0 SHE IS ONE OF THREE FINALISTS FOR
PRESIDENT OF A COMMUNITY COLLEGE.

By KATIE EMMETS

kemmets@alligator.org
Santa Fe College's Anne Kress was named
as one of three finalists Monday for president of
Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y.
Kress, who was one of 32 applicants, joined the
SFC staff in 1999 as an associate professor of Eng-
lish.
Since then, she has held positions such as Eng-
lish department chair, interim vice president and
her current position as provost and vice president
of academic affairs.
"Anne has grown up professionally in her
years at Santa Fe," said SFC President Jackson
Sasser. "She is an exceptional educational leader."
Kress indicated her interest in the position
About three months ago, and it took Sasser a while
to get used to the idea of Kress leaving, Sasser
said.

SPECIAL REPORT

Religion graduate students speak out against cuts


By KATHRYN STOLARZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF religion graduate student
Leah Sarat often prays that what-
ever happens to her job and research
position, her talents still can be used


to best serve the world.
Ever since Dean Paul D'Anieri
of the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences announced the college's
$9.3 million budget cut proposal on
March 18, Sarat, along with other
members of the department, has


worried about her future.
Anxiety has recently rippled
throughout the university, especial-
ly tainting the departments, such as
religion, where potential cuts could
be among the steepest.
Sarat, 28, is a third-year doctoral


student in the Religion in the Ameri-
cas program who conducts field
research on religion's role in some
Mexicans' decisions to come to the
U.S. Her only source of income is
her part-time job as a religion teach-
ing assistant at UF.


D'Anieri's proposal would slash
the religion department's budget by
$808,000, much of which comes from
faculty and staff layoffs, according
to the presentation draft plan posted
on the college's Web site.

Recreation classes may see cuts under new proposal


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org
Along with more staff and faculty layoffs,
UF's last sport and fitness classes are also on
the chopping block after the release of budget
cut proposals from three more colleges.


The College of Health and Human Per-
formance proposal, which would cut about
$866,000 and lay off 10 faculty and staff, in-
cludes eliminating the scuba program, which
currently plans to offer seven two-credit scuba
diving classes in the fall.
Under the cut, Cheryl Thacker, coordinator


of the scuba program, would be laid off, sav-
ing the college about $63,000.
Thacker said the
U F cut would also affect
Administration a dozen other part-
time scuba instruc-
tors, two graduate assistants and a repairman,


as well as reduce business at dive shops in the
city.
"It's not just losing my position," she said,
"it's also gonna affect the community."
About 250 to 300 students a semester take
the scuba classes, she said. Most sport and fit-

Gator breaks and enters, bites
EUSTIS, Fla. (AP) Authorities say a small alligator climbed
through the porch door of a house north of Orlando and then bit
the homeowner's arm when it was forced out. The 2-foot-long al-
ligator wandered onto James Gaff's canal-front property in Lake
County on Sunday.
Gaff tried to remove the gator, which then latched onto his
right forearm. A spokeswoman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission says Gaff's wife, Elaine, pried the gator off using a
broom handle and the couple threw the reptile into the water be-
hind their home. The 52-year-old Gaff was treated at a hospital
for minor cuts and scrapes.

Fla. McDonald's restaurants flourish despite economy


By TYLER RUTSTEIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The 2004 movie "Super Size Me" showed the dangerous
truth of an ballooning waistline due to a McDonald's diet,
but now, during the economic recession, the only thing bal-
looning for McDonald's are its sales.
In Gainesville and northeast Florida, the fast food chain
is selling more Big Macs, while the restaurant industry as a
whole continues to struggle.
Allison Garrett, the account supervisor of Dalton Agen-
cy, a public relations agency for McDonald's, said the
stores were doing well throughout northeast Florida and
the country.
"More people are going to quick-service restaurants
now than sit-down restaurants," Garrett said. "A college
town like Gainesville is no different."
McDonald's delivered 55 consecutive
Local months of increases in global same-store sales
News as of November. In 2008, McDonald's was
only one of two companies whose Dow Jones
industrial average share price rose in 2008, with shares
gaining nearly 6 percent.
According to Richard Pollock, a certified public accoun-
tant and financial adviser, the fast-food chain will continue
to be a solid stock option for investors.
McDonald's sales efforts will continue at the end of
April, when it will be offering hamburgers for 49 cents and
cheeseburgers for 69 cents. On April 15, the stores will give
a tax relief day, during which customers can purchase a
Quarter Pounder or Big Mac and get a second one for a
penny.
Allison Dvorchik, a Gainesville mother of two, said her
husband is often out of town, and she doesn't have time to
cook, making McDonald's a quick and cheap option for her
family occasionally.
Others, like Chris Lavery, a retired Gainesville resident,
go to McDonald's because they know they will spend more
if they go to the grocery store.
"If I have to buy a whole meal at the grocery store, I
know it is going to be more expensive than just going to
McDonald's for a bite," Lavery said.


