Machen remains unsure about budget cuts
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Despite plans to announce next year's specific budget _
cuts at Thursday's Faculty Senate meeting, UF President
Bernie Machen said he would delay his recommenda-
tions until the Florida Legislature ends its session and
finalizes the state budget in May.
But Machen was able to offer some insight into how
enrollment and faculty positions could be affected in
light of what he expects to be a roughly $50 million cut. '
At a meeting with Alligator reporters Thursday, he
referred to the situation as the "worst budget cut I've
endured in 30 years of higher education." -
While he said layoffs would be a last resort, he's not
ruling them out. ; ....
He said his first priority would
UF be protecting the "essence of this
Administration place," specifically tenured and
tenure-track faculty members.
"Quality is our leading product," he said at the Oak.
Senate meeting. .,
"It's the thing that separates us from all the other 7
universities in the area."
Each college is already planning for a hypothetical 6
percent budget cut, and layoff decisions will be made at
the college level.
In his meeting with the Alligator, Machen said his
charge from the Board of Trustees, UF's highest gov-
erning body, was to ensure UF's colleges didn't suffer
across-the-board cuts, which is why he asked them to
come up with their own solutions.
"Across the board would be a prescription for medi- Nicole Safker/ Alligator Staff

Gainesville food bank
receives $10,000 grant
Anne Voyles, an 80-year-old
lifelong Gainesville resident,
doesn't hear a lot of good news
about money in her line of work
- feeding the hungry.
So when the full-time vol-
unteer at Bread of the Mighty
Food Bank, a warehouse that
stores food for agencies to
distribute in five surround-
ing counties, opened up an
innocent-looking letter from
Nationwide Foundation to
find a $10,000 grant, she said
she couldn't help squealing, then
screaming, then crying.
"I was doing payroll when
I got the letter," Voyles said. "I
had just been thinking about
how concerned I was we weren't
gonna make it."
Voyles said that with the state
of the economy, donations to the
nonprofit organization have been
incredibly low. The money from
Nationwide basically doubled
the charity's budget, she said.
Voyles, who has been the
director of Bread of the Mighty
Food Bank since 2000, said she
and the other volunteers decided
the money should go to installing
a refrigerator in the semi-truck
they use to transport food from
Every month, Voyles sends
a trucking company south to
a reclaim center, where food is
bought at a few cents per pound
from various grocery stores. The
stores send food to the center if
it is near the expiration date or if
the packaging is damaged.
With a refrigerator in the
truck, Voyles said they will be
able to buy meats, cheese, greens
and dairy products the organiza-
tion normally has to get from
Last year, Bread of the Mighty
distributed about 1.65 million
pounds of food and necessities to
about 55,170 people, Voyles said.

SG officials forego banquet, donate $15K to UF groups
By ILEANA MORALES
Student Government officials gathered
Wednesday night to reward their peers
for their work this year, minus the $10,000
spent on banquets in past years.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars
on an end-of-the-year SG awards banquet,
Ryan Moseley, Student Body president,
said the executive branch raised $15,000
this year to donate to the Institute of Black
Culture and the Institute of Hispanic-
Latino Cultures, or La Casita.
"We're just not really banquet people,"
Moseley said selling old UF yearbooks
and sponsorships for the housing fairs in
spring and fall helped raise the money
to benefit building renovations for both
Earlier this year, Moseley arranged for
unused furniture and computers at the
Reitz Union to be donated to both groups
as part of the Gator Party's platform. This
most recent donation would buy furniture
and updated technology for both institutes,
At the SG awards assembly, Moseley and
Vanessa Goodwin, Student Body vice presi-
Sdent, handed out plaques
to some SG officials to
recognize their service
and leadership, throwing
in jokes about how much
hair gel Moseley uses in
Most awards were giv-
Moseley en to SG Cabinet directors
and secretaries. Some members of Student
Senate were also honored.

