Economy changes break plans for students


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

Spring break for college students is al-
ways eagerly awaited, but in tough eco-
nomic times when not everyone can jet
off to Colorado for a week in the snow,
students are finding other options for this
year's break.
Some students are staying local, like


UF sophomore telecommunications ma-
jor Andrew Suarez, who plans to spend
Spring Break in his hometown, Tampa, re-
laxing and taking advantage of the nearby
beaches.
"Not only living in Florida, but living
in the Tampa area is amazing," he said.
Luckily for Suarez, he doesn't have to
go far for a good time.
In addition to the beach, this year's


Southeastern Conference men's basketball
tournament will be held in Tampa, and Su-
arez said his tax refund money
Student will cover his tickets.
Life "That way, I can treat my-
self and not feel guilty because
it's money that's coming back," he said.
Other spring break options available to
students are service trips, where travelers
sacrifice their downtime to help others.


UF organization Florida Alternative
Breaks matches students with service trips
based on what social issues interest them.
Andrew Perrone, staff adviser for the
organization, said that more than 200 stu-
dents are going on 15 spring break trips.
Perrone said the issues dealt with range
from working with prison inmates in Ten-

Carnival honors


cancer fighters
0 FRIENDS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA SPONSORED
THE EVENT.

By MARISSA LYONS
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Friends for Life of America held their fifth annual
Chomp Cancer Spring Carnival Thursday afternoon on the
Reitz Union North Lawn in order to spread cancer awareness
among UF students.
The free food and games drew students in, but the cause
made them stay. Fact sheets hung from the tents with vari-
ous statistics on cancer. There was also a memorial board for
students to sign in memory of those lost to cancer or in honor
of those fighting cancer. The club, which holds fundraisers
throughout the year, works with cancer patients.
Alicia Garcia, a UF accounting junior and active member,
described it as a place where students can get together and talk
about how cancer has affected them.
Madison Beerbohm, a UF journalism junior, came to the
carnival to have her hair cut for Locks of Love.
"My uncle and my grandfather both died of cancer, so it's a
way for me to give back," Beerbohm said.
Brittany Shaara, a hairdresser at the Reitz Union Hair Com-
pany, volunteered to run the Locks of Love booth. Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

Reitz Union closes Capeesh, prepares for Polio Tropical


YVONNE AYALA

UF students and faculty said, "Arrive-
derci" to Capeesh Italian Restaurant at the
Reitz Union and will say, "Hola" to the
Pollo Tropical restaurant.
Pollo Tropical, a Latin-Caribbean res-
taurant that first opened in Miami, will re-


place Capeesh Italian Restaurant on June
30. Capeesh closed Thursday afternoon.
Pollo Tropical offers marinated chicken,
pork and ribs with sides like rice, beans,
yuca and corn.
"Students have expressed an interest
in bringing Pollo Tropical to campus since
late 2007," said Jill Rodriguez, the market-
ing manager for Gator Dining Services.


"I'm so tired of eating just fast
food on this campus."

Claudia Murray, a UF law student,
played a lead role in bringing Pollo Tropi-

"I can eat at Fritanga [Latin Grill], but
it's not the same," Murray said. "When we
ordered food out, we didn't get pizza, we
didn't get Taco Bell, we got Pollo Tropical
- that's my comfort food."

Gandhi items auctioned for $1.8M
NEW YORK (AP) Mohandas Gandhi's eyeglasses and
other items sold for $1.8 million Thursday at an auction that
drew outrage from the Indian government, a last-minute re-
versal from the seller and a frenzy of bidding won by an Indian
conglomerate that said the pacifist leader's possessions will be
coming home.
The lot included Gandhi's wire-rim eyeglasses, worn leath-
er sandals, a pocket watch, a plate and the brass bowl from
which he ate his final meal. The Indian government protested
the sale, saying the items should be returned to the nation and
not sold to the highest bidder.

Students must take survey to qualify for football tix


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Students hoping to score tickets in UF's
football lottery will need to enter more than
just a credit card number this year.
To be eligible for football tickets, students
must take the Student Experience in the Re-
search University survey, or SERU, which will
ask students about their academic experience,
social activities and further career goals.
The survey, which can be taken online
through ISIS, will begin March 16 and will
take about 25 minutes to complete, wrote Ma-


rie Zeglen, assistant provost and director of
Institutional Planning and Research, in an e-
mail.
Students can complete SERU in one sitting
or break it up into sessions.
According to Zeglen, there will also be
questions about civic engagements, student
development and student services.
"The survey will help UF leaders and ad-
ministrators learn more about the undergrad-
uate student experience on campus," Zeglen
wrote. "Actions can be taken in areas where
students express less satisfaction."
Unlike other types of surveys, SERU will


get feedback from the majority of the UF pop-
ulation instead of just a sample, because all un-
dergrads will be required to take the survey.
Graduate students and incoming freshmen
are exempt.
Student "Academic departments will
Life get extensive feedback from their
student majors," Zeglen wrote.
"Many of these colleges and departments have
not had this type of detailed feedback."
A similar survey was created by the Uni-
versity of California at Berkeley Center for
Studies in Higher Education in 2003 and was
used by eight Californian universities, Zeglen


wrote.
In 2008, the University of California invited
other colleges to administer the survey.
UF, along with five other schools including
the University of Michigan and Rutgers Uni-
versity, took them up on the offer.
"Best practices can be shared among all the
universities administering the survey," Zeglen
wrote.
Zeglen wrote that students taking the sur-
vey should know there are more benefits than
just being eligible for football tickets.
"SERU is not just a survey," she wrote. "It's
your vote."

But the UAA, which has donated
about $48 million to UF since 1990,
has, in fact, considered making a
larger than average contribution to
UF this year, UF spokesman Steve
Orlando said.
"There have been discussions
about that, but I don't think they've
reached any final decision on it," Or-


lando said.
Steve McClain, a UAA spokes-
man, said the association usually
won't know how much it will do-
nate until the end of the fiscal year,
when revenues are tallied.
"Some of it is contingent on li-
censing and royalty fees, so I can't
give you a number right now," Mc-
Clain said.

Orlando argued that the UAA
has been the subject of some unfair
criticism.
"You hear people say, 'Gee it

Orlando said.

Local students react to anti-Semitism in Venezuela


* ONE STUDENT MOVED TO
GAINESVILLE BECAUSE OF
THE ATTACKS.

