UF reps convene in Capitol for Gator Day
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
TALLAHASSEE In Bernie Machen's eyes, the Gator Nation
has a lot of growing to do.
The UF president and a trail of other administrators took
that vision to the state capital Wednesday, hoping to convince
state lawmakers that UF needs a heavier cash flow to thrive.
Along with a few Student Government officials, the UF
representatives met with lawmakers. At the end of the day,
about 100 bigwig Gators fans gathered on
the 22nd floor of the Capitol building for a
reception marking the end of Gator Day, the
official day for UF leaders to discuss issues
concerning the university.
They listened to a four-man smooth jazz
band, helped themselves to an open bar and
munched on seafood, pork tenderloin and
Machen alligator-shaped frosted sugar cookies.
This year, most of the talk centered on
the "Academic Enhancement Program," which would raise
tuition for incoming students by $1,000 per year. Two bills that
would pave the way for the program are working their way
through the Legislature.
S With three recent national championships under its belt,
UF was in a prime position Wednesday to inspire glee and
maybe a few funding promises.
UF Board of Trustees Chairman Manny Femandez said the
event was better than those of the past.
"Do people know more about us?" he asked. "Are they ex-
cited? Yes. But how can you not be excited, being a Gator?"

Farrow sheds light
on Darfur violence
Actress Mia Farrow speaks Wednesday night at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts about her trip
to Darfur, Sudan, and the strife she witnessed. Farrow's speech urged the audience to take action.
By BRITTANY DAVIS
Mia Farrow's sweet smile and
dainty figure make it hard to imag-
ine the 62-year-old actress pitching
a tent or hauling her own water in
A closer look at Farrow's life,
however, helps in understanding
her grain of toughness.
She's survived polio, gone
through rocky romances with
Frank Sinatra and Woody Allen,
and mothered 14 children, 10 of
whom have been adopted from
around the world.
On Wednesday night, the ac-
tress famous for roles in movies
such as "The Great Gatsby" and
"Rosemary's Baby" took the
stage at the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts to speak about the
lives of the people in Sudan, Chad
and the Central African Republic.
In Darfur, a militia known as
Janjaweed is sponsoring what some
label a full-scale genocide against
tribal rebels. More than 400,000
have been killed, and more than 2
million have fled their homes, the
U.N. Web site states.
The atrocities Farrow saw in
Africa were almost too gross to
comprehend, she told the audience
of about 1,000.
Farrow's voice shook as she told
of a mother who clung desperately
to her baby as he was ripped from
her arms. This mother, Farrow said,
had seen three of her five children
die after being stabbed with a bayo-
net. Another picture showed the
wrinkled face of a woman who had
been raped by about 30 men and
burned with cigarettes.

Facebook revamps site with new layout, features

UF students rolled out of bed Wednesday
morning to find a surprise waiting for them
on their computer screens: Facebook looked
Menus were reorganized. Features, like

And when UF students noticed the chang-

reflect their approval or puzzlement.

On Wednesday, Library West was abuzz
with students exploring the new site.
UF freshman Ashley Scott said she didn't
like the changes.
Scott said the new site is "a little bit intru-
sive" because the new organization scheme
makes it even easier to see what people are
doing on the site.
"I think it's a little Big Brother," she said..
She said she will still use Facebook just
as much because many of the organizations
she's involved in use it as a method of com-
"You can't get away from it," Scott said.
The changes had been in the works since
January, when the Facebook team made a
New Year's resolution "to make Facebook
simpler, more flexible, and to make our net-
work structure more relevant," according to a
blog post on the Web site.

