Senator's resume questionable on education
* HARIDOPOLOS SAID HE
HAS BEEN WORKING ON A
State Sen. Mike Haridopolos,
who was recently hired as a UF lec-
turer, told UF officials that he was
working on his doctoral degree at
the University of Arkansas, but
Arkansas officials said he hasn't
been since 2000.
A UF official, who spoke on
the condition of anonymity, said
Thursday that Haridopolos' re-
sume stated he was working on
his doctoral degree at Arkansas.
But Charlie Alison, a spokes-
man at the university, said records
show that Haridopolos hasn't been
enrolled since fall 2000.
"Theoretically, he should still
be enrolled if he's still pursuing a
doctoral with us," Alison said.
Haridopolos was hired to lec-
ture in UF's political science de-
partment and coordinate student
internships for the Bob Graham
Center for Public Service. He will
be paid $75,000 for the one-year

tions that offer doctoral degrees,
according to online catalogs from
Arkansas' state universities.

Student gets 4 months
Pleads no contest
to sexual assault
A UF student pleaded no contest Thursday
to charges of sexually assaulting another UF
student in 2007 in his Springs Complex dorm
John J. Petracco, 19, was sentenced to four
months in jail followed by two years of house
arrest, said Spencer Mann, spokesman for the
State Attorney's Office.
After that, Petracco will be on probation
for three years, during which time he may
have to participate in psychological treatment,
unannounced inspections of his home and
polygraph tests, Mann said.
Because of weaknesses in their case, pros-
ecutors had been discussing the possibility of a
plea deal for quite some time, Mann said.
According to Petracco's arrest report, the
victim told police she was intoxicated on the
night of Oct. 16, 2007 and agreed to stay in
Petracco's dorm room because
she had known him for four
Local years and didn't think it was "a
Courts big deal."
C^OUrts She "passed out" in a bed
but then felt her pahts and
underwear being pulled down
and felt Petracco begin to have sex with her.
Petracco's roommate, William D. Martin,
told police he remembered seeing Petracco
"mount" the intoxicated victim that night and
did not see her move or hear her make any

The Board of Governors has given up its
pursuit to revise the Legislature-controlled
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program
- a move that comes in a time of tension
between the two bodies, which are currently
facing off in a lawsuit.
The board, which oversees Florida's 11
public universities, stated in a news release
Thursday that tweaking Bright Futures
would be removed from its agenda for the
upcoming legislative session.
The board previously suggested freezing
the scholarship program's current funding
of $400 million through the 2011-2012 school
It had also proposed transferring $100
million of the program's funding to the
Florida Student Assistant Grant programs
and allotting another $100 million to pro-
vide incentives for students pursuing "areas
of high state need," according to the Board's
Feb. 21 agenda.
Mark Rosenberg, chancellor of the board,
stated in the release that the board would
instead focus on "securing adequate sup-
port in an environment of budget cuts and
stopping the brain drain from Florida's

