Just days after the Virginia Tech mas-

Machen talks of VT, tuition at forum
0 HE SAID THE "ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT

During a forum in the Reitz Union on Thursday,
UF President Bernie Machen addressed more than
100 students regarding campus safety, the "Academic
Enhancement Program" and the College of Liberal Arts
-and Sciences' $4 million deficit.
Machen began by speaking about the Virginia Tech
"The events in Blacksburg have imprinted on all of
us," Machen said. "We're all suffering the kind of suffer-
ing they're going through."

T Machen said, is the chain of
UF command among the police
4 In an interview after the
forum, Machen said communication is so fluid, the uni-
versity and city and county police work as one unit.
"UF is a true college environment," he said. "We
must preserve what makes UF great."
He also discussed the state Senate's roadblock of a
bill that would allow UF to charge incoming students
$1,000 a year on top of tuition that would not be covered
by Florida Bright Futures. But, he said, the bill is not

Black ribbons to unite
In the wake of a shooting
massacre at Virginia Tech that
left 33 dead Monday, one UF
student is calling for unity.
J.D. Moises, a UF sociology
junior, is asking students nation-
wide to wear black ribbons today
in honor of the victims. He cre-
ated a Facebook group to gather
support for the idea.
Moises came up with the idea
early Wednesday morning after
he realized that, though colleges
across the nation were holding
memorials, none of the schools
seemed to act in unison.
The black ribbons would
show solidarity with the massa-
cre's survivors and compassion
for its victims, he said.
Membership in Moises'
group, titled "Remembering
VTech," swelled to 1,668 as of
Thursday. Members include stu-
dents from a number of schools,
including the University of San
Francisco and the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.
"It just kept growing and grow-
ing," he said.
As the disaster relief coordina-
tor for Red Cross Gators, Moises is
attuned to the needs of people in
this type of situation.
He said he would also like to
arrange for flower deliveries to
victims' families. He first came up
with the idea after the terrorist at-
tacks of Sept. 11, and he'd like it to
become a reality.
According to his plan, students
would be able to purchase the
flowers at a reduced price and
send them to the grieving.
Moises hopes to find a flower
delivery company willing to un-
dertake the project and start col-
lecting donations next week.

contest, takes place today and

Abortion ban upheld by U.S. Supreme Court
By BRITTANY DAVIS
The U.S. Supreme Court decided
Wednesday to uphold a ban on certain types
of abortions, leaving Americans to wonder if
more restrictions are on the horizon.
In a 5-4 vote, the court legitimized the
Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. This marks the
first time the Supreme Court has upheld a ban
on a specific abortion procedure.
This development has left anti-abortion
advocates rejoicing and abortion-rights sup-
Amy Kennedy, director of external affairs
at Planned Parenthood of North Central
Florida, said she's afraid this decision could
lead to legislation banning all abortions.
"This is a pivotal ruling for woman's health
and safety," Kennedy said. "American women
deserve the right to make personal health care
decisions free of government intrusion."
The banned procedure, technically called
"intact dilation and extraction," also known
as a partial-birth abortion, would terminate
second-trimester pregnancies by removing
the fetus whole.
The procedure is performed when the fetus
is too large to be suctioned from the woman's
body, as in most first-trimester abortions.
About 88 percent of abortions are per-
formed within the first trimester of pregnancy
During the second trimester, abortions are
usually performed because of health risks to
the patient, Kennedy said.
Some speculate that the Supreme Court
is taking a new course on the abortion issue.
That assumption leads abortion rights activ-
ists to worry that Roe v. Wade, the case that
established a woman's constitutional right to
abortion, could be overturned.
The ban indicates a reversal in the Supreme
Court's position on abortion since 2000, when
the court declared it unconstitutional to restrict
abortions without considering the patient's
health. Under the new ban, the prohibited
type of partial-birth abortion is illegal unless
a woman's health risks are severe enough to
endanger her life.
"The ban fails to safeguard women because
it doesn't contain an exception to protect their
health," Kennedy said.
Stephanie Ann Diaz, a member of Vox:
Voices for Planned Parenthood, said people
forget that choosing to have an abortion is a
difficult decision that can scar women both
physically and emotionally.
"Most people who are pro-choice want
abortions to be rare, safe and legal," she said.
But anti-abortion activists say the fetus's
health and safety should be considered equal
to that of the mother.
Natalia Pedraza, the president of the Pro-
Life Alliance and a UF economics senior, said
the ban is a step in the right direction.
"It's a victory for the pro-life side," she
said. "In general, abortion
is a horrible thing for the
baby and the mother."
are more traumatic, she
"It's different than all
the other abortion proce-
Rush dures, and people should
be educated on the differ-
ent types to really get an understanding of
what this ban means," she said.
UF sophomore Steven Hoffstetter said he
believes the procedure is "barbaric."
"I've always thought it was a terrible
thing," he said. "When it was first banned, I
couldn't even believe it was allowed before."
Hoffstetter's feelings echo those of
President George W. Bush, who said in a press
release that the new law reflects the "compas-
sion and humanity of America."
Bush also said he hoped the law would
lead to more serious restrictions on abortion.
"The Supreme Court's decision is an af-
firmation of the progress we have made over
the past six years in protecting human dignity
and upholding the sanctity of life," he said.
"We will continue to work for the day when
every child is welcomed in life and protected
Despite the controversy, UF constitutional
law professor Sharon Rush said the implica-
tions might not be as serious as many expect.
"I don't see it as such a dramatic decision as
everyone else is seeing," she said.
Rush pointed to the 1992 Roe v. Casey
Supreme Court decision, which reaffirmed
Roe v. Wade.
After researching the justices' majority and
dissenting opinions on partial-birth abortions,
Rush said she thinks the ban might not lead to
Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Associate
Justice Samuel Alito Jr., the two justices ap-
pointed by Bush, are the most likely to vote
against abortion if the issue arises again, Rush
But, she said, abortion rights are not likely
to be overturned under the current justices.

