ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterCinco de Mayo party-goers will not be able to buy alcohol in the parking lot of 101 Cantina like they have in past years. Management at 101 Cantina requested a permit earlier this month to extend boundaries in order to sell alcohol underneath a tent in a neighboring parking lot during its annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on May 5. The city denied the permit request. When the city attorneys office looked over the request, it found that the permit was against city law. However, it had been granted to the business in the past for events, including for a St. Patricks Day celebration about a month ago. City spokesman Bob Woods said the reason the permit was approved in the past was because city staff misinterpreted a city rule that determined whether businesses were allowed to sell alcohol outside the business with city permission. The rule actually only allows this on weekends when there are UF home football games. There was a misunderstanding in the past with the ordinance, Woods said. Now that weve clarified that, weve got to exercise due diligence in complying with the ordinance. Management at 101 Cantina declined to comment. Under the city ordinance, a permit can be given to a business that wants to sell alcohol outdoors during the period of 80 /52 FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 the AVENUE 7 CLASSIFIEDS 11 CROSSWORD 13 SPORTS 15 David Carr / Alligator Staff jor, drink beer at 101 Cantina on Tuesday.

KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 500 people watched Parks and Recreation actor Nick Offerman deliver standup and songs, but hundreds more couldnt Crowds were turned away from his Wednesday night performance. Offerman plays Ron Swanson on the NBC show. The line snaked past the Rion Ballroom and through hallways Attendees were turned away starting 30 minutes before the event. Those who made it in witnessed Offerman bound around the room shirt before the show. He joked about the smoke in Gainesville, homosexuality and evangelical politics. With this homosexuality issue, I think were losing sight of what really matters there are vegetarians everywhere, he said. The free event was hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment, Accent Speakers Bureau and Inter-Residence Hall Association. Offerman was paid $35,000 for the 90-minute performance. Christie Harrod and Jessica Perkins waited in line for three hours, wearing paper bag mustaches. Harrod, a 22-year-old wildlife ecology and conservation senior, said Swanson has been her favorite Mechanical engineering junior Scott Jagolinzer said he enjoyed Offermans show. His whole philosophy on religion and politics was interesting, he said.Parks and Rec actor delivers standup, songs SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterGeorge Zimmerman was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder 45 days after Sanford police said he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, 28, turned himself into authorities. Special prosecutor Angela Corey later announced Zimmerman is being held without bond. Trayvons death made national headlines after Sanford police didnt immediately charge Zimmerman. Some believed Trayvon was targeted for his race, while others said the media was blowing the case out of proportion. The controversy began the night of Feb. 26, when police said Trayvon walked to his fathers girlfriends house from a store unarmed. Zimmerman called authorities and said he was following a suspicious person. The two fought, and Zimmerman shot Trayvon. Zimmerman told police he acted in self defense. UF law professor Michelle Jacobs said if hes convicted of second-degree murder, Zimmerman could face up to 30 years in jail. Im a little surprised at the charges, she said. Jacobs said she originally thought Zimmerman would be charged with manslaughter. Both charges acknowledge the defendant never intended to kill. She said the two charges differ in the degree of recklessness committed. For example, she said, if someone threw a heavy object off an overpass at 3 a.m. that killed a driver, the person who threw the object would likely be charged with manslaughter. However, if that same person during rush hour, he could be charged with murder. She said the difference is theres a greater chance someone will get hurt in the second scenario, which makes the incident more reckless. Jacobs said Zimmerman will be in court UF reacts to Zimmermans murder chargeSEE ZIMMERMAN, PAGE 4ZImmerman SEE 101 CANTINA, PAGE 4He turned himself in to police

within 24 hours for his initial hearing, where the charges will be explained. If the case makes it to a jury trial, Jacobs said the state prosecutor will have to prove Zimmerman didnt have the right to follow Trayvon and the actions that led to Trayvons death were very reckless. Some students said they are disappointed with the overall situation. Michael Keller, 20, said the medias attention to the case has become borderline ridiculous. Black rights groups turned this into a racist thing, the civil engineering sophomore said, when it wasnt like that to begin with. Others celebrated the fact that Zimmerman is in custody. Vincent Adejumo, a UF Ph.D. candidate and member of the Black Graduate Student Organization, said he hopes the prosecutor was able to gather enough evidence for a conviction. Its unfortunate that it took this long, the 25-yearold said. But Im glad hes been charged so the justice system can run its course.

