March 12, 1976 UF football players are rewarded up to $200 in personal gifts every time the Gators play a bowl game. The Athletic Association spends more than $20,000 a year on gifts for athletes. All var sity athletes receive different gifts and rewards such as rings, letter sweaters and leather jackets, for their participation, according to head football coach Doug Dickey. March 12, 1981 The UF Food Service Advisory Committee approved new 1981-82 meal plans that will cost between 13 and 20 percent more than the previous years. New meal allotments for the week include 10, 14 and 19. Under the new plans, students are allowed $2.85 for one meal and $3.65 for the next every day, compared to the current allowance of $2.25 and $2.75 for meals during the day.

Scottwhose previous promise to not raise whether he will sign the bill. During last years legislative session, UF President Bernie Machen proposed a 30 percent tuition increase to cover budget cuts. The Board of Governors has the power to approve or deny proposals for tuition increases. Machen has long campaigned for the ability to charge higher tuition, citing that UF has different needs than other state universities. Florida Alliance for Student Action have lobbied against the provision throughout the legislative session and have demanded Scott keep his promise to not raise tuition by vetoing the bill. Lawmakers also passed an amendment that would give UF the green light to insure state employees under GatorCare, a new model of health insurance. The model, according to its webclude more choices of health care providers, keep health care costs competitive and improve access. It already covers all Shands employees in Gainesville and Jacksonville, graduate assistants and postdoctoral associates. The bill would allow UF to insure faculty and staff, including IFAS faculty and staff all over the state and UF physicians in Gainesville and Jacksonville.

4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 MONDAY FEATURE MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterGainesville artist Melanie Peter walked toward an art exhibit as protesters set up their exhibit outside. Inside, Peter walked past bottles of wine and trays of delicately sliced meats. Outside, resident Maria Par sons lined up bottles of water and a basket of eggs all contaminated, she said. The artist went past two security guards and into the gallery. An etching of a skull and crossbones, a jungle-like oil painting and other pieces lined the walls. The signs lining the sidewalk outside also showed skulls and crossbones, but for a different reason. Peter said the art project inside and the protesters outside represent voices crying for change. We all have our different, var ied skills, she said. I personally cant do that going to meetings and thinking on my feet and arguing. But I can paint. The art show, Region 4: Transformation through Imagination, was created to showcase city artists feelings about the history and cleanup of a chemically toxic site in northeast Gainesville called the CabotKoppers Superfund site. During the shows March 2 opening, about 300 people packed into the Thomas Center to see the exhibit and discuss the site. The show will be on display until April 28. About 30 years ago, the CabotKoppers site was deemed environmentally hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Kids werent allowed to play near the area anymore. People were wor ried that a nearby creek was danger ous, and it was. Cancer concerns still loom. Since then, residents and local governments have protested some with letters, some with chants. For the artists, the works in the art project were a form of protest. But for the protesters, the art show didnt help the situation. For those living near the CabotKoppers Superfund site, listening to roughly 30 years of cleanup negotiations hasnt been easy. Some are frustrated. Some are furious. And others say they are happy to see something being done, even if it isnt all they hoped for. The exhibit prompted a few residents to put their dissenting emotions on display. The group, which through the afternoon, came armed with arguments against the art projects intentions and inspirations. The art show ranged from tapedup paperwork and video testimonies to a branching tree of bones, twigs and mementos. Peters work, an oil painting of a dense, jungle-like creek, hung near the entrance. Her work has more luscious trees and palm fronds than its inspiration, Springstead Creek, has. She said the creek isnt the same now that its dangerous to drink the water or sink your feet into the cool soil. This is my imagination of how it was and could be again, she said. While gallery-goers meandered around the pieces quietly, some protesters called out to bystanders as they left the building. Susan Fairforest, a Gainesville resident, held a sign chastising the EPA, the organization responsible for cleaning up the Superfund site. She said she decided to protest to get people to pay attention to the big picture of the cleanup plan. The EPA plan mentions removing topsoil from contaminated yards, but there are no stipulations for relocation. Were hoping that people will see the other half of whats going on, not just the feel-good part,she said. The city, with neighborhood-or ganized Superfund Art Project, used a $24,000 grant from a state cultural affairs division to host the show. The city gave an equal amount to the project by paying for the building to be open during the exhibit and for staff time. Some protesters didnt approve of funding an art show when there Parsons said she believes availrelocate residents from neighbor hoods near the site. Some are sick. Others have died. She and other supporters blame the contaminants, such as cancer-causing dioxin, from the Superfund site. Others disagree with the pur pose behind the art show to show a hopeful scenario in the midst of a bad situation because they believe the project requirements bor dered on censorship. According to a call to artists, the project was meant to showcase closure and a positive outcome, not accusation and condemnation. Mallory OConnor, show curator, said there wasnt any censorship of artists works. But Peter said the art show made a point that artists and activists alike agree upon. Its a powerful statement of what we wont put up with as people, she said. These are alarms in some form or another that we have to clean up or die. Contact Meredith Rutland at mrutland@alligator.org.

