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."
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
"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."

Pants senator disqualified
By ERIN EHRLICH
The Student Government Supreme Court
ruled after a hearing Tuesday to disqualify
the Pants Party from the Spring SG elec-
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,

New SG senators sworn in
By JOANNA BLAZ
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
Agrusa also hopes to reach his goal of better com-
munication by making Senate meetings accessible on

Senate president is an experience I'll
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
"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
"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
By JESSIE COLEMAN
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
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
"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
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-
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
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
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,"
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-
Of all the buildings, the athletic
stadiums impressed Koshes most.
At a stadium in Delphi, she was
awed at the still-intact marble sta-
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
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."

SG Supreme Court
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.

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-

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
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
firstname.lastname@example.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

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
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.
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,
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
Leigh Shapiro Over the
Editorial Notebook last half-cen-
tury in demo-
email@example.com cratic, educat-
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
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.

Gators fail to record clutch hits in loss at Stetson
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
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
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
"(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
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
He would last just three innings, giving up
The bullpen, however, would keep F in
the game and threw six scoreless innings.
The Gators were also kept alive by superb
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
But in the end, the Gators' defense and
bullpen could not overcome a lackluster of-
Even though he has a nine-game hitting
streak, Figueroa is more worried about his
team, which has dropped six of its last eight
"I'm hitting the ball well, but I'd trade those
hits in for some wins right now," he said.

Al Horford said the players slept

"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

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

The record is currently held by
Brett Nelson, who tallied 274 from
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

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
In 2006, many of UF's freshmen contributed by
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
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
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."

Coaches keep Elite Eight in mind
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
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

"I would say the team doesn't have as

coach Billy Donovan said. "You've got basi-
cally an hour and some film sessions to get in
what the most key points are."

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

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
