Colleges reveal cuts


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

The colleges of Nursing and Business Ad-
ministration released their 10-percent budget-
cut proposals on Wednesday.
The nursing college's proposal includes no
layoffs, while the business college's propos-
al includes five one faculty member who
would not be eligible for tenure and four staff
members.
The nursing college will not cut its under-
graduate program, but it might reduce un-
dergraduate enrollment over time because of
possible cuts to temporary faculty, said college
spokeswoman Tracy Wright.
Under its proposal, the college would cut
$813,000, mainly by eliminating eight positions
that will be vacant. Seven of those are profes-


sorships and one is a staff position in the alum-
ni office. Also, a vacant, full-time librarian posi-
tion will become a half-time position.
These changes will save about $609,000.
The college would also cut funding for tem-
porary faculty and student assistants by about
$119,000, Wright said. Five temporary faculty
positions and an unknown number of student
assistants could be eliminated.
The college would also stop paying its por-
tion of funds to the Interdisciplinary Fam-
ily Health program, a program for beginning
health science students, which would save
$25,000.
The remainder, $61,000, would be saved by
eliminating the reimbursements clinical faculty
receive for work-related cell phone use and by
reducing travel for faculty, administrators and

Board discusses impact


* MEETINGS WILL CONCLUDE TODAY.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

The Board of Governors will conclude its
two-day set of meetings in Tallahassee today
after discussing on Wednesday the impact
Florida's 11 public universities have on the
state's economy.
Yesterday's two-hour long morning meet-
ing was comprised of six presentations high-
lighting the role of the universities' research
and faculty in the state's economy.
"Each institution has a large economic im-
pact on its community," wrote Bill Edmonds,
the board's spokesman, in an e-mail.
Edmonds said a key point of the presenta-
tions marked Florida's public university sys-
tem as the gateway to Florida's future, which
he said relies on furthering a knowledge econ-


omy.
This means having innovative research
ideas that can be brought to the marketplace,
Edmonds said later in a phone interview.
"The key, underlying message is this: Our
faculty brings in
UF more than $1 billion
Administration (a year) in federal
and private research
awards," Edmonds wrote, adding commer-
cialization of finished research efforts will
benefit the economy.
He estimated the amount of grant money
UF receives a year is close to half of that $1
billion.
A presentation given during the meet-
ing by David Day, director of UF's Office of
Technology Licensing, showed UF leads the
state in technology transfer, which deals with
commercializing the ideas and developments
made in research labs, according to Edmonds.

Officials find 2.5 pounds of pot on highschoolers
Officials found a gun and 2.5 pounds of marijuana
in the backpacks of three Eastside High School stu-
dents Tuesday.
The school's administration got a tip that there
would be a drug deal on campus and asked school
resource deputies to help track down Fabian Hatch-
er, 16, Alphonso Wells Jr., 16 and Edward Warren,
17, Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman Art
Forgey said.
Officials found marijuana in all three of their back-
packs, adding up to about 2.5 pounds, Forgey said.


Forgey said it is rare to find that much marijuana
on anyone, let alone three teenagers at a high school.
Small plastic bags that Forgey said are typically
used to package and sell marijuana were also found.
While searching Warren's backpack, officials
found an unloaded .22-caliber handgun, Forgey said.
All three were arrested and charged with pos-
session of marijuana with intent to distribute within
1,000 feet of a school.
Warren was also charged with possession of a
firearm on school property.

UF to buy road near hospital
A portion of Archer Road will

October if everything pans out.
UF plans to take ownership
of the section of Archer Road be-
tween 13th Street and Southwest
16th Avenue, an area surrounding
Shands at UF, the Malcom Randall
VA Medical Center and UF's Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine.
This area, to be renamed Health
Care Park, will have added bike
lanes, sidewalks and landscaping
to make it more pedestrian friend-

vice president of business affairs.
In addition, the speed limit will
be reduced from 35 mph to 20 to
match the rate on campus.
The bend in the road at the in-
tersection between Archer Road
and 13th Street will be removed
and made into a perpendicular in-
tersection, Poppell said.
Road signs will also be added
to help direct patients and visitors,
and an entrance, such as an awning
over the road, will be installed to
welcome visitors.

