HEALTH CARE


Bill inspires dissent


On the Fence
UF Fencing Club members Aeron Van Scoyk (bottom) and Paul Tang

Local reactions to the House of Representa-
tives' historic health care bill passing Sunday
night were as partisan as the vote itself.
Bryan Griffin, Florida College Republicans'
executive director, was watching C-SPAN
while working on homework.
"I honestly thought the Democrats would
understand the American people want more
time before they voted," he said.
But once they began, he knew the Republi-
cans had lost this battle.
"I saw the inevitability when they started
voting," Griffin said. "But I didn't break down


in tears or anything. It made me optimistic for
2010."
Griffin said he disagreed with almost every
part of the legislation.
He said the tax cuts in the
bill were subsidies that would
add to an unsustainable
deficit, and the government
shouldn't regulate insurance
companies from dropping
sick customers or denying
cavataro children with pre-existing
Cavataro conditions.
Griffin said he believed most Democrats
hadn't even read the bill, but that a majority of

Friends remember student


* TOM HOLLISTER TRANSFERRED TO
UF THIS SEMESTER.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
and CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Writers

Sam Hollister was always close to his twin
brother Tom. And, as they grew older, they grew
even closer.
The brothers were born in Kenya and spent 10
years living in Thailand.
They sang in a high school rock band and
played shows in Tallahassee.


Tom, who transferred to UF this semester to
study electrical engineering, was a diligent stu-
dent and a loyal friend.
"The most noticeable thing about him
is he is just really sweet"
Maggie Lawrence
UFjournalism senior

On March 13, Tom and his father, David Hol-
lister, were driving on U.S. Highway 98 on their
way to Carrabelle, a small beach town in the Pan-
handle. They were killed when a pine tree hit
their car, causing it to swerve into a ditch.

top recruits, but the
Gators are looking
at him to lead the
unit next year.

Exploring genetics,
culture, and disease
Why do we ,
get sick? Why do I
we get diseases
like cancer and
hypertension, the
ones scientists call
'complex diseases?
Is it something in
the environment,
something we do or
in our genes? Why Connie Mulligan
do some people,
more than others, seem more prone to
certain diseases?
These questions are at the heart
of new research in the Department
of Anthropology and the Genetics
Institute. Our work is combining
genetic and sociocultural data to
investigate risk factors for hypertension.
Lance Gravlee, a medical anthropologist,
and I are studying hypertension because
it is a condition subject to family history
(genes) and also the environment
(what you eat, how much money you
make, etc.) Furthermore, it is subject
to biological and psychological factors
such as stress, which may result from
racial discrimination and help explain
why African Americans have a high
prevalence of hypertension.

research, visit www.clas.ufl.edu/users/

Students assist rural

Floridians and gain insight

to unique culture


The eyes of several University of Florida students were opened by more than just sunshine during
the recent spring break. The group was exposed to a unique culture while using arts to deliver health
messages in an area known as Florida's "Forgotten Coast."
A group of students from the College of Fine Arts, along with a few faculty members, traveled
across Florida's Panhandle to the Apalachicola Bay of Franklin County. Jill Sonke, director of the UF
Center for the Arts in Healthcare, led the UF team in a project titled AIM for the Panhandle. The
project focused on assisting the rural community by collecting local oystermen's histories, providing
free health screenings and creating a collaborative outdoor mural for a region suffering from a strug-
gling oyster industry.
The area's major industry, oyster harvesting, has been devastated by freezing weather and upriver
flooding. In February, Franklin County commissioners declared a local state of emergency. Less than
two weeks later, the USDA declared the county an agricultural disaster area.
The conditions have resulted in job loss for many seafood workers, particularly oystermen and
women. Sonke said many of the local families have lost their homes or are without electricity or run-
ning water because of the lost income.
UF has partnered with the local BayAid program to provide for the emergency needs of the suffer-
ing families that number between 1,000 and 1,300 in the Apalachicola area. Sonke said coordinating
with the local program helped the small-town community of less than 2,500 people be more open to
the help of outsiders.
The UF team immersed themselves in the rare culture before and during the project. They read
several pieces of local literature prior to the trip, and stayed with local families during the project.
While reaching out to this community through the various art and health projects, the UF team
broadened their perspective of Floridian life.
"The experience has opened their eyes to a different style of culture," City Administrator Betty
Webb said. "It is such a different location and people."