A car goes through the drive-through at the McDonald's on Northwest 13th Street Monday evening.


However, the cheaper prices McDonald's offers aren't
the only ingredient to the recipe that makes what McDon-
ald's CEO Jim Skinner likes to call a "recession-resistant"
restaurant.
After health critics practically accused the restaurant of
making people fat, the chain added healthier food options
to its menu such as apple slices and white-meat Chicken
McNuggets.
Men's Health magazine recently published an article rat-


ing national food chains with a grade. McDonald's earned
a B-minus, while others like Applebees, IHOP and Outback
received F's. Even some of Gainesville's favorite sandwich
shops didn't fair as well as McDonald's, with Jimmy John's
and Quiznos hovering between a C-minus and a B.
Garrett also attributed part of the sales increase to its
new addition to the coffee market. McCafe, the restaurant's
new coffee line, now offers coffee at a lower price than
competitors such as Starbucks.

WARPhaus also in jeopardy


CUTS, from page 1


ness classes, which used to include tennis,
bowling and baseball, were eliminated af-
ter the last round of cuts, she said.
"We were the last holdout," Thacker
said.
The college's proposal would also close
the Living Well program, which would
require cutting the director and a staff
member, and would eliminate the Ath-
letic Training Education Program, which
teaches students how to prevent and care
for sports injuries. Those moves would
save about $342,000.
Three faculty members would lose
their jobs if the training program is elimi-
nated, and four more staff would be cut
if the college's grant support program,
which helps faculty apply for grants, is
eliminated.
Two vacant faculty positions would
also be cut, and a temporary faculty mem-
ber's contract would not be renewed.
Meanwhile, the College of Engineer-
ing's proposal, which would cut about
$5.4 million, includes 18 layoffs 11 staff
and seven faculty which would save
about $1.1 million. Eight vacant faculty
positions would be eliminated, and the
college would hire 23 fewer graduate as-
sistants, saving about $1.3 million. The
college would also have less money to


spend on hiring temporary staff, such as
student workers, cutting funding by about
$250,000.
The plan would eliminate the college's
funding for UF-EDGE (Electronic Deliv-
ery of Graduate Education), its distance
education program and reduce funding
for the Particle Engineering and Research
Center, saving about $840,000.
The college plans to find other means
of funding the programs.
The rest of the money would be saved
by not replacing retiring administrative
staff, miscellaneous expense reductions
and finding new
U F funding for some
Administration faculty and staff,
said engineering
Dean Pramod Khargonekar.
The College of Fine Arts $1.27 million
proposal includes at least twelve layoffs-
five faculty and seven staff. The proposal
also includes giving up the off-campus
WARPhaus art studio and gallery, which
would save about $111,000.
The proposal would cut funding for
four vacant faculty and staff positions and
would reduce the number of graduate as-
sistants.
The remaining cuts would come from
a reorganization of administrative opera-
tions within the college by moving staff
from different programs to one location.


