ball team's Orange and Blue game.
The festivities begin tomorrow with
"The Rally" a pep rally at 9 p.m. on

John Boyles was competing for more than control
over $12 million of student money he was compet-

As Student Body president, Boyles will sit beside
SUF royalty at this Fall's football games, schmoozing
with such luminaries as wealthy donors and univer-
sity trustees from his seat in the President's Box.
Privileges like choice football seating are par for

who receives a myriad of perks in exchange for his
The Student Body president automatically earns
a spot on the university's Board of Trustees, which
is how he or she nets the prime travel and game day
"The Student Body president at UCF gets 20
grand a year, and we get like eight," said Student
Body President Joe Goldberg, who holds his title
until Boyles takes office May 1. The Student Body
president's salary is $8,196.
Despite a lower salary than his peers, Goldberg
admitted that it's good to be the king.
"I got to fly a couple times on [UF's private jet] for a
couple things, like going down to Miami," he said.
In order for him to stay in touch while cruising
the Florida skies, Goldberg also owns a full-service
BlackBerry device, which is funded through student
money at a cost of about $107 per month.
But the perks extend to more than just SG's king-
pin. Thanks to the efforts of Accent, SG's speakers

guests who are in town to give speeches.
Sometimes, conquering Gainesville is not enough.

Playboy targets UF men
* THE MAGAZINE IS LOOKING FOR
THE BEST DRESSED CAMPUS MEN.
By SHIRA KRAMER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Playboy bunnies step aside. This one's
for the guys.
Not the ones with six-pack abs, but the
ones who don't need mom's help finding
something to wear the ones with style.
Playboy is holding its first ever Best-
Dressed Man on Campus contest in a
search for eight students whose style best
represents one of 18 categories. UF males
graduating in 2007 or later could find them-
selves beside Playboy's finest, said Darren
Heitner, Playboy on-campus representative
Winners will get a paid trip to New York
where they will be photographed for the
magazine's October issue, according to the
contest Web site. They will also get a prize
package with styling products and clothes.
Contestants should have a unique style
that captures the concept of the chosen cat-
egory, he said. Categories range from Jock
and Hip-Hop to Prep and Bookworm.
"We're hot right now."
Playboy on-campus representative for UF
Heitner said that while looks matter,
it's still important to fit the category you
Because UF has been in the spotlight after
winning the men's NCAA Championship,
students might have an advantage, he said.
"We're hot right now," Heitner said.
To enter, students are to submit five
to 10 full-length photos of themselves in
various outfits, along with personal di-
mensions. It should be sent to Heitner at
email@example.com by April 28.

After two and a half hours of heated dis-
cussion, Gainesville officials and concerned
residents were sure of one thing: Student
rentals in local neighborhoods mean loud
parties, packs of cars and too much beer.
The Public Safety Committee held a joint
meeting Thursday with the Community
Development Committee to talk about how
to close loopholes in the city's policies deal-
ing with parking, noise and over occupancy
in single-family neighborhoods.
Former Mayor Mark Goldstein expressed
dissatisfaction over the subject, which he and
other residents said has been on the agenda
for far too long.
"Are we dreaming?" Goldstein asked.
"We've dreamt in this room for too many
Twenty-five gears to be exact, Gainesville
resident Kathy Meiss said. A resident of the
Spring Tree neighborhood, Meiss told local
-officials their point system doesn't work and
a "major attitude change" is needed.
Similar to points accumulated on a driv-
er's license, the current system gives code
violators one point for each violation. That
point has traditionally stayed on record for
90 days. But on Thursday, city officials voted
to propose lengthening the time period
to one year and to increase fines for noise
They hope the change will decrease the
likelihood of students patiently waiting until
the 91st day to throw their next party, which
Community Development Director Tom
Saunders said he's heard occurs.
Also, officials proposed to create a track-
ing system to determine if cars habitually
parked on lots actually belong to property
The proposals will be sent to the City
Commission for approval.
Like many of the city meetings regarding
student renters this year, no students were
present to address the issue.
UF economics senior Jordan Siviglia, 22,
who has lived in an off-campus house since
August, said that students are the ones being

