Gainesville tame for Super Bowl Sunday
0 FEW PEOPLE FELT STRONG TIES TO
EITHER TEAM.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

As championship games go, Super Bowl
XLIII was a relaxed affair in Gainesville.
Many residents watched the game at
home with friends and few stuck to die-hard
allegiances as the Pittsburgh Steelers took on
the Arizona Cardinals.
"This is more of a house party kind of
day," said Hoss Rice, a manager at Gator's
Dockside.

STUDENT LIFE

Crisis alters aid status


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Rising unemployment and falling
income may cause more UF students
to change their financial aid status
during the 2009-2010 academic year,
according to UF officials.
Family income could decrease be-
tween the time students apply for aid
and the time it is disbursed, moving
many to have their financial aid sta-
tus reevaluated.
"We are anticipating that as
more and more people become un-
employed, the chances of having


students petitioning is going to be
greater," said Rick Wilder, the associ-
ate director of financial aid advising
for UF's Office for Student Financial
Affairs.
Students who have their financial
status reevaluated could receive aid
that they were previously ineligible
for, Wilder said.
Students should apply for finan-
cial aid as early as possible so they
have a better chance of getting the
financial aid package they want, he
said.

With only 32 teams in the NFL, there
are not many fans in Gainesville who have
a strong attachment to any given team, he
said.
Gator's Dockside provided food for par-
ties, selling take-out bags of 500 chicken
wings for $220, which is $159 less than menu
price. They also had a smaller, 100-wing bag.
Dockside sold about 10 of the large orders
and 30 of the smaller orders, Rice said.
Faren Hely, one of the few cheering the
Cardinals at Dockside, sported a San Francisco
49ers jersey and was there to support her di-

Man makes bomb threats


A Gainesville man was arrested Friday in
connection with a false bomb threat posted
to the Alachua County Sheriff's Office Web
site.
At 7:34 p.m. on Thursday, Joshua Cheek,
18, typed that there were explosives in the
Alachua County Civil, Criminal and Federal
Courthouses, an ACSO news release stated.
The three courthouses were searched but
nothing was found, according to the release.
On Friday morning, a man noticed Cheek
typing another bomb threat on an Alachua
County Library computer. The library staff
called 911 and locked the computer terminal


so they could gather information about the
threat, the report stated.
Detective Thom Kinsey identified Cheek
when he walked out of the
Local library, based on library em-
News ployees' descriptions. Cheek
immediately told Kinsey that
he did not mean to make the threats and also
admitted to posting a threat Thursday night.
Cheek was charged with making a false
report of planting an explosive device.
This is not the first time Cheek made a
bomb threat, according to the report.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG parties begin interviews to fill 50 Senate seats


BY CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer
Students began interviewing for
spots on Student Government party
tickets Friday.
About 97 students came by to
register with a party in hopes of be-
coming a candidate for one of the 50
available Student Senate seats that
represent UF's colleges.
Four out of the seven regis-
tered parties conducted interviews:
Orange and Blue, LAN, Progress
and Unite, said Supervisor of
Elections Dan Siegel.
"There were a lot of young-
er students, which is good
to see. They'll play a role in
shaping Student Govern-
ment in the future."
Jordan Johnson
Student Body
Presidential candidate

The Gator, Keg and Swamp par-
ties opted to not participate, he said.
About 30 students registered
with the Orange and Blue Party,
about 25 registered with the Progress
Party and about 40 registered with
the Unite Party, according to party
leaders.
"We've had a pretty high turn-
out," said Siegel, who described the
first day as normally the slowest.
During the eight hours of inter-
viewing in the Reitz Union, students
walked around and spoke with par-
ty representatives before choosing


which parties to interview with.
UF sophomore Russell Ward
said he settled on the Unite Party
because of its bipartisan vision.
Other students who showed up
for interviews had already decided
which parties to inteview with. UF
freshman Nick Alsaka interviewed
with the Progress Party because he
felt it bridged party lines, he said.
This was because Progress con-
sisted of former members of the
Gator Party and the Orange and
Blue Party the two parties that
currently hold power in Senate.
"It's something new," he said.
"It's not the same old ways."
Orange and Blue Party and Unite
Party leaders said they expected a
full ticket by the end of interviews.
Progress Party presidential can-
didate Ben Dictor said although
having a full ticket is one goal of the
newly-formed party, it is not as im-
portant as having a diverse one.
"We're looking to have a ticket as
diverse as the university," he said.
Not all snagged candidates for
their party's ticket, however.
LAN Party President Kevin
Seymour, who has not been in-
volved with SG before, said no
one interviewed with his party on
Friday but hopes the next two days
will bring better results.
Seymour said he created LAN
after he saw the disconnect dur-
ing Senate meetings over the past
semester between the Gator and
Orange and Blue parties.
Although Seymour is not offi-
cially involved in SG, he attended
meetings and talked to senators to


become educated with the proceed-
ings.
"It's a play on words," he said,
referring to a Local Area Network,
which is used to connect separate
gaming systems so all players can
participate. "The LAN party is all
about connections."
Orange and Blue, Progress and
Unite party leaders spoke abot the


new candidates' fresh perspective.
Orange and Blue Party Leader
Sen. Ben Cavataro said applicants
brought new issues and ideas to the
table.
"There were some ideas for
change I had never heard before,"
he said.
Student Body Presidential can-
didate Jordan Johnson of the Unite


Party noted the turnout of under-
classmen.
"There were a lot of younger
students, which is good to see,"
Johnson said. "They'll play a role in
shaping Student Government in the
future."
Qualifying continues today and
Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in
room 284 of the Reitz Union.


Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
Party representatives wait in the hallway to talk to prospective candidates while Progress Party vice-presidential candi-
date Heshan Illangkoon and presidential candidate Ben Dictor interview a potential Senate candidate in the Reitz Union

Bicyclists take to the streets in ride


By MALLORY ZUCKERMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students, teachers, children,
environmental activists and
professional cyclists took to the
streets Friday for Gainesville's
Second Annual Community
Rock 'n' Ride.
About 200 cyclists partici-
pated in the 6-mile commu-


nity ride, confusing motorists
on West University Avenue,
Southwest 13th Street and
Main Street.
The bicycling event, in
conjunction with Gainesville
Critical Mass, commemo-
rated the first anniversary of
the Gainesville Community
Bicycle Project, Inc., known as
The Kickstand.


Critical Mass is an interna-
tional collective bike ride to
raise aware-
Around ness of cy-
Gainesville clists' rights
to the road,
said Andrew Carr, a UF archi-
tecture junior.
Carr said Friday's crowd
was the largest he has ever
seen in Gainesville.


About 200 hundred cyclists prepare to leave the UF campus Friday evening for a Critical Mass
bike ride headed toward The Kickstand to celebrate its one-year anniversary.


"A lot of cyclists feel mar-
ginalized in a sea of cars," he
said. "We try to reverse the
situation."
During the ride, cyclists
cheered, laughed, waved to
cars, rang their bells and oc-
casionally broke out into song.
When a lone cyclist would ride
by, they called "come, join us"
to invite him or her.
UF sophomore Matthew
McCagg was one of the bicy-
clists who blocked traffic from
side roads to allow the group
to stay together when crossing
intersections, a tactic known as
corking.
"This is way more danger-
ous than I thought it would
be," McCagg said.
Dirk Drake, a social sci-
ences teacher for Westwood
Middle School, rode alongside
his son, Captain, 10, and his
son's friend, Ella, 9.
Drake saidhehasbeenriding
in Critical Mass since the 80s.
He has ridden in cities across
the country such as Savannah,
Ga., and Washington, D.C.
"It's a hands-on way for
them to make a connection
with healthier modes of trans-
portation," Drake said. "It's
healthy for our bodies and the
planet."

Black History Month kicks off with opening ceremony


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF administrators, alumni and
students gathered to celebrate the
start of Black History Month on
Sunday night.
The opening ceremony, which
featured dancers, poets and
speakers, promoted equality and
a break from a black-and-white
vision of America.
About 240 people attended
the event, which was held at UF's
Reitz Union Grand Ballroom and
kicked off the month's festivities.


After a skit addressing the
struggles of slavery, UF President
Bernie Machen spoke.
Machen's presentation was fol-
lowed by a speech from Pamela
Bingham, the first and only black
female Student Body president at
UF.
In his speech, Machen refer-
enced the first black students at
UF and their role in the univer-
sity's integration more than 50
years ago.
"Courage and leadership
have an uncanny way of open-
ing doors and opening minds,"


"Courage and leadership
have an uncanny way of
opening doors and opening
minds."
Bernie Machen
UF President


he said, adding that UF is still not
diverse enough.
The struggle with equality in
our nation's living history con-
tinues, he said.
SG alumna Pamela Bingham
knows of this struggle.


In a speech sandwiched
between standing ovations,
Bingham said she received death
threats on her answering ma-
chine while running for Student
Body president in 1986.
"How you respond to adver-
sity at the end of the day defines
who you are, and sometimes, you
know, you just have to encourage
yourself," Bingham said.
In the wake of President
Obama's inauguration, she spoke
about America's dream of equal-
ity and said it's a work in prog-
ress.


In an interview after her
speech, Bingham offered advice
to UF students about continuing
diversity efforts.
She said students should force
themselves to get to know people
they would not ordinarily meet.
She said they should work to-
ward making student organiza-
tions more diverse.
Nicole Douglas, the executive
director of Black History Month,
had some advice of her own.
"Wake up to your own abili-
ties," she said "Wake up to your
own promise."


