Med school dean controversy continues


Admitted student didn't take MCAT


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org
A UF official is calling for a review of
the College of Medicine's dean's decision to
admit a student over the objections of the
selections committee and after he reportedly
had not taken the standardized medical ad-
missions examination.
The 'Gainesville Sun reported Thursday


the student in question, Benjamin
Mendelsohn, had not taken the Medical
College Admissions Test.
In an interview with the Alligator on April
3, the college's dean, Dr. Bruce Kone, said he
couldn't say whether Mendelsohn had taken
the MCAT because admissions records are
kept private. But Kone said in any incoming
class in his college, nearly 10 percent of the
students have not taken the exam.
Dr. Lewis Baxter, a UF psychiatry and


neuroscience professor, said an independent
panel should investigate Kone's actions in
admitting Mendelsohn.
Baxter wrote an e-mail to UF President
Bernie Machen on Tuesday asking him to
initiate a review by
U F UF's Faculty Senate.
Administration In a phone in-
terview Thursday,
Machen said he wouldn't consider such a
move. Machen said he's satisfied with the
student's qualifications as described to him
by Kone.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said an


independent review of a student's admis-
sion has never been done, and both Sikes and
Kone saidthe student is qualified.
However, an e-mail from Kone to mem-
bers of Machen's staff including Sikes
- sent after an April 4 meeting to discuss
the admission, indicates Kone might feel he
doesn't have administrative support.
In his e-mail, Kone wrote that no one at
the meeting "had the courtesy or guts to even
look me in the eye."
"I don't know if it was cowardice, a lack
of compassion, or what, but it is symptomatic

Crist's rating high


even at record low


By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Even at record lows, Gov.
Charlie Crist's approval rating is
still respectably high.
Crist's job performance as
governor has the approval of 59
percent of Floridians, according
to a poll released Thursday by
the Quinnipiac University Polling
Institute in Connecticut.
The poll surveyed 1,215
Floridian voters and had a 2.8 per-
cent margin of error.
Crist's approval rating is the
lowest it has been since he took of-
fice in January 2007. That February,
he had an approval rating of 69
percent, and it topped out in July
2007 at 73 percent, according to
polls by the same institute.
But 59 percent is far from bad,
said Peter Brown, assistant direc-
tor of the polling institute.
"Most governors would die for
his numbers," Brown said.
Michael Martinez, a UF politi-
cal science associate professor, said
he was surprised Crist's numbers
weren't lower.
The decrease probably came
from the end of Crist's honeymoon
period and increasing worries
about Florida's economy, Martinez


The same poll found 62 percent
of Floridians to be dissatisfied
with "the way things are going in
Florida today," up from 52 percent
when the poll was last taken in
October.
Only 5 percent said they were
"very satisfied."
That frustration gets taken out
on the governor, Martinez said.
CBut, he said,
ta. here's no rea-
io o son for Crist to
worry unless his
approval rating
drops closer to
50 percent.
"He used to
crist be in really good
shape," Martinez said. "Now he's
in good shape.",
Ben Grove, chairman of UF
College Republicans, said his
opinion of Crist hasn't changed
since he voted for the governor.
Though he 'disagrees with
Crist on some issues, Grove said
he and other members of College
Republicans feel he has kept his
campaign promises to lower taxes
and make the government more
accountable. "Yes, it was a little
bit of a drop," Grove said of the

UF PROJECTS

Hough Hall to claim carpooler parking spaces


By STEPHANIE GRANADA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Hundreds of carpoolers will be displaced
in August when a new building breaks ground
in the parking lot east of Criser Hall.
UF's Parking and Transportation
Committee met Tuesday to discuss possible
alternatives for the 118 parking spaces that
will be lost when Hough Hall, a graduate
studies building for the school of business, is
completed.
"You don't just lose a parking lot without
it impacting someone," said Robert Miller,
a member of the committee who served as
chairperson at Tuesday's meeting. "We will
have to weigh the pros and cons with the vice
president."
The committee voted 5-1 in favor of the
proposal to transfer carpool spots from east
of Criser Hall to the parking areas in front of


Fletcher and Sledd halls, a location currently
reserved for students. It will submit the plan
to Ed Poppel, UF's vice president of business
affairs.
Construction for the 59,000-square-foot
building will begin in August.
William R. Hough Hall is anticipated to be
completed in winter 2009 and will be used as
of spring 2010, said Howie Ferguson, the proj-
ect manager for the building.
The facility will serve to ease some over-
crowding in the business school and attract
future students.
"This is a recruiting tool," Fergurson said.
"UF is way behind in that category."
Sonia Hodges, who works at Student
Financial Services in Peabody Hall, said
the new building's infringement on park-
ing would create an inconvenience for her.
Hodges bought a carpool decal about a year
ago to park next to her building.


In the past, she had an Orange decal for
faculty and staff parking, but she often found
herself with no available spots.
"You don't just lose a parking lot
without it impacting someone."
Robert Miller
Parking and Transportation Committee

Under the parking proposal, zones desig-
nated for faculty and staff decals in Hough's
location will also be reduced, but there will
more spots added at other locations on cam-
pus to compensate, said Scott Fox, director of
UF's Transportation and Parking Services.
Fox added that a new parking garage is
scheduled to open on Gale Lemerand Drive
in a little over a year. Parking for people with
Orange, Red 3 and Red 1 parking decals will
be rearranged in the meantime.


Red 1 and Red 3 parking decals are sold to
students who live on campus or in fraternities
or sororities. Red 1 is designated for students
who have completed at least 50 credit hours,
while Red 3 decals are sold to students with 49
credit hours or less.
Miller proposed moving student park-
ing to the areas surrounding the Southwest
Recreation Center temporarily because
he said many students do not drive their
cars often during the week, and proxim-
ity to their residences wouldn't be an issue.
The committee will also review a proposal
to rearrange parking to make way for a new
chemistry building, which is planned to be
built in the parking lot next to Keene-Flint
Hall.
"The reality is over time we will see less
and less parking in that area," Miller said. "We
can build on-the outskirts, but core academics
buildings will be on campus."

UF to host Read-A-Thon


* WEEKLONG EVENT TO FEATURE
AN EDIBLE BOOK CONTEST.

By JAMI BAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

There is only one place that choco-
late wafers and snow peas go together
- the Edible Book Contest, where
this concoction is known as "War and
Peas."
'The George A. Smathers Libraries
will hold an edible book contest
Wednesday as part of its sixth an-
nual Read-A-Thon on the Plaza of the
Americas.
The Read-A-Thon is held as part
of National Library Week, which runs
Monday through Thursday.
"My favorite event they did last year
was the Edible Book Contest," said UF
junior Josh Steinberg.
"Some of them were weird food
combinations but still fun to look at
during a study break."
Barbara Hood, chairwoman of the
Read-A-Thon committee, said the audi-
ence would judge the concoctions this
year instead of a panel of judges.
"Prizes will be given for most
creative, least edible, best overall fic-
tion, best overall non-fiction and best
children's book," Hood said.
The winners will be announced,
and their creations will be eaten at 11:
45 a.m.
Winners will receive a gift certificate
and a cookbook.
"The point of celebrating National
Library Week is so we can celebrate


reading for fun in an event aside from
school," Hood said.
Each day of the week has a theme,
and students, faculty and the pub-
lic will have opportunities to read a
10-15 minute excerpt from a book of
their choice that fits the day's specific
theme.
"Libraries around the country
all do different things. We just
try to make it fun, casual and
free flowing."
Barbara Hood
Read-A-Thon committee chairwoman


"Chris Machen always reads for
us," Hood said of UF President Bernie
Machen's wife. "She likes to read cow-
boy poetry."
Each day will offer free food from
'various sponsors.
- "Libraries around the country all
do different things," Hood said. "We
just try to make it fun, casual and free
flowing."

The Read-A-Thon will be held
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. from
Monday to Thursday on the
Plaza of the Americas.

Gainesville Police make five prostitution arrests


* LOCAL WOMEN OFFERED
SEX TO UNDERCOVER COP.

By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

Five local women were arrested
Thursday morning for offering sex
to an undercover police officer.
The women, who range in age
from 23 to 49 years old, were arrest-


ed between 5:22 a.m. and 7:33 a.m.,
according to their Gainesville Police
Department arrest reports.
GPD Sgt. Robert Bartley, who
was a part of the operation, said
police were responding to neighbor-
hood complaints about prostitution.
According to the women's ar-
rest reports, they solicited the same
officer on Southwest Fifth Avenue,
Southwest Second Terrace and
South Main Street.


Bartley said the officer didn't co-
erce the women but simply drove by
and was flagged down.
According to their arrest reports,
four of the women offered to per-
Sform oral sex on the officer for $20,
and the other offered sexual inter-
course for the same price.
All five denied they were in-
volved in prostitution once they
were read their rights, according to
the reports.


Weasenforth


One woman,
Ida Brenanette
Miller, 42, initial-
ly gave officers
a fake name and
had two active
warrants in
Alachua County
for cocaine and


narcotic equipment possession, her
arrest report stated.
Police found a glass crack pipe in


the jacket of one of the other women,
Tammie L. Weasenforth, 49, during
a search, according to the report.
GPD spokeswoman Summer
Hallett said prostitution is a problem
local police deal with regularly.
"Prostitution is a problem in
Gainesville because most of it is fu-
eled by a drug habit," Hallett said.
"They can turn a trick and make
a couple dollars and get their next
fix."

Endoioi;a'
This week it seems that along with the pollen and spring,
protesting is also in the air. Whether it's the anti-war protes-
tors on the corer of 13th Street and University Avenue, the
hunger strikers staking it out in front of Bernie's office or the
maniacs trying to extinguish the Olympic torch, it's hard to
keep up with who's mad at who for what these days. So, here
at Darts & Laurels headquarters, we'll keep it simple for you
this week and let you know what should really be pissing
you off. Get your signs ready and practice your angry chants
for this week's edition of...



Darts & Laurels
A you-didn't-just-bum-the-bridge-you-blew-it-up
DART goes to Dean Bruce Kone down at the College of
Medicine. His Friday e-mail to UF President Bernie Machen's
staff about his treatment due to the admissions scandal he
admitted a politically connected applicant who didn't take
the MCAT in case you missed it reveals an arrogant, self-
entitled rant. In addition to calling Gainesville a small town
with "small minds," he went on to say the UF was "stuck in
mediocrity" because of its leadership. Unless he has a good
excuse for his asinine comments, we hope it's the beginning
of his downfall. Maybe if he's gone, we can get out of his
so-called "mediocrity." But then again, since he considers a
student who never even took the MCAT to be "exceptional,"
we're guessing his gauge of excellence is twisted anyway.
Speaking of lacking qualifications, we dole out a don't-
your-constituents-at-least-deserve-a-decent-explanation
DART to student Sen. Sheldon Nagesh. While he did resign
due to the backlash from his numerous addresses, saving us
all the trouble of having to hear the Orange and Blue Party's
complaints, he definitely copped out. His lame explanation
that attacks against him prevented him from providing an
"effective contribution" makes us more than happy to see
him go.
A is-this-what-bored-cheerleaders-do-in-the-off-sea-
son? DART goes to the Lakeland teenagers who videotaped
the beating of a 16-year-old girl they held against her will.
Not only was the attack brutal, but the less-than-brilliant
girls were taping it to post it on YouTube. We don't know
what's more disturbing, watching the tape or hearing it
repeat on the cable news networks as if it were the most im-
portant thing in global events. Hate to break it to you, CNN,
but this happens at high schools across inner-city America
every day.
Next up, an are-you-just-looking-to-collect-stories-for-
your-grandchildren-before-you-graduate? DART goes to
members of Students for a Democratic Society who are
participating in a hunger strike until Machen has lunch with
them to discuss the investment of UF's endowment. Though
it was fun to humor them with their melodramatic last veg-
etarian meal (it doesn't get more cliche than that), we don't
really think the only option they have is to deny themselves
food and we don't think eating fruit really counts as a
hunger strike anyway. And after hearing the controversial
accounts of Iraq Veterans Against the War this week, we're
wondering why their outrage isn't directed somewhere else.
Our only well-that-kind-of-makes-up-for-cutting-

Florida Senate. A committee unanimously approved a bill
that could reduce book costs for college students by making
schools confirm that required new editions are actually dif-'
ferent from earlier editions. The bill also requires that book
titles be posted online at least 30 days before a class begins
so students have options to buy books from multiple sources
to save money.

