RTS launches GPS bus tracking program


* BUS LOCATIONS CAN BE
TRACKED ON WEB SITE.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Contributing Writer

After months of delays, students
who commute to campus on RTS
buses can finally check the loca-
tion of their buses online thanks to


newly installed Global Positioning
System units.
The Gator Locator bus track-
ing system, which has been in the
works for about a ypar, launched
Monday.
The GPS units are installed on
50 buses that run on a total of about
30 routes, said Bob Miller, UF's as-
sociate vice president of business
affairs.


The routes primarily go from on-
campus to off-campus locations.
Buses that stay on campus were
not equipped with GPS units be-
cause they circulate so frequently,
Miller said in a phone interview.
Students can view the
location of their buses at
www.ufl.transloc-inc.com. Links
to the Web site are also posted on
the UF Transportation and Parking


Services Web site and the Regional
Transit System Web site.
The plan to put GPS units on
UF RTS buses began
Projects more than a year
ago when former
Student Body
President Ryan Moseley assumed
office, according to Student Body
President Kevin Reilly.
"This is Ryan's pet project,"


Reilly said.
The bus tracking system, spon-
sored by UF and RTS, was delayed
for several months by electrical
problems, said Dominique Bischof,
co-founder and vice president of
product development at TransLoc,
the company providing the GPS
service for the buses.
TransLoc also provides bus-

City remembers Bo


Diddley at memorial


Kelly Carter holds hands with Ron Haughbrook, bass player for Bo Diddley for 35 years, at the
Showers of Blessing Harvest Center, where a funeral service was held for Diddley Saturday.


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Writer

Hundreds of people sang, clapped,
rocked and rolled Saturday evening in
memory of Bo Diddley, the legendary
singer, songwriter and guitarist who
died last week in Archer.
The ceremony, which concluded a
day devoted to the musician, was at-
tended by family, friends and fans of
Diddley.
A slideshow shown in East
Gainesville's Martin Luther King
Multi-Purpose Center chronicled some
of Diddley's achievements and family
history. Groups of musicians, many
who had played with Diddley, per-
formed tributes to the man, whose real
name was Ellas McDaniel.
Eric Burdon, lead singer of the rock
band The Animals, began the musical


part of the ceremony with a pair of ma-
racas in hand and Diddley's daughter,
Evelyn Kelly, singing occasionally at
his side.
Burdon said he
credits Diddley with
understanding the
power of one con-
stant, thundering
rhythm.
"That's what gets
Diddley through to people,"
Burdon said. "Rock
'n' roll should be like a Bo Diddley
punch in the face." That "punch" refers
to Diddley's signature "Bo Diddley
Beat," a driving five-part rhythm that
is heard in numerous rock hits.
Burdon said Diddley helped create
the base for rhythm and blues and

Dr. Michael L. Good was
named the College of Medicine's
interim dean Friday afternoon,
less than a month after becoming
acting dean following the demo-
tion of Dr. Bruce Kone.
Good was appointed by UF


Cole Figueroa is
now weighing his
options after he
was selected in the
sixth round of the
MLB Draft by the
San Diego Padres
on Thursday. He
still has two years
of eligibility at UF.

Dr. Doug Barrett, UF senior vice
president for health affairs.
Good took the college's helm
May 22 when Kone, the college's
former dean, was demoted from
dean to faculty status.
Kone came under scrutiny
after his controversial decision
to overrule a medical school ad-
missions committee and admit a


politically connected student was
made public in
April.
Kone is on
personal leave
until July 1, said
Tom Fortner,

man.
Fortner said he expects Kone

Good will earn an annual sal-
ary of $512,000 as interim dean,
Fortner said.
Barrett appointed Good, an
anesthesiology professor, to in-
terim dean after meetings with