Man with marijuana found hiding from GPD under bed


* HE HAS BEEN CONVICTED OF 11
FELONIES.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

A Gainesville man was arrested Friday
night after he was found hiding from po-
lice under a bed.
When a Gainesville police officer saw
a man leaving a known drug corner on a


bicycle, the officer attempted to stop the
man for having improper bicycle lights at
night, according to GPD.
When the man saw the officer, he quick-
ly pedaled away. According to the GPD ar-
rest report, Lt. Scott Meffen ran after him
while shouting, "stop, police."
The man ran to Gardenia Gardens
Apartments at 1727 N.E. Eighth Ave.,
threw down his bicycle and went into
Apartment 8C, the report stated.
"When officers spoke to the resident
of the apartment, she swore up and down


that the man had run in and out and was
no longer there," said GPD spokesman
Keith Kameg. "She even allowed them to
search her apartment to prove he wasn't
inside."
While searching the apart-
Local ment, police found Otis
News McFadden, 28, hiding under
the bed in one of the rooms,
Kameg said.
During the search, officers found a
brown paper bag with 38 grams of mari-
juana that was individually packaged for


street level sale, the report stated.
There were 12 one-gram bags, one two-
gram bag and three eight-gram sandwich
bags.
McFadden said it was for his personal
use.
McFadden was charged with one felony
and three misdemeanors including posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia, trespassing on
posted property and resisting an officer
without violence.
McFadden has been convicted of 11 fel-
onies, Kameg added.

Editorial

Ad Overload

Super Bowl spots offer

viewers a distraction
Beyond the highlight reel sacks and gut-busting grub, the
true allure of the Super Bowl lies in catching the latest in
advertising excellence.
From "Mean" Joe Greene showing his softer side in a Coke
commercial to Apple's Orwellian effort in 1984, the big game has
often taken a backseat to fans more consumed with Budweiser's
latest offering than the final score.
To honor the country's time-tested fascination with Super
Bowl ads, the Editorial Board offers you a run-down of some of
the best (and, well, not so great) ads from Sunday's game.
Bud Light At Staff Meetings: What happens when you sug-
gest eliminating Bud Light from staff meetings? You get thrown
out the window seat and all. At least the guy in question
didn't seem too hurt after surviving a pretty treacherous fall.
Pepsi's "Forever Young": From Bob Dylan to will.i.am,
Pepsi's commercial presented a refreshing take on America by
juxtaposing the '60s and present-day. Quite the apropos offer-
ing to remind us why our country is so great.
Doritos' "Crystal Ball": Doritos started the night off quite
strongly as we learned throwing a crystal ball is good for get-
ting free chips, but a terrible idea for getting a job promotion.
Bud Light's Conan O'Brien Commercial: O'Brien's agent
convinces him to make a commercial that he promises will nev-
er been seen in the states. Predictable, though still quite funny,
O'Brien becomes the laughingstock of Manhattan as the ad gets
played in Times Square.
Doritos' "Crunch": Solidifying its place as this year's big
winner, Doritos' second commercial was even better than the
first. Who wouldn't want to eat a snack food that caused ATMs
to spit out cash?
Budweiser's "Daisy": After a lackluster spot featuring a
Clydesdale fetching a tree branch, Budweiser totally redeemed
itself by telling the love story between two horses smitten with
each other. Aw, how cute is that?
Cash4Gold's "Fallen Stars": The Editorial Board couldn't
help but laugh at MC Hammer and Ed McMahon as they poked
fun at their fallen stars in this satirical masterpiece. What really
caught our eye was McMahon's gold-plated toilet we won-
der what the starting bid will be once it hits eBay.
Cars.com's "David Abernathy": Easily one of the most en-
gaging offerings of the evening as we meet David Abernathy -
a young man bom into the world already exuding confidence.
Abemathy could perform open heart surgery with a pen at the
opera, but he wasn't confident enough to make a car purchase?
Bridgestone's "On the Moon": Apparently the moon can be
a pretty rough place as two astronauts found out the hard way.
After collecting moon rocks and goofing around, they return to
their spaceship to see it up on blocks. We can safely assume they
filmed this commercial in Detroit.
Teleflora's "Boxed Flowers": Ladies, if you receive boxed
flowers on Valentine's Day, it means whoever sent them to
you "doesn't want to see you naked." Though, that sketchy co-
worker in the ad probably wouldn't mind.
Hardee's "Mafia Hit": The newest addition to the menu at
Hardee's is so messy it can save your life. Some poor schlub
dripped tomato sauce all over himself, convincing two mafia hit

