JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After the Gators lone win in the Southeastern Conference Tournament, Patric Young sat next to his locker in the home dressing room of New Orleans Arery with a positive response. When asked if he was going to return next year for his junior season following Floridas nine-point win against Alabama on March 9, or whether he will go pro at 20 years old, Young declared, Yeah, Im back next year. Though Young has been known to be exceedingly candid with the media during his short career he also referred to Kentuckys players as out of shape headmatchup the next day the sophomore centers startling announcement still came as a surprise in the middle of the Gators efforts to claim the programs fourth SEC Tournament title. Both he and All-SEC freshman Brad Beal have long been considered potentially high selections in the NBA Draft, even before the season began. Curious if he had any insight on Beals upcoming decision, a reporter asked Young whether he had spoken with his teammate about his plans. Ill be back. I dont know about Brad, but I hope he is, Young replied. With the April 10 deadline for early entries and underclassmen to declare for the draft fast approaching, news that one of Floridas key building blocks for the teams future should have been a major revelation. But the very next day, Young sounded like a different person as about his earlier comments. On Saturday, he sat in a familiar position in front of reporters, but in a different locker room and, this time, following a disappointing loss to Kentucky in the conference semiHe was guarded and short in response. Young spoke softly and low enough that none of his answers inprevious verdict he came to regarding his future at Florida. I mean, Coach Donovan Its my decision, Young said. I mean, I really havent thought about it because the seasons not over yet. Young is right. The season still needs to be played out and so do the factors that will weigh on his and Beals draft status. Though Young again addressed his comments Thursday in Omaha, Neb., saying this time he has indeed decided to return for his junior season, recent NCAA Tournament history has proven that sustained success through the month of March could change all of that. During Floridas weekly press conference the Monday after Selectime on his own intentions. Describing his situation as almost a win-win scenario, Beal said sion will be at the conclusion of the season. Either way it goes, if I leave, I still played a great year of college, Beal said. I enjoyed it. If I stay, its only going to make me get better. Either way it goes, Im gaining something positive out of it. As a No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament cornered in the bottom of the West region, Florida is entering a winnable game today in Omaha, Neb., against No. 10 seed Virginia. While a deep run in The Big Dance for the Gators would likely have to go through current national powers like No. 2-seed Missouri and top-seeded Michigan State, some analysts like UFs chances despite the team backing into the tournagames. Gators prospects in the region is college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb, a for mer Oklahoma State point guard who has been working at ESPN since 2003. Gottlieb has publicly picked Florida to reach the Final Four, and he said an extended run could completely change the way NBA teams are looking at Beal and Young. order to help their stock is to win, Gottlieb said. If you go across the board and look at how many guys have gone to the Final Fours and been drafted, its really remarkable. Whether they can play or not is a different story. This season, Beal has tried to ing the most minutes of anyone on the roster. Coming out of St. Louis, Mo., as the No. 4 overall player in the country, according to Rivals.com, Beal has led Florida in points and 16 games. Though the 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 14.6 points per game and is rebounding 6.5 per contest, the large load he has carried as a freshBeal has struggled intermittently with turnovers and streaky 3-point shooting. Currently, DraftExpress.com ranks him as the 10th pick in the an especially thin class for backcourt players. I know hes a good student and I know hes smart enough to realize hes probably a year away from breaking through, Gottlieb said. Hes just inconsistent. But theyre going to take him. You know hes going in the top 10; everybody knows he can play. But is he ready? Or does he want to D-League? Gottlieb called Beal a player with limitless potential, a description he echoed for the 6-foot-9, 250-pound Young. Much like Beals current situation, Young gave thought to leaving after one season but stayed largely for academics. On March 6, he was named the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Last season, NBA rookies taken in the opening round of the draft made anywhere from $4.3 million in to just less than $1 million as the 30th overall choice. Young was projected in most mock drafts as a player who could have been selected in the late lottery round. After averaging 10.3 points and just 6.4 rebounds per game this year though, Youngs stock has somewhat slipped. Hes currently projected as the 21st overall pick by DraftExpress. com. Obviously, if hes not the most impressive physical specimen in college basketball, theres very few guys who could compare, Gottlieb said. For Patric Young, the M.O. is, Does he love the game or is he just blessed by God with this incredible body and skill so that he can just show up and do it? Each season, Billy Donovan har bors the same silent wish of every other Division I coach who is working with elite-level talent: He wants to see all of his players stay for the following season. But in his 16 years at Florida, Donovan has had 10 players depart early to pursue professional basketball. anybody leave. I wish these guys would stay here for four years, but thats not the real world anymore, Donovan said. And I think at times, these guys are presented with opportunities or decisions theyve got to make before their time is done here eligibility-wise. I try to support them in that. While Donovans main job is to make sure players like Young and Beal are concentrating on the team and not their draft positioning, he said sometimes the task can become more complicated when outside inI always worry about the agent situation and people trying to get to those guys a little bit, Donovan said. Its my responsibility to stay on top of the fact that they could be being pestered or someones trying to get close to them. Its not even that theres anything wrong or illegal going on. Its just more of keeping them focused on what they need to focus on. With Young hampered by tendinitis in his knee and a right ankle sprain for much of the second half of the season, Donovan has repeatedly called out the big man for inconsistency during practices and poor mental preparation for games. Im not saying this is Patric, but Ive been around enough players, there are some players that like what the game brings to them: notoriety, attention, to certain guys in the NBA, the money, Donovan said. Then there are guys that really want to be great in the game. NBA scouts have also noticed Youngs long lapses of energy and focus on the court, according to Gottlieb. If he cant practice or play in 32 games, how the hell are you going to play when we play 82 games? Gottlieb said. Though Donovan hasnt had to deal with many one-and-done types in the past, even the departures of upperclassmen like Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey Brewer, after they experienced success in the tournament, can put a strain on the program. We went through a hard time in recruiting when Noah and Horford and Brewer and those guys came back, Donovan said. You try and tell [recruits], Hey listen, theyre going to go, and all of a sudden one guy says, Well geez, Joakim Noah wouldve been the No. 1 pick after his sophomore year and he came back. Why wouldnt he come back again for his senior year? Donovan said that after winning two national championships with the core group of Noah, Horford and Brewer in 2006 and 2007, he spent more time re-recruiting them than he actually did coaching the three current NBA players. However, there has been no hint from Donovan that either Young or Beal has let thoughts of a potential professional career affect his cur rent play. Those guys are really levelheaded right now, Donovan said. They dont talk about it. With the draft deadline just more than three weeks away, discussing their intentions to make the jump to the NBA will have to become a priority for both players. Donovan is losing only one senior this season point guard Er ving Walker and is bringing in three guards for his 2012 class without any forwards or centers lined up to possibly replace Young or Beals impact on the boards. As the Gators prepare for their opening-round game today in what could be the beginning of a extended stay in the tournament or one that just lasts the weekend Donovan said both players have a clear understanding of how their performance going forward can shape their future. I think that they all realize that if our team does well, they do well. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org.

FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 ON CAMPUS KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Contributing WriterThe third-generation iPad tablet debuts at the UF bookstore today, but students wont get a discount on the product. lease for Apple suppliers around the world. It is priced starting at $499. Jon Pitts, a trade manager at the UF bookstore, said the bookstore did not offer a preorder option for the iPad, and Apple did not give an exact number of iPads that would be shipped to the store. IPads have been popular at the bookstore in the past, Pitts said, and he expects the new one to sell out quickly. The new iPad features more vivid graphics, faster perfor and the ability to connect to 4G networks. It is offered in black or white and features the same 10-hour battery life as its predecessor, the iPad 2. Pitts said the new iPad is essentially a beefed-up iPad 2. The screen resolution is incredible, he said. Its higher tion TVs. According to Macworld Magazines website, iPads preordered through the Apple store are sold out, and high demand has led to shipping delays of two to three weeks for new orders. Corresponding with the third generation iPads release, the iPad 2 prices dropped on March 7, according to Apples website. A 16-gigabyte iPad 2 now starts at $399. Pitts said the price drop is likely to lead many students to choose the iPad 2 rather than the newer model. Twenty-year-old accounting junior Kelly Collar said she doesnt think the iPad will be a necessary purchase for her because she already has an iPhone. She said the upgraded iPad doesnt seem worth the extra cost. If I was going to buy one, I would buy an older one because I feel like it would be a much better value, Collar said. Sonya Sarkar, a 21-year-old economics junior, said the brand alone makes the cost worth it to her. I would buy it because I just love Apple, she said. And Id buy the newer one because it would have more features.UF bookstore gets new iPad today sans student discount KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterStudents will be able to see the Pilobolus dance company per form this weekend without turning their wallets inside-out. The company, known for its contortionists who form objects such as cars and trees with their bodies, will perform Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This is Pilobolus fourth trip to UF and part of the companys 40th anniversary tour. The company performed shadow works on Late Night with Conan OBrien and appeared in a Hyundai commercial and OK Gos All is Not Lost music video. Renee Jaworski, Pilobolus associate artistic director, said she hopes audience members will leave the performance inspired by the human body. We take what were capable of as humans and make it interesting, said Jaworski, a member of the Pilobolus team since 2000. Pilobolus, which is based in Washington Depot, Conn., has three artistic directors, 120 original works and about 25 dancers. The company creates three original productions every year. Phillips Center spokesman Todd Taylor said this is a great opportunity for students. Taylor said when Pilobolus came to the Phillips Center in 2008, 1,340 tickets were sold. He expects about 1,000 attendees on Sunday. Tickets are available online and cost $12 for UF students. General admission tickets range from $20 to $40.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012 ON CAMPUS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSORLANDO Members of a self-described black militia group will attempt a citizens arrest on a white neighborhood watch leader who admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed African-American teen in an Orlando suburb, but has not been charged, a leader of the group said Thursday. Members of The New Black Liberation Militia plan to take 28-year-old George Zimmerman to federal authorities next week since local police havent acted, said Najee Muhammad, a leader of the militia group. Sanford police investigated but have declined for now to arrest Zimmerman, who says he acted in self-defense last month when he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Police say they have no evidence to disprove his assertion. They have since turned the case over woman said it could be weeks before a depresent the case to a grand jury. An attorney for the teens family said they are discouraging actions such as what the militia proposed. They want justice at the hands of authoriCrump. Everybody has a right to peacefully assemble but we certainly want to leave any A spokesman for Sanford police didnt return an email seeking comment on the militia groups plans. Zimmerman has a disconnected number and couldnt be reached for comment. Moments before the shooting, Zimmer man had called police to report a suspicious person in the neighborhood. After a confrontation, he shot and killed Martin, who was walking back from a convenience store to a house in the Sanford neighborhood where Out of a population of 54,000, about 57 percent of Sanford residents are white and 31 percent are black, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The median income is about $43,000. Martins family has criticized police for suit asking that the 911 tapes be released, but police said the tapes are part of the investigation and will only be released once the case. A spokeswoman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group that monitors hate groups, said her organization didnt have any information on The New Black Liberation Militia. Photos on the site show men dressed in fatigues and berets. There is no mention of citizens arrests in Floridas criminal statutes but state courts have cited common law in establishing when such an arrest can be made. The crime has to be a felony. It has to be witnessed by the citizen making the arrest or the citizen must have probable cause that the person being ar rested is guilty of a felony. Orlando criminal defense attorney Patrick Cairns said members of the militia face a high legal hurdle in taking such action since they didnt witness a crime. They could be charged with false imprisonment if they detain Zimmerman.Militia group wants to arrest Fla. watch leader suspect MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing Writer students were accepted into the UF Hall of Fame on Monday.

FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 THE TEMPLE WILL REMAIN ON CAMPUS THROUGH MARCH 24. JOY KINGAlligator Contributing WriterA life-size temple made of PVC pipes and cloth will take up most of the real estate on the Reitz Union North Lawn next week. Messiahs Mansion, a Christian organization from Har rah, Okla., began constructing a scale version of a biblical temple on the North Lawn late Wednesday night. When completed, the 75-by-100-foot model will stand 15 feet tall. Its a copy of Gods house in heaven, said Carolyn Leinneweber, director of Messiahs Mansion. The blueprint for the temple comes from the Book of Exodus in the Bible, she said. Leinneweber, 50, has been running Messiahs Mansion with her husband full-time since 2003. They received an invitation from UF SeventhDay Adventist group Baby Isaac and were given two days to complete the project. About 30 to 40 volunteers from Baby Isaac, Messiahs Mansion and Gainesville Seventh-Day Adventist Church are helping build the temple. They will give 15-minute tours of the tabernacle from Saturday through March 24. Tours will be open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Friday. Each project costs about $15,000 dollars and is funded entirely by donations, she said. Thomson Paris, vice president of Baby Isaac, said the group has been trying to get Messiahs Mansion to come to UF for more than a year. The religious museum will allow students to experience what life was like during biblical times, he said.Biblical temple to be built on North Lawn WADE MILLWARDAlligator Contributing WriterUF students can go Around the World in 30 Days with International Month, which ends in April.