for no reason," he said, explaining that the

Wireless gets communal
By DEENA WLODAWSKI
Alligator Contributing Writer
After working a 12-hour shift as the
head chef at a local Gainesville steakhouse,
Bennett Depew returns home, logs onto the
Internet and begins surfing the Web.
The 27-year-old doesn't pay for an
Internet service. He uses the
Student wireless signal being broadcast
Life by his unsuspecting neighbors.
"It's not as though I'm walk-
ing around the neighborhood
with one of those Wi-Fi signals trying to pi-
rate people's Internet," Depew said. "I turn
on my computer and 15 signals come up."
And Depew's behavior is far from un-
Using a neighbor's wireless Internet
signal is a common practice known as "pig-
gybacking." It can slow the speed of some-
one's Internet connection, as well as leave
the victim vulnerable to Internet crimes.
Gerald Haskins,.senior lecturer of the
Department of Computer and Information
Science and Engineering at. UF, said there
is no statute that specifically makes pig-
gybacking illegal, but a prosecutor could
deem the behavior an invasion of privacy
"The problem is most people that this
happens to don't know it's happening, so
it never gets reported to anyone," Haskins
Haskins first began teaching classes
about the Internet in the early 1990s. In re-
cent years, he has taught his students about
activities such as "war driving," which
is when people drive around with their
laptops looking for a wireless signal. Some
people even fly single-engine airplanes over
cities to search for a signal, he said.
But most piggybackers aren't quite as
When Barrett Hollis needs to take a quiz
for one of his classes or complete a traffic
course online, he finds it hard to rely on his
old Internet router. The 22-year-old UF stu-
dent uses his own signal when he wants to
surf the Internet or talk to his friends, but he
uses his neighbors' signals when he needs
an uninterrupted online session.
"Technically, it's their fault for leaving
[the Internet connection] open," said Hollis,
who has been tapping into wireless signals
since Fall 2005. "It's kinda like if you leave
your house and leave all the doors open."
Hollis said whoever does not want
people logging onto their network should
encrypt and make it impossible to do so.
Rick Mulligan, director of public affairs
for Cox Communications, said his primary
concern is that the piggybacker could leave
a victim open to police speculation if an il-
legal actis committed.
"It's kinda like if you leave your
house and leave all the doors
"I don't think people believe it's going
to happen to them," Mulligan said. "They
think the threat is not real, but there are mil-
lions of people doing this."
Detective Joseph Mayo of the Gainesville
Police works in the Internet Crimes
Division, which has been around for about
three years. He said he personally receives
about five reports of Internet crimes a week,
including Internet fraud,-hackers and theft
or destruction of intellectual property.
Of these crimes, a few are investigated
each week, and usually one case leads to
"I've heard the. worst stories in the
world, you know," Mayo said. "And they
get away with it. It's really a sad state of
The only way to ensure that one's com-
puter is protected from piggybacking is to
encrypt it so a password is required to log
Mulligan said Cox Internet subscribers
agree to an Acceptable Use Policy that re-
quires the encryption signal to be activated.
However, Mulligan recognizes that most
customers do not encrypt.

Top 10 plan under review
By LINDSEY FRANCO
UF President Machen has spent two
months drafting the university's newest
plan to become a Top 10 public research
university. But most faculty members
will have to wait an additional two weeks
before the president seeks their opinions
on the crucial document.
At Thursday's Faculty Senate meet-
ing, Chairwoman Kim Tanzer offered
senators a chance to adopt the plan with-
out seeing it or wait until a May meeting
to review the document and weigh in.
"This leads us to kind of a conun-
drum," Tanzer said.
Thus far, faculty input on the plan has
been limited to the Senate's Academic
Policy Council, a six-member group.
Three council members have worked
with Machen to make recommendations
for the plan, Tanzer said.
Machen's effort, known as the
Strategic Work Plan, was unveiled to the
Board of Trustees at a February retreat.
College deans saw

will have two weeks to review the plan
before the Senate's May 4 meeting.
"This is an opportunity for faculty to
be much more involved in policy mak-
ing," said Richard Yost, a chemistry pro-
fessor and faculty senator.
Also at Thursday's meeting, Yost was
elected to the Senate's No. 2 position. He
will serve under Danaya Wright, who
will take over for Tanzer on May 15.
Activist addresses racism
* JACKIE BROWN HAS OVERCOME
RACISM TO RUN FOR MAYOR.
By AIMEE SACHS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Jackie Brown was one of two pupils in
her third-grade class who didn't receive
an invitation to a classmate's birthday
When they asked the girl why the two
weren't invited, she replied, "My father
doesn't want any n****rs at the party."
This was one of many experiences with
racism Brown, a Jacksonville activist and
mayoral candidate for the 2007 election,
shared with anthropology instructor Scott
Catey's Race and Racism class Thursday.
Brown opened up to the class of about
65 about how racism affected her life and
how she ultimately overcame it to run for
mayor of Jacksonville.
The first in her family to graduate
high school, Brown became pregnant her
sophomore year of college and dropped
out to live in public housing while raising
Brown explained one of the lowest
points in her life was when she didn't
get a job at a bank despite achieving the
highest score on the aptitude test. She
said that at the time, she didn't seem to fit

in a bright yellow jacket with matching

mirror because all I saw was failure."

Brown said she felt powerless until
her life took a dramatic turn.