Good, who has been at UF for
20 years, has been senior associ-

Northeast Pool reopens
after $1 million renovation
Gainesville residents found a
welcome respite from the-scorch-
ing sun Saturday at the grand
opening of the newly renovated
Dwight H. Hunter (Northeast)
Municipal Pool.
While the pool had technically
been reopened for more than a
month, city officials celebrated
with a ribbon-cutting ceremony
and family-oriented attractions, in-
cluding a free swim, a giant inflat-
able alligator-shaped trampoline,
a moonwalk and a synchronized
swimming show. The pool dosed
for the project in November 2006.
In brief remarks before the rib-
bon cutting, City Commissioner
Scherwin Henry said when he
was growing up in Gainesville, the
35-year-old pool was a centerpiece
of the community. Henry said the
pool used to offer "date nights,"
which he frequented with his
childhood girlfriend, who is now
his wife.
On Saturday, visitors enjoyed
almost $1 million in renovations to

the Olympic-sized pool, located
at 1100 NE 14th St., including
a new vinyl liner, shade tents,
lounge chairs and a refurbished
water slide.
Suni Brito, mother of two,
said she values the healthy, out-
door experience the pool offers.
"The kids can play, and I can
rest," Brito said. "It's an updated,
modem pool with all the ameni-
ties."

for the Atlanta Hawks' NBA
franchise dance team Saturday
in the Reitz Union.


Four were chosen to move
on to Fabulous Finalists Week in
Atlanta on July 13, where they
will participate in a boot camp and
showcase.
Donni Frazier, the director
of the group, known as A-Town
Dancers, is a UF alumna and for-
mer Dazzler. Frazier said she used
to coach the Dazzlers and chose
UF for the Hawks' only satellite

STUDENT LIFE

UF gyms establish fees


By SARAH JONES
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students using UF gyms this summer
may soon feel the burn not only in their
muscles but in their wallets, too.
Beginning July 1, UF students not
enrolled in summer B or C classes will be
required to buy a RecSports Membership
to use any campus gym for the rest of the
summer.
The policy will continue throughout
the year.
From now on, non-enrolled students
will be able to purchase a summer C or
fall semester membership for $100 and a
summer B membership for $50.
In past years, only an active Gator 1
Card was required for students to have
access to gym facilities year-round.
David Bowles, Recreational Sports
director, said other Florida public univer-
sities require students not taking summer
classes to pay a fee for summer gym use.
Because the gyms' operations are
funded by UF's Activity and Service
Fee of $10.16 per credit hour, unenrolled
students have technically not been pay-
ing for their use of campus gyms, Bowles
said.
He said the decision was not made to
cope with recent university budget cuts
but is meant to create a consistent policy
for the university.
"The membership rate is very reason-
able relative to what's being charged at
other universities across the state, and it's
very reasonable relative to what's being
charged at local gyms," he said. "At the
end of the day what I want is for people
to be exercising, whether that means
they're at home or in one of our gyms."


He said RecSports has not decided
how to use the revenue generated from
the fee.
As Bowles expected, some students
are upset about the new policy.
"I understand the change because it's
included in the [Activity and Service]
Fee, but I think $50 is kind of steep," said
Jessica Booth, an anthropology senior.
"The membership rate is very
reasonable relative to what's
being charged at other uni-
versities across the state, and
it's very reasonable relative to
what's being charged at local
gyms."
David Bowles
UF Recreational Sports director

Jonathan Scholl, a history graduate
student, said he would probably look at
membership fees for private gyms before
paying UF's fee for summer B use.
"I understand it given all the cost
cutting, but it's both a bit high and unex-
pected," Scholl said.

Monthly student rates
at Gainesville gyms

Gainesville Gym $25
Fit for Life Fitness Center $55 (for adults),
$99 for three months (students only)
Gainesville Health & Fitness Center $48
Alter Ego Fitness $34 (first month)

UF study: Strokes more likely in Southeastern region


* RISK OF STROKE DEATH TWICE AS

A new UF study suggests that just visit-

Carolina and Georgia may increase the risk
of dying from a stroke.

