UF left out of


NCAA field

By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

Surprise.
After leaving the Orlando Magic and returning to
Gainesville, one might wonder if the National Invitational
Tournament was on UF coach Billy Donovan's mind.
Take a guess.
But after back-to-back national titles and nine con-
secutive trips to the Big Dance, that's exactly where he's
headed.
"That may be the path we need to go,"
Donovan said. "These guys may need to
be totally humbled in a way."
When the Gators (21-11) ducked out
Men's 80-69 to Alabama in the first round of the
Basketball Southeastern Conference Tournament,
the team showed its lack of humility and
maturity in the opening minutes.
UF came out barely breathing and fell behind 14-0 to an
Alabama squad just two games above .500.
Similar to the loss against Kentucky less than a week
before, the Gators didn't play desperate until they truly
were, and as in all walks of life, desperation is just steps
away from failure.
"They manhandled us," center Marreese Speights said.
"We came out playing soft and we paid for it."
The Gators fell behind 30-5 at one point and trailed 46-
23 heading into intermission.
UF was a pathetic 9 of 31 from the field in the half and
allowed Alabama players Richard Hendrix and Mykal
Riley to combine for 29 points, six more than UF's total.
It was dear from the tip-off that UF didn't have if. Flat
would be an understatement for a team competing in a
AP Photo game with everything hanging in the balance.
UF coach Billy Donovan buries his face during an 80-69 loss against The team gathered for a relatively quiet "Go team"

SFlorida Democrats pitch primary redo7

Flor id a Democrats pitch pr ima ry red o

After their national party
leaders effectively disen-
franchised voters, Florida
Democrats are now trying to
find a way to make their votes
count in a close primary race.
On Wednesday, the Florida
Democratic Party unveiled a


proposal to redo the state's Jan.
31 election that would comply
with Democratic National
Committee rules, which man-
date that primary elections
must be held between Feb. 5
and June 10.
In August the DNC de-
cided to strip Florida of all of
its 210 delegates to punish the
state for scheduling its election
too early.


Karen Thurman, chair-
woman of the state party, said
she would announce today
whether she has received
enough positive feedback to
move forward with the plan,
which pro-
Elections poses that the
2008 state party
send "vote-
by-mail" packets to all regis-
tered Democrats in the state
no later than mid-May. Voters
could then mail their ballots


to one of 50 regional election
offices statewide or drop them
off in person at the nearest of-
fice location.
The results would be tallied
June 3.
In a memo sent to state and
national Democratic leaders,
Thurman listed the "immense"
benefits the plan offers:
It would be easier for
Democrats to vote, the pro-

resign


By KIM WILMATH and
KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Staff Writers

UF Provost Janie Fouke and Senior
Vice President for HealtflAffairs Doug
Barrett resigned from their posts amid
a major restructuring of the way UF
handles its financial operations.
At Friday's meeting of the Board
of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, UF President Bernie Machen
announced that budget operations
currently overseen by the Office
of the Provost and the University
Controller's Office
Z will move to the of-
fice of Matt Fajack,
who became UF's
chief financial offi-
cer in January
Financial man-
Foulke agement for the
Fouke Health Science
Center and the Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences will also move to
Fajack's office.
The change will begin July 1, said
Kyle Cavanaugh, senior vice president
for the administration who oversees
Fajack.
The resignations will be effective
June 30.
Fajack said his new duties would
prevent top UF officials from having
to contact several people from differ-
ent offices to answer budget inquiries.
After the change, the provost's of-
fice will focus on academic leadership
responsibilities. The office currently
oversees academic programs and bud-
get operations.
Machen said Fouke will work on
improving UF's international program
after she leaves the provost's office,

Hope renewed that former UF student alive in Iraq


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

U.S. authorities in Baghdad
have received the severed finger
of a 25-year-old former UF stu-


dent who is being held hostage
in Iraq.
Jonathon Cote, who attended
UF before moving to Iraq to work
for a private security company,
was kidnapped in November


2006 when his convoy was am-
bushed.
Cote's friends and family said
while they are obviously dis-
turbed by the latest develop-
ment, it has renewed hope that

Former UF student Jonathon Cote, 25, leans against a Crescent Security vehicle in an undated photograph.
Cote, working as a security contractor, was taken hostage in 2006 after his convoy was ambushed in Iraq.


he is still alive.
"I personally feel very encour-
aged by the news, although it
was very harsh to hear at first,"
said Maude Cote, his cousin. "It
probably is a sign that whoever is
holding him is willing to negoti-
ate at this point."
After graduating high school
in New York, Cote joined -the
military and spent four years in
Afghanistan and Iraq.
When his tour of duty ended,
he returned to the United States
and decided he wanted to go to
college at UF.
"It probably is a sign that
whoever is holding him is
willing to negotiate at this
point."
Maude Cote
Cote's cousin