"At first I wasn't really into
the idea, but I definitely want-
ed to try out just for the sake
of playing baseball for a day,"
When they got to the tryout,
Pinchuk said he was intimi-

There were minor league
players, college baseball play-
ers and others there who "just
looked like they've been play-
ing their entire lives," he said.

Burrito Bros.' second location closes
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Don't mess with the guacamole.
"You make it out of California
avocados, or you don't make it," said
Randy Akerson, the longtime owner of
Gainesville's Burrito Bros. Taco Co. "Half-
packaged pulp? No. You can't."
He said trying to cut corners when it
came to guacamole was one of the reasons
that the second location of the Gainesville
restaurant failed less than a year after it
opened in North Tampa.
"It took a while for the beheaded chick-
en to finally fall," he said of the ill-fated
restaurant, which opened April 2006 and
dosed in February.
Akerson said he was approached
two years ago by Ryan McDonald, a UF
alumnus and former Outback Steakhouse
marketing executive who wanted to open
another Burrito Bros. in the alumni-heavy
city of Tampa.
After years of saying no to people
who asked for his permission to franchise
the Burrito Bros. name, Akerson said he
thought he had finally found someone
who could preserve his vision..
"It's quirky as hell, but it's been
around for more than 30 years."

some decisions on his own, like the restau-

say in what went on the menu.
He was upset by some subtle changes
McDonald made, he said, such as serving
Tijuana Flats-style big tacos or peanut but-
ter and jelly sandwiches for fussy kids.
A downfall of the Tampa restaurant
was McDonald's attempt to turn it into the
"Taj Mahal of Burrito Brothers," Akerson
said. He said the gaudy decorations and
"pointless" security cameras were a waste
"He had to do everything bigger and
better," Akerson said. "Small is beauti-
McDonald could not be reached for
comment by press time.
Despite the hassle, Akerson said he
doesn't regret the experience.
"My reputation, I think, is good enough

Akerson spent about five months in
Tampa away from his wife, cat, garden
and friends helping McDonald run the
restaurant, he said.

6, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, APRIL 20,2007
First we were shocked at the large-scale rampage at
Virginia Tech on Monday. Then we were horrified by the
photos and video the shooter sent to NBC. But frankly,
we're tired of hearing about all of this. Instead, we'd like
to celebrate the lives of the victims and life in general.
And so, we bring you this week's lighthearted edition
Darts & Laurels
First up, we hand a way-to-stick-it-to-the-man LAUREL
to the Great Underwear Dash. The UF administration
tried to halt the hedonistic hustle due to its lack of a per-
mit, which is required for any on-campus charity event.
The runners were asked to come clothed to the Plaza of the
Americas, strip down to their Skivvies and donate their
discarded clothes to charity.
The racy runners dropped trou regardless of what UF
said, and the University Police Department was helpless
once the group reached University Avenue. Why anyone
would have a problem with a little fleshy fun is beyond us
- especially when it's for a cause so we're happy the
event was a success.
- Speaking of good causes, here's a learn-to-teach-and-
teach-to-learn LAUREL to Teach for America partici-
pants. Teach for America pairs recent college graduates
with low-income schools. And it's always great to see UF
students get involved and give back.
Sure, it can be rough metal detectors in the hallways
don't exactly scream; "We're here to learn." Subpar school
conditions, apathetic students and few resources -can be
discouraging. But the rewards, such as connecting with
students, are worth all the trouble.
Next up, it's a now-that-makes-learning-fun LAUREL
to kooky costume-wearing professors. If only all lectures
were like this. From Hawaiian shirts to full-on Disney
character costumes, these teachers know how to keep their
Sure, wearing a coat and tie to class may show that the
professor respects his students. But hey, this is Florida, and
most of the time it's too damn hot for that. Dressing up as
a superhero for a day is disrespectful. In fact, it sounds like
a great ploy to get students to show up. Creativity in the
classroom is always a great idea.
But after class, we're always hungry. So we often head
over to the Plaza of the Americas for a midday meal.
Krishna Lunch is always a delicious option, but we
can't help handing a thanks-for-saving-us-three-dollars
LAUREL to Animal Activists of Alachua's Vegfest, which
was held Wednesday. Much of the food was donated by
Many people don't realize how tasty and easy veg-
etarianism can be, and being a vegetarian isn't just about
saving animals. It's about living a healthier lifestyle. We're
all about that.
And here's a who-knew-that-even-though-you-pay-
your-rent-you-could-still-get-evicted DART to landlords
who don't pay their mortgages specifically one at La
Mancha Apartments. As a result of his irresponsibility,
some residents are damn near homeless at the worst pos-
sible time: right before exam week.
Now is a great time for the Gainesville powers that be
to create some helpful legislation to prevent anyone else
from finding themselves in this devastating situation.
And finally, it's an our-hearts-go-out-to-you LAUREL
to everyone affected by the VT massacre. We hope every-
one can begin to move on and heal.

For whom do the bells toll? The Hokies.
t's been a rough week in Gator Country, and it's easy
to understand why.
The cheers from the orange-and-blue-clad mobs no
longer ring free on University Avenue, and the national
championship trophies are stored safely in their display
cases. There is a somber mask on campus, covering up
the year of the Gator.
Sure, exams are coming up, and a sobering exam week
looms over the horizon. But this week, the Gator Nation
was delivered the biggest party foul in the middle of its
Earlier this week we received a stark reminder of the
horror of the 1990 Gainesville student murders. Except
this time it was different. The police sirens were quiet in
Gainesville for the most part, and it was a different cam-
pus that the reporters stormed.
On Monday, shots were fired. Sleeping students at a
Virginia Tech dorm awoke from their beds to the sounds
of their neighbors being shot. A few hours later and on
the other side of campus, classmates and professors cow-
ered to avoid more shots from the same gunman. The
horror was over by 10:30 a.m.
Thirty-two victims and their killer were dead.
In Gainesville, ihe emotions seemed somewhat re-
moved. It felt like we had seen it all before, even though
most UF students were in elementary school when
Danny Rolling came to town.
So Tuesday, we all packed up our orange and blue
gear, even if only temporarily.
Every time I log onto Facebook, it seems like more
of my friends have replaced their profile pictures with
ones declaring, "Today we are all Hokies." But perhaps
they should read, "This week we are all Hokies." As the
days go on, more and more students join groups to honor
those who died Monday.
And maybe, just maybe, we have packed up some of
our Gator spirit and sent it to Blacksburg, Va. we know
they need it there.
That's one of the great things
about being a Gator: Even if we're
enemies on the field, we're still
friends, in the classroom. Those
students and professors who lost
Gordon Van Owen their lives Monday were no differ-
email@example.com ent from the rest of us. They had
families. They had friends. They
But their lives were cut tragically short.
Now it's Friday, and this horrific week is finally com-
ing to a close. It's time to move past mourning and enter
this next week celebrating life.
We've all heard of Ernest Hemingway's novel "For
Whom the Bell Tolls," but few realize he borrowed that
title from John Donne's metaphysical poem "Meditation
In it, Donne wrote, "No man is an island, entire of
itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the
OK, so they weren't Gators they were Hokies. But
they were a part of the student population.
. Donne continued: "Any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind."
To close out a week of mourning, I think our bells
should toll Friday at 3:30 p.m. the Century Tower bell
should chime 33 times, once for each of the 33 people
killed. To show respect and honor their memory, stu-
dents and faculty should observe a moment of silence
- or at least 33 seconds.
We can send all the school spirit and emotions we
want via Facebook, but the real way to show our mourn-
ing is to honor the legacy these people left behind. By
chiming our bells, we can show we are there in spirit.

