College may be named for Jeb
* A STATE HOUSE COUNCIL AP-
PROVED THE CHANGE.
By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
Signs outside UF's Norman Hall would
read the "Jeb Bush College of Education"
if a state House of Representatives council
gets its way.
After the UF Faculty Senate denied the
former governor an honorary degree last
month, Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, pro-
posed Tuesday to rename the college in
"I was outraged, insulted that a
distinguished public servant like
Jeb Bush would be treated in
such a fashion."
Rep. David Rivera
The Schools & Learning Council agreed
and attached Rivera's proposal to a bill that
passed unanimously. It will likely next go to
the Policy & Budget Council. It would then
have to be passed by the Legislature and
approved by Gov. Charlie Crist.
In a telephone interview, Rivera called
the Faculty Senate's snub a "tremendous
slight to the governor."
Though he said he had been trying to
find a way to honor Bush for months, the
Senate vote and the "chatter" that fol-
lowed is partly why he proposed the
"I was outraged, insulted that a distin-
guished public servant like Jeb Bush would
be treated in such a fashion," he said.
Because of Bush's education record
and support for UF programs, such as the
Genetics Institute, the renaming is a natural
fit, he said.
Rivera said he hadn't spoken to Bush

SG presents check for Lt. Dahlem's family

Ad prompts change in policy

In response to a controversial
pro-Israel ad, UF's Student Senate
passed a bill Tuesday specifying
that. Student Government-funded
organizations must use the SG
logo and the organization's name
on any publication.

confusion about (who paid for the

Ryan Moseley, who authored the
bill. "And I want to do it imme-

was published March 28 in the

with more than 1,000 signatures
supporting, in part, "America's

stated that the ad was "Paid for by

Offices host germs

You might be safer eating
your lunch in your office's re-
stroom than at your desk.
A recent study by a micro-
biologist at the University of
Arizona found that the desk-
top and computer keyboard
area had on average 400 times
the amount of bacteria on an
office toilet seat..
The study compared the
number of germs found in
various office settings.
Most bacteria on desks are
near the mouse, where com-
puter users rest their hands,
the study states.
Taking your own precau-
tions when using a public
computer is always a good
idea, said Joanne Richard,
who is a nurse practitioner
and a clinical associate pro-
fessor at UF.
"Have users wash their
hands before using the com-
puters, and teach people to
sneeze into their elbows rath-

took place in the Hilton Hotel
on 34th Street.
Diaz, a tall brunette wearing
jeans that fit like Saran Wrap, sat
down and quickly picked up
one of the hot-pink clipboards
on the coffee table.
On the form,- with quick
flicks of her wrist, she filled in
things like her age: 22. Her uni-

sizes: She'd rather not say.

Kaye said she brought most
of the decorations herself, in-

The Jeb affair continues
in the House
You've got to be kidding us.
A state House of Representatives council just
passed a bill proposing to name UF's College of
Education for former Gov. Jeb Bush.
You read correctly. We are not making this up. The new
name would be the "Jeb Bush College of Education."
Last time we checked, people had to donate a couple of
million bucks to get a building or in Gale Lemerand's
case, a building and a street named after them.
Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, of the House's Schools
and Learning Council proposed the bill, which passed
unanimously in the council. It still has a few more steps
before it winds up on Gov. Charlie Crist's desk, and a simi-
lar piece of legislation would have to go through the state
Senate in order for any of this to mean anything.
But let's hypothesize for a few minutes. Because hey,
this is Florida, and anything is possible. Hanging chads
and Anna Nicole Smith, anyone?
Let's back up a bit. Didn't we just get over the Jeb
Affair? We denied him an honorary degree, then we turned
around and gave him honorary alumnus status. We made
national news and looked like fools, and we pissed-off the
Republican-controlled state Legislature to boot.
Last we heard, UF's Board of Trustees was fighting to
stop all this negative publicity. And we agree with them:
Just let it drop. The entire situation is embarrassing for the
university and the state politicians who apparently can't
make up their minds about our former governor.
So what happens if Jeb is horror of horrors denied
again? Will UF ever recover from this embarrassment?
Will the "Academic Enhancement Program" make it
through the Legislature? Will a sinkhole open up and suck
in our campus?
We just checked our Magic 8-Ball, and it told us:
"Outlook not so good."
And even if he is given this "honor," it's a slap in the
face for the Faculty Senate. It already decided he hadn't
contributed enough to UF to earn an honorary degree. So
how does Rivera suddenly decide he is worthy of an entire
And the College of Education, at that.
Jeb Bush doesn't deserve it -just look at Florida's pub-
lic school system.
Remember those boring mandatory Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test practice sessions in high
school? Before you could learn about important things like
the Federalist Papers (all 85) and practice solving deriva-
tives, you had to complete simple reading comprehension
exercises and practice using the order of operations re-
member: "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally."
What a waste of time. And we have Jeb to thank for it.
Not to mention, Florida has one of the worst public
school systems in the country. With all the schools focus-
ing on raising FCAT scores and being "A" schools so they
get some state money, it's difficult to learn about things
that matter, like biology and economics two subjects the
FCAT never addresses.
Naming the College of Education after Bush?
It couldn't get any more ironic than that.