Peace Corps application deadline approaches
* THE DEADLINE IS MID-APRIL.
By SHOSHANNA SCHERER
Alligator Contributing Writer
A graduating UF student said the biggest
reason she decided to apply for the Peace
Corps is because she doesn't want to be stuck
in a lame job after college.
"There's so much to see in the world that so
few people take advantage of," said Stephanie
Garry, a journalism senior.
People are born into circumstances, she
said, and the fortunate have an obligation to
help the less fortunate:
For students interested in the Peace Corps,
the applications deadline for 2008 is mid-
April. Qualified applicants are nominated to
volunteer in certain areas of the world based
on their skills.
Garry was nominated to go to Latin
America and work with primary-school
children in health education. Volunteers are
nominated by Peace Corps recruiters, but their
ultimate destinations are determined later.
Once Garry passes the medical and legal
clearance, she will leave in January for a 27-
month commitment: three months of training
and two years in the field.
Amy Panikowski, the UF Peace Corps
recruiter, said the Peace Corps targets large
universities for recruits.
"I do a lot of class talks,"
Student she said.
Activism Panikowski visits environ-
mental classes, HIV/AIDS
classes and agricultural classes, and usually
speaks to juniors and seniors, she said.
Panikowski is required to nominate 25
people each year, she said, but she has already
nominated 27 this year.
"I'm done. I'm just done," she said, laugh-
Overall, the Peace Corps receives about
10,000 applications per year for 4,000 spots,
she said. Since 1961, more than 1,000 UF stu-
dents and alumni have served in the Peace
Corps, she said.
Cali Crisler, a classics senior, is still filling
out her Peace Corps application. She said she
wants to work in community developmentbe-
cause community is being lost in America.
"How well do you know your neighbors?"
Crisler asked. "Can you call them by name?

* THE 41-CENT STAMP
WILL COME OUT IN MAY.
By ALISHA BHIMANI
Alligator Contributing Writer
For everyone tired of hav-
ing to buy 2-cent stamps every
time the price of stamps goes
up, the U.S. Postal Service is
offering a lifetime solution.
Today the Postal Service is
releasing the "Forever" stamp.
It will be good for mailing 1-

the price of stamps.
The Forever stamp costs
41 cents, and customers may
begin using the stamp when
regular stamp prices increase
to the same cost on May 14.
Jason Knott, the customer
relations coordinator for
Gainesville post offices, said
the stamp can be used indefi-

said. "We're testing the waters

right now, but when they do,

The stamp features the

prominence and its association
with American independence.
It is pictured on the Postal
Service Web site.
The Forever stamp will re-
main on sale for 41 cents until
the cost of regular stamps goes
above that price. It will then be
available at a new price.
The Forever stamp is avail-
able in booklets of 20 and can
be purchased at all Gainesville
post offices or online.

Hand-holders fight homophobia
Event part of Pride Month
By ASHLEY FURROW
Alligator Contributing Writer
While talking in a cluster,
students held hands on the Plaza
of the Americas. At first it looked
like a typical afternoon scene, but
onlookers stared as they realized
the people were of the same sex.
Wednesday marked UF's
seventh annual Same-Sex Hand-
Holding Day, an event hosted by
the Pride Student Union in an ef-
fort to fight homophobia.
As part of Pride Awareness
Month, the event encouraged stu-
dents to hold hands with people
of the same sex.
"We are trying to put things
out there and open people's eyes
to same-sex relationships," said
Courtney Brown, the event's co-
About 50 hand-holders
walked around the Plaza from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m., distributing fliers
and buttons to students.
Originally created by the
Gator Gay-Straight Alliance in
2000, PSU decided to hold the
event this year, she said. The club
did not want the annual event
to die after the Gay-Straight
Alliance disbanded in the fall.
Brown said homophobia can
be a problem among UF stu-
The idea of the event is to get
students to participate in some-
thing they may have never done
before, she said.
"It challenges people's views
of their own sexuality," Brown
said. "Just because you hold
hands with a person of the same
sex does not make you gay."
Brown said PSU advertised
the event all month and sent fli-
-ers out to all the major student
organizations to try to make the
event a competition.
PSU counted the number of
members from each organization,
and the one with the most hand-
holders will receive an award
during the Pride Awareness
Month closing ceremony on
April 24, Brown said. A sorority
has won the past three years.

