Faculty question Machen on restructuring


Budget, CLAS
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

UF President Bernie Machen's
recent decision to restructure his
administration may have been
well-received by UF's Board of
Trustees at its meeting last week,


dean search also discussed


but at a Faculty Senate meeting
Thursday, faculty members ques-
tioned Machen about the changes.
After Machen gave his usual
report, several faculty members
asked him how the restructur-
ing would affect the search for a
new College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences dean, especially since


two of four remaining candidates
recently withdrew.
The administration change
will move budget operations,
formerly handled by the Office
of the Provost, and the University
. Controller's Office to the office of
Matt Fajack, UF's chief financial
officer.


Machen said during the
Thursday meeting that he hopes
the move will
help UF better
manage its fund-
ing and find
more financial
resources.
He said the
Machen only danger UF
faces is that "the
academics won't have the abso-


lute control over the major deci-
sions that involve the university."
Machen assured faculty that
he'd watch developments care-
fully to make sure that didn't hap-
pen. He said the changes would
be phased in during the next six to
nine months, and he would wel-
come faculty input on whether the
new approach is working.

Grad fee process changed


* STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO PAY
FEES AFTER RECEIVING PAYCHECKS.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

After months of protests, graduate
assistants have won: Academic fees will
now be deducted from their UF paychecks
instead of being due before checks are
distributed.
Graduate assistants, like all UF stu-
dents, must pay fees every semester based


on the number of credit hours they are
taking.
A new policy, approved Tuesday by
graduate school administrators, will go
into effect in January. However, students'
who can't pay the
UF fee on time in the
Administration fall can expect
a more relaxed
appeal process, said Cecilia Amador,
Graduate Student Council vice president.

graduate school, met with representa-

UF's Florida Tomorrow capital cam-
paign is experiencing a slow-down in
donations due to the national economic
decline, and university officials said they
are bracing for tougher times ahead.
Paul Robell, head of the UF Foundation,
which oversees UF donations and endow-
ments, said the economy could be a severe
detriment to the campaign the largest
fundraising effort in UF's history.
UF hopes to raise $1.5 billion by
September 2012.
"The biggest predictor of fundraising
success is the stock market, and when the
stock market is down and volatile like it
is now, it negatively affects fundraising,"
Robell said.
To date, UF has raised a total of $612


million in gifts and pledges. The cam-
paign started in July 2005 and entered the
public phase in September 2007.
Since the public phase began, UF has
received a record-high $100 million in
donations. But Robell said that number
doesn't mean UF's campaign is safe from
economic trouble.
"The biggest predictor of fundrais-
ing success is the stock market."
Paul Robell
head of the UF Foundation

That public phase included December
- historically the most successful fund-
raising month because it's the last chance
to write off donations for that year's taxes,
he said.

SFCC

Iraq war veterans discuss experiences at SFCC


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer
For Anthony Maroun, a cor-
poral in the U.S. Marine Corps,
it was an air conditioner that
changed his feelings about fight-
ing in Iraq.
As the team leader of his unit,
it was part of Maroun's job to
keep the Dell computers they
used from overheating in the
desert climate. But as hard as he
tried, Maroun couldn't manage to
get the necessary air conditioner,
which meant his unit couldn't do
its mission.
"I finally asked a friend of
mine, this contractor, to help me
out," Maroun said. "He got the
air conditioner so fast. But me,
a leader in the Marines, wasn't
connected enough to get the
equipment we needed."
Maroun said for him, that air
conditioner stood for the "corpo-
rate takeover of a country."
He was one of seven veterans
of the Iraq war who spoke on a
panel Thursday night at SFCC to
an audience of about 90 people.
Scott Camil, a Vietnam War
veteran and coordinator of
Gainesville's chapter of Veterans
For Peace, organized the event
because he said he felt the men
had definitely earned the right to
speak, no matter how they felt.
The Santa Fe Democratic
Saints, the Santa Fe Global
Society Club and the Community
Coalition Against War and
Terrorism also sponsored the


event.
Most veterans said fighting
was difficult, but the men dif-
fered >on whether they support
the Iraq war.
Clifton Hicks, who served in
the Army, described having only
one bottle of water and one meal
a day at one point while in Iraq.
"But we could watch these


big-screen TVs," he said. "It
was wild how they spent their
money."
Hicks testified last week
in Washington, D.C., before
Congress as part of Winter
Soldier, an event where hundreds
of veterans gathered to describe
the atrocities they committed and
witnessed in Iraq.


Zollie Goodman, an aircraft
director in the Navy who testi-
fied with Hicks, read a letter he'd
written to his wife during his
time in Iraq.
"War is pure manufactured
evil," he read. "I miss you."
The letter, he said, expressed
the mentality of a man split be-
tween high-intensity situations

and then long periods of down-
time.
One man in the audience
stood up to thank the veterans,
calling them all heroes.
"You aren't heroes," said an-
other audience member, who said
he was a Vietnam War veteran. "I
wasn't a hero. I don't support the
troops because the troops are the
ones killing people."
"When I came back from
being in the jungle, I was
mixed up. But I never
gave up on America, and I
never will. Don't feel guilty
for what you've done.
Get some education and
change things."
Robert Tyler
Vietnam War veteran

He wasn't alone. Some people
in the audience argued accus-
ingly with the veterans that the
Iraq war is pointless and needs to
end immediately.
Robert Tyler, a 61-year-old
Vietnam War veteran, stood up,
he said, to try and stop the stone-
throwing.
"When I came back from being
in the jungle, I was mixed up," he
said. "But I never gave up on
America, and I never will. Don't
feel guilty for what you've done.
Get some education and change
things."

