Library West opening date pushed back


* OFFICIALS RECENTLY SAID THE
LIBRARY WOULD REOPEN TODAY.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer

Two weeks after officials promised a
speedy reopening for Library West, the
doors on UF's largest library are still
sealed shut.-


Though the building was scheduled to
reopen today, Library West is now set to
stay closed until later this month, said Bill
Covey, interim director of Library Support
Services.
Covey did not specify an exact open-
ing date, but said that the delays are not
expected to affect the project's $30 million
budget.
The opening date was postponed due to
delays in furniture delivery, equipment re-


"They're doing fantastically quick
work."

'UF spokeswoman

pair and other issues, said Barbara Hood,
a UF spokeswoman.
The building is also waiting for some
chairs, plasma screen monitors and com-
puters, she said.


Workers have moved two floors of the
library's books into the new building, but
Hood said it would take two weeks to fin-
ish moving the rest of the collection.
"They're doing fantastically quick
work," she said.
Although an opening date has not been
determined, Hood said students can start
using the Library West book drop on the
building's east side.
The library closed in December 2003.

Sas Smith outlines bid


Before kicking off his campaign, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rod Smith talks with Bri-
anna Watson, 4, about the sticker she is wearing on her back.


By VINCENT M. MASSARO
Alligator Contributing Writer

As State Sen. Rod Smith stepped
away from a canopy of umbrellas and
up to a wet microphone in a downpour
of rain and applause Monday evening,
he promised the crowd of 200 one thing:
"I'm going to be real brief."
He wasted no time and was quick
to introduce his family, touch on.a few
policy talking points and thank his
hardworking supporters in a two-min-
ute speech.
Wind, rain, thunder and lightening
did little to quell the enthusiasm of his
supporters, who came out from under
the roof of the Downtown Community
Plaza stage with umbrellas in hand to
listen to the man of the hour.
Smith is one of two Democratic
candidates for Florida's governor
who qualified Monday afternoon in
Tallahassee. U.S. Rep. Jim Davis is also


running in the Democratic primary
Republican candidates for governor
are Florida Attorney General Charlie
Crist and Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer.
. The four men are vying to replace
Gov. Jeb Bush, a Republican who must
leave office due to term limits.

S2006 Gainesville kicked off
a 15-stop statewide
tour that will last until Thursday night.
After his speech, a sea of umbrellas
scrambled to meet Smith, who was
busy shaking eager, wet hands.
Chuck Berry's oldie "Johnny B.
Goode" was played by Southern
Justice, a local, five-man band.
Among the crowd were about 15 lo-
cal public officials.

SPECIAL REPORT

Drill team disbanded after found DVD causes concern


By MINDY MORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

An acclaimed student organization was
disbanded abruptly and quietly in May after
a questionable DVD depicting the group
training its new members was found in
April.
As of May 19, the Billy Mitchell Drill
Team is no longer a recognized organization
at UF.


Assistant Dean of Students Ken Gassiot
did not use the term "hazing" to describe the
events on the DVD. Instead he said that the
drill team's faculty adviser felt that "some
unhealthy things were going on here."
According to Gassiot, the investigation
began when Chris Cupoli, the director
of student involvement, found the DVD
and turned it over to the Dean of Students
Office.
Cupoli found the DVD in the gutter on


his walk to the Reitz Union from a sport-
ing event. He does not
remember whether it was
Sa baseball. or basketball
Si game, but knows he was
somewhere near Van
Fleet Hall, which is where
ROTC is headquartered.
--It was a miniature red
Gassiot DVD of the same type that
is used for the Gator Growl pep rally, Cupoli


said. So he picked it up and took it back to
his office.
Cupoli said that he does not remember
when he found the DVD but that it must
'have been sometime after Spring Break,
because he wondered if maybe it was some-
one's Spring Break videos and was not sure
he wanted to see that.
The DVD sat in Cupoli's office for a few
weeks until one day he decided to see what

Popular Gainesville eatery
robbed by gun-toting man
A man carrying a handgun
entered the California Chicken
Grill restaurant, 2124 SW 34th St.,
just after midnight on Friday and
demanded money.
Cashier Lauren Glover was or-
dered to put money from the cash
register into the suspect's bag. He
then demanded that Glover give
him her own money.
The suspect made Glover tell
the other employees in the store to
get on the ground with their hands

the incident occurred.
No one was injured.

UF student trapped in Lebanon as violence in Middle East worsens


By SANAM DOLATSHAHI
Alligator Contributing Writer

The conflict in the Middle East is not only
hitting Americans at the gas pump; the vio-
lence is also affecting some UF students.
Amira, a Lebanese pharmacy student at
UF, went to Lebanon for Summer break and
is now stuck in the conflicted area. Amira's
friends did not provide her last name.
"I don't know when she can come back
to Gainesville," said Diala Dandach, Amira's
friend and a Lebanese building construction
student at UF.
The Lebanese borders are dosed, and com-
munication is difficult, Dandach said.
She has to call home at least 10 times a day
to reach her family, because the landlines are
damaged.
"When you don't get lucky to talk to your
family, you really start to worry," she said.
Dandach reads the news constantly


through the Web site Tayyar.org, which up-
dates every three minutes with the news about
the crisis. She cannot concentrate to study and
complete her assignments.
"You don't know what is happening next.
I sleep at 3 a.m., when it's-10 a.m. at Beirut.
When I wake up at 9 a.m., so many things
have happened back there. Its really frustrat-
ing," Dandach said.
Her parents and siblings live in Beirut.
When her 22-year-old brother went out to buy
groceries, the bombings started. He had to re-
turn home with an empty basket.
"They are bombing everywhere. When the
North was bombarded, I had to call my friend
who lives there to make sure she's fine. We
keep calling everybody," she said.
SHare'l Amir, an Israeli political science and
philosophy student at UF, calls his relatives
in Israel every day to make sure everything
is OK.
His relatives live near the Gaza Strip and


are relatively safer in the South, away from the
Lebanese border, Amir said.
It's not the kind of war you see Americans
fight, but it might soon escalate into such a
war, he said.
In case of an emergency, Amir will go
back to Israel to join the army and defend his
country.
"If we have to go back because of
war, it will be for a long time, and
we won't be able to come back to
school."
Hare'l Amir
UF political science and philosophy student

"If we have to go back because of war, it
will be for a long time, and we won't be able to
come back to school," he said.
Amir works at UF's English Language


Institute and has many Arab friends there.
"You don't want to talk about these issues
(with them). The emotions will go up, espe-
cially with friends. You don't want to alienate
each other," he said.
He watches the news through Israeli satel-
lite channels continuously to get the updates.
S"The U.S. media try to make stories out
of something dear-cut. Its biased. It doesn't
show everything. The Israeli channels are
more accurate," Amir said.
Hicham Elzabadani, a Lebanese computer
science doctoral candidate at UF, watches the
news through Arab satellite channels.
"The media here are not taking a neutral
position," he said. "They are pro-Israel."
Elzabadani, whose parents, brother and
three sisters live in Beirut, watches the televi-
sion 15 hours a day. He said world govern-
ments should help stop the killing of civilians.
"If they don't do anything about this, it
means they are partners to this."

