Faculty Senate chairman Scott Nygren said faculty members have voiced concerns about whether theyll be allowed to keep their doctors and whether theyll be offered a preferred provider organization option with their health care plans. Fussell said there will be an option that allows employees to keep their doctors, although plans might include incentives to use UF doctors in the GatorCare network. The university is collecting feedback from faculty and staff members, graduate assistants and postdoctoral fellows to tailor insurance plan options to their needs, Fussell said.

Sometimes people ask us how we are allowed to be, said Sarah Maher, another member of Survivors. When the police come, we have to tell them it is our right to free speech.

Workers had 13 days to transform the bar in time for its grand opening. Owners Rob Zeller and Mike Akey said they spent about $40,000 transforming the club. XS was more of a s and 2000s club, Zeller said. It was outdated and needed a change. Prices for drinks and admission will remain the same. The owners hired an interior designer to order the new bars, create a new color scheme The wooden bars were replaced with two custom bars. The front bar is faux marble, and the main bar is textured silver with white mar bling. The entrance area has a green mural on the main wall and lighting that ripples on the walls, giving the illusion that the room is underwater. The green swirl continues on the wall opposite the main bar. The wall behind the main bar was replaced with black marble, with $200 tea lights over the top of the silver bar. A wall lined with lighting that fades into different colors surrounds the VIP area. The sound system and bathrooms were also updated. Zeller said that the bars transformation We did a lot in 13 days, but we couldnt get everything done, he said. Zeller and Akey plan to add new tables and upholstery to the VIP area, update the DJ booth and add a private bar in the VIP area. Rick Rosenbluth, general manager for Envy and Gator City, said the new club has a more sophisticated feel. A lot of people say Midtown isnt a place for a nightclub, Rosenbluth said. But Midtown can be whatever you want it to be. Why not dance? A new signature drink will be introduced at the clubs opening. The Emerald Night is a mixture of rum, amaretto, pineapple, Sprite and Blue Caraco. Linda Riedemann, a 25-year-old UF graduate, said she has been a bartender at XS for four years and is ready for a change. It doesnt look like a dive bar anymore, she said.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterInsect experts said there will be more bugs in Gainesville during the next few months due to an unusually warm winter. The insect survivors of the not-socold winter can now feed and reproduce sooner and faster. Insects regulate their body temperatures by moving around. During winter, it is normally too cold for them to move, so they die, said Phil Koehler, UF entomology professor. More insects survived this winter because they could keep warm, he said. Fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, chinch bugs and ants all easily survived the winter, Koehler said. A warm winter brings in more revenue and boosts business earlier and longer, said Harold Raughley, owner of Anyone Can Do It Pest Control & Lawn Care. We are going to see bugs earlier than we normally do and later than we normally do because of higher populations, he said. Even though it isnt an epidemic, he said, this will be a serious issue. He said insects can ruin a home, lawn or business. People dont like to be bothered, especially with blood-sucking insects, Raughley said.

The 11-year-old just thought he found the dog he had always longed for. This year, Small, now 17, and his dog Tiger, now 7, have achieved unexpected fame after he started a blog featuring pictures of Tiger balancing food on her head. The blog, foodonmydog, shows picture after picture of the brindle Staffordshire terrior-bulldog mix sitting frozen, managing everything from a taco to a stack of pancakes to a few Twinkies. CNN and Buzzfeed recently ran stories about the blogs unusual nature. On the Internet, people like animals and funny things to look at to waste time, Small It was Smalls father who trained Tiger to do tricks like balancing a treat on her nose. One day in late December 2011, Small thought it would be funny to balance leftover sandwich ingredients on Tigers head and take some pictures. I sent it to my friends and they all thought it was really funny, he said, so I kept doing it. After a month, he and Tiger had 150 followers on Tumblr. In one day in January, the number jumped about 2,000. CNN took notice, airing a short piece a few days later with several pictures of Tiger balancing food. Foodonmydog now has about 21,000 followers. Small hired a press agent and made a deal to receive commission from a T-shirt company that prints pictures of Tiger. He is also working on a plan to change the domain name from a Tumblr address to its own URL. His sister, Amanda, is a second-year phar macy student at UF.

