CLAS dean search waits for faculty input


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Instead of making a recommendation to
the provost at its Friday meeting, the dean
search committee for UF's College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences decided to gather faculty
input for one more week.
After two of the four dean candidates


dropped out within a week of each other,
the search committee must decide whether
to move forward with its remaining finalists
or postpone the search.
The committee will make a final sugges-
tion at its next meeting on Thursday at 5
p.m. in Room 307 in Weil Hall.
In their meeting Friday, committee mem-
bers concluded it would be unfair to make a
decision before UF faculty submitted feed-


back. Earlier in the search, faculty members
were told they had until Wednesday to offer
comments on the search and the candidates.
U F During the meet-
AFministrati ing, UF Provost
AdminiJanie Fouke reiter-
ated her concern
that UF hasn't seen a broad enough field of
candidates. The remaining candidates, Paul
D'Anieri and Barbara Romzek, are both


CLAS associate deans at the University of
Kansas.
Committee members agreed that com-
piling an attractive resource package amid
budget cuts was a concern from the start,
and UF's recent administrative restruc-
turing and Fouke's resignation pose new
problems.

STATE

Like UF, FSU also defends hiring of state senator


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Amid controversy surrounding
UF's recent hire of a state senator
for a lecturer position, the online
publication Inside Higher Ed re-
ported Thursday that Florida State
University hired another senator in
September to oversee a reading cen-
ter she helped create and fund.
FSU hired Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-
Ormond Beach, chairwoman of the
Higher Education Appropriations
Committee, to supervise its out-
reach reading center at Daytona
Beach College.
As committee chairwoman,


Lynn holds considerable power
over FSU's budget. Senate records
also show she helped establish the
outreach center in 2006 and pushed
for $1 million of the center's fund-
ing in 2007.
Lynn could not be reached for
comment for this story.
In a November letter to FSU,
Lynn clarified that her FSU position
would not require any lobbying.
FSU Provost Larry Abele said
Lynn's role is to work with local
schools, not with the Legislature
or any state leaders. Abele said
FSU hired Lynn, a former Volusia
County schools official, because
she can use local contacts to help
the center.


"She's dearly qualified for the
position, and she's working hard,"
he said.
He said Lynn earns a biweekly
salary of $4,600
leave until the
S end of the legisla-
tive session.
That makes
her appointment
a 9-month posi-
tion, which is
Lynn about an $80,000
total salary, Abele said a normal
salary for her qualifications, he
said.
Lynn also earns about $30,000 as
a legislator and a $3,100-a-month


pension as a past Volusia County
educator.
Her FSU appointment brings
up some of the same questions
raised when UF hired Sen. Mike
Haridopolos in February.
Haridopolos, R-Indialantic, ex-
pected to become Senate president
in 2010, was hired for $75,000 to lec-
ture in UF's political science depart-
ment and coordinate'internships for
the Bob Graham Center for Public
Service.
Both senators were hired with-
out an open search and at a time
when state universities are scram-
bling to save their budgets from
hard-hitting cuts.
Abele said it's not unusual to


fill a time-limited position such as
Lynn's without conducting an open
search because there aren't that
many people interested in tempo-
rary jobs.
Ben Wilcox, executive director of
Common Cause Florida, a nonprofit
group that advocates open govern-
ment, said Lynn's FSU position is
legal as long as it's not a reward for
helping the center get started.
Wilcox said Lynn's involvement
on the Senate higher education
committee appears to be a conflict
of interest, which he said is just as
bad in the eyes of the public.
"When the public sees some-
thing like that, they lose confidence
in government," he said.


UF animal science class hosts cattle-roping competition


* THIRTY SIX COWBOYS COMPETE
FOR CASH, OTHER PRIZES.