Ilan Shrira, a UF psychologist, found
that people who visited the area known as
the "stroke buckle" became 11 percent more
likely to suffer from a fatal stroke.
The buckle is part of the larger
"stroke belt," which spreads across eight
Southeastern states including Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and
Tennessee.
Florida is not in the belt.
In the study, Shrira found that residents
who left the region were also 10 percent less


likely to die following a stroke.
Researchers compared death certificates
dating from 1979 to 1988 of all residents and
nonresidents of the 153 counties that make
up the buckle.
Shrira collaborated with
U F two researchers for the
Research study, including George
Howard, a biostatistician at
the University of Alabama
at Birmingham School of Public Health.
Howard said the risk of stroke death in

the "stroke buckle" is about twice as high as
the rest of the country.
There are several possible causes for the
increased risk of stroke, including hyperten-
sion, infection, genetic factors and quality of
health care, he said. The fact that this region
affects visitors as well as residents seems to
point to short-term factors playing a role, he
said.
But such theories are difficult to test, he
said, and there is not enough good data to
draw any conclusions yet.

Absent Minded

Faculty should embrace

textbook savings law.
T he true measure of any college's or university's suc-
cess is found in the quality and dedication of its
faculty members. While a prescient administration
and an intellectually eager and engaged student body are
also essential elements of a successful institution of higher
learning, without committed professors who challenge us
academically and inculcate a life-long love of learning, the
university system fails.
We owe a great debt of gratitude to our often underpaid
and overworked faculty for sparking robust class discussions
and posing provocative questions on a wide range of issues,
forcing us to think outside the box or to contemplate a differ-
ent point of view from our own.
It is our professors who inspire us to do great things and
make the world a better place, and we admire and respect
them for that.
Yet, we can't quite understand why some faculty mem-
bers are now complaining about Florida's new textbook sav-
ings bill. Gov. Charlie Crist signed into law at the end of last
month a bill that seeks to provide students with the benefit
of time when attempting to procure the best possible deal
as they shop for required reading materials. The new law
mandates that state colleges and universities post textbook
requirements online no later than a month before the begin-
ning of classes.
The idea that this law somehow inconveniences our
esteemed faculty is equally incomprehensible and inconse-
quential. We just can't accept the contention that selecting
next term's textbooks a couple of weeks or months earlier
than usual is an undue burden. And with the cost of a college
education climbing faster than the national debt, students
need all the help they can get.
The textbook industry made an estimated $5.5 billion in
sales for the 2006-2007 academic year. The average college
student spends $900 per year on textbooks, a figure that
amounts to almost 20 percent of tuition and fees at a four-
year public institution. With these kinds of obscene profits
and steep costs, you will excuse us for thinking that someone
is taking us for the proverbial ride, especially when publish-
ers come out with new editions that are more or less identical
to previous versions, just more expensive.
We're not alone. Earlier this year, two students from
Daytona Beach College attempted to sue the Follett Higher
Education Group the largest college textbook store in the
nation for unfairly overpricing course materials. The suit
was dismissed, yet the sentiment remains: College students
are getting screwed by these opportunistic, monopolistic
corporations.
As the nation is mired in an economic downturn that
frighteningly resembles the stagflation era of the 1970s, with
exponential price increases emerging alongside a precipitous
reduction in economic productivity, we welcome innovative
solutions, such as the textbook savings bill, that endeavor to
stop the economic bleeding. But more needs to be done.
First, we call for an investigation of the pricing practices
of textbook publishers and distributors. Second, we ask our
lawmakers to look into the efficacy of placing reasonable
regulations on textbook pricing and buy back policies. Third,
we implore our valued professors to implement e-books and
other online materials that can be easily accessed through
our libraries.
While the textbook savings bill is certainly not some
great panacea, it's a good start to ensuring that students are
treated fairly. We thank the faculty for adjusting to these new
requirements, and we ask them to continue to support efforts
to curb what is becoming the prohibitive cost of a college
education.

