CLAS debt grew over years without action
CLAS debt grew over years without action


* FACULTY HAVE LITTLE TIME TO RE-
VISE A PLAN TO ELIMINATE DEBT.

By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Writer
csmith@alligator.org
UF's largest college is facing a $4 million
debt this year, but that's been business as
usual for the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences since about 2003.


That year, the college outspent its'bud-
get by $1.6 million, and it hasn't been out
of the red since. By 2005, CLAS had racked
up $4.8 million in debt. The college's dean,
Neil Sullivan, said uncontrollable factors
like increasing enrollment have put finan-
cial pressure on CLAS.
Since a newspaper report first publi-.
cized CLAS's financial troubles in July,
university and college administrators have
been drawing up plans to fix the problem


- and shifting the blame for it.
Sullivan said the Board of Governors,
which oversees Florida's 11 public uni-
versities, was worried about
On CLAS's situation. Board
CaomFuS members pressured the UF
administration to help CLAS
eliminate its debt.
The administration paid off the college's
then-debt of about $4 million. But another
$4 million is racking up for this academic


year.
UF President Bernie Machen and Provost
Janie Fouke told the college to design a plan
to become debt-free. But they left it up to
the college to decide which departments
would be hit with cuts.
Machen and Fouke set a Sept. 1 deadline
for the college to draw up its plan.
"I really wasn't interested in who to
blame or how we got there," said Fouke,

fligh-tech hunt


Andrea Morales / Alligator btan
Sophomore Daniel Bishop crouches beneath a boardwalk on campus Monday afternoon, searching for a
hidden prize in a sort of scavenger hunt played worldwide with Global Positioning System technology.


Players span

the globe, UF
By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Writer
Dan Bishop studied the digital
red arrow on his Magellan eXplorist
600, then looked to a thicket of trees
near the Marston Science Library.
He slipped the cell-phone-sized
Global Positioning System device
into-his jeans pocket and headed
toward the trees.
But first, he glanced around to
make sure no muggles were watch-
ing. UF's campus is crawling with
muggles, the term for those oblivi-
ous to the worldwide scavenger
hunt known as geocaching.
Bishop is a geocacher pro-
nounced "geo-casher" and he is
on the hunt.


"Just act natural," he said casu-
ally. An understood rule of geo-
caching is that geocachers do not
expose their missions to muggles.
Bishop left the crowded sidewalk
and disappeared in a mess of leaves
and brush.
Between two trees, he found a
small GladWare container camou-
flaged with brown spray paint.
To a muggle, the plastic container
holding a soggy, expired Disney
Park Hopper pass, a half-punched
discount card for bubble tea, a free
coffee coupon, a button, a micro-
scope slide and some string, would
look like a jumble of junk nothing
worth stealing. But to Bishop, it was
like finding a chest of doubloons.
He describes geocaching as a
moder-day treasure hunt. Instead
of yellowed maps and X-marks-
the-spot, geocachers use GPS tech-
nology and latitude and longitude
coordinates.

Student survey on tuition readies for distribution


* THE STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT
WILL USE IT TO SET HIS POSITION.

By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Writer
jchindamo@alligator.org

After four months of development, Student
Body President John Boyles is almost ready to
distribute a survey designed to gauge UF stu-
dents' opinions on tuition hikes.
The survey will be distributed within two
weeks, he said Monday. Boyles created the
survey to see if students are satisfied with
"paying what they're paying for what they're
getting," he said.


As Student Body president, Boyles is au-
tomatically granted a spot on UF's Board of
Trustees, the university's highest governing
body. He serves as the board's only student
member, and he said he wants to consider stu-
dent input before expressing his opinions.
The tuition survey was designed by Boyles,
UF statisticians and an SG organization spe-
cifically created to work on it.
Boyles said the purpose of the survey is to
ensure that Student Government is really serv-
ing UF students. He announced the survey's
creation this Summer.
The first question on the survey, which will
be distributed to every UF student by e-mail,
asks whether students feel tuition increases


would be justified "if the resulting funds were
used for a specific purpose."
Boyles said it basically asks if students are
"willing to pay more to get more."
"Perhaps the students do want to pay more
money for some of these benefits," Boyles
said.
Some benefits of in-
Student creased tuition suggested
Government on the survey are more
course offerings, smaller
class sizes and better academic facilities.
Boyles said one question references a state
proposal that would raise tuition by seven per-
cent, which would be covered by the Florida
Bright Futures Scholarship.


However, other state proposals for a tuition
increase do not factor in the Bright Futures
Scholarship, he said.
The e-mail Boyles plans to send students
will provide a link to an online version of the
survey. He plans to give students two weeks
to respond, but that timetable isn't definite yet,
he said. After the two weeks, Boyles said, the
data will be compiled immediately.
"That's the beauty of an online survey,"
Boyles said.
Boyles said he hopes every student re-
sponds to the survey, but he would be happy
even with a smaller representation.
"I would be extremely happy if we had
around 10,000 responses," he said.