Letters to the Editor
Companies have no social responsibility
Wednesday's editorial "Sweet Charity"
stated that corporate social responsibility is
a "novel idea," but it's not.
Free-market enterprise and people who
made their fortunes in business have histori-
cally been, by far, the largest supporters of
private, nonprofit charities and the drivers
of social development.
It also said that corporate social respon-
sibility means companies "shouldn't just
think about their profit line." Why do you
think Ben & Jerry's holds its Free Cone Day?
It attracts customers to its stores, raises pub-
lic opinion of Ben & Jerry's and justifies to
consumers the high prices it charges for its
environmentally friendly ice cream. This is
all excellent. It's capitalism at its best, and
if you're willing to pay a "pretty penny" for
ice cream made with fewer pounds of car-
bon dioxide, go for it.
But don't tell me that corporations have
"social responsibility." Ask yourself: Would
you invest in a company that made you lose
Focus on victims' lives, not killer's death
I'm writing in response to all the articles
being written about the Virginia Tech mass
killing. Please stop writing about that dis-
gusting killer, and focus instead on the won-
derful, precious lives the victims led prior
to their untimely deaths. The killer wanted
us to glorify his death with constant media
coverage. The package of pictures and video
NBC received Wednesday solidified this
idea. Thus far, the media have been buying
into this repulsive man's wishes by allowing
his chilling pictures and video to consume
television coverage and front pages of news-'
papers. Please stop this. Instead, help us
learn about the amazing 32 people whose
lives were sadly cut short by one man. My
thoughts are with everyone at VT.
Media should back off on VT coverage
On the front page of most major newspa-
pers Thursday were photographs and quotes
supplied by the VT killer.
The hate-imbued rant of one young
man trumped stories ranging from the U.S
Supreme Court's landniark decision on abor-
tion to the continuing carnage in Iraq. This
point alone should be sufficient to raise the
ire of the American people, but there is a more
critical transgression wrought by such journal-
Instead of stories of heroism like the
engineering professor who sacrificed his life
for the his students' safety or a memorial of
the tragically departed, the mainstream media
once again chose to broadcast the musings of
a fool. And by doing so, they proved their re-
The greatest possible threat to come from
this unconscionable though not surprising
- lack of media foresight is the emboldening
of others who, like the shooter, feel socially
excluded and ostracized.
Inadvertently lionizing this killer and
posthumously providing him the notoriety he
craved in life may create stronger incentives
for others to imitate the heinous actions in
order to achieve the same.
Rather than pour salt on the still-fresh
wounds of the VT massacre, the mainstream
media ought to show restraint, if out of noth-
ing more than respect for the loved ones of
those who were so brutally and callously ex-

Asian Americans shouldn't fear backlash
I'm writing in response to Wednesday's
article about Asian-American students wor-
rying about possible implications that could
emerge from Monday's horrific events at
In 2002, when the sniper shootings
took place around Washington, D.C., and
Maryland, a lot of people were shocked to
find out that the shooters were black.
Many people, including criminal experts,
assumed the person behind the 10 shooting
deaths would be a middle-aged white male.
Other than Sept. 11, the sniper incident,
and the VT shootings, most notorious in-
cidents in the United States have involved
white men. The Unabomber and the
Oklahoma City bomber fit that description,
as did a number of people involved recently
in school shootings.
There is no reason for Asian Americans
to fear repercussions. When it comes to
tragedy there is no stereotype dangerous
and mentally unsound individuals can come
from any background or race.
What took place at VT was an isolated
incident, and I think UF and the rest of the
country understands that.

