Police investigate alleged GRU theft


The suspect is thought to have stolen tools, equipment


By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer
The recent arrest of a Gainesville Re-
gional Utilities employee has led to further
investigation by the Gainesville Police De-
partment.
Jason Breeden was arrested March 25
on charges of stealing thousands of dollars
worth of equipment and tools from the
Deerhaven plant.
Plant Manager Ali McDaniel contacted
police when he discovered that an expen-
sive welder had gone missing, along with
its three-wheel crate, while taking inven-
tory at the beginning of the year, accord-


ing to GPD Sgt. Greg Armagost.
According to Armagost, McDaniel said
the theft must have occurred sometime be-
tween Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 of last year.
Detective Mike Denmark said he heard
an employee, later identified as Breeden,
was involved in the theft and visited the
man at his home.
He found Breeden in possession of the
cart but not the welder itself, Armagost
said.
Denmark returned the next day with
warrants to search the home and arrest
Breeden.
The search turned up more stolen tools,
totaling about $5,000 to $6,000, Denmark


said.
Breeden was not home at the time of the
search because, after having heard of the
warrant that the police had issued for his
arrest, he had gone to the police depart-
ment in order to turn himself in, according
to Armagost.
Breeden spent the night in the Ala-
chua County Jail but posted
Special his $5,000 bond the following
Report day.
He has since been released,
he said.
Breeden has been charged with grand
theft and scheming to defraud, and po-
lice believe this was not a one-time occur-


rence.
Local police are currently conducting an
investigation as to whether or not others
were involved in the various thefts, what
else may have been stolen and the where-
abouts of the missing welder, according to
Armagost.
Police believe the thefts may go back
even further than October.
There is evidence that Breeden and
possibly others had been stealing and ac-
cumulating tools and equipment from the
Deerhaven plant for years, according to
Armagost.
Anyone who may have information
about the theft or the whereabouts of the
welder is asked to call Armagost at 352-
334-2487.


SPECIAL REPORT

City sees string


of window, car


burglaries
By KATHERINE BEIN
Alligator Writer
The Gainesville Police Department is asking students
to be careful valuables as there has been a string of win-
dow-smashing burglaries in student-dense areas.
According to GPD Sgt. Greg Armagost, there have
been eight such burglaries in the past two weeks at the
southwest student complexes alone.
"I know it's a pain, but take any valuables
out of your car."
Greg Armagost
GPD sergeant

Police are urging students to lock their doors at home
as well and be wary of door-to-door salespeople.
Last week, police arrested Zacquel Wisse, 20, from
Boston, for trying to break in through unlocked doors
at Fairmont Oaks after going door-to-door under the
pretense of selling magazine subscriptions. Wisse then
tried to enter the homes if no one answered, Armagost
said.
One woman watched through the peephole as Wisse
tried to break into her home, so she called police, Arma-
gost said. There were three window-smash burglaries at
Fairmont Oaks that day, but police can not link Wisse to
the crimes, he said.


UF receiver
Andre Debose went
through his first
full practice of the
spring Monday.
He'll be counted on
to play a major role
in the Gators' of-
fense after missing
2009 with injury.

The Gator Nation is
Everywhere
Becoming a ,.
part of The Gator
Nation has been a
big part of life for
my wife and me,
since we moved to
Gainesville in 2006.
Now, as dean of the
UF International
Center, I am par-
ticularly proud of David Sammons
the tag line to the
UF slogan, "The Foundation for The
Gator Nation."
This tag line states that "The Ga-
tor Nation is Everywhere." The UF
International Center is charged with
ensuring that this remains true. From
our significant numbers of international
graduates (residents of more than 100
countries) to the large cohort of inter-
national students (3,917 with homes
in 134 countries, at latest count) to the
number of countries (52) where more
than 2,000 UF students study abroad
annually, we really are everywhere.
Why, you might ask, is The Gator
Nation so internationally committed?
The simple answer is: Because it's the
right thing to do. We live in a world
that is so intimately interconnected
that a great institution cannot func-
tion responsibly without a significant
global commitment and we are a great
institution!
David Sammons
Dean, UF International Center

Dean of Students Jen Day Shaw (left), doesn't stop being productive during
her lunch break. She often eats with student groups.



Running with the Gators


Do you know who the dean of students is? If you're a student living on campus, she could
be your neighbor.
Jen Day Shaw, the new University of Florida dean of students, is so dedicated to her job
that she rarely leaves work. She exercises, dines and relaxes in an atmosphere surrounded
with students.
To get familiar with things fast, she decided to live on campus. According to Shaw, this
allows her to participate in more student events.
"It (living on campus) puts you right in the heart of things and makes it so much easier,"
Shaw said.
Although she has worked as the dean of students at other universities, including Univer-
sity of North Carolina at Greensboro and University of South Florida, this is her first time
working with such a large student body, she said.
The convenience and accessibility of living on campus helps when managing a university
crisis until 2 a.m., she said. "It's something different every day," she said, which is one of the
reasons she enjoys her job.
Even after working into the early-morning hours, she still manages to have energy to run
with ROTC students before dawn. Coming from a military family, Shaw has a great respect
for the group and uses the morning activity as another opportunity to familiarize herself with
students.
Impressed by the high involvement of UF students, Shaw finds attending student-group
meetings to be "uplifting," she said.
For this reason, she often eats lunch with students at daily events offering food. But, as
if dining, socializing and living in a student atmosphere weren't enough, Shaw also will be
teaching two student courses: First-Year Florida and a graduate course.
Shaw loves to teach, but her true calling lies in another aspect of her job.
"It is most fulfilling to help students in distress," she said. "I love that the best."