of Governors, said the board never intended

SG parties continue battle at complaints hearing
More than 30 complaints filed
By ILEANA MORALES
Although the Student Government
elections results were announced early
Thursday morning, the Gator Party and the
Orange and Blue Party kept battling until
late Thursday night.
The Student Elections Commission
reviewed 10 complaints as of 9:30 p.m. as
part of a two-day review of more than 30
election complaints filed by both parties
against each other. Thursday's hearing
would last until about 11 p.m., commission
Chairman Patrick Jackson said.
The commission found Orange and Blue
Party members guilty of violations in five
complaints. They received three warnings,
two public reprimands and one $5 fine.
The commission will meet again today
at noon to finish reviewing the complaints,
including those filed against the Gator withdrew three complaints before the com-
Party. mission began its review. Several hours into
Sam Miorelli, a mechanical engineer-
ing junior and Orange and Blue Party
president, said the party filed about five
complaints against the
Student Gator Party.
Government Ryan Day, SG deputy
chief of staff and a Gator
Party volunteer, has filed 34 complaints
since Monday. Most of them were against
the Orange and Blue Party, and six con-
cerned referendum advertisements. Day
deliberations, Day withdrew another.
Sarah Krantz, SG's supervisor of elec-
tions, confirmed that 8,129 students voted
in spring SG elections and that no absentee
ballots were cast.
Krantz added that a hand count for
Student Senate engineering seats on
Thursday morning confirmed a split ticket.
Engineering seats went to Christie Lee of
the Orange and Blue Party and Diego Soto
of the Gator Party.
Gainesville named top spot for retired senior citizens
By KATIE GALLAGHER
Gainesville could be Florida's
new prime destination for retirees.
A Monday article on
SmartMoney.com that ranked
Gainesville the top city in the coun-
try to retire to during an economic
downturn wasn't the first to declare
it a hot spot for senior citizens.
In 2007, the city also ranked
eighth in "Top Ten Value Towns for
Those Considering Retirement" and
11th on the AARP's "The 15 Best
Places to Reinvent Your Life."
City spokesman Bob Woods said
Gainesville has been marketing it-
self to wealthy senior citizens since a
November 2006 study showed them
to make up a large portion of the
According to the most recent
U.S Census Bureau data, only 9.8
percent of Gainesville residents are
over 65, compared with 12.4 percent
nationally, although Woods said he
expects that to increase.
"There are a number of aspects of
our community that, when properly
packaged and properly marketed,
are attractive to senior citizens,"
Those include the bus system,
restaurants, hospitals, museums,
theaters and parks, he said.
But the latest ranking from
SmartMoney.com was based on
more economic factors.
Author of "Retire in Style: 60
Outstanding Places across the USA
and Canada," Warren R. Bland, who
contributed to the rankings, said in
a phone interview that many senior
citizens can make a profit from
selling their homes and moving to
Gainesville. A $300,000 house in
Gainesville is worth $500,000 in
Chicago, he said.
University towns tend to have
more stable economies, Bland said,
and Florida is a good state for re-
tirees because it has no income tax.
However, a lot of traditional South
Florida retirement towns have been
affected by a volatile housing mar-
ket, Bert Sperling said in a phone
interview. He ranked Gainesville
first in his book, "Cities Ranked and
Rated: More than 400 Metropolitan
Areas Evaluated in the U.S. and
Canada," last May and also had a
say in SmartMoney.com's ratings.
"I wouldn't want to be old
and living here."
UF health science sophomore
"Gainesville has been somewhat
insulated from some of the nutti-
ness of the housing market lately,"
Claire Lederman, treasurer of the
Gainesville chapter of the AARP,
said she loves the city - but not for
"The medical care is fantastic. The
university adds a lot," Lederman
said. "It's getting to be a big city, but
it has a lot of small-town qualities I
like a lot." The only things she didn't
like, she said, were her high taxes
and the sweltering summers.
Julie Shaffer, a UF health science
sophomore, said she couldn't see
people retiring to Gainesville.
"It's a total college town. You'd
think they'd get annoyed with
people out at all hours," Shaffer
said. "I wouldn't want to be old and
But farther away from UF cam-
pus, neighborhoods are quieter and
still close to activities, said Andrew
Vaughan, a physics junior. "Out by
where the real people live, it's pretty
amazing," Vaughan said.

Alcohol research presented
By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Contributing Writer
The root of UF's game-day alcohol problem
stems from police negligence of the open-con-
tainer law, UF researchers said at a presentation
Students and Gainesville residents wouldn't
dare to carry open alcoholic beverages through
campus or on public sidewalks on other days, said
Tavis Glassman, the coordinator of alcohol and
drug prevention for GatorWell. But before football
games, police tend to turn a blind eye to alcohol
consumption, Glassman said.
"When there's more than 50,000 people break-
ing the law, what kind of message does that send to
students?" he asked.
James Thomas, health education and behavior
senior, said he thinks police are lax on game days
because of the high number of UF alumni and
prominent donors present.
"Once you hit a Bull Gator with a ticket, that
might be the last time he donates," Thomas said.
He said he has only heard of one person receiv-
ing an open-container citation on game day.
"He forgot the Solo cup rule," Thomas said.
"The policeman told us that if you have a Solo cup,
you're fine. It's the cans and bottles that they come
Jeff Holcomb, University Police Department
spokesman, said UPD has limited officers, and a
Solo cup wouldn't present a probable cause for
police to arrest a tailgater.
As for the accusation that police don't enforce
alcohol rules because of UF alumni on campus,
Holcomb said officers' main focus is to target un-
controlled alcohol sources, like kegs.
"Our efforts may eventually shift more
toward the open container."
"Our efforts may eventually shift more toward
the open container," he said. "It will just take
Virginia Dodd, a health education and behavior
assistant professor, said she would like to see desig-
nated tailgating areas with security for game days.
Glassman said he and Dodd are not "knocking
the police," and they understand that changing
current game-day standards could take some time.
"We don't want to be framed as prohibitionists,"
Glassman said. "But because there are severe con-
sequences, something needs to be done."

