UF FOOTBALL


Brantley shines in scrimmage

By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

While Tim Tebow and most of the other
UF starters spent Saturday's Orange and Blue
Game on the sidelines, John Brantley gave
Gators fans a glimpse of the future.
Brantley threw for 265 yards and three
touchdowns and led the Orange squad to a 31-
21 victory.
"It's really clicked for me that I can do this,"
Brantley said. "Once Tebow leaves, and if I'm
fortunate enough to get the starting job, I can
run the show."
Tebow was 7-for-9 passing for 83 yards and
a touchdown for Blue in the first half, but he
was replaced by Brantley, who quarterbacked
both teams in the second.
A spring-game-record crowd of 65,000 came
alive when Brantley opened the second half
with a 50-yard touchdown pass to wide receiv-
er Frankie Hammond Jr.
Hammond finished the game with 131 re-
ceiving yards and two touchdowns on just four
catches.
The 6-foot-3, 217-pound Brantley made
flashy plays with his arm, but it was his legs
that caught teammates and coaches off guard.
The sophomore rushed for 45 yards on nine
carries, including a 15-yard touchdown run
with 15 seconds left in the first half.
"He's not a running quarterback, but he can
make plays," Tebow said.
Meyer compared Brantley's style of play to
former Utah quarterback Alex Smith. Andrew Stanfill/Alligator Staff

Goths defeat Barbies in derby match


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@gmail.com


Broken bones and bruised flesh are as
run-of-the-mill for the Roller Rebels as for
the defensive line on a football team, but
forget cleats and jerseys these girls wear
fuchsia fishnets and feather boas.
The Gainesville Roller Rebels played
their first home match of the season at Skate
Station Sunday along with the Greater Jack-
sonville Roller Derby.
The two crews divided into the Bar-
bies and the Goths, with members from
Gainesville and Jacksonville on both teams.


"I mean, it's girls
kicking each other's asses.
What's not to like?"
Damien Raulerson
Roller derby fan

About 30 women make up the Roller
Rebels, and President Catherine Seemann,
whose derby name is Ms. Rebel, said the
derby girls range in age from early twenties
to mid-forties.
"We have stay-at-home moms, profes-
sionals, students, teachers," said Seemann,
31. "You can't pigeon-hole these girls."


The match, which lasted an hour, consist-
ed of short "jams" where jammers plowed
their way through blockers to get in the lead.
When a team's jammer reached the head
of the pack, the jammer's team received a
point.
Blockers fended off jammers using their
mid-sections to bump them out of the way.
Despite sticker-covered helmets and
heavy padding, volunteer paramedics en-
tered the rink three times during the match
to assist fallen derby girls, but no one was
seriously injured.
About 400 fans watched from the "sui-
cide section" denoted by signs that read,

suspect

* TWO WOMEN WERE
ROBBED AT GUNPOINT.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

Police are still searching for a
man who robbed two women with
a gun in a hotel parking lot Satur-
day night.
At about 11:30 p.m., a man
walked up to the women, who were
getting out of their car to go into
the Hilton Hotel and Conference
Center on Southwest 34th Street.
The man pointed a semiauto-
matic handgun at the
Local women and demand-
News ed that they give him
their purses, a Uni-
versity of Florida Police release
stated.
According to the release, when
the women gave him their purses,
the man ran toward Southwest Ar-
cher Road.
A UPD police dog followed
the man as far as the Doyle Con-
ner Building, 1911 S.W. 34th St.,
but couldn't catch him, the release
stated.
The suspect is described as a
black man, 18 to 20 years old, about
6'2" and between 150 and 160
pounds.
He was wearing a black, hooded
sweatshirt, black shorts and large
loose-fitting shoes with the shoe-
laces untied.
He was carrying a dark semiau-
tomatic handgun that had scratches
on the barrel.
Anyone who has information
about this incident is asked to call

Driver charged in Texas crash that killed 5 kids


HOUSTON (AP)


Police filed intoxica-


tion manslaughter charges Sunday against a
driver who lost control of his car while using
a cell phone, plunging the vehicle into a rain-
filled ditch and killing five children inside.
Chanton Jenkins, 32, was in police cus-
tody facing four counts of intoxication man-
slaughter, one charge for each of the chil-
dren found dead so far, said Houston police
spokesman Kese Smith. Police said a relative
told them Jenkins was the father of three of


the victims.
Jenkins failed a field sobriety test fol-
lowing Saturday's crash, which occurred
after heavy rain turned the ditch into a tor-
rent. The results of a blood alcohol test were
pending, Smith said. It was unclear if Jenkins
had an attorney.
The search was continuing for the miss-
ing victim, a 3-year-old girl. A dive team
searched a bayou for the child Sunday after-
noon, Smith said.

ON CAMPUS
Guy Harvey visits campus
Guy Harvey, world-re-
nowned marine life artist and
water conservationist, will go to
any depth for his inspiration.
"I'm fiercely devoted to the
sea," Harvey said at the Uni-
versity Auditorium on Friday
as he spoke on marine life is-
sues, such as overfishing and
the declining shark population.
Harvey, a former marine
biology college professor, told
the audience of about 130 dur-
ing his 50-minute talk that
"shark-finning," or the removal
of shark fins for an Asian soup
delicacy known as "Shark Fin
Soup," has become a huge is-
sue.
"The demise of sharks is a
problem that's going to affect
the rest of the ocean," Harvey
said, adding it is "very hard to
ask people whose culture eats
these animals to stop."
As for overfishing, Harvey
said there should be a morato-
rium on fishing certain species
for at least four or five years to
fight ocean depletion. He told
the audience his restaurant
chain does not serve grouper,
adding other restaurants often
use mystery fish as a substitu-
tion.
Harvey went on to discuss
the Guy Harvey Ocean Foun-
dation, which gives money to
nonprofit organizations that do

research and create educational
programs about ocean conserva-
tion.
"It takes cash to care," Harvey
said, noting a percentage of his
merchandise sales go toward the
foundation and his research in-
stitute in Fort Lauderdale.
Harvey also made an appear-
ance at Florida Bookstore on
Saturday, where fans of all ages
lined up for nearly two hours to
get his signature on shirts, hats
and posters.
"I like his take on conserva-
tion," said Nina Gubin, a UF
microbiology junior, who got
her ticket from Friday's speech
signed. "His art is realistic and
unique."
Harvey, who grew up in Ja-
maica and has been impacted by
the ocean since childhood, said in
a phone interview he appreciated
the following.
"I try to be authentic as possi-
ble," Harvey said of his artwork,
adding he wasn't sure just what
about his art enticed people. "I
know a lot about the physiology
and ecology of the animals. Fish-
ermen appreciate that. "
Harvey said his design for
the 2008 National Championship
commemorative shirt for the
Gators was done months before
the team took home a victory.
"We can hopefully do it again
next year," Harvey said, adding
he would attend the Orange and
Blue game, his first college foot-
ball game, on Saturday.