Former president of Peru to discuss Latin democracy


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

He is considered a leader, an
inspiration and a walking contra-
diction. While some see a president
who couldn't deliver on his prom-
ises, others see a hero who returned
democracy to Peru.
Former Peruvian president
Alejandro Toledo will speak today at
7:30 p.m. in the Reitz Union Grand
Ballroom. He will address "Poverty
and the Future of Democracy in
Latin America."
Toledo was raised in poverty.
At age 7, he shined shoes and
sold newspapers for a living in
Chimbote, Peru. He moved to San
Francisco at 16 to study. At 46, he
had a master's degree in economics
and a doctorate in education from

Nine years later, at age 55, he was
ruling Peru. He was the country's
first president of
Andean-Indian
descent. Most
Peruvians have
indigenous an-
cestry, and about
54 percent of the
-2 population lives
Toledo below the pover-
ty line, according
to the CIA's World Factbook.
Toledo's five years in power
- 2001 to 2006 were full of politi-
calups and downs.
He evoked popular discontent af-
ter failing to create new jobs, which
he had promised to do in his cam-
paign. In 2005, his approval rating
fell to 7 percent. That year, Toledo's
sister was found guilty of forging


thousands of signatures to register
his party for the 2000 elections.
UF associate professor of Latin
American studies Mark Thurer
lived in Peru during Toledo's presi-
dency. When his approval rating
plummeted, Thurner said, there was
talk of a military coup d'etat.
Some politicians includ-
ing current president Alan Garcia
- asked Toledo to resign, but he
completed his term.
"I went through rough times
during my administration, but I am
a survivor, I am a fighter," Toledo
said in a phone interview. "I had to
stay in line. I had to fight."
Toledo was also involved in
personal scandals. At the beginning
of his presidency, he was accused
of having an illegitimate daughter,
whom he eventually recognized.
Despite Toledo's lack of sup-


port and the scandals that marred
his presidency, UF political science
Chairman Philip Williams said
Toledo was instrumental in return-
ing democracy to Peru.
Toledo spearheaded the opposi-
tion against Alberto Fujimori, a
heavy-handed ruler accused of cor-
ruption on several counts.
For audio of the interview,
visit www.alligator.org.
Toledo led marches across Peru,
demanding Fujimori's resignation.
Fujimori stepped down in 2000, and
Toledo was elected in 2001.
Williams said that during
Toledo's five-year term, Peru's econ-
omy grew at a steady rate, achieving
stability and restraining inflation.
The problem, he said, was that
Toledo and his policies lacked the
backing of a strong party, which

made him unable to deliver prom-
ises of new jobs and better salaries.
Williams lived in Peru at the be-
ginning of Toledo's presidency. -
Jorge Aragon, a UF doctoral
student, said Peruvians were upset
poverty remained while business
grew.
"Toledo was good for business,
but not for the people," said Aragon,
who left his native Peru in 1998.
At the end of his term, Toledo
won back his country's approval.
He said his approval rating was
about 50 percent when he left office.
Thurner said another president
would have resigned under the
pressure Toledo felt.
"All said and done," Thumer
said, "he is an important president
- important in terms of possibility
of growth with democracy, which is
tough in Latin America."

* MOVIES PORTRAY MIXED
RACE COUPLES NEGATIVELY.

By RENE PEREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
When Jose Luna and Katoya
King hold their daughter, life seems
to stand still, and everything seems
perfect.
Though Luna and King seem
normal enough, King admits that,
as an interracial couple, they some-
times get stares. According to. a
recent UF study, interracial relation-
ships like theirs are often portrayed
negatively by Hollywood.
While race makes no difference
to the couple, some people still
take issue when they see couples of
mixed race, King said.
"I sometimes get men or women
staring at us and muttering, 'What
is she doing with him,'" King said,
referring to Luna's light complexion
in contrast with her own. "Its still
out of the norm for them."
It's abnormal
UF for Hollywood,
too. The UF study
found that movie
couples involving mixed.races tend
to be more superficial, sex-based,
unhealthy and short.
"You hardly see it, and when you
do, the message is that it's danger-
ous and basically a sexual matter
with little long-term staying power,"
said Nadia Ramoutar, author of the
study, in an e-mail interview.
Ramoutar, now an assistant pro-
fessor of communication at Flagler
College, conducted the research for
her doctoral dissertation in the mass
communications program at UF.
She had a few reasons some
personal for doing the study.
As the child of an interracial
marriage, she found the topic to
be personally and professionally
interesting. She said no study of this
magnitude had been done on the
topic, so her adviser encouraged her
to do it.
The study examined mixed re-
lationships in the 15 top-grossing
films each year between 1967 and
2005. Ramoutar watched each film
several times for the study.
The criteria by which she deter-
mined a film relationship were that
it had to be romantic or sexual. This
meant that the characters had to
display physical contact or imply
that such-contact had taken place,
she said.
Ramoutar further points out that .
when interracial couples are used
in a film, it's typically for a specific
purpose.
"The reason is usually commer-
cial or for conflict," she said. "That's
how film works. Also, most of the
women used are not very multifac-
eted characters, but they are beauti-
ful and good to look at."