Book helps students record traditions
By ETHEL MORENO
Alligator Contributing Writer
After Stacy Colon leaves UF this se-
mester, she will miss walking around
"I'm going to miss seeing the Century
Tower, Turlington just being here every
day," the graduate student said. "It's go-
ing to be pretty surreal not being here
She was able to document all her
favorite experiences in the revived "F
Book," started last summer by the Florida
Cicerones and the Student Alumni
The book is a combination guidebook
and scrapbook. It provides information
on dining, activities and UF history, and it
contains places to put pictures and ticket
stubs students used to mark UF "tradi-
These include eating at The Swamp
Restaurant and getting .your photograph
taken in front of the Albert and Alberta
statue on West University Avenue.
The F Book was originally passed out
to all freshmen from the 1920s to 1960s as
a rule book, said Laura Lentz, assistant
IM M-M Ii I M1M I
director of membership and marketing for
the alumni association.
All freshmen received the book free
during the summer 2006 Preview, and it
will be used in First-Year Florida classes,
Lentz said. The one-credit First-Year
Florida classes are designed to help stu-
dents with their transition to UF.
"I would love nothing more than
to see it become a tradition
UF graduate student
The first edition of the book sold all
2,000 copies by Christmas, and the second
will be at the UF Bookstore, she added.
Members of the association receive
a lapel pin for every 10 traditions they
complete. Once 40 are completed, the stu-
dent becomes a "Tradition Keeper" and is
awarded a medallion to wear at gradua-
tion. Lentz said about 20 to 25 graduating
students will be awarded the medal in-
Lentz, who has been contacted by other
universities about starting a tradition pro-
gram, said she would like to see everyone
on campus complete the traditions.
"I think once people start seeing their
friends with medals, they're going to start
wanting one," she said.
For Colon, who has completed 42 of
the 50 activities, the best part was being
able to start off the F Book with a picture
of her UF undergraduate graduation in
"I was able to start the way most
people end," she said.
She said the book gave her a second
chance to go back and complete all the
traditions she had completed the first time
around, but hadn't documented.
In 10 or 20 years, when she reflects
on her college experience, the book will
be something she can show her kids, she
The book is like a photo album, some-
thing for her to remember all the special
moments, she added.
"It'll remind me of the great times I had
in college and make me sad that I can't go
back," Colon said. "I would love nothing
more than to see it become a tradition

FORUM, from page 1
When it came to the CLAS deficit,
Machen called it a "tremendous budget
problem." But he said the college is on a
path to solve the problem and to return
CLAS to the hands of the faculty.
"We're on a good trajectory with good
leadership," he said.
While he said he didn't know of any
changes to the five-year plan to get CLAS
out of the red, he said UF is planning to
continue channeling unbudgeted money
to the college and to reduce the debt to $3
million by next year.
After his speech, -Machen addressed
questions from students, including one
regarding UF's Gator Nation campaign.
"When you hear 'Gator,' we want you
to think of Gainesville and the college,"
Machen said. "We want to be a brand

Willis nurses Achilles injury
* THE JUNIOR MIGHT MISS
ONE DAY OF NCAAS.
By RACHEL ROBINS
Only a dedicated individual
will voluntary immerse herself
in frigid water for 10 minutes
for the chance to compete.
This is a normal occurrence
for junior Nicola Willis after she
finishes practice with UF's No.
1 gymnastics team (21-0-1) to
calm down inflammation in her
"I'll do anything to make it
feel better," Willis said.
Willis suffered the injury
before Christmas but thought it
would just go away.
When it didn't heal, she
figured it was time to tell some-
Athletic trainer Stacey Roller
designed a treatment plan for
Willis that focused on tendon-
"She's doing really well,"
Roller said. "If she was a
normal person following this
program, and she did not ex-
ercise, she would probably be
"But because she is a gym-
nast, and she continue* to land
on it it's going to hurt."
On Thursday in the NCAA
Championships, Willis will be
tumbling on the floor that .took
her out of her favorite event.
"If she was a normal
person following this
program, and she did not
exercise, she would prob-
ably be just fine. But be-
cause she is a gymnast,
and she continues to land
on it it's going to hurt."
UF athletic trainer
During UF's dual competi-
tion at Utah on March 9, Willis
fell during her first pass.
Willis was able to complete
the routine, but all she was
thinking about was getting off
Willis competed in uneven
bars the next two meets.
But she stayed off the floor
for more than a month after ag-
gravating the injury.
At the NCAA Northeast
Region Championships, she fi-
nally made her return.
Even though her 9.875 score
on floor exercise was not her
best, it was enough to get her
To prepare, Willis practiced
the maneuvers by herself over
and over again.
Faehn still hasn't decided
what she'll do with Willis at
"I don't think her (injury)
will hold up for two days at
nationals," Faehn said. "We are
tentatively leaning toward us-
ing Sam (Lutz) on the first day
and using Nic the second day,
so that Nic won't take the hit
Willis has come back, but her
injury has produced frustration
for the England native.
"Injuries are probably one of
the most frustrating thing when
you are an athlete," Willis said.
"You have so much passion and
you really want to compete and
do the best for your team. It's
really hard to sit back and watch
and just think what you can do
to help the team."