trying to obtain. What is this marriage thing, why do
they want it so badly, and why are we holding on to it
I define marriage as a religious institution used to cel-
ebrate and strengthen a civil union. In other words, it's
nothing more than a religious tradition and in my mind
carries no more 'eight than celebrating Hanukkah or
going to church on Sundays.
Now, if we look at marriage for whatit is a reli-
gious institution it becomes obvious that marriage
and the regulation of it should have nothing to do with
What happened to separation of church and state?
Under no circumstances should marriage be promoted,
discouraged, or regulated by any entity of government.
Let the churches do as they will.
So what does this leave us
with? Civil unions. Ah, now
we're getting somewhere. Now
we can start talking secular.
Before I proceed, understand
that wanting to legalize-gay mar-
Dan Burroughs riage actually has little to do with
firstname.lastname@example.org walking down the aisle.
However, it has everything to
do with wanting to enjoy the benefits that married cou-
ples enjoy. These include the power of an attorney, tax
breaks and certain parental rights, just to name a few.
So now we understand all that's at stake, we can see,
as I said, that this is purely a secular argument. While
just thinking about marriage puts an unpleasant taste in
my mouth, I agree that society is built upon the family,
however you define that. Time has shown that two peo-
ple working.as a single unit are economically stronger,
which is why governments do so much to encourage
But if we're just dealing with civil unions, what does
that mean? The government has no place to decide
who can enter into legal relationships. The government
thrives on the family, but it has no right to decide the
So if you want to have the pomp and circumstance
of marriage, well, that's between you and your local
church. But as far as I'm concerned, any two consenting
adults should be able to enter into a mutually beneficial,
legally binding civil union and receive the rights they

SG passes resolution in memory of Dahlem
Tuition bill sails
By CHAD SMITH
Alligator Staff Writer
Though it still has a long
way to go before it becomes
state law, UF's "Academic
Enhancement Program" came
closer to fruition Tuesday after
approval by a state House of
By a vote of 11 to 3, the
Schools & Learning Council
voted to allow UF to charge in-
coming students an additional
$1,000 a year, which would
be used to hire 200 faculty
members and 100 academic
The bill will likely go before
the Policy & Budget Council
next. Then, it will probably be
heard by the House.
Rep. John Legg, R-Port
Richey, who voted against the
bill, said officials should exam-
ine whether all the state's uni-
versities need more money. He
called approving UF's program
alone a "piecemeal approach."
"We shouldn't just focus on
pouring money into just one
school," he said.
Rep. Seth McKeel, R-
Lakeland, voted for the bill.
However, he said that while it
would help UF become a top-
10 public university, it wouldn't
completely do the job.
The bill was overhauled last
month, postponing the date UF
could start charging incom-
ing students to fall 2008. Also,
high school students currently
enrolled in the state's Prepaid
College Plan would be exempt
from the charge.
"We shouldn't just fo-
cus on pouring money
into just one school."
Rep. John Legg
Diane Hirth, a spokes-
woman for the Florida Prepaid
College Board, said the change
was important because, out of
Florida's public universities,
UF consistently enrolls the
most Prepaid students.
In an e-mail, UF President
Bernie Machen wrote that de-
spite last month's changes to
the bill, he's still encouraged by
"There will be changes as
it moves along but, at least, it
is still moving forward," he

