Paramedics assist Denise Giraldo, 19, who was struck and pinned under a Pepsi truck near Turlington Plaza on Friday.
Student survives truck accident

the beeping, she heard the yelling, but Denise
Giraldo said she couldn't turn the handlebars
of her motor scooter fast enough.
The truck backed over her.
For more than 20 minutes, Giraldo, a 19-
year-old UF freshman, was pinned beneath
the back end of a loaded Pepsi truck late
Friday morning on Union Road just before its
intersection with Buckman Drive.
"I was awake the entire time." -
UF freshman, hit by Pepsi truck Friday
Witnesses said the truck sounded like it
was falling apart as it hit.
Others saw blood and feared the young
woman wedged between the blue Yamaha
scooter and the large truck had been killed.
She was alive but badly injured and
rushed by ambulance to the Shands at UF
Before the ambulance arrived, about 20
students and the truck driver tried in vain to
Her pelvis was shattered, some of her
internal organs were damaged and her right
arm was broken. Caroline Camacho, Giraldo's
mother, said doctors predict she may be in the
hospital for three months.
But the green-eyed brunette still smiled
from her hospital bed Saturday. Surrounded
by a bright garden of get-well plants, cards
and balloons in her room on the 10th floor of
Shands, Giraldo said the day before seemed

Groups work to change UF policy to protect transgenders

Discrimination against UF com-

for men who wear high heels is still
absent in the university rules.

Thick woods block out busy
Williston Road and sprawling
student apartment complexes.
Down a winding path, regal villas
twinkle against the forest backdrop.
Cadillacs and Lexuses fill drive-
ways, while small yellow flowers
grin from beneath royal palms.
Here, on the outskirts of town,
UF has lent its name and a few
resources to Oak Hammock, an
upscale retirement community.
"There is nothing that can match
this at all or even come near it,"
said Jack Clements, who scoured 21
retirement communities before find-
ing a home at Oak Hammock.

that opens the undergraduate expe-
rience to the Social Security set.
Oak Hammock, which opened
two years ago, sits on 136 well-
groomed acres in South Gainesville.
The retirement community, a mix of
condominiums and single-family
homes, features health care, recre-
ational activities and dining facili-
ties. Residents can take advantage of
all three for a price.
The community, loosely affiliated
with UF, employs some of the uni-
versity's most recognizable features,
such as Gator 1 Cards and meal
plans. It is, however, financially in-
dependent from the university.
Regardless, residents reap the
benefits of living in a rowdy col-
lege town. On football game days,
Oak Hammock residents decked in
orange and blue pile into a bus for
a ride to Emerson Alumni Hall and
their designated party spot.
"We feel very much like we're a
part of the university family," resi-
dent Carol Higman said.
To live at Oak Hammock, one
resident in the household must be
at least 55 years old, but they do not
have to be affiliated with UF.

For the community's aging resi-
dents, Gainesville offers another im-
portant amenity: ample health care.
Oak- Hammock bills itself as a
"life-care retirement community,"
meaning it provides residents with
continuing on-site health care.
The community's health care fa-
cilities are bundled into The Pavilion
at Oak Hammock, which resembles
a more traditional nursing home.
"As life events happen, residents
can move to the health pavilion,
which has assisted living, memory
support and skilled nursing," said

Football pep rally readies campus for 100th season
By RACHEL B. ANDERSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
In a crowd of about 400 energetic Gators
football fans, UF alumna Alex Adrine of
Sarasota reminisced about the 1950s her
time spent as a cheerleader, the football games,
meeting her husband and falling in love.
"It was the best time of my life," she said,
as football fans yelled "Orange!" and then
"Blue!" across the Reitz Union North Lawn on
Sponsored by Student Government and
the Interfraternity Council, the pep rally gave
a preview of what is to come for the 100th sea-
son of Gators football and pumped up fans for
Saturday's Orange and Blue debut game.
The rally kicked off with a performance by
the Landsharks Band, a well-known Jimmy
Buffett tribute band.
Head coach Urban Meyer, six football
players, the Dazzlers dance team, the UF
cheerleaders, Albert and Alberta, and the two
best co-ed intramural flag football teams this
season also made appearances.
Fans like UF freshman Rachel Levy ex-
pressed their excitement.
"I love it," Levy said. "Everything that has
to do with the football team is great."
Months of hard work went into planning
the rally, said Alex Hug, SG's Orange and Blue
"To be part of the Gator Nation just got a
little bit better," he said.
Meyer seemed to think so, as well.
In an interview before taking the stage,