Gators get another shot at Alabama
,J11 THE CRIMSON TIDE
DEFEATED UF IN MARCH.
By PHIL KEGLER
UF coach Andy Jackson got
the matchup he wanted.
'C The No. 3 seed Gators (12-6,
7-4 Southeastern Conference)
will face No. 6 seed Alabama
(20-6, 8-4 SEC) at 8 a.m. CDT
in the quarterfinals of the SEC
Tournament in Baton Rouge,
La. The Crimson Tide defeated
No. 11 seed South Carolina 4-1
in the first round Thursday.
Jackson knows despite
the seeding UF likely enters
today's match as an underdog.
The No. 20 Gators are facing
No. 16 Alabama, who has won
"Frankly, I am happy
(Alabama) won," Jackson said.
"It would be easier to beat
South Carolina. We've already
lost to Alabama, (but) the point
of the SEC Tournament is to
try and .secure a NCAA first
and second round (site)."
The Crimson Tide defeated
UF 5-2 in Tuscaloosa on March
30. The Gators' points came
from singles victories by fresh-
man Jesse Levine and junior
Greg Ouellette. Levine and
Ouellette, No. 6 in the country
in doubles, defeated then-No.
28 Dan Buikema and Mathieu
Thibaudeau 8-6 in the No. 1
doubles match. UF lost the
other two doubles matches
Jackson feels today's re-
match will be different than
the teams' first meeting, espe-
cially because of the neutral
"No question that (home
court) is a factor in tennis
matches," he said. "We're a
little bit more experienced,
Both teams' lineups have
undergone changes during the
Jackson will keep most of
the lineup the same, but ex-
pects to make a few changes to
try and edge the momentum to
Levine, Ouellette and junior
Nestor Briceno will play in
their normal singles positions
of No. 1, 2 and 3, respectively.
Junior Billy Mulligan will stay
in the No. 4 slot, with senior
Jordan Dolberg playing on
The No. 6 position is some-
thing Jackson will decide this
morning before the match.
Freshman Geoffrey Barton
has played there the last three
matches and has won all three.
Freshman Dan Cash and
sophomore Shaun Young are
Jackson is also toying
with the idea of substituting
Dolberg into one of the bot-
tom two doubles pairings.
Dolberg played No. 3 doubles
with Mulligan Sunday at
Auburn. The match against
the Tigers was a special case,
however, because UF was
resuming a match that had
been suspended due to rain.
Dolberg has suffered from a
sore shoulder all season, but
had completed his singles
match before rain halted play
on April 1. Therefore, when
the Auburn match came down
to the doubles point, Jackson
could play Dolberg in doubles,
without overworking his arm.
"Jordan Dolberg is some-
body that's really valuable
to us because we don't have
a lot of depth," Jackson said.
"He's somebody who has got
a whole lot of experience, but
he's had an arm problem. He's
one of our better doubles play-
ers. I haven't been playing him
in doubles all year because I
didn't want to waste a singles
point chasing a doubles point
we may or may not get."
The lineup change almost
earned the Gators a win
against Auburn. The match
came down to court three,
where Dolberg and Mulligan
had a match point but eventu-
ally lost in a tiebreaker 9-8 (5).
On Monday,"Jackson said
UF would probably stick with
what it has done all season,
despite the success Dolberg
and Mulligan had Sunday.
By Thursday night, however,
Jackson still had not made up
his mind and said he might
play Dolberg and Mulligan at
the No. 2 doubles position to-

