Bush deploys Guard in immigration fight


* EXPERTS SAY PLAN PUTS
POLITICS OVER POLICY.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

President Bush will send up
to 6,000 National Guard troops to
the U.S.-Mexico border in a move
to strengthen border security, he
said on a televised speech to the
nation Monday night.
"For decades, the United
States has not been in complete
control of its borders," Bush
said from the Oval Office. "As a
result, many who want to work
in our economy have been able
to sneak across our border and
millions have stayed."
Bush said the number of
National Guard troops would
decrease after a year, when new
technology and Border Patrol
agents will be ready.
The new technology will in-
clude high-tech fences in urban
areas, motion sensors, infrared


cameras and unmanned aerial
vehicles to prevent illegal cross-
ings.
The National Guard deploy-
ment was an immediate measure
of Bush's immigration reform
plan, which he presented with
five objectives: Secure U.S. bor-
ders, create a temporary worker
program, hold employers ac-
countable for the workers they
hire, allow illegal immigrants
who have resided in the United
States for several years.to get
their citizenship by paying their
debts to society and helping
newcomers assimilate to the
American society by learning
English.
UF anthropology professor
Allan F. Burns said the presi-
dent's measure is directed to in-
crease his political support.
Recent polls have shown
Bush's popularity rating decreas-
ing due to the war in Iraq.
Burns said the main problem
with the president's plan is tak-

Library plan delayed

Before students can sip
Frappuccinos in the new wood-
paneled reading rooms of Library
West, construction crews must put
the finishing touches on the three-
year-long project, whose comple-
tion is three months overdue.
The campus' main library,
whose opening was first slated
for January and then pushed back
to February, is now scheduled to
open its doors in early July.
"That's kind of a flexible mov-
ing target, you might say," UF
spokesman Steve Orlando said.

The library shut down on

renovation and the construction of
a 60,000-square-foot addition to its

it would reopen by

RESEARCH

IFAS offers life 'Solutions'


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Contributing Writer

On everything from turf grass to terrorism,
a new UF Web site offers information and so-
lutions for Florida's general public to improve
their lives.
Designed to be the online presence for UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences' ex-
tension services, the Solutions for Your Life Web
site will officially debut today.
The site, located at www.solutionsforyour
life.com, provides information on gardening,
family life and consumer choices, agriculture,
community development, the environment and
youth development. It is a gateway to exten-
sion, research and education resources from
UF/IFAS.
Extension service is designed to communi-
cate scientific knowledge and expertise from
land-grant universities to the general public and
agricultural producers.
"Extension service takes research from land-
grant universities, puts it into layman's terms

students spend their summers

and gives it to the agricultural producers to be
better growers," said Liz Felter, UF/IFAS exten-
sion faculty in charge of web content develop-
ment.
However, Felter explained that Solutions for
Your Life is not intended only for growers.
"There is something there for every-
one, from the 4-H information for
kids to information on aging and care
giving for older individuals. Everyone
can use this Web site."

Cyclists remember fallen in
Wednesday 'Ride of Silence'
A memorial cycling event will
take place on the UF campus
Wednesday to remember and
honor cyclists who have been in-
jured or killed while riding their
bikes.
The Ride of Silence was first
organized in Dallas in May 2003
by Chris Phelan after endurance
cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by
the mirror of a passing bus and
killed. The ride was meant to re-
member Schwartz and all cyclists
killed while riding their bikes, ac-
cording to a press release.
Originally meant to be a one-
time event, the Ride of Silence is
now an international awareness
event, with 258 rides scheduled all
over the world this year, according
to the Ride of Silence Web site.
Although cyclists have a le-
gal right to share the road with
motorists, the motoring public
often isn't aware of these rights
and sometimes is not aware of the
cyclists themselves, according to a
press release.
The goal of the ride is to honor

those who have been injured or
killed and to.raise awareness of
the necessity to share the road
with cyclists.
The Ride of Silence is similar
to a funeral procession. Riders
are asked not to ride faster than
12 miles per hour for the dura-
tion of the eight-mile ride and to.
remain silent.
Riders will meet at 6:45 p.m.
on Turlington Plaza, where they
will briefly discuss the route and
then depart at 7 p.m.
Any type of bike is accept-
able, all levels of, ability are
welcome and helmets are man-
datory.

UF student named officer of year


* THE STUDENT IS THE YOUNG-
EST ALACHUA POLICE OFFICER.

JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

David Kemer is a unique police of-
ficer. He juggles a full course load at UF
and working as the youngest member of
the.Alachua Police Department.
On Friday, the 22-year-old was
named the department's Officer of the
Year at a City of Alachua banquet for his
hard work in his first year as a part-time
police officer.
"There's a couple of reasons that I
guess they chose me," he said. "I hate to
talk about myself like that."
Most people go to the police acad-
emy after attending college, but Kemer
said he decided to attend both at the
same time. The award is not typically


presented to someone so young.
"There's no specific age," he said.
"It's just generally not awarded to first-
year officers at 22."
A year ago, he began working as an
officer 35 hours per week while pursu-
ing a degree in political science and a
minor in criminology.
In addition to being the youngest
officer at the department, Kemer is also
the only part time officer.
"I looked up so much to the officers
at the department and they all have
so much experience and work ethic,"
Kemer said. When you compare me
to other officers like that, it just means to
world to me."
Originally from West Palm Beach,
he attended the United States Air Force
Academy starting in Summer 2002.
After breaking his foot he left for a year.
He attended UF in the meantime to keep
up with his education.