She said seeing people of the
same sex holding hands is en-
couraging to the gay community.
"It puts a smile on my face,"
It is also a form of silent
awareness to get people talking,
"This day helps out because
it makes people more comfort-
able," Rivera said. "They can
hold hands with people and not
automatically be labeled."

Legislators push against
stem cell research
Thanks again, Florida Legislature.
It's being more stringent than Gov. Charlie Crist and
harsher than President Bush. We didn't think that was
State House and Senate committees approved proposals
Tuesday that would forbid any taxpayer-funded research on
human embryos. That would put all research on embryonic
stem cells out of the question.
Stem cells can develop into any kind of cell in the body, and
because of this, they may hold the key that would unlock the
cures for diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and diabetes.
The state Legislature's choices are ironic, considering that
the very next day, the U.S. Senate voted to ease the current
restrictions set in place by Bush. And Crist has said he would
allow funding for experiments on the 60 lines of embryonic
stem cells that Bush allowed in 2001.
State lawmakers say they passed the new legislation be-
cause research hasn't yielded results fast enough and because
it's not a good investment of state money.
Oh, OK. We understand. This is the Age of Now. We can't
afford to waste time and money on anything that won't pro-
duce immediate results.
Except for the fact that any kind of medical research takes
time and lots of it. But how many people did small pox
decimate before a vaccine was invented? How long have we
been working to cure cancer?
This was a very short-sighted move on the Legislature's
The consolation prize we use the term loosely Crist
has asked for would set aside $20 million for research on adult
stem cells. But research has shown that the uses of adult stem
cells are much more limited than those of embryonic ones. The
Legislature hasn't even promised that paltry amount, and the
House bill seeks to keep that money out of the budget.
We expected more from a state that has more elderly resi-
dents than palm trees. We can only hope that Crist will keep
his promise to fund the research. UF faculty conduct stem cell
research, and we'd hate to see them out of a job.

the past 25 years, our space program has been running
in place. We've been sending space shuttles on expen-
sive missions of questionable purpose for too long.
On Tuesday, the first shuttle launch of 2007 was delayed
yet again, this time due to hail damage. The astronauts were
slated to fold up the International Space Station's solar pan-
els and eat freeze-dried Neapolitan ice cream.
In January 2004, President Bush announced NASA's
Vision for Space Exploration. The "vision" called for com-
pleting the International Space Station and retiring the space
shuttleby 2010, developing the Orion spacecraft with its Ares
launching systemby 2008, and exploring the moon and Mars
with manned missions by 2020.
This all sounds great John F. Kennedy great. The Orion
spacecraft and Ares launching system are light-years ahead
of the space shuttle in terms of efficiency. NASA is looking
again to the solar system, and more particularly into setting
up a solar-powered research outpost on the moon by 2025.
Imagine setting up man-operated telescopes on the
moon's pockmarked surface. It has no atmosphere to cloud
our view of space. If you've seen what the Hubble Space
Telescope is capable of, you have an idea of the scope and
brilliance of the possibilities.
Yet tragically and predictably, space science has been
underfunded and undervalued. It's sacrificed airplay to clas-
sic, war-on-terror hits such as "That One War" and "Gimme
Some Oil." Ah, the oldies those tunes our parents and
grandparents listened to.
NASA's 2007 budget of $17.3 billion caused NASA
Administrator Michael Griffin to cut $3 billion from space
science in order to finance the final years of the space shuttle
mission and construction of the space station. Yes, it must
be completed, but why can't we fund new projects as well?
t k China is pouring money into space
science and technology. How do we
propose to keep up?