Remember us?

City should represent

residents, not developers
E ver heard of eminent domain? If you plan to own a
house some day, you should have. Eminent domain
allows the government to seize private property with
compensation but without the consent of the property
owner.
Traditionally, state and local governments have used it to
build public improvements like schools, hospitals and free-
ways. But now, thanks to a 2005 Supreme Court ruling, they
can take your house, hand it over to a private developer and
- presto change there's a Toyotathon where your living
room used to be. It doesn't seem fair, does it?
Unfortunately, it's part of a disturbing trend. Across the
country, cities and towns are bending over backward or
forward, maybe to appease local businesses. Want a tax
abatement? Here you go. New stadium? It's yours. Pesky ten-
ants won't let you bulldoze their property? Well, that's what
eminent domain is for.
Take University Comers, for example. Last year, the
Gainesville City Commission granted the development a
$37 million tax break. Then Alachua County got in on the act
- and the package swelled to about $98 million in local taxes
University Comers will never have to pay.
But that's not all. To clear out the property's last re-
maining tenant Starbucks the Florida Department of
Transportation filed an eminent domain suit claiming the cof-
fee shop extends 10 feet into a public right of way. The build-
ing is 50 years old. Funny how the state never noticed before.
We wish University Comers were an aberration, an excep-
tion to the rule. But it's not. State and local governments in-
creasingly function as advocates and financiers and some-
times, strong-arm enforcers for powerful businesses. In the
scramble to attract new development and new jobs, they sell
out their own constituents, usually for a pittance.
Gainesville is no different. Next spring, the Downtown
Plaza a public space built with taxpayers' money will
become a storage site for the construction of a Hampton Inn
& Suites on Southeast First Street. We'll get it back in a year
or two.
In the meantime, the Hilton Hotels Corp., which owns
Hampton Inn & Suites, won't pay the city rent. It won't spon-
sor community events. And when construction displaces the
plaza's homeless when they decamp to some other public
place it won't be the developers' problem. But if you live
downtown, it could be yours.
So why should the city cater to local businesses' every
whim? It wouldn't ask University Comers or Hampton Inn &
Suites to give us free rooms for a year that would be absurd.
But somehow it's OK to dole out tax breaks and public prop-
erty, free of charge? It's OK to snatch homes and small busi-
nesses and hand them over to rich investors? We don't get it.
Fortunately, property owners will have a chance to defend
themselves at the voting booth next month. Amendment 8,
which would ban the use of eminent domain for private de-
velopment, will be on the ballot and the Alligator encour-
ages all students, Democrats and Republicans and everyone in
between, to vote for it.
This isn't a partisan issue. But it is an important one. In fact,
it addresses the $64,000 question in politics what's the pur-
pose of government? Does it exist to serve the governed or a
select few? On Nov. 7, for once, the voters will have their say.

Columanities should always come first
Humanities should always come first


There is a frightening trend here at UF: Far too
many students think the humanities are inferior
to the sciences. OK, I get it. A lot of students at UF
just go through the motions, get their degree and march
on to medical school and then on to collect that pay-
check, BMW and trophy spouse.
I'm not calling the sciences unimportant or saying
the humanities will solve everything that is wrong with
the world. That's more than a little naive. The two must
coexist in order for our society to progress. They must
learn from and teach each other but the fact of the
matter is that the humanities have always come first.
A history lesson for you to consider: Is it surpris-
ing that the fields of astronomy, physics, mathematics,
medicine and chemistry to name a few evolved
from philosophy, the core of the humanities? During the
Enlightenment, philosophical texts written in the 17th
century influenced and inspired the age of science in the
18th century. Put that in your beaker and smoke it.
In science, researchers have to repeat an experiment
several times to prove that it's right. And even then, we
never arrive at truth. We can only create theories. What
is true in science is continuously in a state of flux. First
the smallest particle was the atom, then the quark. In 10
years, will it be something totally different? What about
evolution? String theory? Quantum mechanics? And
isn't that process of discovery in itself history?
While science is fascinating because it constantly
changes, the humanities are amazing because they are
timeless, When Keats wrote, "Beauty is truth, truth
beauty that is all ..." well, it really was all. Those
words resonate just as much today as they did nearly
200 years ago. And if thou knowst not what poem I'm


talking about, then get thee to
Google, O budding scholar.
The people we remember
in our culture throughout the
ages are not just the Einsteins
and the Hawkings, but the
Jessica Holland Shakespeares, the Goethes, the
Jess Suggests Homers and the Virgils.
letters@alligator.org They still give meaning to
our societies, hundreds and
even thousands of years after
their deaths. Science is a newfangled invention in com-
parison.
But the biggest question is this: What happened to
learning for the sake of heaven forbid learning?
What happened to studying poetry because it moves
you to tears of joy? What happened to studying a for-
eign language because it is fun, beautiful and the best
way to learn about the rest of the world?
When did we decide it was OK to just zip through
school? This is the most amazing time of our lives -
and not just because of football and parties. We should
embrace our education because we will only get out of
it what we put into it.
All that said, it's completely unfair to say the hu-
manities should come second to the sciences. Curing
diseases and saving lives are noble goals indeed, as are
all the other hopes of the sciences. But the humanities
defines our culture and us. These are the things that
make us human. Let's not forget, that's where the word
"humanities" comes from in the first place.

column appears on Tuesdays.

