Tenure-track professor challenges layoff


BY THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

A hearing was held Friday to
determine if UF improperly laid
off Andrea Pham, assistant profes-
sor of Vietnamese language and


linguistics.
A decision on Friday's hearing
should be reached within 60 days.
Pham was one of eight faculty
members and 65 staff given layoff
notices after last year's $47 million
budget cut.
Pham and two others, Czech


language and linguistics assistant
professor Hana Filip and Swahili
language and
UFAcademics literature lectur-
er Rose Lugano,
filed grievances
with UF after they were given
layoff notices, said Angel Kwolek-


Folland, UF's assistant provost.
Pham's grievance is the only
one that has reached the point of
arbitration, which is the third and
final stage of the process.
The grievances filed by Filip and
Lugano are currently in the second
stage and could be resolved before


arbitration, Kwolek-Folland said.
Of seven laid-off faculty mem-
bers in the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences, which had to cut
about $6 million, all were foreign-
born and six were women.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG parties fill


spring tickets
BY CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Three candidates have emerged for Student Body
president, all of which send the message of giving Student
Government a makeover.
New parties who have recently filled their Executive
ticket said they intend to bring SG back to the students
and to stop partisan-based bickering.
The Progress Party announced Sunday it filled its
Executive ticket with senators from both the Gator Party
and the Orange and Blue Party, the only two parties cur-
rently holding seats in Student Senate.
Orange and Blue Party Sen. Ben Dictor, who announced
his intent to run for Student Body president in December,
will run alongside vice-presidential candidate and Gator
Party Sen. Heshan Illangkoon, according to Josh Simmons,
party president.
Simmons said Gator Party Sen. Jose Ortega, who repre-
sents UF's Fisher School of Accounting, will run as Student
Sarah Hsu/ Alligator Staff Body treasurer.
Bowling Benefit Simmons said the Progress Party opted not to interview
candidates but chose them based on past SG experience

As economy fails, many choose grad school over work


By MORGAN COLLINS
Alligator Writer

Recent college graduates are choosing
graduate school over full-time jobs, as the
failing economy makes it more difficult to
find and keep work.
This is not uncommon, UF spokesman
Steve Orlando said.
"You see this when the economy down-


turns and people can't get jobs," he said.
UF is still collecting updated graduate
school application data, but Orlando said UF
graduate school applications have recently
surged. Although budget cuts forced UF to
reduce undergraduate enrollment, graduate
schools are not affected, he said.
Unlike undergraduate programs, UF's
graduate school is not supported by grants
or research funding, two areas that face


cuts.
Students may choose to
further their education in-
stead of facing a job-hunt
in the struggling economy,
but they shouldn't wait un-
til the last minute to make
that choice, said Wayne
Orlando Wallace, the director of
UF's Career Resource Center.


Getting into graduate school is just as
competitive as finding a job. Particularly, as
the number of people competing for admit-
tance rises.
"Everybody can't go to grad school if
they don't like the job market," he said.
Planning for graduate school starts be-
fore senior year, and students should fill out
graduate school and job applications.

2 teens charged with stealing pizzas, wings
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) Police say two female teenag-
ers were arrested on charges of beating a Papa John's delivery man
and stealing dinner they allegedly ordered: pizza, wings and a cheese
steak that cost $55.
Boynton Beach police officers arrested the teenagers Thursday and
found the still-warm pizzas in a closet. Arrested were Valerie Blanc
and Michelle Turner, both 19. A witness told detectives she saw the
two suspects leave the house and attack the pizza delivery man. He
had been trying to deliver three pizzas extra cheese, pepperoni and
ham in addition to a 10-piece order of buffalo wings with blue-
cheese dressing and a 2-liter bottle of Coke when he was attacked.

Ice cream mogul visits
Ice cream fans got a chance to
meet Ben & Jerry's co-founder Jerry
Greenfield at the store's Archer
Road location Friday night.
Greenfield came to kick off the
ice cream chain's new boxed choc-
olates inspired by flavors such as
Imagine Whirled Peace and Phish
Food, said Pete Zimek, the co-own-
er of the Archer Road franchise.
The store is one of eight in the
U.S. selling the chocolates.
Outside the store, the Ben &
Jerry's mascot cow danced and
hugged younger ice cream fans.
"I like eating it and licking it
and letting it melt on my tongue,"
said 4-year-old Piercen Bogolea.
Inside, about 50 people sampled
chocolate and purchased ice cream
cartons for Greenfield to sign.
Greenfield's arrival sent a buzz
through the crowd, as customers
moved to meet him.
"I'm beyond words," said
Greenfield, whose daughter,
Lindsay, is a sophomore at UF. "I'm
happy. I'm thrilled to be here."