City departments review requests to sell alcohol at outdoor eventsthe day before the football game and the day of the football game. Because there is no game on May 5, the permit should be denied, said Lee Libby, an assistant city attorney, in an email to Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa explaining the recommendation for the city to deny the bars permit. Libby could not be reached directly for comment. Various city departments, including public safety and planning, must review a permit to sell alcohol outdoors during special events before it is approved. Somewhere along the way, Woods said, staff within those departments misunderstood the rules. The bar will still be able to have an event, he said, it just cannot sell alcohol in the parking lot.

THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 JOBS WADE MILLWARDAlligator Contributing WriterJournalists might not have good hiring prospects, but they could have worse jobs four, to be exact. Newspaper reporter was ranked 196 out of 200 on CareerCast.coms 2012 jobs ranking. Last year, it was No. 188. The only worse jobs were oil rig worker, enlisted military soldier, dairy farmer and No. 200 lumberjack. The rankings were based on work environment, stress, income, physical demands and hiring outlook. UF journalism professor Norman Lewis said criticism against newspaper reporters isnt new. It can be apother helping professions, such as teaching and social work. Lewis, who worked in newspapers for more than 25 years, changed his major to journalism from computer science during college, even though the latter would have paid more. He said reporters help people govern themselves, sift through falsehoods and lead better lives. But Lawrence Chan, 19, a journalism and English freshman, said he could understand the ranking and doesnt plan to go into newspapers. He hates the deadlines and hectic hours but thinks the degree is versatile. Journalism freshman Marisa Ross, 19, said shes heard criticism in the past but thinks reporters dont get enough respect. she said.

Carl M. Babb, 50, was arrested after police said he snatched a womans purse from the Lunchbox restaurant downtown at about 8:50 p.m. Felipe Echeverri, 33, said he saw Babb take the purse and ran after him. He looked like a guy you see in prison movies, Echeverri said. I would have never messed with him if I had actually thought about it. A few seconds into the chase, Babb turned around and punched Echeverri between the eyes, leaving a visible mark. Echeverri said he felt groggy but continued to chase Babb when Babb threw a handful of lit 2-foot-long sticks of incense backward at him. About 100 feet farther, Babb threw the womans purse. Echeverri tackled Babb and pinned him to the ground. He said he tried to reach for his cellphone when a crowd that had gathered began to yell, Hes reaching for his pocket! Sensing that the crowd thought he had bad intentions, Echeverri tried to explain that Babb stole a womans purse, punched him in the face and needed to be held until police arrived. While most of the crowd bought the story, Echeverri said about three others got in between him and Babb, allowing Babb to run away. Police caught up with him at the corner of Northeast First Street and Northeast Fourth Avenue. Babb was arrested for robbery by sudden snatching and battery. Although his head hurt, Echeverri said he considered himself lucky. He could have just as easily done something much worse, he said.

