Tuesdays presentation was about the economic incentives behind slavery, and Noll had already impersonated an ignorant high school teacher, cracked jokes about Florida State students and made a historical reference to Elvis Presley. And he was just warming up. Class can be both entertaining and intellectually challenging, Noll said. If Im just going to sit there and drone on, why should they even bother coming? His teaching methods may seem unorthodox, but theyre partly why Noll and two other UF professors were named among the 300 best professors in the U.S. by the Princeton Review. The education services comprofessor Mike Foley and mathematics professor Sergei Shabanov in its new book, The Best 300 Professors. The list was released Tuesday. The professors were chosen from a pool of about 42,000 professors across the globe. UF had the most representation out of the eight Florida colleges listed. Professors were chosen for the list based on student surveys, data from RateMyProfessors.com and input from school administrators.

Jude Rizzo, 21, killed Michael Crace, 20, at about 11:40 p.m. at the end of the stairs in their apartment at Mill Run Condominiums, located off Southwest 20th .38-caliber revolver, Crace aimed his own pistol and threatened to kill him, Rizzo told detectives. Rizzo shot Crace three times, hitting his roommates chest and neck. Then, Rizzo called police. Crace and Rizzo met about four months ago. They were dating women who also happened to be roommates. The two argued about property Monday, although GPD Detective Benjamin Smith would not elaborate. Crace, Rizzo and Rizzos 19-yearold brother, Joel, were living together in Apartment B at 2225 SW 39th Drive. Neighbors said they barely knew the three men and that they moved in recently Joel, who is also a Santa Fe student, for the Alachua County Court March 8.

The Gainesville City Commission will vote Thursday to change the hours of downtown mobile food stands, such as hot dog and taco trucks. The change will allow the stands to stay open until 3 a.m. The current law requires them to close at 10 p.m. Commission protocol requires commissioners to vote on the ordinance at least one more time at a future meeting before it goes into effect. However, the Gainesville Police Department loosely enforced the on-the-books rule because keeping the trucks open past 10 p.m. hasnt caused problems. Most weekends, a few downtown food stands stay open until after bars close at 2 a.m., said Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who also serves as chairwoman of the citys Public Safety Committee. The committee began discussing the change in September. In fact, she said, the Public Safety Committee didnt realize city law required the vendors to close by 10 p.m. until the change was brought up.City law change may mean food stands can serve until 3 a.m.SEE SHOOTING, PAGE 4 SEE FOOD TRUCKS, PAGE 4 SEE PROFS, PAGE 4He said he acted in self-defense

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterFormer Student Body President Ashton Charles is visiting UF, bringing her work to the United States as well as to The Gator Nation. The 24-year-old UF graduate has been in Gainesville for the past three weeks to get feedback on Tyba, a European Internet company that allows users to build custom professional websites. Charles, who was president from Summer 2010 to Spring 2011, led the movement to postpone block tuition at UF. After graduating in May 2011 with a bachelors degree in political science and a masters degree in management, she moved to Europe. Charles enrolled in a monthlong program at Vienna Univer sity of Economics and Business and then left for Spain, where she planned to teach English. Only a day after meeting Tyba co-founders Eiso Kant and Philip von Have at a park in Madrid, she was offered a job with their company. Now she promotes the website and is working to bring it to the U.S. She said she wanted to give students the opportunity to showcase their accomplishments in a professional manner. I did not know I would be pany, Charles said. She has been a director for business development for Tyba since September. Kant said Charles adds the U.S. angle that the seven-person company needed. Charles will be showing him the American university system this week. She said she scheduled meetings with administrators in different UF colleges to discuss Tyba and catch up. She also presented the website to student organizations such as the Student Senate and the Reitz Scholars Program. Kant said that because Tyba uses peoples names, it appears high in a Google search. Users can edit on the site, which starts outs free. For $3.95 a month, users can create their own domain name. He said the site currently has about 500 users. Charles said her experience in Student Government and as associate producer of communications for Gator Growl has helped her tremendously. I use skills acquired [at UF] every day, she said.

PERsSONaALITYFormer Student Body president brings Internet company to US UF SPENT $681,548 ON RESEARCH IN 2010. KRISTEN MORRELLAlligator Contributing WriterUF was ranked one of the Top 25 schools for research spending, and a university spokesman said it shows the schools prestige. In a survey conducted by the National Science Foundation that looked at data from 2010, UF ranked 21st for the most money spent on research. In 2009, UF was 22nd. The university spent $681,548 on research in 2010, according to the survey, which was released last month. UF was the only Florida school listed in the Top 25. The University of South Florida was 50th, the University of Miami was 74th and Florida State University was 84th. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the rank means students have access to faculty who are doing major research. This adds a great deal of value to their education, their experience at the university and to their long-range plans, he said. Rebecca Saunders, a 20-year-old food science and human nutrition sophomore, said this shows the schools research priorities. It shows that UF doesnt just want people to get As in their classes, Saunders said.UF ranks in Top 25 in nation for spending on research SARAH ARRAZOLAAlligator Contributing WriterGator Rater, UFs online faculty evaluations, becomes available to students this month. This semester, administrators would like students to remember that their opinions about professors matter. Although participation increased 5.9 percent from Summer 2011 to Fall 2011, about 75 percent of UF students were not aware that student responses are used in professors tenure, promotion and salary decisions, according to a Gator Rater student survey. Id like students to fully realize the value of their feedback to the educational process for current and future Gators, UF Evaluations Coordinator Donna Johnson said. Their input each semester helps ensure continual improvement of courses here at UF. Johnson, who taught at UF for several years, said even when she taught 400 students in a semester, she believed their feedback was vital to improving the course. The online evaluation system also goes hand-in-hand with UFs sustainability initiatives. Gator Rater will save UF about $330,000 a year, equivalent to yearly tuition and fees for about 60 under graduate students, according to information ning and Research. Evaluations are already open for some others will open later this month. Results from last semester are also available. Evaluations close on the last day of the class.Evaluations open this monthJohnson

