Words on wall leave mark on local history

hopes that future generations

UF ADMINISTRATION

Bush not to get UF degree


By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF FacultySenate denied former Gov.
Jeb Bush an honorary degree after a debate at
a meeting Thursday, as some senators criti-
cized his lack of support for the university.
"I wonder what's in it for us," said Mark
Davis, a senator and clinical associate profes-
sor of operational dentistry.
"I don't think this would make a tremen-
dous contribution to our school, and I don't
see where (Bush) comes in to getting this
award," Davis said.
Other senators, like family, youth and"
community sciences professor Elizabeth
Bolton, disagreed.
"I think it was a great mistake," Bolton
said in an interview after the meeting. "I
think he's a national figure. These people
aren't looking at the big picture."


Senate Chairwoman Danaya Wright, a
law professor, said the matter was added to
the meeting's agenda at the last minute. She
thinks members of the faculty and admin-
istration should have met before the meet-
ing to determine new rules for giving the
degrees.
She suggested imple-.
menting rules like one
requiring that politicians
be out of office for a certain
amount of time before they
can be nominated for an
honorary degree.
Bus'h Wright added that she
wasn't aware of anyone ever being denied
an honorary degree at UF.
"Being a politician should not exclude
someone from an honorary degree," Wright
said. "But the conversation showed that the

Jeff Laskin, who worked
at Shands at UF as a surgeon
for 10 years and is one of the
project's main contributors,
said he didn't always appreci-
ate the wall.
At first, Laskin said the
1,120-foot-long concrete
slab, created in 1979 when
the Florida Department of
Transportation widened
Southwest 34th Street, was
hardly worthy of his atten-
tion.
When painters, graffiti art-
ists and locals with a message
began to splash and swirl the
wall with color, Laskin said he
barely noticed.
However, in 1989, a large
mural finally piqued his inter-
est. At that time, local artist
Jim Evangelista painted a sec-
tion of the wall to commemo-
rate the death of Salvador
Dali, one of Laskin's favorite
painters.
Touched by the mural,
Laskin took a photograph
with his "pretty damn heavy"
35mm Nikkormat camera.
Every couple of days or so, he
would return to the wall and

Protest lacks '60s scale


By ADRIAN ERLENBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF sophomore Rachel Greenfield
was the only student to walk out of
her sixth-period journalism class to
participate in Tuesday's anti-war
protest, which was organized by
the Gainesville Area Students for a
Democratic Society.
Holding a spray-painted sign, she
joined the march toward Tigert Hall.
But she said the protest didn't compare
to those that took place in the days of
Vietnam.
"Back then they were more hard-
core," she said. "There were protests
all the time."
In May 1972, thousands of students


blocked sections of University Avenue
and Northwest 13th Street, said Scott
Camil, a 60-year-old UF alumnus.
This was not a
Student scene from a national
Activism championship victory,
but rather a two-and-
a-half-day demonstration against the
Vietnam War. About 400 students were
arrested, and 72 police officers were in-
jured. It sounds revolutionary, but in a
time of domestic unrest, the scene was
typical for college campuses through-
out the country, Camil said.
Camil, a coordinator for Veterans for
Peace who served 20 weeks in Vietnam
and was awarded two Purple Hearts,
also attended the society's protest.

UF RESEARCH
Professors study lightning
When lightning strikes, the
average person runs for shelter.
But that's when members of
UF's Lightning Research Group
go to work to conduct research
that could help in-understanding
global warming.
Researchers from UF and
Uppsala University in Sweden,
who have been gathering data
since 2005 at a military base near
Starke, discovered the amount of
nitrogen oxide gas given off by a

lightning strike.
The gas is also emitted by
power plants and automobiles,
and it can harm the ozone layer,
which protects the earth from the
sun's ultraviolet radiation.
Vladimir Rakov, a UF electri-
cal and computer engineering
professor and the project's head
researcher, said lightning has
long been known as a natural
source of the gas.
But the research puts a num-
ber on how much is given off
- which is a factor for scientists
studying global warming.
"The problem of global warm-
ing is still a huge uncertainty,"
Rakov said. "These calculations,
we believe, are potentially more
accurate measures and reduce
the uncertainty of how much
nitrogen oxide actually is given
off."