Nuclear energy not completely safe
Mr. Hathaway's guest column in
the June 3 edition of the Alligator on
America's energy crisis clearly dem-
onstrates a vast misunderstanding
of the situation, a misunderstanding
that seems to be common among
Americans.
He argues that nuclear power is
an essentially 100 percent safe source
of energy, citing France's predomi-
nant use of it and the fact that only
"a few thousand people" perished
from the tragic 1986 meltdown at
Chernobyl. Mr. Hathaway fails to
mention the fact that a nearly 20-mile
radius around the accident site is still
quarantined and considered unsafe
for any type of life at all.
He goes on to argue that a com-
pletely ethanol-powered America
would use more energy than we
currently do. "Extremist environ-
mentalists" are not necessarily call-
ing for complete reliance on biofuels,
but they are demanding immediate
action to reduce fossil fuel reliance.
The misunderstanding on this point
is that 100 percent conversion is the
only option.
Hybridizing, not full ethanol
transformation, is the first step to
energy independence.

Residents provide paid venue for high school poets


* GHS STUDENTS PERFORM
SPOKEN WORD POETRY.

By CHRISTOPHER MYERS
Alligator Writer

Although the room was filled
with people, silence surrounded
Kyle McCormick as he walked
over to the microphone. He
looked down at a piece of paper
before a burst of poetry erupted
from his mouth.
Among the pristine, white
walls of the Thomas Center, po-
ets like McCormick, a Gainesville
High School senior, gathered to
voice their innermost emotions,
humorous ramblings or freestyle
rhymes.
The Friday event featured
the Gainesville High School
Collective, a group of GHS stu-
dents who attended after-class
poetry workshops run by Lacey
Nagy, the co-founder, producer
and host of ThirdEyeSpoken in
Gainesville.
ThirdEyeSpoken is a spoken-
word production team that tries
to organize poets and provide
them with paid venues.
"When it all comes down to it,
poets will show up and do it for
free," Nagy said. "I set out with
the intention to change that con-
versation."
Nagy has been working with


the GHS students for months.
She also brought in local art-
ists to give the students a chance
to learn a variety of poetry
styles.
McCormick said the work-
shops, besides being fun, helped
him develop his talent with


rhyming.
"My name is Kyle, as you
might already know. Let's give
it up for spoken word, right after
the show. All of my stuff rhymes,
in case you weren't aware. Does
that make me a poet? I'm not sure,
but I don't care," McCormick


said while performing his poem,
"Thomas Center Thing."
He said he originally got into
the GHS program because it was
offering extra credit. However,
when he started learning about
spoken word, he -developed a
taste for it.

Gainesville High School student Jordan House, center, sings and plays guitar while fellow students Chris Yozgat
and Kyle McCormick back him up during Friday night's poetry reading featuring the GHS Poetry Collective.


"When in a jam, rhyme any
way you can," McCormick said,
adding that he intended on start-
ing a spoken word club next year
with the help of other students.
Asia "Asia E." Elliot from
Tampa, who is going to attend
the University of Wisconsin
on a spoken-word scholarship,
headlined for the Thomas Center
event.
Elliot, 18, has been working
with Nagy since she was 13 and
said it is always a pleasure be-
ing involved in one of Nagy's
events.
"Anything that she touches
just ends up turning into this
epic, beautiful thing that touches
so many people," Elliot said.
Nagy said she wanted to cre-
ate the event to reward students
who had given up their free time
and worked so hard on their po-
etry.
With the help of city officials
and a list of other sponsors who
provided catering for the event,
Nagy was able to provide a paid
venue for the students to come
out and perform.
She said the students need to
feel supported so they will keep
performing their spoken word
poetry.
"We wanted to start creating
this, creating a fever for poetry,"
she said.


UF, RTS will both fund GPS program


GPS, from page 1


tracking services at six other
universities, including Auburn
University, the University of
Alabama, Harvard University
and Yale University.
This is the first time TransLoc
has ever provided the service for
a fleet of buses that is operated
by the city and not-the univer-
sity, Bischof said.
UF Transportation and
Parking traffic court reserves,
funded by parking citations, will


"The bus comes every
fifteen minutes, So I just

Andrea Leeth
UF senior

cover the $204,000 cost of the
system for the first year.
The UF transportation access
fee, paid by students, will fund
$110,000 of the $143,000 yearly
cost after that.
RTS will cover the remain-
ing $33,000 with money from


a Florida Department of
Transportation grant.
While waiting for his bus on
Monday, Steven Schulz, a UF
packaging science senior, said he
thinks the bus tracking system is
a win-win situation for students
because it is convenient and
makes routes more efficient.
But Andrea Leeth, also a UF
senior, said she will probably not
use the system.
"The bus comes every fifteen
minutes," Leeth said. "So I just
know to be out here."


