UF ADMINISTRATION


System sees anti-spam, forwarding changes


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

UF will be cracking down on spam e-mail
and will begin allowing students to forward
their university e-mail to outside accounts
again in the coming weeks.
The changes are costing UF about $300,000,
according to Chuck Frazier, UF's interim chief
information officer.


Most of the money is going toward new
spam-filtering technologies, Frazier said. UF
would have to shell out another $300,000 in
two to three years if it continued using the
same technologies, he said.
The cost estimates don't account for staff
labor, he said.
One reason UF had to stop allowing stu-
dents to forward their university e-mail to
outside accounts was because the amount of
spam coming from UF accounts caused some


"A relatively small percentage of
all the e-mail is really legitimate
e-mail."

e-mail providers, such as AOL, to block UF e-
mail, he said.
The policy that bans forwarding to outside


accounts has been in effect since fall of 2005,
according to Alligator archives.
Currently, about 2 million of the 3 million
or more e-mails handled by WebMail every
day are spam, Frazier said.

Panel discusses


UF budget cuts

By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer

UF administrators and student leaders spoke about preserving
quality in the midst of sweeping budget cuts Tuesday.
The symposium, "University in Crisis," highlighted the effects
of the economic downturn on UF. About 70 people attended the
five-speaker panel.
The presenters included UF Provost Joe Glov-
er, UF professor and economist David Denslow,
Student Body President-elect Jordan Johnson,
along with Alligator editor in chief Nicole Safker
and managing editor Kristin Bjornsen.
Glover, who spoke first, said UF had to cut
$69 million from its budget last year, adding UF
administrators predict budget cuts to fall be-
Glover tween $30 million and $90 million for the next
academic year, depending on a compromise
that must be forged between the Florida Senate and House, Glover
said.
While the Senate has been willing to include various revenue
increases such as the new cigarette tax, the House has been more
reluctant, and both are looking at Obama's stimulus money differ-
ently. All of the university's individual college's budget proposals
will be released Thursday in a compilation that will be made ac-
cessible on UF President Bernie Machen's Web site. Matt Tripp/ Alligator

The shoes belong to Krishnas,

Man inappropriately touches UF women on campus


* UPD HAS NO LEADS AS OF
TUESDAY MORNING.

By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

A man inappropriately touched
three female UF students on campus
Monday after claiming he was try-
ing to remove a bug off each of their
bodies, according to the University
Police Department.


The first two incidents occurred
on the Reitz Union North Lawn be-
tween 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. The third
occurred at about 5:15 p.m. near the
Fine Arts C building.
The suspect is described as a 20-
to 30-year-old Middle Eastern man
with a thick accent who is between 5
feet 3 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall.
Each time, he targeted white fe-
males between the ages of 18 and
22.
In the third incident, he ap-
proached the woman at the Fine


Arts C building, frantically telling
her she had a large bug on her back,
according to a UPD news release.
While brushing her back, he told
the woman the bug crawled under
her shirt. He then lifted her shirt and
placed his hand on her
On back.
Campus Next, he told the
woman the bug had
crawled down her pants and tried
to reach into her pants, at which
point the woman pulled away and
told him to stop touching her. He


then tried to hug her before walking
away toward the center of campus,
the release stated.
UPD Lt. Darren Baxley said the
other two women reported similar
stories.
The suspect, who is believed to
have dark hair and a dark complex-
ion, was reportedly wearing khaki
shorts or pants, a burnt-orange shirt
and may have had metal-framed
eyeglasses.
Baxley said UPD had no leads
as of Tuesday morning. He said it's


possible other women have been
assaulted as well, but have not re-
ported it yet.
"I think, based on my experience,
that typically when we get a spree
pattern like this, there will be more
victims that we don't know about,"
he said.
Baxley said UPD plans to charge
the culprit with battery for all three
incidents.
He asked anyone with informa-
tion about the alleged crimes to con-
tact UPD at 392-1111.

SFC Building W to reopen after tests find no asbestos


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

After an asbestos scare forced its closure
on Friday, Santa Fe College's Health Sciences
Building W reopened Tuesday after testing.
Air and dust samples collected in the build-
ing contained no asbestos according to test
results received on Monday night, said SFC
spokesman Larry Keen.


"Our main priority in this case is the safety
and welfare of our students and faculty," he
said. "We are certainly pleased with the re-
sults."
Asbestos, a fibrous mineral, is commonly
used for insulation and fire proofing, accord-
ing to the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency Web site. When asbestos is damaged
or disturbed, the fibers may become airborne,
causing diseases such as lung cancer if inhaled,
according to the site.


"Our main priority in this case
is the safety and welfare of our
students and faculty."
Larry Keen
SFC spokesman

While replacing the floor tiles in several
rooms, crews became concerned that there
was asbestos in the tile adhesive used during


the building's construction in 1984.
The tile adhesive had blackened, a sign that
it could have contained asbestos, Keen said.
The building was closed at about 1 p.m.
Friday, and classes were canceled until the
building reopened. The test, which cost SFC
$15,000, was performed by EMSL Analytical,
Inc. SFC is still in the process of replacing the
tiles, according to a release.
In recent years, campus-wide asbestos tests
have found no traces of asbestos, Keen said.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

SG approves more than $500K for academic budget


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Senators voted to approve
the $569,602 academic budget
for the 2009-2010, which will
be dealt out to UF's 24 different
college councils.
They presented, but did not
vote on, the $582,513 organiza-
tional budget that funds 87 UF
student groups.
Senate will vote on that
budget in a special meeting on
Wednesday.
The academic budget was
approved following a special
Senate meeting on Monday to
discuss amendments. At Mon-
day's meeting, senators voted
to take $7,613 from the special
events co-sponsorship budget
line in order to cover a deficit
that came from 22 extra stu-
dent organizations that joined
SG's budget cycle this year.
The majority of senators also
voted against an amendment
that would have, if passed,
removed $22,499 from the co-
sponsorship budget line.
Under the proposal, the
money would be given to Sen-
ate's Budget and Allocations
Committee to help fund stu-
dent organizations.