TRAVEL
Wait time up for passports
SStudents who plan to travel
this summer may want to get
their passports now.
It typically takes about two
weeks to receive a passport. But
due to a greater number of re-
quests, it now takes about 10, ac-
cording to the passport services
Web site.
Because of Spring Break and
the upcoming summer season,
February to April is the busiest
time of the year for passport

STUDENT LIFE


Cohabitating couples live outside the law in Florida


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

When Jessica Neff and
Andrew Lawrence decided to
live together two years ago, they
thought of the money they'd
save by splitting expenses.
The two were already insepa-
rable, Neff said, so moving in
together was a natural step in the
relationship.
"We were already spending
so much time together, and we're
both comfortable," she said. "He
likes to cook, I like to clean, so it
works out."
But Neff and Lawrence did
not consider that they were
breaking an archaic Florida law.
Statute 798.02, established
in 1868, criminalizes those who
"lewdly or lasciviously" live to-
gether and those who, whether
married or unmarried, engage
"in open and gross lewdness and
lascivious behavior."
But according to some, the
law is screaming to be modified
or eliminated.
Neff said she knew about the
law, but she wasn't concerned
about the possible punishment
of 60 days in jail or a $500 fine.
"I'm not worried about it,"


she said. "In Gainesville, espe-
cially, it's hard to enforce. They
can't'just go around knocking
on doors."
According to a 2002 survey by
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, about 50 percent
of women between 15 and 44
years old have lived with their
partners.
"We were already
spending so much time
together, and we're both
comfortable."
Jessica Neff
UF student

Telisha Martin, a sociology
doctoral student who is doing
her thesis on cohabitation, said
low-income couples are more
likely to live together than cou-
ples with higher incomes.
"This could be because they
don't have enough money for the
kind of wedding they want, or
maybe they just haven't met the
financial milestones they want,"
she said.
Students, on the other hand,
often view living together as
an extension to their current
relationship or a prelude to mar-


riage, Martin said.
Martin said the law is silly
because it's out of touch with
today's generation.
"This mentality is so far in the
minority, I don't see it changing
how people behave," she said.
In September, a similar law
was challenged and struck
down in North Carolina, leav-
ing Florida as one of six states
with an anti-cohabitation law.
The other states are Michigan;
Mississippi, Virginia, West
Virginia and North Dakota.
Law professor Joseph Little-
said the Florida Legislature may
purposely keep the law intact be-
cause it forbids people from be-
ing "lewd or lascivious" in pub-
lic places. Although .other laws
also criminalize public lewdness,
Little said the law might be bet-
ter off amended than eliminated.
"If a married couple wants to
copulate in front of Tigert Hall,
they can't do that," he said. "For
that reason, the state does have
an interest in keeping this law."
Little said since the law isn't
usually enforced, nobody has
challenged it.
"If it were to be eliminated,
somebody has to get the legisla-
ture interested in removing it,"
he said.

HOMELESSNESS


Plaza event halted


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Before a UF student organization
was able to enter the Plaza of the
Americas on Wednesday morning
for a homeless awareness event,
its members were confronted by a
group of UF officials and armed,
plainclothes police officers who told
them to leave.
Though its permit to host the
event was revoked, Students for a
Human Society showed up on the
plaza because they felt unjustly
targeted by UF officials, said group
member Christina Bates.
Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
said the permit was revoked after UF
officials found out through a Facebook
profile that the group planned to stay
three days longer than the permit al-
lowed. The profile was posted by the
Gator Homeless Coalition, a student
group that planned to stay on the
plaza after the society's event.
David Reznik, a member of both
organizations, said in an interview
that the coalition was planning to
attend the awareness event and cam-
pout until Saturday. As members of
both groups lugged their tents onto
the plaza, Reznik said Zdziarski,
three Reitz Union staff members and
two police officers told them they
weren't allowed to set up their event.
Reznik said he also noticed other as-
sociate and assistant deans stationed
at all comers of the plaza.


Bates said she was shocked at the
number of officials who tried to quell
such a small conflict.
"It's not like we were threatening
to take anything over. We just wanted
to set up tents," she said. "When
500 people protested, they didn't
do anything," she said, referring to
Tuesday's student protest of the Iraq
war.

"It's not like we were
threatening to take anything
over. We just wanted to set
up tents."
Christina Bates
member of Students for a Human
Society


The society was planning to fea-
ture a "tent city" to represent the liv-
ing conditions of some of the home-
less in Gainesville, Reznik said.
Zdziarski said the society never
mentioned the tents when registering
the event, which he said violated a
UF policy. However, he said the so-
ciety was asked to reschedule so its
event could be differentiated from the
coalition's campout. He invited the
group to come back so it could host
its event according to UF policies.
However, Reznik disagreed with
the decision to void the permit, say-
ing the coalition's plans didn't of-
ficially have anything to do with the
society's event.