The windows blazed a red-
dish burnt orange, and 13-year-
old Sadae Kasaoka stood in her
bedroom and thought about how
pretty the glass looked. An instant
later, the blast pummeled her into
the wall while shards of glass
pierced her skin.
Now 76 years old, Kasaoka
recalls the atomic bombing of
Hiroshima with the clarity of the
young girl standing by the win-
Kasaoka, who lost her parents
in the explosion, used a Japanese
translator to share her memories
with about 250 people at a gath-
ering for a speech held in the
Reitz Union Rion Ballroom on
Kasaoka can still see her hands
drenched in blood from head
wounds, she said. She remembers
running with her 92-year-old
grandmother to an air-raid shel-
ter after regaining consciousness,
stepping over bits of blackened
bodies along the way.
Kasaoka recalled the flames ris-
ing from charred bodies.
To her, those blue flames rep-
resented lost souls carrying lives,
hopes and dreams, Kasaoka said.
"I feel that I was kept alive so
that I could speak for them," she
Kasaoka still lives in Hiroshima
but has been traveling with the
program for the past three years.
Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
Hanrahan called the program a
"unique learning experience."
Hanraham presented Kasaoka
with a proclamation that recog-
nizes the anniversary
On of the bombings over
Campus Hiroshima and
Nagasaki and asserts
the need for worldwide collabora-
tion for peace.
The Voices for Peace events will
extend through March 14 with a
film series featuring Japan during
the World War II era, running Feb.
29 through March 2, in Reitz Union
Room 282. A nuclear bomb art
and photo exhibit will also be dis-
played in the Reitz Union Gallery
until March 14.
Amanda Siefman, a third-year
Japanese language student, was
touched by Kasaoka's story.

UF struggles to treat students with eating disorders
Other Fla. universities have similar problem

As National Eating Disorders
Awareness Week comes to an end, UF's

continues to tell students about treatment

The only problem is that the SHCC has
been unable to keep up with the number
of students who seek treatment for eating
"We can't treat everyone here at UF
with an eating disorder," said Dr. Marcia
Morris, a UF clinical coordinator and psy-
chiatrist. "We don't have all the resources
to do that."
Eating disorders have long been a sig-
nificant problem on college campuses.
According to The Massachusetts Eating
Disorders Association, 15 percent of wom-
en aged between 17 and 24 have an eating
Based on that number, about 3,000 un-

UF's Eating Disorders Program is made
up of a team of therapists, psychiatrists,
primary care providers and nutritionists
who offer individual and group counsel-
Students who visit the SHCC for eat-
ing disorder treatment see a therapist for
an initial evaluation, said SHCC therapist
After being evaluated, students are re-
ferred to community providers or can try
to schedule appointments with the SHCC,
However, the program's resources
don't allow therapists to see their patients
on a regular basis, she said.
"We have a program, and we try to do
our best, but we are spread thinly," she
Dr. Barbara Welsch, licensed psycholo-
gist at the center, said students need to talk
to a therapist once a week for adequate
treatment. Therefore, many students are
referred to community practitioners.
"We try to get people evaluated as soon
as possible," Morris said. "If we have too
many clients, we do refer people out for

In addition to individual therapy ses-

two nine-student therapy groups that
meet once a week during the semester,
"Every semester, we turn away people
from our groups," she said.
But UF is not the only state school un-
able to provide adequate treatment.
At the Florida State University

to wait two to three weeks for an appoint-

"We try to get people evaluated as
soon as possible. If we have too
many clients, we do refer people
out for therapy."
Dr. Marcia Morris
UF clinical coordinator and psychiatrist
The ratio of counselors to students at
USF is one counselor for 3,000 students,
Langer said the nationwide college ra-
tio is one counselor for 1,700 students.
UF's ratio was not available.
The Envrionmental Trigger
Therapists and former patients say that
when students with eating disorders seek
treatment on campus, it is important that
they are seen immediately.
UF junior Jennifer Goetz, who serves as
a GatorWell nutrition and eating disorder
outreach assistant, began struggling with
anorexia at 13 years old.
Goetz, who described herself as a
"classic case," said her constant strive
for perfection transformed into an eating
"Your genetics loads the gun, and the
environment pulls the trigger," she said.
She said if UF students have to wait
for treatment, that feeds the problem and
makes them think that they're "not sick
enough" for help.
"Any delay in help is more time to sit
with those thoughts," Goetz said.
Welsch said if students are willing to
talk, SHCC professionals should ideally
be able to jump in and help them because
their attitudes toward getting help can
change during the wait.
"If someone's ready to talk today, they
could change their mind in three weeks,"
Welsch said in regard to students who
might be placed on waiting lists.
Referring students to community prac-
titioners does not necessarily resolve the
problem. Depending on their insurance
policies, patients will have to pay for ex-
pensive therapy sessions in comparison to
free therapy on campus.
A Balancing Act
Welsch said if more offices were built,
the SHCC would be able to hire and train
However, phase one of the new Student
Health Care Center, which is due to be
completed by May 2009, will have even
less office space than the current building.
"Our training program as it is may be in
jeopardy because of space issues," Welsch
Morris said she would like another
nutritionist, therapist and psychiatrist to
be hired, but it isn't possible because of
"We right now do not have the resourc-
es to hire new people, but it would be a
wonderful goal at some point," she said.

6, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2008
This week was chock full of antics that made us feel like
we were drifting back to our days on the elementary school
playground. With UF's Student Government elections came
the usual name-calling, and there were even a few grown-
ups who displayed more than their fair share of immaturity.
So, live from the sandbox, we bring you this week's edition
Our liar-liar-pants-on-fire DART goes to state Sen. Mike
Haridopolos and his super-stylized hair for misrepresent-
ing his academic credentials after bagging a $75,000 lecturer
position in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. He said
he was pursuing a doctorate in history at the University of
Arkansas, but that institution revealed that he hasn't been
enrolled there since 2000. On Wednesday, Haridopolos con-
veniently mentioned that he is planning to move his research
to Florida State University. This scant progress over eight
years is not the norm for someone pursuing a Ph.D., despite
what UF officials are saying in their efforts to do major dam-
On that more important note, we throw a someone-
to CLAS' Interim Dean Joe Glover for hiring Haridopolos
in the first place. Glover says that Haridopolos' degree status
never came up in the interview process. Maybe no one ever
told him that once you're in a hole, you've got to stop dig-
ging. This only makes it blindingly clear that faculty hiring
should remain squarely in the hands of the faculty.
UF President Machen needing a friend in Tallahassee
simply isn't a good enough reason to insult and ignore cur-
rent professors by hiring an overpaid, under-qualified and
extremely busy politician amid budget cuts. The allegations
against Haridopolos' academic integrity alone should be
enough for UF to revoke his contract immediately.
Though they only lost 10 Student Senate seats, the waa-
waa-sore-loser-tattletale DART goes to the Gator Party for
filing 27 complaints against the Orange and Blue Party for
election codes violations. The complaints included petty
issues like a "paid political advertisement" phrase missing
from Orange and Blue's signs and Web site. SG Deputy Chief
of Staff - and Gator Party volunteer - Ryan Day said the
repeated violations suggest it was a "calculated move" by
Orange and Blue. Well, at least they tried a bit of subtlety,
and we don't think that's nearly as bad as, say, giving people
doughnuts so they'll vote for you. Can't you just smoke your
pompous cigars and continue celebrating without subjecting
us to more of the same negative campaign crap? Way to set
the tone for your administration.
Next up, the you-must-have-been-the-kids-who-
stole-lunch-money DART goes to Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Fraternity members Benjamin Berteau and Peter Kimmel
who sent "Godfather"-style e-mails to a Chi Phi Fraternity
member who apparently urinated on SAE's lion statue. It
wasn't enough for them to commit second- and third-degree
felonies, but they also had to drag Terry Schiavo into their
mess. Kimmel told police he never had the intention to harm
the guy, and was only trying to "mess with his head." Nice
try. But, that kind of behavior will get you onto a whole new
playground - in the prison yard.
Finally, we can't end without giving a maybe-it's-the-
the-swing-set DART to whoever posted videos of college
women's rears on the University of Central Florida and
University of Florida campuses. While videotaping people
in public isn't necessarily illegal, we're guessing "kingbooty-
hunter" wasn't on a college tour for academic reasons.

New freedom comes with anxieties
somebody save me. I'm having a quarter-life crisis four
years too early. I've been in school since I was six. I have
nine weeks and two days left until my graduation. But
the only number that seems to matter to me is zero. That's
how many job offers I've received.
I've often imagined what my life would be like months
away from my college graduation. In these apparently ab-
surd daydreams, I pictured myself laying all my boundless
opportunities out on a big, mahogany table to be carefully
considered. And now here I am. I don't have a big, mahog-
any table and more importantly, I don't have any options to
consider on it. I mentioned my sad, futureless situation to my
father, and he responded by telling me to enjoy my freedom
before life's big responsibilities take over. Enjoy my freedom?
How can I possibly enjoy this extent of freedom?
I think this might be the emotional struggle a recently
released criminal goes through. He's just gathered all his be-
longings and stepped out into the fresh air for the first time
in years. On the way out of prison, the warden said, "Enjoy
your freedom!" But after stepping outside, the ex-convict
realized he has absolutely nowhere to go. He'd been in there
for so long that he doesn't know what it's like to be anywhere
else. Sure, in May I'll be free. But in some circumstances, be-
ing committed to something, or having an upcoming obliga-
tion, is better than having a blank agenda. This is one of those
Granted, I don't know anyone graduating from my col-
lege who wants to work in a creative setting that has secured
a job. But the fact that I've got company is really not comfort-
ing. Oh, good. There are hundreds of other journalism, ad-
vertising and public relations students in my position. Well
maybe we can all meet up at Starbucks and wallow in self
pity when May rolls around.
Here's the icing on top of my dry, bitter, under-baked
career cake: My freshly hired older brother just started a job
in banking that will undoubtedly lead to his success. He's
got an interesting, well-paid career that comes with stability

