Departments avoid more cuts

* $11.5 MILLION CUT WILL COME
FROM UF'S RESERVE FUNDS.

* * By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
SAlligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

UF's budget situation got brighter
Thursday, at least for the near future.
UF President Bernie Machen announced
at a Faculty Senate meeting that UF's sec-
T .- ond round of budget cuts would be almost
$5 million less than expected, and no aca-
demic departments would have to reduce
their budgets.
The cut, now $11.5 million instead of
the previously announced $16 million, will
come from UF's
SUF reserves, a pool
TAdministration of one-time funds
separate from the
university's budget.
Bottom line: Students and faculty won't
feel a thing, at least for now. Machen said all
indications from the state Legislature and
economic projections point to more cuts
next year, maybe as high as $40 million to
$50 million.
The Legislature will determine next
year's budget during-its session in March.
Earlier this year, UF cut $34 million
. from its budget. In January, the university
.. learnedd it needed to trim $16 million more
.. by July based on an estimate of what the
Legislature would do in March.
., In a Thursday conference call, the Board
of Governors, which oversees Florida's
11 public universities, announced that the
Legislature's spring budget cut proposal is
Harrison Diamond Alligator StaO half as much as the board expected.

UF ACADEMICS

Transfer students may bear brunt of cuts


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

To comply with requests from the
Board of Governors to stifle enrollment
for the fall, UF may be left with only
one option: cutting transfer students.
And that news did not sit well across
town at SFCC.
In an e-mail sent out to UF admin-


istrators. Thursday,
Provost Janie Fouke
wrote that in order
to respond to the re-
quest from the board,
the State University
System's highest
governing body, UF
Fouke would likely accept
fewer transfer students this year.
All freshmen and several graduate


student admissions decisions have
already been announced, Fouke wrote.
And while UF awaits guidance from
the board, the Florida Legislature and
UF's Board of Trustees, the release of
transfer-admissions decisions will be
delayed until at least April 15.
Lawrence Keen, SFCC's assistant to
college President Jackson Sasser, made

Senators


make stop


at Shands

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Florida's two U.S. senators pledged to
look for ways to reduce financial burdens
on health care providers in an appearance at
Shands at UF on Thursday.
Sen. Mel Martinez, a Republican from
Orlando, and Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat
from Orlando, stressed the bleak effect of
Medicare budget cuts on Florida health care.
Martinez said one of the system's biggest
problems is Medicare fraud. He said people
seem to ask for resources and money they
don't need.
"Florida is particularly a victim of this
situation," he said.
For example, Martinez said only about
8 percent of people with AIDS nationwide
live in South Florida, yet 72 percent of all
Medicare claims for HIV infusions come
from that area.
"Florida is particularly a victim of
this situation."
Mel Martinez
U.S. senator

In another case, a woman from Florida
requested thousands of dollars for prosthetic
limbs, but she wasn't an amputee, Martinez
said.
He said he proposed a bill to double the
Medicare fraud penalty from five years in
prison to 10 years, which made it through
the U.S. Senate last week.
Nelson said physicians' financial woes
also result from Medicare reimbursement
cuts.
The 2007 bill extended Medicare and
Medicaid by offering physicians a 0.5 per-
cent reimbursement increase as opposed to
a 10 percent reduction, but that increase will
only last through June, Nelson said.
"There has to be some reordering," he
said. "The way not to do it is the way we do

Decal hikes


may lessen
Scooter decal prices, which were proposed
last month to increase from $36 a year to $121,
may now only rise to $64.
The proposal, suggested by UF's
Transportation and Parking Services, was
amended after students voiced concerns, said
Ron Fuller, the department's assistant director.
The prices must be approved at the March
meeting of the Board of Trustees, UF's high-
est governing body. Prices for all other decals
could also rise by about 10 percent if the pro-
posal is accepted.
iU F Fuller said the de-
Administration cal increases would
fund campus parking
maintenance, which costs almost $1 million a
year, and a $23 million new garage next to the
transportation department on Gale Lemerand
Drive, scheduled to open in June 2009. The de-
partment relies solely on decal sales and park-
ing ticket fees for its revenue, he said.
Over the years, scooters costs have exceed-
ed decal revenue.
Because the popularity of scooters and
motorcycles has grown, UF has had to provide
better, larger parking locations for them on
campus - renovations the .department can't
afford without decal hikes, Fuller said. In addi-
tion, he said the higher prices might decrease
the amount of scooters ridden on campus,
which currently poses a safety threat.
"You put hundreds of scooters flying by
Turlington at class time, and it's a big deal,"
he said.

With UF Student Government elections
S \ just four days away, the three candidates from
each party said Thursday night that they are
.,. poised to tackle tough issues, including cam-
pus transportation and online voting.
SCandidates from the Gator Party and the
Orange and Blue Party spoke with about 50
students at a meet and greet hosted by the
Hispanic Student Association.
Frank Bracco, vice presidential candidate
for the Orange and Blue Party, said Regional
Transit System routes need to be improved.
Yooni Yi, vice presidential candidate for
Sthe Gator Party, said SG is already working
on a Global Positioning System, or GPS, for
buses so students know when to expect buses
to reach certain stops.
Students also asked candidates if they
agreed with the UF Supreme Court's Feb.
12 ruling of an online voting amendment as
unconstitutional.
Tommy Jardon, Student Body presiden-
tial candidate and president of Students for
Online Voting, said denying an amendment
suggests that the Student Body constitution
can't be improved.
Kevin Reilly, presidential candidate for the
Gator Party, disagreed. Reilly said when SG
starts "second guessing" the court, it under-
mines the court's authority, which could be
Nicole Safker/ Alligator Staff detrimental to SG's power in Florida.
Student Body presidential candidate Tommy Jardon speaks to students "The Gator Party is old," he said. "We re-
and other Student Government hopefuls at Little Hall Thursday night. spect the autonomy and ruling of the court."

Experts say increased recycling efforts not only solution


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

While both UF and the city
continue to push recycling services,
several experts say those types of
programs might not be enough to
make the necessary environmental
impact.
"Recycling is not bad in itself,
but it is a distraction from the
consumption of products and
containers," said Allan L. Griff, a
California-based engineering con-
sultant, in a phone interview.
"If you use nothing, that's the
smallest carbon footprint of all,"
Griff said.
Still, both the university and the
city are continuing to expand recy-
cling programs.
On Feb. 1, Gainesville broad-
ened its program to collect office
paper and junk mail.
Last December, the city offered


tips on how to recycle Christmas
trees.
And this Wednesday and
Thursday, Alachua County will
offer businesses free recycling
of electronics waste as the coun-
ty's Environmental Protection
Department and Office of Waste
Alternatives kick off a new "e-
scrap" program.
Dale Morris, solid waste co-
ordinator of UF's Physical Plant
Department, said the university
has recently instituted recycling
programs at Gator Dining and is
working to get more indoor recy-
cling bins.
The university is also competing
in Recyclemania, a 10-week recy-
cling contest among colleges. In
pounds recycled per person, UF is
currently 82nd out of 400 schools.
Dedee DeLongpre, UF's direc-
tor of sustainability, said recycling
is still better than throwing things
away.


"If it goes in a landfill, it's not
going anywhere," DeLongpre said.
But recycling can't be the only
answer, she said.
People should also look for
ways to reduce consumption, such
as buying durable products that
can be reused or boycotting those
with excessive packaging, she said.
"If something comes with a
whole lot of packaging, I write a let-
ter to the company and say, 'Why
does it have to have 92 pieces of


plastic for this one little thing?'"
she said.
Morris said the university itself
is working on using fewer materi-
als.
For example, he said, purchas-
ers are working with textbook
companies to use textbook editions
for a longer time, reducing wasted
paper.
"We still want to recycle what's
out there, but we definitely believe
in reuse," he said.


Griff said he didn't think people
will ever move past recycling and
reduce theirconsumption.
"You're dealing really with reli-
gious behavior," he said.
Btut DeLongpr6 said she believes
people who recycle are willing to
do more.
"People understand recycling,"
she said.
"Oftentimes for us, it's a point
of entry for a conversation about
something more impactful."

Editorial
We hate to say it, but it's sometimes just easier to
blame it all on the moon. Here at Darts & Laurels
headquarters, we're seriously thinking that the lu-
nar eclipse this Wednesday may be the only way to explain
some of the crazy things happening here in Gainesville and
halfway across the world. So if you're ready to leave this
week behind,and you've braved the rain once again to make
it to campus, we reward you with another week's edition
of...



Darts &+eees-
We have to start by offering up the mandatory protecting-
the-unborn-doesn't-require-exploiting-dead-fetuses DART to
UF's Pro-Life Alliance for inviting the Center for Bio-Ethical
Reform to our campus. If you were lucky enough to have missed
it, the prominent mural on the Plaza of the Americas displayed
images of aborted fetuses next to those from the Holocaust and
Rwandan genocide as part of its bogus "Genocide Awareness
Project."
Rather than engage anyone in any productive debate about
abortion, the project disgusted a majority of the passersby
with its graphic photos and missed a real chance to promote
its cause. If the Pro-Life Alliance really wanted to reach out to
UF students, it could start by not using lurid, insulting photos
to do it.
On to more conservative offenses, we bestow a shouldn't-
you-be-arguing-about-failing-test-scores-instead DART to the
State Board of Education for shying away from controversy
this week. Qualifying the landmark decision to teach evolu-
tion - yes, even in 2008 - with the words "scientific theory"
rather than a fact makes us question whether the separation of
church and state is even applicable in the sunshine state. And as
usual, students across the state are the ones who stand to lose
the most.
Educational standards were dealt yet another blow this
week by our usually suave Gov. Charlie Crist. Our orange-
glow governor earned himself a do-you-have-your-head-in-
the-sand-when-you-get-that-tan DART when he said state uni-
versities should live within their means and be satisfied with his
spending proposals, which include no tuition increase.
At the conference with university presidents, he told the St.
Petersburg Times that if "they're unhappy, maybe they ought
to turn the reins over to somebody else." Way to be diplomatic,
Charlie.
Another group that could use a lesson or two in diplomacy
is the irate Serbian protesters. When many nations recognized
Kosovo as an independent country, the angry Serbians decided
to set various embassies ablaze, including the American em-
bassy in Belgrade. They earned themselves the maybe-you-
shouldn't-oppose-what-you-call-instability-by-starting-riots
DART. Throwing rocks and breaking windows makes you look
like petulant children, not a political force to be reckoned with.
Just a thought, guys, just a thought.
Finally, we can't help but pick on one of our inspirations
with a this-is-why-Americans-blame-the-media-for-everything
DART going out to The New York Times. We question the pa-
per's decision Thursday to print what can only be described as
lazy and irresponsible journalism with a story that could have
wrongfully hurt the reputation of Sen. John McCain. The story
detailed a possible affair with a lobbyist - who bears a creepy
resemblance to Mrs. McCain if we do say so ourselves - from
eight years ago.
Thqt's right, eight years ago. Not only did the article have no
news value and relied heavily on anonymous sources, it gave
the Republican Party and its conservative base another reason
to dismiss the paper. Can't the Gray Lady come up with some-
thing that hasn't been recycled from two elections ago?

