Tow companies, students clash over rules
By JESSICA PONN
Roam towing in Gainesville boils down to
a lack of respect.
The question is, respect from whom?
"They're dismissive, condescending, and
they're just like, 'Screw you, we're not going
to do anything for you,'" said UF student
Brie St. Lawrence about Gainesville towing
But in reference to those he tows, Mike
Weber, the owner of Superior Towing, said:
"They don't respect their neighbors, they
don't respect other people's property, so they
So where amid this towing controversy
- now a significant problem in a college town
short on parking can the truth be differenti-
ated from the catty comebacks?
The answer may lie in an unlikely place:
"The rules are different in just
about every place."
Superior Towing owner
Weber said it is property management
companies not towing firms that dictate
which parking indiscretions are handled with
a hook and a towrope and which are not.
"The rules are different in just about every
place," Weber said.
In Royal Village apartments, if a vehicle is
parked on a white line, it will not be towed,
said Derrick Gilland, assistant manager of the
complex. In Looking Glass apartments, that
same vehicle would be towed, Weber said.
St. Lawrence, who lives at Looking Glass,
said she has been towed twice this school year
for parking on a white line, or as Weber calls it,

* HE SAYS ART IS THERA-

Splattering paint on a canvas
is not just child's play. For Adam
Lansky, it's therapy.
When he feels overwhelmed
with stress and personal issues,
Lansky, a 23-year-old local artist,
resorts to painting.
He is creating his abstract,
emotion-filled art, called "action
painting," on Turlington Plaza this
week, to promote his modem art

onto canvases. When he flung the
paint, the streams fused and split

canvas. The result resembled a

work of art, not the finished piece

Lewis Black draws crowds with O-Dome performance
He was paid $50K for the show
By ADRIAN ERLENBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Thousands of students lined up
Wednesday night to see comedian Lewis
Black, a contributor to "The Daily Show
With John Stewart."
They began snaking along the sidewalk
outside the O'Connell Center before 5:30
p.m. in anticipation of Black's scheduled
performance at 8 p.m.
Black touched on topics such as
growing up Jewish, illegal immigration;
Mormons and flag-burning. He was paid
$50,000 for his performance.
His show followed that of comedian
John Bowman, who discussed topics such
as mountain climbing, George W. Bush's
"paddle hands" and the
aging Dick Clark.
UF sophomore Robert
Meckstroth said he en-
joyed both performances.
"I thought the whole
show was really funny,"
Meckstroth said. "The

Black talked about how electing Santa
Claus as president in 2008 would solve
the rift between the Democrats and
Republicans in the legislature and bring
the whole country together.
"Even the Jews love Santa," Black said.
UF junior Christopher Cedros said
Black's body language is part of what
made him funny.

SG elections end in tie
SFCC Student Government
elections ended Wednesday_
without a dear winner.
After the community college's
student body voted Tuesday and
Wednesday, a dear majority did
not emerge, leaving the Genesis
and the United Students parties
to face off in a runoff election
This year was the largest
voter turnout SFCC has ever
seen, with 1,761 total votes 12
percent of the student body par-
Dan Rodkin, SFCC's associate
director of student life, said com-
munity colleges typically only
see a 2- to 3-percent student voter
turnout for SG elections.
However, the total number of
votes in each race varied.
Out of the 1,739 votes in the
executive race, Genesis Party
presidential candidate Kenny
Etienne and vice presidential
candidate Alina Gershonov re-
ceived 44 percent, while United
Students presidential candidate
Tara McDowell and vice presi-
dential candidate Ben Anderson
received 26 percent.
"I am very shocked and
pleased to see that the student
body wants to be more involved
with Student Government,"
Etienne said of the turnout.
McDowell said she antici-
pates that the One Party and the
Liger Party will join the United
Students Party to inform stu-,
dents about issues they are pre-
pared to tackle if elected.
The treasurer candidates
are Kaia Tershowski from the
Genesis Party and Kerrie Lynch
from the United Students Party.
Tershowski received 42
percent, and Lynch received 31
percent of the 1,728 votes.