the derby bout
DERBY, from page 1
"Sit here at your own risk. You may end
up with a derby girl on your lap and
not in a fun way" and cheered raucous-
ly each time the girls breezed by as they
orbited the rink.
Some supported the Barbies, holding
bright pink signs with phrases like "Ful-
filling your fantasies since the 1930s," and
some supported the Goths, with phrases
like "Goths do it best in the
Local dark."
News The audience gaped as
the Barbies and Goths pum-
meled into each other, their sparkling eye-
liner glinting in the strobe lights as they
glided around the rink, often crashing to
the ground before springing back to their
feet and scrambling to catch up to the rest
of the team.
The Goths won the bout with 146 points
to the Barbies' 97.
Seemann, who said the Roller Rebels
practice about five hours a week in addi-
tion to individual conditioning, said it's
not about winning or losing.
"As long as we're improving," she said,
"that's all that matters."
Damien Raulerson, 32, said football is
usually the only sport he watches, but he
loves seeing the roller derby matches.

Bob Graham touches on


Gator past, budget cuts


* THE FORMER U.S. SENATOR AND
STATE GOVERNOR IS A UF GRAD.

By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

Bob Graham may have been the governor
of Florida and a U.S. Senator, but he was a
Florida Gator first.
"My first encounter with the Gators oc-
curred exactly 46 days after I was bor," he
said Friday afternoon to a crowd of about 25
in Pugh Hall.
Graham said his older half-brother, Phil,
who was attending UF, gave him a stuffed
cloth alligator for Christmas.
Graham's talk was part of the Samuel
Proctor Lecture Series, a program that brings
speakers to UF to talk about the university and
the state's history.
He spoke on UF's history from the 1930s to
the 1950s, adding personal family anecdotes to
entertain the crowd.
His brother Phil, who attended UF in 1932,
pledged as a member of the Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon Fraternity.
Graham said his father took a spontane-
ous trip to Gainesville and stopped by the
SAE House to see his son. But upon arrival,
he found his son Phil passed out drunk in the
bushes.
"That started a nine-month sabbatical for
my brother from the University of Florida,"


Graham said, adding Phil was put to work de-
livering milk at 3 a.m. every day during that
time.
"He came back and was a serious student,"
he said. "He graduated on time with his class
and went to Harvard law school."
By the late 1940s, Graham said, UF had
enrolled 19,000 students and become a co-ed
institution.
At this time, another older brother had re-
turned from the Second World
On War with intentions to attend
Campus Michigan State University.
But his father decided his son
should attend school in the state
where he grew up.
Graham said he took the same advice and
attributed his political career to the friendships
and connections he made while at UF.
Graham said the 1950s was a wonderful
time for the state of Florida as it transformed
its traditional image as a poor, marginalized
state.
He attributed the development of air condi-
tioning, mosquito control, retirement pension
and commercial jets as agents that fundamen-
tally changed Florida.
During this time, Graham met his wife,
Adele.
It was the fall of 1956, when Graham was a
UF sophomore, and he was leaving a meeting
in Tigert Hall.
"As I was leaving, I walked down the
steps, and there was a stunningly beautiful


Sen. Bob Graham talks about his new book, "America, the Owner's Manual: Making
Government Work for You," in the first of two speeches he gave in the Pugh Hall Ocora
on Friday.


brunette coming up the steps," he said, add-
ing he found out she was looking for a tutor to
help her with a class.
"As a southern gentleman, I wanted to alert
her I had taken it the year before and would
be willing to be her tutor," he said. "She took
my offer and has now been tutoring me for 52
years."
Graham said the nation and state are in a
period of economic crisis and should follow
President Barack Obama's lead by doing what
needs to be done to get through the crisis and
to come out with a different economy.


He said Florida needs to offer more effi-
cient, affordable health care, become less de-
pendent on foreign oil and put more emphasis
on education. He also said Florida needs to
make a commitment to higher education so it
can attain an intellectual economy.
At the end of his speech, Graham said he is
concerned about UF's future.
"The Legislature is now debating if they are
going to cut the budget $20 million or $70 mil-
lion," he said. "President Machen announced
yesterday what it would be if they cut it $70
million, and it is draconian."

STUDENT LIFE

Growl begins

By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Gator Growl may be six months away, but
preparation for the largest student-run pep
rally in the world has already begun.
The early start stems from current produc-
er Matt Sloan's desire to create a show that
caters to both students and alumni.
"I want the 35-year-old Gator alum that
has two kids to be as comfortable as the col-
lege freshman that sees this as their Friday-
night activity," Sloan said.
In the past, he said, the event's production
team received feedback about the show after
it was over, but this year they want to get
opinions beforehand.
For the next two weeks, students will have
the opportunity to submit suggestions related
to the show and the acts they would most like
to see by e-mailing talent@gatorgrowl.org.
The production team will use the sugge-
sions to help them create a student survey
to help determine which acts the production
team books. The survey will be ready in about
a month.
"The student responses are weighted very
highly because, when push comes to shove,


preparation

this is Gator football pep rally," Sloan said.
Sloan said the acts should be chosen by
the middle of the summer A term and will
include recognizable household names in-
tended to bring Gator Growl attendees' ex-
citement to a whole new level.
"We are under the assumption ... that this
is the biggest year that Gator Growl has ever
seen," Sloan said, attribut-
ing the the pep rally's im-
portance it's celebration of
UF's national champion-
ship-winning athletes.
The event's role in ener-
gizing fans for the home-
coming game is more im-
Sloan portant than the talent acts
chosen, he said.
"Our show, it's really a pulse on the cam-
pus, a pulse on the football team," Sloan
said.
Gator Growl tickets will go on sale today
to coincide with the first day of the student
football ticket lottery.
Student tickets are priced at $15, with
general tickets being sold for $25. Sloan said
ticket prices could increase, depending on the
chosen acts.