"I just ended up loving UF and stay-
ing here."
He began studying at the police
academy in spring of 2004, becoming an
officer seven months later in February
of 2005.
Kemer responds to various calls at
the department, such as battery, theft,
domestic disturbances and narcotics.
"The times that I enjoy the most are I
get on a lot of foot pursuits and I run af-
ter them. I always love catching them,"
Kemer said. "[It's] just being an officer
of high integrity that's really just here to
help people."
Kemer received the award at a yearly
banquet held by the City of Alachua
Chamber of Commerce, which honors
the business of the year, as well as officer
of the year.
"I guess it's just overall work ethic,
according to that award," Kemer said.
"It's my first plaque on the wall"

Vet medicine


gets new hall

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students and faculty members within UF's
Food Animal Reproduction and Medicine
Services (FARMS) program will have a new
building in which to do their research after treat-
ing local farm animals. Deriso Hall, part of the
College of Veterinary Medicine, will open for the
first time Wednesday to an audience of nearly 100
guests with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open
house at 4 p.m.
FARMS members spend much of their time
inspecting and treating cattle and other farm
animals off-campus, but never had a building to
call their own.
"Our service was first created in 1979, but
has never had a permanent home to reside in,"
FARMS Service Chief Dr. Owen Rae said.
A gift of $1.2 million from Bob H. Deriso and
his wife Evelyn helped make funding the build-
ing possible, said Sarah Carey,
UF director of public relations
Research for the College of Veterinary
Medicine. The Derisos' herd of
Black Angus cattle contracted a strain of brucel-
losis, a disease capable of affecting both cows and
humans. The couple was interested in finding an
expert researching how to battle the infection.
They were writing their wills when their at-
tomey told them about the now-retired Dr. Paul
Nicoletti, a UF researcher who specialized in
studying infectious diseases.
"They never met Dr. Nicoletti, but their attor-
ney acted as a middle man," Carey said. "He had
a big reputation."
Nicoletti's efforts intrigued the couple, and
they decided to leave more than half their estate
to the College of Veterinary Medicine. The State
of Florida matched the Derisos' contribution dol-
lar-for-dollar, bringing the project's funding to
approximately $2.4 million.
The new building is located south of UF's
Livestock Pavilion on Shealy Drive. Wednesday's
ceremony will feature speeches by Rae, Nicoletti
and Dr. Jimmy Cheek, vice president for agricul-
ture and natural resources at the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
The new building will include faculty offices,
three new laboratories and a conference room.

New director will be tasked to cap UF admissions


* ZINA EVANS HAS EXPERI-
ENCE AT TOP UNIVERSITY

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer
Ifranco@alligator.org
The new UF director of admis-
sions will arrive just before this
year's freshman class when she
takes office on Aug. 1.
Zina L. Evans, the associate direc-


tor of admissions at the University of
Maryland, will succeed Pat Herring,
who has served as UF's interim ad-
missions director since June.
Evans will oversee an office that
has come under increased scrutiny
and parental pressure recently, as
the university has hiked admissions
standards and worked to cut the
number of students admitted.
The university admitted fewer
students for the 2006-07 academic
period than it has since 1991.


Evans said she was drawn to UF
because of the variety of opportuni-
ties available to students in each
major.
UF "UF is
.'x7. ;V;. : -'.c., suchacom-
prehensive
institution, with so many opportu-
nities," she said. "Connecting bright
students with those opportunities
- that's what's going to help us get
to that Top 10 group."
UF administrators have said that


capping enrollment and slowing the
university's growth are key factors
in UF's climb to the ranks of the Top
10 public research universities.
Evans, 42, served as direc-
tor of research for the National
Association for College Admission
Counseling before she joined the
Maryland staff, according to a UF
press release. Her appointment was
announced May 8.
Evans was also an admissions
supervisor at the University of


California-Berkeley, according to
the release. UC-Berkeley is the No.
1 public research university in the
nation, according to U.S. News &
World Report.
"Dr. Evans has admissions experi-
ence in large state universities, which
have more applicants just from the
children of alumni than there are
openings in the freshman class,"
UF Provost Janie Fouke said in the
university press release. "Her skill set
will be welcome here at U."

