Al Horford says Billy Donovan is staying.
"It's my gut feeling," Horford said upon the two-time
NCAA champion Gators' arrival in Gainesville. "It's my I
word. It's everything. He's staying."

UF chemistry students were evacu-

sodium hydroxide splashed his eyes,

it touches skin or is consumed, Talham

Students protest SG-funded ad
* THE AD FEATURED A PETI-
TION IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL.
By JOANNA BLAZ
A heated discussion erupted at
a crowded Student Senate meet-
ing Tuesday night when about 20
pro-Palestine and Muslim students
came forward to protest a Student
that promoted the U.S.-Israel alli-
The full-page ad, which ran in
the Alligator on March 28, listed the
names of about 1,500 students who
signed a petition in support Israel's
right to defend itself against terror-
ists and of a U.S.-Israel alliance in
the "global War on Terror."
The ad was funded by Jewish
Awareness Month, an SG-funded
organization, and cost $1,160.65,
according to SG records.
Its purpose was to "show the
support of the pro-Israeli commu-
nity at U."
Because of the large audience,
members of student groups Islam
on Campus and Nakba '48 had to sit
on the floor as they waited to voice
their concerns about the ad, which
contained the phrase, "Paid for by
"I'm very upset that
my name appears on a
petition that has nothing
to do with sending home
troops from Iraq."
"I think it's deceptive," said
Nakba '48 memberJason Fieldhouse
before the meeting. "It marginalizes
a large population at UF."
SG Supreme Court Justice
Matthew Klein read a statement
from those who ran the ad.
They were not able to attend
because of a religious holiday, he
According to the statement, the
group ran the ad simply to show
that there is support for Israel.
Fieldhouse said it was in bad
taste for senators to sign the peti-
tion, but some senators said they
were misled when they signed.
Sen. Courtney Stephenson said
he signed the petition because
he thought it promoted peace in
the Middle East and bringing the
troops home from Iraq.
"I'm very upset that my name
appears on a petition that has noth-
ing to do with sending home troops
from Iraq," Stephenson said.
Sen. Cecilia Amador said she is
also upset her name appeared in
"It does not represent my voice,"
Student Body President John
Boyles said that the ad was not
something that was done by SG
and that what ran in the newspaper
was not reviewed by any SG official
before it came out.
"It is good for our students to
come and speak about their views
and come forward to a government
... that they feel like has not taken
care of their needs," Boyles said.
Pep rally to cap
off Gators' win
If Monday's post-game madness in the streets of
Gainesville wasn't enough, UF will host a celebration Friday
at the O'Connell Center for the repeat national champion
Gators men's basketball team.
The event, which starts at 6:30 p.m., will be free and open
to the public. It will feature an appearance by the team, a
speech from head coach Billy Donovan and video high-
lights, a press release stated. The UF pep
band and cheerleaders will also perform.
At last year's championship celebra-
tion, Joakim Noah announced in three
Men's words "We're back, baby," that he,
Basketball Corey Brewer and Al Horford would re-
turn to UF this year to defend their title.
Chris Neukamm, an architecture junior, said he spent
Monday night celebrating on University Avenue just as
he did for the Gators' past two championships and plans
to attend the celebration Friday.
"It's the last time to see one of the greatest teams in col-
lege basketball history and show support for a fantastic
school," Neukamm said.

