Activism flourishes locally, slips nationally


Anti-war activists protest

Iraq war's fifth anniversary


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Though anti-war activism in
Gainesville has increased dra-
matically in the past year, na-
tional demonstrations against the
ongoing war in Iraq won't attract
the same number of participants
they once did today on the five-
year anniversary of the invasion.
National demonstrations have
decreased significantly in past
years with protesters beginning
to doubt whether their actions
are making a difference, said
Michael Heaney, a UF assistant
professor of political science who
recently conducted a study into
the demographics and strategies
of protesters.
A 2003 anti-war movement
that turned out millions of people
for the largest international pro-
test in history is now lucky to get


50,000 at a rally, Heaney said.
Protesters in Washington,
D.C., chose not to hold their an-
nual march this year, instead or-
ganizing about 1,000 people into
a number of small groups that
performed acts of civil disobedi-
ence around the city
Special Wednesday.
Report They changed their
strategy because they
had fewer activists
and because they hoped that by
splitting up they would convey
more intensity, Heaney said.
"What's the point of having
a large rally if decision makers
aren't going to use it to inform
their decisions?" he said.
But that resignation doesn't
seem to be present at UF, where
anti-war demonstrations have
increased significantly in the past
year.
Heaney said he attributes

Group gives proposals


By KATIE SANDERS

ksanders@alligator.org

UF's Committee on a Civil, Safe
and Open Environment presented 16
recommendations Wednesday night
concerning police protocol and cornm-
munity conduct during UF events.
The committee was created in
October following the University
Police Department's Tasering of
Andrew Meyer at a Sen. John Kerry
speech Sept. 17.
The committee's meeting was the
second aimed to garner public input,
but fewer than 20 people attended the
forum at the Levin College of Law.
Kim Tanzer, committee chairwom-


an, said e-mails about the assembly,
which was broadcast on the Internet,
were sent to faculty, students and
media outlets, and
the small audience
made for a shorter
It's a differ-
Sent picture from
S September, after
the Tasering caused
campuswide up-
Meyer roar and led UF
President Bernie Machen to create the
committee.
"I understand that people move
on," Tanzer said.

Scam sweeps Sweetbay


BY KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer

Florida Sweetbay Supermarket shoppers
are being advised to scrutinize their financial
statements following a computer security
breach that has potentially exposed four mil-
lion credit and debit card numbers between
December and March.
Close to 2,000 cases of fraud have been re-
ported as a result, according to a press release
from Hannaford Bros. Co., the company that
owns the grocery chain.
Personal information, such as names and
addresses, was not obtained in the theft.
Hannaford was notified of unusual credit
card activity by its data processing company
on Feb. 27 and immediately began working
with law enforcement on an investigation,
said Michael Norton, a company spokesman.


Since the investigation is ongoing and no
arrests have been made, Norton was reluc-
tant to explain how the numbers had been
obtained.
"We know what was doing the
damage here, we know what was
put in the system to deal with the
damage, and we feel that we have
contained that."
Michael Norton
Sweetbay spokesman

But he was confident that a similar breach
would not happen again.
"We know what was doing the damage
here, we know what was put in the system to

Finding a living space that is easy on the
environment and uses no electricity is simple
- just find a tent.
But finding a home with all the comforts of
modem living and without a monthly utility
bill can be a lot more challenging.
"A lot of people who would be inter-
ested in this respect efficiency."
Richard Schackow
local developer

Enter local developer Richard Schackow.
He's planning a unique community of energy
efficient, solar-powered homes and with
two houses nearly done, his vision has already
broken ground.
Besides the solar panel units on the roofs,
which provide clean energy at no cost, the
houses look ordinary from outside. They sit at
the future site of Forest Creek, a tree-flanked
block about two miles north of campus at
Northwest 17th Street and 34th Place. Both are
around 1,600 square feet and have three bed-
rooms and two bathrooms.
But the real science of how these homes
work is in the details.
The ceiling, Schackow said, is coated in
reflective metal shingles that bounce heat
back. Wide overhangs and thick double-pane
windows light the interior naturally without
giving up insulation. Fiberglass doors, granite
countertops and ceramic flooring keep the
rooms cool.
And all the appliances inside meet federal
energy efficiency standards.
During the day the homes stay cool and in-
sulated with little effort. At night excess solar
energy stored earlier is put to use or added to
the city's power grid.
But all that innovation doesn't come cheap.
Schackow estimated that the homes were about
$15,000 pricier than a similar home without all


of the energy-saving doodads.
But, he added, the initial investment is bal-
anced out by several other cost-saving mea-
sures.
Solar rebates from Gainesville Regional
Utilities and the U.S. Department of Energy,
federal tax credits and, of course, no monthly
electric bill add up to make the homes as effi-
cient on wallets as they are on wattage.
The homes are Gainesville's first foray into
no-energy living, though builders in South
Florida and elsewhere have already construct-
ed similar projects.
"A lot of people who would be interested in
this respect efficiency," said Schackow. "They
recycle trash. They care for the environment.
It's kind of like a contribution you make to the
town you live in."




/ A whole-house systems approach considers
the interaction between you, your building
site, your climate, and other elements
including lighting, heating, insulation and
appliances.

Some benefits of using a whole-
house systems approach:
Improved building durability

Reduced utility and maintenance
costs


A healthier and safer indoor
environment

Reduced noise

Increased comfort

4, ALLIGATOR E THURSDAY, MARCH 20,-2008


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
With the future of UF's College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences dean search in question after recent
candidate withdrawals, the search committee will
meet Friday afternoon to decide what to do next.
Pramod Khargonekar, committee chairman
and College of Engineering dean, said the com-
mittee must decide whether to continue the
search.
In February, the committee chose four finalists,
but two of them dropped out in the last week.
Peter Coclanis, associate provost at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
dropped out Tuesday because of UF's continuing
budget crisis and administrative restructuring.
David Featherman, director of the University
of Michigan's Center for Advancing Research &
Solutions for Society, withdrew Friday for per-
sonal reasons.
Khargonekar said the committee did not an-
ticipate this situation, and it needs to evaluate
whether the search is still viable.
"My concern is, given all the things that have
happened, can we really recruit an outstanding


dean to lead the college?" he asked.
UF Provost Janie Fouke, who has final say in
the decision, said she's concerned that only two
candidates are left in the search, especially since
they have similar backgrounds.
"My concern is, given all the things
that have happened, can we really
recruit an outstanding dean to lead
the college?"
Pramod Khargonekar
CLAS dean search committee chairman

Paul D'Anieri and Barbara Romzek, the
remaining dean candidates, both serve as
University of Kansas College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences associate deans, and they have educa-
tional backgrounds in political science.
Meanwhile, UF's CLAS covers the natural sci-
ences, social sciences and humanities.
"This is a very diverse college and so you'd
think if you got a really diverse applicant pool,
you'd see lots of different ideas about what might
represent its future," Fouke said. "We haven't had
that benefit."