website through which students publicly grade the quality of their professors. Noll, Foley and Shabanov each have an Overall Quality rating of more than 90 percent on the website. Hes what you want in a professor, said Kelly Vidal, a 19-yearold history and political science major in Nolls class. Even in a two-hour period, he always keeps everyones attention. Noll said he encourages his students to take what they learn in class and use that information to challenge their own beliefs. He also wants them to question his teaching. For Foley, entertaining his Reporting students isnt just part of his job, its a lifestyle. Hes been known to dance from one side of his lecture hall to the other to get a lethargic classs attention. Foleys class may be fun, but its also serious. His easiness score on RateMyProfessors.com is 50 percent. He said hes had students write him, Thank you for kicking my ass. For professors hoping to be included in the next volume of the publication, Foleys advice was simple. I think it helps if youre funny, he said. Its like sugar with medicine. You can get the facts down if you can throw a joke in there. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 AP PhotoTwisterA tornado touches down in Lancaster, Texas. Tornadoes tore through the Dallas area Tuesday, peeling roofs Police and downtown restaurants comfortable with proposed changesPolice were comfortable with the food trucks staying open, Mastrodicasa said. They are comfortable with the change. Some downtown restaurant managers and bartenders think the new hours of operation could jump-start a food cart revolution in Gainesville and lead to a more vibrant downtown culture. Warren Oakes, owner and manager of Boca Fiesta, a downtown Mexican restaurant, said he hopes the new hours will motivate more people to open food stands in the area. He said he might even open one for Boca Fiesta. Big Lous Pizzeria also serves food until 3 a.m., but only on Fridays and Saturdays. Assistant Manager Jordan Pfeiffer said she is not worried about late-night food vendors affecting business. Instead, she said, she hopes to work with them to keep the downtown economy running smoothly. A downtown bartender for 30 years, Tom Blake said allowing food stands to stay open late would distract rowdy Now they have a chili dog to focus on instead of getting into trouble, said Blake, a bartender at Lillians Music Store.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 THE EVENT WILL BE FROM 4 P.M. TO 7 P.M. TODAY. JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterA Sweet-16 celebration will hit the downtown plaza today, but this one will have more vegetables than cake. The Union Street Farmers Mar ket will celebrate its 16th anniver sary from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, 111 E University Ave. Established in 1996, Union Street Farmers Market started out with about eight farmers who met once a week at Sun Central Plaza to sell goods. Charlie Lybrand, director of Union Street Farmers Market, said the market now has about 55 vendors a week. The celebration will have a cooking demonstration by Stefanie Samara Hamblen, owner of Hogtown HomeGrown and The Illegal Jam Company. Hamblens will offer tips on how to eat more vegetables, and she will give out free samples of sweet potato curry, BBQ tofu with peas. Hamblen said she has been shopping at Union Street Farmers Market for about 12 years. Lybrand said they wanted the market to be more expressive of the community. We have so much talent in this community, he said. Were unique.Farmers market to celebrate Sweet 16 SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterStudent Senate President Aundre Price said at Tuesdays meeting that his goal for Senate is to reach out to and improve communication with the UF Student Body. He presented his legislative agenda, co-authored by Senate President pro tempore Logan Harrison, to about 80 senators at the meeting. After the meeting, Price said he wants to accomplish close to 100 percent of the items he put forth on his agenda. I do have the entire summer, he said. Some of the items outlined in his agenda are presenting upcoming bills in the Gator Times for students, recruiting students to help freshmen move into dorms, spending a day at Lake Wauburg with freshmen and hosting more town hall meetings. Price also touched on academics, aiming to improve and increase funding for the Broward Teaching Center and create a medical school recreation room. After the meeting, Price said these ideas might take longer than his term, which will end with the fall elections. He also said he discussed getting students involved in UFs anti-hazing task force subcommittees with Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer and Associate Provost of Undergraduate Affairs Bernard Mair. Senators could serve on subcommittees such as institutional and statewide; band, ROTC and athletics; and student organizations. Price wrote in an email that the subcommittees will review the hazing policies and regulations of each area. After the agenda presentation, senators unanimously passed a bill to express condolences for the death of Trayvon Martin. Last week, senators asked the bills authors to revise it. The authors took out white and Latino to describe George Zimmerman, who says he shot Trayvon in self-defense. Some senators were confused as to why Zimmermans race was removed when the bill still states that Trayvon was AfricanAmerican. Sen. Christina Bonarrigo said Travyons description remained for biographical purposes. His background and interests are also in the bill, she said. The bill was passed with an amendment to send it to Trayvons parents. The Senate also unanimously approved the 2012-13 Student Government Funded Academic Budget. Senators will likely vote on the student organizations budget next week. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator. org.Student Senate talks outreach, budgetMair

Tuesdays question: Will you go see Erin Andrews? 110 TOTAL VOTES49% YES 51% NO Government regulation should be curtailedThis past week, the Supreme Court listened to testimonies to judge the constitutionality of nationalized health care, or Obamacare, the moniker given by its right-wing opposition. Such proceedings a room full of lawyers debating the wording of a 2,700-page document, which will go unread by most of the congressmen who voted on it (but you can hardly blame them) bring out the worst in our current legislative climate. One is reminded of Winston Churchills thoughtful quote, If you have 10,000 regulations, you lose all respect for the law. It is odd to think that our Constitution, the most erudite formulation of laws ever assembled by mankind, is small care code is an indiscernible mess, written by lawyers to be understood by lawyers. Such foppish elitism can make one pine for Savannah, Ga., in 1734, when all lawyers were banned from the city to be free from, as James Oglethorpe called them, the pest and scourge of mankind. Is it truly healthy for a nation to have any code of law that cannot be understood by the common man? As the years pass and our bills and regulations get longer and longer, one cannot help but think that we have departed from the system of common law forged by our ancestors and rather embraced Napoleonic law a system of government that descends from the rulers to the masses, rather than the other way around. Everywhere we look, there is evidence of intensive government regulation. Our soda cans display every ingredient known to man (most of them unpronounceable), occupancy limits are plastered in every auditorium and we cannot even travel by airplane without the risk that an er rant piece of metal will give reason for us to be stripped and humiliated before a slack-jawed band of uniform-wearing ingrates. Is this the freedom our fathers envisioned? If it is, we might as well begin quartering redcoats in our dorm rooms. Some regulations, to be sure, are reasonable I wouldnt want to drive on a highway without speed limits. But even that proves that the best regulations are those than can be understood by everyone. You dont need a law degree to know that if your speedometer says 90 when you pass a sign that says 60, you need to slow down. Yet most regulations are not only unnecessary, but also condescending in a way that would make Napoleon proud. Do we really need a list of ingredients on a can of Mountain Dew to know its bad for us? And do we truly need a taxpayer-supported government employee to inform us when a room is crowded? Our government seems to think that without its rules and regulations descending from on high, we would devolve to the Victorian era of sweatshops and chimney sweeps. There is a practical way to limit government intrusion and return us to the era of common law. Ironically, it requires a new law, but it would be worth it: No law or regulation, at the State or Federal level, can be longer than sentence each, but one cannot expect mankind to have the succinct wisdom of the Almighty). No longer would every legislator need a law degree to understand what they vote for and neither would the aver age citizen. We would live more freely, and our government would rule more justly. Such a law is unlikely to be passed, for it would end the current bacchanalian legislative orgy, Luke Bailey is a history junior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays.Internet InsanityTrolling is free speech, tooHave you ever been annoyed by something that someone posted on your Facebook wall? Have you ever seen anyone using profanity in a Twitter post? In some states, new laws might make these actions illegal under the guise of combating cyberbullying. They will also likely create a legal nightmare if they become law and are enforced. A bill making its way through the Alabama State Legislature, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, would criminalize transmitting, posting, displaying or disseminating, through electronic communications with the intent to harass, annoy or alarm. The Arizona legislature passed a bill Tuesday that could send people who annoy or offend to jail for up to six months, according to ABC News. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has yet to sign the bill into law. While the desire to curb cyberbullying is noble, going after speech on the Internet could have some negative, unintended consequences. Neither bill explains what it means to annoy or offend, a vagueness that makes almost anything that occurs on the Inter net subject to criminal charges. According to FIRE, if the Alabama bill becomes law, it would be a Class A misdemeanor to send an email to classmates lampooning Canadians for their usage of the word eh or their inexplicable love of ice hockey if that email has the effect of substantially embarrassing or humiliating a Canadian student in the eyes of his fellow university classmates. The Arizona law also suffers from the same level of troubling vagueness. In a letter to the governor of Arizona, the activist group Media Coalition argued that the bill is not limited to a one-to-one does not need to be repetitive or even unwanted. There is no requirement that the recipient or subject of the speech actually feel offended, annoyed or scared. Instead, the language of the bill implies that the state can go fensive. The letter continues by arguing that the bill does not make clear that the communication must be intended to offend or anAccording to the Media Coalitions interpretation of the bill, even if you post something online that was not meant to offend or annoy, the state could still potentially pursue criminal charges offensive. Not only do these pieces of legislation completely squelch free speech on the Internet, they serve as perfect examples of well-intended laws with unintentional consequences.