Letters to ....
Official language won't help immigrants
I was disturbed by "English should be
our official language," Gerald Liles' Monday
column. Is this controversy a "misunder-
standing and lack of respect for language,"
as Liles suggests, or something more akin to
prejudice?
Making English our official language and
actually speaking it well have nothing in com-
mon. The former is more a symbolic gesture,
considering that the majority of us already
speak the language and most immigrants
know they need to learn it to succeed here.
Making it official would not make native
English speakers speak it better, nor would it
help immigrants learn the language.
Ensuring better, more affordable English
classes for immigrants, on the other hand,
would help a great deal. It can take years for
a recent immigrant to become fluent in a new
language and when immigrants feel in-
capable of communicating in English, that's
when they use their native tongues to express
themselves.

Free trade hurts U.S., Peruvian workers
Former Peruvian President Alejandro
Toledo will visit Gainesville today. A cham-
pion of free trade, he dedicated the majority
of his presidency to the creation of a bilateral
free trade agreement between Peru and the
United States. It has already been signed by
both countries and ratified by the Peruvian
legislature. Now all it needs to take on
the force of law is ratification by the U.S.
Congress. .
Unfortunately, the agreement will hurt
almost everyone involved. American manu-
facturing jobs will be outsourced overseas,
and Peruvian farmers will be unable to com-
pete with the United States' government-
subsided agricultural sector.
This often results in a complete bankrupt-
cy of small farmers, who have to sell their
land in order to pay off bank debts. Then
they have no choice but to work in manu-
facturing jobs for wages too low to support
themselves and their families and where
they are subject to all manner of racial and
sexual discrimination. They are also kept
from unionizing.


So who benefits from free trade agree-
ments? American corporations, of course. By
outsourcing labor, they increase their profit
margin at the expense of human dignity and
workers' rights.
We must act quickly to prevent the pas-
sage of this agreement in order to save both
American jobs and the dignity of the work-
ers of Peru. Please call or write your repre-
sentatives in Congress and urge them not to
support the Peruvian free-trade agreement.

Enough already with the science
These smug letters from science and
engineering students, like Heath Massey's
in Monday's Alligator, are starting to grow
tiresome. It's not enough that they stand to
earn a much better living with their degrees
than a student with, say, a degree in philoso-
phy. No, they also demand that everyone
else recognize their superiority over all


other majors.
Well, if the job market is the true measure
of a person's worth to society, then profes-
sional football players, Hollywood actors
and spoiled heiresses-slash-pop musicians
are all worth many times more than lowly
engineers.
Budding scientists and engineers: Put
down the video game controllers, take off
the pocket protector and read something
besides your major's textbooks for a change.
If you're lucky, you might even learn about
something called Maslow's hierarchy of hu-
man needs.
Bridges, irrigation and electric heaters,
while essential, can never fulfill a human
life. I might further remind you that science
and mathematics, as we know them, are
based on principles developed by classical
philosophers and Renaissance men who had
a love of learning in all subjects.
Would Leonardo da Vinci or Sir Isaac
Newton approve of such a dull, utilitarian
approach to life? I doubt it.

CLAS Debt

Timeline


Plan tailed article

CLAS, from page 1

who became provost in August 2005. She
wasn't aware of the debt until this Spring, she
said.
"When the newspapers gave so much cover-
age to it, then we had to escalate the urgency in
which we dealt with it," Fouke said.
The college came up with a five-year plan
Sto balance its budget by 2008 and to reduce
spending for a few years after that.
UF departments like English and religion,
which don't bring in a lot of research money
or grant many degrees, are set to suffer person-
nel and financial cuts under the five-year plan.
Cutting from successful departments "moves
you toward mediocrity," Fouke said.
But Fouke said the CLAS administration
had to offer an explanation for its plan.
John Leavey, chairman of the English de-
partment, said the plan's reasoning hasn't been
adequately explained.
"Even though we requested reasons, even
though we asked for them, they were never
provided," he said.
The plan calls for new chairs in the English
and mathematics departments. Sullivan said
his college needs to "start seeking new leader-
ship" because of "philosophical" differences he
has with the two chairmen.
The college has more than 14,400 students
this Fall. Non-CLAS majors take about 59
percent of the seats in CLAS courses, Sullivan
said.
Some of the college's faculty and students
have criticized Sullivan for the five-year plan.
They've also questioned Machen and Fouke,
although both officials say they were not di-
rectly involved in the plan's content. All three
officials say they're encouraging CLAS faculty
to offer potential changes to the plan, but no
one has, Fouke said.
"I'm not seeing anybody taking any leader-
ship to revise it," she said.
Willard Harrison, Sullivan's predecessor as
dean and a current UF chemistry professor,
said he encountered budget problems as dean
as well.
He added that problems in CLAS can easily
become universitywide issues.
"It just ripples out," he said.

