Haridopolos change proposed
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
To appease students, faculty and staff who
may have questioned UF's hiring of state Sen.
Mike Haridopolos as a lecturer, a former state
representative proposed Tuesday to pay for
Haridopolos' UF salary with private money.
Bob Casey, who served in the Florida House
of Representatives from 1992 to 2000 representing
Alachua County, said he would collect private
donations to fund a one-year "legislator-in-resi-
dence" position at the university. Casey said he
would write a check for $1,000 to get the ball
On Feb. 11, Haridopolos, a Republican from
Melbourne, accepted a $75,000 offer to lecture in
UF's political science department and coordinate
student internships at the Bob Graham Center for
UF faculty responded with concerns about
Haridopolos' qualifications, a lack of faculty con-
sultation and a potential conflict of interest posed
by UF paying an active politician.
By using private funds instead of UF money,
Casey said he hopes to ease the concerns.
"For the university to pay him $75,000, I see
some problems with that, and I think that would
be wrong," he said. "I think private funding
would be a better approach."
Casey said he discussed his idea with "a very
important individual in town" who is "well-
known throughout The Gator Nation."
He said he couldn't name the individual, but
the two will meet today to hammer out the details
of the proposal.
Haridopolos and UF President
. -Casey, who said he first
jj,.. encouraged Haridopolos to
get involved in politics nearly
10 years ago, said he hopes the
Haridopolos senator will be the first legisla-
tor in the new position.
He said whoever takes the position would
need to be in Tallahassee for legislative sessions.
In that case, Casey said he and other local former
legislators would probably be willing to step in
and perform the UF duties, maybe even free of
Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said he hadn't
heard about Casey's plan and didn't want to com-
ment on it without knowing all the details.
UF posts budget FAQ
To set the record straight about
the budget situation, UF created a
frequently asked questions page
on its Web site on Monday.
The 18 questions and answers
can be accessed through UF
President Bernie Machen's page
The questions address basic
facts, such as the sizes of previous,
current and upcoming budget cuts
and other controversial issues, in-
cluding Machen's nearly $300,000
bonus last fall and rumors of dis-
proportionate cuts to UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes
said users would be able to post
questions as early as today and
"for sure by the end of the week."
Individual questions will be
forwarded to appropriate depart-
ments and answered within about
a week, Sikes said.
UF cut $34 million from its
budget last semester and trimmed
another $11.5 million this semester.
UF will learn about future budget
cuts when the state Legislature
starts its session in March.
Administration told each
partment to prepare for a potential
6 percent budget reduction, which
would amount to about $40 to $50
Sikes said UF would try to
update the site as the Legislature
adjusts the budget.
"We're still unclear as to what
they're going to cut for this se-
mester," she said. "We don't know
what the forecast is going to be for
next fiscal year starting July 1, so
things could change that quickly."