Powder puff event


raises $300K for kids


At 15 years old, Tim Tebow
found his passion for something
greater than sports at Uncle Dick's
Home, an orphanage for young
children in the Philippines.
"After spending time with those
kids, from that point on I knew my
ultimate goal in life wasn't about
how many touchdowns I could
score, whether I could make a lot of
money or become famous it was
about taking all my blessings and
trying to help these kids," Tebow
said.
He brought his mission to David
Sinopoli, a UF alumnus, and for-
mer Student Body President Ryan
Moseley, and the three thought of a
powder puff tournament.
In 2008, the birth of Student


Government's First and 15 pow-
der puff tournament raised $10,000
for children in Gainesville and
Uncle Dick's Home. This year, the
event raised more than
On $300,000.
Campus The tournament
took place Friday on
Flavet Field. The win-
ners faced off in Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium before the Orange and
Blue Game, where Zeta Tau Alpha
Sorority was crowned the cham-
pion.
"I knew it would end up grow-

Editorial

Ten Years Later

Gun control hasn't

improved after Columbine

One decade ago today, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold chal-
lenged the idyllic ideology of Americana, awakening a gen-
eration caught sleepwalking through the throes of life.
As the pair descended upon Columbine High School, armed with
assault rifles and propane-tank bombs, the scene was set in which ev-
ery parent's worst nightmare would come to fruition. Thirteen deaths
later, along with the suicide of the two gunmen, viewers across the
nation religiously followed coverage offered in real-time by CNN -
even grieving "alongside" the friends and family of the victims. But,
like with any modem massacre, the media fell guilty to a gross fas-
cination with the killers, deeply curious and inquisitive, wondering
how two young teens could engage in such horrific behavior.
With the masses crying for 'round-the-clock updates and schools
around the country questioning their own safety, the media worked
feverishly to meet the public's insatiable demands. Peppering wide-
eyed Americans with a bombardment of sounds and images, much
of the media overload would prove to be inaccurate by new informa-
tion reported in USA Today mere days ago. Back in '99, the media
wrongfully framed Harris and Klebold as members of the "Trench-
coat Mafia," who in reality cut an image of normalcy in spite of previ-
ous reports.
In the wake of the massacre, students and teachers were sent
into a frenzied fear looking over their shoulders for anyone and
everyone bearing any resemblance to the portrait of the two killers
that was mistakenly painted by commentators and talking heads. As
recent data revealed by the FBI dismissed the notion of a "loner" or
"bully" profile for the two Columbine gunmen, the question must
be raised asking what the federal government has done to prevent
future school shootings over the course of the last 10 years. For the
Editorial Board, a snap reaction to such an inquiry would a response
of "nothing."
With incidents such as Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois and Bing-
hamton (though outside the traditional classroom), an unspoken
sense of fear exists in America questioning the safety of college and
high school campuses across the country. The obvious answer to
remedy the threat of future violence in the classroom would stem
from the passage of federal legislation banning assault weapons a
solution currently being skirted by the Obama administration.
According to an article in Newsweek, economic reform and uni-
versal health care have taken precedent over restricting guns leav-
ing $2 billion in stimulus package money for increased law enforce-
ment to serve as but a small step in the right direction.
Additionally, the fear of a strongly mounted lobbying effort by
the National Rifle Association has worked to deter efforts by staunch
administration proponents of a weapon ban, such as Attorney Gen-
eral Eric Holder and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. An
extremely sensitive topic over the course of the first 100 days of Presi-
dent Barack Obama's term, the issue of banning assault weapons ex-
tends beyond schools and even international borders.
With a brutal drug war in Mexico currently claiming the lives of
innumerable cartel members and innocents, a degree of culpability
can be placed on the accessibility of guns across America. Acquiring
an assault rifle in Mexico is as simple as having the necessary funds
to pay one of the many smugglers bringing the guns across the bor-
der from America.
As bloodshed continues to stain the streets of locales such as Juar-
ez and Tijuana, we wonder how long "politics as usual" will continue
to trump our country's sense of moral accountability.
The 10-year journey from high-school teenager to 20-something
knocking on the door of adulthood marks a decade of incredible
change. For the 13 victims whose lives were cut far too short, dreams
of college, companionship and family disappeared in the matter of
an instant at the hands of two clinically sick individuals. Today and
every April 20, we must solemnly reflect on the passing of the young
men and women from Columbine High School and gain a deeper ap-
preciation for the countless blessings present in our own lives.

Column

Journalism will overcome culture change


I have a story to tell.
Late November in 2008 a gentleman by the name
of Ray Sansom was elected speaker of the Florida
House of Representatives. Sansom, who represents the
4th District, a stone's throw from my hometown in the
Florida Panhandle, was indicted last Friday by a grand
jury for professional misconduct. Also indicted was Dr.
Bob Richburg, the president of Northwest Florida State
College, which wouldn't you know it happens to
also be located in the 4th District.
Representative Sansom is no longer speaker of the
House. He resigned from that position after only a
month on the job when allegations arose that he had
funneled more than $35 million of state money to NFSC.
On the day he was sworn in as the speaker, he was also
officially hired by NFSC as a vice president of develop-
ment, a position with a $110,000 salary.
The indictment purported that Sansom's college sal-
ary was paid for by some of the $35 million he steered
toward the campus at Niceville, Fla. How convenient!
In a time when all Florida colleges and universities,
including UF, are having hard times making ends meet,
NFSC was doing quite well.
Now, I tell that story to explain a much larger prob-
lem that's growing every day: The death of newspa-
pers.
See, newspapers aren't doing so hot these days. The
seemingly free information age has stolen advertising
revenue at the hefty expense of newspapers. Who wants
to advertise in the classifieds when there's Craigslist
and eBay? The problem with relying on simply CNN
or Fox News is that they don't have investigative jour-
nalists who will uncover potential misuse of power and
other "professional misconduct" at the local level.


Sure, small newspapers may
never have the capability or staff
to launch exhaustive investiga-
tions into the cases of corrup-
tion, abuse of power and soci-
ety's other marginalized stories,
Matthew Christ but more and more regional pa-
letters@alligator.0org pers lack the resources to do so
as well. Even when newspapers
do launch investigations, the
outcomes don't catch a local community's interest on
the scale that a national scandal does.
We're becoming a society that's focusing more and
more on the nation at large and less on the commu-
nity we immediately inhabit. The information age has
shrunk the world, has even made it flat, as veteran New
York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman has argued,
but by shrinking a large part of town and even state
culture, much has been lost.
There is local news. I know it's hard to accept that
fact when cable news channels endlessly drone on
about Phil Spector, but there really is local news that
affects every person's life. There are other Sansoms and
Dr. Richburgs in Florida. Anyone who has grown up in
a small Florida town most likely knows of a shady de-
veloper or two, and corrupt city council members and
county commissioners do exist.
Of course the journalism industry will evolve. No
one will allow credible local newsgatherers to simply
disappear, but who will watch the Sansoms of the world
in the meantime?
CNN and Fox News certainly aren't.

umn appears on Mondays.