Atheist, theist to face off


* THE 'GREAT RELIGION DEBATE'
WILL FEATURE RELIGION EXPERTS.

By BRENTON BROWN
Alligator Contributing Writer

A great debate will take place tonight
at the Phillips Center for the Performing
Arts on a topic as old as Adam and Eve.
The Great Religion Debate will feature
writers Christopher Hitchens and Dinesh
D'Souza in an event similar to CNN's
Crossfire.
Hitchens and D'Souza will discuss
their views on atheism and theism.
The debate, which was co-sponsored
by the Graham Center for Public Service
and Accent, is free and open to the pub-
lic.
Accent chairman Jason Attermann
said all students are encouraged to come
out for the debate, whether their opin-
ions about religion are strong, neutral or


open.
"These two men are highly respected
individuals with strong, opposing opin-
ions about religion," he said. "It's going
to be a great show."
Hitchens, an atheist and author of
"God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons
Everything," was a col-
umnist for Vanity Fair,
The Nation and Slate
magazine and has cor-
responded from more
than 60 countries.
D'Souza, a theist and
author of "The End of
Hitchens Racism: Principles for
a Multiracial Society,"
was called one of the "top young public-
policy makers in the country" by Inves-
tor's Business Daily.
Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the
show will begin at 8 p.m.
Hitchens and D'Souza were collective-
ly paid $33,000, according to Accent.


AWARENESS

Neuroscience club kicks


off Brain Awareness Week


ByCJ PRUNER
Alligator Staff Writer

In an attempt to promote one of
the human body's most vital organs,
UF's Neuroscience Club kicked off its
Brain Awareness Week Monday.
The event will place a different fo-
cus on the mind for each day of the
week, from mental wellness to some
of the lesser-known functions of the
brain.
According to club president JiHee
Choi, the event represents a growing
interest in matters pertaining to the
brain.
She hopes that the week will help
raise awareness for students of all
fields of study.
"As students, it's an opportunity
to learn something outside the class-
room," Choi said. "A lot of people
may never take a neuroscience class,
but they need to know how to take


care of their brains."
Monday's theme focused on the ef-
fects of sleep, stress and exercise on
the brain.
"An inquisitive mind can learn
a lot."
JiHee Choi
UF Neuroscience Club president

Topics for the rest of the week will
include mental health, neuroanatomy
and creativity, among others.
The group will offer different ac-
tivities corresponding to the topics.
Although the official National
Brain Awareness Week was held last
month, Choi is confident students will
be receptive to the approach.
"An inquisitive mind can learn a
lot," she said.

That destructiveness, Frist said,

"We're not a socialized system,"

One of his sons was born while
he was living in England, and Frist
said he received "unbelievably

"We didn't have to pay any-
thing, which was amazing," he
said.
But Frist said there was a down-
side to England's socialized sys-
tem. He said very specialized care
for ailments like cancer was harder
to get, and patients have fewer op-
tions.
Dr. Nancy Hardt, an associate
dean at UF's College of Medicine,
said she thought Frist was very
moderate compared to the Repub-

She asked the senator a ques-
tion on doctors treating patients
with emphasis on value instead of
volume.
Frist said part of the health care
bill aimed at valuing outcomes
might give the government more
control, but overall he liked the

Playing It Safe

Housing department's

Nerf gun ban overkill
First it was the hippies and communist professors who
were corrupting our children's minds with radical
concepts such as gravity and the letter "Q." Then it
was those damn femi-Nazis who wanted to turn our prom
queens into jezebels who choke down birth control pills like
Skittles.
Now, university authorities are trembling at the possibil-
ity of a new breed of monster that just may rob this campus
of its innocence Nerf guns.
Luckily for all of God's children out there, our heroes at
the Department of Housing and Residence Education, the
same people who masterfully lead us through the darkest of
fire drills and the most dire of alcohol checks, have the cour-
age to stand up to these cold, heartless half-dead bastards.
Could you imagine the horror if one of these Turlington
warriors decides to pull a John Rambo by charging into a
classroom chock-full of children and spraying the place with
his or her foam artillery?
Combine the opening scenes of "Saving Private Ryan"
and "Gangs of New York" to a soundtrack of wailing and
gnashing of teeth and you have a slight grasp of the slaugh-
ter carnival that would ensue in such an ungodly scenario.
If you feel overwhelmed by those brave enough to combat
the undead, there's a crop of UPDs who could quench their
bloodthirst in between cracking stoner skulls at rock concerts
and putting the pieces together behind the who-pissed-be-
hind-the-Grog-House-Dumpster investigation.
As for the toy-toting titans, the beatings will continue un-
til morale improves.