He began classes in the fall of
2005 and joined the Sigma Phi
Epsilon Fraternity.
"He really took us all under
his wing," said Matt Sloan, fra-
ternity president. "Regardless of
if you were a pledge or a brother
or an alumni, you had a lot to
learn from Jon."
Sloan said Jon was a vibrant,
talented and confident friend
who helped other students keep
their personal problems in per-


spective.
But Cote had trouble acclimat-
ing to civilian life, he said.
"He felt that the life that he
held over in Iraq was obviously
very exhilarating and action-
packed, and when he went to
school at UF he had a tough time
finding excitement in daily life,"
he said.
Cote decided to return to Iraq
as a security escort, but about
three months after he had arrived
and one week before he was set to
come home, he was kidnapped.
Little is known about who
took him or what they want,
though his captors released a
video in December 2006 in which
Cote told the camera he would
not be released until prisoners
in U.S. and British jails were re-
leased.
Maude Cote said in the video
her cousin looked like he had
lost a lot of weight. She said her
family has not been given much
information by the U.S. govern-
ment but hopes Americans are on
the ground looking for him.
In Gainesville, Sloan said
Cote's friends are counting on
his return.
"We are 100 percent holding
out hope that Jon is alive and that
he's coming back and he's going
to spend another couple good
years at UF," he said.


Trustees approve decal price hikes, campus renovations


* UF TO SPEND $25 MILLION
IMPROVING CAMPUS LOCATIONS.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

Starting in the fall, UF students will see
several changes on UF's campus: higher
parking decal prices, a new Flavet Field


band shell and renovations at Southwest
Recreation Center, to name a few.
At meetings Thursday and Friday, the
Board of Trustees, UF's highest governing
body, unanimously approved recommenda-
tions from UF's Transportation and Parking
Services to hike scooter decal prices from
$36 per year to $64 per year. Car decal prices
will rise from $110 per year to $122.
Trustees also approved plans to renovate
several spots on campus, including the rec-


reaction center, the Flavet Field band shell
Sand the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom.
The total cost of the renovations is nearly
$25 million. The money will come from
the 2008 Capital
U nF Improvement Trust
Administration Fund, which is
compiled from a fee
attached to tuition.
The Legislature gives universities a part
of the fund every three to five years for cam-


pus improvements.
Expanding the recreation center to in-
clude a larger cardio area and an indoor
track will cost about $16 million.
Tearing down the Flavet band shell and
building a new one will cost almost $500,000
- an amount Student Body President Ryan
Moseley said would be paid back in about
a decade because UF will no longer need to
rent larger portable stages for field perfor-
mances.

UF ACADEMICS

AT&T donates to UF program


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

UF's Florida Opportunity
Scholars Program received a
$100,000 donation on March
8, adding to the more than $3
million raised for the program
since its start in 2006.
Don Sadler, AT&T director
of public affairs, said his com-
pany was eager to support the
scholarship program, which
aids first-generation college
students from households with
annual incomes of less than
$40,000 a year to cover college
expenses.
"We like to support pro-
grams that do good, and this
program does good," Sadler
said.
He said the check was pre-
sented to UF President Bernie
Machen during a dinner on
March 8.


Sadler said AT&T has a com-
mitment to UF, and Marshall
Criser III, president of AT&T
Florida, is a UF alumnus and a
member on the board of direc-
tors for the UF Foundation, the
organization that handles UF's
endowments.

"We like to support pro-
grams that do good, and
this program does good."
Don Sadler
AT&T director of public affairs


Chris Brazda, spokesman
for the foundation, said the
program was created to help
economically disadvantaged
students pay for expenses other
than tuition.
Brazda said the program is
largely funded through private
donations and has had more
than 500 different contributors


so far.
"It's been very popular and
for good reason," he said.
Money contributed to
the program was originally
matched by funding from the
Legislature.
Steve Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said there were no match-
ing funds from the state during
the past year due to budget
cuts.
Brazda said 771 UF students
currently receive awards from
this program.
He expects that number to
rise to 1,100 students next year.
UF records show that the
average award to each Florida
Opportunity Scholar has been
about $4,000.
Brazda said awards vary
based on each student's finan-
cial needs, and $3.7 million has
been raised for the program
since the summer of 2006.