Todd Portnowitz our bestbet.
email@example.com "In this country we've sold the
shop. We don't build anything
anymore," he said. "We don't really design anything. We
just sell things back and forth to each other. As a result, pure
research is one of the few things we have left to cling to as a
If we don't start research and development now, by the
time 2010 comes around, well have nothing to show for it.
Keremedjiev also suggested implementing a secretary of
science as an adviser to the president much like the secre-
taries of agriculture or education. It astonishes me that such
a position doesn't already exist. The less we know about the
Earth and space, the less a part of this universe we are.
We're one planet, orbiting one star in a galaxy of billions.
By searching for Earth-like planets in the universe, we can
perhaps uncover the mystery of life. I still feel fanciful even
mentioning extraterrestrial life, but that feeling is the rem-
nant of an outdated generalization. The possibility is now
ridiculously in favor of life existing on other planets.
- I hear too often, "Why go to space? It's a waste of time
But why would it be there, if not to discover? Sure, the
truth about what's out there might be scary. But to claim
exploration as futile and unrewarding? Now that's frighten-

Letters to the Editor
College shouldn't be named after Bush
I am writing in response to Wednesday's
article "College may be named for Jeb."
Before an entire college is named after some-
one, shouldn't that person have contributed
something in order to merit such an honor?
Considering all the publicity the recent stories
surrounding UF's relationship with former
Gov. Jeb Bush have caused, it is ludicrous that
anyone would think it is a gogd idea to name
the College of Education after him.
As a soon-to-be graduate of the College
of Education's master's program in elemen-
tary education and as someone who has dose
relationships with many current teachers
in Alachua County, all I have heard is how
Performance pay, high-stakes testing and
basal-reading programs all of these resulted
from Bush's years as governor. It seems ridicu-
lous to name the college after a man who has
done so much to restrict teachers and who has,
in many instances, jaded the education system
that graduates will soon enter.
If UF wants to dean up the mess with Bush,
it should name a dead-end street after him or
have "Bush Breakfast" on Sundays in the din-
ing halls. The last thing it should do is name
the College of Education after him.
Ross Van Boven
* N E
restrictive, pressure-laden and uncompro- Love, marriage go hand in hand
missing the policies set forth under Bush are. I am writing in response to Wednesday's
column "Marriage should be legal to gays,
too." Daniel Burroughs's insistence that mar-
riage has nothing to do with love has the
potential to upset both, gays and straights.
Burroughs seems to have ignored those who
want same-sex marriages so that their love is
recognized as proper and true. And do non-
religious straight couples get married only for
the legal benefits? The issue of love is intimate-
ly bound to that of marriage. Burroughs' state-
ments indicate his failure to adequately grasp
the subject on whichhe poorly expounds.
Healthy lifestyle beats germ phobia
.In Daniel Comnell's Wednesday article
"Offices host germs," he wrote about yet an-
other study of how many germs exist in com-
mon places. Last time it was bathrooms. This
time it is offices. Next time it will be bedrooms.
Is this really still news to anyone?
Everyday life is full of germs and bacteria
- big deal. There's a reason why everyone
isn't always sick: We have something called
immune systems, which allow our bodies to
fight infections and diseases.
Rather than walk around with hand sani-
tizer'and a can of Lysol, you should exercise
regularly, eat healthfully, stay positive and get
a proper amount of sleep. You'll save money,
live longer and you won't have to read
about germs on your keyboard.

he said he doesn't know if the
positive responses from officials will
result in votes in favor of legislation
about UF, such as the "Academic
In the bill making its way
through the House, the tuition

state's Prepaid College Program,

students with need-based financial
aid also wouldn't have to pay.
But Fernandez said he was con-
fident legislators would enact the
"The good thing is, its not like
we're having a baby where we have
to wait nine months," he said. "Well

Machen agreed, saying he
thought the Legislature was very
receptive to the program, despite
a recent overhaul to the House bill
that pushed the program's imple-
mentation back to fall
State 2008. But Machen said
News he doesn't mind the
change because the
program itself is more important
than its start-up date.
"They're not like, 'Hell no.'
They're more like, 'Can you change
this or move this around?'" Machen
said in regards to legislators' re-
He added that he thought both
the House and Senate bills had good
chances to at least make it to the
floors. He said he also felt positive
that legislators support a bill seek-
ing to cap the prices on textbooks
and another that would allow UF
to enroll at least 430 freshmen as
Florida Opportunity Scholars.
UF needs about $13 million in or-
der to enroll the scholars, said Paul
Robell, the vice president for de-
velopment and alumni affairs. Last
year, Robell said, the UF Foundation
raised about $1.3 million toward the
cost of the program and $500,000
Machen said filling the Capitol
building with UF supporters helped
the university get recognition.
"Because we're in Gainesville
and Florida State University is here,
people forget about us," Machen
said. "So, we have to show them
who we are."

