Anti-war protesters march on Tigert Hall

By NICOLE SAFER
Alligator Contributing Writer

It was a scene right out of the '60s.
People wore cutoff jeans and tinted aviator sunglasses as
they spray-painted antiwar messages on signs and T-shirts.
Peace signs were sponge-brushed on faces, drawn on shoul-
ders and waved in the air with spread fingers.
Amid cries of, "This is what democracy looks like!" and,
"What do we want? Peace! When do we want it? Now!" about '
500 people, mostly UF students, marched across UF's campus ,. m,-
in protest of the war in Iraq. F.


"We feel that the government has a responsi-
bility to listen to its citizens."
Tina Steiger
Students for a Democratic Society member

The army of protesters went to Tigert Hall to call for the
university administration to publicly oppose the war and
cease research that benefits the war effort. The demonstration,
organized by the Gainesville Area Students for a Democratic
Society, was part of a nationwide protest on about 70 college
campuses to mark the war's fourth anniversary.
Tina Steiger, an SDS member and UF sophomore, helped
organize the event. Its purpose, Steiger said, was to bring
students and community members together in a grassroots
effort to convince the government to pull out the troops. The
modem-day SDS is a revival of the national organization that
formed in the 1960s and was in charge of many Vietnam War
protests.
"We feel that the government has a responsibility to listen
to its citizens," Steiger said. "If the government isn't respon-
sible anymore, then we can't call it a democracy."

Sen. John Kerry canceled his UF
town-hall forum scheduled for Friday
because he said he will be busy on
Capitol Hill that day, the head of UF's
speakers bureau said.
Accent Chairman Andrew Brown
said Kerry called him Tuesday to apolo-
gize about canceling and promised
Brown that he would come to UF soon.
Brown didn't know if the forum would
be rescheduled for this semester.
Kerry told Brown that Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid mandated

to present a petition to UF President Bernie Machen that would declare the university publicly opposed to the war.


that all Democratic senators stay in
Washington, D.C., Friday to vote on a
number of bills, Brown said.
About 600 students picked up
tickets Tuesday for the forum, which
was scheduled for the roughly 800-
seat ,University Auditorium, said
Erica Lopez, a box office
On supervisor at the Phillips
Campus Ceniter for the Performing
Arts. Brown said he
wasn't sure if those tickets could be

Kerry requested the event be held at
the auditorium because he spoke there
about 35 years ago in a speech protest-
ing the Vietnam War, Brown said.


STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Pants senator disqualified


By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Writer

The Student Government Supreme Court
ruled after a hearing Tuesday to disqualify
the Pants Party from the Spring SG elec-
tions.
As a result, Pants' lone winner, Alan
Passman, won't be allowed to fill the Student
Senate seat he won.
The hearing was the result of complaints
filed by former student senator and Gator
Party supporter John Clayton Brett, who ac-
cused Pants of passing out "I Voted" stickers
to benefit Pants and potentially inhibiting
voters from siding with Gator.
In a 3-1 vote, the court decided that dis-
qualification was the only punishment that
would send a message to discourage future
candidates from violating elections law.
The opinion states, "Pants Party lead-


ership undermined the authority of the
Elections Commission and the integrity of
the electoral process."
Pants members aren't disqualified from
running in future elections,
according to the court's
opinion.
Justice John Campbell,
the only dissenting mem-
ber of the court, wrote
in a statement that he
S believed the court's deci-
Passman sion to prevent Passman
from taking his seat was
unconstitutional.
He wrote, "Passman was elected by
majority vote via a democratic process.
Passman, not the Pants Party, is being pun-
ished."

New SG senators sworn in


By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer
jblaz@alligator.org

The Spring Student Government elections results
were validated Tuesday night at a Student Senate
.meeting, with the Gator Party taking 44 of the 47
open Senate seats and all three executive positions.
SG Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst present-
ed the results, which were approved unanimously
by the Senate. He said that one seat was left vacant
due to the SG Supreme Court's disqualification of
the Pants Party's only winner, Alan Passman.
The new senators were sworn in Tuesday and
were to elect their president and president pro-tem-
pore, but the results weren't available by press tine.
Many senators who will not be returning thanked
others and shared stories about their time in Senate.
Outgoing Senate President Josh Weiss thanked
many senators and talked about his experiences.
"I love knowing that I'm able to connect so many
people," he said. "The opportunity to serve as your
Senate president is an experience I'll never forget."
Sen. Robert Agrusa, the judiciary committee
chairman, has been campaigning for Weiss' position.
He is the only one who was nominated for the spot.
"I feel like I have the ability to reach out to unmo-
tivated people and get people excited," he said. "I


want to bring more energy back to the chambers."
If chosen to head the Senate, Agrusa said he
thinks his experience with student organizations will
help him reach his goals, which include better com-
munication with students, more tangible legislation
and the creation of a committee to improve athletic
ticket distribution.
Agrusa also hopes to reach his goal of better com-
munication by making Senate meetings accessible on
the Internet.

"The opportunity to serve as your
Senate president is an experience I'll
never forget."
Josh Weiss
outgoing SG Senate president

The validation of the results, which was supposed
to take place before Spring Break, was delayed until
Tuesday because the Elections Commission was
waiting on the Supreme Court's decision on what to
do with Pants and Passman.
Although it disqualified Passman, the court rec-
ommended that he apply for the position again.
The court's decision "does not disqualify any
Pants Party members for applying for the vacant
seat," Aungst said.

Machen not in office to meet protesters


PROTEST, from page i


The two-and-a-half-hour demonstration be-
gan at 1 p.m. as participants left their classrooms
for the Reitz Union Colonnade. Fists pounded the
air and flags caught the wind as a steady thread of -
people stretched across the Plaza of the Americas
and connected the Hub to Tigert.
As they arrived at Tigert, they piled onto
the front steps and hung signs that read, "End
the war," and, "War is terrorism" over railings.
The volume grew with the crowd, as people
were backed up nearly to Southwest 13th Street.
A UF official stood at the front door, holding it
open for just one protester to bring the petition
upstairs to Machen's office.
Nonetheless, about 10 streamed in when the
door was opened. As they settled in the office's
waiting room, they were quickly informed by
Beth Boone, Machen's executive assistant, that he
was out of town.
As skeptical protesters pleaded with the sec-
retary, UF spokesman Steve Orlando was sent
to help mediate. Orlando agreed to help set up
a time for the protesters to meet with Machen
to discuss the petition, and the protesters were
escorted out.
"That ain't right!" protesters yelled outside.
Richard Gutierrez, a UF English and history
junior and a protest organizer, suggested the mass
march to the National Guard recruiting office on
Northwest 13th Street.


About one-fifth of the marchers left, and the
remaining continued on. After crossing West
University Avenue, they spilled onto the right
northbound lane of 13th Street, chanting "Whose
streets? Our streets!" and dodging traffic.
The group was denied access to the office and
demonstrated on the road for about 10 minutes.
"They have locked their doors on us; they do
not want a dialogue with us," Steiger said through
the megaphone. "To the Plaza of the Americas!"
Protesters marched back to campus chanting,
"Fire Bernie!" and, "No more war!" against a
backdrop of car horns.
Alex Ingram, a student sena-
Student tor at SFCC, offered bagged ice
Activism to the hot and thirsty marchers as
they trekked back to the plaza.
Ingram was impressed by the
protest, he said, but thought it could have been
stronger and was disappointed that Machen
wasn't there to meet with them.
At the plaza, protest organizer and UF fresh-
man Joe Richard congratulated the crowd on the
protest.
"This is the beginning of a series of actions we
will take to restore democracy," Richard said.
The idea of marching on the ROTC building
was suggested but quickly fizzled among the
tired and hungry protesters.
"What are we doing?" one yelled. "Getting
lunch!" answered another. "Let's smoke!" said
a third. Others exclaimed, "To Tim and Terry's!"
and, "Free Gatorade at the infirmary!"


