST
THEIR OWN PASSOVER SEDERS.
By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Jewish students will adhere to a low-carb diet
the next eight days as they celebrate Passover.
Passover is a Jewish holiday that represents
the start of the harvest season in Israel and com-
memorates the Jews' liberation from Egypt. During
Passover, Jews are not allowed to eat any form of
Three seders, or Passover feasts, willbe offered at
Hillel on Wednesday for the first night of Passover.
The Gator Seder and Seder For Dummies will begin
at 7:30 p.m., and an Israeli seder will begin at 8:30
p.m. Two seders will take place Thursday at 7:30
p.m. for the second night.
Rabbi Jonathan Siger, who will conduct The
Gator Seder, expects 200 to 300 people to attend.
Jews in Greek Letter Organizations, a UF group,
will hold another seder at Alpha Epsilon Pi on
Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m.
Organization President Emily Panzer said the
event is open to everyone but will probably be
composed of mostly Greeks. She expects about 150
people to attend.
"It's going to be a fun seder with mostly students,
and it's going to be on campus," Panzer said.
Stacy Levitt will host another seder by the pool
at Campus Lodge. She said the event will be open
to everyone regardless of whether they are residents
of the apartment complex or not, and she expects
about 30 to 60 people to attend. Levitt will use the
seder grants she received from Hillel to conduct it.
"I'm excited about it," Levitt said. "I thought it
would be fun to host a seder where a lot of people
I know live."
Hillel offered seder grants to students who
wanted to host their own seders. The idea was cre-
ated by Hillel Executive Director Keith Dvorchik
and the grant contains all the items needed for a
"The response has been overwhelming," Siger
said. "We always have more requests than we can
Siger and the rest of the Hillel staff began to pre-
pare the sedar grants Monday. They expect to feed
abuut 800 people with the grants.
Students had to sign a contract and

Siger said. "The chance to host a free seder is an ir-
With this year's Passover seders occurring on
weekdays, Siger said students should be allowed to
get out of their academic responsibilities to celebrate
the holiday. UF has a policy that allows students to
be absent from a class because of a religious holiday.
Siger said he has run into some problems with pro-
fessors concerning the Jewish event.
For example, one professor wanted his student
to take an exam on Passover morning, which would
have prevented the student from flying to New
York to be with his family.
"It's like someone taking an exam on Christmas
Eve," Siger said.
He has been writing letters to help students get
out of academic obligations that may interfere with
their observance of Passover.

Sometimes, you just have to have faith in President
Amid news that Iran has successfully enriched ura-
nium for the first time, Bush administration officials are reit-
erating that they remain committed to a diplomatic solution
to the crisis of a nuclear Iran.
We hope they can do it.
Because with all the rhetoric coming out of Iran these
days, we're starting to wonder whether a backyard bomb
shelter is such a bad idea after all.
Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, no
stranger to controversy, has frequently and vocally chal-
lenged both the Western world and our allies -in Israel, go-
ing so far as to call for the Jewish state to be "wiped off the

Iran's enrichment comes over the stem objections of the
U.N. Security Council, which, on March 29, demanded that
Iran suspend its uranium program. Ahmadinejad blew it off,
saying, "The enemies must know that they cannot hinder the
Of course, it's entirely possible that Iran just wants nucle-
ar energy like the rest of the developed world, which they
should be able to get. But therein lies the rub. The same ura-
nium enrichment techniques used to make fuel for nuclear
reactors can also be used to make material for nuclear weap-
ons. It's a dangerous game.
And given Iran's recent actions, we're not exactly optimis-
tic at the prospects that diplomacy will win the day.
Yet the Bush administration remains upbeat, saying that
diplomatic solutions are still available and that alleged plans
of an imminent attack against Iran are "just wild specula-

And maybe that counts for something. But with the stakes
so high, it's difficult to know just how many concessions the
U.S. is willing to make to diplomatically prevent Iran from
getting the bomb. How far can we reasonably expect to go
before a military attack is the only option left on the table?
News of Iran's enrichment success couldn't come at a
worse time for Bush, whose approval ratings recently hit a

But the same could also be said of the U.S. mili-
tary. Following the costly, dismal invasions of Iraq and
Afghanistan, it's easy to wonder how much juice our military
has left to prevent nuclear proliferation in Iran.
It's the military scenario that everyone feared. Iraq, a
relatively small potato once ruled by a tyrannical yet stable
dictator, has sapped both the resources and the morale of the
most powerful military in the world. We now find ourselves
bogged down in a conflict without clear goals or exit strate-
But who knows? Mohamed ElBaradei, the head of the
U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy
Agency, heads to Iran later this week. Maybe we'll get lucky.
Maybe E1Baradei will find that we have nothing to worry
about. Or maybe Iran's leaders will spontaneously decide
that uranium enrichment just isn't for them.
But we're not holding our breath.