When professors are unjust, confront them about it directly and diplomatiIf they dont give in, contrary to what Skambis claims, you have a number of tive to your professors to act more judiciously because if their class sizes are ond, you can vent your frustrations in you can write a letter to their department chair and let them know how you By channeling your frustrations constructively, you can help hold unfair professors unaccountable without resorting to plagiarism or other academic David Giancaspro is a graduate student in the Spanish department at UF.There are better ways to stick it to the man than cheatingGuest columnDavid GiancasproSpeaking Out Sometimes those who are assumed to be the most truthful clergymen and other Indeed, it seemed like the Vatican was ready for open discussion and possibly enlightenment the Responsible Stem Cell Research Congress researchers from around the world, many of whose work involves the use of human embryonic stem cells, which makes them sinners in But at the end of March, the Vatican canceled Benedettini, blamed organizational, logistical After examining the controversy surrounding the conference, however, it seems there was more to the cancellation than the Vatican is letfor Life called the cancellation an enormous emy for Life, who felt that the presence on its program of so many speakers, including the keynote speaker, committed to embryonic stem cell research, was a betrayal of the mission of It turns out that enlightenment was not what actually held similar conferences the past two years, but this one was different in that some of the most prominent embryonic stem-cell researchers in the world were to attend, and they were not going to tame their speeches to apdent of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine in San Francisco and one of the invited researchers, said, I think the only interpredisappointing that they are unwilling to When the Vatican hosts events like these, its not because it wants to be enlightened or give researchers a fair clearly hosted this event to assert its own ideas and to align public perception of stem cell reAnd when the Vatican is being disingenuous about its motives for hosting such events, associate professor of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, said, I personally am very a church and one at which only certain types of Although the Catholic Church doesnt have the best track record with science might we remember the infamous affair with Galileo, who was deemed a heretic for supporting the theory that the solar system centered around the sun the Catholic Church is not historiIn fact, the Catholic Church has given a lot to science, from Jesuit scientists to historical support and contemporary funding of scienBut when it comes to modern biological research, the Vatican must know that it is not the Once the Vatican is also ready and willing for open dialogue, it will have the opportunity to learn a lot from the researchers they call sinners and bridge the manufactured gap between Abdul Zalikha is a biology and English junior at UF.

THE PANELS WILL REDUCE BETAS ELECTRICITY BILL BY 20 PERCENT. JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterThe roof of UFs Beta Theta Pi fraternity house isnt littered with red cups, beer bottles or pizza boxes. Instead, its covered with solar panels. The Gamma Xi chapter of Beta installed a $44,000 solar array last week. The 10-kilowatt system is the Brian Brasington, president of the chapters housing corporation. Sustainability studies junior Stuart Block, 20, was the brain behind the venture. Block approached the fraternitys housing executives with a solar panel proposal in November. I just thought if people could see solar panels on our house that nitely contribute to the sustainability movement, Block said. After getting the go-ahead from Brasington and talking with UFs covered Power Production Management Inc., a Gainesville energy-solutions business. The company helped the frater nity apply for and receive a $22,000 rebate from Progress Energy for the project, he said. UF loaned Beta $10,000 through an education fund. Fraternity brothers will work through energy-related UF community service. Power Product Management workers installed the 42 panels last week, and theyll be turned on within two weeks, Block said. Each panel has the energy potential of 245 watts. The system will reduce the fraternitys electric bill by about 20 percent, Block said. The fraternity should recoup the expenses in about six years time. Block said he hopes solar panel systems will spread throughout UF. First, hes got to face one more challenge: keeping Beta brothers away from the panels. Ill have to get people to refrain from throwing things onto the roof, he joked.

Gates open at 11:30 a.m.UF-FSU facing off todayThe annual rivalry between the Gators and Noles hits the softball diamond today in Tallahassee. See story, page 15. Brett Oakes / Spinnaker BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer JACKSONVILLE Kevin OSullivan could do nothing but shake his head and shrug his shoulders as he looked around at an emptying Harmon Stadium. Hitters who had been strong all year hadnt hit, formerly solid pitchers had given up runs in six consecutive innings midweek game of the year. The opponent was North Florida a team Florida is surprisingly now 5-5 alltime against. This was a bad night, OSullivan said. You have nights where you just play terrible, and we played terrible. In front of the second-largest crowd (2,144) in UNF history, No. 1 Florida (245) fell to North Florida (18-13) 10-5. The surroundings were harsh and homely in comparison to recent trips to pristine Southeastern Conference parks during an eight-game road trip, but the play on The Gators needed eight pitchers to navigate through the game, struggling to throw strikes but also facing defensive woes when the ball was put in play. Austin Maddox committed two errors to add to an 0-for-4 night at the plate in of his own tacked on to a 1-for-4 showinning. We obviously needed some better performances from some of our guys, We came out and we just didnt do what we needed to do. Floridas bullpen became a black hole, dragging out the game by walking four and throwing 145 pitches in seven innings. Four pitchers (Bobby Poyner, Daniel Gibson, Corey Stump and Ryan Harris) failed to last an entire inning, with all except Harris being charged with an earned run. Poyner gave up four hits and three earned runs in the second without recording an out. We couldnt throw fastballs for strikes, OSullivan said. We werent even trying to go to the corners. We nibbled and unfortunately North Florida made us pay for it. The Ospreys got a brief taste of what the Gators pitching staff can be when sophomore righthander Karsten Whitson returned to the time since Feb. 26. In what he called a rehab start after recovering from a groin injury and arm fatigue, Whitson told OSullivan he would need inning of work. He used eight. My command was good, my slider was good, so it was very promising to see, Whitson said. Hopefully this weekend Ill start (against LSU). North Florida hitters had no answer for his slider, striking out twice after a leadoff grounder to shortstop. That was the bright moment of the night for us, OSullivan said. Unfortunately for the Gators, it was the lone bright spot. After going up 1-0 frustrating trend carried throughout the game, as UF recorded 10 hits but left nine runners on base. As far as moving on, it has to happen right now, OSullivan said. Its the worst game weve played all year, quite frankly, coupled with a well-played game by North Florida. Obviously the result indicated both of those things.Top-ranked Florida ends road trip with worst game all yearEND oOF GReEGULATIoONOver the past few seasons, Floridas spring practice system has given rise to a recurring phenomenon. I call it the Guy to look out for but not really because hes probably never going to do anything anyway syndrome. Were still working on the name. It happens because spring is a time when all of our knowledge is based on quotes and hearsay, leading to occasional bits of misinformation. Every year, one or two guys reportedly shoot up the depth chart, impressing coaches and players and inspir ing irrational hope for the fall. In 2009, it was center Sam Robey. Robey did not play a single down during his freshman season before getting rave reviews the following spring. There was even talk that Maurkice Pouncey would move to guard to make room for Robey. NFL Pro Bowl center Maur kice Pouncey switch positions for Robey. Hes really come on, coach Urban Meyer said. He Robey played a few snaps in the fall and then slid back into obscurity. Hes actually still on the roster, believe it or not. Last year, it was wideout Quinton Dunbar, who missed his entire freshman season with an injury before rising from seventh on the depth chart into the starting lineup during the spring. Frankie Hammond said he was the most eye-opening player in spring practices. During the fall, Dunbar totaled four catches for 34 yards in seven Southeastern Conference games. With that in mind, Ive been on the lookout for the next Fostering fake phenoms one of UFs favorite spring pastimes GGreg LLucatwitter: @gregluca seeSEE GRGREGG, PAGeE 14Whitson Demps wins awardAfter posting the nations fastest all-conditions time (10.01) in the 100m during last weeks meet, senior Jeff Demps was announced Tuesday as the recipient of the SECs Co-Mens Runner of the Week award.