Carly Hallam This brings me to my next con-

Restaurant every night drinking pitcher after pitcher of
Budweiser. If you want to get in shape, you may have to
change more than the resistance on the StairMaster.
We have to be cautious of what goes into our bodies as
well. I am aware that many college students' daily diet con-
sists of caramel lattes, bowls of ramen noodles and a six-pack
of Bud Light. And I also know that socializing at the bar is a
top priority in many peoples' lives - which is fine.
. But for the record, a large amount of what you are con-
suming late at night completely reverses any positive effects
your workout may have had on your figure.
So if you want to devote yourself to a diet and exercise
routine, that's great. But it needs to be an almost comprehen-
sive lifestyle change. And remember that while many times
results cannot be seen in 14 days, they can be felt almost
immediately. And this should be more inspiration than an
upcoming Mexican cruise anyway.
So dig those Nike sneakers out of the back of your dusty
closet and join a few thousand of your closest friends at the
Rec Center for that Cancun Kickbox class tonight.
But only exercise if you are doing it to feel healthier and
happier, and not to drop 10 pounds before March 8. Because
folks, it's about as likely as Jessica Alba flopping down on the
pool lounge chair next to me for a chat.
Carly Hallam is an advertising senior. Her column appears
on Friday.


Have discouraging news.
Working out an hour a day for the next two weeks will
not drastically change your body before Spring Break. For
some reason or another, the concept of adopting pre-break
workout regiments has become a popular notion on our
campus. A lot of people have this idea that they can head to
the gym today, for the first time in a few months, and their
beer bellies will just evaporate into the dense Florida air.
At this time of the year, the gyms usually begin to crowd
with ambitious students who are all of a sudden determined
to whip their bodies into shape.
In fact, our collegiate gyms have even implemented a new
set of group exercise classes to be enjoyed for the next two
weeks. There's Tropical Total Body, Beach Bootcamp, Cancun
Kickbox and a few other newly scheduled opportunities to
"shape up" before the big bikini fest.
This, of course, only adds to the chaos of campus work-
outs. You can't get into cycling classes without lining up 45
minutes in advance. And you can't use the squat machine
without swapping repetitions with two other people.
I call this overcrowded gym phenomenon March
Madness. Oh, wait, that's already taken. I call it the pre-
vacation Gator Nation. Two weeks prior to Spring Break,
our motto changes slightly: The University of Florida is in
Gainesville. The Gator Nation is on the elliptical.
If your newfound love of the treadmill stems from how
great you feel after your workout, then tread on, my friend.
But don't kill yourself at Southwest Recreation Center every
evening expecting your body to transform like a before-and-
after ad for Hydroxycut. And definitely do' not stop eating.
This seems to be a late February trend as well.
Sure, we all want to look like pre-baby bump Jessica Alba
when we slip into our suits. But in reality, it's unfortunately
not going to happen, at least not before March 8. I'm certain
Jessica didn't wait until 14 days before the filming of "Into
The Blue" to work on those toned arms and rock-hard abs.
And she most certainly consumes food like any other healthy

Abortion is not the same as genocide
The pro-life display this week on campus
was the most insensitive thing I have ever
witnessed. As a grandchild of Holocaust sur-
vivors, I am deeply offended by the Center for
Bio-Ethical Reform and Pro-Life Alliance's at-
tempt to compare the Holocaust with abortion.
Upon seeing the gruesome display, I ap-
proached one of the group's representatives to
ask her why they made this comparison. The
representative told me the definition of "geno-
cide" and asked me to determine if abortion
met the criteria of the definition. I responded
by saying that Hitler and the Nazis system-
atically tried to eliminate the Jews and other
groups through a master plan. The Nazis built
death camps capable of killing millions of peo-
ple for the simple reason that they were Jewish,
Catholic, handicapped, black, gypsy or political
opponents. The representative then said abor-
tion clinics are just like Nazi death camps but
never had the ability to explain why.
Pro-choice advocates are not shipping preg-
nant mothers in cattle cars to abortion clinics
and eliminating their unborn babies. One can't
compare the Holocaust to abortion - this pari-
ty would be calling the Supreme Court the Nazi
Party. I had the opportunity to travel to Poland
in 2004 to view the death camps at Auschwitz
and Treblinka. The trip has forever changed
the way I look at the world. Maybe these
pro-life sensationalists should go to Poland or


Rwanda before making inaccurate associations.
Jonathan Mann

Display allowed students to see truth
In Thursday's editorial, the author wrote
that the anti-abortion display set up by the
Center for Bio-Ethical Reform "was, at best, in-
sensitive and tasteless." Is it the display or the
result depicted that is insensitive? How does
this author have the audacity to call this group
insensitive? They are giving a voice to those
who can't speak.
The editorial also states the display "turns
off anyone who would be willing to ask a
question..." I find it interesting that this author
assumes to be speaking for everyone. When
I was looking at the pictures, I heard college
students actually say things like, "That's really
what abortion looks like?" Maybe if ignorant
pro-choice people learned what abortion re-
ally looks like, then America would outlaw this
form of murder. If you don't want to see the
insensitive results in these pictures, don't look.
And as you walk away, ask yourself, "Why do I
not want to see the truth of abortion?"
Maybe because to see the truth is to recog-
nize one's conscience, and in today's world,
a conscience is a barrier to our own selfish,
materialistic endeavors.

board's spokesman.
But because of the reduced
cut this year, Edmonds said next
year's could be worse.
"The Legislature is burning up
its savings this year, which leaves
no cushion for the next," he wrote
in an e-mail.
To prepare for next year,
Machen said every UF department
must propose a
plan to deal with
a possible 6 per-
cent cut, which
would amount
to about $40
million to $50
million.
Machen In the long
term, he said UF
should rethink how it operates.
Machen pointed to a consistent
decline in UF's state support for
the past 20 years.
Machen said -he would work
with UF's chief financial officer
and ask other universities, espe-
cially private institutions, how
they manage without strong state
support.
"It's chilling," he said. "We get
our money from the state, and we
.~.spend it. It's a fair conclusion to
me that that model doesn't work
anymore, if it ever worked."

"I changed my whole life to be here and

done since October could be for nothing."
Katelyn Witsell, a first-year SFCC stu-
dent, said students shouldn't rely on just
one university to accept them but added
a reduction in transfer student admissions
would be a cause for concern for her, al-
though she doesn't plan on transferring to
UF until 2009.
"By then, it might be a total mess and
impossible to get in," Witsell said.

knew. They gave me a lot of knowledge. And as time
has passed, I've been able to adjust and get into the right
frame of mind."
Sophomore Cole Figueroa, who hit 11 home runs and
drove in 50 runs last year, returns as the starting short-
stop. Senior Jon Townsend will be at third base, where he
started 40 games last year. Sophomore Hampton Tignor
is slated to open the season at catcher.
The biggest hurdle for the Gators may be establishing
cohesion. Though most of them have played multiple
games together, Townsend feels there is still room to
grow, especially for a team with just five seniors. It's here
that the late start to the season will help the Gators the
most.


"We have a lot of young guys that are going to have to
step up and play," Townsend said. "It's like that every-
where, but that definitely helped us out. The only way to
get completely comfortable with each other is by playing
other teams, but obviously practice time helps everyone
get more cohesive as a group. It helps us all learn our
roles."
Though scrimmages and practices may
help build team chemistry, the Gators are
itching to play an opponent who isn't
Baseball wearing orange and blue.
"It's been a long offseason," Townsend
said. "It's been a long wait. We're tired of beating up on
each other. We've used the practice days to fine-tune our
skills as much as we can, but I just want to get out and
play. I can't remember the last time I was this excited to
start a season."


Den Dekker returns in center to lead outfielders


OUTFIELD, from page 18

"I don't consider myself slow, but
they can fly," Pigott said.
Den Dekker, the Gators' center
fielder, comes back from a season
that also saw him selected to the SEC
All-Freshman team.
He will be the outfield's leader
both vocally and diving for catches.
"Matt's going to be a great leader
for us in center field," Barnes said.
"Yeah, he's young, but he got a lot
of experience as a freshman. We're
relying on him to kind of just be


our backbone out there, keeping us
straight, letting us know what we
have to do."
Among returning players, he had
the second-most home runs (seven)
in 2007 as well as
the second-most
steals (five).
"Matt's defi-
nitely a great as-
- set," Pigott said.
"He can cover
den Dekker ground like any-
one.
"I played next to him last year,


and I'm looking forward to it again
this year."
If the young outfielders need to
work on anything, Barnes said it's
their play as a unit.
Only den Dekker started more
than 10 games in his current position
in 2007. Once the season starts, their
trust in each other will grow even if
the situations are intense.
They will also welcome a new-
comer. O'Sullivan said Thursday
that Riley Cooper, a receiver for the
UF football team, will join the squad
as an outfielder.

pitchers didn't hurt either.
"He told me he was going to help me with a lot of
different stuff this year," Toledo said. "He said he'd
help me develop a couple more pitches, and I felt that I
needed to get a little bit bigger."
O'Sullivan sees a lot of potential in Toledo but warns
that the team can't be dependent on any one pitcher.
"You can't rely on one or two guys," O'Sullivan
said. "I've played this schedule multiple times; I'm
used to it. It's not a one- or two-guy deal. It's an eight-
or nine-guy deal. We're going to need eight or 10 really- -.
good pitchers."
A big adjustment for the Gators' staff, which posted
a woeful 5.27 ERA last season, will be getting used to
catcher Hampton Tignor making the calls.
The pitchers will be allowed to shake off his signals,
but it is still a change for them.
"It's been a learning process," closer Josh
Edmondson said. "We've all got to be learning the hit-
ters' different tendencies.
"It's going to be a challenge, but it'll be a plus in the
long run."
The Gators' pitching style will'also change this sea-
son. O'Sullivan wants a faster-paced, more aggressive
style that will hopefully leave UF ahead in the count as
often as possible.
Improved play from the staff will be the key ingre-
dient to improving on last season's 29-30 record.
"If there's one question on this team, it's pitching,"
O'Sullivan said. "I've been pretty outspoken about it.
We're pretty good, but we're not there yet."