PUBLIC HEALTH

Officials: Water safe


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Recent investigations by The
Associated Press finding traces of
pharmaceuticals in the drinking wa-
ter of 24 U.S. cities haven't worried
Alachua County officials.
The pharmaceuticals, which in-
cluded antibiotics, anti-convulsants,
mood stabilizers and sex hormones,
appeared across the country in water
supplies serving 41 million people, ac-
cording to the investigation.
Neither the Alachua County Health
Department, which regulates well wa-
ter, nor Gainesville Regional Utilities
tests Gainesville's drinking water for
pharmaceuticals.
Dan Jesse, a spokesman for GRU,
said the company does test for chemi-
cals that would likely be the first to
appear in case of contamination. None
of those chemicals have been found,
Jesse said.
"We have one of the purest water
supplies in the country," he said.
According to the AP investigation,
pharmaceuticals are flushed into water
supplies when peoples' bodies don't
absorb all the medication they take.
Wastewater can also be contami-
nated by unused pills flushed down
the toilet.
But the amount of pharmaceuticals
being found is small.


The pharmaceutical content in
drinking water is measured in micro-
grams, said Joseph Sekerke, a toxicolo-
gist with the Florida Department of
Health. That's a thousand times lower
than the milligrams that are usually
used for doses, and is probably too low
to affect anyone, Sekerke said.
"I wouldn't want to say we don't
need to worry about-it at all, but there
are other things that we need to be
worrying about more than this," he
said.
"We have one of the purest
water supplies in the country."
Dan Jesse
GRU spokesman

Still, the investigation has elicited a
national response, and the U.S. Senate
will hold hearings on the matter in
April.
Locally, officials suggest medica-
tions be disposed of properly, such
as in the pharmacy of UF's Student
Health Care Center, where unused
medications can be emptied into a con-
tainer full of acidic solution.
The free service is also available
at all three of Gainesville's Wise's
Pharmacy locations and Alachua
County Hazardous Waste Collection
Center on Northeast 63rd Avenue.
The Associated Press contributed to
this report.

Financial Fix

Changes in UF

governance needed
W ith the announcement of UF Provost Janie Fouke's
resignation, the beginning of a reorganization of
UF's administration is now underway.
UF President Bemie Machen's plan to move budget op-
erations under a single chief financial officer signals a much-
needed change to business as usual for UF. And we think
that's a good thing for the most part.
We understand that the true purpose of a university is a
marketplace of ideas, and though it shouldn't necessarily be
run like a real marketplace, desperate times call for desperate
measures.
In a sense, the university is providing a service, though
it may be in the intangible form of a well-educated student
body and the piece of paper we get at graduation being the
product.
While it is unusual for a state university to be run with an
"entrepreneurial" spirit by the way, great euphemism for
corporate, Bernie we can't say that the current system we
have warrants any opposition to the proposed change.
And it's not like it's completely unheard of.
Last October, the president of the University of Oregon
contended that if the state did not allocate more funding, the
University of Oregon would need to look at the possibility of
leaving the Oregon University System and find a new system
of governance to succeed.
And some have even completely weaned themselves off
any state support.
In December 2003, South Carolina gave all 13 of its univer-
sities the option to go private, and Colorado's state university
system is preparing a contingency plan to convert all four of
its universities to private status by 2009.
Sure, the flagship university of any state should probably
be run like a public institution, but that is becoming more of
the ideal nowadays. What's a cash-strapped administration to
do when the state refuses to hold the university's best interests
in mind? Or when the money is just not there?
While the Legislature and the Board of Governors continue
to duke it out over tuition increases in their Tallahassee usual
power plays, our great university is suffering.
The University of Miami just received $80 million in state
funds for its genetics institute partly due to its ability to attract
top researchers, and UF was left looking south like a jealous,
forlorn stepsister.
Faculty are fleeing to other states to chase higher and more
competitive pay, and doors are closing to transfer students and
well-qualified freshmen.
And no one wants to see their exams printed on thirds of
paper anymore.
If we wanted what we already have, then Machen could
just keep doing more of the same. But that's not what we
need.
We cannot reasonably expect Machen to stand back and
watch the university crumble when it is well within his power
to stop the destruction.
Enter this recently revealed business approach.
Though these changes will have to be carefully considered
and allow for academic control over how funds are allocated,
we welcome the change if the faculty are adequately repre-
sented. After all, they are ultimately responsible for the quality
of education we receive.
The financial structure may reek of corporate influence via
the Board of Trustees. But if it makes the university less reliant
on the whims of the Florida economy and politicians seeking
re-election by showing off in Tallahassee, it may very well be
a necessary evil.