Letters to the Editor
Stimulus could fix budget woes
Bernie Machen is running the
University of Florida into the
ground.
Why undertake such radical bud-
get cuts and restructuring instead of
using federal stimulus funds to cov-
er the shortfall? Rather, he intends
to use the stimulus money to pay
for his changes. It is not wise to take
such drastic action until absolutely
necessary. Like the stimulus funds,
this recession will hopefully be tem-
porary.
But there again, Machen is not
the only problem. If UF is struggling,
why does the Board of Trustees con-
tinue to pay the exorbitant salary,
and why did the trustees award


him hefty performance bonuses last
year, even in tough economic times
then? Because Machen is doing ex-
actly what the Board of Trustees
hired him to do: Restructure UF to
a corporate model more concerned
about UF's bottom line than the
quality of education it provides for
its students.
But we can take this one step
further: The trustees would not be
worrying about UF's bottom line if
the Legislature better funded higher
education. Florida ranks last in the
U.S. in per capita spending on high-
er education. Funding higher educa-
tion will be the quickest way out of
this recession.
Everyone, please write your leg-


islators and governor and tell them
to save higher education in Florida.

SG overlooked existing service
Providing a quality tutoring ser-
vice to all the students at UF is im-
portant, and I don't think anyone
would disagree that it is a great idea
for Student Government to promote
tutoring; however, SG is supporting
the wrong establishment.
UF has its very own tutoring
service: the Broward Tutoring Cen-
ter (BTC). Students are able to go
to www.teachingcenter.ufl.edu and


view who is tutoring what subjects
and at what time slot they would be
available. The BTC offers walk-in
hours, private appointments, prac-
tice tests, exam reviews and discus-
sion sessions for all lower level math,
science and English classes.
Although most tutoring that
concerns students is for lower level
classes, BTC also offers tutors for
a large portion of upper division
classes. The best attribute of BTC is
that it is completely free for all UF
students.
Ethan Fieldman, one of Tutoring
Zone's owners, said, "This way tu-
toring becomes much more afford-
able," in reference to the new Fa-
cebook application where students


can check times and prices at which
tutoring is provided.
What is more affordable: free tu-
toring or an app that shows you tu-
toring costs? Even though BTC pro-
vides the same quality of tutoring
as Tutoring Zone, Tutor Train, etc.,
they do not get the publicity they
deserve. I don't think that students
enjoy paying for a question packet
when they can get the same material
for free at BTC, so I can only assume
that they are not well-informed.
SG should be teaming up with its
own associated tutoring service that
is free to its students, instead of pro-
moting expensive outside services.

SPECIAL REPORT

Local Buddhists share culture, practices of religion


Editor's Note: This is the third
of a three-part series profiling
Gainesville's diverse religious
community.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

With his back straight, head
tilted slightly and hands in "bear
paw position," with the thumb be-
tween the middle and ring fingers,
he picked a spot on the floor about
three feet in front of him, closed his
eyes slightly and concentrated on
his breathing.
No other thoughts should enter
the mind at this time, Greg Jones
later said when discussing medita-
tion. As the teacher of the introduc-
tory meditation class at Gainesville
Karma Thegsum Choling, Jones,
who practices Tibetan Buddhism,
said meditation has many out-
comes.
"You are able to build a little bit
of space and take a step back from
the situation," he said.
The Sunday class' five-minute
meditation sessions begin and end
with the chime of a gong.
Baptized as a Methodist when
he was younger, Jones said Christi-
anity never fit him.
After exploring many religions,
including that of the Cherokee Na-
tive American tribe, Jones found


Buddhism five years ago, which he
said made his life more centered.
"I used to be known to fly off the
handle and I'm also a bit ADD," he
said. "But now I'm able to focus on
my tasks."
Jones said he is now able to
watch what is going on around him
and ask himself, "Is this really how
I want to act? What I want to do?"
Jones said meditation is an active
process that builds mental muscle.
There are many branches of Bud-
dhism, with each culture practicing
slightly differently and "adding
their own twist, turns and color."
But they all believe that when a
person dies, their spirit is reincar-
nated, Jones said.
"You know the saying 'been
there done that?'" he asked. "Well,
we'll be there, and we'll do it
again."
Lama David Bole, resident
teacher at the Center, earned the
title "lama," which means teacher,
by completing a three-year and
three-month meditation retreat in
Woodstock, N.Y.
He said that more than 25,000
years ago, Siddhartha Gautama,
born as a prince in northern India,
founded Buddhism. Gautama,
known to his followers as Buddha,
resisted pressure from his father to
take over the kingdom of Lumbini
and decided to become a spiritual
leader. Bole said that in the begin-
ning, Buddha's practices were self-
torturing, but later in his spiritual

Book sale offers bargains


on more than 300K items


* 711 PEOPLE ARRIVED
WITHIN FIRST EIGHT
MINUTES OF SALE.

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Writer

College students stocked
up on biology, chemistry
and calculus textbooks while
mystery lovers chose be-
tween 6,875 novels at the
Friends of the Library book
sale that started Saturday.
The sign "Welcome Book-
worms" greeted customers
into a 15,000-square-foot
warehouse filled with stacks
of books and other items.
The biannual sale offers
more than 300,000 items,
including classical litera-
ture, fiction and gardening
books as well as CDs, VHS
tapes, audiobooks and Play-
boy magazines. Most prices
range from 25 cents to $3.
The book sale will contin-
ue today and Tuesday, from
noon to 8 p.m., and Wednes-
day until 6 p.m.
On Tuesday, items will be
half-price. Wednesday, the
final day of the sale, will be
10-cent day.


Joan Curl, president of
Friends of the Library, said
organizers were worried that
the turnout would be low be-
cause of the recession.
But their worries quickly
disappeared when they saw
a huge crowd lining up near
the entrance of the ware-
house on Saturday.