Editor fired, awards taken


By JACQUELYN WEINER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Amid accusations of plagiarism, the
North Central Florida Society of Profession-
al Journalists Professional Chapter decided
Wednesday to rescind awards given to the
former editor of Ocala Magazine.
The editor, Heather Lee, was fired Sun-
day after allegations of widespread plagia-
rism, the Ocala Star-Banner reported.
"This was a person I put a great deal
of responsibility and trust in," said Linda
Marks, publisher of the magazine, accord-
ing to the Star-Banner.
Marks could not be reached for com-
ment.
Ten awards given to Ocala Magazine
in 2007 and 2008 were revoked, said Ana-
Klara Anderson, president of the North
Central Florida Society of Professional Jour-
nalists. The local chapter of the Society of
Professional Journalists met in Gainesville
to discuss whether Lee should be allowed
to keep her awards.
These constitute "any award involving
writing that was submitted by Ocala Maga-
zine with Heather Lee's byline or in which
Heather Lee played a significant editorial
role," Anderson said.
"We run this awards program to award
honest, fair, accurate journalism," Ander-
son said. "We really, as a chapter, had no
other option than to rescind these awards
because we found consistent and extensive
use of plagiarism over the course of several
years."
The story of Lee's four years of plagia-
rism surfaced last week when two enve-
lopes, each containing twenty examples of
Lee's plagiarism, were sent anonymously to
the Star-Banner and WCJB TV-20.
These articles contained material pla-


giarized from many media outlets, includ-
ing The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment
Weekly and O, The Oprah Magazine, the
Star-Banner reported.
In one example from Ocala Magazine in
September 2006, Lee wrote that "meat lust
is not pretty and I suspect it grips all true
carnivores," TV-20 reported.
Her words were almost identical to a
June 2006 article written by Robb Walsh of
The Houston Press, according to the TV-20
investigation.
"Meat lust is not pretty," Walsh wrote.
"But I suspect it grips all true carnivores."
"This was a person I put a great
deal of responsibility and trust
in."
Linda Marks
Publisher of Ocala Magazine

In some cases, articles contained four
cases of plagiarism, said Norman P. Lewis,
an assistant professor of journalism at UF.
"It's pretty unusual to have multiple
sources for a plagiarism piece," said Lewis,
whose research specialty is plagiarism.
Of the 85 to 100 examples of plagiarism
he has studied closely, Lee's are some of the
worst, Lewis said.
"It's certainly one of the more serious
cases I've ever encountered," Lewis said.
To prevent future dishonesty, Marks
told the Star-Banner that she had installed
"Check for Plagiarism" software.
The important thing is that Ocala Maga-
zine works to regain its readers' trust, Lewis
said.
In its next issue, the magazine should
discuss and correct all of Lee's plagiarism.
It should also amend the online archive, he
said.

VegFest offers free food


By JESSICA OSORIO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Animal Activists of Alachua is hosting
its eighth annual VegFest from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. on the Plaza of the Americas.
Tommasina Miller, a UF English senior
and the club's president, said the festival
will provide enough free vegan-friendly
food for up to 1,000 people, her goal for
the festival's attendance.
"We want to reach out to people who
have never tried vegetarian or vegan
foods and educate them about the cruelty
animals in factory farms undergo," Miller
said.
The festival will also feature Robert


Cheeke, an award-winning vegan body
builder, who will speak about body build-
ing and where vegetarians and vegans get
their protein.
Miller said there will be "empathy sta-
tions," which are areas designed to help
people envision the lives of
On animals in factory farms.
Campus For the first time, the
group will host a donation
drive for Rooterville, a local
pig sanctuary, and Jungle Friends, a local
primate sanctuary. Miller said there will
be prizes for those who donate the most
produce, money or time, and 100 gift
cards to local restaurants will be handed
out randomly.

Restaurant's closing not


due to lack of business


The 43rd Street Deli added its 13th
Street location to a growing list of busi-
nesses closing in Gainesville, but the res-
taurant isn't suffering the same plight as
those buckling under financial strain.
Richard Ross, former general man-
ager of the 13th Street location and cur-
rent manager of the original deli on 43rd
Street, said the chain's owner sold the
building to CVS because it was in disre-
pair and was losing money from mainte-
nance-not lack of business.
"(CVS) just offered a decent amount
for the location," he said.
According to Ross, three-quarters of
the employees from the closed restau-
rant transferred to the 43rd Street or
Williston Road locations. The owner is
looking for a spot to build a third loca-


tion. Ross said the restaurant is able to
stay open because of the loyalty of its
regular customers.
"We have to tighten up a little
bit, but we can pay the bills."
Richard Ross
Deli manager

The remaining restaurants will incor-
porate the old location's vegetarian and
vegan dishes to accommodate the 13th
Street Deli's customers.
"We have to tighten up a little bit,
but we can pay the bills," he said. "As
long as you can pay the bills right now,
you're doing well."