ALEXANDRA ANNANContributing Avenue WriterA local Gainesville band could be playing at one of the largest annual music festivals in Tennessee this summer. Far Away Planes, a band that describes itself as indie rock with a dancy feel, is cur rently in a contest for the chance to play the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn., June 7 to June 10. Bonnaroo takes place on 700 acres in Manchester, Tenn., and includes 150 performances on more than 10 stages. The Bonnaroo: Road to Roo contest voting began on April 2 and will end April 16. The contest includes more than 200 bands and Gainesvilles Far Away Planes is at the number 12 spot as of Thursday. Basically, the contest is based on votes, said Luke Sipka, keyboard player for Far Away Planes and junior telecommunication student at UF. They take the top 10 with the most votes, and then those 10 are submitted to the Bonnaroo music panel. Then they pick the two bands that will actually get to play at the festival. Even with four days still left in the contest, the band is already seeing positive results. The biggest goal is always to get as many people as possible to hear your music, Sipka said. Its exciting to go on the website and check the rankings every day. Seeing that weve been in the top 10 nationwide at one point is kind of crazy. For Sipka, being a part of Far Away Planes has been a positive experience unlike some past ones. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2012SEE PLANESES, paPA GE 9Local band Far Away Planes needs votes for Bonnaroo ERICA A. HERNANDEZAvenue WriterWould you want to see beer bottles, empty nacho containers, soda cups, plastic merchandise bags, forgotten posters, broken-off wristbands, fallen ticket stubs on your property? Because these are just a few of the items left in heaps on the ground of the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., after a soldout performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers on April 2. This is a familiar scene at the end of any given night at major venues such as the Bank Atlantic and Stephen C. OConnell centers. Trash piles up throughout the hours, and at the end of the night trash is all that remains. But what is done with that trash is what counts. In the past year, the OConnell Center has taken steps toward running a more eco-friendly venue through paper and plastic recycling incentives. The OConnell Center, which seats 12,000 people in the main arena, serves UF and the Gainesville community regularly. Going green is a large task to which the OConnell Center staff has responded to whether it is through sporting events such as the ever-popular Gator basketball games, concerts, such as Drakes recent performance there, or arguably the most important event hosted there: commencement ceremonies. We have a team right now that is called the Green Team, said Diana Caglianone, OConnell Center senior event coordinator. They go to meetings and they congregate with other members of campus and determine what would be a good way to make green policies. In an effort to encourage event attendees to improve their recycling efforts, 44 recycling bins have been put inside the 296,000-square-foot building, Caglianone said. A main initiative started by the OConnell Center Green by staff, is to reduce paper waste. promote green efforts, visit www.alligator.org/the_avenue/.Sustainability efforts expanded at OConnell Center We at least get to say we tried and put ourselves out there instead of sitting at home and just wishing someone would come knocking on our door.Luke Sipkakeyboard player for Far Away Planes

After a strong weekend at the Florida Relays, sophomore Darshay Davis is using an off week to prepare in search of her See story at alligatorSports.org. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After just one season playing for the Gators, Walter Pitchford announced Wednesday that he is transferring from Floridas basketball team. The 6-foot-10, 221-pound forward saw just 22 minutes of playing time off the bench during his freshman season at UF, scoring six points and grabbing four rebounds in 13 games. Coach Billy Donovan cited Pitchfords wish to be closer to his family in Michigan as his main reason for leaving the program, according to a university release. him and his family, just with some of his extenuating circumstances. Right now, he just needs to be near his family, Donovan said. They need him home and they want him home. Pitchford came to UF as a threestar center out of East Lansing (Mich.) Summit Christian Academy. His departure leaves Florida one scholar ship below the NCAA limit, creating an opportunity for another recruit to commit to the Gators before the late signing period is over on May 16. Even though he didnt play a lot this year, his attitude every day was phenomenal; always good energy, always good enthusiasm, Donovan said. I dont remember him ever having a bad day attitude-wise. He was always about the team. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer Its a mantra that UF coach Kevin OSullivan has repeated all season. The bottom line is we go as they go. Through weeks of good wins and a recent stretch of bad losses, OSullivan made it clear the Gators will only reach their potential if stars like Mike Zunino, Preston Tucker and Brian Johnson do the same. It was the reason why Johnson started on a Tuesday night in Tallahassee fore. If we hadnt been in the situation we were in, having ent, but I thought we needed a win, OSullivan said after the game. Tucker had a hit, while Nolan Fontana and Johnson each notched solo homers. Johnsons start lasted just three innings, accounting for all three FSU runs. But climbing out of a rut took more than the Gators rolling out their list of 2012 Major League Baseball Draft prospects. Johnsons rough start could have spiraled into a Seminoles run-scoring derby had it not been for Ryan Harris, a previously sparingly used right-handed freshman who retired nine batters in a row and picked up the win. Three of Harris previous seven appearances had come against Florida Atlantic, Florida A&M and North Florida. Zuninos home run wouldnt have meant as much had freshman second baseman Casey Turgeon not singled before him. One inning later, Turgeon singled in Fontana for the go-ahead run. Hes a pest, man, Zunino said of Turgeon. I wouldnt want to pitch against him. He just barrels Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Kevin OSullivan talks to the media following Tuesday nights win against Florida State. OSullivan said he started junior Brian Johnson because the Gators needed a win against the Seminoles after a recent slide. Gators newcomers contributing, helping established stars JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer Emily Dohony and Kitty Cullen have good reason to be scared. But they arent. Both players have suffered head injuries in the past three weeks, but neither has resout taking additional safety measures. Cullen, a junior attacker, sustained a concussion in the Gators 10-8 win at Ohio State half and was struck from behind in the head or neck area in the second half, but the team could not determine which play caused the concussion. She returned to the lineup against Johns Hopkins on Saturday after missing two games. Cullen said additional action does not need to be taken to improve safety because doing so could make womens lacrosse as physical as mens lacrosse. I think its a pretty safe game, Cullen said. It always could be safer if we wore helmets, but then people might get more aggressive. Dohony, a junior defender, had to leave Saturdays game against Johns Hopkins after she was hit by an attackers stick, opening up a cut on her forehead that bled profusely. Womens lacrosse players currently have the option to wear a soft rugby-style helmet, but no Gator has opted for the extra protection. Both Dohony and Cullen cited comfort, and Cullen also said she thinks it could restrict her peripheral vision.