Library glass panel breaks
Library West's escalators came
to a halt Friday morning when a
technician broke the inside glass
panel of the up escalator during
a routine maintenance check.
The escalator was shut down,
forcing students to access the
floor above via the library's
single, ground-floor elevator for
most of Friday afternoon. Some
students, unwilling to wait, ran
up the down escalator against
the regular flow of traffic.
Workers constructed a tem-
porary wooden barrier over the
weekend so the escalator could
stay in service.
The company responsible for
the maintenance and the break,

AROUND GAINESVILLE

Gypsies, merchants, jousters among those at Faire


BY CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

He has been called Superman,
but never before has Tim Tebow
been called a knight. And yet, to
the people of Hoggetowne, that is
exactly what he is.
He is a great knight, great of
stature and great among men,
said David Reed, a horn herald for
Hoggetowne's king and queen.
The nation of Hoggetowne
wants to be on good terms with
Tebow and The Gator Nation, he
said.
The two nations mingled
Saturday and Sunday at the 23rd
annual Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire, sponsored by the City of
Gainesville.
The Faire will resume this Friday,
Saturday and Sunday.
The Gator Nation should
know that the members of the
Hoggetowne Medieval Faire are a
bit, well, different.
Instead of capturing children
and selling them as slaves, as a
dishonorable Hoggetowne gypsy
would do, Erinn Rose Koch Riker,
also known as Lady Gypsy Rose,
said she dances and sells jewelry
and handkerchiefs.
Being a gypsy has a mystique to
it, said Lady Gypsy Rose.
"I use that to my advantage,"


she said.
But Vladimir, also a Hoggetowne
gypsy, said there are a lot of miscon-
ceptions about gypsies.
"They're actually very honor-
able people, but their conception of
society is different from everyone
else's," he said.
Artisans and royalty also grace
Hoggetowne.
There's Chelsea Burke, who
owns the Gypsy Tails booth and
sells hair extensions in braided
shades of bubble gum pink, red,
blue and brown.
There's John Hoke, or Sir John
the Rosedipper, who sells waxed
roses that last forever. There's even a
King William and a Queen Caroline,
who have attended a Gator game.
Linda Piper, the Faire's coordinator,
said about 12,000 people attended
on Saturday and 9,000 on Sunday.
The merchants come from as
far as California, Oklahoma and
Tennessee, and each year the Faire
allows them to reunite, Piper said.
Chris Hernandez, 23, a Gainesville
medic, said the Faire is a fun, whole-
some event.
"I guess it's just a simple excuse
for people to unify over a simple
cause," he said.
People watched jousting by the
New Riders of the Golden Age and
saw Kitty Tolson Carroll's Birds of
the Gauntlet program.

UF athlete charged with DU


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
Kemmets@alligator.org

AUF baseball player was arrested and charged
with driving under the influence early Saturday
morning after he was seen swerving into oncom-
ing traffic on West University Avenue.
Stephen Locke, 22, was arrested after he re-
fused to take a field sobriety test.
According to the GainesvillePolice Department
arrest report, a police officer saw the senior pitch-
er driving 10 mph under the speed limit on West
University Avenue in a black Mercury SUV.
Locke swerved across lanes and the double
yellow line, forcing oncoming traffic to swerve to
avoid hitting him, the report stated.
According to the report, GPD Officer Daniel
Surrency watched Locke cross into the outside
lane and into the bicycle lane, almost hitting the


curb.
When Locke was pulled over, Surrency wrote
in the report that he could smell alcohol on
Locke's breath.
According to the report,
Locke's eyes were bloodshot
and watery, and his speech was
slurred.
e Locke swayed while stand-
ing and leaned on his vehicle for
balance when he stepped out
of the car. He was also wearing
Locke an arm band from Grog House,
a bar in midtown.
Because Locke refused to take a field sobri-
ety test, he was arrested and brought into GPD.
Upon arrival, Locke also refused to submit to a
breath test.
Locke was charged with driving under the in-
fluence.

Friends, family hold


memorial for Moses


* ABOUT 320 PEOPLE
GATHERED AT UF HILLEL.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

About 320 people attended
a Friday memorial for Michelle
Moses, 21, a fourth-year UF el-
ementary education major who
died over winter break while
driving home to Mason, Ohio, a
suburb of Cincinnati.
Friends and family shared
memories with a sniffling crowd
on the second floor of UF Hillel
for about 45 minutes, with many
in attendance wearing green
Alpha Epsilon Phi shirts, repre-
senting the sorority Moses be-
longed to.
Walking up to the lectern and
taking a look at the size of the
crowd, Michelle's brother, Ben
Moses, joked, "I always thought
that I was the popular one."
But Moses, a student at the
University of Miami, said he re-
membered the days when his sis-
ter was younger and much more
reserved.


"I remember when I used to
order for her at restaurants be-
cause she was too shy," he said.
He said he and Michelle were
like peas in a pod and never
fought, because Michelle was
"the easiest person in the world
to get along with."
"She loved the world,
loved where she was,
loved who she was with."
Garry Moses
Michelle's father

Michelle's father, Garry Moses,
said his daughter loved her soror-
ity sisters and was proud of her
Jewish heritage.
"She loved the world, loved
where she was, loved who she
was with," he said.
Michael Jellis, Michelle's boy-
friend, said the two could talk
about anything, but there was one
thing they would only whisper to
each other. "But I wanna say it a
bit louder so everyone else can
hear," Jellis told the crowd.
"I love you, Michelle," he said
with his voice trembling. "I'll
miss you for the rest of my life."