Business proposes 5 layoffs, none for nursing

staff.
Wright said the college's 2007-2008 state-funded budget
was about $12.9 million. The college received a cut of about
$500,000 this year, according to Alligator archives.
The business college's $2.3 million proposal includes five
potential layoffs.
The layoffs would be in the Bureau of Economic & Busi-
ness Research, which would be cut by about $407,000.
Only about $2.1 million of the total cut has been specified,
however, said Andy McCollough, senior associate dean of the
college.
The bulk of the money, about $1.4 million, in the specified


portion of the proposal will be recouped by replacing state
funds with other money, including donations to the college
through the UF Foundation and funds from programs that
generate their own revenue, like online degree programs.
About $255,000 will be saved by
U F reclaiming unused benefits after re-
Administration tirements and resignations and by
spending less on technology, which
could mean fewer equipment replace-
ments and less technical support, UF spokeswoman Janine
Sikes said.
All colleges and administrative units were asked to submit
10-percent budget cut proposals, which are due by April 1, in
anticipation of a possible university-wide budget cut of $72
million to $75 million in 2009-2010.

Editorial

Job Jubilee

New call center will offer

opportunity to locals
While economic uncertainty runs rampant in north
Central Florida, one major corporation's consolida-
tion of offices will soon heat up an otherwise stag-
nant Gainesville job market.
In an announcement made on Wednesday, Enterprise
Rent-A-Car revealed plans to open up a regional call center in
June at the site of an old Winn-Dixie bringing 200 new jobs to
the area. What makes the revelation even more compelling is
the fact that the positions will offer living wages along with a
wide array of benefits. If hired, new employees stand to make
between $11 to $18 an hour while also receiving medical,
401(k) and profit-sharing a far cry from the "fringe benefits"
of working at Checker's.
Hell, who wants to eat their greasy offerings sober any-
way?
The Editorial Board is pleased that job growth has found
its way to Gainesville, especially during a time in which hous-
ing foreclosures are on the rise and credit remains nonexistent.
While 200 new positions will make but a small dent in a more
widespread issue, we can only hope Enterprise's move will
spur increased growth in the region. Even though the news of
career opportunities for the under- and unemployed brings us
great joy, we can't help but think what could've been.
Our inner foodie shed a tear when we learned news that
talks were in place for a Whole Foods Market to move into the
location soon to be occupied by Enterprise.
Just a hunch, but we doubt the rental car company will be
selling miso-glazed catfish with baby bok choy.
Somewhere, the owners of The Fresh Market are having
the last laugh.


Amazin' Fruit


A growing phenomenon
sweeping the nation
promises to trick your
taste buds into thinking sour
treats have magically turned
sweet all with one little
"miracle fruit."
Scientifically known as
"Synsepalum dulcificum,"
the miraculous wonder takes
effect by first chewing the
fruit and then rubbing the
pulp against the tongue.
For up to a half hour, your
taste buds become altered, in-
spiring foodies everywhere to
host soirees in which guests
gorge on all things sour -
completely convinced that
they are sweet.
These aren't your daddy's
tripping parties.
While the fruit may be in-
digenous to West Africa, one
of the leading researchers on
the subject calls the University
of Florida's Center for Taste
and Smell home. According
to an article on CNN.com, Dr.
Linda Bartoshuk has studied


miracle fruit since the '70s
while working in U.S. mili-
tary labs.
When the Editorial Board
first heard word about mir-
acle fruit, we all collectively
agreed that we had to get our
hands on this too-good-to-be-
true nectar of the gods.
Just think, we could stuff
our faces with lemons and
limes to our hearts' content
while tricking our taste buds
into believing we downed
more sugar than Fat Albert
coming off a 48-hour juice
fast let loose in Willy Wonka's
Chocolate Factory. Sadly, Bar-
toshuk advises to take caution
when using miracle fruit as a
way to lose weight, claiming
that artificial sweeteners fail
to actually help people drop
pounds.
While we'll stick to our
gallon jugs of water and PB&J
diet, don't think we didn't al-
ready place an order to dance
with the devil known as mir-
acle fruit.