Mayor plans to rename plaza for Diddley


MEIIIVIURIAL, from page 1

modern-day rap music.
"This music emerged right out of this area,"
Burdon said about the town in which Diddley
chose to spend the last years of his life.
Diddley's influence on music as well as the
Gainesville area was memorialized all day
Saturday, beginning with a parade and festi-
val in Archer that was renamed Yulee Diddley
Day.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan revealed plans
at the funeral to rename the Downtown
Community Plaza in honor of the artist who
performed there countless times.
Diddley was known for showing up to
play at local bars like Market Street Pub, said
Gainesville resident Todd Webster.


"It's real cool that such a guy was a member
of our own community," said Webster, who
once had a short conversation with the rock
legend after running into him at the Lowe's
Home Improvement store.
Deborah Massie, a musician in the local
band the Folklorries, attended the ceremony
because she said she feels a strong connection
to Diddley's music.
"He once let my friend and I use his record-
ing studio," Massie said. "He just opened his
heart up to everyone, and that's why so many
people are here tonight."

Good has experience as dean


GOOD, from page 1

Now that he is interim dean,
Good's main task is to fill open
chair positions and search for
associate dean positions for
the college's education and re-
search programs.
Good said he views his new
position as working for the de-
partment chairs and faculty.
He said he will encourage
faculty to work in teams across
departments to accomplish the
college's goals of training med-
ical students, providing excel-
lent patient care and research.
"It is the interim dean's job
to keep the college moving
forward and excelling in all its
missions," he said.
Good said he has served as
acting dean many times before,
but he has never had to be
responsible for all of the func-
tions of the Office of the Dean
until now.
"There's nobody on vacation
anymore," Good said.
Good said for the moment,
he is unsure about submitting
his name for consideration to
become the college's perma-
nent dean.


"My attention right now is
focused on the matters of the
college and not about me," he
said.
"Some day we'll cross that
bridge."

"My attention right now is
focused on the matters of
the college and not about
m'e."
Dr. Michael L. Good
College of Medicine's interim
dean


The search for a permanent
dean cannot be initiated yet
anyway because Barrett will
resign from his position to a ca-
reer in pediatrics effective June
30, and the person filling his
position will be responsible for
coordinating the search for the
college's permanent dean.
Barrett's replacement has
not been appointed since he
announced his resignation in
March.
In a Monday e-mail, Machen
wrote that he will announce
plans to fill Barrett's position
at Friday's Board of Trustees
meeting.

Trustees to consider honorary degree for Bo Diddley


Two others may also be recognized with degrees


By KRISTEN HUFF
Alligator Contributing Writer


UF may soon be adding a little "Diddley
bomp" to the "Pomp and Circumstance"
graduation march come the next commence-
ment ceremony for the College of Fine Arts.
UF's Board of Trustees is expected-to ap-
prove an honorary degree for the late musi-
cian Bo Diddley at its Thursday meeting.
Diddley died June 2 of heart failure at the
age of 79.
David Denslow, chairman of the Faculty
Senate's Honorary Degrees, Distinguished
Alumnus Awards and Memorials Committee,
said before Diddley died there was a strong
effort made by the College of Fine Arts to
push his nomination through the approval


process quickly.
"He did not get fair compensation for a lot
of the music he produced for the rhythms
in particular," Denslow said. "Unfortunately,
he was recognized by some of us after he
should have been probably decades."
Denslow said the delay is attributed to
a belated recognition of popular artists in
an academic world where classic refers to
Mozart, not Metallica.
"I don't think they're ready to rap yet, but
they recognize his contribution," he said.
The only obstacle the chairman sees in the
final approval is that recipients must accept
degrees to receive them. Diddley will only
be honored if his family accepts the award
for him.
Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said hon-


ors have been awarded posthumously in the
past, and she does not expect the musician's
death to play a role in the trustees' decision.
Two other nominees are also expected to
be approved for honorary degrees.
"Unfortunately, he was recognized
by some of us after he should
have been probably decades."
David Denslow,
Faculty Senate chairman