Somber ceremony for Israel's supporters draws on prayers, firsthand accounts


By BRITTANY BOUFFARD
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than 120 people sat motionless Friday night, listen-
ing with reverence as a rabbi and a solider recounted stories
of bombs and prayers for love.
Jewish students and Gainesville residents united for


peace at the Lubavitch Jewish Center, which hosted a special
service that evening to pray for Israeli safety.
Rabbi Berl Goldman, director of the center, organized
"Crisis in the Holy Land: A Call to Action" in response to
the recent surge of violence between Israel and the Lebanese
militia group Hezbollah.
"We're all watching with great concern this event in the

Lubavitch Jewish Center on Friday evening.


Middle East, particularly Israel," Goldman said. "The hostil-
ity has excelled, and it's continuing to escalate to a degree
no one wants."
He said Israel would do anything to bring peace, even if
that means taking "unilateral steps" that involve violence.
Though he hopes other nations will aid in eliminating the
terrorist threat, he said Israel must protect its people and its
borders.
Americans can help support Israel's goals through good-
will, Goldman said.
"Everyone wants to do something over here,", he said.
"The way to respond is with prayer, acts of kindness and
good deeds."
As part of Friday's service, Hilla Viener, a UF student and
former Israeli Defense Forces soldier, asked her husband
David to read a speech she wrote about her experiences in
Israel.
Viener was too emotional to read the speech herself.
When she was a resident of Israel, terrorists killed 10 of
her friends.
"Wherever we stand, we will always be behind Israel in
our hearts, minds and prayers," her husband said.
-With about 6,500 Jewish students, UF has a larger Jewish
population than any other public university in the country.
Many students are worried about the rising conflict in the re-
gion. Some have relatives in the country, while others know
friends studying abroad.
"My aunts and uncles are worried about cousins," said
Lior Hirsch, a UF senior whose family is from Israel. "A lot
of the people there are used to this, unfortunately."
Israel warns its citizens to avoid public transporta-
tion and specific dangerous areas, said Kim Jacobs, a UF
graduate who traveled to Israel in June before the fighting
erupted.
"They're just going to keep living their lives," she said
of Israelis. "They're obviously freaked out. I can't imagine
what they're feeling."
She felt safe in the country, she said, and was surprised
by the violence when she returned home.
"I turned on the TV and saw Haifa and went, 'Oh my
God,'" she said.

University updates


logo, removes seal


* HAPPENSTANCE *


* SOME STREAMLINED
LOGOS INCLUDE UF SLOGAN.

By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Writer

UF is looking to freshen up its
image this Summer with a new logo
that cost about $2,500 to create.
The new design, which features
a monogram of UF's initials in place
of the university seal, was unveiled
Monday and will be used on cam-
pus and in UF advertising. Some
forms of the logo will include the
university marketing slogan "The
Foundation for The Gator Nation."
For the past 10 years, UF's logo
featured the university seal, which
looked like the image on the Florida
state flag. Joe Hice, an associate vice
president for marketing and public
relations, said the seal could be hard
to see and use in special designs.
"It just seemed to make sense
to take that seal that's very com-
plicated and kind of look and do a
monogram with UF," Hice said.
The monogrammed look was
not the only image considered for
UF's new logo. Other design choices
included some with UF's Century
Tower and one with an alligator
symbol.
But UF's University Relations
department wanted to use a simple
logo with fewer design elements.
The new signature is supposed to
be based on how people view the
university, Iice said.
When people ask Hice where he
works, he said, he always responds
with "either 'at the University of
Florida' or 'I work at UE"
The logo will be printed on


business cards, university signs,
vehicles, letterheads and envelopes.
It will also appear in the university's
publications and -print and televi-
sion ads.
But Hice added that university
employees will not have to buy new
stationary with the logo until they
run out of older supplies.
William McKeen, chairman of
UF's journalism department, said he
preferred the old logo and thought it
had a "distinctive" design.
"I'm just not sure that the uni-
versity logo or that kind of iden-
tity needs to be changed," he said.
"There could always be more vis-
ibility. I think I'd focus more on what
we have, as opposed to changing the
look and confusing our identity."
McKeen specifically did not like
the UF monogram in the logo.
Officials began promoting the
logo Monday, when workers re-
placed of one of the university's
entrance signs with a new one
featuring the signature. UF staff
and faculty also received packets
Monday about how to use the logo.
UF's old seal will still be used on
diplomas and other official docu-
ments.
UF graduate studentJohn Wright
said he liked the old logo better be-
cause he thought it looked more
professional.
"The seal is on the old one, while
the new one doesn't really have the
seal at all," Wright said.
But Hice is confident UF's new
look will have broad appeal.
"I'm sure there are going to be
people who miss the seal, but at the
same time I think that the response
we've had has been very good," he
said.