Gilchrist shelter gets complaints
By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Some residents of a small town
situated just footsteps from the north-
ern Alachua County line say they are
heartbroken about the conditions of
their county's animal control center.
One resident of Trenton, Stacey
Hoyt, said she was so shocked by
the conditions inside the center that
she plans to take the case to Gilchrist
County's animal control committee
Ron McQueen, a county adminis-
trator and a member of the county's
animal control committee, said the
center wasn't in violation of ordi-
nances but that improvements could
"They were not breaking the law,"
McQueen said. "I would describe
them as primitive, but the facilities are
He also said the center needed to
be cleaned, the lawn mowed and the
animal stalls cleared of feces.
Hoyt's description of the center
was more critical. She said the scene
that greeted her when she visited it in
early March to find her lost cat, Mayla,
looked like footage from an animal
While she didn't find her 16-year-
old calico, Hoyt said she found rusted
cages, piles of bloody towels and ani-
mals lying in their feces without water
Hoyt and another Trenton resi-
dent, Eileen Elholm, said they plan
to ask county commissioners at the
Wednesday meeting about the animal
control budget and arrangements for
better facilities. Hoyt said she plans to
bring other concerned residents and a
veterinary expert to the meeting.
They were not breaking
the law. I would describe
them as primitive, but the
facilities are adequate."
Gilchrist County administrator
"When they lost my cat, not one of
those-people said to me, Tm so sony
we lost your cat,'" Hoyt said. "They
said, That happens all the time.' I
want to change that."
McQueen said animal control's
two employees aren't required to
work more than 40 hours a week, so
cages get dirty.
Sometimes the phone is left to ring
in an empty office during normal
"We're not-there 24 hours a day,"
McQueen said. "That's the nature
-of the beast when you have a small
Gilchrist County is looking into
building a $50,000 animal control fa-
cility that could house about 40 dogs
and 20 cats, McQueen said. The new
facility may boast an air conditioning
unit and have more space for the ani-
mals. But it would still have a staff of
only two employees.
McQueen said he thinks two staff-
ers are enough, but Hoyt believes
inadequate manpower is one of the
center's biggest problems. Hoyt said
that she visits animal control regularly
now and that the facility is in much
better shape after employees learned
the conditions had upset her.
As of Thursday morning, the stalls
were relatively dean and the animals
had water to drink, but piles of feces
still speckled the floor.
Hoyt said she doesn't want con-
ditions to improve temporarily. She
said she's ready to fight for long-term
"I want some answers," Hoyt said.-
"I'm not going to go in with guns blaz-
ing, but I'm certainly prepared for it."

brisk this time
Sports shops around town are busier than usual after
the Gators' win Monday, but business owners say sales
may be slower than those after other recent champion-

6, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4,2007
When the revelry goes
W inning national championships has almost become
routine for us. You know the sequence of events: We
all cheer for our team football or basketball, take
your pick and once we've slaughtered our opponent usu-
ally Ohio State several thousand of us stream onto University
Avenue in celebration.
The Gainesville Police Department did a great job of prepar-
ing for these swarms of revelers. And we especially appreciate
how lenient the police were about many rules that are usually
strictly enforced. Open container and public decency laws come
to mind who doesn't love to celebrate with a little drunken
Hell, cops are people too. They wanted us to have a good
time and enjoy our victory. Their main duties crowd control,
fire prevention, keeping us out of trees were only done to
protect us. They could have been real jerks to the mob of ecstatic
fans, but they weren't.
So when we learned that GPD Lt. Corey Dahlem was struck
by a drunken driver early Wednesday morning, it really pissed
us off. When we learned the driver tried to flee the scene, we got
even madder. Dahlem is in critical condition with life-threaten-
ing injuries at Shands.
But we got maddest of all when we learned that the man
police charged with the crime took breath tests yielding blood
alcohol levels of 0.227 and 0.214, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol. The legal limit in Florida is 0.08. There is never
an excuse for drunken driving. Ever. We're infuriated that this
man got behind the wheel and struck a 22-year veteran of GPD,
who was only working to keep celebrators like Wright safe.
Most of the time, our celebrations have been relatively safe.
It's unfortunate that one person's bad judgment ruined the oth-
erwise praiseworthy effort of most students to responsibly cel-
ebrate. With all the practice we've had in the last year, shouldn't
we be better than this?
Can you hear me now?

met and how he's, like, so

One person actually sent

about how she "went to the
most awesome fratparty and

Think of how peaceful
bus rides would be if stu-

more loudly, than the person
next to them. We could finish
up that homework assign-
ment and actually get some