By LEORA ARNOWITZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

For many students in Gainesville,
hearing the news of a bomb explod-
ing inside a Jewish Community
Center in Caracas, Venezuela, on
Feb. 26 hit too close to home.
This marked the second anti-Se-
mitic, or anti-Jewish, attack in Cara-
cas within a month.
The first attack, vandalization of
a major synagogue in late January,
pushed 19-year-old Samuel Cohen
to move to Gainesville two weeks
ago.
"As soon as that happened, my
mom told me I had to get the hell


out of Venezuela," he said. "That's
why I started really looking to come
to a university here."
Cohen enrolled at Santa Fe Col-
lege and started classes on Monday.
Eduardo Fleischer, a UF indus-
trial and systems engineering junior,
moved to the U.S. from Venezuela
in 2006. He said the recent attacks
go against the country's history of
tolerance.
"I think it's a shame because
Venezuela is a country that has al-
ways accepted all people and immi-
grants," he said.
Fleischer said many speculate
the government was involved in
the attack on the synagogue, and
he thinks the attacks are linked to
President Hugo Chavez's anti-Israel
sentiments.
"We don't say he does the at-
tacks, but it's his motivational


"Good people everywhere
need to be aware of what
is happening and need to
condemn these senseless
acts of violence."
Berl Goldman
Rabbi

speeches that produce the attacks,"
he said.
Jossie Buzaglu, a UF industrial
engineering senior who moved from
Venezuela in 2007, said it is impor-
tant to understand this was not the
first time anti-Semitism had been
felt in Venezuela. But he said the
situation is worse now than ever.
"Anti-Semitism always arises
when there are conflicts in Israel,"
he said. "Chavez takes the Pales-


tinian side, and he has such good
speeches that he convinces every-
one the Israelis are wrong."
Rabbi Berl Goldman, of the
Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student
and Community Center, described
the situation as not only a Venezu-
elan concern, but a Jewish one as
well.
"Thankfully, Chavez has come
out and said publicly, at least, that
he condemns the attacks, and that
he will help the situation," Gold-
man said. "Whether or not he does
that will be a true testament to his
role as a political leader."
Esther Benchimol, a UF student
and president of the Venezuelan
Student Association, said since the
conflict in Gaza and the violence in
Caracas began, she has worried dai-
ly about her family members who
still live in Venezuela.


"My mom is already nervous be-
cause of the general dangers in Ven-
ezuela, and now we have to worry
about being Jewish?" Benchimol
said.
She found out about the syna-
gogue attack from her mom, who
was crying hysterically after hear-
ing the news. Benchimol said her
family used to attend weekly ser-
vices there.
Benchimol said she wants to help
the situation by increasing aware-
ness about what is happening in
Venezuela.
Goldman said throughout their
history, Jews have never been able to
be unaware of anti-Semitic threats,
even in countries like Venezuela.
"Good people everywhere need
to be aware of what is happening
and need to condemn these sense-
less acts of violence," he said.


International exhibition to feature 97 Japanese kimono


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

The Harn Museum of Art will be hosting
an international loan exhibition featuring the
kimono, Japan's national costume.
"Fashioning Kimono: Art Deco and Mod-
ernism in Japan" will run free of charge to the
public starting Sunday through May 17.


The exhibit features 97 kimono from the
1890s to the 1940s and 49 photographs.
The kimono, which are on loan from the
Montgomery Collection of Lugano, Switzer-
land, are free-standing throughout the room
categorized by season, gender and style, said
Jason Steuber, Cofrin curator of Asian Art at
the museum.
Steuber said he designed the exhibit to re-


semble how the kimono are worn, instead of
just hanging them on a wall.
Because the kimono
Around was the attire of choice for
Gainesville men, women and children
in Japan from the late 1800s
to the mid-1900s, the kimono range from caus-
al everyday wear to formal wedding wear.
Some garments mimic traditional Japanese


history and famous Japanese literature, while
there are some with a modem feel, he said.
One kimono in the exhibit, made for a
young boy, is decorated with army images of
guns and planes reflecting the World Wars.
"The shape of the kimono never changes,"
Steuber said. "But the design and textural de-
tail absorb what is happening in contempo-
rary society."

From taking home the BCS Championship during the first

Crashing a car can be an extremely stressful ordeal, but
when houses are involved, you've just opened up a whole
new can of worms. The Department of Darts & Laurels
launches a why-are-you-driving-around-with-seven-large-
pieces-of-crack DART at Eric Wade for causing $5,000 worth
of damage by driving his vehicle into a Gainesville home. To
make things even worse for Wade, he fled the scene to avoid
being arrested only to be caught by police mere blocks lat-
er.
With budget cuts on the horizon at UF, one group of stu-
dents staring down the elimination of their program is taking
a stand. For holding a vigil protesting the proposed cut of the
undergraduate education program at UF, the Department of
Darts & Laurels extends a way-to-stand-up-for-your-field-

tion. While budget cuts are not going away anytime soon,
there are better ways to remedy the situation than by cutting
an entire curriculum.
While a rumbling in the tummy can cause people to do
crazy things, one woman from Fort Pierce, Fla., set a new
standard for ridiculousness. The Department of Darts & Lau-
rels tosses a why-the-hell-didn't-you-just-go-to-Checkers?
DART at Latreasa Goodman for calling 911 three times after
learning McDonald's ran out of her beloved chicken nuggets.
When hunger pains hit us, you better get out of our way, but
we certainly aren't going to call GPD if Gyros Plus just so
happened to run out of hummus (oh no).
News from the world of sports often informs us of the lat-
est slugger suspected of steroid use or a player arrested for
off-the-field troubles unless you're the Orlando Magic. For
building a new playground for the youth of Orlando to en-
joy, the Department of Darts & Laurels presents the Orlando
Magic basketball team a you-guys-are-studs-on-and-off-
the-court LAUREL. While the players taking one day out of
their schedules to lend a helping hand isn't too much to ask,
we're sure more than one child walked away from meeting
Dwight Howard grinning ear to ear.
Working as a mascot is nothing short of back-breaking
work especially when dealing with unruly customers. The
Department of Darts & Laurels chucks a take-it-easy-on-the-
Red-Bull-big-guy DART at Trahan Pires for ripping off the
head of the Chuck E. Cheese mascot after thinking the giant
rat had pinned his son against a video game console. For his
absurd reaction, Pires was fined $500 more than enough
to have covered a new Xbox360 and ROCKSTAR for his son
who was at the restaurant celebrating his birthday.
Maybe it's just us, but we can never understand the mys-
tery voice behind the intercom at drive-through restaurants.
For manipulating the frequency at a Taco Bell squawk box
and greeting customers with vulgar messages, the Depart-
ment of Darts & Laurels laughs as we give two Missouri
teens a mad-props-for-pranking-unsuspecting-fast-food-
fans-as-they-attempt-to-get-their-grub-on LAUREL. We can
only imagine the look on the faces of Taco Bell employees as
two kids sat in the parking lot transmitting unsavory one-
liners over the intercom.
"Hey slim, do you really need five gorditas?"
That's all for this week. Have a safe Spring Break!