Congressman secures $250K for SFCC fine arts
* THE MONEY WILL HELP
BUILD A FINE ARTS FACILITY.
By LINDSEY FRANCO
SFCC received a hefty $250,000
endowment Tuesday, which it will
use to plant the seed for a high-
tech fine arts facility.
U.S. Congressman Cliff Steams,
the Gainesville Republican whose
district encompasses SFCC and
UF, secured the funding, adding
to the $115,000 he donated for the
building last year.
SFCC President Jackson Sasser
said the college will combine

"All these people need a

them justice for all the work that
they do," Kendall said.

the SFCC campus after a stop
at Gainesville Regional Airport,
where he presented airport offi-

Eviction of fire rescue team may slow response times

unit could be evicted from Northwest

In 2005, Rescue One responded to more

The chairs are just one of the many
commemorate items Gators fans can
purchase and Gainesville's bookstores
can't keep on the shelves.
So far the top seller at the bookstore
has been a khaki baseball cap with the
design of the locker room shirt the
same shirt players wore after winning
the championship. People constantly
ask for the caps that sell out as soon
as they arrive, said Lynne Vaughan,
director of UF Bookstores. *
SSeveral thousand locker room
shirts, which cost $20, have been sold
since the Gators won the champion-
ship. There is also a women's version
of the shirt that has sold out more
quickly than anticipated, Vaughan
said. Other women's styles, including
a pink national championship shirt,
are currently available only online. But
those shirts were expected to arrive in
the next shipment, Vaughan said.
"We are having strong traffic in the
stores, and they are all running right
to the championship tees," Vaughan
Off-campus stores are also rap-
idly selling the popular shirts, said
Michelle Cross, a manager at the
Florida Book Store.
"We cannot keep them in stock,"
Cross said. "We will get a shipment in,
and by the end of the day it is gone."
Cross said that being off campus
has not really affected sales. She said
many of their orders have been placed
online by faithful customers and
alumni of the university from all over
the country. So far, Cross said they
have sold more than 2,500 shirts.
"I think people want everything
they can get their hands on, which is
great," she said.
The Florida Book Store is expecting
another huge hike in sales the day of
the Orange and Blue Debut on April
22, which is the spring practice game
for the football team. They have many
styles of polo and children's shirts that
they expect visiting fans to buy up
quickly, Cross said.
Hollywood hits UF class
By DONNA MITRANI
Alligator Contributing Writer
Since the beginning of the semester, stu-
dents in the English course Modem Drama
have known that come April the playwright
W.T. Underwood would be sitting in on
What these students didn't realize is
that Underwood is none other than the
Hollywood actor Thomas Jane.
Jane, 37, spent Tuesday morning critiqu-
ing scenes and providing tips to a class of 30
UF students who were performing scenes
from his play "Suckerfish."
The actor, who has appeared in films
such as 'The Punisher," "The Sweetest
Thing" and "Deep Blue Sea," arrived in
Gainesville on Thursday to watch perfor-
mances of "Suckerfish" at the Acrosstown
Repertory Theatre, 619 S. Main St. The local
theater was the first to perform the produc-
tion from start to finish since Jane wrote it.
"It was a great experience," Jane said. "It
helped me clarify a few things."
Sidney Homan, the UF English profes-
sor who teaches the class, called Modem
Drama: Learning by Doing, directed the
production of "Suckerfish" and invited Jane
to come to two of his English classes and
one of his honors classes.
The UF Honors Program paid for Jane's
airfare and accommodations, Homan said,
but he did not know how much.
Jane spent the morning in classes watch-
ing students perform scenes from his first
and only piece. It was exciting, he said.
"It allowed me to explore beats of the
play in an academic environment where
there is a lot of feedback," Jane said.
"It was a little intimidating, but it
ended up being a lot of fun be-
cause he had a lot to put into it."
The students had many good ideas from
different points of view, Jane said.
Molly Telfer, a UF art history junior, was
one of the students who performed in front
of Jane on Tuesday.
"It was a little intimidating, but it ended
up being a lot of fun because he had a lot to
put into it," Telfer said.
Vladimir Meyman, an English junior in
the class, said that Jane proved to be a good
teacher and was extremely knowledgeable
on running through scenes.
"I thought it was cool to have a seasoned
actor, director, playwright and producer
discuss with us his opinion on our work,"

