Senator defends eligibility
~ NAGESH'S ADDRESS AT CENTER OF
ELIGIBILITY CONTROVERSY.

By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A UF student senator representing off-cam-
pus students is doing so from a few hundred
miles away at least technically.
Members of a Senate committee said
Wednesday that Sen. Sheldon Nagesh's home
address in Texas satisfied a vague Student Body
statute regarding the ZIP code needed to repre-
sent Student Government's District E.
In its recommendation to the Senate, which
.. ..i will vote on the case Tuesday, the Rules and
Ethics Committee determined Nagesh's
Gainesville P.O. Box was also
Student sufficient, and the senator
0 o1ernment shouldn'tbe expelled.
The controversy over
: Nagesh's address started March 25, when Sen.
Ben Cavataro, Orange and Blue Party Senate
,.leader, charged that Nagesh shouldn't be al-
.: lowed to keep his District E seat because the ad-
dress on a resume Nagesh submitted for a Senate
committee listed an address at the Phi Delta
Theta Fraternity house located in District A.
In Cavataro's charge, he provided screen cap-
tures of Nagesh's Facebook page, which showed
his address as Phi Delta Theta 317.
Nagesh discounted Cavataro's evidence be-
cause he said Facebook is not a credible source,
and there is no photographic evidence of him
living there.
Nagesh said he submitted a roster of frater-
nity members to the committee that showed he
was listed as out of house. He said he uses the
house as a mailing address because it's conve-
nient to pick up mail there between lunches and
Harrison Diamond Alligalor Staff dinners.

Orlando bomb suspect has local ties


By DREW HARWELL

A man who was arrested Tuesday
at the Orlando International Airport on
charges that he stowed the components
of a pipe bomb in his luggage told inves-
tigators he had purchased the pieces in
Gainesville, according to a criminal com-
plaint filed Wednesday.
Kevin C. Brown, 32, was stopped


before boarding an Air Jamaica flight to
Montego Bay when
Transportation Security
Administration employ--
ees found two vodka
bottles containing nitro-
methane, a flammable
fuel used in drag racing.
A model rocket ignit-
Brown er, lighters, prescription
bottles filled with BB
pellets and lighter fluid were also found


inside his checked baggage, according to
the document.
A backpack Brown was wearing at the
time held diagrams on how to construct a
pipe bomb using items like the ones in his
luggage.
According to Seminole County Jail
records, Brown's last residence was at
3700 27th Street, Gainesville's Leington
Crossing Apartments. Brown moved in

Dahlem's

safety site

dswerdlow@alligator.org

One year ago today, Gainesville Police
Department Lt. Corey Dahlem took to the
streets to protect revelers of UF's men's bas-
ketball national championship. In the early
hours of April 3, 2007, a drunken driver hit
Dahlem, and he died the next day.
"We don't want any families to go
through what our family has gone
through."

GPD Lt. Corey Dahlem's widow

His widow, Sally Dahlem, stood out-
side the Reitz Union on Wednesday, en-
couraging UF students to use Nightlife
Navigators, a new Web site that provides
information about nighttime transportation
to reduce drunken drinking.
"We don't want any families to go
through what our family has gone
through," Dahlem said. "It's not an acci-
dent. It's something that's totally prevent-
able."
Nightlife Navigators celebrated its offi-
cial kickoff Wednesday on the Reitz Union
North Lawn with free pizza and a short ad-
dress by Dahlem.
G. Tyler Parramore, a UF law student
and the Web site's director, said Student
Government, Florida Blue Key, the
Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic
Council started planning the site in fall of
2007.
The site lists Gainesville cab companies,
Regional Transit System Later Gator routes
and the free ride services offered by Gator
Ride, a UF student organization.
Parramore said he's working with City
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who
also serves as UF's Assistant Vice President
for Student Affairs, to create taxi hubs

Pulitzer Prize winner discusses polio's role in history


* AUTHOR DETAILS SWEEPING
FEAR OF DISEASE IN '40s, '50s.

By SARAH JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Pulitzer Prize-winner David
Oshinsky spoke at UF Wednesday
night about the historical and cultural
effects that polio, which hasn't been
seen in the U.S. in two decades, has had
on the 20th century.
Oshinsky, a history professor at the
University of Texas at Austin, won the
2006 Pulitzer Prize in History for his
most recent work, "Polio: An American
Story."
About 50 people came to Pugh Hall
to hear his lecture, which was hosted by
the UF Department of History in part-
nership with the Alexander Grass Chair
in Jewish Studies.
Oshinsky spoke about the scientific
and cultural details of the race to cure
polio, a childhood disease that ravaged
the U.S. in the '40s and '50s.
He told personal anecdotes, includ-
ing his experience as one of the two
million children who were part of the
largest public health experiment in
history.


Oshinsky emphasized the paralyz-
ing fear the virus caused across the
country and the "great polio crusade"
that ensued in the effort to knock out
the disease that targeted children.
"I often write about things I remem-
ber," he said, "and I remember my
mother making me stay out of crowds,
out of swimming pools and away from
beaches."
"This is a story with a great end-
ing," Oshinsky said, speaking of how
quickly the vaccine was discovered
after research began.
As Oshinsky dosed, he reminded
the audience that although polio has
been eradicated in the U.S., it still exists
in the rest of the world.
But there is hope that the virus will
be eliminated from the planet by 2010,
he said.
UF history senior lecturer Steven
Noll uses Oshinsky's novels, including
"Polio," in his courses to help students
better connect with the material.
"I'm always looking for books that
engage students and that are fun to
read," Noll said. "And he's just such a
good writer."
"This is not a book you want to read
going to sleep, 'cause it will keep you
up," he said.

Story," after speaking about it to a small crowd in Pugh Hall Wednesday evening.

Event to promote organ donation


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

As part of National Donate Life
Month, members of a student or-
ganization that encourages organ
donation will host a free concert
tonight at the Orange & Brew.
The event, Lifeapalooza, fea-
tures performances from three
artists and speeches from two
organ recipients, said Michael
Glickman, co-director of Get
Carded.
Doors open at 8:30 p.m., and
the first of three musical guests,
Nicole Christianson, is scheduled
to take the stage at 9 p.m. The
Matt Hobbs Band will follow.
Glickman said members of
Get Carded would also distrib-
ute state-approved, organ-donor
identification cards to attendees.
He said the organization
held another event in fall


called "Greeks Get Carded,"
and this is the second year of
"Lifeapalooza."

"It's just a transforma-
tion for me. My life before
the transplant always
on dialysis. It's been
such a huge change for
the better."
Elyssa Winston
UFjunior

He expects attendance to be
higher this year because Get
Carded teamed up with the Reitz
Union Board and the American
Medical Student Association to
offer the concerts.
At about 10:30 p.m., crowd
members will form a giant hu-
man ribbon symbolizing support
for organ donation on the Reitz
Union Amphitheatre while don-


ning green T-shirts and glow
sticks distributed at the concert.
After the photo-op, the
night's headlining band, Umoja
Orchestra, will perform and an-
other transplant recipient, will
speak to the crowd.
Elyssa Winston, a UF recre-
ation and event management ju-
nior and one of the night's speak-
ers, received a kidney transplant
from her father in January.
Winston, who had kidney
problems since she was 13, was on
dialysis for a year after her kidney
failed in December 2006.
She said her speech would
focus on what her life was like
before she received her trans-
plant and how the procedure has
changed her.
"It's just a transformation for
me," she said. "My life before the
transplant always on dialysis.
It's been such a huge change for
the better."