McKenzie from Genesis received

kept in her bra to make her breasts appear to

But awkward dates are now a distant
memory for UF freshman Kellie Llona, who
had breast augmentation surgery when she
was 14 years old. Llona struggled for years
with insecurities because of the drastic dif-
ference in the sizes of her breasts, she said.
One was anA cup, and the other was a C.
A UF professor's study, which appears
in Plastic Surgical Nursing, was meant to
emphasize breast surgery cases like Llona's.
The study was conducted to show that
breast surgery isn't just a procedure done
for vanity reasons, said Cynthia Figueroa-
Haas, a UF clinical assistant professor.
Since the surgery is becoming more
popular; evaluating health professionals' at-

Figueroa-Haas conducted her study at
Barry University before coming to UP. She
surveyed 84 women between the ages of 21
and 57 before and after their surgeries and
found that most experienced increased self-
esteem and sexuality.

Before, a wet bathing suit would reveal

Although Llona said she first realized
in fifth grade that one breast was larger
than the other, middle school was when the
tears came. By eighth grade, Llona began to
doubt she'd ever fit in. She felt she couldn't
do things that her classmates took for grant-
ed, like wearing low-cut shirts or dating.
"I couldn't imagine ever having a boy-
friend," said Llona, who now has just ended
a two-year relationship.
Later in the school year, Llona's mother
decided to take her to a plastic surgeon. Her
insurance company covered the costs of the
surgery because she was diagnosed with
Poland syndrome, the underdevelopment
of the chest muscle on one side of the body.
With the implants, both of her breasts are
full C cups, she said.
Figueroa-Haas said her research was
conducted to raise more awareness, espe-
cially for health care providers, of the psy-
chological issues related to breast surgery.
She said she hopes her study leads to more
research on cosmetic surgery and self-es-
teem. But though the surgery can boost
confidence, it's not a cure-all, she said.
"If you have psychological issues, im-
plants won't help that," she said.
Although Llona said she was in pain and
still swollen after a week of recovery, she felt
better about herself almost immediately.
"Before the surgery, I thought people
should be happy with what they have,"
Llona said. "But if it's going to make you
happy, go for it."

Vigil raises rape awareness
* COORDINATORS WANT TO MAKE IT AN
ANNUAL EVENT AT UF.
By A.J. DAVIDSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students gathered Wednesday night on the
Plaza of the Americas for "Take Back the Night,"
a national campaign aimed at fighting and raising
awareness about sexual violence.
"The purpose of Take Back the Night' is to
generate awareness about sexual assault and rape,
to break the silence surrounding this issue, and to
basically work toward a community where rape
is not tolerated and rape doesn't happen," said
Jennifer Kent, a law student at UF and the event's
The event began at 7 p.m. with a candlelight vigil
honoring victims of sexual violence. Afterward stu-
dents, led by a police escort, marched to the Reitz
Union, where survivors shared their stories and
participants spoke about sexual violence.
"The speak-out gives people a voice and gives
them an opportunity to feel empowered, take back
their power and raise awareness about sexual vio-
lence," said Tanja van der Veen, a victim's advocate
with the Univesity Police Department. "It's putting
a face on the issue."
The event played host to a diverse crowd of
more than 50 students that included men, women,
survivors and those who simply wanted to aid.
"I am taking back the night because I'm a wom-
en's studies student," said Mallory Szymanski, a UF
graduate student. "I find it important to be teaching
about these issues in the classroom and to be put-
ting them into practice outside of the classroom."
Kent and her colleagues began planning the
event in September in an attempt to establish "Take
Back the Night" at UE The campaign is already
prevalent on many college campuses.
"It's not something that's really
On had an institutional history at UF,"
CaMP us Kent said. "We want to see 'Take Back
the Night' become an institution at the
University of Florida because it's more than just an
event it's a campaign, really, something to work
toward ending rape at the University of Florida and
Although the event saw a modest number of stu-
dents, coordinators were pleased with the turnout
and hope to increase numbers with future "Take
Back the Night" events.
"I thought it was amazing the fact that the
speak-out was able to provide a safe space for survi-
vors of sexual assault to come forward. For some of
them to get the help that they need, that to me was
worth a thousand of these," Kent said. "I think this
is a really strong beginning. It's something that is
the start of a movement."