"You look at people
here and you can see
in their eyes how much
they love books and
reading."
Benito Veron
Gainesville resident


She said 711 people came
in first eight minutes, but af-
ter that the exact number of
customers was impossible to
count.
The proceeds from the
event go to the Alachua
County Library District. The
event also funds numerous
programs, such as Adult
Literacy League Inc., and of-
fers mini-grants to proposed
projects.
More than $2 million was
donated to the Alachua Li-


brary District, said Margaret
Wagener, a volunteer at the
book sale.
Curl said Friends of the Li-
brary collects books through-
out the year from libraries,
bookstores and Gainesville
residents.
Liz Jones, volunteer chair-
woman of Friends of the Li-
brary, said some bookstores
went out of business this
year, donating their books,
many of them in very good
condition.
In the Collector's Corner
section, prices ranged from
less than $2 to about $200
for rare items, such as signed
books, first editions of books,
rare children's books, post-
ers, Florida collections and
maps. A poster signed by
Tim Tebow was sold within
hours.
Gainesville resident Beni-
to Veron, 68, said he has at-
tended the book sale for five
years.
"You look at people here
and you can see in their eyes
how much they love books
and reading," he said, stand-
ing by a carton box filled
with books, audio cassettes
and CDs.

Coeds cast off clothes,


cavort around campus


By JESSICA RONAY
Alligator Contributing Writer

About 200 students stripped to their
skivvies at about midnight Friday af-
ter gathering on Turlington Plaza for
the ninth biannual Great Underwear
Dash.
After chanting UF cheers, such as
"It's great to be a Florida Gator," stu-
dents cast away their clothing and be-
gan counting down to the start of the
run.
Dash founder and UF alumnus
Beau Bergeron said the event began in
spring of 2005 and said he felt it helps
promote a positive body image.
UF electrical engineering senior
Christian Ramirez and his friends came
ready to run wearing boxer briefs,


Mexican sombreros and bandannas.
For them, the dash is a proper fare-
well to their four years of college.
"We wanted to go out with a bang,"
Ramirez said.
The dashers ran up the campus side
of University Avenue, where they re-
ceived high-fives from
On people walking by and
Campus honks from passing cars.
After ending the sprint
on Turlington Plaza at about 1 a.m.,
some students took a dip in the foun-
tain near the College of Fine Arts, sing-
ing, cheering and posing for pictures.
Clothes from the event will be do-
nated to Gainesville's Salvation Army,
according to event organizer Jorge
Gomez.

Mario Cavaradossi wasn't sup-

weeks before the debut to rehearse
with the cast.

"It's so great working with

Tyus becomes Gators' 2nd


transfer in two-week span


Center leaves questions in frontcourt


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

The blows keep coming for
the UF men's basketball team.
Sophomore center Alex
Tyus announced his intention
to transfer from UF on Friday.
"Coach Donovan and I had
a chance to talk about my fu-
ture, and we agreed on the
best course of action," Tyus
said in a statement. "I want to
thank my coaches, my team-
mates and the fans at Florida.
I enjoyed my two years here,
and now I look forward to the
next chapter of my life."
Tyus was second on the
team in scoring this season, av-
eraging 12.5 points per game.
He was the Gators' only real
option in the paint, bringing in
a team-high 6.2 rebounds.
"Sometimes for guys, they
want something different," UF
coach Billy Donovan said. "For
Alex, I enjoyed coaching him
for two years, but at the same
point he wants to do things for
himself. That's a decision that
he has to make on his own
about what he wants."


The 6-foot-8 Tyus, a natural
power forward, was forced to
play center this season in the
undersized UF frontcourt.
"As a coach, you know
there is a certain vision and a
certain path that's necessary
for the team going forward,
and I think that Alex, that's
not really what he wanted to
do," Donovan said. "And I
respect that. I wish him luck,
and I hope he can get what
he's looking for."
"For Alex, I enjoyed
coaching him for two
years, but at the same
point he wants to do
things for himself."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

Tyus started all 36 games
this season for the Gators and
shot nearly 60 percent from
the field.
He is the 10th Gator to
transfer since the 2003-04 sea-
son. Tyus' decision to leave
comes on the heels of Allan
Chaney's recent transfer as


well as news that recruit De-
Shawn Painter has been re-
leased from the letter of intent
he signed in November.
Although Tyus has not ad-
dressed the media since he an-
nounced his decision to trans-
fer Friday, he dispelled some
rumors through his Facebook
page, writing that his decision
had nothing to do with aca-
demic problems.
"I decided to transfer be-
cause i (sic) did not feel that
I was going to get the oppur-
tunity (sic) to become the best
player I can be, along with a
few other basketball factors,"
Tyus said.
If Nick Calathes leaves for
the NBA, UF will be without
its two top scorers from last
season.
"I don't know what's going
to happen with Nick," Dono-
van said.
"I think that Nick right
now is certainly, probably not
a clear-cut first-round draft
pick. Now all that can change,
and it changes over a period
of time. I think Nick will go
through the process and take
a look at it."


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
Alex Tyus announced he will transfer from UF on Friday. The sophomore said he
did not feel he would get the chance to be "the best player (he) can be" at UF.

a GEORGIA WON ITS FIFTH
STRAIGHT NATIONAL TITLE.

Cinderella just wasn't feeling or-
ange and blue.
The No. 5 UF gymnastics team, run-
ning on a two-thirds-full tank of gas,
finished fourth at the NCAA Cham-
pionships in Lincoln, Neb., with a
196.725.
No. 1 Georgia won the national
championship for the fifth straight year
with a 197.825.
The Gators team was depleted for
its postseason meets but managed a
third-place finish at the Southeastern


Conference Championships and an
NCAA Regional win to get to Lincoln.
"We feel that they performed better
than they have ever at a national cham-
pionship as a team," UF coach Rhonda
Faehn said.
The Gators finished fourth for the
second year in a
S row, this time with
eight gymnasts af-

Bostic's performance in spring game impresses Meyer


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
bsteele@alligator.org

UF coach Urban Meyer made no secret
of the fact that he loves freshman lineback-
er Jon Bostic after Saturday's Orange and
Blue Game.
In fact, Meyer said he had to be careful
not to gush too much so he wouldn't heap
pressure on Bostic.
Bostic played safety in high school but
was recruited as an inside linebacker for
the Gators.
Now, he has the inside track to replac-


ing to Brandon Spikes and may even start
next year.
Bostic had four tackles, including one
impressive takedown of the speedy Chris
Rainey in the open field, and one pass de-
flection that led to an interception on Sat-
urday.
"My thoughts coming in were (to) just
learn as much as I could my first year,"
Bostic said. "If I had to redshirt, then red-
shirt."
That, Meyer said, is no longer an op-
tion.
"He's playing," Meyer said. "The red-
shirt's gone. It's now a battle for a starting


spot at Florida."
That's high praise, considering the
Gators still have linebackers Spikes, Ryan
Stamper, Dustin Doe, A.J. Jones and Bran-
don Hicks who all saw
significant time last year.
"It's actually come pretty
quickly and kind of eas-
Football ily," Bostic said. "When I
watch something, I can turn
around and do it the very
next play."
FULLBACKS BACK ON TRACK: A few weeks
ago, Meyer thought his fullback play was
"bordering on embarrassing." There's no


reason to get red-faced anymore, though,
when it comes to talking about that posi-
tion.
T.J. Pridemore and Rick Burgess caught
touchdown passes in Saturday's game and
have shown great improvement in block-
ing as well.
"When we were seeing some of the
stuff (Meyer) said, it wasn't personal,"
Pridemore said.
"I know he didn't mean it personal, but
it was personal at the same time. "We did
have to have somebody step up. I feel like
it's a position that the coaches feel like that
we have to have."