Controversial cartoonist to speak


By ALEX TIEGEN
Alligator Staff Writer
atiegen@alligator.org

Cartoonist Keith "Keef" Knight
has to be careful when checking
his mail. Each envelope could con-
tain anything from marijuana from
fans to death threats from critics.
But that's what happens when you
draw cartoons about the controver-
sial subjects of politics and race.
The creator of the semiautobio-
graphical K Chronicles and thinkk
comics will speak at UF today about
his career and how students can use
their creativity. The speech is at 5:30
p.m. in Turlington Hall, Room L011.
Knight and his twin sister, who
he later incorporated into his comics
as his "evil" twin, were born into a
lower-middle-class family in 1966.
Knight grew up on a strict diet
of classic Warner Bros. and Looney
Tunes cartoons. His favorites were
old Daffy Duck cartoons by Chuck
Jones and Bob Clampett. Knight
reproduced the cartoon characters'
expressive eyes in his drawings. He
was also inspired by the drawings in


Mad Magazine and the illustrations
on Parliament-Funkadelic albums.
'I could spend hours looking at
those drawings," Knight said.
When the first Star Wars movie
landed in theaters in 1977, an 11-
year-old Knight embarked on an
attempt at superhero art. Working
from his cousins'
ideas:' for Star
Wars-like char-
acters, Knight
illustrated the
adventures of
characters like
CaptainNeptune,
Knight Zap Man, Otis,
the Friend of
Justice. After graduating college,
Knight resurrected them in some of
his early comics.
Knight received some of his most
memorable lessons about race rela-
tions after entering middle school
in the late 1970s. The long battle to
desegregate public buses in Boston
had stressed race relations in the city
and the surrounding area. While
camping with his friends, Knight
was accused of stealing a canoe by


the white campground manager
and ejected from the grounds.
"The accusation was absurd be-
cause everyone knows black people
can't swim," Knight said, mocking
an old stereotype.
After moving to San Francisco
in 1990, he grew intrigued with
cartoonists, such as Nina Paley,
who drew their life stories. As time
passed by, he realized his adventures
and observations as a black man in
America gave him a voice that was
absent from the comic scene at the
time, giving birth to his comic: The
K Chronicles. His drawings in this
series are semiautobiographical.
stories mixed with drawings on race
and politics.
Though he started by selling his
work to independent publications,
his comics are now published in
more than 30 publications, includ-
ing Mad Magazine.
Knight's speech is sponsored by
OASIS, a program that aids with
recruitment and retention of minori-
ties at UF. It cost $2,000 of university
money, in addition to airfare and
other expenses.

faculty needs to have a discussion that's not on the back of a
political candidate."
The criteria for nomination for an honorary degree in-
cludes achievement in scholarship or high distinction in
public service, according to the UF Web site. Preference is
given to those who are connected in
UJF some significant way with the state
Administration or the university.
At the meeting, UF Provost Janie
Fouke said that many political figures have been given
honorary degrees. Six former governors have been awarded
honorary degrees at UF, and Fouke said giving high-profile
people the degrees could benefit the university.
"We could bring some really cool people in if we were
aggressive," Fouke said. "I think we've got the opportunity
to exploit the mechanism for the improvement of the institu-
tion."
Andrew P. Hines Jr., a mechanical engineer and UF alum-
nus, and Barry C. Barish, a professor emeritus of physics at
the California Institute of Technology, were both approved
for degrees, although UF President Bernie Machen will have.
to approve their degrees.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, MARCH 23,2007


Editorial
The week after Spring Break is always the worst. Sure,
we're more than halfway through the semester, but from here
on out, there are no (official) days off. The days are literally
getting longer, thanks to the approach of summer.
So it comes as no surprise that things are a little slow here
in the Darts & Laurels Department. Typing each sentence
takes us a few extra minutes. And it seems like we even have
to wait longer for our rolls from Leonardo's Pizza --but
they're worth it. So in honor of all this lethargy, we bring you
this week's lackadaisical edition of...