justice, put on his judicial robes to swear in

UF, FIU students battling on Web
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
The Gator Nation's armies have conquered
almost 90 percent of the state of Florida.
UF is winning the online GoCrossCampus
Florida Championship game, which pits state uni-
versities against each other in an Internet strategy
game modeled after the Risk board game.
But UF's lead has recently come into jeopardy.
The game divides the state into 70 territories.
Any student, faculty or alumnus with an active
university e-mail address can register and place
armies on the map of Florida. Then -each school
elects commanders to stage battles during the
daylong rounds to gain additional territories.
As of Thursday afternoon, UF owned 58 ter-
ritories and 517 armies. However, it lost five
territories in Wednesday's round, and Florida
International University has almost 200 more
armies than UF most of which were gained in
the last week.
"Even though we have so many territories, we
could still lose in a month if FIU continues to raise
recruiting," said Tony Gregory, one of UF's three
Gregory, a UF electrical engineering senior,
said UF's bragging rights are at risk unless more
UF students join the site. UF is especially vulner-
able because the other universities tend to form
alliances against the Gators, he said.
"It's kind of us against the world," he said.
Participating in the game can take as little as two
minutes a day, and students can be more involved
if they want to become commanders, he added.
"It's kind of us against the world."
GoCrossCampus UF commander
Patrick Heck, a UF graduate student who
encouraged Gregory to join the game, said he
spends about five minutes every day on the Web
site. As a student from Virginia, he said Florida's
school rivalries are new to him, and he enjoys
reading the chat-room conversations where play-
ers tend to trash talk.
He said he's concerned that UF is struggling
now, and he said it might be because students are
focusing on final exams.
Gregory said he thinks UF has put more effort
into the game than the other schools, so he hopes
UF's team can survive FIU's troop surge, he said.
"We try to keep it fun, but we're very serious
about winning," he said. "We're Florida we

Alma Othman arrived at the
Gainesville Regional Airport after

All she knew was that the next

For most students who come
to study at UF, moving involves
packing a few bags and driving a
couple of hours. For international
students the trip involves moving

The majority arrived from India,

Their experiences are marked by
change, struggle and opportunity
that have influenced who they are
and who they will become.
Making the Move
Othman, a Palestinian doctoral
student in design, construction and
planning, had little time to prepare
her trip to America.
She recalls the frustration of not
knowing where she would live
when she arrived in Gainesville.
Othman had about four days to
find living accommodations on her
own, since the International Center
does not assist students with hous-
This is a stressful process for
many of them because everything is
new and unknown.

funding to facilitate students with
housing," said Debra Anderson, co-
ordinator for International Student
Services at UE.
However, Anderson said some
student groups help new students
Members of the Indian Student
Association lent a hand to Shalabh
Maroo, a master's mechanical en-
gineering student from India. They
helped him find an apartment and
introduced him to new friends.
He moved into Park 16th
Townhouse Apartments because
other Indian students recom-
mended the Southwest 16th Avenue
area since it's dose to campus, has a
supermarket nearby and an Indian
grocery store, Maroo said.
To help these students adjust
to their new surroundings, UF's
Graduate School has partnered with
UF's Counseling Center to offer
workshops to teach them about bu-
reaucracy and culture in the United
States, Anderson explained.
For example, Othman said she
felt overwhelmed by the numerous
rules and laws and how everything
is overly organized more than
necessary she thought.
"I am still learning how to deal
with these complex rules," Othman
For example, Othman wasn't
aware she had to fill out several
financial aid and scholarship forms.
She said it would be helpful if new
students received more advice.
Anderson said she understands
that many students feel inundated
by the paperwork, but it's important
that they learn and follow the pro-
cess needed to get services.
For international students,