We hope Chomp the Vote
sticks around this time
homp the Vote has finally returned. Well, almost. After
almost a year of inactivity, Chomp is accepting applica-
tions for a new director. Once it has a new one, it better hit
the ground running. It's got to make up for a lot of lost time.
Of course, the organization never should have gone away
in the first place. The Student Government-run organization
faltered under Director Hannah Hillman, who fell off the radar
when she should have been working to register new voters.
While Chomp was MIA, a lot happened. It missed state-
wide elections, in which we elected our new governor and a
U.S. senator, and then city elections, in which we voted for our
mayor and a city'commissioner. A pretty big deal, and some-
thing Chomp should not have let pass it by. But it's time for a
So what do we Want to see from the new and improved
Obviously, its priority should be registering new voters. But
it doesn't make sense to table year-round. We're procrastinators,
and we're damn proud of it. Instead, Chomp should bombard
us a few weeks before registration deadlines. High visibility -
and a huge annoyance factor will be more effective than one
lonely person sitting on Turlington Plaza with a stack of forms.
Students who are already registered to vote should yeg-
ister in Alachua County. This is, after all, where we spend at
least two-thirds of the year. Local politics affect us more than
what's going on back home. If we want a student-friendly City
Commission, we need to vote for it.
And Chomp needs to get people to care. How can it do that?
It's a hard question to answer, but working with Accent to bring
in political speakers and candidates for office is one way. It's
also important to bring in current politicians state senators,
local representatives and UF alumni who are currently serving

Tuition fee disguises the real problem
When Ifirst examined the "Academic Enhancement
Program" a semester ago, I supported it. Why
not charge incoming students $1,000 more each
year to hire more faculty and advisers? More than 70 per-
cent of students receive some form of the Bright Futures
scholarship already, and, after all, higher education comes
at a price.
But I've changed my mind. Universities like UF are es-
sential. Great education at an affordable price what's so
bad about that? Not every university, even Florida's flag-
ship, needs to function like a private one.
In a society where a college education is practically a
prerequisite for a making a decent living, increasing the
cost of education is not the answer. UF President Bernie
Machen is asking the wrong questions. He asks, "How
do I make this university a top-10 public university?" But
instead, he should ask, "What is the best possible way to
help students afford education?"
Machen has also been peculiarly vague about which
departments will benefit from the new hires. This univer-
sity has a strong proclivity toward supporting big-name
programs, such as the sciences and engineering where
the research money is while ignoring the less-market-
able programs like the arts and humanities.
And according to an article in The Gainesville Sun,
Machen made it quite clear that the university's future
growth would be in graduate programs. But the recently
conducted report by the Pappas Consulting Group Inc.
recommended that all public Florida universities focus
solely on undergraduate and not graduate programs. So
where will the new faculty hires go? Toward graduate or
True, the 100 new advisers are intended for under-
graduates. But why do we need more advisers? Part of
earning a college degree should be self-sufficiency. If you
can't navigate your way to a degree with the occasional
special visit to an adviser you probably don't deserve
Obviously, our. university
needs some improvements, and
charging $1,000 more per stu-
dent each year seems reasonable
but it's not that simple.
University of Central Florida's
Todd.PortnowitZ president, John Hitt, has al-
firstname.lastname@example.org ready admitted that if it passes,
the "Academic Enhancement
Program" would start a trend
of statewide charges. Hitt said UCF and other Florida
universities withheld from lobbying for their own tu-
ition hikes in order to boost the chances of UF's passing
- which would give those other schools the green light
for tuition increases.
Hopefully, Gov. Charlie Crist will hold to his "no new
tuition" claim and refuse to support the program. Let
Crist's will be done. Not because the reasons for the tu-
ition hike aren't logical, but because as a university and
as a state we're not trying hard enough or looking in
the right places for money to put toward education. We're
Money and education have always conflicted. The so-
lution is a matter of priority. As long as the state continues
to underfund education, the universities will be forced to
look elsewhere. This results in a standstill for UF. The state
refuses to properly fund education, while at the same time
it denies its universities the tuition hikes they need. It's a