basketball championship win would boost
spirits even more for the upcoming football
Minutes later, he, thanked fans for their

the Swamp was until accidentally knocking
his headset off during a game last season.
"I had to turn around because I thought
a jet crashed behind me in the stadium," he
Junior safety Tony Joiner pointed to Meyer
as a positive coach and "a great guy."
But Joiner said fans are just as inspiring.
"It's a great feeling knowing that they're
behind you 110 percent," he said.
Defensive linebacker Brandon Siler seemed
to share all his teammates' sentiments.
After reaffirming Meyer's comments about
the team's chemistry, Siler had something to
say about the basketball team's victory, too.
"Seeing that atmosphere and what those
boys did oh God, it made me that much
more hungry," he said.
But whether there is a football champion-
ship in the making or not, Adrine, class of '57,
said her school pride will last a lifetime.
"I always have goose pimples every time I
come back," she said.

Students design 'urban village'
By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Contributing Writer
If the county approves a design
by UF architecture students, a new
"urban village" will be built that will
allow residents to eat, shop, live and
work without starting their cars.
UF architecture professor Martin
Gold and a group of his architecture
graduate students designed the ur-
ban village, which Gold presented
to the Citizens Advisory Committee
Starting in Fall 2005, Gold and
his group began planning the en-
ergy-conserving village for an area
near Southwest 20thAvenue, in con-
junction with the Alachua County
"Instead of designing
buildings, they're designing
roads and communities."
UF architecture professor
Bryan Green, a UF architecture
graduate student who worked on
the project, said this was an op-
portunity to "give back to the com-
munity and work on something
Green called the project the "little
cherry on top" of some of the more
arduous tasks in architecture.
"Instead of designing buildings,
they're designing roads and com-
munities," Gold said.
The group designed the urban
village, dubbed "SoHo" because of
its location south of Hogtown Creek,
as a developed urban area centered
on a large "green space," like a park,
Gold said. The village will feature
both commercial and residential
units, so residents won't have to
drive as much. Instead, new bus
stops and bike trails will encourage
residents to walk, bike or ride the
The village will accommodate
10,000 to 20,000 people, Gold said,
and will be close to campus, medical
facilities, entertainment areas like
Butler Plaza and museums like the
SoHo will also feature shopping
facilities, outdoor areas, condo-
miniums and restaurants in one
densely packed area. Although
larger in scale, the project is similar
to University Comers, the eight-
story development planned for the
comer of West University Avenue
and Northwest 13th Street.
Like Gainesville's Haile
Plantation or San Francisco's Yerba
Buena Gardens, to which Gold and
his students traveled for research
earlier in the year, the village will
push for "new urbanism," a style
promoting alternative transporta-
tion modes, narrower streets and
less automobile traffic.
The village also has uncommon
features, such as parking garages
that use elevators to store cars.
The location of the planned
urban village currently houses 20-
year-old construction. The land is
losing money because it is not being
used to its potential, but the urban
village plan would allow for the
land and business owners to profit,
Martha Kohen, director for the
UF School of Architecture, said
Gold's group of graduate students
has gained meaningful experience
from the exercise.
Instead of working on a hypo-
thetical problem for their work,
these students are "doing a real-life,
practical project that brings them
closer to understanding many
professional issues," like research,
design and analysis, Kohen said.
Gold presented his group's
research to the Citizens Advisory
Committee on Wednesday, as
well as to the Technical Advisory
Committee and the Bicycle/
Pedestrian Advisory Board at earlier
The Citizens Advisory
Committee moved to accept the
group's research and plan as a final
design, as the other three commit-
tees had done earlier.
In his last presentation, Gold will
show the design to the Metropolitan
Organization for consideration May

more than 500 people stood in a line that snaked along South
The crowd, young and old alike, waited for the doors to
open at 9 a.m. to stock up on the discounted used books from
the biannual Alachua County Friends of the Library book sale.