Tough cell

Anticipated Bush veto

defies rationality
S o it's finally come to this.
After keeping his no-veto streak alive for nearly five
and a half years, President Bush finally stands poised to
shoot down some legislation, pending its passage from the
Senate later today.
And it's about time. After all, the last president to go this
long without a veto was Thomas Jefferson.
But it's a shame that after all the garbage that's come out
of Congress, the historic veto will fall on a bill that would
actually be worthwhile easing restrictions on funding for
stem cell research.
In 2001, President Bush limited federal funding to 78 pre-
existing embryonic stem cell lines, but many scientists now
call those lines insufficient for further progress in the field.
The legislation at hand, which has already passed the House,
would loosen the 2001 restrictions, allowing federal funds to
be spent on other lines."
And that's good, since embryonic stem cells may hold
the key to eliminating many debilitating ailments, like
Parkinson's disease, diabetes and cancer. The U.S. could be
an early leader in the field, spearheading a global push for
research, to the betterment of all mankind.
President Bush, however, remains unswayed.
"The use of federal money, the taxpayers' money to pro-
mote science which destroys life in order to save life I'm
against that. And therefore, if the bill does that, I will veto it,"
he recently told Congress.
That's the problem. The only way scientists can use em-
bryonic stem cells is by destroying embryos. To some, that
seems unethical.
But here's the thing: The legislation would only allow the
use of embryos that would otherwise be tossed out. Those
embryos are leftovers from in vitro fertilization procedures
and aren't much use to anybody except stem cell research-
ers.
So we figure that if they're going to be getting rid of them
anyway, researchers might as well get some good out of
them.
In light of this, Sen. Arlen Specter proclaimed that, "There
is just no sensible, logical reason why we would not make
use of stem cell research." And he's right.
Because the bill makes so much sense, it has garnered
some unlikely support like that of Sen. Bill Frist, who
supported the President's original 2001 restrictions. Of
course, we're certain that Sen. Frist's support has nothing to
do with the fact that he's planning a bid for the presidency
in 2008 and that, according to the BBC, nearly two-thirds of
Americans support increased stem cell research.
But that doesn't mean President Bush won't stick to his
guns. As it stands now, the bill is expected to pass the Senate
today, get vetoed tomorrow, and then head back to Congress,
where it will be unable to garner the necessary two-thirds
of votes from each house. And all of that is expected to be
wrapped up by Thursday.
If that seems like a short political life span for an issue, it
is. Perhaps instead of debating inanities like the flag-Burning
amendment and the federal marriage amendment, Congress
could've been turning the national spotlight on something
that might someday actually affect Americans on a day-to-
day level.
But with all the manipulations given to election year poli-
tics, sometimes even that's too much to ask.

Alligator was insensitive with Solich story
Editor: Michael Solich was a remarkable,
bright and promising young man. However,
in a premature story printed on July 13, the
Alligator chose to focus on the possibility
that alcohol may have been involved in the
tragedy. Without waiting for a medical report
or any conclusive evidence, and following in
the footsteps of an equally premature article
in The Gainesville Sun, the Alligator has at-
tempted to create sensationalism instead of
journalism. In short, the Alligator has missed
the big story.
Less than an hour after leaving Michael's
funeral, I received acall from Alligator writer
Vincent Massaro asking me to comment on
whether or not Michael liked to party and
whether or not I knew anybody who partied
with him. While I support a newspaper's
First Amendment rights, the questions and
timing were insensitive. This is not the story,"
as it makes no difference in who Michael was
or what he accomplished in his short life.
Michael Solich was a person who made
an impact on whomever had the honor of


being a part of his life: This is evident in
the two scholarships that have already been
established in his name for future teachers.
Michael helped support and guide his class-
mates as they earned their master's degrees
in the ProTeach program, many of whom
have commented that they would not have
completed the program if it had not been
for Michael's support. As his internship su-
pervisor, I had the pleasure of working with
Michael in the classroom and was able to wit-
ness firsthand what kind of impact he had on
young learners. Michael was a son, brother,
cousin and friend a person who mattered
and whose death has left a hole in the hearts
of many.

U.S. must stand firm against North Korea
Editor: Columnist Matt Nobles is truly a
foreign policy visionary. His conclusion that


the United States and other interested parties
should wait for Kim Jong 11 to "milk his 15
minutes of glory" is both imaginative and
farsighted. Of course the idea of doing noth-
ing isn't new to foreign policy; in fact, British
Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain used it
to great effect in 1938. Oh wait, that didn't
work, and 62 million people died fighting the
largest war in the history of mankind.
Nobles puts forth the theory that the latest
missile tests are merely Kim Jong Il's (success-
ful) attempt to garner world attention. I sup-
pose when he ignored the deal he had made
with Clinton in 1994 and withdrew North
Korea from the Nuclear Nonproliferation
Treaty in 2003, after admitting to having
nuclear weapons, he was also just "desper-
ately clamoring for the world's attention."
Of course, it could be something else. Maybe
the despot is looking for yet another lucrative
deal in order to not test more missiles. Does
this remind you of anyone? The bully in third
grade separating kids from their lunch mon-
ey in exchange for his not stuffing them into
a locker comes to mind. Following Nobles'


TUESDAY, JULY 18, 2006 E ALLIGATOR, 7


logic, teachers should wait for the bully to
grow out of his attention-getting phase.
Kim Jong I is no child. He is a brutal des-
pot, reigning callously over a dying country.
Though concerned with human rights abuses,
the United States and South Korea still donate
tens of thousands of tons of food each year to
North Korea, as does Japan. Despite their best
efforts, Amnesty International reports that
starvation and malnutrition are widespread in
North Korea. All the while, North Korea under
Kim Jong I continues to invest an estimated 20
to 25 percent of its gross national product in
the military. Nobles wants us to "work toward
a world of democracy and universal freedom"
with a country like this?
The United States, Japan and South Korea
must stand firm. Compromise cannot be
an option with North Korea. The Korean
Peninsula has long been a site of conflict, but
if North Korea is allowed to continue on its
current path, the conflicts of yesterday will
pale in comparison to those of tomorrow.

Dean says 'aloha' to new students at block party


By MINDY MORRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

People escaped the heat by duck-
ing into the Institute of Hispanic-
Latino Cultures for cold drinks
Thursday afternoon. They slurped
dripping sno-cones while watching
hula dancers perform outside. They
spooned melted ice cream from the
plates of cake served at the Institute


of Black Culture.
Dean Gene's Block Party was
hot.
From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday,
students wearing colorful plastic
leis meandered amid the booths
scattered across the lawn between
the Institute of Hispanic-Latino
Cultures and the Institute of Black
Culture. Shaded by tents, the booths
proudly displayed the different


organizations the Dean of Students
Office offers.
The Disability Resource Center
handed out brochures -about its
services. Off-Campus Life gave out
books providing helpful hints on
everything from budgeting money
to city guidelines for throwing a
party. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs handed out
pins and condoms with its fliers.

Robert Lasley/ Alliagtor
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski jokes with dancers Anita Johnson, left, and Loida Bolinao, right, out-
side La Casita during Dean Gene's Block Party on Thursday afternoon.