UF's diversity hiring policies are racist
I have a few questions about the diversity
problems that plague Tigert Hall and the UF
faculty. What is UF's diversity goal? Is it to be
an institution where faculty and students are
judged not by their race, but by the content of
their character? If so, how could anyone just
look at the races of faculty members and tell
that there are diversity problems?
UF President Bernie Machen said, "The
numbers sort of speak for themselves"? I say
Machen is sort of racist. One could argue that
the numbers are smoke to a racist fire that is
ablaze. When 54 out of 65 top administrators
are white, something must be going on.
Look at the U.S. Census breakdown of the
U.S. population by race. Will the numbers tell
of a diverse university when the percentage of
each race in the faculty perfectly corresponds
to the percentage of each race in the nation's
population? I might be confusing diver-
sity and racism, but if achieving the former
requires a whole lot of the latter, I'd prefer to
be ignorant to the difference between the two.
SG should not fund partisan messages
On Page 8 of Tuesday's Alligator, an adver-
tisement appeared listing the signers of a peti-
tion that supports Israel. The group that paid
for it is not identified. Instead it says, "Paid
for by Student Government." While I do not
disagree with the petition I signed it and I
am listed in the ad students should ask their
senators "to investigate the possible misuse of
SG money. I may support Israel, but I do not
support the use of SG funds in an obviously
partisan political message.

doubled the suspension.

put no credence in them because
of their weak support. Fraternities

profit, but that doesn't matter to her
"1 love to do it," she said.
While most of Roxie's quilts have gone to
members of her vast extended family, the sign
by the road shepherds strangers in as well.
"They go by and see the sign every day,
and they just decide to stop." said Patrcia

said. "But we were."

Of Montreal plays tonight
DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER
Remedy raps 'P.E.A.C.E.'
Georgie Fruit is a 300-pound, black
she-male. She's in her mid-50s and has
seen it all: She writes funk songs for Of
Montreal and will be performing with
the band at Abbey Road tonight.
But Fruit lives only in the mind
of the wiry Kevin Barnes, singer and
guitarist of the Athens, Ga., band.
Her neighbors, to name a few, include
the eccentric Claude Robert and the
thoughtful, mellow Lisp Crispy.
Alter egos are powerful tools in
songwriting, said Bryan Poole, a
guitarist and band member since Of
"Sometimes you start to repeat
yourself," Poole said. "If you can place
yourself as a differ-
ent persona, it allows If you cc

Elf Power and gone as The Late B.P.
Helium on his solo efforts.
He said Barnes' ability to use differ-
ent personas in making Of Montreal's
latest album helped him express the
very personal content dealt with on the
The band's latest album, "Hissing
Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?" was
written by Barnes in the midst of the
time when he was going through a
separation with his wife. The marriage
was later reconciled.
Because the experience was so emo-
tional, Barnes had trouble letting the
other band members get involved in
the album, Poole said.
But totalitarianism over album con-
tent isn't anything new for Of Montreal.
Throughout the band's existence, it has
gone back and forth between band col-
laboration and Barnes' solo work.
Barnes recorded most of "Hissing
Fauna" himself while living in Norway,
Poole said. Even though Barnes had
shown the other band members his
initial ideas for songs, the end results
sometimes surprised them.
"When I hear that album as it's re-
leased now, sometimes I turn my head
and I'll be like, 'What? What the hell
was that? I don't remember that. Where
the hell did that'come from?'" Poole
said. "It may be a little bit weird for us
as a band to not have that participation
He said he hopes that the next album
will be more of a collective effort.
But performing live is a different
matter entirely. The band interacts on
stage in a bizarre display that is intend-
ed to "transport you to a weird place,"
Fashion is a large part of this vision,
he said. The band