Jacksonville's black fire chief in 2003,
Brown vowed to fight him.

born," she said of her newfound activism.
"I have not shut my mouth.since then."
Brown told the class that racism is still

Complaint forces removal of busy ambulance unit
By DOMINICK TAO
A county ambulance housed in the wrong zone is now out
of options and will soon be out of town.
Alachua County Fire Rescue's busiest unit, Rescue One, is
being forced to move from its station in Northwest Gainesville
because it is in an area zoned for only office or residential use.
"They absolutely have to be out of that location by the end
of April," said AFR spokeswoman Megan Crandall.
The rescue unit must move because the
Around city received a complaint, which AFR offi-
cials speculate might be from a neighbor.
"Somebody had to complain -, code
enforcement told us so," said Edwin Bailey, Alachua County's
deputy fire chief. "Code enforcement is a complaint-driven
But Alachua County emergency officials said the complaint
could mean trouble for Gainesville residents.
"If we move that truck out of the area, the call load would
be shifted to other units," Bailey said. "We're having to move a
unit that has considerable need in the city."
In 2005, Rescue One responded to more than 3,500 calls,
which is "ten calls every 24-hour period," Bailey said.
When moved, the ambulance could end up at another sta-
tion near the intersection of Northwest 34th Street ind U.S.
Highway 441, which is about three miles north of its current
location at 1904 NW Sixth St.
Between 2002 and early 2006, Rescue One leased a building
at 1031 NW Sixth St. an address also zoned for residential
use, said Saul Silber, the property's owner.
Crandall said they operated at that location without any
complaints. In February, the rescue unit moved to its current
location because the county's lease with Silber had run out.
Bailey said that's when somebody complained, but he was
not sure Monday why the complaint was filed.
"Our crews are very sensitive to areas like that. They
wouldn't go out and blow their lights and sirens when it isn't
necessary," he said.
AFR is not fighting the decision.
nrlstin NICnoIs / Allagator Stan
Only the Alachua Fire Rescue ambulance peeking out from the back gives any real indication that the house at 1904 NW
6th St. is Rescue One's current home. The station is being closed down due to a complaint, and its future is uncertain.

6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, APRIL 21,2006
It's been a long, busy week. Between all the preparation for
finals, the course projects to be handed in and the apartment
shopping, we're guessing that students missed a lot of the
week's news. But that's exactly why we at the Department of
Darts and Laurels are here: to keep you informed of the latest
adventures and misadventures of people in the news.
So sit down, strap in and watch us while we pick the week's
winners and losers in another edition of our very own...
Darts & Laurels
We begin by issuing a well-deserved getting-to-the-top-
ain't-easy LAUREL to Gainesville band Velveteen Pink.
When the bandmates, who are all UF students, entered in
the mtvU television show "Best Music on Campus," they had
no idea.how it was going to turnout.
Now they're one of five bands left from a starting pool of
And that's quite a feat.
At stake are a music video deal and a recording contract
with Drive-Thru Records. Together, the prizes are valued at
about $20,000. The winner, which will be announced in May, is
selected largely based on student voting.
You can log on to www.bestmusiconcampus.com to check
the band out and show your support.
But the members of Velveteen Pink aren't the only Gators
making a name for themselves.
That's why we're delivering a good-press-has-never-been-
so-easy-to-come-by LAUREL to David Finkel.
On Monday, the UF alumnus and The Washington Post
writer brought home a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the
U.S. government's attempts to democratize Yemen.
And where did Finkel get his start in journalism?
Down the street at The Independent Florida Alligator.
"It was a great start," Finkel said. "The Alligator meant ev-
After all, where would Finkel be without the lessons he
learned while working here? Probably lying in a gutter some-
where begging passersby for change.
We're just glad things turned out for the better.
But things didn't turn out so well for Cingular Wireless cus-
tomers on Wednesday.
That day, Cingular users in Gainesville, Naples, Ocala,
Orlando, Polk City, Tampa and Albany, Ga., were without
service. UF sophomore Matt Krueger eloquently summed up
many customers' sentiments.
"Cingular sucks," he said.
At the Cingular Wireless store on Southwest 34th Street,
customers were lining up to express their dissatisfaction.
Disgruntled individuals were told to call customer service with
Their response was predictable: "How?"
But while the customers were upset, we were surprised at
how much better peoples' driving was during the outage. So
we're delivering a way-to-take-one-in-the-name-of-public-safe-
ty LAUREL to Cingular Wireless for, we think, averting more
traffic accidents in a single day than any other organization in
Maybe Cingular should have these outages more often.
After all, if it saves just one life, then it's worth it.
On the national scene, we feel compelled to give a there's-
no-excuse-for-being-so-damn-crazy DART to Tom Cruise. GQ
Magazine reported that Cruise apparently had some unusual
plans following the birth of his daughter.
"I'm gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good.
Very nutritious. I'm gonna eat the cord and the placenta right
there," the actor reportedly said.
Cruise later claimed he was only kidding. But we really have
to wonder why somebody would kid about that kind of thing.
It's time Cruise broke out of his Scientology-induced haze
and came back down to earth with the rest of us.
Eat a placenta?
Seriously. That's just freaking gross.