Ann Lurie, a graduate of the UF College of
Nursing, was endorsed by the college for an
honorary degree for public service based on
her philanthropic efforts.
Lurie's late husband, a wealthy Chicago


investor, left her millions of dollars to donate
as she saw fit. One of her bigger contributions
was a $100 million check to the Children's
Hospital in Chicago, her new hometown.
She has also spent months in Africa help-
ing to bring modem medical treatment to the
interior of the continent something once
thought impossible, Denslow said.-
The College of Medicine nominated Dr.
Hamilton 0. Smith, whose father was a UF
professor, for his work with genetics and ge-
nomics over the past 40 years.
In 1978, Smith received a Nobel Prize in
Physiology or Medicine as a result of his
revolutionary work with DNA.
Smith's most recent success story came 30
years later when he and a team created a vi-
able organism from scratch, Denslow said.
"They just put it together from nothing
- they created life," he said.


New state textbook law sparks protest, praise at UF


* SOME PROFESSORS SAY
THE LAW IS INCONVENIENT.

By ELIZABETH LEVA
Alligator Writer

Students and faculty are giving
mixed reviews to a new state law
that buys students time to find the
best deals for their textbooks.
The law, signed by Gov.
Charlie Crist on May 28, requires
Florida's community colleges and
public universities to post lists of
the textbooks required for each
class on their Web sites at least 30

Come Sit In On A

SUMMER SENATE

MEETING!



Every Tuesday at 7PM
Room 282 Reitz Union
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC,


days before classes begin.
The law came under criticism
during a discussion at a Faculty
Senate Steering Committee meet-
ing Thursday.
Danaya Wright, UF law profes-
sor, was among the most vocal
critics. She said controlling the af-
fordability of books is an issue for
textbook companies not profes-
sors. The law is nothing short of
"idiotic," she said at the meeting.
"Sometimes you need the new-
est material," Wright said. "If the
best book is the $180 book, that's
still the best book."
Professors generally use the


break before a course begins to
review materials and decide what
to use, she said.
Mark Rush, UF microeconom-
ics professor, said the law would
affect professors differently de-
pending on their course material.
In the 15 years Rush has taught
microeconomics, he has changed
his book requirement less than
five times, he said. Although he
understands some courses require
more up-to-date agendas than his,
he said the level of protest from
faculty perplexed him.
"It's not like they are asking
them to put out their syllabus that


early," Rush said. "Most people's
lives are not so full that they can't
take a little time during a term to
explore what is out there."
Ali Flickinger, UF marketing
senior, said she regularly buys
textbooks on-
UF line, but most of
Academics her professors
don't assign
them until the first day of class.
While Flickinger favors the
discounted prices of textbooks on
Web sites such as Amazon.com,
she said waiting for books to ar-
rive is a major turnoff to online
purchasing.


You have years to be irresponsible here.
Relax. Work is for people with never-
remember class time, but you'll remember time

"This semester I wasn't able
to study for the first quiz in one
of my classes because I hadn't
received the book yet," she said.
"But this law should make all the
difference."
Erica Rakow, UF telecommu-
nications junior,, said shipping
delays hindered her decision to
purchase books online in the past,
but the new law would make her
reconsider.
"You can find them online
10 times cheaper," Rakow said.
"I have never bought textbooks
online before, but now I probably
will."