ontreal make it a theatri-
cal thing," he said.
"There are so many bands that get up
there and play in an indie rock T-shirt
or something like that, and there's
nothing really wrong with that, per se,
but we want it to be a spectacle to kind
of take you out of just seeing a normal
show so you're like, 'Wow, what the hell
is going on?'"
Many fans were thinking exactly
that when Of Montreal played a show
in Las Vegas last month in which Kevin
Barnes came onstage completely naked,
save a cummerbund, which covered
"Kevin just wanted to see if he had
the balls to do it," Poole said. "No one
was really upset by it. If you were at
that show that night, you would prob-
ably be more upset about the black, gay
porn we had playing in the background
than Kevin actually getting naked."
It may not be the last show that
Barnes struts his stuff, but the band
will keep it toned down at the all-ages
shows, he said.
"Sometimes it's better when the
clothes are on," Poole said. "Leaves a
little bit to the imagination."
SHEM FLEENOR I AVENUE WRITER
Just after 4 p.m. in Midtown Manhattan
on March 22, Ross Filler better known
to hip-hop aficionados and indie-kids as
"Remedy" exhales a hazy, aromatic
plume of smoke.
Misty rays of sunlight cascade between
Bundled-up bicyclists and cheddar-yel-
low taxis zoom by like flashes of lightning.
"You've got to take a right here," said
Filler to his friend Jamie, the driver.
Filler gets calm and focused as the
jet-black Dodge Charger whips around
the corer towards the Hammerstein
Ballroom, where he'll perform his classic
anthem "Never Again" while marching
boxer Dmitry Salita to
the ring. [Rem
Salita is inspired by the a rap
legendary track, which metaf
helped propel the Wu- Josh Wel
Tang Killa Bee compila- sound
tion album, "The Swarm,
Vol. 1," featuring every
member of the Wu-Tang Clan, to sell more
than a million copies worldwide.
The track was inspired by Filler's family
members in Poland, who were killed dur-
ing the Holocaust.
"Mankind has been recording his-
tory for 5,000 years," Filler said. "The
Holocaust happened 60-something years
ago. I couldn't believe it. I still can't. The
whole world sat back and watched as mil-
lions were persecuted and killed. That's
what makes 'Never Again' so important,
In 1998, after Filler spent years unearth-
ing his roots, RZA, the founder of Wu-Tang
Clan, approached him to add a track to
The album proved to be the perfect
rocket to blast "Never Again" into orbit.
The song was written and refined during
two simmering, soul-searching months.
Filler's mental image of his Uncle Boris
being shof in the back and of his family be-
ing herded onto cattle trains and provided
inspiration for the track.
"The beat was just so deep," he said. "It
just kind of came together. I cried a bunch
of times making that."
His "search for self-knowledge" took
him to Israel, a country that, he said, for
Jews, feels like a warm hug on a cold day
from a loved one you thought you'd never
"There's good spirits flying around in
Israel," he said. "It's beautiful. I lived there
90 days and saw the sunrise 73 times."
In 2004, he produced "New York to
Israel," a compilation featuring some of
Israel's sharpest producers and lyricists,
including rapper Subliminal.
But his trip to Israel was as much spiri-
tual odyssey as it was business venture.
His odyssey brings him to UF tonight.
He plans to perform some classics and new
tracks such as "Israel," an evolutionary
account of Jewish history that's as much a
doctoral thesis as it is hip-hop.
The sunset performance is hosted by
Hillel and takes place