Many of Dahlem's friends

butions of Dahlem.

backfield if Meyer remains displeased.
With Moore, Williams and Manson out
of the picture, expect Brandon James and
Chevon Walker to get the bulk of the Orange
and Blue game carries Saturday.
James, a 5-foot-6 speedy kick returned,
stepped up to the No. 1 spot when Moore
went down earlier this week.
"Size and all that stuff doesn't matter as
long as you have toughness," running backs
coach Stan Drayton said, "and (James has)
shown me he has some toughness."
But James and Walker could be out of the
picture come preseason workouts.
Signee Chris Rainey could take the reigns
upon arrival this summer.
In the meantime, Meyer has approached
Moore as the No. 1 option.
"He's told me a couple
times in the hallway that
I need to come out and
play similar to my fresh-
man year," Moore said.
S"Freshman year, he saw a
lot of me. Last year, Wynn
Moore played because he really
didn't see as much intensity
as my freshman year."

a double and was later brought
in on a LaPorta double that was
scorched into the left-center gap.
Second baseman Cole Figueroa
then singled to bring home
LaPorta. But after Brian Leclerc
and Bryson Barber walks that
brought the tying run to the
plate, UF was unable to capitalize
and ended the game on a weak
pop out to the pitcher.
"They rallied, and I'm very
proud of that," McMahon said.
"We put ourselves in a position
to get the tying run to the plate
and we just ran out of outs."
The night was so bad for
the Gators, even their normally
rowdy heckling section was
drowned out until the ninth by
the small contingent of Golden
Knights fans that made the
trip to Gainesville. At the end
of the game, one of the UCF
fans who was dressed as the
"Crocodile Hunter" stomped
on an inflatable alligator much to
the chagrin of Gators fans leaving
the stadium. It was a fitting end
to a forgetful night for UF.

UF sophomore Stephen Locke fields a bunt during the Gators' 6-2 loss against Central Florida

Moore got a surprising start in Meyer's

carry for the year.
But he took a step back last season and fell

The good news for the Gators is
that Locke's arm isn't hurting.

