STUDENT GOVERNMENT


SG online voting shot down

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer

The UF Supreme Court announced
Tuesday night that an online voting
system in Student Government elec-
tions would be unconstitutional.
At a Student Senate meeting, Brian
Aungst, the court's chief justice, said
online voting would interfere with SG's
ability to prevent voter coercion.
But members of Students for Online
Voting, known as SOLVe, said their
battle isn't over, and they would now
appeal to UF administrators to make
online voting a reality.
About 40 students rallied outside
Pugh Hall before the Senate meeting
with signs promoting online voting.
After the rally was moved indoors due
to pounding rain, the protesters took
up the first three rows of seats in the
meeting.
Sen. Benjamin Cavataro, who repre-
sents Hume Hall, motioned to hear the
court's decision so senators and visitors
could discuss it, but his suggestion was
denied by a 55-2 vote.
SOLVe inembers and supporters said
they were disappointed that they didn't
have the opportunity to ask questions
about the decision after it was an-
nounced.
Sen. Michael Ramsey was explained
why he voted "nay" to deny the discus-
sion time.
"I come from a farm background,
and they really like horses, and one
of the things they say a lot is 'nay',"

Woman in financial trouble blunders bank robbery


* 55-YEAR-OLD TRIES TO ROB BANK
BUT FORGETS TO WEAR MASK.

Betty Gail Hudson's attempt to solve her
"urgent personal financial problems" ended
in handcuffs and a felony charge Tuesday
evening, after the 55-year-old's planned bank
heist was foiled; according to a Gainesville
Police Department arrest report.
Hudson, who had no prior criminal his-
tory, entered the Wachovia bank at 6301 W


Newberry Road around 3 p.m. with a loaded
.38-caliber revolver, a black duffle bag and a
mask, said GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg.
However, Kameg said, she forgot to pull
the mask over her head.
"She was very nervous," he said. "It was
obvious she has never done this before."
But her exposed face was only the first
hitch in Hudson's plan.
When she pointed the gun at a teller and
demanded money, Hudson did not know
she was standing next to customer Lawrence


D. Perez, an off-duty law enforcement officer
who was carrying a gun of his own.
Perez pointed his gun at Hudson, ordering
her to drop her weapon, Kameg
Local said.
News She complied, got on the
ground and waited for GPD
officers to arrive.
"As soon as he saw what was going on, he
confronted her and it was done," Kameg said.
The bank was full of customers at the time
of the incident, he added.


After she was arrested, Hudson told police
she tried to rob the bank because she was un-
der severe personal financial hardship, accord-
ing to her arrest report.
She was charged with attempted robbery
with a firearm, a felony offense, the report
stated.
"Financial hardship or not, you still can't
do this," Kameg said. "You can't take a gun
into a bank and expect good things to hap-
pen."

UF to spend


more of its


endowment

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

The UF Foundation will release an extra $2.4
million in endowment funds this March to help
UF cope with a budget crisis.
Earlier this month, the foundation's finance
committee approved increasing the spending
bases of all endowment funds that were received
starting Jan. 1.
The "spending base"
UF is a percentage of an en-
Administration dowment before it's in-
vested, explained Leslie
Bram, associate vice president of the foundation
that oversees UF fundraising.
The spending bases for some of UF's existing
endowments formerly hovered at about 85 per-
cent of the original gift value, Bram said.
The committee's action increases the spend-
able bases of those existing endowments by
about 5 percent, she said.
Several U.S. congressmen have clamored
this year for universities to spend more of their
endowments, focusing on increasing available
financial aid.
Bram said the increase will generate about
$2.4 million in spendable income, but that mon-
ey will be spread across the university depend-
ing on which endowment it comes from.
Every UF endowment is restricted by the

Community-based building blossoming in Gainesville


By JESSICA WARSHAVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gainesville is seeing a revival of com-
munity-based neighborhoods due to New
Urbanism, a development philosophy that
creates sustainable communities that are
walkable distances to shops, schools and
jobs.
The construction movement is modeled
after traditional neighborhoods.
In recent years, several communi-
ties have popped up around Gainesville
sporting New Urbanist architecture and
planning, according to David Coffey, a
land-use attorney and former mayor of
Gainesville.
"Haile Village Center and Plantation is
an excellent example of the proper execu-
tion of New Urbanism," Coffey said.
To build a New Urbanist structure, all
the essential elements must be present,
such as the right placement of the building
in relation to the street and enough space
for pedestrians, he said.
Although there are not many examples
of New Urbanist structures in Gainesville,
a lot of the development is moving in that
direction, Coffey said.
The movement helps the environment,
he said, but the structures differ somewhat


from green buildings. Urbanist buildings are more concerned
Green structures relate to the types of with proximity to jobs and services to cut
materials used in construction, while New down driving, Coffey said.


Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff
Construction workers watch their co-workers at the Brytan residential community,
comprised of energy-efficient homes, off Southwest 75th Street and Archer Road.


"There's no question it creates the op-
portunity for more energy-efficient life-
styles," he said.
A healthier environment is not the
only benefit of adopting this construction
style, said Michael Conroy, principal of
Lionshead Investment Group.
His business follows the philosophy in
its projects.
The developments are pedestrian-
friendly, ecologically sound, extremely
convenient and promote a closer commu-
nity, Conroy said.
"Intrinsic to New Urbanism is the
concept of mixed use and the concept of
people living and working and shopping
and being entertained all in the same
area," he said.
One of Lionshead's newest projects,
LionsGate Condominiums, currently be-
ing built at 1500 NW Fourth Ave., will be a
New Urbanist structure in terms of archi-
tecture but not function, he said.
However, the building's proximity to
campus reflects the movement.
"People want to be where the action is,
and they don't want to be in cars as much
as they did 40 years ago," Conroy said.
"They want to be in a walkable envi-
ronment, which is what New Urbanism
promotes."


UF offers new program to help students quit smoking


* PROGRAM GIVING
DISCOUNTS ON MEDS.

For students trying to quit
smoking, UF is offering a new pro-
gram to help them kick the habit.
The QUIT Program, which be-
gan Feb. 4, is available for students
who smoke 10 or more cigarettes


daily and are registered for spring
2008.
Jane Emmeree, a health edu-
cator at GatorWell and program
coordinator, said the program pro-
vides discounted smoking cessa-
tion medication, medical screening
and behavioral coaching.
The Health Education Center
allocated $20,000 to the Student


Health Care Center to start the
program.
The funding could last until the
end of June depend-
On ing on how many stu-
Campus dents take advantage
of the opportunity,
Emmeree said.
Most of the funding goes to-
ward the discounted smoking ces-


station medications, which include
Chantix, Bupropion and nicotine
patches.
Each student enrolled in the
program is allowed a discount
of $50 a month for three months,
Emmeree said.
Without the discount, the costs
of the medications range from
about $30 to $100.


The program also offers coun-
seling and one-on-one coaching
to encourage behavior-modifying
strategies.
"Some people think it's a magic
pill that you can take and you're
crave free, but in reality the psy-
chological part has a lot to do with
it too," she said.