After finding coordinates on the Global
GPS Cache Hunt Web site, geocaching.com,
geocachers program the data into handheld
GPS devices and search for caches, the treasure
boxes that contain the hunter's prize.
Bishop began geocaching this summer after
using a GPS system on a hunting trip in Africa.
He has downloaded the coordinates of most
caches in Gainesville. He estimates that there
are about 300 caches in the five-mile radius
around his apartment.
"In Gainesville, you can take your bike and
pass three of them on the way to class," Bishop
said. "They're all over the place."
Sean Altenbach, a UF dentistry freshman,
created the Facebook.com group Gators for
Geocaching. Altenbach is lax about geocach-
ing ethics. He sometimes points out the secret
caches to'friends between classes. So far he has
found about 20 caches on campus.
SCaches vary in size and shape. They can be
flimsy, like a small plastic bag, or sturdy, like an
army ammunition can. Usually caches contain
an assortment of nonvaluable prizes and a log-


book forfinders to sign. A geocacher who takes
a prize must replace it with a new one.
Bruce Ripley, a Gainesville geocacher who
works in health care, leaves behind special geo-
coins that show a picture of his Jeep, which he
bought for off-road geocaching. He has a $400
Garmin GPSMap 60Cx GPS system.
Ripley has hunted in 30 states and in Mexico,
for a total of about 1,500 caches. He once found
about 130 caches in about 18 hours.
Like most geocachets, Ripley, 53, geocaches
for the experience rather than the prizes.
"I've seen more of Florida because of geo-
caching-over the last couple of years than I
have my whole life," he said.
He calls geocaching an addiction and enjoys
the secrecy of the geocaching community, with
its nicknames and jargon. Ripley defends the
hunt's secrecy to the point of humiliation.
Early one Sunday morning, a Wal-Mart em-
ployee caught Ripley searching for a cache hid-
den inside the back end of a mechanical pony.
"What do you tell a person when you have
your left arm all the way up a plastic'horse?"
Ripley didn't fess up.
Instead, he smiled and said, "You know, I've
always wanted to be a veterinarian."

Healthy Gators
2010 is a coalition of
more than 40 UF departments and orga-
nizations concerned about the well-being
of all members of the campus community.
The work of the coalition is being conduct-
ed in concert with national programs aimed
at improving the health of Americans.
Over the course of the multiyear proj-
ect, the group will conduct comprehensive
assessments of campus health and subse-
quently will design, implement and evalu-
ate interventions that will move UF toward
a campus environment supportive of the
development and maintenance of a healthy
body, mind and spirit for all members of
the UF community.
UF First Lady Chris Machen, who serves
as chair of the Healthy Gators 2010 coali-
tion, hosted a kickoff celebration last month
for Gators on the Go, a free Web-based pro-
gram that allows participants to track their
physical activity on an ongoing basis.
"I believe that prevention is the best way
to stay healthy," Machen said. "The hope
is to get people moving and reducing their
stress by daily exercise that they can do
during their working day."
Physical activity is just one of the ways
Healthy Gators 2010 promotes stress
relief. A comprehensive Web site highlights
services that are already in place on campus
to help faculty, students and staff make
healthier lifestyle choices. The site also
includes lists of scheduled events.
"The program is so multidimensional,"
said Varnes, who is also a professor in the
College of Health and Human Performance.
"The Web site provides one-stop shopping
for campus health resources and services."

UF's new admissions director helps students find their niche


Zina Evans loved being in college. In
fact, she enjoyed her college days so much
you might say she never left.
Evans is the University of Florida's new
director of admissions. She comes into the
position with a lot of experience and a big
desire to help expand the Gator Nation.
"I've been in a college environment for
over 20 years, and I'm still not tired of it,"
she said. "I've never left college, and I keep
trying to bring more people in with me."
At UF, Evans is already working hard on
her main goal of continuing to attract the
brightest students in the state and the nation.
Evans said she hopes to give prospective stu-
dents an opportunity to interact on a personal
level with current UF students, faculty and
staffthrough open houses and other events.
"We want students who will take an
active part in their education, who will be
diverse leaders and who will contribute to
the community," Evans said.
SAlumni also are part of Evans' efforts
to increase UF's profile among potential
students.