Carly Hallam easily led to his employment.
email@example.com Why is it that obtaining a creative
job is nearly impossible?
Personally, I have applied for
more jobs than I'd like to admit. I feel like I've been search-
ing for love on Match.com. I've submitted the appropriate
information to who knows how many different receivers,
and no one has even given me the courtesy of a rejection
letter. I want to believe that they're all just going to bombard
me with responses on the same day. But in my discouraged
heart, I know I may not be finding an ambitious advertising
executive or a talented magazine editor to work for anytime
soon. But even with this painful truth etched into the back of
my brain, I still can't bring myself to settle.
I understand where you're coming from single, white
female from Trenton, New Jersey. You know Mr. Right is
out there somewhere and just because he hasn't come across
your profile yet doesn't mean you're gonna say "I do" to
Mr. Wrong. I don't want to work as an advertising account
person when copywriting and creative writing appeal to me
so much more. So, until I receive a job offer that I'm really
interested in, I'm just going to continue imagining what that
day would be like. I can see Mr. Right Job sitting across from
me at a big, mahogany table looking over my resume. In my
well-planned dream, he says, "It's a perfect match! Do you
want to start tomorrow?"
Zero. That's the number of seconds that pass before I ex-
citedly shout, "I do!"
And finally, I'm saved from my own freedom.

SENATOR/WELL-PAID LECTURER MIKE HARIDOPOLOS SAID
HE WAS PURSUING HIS P.H.D AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS.
HE HASN'T BEEN ENROLLED THERE SINCE THE YEAR 2000.
HERE ARE A FEW OTHER OUTDATED ITEMS ON HISRESUME:
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7
Letters to the Editor
Gator Party corrupted by power
The Gator Party's stance against online vot-
ing has pushed many previous supporters in
the Greek community to feel that the party has
lost touch with all sense of fairness. As members
of the Greek community, we understand that
electing a Student Government hostile to the
Greek system is not in our best interest. But we
also understand we are a minority on campus,
and other students may not share our opinions.
These students have the right to be heard, and
online voting will make this possible.
It is inconceivable that online voting could
allow more opportunity for coercion than the
current actions of the Gator Party. In the past
two days, the Gator Party has checked in on my
sorority house every hour to count how many "I
voted" stickers we have. We were told that vot-
ing is mandatory, which defies all sense of vol-
untary political participation. Not only were we
required to vote, but we were also told exactly
how to vote on every referendum.
Most appallingly, Gator Party members
threatened that if my sorority did not have an "I
voted" sticker from every girl in our house, mem-
bers of our chapter would be blocked from future
Senate positions and from Florida Blue Key.
Students and Greek members are coming to
realize that power corrupts. We want to vote,
but not because we are commanded or coerced
to for fear of future consequences. We want to
make informed decisions on referendums and
initiatives rather than blindly follow the advice
of a party we can no longer trust. We cannot
support political coercion, so therefore, Gator
Party, many of us could not support you.
Please try to understand that obtaining a po-
sition in Senate is a privilege, not a right. Many
of you believe that you can and will make a dif-
ference if elected. Show us the logic behind your
policies, not just your manipulative power to
violate basic principles of fairness to stifle your
competition. Please be respectful of students'
ability to make decisions in our best interest so
we can finally have a student government to be
anonymous sorority member
Editor's Note: The author's name has been
withheld because of her concern of retaliation
Orange and Blue campaign a success
Reading yesterday's Alligator, you would
have thought that the Orange and Blue Party
got slaughtered. But we didn't exchange hugs
of commiseration last night. We exchanged
hugs of joy. We may not have won the executive
positions, but we did win more Senate seats than
any opposition party since the Unite Party won
13 in Spring 2006. The Orange and Blue Party
ran a strong campaign, and I think even the
Gator Party will acknowledge that.
That we won 11 seats shows our ideas
resonate with students. We will use those seats
to push online voting, replace WebMail with
Gmail, make the Student Government Web site
useful and keep an eye on spending.
We congratulate the Gator Party on a well-
fought campaign. The Orange and Blue Party
looks forward to working with the Gator Party
on these important issues in the months ahead.