Criticism prompts changes for Student Honor Court


* CHANCELLOR HOPES TO AN-
SWER FACULTY COMPLAINTS.

By KATIE SANDERS

ksanders@alligator.org

Luis Delgado may not have
been a Boy Scout, but he said he
intends to leave his "campsite,"
or UF's Student Honor Court,
better than how he found it.
The honor court chancellor
and UF law student is revamping
the court's traditional practices to
make sure it's not shut down by
the UF administration.
At a meeting Wednesday
night at the Levin College of
Law, Delgado stressed the need
to boost awareness of the court,
which he thinks will increase its
use.
Delgado, appointed by
Student Body President Ryan
Moseley early this semester, has
also instituted bimonthly meet-
ings this spring.
At the meetings, law students
give presentations to court mem-
bers so they can brush up on
proper legal procedure.
In November, the court faced


criticism from UF's Faculty
Senate for its small caseload and
for not having adequate faculty


representation, according to the
Senate.
Faculty Senate passed a


resolution asking Patricia Telles-
Irvin, UF's vice president for
student affairs, to streamline the

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

City commissioners receive feedback


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

City commissioners listened to both
gratitude and complaints from citizens
of northwest Gainesville's District 2
Thursday night at the second of four dis-
trict commission meetings.
Most citizens who spoke said they live
in the Stephen Foster neighborhood, close
to sites where commissioners almost
chose to build an industrial garage and
now propose to build Project GRACE, a
one-stop homeless shelter.
While some thanked the district's
commissioner, Ed Braddy, for his work
to stop the garage, others argued against
the shelter.
"I walk my children to school every
morning, and we already see homeless
parading up and down," said James C.


Miller Sr.
Braddy said he has always opposed
the shelter.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan advised
those concerned about the shelter to at-
tend a hearing on April 3 where citizens
will be able to speak
out for or against the
shelter.
q. 1 Citizens also
'a brought up problems
with inadequate roads,
neighborhood sexual
predators and a lack.
Hanrahan of warniiig when is-
sues important to
their neighborhoods are discussed at city
meetings.
Anita Krueger, who thanked Braddy
for his help in decreasing noise com-
plaints in her Springhill neighborhood,
said she was disappointed by the turn-


out.
About 30 people attended, about 70
less than showed up for east Gainesville's
District 1 meeting Feb. 1.
"People complain, but then we have
these meetings and people don't show
up," Krueger said.
Braddy said he thought the low at-
tendance was a result of a change in the
meeting's scheduled time from 6 p.m. to
7 p.m.
Still, commissioners said they were
pleased to hear from those who spoke
up at the meeting and repeatedly encour-
aged the audience to continue voicing
concerns.
"I'm sort of nostalgic for the Norman
Rockwell painting where every guy
stands up and says his piece," Braddy
said.
"And you guys have done that to-
night. That's pretty awesome."


UF alumnae earn top college film honors


By RACHEL ARROYO
Alligator Writer

Recent UF alumnae Jolene Pinder and Sarah Zaman were
awarded the top Emmy for their documentary, entitled
"Bismillah: In the Name of Allah," at the 29th annual College
Television Awards held in Los Angeles last week.
The film documents the story of Farheen Hakeem, the
leader of a Muslim Girl Scouts troop who became the first
Muslim woman to run for political office in Minnesota,
Zaman said.
Through the film, Pinder and Zaman sought to empower
women with the idea that they can inspire change and chal-
lenge the stereotypes placed on Muslims in the U.S.
"In mainstream America, Muslims are portrayed in a
rather one-dimensional light," Pinder said. "You can be both
an American and a Muslim."
On a budget of $5,500 awarded by the UF Documentary
Institute, Pinder and Zaman made multiple trips to


Minnesota to film Hakeem at work.
The two began research for their project in 2006, screened
the film at UF last May and are still fine-tuning it for poten-
tial public broadcast, Pinder said.
"In mainstream America, Muslims are portrayed
in a rather one-dimensional light. You can be both
an American and a Muslim."
Jolene Pinder
UF alumna and documentary filmaker

However, Finder and Zaman didn't expect the level of
success, the documentary has attained. The two were thrilled
to find themselves walking a red carpet at the awards cer-
emony.
"Being a Muslim, it means a lot that what we thought
was so important and inspiring to us was so important and
inspiring to other people," Zaman said.


Lawsuit to


be tested.
UF's claim that a student group's
online-voting lawsuit was illegitimate
will be investigated at a hearing next
month.
Alachua County Circuit Judge
Frederick Smith will hold .the hearing
April 28 to decide if the suit filed against
UF by a student group supporting on-
line voting in Student Government elec-
tions is valid.
The group, Students for Online
Voting, sued UF on Feb. 22 after the UF
Supreme Court ruled
GovernmStudent that an online-voting
amendment would
be unconstitutional.
UF responded to the suit March 14,
stating that the group filed in the wrong
court, making the claims illegitimate.
The group, known as SOLVe, filed a
response Thursday refuting UF's claim,
but Smith has the final say. If SOLVe's
claims are deemed valid, the suit will
proceed.
Sam Miorelli, SOLVe's executive di-
rector, said postponing addressing the
issues until after the hearing is disap-
pointing.
"But it's just showing the court is
being cautious, and that's obviously a
good thing," Miorelli said.
Janine Sikes, UF's spokeswoman,
said she could not comment because the
case is ongoing.