Capitol Hill spending isn't the answer


It is no secret to anyone (except maybe Florida State
economics students) that the economy is in its worst
state in years.
Economists expect the economy to have shed over
750,000 jobs over the course of February 400,000 more
than in January.
America's Insurance Giant, the lifeblood of the Ameri-
can insurance and financial industry, is burning through
cash faster than Gator basketball is throwing away its sea-
son, losing more than $62 billion of taxpayer money in
less than three months. And it's not just the United States
that is experiencing an economic boom. Europe's unem-
ployment levels are rising to historic highs, and Chinese
growth has slowed almost 4 percent in the past year and
a half.
Although the problem is easily identified and diverse
in its causes, the government is taking a one-size-fits-
all approach to shoring up our ailing economy spend,
spend, spend and don't forget more spending.
Let me premise this by saying that I am a staunch
Democrat and a believer in the recent economic stimulus
package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,
despite the fact that money provisions simply are not go-
ing to "stimulate" the economy. But there comes a point
at which spending more will fail to fix our economy, and
we are rapidly approaching that point.
Many easily forget that this is not Congress' first at-
tempt to shore up the economy via a stimulus bill. Right
before leaving office, former President George W. Bush
pushed through Congress another stimulus package that
gave American families hundreds of dollars in disposable
cash, thinking that they would spend it and put it back
into the economy. Not only did this bill fail to restore con-


sumer confidence, it did nothing to
help us as most Americans simply
put the money into savings.
It is time that both President Ba-
rack Obama and Congress took a
history lesson you cannot spend
Kyle Robisch your way to prosperity.
letters@alligator.org In the '60s,'70s and '80s, when
the economy was booming, presi-
dents from Kennedy all the way
through Nixon and Carter were concerned with expand-
ing an already-booming economy. Along with the Fed-
eral Reserve System, they supported fiscal and monetary
policies that increased the money supply and lowered the
interest rates, like the Fed and Congress are doing now.
The result?
Politicians and economists learned very quickly that
it's nearly impossible to control the natural boom and
bust cycles of the economy, as runaway inflation ram-
paged America. It took a federal-induced recession, led
by Paul Volcker to whip inflation and bring prices back
into check. Unfortunately, the laws of economics don't
simply change overnight.
Runaway spending and near-zero interest rates still
induce hyperinflation, and spending has a limited effect
on stimulating the economy. Maybe the best solution is
the easiest, yet the most difficult let the economy be.
Programs like the Troubled Assets Relief Program are a
good idea if the proper oversight is in place.
But increasing spending across the board is a danger-
ous, short-sighted policy that will only leave Americans
hurting more later than they are now.

Letter to the Editor
Columnist stands by satire
For those of you who don't know me, or for
those of you who I have offended, I apologize
if you took the meaning of my column to be
anything but satire. As an effective satire only
mirrors reality, I stand by what I have written
for a few reasons.
First, as you'll notice, I picked onboth sides,
stereotyping both into wild exaggerations,


which included picking on the "good" side of
the room. Second, everything from the Little
Rascals to the Boston Tea Party was a joke.
So for that, Kelly Korman, I wouldn't
change the gorilla line for accuracy. If I wrote
"a flannel shirt-wearing tomboy" instead of
"girl" as I did in a later draft, Emily Congdon
would be hurling eggs at my window.
As for my distinguished rivals, they dis-


tinguish themselves only by the amount of
mud they sling back. Korman and Congdon
churned offhand remarks into cannon fodder
and ought to keep their hands from such vil-
lainous slander. Rock beats scissors, and jour-
nalism beats the English department.
For me, you see, it's the little things in life
that are the great injustices. Like having to put
up with bad music. If you devote your time


FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7


to trying to solve the most miniscule of is-
sues, the most mundane debates, such as this
one, you will be left empty-handed. There's a
quote that goes: "Analyzing a joke is like dis-
secting a frog. Few people are interested, and
the frog dies of it."
The defense rests. I'm going to the gym.

Support Daily Emerald staff


n Wednesday morning, the entire
editorial staff of the Daily Emerald -
the student-produced newspaper at
the University of Oregon went on strike in
protest of the attempts of its board of direc-
tors to install a publisher with unprecedented
control over the newsroom.
Today, college newspapers across the
country stand in solidarity with the editorial
staff of the Daily Emerald in support of the
independent collegiate press and student-
controlled editorial content. We are deeply
dismayed by the short-sighted actions of the
Emerald's board of directors and strongly
support the strike until the staff's demands
are met, and independent student journalism
can be safeguarded from such attacks at the
Emerald and on college campuses nation-
wide.
On Thursday the board of directors had
the audacity to publish their own version
of the Oregon Daily Emerald using content
from The Associated Press and a front-page
statement from the board. This move is as of-
fensive as it is unwise.
In November, the board of directors hired
Emerald alumnus Steven A. Smith as a con-
sultant, and he drafted a plan which included
a call to hire a publisher. Smith then authored
the publisher's job description as well as his
own terms of employment for the position,
which the board approved without negotia-
tion.
On Feb. 24, the board voted to hire Smith
as the Emerald's publisher, and to give him
unprecedented control over the full paper's
operation, including supervising the editor
in chief. Smith could also have been concur-
rently employed by the university, creating a
clear path for the university to control what


Bryan Thomas should be student edi-
Speaking Out torial content.
In the face of the
strike, Smith has de-
cided to withdraw his decision to accept the
position. Today the Emerald staff demands
a nationwide search for a new publisher,
whose authority would not extend over the
editor and who would not be employed by
the university.
The Emerald, like many papers across the
country, is in dire financial straits and faces
the possibility of closure. This financial reali-
ty, however, should not force the staff to com-
promise their guiding ethics as journalists or
to sacrifice the paper's autonomy. The deci-
sion seems to be a callous overreaching by
the board and the university, and an attempt
to take advantage of a financially struggling,
but influential student organization.
We are living in a tough time for the
newspaper business. Now more than ever,
we must stand strong and stand together to
maintain our editorial independence any
measure of overarching interference in con-
tent undermines our journalistic standards
and is unacceptable, no matter the financial
situation.
Practicing journalism under the possibil-
ity of censorship and the meddling influence
of an administration undermines the purpose
of a free press we hope that the Emerald's
board will recognize this undeniable fact and
immediately meet the staff's demands. Until
then, we stand with the Oregon Daily Emer-
ald.
Bryan Thomas is the editor in chief of the UC
Berkeley Daily Californian. Thirty-four college
newspapers, including the Alligator, stand in
solidarity with the Daily Emerald.