A farewell poem to
I may never again live in an all-college town
I'm leaving my dear Gainesville with a half-smile,
half-frown
Because for all the reasons I say I'm more than ready to
leave
There are an equal number of things lost I might actually
grieve
Gainesville is so supportive of creative expression
It's here graffiti art can leave a somewhat lasting impres-
sion
If you feel the urge to say "I love you" in the middle of
the night
Where else can you paint your feelings on a wall and be
sure it's said right?
And what will I ever do without Hippodrome plays?
No other local theatre experience could entertain the
same way
Getting pizza at Satchel's is such a worthwhile en-
deavor
I'll not love a pie half as much if it doesn't take forever
What if the place I move has never heard of bubble tea?
If I'm forced to find a new favorite drink, what would
it be?
And Veena, the woman who threads my eyebrows at
the mall
Will she fly across the country if I give her a call?
What if my new city doesn't have three Moe's?
If I want a burrito and queso, how far must I go?
There are a few fun activities I know I'll yearn for when
I go
Like will I never perform another perverted improve
show?
Only here I can see sporting events one after another


a college town
My weekend plans were once a
dream come true for my brother
If I'm being honest I'll confess
that I don't even like football
But I love living in a town that
can say we've won it all
Carly Hallam I like how here transportation is
a form of exercise
letters@alligator.org a form of exercise
Made possible by Gainesville's
condensed, cozy size
People are always scooting, biking, walking or running
The number of students without cars is impressive but
stunning
I've sadly become accustomed to getting things for free
When I have to pay to ride a bus, do you know how
angry I'll be?
What if I end up rooming with people that aren't well
under 30?
Will my house still be so loud and effortlessly dirty?
And it's fun to see classmates in every store, deli, or bar
If you want to talk to a Gator you don't have to look far
Though I'm sad to have to leave where I call home be-
hind
It'll help others and me to keep this one thing in mind
You can leave tomorrow for apparently anywhere
And when you look around you'll find The Gator
Nation is there
Eating pizza, drinking a beer and talking about the
game
And while you're new town is so different, it's so much
the same

Letters to the Editor
Time to make online voting a reality
Seven years of Student Government de-
bate, committees and ballot initiatives, and
now a lawsuit and yet UF cannot seem to
end the dispute over online voting. This is a
good example of why student governments
aren't taken seriously issues are recycled
every semester and never fully resolved.
Another committee won't bring to light
anything new that hasn't been discussed


in previous SG committees on the issue: 1)
Online voting works best when there is a
paper trail on which to conduct recounts.
2) The concern over voter coercion is over-
blown when you consider the hyper-impor-
tance of the "I Voted" stickers for members
of certain UF social organizations.
After all, there is no talk of coercion re-
garding course registration, which functions
much the same way as online voting would.


3) Since 2001 online voting or computerized
voting has become more commonplace at
the university level, and the concerns about
being able to secure the data have largely
been resolved by technological advance-
ment.
When this debate first got started at UF
in summer 2001, I was part of a small group
of skeptics. Computerized voting has since
been tried several times without major prob-

lems except getting the equipment ready on
time.
The time for debate is really over. Given
the success of online voting at other schools,
including Florida State University, there re-
ally are no more excuses. Cut the red tape,
end this debate, and bring online voting to
UF.

LOCAL

Student organization tackles local hunger issue


By WHITNEY HOLTZMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF senior Kendra Levine is trying to make
sure hunger in Gainesville is stuffed for good.
The food and resource economics senior is
president of the Campus Kitchens Task Force,
an organization that collects leftover food
from local restaurants' kitchens and packages
it into individual meals to be sent to social ser-
vice agencies and served to local low-income
groups.
The organization will be holding a battle of
the bands fundraiser Saturday at 8 p.m. at the
Atlantic nightclub that will feature five bands.
"All of the bands are fantastic, and the


money that is made aids Campus Kitchens
in its mission of community hunger relief and
directly benefits many in need," Levine said.
She said she hopes to raise $1,200, which
will go toward buying kitchen supplies, to-go
containers, nutrition education materials and
extra food.
The organization operates out of the kitch-
en at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research
School but hopes to ultimately work from
UF's Racquet Club Dining Center or Shands
atUF.
Campus Kitchens is a national project that
is currently underway at one high school and
11 colleges across the country.
Levine began the initiative to bring the

charity to UF's campus after interning at the
organization's national office, she said.
Shail Ramcharan, program manager for
Partners for a Productive Community, which
provides social services.to at-risk communi-


ties, teamed up with Campus Kitchens in
2007.
Ramcharan said some residents might
not be eating the adequate number of meals
per day if it was not for the help of Campus
Kitchens.
Pamela McMahon, food science and hu-
man nutrition professor and adviser for the
organization, said she wanted to be involved
with the cause because she teaches nutrition
classes and is aware of local hunger issues.
"At the UF level, the Campus Kitchens
leadership team has identified food donors,
secured a kitchen to prepare the food and
is delivering to families in need," McMahon
said.

Kone criticized for not rehiring associate dean

of why this University is stuck in medioc-
rity," he wrote.
Machen said he didn't attend the
meeting, and those who did described it
differently.
"I think the e-mail he sent doesn't rep-
resent what really happened there, to tell
you the truth," Machen said. He said Kone
has never complained to him about his
administration.
Kone may have issues with Machen's
office, but his decisions aren't faring well
in others' eyes either.
Kone chose not to rehire Dr. Robert
Watson, the medical school's former se-
nior associate dean for educational affairs,
who was set to retire Dec. 31, 2007 after
serving 17 years in his dean position.
Watson was enrolled in the Deferred
Retirement Option Program, which allows
state employees to gather retirement ben-
efits up to five years before they officially
leave.
Watson said Friday that he had an
.agreement with former medical school
Dean Dr. Craig Tisher that he would be
rehired one month after his retirement.


Tisher verified on Friday that this agree-
ment was reached.
However, Kone did not honor the
agreement after he previously asked
Watson to stay on through June 30, accord-
ing to a reappointment letter in Watson's
personnel file.
"I just didn't see how I person-
ally fit into that structure."
Dr. Lynn Romrell
former associate dean of UF's Office
of Medical Education

Kyle Cavanaugh, UF vice president of
human resources, said Kone had the right
to not rehire Watson because an employee
separates from the university once he
completes the Deferred Retirement Option
Program. A retired employee should have
to go through the normal application pro-
cess to be rehired, Cavanaugh said.
Tisher said Watson was supposed to
remain the Jules B. Chapman professor, a
$4 million professorship created by Annie
Lou Chapman, a 94-year-old medical
school donor.
Sikes said UF couldn't release docu-
ments relating to the professorship due to


confidentiality agreements. Chapman and
her lawyer declined to comment.
The Sun reported Thursday that a
Jan. 30 letter from Chapman's lawyer to
Machen and Paul Robell, head of the UF
Foundation, which handles UF's endow-
ments, expresses Chapman's unhappiness
with Kone's decision to not rehire Watson.
Shortly after Watson left, Dr. Lynn
Romrell, former associate dean of UF's
Office of Medical Education and a close
colleague of Watson's, resigned. Romrell,
who was also an anatomy professor and
had been at UF for 33 years, is now an as-
sociate dean in FSU's medical school.
In a Monday interview, he said he re-
signed as UF's associate dean in January
after he'learned that his office would be
restructured and because he felt disre-
spected by members of Kone's staff.
A January e-mail from Kone to College
of Medicine faculty announces a series of
administrative changes, including "the
formation of a new Office of Medical
Education."
"I just didn't see how I personally fit
into that structure," Romrell said.
Sikes said UF had no comment.
Romrell said he thinks his resignation
speaks for itself.

According to the poll, 57
percent of Democrats and
60 percent of Independents

"If Democrats are ap-

Grove said.
With Crist's approval

a drop was probably inevi-

"When a politician starts

Focus on Phallus


UF student one of few to


study alligator genitalia


By YUDISLAIDY FERNANDEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
yfernandez@alligator.org

The other day, Ketan Mathavan
was walking on campus with his
research mentor. He saw the usual
- a few students, some trees, a
couple of birds. Then he spotted
a four-foot-long dead log on the
grass.
He told his mentor, "That looks
like an alligator phallus."
His mentor's response: "You've
been in the lab too long."
Mathavan, who is part of a
UF research team that studies the
American alligator, was designated
one part for the study: the alligator
phallus.
He is the first student at UF to
study the male alligator's genitalia
in such depth.
The data Mathavan collects help
scientists learn more about the link
between environmental toxins and
birth defects.
He uses words like "histology"
and "cellular morphology" in ev-
eryday conversation, which mean
nothing to most of his friends.
Now, the scientist-in-the-mak-
ing eagerly shares with others his
fascination for this research proj-
ect. He can talk about the alligator
phallus for hours.
But it wasn't always that way
for Mathavan.
He confessed that at first he felt
embarrassed about describing his
area of research to others.
"But now I take a lot of pride
into what I do," he said. "People
sometimes bring it up as a joke, but
I don't get mad."
Indeed, his friends often joke
with Mathavan about his unique
area of expertise.
"They take some cracks on me,
like here is the penis guy," he said.
This was the first time after
several interviews that he used the
word penis Mathavan prefers to
call it the phallus.


Student Success
The 20-year-old always knew he
wanted to research. He wondered
how and why things happened,
and he knew scientific research
could deliver answers.
But Mathavan never expected
he would become the first student
at UF to study the alligator's phal-
lus in such depth that his collected
data will be included in research
papers.
Professor Louis Guillette, head
of the alligator research team at
UF, said few papers exist about the
alligator's phallus structure.
"Only basic papers [were] writ-
ten in the 1930s, but nothing like
the descriptions Ketan has been
able to do," Guillette said.
Guillette's earlier research
revealed that lake contaminants
led to birth defects in the male
alligator's sexual organ. Since the
alligator and human reproductive
systems are very similar, Guillette's
team of undergraduate and gradu-
ate students use alligators to study
whether genital abnormalities
among young boys are caused by
pollutants in the environment.
Walking into Mathavan's pea-
nut-sized lab room, located on
the fifth floor of Bartram Hall, is
a claustrophobic experience. But
labeled bottles, beakers and flasks,
all perfectly aligned, are a quick
distraction. Mathavan handles his
slides and equipment with the
same delicacy a mother holds a
newborn.
"The information I am collecting
right now sets the baseline for what
is normal in the phallus," he said.
"It can be used to compare it to the
abnormal phalluses' physiology."

The Findings
About 16 years ago, a group
of scientists, including professor
Guillette, discovered that lake con-
taminants led to birth defects in the
alligator's sexual organ.
Male alligators, like human

men, are supposed to produce
testosterone. The female alligators
should produce estrogen.
However, the abnormal al-
ligators that have been found in
contaminated lakes produce both
estrogen and testosterone. This
causes an unusual development,
in which baby alligators' reproduc-
tive systems don't know whether
to grow a clitoris or
a penis. Some end up alliga
growing a penis, but For an audio
one that's too small ligator resear
for reproductive use. www.alligator.ori
Part of the investiga-
tion is .to find the origin of these
birth defects.
Guillette said alligators are used
as models because of the similari-
ties between the human and alliga-
tor reproductive systems.
So Guillette's findings have
not only raised concerns about the
health of Florida's wetlands but
about human health.
Learning more about why these
changes have occurred in alliga-
tors can help scientists find out if
genital abnormalities among infant
boys are related to environmental
contaminants, Guillette said.