process in which the university
resolves student academic-dis-
honesty cases.
"If I were to sit back and do
nothing, then I would be guilty
of doing nothing, and that's not
my style," Delgado said.
Chris Loschiavo, director of
Student Judicial Affairs, said
Delgado is one of the court's
most motivated chancellors in
a branch that historically hasn't
been that active.
The student-run, SG-funded
court is one of two case-hearing
bodies for students charged with
academic dishonesty.
The other option is the Student
Conduct Committee, which con-
sists of students and faculty.
The honor court only consists
of students, and faculty serve as
witnesses only.
Delgado said he's also using
attendance of the meetings as
a gauge to see which members
are truly committed versus those
who use the court as a resume-
booster.
"We're at such a point that if
don't we participate or take part,
we're going to be in trouble," he
said.

ESPN reporter speaks at UF


* UF ALUMNA ERIN ANDREWS
DISCUSSES CAREER.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

In her four years as a sideline
reporter for ESPN, Erin Andrews
has been outrun by football
coaches, knocked over by a defen-
sive lineman and forced to fight
rumors that she was dating West
Virginia University's quarterback,
Pat White.
"If you want to be in sports,
you can't have thin skin as a
woman," Andrews said. in a
speech Wednesday night at
UF's College of Journalism and
Communications. "I'm walking
into a guy's world I know
that."
Andrews graduated from UF
in 2000 with a telecommunication
degree.
Growing up, she said she
watched sports with her father,
an investigative journalist for an
NBC affiliate.
"I always knew I wanted to do
sports," Andrews said. "I was a
huge fan of teams he liked."
As a UF Dazzler in college,
she said she was, more concerned
about the Gators winning than her
academic work.
"I had a blast here," she said.
"You can tell from the scars
on my legs Florida-Georgia


games."
After graduating, Andrews
was unemployed until the NBC
affiliate her father worked for
asked her to cover a Tampa Bay
Buccaneers football game for
little pay.
She began freelancing, work-
ing paycheck-to-paycheck until
she landed a position covering the
Tampa Bay Lighting hockey team,
which she deemed the best year of
her life.
"If you want to be in sports,
you can't have thin skin as
a woman."
Erin Andrews
ESPN sideline reporter


Andrews gradually moved her
way up, covering Atlanta Braves
games with Turner Broadcasting
System and, finally, snagging her.
ESPN position in 2004.
Although she loves sports,
Andrews said her job isn't all fun
and games.
Each interview requires days of
studying, she said.
"I've never played, I've never
coached and that's what moti-
vates me," Andrews said. "I don't
just read one article on Tim Tebow
going to the Philippines I read
25 of them."
Still, after years of experience,
Andrews said she hasn't learned
it all.


"I'm still looking for ways to
perfect my technique," she said.
In response to an audience
member's question about how it
feels to be the subject of a YouTube
video montage glorifying her "be-
ing hot," Andrews said, "I just
don't care. Boys are gross."
She added with a laugh that
attitudes about her appearance
motivate her to stay in shape. Still,
she said she's never felt sexually
exploited.
"If they're going to talk about
that, they're going to talk about
that," Andrews said of her looks.
John Wright, dean of the
College of Journalism and
Communications, said in an
interview after the speech that
he's continually impressed with
Andrews' commitment to helping
students.
Andrews also came to speak
to students last year, despite her
busy schedule, Wright said.
Thursday's speech marked the
first day of Andrews' vacation
- the first one she's taken in four
years, Andrews said.
Brittany Larson, a telecom-

Editorial
Trekking back to campus after a whole week of doing
absolutely nothing school-related wasn't easy for any of
us. Realizing that we only have less than half of the semes-
ter left to pull those grades up and actually watch those
online lectures? Even harder.
But, like someone stuck in the CIRCA lab listening to a
series of monotone lectures all day, we welcome any dis-
traction right about now and we bet you need one too.
So it's time to stop thinking about where you're going to
get all those notes you missed and enjoy this week's edi-
tion of


Darts & Laurels
Just when the whole Haridopolos hoopla settled down,
a new accusation of political favoritism sprung up in its
place but this time it has a more familiar, orange-hued
face. A there-really-is-no-explanation-necessary DART
goes to none other than Gov. Charlie Crist. Though he
tried to defend his decision to give a nearly $100,000 state
job to the wife of his general counsel, we're not buying the
"it's good to have new blood" line that Charlie sold to the
statemedia outlets.
As the new chairwoman of the Public Employees
Relations Commission, Sara Gonzalez will be the first non-
attorney to head the office and holds a master's degree
from wait for it the UF College of Medicine. Right,
because that makes her perfect for the job.
In other grimy governor news, we've got to throw
out a we-thought-this-was-public-service-not-the-Jerry-
Springer-show DART to the New York and New Jersey
governors embroiled in the sleazy sex scandals that have
dominated the top news stories this week. It kicked off over
Spring Break with New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's prostitu-
tion scandal, continued when his replacement admitted to
numerous extramarital affairs and ended with a revelation
about former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey's alleged
threesome during his divorce proceedings. We kind of ex-
pect stuff like this. on Entertainment Tonight, but not from
gubernatorial politicians.
In keeping with disappointments, we offer a how-
about-trying-a-little-harder DART to the Gators basket-
ball team, which missed the NCAA Tournament for the
first time since 1999. Granted the team is young, 6ut its
less-than-inspired performance against the University of
Alabama in a must-win game in the first round of the SEC
Tournament was a pathetic end to a historical two-year
run of UF basketball. And at least about 7,000 people are
on the same page as us only a little more than 5,000
showed up for the team's National Invitation Tournament
game Wednesday, the same day UF's football team merci-
fully started spring practice.
Finally, we offer a thank-you-for-not-making-us-an-
other-spectacle-in-the-national-spotlight LAUREL to the
Florida Democratic Party for deciding Monday that it will
not hold a second primary. It was bad enough that state,
legislators voted to move ahead of schedule and put votes
on the line just to be at the start of the primaries, but call-
ing voters back to the polls would have only made more
of a mess.
After individually discussing the revote idea with state
and local leaders and elections experts, they came'to their
senses and realized that a mail-in ballot election or any
new primary election would not be in the best interest of
the state.
Is it too much to ask that we don't screw this up again
come November?