Proposed cuts have moved many to defend their department's importance


RELIGION, from page 1


The proposal is a response to UF President
Bernie Machen's request of a 10 percent bud-
get cut plan from each college and adminis-
trative unit, due to a possible decrease of $72
million to $75 million in state funding in 2009-
2010, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said.
Under the proposed cut, Sarat doesn't
know whether she can complete her remain-
ing two years as a graduate student at UF and
be one of the lucky few to still teach religion
at UF.
At 2 a.m. last week, Sarat was awake "ago-
nizing" over the possible cut with her room-
mate, a fellow UF religion major.
While buzz about a possible department
cut has filled department members' ears for
several months, she said, she thinks about it
throughout the day.
"It's a pretty constant backdrop," Sarat


said. "It's just an uncertainty, and it's just
kind of hard to move on with your research
and work."
Proposed department cuts have moved
many to defend the importance of their stud-
ies.
Sarat said religion influences the decisions
of politicians and terrorists, adding that many
people turn to religion to answer tough ques-
tions about things such as life and death, poli-
tics, society and race.
In response to the proposal, Sarat led fel-
low religion graduate students in writing a
grievance letter, which was posted on The
Gainesville Sun's Web site on Tuesday.
During lunch breaks in her office, Sarat's
colleagues and fellow graduate students vent
their fears about the proposal, she said.
Talk often centers on the worry that 65 per-
cent of the department's budget will be cut,
along with the elimination of about 10 profes-


sors, possibly tenured faculty, leaving about
four total to teach religion.
As a result, many who would be directly
affected by the changes have turned to sug-
gesting creative solutions.
"I knew there was a budget crisis,
but I never thought it would affect
the religion department because
it's such a strong department
faculty-wise,"

President Caleb Simmons of the Religion
Graduate Student Association, 27, said after
the dean's presentation, he was so fired-up
that he ran to his office to change into one of
the shirts.
"I knew there was a budget crisis, but I
never thought it would affect the religion de-
partment because it's such a strong depart-
ment faculty-wise," Simmons said.
Simmons, religion Chairwoman Vasudha
Narayanan and a few others will meet with
Provost Joe Glover on April 6 to plead their


:udent As- case against the cut.
sociation Proposed budget cuts will not be finalized
until the university's budget is announced by
the state, which will be after the legislative ses-
Ssion ends on May 1, Sikes said.
ng a bke Machen and Glover will then submit their
c helped proposals to UF's Board of Trustees to make
out 10 T- the ultimate decisions about the cuts, she said.

6,800 take survey


About 6,800 students have
taken UF's Student Experience at
Research Universities (SERU) on-
line survey, which almost all un-
dergraduates have to take in order
to be eligible for the football ticket
lottery.
UF hopes to use the survey to
improve student programs and
academic offerings, said Marie Ze-
glen, UF's assistant provost and di-
rector of Institutional Planning and
Research.
Though the survey is being
conducted while UF is examining
ways to meet a possible $72 million
to $75 million budget cut, it will
not be used to determine which
programs should stay or go next
year, Zeglen said.
The University of California at
Berkeley was contracted at a price
of $18,000 to create the survey, she
said. That money doesn't count the
time UF staff have put into imple-
menting it and will spend studying


the results this summer.
There has been some confusion
recently as to whether the survey
is mandatory, including an e-mail
sent to the French department list-
servbyan adviser stating the survey
is "com-
UF pulsory
Administration forallU.F.
majors."
Even though it's not manda-
tory, some students are not too
thrilled with the survey.
"It was very repetitive and real-
ly annoying," said UF elementary
education junior Katy Gibson.
"I don't think you should have
to take it to get football tickets," she
added.
Students who are under 18
years old, non-degree seeking or
only enrolled in correspondence
courses are not required to take the
survey to get tickets.

Kress said. "It is a wonderful day to work for

Kress said SFC is an important part of
Gainesville and of her professional life, adding
that it has been hard to think of leaving.
"The only reason I would ever think of leaving
would be to go to a community college like Santa

excellence," she said.