Walk-on running back Scott finishes with game-high 80 yards


FOOTBALL, from page 1

ence in the pocket, his poise.
"He took a shot under the
chin and delivered a strike, all
the signs and evidence of a guy
that's really developing into one
heck of a football player."
Walk-on running back Chris-
topher Scott was the big surprise
on the ground.
The junior rushed for 80 yards
on 14 carries.
Scott spent two and a half
years away from football while


he was a student at Santa Fe Col-
lege, but he walked on at UF in
the spring of 2008.
He spent last season working
as a strong safety on the scout
team.
"I know when I first came out,
I felt like I was one of those target
dummies," Scott said. "I remem-
ber going out there and being at
practice, and I'm just on a knee
half the time last year. This year,
I'm in there on a lot of downs.

to try to get me on the field wher-
ever that's at. I'm pretty much

trying to earn their trust and
keep it."
Hardly any of the big names
made appearances Saturday. In
all, 16 starters had the day off.


The entire first-team defense was
held out of the game, as was tight
end Aaron Hernandez.
Tebow, receiver Deonte
Thompson, running back Chris
Rainey and three offensive line-
men Carl Johnson, James Wil-
son and Marcus Gilbert were
the only first-team players to see
the field.
"You can't coach scared, but
there were certain guys that I
saw enough from (this spring),"
Meyer said.
GATORS RECEIVE FIRST RINGS:
Before the game, players received


one of the three rings they earned
for their accomplishments last
season.
The team gets one for winning
the SEC championship, another
for winning the national champi-
onship and a third from UF.
The ring they were given Sat-
urday the one from the BCS
- was silver with an orange-
and-blue "No. 1" etched between
"National" and "Champions."
"My arm's already a little
bit sore, and I've only had it on
a couple of minutes," Brantley
said.

UF SPORTS ROUNDUP

Gators drop two of three weekend games vs. Rebels


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

Walks and missed opportunities
can be just as harmful to a team's
chances of winning as errors and
home runs.
It was the little things that caused
UF (26-14,10-8 Southeastern Confer-
ence) to drop two of three to Missis-
sippi (28-11, 11-7 SEC) this weekend
in Gainesville.
After the Gators won Saturday's
game 8-4, the Rebels took Sunday's
matchup 5-3 on the legs of leadoff
hitter Jordan Henry and the arm of
starting pitcher Scott Bittle.
"There's no blame on any aspect
of the team," UF left fielder Avery
Barnes said. "Unfortunately, we just
didn't come out and get it done to-
day."
Henry drew four free passes and
added a single in his fifth at-bat, dis-
rupting the Gators' pitchers from
the first inning.
The junior spark plug swiped
three bags and scored 2 runs as Mis-


sissippi became the first SEC team to
take a series from UF in McKethan
Stadium this season.
Freshman starter Alex Pan-
teliodis (3-5, 4.04 ERA) walked
Henry on four pitches in the first
and third innings, which set the tone
for the game.
In Henry's first
at-bat, he stole
second and third
base, but Pan-
teliodis was able
to pitch out of
the jam without
allowing a run.
Barnes The second walk,
however, proved
costly, as the Rebels' next hitter,
Kyle Henson, took Panteliodis deep
to tie the game at 2-2.
"The thing that's disappointing
is we walked six guys today," UF
coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. "A.P.
(had) two four-pitch walks, and
that just can't happen. That was the
difference in the ballgame, in my
opinion, because three of the walks
scored and we lost by 2."


The other two walks that went on
to score came in the fifth, when Greg
Larson put Henry on first to start
the inning and then intentionally
walked Logan Power to put runners
on the comers with one out. A wild
pitch followed by a single was good
enough to score both runners, and
Mississippi took a 4-2 lead that held
up for the rest of the game.
The Rebels got a quality start from
Bittle, who went six innings and al-
lowed 3 runs. Bittle's effort was the
Rebels' second strong outing of the
weekend, as sophomore Drew Po-
meranz turned in a complete-game,
nine-strikeout gem in Friday night's
6-2 victory.
"That's the best pitching staff
we've seen so far," O'Sullivan said.
The Gators were able to get to
Bittle in the first inning, when Dan-
iel Pigott and Barnes each drew
one-out walks and later scored on a
single from Josh Adams and a bas-
es-loaded walk from Teddy Foster.
Home-plate umpire Randy Watkins
had a tight zone throughout the
game, and both coaches questioned


balls and strikes at different points
in the game.
TRACK PICKS UP32 REGIONAL-QUAL-
IFYING MARKS: After a week off, the
UF track and field teams continued
their successful outdoor season in
the War Eagle Invitational at Au-
burn over the weekend. The Gators
gathered eight wins and a total of 32
NCAA regional-qualifying marks in
the two-day event.
Leading the charge for UF was
freshman distance runner Gen-
evieve LaCaze. She highlighted the
first day of competition by breaking
UF's freshman record with a win in
the women's 1,500-meter run.
She won the race in 4:20.90, best-
ing the previous school record of
4:22.18 that she set on April 3 during
the Florida Relays.
Having never competed in an in-
door meet before this season, it took
LaCaze some time to adjust. But the
outdoor season has put her in a fa-
miliar environment.
UF coaches knew the potential
LaCaze had when they recruited
her, and they were not surprised by


her performance this weekend.
"We are very excited about what
she is doing, and we expect her to
keep going in that same direction,"
UF coach Mike Holloway said.
Another freshman, Christian
Taylor, performed well for UF this
weekend, picking up where he left
off two weeks ago at the Florida Re-
lays. Taylor won his first outdoor
long jump with a leap of 25 feet, 4
inches, an NCAA regional-qualify-
ing distance. He picked up another
regional-qualifying mark when he
finished sixth in the men's 200-me-
ter dash in a time of 20.91 seconds.
Also in the spotlight for UF this
weekend was freshman sprinter Jeff
Demps. Demps made his season
debut in the men's 100-meter dash,
finishing sixth in 10.42 seconds.
"Jeff and I have talked. We've
got a plan, and he'll be ready when
the championship season (begins),"
Holloway said.
UF will head back to practice and
make little tweaks in preparation for
the Penn Relays on Thursday.