By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

About 200 people watched 36 modern-day
cowboys in pursuit of cattle and prizes on
Saturday for UF's third-annual Ropin' in the
Swamp competition.
The event, hosted at UF's livestock pavilion,
is held once a year by a UF animal science class
to give students management experience.
Teams of two, donning cowboy hats and


plaid shirts, took turns working together
on horse to catch a steer. The "header" had
to rope it by the head, neck or horns, and a
heelerr" had to rope its legs.
Lori Warren, instructor for the class that
hosts the event, said she was impressed with
the turnout, which she said has grown since
the competition began three years ago. Most of
the competitors were professionals or had ex-
tensive cattle-roping experience, Warren said.
Bryan Rice, one of the two winners, said he
and his wife, Holley, have been cattle-roping
as a hobby for about 20 years.
He and Holley own a ranch in Fort McCoy,
a town south of Gainesville in Marion County.
Rice took home a cash prize, a bag full of gifts


"Everyone dreams of being a
winner. It's sure nice to be one."
Bryan Rice
Ropin' in the Swamp co-winner

and a belt buckle.
"Everyone dreams of being a winner," he
said. "It's sure nice to be one."
The other winner, 16-year-old Clint
Summers, left for a rodeo immediately after
the competition and could not be reached
for comment. Summers won tickets to UF's
Homecoming football game next season.
About 50 businesses donated nearly $3,700
in prize money. A portion of the $2,800 in


roper entry fees also went to the winners. The
rest will be used to improve next year's event
- another chance at glory for participants
who didn't place this year, including 65-year-
old Joe Lander.
Lander, who graduated from UF in 1970
with a mechanical engineering degree, said he
took up cattle-roping five years ago. He said
with a laugh that he was probably the oldest
participant in the competition.
"If the good Lord's willing, I'll be back here
next year," he said.

Student's art decries deforestation
By STEPHANIE ROSENBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students passing by Library West may find
Themselves stumped by a new public art dis-
play constructed from tree parts and installed
Sunday.
With the help of his classmates, UF land-
scape architecture senior Christopher Buccino
N- created the project, named "Homo Sapien V.
Destructis: Controlling Nature."
"It looks really sad like a tree
cemetery, like tombstones."
Evan Garfield
UF sociology junior


Sarah Hsu / Alligator
Students work on UF student Christopher Buccino's "Homo Sapien V. De-
structis: Controlling Nature" on the Plaza of the Americas on Sunday.


The design consists of -sections of lum-
ber that "slice" through two sycamore tree
stumps, which represent a destroyed forest.
Buccino said the lumber symbolizes hu-
man intervention and disruption of nature.
. The display will be in place until Earth Day
on April 22.
He said he was inspired after he read the
book "Last Child in the Woods" by Richard
Louv, who attributed today's health and social
issues to humans' disconnection with nature.
"This is something I just came up and ran
with," Buccino said. "I don't think something
of this scale has ever been done before."
Evan Garfield, a sociology junior, said he
was confused by the exhibit.
"It looks really sad like a tree cemetery,
like tombstones," Garfield said.
Buccino will hold a question-and-answer
session about his project on Tuesday from
noon to 1 p.m. on the Plaza of the Americas.

Bird-watching bikers make local stop


* FAMILY HAS TRAVELED MORE
THAN 10,000 MILES BY BICYCLE.

By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer

The distance between New York City
and San Francisco multiplied by four.
That is about how far one Canadian
family has traveled so far on a cross-
continental, bird-watching bike ride.
Malkolm Boothroyd, 16, and his
parents, Wendy Boothroyd and Ken
Madsen, hit their 10,000-mile mark
Thursday just outside of Gainesville on
a trip that began in the Yukon Territory,
located in northwest Canada, in June.
The family shared stories about
their travels down the West Coast,
across Texas, south through the
Florida Everglades and then back up
to Gainesville in a presentation Friday
night at the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship of Gainesville.
Malkolm took, two years of high
school in one year to be able to take the
past year off for what he called a "much
more fun use of time."
His parents' jobs were flexible
enough to allow them to join in his
plans to migrate across the continent
for what bird enthusiasts, or birders,
call a "big year," a year spent searching
for as many species of North American
birds as possible.
But their idea to do the trip atop steel
mountain bikes while educating people
along the way about fossil-fuel-free
travel makes their "big year" different
from that of other birders.
"We realized that talking about pro-
tecting the environment while you're
traveling around, spewing out fuel is a
huge contradiction," Madsen said.
In an interview before the presenta-
tion, Madsen said he wants people to
see how possible it is to use less fossil
fuel. The family travels about 12 mph or
about 50 miles per day.
Wendy Boothroyd said Florida was
one of their favorite states on the jour-

ney, and that they especially enjoyed
the Everglades because of its diverse
bird population.
Ann Wiley, a. birder who joined
the family on a ride around Fort
Lauderdale, came up to Gainesville to


watch the presentation.
"Their day, when you think about
it, is so simple and basic," Wiley said.
"All they need to do is keep pedaling.,
It comes down to basic human strength
and persistence."