Commission allocates $404K for public safety


By MINCH MINCHIN
Alligator Writer

The Alachua County Commis-
sion voted unanimously Monday
morning to give the Alachua Coun-
ty Department of Public Safety an
additional $404,565.
If the motion had not passed,
the fire station in the southwest
Gainesville suburb of Jonesville
would have been shut down next
month, putting nine firefighters out
of work, according to Commission
chairwoman Cynthia Chestnut.
The funds will come from gen-
eral county revenues, she said.
"It shows we're committed to
public safety," Chestnut said.
Brett Sandlin, president of the lo-
cal International Association of Fire
Fighters union, was grateful for the
decision.
Immediately following the vote,
he issued a three-sentence state-
ment, thanking the commission for
allowing the fire station to remain
open.
"We're grateful that [the Com-
mission] allowed us to keep our
jobs," he said.


Fire Station 17 in Jonesville has
already significantly trimmed its
budget since last year, Sandlin
said, yet without additional county
funding, all the firefighters would
have been laid off and the equip-
ment would have been sent to
other stations beginning April 1.
"This was important," he said. "I'm
thankful."
The decision to allocate the funds
is coming at a time when the Ala-
chua County budget is facing reduc-
tions on all levels.
This year's budget has under-
gone several modifications to reduce
spending, but the outlook is still
poor, said Alachua County Manager
Randall Reid.
"This is a difficult situation," he
said.
During the meeting, the commis-
sioners also called for an audit and
increased promotion of the Alachua
County CHOICES health care pro-
gram after Chestnut asked for an
investigation to determine how the
program would be affected by the
federal health care bill that passed
through the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives Sunday night.


Alachua County commissioners Lee Pinkoson and Cynthia Chestnut react to audience input during a
special commission meeting Monday morning.


LGBT students create postcards about coming out


* THE POSTCARDS WILL PROMOTE
A YEARLONG PROJECT.

By KATRINA PEREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF students are being asked to share
their feelings about coming out without
fear of judgment. All they need is a post-
age stamp.
The OUT Project, which began in Janu-
ary, asks students to anonymously share
their thoughts in the form of a post card


- about coming out to their friends and
family.
The UF Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual
and Transgender Affairs will be tabling
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the upcoming
two weeks.
The project will promote the office's
yearlong art project on the Reitz Union
Colonnade.
The steps for the project are simple: be
brief, be legible and be creative.
"A lot of people think you come out,
and it's a one-time thing. But there's a


whole lot more that goes into it," said Ste-
ven Sweat, a graduate assistant at the UF's
Office of Multicultural and Diversity Af-
fairs. "It's a process."
Sweat said he thinks the project, in-
spired by PostSecret, allows people to
come together and share feel-
Student ings in an open and safe way.
Life Those who are not lesbian,
gay, bisexual or transgender
but are supporters of the LGBT commu-
nity, commonly known as allies, are also
encouraged to share their feelings about


others coming out to them, Sweat said.
Alex Jones, who came out to his friends
last year, believes the project benefits
people who have not come out about their
sexuality.
"I know that it feels like no one else is
in their situation, and I think it will help
them feel less alone by seeing other peo-
ple's stories," he said.
The final event of the OUT Project will
be during the week of National Coming
Out Day, Oct. 11, to showcase all the post-
cards in the Reitz Union gallery.

Counselors available to discuss shooting with students


* UF ALSO REACHED OUT TO
ADU-BREMPONG'S FAMILY.

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

After the University Police Department
shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong on March 2,
staff members of the UF Counseling & Well-
ness Center are making themselves available
to students who want to talk about the inci-
dent.
Sherry Benton, the director of the Counsel-
ing & Wellness Center, said the center is will-
ing to provide whatever support it can to pro-
vide for the needs of the campus.
Benton said the center's Crisis Response
Team responded immediately on the night of
the shooting to be there for residents of Corry


Village who heard the gun shots and saw the
group of police.
"We got into action within half an hour,"
Benton said.
The team stayed until about 1:30 a.m.
The night after the shooting, Benton said
the center called a meeting for residents of
Corry Village, UF administrators and UPD of-
ficers to talk about the incident.
Sheryl Quail, a Ph.D. student in the school
of forest resources and conservation and a res-
ident of Corry Village, attended the meeting.
Quail said some residents require counsel-
ing while others are focusing on organizing
response groups in the wake of the campus
shooting.
"I have heard that there are some who need
counseling, and UF has responded to that,"
Quail said.
UF counselors have also reached out to