Fashion Week fits Gainesville


nd ignorance claims another vic-
tim Matthew Meltzer.
In his bashing of Gainesville
Fashion Week, Meltzer failed to recog-
nize the point of the event. He claimed
that festivals have to do with the city
they're located in, and that Gainesville
isn't synonymous with "fashion."
All right then, let's test his logic. If
this isn't Gainesville, Germany, why do
we have a beer festival? If it isn't the 16th
century, and we don't live in Eastern Eu-
rope, why have a Hoggetowne Renais-
sance Faire? Sounds to me like Meltzer
wants to get rid of all the fun.
The purpose of Gainesville Fashion
Week is not the same as "America's Next
Top Model" or "Project Runway." Mod-
els aren't walking the catwalk to get no-
ticed by Vogue, and designers aren't au-
ditioning for Heidi Klum. The purpose
of GFW is to provide an outlet for artists
to showcase their work.
Besides that, GFW presents an oppor-
tunity for members of the community to
come together and celebrate, just as an
art show would. Make-up artists paint on
dramatic faces; stylists sculpt outrageous
hairdos. Professional models and local
faces alike strut down the runway. Lo-
cal painters and photographers gather to
display their artwork around GFW ven-
ues and cheer each other's hard work.
While all of this is going on, both stu-
dent and professional photographers are


Nicole Dambro shooting photos.
le Dambro Why, you ask?
Speaking Out Certainly not for
compensation or
recognition, but just for one common
goal the right to express themselves.
The point is that these people who
are contributing to Gainesville Fashion
Week are doing something great for the
community without any ulterior mo-
tives. After all, art and the freedom of
expression bring people together and
unite the community. GFW is promoting
harmony between the people and busi-
nesses involved, and it helps local artists
gain feedback and experience.
By stereotyping GFW as "a seven-day
collection of No. 15 jerseys and Urban
Meyer gameday polos," you are not only
cheapening a wonderfully done event,
but contributing to the small-minded-
ness this town needs to get away from.
Seriously, what ever happened to the
idea that college towns are supposed to
represent the truest marketplace of ideas?
After all, Gainesville isn't just a small
town; it's a collection of people from all
walks of life. I challenge you, Matthew
Meltzer, and those who think like you, to
step outside of your bubble and realize
that just because we live in a small town,
it doesn't mean we have to act like we're
going to be stuck here forever.

munications senior.

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

Family petitions law to commissioners after tragedy


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The family of the man who
was found dead in a car near UF's
campus is taking a stand.
Kristina Torres, the daughter
of John F. Waldo, and Monica
Kraft, Waldo's fiance, addressed
city commissioners at Thursday's
meeting.
"We can't bring him back, but
we can sit here and try to pass a
law," Kraft said.
This law, proposed to com-
missioners as a petition, requests
that city, county and state police
agencies collaborate more with
one another.


It also asks that police run the
vehicle identification number and
tag any car that is ticketed.
As Waldo lay dead for 12 days,
the car he was in was ticketed
seven times.
Waldo was reported missing
Feb. 11. His body was found Feb.
23.
Waldo's family said they hope
that by requiring further mea-
sures when ticketing vehicles,
situations like the one they expe-
rienced could be avoided.
"We would like to see it go
into effect as soon as possible so
no other families suffer," Kraft
said.
The commission referred the

"Roam towing has been

Gainesville City Commissioner

matter to the Public Safety Com-
mittee.
The committee will bring back
a recommendation after review-
ing the family's requests.
After the conclusion of public
comment, the commission pro-
ceeded with other business.
This included an ordinance


that allows tow companies to
boot vehicles parked on private
property.
The ordinance passed unani-
mously on its first reading with
Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodi-
casa and Mayor Pegeen Hanra-
han absent.
Similar to the city's roam
towing law, the ordinance pro-
vides guidelines for booting in
Gainesville. The fee to remove
the boot is set at $60.
There is currently no city or-
dinance governing booting. To
become law, the ordinance must
be approved a second time at the
March 19 meeting.
If passed at that meeting, the


ordinance will be effective im-
mediately. Some commissioners
expressed concern that booting
guidelines would only create
more headaches, similar to issues
surrounding roam towing.
"Roam towing has been a real
can of worms," said Commis-
sioner Craig Lowe. "I'm wonder-
ing if we're, without realizing it,
opening up another can."
Other commissioners said the
important thing was that prop-
erty owners be given the right to
boot vehicles, regardless of their
opinions of it.
"It's good public policy to
have the option," Commissioner
Thomas Hawkins said.

Venezuelan journalist speaks to locals about Chavez


Venezuelan journalist, politician and
economist Teodoro Petkoff spoke about
the Venezuelan media and Hugo Chivez's
government during an informal discussion
Thursday.
About 25 Gainesville residents, stu-
dents, faculty and staff participated in the
bilingual discussion.


Petkoff, the founder and editor-in-chief
of the Venezuelan newspaper Tal Cual,
which is critical of Chavez, described the
Venezuelan media's history of censorship
and violence.
"Between media and governments, al-
ways there are frictions, always, and our
country was not an exception," he said.


Petkoff said that freedom of the press
has gradually increased in Venezuela, but
the press must remain cau-
On tious.
Campus He said Chavez is also
trying to create a block of
tax-funded state-run TV channels. Private
channels still exist, but Chavez aims to


dominate the country's viewpoint, Petkoff
said.
He said the government uses his taxes to
attack him, and Chavez does not have the
legal or moral right to do that.
"I am very critical of the government,
very irreverent even," he said.