Japanese


constitution


writer to speak

The 'only woman to help write Japan's
post-World War II constitution will visit UF
Monday night to talk about her career.
Beate Sirota Gordon grew up in Japan
and moved to Oakland, Calif., to attend
Mills College.
At 22, Gordon returned to Japan after
World War II to work in Gen. Douglas
MacArthur's office and help draft the
women's rights section of the constitution
in nine days, according to her memoir, "The
Only Woman in the Room."

"It is one of the most progressive
constitutions in the world."
Hikaru Nakano
East Asian cataloger of the Smathers
Library on Japan's constitution


Gordon, 83, will speak in Turlington
Hall L007 at 6 p.m. It is free and open to
the public.
"It is one of the most progressive consti-
tutions in the world," said Hikaru Nakano,
East Asian cataloger of the Smathers
Library.
Nakano said students will be able to
learn about Japanese women's achieve-
ments throughout history, the core concept
in feminism and the global context for equal
rights.
The program is being presented by
the Association for Asian Studies, the UF
Smathers Library and the Department of
Asian Studies.

Search & Rescue

UF should call off CLAS

dean search for now
And then there were two.
Paul D'Anieri and Barbara Romzek, both as-
sociate deans at the University of Kansas College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences, are the-last ones standing in
the search to find a new leader for UF's college of the same
name.
This is not entirely promising news. ,
As one of the most diverse colleges on campuses, it is
disappointing to see two candidates with such similar back-
grounds as the last remaining choices.
So, essentially, a national search for someone to take the
helm at one of the largest colleges at one of the largest uni-
versities ended up with two candidates who have at least
one identical qualification.
Maybe it's not for a lack of trying, but things are just not
looking up.
When Peter Coclanis, the associate provost at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, dropped out
Tuesday citing UF's recent administrative restructuring and
continuing budget crisis a projected $50 million shortfall
next year we didn't blame him.
A shake-up in the very way a university is governed will
have even long-standing faculty and administrators ques-
tioning the university's direction.
And that brings us to the very height of the latest dean
search problem Provost Janie Fouke's resignation.
It's fair to assume that amid her announcement the dean
search has now taken on a decidedly different atmosphere.
After UF President Bernie Machen announced that bud-
get operations once overseen by the Office of the Provost
and the University Controller's Office will be moved to
UF's new chief financial officer, the search committee may
now be looking for an entirely different kind of dean.
It has to be said that these recent changes are not small
changes to the university administrative culture.
Given that the provost's office will now focus primarily
on academic leadership responsibilities instead of budget
operations as in the past, it will take everyone some getting
used to. It
Since it's also unclear when an interim provost will be
named to replace Fouke, how can the committee expect to
hire anyone without being able to definitively tell the per-
son with whom he or she will be working?
That's like hiring an assistant manager without a marn*
ager it just doesn't make sense.
With these recent developments, we realize the best op-
tion for the search committee might not really be the easi-
est: It's time to postpone the search until we know who will
take lame-duck Provost Fouke's place.
Once that's out of the way, the only option would be to
expand the search once again, this time attempting to at-
tract more diverse candidates who are up for a different
type of challenge.
While we realize that no one person can come in and mi-
raculously fix all the college's problems, it is better to take
the time to find the right person for the job.
To go on searching when so much has changed since
the start of the committee's hunt would be a waste of the
committee's time and energy.
It doesn't seem fair to anyone involved.
Bringing someone new on board when such a leadership
change is taking place in-higher positions would be like
setting him or her up to fail, or at the very least make for a
less-than-smooth transition.
And the last thing CLAS needs is another set of failures.

A MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL RELATIONSHIP.