The Alligator Team
Originally, Mathavan's first as-
signment was to reconstruct the
alligator's ovary structure.
His program mentor, Brandon
Moore, decided it would be better
to start him off with a simpler struc-
ture the phallus. But the research
team has discovered a complexity
in the phallus structure they did
not expect, explained Moore, a
graduate student in zoology.
Like some of his peers in the


program, Guillette said Mathavan
walked in not knowing much
about alligator research, so when
he discovered something new he
experienced the "aha!" moment.
"Ketan has shown an infectious
enthusiasm for learning and doing
things that would lead to discov-
ery," Guillette said.
It is rare in the science field

The UF-Howard Hughes Group
Advantaged Training of Research
Program, funded with a $1 million-
award from the Howard Hughes
Medical Institute, pairs under-
graduates with graduate students,
giving them the chance to experi-
ence first-hand what it means to be
a scientist.
"Research has. completely
changed my life," Mathavan said.
"Everything about research is
great: the social aspect, the intel-
lectual aspect."
He was paired with Moore, 37,
who primarily studies ovary de-
velopment in alligators. Moore has
guided Mathavan on how to work
with phallus tissues.

Research Process
Some months back, a. group of
about eight, including Mathavan
and Moore, drove an airboat to
Lake Woodruff National Wildlife
Refuge at night. A flashlight was
used to spot the kings of the
swamp, then they were wrestled
by the neck and their mouths were
rubber-banded.


Mathavan explained the alliga-
tors don't put up a long fight be-
cause they are cold-blooded. After
being out of the water for a bit, they
need the sun to break down the
lactic acid that builds in their body.
At night, the breakdown process
takes longer, so the alligators tire
quicker.
Their immobilization helps the
scientists get blood samples, take
measurements and identify their
sex the most difficult task. The
female and male alligators' genita-
lia look incredibly similar. The only
difference? The female's clitoris
is smaller and pinkish, while the
male's phallus is slightly larger and
purplish.
Once in the lab, technicians
put the alligators to sleep with an
injection and approved graduate
students dissect them. The young
researcher is then handed the phal-
lus tissue.
First, he dries out the tissue in
alcohol and then dips it in wax,
freezing it from the inside out.
The wax block is then sliced into
ultra-thin sections that are placed
on glass slides for microscopic ex-
amination. Under the microscope,
the 3-D slides look like a map with
aqua and purple lines. The slides
serve as hard copy of his results
because they show the phallus's
inner structure.
Mathavan views the slides with
the same pride most guys express
staring at their car after a good wax.
When he removed his glasses to
analyze the cell and tissue patterns
through the lenses, his eyes lit up.
"I feel a strong desire to finish
my project," he said. "It's become
my own."

IN BRIEF
Miami bans downtown panhandling
MIAMI (AP) City commissioners
voted unanimously Thursday to ban pan-
handling in downtown, part of an effort to
revitalize the city and compete with other
major metropolises for tourists and busi-
ness dollars.
The proposal would affect only a small
section of the city but if successful would
likely be expanded to the arts district to
the north and to other nearby sections of
the city.
The area has several unfinished condo
projects and city leaders want to ensure the
city draws and keep new residents, espe-


cially during the housing crisis.
Sanchez also chairs the city's Downtown
Development Authority, which backed the
proposal.
Virginia Tech pays victims' families
ROANOKE, Va. (AP) Most families
of victims of the mass shootings at Virginia
Tech have agreed to an $11 million state set-
tlement that will compensate families who
lost loved ones, pay survivors' medical
costs and avoid a court battle over whether
anyone besides the gunman was to blame.
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine said Thursday a
"substantial majority" of families of victims


of the Virginia Tech shootings agreed to
the settlement.Peter Grenier and Douglas
Fierberg, who represent 21 families, said
the settlement was worth more than $11
million, but neither they nor the governor
would discuss its terms until final papers
are drawn in a few days.
Dalai Lama visits U.S.
SEATTLE (AP) The Dalai Lama ar-
rived in the United States on Thursday
for the first time since the recent turmoil in
Tibet, serenaded by fellow Tibetans as he
prepared to anchor an ambitious confer-
ence on compassion.


The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader came
here a day after demonstrators disrupted
the Olympic torch run in San Francisco in a
protest of China's treatment of his people.
The Dalai Lama will be attending a five-
day conference that begins Friday.
With the Dalai Lama in town, some
community leaders said they expected
counter-demonstrations from pro-China
groups.
But all was peaceful when he arrived at
a downtown hotel Thursday, telling local
Tibetans who sang to him that he supports
nonviolent demonstrations but was sad-
dened by the protests in San Francisco.

Defense ready for another opportunity to prove itself

* THE ORANGE AND BLUE GAME
IS SATURDAY AT 1 P.M.

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Duke Lemmens still has a lump in
the back of his throat that he has to keep
swallowing.
The memories even keep the sopho-
more defensive end up at night some-
times.
Watching last season's tape doesn't
sit well with any member of the UF
defense. The unit ranked dead last in
the Southeastern Conference in passing
yards a game at 258.5 yards a game, al-
most 20 yards more than the next-to-last
team.
Even when the run defense was stout
- allowing just 3 yards a carry the
Gators couldn't get any pressure on
the quarterback and were burned in the
passing game.
"I watched that national champion-
ship game when I was a senior in high
school," Lemmens said. "I knew the
whole team knew it we definitely took
a step back. The talent was there; it was
just the maturity and the confidence of


the defense. This year, we're not letting
ourselves make those excuses. We're go-
ing to restore what Gator defense is all
about."
Well, the only way to erase those
memories and let Lemmens finally get
a good night of sleep is to get back out
there. That's exactly what the Gators'
defense will do Saturday at the Orange
and Blue scrimmage. But one full year
still hasn't passed, and most members of
the starting defense still can't crack open
a cold Natural Light.
As the freshmen become sophomores
and the sophomores become juniors,
there's reason to expect improvement.
If anything, it at least helps to practice
against UF's talented offense.
"On Saturday, we're going to show
the SEC what kind of defense we have,"
said defensive lineman Carlos Dunlap,
who has earned the praise of Urban
Meyer this spring. "The defense (last
year) didn't have pressure, so we made
our DBs look bad. The defense we've
got now we're trying to model it after
the national championship defense. The
whole D-line's working hard to get it
back like it was."

I'm not one of those people who

In fact, I've spent one night too
many defending you to the masses

The moment I saw you, I knew
you would play in the NBA. You
have what it takes. It just saddens
me to see you leave when you're
still just a question, where one
more year could change every-
thing.
Stay in Gainesville and we can
toss aside the word 'good' all to-

No. 3 Gators prepare for title run


BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Two weeks after losing the Southeastern
Conference Championship to Georgia, the UF
gymnastics team will take the floor Saturday
looking to qualify for the NCAA Championships
and get another crack at the Bulldogs.
The team, whose goal all year has been to
win the national championship, is more moti-
vated than ever to attain it after its second loss to
Georgia this season by .025.
"I feel like it makes you stronger losing by
such a small margin, because knowing that it
was so cose and the smallest little things could
make the difference makes you push that much
harder to get it at the next competition," sopho-
more Melanie Sinclair said.
While No. 3UF (12-3-1, 4-2 SEC) is more in-
spired after the disheartening defeat, it had more
work to do in the gym before competing again
Saturday in the Southeast Region Championship
in Gainesville.
The loss didn't have a negative affect on the


Gators' attitude in practice. It had them work-
ing harder to prove themselves, and the extra
effort showed in the first practice after the SEC
Championships.
"Everyone came in with a great attitude and
ready to work harder to put forth all the effort
needed to be the best," Sinclair said.
In the practices, the Gators needed to get
out the small kinks that pre-
vented them from repeating
as SEC champs.
Junior Corey Hartung
Gymnastics said the team has been doing
basically the same routine
it has done all year, except
they have been approaching practices different
mentally.
"We have been motivating ourselveswith
positive thoughts and positive talks," Hartung
said. "We are concentrating on every turn more
and not just going through the motions but re-
ally thinking about every little thing."
For coach Rhonda Faehn, it was important to

UF hopes turnaround continues against Arkansas


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer
khyppolite@alligator.org

After five consecutive losses, the
sky was looking awfully dose to the
ground if you were a fan of the No.
25 Gators.
Three wins in four days can do
wonders for your depth perception,
as the sky is, in fact, not falling.
"We kind of hit a rough skid there
and we had to pick it up this week,"
third baseman Jon Townsend said.
"We've still got a long way to go and
a tough weekend ahead of us. We've
got to keep our heads up."


UF's pitching staff was thrashed
during the skid, allowing an average
of 8.8 runs per game.
Those struggles appear to be a
distant memory after Kyle Mullaney
looked like the ace he always in-
tended to be, throwing six innings in
Tuesday's win over North Florida.
Stephen Locke and Travis Lawler
threw three and 3 2/3 innings, re-
spectively, in Wednesday's victory,
easing the strain on the bullpen.
With the pitching staff not being
overextended in midweek games
for the first time in a few weeks,
coach Kevin O'Sullivan is relieved
to have fresh arms .entering this


weekend's three-game series against
Arkansas (17-14, 3-8 Southeastern
Conference).
O'Sullivan has spent large por-
tions of the season creating small
goals for his pitchers in an attempt
to relieve the pressure on players
who may attempt to do too much.
"We're trying to use it as a posi-
tive," he said. "We're saying, 'All
you have to do is give us six outs,' or
'All you have to do is give us three
outs tonight.' We're trying to use
it as a positive, because it is what
it is."
The Gators (23-10, 8-4 SEC) have
responded in their last three games,


allowing just seven runs.
"We've been grinding it out
and getting wins," shortstop Cole
Figueroa said.
"That's what
good teams do,
they grind out
wins even when
they're not play-
ing their best
baseball. It's
kind of what our
den Dekker pitching staff
needed, getting some confidence
back in the bullpen."
For the moment, UF is staying
focused on an Arkansas team it


considers to be as dangerous as any
other in the conference.
"They're the type of team that
will sneak up on in the SEC,"
Townsend said. "You can't ove ook
anyone when you're playing in this
league."

MCARTHUR PRACTICES: First base-
man Brandon McArthur began
his comeback from a torn anterior
cruciate ligament Thursday. The se-
nior wore a brace on his ngh+l~Iee,
which he injured last week against
North Florida. McArthur fielded
ground balls with Clayton Pisani,
who is starting in his place.

Dynamic offense leads way as Gators head to Athens


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

The Gators' high-powered offense is prov-
ing that pitching isn't the only thing that wins
games.
No. 3 UF (43-2, 15-1 Southeastern
Conference) heads into this weekend's series
with No. 17 Georgia (35-13, 8-6 SEC) outscor-
ing opponents 259-49 on the season.
While the home runs draw most of the
attention, the Gators' version of Murderer's
Row starts right at the top of the order with
UF's career batting average leader.
"When I'm up to bat, they're not really wor-
ried about me," said junior Kim Waleszonia,


who has hit leadoff for over two years now.
"They're worried about what's below me."
Through 45 games, Waleszonia has used
that protection to match the .368 batting av-
erage the second-highest mark in school
history for a single season she posted as a
sophomore. She said that hitting at the. top of
a high-scoring offense has provided her with
the opportunity to see more pitches to hit.
An increase in pitches to hit has translated
to more times on base and more opportunities
to score for Waleszonia.
The high-energy leadoff hitter has reached
base at a .436 clip while scoring 37 runs, tied
for the most on the team with freshman Aja
Paculba.
"Stereotypically, the leadoff hitter is sup-


"When I'm up to bat, they're not
really worried about me."
Kim Waleszonia
UFjunior center fielder

posed to see a lot of pitches and have a good
eye," Waleszonia said.
While she is sometimes too aggressive and
doesn't take the amount of pitches a normal
leadoff batter would, Waleszonia tries to bring
something more intangible to the team.
Before every at-bat, she goes through a rou-
tine of multiple stretches and explosive jumps
in the on-deck circle, culminating in a walk to
the plate with fast-paced rock music blaring


over Pressly Stadium's speakers.
"It brings some energy to me, and I try to
push that energy off to my team," Waleszonia
said.
This weekend, the rest of the Gators will
look to their veteran sparkplug to get them
going against the sixth currently-ranked team
they have played so far this season.
Georgia comes into the series on a five-
game losing'streak and will be hungry to pick
up a victory against its rival.
Just like she does every game, Waleszonia
will do her best to motivate her team and ex-
tend its 16-game winning streak.
"All that routine stuff is to bring energy to
the game and to my teammates," Waleszonia
said.