3-D(on't)


What is the deal with
3-D?
James Cameron
makes "Avatar" and sud-
denly we think every movie
should be converted to it?
It's bad enough that the
ticket prices are higher for
something that, in certain
films, creates little more than
the vaguely cosmic feeling
of holding your hand out in
front of your face.
But with this current phase
in cinema being discussed
as something people would
have in their homes as a stan-
dard soon, we find ourselves
largely underwhelmed.
Changes in technology
don't always reflect a need
people have but should at
least display something bet-
ter than what people have al-
ready seen.
While "Avatar" was filmed
with new equipment caus-
ing something of a difference,
films like Tim Burton's "Al-


ice in Wonderland" and the
newly released "Clash of the
Titans" remake were filmed
as 2-D movies and converted
to 3-D.
The effect?
Most of the backgrounds
are blurry because the direc-
tors didn't film them for 3-D,
thus projecting a beautiful
image of blurriness that looks
somewhat closer to us. We are
all for new ideas and relevant
technology, but the recent
3-D movie trend is neither of
these.
Although it seems we're in
the minority, we hate to think
about what this trend will do
to the cost of films and the

Column

In love, actions speak louder than words


think it's fair to say there are few phrases in the English
language that are more emotionally loaded than "I love
you." For that matter, it's probably fair to say there are
few phrases that are more regularly abused and misused
than those three words.
That's not a particularly bold statement to make, I know.
After all, people talk about how the language of love has
been cheapened by all aspects of our culture: lyrics to banal
pop songs that use the phrase for its rhymability; movies
and TV shows that render every expression of affection as
an embarrassing cliche; and advertising that reduces the
phrase to a cute, manipulative coda to a jewelry commercial
or a wireless carrier.
Others may decry how overused the word "love" is.
They argue that we whip out the word in all manner of situ-
ations I love this infomercial! I love this YouTube video! I
love eating at Chili's! so much that it throws into question
just how meaningful being the recipient of an "I love you"
could possibly be: "I'm really glad you love me and all, but
you said the same thing about an Awesome Blossom yes-
terday, so I really don't know what to do with that."
Even when an "I love you" is directed at someone whom
you actually love, the phrase can have a tendency to become
meaningless through reflexivity the sort of unthinking "I
love yous" that come at the end of phone calls or e-mails.
Worse still, an "I love you" can all too easily just be-
come shorthand for something entirely different, like, "I'm
tired of arguing, and I want to end this conversation, but I
still think you're wrong." Or, "I kind of want to have sex
tonight, and I think this is what you want to hear." Or, "I
want something from you, and maybe me saying this will
make you feel guilty enough to give it to me." Or, "I don't
actually love you, but I'm willing to pretend because maybe
if I say it enough, it'll magically become true." (Just a heads
up: it doesn't.)
However, not using the phrase can be just as bad as using


S it too often. Perhaps as a response to
the alacrity with which some people
dole out "I love yous," others may
feel compelled to guard their use of
the phrase with overzealous caution,
as though they've got a finite number
Joe Dellosa of them to hand out.
letters@alligator org But I'd argue that not saying it
also cheapens the phrase by setting
nonexistent or unrealistic restrictions
on who gets to hear it. Do you care about someone in a
deep, personal, substantial way and act accordingly? Does
it make you happy to see them happy? Do they draw out a
more selfless, more understanding part of you? Well, damn
- that might be love, and withholding an "I love you," at
least anecdotally, has a tendency to be among the things
people most regret.
All this is to say, I think we sometimes have a strange
relationship with the phrase "I love you." Some of this may
be over-thinking it; it is, after all, just three words, and like
over-analyzing a joke, dissecting them with too much inten-
sity could kill the spirit of it.
But it's worth at least some examination, because how
we use the phrase "I love you" can be a reflection of what
we mean when we say we love someone. To be sure, loving
someone means something more than just feeling strongly;
there's a reason words like "crush" exist, after all.
Love isn't so much felt as it is demonstrated, and that's
maybe the best guidance for determining the role of "I love
yous": they're not just meant to be cavalierly thrown out,
but saying it shouldn't earn a breaking news chyron or any-
thing.
Ideally, all an "I love you" should be is a quiet affirma-
tion, spoken aloud, of what your actions already made
clear.

Letters to the Editor
Column about Catholic Church sex
scandal misses mark
Paul Murty made several appalling
claims in his column last Friday. First, he
claimed there were "pretty valid reasons"
for the cover-ups of sexual abuse. The only
reason he gave is a shortage of priests. Is that
a reason to cover up child sex abuse? What
about a teacher shortage? Then he claimed
"people seem to think that these problems
are only in the Catholic Church," implicitly
blaming the media for the misconception.
The truth is that the general media enthu-
siastically covers sex abuse cases stemming
from relatives, educators, community lead-
ers, doctors, etc. Justice is regularly served
to those offenders; priests have evaded
justice with help from their church superi-
ors. Also, his only cited source comes from
a book written by a conservative Catholic
apologist, Philip Jenkins, in 1996. It is there-
fore irrelevant to the scandals that have
since emerged. The media investigations of
child sex abuse cover-ups within the Catho-
lic Church have led to legal investigations,
punishment for robed sex offenders, reme-
diation to victims and changes in national
education policies.
The church has gone to lengths to pro-
tect robed sex abusers time and time again.
Murty would rather the media show fair-
ness to religions by covering scandals of
this nature for a week, per religion. The vic-
timization of countless children has been ig-
nored by the church hierarchy for decades.
Sustained media coverage is absolutely
warranted, commendable and necessary to
prevent further abuses.