UF administrator pushes for student assessments
Assessments would be unique for each college
By BRADLEY GOLDBACH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Colleges at UF may start as-
sessing students' learning so pro-
spective employers have a better
understanding of graduates'
preparation in their intended
The U.S. Secretary of
Education's Commission on
the Future of Higher Education
recommended in 2006 that uni-
versities across the nation be
clearer to the public about what
students have learned when they
graduate. As a result, over the
past year, the UF administration
has been developing a system
that would assess students, said
Daniel Wubah, associate provost
for undergraduate affairs at UF.
"If you cannot demonstrate
that you have impacted students,
then what good is their diplo-
*ma?" Wubah said.
Wubah was previously
employed at James Madison
University, where assessment
was an integral part of the cur-
At JMU, class would be can-
celled once per semester in or-
der to assess all of the students,
Currently at UF, each class
specifies certain skills students
are supposed to gain with the
completion of the class. However,
the outcomes are vague and dif-
ficult to measure, Wubah said, so
one goal is to specifically define
these in a way that. is measur-
"We need to go in and tweak
the standards to make sure the
students learn what they need to
be learning," he said.
Each college will develop its
own assessment practices so the
dorm will not
be taken away
from the faculty,
es have already
Wubah issue with the
use of accreditation, in which a
consultation team certifies that
the college is meeting assessment
Once a college has gone
through the consultation pro-
cess, it must maintain accredita-
tion standards relative to a peer
group, said John Kraft, dean
of the Warrington College of
Business Administration. Schools
are ranked within these peer
groups and must continuously
improve and innovate upon
The system is successful, but
there are still a few improve-
ments that could be made. Kraft
said one improvement he would
like to develop is a better pre-
and post-screening process to see
what skills students come to col-
lege with and to make sure they
leave with all the requisite skills
for their degree.
"You have to make sure what
you are meeting for the degree is
as advertised," he said.
Another career tool that
could assist students is the use
of an occupational personnel
questionnaire, according to Dale
Campbell, professor of educa-
tional administration and policy
Large companies use ques-
tionnaires to determine if pro-
spective employees are a good
fit, Campbell said. Those who .
don't achieve a certain score
do not qualify for an interview.
Colleges can start using the test
to make sure students are acquir-
ing the skills that employers are
It is one option compared to
standardized testing, which may
not be the best tool for learning
assessment, Campbell said.
"It's a high-stakes industry
and a very profitable industry,"
he said. "The best utilization,

pared to others can make a dif-

'Juicy' site draws controversy
By JEREMY FIELDS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Making defamatory statements in a news-
paper can get a person sued for libel.
Making them on JuicyCampus.com, how-
ever, is risk-free.
The Web site's message boards allow users
to post gossip. Nearly 60 campuses have a sec-
tion on the site, and UF students started mak-
ing posts in January.
It has been a source of controversy, with
both students and faculty around the country
criticizing it for its malicious content, according
to a recent Associated Press article.
no personal information is collected directly
from the user. Anonymity is guaranteed be-
cause the site lacks any registration require-
ments to post messages.
Justin Brown, a professor who teaches
courses in telecommunication law, said this
isn't the first site to bring up the controversy
surrounding Internet anonymity.
Web sites have been protected from the po-
tentially libelous comments of their users since
the Communications Decency Act was passed
in 1996, Brown said.
"Hopefully we can come to under-
stand that information isn't coming
from a credible source."
UF telecommunication professor
The act establishes that providers of online
services cannot be treated as the publisher or
speaker of information provided by an outside
source, such as a user comment.
"Hopefully we can come to understand
that information isn't coming from a credible
source," he said.

Students should vote
'no' on Iraq question
The students that actually took the time to cast their
ballots on the first day of the Student Government
elections were met with some confusing and seem-
ingly out-of-nowhere questions in the form of referenda
and a constitutional amendment.
The student body had to decide where to connect the ar-
rows - but that's a whole other problem - next to some
pretty poorly constructed options.
If you have yet to receive your SG (not the previously
banned "I Voted") sticker, we're going to attempt to clear up
some of the uncertainty or at least give it our best shot.
The first referendum question seemed pretty straightfor-
ward at first glance. In asking whether UF should denounce
the invasion and continued occupation of Iraq, it seeks to
determine whether students are for or against the war.
But, in that effort, it turned off students who wouldn't
necessarily support an immediate withdrawal. Even fur-
ther, the question is inappropriate as a ballot measure in
and of itself because assuming that an entire university
- administration, faculty and staff included - can agree
about Iraq is a big leap of faith. How would an official con-
demnation be justified?
It would also be hypocritical to back a referendum that
would needlessly politicize the campus in light of the recent
outcry over President Bernie Machen's public endorsement
of a presidential candidate.
If the question was limited to specifically represent only
student opinion, that would be a different story. That is
supposed to be what SG is all about. For these reasons, we
encourage you to vote "no" on this question.
Moving on, the next referendum may have taken a bit
longer to read, but at least it is a whole lot easier to answer.
It's a no-brainer that there should be some independent
oversight into where the university places - and makes
- its billions.
If the university does create an independent committee
to advise the Board of Trustees, that is one step closer to
ensuring socially responsible investment of UF's $1 bil-
lion-and-growing endowment. UF's responsibility as the
flagship university for the state of Florida demands that
it set an example for how to handle financial affairs in a
progressive way. Not to mention this would come with
the added benefit of removing the motivation for the mis-
guided Students for a Democratic Society protests. That's
something we gladly support.
That leaves us with the next constitutional amendment
- which was easy to overlook due to its sheer size and
complicated constitutional speak. Maybe the crafters of the
amendment weren't aware we didn't have the extra time to
study the SG constitution before heading to the polls, but it
probably would have been a good idea to include an expla-
nation on the Web site.
As best we understand it, the amendment requests a
reduction in the number of senators elected in the fall and
spring. While this may disappoint those on the hunt for that
next line on their resume, we have to promote a resounding
"yes" on this one. Though the number of senators will only
be reduced by a maximum of 10 for each term, that's still a
step forward to reducing a bloated senate.