Offense has noticed changes in defense


FOOT, from page 22

And maybe they're on to something, because of-
feniive players have noticed a difference.
"The defense is doing a much better job fill-
ing the gaps," running back Kestahn Moore said.
"They're getting the system down much better.
At first, coach was talking about how the defen-
sive line wasn't there. Now they're playing much
harder. The corners are breaking up more passes
and making more interceptions. The safeties are
co'tinag down and hitting people more."
If there's one sure spot on the defense, it's
linebacker Brandon Spikes. The Tim Tebow of the
defense has been praised all spring by Meyer and
probably won't play much in the spring game be-
cause he doesn't need the reps as much.
But even Spikes knows last year wasn't pretty
- for anybody.
"A lot of times we could've changed our season
by getting off the field on third down," he said. "We
needed guys to make plays, and it didn't happen.
The year before when we won the national champi-
onship, we had big playmakers. Guys were young.
They didn't know what to expect when they got hit
in the mouth. Now when guys get hit in the mouth,
they know how to handle it."
Aside from the defense, there's a problem that


Meyer is even more worried about team chem-
istry. Whenever Meyer walks through the locker
room before practice, he sees players hurry to get
off their cell phones and remove the iPod head-
phones from their ears. Meyer said he wants those
things gone and the players to actually talk to each
other like they did on the 2006 title team.
"Last year was awful chemistry on our football
team," Meyer said. "I'm surprised it went as well
as it did at times. Last year, I think they denied (the
chemistry problems). They were shaking hands
with the president. 'What are you talking about,
coach? We're champs.'"
"The defense is doing a much better job
filling the gaps."
Kestahn Moore
UFjunior running back


But a better defense sure would help that off the
field.
And that's what the players plan on doing.
"We're going to reshape people's thoughts
about our defense this year," Lemmens said. "We
got a chip on our shoulder playing with an at-
titude. That's what Florida defense has always been
like. It's just a bunch of great athletes flying around
making plays."


DANNY, from page 22

I just wish you could look past
those things.
If basketball is truly your
profession, take another year
to learn. You have so much
room to grow. You might as
well do it when nobody will
blame you for trying.
Besides, your team needs
you, even if some people are
too stupid to see.
Everyone who calls you soft
is an idiot. They don't realize
you were never meant to be
anything else.
You're not a center, you just
had to play there because no
one else could. You're a power
forward with enormous skills,
someone who can get off the
ground in a hurry and hit an
outside shot.
You were recruited for your
offensive talents, for your soft
hands and quick feet. Not for
your defense, never .for your


defense.
Next season, someone will
come in and play the five.
Then you can slide over and
become the player you were
meant to be.
You can be everything Dan
Werner wasn't.
You will be able to face
up to the basket and wreak
havoc. In addition, you can
block shots from the weak
side and never worry about
Southeastern Conference bul-
lies taking turns pushing you
around.
You will find a place in
the NBA. There's no doubt
about it. You will find a niche
in a niche league and impress
quickly with a skill set that
can't be taught.
But I promise, Marreese, if
you wait just one more season,
you can forget questions about
whether you're ready for the
next level.
People will wonder if the
NBA is truly ready for you.

UF hosts South Carolina


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Saturday's regular-season finale against
South Carolina could not be more mean-
ingful for the UF men's tennis team's pres-
ent and future.
Before the team takes the courts at 10
a.m. against South Carolina, it will cel-
ebrate Senior Day for Greg Ouellette and
Nestor Briceno, two players who have
made their mark on the UF program.
"Both of those two boys have been
monumental successes for four years," UF
coach Andy Jackson said. "Their first year
they won the (Southeastern Conference),
won the SEC Tournament, went to the
Final Four."
As if that weren't enough to set the
stage, UF's postseason implications and
destination hang in the balance.
"It's going to directly affect our chances


to host a regional and also directly affect
our seeding," Jackson said. "And it will
also directly affect whether or not we get a
bye at the SEC Tournament. So there's a lot
at stake on Saturday."
Amid all these distractions, the No. 8
Gators (12-6, 7-3 SEC) will take on the No.
63 Gamecocks (9-12, 1-10 SEC).
"They've been extremely
^ ^ inconsistent through the
year, which actually makes
S it a little bit difficult to pre-
Tennis pare for them," he said.
Jackson said his team,
which has played five freshmen during
the season, has exceeded his expectations
heading into its final regular-season match,
just one week away from the postseason.
He added that the goals made prior to
the season were to finish ranked in the top
15 and to make the NCAA Round of 16.
"Right now, we're a little bit ahead of
that," he said.


Top-15 UCLA, Nebraska pose

greatest challenges for Gators


GYM, from page 22

see all-arounders Amanda Castillo and
Ashley Reed bounce back after having
rough outings at SECs. She believes the
two will be back to their All-American
form Saturday.
"Every individual has had an off-
night somewhere throughout the season,
and unfortunately for them, it happened
to be at this time," Faehn said. "I have
100 percent confidence that they will re-
bound and do a great job this ieek."
The Gators will need all their gym-
nasts at the top of their games if they
want to take down the three-time de-
fending national champion Bulldogs.
It would also be one of their last
chances to beat UGA coach Suzanne
Yoculan she is retiring at the end of
next season. But UF realizes that before it
head to Athens, it must first take care of
business in Gainesville at the Southeast
Region Championships.
"We make it very clear as a group
and as a team that we are focused only


on what is ahead of us," Faehn said.
The Gators come into the compefton
as the highest-ranked team and will be
the favorites to win the top two teams
from the meet will advance to the na-
tional competition.
"I have 100 percent confi-
dence that they will rebound
and do a great job this we!' "
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach

No. 9 UCLA and No. 15 Nebraska
will be UF's biggest challengers on
Saturday. Performing in front of a home
crowd will give the Gators an edge over
its competitors.
Even with its chance to qualify for the
national championships on the line, UF
will not be afraid to go all-out and risk
falling for the higher scores.
"We're never going to play it safe,"
Sinclair said. "Gator gymnasts never
play it safe. We go out there and go full
throttle every time."

Murphy finds new inspiration after mother's passing


* HE LOST HIS MOTHER ON
VALENTINE'S DAY.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
jmarina@alligator.org.

Every time Louis Murphy scores
a touchdown this season, watch him
point to the sky.
He's talking to his guardian an-
gel. Her name is Filomena.
Murphy and his mother, more af-
fectionately known as Mina, were as
dose as a mother and sor could be.
Mina found a lump in her breast
his senior year of high school.
Gradually, her health prevented her
from attending the majority of his
games last year.
So mother and son devised a sig-
nal that would let them talk to each
other while the wide receiver was on
the field.
Whenever he scored last season,
he pointed to the sky. They spoke
five times.
Murphy went home for two
weeks in the off-season after the
Capital One Bowl when his moth-
er's conditioned worsened and she
had to be hospitalized.
"I told her that I loved her," he
said. "I got a chance to talk to her
before she went."
After a four-year battle with
cancer, Mina, the person he had
grown to call "his heart," died on
Valentine's Day. She was 47.
As soon as coach Urban Meyer
got the phone call, he left the
Southeastern Conference meetings,
hopped on a plane and headed for
St. Petersburg, Murphy's home-
town.


Meyer's mother passed away
nine years ago, so he knew he had to
be there to offer Murphy his condo-
lences and what insight he could.
"The advice when people say,
Time heals all wounds and it's
eventually going to go away,' that's
absolutely wrong," Meyer said. "It's


not going to go away. You just have
to learn how to handle it and almost
use it as strength."
His teammates rode a bus down
for the services at Mount Zion
Progressive Missionary Baptist
Church, where his father is the
pastor. Among those in attendance


was former teammate Reggie
Nelson, whose mother passed
away before the 2007 BCS National
Championship Game.
Nelson has kept his loss extreme-
ly private, and to this day he has
never opened up publicly, but he
reached out to Murphy. The two still

Florida Atlantic on Nov. 17.


swap text messages throughout the
week just to check on each other.
"This football team isn't just
about going out there and pugng
the pads on," wide receivers coach
Billy Gonzales said. "It's about tak-
ing care of each other and being a
family and helping each other out.
Everybody is going to have issues.
"How you get through that is
not by going into a shell. It's about
relying on the other people behind
you." 'I
Though the love and support of
his teammates has helped him cope,
Murphy's grief lurks every day.
"She's on my mind all the time,"
he said. "Even at practice, looking
over there and not being able to see
her."
He knows he needs to push past
the grief if he plans to build on his
respectable junior season he
ranked third among receivers in
receptions (37) and third in touch-
downs (5) that all started with
an outstanding performance in last
year's spring game.
He boasted a team-high 129 re-
ceiving yards and one touchdown.
"I know that my motivation and
that my work ethic is going to a
whole other level," he said. "I know
that I'll be doing a lot of that (point-
ing'to the sky) sign this year."
Murphy said he will always think
of his mother as his biggest fan.
Though he couldn't recall the
last Gators game she attended, he
knows she will "have the best seat
in the house" for every game of his
upcoming senior year.

FASTEST STUDENT CONTEST

Top 15 students advance to face players in 40-yard dash


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

In a contest ruled by the lowest numbers, Gary Bryant is an
anomaly.
Bryant advanced to the finals of the Fastest Gator on
Campus 40-yard dash competition Thursday and will run
against a UF football player before the spring game Saturday.
What separates him from the other 14 students who made
the cut is this: he's almost twice their age. The 37-year-old, who
also works as an accountant for the engineering firm CH2M
Hill would make an improbable winner and even more un-
likely walk-on, a feat that would surely draw movie offers.
"I think Omar Epps could play me," he said jokingly. "It just
feels good to still be able to compete. I guess I'm doing a good


job staying in shape."
The finals will be shown live on ESPN, with three heats con-
sisting of five students against one player. The fastest student
from the three races will receive Gators apparel and a sideline
pass to UF's matchup with Hawaii on Aug. 30.
"I heard he beat Percy Harvin a few times, so I
want to see it with my own eyes."
Jeff Mesadieu
UF sophomore on racing Gators running back Chris Rainey

Despite earlier statements, the winner won't receive a
scholarship, although anyone who can top the likes of receiver
Deonte Thompson and running back Chris Rainey and another
player yet to be annonuced could get a look at a walk-on spot


with the team.
"You guys have our coaches a little bit nervous," said Jon
Clark, an administrative assistant with the team.
Among those keeping the coaching staff on edge is sopho-
more Jeff Mesadieu, who turned in the top times Thursday
with a 4.48,4.5 and 4.51. He ran track at Miami Norland High
and has his sights set on Rainey
"I heard he beat Percy Harvin a few times, so I want to see it
with my own eyes," he said.
Freshman Gabe Lo Fria wasn't far behind Mesadieu, and
he ran the fastest time of the first round with a 4.47 a week ago.
Lo Fria hopes to match up against Thompson on Saturday to
get a little revenge. He played receiver for Boca Raton Pope
John Paul II High, and his team was stomped by Thompson's
Glades Central 62-0 in 2006.
"He burned us," LaFria said.