through the warehouse doors, Barber and
other book lovers hovered over boxes, crates
and luggage bags, ready to fill them in a book-buying frenzy.
The sale features books that range in price from 25 cents to
$3 or more for collectables and books signed by the author.
"It's really cheap," said UF senior Elizabeth Trang, adding

and that she usually buys romance novels for her mother.
More than 300,000 books, records, CDs, DVDs and maga-
zines were donated, and all proceeds benefit library and litera-
cy projects in Alachua County, according to the FOL Web site.
"If we didn't have all those wonderful donations from the
community, this wouldn't work," said Beverly Bartlett, trea-
surer of the organization.
She said the sale started in 1954 and is run entirely by vol-
unteers. While the sale only made $80 back then, it grossed
$130,000 last year.
The sale runs today and Tuesday from noon until 8 p.m. and
will end Wednesday at 6 p.m., when allbooks willbe 10 cents.

Drug company sued
without much cause
hen do you know your judicial system is broken?
WConsider the case of Leonel Garza.
Garza died of a heart attack after taking the
much-maligned painkiller Vioxx.
Last week, Garza's wife was awarded $32 million in
damages after suing drug maker Merck & Co., Inc. for her
husband's death. This was despite the fact that, when he
died, Garza was a 71-year-old lifetime smoker who had suf-
fered a previous heart attack and undergone a quadruple
We can't make this stuff up.
The plaintiffs couldn't even prove how long Garza had
been taking the medication; Mrs. Garza claimed that Garza
had been receiving sample doses for a month, but Garza's
cardiologist said he didn't remember giving any to the
The case was tried in small, closely knit Starr County,
Texas, which, according to The Wall Street Journal, is known
for being "plaintiff-friendly." As if that weren't bad enough,
many of the jurors personally knew Garza and his family.
Thankfully, the $32 million verdict will likely-be reduced
to $7.75 million under a Texas law that limits punitive dam-
ages. But even that is too much.
This isn't the first time that Merck has had trouble de-
fending itself against people claiming that Vioxx killed their
A $13.5 million verdict was rendered against Merck for
the heart attack death of John McDarby, a 75-year-old with
diabetes and atherosclerosis.
And there was a $253.4 million judgment against the
pharmaceutical maker for the death of Robert Ernst, a
59-year-old. marathoner whose arteries were 70 percent
clogged. The Ernst case was particularly nauseating be-
cause Ernst actually died of an arrhythmia, which Vioxx
has never actually been shown to cause.
Merck currently faces 11,500 more lawsuits over Vioxx.
That number is expected to grow, in part because of the cre-
ation of a so-called "trial-in-a-box," which includes video
testimony, courtroom presentations and a road map for
planning a case against Merck. Successful attorneys utiliz-
ing the "trial-in-a-box" just have to pay a contingency fee
of 3 to 6 percent of the winnings back to the lawyers who
created the thing.
Filing suit has never been easier.
Of course, for every jackpot awarded, there are probably
many people with legitimate grievances against Merck. The
problem is distinguishing them from the frivolous filers.
Divining just how much effect a drug has had on a
person's death is a complex task. But the simple fact that a
person was taking Vioxx at the time of a heart attack isn't
prima facie evidence that the attack was caused by the drug.
It's a subtle point that apparently gets lost in the confusion
of court documents and expert witness testimony.
And at the same time, it's worth remembering that
during the period that Vioxx was on the market, it was ap-
proved by the Food and Drug Administration. The average
drug spends 14 years getting through FDA procedures, and
Vioxx made it through all that.
The lawsuits didn't start dropping until Merck volun-
tarily pulled Vioxx off the shelf amid concerns for consumer
Still, maybe there is just cause for some of the suits
against Merck. But to prevent any more miscarriages of
justice like the Garza verdict, we should require a higher
standard than some tenuous link between Vioxx and a pos-
sibly wrongful death.

Liberal pettiness leads to bitter misery
APew Research Center report released in February
claimed conservatives are substantially happier
IL people than liberals across all income groups. It's not
the first study to suggest such a gap; an ABC poll in October
even found that Republicans are more satisfied with their sex
Syndicated columnist George Will noted that Republicans
have been happier than Democrats every year since the
survey started in 1972. He explains the survey results by
suggesting that conservatives have more pessimistic dispo-
sitions and hence are pleased when they are proved wrong
about the course of events and vindicated when they are
But another theory came to my mind recently when I was