RAISING THE BAR
Class of '03 left its mark at UF
By RACHEL ROBINS
She was the only senior not to compete in
the Southeastern Conference Championships,
but Chantelle Tousek could not contain her
Standing beside Coach Rhonda Faehn amid
the flashing light bulbs and clicking cameras,
Tousek thought about how she and Faehn
started this adventure at UF together. Tousek,
Breanne King, Savannah Evans, Samantha
Lutz and Katie Rue comprise Faehn's first
recruiting dass at UF.
Lisa Marzan would have been the sixth
senior, but she left the team after her fresh-
man season. When asked which gymnast
she was dosest with in the senior class, Faehn
struggled to find an answer.
"There's no way I can pick one," she said.
"There's no way. They are such good people.
I'm excited to see what they do once they leave
Each has her separate reasons for attending
UF, but they'll be remembered as the '03s.
Faehn traveled across borders for her first
recruit. After competing on the Canadian
National Team for five years, time crept up on
King, and she had to pick a college.
"I didn't know too much about any U.S.
colleges," she said. "My grandparents actually
have a condo down here that they come to for
the winter, so I came down on spring break
and walked around campus and just fell in
love with it."
After UF piqued King's interest,
Faehn traveled to the Canadian National
Championships to observe. King was ecstatic
when offered a spot on the team, but her first
days in'Gainesville were a bit rocky.
In North Vancouver, British Columbia,
King was under the instruction of one coach
since she was three.
"I'm really close with my old coaches, so
it was hard to leave them," she said. "But
(Faehn) made the transition so easy."
Her college career quickly spun into form.
By the end of her freshman year, she was a
second-team All-American on floor exercise.
King became close to Rue. They were once
suitemates and now share an apartment.
Following the season, King plans to return
to Canada to complete an internship allowing
her to graduate. She hopes to stay there.
Rue's path to UF was the most logical. In
the footsteps of her big sister, Annie, she fell in
love with gymnastics early.
While a teenager, Rue met Faehn, who was
a coach at Maryland at the time but volun-
teered at her dub team.
"I really liked her back then, so that was
one big part of my decision when she came to
UF," Rue said. "I knew what to expect when I
came down here."
Over the years, Rue has become one of the
most consistent performers for the Gators. She
usually competes first on every apparatus ex-
cept uneven bars.
"I never used to be that consistent back in
high school," she said. "It just comes with do-
ing so many numbers of everything and just
focusing on that."
Under Faehn's watch, Rue made the All-
America second team on balance beam in her
first year. One of Rue's most memorable times
at UF included Tousek, Marzan and King get-
ting to know the new surroundings.
"W-came back from Christmas break one
time, and there was no one on campus," Rue
said. "We just decided we were going to have
roommate battles. We had to go to our closet
and dress up in the ugliest, most uncoordinat-
ed outfits you can find. We actually ended up
walking around campus like that and taking
Rue doesn't have to say goodbye to UF
just yet. She plans on staying a fifth year to
get a degree in sports management. One day
she hopes to work for her hometown football
team the Baltimore Ravens.
She will stay close to the gymnastics team.
'" am going to be a motivator," she said. "I
am going to go in there and make sure every-
one is doing their job."
Lutz has been the heart of the team, serving
as a captain for two of the last three seasons.
Despite seeing her performing time de-
crease, she has become a stronger leader.
Instead of complaining and whining about her
lack of opportunities, she has made the choice
to focus more on the events she does compete
in bars and floor. She was named an All-
American on bars in 2006 and beam in 2004.
"I'm not really that frustrated about it," she
said. "I know how good I am, and if I can't
make lineup then how good is our team? I
want to win national championships more
than anyone else, and I am not willing to be
selfish about trying to get the things that I
want at the sacrifice of the team."
Faehn has been there for the Ohio resident
throughout her time at UF. Lutz said Faehn is
her mom away from home.
"I don't know how many times I come into
the gym, and I'm having a bad day," Lutz said.
"She has that sense just like your mom. The
best part is she coaches you as-is. She kind of
feels what you're feeling, and shell work with
During the season, she interviewed and
received a job for a marketing position in San
Right away, she mentioned that shell be
cose to San Jose State and will see how to get
involved in their gymnastics program.
But she'll still want to compete.
"Ill miss gymnastics," Lutz said. "I've
done it since I was six. I love it more than any-
thing in the world. I feel like I can still do it,
which is the hardest part for me." -
Evans, or as Faehn likes to call her "the
close-to-perfect child," is known for excelling
in the gym and the classroom.
She was the team's scholar athlete in 2006.
Attending UF was an easy decision for the
Destin native, the only senior from Florida.
"I'm from Florida, so I wanted to stay close
to my family," Evans said. "It's a very presti-
gious school in my mind."
Despite having the familiar settings nearby,
this season, Evans had to watch a special per-
son move on from UF. Evans is dating former
UF baseball catcher Brian Jeroloman. He by-
passed his senior year to sign with the Toronto
Blue Jays, who drafted him in the sixth round
in the MLB Draft.
"It's been hard," Evans said. "It's hard not
having him here and having to talk to him on
the phone. He just left and it was really weird
because I was like, 'He's not going to be at my
meets anymore.' He actually surprised me,
and he came to all of them."
His support paid off for Evans as she is a
two-time All-American on floor.
Evans will stay at UF for a fifth year and
hopes to attend graduate school. She'll still at-
tend all of the gymnastics meets next season.
That might be difficult for the last senior on
the team, Tousek.
Tousek was the last one to commit to UF,
but she would not have it any other way.
"Coming from Canada, the weather can't
get any better," she said. "It was a whole
bunch of factors that added up."
Despite living more than 1,200 miles
from home, Tousek has found a new one in
Gainesville. She credits her relationship with
King prior to arriving at UF in helping her
make the transition smoothly. They have com-
peted against each other since they were 10.
"It was really good for me before I came
in because I did know someone," Tousek said.
Her senior night ceremony showed her
new relationships. Because of work conflicts,
her parents were unable to attend. Instead, she
had to scramble to find substitutes.
"Of course, Jessie (Mudd of UF's golf team)
came to walk me down, so that was really nice
just because he's one of my best friends here,"
Tousek said. "He's the closest to family that I
Just like the rest of the senior class, Tousek
is an All-American, having been named on
vault in 2004. But she still misses Canada.
"I'm probably more homesick now than I
was when I first came in," Tousek said.
Coming to an End
At the senior athlete awards banquet
Monday, Faehn joked and laughed with her
To any outsider, it would be difficult to dis-
tinguish between the coach and the athletes.
Like a chameleon, Faehn blends in with her se-
niors. Even though it has been about 15 years
since she competed in collegiate gymnastics,
she is the sixth member of the '03s.
Faehn must bid farewell to the first class
she turned into Gators and the girls that
helped her do the same.
"I can see how parents feel when their
child goes off to college or when they move
out of the house," Faehn said. "It's going to be
tough," she pauses.
"Ifs going to be hard to.see them go. That's
a very special group."