UF says nuclear reactor safe


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org
Although Congress recently
denounced a report that down-
played the risk of a terrorist attack
on college campuses' nuclear re-
search reactors, some UF scientists
disagree with lawmakers.
Federal auditors wrote that the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
which regulates commercial
nuclear power plants nationwide,
contradicted expert opinions and
belittled terrorist threats posed
on campus reactors in its report,
according to the U.S. Government
Accountability Office.
One of the concerns was that
many reactors still run on en-
riched uranium, which could be
converted into fuel for an atomic
bomb.
But Alireza Haghighat, chair-
man of UF's nuclear and radiolog-
ical engineering department, said
UF converted its nuclear reactor's
fuel from highly enriched ura-


nium to low-enriched uranium in
September 2006.
Haghighat said it's nearly im-
possible to create an atomic bomb
with low-enriched uranium.
Nevertheless, he said the
nuclear engineering department
implemented extra security mea-
sures following Sept. 11, but he
wouldn't reveal details for safety
reasons.
"There's no such thing as
impossible, but it's close
to impossible."
Allreza Haghighat
chairman of UF's nuclear
and radiological engineering
department

Despite the department's as-
sertion of its security, a 2005 ABC
News report noted the apparent
lack of security surrounding the
reactors at UF and on other cam-
puses.
According to the report, stu-


dents who gained access to UF's
reactor were able to carry large
bags inside the building without
being searched.
The report also noted that UF
did not utilize guards, metal de-
tectors or background checking.
However, Haghighat said
ABC's report was misleading.
There are several layers of pro-
tection surrounding the reactor,
he said, including three doors that
can only be opened with a key.
Furthermore, the reactor is lo-
cated under 50 tons of concrete, he
said. The probability of a terrorist
taking fuel from the reactor to
create a bomb is highly unlikely,
Haghighat said.
"There's no such thing as im-
possible, but it's close to impos-
sible," he said.
William Vernetson, director
of UF's reactor, said the reactor's
small size also makes it difficult
for it to pose any serious danger.
Vernetson said that UF has al-
ways taken security for its nuclear
reactor seriously.


Improv group to


auction off dates


Theatre Strike Force, UF's
improvisation troupe, plans
to auction off dates with some
members of its Relay For Life
team Wednesday night.
The auction will be held
at Coconut's Comedy Club
in the Clarion Gainesville
Hotel & Conference Center on
Newberry Road from 9 p.m. to
11 p.m. Fifteen members will be
auctioned off, and all bids will
start at $5.
Catherine Alford, TSF's
philanthropy chairwoman and
Relay team captain, began the
group's involvement with the
fundraiser in 2005 after losing a
family friend to cancer. In 2007,
the team auctioned off 12 mem-
bers for a total of $600.
"It is our biggest team yet,


and we can't wait to raise a lot
of money," Alford said of this
year's auction.
Relay For Life is the
American Cancer Society's in-
ternational
Around fundraiser.
Gainesville All pro-
ceeds from
the date auction will go to the
society.
Torey Greenwald, a member
up for auction, plans to "ridicu-
lously spoil" her highest bidder,
promising intellectual conver-
sation and cheesecake.
"No matter who it is, they
deserve it," Greenwald said.
"They're helping find a cure for
cancer. That's a pretty worthy
cause."

Students join drive to increase public service funding


By MARY KATHERINE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two UF students will attempt
to collect student signatures as
part of a national campaign to
influence the 2008 presidential
candidates' platforms to include
increased funding for public ser-
vice organizations.
The Student Campaign for
Public Service's goal is to present
the petition with 50,000 student
signatures to the candidates in
April, according to the petition.
It addresses the increased num-
ber of students interested in public
service and the insufficient funds
that are preventing them from par-
ticipating in these programs.
The nonprofit group took on


the feat of collecting signatures
to spread awareness and interest
among college students in public
service organizations and make
them a higher priority for lawmak-
ers.
So far, more than 20 universi-
ties have pledged to collect sig-
natures to show the concern for
government-sponsored programs,
Nathalie Sosa said.
Sosa, a psychology senior, and
Leah Dietterle, an English senior,
both serve as communication per-
sonnel for the organization and
hope their signature-collecting at
UF will significantly impact the
campaign.
The standard political platforms
are of concern to voters, but Sosa
questions candidates' positions


and policies in service-oriented
programs.
"People pay attention to where
candidates stand on other issues,
but how do they support public
service?" Sosa said.

"You don't have to go very
far to see poverty."
Nathalle Sosa
UF student

Sosa and Dietterle recently be-
gan their quest for signatures on
campus by targeting larger groups
such as Greek chapters, multi-
cultural organizations and other
community service organizations,
Sosa said.
The petition encourages 1,000


signatures from each university.
Students have been very recep-
tive to the cause and are willing
to help, Sosa said, and she's confi-
dent they'll have a high number of
signatures.
After graduation, Dietterle and
Sosa will enter Teach For America,
a program included in the petition
that sends recent college gradu-
ates to teach in lower-performing
schools.
"You don't have to go very
far to see poverty," Sosa said.
"Students are great sources to
make an impact."
Amy Panikowski, UF's campus
Peace Corps recruiter, said she's
seen an increase in the number of
students interested in serving in
the Peace Corps, and the student


body has become much more con-
cerned with serving international-
ly. UF ranks first in Florida for the
amount of volunteers it produces
and 17th nationally, Panikowski
said.
Sara K. Hartmann, a history
senior, hopes this petition is a suc-
cess. She was also selected for the
Teach For America program, and
she's anxious for the end results,
she said.
"If nothing else, it gets people
talking about these organizations,"
Hartmann said.
During the next few weeks,
they will be collecting signatures
on Turlington Plaza and talking
to members of large, on-campus
organizations until the end of the
semester.


Before you sign, know the facts


UF Student Legal Services held a forum
Tuesday evening to inform students of
common problems tenants face. Here are a
few key tips to keep in mind before signing
a lease:

*Be wary of apartments under construction. If
the apartment is not ready come move-in time,
all the landlord legally has to do is not charge
rent. Some will place residents in hotels, but
this is a courtesy, not,a requirement.

*Take pictures before moving in and out. This
gives you documentation if a dispute arises.


*Ask residents about the apartment complex.
Ask about the landlord, maintenance and
reliability of the Internet.

*Be wary of signing joint leases. When you
do, everyone is held responsible for damage
or violations, regardless of who the guilty
party is.

*Landlords are trying to sell you something.
They may make the deal seem sweeter than
it is. If they promise new paint or new carpet,
get it in writing.


*Don't sign a lease without seeing an attorney.
Once you sign a lease, you do not have the
right to cancel it. There is no such thing as
a 24-hour cancellation policy. Attorneys at
Student Legal Services in the Reitz Union
will review leases for free if you make an

UF student starts


mobile ad business


* COMPANY DISPLAYS ADS
ON CARS' REAR-WINDOWS.