In a Chrysler Group commercial for its new Dodge
Caliber perhaps you've seen it yourself a fairy buzzes
around a city using her wand to make things cute, such as
turning a building into a gingerbread house. When a man
laughs at her, she changes his appearance, giving him a
sweater draped around his neck, white shorts and a small
pack of dogs with a pink leash.
Gay advocates say the man looks gay and find the com-
mercial intolerant and stereotypical.
Here's another story that suggests liberal-oriented people
have a pathological need to be petty.
The Ohio State University Mansfield faculty voted with-
out dissent to investigate a reference librarian who recom-
mended four best-selling conservative books for the school's
First Year Reading Experience Committee. The librarian said
he made the recommendations after committee members
suggested left-wing books, but that didn't stop three profes-
sors from filing complaints of discrimination and harass-
ment against him, saying the book

Matt Melone ter they became household names,

email@example.com sions of special interest groups.
By fueling the fires of racial,
gender-based, sexual and ethnic
discord, and by extension, lacking the capacity to laugh at
the occasional colorful joke, liberals have made their lives
bitter and miserable.
The most insulting part is that conservatives continue
to get the best of them. Every liberal, from the Manhattan
elitist to the community college student who gets his news -
from Jon Stewart, is confounded by how Midwestern yokels,
religious nuts, brainwashed military types and flag-waving
suburbanites continue to effect policy.
. Though this caricature does not apply to all liberals, it ap-
plies to enough of them to account for the "happiness" gap.
It also applies to enough of them to create a liberal stereotype
so repulsive to conservative Americans that they show up in
droves on election days. And because that liberal stereotype
.grows uglier by the month, the chances of liberal Democrats
coming to power grow ever slimmer.
Though a number of news outlets ran stories on the Pew
Research Center report's findings, most conservatives were
less than incredulous. If liberals have been unhappier in one
form or another since 1972, tonight I propose we conserva-
tives raise our drinks and toast to 34 more years of the same.

Before the accident, Giraldo was

She was almost there when she

A charter bus stopped at the in-
tersection, trying to turn onto Union
Road from Buckman Drive. The driver
of the Pepsi truck, Byron D. Byrd, 24,
backed up to make room for the bus to
pass. The truck started its usual "beep,
beep, beep" as Byrd put the truck into
"It was so quick," Giraldo said.
Pepsi officials have not released a
statement because the accident is still
under investigation, Pepsi spokes-
woman Kelly McAndrew said.
At about 11:20 a.m., witnesses
began to call 911. Others tried to help
"A big crowd of students were try-,
ing to lift the truck off her before fire
rescue got there," said Allen Rout, a
UF employee at the scene.
Students and other witnesses had
formed a ring around the back end of
the truck, trying to move the vehicle
enough for Giraldo to escape, Rout
said. But the truck was too heavy it
was loaded with hundreds of 20-ounce
bottles of Pepsi products.
Susan Mickelberry, the coordinator
for information and publication in the
UF financial affairs office, was filming
a video for UF Preview at Century

"The amount of pressure that came

During the ordeal, Mickelberry
said, Giraldo kept her cool.
"I didn't know why I was there,"
Mickelberry said. "I was terrified. But
I took her hand. I asked her name. She
said, 'Denise.' Then she said to me
very calmly, I think I'm losing a lot
of blood.' I was so amazed how calm
SOn Saturday, Giraldo gave a reason
for her calm: "Inner peace," she said.
Giraldo even tried to single-hand-
edly help herself. She raised her left
arm to demonstrate.
"With this hand," she said, "(I) was
holding up the truck. I guess that was
good because it provided stability."
But Giraldo was still locked to the
pavement as the sun moved directly
"The sun at 12 o'clock was hitting
me pretty good," Giraldo said. "But
then this paramedic guy stood in front
of me, and that was pretty amazing."
Gainesville Fire Rescue responded
to the scene about 10 or 15 minutes
after the accident, Mickelberry said.
Once there, they raised the truck with
special air bags and freed her within
minutes, said Gainesville Fire Rescue
spokesman Paul Kincaid.
As the firefighters slid Giraldo out
from under the truck, the crowd of
more than 50 onlookers cheered.
It was mid-afternoon Friday when
Giraldo's parents received a call from
the University Police, and they drove
from West Palm Beach.
"It was crazy I thought she was
dead," Comacho said Saturday from
her daughter's bedside in Gainesville.
And on Saturday, family and
friends surrounded the bedside where
Giraldo was resting and keeping a
sense of humor.
"The first thing she said to me
was, 'Don't laugh at me,' when she
was coming out of ICU," said UF
student Mariana Gardinala, a friend