Issues of IncentiveInsurance problem root of birth control debate Few would have thought that in 2012 one of the biggest topics of debate would be birth control. While aspects of this debate are important, some of the rhetoric from both sides has just gone too far and way off topic. Rush Limbaughs distasteful remarks about the student who debate, claiming that she was asking the government to pay for her birth control. This was not the case. The student said insurance providers at her school, the Catholic university Georgetown, should have The main contention for those on the other side, namely from Catholic institutions, is that institutions and organizations should not have to provide coverage for something that goes against their beliefs. For those hysterics on the far right, the government is not going to start providing free birth control to everyone. For those hysterics on the far left, conservatives are not trying to make birth control illegal. But while the rhetoric has been heated at times, a crucial discussion has been absent from this debate. We buy car, life and renters insurance on an individual basis, so why are we reliant upon our employers to provide health insurance? When most Americans change employers multiple times throughout their lifetime, why is our health coverage tied to where we work? That seems impractical. According to Dr. David Gratzer, author of The Cure, the reason stems from a mid-20th century change in the tax code. In the early 1940s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted wage and price controls, making it hard for employers to lower or increase the wages for their employees. As a result, employers that employees were not required to pay tax on health insurance premiums paid on their behalf by their employers. Health benCode of 1954. to employees, but by 1987, 70 percent of employers offered As a result, we have a system of third-party payers, in which ordinary people do not really experience the true cost of their health care. This incentive limits a persons need to shop around, limits competition in the health care marketplace and increases health costs. More importantly, this entire debate about Catholic institutions covering birth control would be moot without this tax incentive. Individuals would be in charge of shopping for health insur ance plans that cover the things they believe are important, and companies would not have to go against their consciences.Meditation helps when getting over someoneThis column has high levels of Buddhism, so I apologize if I start to transcend meaning or pour you all a tad too much hippie Kool-Aid.

I dont have enough space to palatably reify the abstract mess that is the Dharmakaya a fancy word that, for sanitys sake, means the body of Buddhist teachings so bear with my inner hippie for a bit. Just be cool and enjoy the ride, man. Imagine your body is a television set and the emotions ber of channels you can display. Things to be happy and sad about are constantly in existence, and your demeanor arises from the ones occupying your focus. The Dharmakaya offers a path toward the ability to see all of them at once. When you can watch all the channels at once, youll start to see other peoples channels too, imagining yourself in other peoples positions and literally seeing and feeling from their perspective. That is called the oneness of being the ability to simultaneously be yourself and see as someone else, whereby all intive of the others. All human suffering stems from ignorance and a disconnect with the oneness of being. But if someone engages in the oneness of being and orients all perception toward the pursuit of happiness, that person will experience ultimate reality ment. But how does any of that apply to getting over people who wrong you? Well, you know someone came along and smashed into your existence before speeding away from it, sending you spinning off the path to enlightenment and away from the oneness of being. Youre upset because youre ignorant as to why theyre treating you like crap, or youre caught up on whats best for them. Stop that. Smile. Meditate. Reorient yourself toward your happiness.

MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Despite Rick Santorum posing as a hardcore limited-government conservative, his views on the economy, his voting record and his blatant hostility toward homosexuality portray him as more of a socialist dictator than a small-government guru. Even with support from tea party members, who also portray themselves as a cult of small-government enthusiasts, Santorum has time and time again voted in favor of huge spending bills that expand the role and size of the federal government. In a piece that aired on NPR in 2006, Santorum said, This idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, that we shouldnt get involved in the bedroom, we shouldnt get involved in cultural issues ... that is not how traditional conservatives view the world. By we, he means the government. How that reasoning can fall in line with the ideas of individual liberty and small government should be beyond any person interested in protecting liberty. Santorum plans on protecting heterosexual liberty in the ey in the Department of Health and Human Services for the purpose of strengthening marriages, families and fatherhood. The above quote comes straight from his campaigns platform. Why would anyone who believes in shrinking government think the government should manage family life and the choices of consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes? In addition to his urges to regulate personal behavior, Santorum has referred to the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell as social experimentation with our military right now, and thats tragic. If Santorum were a real small-government guy, he wouldnt be following in the homophobic footsteps of cur rent and former communist states in which homosexuality is illegal. Punishment and regulation of personal behavior is a characteristic of socialist dictatorships, Santorum. Not procapitalist democracies. ing record. Santorum supported No Child Left Behind, which was the largest government expenditure on K-12 education in our nations history. He also voted in favor of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act, which is predicted to cost taxpayers $549.2 billion by 2015. To add to his pro-government tax and spending record, Santorum also voted in favor of the Safe, Accountable, Flexers, costing the taxpayers another whopping $286.4 billion. Extreme wealth redistribution via government spending, homophobia and regulation of personal behavior should not be the traits of a man who is associated with and supported by the tea party. The socialism of Rick Santorum is a blemish on the face of conservatism, proponents of small government and protectors of individual liberty.

As players sat in the locker room, regrouping from the most physical game of the year, the truth started to dawn on them: They can survive without Will Yeguete. Even in a losing effort, that was proven Satur day. Right now, we were so close to winning that game that weve got a bad feeling from losing, Young said after a few minutes. I guess looking back at it, well say theres a lot of positives. UF hit 50 percent of its threes after failing to losses to UK. reer games from Beal and Murphy. Leading scorer Kenny Boynton had only two points on 1-of-9 shooting, but Florida managed to stand toe-to-toe with the nations best team for 39 minutes. If theyd been sent to the foul line more than just twice, the Gators could have been looking at a Sunday matchup against Vanderbilt with a Southeastern Conference Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament three seed on the line. If we go as hard as we did [Saturday], I think we can do it without Will, Boynton said. We lost, and were never happy with a loss, but with the effort we put out [Saturday] weve got to be happy with the way we played as a team. Thats the number one team in the country, right there, Erving Walker said. Theyve been all year, and we were right there basically in a road game with them. When Yeguete went down with a broken foot, the Gators had to adjust. New rotations and different roles needed time to develop, but now UF is ready. Florida has put itself in a position where its fate will be determined by whether it knocks down Relying on 3-point shooting is a dangerous and Id argue nearly impossible formula for winning a title, but at least it gives the Gators a chance. UF wont be let down by leadership, team chemistry, role confusion or maturity. The way it handled those things on Saturday proved that. pable of doing. We just displayed that we can just compete just about with anybody in the nation, so ing into the Tournament.

Sophomore Jonathon Crawford got his third start of the season for the Gators and worked 5.2 innings and two runs, the second an Andrew Valencia RBI double in the sixth that negated the 2-1 lead Tur geons home run had nabbed and effectively chased Crawford from the game. It was great to get Crawford back out there, OSullivan said. Each time he goes out there, he seems like hes getting better and better. For Florida, the win meant a weekend sweep of FGCU and the extension of a winning streak that now stands at 13 games, one away from tying the school record. At 151, this is the best 16-game start for the Gators in school history, beating out the 1952 team that started 14-1-1. Junior catcher Mike Zunino car ried the Gators offense on Friday night, notching two home runs in a 4-2 victory. Saturday nights game was all about top-of-the order offense as junior shortstop Nolan Fontana, Zunino and Gushue combined for It was a great, great weekend for us, OSullivan said.

Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Floridas womens tennis home match against Kentucky on Sunday was postponed by rain. It will be completed today at 12:30 p.m. UF has already captured the doubles point. 36% WALKER 30% BEAL 20% BOYNTON 14% YOUNG THE GATORS WILL PLAY AT 2:10 P.M. ON TNT. JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Staff Writer Before the Gators knew their seeding or what far reaches of the country the NCAA Tournament selection committee would send them this week, they sat in the visitors locker room at New Orleans Arena pleted resume. Floridas schedule this season was littered with games against championship-caliber teams, including three meetings with No. 1 overall seed Kentucky, as well as road tests against No. 1 seed Syracuse and No. 2 seed Ohio State. Theres no other teams we could have played to get ready for the NCAA Tournament, Kenny Boyna lot, been through every situation. So I think we should go in with the mindset of anything is possible. The common thread in each of those marquee matchups, however, was a UF loss. On Sunday, the selection committee pegged No. 7-seed Florida (23-10) to play 10th-seeded Virginia (25-9) in Omaha, Neb., on Friday. Before being placed in the West Region of The Big Dance, both the Gators and Cavaliers ended their respective seasons by losing six of their last 10 games. Florida has dropped You have only got one shot at this, Boynton said. Its just like [the Southeastern Conference] tournament, but this one is end of season. Youve got to give your all every game. Though the Gators missed an upset bid against the top-seeded Wildcats over the weekend, they came away from their 74-71 loss with a Florida fell in its previous two meetings with Kentucky by an average of 17.5 points. Were making moves in the right direction for sure, Patric Young said. Everyone around here loves each other. Were like a brotherhood. Weve been going into practice with a good mindset, getting better each day, been committed to doing the right things, and hopefully we have the same mindset next week but the results will be different. Last season, the Gators were considered over-seeded as a No. 2 and went on an Elite Eight run which culminated in an overtime loss to eventual NCAA runner-up Butler. ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb said in a phone interview that UF had to avoid being placed in the eighttonine-seed range, which would mean a potential matchup with a No. 1 seed in its second game. Instead, as a No. 7 seed, the Gators will see the winner of No. 2 Missouri and No. 15 Norfolk State if they get past the Cavaliers. Once you get past the top-three teams, and this is a group of teams that I thought Florida was in ... I mean, are they that much better than Duke? Gottlieb said. Theyre far more athletic than Duke. They shoot it better than Duke and they should guard better than Duke. Their results just havent been as good as Dukes. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org.

Florida receives No. 7 seed, faces No. 10 Virginia on Friday NEW ORLEANS Its a long walk from the press conference to the locker room. After Brad Beal, Patric Young and Erik Murphy wrapped up their media session following Saturdays loss to Kentucky, they began the return trip through the bowels of New Orleans Arena. Down the hall lined with blue curtains, up a ramp, across a tunnel, through a marble hallway, down the declined concrete path with white cinder block walls and through the third door on the left. It was an about 180-step, 400foot trip that Beal, Young and Murphy made slowly, stoically and in near complete silence. weeks, but youd never know it by their faces. They were down, disappointed, frustrated that their last and best shot at beating No. 1 Kentucky had slipped through their grasp. They should be, coach Billy Donovan said. I would be disappointed if they felt like, Wow, we really played hard, and happy day! I want them to be bothered. They should be bothered. Not to say this should linger on for two weeks, but they need to understand that you can give that kind of effort in the NCAA Tournament and you go home. If Florida gives that kind of effort in the Tournament, it might be a while before they have to go home.

His by a 2-2 long ball from freshman second baseman Casey Turgeon. Before the back-to-back freshmen hits, Forjet had worked UF over with a steady changeup-slider-fastball mix that kept hitters off balance. Gushue said the Gators werent pressing and he knew the big hits would eventually come, but early on UF coach Kevin OSullivan said he was very impressed by the Eagles mound presence. I cant remember the last time we got nohit through four innings and it didnt look promising early on, he said. [Forjet] was commanding his pitches, he was executing, he looked very comfortable. After giving up Gushues homer in the seventh, Forjet was pulled and relievers R.J. Brown and Danny Patrick hitless innings. However, none of that mattered as the Gators were working bullpen magic of their own. Sophomore lefty Daniel Gibson needed just 30 pitches to work 2.1 hitless innings, striking out a career-high four batof last season.