Tax time doesn't

have to be taxing


The April 15 tax deadline
is quickly approaching, and
many students don't know
how to file their tax returns or
if they even should.
However, there are several
options available to those who
don't know much about financ-
es or taxes.
Vernon Wright, outreach
coordinator for UF's Office for
Student Financial Affairs, said
students can use a tax agent for
free at the Levin College of Law
under the Volunteer Income
Tax Assistance, a national
organization overseen by the
Internal Revenue Service.
According to its Web site,
the organization hires volun-


teers to help low-income tax-
payers complete their personal
income tax forms.
Students can also use off-
campus tax agen-
Local cies like H&R
News Block or Jackson
Hewitt, though it
will cost them.
Catherine Chitty, a represen-
tative for Jackson Hewitt, said
students who earn less than
$850 a year do not have to file
a tax return.
And there's always an op-
tion to stay independent: The
IRS Web site, www.irs.gov, has
instructions for those who want
to file their own taxes.

Textbooks suit tossed

* STUDENTS WERE SUING FOLLET,
WHICH RUNS THE UF BOOKSTORE.

By KATE KENNEDY and
KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writers

.A class-action lawsuit filed by two
Daytona Beach College students against
the country's largest collegiate-bookstore
chain, which runs the UF Bookstore, was
dismissed by a federal judge Monday.
The students, Thomas Rebman and
Danny Brandner, claimed in 2006 that
Follett Higher Education Group unfairly
overpriced its books and under-compen-
sated buybacks.
Rebman and Brandner sought class-
action status on the suit on behalf of all
students who attend universities that use
Follett.
The U.S. District Court of Orlando
concluded that the case, which sought
to recover $5 million in damages from
Follett, was not grounds for a lawsuit, and
any financial losses the students suffered
were not sufficient for the compensation
they sought.
Follet's national representative could
not be reached for comment, but Lynne
Vaughan, director of UF bookstores, said
the court's ruling proves Follett was in the
right.
Christopher Peterson, an assistant
professor at the Levin College of Law"
who specializes in consumer protection,
agreed. The students' complaints were not
legally sound, Peterson said.
"There's not a legal claim for over-
charging," he said.


WILL THE REAL JESUS PLEASE RISE?
Recent popular books have analyzed the person of Jesus from many perspectives. As Christian faculty, we have each become convinced that the Biblical
picture of Jesus is trustworthy. We are united by the common experience that Jesus Christ gives intellectually and spiritually satisfying answers to our most
important questions. Ask any one of us about the role of the risen Christ in our lives.

But Rebman, one of the plaintiffs,
stands by his allegations.
"The reason they won the lawsuit is
that they have a lot of money," he said of
Follett representatives. "To this date, to be
honest with you, nobody's looked at my
evidence."
Rebman said he's not quite sure what
to do next. He said he's spent thousands
of dollars and several years on what he
called "an exercise of futility."

"The reason they won the lawsuit
is that they have a lot of money.
To this date, to be honest with
you, nobody's looked at my evi-

Still, he said it was a worthy cause. He
only hopes justice might one day come to
pass, he said.

Speech Therapy

Obama's approach can

change campaign tone
If you didn't get the chance to catch Sen. Barack Obama's
speech on race Tuesday in Philadelphia, it wouldn't hurt to
head over to YouTube to watch it.
No matter what your political beliefs are, or whom you hope
to see in the White House come January, his call for "a more
perfect union" was a long overdue, refreshingly apolitical ap-
proach to race relations in America.
And if recent responses are any indication, Obama's attempt
to elevate racial dialogue beyond the sound bytes that have
plagued this election cycle will be successful.
Though his delivery was somewhat subdued, it was impec-
cable and it's even more impressive that the senator was up
late Monday night putting the final touches on what many
now consider the most important speech of his presidential
campaign.
Or maybe we've just been without an eloquent leader for so
long that we've almost forgotten what a real one is supposed to
sound like.
But after Tuesday's speech, it's dear that the leader America
needs sounds a whole lot like Barack Obama.
The speech emerged as an effort for the senator to address
the debate about his relationship to his controversial pastor, the
Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
The pastor's inflammatory sermons which include tell-
ing blacks not to sing "God Bless America" but "God damn
America"- have brought Obama's personal beliefs and reli-
gious affiliations into a decidedly negative light.
So what's a presidential candidate to do?
It would have been easier for Obama to denounce the pastor
entirely. It would have been easier for Obama to condemn the
statements as "un-American."' It would have been easier to do
what any other candidate might have done distract, deflect
and disassociate.
But, instead of employing that expected damage control
and campaign spin, Obama did something so logical and yet
so unprecedented inAmerican politics he explained himself.
With honesty. \
Imagine that.',
He called out the pundits who have used the video of his
pastor in an effort to sidetrack the electorate from looking at
ways to work together to solve common American problems
like affordable health care, adequate education and available
employment.
He explained the context of Wright's impassioned sermons,
without excusing them, and tied them to the generational anger
and bitterness that so many people of that time share.
The fact that Obama is willing to openly disagree with a
controversial opinion and yet attempt to make others under-
stand where those provocative statements are coming from
speaks volumes about his ability to embrace diplomacy with
competence.
While Obama explained that we will have no choice but to
work together and not become victims, he effectively turned
his speech into an enlightening, and yet non-condescending,
discussion of race.
By using the speech to further address the greater problem
in modem America lack of opportunity and corporate greed
- and tying that to what all Americans feel, Obama went be-
yond the racial divide.
By taking a risk and not giving most Americans what they
want to hear, Obama chose to take his moment in history.
By addressing the issue head-on and not allowing television
news fodder to cloud his vision, Obama chose to avoid what
would be the better nightly news clip.
Maybe this is a change we can believe in.

Library parking needs to be changed


t's the first day of spring. Birds are chirping, the sun is
shining and your car is being towed from the side of
Library West.
Well, maybe it's nighttime, and you're just getting a $20
ticket.
Ever since Library West opened, I have used the side
driveway off Union Road as a spot to park when visiting the
library late at night or staying until early morning.
When I plan to be in the building studying until my eyes
bleed or until the library doses whichever comes first
- it's a safe walk from the entrance to my car.
After all, there is designated parking for motorcycles and
scooters, and I have always seen un-ticketed cars parked par-
allel along the right side of the drive.
I have always thought that these spots were too good to
be true. Well, they are.
Sure, there are parking lots adjacent to Stuzin and Criser
halls, but they're always full. There's another lot off Buckman
Drive near the chemistry lab, but I don't know if you've ever
been over there after midnight. I don't recommend it.
The walk just doesn't feel safe. I don't care how many of
those blue light buttons there are on campus someone
shady once tried to approach me, and I am never parking
there again.
My roommate and I frequent the library on most Sundays
and Tuesdays, and have never received a ticket or any kind
of warning from the Transportation and Parking Services on
campus. Apparently, we have just been lucky.
Our luck ran out this week when we pulled in to the
lot and noticed what looked like a parking official standing
against the rear of another car. He was jotting down what
could only be a license plate number in a little notebook. I
immediately rolled down my window to ask if these spots
were not for parked cars.
He politely informed us that this road is designated for
"service vehicles only."