/ 20 at Florida Atlantic
"Don't just expect a hip-hop show, ex-
pect a religious experience," Wetherington
said. "He's not just.a rapper. He's a poet
Filler's performance tonight is meant
to promote the RemedyIsraelProgram and
spark an enhanced concept of Jewish self-
identity through hip-hop.
"But it's not just for Jews," he said.
"Hip-hop belongs to all of humanity."
Filler has been known to push
"P.E.A.C.E." on stage. The acronym stands
for Positive Education Always Corrects
He is confident that education is a giant
leap toward ending the hatred festering be-
tween Muslims, Jews and Christians.
Filler's philosophical stamp is evident
in all his artistic and economic ventures,
including his record label, Code Red,
which produced fellow Wu family mem-
ber Cappadonna's latest album, "The
"The only thing that separates man
from beast is our brains," he said. "Yeah,
some people only respect violence man's
always just one step away from doing some
crazy shit. But in the end, you've got to
keep the faith. You know?"

Jessie Mudd has lost his game in Gainesville I
By DANNY KLEIN
Every golfer has his own swing.
Some are born with it; others spend their entire lives look-
ing for it.
But for those who are lucky enough to find their swing, it
can be just as easily forgotten and in this sport it may never
come back. As the only senior on the UF's men's golf team,
Jessie Mudd is still looking.
Mudd doesn't see much playing time these days, but there
was a time when his was the next big thing, the next great
Gators golfer. Mudd remembers these days, and recounts a
story that is not a typical fall from grace, rather
a chance lost but not forgotten.
Mudd may soon find what he's looking for,
or he may not it's hard to say. in my game
The Early Years Je
Mudd began playing at the age of 3. His father put a
dub in his hand hoping he would follow in the footsteps of his
son's two uncles both PGA Tour professionals.
Mudd picked up the game quickly.
"Ever since I could remember, I had a set of golf dubs
around," he said. "I always enjoyed playing."
Mudd's high school days are full of accolades. He led St.
Xavier High School in Louisville, Ky., to three state champion-
ships in 1998-99,2001-02 and 2002-03.
Along the way, he was named Kentucky's Mr. Golf twice
and headed into his senior year ranked as the No. 1 high school
player in the country by Golfweek.
The expectations were high for Mudd as he began to look
ahead. With two relatives connected to UF coach Buddy
Alexander, the decision was an easy one.
"Warm weather," Mudd said smiling. "How could you go
The College Life
In his first year at UF, Mudd played on one of the greatest
teams in school history.
In 2003-04, the team finished in the top five in all 11 of its
matches, including seven first-place finishes. However, the
season would come to a disappointing end when the Gators
finished sixth in the NCAA Championships. Playing alongside
Gators legend Camilo Villegas, Mudd was the hot-shot fresh-
man. He was a PING honorable mention All-American, named
Co-Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year and was a
second-team All-SEC selection.
Mudd also posted the fourth-best scoring average by a
freshman in school history (72.69). It was here that he made
what he calls the biggest mistake of his life.
"I didn't play even once over the summer," he said with his
eyes turned downward. "I came back pretty rusty."
Things got worse for Mudd.
Season-ending ankle surgery forced him to redshirt the
2004-05 season, missing even more time.
"When you take that much time off it begins to take a toll on
you," he said. "Mentally you begin to think you're going to be
rusty and when you are, a few bad scores here and there really
hurt your confidence."
When Mudd returned he said his confi-
dence was gone.
..But I just can't seem "I lost the belief that I could hit a good
shot at any time of the round," he said.
ssie Mudd Mudd has no idea why he took the sum-
mer of 2004 off. He said he wishes he could change
the past, but hindsight is 20-20.
If he could do it all over again he would have played every
chance he could. Hopefully then he would have been able to
weather the time spent recovering from his injury.
"I wish I only knew," he said. "Sometimes there are no good
In 2005-06, Mudd played individually in two tourna-
ments, finishing 23th and 66th respectively.
He only saw team action once, where at the Shoal Creek
Invitational he recorded a combined score of 231(15 over par),
which was good for a tie for 63rd place.
Mudd hoped to see more action this spring.
Playing time is up for grabs on this young Gators team,
where inconsistency at the three, four and fives spots have
opened things up. So far, the Gators have played four tourna-
ments. Mudd has not picked up a dub for competitive play.
UF opened the season at the Gator Invitational, winning
by 11 strokes behind strong play from junior Manuel Villegas,
who won the individual medal with a three-round total of 204
(6 under par), and sophomore All American Billy Horschel,
who carded a 68 (2 under) in his final round.
However, after the match Alexander said the team lacked
consistency and the lineup was due to change.
"After Manuel and Billy it's really up for grabs," he said. "I