Zombie editorial disappointing
I am disappointed by the stance the Edito-
rial Board took in Monday's editorial "Zombie
Nation." Humans vs. Zombies is just a master
game of tag that unites all different kinds of
students across UF's campus in a game that
makes the boring walk to class more interest-
ing for a week.
I am nowhere near a socially inept child-
hood comic nerd, as you have stereotyped ev-
eryone playing this game, and yet I find this
game rather entertaining.
Non-players are ignored and are perfectly
welcome to watch or ignore those who do
play.
Attempting to draw a parallel between the
Humans vs. Zombies players and Turlington
preachers and annoying activists is a worth-
less comparison.
Humans vs. Zombies is played on college
and university campuses across the nation.
This is the first semester it has come to UF,
and the game earlier this semester was a short
trial run.
There are more than 1,000 students regis-
tered and playing this week, which shows an
obvious interest from our UF student body.
That, coupled with the fact that a freshman
has managed to organize and launch a cam-
pus-wide game drawing the interest of more
than 1,000 students during his second semes-
ter, is admirable, and should earn the support
of our beloved Alligator.
Or, at the very least, it should curb blatant
criticism.

Guest column

Students should take stand


was standing on Turlington Plaza
Monday with some members of
the Coalition for Justice Against
Police Brutality, telling students
walking by about the shooting of Kofi
Adu-Brempong by the University Po-
lice Department. As we were handing
out fliers for today's protest, a girl
stopped me and asked me about the
incident. To no fault of her own, she
said she hadn't heard anything about
it and wanted to know how UPD
could possibly shoot an international
student on campus.
I started telling her about how Adu-
Brempong a geography instructor
who lived in Corry Village had his
door broken into by the UPD-equiva-
lent of a SWAT team. Once the officers
broke in, they shot him three times
with a beanbag gun capable of knock-
ing over a full-sized cow, twice with
UPD's infamous weapon of choice -
a Taser and was then shot in the
face with an M-4 assault rifle. I didn't
have to tell her that the shots had de-
stroyed half of Adu-Brempong's jaw,
upper-palette and tongue before her
eyes started to well up with tears.


Dave Schneider This girl's re-
Speaking Out action affected
me in a way I
haven't felt for
some time. As she asked "How could
they do this?" I realized just how
wrong Vice President of Student Af-
fairs Patricia Telles-Irvin was when
she insultingly told the coalition that
it didn't have the support of the Stu-
dent Body. Most students understand
an injury to one Gator is an injury to
the entire Gator Nation, evidenced by
the thousands of students who signed
a petition demanding that all charges
against Adu-Brempong be dropped,
along with the 400 students, faculty
and community members who came
out to the last protest.
Today on Turlington Plaza at 4
p.m., students will be marching again
to demand that the administration
and UPD end this heinous example of
injustice. Come out and fight back to
win justice for Adu-Brempong and to
make sure this atrocity never happens
again.

and history sophomore.

CITY COMMISSION

Commissioners support urbanization investments


By OLGA VELEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

City commissioners decided to sup-
port private investment in Five Points,
a small urbanized area of the city,
and land along Hawthorne Road in a
Community Development Committee
meeting Monday.
"We are not seeing enough private
investment," said City Commissioner
Thomas Hawkins.
Hawkins said if the city used pub-
lic money for funding, it would be
cheaper for private investors to invest
because they wouldn't have to spend
as much money on public utilities.
The decision came after serious
debate between city commissioners
Craig Lowe and Scherwin Henry over
whether to limit the development to
Five Points or expand it to include the
area along Hawthorne Road.
Lowe argued that the focus should
be limited to the development of Five
Points in order to "get something that
will develop close residential commu-
nities with heightened and focused re-
development strategies in mind."
Instead of trying to improve a
broad area, Lowe felt the greatest suc-


cess could be achieved by focusing on
improving the investment in one area.
Henry disagreed because he felt
there was a greater potential for in-
vestment in the area along Haw-
thorne Road, with companies such as
Food Lion, a retail grocery store, and
GTECH, an information technology
company, to entice investors.
"They (the companies and the de-
partment) will have needs to be met
enticing private
investors," Henry
said.
Although Com-
munity Development
Committee chairman
Hawkins originally
Hawkins agreed with Lowe,
after a half-hour of
consideration, both Lowe and Hawk-
ins decided to consider both invest-
ments simultaneously.
The next step, Hawkins said, is ex-
amining three possible programs that
could help fund this project: Eastside
Community Redevelopment Agency,
Connect Free and College Park.
The Community Development
Committee will meet again May 27 to
pick a program.

RecSports to take class reservations


Students can reserve with a fee


By KARINA LISENBEE
Alligator Contributing Writer

This fall, being turned away
from full exercise classes will be a
thing of the past for a price.
RecSports will be offering Pre-
mium Group Fitness classes to
tackle overcrowding next fall. Stu-
dents will have the opportunity to
pay a small fee to be registered in
classes, which will be offered at the


renovated Southwest Recreation
Center.
"Smaller group training in spec-
ified formats will not only get rid of
waiting, but it will
Health & also allow progress
FitneSS to be tracked," said
Meaghan O'Dwyer,
graduate assistant for group fitness.
"It's a medium between personal
training and group fitness."
The prices have not been deter-


mined yet for the classes, O'Dwyer
said.
"Students usually try to beg for
a way to get a number," said Brian
Rose, operations associate for RecS-
ports. "They try to tell me to make
one more number, but I can't make
exceptions."
Haley Olsen, a freshman, said
that she would sign up for Premi-
um Group Fitness classes to save
herself time.
"It'd be nice not to have to come
so early," Olsen said.


Site ranks schools


based on texting


* THE SITE IS INSPIRED BY
'TEXTS FROM LAST NIGHT.'