Deaf watch stories in silence
By SOOYEON KWON
Alligator Contributing Writer
While music blared outside
and rowdy fans headed to watch
the UF football team play in the
Orange and Blue game Saturday,
six enthusiastic, silent storytell-
ers filled the Reitz Union Grand
They never spoke up, but
their gestures and facial expres-
sions allowed them to commu-
nicate. This was the third annual
Deaf Storytelling Festival.
Storytellers shared their
unique experiences and signed
stories by using American Sign
Language along with animated
performances. Stories ranged
from anecdotes about traveling
in Europe to the tale of a tragic
About 80 attended the fes-
tival, including sign language
students, deaf visitors from
Gainesville and presenters
from Tampa and Orlando who
explored deaf culture and sign
"Honestly, I can't under-
stand sign language,
but I have felt such
enthusiasm and desire
for telling their stories."
The festival started with an
opening from Michael Tuccelli, a
communication sciences and dis-
orders professor who has been
deaf since birth, and his wife,
Maureen Tuccelli, who .teaches
a course in interpreting sign
language at Florida Community
College at Jacksonville.
Michael Tuccelli also serves
as the faculty adviser for the
Signing Gators, a student group
whose members learn and teach
deaf culture and sign language
to students and the community.
At the festival, deaf people
signed without a translation
for the hearing, but Maureen
Tuccelli explained the signs with
her voice to the public during the
question and answer session.
UF freshman Jennifer Kang
said it's difficult to meet and in-
teract with deaf people and learn
their stories in Gainesville, but
the festival brought valuable ex-
periences and encouraged her to
learn sign language and become
interested in deaf culture.
"Honestly, I can't understand
sign language, but I have felt
such enthusiasm and desire for

the question: -'Why is your team looking

they're still finding a way to get better and
better in the latter part of the season, and that's

Kristen Butler certainly didn't look tired
as she broke UF's single-season home-run re-

record-breaking 16th home run Sunday, Butler
could have gotten a headache with all the con-
gratulatory slaps to the helmet she received.
Butler almost didn't know what the cel-

"To be quite honest, I didn't know what
the record was until maybe a couple weeks
ago, and I was like, 'Huh, I'm kind of dose,

UF HALL OF FAME
Wuerffel among former Gators inducted into HOF
* DOERING AND CROSS
ALSO WERE HONORED.
By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
Tuxedos and evening gowns
replaced orange and blue jerseys,
as some of UF's greatest athletes
met to be honored Friday night
at the F Club at Ben Hill Griffin
Former football stars Danny
Wuerffel and Chris Doering, along
with Dan Cross, who played on
the Gators' first Final Four men's
basketball team in 1994, were
among nine former athletes and
coaches inducted into the UF
Athletics Hall of Fame.
"I never would have guessed
15 years ago that anything like this
could have happened," Wuerffel
said. "We were just hoping for
a chance to play football and a
chance to get a scholarship and go
somewhere, and you hope to play.
To sit back and think that several
years later I'm in the Hall of Fame,
that's pretty amazing."
Arguably the most adored ath-
lete in UF history, Wuerffel cap-
tured the 1996 Heisman Trophy
while leading the Gators to their
first and only football national
He holds the Southeastern
Conference record for career
touchdown passes with 114,
which is also good for second-best
in major college history.
Wuerffel also holds the NCAA
single-season passing efficiency
record with a 178.4 rating in 1995
and the school record for career
passing yards with 10,875.
"I love playing football, and I
have been so blessed to be a part
of that football world," Wuerffel
said. "Even when I was doing it,
there was a sense that, as great as
it was, it was a part of life.
"Certainly, when you go
through tragedies like this, you
tend to reorganize your priorities
a little bit."
The tragedy that Wuerffel is re-
ferring to was Hurricane Katrina,
which devastated New Orleans'
Desire Street Ministries, where the
Heisman winner serves as devel-
opment director. Desire Street's
boarding school relocated to UF
property in Niceville this school