"Almost everyone already knows some-
one who is a Gator," she said. "We want to
figure out how we can engage UF alumni
in the actual admissions process. We want
them to be active in a more formal way in
promoting UE"
Evans' experience at the University of
Maryland should serve her well at UE As
the associate director of admissions, she
was responsible for generating interest
in the university through the "Fear the
Turtle" campaign to promote the Univer-
sity of Maryland name. Evans also was an
admissions supervisor at the University of
California at Berkeley and the director of
research for the National Association for
College Admissions Counseling. She has
a bachelor's degree from the University of
California at Irvine a master's degree from
the University of Rhode Island and a doc-
torate from the University of Maryland.
Evans says she feels at home on the
UF campus and hopes to help incoming
students find their way here.

STyson s Buddy


Father, son united on Gators golf team


By ALDEN GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

Buddy Alexander has coached
golf at the collegiate level for almost
30 years.
throughout his tenure, he's seen
28 All-Americans, 29 eventual pros,


45 tournament medallists and 54
All-America honors walk through
his door. With all this on his resume,
you'd think Alexander has experi-
enced it all.' But until 2005's early
signing period, he'd never been his
son's official coach.
That all changed in November
of last year, when Alexander's 18-


The UF men's golf coach Buddy Alexander has been coaching 18-
year-old son, Tyson, who is a Gators freshman.


year-old son, Tyson, signed a letter
of intent, making him a Gator along
with his dad.
"I've been his coach his whole
life," Alexander said. "The only dif-
ference is that now (coaching him)
has to fit into the team concept."
That team concept consists of
a lot of patience for the six-time
Southeastern Conference champion
coach, who has seen his share of
great players wear orange and blue.
After a 2005-2006 season when
UF finished second in the NCAA
championships, the Gators gradu-
ated four seniors and plugged in
five true freshmen.
While Alexander has been a fa-
ther figure to many in three decades
of coaching, he's never burped or
sang any of his players to sleep.
So when Alexander says his stock
quote for 2006-2007 expectations is
"diaper rash," he means it literally.
"You just don't replace the guys
we had with freshmen," he said.
"(But) I think we have a great young
team this season, and I see my son
as just being an important part of
that."
Tyson was born in Gainesville
and had the game of golf imbedded
in his brain at an early age.
But despite his father being the
1986 U.S. Amateur Champion and
his grandfather, Skip, also being
a successful professional, young
Tyson was not immediately capti-
vated by the game the Alexanders
so deeply cherished.
"When I was little, I played a
lot of other sports," Tyson said. "I
played a lot of basketball and base-
ball, so even then, it wasn't always
golf."
But sometimes it was.
And when it came time for
Alexander to pass thetorch to his
son, he did so half-heartedly. He
gave Tyson half a set of golf clubs.
"He just gave me a beat-up bag
with eight clubs in it," Tyson said.
"He told me I should get started
with those to simplify things and
then work my way up later."
Half a set of dubs Was good
enough for Tyson, considering


that his father carries a full head of fact that his son looks up athim from

JUNIORS GET INSURANCE: When
Noah, Horford and junior Corey
Brewer decided to. forgo the
NBA for another season at UF,
they all signed insurance poli-

Brewer, who sustained a right

"Their energy, their focus, their

to do a little bit more fine-tuning
on things. Because of the Canada

of what's been implemented."
While Donovan and the rest of
the Gators have repeatedly said
they do not want to look back on
last season, they may be doing
just that in the weeks to come.

Wemer said. "We lost in the state
finals, and I'd rather have a state
championship ring than get Mr.
Basketball."
After he graduated, Werner
was set to play for North
Carolina State after he committed
to the team as a junior. However,
when Coach Herb Sendek left the
Wolfpack and took the coaching
job at Arizona State, Wemer re-
thought his decision.
"There was a lot of things that
were different when the new
coach came in," Werner said. "He
never coached college before, so
there was a lot of unknown stuff.
I just didn't feel comfortable, so I
thought it was best to look some-
where else."-


He committed to UF on June
17 after reopening his recruiting.
"Even when I was going to
N.C. State, I wanted to go south
to a big school a big football
school," he said. "There are great
academics here. Coach (Billy)
Donovan and the basketball
program is headed in the right
direction, so I just wanted to be

Donovan was more than hap-

"He will be a nice comple-
ment when he is in with a

tallied seven rebounds. Wemer

Coach lays foundation for UF


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

On his first day on the job, Jeff
Pigg didn't show up for work.
He wasn't even in the same
state.
It should have driven his boss
crazy knowing that the man he
hired would have the audacity to
not show up.
But Pigg had a good excuse.
His wife was giving birth to their
daughter, Liberty.
July 1, 2002, marked not only
the birth of Liberty Pigg but of
the Jeff Pigg UF cross country
era; Pigg became the first head
coach in the program's history.
Prior to Pigg's hiring, cross
country had been a part of the
track and field program, but UF
Athletics Director Jeremy Foley
felt the sport needed more of a
focus.
"We had pockets of success,"
Foley said. "But it was not sus-
tained."
Who could have imagined that
in four years, Pigg would take a
group of "spoiled, rich kids" and
turn them into championship
contenders?
The UF men's team is ranked
in the top 25 and has already
placed fourth at the Notre Dame
Invitational and third at the
Pre-NCAA Invitational in Terre
Haute, Ind.
Foley's choice to hire Pigg hit
close to home for many Gators
fans. Pigg earned two All-
America crowns and eight All-
Southeastern Conference honors
in cross country and track while
attending UF in the mid '80s. He
also spent two years at UF as a
*track assistant.
But Pigg returned to play a dif-
ferent role, a challenging one that
presented the following obstacle:
Convert a mediocre program into
something significant.
Pigg said that while coaching
at Missouri, the common percep-
tion was that UF faltered during
clutch situations.