MEANWHILE, AT THE POLLS
True patriots question country's path
mericans have little to cheer about or believe in
these days. The list of reasons to have lost faith in
our republic is inordinately long and spectacularly
depressing. Whether it's the incomprehensible incompe-
tence of the government's response to Katrina, contentious
elections rendering dubious results, complete disregard for
the Constitution and the rule of law, the denigration of the
environment, the use of torture on "enemy combatants"
(whatever that means), the exponential increase of wealth
disparity, steroids in baseball, "Spygate" in football or the
quicksand quagmire that is Iraq - the American people
have good reason to be despondent.
It's hardly surprising that Americans' confidence in
America isn't what it used to be. The institutions and tradi-
tions that have been ingrained into the national conscious-
ness as exemplars of American exceptionalism have, in re-
cent years, crumbled under the weight of corruption, greed
From the fraud of Enron and WorldCom, to the excesses
of Exxon, to the disgrace of Abu Ghraib, it seems that scan-
dal and ineptitude have eclipsed what used to be called
The virtues of justice, equality and adherence to a higher
moral imperative have been severely undermined. The ide-
als that made us, in the words of Ronald Reagan, the "shin-
ing city upon a, hill," have been decimated by unnecessary
fear, endless war and anachronistic imperialism. The staples
of what used to be the United States of America have been
purged with near-perfect precision.
We now venerate the culture of bling and misogyny, un-
realistic "reality" television and the complete breakdown of
civil political discourse in what has become the celebrity-fix-
ation nation. But if you dare question American "greatness,"
your patriotism will be questioned next.
Last week, the spouse of a presidential contender said
something substantive, thought-provoking and unfortu-
nately, controversial. Michelle Obama, wife of Sen. Barack
Obama, said that "for the first time
in my adult lifetime, I am really
Proud of my country."
. Conservative commentators
went ballistic. In an all-too-familiar
refrain, the possible future first lady
Joshua of the United States was subjected
Fredrickson to the corrosive politics of personal
rail attacks that have replaced reasoned
email@example.com debate in this country. Documented
sexual deviant Bill O'Reilly was
among the most vicious, telling his intellectually impaired
audience that he didn't "want to go on a lynching party
against Michelle Obama unless there's evidence." How
prudent of him.
This isn't the first time conservatives have questioned
someone's patriotism because he or she has dared to ques-
tion American purity or has deviated from the simple-mind-
ed "love it or leave it" script. This odious practice has been
employed with increasing frequency over the past several
It can no longer be tolerated. Obama himself has been
the target of the smarmy conservative smear-machine. Some
months ago he was censured for explaining that he didn't
wear a flag lapel pin anymore because it had become "a sub-
stitute for, I think, true patriotism."
Now there's a concept. True patriotism isn't blindly fol-
lowing presidential decree, and it isn't wearing a miniature
version of the stars and stripes. True patriotism is found in
the continuous questioning of everything insidious and
insane about the current trajectory of this country. One can
love the U.S. and still voice disapproval when we fail to do
the right thing or live up to the ideals the nation was founded