By GWEN RAHN
Alligator Contributing Writer

After debate over which uni-
versity is the No. 1 party school,
some UF students have developed
their own ways of deciding.
Five students launched par-
tyschooltexts.com, an interactive
Web site similar to textsfromlast-
night.com that will allow users
to vote for the No. 1 party school
starting March 23.
The Web site lists text message
conversations categorized by
universities and gives viewers a
chance to vote on their favorites.
The most popular posts will help
determine the ranking.
"It's ridiculous how the same
company who produces SAT
reviews also does party school
rankings," said Nick Gilboy, one
of the creators. "College students
know much more about party-
ing than the Princeton Review
does."
Gilboy, 22, and Alex Baden,
21, came up with the idea two
months ago after believing texts-
fromlastnight.com was mislead-
ing viewers with the use of area
codes.
"College students rarely have
phone numbers with the same
area codes as their college town,"
Baden said. "Their school doesn't
get credit for all the crazy things


that happen."
In collaboration with Kevin
Ruiz, Sunil Tangri and Tony Fe-
ria, Gilboy and Baden equally
financed the $1,000 start-up fee
and hired a Web designer for the
site's design and coding.
"At this point, we aren't ask-
ing for ads or trying to make a
profit," said Ruiz, who controls
the marketing aspect with Feria.
"We are trying to create an en-
tertainment service for college
students. It is interesting to see
what school they think is really
No. 1."

"It's ridiculous how the
same company who pro-
duces SAT reviews also
does party school rank-
ings."
Nick Gilboy
co-creator of tyschooltexts.com

The Web site has already re-
ceived about 1,000 unique views,
but the creators are hoping word
of mouth will increase popularity
out of state.
All five members plan on stay-
ing in Gainesville after gradua-
tion in May to concentrate on the
new business, and they hope the
site matches the level of texts-
fromlastnight.com.
"We are trying to add a level
of accountability to schools who
claim they party hard," Ruiz
said.

Disney representatives to recruit interns on campus


By MATTHEW RIVA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Disney representatives will be on cam-
pus today looking for students who want
to make a career at the happiest place on
Earth.
During their first day on UF's campus
Monday, Disney recruiter Mel Morales
and several internship alumni presented
in Pugh Hall for about an hour on the ben-
efits of the Disney College Program.
The program is an internship available
to college students 18 or older at either


Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland
Resort.
Students who are selected to partici-
pate can live on-site for four to six months,
earning credits and getting paid work ex-
perience in the process.
In addition to working, members can
also take classes created specifically by
Disney for the program.
Disney's representatives discussed their
experiences and how they were able to do
the program and remain full-time students
with Bright Futures or other scholarships.
Many, including Morales, mentioned


"When you go for an internship,
you want a company big enough to
give you exposure to move later-
ally."
Mel Morales
Disney recruiter
benefits to working with Disney.
"When you go for an internship, you
want a company big enough to give you
exposure to move laterally," Morales said.
Morales said interns receive a number


of perks, including free admission to the
Walt Disney theme parks and discounts
for friends and family.
After the presentation, Morales and the
representatives met with students to dis-
cuss potential roles in the internship.
Students must be enrolled at UF or
graduating soon to be eligible.
Disney employs more than 65,000 peo-
ple in more than 2,000 roles in its Orlando
location alone.
For more information, students can at-
tend today's presentation at 7:20 p.m. in
the Pugh Hall Ocora.

ACTIVISM

Students to rally


to support shot


graduate student

By ELIZABETH BEHRMAN
Alligator Writer

A rally calling for justice for graduate student Kofi
Adu-Brempong will take place today from 4 p.m. to 7
p.m. on Turlington Plaza.
More than 400 students are expected to meet and
march to Tigert Hall and the University Police Depart-
ment, said Dave Schneider, an organizer of the event.
Schneider said the group will present a list of de-
mands to the administration, including
dropping the criminal charges against
Adu-Brempong and eliminating UPD's
Critical Response Team.
He said the main purpose of the pro-
test is to get the administration to stop
ignoring the students, drop the charges
and take radical action against police
Sikes brutality.
"Our goal is obviously to get all of
the demands met," Schneider said.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said university officials
are ready to welcome the students at both UPD and Ti-
gert Hall.
However, Sikes said officials are restricted in what
they can discuss with students until the results of the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation
are released.
"We urge some patience at this time," Sikes said.


Students to paint orgasms on T-shirts


* THE EVENT IS PART OF
MONTH.


PRIDE AWARENESS


By NICOLE FLIKIER
Alligator Contributing Writer

What does an orgasm look like?
Students can gather on Wednesday to express their ideas
on a blank T-shirt during Paint Your Orgasm, an event of
Pride Awareness Month.
This event is co-sponsored by LGBT Affairs, Voices for
Planned Parenthood and the county health department.
Jose Tebar, director for Paint Your Orgasm, said aside from


the T-shirt painting, students will be able to get more comfort-
able with sexuality.
"Straight people have as much right to celebrate their sex-
uality as the gay community," Tebar said. "Our event is about
celebrating the things we have in common, not the things that
separate us."
On Tebar said free HIV testing will be offered on
Campus the North Lawn from 10 a.m. to 2p.m.
Sparkle Antoinette, 22, who dresses as a drag
queen on weekends, thinks the safe-sex aspect is important.
"I love the idea that I get to show my version of sex in such a
fun and creative way," Antoinette said.
Tebar said he expects about 200 people to attend.