Infield shuffles to fill LaPorta's spot

M BRANDON MCARTHUR WILL REPLACE THE
SLUGGER AT FIRST BASE.

-- By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

It's never easy replacing a legend.
Luckily for the Gators, first baseman Brandon
McArthur doesn't expect to. The senior only hopes to
serve as an adequate replacement for Matt LaPorta at
first base, not the 20 home runs LaPorta slammed last
season.
"LaPorta was obviously a big-time offensive player
for us," McArthur said. "But it took guys getting on base ,
for him. We're taking a whole different aspect, we have
a lot of speed and we've learned how to hit in various
ways. One guy's not going to replace him."
The Gators, with speed all over their lineup, figure
to transition well into a "small-ball" type of offense.
The biggest adjustment they face is McArthur's move . .
from second and third base, where he's played his entire
career, to first. His teammates expect the switch to be
smooth. '
"He's a real intelligent guy," sophomore second base-
man Clayton Pisani said. "He picks things up quickly,
and he's athletic enough to play anywhere. He used to .
play middle infield and did a great job there. It takes a .
different skill set to play at first, but he's looked great."
McArthur, who missed all but one game last season
with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow,
admits that the change was difficult initially, but he has
adjusted to his new role.
"When I made the adjustment in the fall, there were a
lot of new things to learn," McArthur said. "The coach- Alligator File P

UF BASEBALL

Speedy outfielders provide Gators a spark


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

If UF's strength this season is going to
be speed, the outfield may be the first place
people look.
The trio of Avery Barnes, Matt den
Dekker and Jonathan Pigott combined for
13 of the team's 25 stolen bases last season
among returning players. With new coach
Kevin O'Sullivan, expect the team's total to
increase and those three to take on the brunt
of the larger load.
"We definitely have a quick outfield,"
Barnes said. "With that, we're going to do
our best to try to make plays for our pitchers
in the outfield."
Barnes, a junior left fielder coming off
an Academic All-Southeastern Conference


year, will bat leadoff this season. The Gators
will rely on Barnes' speed to get him on
base early and often, as well as to make up
ground in the outfield.
"Being quick kind of helps you
make up for some mistakes."
Avery Barnes
UFjunior left fielder

"You definitely have a little bit more
room for error," Barnes said. "Being quick
kind of helps you make up for some mis-
takes."
Barnes hit .293 last season, a .066 increase
from his freshman campaign, and hopes to
adjust to the outfield after playing most of
last season at second base.
"I love Avery in the leadoff spot,"


O'Sullivan said. "He's a pain in the butt.
I mean, he'll slash a ball to the shortstop's
right, he'll roll the ball to the second base-
man's left, and he's got. some power. He's
reckless - he's got no fear of failure on the
base path. Our offense is going to start with
him."
Pigott, a sophomore right fielder, was
spread around the field last season. He
started 26 games in the outfield but only
10 in right. Still, he feels comfortable in that
position and is coming off a selection to the
SEC All-Freshman team.
Pigott hit .260 with 14 RBI last year,
including a 2-for-2 performance in his first
college game on Feb. 9, 2007 against Virginia
Military Institute.
He said he's the slowest of the outfield-
ers.

Mullaney


leads UF


pitchers

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

The rise of Kyle Mullaney is
in full effect.
The sophomore, who spent
most of last season in the bull-
pen before ending the season as
the Gators' Friday night starter,
begins the season as the ace of
UF's staff.
Mullaney was 4-2 with a 4.25
ERA and five starts last season.
The right-hander, knowing
there would be more pressure
on him this season, spent the
off-season developing a change-
up he feels makes
him a much more
dangerous pitch-
Baseball er. Mullaney
Baseball is hoping the
change-up will
be a strong change of pace from
his fastball and curveball.
"If you want to start, you
have to have three pitches that
you can throw for strikes,"
Mullaney said. "Now that I do
that, I think I'll be a lot more
affective."
Coach Kevin O'Sullivan,
who has a strong pedigree
as a pitching coach, helped
Mullaney develop his change-
up throughout the off-season
and said Mullaney "would not
be starting Friday if he didn't
have three pitches."
Junior Patrick Keating, who
appeared in 21 games last sea-
son, will be the Gators' Saturday
night starter. Freshman phenom
Tommy Toledo will start on
Sunday.
Toledo was chosen in the
third round of the MLB draft
last year by the San Diego
Padres. Toledo spent the sum-
mer mulling his options but ul-
timately decided he needed a bit
more seasoning before he joined
the professional ranks.

Freshman Bruder contributes in utility role for UF


* UNDEFEATED UF WILL PLAY
FIVE GAMES THIS WEEKEND.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

No. 1 in your hearts, No. 2, No. 33, No.
13, or No. 11 in your program.
The jerseys freshman utility player
Kelsey Bruder has worn so far this season
read like the winning lucky-program
numbers announced in between innings
at Pressly Stadium.
"[Coach Tim Walton] just says, 'Your
jerseys aren't in yet. Here's a medium,
wear it,'" Bruder said.
The lefty, listed as No. 2 in the media
guide, has begun to show versatility not
just in her number, but in her game.
In the Cox Communications Classic
last weekend, Bruder came in against
College of Charleston and earned her first
college victory, pitching three scoreless
and surrendering only one hit.
She is part of the reason why the No. 7
Gators (14-0) have enjoyed early success.
On Friday, UF will look to continue that
success in the Aquafina Invitational, as it
hosts Gardner-Webb and North Florida
before facing Notre Dame on Saturday.
Walton said at the beginning of the


season that Bruder and freshman Kristen
Adkins would be the third and fourth
pitchers in the Gators' staff.
While pitchers don't normally hit in
softball, Bruder has found her way into
the starting lineup as the designated
player in each of the last two contests.
"I love both of them, it's really hard to
say," she said when asked whether she
likes pitching or hitting better. "But I think
I might be a little more partial to hitting."
After struggling through her first few
at-bats, Bruder recorded her first hit as a
Gator on Sunday when she rocketed a
double into right field, scoring a run.
"I was putting so much pressure on
myself," she said of her slow start. "I had
a talk with Coach, and I feel like I'm get-
ting much better at-bats now."
Bruder, who is from Corona, Calif.,
and attended UC-Santa Barbara for the
fall semester, has plenty of support from
old friends as she adapts to the higher
level of softball.
Second baseman Aja Paculba and
third baseman Shaunice Harris are from
the same part of California as Bruder, and
the three played on a travel team coached
by Bruder's mom. Paculba and Harris
helped convince Bruder to attend UF.
"Aja and Shaunice, I've played with
them since I was 10. I talked to them and
they said they loved it here," Bruder said.

UF GYMNASTICS

Goodwin's return leads Gators' improved bars lineup


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

The Gators may have finally found the solution to their
uneven bars problem.
After the first meet of the season, No. 3 UF (6-1, 4-1
Southeastern Conference) hadn't been able to put together a
championship score in the event.
Then came Friday's meet against LSU when Coach Rhonda
Faehn decided to return freshman Alicia Goodwin to the
lineup for the first time since the opening meet.
Goodwin led UF with the highest opening score of the sea-
son (9.875), and the team only continued to improve from there,


finishing with the third-highest bars total in school history.
Faehn had Goodwin compete in exhibitions in the five meets
between her two performances to gain more
experience and heal an ankle injury.
"She did start out great at the beginning
I - of the year but then struggled just a little
bit," Faehn said. "She became timid and
not as aggressive, and we really wanted to
give her more opportunities to kind of feel
her way in. She needed to learn a little bit of
Faehn a lesson about how you train in the gym is
how you are going to perform in the meet."
The decision to put Goodwin back in the lineup came after
she showed more consistency in her workouts and more confi-


dence in her exhibitions in recent weeks.
Her hard work was evident in Friday's meet as she put to-
gether a strong routine, and Faehn will look for the newcomer
to continue to get better with her newfound knowledge.
"If she just continues in that path of training well, she will
have a great opportunity to be in our lineup," Faehn said.
Goodwin needs to use Friday's upcoming meet at North
Carolina and the Gators' two other remaining regular-eason
competitions to get valuable practice for championship meets
in a little more than a month.
"I trust Alicia that in the more repetitions she does with
beautiful bar swing and great form and execution, I will feel
confident she will be able to take on (a leadoff) role," Faehn
said.


New coach's arrival prompts predictions of program's revival


O'SULLIVAN, from page 24

freshman again," McArthur said. "This team
is going to the top. ... (O'Sullivan is) going to
be our Urban Meyer who's going to make sure
we're competitive every year."
O'Sullivan's transition didn't come without
at least one rocky patch. Former Gators catcher
Cody Neer announced he was transferring to
Nebraska in December amid speculation that
he wasn't happy with the new coaching staff.
While the team refuses to get into specifics, it
appears they're happier without him.
"There were a couple guys who weren't
able to hop onto it and get the gist of it,"
McArthur said, "and fortunately they're not
here right now."

Brothers
O'Sullivan spent nine successful seasons
as an assistant coach at Clemson. The Tigers
compiled a 403-194 during that span and
had 29 players selected in the MLB draft. But
O'Sullivan wanted more. While he says he
never went out and looked for jobs, he admits
he was ready to listen to any offers.
In early July, UF Athletics Director Jeremy
Foley picked up the phone and asked
O'Sullivan if he was interested in the Gators'
suddenly vacant head coaching position.