Column

Number of deaths is the real offense


he war in Iraq is completely f---ing absurd. Four
short of 4,000 Americans have died f---ing hor-
rible. This war is f---ing useless.
It's the Alligator's policy to bleep out what some might
consider to be offensive words, but the real disturbing part
of what I just said has to do with a different "f"-bomb.
Four thousand: 100 times 40,400 times 10, four things oc-
curring 1,000 times. That's probably more students than were
in your entire high school.
If you took all the English majors and the finance majors
and the mechanical engineering students at UF, you'd still be
a few hundred short.
If they dedicated one minute to the memory of every
soldier, it would take 66.6 hours more than 2 1/2 days.
Four thousand dead in five years, and billions and billions
of dollars spent.
Five-thousand dollars-a second a second. $5,000 ...
another $5,000 ... and another. Stop. Put it toward domestic
projects. Save the children.
Heck, give it to someone who doesn't even deserve it. Put
it in your pocket. It's yours.
I used to think I was "anti-war." But then I realized that
was about as common sense a declaration as being anti-poi-
son, anti-cancer or anti-getting-kicked-in-the-face.
No argument need apply. Simply put: "Duh."
Wait. There could be a justifiable reason for fighting: free-
dom, democracy, justice?
But a country's aggression can't claim charity or self-de-
fense. Still, "winning" in Iraq is a logistical impossibility.
We're a police force, and there's nothing for us to win ex-
cept a couple hundred thousand plane tickets home.
Iraq is not a war of land it's a land of war. And
Americans not killed in action still feel the effects. At least
29,320 troops have been wounded as of March 1.
I found this statistic five links deep in the Department
of Defense Web site, from "Press" to "Publications" and


finally under the innocuous title of
"Personnel Statistics." More than
3,000 have suffered traumatic brain
injuries.
In. January, Fox News reported
O as many as 121 active-duty soldiers
Vincent Massaro in the Army committed suicide in
2007, about 35 while still in Iraq.
letters@alligator.org The internal Army report with this
number also revealed an increase in
the number of attempted suicides and self-injuries some
2,100 in 2007 compared to less than 1,500 the previous year
and about 350 in 2002.
Five years.
Kindergarten students have never lived in a world where
their country wasn't at war in the Middle East. Defense
Department estimates put Iraqi civilian deaths anywhere
from some 100,000 to more than 1 million since 2003.
Last week in Washington, D.C., hundreds of veterans
gathered before Congress to describe the atrocities they
committed and witnessed in Iraq as part of an event called
Winter Soldier. Why wasn't the rest of Washington listening?
Or why aren't we at least yelling from the top of our lungs?
Why was I comfortable, back at home for break and play-
ing Xbox a pixilated "hero" trying to kill some 8-year-old
gamers via the Internet? And what does it say that I got
bored after a half hour?
Five years ago, El Presidente put pen to paper and gave
us death and destruction. In the meantime, we've had dis-
traction: economy, election, et cetera. But wrhy wasn't the
president signing a bill to bring the troops home?
Sure, there are things I can do and have done protest,
petition, vote but it doesn't feel sufficient. Change seems
to exist only in my imagination.

Letters to the Editor
Cattle-roping contest was public cruelty
After hearing about Saturday's cattle-rop-
ing contest, which was sponsored by a UF
class, I was overcome with shame because as
a UF student I am part of an organization that
condones animal cruelty.
The animals that are unfortunate enough
to be subjected to this barbaric form of enter-
tainment have been shown to experience high
levels of stress and anxiety.
Essentially, they are terrified.
When the cattle are successfully roped,
they more often than not sustain extremely
painful injuries.
How is it that the torture of innocent ani-
mals is an event that attracts loads of specta-
tors, including families with small children?
Is this form of violence something that parents


really want to expose their children to?
This public display of cruelty is the antith-
esis of what a family event should be.
I sincerely hope that all of the individuals
who have been involved with this event in the
past take a hard look at the pain and suffering
that they have caused and elect to make more
humane choices in the future.

Petition asks for affordable birth control
These past few months, I have noticed
many of my friends recalculating their month-
ly budgets because of the new costs incurred
by their. birth control.


Many survive from one paycheck to the
next, and it's unfortunate that they have to
choose between paying for their health and
paying for their utilities. So why has this be-
come an issue recently?
Under the Deficit Reduction Act of 2006,
Congress inadvertently changed a rule and
made it harder for universities and some fam-
ily planning providers to offer their patients
affordable birth control.
Now, hundreds of thousands of women,
who once only had to pay $5 to $10 for their
birth control, must now spend $40 to $50 on a
month's supply, making it much more difficult
to afford.
This affordable birth control crisis is a
simple problem to fix it would cost taxpay-
ers nothing and can be done immediately.