MySpace can't conquer voter apathy
ou'd think someone would've figured it out
by now. MySpace is "a place for friends." That
means meeting people halfway around the world
who share your interests. It means meeting people in
your town for a random hookup. It can even mean
making yourself feel less of a loser by having the most
friends on your list.
What it doesn't mean is connecting with your future
presidential candidates. I don't know whose bright idea
it was to make Hillary Clinton, John McCain and others
MySpace profiles, but they missed one important point:
Politics will never be cool.
The thought of making Mitt Romney look "hip" and
"up with the times" by giving him a spot on MySpace is
about as sad as it is laughable.
What's funnier is knowing the reasoning behind pol-
iticians having silly MySpace profiles in the first place.
Politicians have been trying to court the 18-to-25 age
group forever not because we have political views
they wish to connect with, but because they're racking
their brains figuring out how to get us to the polls.
It's ridiculous that our politicians need to venture
onto what has become the lamest and sleaziest friend-
finding site on the Internet. -Yet, it reflects worse ipon
Stuff like this proves that we're the most politically
jaded generation this country has ever seen. Any politi-
cian's attempt to appeal to us on such a low level should
be taken not as an invite but an insult.
Instead, we choose not to care. We choose not to
care about the people who get voted into office, and
we choose not to care about the laws those people pass
once they get there. For many of us, our understanding
of how this country runs and who
runs it is more shallow than the
single wrinkle in Paris Hilton's
brain. And that's pretty damn
For God's sake, this genera-
Dan Burroughs tion thinks "The Daily Show" and
email@example.com "The Colbert Report" are actual
I wonder what it would take to finally get our at-
tention? Maybe Barack Obama should dress up as a
banana and sing "Peanut Butter Jelly Time." Or maybe
we should just have Britney Spears run for office and
call it a day. After all, we give that fool more of our at-
tention than we do the people who can actually help or
Maybe I'm just cynical, but the only way to make
people our age pay attention to politics is to put either
their lives or wallets in danger. Perhaps our country
should start a war, institute another draft and make
us fight. Better yet, some Florida politician should do
away with Bright Futures.
And it's not that we don't see what's going on. We
criticize or applaud the actions of our government all
the time. But no amount of praise or complaining will
make anyone take us seriously. You have to vote.
Campaigning on MySpace and similar outlets won't
change anything. But you really can't blame politicians
for trying. For your own good, don't make it so difficult
for your leaders to get your attention. Eventually they'll
stop trying, and then we will be screwed.

Letters to the Editor
Donovan can't choose Kentucky over UF
It is fair to say Billy Donovan is the sav-
ior of the UF basketball program. He brings
style, class and history to it. The only thing
Gators like more than making history is win-
ning championships, and last night Donovan
delivered both. I know the glory belongs to
the players, but it was Billy who has brought
us those players and fostered their love for
the game and for each other. In light of the
University of Kentucky's offer to Billy, I call
on the University Athletic Association to
show Donovan what he is worth to the Gator
Nation. We have made generous offers before,
and it is time to again. Dig deep, Jeremy Foley,
and let us keep Billy.
Punch lines not funny to everyone
Many people on this campus will fault
the Alligator for one thing or another. For the
most part, I was never one of those people
- that is, until I read Tuesday's editorial. In
it, the Alligator saw fit to make light of a little
girl's "terminal bone disease." First of all, just
because someone is sitting in a hospital wait-
ing room does not mean he or she is sick. And
if they are, does it make you feel good to use
such a disease for your snarky little comments
about UF President Bernie Machen?
If this appeared anywhere else in your
newspaper I would ask, "Don't you have edi-
tors to check these things?" However, seeing
as it was in an editorial, it's obvious you value
cheap punch lines above sensitivity. Congrats,
Alligator. Keep taking cheap shots and won-
dering why students give your paper so little
Israel issue not as clear-cut as it seems
I believe the reactions to last Wednesday's
pro-Israel ad were dangerous and uncalled for.
Shimaa Ghonim's statements made the mis-
take of assuming that there is only one right
side to this issue. These statements implied
that anyone who supports Israel is against
Palestine, and this is certainly not the case.
In addition, Ms. Ghonim implied that any-
one who is pro-Israel is an Islamophobe and a-
racist, when nothing is further from the truth.
By attempting to polarize this issue as Israel
vs. Palestine, Ms. Ghonim's comments serve
only to divide and anger people on both sides
of the issue. Most importantly, the ad in no
way implied that all Palestinians, Arabs and
Muslims are terrorists. A terrorist is anyone of
any nationality who attempts to kill innocent
people to support a political cause. I hope that
everyone unilaterally condemns such people.
UF must seek out minorities for diversity
I have followed the various stories and
opinions regarding diversity at UF. I am a
white UF alumnus, and I start this letter with
my color because race does matter. Race is
not a card that people play. Race is a construct
that affects who gets most of the pie, whom
we feel most comfortable around and who
In Edward Miller's March 28 letter to the
editor, he made the common argument and
false assumption that whites and even some
people of color make: that we should only
hire "the most talented, most qualified indi-
viduals as demonstrated by their past accom-
plishfients and not by their skin color." This
falsely assumes that aggressively seeking and
hiring minority faculty and trying to increase
the diversity of the university is not hiring the
In fact, the opposite is true: By not ag-
gressively seeking and hiring minority
candidates, UF is missing out on the most
Hiring minority faculty at UF is not about
giving opportunities to those who would not
otherwise deserve them, as many contribu-
tors to this discussion would have us believe.
Rather, it is about getting talented, qualified
faculty from a population largely ignored by
the white leadership.
It is time this university stepped up its ac-
tion, got out of the box and hired more minor-
ity faculty. If we sit around with other white
folks and ask, "Well, do you know anyone?"
we won't get very far. Let's be aggressive and
creative and get the best faculty here and
yes, that means minority faculty.
We cannot move from racism to equality
by ignoring race. We reach equality through
hard work, looking at how race affects both
whites and people of color, identifying our
prejudices, stepping out of our comfort zones
and becoming more comfortable with minor-
ities in leadership positions. Maybe Patrick
Barrett needs no further personal growth in
the area of racism. However, judging from
the negative experiences of many minority
students at UF and the lack of diversity in
the faculty, UF's leadership and the rest of us
have some more growing to do.