need somebody to blossom between now and June."
Mudd is fully aware of this opportunity, but said his game
still remains inconsistent.
"Its going to take a lot," he said. "I would have to shoot
a lot of really low numbers and everyone else would need to
The Gators have one meet before the postseason, the U.S.
Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, Ga.
There isn't much time left for Mudd to put back together the
shattered expectations from a few years ago.
"I do see real improvement in my game," Mudd said. "But I
just can't seem to connect it all together."
Mudd's experience has changed his outlook on life.
When he was a freshman, he had aspirations of leaving col-
lege after his sophomore year and going pro. Now, the plan has
changed. Mudd still hopes to one day reach that pinnade but
knows the path will not be an easy one.
"The experience was an eye-opening one," he said.
"Sometimes things don't go your way, but that doesn't mean
you can give up. I may not be as confident as I once was, but
I know I can do it, its just going to be a lot of hard work, a lot
Getting there won't be easy, but Mudd has the support of his
teammates and coaches, especially Manuel Villegas. Villegas
and Mudd came to UF in the same freshman dass and have
been friends the entire time. Villegas sends text messages to
Mudd telling him he's playing better and to keep practicing.
The two players have gone in opposite directions over their
careers, as Villegas is now one of the top players in the country.
Mudd said there is no jealously, just a lot of appreciation and
pride. Mudd played with Villegas' brother Camilo and said
there are no similarities.
"Camilo was a perfectionist," he said. "Manny loses stuff all
the time. During the Gator Invitational he lost his keys on the
fourth hole, I'm not even sure how you do that."
Mudd said Alexander often pulls, him aside and tells him
how he's improving. He has also been seeing team psycholo-
gist Gio Valiante, hoping to instill a positive attitude as he looks
"He's a warrior in my book," Alexander said. "Most people
don't go from being such a great talent to where he is in their
careers, but he never gives up. I have so much respect for
Mudd believes his troubles are mental, and a golf swing
once considered one of the best in the nation still lurks within.
"It's there if you look hard enough," he said. "You just have
to find it."

UF running back Kestahn Moore takes a carry during the Gators' practice

* BRANDON JAMES IS SECOND ON THE
By MIKE MCCALL
With the loss of starting running back DeShawn
Wynn, the UF football team is looking for a replace-
ment for last year's leading rusher.
UF coahd Urban Meyer said the Gators have
found their answer in junior Kestahn Moore.
"K-Mo is really doing well, he's our starting tail-
back," Meyer said. "Brandon James is No. 2, and
then (Chevon Walker) and Mon (Williams)."
In addition to strong spring practices, Moore
has improved as a leader as well.
"He's taken on the leadership role, and he's do-
ing everything right with the way he's practic-
ing and his whole demeanor," UF running backs
coach Stan Drayton said.
"The way he's leading that group right now is
really impressing me. I'm proud of him."
All four backs looked strong in Wednesday's
practice, but Walker distinguished himself with
several big runs.
"He came out of a couple of piles and showed a
little speed like he has," Meyer said.
James has performed well in the backfield but
will remain on special teams.
The Gators worked on kickoff returns for the
first time this spring, with James and Jarred Fayson
getting most of the work.
Despite having just one upperclassman at run-
ning back, Drayton is confident his young group
will improve and make an impact.
"These guys are determined to get better," he
said. "Today we came out and ran the ball pretty
hard. I see a lot of great effort coming out of this
backfield right now."