Small steps aid transition to real world


My uncle recently decided to return to school and
asked me what it would take for him to be a col-
lege student. I replied by saying that, for starters,
he'll need to watch "Scrubs" reruns and consider cereal an
anytime-of-the-day food.
In addition, a beer pong table and a laptop would both be
smart purchases. And finally, he'll have to start going to bed
about the time he usually wakes up.
Reflecting on this, I've come to the conclusion that being a
college student is not at all like being an adult.
When I graduated high school I was so excited to move
into what I considered the "real world." However, now that
I know what this lifestyle consists. of, I've realized that the
world we're living in is about as close to reality as the MTV
show of the same name.
But is it really a problem to be living in our own version
of the real world? I don't believe so. It canalmost be looked
at as a stepping stone between the bubble that is high school
and the reality that is the work place.
. Perhaps besides an education, college provides us with
the transitional period we need to adjust to adult living.
We're given just the right amount of responsibility with just
the right amount of freedom, and we see what comes of it.
And at some time within these four years, we have to
make the decision to adapt our lifestyle and acclimate to
our future environment. But for many of my peers and me,
we are less than two months from graduation, and it seems
we've not yet willfully adjusted. I think of myself as a plain-
pasta-eating, constant-pajama-wearing, Facebook-browsing,
weekday-poolside-laying, late-night-caffeine-relying child.
I feel more like a refined version of my 10-year-old brother
than I feel like an adult.
I'm not speaking for everyone because surely there are
a few college students who have started getting dressed
on a daily basis. Maybe these people even hold steady jobs.
Maybe they cook dinner at night. If so, good for them. And
perhaps the rest of us should follow in the footsteps of their


dress shoes.
Frankly, it's not that college stu-
dents are immature. Any one of us
could pass as an adult if we were
debating politics or discussing our
favorite authors. It's just that we are
Carly Hallam holding onto our bowl of Ramen
lettess@alligator.org noodles a little too tight.
It's difficult moving from our
version of the real world to the one
our parents reside in. We are all of a sudden being asked to
job search and make life-changing decisions.
And we're having trouble balancing our resumes and
briefcases in one hand when we've got season three of
"Family Guy" and a Campus Talk Magazine in the other.
I've been told that life should come in stages, and it's a
good idea to take everything one step at a time. Otherwise,
you'll end up moving too quickly and realize you let your
youth pass you by. I agree with baby stepping toward be-
coming an adult. I don't think we need to be in any rush.
But, some things about our lifestyles do need to be modi-
fied before transitioning to the real world. So what do college
and adulthood inbetweens do in the next few months to
make the future less of a shock?
We wean ourselves off of the midnight bowl of Frosted
Mini-Wheats, we sign off AOL Instant Messenger, and we re-
sist the urge to buy any more T-shirts with double entendres.
I know, it sounds as hard as, oh, never mind.
Seriously though, if my uncle can find a way to adjust to
our surroundings, then we can find a way to adjust to his.
There's nothing that we college 'tweens can't do if we put
our minds to it. Most importantly, we'll probably need to
choose jobs where afternoon naps are considered acceptable,
because changing that routine would just be asking for too
much, too fast.

Letters to the Editor
Police cannot be everywhere on campus
I think people have an unrealistic view of
what police can accomplish during a shoot-
ing. The police are very good at responding to
crimes quickly and finding criminal suspects.
Neither of those matter in an open, public
shooting. The crime is over in minutes, and
the suspect rarely escapes, often because he
or she has no desire to. Unless we're willing
to station armed police in every classroom or
search everybody coming onto campus, we
need to accept that there isn't much we can
do to stop a gunman. I understand the desire
for a gun-free campus. Just remember that the
most recent shootings have occurred in gun-
free zones.

Concealed carry allows instant response
Allowing students to carry concealed weap-
ons on campus is not the same as admitting that
police officers aren't doing their jobs. Police of-
ficers just can't be everywhere, and that is one
problem hiring more police officers will never
fix. Police officer will never be around during
a school shooting because a shooter won't pull
out a gun if a police officer is in the area.
Even if it only takes a minute for police to
respond to a shooting, a person with a gun can
do a lot of damage in that minute. However, if
there happens to be a student with a concealed
weapon near by, they can respond almost
instantly. Letting people carry weapons is not
criticism of our police system, it is a practical


move that can save lives.

