Gator backer files charges against Pants


* PANTS SAYS IT DIDN'T
DO ANYTHING WRONG.

By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer
jblaz@alligator.org

More than 3,500 students
voted on the first day of Student
Government Spring elections
Tuesday as the two competing
parties campaigned for students'
votes.
Brian Aungst, SG's Supervisor
of Elections, said despite the low
turnout for the elections, the first
day of voting went smoothly.
However, a Gator Party sup-
porter and former Swamp Party
senator, John Clayton Brett, filed
a cease-and-desist order against
the Pants Party.
Brett said a student who ap-
peared to be a Pants supporter
violated SG election code and
is suppressing voter turnout
- by passing out "I Voted" stick-
ers Tuesday.
Brett argued that this would
deter campaigners from ap-
proaching the stickered students.
William Foster, who has ap-


peared in Pants' online campaign
videos but said he isn't affiliated
with Pants, said passing out the
stickers was his way of protest-
ing SG.
But his intention was not to
discourage students to vote, he
said.
"I've gotten fed up with the
process," Foster said.
"I've gotten fed up with
the process."

UF student

The SG Elections Commission
will meet today at 12:15 p.m. in
the Reitz Union to decide if Pants
will be punished.
Possible punishments include
disqualification of all candidates
and prohibition of participation
in future elections.
Although Pants Party
President David Meyrowitz said
Foster is not affiliated with the
party, he agreed with Foster's
actions and didn't think he was
doing anything wrong.

Speaker rejects evolution


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

What students learn about evolution in
books is "fake" and has no scientific value,
a Turkish neurosurgeon said to about 50 stu-
dents Tuesday.
Human life is a result of Allah, not evolu-
tion, said Dr. Oktar Babuna, a controversial
Muslim speaker.
In his speech, which was sponsored by
Islam on Campus and cost $3,000, Babuna
argued against Darwinism and said the only
way to understand life on Earth is through
Allah and the teachings of the Koran. Babuna
said it is scientifically impossible for evolution

For example, Babuna showed a diagram
of the human eye and said that the eye has
about 50 distinct parts that help it perform all
its functions.
It would be impossible for the complex hu-
man body to work without

Affar with a flourish of his hands.
To further prove his
point, he said fish could never have trans-
formed into land animals because their inter-
nal systems are entirely different than those of
land animals.
"If there is any change in the gills it will
malfunction," he. said in a thick Turkish ac-

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Senators must attend

By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some Student Government of-
ficials will soon become more in-
volved in the community.
Student senators who represent
off-campus students will soon be
required to attend City and County
commission meetings, the Student
Senate decided Tuesday.
These changes won't take effect
until after the Spring elections.
Each senator will attend four
meetings each term, including two
City or County commission meetings
and two meetings or special events

Sen. Jordan Loh said the Student
Senate is the bridge between the
university and the-
city.
He said it is
very important
for senators to
get involved with
local issues.
Hernandez "It's a great
step into the right
direction," said Barbara Cineas, the
chairwoman of the Student Senate
Rules and Ethics Committee.

MARION COUNTY


Sheriff's deputy arrested on child porn charges


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Writer


A Marion County deputy was fired
Tuesday afternoon and arrested on four charg-
es, including child pornography, a spokesman
for the county's sheriff's office said.
Deputy Gabriel Pizzini picked up a 14-
year-old girl, who had been reported missing,
on Monday at about 9 p.m. and took her to the


local juvenile assessment center, a sheriff's of-
fice press release stated.
After being dropped off, the girl told au-
thorities the deputy had put his hand down
the back of her underwear and said, "Oh, that's
nice, too," while patting her down, according
to the report. The girl also said that Pizzini told
her to expose her breast for him, threatening
to find a reason to keep her in the assessment
center for a longer time if she refused, accord-


ing to the report. When the
girl complied, Pizzini took
a Polaroid photograph of
her, the report stated.
He denied the allega-
tions, but further investiga-
tion by the sheriff's office
found that he took 28 min-
Pizzini utes to travel 9 miles with
the girl in his patrol car. The Polaroid picture


was also found inside the car, according to the
report.
Pizzini, who has held his job for less than a
year, aimed he did not take the photograph
and that the girl was trying to frame him,
said sheriff's office spokesman James Pogue.
Pizzini faces criminal charges of promoting
sexual performance by a child, lewd and las-
civious conduct, possession of child pornogra-
phy and attempted evidence tampering.