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A summer job washing airplanes
in high school was all it took for Jake
Rothstein to know he never wanted
to work under someone else's con-
trol again.
Rothstein, a UF sophomore, said
the only way to avoid that situation
was to start his own business.
The result was MobileGraphix
Inc., an advertising company that
charges local businesses to display
a logo across the rear-window of
hired drivers' cars.
Rothstein recruits young em-
ployees, typically students, to drive
the ad-adorned cars to and from
school and while running errands in
highly traveled areas in Gainesville.
The advertising sticker is a vinyl
adhesive material that still allows
the driver to see through the rear
windows.
The service starts at about $130
per car per month.
Rothstein said he has been ag-
gressively recruiting clients since


the business opened last week, but
the fliers, e-mails, phone calls and
door-to-door approaches have yet
to land him his first client.
"It's tough doing this by myself,"
he said. "But I think it's really going
to take off. It benefits local compa-
nies by giving them a cheaper form
of advertising and students who
want to make a little extra money
by just driving their car around."
Nandy Ferguson,
LOCal manager of the
News Florida Book Store
said she knows con-
sumers would see the
car advertisements, but she was not
sure they'd pay attention to them.
"People have become smarter
and more sophisticated shoppers,"
Ferguson said. "They know when a
gimmick is a gimmick, and this is a
gimmick."
Still, Rothstein continues to pur-
sue local bars, restaurants, attorneys
and any other businesses that might
be interested in MobileGraphix out
of the office located in his apart-
ment.
"All I need is one solid customer
who is happy with the service,"
Rothstein said. "After that, I know
it will build on itself."

Collision Course

Cameras won't solve

Gainesville's traffic woes
Picture may be worth a thousand words, but pretty
soon one in Gainesville might be worth $125.
The City Commission is set to review a proposal
that would allow the Gainesville Police Department to install
video cameras at busy intersections to help catch motorists
who run red lights.
Drivers caught on tape would get a $125 fine for vio-
lating a city ordinance drafted by the city's Public Safety
Committee, since photographic evidence is not enough to
issue a ticket for a moving violation.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said drivers who run
red lights can cause head-on or T-bone collisions, the most
fatal kind of car accidents.
While we're all for proactively preventing fatal traffic ac-
cidents with innovative ideas, we think that installing these
cameras is not a solution to the growing problem.
Under the guise of making the roads safer, the police de-
partment and safety committee are attempting to convince
the commission that the red-light cameras would make dan-
gerous intersections safer. The logic of less accidents equal
less fatalities does make sense. However, the cameras could
actually cause an entirely new type of accident.
When red-light cameras were installed in Washington,
D.C., in 1999, city officials praised their new method of cur-
tailing drivers who blatantly ignore traffic signals.
But an independent analysis of crash statistics by The
Washington Post six years later revealed that the number
of accidents at intersections with the cameras actually in-
creased.
Rear-end collisions - caused by drivers trying to avoid
getting a ticket in the mail by stopping short - more than
made up for the reduction in other accidents.
A safety evaluation of red-light cameras by the Federal
Highway Administration in 2005 confirmed the dangers of
the use of red-light cameras, stating that while right-angle
crashes decreased, rear-end collisions increased.
Eric Skrum, spokesman for the National Motorists
Association, said in an ABC News interview that the red-
light cameras just reward cities for bad engineering. ,
And maybe that's what the city of Gainesville is really
trying to achieve by proposing the camera installation - a
bigger reward for the bottom line.
Though the red-light cameras in Washington didn't do
much to stop accidents, they did generate more than $32 mil-
lion for the city from the more than 500,000 fines issued in
their first six years of operation.
While the city of Gainesville doesn't have nearly the same
amount of traffic as the D.C. area, any revenue is needed
revenue at this point.
We fear the improvements that could make the streets
safer in Gainesville would probably not even be considered
once the money starts rolling in.
Experts argue that elimination of unnecessary lights, traf-
fic-light synchronization and partial deactivation of other
traffic lights during periods of low traffic could do more to
decrease the number of drivers running red lights.
When properly done, the synchronization of traffic lights
can also decrease congestion and fuel consumption.
Once these red-light cameras start making money for the
city of Gainesville, the commission will probably not be open
to getting rid of a steady income source - especially in times
like these.
If safety really is the main concern here - though we sus-
pect it is not - the money spent on installing red-light cam-
eras could be better utilized if it was to go toward improving
intersections and solving the real source of Gainesville's traf-
fic problems - sloppy engineering.

Many pedophiles cannot be treated
Although Rebecca Bauman's column
sighting the need for rehabilitation for sex of-
fenders is respectable, she forgot to mention
the psychology behind these individuals.
While a "recovered" alcoholic cannot
consume alcohol, research has shown that a
past pedophile cannot be near children, as the
temptation is normally too great to resist.
As I understand it, all cases are like this.
Maybe offenders that have been abused
themselves can receive effective treatment. \
However, there are too many cases of
those who cannot recover to waste effort
into fixing these criminals and allowing them
near innocent children.
Instead, we should focus our efforts on
treating assaulted victims and preventing
the negative effects they have to cope with
later in life.
In this respect, we may also prevent them
from assaulting others eventually, as Bauman
suggests. In the meantime, I support any
town keeping these offenders away from
children, whatever their cause may be.

Memorial still needs to be respected
I am a huge proponent of freedom of
speech. I believe wholeheartedly that we
must allow people to voice their opinion,
even when I disagree with it to the greatest
extent.
However, something has finally crossed
the line of freedom of speech into the gray
area of outright disrespect.
Every day I drive north on 34th Street and
pass the long stretch of wall that has been
painted on for many years. I pass the wall's
most notorious panel, the memorial that
honors the five students who were murdered
by Danny Rolling almost two decades ago.
It also used to be the most respected panel,
never desecrated with birthday messages or
artists' signatures, but this has now changed.
It seems that nowadays someone feels
that his or her name is more- important than
the five students who had their futures stolen
from them in such a horrific way.
We must continue the tradition of hav-
ing respect for the situations that deserve
as much. If our generation wants to say
anything about our character, we'll do it by
not saying it over the memorial on the 34th
Street Wall.

Choice of friends is based on comfort
In response to Monday's letter from
Danielle Emenhiser, segregation is a part of
nature - cows in herds, birds in flocks, fish
in schools and humans in cliques, clubs and
organizations.
Whatever you want to call the phenom-
enon, it is nature's way of protecting us,
though from what is anyone's guess.
The way we are grouped shouldn't have
any significance.
If someone is more comfortable with
people of his or her own culture or religion or
major, why does it matter to you?
If I choose to stay inside a close-knit group
of people, that doesn't mean I look down on
others or seek to avoid them.
It just means I'm choosing to be around
people I feel comfortable with and want to
be around.
Why is it we feel the need to force every-
one to be friendly and mix together?
Making people interact with people of dif-
ferent groups is just as bad as making them
stay with their own race.
Let them choose who their friends are.

Religions should evolve with science
In response to "Board evaluating evolu-
tion," I would like to urge all religious con-
servatives to allow for the evolution of their
religions.
There is more evidence for evolution than
there is for creationism, which, frankly, is
only hearsay.
Let's face it - the world changes, technol-
ogy changes, science changes and, as such,
religion should develop.
I don't understand how someone adapts
to the changing world and simultaneously
refuses to add to his or her religious beliefs. A
belief in evolution shouldn't negate God.
It took long enough for the church to ac-
cept that the world isn't flat, but it finally
came around, didn't it?
There are schools that have a religious as-
sociation.
It is in those schools - and those only
- that creationism or other religious theories
should be taught.
By teaching creationism, you are also
enforcing the Bible, which should never be
applied to a public scenario for purposes of
freedom of religion.