Woman attacked


in Constans Theatre

Police are looking for a man who reportedly attacked a
woman early Wednesday morning in the Constans Theatre,
located adjacent to the Reitz Union.
A building services employee told the University Police
Department she was walking through a door in one of the
building's stairwells when a man grabbed her and pulled her
toward him, according to a UPI news release.
She was able to punch the man and run away,
SafPli the release stated.
Saft The incident occurred around 5:40 a.m., accord-
ing to the release.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot-7-inch white man with
brown hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a white
T-shirt with a red bulldog logo and black shorts, the release
stated. While the Wednesday incident resembles three inci-
dents reported on campus in early November 2007, officers do
not believe this case is related.
Anyone with relevant information or who has been a victim
of a similar attack should contact Det. Mandy Spurlin at 352-
392-1111.

Gym to add classrooms


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

Construction to add five classrooms
to the Florida Gym began Tuesday.
The classrooms should be ready by
fall semester for anatomy and physiol-
ogy classes and labs, said Michele Dye,
spokeswoman for the College of Health
and Human Performance.
One of the basketball courts in the
south side of the gym will be trans-
formed into five classrooms and one
storage room designed for lab-based
classes in the Department ot Applied
Physiology and Kinesiology, Dye said.
There will still be two courts available
for students to play basketball or other
sports, she said. The project was ap-
proved in December 2007 and received
$425,000 for construction from the Office
of the Provost "before all the budget
cuts," she said.
Dye said she didn't know if the extra


classrooms and classes would call for
hiring extra staff.
Mark Tillman, an associate profes-
sor in the Department of Applied
Physiology and Kinesiology, said the
5,534 square feet of classrooms would
allow the college to offer more course
sections.
"It's definitely needed," Tillman said.
"We have to turn students
On away every semester
CampUS because we don't have
enough seats for them."
He said during fall semesters there
are usually three anatomy lecture sec-
tions that accommodate about 700 stu-
dents, but lab space is limited. Adding
more classrooms with sinks could allow
for twice as many lab sections in the fall
and classes could be capped at 25 stu-
dents instead of 30, he said.
The ongoing construction will cut lab
space in half for now, but Tillman said
he hopes the "growing pains" will be
worth it.


UF ADMINISTER Ai' l

Committee: Can't cut CLAS


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

Officials from UF's College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences said the college would
be unable to make the 6 percent budget
cut UF President Bernie Machen asked
each college to prepare for earlier this
semester.
Laying off faculty members and elimi-
nating several degree programs are the
only ways CLAS could possibly cut 6
percent, or $3 million, from its 2008-2009
budget, according to a report from the
college's Faculty Finance Committee.
But the committee wrote that those
solutions would be too "drastic."
The report also identified six ways a
total of about $1 million could be saved,
such as eliminating the spring graduation
ceremony and all elective and Honors
courses.
But those suggestions would also
harm CLAS' mission, it stated.
Machen wrote in an e-mail Wednesday
he would not comment on the report


until he releases his budget recommen-
dations for next year, which should be
ready this month.
This would be the second $3 million
cut for CLAS' 2008-2009 budget. The col-
lege was forced to trim its budget due to
decreased legislative funding earlier this
year, and the commit-
tee released a report
in February advising
CLAS Interim Dean
Joe Glover on how to
C do so.
A few days before
the committee released
Glover that report, Machen
asked each department to submit a pro-
posal for a hypothetical 6 percent budget
cut next year in anticipation of more leg-
islative cuts.
Glover asked CLAS' finance com-
mittee to draft a second set of recom-
mendations, and he wrote in an e-mail
Wednesday that he would consider the
committee's concerns when he submits
his proposal to Machen this month.

Editorial

Dubious District

Senator's multiple

addresses suspicious
In yet another indication that UF's Student Government is
destined to continue business as usual, the Student Senate
Rules and Ethics Committee decided to unanimously al-
low Sen. Sheldon Nagesh to continue representing District E
despite pressing concerns about his true residential address
which is anyone's guess at this point.
We would by lying if we said that we were shocked at the
news.
The fact that Senate President Kellie Dale admitted Monday
that she was initially confused about Nagesh's address when
viewing his original application yet still decided to go along
with it as it was approved by other senators and the Senate sec-
retary speaks volumes about her leadership abilities.
Following the majority opinion when it is clearly not the
right course of action does not show signs of someone who has
the best interests of students in mind, but rather someone who
is willing to allow a bending or in this case a blurring of
the rules in keeping with party politics,
Of course.
And so we also have to question whether the same quiet
consent would have been exercised had Nagesh not been a
member of the ruling Gator Party.
Our guess is that his application would have not progressed
any further than an SG garbage can.
The argument at Wednesday's hearing gets even shadier.
The contention that Nagesh's Texas address could be valid
for representing students is laughable. Technically, the Student
Body statute that governs who may represent a particular dis-
trict states that those who wish to represent District E may be
from "all zip codes not listed above."
How conveniently ambiguous.
But to suggest and accept that it allows him to continue to
represent District E when he so dearly does not reside in Texas
full-time is a slap in the face to anyone who expected open, fair
government from this administration.
Does this one indistinct statute allow Nagesh the privilege of
representing District E?
That argument is so weak that it's hard to understand how
it could have been honestly accepted. When Audrey Goldman,
Chairwoman of the Rules and Ethics Committee, told senators
that the entire investigation of Nagesh's address would be
transparent, they should have definitely taken her word for it
-because we see right through it.
Further inspection of the statute reveals "All off-campus
residents will elect senators in multi-member districts based
upon the zip code in which they live." And according to Statute
322.125, "A Senator must live in the district which he or she rep-
resents at the time of his election."
So, when Nagesh produced a letter at the hearing that had
been mailed to him at a previously unknown Melrose address,
the red flags were abundantly cear.
Anyone could mail something to someone, even if the ad-
dress is completely bogus.
Also, knowing that Nagesh listed a District A address no-
tably the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house on his resume sent
to the Replacement and Agenda Committee leaves us wonder-
-ing what else he has misrepresented. If his resignation can't be
forced on a technicality, it should be demanded on account of
integrity.
This obvious attempt at deception also shows that the Rules
and Ethics Committee should consider dropping its second title
because they evidently do not understand any form of ethics.

Lawsuit is about professor's profits
I find it disgusting that there is a law-
suit over Einstein's Notes. I took Michael
Moulton's Wildlife Issues class in 2005, and
I was required to buy the mandatory "elec-
tronic textbook." At the time, it was $80 a
lot for a college student. The contents were
nothing more than a CD, DVD and a booklet
seemingly no larger than a driver's education
manual. All of this mass-produced, all of this
what I would call "cheap quality" and all
overpriced.
I could only assume the professor got a cut
of the profits by contracting with Faulkner
Press. To clarify, I attended every lecture and
never used Einstein's Notes. Yet I find the
underlying issue of money grubbing from
students' pockets to be the big problem here.
Give Einstein's a break, all students buy the
CD anyway for homework credit, what does
it matter in the end? They'll get your money
anyway.