* THE STATE IS LOOKING
INTO CRIMINAL CONCERNS.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

The director of Alachua
County jails was suspended from
his job Monday due to allegations
of criminal misconduct, officials
said.
Alachua County Sheriff Sadie
Darnell would not go into detail
about the allegations against Maj.
Robert E. Chapman, 56, because of
the ongoing investigation but said
"there may be some validity to the
criminal violation concern."
Darnell said jail employees
voict.*d initial cpnrnCC o abot .two
weeks ago regarding Chapman,
who has directed the jail for more
than eight years. The employee
allegations led to an internal sher-
iff's office inquiry, she said.
The information the office col-
lected was then sent to the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement's
executive investigation branch,
which contacted Chapman and is


continuing the investigation.
Darnell said after she met with
the investigators, she suspended
Chapman from his job, although
he continues to earn his annual
salary of $103,187.
Darnell added that the criminal
allegations do not appear to have
anything to do with inmate abuse.
Chapman was once investigated
for such allegations. That incident,
which occurred in
2003, involved a UF
Local student. who was
News raped while spend-
ing a weekend in jail
on marijuana charges.
An internal investigation
found that the convict who raped
the student had been given special
privileges like choosing who he
Ic.cIl-o LCU Ls idiC, ci, il Utcug hht
was awaiting a rape trial and jail
officials knew he was dangerous.
Several lower-level jail adminis-
trators were fired, but Chapman
was not held responsible.
Capt. Tony Canchola, a former
security captain for the jail, will
serve as the interim jail director.
Chapman chose not to com-
ment Tuesday.

Mayoral candidate sets sights on traffic, police


Newcomer touts his 'street smarts'


By DANIELLE TORRENT
Alligator Writer

Wesley Watson is running for
mayor against incumbent Pegeen
Hanrahan in part because "it's
un-American to run unopposed,"
he said.
The other reason is that he wants
to change the city.
"I plan to be involved with the
whole community," Watson said. "I
am really trying to do the best for
the city of Gainesville."
Born and raised in Avon Park,
Watson has lived in Gainesville


since 1977 with his wife, LuAnne,
two cats Daisy and Alex and
fish.
His birth name was Herbert
Wesley, and he has an identical
twin, Hubert Lesley.
He said he was named after his
doctor because "back in the '60s,
they had names like that."
While Watson doesn't have a
college degree, he said he has some-
thing better "street smarts."
Watson worked for Gainesville
Regional Utilities for 22 years and
retired in 2002 at age 46. His plat-
form includes making better use


of taxpayers' money, decreasing
traffic congestion and reallocating
city funds.
"If the police department would
start enforcing the law, they would
collect a lot of money," he said.
"There's ways of getting in there
and looking at things we no longer
use anymore but still put money
into."
Watson, new to the political
scene, said he's had trouble playing
the part of a politician but is learn-
ing how to deal with it.
"I found out that it's not like
what you see on TV," Watson said.


"You've just got to have some
tough skin."
Watson said he has been attend-
ing candidate forums, although he
admitted arriving too late to partici-
-ate in the debate at the most recent

event.
He also said
he has been
distributing
campaign fli-
ers around his
neighborhood
in Northwest
Gainesville.
"I do know a


lot of people in this town," Watson
said. "Usually the incumbent gets
all the endorsements. I believe


people will vote what's on their
mind."
He is a contractor for the city,
and he and his wife are the land-
lords of seven duplexes and one
house in northeast Gainesville.
Watson describes himself as a
laid-back, conservative Democrat.
He said he enjoys working and
spending time outdoors.
And he prides himself on the
fact that he quit smoking Dec. 27,
after 35 years of the habit.
But campaigning can be stress-
ful.
"There's been times that I've
wanted a cigarette," he said. "If
anything will make you smoke, this
(election) will."