I 'In


Column

UF needs to fix sch
eople have spent the past few days filling this paper
with complaints about the budget cuts. Admittedly,
the cuts are controversial and probably imperfect,
but you have to make sacrifices when there's no money
available. For those of us who are already here, there's not
much to do other than accept it.
The university has another problem, though. With dis-
emboweled departments, pitiful course offerings and ris-
ing tuition, how does it attract high-quality students?
The answer merit-based scholarships has become a
four-letter word among social-justice-craving academics.
Need-based aid has a solid place at all universities and
helps students, who may not otherwise be able to attend,
get the education they deserve. Unfortunately, it usually
does nothing to attract the most qualified students the
students who often go on to become scholarship winners,
public leaders and wealthy alumni donors who bring
prestige to the university. Even those highly qualified
students who are eligible for ample need-based aid may
receive better merit-based offers elsewhere.
UF got by for a long time by offering those quality stu-
dents the best education in the state at minimal cost. But
as the quality of education goes down and cost goes up
in the wake of budget cuts, UF must expand merit-based
aid.
UF's current merit aid programs include the National
Merit Scholarship a relatively insignificant $1,000 per
year to students who performed well on the PSAT the
John V. Lombardi Scholarship and Davis United World
College Scholars Program, both incredibly selective pro-
grams that can only give generous scholarships to eight
individuals a year.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Florida Oppor-


olarship practices
S tunity Scholarship Program does
a better job of meeting students'
needs. This is awarded to nearly
300 students every year. While
it has produced some of the fin-
est leaders on campus, it has also
Johnathan Lott produced its fair share of students
letters@alligator org who, unfortunately, weren't ready
for college.
The Opportunity Scholarship
gives many students a chance in college, but the lack of
any notable academic qualifications means that some of
the $3.6 million in the program will inevitably be lost on
students who can't handle UF.
I propose that UF adopts a program to single out its
most holistically qualified freshmen applicants and offer
them merit scholarship along with their admission, re-
gardless of their family income. This will encourage the
best applicants to come here rather than similar schools
who might give them more incentives. They can fund it
by eliminating national merit scholarships (which is based
on one silly test) and by partially scaling back need-based
programs or adding merit elements to the program that
will help ensure that the money is well spent.
It's wildly popular in academia to "fight the good fight"
for the oppressed and offer them need-based scholarships,
but when education quality is declining and costs are ris-
ing, UF needs to remember its reputation as an institution.
It needs to attract the best and brightest regardless of how
poor or rich they are, and the easiest and most cost effec-
tive way to do this is through merit scholarships.
Johnathan Lott is a political science and economics sopho-
more. His column appears on Thursdays.

Guest column

Religion program at UF strong, does not deserve to be cut


The budget cut proposal presented by
CLAS last week targeted the Depart-
ment of Religion as one of the pro-
grams set for a substantial cut, threatening
its future as a viable program. Founded in
1946, the Department of Religion at UF is an
undeniably strong program dedicated and
essential to the ideals of a liberal arts educa-
tion.
The academic study of religion is often
misconceived as religious teaching that has
no place in public education hardly the
case. To cut the department that allows us
to explore and discuss religion as a deep
and permeating part of human discourse is


to cripple our understanding of the various
ways people understand their relationship
with the world. It is undeniable that religion
shapes and informs political discourse, mili-
tary conflict, environmental practices, inno-
vations in the sciences, the arts basically
every facet of human life.
Our distinguished faculty engage their
students in stimulating and rich discussions
concerning issues of diversity, encounter
conflict, globalization, ecology, etc. Faculty
and students are connected with a variety
of interdisciplinary programs, including the
School of Natural Resources and Environ-
ment, Latin American Studies, Jewish Stud-


Budget Cuts ies, African Stud-
Speaking Out ies, the Centers for
Women Studies and
Gender Research,
Spirituality and Health, the School of Music
and the Harn Museum of Art. These connec-
tions are reflective of not only the depart-
ment's commitment to the goals of higher
education, but also its commitment to de-
velop in individuals the skills necessary to
critically assess the significant and pervasive
role of religion in global society.
As scholars of religion, we understand
the importance of a holistic approach in
higher education, an ideal that CLAS seeks


to uphold and celebrate. CLAS' mission
statement is "to lead the academic quest to
understand our place in the universe, and to
help shape our society and environment."
Are we able to uphold this mission while si-
multaneously allowing for strong programs
and departments that exemplify these ideals
to be reduced substantially and irrevers-
ibly?
We need to reconsider what exactly our
education means to us and what our diplo-
mas from UF will come to represent.
This column was written by The Society of
Academic Religious Studies. They are a group of
undergraduates in the Department of Religion.