14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 Robey/Dunbar. Remember, this player has to come from nothing, rise to prominence in spring, and then go back to nothing before making any tangible impact. So Ronald Powell, who has been named defensive player of the day in both scrimmages, and by all other measures would be a viable candidate, is ineligible. Being the No. 1 overall recruit put too big of a spotlight on him from the get-go. Were looking for true obscurity. Even Dunbar isnt up for reelection, because being the subject of all that spring hype put him in the public eye. With that in mind, here are some guys to be wary of Jaylen Watkins, junior cornerback: As the teams ninth-leading tackler last year, Watkins was a little too important to be a true candidate. Still, reports say hes improved his physicality and playmaking, with Will Muschamp saying hes done some nice things and Hammond calling him the hardest DB to go against. Hammonds praise was the death knell for Dunbar. Will Frankie strike again? Loucheiz Purifoy, sophomore cor nerback: Purifoy was pretty much a special-teams-only guy last year, but his improvement has impressed Watkins, and Muschamp said hes done some nice things, and Dan Quinn said he is a candidate to start opposite Marcus Roberson. Omarius Hines, senior running back (I guess?): Hines, Mike Gillislee, Omar Hunter and Jon Harrison have all praised champ said hes done some nice things. But hes barely ever played running back before and touched the ball eight times last season. So good luck with that. Antonio Morrison, four-star freshman linebacker: Quinn is impressed with his physicality, Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins have both raved about him, and Muschamp said hes done some good things. Even though that might actually be better than nice things, dont get too excited. Morrison will be trapped behind Bostic, Jenkins and Michael Taylor on the depth chart all season. Hes the early favorite to win these honors next spring. Latroy Pittman, freshman four-star wide receiver: We have a winner! Although Ive never seen him play, he has all the makings of Dunbar 2.0. But because hes a more physical, blocking wide receiver, nobody is making the comparison. scrimmage and was the player of the day Saturday, prompting Muschamp to say that hes done some nice things and is moving up the depth chart. But hes still never played a down, and wed be crazy to make the same mistake twice, regardless of how many nice things he does in the spring. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. GREG, from page 13 PREVIEWING THE ORANGE AND BLUE DEBUTWith the Gators annual spring game, the Orange and Blue Debut, scheduled for this Saturday, we at alligatorSports want to get you prepared. Each day this week, we will follow as the spring season comes to a close. Today, we look at the running backs, the pass rush and that dreaded s-word soft. SOMETHING TO LOOK FOR DURING SATURDAYS GAME: 3. The play of the running backsWhile getting a good grasp on what Floridas overall offense will look like in the fall might be tough to garner in one spring game, the scrimmage should give a glimpse at the Gators depth at running back. Florida approach with seniors Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps to more of a power-based running game in offensive coordinator Brent Peases could be some new wrinkles and deviations to where and how the running backs are used in their formations. Coach Will Muschamp said this week that senior Mike Gillislee is the likely starter heading into the season, so dont expect him to be carrying a large load in the game. Instead, watch for 5-foot-11, 210-pound sophomore Mack Brown to get extra touches as well as some of the Gators recent converts to tailback. Former tight end Omarius Hines and Chris Juice Johnson, who played linebacker last season, will both need to make positive impressions in the spring game if they want to keep their position switches permanent. Also, keep an eye on how Pease uses fullbacks Trey Burton and Hunter Joyer. As a freshman, Joyer might have been Floridas best option as a shortyardage back despite his limited carries. AREA THAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: 3. Pass rushWhen Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley sat onstage at media day before the 2010 season, proclaiming themselves the football version of the Miami Heats Big 3, fans and media alike ate it up. Three top-10 overall recruits would solidify Floridas defensive line for years to come, imposing fears on opposing quarterbacks. But that hasnt happened. Floyd has been forced to play outside at end because of depth issues, yet developed into an every-down force and Powell has been anything but the dominant pass-rushing end everyone expected from the nations top recruit. Southeastern Conference last season with 28 sacks, but they never consistently pressured the quarterback and opponents never had to gameplan for their pass rush. Muschamp and Dan Quinn have both spoke about the need for improvement in that area this season, and it starts with Powell, Easley and Floyd taking the next step in their development. Although the Gators have several pass-rushing prospects enrolling in August, incoming freshmen, even highly touted ones like top-10 overall recruit Jonathan Bullard, rarely make an impact Brown Powell STORYLINE TO WATCH: 3. Developing toughnessAfter the Gators ended the 2011 regular season with their sixth loss, which came at the hands of turnovers, Muschamp exploded in his postgame interview. He called his players soft, said they couldnt run the football and pointed out that they lacked the ability to control the line of scrimmage. It was an all-out assault designed to inspire change. Challenging the Gators to grow up mentally and physically was Muschamps best coaching move to date. Anyone could see that Florida was pushed around last season, bullied even. The offensive line has taken the brunt of the criticism, and for good reason. At times, the play up front resembled the turnstiles fans enter through at most stadiums. Alabama and LSU, and even South Carolina, controlled the line of scrimmage in dominant wins last year. So did Georgia, which held UF to negative rushing yards something that was unheard of under Urban Meyer. With Muschamp has continued to levy the soft label as motivation this spring. And, according to him, there has been progress. But will that progress translate be watching.