Conference title within reach for women's tennis
Tim Casey/ Alligator Sta
Csilla Borsanyi returns a shot near the net during the No. 3 UF women's tennis team's match against
Texas on Feb. 17 at the Ring Tennis Complex.
By PHIL KEGLER
The UF women's tennis team
is running on all cylinders as it ap-
proaches the final week of the regu-
The No. 3 Gators (17-1, 8-1
Southeastern Conference) host
Mississippi (4-16, 0-9 SEC). this
morning at 10 at the Ring Tennis
Complex. UF was set to play the
Rebels on March 2, but rain forced
the match to be postponed until
March 3. Then, after just 22 minutes
of doubles action, the rain returned,
and both coaches decided to post-
pone the match until a later date.
With only two SEC matches left,
the Gators stand in second place in
the conference, a half-match behind
Georgia. UF needs to win both
today's match and Saturday's match
against South Carolina to ensure at
least a split of the SEC title.
With a conference crown at stake,
UF coach Roland Thomqvist feels
like his team's doubles play is finally
coming together at the right time.
When freshman Megan
Alexander was forced to sit out
for two weeks due to lower back
issues, Thomqvist had to mix up
his doubles pairings. He moved
t Whitney Benik and Nina Suvak
down to No. 2 and bumped junior
Diana Srebrovic to the No. 1 slot
with a new partner, freshman Csilla
Borsanyi. Srebrovic and Borsanyi
have made Thomqvist proud so far
as the pair has gone 5-0 an clinched
the doubles point three times.
The pair is unranked since they
have not played many matches
together, but they have already
defeated three pairs ranked in the

weekend, she was paired with

Gators rise in second day of U.S. Collegiate Championship
By DANNY KLEIN
The theme of the. day for the UF men's
golf team was moving up, but it may be
too little too late.
On day two of the United States
Collegiate Championship, the No. 6 Gators
improved by seven strokes, carding a 298
(10 over par).
The team moved two spots up the lea-
derboard and now sits in eighth heading
into the final round.
"The weather was better today, but the
golf course was just as difficult," UF coach
Buddy Alexander said. "We played well
in relation to the field, as is evident by
the fact that the leaderboard is really con-
gested. We had some guys play solid golf
today, and we saw what happens when we
play close to our ability."
The task will not be easy, but the Gators
still remain in the hunt.
Only 12 shots back of No. 1 Georgia and
with only five shots separating the third
place team from the eighth, there is still a
chance UF can finish strong.
"If we can stay away from double and
triple bogeys," Alexander said, "we have a
chance to turn in a solid finish. So far, we
haven't done that as well as I'd hoped.
"Golf is a funny game, though, and
tomorrow could be the day it happens for
The Gators benefited from consistent
The team was led by sophomore Billy
Horschel, who followed a first-round 75
(3 over) with a 74 (2 over), moving him 16 back after notching an 83 (11 over). He
spots up the leaderboard, from 28th to a carded a 72 (even), landing him in a tie
tie for 12th.
"If we can stay away from double
and triple bogeys, we have a
chance to turn in a solid finish."
UF men's golf coach
Freshman Tim McKenney, who ended
day one in a tie for seventh, tallied a 77 (5
over) and fell to join Horschel in the 12th
Junior Tyler Brown improved by two
strokes, firing a 75 (3 over) and climbing
from a tie for 45th into a tie for 29th.
Sophomore Toby Ragland bounced
"We made an adjustment to Toby's
swing on the practice tee this morning,
which is unusual, but it worked ou? for the
best," Alexander said. "He was determined
to make an improvement over (Monday's)
score, and he certainly did that. Toby has
shown a knack for coming through with
clutch scores when we need them, and he
was a real plus for us today."
Junior Manuel Villegas' tournament
continued to be a disappointment. He
finished the day with an 80 (8 over) and
currently sits in a tie for 74th.