Adu-Brempong's family members.
Benton said she met with Adu-Brempong's
brother and went with him to the hospital.
She said staff were also on hand during last
week's student rally and protest, making sure
students had someone to talk to if they need
help.
"We've had a number of people talk about
it with our staff in a variety of
Public ways since then," Benton said.
Health Students who have used men-
tal services include other resi-
dents of Corry Village, students in the geog-
raphy department who knew Adu-Brempong
and other international students.
Benton could not legally disclose whether
or not Adu-Brempong needed counseling
during the days leading up to the shooting.
Tong-An Shueh, an international doctoral
student studying counseling psychology, said


he did not know Adu-Brempong personally
or visit the Counseling & Wellness Center but
felt he could relate to his situation.
They are often far away from their homes,
their families and are also learning a new cul-
ture and a different work and school system.
Shueh said Adu-Brempong was clearly in
distress, and he wishes the situation was han-
dled differently.
Shueh said he thinks the center does a very
good job with helping international students
adjust to their new situations.
He said he does not understand why UPD
was called to handle the situation when Adu-
Brempong was showing signs of distress.
"The crisis was handled mainly by police
force, and I don't think that's right," Shueh
said.

Monday Miracle

Students became health

experts overnight

Tn one of the greatest miracles to ever grace academia since
the adderall cocktail, millions of college students overnight
have become America's leading experts on health care pol-
icy.
Instead of doing what one would expect keeping these se-
crets to themselves and selling them to the U.S. government at
an exorbitant fee to buttress their bankrolls they are doing a
selfless, patriotic service in sharing them all on Facebook for the
whole world's benefit.
Although our lead scientists and policy experts are hard at
work establishing the cause of this phenomenon, their initial
findings have concluded two things.
First, Democrats shot the GOP Death Star something so
great that it would make Christ's second coming look like a
Buzz Killington story. Ring the church bells and fire the can-
nons. It's a new and glorious mom!
And second, that dirty, treacherous Islamic terrorist Hussein
and his henchmen from the ninth circle of Hell, who want to kill
grandma, sell our wives into slavery and eat our babies, have
plunged America into a Stalinist wasteland where couples will
be forced to only have three-sevenths of a child and all colors
except red and atheistic gray will be outlawed.
In the coming weeks, our top physicists tell us, these virtual
virtuosos will be treated like gods among mere mortals. Pro-
fessors will shower praise on them. The townspeople will fear
them, and women will be so mesmerized with their prophetic
knowledge that they will drop their britches at the first sign of
a winking emoticon.
Until then, let's only pray for our country's sake that it can
find 1 million people who would have also punched Snooki in
the face before we run out of time.


Crappy Contract


Everyone knows about
the Jay Leno/Conan
O'Brien mess on NBC
that left the latter kicked off
The Tonight Show after the
former was reinstated.
O'Brien was recently of-
fered the chance to appear
on another network, but a
fear of his fans and support-
ers has prompted NBC to
keep him off TV until April
21. Although O'Brien has
been in talks with Fox Broad-
casting Co. about a possible
talk show, he was recently
approached to appear on
American Idol's charity
show, "Idol Gives Back."
But NBC's contract with
O'Brien bans him from tele-
vision for another month.
We can't help but see this
as a desperate push from
NBC to cover up the awk-
wardness of January's whole
Late Night debacle. We un-


derstand NBC's reluctance
to have another network
plop O'Brien opposite Leno
and see who has the most
fans, but barring him from
the airwaves even for charity
events is a little extreme.
Even if you don't find
O'Brien's antics terribly
amusing, it is still obvious
that NBC's handling of the
situation was most unfair to
the man who was promised
the job of a lifetime and then
quietly paid to step down.
The refusal to allow
O'Brien on television until
this "blows over" is not mak-
ing NBC look any smoother.
O'Brien, on the other hand,
seems to be dealing fairly
well. In his free time he is
planning a 30-city tour called
the "Legally Prohibited from
Being Funny on Television
Tour." It's good to know
someone's laughing.