All nine student vehicles parked
parallel down the side street that
night received citations.
I beg anyone to give me a sen-
sible alternative to this convenient
parking, which should in fact be
Rebecca Ganzak available to those people who utilize
editor@alligator.org the library's resources after business
hours. Unless you want to fall victim
to roam towing, forget parking off of
University Avenue. And don't even think about parking in
front of the library in the bike lane.
Because we all know that Union Road is flooded at 1 a.m.
with bikers and pedestrians.
I'm sure UF students have been complaining about park-
ing on campus for generations.
Interestingly enough, this specific argument about park-
ing at the library was made into an issue with Student
Government, and a Student Senate bill asking the University
Police Department to lift parking restrictions after 4:30 p.m.
until 7:30 a.m. However, I can find no evidence that the prob-
lem has been fixed. Unless parked cars are wrongly receiving
tickets between those hours, I'd say we are still in a predica-
ment.
With finals week approaching faster than most of us can
fathom, I think changes need to be made as soon as possible.
Where's my decal for being a good student?
Until then, I guess I will circle the lots off Union Road for
several minutes at a time while trying to find a decent park-
ing space. Or maybe I will be desperate enough to press my
luck and park in a forbidden "service vehicles only" spot.
Besides, I might be able to get out of a ticket since using the
resources my tuition pays for like Library West consti-
tutes a service to the university.

Letters to the Editor
Obama's speech ignored Muslims
I, like many across the country, was deep-
ly moved by Sen. Barack Obama's speech
yesterday. However, despite all of the media
hoopla, I am distressed that there has not
been any public debate about problems with
the speech.
While seeking to "unite" Americans,
Obama went out of his way to exclude
Muslims from the "American dream" he so
eloquently painted for us.
When referencing the Middle East, he
took the Zionist position of attacking "radi-
cal Islam" as the "perverse" cause of conflict
while defending Israel.
And when discussing Americans' rela-
tionships with their religious advisers, he
mentioned pastors, priests and rabbis while
leaving out reference to imams/sheikhs.
In this manner, Obama paints the picture
of an America who is exclusively Protestant,
Roman Catholic or Jewish.
Unfortunately, such disregard is not sur-


prising since Obama has tried to distance
himself from being identified as Muslim
(or even sympathetic to Islam) throughout
his campaign, behaving like a celebrity
who tries to act more feminine or mascu-
line once they have been accused of being
homosexual.
Not once have I heard anyone from the
Obama camp say, "Barack is Christian, but
if he were Muslim, what would be wrong
with that?"
We may be ready to deal with the issue
of racism in America, but it seems that the
problem of Islamophobia is far from being
resolved.

Concealed carry debate exploits tragedy
While I am not one to disagree with
anyone's right to conceal or carry a weapon


in public, I think that this issue has been
blown out of proportion by the recent in-
school violence.
Concealed carry permits are issued for
self defense only, not as a way to arm vigi-
lantes. I believe that they are great for pro-
tecting you on the street or at night.
However, I do not think they are an alter-
native to the police, and to say that having
students carry guns .would be a better solu-
tion to school shootings than the police is to
admit that we put taxpayer money into a
broken system. To use these violent acts as
justification to put guns on campus is ludi-
crous and taking advantage of a tragedy to
push an issue.

Delegates should not be rationed
When Democrats voted Jan. 29 in


Florida's primary, they did so with hopes
that while their candidate might not get
their delegates in the end, it would be a pub-
lic show of support and expression of their
political opinion.
But regrettably, many decided not to vote
because they believed their party when it
said that the state's primary would not in-
fluence the election.
As a result, at a time when Sen.
Hillary Clinton was considered the likely
Democratic candidate, she won the "beauty
contest" that pundits deemed Florida's pri-
mary.
If delegates are to be seated, they should
not be rationed according to this farce of an
election.
Without any form of a revote, the dele-
gates should either be split equally between
the candidates or not seated until after the
nominee is already chosen.

Prof.: Protests help shape opinions on war


WAR, from page 1

the increase to the organizations
Students for a Democratic Society
and Students Taking a Stand
Against the War, which were both
'founded on campus in the past
year.
"People who are today in col-
lege have a much stronger sense of
needing to be involved in politics
than people did four years ago,"
Heaney said.
Today's college sophomores
were high school freshmen when
the war started, he said, which
deeply impacted their developing
political ideologies.
Skeet Surrency, a senior and
member of SDS, said he thinks
the group has been successful in
its year of existence and has made
activism an accepted part of the
UF campus.
But Surrency acknowledged
people's frustrations with larger
activist organizations and said
those feelings stem from more
than a lack of change in the coun-
try's policy.
Many of the larger organiza-
tions are run by small boards of
people who make decisions on
behalf of the group, making it


harder for most individuals to feel
involved, Surrency said.
Though still sympathetic to the
cause, activists outside of the core
group of decision makers feel like
they aren't fully participating, he
said.
"It makes us be able to look
in the mirror and know we're
doing the right thing."
Scott Camil
Gainesville's Veterans for Peace
member

But even if protests do little to
,change policy, Heaney said, they
do serve to change public opinion
- and in that anti-war protesters
have been successful.
In 2004, 19 percent of voters in
Florida's Democratic primary ap-
proved of the war in Iraq, accord-
ing to CNN exit polls. Now, only 9
percent want to keep troops there,
according to 2008 polls.
"When we see public opinion
has turned against the war, pro-
tests have helped to change some
people's minds," Heaney said.
"Where they haven't made a dif-
ference is they haven't changed
President Bush's mind."
However, he added, public


opinion on the war did influence
the 2006 Congressional election,
and, in turn, impacted legislation.
But ending the war isn't the
only way all activist groups gauge
their successes.
Scott Camil, of Gainesville's
Veterans for Peace, said the
group's goal is to educate the pub-
lic and remind them of the war.
"Standing out there smelling
the fumes of those cars isn't really
a healthy thing," he said of the
weekly protests the group holds
on street corners.
"But it's important for us to
maintain a presence, to remind
the public.there's a war going on,"
he said.
Camil believes the group is
succeeding in helping veterans
and discouraging people from
joining the military.
But even if the group accom-
plished nothing, he said, he and
others are doing what they believe
is right.
"It makes us be able to look in
the mirror and know we're doing
the right thing," he said.
"When our children and grand-
children ask, 'What did you do
to stop the war?' we can say we
weren't sitting around with our
heads in the sand."