An attack of this magnitude hadnt been seen before. For the In that same month, according to a New York Times article, Clear Channel Communications, a company that owns the most AM and FM radio stations in America, internally circulated a list of de facto banned songs. When the lists circulation broke to the media, Clear Channel claimed it hadnt banned the songs outright, and that the songs had been graylisted, or put on a voluntary blacklist for individual stations to decide. The songs graylisted were deemed lyrically questionable. Artists whose songs were rumored to appear on the list included Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Louis Armstrong and Billy Joel. One popular song among them was Imagine by John Lennon. The songs message was so powerful that Neil Young performed it on America: A Tribute to Heroes, a huge TV fundraiser that aired 10 days after the attacks. There are debates about this song all the time. Some claim it is socialist in nature and therefore un-American. Clear Channel seemed to have agreed when it graylisted the song a completely wrong move. There is little doubt Imagine promotes world peace. It declares that without countries and religion, there would be nothing to kill or die for, and without possessions, there would be no need for greed or hunger. Lennon states that a world without these things would be a world with all the people living life in peace. Detractors like Clear Channel would say the hippie song disguises a sinister idea: that beneath the overt people-sitting-Indian-style-in-a-circle-holding-hands-andchanting-kumbaya message lies some sort of socialist propaganda. Theyd say Lennon was calling for people to give up on religion, the moral compass of life, and become atheist, anarchicountry and let go of the material possessions they worked hard for so everyone could eat and live in a more equal station of life. The people who think this just dont get it. In truth, underlying the world peace message, Lennon subtly and profoundly pointed out lack of a better term) to discriminate against people based on manmade conceptions, and that fact ultimately divides people. Lennon pointed out religion, country and posses countries. Man makes material possessions, and material possessions are a function of money, another device made by man. Its precisely through these boxes, which we manufactured ourselves, that society has conditioned us to judge people. Weve been taught to hate. Consider religious wars like the Crusades and the soonIslamophobia. Countries that go to war to improve their positions virtually every single war. Consider prejudices made about entire peoples because of their government. Are the people who live in China genuinely bad people or does their government simply pose a threat to our government? Consider how jealous people can be when their classmates, neighbors or coworkers get new cars, and consider how that jealousy breeds resentment. Resist the society-made boxes and the pull to place people in them. We are all humans sharing one earth with similar capacities and struggles. Imagine that with compassion and understanding, we can solve problems and change the world. If more people understood John Lennons Imagine, the world would indeed live as one.

Mobley worked with two other people, according to Gainesville Police, whose investigation is still in progress. Other arrests are more than likely forthcoming, said GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri. At about 6 p.m. Wednesday, Mobley and the two other people planned to steal six boxes of Black Roll Out Plastic Sheeting from the Home Depot at 5150 NW 13th St, police said. The three men loaded the sheets on a cart near the garden center exit, and Mobley distracted a cashier as the other two people rolled the cart to the parking lot. surveillance video, according to police. Earlier Wednesday, employees from the Home Depot on Northwest 75th Street warned the employees of the Northwest 13th Street location about the three suspicious people. Workers at the 75th Street store followed three people around the store before they left without buying anything. In the parking lot at the 13th Street store, Mobley and the other two people loaded the sheets into cer Gaylord Wagaman confronted them. They took the sheets out of the car and lingered for a few minutes, according to police. But the three suspects then got back in the car and drove off, hopping a curb and almost hitting several vehicles before speeding off on Northwest 13th Street. Wagaman was on the phone with 911 when they left. From the surveillance video, GPD determined the car belonged to another fraternity member, whose name was not released.

Going straight to the market rate would mean an increase of about 40 percent. Machen said to be fair, hed rather wait until Fall 2013 to allow families considering UF to plan for the cost. Another side of the plan would introduce the same amount for tuition throughout their degree programs so families can plan for similar expenses over four years. Tuition would increase with incoming freshman classes. During the meeting, Machen opened the GatorCare. Some were concerned about whether offcampus and retired faculty would be covered under the plan. Machen said they would. Wherever you are, we got you covered, he said. Machen encouraged faculty to keep voicing their concerns and suggestions. He said the only everyone is if they continue to share. Bernard Mair, associate provost for undergraduate affairs, and Dave Kratzer, associate vice president for student affairs, gave an update on the anti-hazing task force. Mair and Kratzer said people will soon be able to look up organizations conduct history online to see if a hazing complaint has been made against it.

who struggled mightily during his freshman campaign but will get a clean slate under new offensive coordinator Brent Pease. Despite battling through spring practice last year, Driskel entered the 2011 season No. 2 on the Gators depth chart behind redshirt senior John Brantley. He made his collegiate debut against Florida Atlantic, completing 4 of 6 passes for 42 yards and an interception in second-half garbage time. But nearly a month later, when Brantley sprained his ankle at the end of the called upon and looked just as lost as he said he was in the spring. I want to say that I was calm, but Id be lying, Driskel said. I was a little nervous. It was a big stage; I should have been more prepared. Driskel vows he will be more prepared this year, adding he is more maoffense, which is remaining largely the same under Pease apart from tweaked terminology and more shifts and presnap motions. First, Driskel must beat out Brissett, who took over the backup job following the Alabama game and looked far more poised running Floridas offense than Driskel did in his limited action. To be honest I wasnt (nervous), Brissett said. I mean, throughout practice I kind of like put myself in situations in my head like if it was a real game, and when I went out there I dont think I felt anything. the backup, even earning time as the Gators goal-line quarterback when Brantleys ankle was still recovering.