"We're anticipating all the
shelves will be in by June 1,"
Covey said. "Once that happens,
we can start taking the books
in."
Before it closed, Library West
housed nearly 2 million books,
maps and special collections.
About 500,000 of those vol-
umes had to be stored at an off-
campus warehouse.
Before the library can reopen,
workers will spend eight weeks
placing those books on new
shelves.
The overhauled library, with
its new 24-hour study center,
should' be humming with activ-
ity by the middle of Summer,
officials said.
However, it may reopen
without its highly anticipated
Starbucks Coffee franchise.
Library officials touted the
library's new 24-hour study
center. The plans for the popular
java joint are "hopelessly up in
the air," Covey said.
John Ingram, the library's as-
sociate director of collections,
said there is no set date when

signed to compensate for Florida's rising population and ex-
tension service's dropping audience. Felter explained that the
younger generation is less aware of its program.
"We needed a way to keep the extension audience. We live
in a world of people going to the internet for information. We
were there, and they needed to find us."
Prior to Solutions for Your Life, people could call their
county's offices for information on extension services or visit
their county's Web site, Felter said. However, there was no uni-
fied web presence for IFAS.
Felter said UF/IFAS is very excited about Solutions for Your
Life because the process of creating a web presence for exten-


sion services has never been done before.
"We want to lead the pack to becoming a model to other
extension services in other states," Felter said.
For feedback on creating the Web site, a series of focus
group sessions were used, Felter said. Two sessions were done
with random members of the general public to represent differ-
ent ages, genders, ethnic groups and socioeconomic statuses.
IFAS asked that two-thirds of the focus groups have never had
interaction with extension before, Felter said.
The other two focus group sessions were done with internal
faculty who are extension agents. These agents are UF faculty
members that are located off-campus.
"For the second two sessions, we didn't worry about socio-
economic status," Felter said. "We just wanted to make sure
that the areas of expertise on the site were represented well."


The focus groups showed that people were utilizing exten-
sion services but didn't realize what they were or that they
were associated with UF/IFAS, Felter said.
"We wanted something to identify extension with UF/
IFAS."
Research for the Web site began two years ago, but building
it has taken a year, said Ligia Ortega, IFAS web manager.
The site includes timely feature articles, databases of fre-
quently asked questions, employment opportunities and con-
tact information for each extension office in each of Florida's 67
counties. The IFAS Web team will update it frequently.
"We want to keep everything online relevant," Ortega said.
"We will continually replace the old with the new. We'll also
meet with focus groups to talk to them about what has changed
and to have them put in up-to-date information."

Loopholes

Blunders allow Machen

to go unpunished
Bernie Machen did not break the law when he failed to
produce certain cell phone and e-mail records, but he did
rattle our faith in the power of Florida's public records laws.
Last week, a circuit court judge said the UF president
was within the limits of the law when he did not hand
over certain public records requested by a UF doctoral
candidate.
The ruling is disappointing and the court has set a
dangerous precedent. In his decision, Circuit Court Judge
Robert Roundtree said that some e-mails written by pub-
lic officials are subject to Florida's Government-in-the-
Sunshine laws. Roundtree's ruling created an ill-defined
line between what's public and what's private when it
comes to the electronic communications of public officials.
It also gives public officials a shadowy corer in which to
hide from public records laws.
The e-mails that sparked this legal battle related to the
funding of Gator Growl, the annual Homecoming pep
rally presented by Florida Blue Key, an exclusive honorary
organization.
The doctoral candidate who kicked off the court show-
down has a lengthy, checkered history with Blue Key.
Charles Grapski, 40, who is also a candidate for a state
House seat, successfully sued the organization for libel af-
ter a Blue Key operative said Grapski was a child molester
during Grapski's failed 1995 campaign for UF Student
Body president.
Perhaps what is most unfortunate in this case is
Grapski's dubious history with the university. Florida's
newspapers or law enforcement officials should be lead-
ing the fight for compliance with public records laws, not
a firebrand with an ax to grind.
In the beginning, Grapski's effort to hold Machen ac-
countable was laudable, maybe even a bit noble. But his
hard-earned credibility crumbled just before the judge
ruled against him in the Machen lawsuit: Grapski, a self-
styled public records wiz, was arrested in Alachua for il-
legally tape recording a city official.
Though we support strong efforts to hold public offi-
cials accountable for their actions, Grapski's tactics were
questionable at best and childish at worst.
An attorney on the university's defense team accused
Grapski of playing "gotcha" with UF's president. The as-
sessment is unfortunately accurate: Grapski has been a
thorn in the university's side for more than a decade.
Since then, Grapski has launched a series of campaigns,
most of which ended with unsuccessful results. It was
Grapski who led the failed charge for Library West to
remain open during its renovation. Two years later, it was
Grapski who worked to block a Starbucks Coffee franchise
from the lobby of that newly renovated library.
In hindsight, we should have seen this one coming.
Nearly three years ago, only a few hours into the UF
presidency, Machen decried Florida's public records laws,
saying- that the successful search which lured him to UF
was a rarity because its records were open.
Tackling Machen in a legal battle was obviously the
next logical step in Grapski's fight against the university.
Grapski's quixotic quest is not over: He plans to ap-
peal.