ON CAMPUS

More than 1,000


attend symphony
Powerful music filled the air and the audience sat with
awestruck expressions as the UF Symphony Orchestra per-
formed Thursday night.
Under the baton of conductor Matthew Wardell, the UF
Symphony Orchestra played for about 1,000 people at the
Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, the best-attended UF
orchestra concert ever, Wardell said.
The first half of the concert showcased concerto competi-
tion winners Yefim Romanov and Anastasia Naplekova.
Romanov, the undergraduate winner, performed Tchaik-
ovsky's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra and Naplekova fol-
lowed on piano with Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme
of Paganini. Both pieces resulted in an encore and a standing
ovation for the soloists.
In her nine years of working for UF, Mutlu Citim-Kepic
said this was one of the best Symphony Orchestra concerts
she has been to.
After intermission, the orchestra performed Bl6a Bart6k's
Miraculous Mandarin, accompanied by a ballet with the UF
school of Theater and Dance.
The Mandarin tells a story of a girl forced to seduce men
so her thugs could beat them and steal their money. In the
end, the message that all beings deserve satisfaction was por-
trayed through the character of the Mandarin, who repeat-
edly defies death to gain the girl's acceptance.

national University and Florida
State University campuses that
also use Aramark for campus
dining services. She started a Fa-
cebook group called "Bring Pollo
Tropical to the Reitz Union" in
February 2007 and set up a site
for students to petition for the
Latin cuisine.
Murray was surprised when
about 1,200 people joined the
group and 307 students peti-
tioned, she said.
Pollo Tropical's construction
is set to begin March 10, Rodri-
guez said.
Students can still access the
UF Bookstore from the food court
during construction.
Some students will miss the
Italian restaurant.
"I've been to Capeesh probably


a handful of times since I came to
UF, and I haven't had any com-

actually kind of disappointing
that they're changing it."
Nekeshia McInnis, a health
science sophomore, never found
Capeesh appealing

Campus Polio Tropical.
"I'm so tired of
eating just fast food on this cam-
pus," McInnis said. "There needs
to be more variety."
Rodriguez didn't respond to
an e-mail question about the cost
of constructing the new restau-
rant. But she said the restaurant
will bring more variety to the
campus community.
"Gator Dining Services is al-
ways looking for ways to meet

UF Student Affair's warning about Mexico attacks does not worry travelers

nessee to helping New Orleans continue
its Hurricane Katrina recovery.
Florida Alternative Breaks, which be-
gan in the early '90s to help Hurricane
Andrew victims, finds free or cheap hous-
ing at different destinations. Volunteers
usually sleep at churches or community
centers.
FAB also helps students raise money
for their trips. The money is distributed
evenly so that all domestic trips cost the
same, regardless of destination.
"That way, someone doesn't pick a trip


based on the cost," he said. "They choose
based on what issue they want to work on
or learn about."
Perrone said that the things students
see when they travel abroad can make
them aware of issues facing Gainesville,
such as poverty.
"There are benefits you get out of this
type of experience that you wouldn't get
out of other types of spring break," he
said.
Florida Alternative Breaks is not the
only way to have a selfless spring break.
Jenna Harris, a freshman journalism
major at UF, is going to Monterrey, Mexico
with the Theta Alpha Christian sorority to

Harris said she sent out letters asking
for financial support from people in her
community and local businesses, which
helped her pay for the trip.
"If I didn't have the money, I wasn't go-


ing to be able to go," she said.
Despite a recent e-mail from the UF
Division of Student Affairs warning stu-
dents to be careful if traveling to Mexico
during spring break, Harris said she isn't
worried.
The e-mail said that there has been a re-
cent increase in violent attacks.
Harris said she and her friends will
stick together and use common sense to
stay out of danger, and that they won't let
the warning stop them from carrying out
their plans of helping people and having
fun.
"God said go," she said. "So that's what
we're going to do."

Burton takes recruiting for 2010 into own hands


By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

Between the Gators bedspread,
the closet full of UF apparel, the
national championship Wheaties
boxes and the posters, it's clear
why Trey Burton's college deci-
sion was easy.
Burton, a junior quarterback
at Venice High, wasted little time
orally committing to the Gators
last July, almost two years before
he was scheduled to graduate
from high school.
"Ever since I was around 6
years old, I've always loved Flori-
da," Burton said.
Not only did such an early de-


cision keep other coaches off his
phone line, it allowed the option
quarterback to become the de fac-
to head of UF's recruiting class.
The day he orally committed,
Burton sent a text to Ian Silber-
man, then the only other player in
the Gators' 2010 class.
Silberman is an offensive line-
man who moves exceptionally
well, a characteristic often seen
in left tackles the protector of
a quarterback's blind side. Burton
estimates that they text three or
four times a week.
Now, the dual-threat quarter-
back's attention is more on sway-
ing uncommitted players.
"I'm a big competitor, and I


want to win. I'll do pretty much
whatever it takes," Burton said. "I
know that bringing some of these
kids in, they're going to make me
better and I'm going to make them
better."
When Burton heard the UF
coaching staff was looking at Li-
thonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King
running back Mack Brown, he
made it a priority to meet him at
the Under Armour All-America
Combine in January.
Burton and Brown became fast
friends they text message fre-
quently and Burton let Brown
know where he should commit.
"I told him straight up, he's
one of the kids I want to play with

Gators oral commit Trey Burton takes in the atmosphere during Sunday's basketball game between the
UF and Tennessee in the O'Connell Center. The quarterback will be in the 2010 recruiting class.


when I get up there, and that's it,"
Burton said.
Burton said he won't force
Brown to make a decision, but he
knows a backfield consisting of
him and Brown could make for an
exciting offense in the future.

"I'm a big competitor, and
I want to win. I'll do pretty
much whatever it takes."
Trey Burton
UF quarterback commit

Like any good recruiter, how-
ever, Burton knows not to focus
on just one player.
He has been friends with line-
backer Christian Jones for two
years.
Burton met Jones at a summer
basketball tournament and found
out first-hand what the 6-foot-4,
220-pounder is capable of doing.
"He dunked on me pretty
good," Burton said with a laugh.
Jones' flash of athleticism left
such an impression on Burton that
he urged UF coaches to take a look
at the Winter Park Lake Howell
linebacker. The Gators offered
Jones a scholarship on Feb. 27.
"Every kid that has a pretty
good shot, that's a really good
player, I tell them about," Burton
said.
This is not new for UF. Tim
Tebow's commitment to UF in
December 2005 paved the way for
commitments from Percy Harvin
- who declared six days after
Tebow and Brandon Spikes,
and the Gators' 2007 recruiting
class featured seven players from
Lakeland High. That group was
essentially recruited to Gainesville
by running back Chris Rainey,
who committed in May 2006.
The trend of high-profile re-
cruits using text messaging to per-
suade other players to join their
class began about five years ago.
According to the wireless trade