UF ACADEMICS

Students compete to improve Architecture Building


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

One college at UF used the cre-
ativity of its students last week to
save between $1,000 and $2,500 in
10 hours.
Rather than hiring profession-
als, groups affiliated with UF's
College of Design, Construction
& Planning asked students to
participate in an intensive de-
sign session aimed at improv-
ing the Architecture Building's


work spaces. Forty-three students
worked from noon to 10 p.m. on
Wednesday, during the "Pride in
Place Charrette".
They came from a variety of
specializations, including archi-
tecture, interior design, landscape
architecture and urban and re-
gional planning. Students worked
in groups of up to three people to
design an outdoor seating area,
studio work station or an area to
hang banners advertising for the
college. Each design was limited to


"It wasn't something we
were forced to do. We were
all there willing to do that."
Dorota Tomaszewska
UF interior design junior

a budget of $10,000.
"The value of a charrette is that
you get a lot of very different ideas
very quickly," said UF Professor
Tina Gurucharri, interim chair in
the department of landscape archi-
tecture.


The top two designs, to be cho-
sen by some faculty and students
from the college, will be announced
today. The first-place design will
be awarded $750, while second
place will receive $250. One win-
ning project will be put to use.
Student involvement in the
manufacturing and installation of
the project will depend on the de-
sign selected, said Peggy Carr, the
college's associate dean for under-
graduate students and academic
affairs. Some students said the ex-


perience went beyond just having
monetary value.
Dorota Tomaszewska, a UF in-
terior design junior, said the char-
rette was a great experience be-
cause it allowed her and a fellow
interior design major to work and
share ideas with a landscape archi-
tecture major.
"And also it wasn't for a
grade," Tomaszewska said. "It
wasn't something we were forced
to do. We were all there willing to
do that."


Collectors show off unique items at UF museum event


* ITEMS INCLUDED SPATULAS,
ARMADILLOS AND LIGHT SABERS.

BY CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Over 70 collectors showcased every-
thing from Simpsons' toys and spatulas to
political buttons and World War II memo-
rabilia Saturday at the Florida Natural
History Museum's 30th Annual Collectors
Day.
Saturday's event took over both the in-
side and outside of the museum, as collec-


tors sat behind eight-foot-long tables filled
with prized possessions, while the largest
collection of restored automobiles packed
the circular driveway.
The event was created to highlight how
collections are the foundation of a mu-
seum, said Tiffany Ireland, the museum's
education assistant.
Co-coordinator of the event, Kelly
Donovan, agreed.
"(Collecting is) a science, but it doesn't
have to be stuffy," said Donovan.
While some displays held more tra-
ditional treasures such as stamps and bi-
bles, others were dedicated to pop culture


icons.
Light sabers and a Darth Vader mask
made up Christina and Sean Geiger's col-
lection, for example.
The couple, who met at a
On Star Wars convention, now
Campus has a collection valued at
about $50,000.
"People say our house is a Star Wars
museum," Christina Geiger said.
Other collections were a little more
rare.
Bonnie Bernau sat behind a table filled
with various figures of armadillos.
Bernau has been collecting them since


1981, after she struggled through a diffi-
cult time in her life.
"It's a metaphor for taking care of
yourself," said Bernau, who has a tin full
of a crushed armadillo shell taken from a
Georgian roadside. "I always remember
not to get squashed on the highway of
life."
Don Dekeid, 68, who has attended
Collectors Day for a number of years, said
he enjoys the stories behind the collec-
tions.
"It gives you an exposure to people's
interests and what they've done over the
years," he said.

we could've had our ice cream scooped by a living legend.
From flavors like Cherry Garcia to Phish Food, the ex-
hippies Ben & Jerry have concocted some of the best waist-
line expanding desserts known to man. While we certainly
don't mind the occasional jaunt to Cold Stone Creamery or
The Gelato Company, there is something to be said about
Ben & Jerry's overload of mix-ins guaranteed in every bite.
We can only imagine how cool it would have been to talk
with Greenfield about the humble beginnings of setting up
an ice cream shop at an abandoned gas station in Vermont.
Greenfield is living the dream no longer involved
with the day-to-day operations of the company he is free
to travel the country promoting the brand and relishing in
his celebrity.
Whether it's a midnight run to the The Pantry at the lo-
cal Kangaroo or getting a cone at the store on University
Avenue, there is no denying that Ben & Jerry's is an ice
cream institution college students will continue to crave for
generations to come.
Excuse us while we put down our pints and make our-
selves a garden salad.


Budget bully


To find signs of the
failing economy, you
don't have to look
much further than the cur-
rent budget crisis at UF.
As courses are cut and
professors lose their jobs, the
Editorial Board wants to en-
sure situations like the one
surrounding Andrea Pham
don't become commonplace.
Pham, a Vietnamese lan-
guage and linguistics assis-
tant professor, is challenging
the decision by the univer-
sity to relieve her from her
duties at UF.
Her argument stems from
the fact that language in her
contract dictates that faculty
members with the least se-
niority should be the first to
lose their positions.
As a linguistics professor
in addition to Vietnamese
instructor, Pham suggests
she could have taught other


classes that are still being of-
fered at UF.
Contending the layoff vi-
olates the terms of her union
contract. Pham had an ar-
bitration hearing on Friday
with hopes of reversing her
fate.
While the Editorial Board
understands the process of
laying off professors and
eliminating classes is cer-
tainly not an easy one, we
would hope Pham did not
unfairly lose her job.
With seven years at the
university, Pham clearly has
made a positive impact at
the university and seemingly
was on the right path toward
receiving tenure.
We can't help but ques-
tion why did Pham suffer
such a fate when there were
eight other individuals in her
department with less experi-
ence than her?