Editorial

Auto Apocalypse

Obama must hold auto

giants accountable

( er the past two days, automotive giants Chrysler and
M have been held increasingly accountable by the
Obama Administration for their lack of action.
In the wake of Monday's announcement, in which the White
House orchestrated the exit of GM's chairman, President Barack
Obama's latest words amount to what The New York Times is
calling "a do-or-die ultimatum."
Speaking on Tuesday, Obama outlined his expectations for
the two beleaguered corporations strict standards that must
be met if the companies wish to continue to receive additional
tax dollars from the government.
One of the first measures included under the plan requires
Chrysler and Fiat to join a partnership within the next 30 days if
the automaker seeks to appeal for increased financial support.
Obama hopes that the pressure placed on the automotive
industry will lead to greater emphasis on restructuring the re-
lationship between creditors, unions and stakeholders so that
additional bailout money is not spent in vain.
The Editorial Board agrees with the Obama Administra-
tion's decision to, at the very least, appear to hold the automo-
tive industry more accountable for its failure to better utilize the
funds allocated to it in the latest bailout package.
We wonder, though, if Chrysler and GM fail to heed Obama's
warning, will the president continue to clean up the mess that is
the auto industry or finally hold it accountable for its inaction?
For Obama, his administration's increased heat on Detroit
should work to soothe public opinion, but the true challenge
remains 60 days from now when revised plans are due from the
two automotive giants.


Financial Flub


A merica's economic
downturn has ush-
- ered in tumultuous
financial times across col-
lege campuses, leaving some
schools to employ question-
able tactics during the admis-
sions process.
According to an article in
The New York Times, pro-
spective students able to pay
tuition out of pocket, as op-
posed to relying on financial
aid, have become the apple
of admissions officers' eyes in
the wake of mounting budget
cuts.
Unfortunately, doing this
goes against the general prac-
tice employed by universities
in which applicants' academic
futures are determined on a
need-blind basis.
By disregarding the cus-
tom of admitting students
regardless of their zip code or
lack of Ferrari, schools across
the nation are serving to limit
the collegiate possibilities for
teenagers from lower-income
families.
The changes to the applica-


tion process have resulted in
wealthy parents discouraging
their sons or daughters from
indicating on their applica-
tions an interest in financial
aid thereby boosting their
chances for admission.
For schools like Brandeis
University, simply manipu-
lating their admission prac-
tices has allowed the college
to continue to consider them-
selves need-blind.
Since Brandeis' interna-
tional, wait-listed and trans-
fer students are judged based
upon their financial back-
grounds, the school has re-
sorted to accepting more ap-
plicants who fall under such
distinctions.
The Editorial Board under-
stands that the current eco-
nomic climate has forced the
hands of college presidents
into making difficult budget
cut decisions.
But wealthier students
shouldn't be shown favorit-
ism over those who are less
affluent with otherwise equal
applications.

Letters to the Editor
Concealed carry laws justified
As a concealed-weapons permit holder
and admitted UF law student, I couldn't
help but shake my head at Monday's Al-
ligator editorial "Guns have no place on
college campuses," in which the question
was posed, "Who is to say that if passed,
these bills won't lead to coeds pulling guns
on their significant other over a minor dis-
agreement or professors feeling unsafe in
their own classrooms?"
Do we really have to premise the debate
on already-disproved grounds?
When Florida passed "right to carry"
legislation in 1987, the same predictions
were made. "Blood will run in the streets,
permit holders will just 'snap' during mi-
nor arguments," we were told. Despite
these apocalyptic warnings, Armageddon
never happened.
Today, one in 37 adult Floridians is li-
censed to carry a firearm, and studies ana-
lyzing the 22 years that Florida has been is-
suing permits have repeatedly found such
conclusions as "Florida permit holders are
300 times less likely than the general popu-
lation to commit a crime (Hoover Institu-
tion, Stanford University)" and "157 out of
1,104,468 permits (0.014 percent) have been
revoked due to firearms-related violations
(FL Dept. of State, 2005)"?
My question to the Editorial Board is
given the proven track record of Florida
permit holders, what makes a permit hold-
er somehow more dangerous on campus
than at, say, Wal-Mart?
Does crossing an imaginary line magi-


cally transform him into a killer

Guns on campus editorial lacks fact
Leave it to the Alligator Editorial Board
to argue gun rights on purely emotional
rather than logical or factual grounds.
They pose a couple of hypothetical situ-
ations in which a concealed weapon holder
wildly pulls out his or her gun and reck-
lessly endangers the lives of others.
Never mind that concealed weapon
holders have the lowest violent crime rate
of any demographic in the U.S.
Never mind that Utah has allowed con-
cealed carry on nine public campuses since
2006, and none of these colleges have re-
ported a single instance of gun-related vio-
lence, accident or theft in that time.
Never mind that in order to obtain a con-
cealed weapon license, one must complete
several tests to prove one's proficiency and
safety with the weapon.
Never mind that public universities are
state properties, and concealed carry is per-
mitted in movie theaters, shopping malls,
grocery stores and many other very public
areas.
Even if you view the Second Amend-
ment as somewhat outdated (as do I), it is
irrelevant to the subject at hand.