Presets to perform

MARY MANCHESS + AVENUE WRITER
It has been a crazy couple of years for the dynamic duo
The Presets.
This past year alone, they have exploded onto Aus-
tralia's pop scene winning six ARIA awards, which are
equivalent to the Grammys. On top of that, their sopho-
more album, "Apocalypso," went triple platinum in Aus-
tralia.
The Presets will perform at Common Grounds along
with The Golden Filter on Sunday. Tickets are $12 in ad-
vance and $14 the day of the show. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Julian Hamilton, a half of the electronic-funk pair, said
he knows it won't be a boring night in a college town.
"We want to just stamp out our authority on the situa-
tion," Hamilton said. "Take control of the room and indoc-
trinate the people with our music."
While their MySpace page describes their sound as a
mix of industrial, psychedelic and techno, Hamilton said
he thinks it's atypical for musicians to describe them-
selves.
"I found it easier if we leave it to you guys to describe
it for us," he said.
Aside from their funky sound, The Presets are also
known for their live performances, especially when it
comes to their audience interaction.
"We jump around on stage, I guess, but really it's the
audience that should be dancing," Hamilton said. "Lots of
the dancing should be going on in the crowd, and if it isn't,
then that definitely is a problem."
If there is one thing they are looking forward to in
America, it's the food. Hamilton said they really enjoy the
local restaurants in each city. They especially love Tex-
Mex.
After the tour in America wraps up, the duo will head
back to Australia to finish touring on the "Apocalypso"
album. They hope to head back in the studio in July or
August.

Indie duo tours with new album

MARY MANCHESS + AVENUE WRITER
Matt Johnson is hoping the walls will get
ripped down at Common Grounds on Tuesday.
"Essentially, I just hope to have a crazy dance
party," the 26-year-old keyboardist and vocalist
of Matt and Kim said. "That's all I want. That's all
I want in life."
Doors will open at 9 p.m., and tickets are $10.
If there is one thing Johnson is proud of, it is
the Brooklyn-based duo's reputation to have a
crowd that likes to get physical.
"You go to a show, and people just like stare
at their feet," Johnson said. "To be on stage and
to have people dancing gets me and Kim much
more excited. We definitely don't put on the too-
cool-for-school, cheesy look."
And aside from the dance party, Johnson said
that fans can expect a show that is a little more
high-tech.
"We are really bringing up our 2009 game," he
said. "We have a little more multimedia aspect."
Johnson said Matt and Kim are purposely re-
turning to Common Grounds.
"It's a great venue, and we have some friends
that work there," he said. "We are honored to be
back. The shows we've done in Gainesville have
just been fun, straight-up."
This show will also feature the bands new al-
bum "The Grand," which was recorded in John-
son's childhood bedroom that was still covered
with skateboarding posters and show fliers.
"The Grand" has been described to take Matt
and Kim's songs and lyrics to the next level.
"As bizarre as it sounds, we kind of let the song
write itself lyrically with a broad horizon that can
mean different things to people," he said.
What may even be more bizarre, is Matt and
Kim balance a work and personal relationship to-
gether. They have been dating since fall of 2002
and started working together in 2004.
"We spend so much time together, we should Photo courtesy of Tod Seelie
hate each other by now, but we get along pretty Matt and Kim will perform at Common Grounds on Tuesday.

Mellow Mushroom
We're not sure what is more
unique about the Mellow
Mushroom--the prices
themselves or the value that
you get for such reasonable
prices. You can eat there on a
student budget, but the quality
of ingredients and the love
that go into every item is good
enough to share with your
mom. Or boyfriend. There are
plenty of salads and you can
build your own or enjoy locally
produced tempeh, avocado,
and teriyaki on the one hand,
or a loaded pie like the mighty
meaty or the 10-ingredient
house special. You might
say there's something there
for every one of your four
boyfriends. Just make sure
everyone knows it's your
restaurant before you take
them. Lunch & Dinner 7 Days,
Outside Seating, Unique Beers.
Call for specific hours and
delivery information.

tS uIj on the
fHk I H Hu


STEPHANIE GRANADA + AVENUE WRITER

The stereotype is that boys roll out of bed and into their days, giving little thought to what they wear.
But stylish guys show this isn't true, and why should it be? Style is asexual, and regardless of gender or sexual
orientation, everyone reaps the benefits of a well-coordinated, gasp-inspiring look. Stand out among the masses
by taking a cue from these dapper chaps.