UF SOFTBALL

Gators claim second straight SEC regular-season title


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Francesca Enea found out the
Gators won their second straight
regular-season Southeastern Con-
ference title from an unusual source:
the team's bus driver, Tony.
Enea heard him chanting "SEC
champs" in the stands alongside
the 1,679 fans who showed up at
Tiger Park on Saturday for No. 1
UF's doubleheader sweep of No. 18
LSU.
"We were like, 'Why's he chant-
ing that?' Everyone was like, 'Be-
cause we just clinched the SEC,"'
Enea said.
The Gators (46-3, 23-1 SEC) shut
out the Tigers (27-13-1, 10-9-1 SEC)
in the three-game set this weekend
in Baton Rouge, La.
UF put up just 4 runs in Satur-
day's doubleheader, and first base-
man Ali Gardiner's two home runs
sparked the Gators at the plate Sun-
day, pushing them to a 12-0 mercy-
rule victory in Game 3.
After the Gators took down the
Tigers 3-0 in Game 1 coach Tim
Walton's first win at LSU UF's
1-0 win in Game 2 clinched the top
seed in the SEC Tournament.
"I don't think we really needed
any more motivation to compete


with LSU at their field because
we've had a long history of not be-
ing able to do so," Gardiner said.
"For us to be able to come and not
just pull out one game but to win
all three, it means a lot to us."
For a team that set its sights on a
national championship in the pre-
season, winning the regular-season
conference title is only one step on
the road to Oklahoma City.
"We're just working goal by
goal, and we accomplished our first
one today," Gardiner said.
"I don't think we really
needed any more motivation
to compete with LSU at their
field because we've had a
long history of not being able
to do so."
Ali Gardiner
UF senior first baseman

The Gators started out hot at the
plate Saturday, as Enea's 2-run shot
to left field on the first pitch she saw
gave the team an early lead.
UF had just two hits in the rest
of Game 1, but Stacey Nelson (27-
3, 0.41 ERA) got the win, pitching a
complete-game shutout while only
allowing five hits and walking one
batter.


Center fielder Michelle Moultrie
drove in Corrie Brooks with a sac-
rifice fly in the fourth for the only
other run of the game.
Tigers pitcher Brittany Mack
held the Gators to just five hits in
Game 2, but Stephanie Brombacher
(19-0, 0.87 ERA) only gave up two
in her six innings of work. Nelson
finished the game out, striking out
two and earning her third save of
the season.
"They were really tough to hit,"
Walton said.
"Both pitchers did a great job
staying ahead the whole time, and
we played great defense behind
them."
Nelson returned to the circle
Sunday, striking out seven and giv-
ing up five hits in five innings.
Unlike in the previous two
games, though, her offense lit up
the scoreboard. The Gators scored 6
runs in the first two innings thanks
to Gardiner's two longballs and an
error by Tigers shortstop Juliana
Santos on an infield hit by Kristina
Hilberth.
"We talk about if we can get to
5 runs, that's the magic number,"
Walton said. "Once you get to 5,
things change. You don't have to
fight as much, you start to swing
a little bit easier, and I think that's
what happened today."

ing accomplishment," Melanie Sinclair said.
Given the circumstances, Sinclair said the
team was happy just to finish as high as it
did.
With one-third of the team unable to com-
pete, the workload increased for UF's eight
available gymnasts. Maranda Smith, Court-
ney Gladys and Elizabeth Mahlich were all
promoted to all-around roles, joining estab-
lished all-around competitors Corey Har-
tung and Sinclair.
Hartung, a senior, ended her UF career
with an all-around score of 39.6 on Friday
in the Super Six competition. She tied her
college best on floor exercise with a 9.95 and


turned in a 9.9 on vault. She finished third
on floor Saturday in the individual event
title competition.
"Feels good to end that way," Hartung
said. "I could never have ended with a bet-
ter NCAA (Championship meet) under my
belt."
She said the team was fueled by the idea
of proving its doubters wrong and was de-
termined to not fold despite injuries.
"We want to prove to everybody that
we can still be the best gymnastics team out
there with what we have," Hartung said.
Sinclair trailed Hartung closely and fin-
ished with a 39.4 in the all-around category.
She also qualified for the individual uneven
bars competition and finished seventh.
Teammate Alicia Goodwin, who qualified


for the bars final with a 9.775 on Friday,
claimed third in the event. She posted a 9.9,
just .025 shy of her college best.
"That was great to
S see, especially for her.
It's going to continue
to help build her confi-
dence. Three and a half
Gymnastics weeks ago, she couldn't
walk," Faehn said, refer-
encing the sprained knee Goodwin suffered
in practice the week of the SEC Champion-
ships.
Smith, who was the Gators' top perform-
er in Session 1 of the NCAA Championships
on Thursday, contributed consistent scores
in the Super Six, including a 9.9 on floor.
After falling twice during her floor rou-


tine Thursday, freshman Amy Ferguson re-
bounded with a 9.825 floor score Friday.
Gladys was another dependable scorer
for the Gators in the Super Six, never leav-
ing the 9.8-9.85 range.
Ashley Kerr, who also filled in because
of injuries, provided a fallback score of 9.6
on vault after Mahlich hiccuped on her vault
routine and posted a 9.45. Mahlich scored a
9.8 on bars and a pair of 9.825s on balance
beam and floor.
It wasn't a first-place finish, but it wasn't
a fully healthy team, either.
"This team, without a doubt, accom-
plished something far greater than it ever
could have imagined," Faehn said. "We
definitely feel, as a team, that this was a win-
ning championship season for us."


MIKE, from page 16


about was seeing UF run some
plays from the I-formation, but
with Moody, Hernandez and half
the offensive line out, what's the
point?
Outside of the Powder Puff
game and 40-yard-dash competi-
tion, there was nothing going on
that couldn't be seen at a regular
spring practice.
I felt bad for Urban Meyer
during the game. Knowing The
Swamp would be about two-
thirds full and with a roster at the
same capacity because of injuries,
he was faced with a dilemma.
How do you get some produc-
tive work in for your team with-
out adding to the injury list, all
while making it semi-interesting
for fans?