a new academic environment.
The major fields of study for
international students are engineer-
ing, and liberal arts and sciences,
according to the report.
Konstantinos Ninios, a third-
year physics graduate student from
Greece, described his professors
as understanding and accessible.
Ninios said professors understand
that international students might
have a disadvantage when it comes
to understanding the language.
"I am a much better per-
son now than when I left
Joey I. Orajay
UF doctoral student
For example, Ninios said some of
his professors in the physics depart-
ment who have several international
students in the class speak slower in
lecture or allow students to use a
dictionary during an exam.
For Ryo Sakurai, an ecology
graduate student, the educational
environment at UF is more interac-
tive than in Japan because profes-
sors and students work together,
"In Japan, lectures are one-sid-
ed," Sakurai said. "Students remain
quiet and don't raise their hands to
However, Maroo, from India,
said the curriculum for students in
his home country'is more demand-
"The curriculum in India is
much tougher than it is here, but the
technology here is more advanced,"
Tuition costs are the highest for
out-of-state and international stu-
While in-state graduate students
pay $311.60 per credit, graduate in-
ternational students pay about three
times more at $941.79 per credit,
based on 12 credits per semester.
They are also required to purchase
health and accident insurance at
about $1,130 per year, according to
the UF Office of Admission's Web
In the international program,
2,962 graduate students are cur-
rently enrolled competed to only 421
undergraduate students, according
to the report. The significant gap be-
tween undergraduate and graduate
students is because undergraduate
students are not eligible to receive
financial aid, Anderson explained.
Othman, the doctoral student
from Palestine, funds her stud-
ies with a UF assistantship and
a scholarship from the United
States Agency for International
Development, which supports stu-
dents from developing countries.
The two are enough to pay for her
classes and live comfortably in a
However, with tuition and living
expenses in Florida rising, the schol-
arship program is not increasing
its aid to match these rising costs,
Othman said. This is a growing con-
cem for her, since she has four years
left to finish her doctoral degree.
In some UF colleges, internation-
al graduate students get a tuition
waiver if they work for the depart-
ment, usually as research assistants.
For example, Ninios works 10 to
12 hours a day as a research assistant
in the physics department, and the
job covers his tuition costs.
Some international students had
never heard of the roommate con-
cept before they arrived at UF, so for
some it was an added worry when
In August 2007, Sakurai arrived
in the U.S. when he swapped Tokyo
for Gainesville. The 23-year-old's
biggest concern was sharing an
apartment in University Commons
Condos with three strangers.
He was paired with two Italians
and an Argentinian as roommates.
To Sakurai's surprise, his new room-
mates' only request was for him to
be himself. Sakurai said the experi-
ence has been better than he ex-
pected because he is learning about
other cultures and experiencing a
lifestyle different from his own.
Shortly after arriving, Sakurai
experienced his first house party.
Everyone who came in was wel-
comed with a hug and a double kiss
on the cheek, even men to men, he
said. It was an awkward moment,
the kind where people hope their
utter shock is not revealed through
their expression, he said.
"In Japan, women and men nev-
er kiss in public," he said. But a few
parties later, Sakurai was greeting
his new friends Italian-style.
The college nightlife of
Americans is also different from
other countries. For Greek student
Ninios, 25, going dancing for the
first time in Gainesville was a mem-
"The way people dance here
is very strange," he said. "I tried
to imitate them, but I didn't do so
well," he confessed.
Ninios said the- nightlife in
Greece is very different. Greeks,
he said, enjoy themselves more. In
Patras, located about 130 miles west
of Athens, all cafes and bars have
sidewalk seating, so locals interact in
the streets and no cars are allowed to
pass through, Ninios said.
For Joey I. Orajay, a doctoral stu-
dent from the Philippines, culture
shock wasn't a concern when com-
ing to the U.S.
Orajay had already completed
his master's degree in Belgium,
where Europeans had exposed him
to plenty of craziness.
He said his passage through UF
has been more of a personaljourney.
In the Philippines, Orajay was raised
with the notion that his circle of trust
included only his family and church
members. He said being distanced
from his loved ones has given him
the chance to build strong relation-
ships in his circle with people who
are different from him.
"I am a much better person
now than when I left my country,"
The 31-year-old has not gone
back home since he arrived in
Gainesville almost four years ago.
He said it's expensive to travel
during peak seasons, which are the
times he gets off from school.
Orajay would rather spend his
time getting to know the American
continent. So far, he has been a tour-
ist in New York City, Los Angeles,
Las Vegas and Colorado.
"I've taken the opportunity to ex-
plore the U.S. because I don't know
if I'll come back," Orajay said.
Many international students
return home after completing their
degrees, while others extend their
student visas to continue studying
or find a job in the states.
Upon earning his master's de-
gree, Sakurai hopes a work visa
will keep him in the country for a
Then he will apply at the
University of Montana's doctoral
program to embark on his lifetime
goal studying wolves.
When Orajay finishes his doc-
toral degree in nematology this May,
he plans to return to the Philippines.
His purpose for coming to UF was
to learn skills he could share with
students at the University of the
The university's only nematolo-
gy professor recently retired and the
university eagerly awaits Orajay's
return to help rebuild their nematol-
"I want to create an interest and
enthusiasm among my students for
a field that is underappreciated in
the Philippines," he said.
But he will never forget his days
as a college student in America.
"Meeting people from other
countries, seeing a wide range of
behaviors and being exposed to new
ideas, opinions have really broad-
ened my horizons," Orajay said. "I
feel everywhere I go I can be fine
and easily adapt to people because
of my experience here."
6, ALLIGATOR N FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2008
The cold weather has made it hard for us to believe
that we've finished the last full week of classes for
the semester. Though we're looking forward to the
end of finals and that walk across the stage for those of
us graduating we here at the Darts & Laurels depart-
ment are going to miss reviewing all the crazy things that
happen in Gainesville. So as you stock up on caffeine and
take advantage of those extended study hours at Library
West, take a second to join us for this week's edition
Darts & Laurels
First up, a thanks-for-getting-rid-of-the-only-reason-
we-listened-to-you DART goes to our former favorite
radio station, 100.5 The Buzz. While we understand that a
radio station wants to attract the largest audience possible,
we don't understand why a station in an area with such a
rich local music scene would turn to pseudo-alternative
programming to make a quick buck.
If we wanted to hear endless repeats of Linkin Park or
Fall Out Boy and other more "listenable" music, we would
have been listening to any of the other "rock" stations. The
claim that the programming was just not popular is lame.
What they really should have said was that it just wasn't
bringing in the green. Why don't you just sell out to Clear
Channel Communications already and make your trans-
needles-ready DART goes out to our orange-glow Gov.
Charlie Crist. Since the U.S. Supreme Court rejected argu-
ments that lethal injections are cruel and unusual punish-
ment this week, Crist didn't waste any time asking for a
list of the worst death row inmates.
He plans to sign his next death warrant as soon as pos-
sible, arguing that justice delayed is justice denied. We
guess they don't call him "Chain Gang Charlie" for being
soft on crime, but we're thinking there's a reason former
Gov. Jeb Bush put a moratorium on state executions.
Next up, a we-can't-make-this-crap-up DART goes to
state Sen. Cary Baker, who proposed a bill that would
make it a moving violation to hang TruckNutz, or rep-
lica bull testicles, from a truck hitch or car. Baker said the
adornments are "not appropriate," and the Senate kept the
provision in the bill Thursday. Those caught with the nuts
on their vehicles would be subject to a $60 fine and points
on their driver's license.
Though it's not the most pleasant thing to look at when
you're stuck behind someone at a red light, we can't be-
lieve the issue made it all the way to the Senate floor. We
don't know what's worse: the fact that the Legislature is
wasting valuable time on non-issues like bull nuts dur-
ing an economic crisis or our next did-you-really-just-
say-that-out-loud DART recipient, state Sen. Jim King's
comments. The Republican from Jacksonville said he had
a set of the testicles on his own truck, which he went on
to describe as "all pimped out." He also defended them as
"an expression of truckliness." Things like that make us
cringe to admit we're Floridians.
Finally, we offer a maybe-it's-the-long-overdue-step-
toward-healing LAUREL to Pope Benedict XVI for initi-
ating a private meeting with victims of the Boston clergy
sex abuse. He even went on to agree that the scandal was
"very badly handled," and he promised to keep the vic-
tims and their families in his prayers. Though many may
believe that the action is too little too late, we think the
Pope is setting the tone for the rest of his leadership.