Column

We should appreciate ephemerality


Idug out my high school yearbook from senior year
during the end of Spring Break. It was a combina-
tion of impending graduation wistfulness coupled
with a "what's past is prologue!"-induced search for
anything that can assuage just how freaked out I am
about that impending graduation. And then I discov-
ered something: I was really, really terrible at predict-
ing with whom I'd still be friends after high school.
I know that everybody's kind of bad about predicting that
sort of thing, especially folks in high school.
And I also know that sentimentalism runs high dur-
ing yearbook-signing time, so people have a tendency to
slather on the declarations of BFF-dom and pleas to keep
in touch a little bit more liberally than they otherwise
would. But it was still pretty surprising to see how woe-
fully wrong we often were.
Someone who talked about how great it was that we've
gotten a chance to get to know each other for the past few
years, and how every time I'm back in town we're defi-
nitely going to have to hang out? I'm pretty sure the last
time I heard from him was a mass "Happy Turkey Day!"
text in 2007. Someone who wrote, with unnerving sincer-
ity, "Joe, you're a douche bag, and I'm glad you're leav-
ing"? She's become one of my closer friends. Though, to
be fair, she's made it clear that her opinion about my pur-
ported douchebaggery hasn't changed; she's just not quite
as glad that I'd left.
I don't mean to assign too much significance to a
personal artifact from four years ago. You can find
all manner of meaning and draw all sorts of paral-
lels that don't actually exist when you go diving into
stuff from a transitional time, like finishing high school,
while in a transitional time, like finishing college.
But one parallel I do think is legitimate is how, in both


S cases, I spent a fair amount of time
worrying over who would still be in
my life after four years. Or even af-
ter a year. Or even just after we step
out of the graduation ceremony.
People have only so much time
Joe Dellosa and emotional energy, and bridg-
letters@alligatororg ing geography is a trying task even
for the most committed of friends.
Which is daunting, a little discouraging and re-
sulted in me telling one of my friends, point-blank
and very awkwardly, that I really want to be her
friend after graduation. It was as lame as it sounds.
But I don't think it's productive to measure a friendship's
worth by its longevity.
Not every relationship is meant to be permanent, and
those that aren't can still be some of the most meaning-
ful and resonant. In fact, one might even argue that the
transience of some connections is part of what gives them
value.
Friendship is predicated on the idea that at most points
in your life, it's nice to have someone who keeps you sane,
who makes you laugh, who puts you at ease not just
because they get you, but because they get you and seem
willing to put up with you too. Being friends means that
you're willing to be that someone for at least a little bit -
and yes, sometimes, it really is just a little bit.
That's not a call to bemoan the ephemerality of all
things or to be paralyzed by the thought of future sadness.
Rather, I'm taking it as an urgent little nudge to appreci-
ate even the temporary things and maybe smile a little bit
more at present happiness.

Letters to the Editor
GDI's should shed graphic T-shirts,
jorts
CJ Pruner's column published Monday
was a shameless attempt at Greek-bashing
in what he described as, "some hippie
rag of a newspaper." But, while we're in
the spirit of critiquing others' wardrobes,
there are some pressing matters I'd like to
address.
Many of you may have noticed hair
beginning to grow in new and unfamiliar
places and a strange almost scary at-
traction to those "cootie-ridden" females.
It's called manhood, boys.
Lose the graphic tees with cute mes-
sages on them (along with those hideous
jorts that should have stayed in the '90s),
and try wearing a little Guy Harvey/Polo
shirt once in a blue moon.
Heck you might find that wearing
pastels every now and then might just
lighten your mood. And who knows, it
may even get you laid.
One more thing: My Sperry Top-Siders

Medicare, or make more than $200,000 a

Other than an individual mandate, what
it does throw our generation is the ability
to stay on our parents' plan until the age

harder to answer.
Estimates are that the $940 billion bill
will reduce the federal deficit by around
$150 billion over 10 years. Republicans ar-
gue that this does not include a $300 mil-
lion "doctor fix" that makes up for reduc-
tion in Medicare physician reimbursement.
However, that's another column. Suffice it
to say that, come November, we'll see if
Americans are on Team Democratic "baby

cans.

Magazine gives M.B.A. program 'excellent' rating


The Economist ranked distance-learning programs


By BRANDON BRESLOW
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF's Internet M.B.A. program is one of
two in the world to earn a rating of "excel-
lent" in The Economist's "Distance-learn-
ing special 2010."
The Internet M.B.A. program, taught
under the Hough Graduate School of Busi-
ness, allows students to earn their Mas-
ter of Business Administration degree
through a one- or two-year program with
classes taught predominantly online.


The ratings, which came out in late
February, were based on the program's
content, the quality of the students admit-
ted and the quality of the technology and
methods used for distance learning.
"We are very proud of the 'excellent'
rating by The Economist magazine, par-
ticularly because much of the rating comes
directly from student feedback on the pro-
gram," said Alex Sevilla, assistant dean
and director of M.B.A. programs for War-
rington College of Business Administra-
tion.


