Earmarks, rate hikes approved by Board


a SIX MEETINGS HELD.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer

At Monday's Board of Trustees
meetings, plans to request over
$100 million in federal earmarks


for research in 2009-2010 as well
as plans to hike dorm rental rates
and parking decal prices were ap-
proved by various committees of
the board.
The full board, which is the
university's highest governing
body, will meet today to take the


final vote on the measures.
If they are passed, dorm rent
would go up by $210 a semester
for the fall and spring of 2009-
2010, an average increase of about
10 percent. Rent for the summer
would stay the same to allow UF
to be competitive in the cheap


summer housing market.
Graduate and family housing
would see increases next year
ranging from $20 to $40 a month,
or about 7 percent.
The increases are sought to
counter spikes in utilities, rising
employee salary and benefits costs


and minimum wage increases.
They will also help UF install
up-to-date features such as dou-
ble panel windows and wireless
Internet, said Patricia Telles-Irvin,
UF's vice president of Student Af-
fairs, after the meeting.

March held to


end war in Iraq

By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

Those who plan to march in the Florida March for Peace
describe themselves as militant. Their Web site displays the sil-
houettes of soldiers, weapons cocked and helmets fastened.
But these soldiers don't wield guns they brandish ba-
guettes and carrots.
The groups from across the state participating in and en-
dorsing the March 28 demonstration in Melbourne, Fla., ad-
here to Martin Luther King's belief in militant nonviolence,
which means a demanding and persistent push to alleviate
human need.
"Like King, we believe that taking on militarism is taking
on poverty. It's taking on racism. It's taking on sexism," said
Jeff Nall, Florida March for Peace Coordinator. "Essentially,
we believe it's the key to a more peaceful world and a safer
country."
The groups will begin at Front Street Park, where anti-war
activists will speak, and then will continue to the Melbourne
City Hall to hear additional speakers. The march will include
members from 60 groups across the state, including Gaines-
ville's chapter of Veterans for Peace.Nall, 29, said that he and
the other members of the host organization, Humanists for
Peace, want President Barack Obama to stop the conflicts in Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

ing Sunday night by electronically
locking the store doors.


At 5:10 p.m. at the Kangaroo at
1516 S. E. 4th Ave., the store clerk
saw a man putting items into his
black duffel bag.
When the man tried to leave the
store, the clerk electronically locked
the doors, the Gainesville Police De-
partment arrest report stated.


After the man realized the doors
were locked, the clerk asked him
what was in his bag.
Local The man pushed the
News clerk out of the way,
went to an office in the
back of the store and took the items
out of his bag, the report stated.


After he was arrested, Tommie
Nobles, 39, said he was involved
in the theft as a lookout but denied
taking the items, the report stated.
Nobles put five Glade air fresheners,
an Amoral car interior spray, and
a 32 oz. Natural Light beer into the
duffel bag.


According to the report, officials
also found half a gram of mari-
juana and a glass pipe containing
cocaine residue in his bag. Nobles
was charged with petit theft, simple
battery, possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and possession
of drug paraphernalia.

Officials: Folk ballad inspiration recaptured
LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a convict and inspi-
ration for a folk ballad about a man who stole a Wal-Mart trailer
to see his dying mother has been captured in Florida, two weeks
after escaping from custody in Georgia.
The Polk County sheriff's office says it arrested 34-year-old
Christopher Daniel Gay on Monday in the parking lot of a Lake-
land Wal-Mart in a stolen tractor-trailer. He had escaped in Ken-

The man forced the two em-

then attempted to tie the employ-

Challenge encourages people to eat local for a month


ByYVONNEAYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Carnivore, herbivore, but have
you heard of localvore?
A local Web site has challenged
Gainesville residents to eat local
foods for a month.
Registration for the 2nd Annual
Eat Local Challenge is open until
April 30, but some participants have
already committed to eat local.
"I very much believe in buying


local, and that's been true all my
life," said Rachel Kohl, a Gainesville
resident and challenge participant.
"I see these things that grow lo-
cally they've been just down the
street and slept in the dirt the night
before. I think that's part of what
makes them so delicious."
The contest kicks off May 1 and
pushes the average eater to forage
and gobble up only local and sea-
sonal foods at home or at locally
owned restaurants.