Orange and Blue Party Sen.
Jonathan Ossip said this money
would be better used to fund
student organizations, which
are the backbone of UF.
But not all senators felt the
same way.
"SGP and Accent are two of
most prestigious organizations
on campus," said Gator Party
Sen. Thomas Hilton. "They put
on a bunch of shows and need
their entire budget."
Senators also added Gators
for a Sustainable Campus back
onto the budget cycle in Mon-
day's meeting. Later in the
meeting, senators unanimously
passed a resolution condemn-
ing acts of antisemitism. The
resolution was written after a
swastika was spray-painted on
the side of Alpha Epsilon Pi, a
traditionally Jewish fraternity.
A five-page minority report
was also submitted at Tues-
day's meeting by the Orange
and Blue Party that discussed
problems the party had with
the budget committee.
Sen. Alden Gillespy, who
submitted the report, wrote
that there were procedural is-
sues when giving notice for Matt Tripp/ Alligator

UF sophomore decides on major after 15 attempts


By AUBREY SIEGEL
Alligator Contributing Writer
At UF, No. 15 usually stands
for quarterback Tim Tebow, but
for Bobby Moon, it's the number of
times he's declared a major.
The now-economics sophomore
still plans to graduate on time.
Moon began college as a mathemat-
ics major and went through physics,
applied physiology and kinesiology,
economics, philosophy, psychology,
zoology, astronomy, aerospace en-


gineering, food science and human
nutrition, back to applied physiol-
ogy and kinesiology, biology, en-
vironmental science, geology and
finally economics again.
"It's not that I didn't like some-
thing about my majors," he said. "I
just always found something else
that I liked better and wanted to
try."
The average UF student changes
majors 1.5 times over his or her four
years here, said Dr. Albert Matheny,
director of the Academic Advising


"It's not that I didn't like
something about my ma-
jors. I just always found
something else that I liked
better and wanted to try."
Bobby Moon
UF sophomore

Center.
"Fifteen is a lot of major chang-
es," Matheny said. "It's right up
there with the most I've ever seen."


For Moon, the challenge was
finding just one major to stick with.
"It's not that I lack motivation,
it's just that I like too many things,"
Moon said. Moon went to six differ-
ent advisers to make the changes.
After several changes, an adviser
finally suggested that he just change
his major to "exploratory" so that he
could sit in one major while looking
into others.
"Exploratory felt like a waste,"
Moon said. "I had all of the (prereq-
uisites) for everything, so I thought I


might as well be something."
Moon insists that he has finally
found a major he is going to stick
with.
"People are surprised that I say
I am going to stick with economics
because I say that every time with
every major," Moon said.
Because of Moon's frequent
changes, all of his schedules were
created during drop/add week.
"I'm a pro at ISIS-stalking,"
Moon said. "I'm the best ISIS-stalker
in the land."

Budget Blues

FSU faces the prospect

of making massive cuts
While budget woes at UF have students and faculty
up in arms over a murky academic future, the fi-
nancial situation at Florida State University teeters
on the horrific.
Word out of Tallahassee reveals news of a proposal re-
leased on Monday by FSU administrators outlining deep
budget cuts which would go into effect under a worst-case
scenario. Ranging from the elimination of 21 programs to the
closure of a satellite campus in Panama City, FSU would also
be forced to fire 350 faculty members under the plan.
According to an article in the Tallahassee Democrat, the
proposal calls to cut areas of study including anthropology,
German and oceanography, among others. Additionally, oth-
er programs will see reduced funding, restructuring or even
be forced to merge.
The overhaul of the university stems from decreased public
funding from the state legislature for the upcoming fiscal year.
Under the Senate budget, FSU stands to receive nearly $30 mil-
lion less in 2009-2010 than the previous year. The figure jumps
to nearly $80 million based on the current House budget.
The Editorial Board can't help but feel downright awful for
the entire Florida State community. While Gators and Semi-
noles may be foes in the athletic arena, we both share the com-
mon goal of developing individuals through higher education
with hopes of making positive contributions in life. We sin-
cerely hope there is a way for FSU to avoid a tenuous situa-
tion that would alter the school's otherwise seemingly bright
future.
America's resurgence will not take shape without the help
of higher education.


Twitter Terror


Quickly becoming as
hipster-chic as a me-
dium green tea fro-
yo from Pinkberry, Twitter's
emergence on the social net-
working scene offers users
a fresh alternative from the
likes of Facebook.
But like frequenting the
L.A.-based chemical-laden
dessert destination on a daily
basis, overuse of Twitter's ser-
vices may also prove harmful
for your health.
According to a study con-
ducted by the University of
Southern California, Twitter's
constant updates, known as
"tweets," are too fast for the
human brain to process. As a
result, scientists are concerned
young people will become in-
different to a tweet informing
the user about a tragic or up-
setting news story.
Ultimately, if individu-
als rely too heavily on tweets
for his or her source of news,
evidence shows people may
harm their moral compass.


While humans are capable
of responding to pain in a
rapid fashion, they are unable
to process admiration and
compassion as quickly a
problem when mentally com-
prehending a constant stream
of tweets on Twitter.
Fortunately for members
of the Twitterverse, the study
also looked at television news
updates, which proved to be
more harmful than receiving
frequent tweets.
Speaking from personal
experience, a few members of
the Editorial Board have been
known to get their daily tweet
on from time to time, but they
- shockingly seem to be
doing just fine.
Hell, on the long list of
things we do that are detri-
mental to our health, exces-
sive tweeting has to fall some-
where in between a lack of
sleep and a diet relying far too
heavily on rolls from Leo's.
Tweet away.

'FML' offers posters a chance to vent


t's the biggest pity party on the Internet, and you're
all invited.
Fmylife.com is a blog where users anonymously
post short messages containing "everyday anecdotes
likely to happen to anyone." These unfortunate events
start with "Today" and end with "FML" which, un-
surprisingly, is an acronym for "f--- my life," the phrase
people have been muttering more and more frequently
when something goes wrong.
I subscribe to the school of thought that something
is funny until someone gets hurt, at which point it be-
comes hilarious. This may make me an awful person,
but I can rest easy knowing that I'm not the only one
who feels this way.
Fmylife.com has shot up to one of the top 100 Web
sites visited in the English-speaking world and it is
schadenfreude at its best. Where else can you anony-
mously judge just how messed up other people's lives
are and laugh to your heart's content at their misery?
It's particularly uplifting when I've had a bad day.
Going through the self-deprecating stories tells me I'm
not alone. Nay, they tell me that somewhere out there,
somebody's life sucks way more than mine.
Some of the stories seem too good to be true if
"good" is the right word to use. Users can vote up a
story by agreeing that the life of the person telling the
story truly is f---ed or bury it by saying they deserved it.
A competition of sorts has developed to see whose story
fails the most miserably. Most of the posts are, I'm sure,
stretches of the truth at best. That still doesn't make the
good ones any less funny.
That said, the FML trend has gone so far over the
top lately. What started as a hilarious albeit slightly
facetious way to waste time has evolved into a way