Many executives don't deserve their pay
earlier this week, the bankrupt Delta Air Lines asked
employees nationwide to clean the company's air-
planes at night without being paid. However, the
employees will not go without any compensation. The
airline plans to reward their eight-hour shifts of clean-
ing floors, windows and bathrooms with free T-shirts.
Furthermore, the company states that employees choosing
to work for free are extended the lucrative opportunity to
show pride in their company.
That offer was actually accepted by some of the airline's
employees. But the vast majority appropriately viewed it
as a ridiculous request that appealed to the sensibilities of
a bygone era. Nowhere is the disappearance of corporate
morale more evident than in the airline industry, where
hard times and bankruptcy have been a way of life for
years. These economically harsh times have been further
exacerbated by strained relations between airlines' man-
agement and its employees.
This animosity spurs from one primary source: the
grossly incompetent and oblivious behavior of these com-
panies' upper-level administrators.
With the increase in oil prices and the threat of terror-
ism in recent years, airlines have naturally hit on hard
times. However, instead of reacting appropriately, the
management teams of companies such as United, Delta
and Northwest airlines saw the hard times as a reason
to begin securing their own pensions while looting those
of the functional employees. Management teams are con-
fronted with neither personal nor corporate culpability for
the airlines' failures. Indeed, bonuses and raises have been
awarded to chief executive officers, chief financial officers
and other managerial prima donnas even in the face of
corporate financial ruin.
Even more callously, when its airline publicly hits the
rocks,,management turns to the employees requesting
drastic salary cuts and other severe concessions. These

firstname.lastname@example.org The media often details an
airline's troubles as being a result
of pilots, flight attendants and

their company in a childish fit. However, nothing could
be farther from the truth. These employees merely refuse

In some ways, the airline industry may be prophetic of

Women should band together to help protect their rights
Last month, South Dakota Gov. Michael
Rounds signed into law a bill banning
abortion in virtually all cases. About
ten additional states, including Florida's
neighbors Mississippi, Alabama, and
Georgia are currently in the process of
passing similar bills. How does this affect
women in Florida? Proponents of these bills
hope to challenge and eventually overturn
Roe v. Wade, which would put abortion in
jeopardy in everywhere.
Ever since we won the right to abortion
in 1973, our rights have been restricted at a
steady pace. Lack of clinics, waiting periods,
high costs, parental notification, insufficient
providers and mandatory counseling ses-
sions all contribute to a mounting wall that
obstructs a woman's right to an abortion.
The freedom to decide when and if we
Stephanie Seguin bear children
Liz Albelo is critical to
Speaking Out our liberation
We can't be
on equal footing with men if we can't make
life-altering decisions, like whether to carry
a pregnancy to term. Childbearing is physi-
cally dangerous and -hard work, and we
should be able to decide whether or not we
want to do it.
These attacks on abortion are part of a
larger attack on birth control. The Food and
Drug Administration continues to delay
its decision to make the morning-after pill
available for over-the-counter use, and some
states are introducing "conscience clauses"
into law, which allow pharmacists to refuse
to distribute birth control. Also, the South
Dakota bill contains dangerous language
declaring that life begins when an egg is
fertilized. This language puts methods of
birth control that can work after fertilization
in jeopardy like regular birth control pills
and the morning-after pill.
How can we prevent these attacks on
our rights? History has shown us that when
women get together they are capable of out-
standing victories. In 1989, after the Supreme
Court's Webster decision that allowed states
to restrict abortion, then-Florida Gov. Robert
Martinez called a special legislative session
to be the first state to impose restrictions on
abortion. Over 10,000 women showed up at
the capitol demanding abortion rights not be
touched. No restrictions were passed, and
Martinez was defeated in the next election.
States around the country that were watch-
ing Florida before imposing their own restric-
tions on abortion held off.
The way we won the right to an abortion
in the first place was by women getting or-
ganized. Together we have been able to beat
back some of the restrictions and efforts to
take away our hard won rights, and together
we will push forward for more. We demand
complete control in making the decision
whether to have a child, as well as programs
that make raising a child easier, like paid pa-
rental leave and universal child care. We can
go forward again. If you want to get involved
in winning more rights for women, come
to Gainesville Women's Liberation's speak-
out for abortion and birth control on April 25
at noon in the Plaza of the Americas.
Stephanie Seguin and Liz Albelo are members

Loose definitions of intolerance are counterproductive
William Foster's letter bashes Florida Republicans for "their
hateful homophobic activities," implying that support for the
preservation of traditional marriage somehow constitutes fear
or hatred of gays. Foster is intelligent enough that he should
distinguish between hateful or fearful intolerance and what is
simply resolute disagreement.
If supporting a ban on gay marriage reveals an intolerant
view, then the same is true of hawking homosexual marriages
- which shows intolerance of the idea that heterosexual mar-
riage is the only legitimate kind.
Such loose definitions of intolerance are counterproductive.
A disagreement can exist without condemnation of immorality
or weirdness and without accusations of hate or intolerance.
Further, a state ban on gay marriages would hardly affect