Guest Column

Democrats spared
have to admit that the past six years of undergraduate
and graduate school have been difficult for me. Yeah,
it's rough dealing with professors who all think that
we can spend 20 hours a week just on their class.
I was crushed to see the 01' Ball Coach being replaced
by Ron Zook.
But the hardest thing has been living through six years
of President Bush.
After the time I've spent screaming at the American
public to wake up and smell the Texas manure, 69 percent
of the country is finally agreeing with me: Our president
is a screw-up.
Moreover, a majority of Americans even believe that
Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton was more honest and less of
a divider than our down-home values, "Great Uniter"
President. That's nearly enough to bring a smile to my
face.
When he was first elected, I don't know if anyone could
-have possibly realized that a president could screw things
up as badly as he has done. He's collected for our country
a veritable menagerie of problems, ranging from a deficit,
a uselessly intrusive intelligence program and a war in
Iraq that cannot end in a way that is desirable for us.
At this point, I'm glad that he's the one facing the heat
for all of those problems, instead of John Kerry. I can
understand why there's been a revolving door of White
House press secretaries how would you like to spend
every day of your life trying to justify everything Bush
has done?
Besides, aren't you grateful that we have a fiscal con-
servative in the White House? After watching him create
some of the largest budget deficits in history, I've begun
to wonder why.his parents never taught him how to bal-
ance a checkbook. Oh yeah, it's because his father couldn't
either.
Iraq is a problem that even his daddy realized couldn't


by Kerry's defeat
James Larson be solved. It's not hard to see that
Speaking Out one Western country trying to over-
throw a long-standing dictatorship
in a volatile part of the world wasn't
going to work. But perhaps his father did try to tell him to
stay out of Iraq. Maybe the younger Bush was too busy
contemplating the ending of "My Pet Goat" to listen.
Despite the tearful 2004 election, I'm finally at peace
with the Kerry loss. I've finally come to realize that it was
a blessing in disguise of epic proportions. There's a little
part of me that's even thankful for G-Dub. I said "little."
A Kerry victory would've meant only one thing four
years of Republicans blaming him for all of the problems
caused by Bush. That's the creed that they seem to live by
anyway don't blame yourself, it's the other guy's fault.
Economic problems? Clinton messed it up: The eco-
nomic prosperity of the '90s was overflow from the
Reagan years.
Intelligence before Sept. 11, 2001? "Well, we were told
about al-Qaeda, but Clinton should have taken it more
seriously."
If the 2004 election had gone the way I had wanted it
to, the political climate wouldn't be much different, aside
from the names. The Republicans would be screaming
at the top of their lungs, complaining how everything
is Kerry's fault instead of quietly distancing themselves
from Bush. In all likelihood, Kerry would be the one with
the poor approval rating, defending himself at every
corer although with a better mastery of the English
language.
Give him another few years, and Bush will have single-
handedly swayed the majority of Americans toward elect-
ing Democrats.
So, I'd personally like to thank George W. Bush and all
the counties that voted for him. Without them, Democrats
might actually have to work to get elected in 2008.
James Larson is a computer engineering graduate student.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

National Guard troops to the bor-

Bush to send up to 6,000 National Guard troops to Mexican border


SPEECH, from page 1


ing immigration from the civil arena and
transferring it to a military one.
The involvement of the National Guard,
Burs said, turns immigrants into military
enemies.
'The status of military enemies makes
[immigrants] feel less welcome and less
sure that the United States is a country
that respects human rights," Burns said.
Winie Cantave, director of Unite for
Dignity, an immigrant worker's rights
organization based in Miami, said that
internal policies to secure the borders of
the United States are inevitable but that
instead of solving problems, this move
will create more.
"Guard units will not-be involved in
direct law enforcement activities."
George W. Bush
United States President

She said the policy would, criminal-
ize immigrants and create terror on the
border because the National Guard could
shoot those who try to cross the border
illegally.
"Will they shoot them? I don't know,"
Contave said. "But if the president feels
the need to send the National Guard,
[the National Guard] will have to enforce
strict rule, and I think to my under-
standing I don't know how they will do
that [but by force]."
In his speech, however, Bush assured
Americans that the "Guard units will not
be involved in direct law enforcement
activities."
"That duty will be done by the Border
Patrol," he said.
National Guard troops will assist the
Border Patrol by operating surveillance
systems, analyzing intelligence, install-
ing fences and vehicle barriers, building
patrol roads and providing training, Bush
said.
In addition, Bush said the United
States was not going to militarize its
southern border.
"Mexico is our neighbor and our
friend," he said. "We will continue to
work cooperatively to improve security
on both sides of the border ... to confront

More than 250 local demonstrators gathered to march through downtown Gainesville on May 1 to protest the controversial im-

common problems like drug trafficking
and crime ... and to reduce illegal immi-
gration."
But the use of force is not the only
concern.
Burns said that members of the
National Guard might not be informed on
the different policies on immigration. He
is worried that immigrants who are wait-
ing for a residency or are in the United
States as legal temporary workers might
be a target of measures that were not in-
tended for them such as deportation.
Philip Williams, the chairman of UF's
political science department, said that the
measure also creates fear among legal im-
migrants.
Immigrants feel outraged and dis-
gusted at the anti-immigration discourse
going on in Congress and the legislation
that concludes that immigrants are a
threat to the American culture, he said.