Greed is good. We're a Gainesville-area
newspaper looking for an advertising sales
rep who loves to make money. This person

who can dazzle us and our clients. Please

UF trustees discuss
budget cuts at retreat
By KATIE SANDERS
YULEE - UF's highest-ranking of-
ficials met Thursday to discuss ways to
sbsh $50 million from UF's budget - an
amount UF President Bernie Machen said
UF should aim to cut next year to make
up for legislative funding shortfalls.
During the first day of a retreat at
White Oak Plantation Thursday, Machen
told the Board of Trustees, UF's highest
governing body, that across-the-board
cuts weren't the answer, but he wouldn't
reveal which departments would receive
deeper cuts than others.
He said he has a good idea of which
cuts should be made, and he would sug-
gest them at the board's next meeting in
March. He didn't want the information to
"hit the campus from Yulee," he said.
The board will meet today to develop
more plans to reduce the budget.
Machen said after the meeting that he
would consider proposing an operating
fund that would raise
donations to cover the
The fund would

endowment, which is
As they discussed
sarchen barriers to making
cuts, including UF's low tuition and poor
student-faculty ratio, the trustees tried to
target UF's principle mission for the next
few years to focus which areas could be
targeted for cuts.

research university," Machen said. "We
are a pretty damn good one."

it's given up efforts to improve it.
Negative feedback prompted the
board's decision, he said, but the most
important reason was the need to focus
on vital issues, such as statewide budget
"The budget issues are so all-consum-
ing," Edmonds said. "We didn't want to
create a sideshow."
Senate President Ken Pruitt, R-Port
St. Lucie, wrote in an e-mail Monday
that the board's Bright Futures proposals
stemmed from ill intentions.
"Let me be clear, this is not a move
on the part of the Board of Governors to
save Bright Futures," Pruitt wrote. "It is
an attempt to chip away at the funding."
It's not the first time Pruitt has gone-

Willis leads Gators against Tide
* NO. 3 UF WILL TAKE ON
NO. 5 ALABAMA AT 8:30 P.M.
By BOBBY CALLOVI
UF will need a little help from
overseas to get a win at Alabama.
Senior Nicola Willis, a native of
Hadleigh, England, has been one
of the strongest performers for the
Gators in recent weeks, and she
and No. 3 UF (7-1,4-1 Southeastern
Conference) will face No. 5 Alabama
(5-1, 4-1 SEC) in Tuscaloosa on
Coming into the season, Willis,
who competed in the 2004 Olympics
for Great Britain, was expected to
perform on the balance beam and
floor exercise and lead off for the
Gators on the uneven bars.
In the first meet of the season,
Willis got off to a solid start by fin-
ishing in the top three in three of
four events and placing third in the
After the opening competition,
she began to have some problems
on the bars.
Willis fell on the bars in the sec-
ond meet against Georgia and again
two weeks later against Arkansas,
though she wasn't feeling well dur-
ing that meet. In between the two
falls, she put up her only other sub-
9.8 performance in the event.
"It was really frustrating, because
I do a lot of bar routines every day
(in practice) and every week, and it's
not a hard thing for me," Willis said.
"To be able to do so easy in practice,
then go out into the meet and let my-
self down, let my team down and let
my coaches down, it was really hard
Coach Rhonda Faehn decided
to move Willis to second in the bars
The switch paid off immediately.
Willis took second place with
her best bars total of the season in
the first meet after the change at
"It is really nice for me to see
someone go before me," Willis said.
"I get cQnfidence from them."

UF senior gymnast Nicola Willis performs her bars routine during the
Gators' win against LSU in the O'Connell Center on Feb. 15.
Since the meet against the
Wildcats, she has continued to put
up high marks and has topped her
season-high score with her new col-
legiate best bar score of 9.95 - she
finished in a tie for first with team-
mates Melanie Sinclair and Amanda
Faehn said Willis responded
to her early problems by training
harder and didn't allow them to
affect her mentally. She will look for
Willis to continue to improve and
finish out her senior year at the top
of her game.
"We hope she continues to get
better and compete better, so she can
leave Florida with such a great feel-
ing," Faehn said.
The Gators will need another
strong performance from Willis and
the other gymnasts Friday as they
head into a hostile environment
against the Crimson Tide.