Fair-weather fans a disgrace to Gators
The fans of The Gator Nation should
be ashamed of themselves. The turnout for
Wednesday night's game against San Diego
State University was shameful. It was the most
fair-weather fan episode I have ever seen. This
basketball team does not deserve that.
They did not earn a berth in the NCAA
Tournament, but they are still a 20-win team
composed of mostly freshman and sopho-
mores not even one year removed from the

national championship.
The National Invitation Tournament is a
prominent postseason tournament.
I was also disappointed in the outcome
of the season. However, bailing on the team
when support is most needed is not in the
blueprint. I believe that maiy Gators fans
need to reevaluate their artificial loyalty to the
program.
In all my years of attending Gators
events, this was the most disgraceful turnout.
However, I would like to commend the, true
orange-and-blue faithful that were in atten-
dance Wednesday night for showing their
support whether we're winning or losing.
And by the way, they won the game 73-49.

Fair hosts companies looking for summer workers


By STEPHANIE ROSENBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer

While UF students are in the midst of spring semester,
UF's Career Resource Center focused on the next season
with the Summer Job Fair Thursday on the Reitz Union
Colonnade.
The fair featured representatives from 34 companies of-
fering summer jobs, including Busch Gardens Tampa Bay,
Gainesville Health & Fitness Center, CareerBuilder.com
and various summer camps from across the country, said
Ja'Net Glover, CRC assistant director for career events.
Glover said representatives at the event offered part-
time and full-time jobs.
"I think the casual atmosphere is great to
recruit counselors for the camp, but it would be
great if it weren't so windy."
Denni Elsen
Pine Forest Camp representative


"We're really happy that the campus lets us come here
and get to know the students," said Cartson Ko, a recruit-
er from CareerBuilder.com.
Ko's table featured T-shirts, plastic cups and a booth
where students could take an aptitude test.
"We're a grassroots kind of company," Ko said. "We try
and talk to students and have this whole thing rolled out
as a career."
Denni Eisen, a representative from Pine Forest Camp
said she was happy with the turnout, especially since
some of her former counselors, who were recruited from
UF, came out to help.
"I think the casual atmosphere is great to recruit coun-
selors for the camp, but it would be great if it weren't so
windy," Eisen said with a laugh.

Changes proposed for SW Rec


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Plans to give UF's Southwest Recreation Center
a $16 million makeover have gotten a couple nods
so far, but they still need approval from two state
institutions.
Renovations to SWRC and other campus
spots could start in fall 2009 as long as the Florida
Legislature and the Board of Governors, which
oversees Florida's 11 public universities, approve
UF's recommendations for distribution of the Capital
Improvement Trust Fund. The board will meet
Thursday, and the Legislature is currently in session.
The ,$23 million fund is collected through student
tuition fees and released to universities every three
to four years, said Dave Kratzer, associate vice presi-
dent for UF student affairs.
David Bowles, director of recreational sports, said


SWRC's cardiovascular rooms now 5,600 square
feet would be expanded by 14,350 square feet to
the comer of Hull Road and Bledsoe Drive.
"You've got to do it right," Bowles said.
He said he hopes to have the renovations com-
pleted by spring 2011, but ongoing construction
wouldn't disrupt the center much,
and it would remain open.

Kratzer plan to add an indoor track and
expand the lobby and area for

* ANIMAL SCIENCE
CLASS HOST CONTEST.

A UF animal science
class will hold its third an-
nual cattle-roping competi-
tion, dubbed "Ropin' in the
Swamp," on Saturday.
The event will take place
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at UF's
Horse Teaching Unit's live-
stock pavilion.
Although registration for
the cattle-roping competition
is closed, admission is free.
This year, students in
UF's horse enterprise man-
agement class, the group
sponsoring the event, have
added family activities, in-
cluding an Easter egg hunt
and a barbecue lunch.
Lori Warren, an assistant


professor who teaches the
class, said 36 people would
participate in the cattle-rop-
ing competition, many of
them professionals.
They will work in teams
to chase after a steer and
rope it as quickly as possible

Restructuring changes

SENATE, from page 1

The restructuring changes
the way each college's money
is managed, including CLAS,
which is currently without a
dean.
Carol Murphy, a French pro-
fessor, asked Machen how UF
could attract an adequate CLAS
dean in light of such a major
reorganization.
Peter Coclanis, the
University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill associate provost
who was being considered for
the position, dropped out of
the search Wednesday, citing
Machen's recently announced
changes as part of his reason-
ing.


Machen responded that he
thinks UF's budget crisis, which
Coclanis also said was a reason
for his withdrawal, is a larger
concern than administrative
changes.
"I don't believe that's
the issue that's causing
the search to be in some
jeopardy."
Bernie Machen
UF president

"I don't' believe that's the
issue that's causing the search
to be in some jeopardy," he
said of the restructuring. "It's
the inability of us to tell dean
candidates what their resource
base is going to be."

Machen: University still ahead in Florida Tomorrow campaign projections


TOMORROW, from page 1

In December 2007, UF received $47 mil-
lion in gifts, Robell said.
However, he said donors expressed
concern about the economy in January and
February, which could decrease their abil-
ity to give'to the campaign.
He said this is new territory for UF,
which has never conducted a capital cam-
paign during an economic downturn.


The most similar situation was during
UF's first capital campaign in the 1980s
when the stock market crashed for a day,
he said.
But it wasn't an extended downturn,
and UF's campaign was able to recover.
In contrast, Robell said the market has
gone down about 10 to 15 percent in the
last year.
He said UF had to adjust its strategy to
target donors who aren't being hit as hard
by the economic problems.