Before voters decide their presidential pick in November, we want to caution them about one aspect of this issue: The president has little to no control over gas prices. A major talking point for Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich is his promise to lower gas prices to $2.50 per gallon. While nationwide gas prices currently stand at $3.80 per gallon, that much of a reduction would probably be a big boost to the economy. ary, there is little that person will be able to do about the price of gas. The public, on the other hand, seems to think that the president can and should do more to help ease its burden at the pump. According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, only 26 percent of respondents approve of the way Obama is handling the situation with gas prices. This is not a partisan thing, either. When gas prices were up in 2005 and 2006, only 20 to 26 percent of the public approved of President Bushs handling of gas prices. Who really controls the price of gasoline? The answer is Washington, DC, determining the price of gasoline, and there never should be. The price of gas is determined by the supply and demand of due to the fact that revenue funds highway projects and repairs), it would only affect a quarter of the price. is a global market for oil, but the main point is that most of the factors affecting the price are out of our hands. The main thing the government can do to improve the price of oil is get out of the way. Not only should it lessen its intervention in the oil market, but it should also make it easier for alter native energy companies to compete. market and intervenes in the Middle East, a major source of oil, the more it will negatively impact the price of gas. Meanwhile, theres not much that Gingrich or any of the presidential contenders can do. They shouldnt try, either. ment of goods. Voters should be wary of all grandiose promises made by politicians. They should especially be wary of presidential candidates who claim they have the ability to change the price at the pump.Modern world has become one of fakeryWhen I was 10 years old, my family took me to Disney World. I had heard about the massive castle that stands in the Magic Kingdom I was rather obsessed with Medieval history at the time, and barricades, knights and archers strolling the walls. I was disappointed, of course, to discover the castle was nothing but a rendition of Cinderellas palace. However, I did not give up hope, and I maintained Yet as I entered the plaza and ran my hand over the made of stone, rather a synthetic plastic-like substance. I was crushed. I felt cheated. Ive hated Disney World ever since. That same feeling of disappointment is a consistent undercurrent of modern life, though its often hard to We live in a world of fakery. The same cultural disease that breeds disingenuous politicians also causes the desks in our classrooms to be coated with laminated, false wood. In a world of consumerism, what matters most is not the stone might of a castle, the beauty of a landscape or the gentility of the heart, but the furtive glance into the mind of the almighty buyer. Our houses dont have tile roofs because its the best material to keep out the rain, they have them for aesthetic appeal to a future mortgage-holder. Our politicians dont spout conservative or liberal talking-points because they believe them, they do so because they want our votes. The industrial Gilded Age of the late 19th century has nothing on Modern America; we are the real gilded it. ple, we do things that would be asinine in the eyes of our ancestors. We outsource our human relationships to social-networking sites because we have relationship really is, just as we have no knowledge of what a true castle really is, or a true house or a true landscape. We have been told all our lives that this world holds some semblance of reality the billboard-strewn, plastic-constructed fake world. If we thought differently, votes and dollars would be at stake. This fake world has made us comfortable, but what has been lost to gain this comfort? I remember watching a scene from the Coen brothers True Grit in which Rooster Cogburn was riding his horse through a river. The wind was in his face and the water was pressing upon his horse, but if he let go, both his life and the task at hand would be forfeited. said This isnt real life. That was real life. How correct he was. We have been robbed. As the clock was turned and the old world passed away, it was decided before we were born that comfort was preferable to reality. Our machines would do the true work the farming, the conversing, the producing while we would happily waste our lives, marveling at plastic castles and playing How low the mighty have fallen. We might look to the stars and see our celestial ancestors weeping, if only we could tear our eyes away. Luke Bailey is a history junior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Anti-choice group should redirect energyThis letter is addressed to the anti-choice bunch that makes its yearly rounds through the colleges and universities of our dear country. Because your goal is presumably to prevent the death of innocent unborn children, here are some suggestions for how your time and resources would be better spent in pursuit of that goal: Work on improving womens access to birth control. Birth control prevents unwanted pregnancies, therefore preventing abortions. Fight for universal health care to guarantee prenatal health for women and health care for new mothers and newborn babies. Fight for funding for programs such as WIC (a federal program that supplements food income for lowincome pregnant women, new mothers and infants). This would be a great way to provide the safety net necessary to bring a new baby into the world. Work toward providing free childcare for families. Many women may feel they are not ready to have a child because they might be the sole breadwinners in their household, and they simply can not afford to raise a child on their own. If our community offered childcare to all families, the decision to carry a pregnancy to term might be easier. Help Give Voice to the Voiceless by campaigning for women running for Congress. Because pregnancy, motherhood and abortion are issues of concern to women, equal representation in Congress would be a wonderful step to further the policies listed above. pitable and open-minded place to practice your freedom of speech. Diana Moreno UF alumna and proudly pro-choiceLetter to the EditorAccording to some political pundits, theres a war going on in the United States. This war doesnt involve bombs. It involves legislation, and the war isnt on a foreign nation its on womens health care rights. The debate began when the Obama administration announced in January that religious institutions providing health care coverage would be required to provide contracepof women, led to a lot of rhetoric, mostly involving GOP pundits fuming over this purported intrusion of government. Catholic institutions in particular were outraged, calling this mandate a violation of First Amendment rights. Controversy (and ridicule) reached a high point when Vir ginia Republicans introduced a bill that would require women sonogram. That bill never passed, but an amended version of it that requires a pre-abortion ultrasound was signed last week by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. Since then, the gloves have a gender war. Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner introduced a bill that would This joke of a bill is not the only one of its kind: Senators have submitted other bills with similar silly requirements, dysfunction drugs. I can appreciate politicians attempts to point out the absurdity of the recent legislation regarding womens reproducpoliticians to write satire. These bills have made a mockery of American politics. The battle against womens reproductive health care rights from requiring ing against required contraceptive coverage is an attempt by politicians to force their beliefs on their constituency. Because they cannot make abortion illegal, GOP politicians tions. protection from STDs, and its clear that for most opponents of the Obama-mandated contraceptive requirements, religious motives take precedence over the health and welfare of women. Its one thing for politicians to be ineffective; its another for them to try to monitor our lives. Ignoring the rhetoric, we can all agree that the only goal of lawmakers with regard to health care issues should be to protect and empower their constituency. However, many politicians are trying to do the opposite. Bills mandating abortion requirements ultimately reduce womens health rights and have no place in American government. health legislation now and demand independence and full respect under the law.