Ive said it before: Unfortunately they played for us [last] year; fortunately they played for us [last] year, Muschamp said. Its two-fold. Its not an indictment on either young man.

JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After the Gators lone win in the Southeastern Conference Tournament, Patric Young sat next to his locker in the home dressing room of New Orleans Arery with a positive response. When asked if he was going to return next year for his junior season following Floridas nine-point win against Alabama on March 9, or whether he will go pro at 20 years old, Young declared, Yeah, Im back next year. Though Young has been known to be exceedingly candid with the media during his short career he also referred to Kentuckys players as out of shape headmatchup the next day the sophomore centers startling announcement still came as a surprise in the middle of the Gators efforts to claim the programs fourth SEC Tournament title. Both he and All-SEC freshman Brad Beal have long been considered potentially high selections in the NBA Draft, even before the season began. Curious if he had any insight on Beals upcoming decision, a reporter asked Young whether he had spoken with his teammate about his plans. Ill be back. I dont know about Brad, but I hope he is, Young replied. With the April 10 deadline for early entries and underclassmen to declare for the draft fast approaching, news that one of Floridas key building blocks for the teams future should have been a major revelation. But the very next day, Young sounded like a different person as about his earlier comments. On Saturday, he sat in a familiar position in front of reporters, but in a different locker room and, this time, following a disappointing loss to Kentucky in the conference semiHe was guarded and short in response. Young spoke softly and low enough that none of his answers inprevious verdict he came to regarding his future at Florida. I mean, Coach Donovan Its my decision, Young said. I mean, I really havent thought about it because the seasons not over yet. Young is right. The season still needs to be played out and so do the factors that will weigh on his and Beals draft status. Though Young again addressed his comments Thursday in Omaha, Neb., saying this time he has indeed decided to return for his junior season, recent NCAA Tournament history has proven that sustained success through the month of March could change all of that. During Floridas weekly press conference the Monday after Selectime on his own intentions. Describing his situation as almost a win-win scenario, Beal said sion will be at the conclusion of the season. Either way it goes, if I leave, I still played a great year of college, Beal said. I enjoyed it. If I stay, its only going to make me get better. Either way it goes, Im gaining something positive out of it. As a No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament cornered in the bottom of the West region, Florida is entering a winnable game today in Omaha, Neb., against No. 10 seed Virginia. While a deep run in The Big Dance for the Gators would likely have to go through current national powers like No. 2-seed Missouri and top-seeded Michigan State, some analysts like UFs chances despite the team backing into the tournagames. Gators prospects in the region is college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb, a for mer Oklahoma State point guard who has been working at ESPN since 2003. Gottlieb has publicly picked Florida to reach the Final Four, and he said an extended run could completely change the way NBA teams are looking at Beal and Young. order to help their stock is to win, Gottlieb said. If you go across the board and look at how many guys have gone to the Final Fours and been drafted, its really remarkable. Whether they can play or not is a different story. This season, Beal has tried to ing the most minutes of anyone on the roster. Coming out of St. Louis, Mo., as the No. 4 overall player in the country, according to Rivals.com, Beal has led Florida in points and 16 games. Though the 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 14.6 points per game and is rebounding 6.5 per contest, the large load he has carried as a freshBeal has struggled intermittently with turnovers and streaky 3-point shooting. Currently, DraftExpress.com ranks him as the 10th pick in the an especially thin class for backcourt players. I know hes a good student and I know hes smart enough to realize hes probably a year away from breaking through, Gottlieb said. Hes just inconsistent. But theyre going to take him. You know hes going in the top 10; everybody knows he can play. But is he ready? Or does he want to D-League? Gottlieb called Beal a player with limitless potential, a description he echoed for the 6-foot-9, 250-pound Young. Much like Beals current situation, Young gave thought to leaving after one season but stayed largely for academics. On March 6, he was named the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Last season, NBA rookies taken in the opening round of the draft made anywhere from $4.3 million in to just less than $1 million as the 30th overall choice. Young was projected in most mock drafts as a player who could have been selected in the late lottery round. After averaging 10.3 points and just 6.4 rebounds per game this year though, Youngs stock has somewhat slipped. Hes currently projected as the 21st overall pick by DraftExpress. com. Obviously, if hes not the most impressive physical specimen in college basketball, theres very few guys who could compare, Gottlieb said. For Patric Young, the M.O. is, Does he love the game or is he just blessed by God with this incredible body and skill so that he can just show up and do it? Each season, Billy Donovan har bors the same silent wish of every other Division I coach who is working with elite-level talent: He wants to see all of his players stay for the following season. But in his 16 years at Florida, Donovan has had 10 players depart early to pursue professional basketball. anybody leave. I wish these guys would stay here for four years, but thats not the real world anymore, Donovan said. And I think at times, these guys are presented with opportunities or decisions theyve got to make before their time is done here eligibility-wise. I try to support them in that. While Donovans main job is to make sure players like Young and Beal are concentrating on the team and not their draft positioning, he said sometimes the task can become more complicated when outside inI always worry about the agent situation and people trying to get to those guys a little bit, Donovan said. Its my responsibility to stay on top of the fact that they could be being pestered or someones trying to get close to them. Its not even that theres anything wrong or illegal going on. Its just more of keeping them focused on what they need to focus on. With Young hampered by tendinitis in his knee and a right ankle sprain for much of the second half of the season, Donovan has repeatedly called out the big man for inconsistency during practices and poor mental preparation for games. Im not saying this is Patric, but Ive been around enough players, there are some players that like what the game brings to them: notoriety, attention, to certain guys in the NBA, the money, Donovan said. Then there are guys that really want to be great in the game. NBA scouts have also noticed Youngs long lapses of energy and focus on the court, according to Gottlieb. If he cant practice or play in 32 games, how the hell are you going to play when we play 82 games? Gottlieb said. Though Donovan hasnt had to deal with many one-and-done types in the past, even the departures of upperclassmen like Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Corey Brewer, after they experienced success in the tournament, can put a strain on the program. We went through a hard time in recruiting when Noah and Horford and Brewer and those guys came back, Donovan said. You try and tell [recruits], Hey listen, theyre going to go, and all of a sudden one guy says, Well geez, Joakim Noah wouldve been the No. 1 pick after his sophomore year and he came back. Why wouldnt he come back again for his senior year? Donovan said that after winning two national championships with the core group of Noah, Horford and Brewer in 2006 and 2007, he spent more time re-recruiting them than he actually did coaching the three current NBA players. However, there has been no hint from Donovan that either Young or Beal has let thoughts of a potential professional career affect his cur rent play. Those guys are really levelheaded right now, Donovan said. They dont talk about it. With the draft deadline just more than three weeks away, discussing their intentions to make the jump to the NBA will have to become a priority for both players. Donovan is losing only one senior this season point guard Er ving Walker and is bringing in three guards for his 2012 class without any forwards or centers lined up to possibly replace Young or Beals impact on the boards. As the Gators prepare for their opening-round game today in what could be the beginning of a extended stay in the tournament or one that just lasts the weekend Donovan said both players have a clear understanding of how their performance going forward can shape their future. I think that they all realize that if our team does well, they do well. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org.