If the economy worsens, he said all UF
can do is "work harder and smarter."'
"You just do the best you can do," he
said.
Marketing Before a Faculty Senate
Marketing meeting Thursday, UF
President Bernie Machen
said economic troubles don't affect the do-
nors he usually talks to because they tend
to be older people with more established
wealth.
Machen said younger donors are prob-


ably reluctant because they're trying to
make their own way financially.
But he said UF is still ahead of its fund-
raising projections, so not all hope is lost.
Robell said some donors have also ex-
pressed concern about UF's budget crisis,
but he said UF doesn't use its funding
troubles to encourage more donations.
"It's not the most attractive fundraising
strategy," he said. "You don't want to say,
'Give us money because we're in trouble
budget-wise.'"

"It was horrible, because see-
ing Florida's secondary go from
almost perfect to worse was hard
for me to watch," the UF corner-
back said. "I wanted to come to
this program to help build a de-
fensive scheme that gets it back
up."
Well, now he has his chance.
Jenkins is one of seven early
enrollees who started practice
Wednesday, but right now, he's
just another freshman.
While Jenkins, one of four
secondary prospects signed,

Urban Meyer for not even miss-
ing a class yet, he has some extra

UF hosts rematch in NIT


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
dklein@alligator.org

As the smoke settles and the Gators try to
move on, UF coach Billy Donovan believes
his team is right where it belongs.
"There's a reason we weren't ranked
when the season began," Donovan said.
After throttling San Diego State 73-49 in
the opening round of the National Invitation
Tournament, Donovan seemed pleased with
his team's performance and has begun to
shift his focus to the future.
Donovan said the Gators can grow from
the experience and have already shown signs
of humility.
The main concern, however, is if the
change will last.
"I don't know how much we'll learn from
last night," Donovan said. "Are they going
to come out complacent and think they have
it all figured out? That would be the wrong
experience to take from what happened in
that game."
From the tip-off, it was dear UF was play-


ing with a purpose.
The Gators buckled down on the defen-
sive end and played with an intensity at odds
with their regular-season mantra.
The team even warmed up with a defen-
sive drill, something orchestrated by junior
Walter Hodge, the lone upperclassman, who
has taken the reins for this
young team.
"Walter has done a
remarkable job," Donovan
said. "But when you're a
? i-< lone soldier and you're
dealing with seven or
eight guys by yourself, I
Donovanthink I put more responsi-
Donovan abilityy on myself."
* Whether or not Hodge's influence has ar-
rived a little too late is hard to say.
Yet, after the dominating win, the Gators
are still playing basketball.
"I knew what I was getting into with this
team," Donovan said. "I don't know if it's
exceeded my expectations or not, but when

You could say that Avery Barnes is on
an endless pursuit of perfection.
The left fielder hit .293, scored 40 runs
and drove in 27 more as a sophomore in
2007.
Despite those solid numbers, Barnes
spent the summer improving his swing-
ing mechanics and conditioning.
The Santa Fe High product realized
that he needed to shorten his swing, and
the UF coaching staff spent the off-sea-
son helping him work on it.
The work has paid immediate divi-
dends for the Gators.
Barnes leads the Gators with a .424
batting average and 23 runs scored.
Mississippi (14-6, 2-1 Southeastern


Conference) will have to contain Barnes
if it hopes to come. away with a victory
against the Gators (15-3, 3-0 SEC) in the
opener of their three-game series Friday
night at 7:30.
Barnes credits UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan
and his staff for the
improvements in his
Baseball numbers.
"I give them all the
credit," he said. "We worked on my
game a lot, and I feel blessed. Hopefully,
we can keep it going and I can continue
to improve."
Barnes' skill set is a perfect match for
O'Sullivan's coaching style.
The first-year coach likes to keep the
game up-tempo and the Gators have,

UF TENNIS

Gators put strong start to test after long layoff


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

The UF women's tennis team could not
have asked for a better start to its Southeastern
Conference season.
The Gators (10-1, 4-0 SEC) are coming off
road wins against No. 20 Tennessee and No. 6
Georgia that allowed them to gain sole posses-
sion of first place in the SEC East.


No. 4 UF will host Mississippi (4-10, 0-4
SEC) on Friday at 5 p.m. before heading to No.
59 Mississippi State (7-5, 0-4 SEC) on Sunday.
UF shared the regular-season conference
title with Georgia last season after falling 4-3
in Athens.
This time around, the Gators got the bet-
ter of the Bulldogs, winning 5-2, and put
themselves in a good position to win another
conference crown.
"I thought we were very mentally


tough," UF coach Roland
Thornqvist said of the
wins against Tennessee
V. and Georgia. "If we can
keep that up, that's going
to give us a chance every
time out."
UF hasn't played a
Thornqvist match in 12 days, some-
thing its coach thinks could
both help and hurt his team.


"I'm hoping that the break didn't make us
too rusty," Thornqvist said. "I do think that
we really needed this break both physically
as well as mentally because of the long season
that we have.
"If we had to take a step back short-term to
get two steps forward long-term, that's what
we needed to do right now."
The No. 18 UF men's tennis team will travel
to No. 5 Mississippi on Friday before hosting
No. 47 Mississippi State on Sunday.