UF secure at home
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
It might be one of the greatest home-court advantages of
all time in any sport.
Whenever the UF women's tennis team is playing a
Southeastern Conference opponent at home, there's about a
99.3 percent chance the Gators will come out on top.
UF (6-1) has lost just once at home in 140 dual matches
against conference foes.
The lone loss came in 2002 against Georgia, 4-3.
UF coach Roland Thornqvist seems to think the hot
weather has played to his team's advantage over the years,
as other SEC teams can't prepare for the conditions. But that
isn't the only reason for the Gators' dominance.
"I think we've had good teams as well," Thornqvist said.
"We've had teams that have been competitive every year,
and. it's always a little bit easier to play at home."
The No. 7 Gators will get two chances this weekend to
continue their SEC home streak when No. 14
Vanderbilt visits Friday at 5 p.m., followed by
No. 22 Kentucky on Sunday at 1 p.m.
The Commodores (7-0) fell to UF twice
Tennis last season, once in Nashville (4-3) and
again in the conference tournament (4-1), so
Thornqvist knows his team's'first conference opponent is
looking for revenge.
"They've got :.. kids who love to play the Gators,"
Thornqvist said of Vanderbilt. "They tend to play their best
tennis against us."
The Wildcats (9-2) played UF close in Lexington last sea-
son, but it wasn't enough as they fell 4-3. Not only will UF
look to protect its home court, but it will also try to put itself
in an early position to add another SEC regular-season title.
The Gators shared last year's crown with Georgia and
have won 22 SEC titles in 28 years, the most conference titles
won by any SEC women's program in any sport.
Thornqvist said that even though the upcoming matches
might mean more than the non-conference tilts, his team
hasn't focused on winning the SEC this early in the season.
"What we like to do is talk about performance and how
we can get better for each match and for each week," he s�ft.
"We don't really spend a whole lot of time talking about
championships or talking about winning SEC. That sort of
comes with playing well.
"If we get too worried about who we're playing and
when it is, then I think that's going to affect our performance
negatively," he added. "I think it's much more important for
us to control what we can control."

Gators look to regain stride during California trip
By KYLE MAISTRI
All good things must come to an end.
That saying has proven true for the No. 5
Gators during the past week.
After dominating the early-season compe-
tition with relative ease, the team has become
a little more human and less of a finely tuned
machine as it heads to the Worth Invitational
hosted by Cal State Fullerton (7-6-1) this
"I thought the pitch was high, but
then I come to find out that it was
really low. I think that was the first
sign that I knew that I shouldn't
be here right now and need to go
UF sophomore left fielder
� With games against Oregon State (8-8) and
Pacific (5-9) on Friday, Fullerton on Saturday,
and Louisville (5-5) and No. 10 Stanford (16-1)
on Sunday, UF will have plenty of opportuni-
ties to start some new streaks before heading
into Southeastern Conference play.
Already in 2008, the Gators softball team
did something even the NFL's Patriots
couldn't - go 19-0.
The start was easily good enough for the
best in school history - the previous record
was held by the 2005 Gators who won their
first 11 contests - but Long Beach State made
sure they weren't the 20th notch on UF's belt
by defeating the Gators on Wednesday.
The win streak was obviously the most
important of the streaks snapped recently but
certainly not the only one.
First baseman Ali Gardiner ended a
nine-game hit streak last Friday in a 0-2 per-
formance against North Florida. The junior
slugger followed that up by failing to reach
base safely against Notre Dame the next day,
ending a streak of 16 such games to start the
Sophomore Francesca Enea began the sea-
son by going 14 games and 34 at-bats before
her first strikeout against Gardner-Webb last
That particular feat is even more impres-
sive because Enea hits for power and is never
slapping or bunting.
"I know it says strikeout on it, but I don't
take it as a strikeout," said Enea, who was on
IVs last week due to illness. "I thought the
pitch was high, but then I come to find out
that it was really low. I think that was the first
sign that I knew that I shouldn't be here right
now and need to go home."
Thankfully for the Gators, she stuck
around and hit a home run her next time at
Without a doubt, the most impressive
streak to come to an end was junior Stacey
Nelson's of consecutive scoreless innings.
Against the Irish last Saturday, the All-
American let up her first run in 47 innings
"As I read it last week on Gatorzone, I
didn't even realize it," coach Tim Walton
said when asked to put his pitcher's Orel
Hershiser-like performance into perspective.
"I mean, I knew she was good. I knew she
had a bunch of shutouts, but you really don't
know where a pitcher is at or how she's do-
"She doesn't really get in the zone. She
pitches like that all the time."
Nelson took the loss on Wednesday and
will likely pitch three more times this week-
end as UF looks to avoid a different kind of
streak - one of the losing variety.
UF left fielder Francesca Enea swings during the Gators' 12-1 win against Mercer
on Feb. 13. Enea was just one of the Gators who had a streak end last week.