Debose participates in practice


* THE RECEIVER MISSED
LAST SEASON DUE TO A
HAMSTRING INJURY.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

Florida is still searching for its
offensive identity, but the Gators
got a step closer to figuring it out
Monday.
Redshirt freshman receiver An-
dre Debose participated in team
drills for the first time since the
hamstring surgery that caused him
to miss the 2009 season.
"It feels good. He's a heck
of a player, fast as can be,
and I'm just happy to see
him back out here running
around. ... He's only going
to get faster, so that's a
plus."
John Brantley
UF quarterback

The speedster from Sanford
Seminole High worked in the slot,
where he and running back Chris
Rainey hope to reprise the role Per-
cy Harvin played during his time at
UF.
Debose's progress will have a lot
to say about how potent Florida's
offense can be this season, and quar-
terback John Brantley was excited to
have his playmaker back.
"It feels good," Brantley said.
"He's a heck of a player, fast as can
be, and I'm just happy to see him
back out here running around. ...
He's only going to get faster, so
that's a plus.
"It's a little too early to tell, but
I'm hoping for big things from
him."
Debose, ranked the nation's No.
2 wideout by Rivals.com out of high
school in 2009, wasn't made avail-
able for interviews after practice,
and it's unclear how much of a role
he'll play in the team's spring game
Saturday.

ELAM SETTLES IN: After a roller-
coaster recruiting ride, Matt Elam
has found stability on the field.
He kept UF coach Urban Meyer


Harrison uiamona / Aingaior siari
Redshirt freshman receiver Andre Debose returned to practice Mon-
day after being held out of contact for most of the spring.


guessing throughout his recruit-
ment even switching to rival
Florida State shortly before National
Signing Day- but he's happy with
his decision to enroll at Florida in
January.
He says now the pictures of him
wearing a Seminoles jersey make
him "start getting sick to my stom-
ach," and feels bad about breaking
his initial commitment to Meyer.
"I was very confused," Elam
said. "I really didn't know what to
do. People thought I was playing
around, but I really wasn't. I want-
ed to do what was best for me, but


trying to make people happy and
everything, it was tough."
If Meyer was bothered by the
flip-flopping, he got over it quickly.
Meyer said Friday that Elam has
already earned the right to play in
the fall.
He has worked as a second-
string strong safety and starting
nickelback during spring practice,
as well as on all four special teams
units, though Elam said there's no
plan for him to see time on offense.
"Every team we've had, there's
always been a fresh who stepped up

I spent the better part of my adolescence rooting against
Coach K and the evil Blue Devils, but I couldn't root against
this team.
When Butler's sophomore sensation Gordon Hayward nar-
rowly missed a half-court winner, I ac-
tually felt happy for the Duke players.
They earned it.
The 2009-10 Blue Devils aren't a col-
lection of unlikable NBA talent, they're
a likable group of overachievers.

This game perfectly capped the sea-

The truth of the matter is: Butler is far from little.
The Bulldogs have been in the Sweet 16 three out of the last
eight seasons and won 25 straight games before finally falling

Gators look to pitcher

Brian Johnson used to keep
runs off the scoreboard.
But UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
is now calling on Johnson, a start-
ing pitcher, to contribute some
runs, too.
The freshman moonlighted as
UF's designated hitter last week-
end against Vanderbilt, leading the
Gators with five hits in the series.
Now, he will try to build on his
success at the plate tonight at 6:30
as No. 8 Florida hosts Jacksonville
in McKethan Stadium.
Johnson also drew three walks
in the Vanderbilt series, helping
him reach base on eight of 12 plate
appearances. O'Sullivan said he
will keep Johnson in the lineup un-
til the lefty struggles with his bat,


even if he has to pitch the same
day.
"I asked him in the pregame
meal if he wanted to hit and pitch
(Saturday)," O'Sullivan said. "His
eyes lit up and he said, 'Yeah.' I
said, 'OK, it's the same thing you've
been doing since high school.'"
Johnson hit
.551 with nine
home runs as a
senior at Cocoa

pulled Johnson after that pitch, but he stayed in

Being able to use his bat allowed him to shrug
off the pitching mistake.
"You have to have a short memory," Johnson

reer at UF in the '90s, Wilkerson split time at first
base, the outfield and on the mound.
The Gators' first three-time All-American hit
55 home runs and pitched in 75 games. He said he
could never sit out during practice because he was
involved in all facets of the game.
Likewise, Johnson has three sessions in the bat-
ting cage between pitching drills.
"It takes a lot of time and dedication to do
both," Wilkerson said. "Each and every day you
have to do extra stuff."
Players going both ways are rare today because
AAU coaches train them to focus on one position
at a young age, making Johnson's feat more im-
pressive, Wilkerson said.
"That's a special accomplishment," he said.
"Especially at the University of Florida, which has
such a good baseball program."



the Butler team that held mighty Duke to
61 points and 5-of-17 shooting from three-
point range was a product of sustained suc-
cess. Yet, as in any sport, it's important that
a team knows how to win when it comes
time for the biggest moments.
And no team or coach knows how to win
more than the Blue Devils and Coach K.
Duke ran through maybe the most di-
verse assortment of opponents' playing
styles in the Tournament, defeating slower-
tempo teams like Purdue, West Virginia
and Butler, and faster, more high-scoring
teams like Baylor and California.
Singler, Scheyer and Zoubek were the
poster boys for a Duke team that was never
quite as good as the teams that came before
it, but through all those previous early Tour-
nament losses, they learned how to win.
Perhaps that's why I can't bring myself
to hate them.