UF to take
By PHIL KEGLER
The UF women's tennis team doesn't
expect a big test today, but the same
can't be said for the team's No. 1 singles
player, junior Diana Srebrovic.
The No. 2 seed Gators (19-1, 10-1
Southeastern Conference) begin play at
the SEC Tournament in Lexington, Ky.,
at 10 a.m. today, taking on No. 7 seed
LSU in the quarterfinals.
The Tigers (16-8, 6-6 SEC) defeated
No. 10 seed Mississippi 4-0 in first round
UF and LSU met
on March 25 and
the Gators defeated
the Tigers 6-1 in
Baton Rouge, La.,
but Srebrovic lost to
Srebrovic Megan Falcon 7-5,
6-2. Falcon was
named SEC Player of the Year as the
only LSU player to receive All-SEC hon-
ors. Undefeated in SEC play this season,
Falcon holds a 22-match winning streak
coming into today. No. 18 Srebrovic actu-
ally led 4-0 in the first set back in March
but didn't have the stamina to keep up
the pressure. She has gone 5-1 since.
"I thought (Srebrovic) was clearly the
better player at that time," Thomqvist
said. "She got fatigued in the second set,
(but) I don't think that's going to happen
tomorrow. Diana's in much better shape
(and) playing better now."
Freshman Megan Alexander did not
play in that match due to injury.
"We beat them fairly handily without
Megan," UF coach Roland Thomqvist
said. "With Megan, I think we do match
up pretty well. We're fit and we're play-
ing really good doubles. We're going to
try and continue the good streak we've

day. Besides the match against
Auburn, the pair had only
played one other time together,
an 8-6 loss against Central
Florida on Jan. 31.
Jackson must weigh the pos-
sibilities of three back-to-back
days of playing on Dolberg's
shoulder with the fact that the
Gators won't keep playing un-
less they keep winning.
"(The Crimson Tide) do
present some problems for us
that we weren't able to solve
at Alabama," Jackson said. "We
are trying to make a couple
adjustments where we lost
If the lineup Alabama used
against South Carolina on
Thursday is any indication,
the Crimson Tide have shuffled
their own since facing UF as
Alabama used the same
doubles pairings at No. 1 and
No. 2 but used Billy Mertz and
Javier Bes at No. 3 against the
Gamecocks. Mertz did not play
doubles against UF in March.
No. 76-ranked Mertz played
No. 3 singles against the Gators,
but has jumped to the No. 1 slot
since then, shifting Joseph Jung
and Sammy Struyf down to No.
2 and 3, respectively.
Mathieu Thibaudeau has
moved up to the No. 4 slot,
while Bes moved down to No.
Another possible concern for
UF is No. 10-ranked Ouellette's
lackluster performance in his
last singles match, a 6-2,6-1 loss
to No. 115 Pedros Campos from
South Carolina. The Gators
have to hope Ouellette simply
didn't bring his best, and that's
what Jackson believes.
"I certainly hope it was a bad
day," Jackson said. "He was a
little bit sick (and) also was not
prepared as he could've been."
That being said, Jackson
was quick to point out that
everyone makes mistakes, and
Ouellette has performed at a
very high level for his team this
"Now he's got about 10 more

"We like the 8 a.m. match

When it comes down to
it, Jackson feels his team is

success the rest of the season.
"It's tough to play when you

playing a lot better. I'm trying to
get her a win today that will give

Senior Nina Suvak will play
in the No. 4 slot. Freshman Csilla
Borsanyi, winner of five straight,
will play on court five. Junior
Whitney Benik will fill the No.
6 position. Thornqvist doesn't
worry about his team looking past
the overmatched Tigers.
"The older players have been
around and they know you can't
take anything for granted," he
said. "We respect LSU for what
they are, and they're certainly
going to try hard, since they have
nothing to lose."
UF hopes to defeat the Tigers
quickly because the match will be
stopped once it has been clinched,
and this would keep the team
rested for the weekend.
"If you take care of business
and come out focused, you end up
playing a shorter amount of time,
and that helps you out the rest of
the tournament," Thomqvist said.
The Gators practiced an hour
on Wednesday and Thursday.
Having been here before,
Thomqvist knows it's important to
keep his team fresh for three days
of play, both mentally and physi-
cally. While the overall match
may no t on it, Thornmqvist
looks forward to the duel between
Srbrovic and Falcon.

going to go at it," Thomqvist said.