all the time, but the sadness of leaving makes me break into
I was reading past columns to decide what I could focus
on my final week, and nothing seemed important enough
to be my last topic. I wanted to be able to go out with an
exciting bang. I wanted to say I actually got a job. Nope. Or
that I know where I'm moving in a few months. Nope. Or
that I'm getting married, joining the Peace Corps and filing
an invasion of privacy lawsuit against Facebook. Absolutely
not, couldn't do it and, though that would be awesome, but,
no: Since I couldn't wow you with my plans, I was having
trouble thinking of a closing topic, until I noticed there is a
central theme that has surfaced in almost everything I wrote:
realization and discovery.
By putting my thoughts into words, I've realized a lot
about finding freedom and accepting change. And if you
think about it, you'll see we make a lot of important discov-
eries about our lives while in college.
Freshman year I discovered it is possible, though not
always pleasurable, to live away from my mom. I realized
I could eat pasta every night without getting sick of it. I
learned bunk beds aren't as exciting as I believed they were
as a child. And I could never live in a brothel because, among
other obvious reasons, I learned there is such a thing as too
many girls living in one place.
Sophomore year I learned college can be a lot of fun, es-
pecially if you live in an apartment complex with 11 friends.
At this time, I also realized that changing your major could
become a hobby if you let it. And I discovered that hobbies
from your childhood, like dance, are not necessarily as fulfill-
ing in college. But if you're looking
for a new hobby and your dad is
willing to pay for it, traveling is a
My junior year I realized love
can hurt if you're not careful.
While interning in Los Angeles, I
Carly Hallam decided that living in a town full
email@example.com of strangers is not as lonely as it
sounds. And at this time, it was
also brought to my attention that
celebrities often don't look as good up dose. Except Orlando
Bloom. He looks good from any distance.
During my senior year I had the most significant revela-
tions of all. I now know that I'm lucky to have friends who
are always available for a conversation, a good cry or even
just lunch. I understand that even if you're smart, it doesn't
mean you will pass business finance. I realized that laughter
is not only the best medicine, but also the best way to bring
different people together. Finally, I feel like I've somewhat
come to know myself. I want to be a writer. And I want what
I write to make other people laugh.
So while I was hoping to go out with an exciting bang, I'll
have to settle for going out with a simple "woo hoo!"
Just because it's time to move on doesn't mean life will
offer you a cear path to the future. But complaining doesn't
make things better,and worrying doesn't make things hap-
pen. So I'm going to focus on the positive. My career plans
are just as uncertain as the day I started school here. But my
life is not. I've realized what's important to me, and I chal-
lenge everyone else to do the same.
The end of one thing is the beginning of another. The end
of this semester gives us all the opportunity to realize more
about ourselves and to discover more about our futures. And
there's nothing more exciting than that. Woo hoo!