Passman can apply again


PANTS, from page 1


At the beginning of the hearing,
Jesus Suarez, the Gator represen-
tative, said Gator didn't want
Passman to be disqualified for the
actions of others in Pants.
But Suarez changed his mind
after a sworn statement written by
Passman was read aloud and stated
that he had originally passed out
"I Voted" stickers, recommending
that the entire party including
Passman be disqualified.
However, Passman also wrote
that he stopped immediately after
the SG Elections Commission is-


sued a cease-and-desist order to
Pants members about the stickers.
Suarez said Gator was unaware
of Passman's involvement in pass-
ing out the stickers and said the
party thought he had nothing to
do with the incident. Chief Justice
Jessica Gavrich said Passman's seat
in the Senate will be considered va-
cant, but Passman is not prohibited
from filling the vacant seat.
Passman said he is thinking of
reapplying and that he was disap-
pointed with the court.
"I felt that the truth of (the
sworn statement)- was strong
enough for them to make an in-
formed decision," he said.

Student gets Greeced up during Spring Break


She studied abroad through a UF program


Editor's note: This is the final
article in a three-part series on
how students spent their Spring
Break.
By JESSIE COLEMAN
Alligator Writer
jcoleman@alligator.org

Justine Koshes bumped and
bounced in the back seat of a taxi
that-bobbed and weaved through
the Athens traffic like an agile boxer
dodging the blows of his opponent.
With her seat belt buckled and
hands gripping the edge of the seat,
Koshes learned her first lesson about
Greek culture after less than an hour
in the country: Take the taxi at your
own risk.
Koshes, UF sophomore, vis-
ited nine cities in Greece with her
Olympic History in Greece class
during Spring Break.
The class, which met for two
hours every week, and the week-
long excursion were part of UF's
three-credit Spring Break study-
abroad program in Greece.

"I'm glad I did it because
it was amazing, and I can
never get that experience
again."
Justine Koshes
UF student

"I love to travel," Koshes said. "I
figured students should definitely
take advantage of the opportunity
that they have to study abroad. I
paid for my plane ticket, and that
was about it."
Money from the Bright Futures
and Florida Prepaid programs cov-
ered the cost of tuition and housing.
Koshes spent about $1,000 on her
plane ticket, and another $550 on
food and souvenirs.
Although Koshes had researched
the Olympic Games and Athenian
culture in class before the trip, her
adventures in Greece taught her les-


sons that she hadn't found in class.
Shortly after 12.5 hours of flying,
and still shaky from the jerky taxi
ride, Koshes encountered Greek
culture lesson No. 2 in. her hotel
bathroom: Greeks do not flush their
toilet paper, they throw it in the
trash can.
The learning continued a few
hours later when Koshes ordered
a Greek salad at an outdoor cafe.
She was surprised when her server
brought out a bowl of chopped to-
mato, onion and cucumber tossed
in an oil-and-vinegar sauce and
topped with a thick slab of fresh feta
cheese lesson No. 3.
"Greek salads do not have let-
tuce. I learned that the hard way,"
Koshes said. "Basically, it was like a
bowl of toppings."
Despite the confusion, Koshes
devoured the fresh vegetables,
which she said were more flavorful
than vegetables in the United States.
After eating the salad, she was unex-
pectedly full.
Unlike the fast pace of meals in
the United States, Koshes lingered
over her meals for about two hours
n Greece, she said.
Sometimes sipping an Ouzo, a
licorice-tasting liquor and Sprite
drink, Koshes sat at outdoor caf4s
and watched street vendors who
sold fake Louis Vuitton and Gucci
bags.
Koshes said Greek people
seemed more fashion-conscious
than Americans, Her tour-guide bus
driver wore a Versace sports shirt,
leather shoes, and brand-name jeans
and sunglasses.
Koshes, who wore jeans and lay-
ered tops, as the temperatures fluc-
tuated between 50 and 70 degrees,
enjoyed observing the brightly
dressed Greeks, who were often
adorned in loud yellows and crisp
whites. In one shop, Koshes saw a
mannequin wearing yellow tights,
a denim miniskirt, a bright yellow
and black top with loosely flowing
sleeves and a thick'black belt fas-
tened around the waist.


"You would never see someone
walking the streets with that on, but
I could definitely see it in Greece,"
Koshes said.
In addition to observing the nu-
ances of Greek life, Koshes visited
historical sites, many of which were
reduced to ruins.
She and her classmates woke at
6 a.m. every day and spent most
mornings touring cities and archi-
tectural monuments.
Of all the buildings, the athletic
stadiums impressed Koshes most.
At a stadium in Delphi, she was
awed at the still-intact marble sta-
dium seating.
But her favorite jaunt was a last-
minute addition to her itinerary
One day, Koshes took a spontaneous
train ride to Pyrgos, a busy commer-
cial town in Western Greece.
Lindsay Lucado, an exercise


physiology junior, accompanied her
to the small town.
"Most people didn't speak any
English, and we didn't know any
Greek besides the basic hello and
thank you," Lucado said. "So it was
definitely a cultural immersion."
Koshes and Lucado welcomed
the chance to experience authentic
Greek culture, a change from the
tourist-friendly cities that bordered
most popular sightseeing spots.
In a small caf6 with only one
English menu, Koshes ate the best
pizza she'd ever had. It was hand-
tossed, splattered with basil-tomato
sauce and topped with a generous
portion of crushed tomatoes, mush-
rooms and melted mozzarella.
She bargained for a tank top
with funky shapes and designs that
captured Greek style, convincing the
begrudging shopkeeper to accept 25
euros instead of the original price
of 30.


She said the people in Pyrgos
were less friendly than Greek people
in more touristy cities.
"In Pyrgos, they were on the go.
They weren't very smiley," Koshes
said. "They didn't go out of their
way to help us in the stores."
But the constant travel and sight-
seeing took its toll. After Koshes'
excursion to Pyrgos, a sore throat
and fever that began on Wednesday
stunted her ability to travel. She still
attended the morning tours but was
less active in the afternoons.
She left Greece on Saturday
morning, her duffle bag packed
tight with the little pieces of Greece
she had collected, including the cus-
tom-made T-shirt with her name in
Greek letters and a Greek flag.
"We did something every day. It
was very tiring," Koshes said. "But
when I look back at it, I'm glad I did
it because it was amazing, and I can
never get that experience again."

Editorial


Pantless

SG Supreme Court

decision unfair
Alan Passman, the lone Pants Party Senate seat winner
from the Spring Student Government elections, lost his
ants Tuesday evening.
The SG Supreme Court voted 3-1 to disqualify the would-
be engineering graduate student senator, along with the Pants
Party as a whole. The court said it wants to set a precedent
that election codes must be followed and that the Election
Commission must be taken seriously when it issues a cease-
and-desist order. This is the first time a case like this has come
before the court. But there is a difference between setting prec-
edent and wrongly ousting a mostly innocent bystander.
It's one thing to disqualify the party as a whole, even though
at this point it's really more of a symbolic gesture than anything.
But to strip the senator-elect of his seat the same night all the
other senators-elect, bubbly and excited in their new suits and
dresses, are sworn in is just cruel and unusual punishment.
Passman said in a sworn statement that he did not pass out
"I Voted" stickers after the cease-and-desist order was issued.
It's not fair for him to be punished for following the rules just
because some chose not to.
Justice John Campbell, who voted that Passman should be
able to keep his seat, nailed it in his letter of dissent: "Passman
is truly 'guilty by association.'"
The majority of the court missed its mark. It would be a dif-
ferent story if the court were setting a valid precedent we're
not disputing that handing out "I Voted" stickers in violation of
a cease-and-desist order wasn't the best decision. But Passman
didn't violate that order. He should not have lost his seat.
One thing the court did get right, however, is its decision to
allow Passman to re-apply for the vacant seat he already won.
We hope he does. And we hope that everyone else refrains from
applying in protest of the court's unfair decision.