Once the location was picked, Puyana said, the owners decided they might as well serve food from it, too. Kara Norton, a chemical engineering junior, said she was excited that Flacos was opening a location closer to campus. She said she likes eating at the restaurant, but she only goes every few weeks because she spends most of her day on campus. Itll be awesome to have Flacos available for lunch, she said. Itd be convenient to eat between classes. Its good quality and good price. Ben Higginbotham, a 23-year-old Flacos employee, said the restaurants fresh food and late hours will bring in customers. He said that the restaurant uses only fresh ingredients in its dishes, which are prepared authentically by Puyanas mother.

This year, were focusing a lot more on having more diverse events, she said. Indie-rock band Uh Huh Her will perform on March 26 at the Reitz Union as part of the celebration. Poet Andrea Gibson will speak, and another female speaker will discuss being queer in the Islamic community. Students will also be able to paint their orgasms as part of the event. UF student organizations such as RUB Entertainment and Accent Speakers Bureau will co-sponsor some of the events, Pincus said.UF Pride Awareness Month to feature speakers, drag show A NATIONAL ENGINEERING CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF TODAY.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Lynzee Marmor / AlligatorDr. Pedro Jose Greer talks about the homeless and health care at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service in Pugh Hall on Tuesday night. ON CAMPUS SARAH LOFTUSAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 150 people gathered Tuesday night to hear a doctor and college administrator discuss national health care and how to improve it. Dr. Jose Greer, assistant dean of academic affairs at Florida International Universitys Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, said health care require. Former Florida Gov. Bob Graham introduced Greer in the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. Greer said physicians shouldnt refuse to treat anyone. We should be without prejudice, but were not, he said. He said the U.S. spends the most money on health care in the world, yet it does not have the worlds best health care program. He said this is unacceptable. I want to have the healthiest nation, he said. I want to do the things that need to be done. Society wants to take care of the homelessness problem but not the poverty problem, Greer said. Erica Crump, a 26-year-old UF alumna who is applying for medical school, said she enjoyed hearing from someone who shares her values in terms of health care and helping people. Its nice to hear from people who have similar goals, she said.Doctor says health care should be nations priority SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterUF student senators passed a resolution against unprecedented high tuition increases at Tuesdays Student Senate meeting. The resolution, which is a statement of opinion, opposed Florida legislation that would allow UFs Board of Trustees to pass tuition increases greater than the current limit for the next academic year. Tuition increases are currently capped at 15 percent each year. The bill passed in the Florida House of Representatives and the Senate. It is awaiting approval from Gov. Rick Scott. Students Party Assistant Minority Leader, Sen. Max Stein, said members of his party have already contacted other state universities in opposition to this bill. He said they will create a statewide Facebook group. We are going to urge Rick Scott to veto this bill, he said. Senators also passed resolutions supporting Regional Transit Systems bus drivers contract demands and UF Pi Day. Students Party Minority Leader, Sen. Carly Wilson, also spoke at the meeting. She called for the resignation of Sen. Katie Waldman, who was named by former Student Senate President pro tempore Jason Tiemeier as the student walking around with him when he threw away hundreds of copies of the Alligator on Feb. 20. Wilson said Waldman could have taken some action at the time. She also urged senators who knew what happened to come forward. You should not have let this cover-up continue, she said.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 LOCAL CHRISTY HANBYUL NAAlligator Contributing WriterResidents can help beautify the city this weekend by spending a day picking up trash. Keep Alachua County Beautiful, an organization devoted to reducing litter and waste in Alachua County, is hosting a kickoff event for the Great American Cleanup from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Westside Park. Volunteers can help by picking up trash and Mickie MacKenzie, the events coordinator and the executive director of Keep Alachua County Beautiful, said the event is especially important because the government uses millions of dollars each year to pick up litter. She said money can easily be saved when residents volunteer their time. Volunteers will be given paintbrushes, bins for trash and hazardous materials and other resources needed to beautify the community. There will be designated sites, such as city properties