OUT LOUD, from page 20


After the brawl, the Hurricanes gathered
on the sideline and raised their helmets in a
disgusting display of classless celebration.
In 2004, Clemson and South Carolina
suspended themselves from postseason play
following a much less severe fray between
the two teams.
Miami suspended its players for a game
against Duke.
Tennessee Titans' defensive tackle Albert
Haynesworth was suspended five games by
the NFL for stomping on a player's head,
something Hurricanes players also did.
Miami suspended its players for a game
against Duke.
Even UF defensive tackle Marcus Thomas
served a harsher suspension this season af-
ter reportedly testing positive for marijuana.


The Gators had talent but nev-
er seemed to produce results.
"When I was at Missouri,
I took a lot of pride in racing
Florida and beating them," Pigg
said. "And we always did on the
men's side and usually on the
women's side, too."
Ironically, Pigg was entrusted
with finding a way to reverse this
trend.
Building up a collegiate pro-
gram would not be. a new test for
Pigg. After leaving UF in 1990, he
joined Missouri, where he was
an assistant and later head cross
country coach for 10 years.
Pigg admits he did not have a
particularly good squad the first
five seasons.
But the Tigers eventually im-
proved and became a power in
the Big 12.
Under Pigg, the women's
squad qualified five times for
the NCAA championship and the
men's team qualified three times.

The experience gave him a
blueprint for how he wanted to
build up the Gators. It would
start with a change in philoso-
phy: Outside of school,. running
would become the one and only
lifestyle.
"We were able to "Be
do at the University
of Missouri close to what we
want to do here," Pigg said.
"So many times, when one of
the teams starts doing well, they
lead the way to show the other
team how to get it done. Pretty
soon you have a middle-distance
or distance-running culture with
both guys and girls, and then
you're set.
"I figured if I could do it there,
I could do it here."
But success didn't come over-
night for the men's squad.

NCAA championship in Pigg's
first two years as head coach.

Cross country coach Jeff Pigg has built up the university's program during his five-year tenure with the
Gators, including helping this year's men's team rank in the top 25.


He missed games against Alabama and
Kentucky, and the university was subse-
quently criticized.
The Hurricanes committed battery on
the field, and all Miami did was suspend its
players for a game against Duke.
If UM President Donna Shalala has any
shred of dignity, she must realize these pun-
ishments just don't fit the crime.
Now, I can't completely excuse FIU from
this whole deal. After all, the Hurricanes
weren't fighting each other.
But unlike Miami, FIU doesn't have a
history of such conduct. And FIU dismissed
two players from the team, and the other
players who were involved were suspended
indefinitely.
Miami's football team has been syn-
onymous with thuggish behavior since the
1980s, and this is the third time in less than a
year that the Hurricanes have been involved


in an embarrassing incident.
Several Miami players got into a fight
with LSU players after the Hurricanes were
defeated 40-3 by the Tigers in last year's
Peach Bowl. These players were subse-
quently suspended for the Hurricanes' sea-
son opener against Florida State.
Before Miami's game against Louisville
this season, most of the Hurricanes taunted
their opponents by jumping on the Cardinals
logo at midfield. But despite a history of
incidents, don't expect the Atlantic Coast
Conference to step in and fix this sham. The
conference handed down the suspension in
conjunction with the university.
"These suspensions send a clear and
definitive message that this type of behavior
will not be tolerated," ACC Commissioner
John Swofford said Sunday.
Mr. Swofford, if suspending players for
the FSU game Miami's biggest game of


Proved their personal-best times
annually, and Pigg's recruiting
subsequently began to flourish.
One of the first players he re-
cruited was senior Steven Hassen,
who has been on the team since
the start of Pigg's tenure.
"Before Coach Pigg got here,

Coach Pigg came here, it changed

to become the best runner I could
be.
"I wanted to know if he could

he could."
The Gators have improved ev-

one-game suspension against Duke sends
neither a clear nor definitive message.
Even more absurd and telling of
the Hurricanes' culture
were the comments of
Miami TV analyst Lamar
S. Thomas, a former UM
player, during a live tele-
vision broadcast. -
S"That's what I'm talk-
Sing about. When you

the first time since 1997. The
Gators followed up in 2004 with
their second consecutive NCAA
championship berth.
"Since he's been here, our
team has gotten better and bet-

University of Florida."