for privileged kids to complain
about trivial matters.
In the grand scheme of things,
college kids probably don't have
much to complain about but
we couldn't be any more melo-
Naudia Jawad dramatic. Oversleeping and
letters@alligator.org missing class is not FML-worthy.
Neither is falling down some
stairs (unless, of course, you manage to break both your
clavicles on the way down).
At least your girlfriend didn't break up with you be-
cause you're not enough like a sparkling vampire out
of a novel.
Something truly worthy of a FML should be crafted
with care. To properly construct a LOL-worthy story
about how f---ed your life is can be a fine art. And some
things just don't make the FML cut.
The phrase "f--- my life" brings to mind abject misery
and a pointlessness to go on, not how you're supposed
to feel after you realize that guy you've been trying to
get to notice you says you smell like a grandma.
At least you haven't fallen in love with a man online
only to learn that "he" is really a 17-year-old girl from
Chesterfield, Mo. ouch.
What we can all take away from fmylife.com is not
to simply pass judgment on how f---ed someone else's
life is but to realize that we all have pretty messed up
days.
And just when you think your day couldn't get any
worse, fmylife.com is right there to let you know it most
certainly can.

Letters to the Editor
'Organic' no guarantee of quality
Most people think that by buying "or-
ganic" they are guaranteed safer, healthier
food. In reality, this food, which costs twice
as much, may not be any better than normal
food.
The fundamentals of "organic" agricul-
ture are not quite the same as USDA organic
labeling. Organic farming is based on sustain-
ability, humane treatment of animals and be-
ing ecologically conscious. However, to have
"USDA certified organic" printed on the label
only "means it is generally free of synthetic
substances; contains no antibiotics and hor-
mones; has not been irradiated or fertilized
with sewage sludge; was raised without the
use of most conventional pesticides; and con-
tains no genetically modified ingredients."
There are no requirements for sustainable
agriculture practices, no limitations on how
far the products are shipped and definitely


no mandates that the products need to be
healthier than those produced using conven-
tional agriculture methods.
There are a few general benefits from or-
ganic foods, such as reduced pesticide use.
Also, many of the food products appear
healthier on the label than the traditional
alternatives. However, organic food is not
going to take care of America's biggest food
problem: obesity. Organic junk food is still
junk food.
If you really want to help the organic
movement, drive down to your local farmers
market and you will undoubtedly find the
fresh, healthy foods you want while support-
ing your community. If you want to live a
healthier life, try exercising regularly and cut-
ting sugar from your diet. The USDA organic
label is a marketing gimmick, nothing more.

GM food products need to be labeled
While I agree with the heading of Amanda
Sookdeo's article from Tuesday's letter to the
editor, "GMOs represent technology of the
future," new technologies shouldn't invali-
date good old American values.
Since its inception, America has experi-
enced unprecedented change primarily due
to technological advances analogous to that
of GMOs: From cars and color TVs to the In-
ternet and the iPhone. However, even in the
wake of such enormous change, the funda-
mental rights our forefathers granted us have
all but disappeared: The rights to vote, speak
freely and even write opinion editorials.
Why, then, are we suddenly being denied the
right to know whether the food we eat has
been genetically modified or not?
Opponents of genetically-modified-food


labeling argue the added cost of differentiat-
ing between GM and non-GM foods is unnec-
essary. Sookdeo takes this argument a step
further, suggesting people would view GM
foods as "a harmful substance and not buy
the product." But since when is the profitabil-
ity of a biotechnology company of a higher
priority than the freedom of choice?
As Peter Phillips put it in his article, "A
Survey of National Labeling Policies of GM
Foods," in the 2000 edition of The Journal
of Agrobiotechnology Management and
Economics, "There appears to be universal
agreement that consumer choice needs to be
enhanced through effective labeling, to allow
consumers to choose between competing GM
and GM-free food products." Apparently
we've missed the memo.

Biofuels offer America a viable solution to the energy crisis


With war in the oil-producing overseas nations,
soaring fuel prices, knowledge of immense en-
vironmental impacts of petroleum and coal and
their finite supply, it's apparent that an alternative energy
source needs to be implemented.
Many have been proposed, each with advantages and
disadvantages. Nuclear energy has gained support due
to its available technology and reliability, but the needed
uranium has a finite supply and is polluting to extract.
In addition, its hazardous byproduct has no storage solu-
tion. Solar and wind energy are also good options, but
they can be unreliable if the wind isn't blowing or the sun
isn't shining. And because transportation is an issue, they
are difficult to make available across our existing energy
grid. This leaves us with one more alternative: biofuels.
In order for an alternative fuel to be viable, it must
meet four criteria: be producible at sufficient quantities,
show superior environmental benefits, be economically
competitive and provide a net energy gain over produc-


Anna Autrey tion. Biofuel successfully addresses
SpeakingOut each of these.
Speaking Out
Biofuel is the energy that is re-
covered from the chemical bonds
formed during photosynthesis in living or once-living
matter. Sources are not just corn or soybeans, but also in-
clude peat, forest products, agricultural residues, energy
crops, animal and urban wastes and methane gas emitted
from landfills.
The fact that biofuels pollute air and degrade land may
be true, but only if improperly managed. Throughout the
U.S., there are millions of hectares of land considered un-
suitable for food crop production that could be used for
biomass crops, and with sustainable management, can be
protected from further deforestation, degradation and
soil erosion. Although the carbon dioxide emitted from
burning biofuels is nearly equal to fossil fuels, the differ-
ence is that the amount released burning biofuels is less
than the amount taken up by its growth, leading to a net


reduction.
Prices of biofuels reflect their current production, which
is relatively low. Last week ethanol retailed at $1.78 per
gallon while gasoline retailed for $1.96 per gallon. These
prices will inevitably drop as production and demand in-
creases, making biofuel even more competitive.
Because of advances in farming techniques, efficient us-
age of fertilizers and pesticides, higher yielding crops and
more energy efficient conversion techniques, the amount
of energy required to produce corn ethanol has signifi-
cantly decreased. Currently, our retail-available ethanol
is made from corn, and it provides us with an average of
1 1/2 times more energy than is needed to produce it. But
even more encouraging is the emerging technology of cel-
lulosic ethanol that has the potential to provide 10 times
more energy than is required for production.
The choice of biofuels is clearly the solution to replac-
ing our current failing energy sources.