Darts & Laurels

First up, it's a we're-really-just-jealous-you-have-that-
kind-of-money DART to students who went on fabulous
trips, cruises and spending sprees during Spring Break.
If we see one more Facebook album of tropical locales
and fruity alcoholic beverages complete with paper
umbrella we just might scream. All that revelry can't be
healthy. Especially on your livers.
But on a similar note, here's a thanks-for-doing-some-
good-for-humanity LAUREL to selfless students who
devoted their week to helping others. It's people like that
who make us feel bad about ourselves for sitting around
and guzzling Belgian lambics. Well, so much for our liv-
ers, too.
Up next, we hand a you've-gotta-fight-for-your-right-
to-peace LAUREL to the Gainesville Area Students for a
Democratic Society for its anti-war rally Tuesday. Kudos,
of course, for holding the protest in the first place we
students should have organized something like this long
ago.
But we especially loved that about 10 students, not
just the permitted one, streamed into UF President Bernie
Machen's office. For those who drank post-protest free
Gatorade at the Student Health Care-Center, we hope it
tasted sweeter than ever.
And here's a please-phrase-your-response-in-the-form-
of-a-question LAUREL to UF alumnus James Kirby for
showing his challengers who's boss on Jeopardy! this
week. As a former Alligator sports writer, we'll vouch
that he comes from a great background. We'll even forgive
him for misspelling Alan Shepard's name fact error!
--in Final Jeopardy! because he clinched the win after the
show's first ever three-way tie.
It's been a long week, like we said. We're feeling a little
crabby, so we'll only be throwing darts from here on out.
So here's a only-three-of-the-four-justices-got-this-
case-wrong DART for the Student Government Supreme
Court. We still haven't forgiven the court for stripping
Alan Passman of his Student Senate seat because of some-
thing the Pants Party not he personally did. Last
we checked, if people follow the rules, they shouldn't be
punished.
Passman did not hand out "I Voted" stickers after the
Elections Commission issued the cease-and-desist order to
Pants, yet he still lost his seat. It doesn't add up.
Last but not least, we have a yeah-that's-a-great-way-to-
deter-crime DART to the Gainesville Police Department
for saying it will prosecute victims of drug-related crimes
if they possess narcotics. This could deter victims from
reporting violent crimes giving the perpetrators more
reason to continue their attacks.
We understand what they are doing is illegal, but
punishing a victim to the fullest extent of the law is harsh.
Shouldn't GPD focus on prosecuting the violent attack-
ers who are actually disrupting people's lives? Nah. That
would make too much sense.

Column

Greeks must keep pace with technology


he Greek community needs to get its act together
before everyone else realizes how irrelevant it is
becoming.
In an age when students are more comfortable
Facebook poking and instant messaging than giving a
simple handshake or making a phone call, Greeks are
shunning new technology and clinging to their 1970s
"Animal House" image as boozehounds and party
animals.
But with incoming students, growing up with com-
puters as a home staple and with cell phones replacing
land lines, Greeks should embrace the new technology
as a way to reach new members and share the organi-
zational values they rely on. However, they refuse to
do so, and their numbers are declining almost as fast as
some newspapers' circulations.
As a result, Web sites like Facebook and MySpace are
replacing fraternities and sororities as the best places
to network and build professional connections for life
after college.
No longer are students required to go through weeks
of pledging to join a close-knit group of men or women.
Instead, they log on to their computers and have access
to millions of students and adults.
A few years ago, anyone with hopes of getting in-
volved in Student Government, Accent or any other
major student organization at UF had to be Greek.
Since fall 2004, two of the three Student Body
presidents were not part of the Interfraternity Council.
Current Student Body President John Boyles has no
Greek affiliation at all. In SG elections, the non-Greek
party still manages to put up a fight even with candi-
dates deemed unqualified for office.
Florida Blue Key, UF's most renowned secret society,
also had a non-Greek president last semester and had
perhaps its least controversial semester in years.
Hmm ... maybe the non-Greeks know what it takes


to do things right.
Or perhaps the allure of se-
cret rituals is fading. Maybe the
distractions of weekly meet-
ings, social events and an ever-
revolving list of friends are too
Gordon Van Owen much to handle.
letters@alligator.org Then again, maybe a fresh-
man class with an average
grade point average higher than a 4.0 has better things
to do than spend weeks rushing an organization that
provides little more personal benefit than a free Web
site.
To stay pertinent in a generation when students are
growing more and more concerned with social issues,
helping the needy and personal values, Greeks need to
re-examine their current image. Perhaps the best solu-
tion is to look back to the past and evaluate why their
organizations were formed in the first place: to bring
people of like-minded values together.
Maybe that's where the rebirth of the Greek com-
munity lies in the very values its organizations were
born around.
Our generation strives for more opportunities to
help others. Greek organizations should provide just
that. They should help students feed the homeless,
clothe the poor and reach out to those in need.
Fraternities and sororities, regardless of the council
affiliation, need to drop the "Old School" image and
revamp 'themselves as pro-community, pro-personal
development groups. It's the ultimate public relations
job in the history of college campuses.
Politics need to be put aside, and all four Greek
councils need to work together before as cast into the
same junk bins as cassette decks and 8-track players.

student. His column appears on Fridays. .