4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 MONDAY FEATURE MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterGainesville artist Melanie Peter walked toward an art exhibit as protesters set up their exhibit outside. Inside, Peter walked past bottles of wine and trays of delicately sliced meats. Outside, resident Maria Par sons lined up bottles of water and a basket of eggs all contaminated, she said. The artist went past two security guards and into the gallery. An etching of a skull and crossbones, a jungle-like oil painting and other pieces lined the walls. The signs lining the sidewalk outside also showed skulls and crossbones, but for a different reason. Peter said the art project inside and the protesters outside represent voices crying for change. We all have our different, var ied skills, she said. I personally cant do that going to meetings and thinking on my feet and arguing. But I can paint. The art show, Region 4: Transformation through Imagination, was created to showcase city artists feelings about the history and cleanup of a chemically toxic site in northeast Gainesville called the CabotKoppers Superfund site. During the shows March 2 opening, about 300 people packed into the Thomas Center to see the exhibit and discuss the site. The show will be on display until April 28. About 30 years ago, the CabotKoppers site was deemed environmentally hazardous by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Kids werent allowed to play near the area anymore. People were wor ried that a nearby creek was danger ous, and it was. Cancer concerns still loom. Since then, residents and local governments have protested some with letters, some with chants. For the artists, the works in the art project were a form of protest. But for the protesters, the art show didnt help the situation. For those living near the CabotKoppers Superfund site, listening to roughly 30 years of cleanup negotiations hasnt been easy. Some are frustrated. Some are furious. And others say they are happy to see something being done, even if it isnt all they hoped for. The exhibit prompted a few residents to put their dissenting emotions on display. The group, which through the afternoon, came armed with arguments against the art projects intentions and inspirations. The art show ranged from tapedup paperwork and video testimonies to a branching tree of bones, twigs and mementos. Peters work, an oil painting of a dense, jungle-like creek, hung near the entrance. Her work has more luscious trees and palm fronds than its inspiration, Springstead Creek, has. She said the creek isnt the same now that its dangerous to drink the water or sink your feet into the cool soil. This is my imagination of how it was and could be again, she said. While gallery-goers meandered around the pieces quietly, some protesters called out to bystanders as they left the building. Susan Fairforest, a Gainesville resident, held a sign chastising the EPA, the organization responsible for cleaning up the Superfund site. She said she decided to protest to get people to pay attention to the big picture of the cleanup plan. The EPA plan mentions removing topsoil from contaminated yards, but there are no stipulations for relocation. Were hoping that people will see the other half of whats going on, not just the feel-good part,she said. The city, with neighborhood-or ganized Superfund Art Project, used a $24,000 grant from a state cultural affairs division to host the show. The city gave an equal amount to the project by paying for the building to be open during the exhibit and for staff time. Some protesters didnt approve of funding an art show when there Parsons said she believes availrelocate residents from neighbor hoods near the site. Some are sick. Others have died. She and other supporters blame the contaminants, such as cancer-causing dioxin, from the Superfund site. Others disagree with the pur pose behind the art show to show a hopeful scenario in the midst of a bad situation because they believe the project requirements bor dered on censorship. According to a call to artists, the project was meant to showcase closure and a positive outcome, not accusation and condemnation. Mallory OConnor, show curator, said there wasnt any censorship of artists works. But Peter said the art show made a point that artists and activists alike agree upon. Its a powerful statement of what we wont put up with as people, she said. These are alarms in some form or another that we have to clean up or die. Contact Meredith Rutland at mrutland@alligator.org.