The contest is designed to make
people think about what they eat
and where it comes from, said Ste-
fanie Hamblen, founder and edi-
tor of Hogtown

Gainesville newsletter and

promotes eating and buying local

Pro-Amendment 1 signs disappear from supporters' yards


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Staff Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

When Charlene of Northwest Gainesville
woke up Friday morning, she noticed some-
thing missing from several yards in her neigh-
borhood: "Vote Yes on Amendment 1" signs.
"It's frustrating," she said. "I feel like I have
a right to express myself."
According to Jim Gilbert, a spokesperson
for Citizens for Good Public Policy, a pro-
Amendment 1 organization, roughly 100


"Vote Yes on Amendment 1" signs were sto-
len from supporter's yards between 1 a.m. and
5 a.m. Friday.
"There appears to be a coordinated effort
to steal our signs as quickly as we can place
them," Gilbert wrote in an e-mail. "Such theft
is common during election seasons, as you
probably know, but these all occurred on the
same night and all over town."
Since then, there have been multiple re-
ports of sign thefts in East Gainesville, Gilbert
wrote.
Voters will decide on March 24 wheth-
er or not Amendment 1 would nullify


There appears to be a coordinated

protections would be provided by the

Gainesville residents and loosen protections

Shelbi Day, a spokeswoman for Equality is

"We're focusing all of our energy on getting
out our message, and our signs," Day said.
GPD spokesman Keith Kameg was un-

sign owners were unavailable at the time of
publication.

GAINESVILLE CITY COMMISSION

Commissioner exudes 'normalcy'


By MARA RUDOLPH
Alligator Contributing Writer
Mix one part city commissioner, half an Italian, a smidge of
Georgia Bulldog, a Beastie Boy lover and a full serving of nor-
malcy, and you get Jeanna Mastrodicasa.
It is the normalcy that surprises many people, considering
Mastrodicasa is Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs. She
is also up for reelection as city commissioner.
"A lot of the city staff tell me that I'm so normal that's actu-
ally a recurring thing," she said. "I don't like a lot of recogni-
tion. That's kind of the opposite of being an elected official. It all
sounds really fancy, but I'm just a regular person."
She enjoys spending time with her dog, Oliver, a mutt she
rescued in 2004 after her terrier, Snoop Dogg, died. She likes to
cook and spend time with her husband, Clay Sweger, a land
planner for a small engineering firm. She loves "Harold and Ku-
mar go to White Castle" and "Bend it Like Beckham," and keeps
a box of Run-DMC figurines in her office.
Mastrodicasa attributed some of this normalcy to her small-
town upbringing in Pittsfield, Ma., which had a population of
less than 50,000 people when she was growing up.
"The nearest mall was an hour away. There were no chain
restaurants," she said. "It was a big deal to go to a big chain
restaurant."
Despite its small-town feel, Mastrodicasa said her home
population was full of different ethnicities, with heavy Italian,
Polish and Irish influences.


While at UGA, Mastrodicasa found a new passion in sports.
In her seven years of schooling there, she only missed one home
football game. She remains a Bulldog fan today.
"It's a challenge being a Georgia fan in Gator country. I miss
Athens. It is my inner happiness," she said.
She graduated with a public relations degree in 1992 and
stayed for three more years to earn a Juris Doctor at the law
school.
In 1997, Mastrodicasa moved to Gainesville
to become an academic and pre-law advisor
at UF. Two years later, she was appointed
assistant dean of students and eventually be-
came associate director with the UF's honors
program.
But by 1999, Mastrodicasa was looking for
Mastrodicasa a task more involved with the community.
"I was ready for a new personal challenge.
I was in a rut," Mastrodicasa said.
Having been active with the Alachua County Democrats, she
decided to run for city commissioner.
"It was one of the best things I ever did, but it was also very
scary. Two days before the election I said to myself, 'Is this really
a good idea?'" she said. "But it got me off the couch and interact-
ing with people."
Since her election in 2006, Mastrodicasa's "normal" could be
synonymous with "busy," but she loves it.
"I like coming to work every day," Mastrodicasa said. "If
you don't love what you do, it's gonna be a really long day ev-
ery day."