I'm not an expert on election-year politics, nor have I ever
wanted to play one on TV. (Have you ever seen any of
those guys?)
But if you pretend I am an authority, this column will be
much more interesting.
It's like a horror movie: You have to suspend disbelief
so you can enjoy the horror, even though you know it's not
real.
Anyway, John McCain is set to get the Republican Party's
nomination in a few months, but the Democrats still have
some-sorting out to do.
Barack Obama currently leads Hillary Clinton among
overall delegates, 1,603 to 1,497. I don't really get the whole
delegate thing, and I can't even count to 2,025 the number
of delegates required to secure the nomination.
But the problem now is this: The race is so close that if
Florida and Michigan's more than 400 delegates are not
counted, it may be mathematically impossible to clinch the
nomination without superdelegates.
The superdelegates can endorse whoever whenever and
even change their candidate after an endorsement. Many
have already said they would follow the will of the voters,
but that "will" seems awfully close to ambivalent.
Democrats in Michigan are finalizing a plan to hold a new
primary in early June, allowing its delegates to be seated at
the party's national convention this summer in Denver.
But our Sunshine State doesn't seem to be making as
much progress.
Republicans and Democrats in the Florida Legislature
voted to hold the primary on Jan. 29, and the Democratic
National Committee refused to count the state's votes be-
cause the early date violated its rules.
Still, voters took to the polls.
Of course, Clinton's preference is to count the votes she
won in both states though she is not opposed to a revote.
But here is the context: The party did not sanction the
primaries, neither candidate officially campaigned in the


)r i-ioriaa re-vote
states, and Obama didn't even put
his name on the Michigan ballot.
Meanwhile, Obama wants to
evenly split the disputed delegates
with Clinton. Either alternative is
far from any semblance of demo-
Vincent Massaro cratic process. I would never expect
letters@alligator.org complete fairness or anything crazy
like that, but at least the appearance
would be nice.
As I see it, a revote is necessary. The January results reflect
an electorate that probably knew its votes weren't counting.
Perhaps people didn't go to the polls for this reason. Perhaps
those who did vote didn't take their decision seriously.
People are saying that a mail-in vote would be risky
because we've never done it before. Admittedly, Florida
seems to have a bad reputation when it comes to managing
elections.
Though it would probably be more expensive (possibly as
much as $25 million), I think a full-fledged primary should
be held to avoid disenfranchisement.
Alas, money is a problem.
However it would happen, a revote could cost at least
$10 million, and the Democratic Party doesn't want to pay,
preferring to focus funds on the general election. But because
the state paid for the January primary, it's-time for the party
to pick up the bill.
It's a relatively small expense to create solidarity within
the party. Besides, donors have already withdrawn money,
and more are threatening to do the same if the issue isn't
resolved.
If the Democratic Party wants to win in November, it
needs to unite to let Democrats know how much their votes
count.

Editorial Notebook

Academics need say in UF budget


Letter to the Editor
Concealed carry editorial misinformed, ignorant
Congratulations, Alligator! You've once again proved your
ignorance and dose-mindedness.
Firstly, you obviously don't understand the meaning of the
word "concealed," as you wrote, "how would anyone know if
a mentally ill shooter were on campus if everyone had a gun on
his or her hip?"
Though I feel like I'm explaining this to a 10-year-old, con-
cealed means the weapons are not visible. That means eligible
students would carry their licensed weapons without anyone
knowing, not out in the open as you wrongly depicted.
Also, you list the requirements for having a concealed weapon
but must not understand those either, as people over the age of
21 with government background checks and firearm training will
certainly not brandish their weapon just because a building is
being evacuated, even if your deluded daydreams suggest other-
wise. When you look at the Virginia Tech tragedy, it is true that 30
of the 32 victims were killed after police responded, so obviously
that is one real situation where a concealed weapon could have
made a huge difference, which greatly outweighs your highly
speculative situation of someone possibly shooting the kid who
brought a gun to SFCC.
* I'm all for peace, but I think you need to sit down, review the
facts and base a decision on those facts, and not write based on
ignorance and overactive imaginations.