"It's been a great opportunity
for us to continue working in the
lives of these kids, especially with
the intense trauma they've faced,"
Wuerffel said. "It's not been an
easy year, there's been a lot of
difficult things to deal with ... but
we're very blessed to continue do-
ing the work and looking forward
to what's next."
Doering, a Gainesville native,
walked onto the team as a wide
receiver in 1992 and ended up as
a captain of the UF squad that fin-
ished No. 2 in the nation in 1995,
a year in which he was a second-
He still holds the school record
with 31 career touchdown recep-
tions, including an SEC record of
17 in a single season.
Recently, Doering signed a free-
agent contract with the Houston
Texans. He was elected to the Hall
in his second year of eligibility, al-
lowing him to be inducted along
with his former quarterback.
"I'm actually glad it didn't
work out where I was in last
year because Danny and I shared
so much together on and off the
field," Doering said. "To be going
in together just makes it all that
more special for me."
UF places 2nd at SEC Tourney; Stegmaier nabs title
* THE GATORS GYMNASTICS TEAM
TOOK FOURTH AT THE SUPER SIX.
The No. 3 UF men's golf team placed
second for the fifth time this year in the
Southeastern Conference Championships
on Sunday, but senior Brett Stegmaier broke
through to take the SEC individual title.
"To be real honest, I couldn't be more
disappointed, and at the same time I couldn't
be prouder of my kids," UF coach Buddy
Alexander said. "I's tough to take. My kids
are a little dejected right now. It won't be a
nice ride home."
Georgia took the team championship by
one stroke. Even though UF didn't win the ti-
tle, Stegmaier was able to edge out Georgia's
Brian Harman by one stroke with a 5-under-
par 205. Stegmaier won the tournament as a
freshman in 2003, which until Sunday stood
as his only collegiate win.
"[The win] feels really good," Stegmaier
said. "I won it as a freshman, so it feels good
to start and end with a win."
Senior Matt Every shot even-par 70s in the
first two rounds and improved in the final
round to card a 2 under par to tie for fifth
place at 208.

Horschel tied for seventh place after combin-

finished fourth at Friday's NCAA

The Bulldogs earned their second con-

UF coach Rhonda Faehn said she was

Georgia and Alabama.

addition of two signees and the return of
the injured Melanie Sinclair will boost the
team's scores next season.
"Having a lot of us back is going to help,"
sophomore Ashley Reed said. "We've done
great this season with the team we have, so
it'll be even better next year."
The Gators seemed to reach their glass
ceiling at 196.275 points on Saturday, having
only scored a 197 or higher once this season.
But Reed said there was nothing holding the
team back from a higher score, and more
stringent judging in the postseason can
make a team's scores look deflated.
"At this level, the scores are a little higher,
but the judging is a little more strict," Reed
said. "But really, if we have a good night, the
sky's the limit."
On Saturday, freshman Corey Hartung
and junior Savannah Evans competed'for
individual event titles. Hartung tied for fifth
on the balance beam and eighth on the floor
routine, and Evans earned a tenth-place fin-
ish on the floor.
Faehn said this year's performance left a
distinct message with the Gators.

said. "This year we said, 'Hey, look at us,

Tebow shines; Meyer reaffirms Leak as starter

UF freshman quarterback Tim Tebow evades safety Curtis Carr during the Orange and Blue game on
Saturday. Tebow threw for 197 yards and a touchdown as the Orange defeated the Blue 24-6.
Welcome to "Survivor" Gators
On an afternoon when nothing
was at stake, UF quarterbacks Chris
Leak and Tim Tebow debuted their
positional duel. And while this
quarterback controversy seems to
thrive more off of media fuel than
play or experience, it is one battle
that doesn't figure to go away any-
"I think for Gator fans and col-
lege football fans, that's a great wa-
ter cooler story, that's a great discus-
sion and a great discussion upstairs
- but Chris Leak is our quarter-
back," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"And Tim Tebow is going to be a
guy that's going to play."
During a rainy version of UF's
annual Orange and Blue spring
game, Tebow completed 15 of 21
passes for 197 yards and a touch-
down, leading the Orange to a 24-6
victory. The Blue's six points were
good for the lowest total scored in
the game since 1996, when statis-
tics for the scrimmage were first
recorded. An announced crowd of
45,200 saw Leak finish 17 of 33 for
145 yards and no touchdowns.