- from the bottom up."
Nall said he hopes the march will incite a cul-
tural shift away from militarism so that govern-
ment money can be used for human need.
"It's an initiation into a differ-
State ent way of looking at the world,"
Nw he said. "I think it's going to be
w huge."
According to Nall, the march is
a bipartisan effort, including fiscal conservatives
and liberals.
"What you find is simply a broad range of
people who are appalled by the spending on
militarism," he said.
Nall said that while some people think the an-
ti-war movement fizzled after the '60s and '70s,
it is very much alive. But the Florida March for
Peace will be no flower-power fest, Nall said.
"The kind, gentle suggestions of 'give peace
a chance' are done with," he said. "We are de-
manding that militarism be brought to a halt and
human needs are put ahead of greed."

Bailout Buster

Obama takes hard line

against AIG spending

Kudos to President Barack Obama for standing up to
AIG's outlandish intentions of paying out over $100 mil-
ion worth of bonuses to top executives.
Yes, that AIG.
Calling upon his Secretary of Treasury on Monday, Obama
asked Timothy F. Geithner to do whatever legally possible to
block the company from handing out the bonuses especially
considering the $170 billion given to AIG since last fall.
According to a New York Times article, the government
does not plan on taking the company to court but rather seeks
to ensure that there is greater transparency with regard to how
the bailout money is being allocated.
What's most absurd is the logic behind AIG's intentions to
pay out the bonuses by hiding behind the fact that language in
employees' contracts leaves them legally obligated.
Hmm, considering that the federal government now owns
80 percent of the company, it seems troubling at best that AIG
remains hell-bent on unnecessarily draining taxpayers' money.
The Obama administration made a shrewd move in taking a
clear-cut stance against AIG's actions as public perception of the
president will largely be linked to how bailout money succeeds
in remedying America's current economic crisis.
To have turned a blind eye to an ever-growing blight upon
America would have cast a shroud of doubt on Obama's future
plans that may include additional financial packages for other
entities.
Hardly the recipe for success for a president merely two
months on the job.


Paper in Peril


Sloday marks another sad
day in journalism his-
tory- the closing of Se-
attle's oldest newspaper, the
Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
The paper's parent com-
pany, Hearst Co., put the P-I
up for sale in January and no
buyer was found at the end
of the allotted 60 days, so the
paper will be moving to an
online-only product.
According to the paper's
Web site, about 20 people
will stay on as the publication
transitions, with hundreds of
other staffers being paid two
weeks per year worked in a
severance package.
The Editorial Board hates
to see a good paper go under.
Ironically enough, this time
last year our current editor
was preparing for an intern-
ship at the P-I.
The reporters, photogra-
phers and online staff at the
P-I were some of the most
talented and driven group of
journalists out there. They are
now left to scramble for jobs in
an ever-narrowing industry.
While we understand that


Hearst had to cut its losses,
giving the paper a paltry 60-
day window to find a buyer
was extremely unfair. At this
point, selling a newspaper
that is already millions of dol-
lars in debt is doomed to fail.
Seattle will surely mourn
the loss of its oldest newspa-
per and oldest business, and
the paper's administration is
trying to remain optimistic
that the online-only P-I will
remain viable.
But the truth of the mat-
ter is the loss of the print
product will be a hard pill to
swallow for Seattleites, who
have enjoyed living in a two-
newspaper town for almost a
century.
The Seattle Times, the
city's conservative-leaning
paper, will now have a mo-
nopoly over the city, and the
hard-hitting journalism fu-
eled by the fierce competition
between the two papers may
diminish.
With two major papers
folding in the first three
months of 2009, we fear for
the future of journalism.

Consumers jump the gun
In response to these depressing days of fiscal failure

Letters to the Editor
Column over-glorifies Stewart
Matthew Christ's column on Monday over-
glorified Jon Stewart as our nation's court
jester who leads a mob in finding the fallacies
in claims made by financial news networks in
today's economic crisis and in ordinary news
networks heading into the Iraq War. I think a
criticism of Stewart is warranted today.
In 2003, a particularly popular president
gave the country a plan that told us that war


was imminent; we'd spend a lot, but it is nec-
essary for us to be safe in the future. In 2009, a
particularly popular president again present-
ed our country with a plan to battle this bad
economy; we'll spend a lot, but it is necessary
for us to be safe in the future. Stewart got it
right in not blindly following the popularity of
President George W. Bush after September 11,
and by asking, "is this really necessary?"
President Barack Obama is being attacked


by some at CNBC who wish not to follow
blindly his master plan to protect us from a
faltering economy, just as Stewart did in 2003.
Yet now this court jester dropped his pitch fork
and jumped on the Obama bandwagon. I liked
Stewart more when he questioned the popular
president in seemingly unnecessary ventures.
Perhaps now we should question him.