Congress needs to take action and pass the
Prevention Through Affordable Access Act.
Birth control is basic health care, and if
Congress is serious about reducing the rate
of unintended pregnancies, they need to fix
this mess.
Voices for Planned Parenthood is organiz-
ing students to speak out on the affordable
birth control crisis and encouraging Congress
to take action.
They'll be collecting petitions to send to the
Florida Congressional Delegation, so I urge
students to show support for affordable birth
control by signing one. They will be tabling
on the Reitz Union Colonnade Wednesday
and on Turlington Plaza Thursday.

The latest candidate to withdraw
from the search, Peter Coclanis, as-

of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
dropped out after UF transferred
academic budget operations from the
Office of the Provost to Matt Fajack,
UF's chief financial
officer.
With Fouke set
to resign June 30,
committee mem-
bers expressed
concern that a
prospective dean
would want to
Fouke negotiate with
Fouke's replacement because that's
with whom they'd be working.
However, it's unclear when an
interim or permanent provost will
be named. "The world is very differ-
ent now from when you began your
search," Fouke told the committee.
Pramod Khargonekar, chairman
of the search committee and dean
of the College of Engineering, said
although the situation has changed,
the committee's goal remains the
same: to bring an "outstanding"'
dean to the CLAS.
"Everything is on the table,"
Khargonekar said after the meeting.
"(Committee members) just want to
do their work now."

He said before transferring to UF,
Brock Benton worked with monkeys at
the Animal Science Building at Shands at
UF as an SFCC student.
"He looks like he's real mean and fe-
rocious, but he was just a real teddy bear
on the inside," Ralph Benton said.
Growing up in Gainesville, Brock
Benton was "consumed" with sports,
playing both football and basketball as a
student at Buchholz High School.
He tore his ACL three times in his
right knee, leading him to pursue a UF
degree instead of a career in sports, his
father said.
But that goal was cut short Thursday,
leaving family and friends with just
memories, including Snoop, his 7-year-
old American Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
"He knows he's gone," Ralph Benton
said of Snoop. "He always slept with my
son, and lately he's been sleeping at the
edge of my bed."
He said the funeral will be held today
at 2 p.m. at the Williams-Thomas Funeral
Home.

Calathes earns triple-double in rout

By DANNY KLEIN

The locker room said it all. o.
In stark contrast to the grim and downtrodden scenes
of late, UF was in party mode after Friday's 82-54 thrash-
ing of Creighton in the second round of the National o
Invitation Tournament.

After crushing their second consecutive opponent, the

"I would rather be who we are today than playing in
the NCAA Tournament as who we were a week ago,"
guard Jai Lucas said.
Lucas is all smiles as he unlaces his sneakers. Forward '
Chandler Parsons is yelling at Adam Allen to put his shirt
back on, and walk-on Hudson Fricke, who saw action in
the final minutes, is racing to find some clothes. .
In the front of the locker room, Alex

a light argument.
"Hey Tyus," Speights said. "Do you
Men's think this was the best game of the sea-

"Maybe," Tyus responds. "What
about Vanderbilt though?" -
"No, in that game, we made a lot of lucky shots,"
Speights said. "This was it."
Tyus agrees, and on this night, it's hard to argue.
The Gators dominated from start to finish, opening
with an 8-0 spurt, which was one of three key runs in the
first half.
Creighton pulled within 3 at 15-12, but the Gators out-
scored the Bluejays 24-7 for the rest of the half. UF led by
20 at the break and would lead by as many as 33 late in the
second half.
The game was never dose. In the first half, Creighton
shot just 20 percent from beyond the arc and 34.8 percent
from the field. .