Haridopolos overpaid, under-qualified
As a UF alumnus and current graduate stu-
dent, I was angered at the news of the hiring of
state Sen. Mike Haridopolos. That anger turned
to rage as I read the "Inside UF" section with a
little epithet from our friend Bernie about the
looming budget crisis and $47 million shortfall
expected next year. His plan for everyone else is
to ask every college to make 6 percent "general"
cuts to its departments, not "across-the-board
reductions." However, he is personally taking
action by drawing a $300,000 bonus for himself
and overpaying an under-qualified professor
to teach political science while he works on his
Ph.D. part time.
Well, I'm working on my Ph.D. and doing
research full time, so why am I only getting
one-third the salary for twice the work?

called "BS2011: How to Ruin a State University"
where I am assured quality internships with
Bernie Machen and our state legislators.
Hiring sends UF staff disturbing message
First, it was President Machen's bonus on the
eve of a budget crisis that angered those of us
who have put in many years of hard work into
When we were informed of our $1,000 bo-
nus, we complained but like good team players,
we accepted it. After all, what else could we do?
The paltry after-tax sum was better than noth-
ing, and if it meant saving a few jobs, fine.
Now we have the case of state Sen. Mike
Haridopolos, who, with no Ph.D., was hired as
a lecturer in the political science department in
the midst of a budget crisis and will earn a salary
much higher than other lecturers who do have a
Ph.D. Does this "team" really exist or is it just a
figment of the imagination?
It is only natural, especially for those who
have worked at UF for many years, to assume
that before filling a position such as lecturer or
faculty member within a department, the input
and support of the faculty would be considered
before making a decision.
The fact that this did not happen sends a
disturbing message we have heard and seen all
too often in politics: "Do as I say, not as I do". The
rules do not apply to those at the top.
During my military service and in the years
afterward, I learned the concept of "lead by ex-
ample." You do not ask your troops to do some-
thing that you yourself are not prepared to do.
The only way to get others to follow you is to
show them you're in the trenches with them, and
where they go, you will lead them in the fight.
Right now the "team" is being told it will
have to make sacrifices that will hurt initially but
have to be made.
We want to all chip in and do our part for the
good of the university, and we all want to save
jobs, retain enrollment, and remain a top-notch
However, the sacrifices of the team mean
nothing if those asking us to make them are not
prepared to do it themselves.