"I don't want to apologize be-
cause it's not my job to apologize,
but I just want to tell The Gator
Nation that (the attendance) was
something else," Meyer said.
"We average more per spring
game than most schools average
per home game."
In all seriousness, I admire the
dedication of the fans. They knew
they wouldn't be seeing much of
a contest due to the Gators' in-
juries, but they showed up any-
way.
The spring game will always
draw a crowd because this time
of year, people are starved for
football. So why not reward that
dedication with a little fun?
My favorite parts of the game
were watching the kickers try
62-yard field goals, punter Chas
Henry taking on kicker Jonathan
Phillips in the "Circle of Life"


hitting drill (it was a push), see-
ing Aaron Hernandez run the 40-
yard dash against students and
watching receiver Frankie Ham-
mond Jr. embarrass cornerback
Adrian Bushell en route to a 50-
yard touchdown.
The 40-yard dash competition
is interesting because it shows
how talented the football play-
ers are compared to the rest of us,
and that idea could be expanded
into a really fun day.
Run a quick scrimmage for one
half, and then go into some skills
competitions to show off what
these guys are good at. Make the
Pouncey twins commentate it.
Have Tebow and Brantley go
head-to-head in accuracy compe-
titions. Make them throw at flying
dinner plates like former Georgia
quarterback Matt Stafford did on
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon


(Note: Stafford was great at it, all
while wearing a sport coat). Also,
see if one of them can throw a
ball out of the stadium.
Hernandez dunked over the
field goal post in practice last
week, so have a celebration/
dunk contest. Also, more Circle
of Life drills. And Tebow and
Spikes have to go against each
other. Society demands it.
Run some one-on-one drills
with receivers and corners, and
see if Henry can punt into a kid-
die pool from 50 yards away.
Or have him kick at blindfolded
teammates.
Kickers always get a bad rap
for messing up, so line up Tebow
and some other guys to try extra
points and punt. Conversely, let
Henry play quarterback for a se-
ries.
The Carl-Moore-to-Deonte-


Thompson pass was cool, so di-
vide the offense into two teams
and have a trick-play competi-
tion. Involve Percy Harvin some-
how. He could use the good pub-
licity.
Finally, I love the 40-yard dash
competition, but no one is going
to beat Chris Rainey. I want to see
him race a horse. Or a panther.
That format would allow the
team to practice but still give the
fans a good show.
Also, it's guaranteed airtime
on ESPN. Not that the Gators re-
ally need it, as the five minutes I
watched of Alabama's televised
game featured more Tebow/
UF talk than anything about the
Crimson Tide, but it couldn't
hurt.
That would be something
worthy of televising. And worth
going to.

Men's golf finishes third at SEC Championships


Horschel takes home individual title for UF


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

Entering the postseason fresh off
its worst performance of the year,
the UF men's golf team needed to
regain the swagger it once had as a
top-five team.
It did just that in the Southeast-
ern Conference Championships
over the weekend.
The No. 7 Gators finished the
event in third place with a team
score of 1 over par.
Senior Billy Horschel shot 10 un-
der par in the tournament to claim
the individual title. After Saturday's
second round, his score was atop
the leaderboard, and nobody could
overtake him in Sunday's final
round.
"I knew if I played well, they
would have to come chase me,"
Horschel said.
Coach Buddy Alexander was
glad to see one of his seniors play
well in his last conference champi-

onship.
"Billy played terrific golf," Al-
exander said. "He wants to win an
NCAA championship ring, but at
least he already has a ring from play-
ing as an individual in the SECs."
While Horschel has been a con-
stant all season, the fifth spot in the
lineup hasn't.
Senior Will Strickler stepped up
in that position over the weekend.
He showed resilience, as he started
the tournament with a score of 5
over par in the first five holes of the
weekend but shot 1 under par the
rest of the way.
"I think we are pretty set on the
five guys we are going to use in the
postseason," Alexander said. "Will
is one of those guys that I thought
did a great job in battling."
Although UF seemed to answer
its lineup question, it didn't answer
the Georgia question.
For the third time this year, the
Gators and the No. 1 Bulldogs par-
ticipated in the same tournament,
and for the third time this year,


Georgia finished ahead of UF.
"Georgia is a very good team,
and in order to beat them you have
to be pretty close to perfect," junior
Tim McKenney said.
UF will have until May 14 to pre-
pare for the NCAA Regionals.
WOMEN'S TENNIS KNOCKS OFF
SOUTH CAROLINA: The South Car-
olina women's
tennis team has
not defeated UF
since before Cal

his record streak
of 2,632 consecu-
tive games. That
Boonstra was in 1982,
the same year
Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was
released and the computer was
named Time Magazine's "Man of

Sunday's match was no differ-
ent, as the No. 16 Gators beat the
No. 20 Gamecocks 4-2 to clinch a
first-round bye in the Southeastern
Conference Tournament.

It wasn't easy, though. At least
not in the beginning.
After dropping a doubles match
on Court 3, UF (13-7, 7-4 SEC) was in
danger of giving up the first point.
Marrit Boonstra and Jo Mather were
down 6-5 before rattling off three
consecutive games, leaving Jessica
Alexander and Anastasia Revzina to
clinch the doubles point.
The crowd, Thomqvist said,
is always a factor in Gators home
matches.
"It's what they call the '12th
Man' in football clearly play-
ing at home, because I see our level
of play go up a notch," UF coach Ro-
land Thomqvist said. "We've done
a great job holding our matches. In
doubles, we were in trouble on both
courts (1 and 2) there for a while and
dialed the right number at the end
of both."
The freshmen were the standouts
of the match. Alexander claimed the
team's second point, breezing by
Natasa Vuckovic 6-1, 6-2. Mather
rallied back after being down 3-0
and then 4-1 to beat Dijana Stojic 6-4,
6-0. Mather and Stojic, also a fresh-


man, had winning streaks of eight
coming into the match.
Mather broke Stojic's serve and,
eventually, her spirit.
"She started out playing pretty
well, and I kind of made a few mis-
takes," Mather said. "But once I
got through them, I don't think she
wanted to be out there anymore."
Boonstra ended the dual match
with a beautiful winner that fell
just behind a backpedaling Gira
Schofield, who had rushed the net.
Freshman Barbara Pinterova was
ahead 6-2, 5-5 in her match but did
not finish after the Gators clinched
the victory. Pinterova was suffer-
ing cramps in her right leg but said
she'll be ready for the SEC Tourna-
ment on Friday.
Thomqvist has been impressed
with the first-year players all year.
"It took a while for a couple of
them to settle down because this is
their first time going through this
grueling schedule that we have," he
said. "Every time you play, you're
playing someone almost as good as
you or maybe sometimes better."