Farrow, who traveled as an ambassador for
the U.N. Children's Fund, said she returned
from her visits with only one thought in mind:
"That responsibility has eclipsed every-
thing in my life, except for my children," she
said. "I feel I must get the message across."
Farrow has since written dozens of editori-
als, spoken at universities three times a week
and conducted interviews with thousands of
news organizations, she said.
"We need to be louder," she urged.
Farrow said students should organize
protests, pressure politicians to provide aid,
and take money away from organizations that
support the Sudanese government.
Removing financial support for Sudan
would help pressure the government to stop
its mass murders, Farrow said.
Six states have passed legislation to block
financial support for the Sudanese govern-

Krystle Mondesir, or "Krystle with a
'E!,'" a hairdresser from Tampa, stepped
up to the mike and introduced herself
with a sweet smile and a smooth voice.
Her speech suddenly took on a
forceful, organic rhythm. She spoke of
a relationship words flowing un-
checked from her heart to her mouth.
The rhythm turned melodious as she
sang, "Heeee talks to me," before div-
ing right back in, to tackle the tumult of
The audience loved her.
Mondesir was the first of a handful
of artists who performed spoken-word
poetry at ThirdEyeSpoken's "Poetry
Under the Stars" on Saturday night.
ThirdEyeSpoken is a local group of po-
ets that holds performance poetry and
art events in the Gainesville area, usu-
ally drawing about 150 to 200 people.
The organization was started in
2005 by Lacey Nagy and Kylie Slavik
when the duo converged in Gainesville
for an open-mike poetry forum. They
organized their first show to sup-
port Hurricane Katrina relief and
AmeriCares International Disaster
Relief. Once that proved a success, lo-
cal nonprofits began approaching them
"We're having a good time for a
good cause," Slavik said.
All proceeds go to local nonprofit
organizations. The most recent event
supported Bridges Across Borders, an
international peacekeeping group.
Anyone is welcome to perform at
open-mike nights, but a featured poet
from troupe of regulars is usually se-
lected to perform about five pieces per
Some poets are local, and others
travel from Jacksonville or Tampa.
ThirdEyeSpoken does not have a steady
venue but instead moves from among
art galleries to clubs to coffee shops.
Although it has resurged in popular-
ity, spoken word poetry has a long his-
tory. It originated in the oral traditions
of preliterate cultures, who used story-
telling to pass on their histories.
Twenty-first century spoken word,
or "spitting," lies somewhere between
rap lyrics, theater monologue and
Baptist sermon. It packs, the intensity
of a 100-person production into a one-
However, spoken word is more than
reciting lines. It is spontaneous and
driven by feeling, rather than by the
need to put on a show.
"It doesn't have to rhyme or make
sense as long as you make yourself
vulnerable," Mondesir said. "The more
truthful you are with your poems, the
more you're respected."