New ISIS allows better searches, easier registration
By DENISE POJOMOVSKY
Alligator Contributing Writer
At first, students were hesitant about the
new ISIS. They felt the process of finding their
advance registration times was time consum-
ing. Even when registration time finally came
around last week, they were still not too con-
vinced or satisfied with the new ISIS format.
But after several days of registration, stu-
dents began to see the benefits.
The new and improved information sys-
tem has more features that specialize the pro-
,gram and make it easier to search for courses
that will fit students' schedules.
Pamela Morrow, an accounting sopho-
more, said she likes to have some days with-
out classes during the week.
"I try to plan my schedule so that I do not
have class every day and I can work during
my days off," she said. "The new ISIS makes it
so easy for me to only find those courses that
will allow me to do that."
When searching for a course, certain op-
tions allow students to include days of the
week and times such as morning, afternoon
or evening in order to narrow the search.
In addition, the new ISIS allows students to
log on just once, without having to enter their
usemames and passwords every time they
want to register for a different semester.
"Its so much easier to register for all se-
mesters at once because you just click on the
column located on the left side and change
from Summer to Fall semesters without
having to sign on and off," Morrow said. "It
makes the process much faster."
The old ISIS required students to log on
and off every step of the way. Even if students
just wanted to see their schedules or check
out textbook requirements, they had to click
on another link and once again enter their
"I try to plan my schedule so that
I do not have class every day and
I can work during my days off. The
new ISIS makes it so easy for me
to only find those courses that will
allow me to do that."
UF accounting sophomore
Elise Nelson, a political science sophomore,
likes another advantage of the new program.
She said that even though she was a little
confused about why she had to go through
her degree audit when she first checked her
registration time, she realized it was only a
helpful way to make sure she chose the right
classes and fulfilled all her requirements.
"While going through my degree audit, I
realized what classes I am still required to take
and how many credits I should be taking each
semester in order to graduate in time," Nelson
said. "I think it saves up a lot of time, and this
way people don't need to go see an academic
adviser just to see what courses they need."
Students were also satisfied with the new
appearance of the program.
Aubrey Parsley, a civil and coastal engi-
neering junior, said that ISIS looks much more
"The program looked outdated before,"
Parsley said. "It was time to revamp it and
make it look a little bit more modem, which is
exactly how it looks now."

ways," Danisovsky said.
By June, airport officials expect to
begin the second phase of its renova-
tions, which may take 18 months to
The new taxiway lights are part

Stearns, a Republican from
Florida's District 6, which includes
parts of Gainesville and Alachua,
also helped the airport gain a
$300,000 grant in 2005 for ground
Before handing over the check,
Stearns explained his role in bring-

"It's part of a big pie and your
congressman got it if I didn't get
it, someone else in Indiana would
have taken it," Steams said. "I had

this taking advantage of Congress
to get this money here? No. This is

12, ALLIGATOR n WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12,2006
By MARIA LAVERGHEITA
Imagine if you could change traffic lights at the snap of
a finger or, in this case, the push of a button.
Security devices, called traffic signal preemption trans-
mitters, owned by the Alachua County Fire and Rescue
Department, do just that legally.
Web sites across the nation, however, such as
www.themirt.com and www.i-hacked.com brag of creating
and using duplicate devices just as easily and effectively.
But people -buying and selling the devices hit a road-
block in August 2005 when President Bush passed the Safe,
Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act.
It established a minimum sentence of six months in
prison for anyone who uses the device illegally. The act also
said those selling the device illegally could serve a year in
prison, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation
The devices used in counties across the nation, includ-
ing Alachua for the past 3 to 4 years, are coded. When
either a legal or illegal device is used, the
Around control box of the intersection records
GaIMB SVle10 both the date and time used, said Megan
Crandall, public information officer for
Alachua County Fire and Rescue.
"When you turn it on, it will recognize that that vehicle
turned it on date, time, everything," Crandall said. "It
essentially provides accountability."
In the. U.S., two major companies, 3M and Tomar
Electronics Inc., competitively sell differently coded pre-
Like the "IBM-Microsoft, Pepsi-Coke" relationship, the
two companies will only go through specific distributors,
said Stuart Johnston, the Southeastern region sales repre-
sentative for Tomar Electronics Inc.
"Everybody has a heightened sense of security,"
Besides being very immoral, using a "rogue emitter," or
a generic version of the preemption transmitter, is not effec-
tive, Johnston said.
Even though he did not sell transmitters to Gainesville,
the city has nothing to worry about, he said.
"I can.tell you right now, the systems in place in most
cities are capable of knocking 95 percent of [generic trans-
mitters] out," Johnston said.
Blake Temple, president of Temple Inc. and distributor
the 3M versions of Gainesville's preemption devices, said
cost of the device $5,000 is an incentive for hackers to
illegally create a homemade alterative.
"Anything can be stolen or acquired illegally and be
utilized," Temple said.