It is priced starting at $499. Jon Pitts, a trade manager at the UF bookstore, said the bookstore did not offer a preorder option for the iPad, and Apple did not give an exact number of iPads that would be shipped to the store. IPads have been popular at the bookstore in the past, Pitts said, and he expects the new one to sell out quickly. The new iPad features more vivid graphics, faster perfor and the ability to connect to 4G networks. It is offered in black or white and features the same 10-hour battery life as its predecessor, the iPad 2. Pitts said the new iPad is essentially a beefed-up iPad 2. The screen resolution is incredible, he said. Its higher tion TVs. According to Macworld Magazines website, iPads preordered through the Apple store are sold out, and high demand has led to shipping delays of two to three weeks for new orders. Corresponding with the third generation iPads release, the iPad 2 prices dropped on March 7, according to Apples website. A 16-gigabyte iPad 2 now starts at $399. Pitts said the price drop is likely to lead many students to choose the iPad 2 rather than the newer model. Twenty-year-old accounting junior Kelly Collar said she doesnt think the iPad will be a necessary purchase for her because she already has an iPhone. She said the upgraded iPad doesnt seem worth the extra cost. If I was going to buy one, I would buy an older one because I feel like it would be a much better value, Collar said. Sonya Sarkar, a 21-year-old economics junior, said the brand alone makes the cost worth it to her. I would buy it because I just love Apple, she said.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012 ON CAMPUS THE ASSOCIATED PRESSORLANDO Members of a self-described black militia group will attempt a citizens arrest on a white neighborhood watch leader who admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed African-American teen in an Orlando suburb, but has not been charged, a leader of the group said Thursday. Members of The New Black Liberation Militia plan to take 28-year-old George Zimmerman to federal authorities next week since local police havent acted, said Najee Muhammad, a leader of the militia group. Sanford police investigated but have declined for now to arrest Zimmerman, who says he acted in self-defense last month when he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Police say they have no evidence to disprove his assertion. They have since turned the case over woman said it could be weeks before a depresent the case to a grand jury. An attorney for the teens family said they are discouraging actions such as what the militia proposed. They want justice at the hands of authoriCrump. Everybody has a right to peacefully assemble but we certainly want to leave any A spokesman for Sanford police didnt return an email seeking comment on the militia groups plans. Zimmerman has a disconnected number and couldnt be reached for comment. Moments before the shooting, Zimmer man had called police to report a suspicious person in the neighborhood. After a confrontation, he shot and killed Martin, who was walking back from a convenience store to a house in the Sanford neighborhood where Out of a population of 54,000, about 57 percent of Sanford residents are white and 31 percent are black, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. The median income is about $43,000. Martins family has criticized police for suit asking that the 911 tapes be released, but police said the tapes are part of the investigation and will only be released once the case. A spokeswoman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group that monitors hate groups, said her organization didnt have any information on The New Black Liberation Militia. Photos on the site show men dressed in fatigues and berets. There is no mention of citizens arrests in Floridas criminal statutes but state courts have cited common law in establishing when such an arrest can be made. The crime has to be a felony. It has to be witnessed by the citizen making the arrest or the citizen must have probable cause that the person being ar rested is guilty of a felony. Orlando criminal defense attorney Patrick Cairns said members of the militia face a high legal hurdle in taking such action since they didnt witness a crime.