Wall art captivates local man


WALL, from page 1


take another picture of a different section.
Anything on the wall that interested
him, amazed him or made him laugh was
chronicled on film.
"Some were touching and poignant.
Some were filthy," Laskin said. "I just
kept shooting."
For the next 11 years, Laskin took
hundreds upon hundreds of photos of
birthday announcements, memorials to
friends, endearing poems, graffiti scrib-
bles and dating proposals. Some paintings
rallied against wars while others cheered
for the Gators. Laskin captured them all.
"I think the gift that these artists have
given this town over the years is beauti-
ful," he said. "They've basically docu-
mented everything."
Laskin stopped taking the pictures in
2000, when he said the art on the wall no
longer captivated him. He still has the
heaps of pictures, however, and is contrib-
uting them all to The Concrete Blog. The
project needs all of the pictures it can get.
Besides the countless layers of scrawl-
ing, the wall has a history of its own. After
its birth in '79, the wall went through


growing pains.Students and locals were
comfortable using the wall as a public
easel, but some residents and city officials
weren't as taken. At first, they said the
graffiti was illegal.
Over time, those same officials began
to accept the wall as a citywide memorial
when then UF student Adam Tritt, along
with several friends, painted a memorial
in 1990 to the five Gainesville students
murdered by serial
Around killer Danny Rolling.
,. ,'? Vi:Ce With strokes of paint
in black, red and white,
the friends quieted the wall's opposition.
Sixteen years later, the memorial still
stands although it's been repainted
nore times than anyone can remember.
The territory on each side of the
framed panel is still paintable. In fact, stu-
dents can be seen at the wall all the time
painting their own designs.
Ryan Morrow, a UF nuclear engineer-
ing junior, painted the wall for love. On
Nov. 12, he and a friend spent an hour
painting a dating proposal to a girl he
liked. After a friend brought her to the
wall, Morrow met her with flowers and
showed her the wall.The two of them are
still together.


Past protests attracted thousands


ACTIVISM, from page 1

But he pointed out that although UF's
student population has doubled since his
time there in the early 1970s, only a few
hundred students attended this protest.
Three decades ago, he said, the Plaza of
the Americas was the scene of hundreds of
demonstrations that attracted thousands
of people.
Aside from the Vietnam War, UF
students demonstrated for civil rights,
women's rights and other issues.
"A lot of the rights that students have
today they have because we fought for
those rights," he said.
While at UF, Camil spent time in jail
for crimes associated with his political ac-
tions. He estimated he had been arrested
about 14 times while he was a student. He
was never convicted of a crime.
Camil said students today lack the
passion for democracy and dedication
to change that students of his generation
had. He blames the difference partly on


the lack of a draft, but also on a deeper
problem with modern education.
"Back then, we were taught that this is
a democracy," he said. "Somewhere along
the line in the last 30 years, things have
changed. Kids don't learn about civics.
They don't learn about the Constitution.
They don't learn about civil rights."
Camil said now, Gainesville's peace
and justice movement is led mostly by
adult community members, but back then
it was almost completely student-based.
The Gainesville Area Students for a
"Back then, we were taught
that this is a democracy."

Democratic Society is a reincarnation of
the organization of the same name that
was much more active in the '60s and '70s,
said UF sophomore and society member
Tina Steiger.
It was reformed in 2006.

^INEW F O FRESH SALADS


Last year, you knew Crispers as the quick, delicious alternative to fast food. You went for
garden fresh gourmet recipe salads instead of pitiful pizza. You glommed on to hearty
stacked sandwiches with plenty of fresh fixings, and passed on the substandard subs.
Well, this year, Crispers is the place for lunch AND dinner...with a NEW menu of
HOT entree items that'll really tickle your fancy. (If you've ever had your fancy tickled,
you know how exciting it can be).
We're talking about our new Big BIG baked potato...a ridiculously large potato,
covered with all kinds of yummy stuff...pot roast,Tex Mex chicken, and more. Plus there's
a variety of flat breads with toppings that are great as a snack or a complete meal.
Then, we've got new HOT toasted sandwiches, which includes the best Reuben you've
ever tasted, probably.
Of course, you'll still enjoy our garden fresh gourmet salads, hearty stacked sandwiches,
wraps, soups, gumbos, chowders, and, for the occasional splurge, a selection of desserts,
sundaes, milk shakes, smoothies, and other frozen treats. That's what Crispers is all about.

UF SOFTBALL

Gators take two from Tigers


By KARL HYPPOLITE
*, Alligator Writer

Princeton may be home to the
nation's best and brightest, but it
couldn't figure out the UF soft-
ball team in Thursday's double-
header.
The Gators (24-14, 2-6
Southeastern Conference) took
the first game 1-0, improving UF's
record in one-run games to 6-8.
UF embarrassed the Tigers in the
second game as right fielder Mary
Ratliff's two-run home run in the
bottom of the fifth inning gave UF
the 9-0 win.
Holding a lead greater than
eight runs after the fifth inning
stopped play on account of the
mercy rule.
"It's good to get one," said
Ratliff, who finished the night
2 for 5 with two RBI. "I've been
waiting about three years, so it re-
a-' feels good. I had no idea I was
going to hit it out.
"Coach and everybody else
have really been razzing me lately
because I've hit every part of the
wall, but I haven't been able to
get it out of the field they make
fun of me and say I have warning