UF received perfect 100 ratings in pro-
gram content and effectiveness of the dis-
tance-learning elements
but received a rating of
"good" rather than excel-
lent in the magazine's as-
sessment of the quality of
the students.
"UF was one of the
Sevilla first top business schools
to produce a distance-
based M.B.A. program, and that experience
equates to program strength via teaching


quality, technology advancements and ad-
ministrative excellence," Sevilla said.
Daniel Muzzarelli, a 26-year-old finan-
cial consultant from Deerfield Beach said
he has had a positive experience since he
enrolled in UF's Internet M.B.A. program
in January.
"The university has put an unimagi-
nable amount of thought into every aspect
of the program experience," Muzzarelli
said. "The classes are extremely demand-
ing and authentic to what I would imagine
a traditional program to be. I didn't think I
would get such a quality education from a
distance-learning program."

Sam said his dad and brother
were alike in their ability to easily

Tom did not prejudge people
and was an easy person to get along
with, Sam said.
"He took everybody at face val-
ue," Sam said.
His international upbringing
did not prevent Tom from keeping
his friends close.
He made a strong effort to main-
tain his friendships and check up
on the people he cared about, Sam
said.
Maggie Lawrence, a UF jour-
nalism senior, met Tom in a high
school photography class and had
just reconnected with him a few
weeks before Spring Break.
"I know he was really proud
and happy to be accepted into UF,"
Lawrence said.
Lawrence said Tom was just a
typical young guy. He was very
laid-back and fun, she said.
"The most noticeable thing
about him is he is just really sweet,"


Lawrence said.
Sam said Tom was also a moti-
vated student.

tossed around a football with his
brother.
Michelle Legaspi, a UF chemis-
try senior and high school friend
of Tom's, said Tom also made
spoof films of music videos and TV
shows.
Since hearing about the acci-
dent, she has been watching some
of videos.
"He was one of the quieter ones,
but he was always pretty funny,"
Legaspi said.
Legaspi said Tom's friends are
still in shock after hearing about the
bizarre and tragic accident.
"A lot of us are reminiscing
about high school and the old days
and how it used to be," Legaspi
said.
Sam remembers a more recent
trip to Key West that he took with
Tom and a friend last summer.
They went to a small bar and
sang a karaoke rendition of "Hotel
California."
"For me, looking back on it, that
was a really special time for me, just
spending time with my brother,"
Sam said.


The bill requires states to create health care exchanges to compare rates


BILL, from page 1


Republicans did.
The president is expected to sign the bill
later this week and then try to promote it
to the public. But Griffin said he doesn't
think Obama will be able to make the bill
popular.
"You can't sell a failure one way or the
other," he said.
But many Americans already view this
bill as a success.


Ben Cavataro, Florida College Demo-
crats' president, was watching C-SPAN
with a group of excited friends as the House
voted.
"There was a sense it was a historic mo-
ment," Cavataro said. "The bill provides
stability for Americans with insurance,
provides insurance for those without it and
reduces the deficit."
Cavataro said he still believes Congress
should consider a public option.
"No bill is perfect, particularly one this


big in magnitude," he said. "But while it's
not perfect, it will provide health care to
millions of Americans."
Allyson G. Hall, research director for
UF's Center for Medicaid
National and the Uninsured, said she
News was disappointed the pub-
lic option wasn't included
in the final bill, but she still believes the
legislation will increase coverage for the
uninsured.
The bill requires states to create health


care exchanges for customers to compare
rates.
It also expands Medicaid to include
those making up to 133 percent of the pov-
erty threshold, expanding coverage to indi-
viduals making up to $14,403 or a family of
four making up to $29,326.
But Hall wasn't sure if the bill would
make insurance cheaper for those who have
coverage already.
"In theory it's supposed to, but I don't
know," she said.

Red Mango to join list of


Gainesville froyo shops


* GAINESVILLE WILL HAVE 10
FROZEN YOGURT SHOPS.