Faulkner seeks to stifle knowledge flow
Faulkner Press is suing Einstein's Notes
for copying class notes without the pro-
fessor's permission. Wait, what? I thought
college was about passing on knowledge. I
guess Faulkner Press disagrees.
This falls so neatly into the "Fair Use"
clause of U.S. copyright law: "the fair use
of a copyrighted work ... for purposes such
as ... teaching (including multiple copies for
classroom use) [and] scholarship... is not an
infringement of copyright." Furthermore,
"ideas, ... concepts, principles" cannot be
copyrighted.
And to nail the lid on the coffin, Einstein's
Notes doesn't just blindly redistribute the
source material verbatim; they offer a new
product: a summary of the professor's lec-
ture, and a compilation of useful material for
the class. They cite their sources, which is all
that is required when using these materials
for their notes. Case closed.
The free flow of information is absolutely
critical to a democratic society. The University
of Florida is a place of learning. Let's not suf-
focate ourselves by depriving ourselves of
knowledge.

Tibet needs to be considered in context
The recent furor over the way China
handled the Tibetan riot only highlighted
the wide cultural gap between the Western


World and China. From an ethnic Chinese
point of view, the Tibetan uprising violated
two extremely important rules of social con-
duct within the Chinese society.
First, the Olympics is an international
event and China will be gaining interna-
tional political recognition and a tremendous
number of business opportunities. To that
extent, maintaining appearances or "face" is
paramount. The uprising is a direct slap to
that "face," a transgression that is not easily
forgiven or forgettable. Moreover, keeping
problems tightly controlled within the "fam-
ily" is necessary to not losing "face" in the
public. To an ordinary Chinese person, get-
ting the international media involved would
have appeared traitorous.
Second, most Chinese probably think
that Tibet benefited much from Chinese
rule. As such the uprising would appear as
ungratefulness on the part of the Tibetans.
Philanthropy plays a huge part in a Chinese
society. Thus, the uprising is also another slap
to the Chinese government's magnanimity, a
most egregious offense. The crushing of the
uprising was an internal affair and has noth-
ing to do with the international community.
Within this patriarchic society, the crush-
ing of the uprising was like a father disciplin-
ing his unruly child and the international
community has no business jabbing into
what was supposed to be a purely internal
affair. Using the Olympics as a way to apply
pressure would be ungrateful to the Chinese
hospitality.
To a Chinese person, keeping the dirty
laundry within the family is more important
than abstract ideas such as human rights, de-
mocracy or self-determination.

China has history of crushing dissent
I can't help but wonder if recent letters
defending China's "liberation" (invasion) of
Tibet were penned by Chinese Communist
Party members doing student work at UF.
This is the official party line in a country
without a free press, where opposition to
one-party, communist rule is dealt with
harshly and quickly. Americans remember
the events of Tiananmen Square some years
ago, when hundreds of student protesters
were shot and killed while peacefully assem-
bling. But the younger generation of Chinese
don't; they receive information only after it
has been carefully scrutinized and edited by
the country's 30,000 government-employed
Internet censors, among others.
A Google search of "Tiananmen Square"
in China yields very different results than


one entered anywhere else in the world. No
reference to the incident that caused interna-
tional outrage will even show up; just some
happy pictures of people celebrating the
"great Communist state." In an Orwellian
world, described in the novel 1984, where the
government controls all information that is
released to its citizens, forming an informed
opinion is difficult. And in a country like
China which has a 99 percent conviction
rate in its criminal trials dissent is danger-
ous business.
As Americans, we gasp in horror at this
act of sheer brutality. The Tibetan people
have spoken time again: China out, Dalai
Lama back in. Shouldn't the world support
them in getting what they want?

Party takes back seat in SG committees
I began my term as Student Senate presi-
dent excited about leading a two-party Senate
that would exercise dynamic debate to create
fresh ideas and new perspectives for the stu-
dent body. In order to accomplish that, how-
ever, I believe it's necessary that we consider
senators not based on their party affiliation
but rather on the ideas and goals they have to
improve the University of Florida.
Already, we have senators from both par-
ties working hard to increase campus safety,
contribute to the U.S. Public Interest Research
Groups' New Voters Project and provide for
a variety of food venues on campus. Party af-
filiation doesn't matter in these initiatives -
what matters is that student senators elected
to represent the student body are using their
platform points to help students throughout
the university.
I know that applying for committees is
very competitive. When I began my first term
as a student senator, I applied four times
before I was appointed to the Allocations
Committee five months into my term. I
encourage senators to continue applying for
committee seats, including the ad hoc com-
mittees I will create to investigate special in-
terests, and to use their knowledge and pas-
sion to continue the University of Florida's
tradition of greatness.

Partisan politics distract from duty
Student Senate reporting needs to be
more representative of Senate's business.
Wednesday's article referencing the call for
Senate President Kellie Dale's resignation


THURSDAY, APRIL 3,2008 U ALLIGATOR, 7


was an example of irresponsible journalism;
a higher degree of integrity needs to be used
when reporting on senate meetings.
The call for resignation was an attempt to
undermine the progress of the Student Senate
and in no way the focal point of the meeting.
The meeting included a resolution honoring
Army veteran Jonathon Cote and also funded
two new student groups.
Members of the Orange and Blue Party
have made a habit of engaging in partisan
politics instead of focusing on measures that
will benefit the students. These actions are
detrimental to Student Government's mis-
sion of serving the student body and need to
cease in order for the Student Senate to carry
out its duties.
The few bipartisan efforts undertaken
have produced great things and this should
continue. Our duty as senators is to better the
experience of each student at the University
of Florida.
Thomas Cockriel
Student Senate Judiciary Committee chairman

Committee meetings broke Florida law
The flurry of letters from the Gator Party
shows their peculiar interpretation of the
Florida Sunshine Statutes. This doesn't
surprise me since it was the Gator Party-ap-
pointed SG Supreme Court that reinterpreted
the 141 Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
to disqualify the online voting amendment.
The Rules and Agenda Committee meet-
ing in question had no public notice posted
the required 24 hours ahead of time and no
agenda posted for the public. That's against
the law.
They met behind locked doors despite
knowing the public could no longer gain
access to their meeting, refused to stop or
change location. That's also against the law
no matter how well-intentioned.
They didn't record the meeting or take
official minutes so there is no record of what
was said.
That not only violates Florida Law, but it
also violates Student Body Statutes Chapter
315. The Gator Party defended these actions
by claiming ignorance. The problem is that
means not only does the Gator Party not
know Florida law, they also don't know their
own statutes, which they changed just last
year.
In the election they pitched themselves
as trustworthy of our votes because of their
experience. But if they don't even read the
statutes they vote on, what does that say
about their experience?

Residents discuss city issues with commissioners


* TRAFFIC, ENVIRONMENT
DISCUSSED AT MEETING.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Citizens of Southwest Gainesville
had few complaints Wednesday
night at the third of four district City
Commission meetings.
The meeting was low-key after
District 2's fervent complaints about
a proposed homeless center and
District 1's overwhelmingly high
turnout.
District 3, which includes the


west half of UF's campus and has a
high student population, has few se-
rious problems, said Commissioner
Jack Donovan, who represents the
district.
"On the west side of Gainesville,
development tends to be satisfac-
tory,"'he said.
The meeting opened with a
presentation by city officials, who
highlighted the area's growth, in-
cluding construction of banks and
new apartment complexes. About
25 people attended compared
with 100 at the District 1 meeting.,
but about the same amount showed
up at the District 2 meeting.