* It was an opportunity he couldn't turn
down.
O'Sullivan was named UF's new baseball
coach on June 14. When the time came for him
to decide who would comprise his coaching
staff only two names came to mind - Brad
Weitzel and Craig Bell.
You'd be hard pressed to find many people
who know O'Sullivan better than them.
Weitzel coached O'Sullivan and Bell in the
1980s. Though they were only together for a
short time, the relationships they built were
lasting. O'Sullivan credits Weitzel with his
basic coaching philosophies.
"He's taken things that I taught them and
using them," Weitzel said. "He's taken them,
used them and been successful with them. I'm
very happy with that."
Weitzel admits that working alongside
O'Sullivan for more than 20 years after he
coached him forms an interesting dynamic.
"I feel like his big brother," Weitzel said. "I
feel like his uncle. He leans on me for a lot of
stuff outside of baseball."
Because there is so much mutual respect
between the coaching staff, O'Sullivan has
made an effort to have all three remain an
integral part of the decision-making.
O'Sullivan works with the pitchers, Bell
spends time with the fielders and Weitzel
focuses on hitting. But all three accept sugges-


tions and aid each other. O'Sullivan is clearly
the leader of the group though. His colleagues
saw those leadership qualities early on.
"This team is going to the top.
... (O'Sullivan is) going to be our
Urban Meyer who's going to make
sure we're competitive every year."

Brandon McArthur
UF senior first baseman


"He's the kind of guy where you can see it
right away," Bell said. "He was a good player
because he always knew what the other guys
were supposed to do. He was always real
demanding with the pitchers. He's got leader-
ship skills."

Picking up the Pieces
The shards of the Gators' broken baseball
program still haven't been picked up. While
everyone agrees hiring O'Sullivan is a step in
the right direction, there is still a lot of work
to be done.
O'Sullivan was hired largely because of his
reputation as a great pitching coach. He'll earn
every penny if he's able to turn around a UF
pitching staff that posted a woeful 5.27 ERA


last year.
O'Sullivan's plan is to drastically change
the team's approach to pitching. And he'll
have some baby pit bulls on his hands if suc-
cessful.
"Our pitchers are going to be very aggres-
sive," he said. "We want to attack hitters and
make them hit balls out of the park. We're
going to get after guys, and we don't want to
walk a lot of guys. We're not going to be afraid
of contact."
The Gators appear to have adjusted well to
O'Sullivan's style. The pitchers have received
rave reviews throughout preseason practices,
highlighted by improved play from sopho-
more Kyle Mullaney and the emergence of
freshman hurler Tommy Toledo.
Few outside of Gainesville give UF much
of chance this season, citing the loss of slug-
ger Matt LaPorta and youth throughout the
lineup.
Don't tell Weitzel that though - he atntici-
pates a swift return to national prominence.
"I have expectations to get right in the
middle of it right now," he said. "That's my
expectation. My expectation is we're going
to do everything we can to get a ring on our
finger."
O'Sullivan's story at UF has yet to be inked.
But if his mentor's feelings are correct, it will
be an epic, passionate tale. 0

Opening Pitch


O'Sullivan brings new attitude


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

The Kevin O'Sullivan story almost never
was.
In 1991, the first-year UF baseball coach
four himself at a fork in the road.
He could continue to pursue a career in
baseball - his passion since he was 7 years
old - or he could play it safe.
O'Sullivan, who earned a bachelor's de-
gree in education and sports medicine from
Virginia, also mulled over attending medical
school. (He also got a master's in exercise and


wellness science at FAU in 1995.)
In the end, he chose passion.
"It's hard to give up," O'Sullivan said.
"Everyone's playing days come to an end. But
I wasn't ready to give up my days in the base-
ball side of things. It was a pretty easy decision
and it's worked out well so far."
Not surprising for a guy the Gators de-
scribe as a pit bull.
The Pit Bull
O'Sullivan chuckles every time the nick-
name that has followed him for nearly 20
years is mentioned.
"I don't know about that," he said. "I think


I'm just a guy who works hard. I work hard at
everything I do."
His laid-back, self-effacing demeanor re-
minds you more of a proud lion than a grunt-
ing, growling pit bull.
That is, until he's in a game situations.
That's when his other side comes out.
You can see it during scrimmages. He sits
in a chair placed in front of the dugout with
his arms folded, staring intently at the play on
the field. He barks instructions at his players
throughout the session, his energy and inten-
sity filling McKethan Stadium. The Gators ap-
pear to be slowly taking on his personality, as
if he's imparting a piece of himself into them.
O'Sullivan does give a lot of himself. He
pours himself into his team because it's the


UF first-year baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan will try to rejuvenate a pitching staff that posted a 5.27 ERA last season.


stay up to date


with the latest


only thing he knows.
And he expects the same in return.
"I think the kids feed off of a coach's per-
sonality," O'Sullivan said. "And you've got to
demand a lot if you're going to get a lot. If you
expect things to be done a certain way, the end
result is going to be that."
O'Sullivan is expecting a lot out of these
Gators, even if no one else is. After two sub-
standard seasons, the days of championship
contention are nothing more than a distant
memory.
Last week, UF was picked to finish fifth in
the Southeastern Conference East in the pre-
season coaches' poll.
Only six players remain that took part in
the 2005 College World Series, and UF hasn't
made it back to the NCAA Tournament since.
These tidbits mean little to the Gators.
O'Sullivan's confidence in his players breeds
confidence within them. In his first meeting
with his new team, O'Sullivan told the players
he would never coach a cellar dweller.
"Right off the bat he told us we weren't go-
ing to finish in last place," senior first baseman
Brandon McArthur said. "He said they've
never coached a last-place team before and he
won't be coaching a last-place team as long as
we put in the work"
Puttingin the work is the mantra O'Sullivan
lives his life by. He admits that he was unable
to continue his career as a player because he
simply didn't have big-league talent.
But that didn't keep him from having a suc-
cessful career at Virginia, capped off by being
named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference's
first team as a catcher in 1991 - ahead of
Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek.
O'Sullivan is working to instill that same
work ethic in the Gators, and they've respond-
ed. UF quickly embraced O'Sullivan and his
differences from former coach Pat McMahon.
Though McMahon was beloved by his
players, the common sentiment among them
is that a change was needed, and they'll shout
from the mountaintops that O'Sullivan is the
right man for the job.
"This new coaching staff focuses on being
perfect on every rep," pitcher Josh Edmondson
said. "Not just okay on some and good on oth-
ers, perfect on every rep. Every throw has to be
perfect, every bunt, every pitch."
McArthur is so excited he wishes he could
turn back time.
"I've told so many people I wish I was a

By LIA GANOSELLIS Alligator Writer eganosellis@alligator.org To comply with requests from the Board of Governors to stifle enrollment for the fall, UF may be left with only one option: cutting transfer students. And that news did not sit well across town at SFCC. In an e-mail sent out to UF administrators. Thursday, Provost Janie Fouke wrote that in order to respond to the request from the board, the State University System's highest governing body, UF would likely accept fewer transfer students this year. All freshmen and several graduate student admissions decisions have already been announced, Fouke wrote. And while UF awaits guidance from the board, the Florida Legislature and UF's Board of Trustees, the release of transfer-admissions decisions will be delayed until at least April 15.

By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdow@alligator.org UF's budget situation got brighter Thursday, at least for the near future. UF President Bernie Machen announced at a Faculty Senate meeting that UF's second round of budget cuts would be almost $5 million less than expected, and no academic departments would have to reduce their budgets. The cut, now $11.5 million instead of the previously announced $16 million, will come from UF's UF reserves, a pool S a of one-time funds separate from the university's budget. Bottom line: Students and faculty won't feel a thing, at least for now. Machen said all indications from the state Legislature and economic projections point to more cuts next year, maybe as high as $40 million to $50 million. The Legislature will determine next year's budget during its session in March. Earlier this year, UF cut $34 million from its budget. in January, the university learned it needed to trim $16 million more by July based on an estimate of what the Legislature would do in March. In a Thursday conference call, the Board of Governors, which oversees Florida's 11 public universities, announced that the Legislature's spring budget cut proposal is half as much as the board expected.

Thunder Storms 82/64 Senators make stop at Shands By LIA GANOSELLIS Alligator Writer eganosellis@alligator.org Florida's two U.S. senators pledged to look for ways to reduce financial burdens on health care providers in an appearance at Shands at UF on Thursday. Sen. Mel Martinez, a Republican from Orlando, and Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat from Orlando, stressed the bleak effect of Medicare budget cuts on Florida health care. Martinez said one of the system's biggest problems is Medicare fraud. He said people seem to ask for resources and money they don't need. "Florida is particularly a victim of this situation," he said. For example, Martinez said only about 8 percent of people with AIDS nationwide live in South Florida, yet 72 percent of all Medicare claims for HIV infusions come from that area. "Florida is particularly a victim of this situation." Mel Martinez U.S. senator In another case, a woman from Florida requested thousands of dollars for prosthetic limbs, but she wasn't an amputee, Martinez said. He said he proposed a bill to double the Medicare fraud penalty from five years in prison to 10 years, which made it through the U.S. Senate last week. Nelson said physicians' financial woes also result from Medicare reimbursement cuts. The 2007 bill extended Medicare and Medicaid by offering physicians a 0.5 percent reimbursement increase as opposed to a 10 percent reduction, but that increase will only last through June, Nelson said. "There has to be some reordering," he said. "The way not to do it is the way we do SEE SHANDS, PAGE 16 Foulke

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 3 Decal hikes may lessen Scooter decal prices, which were proposed last month to increase from $36 a year to $121, may now only rise to $64. The proposal, suggested by UP's Transportation and Parking Services, was amended after students voiced concerns, said Ron Fuller, the department's assistant director. The prices must be approved at the March meeting of the Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing body. Prices for all other decals could also rise by about 10 percent if the proposal is accepted. Fuller said the decal increases would fund campus parking maintenance, which costs almost $1 million a year, and a $23 million new garage next to the transportation department on Gale Lemerand Drive, scheduled to open in June 2009. The department relies solely on decal sales and parking ticket fees for its revenue, he said. Over the years, scooters costs have exceeded decal revenue. Because the popularity of scooters and motorcycles has grown, UF has had to provide better, larger parking locations for them on campus -renovations the department can't afford without decal hikes, Fuller said. In addition, he said the higher prices might decrease the amount of scooters ridden on campus, which currently poses a safety threat. "You put hundreds of scooters flying by Turlington at class time, and it's a big deal," he said. -KIM WILMATH $4 FRIDAYS $4 bud Light Pitchers $4 Jager Dombs SATURDAY 5 1702 W.