lorida." The squad took
first place in both
the University of Tampa Early
Bird Classic and the Mountain
Dew Invitational and placed
fourth at the aforementioned
Notre Dame Invitational, ahead
of then-No. 1 Wisconsin.
But the highlight came this
past weekend, when the Gators
topped eight ranked teams for
a third-place finish at the Pre-
NCAA Invitational.
However, the women's squad
hasn't enjoyed this kind of suc-
cess yet.
The Gators continue searching
for their first NCAA champion-
ship berth since 1998.
So far, the 2006 squad is off to
a solid start; the women took first
in their first two competitions.
Junior Lindsay Sundell was also
named the SEC Women's Cross
Country Athlete of the Week on
Sept. 20.
Senior Kecia Johnson believes
Pigg's methods have begun to
pay dividends. :
"We've always had talented
people," said Johnson, who has
run under Pigg for three seasons.
"But I think Coach Pigg has
brought in a lot of girls and guys
who work well as a team.
"Most of the girls on this team
aren't selfish."
It's this unselfish attitude
that has Pigg excited about what
could happen this season.
"The best coaching experienc-
es maybe that I will ever have are
about to happen within the next
few weeks," Pigg said.
"And we're doing it with good
kids and good students."

Coach: National champs didn't play well

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
's jmarina@alligator.org

Although the Gators reached the pinnacle of college
basketball last season, UF coach Billy Donovan feels
his team didn't live up to its potential.
"I went back and watched a lot of the NCAA
Tournament games, and you know what we didn't
play well," he said before Madness 2006. "If you
looked totally at the scoreboard, we were a dominating
team, but we really were not a dominating team if you
looked at how we played."
"I went back and watched a lot of the f ,
NCAA Tournament games, and you know I
what we didn't play well."

Senior Lee Humphrey was not surprised at his
S coach's point of view.
"That's kind of how I figured Coach would be,
because even in our wins during the regular season,
we always looked at film and where we could make
improvements," Humphrey said. "I think Coach
mentioned when we were getting ready for the
Canadian trip that we made a lot of defensive mis-
takes that we could improve on. I think it's good that
Coach looks at those things to make us a better team."
It's hard to imagine UF performing any better in the
2006 tournament.
The Gators held four of their six NCAA opponents
under 60 points and defeated teams by an average of
16 points per game.
Iriividual players achieved record-breaking ac-
complishments, as well.
Then-sophomore Joakim Noah blocked an NCAA
Tournament-record 29 shots, and Humphrey drained a
UF NCAA Tournament-record 22 three-pointers.
Still, the players accept Donovan's take.
"Coach is always the type of guy that feels like we
can get better at something," junior Al Horford said. "I
think we played pretty well, but obviously you can al-
ways get better. You have to believe when he says that
we can get better. You always got to stay on edge and
try to work on something new."
With that in mind, the team has endured daily two-

Werner

If it were up to Dan Werner,
he would have driven down
"Thunder Road" when he
moved from Middletown, N.J., to
Gainesville.
Like most
New Jersey na-
tives, Werner -
a UF freshman
forward is
an avid Bruce
Springsteen fan.
He even grew
ernerup in the city ad-
jacent to Springsteen's.
But perhaps it was Werner's
other predilection for country
music that steered him toward the
next phase of his life.
"We don't even have a coun-
try music station by my house,"
Werer said.
Ranked the No. 16 power for-
ward by Scout.com, Werner is one
of four new additions to the UF
men's basketball team.
As a power forward for Christian
Brothers Academy, Werner was
named New Jersey's Mr. Basketball.
"It was a great honor, but it
wasn't the most important thing,"

Miami, Atlantic Coast Conference swing, miss with lenient suspensions


Apparently, the only ounce of class
at the University of Miami occurs
Monday through Friday.
After Saturday's melee at the Orange
Bowl between the Hurricanes and Florida
International, I was sure there would be a
press conference Sunday announcing Coach
Larry Coker's firing.
There wasn't.
When the school announced it was sus-
pending 13 players, I thought the Hurricanes
would finally take the high road in terms of
punishing their players.


They didn't.
In perhaps one the most shameful dem-
onstrations of a lack of discipline in college
football history, all but one suspended UM
player will miss a grand total of one game
apiece.
And the game in which the players will
be suspended for is against lowly Duke
- a winless team that lost 13-0 to I-AA
Richmond earlier this season and whose
only victory since last season came against
the Virginia Military Institute.
What a punishment.


You 'have prob-
ably seen it yourself:
This was no typical
skirmish. Miami and
FIU players were
throwing punches,
Bryan Jones kicking and stomp-
ing players on the
Bryan Out Loud ground and even
stomping on players'
heads.
On Oct. 6, 1923, Iowa State's Jack Trice
was killed when three Minnesota players


trampled him during the game. If Miami's
Brandon Meriweather one of the players
who stepped on FIU players had killed an
opponent, how many games should he have
been suspended for two, maybe three?
. One Miami player took his helmet off
and began striking an FIU player with it.
That player, Anthony Reddick, is the only
Miami player to be suspended for more than
one game, a decision that was not made un-
til Monday.