County breaks ground for first 'green' fire station


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Alachua County could get its
first nationally certified "green" fire
station by about February 2009.
Officials broke ground Tuesday
on the new environmentally
friendly station, which will re-
place Jonesville Fire Station #17 on
Northwest 143rd Street.
The station is being built on the
north end of the Jonesville Park
Complex soccer field.
The 6,000-square foot build-
ing will be certified by the United
States Green Building Council for
meeting its Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design guide-
lines, said Charlie Jackson, county
facilities manager.
The station is expected to cost
$2.9 million. Jackson said construc-
tion of a LEED building costs about
the same as an ordinary building
and saves tax payers money in the
long run by lowering utility bills.
"Building green simply makes
sense," he said.
The building will have energy-
efficient heating, ventilation and
air conditioning systems,he said.
Native landscaping and devices
like water-free urinals will cut back
on the facility's water use.
The location is accessible by al-
ternative transportation like buses
and bicycles, he said.


The station will also have a
garage to house four emergency
vehicles that currently get parked


outside. Alachua County Fire
Chief Will May said indoor park-
ing would make the vehicles last


longer.
Even construction materials will
be recycled, Jackson said, and build-

ers will use carpeting and paint that
give off low fume emissions.
Meeting the LEED guidelines
will earn the station a plaque on
the wall when it's finished, Jackson
said.
May said the new station will be
necessary as the population served
by Jonesville Fire Station No. 17
increases.
The original Jonesville station
was established in October 1986 in
a mobile home, May said.
Though it was replaced in the
mid-90s by a pre-fabricated build-
ing, firefighters still needed to
evacuate during hurricane and
tornado warnings.
That will not be an issue with
the new building, May said.
"It will be that emergency sta-
tion that's still standing no matter
what happens," he said.
The station will also have more
living and work space for the five
firefighters on the clock at any
given time, May said.
The station will be the county's
second green-certified building.
The first was the Alachua County
Criminal Courthouse, which
was built in 2003 in downtown
Gainesville.
Jackson said he would like to
pass legislation to require all coun-
ty buildings - new and old - to fit
government green guidelines.
"We're thinking green, we're
building green and we will main-
tain green," he said.


Orange and Blue announces SG elections platform


* PARTY FOCUSES ON ONLINE
VOTING, SG SPENDING.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org ,

The Orange and Blue Party released its
platform Tuesday in preparation for Student
Government spring elections Feb. 26 and 27.
The party's main goals involve online SG


voting with students' GatorLink accounts
and reducing the amount of money SG "lav-
ishly" spends on items for its top-ranked of-
ficials, such as $45,000 for phones, said Mark
McShera, chairman of Orange and Blue.
"We just think that there are a lot better
ways to spend $50,000 than on BlackBerries,"
McShera said.
He said the money saved by cutting back
on waste, which he said also includes SG
advertising, new office furniture and other
mismanaged funds, would aid student orga-


nizations facing trimmed budgets.
Orange and Blue also opposes awarding
bonuses to UF administrators during times of
budget crisis, he said.
Student UF President Bernie
Government Machen received a
nearly $300,000 bonus in
December. McShera said most of the goals are
financially achievable and could be completed
in one semester if his party wins.
Another Orange and Blue plan is to replace
UF's current WebMail system with Google's


Gmail, which would provide a free e-mail
service tailor-made for UF, he said.
The Gator Party, Orange and Blue's opposi-
tion, also promised to reform WebMail in its
platform released Monday.
A section of the Orange and Blue Party's
Web site, which operates like a Wikipedia
entry that anyone can edit, helped the party
determine the platform's points. He said the
idea to ask administrators to observe the day
before Thanksgiving as a "Travel Day" came
from students' submissions.

Circle o Ud


Couple looks back on UF days


By LINDSEY ROBINSON
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Anil Rajvanshi first met
Nandini Nimbkar back in 1975 at
UF, it was love at first sight.
Sort of.
"I'm sure there was an instanta-
neous chemistry," Anil said.
For Nandini, sparks didn't fly so
quickly
"I didn't really feel it," Nandini
said.
She would soon enough. Over
the next several months, Anil invit-
ed her over to his dorm for countless
dinners.
Their friendship blossomed into
romance.
On Dec. 12, 1976, the couple
was married at a friend's home
in Gainesville, with a handful of
classmates and cose friends as wit-
nesses.
After nearly 31 years of mar-
riage, two daughters and a lifetime
devoted to India's renewable energy
resources, Anil and Nandini haven't
forgotten the role UF played.
In 2005 their oldest daughter,
Noorie, left India for the first time
in her life to study mechanical en-
gineering at UF, the same field her
father pursued 30 years ago.
"We are the Gator family," the 25-
year-old graduate student said.

How they met-
Before Anil met Nandini, and
before Noorie was even a glimmer
of a thought, Anil remembers when
he first arrived in the U.S.
When the young student landed
in New York City just before New
Year's Eve for a layover, he saw what
seemed like an entire city "kissing in


the streets." Traditionally in India,
such public displays of affection are
traditionally uncommon.
For Anil, who had no idea what
life at UF would be like, the culture
shock hit him head-on.
"It was a very different world
altogether at that time," he said.
And Anil's mind was on higher
education, not love - until he met
his future wife.
Nandini, an agronomy student
who was originally born in the U.S.,
had lived most of her life in western
India, where a phone call meant
traveling more than 60 miles away
from home.
When Anil first spotted Nandini
in the Reitz-Union food court, he
noticed that she was nearly four
inches taller than him and looked so
thin she seemed "one-dimensional,"
Anil said.
"I thought maybe she didn't get
enough to eat," he said.
After the two fell in love, neither
wanted to go back to India to get
married.
"I never really wanted a tradi-
tional marriage with pomp and
ceremony," Nandini said.
A conventional Hindu wedding
would have lasted several days
and included an endless number of
friends and relatives, she said.
Instead, the couple gathered
about 10 classmates and friends and
convinced a local priest to include
Hindu readings into the ceremony.
When they had their wedding
photos taken, Anil remembers, the
photographer insisted that Nandini
sit and Anil stand behind her so that
their height difference wouldn't be
as obvious.
Nandini kept her maiden name
after they got married - in tradi-

tional Indian culture, the wife's first
and last name change when she
weds, Anil explained.
"It was really revolutionary at
that time," he said of Nandini's
choice to keep her name.