or approved private sites, to volunteer. Anything our volunteers can do is helpful in how we are represented to outside visitors, MacKenzie said. But also, in the dollars that are saved. There will be a continental breakfast at the Saturday registration, and a pizza lunch will be provided for all volunteers. The Great American CleanUp will continue until May 31. Last year, about 2,000 volunteers attended the series of events for the cleanup project in Alachua County, said Florence Cline, the former president of Keep Alachua County Beautiful. She said about 160 miles of streets were cleaned. She said the event also educates volunteers about the negative consequences of littering. It makes them more aware of what litter ing does to the community, Cline said. And theyre less likely to throw away litter outside their cars.Great American Cleanup kicks off campaign Saturday JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 100 people snacked on brownies Tuesday night as they listened to not-so-sweet predictions about the future of climate change. The word catastrophic is in fact what were talking about today, Unity College President Stephen Mulkey told the audience in Smathers Library East. Mulkey, who was a botany professor at UF from 1996 to 2008, prechange. His presentation, Losing Control of the Global Thermostat Implications for Florida, the U.S. and the World, focused on issues of greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. Mulkey said oil, natural gas, coal and nuclear fuel account for 90 percent of Americas energy. The proportion of carbon dioxide emissions is climbing, he said, which is believed to be causing more frequent extreme weather events. Jessica Steele, a UF doctoral student of geography, said she took home some knowledge on the climate situation. There were a lot of statistics and of, she said. I learned a lot. Mulkey proposed sustainability science as the climate-change solution. This applies science from multiple disciplines to solve environmental problems. He said UF students can combat climate change in a simple way: Get involved. Get active. Get politically active, he said. Get engaged in the political process.Speaker urges action against climate change It makes them more aware of what littering does to the community.Florence Clonepast president of Keep Alachua County Beautiful

ELIZABETH BEHRMANAlligator Staff Writer Every day at about 4 a.m., Carl Bovard is awakened by his 12 cats. As soon as they see him stir in bed, they begin to clamor for his attention. Some of the in-house cats bounce around, from couch to countertop to entertainment center, playing and creating a ruckus. The outdoor cats, which can see directly into his bedroom, begin to pace. Fury will whistle. Sita will growl. Amira, Bali, Mohan or Sampson might give a small roar. This is how Bovard, 40, the owner and founder of Single Vision, a cat and endangered species educational facility in Melrose, starts his morning. Bovard has two Bengal tigers, two Siberian tigers, two bobcats, three cougars, one lioness and a black leopard in his backyard. shepherds, a rabbit, a tortoise, two alligators, a macaw, two Asian squirrels, two kinkajous and two house cats. In total, there are about 30 animals at the sanctuary. His mission is to educate people about endangered species. Bovards philosophy is that people dont want to protect an animal they are afraid of. If they visit Single Vision and pet Rampage the bobcat or feed Abu the lemur, maybe theyll understand why these animals are so special and need to be protected. Armed with a baby bottle full of milk, Bovard entered the cats play area, always careful to shut and bolt the chain-link doors behind him. My cats are friendly, he said. First out of the gate was Rampage, the female bobcat, darting around to the back of the enclosure, where she teased the four tigers from the other side of the fence. Then came Fury, the female cougar, who diverted her attention to play time, playing tug-of-war with a long branch or scaling the tree in the back corner of the enclosure. Last came Sita, a black leopard about the size of a large dog. She ing in the sunlight, eyeing whatever new visitor entered her domain. She growled and crouched. She darted only a couple of feet before Bovard scooped her up in his arms. I do feel I have a connection with most animals, Bovard said. I understand them better than I understand people.S He graduated from Purdue University in 1995 with plans to become a veterinarian, but after working in a few clinics, he decided that career wasnt for him. He never wanted to have to put an animal down, perform surgery or give a shot. He took a job in animal care and animal training at SeaWorld in Or lando. After two or three years, he applied for a position as an orca trainer but didnt qualify. He didnt have the look to perform shows for audiences, and he said his voice had too much of a Southern twang for the microphones. After Bovard quit, he took a job at a small, private zoo in Orlando, where he soon was put in charge of taking care of all the animals, from primates to carnivores to birds. He even wrestled alligators. The zoo shut down while he was there, but