Those damn jobs


Sho does he think
he is?
Sen. John Kerry
canceled his Accent-spon-
sored town-hall style speech
because, of all reasons, his
commitment to his job.
See, that's exactly what's
wrong with politics today.
These senators choose to
vote for things like bills in
Congress instead of speaking
to students and American
-citizens. Apparently a slew
of votes is enough to keep
the high-profile politician in
Washington, D.C.
We should not stand for
this. This is the man who tes-
tified to Congress decades
ago about the atrocities oc-
curring in Vietnam. We say
atrocities are being commit-
ted today here at UF.
If the man can't even keep


an unpaid publicity appoint-
ment, why should we trust
him in oir Senate?
Or maybe we should
view this as a good thing
- who in Gainesville would
vote for him now, if he de-
cides to run again for presi-
dent? Certainly not us. First
he flip-flopped on Iraq, now
he flip-flops on his tour ap-
pearances. Tsk, tsk, Senator.
And w4o's going to tell
us that if we don't do a good
job in school, we might end
up "stuck in Iraq"?
Kerry called Accent
Chairman Andrew Brown
personally and promised
to reschedule his visit. We
look forward to hearing
him speak when there aren't
more, ahem, important
things happening on Capitol
Hill.

Column

Even small doses of censorship bad


The many resident protesters here at UF and in
Gainesville should be glad they don't live in an-
other part of the world. In some countries, events
like Tuesday's protest rally or even the cheap shots
Alligator editorials take at the Bush administration
sometimes would hardly exist.
Take Venezuela, for instance. About this time last
month, a court demanded that a local newspaper and
one of its columnists pay $45,000 for poking fun at
President Hugo Chavez.
Imagine how deep in debt some of us would be if we
were fined every time we ragged on ol' Dubya. Thank
God we live in America, eh?
Of course, I can't say that without a bit of sarcasm.
You see, while everyone should be grateful we live in a
country where we can more or less say what we want,
a lot of institutions are slowly trying to encroach upon
the right of free speech. Some of those institutions are
the court systems that were supposedly constructed to
protect these rights.
Perhaps this will hit closer to home: The U.S.
Supreme Court is hearing arguments for a case in which
an Alaska high school principal suspended a senior for
displaying a sign reading, "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" across
the street from the school.
However you feel about the incident, the truth is that
rulings made in this case and others like it will lead to
some serious changes in what you or I define as "free
speech."
I find it disturbing that not only can our speech be
curtailed and limited in the public sphere but also that
our governing bodies actively and aggressively support
such policies. Censorship has always been an issue, but


it's becoming more obvious that
there really is a limit on what
we're allowed to say.
No matter how you cut it,
censorship is wrong. No mat-
ter how much you try to deny
Dan Burroughs it, there is a line distinguishing
letters@alligator.org what you are and are not al-
lowed to say. Sadly, that line is
becoming more defined as more
people are scrutinized for the things they say.
I can't help but laugh when I hear people try to
defend censorship in any of its forms. Whether it's
sex, vulgar language as highly ambiguous as that
is or controversial political discourse, the Federal
Communications Commission and similar organiza-
tions seek to control the public media.
On a shallow level, some argue that certain words
and images pervert and corrupt our youth. Well, it's the
responsibility of parents, not mass media, to make sure
their kids have a proper understanding of the world.
On a deeper level, some argue that certain words and
images demoralize and ultimately hurt the fabric of our
society. But the bigger crime lies in depriving the public
of an honest and unadulterated view of reality.
While I believe that there is a gray area in almost
any argument, censorship is not one of them. Half-cen-
sorship leaves too much room to slowly push toward
full censorship. On no level is it right to regulate what
goes on TV, radio, newspaper or even a high school
student's poster.

Letter to the Editor
Iraq war protest different from Vietnam
In his Monday column, Patrick Barrett
expressed opposition to students' decision to
protest the Iraq war Tuesday. His premises
were not without logic.
Forty years ago, the Vietnam War provided
a basis that protesters compare to our situa-
tion in Iraq. Without delving too deeply into
the history of evidence surrounding this, we
should remember the following:


First, the Vietnam "War" (no war declara-
tion was ever technically made; however, I af-
firm that the Vietnam conflict was truly a war)
had an extensive draft, and tens of thousands
of those who died did not voluntarily sign up
for the mission.
Second, that "war" was started due to a
fear of communism, which is comparable to
the fear of terrorism, and France's political
pressure to save its colony. Unlike today's war,


however, our nation was neither threatened
directly nor indirectly by either conventional
or nuclear attack from the Vietnamese nation.
Many similarities exist between these two
wars. It is for these reasons, however, that we
must be cautious. Ho Chi Minh the North
Vietnamese leader and his commanders
wrote and spoke about how the antiwar pro-
tests often gave his troops hope and inspira-
tion when they were too-often decimated in


battle. After our Vietnam withdrawal, thou-
sands of Vietnamese were "cleansed" from
the peninsula.
If we leave Iraq now, we will all see such
partisan cleansing in this volatile region. We
must research our past and understand our
mistakes to knowledgeably exercise.our inher-
ent rights of speech and protest.
Matthew Forhan

Editorial Notebook

Where is the passion of protest from the Vietnam era?


Americans from all political
leanings have said for years
that the war in Iraq is the
Middle Eastern equivalent of the
Vietnam War. They have a point. It
is internationally unpopular, and
there is no exit strategy. Add to that
the number of American lives lost
- lives that even some Republicans
say have been wasted.
So if this is another Vietnam,
where are all the student protesters?
Tuesday, the Gainesville chapter
of Students for a Democratic Society,
the emblematic student group of
the 1960s, led an antiwar protest


of about 500 students and faculty
members. Four years after the war
began, the group held painted
signs and filed toward Tigert Hall
to request changes in policy from
the closest thing to a political entity,
UF's administration.
Back in the day, radical members
of the society blew up government
buildings to get Uncle Sam's atten-
tion. That's a little extreme and I
don't advocate violence, but can't
we find some middle ground? Most
graduating seniors were still in
high school when we first invaded
Baghdad.


Leigh Shapiro Over the
Editorial Notebook last half-cen-
tury in demo-
letters@alligator.org cratic, educat-
ed societies,
students were traditionally the most
vociferous activists for social and
political change. They often have
the freedom of adulthood without
fiscal and time commitments like
mortgages and families. The youth
are said to be blessed with the star-
ry-eyed idealism that leads them to
believe they can affect change.
But I worried our generation has
lost that idealism. We have more


faith in "The Daily Show" than the
nightly news those "Stewart/
Colbert 08" bumper stickers are real.
We're more worried about the inva-
sion of privacy by Facebook than by
the FBI.
Sure, a few student groups like
SDS and 400,000 Faces care enough
to hold signs and yell on the Plaza
of the Americas, but most of us pass-
ersby can't hear through the shield
of our white iPod earbuds.
UF has more than 50,000 stu-
dents, many of whom oppose the
war. However, the most visible ac-
tivists are the Gainesville locals on


University Avenue, whom most stu-
dents barely deign to mock as they
drive by. Will future administrations
be accountable at all if our genera-
tion never takes up the torch?
Students have successfully
called for political change not just
in America but in France, Iran,
Indonesia and Eastern Europe, too.
Not to promote the same cynicism
that I'm criticizing here, but I hope
that the reason UF students don't try
to do the same isn't outright apathy.

more. She is a member of the
Alligator editorial board.

UF BASEBALL

Gators fail to record clutch hits in loss at Stetson


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

DELAND Inconsistency has been the
theme of the year for the UF baseball team.
The last few innings of Tuesday night's 4-3
loss to Stetson proves that point.
In the seventh and eighth innings, the
Gators had chances to tie the game but failed
to come through in front of a record crowd of
2,975 at Melching Field.
"It's a tough loss," said shortstop Cole,
Figueroa. "We know we all work hard. We just
got to get it together."
In the seventh, UF (11-13 1-2 SEC) was
down by one run with a runner on third and
senior slugger Matt LaPorta at the plate.
The Gators had already scored two runs in
the inning, and momentum had swung their
way.
But the first baseman was unable to come


up with a hit and struck out to end the inning.
In the next frame, the Gators had runners
on first and second with one out when catcher
Cody Neer drove a pitch deep into left-center
that looked like it would fall for a double be-
fore Hatters center fielder Shane Jordan made
a running catch.
Senior designated hitter Austin Pride, who
advanced from second to third on the play,
was later thrown out after an appeal that
brought UF coach Pat McMahon out of the
dugout.
"(Pride) did not come off the bag early,"
McMahon said. "But obviously we don't make
that call. The umpire felt he made the correct
call, and he's the boss in that situation."
UF hitters struggled for most of the game
against Stetson freshman Robby Donovan,
who held the Gators to two runs in 6 1/3 in-
nings of work.
Figueroa was the bright spot of the evening
for the offense, going 3 for 4.