UF running back Kestahn Moore takes a handoff from quarterback Tim
Tebow during the Gators' spring practice on Monday.
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
It's been Urban Meyer's pet peeve since he ar-
rived at UF.
The running back position has annoyed, disap-
pointed and frustrated the Gators' coach the last two
It's been the same story during spring practice.
"At running back, we're not exactly knocking
them dead," Meyer said.
The biggest concern for the offense during spring
practice hasn't been how quarterback Tim Tebow is
It hasn't been how it will replace wide receivers
Dallas Baker and Jemalle Cornelius.
It's who will receive carries.
That's been a problem for a while.
S "We've always been on the down-
fall with Coach Meyer," said running
back Kestahn Moore, the first stringer
Football who will miss the rest of spring prac-
tice with a sports hernia. "He really
hasn't seen anything from us. We're
trying to prove ourselves to Coach Meyer. Last year,
he had receivers running the ball."
Those receivers, Percy Harvin and Andre
Caldwell, are back to steal carries from Moore and
his backfield mates. So is Tebow, who led the team
with eight rushing touchdowns last season.
"We're going to be a 50-50 run-pass team," of-
fensive coordinator Dan Mullen said. "You're going
to see Percy Harvin, Jarred Fayson run the ball. And
our quarterback is a little bit more of a ball carrier

Locke works way back into pitching rotation
By MIKE MCCALL
If the UF baseball team wants to return
to the College World Series, it needs Stephen
Locke to pitch his best.
The sophomore is 3-3 in eight starts
this year after Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Central
Florida, in which he allowed three runs on
six hits in 2 1 innings.
The appearance was Locke's first since an
outing at Auburn on March 24.
He has missed two starts since then,
continuing his recovery from Tommy John
surgery that caused him to miss the 2006
"For not touching (a baseball) in
two weeks, I think I threw pretty
Although his performance against UCF
wasn't stellar, the break helped Locke.'
"It helped me catch back up and build up
my arm strength," he said. "That weekend at
Auburn, my velocity dropped off a little bit.
It was probably because I've been throwing
ever since I was cleared to do my throwing
program after surgery."
"I hadn't really taken a break yet."

Auburn 1-0 and 12-7. In justtheirsec-
ond year of existence, the Gators won
the Southeastern Conference Tourna-
ment and regular season titles.
Locke's start against the Golden Knights
began well, as he retired UCF's hitters in the
first two innings without incident.
In the third, however, he ran into trouble.
After getting one out, Locke allowed a dou-
ble, a walk and three singles that led to three
runs and a pitching change.
"For not touching (a baseball) in two
weeks, I think I threw pretty well," Locke
said. "I was going to go three (innings) at the
most anyway. I just threw a few too many
pitches in the third, so they came out and

starter making seven appearances in that

There are nights that will be
remembered when looking back
on the season, such as Saturday's
come-from-behind win that ended
in Cody Neer's walk-off home run
against South Carolina.
Tuesday night was not one of
UF fans just want to forget the
6-2 loss their team took to Central
Florida at McKethan Stadium.
"You got to give (UCF) an aw-
ful lot of credit," UF coach Pat
McMahon said. "They played a
great baseball game tonight."

It would be as dose to a rally
as the team could muster against
Sweat. The right-hander kept Gators
hitters off-balance all night with a
mixture of off-speed pitches. He
retired the last 10 hitters he faced
and finished the game hurling eight
scoreless innings and surrendering
just two hits.
"He had a great changeup work-
ing," senior first baseman Matt
LaPorta said. "He located his fastball
too. He was just mixing it in well."
LaPorta contributed with two of
the Gators' five hits and extended his
hitting streak to 12 games. Starting
pitcher Stephen Locke struggled
from the outset and was pulled from
the game after allowing three runs
on six hits in 2 /3 innings.
In the third inning, second base-
man Avery Barnes misplayed a