* THE CLEANUP OF NORTH
CAMPUS TOOK FOUR HOURS.
By NICOLE SAFKER

After the last beer can was
drained, the final refrain of "It's
great to be a Florida Gator" was
sung and the last car horn sound-
ed early Tuesday morning, the
Fans swarmed the streets after
the final buzzer rang, leaving red
party cups and rolls of unfurled
toilet paper in their wake. But this
time Gainesville had experience on
Marty Werts, a landscaping and
grounds support coordinator with
UF's Physical Plant Division, said
his division began preparations
Around noon, remov-
GaineSVille ing trash cans
from campus parking lots lining
University Avenue. This was done
to prevent people from setting
trash fires or causing other mis-
chief with them, Werts said.
A crew of about 70 physical
plant groundskeepers spent about
four hours Tuesday morning pick-
ing up trash from the north end of
campus, Werts said.
Dale Morris, a solid waste coor-
dinator with physical plant, agreed
with Werts that the cleanup was
nothing out of the ordinary.
Morris said other than a trash
fire near a housing area, no on-
campus damage was observed.
"Gator fans are really profes-
sional," Morris said. "They're used
to winning, and they don't cause

The site of one of the city's most
passionate celebrations had trans-
formed into a somber crime scene in
a matter of hours.
GPD Chief Norman Botsford,
who arrived at the scene not long
after the crime took place, spoke to
other officers with a sullen expres-
sion. Most of the officers on scene,
who, a few hours before, were giv-
ing students high fives and sips of
their sodas, stoically stood guard
around the perimeter of police tape,
which surrounded the entire inter-
section in a jagged polygon.
Inside the yellow tape, amid
shards of broken glass, discarded
orange-and-blue pom-poms and
streamers of flung toilet paper,
investigators placed yellow mark-
ers with black, downward-facing
arrows over what appeared to be
Several students also lingered
near the crime scene, most of them
as shaken as the officers. UF student
Matt Smukall said it was awful how
such an amazing night could end so
"A cop got hit. That sucks. That
f- sucks," he said. "These cops
were out here with us just trying to
have a good time."
Wright, the man who officers
say hit Dahlem, Wright, has been
charged with DUI resulting in seri-
ous bodily injury, careless driving,
leaving the scene of an accident and
ignoring a traffic control device.
According to a Florida Highway
Patrol accident report, Wright was
"talkative, carefree and cocky"
during his field sobriety test and
used his middle finger instead of his
index finger to touch his nose dur-
ing the coordination part of the test.
His blood-alcohol level was later
determined to be nearly three times
the legal limit.

By Monday, Williams had been
on a 96-hour partying spree, and his
anticipation for the final game had
built to an explosive degree:
"I'm an amazing fan I think,"
he said. "I start chants, and I kept
screaming at the Ohio State fans as

three friends called the Gators

They made hotel reservations at
the Hyatt hotel and planned to drive
to Atlanta on Saturday morning.
By midnight Friday, after about
three months of anticipation,
Blaubach and his friends hit the road
in his Nissan Xterra.
They drove through the night,
talking and munching on peanuts,
chips and green bell peppers.
After a six-hour nap in Atlanta,
they spent the weekend exploring
a city teeming with basketball fans.
Blaubach said the Gators fans out-
numbered the Buckeyes.
The weekend was a costly one.
Blaubach said he spent about $155
on gas and parking. To cut the cost,
Blaubach and seven friends shared a
$260 suite. Each paid about $100 for
a weekend in the hotel:
The eight fans left Atlanta after
the game to make it back in time for
Tuesday classes. After driving from 1
a.m. to 6 a.m., the group crashed on
the beds and couches at Blaubach's
house for a few hours of rest.
But when alarms went off for
early classes, no one woke up.
In addition to missing his first