Even Hayward, who willed himself to

mightily during a 2-for-11 shooting perfor-

Duke representing the old major confer-
ence powers and Butler representing a new
wave of "mid-major" teams that are more
major than mid. Programs like Gonzaga,

Fifteen or 20 years ago, schools from
smaller conferences were capable of making
a run or two behind the right player who
inexplicably slipped through the cracks, but















By BRETT WILLIAMS
Alligator Contributing Writer
He was taught never to hit a woman.
He knew that if he ever rough-
housed or bullied his sister, he'd be
seeing the business end of his father's belt. So
he kept his hands to himself and grew up to
be a gentleman who opens doors and pulls
out chairs.
But when the ball hits the rim, a lifetime
of chivalry goes out the window. He forgets
his father's belt and the lessons learned as
he shoves the women aside to grab the re-
bound.
Nick Augello doesn't show any remorse
for the woman he just slammed to the ground
- that's his job.
And he knows it could be him who gets
tossed to the floor in the next go-around of
this free-for-all rebounding drill where three
women do their best to box out three guys in
the lane as the coaches lob up shots.
"I'll knock them in the mouth sometimes,
and they'll come back and get me the next
time," Augello said. "You know, whatever


it takes to get them better. There are a lot of
tough, physical teams out there, especially
in the Southeastern Conference, so we got to
get them ready."
Augello isn't the stereotypical meathead
who gets his kicks from posterizing chicks
in the co-ed intramural leagues. The busi-
ness management senior is a member of the
practice squad for the UF women's basket-
ball team.
He and 11 other guys make up a scout
team that did its best to push, punish and
prepare Florida for games this season, which
ended with a second-round loss in the Wom-
en's National Invitation Tournament for the
Gators (15-17).

Common Practice
It's well-known that women's teams use
men as practice players to help give their
players a high level of competition that re-
sembles game scenarios. Using male prac-
tice players allows coaches to challenge their
teams with bigger and better athletes while
also sparing their players from countless rep-
etitions on the practice floor.


Stephen H. Keys/ Alligator Staff
The men of the UF women's basketball team's practice squad (from left to right):
James West, Nick Augello, Travis Young, Stephen DeAngelo (dunking) Jason Hor-
ton, Mehdi Zolnoor and Justin Seitz.


"To be able to challenge your players
with individuals who in most instances have
a physical advantage, not just in size and
strength but also in vertical jump, that's what
you always want," UF coach Amanda Butler
said. "Most of the girls playing college grew
up playing against boys, and that's how they
got good enough to be Division I college ath-
letes. So it's just an extension of that."
The use of male practice players against
women has gone on since before Butler's
playing days in the early 1990s, though the
NCAA tried to do away with it in 2007, say-
ing it took away playing time and opportuni-
ties from other female athletes. It was also ar-
gued that it gave bigger schools an advantage
over smaller programs, which may not have
the ability to put together a practice team.
Butler, who had male practice squads when
she coached at smaller schools like Austin
Peay and UNC-Charlotte, doesn't buy it.
"My argument against that is if your op-
portunity in practice is being taken away by
a practice player, then you're not working
hard enough, and that is a problem there,"
Butler said. "If you're not valuable enough to
be used in practice then there's a gap some-
where in either how hard you're working or
your skill level."

All Guts, No Glory
The guys on Butler's squad aren't Divi-
sion I athletes and weren't recruited to play
big-time college basketball. Instead, they got
spotted by one of the coach's assistants while
playing intramurals or pick-up ball, or they
were brought along by a team member.
Other than a pair of basketball shoes, they
don't receive compensation or scholarship
money, and they certainly don't get the ac-
claim that goes with being a UF athlete.
"It's definitely a job where you get no glo-
ry," said Justin Seitz, a junior history major.
"Most practices we're playing defense most
of the time, but I'll take what I can get. Be-
ing away from the game for a couple years
makes you realize how much you like play-
ing basketball."
Seitz had a few offers from small schools
to continue his playing career after high
school, but ended up at UF and now wants
to be a basketball coach. He said playing for
Butler has afforded him the opportunity to
learn a lot that will help him in the future.
"Getting in there and seeing how a coach
runs a D-1 basketball program is good expe-
rience," Seitz said. "I try to take everything in
and learn every time I go to practice."
For Travis Young, the experience is just
a way to get consistent, scheduled exercise.
A 6-foot-5, 235 pound senior studying civil
engineering, Young hadn't played organized
ball since middle school.
Now, he's one of the key pieces in helping
to prep Butler's squad for some of the tower-
ing forces who own the lane in SEC play.
"Travis is awesome, because the hardest
thing to find is big guys," Butler said. "He's
not just a big man, he's a really big man. We
played against a 6-foot-8 kid and 6-foot-6 kid
this year in the league, and our tallest player
is 6-foot-2. There's no way we could mimic
what that's going to feel like in the same way
that Travis can."
One on one, the guys possess a clear
physical advantage over their female, varsity
counterparts. That's the point.
Even members of the practice squad for
Connecticut, the nation's No. 1 team, told
The Associated Press this week they can de-
feat the Huskies 35 percent of the time.
When pressed for an answer, Young ad-
mitted he thought his band of intramural
stars and retired high school ballers could
beat the women's team if they were given the
chance. But, they resign themselves to play-

instead of at

tempting fast breaks and alley-oops.
More often than not, they play the role of
the Washington Generals to Butler's Globe-
trotters, assuming roles and giving the team
a designed look they'll see in the next game.
Showing up early for practice and study-
ing film of the upcoming opponent, they are
then assigned to mimic a player in practice.
For Augello, it means playing the quick,
slashing guard who cuts to the basket. For
other guys, it means doing the little things .
like setting picks or rebounding, and they
may never be called upon to put a shot up.
They often play against their natural
strengths and only dribble left-handed or
drive the ball every chance they get, what- *
ever the players on the other team do.