Hunger strike is last resort for change
First of all, I would like to clarify that
Students for a Democratic Society hasn't been
asking the administration for transparency
since September of last year. What we've been
pushing for the past seven months is a socially
responsible investment policy with limited
transparency to a committee, which will not
reduce competitiveness, as Steve Orlando
likes to claim.
Second, hunger strikers have been sitting
around campus for several days with signs
reading, "Ask me why I haven't eaten in

Student-run clinic offers medical help to the uninsured
* MEDICAL STUDENTS PROVIDE
A VARIETY OF FREE SERVICES.
By HAILEY MAC ARTHUR
Alligator Contributing Writer
It's a Thursday night in downtown
Gainesville. While the rain is pouring, 13
people are standing in line outside a non-
Like many Americans today, these 13
people cannot afford health insurance, so
they come to the UF College of Medicine
Equal Access Clinic, a free, student-run
clinic offering basic medical services to the
uninsured in the community.
The clinic is held every Thursday night
from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Family
Practice Medical Group, located at 625
S.W. Fourth Ave.
Amanda Pearcy, co-director of the
clinic, said the Equal Access Clinic differs
from other area clinics because volunteers
maintain personal relationships with pa-
"I recognize patients from week to
week," Pearcy said. "They come and know
you by name."
The clinic offers services in full primary
medical care, follow-up medical care, ad-
ministration of medications, blood pres-
sure and blood sugar monitoring, anony-
mous HIV testing and psychiatry.
Every patient has a different reason for
coming to the clinic.
Pamela Duey comes to receive a dis-
count on her medication for high blood
pressure. She is a graduate of UF and is
employed but uninsured.
"It is a very slow process, so it would
be'nice if it was sped up," Duey said; "but
I understand this is a free clinic, and these
Pearcy said patients get frustrated with
"Sometimes we can't see everyone,"
she said. "We just don't have the time and
Fritz Kalinowski, a security officer at
Shands at AGH who sometimes works at
the clinic, said the clinic tries not to turn
"The last time I was here, it was just
pouring down like tonight, and some-
one walked up right before we closed,"
Kalinowski said. "They took him back,
saw him and had him out of here in pretty
good time. It seemed like it worked well
Pearcy said the students and faculty
who volunteer at the clinic think that
health care is something that everyone
"Our slogan is 'Health care is a right,
not a privilege,'" she said.
But not everyone has access to health
care. According to the 2004 Florida Health
Insurance Study, the statewide percentage
of uninsured Floridians under age 65 is
In Alachua County, 13.4 percent are
uninsured, said Dr. R. Paul Duncan, prin-
ciple investigator of the study and profes-
sor and chairman of UF's Department of
Health Services Research, Management
Duncan said the uninsured cannot af-
ford the high cost of health insurance, and
family coverage in the U.S. costs about
$12,000 a year, he said.
Duncan said generally, the uninsured
earn a low income, work in the service
sector, are relatively young and are mi-
"They're not people who are destitute,"
he added. "They're people who work
regular full-time jobs."
Duncan said health care can make all
the difference for a person's well-being.
He said insured people are healthier
than uninsured people and are more likely
to get the right kind of medical care, in the
right setting, at the right time.
This results in lower mortality rates,
"They are better off by any reasonable
standard," he said.
But even with insurance, a person
might not have access to health care.
Living in a community without doc-
tors, having no transportation to get to
the doctor or having a fear of doctors will
not help even if a person is well insured,
"Just having an insurance card in your
wallet doesn't guarantee you access," he
Health care access is an issue people
should care about, Duncan said.
"We should care in the same way we
would care if people didn't have access to

cause she cares about the uninsured in the
"It is an altruistic idea to care about
your fellow man," she said. "If you just
care about yourself, you aren't going to
get gratitude or enjoyment out of life."