Illegal immigrants are even more fear-
ful, Williams said, especially after an
increase in round ups of undocumented
immigrants following the first demon-
strations against a bill passed by the
House of Representatives in December.
The bill sought to construct more walls
along the U.S.- Mexico border, make il-
legal immigration a felony rather than a
civil infraction and criminalize those who
help undocumented immigrants.
Williams said that these policies are
more about the critics than about immi-
grants themselves.
Sending National Guard troops to the
border would not make a difference; it
will only redirect the routes that immi-
grants use to cross the border, he added.
The Civic Media Center, an alternative
media library, will host a forum tonight at
7:30 for participants to discuss immigra-
tion issues.

Howard said she wants to mo-
tivate employees to exercise and
teach them that they can "find time

mass index checked from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. They can also participate in a
2-mile walk at 12:15 p.m. or a 3-mile
walk at 5:30 p.m. Living Well em-


ployees will guide the walks and
hand out free water bottles printed
with the program's Web site.
"I've shot some videos of exer-
cises and stretches that they can do
at their desks," Howard said.
"I want them to start being
aware of how they can be
healthy."

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG makes big decisions while most students away


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
liewis@alligator.org

While the mice are away, the fat
cats will play.
Though thousands of UF
students spend their summers
away from Gainesville, Student
Government prefers using the dog
days to make some of its biggest
- and most controversial deci-
sions.
SG officials control about $12
million of students' money, which
is funneled to them through Activity
& Service fees.
Last Summer, the Student Senate
attempted to pump $340,000 of that
money toward the annual Gator


Growl pep rally, which is operated
by Florida Blue Key, a private lead-
ership organization.
Although a UF administrator
shot down the Senate's measure
in June, SG ultimately managed to
grant $140,000 of students' tuition
money toward the event while
about 20,000 students were out of
town.
This Summer, with another batch
of UF students on leave, Student
Body President John Boyles is look-
ing to make his mark on SG's execu-
tive branch.
At tonight's Senate meeting,
Boyles and Student Body Vice
President Lydia Washington will
present a plan to downsize the
SG Cabinet, which falls under


Washington's oversight.
The Cabinet is designed to work
as a liaison between students and
SG officials, and
is responsible for
planning student
programs..
"I think this
Cabinet bill is
really going to
revolutionize the
Boyles way the execu-
tivebranchworks
and the way Student Government
works," Boyles said.
The proposed restructuring plan
would cut the number of cabinets
from 41 to 35 and divide the officials
into two groups.
If the Senate approves the mea-


sure, 22 directors will oversee the
Cabinet's programming responsi-
bilities, while 13 secretaries fill its
advisory roles.
"I really believe [the bill] will
pass because of the fact that we did
our best," Washington said, citing
various meetings that were held
for students and -officials to discuss
the issue.
About a dozen brand-new sena-
tors will help review the Cabinet bill
at tonight's meeting. Those senators
are filling the seats of officials who
chose to leave their duties behind for
the Summer.
However, Boyles shrugged off
questions about the new senators'
experience and capabilities.
"They were selected by the sena-


tor they're replacing," he said. "I
have no question about their abili-
ties to make their decisions."
SG's executive committee will
also be making crucial decisions this
Summer, choosing students to fill
some of SG's most prominent roles
for the upcoming year.
The committee, which is com-
posed of SG's top executive officials
and Senate leaders, is preparing to
make recommendations for about
10 positions.
Those jobs cover a wide array of
duties, ranging from supervisor of
elections to chairperson of Accent,
SG's speakers bureau.
Boyles said he expects the nomi-
nations to be presented before the
Senate next week.

NCAA Tourney still a remote possibility


CASEY, from page 24

tions that went unmet.
Six draft-caliber underclassmen en-
tered the season hoping to raise or
maintain their stock for the MLB
Draft in June.
Only Gavin Dickey has made a
significant improvement from his prior
seasons.
Matt LaPorta was hampered with
an injury that caused him to miss 13
games, but he has continued to display
the power hitting that will earn him a
lofty signing bonus this summer.
Coach Pat McMahon knew that his
team's weaknesses were in finding a
second and third baseman who could
hit and play defense, but he couldn't
have expected the entire team to be last
in the SEC in batting, slugging, on-base
percentage, hits, doubles, total bases
and sacrifice flies.
Adding to the misery, the Gators


rank second-worst in runs, the most
important statistic, and have struck out
the second-most.
Unfortunately, it's not going to get
better any time soon.
I wouldn't be surprised if 10 play-
ers aren't around next year due to
transfers, graduation and professional
baseball.
McMahon continually recruits as
well as any coach in the country. Too
well, in fact.
Many of the players that sign with
UF never step foot on campus, opting
for the minor leagues instead of col-
lege.
The current players owe McMahon
and each other their full dedication in
these final, potentially meaningless
games.
If the players don't care what hap-
pens, the games will be meaningless.
But the Gators could have one last
chance to smile and enjoy baseball now
that the only thing that counts is how
they can help each other.