association CTIA, 40 percent of
teens owned cell phones in 2004.
That is about the time highly
touted Penn State commitments
Justin King and Derrick Williams
started convincing other national-
ly ranked recruits to become Nit-
tany Lions. The next year, a young
Penn State team captured a share
of the Big Ten Conference title.
And as the number of teenag-
ers with cell phones rises (CTIA
estimates 80 percent now own
them), so does the number of sto-
ries of high school players recruit-
ing each other.
"That is what spurred it on
more than anything, the technol-
ogy," said Rivals.com recruiting
analyst Jamie Newberg.
Even with technology, Burton's
effort has been extraordinary. In
addition to Silberman, Brown and
Jones, the athletic playmaker con-
sistently talks with Ocala Trinity
Catholic wideout Kadron Boone,
Royal Palm Beach receiver Chris
Dunkley and Bradenton Southeast
safety Jonathan Dowling, UF's lat-
est oral commit.
The defensive back said Burton
asked over and over when he was
going to become a Gator.
"I like to recruit," Burton said.
"I definitely want the best class in
2010."
Oral commitments are non-bind-
ing until a national letter-of-intent
is signed on National Signing Day
on Feb. 3, 2010.

UF GYMNASTICS

Hartung to sit on Senior Night with torn calf muscle


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

On a night Corey Hartung envisioned
waving to the crowd after her floor exer-
cise, she instead will face the harsh real-
ity of not competing, waving to the crowd
from the floor with her family, dressed up
to cheer and coach while wearing a protec-
tive boot.
Hartung, the lone senior on the team,
will be honored tonight in the O'Connell
Center as No. 4 UF (5-3, 3-3 Southeastern
Conference) hosts its last home meet of the
season against No. 14 Michigan (13-3), but
she won't be competing because of a tear
in her left calf muscle.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn wants to rest
her until the start of the SEC Champion-
ships.
Not only will the night, one focused
on Hartung, be emotionally tough for the


team, it will also impact the team's line-
up.
Hartung, an all-around competitor,
performed against Georgia last week on
uneven bars and balance beam, but has
even been scratched from those two events
tonight in hopes to get her healthy for the
postseason.
While looking back on Hartung's ca-
reer, Faehn said she didn't remember dual
meets. Instead, she remembered the big
meets, such as the national championship
and regional meets.
It's a point she has been trying to stress
to Hartung, as hard as it's been for Har-
tung to accept in the heat of the moment.
"Really what I was trying to do was
just trying to give her some perspective,"
Faehn said.
"I really just wanted her to try and fo-
cus on all the unbelievable things she did
so far and still all the great things that lie


ahead."
Hartung realizes she is being honored
for her four years at UF and that, as hard
as it will be not to compete, it doesn't out-
weigh the four years of competitions she
has been a part of.
"It's not about one night being able to
perform, it's about your
experiences you had,"
Hartung said. "I'm not
being honored for com-
peting against Michigan
(tonight), it's just a meet.
It happens to be Senior
Hartung Night."
If the Gators want to
push their home record to a perfect 5-0,
other gymnasts will need to fill the void
left by Hartung, something the team has
had to do all year while battling injuries.
Juniors Ashley Kerr and Courtney
Gladys will see more duty, with Kerr fill-


ing the sixth spot on the vault lineup and
Gladys performing in every event.
The team is also welcoming back junior
Amanda Castillo, who competed on floor
for the first time this season in Athens, Ga.,
after recovering from bursitis.
"You don't want to be pulled out of the
lineup. You don't want to be hurt," Cas-
tillo said.
"You know the team is struggling and
you know you can help. And then when
you can't, it's one of the worst feelings in
the world."
Castillo, who is familiar with the feel-
ing of being hampered by an injury, said
she's dedicating her performance tonight
to Hartung.
"I'm going to compete from my heart,
for Corey," Castillo said. "We need to
make it fun. We need to go out there and

UF WOMEN'S GOLF

Gators head to UCF tournament


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

Although the UF women's golf team will be a couple
hours away from Gainesville, it will feel very much at
home in this weekend's tournament.
The No. 28 Gators will make the short drive to Or-
lando and play in the UCF Challenge on Sunday.
The tournament will feature four of the top five
ranked teams in the country: No. 1 Arizona State, No. 2
UCLA, No. 3 Southern Cal and No. 5 Alabama.
After two inconsistent performances to start the
spring, coach Jill Briles-Hinton believes the Gators must
have a short memory in order to stay consistent and con-
tend in this tough field.
"In order to mentally be stronger, you have to take it
one shot at a time," Briles-Hinton said. "Forget about the
shot you hit, forget about the past and move on."
One thing UF will have on its side is the advantage of
playing dose to home.
The previous two events for the team were in dif-
ferent states one in California and the other in South
Carolina.
The Gators are excited to finally play a tournament
in Florida.


"The girls like to play in front of their fans, so that is
going to be fun," Briles-Hinton said.
Sophomore Jessica Yadloczky grew up close to Or-
lando and has experience on the tournament's golf
course.
"Jessica has seen the course before, and it's in her
backyard," Briles-Hinton said.
"In order to mentally be stronger, you
have to take it one shot at a time."
Jill Briles-Hinton
UF women's golf coach

The Gators' lineup for the tournament will comprise
Yadloczky, Evan Jensen, Andrea Watts, Lauren Uzelatz
and Nicole Schachner.
With four of the five UF golfers being Florida natives,
playing in the state could work to the team's advantage.
However, that won't be the only thing the Gators will
rely on.
Hard work and a difficult early schedule have quick-
ly toughened up this young team.
"They've been challenged this year, and they've been
working hard," Briles-Hinton said.

In a way, UF was victorious in
the Southeastern Conference Indoor
Championships. The team didn't
win the championship trophy in
Lexington, Ky., but it got the next
best thing experience.
With the NCAA Indoor Champi-
onships coming up on March 13-14,
UF's SEC Championship perfor-
mance had an impact beyond the
final standings. It gave the Gators
confidence and a sense of where
they stand among some of the elite
teams in the country.
To qualify for competition in Col-
lege Station, Texas, next weekend,
15 of UF's athletes will participate
in two last-chance meets this week-
end.