s the old saying goes, he
who has the gold makes
the rules. In terms of a col-
lege campus, "the rules" translate
into course offerings, class size,
faculty hirings and compensation
of administrators. We don't have
much gold at UF these days, but at
least what we do have is partially
controlled by the people closest to
its effects: the academics.
That's all going to change soon,
and I'm breaking with the rest of
the editorial board when I proclaim
this change.as a Bad Idea.
The highest-ranking academic
administrator, the provost, is step-
ping down amid this unusual re-
structuring of a public university. I
don't blame her.
I understand that UF has bud-
get woes. But regardless of what
Machen says, they stem from pro-
jected cuts of up to $50 million by
Florida's state legislature, not from
UF's mismanagement. Financial
instability disrupts administration,
but it's how the funds are allocated
that really matters. I can't believe
Tigert Hall has the best interests of


students and
Leigh Shapiro faculty dose
Editorial Notebook to heart.
Plus, it's
hard to keep a straight face when
Bernie says this change doesn't af-
fect the ability of academics to man-
age their budgets.
Financial self-sufficiency doesn't
help anyone if the university down-
plays its role to provide a public
good: education. Many of the
"products" of UF don't come with
a dollar value attached. It's the job
of the academics at UF to ensure
that the intangible benefits of a uni-
versity aren't overlooked, which is
why they need a role in making the
budget.
The bottom line is the flagship
university of the state of Florida
shouldn't be run like a business
churning out degrees as cheaply as
possible. Public university should
be sheltered from market pressures
and re-elections to create a haven
for the a free exchange of ideas.
This decision to revamp UF's
budget process is not the only
option for improving, UF's fund-

ing situation. I agree with the rest
of the editorial board in that the
state legislators have failed UF.
But Florida voters already found
a way .to circumvent that conflict
when they created an independent
Board of Governors by constitu-
tional amendment in 2002. The UF
administration should protect its
financial interests by launching an
aggressive campaign to mobilize
public opinion against subduing
the Board of Governors, instead of
keeping the academics from help-
ing to run the university.
The power of the purse comes
with the most tangible effects of any
power in administration. Without
a say in the budget process, UF
academics will soon lose their voice
when it comes to the long-term vi-
sion for the university.
And that's a calculation anyone
should be able to make, no matter
what college they are in.

Machen expects university will have to cut $50 million from its budget


BOT, from page 1


and Barrett will return to clinical practice
and teaching pediatrics in UF's College of
Medicine.
Search committees to fill Fouke and
Barrett's positions will be created imme-
diately, and interim appointments will fill
the spots until permanent replacements are
chosen.
Though Fouke left the meeting quickly
after Machen made his announcement, she
wrote in an e-mail to the Alligator that the
new provost position would be "quite dif-
ferent than the position that I hold."
"It's appropriate for (Machen) to try to
fill the new job with a person with a skill set
that matches that new job," she wrote.
She did not speculate as to who might fill
her position and said she has made no fur-
ther plans after she completes her one-year
term at the International Center.
Barrett said he discussed his resignation
with Machen for about seven months, and
both agreed it was time for him to return to
children's health care.
Barrett wrote in an e-mail to Health
Science Center staff and faculty that he real-
izes the timing of his departure during state-
funding shortfalls "could be better," but he
would work with Health Science Center
leaders to lessen the impact of budget cuts
for the remainder of his term.
Machen said he wasn't sure whether
the salaries for those two positions would
change. Cavanaugh said Fajack's salary
would stay the same.
Cavanaugh said once the changes are in
effect, there would be ongoing monitoring
to ensure they are successful.
Machen said he has been contemplating-


a major change in UF's inner workings for
months. As is evident in funding shortfalls,
the way UF currently operates isn't work-
ing, he said.
After looking at financial records from
the last 20 years, which show dramatic state
funding decreases and faciulty-student ratio
increases, he said he made a tough decision
to restructure UF.
"This new model will enable the univer-
sity to get out of what I see as a downward
spiral," Machen said. "I won't say this is a


guaranteed success," he added.
Machen told the trustees that UF's new
system would be revolutionary among other
public state universities. A few universities
nationwide are run this way, but most of
them are private schools, he said.
The trustees, who have clamored for a
drastic change of UF's governance since
budget woes were announced several
months ago, voiced support of Machen's
decision.
After the meeting, Dianna Morgan, chair-

Adams during the Board of Trustees meeting at Emerson Alumni Hall on Friday.


woman of the board, said consolidating UF's
financial operations is essential to creating
more efficient spending habits.
Changes won't end there.
In an interview after the meeting, Machen
said in light of a nearly $1.5 billion shortfall
in state funds, the Legislature cut $11.5 mil-
lion from UF on March 12.
More cuts are expected to follow, and
trustees said it's unclear how they'll be
distributed across the state. While UF is still
reeling from a $22 million cut during the
Legislature's special session in October, it
must quickly brace for more.
Machen said he expects cuts of at least
$50 million by the end of the session, which
includes the $22 million UF already slashed
and the newly announced $11.5 million cut.
He said the cuts could mean fewer
faculty and students on campus, but noth-
ing is set in stone. While faculty cuts and
smaller undergraduate classes would both
be unfavorable, Machen said they might be
unavoidable.
"I don't think you can avoid people being
impacted," he said.
UF is also considering taking in fewer
transfer students this year, but no numbers
have been announced.
Transfer student decisions have been
postponed until April 15.
Machen said he was waiting on the final
word from the Legislature about funding
cuts before making any decisions.
In the meantime, last month he asked
each UF department to identify ways to cut
6 percent from each of its budgets.
The suggestions will be presented to UF's
administration in April.
"It's an adventure," Machen said. "I hope
it works out."