About 5,200 pack O'Connell Center for comedians


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

At the other colleges Demetri
Martin performs at, they have ban-
ners in their basketball arenas that
read "Champions 1943."
At UF, it's a little different.
"I come here, and it's just a cal-
endar of every year ever," Martin
told the crowd of about 5,200 at the
O'Connell Center Tuesday night as
he pointed to the rafters.
Martin, who has contributed to
"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,"
currently has a show on Comedy
Central called "Important Things
with Demetri Martin."
Martin's friend Adam Lowitt, a
producer, comedian and 2002 UF
grad, opened the show.
Lowitt began his act by making
fun of the midtown bar BALLS.
"I have traveled all over the
country, and this is the only town
I've ever been to with a bar named
BALLS."
"You can type BALLS into Google
Maps, and Gainesville pops up," he
said. "Even the guys at Google are
like,'Fuck, Gainesville rules."'
He also unfurled an enlarged
copy of a menu for a Chinese restau-
rant he ate at one day. The first item
listed was Bull Penis for $5.50. He
unrolled the menu further, revealing
a large drawing of a woman with a
sprawling octopus on her groin.
"I'm not sure if I want the noo-
dles or the bull penis," he said, "as
long as it's not a woman being eaten
out by an octopus."
Martin then took the stage and

Comedian Demetri Martin points out how wet-floor signs always have a picture of a falling man during
his show at the O'Connell Center Tuesday. "He doesn't have eyes and he doesn't have feet," Martin said
of the wet-floor man. "Of course he's going to fall."


charmed the crowd with his dead-
pan one-liners, crude marker draw-
ings and musical comedy.
He also had fun with the Ameri-
can Sign Language interpreter who
was standing in front of the stage.
"How are you, sir that's do-
ing the ASL?" he asked. The inter-
preter continued signing. "I guess I
should've said, 'How am I,'" Mar-
tin joked. Later in the show, Martin


noticed the man signing the words
"fuck you" during one of his jokes
and began repeating it. The inter-
preter, cracking a smile, signed the
words each time while the crowd
erupted in laughter.
Martin said he's been watching
sports less and less lately and joked
that he wished the mascots could
play each other.
"I'd always rather see the actual


animals fighting," he said. "Like
Colts versus Bears. Wizards versus
Heat fucking awesome," he said.
"Magic versus Jazz... that's a
little too gay for me," he said.
Martin also said he's a fan of co-
conut soap. "It's really cool, unless
your hands are dirty from coco-
nuts," he said.
"I can't tell how much progress
I'm making in this situation," he


said, pretending to wash his hands.
Transitioning into the marker
drawings portion of the show, Mar-
tin flipped the page of his large
sketch pad to reveal a picture of a
crying baby with a funnel leading
from its mouth to its ears.
"Oh wait, it's going to me," he
pretended the baby would say.
"Guess I better stop crying."
Martin also questioned the safety
of strobe lights.
"Strobe lights cause seizures
in some people, but we still have
them," he said. "That's crazy."
"It's like, look, I know these
things give you seizures and make
you swallow your tongue, but these
guidos need to party."
Moving over to the piano, Martin
asked the production staff to give
him a little mood lighting. They
obliged, dimming the lights.
"I love to do virgin Jell-o shots,"
Martin said after the lights were
dimmed. "I guess what I'm saying
is, I like to eat Jell-o really fast."
"Thank god for cargo pants,"
he continued. "'Cause sometimes I
got some cargo I really wanna carry
around on my thighs."
Not wasting any time, Martin
kept the one-liners flowing while
playing the piano.
"Sleep tight, don't let the bed
bugs bite," Martin said, "is a long
way to say, 'wash your sheets, you
fucking slob.'"
"My friend's superstitious."
"Me, I'm just stitious. I got a reg-
ular amount of stish," he said.
Accent Speaker's Bureau spon-
sored Martin's speech. He was paid
$60,000 for the performance.

qualities that are pleasing to people.
Though the Krishnas represent
only a part of Hinduism, people from
all different lifestyles and religions
participate in their classes, which are
held mornings and evenings during
the week, Salim said.
"That's something that's really cool
about our society," he said. "There's
no secrecy."
There are fewer than 50 Interna-
tional Society for Krishna Conscious-
ness centers in the United States, and
two of them are in Alachua County:
the Krishna House and a temple in
Alachua, which is part of a Krishna
community that expands across 127
acres. They are the only Hindu temples
between Orlando and Jacksonville.
Some non-Krishna Hindus wor-
ship at the temples despite not iden-
tifying as Krishnas, and according to
religion department chair Vasudha
Narayanan, many Hindus do not
consider themselves part of a specific
sect.
Aside from worship, some fol-
lowers of Hinduism go to temples to
socialize, and "one can be a perfectly
good Hindu without ever going to a


temple," she said.
Diversity is a hallmark of Hindu-
ism, which recognizes hundreds of
millions of gods and goddesses.
In her book, Narayanan said that
to be Hindu is to be engaged in a sense
of pluralism and recognize the many
gods as manifestations of the supreme
being.
"There are many ways one can be
Hindu. You can follow the traditions
you feel most comfortable with," she
said.
"Some speak about meditation and
an inner journey, and others speak
about social action. Others speak
about devotion to the divine. There
are many paths by which one can
reach the supreme."
The most prevalent concept in Hin-
duism is moshka, meaning liberation
from the cycle of life and death, which
Hindus believe is repeated endlessly
until the soul achieves liberation, ac-
cording to a chapter Narayanan wrote
for "The Illustrated Guide to World
Religions."
Dharma, which encompasses duty,
truth, justic, law and righteousness, is
also a universal concept in Hinduism.
Performing arts are celebrated in
Hindu culture, and children often
learn about Hinduism by immer-


sion in traditional song and dance,
Narayanan said.
"I think that's the most important
thing you can say about Hinduism
here. In India, people learn Hinduism
by being there-absorbing, observing
and participating," she said. "Here,
you have to articulate what the reli-
gion is about."
Nikita Kathuria, an active member
of UF's Hindu Students Council, was
raised in a non-sectarian Hindu fam-
ily.
She attends a non-sectarian Hindu
temple in Orlando while she's at home,
and she and other Hindus she knows
worship at the local Krishna temples
while at UF, Kathuria said.
"I do my prayers every day and try
to go to the temple as much as I can,"
she said. "We believe in Krishna, so
the Hare Krishna temple is perfectly
fine, too."
It's not difficult to maintain her
faith at school, she said, because fol-
lowers are free to choose their own
methods of expressing and develop-
ing their spirituality without restric-
tive guidelines.
"I feel like Hinduism is a very per-
sonalized religion," she said. "You do
what you can to best understand your-
self."