Palin wines, dines with top Democrats


She just won't go away.
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the doll of the conser-
vative religious right who got a taste of the rest of
America (even the un-American parts) while campaigning
as John McCain's running mate, doesn't seem to have such
a fondness for her home state anymore.
Palin certainly wasn't in Alaska this past weekend.
Instead, she was in Washington devouring some lobster
with the nation's political and business elite at the pres-
tigious Alfalfa Club's annual dinner soiree. No word has
escaped from the press-free event whether Palin was only
invited to hand deliver some of Alaska's finest crusta-
ceans.
Certainly Palin must have felt awkward at the yearly
Alfalfa gathering. She told members of the press that she
was only going to the dinner because "President Obama
is scheduled to be there." That statement comes only four
months after she exploited Obama's association with "un-
repentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers." Now Palin is will-
ing to give a speech on the same stage as President Obama,
who unapologetically "palled around with terrorists."
In Gov. Palin's twisted game of guilt by association,
doesn't that make her an accomplice to domestic terror-
ism, too?
Yet the really awkward part isn't Palin joining in
on an elite dinner with the nation's best and brightest,
people from the fake America, from places like New
York, Washington, Chicago, Miami and L.A. No, the re-
ally awkward and uncomfortable part for Palin is her re-
cently formed political action committee, cutely named
SarahPAC, a move that all but signals a run for Congress
or worst, a place on the GOP ticket in 2012.
Little did she know that the ever-shrinking GOP still


had a trick up its Brooks
Brothers sleeve.
Enter Michael Steele, stage
right.
Steele, a former lieutenant
governor from Maryland, was
Matthew Christ elected the first black chairman
editor@alligator.org of the beleaguered GOP. He's
already stolen Palin's spot-
light. He's a moderate, modern
Anwar Sadat look-a-like, and MSNBC's Chris Matthews
even voted for him in his failed bid for the U.S. Senate.
Democrats have a lot to be jolly about right now. Our
candidate won, and for the first time in my life, multiple
polls show that a historically low number of Americans
affiliate with the Republican Party. But there's a new dy-
namic duo in town.
Palin may be viewed as either naive or vacuous, but
she's not stupid she just hasn't learned enough. Give
her four more years and she may be able to recapture the
suburban middle-class voters who Amtrak-Joe won over
to the blue team. And with Steele, having moderate po-
litical roots and a connection to a modem city, such as
Baltimore, urban voters may soon be reachable again.
Yet the duo should be reminded that the GOP didn't
lose because of demographics. They lost because they
were on the wrong side of the issues.
For her party's sake, hopefully Palin listened in on
some of the conversations at the Alfalfa dinner. The elit-
ists and so-called "unrepentant terrorists" did pretty well
last year.

Obama walks razor's edge in keeping campaign promises


President Barack Obama has been
in office for only about two weeks
and, already, things have begun to
change.
Admittedly, no cherubim came down
from the heavens-Hillary Clinton was
right on that count-but we have already
witnessed the undoing of several aspects of
Dubya's neoconservative agenda.
Obama has already announced that he
will close Guantanamo Bay within a year
and has issued an executive order repeal-
ing the so-called global gag rule put in place
by Bush II (who was undoing the work of
Clinton, who was undoing the work of Bush
I...). Another type of change has also become
evident-the Republicans are now a united
opposition party. The president's stimulus
plan failed to garner a single Republican vote
in the House.
Obama has set a fairly liberal-looking
course during his first two weeks in office,
but he will need to be cautious because, as
both new president and liberal messiah, he

U-Wire


has much less freedom than one might imag-
ine.
Obama is beginning his term with an un-
precedented amount of expectations on his
broad, handsome shoulders. (Sorry, I seem to
have channeled Silvio Berlusconi). A Gallup
Poll found his approval rating shortly after
entering office to be at a near-unprecedented
69 percent. But people are notoriously fickle,
especially when optimism soars, and any
missteps on Obama's part could give him a
bloody nose from which recovery will be dif-
ficult.
PolitiFact.com, apparently willing to rain
on the parade, compiled a list of Obama's
campaign promises. It is not entirely accurate,
but since public perception is all that matters,
that fact is irrelevant.
It lists 510 promises with accompanying
quotations. Its tally so far: Promises Kept: 6,
Stalled: 1, In the Works: 17, Compromised:
1, No Action: a daunting 484. It goes without
saying--but what job would I have if I didn't
say it?--that Obama will be under intense


scrutiny for each
and every one of
those promises.
Such are the pit-
falls of being "The
Great One."
Eric Chianese And so, we come
editor@alligator.org to the razor's edge
on which Obama
must walk. We have
already seen that
some Republicans are attempting to invigo-
rate their party and their constituencies by
mounting symbolic resistance to the new ad-
ministration.
If Obama veers too far left, Republicans
will make life very difficult for him. This
would go against Rule No. 1 of political hero-
ism: never let them see you sweat.
An easy fix, you may think: Obama can
simply do what most presidents do and
charge like the Light Brigade toward the
center. Unfortunately, things are no longer
that simple. The powers on the extreme left


feel as though Obama is indebted to them.
They helped him defeat the Inevitable Miss
Clinton, and if he moves too far toward the
center, you can be sure he will face their
wrath. Markos Moulitsas and his charm-
ingly-named "Kossacks" have already at-
tacked Obama over a few of his more centrist
moves.
One can still feel that the attitude perme-
ates among these activists stated most
bluntly (and with a pinch of Orwell) by Eli
Pariser, executive director of MoveOn.org in
2004 that "now it's our party: we bought it,
we own it and we're going to take it back."
Obama is viewed by these elements as
their property, and they will not hesitate to
ill-use him if they don't think he's pursuing
their interests with all his strength.
Obama must row carefully between the
Scylla and Charybdis of too much partisan-
ship and not enough. But hey it's a heavy
lies the crown sort of thing.