Decathlon specialist Morrison leads No. 2 UF's renaissance


Spec Towns Invitational next for Gators


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
SAlligator Writer

You could say thatMike Morrison
has commitment issues.
As a high school freshman, he
was a pole-vaulter. His sophomore
year, he tried the long jump. Soon
after that, he took a shot at the
hurdles. The Chesapeake, Va., na-
tive may not be great at one thing,
but he sure is good at a whole lot of
things 10 to be exact.


"After my sophomore year of
high school, I decided to try doing
the decathlon," Morrison said. "The
first time I tried it was at the U.S.
Youth National Meet. I won. From
there, I just kind of stayed with it."
His success has continued.
Morrison earned All-America
honors during the indoor season
but has yet to qualify for the NCAA
Regional meet during the outdoor
campaign.
"The last couple of meets, I have
been setting (personal records)


left and right," Morrison said.
"Hopefully, I will be able to get the
automatic mark out of the way."
The sophomore will have a
chance Saturday when the second-
ranked men's and fifth-ranked
women's track and field teams make
the trip to Athens, Ga., for the Spec
Towns Invitational.
Select members of the team will
make the trip to Tempe, Ariz., for
the Sun Angel Track Classic. UF
assistant coach Rana Reider said it
takes a special athlete to compete in


the decathlon.
"The beating that his body takes
and the amount of time he has to
spend training for each event starts
to take its toll
S after a while,"
Reider said. "It's
hard on him."
Track & Field Morrison said
that while the
event is physically demanding, the
mental aspect is more challenging.
"The mental approach is huge,"
Morrison said. "You have to psyche
yourself up for every event, and you
have to do it 10 times.


"At the same time, it keeps things
fun. You don't really get bored with
anything, because you are always
doing something new."
UF track and field coach Mike
Holloway said that Morrison bs*gs
balance to his team something
the Gators have been criticized for
not having in the past.
The Gators, viewed as a sprinting
program by the rest of the country,
have taken strides toward becom-
ing a complete program this year.
Thirty athletes have already quali-
fied for the NCAA East Reggnal
Meet in 21 different events.

You Decide. .3LO "Recycle FRIDlAYAPRIL 11 20 8 Med school dean controversy continues Admitted student didn't take MCAT By DEBORAH SWERDLOW Alligator Writer dswerdlow@alligator.org A UF official is calling for a review of the College of Medicine's dean's decision to admit a student over the objections of the selections committee and after he reportedly had not taken the standardized medical admissions examination. The Gainesville Sun reported Thursday the student in question, Benjamin Mendelsohn, had not taken the Medical College Admissions Test. In an interview with the Alligator on April 3, the college's dean, Dr. Bruce Kone, said he couldn't say whether Mendelsohn had taken the MCAT because admissions records are kept private. But Kone said in any incoming class in his college, nearly 10 percent of the students have not taken the exam. Dr. Lewis Baxter, a UF psychiatry and neuroscience professor, said an independent panel should investigate Kone's actions in admitting Mendelsohn. Baxter wrote an e-mail to UF President Bernie Machen on Tuesday asking him to initiate a review by U F UF's Faculty Senate. Administration In a phone interview Thursday, Machen said he wouldn't consider such a move. Machen said he's satisfied with the student's qualifications as described to him by Kone. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said an independent review of a student's admission has never been done, and both Sikes and Kone saidthe student is qualified. However, an e-mail from Kone to members of Machen's staff -including Sikes -sent after an April 4 meeting to discuss the admission, indicates Kone might feel he doesn't have administrative support. In his e-mail, Kone wrote that no one at the meeting "had the courtesy or guts to even look me in the eye." "I don't know if it was cowardice, a lack of compassion, or what, but it is symptomatic SEE MED, PAGE 9 STATE Crist's rating high even at record low By KATIE GALLAGHER Alligator Writer kgallagher@alligator.org Even at record lows, Gov. Charlie Crist's approval rating is still respectably high. Crist's job performance as governor has the approval of 59 percent of Floridians, according to a poll released Thursday by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in Connecticut. The poll surveyed 1,215 Floridian voters and had a 2.8 percent margin of error. Crist's approval rating is the lowest it has been since he took office in January 2007. That February, he had an approval rating of 69 percent, and it topped out in July 2007 at 73 percent, according to polls by the same institute. But 59 percent is far from bad, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the polling institute. "Most governors would die for his numbers," Brown said. Michael Martinez, a UF political science associate professor, said he was surprised Crist's numbers weren't lower. The decrease probably came from the end of Crist's honeymoon period and increasing worries about Florida's economy, Martinez said. The same poll found 62 percent of Floridians to be dissatisfied with "the way things are going in Florida today," up from 52 percent when the poll was last taken in October. Only 5 percent said they were "very satisfied." That frustration gets taken out on the governor, Martinez said. But, he said, there's no reason for Crist to worry unless his approval rating drops closer to 50 percent. "He used to crist be in really good shape," Martinez said. "Now he's in good shape." Ben Grove, chairman of UF College Republicans, said his opinion of Crist hasn't changed since he voted for the governor. Though he 'disagrees with Crist on some issues, Grove said he and other members of College Republicans feel he has kept his campaign promises to lower taxes and make the government more accountable. "Yes, it was a little bit of a drop," Grove said of the SEE CRIST, PAGE 9 "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content ~Y8II8hIe from ~ommerciaI We~s Providers" F A UF student is one of the few to study alligator genitalia.

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 3 UF PROJECTS Hough Hall to claim carpooler parking spaces By STEPHANIE GRANADA Alligator Contributing Writer Hundreds of carpoolers will be displaced in August when a new building breaks ground in the parking lot east of Criser Hall. UF's Parking and Transportation Committee met Tuesday to discuss possible alternatives for the 118 parking spaces that will be lost when Hough Hall, a graduate studies building for the school of business, is completed. "You don't just lose a parking lot without it impacting someone," said Robert Miller, a member of the committee who served as chairperson at Tuesday's meeting. "We will have to weigh the pros and cons with the vice president." The committee voted 5-1 in favor of the proposal to transfer carpool spots from east of Criser Hall to the parking areas in front of Fletcher and Sledd halls, a location currently reserved for students. It will submit the plan to Ed Poppel, UF's vice president of business affairs. Construction for the 59,000-square-foot building will begin in August. William R. Hough Hall is anticipated to be completed in winter 2009 and will be used as of spring 2010, said Howie Ferguson, the project manager for the building. The facility will serve to ease some overcrowding in the business school and attract future students. "This is a recruiting tool," Fergurson said. "UF is way behind in that category." Sonia Hodges, who works at Student Financial Services in Peabody Hall, said the new building's infringement on parking would create an inconvenience for her. Hodges bought a carpool decal about a year ago to park next to her building. In the past, she had an Orange decal for faculty and staff parking, but she often found herself with no available spots. "You don't just lose a parking lot without it impacting someone." Robert Miller Parking and Transportation Committee Under the parking proposal, zones designated for faculty and staff decals in Hough's location will also be reduced, but there will more spots added at other locations on campus to compensate, said Scott Fox, director of UF's Transportation and Parking Services. Fox added that a new parking garage is scheduled to open on Gale Lemerand Drive in a little over a year. Parking for people with Orange, Red 3 and Red 1 parking decals will be rearranged in the meantime. Red 1 and Red 3 parking decals are sold to students who live on campus or in fraternities or sororities. Red 1 is designated for students who have completed at least 50 credit hours, while Red 3 decals are sold to students with 49 credit hours or less. Miller proposed moving student parking to the areas surrounding the Southwest Recreation Center temporarily because he said many students do not drive their cars often during the week, and proximity to their residences wouldn't be an issue. The committee will also review a proposal to rearrange parking to make way for a new chemistry building, which is planned to be built in the parking lot next to Keene-Flint Hall. "The reality is over time we will see less and less parking in that area," Miller said. "We can build on the outskirts, but core academics buildings will be on campus."

4, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 UF to host Read-A-Thon N WEEKLONG EVENT TO FEATURE AN EDIBLE BOOK CONTEST. By JAMI BAKER Alligator Contributing Writer There is only one place that chocolate wafers and snow peas go together -the Edible Book Contest, where this concoction is known as "War and Peas." The George A. Smathers Libraries will hold an edible book contest Wednesday as part of its sixth annual Read-A-Thon on the Plaza of the Americas. The Read-A-Thon is held as part of National Library Week, which runs Monday through Thursday. "My favorite event they did last year was the Edible Book Contest," said UF junior Josh Steinberg. "Some of them were weird food combinations but still fun to look at during a study break." Barbara Hood, chairwoman of the Read-A-Thon committee, said the audience would judge the concoctions this year instead of a panel of judges. "Prizes will be given for most creative, least edible, best overall. fiction, best overall non-fiction and best children's book," Hood said. The winners will be announced, and their creations will be eaten at 11: 45 a.m. Winners will receive a gift certificate and a cookbook. "The point of celebrating National Library Week is so we can celebrate reading for fun in an event aside from school," Hood said. Each day of the week has a theme, and students, faculty and the public will have opportunities to read a 10-15 minute excerpt from a book of their choice that fits the day's specific theme. "Libraries around the country all do different things. We just try to make it fun, casual and free flowing." Barbara Hood Read-A-Thon committee chairwoman "Chris Machen always reads for us," Hood said of UF President Bernie Machen's wife. "She likes to read cowboy poetry." Each day will offer free food from various sponsors. I "Libraries around the country all do different things," Hood said. "We just try to make it fun, casual and free flowing."

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Gainesville Police make five prostitution arrests E LOCAL WOMEN OFFERED SEX TO UNDERCOVER COP. By WILL PAFFORD Alligator Writer wpafford@alligator.org Five local women were arrested Thursday morning for offering sex to an undercover police officer. The women, who range in age from 23 to 49 years old, were arrested between 5:22 a.m. and 7:33 a.m., according to their Gainesville Police Department arrest reports. GPD Sgt. Robert Bartley, who was a part of the operation, said police were responding to neighborhood complaints about prostitution. According to the women's arrest reports, they solicited the same officer on Southwest Fifth Avenue, Southwest Second Terrace and South Main Street. Bartley said the officer didn't coerce the women but simply drove by and was flagged down. According to their arrest reports, four of the women offered to perform oral sex on the officer for $20, and the other offered sexual intercourse for the same price. All five denied they were involved in prostitution once they were read their rights, according to the reports. Weasenforth One woman, Ida Brenanette Miller, 42, initially gave officers a fake name and had two active warrants in Alachua County for cocaine and narcotic equipment possession, her arrest report stated. Police found a glass crack pipe in the jacket of one of the other women, Tammie L. Weasenforth, 49, during a search, according to the report. GPD spokeswoman Summer Hallett said prostitution is a problem local police deal with regularly. "Prostitution is a problem in Gainesville because most of it is fueled by a drug habit," Hallett said.

6, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 Editorial This week it seems that along with the pollen and spring, protesting is also in the air. Whether it's the anti-war protestors on the corner of 13th Street and University Avenue, the hunger strikers staking it out in front of Bernie's office or the maniacs trying to extinguish the Olympic torch, it's hard to keep up with who's mad at who for what these days. So, here at Darts & Laurels headquarters, we'll keep it simple for you this week and let you know what should really be pissing you off. Get your signs ready and practice your angry chants for this week's edition of. Darts & Laurels A you-didn't-just-bum-the-bridge-you-blew-it-up DART goes to Dean Bruce Kone down at the College of Medicine. His Friday e-mail to UF President Bernie Machen's staff about his treatment due to the admissions scandal -he admitted a politically connected applicant who didn't take the MCAT in case you missed it -reveals an arrogant, selfentitled rant. In addition to calling Gainesville a small town with "small minds," he went on to say the UF was "stuck in mediocrity" because of its leadership. Unless he has a good excuse for his asinine comments, we hope it's the beginning of his downfall. Maybe if he's gone, we can get out of his so-called "mediocrity." But then again, since he considers a student who never even took the MCAT to be "exceptional," we're guessing his gauge of excellence is twisted anyway. Speaking of lacking qualifications, we dole out a don'tyour-constituents-at-least-deserve-a-decent-explanation DART to student Sen. Sheldon Nagesh. While he did resign due to the backlash from his numerous addresses, saving us all the trouble of having to hear the Orange and Blue Party's complaints, he definitely copped out. His lame explanation that attacks against him prevented him from providing an "effective contribution" makes us more than happy to see him go. A is-this-what-bored-cheerleaders-do-in-the-off-season? DART goes to the Lakeland teenagers who videotaped the beating of a 16-year-old girl they held against her will. Not only was the attack brutal, but the less-than-brilliant girls were taping it to post it on YouTube. We don't know what's more disturbing, watching the tape or hearing it repeat on the cable news networks as if it were the most important thing in global events. Hate to break it to you, CNN, but this happens at high schools across inner-city America every day. Next up, an are-you-just-looking-to-collect-stories-foryour-grandchildren-before-you-graduate? DART goes to members of Students for a Democratic Society who are participating in a hunger strike until Machen has lunch with them to discuss the investment of UF's endowment. Though it was fun to humor them with their melodramatic last vegetarian meal (it doesn't get more ciche than that), we don't really think the only option they have is to deny themselves food -and we don't think eating fruit really counts as a hunger strike anyway. And after hearing the controversial accounts of Iraq Veterans Against the War this week, we're wondering why their outrage isn't directed somewhere else. Our only well-that-kind-of-makes-up-for-cuttingour-Bright-Futures-book-allowance LAUREL goes to the Florida Senate. A committee unanimously approved a bill that could reduce book costs for college students by making schools confirm that required new editions are actually different from earlier editions. The bill also requires that book titles be posted online at least 30 days before a class begins so students have options to buy books from multiple sources to save money. hL indapendet florid. aligtg IRor Ctad Smith EDITOR Devin Calciasure MANAGING EDITOR Panagiota Papakos OPINIONS EDITOR on Kershaw Leigh Shapiro EDITORIAL BOARD The Allgator encourages comments from readers.

Letters to the Editor Time to make online voting a reality Seven years of Student Government debate, conunittees and ballot initiatives, and now a lawsuit -and yet UF cannot seem to end the dispute over online voting. This is a good example of why student governments aren't taken seriously -issues are recycled every semester and never fully resolved. Another committee won't bring to light anything new that hasn't been discussed in previous SG committees on the issue: 1) Online voting works best when there is a paper trail on which to conduct recounts. 2) The concern over voter coercion is overblown when you consider the hyper-importance of the "I Voted" stickers for members of certain UF social organizations. After all, there is no talk of coercion regarding course registration, which functions much the same way as online voting would. 3) Since 2001 online voting or computerized voting has become more commonplace at the university level, and the concerns about being able to secure the data have largely been resolved by technological advancement. When this debate first got started at UF in summer 2001, I was part of a small group of skeptics. Computerized voting has since been tried several times without major probFRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 7 lems except getting the equipment ready on time. The time for debate is really over. Given the success of online voting at other schools, including Florida State University there really are no more excuses. Cut the red tape, end this debate, and bring online voting to UF.

8, ALLIGATOR U FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 Student organization tackles local hunger issue By WHITNEY HOLTZMAN Alligator Contributing Writer UF senior Kendra Levine is trying to make sure hunger in Gainesville is stuffed for good. The food and resource economics senior is president of the Campus Kitchens Task Force, an organization that collects leftover food from local restaurants' kitchens and packages it into individual meals to be sent to social service agencies and served to local low-income groups. The organization will be holding a battle of the bands fundraiser Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Atlantic nightclub that will feature five bands. "All of the bands are fantastic, and the money that is made aids Campus Kitchens in its mission of community hunger relief and directly benefits many in need," Levine said. She said she hopes to raise $1,200, which will go toward buying kitchen supplies, to-go containers, nutrition education materials and extra food. The organization operates out of the kitchen at PK. Yonge Developmental Research School but hopes to ultimately work from UF's Racquet Club Dining Center or Shands at U. Campus Kitchens is a national project that is currently underway at one high school and 11 colleges across the country. Levine began the initiative to bring the "All of the bands are and the money that is Campus Kitchens in i of community hunge directly benefits man charity to UF's campus after organization's national office, Shail Ramcharan, program Partners for a Productive Co provides social services to at fantastic, ties, teamed up with Campus Kitchens in 2007. made aids Ramcharan said some residents might ts mission not be eating the adequate number of meals per day if it was not for the help of Campus r relief and Kitchens. y in need."

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 M ALLIGATOR, 9 l s "Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers" Kone criticized for not rehiring associate dean M ED, from page 1 Tisher verified on Friday that this agreement was reached. However,~ Kone did not honor the agreement after he previously asked Watson to stay on through June 30, according to a reappointment letter in Watson's personnel file. "I just didn't see how I personally fit into that structure." Dr. Lynn Romrell former associate dean of UF's Office of Medical Education Kyle Cavanaugh, UF vice president of human resources, said Kone had the right to not rehire Watson because an employee separates from the university once he completes the Deferred Retirement Option Program. A retired employee should have to go through the normal application process to be rehired, Cavanaugh said. Tisher said Watson was supposed to remain the Jules B. Chapman professor, a $4 million professorship created by Annie Lou Chapman, a 94-year-old medical school donor. Sikes said UF couldn't release documents relating to the professorship due to confidentiality agreements. Chapman and her lawyer declined to comment. The Sun reported Thursday that a Jan. 30 letter from Chapman's lawyer to Machen and Paul Robell, head of the UF Foundation, which handles UF's endowments, expresses Chapman's unhappiness with Kone's decision to not rehire Watson. Shortly after Watson left, Dr. Lynn Romrell, former associate dean of UF's Office of Medical Education and a close colleague of Watson's, resigned. Romrell, who was also an anatomy professor and had been at UF for 33 years, is now an associate dean in FSU's medical school. In a Monday interview, he said he resigned as UF's associate dean in January after he learned that his office would be restructured and because he felt disrespected by members of Kone's staff. A January e-mail from Kone to College of Medicine faculty announces a series of administrative changes, including "the formation of a new Office of Medical Education." "I just didn't see how I personally fit into that structure," Romrell said. Sikes said UF had no comment. Romrell said he thinks his resignation speaks for itself. Poll: 57 percent of Democrats approve of Crist CR IST, from page 1 governor's approval rating, "but we're still talking about one of the most popular governors in the nation." Grove also noted that the Republican governor's numbers aren't bad among Democrats, either. According to the poll, 57 percent of Democrats and 60 percent of Independents approve of Crist's perforrating starting off so high, mance. "If Democrats are approving him as well, you know he's doing a good job," Grove said. With Crist's approval a drop was probably inevitable, Martinez said. "When a politician starts so high in terms of approval ratings, there's nowhere to go but down," he said.

Machen said he didn't attend the meeting, and those who did described it differently. "I think the e-mail he sent doesn't represent what really happened there, to tell you the truth," Machen said. He said Kone has never complained, to him about his administration. Kone may have issues with Machen's office, but his decisions aren't faring well in others' eyes either. Kone chose not to rehire Dr. Robert Watson, the medical school's former senior associate dean for educational affairs, who was set to retire Dec. 31, 2007 after serving 17 years in his dean position. Watson was enrolled in the Deferred Retirement Option Program, which allows state employees to gather retirement benefits up to five years before they officially leave. Watson said Friday that he had an .agreement with former medical school Dean Dr. Craig Tisher that he would be rehired one month after his retirement.

10, ALLIGATOR 0 FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 Focus on Phallus UF student one of few to study alligator genitalia By YUDISLAIDY FERNANDEZ Alligator Staff Writer yfernandez@alligator.org The other day, Ketan Mathavan was walking on campus with his research mentor. He saw the usual -a few students, some trees, a couple of birds. Then he spotted a four-foot-long dead log on the grass. He told his mentor, "That looks like an alligator phallus." His mentor's response: "You've been in the lab too long." Mathavan, who is part of a UF research team that studies the American alligator, was designated one part for the study: the alligator phallus. He is the first student at UF to study the male alligator's genitalia in such depth. The data Mathavan collects help scientists learn more about the link between environmental toxins and birth defects. He uses words like "histology" and "cellular morphology" in everyday conversation, which mean nothing to most of his friends. Now, the scientist-in-the-making eagerly shares with others his fascination for this research project. He can talk about the alligator phallus for hours. But it wasn't always that way for Mathavan. He confessed that at first he felt embarrassed about describing his area of research to others. "But now I take a lot of pride into what I do," he said. "People sometimes bring it up as a joke, but I don't get mad." Indeed, his friends often joke with Mathavan about his unique area of expertise. "They take some cracks on me, like here is the penis guy," he said. This was the first time after several interviews that he used the word penis -Mathavan prefers to call it the phallus. Student Success The 20-year-old always knew he wanted to research. He wondered how and why things happened, and he knew scientific research could deliver answers. But Mathavan never expected he would become the first student at UF to study the alligator's phallus in such depth that his collected data will be included in research papers. Professor Louis Guillette, head of the alligator research team at UF, said few papers exist about the alligator's phallus structure. "Only basic papers [were] written in the 1930s, but nothing like the descriptions Ketan has been able to do," Guillette said. Guillette's earlier research revealed that lake contaminants led to birth defects in the male alligator's sexual organ. Since the alligator and human reproductive systems are very similar, Guillette's team of undergraduate and graduate students use alligators to study whether genital abnormalities among young boys are caused by pollutants in the environment. Walking into Mathavan's peanut-sized lab room, located on the fifth floor of Bartram Hall, is a claustrophobic experience. But labeled bottles, beakers and flasks, all perfectly aligned, are a quick distraction. Mathavan handles his slides and equipment with the same delicacy a mother holds a newborn. "The information I am collecting right now sets the baseline for what is normal in the phallus," he said. "It can be used to compare it to the abnormal phalluses' physiology." The Findings About 16 years ago, a group of scientists, including professor Guillette, discovered that lake contaminants led to birth defects in the alligator's sexual organ. Male alligators, like human Harrison Diamond / Alligator Staff UF junior Ketan Mathavan works with tissue samples of an alligator phallus using a microtome in Bartram Hall on Mar. 26. aZ R r mCoi r esy of Research team members measure an alligator at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. men, are supposed to produce testosterone. The female alligators should produce estrogen. However, the abnormal alligators that have been found in contaminated lakes produce both estrogen and testosterone. This causes an unusual development, in which baby alligators' reproductive systems don't know whether to grow a clitoris or a penis. Some end up -OligI growing a penis, but For an audio one that's too small ligator resear for reproductive use. aww.alligator.orl Part of the investigation is to find the origin of these birth defects. Guillette said alligators are used as models because of the similarities between the human and alligator reproductive systems. So Guillette's findings have not. only raised concerns about the health of Florida's wetlands but about human health. Learning more about why these changes have occurred in alligators can help scientists find out if genital abnormalities among infant boys are related to environmental contaminants, Guillette said. The Alligator Team Originally, Mathavan's first assignment was to reconstruct the alligator's ovary structure. His program mentor, Brandon Moore, decided it would be better to start him off with a simpler structure -the phallus. But the research team has discovered a complexity in the phallus structure they did not expect, explained Moore, a graduate student in zoology. Like some of his peers in the program, Guillette said Mathavan walked in not knowing much about alligator research, so when he discovered something new he experienced the "aha!" moment. "Ketan has shown an infectious enthusiasm for learning and doing things that would lead to discovery," Guillette said. It is rare in the science field for undertorONLINE slideshow of the alIl ch program, visit graduate students to take part in big research projects. The UF-Howard Hughes Group Advantaged Training of Research Program, funded with a $1 millionaward from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, pairs undergraduates with graduate students, giving them the chance to experience first-hand what it means to be a scientist. "Research has completely changed my life," Mathavan said. "Everything about research is great: the social aspect, the intellectual aspect." He was paired with Moore, 37, who primarily studies ovary development in alligators. Moore has guided Mathavan on how to work with phallus tissues. Research Process Some months back, a. group of about eight, including Mathavan and Moore, drove an airboat to Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge at night. A flashlight was used to spot the kings of the swamp, then they were wrestled by the neck and their mouths were rubber-banded. Mathavan explained the alligators don't put up a long fight because they are cold-blooded. After being out of the water for a bit, they need the sun to break down the lactic acid that builds in their body. At night, the breakdown process takes longer, so the alligators tire quicker. Their immobilization helps the scientists get blood samples, take measurements and identify their sex -the most difficult task. The female and male alligators' genitalia look incredibly similar. The only difference? The female's clitoris is smaller and pinkish, while the male's phallus is slightly larger and purplish. tOnce in the lab, technicians put the alligators to sleep with an injection and approved graduate students dissect them. The young researcher is then handed the phallus tissue. First, he dries out the tissue in alcohol and then dips it in wax, freezing it from the inside out. The wax block is then sliced into ultra-thin sections that are placed on glass slides for microscopic examination. Under the microscope, the 3-D slides look like a map with aqua and purple lines. The slides serve as hard copy of his results because they show the phallus's inner structure. Mathavan views the slides with the same pride most guys express staring at their car after a good wax. When he removed his glasses to analyze the cell and tissue patterns through the lenses, his eyes lit up. "I feel a strong desire to finish my project," he said. "It's become my own."