By ILEANA MORALES Alligator Writer imorales@alligator.org With UF Student Government elections just four days away, the three candidates from each party said Thursday night that they are poised to tackle tough issues, including campus transportation and online voting. Candidates from the Gator Party and the Orange and Blue Party spoke with about 50 students at a meet and greet hosted by the Hispanic Student Association. Frank Bracco, vice presidential candidate for the Orange and Blue Party, said Regional Transit System routes need to be improved. Yooni Yi, vice presidential candidate for the Gator Party, said SG is already working on a Global Positioning System, or GPS, for buses so students know when to expect buses to reach certain stops. Students also asked candidates if they agreed with the UF Supreme Court's Feb. 12 ruling of an online voting amendment as unconstitutional. Tommy Jardon, Student Body presidential candidate and president of Students for Online Voting, said denying an amendment suggests that the Student Body constitution can't be improved. Kevin Reilly, presidential candidate for the Gator Party, disagreed. Reilly said when SG starts "second guessing" the court, it undermines the court's authority, which could be Nicole Safker /Alligator Staff detrimental to SG's power in Florida. Student Body presidential candidate Tommy Jardon speaks to students "The Gator Party is old," he said.

4, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 Experts say increased recycling efforts not only solution By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagier@ailigator.org While both UF and the city continue to push recycling services, several experts say those types of programs might not be enough to make the necessary environmental impact. "Recycling is not bad in itself, but it is a distraction from the consumption of products and containers," said Allan L. Griff, a California-based engineering consultant, in a phone interview. "If you use nothing, that's the smallest carbon footprint of all," Griff said. Still, both the university and the city are continuing to expand recycling programs. On Feb. 1, Gainesville broadened its program to collect office paper and junk mail. Last December, the city offered ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATION B ST ANIMATED FEATURE sTA.

And this Wednesday and Thursday, Alachua County will offer businesses free recycling of electronics waste as the county's Environmental Protection Department and Office of Waste Alternatives kick off a new "escrap" program. Dale Morris, solid waste coordinator of UF's Physical Plant Department, said the university has recently instituted recycling programs at Gator Dining and is working to get more indoor recycling bins. The university is also competing in Recyclemania, a 10-week recycling contest among colleges. In pounds recycled per person, UF is currently 82nd out of 400 schools. Dedee DeLongpr6, UF's director of sustainability, said recycling is still better than throwing things away "If it goes in a landfill, it's not going anywhere," DeLongpre said. But recycling can't be the only answer, she said. People should also look for ways to reduce consumption, such as buying durable products that can be reused or boycotting those with excessive packaging, she said. "If something comes with a whole lot of packaging, I write a letter to the company and say, 'Why does it have to have 92 pieces of BLACK HISTORY MONTH COMEDY SHOW PRESENTS Vanessa Fraction FEATURED ON Arvin Mitchell BET's CoMic VIEW February 22, 2008 Grand Ballroom, 8pm C0-of m l ( R =Lj1 HONEYDRIPPER opens tonight at 7 & 9:1 Sat 4:30, 7 & 9:15 / Sun 2:30, 5 & 7:15 "One of John Sayles' best tilms."

Morris said the university itself is working on using fewer materials. For example, he said, purchasers are working with textbook companies to use textbook editions for a longer time, reducing wasted paper. "We still want to recycle what's out there, but we definitely believe in reuse," he said. Griff said he didn't think people will ever move past recycling and reduce their consumption. "You're dealing really with religious behavior," he said. But DeLongpre said she believes people who recycle are willing to do more. "People understand recycling," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 Editorial We hate to say it, but it's sometimes just easier to blame it all on the moon. Here at Darts & Laurels headquarters, we're seriously thinking that the lunar eclipse this Wednesday may be the only way to explain some of the crazy things happening here in Gainesville and halfway across the world. So if you're ready to leave this week behind,and you've braved the rain once again to make it to campus, we reward you with another week's edition of Darts &+8IeIsWe have to start by offering up the mandatory protectingthe-unborn-doesn't-require-exploiting-dead-fetuses DART to UF's Pro-Life Alliance for inviting the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform to our campus. If you were lucky enough to have missed it, the prominent mural on the Plaza of the Americas displayed images of aborted fetuses next to those from the Holocaust and Rwandan genocide as part of its bogus "Genocide Awareness Project." Rather than engage anyone in any productive debate about abortion, the project disgusted a majority of the passersby with its graphic photos and missed a real chance to promote its cause. If the Pro-Life Alliance really wanted to reach out to UF students, it could start by not using lurid, insulting photos to do it. On to more conservative offenses, we bestow a shouldn'tyou-be-arguing-about-failing-test-scores-instead DART to the State Board of Education for shying away from controversy this week. Qualifying the landmark decision to teach evolution -yes, even in 2008 -with the words "scientific theory" rather than a fact makes us question whether the separation of church and state is even applicable in the sunshine state. And as usual, students across the state are the ones who stand to lose the most. Educational standards were dealt yet another blow this week by our usually suave Gov. Charlie Crist. Our orangeglow governor earned himself a do-you-have-your-head-inthe-sand-when-you-get-that-tan DART when he said state universities should live within their means and be satisfied with his spending proposals, which include no tuition increase. At the conference with university presidents, he told the St. Petersburg Tunes that if "they're unhappy, maybe they ought to turn the reins over to somebody else." Way to be diplomatic, Charlie. Another group that could use a lesson or two in diplomacy is the irate Serbian protestors. When many nations recognized Kosovo as an independent country, the angry Serbians decided to set various embassies ablaze, including the American embassy in Belgrade. They earned themselves the maybe-youshouldn't-oppose-what-you-call-instability-by-starting-riots DART. Throwing rocks and breaking windows makes you look like petulant children, not a political force to be reckoned with. Just a thought, guys, just a thought. Finally, we can't help but pick on one of our inspirations with a this-is-why-Americans-blame-the-media-for-everything DART going out to The New York Times. We question the paper's decision Thursday to print what can only be described as lazy and irresponsible journalism with a story that could have wrongfully hurt the reputation of Sen. John McCain. The story detailed a possible affair with a lobbyist -who bears a creepy resemblance to Mrs. McCain if we do say so ourselves -from eight years ago. Th4t's right, eight years ago. Not only did the article have no news value and relied heavily on anonymous sources, it gave the Republican Party and its conservative base another reason to dismiss the paper.

Working out an hour a day for the next two weeks will not drastically change your body before Spring Break. For some reason or another, the concept of adopting pre-break workout regiments has become a popular notion on our campus. A lot of people have this idea that they can head to the gym today, for the first time in a few months, and their beer bellies will just evaporate into the dense Florida air. At this time of the year, the gyms usually begin to crowd with ambitious students who are all of a sudden determined to whip their bodies into shape. In fact, our collegiate gyms have even implemented a new set of group exercise classes to be enjoyed for the next two weeks. There's Tropical Total Body, Beach Bootcamp, Cancun Kickbox and a few other newly scheduled opportunities to "shape up" before the big bikini fest. This, of course, only adds to the chaos of campus workouts. You can't get into cycling classes without lining up 45 minutes in advance. And you can't use the squat machine without swapping repetitions with two other people. I call this overcrowded gym phenomenon March Madness. Oh, wait, that's already taken. I call it the prevacation Gator Nation. Two weeks prior to Spring Break, our motto changes slightly: The University of Florida is in Gainesville. The Gator Nation is on the elliptical. If your newfound love of the treadmill stems from how great you feel after your workout, then tread on, my friend. But don't kill yourself at Southwest Recreation Center every evening expecting your body to transform like a before-andafter ad for Hydroxycut. And definitely do'not stop eating. This seems to be a late February trend as well. Sure, we all want to look like pre-baby bump Jessica Alba when we slip into our suits. But in reality, it's unfortunately not going to happen, at least not before March 8. I'm certain Jessica didn't wait until 14 days before the filming of "Into The Blue" to work on those toned arms and rock-hard abs. And she most certainly consumes food like any other healthy human. For the record, yes, I have a femcrush on her. I'd love to hang out poolside with her. She's flawless. Her body is absolutely Cancun RN ready Carly Hallam This brings me to my next conletters@almtgator.arg cern. The pre-vacation Gator Nation is made up of the very same guys and gals who are at the Swamp Restaurant every night drinking pitcher after pitcher of Budweiser. If you want to get in shape, you may have to change more than the resistance on the StairMaster. We have to be cautious of what goes into our bodies as well. I am aware that many college students' daily diet consists of caramel lattes, bowls of ramen noodles and a six-pack of Bud Light. And I also know that socializing at the bar is a top priority in many peoples' lives -which is fine. I But for the record, a large amount of what you are consuming late at night completely reverses any positive effects your workout may have had on your figure. So if you want to devote yourself to a diet and exercise routine, that's great. But it needs to be an almost comprehensive lifestyle change. And remember that while many times results cannot be seen in 14 days, they can be felt almost immediately. And this should be more inspiration than an upcoming Mexican cruise anyway So dig those Nike sneakers out of the back of your dusty closet and join a few thousand of your closest friends at the Rec Center for that Cancun Kickbox class tonight. But only exercise if you are doing it to feel healthier and happier, and not to drop 10 pounds before March 8. Because folks, it's about as likely as Jessica Alba flopping down on the pool lounge chair next to me for a chat. Carly Hallant is an advertising senior. Her column appears on Fridays.