not before he met people who owned tigers. To qualify for the licenses to privately own a tiger from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Department of Agriculture, the applicant must have prior experience working with them. Bovard began volunteering with those owners cats. When one was ready to give birth, he was put on cub watch and was present at their birth. The two cubs, Bali and Amira, were born in 2005. When zoo owners discovered Bali had some vision problems, they decided they no longer wanted to keep the two sisters and offered them to Bovard. He agreed to take them, and Single Vision was born. He cashed in his 401(k) and used his lifes savings to buy the property in Melrose. After the two tiger cubs came the dogs. Lemurs and more cats followed. I really had no intention of growing more than the two tigers I had in the beginning, but then I got calls about rescues and animals needing homes, and here we are two years later, Bovard said. Every Sunday, Bovard treks to the local Walmart, where he picks up about 1,400 pounds of meat for the week. That totals about $400 for food per cat. He stores the meat in six freezers in a shed by the alligator cage. Every afternoon after playtime, Bovard defrosts whole chickens and huge briskets in the metal tub The cats favorite used to be horse, but now their favorite is chicken. They like crunching the bones, Bovard said. Its good for them. They need the calcium. The Single Vision cats are always playful. They arent mean, but they are still wild animals, and Bovard has had a couple of close calls. There is a small, thick scar on the tip of his nose where Sita scratched him before she was declawed. Despite the risk, Bovard likes what he does. He hasnt gone on vacation in six years. Though this isnt what he originally planned to do with his life, his job is satisfying. I dont work with big cats because its safe, Bovard said. I like the challenge and I like the fact that Im working in something most people wouldnt even think about. 12, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 Becc Cox / AlligatorCarl Bovard feeds Sampson, a 2-year-old Siberian tiger.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Sports ExtraDavid Carr / Alligator LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer With the Southeastern Confer ence Tournament only 10 days away, No. 1 Florida is still searchcise. In its past three meets, UF has not maintained solid production some Gator gymnasts have shined on the mat, many have had their routines marred by minor errors and point deductions. The Gators average of 49.144 this season. Though Florida ranks fares comparably better on bars (49.303), vault (49.278) and beam (49.272). At home, the Gators average a that number is much lower at 49.07. The team attributes its lower scores on the road to unfamiliar equipment and scenery, and an absence of energy from the crowd. We really have to work hard on generating our own energy on the road, coach Rhonda Faehn said. Whenever you have the little bit of adrenaline, its usually helpful. While Faehn said Florida has tise, the team hasnt found its top lineup yet. Part of the reason the Gators havent built up the right rhythm is because of health concerns. Weve done that on purpose to be able to maintain with your body and your injuries, so were really careful with our athletes this year changing up the lineups, Faehn said. cause of that, and not having the rhythm, I think there are little misses or landing issues here or there. After posting a 49.05, its secson, against Auburn on Feb. 17, UF followed up with a solid 49.30 fully indicative of what actually happened. In the second through fourth spot in the lineup, juniors Randy Stageberg and Marissa King and sophomore Alaina Johnson all received 0.1 deductions for stepping out of bounds. In Floridas 196.950-196.825 victory against No. 6 Nebraska on March 4, UF recorded a 49.075, its worst event total of the night, from Johnson and Dickerson. Johnson recorded a 9.65 after coming up short on her last tumbling pass and struggling with landings. After opening out too running out of bounds, Dickerson ward on her routines last pass. Im working hard on it now and making sure I never do it again, Dickerson said.

The defending national champions have now won 101 consecutive home matches, and ponents. Perhaps the greatest challenge to the streak this season will occur today, when No. 5 Duke visits Gainesville. Theyre a really good team, Allie Will said. I know theyll come prepared, and Im sure they know of our winning streak, so Duke has been a yearly opponent for the Gators since the 2009-10 season, and Florida has done well against the fellow national powerhouse. During that 2010 dual-match season, year, UF won both matches, with one coming hopes to continue that success against Duke Typically, the Gators have played nonconference teams such as Duke before getting into the Southeastern Conference schedule. However, this years match comes sandwiched between conference matches. As of the latest rankings, team UF will play during the regular season. None of the remaining teams on the schedule rank higher than No. 14 Alabama. ren Embree said.