JOY KINGAlligator Contributing WriterA life-size temple made of PVC pipes and cloth will take up most of the real estate on the Reitz Union North Lawn next week. Messiahs Mansion, a Christian organization from Har rah, Okla., began constructing a scale version of a biblical temple on the North Lawn late Wednesday night. When completed, the 75-by-100-foot model will stand 15 feet tall. Its a copy of Gods house in heaven, said Carolyn Leinneweber, director of Messiahs Mansion. The blueprint for the temple comes from the Book of Exodus in the Bible, she said. Leinneweber, 50, has been running Messiahs Mansion with her husband full-time since 2003. They received an invitation from UF SeventhDay Adventist group Baby Isaac and were given two days to complete the project.

People were shocked almost 3,000 people dead, families torn apart, iconic American architecture and symbolism utterly destroyed, our proud military headquarters damaged. An attack of this magnitude hadnt been seen before. For the In that same month, according to a New York Times article, Clear Channel Communications, a company that owns the most AM and FM radio stations in America, internally circulated a list of de facto banned songs. When the lists circulation broke to the media, Clear Channel claimed it hadnt banned the songs outright, and that the songs had been graylisted, or put on a voluntary blacklist for individual stations to decide. The songs graylisted were deemed lyrically questionable. Artists whose songs were rumored to appear on the list included Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Louis Armstrong and Billy Joel. One popular song among them was Imagine by John Lennon. The songs message was so powerful that Neil Young performed it on America: A Tribute to Heroes, a huge TV fundraiser that aired 10 days after the attacks. There are debates about this song all the time. Some claim it is socialist in nature and therefore un-American. Clear Channel seemed to have agreed when it graylisted the song a completely wrong move. There is little doubt Imagine promotes world peace. It declares that without countries and religion, there would be nothing to kill or die for, and without possessions, there would be no need for greed or hunger. Lennon states that a world without these things would be a world with all the people living life in peace. Detractors like Clear Channel would say the hippie song disguises a sinister idea: that beneath the overt people-sitting-Indian-style-in-a-circle-holding-hands-andchanting-kumbaya message lies some sort of socialist propaganda. Theyd say Lennon was calling for people to give up on religion, the moral compass of life, and become atheist, anarchicountry and let go of the material possessions they worked hard for so everyone could eat and live in a more equal station of life. The people who think this just dont get it. In truth, underlying the world peace message, Lennon subtly and profoundly pointed out lack of a better term) to discriminate against people based on manmade conceptions, and that fact ultimately divides people. Lennon pointed out religion, country and possescountries. Man makes material possessions, and material possessions are a function of money, another device made by man. Its precisely through these boxes, which we manufactured ourselves, that society has conditioned us to judge people. Weve been taught to hate. Consider religious wars like the Crusades and the soonIslamophobia. Countries that go to war to improve their positions virtually every single war. Consider prejudices made about entire peoples because of their government. Are the people who live in China genuinely bad people or does their government simply pose a threat to our government? Consider how jealous people can be when their classmates, neighbors or coworkers get new cars, and consider how that jealousy breeds resentment. Resist the society-made boxes and the pull to place people in them. We are all humans sharing one earth with similar capacities and struggles. Imagine that with compassion and understanding, we can solve problems and change the world. If more people understood John Lennons Imagine, the world would indeed live as one.