As UF's first baseman got to the

passed the ball to UF pitcher Tommy

McArthur, Toledo,. third-base-

prepared when they first sat in their
sports wheelchairs. Their shots often
fell short during practice because
they were deprived of the power


they usually get from their legs.
The final score of the 15-minute
game 38-34 in favor of UF was
a bit deceiving. The referee awarded
the Gators 7 points for each basket
and 10 points for 3-point shots. In


actuality, the Florida Force hit 17
shots to UF's five.

$9.7M in donations help fund business building


* CONSTRUCTION ON $23 MILLION
PROJECT TO BEGIN IN SUMMER.

By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Backed by multi-million-dollar dona-
tions, construction on a new building
for UF's business college could start this


summer.
John Kraft, dean of the Warrington
College of Business Administration,
said $9.7 million in donations solidified
plans for the Hough Graduate School of
Business, a $23 million project, starting in
summer.
Kraft said the building, which is
planned to be built in the northeast cor-
ner of campus near Stuzin Hall, could be


ready in January 2010.
William Hough, who was in the col-
lege's first graduating class of
On master's of business adminis-
Campus tration students in 1947 and
the namesake of the graduate
school, donated $5 million, Kraft said.
Chris Brazda, spokesman for the UF
Foundation, the organization that over-
sees UF's endowments, said the rest came


from a $1 million dollar donation from
Tom Shannon, a former Gators football
player, and his wife.
Another $1 million was donated by
John and Mary Lou Dasburg, of Miami.
St. Petersburg resident Jean Wittner, in
honor of her husband Ted Wittner, a UF
alumnus, also donated $1 million.
The remaining $1.7 came from miscel-
laneous funds.


Machen to have final say


TASER, from-page 1

She said one of the committee's
suggestions asks UF to provide a
description of its free speech and
security policies to speakers and au-
dience members before UF events.
Another recommendation stated
that event organizers, specifically
Accent, the student-run speakers
bureau that organized Kerry's
September speech, should not
attempt to censor any audience
member's written questions.
Submitted questions during
speeches should only be tossed for
technical reasons, such as if they
are too long or too similar to other
questions.
After the meeting, Machen said
he was pleased with the commit-
tee's recommendations so'far, but
he hasn't studied the research in-
depth. Once finalized during the
committee's meeting next month,
the suggestions will be sent to
Machen to accept or decline, Tanzer
said after the forum.
After she explained the recom-


mendations, three students posed
questions to the committee during
time allotted for public input.
"Amnesty International has
actually called them instru-
ments of torture, and I
don't think that that should

committee's consideration of the
weapon she said has spurned an
international safety issue the
Taser.
"Amnesty International has ac-
tually called them instruments of
torture, and I don't think that that
should be taken lightly," Westaway
said.

vent suicides, since first being made

Becoming a missionary is like
majoring in philosophy no matter
how good your intentions are, you'll
never be rich.
That's why UF alumnus Chris
Ammen started a company to help
those who depend on others' gener-
osity for their daily bread.
The company, Twenty-eight
Nineteen Photography, combines
Ammens' passion for photograph-
ing with his zeal for helping
Christian ministries.
The company is named after a
Bible verse, Matthew 28:19, in which
Christians are commanded to go
and make disciples of the world.
"One hundred percent of the


profit goes to helping missionaries,"
Ammen said.
He said he had the idea for
the company after spending three
months last summer raising money
so he could be on staff with Campus
Crusade for Christ, a Christian cam-
pus organization.
During this time, Ammen said he
realized how hard it is for missionar-
ies to raise financial support.
The process is so difficult, he
said, that many missionaries quit
due to inadequate funds.
"It's just tough to maintain sup-
port," he said. "Many people who
are called to be missionaries aren't
called to be support-raisers."

* Allure of power confusing


The news media had a field day this past week:
New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer was discovered to
have spent more than $80,000 on prostitutes.
Then came the discovery that one of his work-
ing girls, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, was a 22-year-
old aspiring musician. She was tan, toned, bru-
nette and not unlike many of us co-eds. Indeed,
her MySpace photos looked similar to those of
my own friends on Spring Break.
I haven't really been interested in why an in-
fluential, successful man risked everything. That
story's been told. I was, however, completely
engrossed by his lady of the night.
* You see, I always imagined prostitutes to be
like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, walking on
Sharpied high heels, speaking incorrect grammar
and sporting cut-up outfits.
But Spitzer's siren was none of those things.
So what would prompt a privileged, put-together
woman to become a call girl? Sure the Manolo
Blahniks and trips to St. Tropez are lavish and
enviable, but psychologically, the job's got to get
to you.
Then I realized that mentally it came down to
power. And what is more powerful than eliciting
money in exchange for just, well, y6u?
It made me think aren't we all guilty of us-
ing sex or, for women especially, our sexual allure
as a power tool? Sure we're not getting paid but
we are garnering self-worth and with it, power.
I'll be the first to admit that I have attempted
to acquire both through sex.
After all, the pursuit of attaining sex of
giving in to it, of rolling around the sheets with


reckless abandonment -
lends itself a boost in the
old self-esteem meter. ,.
The concept is noth- '--* -
ing new, but in today's 1
society isn't it also a bit
pathetic?
Women have so many other options for
earning self-respect. Going to college is a prime
example. In fact, doesn't using sexuality to secure
esteem seem somewhat desperate and passe?
There's a woman with a viable opportunity of
leading the free world, for crying out loud. Surely
women have come further than this.
At the same time, sexual experimentation
can be incredibly freeing. Unlike high-priced call
girls, we can pick our partners, our positions, our
place. We choose to be hunter or huntress, sub-
missive or aggressive, good girl Jennifer Aniston
or vixen Angelina Jolie.
It all leaves my head spinning. Sex for power:
demoralizing or liberating?
Perhaps it's a bit of both. Making a career out
of selling oneself or becoming a trophy wife will
only lead to disappointment. After all, looks will
fade and then what marketable skills can you ac-
tually reference on a resume?
Furthermore, as college students engaging in
the hookup culture, we need to be equally aware
that growing up requires more than knowledge
of the Kama Sutra and post-hookup etiquette. It
requires the maturity to recognize that power is
best attained through achievement.
Nothing is sexier than that.

'Super Smash Bros. Brawl' updates little on old formula


ALLIE CONTI I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


Though it didn't take as long
as Guns 'n' Roses' "Chinese
Democracy," (still waiting, Axl...)
"Super Smash Bros. Brawl" was a
long time in the making.
It took seven years for de-
velopers to come up with the
Nintendo Wii sequel to Nintendo
GameCube's best-selling "Super
Smash Bros. Melee," which al-
lows players to duke it out as
established franchise characters
in implausible combat situations.
For the casual game fan, the
series provides a foray into mind-
less button smashing. For the en-
thusiast, it provides a chance to
craft an art or hone a science.
As a result of the number of
dedicated "Smashers," video


game retailer GameStop is host-
ing a tournament which began on
the game's launch date in select-
ed stores and will continue until
April 12 when the finals will take
place in San Jose, California.
The Round 1 tournaments
spawned long lines which began
hours before the midnight release
and were filled with competitors
who had never before played the
game.
The demographics of the
line were strange, consisting
of children with their mothers,
teenage hoodlums and pockets
of middle-aged men. Children
dominated the competition, and
most of them made it past their
first battles.