Freshman DT Hunter preps for larger role next season


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

A little less than a year ago, Ur-
ban Meyer said it would be hard to
keep incoming freshman defensive
tackle Omar Hunter off the field.
You could almost shove all of
Hunter's 308 pounds out there with
the first-team defense.
Meyer wasn't bashful about
praising Hunter's abilities, calling
him the Tim Tebow of last year's re-
cruiting class.
When Hunter arrived in
Gainesville last summer, the blogs
started up and the message boards
oozed in anticipation.
He was considered one of the
biggest if not the biggest prize
of the 2008 recruiting class, and for

good reason. Hunter was the No.
2 defensive lineman by Scout.com
and Rivals.com.
Unlike previous underachievers
at defensive tackle, Hunter looked
like one of those rare freshmen who
would start as soon as they could
find his jersey size.
Hunter's back and ankle had
other ideas. The freshman was con-
stantly injured, and as Lawrence
Marsh and Terron Sanders stepped
up to grab the starting tackle posi-
tions, Hunter and his potential be-
came distant memories for fans.
In what would have been a shock-
er for Meyer and his staff when they
signed him, Hunter redshirted after
playing in just three games.
"It was a rough first year," he
said. "A lot of things set me back."


Now, after being on campus for
almost a year, Hunter is getting his
chance to rise up the depth chart and
back into prominence.
"It was a rough first year. A
lot of things set me back."

UF freshman defensive tackle

"It's time," defensive line coach
Dan McCamey said. "He's been
here since May, almost a year. It's
time."
Hunter's playing chances have
improved since tackles Torrey Davis
and John Brown left UF's program a
little more than two weeks ago.
Still, for a former five-star recruit
who was praised on nearly every
down for the first 18 years of his life,

having to compete for playing time
is unknown territory.
"I've learned those stars don't
mean nothing. Absolutely nothing,"
Hunter said. "When you get here,
everyone's on an even playing field.
Everyone's just as big as you, just as
fast as you, just as strong as you."
In other words, it was time for
Hunter to man up.
"It's definitely different," Hunter
said. "I'm willing to earn my stripes.
Whatever I have to do. If I have to
play the backup role until Marsh is
gone, that's what I'm going to do."
That competitive attitude is ex-
actly what Meyer has grown to love
about his program now. A few years
ago, a healthy Hunter could have
been guaranteed multiple snaps a
game. Not anymore.


* UF freshman first baseman Preston Tucker was
named the Southeastern Conference Freshman
of the Week on Monday after batting .500 in the
Gators' five games last week. He also had six
RBIs and three extra-base hits in three games
over the weekend against Alabama.


"There's no free lunches around
here," McCamey said.
For Hunter, it didn't even seem
like a healthy body came free of
charge. Hunter called part of the
season "depressing" and said there
were times when he really wanted
to quit.
"I felt like I couldn't do anything
right," Hunter said.
Then strength coach Mickey Ma-
rotti talked to Hunter, and the red-
shirt freshman realized there's still
much he wants to accomplish. Even
though he had such high expecta-
tions coming in, Hunter was still just
a freshman with four years of play-
ing time ahead of him.
"He's a better player," McCamey
said. "He needs to be in the rotation,
and it's up to him to do that."