Preppy Chic
This spring the trend is all about clean lines, neutral colors
and structured looks.
Clarence Anthony Jr., 20, sociology student
Wearing: Lacoste boat shoes, cream Dockers and a vintage
button-down passed down from his dad.
Style Icon: LeBron James, he's able to wear high fashion
even at a game. I just saw him at an All-Star game wearing a
Burberry trench coat.
Why fashion is relevant for men: In college, it is our job to
present ourselves like young men, not only for all the women
on campus, but also for ourselves.


The New Bohemian
The boho look still has the same relaxed, hippy vibe, minus the
Birkenstocks and dreadlocks.
John Welch, 18, English student
Wearing: Urban Outfitters stone-washed jeans and scarf and
Vans slip-on skate shoes.
Style influence: My dad was kind of a hippie and exposed to a
lot of folky stuff. If I could, I would go in a time machine and buy
everything from the '60s. I associate with that aesthetic more.
Fashion must: I'm OCD about fit. I look silly if I wear baggy
jeans.


Hipster mod
This style is all about mixing modern slim-cut threads with
roughed-up vintage pieces.
Barry Bernard, 24, American Apparel
associate
Wearing: Cheap Monday skinny jeans, vintage penny
loafers and plaid button-down.
Style icon: The Rat Pack, everything they wore was
perfectly tailored and cool.
Fashion advice: Guys think it's too feminine to be into
looks, but I think everybody should try to look their best.
Find the best pieces to compliment your shape and mood.

UF FOOTBALL

Mature defending champs fending off complacency

By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

Two years ago, when linebacker Brandon Siler and safety
Reggie Nelson decided to leave early for the NFL, UF coach
Urban Meyer remembers seeing "red flags."
Those were the first signs that an immature and border-
line-selfish team was going to run into Ben Hill Griffin Stadi- I
um later that fall. And, unfortunately for the Gators, Meyer
and his coaching staff were right.
Now, the team finds itself in the same situation: UF is
coming off a national championship. The Gators don't see
Percy Harvin, Cornelius Ingram, Phil Trautwein or Louis
Murphy on the offensive depth chart anymore. And there's
that scary thought of complacency.
Except now, Meyer isn't seeing red flags. He's seeing
sweat. And lots of it.
It's sweat that is showing the Gators, in the coaches' and
players' opinions, aren't in danger of having another let-
down season like they did two years ago.
"In '07 you had a bunch of young, immature football
players that were not ready to play. But that's not the case
here," Meyer said. "We're a good program now. We weren't .. .
then. We were a good team."
It also helps when you have a Heisman-winning quar-
terback and All-Southeastern Conference linebacker coming
back. While losing Harvin to the NFL early hurts, it wasn't
as bad as it could have been. So when Tim Tebow and Bran-
don Spikes came back for their senior years, it became official
that it wouldn't be hard for the Gators to find their leaders
for 2009.
"Basically the whole team's back," junior linebacker Ryan
Stamper said. "That's what's going to be the difference this Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff

QB takes snaps under center


* TIM TEBOW IS TRYING OUT A PRO-
STYLE OFFENSE IN PRACTICE.

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

Tim Tebow found himself in an unfamil-
iar position when the Gators opened practice
Wednesday. The Heisman Trophy-winning
quarterback took snaps from under center dur-
ing the team's first workout of the spring.
"I think we're going to work on some under-
center packages and implement a little bit of
that into our game plan," Tebow said.
Because Tebow takes nearly all of his snaps
from the shotgun formation in UF's spread of-
fense, NFL scouts have questioned his ability to
adjust to a traditional pro-style formation.
New quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler is do-
ing his best to change that.
"I keep hearing that the NFL is so much dif-
ferent than college, so we're trying to help him
get more comfortable," Urban Meyer said.
Loeffler, a longtime assistant at Michigan, is


credited with the development of NFL quarter-
backs Chad Henne, Tom Brady and Brian Gri-
ese. Meyer said he also plans to incorporate a
no-huddle offense this spring.
SPIKES ON STAYING: For the first time since
he made the decision, Brandon Spikes talked
publicly about his choice to forgo the NFL
draft and come back to UF for
his senior season.
"(I was) a kid, 21 years old,
and had a chance to make it to
Football the big leagues and didn't take
it. You think about getting hurt
or what else you could accom-
plish," Spikes said. "But I felt like coming back
to school would benefit me more."
THE PROM ISE: Meyer said it was his decision to
put up a plaque on the wall of the team's new
football complex with the text from Tebow's
speech after UF's loss to Mississippi last sea-
son. Meyer said he didn't think there was any
reason to wait until the junior had graduated.
"We're not interested in 10 years from now,"
Meyer said. "It was a speech that I think every-
one in Gator Nation deserves a chance to see."

diving team is heading to the NCAA
Championships starting Thursday.