Cole Figueroa may have heard his name called on
draft day, but his heart isn't set on leaving for the pros
just yet.
The UF shortstop was selected in the sixth round of
Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft by the
San Diego Padres on Thursday. Figueroa said he expected
to go in the first three rounds of the draft, and he had the
opportunity.
"I got a call in the third round from the [Texas]
Rangers," he said. "They wanted it to be straightforward
negotiations where you take the slot, and that wasn't re-
ally what I was looking for, so they went by me."
The Padres also called with an offer for sixth-round
money, and Figueroa again turned it down. So it was
with great surprise that he discovered San Diego had
taken him anyway.
"After the third round, I wasn't really watching," he
said. "I kind of just turned it off and thought I was just
going to come back to school."
Now begins the drawn-out process of negotiations.
Figueroa has until Aug. 15 to make his decision, but said
he'll likely have a good idea of where he stands by the
end of July. For now, he is headed to play in the Cape Cod
League for the summer.
"What I'm doing right now is taking the middle
ground and just acting like I'm coming back to school
and doing the things I would be doing regardless," he
said. "If the offer is there, I might sign, or I might come
back to school anyway.

Ultimate Frisbee ends successful season


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Contributing Writer

The stage was set for a rematch, pitting
the nation's two strongest teams the 2006
and 2007 national champions against
each other to determine which would be
crowned the No. 1 team in the country.
The UF men's Ultimate Frisbee team fin-
ished the 2008 season with a 38-2 record but
fell 15-9 to defending champion Wisconsin
in the UPA Open College Championship in
Boulder, Colo., on May 18.
UF defeated North Texas, Delaware,
Illinois, Arizona and Carleton College to
set up the championship game with the
Wisconsin Hodags a rematch of the 2006
UPA Open College Championship, which
UF won.
Eight of the players on this year's team


were also on the 2006 team, the school's
first Ultimate Frisbee national champions.
UF won the 2006 championship game
against Wisconsin 15-12.
"It was a great feat because we
had never won that tournament
before."
Kurt Gibson
UF co-captain

Kurt Gibson, a UF graduate and one of
the team's two captains, said fewer than 10
people, mostly family and friends, showed
up to support the team in Boulder, Colo. He
said that a small number of fans is common
for most schools, but Wisconsin always
brings a huge group of fans.
Despite the loss, this season was an


overall success for UF. The team won the
Centex tournament at the University of
Texas at Austin. UF had never won the
tournament entering this season, falling
short in a 15-14 loss to Wisconsin in 2006.
"We played Wisconsin, Colorado and
North Carolina right in a row," Gibson said.
"It was a great feat because we had never
won that tournament before."
Gibson added that the team performed
well despite its relatively small roster. Most
teams have 20 to 25 players and large rota-
tions, but UF had only 17 players on the
roster.
"We played a tight rotation, using
mostly nine or 10 guys in games," Gibson
said. "We are a top-heavy team that con-
sists of experienced players but also some
sophomores and juniors that were not on

To Billy Donovan, it's poison.
To Roland Thomqvist, it's the kiss
of death.
Jill Briles-Hinton is OK with talk-

Tim Walton discusses it openly.

sport has to go through: How should
you handle a highly ranked team

bilities?

Then should you talk to the media

Should you say, "We're going to
take it one game at a time" until it's
more natural than Tim Tebow run-
ning over linebackers?
Should you say, "If we don't beat
those pieces of 'crap,' I won't be able
to live with myself?"
I don't know.
And I'm not going to sit here and
tell you in this 600-word space that I
know more than collegiate coaches
- some of whom have been doing
this since I fell in love with the Pink
Ranger when I was 7 years old.
I can sit here and second-guess
these coaches' decisions, and some-
times that's part of my job. But not
this time. This time it's simply ask-
ing, how do you handle champion-
ship pressures?
This is something nearly every UF
coach faces.
Urban Meyer and Billy Donovan
- you better believe they deal with
it. Becky Burleigh and Mary Wise are
expected to dominate not only the
Southeastern Conference but also the
national scene every year. Walton and
Rhonda Faehn have built programs
where not winning it all is a disap-
pointment. Thomqvist even if you
don't know the UF women's tennis
team from FSU's is as dominant