Web sites like "The Dojo," a
Super Smash Bros. Brawl fan site,
was a popular way for many fans
gain an edge on the competition
without being able to prepare in
the literal sense.
The tournament itself
consisted of one-minute K
Brawls with all items, .j t
weapons and abilities
on. The controls on the
Wii-mote were difficult
to master initially and
players who did not plan
ahead by reading about Supe
the controls online were Bros
left woefully in the digital $49.99
dust.
The major change in game
play in this installment of the
series comes from the introduc-
tion of and item called a Smash


Ball. After hitting this randomly
appearing glowing orb several
times and breaking it open, the
player can unleash a game-break-
ing attack.
Oddly, the single best
PE improvement in this
H ) party game is in single-
player game play.
Adventure Mode
now operates as a side-
scrolling fighting game,
much like "Kirby's
Adventure" or "Super
r Smash Mario World."
s. Brawl This platform-game
- Amazon within a fighting-game is
a great way to break the
monotony of straight up cartoon
violence, adding an element of
strategy and finesse into an oth-
erwise all-out slam-fest.


Other improvements include
the ability to play Event Mode
cooperatively with a friend, and
of course, the much anticipated
ability to play online through the
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi mode
currently lags and runs fairly
slowly. Nintendo claims that the
current speed is a result of the
newness and the popularity of
the game, and that things will
run more smoothly after a while.
Overall, "Super Smash Bros.
Brawl" is the new must-have
franchise game for the Nintendo
Wii.
Although it plays as an up-
dated version of its predecessor,
Nintendo has sagaciously ap-
plied their number one credo:
Don't fix what isn't broken.


More of the same from Snoop


ADRIAN RUHI )
AVENUE WRITER
Somehow, against the odds of. the
one-hit-wonder factory that domi-
nates the current hip-hop marketplace,
Snoop Dogg has pushed on through to
a 16-year career. And while his
lazy cohort Dr. Dre has only
managed to throw us two al-
bums in as much time, Snoop is
still relevant on his ninth opus,
"Ego Trippin'."
First, let's cut to the chase.
Snoop has not had a great Snool
album since his 1993 debut, Ego 1
"Doggystyle." His foray into No Limit
Records in the late '90s was awful, but.
luckily his most recent works have been
of a higher caliber, if not overly bloated
with tracks. "Ego Trippin'" is more of
the same: several standout songs are
buried in a mess of 21 tracks, with at
least seven or eight being completely
disposable.
What stands out most on the album
is the emphasis on '70s and '80s R&B
funk by artists like Prince and Roger


p-
r1


Troutman, with many songs featuring
synthesizers, brass arrangements and
the talkbox, which makes the singer
sound robotic (for the young readers,
think T-Pain). The hilarious "Sexual
Eruption" and a cover of The Time's
"Cool" manage to sound fresh and
would fit perfectly at home at
the skating rink.
"Ego Trippin'" also features
some of the best G-Funk since
the Death Row Records days,
with "Press Play," "Neva Have
Dogg- 2 Worry" and "Let It Out,"
ppin' with Snoop's silky-smooth flow
weaving out of funky bass lines
and vibrant saxophone solos.
Unfortunately, the remaining major-
ity of the album is boring and contrived,
with "Life Of Da Party," "Whateva U
Do" and "Staxxx In My Jeans" rehash-
ing the same West Coast club sound in
use since the late '90s.
Worst of all is the painfully out-of-
place "My Medicine," a country duet
with Snoop Dogg and Everlast paying
tribute to Johnny Cash. Huh?

Avenue takes on: living abroad

CATHERINE CASE I AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


When I signed up to study abroad, I
knew it would be a learning experience
like no other. However, I don't think I could
have truly predicted the methods or lessons
I would, or still will, encounter while living
in a foreign country.
After two months of living in Madrid,
I can now say that my
biggest lesson so far has I
been the importance of the
home-cooked meal. you have
I live in a 10-bedroom plastic grc
house innorthwest Madrid,
a residential area lacking
in restaurants. There are
a couple of "cervecerias"
nearby, which offer beer, a variety of tapas
(small portions, mostly fried) and bocadillos
- sandwiches that typically feature some
sort of ham. But as a health-conscious eater,
cervecerias don't quite cut it.
My roommates and I heard of a nearby
food store with everything you could imag-
ine at low prices. Intrigued by the descrip-
tion, I decided to check it out.
In true Madrid style, the result was sur-
prising. This wonder-store, called Al Campo,
is located inside of a mall and is reminiscent

of a Super Wal-Mart household goods,
clothes and more on one floor, with a huge
grocery store on another.
Once a week, I venture to the mall, always
toting overnight-sized bags since in Spain
you have to pay for plastic grocery bags. I
stock up on the basics: chicken, vegetables,
pasta and, of course, wine.
Spain On a side note, Al
Campo's guarantee of low
-o pay for prices is no joke. I buy 54-
'ery bags. Euro-cent wines that are
delicious. I also go for lux-
ury goods such as peanut
butter, which sets me back
about three Euros a jar.
In Gainesville, I can easily pop into Roly
Poly for lunch and then Tijuana Flats for din-
ner, but fast, cheap dining just isn't as read-
ily available here.
I have mastered making a delicious pasta
dish and can even make hummus from
scratch.
After two months, I can say that I learned
more about cooking than I ever would have
in Gainesville because I was forced to, and
this lesson is invaluable. As far as learning
Spanish, that is another story.