Outfielder Brian Leclerc also continued to
hit the ball well, going 2 for 4 and scoring one
run. He has been on a tear of late, getting 12
hits in his last 17 at-bats.
"You could make a defensive high-
light reel out of today's game for
both clubs."
Pat McMahon
UF baseball coach

"That's a real positive sign for us," said
McMahon on Lederc's hitting. "He has con-
tinued to work hard and get better."
Stetson's offense, on the other hand, got off
to a fast start before fading late.
The Hatters scored all four of their runs
in the first two innings off UF freshman Clint
Franklin, who was making his first career
start.
He would last just three innings, giving up


four runs.
The bullpen, however, would keep F in
the game and threw six scoreless innings.
The Gators were also kept alive by superb
defense.
The team did not commit an error on the
evening, and LaPorta made a diving catch to
rob Stetson second baseman Jeremy Cruz of
an extra-base hit before diving into first base
to complete a double play. a
"You could make a defensive highlight reel
out of today's game for both dubs," McMahon
said.
But in the end, the Gators' defense and
bullpen could not overcome a lackluster of-
fensive performance.
Even though he has a nine-game hitting
streak, Figueroa is more worried about his
team, which has dropped six of its last eight
contests.
"I'm hitting the ball well, but I'd trade those
hits in for some wins right now," he said.


Horford, Humphrey close in on UF double-double, 3-point records


HOOPS, from page 16

venate in time for tipoff.
While in New Orleans, forward
Al Horford said the players slept
in Saturday morning and were
given the privilege of a virtually
stress-free day.
"Coach gave us a lot of free
time to hang out and do whatever
we wanted," Horford said. "Then


we practiced and came back and
ate dinner. Then we relaxed, and
he told us to watch a movie if we
want or whatever. Between meals
we might watch film, but he
doesn't want to overwhelm us."
But Donovan knows the team
is capable of managing the scout-
ing reports from both teams.
"Our guys this year are very
intelligent guys," he said. "They
absorb and retain information
well. You can give them a lot, and


they can handle

"Our players
do a good job
of paying at-
tention to what
we teach .them,
S and I think that
Donovan can lend itself
to being an ad-
vantage."

RECORD WATCH: Horford is creep-


ing up the ranks of UF's single-
season double-double .leaders.
The junior forward is tied for
third after earning his 15th dou-
ble-double of the season Friday
against Jackson State in the first
round of the tournament.
"Horford needs four more
double-doubles to slide into the
top spot and break Bob Smyth's
1975-76 record of 18.
Senior Lee Humphrey is four


3-pointers away from becoming
the new career leader in 3-point
field goals made.
The record is currently held by
Brett Nelson, who tallied 274 from
1999-2003.
Humphrey recently broke the
record for the most consecutive
games scoring a 3-pointer.
The sharpshooter sank his
34th against Jackson State and
advanced the streak to 35 in UF's
win against Purdue.


Three new QBs vie


to back up Tebow

FOOTBALL, from page 16


right now. We have, I think, seven seniors. And then I
believe there's eight juniors. That's awful."
Meyer is probably overstating the problem, but it
is a problem nonetheless.
The Gators must be anchored by undercassmen
next season.
In 2006, many of UF's freshmen contributed by
default.
The others hitched a free ride along the way
"A lot of these guys woke up on third base and
never hit a triple," Meyer said. "All of a sudden
they're holding these crystal balls up, and getting
measured for rings and (shaking) the
President of the United States' hand
without going through three years of
what some consider torture we call
Football it player development."
To add depth, the Gators are enter-
taining position changes, especially at comer.
Running back Markus Manson and incoming
freshman receiver Joe Haden could switch to comer,
although nothing has been decided yet.
Of course, all is not gloomy in Gator Nation.
UF should'field one of the nation's most prolific
attacks.
Led by quarterback Tim Tebow, the Gators have
enough quality receivers and offensive linemen to
field two competitive offenses.
Tebow will likely concede some playing to two of
UF's new quarterbacks: freshmen John Brantley and
Cameron Newton and junior college transfer Bryan
Waggener.
Either Brantley or Newton will likely redshirt.
Despite the good, bad and everything in between,
fans want to know if UF has any chance of repeating.
"I wish I could stand up here and say that we can
make another run at this title," Meyer said. "I don't
know. I have no idea, but it's so farfetched."


GONZO, from page 16

To prove they have this season won't
be easy.
The team leaders Brandon Siler,
Jemalle Cornelius and Chris Leak are
gone.
SLast season's stellar defense, with
the exception of defensive end Derrick
Harvey, has been replaced with unproven
backups.
There will be no more Reggie Nelson
highlights, no more "Eraser" on the Gators
defense.
Every position but the offensive line en-
ters this spring with loads of questions.
Can quarterback Tim Tebow lead the
team?
Will a running back ever come to frui-
tion under Meyer?
Who on earth will fill the defensive
void for the Gators?
Meyer is on his way to building an elite
program.
A championship has brought in money,
which will help financial endeavors as UF
builds new facilities and improves old
ones.
Recruiting was stellar again, and coach-
ing thus far has been the same.
Most of the talk this season will sur-
round Tebow, whose heroics last year
showed glimpses of greatness.
But it's up to Meyer, who has-the criti-
cal task of making UF a consistent title con-
tender, much like Spurrier did more than a
decade ago.
So was last year the start of something
great, or was it merely a Cinderella story?
Only time will tell.

Coaches keep Elite Eight in mind

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

With three days of practice before its
game on Friday night, the UF men's basket-
ball team will undoubtedly be well-versed in
fifth-seeded Butler's idiosyncrasies.
It's the second game that could trip the-
Gators up in the NCAA Tournament.
If UF (31-5) defeats the Bulldogs (29-6) and
advances to the Elite Eight, it will have just
more than 24 hours to recover, refocus and
register information about its next game.
"It's crazy because you only have one day
to prepare for that second
day," guard Walter Hodge
said. "The coaches will be
watching film, but we won't
Men's watch anything (before
Basketball Saturday)."
The Gators would face
either No. 3 seed Oregon or
No. 7 seed UNLV, the lowest seed remaining_
in the tournament.
Because players have to focus on Butler,
it's up to .the assistant coaches to acquire the
most information possible on both potential
opponents.
In the case of this weekend's potential
second game, assistants began anaylzing
video Monday. One studied Oregon and the
other UNLV.
Each coach will break down the footage *
while the Gators prepare for Butler.
If UF wins, the staff will condense the ma-
teriSl about Sunday's opponent to give the
CliffsNotes version to the players.
"I would say the team doesn't have as
much information (as the coaches)," UF
coach Billy Donovan said. "You've got basi-
cally an hour and some film sessions to get in
what the most key points are."

Meyer must prove he can stay on top in third year


W hen Urban Meyer raised the na-
tional championship trophy in
January, his work at UF wasn't
done.
That monumental accomplishment
was just the first albeit huge step
toward building a consistent football
program.
The Ron Zook memories were washed
away that fateful night in Glendale, Ariz.,
and the swagger that once existed when
Steve Spurrier roamed the sidelines in
the Swamp returned.
Once again, the Gators are in. college
football's limelight.
Now it's Meyer's job to keep them
thew, something he never saw through
in his previous head-coaching gigs.

year," Meyer said. "We have an obliga-

The Gators lost a lot of talent from

Fresh faces


to carry UF


in spring

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

The national championship rings are
still rolling in.
Monday, the team visited with
President Bush at the White House.
If UF coach Urban Meyer had it his
way, the Gators' national championship
dream would never end.
"Everybody asks, 'How much time
are you taking away from it? Do you
need some time to relax?'" Meyer said.
"The answer is: I do not want to get
away. I wish it would last forever."
Unfortunately for Meyer, the de-
fending champions have already been
dismantled.
Nearly every-im-
pact player on UF's
suffocating defense
has graduated or de-
cided to go pro.
So have offensive
weapons Chris Leak,
Dallas Baker and
Meyer Jemalle Cornelius.
Today with the
start of spring practice, Meyer begins a
different challenge than the one he un-
dertook a year ago.
Just don't mention the words "re-
build" or "sustain" around the coach, or
he might snap.
"If you're sustaining, you're going
backwards and losing," Meyer said.
"We're building, we're growing, we're
moving. We're not enjoying; we're try-
ing to build upon it."
This won't be easy.
Many of the defensive players UF
will rely upon in 2007 have yet to attend
senior prom, never mind move into
dorms. This figures to create a dilemma
during spring camp.
For example, with Wondy Pierre-
Louis and Markihe Anderson being
'the only healthy returning cornerbacks
(Jacques Rickerson is recovering from
arthroscopic knee surgery), how will
Meyer prep his deep wide receiver
corps?
"We're not a good team," Meyer
said. "We're in a little bit of a train wreck