CITY ELECTION

Incumbent seeks fourth and final term as mayor


By DANIELLE TORRENT
Alligator Writer

Pegeen Hanrahan is running in her fourth
city of Gainesville election, and while she
said it has been quiet compared to the other
three, her unborn child is due any day now.
"I certainly have had women say some-
thing along the lines of, 'You go, girl,'"
Hanrahan said.
Carrying a child while campaigning is
new territory for Hanrahan, but she said
this campaign hasn't been as rigorous as the
others.
She said this is partly because there hasn't
been a real need for her to raise.a lot of cam-


paign money because her opponent, Wesley
Watson, hasn't raised much, either.
After serving six years on the city commis-
sion, Hanrahan was elected mayor in 2004.
She is a Gainesville native who bleeds orange
and blue, she said.
Her platform coming into the mayoral
office involved the development of energy
sustainability with Gainesville Regional
Utilities, improvement of the city's infra-
structure and park system and the advance-
ment of opportunities on the poorer east side
of Gainesville.
Hanrahan said she plans to continue work
with these projects.
During the time she was a regular city
_commissinnPr between 1996 and 2002,


Hanrahan worked on the city's relationship
with UF by helping to improve the transit
system.
A.- She said the Regional
l.a" Transit System bus service
Served 1.5 million riders
S nr Tear when hO starctAI


Hanrahan


Today, city busses trans-
port about 9 million pas-
sengers every year, thanks
in part to Hanrahan's
involvement in allowing
students to use their Gator


1 Cards.
She is currently working to raise money to
provide child care for poor local workers.
One of the biggest projects she undertook


was the acquisition of the Kennedy Homes
site, a dilapidated low-rent housing project
that will be replaced with affordable homes.
Hanrahan also has a slew of degrees: a
bachelor's and master's degree in environ-
mental engineering and another bachelor's
degree in sociology all from UF
Her husband, Tony Malone, is a civil engi-
fieer with CH2Mhill in Gainesville.
The fact that he is a Florida State
University Seminole, Hanrahan said, is "his
only kind of real flaw."
But Hanrahan knows where the loyalties of
the couple's year-old daughter, Evyleen Mary
Malone, lie.
"I've taught the baby to say, 'Go Gators!'"
she said.

A table was lined with fried

and Pepsi products next to Black
History Month programs and pins
that had "What's your story?"
printed on them.
UF students Bridget Robinson,
a freshman, and Jaclyn Harris, a
sophomore, planned the event.
"I think it is really good to give
back to the community but also that
everybody knows we are doing it


for a cause," Robinson said.
The event
included per-

Eight students danced to

students gathered to check out
the festivities. Several of the stu-

around for gift-card giveaways.

Gambling often starts out as fun -
a bet among friends. But, some people 1,
find it hard to stop gambling, even 4
when the fun is over. Most people can, :t
gamble with no problem, but others
have serious financial, emotional,
physical, and sometimes legal i .
consequences. If you or someone you

SG Elections Commission will meet to decide if Pants will be punished


VOTING, from page 1


"('I Voted' stickers) are not campaign
material," Meyrowitz said.
Vanessa Goodwin, the Gator Party vice'
presidential candidate, said students would
use the. stickers to evade the campaigning
candidates.


"They assume we won't talk to them,"
she said.
Despite the election violation complaint,
both the Gator Party and the Pants Party feel
confident heading into the last day of the
elections.
Gator Party presidential candidate Ryan
Moseley said, "We're doing our best to get
our message across."


Pants Party presidential candidate Bruce
Haupt also tried to get his platform across to
students.
Student Government "Ithinkwe're
kicking ass,"
Haupt said.
Students voted for several different rea-
sons, ranging from support for a senator to
support for one of the referendums.


Stewart Atkinson, a UF sophomore, said
he came out to support the creation of a stu-
dent-run homeless shelter.
"The city of Gainesville isn't doing much
about it," he said.
Dan Lahatte, a-UF freshman supporting
the Gator Party, said he liked the party's
idea of letting students choose the speakers
SG brings to campus.


Students dispute his claims


Andrew Stanfill/Alligator
Oktar Babuna argues Tuesday evening that scientific evidence supports creationism. He spoke at
an event sponsored by Islam on Campus.


CREATION, from page 1

cent. "Therefore it is scientifically im-
possible that the gills could adapt to a
land creature."
In conclusion, Babuna said, evolu-
tion is not a theory but an ideology
that is aimed at convincing people to
be atheists.
"Apes are apes, and humans are
humans," he said. "There is nothing
in between."
But he did not discuss any scientific
evidence supporting creationism.
At the end of his speech, students
challenged Babuna with questions
about his credentials and offered sci-
entific evidence against Babuna's at-
tacks on evolution. Responding to stu-
dents, Babuna said he has given over
500 lectures at 50 universities and has
spoken at places such as Indonesia, the
United Kingdom and Israel.
After the speech, students gathered
in groups of five or. six, and many