Fla. DEP joins cause
* AGENCY SEEKS TO SELF-
By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
joined California earlier this
month in a lawsuit against
the Environmental Protection
Agency to allow states to enforce
their own standards for regulat-
ing greenhouse gas emissions
Under the Clean Air Act,
states have the right to establish
stricter vehicle emission stan-
dards than those required by the
federal regulations created by the
EPA, upon the agency's approval
of a waiver.
California requested a waiver
in 2005. Two years later, the EPA
denied the state its request to
greater reduce the greenhouse
emissions of California drivers.
On Jan. 2, California filed
a lawsuit to appeal the denial.
More than 17 states, including
Florida, filed soon after to sup-
port the appeal.
"The states are saying if the
government won't get off its
butt and ,deal with this issue of
restricting emissions, then they
will," said Walter Rosenbaum,
a UF political science professor
who specializes in environmental
Whenever there is an envi-
ronmental issue, there is always
a conflict between the states
and the federal government,
Because vehicles and pollu-
tion both cross borders, this issue
entangles both levels of govern-
The department is interven-
ing on behalf of the state be-
cause it was appointed in July
by Gov. Charlie Crist to adopt
the California emissions stan-
dards, said Sarah
.,:. P. Williams, DEP
"Florida is one
of the most vulnerable states to
climate changes," Williams said.
"We're definitely not sitting
around waiting. We want to.be
She said there is no way to
know how long the lawsuit will
take to be settled. Meanwhile,
the state has been holding public
workshops to get feedback from
Rosenbaum said if the waiver
passes, residents must put pres-
sure on the state to go through
with the regulations.
"It's one thing to have Florida
say they want the authority to
regulate," he said. "It's another
for a state to actually regulate the
auto industry. That's not easy."
University Police says filming women without their knowledge not illegal
VIDEOS, from page 1
Capt. Jeff Holcomb, UF Police
Department spokesman, said he has not
heard any complaints about the videos on
"There's no law against being video-
taped by someone," Holcomb said.
He said "voyeur," the term used to
describe the follower in most of the me-
dia coverage, is inaccurate because this
person's activity is not illegal.
If someone were to call UPD while
being followed by someone videotaping
them, UPD would send of-
On ficers to the scene to confront
Campus the person, Holcomb said.
Collard found the videos
on a news site Thursday night, leading
UCF's Student Government Association to
examine about 25 videos from the user's
profiles on Web sites including YouTube,
Revver.com and Dailymotion.com.
After an Orlando reporter tried to con-
tact the user, he or she immediately took
down the videos, Collard said.
Churches still committed to serving homeless despite Gainesville restrictions
CHURCH, from page 1
The only issue resolved at the
meeting Tuesday was the ordi-
nance's lot-size requirement.
The committee voted to de-
crease it slightly, requiring at
least one acre for churches with a
capacity of up to 100 people and
another half acre for each addi-
tional 50 people.
The committee also discussed
regulations for churches that pro-
vide overnight shelter, but did not
come to a decision.
The ordinance as currently
written would restrict operating
hours from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. for
church shelters, but the commit-
tee considered removing operat-
ing hours completely.
Commissioner Jack Donovan
also suggested cutting back the
ordinance's 20-person maximum
for how many homeless people a
church can shelter overnight.
"I would say the number 20 is
a very big number to impose on a
neighborhood," Donovan said.
The committee discussed giv-
ing churches the right to shelter
up to three families or three
individuals and the privilege to
shelter up to 15 with a special use
The committee will hold a spe-
cial meeting March 6 at 6 p.m. to
come to a final decision for shelter
regulations and to discuss com-
patibility, another issue they did
not have time to talk about.
Compatibility requires neigh-
borhood churches' noise levels,
lighting and traffic to be in keep-
ing with the homes that surround
City officials intend to have the
proposal drafted by March 10 so
the city commission can vote on it
at their meeting March 24.
Discussion of the ordinance has
also brought up complaints about
existing regulations for churches
that serve food to the homeless.
Churches in residential neigh-
borhoods may not serve food to
the homeless if they are within a
quarter mile of each other or 2,000
feet from the UF campus. They are
also prohibited from serving more
than 20 meals per day or breaking
health or safety codes.
The committee decided to dis-
cuss at Tuesday's meeting only
RLUIPA concerns and look into
the other issues at a later date.
Jim Wright, executive director
of the Alachua County Coalition
for the Homeless and Hungry,
said these churches have often
acted outside the city's regula-
"The main change now is city
staff is encouraging the enforce-
ment of these rules," Wright said.
But the ordinances don't just
"The primary burden is felt by
people that are hungry," he said.
Harry Behrens, who stood in
line for breakfast at Holy Trinity
Episcopal Church Sunday morn-
ing, said he blamed tightening
restrictions on homeless people
who panhandle or shout at pass-
"The primary burden is felt
by people that are hungry."
Alachua County Coalition for the
Homeless and Hungry executive
"If you got a barrel of apples
and there's some rotten ones, it's
going to screw the whole thing
up," Behrens said.
Frankie Sumter, a religious
leader at Holy Trinity, said the
breakfast has fed 75 to 80 people
every Sunday for the past 18
Larry Reimer, a minister at the
United Church of Gainesville,
said he's never had a problem
with neighborhood complaints.
"Nothing of what we do to
serve the horneless impacts the
neighborhood in any negative
way," Reimer said.
But some churches have en-
countered problems with their
neighbors; Commissioner Jack
Donovan said at the meeting,
citing Fire of God Ministries and
Trinity United Methodist Church.
Reimer said he thought the
commission would eventually
come to an agreement that would
If not, he said, his church
would simply refuse to comply.
"The churches will not stop
doing this," he said. "It's who we