'An Alachua judge made UF's Board

but repealed the judgment this month.
Because of that, UF does not have the
authority to dose the CLO, said Scott

UF officials still want to be the CLO's
trustee, Orlando said, despite the judge's
"We do because we feel that those are

A date has not been set for an Alachua

CLO Alumni Foundation Executive

He said the foundation would be the
best trustee for the CLO because they
"need an entity that doesn't stand to gain

If the CLO were to dose, the money

Transfer of Power
Virginia dismissal leads Canadian to UF
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
She was unhappy with her unde-
Despite how much individual
glory she had, she couldn't meet her
goals, athletically or academically.
Her coaches weren'twhat she ex-
pected and neither was her school.
It was time for a change.
Diana Srebrovic, a freshman ten-
nis sensation at Virginia, no longer
wanted tobe a Cavalier. She kept her
intentions a secret, all while looking
for a new place to call home.
"I wanted to get out of Virginia
because I felt I wasn't reaching my
tennis goal there," she said. "I was
looking for a school where I thought
I could reach my maximum poten-
tial in tennis."
That school was UF.
But when Srebrovic opted to
leave Virginia for UF in February
2005, she couldn't have predicted
what would follow.
The tennis star was ranked No.
34, and although she knew Virginia
wouldn't exactly approve of her de-
cision, she thought the school would
Instead, the team dismissed her
immediately, despite the fact that
she was the Cavaliers' best player,
undefeated in dual-match play and
the team leader.
"It wasn't something I expected
that would happen," she said. "I
played No. 1 for them. I had won ev-
ery match for them. I think I helped
the team a lot, not only tennis-wise.
I felt I helped the team emotionally
- them knowing I was there."
Srebrovic said she didn't al-
ways agree with Virginia coach
Phil Rogers but had a "pretty good
relationship" with him before her
decision to transfer.
Still, the two had their share of
disagreements, she said.
"I guess I didn't completely
understand his way of coaching,"
Srebrovic said. "I wish him all the
best, but I still don't understand
why he didn't want me on the team
after niy decision to transfer."
Virginia went into a tailspin af-
ter Srebrovic left, going 3-10 in its
final 13 matches. After 23 years at
Virginia, Rogers retired at the end
of the season.
Messages were left on Rogers'
phone, but none were returned.
While one team cast out
Srebrovic, another anticipated her
UF coach Roland Thomqvist had
recruited Srebrovic since her days in
Thomqvist tried to recruit her
out of high school, but a scholarship
was not available at that time.
"I told her when one opened she
would get it," Thomqvist said. "But
a player of her caliber isn't going
to play without a scholarship. Not
when the Harvards, the Dukes and
the Virginias are offering them."
"She has added a ton of
experience and firepower
to the lineup. We're a
scary team with her and
Alexis [Gordon] at the top."
UF women's tennis coach
Srebrovic ultimately chose
Virginia over other schools because
of its strong academics.
When Virginia released Srebrovic
in February of 2005, Thomqvist
pounced on the chance to sign the
nine-time Canadian national cham-
pion. He brought Srebrovic to UF for
a campus visit.
That was all it took. Srebrovic
said she planned to go to Georgia
after UF but never made the trip.
"After I came to visit, I made my
decision," Srebrovic said. "I knew
this was the school for me."
She said the players, coaches and
facilities are top-notch at UF, so there
was no need to look elsewhere.
And because Virginia had re-
leased her, she didn't have to sit out
a year. She enrolled at UF in the fall.
But things didn't get any easier.
From fitness workouts to the
cone drill in practice, Srebrovic had
never been challenged this hard by
her coaches in Virginia.
But the hard work would pay off
sooner than anybody thought.
"I think everything happens for a
reason," she said. "I think my year
at Virginia has ultimately made me
a better person."
Currently ranked No. 5 in the
country, Srebrovic is looking for-
ward to competing in her first-ever
NCAA Tournament in May.
But despite her meteoric riseup
the collegiate ranks, she will not be
joining the professional tour any-
"One-hundred percent I'm
coming back," she said. "I'll be here
until I'm done with my four years."
Thomqvist said the "sky's the
limit" for Srebrovic, and she can be
a great professional tennis player
whenever her heart desires.
With the help of Srebrovic, the
No. 4 UF women's tennis team has
only lost one match this season. And
with an undefeated Southeastern
"Conference record, the host Gators
should be the favorite to win the
SEC Tournament this weekend. .
"Everything has fallen into place
so nicely," she said. "I couldn't
imagine things going better than
they are right now."
Srebrovic entered the National
Indoor Singles Tournament in
November as one of the top play-
ers in the country, but by no means
the favorite. By the end of the
Tournament, she would stand as the
"It felt great," she said. "I felt like
all the hard work had paid off."
With the victory, Srebrovic
figured she would be ranked in
the top 10, but when the rank-
ings came out, she was a little
surprised to see her name at No. 1.
Although UF senior Alexis Gordon
had previously held a No. 1 ranking,
Srebrovic started at No. 1 singles
when team play began.
"She has added a ton of experi-
ence and firepower to the lineup,"
Thomqvist said. "We're a scary team
with her and Alexis at the top."
Early in the season, Srebrovic
had tendonitis problems in her right
Achilles. She also had to cope with a
blister on her foot and a cold. While
suffering some early losses due to
the health problems, she bounced
back to finish with a regular-season
record of 13-5, all coming at the No.
1 and No. 2 singles positions.
But Srebrovic has meant more to
UF than just her play on the court.
Sophomore Whitney Benik, U's
No. 3 singles player, had trained
with Srebrovic at the International
Tennis Academy in Delray Beach
when they were teenagers.
Benik said Srebrovic's emotional
support to the team has helped just
as much as her play.
"She is so important to the team,"
Benik said. "She is one of my best
friends here. It helps me so much for
her to be here. It would be a different
team without her."
Srebrovic said she has enjoyed
her time at UF more than her time
spent in Virginia. Itwas nice, just not
the right place for her.
"Its way, way different here,"
Srebrovic said. "The people, the
environment, everything is a lot
different. I feel I'm playing way bet-
ter and getting way better coaching
here. It's exceeded my expectations.
I love it here."
Still, Srebrovic said she has no
regrets about choosing Virginia.
Gators could be own worst enemy in SEC Tourney
* UF HAS LOST JUST ONCE IN 132
SEC MATCHES AT HOME.
By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
The No. 4 UF women's tennis team (18-1,
11-0 Southeastern Conference) seems to have
everything going for it heading into the SEC
The Gators are 131-1 all-time at home
against SEC opponents. They are perfect
this season against the SEC. And they have
the hot Florida weather on their side as they
head into today's quarterfinal match against
South Carolina at the Ring Tennis Complex
at 10 a.m.
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said the great-
est competition for the Gators (18-1, 11-0 SEC)
this weekend mightbe themselves.
But it's not like teams are going to roll over
and give UF the Tournament Championship,
"I like the fact that we're at home, but we're
not going to look through anybody," he said.
"We just can't get too overanxious or overcon-
fident. We just have to play our game."
In his fifth year at UF, Thomqvist has never
lost an SEC Tournament match.
But players-have come and gone during
that time, so not everyone has experienced an
"It's new for us," UF sophomore Diana
Srebrovic said. "Every year there is different
people on the team, every championship is
Despite the perfect SEC record, the Gators
are still looking to improve this weekend
- particularly in doubles.
"It's huge," UF sophomore Whitney Benik
said. "People probably don't think it is because
it's only one point. But it's by far the most im-
portant point. It can make or break you."
If the Gators win, they will play either
Georgia or Tennessee on Saturday at 10 a.m.
The championship game is scheduled to be
played at noon on Sunday.
MEN TRAVEL FOR TOURNEY:
March Madness is over,
Ten niS but there is still talk about
The No. 14 UF men's tennis team is vying
to be one of the 16 teams to host an NCAA
first- and second-round regional. UF coach
Andy Jackson said his team is "on the bubble"
to be a host heading into the SEC Tournament.
The Gators (14-6, 8-3 SEC) will play South
Carolina in the quarterfinals at 10 a.m. today
in Tuscaloosa, Ala. If UF advances, it will face
the winner either Mississippi or Arkansas in
the semifinals on Saturday at 2 p.m.
The finals are scheduled for Sunday at 2
"Getting to Sunday would get us the host,"
Jackson said. "One match would help, but two
would put us over the top."
The Gators, who have won five straight
matches, seem to be on a roll entering'
Tournament. And the setback from freshman
Ryan Sweeting's midseason suspension ap-
pears to be a distant memory. UF sophomore
Greg Ouellette said it hurt the team when it
lost Sweeting, but it is not a factor anymore.
"I feel like the team has definitely forgot-
ten about what happened and moved on,"
Ouellette said. "We've accepted the fact that
we're not going to have Ryan and that we san
still win it all."