From UF to India - and
back again
After finishing school at UF, Anil
and Nandini went back to India
determined to put their knowledge
to work.
Together the couple began run-
ning the Nimbkar Agricultural
Research Institute (NARI) in
Maharashtra, India. It was started
by Nandini's father in 1968.
As the institute started to flour-
ish, Anil spent his time studying
renewable energy sources, while
Nandini focused on efficient crop
production.
At that time, jobs in India for
college graduates were virtually
nonexistent.
"Without madness, you can't
make such decisions," Anil said of
leaving the U.S. to work in India.
Meanwhile, Noorie and her
younger sister Madhura spent most
of their childhood without a TV in
the house.
Instead, Anil and Nandini
splurged on subscriptions to scien-
tific journals, which their daughters


saw them studying every night.
As a result, Noorie and Madhura
loved to read and hated to miss
school, Noorie said.
When Noorie first came to UF
in 2005, her father showed her a
plaque in front of the University
Auditorium, where her mother's
name is engraved.
In 1997, Nandini was recognized
as one of 47 outstanding female
alumnae chosen in honor of the 5011
anniversary of coeducation at UF.
She is the only Indian on the
plaque.
As a new student, Noorie found
herself surrounded by an extended
family of her parents' former class-
mates.
One of those classmates is the
assistant vice president of research
for the University of Central Florida
Pallavoor N. Vaidyanathan.
Vaidyanathan, whom Noorie
calls "uncle," is currently in
Gainesville working on a project in
research administration.
Vaidyanathan remembers many
of the 100 Indian students who were
at UF back when Anil and Nandini
first met.
He can rattle off a list of his
former classmates and where they
settled in the U.S.
But Anil and Nandini are the
only students he can remember who


had the chance to go back to their
home country right after school, he
said.
"Philosophically, they were
kind of made for each other,"
Vaidyanathan said.

Partners in love, business
Anil and Nandini still run NARI,
where they focus on improving life
for India's rural communities. He is
the director and she is the president.
Through improvements to cook-
ing and lighting, the couple is work-
ing to close the gap between India's
rural and urban societies.
"Since they work together, they
spend, like, the whole day together,"
Noorie said.
Anil's accomplishments through
the couple's institute include an
energy-efficient lantern, which he
named "Noorie."
The couple's work includes the
development of a hardy hybrid of
sweet sorghum called "Madhura,"
after the couple's younger daughter,
used to produce ethanol.
But despite the couple's love of
education, research and improving
India's resources, their primary de-
votion is to each other.
"Without commitment, there is
no relationship. Without commit-
ment, there is nothing in life," Anil
said.









12, ALLIGATOR N WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2008


Online voting found unconstitutional


SENATE, from page 1


Ramsey said. "So that's my logic."
Benjamin Dictor, an online voting ad-
vocate and a political science junior, said
senators laughed at SOLVe's efforts.
During the public debate, Dictor told
senators that if students can't vote for
online voting in February, SOLVe would
find a way to make the decision available
in the next election.
"The fact of the matter is, this would
double voter turnout, and you know this
very well - very few of you would be sit-
ting here," he said.
Proponents of online SG voting assert
that because it would mobilize a higher
number and a more diverse group of vot-
ers, parties typically filled with Greek can-
didates.would cease to dominate.
Frank Bracco, Chomp the Vote director
and Orange and Blue Party candidate for
Student Body vice president, told senators
that the 5,683 students who signed a peti-
tion to put an online-voting amendment
on the SG ballot for elections Feb. 26 and
27 would be disappointed.
"If five individuals can tell 5,700 stu-
dents their voices do not matter, then
something is wrong with this university,"
Bracco said.
Tommy Jardon, a law student and
SOLVe president, said the court had no
reason to call the amendment unconsti-
tutional.
"Everything about this was just an
act," Jardon said. "The hearing, every-


thing. The court is clearly biased."
He said Aungst couldn't have been im-
partial because he argued against online
voting in 2006 when the court also ruled
it unconstitutional because of voter-coer-
cion fears.
Sam Miorelli, SOLVe's executive direc-
tor and a mechanical engineering junior,
called the court's decision "highly politi-
cized."
"There's no room for politics in
Supreme Court decisions," Miorelli said.
SG online voting was first proposed in
2004.
In 2005, students collected enough
signatures -2 percent
Governmen t of the Student Body
- to have an online
voting option during
elections.
The UF court ruled the petition uncon-
stitutional in 2006.
This time, SOLVe tried to make online
voting mandatory, which required a peti-
tion signed by 10 percent of the student
body.
This is the first time in UF's history an
amendment by petition has gotten this far,
said Sarah Krantz, SG supervisor of elec-
tions. Before Aungst finished reading the
decision, online voting supporters walked
out of the room. Dictor was one of the stu-
dents leading the crowd.
"We will not yield until the administra-
tion amends the atrocity that has occurred
in this hall tonight," Dictor said. "These
halls will not rest until we have online
voting."

Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF Student Supreme Court Chief Justice Brian Aungst presents the court's brief on the
online voting issue at the Student Senate meeting in Pugh Hall Tuesday night.


Congressmen have called for universities to spend more of their endowments


UFF, from page 1


donor's wishes, she said. She said
most of the funds are designated for
faculty positions and research, while
26 percent of the funds provide for
student financial aid.
Bram said the committee made
the change because UF was experi-
encing profitable investment returns
on its endowments, and a univer-
sity-wide budget crisis created a
















eveyoe soud kow


strong need for more money.
After cutting $34 million from its
budget last semester, UF will have to
trim an extra $16 million this semes-
ter, bringing the total budget cuts for
this fiscal year to about $50 million.
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman,
said UF still isn't sure how it's going
to make the cuts, which stem from
state revenue shortfalls.
Although the $2.4 million is
earmarked for certain areas, Bramn
said the extra money would help


"It's more like swapping
dollars out. It will definitely
help. There's no question."
Leslie Bram
UF Foundation associate
vice president

UF cope with budget cuts because
it would free up general university
dollars for other expenses.
Money that would otherwise


fund the areas now covered by
endowments could be put toward
other purposes or cut from the bud-
get, she said.
"It's more like swapping dollars
out," she said. "It will definitely
help. There's no question." Brami
said it's not uncommon for the foun-
dation to approve a special increase
like this. As the market fluctuates,
the endowment spending base
changes, and every so often, the
finance committee steps in to return


the spending base to an appropriate
level, she said.
At the same meeting, the finance
committee also approved a decrease
in the administrative fee for endow-
ment funds.
Bram said this change was en-
acted after conversations with all
UF deans. The fee change impacts
the foundation more than it does
the rest of the university because the
foundation is funded through these
payments, she said.

UF faces LSU team still reeling from coach's firing


LSU basketball coach John Brady pauses during a news conference in Baton Rouge, La. Brady was fired
as the Tigers' coach Friday with his team struggling at 8-13 at the time.


* THE GATORS HOST THE
TIGERS AT 8 P.M.