Only a handful voiced concerns,
which were mostly about road qual-
ity and the environment.
District 3 resident Dwight
Adams brought a list of America's
50 most envi-
Gainesville City ronmentally
Commission friendly cities
with him, not-
ing that Gainesville was not on it.
S"They should be working to get
on the next list," he said before the
meeting.
Nancy Sever, a District 3 resident
for 22 years, said she was concerned
the city wasn't doing enough about
global warming.


"I'll be dead by the time this hap-
pens, but my grandchildren will be
alive," Sever said.
Vibeke Vala, who has lived in the
district for 40 years, was concerned
with narrow and steep sidewalk
ramps along Northwest 34th Street.
"For me, I push my father in a
wheelchair and I can't maneuver
him," Vala said. Despite the dis-
trict's high student population, few
students were at the meeting.
Vanessa Vargas, a UF law student
who attended the meeting for class,
said she didn't realize that the dis-
trict covers the house she has owned
for more than two years until she


arrived at the meeting.
"Now that I'm here, I'm actually
looking at some stuff," said Vargas,
who said she has had trouble with
neighbors violating noise ordi-
nances.
Donovan encouraged citizens
who spoke to share their "visions"
for the city. The commission plans to
vote on an official vision for the city
sometime this summer, he said, and
he hoped to get citizen input.
"My vision for Gainesville is that
it be sustainable in balance of popu-
lation and environment, vital in
economy and culture, and safe and
sound for everybody," he said.


Senate will hear case Tuesday


HEARING, from page 1


replacement senator, he listed a P.O.
Box belonging to ZIP code 32604 as his
mailing address. He argued that his P.O.
Box qualifies him to run for District E be-
cause that district includes all ZIP codes
not covered by districts A, B, C or D, ac-
cording to UF's Student Body statutes.
Nagesh received a subpoena Tuesday
from Audrey Goldman, chairwoman of
the Rules and Ethics Committee to pro-
vide evidence he doesn't live at the fra-
ternity house and he owns the P.O. Box.
Nagesh showed photos. of the box's
key and him opening it with the key. He
said he receives his bills at that location,
He said when he filled out his Senate
application, he provided the P.O. Box
address because the form asked him to
provide a mailing address, not a place of
residency.
He submitted evidence to the com-
mittee showing that his residence is at an
address in Melrose, about 20 miles from
Gainesville, with a 32666 ZIP code. He
provided a bank record and mail receipt
of a letter sent to that address.
But Sen. Beau Frail, a committee
member, said he did not consider the
Melrose receipt valid because it didn't


prove Nagesh lived there only that
someone mailed something to him at
that address.
Nagesh also submitted a copy of his
Texas driver's license with a Houston
address.
The committee found this to be a valid
address and said the ZIP code qualified
him to represent District E under the
statutes' current wording.
"This is clearly not what the
Student Body statutes are
meant to imply."
Cain Norris
Cavataro's counsel


Though Goldman asserted that it
wasn't the committee's job to interpret
the statutes, many senators at the hear-
ing complained that the wording should
be revised.
Cain Norris, Cavataro's counsel, said
after the meeting that the committee's
decision established a person's out-of-
town address as an acceptable claim for
residency in the Student Senate.
"This is clearly not what the Student
Body statutes are meant to imply,"
Norris said.


Web site paid for by tuition funds

around bars and clubs. Mastrodicasa
said the taxi hubs would hopefully be
established by this summer.
Parramore said he also hopes to at-
tract more cab companies to Gainesville
and form partnerships between the com-
panies and local apartment complexes
to provide reduced rates on weekend
nights.
"Instead of just saying, 'Don't drink
and drive,' like so many campaigns do,
we wanted to do something to solve the
problem," he said.


Kevin Reilly, UF Student Body presi-
dent-elect, said it cost about $8,000 in SG
funds to start the Web site and advertise
for it. The money comes
from students' Activity
and Service fees, which
Share part of tuition.
After the ceremony,
Dahlem said she thinks
the Web site could help
reduce drunken driv-
Dahlem ing because it reminds
students about transportation altera-
tives.
"If anything good can come out of
this, it's awareness," she said.

UF receives $3M in grants


By ILEANA MORALES
Alligator Writer
imorales@alligator.org

UF research projects were given more
than $3 million in grants from the Florida
Legislature, the Board of Governors an-
nounced on Wednesday.
The grant program, established dur-
ing the 2007 legislative session, intends
to help move ideas from campuses to the
marketplace, said Bill Edmonds, spokes-
man for the board, which is the highest
governing body for Florida's university
system.
Seven other state universities received
grants. UF claimed the most money, with
seven of 19 awards from the Legislature.
Six "Phase I" grants, worth about
$500,000 each, intend to help UF market
projects in early stages of developing
business plans. The "Phase II" grant
worth $250,000 is to help finalize project
plans.
Fueling university research will ben-
efit the state economy, which is moving
toward being more knowledge-based and
technology-driven, Edmonds said.
"Go back 10 years ago the legisla-
tion wasn't funding anything like this,"
Edmonds said.
He said Florida could no longer
depend on agriculture and tourism to
sustain itself, especially when less tax
revenue has been collected than the previ-
ous year for the second time in the state's
modern history.
"This knowledge-based economy ap-
pears to be where the real action is," he
said.


Edmonds said the award amounts
aren't huge, but they are big enough to
make a "huge difference" and aid those
whose expertise is to find ways to market
their research.
"You almost develop a sense of trag-
edy because there are so many great ideas
that never get anywhere," Edmonds said.
"You can never take luck and personality
out of the equation, but we're trying to
add another element."
"You almost develop a sense of
tragedy because there are so
many great ideas that never get
anywhere."
Bill Edmonds
Board of Governors spokesman

David Day, office of technology licens-
ing director in UF's Office of the Vice
President of Research, said research from
universities makes them the "engines of
the new economy."
Day said UF's awards would fund
cancer, autism and Parkinson's disease
research. These projects would've gotten
by without the grants, but not as quickly
or successfully, he said.
"The rest of the world is always going
to be able to offer lower cost goods than
us," Day said. "So it is through complex-
ity and technology that we will be able to
compete in the world."
Day said the research being funded by
the grant program could begin stimulat-
ing the sluggish state economy in the next
two years.

Just A Bad Dream


Band touring, preparing new long player


ALLIE CONTI AVENUE WRITER
Nightmare of You is not a hard-
core band (however misleading
their name may be), it is not a pop-
punk band and the members are
not fighting against their roots.
They are simply branching out,-
both literally and sonically.
Veterans of the hardcore circuit,
guitarist and vocalist Brandon
Reilly and guitarist Joseph
McCaffrey said they have finally
found something they can settle
on: melodic rock rife with innu-
* endo and intrigue.
"It was fate," McCaffrey joked.
"No but seriously," Reilly,
26, said. "I've found something


that I can really be proud of. I've
expanded my musical horizons
and had a chance to develop my
own style of playing."
They just left their homes in
Brooklyn days ago to start on a
three-month, full U.S. tour, which
started in North Carolina. The
tour comes to Gainesville's 1982
this Monday and will finish at
Gramercy Park in June.
They will be supporting two
self-released albums: 2005's
"Nightmare of You" and 2007's
"Bang! EP", both of which have
been met with praise by both old
fans that have followed Reilly
from both the Long Island punk
scene and sharp-sensed critics who


compare them to The Smiths.
Reilly, previously the 18-year-
old guitarist of late pop-punk
legends, The Movielife, won't
"I've found ometihng that I
can rtallv be proud of I'\e ex-
panded my nluslcal lhoiizo1ns
and had a chance to dc\ cIh.p
my own style of playing."