UF (22-11) hosts Creighton (22-10) Friday
night at 9:30 and will be looking to keep its
bid for the school's first-ever NIT title alive.
The two teams have played twice, with the
Blue Jays taking both contests.
Most recently, they squared off in the
first round of the 2002 NCAA Tournament,
with Creighton winning 83-82 in a double-
overtime thriller.
The Blue Jays hail from the Missouri
Valley Conference, where they finished 10-
8 in their league.
Creighton's schedule is marked by losses
to Indiana State and Evansville. Donovan is
wary of Creighton's depth and talent.
The Blue Jays use a 10-man rotation,


with each player averaging between 12.7
and 25.3 minutes per game.
"I haven't paid much attention to them,
since we've been so involved in our own
conference," Donovan said. "But there's no
question (Creighton coach Dana Altman)
does a great job over there."
"It's not like I brought them to

been aggressive on the base
paths this season.
UF stole its 40th base of the
season in Tuesday's 6-1 win
against Florida State, exceeding
its 39 steals from a year ago.
"We're trying to make things
happen," Barnes said. "We
want to be aggressive. We're
trying to make things fun, and
it's been a lot of fun. We feel like
we're keeping other teams on
their heels and making it a little
tougher on them."


The Gators' offense hasn't
only been more fun for Barnes;
it has been more potent.
UF is averaging nearly
nine runs per game thus far,
compared to seven last season.
Though Gators fans no longer
get to watch Matt LaPorta's
home runs light up the sky,
Barnes feels what they're seeing
now is even more enjoyable.
"It's always fun for the fans
when you play a fast-paced
game," Barnes said. "It's more
fun for the players, too. We
like getting the opportunities to
score off hit-and-runs and get-
ting teams on their heels."


Barnes is also enjoying win-
ning. The win against Florida
State has the Gators feeling like
they can compete against any-
one. Though
no one will
admit it, the
embarrass-
ing 11-2 loss
to Brown ap-
pears to have
increased the
Barnes Gators' con-
centration.
"We are coming together as
a team," Barnes said. "We think
we can do some good things,
and we're not going to take a


team lightly. We're definitely
not going to overlook anyone;
we're bringing our top game
every night."
When asked if he was re-
ferring to the loss to Brown,
Barnes said the team was look-
ing forward from that loss and
no longer thinking about it. UF
is on a seven-game winning
streak since the loss. Whether
they're thinking about it or not,
it appears it had a lasting effect
on them.
"We're trying to build and
grow," Bames said. "We're get-
ting better as a team."

"No question they're a good team,"
Donovan said. "This will be another chal-

A lot has been made of Donovan's deci-
sion to kick the players out of the team's
practice facility. The players have spoken
about the move's positive effect and even
hinted it might have come too late.
Donovan said one misconception is that
the Gators are struggling.
"It's not like I brought them to

In fact, the team is practicing in the same
venue the O'Connell Center as the

UF hosts Longwood


* THE NO. 3 GATORS' BATS ARE
AIDED BY SOLID DEFENSE.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Base stealing, home-run hitting and
power pitching are all marks of an excit-
ing softball team.
The goal for No. 3 UF (32-2, 7-1
Southeastern Conference) this season
isn't to be exciting, however, and while
the team has displayed all those things
on the diamond, it's another dimension
of the game that has made it more com-
plete lately fielding.
Before the Iowa game, UF coach Tim
Walton pointed to mistake-free defense
as a big reason for the Gators' success in
Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Fayetteville, Ark.,
last week.
"We didn't make an error in five
games," he said. "To do that on the road
is huge."
The team will try to run its streak of
consecutive games without an error to
eight when it takes on Longwood this
Saturday for the first two games of a
three-game series.
The Gators haven't made an error
since the second game in the Mississippi
series and will rely on their much-im-
proved infield play to take some pres-
sure off of their stellar pitching staff.


Reigning SEC Freshman of the Week
Aja Paculba has consistently produced
on offense but only recently has come
into her own in the field.
Paculba, who has committed four er-
rors this season, hasn't logged an "E" in
the box score since a bad throw pulled
first baseman Ali Gardiner off the bag,
allowing the winning run to score in a
loss to Long Beach State on Feb. 27.
While the outfield clearly has the
least defensive responsibility on a soft-
ball field; it is equally apparent which
position is most challenged when the
other team is at the plate.
Sophomore Corrie Brooks plays third
base for the Gators, and her improve-
ment at the hot comer has led the way
for UF's improvement with the leather.
"It's pretty nerve-racking. It's pretty
intense over there," said Brooks when
asked about the difficulty of being mere
yards away from the batter. "When
you get a hot shot at you, you're on
instincts."
Brooks leads the team in errors made
(six) but has looked sharp lately playing
close to hitters in order to field bunts
and cut down the throw to first on the
short 60-foot bases.
For safety reasons not to mention
piece of mind she will be wearing a
mouth guard in the field this weekend,
as she has all season.
"I really don't want to lose my teeth,"
Brooks said.

Gators travel to Florida State for first outdoor meet


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Writer

The Gators are taking it outside.
The UF track and field team will
kick off the outdoor season by mak-
ing the short trip to Tallahassee on
Friday for the Snow Bird Invitational
hosted by Florida State.
The Gators head into the meet af-
ter a successful indoor campaign in


which both the men's and women's
teams finished eighth at the NCAA
Indoor Championships and 14 ath-
letes earned All-America honors.
"Based on the athletes we have
here, based on the weapons that we
went to war with last weekend, I
thought that we did a good job," UF
coach Mike Holloway said.
Holloway reiterated his goal of
making UF a complete track and


field program.
Because of its
history of success
in the sprints,
UF has long
been viewed as
simply a "sprint
program."
Holloway UF begins the
outdoor season
highly ranked on both sides.