Speakers discuss media, politics
By STEPHANIE ROSENBERG
Alligator Contributing Writer
In the midst of a political frenzy
surrounding the 2008 presidential
campaign, UF's Bob Graham Center
for Public Service turned the focus
from the candidates to the media.
New York Times Magazine
political journalist Matt Bai and
Democratic campaign worker Joe
Trippi, author of "The Revolution
Will Not Be Televised: Democracy,
the Internet and the Overthrow
of Everything," took center stage
Thursday night at Pugh Hall to
discuss the role of the media on the
2008 campaign trail.
Former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham
was the host, while Tom Fiedler, for-
mer executive editor of the Miami
"We wanted to have a discus-
sion of the old and the new media,"
Graham said. "We wanted to have
not a partisan difference, but a dif-
ference in perspective."
Much of the focus of the con-
versation was directed toward the
Internet's effect on modern political
"The campaign has the ability to
directly create its own network of
supporters, who can then keep that
message going and connect in a way,
that raises money," Trippi said.
"We wanted to have not a
partisan difference, but a
difference in perspective."
He critiqued Hillary Clinton's
campaign for its lack of innovation
in recruiting support.
Bai discussed his concerns about
the future of journalism in general
and how the Internet has somewhat
fueled the public's mistrust of me-
"The Internet hasn't changed
politics; the Internet has changed
everything," Bai said. "Politics, as
usual, is one of the last institutions
to catch up."
The event concluded with an
session, as many of the attendees
inquired about the future of politics
and technology, especially concern-
ing social networking Web sites.
Trippi said a friend on the
Howard Dean campaign enlight-
ened him on the nature of the
Internet political phenomenon.
"He said, 'This is about
Americans having faith in strangers
again,'" Trippi said.

resorted to," Janusz said. Hallett said she thinks Borah
may have targeted The Polos because it is predominantly

"There are a lot of cars, college students may think
nobody is going to take their stuff or they leave valuables

Machen: Enrollment could be cut
MACHEN, from page 1
Machen said a few of the proposals he's al-
ready seen have left certain positions unfilled in
preparation for cuts.
In that case, those vacant positions could be
eliminated, and no current faculty members in
that college'would be impacted.
"A dilution of quality is really cheating
However, he said UF still has to worry about
the indirect effects of fewer teachers, such as an
increased student-faculty ratio.
"A dilution of quality is really cheating future
generations," Machen said.
UF's ratio is currently 21:1.
Machen said the goal is to lower the ratio to

Keating, the Gators No. 2 starter,
has been the most consistent player in
UF's pitching staff, but it wasn't that
long ago that Keating's college career
appeared to be headed in the wrong
direction. While he had a respectable
3-2 record in 21 appearances last sea-
son, Keating's sophomore season left
a lot to be desired. His 5.79 ERA made
him one of seven UF pitchers with an
ERA over 5.00 in 2007.
Like he does for the rest of Keating's
teammates, coach Kevin O'Sullivan's
influence has been vital to turning
around a pitching staff that had a
combined ERA of 5.27 last season.
"Sully and I worked on my de-
livery a lot," Keating said. "And his
fast-paced, aggressive philosophy re-
ally suits me well. Most importantly,
he helped me get some more sink in
my fastball. I was leaving it up; a lot
more hitters were making contact on
it. Getting my fastball lower is keeping
guys from getting that early contact."
Keating has been one of the few
bright spots in the Gators' pitching
staff during their recent 9-10 stretch,
and the key to his success has been his
ability to keep the opponents' leadoff
hitter off base.
"That's extremely important,"
O'Sullivan said. "Anytime you get the
leadoff man on, whether it be because
of a hit or a walk, the (chance) of him
scoring is awfully great. He's done a
nice job of that."
Keating's confidence has grown
exponentially as the season has pro-