Column

FOX News ascends from media gutter


Within a time frame of three days last week,
President Barack Obama symbolically undid
many of '43's more controversial policies.
Lifting the ban on federal funding for stem cell re-
search. Check. Ending the "Abortion Gag-Rule," where
U.S. monies were forbidden to fall into the coffers of
international organizations that provided information
about abortion. Check. Signing an executive order clos-
ing the Gitmo detention camp and placing a hold on "en-
hanced interrogation techniques." Check.
MSNBC and CNN's graphic lackeys may toil away
on all the "First 100 Days" images they want, but Obama
seems intent on sprinting to the arbitrary finish line.
He had such a marathon last week in halting many of
President George W. Bush's policies, that I can't watch
my favorite television networks anymore. MSNBC and
CNN, or the "liberal media elite" as Gov. Sarah Palin
labeled them, have gone bonkers with coverage of
Obamamania.
So far, CNN's most vocal complaint has been that
Yo-Yo Ma's performance at the inauguration was prere-
corded.
MSNBC is even worse. On inauguration day, Chris
Matthews announced to his audience that MSNBC was
now the Obama network.
Of course, MSNBC and CNN are no different from the
other standard-bearers in the print-liberal media elite.
The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and other
bastions of journalism are simply following the political
climate: Obama's approval ratings are historically high
for an incoming president, and Bush's ratings leaving of-
fice are historically low.
Actually, the landscape is strikingly similar to the


weeks following 9/11, when
President Bush's cowboy de-
meanor comforted the nation,
and his very rash and diplomati-
cally insidious taunts to capture
the terrorists "dead-or-alive" only
Matthew Christ served to shore up his image as
letters@alligatororg the supreme commander in chief.
This, of course, made his pleads
for Americans to "go shopping"
all the more moving.
Journalistic objectivity was lost in the months after
9/11 and in the lead up to the Iraq War in March of 2003.
The social and political climate demanded retribution for
the horrific attacks helping FOX News make its name
and creating a bias favoring the Bush administration's
handling on just about everything. Not to mention secur-
ing exclusive interviews with the president and his shifty
vice along the way.
Now, just as our past presidential election demanded
change from the Bush Era, MSNBC and CNN find them-
selves as the new preferred networks of the administra-
tion, willing to sacrifice objectivity for ratings.
It is in this spirit, that for the first time last week, I
switched from my preferred liberal media outlet over
to FOX News, home of the sniveling and arrogant Bill
O'Reilly. Unfortunately, from FOX News, I did enjoy
some final objectivity to judge the man not the super-
man sitting in the Oval Office.
Just don't expect me to buy a T-shirt from the online
"O'Reilly Store" anytime this decade.
Matthew Christ is a political science freshman. His column
appears on Mondays.

Today's question: Is MSNBC the Friday's question: Is society too
new FOX News? dependent on technology?

Letters to the Editor
Obama foreign policy nothing new
Over the weekend, President Barack
Obama authorized missile strikes into
Pakistan that killed 21 people, mostly ci-
vilians.
The Pakistani government has urged
the United States to stop these strikes and
respect the sovereignty of the country.
However, Obama has signaled no in-
tention to do so.
Although Obama has made many im-
provements over the Bush administra-
tion in several issues, most notably with


Guantanamo Bay, his actions in Pakistan
have shown that he is not going to substan-
tially deviate from the imperialist policies
set by his predecessor.
In addition, he has promised to escalate
the war in Afghanistan, something that
can only result in more antagonism from
the Middle East and the creation of a new
generation of terrorists.
Anyone who values peace needs to
seize this opportunity to pressure Obama
to keep the promises he made during the
campaign to change the direction of United


States foreign policy.

Towing company lacks compassion
Cheers to Hunter Sizemore and the
Alligator for calling out Ultimate Towing.
We were all extremely disturbed to read
how Ashley Gregg was recently treated by
one of their drivers.
Even though we were not there to witness
the incident as it unfolded, it is very easy for


us to imagine the completely rude and dis-
respectful manner she was spoken, to as we
watch it happen all the time.
We have often been accused of this same
thing, but it is usually warranted, and we
don't steal cars.
The fact that Gregg is physically disabled
makes this even more appalling.
We are offended as longtime Gainesville
residents and as humans.
Gregg deserves an apology and much
more from Driver No. 426 and Ultimate
Towing.

8 faculty, 65 staff members fired last year


HEARING, from page 1
But Pham's attorney, Tom Brooks,
dropped a discrimination charge
early in Friday's hearing.
After the hearing, Pham said that
she has filed a discrimination com-
plaint with the Florida Commission
on Human Relations, which is better
suited to hear those charges.
Her attorney instead argued that


UF broke its contract with the United
Faculty of Florida, the faculty union.
Under the contract, Brooks ar-
gued, UF could
U F only eliminate
Academics certain organi-
zational units,
like departments or programs, and
the two Vietnamese courses Pham
teaches that are being cut did not
constitute a proper organizational


unit.
Brooks also argued that there
were others in Pham's department
with less experience.
Pham, a tenure-track professor
who is in her seventh year at UF, is
scheduled to lose her job on June 10.
She said she likes UF and hopes she's
allowed to stay and attain tenure.
"That's what I'm fighting for,"
she said.