Not only is Kosovo illegal under Abortion is not the same as genocide The pro-life display this week on campus was the most insensitive thing I have ever witnessed. As a grandchild of Holocaust survivors, I am deeply offended by the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform and Pro-Life Alliance's attempt to compare the Holocaust with abortion. Upon seeing the gruesome display, I approached one of the group's representatives to ask her why they made this comparison. The representative told me the definition of "genocide" and asked me to determine if abortion met the criteria of the definition. I responded by saying that Hitler and the Nazis systematically tried to eliminate the Jews and other groups through a master plan. The Nazis built death camps capable of killing millions of people for the simple reason that they were Jewish, Catholic, handicapped, black, gypsy or political opponents. The representative then said abortion clinics are just like Nazi death camps but never had the ability to explain why. Pro-choice advocates are not shipping pregnant mothers in cattle cars to abortion clinics and eliminating their unbom babies. One can't compare the Holocaust to abortion -this parity would be calling the Supreme Court the Nazi Party. I had the opportunity to travel to Poland in 2004 to view the death camps at Auschwitz and Treblinka. The trip has forever changed the way I look at the world. Maybe these pro-life sensationalists should go to Poland or Rwanda before making inaccurate associations. Jonathan Mann 7AC Display allowed students to see truth In Thursday's editorial, the author wrote that the anti-abortion display set up by the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform "was, at best, insensitive and tasteless." Is it the display or the result depicted that is insensitive? How does this author have the audacity to call this group insensitive? They are giving a voice to those who can't speak. The editorial also states the display "turns off anyone who would be willing to ask a question." I find it interesting that this author assumes to be speaking for everyone. When I was looking at the pictures, I heard college students actually say things like, "That's really what abortion looks like?" Maybe if ignorant pro-choice people learned what abortion really looks like, then America would outlaw this form of murder. If you don't want to see the insensitive results in these pictures, don't look. And as you walk away, ask yourself, "Why do I not want to see the truth of abortion?" Maybe because to see the truth is to recognize one's conscience, and in today's world, a conscience is a barrier to our own selfish, materialistic endeavors. lenna Kilic 2BA TO GET THIS DEAL The Wireesl. isi I ile Ssuth wireless authorized agent 11~ L O n S 34thSt.In the Pubi Ctr, n son the corner of Wlitn & U34L BE YOJU M OTORAZR LL U/ 352 37841 R C/ 7 -A L S 3 5 -3 8 4 0 1 O V S (Comner of Williston & 34th St. in the Publix Shopping Centre) a SW, CANCER P R 0 J E C T Finally!

But because of the reduced cut this year, Edmonds said next year's could be worse. "The Legislature is burning up its savings this year, which leaves no cushion for the next," he wrote in an e-mail. To prepare for next year, Machen said every UF department must propose a plan to deal with a possible 6 percent cut, which would amount to about $40 million to $50 million. Machen In the long term, he said UF should rethink how it operates. Machen pointed to a consistent decline in UF's state support for the past 20 years. Machen said he would work with UF's chief financial officer and ask other universities, especially private institutions, how they manage without strong state support. "It's chilling," he said. "We get our money from the state, and we _7ipend it. It's a fair conclusion to me that that model doesn't work anymore, if it ever worked." dressed the issue Thursday at a UF Faculty Senate meeting. "We're going to have transfers," Machen said. "The questions is, can we take as many as we have historically taken?" "We are by far the largest source of students for the University of Florida. We are woven into the same fabric." Lawrence Keen assistant to the SFCC president Richard Wooley, a second-year SFCC student, said if the number of transfer students admitted to UF is cut back, he might it now -with this constant nailbiting over whether you're going to be reimbursed." Nelson and Martinez ended their 20-minute talk offering praise for UF and Shands. "We're so proud of the University of Florida, and we're so proud of Shands and what you do for Floridians," Martinez said, adding that Shands once treated his sister. Tim Flynn, associate dean of graduate medical education and a professor of surgery at UF, said he thought the senators tackled a lot of important issues, particularly the financial problems. "We, as physicians, get frustrated when we can't provide the care we'd like to," Flynn said. have wasted a lot of time. Wooley said he transferred to SFCC from the University of Central Florida last semester to increase his chance of being accepted to UP. "I changed my whole life to be here and try to go to UF," he said. "Everything I've done since October could be for nothing." Katelyn Witsell, a first-year SFCC student, said students shouldn't rely on just one university to accept them but added a reduction in transfer student admissions would be a cause for concern for her, although she doesn't plan on transferring to UF until 2009. "By then, it might be a total mess and impossible to get in," Witsell said. Alligator writer Deborah Swerdlow contributed to this report. THE MOLD.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 M ALLIGATOR, 17 Gators look forward to facing real opponents INFIELD, from page 18 knew. They gave me a lot of knowledge. And as time has passed, I've been able to adjust and get into the right frame of mind." Sophomore Cole Figueroa, who hit 11 home runs and drove in 50 runs last year, returns as the starting shortstop. Senior Jon Townsend will be at third base, where he started 40 games last year. Sophomore Hampton Tignor is slated to open the season at catcher. The biggest hurdle for the Gators may be establishing cohesion. Though most of them have played multiple games together, Townsend feels there is still room to grow, especially for a team with just five seniors. It's here that the late start to the season will help the Gators the most. "We have a lot of young guys that are going to have to step up and play," Townsend said. "It's like that everywhere, but that definitely helped us out. The only way to get completely comfortable with each other is by playing other teams, but obviously practice time helps everyone get more cohesive as a group. It helps us all learn our roles." Though scrimmages and practices may help build team chemistry, the Gators are itching to play an opponent who isn't Baseball wearing orange and blue. "It's been a long offseason," Townsend said. "It's been a long wait. We're tired of beating up on each other. We've used the practice days to fine-tune our skills as much as we can, but I just want to get out and play. I can't remember the last time I was this excited to start a season." Den Dekker returns in center to lead outfielders OUTFIELD, from page 18 "I don't consider myself slow, but they can fly," Pigott said. Den Dekker, the Gators' center fielder, comes back from a season that also saw him selected to the SEC All-Freshman team. He will be the outfield's leader both vocally and diving for catches. "Matt's going to be a great leader for us in center field," Barnes said. "Yeah, he's young, but he got a lot of experience as a freshman. We're relying on him to kind of just be Elf j4Aod 11 A I LI I FLi filL 'If our backbone out there, keeping us straight, letting us know what we have to do." Among returning players, he had the second-most home runs (seven) 4 den Dekker in 2007 as well as the second-most steals (five). "Matt's definitely a great asset," Pigott said. "He can cover ground like anyone. "I played next to him last year, and I'm looking forward to it again this year." If the young outfielders need to work on anything, Barnes said it's their play as a Unit. Only den Dekker started more than 10 games in his current position in 2007. Once the season starts, their trust in each other will grow even if the situations are intense. They will also welcome a newcomer. O'Sullivan said Thursday that Riley Cooper, a receiver for the UF football team, will join the squad as an outfielder. ead Coac wn van Toledo's potential high PITCHING,from page 18 pitchers didn't hurt either. "He told me he was going to help me with a lot of different stuff this year," Toledo said. "He said he'd help me develop a couple more pitches, and I felt that I needed to get a little bit bigger." O'Sullivan sees a lot of potential in Toledo but warns that the team can't be dependent on any one pitcher. "You can't rely on one or two guys," O'Sullivan said. "I've played this schedule multiple times; I'm used to it. It's not a oneor two-guy deal. It's an eightor nine-guy deal. We're going to need eight or 10 reallygood pitchers." A big adjustment for the Gators' staff, which posted a woeful 5.27 ERA last season, will be getting used to catcher Hampton Tignor making the calls. The pitchers will be allowed to shake off his signals, but it is still a change for them. "It's been a learning process," closer Josh Edmondson said. "We've all got to be learning the hitters' different tendencies. "It's going to be a challenge, but it'll be a plus in the long rn." The Gators' pitching style willoalso change this season. O'Sullivan wants a faster-paced, more aggressive style that will hopefully leave UF ahead in the count as often as possible. Improved play from the staff will be the key ingredient to improving on last season's 29-30 record. "If there's one question on this team, it's pitching,' O'Sullivan said. "I've been pretty outspoken about it. We're pretty good, but we're not.there yet." If what happened on yoUr inside happened on your outside, would you still smoke? Learn not to burn.