UF HAS NOT HAD MORE THAN THREE CARDS IN LAST 12 GAMES. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators defenders were tired. They were having to run more than usual to account for the free attacker that resulted from being down a defender. After Florida received six yellow cards in its 14-5 win against Jacksonville on Feb. 15, the defense decided to make sure it would not be shorthanded that many times again. I dont think it was anything we said, coach Amanda OLeary said. It was our defense sitting down with our offense and really just laying down the law. Since the Jacksonville game, No. 4 Florida (12-2, 2-0 American Lacrosse Conference) has been able to limit reckless plays that put the team a player down for two minutes at a time. The defenders wanted to make were making an effort to not place an unnecessary burden on them. At a practice, the defenders came up and talked to us about it, said. They were like, We cant get any yellow cards. Its hard to play man-down defense. Just try your best not to swing and hold your body on redefending. players have cleaned up their play since, and the Gators have not had more than three yellow cards in any of their last 12 games and did not have a single card in three of them. OLeary said that all of the players have done a better job of not swinging wildly and staying in front of attackers. Its making a conscious effort to play within the rules, OLeary said. We need to control ourselves and play better defense inside (the 8-meter arc) and in transition as well. remind the offense during games to not get overly aggressive. If we get a yellow card, theyll start screaming, Stop swinging, say it again. To make the players more aware result in a yellow card, the coaches have called more fouls in practice. The coaches also call out when a play could be a yellow card even if they dont blow the whistle. Junior defender Sam Farrell said the tightly called practices have been a good way to reinforce proper technique to the defenders and discourage wildly swinging their sticks. Thats the main thing just not swinging, Farrell said. When youre going to double or when youre playing on someone sometimes its just so tempting to swing, but in this level everyone is really good at protecting their stick so were just going to get a foul. OLeary said it comes down to the players not making dumb decisions, and the Gators are getting the message. I think thats been the key to our games lately, junior attacker Ash ALLIGATOR, 15Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Gators benefitting from smart play, limited yellow cardssSOFTballBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer Although the Gators and Seminoles rivalry has proved conlines has proved to be just as competitive. UF is 15-13 overall against their in-state rival. With No. 6 Florida (31-4) riding an eight-game winning streak against No. 21 Florida State (33-6), there wont be a lack of hatred today at 6 p.m. in Tallahassee. The Gators have faced the Seminoles three times in the past two years, winning every time. We hate FSU, Kelsey Horton said. I know some people that play for them and right before the game, were smiling and waving but once it starts we want to kill them. And as soon as important to us, it is a big rivalry. its Atlantic Coast Conference foe. And extending that success against Florida State is especially important with UF losing to South Florida on March 28. The teams self-proclaimed vocal leader, sophomore Cheyenne Coyle, still feels the sting of the last couple losses and wants to redeem those with a win on Wednesday. Were all excited to get a midweek game against FSU, especially after last weeks loss, Coyle said. We want to show we can get a midweek win. And of course, its FSU. So anytime we play FSU, I think theres going to be that rivalry there. This year, the annual matchup returns to the state capital where the Gators are an even 7-7. And with seven fresh faces on coach Tim Waltons squad this year, a trip to JoAnne Graf Field will be a eye-opening experience. With UF in town, the Seminoles drew a school-record 933 fans in their 1000-seat stadium on April 14, 2010. They are a rowdy crowd, Coyle said. And they are inus so far for preparing us for FSU, since a lot of our players havent seen it before. One of those players, freshman Lauren Haeger, picked up on Saturday against Georgia to grab her 10th victory of the season in the circle. Whether or not she is pitching, Haeger is eager to leave behind her the losing mindset and move on to helping her team climb up in the win column. Ive always heard a lot about Florida State, Haeger said. They are very aggressive and they dont care who you are. Were not going to take anyone lightly, if they are conference or not. So you have to really focus and do what you are there to do.Florida-Florida State rivalry hits the diamond today in Tallahassee KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Writer competes as a runner, jumper or thrower. event athletes main focus is the heptathlon. The heptathlon involves seven events long jump, javelin throw, 800m, 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put and 200m that are spread out over the two days. Its very challenging at times, but I need to have a strong mindset and just be willing to give every ounce of energy that I have in those two days, Harrell said. Harrell. As a senior in high school, Harrell won the Mississippi Class 5A State title in the 100m hurdles, 300m hurdles, high jump, 4x400m, 4x800m and 4x1,600m. She also competed in the heptathlon at the Junior Olympics. Now its just natural for me, Harrell said. Ive always been a hard worker, so it just came easy to me. Harrell really shines in competitions with her second-day performances. While the other women start to lose energy, Harrell is just hitting her stride. Harrell was able to move up from fourth jump and javelin throw on the second day of competition. Every meet that Harrell has been entered in the heptathlon, she has improved her standing on the second day of competition. going off of adrenaline, so I wont really feel anything until that night and everything just hits me, Harrell said. It usually takes me a good two days to get over it. practicing all seven events, she wouldnt trade it for just focusing on one. When I do all of those events, I know that everybody cant do it, so its a challenge to me and gives me that extra edge and that extra boost of energy, Harrell said.

The Gainesville City Commission will vote Thursday to change the hours of downtown mobile food stands, such as hot dog and taco trucks. The change will allow the stands to stay open until 3 a.m. The current law requires them to close at 10 p.m. Commission protocol requires commissioners to vote on the ordinance at least one more time at a future meeting before it goes into effect. However, the Gainesville Police Department loosely enforced the on-the-books rule because keeping the trucks open past 10 p.m. hasnt caused problems. Most weekends, a few downtown food stands stay open until after bars close at 2 a.m., said Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa, who also serves as chairwoman of the citys Public Safety Committee.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterFormer Student Body President Ashton Charles is visiting UF, bringing her work to the United States as well as to The Gator Nation. The 24-year-old UF graduate has been in Gainesville for the past three weeks to get feedback on Tyba, a European Internet company that allows users to build custom professional websites. Charles, who was president from Summer 2010 to Spring 2011, led the movement to postpone block tuition at UF. After graduating in May 2011 with a bachelors degree in political science and a masters degree in management, she moved to Europe. Charles enrolled in a monthlong program at Vienna Univer sity of Economics and Business and then left for Spain, where she planned to teach English. Only a day after meeting Tyba co-founders Eiso Kant and Philip von Have at a park in Madrid, she was offered a job with their company. Now she promotes the website and is working to bring it to the U.S. She said she wanted to give students the opportunity to showcase their accomplishments in a professional manner. I did not know I would be pany, Charles said. She has been a director for business development for Tyba since September. Kant said Charles adds the U.S. angle that the seven-person company needed. Charles will be showing him the American university system this week. She said she scheduled meetings with administrators in different UF colleges to discuss Tyba and catch up. She also presented the website to student organizations such as the Student Senate and the Reitz Scholars Program. Kant said that because Tyba uses peoples names, it appears high in a Google search. Users can edit on the site, which starts outs free. For $3.95 a month, users can create their own domain name. He said the site currently has about 500 users. Charles said her experience in Student Government and as associate producer of communications for Gator Growl has helped her tremendously. I use skills acquired [at UF] every day, she said.

PERSONALITYFormer Student Body president brings Internet company to US UF SPENT $681,548 ON RESEARCH IN 2010. KRISTEN MORRELLAlligator Contributing WriterUF was ranked one of the Top 25 schools for research spending, and a university spokesman said it shows the schools prestige. In a survey conducted by the National Science Foundation that looked at data from 2010, UF ranked 21st for the most money spent on research. In 2009, UF was 22nd. The university spent $681,548 on research in 2010, according to the survey, which was released last month. UF was the only Florida school listed in the Top 25. The University of South Florida was 50th, the University of Miami was 74th and Florida State University was 84th. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the rank means students have access to faculty who are doing major research. This adds a great deal of value to their education, their experience at the university and to their long-range plans, he said. Rebecca Saunders, a 20-year-old food science and human nutrition sophomore, said this shows the schools research priorities. It shows that UF doesnt just want people to get As in their classes, Saunders said.UF ranks in Top 25 in nation for spending on research SARAH ARRAZOLAAlligator Contributing WriterGator Rater, UFs online faculty evaluations, becomes available to students this month. This semester, administrators would like students to remember that their opinions about professors matter. Although participation increased 5.9 percent from Summer 2011 to Fall 2011, about 75 percent of UF students were not aware that student responses are used in professors tenure, promotion and salary decisions, according to a Gator Rater student survey. Id like students to fully realize the value of their feedback to the educational process for current and future Gators, UF Evaluations Coordinator Donna Johnson said. Their input each semester helps ensure continual improvement of courses here at UF. Johnson, who taught at UF for several years, said even when she taught 400 students in a semester, she believed their feedback was vital to improving the course. The online evaluation system also goes hand-in-hand with UFs sustainability initiatives. Gator Rater will save UF about $330,000 a year, equivalent to yearly tuition and fees for about 60 under graduate students, according to information ning and Research. Evaluations are already open for some others will open later this month. Results from last semester are also available.