By TYLER JETT
Alligator Writer

Bernadette Castro and her family were
told they could open a frozen yogurt shop
anywhere in the state.
Castro, a UF alumna and former New
York politician, told Red Mango executives
Gainesville is the place to be.
"I was a Chi Omega there, I participated
in Gator Growl as a performer the whole
thing," said Castro, who splits time living in
Ocala and New York. "I just loved the fact
that there is this city within a city that never
sleeps."
Construction began Sunday, and the
store is expected to open the second week of
May. Red Mango, located at 3333 SW 34th
St., will be next to Plato's Closet.
With its opening, Red Mango will give
local frozen yogurt lovers yet another op-
tion.
Gainesville already has three TCBYs,


two Yogaberrys, a Mochi and a Lollicup.
Mochi executives are in the process of
bringing two more franchises to Gainesville,
meaning the city will have 10 frozen yogurt
shops in the coming months.
"People are looking for a guilt-free treat,"
Castro said of the boom in frozen yogurt
stores. "And I think they want something,
unlike ice cream, that doesn't make you feel
full."
Castro said she hopes to make Red
Mango the "Starbucks
Around of frozen yogurt." At
Gainesville 2,000 square feet, the
Gainesville shop will be
the largest of Red Mango's 67 locations.
The Gainesville location will have a spe-
cial study area, wireless Internet access for
students and a Mango Pit, an area where
musicians can perform.
"It will be a neat environment for kids
to hang out," said Terri Keogh, Castro's
daughter and co-owner of the shop.
Customers will be able to vote on which
12 flavors of yogurt the shop will carry on
Red Mango's soon-to-be launched Face-
book page.


County proposes uniforms


By SAMANTHA DELGADO
Alligator Contributing Writer

The School Board of Alachua County
released a proposal on Monday for man-
datory uniforms in its schools.
Board members have discussed the
possibility of mandatory uniforms for
years, and five schools in Alachua County
already have them, according to public in-
formation officer Jackie Johnson.
"They've seen a big drop off in the
number of distractions in school," Johnson
said about those five public schools.
Principal Leonard Weiss of the A.
Quinn Jones Center said uniforms take
away the competition kids have among
each other.
"What we're doing is basically plac-
ing the focus on education," Weiss said.
"That's the major reason for us. We want
kids to understand that school is a busi-
ness like anywhere else, that it's a serious
place."
A. Quinn Jones already has a similar


dress code, but it might be stepping it up
in the 2010-2011 school year to comply
with the new proposal.
Johnson said the uniforms will consist
of plain polo shirts in limited colors and
khaki or dark blue pants.
"We want kids to understand
that school is a business like
anywhere else, that it's a seri-
ous place."
Leonard Weiss
Principal of the A. Quinn Jones Center

Those who are unable to purchase the
school uniforms will be encouraged to
contact their principals.
According to the policy, principals will
have to set up a uniform donation pro-
gram with the help of the school board.
The proposal will be decided on in
May, according to Johnson.
The full proposal can be viewed at
sbac.edu.

Thompson to lead receiving corps

0 UF IS EXPECTED TO PASS

Deonte Thompson came to Flor-

recruits in the 2007 class, but three
years later, he still hasn't produced

Thompson spent the first two
seasons waiting for his chance to

The redshirt junior finished
with 24 catches for 343 yards and
four touchdowns, but never had
more than five receptions or 66
yards in any one game.
With receivers Riley Cooper,
Brandon James and David Nelson
all graduating, Thompson will be
the only returning wideout with
much game experience.
"He has to be the man. He has
to develop into being the X re-

"Him and Carl Moore have to

numbers, but it's time Deonte be-

Doublespeak: Reading between the lines at Florida's spring practice

Transfers leave


UF in uncertainty

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@alligator org

Amanda Butler's third season as head coach of the UF wom-
en's basketball team wasn't the charm she was looking for.
A year after a second-round NCAA Tournament loss to
eventual-champion Connecticut, the Gators (15-17, 7-9 South-
eastern Conference) failed to make the Big Dance this year and
settled for the Women's National Invitation Tournament.
Different tournament, same story: a second-round exit.
"I'm proud of this team to make it back to the postsea-
son with a lot of adversity with injuries and switching roles
around," Butler said. "That's the message the returners will be
transferring: this is not the end of the season we want."
And some of Butler's players have decided to transfer, leav-
ing the program on precarious ground for
next season.
SIn addition to the five seniors departing,
three underclassmen are leaving the pro-
Women's gram.
Basketball Sophomore Trumae Lucas, who made
the All-SEC freshman team last year, fresh-
man Tessah Holt, who shared time with se-
nior Lonnika Thompson at point guard, and Christal Caldwell,
who played just 5.6 minutes per game, will all seek playing
time elsewhere.
The abrupt transfers may scare away recruits and could pose
a problem for Butler's coaching staff as it leaves only six return-
ing players next year and just one guard Jordan Jones.
Butler still has work to do on the recruiting trail though,
and according to ESPN's HoopGurlz, the Gators have the No.
21-ranked class.
"We'll have a few different [recruits], that's their strength:
put the ball in the hole," Butler said. "It's no secret we had a
very disappointing shooting year. They can see how immedi-
ate their impact is going to be."
The Gators will most likely rely on an inside tandem of cen-
ters Azania Stewart and Jennifer George, who replaced Stewart
while she was out with a stress fracture in her ankle and was
named to the All-SEC Freshman team, to lead them back to the
NCAA Tournament next season.