The proposal would affect only a small section of the city but if successful would likely be expanded to the arts district to the north and to other nearby sections of the city. The area has several unfinished condo projects and city leaders want to ensure the city draws and keep new residents, especially during the housing crisis. Sanchez also chairs the city's Downtown Development Authority, which backed the proposal. Virginia Tech pays victims' families ROANOKE, Va. (AP) -Most families of victims of the mass shootings at Virginia Tech have agreed to an $11 million state settlement that will compensate families who lost loved ones, pay survivors' medical costs and avoid a court battle over whether anyone besides the gunman was to blame. Gov. Timothy M. Kaine said Thursday a "substantial majority" of families of victims of the Vrginia Tech shootings agreed to the settlement.Peter Grenier and Douglas Fierberg, who represent 21 families, said the settlement was worth more than $11 million, but neither they nor the governor would discuss its terns until final papers are drawn in a few days. Dalai Lama visits U.S. SEATTLE (AP) -The Dalai Lama arrived in the United States on Thursday for the first time since the recent turmoil in Tibet, serenaded by fellow Tibetans as he prepared to anchor an ambitious conference on compassion. The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader came here a day after demonstrators disrupted the Olympic torch run in San Francisco in a protest of China's treatment of his people. The Dalai Lama will be attending a fiveday conference that begins Friday With the Dalai Lama in town, some community leaders said they expected counter-demonstrations from pro-China groups. But all was peaceful when he arrived at a downtown hotel Thursday, telling local Tibetans who sang to him that he supports nonviolent demonstrations but was saddened by the protests in San Francisco. arch 2008 Zo FRi: Beat the Clock 00 Live DJ N I Ar: Free Beer & Live DJ THEMA.

Sports FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 ALLIGATOR www.aIligatorSports.org Defense ready for another opportunity to prove itself Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff Kentucky wide receiver Dicky Lyons, Jr. scores a touchdown on UF cornerback Jacques Rickerson during the Gators' 45-37 win against the Wildcats on Oct. 20. N THE ORANGE AND BLUE GAME IS SATURDAY AT I P.M. By BRIAN STEELE Alligator Staff Writer bsteele@alligator.org Duke' Lemmens still has a lump in the back of his throat that he has to keep swallowing. The memories even keep the sophomore defensive end up at night sometimes. Watching last season's tape doesn't sit well with any member of the UF defense. The unit ranked dead last in the Southeastern Conference in passing yards a game at 258.5 yards a game, almost 20 yards more than the next-to-last team. Even when the run defense was stout -allowing just 3 yards a carry -the Gators couldn't get any pressure on the quarterback and were burned in the passing game. "I watched that national championship game when I was a senior in high school," Lemmens said. "I knew -the whole team knew it -we definitely took a step back. The talent was there; it was just the maturity and the confidence of the defense. This year, we're not letting ourselves make those excuses. We're going to restore what Gator defense is all about." Well, the only way to erase those memories and let Lemmens finally get a good night of sleep is to get back out there. That's exactly what the Gators' defense will do Saturday at the Orange and Blue scrimmage. But one full year still hasn't passed, and most members of the starting defense still can't crack open a cold Natural Light. As the freshmen become sophomores and the sophomores become juniors, there's reason to expect improvement. If anything, it at least helps to practice against UF's talented offense. "On Saturday, we're going to show the SEC what kind of defense we have," said defensive lineman Carlos Dunlap, who has earned the praise of Urban Meyer this spring. "The defense (last year) didn't have pressure, so we made our DBs look bad. The defense we've got now -we're trying to model it after the national championship defense. The whole D-line's working hard to get it back like it was." SEE FOOT, PAGE 24 Don 't go just yet Marreese D ear Marreese, It's me, just thought I'd chime in on your decision to go pro. It sucks. But hold on a minute. Before you go cutting up newspapers and hang this on your locker, let me explain. I'm not one of those people who think you stink, or claim you're about to make the biggest mistake of your life. In fact, I've spent one night too many defending you to the masses in Gator City, telling people they just don't understand you like I do. The moment I saw you, I knew you would play in the NBA. You have what it takes. It just saddens me to see you leave when you're still just a question, where one more year could change everything.

I don't knock you Marreese, SEE DANNY, PAGE 24 No. 3 Gators prepare for title run BOBBY CALLOVI Alligator Writer bcallovi@alligator.org Two weeks after losing the Southeastern Conference Championship to Georgia, the UF gymnastics team will take the floor Saturday looking to qualify for the NCAA Championships and get another crack at the Bulldogs. The team, whose goal all year has been to win the national championship, is more motivated than ever to attain it after its second loss to Georgia this season by .025. "I feel like it makes you stronger losing by such a small margin, because knowing that it was so close and the smallest little things could make the difference makes you push that much harder to get it at the next competition," sophomore Melanie Sinclair said. While No. 3 UF (12-3-1, 4-2 SEC) is more inspired after the disheartening defeat, it had more work to do in the gym before competing again Saturday in the Southeast Region Championship in Gainesville. The loss didn't have a negative affect on the Gators' attitude in practice. It had them working harder to prove themselves, and the extra effort showed in the first practice after the SEC Championships. "Everyone came in with a great attitude and ready to work harder to put forth all the effort needed to be the best," Sinclair said. In the practices, the Gators needed to get out the small kinks that prevented them from repeating as SEC champs. Junior Corey Hartung Gymnastics said the team has been doing basically the same routine it has done all year except they have been approaching practices different mentally. "We have been motivating ourselves, with positive thoughts and positive talks," Hartung said. "We are concentrating on every turn more and not just going through the motions but really thinking about every little thing."

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 E ALLIGATOR, 23 UF hopes turnaround continues against Arkansas By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer khyppolite@aIligator.org After five consecutive losses, the sky was looking awfully close to the ground if you were a fan of the No. 25 Gators. Three wins in four days can do wonders for your depth perception, as the sky is, in fact, not falling. "We kind of hit a rough skid there and we had to pick it up this week," third baseman Jon Townsend said. "We've still got a long way to go and a tough weekend ahead of us. We've got to keep our heads up." UF's pitching staff was thrashed during the skid, allowing an average of 8.8 runs per game. Those struggles appear to be a distant memory after Kyle Mullaney looked like the ace he always intended to be, throwing six innings in Tuesday's win over North Florida. Stephen Locke and Travis Lawler threw three and 3 2/3 innings, respectively, in Wednesday's victory, easing the strain on the bullpen. With the pitching staff not being overextended in midweek games for the first time in a few weeks, coach Kevin O'Sullivan is relieved to have fresh arms entering this weekend's three-game series against Arkansas (17-14, 3-8 Southeastem Conference). O'Sullivan has spent large portions of the season creating small goals for his pitchers in an attempt to relieve the pressure on players who may attempt to do too much. "We're trying to use it as a positive," he said. "We're saying, 'All you have to do is give us six outs,' or 'All you have to do is give us three outs tonight.' We're trying to use it as a positive, because it is what it is." The Gators (23-10, 8-4 SEC) have responded in their last three games, allowing just seven runs. "We've been grinding it out and getting wins," shortstop Cole Figueroa said. "That's what good teams do, 7 they grind out wins even when they're not playing their best baseball. It's kind of what our den Dekker pitching staff needed, getting some confidence back in the bullpen." For the moment, UF is staying focused on an Arkansas team it considers to be as dangerous as any other in the conference. "They're the type of team that will sneak up on in the SEC," Townsend said. "You can't overlook anyone when you're playing in this league." MCARTHUR PRACTICES: First baseman Brandon McArthur began his comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament Thursday The senior wore a brace on his righ tee, which he injured last week against North Florida. McArthur fielded ground balls with Clayton Pisani, who is starting in his place. UF SOFTBALL Dynamic offense leads way as Gators head to Athens By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Writer kmaistri@alIigator.org The Gators' high-powered offense is proving that pitching isn't the only thing that wins games. No. 3 UF (43-2, 15-1 Southeastern Conference) heads into this weekend's series with No. 17 Georgia (35-13, 8-6 SEC) outscoring opponents 259-49 on the season. While the home runs draw most of the attention, the Gators' version of Murderer's Row starts right at the top of the order with UF's career batting average leader. "When I'm up to bat, they're not really worried about me," said junior Kim Waleszonia, who has hit leadoff for over two years now. "They're worried about what's below me." Through 45 games, Waleszonia bas used that protection to match the .368 batting average -the second-highest mark in school history for a single season -she posted as a sophomore. She said that hitting at the. top of a high-scoring offense has provided her with the opportunity to see more pitches to hit. An increase in pitches to hit has translated to more times on base and more opportunities to score for Waleszonia. The high-energy leadoff hitter has reached base at a .436 clip while scoring 37 runs, tied for the most on the team with freshman Aja Paculba. "Stereotypically, the leadoff hitter is sup"When I'm up to bat, they're not really worried about me." Kim Waleszonia UFjunior center fielder posed to see a lot of pitches and have a good eye," Waleszonia said. While she is sometimes too aggressive and doesn't take the amount of pitches a normal leadoff batter would, Waleszonia tries to bring something more intangible to the team. Before every at-bat, she goes through a routine of multiple stretches and explosive jumps in the on-deck circle, culminating in a walk to the plate with fast-paced rock music blaring over Pressly Stadium's speakers. "It brings some energy to me, and I try to push that energy off to my team," Waleszonia said. This weekend, the rest of the Gators will look to their veteran sparkplug to get them going against the sixth currently-ranked team they have played so far this season. Georgia comes into the series on a fivegame losing-streak and will be hungry to pick up a victory against its rival. Just like she does every game, Waleszonia will do her best to motivate her team and extend its 16-game winning streak. "All that routine stuff is to bring energy to the game and to my teammates," Waleszonia said. L 'L <'tnwversity-Ave, # C -~ A~~le, FL 32603 718~ 88WDY 352.73 7959w cottagegroveatgainesville.com