The Institute of Hispanic-Latino
Cultures, known to many students
as "La Casita," blasted Crompa and
Haitian music.
Ellen Kostewicz, secretary of
La Casita, had selected the music
specifically to fit the island-themed
party. BET played loudly from in-
side the Institute of Black Cultures.
Students sat on couches around
the TV to eat cake and ice cream,
and some even worked to finish
homework.
"These places are meant to serve
as a home away from home for stu-
dents," said Leticia Martinez, the
director of La Casita. "Everyone is
welcome. It doesn't matter what
their ethnicity is."
When most students think of the
Dean of Students Office they think
of Judicial Affairs. Dean Gene's
Block Party was an effort to help
students realize that it has much
more to offer than discipline.
"When people come into UF, their
perception of the Dean of Students
Office is only Preview and Judicial
Affairs," said Associate Dean of
Students Mary Kay Schneider.
"We want to show them all of
the other good things we offer,"
Schneider added.
When freshman Heather Byers,
18, first arrived at the block party
she said she really didn't know what
the Dean of Students Office did.
After spending an hour checking
out information at different booths,
her view was clearer.
"They are here to help students
in every way," Byers said. "Besides
just academics."


"It is geared mostly toward
Summer B students," Dean of
Students Gene Zdziarski said.
"Many of them are wandering
around right now realizing that they
have more time on their hands than
they were expecting. We want to
offer them something to fill up that
time."
For many students, the block
party also served as a way to meet
new people. Heba AL Abdulwahid,
18, moved to the U.S. from Saudi
Arabia about four months ago to
study engineering.
"This is a good place to find
new information
i about a new cul-
ture," she said.
"Also to make
2 new friends and
] practice my
English."
S '-i About 75 stu-
Sdents visited the
Zdziarski block party. At
around 3:30 ,the crowd thickened
on the perch of La Casita as two
Filipino women, clad in bright sa-
rongs and leis, began hula dancing.
"I was afraid there might be a car
accident," Leticia Martinez said to
the dancers after their performance.
"Everyone was, watching you, not
the road."
This was the first time the Dean
of Students Office held a block party.
But after the success of this one, it
will have to look into having more
of them, said Angelica Rodriguez, a
staff member at La Casita.
"Maybe next year we can get a
pool."


New reality swamps city


By KIM CRUTS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville's newest television pro-
ducers are on a mission to prove that
UF's social scene extends beyond that
of a drinking school with a football
problem.
"GTV: Gainesville Television," a half-
hour show about Gainesville nightlife
set to premiere this Fall, aims to show-
case local culture outside of clubbing.
"We don't want a bunch of kids with
a personal, handheld recorder asking
girls to take their tops off," said Jeremy
Waks, a UF environmental science senior
and one GTV's producers.
Waks, along with UF alumnus Mike
Scott, is hoping the program will help
UF students discover new ways to spend
their evenings and provide insight about
lesser-known areas of Gainesville.
The show will follow a small group
of students through an evening in
Gainesville as they visit museums, art
shows and open-mike nights.
"I want to find people I've never met
before, follow them around, see what
they do," Waks said.
GTV hopes to give Gainesville a posi-
tive image, give students more social
options and fill a role for marketers that
has been largely ignored, Waks said.
"This is a niche that doesn't exist
right now," he said.
Companies can work with GTV to


bring the show to their facilities, which
would increase exposure for businesses
and allow patrons to attend events
where GTV is filming.
The students selected to participate
on the program will be groomed for an
evening on the town, with hairstyling,
makeup and a new wardrobe.
"We don't want a bunch of kids
with a personal, handheld re-
corder asking girls to take their
tops off."
Jeremy Waks
GTV's co-producer

Students will be allowed to keep any
clothes they wear on the show. GTV is in
the process of signing contracts with lo-
cal companies to provide these services.
On July 24 and 25, GTV will be hold-
ing a casting call at Fat Tuesday from 3
p.m. to 8 p.m. to find a female host for
the show. The ideal candidate should
be charismatic, energetic and have good
interviewing skills, Waks said. She does
not, however, have to be the biggest par-
tier in Gainesville.
"We don't need someone who's an
alcoholic and parties every night," he
said.
The show will begin filming im-
mediately following the casting call,
Waks said, and will be airing on either
Channel 21 or Channel 8 this Fall.


Man dies after local party


* TAMPA MAN REMAINS IN JAIL
FOR FELONY BATTERY.

By JAMES RIGNEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Five Gainesville residents, including
two UF students, are worried about re-
taliation after a fight at their house left one
person dead and another in jail Saturday.
Lucas Young, 24, was admitted to
Shands at UF with life-threatening in-
juries Saturday morning and later pro-
nounced dead.
Nathan J. Smith, a 19-year-old win-
dow washer from Tampa, was arrested on
charges of felony battery that evening.
The fight happened during a party
at 3232 SW 42nd Place at about 2:30
Saturday morning, according to a police
report.
"I didn't even know these kids, and I
wish they never even came," one of the
house residents said. The three residents
interviewed declined to give their names,
citing fear of retaliation.
After Young yelled at Smith, the two
were told to take their dispute outside,
where other people soon joined in on the
fight.
"Lucas yelled at (Smith) about fighting
one-on-one," one of the residents said.
"Then they went at it on the street."
The residents said someone yelled
something about guns, but they did not


believe any guns were actually present.
However, one of the roommates was at-
tacked, and another had a bottle broken
over his head.
The residents said the fight took place
off their property, and they do not want
to face any problems stemming from the
incident.
Gainesville Police spokesman Sgt. Art
Adkins said there were only two people
left at the scene when police officers ar-
rived early Saturday morning.
Officers were dis-
Public patched a few hours later
q .-?'* to Shands, where they
discovered that Young
had sustained critical in-
juries during the fight.
Adkins said that the investigation is
still ongoing and the cause of death is yet
to be determined.
Smith was arrested a few blocks away
from the scene of the fight later that
Saturday. He was identified by a photo
lineup, according to police reports.
Residents of the house said a few
members of the Gators football team were
present at the party, but none of them
were involved in the fight.
But one of the residents said he does
not believe blame should fall entirely on
Smith, because several other people were
involved in the incident.
"I really don't think it was (Smith's)
fault," he said. "He didn't kill (Young).
Two other guys did."

'Royal' feast as fraternity ends week of festivities


By JESSE HETTIG
Alligator Contributing Writer

On Saturday, a UF fraternity
invited a few of its brothers from
other chapters for a barbecue at the
Alachua County Fairgrounds. The
result was an afternoon party with
about 2,000 guests, dancing and
home-cooked food for all.