track power."
Pitcher Stacey Stevens got UF
off to a hot start in the second
game with four strikeouts in the
first two innings. She allowed
'the first two batters to get hits but
quickly settled down, retiring the
next 15 batters and finished the
game with six strikeouts.
"I gave up a
Sfew hits there,".
she said. "But
Sthe hits they got
weren't doubles
or anything like
il A that, but they
.Ls weren't my best
Stevens pitches. After
winning a tough
one-run game I can't go out there
and give up hits like that. It's just
a matter of throwing my best
pitches."
Coach Tim Walton was
pleased with what he considers to
be Stevens' best performance this
season and the implications it may
have on the rest of the season.
"That's Stacey Stevens at her
best," he said. "When she's pitch-
ing like that, we're going to be
tough to beat, and we'll be play-
ing late into the season."


Center fielder Lacy Howard
kept the early momentum going
in the bottom of the first when
she hit a two-run homer for the
2-0 lead.
It was Howard's team-leading
fourth home run of the season and
second in as many days.
Howard wasn't done yet. The
senior doubled into left field in
the bottom of the second, driving
in shortstop Lauren Roussell and
first baseman Alexandra Gardiner
to give the Gators a 7-0 lead.
Pitcher Stacey Nelson won
her fourth one-run game of the
season. The sophomore allowed
just two hits and struck out three
in her sixth complete game this
year.
The-Gators are hoping to ride
the momentum of their current
four-game winning streak into
this weekend's series against No.
19 Georgia at the Florida Softball
Stadium at 1 p.m. Saturday.
"Having something like this
before Georgia is always big,"
Ratliff said. "That's such a big
rivalry and emotions are going
to be running high for Georgia.
We're going to come out ready to
play and swing the bats."

UF hopes for rejuvenation


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org
A couple of weeks ago, Pat McMahon
had a problem.
The UF baseball coach was struggling
to get consistent hitting from his lineup
outside of the top three hitters.
He started sophomore Avery Barnes
for a few games to see what the local
High Springs native could offer.
Flash forward to this week, and
McMahon is all smiles.
"He's done a really good job, in the
field," he said. "Avery's been a clutch
performer for us too. His on-base per-
centage has been a critical component
(of the offense)."
The coach has a point.
Barnes is batting .288 with a .333 on-
base percentage. He has also scored 18
runs third most on the team, despite
only becoming an everyday starter
against Kent State on Feb. 23.

"The goal of any player here is to try

The UF women's tennis team has a
new storyline as it plays this weekend. For
the first time this season, the No. 2 Gators
(11-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) are
rebounding from a loss.
UF heads on the road again this week-
end, facing Arkansas (7-6, 0-4 SEC) at 3
this afternoon and LSU (8-5, 1-3 SEC) at
1 p.m. Sunday.
The Gators defeated both teams 7-0 last
season at home.
UF has had a long time to stew over its
last match, a tough 4-3 defeat at the hands
of now-No. 1 Georgia on March 11.
"The loss to Georgia was a very well
played match, from both parts," UF coach
Roland Thomqvist said. "Fitness played a
part, particularly at (courts) one, two and
three."


*NCAA Tournament:
Butler vs. UF CBS, 7:10 p.m;
INCAA Tournament: Southern Cal
vs. North Carolina CBS, 9:57 p.m.


Prior to the Georgia match, UF had
won three matches 4-3.
"Sometimes you come off a loss like
this and you learn a lot," Thomqvist said.
"We've had these 4-3 dose
Tgnns wins before and you're so
happy to win that you
don't maybe pay attention
Tennis to the little things as much
as you do when it really
hurts when you lose one
of these 4-3 matches."
UF worked on fitness during spring
break before taking the last three days off
to recoup.
While able to practice, injuries had kept
the Gators from working on their fitness
as much as Thomqvist would have liked.

"We couldn't really run,"

SPECIAL


TACTICS


Donovan inspires with diverse cast of speakers


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org

It's been seven years since Memphis
Grizzlies forward Mike Miller suited up in his
No. 13 Gators jersey under Billy Donovan's
guidance, but not much about the UF coach
has changed.
Perhaps the reason for the Gators' unprec-
edented success during Donovan's 11-year
tenure is the way he motivates his team.
"That's what makes him the best coach in
college basketball," Miller said.
It's Donovan's constant brainstorming that
has led him to use homemade gimmicks to
inspire his players.
It's his brainstorming that made him dress
up as a cop before UF's game at Auburn to
demonstrate the Gators' play to break up op-
ponents' parties on the road.
It's his brainstorming that has led him to
bring in famous names like three-time Super