BASEBALL, from page 24


hit by pitches. Obviously that's what we
have to avoid because good teams like
Alabama take advantage of those."
With UF closer Darren O'Day called
into the match to relieve starter Steven
Porter during the third,-Alabama's bats
cooled considerably, but the squad did add
one more run to their tally in the fourth.
"[Porter] left the ball in the middle of
the plate against a very good [team], and
they took advantage," McMahon said. "I
thought [O'Day] did an excellent job. We
intended to go with him early from the
start."
The Gators finally responded in the
eighth. Junior shortstop Adam Davis dou-
bled to lead off the inning, junior catcher
Brian Jeroloman singled and junior first
baseman Matt LaPorta homered to left
field to bring UF back in the ballgame. But
despite the rally, the Gators fell short and
were unable to close the gap any further.


The sdme Gators trio that began the
rally in the eighth was unable to repeat its
success in the final inning.
"I thought [O'Day] did an excellent
job. We intended to go with him
early from the start."
Pat McMahon
UF coach

Davis struck out swinging, Jeroloman
grounded out and LaPorta simply watched
the game's final pitch sail by a called
strike to end the game.
And a significant pitch it was, as now
the Gators' only hope for the 2006 postsea-
son would be a strong home stand against
Louisiana State this weekend. A sweep of
the Tigers would give UF a final regular
season record of 29-27 and a slim chance of
making the NCAA Tournament.
Despite not qualifying for the SEC
Tournament in 2003, the Gators were

Gators take fourth place in regional tournament


Win propels UF into NCAA Championship


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Writer

The fifth-seeded UF women's
golf team took fourth place in
the NCAA Central Regional
Tournament on Saturday at the
Traditions Golf and Country
Club in Bryan, Texas.
UF needed to- place within
the top eight in the tournament
to earn a spot in the NCAA
Championship.
"They did well," UF coach Jill
Briles-Hinton said. "This was a
very difficult golf course. You
had to be patient and play smart


and stay focused."
The Gators were in fifth place
heading into the final round of
play but inched their way to
fourth after shooting their best
combined total of the tournament
at 297 (9 over) in the third round.
After carding a 1-over-par
73 and leading the team in the
first round, sophomore Whitney
Myers sank three birdies in the
third round and maintained her
lead to finish the tournament tied
for 13th place at 225 (9 over).
Sophomore Sandra Gal, who
leads the team in stroke aver-
age, trailed Myers by one stroke


to tie for 15th place at 226. She
recorded UF's only under-par
round in the tournament with a
1-under-par 71 in the third.
Redshirt sophomore Ornella
Jouven led the
team in the sec-
ond round with
a 3-over-par 75
and finished
tied for 26th
place at 229 (13
over).
Briles-Hinton over c
After card-
ing a 10-over-par 82 in the sec-
ond round, sophomore captain
Tiffany Chudy persevered in


the third by hitting par her first
nine holes to shoot a 1-over-par
73. She wound up tying for 35th
place with a 15-over-par 231.
Despite improving her scores
each day, freshman Mallory
Blackwelder struggled on the
course from the beginning when
she quadruple-bogeyed. her
first hole of the tournament.
Throughout her three rounds of
play, she bogeyed 16 holes and
double-bogeyed another five to
finish with a 242 (26 over).
Briles-Hinton said she was
happy that the team competed
in the Central Regional because
it was a great way to gear up
for the NCAA Championship,


which will be held at Ohio State
University's Scarlet Golf Course
in Columbus, Ohio, beginning
May 23.
"The tournament we played
was a Jack Nicholas design,"
she said, "and the championship
will also be a Nicholas design, so
we'll be more prepared.
"We coach all year for postsea-
son play. In the fall, we'rq learn-
ing about course management
and new shots. In the spring,
you learn tournament golf. That
way we try to get them to peak
around postseason play. Once the
team gets older and more experi-
enced, because we have a young
team, that'll get easier."


CLASSIC STOR

'Chokers' no more, UF wins first national title


Editor's note: The following is a classic
UF sports story highlighting the Alligator's
100 years of publication It originally ran
on May 16, 1992.