UF's chapter of Phi Beta Sigma
Fraternity hosted the fraternity's
24th annual Blue & White Weekend.
Saturday's Royal Family Reunion
Picnic was the culmination of a week
of festivities held in Gainesville.
At 12:30 p.m., vehicles were roll-
ing into the parking lot beside the
fairgrounds' pavilion. Sport utility
vehicles on 24-inch rims, tinted-out
/


coupes and beat-up jalopies lucky
just to have survived the long drive
all arrived bearing plates from
across the country. Chapters were
represented from Georgia, Texas,
New Jersey and Minnesota, among
other states.
The event was organized by UF
Phi Beta Sigma President Samuel
Green, a UF junior, and his fellow

fraternity members.
"We were prepared to feed about
1,500 people," Green said.
However, he estimated that there
were more than 2,000 attendees at
around 2:30 p.m.
Guests lined up for a spread
that included shrimp, ribs, chicken,
beans and grilled corn.
At the other end of the shelter,
the music bumped as chapters pre-
sented their party line, a synchro-
nized group dance, to the audience.
Kicking up sawdust and sweltering
in the North Florida heat, spirits
were high as long-distance friends
reconnected for the first time since
last year's event.
Representatives from Zeta Phi
Beta, the fraternity's sister organiza-
tion, were alsb on hand.
Jasmin Daniels, a UF alumna
now working for Philip Morris USA
in Tampa, returned to Gainesville
for the tradition. Her fiance, Toby,
who made the 9.5 hour drive from
Jackson, Miss., accompanied her.
The couple met at the 2005 event
and, through telephone chats and
periodic visits, decided to marry.
Daniels arrived with Kristen
Carey, a UF alumna now working
in Jacksonville. Carey related how
the event also works as an introduc-
tion to Greek life for UF freshmen.
Carey first attended in the Summer
B semester of 1999.
She was impressed by the wide
range of events held throughout
the week, which this year included
a Sunday night Gospel Explosion
church service, sex education lec-
tures, a game night and community


service.
"That's what drew us in," Carey
said.
The week is a highlight of the
summer for fraternity and sorority
members around the country.
Daniels and Carey said the car
ride home is often spent in discus-
sion about how each guest would
design the next year's festivities.
The Washington, D.C., head-
quarters of the fraternity sent its
financial manager, Wayne K. Green,
to promote merchandise and the
brotherhood's Web site.
Greek Green, who said he
was "overwhelmed by
the heat," was pleased
with the positive experience of the
picnic.
While the influx of visitors seek-
ing accommodations brings revenue
into Gainesville, there is also a larger
financial goal. The final event was
Saturday night's "Phreak Nasty"
party.
Samuel Green explained how
proceeds would go to the MAC
AIDS Fund, established in 1994 by
MAC Cosmetics to support people
affected by HIV or AIDS globally.
The fund provides resources to non-
profit organizations for basic needs,
health care, social services and edu-
cation.
Founded at Howard University
in 1914, Phi Beta Sigma promotes
a philosophy of brotherhood,
scholarship and service. The UF
chapter was founded in 1974 and
was the first black Greek organiza-
tion to sponsor a float in the UF
Homecoming parade.


UF construction causes headache for young patients


By MARIA CLAUDIA ANGARITA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The $12.5 million construction of Pugh Hall
for the UF College of LiberalArts and Sciences
has experienced challenges, but those setbacks
are not expected to affect its completion date
in late Fall 2007.
Howie Ferguson, senior project manager,
said the largest challenge to this project has
been managing the disruptive nature of un-
derground utility work.
"UF is an old campus, so we almost al-
ways find 'stuff' in the ground that wasn't
anticipated," Ferguson said. "Working around
those discoveries and minimizing the impact


on surrounding buildings is a big deal."
The construction also required the tem-
porary closure of a portion of Fletcher Drive,
which is a fairly unprecedented move at UF,
Ferguson said.
Dr. Guy Nicolette, chief of staff at the
Student Health Care Center, said the construc-
tion has primarily affected student patients
because they can no longer park on Fletcher
Drive and have to use the spaces in the ac-
cess drive between the SHCC and the Florida
Gym.
"The services inside the Student Health
Care Center are unaffected and functioning
fully," Nicolette said. "Thankfully, there has
been no need for emergency vehicle access,


"UF is an old campus, so we
almost always find 'stuff' in the
ground that wasn't anticipated."

Senior project manager

but there is a plan in place if that need arises
during the time of construction."
For Marcela Cubides, a UF graduate stu-
dent, picking up a prescription at the phar-
macy at the SHCC was a 10-minute trip, but
last Thursday she spent 20 minutes looking for
a parking spot near the building.
"I usually park in front of the infirmary, but


with the parking relocation in Fletcher Drive,
Inow prefer to park in the Reitz Union garage
and walk to the building," Cubides said.
Scott Fox, director of UF Transportation
and Parking Services, said the department has
received complaints from people trying to get
to different buildings and parking spots along
the construction area, despite attempts by the
traffic office to make things better by working
with other departments at UF
The progress made at Pugh Hall so far has
been amazing, Ferguson said.
"The effort to get from there to literally dig-
ging on June 12 was pretty substantial, given
the often-plodding pace of a large institution
like UF," he said.

Error proves no problem for UF legislative hopeful


* STATE CANDIDATE IS A UF
DOCTORAL STUDENT.

By ALEXANDRA SEXTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

A clerical error forced Florida
House candidate and UF gradu-
ate student Robert Thompson to
cear another administrative hurdle
before his name can appear on the
November ballot.
Thompson, a Democrat, took a
leave of absence from his school-
work to run his campaign to be on
the fall ballot for District 42, which
covers parts of Lake, Marion and
Sumter counties.
But he must pay a qualifying fee


in order to have his name on the
ballot, due to a clerical error at the
Lake County Supervisor of Elections
Office.
Lake County Supervisor of
Elections Emogene Stegall said her
office verified all of the signatures in
a timely manner ahead of schedule.
There was a. clerical error because
150 petitions were misfiled and the
proper certification did not make it
to the state by the deadline.
Stegall's office verifies petitions
for all kinds of candidates, from
local to congressional, and even
petitions for constitutional amend-
ments. Nothing like this has ever
happened during the 35 years she
has been working in the' office,
Stegall said.
"We thought we had a foolproof