Gators, Seminoles to resume rivalry in Jacksonville


* SENIOR STEPHEN LOCKE
WILL START AGAINST FSU.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

It's hard to say which causes a
bigger swing in momentum win-
ning a rivalry game or losing a rival-
ry game with a rematch scheduled
just two weeks later.
When UF (18-8) and FSU (16-8)
met in McKethan Stadium on March
17 for the first of three games this
season, both teams were struggling
to earn victories.
The No. 20 Gators came in to the
matchup after suffering a sweep at
the hands of Arkansas that capped
off a stretch of seven losses in their
last 11 games. Similarly, FSU had
just dropped a game to Virginia,
making it six losses in its last nine.
With both teams desperate for
a win, UF edged out FSU 5-4 in a
3-hour-51-minute St. Patrick's Day
marathon.
"This team has been down on
itself, and it was a tough week-
end at Arkansas," UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan said after the win. "Base-
ball is a really difficult game be-
cause of a lot of mental stuff going
on, so we just tried to wipe the slate
clean."
Since junior catcher Buddy Mun-
roe laced the walk-off single to right-
center field that gave the Gators that
5-4 win, the team has ridden a wave
of momentum all the way in to to-
night's contest with the Seminoles in


Jacksonville at 7.
UF has won nine of its last 10
games, including sweeps of Tennes-
see and Alabama, and has climbed
into Baseball America's Top 25 for
the first time since Feb. 23 after start-
ing the season 3-0.
Senior Stephen Locke (0-0, 0.00
ERA), who rejoined the team in the
middle of last week, will get the start
in his second appearance of the sea-
son. The Gators have had trouble
finding a consistent starting rotation,
and the return of Locke should give
them a stabilizing veteran capable of
eating up innings.
"He gives us more depth and
another quality left-hander that has
been there, done that," O'Sullivan
said.
FSU, however, has been just
as hot since the dramatic defeat at
the hands of its in-state rival. The
Seminoles have won seven of their
last eight and are coming off a road
sweep of Maryland in College Park.
If the momentum FSU is riding
isn't enough to equal that of UF,
perhaps a little history will serve as
a boost.
The Gators also took the first
game of the series last season in
Gainesville before getting shel-
lacked in Jacksonville 10-2 and nar-
rowly dropping the third game 4-2
in Tallahassee.
While Locke and a slew of fresh-
man arms such as Alex Panteliodis
(2-2, 4.20 ERA), Anthony DeSclafani
(2-0, 3.80 ERA) and Greg Larson (2-
1, 1.42 ERA) have provided an un-
expected lift for UF, preseason ace
Patrick Keating (2-3, 5.72 ERA) has

been surprisingly disappointing in
the early part of the season.
The senior has all but lost his Fri-
day-night designation and has been
relegated to the bullpen at times
during the season.


Against FSU, O'Sullivan went
to Keating to shut the door in the
ninth inning, but the right-hander
coughed up the lead and allowed
the Seminoles to tie the game.
Despite Keating's struggles, his


catcher is optimistic that he can tum
things around.
"Pat's going to be fine," Munroe
said. "He's always got good stuff.
I got more confidence in him than
anyone else."


Donovan smart to remain in Gainesville


Good move, Billy Donovan.
The UF men's basketball coach passed up the
Kentucky job for the second time in three years
Friday.
The never-ending speculation surrounding now-for-
mer Wildcats coach Billy Gillispie had Donovan in the
running well before Gillispie was officially fired at 4:30
p.m. Friday.
Donovan did not take long to quell the rumors.
Donovan, a former Kentucky assistant coach under
Rick Pitino, released the following statement shortly af-
ter the Wildcats formally announced one of the worst-
kept secrets of last week: Gillispie's firing.
"In response to the rumors circulating about my in-
terest in other jobs, I wanted to address this as quickly
as possible. I am committed to the University of Florida
and look forward to continuing to build our program
here."
My editors, in fact, found it so insignificant (or per-
haps old) that they put no mention of the incident in
Monday's paper.
I beg to differ. This is an important decision for both
Donovan and UF.
Listen, the grass isn't always greener. An ironic but
obvious example of this is the Kentucky problem itself.
Wildcats boosters ran Tubby Smith out of town in 2007
because he didn't meet their expectations.
Whether those expectations are in any way realistic in
this day and age where parity is higher and no power
ever really stays at the top anymore is a topic for an-
other column.
In 10 seasons, Smith won a national championship
and made the Elite Eight on three other occasions. He
won the Southeastern Conference regular season and
SEC Tournament titles five times each. He averaged
more than 26 wins per season and won more than 75
percent of his games.