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LEXINGTON, Ky. A woman, whose
claim that she was raped last year at a Kentucky

Chuck Hayes for damages.

Cynthia W. Smithers is asking
for $75,000 and unspecified punitive damages
for her "pain and suffering, embarrassment and
damage to reputation," according to the lawsuit
filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court in
Lexington. Fayette County Commonwealth's
Attorney Ray Larson announced in November
he would not pursue charges because he had "se-
rious doubts about the complainant's credibility
and great concern about the lack of corroboration

DRIVER PICKED UP SUSPECT: DURHAM, N.C,
- A cab driver who picked up a Duke lacrosse
player the night he was accused of raping a
stripper appeared to reinforce a timeline the
defense said supports the player's innocence
but also casts doubt on claims that nothing
happened at a team party.
When he returned to the off-campus party to
pick up a second fare after dropping off suspect
Reade Seligmann, Moez Mostafa said he saw a
woman leaving the party in anger and overheard
someone say, "She just a stripper. She's going to
call the police." Mostafa said Seligmann appeared
to be calm and jovial during the cab ride. After
dropping off Seligmann, he said, he returned to
the house to pick up another fare. When he ar-
rived, it looked like a party wasbreaking up, with
people crowded on both sides of the street.
While waiting on the four passengers whom
he would later drive to a nearby gas station, he
saw a woman walking through a crowd of men
toward a car. Mostafa said the woman appeared
to exchange words with some people in the crowd
before getting into the driver's side of a car.
"She looked, like, mad," he said. "In her face,
the way she walked, the way she talked, she
looked, like, mad."