Police search for suspect in string of auto burglaries


* IPODS AND GPS DEVICES WERE
AMONG ITEMS TAKEN FROM MOSTLY
UNLOCKED VEHICLES.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org
The Gainesville Police Department is
searching for a man suspected of com-
mitting a string of auto burglaries in


Gainesville.
In January, Gainesville car burglar-
ies increased, said GPD spokesman Keith
Kameg.
Kameg said some of the victims report-
ed their credit cards stolen.
"Because they were honest with their
banking information, GPD was able to
contact the businesses where their credit
cards were used," Kameg said.
The businesses provided GPD with


video of their stores at the times that the
credit cards were used.
Joseph Murray, 46, was in some of those
videos using the stolen cards.
Local "We think he is linked to
News as many as eight auto bur-
glaries," Kameg said.
Murray has warrants out
for his arrest for grand theft and auto bur-
glary, Kameg said.
Murray's bonds total more than $47,000,


he said.
Officials believe Murray ran away and
is hiding in Palatka, Kameg said.
"The way that Murray gained access to
most of the vehicles was through unlocked
doors," Kameg said.
Other than credit cards, Kameg said iP-
ods, GPS tracking devices and other small
electronics were stolen.
GPD asks anyone with information on
Murray to call 352-955-1818.

Crossword tournament puzzles North Florida residents


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

Eric Reinhardt may not know
much about doo-wop, but he
does know just about everything
else.
He took first place at the Third
Annual North Florida Crossword
Tournament, held at the Savannah
Grande in downtown Gainesville,
by making only one mistake.
When asked to identify a doo-
wop syllable, a reference to a
genre of 50s music, he wrote a
"c" where the "s" should have
been in "sha".


He finished his puzzle in a lo-
cal record-breaking 22 minutes.
About 70 people from around
the U.S. participated in the tour-
nament Saturday morning.
"We're surrounded by the
smartest people in Gainesville,"
said Jeannette Peters, 49, who
competed in the tournament.
Reinhardt, a 72-year-old
Jacksonville resident, won a trip
to New York for the National
Crossword Championship.
"I just see little boxes that
need letters put in them," said
Reinhardt, a retired computer
programmer.


During the final round, the
top three contestants filled out
large-scale puzzles in front of an
audience.
"I'm not going to lie. It's
a lot more exciting than I
thought it would be."
Kristen Wilkie
Volunteer

About 75 people watched the
puzzlers, some of them scratch-
ing out their own answers on ex-
tra copies.
Merl Reagel, a crossword ce-


lebrity featured in the documen-
tary "Wordplay," provided play-
by-play analysis as the puzzles
were being completed.
The contestants could only
vaguely hear him through ear-
plugs and muffling headphones.
"I wouldn't wish that puzzle
on my worst crossword enemy,"
Reagel said. "Actually, make that
my second worst crossword en-
emy."
Reagel also created a puzzle
for the competition, which fea-
tured his distinct style of themed,
corny clues.
Reagel writes about one puz-


zle per week for the New York
Times.
"It was typical Merl,"
Reinhardt said.
The puzzles theme was "types
of rooms," with clues leading to
answers such as 'back room' and
'mushroom.'
Many first-time crossword
contest observers were surprised
at how fun it was to watch and
play along with the puzzlers.
"I'm not going to lie," said
Kristen Wilkie, 21, who volun-
teered at the competition. "It's a
lot more exciting than I thought
it would be."

vision, if not the Cardinals directly.
"I'm just more of a 'let's go out to a bar'
type person," she said. "It's much better
than sitting on the couch at home."
But Emily Bohler had a different ap-


proach.
She held a house party with about 15
friends. Nobody who attended the party
was a die-hard fan of either team.
"I'm for the Cardinals because they're
the underdogs," said Anna Garrido, a se-
nior at UF.
Jill Dolan, 22, is a fan of the Miami


Dolphins, but supported the Pittsburgh
Steelers as her second choice. She was the
only one at the party
Around wearing a Steelers jersey.
Gainesville Another partier, Josh
Lancaster, 24, said that
the Super Bowl is just another excuse to get
together.


"We're really just here having a party,"
said Lancaster.
All the partygoers agreed that the
slightly anticlimactic celebration after the
Super Bowl was nowhere near as excit-
ing as when Gainesville rushed the streets
following UF's win in the BCS National
Championship.