Guest column

Funding education remains top concern for Fla. legislators


As many of you know, the
legislature recently met in a
special session to make sig-
nificant cuts to the state's budget for
the current fiscal year. This special
session was called as a direct result
of the economic downturn our na-
tion, our state and our individual
communities have all been experi-
encing. This downturn led to subse-
quent cuts to many programs, and it
will definitely shape the policies we
implement, as well as the final bud-
get we pass during the upcoming
regular session.
It isn't an easy task to maintain a
balanced budget, which is mandat-
ed by our constitution. When state
revenues are dramatically down it
requires either cutting funding to
departments and programs or rais-
ing taxes. Many of my colleagues


and I felt that now was not the time
to further burden Florida's fami-
lies and businesses with additional
taxes.
No single solution will be able to
resolve the deficit we are facing this
spring.
However, by making reduc-
tions in spending and using reserve
funds, we have been able to steer
clear of tax hikes and also were al-
lowed to avoid major reductions to
essential programs.
While we faced a $2.5 billion
shortfall for this fiscal year, next
year's shortfall has the possibility
of reaching $5 billion to $6 billion. I
think this makes our decisions and
our approach this year even more
important. By tightening our collec-
tive belts and reducing spending in
nonessential areas, we will be better


Steve Oelrich prepared for
Speaking Out future short-
falls. Using
tax increases
as a Band-Aid for this year will only
delay the inevitable as we move into
the next fiscal year.
Many citizens have voiced their
concerns about the cuts that have
been made to education. As chair-
man of the Higher Education Com-
mittee and a father of three sons
who attended public schools, the
education of our children is a top
priority. However, with the deficit
we face, no program or department
can be held harmless, and education
is no different.
Considering education takes
up over half of the budget, sparing
education from cuts would unduly
burden the departments that receive


significantly less in appropriations
(Health and Human Services is sec-
ond with just more than 25 percent).
We have worked to cut as little as
possible and maintain funding in
areas that are essential to our youth
who are enrolled in K-12 classes.
Higher education as a whole will
be aided by the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act.
The stimulus bill will provide
additional funding for Pell Grants,
work-study programs and higher
education tax credits. While the total
amount of money allotted for each
program is not fully known, it will
certainly be a help to those that are
looking to further their education
in a time of economic hardship. UF
will also be helped if a bill allowing
tuition increases is successful during
this session.

Grad program tuition may increase, Flavet band shell to be replaced


TRUSTEES, from page 1

Telles-Irvin told Trustees that
dorms are having to compete
with more and more apartment
complexes, some of which lure
students with creative incentives.
"They're offering mopeds,
they're offering laptops, they're
offering, you know, free food,"
she said.
The board could also decide
to raise parking decal prices by
about 10 percent next year. Under
the increase, an annual student
decal would cost $134, up from
$122.
Tuition for first- and second-
year in-state students in the Col-
lege of Medicine's Physician As-
sistant program could also be
hiked 10 to 15 percent to make it
comparable to other schools in the
Southeast.
UF's students currently pay
about $14,000 a year, whereas
those at Barry University, also in
Florida, pay $42,000 a year, ac-

cording to board documents.
The board's committees also
had a slew of discussion items,
which were not up for vote, on
their agendas at the meetings.
Topics included plans to start
offering an online business degree
at Santa Fe College and the demo-
lition of UF's band shell.
Beginning in the fall, Santa Fe
students will be able to enroll in
a program offering bachelor's de-
grees in business administration.
The classes will be online, ex-
cept for tests, and taught by UF
faculty and staff.
The same degree is already of-
fered through UF at other state
colleges, but has not been offered
at Santa Fe because of fears it
would draw local students away
from UF, said Andy McCollough,
senior associate dean of the War-
rington College of Business Ad-
ministration.
Board members were also in-
formed at the meeting that UF's
Flavet Field band shell will be de-
molished next week to make way