UF regains swagger after win, preps for Kentucky
By BRIAN STEELE
The Gators certainly made a
After shutting out Central
Florida 3-0 on Wednesday night,
it didn't take long to switch their
attention toward a series with
Kentucky this weekend.
After winning five consecu-
tive Southeastern Conference se-
ries, the No. 24 UF softball team
(34-18, 12-9 SEC) struggled last
weekend against No. 8 Georgia
and will look to regain its con-
ference swagger against the
Wildcats who currently stand last
in the Eastern Division.
"We can't sit too long be-
cause you have got to prepare
Kim Klement/ Alligator
UF junior outfielder Lacy Howard drove in all of the Gators' runs as they shut out of Central Florida on
for Kentucky," said junior Lacy
Howard, who drove in all.three
runs against UCF. "You win and
feel good about it, but we're not
celebrating the win.
"We're focusing on Kentucky.
Going into this weekend against
Kentucky, we want a three-win
While the Wildcats sit last with
a 3-18 conference record, Howard
is not concerned with where
Kentucky is in the standings but
with how her team plays.
"It doesn't matter who you
play, you have to bring your 'A'
game," she said. "It's what the
University of Florida brings to
the table, and that's what matters.
We just need to come together as
a team and gel."
Although the Gators were
impressive at the plate in get-
ting nine hits against the Golden
Knights, they were only able to
plate three runs, all on the one
play by Howard.
Still, UF coach Tim Walton
said getting the hits was a prom-
"I think the positive side is we
had that many batters on base,"
he said: "We get a clutch hit,
and we're going to be just fine.
We must, more importantly, just
leave everything on the field."
However, it isn't just the of-
fense that should be of concern
After the pitching staff some-
what struggled against Georgia
last weekend, freshman Stacey
Nelson pitched a complete game
shutout against UCF.
"Defense is an impor-
tant aspect of the game,
and when players make
plays, it transfers to the
offense. It's kind of like a
spark plug. We try to make
all aspects of the game
important, and when that
happens, we'll win a lot of
Still, Howard said the defense
and pitching might be affecting
the scoreboard more than the
number of outs.
"Defense is an important as-
pect of the game, and when play-
ers make plays, it transfers to the

Leak leads with louder attitude
0 THE SENIOR QUARTERBACK RETURNS TO
THE SAME OFFENSE FOR THE FIRST TIME
IN HIS UF CAREER.
By BRYAN APP
,FAlligator Staff Writer
: .. High school lore compels them. An ESPN docu-
mentary commands them.
Thousands of UF football fans will flock to
Saturday's Orange and-Blue game to catch a glimpse
of freshman quarterback Tim Tebow in action.
SThey'll see the arm that owns the career and single-
They'll see the legs that helped make Tebow the
No. 1 dual-threat quarterback prospect in the country.
They'll also see the other one, the one before the
"Chosen One," the high school prodigy who arrived
in Gainesville nearly three years ago with slightly less
fanfare. And if coaches and players are correct, fans
should like what they're watching when No. 12, not
.. No. 15, is in the game.
-:-:Returning to the same offensive system and the
same offensive coordinator for the first time in his UF
career, Chris Leak will take the field Saturday with a
peace of mind and an authority that his teammates
have never witnessed from the senior signal caller.
"I can't say exactly what did it, but Chris has a dif-
ferent attitude," junior linebacker Brandon Siler said.
:' "I've seen him yelling at people and getting people in
line. That just wasn't the Chris that we had before."
,- A lack of vocal leadership was Coach Urban
Meyer's main criticism of Leakbefore the coach's inau-
gural season at UE After last year's spring scrimmage
:. game, Leak said he was trying to grow into a more vo-
cal leader, but his coaches and teammates didn't start
noticing a difference until late in the season.
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen attributes much
of Leak's timidity to the fact that the quarterback was
grappling with learning his third offensive system in
Kim Klement/ Alligator as many years at UF.
As a freshman, Leak started the fifth game of the
Teammates say UF quarterback Chris Leak has matured into a vocal
leader in his second season under Coach Urban Meyer. SEE LEAK, PAGE 24
Atkins strives to fill void at cornerback

a pair of freshmen, a struggling

rated for a home conference series
against Auburn (18-22, 6-9 SEC)