UF PLAYS CHATTANOOGA TODAY AT 5 P.M. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer Brittany Schutte taking a ball to the face was like a kick in the gut for the Gators. Or, it was supposed to be. On March 2 against GardnerWebb, Schutte was knocked out of the game after being struck in the jaw by an overthrown ball on the basepaths. Just more than a week before she got injured, Schutte earned the honors of Southeastern Conference Player of the Week and National Fastpitch Coaches Association Division I National Player of the Week. Having the UF single-season home run record holder out right before conference play should have crippled Florida. However, junior Kelsey Horton stepped in games after taking over for Schutte at catcher, Horton went 8-for-14 with four homers and 12 RBI. I feel happy that I can be starting back there until we get her back, Horton said. Im not trying like Im Brittany Schutte. Im just being me in a different spot in the lineup. Although she is not Schutte, Horton is certainly hitting like her. She leads the team with nine home runs and 29 RBI and she is only behind Michelle Moultrie in slugging percentage. Usually hitting cleanspot as the teams power hitter while Schutte is out. I always expect myself to have good solid hits, Horton said. If it goes over the fence or it doesnt, Im just looking to make sure I hit the ball hard every time. Coach Tim Walton was cer tainly not complaining when he could plug in Horton in place of All-American catcher Schutte. Im really happy for her, Walton said. [Horton is] someone who works hard. She led the team in home runs two falls in a row and now leads the team in the spring. Were happy shes been able to car ry that over into the game. But now in the midst of SEC play, the competition stiffens. A series against No. 9 Tennessee last weekend proved tough for Horton and the entire Florida roster. In three games against the Vols, Hor ton went 0-for-9, dropping her batting average from .407 to .338. However, Hortons numbers should improve in a double-header against Chattanooga (14-8) on Wednesday at 5 p.m. Rather than facing an All-American in UT pitcher Ellen Renfroe, Horton will face off against either Michelle Fuzzard (5-5, 2.78 ERA) or Taylor Deason (9-3, 2.23 ERA). Despite a slight slump against the Vols, Horton has never had an issue behind the plate. Sophomore pitcher Hannah Rogers said Hor ton has smoothly transitioned into the catcher position and adjusted well to the Gators pitchers. I played with Kelsey growing up, Rogers said. We were on the same travel-ball team for two years in high school and she caught me those years, so we pretty much know each other. We know the feel and everything. It wasnt that much of a difference. Neither Walton nor anyone on the team has commented on the severity of Schuttes injury or how long she will be out. Schutte was unavailable for comment as well. Until Schutte comes back, Hor ton will continue to catch and, most likely, hit in the four-spot in the lineup. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012David Carr / AlligatorSophomore pitcher Hannah Rogers (left) said junior catcher Kelsey Horton (right) has adjusted well to playing behind the plate in place of injured starter and clean-up hitter Brittany Schutte.

When things historically overlap like that its fun to talk about, Butler said. Its a great place where girls and womens basketball is important. The Gators defeated the Eagles 69-67 ment before losing their second-round game to No. 2 seed Virginia 69-55 in Charlottesville, Va. UFs last trip to Bowling Green was a road game for the Gators and this seasons journey will not be much different. The Buckeyes will travel just 123 miles from Columbus, Ohio, for Sundays game, a far cry from the 973 miles that separate Gainesville from Bowling Green. However, Butler says that Floridas experience on the road in the Southeastern Conference this season will be benwont be too many friendlies around. about what weve done so far, even if it were a loss because we know weve been tested, Butler said. The Gators are 6-9 away from home this season, including a 1-8 mark against NCAA Tournament teams in games not played at the OConnell Center. Sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds says ting to The Big Dance and added that overcoming woes away from home is key to making a run. You have to do more, Bonds said. If you want to make some noise and want people to talk about you, you have to win some games in the tournament. When Butler and the 1993 UF squad made it to The Big Dance, it started a streak of seven consecutive bids. From 1992-93 to 2003-04, the Gators advanced to the NCAA Tournament 10 times. However, Florida has slowed in recent years, earning just three berths since the 2004-05 campaign. Considering UFs track record as of late, Jones said she is just happy to make it to the postseason. But, she echoed Bonds sentiments, emphasizing the need to take advantage of increased national exposure to help Florida grow as a program. Butler and her teammates introduced the Gators to the national landscape in 1993. Nineteen years later, another inexperienced group comes to Bowling Green, hoping to make a similar impact. You want to go out on that note and people remembering you by getting the team back to the NCAA Tournament, Jones said. Its something for [next seasons team] to build off for sure.