In Kentucky, UF's men faced
seven of the top 25 teams in the U.S.
Track & Field and Cross Country
Coaches Association poll and placed
second, while the women went up
against five of the
top 25 and fin-
ished fourth.
When the
NCAA Indoor
Championships
begin in Texas,
UF will face some
Holloway of those SEC
teams, and their
experience at the SEC Champion-
ships will prepare them for the most
important part of the season.
"The SEC meet is great prepa-
ration for the NCAA meet," coach
Mike Holloway said. "We're, in my
mind, easily the toughest league in
America, and if you can get through
the SEC, when you get to the NCAA
meet, it's the usual suspects, the


same characters that you see all the
time."
When UF faces those familiar
opponents at the NCAA Champi-
onships, the team knows a little bit
of what to expect and can focus on
the things that prevented them from
finishing in first place against SEC
teams last weekend.
Holloway said the team is pleased
but not satisfied with its efforts in
Kentucky, so it is "just working on
the small technical things" before
the NCAA Championships begin.
When the Gators arrive in Texas
next weekend, they will shift their
attention to the task at hand the
NCAA Championships but Hol-
loway wants them to maintain the
same focus that carried them to SEC
Championship success.
"The thing that we have to un-
derstand is that when we get to the
NCAA meet, we have to just go
there and do what we've always
done," Holloway said. "We can't go
there and worry about other teams
and what they're doing."

Tennis teams


open SEC play
By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

Following its first road win of the spring, the No. 9 UF
men's tennis team returns to Gainesville as the best in the
state.
The Gators' 5-2 victory over FSU on Tuesday was the lat-
est addition to their dominating run against Florida teams.
The Seminoles joined Central Florida, South Florida and Mi-
ami on UF's victims list.
Today, the team meets a whole new beast. UF has its
sights set on the entire southeast as it starts conference play
against No. 11 Kentucky at 3 p.m.
The Gators (9-3, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) are one of
six SEC teams ranked in the top 25. Coach Andy Jackson
said any team can win on any given day.
"(Kentucky has) already been to Tennessee, who is No.
5, and won," Jackson said. "So it's going
to be a big test, and we're looking forward
to it."
The Wildcats bring the No. 2 singles
player, Bruno Agostinelli, with them to
Gainesville. UF's Carlos Cueto will likely
meet him on Court 1. Cueto defeated the
nation's No. 2 player LSU's Michael
Jackson Venus at the SEC Indoor before the
regular season began.
The Gators will get a day's rest before hosting Vanderbilt
at 1 p.m. Sunday.
WOMEN PREP FOR SEC PLAY: The UF women have had it
tough recently. In their loss at FSU, the Gators had only five
scholarship players on the roster.
They've been through a brutal schedule and have been
missing Megan Alexander on Court 3. The junior sat out the
last four matches with a sore back.
They have lost four of their last six, three of which were at
a 4-3 final score and all to top 25 opponents on the road.
Now they will have to claw their way back up the rank-
ings after falling 18 spots from 13 to 31. They'll have to do it
against the SEC starting at 1 p.m. today in Kentucky.
The No. 14 Wildcats are followed by Vanderbilt on Sun-
day. UF's conference schedule has the team playing the
same opponent as the men on the same day at the opposite
venue.
"We got a little taste of the indoors playing indoors (on
Feb. 13-15), and more than likely those two will be indoors,"
coach Roland Thornqvist said.
"Our players are confident now that they can make the
transition. That was certainly accomplished up in Madi-
son."

Senior's injury forces lineup changes


* MICHELLE MOULTRIE
WILL START IN CENTER.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

The UF softball team will
have to face more than just the
start of its Southeastern Con-
ference season this weekend at
South Carolina. The Gators will
also have to try to fill the hole in
their lineup left by injured cen-
ter fielder Kim Waleszonia.
No. 2 UF (19-2) will be with-
out Waleszonia, who went
down with a tibial plateau frac-
ture in her left knee Saturday.


Waleszonia had not missed a
start in her 234-game career
before missing two games after
sustaining the injury.
Waleszonia hit second in the
lineup and led the outfield from
her spot in center field, so mak-
ing up for the loss of the senior
won't occur overnight.
"I don't think we can ever
replace Kim," second baseman
Aja Paculba said. "The best
thing we can do is just continue
to play how we've been playing
and fill the void by doing the
things we know how to do."
Fortunately for the Gators,
they have been doing a lot of
things well lately. The team is


riding an eight-game winning
streak into the three-day, con-
ference-opening series against
the Gamecocks (12-2) and has
scored 59 total runs during the
streak, allowing only 13 com-
bined runs in those games.
For UF coach Tim Walton,
though, none of that matters, as
he views Friday as a new begin-
ning for his team.
"19-2 that's a good mark,
but everything's kind of 0-0
now as we get ready for the
SEC," Walton said.
Walton said he is still un-
sure of a long-term solution
for replacing Waleszonia, but
he plans to start freshman Mi-


UF sophomore Aja Paculba bunts during the Gators' 7-2 win against Illinois on Sunday. Paculba,
who now bats leadoff, switched spots in the batting order with Kim Waleszonia early this year.


chelle Moultrie in center field
this weekend.
While Walton believes Moul-
trie is talented enough to per-
form at the plate, he still intends
to take a wait-and-see approach
on the fielding situation.
The coach is confident that
Moultrie has the speed and ath-
leticism to get on base, but the
freshman's lack of experience
in the field could be an issue in
conference play, leading Wal-
ton to consider splitting time
between Moultrie and senior
Brooke Johnson.
"(Moultrie's) super fast.
Anything that's on the ground,
it's a hit," Walton said. "I think
she's going to be the piece, and
where we put her is yet to be
determined."
If Moultrie does move up in
the lineup, it will allow right
fielder Kelsey Bruder to move
back to her previous position in
the middle of the order.
Bruder, who has four home
runs this season and is tied for
second on the team with 18
RBIs, hit second Sunday in the
Gators' first games without
Waleszonia.
"I still need to provide pro-
tection for Francesca (Enea),"
Walton said. "Kelsey provides
that home-run power, that
home-run threat. Whether she's
struck out two times before or
not, she's still going to poten-
tially hit the next ball out of the
ballpark."
Although Bruder won't be
able to look over to center field
to see Waleszonia, she thinks
the senior's leadership will still
help guide the team through
the season.
"She'll be in the dugout with
us, so we'll still have her loud
voice and all her cheers and her
enthusiasm," Bruder said.


Guard hopes to pursue professional career in Europe after graduation from UF


HODGE, from page 24

my last game at the O'Dome. I want
to finish it the right way."
While Hodge, a member of both
of the Gators' national champion-
ship teams, has remained in the
starting lineup this season, he has
often played fewer minutes than
Erving Walker late in games.
"Erving is playing really well
down the stretch against Tennes-
see. And as a senior, he's sitting


there watching and cheering for
Erving Walker to do it and help
us win," Donovan said. "He never
says a word, never cops an attitude,
doesn't pout. He's always put Flor-
ida above himself."
Hodge says once his basketball
career at UF comes to an end he
hopes to pursue a professional ca-
reer overseas.
"I want to go pro and probably
go to Europe, but that's all in God's
hands," he said.