a little bit, and it seemed when I got
back after the two games, the quar-
terback forgot about me," Thompson
said.
But with a new quarterback in John
Brantley and a new receivers coach in
Zach Azzanni, Thompson gets a new
start.
Brantley taking over as the starting
quarterback for the Gators will likely
result in more of an emphasis on the
passing game next season, as he is
known as more of a pure passer than
Tim Tebow was.


Azzanni brings a different coach-
ing style than Billy Gonzales, which
could be just what Thompson needs to
emerge as UF's go-to receiver.
"It's always good to get a fresh
start for some people
sometimes, and some
of these guys needed
Football a fresh start," Azzanni
said. "Every coach has
their own style and phi-
losophy, and I think I brought some
things they hadn't heard before and
maybe a different way of teaching the
same things than coach Gonzales did,
and that kind of put the shockers on
their heart and got them going again."

but he'll come up and pass it to you. You just
have to be ready. With (John) Brantley, every-
thing's with rhythm, with time. You know, a
real quarterback."
Translation: "Tim is a damn good football
player, but I'm sick of blocking."
Actual quote from running backs coach
Stan Drayton, who held the same position
at UF before leaving to take the same job at
Tennessee and then Syracuse: "I've said this
before, there was never a loss of respect. I've
always had the utmost respect for what this
program is all about: hard work, relentless ef-
fort."


Translation: "Do you know how cold it is
in upstate New York in the fall?"
Actual quote from defensive line coach
Dan McCarney on waiting for Ronald Pow-
ell and Dominique Easley to arrive in the
fall: "We don't want to put too much empha-
sis on it and too much hope because I've seen
some examples of that where guys really fail
and it's a major disappointment."
Translation: "We're putting a lot of em-
phasis and hope on it."
Actual quote from wide receiver Deonte
Thompson: "Somebody's got to be (the guy).
Why not me, right?"
Translation: "I'm just as surprised as you
are."

Shooting Down Critics


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer
etorrens@allgator org

Steffi Sorensen stood at the free-
throw line.
Swish.
Took another shot.
Drained it.
She sank shot after shot, oblivi-
ous to the crowd around her, until
she was 10 for 10.
"I was pretending I was out
shooting hoops with my brother,"
the UF senior said. "I could prob-
ably write a book on the 500 things
you think before you go to the line.
I wish I could go 10 for 10 now,
gosh."
As a fifth-grade student, Sorens-
en wasn't eligible to win a trophy at
her older brother's middle school's
free-throw shooting competition,
but she was compensated with a
dwarfing North Carolina Antawn
Jamison jersey.
"It was huge on me then, but I
still have it," she said.
For the Jacksonville native, who
grew up with three sporting loves
- tennis, golf and basketball -
missing out on the trophy was a
typical snub for a player who took
a beating as a self-described thin
girl playing with boys. She came
out of high school as an unheralded
player and had a nomadic career
spanning three schools.

Making Boys Cry
Sorensen's love for her brother,
Eric, almost proved fatal once. As
an infant, Sorensen once witnessed
her brother jump in the pool.
"He jumped in, he could swim,"
her mother, Kirsten Sorensen, re-
called. "I guess she thought she
could too. She went right after him
and jumped in, and I had to jump in
and pull her out."
It didn't end in the deep end of