C LCo I IUIIO, from page 1
Student Body President Ryan Moseley will
form a committee to investigate online voting,
a Student Government official announced in a
Student Senate meeting Tuesday night.
Kim Cruts, SG press secretary, said Moseley's
group would be created in reaction to an e-mail
from Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of UF
student affairs, to both SG political parties - the
Gator Party and Orange and Blue Party.
In the e-mail, Telles-Irvin suggested creating a
committee to research online voting, which was
declared unconstitutional by the UF Supreme
Court Feb. 12. Students for Online Voting, the
group fighting for online vot-
Student ing in SG elections, recently
Government filed a lawsuit against UF fol-
lowing the ruling.
The senators convened 30 minutes later than
usual Tuesday because polls for the first day of
Student Government elections dosed at 8 p.m.
There were no special requests or bills pre-
sented in the 40-minute meeting.
After the meeting, Kevin Reilly, Student Senate
president, described Senate's lack of activity as
part of the "natural ebb and flow" of legislation
- a notion confirmed by Glenda Frederick, Senate
He also said it is not unusual for activity to
drop off during SG elections because many sena-
tors are seeking re-election.
Most committee chairs yielded their time for
public debate to recently appointed Sen. Brian
Finkel, who gave a tongue-in-cheek speech about
how students don't take advantage of SG services
available on campus.

the students, and both parties want to do
that," he said.
Both said their supporters had been
campaigning since before 8 a.m.
Hoffstetter added that the rain might
ruin the party's plans to paint a message
on the 34th Street Wall Tuesday night.
He said the Gator Party hadn't or-
ganized anything "as unique" as hiring
Albert, UF's mascot, as the Orange and
Blue Party did to promote its campaign.
Miorelli said Orange and Blue paid
$100 to rent Albert for an hour from the
University Athletic Association.
Albert strolled Turlington Plaza from
noon to 1 p.m. sporting a triple-extra-large
Orange and Blue T-shirt.
"I've yet to see Albert offer a flier and
someone refuse it," Miorelli said. "How do
you not vote for the Orange and Blue revo-
lution with Albert?"
When students vote for Student Body
and Student Senate candidates at various
campus locations, they can also vote on
two referendum questions.
The proposals ask students if UF
"should officially denounce the invasion
and continued occupation of Iraq" and
whether UF should create a committee to
advise the Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body, on socially responsible
investing of the university's $1 billion-plus
Students can also vote on a proposed
Student Body constitutional amendment
to reduce the range of Student Senate seats
up for election each semester to 40 to 50
instead of up to 60.

"To have him in the lineup, I don't think
anybody would not like it," DiFelice said. "A
big part of spring training is the chemistry that

necessarily have to have the best players. When
you've got 25 guys going after each other, hav-
ing their back and support and a relationship,
that's going to get you extra wins.
"Hopefully Barry, if he does join our team,
he'll be a part of that. If it's going to be a nega-

trasquad scrimmage, but they were also abuzz
with the possibility of Bonds joining the team.
Anthony Janicki, 20, has been a season-ticket

Bonds is the all-time leading home-run hitter

trippers. He broke Henry Aaron's record of 755
home runs last season while taking heat for his
possible use of performance-enhancing drugs.