passionately refuted Babuna's claims.
Others rushed to ask Babuna ques-
tions and challenge his arguments.
"He's a physician, and he's wrong!"
said Omar Ishaq, a microbiology and
cell science senior, while pounding his
fist on the desk.
-In an interview after the event,
Ishaq said that just because Babuna is
a physician doesn't mean that he is an
authority on genetics.
Katharine Bradley, a wildlife ecol-
ogy and conservation senior, said
she enjoyed the lecture but thought
Babuna used untrue propaganda.
She pointed to the students talking
with the speakers and said, "You're
not going to convince him of anything.
You can't do it with people who are
extreme like that." -
Vice President of Islam on Campus
Yaser All said his organization
brought Babuna to encourage debate
and provide a different perspective on
the issue.
"These views aren't necessarily the
views of Islam on Campus," he said.


After elections, some student senators will be required to attend local meetings


SENATE, from page 1


Sen. Roberto Hernandez said
these meetings are a great way to
get the student voice heard, and
senators will be able to act on is-
sues relevant to the student body.
The senators will also be re-
quired to attend their constituents'
residential board meetings.
In order to fulfill this atten-


dance requirement, each senator
will need to have appropriate
documentation to prove his or her
attendance.
For example, an agenda or
program of the meeting will have
to be signed by secretaries at the
meeting.
They will also document the
date and the time the senators
were present at the meeting.
Despite approval of the bill,


Covance needs healthy
ii participants to take
S part in a clinical
research study.






Qualified participants must be:
Healthy Males or Females
-Age 18 to 55
Non-tobacco users
Willing to make overnight stays
Participants will receive all study-related exams and investigational medication
at no cost. Compensation up to $3300 is available for time and participation.
Call Sun. Fri. for more information.

"The idea is that you as a
student step out there and
go represent your stu-
dents. I fully support this."
Roberto Hernandez
UF student senator

several senators expressed opposi-
tion toward its requirements.
Sen. Justin Bell said he doesn't


see the point in having someone in
the back of the room at a commis-
sion meeting who is not going to
express an opinion.
Sen. Jesse Beckles said it would
take too much time, as Senate
meetings take up all of Tuesday
evenings and other organizational
meetings often take up Sundays.
Hernandez said the program is
a chance for senators to do some-
thing effective.


S"The idea is that you as a stu-
dent step out there and go repre-
sent your students. I fully support
this," he said.
Robert Agrusa, chairman of
the Judiciary Committee, said, "I
feel like this is a fair compromise.
We're all here, we're all very cre-
ative."
The program might not solve
all problems, Agrusa said, but "at
least it's a start."

Editorial


Closing time

Today is your last chance

to make a difference
In case you have managed to elude the hordes of students
waving signs and handing out stickers, we're here to tell
you to vote. We've heard all the excuses before, so don't
try them.
"My one vote won't make a difference."
"I really don't care too much about Student
Government."
And our favorite: "I forgot."
If you haven't voted yet, put down this newspaper just
make sure you finish reading later and walk to your poll-
ing place. Most students vote at their college.
Sometimes we may bemoan how little faith we have in
SG, how many mistakes it makes or what we think it needs
to change. But we still realize that the only way we can enact
some of the changes we are so desperate for is to get out there
and vote.
Maybe you think the system is just fine as it is. In that
case, vote so thingswill stay the same.
Even if you're completely disenchanted with the students
involved in politics at UF, you should still vote for the three
referendums on the ballot. You don't have to vote for some
hoity-toity person who's just out to add a few lines to his or
her resume. Vote for the issues that matter.
We're not advocating that you cover yourself in stickers or
join the ranks passing out fliers. We avoid those people like
the plague, too. Just take 10 minutes out of your day to vote
for a few things that should be pretty important to every UF
student: $12 million. Who will represent you on campus, in
Tallahassee and in Washington, D.C. The environment, the
homeless and gender identity.
And you don't have to wear that damn "I Voted" sticker.


Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


Hey, big
you've got to be kid-
ding us. The Gator
Party spent nearly
$11,500 on its campaign?
This is one thing we agree
with the Pants Party about
- election spending is out
of control. Yooni Yi, Gator
Party's president, said that
capping campaign spend-
ing limits free speech of the
candidates.
Last time we checked,
wagging your tongue at
passers-by didn't cost a
dime.
So where did all that
money go?
Stickers, fliers, T-shirts
and tarps around campus
and on sorority and frater-
nity houses.
And of course, the ubiq-
uitous Facebook ads. For
the record, they did not


spender
inspire us to vote for those
senators do you think
anyone knows the names of
any candidates besides the
executive ones?
Pants capped its spend-
ing at $5,000, and actually
spent less than that.
A cap on elections spend-
ing will help level the play-
ing field between the rich
Greek kids and the penniless
independents.
OK, that's a slight exag-
geration. We know members
of both parties come from a
wide spectrum of economic
backgrounds.
But it seems that the party
that outspends the other
consistently walks away the
winner. With an election
spending cap, maybe we'll
finally see some real com-.
petition.

Column

Homeless deserve more than UF gives


Must commend the tenacity of all the people who sup-
port a student-run homeless shelter here in Gainesville.
Not only have they organized to a great degree, but
they've also pressed on despite the skepticism and apathy
of a university that would rather pretend that Gainesville
does not exist.
But Gainesville exists, and its problems are ultimately
UF's problems. I can't quite understand how a university
that is so deeply entrenched in the local economy can sit
back and declare it will have nothing to do with the town.
It's socially irresponsible, selfish and shortsighted.
What's the first thing that crosses your mind when you
see one of Gainesville's many homeless along University
Avenue? Perhaps you think they're lazy, shiftless failures.
Maybe you think they're all just drug addicts. Maybe you'd
rather not think about them at all.
That's a horrible mindset to have. Yes, homelessness
can sometimes be overcome with a little determination. It's
true that a lot of homeless people are under the influence
of drugs. But its also true that a lot of these people, due to
whatever circumstances, simply were not able to function
in today's society.
Should that really be held against them? Most impor-
tantly, do you really feel that you know so much about each
and every homeless person that you are entitled to judge
them all? I don't think so, and people who honestly feel that
way are just fooling themselves.
It amazes me how we as a society can spout all these
lofty ideals while contradicting ourselves. We love the idea
of aiding the rest of the world, yet-we're often reluctant to
aid those in our very neighborhoods.
Why is that? How is it that we can talk about spreading
"civilization" to other countries but can't even be civil to


one another? A
Consider this: The average
American lives only one pay-
check away from homelessness.
Excluding outside help which
Some people are not privy to it
Dan Burroughs could very well be your family on
letters@alligator.org the street next month. Shit hap-
pens.
One medical emergency is all
it would take to throw many people over the edge. It's not
like we have national health care.
I can see how UF administrators wouldn't care. The
areas of Gainesville most of them frequent aren't wanting
much economically. It's pretty easy for them to close their
eyes to the problem. But I'm amazed at how someone my
age can be so callous.
Most of you haven't subsisted on your own yet. Who are
you to say that the homeless are failures at life when you
haven't let go of your parents' teat?
We can't pass judgment on people because we think
they are a bunch of stupid bums. By no means does living
in the Land of Opportunity guarantee success or even the
ability to acquire it.
Perhaps some of them are con men or can indeed help
themselves. But you don't know them or the lives they've
lived. The idea of helping a fellow human should not be
confronted with contempt.
Don't point your finger in judgment; extend a helping
hand. That said, support the homeless shelter referendum.
It's the least you can do.

Hollywood betters Washington, D.C.


after Michael Scheuer, former
head of the CIA, said al-Qaida
would "detonate a nucleardevice
inside the United States," my roommate
suggested that an attack at the Academy
Awards' Kodak Theater would be a big-
ger devastation to American democracy
and culture than an attack on the White
House.
So is the world of politicalHollywood
hegemony. Beyond the fashion and
glamour, Hollywood turned its focus
and sent a message loud and dear: It's
the political vanguard.
Al Gore, Hollywood's new sweet-
heart, presented an Oscar to the planet:
The Academy officially went green.
Amid international concerns over global
warming, the film industry realized its
influence and told the people to be more
environmentally conscious.
More than 38 million people now