Earlier Wednesday, employees from the Home Depot on Northwest 75th Street warned the employees of the Northwest 13th Street location about the three suspicious people.

In the parking lot at the 13th Street store, Mobley and the other two people loaded the sheets into cer Gaylord Wagaman confronted them.

Going straight to the market rate would mean an increase of about 40 percent. Machen said to be fair, hed rather wait until Fall 2013 to allow families considering UF to plan for the cost. Another side of the plan would introduce the same amount for tuition throughout their degree programs so families can plan for similar expenses over four years. Tuition would increase with incoming freshman classes. During the meeting, Machen opened the GatorCare. Some were concerned about whether offcampus and retired faculty would be covered under the plan. Machen said they would. Wherever you are, we got you covered, he said. Machen encouraged faculty to keep voicing their concerns and suggestions. He said the only everyone is if they continue to share. Bernard Mair, associate provost for undergraduate affairs, and Dave Kratzer, associate vice president for student affairs, gave an update on the anti-hazing task force. Mair and Kratzer said people will soon be able to look up organizations conduct history online to see if a hazing complaint has been made against it.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 2012 JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer The Gators return to March Madness was shrouded in uncertainty throughout an up-anddown season. After falling to Kentucky 71-67 eastern Conference Tournament on March 2, Florida had to wait 10 days to learn its postseason fate. Not until Monday did UF p.m., returning to The Big Dance After more than a week of tweaking their game and hoping for the chance to play for a national championship, the Gators ahead of them in the Buckeyes. Not only could UF move for iar. Like the Gators, the Buckeyes employ three-guard lineups, running a guard-oriented offense that gets the majority of its points They kind of do the same thing we do as far as using onna Allen added. Just practicing against that, with us using it as our strength, we already know how to guard and what we want However, that is where the similarities end for Florida and The two squads differences NCAA Tournament. While the Gators were happy just to get into The Big Dance, the Buckeyes expected more than a No. 8 seed from the selection committee after Big Ten Conference. a little disappointed with their UF already faces a tall task in the Gators will face this season. They are 2-8 in those games. Additionally, the Buckeyes game, respectively. Its a huge challenge for the Jordan Jones said.

who struggled mightily during his freshman campaign but will get a clean slate under new offensive coordinator Brent Pease. Despite battling through spring practice last year, Driskel entered the 2011 season No. 2 on the Gators depth chart behind redshirt senior John Brantley. He made his collegiate debut against Florida Atlantic, completing 4 of 6 passes for 42 yards and an interception in second-half garbage time. But nearly a month later, when Brantley sprained his ankle at the end of the called upon and looked just as lost as he said he was in the spring. I want to say that I was calm, but Id be lying, Driskel said. I was a little nervous. It was a big stage; I should have been more prepared. Driskel vows he will be more prepared this year, adding he is more maoffense, which is remaining largely the same under Pease apart from tweaked terminology and more shifts and presnap motions. First, Driskel must beat out Brissett, who took over the backup job following the Alabama game and looked far more poised running Floridas offense than Driskel did in his limited action. To be honest I wasnt (nervous), Brissett said. I mean, throughout practice I kind of like put myself in situations in my head like if it was a real game, and when I went out there I dont think I felt anything. the backup, even earning time as the Gators goal-line quarterback when Brantleys ankle was still recovering. Neither quarterback put up impressive numbers as freshmen, but regardless of results, Muschamp said the experience both gained last season will pay dividends moving forward, and he sees the intangibles both need to be great quar terbacks. Ive said it before: Unfortunately they played for us [last] year; fortunately they played for us [last] year, Muschamp said. Its two-fold. Its not an indictment on either young man. I think theyre really good players, but playing as a freshman at that position is different. Its different than any other position.

We have a lot of lefties and we just have to battle and compete every at-bat, Zunino said. I think were doing a great job of that this year. Although Floridas team batting average is .312, its team average against left-handed pitching is a notch lower at .298 not a sign of serious troubles by any means but a slight note when dealing with a team that has won 14 straight games by an average of 5.4 runs and is hitting .323 in March. throws hard but also has an unorthodox delivery, something they learned during his freshman season when he held them hitless during 2.1 innings of relief over three appearances. This time, there wont be any surprises, and senior right Weve got a few hard-throwing lefties on our squad, too, so I think seeing those guys in the fall and spring is prise us. Etc.: For the third straight weekend, sophomore righthander Jonathon Crawford will be Floridas Sunday starter as the Gators continue to hold sophomore Karsten Whitson out of action for what UF coach Kevin OSullivan has called precautionary reasons.