Issues of IncentiveInsurance problem root of birth control debate Few would have thought that in 2012 one of the biggest topics of debate would be birth control. While aspects of this debate are important, some of the rhetoric from both sides has just gone too far and way off topic. Rush Limbaughs distasteful remarks about the student who debate, claiming that she was asking the government to pay for her birth control. This was not the case. The student said insurance providers at her school, the Catholic university Georgetown, should have The main contention for those on the other side, namely from Catholic institutions, is that institutions and organizations should not have to provide coverage for something that goes against their beliefs. For those hysterics on the far right, the government is not going to start providing free birth control to everyone. For those hysterics on the far left, conservatives are not trying to make birth control illegal. But while the rhetoric has been heated at times, a crucial discussion has been absent from this debate. We buy car, life and renters insurance on an individual basis, so why are we reliant upon our employers to provide health insurance? When most Americans change employers multiple times throughout their lifetime, why is our health coverage tied to where we work? That seems impractical. According to Dr. David Gratzer, author of The Cure, the reason stems from a mid-20th century change in the tax code. In the early 1940s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt enacted wage and price controls, making it hard for employers to lower or increase the wages for their employees. As a result, employers that employees were not required to pay tax on health insurance premiums paid on their behalf by their employers. Health benCode of 1954. to employees, but by 1987, 70 percent of employers offered As a result, we have a system of third-party payers, in which ordinary people do not really experience the true cost of their health care. This incentive limits a persons need to shop around, limits competition in the health care marketplace and increases health costs. More importantly, this entire debate about Catholic institutions covering birth control would be moot without this tax incentive. Individuals would be in charge of shopping for health insur ance plans that cover the things they believe are important, and companies would not have to go against their consciences.Meditation helps when getting over someoneThis column has high levels of Buddhism, so I apologize if I start to transcend meaning or pour you all a tad too much hippie Kool-Aid. Ill try to remain grounded and, if I fail, Ill try to do so adorably, like Sarah ity is free of all adjectives, you know? off you are, you will experience suffering. Websites like whitewhine.com attest to that. Ive had to dredge through a recent slew of shit that I could have done without a guy I cared about cutting me out of his life and Taco Bell discontinuing the Beefy Crunch Burrito and replacing it with a more expensive taco with a shell thats a giant Dorito. Is nothing sacred? I hadnt begun to get over the guy after a week or two, which is pretty atypical for me. And theres only one thing a man can do when hes suffering from a spiritual and exisSo I criss-cross applesauced and ohm-ed my way to some perspective and understanding. I dont have enough space to palatably reify the abstract mess that is the Dharmakaya a fancy word that, for sanitys sake, means the body of Buddhist teachings so bear with my inner hippie for a bit. Just be cool and enjoy the ride, man. Imagine your body is a television set and the emotions ber of channels you can display. Things to be happy and sad about are constantly in existence, and your demeanor arises from the ones occupying your focus. The Dharmakaya offers a path toward the ability to see all of them at once. When you can watch all the channels at once, youll start to see other peoples channels too, imagining yourself in other peoples positions and literally seeing and feeling from their perspective. That is called the oneness of being the ability to simultaneously be yourself and see as someone else, whereby all intive of the others. All human suffering stems from ignorance and a disconnect with the oneness of being. But if someone engages in the oneness of being and orients all perception toward the pursuit of happiness, that person will experience ultimate reality ment. But how does any of that apply to getting over people who wrong you? Well, you know someone came along and smashed into your existence before speeding away from it, sending you spinning off the path to enlightenment and away from the oneness of being. Youre upset because youre ignorant as to why theyre treating you like crap, or youre caught up on whats best for them. Stop that. Smile. Meditate. Reorient yourself toward your happiness. Focus on the other persons perspective, then be it. Identify the feelings keeping you apart and accept it. Do not make judgments, even if its out of cowardice or fear. Soon you will understand why that persons perspective cannot change to what you want it to be. Once you Meditation will heal the damage when a guy does you wrong or when Taco Bell introduces tortillas made out of crepes. It will keep you serene when the French interpret that as an act of war and drop a nuke on us (which theyll aptly name Napoleon Blown-apart). Practice.

MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Despite Rick Santorum posing as a hardcore limited-government conservative, his views on the economy, his voting record and his blatant hostility toward homosexuality portray him as more of a socialist dictator than a small-government guru. Even with support from tea party members, who also portray themselves as a cult of small-government enthusiasts, Santorum has time and time again voted in favor of huge spending bills that expand the role and size of the federal government. In a piece that aired on NPR in 2006, Santorum said, This idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, that we shouldnt get involved in the bedroom, we shouldnt get involved in cultural issues ... that is not how traditional conservatives view the world. By we, he means the government. How that reasoning can fall in line with the ideas of individual liberty and small government should be beyond any person interested in protecting liberty. Santorum plans on protecting heterosexual liberty in the ey in the Department of Health and Human Services for the purpose of strengthening marriages, families and fatherhood. The above quote comes straight from his campaigns platform. Why would anyone who believes in shrinking government think the government should manage family life and the choices of consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes? In addition to his urges to regulate personal behavior, Santorum has referred to the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell as social experimentation with our military right now, and thats tragic. If Santorum were a real small-government guy, he wouldnt be following in the homophobic footsteps of cur rent and former communist states in which homosexuality is illegal. Punishment and regulation of personal behavior is a characteristic of socialist dictatorships, Santorum. Not procapitalist democracies. ing record. Santorum supported No Child Left Behind, which was the largest government expenditure on K-12 education in our nations history. He also voted in favor of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act, which is predicted to cost taxpayers $549.2 billion by 2015. To add to his pro-government tax and spending record, Santorum also voted in favor of the Safe, Accountable, Flexers, costing the taxpayers another whopping $286.4 billion. Extreme wealth redistribution via government spending, homophobia and regulation of personal behavior should not be the traits of a man who is associated with and supported by the tea party. The socialism of Rick Santorum is a blemish on the face of conservatism, proponents of small government and protectors of individual liberty.