Speakers stressed UF's quality


BUDGET, from page 1


er said the president often visits during
the spring legislative session.
Glover attributed the overwhelm-
ing size of the undergraduate body as a
main stress to UF's budget woes.
"We do not have a large budget for
the size of the student body," Glover
said. Each faculty position costs about
$100,000, including salary and benefits.
UF's tuition is well below the nation-
al average, he said, adding solutions
could include lowering the number of
undergraduates.
When asked about FSU's example
of hiring freezes, Glover said UF will
not be following suit.
"We don't believe the university can
afford to just stop," Glover said. "We
would lose ground and traction."
Denslow, professor and research
economist, provided insight on the
complexity of the university's current
crisis, and said quality undergraduate
education must first be defined before
it can be preserved.
While some look to SAT scores of
incoming frsehmen or graduate wages
as a reflection of quality education,
Denslow said quality starts in the class-
room.
Reducing UF's student-faculty ratio
of 22-to-1 to 20-to-1, he said, could help
students in the long run.
"My guess is that the ones in a
25-student class learn about 75 percent


more," he said.
Student Body President-elect Jordan
Johnson said student involvement is es-
sential to protect programs from being
cut, because he relays student feedback
to administrators.
When an audience member men-
tioned using part of Student Govern-
ment's $14 million budget as a possible
source for university revenue, Johnson
said it would be hypocritical for SG to
exclude itself from proposed cuts.
"Student Government is definitely
going to have to be ready to make con-
cessions," Johnson said.
Alligator editors Safker and Bjom-
sen spoke about the issues raised in let-
ters to the editor and columns featured
in the Opinions section. The newspaper
has seen firsthand how students are re-
acting, but to generate budget-cut solu-
tions, managing editor Kristin Bjomsen
said more discussion is needed.
"I don't think we're being creative
enough," she said.
While students wandered about
munching on free pizza after the event
ended, many said they stopped by just
to voice their concerns.
For Jasmine Betz, a political science
junior, the relationship between the
university and the state legislature was
reason for concern.
"It's extremely frustrating to watch
the future of our university be decided
by our state Legislature," she said."This
is going to have catastrophic, exponen-
tial repercussions."


UF also considered


replacing WebMail

W EBMAIL, from page 1

outside e-mail providers, should fix past problems, he
said.
UF is currently testing the new system and should
know when it will be launched in about a week or two,
he said.
Frazier said a big reason for allowing forwarding
again is so that students can take advantage of features
that UF's WebMail doesn't offer, such as large amounts
of storage space.
Frazier said UF also considered replacing WebMail
with another system, like Google's
UF Gmail or MSN Hotmail, but ulti-
Administration mately couldn't agree on a con-
tract with any company.
There were issues over what happens with the ac-
counts when a student graduates and how long the e-
mails are stored, among other things, he said.
At Santa Fe College, which switched to Gmail last
year but still allows e-mail forwarding, the transition has
gone smoothly, said Tim Nesler, associate vice president
for information technology services.
There is a slight concern, however, that Gmail might
start charging fees in the future, he said.

Love of the Game


Senior catcher makes most of opportunities during time in Gainesville


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

When Kristina Hilberth was in-
volved in a head-on collision during
her freshman year of high school,
she was told that she could never
play sports again.
Both cars were totaled. Her neck
and back were so severely injured
that Hilberth, who played five sports
in high school, was told that taking
the softball field, stepping back onto
the volleyball court and running
track again would be impossible.
That wasn't an option for her.
"I was determined to come
back," Hilberth said. "I was like, 'I
gotta keep playing.'"
She made the best of her situa-
tion, attending physical therapy in
an effort to return to full health and
telling herself she had to keep play-
ing.
The following summer, she was
back on the field.
Despite the accident and a few
setbacks early in her college career,
Hilberth now a senior and the
starting catcher for the UF softball
team considers herself lucky for
having the career that she's had.
"I'm just grateful for what God's
given me and the opportunities that
I've had, and I'm taking advantage
of them," she said. "I'm not going
to look back and say I should have
tried harder, I should have enjoyed it
more, I should have worked harder.
None of those things will be some-
thing I'll look back and regret."
Her coaches and teammates de-
scribe her as the ideal player, the
kind every squad must have, and
as someone who does all the little
things to improve herself and those
around her.
"It's just the spark she has for the
game," catcher Tiffany DeFelice said.
"She really loves being out here. She
loves the team. She loves what we
do here day in and day out. It's just
her love for the game and her loving
to be here that really gets her going
every single day."
Once a walk-on freshman bur-
ied at the bottom of the depth chart,
Hilberth has found success through
hard work, determination and her
ability to take full advantage of the
opportunities she has been given.

Catching a Break
When Hilberth stepped on the
field for her first fall practice at UF,
she wasn't in an enviable position:
She was fifth on the depth chart.
"Of course you don't want to
be fifth-string catcher, but at least I
wasn't no-string catcher," she said.
Hilberth, who didn't officially de-
cide to play college softball until after
her junior year of high school, took
that attitude into the fall preseason.
By December, she had worked her
way up to No. 2 behind Kristen
Butler, the Southeastern Conference
Player of the Year in 2006.
Butler took Hilberth under her
wing, teaching her the mechanics
of catching in practice, pulling her
aside after games and explaining
why she made certain calls.


Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff
UF catcher Kristina Hilberth bunts during the Gators' 4-1 win against Tennessee on March 22 at Katie
Seashole Pressly Stadium.