Not Backing Down
As if confining their game wasn't hard
enough, the guys on the practice squad still
have to worry about matching up against
a bunch of women who play like anything e
but. For many of them, the transition to the
women's game was not an easy one.
"First time I went out there I didn't know
if I was supposed to play 100 percent or
what," Seitz said. "Then the first time some- 0
one scores on you, your pride kicks in, and *
from there on out I'm going 110 percent to
stop them. I didn't realize how strong some
of these girls were. Skill-wise, they are as
good as any of the guys. [Sophomore guard]
Jordan Jones is one of the best shooters I've *
ever seen, and I lived with (former UF men's .
sharpshooter) Lee Humphrey for a year."
That respect is echoed by Butler, who said
she wouldn't know what to do without the
practice squad. She's especially impressed
by how the men check their egos at the door
and do what they do without any fanfare. *
"They are a bunch of guys who are not
scholarship players or Division I athletes,"
she said. "I think our kids have a great ap-
predation for the fact that they are rearrang-
ing their schedules and letting us beat up on *
them every single day and that they come e
to the games and sit behind our bench to
support us. I think our players have a great
appreciation for the sacrifice these guys are
making to make us better."
But to truly have an impact, the men on e
the practice squad must go through an ad- e
justment period. They have to learn it's ac-
ceptable to get rough in practice.
"My first expectation was that these are
college athletes, so my first goal was to not
get smoked, because they're Division I play-
ers, so I just didn't want to get embarrassed," *
Young said. "It was tough to be physical
with them. I have a hard enough time being
physical at Southwest Rec versus the guys,
so it took me awhile to get used to being ag-
gressive and throwing my weight around in e
practice."
Young said he has no reservations about
using his big frame when backing down a
defender in the lane, because players like
Sharielle Smith and Azania Stewart won't
hesitate to do the same to him.
Roles have been reversed. Now, Young
and the other players won't be criticized for
manning up on a woman, but they will for
not being man enough.

Gators in first after two rounds


* THE TEAM'S SEASON-BEST 16-UNDER-
PAR FIRST ROUND PROPELLED IT TO THE
TOP OF THE LEADERBOARD.

STAFF REPORT

After two consecutive disappointing perfor-
mances, the Gators were in desperate need of
some momentum.
No. 10 Florida's men's golf team got exactly
what it needed with a season-best team score of
16-under par in the first round of the Bancorp-
South Intercollegiate Tournament in Madison,
Miss., on Monday.
While it could not duplicate that performance
later in the day in the second round, UF still fin-
ished atop the leaderboard with a score of 15-un-
der par after 36 holes of play.
The Gators came in as the highest-ranked team
in the event and didn't disappoint on the course
Monday.
Seniors Tim McKenney and Tyson Alexander
led the team with individual scores of 10-under
par and 9-under par after two rounds, which were
good enough for the two lowest individual perfor-
mances of the tournament.
McKenney shot nine birdies in the first round
and during one stretch finished with a birdie in
six of eight holes.
But over the next 18 holes, he shot three bogeys,
all on par-four holes. McKenney still finished in
the red at 1-under par in the second round, how-
ever.
The other senior, Alexander, took a different
approach to his great performance Monday. He
used an eagle in each of his first two rounds to
negate three bogeys. Both eagles came on long


par-five holes.
The only other Florida golfer to avoid finish-
ing over par after 36 holes was junior Bank Vong-
vanij.
He was consistent and shot two even rounds.
Vongvanij fared well with the longer holes as
he shot four of his eight birdies on par-fives but
seemed to struggle with the shorter ones.
Seven of his eight bogeys came on either par-
three or par-fours.
The other two UF golfers who participated in
the event were not as fortunate as the rest.
Freshmen Phillip Choi and Tommy Mou strug-
gled. They shot a combined 11-
over par Monday, and could not
provide a solid fourth score for
the team.
Choi only shot 1-over par in
the first round, but two double
bogeys in the second set of 18
hurt his cause.
McKenney However, he did rack up
five birdies throughout the two
rounds. He also finished with six bogeys.
But Mou could never get it going. He finished
with four bogeys in each of the two rounds.
Tournament host, Ole Miss, is right behind the
Gators with a team score of 10-under par, good
enough for second place.
UF, Ole Miss, North Florida and Louisiana
Tech are the only teams that finished under par at
the end of Monday's play.
UCF is in seventh place with a team score of
eight over par.
With one round to go on Tuesday, Florida will
have to turn in another solid performance to hold
off the Rebels and UNF, which is in third place,
just seven strokes behind the Gators.


UF's Tyson Alexander shot 9-under par in the first two rounds of the
BancorpSouth Intercollegiate Tournament to put Florida in first place.