Recession ups financial need


AID, from page 1
And while UF advises students
on the available options, a recent
study found some students may
not be taking advantage of aid
available to them.
At last week's Board of
Governors meeting, a report es-
timated that about 22,000 under-
graduates at Florida public univer-
sities failed to apply for Pell Grants
in 2005, despite having a qualified
financial status.
About $24 million of this fed-
eral, need-based aid went un-
claimed, according to the report.
Wilder said UF's Office for Student
Financial Affairs does all it can to
inform students of their options
for financial aid.
UF starts educating students
about these opportunities as early
as middle or high school, he said.
Even with help from UF's finan-
cial advisers, however, students
are still making sacrifices because
of the recession's effect on family
income.
Amber Wangle, a UF building


construction graduate student, has
no extra money to buy books and
school supplies due to recent fam-
ily financial difficulties.

"Every situation is different,
and it's best to talk with a
trained financial aid profes-
sional before you do any-
thing."
Rick Wilder
Associate Director of Financial Aid
Advising for UF's Office for Student
Financial Affairs.


Wangle said she walks to school
and eats at home daily to save
money.
If a student's financial situation
changes dramatically, he or she
should seek help from their finan-
cial aid advisers and discuss which
options are available to them,
Wilder said.
"Every situation is different,
and it's best to talk with a trained
financial aid professional before
you do anything," he said.

Tennessee silences UF with 16-point home victory


UF's Erving Walker falls to the floor as he is defended by Tennessee's Bobby Maze during
the first half of the Volunteers' 79-63 win Saturday in Knoxville, Tenn.


* THE GATORS HAVE LOST FOUR
STRAIGHT GAMES IN KNOXVILLE.

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. All UF could
do was watch in stunned silence as the
deafening Tennessee crowd drowned out
any hope of a second-half comeback.
More than 20,000 fans took to their
feet as the Gators (18-4, 5-2 Southeastern
Conference) walked off the floor at
Thompson-Boling Arena to the tune of a
79-63 loss.
"That's definitely the wildest crowd
we've seen this year," forward Chandler
Parsons said.
"It's a crazy environment, and they
don't like us."
The Gators chipped away at a 23-point
second-half Volunteers lead and cut the
deficit to 10 with 4:42 to play.
But the Volunteers closed out the game
with a 15-9 flurry that proved to be too
much to overcome.
It was the Gators' fourth straight loss
in Knoxville and their sixth out of the last
seven to the Volunteers.
Tennessee (13-7, 4-2 SEC) opened the
game with an 11-3 run and never took its
foot off the gas.
UF guard Nick Calathes (21 points)
was sent to the bench after picking up two
fouls in the first three minutes of play.
The first foul came at the 18:22 mark
and the second a little more than a minute


later when he was called for an offensive
foul while driving down the lane.
"I didn't think it was a charge, but the
refs are going to make those calls some-
times," Calathes said.
Freshman Erving Walker was forced to
shoulder the load at point guard for the
Gators.
The burden was too much for him to
handle.
Walker was clearly rattled by the rau-
cous Tennessee crowd and struggled to
control the ball.
Usually quick to pull the trigger,
Walker (3 points) passed up open looks
he usually knocks down.
With Calathes on the sideline, it was
up to the 5-foot-8 Walker to slow down
6-foot-7 Tennessee guard Scotty Hopson.
The freshman capitalized on the mis-
match, scoring 20 points and going 4 of 6
from 3-point range.
Calathes re-entered the game with a
little more than six minutes to play in the
first half, but by then the Volunteers al-
ready had the game well in hand.
"Obviously, when we lose Nick, that's
a big part of our offense," Parsons said.
"We have to learn how to play without
him."
Frustration soon began to set in for the
Gators.
Down 36-19 with 1:02 left in the first
half, UF was charged with a five-second
violation after the team failed to inbound
the ball.
The Gators struggled to protect the

Keep your fingers crossed that

Because when he does, I can't see
why any talented recruit would rather
play for the UF basketball team than
Tennessee.
This weekend was my first trip to
Rocky Top for a basketball game, and I
couldn't have been more impressed by
the atmosphere in Thompson-Boling
Arena.
A crowd of just less than 21,000
watched the Volunteers whoop up on
the Gators 79-63, and though UF has the
advantage in terms of trophies lately,
Tennessee's program is built on a much


stronger
foundation.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Smith puts on show for fans


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Rocky Top was
rocking Saturday night, and Volunteers
fans have Tyler Smith to thank.
The Tennessee junior forward was all
over the court in the first half against UF,
knocking down three 3-pointers and slam-
ming home a mammoth alley-oop dunk
with 5:25 left in the half.
As soon as Smith's feet touched the
ground after the dunk, he posed for the
home crowd, hands on his hips, trium-
phant. The fans ate it up.
"The crowd has been there for us
through the losses," Smith said. "We just
wanted to pay them back for coming out
and giving us some support."
The sharpshooter finished the half with
11 points, four rebounds and three assists.