Tornadoes tore through the Dallas area Tuesday, peeling roofs Police and downtown restaurants comfortable with proposed changesPolice were comfortable with the food trucks staying open, Mastrodicasa said. They are comfortable with the change. Some downtown restaurant managers and bartenders think the new hours of operation could jump-start a food cart revolution in Gainesville and lead to a more vibrant downtown culture. Warren Oakes, owner and manager of Boca Fiesta, a downtown Mexican restaurant, said he hopes the new hours will motivate more people to open food stands in the area. He said he might even open one for Boca Fiesta. Big Lous Pizzeria also serves food until 3 a.m., but only on Fridays and Saturdays.

JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterA Sweet-16 celebration will hit the downtown plaza today, but this one will have more vegetables than cake. The Union Street Farmers Mar ket will celebrate its 16th anniver sary from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, 111 E University Ave. Established in 1996, Union Street Farmers Market started out with about eight farmers who met once a week at Sun Central Plaza to sell goods. Charlie Lybrand, director of Union Street Farmers Market, said the market now has about 55 vendors a week. The celebration will have a cooking demonstration by Stefanie Samara Hamblen, owner of Hogtown HomeGrown and The Illegal Jam Company. Hamblens will offer tips on how to eat more vegetables, and she will give out free samples of sweet potato curry, BBQ tofu with peas. Hamblen said she has been shopping at Union Street Farmers Market for about 12 years. Lybrand said they wanted the market to be more expressive of the community.

He presented his legislative agenda, co-authored by Senate President pro tempore Logan Harrison, to about 80 senators at the meeting. After the meeting, Price said he wants to accomplish close to 100 percent of the items he put forth on his agenda. I do have the entire summer, he said. Some of the items outlined in his agenda are presenting upcoming bills in the Gator Times for students, recruiting students to help freshmen move into dorms, spending a day at Lake Wauburg with freshmen and hosting more town hall meetings. Price also touched on academics, aiming to improve and increase funding for the Broward Teaching Center and create a medical school recreation room. After the meeting, Price said these ideas might take longer than his term, which will end with the fall elections. He also said he discussed getting students involved in UFs anti-hazing task force subcommittees with Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer and Associate Provost of Undergraduate Affairs Bernard Mair. Senators could serve on subcommittees such as institutional and statewide; band, ROTC and athletics; and student organizations. Price wrote in an email that the subcommittees will review the hazing policies and regulations of each area. After the agenda presentation, senators unanimously passed a bill to express condolences for the death of Trayvon Martin. Last week, senators asked the bills authors to revise it. The authors took out white and Latino to describe George Zimmerman, who says he shot Trayvon in self-defense. Some senators were confused as to why Zimmermans race was removed when the bill still states that Trayvon was AfricanAmerican. Sen. Christina Bonarrigo said Travyons description remained for biographical purposes. His background and interests are also in the bill, she said. The bill was passed with an amendment to send it to Trayvons parents. The Senate also unanimously approved the 2012-13 Student Government Funded Academic Budget. Senators will likely vote on the student organizations budget next week. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator. org.Student Senate talks outreach, budgetMair

Tuesdays question: Will you go see Erin Andrews? 110 TOTAL VOTES49% YES 51% NO Government regulation should be curtailedThis past week, the Supreme Court listened to testimonies to judge the constitutionality of nationalized health care, or Obamacare, the moniker given by its right-wing opposition. Such proceedings a room full of lawyers debating the wording of a 2,700-page document, which will go unread by most of the congressmen who voted on it (but you can hardly blame them) bring out the worst in our current legislative climate. One is reminded of Winston Churchills thoughtful quote, If you have 10,000 regulations, you lose all respect for the law. It is odd to think that our Constitution, the most erudite formulation of laws ever assembled by mankind, is small care code is an indiscernible mess, written by lawyers to be understood by lawyers. Such foppish elitism can make one pine for Savannah, Ga., in 1734, when all lawyers were banned from the city to be free from, as James Oglethorpe called them, the pest and scourge of mankind. Is it truly healthy for a nation to have any code of law that cannot be understood by the common man? As the years pass and our bills and regulations get longer and longer, one cannot help but think that we have departed from the system of common law forged by our ancestors and rather embraced Napoleonic law a system of government that descends from the rulers to the masses, rather than the other way around. Everywhere we look, there is evidence of intensive government regulation. Our soda cans display every ingredient known to man (most of them unpronounceable), occupancy limits are plastered in every auditorium and we cannot even travel by airplane without the risk that an er rant piece of metal will give reason for us to be stripped and humiliated before a slack-jawed band of uniform-wearing ingrates. Is this the freedom our fathers envisioned? If it is, we might as well begin quartering redcoats in our dorm rooms. Some regulations, to be sure, are reasonable I wouldnt want to drive on a highway without speed limits. But even that proves that the best regulations are those than can be understood by everyone. You dont need a law degree to know that if your speedometer says 90 when you pass a sign that says 60, you need to slow down. Yet most regulations are not only unnecessary, but also condescending in a way that would make Napoleon proud. Do we really need a list of ingredients on a can of Mountain Dew to know its bad for us? And do we truly need a taxpayer-supported government employee to inform us when a room is crowded? Our government seems to think that without its rules and regulations descending from on high, we would devolve to the Victorian era of sweatshops and chimney sweeps. There is a practical way to limit government intrusion and return us to the era of common law. Ironically, it requires a new law, but it would be worth it: No law or regulation, at the State or Federal level, can be longer than sentence each, but one cannot expect mankind to have the succinct wisdom of the Almighty). No longer would every legislator need a law degree to understand what they vote for and neither would the aver age citizen. We would live more freely, and our government would rule more justly. Such a law is unlikely to be passed, for it would end the current bacchanalian legislative orgy, Luke Bailey is a history junior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays.Internet InsanityTrolling is free speech, tooHave you ever been annoyed by something that someone posted on your Facebook wall? Have you ever seen anyone using profanity in a Twitter post? In some states, new laws might make these actions illegal under the guise of combating cyberbullying. They will also likely create a legal nightmare if they become law and are enforced. A bill making its way through the Alabama State Legislature, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, would criminalize transmitting, posting, displaying or disseminating, through electronic communications with the intent to harass, annoy or alarm. The Arizona legislature passed a bill Tuesday that could send people who annoy or offend to jail for up to six months, according to ABC News. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has yet to sign the bill into law. While the desire to curb cyberbullying is noble, going after speech on the Internet could have some negative, unintended consequences. Neither bill explains what it means to annoy or offend, a vagueness that makes almost anything that occurs on the Inter net subject to criminal charges. According to FIRE, if the Alabama bill becomes law, it would be a Class A misdemeanor to send an email to classmates lampooning Canadians for their usage of the word eh or their inexplicable love of ice hockey if that email has the effect of substantially embarrassing or humiliating a Canadian student in the eyes of his fellow university classmates. The Arizona law also suffers from the same level of troubling vagueness. In a letter to the governor of Arizona, the activist group Media Coalition argued that the bill is not limited to a one-to-one does not need to be repetitive or even unwanted. There is no requirement that the recipient or subject of the speech actually feel offended, annoyed or scared. Instead, the language of the bill implies that the state can go fensive. The letter continues by arguing that the bill does not make clear that the communication must be intended to offend or anAccording to the Media Coalitions interpretation of the bill, even if you post something online that was not meant to offend or annoy, the state could still potentially pursue criminal charges offensive. Not only do these pieces of legislation completely squelch free speech on the Internet, they serve as perfect examples of well-intended laws with unintentional consequences.