24, ALLIGATOR M FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 Offense has noticed changes in defense FOOT, from page 22 And maybe they're on to something, because offengive players have noticed a difference. "'The defense is doing a much better job filling the gaps," running back Kestahn Moore said. "They're getting the system down much better. At first, coach was talking about how the defensive line wasn't there. Now they're playing much harder. The corners are breaking up more passes and making more interceptions. The safeties are co'-i6g down and hitting people more." if there's one sure spot on the defense, it's linebacker Brandon Spikes. The Tim Tebow of the defense has been praised all spring by Meyer and probably won't play much in the spring game because he doesn't need the reps as much. But even Spikes knows last year wasn't pretty -for anybody. "A lot of times we could've changed our season by getting off the field on third down," he said. "We needed guys to make plays, and it didn't happen. The year before when we won the national championship, we had big playmakers. Guys were young. They didn't know what to expect when they got hit in the mouth. Now when guys get hit in the mouth, they know how to handle it." Aside from the defense, there's a problem that Meyer is even more worried about -team chemistry. Whenever Meyer walks through the locker room before practice, he sees players hurry to get off their cell phones and remove the iPod headphones from their ears. Meyer said he wants those things gone and the players to actually talk to each other -like they did on the 2006 title team. "Last year was awful chemistry on our football team," Meyer said. "I'm surprised it went as well as it did at times. Last year, I think they denied (the chemistry problems). They were shaking hands with the president. 'What are you talking about, coach? We're champs."' "The defense is doing a much better job filling the gaps." Kestahn Moore UF junior running back But a better defense sure would help that off the field. And that's what the players plan on doing. "We're going to reshape people's thoughts about our defense this year," Lemmens said. "We got a chip on our shoulder -playing with an attitude. That's what Florida defense has always been like. It's just a bunch of great athletes flying around making plays." DANNY, from page 22 I just wish you could look past those things. If basketball is truly your profession, take another year to learn. You have so much room to grow. You might as well do it when nobody will blame you for trying. Besides, your team needs you, even if some people are too stupid to see. Everyone who calls you soft is an idiot. They don't realize you were never meant to be anything else. You're not a center, you just had to play there because no one else could. You're a power forward with enormous skills, someone who can get off the ground in a hurry and hit an outside shot. You were recruited for your offensive talents, for your soft hands and quick feet. Not for your defense, never .for your defense. Next season, someone will come in and play the five. Then you can slide over and become the player you were meant to be. You can be everything Dan Werner wasn't. You will be able to face up to the basket and wreak havoc. In addition, you can block shots from the weak side and never worry about Southeastern Conference bullies taking turns pushing you around. You will find a place in the NBA. There's no doubt about it. You will find a niche in a niche league and impress quickly with a skill set that can't be taught. But I promise, Marreese, if you wait just one more season, you can forget questions about whether you're ready for the next level. People will wonder if the NBA is truly ready for you.

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 0 ALLIGATOR, 25 UF hosts South Carolina By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC Alligator Writer cyazbec@alligator.org Saturday's regular-season finale against South Carolina could not be more meaningful for the UF men's tennis team's present and future. Before the team takes the courts at 10 a.m. against South Carolina, it will celebrate Senior Day for Greg Ouellette and Nestor Briceno, two players who have made their mark on the UF program. "Both of those two boys have been monumental successes for four years," UF coach Andy Jackson said. "Their first year they won the (Southeastern Conference), won the SEC Tournament, went to the Final Four." As if that weren't enough to set the stage, UF's postseason implications and destination hang in the balance. "It's going to directly affect our chances to host a regional and also directly affect our seeding," Jackson said. "And it will also directly affect whether or not we get a bye at the SEC Tournament. So there's a lot at stake on Saturday." Amid all these distractions, the No. 8 Gators (12-6, 7-3 SEC) will take on the No. 63 Gamecocks (9-12, 1-10 SEC). "They've been extremely inconsistent through the year, which actually makes it a little bit difficult to preTennis pare for them," he said. Jackson said his team, which has played five freshmen during the season, has exceeded his expectations heading into its final regular-season match, just one week away from the postseason. He added that the goals made prior to the season were to finish ranked in the top 15 and to make the NCAA Round of 16. "Right now, we're a little bit ahead of that," he said. Top-15 UCLA, Nebraska pose greatest challenges for Gators GYM, from page 22 see all-arounders Amanda Castillo and Ashley Reed bounce back after having rough outings at SECs. She believes the two will be back to their All-American form Saturday. "Every individual has had an offnight somewhere throughout the season, and unfortunately for them, it happened to be at this time," Faehn said. "I have 100 percent confidence that they will rebound and do a great job this iveek." The Gators will need all their gymnasts at the top of their games if they want to take down the three-time defending national champion Bulldogs. It would also be one of their last chances to beat UGA coach Suzanne Yoculan -she is retiring at the end of next season. But UF realizes that before it head to Athens, it must first take care of business in Gainesville at the Southeast Region Championships. "We make it very clear as a group and as a team that we are focused only on what is ahead of us," Faehn said. The Gators come into the competMon as the highest-ranked team and will be the favorites to win -the top two teams from the meet will advance to the national competition. "I have 100 percent confidence that they will rebound and do a great job this Wel" Rhonda Faehn UF gymnastics coach No. 9 UCLA and No. 15 Nebraska will be UF's biggest challengers on Saturday. Performing in front of a home crowd will give the Gators an edge over its competitors. Even with its chance to qualify for the national championships on the line, UF will not be afraid to go all-out and risk falling for the higher scores. "We're never going to play it safe," Sinclair said. "Gator gymnasts never play it safe. We go out there and go full throttle every time." Hey, Ad and Business Majors1 Dive into a new opportunity.

FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2008 N ALLIGATOR, 27 Murphy finds new inspiration after mother's passing E HE LOST HIS MOTHER ON VALENTINE'S DAY. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aligator.org Every time Louis Murphy scores a touchdown this season, watch him point to the sky. He's talking to his guardian angel. Her name is Filomena. Murphy and his mother, more affectionately known as Mina, were as close as a mother and son could be. Mina found a lump in her breast his senior year of high school. Gradually, her health prevented her from attending the majority of his games last year. So mother and son devised a signal that would let them talk to each other while the wide receiver was on the field. Whenever he scored last season, he pointed to the sky. They spoke five times. Murphy. went home for two weeks in the off-season after the Capital One Bowl when his mother's conditioned worsened and she had to be hospitalized. "I told her that I loved her," he said. "I got a chance to talk to her before she went." After a four-year battle with cancer, Mina, the person he had grown to call "his heart," died on Valentine's Day She was 47. As soon as coach Urban Meyer got the phone call, he left the Southeastern Conference meetings, hopped on a plane and headed for St. Petersburg, Murphy's hometown. Meyer's mother passed away nine years ago, so he knew he had to be there to offer Murphy his condolences and what insight he could. "The advice when people say, Time heals all wounds and it's eventually going to go away,' that's absolutely wrong," Meyer said. "It's not going to go away You just have to learn how to handle it and almost use it as strength." His teammates rode a bus down for the services at Mount Zion Progressive Missionary Baptist Church, where his father is the pastor. Among those in attendance was former teammate Reggie Nelson, whose mother passed away before the 2007 BCS National Championship Game. Nelson has kept his loss extremely private, and to this day he has never opened up publicly, but he reached out to Murphy. The two still Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator UF wide receiver Louis Murphy catches a pass from Tim Tebow during the Gators' 59-20 victory over Florida Atlantic on Nov. 17. swap text messages throughout the week just to check on each other. "This football team isn't just about going out there and putng the pads on," wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales said. "It's about taking care of each other and being a family and helping each other out. Everybody is going to have issues. "How you get through that is not by going into a shell. It's about relying on the other people behind you." Though the love and support of his teammates has helped him cope, Murphy's grief lurks every day. "She's on my mind all the time," he said. "Even at practice, looking over there and not being able to see her." He knows he needs to push past the grief if he plans to build on his respectable junior season -he ranked third among receivers in receptions (37) and third in touchdowns (5) -that all started with an outstanding performance in last year's spring game. He boasted a team-high 129 receiving yards and one touchdown. "I know that my motivation and that my work ethic is going to a whole other level," he said. "I know that I'll be doing a lot of that (pointing-to the sky) sign this year." Murphy said he will always think of his mother as his biggest fan. Though he couldn't recall the last Gators game she attended, he knows she will "have the best seat in the house" for every game of his upcoming senior year. "I just know that she's here with me," he said. "I know that she's never going to leave me and that I have a guardian angel." FASTEST STUDENT CONTEST Top 15 students advance to face players in 40-yard dash By MIKE McCALL Alligator Staff Writer mmccall@aIigator.org In a contest ruled by the lowest numbers, Gary Bryant is an anomaly. Bryant advanced to the finals of the Fastest Gator on Campus 40-yard dash competition Thursday and will run against a UF football player before the spring game Saturday. What separates him from the other 14 students who made the cut is this: he's almost twice their age. The 37-year-old, who also works as an accountant for the engineering firm CH2M Hill would make an improbable winner and even more unlikely walk-on, a feat that would surely draw movie offers. "I think Omar Epps could play me," he said jokingly. "It just feels good to still be able to compete. I guess I'm doing a good job staying in shape." The finals will be shown live on ESPN, with three heats consisting of five students against one player. The fastest student from the three races will receive Gators apparel and a sideline pass to UF's matchup with Hawaii on Aug. 30. "I heard he beat Percy Harvin a few times, so I want to see it with my own eyes." Jeff Mesadieu UF sophomore on racing Gators running back Chris Rainey Despite earlier statements, the winner won't receive a scholarship, although anyone who can top the likes of receiver Deonte Thompson and running back Chris Rainey and another player yet to be annonuced could get a look at a walk-on spot with the team. "You guys have our coaches a little bit nervous," said Jon Clark, an administrative assistant with the team. Among those keeping the coaching staff on edge is sophomore Jeff Mesadieu, who turned in the top times Thursday with a 4.48, 4.5 and 4.51. He ran track at Miami Norland High and has his sights set on Rainey. "I heard be beat Percy Harvin a few times, so I want to see it with my own eyes," he said. Freshman Gabe Lo Fria wasn't far behind Mesadieu, and he ran the fastest time of the first round with a 4.47 a week ago. Lo Fria hopes to match up against Thompson on Saturday to get a little revenge. He played receiver for Boca Raton Pope John Paul II High, and his team was stomped by Thompson's Glades Central 62-0 in 2006. "He burned us," LaFria said. Decathlon specialist Morrison leads No. 2 UF's renaissance Spec Towns Invitational next for Gators By MIKE DiFERDINANDO Alligator Writer You couldsaythatMikeMorrison has commitment issues. As a high school freshman, he was a pole-vaulter. His sophomore year, he tried the long jump. Soon after that, he took a shot at the hurdles. The Chesapeake, Va., native may not be great at one thing, but he sure is good at a whole lot of things -10 to be exact. "After my sophomore year of high school, I decided to try doing the decathlon," Morrison said. "The first time I tried it was at the U.S. Youth National Meet. I won. From there, I just kind of stayed with it." His success has continued. Morrison eamed All-America honors during the indoor season but has yet to qualify for the NCAA Regional meet during the outdoor campaign. "The last couple of meets, I have been setting (personal records) left and right;" Morrison said. "Hopefully, I will be able to get the automatic mark out of the way" The sophomore will have a chance Saturday when the secondranked men's and fifth-ranked women's track and field teams make the trip to Athens, Ga., for the Spec Towns Invitational. Select members of the team will make the trip to Tempe, Ariz., for the Sun Angel Track Classic. UF assistant coach Rana Reider said it takes a special athlete to compete in the decathlon. "The beating that his body takes and the amount of time he has to spend training for each event starts to take its toll after a while," Reider said. "It's hard on him." Track & Field Morrison said that while the event is physically demanding, the mental aspect is more challenging. "The mental approach is huge," Morrison said. "You have to psyche yourself up for every event, and you have to do it 10 times. "At the same time, it keeps things fun. You don't really get bored with anything, because you are always doing something new." UF track and field coach Mike Holloway said that Morrison b-sgs balance to his team -something the Gators have been criticized for not having in the past. The Gators, viewed as a sprinting program by the rest of the country, have taken strides toward becoming a complete program this year. Thirty athletes have already qualified for the NCAA East Regjkal Meet in 21 different events.