ally good quarterback one day,"

bit out of control."
"[ wanted] anybody," Tebow
said. "I guess [the coaches] were just

seemed like touch football. Still, he

eluded. If only he had been allowed

Leak is the Gators' quarterback, as he
should be. So what if Tebow looked better
on an ugly Saturday afternoon in which the
weather matched the game?
As Meyer said, any talk of a controversy
is "a great water cooler story ... a great dis-
cussion over coffee in the morning."
It's a conversation that shouldn't even

Frustration mounts as UF drops another weekend series
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
After spending the past month
refusing to acknowledge its mount-
ing desperation, one member of the
UF baseball team came ocean after
the Gators' most recent defeat.
Despite playing a sub-,500
Auburn squad this weekend, the UF
baseball team found itself still firmly
in last. place and ineligible for the
upcoming Southeasterr Conference

UF senior Stephen Barton said
afterward, the 5-4 defeat was "frus-
treating as hell."
Despite picking up 10 hits to go
along with 5.1 innings of shutout
relief by left-hander David Hurst,

would not relinquish.

By losing two of three to the Tigers,
the Gators are more entrenched in
their last-place conference standing
than ever before.

Barton said. "We all know what's
going on, and we all know where
we stand in the rankings. It's time

Spottswood lasted only two innings,
but Hurst picked up the slack.
"David Hurst did an outstanding
job for us today," McMahon said.
"He kept us in the game. He kept
the game dose."
W while the lefty's performance
kept his .quad in the position to ral-
ly back, the Gators' offense seemed
cursed. In the second, UF designat-
ed hitter Bryson Barber hammered a
ball down the right field line, but a
leaping catch by Auburn first base-
man Andy Bennett led to an inning-
ending double play.

"It's time to get the job done in

getting it done during the game.
"It's just poor execution, .and

the spring. His performance on the practice fields
and at the Swamp on Saturday made him the No.
4 receiver in Meyer's offense. Ingram took advan-
tage with the top three receivers out and caught
multiple passes in the middle of the field with
defenders draping him. In addition to running an
end-around, he even attempted a pass, though it
landed 5 yards short of the intended receiver.
"The first series, I was a little nervous," Ingram.
said. "After I kind of settled down, I got pretty
confident and felt pretty good."
Last season, it seemed like Ingram was fading
away after getting stuck on the quarterback depth
chart behind Chris Leak, Josh Portis and Gavin
There was talk that he would transfer schools,
but he decided to transfer positions instead. He
switched to tight end before the Outback Bowl
on Jan. 2, then moved to receiver during spring
"It was probably one of the toughest processes
I ever went through," Ingram said. "I thought
when I was being recruited in high school, it was
the toughest process. But after doing something
your whole life, playing quarterback, it was kind
of hard to make that move."
With about a dozen practices under his belt at
receiver, Ingram is still improving, and that's a
scary thought with three more seasons left.
"I actually tell my roommate all the time, 'I wish
I had started off in this position,'" Ingram said. "I
probably would have had an opportunity to do a
whole lot. It's still early. I'm still learning."

a foot shorter and 100 pounds lighter.
Mismatch? My point exactly. I could've
slung the ball to Ingram and looked good
against Blue's poor, poor defense.
(By the way, is there any doubt that
Ingram is going to be an absolute stud
next year? He's going to be an NFL
player at his new position. You heard it
Offensive coordinator Dan Mullen
even admitted that he had the ability to
make Tebow look better than Leak.
Cornelius Ingram tied an Orange and Blue game record with seven
catches. Coach Urban Meyer tabbed him as UF's No. 4 receiver.
"In a controlled situation, I could
make either guy look really good," he
said. "You can script it, do different things
So Mullen gave the fans and message
board freaks something to talk about by
making Tebow look better than Leak. ,
Take the results for what they are:
Tebow admitted he was nervous be-
fore the game, which is funny because the
SEC Women's Tennis Tournament going
on across campus was more meaningful
than this "game."
Now, put Tebow in against a stacked
LSU team with SEC Championship im-
plications. If he's getting nervous before a
spring game, something tells me it would
be worse during the Gators' brutal sched-
ule this year.
I don't think the Gators will go far
with Leak, but I think itd be even worse
with Tebow at the helm. He'll play some
this year to get.a feel for things. Then the
year after, the team is his. If he lives up
to the hype, maybe he'll get the Gators
back to an SEC Championship game or
maybe even a national championship
Those results would actually mean
something. Then you can rave about
Tebow all you want.