Nobel winner tells UF about proteins
By DELIA M. RIVERA ZABALA
Alligator Contributing Writer
Nobel Prize laureate Dr. Peter Agre
knows how peeing in your bed and
Christian Dior makeup are related.
Aquaporins, naturally occurring pro-
teins he helped discover in 1992, are to
blame. The proteins are responsible for
many human processes including tears,
sweat and bladder problems. They also
moisturize skin an asset in beauty care.
"For anyone who had a Starbucks ven-
ti coffee before the lecture, by the end of
my lecture you'll have a full bladder and
know what I'm talking about," Agre said.
Agre spoke Tuesday to a crowd of
about 450 in UF's Health Professions,
Nursing and Pharmacy auditorium
for the College of Medicine's Faculty
Research Day's 50th Anniversary.
"Since we are dealing with our 50th an-
niversary, we were looking for a speaker
with a high profile and prominence," said
"I had a D in high school
Dr. Peter Agre
Nobel Prize laureate
Dr. C. Craig Tisher, dean of the College of
Agre's speech talked about how the
absence or mutation of genes that produce
the aquaporins can influence fluid reten-
tion, obesity and cataracts since the pro-
teins act as water channels in the body.
Christian Dior developed a cream
called HydrAction based on his discovery.
The cream contains aquaporins that aid in
moisturizing the skin.
Agre, now at Duke's medical school,
shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
with Roderick MacKinnon of Rockefeller
Agre, who worked at Johns Hopkins
University at the time of the discovery,
said he always had anxiety when it came
"There could not have been a less
prepared individual to do these stud-
ies," Agre said. "I had a D in high school

"If you're a researcher at an-
other institution, and you see
that we're doing the same quan-
tity of work and the same caliber
of work as researchers at these
other institutions, you're going to
think of the University of Florida
differently," Orlando said.
Cho recounts experiences
CHO, frorn page 1
Cho talked about her child-
hood, being overweight and hav-
ing to deal with racism. She spoke
about her experiences with fad
diets, anorexia and the desire to
be considered beautiful.
"I just wanted people to pay
attention to me," she said. "I used
to think I was bi. Now I just real-
ize I'm just L"
Melvin Thomas, a recreation,
parks and tourism junior, said he
went to see Cho to have a good
time, but left with much more.
"I'm Asian-American, and
she touched on a lot of issues I
felt strongly about," he said. "I
just feel that that was something
that needed to be said on this
Addressing gay issues, Cho
joked about people who are ho-
mophobic because they believe
hanging out with gay people will
make them gay as well.
"Being gay isn't contagious,"
she said. "Because if you are one
of the people who think that you
are, then by now you are prob-
She even addressed the issue
of gay marriage by challenging
those who op-
I marriage, but
laugh your ass
off to 'Will and
cho f*** you. You
are not allowed
to take what you want from our
culture," she said.
Josh Marx, a finance fresriman,
said Cho left a great impact on
"I watched her, growing up
with my parents, and seeing them
feel comfortable with her sexual-
ify made me feel OK to come out
to my parents," he said.

plenty of action on the base paths. But UF reliever
Steven Porter (1-0) earned the win in relief, shut-
ting down B-CC in three hitless innings.
Porter, a situational lefty, rarely pitches for
three straight batters, let alone three innings.
"I needed work," Porter said. "It's been hard
pitching recently because it just hasn't been the
right situations. I feel a lot better now."
B-CC senior Raphael Kyles was tagged with
the loss. He went three innings, surrendering
three earned runs on five hits.