That's months away, however.
Right now, Hodge is still focused
on the task at hand.
"We can still
do something
special," Hodge
said. "We have
to win this game
Saturday and get
that confidence
back."
Hodge The senior
says a run in next week's SEC Tour-


nament is still not out of the ques-
tion either.
"It's possible," Hodge said.
"Georgia did it last year, so why
can't we do it?"
CALATHES' BENCHING A LEARN-
ING EXPERIENCE: Nick Calathes
watched from the bench as his team
failed to rally from behind against
Mississippi State in the game's
closing minutes Wednesday.
Donovan said he wasn't punish-
ing the point guard, and he thought


watching would be a good learning
experience for his leading scorer.
"He has an incredible drive to
make an effort at the end of games,
but he has to understand how to in-
corporate other people," Donovan
said Thursday.
"When you're the best player
on the team, you feel like you have
to do it. But you have to be think-
ing about time and score, who has
the hot hand, what's the best situ-
ation."


Fielding, offense struggling since victories against Eastern Michigan last week


BASE, from page 24

it happened tonight."
Using Keating to finish up the remaining
innings was a clear sign of the importance of
the bullpen and its lack of dependability to
this point in the season.
The pitchers understand that their re-
sponsibility is to perform when called upon
whether as a starter or reliever.
"(O'Sullivan's) just trying to put things


together to where we can win ball games,"
Keating said.
Welcoming a winless Duquesne team
to McKethan Stadium should give UF the
chance to do exactly that.
The Gators have struggled in all aspects
of the game and have failed to put together
a complete showing since romping Eastern
Michigan by a combined score of 29-6 over a
two-game series last week.
In the last five games, UF has committed


12 errors while scoring just 19 runs.
"We got to have some older guys step up
and stop the bleeding, and we got to have
Some younger guys grow
up in a hurry," O'Sullivan
said.
Freshman Nick Maronde
Baseball is scheduled to start Satur-
day's game, and Keating
will take a few extra days off after his relief
appearance, moving to Sunday's spot in the


rotation.
Keating said there won't be any finger-
pointing after the recent skid and that the
entire team has simply "been playing bad
lately."
"Everybody's been upset, but you can't
focus on bad things all the time," Keating
said. "Baseball is a tough game both men-
tally and physically. There's a lot of games.
You're out here everyday, and that's where
the mental toughness comes in."

Dotson was the only other
player in double figures (10).
What stands out to Brooks just
as much about that game was her
team's defensive effort.
UF held Tennessee to 57
points.
"That wasn't my best perfor-
mance," Brooks said. "I know I
missed a lot of free throws, a lot
of layups. But we're going to have
to be really tough on defense and
stop their shooters and stop the
penetration and stop them from
scoring in the paint."

We've just all got to fight for

The winner of Friday's quar-
terfinal will advance to take on
the winner of No. 1-seed Auburn

it's so wide open," Brooks said.

have to look at the teams that are
really working hard this year to
be a champion. That's what we're

The Gators aren't exactly used
to this.
No. 4 seed UF sat and watched
No. 5 seed Tennessee and No.

Thursday night in the first round
of the Southeastern Conference
Tournament, waiting to see who it
would play.
The watching and waiting is
over.

face No. 19 Tennessee (21-9, 9-5
SEC) tonight at 7:30 in the quar-
terfinals of the SEC Tournament in
North Little Rock, Ark.
The Gators held the head-to-
head tiebreaker with the Volun-
teers for the first-round bye, hav-
ing already defeated Tennessee
66-57 during the teams' first meet-
ing this season in Gainesville on
Feb. 8.

"We've got to feel good about
putting ourselves in the position


where on Thursday we get to
watch and hopefully get an up-
per hand on the team that we'll be

There won't be any home-court
advantage for the Gators this time

is anything UF will have an edge
in, it's rest and preparation.

Hodge nears career's end


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Even tears couldn't wash away the
disappointment.
As time runs out on the Gators' season,
and his career, senior Walter Hodge is
left to wonder where it all went wrong.
The guard has won more games (113)
than any player in the history of UF bas-
ketball.
"He's on the bench last night cry-
ing. Like emotionally crying, because he
wants to win and he's trying to implore
our guys," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"When you see someone like him care
that much, you want that to be a reflec-
tion of what your program is about."
With their loss to Mississippi State on
Wednesday night, UF's (21-9, 8-7 South-
eastern Conference) tournament hopes
are all but dashed.
For the second time in two years, it's
likely that Hodge and the Gators will be
watching March Madness in between
their own National Invitation Tourna-
ment games.

that's life. You have to keep going."
Hodge will play his last regular-
season home game Saturday when UF

O'Sullivan shuffles staff


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

If things continue to go poorly for UF
in this weekend's three-game home series
with Duquesne, it won't be because coach
Kevin O'Sullivan has been unwilling to
shake up the pitching staff.
The Gators (6-4) have lost four of their
last five contests, prompting O'Sullivan to
make some changes with his hurlers.
Junior Jeff Barfield, who was projected
to be a reliever, made his first start for UF
on Tuesday against Stetson, earning a vic-
tory in 6 2/3 innings. No. 1 starter Patrick
Keating made a relief appearance against
Florida Atlantic on Wednesday, picking
up the loss despite allowing just 1 run
over the final three innings of the game.
As a result, freshman left-hander Alex
Panteliodis (1-1, 3.09 ERA) will take the
hill tonight against the Dukes (0-8), mak-
ing the first Friday-night start of his young
career.


"Pitching is pitching," Panteliodis said.
"You just have to get out there and do
your job."
The pitching staff has struggled to pro-
duce consistent results, and the bullpen let
the game slip away against Florida Atlan-
tic after UF built a 4-0 lead through five
innings.
Veterans Tony Davis
and Billy Bullock were
credited with allowing 3
runs in 2/3 of an inning
after starter Anthony
DeSclafani was taken
out of the game. In addi-
tion, all three inherited
Panteliodis runners came across to
score for Florida Atlan-
tic, resulting in a 6-run inning that proved
to be the difference in the contest.
"It's frustrating," O'Sullivan said after
Wednesday night's loss. "It's not what
you typically see from older pitchers, but