As players sat in the locker room, regrouping from the most physical game of the year, the truth started to dawn on them: They can survive without Will Yeguete. Even in a losing effort, that was proven Satur day. Right now, we were so close to winning that game that weve got a bad feeling from losing, Young said after a few minutes. I guess looking back at it, well say theres a lot of positives. UF hit 50 percent of its threes after failing to losses to UK. reer games from Beal and Murphy. Leading scorer Kenny Boynton had only two points on 1-of-9 shooting, but Florida managed to stand toe-to-toe with the nations best team for 39 minutes. If theyd been sent to the foul line more than just twice, the Gators could have been looking at a Sunday matchup against Vanderbilt with a Southeastern Conference Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament three seed on the line. If we go as hard as we did [Saturday], I think we can do it without Will, Boynton said. We lost, and were never happy with a loss, but with the effort we put out [Saturday] weve got to be happy with the way we played as a team. Thats the number one team in the country, right there, Erving Walker said. Theyve been all year, and we were right there basically in a road game with them. When Yeguete went down with a broken foot, the Gators had to adjust. New rotations and different roles needed time to develop, but now UF is ready. Florida has put itself in a position where its fate will be determined by whether it knocks down Relying on 3-point shooting is a dangerous and Id argue nearly impossible formula for winning a title, but at least it gives the Gators a chance. UF wont be let down by leadership, team chemistry, role confusion or maturity. The way it handled those things on Saturday proved that. pable of doing. We just displayed that we can just compete just about with anybody in the nation, so ing into the Tournament.

Junior right-hander Austin Maddox handled the ninth in six pitches all strikes and sat FGCU third baseman Zack Tillery down looking on three pitches to end the game. Sophomore Jonathon Crawford got his third start of the season for the Gators and worked 5.2 innings and two runs, the second an Andrew Valencia RBI double in the sixth that negated the 2-1 lead Turgeons home run had nabbed and effectively chased Crawford from the game. It was great to get Crawford back out there, OSullivan said. Each time he goes out there, he seems like hes getting better and better. For Florida, the win meant a weekend sweep of FGCU and the extension of a winning streak that now stands at 13 games, one away from tying the school record. At 151, this is the best 16-game start for the Gators in school history, beating out the 1952 team that started 14-1-1. Junior catcher Mike Zunino carried the Gators offense on Friday night, notching two home runs in a 4-2 victory. Saturday nights game was all about top-of-the order offense as junior shortstop Nolan Fontana, Zunino and Gushue combined for It was a great, great weekend for us, OSullivan said. But it was a well-played weekend for both teams and hopefully this will make us a better club. BASEBALL, from page 15 GREG, from page 15 UF Baseball

MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NCAA TournamentAs a No. 7 seed in the West region, do you think Florida received appropriate seeding in this years NCAA Tournament? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Floridas womens tennis home match against Kentucky on Sunday was postponed by rain. It will be completed today at 12:30 p.m. UF has already captured the doubles point. 36% WALKER 30% BEAL 20% BOYNTON 14% YOUNG THE GATORS WILL PLAY AT 2:10 P.M. ON TNT. JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Staff Writer Before the Gators knew their seeding or what far reaches of the country the NCAA Tournament selection committee would send them this week, they sat in the visitors locker room at New Orleans Arena pleted resume. Floridas schedule this season was littered with games against championship-caliber teams, including three meetings with No. 1 overall seed Kentucky, as well as road tests against No. 1 seed Syracuse and No. 2 seed Ohio State. Theres no other teams we could have played to get ready for the NCAA Tournament, Kenny Boyna lot, been through every situation. So I think we should go in with the mindset of anything is possible. The common thread in each of those marquee matchups, however, was a UF loss. On Sunday, the selection committee pegged No. 7-seed Florida (23-10) to play 10th-seeded Virginia (25-9) in Omaha, Neb., on Friday. Before being placed in the West Region of The Big Dance, both the Gators and Cavaliers ended their respective seasons by losing six of their last 10 games. Florida has dropped You have only got one shot at this, Boynton said. Its just like [the Southeastern Conference] tournament, but this one is end of season. Youve got to give your all every game. Though the Gators missed an upset bid against the top-seeded Wildcats over the weekend, they came away from their 74-71 loss with a Florida fell in its previous two meetings with Kentucky by an average of 17.5 points. Were making moves in the right direction for sure, Patric Young said. Everyone around here loves each other. Were like a brotherhood. Weve been going into practice with a good mindset, getting better each day, been committed to doing the right things, and hopefully we have the same mindset next week but the results will be different. Last season, the Gators were considered over-seeded as a No. 2 and went on an Elite Eight run which culminated in an overtime loss to eventual NCAA runner-up Butler. ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb said in a phone interview that UF had to avoid being placed in the eighttonine-seed range, which would mean a potential matchup with a No. 1 seed in its second game. Instead, as a No. 7 seed, the Gators will see the winner of No. 2 Missouri and No. 15 Norfolk State if they get past the Cavaliers. Once you get past the top-three teams, and this is a group of teams that I thought Florida was in ... I mean, are they that much better than Duke? Gottlieb said. Theyre far more athletic than Duke. They shoot it better than Duke and they should guard better than Duke. Their results just havent been as good as Dukes. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. AP Photo Florida coach Billy Donovan and players (from left to right) Walter Pitchford, Casey Prather, Mike Rosario, Cody Larson and Scottie Wilbekin look on during Saturdays three-point loss to No. 1 Kentucky. Florida receives No. 7 seed, faces No. 10 Virginia on Friday NEW ORLEANS Its a long walk from the press conference to the locker room. After Brad Beal, Patric Young and Erik Murphy wrapped up their media session following Saturdays loss to Kentucky, they began the return trip through the bowels of New Orleans Arena. Down the hall lined with blue curtains, up a ramp, across a tunnel, through a marble hallway, down the declined concrete path with white cinder block walls and through the third door on the left. It was an about 180-step, 400foot trip that Beal, Young and Murphy made slowly, stoically and in near complete silence. weeks, but youd never know it by their faces. They were down, disappointed, frustrated that their last and best shot at beating No. 1 Kentucky had slipped through their grasp. They should be, coach Billy Donovan said. I would be disappointed if they felt like, Wow, we really played hard, and happy day! I want them to be bothered. They should be bothered. Not to say this should linger on for two weeks, but they need to understand that you can give that kind of effort in the NCAA Tournament and you go home. If Florida gives that kind of effort in the Tournament, it might be a while before they have to go home. Life without Yeguete: UF shows potential in UK loss Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca END OF GREGULATIONSEE GREG, PAGE 14BASEBALL BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer Jason Forjets 100th pitch proved to be too much for Florida Gulf Coast to overcome. With a 1-2 count, the senior right-hander gave Taylor Gushue a slider low in the zone, but Floridas freshman phenom got under it enough to deposit a souvenir over the rightNo. 1 UF a 3-2 lead that would hold as the I just wanted to put it in play, Gushue said. It ended up going out, so I was happy about that. The blast was one of just four hits on the day for the Gators, who couldnt muster a hit against Forjet through 4.1 innings before Gushue opened things up with a double. His by a 2-2 long ball from freshman second baseman Casey Turgeon. Before the back-to-back freshmen hits, Forjet had worked UF over with a steady changeup-slider-fastball mix that kept hitters off balance. Gushue said the Gators werent pressing and he knew the big hits would eventually come, but early on UF coach Kevin OSullivan said he was very impressed by the Eagles mound presence. I cant remember the last time we got nohit through four innings and it didnt look promising early on, he said. [Forjet] was commanding his pitches, he was executing, he looked very comfortable. After giving up Gushues homer in the seventh, Forjet was pulled and relievers R.J. Brown and Danny Patrick hitless innings. However, none of that mattered as the Gators were working bullpen magic of their own. Sophomore lefty Daniel Gibson needed just 30 pitches to work 2.1 hitless innings, striking out a career-high four batof last season. Three of Gibsons strikeouts came looking, a trend on the day for the Eagles, who struck out looking six times. I threw yesterday and I knew that I was still hot today, Gibson said.