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

It would be hard to imagine
things getting any worse for LSU.
For a program just two years re-
moved from the NCAA Final Four,
the Tigers (8-14, 1-7 Southeastern
Conference) have fallen into a sud-
den firestorm of failure, criticism
and calamity
The Tigers, after beginning the
season 7-4, dropped nine of their
next 10 games, which led to the
dismissal of long-time head coach
John Brady.
Brady was reportedly asked to
resign by Athletics Director Skip
Bertman but refused and was let
go after the team's 81-72 loss to
Alabama.
In his farewell news conference,
the third-winningest head coach
in the school's history had trouble
holding back tears as he recounted
a career highlighted by shaping
lives and turning around a program
mired in NCAA violations.
Brady's 11-year tenure included


two first-place finishes in the SEC to
go along with a Final Four appear-
ance in 2006 and a record of 192-139
overall.
The sudden firing, of Brady
midseason has created a plethora
of questions and angry retorts by
his peers.
After LSU's 47-45 loss to No. 4
Tennessee, Volunteers head coach
Bruce Pearl called the move "em-
barrassing" and "scary," according
to ESPN.
After UF's win against Georgia
at home this past Saturday, UF
coach Billy Donovan chimed in on
the situation.
"I saw a comment that said
he didn't win enough games,"
Donovan said. "I believe it's deeper
than that. I'm not there to be able to
pass any judgment. But I think a lot
of times for people on the outside
looking in, sometimes there's more
that's maybe going on there than
maybe you realize."
The problem for LSU at this point
is broader than its head coach.
The Tigers find themselves half-
way through a season that can't
end soon enough. LSU is trying to
salvage its turbulent season and will
SEE HOOPS PAGE 24


On National Signing Day, report-
ers and television crews flocked
to Jeannette (Pa.) High to catch
the biggest news of the day.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, the
nation's consensus No. 1 prospect, was
ready to choose his college. He held a
news conference in the school's gymna-
sium and made his bigannouncement:
He was going to take more visits.
Having decided that he hadn't given
Penn State and Oregon enough of a look
in comparison to his other finalists,
Michigan and Ohio State, Pryor put his
decision off until an unknown time.
That's all fine for Pryor, who said the

Guard hopes to play Thurs.

Count Sha Brooks among those who
hope Lonnika Thompson will make it back
into the lineup Thursday.
Brooks was forced to start at point guard
and admitted to being nervous before
Sunday's loss at Mississippi State. The ju-
nior committed eight turnovers against the
Bulldogs.
"Your point guard determines how your
team is going to play," Brooks said. "If your
point guard is nervous, it's going to affect
the rest of your team on the court. If I can
try not to be nervous and limit some of my
turnovers, then we'll be fine."
Senior guard Depree Bowden saw the
effect on Brooks' game as well.
"[Brooks] wasn't in a position to really
score like she normally is," Bowden said.
"But we gotta learn to play through adver-
sity, and if that means Lonnika's out, then
we gotta find a way to win."
Thompson did not play Sunday due to
a shoulder sprain she suffered Thursday
against Auburn.
She said she stuck out her hand chasing

Pryor's delay hurts recruiting

She wakes up every day having finally ar-
rived, but it wasn't always this way.
She comes to the ballpark knowing there's
a place in the lineup card where her number,
name and position will be penciled in.
No. 23. Mary Ratliff. RF.
For two long years, she was unsure if she
would ever get to fulfill the role on the team
she always thought would be hers. An injury,
position change and coaching switch later, she
earned the right to start for the UF softball
team.
And in this, her final season as a Gator,
the team's lone battle-tested senior leader is
primed to leave her mark on the program - a
program that she has given everything she
has, both in and out of the batter's box.

Just One of the Guys
Ratliff grew up in the small town of Mount
Sterling, Ky. It was in that little rural town of
just less than 6,000 that Ratliff learned to play
a number of sports, but her passion for one in
particular stood out above the rest.
"I grew up playing baseball. It was base-
ball, baseball, baseball," she said.
Ratliff thought she was going to be a base-
ball lifer, and her older brother, former UF

LATE BLOOMER


swimmer Will Ratliff, saw no reason not to
believe her.
"Not only was she a girl playing baseball,
but she was a hardcore tomboy," he said. "She
even looked like a boy. She had her hair cut
really short, and sometimes she was mistaken
for a boy."
Ratliff was considered one of the guys, so
much so that Will and his friends affection-
ately gave her the nickname "Gary" when
addressing her.
"She was the poster child for tomboy-
ness," said Will, who is now attending dental
school at Kentucky.
Ratliff's neighbor, Bart Rison, was the
Montgomery County High softball coach, and
it wasn't until he urged her to come out for the
high school varsity team that she reluctantly
gave the sport a shot. Once Ratliff hit sixth
grade, she grew her hair out and tried softball
- shedding her one-of-the-guys image.
"Originally I said, 'No, I don't want to play
softball. Girls who play softball are stupid,'"
she said.
After her first year on the varsity team
- barely removed from elementary school -
Ratliff developed a passion that made her for-
get all about baseball. As she transitioned into
high school, it was softball and the Bluegrass
State's favorite sport that dominated her life.
"I'm from Kentucky, and basketball is the
king of Kentucky," she said.

Right fielder Mary Ratliff, UF's only senior, took a winding path to becoming a leader
both on and off the field for the No. 13 Gators.


Ratliff leads freshman-laden team


She starred on the varsity basketball team
all four years in high school, leading the team
in assists each season.
"There was a long time when I thought
basketball was going to be my sport."

Orange and Bluegrass
Yet after her sophomore year in high
school, Ratliff made the decision that softball,
the sport she was so weary of, would be her
ticket to playing college sports.
"I'm really glad I made the switch," she
admitted..
Ratliff went on to earn the 2004 3A
Kentucky High School Athletics Association
and Kentucky Prep Softball player of the year
awards in her senior season at Montgomery.
While her high school career was coming
to a dose, playing competitive softball was far
from over. Ratliff had been good enough in
high school to warrant opportunities to play
at major universities throughout the south,
but in the end, there was really only one school
that made sense to her.
"The big selling point was my brother
Will," she said.
Will is three years older than Mary, and
together they are the second and third of
the four Ratliff children. Will said he didn't
have to say much to Mary to convince her to
become a Gator. She had taken visits to the
school with her parents and saw how much
fun Will was having.
So Ratliff chose UF instead of schools such
as South Carolina and Auburn.

Underwhelming Undergrad
Gainesville was a change of pace for the
small-town girl.
._"Gainesville to me is big city," she said.
"My town, I think in the city limits, we have
five- or six-thousand people that live there. So
I tell them all the time, Gainesville is big city."
Despite the contrast in scenery, she adapted
well to her new off-the-field environment, but
it wasn't long until she suffered her first set-
back on the diamond.
"The first month of school I was messing
around in the outfield, and I dove for a ball
during batting practice," she said. "I broke my
middle finger in eight places, and I had to get a
metal plate and some screws put in."
Ratliff described an average day during the
next couple of months as showing up at prac-
tice, shagging some balls in the outfield and
then heading to rehab, which she attended
about three times a week, for an hour or two.
"Slow."
That's the one word Ratliff used to describe
the frustrating process of coming back from
a debilitating injury. She hit .225 in 71 at-bats
through the course of 53 games in her fresh-
man and sophomore years combined, ap-
pearing almost exclusively in substitute and
designated hitting opportunities.
"I think when you come in, everybody ex-
pects to play everyday," she said.
For evidence of her lack of playing time,
look no further than her fielding percentage
for her first two seasons as a Gator - .000.
To take that percentage as an inference that
Ratliff is an incapable defensive player would
be incorrect, to say the least.
In fact, using any statistics from Ratliff's
first two years in Gainesville would leave one
ill-prepared to comprehend the transforma-
tion she would make in her junior season.