Three candidates chosen promise SG change


SG, from page 1
He said the Progress Party will hold a informative
rally in Plaza of the Americas today at 1 p.m.
Meanwhile, after interviewing nine applicants on
Friday, the Unite Party announced its vice presidential
candidate, Larnell Vickers, along with Maryam Laguna,
candidate for Student Body treasurer on Sunday. Both
candidates have been involved with SG in the past.
Unite Party President William Harrell said the party
sought hard workers with long-term goals.

the party agreed with its mantra, such as Budgets and
Appropriations Committee Chairman Sen. Brandon
White of the Gator Party.
"I want to get happy people in Student Government.
It's become so serious," said White, who interviewed for
treasurer.
The Orange and Blue Party's candidate for Student
Body President, Mark McShera, will begin interviews on
Jan. 30 to choose his running mates.
So far, nine parties have registered for this year's elec-
tion, including the LAN Party and the Keg Party, accord-
ing to Supervisor of Elections Dan Siegel. Registration

Dwindling jobs raise

graduate applications

ADMISSIONS, from page 1
By spring break, most students should know what
they're doing after graduation.
"If you don't get accepted and you don't get a job,
then after you graduate you're home with mom,"
Wallace said.
Stephanie DeLisser, a first-year UF graduate stu-
dent, said the slumping job market played a role in
her decision to apply to graduate school.
Delisser, 22, had trouble finding jobs with entry-
level positions in her field of drug rehabilitation coun-
seling.
"It was frustrating," she said.
She enrolled in graduate school to get more experi-
ence and become more competitive.
But she said students who don't choose to continue
their education have other options.
They could consider internships, work outside
their preferred field, or even commute for work,
DeLisser said.
"Just keep trying," she said.

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

Lucas' three kills chances for Mississippi comeback


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

It's hard to relax for even just a
couple minutes in the Southeastern
Conference.


After dominating for 33 minutes
on Sunday and building a 23-point
lead, UF looked like it could have
just mailed it in with 6:38 remain-
ing.
The Gators appeared to do
just that, and 2 1/2 minutes later,


Mississippi (13-7, 2-3 SEC) had the
lead down to 10 with 4:08 left.
Freshman guard Trumae Lucas
did her part to seal the win, nailing a
three from the comer just moments
later and propelling No. 15 UF (18-
2, 4-1 SEC) to a 75-54 victory against


Katie Iscnopp/ Alligator
UF guard Trumae Lucas fights past Mississippi defenders during the Gators' 75-54 win against the Reb-
els in the O'Connell Center on Sunday.


the Rebels in front of 4,623 fans, the
eighth-largest crowd in O'Connell
Center history.
"I just knew that we had to keep
playing aggressive and that they
were going to trap on the wings,"
Lucas said. "(Sha) Brooks found me
and I knocked it down."
With Brooks having an off day
shooting, Lucas picked up the slack
on both ends of the flooring, tallying
13 points and four steals.

"It goes back to us re-
ally having confidence in
our bench. It allows us to
play as aggressively as we
want."
Amanda Butler
UF women's basketball coach


"I always have to be ready,"
Lucas said. "You can never count on
one person to carry the team, so I'm
always ready to step up or do what-
ever the team needs me to."
The key to UF's success all sea-
son has been jumping out on teams
early.
Sunday was no different, as the
Gators opened a 12-point lead eight
minutes into the game, thanks most-
ly to Marshae Dotson's effort.
The senior forward scored UF's
first 9 points.
"We know as a group that we are
our best when we are up on our toes
and when we're setting the tone and
when we're coming out ... swinging


first and hopefully landing that first
punch," UF coach Amanda Butler
said.
Butler was most proud of her
team's ability to be balanced and
consistent.
All 10 players who saw action
scored, and four were in double fig-
ures.
"It's really hard to key on one
thing to beat us," Butler said.
The Gators outrebounded the
Rebels by 10, something Butler said
was the biggest contributing factor
in the win.
UF has locked down defensively
in the last three games as well, hold-
ing its three opponents to 54, 45 and
63 points, respectively.
Mississippi coach Renee Ladner
said her team took a beating from
UF's physical style of play, a testa-
ment to the Gators' toughness de-
fensively.
"It goes back to us really having
confidence in our bench," Butler
said. "It allows us to play as aggres-
sively as we want."
Ladner also gave her assessment
of where the Gators stand right
now.
"They're playing with a lot of
confidence and a lot of swagger,"
said Ladner, a former UF assistant.
"The crowd was a big factor. I give a
lot of credit to Florida, though. They
popped us in the mouth."
"Florida is one of the top teams
in our conference," Ladner added. "I
definitely would agree with that."