THE PANELS WILL REDUCE BETAS ELECTRICITY BILL BY 20 PERCENT. JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterThe roof of UFs Beta Theta Pi fraternity house isnt littered with red cups, beer bottles or pizza boxes. Instead, its covered with solar panels. The Gamma Xi chapter of Beta installed a $44,000 solar array last week. The 10-kilowatt system is the Brian Brasington, president of the chapters housing corporation. Sustainability studies junior Stuart Block, 20, was the brain behind the venture. Block approached the fraternitys housing executives with a solar panel proposal in November. I just thought if people could see solar panels on our house that nitely contribute to the sustainability movement, Block said. After getting the go-ahead from Brasington and talking with UFs covered Power Production Management Inc., a Gainesville energy-solutions business. The company helped the frater nity apply for and receive a $22,000 rebate from Progress Energy for the project, he said. UF loaned Beta $10,000 through an education fund. Fraternity brothers will work through energy-related UF community service. Power Product Management workers installed the 42 panels last week, and theyll be turned on within two weeks, Block said. Each panel has the energy potential of 245 watts. The system will reduce the fraternitys electric bill by about 20 percent, Block said. The fraternity should recoup the expenses in about six years time. Block said he hopes solar panel systems will spread throughout UF. First, hes got to face one more challenge: keeping Beta brothers away from the panels. Ill have to get people to refrain from throwing things onto the roof, he joked.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Important spring game informationDue to construction, only gates 7, 8, 12, 15, 16, 17 and 18 will be open for Saturdays spring game. Gates open at 11:30 a.m.UF-FSU facing off todayThe annual rivalry between the Gators and Noles hits the softball diamond today in Tallahassee. See story, page 15. Brett Oakes / Spinnaker BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer JACKSONVILLE Kevin OSullivan could do nothing but shake his head and shrug his shoulders as he looked around at an emptying Harmon Stadium. Hitters who had been strong all year hadnt hit, formerly solid pitchers had given up runs in six consecutive innings midweek game of the year. The opponent was North Florida a team Florida is surprisingly now 5-5 alltime against. This was a bad night, OSullivan said. You have nights where you just play terrible, and we played terrible. In front of the second-largest crowd (2,144) in UNF history, No. 1 Florida (245) fell to North Florida (18-13) 10-5. The surroundings were harsh and homely in comparison to recent trips to pristine Southeastern Conference parks during an eight-game road trip, but the play on The Gators needed eight pitchers to navigate through the game, struggling to throw strikes but also facing defensive woes when the ball was put in play. Austin Maddox committed two errors to add to an 0-for-4 night at the plate in of his own tacked on to a 1-for-4 showinning. We obviously needed some better performances from some of our guys, We came out and we just didnt do what we needed to do. Floridas bullpen became a black hole, dragging out the game by walking four and throwing 145 pitches in seven innings. Four pitchers (Bobby Poyner, Daniel Gibson, Corey Stump and Ryan Harris) failed to last an entire inning, with all except Harris being charged with an earned run. Poyner gave up four hits and three earned runs in the second without recording an out. We couldnt throw fastballs for strikes, OSullivan said. We werent even trying to go to the corners. We nibbled and unfortunately North Florida made us pay for it. The Ospreys got a brief taste of what the Gators pitching staff can be when sophomore righthander Karsten Whitson returned to the time since Feb. 26. In what he called a rehab start after recovering from a groin injury and arm fatigue, Whitson told OSullivan he would need inning of work. He used eight. My command was good, my slider was good, so it was very promising to see, Whitson said. Hopefully this weekend Ill start (against LSU). North Florida hitters had no answer for his slider, striking out twice after a leadoff grounder to shortstop. That was the bright moment of the night for us, OSullivan said. Unfortunately for the Gators, it was the lone bright spot. After going up 1-0 frustrating trend carried throughout the game, as UF recorded 10 hits but left nine runners on base. As far as moving on, it has to happen right now, OSullivan said. Its the worst game weve played all year, quite frankly, coupled with a well-played game by North Florida. Obviously the result indicated both of those things.Top-ranked Florida ends road trip with worst game all yearEND OF GREGULATIONOver the past few seasons, Floridas spring practice system has given rise to a recurring phenomenon. I call it the Guy to look out for but not really because hes probably never going to do anything anyway syndrome. Were still working on the name. It happens because spring is a time when all of our knowledge is based on quotes and hearsay, leading to occasional bits of misinformation. Every year, one or two guys reportedly shoot up the depth chart, impressing coaches and players and inspir ing irrational hope for the fall. In 2009, it was center Sam Robey. Robey did not play a single down during his freshman season before getting rave reviews the following spring. There was even talk that Maurkice Pouncey would move to guard to make room for Robey. NFL Pro Bowl center Maur kice Pouncey switch positions for Robey. Hes really come on, coach Urban Meyer said. He Robey played a few snaps in the fall and then slid back into obscurity. Hes actually still on the roster, believe it or not. Last year, it was wideout Quinton Dunbar, who missed his entire freshman season with an injury before rising from seventh on the depth chart into the starting lineup during the spring. Frankie Hammond said he was the most eye-opening player in spring practices. During the fall, Dunbar totaled four catches for 34 yards in seven Southeastern Conference games. With that in mind, Ive been on the lookout for the next Fostering fake phenoms one of UFs favorite spring pastimes Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca SEE GREG, PAGE 14Whitson Demps wins awardAfter posting the nations fastest all-conditions time (10.01) in the 100m during last weeks meet, senior Jeff Demps was announced Tuesday as the recipient of the SECs Co-Mens Runner of the Week award.