Afterward, she worked on a fi-

But despite the sleep depriva-

Her parents, grandparents and

Her eyes teared when she

"That team just will never be

"They're all best friends, and
that's awesome. That's definitely
something that's unique to Florida
basketball," she said.

Catcher adjusts to starting
* HILBERTH REPLACED ENEA
BEHIND THE PLATE:
By KARL HYPPOLITE
SKristina Hilberth was only expecting a
part-time job this season.
But the sophomore catcher has been
thrust into a starting role after freshman
Francesca Enea went down with a knee
injury against Eastern Michigan more than
a month ago.
Hilberth will make her 24th consecu-
tive start of the season today in UF's dou-
bleheader against Florida State, beginning
at 4 p.m.
"Coming into the season we knew that
if we were going to be a successful staff
both of us need to be ready to go," she
said. "With (Enea) out, the role falls on
me. Playing this position, you've got to
have two people ready to play, because
you can be out of the game with an injury
Ironically, Enea's injury came when
she was moved to first base and collided
with pitcher Stacey Stevens as they chased
Enea, who in 20 games this season has
hit three home runs and driven in 11 runs,
was the Gators' best power hitter. UF's
12-11 record since her injury is a sign of
how much it has missed her, but Hilberth
believes she has much to offer as well.
"We're different types of hitters,"
Hilberth said. "(Enea) is more of a power
hitter and I'm better at slapping the ball
and getting line drives. But I think having
an extra year of experience may help."
Though she's batting
just .200 on the season,
that experience mani-
fests itself in Hilberth's
Softball ability to make timely
The final game of
UF's sweep of Georgia nearly two weeks
ago provides an example.
With a 3-1 lead in the third inning
Hilberth reached first on an error. She stole
second soon after, with leadoff hitter Kim
Waleszonia coming to the plate.
Waleszonia's double into left field
scored two runs, giving the Gators a 5-1
She'll look to continue the Gators' mo-
mentum against the Seminoles.

Gators hope to
avenge FSU loss
SOFTBALL, from page 17
season, including a controversial 6-5 loss in
extra innings, Hilberth is hoping to exact a
measure of revenge.
"There were a few calls that went against
us in the last minute," she said. "We're
ready to go and get two
games, and hopefully get
some pay back."
To do that UF has to
find consistency at the
plate. During its recent
streak the Gators aver-
Hilberth aged 6.9 runs per game.
But in last weekend's
. s.. ies-against Mississippi, UF averaged just
2.5 runs per game.
"We're not where we need to be,"
Hilberth said. "We can get very hot, but we
can be cold."

Gators slam No. 2
Seminoles in Jax
By MIKE MCCALL
JACKSONVILLE It took
the UF baseball team just three
swings to accomplish what
only two other teams have
done all year.
In front of a crowd of 12,280
at the Baseball
Baseball scored 10 runs
in the first two
innings to hand No. 2 FSU
(29-3) a 16-7 loss, only its third
defeat of the year.
The win will provide some
momentum before this week-
end's series with No. 1 South
"It's a huge win for this
ballclub," senior Matt LaPorta
said. "We're just getting better
and better, and this is a good
jump start for this weekend
against South Carolina."
The Seminoles jumped
out to a quick lead thanks to
sophomore Buster Posey's
two-run homer in the first,
but the Gators answered with
longballs of their own.
In the first, LaPorta came
up with junior Jon Townsend
and sophomore Avery Barnes
on base and sent a pitch over
the left-field wall to give UF a
"I was thinking to take a
couple of pitches until I get a
strike, but he threw the pitch
and I swung it just hap-
pened to go out," LaPorta
The first baseman came
up in the second with
Townsend and Barnes aboard
again and lined another
three-run shot into the right-
"The second home run
he made a great pitch, I just
made a better swing I guess,"
Later in the inning, senior
Austin Pride blasted the first
pitch he saw into the parking