UF track teams show home crowd first-rate performance


* CARLOS PHILLIPS WON FIRST
PLACE IN THE 800-METER RUN.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

The O'Connell Center resembled The
Swamp during the men's 4x400-meter re-
lays: You could not hear yourself breathe,
if you even had time to breathe, and you
definitely could not hear a pin drop.
Fans' cheers engulfed the building and
willed UF's primary men's relay team to a
first-place finish and an NCAA provisional
qualifying time of 3:09.38.
"The relays, especially the 4x400, that's
our tradition, we have to win it," senior
Carlos Phillips said. "It's our home track,
so we can't let somebody come in and take
our trophy."
Phillips ran the second leg of the relay
and finished the day with another provi-
sional qualifying time, in the 800-meter run.


He took first place with a time of 1:49.86 in
the 800.
"Carlos has just gotten a little bit better
each and every year," coach Mike Holloway
said. "He's a senior leader, and we expect
that from him."
Junior sprinter Terrell Wilks, after com-
ing off an average performance against
Kentucky, shined in front of the home
crowd.
Wilks ran a provisional qualifying time
of 6.25 seconds to capture second place in
the 55-meter dash.
He also placed fifth in the 200-meter
dash, and ran the third leg on UF's fourth-
place 4x400 men's relay team.
"For me personally, today was better than
last week," Wilks said. "The team overall, I
think we did better than last week, too."
Mariam Kevkhishvili, a junior shot-put-
ter, outdid her NCAA automatic-qualifying
throw from the Kentucky Invitational.
Kevkhishvili threw the shot 56 feet,


more than 3 feet farther than her teammate,
Keely Medeiros, who took second place.
"I can do so much better than I did today,
I know it's coming," Kevkhishvili said.
Holloway applauded Kevkhishvili's
consistency.
"I'm always impressed with Mariam be-
cause it's not easy to do that every week"
Holloway said. "We are very pleased but
not satisfied with where
she is. Neither is she satis-
fied, that's why she's the
NCAA defending cham-
pion."
UF had solid field per-
formances from Fidela
James, who took home sec-
Phillips ond place in the women's
weight throw, Jenna Utecht, who finished
fifth in high jump, and Janicia McFadden,
who was 10th in the women's long jump.
Natalie Moser took second place in
women's pole vault with the vault at 12


feet, 11.5 inches. Daisy Glasser came in
sixth, Lauren Menke took seventh and Alex
Black tied for ninth.
In the men's pole vault, at 16 feet, 0.75
inches, Justin Semeyn took third place
while Eric Foran and Gray Horn finished
fifth and tied for eighth, respectively.
Beau Burroughs threw the shot 56 feet,
3.75 inches to take third place in the shot
put and Joshua Postell was fifth in the triple
jump.
The track events proved to be more suc-
cessful on the day for the Gators.
In the 3,000-meter run, Charlotte
Browning ran a 9:45.32 to take second place,
Jacy Kruzel came in fourth, Sara Petrick was
fifth and Laura Garrow took sixth.
On the men's side, Jeremy Hall took
fourth place in the 55 dash and Michael
Anderson was fourth in the men's 3,000-
meter run.
"I thought we had a very good day today,
solid across the board," Holloway said.


Recruiting class' low ranking caused by abundance of returning players


RANKING, from page 16
everyone is returning, so you can only bring in as many kids as
you have scholarships for," ESPN analyst Tom Luginbill said.
The Scout and Rivals rankings are based on a formula, with
teams receiving points for their number of recruits and the rat-
ings of those players. UF has 16 commitments so far, the lowest
number of the top 25 on both Web sites, and there's simply no
room for a boatload of recruits.
The Gators should return 67 scholarship players for next
year (barring anyone else leaving the team this off-season),


which leaves 18 open slots for incoming recruits.
UF already has six recruits enrolled in school, leaving 12
scholarships to fill by National Signing Day on Feb. 4, and 10
of those spaces are occupied by verbal commit-
ments.
ESPN values UF's recruiting class higher than
competing Web sites, ranking it No. 5 in large
FOotbl part because, as Luginbill says, recruiting isn't
just a numbers game.
"I actually think the class is really strong," he
said. "I think they're doing a great job filling needs, and (high-
ly-touted receiver) Andre Debose was a huge, huge pickup just


because of the departure of Percy Harvin. Filling needs, more
than anything else, should truly be the factor that people look
at when you talk about a recruiting class."
Luginbill lists the nation's top-rated outside linebacker
(Maryland native Jelani Jenkins) and comerback (Alabama's
Dre Kirkpatrick) as strong possibilities to land in Gainesville.
"I think it's a very strong class, and in fact, I would venture
to say that along with Alabama, Florida might have the most
to gain in terms of being in on some top prospects going down
the stretch here as anybody between now and signing day,"
Luginbill said. "I think we could be having this conversation
on Feb. 5 and saying, 'Wow.'"