Delicious Easter candies based on pagan traditions


SARAH KIENY I AVENUE WRITER

Despite the tight-fitting suits and pastel
crinoline dresses, children love Easter.
There's something magical about doling
out chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks
and creme eggs for good boys and girls.'
If all this seems a little too irreligious to
originate from Christian traditions though, it
is because almost all the icons associated with
Easter stem from pagan beliefs.
As lore goes, the goddess of spring, Eostre,
turned a flightless chick into a white hare that
could lay colorful eggs only one day a year, the
Festival of Eostre. From this story, three of the
most popular holiday confections were born.
Peeps were originally developed at the
Rodda Candy Co. in Pennsylvania in the
1950s. Each candy was made by hand and the
process took 27 hours. When Just Born bought
the company in 1953, they were able to mecha-


nize the procedure for mass consumption and
instant popularity by the next Easter.
The squishy Peeps have expanded their
collection to five colors of bunnies and various
notable holiday figures, but the traditional yel-
low Peeps are still the most popular.
They're one of my favorite candies year-
round, but I like to enjoy them as cold as pos-
sible, straight out of the freezer, though I hear,
they do wonders in the micro- wave.
As for the white hare in the
Eostre story, it has been inter-
preted in a variety of ways.
The arrival of Oschter -
Haws, who was second
in likeability only to Santa
Claus, meant gifts of
sweets and colored eggs to
European children.
The Germans coined the
term Easter Bunny in the late
1500s, and the Pennsylvania Dutch trans-


ported the idea to America two centuries later.
Sugared pastry bunnies date back to the 1800s,
while molded chocolate confections caught on
stateside.
Today's Easter basket isn't complete un-
less there's a bunny nestled cozily among the
strands of plastic grass.
Colored eggs -are another essential part
of Easter, whether they are made of plastic
and filled with candy, or authentic, dip-dyed
chicken eggs.
The most popular candy variation
te a on the Easter egg, how-
S', ever, is the Cadbury
Creme Egg.
The London-based
Cadbury Trebor
Bassett has made the
number one brand of filled eggs
since 1971.
The eggs are created by filling
chocolate half-eggs with white fon-


dant and a dab of yellow fondant to simulate
the yolk, according to the Cadbury Web site.
Hershey's now holds the title to manufacture
Cadbury products in America, and as a re-
sult, our health-conscious eggs are .2 ounces
lighter.
With the eggs being produced only from
New Year's Day to Easter, the rarity alone
makes this treat a delight.
Everyone remembers the classic Cadbury
Creme Egg ads with a white rabbit that
ducks like a chicken, this spot unknowingly
ties together all three symbols of the goddess
Eostre.
There is sweet irony in the fact that the
icons of one of the most important holidays on
the Christian calendar has its origins in pagan
beliefs.
Regardless of its beginnings, no one can
resist meandering down the colorful candy-
laden aisles and picking up a chick or egg to
reminisce and indulge.

Great live performances marked by the 'It' factor


My Spring Break was awesome.
Sure, you might not believe me since I
spent most of it at home alone reading, play-
ing guitar and following around the neigh-
bor's cat with a camera in hopes of capturing
a golden moment to create a smash hit on
icanhascheezburger.com, but it was freaking
sweet. Why? Because I experienced one night
of fantastic live music.
One great show can alter more than just
a moment it can stay with you long after
and even change your life, offering new in-
spirations and a slightly different approach
to things. This is, of course, a rare occurrence,
which only a handful of bands can do.
This time, the band that did it for me was a
Baroque folk/pop group called Fleet Foxes.
The reason the show was so great? It wasn't
an incendiary performance with crazy antics,
there were no special effects and it wasn't the
personality of one individual in the group.
The best answer I can offer as to why the
show was phenomenal is that Fleet Foxes pos-
sesses the almost undefinable quality that I
will refer to as "It."
Though it does play a factor, It is not just
that the sound quality is terrific and a band's


songs are fantastic. I've seen plenty of shows
from bands, whose albums I adore, that have
. only left me saying, "Eh, good but not great."
So let me try to break down what It is and
why Fleet Foxes made me totally forget my
malaise and ennui for bland classes, tiring
work and life in general.

Charisma
"Charisma? Really? Dude, that's not very
undefinable," you say. Yeah, maybe not, but
my definition involves a lot more than just
schmoozing the audience to warm smiles with
banter similar to that of a lounge singer.
Sure, there needs to be a connection with
the audience, but it doesn't have to be overt. It
can be as simple as smiling at the first row dur-
ing the sound check or being polite when they
need to move a monitor you're leaning on.
The main part about It charisma is the
"hang-out factor," which entails you wanting
to hang out with the band after the show, but
you have no idea why.
Take the Strokes for example (before they
put out "First Impressions of Earth"). They're
pretty much jerks on stage, yet somehow after
seeing them live, the It factor makes you want


to go to Waffle House with them.

Performance
This has a lot more to do than just technical
proficiency. Someone could get up on stage
and shred guitar but still suck big time.
It's really about a band fusing into one
single entity. It's also important for a group
to be into the music they're playing. The way
members present themselves on stage has a
great impact on what the audience takes away.
But this is where the It factor comes in. Faces
that would usually look ridiculously con-
trived (furrowed brows and squinted eyes of
deep immersion) look absolutely sincere and
downright awesome for bands who have It.
Stage antics have a lot to do with how a
show is perceived too, but many bands take
it too far. For bands that have It, things they
do on stage feel organic, natural and sponta-
neous. Take the band the Wrens, for example.
Dudes are like 40 but they go absolutely ba-
nanas throwing instruments into the air,
climbing on top of huge monitor cabinets, etc.
It never feels contrived. Oh, and just as a side
note: The Wrens are pretty much a one-band
example justifying live music, indie rock and


probably New Jersey.
But take a group
like the Flaming
Lips. You know what
to expect, and yeah,
Wayne Coyne delivers
on those expectations, but it ends up feeling
manufactured. Bottom line: The Flaming Lips
doesn't have It. Gasp!

Atmosphere
There's only so much a band can control
(however unconciously) about its It factor. The
rest depends on the atmosphere.
Smaller venues are always going have a
better chance for the It factor to hit you. Fewer
people makes it feel like you're one of a select
few to be in the presence of greatness.
The audience also makes a huge difference.
Is it quiet, or are scenesters talking loudly
while the band plays? Are people standing
there taking it in, or are you constantly getting
cheap beer spilled on you?
All of these factors will, of course, vary
from person to person, but the point is to go to
shows. You never know when your expecta-
tions will be exceeded and you'll find It.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators romp to win NIT opener
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

Maybe it was nerves. Maybe it was the
do-or-die atmosphere. Or perhaps it was
just San Diego State.
Regardless, the Gators turned the
first round of the National Invitational
S Tournament into a nostalgic blowout,
crushing the overmatched Aztecs 73-49.
For the first time in ages, UF easily ap-
peared to be the best team on the floor and
seemed to play with a chip on its heavily
damaged shoulders.
The team gathered before the game for a
unique defensive drill.
r t The players shuffled from side to side
and shouted at one another.
The act seemed a response to the Gators'
decision to commit on both sides of the floor,
something dearly evident in this game.
""Walt (Hodge) and our team, we wanted
to do that just to get out heads focused on
our defensive end," guard Nick Calathes
said. "That helped get us more hyped and
S more energized."
UF held the Aztecs to just 49 points on
21-of-49 shooting.
UF coach Billy Donovan said afterward
his decision to kick the team out of the prac-
tice facility seems to have made its mark..
"They've taken well to it," Donovan
said. "I've seen a great few days of practice,
and I'm proud of the way they came out
J and focused tonight."
The Gators came out strong, connecting
on 45.2 percent from the field and making 5
of 9 from beyond the arc as they jumped to
a 35-23 first-half lead.
t UF doubled up the San Diego State on
the boards, pulling down 22 to the Aztecs'
.. .11.
Calathes anchored the Gators' dominant
period.
The freshman scored nearly a third of
Jeremiah Stanley/ Alligator the team's total, tallying 10 points.