Seniors enjoy record crowd
* MORE THAN 12,000 SHOWED UP TO
WATCH THE RIVALS FACE OFF.
By ALEX WEINTRAUB
JACKSONVILLE For seniors on UF's baseball
team, there won't be many nights like Tuesday.
A sellout crowd of more than 12,000 split between
Tomahawk Chops and Gator Chomps, cheering
wildly as two in-state rivalsslugged it out, pumping
23 total runs on the board.
Each hit, strikeout and great defensive play drew
a thunderous applause inside the stadium.
"It was a tremendous environment," UF coach
Pat McMahon said. "It's great for fans of both
schools. It's just a great park."
And it meant even more to the seniors, who
have seen few ballparks like the Baseball Grounds
of Jacksonville built for the Los Angeles Dodgers
Double-A affiliate Jacksonville Suns in their soon-
"I loved .it," said senior first baseman Matt
LaPorta. "I wish we could play FSU here all three
games. This was amazing with all the Florida State
and Florida fans."
It was the largest crowd ever to witness a colle-
giate baseball game in the state of Florida, shatter-
ing the old record set in 1986 when Texas played at
The crowd was also the second largest in the
And in front of a sea of orange, blue, garnet and
gold, it was the seniors' chance to shine.
LaPorta belted two home runs and cosed out the
night with six RBI and three runs.
"It felt like a postseason atmosphere," he said.
"The only time I played in a stadium like this was
when I went to Omaha (to play in the College World
After LaPorta smacked two three-run homers in
his first two at-bats, the Seminoles
steered dear of the slugger in
his next at-bat and intentionally
walked him in the fourth inning.
He would end up scoring and
continuing on his recent tear,
which includes 10 home runs in
LaPorta The homers would be the first
baseman's only hits on the night,
but it was all the Gators would need from him.
Senior designated hitter Austin Pride also got in
on his chance.
In the second inning he came to the plate with the
bases loaded and UF up 6-2 and drove a bomb deep
into the left-field picnic area into a throng of fans.
It proved too much even for the Seminoles' po-
tent offense to come back from.
Pride finished the night 2 for 4 with four RBI and
"It was awesome," Pride said. "I've never played
in front of a crowd this big before.
"It felt like I was in the big leagues."

UF win streak at 8 games

lot for a grand slam, giving the
Gators a 10-2 lead they wouldn't
"It was huge," UF coach Pat
McMahon said. "(FSU) scored
two and then we came back and
put three on the board. That was
very important because we came
back in the second and expanded
"We know they are an out-
standing offensive club with the
potential to score a lot of runs, so
our goal was to stretch the lead."
LaPorta finished 2 for 4 with
six RBI and three runs, and his
two homers give him 10 in the
last seven games.
The Gators finished with 13
hits. UF's 16 runs were more than
double the previous high of eight
allowed by FSU.
The potent Seminoles lineup,
which came into the game bat-
ting .387, had a decent outing
at the plate but was unable to
produce the big inning needed to
overcome the early deficit.
A pair of freshmen teamed
up to pitch the first four innings,
with Kevin Chapman earning the
win in two frames of relief work.
"Tuesday after a conference
weekend you're asking pitchers
who haven't been in that envi-
ronment to grow up and get bet-
ter," McMahon said. "That's how
you become a better club."
The Seminoles committed
two errors in the game, ending
their streak of 63 2/3 innings of
error-free baseball. The Gators'
win avenged a 14-6 loss to the
Seminoles in Gainesville on Feb.
20. In that game, FSU tallied a
whopping 20 hits.
"We had a mission out here
- whether we beat them by one
or 10, it doesn't matter," LaPorta
said. "As long as we win and
come out playing hard, it's all

Donovan keeps focus on present as UK rumors persist
< By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
ATLANTA When UF coach
Billy Donovan was presented
with the Siemens Trophy on
Tuesday, he couldn't help but
think back to October.
His memory did not focus
on the Gators' first practice or
the first time
he was asked
ing as national
Basketball Instead, as
he gingerly ap-
crystal trophy, he uttered the
words "Midnight Madness"
- referring to the prank where
Donovan dropped a mock cham-
pionship orb in front of 7,985
people at the O'Connell Center.
He was careful not to fumble
the delicate trophy this time, but
the crystal ball provided no indi-
cation about the coach's future
Donovan remained mum