Gators start run at SEC
By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
It's the moment both teams have been
waiting for all season tournament time.
The UF men's and women's tennis
teams begin Southeastern Conference
Tournament play Friday after earning first-
round byes by finishing in the top four.
The women's team captured its 23rd
SEC regular-season title and finished with
an undefeated conference mark for the
17th time in the program's history, earning
the No. 1 seed for the SEC Tournament.
Despite claiming the top seed, the
Gators will face a much tougher draw than
No. 5 UF (18-1, 11-0 SEC) will take on
No. 30 Auburn (16-8,5-6 SEC) in a quarter-
final match at 3 p.m. on the Tigers' home
courts. Auburn defeated South Carolina
4-0 in the first round Thursday.
"I think our draw is very, very difficult,"
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said at a press
conference Monday. "For a one seed, this is
about as tough of a draw as I've seen in this
"I'm hoping [Auburn is] just gonna
duke it out forever (with South Carolina)
on Thursday, and then we pick up the
pieces on Friday."
Just two weeks ago, UF received its big-
gest scare of the SEC season against that
Auburn team on the same courts that it
will step onto Friday.

more Anastasia Revzina held off her op-
ponent in a third set, 6-2, to give the Gators

"Auburn gave us all we could handle,
really," he said. "We certainly saw their tal-
ent level, and they have some players that

Keating is one of his favorite play-

"Personally, I enjoy seeing him

I'm sorry if I sound like I just

sick pleasure, I don't know. What
I can say for certain, though, is I

was able to write.

"It's great to hear that from him,
but that means I have to keep it
going," Keating said. "We've all
got work to do, and we're going
to need everyone if
we're going to be
successful. We can't
let up now."
Baseball Keating is quick
to defuse any incli-
nation that there's growing frustra-
tion as the Gators have fallen from
the Baseball America Top 25 and
their perch atop the SEC East.
"Everyone still feels pretty
good," he said. "It's important how
we come back from it. Sometimes
we're pitching well and not hitting
well, or hitting well and not pitch-
ing well, but we'll bounce back."
But, moving on, I have to slap
myself for this one.
I think sometimes in life you
hide from the things that matter
most, which somehow tell your
whole story without ever saying a
word. It's these things, which I'm
sad I usually avoid, that at this mo-

The scoreboard may have been

far from empty.
Practice starts in 30 minutes, but
the off-field duties of its superstar
start early, and as I sat on a leather
couch in the team's lounge, I found
myself largely unprepared for the
continuous stream of humility that
would soon resonate, not only with
those asking the questions but with
any overhearing the responses.
Even while talking of herself, it's
never about Stacey Nelson.

On this day, it seemed too many
outings for the ace to recall.
"What does the wins record
mean to you?" a reporter asked,
abruptly changing the interview
"Is that...do we have the wins

confirmation from her sports in-
formation director, or anyone else
in the room who might be able
to shed light on this newfound
"No, you do," the reporter an-
"Oh! Ohh...uh...," a confused
"Does that mean anything? Or
is it significant at all?" the reporter
revised his question.
"It's...Its good." she decided.
"Were you aware, at all, that
you were dosing in on it?" he tried
"No, I was actually surprised
because I expected someone to
have over 100 wins in a career,"
If someone has never heard
of Stacey Nelson before, that ex-
change is the best place anyone
could possibly start in the tall order
of describing the most unassuming
yet dominant athlete on campus.
Almost anyone within 20 miles
of UF can recite the Heisman
Trophy-winning statistics put up
by Tim Tebow or attest to a time
when he or she saw the Golden Boy
single-handedly change a game,
but few among the Gator Nation
can claim to hold similar knowl-
edge of Nelson's prowess.
During her sophomore season,
she pitched her way to one of the
most jaw-dropping seasons by a
In 42 starts and 58 appearances,
spanning a school-record 318 in-
nings, Nelson posted a 34-14 re-
cord, logged five saves, held batters
to a .184 average and finished with
a 0.95 ERA.
On 14 occasions, opponents
could not muster a single run.
Athletes often can't achieve elite
status until they make a significant
impact on the success of their team.
In 2007, the Gators softball team
enjoyed its best season in team his-
tory on the back of its ace.
UF finished the season 50-22
- a record amount of wins and
came within one game of reaching
the College World Series for the
first time in the program's 11-year
Nelson would go on to cap
the season with numerous All-
American honors to go along with
a second team All-SEC award.
After a year like that, the expec-
tations on the pitcher were huge,
and she was expected to take her
team even further this season.
The Gators came into the year
with a No. 13 national ranking
the highest in school history -
and she came in on the Amateur
Softball Association's USA Softball
Player of the Year watch list.
"There are a lot of expectations,
so I guess I'm really going to have
to get out there and show them
something," Nelson said in an pre-

kind of person. Bob Marley
But no one could have known
just what she would show to any-
one willing to take notice.
She has made 30 starts and 37
appearances in her junior year,
gone 31-2, thrown 27 complete
games, recorded 3 saves, held op-
posing hitters to a .158 average and
posted a miniscule 0.75 ERA.
In addition to becoming the
Gators' career wins leader, she has
also become the school strikeout
leader adding 245 K's this season
alone and running her record num-
ber to 641- impossibly moving
her name to the front of, perhaps,
the two most prestigious pitching
records, despite only being in the
middle of her junior season.