People wore cutoff jeans and tinted aviator sunglasses as they spray-painted antiwar messages on signs and T-shirts. Peace signs were sponge-brushed on faces, drawn on shoulders and waved in the air with spread fingers. Amid cries of, "This is what democracy looks like!" and rAj "What do we want? Peace! When do we want it? Now!" about 500 people, mostly UF students, marched across UF's campus h in protest of the war in Iraq. "We feel that the government has a responsibility to listen to its citizens." Tina Steiger Students for a Democratic Society member The army of protesters went to Tigert Hall to call for the university administration to publicly oppose the war and cease research that benefits the war effort. The demonstration, organized by the Gainesville Area Students for a Democratic Society, was part of a nationwide protest on about 70 college campuses to mark the war's fourth anniversary. Tina Steiger, an SDS member and UF sophomore, helped organize the event. Its purpose, Steiger said, was to bring students and community members together in a grassroots effort to convince the government to pull out the troops. The modem-day SDS is a revival of the national organization that formed in the 1960s and was in charge of many Vietnam War protests. "We feel that the government has a responsibility to listen to its citizens," Steiger said. "If the government isn't responsible anymore, then we can't call it a democracy." SEE PROTEST, PAGE 4 Nicole Safker / Alligator Staff Protesters gather on the steps of Tigert Hall on Tuesday afternoon during an anti-war demonstration. They were there to present a petition to UF President Bernie Machen that would declare the university publicly opposed to the war. Kerry cancels forum By CHAD SMITH Alligator Staff Writer csmith@aligator.org Sen. John Kerry canceled his UF town-hall forum scheduled for Friday because he said he will be busy on Capitol Hill that day, the head of UF's speakers bureau said. Accent Chairman Andrew Brown said Kerry called him Tuesday to apologize about canceling and promised Brown that he would come to UF soon. Brown didn't know if the forum would be rescheduled for this semester. Kerry told Brown that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid mandated that all Democratic senators stay in Washington, D.C., Friday to vote on a number of bills, Brown said. About 600 students picked up tickets Tuesday for the forum, which was scheduled for the roughly 800seat ,University Auditorium, said Erica Lopez, a box office On supervisor at the Phillips CampUS Center for the Performing Arts. Brown said he wasn't sure if those tickets could be used for the rescheduled forum. Kerry requested the event be held at the auditorium because he spoke there about 35 years ago in a speech protesting the Vietnam War, Brown said. STUDENT GOVERNMENT Pants senator disqualified By ERIN EHRLICH Alligator Writer The Student Government Supreme Court ruled after a hearing Tuesday to disqualify the Pants Party from the Spring SG elections. As a result, Pants' lone winner, Alan Passman, won't be allowed to fill the Student Senate seathe won. The hearing was the result of complaints filed by former student senator and Gator Party supporter John Clayton Brett, who accused Pants of passing out "I Voted" stickers to benefit Pants and potentially inhibiting voters from siding with Gator. In a 3-1 vote, the court decided that disqualification was the only punishment that would send a message to discourage future candidates from violating elections law. The opinion states, "Pants Party leadership undermined the authority of the Elections Commission and the integrity of the electoral process." Pants members aren't disqualified from running in future elections, according to the court's option. Justice John Campbell, -ethe only dissenting member of the court, wrote in a statement that he believed the court's deciPassman sion to prevent Passman from taking his seat was unconstitutional. He wrote, "Passman was elected by majority vote via a democratic process. Passman, not the Pants Party, is being punished."

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 New SG senators sworn in By JOANNA BLAZ Alligator Writer jblaz@alligator.org The Spring Student Government elections results were validated Tuesday night at a Student Senate meeting, with the Gator Party taking 44 of the 47 open Senate seats and all three executive positions. SG Supervisor of Elections Brian Aungst presented the results, which were approved unanimously by the Senate. He said that one seat was left vacant due to the SG Supreme Court's disqualification of the Pants Party's only winner, Alan Passman. The new senators were sworn in Tuesday and were to elect their president and president pro-tempore, but the results weren't available by press time. Many senators who will not be returning thanked others and shared stories about their time in Senate. Outgoing Senate President Josh Weiss thanked many senators and talked about his experiences. "I love knowing that I'm able to connect so many people," he said. "The opportunity to serve as your Senate president is an experience I'll never forget." Sen. Robert Agrusa, the judiciary committee chairman, has been campaigning for Weiss' position. He is the only one who was nominated for the spot. "I feel like I have the ability to reach out to unmotivated people and get people excited," he said. "I N' I, N' N' F I' 'I 'N ,~' 'S~e jai want to bring more energy back to the chambers." If chosen to head the Senate, Agrusa said he thinks his experience with student organizations will help him reach his goals, which include better communication with students, more tangible legislation and the creation of a committee to improve athletic ticket distribution. Agrusa also hopes to reach his goal of better communication by making Senate meetings accessible on the Internet. "The opportunity to serve as your Senate president is an experience I'll never forget Josh Weiss outgoing SG Senate president The validation of the results, which was supposed to take place before Spring Break, was delayed until Tuesday because the Elections Commission was waiting on the Supreme Court's decision on what to do with Pants and Passman. Although it disqualified Passman, the court recommended that he apply for the position again. The court's decision "does not disqualify any Pants Party members for applying for the vacant seat," Aungst said. SFCC SG faceoff By KATIE EMMETS Alligator Contributing Writer Candidates from Liger, United Students, Genesis and One -SFCC Student Government parties -will face off in debate today at noon in the Oak Grove on the college's campus. The positions of president, vice president, judicial secretary and treasurer are up for grabs. The Liger Party is fielding Gavin Rollins for president, and the party's platform focuses on free student bussing, more pencil sharpeners in classrooms and more afterschool tutors for students. The United Students Party's presidential candidate is Tara McDowell. The party's main goals are keeping student parking free and improving the class-pass rate for students. The Genesis Party is backing presidential candidate Kenny Etienne.