UF TRACK AND FIELD
Corner finds track success
By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Wondy Pierre-Louis can do it all.
When the talented sophomore isn't flip-
ping into end zones, you can find him at the
track perfecting his long jump.
After putting his track career on hold for
more than two years to focus on football, he is
back and showing everyone what made him a
two-time state champion in high school.
As a senior at Naples Lely High in 2005,
Pierre-Louis won the Class 4A state title in the
long jump and triple jump.
Pierre-Louis, a cornerback for the UF foot-
ball team, expressed his interest to compete in
track as a freshman but was encouraged to
focus on football instead.
"He was interested in doing track last year,
but they wanted to get him some more time on
the football field," UF assistant track and field
coach Rana Reider said. "I had spoken to him
quite a few times in the fall, and I knew that he
wanted to do track, so as soon as he was able
to come out, he made his appearance."
Fellow football teammates Louis Murphy
and Deonte Thompson have also made the
transition to track and field this spring. Pierre-
Louis said the football coaches were support-
ive of their decision and that being able to
compete in both speaks to the depth of the UF
Pierre-Louis believed he could aid the
track and field program in its quest for a
Southeastern Conference title.
"I've got a lot of friends on the track team,"
he said. "I knew that they wanted to win a SEC
championship, and I think that I can help them
Reider and the rest of the track program
welcomed him with open arms.
"I knew that he was really talented, and
we just hope that anyone who comes out from'
football can help us win a championship,"
Pierre-Louis and his coaches are optimistic
about the upcoming SEC Championships.
They believe there is a realistic chance of
bringing home a conference crown in the long
"Everything is possible," Pierre-Louis said.
"I want to win the SEC."
Reider echoes those sentiments.
"He's doing really good," he said.
"Hopefully he can jump far enough to get to
nationals. He has had some really big jumps
that have either been fouls or have been
behind the board. If he can get one of those
jumps on the board, he has a good shot."
Pierre-Louis also competes in the triple
jump but has been slowed in the event by inju-
ries from football. Nonetheless, Reider thinks
he can place well in that event too.
"I think that he can definitely be in the mix
for the top three," he said.
Pierre-Louis has turned to Reider to help
regain his form on the track. After spending so
much time away from the sport, he has had to
go back to basics with his training.
"I knew that he was really talent-
ed, and we just hope that anyone
who comes out from football can
help us win a championship."
UF track and field assistant coach
"The biggest thing for him was just learn-
ing how to be a track athlete and understand-
ing the different concepts of jumping," Reider
said. "He had to learn the difference between
just running fast down the runway and actu-
ally understanding what he was doing and
why he was doing it."
With Reider's guidance, Pierre-Louis has
learned the techniques that have turned him
into a legitimate track and field competitor.
"In high school I never got my approach
right," Pierre-Louis said. "He has taught me
how to run like a track athlete."
Up to this point, Pierre-Louis' hard work
has paid off. He captured a third-place finish
in the long jump at the Iowa State Classic and
earned the first NCAA provisional qualifying
mark of his career. His jump moved him into
eighth place on UF's all-time indoor long jump
list. He is also currently tied for ninth on this
season's SEC indoor long jump list.
"For him to be at that place in such a short

They both have short, dark hair.
Similar hairlines and love for the game
One is a freshman guard and the
other is a leader, yet some say they are
one and the same.
It has nothing to do with how they
dribble, how they pass or even where
they play. It has to do with what they
look like, something neither of them can
"I don't get it," guard Nick Calathes
said. "If I shaved my head, nobody
would say that."
Calathes regularly fields questions
regarding whether he looks like UF
coach Billy Donovan, a theory some of
his teammates have adopted.
"I saw that as soon as I heard about
it," forward Alex Tyus said. "He does
(look like Donovan) if you look at him
real quick. It has to do with the hairline."
Calathes said it's likely because of the
hair. However, he doesn't plan on slick-
ing it back like Donovan anytime soon.
"No way," Calathes joked.

UF is going back to Cali, Cali, Cali.
After a 14-game homestand, the Gators
- who have eight players from California
on their roster - will do their best LL Cool J
impressions and head to the West Coast for the
second straight year.
However, the Wednesday showdown at
Long Beach State (6-5) will mark the first time
that four of the players will get a chance to
play in their home state as college athletes.
Freshmen Kelsey Bruder, Aja Paculba,
Kristine Priebe and Megan Bush all chose to
play softball approximately 3,000 miles away
from where they grew up. Another freshman
from California, Shaunice Harris, is out for the
season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

school is amazing."

"We know Florida has been an up-and-
coming team," Bruder said. "The coaching is
amazing. The school is amazing. A lot of us
just wanted a change, I guess."
Now ranked No. 5 in the nation, UF (19-
0) is no longer that program on the rise that
can sneak up on teams. A big reason for the
Gators' consistent early-season dominance is
the triumvirate of Californians who have al-
ready experienced a West Coast swing.