system, but this shows tliat anything
can happen," Stegall said.
According to a Thompson
campaign press
release, some
S political experts
believe qualify-
S. ing through
S signed petitions
:..." is preferable
:0 because it shows
Thompson strong grassroots
support.
"There has been tons of sup-
port," said Thompson, 25. "I've had
the opportunity to meet people and
establish a widespread bipartisan
base."
Thompson said he and his vol-
unteers turned in more than 1,200
petitions more than the state


required to have his name placed
on theballot. The state requires can-
didates to either pay a qualifying fee
or collect petitions equal to 1 percent
of registered voters in their district,
according to the press release.
"We handed in the proper
number of petitions, but they were
misfiled and now we have to pay
$1,800," Thompson said in a tele-.
phone interview on Monday.
Thompson said .he received a
phone call Friday about the prob-
lem, and the check for $1,859.76 was
sent overnight on Saturday.
He is. scheduled to meet with
Kristi Reid Bronson, chief of the"
Florida Bureau of Election Records,
in Tallahassee today to discuss his
records.
"We're finishing up our qualify-


ing paperwork, and we're mov-
ing forward with the campaign,"
Thompson said.
The candidate said he got started
in politics watching his mother as
a politically active member of the
Groveland community.
After graduating from the
University of Central Florida,
Thompson taught high school,
which exposed him to various issues
in the education system.
State Rep. Hugh Gibson, 65 and
a Republican, is Thompson's only
opponent. Thompson said Gibson
has turned down previous offers to
have a debate, but the two have set a
debate for Oct. 4 in The Villages.
Thompson said he is happy with
his support and will continue to
work intil the Nov. 7 election.


Rain-soaked speech clocks in at two minutes, attracts supportive crowd


SMITH, from page 1


Smith said he was amazed at the number of
people who showed up despite the weather.
"It's that time of the year," he said.
He said his priority was to finish the speech
to keep the crowd from the storm.
"When I see lightning, I tend to step away
from the microphone," he said, chuckling.
"It's just a habit."
If hehad more time, he said he would have
talked about his plans for public education,
windstorm insurance and health care.
Smith also mentioned his goals for Florida's
universities and community colleges..He said
he supports the Bright Futures Scholarship
Program, but added that it's only part of the
solution.
The number of need-based scholarships
needs to increase, he said.
He. mentioned stabilizing costs for under-
graduate students and increasing graduate-
level tuition to enhance programs.
In an interview before Smith's arrival,
UF graduate Raju Vyas said that supporting
Democrats is "a very healthy thing to do" in
general and that it helps garner publicity for
individual campaigns.


The 22-year-old Vyas will attend UF's law
school in fall and is the field manager, and
policy analyst for Democrat Dave Bruderly's
congressional campaign.
Vyas said that it is important to support
both Democratic gubernatorial candidates as
much as possible before one is selected in the
primary.
The support will encourage the party to
grow, which is important in preparation for
the race against the Republican candidate,
he said.
Josh Simmons, a UF economics sophomore
and the vice chairman of the UF College
Republicans, was the only member of his or-
ganization at the event.
He said he's here to ensure that Rod Smith's
liberal record is not ignored or covered up.
"He (Smith) has moved south literally and
ideologically," Simmons said before the event.
"Whether on taxes, education or the economy,
Rod Smith's proposals will turnback the prog-
.ress made in the Jeb Bush administration."
Simmons said Smith moved his campaign
headquarters south to Fort Lauderdale to ap-
peal to the liberal voters, and in doing so has
alienated a majority of the population.
Nevertheless, Smith has deep roots in the
Gainesville community and numerous ties to
UF.

gubernatorial candidate Rod Smith at a downtown rally Monday afternoon.


A 1975 graduate of UF's law school, Smith
successfully prosecuted Gainesville serial
killer Danny Rolling in the early 1990s and has
been elected to public office as a state attorney
in 1992 and as a state senator in 2000.


Smith was a UF law school'professor from
2000 until January, and all of his children have
attended UF
"My family is full of Gators," he said in the
interview.


DVD discovery leads to UF investigation, drill team loses university sponsorship


DRILL TEAM, from page 1


was on it.
Cupoli does not remember whether or not he knew that
the people on the DVD were members of the Billy Mitchell
Drill Team at the time, but he could tell from their behavior
that they were ROTC members.
The drill team was founded at UF in 1951. It was named
after William Landrum "Billy" Mitchell, an infamous and
controversial Navy pilot in the early 1900s.
When Gassiot received the DVD from Cupoli, he watched
it and said he was concerned with some of the things he saw.
He confirmed that the tape contained members doing push-
ups and sit-ups in a darkened room with a strobe light. He
said that it appeared to be both new members in training
as well as established members participating together, al-
though many of the established members were shouting at
the candidates.
In late April, Gassiot called Col. Rodney Fitzpatrick, the
commander of UF's Air Force ROTC unit, and Maj. Ulises
Cartaya, the faculty adviser for the team. The men went to
Gassiot's office to view the DVD.
Gassiot said they were shocked when they watched the
DVD.


"They reacted with, 'Those kids are doing what?'"
Gassiot said in describing their response.
Fitzpatrick could not be reached for comment.
Cartaya declined to comment. He said that he was not at
liberty to discuss the contents of the tape or the disciplinary
action. He said that he would contact his commander but
that it would take about two weeks to get the approval he
needed to make a formal comment.
"I have seen a lot worse. I was never con-
cerned for the members' health or safety."
Ken Gassiot
Assistant Dean of Students

Several drill team members refused to comment about
the' contents of the tape or the actions taken by the ROTC.
The team was investigated before, in November 2003,
after allegations of underage drinking at a November 2002
new-member party surfaced, according to published docu-
ments in the team's file. Because of these accusations, the
team was being watched carefully, Gassiot said.
The activities on the tape were the last straw, he said.
On April 27, Fitzpatrick faxed a letter notifying the
department of student activities of the "resignation of
sponsorship of the Billy Mitchell Drill Team by the United


States Air Force and the University of Florida Air Force
ROTC Detachment 150," according to a report read by Kelli
Romano, the assistant director of student involvement.
Romano said she did not know why the team had lost
its sponsorship. She said that, according to reports, the only
reason was that its faculty adviser had stepped down.
Romano contacted Cupoli in June and reported that he
did not know anything about a DVD.
When questioned on Wednesday, Cupoli said that he did
not remember Romano's exact question.
He said that as far as his records show the drill team has
only lost its university support because its advisers stepped
down. If the team finds a new adviser it can be immediately
reinstated.
The university took no immediate disciplinary action
because it was handled so quickly by the Air Force, Gassiot
said. But, he added, the matter is not finished as far as UF
is concerned. He said he was not conducting an "investiga-
tion," but is informally gathering information from the new
candidates who participated in the training.
The Air Force ROTC has suspended the team indefinitely,
he said. Because the actions taken were internal, the records
are not required to be made public.
"I have seen a lot worse," he said of the group's conduct.
"I was never concerned for the members' health or safety."