4, ALLIGATOR U WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007 Machen not in office to meet protesters PROTEST, from page 1 The two-and-a-half-hour demonstration began at 1 p.m. as participants left their classrooms for the Reitz Union Colonnade. Fists pounded the air and flags caught the wind as a steady thread of people stretched across the Plaza of the Americas and connected the Hub to Tigert. As they arrived at Tigert, they piled onto the front steps and hung signs that read, "End the war," and, "War is terrorism" over railings. The volume grew with the crowd, as people were backed up nearly to Southwest 13th Street. A UF official stood at the front door, holding it open for just one protester to bring the petition upstairs to Machen's office. Nonetheless, about 10 streamed in when the door was opened. As they settled in the office's waiting room, they were quickly informed by Beth Boone, Machen's executive assistant, that he was out of town. As skeptical protesters pleaded with the secretary, UF spokesman Steve Orlando was sent to help mediate. Orlando agreed to help set up a time for the protesters to meet with Machen to discuss the petition, and the protesters were escorted out. "That ain't right!" protesters yelled outside. Richard Gutierrez, a UF English and history junior and a protest organizer, suggested the mass march to the National Guard recruiting office on Northwest 13th Street. About one-fifth of the marchers left, and the remaining continued on. After crossing West University Avenue, they spilled onto the right northbound lane of 13th Street, chanting "Whose streets? Our streets!" and dodging traffic. The group was denied access to the office and demonstrated on the road for about 10 minutes. "They have locked their doors on us; they do not want a dialogue with us," Steiger said through the megaphone. "To the Plaza of the Americas!" Protesters marched back to campus chanting, "Fire Bernie!" and, "No more war!" against a backdrop of car horns. Alex Ingram, a student senaStudent tor at SFCC, offered bagged ice Activisivp to the hot and thirsty marchers as they trekked back to the plaza. Ingram was impressed by the protest, he said, but thought it could have been stronger and was disappointed that Machen wasn't there to meet with them. At the plaza, protest organizer and UF freshman Joe Richard congratulated the crowd on the protest. "This is the beginning of a series of actions we will take to restore democracy," Richani said. The idea of marching on the ROTC building was suggested but quickly fizzled among the tired and hungry protesters. "What are we doing?" one yelled. "Getting lunch!" answered another.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 Student gets Greeced up during Spring Break She studied abroad through a UF program Editor's note: This is the final article in a three-part series on how students spent their Spring Break. By JESSIE COLEMAN Alligator Writer jcoleman@aligator.org Justine Koshes bumped and bounced in the back seat of a taxi that bobbed and weaved through the Athens traffic like an agile boxer dodging the blows of his opponent. With her seat belt buckled and hands gripping the edge of the seat, Koshes learned her first lesson about Greek culture after less than an hour in the country: Take the taxi at your own risk. Koshes, UF sophomore, visited nine cities in Greece with her Olympic History in Greece class during Spring Break. The class, which met for two hours every week, and the weeklong excursion were part of UF's three-credit Spring Break studyabroad program in Greece. "I'm glad I did it because it was amazing, and I can never get that experience again." Justine Koshes UF student "I love to travel," Koshes said. "I figured students should definitely take advantage of the opportunity that they have to study abroad. I paid for my plane ticket, and that was about it." Money from the Bright Futures and Florida Prepaid programs covered the cost of tuition and housing. Koshes spent about $1,000 on her plane ticket, and another $550 on food and souvenirs. Although Koshes had researched the Olympic Games and Athenian culture in class before the trip, her adventures in Greece taught her lessons that she hadn't found in class. Shortly after 12.5 hours of flying, and still shaky from the jerky taxi ride, Koshes encountered Greek culture lesson No. 2 in her hotel bathroom: Greeks do not flush their toilet paper, they throw it in the trash can. The learning continued a few hours later when Koshes ordered a Greek salad at an outdoor caf6. She was surprised when her server brought out a bowl of chopped tomato, onion and cucumber tossed in an oil-and-vinegar sauce and topped with a thick slab of fresh feta cheese -lesson No. 3. "Greek salads do not have lettuce. I learned that the hard way," Koshes said. "Basically, it was like a bowl of toppings." Despite the confusion, Koshes devoured the fresh vegetables, which she said were more flavorful than vegetables in the United States. After eating the salad, she was unexpectedly full. Unlike the fast pace of meals in the United States, Koshes lingered over her meals for about two hours in Greece, she said. Sometimes sipping an Ouzo, a licorice-tasting liquor and Sprite drink, Koshes sat at outdoor cafs and watched street vendors who sold fake Louis Vuitton and Gucci bags. Koshes said Greek people seemed more fashion-conscious than Americans. Her tour-guide bus driver wore a Versace sports shirt, leather shoes, and brand-name jeans and sunglasses. Koshes, who wore jeans and layered tops, as the temperatures fluctuated between 50 and 70 degrees, enjoyed observing the brightly dressed Greeks, who were often adorned in loud yellows and crisp whites. In one shop, Koshes saw a mannequin wearing yellow tights, a denim miniskirt, a bright yellow and black top with loosely flowing sleeves and a thick black belt fastened around the waist. "You would never see someone walking the streets with that on, but I could definitely see it in Greece," Koshes said. In addition to observing the nuances of Greek life,_Koshes visited historical sites, many of which were reduced to ruins. She and her classmates woke at 6 a.m. every day and spent most mornings touring cities and architectural monuments. Of all the buildings, the athletic stadiums impressed Koshes most. At a stadium in Delphi, she was awed at the still-intact marble stadium seating. But her favorite jaunt was a lastminute addition to her itinerary. One day, Koshes took a spontaneous train ride to Pyrgos, a busy commercial town in Western Greece. Lindsay Lucado, an exercise physiology junior, accompanied her to the small town. "Most people didn't speak any English, and we didn't know any Greek besides the basic hello and thank you," Lucado said. "So it was definitely a cultural immersion." Koshes and Lucado welcomed the chance to experience authentic Greek culture, a change from the tourist-friendly cities that bordered most popular sightseeing spots. In a small caf6 with only one English menu, Koshes ate the best pizza she'd ever had. It was handtossed, splattered with basil-tomato sauce and topped with a generous portion of crushed tomatoes, mushrooms and melted mozzarella. She bargained for a tank top with funky shapes and designs that captured Greek style, convincing the begrudging shopkeeper to accept 25 euros instead of the original price of 30. She said the people in Pyrgos were less ftierndly than Greek people in more touristy cities. "In Pyrgos, they were on the go. They weren't very smiley," Koshes said. "They didn't go out of their way to help us in the stores." But the constant travel and sightseeing took its toll. After Koshes' excursion to Pyrgos, a sore throat and fever that began on Wednesday stunted her ability to travel. She still attended the morning tours but was less active in the afternoons. She left Greece on Saturday morning, her duffle bag packed tight with the little pieces of Greece she had collected, including the custom-made T-shirt with her name in Greek letters and a Greek flag. "We did something every day. It was very tiring," Koshes said. "But when I look back at it, I'm glad I did it because it was amazing, and I can never get that experience again."