UF GYMNASTICS

No. 1 Gators fall hard to Hogs


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

The No. 1-ranked UF gymnas-
tics team had never lost a meet
to Arkansas. They were 18-0
lifetime against the Razorbacks
heading into Friday night's
meet. That's when the Hogs
fought back.
No. 8 Arkansas (3-1, 1-0
Southeastern Conference) upset
the Gators, winning 196.375-
195.425 in Fayetteville, Ark.
UF (2-1, 1-1 SEC) produced its
lowest score of the season and
once again struggled on balance
beam.
Three Gators Amanda
Castillo, Corey Hartung and
Alicia Goodwin fell off beam,
forcing the team to count two of
its falls toward the final beam
score (47.90).
"Having three falls at the
end those situations are not
acceptable from our upperclass-
men because they've had experi-
ence," UF coach Rhonda Faehn
said.
Heading into beam, the Gators
held a 0.525 lead over Arkansas.
Troubles on beam coupled with
the Hogs' floor exercise score of
49.375 doomed the Gators.
"They have to use this like
our football team used the Ole
Miss competition," Faehn said.
"This is what's going to light
a fire underneath them to get
back into the gym."


The Razorbacks claimed three
event titles (vault, floor and
beam). Once again, uneven bars
was the Gators' saving grace.
They scored a 49.175 on bars.
The injury bug's impact shone
through brighter than ever dur-
ing the meet.
Injuries to Rebekah Zaiser,
Amanda Castillo and now, fresh-
man Nicole Ellis have all caused
the team to scramble to make
appropriate lineup changes.
Ellis performed on beam
against Auburn, but hip surgery
from last summer flared up at
the last minute, forcing the beam
lineup to change again.

"They may think they're
training hard. The coach-
ing staff, we don't feel
that they are training hard
enough."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach

"We have to get some athletes
healthy because we're strug-
gling to put a lineup out there
on the floor, especially on bal-
ance beam," Faehn said.
Freshman Elizabeth Mahlich
debuted as an all-around per-
former. After meets in which she
had performed exhibitions, she
was promoted to the all-around
category.
Mahlich finished the meet


with an all-around score of
39.325. The score was highest
among the Gators and good for
third overall.
Mahlich's performance
wasn't the only freshman first.
Kailey Tissue made her com-
petitive debut for UF, anchoring
vault. Tissue scored a 9.875, plac-
ing her in a tie for third overall
along with teammate Maranda
Smith.
Courtney Gladys also stepped
up in light of a thinner Gators
team. Gladys placed second
overall on beam with a 9.875.
"I was really proud of
Courtney for coming in on
beam," Faehn said. "She did a
beautiful job, and she has po-
tential do to that every single
time."
Faehn is hoping the first loss
of the season reveals the team's
lack of training, some of which
is due to injuries.
"They may think they're
training hard," Faehn said. "The
coaching staff, we don't feel that
they are training hard enough."
Faehn is just waiting to see
how her team responds to a loss
and hopes the team takes the
loss in stride.
"This is a wake-up call,"
Faehn said. "You cannot get lazy,
you cannot get complacent. This
is a great gymnastics team, but
you cannot expect miracles to
happen on the competition floor
if you don't put in the practice."

UF builds confidence with upset shutout against Baylor


* CARLOS CUETO CLINCHED THE
MATCH WITH HIS VICTORY.

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

In its second match of the season, the
UF men's tennis team knocked off a top-10
team.
The Gators (2-0) defeated No. 7 Baylor
7-0 on Sunday in front of an amped-up
Linder Stadium crowd.


"We needed some confidence, and
we've earned some confidence against a
very good team," UF coach Andy Jackson
said. "We also, frankly, understand that if
we played again it could easily be 6-1, 7-0
(in Baylor's favor)."
The Bears (1-1) presented the challenge
Jackson said the No. 10 Gators need.
The match-clinching victory came from
Carlos Cueto, whose play lifted spectators
to their feet.
The freshman defeated Baylor's Denes
Lukacs 6-0, 0-6, 6-3 on court No. 1.


"After he won the first set, he made the
big mistake of looking at the scoreboard,"
Jackson said of Cueto's dropped second
set. "Once you do that,
f you distract yourself, your
level goes down a bit and
the other guy gets all over
Tennis you"
Cueto admitted to the
blunder, saying he felt too
relaxed after the quick start.
"In the first set, (Lukacs) was reaching
and was really long and really deep," he


said. "But the second set, he was hitting
balls really short. I was playing far behind.
When the ball's going deep, that's good.
But when they're just bouncing there, he
could do whatever he wanted with the
ball."
Yelling "Vamos!" the left-handed Cueto
got his one-handed backhand working
again in the deciding set and was met with
roars of approval.
"Carlos was able to dig really, really
deep and push through and get a win
against a very good player," Jackson said.


Four players score


in double figures

PARSONS, from page 16
thrived behind the arc, going 15 for 25.
"We have a lot of guys who can shoot the three,"
Erving Walker said. "When we get good looks, we ex-
pect to knock them down."
Walker, who scored a career-high 17 points, was one
of four Gators to score in double figures.
Walter Hodge made his way into the stat sheet with
10 points in the first half but failed to get on the board
in the second.
Vanderbilt center A.J. Ogilvy played only 15 minutes
and scored just 4 points in the game.
The Australian big man was slowed by plantar fascii-
tis, an inflamed tendon in the bottom of the foot.
"You could tell something was wrong with him,"
Donovan said. "He just wasn't himself."