14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 2012 Robey/Dunbar. Remember, this player has to come from nothing, rise to prominence in spring, and then go back to nothing before making any tangible impact. So Ronald Powell, who has been named defensive player of the day in both scrimmages, and by all other measures would be a viable candidate, is ineligible. Being the No. 1 overall recruit put too big of a spotlight on him from the get-go. Were looking for true obscurity. Even Dunbar isnt up for reelection, because being the subject of all that spring hype put him in the public eye. With that in mind, here are some guys to be wary of Jaylen Watkins, junior cornerback: As the teams ninth-leading tackler last year, Watkins was a little too important to be a true candidate. Still, reports say hes improved his physicality and playmaking, with Will Muschamp saying hes done some nice things and Hammond calling him the hardest DB to go against. Hammonds praise was the death knell for Dunbar. Will Frankie strike again? Loucheiz Purifoy, sophomore cor nerback: Purifoy was pretty much a special-teams-only guy last year, but his improvement has impressed Watkins, and Muschamp said hes done some nice things, and Dan Quinn said he is a candidate to start opposite Marcus Roberson. Omarius Hines, senior running back (I guess?): Hines, Mike Gillislee, Omar Hunter and Jon Harrison have all praised champ said hes done some nice things. But hes barely ever played running back before and touched the ball eight times last season. So good luck with that. Antonio Morrison, four-star freshman linebacker: Quinn is impressed with his physicality, Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins have both raved about him, and Muschamp said hes done some good things. Even though that might actually be better than nice things, dont get too excited. Morrison will be trapped behind Bostic, Jenkins and Michael Taylor on the depth chart all season. Hes the early favorite to win these honors next spring. Latroy Pittman, freshman four-star wide receiver: We have a winner! Although Ive never seen him play, he has all the makings of Dunbar 2.0. But because hes a more physical, blocking wide receiver, nobody is making the comparison. scrimmage and was the player of the day Saturday, prompting Muschamp to say that hes done some nice things and is moving up the depth chart. But hes still never played a down, and wed be crazy to make the same mistake twice, regardless of how many nice things he does in the spring. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. GREG, from page 13 PREVIEWING THE ORANGE AND BLUE DEBUTWith the Gators annual spring game, the Orange and Blue Debut, scheduled for this Saturday, we at alligatorSports want to get you prepared. Each day this week, we will follow as the spring season comes to a close. Today, we look at the running backs, the pass rush and that dreaded s-word soft. SOMETHING TO LOOK FOR DURING SATURDAYS GAME: 3. The play of the running backsWhile getting a good grasp on what Floridas overall offense will look like in the fall might be tough to garner in one spring game, the scrimmage should give a glimpse at the Gators depth at running back. Florida approach with seniors Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps to more of a power-based running game in offensive coordinator Brent Peases could be some new wrinkles and deviations to where and how the running backs are used in their formations. Coach Will Muschamp said this week that senior Mike Gillislee is the likely starter heading into the season, so dont expect him to be carrying a large load in the game. Instead, watch for 5-foot-11, 210-pound sophomore Mack Brown to get extra touches as well as some of the Gators recent converts to tailback. Former tight end Omarius Hines and Chris Juice Johnson, who played linebacker last season, will both need to make positive impressions in the spring game if they want to keep their position switches permanent. Also, keep an eye on how Pease uses fullbacks Trey Burton and Hunter Joyer. As a freshman, Joyer might have been Floridas best option as a shortyardage back despite his limited carries. AREA THAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: 3. Pass rushWhen Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd and Dominique Easley sat onstage at media day before the 2010 season, proclaiming themselves the football version of the Miami Heats Big 3, fans and media alike ate it up. Three top-10 overall recruits would solidify Floridas defensive line for years to come, imposing fears on opposing quarterbacks. But that hasnt happened. Floyd has been forced to play outside at end because of depth issues, yet developed into an every-down force and Powell has been anything but the dominant pass-rushing end everyone expected from the nations top recruit. Southeastern Conference last season with 28 sacks, but they never consistently pressured the quarterback and opponents never had to gameplan for their pass rush. Muschamp and Dan Quinn have both spoke about the need for improvement in that area this season, and it starts with Powell, Easley and Floyd taking the next step in their development. Although the Gators have several pass-rushing prospects enrolling in August, incoming freshmen, even highly touted ones like top-10 overall recruit Jonathan Bullard, rarely make an impact Brown Powell STORYLINE TO WATCH: 3. Developing toughnessAfter the Gators ended the 2011 regular season with their sixth loss, which came at the hands of turnovers, Muschamp exploded in his postgame interview. He called his players soft, said they couldnt run the football and pointed out that they lacked the ability to control the line of scrimmage. It was an all-out assault designed to inspire change. Challenging the Gators to grow up mentally and physically was Muschamps best coaching move to date. Anyone could see that Florida was pushed around last season, bullied even. The offensive line has taken the brunt of the criticism, and for good reason. At times, the play up front resembled the turnstiles fans enter through at most stadiums. Alabama and LSU, and even South Carolina, controlled the line of scrimmage in dominant wins last year. So did Georgia, which held UF to negative rushing yards something that was unheard of under Urban Meyer. With Muschamp has continued to levy the soft label as motivation this spring. And, according to him, there has been progress. But will that progress translate be watching.

The offensive line has taken the brunt of the criticism, and for good reason. At times, the play up front resembled the turnstiles fans enter through at most stadiums. Alabama and LSU, and even South Carolina, controlled the line of scrimmage in dominant wins last year. So did Georgia, which held UF to negative rushing yards something that was Muschamp has continued to levy the soft label as motivation this spring. And, according to Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff

UF HAS NOT HAD MORE THAN THREE CARDS IN LAST 12 GAMES. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators defenders were tired. They were having to run more than usual to account for the free attacker that resulted from being down a defender. After Florida received six yellow cards in its 14-5 win against Jacksonville on Feb. 15, the defense decided to make sure it would not be shorthanded that many times again. I dont think it was anything we said, coach Amanda OLeary said. It was our defense sitting down with our offense and really just laying down the law. Since the Jacksonville game, No. 4 Florida (12-2, 2-0 American Lacrosse Conference) has been able to limit reckless plays that put the team a player down for two minutes at a time. The defenders wanted to make were making an effort to not place an unnecessary burden on them. At a practice, the defenders came up and talked to us about it, said. They were like, We cant get any yellow cards. Its hard to play man-down defense. Just try your best not to swing and hold your body on redefending. players have cleaned up their play since, and the Gators have not had more than three yellow cards in any of their last 12 games and did not have a single card in three of them. OLeary said that all of the players have done a better job of not swinging wildly and staying in front of attackers. Its making a conscious effort to play within the rules, OLeary said. We need to control ourselves and play better defense inside (the 8-meter arc) and in transition as well. remind the offense during games to not get overly aggressive. If we get a yellow card, theyll start screaming, Stop swinging, say it again. To make the players more aware result in a yellow card, the coaches have called more fouls in practice. The coaches also call out when a play could be a yellow card even if they dont blow the whistle. Junior defender Sam Farrell said the tightly called practices have been a good way to reinforce proper technique to the defenders and discourage wildly swinging their sticks. Thats the main thing just not swinging, Farrell said. When youre going to double or when youre playing on someone sometimes its just so tempting to swing, but in this level everyone is really good at protecting their stick so were just going to get a foul. OLeary said it comes down to the players not making dumb decisions, and the Gators are getting the message. I think thats been the key to our games lately, junior attacker AshALLIGATOR, 15Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Gators benefitting from smart play, limited yellow cardsSOFTBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer Although the Gators and Seminoles rivalry has proved conlines has proved to be just as competitive. UF is 15-13 overall against their in-state rival.

Were all excited to get a midweek game against FSU, especially after last weeks loss, Coyle said. We want to show we can get a midweek win. And of course, its FSU. So anytime we play FSU, I think theres going to be that rivalry there. This year, the annual matchup returns to the state capital where the Gators are an even 7-7. And with seven fresh faces on coach Tim Waltons squad this year, a trip to JoAnne Graf Field will be a eye-opening experience. With UF in town, the Seminoles drew a school-record 933 fans in their 1000-seat stadium on April 14, 2010. They are a rowdy crowd, Coyle said. And they are inus so far for preparing us for FSU, since a lot of our players havent seen it before.