6, ALLIGATOR 0 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007 Editorial Pantless SG Supreme Court decision unfair lan Passman, the lone Pants Party Senate seat winner from the Spnng Student Government elections, lost his ants Tuesday evening. The SG Supreme Court voted 3-1 to disqualify the wouldbe engineering graduate student senator, along with the Pants Party as a whole. The court said it wants to set a precedent that election codes must be followed and that the Election Commission must be taken seriously when it issues a ceaseand-desist order. This is the first time a case like this has come before the court. But there is a difference between setting precedent and wrongly ousting a mostly innocent bystander. It's one thing to disqualify the party as a whole, even though at this point its really more of a symbolic gesture than anything. But to strip the senator-elect of his seat -the same night all the other senators-elect, bubbly and excited in their new suits and dresses, are sworn in -is just cruel and unusual punishment. Passman said in a sworn statement that he did not pass out "I Voted" stickers after the cease-and-desist order was issued. It's not fair for him to be punished for following the rules just because some chose not to. Justice John Campbell, who voted that Passman should be able to keep his seat, nailed it in his letter of dissent: "Passman is truly 'guilty by association.'" The majority of the court missed its mark. It would be a different story if the court were setting a valid precedent -we're not disputing that handing out "I Voted" stickers in violation of a cease-and-desist order wasn't the best decision. But Passman didn't violate that order. He should not have lost his seat. One thing the court did get right, however, is its decision to allow Passman to re-apply for the vacant seat he already won. We hope he does. And we hope that everyone else refrains from applying in protest of the court's unfair decision. Those damn jobs Who does he think he is? Sen. John Kerry canceled his Accent-sponsored town-hall style speech because, of all reasons, his commitment to his job. See, that's exactly what's wrong with politics today. These senators choose to vote for things like bills in Congress instead of speaking to students and American citizens. Apparently a slew of votes is enough to keep the high-profile politician in Washington, D.C. We should not stand for this. This is the man who testified to Congress decades ago about the atrocities occurring in Vietnam. We say atrocities are being committed today here at UF. If the man can't even keep an unpaid publicity appointment, why should, we trust him in our Senate? Or maybe we should view this as a good thing -who in Gainesville would vote for him now, if he decides to run again for president? Certainly not us. First he flip-flopped on Iraq, now he flip-flops on his tour appearances. Tsk, tsk, Senator. And w4o's going to tell us that if we don't do a good job in school, we might end up "stuck in Iraq"? Kerry called Accent Chairman Andrew Brown personally and promised to reschedule his visit. We look forward to hearing hii speak when there aren't more, ahem, important things happening on Capitol Hill. isthe independent florida Jessica Riffel Tom Durrenberger EDITOR Leigh Shapiro Kat Laskowski Jonathan Tietz MANAGING EDITOR EDITORIAL BOARD Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinions LAYW7M, 114VY AN9 VMANQW 1i ?1kAA&VT6AL$ Column Even small doses of censorship bad he many resident protesters here at UF and in Gainesville should be glad they don't live in another part of the world. In some countries, events like Tuesday's protest rally -or even the cheap shots Alligator editorials take at the Bush administration sometimes -would hardly exist. Take Venezuela, for instance. About this time last month, a court demanded that a local newspaper and one of its columnsts pay $45,000 for poking fun at President Hugo Chavez. Imagine how deep in debt some of us would be if we were fined every time we ragged on ol' Dubya. Thank God we live in America, eh? Of course, I can't say that without a bit of sarcasm. You see, while everyone should be grateful we live in a country where we can more or less say what we want, a lot of institutions are slowly trying to encroach upon the right of free speech. Some of those institutions are the court systems that were supposedly constructed to protect these rights. Perhaps this will hit closer to home: The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing arguments for a case in which an Alaska high school principal suspended a senior for displaying a sign reading, "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" across the street from the school. However you feel about the incident, the truth is that rulings made in this case and others like it will lead to some serious changes in what you or I define as "free speech." I find it disturbing that not only can our speech be curtailed and limited in the public sphere but also that our governing bodies actively and aggressively support such policies. Censorship has always been an issue, but it's becoming more obvious that there really is a limit on what we're allowed to say. No matter how you cut it, censorship is wrong. No matter how much you try to deny Dan Burroughs it, there is a line distinguishing letters@alligator.org what you are and are not allowed to say. Sadly, that line is becoming more defined as more people are scrutinized for the things they say. I I can't help but laugh when I hear people try to defend censorship in any of its forms. Whether it's sex, vulgar language -as highly ambiguous as that is -or controversial political discourse, the Federal Communications Commission and similar organizations seek to control the public media. On a shallow level, some argue that certain words and images pervert and corrupt our youth. Well, it's the responsibility of parents, not mass media, to make sure their kids have a proper understanding of the world. On a deeper level, some argue that certain words and images demoralize and ultimately hurt the fabric of our society. But the bigger crime lies in depriving the public of an honest and unadulterated view of reality. While I believe that there is a gray area in almost any argument, censorship is not one of them. Half-censorship leaves too much room to slowly push toward full censorship. On no level is it right to regulate what goes on TV, radio, newspaper -or even a high school student's poster.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 7 Letter to the Editor Iraq war protest different from Vietnam In his Monday column, Patrick Barrett expressed opposition to students' decision to protest the Iraq war Tuesday His premises were not without logic. Forty years ago, the Vietnam War provided a basis that protesters compare to our situation in Iraq. Without delving too deeply into the history of evidence surrounding this, we should remember the following: First, the Vietnam "War" (no war declaration was ever technically made; however, I affirm that the Vietnam conflict was truly a war) had an extensive draft, and tens of thousands of those who died did not voluntarily sign up for the mission. Second, that "war" was started due to a fear of communism, which is comparable to the fear of terrorism, and France's political pressure to save its colony. Unlike today's war, however, our nation was neither threatened directly nor indirectly by either conventional or nuclear attack from the Vietnamese nation. Many similarities exist between these two wars. It is for these reasons, however, that we must be cautious. Ho Chi Minh -the North Vietnamese leader -and his commanders wrote and spoke about how the antiwar protests often gave his troops hope and inspiration when they were too-often decimated in battle. After our Vietnam withdrawal, thousands of Vietnamese were "cleansed" from the peninsula. If we leave Iraq now, we will all see such partisan cleansing in this volatile region. We must research our past and understand our mistakes to knowledgeably exercise our inherent rights of speech and protest. Matthew Forhan 2EG Editorial Notebook Where is the passion of protest from the Vietnam era? mericans from all political leanings have said for years that the war in Iraq is the Middle Eastem equivalent of the Vietnam War. They have a point. It is internationally unpopular, and there is no exit strategy. Add to that the number of American lives lost -lives that even some Republicans say have been wasted. So if this is another Vietnam, where are all the student protesters? Tuesday, the Gainesville chapter of Students for a Democratic Society, the emblematic student group of the 1960s, led an antiwar protest of about 500 students and faculty members. Four years after the war began, the group held painted signs and filed toward Tigert Hall to request changes in policy from the closest thing to a political entity, UF's administration. Back in the day, radical members of the society blew up government buildings to get Uncle Sam's attention. That's a little extreme and I don't advocate violence, but can't we find some middle ground? Most graduating seniors were still in high school when we first invaded Baghdad. Leigh Shapiro Over the Editorial Notebook last half-cenletters@almigator.org tury in democratic, educated societies, students were traditionally the most vociferous activists for social and political change. They often have the freedom of adulthood without fiscal and time commitments like mortgages and families. The youth are said to be blessed with the starry-eyed idealism that leads them to believe they can affect change. But I worried our generation has lost that idealism. We have more faith in "The Daily Show'' than the nightly news -those "Stewart/ Colbert 08" bumper stickers are real. We're more worried about the invasion of privacy by Facebook than by the FBI. Sure, a few student groups like SDS and 400,000 Faces care enough to hold signs and yell on the Plaza of the Americas, but most of us passersby can't hear through the shield of our white iPod earbuds. UF has more than 50,000 students, many of whom oppose the war. However, the most visible activists are the Gainesville locals on University Avenue, whom most students barely deign to mock as they drive by. Will future administrations be accountable at all if our generation never takes up the torch? Students have successfully called for political change not just in America but in France, Iran, Indonesia and Eastem Europe, too. Not to promote the same cynicism that I'm criticizing here, but I hope that the reason UF students don't try to do the same isn't outright apathy. Leigh Shapiro is a UF sophomore.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2007E ALLIGATOR, 15 UF BASEBALL Gators fail to record clutch hits in loss at Stetson By ALEX WEINTRAUB Alligator Writer aweintraub@altigator.org DELAND -Inconsistency has been the theme of the year for the UF baseball team. Thelast few innings of Tuesday night's 4-3 loss to Stetson proves that point. In the seventh and eighth innings, the Gators had chances to tie the game but failed to come through in front of a record crowd of 2,975 at Melching Field. "It's a tough loss," said shortstop Cole, Figueroa. "We know we all work hard. We just got to get it together." In the seventh, UF (11-13 1-2 SEC) was down by one run with a runner on third and senior slugger Matt LaPorta at the plate. The Gators had already scored two runs in the inning, and momentum had swung their way. But the first baseman was unable to come up with a hit and struck out to end the inning. In the next frame, the Gators had runners on first and second with one out when catcher Cody Neer drove a pitch deep into left-center that looked like it would fall for a double before Hatters center fielder Shane Jordan made a running catch. Senior designated hitter Austin Pride, who advanced from second to third on the play, was later thrown out after an appeal that brought UF coach Pat McMahon out of the dugout. "(Pride) did not come off the bag early," McMahon said. "But obviously we don't make that call. The umpire felt he made the correct call, and he's the boss in that situation." UF hitters struggled for most of the game against Stetson freshman Robby Donovan, who held the Gators to two runs in 6 1/3 innings of work. Figueroa was the bright spot of the evening for the offense, going 3 for 4. Outfielder Brian Leclerc also continued to hit the ball well, going 2 for 4 and scoring one run. He has been on a tear of late, getting 12 hits in his last 17 at-bats. "You could make a defensive high-' light reel out of today's game for both clubs." Pat McMahon UF baseball coach "That's a real positive sign for us," said McMahon on Leclerc's hitting. "He has continued to work hard and get better." Stetson's offense, on the other hand, got off to a fast start before fading late. The Hatters scored all four of their runs in the first two innings off UF freshman Clint Franklin, who was making his first career start. He would last just three innings, giving up four runs. The bullpen, however, would keep tIF in the game and threw six scoreless innings. The Gators were also kept alive by superb defense. The team did not commit an error on the evening, and LaPorta made a diving catch to rob Stetson second baseman Jeremy Cruz of an extra-base hit before diving into first base to complete a double play. "You could make a defensive highlight reel out of today's game for both clubs," McMahon said. But in the end, the Gators' defense and bullpen could not overcome a lackluster offensive performance. Even though he has a nine-game hitting streak, Figueroa is more worried about his team, which has dropped six of its last eight contests. "I'm hitting the ball well,but I'd trade those hits in for some wins right now," he said. Horford, Humphrey close in on UF double-double, 3-point records HOOPS, from page 16 venate in time for tipoff. While in New Orleans, forward Al Horford said the players slept in Saturday morning and were given the privilege of a virtually stress-free day. "Coach gave us a lot of free time to hang out and do whatever we wanted," Horford said. "Then we practiced and came back and ate dinner. Then we relaxed, and he told us to watch a movie if we want or whatever. Between meals we might watch film, but he doesn't want to overwhelm us." But Donovan knows the team is capable of managing the scouting reports from both teams. "Our guys this year are very intelligent guys," he said. "They absorb and retain information well. You can give them a lot, and they can handle it. "Our players do a good job of paying attention to what we teach them, Sand I think that Donovan can lend itself to being an advantage." RECORD WATCH: Horford is creeping up the ranks of UF's singleseason double-double leaders. The junior forward is tied for third after earning his 15th double-double of the season Friday against Jackson State in the first round of the tournament. Horford needs four more double-doubles to slide into the top spot and break Bob Smyth's 1975-76 record of 18. Senior Lee Humphrey is four 3-pointers away from becoming the new career leader in 3-point field goals made. The record is currently held by Brett Nelson, who tallied 274 from 1999-2003. Humphrey recently broke the record for the most consecutive games scoring a 3-pointer. The sharpshooter sank his 34th against Jackson State and advanced the streak to 35 in UF's win against Purdue. UF coach Urban Meyer holds up the national championship trophy during the fall pep rally to honor the 2006 title team in the Swamp. Three new QBs vie to back up Tebow FOOTBALL, from page 16 right now. We have, I think, seven seniors. And then I believe there's eight juniors. That's awful." Meyer is probably overstating the problem, but it is a problem nonetheless. The Gators must be anchored by underclassmen next season. In 2006, many of UF's freshmen contributed by default. The others hitched a free ride along the way "A lot of these guys woke up on third base and never hit a triple," Meyer said. "All of a sudden they're holding these crystal balls up, and getting measured for rings and (shaking) the President of the United States' hand without going through three years of what some consider torture -we call Football it player development." To add depth, the Gators are entertaining position changes, especially at corner. Running back Markus Manson and incoming freshman receiver Joe Haden could switch to corner, although nothing has been decided yet. Of course, all is not gloomy in Gator Nation. UF should-field one of the nation's most prolific attacks. Led by quarterback Tim Tebow, the Gators have enough quality receivers and offensive linemen to field two competitive offenses. Tebow will likely concede some playing to two of UF's new quarterbacks: freshmen John Brantley and Cameron Newton and junior college transfer Bryan Waggener. Either Brantley or Newton will likely redshirt. Despite the good, bad and everything in between, fans want to know if UF has any chance of repeating. "I wish I could stand up here and say that we can make another run at this title," Meyer said. "I don't know. I have no idea, but it's, so farfetched." GONZO, from page 16 To prove they have this season won't be easy. The team leaders -Brandon Siler, Jemalle Cornelius and Chris Leak -are gone. .Last season's stellar defense, with the exception of defensive end Derrick Harvey, has been replaced with unproven backups. There will be no more Reggie Nelson highlights, no more "Eraser" on the Gators defense. Every position but the offensive line enters this spring with loads of questions. Can quarterback Tim Tebow lead the team? Will a running back ever come to fruition under Meyer? Who on earth will fill the defensive void for the Gators? Meyer is on his way to building an elite program. A championship has brought in money, which will help financial endeavors as UF builds new facilities and improves old ones. Recruiting was stellar again, and coaching thus far has been the same. Most of the talk this season will surround Tebow, whose heroics last year showed glimpses of greatness. But it's up to Meyer, who has the critical task of making UF a consistent title contender, much like Spurrier did more than a decade ago. So was last year the start of something great, or was it merely a Cinderella story? Only time will tell.