But on Tuesday night, he found a way to factor into UFs win. and third before Turgeons RBI single in the sixth. It Its awesome, Turgeon said.

ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterCinco de Mayo party-goers will not be able to buy alcohol in the parking lot of 101 Cantina like they have in past years. Management at 101 Cantina requested a permit earlier this month to extend boundaries in order to sell alcohol underneath a tent in a neighboring parking lot during its annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on May 5. The city denied the permit request. When the city attorneys office looked over the request, it found that the permit was against city law. However, it had been granted to the business in the past for events, including for a St. Patricks Day celebration about a month ago. City spokesman Bob Woods said the reason the permit was approved in the past was because city staff misinterpreted a city rule that determined whether businesses were allowed to sell alcohol outside the business with city permission. The rule actually only allows this on weekends when there are UF home football games. There was a misunderstanding in the past with the ordinance, Woods said. Now that weve clarified that, weve got to exercise due diligence in complying with the ordinance. Management at 101 Cantina declined to comment.

Offerman plays Ron Swanson on the NBC show. The line snaked past the Rion Ballroom and through hallways Attendees were turned away starting 30 minutes before the event.

With this homosexuality issue, I think were losing sight of what really matters there are vegetarians everywhere, he said. The free event was hosted by Reitz Union Board Entertainment, Accent Speakers Bureau and Inter-Residence Hall Association. Offerman was paid $35,000 for the 90-minute performance.

His whole philosophy on religion and politics was interesting, he said.Parks and Rec actor delivers standup, songs SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterGeorge Zimmerman was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder 45 days after Sanford police said he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman, 28, turned himself into authorities. Special prosecutor Angela Corey later announced Zimmerman is being held without bond. Trayvons death made national headlines after Sanford police didnt immediately charge Zimmerman. Some believed Trayvon was targeted for his race, while others said the media was blowing the case out of proportion. The controversy began the night of Feb. 26, when police said Trayvon walked to his fathers girlfriends house from a store unarmed. Zimmerman called authorities and said he was following a suspicious person. The two fought, and Zimmerman shot Trayvon. Zimmerman told police he acted in self defense. UF law professor Michelle Jacobs said if hes convicted of second-degree murder, Zimmerman could face up to 30 years in jail. Im a little surprised at the charges, she said. Jacobs said she originally thought Zimmerman would be charged with manslaughter. Both charges acknowledge the defendant never intended to kill. She said the two charges differ in the degree of recklessness committed. For example, she said, if someone threw a heavy object off an overpass at 3 a.m. that killed a driver, the person who threw the object would likely be charged with manslaughter. However, if that same person during rush hour, he could be charged with murder. She said the difference is theres a greater chance someone will get hurt in the second scenario, which makes the incident more reckless. Jacobs said Zimmerman will be in court UF reacts to Zimmermans murder chargeSEE ZIMMERMAN, PAGE 4ZImmerman SEE 101 CANTINA, PAGE 4He turned himself in to police

within 24 hours for his initial hearing, where the charges will be explained. If the case makes it to a jury trial, Jacobs said the state prosecutor will have to prove Zimmerman didnt have the right to follow Trayvon and the actions that led to Trayvons death were very reckless. Some students said they are disappointed with the overall situation. Michael Keller, 20, said the medias attention to the case has become borderline ridiculous. Black rights groups turned this into a racist thing, the civil engineering sophomore said, when it wasnt like that to begin with. Others celebrated the fact that Zimmerman is in custody. Vincent Adejumo, a UF Ph.D. candidate and member of the Black Graduate Student Organization, said he hopes the prosecutor was able to gather enough evidence for a conviction. Its unfortunate that it took this long, the 25-yearold said. But Im glad hes been charged so the justice system can run its course.