him from making another plate

gressiveness on the base paths, tied a season high
with three stolen bases, two from Dickey and one
"I thought they did a wonderful job holding
runners, but I thought our guys did a little bet-
ter job picking pitches to run on," UF coach Pat
McMahon said. "That is a big part of our arsenal.
I would like to be much more aggressive on the
bases and run a lot more, but you don't want to
run yourself into outs."
In a sense, it was a breakout game for the
Gators, who put together strings of clutch hits and
whose bullpen hurled six scoreless innings.
"I thought we pitched extremely well,"
McMahon said. "That was as quality an outing as
Steven Porter has had this year."
But the Gators performance was far from flaw-
less, as UF committed five errors, tying a season
high. Surprisingly, two of the errors came from
catcher Brian Jeroloman, who had only commit-
ted three errors the entire season. UF's tough day
in the field further cements the Gators' last-place
fielding percentage in the SEC.
"I am always concerned about errors. I don't
sleep well anyway, and those can create more

The Gators have now finished

In UF's last two SEC se-

come in as a reliever, earning
a save each time.
Now, she leads the SEC
with four saves.
"If you've done your home-
work on me, I've always had a
closer," UF coach Tim Walton
said. "I had a kid who had 11
saves as a freshman at Wichita
State. To me, it's about other
teams getting comfortable in

said she knew she'd have to look
elsewhere for points.
"The question I get asked is,
'How do you graduate your start-
ing primary passer and where are
the points going to come from in
the absence of Jane Collymore?'"
Wise said. "I don't know, and I
don't know, but I've got a few
months to answer that."
Collymore, a two-time
Southeastern Conference player of
the year, accounted for more than
a quarter of the Gators' 1,979 kills
last year, and Engel led the team
with 599 digs on the season.
But the Gators' spring season
has shown that Wise may have

With injuries, lack of effort, lackluster perfor-

Meyer said. "All of the above."

Sophomore Kestahn Moore, the starter heading

"A person like Kestahn is the drum major of

UF blazes past Bethune-Cookman
By BRYAN JONES
It was probably just coincidence when
two Gainesville Fire Department trucks
roared up to McKethan Stadium, but the
vehicles seemed to arrive right on time
As the sirens blared from behind the
right field fence, the Gators' bats caught
fire for a four-run sixth inning that broke
the game open for an 8-2 UF victory against
Bethune-Cookman on Tuesday night.
UF left fielder Chris Petrie went 3 for 4
with two RBI and two runs scored.
"It was awesome," Petrie said. "I was
just trying to stay back and hit everything
the other way, and I was fortunate enough
to get some good pitches to hit."
It was unranked UF's 19th all-time win
against the Wildcats, who have never de-
feated the Gators.
The Wildcats (18-21, 6-0 Mid-Eastern
Athletic Conference) are having one of their
better seasons in recent history and are cur-
rently ranked No. 1 in the Black College
Baseball Poll. With the win, UF (21-16, 4-8
Southeastern Conference) improved its
record to 6-4 in midweek games.

Familiar underdog role may propel Gators to much-needed wins

team defeated Bethune-

players were smiling and relaxed,
seemingly for the first time since
being swept at South Carolina in the
last weekend of March.
And why shouldn't they be en-
Plenty of detractors on the
Internet message boards are calling
for the heads of hitting coach Tim
Parenton and pitching coach Ross
Jones. The team is unranked in three
of the four college baseball polls.
The Gators are at the bottom of the
Southeastern Conference in batting,
fielding and pitching. At 21-16 over-
all and 4-8 in the SEC, UF wouldn't
qualify for its own conference tour-
nament if the season ended today.
Those same reasons for doom
and gloom have placed the Gators
in a familiar underdog role.
Maybe the Gators need some sort
of extra incentive to play well.
In the College World Series last
season, Tennessee provided such a
spark, announcing that a freshman
would be the starting pitcher against
the Gators. Three hours before
game time, Volunteers coach Rod
Tim Casey L u k e

UF responded to the Volunteers'
bush-league move, winning 6-4 af-
ter Matt LaPorta hit a home run that
almost landed in Iowa.
Now that the Gators aren't the
team with the No. 1 ranking and the
expectations that come with it, they
can regain the 'why not us?' attitude
that propelled them to the best sea-
son in school history last year.
It's just a matter of time before
the law of averages rules in favor
of UF. Statisticians would apply
the law of large numbers by using
a player's career batting average as
a theoretical mean, and their current
average as a sample mean to project
Adam Davis, a .313 career hit-
ter, is batting .265 so far this year.
Probability should influence him to
have an average more than .500 dur-
ing the remainder of the season.
The same observations can
be made about catcher Brian
Jeroloman, a .306 career batter, and
Matt LaPorta, a .314 career batter,
who are both hitting .250 this year.
While the Gators have lost 10 of
their last 15 games, the players and
coaches have echoed the same senti-
ments aboutpossible reasons for the
"The ball isn't falling our way, we
just can't catch a break," and similar