Annual electroacoustic fest pushes musical envelope
DAVID LOW I AVENUE WRITER
While the Nintendo Wii may be one of the hottest video
game systems today, it also serves as one of the newest electro-
Some of James Paul Sain's students have used the game
controllers to manipulate computers, using the buttons and
switches to create songs.
Sain, an associate professor of music at UF, is the founder
and director of the upcoming annual Florida Electroacoustic
Music Festival, now in its 16th year.
Today through Saturday, Sain, his students and a host of
musicians from around the world will converge on the Black
Box Theatre of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts for a
session on the study and practice of electronic music.
Electroacoustic music is anything that can be created, repli-
cated and manipulated by electronic means, Sain said.
While the types of compositions at the festival aren't exactly
what you would expect to hear while out dancing, the styles
are closely related.
Electroacoustic music shares a lot with popular genres, he
said, but is more sympathetic toward classical tendencies.
Much of the same technology popular electronic artists use,
such as synthesizer keyboards and computer programs, is also
used by electroacoustic artists.
The festival itself has been widely accepted. It is the oldest
festival of its kind in the world, Sain said.
Because of its longevity, the event is highly regarded by
musicians around the globe who travel on their own funds to

FOOTBALL, from page 27
ing to go to the training room for mas-
sages and exercises to heal the break.
"Rehab was tough," Jones said. "I
.wanted to get back out here so fast, see-
ing them practice."
Jones tried to quicken the healing
process, but he ended up doing more
damage than good.
He, started walking on his right
foot a little too soon, which Jones said
caused the bones in his foot to shift. He
wound up prolonging his rehabilitation
for an extra three weeks.
"A bunch of the teammates told me,
'Don't worry about it. You'll come back
next year and it's going to be all good,'"
Jones said. "My mom called me every-
day and said God was watching out for
me, so that really got me through."
Co-defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong said the team doctors are
pleased with the way Jones' foot has
healed, but the linebacker's dean bill
of health doesn't necessarily guarantee
a starting role.
"It's just so hard to say right now be-
cause he's competing for a position, just
like the other three," Strong said.
The two likely starters are sopho-
mores Brandon Spikes, who Meyer
recently called a standout, and Dustin
Doe, who the team is punishing inter-
nally after he was recently charged with
fighting in public.
Jones is likely battling Ryan Stamper
for the final spot.
Replacing last season's three line-
backers will be a challenge with such
a youthful bunch, and UF coach Urban
Meyer voiced concern that Jones' injury
set him back even further.
"He's behind the other guys not
because of his ability but just because of
experience," Meyer said.
Even though he lacks experience,
the other linebackers haven't acquired
Spikes, the most experienced of the
group, played in nine games last season
and made 15 tackles.
That's a far cry from Everett's team-
high 85 tackles or Siler's 77.
But while the linebackers may be
lacking minutes on the field, Jones is
more than confident that each will be
ready when their numbers are called.
"We're young, but we're hungry,"
Jones said. "I think everybody is going
to underestimate us, and we're going to
come out with a bang."
UF linebackers Ryan Stamper (left) and AJ. Jones (right) tackle running

54-hole total was the second-best score on a par-72
course in his UF career.
"Tyler had a nice tournament against a really
strong field," Alexander said. "He's proven to be
a pretty reliable guy for us, and we have to make
some decisions in the next few days about the post-
season. With the way he's swinging the club right
now, he's someone that we could see more of as we
go further along."
Sophomore Billy Horschel tallied a final-round

After starting off strong with a 72 (even),
freshman Tim McKenney carded two consecutive