S That brought Gillispie to Lex-
ington, Ky., after Donovan, who
reached unprecedented status
among the coaching ranks after
winning back-to-back national
Phil Kegler titles, turned down the Wildcats'
Phil on the Hill offer before his Orlando Magic fi-
pkegler@alligator.org asco.
It's hard to believe Donovan
will ever make his way to Lexing-
ton now. He has spurned the Wildcats twice, clearly let-
ting them know the Kentucky job does not mean more to
him than his current beloved status in Gainesville.
I would be the first to agree that Donovan under-
achieved the past two years by missing the NCAA
Tournament in back-to-back seasons after making nine
straight appearances in the field of 65.
Some have pointed out how much better the Gators
would have been if Donovan had been able to beat out
Gillispie for All-SEC big man Patrick Patterson. It is a
valid point.
Still, the Gators had plenty of talent to get to the Big
Dance this year, but it was unfortunately only shown in
too-short glimpses. Not being able to get the most out
of his players is a knock on Donovan, and his revelation
March 23 that this year's team "overachieved" is, quite
frankly, ridiculous.
But if Donovan (rather than his players) receives most
of the criticism for the failed rebuilding effort, he cannot
also be denied the praise earned for two straight national
championships.
It's one of the terrible double standards in America:
Players get the praise, and coaches get the blame.
So celebrate the news that Donovan is returning to
Gainesville, because now his name will remain synony-
mous with UF.
And that's best for all parties involved.

Meyer doesn't see I-formation in Gators' future


By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator.org

Those on hand to watch UF's
spring practices in the past week
have been treated to a bizarre
sight: quarterbacks Tim Tebow
and John Brantley taking snaps
under center.
Under new offensive coordi-
nator Steve Addazio, the Gators
are experimenting with the I-for-
mation in addition to their usual
spread offense.
"We're testing it out, I guess
you could say," Brantley said.
"We'll see how it goes."
According to coach Urban
Meyer, it's not going very well so
far.
Meyer cited the lack of depth
at tight end and the absence of
a dependable fullback as rea-
sons why the I-formation doesn't
have a promising future for the
Gators.
"That I-package, I'm not sure
how long that will be sticking
around here," Meyer said.
"You want to have it in, but
like I said four years ago when I
walked on this campus, we don't
really have an offense (for it).
It's an offense based on what we


have, so we can run (the I-forma-
tion) all we want, but if the play-
ers struggle or they're young and


inexperienced, we won't run that
package."
Last spring, the Gators prac-


ticed in formations with two tight
ends to utilize Cornelius Ingram
and Aaron Hernandez.

UF quarterback Tim Tebow practices taking the snap under center during spring practice Wednesday.
Although UF tried out the I-formation in practice, it looks like the team might not use it next season.


But those plans took a big hit
when Ingram went down with a
knee injury and missed the entire
season.
With Ingram now headed for
an NFL career, Hernandez is the
only reliable tight end left.
"Right now, you have Aaron
Hernandez, who's playing great
- one of the top five players on
the team but (freshman Des-
mond) Parks has no idea which
way right or left is, and the full-
backs are struggling as well, so
it's not looking very good," Mey-
er said.
OKINE BEEFING UP: Earl Okine
has eaten and lifted his way into
a new position.
The Gainesville High gradu-
ate and redshirt freshman was re-
cruited as a 235-pound defensive
end, but at 280 pounds, his future
is on the interior of the defensive
line.
"Coach McCarney had a feel-
ing (Okine would end up at de-
fensive tackle)," Meyer said. "I
thought he'd be a Jarvis Moss-
type end, but he just keeps grow-
ing and growing.
"He's up to 280 pounds,
benching 400. And he's not done
growing, either."

bench are playing well, then they deserve
the opportunity to get in there and play."
Saints left fielder Andy Mee continued
his hot streak by leading the Saints with
three hits for the game. Catcher Brett Boze-
man brought home 3 runs in his five at-
bats, while third baseman Chad Graziano