Kevin Reich know something
U-Wire needs to be done
something
Bush still doesn't believe. While the
House of Representatives still awaits
a canceled global warming summit,
Gore's film, "An Inconvenient Truth,"
won the Oscar for best documentary.
The Academy also rewarded film-
maker Ari Sandel for his live-action short
"West Bank Story." A parody of "West
Side Story," the movie is set among feud-
ing Israeli and Palestinian falafel stands.
Sandel made the film despite Israeli
attempts to stop it by dropping water
from helicopters on the crew. By reward-
ing him, Hollywood collectively showed
its gusto for international peace.
After Borat showed us how cultur-
ally backward we can be, it's no surprise
that these were the most international
Oscars ever. We saw breathtaking and
controversial movies from directors


like Stephen Frears, Alejandro Gonzalez
If~rritu, Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso
Cuar6n and Richard Eyre. While the
Bush administration so avidly practices
unilateralism, the film industry shows
us just how important the international
community is.
Filmmakers are storytellers. And
they've learned to use their art to sub-
versively promote global change. On
world issues, the directors, producers,
cinematographers and actors are the
ultimate lobbyists. They don't dance
around issues like politicians, anxious
about re-election. They tell it how it is.
American culture is our nation's best
asset, and with the film industry at the
helm, art necessitates political change.
An attack on the Kodak Theatre would
be devastating. Better to save George
Clooney than George Bush.
Kevin Reich is a student at
Northwestern University.


Letter to the Editor
Rowdy Reptiles for ticketholder priority
In response to Dan Treat's article about
how the University Athletic Association
needs a point system for basketball games, it
must be said there is a system for true fans to
get into the games. It is unfair of Mr. Treat to
put down the association when, as a senior,
he doesn't know the rules most freshmen
already know: It's called being a Rowdy
Reptile.
You go to eight games during the regular
season the first half of the season. The
second half of the season, you are designated
a Rowdy Reptile, and you can automatically
register for all the remaining games well be-
fore registration opens up for everyone.
Rowdy Reptiles are also eligible for postsea-
son tickets that others aren't.

Despite a late second-half rally against Tennessee

(25-5, 12-3 SEC) dropped their second. consecutive
game Tuesday night 86-76.

UF BASEBALL

LaPorta returns, aides rally for win


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org


STAMPA It looked like it was going to
be another disappointment for Gators fans.
Trailing 5-3 heading into the ninth in-
ning, host South Florida had ace Danny
Otero on the mound to close out the game,
and the crowd of 2,426 was rocking in an-
ticipation of a Bulls victory.
But Tuesday night was going to be dif-
ferent.
The Gators (6-6) came up with seven
runs in the ninth for a 10-5 win, the team's


first victory when trailing after eight in-
nings.
S"It's a huge win for
our team," UF coach
Pat McMahon said.
"Our guys have battled
through the course.
of this season. We've
battled through some in-
jury bugs, and we gave a
McMahon great effort tonight."
UF's first road game
also marked Matt LaPorta's return to the
lineup.
The former All-American first baseman


made a big contribution, going 2 for 3 with
a run and the game-tying RBI in the Gators'
ninth inning explosion.
LaPorta twisted his ankle Friday night
against Kent State and missed the last two
games but appeared as a designated hitter
against USF (9-2).
"I feel like my presence in the lineup is a
boost for the ball club," LaPorta said.
In the ninth, Avery Barnes led off with
a single and Jon Townsend reached on an
error after Otero threw a ball past his first
baseman.

Piling losses


raise red flags-
hey wanted a loss and got one ug-
lier than a decapitated, skinned
and limbless cadaver.
"I don't want to lose any more games
but if I can have it be just like last year,
maybe we come out.and lose (today)
and then win the rest of our games,"
forward Chris Richard said Monday.
No other Gator would have dared
employ this tone, right?
"If losses help us become more
inspired, if losses help us regain more
of our focus, you can (tolerate losing),"
Coach Billy Donovan said, also on
Monday.
How's that strategy working for
ya'?
What happened at Knoxville on
Tuesday night was disturbing, dis-
gusting, deplorable, disconcerting,
despicable a

lanastasis@alligator.org The way the
Gators played
Thursday night, you would have
thought their players held a pre-gam,'-
in-house meeting with Bobby Brown,
Snoop Dogg and Bob Marley's 13 chil-
dren.
UF dispensed more turnovers than a
pastry joint at peak operation, finishing
with 20.
UF looked lackadaisical and disin-
terested; if there ever was a red flag
entering the postseason tournaments,
it would be this inexplicable lack of
fire. Tennessee women's basketball
coach Pat Summitt, with her mid-game
cheerleading skit, displayed more killer
instinct than the Gators.
"You sense that Florida isn't ready
to fight," ESPN analyst Jay Bilas said
during halftime.
All this from a team that, two weeks
ago, seemed a lock for a No. 1 seed and
a Final Four encore.
All this from a team with at least
four future NBA players, one of which
is Joakim Noah, who has said he re-
turned for his junior season to defeat
Tennessee twice.
Tuesday night, Noah did not score

m According to the Knoxville
News-Sentinel, Dick Vitale
inadvertently revealed a conver-
sation with Coach Billy Donovan
on a radio show. Vitale said


Donovan told him any team that
selected Joakim Noah instead
of Al Horford in the NBA Draft
would be making a mistake.
Donovan denied saying it.