UF WOMEN'S TENNIS
Gators cruise past Mississippi in suspended match
By PHIL KEGLER
The weather held back the UF women's
tennis team in March.
Once play resumed Wednesday, however,
Mississippi couldn't do the same.
The No. 3 Gators (18-1, 9-1 Southeastern
Conference) had too much talent for the Rebels
(4-17, 0-10 SEC) in a dominating 6-1 win.
The'win moved UF into a tie with Georgia
atop the SEC standings with one match left
for each team. Play resumed with the same
lineups and doubles scores from the March 3
match, which was suspended due to rain. The
Rebels had already forfeited No. 3 doubles.
Whitney Benik and Nina Suvak returned
to their old court one stomping grounds with
a 4-2 lead. Resuming where they left off, Benik
and Suvak went on to win 8-6, clinching the
doubles point for the Gators.
On court two, Csilla Borsanyi and
Anastasia Revzina were leading 3-2 with the
score 40-40 in the sixth game when the earlier
match was postponed.
The duo dominated Wednesday's portion
of the match for an 8-4 victory, completing a
doubles sweep. No. 68 Borsanyi continued
her recent singles success, winning her sixth
straight match to give the Gators a 2-0 lead.
The freshman dominated Mississippi's
Nika Koukhartchouk in all parts of the game
for a 6-0,6-2 victory.
"It was a perfect day," Borsanyi said. "I got
a little mad because I knew I could win (6-0,
No. 94 Suvak added a 6-2, 6-2 victory on
court four to put UF within one point of the
victory. It was the senior's 99th career singles
win. One more victory would make her only
the sixth player in school history to have 100
wins in both singles and doubles play.
"It was a perfect day."
UF tennis player
On court six, No. 107 Lolita Frangulyan
clinched the victory when Carlin Cochran
retired after losing the first set 7-5 and the first
three games of the second set.
No. 18 Diana Srebrovic defeated No. 74
Ilona Somers 6-2, 6-4 in the No. 1 singles
"(Somers) has won a lot of matches recent-
ly against good players," UF coach Roland
Thomqvist said. "(Wednesday) was a quality
win for Diana."
Benik kept things going on court five with a
6-3,6-2 victory against Preethi Subramanian.
Freshman Megan Alexander was unable to
finish the sweep, however, losing 6-0,4-6, 1-0
(10-8) to Kseniia Tokarieva.
Alexander has lost all three of her singles
matches since Friday, when she returned to
the lineup from a lower back injury.
"(Alexander) pressed a little too much to-
day," Thornqvist said. "Losing two over the
weekend against two very good players hurts
, your confidence. I'm sure she'll get over the
hump sooner or later."

Improving Ingram tapped to become football's face
* JEMALLE CORNELIUS
HELD THE TITLE LAST YEAR.
By MIKE MCCALL
Spring practice is drawing to a
dose, and competition for many
starting positions are still wide
Cornelius Ingram has locked up
playing time at both tight end and
receiver, and he may be adding
another role the face of Florida
"I think we're going to go with
that," UF coach Urban Meyer said.
"It's not official, but it's looking
pretty good, though."
Ingram would follow in the
footsteps of last year's leader, wide
receiver Jemalle Cornelius, and the
inaugural face, corerback Vernell
"He's just a high character guy
that's extremely unselfish a lot
like our basketball team and like
our team here last year," Meyer said
of Ingram. "He's a guy that will do
anything. He's already done some
things for me behind the scenes.
"He changes people's lives.
That's what Jemalle did and that's
what CI is going to do."
Meyer couldn't have imagined
saying those words a year ago, when
the native of nearby Hawthorne was
considering transferring from UF.
"He was gone/" Meyer said.

KICKERS FACE OFF: Wednesday's
scrimmage ended with a competi-
tion between the kickers.
After watching Chris Hetland
struggle last season, UF is hoping
for more consistency.
Jonathan Phillips and Joey Ijjas
alternated kicking field goals, two at
a time, from various distances.
Ijjas was much more consistent
- making more and keeping most
of his misses dose while Phillips
shanked several nearly off of the
field. Phillips showed off the more
powerful leg, however, nailing a
"They've got strong legs," Meyer
said. "Accuracy is still an issue, but
Ijjas is right on Phillips's tail. I can't
tell you who would start if we start-
ed tomorrow. I'd say it's pretty cose
to even, but probably Ijjas has a little
bit of an edge."

Wide receiver Cornelius Ingram makes a catch during the Gators' practice on Monday at the UF practice
fields. Ingram has been named the unofficial face of Florida football.
GATORS' 'TRAIN' BACK ON TRACK:
At the beginning of spring prac-
tices, Meyer referred to his team as
a "train wreck" due to the lack of
depth and experience.
* A few weeks later, the coach has
changed his mind.
"We're starting to look pretty
good, so I wouldn't call it tht any-
more," Meyer said. "I really said (a
train wreck)? That's horrible."