Nightmare of You guitarist

be playing at that band's re-
union show this summer's at the
Bamboozle Festival, but he wishes
to dispel rumors that there is any
animosity between him and his ex-
bandmates.


"I think the biggest miscon-
ception is that Vinnie (Caruana,
lead singer of The Movielife) and
I aren't on good terms. He came
over to my house the other day
and we still hang out," Reilly said.
"I guess I started feeling a
little dissatisfied toward the end
of us as a band. I was writing my
own material and I knew it just
didn't mesh with the sound of The
Movielife, that's all."
After meeting McCaffrey of
various local New York hardcore
bands, the two began to flesh out
some of Reilly's solo material.
The two admitted to spinning
"an unhealthy amount of Bowie's
'Scary Monsters'" as well as lots of
Wilco, The Grateful Dead,, Spoon,
reggae and dub as they prepare to
begin work on their second full-


length album.
"We're writing it right now,"
Reilly said. "We don't want to put
it out ourselves after seeing how
much work goes into putting out
a record. We're talking loosely to a
few labels."
On the tour, the band will be
playing a variety of their material.
"You'll definitely be hearing
some B-sides and some songs that
are older than the record," Reilly
said. "Probably about three tunes
that aren't on the 'Bang EP' or the
'S/T.'"
"We will probably pull out
some really old stuff but toward
the end of the tour, you will be
probably hearing some new stuff,"
McCaffrey added. "Forty sound
checks are bound to produce
something."

Film's co-writer discusses screenplay, cast, sports and charity work


This Friday marks the cul-
mination of quite a journey for
a little screenplay that could
when "Leatherheads" hits the big
screen.
The movie joins such Clooney
Studios productions as "Syriana,"
"Good Night, and Good Luck,"
"Ocean's Thirteen" and recent
box-office hit "Michael Clayton."
The movie, set in the backdrop
of the NFL's inception and incor-
porating a comedic, competitive
courtship, has all the elements for
a film that could turn out to be a
classic football comedy.
The cast is stellar. George
Clooney (who produced the
picture) stars as Jimmy "Dodge"
Connolly a classic depiction
of the tough-nosed, blue-collared
kind of guy that paved the way for
the sport we know and love today.
John Krasinski (Jim from "The
Office") plays the role of Carter
Rutherford, who is the typical, ul-
tra-hyped athlete with good looks
and impressive background (the
Tom Brady of the 1920's).
Both of these men battle for the
female love interest in a clash of
testosterone. That coveted woman
is Lexi Littleton, played by Renee
Zellweger. Lexi is a feisty reporter
who is actively trying to uncover
Rutherford's flaws.
With a cast that includes two
Oscar winners and an emerging
young actor in Krasinski, the act-
ing should be fantastic.
But what of the writing?
I'm pleased to introduce you to
Rick Reilly the highly esteemed
and comically gifted co-writer of
"Leatherheads."
Reilly is most famous as a
sportswriter and humanitarian.
He has written for years, earn-
ing national Sports Illustrated
Sportswriter of the Year honors
11 different times. He has since
moved on and will soon be a fix-
ture at everyone's favorite sports
network ESPN. As for his
humanitarian efforts, Reilly has
focused immense amounts of time,
energy and money into "Nothing
But Nets," a malaria prevention
campaign that raises money for
nets to protect families from mos-
quitoes in Africa.
In the midst of all the madness, -
I had the privilege of stealing a
moment of Reilly's time to ask him
a few questions about the movie he
had been hoping would get made
for over 16 years now.

AVENUE: First off, in reading the
history of this screenplay, I noticed
it has been in the works for over a
decade. How excited are you about
the fact that it is finally getting
done, and how happy are you with
the final product? --


RICK REILLY: Look, Clooney
could've reset the whole thing
onto a German U boat and I
would've been thrilled. It got
made! This thing has been kicking
around Hollywood for 16 years
now. It's sort of been the Paris
Hilton of screenplays. Everybody
liked it from afar and then when
they got up close, they decided
to bail. Mel Gibson was going to
do it then didn't. Ray Liotta was,
then didn't. Michael Keaton, then
didn't. Clooney once before, then
didn't. So when his agent told us,
"George took the script to Lake
Cuomo this summer and rewrote
it and he wants to direct and star
in it. What do you think?" it took
us about one millisecond to go,
"Uh, sure."
I have no idea what the final
product is going to be like. There's
been like six different writers with
their hands on this thing over the
years. It's like having a baby and
then having somebody whisk the
baby away, and you haven't seen
the baby for 16 years, and you
have no idea how the baby has
been raised or what it's been fed
or what it's been through, and
then suddenly the baby shows
up running into your arms carry-
ing a large check. You're just so
happy the baby is alive, you're not
real concerned with what clothes
she's wearing.

AVENUE: I am working on a
screenplay myself, and when I
write in certain characters I envi-
sion certain people in Hollywood
playing the role. How do you feel
about the collection of cast mem-


PEDRO LORENZ GONZALEZ AVENUE CONTRIBUTING WRITER


bers, and how does it compare to
your vision?
RR: Well, we really couldn't have
dreamed of a better lead than
Clooney. In those days before the
NFL, guys often played well into
their 40s and sometimes up to 50,
and Clooney is in great shape in
this movie, even though he got
dinged up pretty good. But he's
perfect for the part we envisioned:
charming, tough, quick-witted,
a bit of a wild-ass, not entirely
well-meaning, bit of a drinker and
prankster. For the part of Lexie, I

It's like having a baby and
tnen naving somebody whisk
the baby away, and you
haven't seen the baby for 16
years... and then suddenly
the baby shows up running
into your arms carrying a
large check.

envisioned somebody a lot like
Renee Zellweger. I think she has
a'perfect 1920s face, as she proved
so well in "Chicago." In person,
she's a real Texas spitfire, which
we wanted. And for the part of
Carter Rutherford, I don't think
we imagined somebody so tall as
John Krasinski. But from being
on the set, he was really perfect
otherwise. Very all-American. He's
athletic, too. He played hoops in
high school and says he probably
could've played some small col-
lege or Division 3, but he went
to Costa Rica or somewhere and
did relief work. Very funny guy,
too, very quick. A perfect foil for

Clooney's pranks and barbs.

AVENUE: Do you have any advice
about persevering for writers
out there who are battling in this
highly competitive industry?
RR: Dude, it took me 16 years to
get ONE made. Do I sound like I
know what I'm doing?

AVENUE: Where do you think
"Leatherheads" will rank amongst
the great sports comedies? Rank
these: "Caddyshack," "Bull
Durham," "Slap Shot," "The
Longest Yard," "Leatherheads."
RR: It would help if I see it first.