Honeybee horror all the buzz at UF sorority house


* OFFICIALS WORRY THAT THE HIVE
IS HOME TO AFRICANIZED BEES.

By MELISSA THOMPSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

Several thousand residents causing a buzz
on Sorority Row are about to be evicted.
UF pest management officials said they
will remove a hive of about 10,000 to 20,000
European honeybees from a magnolia tree on
the property of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority, 1142
E. Panhellenic Drive, this week.
The hive is considered a threat to student
safety and caused a minor project delay at the
neighboring Delta Delta Delta Sorority house
construction site, officials said.
"We're happy they're going to do some-
thing, and they're going to send the appropri-
ate people out to do the right thing," said Tom
Hurlbutt, a principal project manager at the
Delta Delta Delta construction site.
Hurlbutt said he was forced to delay the


removal of two aging trees on the property
about two weeks ago because noise from chain
saws could agitate the bees.
Now that the university has decided to
remove the bees, he said construction should
remain on schedule.
A team of UF pest management experts
visited the site Friday and decided remov-
ing the hive would prevent potential human
contact with the bees, said Kenneth V. Glover,
desk coordinator for pest management proj-
ects at UF's Environmental Health and Safety
Division.
The massive hive, which looms from a tree
limb about 30 feet from the ground, could fall
during a storm and endanger students, said
Glover, who visited the site Friday.
The Zeta Tau Alpha house is unoccupied
for the Summer semester, but Glover said he
was still concerned about the safety of any
other residents'in the area.
"Just in the interest of safety, we decided it
was best to remove the hive," he said. "They're
harmless when left alone."


"Last Tuesday, we got reports that
we lost four dogs in Palm Beach
County to Africanized bees."
Jerry Hayes
Chief of apiary inspection for the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services' Division of Plant Industry

Glover said he is 99.9 percent sure the bees
are of the gentle European variety, but they
could potentially be an aggressive Africanized
hybrid.
Africanized bees are a hybrid of the gentle
European and the hyper-defensive African
bee, said Jerry Hayes, chief of apiary inspec-
tion for the Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services' Division of Plant
Industry. He said those bees are extremely ag-
gressive and defensive of their nests.
Africanized bees can be found in South
America, Central America, Mexico and the
southern United States, he said.


Hayes said 'beehives not monitored in
colonies by professional keepers could poten-
tially be the Africanized form of the insect and
might pose a public safety hazard.
"Last Tuesday, we got reports that we
lost four dogs in Palm Beach County to
Africanized bees," he said.
Glover said he placed a work order with
UF's Physical Plant Division on Friday to se-
cure a "high-reach" machine, normally used
to trim trees or work on power lines, that can
extend 30 to 40 feet to reach the hive. He said
in a phone interview Monday that he did not
know when the bees will be removed.
Richard Martyniak, an urban entomologist
who also assessed the hive, said that whoever
removes the bees will wear a protective suit
and slowly apply soap-based foam, without
insecticide, to smother the bees within 30
seconds.
Glover said UF's pest management profes-
sionals will remove the hive, which is about
the size of a five-gallon bucket, for free be-
cause it is a service for a campus residence.

elite program if it could hire Burde as an as-
sistant.
UF's gymnastics program received such a
boost Thursday when the Gators announced
Burde will join the staff as an assistant.
"Coaching at Florida is an opportunity
that I couldn't pass up," Burde said. "The
program's potential is limitless because
there is so much to offer the top recruits as
far as academics, facilities and, of course,
the weather. The three of us (including head
coach Rhonda Faehn and assistant coach
Robert Ladanyi) all share the goal of win-
ning a national championship. That is what
we will have the Gators focused on in the
upcoming seasons.
"I'd like to say 'thank you' to the Nebraska
program for giving me the opportunity


to coach at the collegiate level. [Nebraska
coach] Dan [Kendig], the team and the rest of
the staff were awesome to work with. I wish
them well in the future."
Burde will coach uneven bars, as well
as aid in recruiting and team conditioning.
He was named the National Association of
Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches Assistant
Coach of the Year in 2003.
The 32-year-old will reunite with Faehn;
both were members of Nebraska's coaching
staff for the 2002 season. In five seasons with
the Cornhuskers, the team advanced to four
NCAA Super Six team finals (2002, '03, '05,
'06), earning its highest placing of fourth in
2003.
Burde, who coached the Cornhuskers'
vault and floor performers, saw Nebraska
gymnasts earn a total of 19 All-America
honors in the two events during the last five
seasons.
In 2003, Nebraska's Richelle Simpson
claimed the NCAA all-around and floor ex-
ercise titles. Simpson represented her native
Canada at several top international events,
and Burde coached her at the 2003 World
Championships.
Nebraska won Big 12 team titles in 2002,
'03 and '05.
Prior to joining Nebraska, Burde was


the head girls' program coach for the Bart
Conner Gymnastics Academy. He coached
Level 10 and elite international gymnasts, in-
cluding U.S. National Team members Larissa
Stewart and Lori Wynn.
"I feel the combination of Adrian
with Robert [Ladanyi] will give the
Gators one of the best coaching
staffs in the country."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics head coach

"Adrian will be an outstanding addition
to our staff," Faehn said. His coaching abil-
ity, is well thought of by both coaches and
gymnasts. ... He has shown a tremendous
talent for coaching while at the collegiate and
dub level.
"I feel the combination of Adrian with
Robert [Ladanyi] will give the Gators one of
the best coaching staffs in the country."
Burde began his coaching career in his
native Romania in 1994 and was a junior
national team coach until 1999.
During his time with the Romania junior
national team, Burde coached three seasons
with Ladanyi. The two have known each oth-


er since their competitive gymnastics days.
In 1997, Burde joined the staff of Steaua
Bucharest, the top junior club in Romania,
and helped guide the team to the 1998 na-
tional title, which included a sweep of the top
four places in the all-around.
At Steaua Bucharest, Burde worked with
Eliza Stoica, who coached the Romanian
national team to a silver medal at the 1992
Olympics in Barcelona.
Burde was a member of the Romanian
Junior National Team from 1988 to 1992. He
joined the French club team Aix les Bains
in 1992 and captured the all-around title at
the 1994 French national meet. Aside from
competing for the club, Burde helped coach
younger gymnasts.
In addition, Burde has coached national
and international athletes in three countries.
He graduated from the Romanian National
School of Coaching in 1996 with a degree in
International High Level Gymnastics.
Burde will replace Randy Lane, who has
been with the UF gymnastics program for the
past four seasons. Lane is exploring other col-
legiate coaching opportunities.
The Gators gymnastics team finished
fourth at the 2006 NCAA Championships
and claimed the NCAA South Central Region
team title.