Candidates haven't contacted state party officials with opinions on proposal


PRIMARY, from page 1


cesses would eliminate almost every tradi-
tional voting obstacle and no single group
would have an advantage, she wrote.
Zach Moller, president of UF's College
Democrats, said he sees another advan-
tage to having a second election.
"I guarantee that if we have a redo,
both the candidates will be crisscrossing
the state," Moller said.
Since Alachua County is one of the only
Florida counties that chose Barack Obama
in January, both he and Hillary Clinton
would likely make stops in Gainesville,
Moller added.
Plus, unlike alternative proposals that
could cost tens of millions of dollars, the
"vote-by-mail" plan is estimated to cost no
more than $12 million.
In her memo, Thurman wrote that if
Democratic leaders, including the candi-
dates, did not support the plan, it would
not be implemented.
"The Party cannot and will not move
forward without your support," she wrote.
But, she told reporters, she does not expect
enthusiastic responses from the candidates


or from DNC chairman Howard Dean.
Alejandro Miyar, FDP spokesman,
said as of Friday the candidates had not
even contacted the state party to formally
weigh in on the plan.
"It's not a great sign," Miyar said with
a laugh. "Certainly we need to hear from
them soon if we are to move ahead."
The plan does have drawbacks, Moller
said.
University students may be particularly
disadvantaged because the ballots would
be sent out in mid-May, during most col-
leges' summer breaks.
So, Moller said, if UF students are regis-
tered to vote in Alachua County but have
already left Gainesville, it could be diffi-
cult for them to get their ballots mailed in.
Additionally, the legitimacy of a redo
could be called into question if the turnout
is lower than it was in January, when 1.75
million Democrats voted in Florida.
Miyar said the "vote-by-mail" election
is the best option for Florida because it is
economically feasible and would "ensure
maximum participation."
The FDP also considered holding a
second, state-run primary election, but
decided it would be too expensive and


likely would not be permitted by the
Republican-controlled legislature.
The party also thought about holding
statewide caucuses but realized doing so
would be overwhelming in a state as large
as Florida, and soldiers and older people
might not be able to participate, Miyar
said.
"I guarantee that if we have a
redo, both the candidates will be
crisscrossing the state."
Zach Moller
president of UF's College Democrats


"Florida is not a caucus state," he said.
"We simply couldn't do it."
If no redo is held, the FDP could ap-
peal to the DNC's Credentials Committee
to ask for Florida's January results to be
counted, Miyar said.
The committee will meet in the sum-
mer.
No matter how the dilemma is resolved,
Moller said he is confident Florida's del-
egates will have their votes counted at the
Democratic convention.


"It's totally out of the question that
Florida will not be seated," he said.
In her memo, Thurman emphasized the
importance of counting Florida's votes, cit-
ing a recent poll commissioned by Florida
Democratic Sen. Steve Geller.
The poll found that of Democrats who
voted in the Jan. 29 primary, only 63 per-
cent are committed to sticking with the
eventual Democratic nominee if Florida's
votes are not counted.
"That number is dangerously low,"
Thurman wrote.
Miyar said it is important to remember
how the problem arose in the first place. It
was the Republican-controlled legislature,
he said, that "steamrolled" the plan to
move the primary election to January.
"They're the ones who moved, the date
up," he said. "They've certainly had their
hands in the situation from the begin-
ning."
In her memo, Thurman insisted that
finding a way to count the votes has be-
come much more important than deciding
who is to blame.
"The stark reality is that all Democrats
lose if this is not resolved immediately,"
she wrote.

UF utilizes first triple play in more than a decade in Saturday's win


BASE, from page 19


All six UF runs came with two outs.
"The inning's never over until the third
out is made, and the game's not over until
the last out is made," O'Sullivan said.
The Gators took a 1-0 lead into the fourth
inning when Adams led off with a double,
and Jonathan Pigott followed with a double
of his own two outs later. Clayton Pisani
singled, adding another run, and an Auburn
error gave UF one last run in the inning. The


4-0 lead was more than the Gators' pitchers
needed.
Toledo (3-0, 2.14 ERA) did not have his
most solid start of the year, but he got the
job done. He recorded two strikeouts, both
in the fifth inning, and walked four batters.
"He's given us four quality starts now,"
O'Sullivan said. "What else can you ask for
from a freshman?"
UF has already matched last season's
total with 39 stolen bases.
Saturday's victory saw UF turn its first
triple play since March 15, 1997.