AVENUE: Be honest with me
now- you know all the sports
guys out there are worried about
how much of a love story this is as
opposed to the football aspect. So
tell me, does the movie border on
pure love story, or would you say
the average sports jock would be
satisfied with the football content?
RR: One thing I've learned is you
can't just make a pure sports mov-
ie. It'll never work. They want date
movies. So that's how we wrote
it: enough football to make the
guys happy, enough romance to
make the girls happy. I think that's
what we ended up with, from
what I hear. Plus the girls also get
Clooney, so it's definitely a date
movie. I can tell you, from being
on the set for a bunch of the foot-
ball, they took excruciating pains
to make the football look authentic
to 1924. Guys got creamed. They'd
run the play over and over again
until they got it right. Clooney
had one play that would've been
so sweet. He was playing DB


(defensive back) and he turned
at the perfect time and the ball
went right through his hands. It
just killed him. Then again, Asante
Samuels had the same chance to
win the Super Bowl and blew it,
too, right?

AVENUE: How much in line with
the true story of the formulation of
the NFL does the movie fall?
RR: Sort of. Pro football was
a sport for rogues and ne'er-do-
wells. In those days you played
college and then got a good job
somewhere. Pro football was
like roller derby. But when Ernie
Nevers and Red Grange came
over, everything changed, and not
always for the better. More money,
many more rules, a whole new
discipline was thrust upon them.
And that's what Dodge is fighting:
In order to save his sport, he has
to ruin it for himself. That's the
movie in a nutshell.

AVENUE: George Clooney's acts of
benevolence have been well-docu-
mented with his activism on-the
social issues in Darfur. I noticed
the work you are doing in Africa
with the "Nothing But Nets" chari-
ty that raises funds to fight malaria
via use of mosquito nets. Are there
any plans for you and Clooney to
team up away from the big screen
for charity work?
RR: From your lips to George's
ears we could really use him. On
the other hand, he's really helped
bring Darfur into the American
mindset, so he's got enough to do.

AVENUE: I noticed you have had
experiences that most sports
fanatics like myself would give
anything for. Which of your expe-
riences was the most impressive or
most memorable?
RR: I have to say, arriving at a
football stadium that you and your
buddy invented, filled with char-
acters that you dreamed up out of
whole Miller Lites, hearing George
Clooney and Renee Zellwegger
recite lines you wrote, that's pretty
metal.

AVENUE: Have anything planned
if "Leatherheads" premieres at #1
in the box office this weekend?
RR: Kiss Halle Berry full on the
mouth.

I guess it will be up to us to
decide where "Leatherheads" will
rank among the greatest sports
comedies of all time.
Personally, after correspond-
ing with Mr. Reilly and looking
at his past work, I expect a strong
product.
Who knows? Maybe we will
see Reilly on E! as the number one
story: "Crazed Screenwriter Plants
One Oin falle Berry!"

Top


5 tips to avoid a fashion fiasco on campus


VANESSA DIMAGGIO AVENUE WRITER


Admit it, ladies.
You wore butterfly clips during your
pre-teen years and donned glittery "Hottie"
and "Angel" T-shirts in middle school.
While you're probably well aware of
these crimes of fashion, you may be com-
mitting other fashion faux pas on a daily
basis without even knowing it.
As a friendly warning of how to steer
clear of repeating your formidable fashion
foibles, I've compiled a list of the top five
fashion faux pas seen on campus.

1. Too-tight jeans.
I know getting that last button fastened
and zipping the zipper all the way up
are big accomplishments for any girl, but
muffin tops aren't flattering on any body
shape.
Instead of spending 10 minutes doing
lunges in your bedroom trying to stretch
out the elastic in your jeans, try bumping


them up a size.
Jeans are designed to hug your curves,
not suffocate them.
A pair of well-fitting jeans is 10 times
sexier than a pair that squeezes you in all
the wrong places.

2. Wearing the wrong color for your
skin tone
I see it all the time: pale girls wearing
colors that wash them out, and darker skin
tones wearing colors that dull the vibrancy
of their skin.
You can find tons of sites on the Internet
that will tell you what "season' you are in
terms of the colors that look good on your
skin tone, so look it up some time.
As a rule of thumb, wearing clothes in
a color that closely resembles the color of
your skin is a no-no.
You can also find colors that look good
on you by your hair and eye color.


3. Visible Panty Lines
We've all done it at some point in our
lives. Wearing a very tight bottom with
granny panties is a time-honored fashion
faux pas among women.
As college students, we should know
better by now.
If you're wearing a tight dress or skirt,
especially if it's evening wear or a special
occasion, you should always wear a thong.
When it comes to thicker materials like
denim or cotton, panty lines tend to go
unnoticed.

4. Dressing for the wrong season
This is probably one of the most com-
mon fashion mistakes I see on campus.
While it's completely unfair that we get
about 10 cold days out of the year, that is
no excuse to wear UGG boots when it's 80
degrees outside. The worst is when girls
wear UGG boots with miniskirts, as if that
somehow makes sense.
Boots are designed for cold tempera-


tures. The only time you should be wear-
ing UGG boots is at a ski lodge or when it's
below freezing outside.
The same can be said for girls who wear
skimpy clothing when it's freezing outside.
If the rest of your classmates are wearing
winter coats, that's your cue to leave the
-mniskirt althome.

5. Exposed undergarments
This covers a variety of topics, from
black underwear with white pants to bra
straps worn with tube tops an egregious
fashion display if there ever was one.
The bottom line is simple: If the outer
garments aren't offering full coverage of
the undergarments, something needs to be
fixed. Either change your bra to a strap-
less, your black underwear to nude ones
or put something on top that's not quite so
see-through.
Undergarments are meant to comple-
ment your outfit and do so discretely. The
only time lingerie should take center stage
is in the bedroom.

I set out to see if there was any music left
uncorrupted by the ongoing wars between
corpote America and 20-something hip-
sters downloading off or blogs or the "OC"
soundtrack series.
So at 9 a.m. I packed my hemp backpack
full of water and sunscreen and headed to
the Suwannee Springfest, a bluegrass music
festival held every year near Live Oak.
This would be easy, I thought. Compared
with my venture to South by Southwest two
years earlier, which consisted of a road trip
with my friend's band to Austin, Texas, this
would be nothing.
The exact moment I realized how wrong
those assumptions had been was when I
walked up to the grounds of the Spirit of the
Suwannee Music Park.
A barefoot, young man clad in only a tie-
dyed skirt greeted me with a smile.


I looked around; no one else was nearby.
Was he smiling at me? What is he smiling
about? What is this guy's problem?
It seemed to me that Springfest was
more like a twilight zone between the sur-
real Hoggetowne Medieval Faire and the
Femandina Shrimp Festival.
Thoughts began to bud \\hat Iam I
doing here? I'm too inhibited, tlo clean
I'm a journalist, a straight man
I awkwardly made m-r ta\ to the
Meadow Stage where the band greeted
the crowd with a lively, "We lust o't ouut
of jail, so we're happy to be out '
I quickly realized that perhaps .
purity and a lack of corrubhin were
not the characteristics I .
should be looking for, ..
surely not in the fans of
bluegrass.
DuringBlueground
Undergrass'. perfor-
mance at the Meadow
Stage, pine trees shaded
concert attendees, which