Wilson halts


transfer plans,


practices

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

James Wilson isn't gone just yet.
The freshman offensive lineman, who
had requested to transfer from UF, suited up
Wednesday for the first day of spring practice
despite saying earlier that he wouldn't do so.
Wilson rated one of the top high school
players in the nation in 2007 sat out last season
after two surgeries on his left knee. He said he
made the decision to practice on Tuesday.
"I didn't want to have any regrets," he said.
"I'm a competitor. I've heard a lot of rumors


saying that I'm not, and I just
wanted to show people what
I do and get better in the long
run."
Wilson spent time in non-
contact drills with fellow in-
jured lineman Phil Trautwein
and hopes to be full-go in two
or three weeks.
Wilson had braces on


both knees but said he was healthy after having
microfracture surgeries to repair meniscal dam-
age, the same procedure former Ohio State and
current Portland Trail Blazers basketball player
Greg Oden underwent.
"I've been able to put a lot of pressure on it
and pull and run and everything, so it's looking
good right now," Wilson said.
A teammate of quarterback Tim Tebow at
Nease High, the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder was ru-
mored to be considering a move to Wake Forest,
but now he says he will delay his choice to stay
or leave until after spring football.

Triples pace No. 3 UF to non-conference win against Iowa


* BROMBACHER STAYED PERFECT
AFTER FIVE SHUTOUT INNINGS.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Good things are coming in threes for the
Gators these days.
In the newest rankings, UF passed UCLA
to take the No. 3 position, right behind


Southeastern Conference foe Alabama and
Arizona State.
"It's awesome," third baseman Corrie
Brooks said. "It's the highest we've ever been
ranked, so other teams are going to be looking
to beat us."
Wednesday night Iowa came to Gainesville
to do its best to knock off the Gators.
Behind a solid pitching performance by
three different Gators, UF (32-2, 7-1 SEC)
earned a hard-fought 6-1 victory against the
Hawkeyes (18-9).


Freshman Stephanie Brombacher (12-0)
kept her unblemished record intact, pitching
five innings and allowing just one run.
Brombacher, who had a
stellar non-conference sea-
son, has pitched extremely
well as the opposition has
Softba II become tougher.
"Last week was her best
week of the year," UF coach
Tim Walton said. "She didn't shut anybody
out, but she pitched her best games of the


year."
Freshmen Kelsey Bruder and Kristen
Adkins pitched the sixth and seventh, respec-
tively, without allowing a run.
Offensively, the Gators broke open the
game in the second inning by utilizing the
three-bagger.
With the bases loaded and two outs, Brooks
came to the plate and ripped a triple into the
right-center field gap.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL


Gators begin NIT at home


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org

Depree Bowden has not played her final
game in the O'Connell Center after all.
UF received word Wednesday that it will
host its second-round National Invitation
Tournament game on Monday at 7 p.m. The
Gators (18-13) will play the winner of Friday's
Sodth Florida at Florida Gulf Coast matchup.
"Hopefully, we get a home game," Bowden
said Tuesday before learning UF would play
at home. "I'll be honored to play back in the
O'Dome."
Bowden's wish came true, but it wasn't
automatic, despite the fact that UF earned a
first-round bye and would be considered the
"higher-seeded" team.
In order to attempt to host games, schools
had to make bids to Triple Crown, the company
that sponsors the WNIT. Bids consider many
factors, including a school's fan base, but also
include the dollar amount the school is willing
to pay.
Florida Gulf Coast made a $30,000 bid to
host Friday's game, according to a Fort Myers
News-Press report.
Separate bids had to be made for the second


round, and it was rumored UF's monetary offer
would not have topped the Eagles' bid. South
Florida would not have been eligible to host
because it had agreed to host first- and second-
round games of the men's NCAA Tournament
this weekend.
Wednesday's announcement came as a bit
of a surprise because the location of Monday's
game wasn't set to be deter-
mined until after Friday's
outcome.
The Gators have had
success at home, going 13-5
inside the O'Dome, includ-
ing big wins against NCAA
Tournament-bound squads
Bowden Xavier and Auburn.
"We are excited about
continuing our season and having a chance to
do so on our home court and in front of our
home fans," UF coach Amanda Butler said in
a press release.
"Bringing postseason basketball to the
O'Connell Center is a credit to the way our
team has performed all year at home, the com-
mitment our administration has to the success
of our women's basketball program and our
supportive fans, who have helped make the
O'Connell Center a special place to play."


UF takes second place


* THE GATORS FINISHED 16
STROKES BACK.

By ANDY HUTCHINS
Alligator Writer

Golf is, some say, a game of inches.
On Wednesday, the UF women's
golf team just tried not to yield feet.
Scores soared at the final round of
the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational
in Austin, Texas, as gusts continued
to blast the University of Texas Golf
Club a day after inclement weather
canceled the second round.
How tough was it?
The Gators' 31-over 319 was the
team's worst mark of the season, a
whopping 12 shots worse than their
307 at the Ann Rhoads Intercollegiate
in October.
Yet it was still Wednesday's low-
est round. Despite the team's perfor-
mance, UF, which finished at 48-over,


couldn't quite catch first-round leader
New Mexico, which fired a 32-over
320 to edge the Gators by one stroke
at 47-over.
Given the circumstances, this
may be the season's most remarkable
outing. The brutal conditions left no
scorecard unscathed.
Whitney Myers' 76 tied her with
Kansas State's Michelle Regan for the
day's low round by an individual, but
a bogey on her final hole cost her a
share of medallist hoAors. The senior
finished at 8-over for the tournament,
one shot behind Arkansas' Stacy
Lewis.
Redshirt junior Ornella Jouven sus-
tained three consecutive double-bo-
geys on her back nine and still finished
tied for fourth after an 83 Wednesday.
Yet this week may be her finest
hour as a UF player, as her 72 on
Monday was the best of the tourna-
ment, and the fourth-place finish tied
her career best.