"Even when she wasn't playing,
she'd pick up on little things from
Kristen, and the improvement from
when she came in to after that first
year then especially after the sec-
ond year was immense," senior
pitcher Stacey Nelson said.
Mary Ratliff, who played for UF
from 2005 to 2008 and now serves
as the student coach, said Hilberth
probably worked harder than any-
one on the team at the time, looking
for ways to improve her game and
see more time in the lineup.
While Hilberth waited behind
Butler as the second-string catcher,
she found other opportunities to
work her way onto the field.
Coach Tim Walton, then in his
first year at UF, liked her as a slap
hitter, so Hilberth worked on im-
proving that aspect of her game. She
had to switch to the left side of the
plate to become a slap hitter, but she
was up to the challenge.
"When your coach has confi-
dence in your swing, that's when
you know you're going forth
to get more at-bats," Hil-
berth said. "So I knew
that since he had more confidence in
my slap, that's what I needed to get
better at."
With that in mind, Hilberth fo-
cused on getting faster, running and
jump-roping "all the time" during
the summer between her sophomore
and junior years. If she improved her
speed, she would become a more ef-
fective slap hitter, and the reward
for becoming a reliable hitter would
be more time in the field.
It may not have been the most
direct path to playing time, but it
was another example of Hilberth's
willingness to fill whatever role her
coach and the team needed.
"She's one of those people who
never really cuts comers," Ratliff
said. "She just puts her nose to the


grindstone and works hard at every-
thing she does."
Although her outstanding work
ethic has not gone unnoticed by
those around her, Hilberth's con-
sistent production as a hitter and
catcher has been relatively unher-
alded during her time at UF.

Away from the Limelight
Hilberth's favorite player for
whom she wears her No. 31 jersey
is Mike Piazza, a former MLB
catcher and a 12-time All-Star.
Piazza became Hilberth's base-
ball idol when she was 6 years old
and living in California. Hilberth
and her parents attended a Los An-
geles Dodgers game, Piazza's first at
Dodger Stadium. Fans mercilessly
booed the rookie because of the con-
troversy surrounding his draft selec-
tion and his personal connection to
then-manager Tommy Lasorda.


e game and her loving to be here that


-Tiffany DeFelice "I was like,
'Mom, why are
they booing him?'" Hilberth said.
"I felt bad for him, and I was like,
'That's my new favorite player."'
Hilberth later requested auto-
graphs from Piazza two days in a
row during spring training in Flor-
ida.
By the second day, Piazza not
only remembered her name, but
also that it was spelled with a 'K.'
"That pretty much made my life
and sealed the deal that he would
be my favorite player forever," Hil-
berth said.
Like Piazza, Hilberth has had
to deal with being underappreci-
ated throughout her career. Hilberth
doesn't play particularly glamor-


ous roles on either side of the ball.
Despite being a part of every play,
catchers are generally overlooked,
and as a slap hitter, she has yet to hit
a home run at UF.
"I think underappreciated is a
good term just because, at the end
of the day, people don't see the little
things she did all day that won us the
game," Nelson said. "It's not an ex-
aggeration when I say that she's the
one making strikeouts look good."
Even her father, Kamill, didn't
fully understand his daughter's
contribution at first. When he and
Hilberth were visiting UF for her re-
cruiting trip, he asked two questions.
As a concerned parent, he wanted to
know if his daughter would be able
to continue attending church. The
answer to that question was yes,
much to his relief.
His second question, however,
has been answered on the field.
"He said, 'No. 2, will she
ever be able to hit away righty
again?' And I was like, 'Dad,
come on.' He didn't get the small
game," Hilberth said. "Now he
does. He's like, 'Great job getting
on base.' But just like most people
say the longball is the exciting part
- and it is exciting there are dif-
ferent roles for different players on
each team."
If people hadn't already noticed
what Hilberth brought to the team,
she has shown her full potential in
every part of her game this season.

'Playmaker' and Leader
In 2007, Hilberth's teammates
granted her the nickname "Play-
maker" perhaps an unusual
nickname for a slap-hitting catcher.
However, she had established her-
self as someone who could step up
and come through when the team
needed her, whether with a conven-
tional play or not.


"All the good teams have a play-
er like that who doesn't get caught
up in themselves," Walton said.
"That's a true definition of her char-
acter and personality somebody
who always flies underneath the ra-
dar, but by the time she's gone, you
really say, 'Wow, I really appreciate
the job that she's done."'
This season, Hilberth has already
turned heads with her offensive
production, batting .381 through
45 games and driving in more runs
during UF's first 30 games than she
did in the entire 2008 season.
In addition to making plays at
the plate and behind it, Hilberth has
also stepped up as a leader for her
team.
She began to learn how to func-
tion as a leader during her fresh-
man season, when she saw her older
teammates approach players the
right and wrong ways.
"Identifying how every one of
my teammates responds to different
encouragement and different lead-
ership is one of the biggest parts of
becoming a leader on this team. You
can't use the same thing for all the
players on the team," Hilberth said.
"We don't need a rah-rah type
leader. We just need someone to
make sure we're still on that right
path."
Hilberth's teammates praise her
leadership, noting her ability to cor-
rect their mistakes on the field with-
out being condescending and her
willingness to help them with off-
the-field problems, including any-
thing from injuries to homework.
Left fielder Francesca Enea has
benefited from Hilberth's guidance
and friendship. When Enea's ACL
was torn in the middle of the 2007
season, Hilberth was constantly
checking in on her teammate's
health.
"She was always like, 'How are
your knees?' And I was like, 'I'm
fine, I'm not the one catching. How
are your knees?'" Enea said. "She al-
ways wants to make sure everyone
on the team is doing good and feel-
ing good."
With the end of her career at UF
quickly approaching, Hilberth said
she is trying to appreciate every-
thing around her the time spent
with her teammates, the bullpen
sessions with Nelson, the things she
has already accomplished and the
opportunities she has been given.
"I'm just really grateful that I
have that view I have right now to
take a step back and look at what I
have right now and not take it for
granted," Hilberth said.
"Because there is nobody who
was the starting catcher for the first
Super Regional besides me at the
University of Florida. There's no-
body besides me who was the start-
ing catcher for our first World Series
game. Those things mean more to
me than anything else as far as our
accomplishments."
If Hilberth and her team accom-
plish the goals they set at the begin-
ning of this season, she will be able
to add one more first to her list: the
starting catcher on UF's first national
champion softball team.