included napping hippies suffering from
gender identity and a lack of hygiene habits,
toddlers chasing bubbles and middle-aged
women in J.C. Penney cut-offs (who surprised
me with their incredible ability to balance a
Marlboro and a Solo cup while dancing).
Describing them as eclectic would not
do them justice.
Half of the crowd at the
Amphitheatre Stage for Guy Clark's
show was a sea of straw-brimmed hats
and women combining camouflage and
India-inspired wrap skirts.
Behind them, among the hammocks, I
spo tted a presumably 5-year-old, topless girl
playing with a hula hoop.
Even so, for all the variance in the crowd,
the music did seem pure and simple. The
artists all respected one another and
watched each other's performances with
the fans.
There was a comfortable energy about
the place. To the fast tempo of a banjo,
they sang songs about Danny O'Keefe and
the Grateful Dead, praising the way most


people in this part of the world do about
Jesus Christ.
These people live for music. They use
"jam" and "old-time traditional songs" in the
same sentence.
By the time Amy LaVere, a woman with
a personality almost as contagious as her
voice, began her set, it was starting to rub off
on me.
My nails were dirty. I was seriously con-
sidering going barefoot myself.
LaVere, who's playing at Bonnaroo Music
Festival this summer, talked cordially with the
audience between songs on her upright bass.
As the crowd laughed along to "Pointless
Drinking," I realized how wonderfully out of
tune these artists were with the industry.
They just loved music bluegrass music.
Perhaps that was the common thread
among all the listeners. They all had a love
to jam that unified them, including the girl
with the azure, glittered butterfly wings and
a sombrero with the man in a Georgia T-shirt
that I overhead saying, "I was into whips and
chains, she was into pain."

'Consolers' bulk a buzz-killer


ROBERT HILSON AVENUE WRITER

After the Raconteurs got burned a few years
back for proclaiming to NME that "Broken Boy
Soldiers" would be their answer to Nirvana's
"Nevermind," they apparently decided to dial
down the hype machine.
Not only did "Consolers of the Lonely" drop
a mere seven days after its release announce-
ment, it also validates suspicions that this is
not an actual band as previously claimed, but
in'fact the Detroit chapter of the Jack
White Fan Club.
Admittedly, Brendan Benson and ;-
The Greenhornes boys make for one
hell of a tribute band. They give cre-
dence to the long-presumed notion
that ass-kissing works much more ef-
fectively when done with a high degree
of competence. Racc
The four chur out the best tunes,Consolers
though, when they collectively drop
the hero worship in favor of beer-buddy garage
jams and off-the-cuff rockers.
Stomping opener "Consoler of the Lonely"
sounds almost ad-libbed, combining crackling
White Stripe's style riffs with tossed-off lyrics
that would enlighten only the blind.
White sings, "Haven't seen the sun in
weeks/my skin is getting pale."
Gratuitous even to Captain Obuious, it's at
least a line that provides a refreshing dose of
self-deprecating frivolity.
Soak in these moments because they're few


and far between. The bulk of the album works
only as a lesson in buzz-killing finesse.
Clean cut and Nashville spit shined,
"Consolers" strings together a series of stream-
lined ballads all perfectly tuneful, none par-
ticularly interesting.
Take closing song "Carolina Drama" (spoiler
alert: in a case of mistaken identity, Billy acci-
dentally beats down his old man with a bottle
of milk). It comes off as refined and deeply
earnest, and particularly rewarding for those
still awake to hear the climactic sing-
along.
It's too bad because the guitar
workouts, no matter how spontane-
ously arranged, are truly sounds to
behold.
Two honest-to-goodness collabo-
rations, "Five on the Five" and follow
nteurs up "Attention" kindle visions of a
of the Lonely' sublimely warped Stripes future in
which Jack springs for a bass guitar
and drum lessons for Meg.
The former succeeds as a Weezer-plays-
"Elephant" crossover complete with crunch-
ing six-string assault and an "Oh, Oh"-tinged
chorus.
If it doesn't kill on radio, somebody needs to
axe the Warner Bros.' A&R reps.
Still, in the end, everybody, listener includ-
ed, is here for one guy. The three others simply
play Robin to White's Batman.
They know Jack's always had a thing for


Gnarls Barkley gets darker


ADRIAN RUHI AVENUE W
Rushed to release several
early due to bootlegging, G
Barkley's "The Odd Couple" is
thing but rushed.
Any tinge of positivity or cel
tion on "St. Elsewhere" has d
peared on the duo's sopho-
more set. Instead, it's been
replaced, by introspective
melodrama and paranoia
carefully paired with some
of the most soulful and
eclectic musical backing in
pop's recent memory.
Those looking for a
"Crazy" rehash are in for
a disappointment. Instead,
vocalist Cee-Lo delves deeper
the uneasiness and angst he h
at in Gnarls Barkley's debut,
madman producer Danger IM
settles for slightly left-of-center
neglecting some of the group's
vious sonic shenanigans.
This mood is most evident
"Who's Gonna Save My Soul?"

lad with Cee-Lo crooning in fear of
death.


veeks Although this gloomy mood
.narls pervades through "No Time Soon,"
any- "She Knows" and "A Little Better,"
there is a slight sense of hope on the
ebra- yearning love tune "Blind Mary,"
lisap- and the ode to apathy, "Whatever.'4,
The best, though, is the chaotic
single "Run (I'm a Natural
a ~Disaster)."
Over blaring organs and
frantic drums, Cee-Lo sing-
i S. raps his way through what
S sounds like the bastard
child of Outkast's "Bombs
Gnarls Barkley Over Baghdad," a nod to
'The Odd Couple' his Dungeon Family roots.
Equally. fantastic is the
into moody "Going On," a gospel song
inted punkified by double-time snares.
while "The Odd Couple" is not a "St.
louse Elsewhere" repeat. Those looking
soul, for danceable pop tunes will prob-
pre- ably be disappointed.
Instead, Cee-Lo and Danger
it on Mouse have concocted a timeless
S-a record that takes soul music to a
lbal- whole new universe.

Poor pitching ends with tough loss to UNF in 10 innings


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

After an eight-run loss to
Florida State on Tuesday, UF's
pitchers were supposed to wake
themselves up with an easy win
over North Florida.
Someone forgot to set the
alarm.


Awful pitching early and late
gave the Gators' offense plenty
of catching up to do, and the
Ospreys always seemed to out-
score them by one run in an 11-10
loss in 10 innings. UNF scored
the winning run on a single from
Chad Knight off UF reliever Kyle
Mullaney, the sixth of seven pitch-
ers on the night.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan


was not pleased with his pitching
against UNF (16-12, 7-8 Atlantic
Sun Conference), a team the
Gators should beat handily on
paper.
"Pitching-wise, we were ter-
rible," O'Sullivan said. "Every
time we scored runs, we gave up
runs."
It appears the five games the

finally wearing down the pitching
staff.
"We've got nine healthy arms,"
O'Sullivan said. "We're asking
position players who haven't
pitched since high school to pitch.
We don't have much. We just keep
using the same guys over and-
over."
UF allowed UNF's leadoff hit-
ters to reach base in each of the
first five innings, and the second
batters reached safely in the first
four.
"You've got to get the leadoff
hitter, and we didn't do a good
job getting the second guy,"
O'Sullivan said. "When you don't
get the first" two guys in the in-
ning, you're asking for trouble."
UF threw out every pitcher
it could on Wednesday, starting
usual designated hitter Dustin
Bamberg, and then following
him with Tony Davis and Josh
Edmondson all before three in-
nings passed.
The Gators' last chance to ex-
tend the game ended when Matt
den Dekker flew out to center in
the bottom of the 10th inning. The
game was practically a marathon,
running exactly four hours.
"I like baseball," UNF coach
Dusty Rhodes said. "I don't give a
damn if it takes all night. ... Where
am I going to go? Party after the
game? I'm too old for that."
After trailing all night, No.
19 UF (20-8, 7-2 Southeastern
Conference) finally took the lead
with a three-run sixth inning.
Two singles, a walk and a


double plated two Gators, and
then Cole Figueroa barely scored
from third base on a wild itch
to give UF the go-ahead run. It
was a risky move considering the
ball only went to the edge of the
clay to the UNF catcher's right,
but Figueroa slid in just under
his tag.
"We don't have much. We
just keep using the same
guys over and over."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