Breaking Through
Ratliff came back motivated in 2007 for her
third season at UF.
A lifetime signal caller, she entered college
with the idea of being behind the mask for
four years.
"Coming in, I was a catcher," she said. "I
was pretty convinced that was where I had to
play."
Her opportunity, however, came in right


field. In 64 games, she hit .280, drove in 28
runs, scored 21 times and added five home
runs - the first five home runs of her career.
"If you can hit, they'll find a place for you,"
she said.
In addition to productive offensive num-
bers, Ratliff posted a statistic that is the epito-
me of the expression, "coming full circle."
The player who sparingly found thpreen
grass in right field of Pressly Stadiumher first
two years became one of only two Gators to
have a perfect 1.000 fielding;percentage.
"It felt good. I don't know how to describe
the feeling," she said. "Coming to the ballpark
every day knowing that you're going to play,
you're going to get a chance, I think that's just
what everyone wants."
The transformation didn't stop there.
Her sophomore season, she moved into a
house with Will, another softball player, a track
athlete and three other swimmers. During that
time, Will recalls an instance when Mary came
home crying one night.
"I've only ever seen her cry a couple of
times," he said. "She's not a very emotional
person."
But the pressures of living up to her expec-
tations, and the feeling that then-new coach
Tim Walton didn't want her, were enough to
break down the normally even-keeled Ratliff.
"She was going through the don't-know-if-
you're-good-enough kind of thing," Will said.
It seems silly now to look back and think a
coach who describes his only senior as "some-
one everyone enjoys, funny, into the game,
and smart on and off the field" would rather
not have her around. Ratliff's relationship
with Walton has come just as far as any part of
her game during their time together at UF
"When he first came in my sophomore
year, I didn't understand everything he would
say," she said. "Now, I know exactly what he's
going to do all the time, and it's kind of scary
in a way, makes you feel a little crazy�l-
With Walton looking to Ratliff - who he
says is a coach on and off the field - to guide a
talented young group, the player who saw the
field for only innings at a time is now counted
on for the value of her experience.
It's a role Ratliff embraces.
"I feel like I can kind of mentor them a little
bit because I've been there," she said. "I've
now worn every hat you can wear in this pro-
gram. I've been somebody who doesn't play.
I've been somebody who plays in spots. I've
been the everyday player, and I think that will
be better for all of us, hopefully."
Walton says Ratliff has become the team-
mate players lean on for personality, and with
through-the-roof expectations heading into
her senior year - UF came.within one game
of the Women's College World Series a year
ago - shell be leaning on them to make her
last go around a memorable one.
Ratliff and the No. 13 Gators (5-0) have
already gotten off to a fast start.
After UF's season-opening tournament,
Ratliff leads the team or is tied atop six offen-
sive categories and was one of three Gators to
log a home run, all while hitting .462.
Every time Ratliff takes the field this spring,
her scarred left hand tucked into her glove,
she'll be proving to everyone - most impor-
tantly herself - that every decision made up
to this point has been the right one for her.
With each home run and successful defen-
sive play she will engrain her legacy as the
only senior on the team Walton says might be
his most talented ever.
"I think what every player wants when
they come to this program is to leave a lasting
impression," she said.
"Numbers - we can talk about numbers
all day. But at the end of the season, I don't
want it to be that I hit .300. I want it fb be all
those freshmen that are coming through, I
want them to tell stories about me when I'm
gone.

Fresh-faced Gators open home slate with Mercer


By KYLE MAISTRI
S Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

UF will log its first home games
of the season on Wednesday when
the No. 13 Gators (5-0) face the
Mercer Bears (1-1) in a double-
header.
It �ill be the first-ever meeting
between the teams, and with nine


freshmen on UF's roster, expect
to see a lot of individual firsts as
well.
Coach Tim Walton has already
plugged second baseman Aja
Paculba, shortstop Megan Bush
and third baseman Shaunice
Harris into the starting lineup.
Tiffany DeFelice has impressed
the coaching staff as well and will


likely split time at designated hit-
ter and catcher in order to get her
big bat into the lineup.
Rounding out the list of first-
year players who have already
made an impact is starting pitcher
Stephanie Brombacher.
Brombacher, like many of her
other freshman teammates, won
two state championships in high

school, and Walton points to that
winning background when speak-
ing of his impressive 2008 class.
"You have to understand that
our entire freshman class has won
a championship, so they come in
there with that experience and
level of athleticism really ready to
compete," he said in a press con-
ference Monday.
At the beginning of the season,
Walton said chemistry would be
something the team would have
to work on because of all the new
additions to the roster.
Look no further than up the
middle of the diamond for a per-
fect example on how the Gators are
doing their best to build a special
kind of team chemistry.
Paculba got the starting job at
second after All-American Kim
Waleszonia was moved to center-
field at the start of the season.
Now UF's young double-play
combination has been able to form
a bond both on and off the field.
"We live in the same dorm,"
Bush said before being interrupted
by Paculba.
"We share a bathroom."
The two used the same bat in
batting practice on Tuesday, and
after being interviewed together,
it was clear the two share thoughts
and sentences also.
"We go everywhere together,"
Bush continued. "We share a scoot-
er most of the time, and we got to
be really close friends. Closer than
I would have expected, and it re-


ally helps out on the softball field
too."
As if there weren't enough com-
monalities between the two middle
infielders, they both logged their
first home runs in their very first
college game.
Oh, and the two both chose to
leave their home state of California
to come play softball for UF
- Bush is from Anaheim, and
Paculba is from Wildomar.
In addition to Bush and Paculba,
the Gators welcomed three other
Californians to Gainesville this
season.

Priebe and utitl-
Sity player Kelsey

ing the number of Californians
on UF's roster to eight - pitcher
Stacey Nelson, catcher Francesca
Enea and Waleszonia are also from
the Golden State.
"Being however many of us
from California, we stay together
all the time," Paculba said.
The freshmen are going to have
to learn to play together as well,
but they don't seem too concerned
about developing the skills and
mindset it takes to compete at a
high level.
"I'm sure almost all the fresh-
men have been in big situations,"
Bush said. "We know how to play
the game, and we just do what we
do best."

Junior having turnaround year


Three wins so far this season


By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Writer

A track-and-field shot put
weighs 16 pounds, but that's noth-
ing compared to the weight of ex-
pectations that Beau Burroughs has
carried around with him for the last
three years.
Burroughs, a high school All-
American at. Tampa Jesuit High,
began throwing the shot put at
age 10.
"My dad put a shot in my hand
when I was 10 years old, and I nev-
er looked back," Burroughs said.
He was the Florida Class 2A
state champion in both the discus
and the shot put in 2004 and was


an alternate for the 2005 junior na-
tional team.
After considering Arizona,
Auburn, Mississippi State and UF,
Burroughs signed to compete for
Florida State out of high school.
After redshirting during his
freshman year at FSU, he decided
to transfer to UF.
"I just never felt comfortable at
Florida State," he said.
Burroughs did not compete for
UF during the 2006 season.
He then spent his sophomore
season much as he did the previous
year - on the sideline - getting
sick with a stomach ulcer in the
middle of the year.
"I lost about 20 pounds, and

rial meet at the O'Connell Center on Jan. 26.