ffator shortstop begins negotiation process with major leagues


BASE, from page 17

"I really like going to the
university. I love playing for our
team, I love the players, I love the
coaches. If I end up coming back
to school, I'll be happy. I definitely
don't want to leave right away. I
feel like we have a lot more to ac-


complish, but, on the other hand,
you kind of have to see what the
future holds for you sometimes."
Figueroa does have pretty good
leverage, as he still has two more
years of eligibility left, which
means he has two more chances to
be drafted. This is something the
Padres are well aware of.
"Hopefully we can convince
him to start his pro career, as he is


a solid left-handed hitting middle
infielder who has terrific instincts
for the game," said
Paul DePodesta, a
front-office assis-
tant for San Diego
BaSeball and former general
manager of the Los
Angeles Dodgers, in his blog on
Thursday. "He's another player
who seemed to raise his game


when it counted the most."
If Figueroa does decide to
sign, it will be a major loss for the
Gators. He started all 58 games
this season and led the team in to-
tal bases (119), RBIs (57) and home
runs (nine). He was also second on
the squad in batting average (.350),
hits (78), runs (61), doubles (12)
and slugging percentage (.534).
Other current Gators who


were drafted include junior Avery
Barnes, who was taken in the
40th round by the Washington
Nationals, and senior Josh
Edmondson, who was chosen
by the Los Angeles Angels of
Anaheim in the 41st round.
Santa Fe Community College
pitcher John Lambert- was also
selected by the Nationals in the
36th round.

as possible year in and year out. Andy Jackson, Gregg
Troy and Mike Holloway have built programs that are
near the top of the country every season. The same can
be said for golf coaches Buddy Alexander and Briles-
Hinton. Kevin O'Sullivan and Amanda Butler are on
the right track and will be leading very attractive pro-
grams soon.
Let's look at the reasons why Meyer and Donovan
succeeded with their squads.
1. They had players who knew more about each oth-
er than themselves. Al Horford knew what size socks
Joakim Noah had, and probably several other unsani-
tary snippets I'm not imaginative enough to think of.
Dallas Baker knew whether Jemalle Cornelius was a
pepperoni or cheese guy. That's step one. You're not
teammates. You're friends. Clich6, but three national
titles in two years speak for themselves.
2. They had role players. Cue Tebow, Chris Richard
and Lee Humphrey. It's weird to think of Tebow as just
a "role player," but that's exactly what he was for the
2006 championship squad. He was the let-me-slap-


your-helmet-while-yelling-in-your-face sparkplug that
Chris Leak wasn't.
The '04s were the stars, but it'd be interesting to see if
they would have even had that nickname if Humphrey
and Richard hadn't played their roles perfectly.
See, the real issue isn't how the coaches do this
- it's how the athletes react to being told they need
to do this. Donovan hasn't gone after every O.J. Mayo
and Derrick Rose, begging them to attend a class every
now and again and play a few games for one year.
Donovan's actually built a team. Meyer and Donovan
don't just recruit athletes, they recruit personalities.
Then it's up to the players to figure out if they're
championship caliber. You bring in championship
players, and you are capable of winning champion-
ships. You can know the Xs and Os of your sport front
to back and have a certain degree of success with it.
But if your athletes aren't gifted or determined enough
to come together and execute, you're not going any-
where.
If you have a coach who understands how to blend
personalities, then you have a complete team. And I
haven't seen any incomplete teams wearing champion-
ship T-shirts recently.


Nine players may return

the championship team in 2006."
The Ultimate Frisbee team is a club sport and is not
recognized or funded by the athletic department. Gibson
said that the team has a budget of about $2,000, and the
rest comes out of the players' pockets. He explained that it
added up to a good deal of money, but it was all worth it.
"We can't use the Gators as our mascot."
Kurt Gibson
UF co-captain

The separation also means that the team had to represent
UF without using the school's signature mascot and team
name.
"We can't use the Gators as our mascot," Gibson said.
"We have to just go by Florida. Some other schools make
up names for themselves, but we take pride in representing
our school."
About nine players from this year's team will return next
year, but the core group will be leaving, and the returning
players will have to step into the openings created by those
who are graduating.