UF BASEBALL

Larson makes most of short start

By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcal Ilovi@a Illigator.org

TALLAHASSEE Greg Larson got the nod to
start over Justin Poovey and Patrick Keating, and
he proved he deserved it.
In his 4 1/3 innings of work, Larson gave up just
one hit and no runs to offensive powerhouse FSU
on Tuesday night.
The UF offense gave him and the bullpen plenty
of support with 5 runs in the first inning, leading
the Gators (24-12) to a 10-2 win against the Semi-
noles (21-12) at Dick Howser Stadium and claiming
the series 2-1 for UF.
"It's not too difficult to pitch with a 5-run lead
in the first," Larson said. "I just tried not to do too
much and just stay within myself."
Larson's quality outing Tuesday night was his
first start of the season.
The freshman's first 15 appearances came in re-
lief, and two of them were in the first two match-
ups against FSU, when he gave up no runs in 2 1/3
innings.
He carried the lessons he learned in those out-
ings into his start Tuesday.
"I threw against most of the guys before, so I
kind of knew what their strengths and weaknesses
were," Larson said.
Tony Davis and Billy Bullock finished off what
Larson started on the mound. Their only hitch came
in the seventh inning, when Davis allowed a triple
off the wall by Mike McGee followed by a homer to
right-center field by Tommy Oravetz.
The relievers combined to allow just 2 runs and
five hits in their 4 2/3 innings. Bullock punched out
four hitters in two innings.
The two reliable bullpen arms for UF were well-
rested for the rivalry game, having only made two
appearances each in the previous five games. Photo courtesy of Reid Compton/ The FSView

Seniors fuel win against Seminoles


* TEDDY FOSTER HOMERED
WEARING THE WRONG JERSEY.

By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

TALLAHASSEE If being a senior
leader means sacrificing yourself for the
team, hitting a home run and remember-
ing to bring your jersey on road trips,
then Teddy Foster wasn't just 2 for 3 in
the batter's box on Tuesday.
Donning No. 47 instead of his regular


EThe Web site ProFootballTalk.com has con-
firmed the initial report from NFLDraftBible.com
that former UF wide receiver Percy Harvin failed a
drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine. ProFoot-
ballTalk still predicts Harvin will be selected late in
the first round of the NFL Draft on April 25.


No. 50 jersey, Foster helped UF to a 10-2
defeat of FSU in his class's final regular-
season meeting with the Seminoles.
"I actually left my
jersey in the locker
room, and about 15
to 20 minutes into the
bus ride, I realized I
didn't have it," Foster
said. "I told some of
Foster the staff and they said
they had some extras,
so I'm wearing an old teammate's from
last year (Brett Bentley)."

Rays


went 2 for 3 with a home run, a sacrifice
fly and three RBIs, providing a spark
from the No. 8 spot in the batting order.
Freshmen Daniel Pigott and Preston
Tucker have become mainstays in the
top half of the lineup, but the bottom half
hasn't been so concrete.
Foster, who has now logged 32 at-bats
on the season, said it can be difficult to
contribute and lead as a veteran when
playing time isn't always there.
But Tuesday, he made the best of his
chance to help UF win the season series

evokes mixed

On one hand, everything about
the Orange and Blue Game is a fun
experience for fans who haven't seen
their Gators play football in more than
three months.
On the other hand, it's a useless
waste of time.
On one hand, it's a great opportuni-
ty the last opportunity for seniors
to watch some
football in The
Swamp.
On the other
hand, what takes

Evan Drexler day can barely be
The Drex Factor classified as foot-

On one hand,
Tim Tebow will be airing out bombs
and Brandon Spikes will be making
running backs pay.
On the other hand, they'll be do-
ing what they do best against players
wearing the same uniform, they won't
be trying their hardest while they're at
it and most of the incoming freshmen
won't be in town.
There are plenty of other UF sports
to watch this weekend. The Gators
baseball team has a three-game series at
home against Mississippi, a team with
an identical 9-6 record in the Southeast-
ern Conference. The No. 1 UF softball
team plays three games in Baton Rouge,
La., against No. 19 LSU, and both games
of the Saturday doubleheader will be
televised on Cox Sports. There's even
some UF club lacrosse this weekend, as
the No. 13 Gators men face No. 5 FSU
on Friday night.
How often do you get to see com-
petitive lacrosse on campus?
Yet all of those sports all of which
have real meaning toward regular-sea-
son records won't combine to draw
anything close to the number of people
that will head into Ben Hill Griffin Sta-
dium on Saturday.
Football is king in Gainesville, and
the Gators' spring practices regularly

Nelson earns invite to USA Team Selection Camp


* SHE WILL LEAD UF AGAINST CEN-
TRAL FLORIDA AT HOME TONIGHT.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

This summer, Stacey Nelson could be
trading in her orange and blue for red,
white and blue.
UF's senior ace accepted an invita-
tion to the 2009 USA Softball Women's
National Team Selection Camp in Chula
Vista, Calif., starting June 8.
Nelson will compete against 26 other
players for a spot on the USA Softball
National Team at the camp, which starts
just five days after the Women's College
World Series.
"It's something I never, ever would
have expected, so it's a big surprise. I was
very excited about it," Nelson said.
Remaining as modest as ever about her
continually growing list of accomplish-
ments, Nelson said she is still keeping
her focus on her last season as a Gator,
including tonight's matchup between No.
1 UF (42-3) and Central Florida (21-22) at
6 in Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
The invitation to play with the nation's
best is far from the only notable accolade
Nelson has racked up this season.
She is now climbing the ranks for the
most victories in NCAA history. With 120
wins, she is currently tied for ninth with
three other pitchers.
"I don't even know how many wins I
have," she said, laughing. "When I first
got on the list, No. 25 was Jennie Finch.
That was just surreal to me because
Jennie Finch is like the ultimate to hear


that I had as many wins as her."
Nelson, the Southeastern Conference
Pitcher of the Year last season, is three
victories away from tying Angela Tinch-
er, last season's Player of the Year from
Virginia Tech.
Tincher also won the Lowe's Senior
CLASS Award in 2008, and Nelson was
named one of 10 finalists for this year's
award.
The CLASS Award, which stands for
Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement
for Staying in School, is given to players
based on their off-the-field accomplish-
ments as well as their performance on it.
Although Nelson is known for her
work in the circle, she takes just as much
pride in being recognized for what she
does in the community and in the class-
room.
"People kind of think of athletes as just
athletes, and to show that you're working
hard in the classroom and doing other
stuff in the community, it's cool to get
recognized for that," she said.
The winner of the CLASS Award is de-
cided by a combination of coaches, media,
sponsors and fan voting.
Nelson, who learned to speak Swahili
and Yoruba during her time at UF, has
been named to the SEC Academic Honor
Roll for two straight years.
"All my teammates make fun of me -
especially the ones in the back of the bus
- because I'm always doing homework
on the way to games. If I'm not doing
homework, then I'm reading about some-
thing," Nelson said.
"I really feel like the more homework
I do in a weekend, the better I do (on the
field)."