Coaches keep Elite Eight in mind By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@alIigator.org With three days of practice before its game on Friday night, the UF men's basketball team will undoubtedly be well-versed in fifth-seeded Butler's idiosyncrasies. It's the second game that could trip the Gators up in the NCAA Tournament. If UF (31-5) defeats the Bulldogs (29-6) and advances to the Elite Eight, it will have just more than 24 hours to recover, refocus and register information about its next game. "It's crazy because you only have one day to prepare for that second day," guard Walter Hodge said. "The coaches will be watching film, but we won't Men's watch anything (before BaskeballSaturday)." Baske The Gators would face either No. 3 seed Oregon or No. 7 seed UNLV, the lowest seed remaining in the tournament. Because players have to focus on Butler, it's up to the assistant coaches to acquire the most information possible on both potential opponents. In the case of this weekend's potential second game, assistants began anaylzing video Monday. One studied Oregon and the other UNLV. Each coach will break down the footage while the Gators prepare for Butler. If UF wins, the staff will condense the material about Sunday's opponent to give the CliffsNotes version to the players. "I would say the team doesn't have as much information (as the coaches)," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "You've got basically an hour and some film sessions to get in what the most key points are."

Meyer must prove he can stay on top in third year hen Urban Meyer raised the national championship trophy in January, his work at UF wasn't done. That monumental accomplishment was just the first -albeit huge -step toward building a consistent football program. The Ron Zook memories were washed away that fateful night in Glendale, Ariz., and the swagger that once existed when Steve Spurrier roamed the sidelines in the Swamp returned. Once again, the Gators are in college football's limelight. Now it's Meyer's job to keep them thev-, something he never saw through in his previous head-coaching gigs. 71 86 92 77 Antonio Gonzalez Going Going Gonzo agonzalez@aIIigator.org As the first horn of spring practice blows today around 3:25 p.m., the unprecedented third year at the same school for Meyer will commence. A new set of freshmen will don the orange and blue, and the upperclassmen will revisit that familiar spot on Sanders Practice Field where their championship run began a year ago. However, a new task looms: proving last season wasn't a fluke. W2004: Despite 10 innings and just three hits allowed from Jenny Gladding, the softball team loses to Arkansas 5-4 in 11 innings, matching the longest game in program history. "There are so many positives from last year," Meyer said. "We have an obligation to build upon that." The Gators lost a lot of talent from their championship squad, but great programs don't rebuild, they reload. This season we will find out how close, or how far, the Gators are to becoming a dominant program. Southern Cal is the standard of late. The Trojans lost three Heisman Trophy winners in four years -along with loads of other talent -but have still been in the national title hunt every season since. Has UF reached that level yet? SEE GONZO, PAGE 15 N UF redshirt freshman Melanie Sinclair was named the Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week on Tuesday. She became the third UF gymnast to win the award this season. Fresh faces to carry UF in spring By LOUIS ANASTASIS Alligator Staff Writer lanastasis@alligator.org The national championship rings are still rolling in. Monday, the team visited with President Bush at the White House. If UF coach Urban Meyer had it his way, the Gators' national championship dream would never end. "Everybody asks, 'How much time are you taking away from it? Do you need some time to relax?'" Meyer said. "The answer is: I do not want to get away. I wish it would last forever." Unfortunately for Meyer, the defending champions have already been dismantled. Nearly every -impact player on UF's suffocating defense has graduated or decided to go pro. So have offensive weapons Chris Leak, Dallas Baker and Meyer Jem alle Cornelius. Today with the start of spring practice, Meyer begins a" different challenge than the one he undertook a year ago. Just don't mention the words "rebuild" or "sustain" around the coach, or he might snap. "If you're sustaining, you're going backwards and losing," Meyer said. "We're building, we're growing, we're moving. We're not enjoying; we're trying to build upon it." This won't be easy. Many of the defensive players UF will rely upon in 2007 have yet to attend senior prom, never mind move into dorms. This figures to create a dilemma during spring camp. For example, with Wondy PierreLouis and Markihe Anderson being 'the only healthy returning cornerbacks (Jacques Rickerson is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery), how will Meyer prep his deep wide receiver corps? "We're not a good team," Meyer said.