Second-half spurt falls short on Senior Night

BASKETBALL, from page 15

compared to the Gators' 42.9 clip.
When Tennessee's ball movement went
crisply, UF's passes flew wildly out of bounds.
The Vols committed only three turnovers to
the Gators' 11.
Joakim Noah played only 8 minutes of the
first half due to early foul trouble and things
did not go much better in the second half for
the forward.
Noah picked up his third foul 33 seconds
into the half yet continued to play, but scored
just 8 points. The Vols shot out like a rocket to
start the half, increasing their lead to 60-36.
Slowly, however, the Gators started to show
signs of life midway through the second half.
UF finally made defensive stops and flus-
tered the Vols. Noah and Horford chased
down balls. Corey Brewer stole passes. Lee
Humphrey and Taurean Green hit threes.
Walter Hodge's two free throws at 5:37 cut
the lead to 68-61 and capped UF's 21-4 spurt.
"We thought we had a chance," Humphrey
said. "The lead was so big, but we started get-
ting stops."
From there, the Vols held on to send Dane
Bradshaw out with a win on Senior Night.
Horford led the Gators with 17 points.
Brewer and Chris Richard added 12 a piece.
UF only has Kentucky on the schedule be-
fore the SEC Tournament, leaving little time to
find what the team's missing.
"If we want to do something special this
year, we need to get it back," Noah said. "Right
now, it's not there, and that's what sucks."


First baseman's status

unknown for weekend

BASEBALL, from page 15

Cole Figueroa then followed with a sacrifice that scored
Barnes and moved Townsend to third.
Then LaPorta came up with a chance to tie.
Down 0-2 in the count, LaPorta sent a double into left
field to score Townsend.
The Gators would take the lead later on in the inning on
a Matt den Dekker bases-loaded triple. -
"We had guys on base, two down and I
got a good pitch to hit," den Dekker said. "I
wanted to put the barrel on the ball and hit
it hard somewhere."
Baseball At first, it looked like LaPorta's return
would have no impact on the squad.
The Gators got into trouble in the third
inning when the Bulls jumped out in front, scoring two
runs one on a wild pitch by UF freshman starter Kevin
Chapman.
The Bulls lead would later grow to 4-1 in the fifth in-
ning.
It wasn't until the ninth inning that UF would take the
lead back.
The team will now turn its attention toward its upcom-
ing weekend series against George Washington.
McMahon said that LaPorta is still day-to-day, and the
team will make a decision later if he is going to play against
the Colonials.
But LaPorta is just hoping the squad will rally around
this win and use it as motivation.
"It's a huge win for us," LaPorta said. "Especially in the
ninth inning, just to find it deep down inside of us, that te-
nacity to come back and win.
"That's great for this ball dub."


BULLPEN, from page15

until 11:42 remained in the second
half. He has exceeded 10 points
just once in the last seven games.
Meanwhile, Taurean Green has
been messier than an overloaded
Sloppy Joe. At one point in the


first half, Green committed three
consecutive turnovers and bad
ones at that.
Corey Brewer is out of control,
Lee Humphrey has yet to fully
regain his midseason form and
Walter Hodge cannot compensate
for a myriad of lifeless players.
Al Horford seems like the only


one left with a heartbeat.
Remember the Goosebumps
book "Be Careful What You Wish
For?" In it, klutz Samantha Byrd
wishes she were the best player
on her junior high basketball team.
She becomes that but only because
the other players lose all of their
basketball skills.


This is Horford, an intense,
passionate monster the only
UF player who still seems like he
wants to put a body on opponents
and break a meaningful sweat. But
even he looks lost on a team that
seems to get an incredible rush
out of playing the "Let's See How
Much of a Lead We Can Give the


Other Team Before Trying" game.
Donovan speaks of surrender-
ing layups and 3-pointers like a
Reverend would of Beelzebub. But
consider that 17 of Tennessee's 20
field goals in the first half were, in
fact, layups, dunks or threes.
Florida basketball -
faaaaaaaantastic!