Two of Smith's first-half 3-pointers
came immediately on the heels of long-
range baskets from the Gators, effectively
silencing what could have become UF ral-
lies.
After the game, UF
players were keenly
aware of Smith's impact
on the game.
"Tyler Smith, he's a
warrior," said UF for-
ward Chandler Parsons,
Smith who matched up against
Smith for much of the game. "He's one
of the toughest players that I've played
against."
Smith began the Volunteers' scoring
with a 3-pointer from the left side immedi-
ately after UF guard Nick Calathes missed
a layup following the opening tip. That

UF exceeds win total from '08


Gators break school record with 13 threes


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

With seven regular-season
games, postseason tournaments
and more than a month of bas-
ketball remaining, UF decided to
go ahead and exceed its win to-
tal from last season on Sunday at
Arkansas.
Like last year, the No. 12
Gators (20-2, 6-1 Southeastern
Conference) didn't have much
trouble in Fayetteville, Ark.,
downing the Razorbacks (12-10,
1-6 SEC) 94-78 to remain tied atop
the SEC standings at the halfway
point in the conference season.
However, unlike last year's
win, which gave UF its 13th vic-
tory of the season, the Gators
reached the 20-win mark for the
first time since 2006, becoming
just the 10th UF team to do so.
"We'll take it," UF coach
Amanda Butler said.
"I hope that we're going to
continue to find ways to get bet-
ter and continue to play consis-
tently at a high level."
For a little perspective, the '06
UF squad advanced to the NCAA
Tournament but didn't pick up
its 20th win until the last game of
the regular season on Feb. 26.

Sinclair's 10 fuels Gators' victory


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Members of the UF gymnastics team said they
trained harder than ever last week in practice.
Amid a sea of pink, the team's effort showed in
Friday night's Link to Pink meet against Kentucky
(1-3, 0-3 Southeastern Conference).
Fueled by Melanie Sinclair's perfect 10 on un-
even bars, the Gators (3-1, 2-1 SEC) rebounded from
their Jan. 23 loss at Arkansas with a 195.925 to 193.85
win.
The team led after the first event vault and
practically put away the Wildcats on bars.
Sinclair's 10, sandwiched between 9.9s from team-
mates Maranda Smith and Corey Hartung, gave the
Gators a comfortable lead.
"Actually, I woke up this morning, and I honestly
felt, like, so good that I could do anything," Sinclair
said. "When I was warming up bars, everything just
came so fluid."
UF coach Rhonda Faehn had a good feeling about
Sinclair before the meet even started.
"Her warm-up I said, 'That's 10.0 material right
there,," Faehn said.
The 10 was Sinclair's third career 10. Her first
came against the same foe, Kentucky, on Feb. 16,
2007.
The whole team performed well on bars, with no
gymnast scoring lower than a 9.8.
The team's success didn't carry over to balance
beam. For the third straight week, beam proved to
be UF's weakest event. The team turned in a 48.125.
"We just keep having stupid mistakes on the
beam," Hartung said. "One bad beam rotation is
fine, but not two like (Friday). Having a second
one (Friday) is unacceptable."
Following the 10, Sinclair led off on beam. Hyped
up from her perfect score, she faltered a bit on the
dismount.


"I was really antsy going into beam," she said. "I
was shaking after my 10 so it was hard I was first
on beam so it was hard to bring my heart rate back
down and get grounded so I can do my beam rou-
tine. I was still a little anxious on my dismount."
Faehn attributed the continuing beam troubles to
injuries.
"We have, still, injured athletes," she said. "We've
had a different lineup every week on beam and
we've had a different order, and it's just because we
haven't been able to have the athletes consistently
healthy to be able to go in."
Sinclair said there was improvement on beam,
though, and statistically there was.

"Actually, I woke up this morning, and I
honestly felt, like, so good that I could do
anything."
Melanie Sinclair
UF junior gymnast

"Going aggressive and making mistakes is better,
and that's just the next step to hitting your routines
perfect," she said.
Hartung, who fell off beam last week against
Arkansas, showed why the fall was uncharacteristic.
Against Kentucky, she scored a 9.9 on beam, good
for the beam title.
"I'll take the 9.9 for tonight, but I know I can score
better," Hartung said.
Despite troubles on beam, it wasn't enough for
the Gators to relinquish the lead on floor exercise,
though it was enough for the team to lose some of
the swagger it had before beam.
The team scored a 49.05 on floor, its lowest output
in the event this season.
"I think that carried over a little bit into floor,"
Faehn said. "They lost that energy and that momen-
tum and so we lost some tenths on floor as well."