Bowl championship coach Bill Belichick to
speak to the team.
"People talk a lot about the word motiva-
tion, and I think that sometimes when people
think about the word motivation, they think
it's a rah-rah speech everyday," Donovan
said. "There are different ways of motivating
different people."
In Miller's sophomore year, his last at UF
before turning pro, Donovan required the
players to wear white sweatbands around
their wrists or ankles during the NCAA
Tournament.
Donovan had the players write the name
of a loved one on each of their bands to re-
mind them that they were playing for a cause,
for someone other than themselves.
Miller wrote "family." Udonis Haslem
wrote "Big Bro" for Sam Wooten, his half
brother who had passed away after a battle
with cancer.
The Gators made it all the way to the na-
tional championship game that year.
During the past four years, Donovan has
made sure there's never been a shortage of
motivation, and he's used inspirational fig-
ures as a way to create the desired effect.
During this season's juniors' careers, the
speaker they said they were most drawn to-
ward was Belichick.
"I don't know too much about the NFL,"
forward Joakim Noah said. "I mean, I didn't
even know the rules 'til I got here., I didn't
really know him that well before he came to
speak to us, but I started following a little


once he came to speak to us because I really
respected what he had to say."
The New England Patriots coach spoke to
the team last season after the Gators won the
Southeastern Conference Tournament and
delivered a very different message from the
praise the team had been receiving.
"He told us that if we play to that level,
we're going to go home," Noah said. "(He
said) you have to elevate your game. Elevate
your team play. Elevate your sacrifice. I
thought that was interesting that, even
though we won a championship and every-
one is congratulating us, he's really keeping
it real with us.
"I just think that's cool that a guy like that
shows his support and comes in to talk to col-
lege guys."
Belichick returned before the 2007 SEC
Tournament, this time with another message
and a different medium to explain it.
The coach played a video of the 1973 horse
race in which Secretariat, who became the
first Triple Crown winner in a quarter of a
century, ran away with the competition.
Although the race occurred before any of
the players were born, the story still resonated
with the team.
"The only reason why I knew about
Secretariat was because I used to watch all
the SportsCenturies on ESPN Classic," guard
Lee Humphrey said. "I thought that was one
of the coolest stories just how dominant he.
was."
Since that day, the Gators adopted a phi-
losophy that has become the focal point for
the rest of the season.
"He was just saying just never look back,"
Noah said. "That's going to be our motto: Just
never looking back. Just looking forward.
Being the best you can be."
While the team enjoyed everyone who
came to speak to them, some of the players
connected strongly with certain figures.
For senior Chris Richard, it was former
Detroit Pistons guard Isiah Thomas the
Pistons all-time leader in points, assists, steals
and games played who visited the team in
2003.
"He was basically telling us the same
things that coach told us," Richard said. "Just
go out every night, play it like it's your last
Sand try to stay focused and stay humble."
For forward Al Horford, it was 2006 World
--Series Ch;. i pl itin N. Louis Cardinals manager
Tony La Russa. Horford's a Cardinals fan and
admires his fellow Dominican, first baseman
Albert Pujols.
The players said they've never been star
struck when someone enters the locker
room, but the closest they've ever been was
in October 2006 when former Los Angeles
Lakers guard Jerry West walked through the
door.
'\\e were surprised," Taurean Green said.
"It's an honor when you have the guy who's
the NBA logo come and talk to you."
West- the man'responsible for swishing a
60-foot buzzer beater that tied Game 3 of the
1970 NBA Finals against the New York Kiiicks
spoke about winning and the mindset
players need before games.
"It was weird he's the greatest shooter
ever, Mr. Clutch," junior Corey Brewer said.
Donovan has also brought in speakers who
weren't athletes, and they have been just as
effective, if not more so.
In 2004, 'when Donovan felt the Gators
were tired and weren't pushing themselves,
he brought in a Navy SEAL to speak about
Hell Week so the players wouldput their
exhaustion in perspective.
"I respected him more than any of the
other people (Donovan) brought in, because
he's been through a lot of things," Richard