;h on the triple play over, as did the UF dugout.
"I was more fired up than I think Keating
was," O'Sullivan said.
n in the fourth, UF scored six runs in the first inning, and
a pitch right back the game was out of reach from that point.
Keating smacked Friday's contest was also a blowout in
rd it flew toward UF's favor. The Gators combined for seven
mns. Adams made runs in the fourth and fifth innings to take a

Subpar conference record, rough finish likely leaves Gators out of NCAAs

Tournament in Nashville, Tenn.
UF defeated South Carolina 71-57
in the opening round and then lost
to eventual tournament champion
No. 3 Tennessee 92-61 in the quarter-
finals. The game against Tennessee
(RPI 1) was one last chance for a
top-notch signature win, which UF
lacks on its postseason resume. It
did earn an RPI of 42 against the
20th-toughest schedule, according
to CollegeRPI.com.
But the Gators finished 6-8 in
conference play Only 13 SEC teams
since 1986 have received an NCAA
bid with a sub-.500 league record.
UF went 2-9 against teams in the
RPI Top 50, with its best win com-
ing in the season opener, an 82-71
home victory against Atlantic-10
Tournament Champion Xavier (24-
8, RPI 41).
Despite bad losses at Jacksonville
(23-9, RPI 140) and at Mississippi
State (16-14, RPI 106), UF prob-
ably wishes it could have a different
game back a 69-65 loss against

ment quarterfinals on March 7 in Nashville, Tenn. The Gators hope to earn an NCAA bid on Monday. SEC and a .500 conference record.


GYM, from page 19

- the most UF has used in a meet
since 1994.
Castillo led the way, earning
the win with a new collegiate
best all-around score (39.625).
Sinclair also set a new person-
al best (39.575) to finish second.
Ashley Reed completed the
sweep of the all-around with her
third-place finish.
The other two all-arounders,
Corey Hartung and Nicola Willis,
finished fourth and sixth, respec-
tively.
For most of the season, UF has
struggled with the small things,
but on Friday, the Gators were
able to hit almost all of their
handstands and stuck most of
their landings.
"Everything we have been
doing in the gym, such as hand-
stands and landings, definitely
paid off today," Sinclair said. "We
hit more landings then we have
done all season, and the score
showed it."


Finishing the regular season
on a high note was exactly how
Faehn wanted to see her three
seniors end their career.
She reminded them what was
still left ahead.
"What a way for our seniors
to go out of the O'Dome, and I
told them that we still obviously
have quite a bit of the season left
- our most important part of the
season," Faehn
said. "I was
just proud of
the way they
GymnastlCS put it together
tonight."
With the postseason starting
with the SEC Championships
on March 29 in Duluth, Ga., the
Gators will use the next two
weeks to continue to fine-tune
their routines. The Gators are
defending SEC champs.
Faehn is unsure what her team
can improve on from its meet
against the Utes.
"I don't really know if we can
do much better than what we did
tonight," she said.


Creme said UF's finish (4-6 in its
last ten), a lack of good wins, and a
less than impressive overall record
were the key factors that will leave
them disappointed on Selection
Monday. The Gators went 4-8
against the 10 teams on their sched-
ule that Creme projects to make it.
Butler has at least one person in
her comer former UF coach Carol
Ross.
"I don't know if there's 64 teams
better than them," Ross said at the
SEC Tournament. "I think they're
getting better at the right time of the
year as well."
If UF does not earn an NCAA
bid, it will earn an invitation to the
WNIT and likely a high seed. Butler
will become the first of eight Gators
coaches to earn a postseason bid in
their first season at the helm.
Since her hiring, Butler stressed
the goal of going to the postseason.
League coaches responded by
projecting her team to finish 11th of
12. Nobody's laughing anymore.
"That's what the expectation is
for this program every year to go
- to the NCAA Tournament," Butler
said. "At the time we were having
that conversation in April, there was
probably a few of them that thought
I was nuts. But here we are."