UF takes on top-ranked teams in SEC Tournament

As the UF women's golf team

Conference Championships, one
thing is certain: This is not the
same group of girls from last fall.
After failing to finish in the top-
five in any of its matches in the fall

After up-and-down spring, Gators head to SEC tourney
Golfers will face three top-25 teams
By DANNY KLEIN
It's clear that they're capable. It's obvious they
can play with the best. But for the UF men's golf
team there are still plenty of questions and no
time left for answers.
After a season comparable to a high-speed
roller-coaster ride, the No. 5 Gators will clean
the slate and aim for their 15th Southeastern
Conference title in school history.
Starting today, the team heads to Sea Island,
Ga., to play in the SEC Tournament, which in-
cludes top-ranked Georgia, No. 3 Alabama and
No. 17 Tennessee.
"We have a terrific conference in terms of team
strength and depth," UF coach Buddy Alexander
said. "Nothing will come easy out here this
weekend. Our guys are prepared to battle with
every shot. It will come down to who can make
the most shots and stay out of trouble."
After a fall season when the team finished
in the top five in all of its matches, the Gators
headed into the spring with high expectations
and a No. 1 ranking.
But after a campaign riddled with inconsis-
tencies, including only two top-five finishes and
a 10th-place showing in the season finale, the
team is still searching for an identity.
"We can and will play better than what we've
shown recently," Alexander said. "We've got our
work cut out for us this weekend, and we're do-
ing everything possible to be ready to go."
Among those who have run out of time is
junior Manuel Villegas.
Villegas was a staple of the Gators' success in
the fall, and after winning the Gator Invitational
in February, he looked poised to become a star.
However, the junior began to falter and for
the rest of the season, finished no higher than a
tie for 58th.
The junior will not participate this weekend
and will be absent from the lineup for the first
time this season.
UF will feature a revamped squad due in part
to drawing a place in the first group of tee times
for today's opening round.
Sophomore Billy Horschel, who was recently
named to the U.S. Palmer Cup team, will play in
the fifth spot but tee off first.
Horschel is currently ranked as the top player
in the country and will look to lead the young
Gators in Georgia.
Junior Tyler Brown will be.
playing in the one spot for the
first time in his collegiate career.
Brown is coming off a strong
outing in the U.S. Collegiate
Championship, where he fin-
ished with a 225 (9 over), good
for 20th overall.
Following him will be freshman Tim
McKenney, who finished in a tie for 24th in his
Sophomore Toby Ragland will be next, look-
ing to improve after a rough tournament where
he finished in a tie for 56th.
Rounding out the lineup will be freshman
Tyson Alexander, who last saw action on March
11th, when he finished in a tie for 61st.
"This is a very capable team, and they're anx-
ious to get on the course right now," Alexander
said. "There will be some ups and downs this
weekend, but that's what you get with a young
team. We'll be looking for guys to cover for their
teammates when things are going tough, but the
key is to be able to count four low numbers each

"We've been very comfortable at the plate,"
Walton said. "When you're scoring four, five
runs a game with our defense, that's why we've
won 14 of our past 18, 19 games."

The Gators do not have the big bats of
Kristen Butler and Lindsey Cameron they had
last season, but it's been very solid across the
board with the hitting.
It's Walton's growth as a coach during the
past five years that helped key the swift turn-
"I've learned from my mistakes, my play-
ers, my administration and my staff," he said.

Tampa Bay fans are drool-
ing about rumors that wide re-
ceiver Calvin Johnson could be a
Buccaneer next season. Raiders
fans must be salivating at the
thought that they may actually
have a real quarterback this year.
But what is going to change
between April 1 and April 21 that
makes it necessary to be talking
about this until the week leading
up to the draft?
Players' supposed draft status-
es have. been yo-yoing aimlessly
about since well after the college
football season and even after the
combine. Now the big news is that
a few of the projected top picks

exciting, has become flat out ri-
diculous. It has gotten to the point
where unproven rookies are being