UF takes two


from Ole Miss

By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

Score early. Score often.
The first part of that mantra came easy to the
Gators all weekend, but it took until Sunday for
them to realize the second.
UF continued its streak of scoring four runs
early against Mississippi on Sunday, getting
four in the second inning, and, instead of cool-
ing off, added six more in later innings on its
way to a 10-2 series-clinching victory.
The Gators (17-4, 5-1 Southeastern
Conference) did not score after the second
inning in their 5-4 loss to the No. 8 Rebels on
Friday night, nor did they score late in their 6-4
win on Saturday.
"I didn't really care when we got
them. I just wanted to score one
more run than they did."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Sunday's win puts UF in sole possession of
first place in the SEC East.
Of the Gators' 179 runs this year, 71 have
come in the first two innings, just shy of40
percent.
"I didn't really care when we got them. I just
wanted to score one more run than they did,"
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.
A Mississippi fielding error at second base
on what could have been a double play opened
the door for UF, and the six-through-nine hit-
ters each followed with RBIs.
Unlike Friday and Saturday, the Gators
cushioned their early four-run lead.
Freshman second baseman Josh Adams
added breathing room to UF's early lead in the
fifth inning, blasting an opposite-field home
run into the Gators' bullpen.
"He's killing the ball now," fellow freshman
and UF starter Tommy Toledo said. "He's on
fire."
Toledo (4-0,1.93 ERA) had an iffy start to the
game, giving up a walk and a single with two
outs in the first inning, but recovered to retire
the next seven batters on his way to his longest
career outing. He hurled for seven innings,
spreading six hits and allowing just one run.
The Rebels (15-8, 3-3 SEC) threatened to
catch up in a big way in the fourth inning,
leading off with a double and then a single to
score their first run. But Toledo buckled down
and induced three straight pop-ups to end the
inning and any promise the frame held for

Freshmen lead way in pair of victories against ranked teams


* FIVE NEWCOMERS KEY
SWEEP OF NO. 5 OLE MISS,
NO. 47 MISSISSIPPI STATE.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Winning on the road in a hostile
environment is hard enough.
Defeating a top-five team while
playing five freshmen and then
following it up with a win at home
against another ranked opponent is
a little more difficult.
The UF men's tennis team kept
its Southeastern Conference hopes
alive with wins against No. 5
Mississippi on Friday and No. 47
Mississippi State on Sunday.
The No. 18 Gators defeated
the Re ls (13-4, 4-2 SEC) 5-2 in
Oxford, where Mississippi had
lost just twice in its last 50 regular-
season matches, and then took care
of the Bulldogs (8-6, 2-4 SEC) 5-2 at
home.
"What stood out most (on
Sunday) was how difficult it is
to back up big victories with dis-
ciplined effort," UF coach Andy
Jackson said. "We had a team that
was able to do it, and that means
as much to me as the result on
Friday."
With the wins, UF (10-4,5-1 SEC)
remains one match behind Georgia
for first place in the SEC.


The Gators started slow against
the Rebels on Friday.
They lost all three doubles
matches by the same 8-4 score.
But for the second time this sea-
son, UF was able to rebound from
dropping the doubles point by win-
ning five of six singles courts.
Senior Greg Ouellette, No. 3 na-
tionally, defeated the No. 16 player
in the nation handily, 6-2, 6-2, to get
UF on the scoreboard.
Then with UF down 2-1, three
Gators freshmen stepped up.
Freshman Tyler Hochwalt
moved to 13-1 in his singles career
with a 6-3, 6-3 win against the
Rebels followed by a 6-3, 6-4 vic-
tory on Sunday.
"(I'm) fairly confident,"
Hochwalt said. "I've been on a roll
here lately, and I'm just trying to go
out there and take it one match at
a time."
Freshman Alex Lacroix knocked
off the No. 32 player in the nation,
his highest-ranked win so far, 7-6,
6-2, and gave UF a 3-2 lead against
the Rebels. Freshman Erik Corace
won two" matches over the week-
end, including his 6-1, 7-6 (6) victo-
ry against Mississippi that clinched
the match for UF. He entered the
weekend with a 1-2 singles record
on the year.
On Sunday, the Gators won
two of three doubles courts to seal
the point and then took the first
four singles courts in straight sets
to clinch the dual match victory


against the Bulldogs.
"I'm not surprised that [the
freshmen have] progressed. this
fast," Jackson said. "I mean,
I'm surprised that they can beat
Tennessee, Ole Miss on the road


and Mississippi State in one week.
I think that would be unrealistic for
me to tell the guys to do that at the
beginning of the year."
The No. 4 UF women's tennis
team won its eighth and ninth


matches in a row on Friday and
Sunday. -
The Gators (12-1, 6-0 SEC) shook
off some rust in a 6-1 victory against
Mississippi at home before winning
at No. 59 Mississippi State 7-0.