Doubles duo keeps


up outstanding play

By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

In doubles action, they are dominant. In singles com-
petition, they are stellar.
Juniors Megan Alexander and Marrit Boonstra contin-
ued their exceptional play for the No. 7 Gators women in
their 7-0 sweep of Western Michigan on Sunday.
The No. 18-ranked duo defeated the Broncos' Emily
Dudzik and Yumi Matsuto 8-2.
They have only dropped four of their 36 games played
as a pair this season for UF (4-0).
In singles, the 5-foot-11 Boonstra
faced a near mirror image of herself, in
appearance if not skill. The No. 34 player
beat Kerstin Pahl 6-4, 6-1.
"It doesn't happen a lot of times that
someone is taller than me," she said of
Alexander her 6-foot- opponent.
"I liked her game. She tried to go to
the net often. I like when people do that."
Alexander had equal success against Western
Michigan's Jenny Nalepa.
After a 3-3 score in the first set, Alexander rattled off
nine straight games, rarely making a mistake.
"I made her play a lot of balls at the beginning,"
Alexander said.
"She hung with me for the first little bit and after a
while got tired of it and started making more errors."

Parsons fouled out with

points and nine rebounds.
At times Saturday night,
the game became heated, with
physical altercations popping
up across the court.

He threw an elbow to
Hopson's face while fighting

with four video boards and four statscreens.
Sure, those are just creature comforts, but
they make Thompson-Boling a premier place
for basketball.
Second, Tennessee fans are just better
than the ones I see at the O'Dome. Granted,
I caught them on a good night ESPN's
College GameDay was in attendance but
the Volunteers' faithful blow Gators' sup-
porters out of the water.
The most noticeable difference between
the two crowds is the connection the players
and fans share at Tennessee. The Volunteers
play a totally different style from the Gators,
and a lot of it comes from the energy in the
arena.
Tennessee players took the court on
Saturday by jogging through the student sec-
tion, and the students repaid the love with an

shot from downtown brought the
fans to their feet, and few would
sit down the rest of the evening.
The momentum belonged to the
players in orange and white from
that point forward.
Calathes said Smith's shoot-
ing efficiency caught the Gators
off guard. Smith had made just
10 of 40 threes all season coming
into the game.
"He made his threes tonight,
which we didn't think he would
make them," Calathes said. "We


weren't expecting those."
That he was underestimated
by UF didn't shock Smith at all.
"The percentages aren't show-
ing how hard I've been work-
ing," he said.
Smith had been slumping
lately, but Saturday night's ef-
fort reinforced his coach's belief
in him.
"Tyler Smith can shoot the
ball," Tennessee coach Bruce
Pearl said. "He shot with confi-
dence. You have to deserve vic-
tory, and you have to believe as
a shooter that the shot deserves
to go in."


Smith quieted down a bit
in the second half but left
Thompson-Boling Arena after he
scored 16 points, tied for a team
high in rebounds with nine and
gathered four assists.
He hit three free throws down
the stretch to end any thoughts
of a UF comeback, and Parsons
fouled out while landing on
him when Smith got a rebound.
Parsons, exasperated with the
night's performance, put his
arms in the air as if to say, "What
more can I do?"
While Parsons trudged off
the court, Smith stood still and


played to the crowd by waving
his arms in the air.
The game fittingly ended with
the ball in Smith's hands. As the
clock wound down, he dribbled
the last seconds away. As the
buzzer sounded, he ceremoni-
ously dunked the ball, putting a
cap on the Volunteers' huge vic-
tory.
Smith said he wanted to dunk
the ball before time expired.
"I wanted the 2 points," Smith
said with a laugh. "But Coach
said no, we couldn't shoot. So I
let the time expire so I wouldn't
be in trouble."

explosion of sound for the opening minutes,
when the Volunteers jumped out to a quick
lead.
"I promise you the environment had a
lot to do with us getting off to a pretty good
start," Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said.
When J.P. Prince threw down a dunk to
make the score 11-3, he stood on the baseline
and offered an overdone salute to the crowd,
and the Volunteers were celebrating and
dancing all over the court after their early
buckets.
That kind of swagger has been missing
from Gainesville since the '04s left, but that
doesn't just come from players. Even when
Tennessee doesn't have a great team this
year included its fans can lift it up.
That doesn't happen at UF, where the
closest things fans can come up with to being
original are a lame "Fantastic" cheer (one of
the dumbest things I've heard at a sporting
event) and a guy pretending a piece of string


is an instrument.
Volunteers fans are even superior during
opposing free throws. They do it right, not
by screaming and shaking pom-poms, but by
waving their arms in unison to one side, and
then swinging their arms to the other side as
the player releases his shot.
That's how it's supposed to be done. It
actually makes a difference, and it's another
reason why Tennessee hoops games are a
main course of their own, not just an appe-
tizer before spring football starts up.
Maybe hearing that the basketball experi-
ence is better and more fun at Tennessee will
make you mad.
That's fine, but it's true, and it's unlikely
to change anytime soon.
The best part is, you don't have to do any-
thing about it. Donovan will find a way to
keep the Gators relevant, and when they're
lagging, you can always count on Urban
Meyer.