Gainesville to get an education. "I

The next dream she hopes to
make a reality is a College World
Series appearance, which has
eluded her and the Gators during
her first two years.
That ultimate team goal seem to
bring out the only true sense of ac-
complishment for Nelson.
"It means that if I don't get there,
I'll be very disappointed."
College students use Facebook
as a way to give anyone browsing
their profile an idea of who they are
and what they do.
The content of Nelson's profile,
however, might surprise some

her in a UF uniform, it would be
impossible to tell she played a sport
by looking at her Facebook.
Sometimes you can't even tell by
talking to her.
"I'm not used to being a jock,"
Nelson said. "I never want to really
fit that stereotype, because all my
friends back home, none of them
play sports, so I'm not used to talk-
ing about sports or doing sports.
It's so weird to be 'Stacey Nelson,

The immediate' reaction is to
come away with a murky compre-
hension of Nelson as a person be-
cause it is hard to fathom the lack of
softball's influence on her life.
But it's exactly the opposite.
UF coach Tim Walton recently
gave his opinion on just what
Nelson means to the program, as a
player and as a person.
"I don't know that I can asses
her worth to the program, (it) is just
immeasurable," he said. "I always
say that she is as good of a person
as she is a pitcher, probably a better
person than she is a pitcher. ,
"I think that is who she is, m6re
than just a great pitcher."

Kentucky-native Ratliff faces hometown Wildcats
By KYLE MAISTRI
A quick once-over of senior
Mary Ratliff's Facebook profile
leaves no doubt as to where the
outgoing right fielder grew up.
Even if you covered up
Blit hometown information,
"Kentucky" appears five times
alone on Ratliff's profile, and the
letters "UK" that school from
the Bluegrass State appear
This weekend, No. 3 UF (48-2,
18-1 Southeastern Conference)
takes on the school, Kentucky
(16-28; 3-16 SEC), that passed
on recruiting a hometown player
and a born-and-raised Wildcat.
"It's always fun. I obviously
-grew up in that area," Ratliff said
of playing Kentucky. "I grew up a
UK fan, and most of my family is
still Kentucky fans at heart.
"It's a big series. I like having
the chance to play them."
Ratliff would have liked to
have played for them coming
out of high school, but after the
Wildcats showed no interest in
her, she followed her older broth-
er Will down to Gainesville.
It's safe to say Ratliff is happy
with the outcome.
UF is 32-6 all-time against
Kentucky, including an 8-1 re-
cord over the three years that
Ratliff has been in Gainesville.
When both teams enter Pressly
Stadium on Saturday for the first
two games of a three-game se-
ries, the disparaging difference
between the programs will be on
The Gators, who sit atop the
SEC East, boast a .312 team bat-
ting average and 0.94 team ERA.
By comparison, the Wildcats,
who reside in the SEC East cellar,
come into the game hitting .263
as a team while posting a 4.17
Despite the fact that Kentucky
doesn't usually field a very com-
petitive softball team, Ratliff said
that playing the Wildcats is al-
ways an exciting game for her.
And although her past is filled
with allegiance to Kentucky, she
set the record straight in regards
to where her heart lies.
"I am a Gator through and
through, and that won't ever
change," she said.
At the same time, Ratliff
admitted that when the Gators
aren't playing the Wildcats and
a Kentucky win would do no
harm to any of UF's programs,
she cheers for the team that she
grew up with.
As a matter of fact, her
Facebook says she can name the
Kentucky basketball team's start-
ing five in any given year.
"Ramel Bradley, Joe Crawford,
Derrick Jasper when he's healthy,
Patrick Patterson, of course, and
Mark Coury, maybe the goofiest
looking guy," Ratliff answered
when put to the test about the
most recent squad.
She was mostly right -
Ramon Harris started in place of
Jasper for much of the season.
But who could blame her;
she's a Gator after all.