Nelson gave up two unearned runs in
the top of fifth when UF emphatically broke
its nine-game errorless streak by committing
three in the same inning two by Bush and
one by Enea. The easy victory wrapped up
a less-than-exciting series against the clearly
overmatched, Longwpod. The Gators are now
8-0 all-time against the.Lancers, with all.of the


games decided by five runs or more.
In the first game of a doubleheader on
Saturday, UF again needed just five innings
on the way to a 9-1 blowout win with Nelson
inside the circle.
In game two, Adkins got her first career
start for the Gators. She pitched four solid
innings, allowing four hits and giving up no
walks or runs in her first career victory.
"It's great for us. It's important for us,"
said Adkins of the role players' contributions.
"Eventually, we're going to have to fill some
holes."
Brombacher came in to finish the last three
innings, earning her second save of the season
in a 6-0 decision.
After Sunday's game, Walton said he was
impressed with the entire team's ability to con-
tribute in particular, Bruder and Adkins -
but said it isn't likely the bench players' roles
will be increased once SEC play resumes.
"We're pretty.set in what we're doing right
now," he said.

good right now."
The last person to enter the locker room is
guard Nick Calathes.
Calathes sits down, takes what appears to be
his first breath in a while and starts to grin.
His phone is ringing off and on for the next
five minutes.
Wift a stat line of 11 points, 13 rebounds and
11 assists, Calathes has just made history. He has
become only the second Gators player ever to
record a triple-double, joining Corey Brewer's
2005 performance against Jacksonville.
"I kind of wished I didn't know," Calathes
said in his typically humble fashion. "I would


take a win over that every day."
Yet for Calathes, who on Friday had both, his
accomplishments speak volumes for just how far
this team has come.
"I kind of wished I didn't know. [
would take a win over that every
day."
Nick Calathes
UF freshman guard

Ever since UF checked, out against Alabama
and limped out of the first round of the
Southeastern Conference Tournament, this team
has turned the invisible comer that coaches


dream about.
The Gators have won their first two games by
a whopping 52 points.
Friday's 28-point margin was the third-larg-
est postseason win in school history.
It's hard to determine what triggered the
transformation.
It might be the shot of reality missing the
NCAA Tournament provided.
It could be UF coach Billy Donovan's move
to kick the team out of its practice facility, or it
could just be a matter of time and finally coming
into their own.
Regardless, the Gators are clicking on all
cylinders.
"At this rate, I don't ever want to go back,"
Lucas said.

Mississippi.
Mississippi got its leadoff
men on in the sixth and sev-
enth innings, but UF shortstop
Cole Figueroa aided Toledo by
turning double plays each time,
including a diving stop.
"I'thought it was a base
hit off the bat," Toledo said. "I
couldn't believe that (Figueroa)
turned that."
Left fielder Avery Barnes'
single in the fifth inning ex-
tended his hitting streak to 13
games his last game without
a hit came on Feb. 29 against
Miami. His .400 batting average
leads the team.
Mississippi coach Mike
Bianco was upset with his squad
for losgthe series to a team he
believes to be worse than his.
"They just play with more
confidence, they play harder
than us, and that's the disap-
pointing thing," Bianco said of
UF. "The disappointing thing is
they're not as talented as us."
The Gators sped out of
the gates on Saturday, scor-
ing four runs in the first in-
ning off Mississippi's Cody
Satterwhite, and never trailed.
Sophomore reliever Kyle
Mullaney induced a game-end-


ing double play with two Rebels
on base, ending Mississippi's
chance at a comeback win for
the second consecutive night.
The Gators got a fantastic
pitching performance from
starter Billy Bullock on Friday
night, but it went to waste when


Mississippi won the game on
a fielding error by UF catcher
Buddy Munroe.
Before being pulled after giv-
ing up two hits and two runs in
the bottom of the ninth, Bullock
had allowed only three hits and
two runs.


"We played well all week-
end, and we should have come
out with three wins," Toledo
said. "But we were fortunate
enough to come out with two
of them."