C P l


for a new band shell.
Telles-Irvin said the new band
shell should be ready by early July
and will cost about $1 million.
Half the money will come from
the Capital Improvement Trust
Fund, which is supported by stu-
dent tuition fees at state universi-
ties. UF's Activity
State & Service Fee, paid
News by UF students, will
cover the rest.
Former UF Student Body Pres-
ident and Trustee Kevin Reilly,
excited about the new band shell,
jokingly asked if he could swing
the first sledgehammer to help de-
molish the old structure.
"You can go watch," respond-
ed Carol Walker, assistant vice
president of UF's Facilities Plan-
ning & Construction.
Trustees were also briefed
about UF's new student survey,
the Student Experience in the Re-
search University (SERU) survey,
which was e-mailed to UF under-
graduates yesterday.
In an effort to get students to


participate, UF has made comple-
tion of the survey mandatory for
eligibility in the football ticket lot-
tery and is offering the possibility
of $50 coupons at UF's bookstore,
among other prizes, for comple-
tion of the survey.
Trustees also discussed the im-
plications of the state's most re-
cent revenue projections.
On Friday, economists pro-
jected the state's revenues, which
come mainly from sales taxes,
will be short another $2.3 billion
for the next fiscal year, which be-
gins July 1, and $1.1 billion for the
current fiscal year, according to a
presentation by Jane Adams, UF's
vice president of university rela-
tions.
The state's budget deficit for
2009-2010 could be $6 billion or
more, according to projections.
It's not yet clear how these pro-
jections might affect UF's budget.
The state Legislature will use
the estimates to determine the
state's budget by the end of its
session on May 1.


While state revenues are down,
so are donations to UF. After a re-
cord haul of almost $65 million
in December, the UF Foundation
raked in less than $40 million in
January and February.
Trustees were presented with
some good news, however. Over
the last 12 months, UF has saved
almost $1.4 million in printing
costs, including such expenses as
paper, ink and printer repair.
Much of the savings come from
publishing reports exclusively on-
line, said Joe Hice, UF's associate
vice president for Marketing and
Public Relations.
Ed Poppell, UF's vice presi-
dent for Business Affairs, also told
Trustees that UF will seek to use
$10 million originally allocated
for a new chemistry building for
energy efficient modifications at
various campus buildings instead.
The modifications, if approved,
will likely pay for themselves in
two to five years, he said.

UF gets No. 8 seed in NCAA Tournament


* THE TEAM WILL PLAY
TEMPLE IN ITS 1ST GAME.

By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Just imagine the feeling.
UF, 9-22 two seasons ago, is
NCAA Tournament-bound, but
perhaps not without feeling a
little slighted.
The Gators (23-7, 9-5 South-
eastern Conference) gathered
together in Ben Hill Griffin Sta-
dium on Monday night and
watched as they received a No.
8 seed for the Big Dance.
UF will face No. 9-seed
Temple (21-9, 11-3 Atlantic 10
Conference) in Storrs, Conn., on
Sunday.
The part that wasn't so re-
freshing for the Gators is a po-
tential second-round matchup
with No. 1 overall seed Connect-
icut (33-0) on the Huskies' home
court. That's unless No. 16-seed
Vermont, a team UF faced ear-
lier this season, pulls off the un-
thinkable.
"Do I think we're better than
an eight seed? Absolutely, I
think we're better than an eight
seed," UF coach Amanda Butler
said. "But for us to be able to say
that, we need to back it up."
Junior guard Steffi Sorensen
felt the same way about the


Gators' path.
"We were kind of hoping for
a better seed, but certainly you
can't go in there down about it,"
Sorensen said. "We've just got to


go in there and play our game
and kind of play with a chip on
our shoulder."
Still, the feeling for UF was
reassuring knowing what it has


accomplished so quickly, going
from no postseason two years
ago to the Women's National
Invitation Tournament last year