4 SEC preps for Fab Four return

* THE GATORS WILL TRY TO REPEAT WITH
ALL FIVE STARTERS RETURNING.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

-If you listened closely, enough Monday, you
could hear the Southeastern Conference coaches
groaning, one by one, as they discussed.what it
meant for UF to bring back all five starters from its
national championship team.
Not that the coaches don't appreciate what the
Gators have done for the SEC. It's just hard to give
Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey Brewer a 30-
second standing ovation when you know you have
to play them again.
"I think a lot of us would have been happy in
this league if they would have just went to the
NBA," Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said via
teleconference.
Added Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl: "Well, it's
not going to help Tennessee any, but it's sure going
to help the league. I think it's great."
Pearl can speak from a less-tortured perspective,
considering the Volunteers edged UF in both regu-
lar-season meetings.
Regardless, what the Gators have done before
the 2006-07 season even begins is hardly precedent.
No championship team in more than seven years
has returned'all five starters.
Yet the Gators will do just that.
Noah, Horford and Brewer, all juniors-to-be,
spurned the lure of NBA millions to pursue that
elusive back-to-back title.-
And although the NBA Draft came and went
weeks ago, conference coaches still can't get over
UF's team-first philosophy.
"Those kids have got something special there's


some special chemistry about them," Pearl said. "I
think they've made a terrific statement about plac-
ing the team ahead of themselves."
Which can only make UF coach Billy Donovan
blush.
Except Donovan knows his players have been di-
gesting a steady dose of praise since they cut down
the nets. That worries him.
So one summer after dealing with the loss of
Matt Walsh, Anthony Roberson and David Lee,
Donovan has embraced a new challenge: keeping
the Fab Four (Taurean Green being the fourth mem-
ber of the class) grounded.
"I think a lot of us would have been happy
in this league if they would have just went
to the NBA."
Kevin Stallings
Vanderbilt coach

"A lot of people get around these guys and make
them think that what they did personally was the
reason why we won," Donovan explained. "All of a
sudden, that magnifies someone's role on this team
being a lot more than it was.
"I think distractions are going to be important
for us to deal with. But I feel good about my guys
that nothing's going to get in between them because
of their unity and closeness."
This belittles the fact that UF will lose anywhere
from one to five of its starters next summer.
But, for now, the Gators are dreaming of another
championship. Donovan just hopes they don't for-
get how they won their first.
"[Last year, all five starters] could have taken
more shots," he said. "So entering this year, I think
we have to protect that chemistry, that love, that
extension that we had for one another."

Doesn't it aggravate you when
someone gives you the run-
around? Well, it sure as hell
bothers me.
So we here at alligatorSports have
decided to take action I have, any-
way.
This marks the first edition of my
"What They Meant to Say" series.
Whenever there's a press conference
or media interview loaded with coach-
speak or playerspeak, I'll translate
their comments and tell you what they
really meant.
Even if the players/coaches are
sincere, I'll provide an ultra-genuine
account of what they would have said
had they chugged a keg of truth serum


beforehand. Without further ado, here
is the "What They Meant to Say,"
debut on Monday's Southeastern
Conference basketball teleconference.

LSU coach John Brady on "Big
Baby" Glen Davis shedding 39
pounds this summer.
.WHAT HE SAID: I think talk-
ing to the trainers and coaches
about his future, we decided that
he needed to improve his condi-
tion to have a good chance.
WHAT HE MEANT TO
SAY: After consulting with the
American Heart Association, we
realized someone who is 6-foot-9
and 310 pounds qualifies as fat.


Fat people don't make great bas-
ketball players. So we padlocked
Glen's fridge.
WHAT HE SAID: He's proven
he can get a hold of his body, so
now he can only be better for us.
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY:
Kids switching from Chunky
Monkey to low-fat frozen yogurt
can make a world of difference.

Vanderbilt coach Kevin
Stallings on whether the NCAA
should expand its tournament be-
yond 65 teams.
WHAT HE SAID: I understand
the people that say, "If it's not bro-
ken, so why are we trying to fix

it?" But I
don't think
it was bro-
ken when it
was small-
er, and
expansion
only helped
it. I think it
could only

WHAT HE MEANT TO, SAY:
If they don't jack this up to 128
teams, I'm going to lose my job.

South Carolina coach Dave


Odom on Tubby Smith's recent
struggles with Kentucky.
WHAT HE SAID: I don't think
he let it slip; letting it slip sounds
like he did it on purpose. I don't
think the program has slipped at
all.
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY:
Last season, we beat Kentucky,
which means that Tubby either
shaved points or he wanted to
get fired and coach the Charlotte
Bobcats.
By the way, is there some way
I could pull a Lou Holtz? Like,
could I just call Dean Smith dur-

coach and retire on a white horse?
What? Dean Smith would never
coach here? Phooey.
Odom on UF's Fab Four returning
for their junior seasons.
WHAT HE SAID: I've never felt it
hurt a player if he stayed.
WHAT HE MEANT TO SAY:
How in God's name did I lose
Renaldo Balkman in the first round?
Does Isiah Thomas even care any-
more? I brought Balkman off the
bench for several games last season
on purpose he can't shoot.
Is that not a requirement in the
NBA? For example, could I just call
Isiah and offer my services for next
season as an inexpensive veteran
point guard?
UF coach Billy Donovan on post


national-championship hype.
WHAT HE SAID: I think distrac-
tions are going to be important for us
to deal with.
WHAT HE MEANT TO
SAY: Does anybody have Zach
Huddleston's address? E-mail?