"(Assistant coach Craig Bell)
told me just to be real aggres-
sive," Figueroa said. "If I thought
I could make it, just go. At that
point in the ballgame, you've just
got to take a chance, and that's
what I did."
It is the first time this season
that UF has lost three games in
a row.
"You've just got to forget it
and keep playing hard," Figueroa
said.
Clint Franklin (3-2) got the loss
for the Gators while Ty Pryor (3-3)
earned the win for the Ospreys.
Bamberg, who also retained his
duties as the team's designated
hitter, left after 1 1/3 innings and
four earned runs on five hits.
The Gators' biggest offensive
burst came off the bat of center
fielder Matt den Dekker, who hit a
three-run homer in the second in-
ning and also added an RBI-triple
in the fourth.


UF FOOTBALL

Standout freshman hopes to fix Gators' kicking game


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer

Meet the Tim Tebow of kicking.
A modest preacher's son who lifts weights
with linebackers, Caleb Sturgis is cut from the
same cloth as the quarterback, albeit with a
different skill set. Instead of tossing touch-
down passes, he booms 60-yard field goals.
Raised as a Gators fan and home-schooled
until he enrolled at St. Augustine High, the
biggest rival to Tebow's Nease High, Sturgis
has the quiet confidence and manic work ethic
to match the Heisman Trophy winner.


"He's like Tebow-light, I guess," said Dan
Mowrey, Sturgis' kicking coach at SAHS. "As
* good as Timmy is, nobody outworks the guy.
Caleb is from the same mold. He's going to try
harder than everybody else. He wants to be
the best there is, not for notoriety or anything
else, just that internal drive that he has."
Sturgis enrolled at UF in January, and along
with his mythical right leg, he is poised to take
over the Gators' kicking game.

'He's got a bomb'
It's hard to pin down an exact number, but
one thing is for sure Sturgis can kick the ball
a long way.


He says his longest field goal since arriv-
ing in Gainesville is 57 yards, but Mowrey,
who kicked at Florida State,
Si i claims Sturgis hit one from
4 71 yards off of a 1-inch
block in high school.
Another story is that
I Sturgis placed the ball
Sat midfield during a St.
Augustine High spring
Sturgis game, nailed a 60-yarder,
then turned around and
did the same thing in the other direction.
"This sounds ridiculous, but he made it
pretty easy," Mowrey said.


UF coach Urban Meyer was skeptical of the
stories at first but has come around after a few
weeks of spring practice.
"Oh my gosh, does he have a hose," Meyer
said. "He's got a bomb. It sounds the way it's
supposed to when it hits-his foot."
That leg power ranked best in the coun-
try for high schoolers by Rivals.com should
come in pretty handy for Meyer, whose kick-
ers have attempted just one field goal from 50
or more yards in the last two seasons, with the
longest make being a 43-yarder.

the placekicking during that time, tallied
nine misses on field goals from 39 yards
or closer.
"It hurt a little bit, but I also felt their
pain," Sturgis said. "Hetland's balls would
miss by a foot. It also gave me that in-
centive to go in there and change things
around."
At first glance, Sturgis' high school
numbers aren't that impressive, either:
13 for 25 his senior year and 8 of 16 as a
junior. But most of those misses were from
50 yards or longer. Sturgis had his worst
statistical game against Matanzas High
last season, going 0 for 3.
"That sounds bad for field goals, but
his misses were from 62, 60 and 65,"
Mowrey said. "They were all long enough,


which is scary. By pure numbers it doesn't
look good, but when you see the distances
- he's a freak."
Mowrey and Sturgis made a deal that
he wasn't allowed to miss inside of 40
yards. He faltered once,
Son a. 38-yarder that spills
out of Mowrey like a bad
memory.
Football "It was a bad hold, but
it doesn't matter," Mowrey
said. "The ball could be
flat on the ground, but you can make it if
you're as strong as he is. That's the whole
mentality."

The Big Easy
Much of Sturgis' success comes from
his fluid form. Mowrey compares his
pupil's kicking motion to PGA golfer
Ernie Els' swing, but it wasn't always so

effortless.
The first time he came to a football prac-
tice, before the 2005 season, St. Augustine's
kicker had just quit and the Yellow Jackets
were desperate for a replacement. Mowrey
had just promised his wife that he would
stop coaching to focus on his daughters
and law firm, but then Sturgis showed up.
"He took four or five funny little steps
and kicked the ball off the ground from
40 yards, and it went really high and far,"
Mowrey said. "I remember specifically go-
ing home that day and saying, 'Babe, I'm
locked in for three more years.'"
It didn't take long for Sturgis to earn a
varsity locker or a starting role, but he still
wasn't focused on the sport.
Sturgis started as a soccer player, fol-
.lowing the legacy of older siblings Lydia,
Luke and Nathan, all of whom advanced
to the college level in the sport. Nathan is
on the U.S. under-23 team that qualified
for the 2008 Summer Olympics, and he
also plays for Real Salt Lake of the MLS.
Sturgis tried out for the football team
"just to get a ring," as he says.
He missed practices throughout the
season for soccer, even skipping a football
game, but in the end, he got his state cham-
pionship ring as the Yellow Jackets beat
Sarasota Booker High in the 3-A finals.
Sturgis made a 49-yard field goal and hit
the ensuing kickoff through the uprights.
"That's when I decided to start work-
ing on football," he said. "I didn't take it
seriously until my junior year."
Soon, the 5-foot-10, 182-pounder was
climbing over locked fences to kick on the
school field and outworking bigger play-
ers in the weight room.
Head coach Joey Wiles estimated that
his team won the field position battle 95
percent of the time with Sturgis kicking.
On the first kickoff of his senior year,
Sturgis booted the ball over the end zone
and onto the second lane of the track sur-
rounding the field, and it's those moments
that drive Wiles to compare Sturgis to cur-
rent NFL kicker Sebastian Janikowski.
"If he continues to do the things that
got him there, and I don't know why he
wouldn't, I can't see how he wouldn't be
kicking in the NFL one day," Wiles said.
"He can be as good as- there has ever
been."
Before he can start thinking about the
professional level, Sturgis has to earn the
starting job at UF. He's locked in competi-
tion with Jonathan Phillips for the spot,
but it's a safe bet that Sturgis will at least
make an impact in the field position game
this season along with high schooFleam-
mate and kick returned Brandon James.
"If he can knock the ball out of the end
zone on kickoffs, that's worth two scholar-
ships," Meyer said.
Sturgis said he feels like he's one kick
away from starting, but Mowrey puts it in
different terms.
"Let me think of how to say this with-
out being pompous," he said. "I Nould
put up most all of my savings to bet that
he will be starting the first game."