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

There's nothing like a rivalry game to
wake up a reeling team.
UF (9-7, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) will
host FSU (9-6) at 6:30 in McKethan Stadium
tonight fresh off of suffering a three-game
sweep at the hands of Arkansas over the
weekend.
The Gators committed eight errors over
the three losses and continued to get no help
at all from the bullpen.
The Razorbacks were the Gators' first
competition from the SEC, but the Seminoles
might present the toughest challenge so far.
FSU posted a 54-14 record a year ago that
culminated in a College World Series berth.
Though there was a lot of turnover from


that squad, such as the loss of 2008 Collegiate
Baseball Player of the Year and No. 5 overall
MLB Draft pick Buster Posey, the Seminoles
lineup is just as formidable.
FSU sophomore Tyler
Holt comes into today's
game hitting .475, and the
dynamic leadoff man leads
the team in stolen bases
(five) and doubles (10).
Third baseman Stuart
Tapley, also a sophomore,
Panteliodis has provided the most
power for FSU. He comes
in hitting .333 with a team-high four home
runs and 15 RBIs.
The Seminoles' Achilles heel has been their
pitching staff.
Every starter in the rotation has already
suffered a loss, and their team ERA is a ro-


bust 5.40.
By comparison, UF's staff boasts a 3.89
ERA, although pitching hasn't exactly been a
bright spot for the Gators.
Freshman Alex Panteliodis (2-2, 6.50 ERA)
will take the hill for the Gators tonight after
struggling in his last outing against Arkansas
on Saturday. Panteliodis lasted just 1 1/3 in-
nings after allowing five hits and giving up
5 runs.
Freshman Brian Busch (0-1, 3.06) will get
the start for FSU.
FSU leads the all-time series with UF 115-
93-1, and the Seminoles took two of three
from the Gators a year ago.
UF did, however, defend its home field and
came away with a 6-1 victory in Gainesville
before dropping the other two games in Jack-
sonville and Tallahassee by a combined score
of 14-4.

'madness'

Every year, there's one
week I look forward to
above everything else
- the selection and first two
rounds of the NCAA Men's
Basketball Tournament.
From Selection Sunday to
the finalizing of the Sweet 16,
I'm in heaven.
I always print out way too
many brackets and start us-
ing different methods gut
feelings, stats, coaches, mas-
cots, cool names to get an
idea of how I should fill it in
(Chief Kickingstallionsims'
name
alone is
definitely
enough
for me
to pick
Mike McCall Alabama
McCall-in' It State in
Like I See It the play-
mmccall@alligator.org in game).
That
keeps me busy enough that
Thursday and Friday roll
around in no time and
these are the best two days of
the year.
With 32 games in two days,
the first round is unbeatable
entertainment. You can plant
yourself on the couch and
marvel at the steady stream
of upsets and buzzer beaters
pouring out of your televi-
sion.
Forget school. And show-
ering.
And March Madness
means the greatest sports-
caster of all time is back in the
spotlight: Gus Johnson. If you
don't know who I'm talking
about, I feel sorry for you.
This is the most exciting
time to be a sports fan, and

Large lineman prospect Orr orally commits to Gators


* THE NEW PORT RICHEY GULF HIGH JUNIOR IS
UF'S 2ND LINEMAN RECRUIT IN THE 2010 CLASS.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

The latest addition to the Gators' 2010 recruiting class is a
big one.
New Port Richey Gulf High's Leon Orr all 6-foot-6, 300
pounds of him announced his intent to sign with UF on
Sunday while at the Badger Sports/New Level Athletics Pass
Camp in Las Vegas.
Orr is the Gators' eighth oral commitment and second line-
man prospect for the 2010 class. UF's other lineman commit,
257-pound Ian Silberman, is significantly smaller than Orr.
But if Orr has his way, size will be only one of his advan-
tages.
Despite his girth, Orr is noticeably quick. He starts at defen-
sive tackle and tight end for Gulf, earning all-county honors
at both positions. He even played fullback as a sophomore.


UF not looking ahead to UConn


TOURN EY, from page 14

and now the NCAA Tournament.
"To have a chance to sit here this
year and watch a selection show not
wondering or hoping whether we're
in, but knowing that we're in and be-
ing concerned about who we're play-
ing and where we're going to be sent, I
think it speaks a lot to how far this pro-
gram has come in a very short amount
of time," Butler said.
The Gators' opening game will be
against a team they beat last year on
the road by 14 points. Butler missed
the meeting because of her grand-
mother's death.
Butler, a former A-10 coach at Char-
lotte, said she watched her old team
beat the Owls in this year's conference
tournament semifinals on March 8. She
noted that she'll have some familiarity
facing an old conference foe.
UF was one of seven SEC teams
selected for the tournament, tying the
Big East Conference for most teams
selected.
Butler said that stat was a testament
to the grind her team faced all year that
has allowed it to get to this point.
"There's no one in our league that