Young UF impresses in Utah


EVAN, from page 18

As entertaining as it has been to follow the explosive
feud between Urban Meyer and Lane Kiffin, debate the
insanity of the Tim Tebow "Promise" being etched into a
plaque outside the football stadium and track the blazing
speed of UF athletes at NFL Pro Scout Day, it's great to
finally see football players, well, play football.
Sure, the pads are barely on, new players are getting
adjusted and there's never any contact on the quarter-
back, but at least fans and the media get to see what this
football team is shaping out to be.
What excitement did the first day of spring practice
hold?
Well, there were the punt-blocking drills where an
overzealous Desmond Parks a freshman tight end
whose name you'll know soon enough ran straight
into the coach holding the ball.
The offense and defense faced off in some seven-on-
seven drills as usual, and everyone's heart rate raised
when Brandon Spikes went in for a tackle or Tebow
threw a deep pass.
There was an ESPN presence on the practice field -
the Worldwide Leader had a video camera and a giant
boom microphone and about three times as many
cameras and notepads as there were during the season.
The scene Wednesday was one of resounding joy from
the fans. They congregated inside the practice field gates
and piled up outside practice afterward to get players -
especially Tebow to sign whatever they brought with
them.
When I emerged from the throng of reporters after-
ward and had to part the sea of fans outside the gate, I
felt like an athlete running through a line of teammates
during player introductions.
That's what spring practice is all about. It's a time of
hope for the fans and a time of new beginnings for the
players. It's a time when March starts to feel like Au-
gust, and all you can dream of is that first kickoff against
Charleston Southern.
For now, we'll be stuck with the spring game on April
18, the culmination of all the hubbub we witnessed to-
day.
Wednesday was the beginning of what could easily be
another championship year for the Gators, another year
that goes down in the record books and a year that ce-
ments Tim Tebow's legacy as the greatest college football
player of all time.
I'm excited to see what happens. It's just a shame I
won't be here in the fall to see how it all works out.


m THE TEAM FINISHED A SEASON-BEST THIRD
IN THE BYU DIXIE CLASSIC.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

In 2008, the Gators had national-championship aspi-
rations while winning the Southeastern Conference, but
after the season, the team, which was full of seniors, was
dismantled.
In stepped the freshmen, and up the ranks went the
sophomores.
It was supposed to take time for the No. 26 UF wom-
en's golf team to return to national prominence.
But this week in St. George, Utah, something unex-
pected happened.
After traveling across the country to play on a course
they had not seen before, the team finished Wednesday's
final round of the BYU Dixie Classic in third place, their
best finish of the spring season.
"This Florida women's golf team is back on the map,"
freshman Andrea Watts said.
The Gators shot a team score of 15 over par Wednes-
day, pushing their score to 51 over par for the week, nine
shots ahead of fourth place. Only No. 15 Denver (13 over
par) and Colorado State (35 over par) finished ahead of
UF. While most people did not expect this turnaround to
happen so soon, Watts and the team have been waiting
for this.
"It means we are moving in the right direction and
that we are moving toward what we expected of our-
selves," she said.
Watts led the Gators in the event and finished the final


Meyer vows team's hardest summer ahead

Having Tebow helps players stay
hungry.
"It's having veteran leaders out
here that aren't going to let our team
be complacent," Tebow said on why
this season will be different from
2007.
That's a big step up from that year
when players "didn't take it serious"
and were "playing around" in games
and practice, Stamper said.