With a clean slate, he is determined to crack the

"I feel like the pressure is all on me," he said.
"(The coaches) were looking forward to me (partic-

year I'm trying to put everything I have into it so I
don't let them down again. I'm really excited now
to play in the Swamp. It's going to be crazy."

Freshman Hall keeps momentum going in first year

The sprinter won three events last week
By DAVID CHAUNCEY
Freshman Jeremy Hall is mak-
ing the most of his first year.
He already snapped a 30-year-
old record by becoming the first
freshman to win the 60-meter dash
at the Southeastern Conference
Championships a few weeks ago,
and he -continued that momen-
tum last weekend in the Jim Click
Shoot-Out, winning three events.
Hall won the 100- and 200-meter
sprints and also ran on the winning
4x100 relay at the Shoot-Out and
was named SEC runner of the week
His team looks to continue the
momentum from the Shoot-Out
this weekend at the Florida State
"It feels great," Hall said. "I am
accomplishing things I thought
would take two or three years."
But Hall and the coaching staff
know that starting strong means
little in the long run.
"(SEC runner of the week) is-
a great award, but that's not our
goal," UF coach Mike Holloway
said. "Our goals are to keep getting
better, and play our best at the end
of the year."'
S the Gators came
out of the gates

after a disap-
pointing indoor finale.
"I was very pleased with the
weekend," Holloway said. "We
were very focused and we need
to build some momentum moving
Hall will not be competing this
weekend in preparation for the
Florida Relays on April 6 and 7, but
that doesn't mean he is taking the
"Every day is a track meet in
practice," Hall said. "They have no
problem working us hard."

Donovan's future of interest to basketball recruits

UF coach Billy Donovan talks with his team during the final minute of the Gators' 85-77 win against Oregon
at the Midwest Regional on Sunday in St. Louis.
Heckling won't keep Noah down
It's no secret to anyone who has been
paying attention the past few years that
Joakim Noah has a lot to say.
Even so, something he said this week
resonated just as much, if not more, than
any words that have ever come out of his
In a nutshell, he said too much has been
expected of this team this season, that vic-
tories have become assumed rather than
"Last year people would talk to you for
the right reasons," Noah said this week.
"People were happy if we beat anybody."
SAnd in a crazy way, the same can be said
In three short weeks last spring, Noah
went from a name known only in college
basketball circles to the face of the NCAA
Tournament, Gator chomping 5 feet in front
of me on press row in Indianapolis after
capturing the school's first national title.
Faced with that'burden, Noah has been
viewed through a microscope so big it
Magic i 96
would bur through a colony of ants.
UF coach Billy Donovan has said there's
no way Noah could live up to the expecta-
tions, but that hasn't stopped anyone from
breaking down his game piece-by-piece.
What most people
fail to realize, howev-
er, is that he'll never
put up those gaudy
numbers all the time
simply because of
Dan Treat the type of team the
Dan in Motion Gators are.

players say former
UF guard Matt Walsh
got it worse, I promise you that Noah has
put up with more heckling from opposing
fans than any player ever to slip on an or-
ange and blue uniform.

Title teams keep in touch

If you're near UF late Monday
night, you may see burning couches
and trees set ablaze.
You may see a student getting ar-
rested for slapping a police horse.
Or crazed fans climbing light posts
and traffic lights.
All have taken place before, on the
nights of UF's last two national cham-
"I'd love to be a student here," said
UF football coach Urban Meyer, whose
team won the BCS Championship on
Jan. 8. "Can you imagine that? To get
another chance to run in the street and
act like a nut?"
But the celebrations aren't the only
link between UF's football and basket-
As Meyer's champs have gotten in
the swing of spring practice, the cham-.
pionship basketball team has taken
back the attention of the Gator Nation.
*CBS SportsLine is reporting that UF is
pursuing heralded Connecticut women's
basketball coach Gerfo Auriemma as
they search for a replacement for Carolyn
Peck, who was fired Feb. 12.
UF is two wins away from bringing
another championship to Titletown,
and the football team has taken notice
just like the rest of campus.
As expected, UF players are expect-
ing another trophy.