E UF WAS OUTREBOUNDED 57-35
IN THE CONTEST.
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - David doesn't
always beat Goliath.
Two years after UF pulled a stunning
road upset against Tennessee on its Senior
Day, this go-around went much differently.
While the Gators (16-12,5-8 Southeastern
Conference) ding to a small bit of hope for
an NCAA Tournament bid, they learned
why the No. 3 Volunteers (26-2, 12-1 SEC)
will contend for a second straight NCAA
Championship in an 88-61 rout in front of
16,532 fans Thursday night.
"We don't look at it like, 'Well, it's
Tennessee, we're not supposed to beat
them anyway,'" UF coach Amanda Butler
said. "Did we get beat by a good team? Yes.
Did we know we had to play well to beat
them? Absolutely. But we fell short of that.
There's no letting ourselves off the hook."
Junior guard Sha Brooks led UF with a
game-high 27 points, one shy of her career
high, but her team was completely out-
matched against Tennessee, whose 12 SEC
victories have come by an average margin
of 25.25 points.
When the Volunteers did miss shots,
they crashed the offensive glass, picking up
25 offensive rebounds on 45 missed shots.
UF was outrebounded 57-35.
"We just weren't physical enough,"
Butler said. "That was disappointing, be-
cause that was a majority of what we spent
our time preparing for was how physical
Tennessee plays. We knew if we didn't
initiate the contact and didn't do a good job
of boxing out early that we would have a
result like we did."
When the Gators did score, the
Volunteers quickly brought the ball down

Mullaney hopes to improve upon last week's poor outing

The Gators haven't run into
much trouble during their first few
contests of the season, but if they
want to achieve their optimal per-
formance, they'll need improved
contributions from one key com-
Ace Kyle Mullaney struggled
mightily in UF's season opener last
Friday. The sophomore allowed
nine hits and six runs - including
a grand slam - in just three innings
during the Gators' 10-7 win.
According to UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan, a case of amnesia
might benefit Mullaney as UF (5-0)
prepares to face No. 10 Miami (3-0)
tonight at 7.
"The one thing we've preached
to these guys is that you've got to
have a short memory," he said. "It's
a humbling game. It's a game of
percentages, and the guys that can
overcome poor performances and
put it behind them are the ones that
end up being pretty good."
Understandably, Mullaney was
very disappointed by his poor
showing a week ago but is eager to

struggled with his control against

little bit," Mullaney said. "I needed

Defining moments are the threads that

holes. The Gators' (21-7, 8-5 SEC) po-
rous non-conference schedule has left
many critics skeptical. But UF coach Billy
Donovan continues to swat the questions
and bring his team's focus to the present.
"We are 28 games into the year, but
you know what, the next experience is
still a new experience," Donovan said.
"I just don't think it's going to be smooth

said. "I thought we did a poor job
of transition defense as well, which
hinges a lot on communication. We
knew it was going to be difficult to

Brooks, who grew up in nearby
Jackson, Tenn., had another break-
out performance in her home state.
The junior scored 52 points in two
games at Thompson-Boling Arena.
"I love performing in front of a
lot of people, showing what I can

Five Tennessee players were

The Gators are coming off two
straight wins after losing four of five.
Donovan said it's hard to tell how his
young group will handle the adversity.
"1 don't expect anything from these
guys. They're young," he said. "That
would be like me expecting my 5-year-
old to make her bed."
A key to UF's recent success has
been its outside shooting. After going
just 1 of 15 from beyond the arc against
Vanderbilt, the Gators have knocked
down 20 3-pointers in the last two
games. UF is 12-0 when hitting 40 per-
cent from long range. Dan Wener has
hit six of his last 10 3's after a 6-of-39
stint before the brief winning streak.
As the Gators prepare for this tough
stretch, Donovan is trying to keep his
team from looking ahead.
"If we're worrying about stuff two
or three weeks from now, we would
be making a mistake," Donovan said.
"I wish I had a crystal ball right now to

taken pressure off of the pitching staff, which
has been shaky at times.

I give up a run here or there, our offense is

The Hurricanes should pose a tougher
task than UF's first two opponents - Siena

O'Sullivan, who was an assistant coach at
Clemson for nine seasons, is aware of the qual-