"(Opponents) see me, they're like, 'He's big, he ain't going
to be able to move,'" Orr said. "But then when I do it, they be
so surprised that it catches them off guard."
"After the Friday Night Lights, that's when I
opened a lot of eyes."
Leon Orr
New Port Richey Gulf High lineman

Orr probably surprised a lot of people when he showed up
at a 7-on-7 camp this weekend.
Drills there pit an offense consisting of a quarterback, a
center and five eligible receivers against a pass defense -
linebackers and defensive backs. The center usually volun-
teers to snap, not be a full-time lineman, so 300-plus pounders
are a rare sight.
Despite his size, Orr had no intentions of snapping during
the drills. He wanted to hone his ball skills in preparation for
next season, when he hopes to be Gulf's best receiving op-

the fullest by fans whose teams aren't part
of it.
But there's something about the tour-
nament that makes me sad. As most things
do, March Madness got me thinking about
college football.
NCAA hoops is my third or fourth fa-
vorite sport behind NCAA football, the
NFL and sometimes MLB, but for me,
its finale easily tops everything else in
sports.
So when I think about how awesome
the next few bracket-busting weeks will
be, I can't help but imagine what a college
football playoff would be like.
When the tournament starts, there's no
fear in the back of my mind that I'll feel
cheated when it's over. The game is de-
cided on the court, where the contenders
can battle each other head-to-head, and
I'll always feel 100 percent comfortable
referring to the tournament's winner as
the national champion.
Those characteristics are usually not a
part of the college football season, where
two teams are selected by computer pro-
grams from a super-exclusive club of


is surprised by that," Butler said. "It
was such a unique year because there
was a lot of talk about the SEC being
down. And everyone in our league,
we're all looking at each other as we're
battling every Thursday and Sunday
going, 'There is not a thing that's weak
about anybody in this league.' It's the
best league in the country.
"A lot of people feel like the Big East
is the best league," Butler added, "but
that's because the Big
S East has UConn."
Speaking of the
Huskies, Butler has
Women's no interest in looking
Basketball ahead.
"All I'm worried
about is Temple,"
Butler said.
UF guard Sha Brooks, back in the
tournament for the first time since her
freshman year, isn't worried about
what could possibly be looming in the
second round either.
"I don't think it's a distraction,"
Brooks said. "I think it's actually a mo-
tivation for us to see actually where
we are. This is the end of the road, so if
you don't get this win against Temple
then you don't really have to worry
about UConn."


The camp featured other members of UF's 2010 recruit-
ing class, most notably quarterback Trey Burton and safety
Jonathan Dowling. Orr said he talked to Burton whom
he met at the UF-Tennessee basketball game on March 1 in
Gainesville a lot during the weekend and traded texts with
Dowling.
The light-on-his-feet Orr memorizes passing routes and
runs with players half his size. The big-as-an-ox Orr is known
to lift up and slam opponents like a heavyweight wrestler.
Orr has been on UF's radar since last summer, when he
attended the team's Friday Night Lights camp.
"Before then, no one really knew about me," Orr said. "Af-
ter the Friday Night Lights (camp), that's when I opened a lot
of eyes."
The camp gave Orr a chance to show how well he could
move his big body, and the coaches offered him a scholarship
on the spot.
Orr will attend the Urban Meyer Elite Lineman Camp this
June.

schools to face off for the title while every-
one else plays in highly publicized, totally
meaningless bowl games.
In my mind, this is the most basic rea-
son that college football needs a play-
off. Sports are supposed to provide two
things: entertainment and a champion. A
playoff would satisfy both categories to a
much greater degree than the current sys-
tem does.
Obviously, working out the details
(number of teams, conference privileges,
money, locations) will be difficult, but the
notion that a playoff is necessary should
be universally accepted.
Besides, when I was driving back to
Gainesville on Sunday, I watched as a
space shuttle tore across the sky, and if
we can do that, we can figure out a way
for some football teams to take part in a
playoff.
Now, when this college football play-
off comes into being, as it inevitably will,
March Madness will have some serious
competition for the title of best postseason
tournament.
But until then, I'll take Gus Johnson or
a Western Kentucky-Illinois matchup over
a college football bowl game any day.