Team heeds advice to shoot with confidence


SHOOTING, from page 16
affect the way they played against the Commodores.
"I had to settle down a little bit," Calathes said. "But
we settled down and got the offense going. We ran the
ball, and I think we tired them down a little bit."
Walker, who had a career-high 17 points, noted the
importance of the win for the Gators, who are off to a 4-1
start in Southeastern Conference play.
"We needed this win in the worst way," Walker said.
"We didn't want to drop to 3-2, and we wanted to show
that we could win on the road."
Walker said UF coach Billy Donovan continued to
stress the importance of shooting with confidence be-
fore the game. And going forward, it will be difficult for
UF to be anything but confident after shooting 60 per-


cent from 3-point range for the game, including 12-of-18
shooting in the first half.
"You're always concerned when you are on the road
in this league and you have a big lead," Donovan said.
"You don't know how your team is going to respond.
We were able to get off to a good start in the second half
and build upon our lead, which gave us more confi-
dence and more momentum."
Although the Gators had only seven 3-point attempts
in the second half, their offensive attack did not lighten
up.
After halftime, UF instead focused on getting into the
lane and attacking the basket.
"It wasn't so much that our shots were wide open or
uncontested," Donovan said. "We had so many guys at
different spots making shots that it stretched the floor
more than Vanderbilt wanted."

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Parsons lights up Vandy


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

NASHVILLE, Tenn. A sleepless
night for Chandler Parsons led to a long
day for the Commodores.
The sophomore scored a career-high
27 points and shot 7 for 8 from 3-point
range as No. 24UF (17-3,4-1 Southeastern
Conference) beat Vanderbilt (12-7, 1-4
SEC) 94-69 in Memorial Gymnasium.
Parsons' missed free throw in the
final seconds UF's game against South
Carolina on Wednesday cost his team a
win.
Sunday, he led the Gators to their
biggest victory of the season.

"It feels good to come into a
hostile environment on the
road and come away with one
in a must-win situation."
Chandler Parsons
UF sophomore forward


"When you have the rhythm going,
and a little momentum is going your
way, it's pretty easy," Parsons said. "It
feels good to come into a hostile envi-
ronment on the road and come away
with one in a must-win situation."
When the Gators returned home from
Columbia, S.C., a little after 2:30 a.m.
Thursday morning, most of Parsons'
teammates went to bed.
He spent the night in the UF practice
facility trying to shoot away the memo-
ry of his mistake.


"He went from a kid on Wednesday
in the locker room crying his eyes out to
the best game of his career," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "I tried to explain
to him, that's how fragile all this stuff is.
In one game you can go from the low-
est point of your basketball career to an
extremely high moment."
UF went 1 for 3 from 3-point range in
the second half against South Carolina.
Parsons opened the game against
Vanderbilt by making five in a row.
"I think Chandler has a great op-
portunity to grow from this," Donovan
said. "You talk about the emotional roll-
er coaster that he's been through from
Wednesday to Sunday. It's a lot. We'll
see how he handles this."
Parsons, who seemingly couldn't
miss Sunday, has struggled to shoot the
ball all season.
Coming into the game, he was shoot-
ing just 27 percent from 3-point range.
"(Chandler) is one of the best shoot-
ers in the country. He's just been in
a slump," sophomore guard Nick
Calathes said.
"I told him he's thinking about it too
much, and to just shoot the ball the way
he has been and they would fall."
The Gators broke the UF record
for threes in a half when Calathes (15
points) hit the Gators' 12th of the game
with the buzzer sounding just before
halftime.
UF went 1 for 15 from three in last
year's 61-58 loss to the Commodores in
Nashville. This time around, the Gators

* UF HIT 12 3-POINTERS
IN THE FIRST HALF.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. The
last time the Gators took the
court, they lost courtesy of
South Carolina's late-game
theatrics. Saturday, UF put on a
show of its own.
The Gators lit up the score-
board in the first half, hitting
a school-record 12 3-pointers,
five of which came from for-


ward Chandler Parsons, who
finished with a career-high
27 points in UF's 94-69 win
against Vanderbilt.
When
we're hitting
like that, it'll
be tough
to beat us,"
guard Nick
Calathes
said.
Walker Parsons
and guard Erving Walker re-
bounded from the loss to the
Gamecocks by scoring 15 each
in the first half. Parsons start-
ed out a perfect 5 for 5 before


shooting his only miss of the
game, a deep 3-pointer, with
2:44 remaining in the first half.
"It was just one of those
days, man," Walker said.
"Our shots were falling, and
Chandler was hot."
Two other Gators -
Calathes (10) and Walter Hodge
(10) scored in double figures
before the break as well.
Calathes, who had three
first-half turnovers within the
span of one minute, said UF's
main focus entering the game
was not to let the emotional loss

Small class misleads

At first glance, UF's recruiting
class is a bit puzzling.
Coming off two national titles in
three seasons, with one of the sport's
hottest coaches in Urban Meyer, big-
time media attention and a super-
star quarterback in Tim Tebow, the
Gators would figure to smash their
opponents on the recruiting trail.
Instead, UF has the country's
ninth-ranked recruiting class ac-


cording to Rivals.com and the No.
12 group on Scout.com one spot
behind Stanford. That's
a peculiar drop after the
Gators hadn't finished
out of the top three
Fo l classes on Rivals.com
since 2005.
But the Gators'
lower ranking is more of a quality-
over-quantity issue than a dip in the
team's ability to attract top talent.
"If you look at that team, almost