it caused all of my throws to go
down," Burroughs said. "I wasn't
able to train for a lot of the season."
Burroughs' illness, along with a
constant rotation of coaches, ham-
pered his progress during the last
two years.
"I have had a different coach
each year that I have been here,"
Burroughs said. "It's hard, because
each coach brings a different pro-
gram with a different feel. This
is the first time that I have had
the same coach for more than six
months."
After years of disappointment,
Burroughs has finally started to live
up to the hype.
Through the first three meets of
the season, the junior is a perfect
three for three in collegiate com-
petition and has moved into sixth
place on UF's all-time indoor shot
put list.
Before the 2008 season,
Burroughs had never won a col-
legiate meet.
"I feel like I have really un-
derachieved the last two years,"
hesaid. "I feel like I have put too
much pressure on myself in the
past, but this year I am just having
a lot of fun."
UF assistant coach Steve Lemke
believes that Burroughs' laid-back
approach has made a difference in
how he has competed this year.
"He is just more relaxed this
year," Lemke said. "He's not just
hoping to do well. He is expecting
to do well."
Burroughs credits Lemke with
much of his improvement over the
last year.
"I feel like I have become a better
overall athlete," Burroughs said.
Lemke, who has more than 20
years of collegiate and international
coaching experience, has focused
on simplifying Burroughs' train-
ing.
"We have really worked on
keeping his technique simple,"
Lemke said. "Because his training
sessions have gone well, he has
been a lot more confident in the
meets. He has put together a couple
of months of really good training."
While Burroughs is pleased
with his fast start to the season, he
makes his real goals for the season
perfectly clear.
"The only meet that matters
is the [Southeastern Conference
Championship]," Burroughs said.
"These other meets are just tune-
ups. They're practices."


Balanced play


keeps UF in third

By ANDY HUTCHINS
Alligator Writer

UF women's golf coach Jill Briles-Hinton said her
team played its second round at the Northrop Grumman
Challenge in beautiful, sunny weather in Palos Verdes, Ca./
far removed from the gloomy skies of Gainesville.
The Gators can be pardoned for thinking they too weath-
ered a storm.
On a day when only one golfer, Southern California's
Belen Mozo, finished under par, No. 6 UF fired a combined
seven-over 291 and held fast to third place.
It could have been even better. Freshman Jessica
Yadloczky was assessed a two-stroke penalty for moving
her ball on the 18th green and ended up with a one-over 72
for Tuesday, putting her at one-over for the tournament.
Without the penalty, Yadloczky would have been tied
with Taylore Karle of Pepperdine, the only player under
par through 36 holes, and her Gators would sit just one shot
behind leader USC.
But Briles-Hinton lauded her decision.
"She just moved her ball a fraction, didn't
quite understand the rule, then thought it
might have been a problem and brought
it to my attention," Briles-Hinton said.
"Some people would've done it and
hoped nobody saw it. She did the right
Yadloczky thing."
Yadloczky's conscience is dear:
"Golf is an honest game," she said. "There's no way in the
world I would hold it back."
"She ended up with a 72 instead of a DQ," Bpiles-Hinton
added. "I'm proud of her."
Disqualification would have been painful, as Yadloczky
may be playing the best golf of her young UF career, some-
thing she attributes to an unorthodox Briles-Hinton tactic
last week.
"She took us to mini-golf" at Gainesville's Skate Statiowc
Funworks, Yadloczky said, "to practice for these greens. (On
some holes), we couldn't leave until we made two holes-in-
one in a row."
It sounds crazy, the freshman admits, but it's working.
"I am playing great, putting better than I ever have. A lot
of credit goes to Coach for her creative preparation for this
tournament."
That preparation is paying off for the whole team, as
seniors Tiffany Chudy and Whitney Myers and freshman
Hannah Yun all shot two-over 73s to make the Gators the
only school without a qualifying score of 74 or higher on
Tuesday. Briles-Hinton credits the team's depth for its per-
formance.
"We're fortunate to have five, six, seven young ladies
who shoot these numbers, and the girls can be confident that
if they're not playing well, someone can back them up."
Her Gators don't appear likely to back down.
"They're getting the job done," Briles-Hinton said.

Emotional Tigers on prowl for upset road win

on out.
After nearly shocking Tennessee
in Knoxville, it's obvious the hapless
Tigers are playing inspired basketball.
UF is next on the list, and you can rest
assured the Gators (19-5, 6-3 SEC) are
expecting LSU to play like it has noth-
ing gjose.
"When someone's back is against

have to be real pissed. Usually that
doesn't happen until the end of the

Freshman forward Anthony

8.5 rebounds per game, while junior
guard Marcus Thornton leads the way
at 19.5 points per game.
Donovan echoed his point guard's
sentiment and spoke
about dealing with a
team playing more
on passion than any-
thing else.
"I think in light of
everything that has
happened over the
last week with LSU
and John Brady, I

fax machine to unwrap athletes they have drooled over for

feeding the fire and devaluing the tradition.
Recruits have until April 1 to sign, but that usually isn't

and could have possibly won the game.

UF is coming off a 77-67 win against
Georgia where Donovan criticized his
team's defensive play and mindset.
Donovan continued to stress the im-
portance of playing on both sides of
the ball and talked about his concerns
moving forward.
The Gators have allowed 70 points
or more in each of their SEC losses.
"What I've been the most upset
about is our approach mentally on that
end of the floor," Donovan said. "It's

to start to make that decision as a team

deified by coaches and media alike.
I'm not saying Pryor is an attention hog. By all accounts,
he's a humble, charming person, and he didn't come off,as
arrogant when I spoke to him last year. It's not up to him
to set an example for the world either, but his actions are
likely to have an effect on recruiting in the near future.
There are already kids making spectacles of their an-
nouncements, or, as UF coach Urban Meyer said it, "put-
ting on different hats and ripping shirts open," to get
publicity, so what will they do with the option of waiting?
It could throw the entire recruiting process off kilter
and reduce National Signing Day to just an ordinary
Wednesday.
And since it's the only part of recruiting that has yet
to go totally careening out of control, that would be a real
shame.

Women have better

RPI than men's team

WHOOPS, from page 20

Thompson said. "That was another team. In the
second half, that was more of us coming back and
making a run."
It hurt even more watching her team struggle
through running the offense.
"We were having trouble entering the ball into the
wings and into the post," she said. "Mississippi State
- they had good defense, but it wasn't that good
to where we couldn't really get it into the post. We
just weren't mentally there in the
game.
THE NUMBERS SAY ... the UF
women's basketball team (15-9, 4-5
Women's Southeastern Conference) is better
Basketball than the men's basketball team (19-
5, 6-3 SEC). At least, going by their
RPIs, according to CollegeRPI.com, which takes into
account winning percentage and strength of schedule.
The women have an RPI of 39, while the men have an
RPI of 43.
Butler admitted to being surprised but not shocked
at the way the numbers work out.
"(It's surprising) because we've lost on more oc-
casions than them, and so it doesn't feel like maybe
our RPIs should be the same," Butler said. "However,
the strength of our leagues is obviously very similar.
So I think whether you've won your last one or lost
your last one, when you're in league play, generally
your RPI is going to reflect the strength of who you're
playing against, and so from that standpoint, it's not
as surprising."