The men head into the season
ranked No. 6 in the nation while the
women start out at No.10.
"We are a better outdoor team
than we are an indoor team on both
sides," Holloway said.
The meet marks the first of two
trips that the Gators will make to
Tallahassee in consecutive weeks.
Select members of the UF track
team will also be competing at the


Florida State relays next weekend.
Holloway said that his goal for
the outdoor season is a top-five fin-
ish for both the men and the women.
He is excited about the outdoor sea-
son and looks forward to chance
to get outside again.
"Running outside is a lot easier
than running inside," he .said. "We
train outside every day, and we just
want to get out in the sunshine."

Hidden Dynasty


Handball champs go unnoticed


By ANDREW FRIEDMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Billy Donovan and Zach Arem have a lot
more in common than one might think.
Both hail from New York.
Both got their starts coaching at
Kentucky.
And both helped rake in two national
championships for UF.
But for Arem's squad, the UF handball
team, no tickertape parade awaits them on
University Avenue, and no fans cheer them
as they walk off the plane.
As a club team that plays a little-known
sport with limited funding and minimal
recognition from the university commu-
nity, the squad's achievements have gone
largely unnoticed.
"Most people don't know about us, but
we're a reason why they call this place
'Titletown,'" said Alex Barbag, 21, who
joined the team in the fall.
Under the direction of Arem, a 23-year-
old senior and physical education major,
15 UF students competed against 44 other
schools from across the United States and a
few from Ireland at the National Collegiate
Handball Championships from Feb. 20-24
at Missouri State.
UF tallied enough points collectively,
1,125, by the tournament's end to earn the
Division II National Championship.
The Gators were led by seniors Barbag
and Mike Beach on' the men's side and
senior Jessica Kornick and sophomore
Stephanie Miller on the women's side.
"Football has won two, basketball won
two. Obviously we're not at that level, but


we've won two national championships
in three years," Arem said. "It's part of
the Gator tradition: winning champion-
ships, whether it's a club sport or a varsity
sport."
The team hoisted the championship tro-
phy through airports in Kansas City, Mo.,
Atlanta and.Jacksonville en route back to
Gainesville as other travelers congratulated
the team, sometimes not completely sure of
what they were congratulating the group
for.
"Everybody was like 'What's that for?'"
Miller said. "It's funny because we'd tell
them handball, and they'd say, 'Oh, that's
still being played?'"
Handball, like racquetball without the
racquet, was a popular sport at UF during
the 1960s and 1970s, said Frank Gr&en, a UF
employee and 1964 graduate of the school.
School policy then required men to take
physical education courses, one of which
was handball.
"Then it was a big sport," he said. "There
were a lot of people that played."
Green plays three-wall handball every
week with other Gainesville residents,
including former UF students and current
professors.
Now the sport is being resurrected at
UF thanks to Arem, who transferred from
Kentucky to UF to join his older brother,
A.J., who was a graduate student.
A.J. started the handball team in 2004,
recruiting players from handball and rac-
quetball classes he instructed at UF.
"He got a couple people and said,
'Wanna try this outside of class?' And they
started the club," Arem said.


In A.J.'s final year in 2006, the team won
its first national title at Texas A&M. The
younger Arem took over as coach for A.J.
the following year.
"My brother and I started all of this from
scratch," he said. "No one has ever played
before we introduced it to them. Now
people love it."
Some of his players estimate that he was
by far the youngest coach at the national
championship.
Said Barbag: "He organizes everything,
from the airline tickets to the car reserva-
tions to the entry fees to signing us up into
tournaments."
"Most people don't know about
us, but we're a reason why they
call this place 'Titletown.'"
Alex Barbag
UF senior handball player

Gainesville resident and team supporter
Tom Southern said he enjoys watching
Arem, who used his final year of college
eligibility last year, take time out of his
student life to serve as the team's head
coach and lead a group of former novices
to a title.
"Unlike, say, the basketball team, which
probably gets this catered steak dinner and
an air-conditioned bus ride to where they
are going," Southern said, "it's like a little
ragtag army going up there, and they won
the damn tournament!"
Miller said UF's camaraderie and cheer-
ing made the group the loudest team at the
tournament.
Barbag said the experience was like a
week's vacation.


But back at UF, it's back to classes and
three practices a week for the players.
"Going from a week of playing a sport
you love and being with really good friends
and not really having anything to worry
about to coming-back to classes is awful,"
Miller said.
Like her teammates, she had to explain
to professors why she would be missing
class the week of the championship.
"I told one of my teachers I'm going to
a handball tournament in Missouri, and he
said, 'If that's not true, that sounds like a
pretty good excuse to make up, so I'll take
your word for it.'"
Barbag said he isn't fazed by the lack
of recognition on campus for the national
championship.
He said if it weren't for Facebook pic-
tures, he'd have gotten half as many con-
gratulations.
"I don't care if people know that we
won the championship at all," he said.
"It's always fun with the team. We all just
go out there and try to have fun more than
anything else."
Southern said he was "on pins and
needles" waiting to hear the results of the
championship tournament.
"They don't get the glory, but it's been
really cool for me to see them play for the
heart of playing," he-said.
Arem organizes a handball tournament
that UF holds every fall, hosting players
from around Florida. His biggest concern
now, he said, is keeping handball from dy-
ing at UF after he graduates in May.
"The sport is dying," he said. "We need
people like my brother and myself and ev-
eryone here to continue on the sport, or it's
gonna die."