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NFL DraftWill any of the eligible former Gators be selected Vote online at alligatorSports.org.David Carr / Alligator to give the Gators a 3-2 lead they would not relinquish in Tuesdays 9-2 win against Florida State. FLORIDA WON 9-2 TUESDAY. BRYAN HOLT With one third-inning swing, Preston Tucker made things right again for the Gators. Florida was down 2-0 to rival Florida State and was fresh off the top of an inning that saw the Gators walk two and surrender two runs on a hit-error combination. Tucker then turned a 1-1 Scott Sitz pitch into a three-run shot to never hand back. We did a great job of damage control, Tucker said. We only gave up two and thats the only two runs we gave up the whole game. Even when we scored, we didnt give up any rebound runs. No. 1 Florida (16-1) went on to test that was dominated by the nations best team after Tuckers sixth long ball of the season. For the Gators, it all started with freshman Bobby Poyner on the mound. In his second career start, the left-hander worked fairly clean falling into a pit in the third. When Seminoles second baseman Devon Travis hit a ground ball to Josh Tobias at third, the throw was off the the lead. Two batters later, Poyner was out of the game in favor of senior Greg Larson and the Gators were entering cruise control. The bullpen did great, junior reliever Steven Rodriguez said. Everybody came out and threw strikes. We pounded the ball into the zone and we got outs. Thats what matters. Florida had a stretch in which it retired 12 straight batters and held a three-run lead before the Seminoles registered their next hit in the seventh inning. In the meantime, Floridas offense did what it does best: swing After not hitting a home run in four games against the Seminoles last season, the Gators hit two on Tuesday and now lead the nation with 27 team homers on the season. Junior shortstop Nolan Fontana added the Gators other burst of power, a solo blast on a 3-2 count in Tucker home run sparks nine-run barrage, leads UF past rival Seminoles TOM GREEN Chris Rainey isnt concerned about his NFL Draft stock; he doesnt want to hear all of that bullcrap. The former Florida do-everything back just cares about proving to NFL teams that he belongs in the league. He did his best to convince them Tuesday Rainey didnt run the 4.1-second 40-yard dash he boasted about before 180-pound speedster clocked times of 4.3 and 4.33 Tuesday. I did great, man, way better than the combine, I know that, Rainey said. That 40 time, Ive been thinking about that for the longest, and I had to come out here and redeem myself. Not only did Rainey redeem himself in the 40, but he also showed off his route-running ability and his hands dur ing drills. Coaches, scouts and former players in attendance compared Rainey to former teammate and current Minnesota Vikings receiver Percy Harvin, who was in attendance Tuesday. [Raineys] multitalented, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said. He can do a lot of things with the ball. You just have to get him the ball and let him do his thing. Probably a little bit like Percy guys from the same school, same speed, same qualities that can hurt you in many ways. Although Rainey said the 5-foot-11, Rainey draws praise at Pro DaySEE BASEBALL, P A GE 23 SEE FOOTBALL, P A GE 23THE TOM GREEN SHO WKevin OSullivan knows what Gators fans are interested in. Following Sundays win against about the in-state rivalry with Florida State. The fans probably make a bigger deal about it than we do, OSullivan said. Hes right; Gator Nation does make a big deal about playing the Seminoles just look at Tuesday nights beyond-capacity, sellout crowd of 6,005, the largest in McKethan Stadium history. Thats why its a shame these two powerhouses dont have an annual weekend series. Instead, they are doing the fans an injustice by playing three (or in the case of last season, four) times a year in midweek games at rotating ballparks. With two of the nations premier baseball programs a mere 150 miles apart, fans should be treated to big-time matchups. It doesnt get more big time than Floridas weekend rotation against a menacing erages eight runs per game among the best in the nation. They probably I wont say probably they do have the best lineup that weve seen up to this point, OSullivan said. They can really hit. Yet this season, Floridas weekend trio Brian Johnson, ranked the No. 8 MLB Draft prospect by Baseball America, Hudson Randall, the No. 57 prospect, and Karsten Whitson, considered a top pick when hes eligible for the draft again next year, wont go toe to toe with the likes of James Ramsey Annual Florida-Florida State rivalry should be weekend seriesSEE TOM, P A GE 23 T om Greentwitter: @tomas_verde Rainey QuotableIts really a minor miracle we won seven games.

22, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 Alligator File Photo SEAWOLVES MIDFIELDER PLAYED JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators were excited to have every player returning. Florida did not have a single senior on its 2011 team that advanced to the quarter We knew everyone was coming back, we were just building on the team we had. But, they ended up losing one starter in When No. 5 Florida (6-2) hosts No. 19 Stony Brook (5-1) at 3 p.m. today at Donald R. Dizney Stadium, the Gators will be playing against the only key contributor Hillier. Its always weird having to go against said. citing a desire to be closer to home and to The move did not come as a surprise to her teammates. Cullen said Hillier told ing earlier in the month. I knew she had been struggling a little said. She came to us and she sat us down and talked to us about it maturely and honestly. As a sophomore last season, Hillier was with 34 goals and six assists. ier has not been a crushing blow to the Gators thanks to the men Nora Barry and Nicole Graziano. But, rell said. this season as her 16 goals and eight assists and weaknesses are, so that will help, strong 1 v. 1, so that is her biggest strength and whenever she gets the ball shell go to goal. Coach Amanda OLeary said that while Hillier is a great player, the Gators cannot up against a dangerous, up-and-coming team. With Hilliers newly-acquired talents, the Seawolves have jumped out this season to a 5-1 start and a top-25 national rankyear. like Florida by nearly pulling another shocking win two days later in a narrow, 9-8 loss to No. 3 Duke. This is a team that is very well They are aggressive, so were expecting to have a real battle out there.UF primed for match with Hillier, Stony Brook UF Lacrosse