San Diego State up next in NIT first round


HOOPS, from page 1


chant before taking the floor and facing their
final chance. UF started off slowly but suddenly
sprung to life and gave its season one final gasp.
Trailing 55-30, the Gators reeled off a 21-2 run
to pull within 6 at 57-51.
Alabama called a timeout, and the Gators
pumped their chests, regaining their pride, which
to this point seemed lost somewhere between
Atlanta and three weeks ago.
Riley, who finished with 26 points, hit the
surging Gators with several daggers. UF tried to
hang tough but couldn't hold on tight enough.
The game, and its season, slipped through its
fingers.
"How much more needed to be said?" for-
ward Dan Werner said. "We were playing for
everything. You would think our guys would be
ready to go."
The final scoreboard read 80-69, and one
day before a tornado struck the Georgia Dome,
the Gators' chances of playing in the NCAA
Tournament had spun out of control.
UF had only itself to blame.
The Gators lost eight of their final 11 games
and failed to convert several opportunities to


punch their ticket.
UF will now prepare for the NIT, a tournament
so unheralded, its Web site quizzes fans on how
many teams are involved.
The Gators earned a No. 2 seed and will
host San Diego State on Wednesday. Ohio State,
Virginia Tech, Syracuse and Arizona State are the
top seeds.
"This is going to be hard to
swallow just watching those
guys play, knowing that we
should. be there," freshman
Chandler Parsons said.
For UF, a trip to the post-
season isn't what it used to be.
Wemer For the last decade, the Gators
have defined success by reach-

the bar has been set even higher.
So for such a young team, who may have de-
cided its fate before it even started its journey, the
NIT berth is hard to celebrate.
"There is no next," Speights said.
The Gators big man is right. As far as the fu-
ture is concerned, next is now. However, instead
of lacing up and joining the illustrious Field of 65,
UF will enter of group of 32 bidding for a chance
to end up in New York instead of San Antonio.. i

UF BASEBALL

Gators sweep Tigers in first weekend of SEC play


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

It's too early to say anything
for sure, but this team certainly
doesn't look like the one that
coaches predicted to finish fifth in
the Southeastern Conference East
before the season.
In the opening weekend of
SEC play, UF swept Auburn, cap-
ping the series with a 6-2 victory
Sunday. The Gators blasted past
the Tigers 12-8 Saturday and also
won 7-1 Friday night.
"Hopefully, this weekend
proved to some people we can
compete in the SEC," first baseman
Brandon McArthur said. "We'll
see down the road, but this is only
three out of 27."
It was UF's first SEC series
sweep since defeating Georgia at
the end of last March.
"It's a long season and I don't
want to get too excited," UF coach
Kevin O'Sullivan said. "We're ex-
cited with where we're at don't
get me wrong but it's just three
games."
The Gators (14-3, 3-0 SEC) had


no trouble putting up runs when
traditional thought would say
their offense should trail off enter-
ing conference play.
Freshman Josh Adams went 8
for 11 in the series with six RBIs,
four runs, three doubles, two sto-
len bases, two walks and a home
run. By Sunday, the Tigers had
learned their lesson both of
their pitching changes came before
Adams at-bats.
"I guess they figured a different
look might throw me off a little
bit," Adams said.
But it wasn't just Adams,
who said he would have had a
good laugh if you told him back
in February that he'd be batting
cleanup and performing as well
as he is. The entire UF lineup wal-
loped Auburn (11-8, 0-3 SEC) all
series: The Gators had 35 hits and
25 runs on the weekend.
"Today it all came together,"
freshman pitcher Tommy Toledo
said. "Confidence-wise, every-
one's building a little bit of mo-
mentum."

Selection Monday awaits


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

The other UF basketball team the
women's squad will actually have a rea-
son to watch its selection show Monday.
But it will likely yield the same result -
the Gators will be left outside the bracket.
The NCAATournament selection com-
mittee will release its Field of 64 on ESPN
at 7 p.m., but in bittersweet fashion, UF will
probably be team 65 or 66.
"I don't think (UF's) chances are good
at this point," ESPN.com analyst Charlie
Creme said Sunday. "I see them as the sec-

been on those last-four-out or next-four-out
lists since dropping out of my bracket in
mid-February. Florida didn't do enough
down the stretch to change that."

Gators (18-13) have made a "very compel-
ling" case.
"We've earned quite a bit of consider-
ation," Butler said on March 10. "Are there
other teams out there that deserve to be
in more? I don't know.
That's why there's a com-
mittee that makes these
decisions. All you can do

As Tiffany Murry began her floor
exercise to lead the Gators off in
their final event, teammates Amanda
Castillo and Melanie Sinclair could be
seen laughing and dancing to it.
The lighthearted attitude on the side
of the floor carried over to the scores as
UF put up its highest total of the season

"Gymnastics is a fun sport, and if you

"I think our team does well with a
little bit of rest, because its gives their
minds a chance to relax and get back
up to be fresh for the competition."
The Gators relied on five all-around
competitors to carry the team to its
second-highest team total of the season