When asked about a boost in

'swagger,' and it relates.to me as a
confidence issue," he said. "I think
that's relative to each and every

for a slumping team.
"It's awesome to beat FSU,"
Petrie said. "It's great for our con-
fidence and getting the second half
of the SEC season turned around."
But Petrie also rejected the idea
that the win would be a major fac-
tor in the team's overall attitude.
"We have a two-game winning
streak over some good teams, but
we have to keep going and not
just be happy with this," he said.
"We have a very talented team
and have always known we had
the ability to turn it around at any
time," he said. "We knew it was
hopefully a matter of time before
we got things turned around."
If the team has truly turned
things around, it certainly did so at
an opportune time.

standings, the Gators (23-18, 5-10

ingoomerback. "He likes to execute
things the right way. He's got a thing
about himself; I don't know what it is.
He'just has something about him."
It's an aura of confidence that even
has UF coach Urban Meyer, typically
an .infamous pessimist this time of
year, praising Atkins.
4'He's having a really good
spring," Meyer said. "He's aggres-
sive and he's a contact player. A lot
of times covers, they're like receivers
they're not the contact player he is.
He can be a special player."
Last year, Brown and Webb were
a very formidable duo, helping the
Gators transform into one of the top
defensive teams in the nation.
But Atkins said he hasn't felt
pressure to duplicate last year's suc-
cess, believing that will occur simply
based on talent and ability.
He felt a much greater pressure
to prove to Meyer and corerbacks
coach Chuck Heater that he's a ca-
pable No. 1 corer.
"The main pressure here was that
the coaches don't give you anything,"
Atkins said. "Coming out here, no
.one-was a starter. Once I got out here,
the main thing was staying focused
and working hard.
"The coaches told me to just keep
coming to play, and you'll be a great
Performing well in practice
doesn't always translate to success in
game situations, but Atkins already
had his one shot on the field. He more
than lived up to the hype.
In the regular-season finale
against Florida State last year, an
injury to Brown became an oppor-
tunity for Atkins. He responded with
four tackles, an interception and a
fumble recovery. He also made two
key breakups that prevented the
Seminoles from getting in the end
zone in UF's 34-7 victory.
"It was all on me," Atkins said.
"Coach told me before the game, 'It's
your time to step up and play.' That's
basically what I was waiting on all
year to hear. When he told me that, I
just went out in the game and kind of
did what I'm doing now, which is get

Now, Atkins believes he's ready
to join the nation's upper echelon
of corerbacks. While he said it will
take a ton of hard work, he thinks
All-American accolades aren't out of
"If he keeps doing what he's do-
ing," Lewis said, "he might not be
here all four years."
But Atkins has plenty of time to
worry about his future. For now, he
just wants to hit.
"When you're out on the field,
there's just a lot of trash talk," he
said. "I like to be out there on the cor-
ner, everyone thinking I'm just a little
small guy. When they come my way, I
like to just show them I'm nothing to

Meyer excited to see incumbent, freshman compete at spring scrimmage
LEAK, from page 22
2003 season under then-offensive coordinator
Ed Zaunbrecher in his precision-passing of-
fense. Larry Fedora replaced Zaunbrecher in
2004, installing more of a downfield passing
game. Fedora left UF as part of Ron Zook's
ousted coaching staff, and last season Leak
had to adjust to Meyer and Mullen's spread
offense, one that is predicated on the quar-
terback reading the defense and making snap
decisions at the line of scrimmage.
Mullen said it takes time for any player
to pick up all the nuances of the offense, but
he expects Leak to hold an advantage with a
year's worth of experience.
"This is his first chance to really sink his
teeth into an offense and be ready to go,"
Mullen said. "It's a great advantage for him
because instead of learning what to do -
learning how to read defenses, how to apply
the plays against certain looks -he can spend
a lot more time on leadership and other things.
It takes a lot of time to learn all that stuff."
Now, Leak rarely misses a read, Mullen
said. If he does, the quarterback reacts with'
specific questions rather than wondering if he
ran the correct play.
"You're just more comfortable and able to
anticipate things bet-
Gators ter," Leak said. "That's
Quarterbacks the major thing about
the second year."
Some might speculate that Tebow also
might have played a role in Leak's new atti-
tude. Even Meyer said he can't wait to see his
top two quarterbacks compete head-to-head.
"Tim Tebow is a freshman actually [he
should be] a senior in high school right now -
and that's what he is," Meyer said. "But we're
going to protect him and let him look like the
quarterback at the University of Florida. It's
great for him, and he's one guy that I think
can handle it."
When the "T" word comes up, Leak just ex-
plains how he has tried to assist the freshman.
"Everybody who comes in is highly rated,
highly talented," Leak said. "So the best thing
you can do is give advice to a young guy."
Mullen believes its just that kind of rela-
tionship that will improve both quarterbacks.
"It's more of a working relationship,"
Mullen said. "You have another quarterback
that really studies the game and pays attention
to things, who [Leak] can really talk to about
what's going on out there on the field.
"That kind of working relationship is going
to make them both better."