and Jayce Boyd, the former considered the nations top senior and the latter leading the Noles in hits this season. Instead, fans get to watch slowpaced, 10-pitcher, bullpen chess matches like Tuesdays 9-2 Florida win, which lasted just less than three hours. No knock on the Gators bullpen, which has been superb this year and showed it again with 6.1 scoreless innings against the Noles, but fans deserve a chance to see these teams go blow for blow in a three-game weekend series, when the big guns face the big bats something these two squads havent done since 2003. The thought of Floridas weekend rotation against Florida States bats is a mouth-watering matchup. But the Seminoles weekend starters, which bolster a pitching staff that boasts a 3.26 ERA, against a Gators offense that began the week ranked fourth in the nation in slugging percentage is just as appetizing. But fans wont get treated to either of those main courses this season unless the teams paths cross in the postseason, which likely wont happen until the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Fans wind up having to settle for midweek appetizers like Tuesday nights. Thats unfortunate, because as fun as watching these two teams during midweek games has been (even with the mind-numbingly slow pace that comes with these bullpen-dictated matchups), seeing two of the nations top programs go at each other at full strength for an entire weekend would be downright awesome for the fans and the teams. And everyone knows it, including shortstop Nolan Fontana, who said he wished the teams could play a weekend series. The schedule is the schedule, Fontana said. Nothing we can do about it. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator. org. 184-pound Harvin is the perfect comparison despite the difference in size, Rainey said he wants to be like the New England Patriots Wes Welker. There are similarities to Welker in both size and versatility, but Rainey stands to fare better on draft day than Welker did in 2004, when the former Texas Tech receiver went undrafted. Raineys agent, Joel Segal, said he believes Rainey improved where he stands on a lot of teams draft boards. Maurkice Pouncey, an All-Pro center for the Pittsburgh Steelers and longtime friend, said hes hearing Rainey could go anywhere from the second round to the fourth round of Aprils draft. Rainey already has workouts scheduled with the Philadelphia Eagles on April 2 and the Cincinnati Bengals after that. he said the toughest question he has been asked by NFL teams Segal and both Pouncey twins said they dont believe that incident will hurt Raineys draft stock, though. [Teams] just want to hear it from the horses mouth, thats in love, they just cut [the line of questioning] off right there. Brantley improving footwork: Quarterback John Brantley was one of 17 other Gators who also participated Tuesday. He ran a 4.8 40 and threw passes to Rainey and Deonte Thompson, who ran a 4.27. The biggest thing Brantley has worked on since January is his footwork, which in turn has quickened his delivery. You dont have to run a 4.5 40, but your feet have to be really, really mobile, said former NFL quarterback Charlie Frye, who has been working with Brantley. Its like a boxer in that pocket, being able to avoid people and move out of the way and still be able to deliver the ball. Those are the things weve been working on. Frye said scouts have been impressed with Brantleys improved footwork and some have him pegged him as a lateround draft choice. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 23David Carr / AlligatorFormer Florida running back Chris Rainey said potential suitors in Aprils NFL Draft have been asking him about his 2010 arrest. GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Not long after new offensive coordinator Brent Pease had been hired, Jeff Driskel ing to get a copy of their new playbook. Pease didnt have one ready, but the message was clear: Both of Floridas sophomore quarterbacks are willing to work for a chance at the starting job. Tuesday lists Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel as the No. 1 quarterback, an unnecessary reminder that the job is up for grabs as the spring practice season opens today. We have a quarterback battle going into spring, coach Will Muschamp said. Jeff and Jacoby will split reps, and well name a starter when were ready. Whether thats spring, summer, fall camp, I dont know. Pease and Muschamp are both hopeful that one player will assert himself as Floridas starter, but neither ruled out a two-quarterback system. We want to name a starter, but were going to do what we need to win games, Muschamp said. If weve got to play both guys, well play both guys, and we will make that determination as we work through this. Ive been in a situation where youve had to use both, Pease said. Itll work well if youve got the right type of kids that both can compete and you kind of use their strengths to how youre going to manage the game. Not particularly in favor of that. Id rather see one kid step for ward and take charge. Driskel entered 2011 second on the depth chart after enrolling in January, a semester before Brissett. He played sparingly in blowouts against FAU, UAB and Kentucky before struggling in the second half against Alabama after Brantley went down with an ankle injury just before halftime. But when Brantley missed Floridas next game against LSU, Brissett was called on to start. Brissett and Driskel split time against Auburn the following week, and then Brissett served as Brantleys primary backup and was the only other quar terback to see action against Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Florida State. 148 yards with two interceptions, while Brissett completed 18 of 39 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Muschamp said that sophomore Tyler Murphy will remain at quarterback and also be a part of the competition, although Driskel.

I dont really try to hit home runs, he his back and I get a little excited. Tuckers night took a less familiar turn triple of the season. The Gators tagged on three more runs in the eighth on RBI singles by Daniel Pigott and Mike Zunino, but it was once again the bullpen that kept things in check. Rodriguez, Larson, Daniel Gibson and Austin Maddox combined to go 6.1 innings, allowing just two hits in the process and striking out four. Both hits were given up by Gibson, while Rodriguez did the heavy lifting with a three-inning appearance. I like doing everything, whatever Sully asks of me I always want to get it done, Rodriguez said. For me its just coming out, pitching and having fun.