the pool either. Big brother started
playing basketball, and she started
around 4 years old at a hometown
basketball camp.
Founded as the Switzerland
Point Basketball Camp in the sum-
mer of 1995 with 18 kids, it has
since turned into the Steve Melgard
Camp, with turnouts of up to 300
campers in recent years.
"It's a competitive camp, and
that's what I tell them at the begin-
ning: 'Not everybody gets a tro-
phy,'" Melgard said.
But Sorensen wasn't everybody
- she received trophies. There
were times she'd come home with
more awards than her taller now
6-foot-4 more physically gifted
brother.
And it wasn't just her older
brother she was beating; it was the
whole camp.
Players are sorted into differ-
ent leagues based on age NBA,
Southeastern Conference and At-
lantic Coast Conference teams.
"She always wanted to be on
Florida's team," said Melgard.
Within their age divisions, the
kids played and worked at differ-
ent stations to develop fundamen-
tals, and Sorensen soon was play-
ing with the older, upper-division
boys and beating them.
"A lot of times she made the
boys cry," he said, partly because of
the notion of getting upended by a
meager girl who Melgard described
as "ruthless."
But the kids Sorensen was beat-
ing weren't the only ones with wa-
terworks.
The Sorensens look back on it
now and laugh, but more than once
Steffi would come home crying be-
cause Eric held her to such a high
standard as a teammate, and she
couldn't bear to disappoint him.
The two siblings were a basket-
ball tandem. When they were team-


mates, Eric the taller post player
- would go for a rebound and
chuck it to his smaller sister down
the court for an easy bucket.
"She felt like her brother was
counting on her to make the bas-
ket," Kirsten said. "If she got it and
she threw it to him in the post, she
expected him to make it too."
That toughness is echoed by
anyone close to Sorensen.

'Take it Back'
During a sixth-grade basketball
game, Sorensen leapt for a rebound
and was shoved to the ground. She
landed awkwardly and sprained
her right wrist.
The injury was a devastating
and eventual career-ending blow
to the then-promising tennis player
named after legend Steffi Graf.
"I wanted to be a tennis player,
that's what I wanted to do," said
Sorensen, even though she believes
she would have followed basket-
ball sooner or later. "I got hurt, and
I couldn't really do that anymore."
For the avid tennis player and
golfer, who lettered in both in ad-
dition to basketball in high school
despite the injury, it caused irrepa-
rable damage, and Sorensen still
hasn't regained full strength in her
right wrist.
During her stint at Santa Fe Col-
lege, she reinjured it and was side-
lined for two-and-a-half weeks,
during which she tried to teach her-
self how to shoot left-handed.
The left-handed shooting didn't
work out, but the flick of her right
wrist did. She has become a prolific,
right-handed, three-point shooter
- she has led her teams in three-
point shooting at each of her stops:
Florida Golf Coast, Santa Fe and
two years at UF. According to Mel-
gard, she became a "great" shooter

Sorensen overcame a lack of size to lead the Gators in scoring


STEFFI, from page 19
in her high-school days, when she
saw a shooting coach in Orlando.
"That's the first question I got
when she started to get successful,
is 'Can she beat you?'" said Eric,
who played at Santa Fe. "That, at a
younger age, is kind of offending.
She's a girl, blah, blah, blah. Now,
it's humbling for them to even
ask."
It seemed the only unconquer-
able opponent Sorensen faced was
off the court, from the cynical re-
cruiting world. Ironically, all her ac-
colades on the hardwood couldn't
salvage her in high school.
She hit a growth spurt in eighth
grade, and while the height came
- the physique never followed.
She heard college coaches' ad-
vice to put on 20 pounds. She did
weight training, played in weighed-
down vests, took boxing lessons in
the summer and attended the High
Intensity Training Center in Jack-


sonville. Even the swish of a net or the

rensen asked. "Maybe just inquire

Sorensen was pivotal in a tan-
talizing year where the No. 1
Eagles went undefeated until
the D-II national champion-
ship game, when they lost to
Southern Connecticut State.
She hit the shot that sent the
team to the championship.
Citing a desire to be closer to
home, along with an adamant re-
fusal to sit out a year per NCAA
transferring rules Sorensen
transferred to Santa Fe, once again
following in her brother's footsteps.
Playing at SFC gave her more of a
Gainesville audience, which made
it easier to walk on at UF for her
junior year.

minute more (31.2). A year after be-
coming an established three-point
threat, Sorensen has taken more
shots and ended up with lower
field-goal and three-point percent-
ages.
She has upped her rebounds to
6.3 boards per game and has been
a constant with 9.6 points per game
- good for the team leader this
year.
Once again, her effort and work
paid off, and although her senior
season didn't materialize the way
she envisioned, Sorensen doesn't
hold any grudges over her brother,
critics or competitors.
"Other sports didn't keep me
entertained like basketball did,"
Sorensen said. "I have a short atten-
tion span, so something that could
hold my attention was a good thing.
Eighteen years later, I guess it's
holding my attention fairly well."
It's certainly been more atten-
tion-grabbing for her than the
crowd watching a fifth grader shoot
freebies.