Junior receiver David Nelson
bluntly stated that a letdown is "not
going to happen" this year. Meyer
said several times last season that he
hasn't had this level
of leadership from a
team at UF before.
"There's a lot
Football of guys that went
through that year
and went through
that process of going from a national
championship to losing a bowl,"
Nelson said. "We know what we did


wrong. It's up to us to fix those prob-
lems. We felt like we had already ar-
rived. We didn't feel like we needed
to come in to practice and give it a
whole 100 percent effort because we
just won a national championship."
That's not to say Meyer is going to
make this off-season easy on them.
"The only way I know how to do
it is to make it the hardest summer
they've gone through in their lives,"
Meyer said. "Just make it real hard
so they won't have time to be com-
placent."

round with a score of 7 over par for the tournament. Her
individual score was tied for fourth-best.
She credits assistant coach Jay Goble for her solid and
consistent play during the week.
"Our assistant coach, Jay, spent a lot of time work-
ing with me this week," Watts said. "With his help and
the ability to feel like I could focus this tournament, I did
well."
"For me, this was a huge confidence
boost, being able to play this well on such
a difficult golf course all the way across
the country."

Freshman Evan Jensen and sophomore Jessica Yad-
loczky enjoyed solid final rounds. They both shot 2 over
par Wednesday. Jensen finished the event with a score
of 14 over par, while Yadloczky ended with a score of 10
over par.
The Gators will look to build off this performance in
their next tournament, the Lady Gator Invitational, which
will be held in Gainesville beginning April 6.
Watts believes the confidence she received from this
tournament is going to help her and the team in their
home event.
"For me, this was a huge confidence boost, being able
to play this well on such a difficult golf course all the way
across the country," she said. "Coming home and playing
in a tournament on our own turf should be a cakewalk."

UF BASEBALL

Locke throws two innings in return appearance


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer

Almost two months after being
kicked off UF's baseball team, Ste-
phen Locke was officially allowed
back on the team Tuesday.
In only his second game back,
Locke made his first appearance,
starting in UF's 5-3 home win
against North Florida on Wednes-
day.
He lasted two innings and al-
lowed 1 run on one hit before being
pulled because of his pitch count.
"This was a good first appear-
ance," Locke said. "(UF coach Kev-
in O'Sullivan) wanted me to get out
there and knock the rust off since
I really hadn't faced many hitters
this spring."
Locke was replaced on the
mound by Justin Poovey, who
hadn't pitched since March 13 at
Arkansas when he allowed 4 runs
in 2 1/3 innings, but he fared much
better against the Ospreys.
Poovey only allowed four base
runners in his 4 2/3 innings of
scoreless work.
The run support UF (15-8, 3-3
Southeastern Conference) was
missing in its 3-0 loss to North
Florida on Tuesday night started to
return with one swing of the bat by
Matt den Dekker.
In the bottom of the third, den
Dekker lined a solo homer over the
right-field fence to tie the game at
1.
Den Dekker's solo shot got
things started for the Gators, and


he has been igniting the team since
being moved into the leadoff role.
"Ever since we moved him to
the leadoff spot, he has been a much
better hitter," O'Sullivan said. "He
is using the left side of the field a
lot better. Sometimes you put a guy
in the leadoff spot, he is more com-
fortable. Sometimes you put them
in the three or four spot, and they
think they have to do something
differently."
UF took the lead in the next in-
ning on a single by Brandon McAr-
thur, scoring Avery Barnes.
"(Locke) gives us one more
veteran arm."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

While den Dekker continued his
success at the plate and the Gators
managed to rebound from their
tough loss Tuesday, it was Locke's
two innings that stole that show.
On Jan. 28, he was kicked off the
team after being arrested on DUI
charges, but rumors of his return to
the team began to swirl when the
charges against him were dropped
earlier this month due to a lack of
evidence.
With a need for more experi-
enced pitchers, bringing back the
senior lefty was an easy solution to
the problem.
"He gives us one more veteran
arm," O'Sullivan said. "It should
help us certainly in conference
play."
Before Locke could return,


ndrrllull uai Uldllnull/ MIIllladu l 1
UF pitcher Stephen Locke, who was dismissed from the team before the start of the 2009 season,
pitched for the first time following his reinstatement during Wednesday's game against North Florida.


O'Sullivan wanted to make sure the
torn ACL in Locke's right knee was
fully recovered.
Locke said he was cleared by
doctors Monday, and his right leg
was stronger than his left in many
of the tests.


During his time away from the
team, Locke continued to throw on
his own four to five times a week,
and he will be counted on this week-
end to pitch out of the bullpen.
The first time he walked into the
team's locker room, it was one more


step to getting back to his old life.
"It was exciting. I was finally
getting back to my comfort zone,"
Locke said.
"I've played baseball every year
of my life, so it was good to be back
involved with daily routine."