Gators continue hot offensive streak against powerhouse Seminoles


BASE, from page 18


for us this weekend, so they should have
been fresh, and we were going to stretch
them to two or three innings apiece," UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan said.
"That was the plan going in. I hate to
say that it worked out exactly how we
wanted to, but that's pretty much the way


it went."
While the Seminoles offense entered
with a reputation as a high-scoring unit,
the Gators' bats were on display.
The Gators jumped on top with 5 runs
in the first inning, three coming off the bat
of Avery Barnes, who sent a shot over the
right-field fence and finished 4-for-5 hit-
ting with three RBIs and 2 runs.
UF drove in its other 5 runs over the


fifth, sixth and seventh innings.
The scoring was highlighted by 2-run
homers by Josh Adams and Teddy Fos-
ter, who accidentally
left his No. 50 jersey in
Gainesville and wore No.
Baseball 47 instead.
The double-digit scor-
ing night was just the lat-
est in a recent trend for the once-stagnant


Gators offense.
They have plated at least 10 runners in
four of their last six games, including a 24-
run performance on Saturday at Auburn,
and are hitting .341 as a team in that span
- compared to the season total of .301.
"I feel really good about our lineup,
and it's not just the guys at the top, but we
are getting contribution from everybody,
top to bottom," O'Sullivan said.


Foster, Barnes, McArthur shine in final regular-season win over FSU


SENIORS, from page 18

with FSU 2-1.
"It's a lot easier to lead the team
on nights like tonight when you
can lead by example," he said.
Foster wasn't the only senior
leading by example in his final
showdown with the Seminoles.


Left fielder Avery Barnes went
4 for 5 and added his second home
run in the last four games with a
3-run job over the right-field wall
in the first inning.
Barnes conceded that the series-
clinching win probably meant a
little bit more to the seniors who
will likely never suit up against
FSU again.


"I feel extremely fortunate
to have a game like I did."
Avery Barnes
UF senior left fielder

"I feel extremely fortunate to
have a game like I did," he said. "If
it is the last time, I have something
to remember forever."


The only other senior position
player on UF's roster is Brandon
McArthur, who has played in 13
games against the Seminoles in
his six-year career. He turned in
a 1-for-4 effort and scored 2 runs
before being replaced by freshman
Jerico Weitzel in the eighth inning.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said
he didn't make a conscious deci-


sion to start his three senior hitters
in their last chance to play in Dick
Howser Stadium.
"Teddy's been swinging the bat
really well for us he had a good
weekend against Auburn and B-
Mac has played a good third base
for us," he said. "We're going to
put the lineup out there that gives
us the best chance to win."


EVAN, from page 18


bring in hundreds of fans looking for a glimpse of their
favorite wide receiver.
On Saturday, they'll get more than just a glimpse. Fans
will get to see many of next season's starters and take a
peek at who could sneak into the rotation in September.
The roster for the fall has been mostly decided already,
but with a slew of injuries to players who will start, you'll


get to watch players who wouldn't normally see this much
playing time get a significant slice of the pie.
Running back Emmanuel Moody, who barely saw any
carries last season unless the game was out of reach, is
expected to play prominently in the Orange and Blue
Game.
Walk-on running back Christopher Scott, who has
been the story of spring practice, will enjoy some time in
the limelight during the annual scrimmage.
Redshirt freshman Sam Robey, whose injured left knee


kept him out of action last season, will likely be a starting
center in the game. He might even make the cut during
the fall.
And, of course, there's the pageantry that comes with
gameday in Gainesville. The stadium will be rocking, the
cars will line the streets and the tailgaters will come out
in force.
So while there may not be much at the Orange and Blue
Game in terms of important plays, real pressure situations
or full-out effort from starters, it's still worth attending.

UF GYMNASTICS

Summer to provide rest for team


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

Maybe it's fitting that the NCAA
Championships essentially signal the
arrival of summer for the UF gym-
nastics team, much like exam week
in the spring is the sign of summer
for students.
The UF gymnasts will still have
to deal with finals, but the NCAA
Championships starting Thursday
cap off a semester-long season full of
wear and tear.
"We know this is our last week of
training, our last competition," Ma-
randa Smith said.
"Summer's here. We have to set
goals for our training and already
start thinking about next year after
this meet is over."
This summer, Smith is looking
forward to getting shoulder surgery
a week after her return from the na-
tional championship meet.
She said the rehab would take her
four to six months, ending around
the same time the fall semester does.
Smith said she welcomes the thought
of being fully healthy again, even if
it means spending the summer heal-
ing.
"I love competing and doing gym-
nastics all the time, but sometimes it
gets tough when you're hurting,"
Smith said.


Smith hopes the summer rehab
will leave her healthy and in-shape
enough to "jump back again and be
pretty much right where I left off
from this year," she said.

"It's the end of gym for a
while, so it's going to be
good for a lot of the gym-
nasts and myself to rest
physically and mentally from
the sport."
Courtney Gladys
UF junior gymnast


This year saw Smith turn in her
best statistical season thus far, in-
cluding appearances on balance
beam while filling in for injured
teammates.
For Courtney Gladys, the end of
the NCAA Championships will bring
a sigh of relief.
"It's the end of gym for a while, so
it's going to be good for a lot of the
gymnasts and myself to rest physi-
cally and mentally from the sport,"
Gladys said.
Gladys, like Smith, had to increase
her workload when teammates the
count is now at four had their sea-
sons cut short due to injuries.
Gladys said she takes two to three
weeks after the NCAA Champion-
ships to rest.


She'll be in Gainesville for the
first part of summer and still plans
to condition and practice, but at a
much easier pace than when fall rolls
around.
"The three months you're off,
yeah, you could take it off, but is
it really going to benefit you when
you're pounding in August again?"
Gladys said.
There's no rest for the weary, as
UF coach Rhonda Faehn has a ban-
quet, a coaches' meeting and recruit-
ing on her to-do list following the
NCAA Championships.
"There's a little bit of down time,"
Faehn said, even though she won't
really get time off until mid-August.
"It's weird to say this: (The cham-
pionship) re-energizes us, the coach-
ing staff, to already be thinking ahead
and getting excited for next season."
She mentioned how the team
starts planning routines, discussing
new skills, managing lineups and
events at the team's banquet before
summer has even started.
"We don't come and go, 'It's time
to chill and relax and rest,'" Faehn
said.
FAEHN HEADING TO FAMILIAR TER-
RITORY: The NCAA Championships
are being held on Nebraska's cam-
pus in Lincoln. Faehn was an as-
sistant coach with the Cornhuskers
from 1999-2002.