S F 22 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Infield shuffles to fill LaPorta's spot E BRANDON MCARTHUR WILL REPLACE THE SLUGGER AT FIRST BASE. By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer khyppolite@alligator.org It's never easy replacing a legend. Luckily for the Gators, first baseman Brandon McArthur doesn't expect to. The senior only hopes to serve as an adequate replacement for Matt LaPorta at first base, not the 20 home runs LaPorta slammed last season. "LaPorta was obviously a big-time offensive player for us," McArthur said. "But it took guys getting on base for him. We're taking a whole different aspect, we have a lot of speed and we've learned how to hit in various ways. One guy's not going to replace him." The Gators, with speed all over their lineup, figure to transition well into a "small-ball" type of offense. The biggest adjustment they face is McArthur's move from second and third base, where he's played his entire career, to first. His teanunates expect the switch to be smooth. "He's a real intelligent guy," sophomore second baseman Clayton Pisani said. "He picks things up quickly, and he's athletic enough to play anywhere. He used to play middle infield and did a great job there. It takes a different skill set to play at first, but he's looked great." McArthur, who missed all but one game last season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, admits that the change was difficult initially, but he has adjusted to his new role. "When I made the adjustment in the fall, there were a lot of new things to learn," McArthur said. "The coaching staff was a big help teaching me everything they SEE INFIELD, PAGE 17 Alligator File Photo UF sophomore shortstop Cole Figueroa was the Gators' second-leading hitter behind Matt LaPorta last season. UF EAEA1 Speedy outfielders provide Gators a spark By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@alligator.org If UT's strength this season is going to be speed, the outfield may be the first place people look:, The trio of Avery Barnes, Matt den Dekker and Jonathoan Pigott combined for 13 of the team's 25 stolen bases last season among returning players. With new coach Kevin O'Sullivan, expect the team's total to increase and those three to take on the brunt of the larger load. "We definitely have a quick outfield," Barnes said. "With that, we're going to do our best to try to make plays for our pitchers in the outfield." Barnes, a junior left fielder coming off an Academic All-Southeastern Conference year, will bat leadoff this season. The Gators will rely on Barnes' speed to get him on base early and often, as well as to make up ground in the outfield. "Being quick kind of helps you make up for some mistakes." Avery Barnes UF junior left fielder "You definitely have a little bit more room for error," Barnes said. "Being quick kind of helps you make up for some mistakes." Barnes hit .293 last season, a .066 increase from his freshman campaign, and hopes to adjust to the outfield after playing most of last season at second base. "I love Avery in the leadoff spot," O'Sullivan said. "He's a pain in the butt. I mean, he'll slash a ball to the shortstop's right, he'll roll the ball to the second baseman's left, and he's got.some power. He's reckless -he's got no fear of failure on the base path. Our offense is going to start with him." Pigott, a sophomore right fielder, was spread around the field last season. He started 26 games in the outfield but only 10 in right. Still, he feels comfortable in that position and is coming off a selection to the SEC All-Freshman team. Pigott hit .260 with 14 RBI last year, including a 2-for-2 performance in his first college game on Feb. 9, 2007 against Virginia Military Institute. He said he's the slowest of the outfielders. SEE OUTFIELD, PAGE 17 Mullaney leads UF pitchers By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer khyppolite@aligator.org The rise of Kyle Mullaney is in full effect. The sophomore, who spent most of last season in the bullpen before ending the season as the Gators' Friday night starter, begins the season as the ace of UP's staff. Mullaney was 4-2 with a 4.25 ERA and five starts last season. The right-hander, knowing there would be more pressure on him this season, spent the off-season developing a cbangeup he feels makes him a much more dangerous pitcher. Mullaney Baseball is hoping the change-up will be a strong change of pace from his fastball and curveball. "If you want to start, you have to have three pitches that you can throw for strikes," Mullaney said. "Now that I do that, I think I'll be a lot more affective." Coach Kevin O'Sullivan, who has a strong pedigree as a pitching coach, helped Mullaney develop his changeup throughout the off-season and said Mullaney "would not be starting Friday if he didn't have three pitches." Junior Patrick Keating, who appeared in 21 games last season, will be the Gators' Saturday night starter. Freshman phenom Tommy Toledo will start on Sundays. Toledo was chosen in the third round of the MLB draft last year by the San Diego Padres. Toledo spent the summer mulling his options but ultimately decided he needed a bit more seasoning before he joined the professional ranks. O'Sullivan's history with SEE PITCHING.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 19 Freshman Bruder contributes in utility role for UF 0 UNDEFEATED UF WILL PLAY FIVE GAMES THIS WEEKEND. By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@aliator.org No. 1 in your hearts, No. 2, No. 33, No. 13, or No. 11 in your program. The jerseys freshman utility player Kelsey Bruder has worn so far this season read like the winning lucky-program numbers announced in between innings at Pressly Stadium. "[Coach Tim Walton] just says, 'Your jerseys aren't in yet. Here's a medium, wear it,"' Bruder said. The lefty, listed as No. 2 in the media guide, has begun to show versatility not just in her number, but in her game. In the Cox Communications Classic last weekend, Bruder came in against College of Charleston and earned her first college victory, pitching three scoreless and surrendering only one hit. She is part of the reason why the No. 7 Gators (14-0) have enjoyed early success. On Friday, UF will look to continue that success in the Aquafina Invitational, as it hosts Gardner-Webb and North Florida before facing Notre Dame on Saturday. Walton said at the beginning of the season that Bruder and freshman Kristen Adkins would be the third and fourth pitchers in the Gators' staff. While pitchers don't normally hit in softball, Bruder has found her way into the starting lineup as the designated player in each of the last two contests. "I love both of them, it's really hard to say," she said when asked whether she likes pitching or hitting better. "But I think I might be a little more partial to hitting." After struggling through her first few at-bats, Bruder recorded her first hit as a Gator on Sunday when she rocketed a double into right field, scoring a run. "I was putting so much pressure on myself," she said of her slow start. "I had a talk with Coach, and I feel like I'm getting much better at-bats now." Bruder, who is from Corona, Calif., and attended UC-Santa Barbara for the fall semester, has plenty of support from old friends as she adapts to the higher level of softball. Second baseman Aja Paculba and third baseman Shaunice Harris are from the same part of California as Bruder, and the three played on a travel team coached by Bruder's mom. Paculba and Harris helped convince Bruder to attend UF. "Aja and Shaunice, I've played with them since I was 10. I talked to them and they said they loved it here," Bruder said. i garrison uiamona / Aigaxor biarr UF softball player Kelsey Bruder swings during the Gators' 5-0 win against Hofstra on Wednesday at Pressly Stadium. UF GYMNASTICS Goodwin's return leads Gators' improved bars lineup By BOBBY CALLOV Alligator Writer bcaIlov@alligator.org The Gators may have finally found the solution to their uneven bars problem. After the first meet of the season, No. 3 UF (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) hadn't been able to put together a championship score in the event. Then came Friday's meet against LSU when Coach Rhonda Faehn decided to return freshman Alicia Goodwin to the lineup for the first time since the opening meet. Goodwin led UF with the highest opening score of the season (9.875), and the team only continued to improve from there, finishing with the third-highest bars total in school history. Faehn had Goodwin compete in exhibitions in the five meets between her two performances to gain more experience and heal an ankle injury. "She did start out great at the beginning of the year but then struggled just a little bit," Faehn said. "She became timid and not as aggressive, and we really wanted to give her more opportunities to kind of feel her way in. She needed to learn a little bit of ,-aehn a lesson about how you train in the gym is how you are going to perform in the meet." The decision to put Goodwin back in the lineup came after she showed more consistency in her workouts and more confldence in her exhibitions in recent weeks. Her hard work was evident in Friday's meet as she put together a strong routine, and Faehn will look for the newcomer to continue to get better with her newfound knowledge. "If she just continues in that path of training well, she will have a great opportunity to be in our lineup," Faehn said. Goodwin needs to use Friday's upcoming meet at North Carolina and the Gators' two other remaining regular-season competitions to get valuable practice for championship*meets in a little more than a month. "I trust Alicia that in the more repetitions she does with beautiful bar swing and great form and execution, I will feel confident she will be able to take on (a leadoff) role," Faehn said. New coach's arrival prompts predictions of program's revival O'SULLIVAN, from page 24 freshman again," McArthur said. "This team is going to the top. .(O'Sullivan is) going to be our Urban Meyer who's going to make sure we're competitive every year." O'Sullivan's transition didn't come without at least one rocky patch. Former Gators catcher Cody Neer announced he was transferring to Nebraska in December amid speculation that he wasn't happy with the new coaching staff. While the team refuses to get into specifics, it appears they're happier without him. "There were a couple guys who weren't able to hop onto it and get the gist of it," McArthur said, "and fortunately they're not here right now." Brothers O'Sullivan spent nine successful seasons as an assistant coach at Clemson. The Tigers compiled a 403-194 during that span and had 29 players selected in the MLB draft. But O'Sullivan wanted more. While he says he never went out and looked for jobs, he admits he was ready to listen to any offers. In early July, UF Athletics Director Jeremy Foley picked up the phone and asked O'Sullivan if he was interested in the Gators' suddenly vacant head coaching position. -It was an opportunity he couldn't turn down. O'Sullivan was named UF's new baseball coach on June 14. When the time came for him to decide who would comprise his coaching staff only two names came to nind -Brad Weitzel and Craig Bell. You'd be hard pressed to find many people who know O'Sullivan better than them. Weitzel coached O'Sullivan and Bell in the 1980s. Though they were only together for a short time, the relationships they built were lasting. O'Sullivan credits Weitzel with his basic coaching philosophies. "He's taken things that I taught them and using them," Weitzel said. "He's taken them, used them and been successful with them. I'm very happy with that." Weitzel admits that working alongside O'Sullivan for more than 20 years after le coached him forms an interesting dynamic. "I feel like his big brother," Weitzel said. "I feel like his uncle. He leans on me for a lot of stuff outside of baseball." Because there is so much mutual respect between the coaching staff, O'Sullivan has made an effort to have all three remain an integral part of the decision-making. O'Sullivan works with the pitchers, Bell spends time with the fielders and Weitzel focuses on hitting. But all three accept suggestions and aid each other. O'Sullivan is clearly the leader of the group though. His colleagues saw those leadership qualities early on. "This team is going to the top. .(O'Sullivan is) going to be our Urban Meyer who's going to make sure we're competitive every year." Brandon McArthur UF senior first baseman "He's the kind of guy where you can see it right away," Bell said. "He was a good player because he always knew what the other guys were supposed to do. He was always real demanding with the pitchers. He's got leadership skills." Picking up the Pieces The shards of the Gators' broken baseball program still haven't been picked up. While everyone agrees hiring O'Sullivan is a step in the right direction, there is still a lot of work to be done. O'Sullivan was hired largely because of his reputation as a great pitching coach. He'll earn every penny if he's able to turn around a UF pitching staff that posted a woeful 5.27 ERA last year. O'Sullivan's plan is to drastically change the team's approach to pitching. And he'll have some baby pit bulls on his hands if successful. "Our pitchers are going to be very aggressive," he said. "We want to attack hitters and make them hit balls out of the park. We're going to get after guys, and we don't want to walk a lot of guys. We're not going to be afraid of contact." The Gators appear to have adjusted well to O'Sullivan's style. The pitchers have received rave reviews throughout preseason practices, highlighted by improved play from sophomore Kyle Mullaney and the emergence of freshman hurler Tommy Toledo. Few outside of Gainesville give UF much of chance this season, citing the loss of slugger Matt LaPorta and youth throughout the lineup. Don't tell Weitzel that though -he Miticipates a swift return to national prominence. "I have expectations to get right in the middle of it right now," he said. "That's my expectation. My expectation is we're going to do everything we can to get a ring on our finger." O'Sullivan's story at UF has yet to be inked. But if his mentor's feelings are correct, it will be an epic, passionate tale.

The next thing he remembered was Nov. 23. He missed out on a tad less than a month of his life. Life-saving brain surgeries on back-to-back days, a druginduced three-day coma and an extended stay in the Intensive Care Unit at Shands at UF left him forgetting how to walk, talk, eat or tie his shoes. He even forgot things that happened before the accident, including meeting his new teammates.