UF saddled with weight of success


s UF treks to the Midwest for the second con-
secutive season, it has the weight of history
and heavy expectations on its shoulders.
The Gators are competing against that history and
tremendous hype that has enveloped the program
during the past year.
The one fundamental question that has to be an-
swered by fans is this: If the Gators lose this week-
end and don't make it back to the Final Four, would
they consider this season a success?
Never have expectations for one team changed
so radically from one season to another.
This time last year, fans were thrilled that UF had
finally gotten out of the first weekend of the NCAA
Tournament.
The rest was gravy. The national championship
was beyond a dream.
Now, winning this weekend is not only expect-
ed, it's almost considered a birthright.
There's no way a team with three possible lottery
picks and all this experience could fail to at least get
back to the Final Four, right?
Consider, however, the plight of the 1998 Arizona
squad that returned all five of its starters, including
future NBA All-Star Mike Bibby, and still fell a game
short of the Final Four, losing to Utah.
Even if a team makes it to the Final Four, repeat
success is not assured.
See a 1995 Arkansas team, who returned five
starters from its national title team, including future
first-round draft pick Corliss Williamson, yet still
lost in the national title game to UCLA, which won
its first title since John Wooden's exit.
It is remarkable that a season in which the team
saw five players crack the 1,000-point career mark,


won the second Southeastern
Conference regular season
title in school history, won

ence tournament title, won
the SEC Sixth Man of the
Dan Treat Year Award and managed a
Dan in Motion Sweet 16 appearance could
dtreat@alligator.org be considered anything but
successful.
Yet, if UF doesn't win this
weekend, the year will feel incomplete and hollow,
because there was greater success to be had that
ultimately wasn't achieved.
Before you say that it is a media-created expecta-
tion, think if you, deep down, would feel that this
team, with these players, really reached its potential
if it fell in a critical spot to a team that it is clearly
superior to.
Point is, the Gators draw is wide open.
Butler is a nice story, but it lacks the interior
presence necessary to contain the three-headed Al
Horford-Chris Richard-Joakim Noah monster.
If they get past that, and they should, the Gators
also have clear advantages against both Oregon and
UNLV, one of which they'd face in the next round.
Essentially, the Gators have no excuse not to
prepare for a trip up Interstate-75 to Atlanta one
week from now, but how will you feel if they aren't
headed that way?
Will you feel angry? Disappointed? Content?
Fate, however, is still in the Gators' hands. They
can curtail this debate by going out and taking care
of business this weekend.
UF is the best team. Now it's time to prove it.

Underdog Bulldogs on the rise


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org


If Butler needs any reminder
of how oddsmakers measure it up
against mighty UF, it can look at
its home stadium.
ial The Bulldogs, the regular-sea-
.- son champions of the Horizon
League, play in Hinkle Fieldhouse,
I a site for the classic basketball
d movie "Hoosiers."
Providers' Like the film's Hickory squad,
the Bulldogs head into' their big
game, Friday's Sweet 16 date, as
the underdogs.
That's just fine with Coach
Todd Lickliter.
"We always see ourselves prob-
ably as the underdog," he said.
But that label is fading.
Butler has helped lead the
movement of the mid-major in the
last few years and earned a No. 5
Sh seed in the NCAA Tournament, its
highest ever.
The No. 21 Bulldogs (29-6) won
the regular-season Horizon title in
addition to the postseason auto-
matic bid.
They won the NIT Season
Tip-Off, posting resume victories
against Notre Dame, Indiana,
*r Tennessee and Gonzaga in New
York's Madison Square Garden.


But the Bulldogs still hold a
small-town moniker.
Their top scorer, scrawny 6-
foot-1 guard A.J. Graves, said he's
seen "Hoosiers" about 100 times.
He hails from Switz City, Ind., a
town of about 300.

"We're going to try to make
whatever adjustments
we need to make without
changing the entire system,
without going away from our
philosophy."
Todd Lickliter
Butler men's basketball coach


He was the kid who shot on his
asphalt driveway until darkness
set in, the youngest of four hoops-
crazed brothers.
That work has paid off, as
Graves is one of the best shooters
in the country.
He averages more threes per
game than UF sharpshooter Lee
Humphrey.
Graves also ranks second in the
nation in free-throw shooting, at
95.3 percent.
Graves said he made 169 free
throws in a row during a high
school practice.
He feasted on Horizon foes this


season.
But can Graves and Butler's
small, jump-shooting lineup have
success against UF's powerful and
athletic arsenal?
"We're going to try to make
whatever adjustments we need to
make without changing the entire
system, without going away from
our philosophy," Lickliter said.
Jackson State used a similar
style in the first round, hanging
-with UF for 20 minutes.
Then the Gators exploded for
71 points in the second half and
finished with a 62-19 rebounding
advantage, an NCAA Tournament
record.
"We have so many weapons,"
UF forward Chris Richard said.
"They have to pick which one they
want to take out, and then every-
body else has to step up."
Butler knows advancing would
take a major effort, but they're
hoping for some more Hoosier
Hysteria.
The Bulldogs almost did it
seven years ago, too. The then-12th
seeded Butler team lost to UF 69-68
in the first round.
"It's a daunting task," said
Butler assistant coach LaVall
Jordan, who played against UF in
the 2000 NCAA Tournament. "But
our guys are up for it."