Alligator Archive

After five straight years of trying but
missing, the UF women's tennis team won
its first NCAA Outdoor Championship,
defeating the University of Texas 5-3 in the
finals Sunday in Palo Alto, Calif.
UF's Kristin Osmond added a come-
from-behind victory against Carla Cossa
1-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-2), to singles victories
by Lisa Raymond, Holly Lloyd and Jill
Brenner to give the Gators a 4-2 lead going
into doubles.
"I knew that my match was the differ-
ence between us leading 4-2 or being tied
3-3," Osmond told the media. "When she


had those two match points I was nervous,
but once I got those two I knew I could
do it. After that I thought it was my turn
now."
Osmond came through again in dou-
bles. Treamed with Erkia Kuttler, Osmond
sealed the win by defeating Ashley
Johnson and Jakie Moe 6-1, 6-3.
The championship capped off a perfect
season for the Gators, who finished 30-0.
To face Texas in the finals, UF defeated
Southern California 5-0, then faced UCLA
in the quarterfinals, a rematch of last
year's semifinals match in which Texas
gave UF its only loss of the season. The
Gators got their revenge with a 5-0 sweep.
Then in the semifinals, UF defeated Duke
5-1 and Texas upset host Stanford, prevent-
ing the Gators from attempting to avenge
three finals losses to Stanford in 1990,
1988 and 1987. Prior to UF's champion-
ship, Stanford had won the NCAA Tennis


"Even people pulling for us to win
kept telling us, 'Don't pull a Gator
choke.' ...I think we've definitely
broken that stigma now."
Holly Lloyd
UF golfer.

Championships six years straight.
By winning the tournament, the Gators
left behind the label of "chokers" they
earned with eight trips to the NCAA
Tennis Championships in nine years, with
nothing to show for it.
"I really think winning the first time
is the hardest," senior Holly Lloyd said.
"It's funny. Even people pulling for
us to win kept telling us, 'Don't pull
a Gator choke.' People in my classes
would come up to me and say that.


"I think we've definitely broken that
stigma now."
The NCAA championship was a first
for UF's women's tennis team. It was
the first for UF coach Andy Brandi too,
who had seven Southeastern Conference
championships and two National Indoor
Team championships but no NCAA Tennis
championship until this year.
"It's so nice to get that monkey off our
backs," Brandi said. "The last six years
we've lost in either the final or semifinal.
When that happens you start to question if
you're good enough to achieve what this
bunch has done."
Brandi hopes the Gators' success con-
tinues in the 64-entry NCAA singles com-
petition, which began Monday. Raymond,
Lloyd, Kay Louthian, Kuttler and Brenner
will compete for the Gators. Shaun
Stafford won UF's only NCAA singles
championship in 1988.


Gators blanked by Vols


BUF STILL EARNED THE RIGHT TO
HOST AN NCAA REGIONAL TOURNA-
MENT.

By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Staff Writer
cwhite@alligator.org

The Gators fell behind early' on
Thursday at the Southeastern Conference
Tournament and took an early exit after a
tough loss to No. 5 Tennessee.
The Vols (51-9) capitalized on a UF error
for two runs on three hits in the first inning
Thursday and then managed to keep the
Gators off the scoreboard for the rest df
the game.
UF pitcher Stacey Stevens started but
was replaced after she gave up five runs in
the first three innings. Replacement Stacey
Nelson held off the Vols until a sixth-inning
Tennessee hit brought in freshman second
baseman Liane Horiuchi for a 6-0 win.
UF managed only two hits in the game
- one in the first and another in the sixth
- while the Vols tallied four earned runs
on their eight hits.
Tennessee went on to defeat Alabama
on Friday and LSU on Saturday to claim
its first SEC Tournament win in school


.history.
The Gators left without a title, but didn't
come home empty handed.
The team left with an edge after facing
the No. 5 team in college softball, fresh-
man outfielder Kim Waleszonia said.
"We played a really good team, and I think
that was good because we got some really
tough competition in there."
Now, as the Gators prepare to host an
NCAA regional tournament, their focus is
on what they were able to take away from a
one-and-out SEC showing.
"I'm concerned with their
Ga lnos5 mental approach," UF coach
5 C F~ I Tim Walton said. "You want
to make sure they're in the
here and now, and get a
pulse on where we're at. And I guarantee
that they are going to live in the moment
now."
Senior catcher Kristen Butler said the
16th-seeded Gators are ready to put the
SEC Tournament behind them and face the
regional meet, which ultimately decides
which teams advance to the NCAA super
regionals and the national championships.
"If you don't want the pressure, you
shouldn't be playing at this level," she
said. "This level is all about who's going to
finish on top."

be able to win at every spot. I think we
can do that with this team."
Suvak, who has won 16 straight
singles matches, said every match is a
team effort and it doesn't matter who
completes a match, just as long as the
team wins. Suvak also said the Gators
aren't worried about taking their game
out west.
"We just proved that we are ready
to play out at Stanford," Suvak said
after defeating USE "We are all really
excited to get back on the road again."
The Gators will play UCLA on
Thursday at 3 p.m. at Stanford's Taube
Family Tennis Stadium. If UF ad-
vances, the team will play the winner
of fifth-seeded Baylor and 12th seeded
Vanderbilt.

BALOGH HONORED: UF tennis
coach Dave Balogh was named the
Intercollegiate Tennis Association
South Region Women's Tennis
Assistant Coach of the Year on Monday.
Balogh, who is in his sixth year as a


coach with the Gators, became a final-
ist for the national award, which will
be announced on May 22.