RIGHT McArthur is charged with replacing UF's alltime leading slugger, Matt LaPorta, at first base. Of course, the new injury -after two years of contributing to the team -was serious enough to sideline him for the year. "Unbelievable," Bullock said. "My reaction was, 'Can he catch a break?"' Tommy John surgery, where doctors remove a ligament from the player's wrist or hamstring and place it in the elbow, requires rehab and additional time off. McArthur compared the rehab to playing in Pee Wee Baseball again. First, he could slowly hit balls off a tee. Then, he moved up to soft throws. Next was batting practice, and finally he saw real pitching again. He did not rush, sitting out the entire 2007 season even if he thought he could have returned toward the end of the year. Having the surgery ended his season, but it also allowed him to come back completely healthy this season. "I knew my career wasn't over," McArthur said. "I knew I wasn't done playing the game of baseball. Knowing that I was able to overcome that first one, I had a pretty good idea that I'was going to be able to come back stronger from this last one." It's remarkably easy to talk to McArthur about both injuries, a subject you would think would provoke unease and brief responses. His eyes focus on the batting practice in front of him, -' 1<

out brightly against the rest of his scalp. The scars -from where doctors removed 5 percent of his brain -tell a story about the night of Oct. 30, 2003, when McArthur, then a freshman, was sucker-punched from behind by a stranger outside the Grog House. He fell to the ground and cracked his head open on the sidewalk, rendering him unconscious. "It was just another regular night out on the town," Atter McArthur recishirted his trestnman year with his head injury, tearing a ligament in his right arm was a relatively small deal. His UCL popped during a throw to first base from third on a routine ground ball during the 2007 opener. "This one was a lot easier because I had been through that first rehab," he said. "This to me seemed like a hangnail. That was all this was." After playing just one game in 2007, McArthur hopes to make his senior season a memorable one. uJ. 1ma voUie Is cdliii yet passioiraLe. rie tooKs away irom the batting and into your eyes to emphasize a point. "Quite honestly, I've accepted the fact that I've been able to move on," McArthur said. "God has blessed me enough to get the chance to come out here and play again. I can either regret the past, or I can accept it and move on." Back in the Game And move on he has. The torn ligament? That's in the past. The head injury? That's been settled in court. A jury awarded McArthur $12.8 million in September. "[McArthur's attacker] won't be able to go get a credit card, or he won't be able to go apply easily to places without having people ask him, 'Well, why is this on your background check?' or 'Why is this on your credit?"' Bullock said. "It's going to remind him. Brandon has to take medication every day, which reminds him. Plus, when he takes a shower or washes his hair, that reminds him. It was just profound that the jury awarded him as much as they did and that [the attacker is] going to have that on his record for the rest of his life." McArthur has no idea how much of that $12.8 million he will see, but the money is the last thing on his mind. His focus is on his senior season. Everyone on the team praises how intensely McArthur has been training to get ready for the new season. "He's really worked very, very hard to get to where he is," said senior pitcher Josh Edmondson, one of five left who took part in the College World Series with McArthur in 2005. "We're all inspired by him." A new coaching staff led by Kevin O'Sullivan has the team training harder than ever. McArthur is at the center of it all. "It just speaks volumes of what type of kid he is," O'Sullivan said. "I know there's not a day that goes that by that we don't feel really, really happy for him, and we're anxious to get him out there and have him play just about every game out there and just get some rewards for all the time and effort he put in to come back." But perhaps the best example of McArthur's dedication to the team comes not from others' praise but from a meaningless game. On Feb. 6, in an intrasquad scrimmage with his team down five runs in the last inning, McArthur hit a bloopsingle into right field. Instead of stopping at first, he rounded the corner and sped toward second after noticing the right fielder bobbling the ball. He hustled all the way to second base, sliding into the bag and coming up with dirt on his pants. What causes that much exertion in such an unimportant game? It comes from having missed so much and learning not to take baseball for granted. "I don't ever want to give up a day," McArthur said. "I don't ever want to give up a chance to do something positive." Not only will he have to adjust to playing again, but he's now a leader on the team and replacing former UF great Matt LaPorta at first base. He's already showing signs of leadership. At the O'Connell Center on Wednesday night, baseball players filed onto the court during a break in the men's basketball game. McArthur held the microphone and addressed the crowd, proclaiming that the Gators would do better than fifth in the Southeastern Conference East, their predicted finish. He'll get his opportunity to prove the doubters wrong on Friday, with UF kicking off its season against Siena. It will be an emotional day for Bullock, who will travel the familiar 128 miles from Seffner in a motor home the family bought to share in McArthur's final year. It took Bullock a full day to find the words to describe how she'll feel when McArthur takes the field again. "Blessed. Honored. Proud. And grateful," she said. "His work ethic and his commitment to make the starting lineup just blew me away when I started reflecting back. I've sat back and taken it as a given, but really none of it should be a given." That he played at all in 2005 after nearly dying is remarkable. This year, McArthur has a season similar to his first comeback year in mind, when UF went to the College World Series. "I want to leave this place the way that we left in '05 when we had such great support from around Gainesville," he said. "That's how I want it to be." If anyone can come back from a season-ending injury, it's McArthur. Anything is easier than the first time. Gators look to regain championship form, open with Siena By EVAN DREXLER Alligator Staff Writer edrexler@aIHgator.org Omaha? That's so three years ago. Matt LaPorta and Brian Leclerc? They're long gone. Coach Pat McMahon? He's yesterday's news. Forget everything you've known about the UF baseball team from the last three years. Starting Friday, it's a whole new era. Coach Kevin O'Sullivan and the Gators kick off the 2008 season at 6:30 p.m. against Siena, ushering in a wave of change in the hopes of correcting UF's epitome-of-mediocrity 57-58 record since losing in the finals of the 2005 College World Series. "I'm just looking forward to this whole new style of playing," senior first baseman Brandon McArthur said. McArthur said the coaches are "locked and loaded," having the players train harder than they ever have in anticipation of getting results on the field. "A lot of people talk about Florida and where they used to be. It's going to be totally different," McArthur said. O'Sullivan and his mostly young squad -only five of the 34 players are seniors and 20 are freshmen or sophomores -are more than ready for the season to start. "Everyone's really excited around here," sophomore shortstop Cole Figueroa said. "Not just myself. The coaches, the staff, all the players just can't wait to get going." The Gators have been waiting longer than usual after the NCAA imposed a Feb. 22 start date for all teams. They are usually playing in the first two weeks of the month. Instead, they've had no competition but themselves so far. "We're tired of beating up on each other," senior third baseman Jon Townsend said. "We want to play against somebody else. It's a long off-season." Townsend compared March 14 against Auburn. O'Sullivan will hand the ball to Kyle Mullaney in the season opener, trusting the sophomore to handle Friday night starts. Mullaney (4-2, 4.25 ERA in 2007) found out he's starting by looking at a pitching schedule in the clubhouse Tuesday afterhis anticipation to that noon. of his senior year in high "I'm really looking forward to it," school. He's thrilled to Mullaney said. "It's going to be a lot of fun. get started, but there's also the knowledge that this is his final year. "It's a weird sort of Townsend excitement," Townsend said. "It's almost an anxiety to it. .I want it to be as good as it possibly can be." Siena is just the start of UF's hectic schedule, with 14 games in 19 days before Southeastern Conference play starts on .It's a privilege, and I'm going to pitch as best I can for the team." Mullaney will face Siena junior Craig Chaput on the mound. Chaput had a teamhigh 72 imiings pitched in 13 games last year. The Gators hold an 8-0 record all time against Siena. The teams last met in 2003 with UF winning 5-4. Siena, unlike UF, is a mature team. The Saints return allnine position starters from last season and have eight seniors and seven juniors. "I'm definitely looking forward to a very polished team," Figueroa said. "We cannot take them lightly at all." The teams round out the series on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at noon. Junior Patrick Keating (3-2, 5.79 ERA in 2007) will get the start on Saturday and freshman Tommy Toledo (9-2, 1.01 ERA as a high school senior) will go Sunday All three UF starters in the series are righthanded. It's the season's first contest for Siena as well, so don't expect the Saints to lie down. "It should be a good, competitive opening weekend," Townsend said. "Siena's definitely going to compete its butts off."

24, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2008 OpIening Pitch O.'Sullivan brings new attitude By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer khyppolite@alligator.org The Kevin O'Sullivan story almost never was. In 1991, the first-year UF baseball coach fournhimself at a fork in the road. He could continue to pursue a career in baseball -his passion since he was 7 years old -or he could play it safe. O'Sullivan, who earned a bachelor's degree in education and sports medicine from Virginia, also mulled over attending medical school. (He also got a master's in exercise and wellness science at FAU in 1995.) in the end, he chose passion. "It's hard to give up," O'Sullivan said. "Everyone's playing days come to an end. But I wasn't ready to give up my days in the baseball side of things. It was a pretty easy decision and it's worked out well so far." Not surprising for a guy the Gators describe as a pit bull. The Pit Bull O'Sullivan chuckles every time the nickname that has followed him for nearly 20 years is mentioned. "I don't know about that," he said. "I think I'm just a guy who works hard. I work hard at everything I do." His laid-back, self-effacing demeanor reminds you more of a proud lion than a grunting, growling pit bull. That is, until he's in a game situations. That's when his other side comes out. You can see it during scrimmages. He sits in a chair placed in front of the dugout with his arms folded, staring intently at the play on the field. He barks instructions at his players throughout the session, his energy and intensity filling McKethan Stadium. The Gators appear to be slowly taking on his personality, as if he's imparting a piece of himself into them. O'Sullivan does give a lot of himself. He pours himself into his team because it's the UF first-year baseball coach Kevin O'Sullivan will try to rejuvenate a pitching staff that posted a 5.27 ERA last season. /low stay up to date with the latest sports news only thing he knows. And he expects the same in return. "I think the kids feed off of a coach's personality," O'Sullivan said. "And you've got to demand a lot if you're going to get a lot. If you expect things to be done a certain way, the end result is going to be that." O'Sullivan is expecting a lot out of these Gators, even if no one else is. After two substandard seasons, the days of championship contention are nothing more than a distant memory. Last week, UF was picked to finish fifth in the Southeastern Conference East in the preseason coaches' poll. Only six players remain that took part in the 2005 College World Series, and UF hasn't made it back to the NCAA Tournament since. These tidbits mean little to the Gators. O'Sullivan's confidence in his players breeds confidence within them. In his first meeting with his new team, O'Sullivan told the players he would never coach a cellar dweller "Right off the bat he told us we weren't going to finish in last place," senior first baseman Brandon McArthur said. "He said they've never coached a last-place team before and he won't be coaching a last-place team as long as we put in the work." Putting inthe workis the mantra O'Sullivan lives his life by He admits that he was unable to continue his career as a player because he simply didn't have big-league talent. But that didn't keep him from having a successful career at Virginia, capped off by being named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference's first team as a catcher in 1991 -ahead of Boston Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek. O'Sullivan is working to instill that same work ethic in the Gators, and they've responded. UF quickly embraced O'Sullivan and his differences from former coach Pat McMahon. Though McMahon was beloved by his players, the common sentiment among them is that a change was needed, and they'll shout from the mountaintops that O'Sullivan is the right man for the job. "This new coaching staff focuses on being perfect on every rep," pitcher Josh Edmondson said. "Not just okay on some and good on others, perfect on every rep. Every throw has to be perfect, every bunt, every pitch." McArthur is so excited he wishes he could turn back time. "I've told so many people I wish I was a SEE O'SULLIVAN, PAGE 19 16"10 1 V, U N0W S NG 1i -, Sign a lease y gineb. 2 vth aied receive, $Ja 352-373-79.59 coltagegroveakgain es Ville, Coln