Saints earn comeback win


By SHANNON MCCARTHY
Alligator Writer
Any doubts about the importance of Wednesday
afternoon's game for Santa Fe Community College
were erased when Saints ace Andy Mee took the
mound with a 10-10 tie in the ninth inning, his first
relief appearance of the year.
Mee sat-down Lake City Community College
(19-13) in order on the strength of two strikeouts,
and then the player who had started off the Saints'
scoring ended it. Shortstop Tyler Cook's walk-off
single capped a victory that saw SFCC (19-12)
overcome a 10-4 deficit and put the brakes on a
two-game skid.
"We know how that feels, so it was nice to give
that back to somebody," SFCC coach Johnny Wiggs
said.
Cook led off the game with the first home run
of his college career, and designated hitter Trace
Venegas added a shot of his own two batters later to
give the Saints a quick 2-0 lead.
But on a gusty day with the wind blowing out
hard to left-center field, the Saints' pitching strug-
gled, with starter Brandon Neff giving up four runs
in the third inning and lefty reliever Ryan Wolfe do-
ing the same in the fifth. The Timberwolves tacked
on two more runs in the top of the sixth inning to
build their lead to six runs.
"Today was a difficult day to be a pitcher," Wiggs


said. "Balls were moving that normally wouldn't
move, your breaking ball is breaking more, and if a
ball started two feet high, it bounced."
Leftfielder Nathan Hartman sparked the
comeback, leading off the bottom of the sixth with
SFCC's third homerun of the day. The Saints added
two more runs that inning and three in the seventh
to even the score.
"You knew today you were never out of the
game," Wiggs said. "You knew you always had a
chance for a big inning with these kind of condi-
tions."
"Today was a difficult day to be a
pitcher."
Johnny Wiggs
SFCC baseball coach

Reliever Shane McIntyre combined with Mee
for three scoreless innings, and Hartman led off the
bottom of the ninth inning with a scorching double,
setting up Cook's game-winning hit.
The Saints pounded out 20 hits on a day that
dearly favored the hitters. Cook led the way at the
plate, going 5 for 6 with two RBIs and scoring three
runs. Eugene Gamett was 3 for 5 with three RBIs.
Venegas and Mee each contributed two RBIs.
"I hope we look back at the end of the year and
say this was a win that really carried us on to the
conference championship," Wiggs said.


UF heads to NCAAs


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
As the women's swimming
and diving team races for the
last time at the NCAA Women's
Championships, it will have a few
things in its favor.
The team is coached by
the Southeastern Conference
Women's Coach of the Year, Gregg
Troy. The team finished the season
ranked third in the country during
the dual-meet season.
At the SEC Championships,
the team nabbed a second-place
finish behind defending national
champion Auburn and set four
new SEC records along the way.
The NCAA Championships,
which start Thursday in
Columbus, Ohio, is the premier
opportunity for the team to show
its talent against the nation's best.
"We've got a good group here,


and they're excited to be here,"
Troy said.
The women's team brought
14 swimmers and two divers. So
far this season, the women have
posted an 11-1 record, including
a win against Auburn. Despite
the No. 3 ranking, Troy and his
team know the dual-meet season
has no bearing%
on the next few
"In the
Swi. championship
Swimming season, you find
out who the real
swimmers are," Troy said.
If the women hope to finish
as national champions, they will
have to swim mistake-free and
one-up their performance at the
SEC Championships.
"It's time for the season to be
over," Troy said. "We need to see
where we're at."

Gators dominate overmatched Aztecs in empty O'Dome Saniegotate49 M. P

HOOPS, from page 25


alorg with two blocks and two steals.
The intensity of the opening period shared
more similarities with an NBA contest than a
rowdy college atmosphere.
Those in the first row behind the basket
could hear the coaches shout. Included in the
banter was the constant lobbying of Aztecs
coach Steve Fisher, who could be heard scream-
ing "Of all things to call, you call that?"
Ie repeated that same sentence three times.
At one point, Speights told an Aztecs player
to come off the bench and help guard him.


The teams combined to play a stale brand of
basketball, reflected by the relatively tame 5,188
fans in the stands. To put that in perspective,
10,444 people showed up
for UF's exhibition contest
against Flagler.
The second half was much
of the same.
The Gators were too tal-
ented and too athletic for the
Aztecs.
Calathes San Diego State had dif-
ficulty mounting any consis-
tent attack and allowed UF several shots each
possession.


UF owned the glass, turned second-chance
points into constant daggers and went on five
separate runs of 6-0 or better in the contest.
The tallest Aztec Chris Lamb measures
6-foot-10 and played just nine minutes.
The Gators keyed on the mismatch inside
and outscored the Aztecs 40-28 in the paint.
"Wins always feel good," Werner said.
For the Gators, the NIT victory may not mea-
sure up to their preseason hopes, but for most is
still means something.
"We can still make history in Gainesville,"
Calathes said. "There's no NIT banner here."
UF will now ready for second-round action
against Creighton on Friday at 9:30 p.m.

Pierre-Louis remembers deceased former teammate

FOOT, from page 25


narrmsn ulamonu / lllg iOar masl,
UF cornerback Wondy Pierre-Louis defends receiver Justin Williams
during the Gators' opening spring practice Wednesday.


"I'm still thinking about it, but I want to
keep an open mind and have a chance to play
with the guys," he said. "I'm still weighing my
options."
Wilson has requested a release from his
scholarship several times, but head coach
Urban Meyer has relented, saying he will wait
until the end of the semester to give Wilson
time to think it over.
"I didn't really feel dose to the team with
being hurt," Wilson said. "I guess you could
say I had a little bit of a negative demeanor
about it. As I get out here it's starting to look
better. Everybody gets along great and treats
each other with respect. I love pretty much
everybody on the team."

PIERRE-LOUIS MOURNS FORMER TEAMMATE:
UCF wide receiver Ereck Plancher, who died
after a run at a team workout Tuesday, was
a teammate of UF cornerback Wondy Pierre-
Louis at Naples Lely High.
Pierre-Louis said he heard the news in a
phone call from a Lely teacher.
"(Plancher) would keep everybody on the
team straight," Pierre-Louis said. "He was an
underclassman, but everybody would look up
to him. He was a good kid."

BELICHICK AT PRACTICE: New England
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick attended
UF's practice Wednesday to meet with Gators
who are headed to the NFL Draft.
Belichick later joined Meyer at the UF bas-
ketball team's win against San Diego State. The
two are friends and have frequently called each
other for advice in the past.

Paculba backs up SEC

honors with big bat

SOFT, from page 25

"You never want to leave runners on, especially
with the bases loaded," Brooks said.
Junior Kim Waleszonia came up next and hit
a triple of her own this one into the other gap
- scoring Brooks from third.
UF would add one more run in the inning when
Waleszonia crossed the plate in a double steal.
In the fifth inning, second baseman Aja Paculba
drove in Brooks for the sixth Gators run.
Paculba, who wears No. 3 for the Gators, had
another strong game coming off
an SEC Freshman of the Week
selection.
She led the team with a .438
batting average against Alabama
Softball and Arkansas.
She reached base in every game
and drove in two game-winning RBIs against the
Razorbacks and scored a game-winning run in the
three game sweep of Arkansas.
"It's an awesome feeling," Paculba said. "I called
my mom right away."
After the game, Walton was quick to deny the
theory that the game against Iowa and the upcom-
ing weekend series against Longwood (17-7) are
breaks from the tough SEC schedule.
But with a sweep against the Lancers and a slip
up by Alabama or Arizona State, the Gators could
be looking at good things coming in twos or ones
- like a national ranking.