MEN'S TENNIS: The UF men's tennis
team was one of three teams who
didn't host a regional to advance
to the Round of 16 in the NCAA
Tournament.
The Gators (17-7) defeated 15th-
seeded Oklahoma State 4-0 on Sunday
in Stillwater, Okla.
The Gators are peaking at the right
time, as they have won eight of their
last nine matches.
"It is the best match we played
all year at the biggest moment," UF
coach Andy Jackson said. "I feel for
Oklahoma State because we played
well.
"We are very excited to go to the
Round of 16 and get the monkey off of
our back. We will see if we can play a
little better out there."
The Gators will play second-seeded
Pepperdine at 1 p.m. on Saturday at
Taube South in Stanford.
If UF advances, the Gators will play
the winner of seventh-seeded Illinois
and 10th-seeded UCLA.

West Coast awaits Gators


By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

The Gators are going to have to
break their routine.
After defeating South Florida 4-
0 on Saturday in the second round
of the NCAA Tournament, the UF
women's tennis team left the com-
fort of Gainesville on Monday for
the first time in over a month.
The Gators (23-1) traveled almost
3,000 miles to Stanford, Calif., to be
one of 16 teams to play on college


tennis' biggest stage.
But even though the Gators
haven't seen Stanford, Notre Dame
or Southern California the top
three seeds, respec-
tively UF coach
Roland Thornqvist
isn't concerned.
TenniS "I think that we
are battle-tested
enough," Thorqvist said. "Frankly,
I think teams should be afraid of us
and not the other way around."
The Gators defeated Stanford
4-0 in about 90 minutes Friday


before blanking USF on Saturday.
UF hasn't lost a set in the post-
season, let alone a team point.
The bottom half of the lineup,
Boglarka Berecz, Nina Suvak and
Alex Liles, clinched the win for the
Gators on Saturday. It was the first
time all season the Gators didn't
complete a match at one of the top
three spots.
"If you are going to win it all,
you have to be good one through
six," Thornqvist said. "You need to

'Bama quashes


UF's SEC hopes

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

After showing signs of life with a 4-3 win against No.
8 Alabama (36-17, 17-10 Southeastern Conference) Friday,
the UF baseball team floundered once again as the week-
end bore on.
An 8-4 loss to the Tide on Sunday, on the heels of a 7-2
defeat Saturday, was the final straw for the Gators (26-27,
8-19 SEC), mathematically eliminating the club from a
berth in the SEC Tournament.
"Today is obviously very disappointing after a great
victory on Friday night," UF coach Pat McMahon said.
"We were really excited about coming out today. That's
been going on all year guys with effort and trying
hard, but just not getting it done and obviously we didn't
today."
In what has been something of a Sunday pattern for
the squad this season, UF fell behind quickly. Alabama's
Emeel Salem singled in the leadoff spot, and one batter
later, Alex Avila homered to right field to put the Tide up
by an early pair.
UF responded with some unorthodox offense in the
second, when junior center fielder Gavin Dickey picked
up a run despite the team failing to register a hit. Dickey
was hit by a pitch, reached second on a fielder's choice
and finally hustled across the plate on an infield error.
Still, the Gators were unable to capitalize on any mo-
mentum Dickey may have created, as the Tide exploded
in the third. Salem reached first on a fielder's choice,
stole second, reached third on an error and then walked
across the plate for the second time of the game on a balk.
The Tide added a sacrifice fly, a single and back-to-back
doubles to extend their lead to 6-1.
McMahon tagged the error as particularly damaging.
"We talk about winning or losing the freebie war, and
we give them away," he said. "Freebies are errors, walks,

Lack of leadership, production sink team with once-high expectations


N body saw this coming.
As the Texas Longhorns record-
ed the final out against the Gators
in the College World Series a year ago, a na-
tional baseball writer turned to me and said,
"See you next year."
I agreed with his optimism that UF would
return to Omaha.
Instead, the Gators will not even play in
Hoover, Ala.
UF will play its final regular season
games.this weekend against LSU after being


eliminated from the Southeastern Conference
Tournament at Hoover Metropolitan
Stadium.
Nobody could foresee such a dramatic re-
versal of fortune.
It was understandable that some players
might feel the need to impress scouts, and
some might have trouble coming down from
the best season in UF history. Some observ-
ers have claimed that apathy has infected the
team, but I suspect the downfall is the result of
a lack of leadership and unity.


Perhaps the most
difficult thing to under-
stand is how the Gators
could finish the season
with a losing overall
record.
Tim Casey The Gators sub-
Casey at the Bat traced four graduating
tcasey@alligator.org seniors, two juniors
that departed for pro-
fessional baseball and three players lost to in-
jury prior to the season. But the Gators gained


freshmen and promising transfers, and the
2006 team appeared to have a greater sum of
talent than the 2005 SEC champions who were
18 outs from a national championship.
In short, expectations were high.
The four major polls had the Gators ranked
No. 1 or No. 2 for the first three weeks of the
season. Many fans brought their football men-
tality to the ballpark, buying nearly all of the
reserved-seat season tickets.
Players and coaches also had high expecta-