City departments review requests to sell alcohol at outdoor eventsthe day before the football game and the day of the football game. Because there is no game on May 5, the permit should be denied, said Lee Libby, an assistant city attorney, in an email to Commissioner Jeanna Mastrodicasa explaining the recommendation for the city to deny the bars permit. Libby could not be reached directly for comment. Various city departments, including public safety and planning, must review a permit to sell alcohol outdoors during special events before it is approved. Somewhere along the way, Woods said, staff within those departments misunderstood the rules. The bar will still be able to have an event, he said, it just cannot sell alcohol in the parking lot.

THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 JOBS WADE MILLWARDAlligator Contributing WriterJournalists might not have good hiring prospects, but they could have worse jobs four, to be exact. Newspaper reporter was ranked 196 out of 200 on CareerCast.coms 2012 jobs ranking. Last year, it was No. 188. The only worse jobs were oil rig worker, enlisted military soldier, dairy farmer and No. 200 lumberjack. The rankings were based on work environment, stress, income, physical demands and hiring outlook. UF journalism professor Norman Lewis said criticism against newspaper reporters isnt new. It can be apother helping professions, such as teaching and social work. Lewis, who worked in newspapers for more than 25 years, changed his major to journalism from computer science during college, even though the latter would have paid more. He said reporters help people govern themselves, sift through falsehoods and lead better lives. But Lawrence Chan, 19, a journalism and English freshman, said he could understand the ranking and doesnt plan to go into newspapers. He hates the deadlines and hectic hours but thinks the degree is versatile. Journalism freshman Marisa Ross, 19, said shes heard criticism in the past but thinks reporters dont get enough respect. she said.

Carl M. Babb, 50, was arrested after police said he snatched a womans purse from the Lunchbox restaurant downtown at about 8:50 p.m. Felipe Echeverri, 33, said he saw Babb take the purse and ran after him. He looked like a guy you see in prison movies, Echeverri said. I would have never messed with him if I had actually thought about it. A few seconds into the chase, Babb turned around and punched Echeverri between the eyes, leaving a visible mark. Echeverri said he felt groggy but continued to chase Babb when Babb threw a handful of lit 2-foot-long sticks of incense backward at him. About 100 feet farther, Babb threw the womans purse. Echeverri tackled Babb and pinned him to the ground. He said he tried to reach for his cellphone when a crowd that had gathered began to yell, Hes reaching for his pocket! Sensing that the crowd thought he had bad intentions, Echeverri tried to explain that Babb stole a womans purse, punched him in the face and needed to be held until police ar rived. While most of the crowd bought the story, Echeverri said about three others got in between him and Babb, allowing Babb to run away. Police caught up with him at the corner of Northeast First Street and Northeast Fourth Avenue. Babb was arrested for robbery by sudden snatching and battery. Although his head hurt, Echeverri said he considered himself lucky. He could have just as easily done something much worse, he said.

ALEXANDRA ANNANContributing Avenue WriterA local Gainesville band could be playing at one of the largest annual music festivals in Tennessee this summer. Far Away Planes, a band that describes itself as indie rock with a dancy feel, is cur rently in a contest for the chance to play the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn., June 7 to June 10. Bonnaroo takes place on 700 acres in Manchester, Tenn., and includes 150 performances on more than 10 stages. The Bonnaroo: Road to Roo contest voting began on April 2 and will end April 16. The contest includes more than 200 bands and Gainesvilles Far Away Planes is at the number 12 spot as of Thursday. Basically, the contest is based on votes, said Luke Sipka, keyboard player for Far Away Planes and junior telecommunication student at UF. They take the top 10 with the most votes, and then those 10 are submitted to the Bonnaroo music panel. Then they pick the two bands that will actually get to play at the festival. Even with four days still left in the contest, the band is already seeing positive results. The biggest goal is always to get as many people as possible to hear your music, Sipka said. Its exciting to go on the website and check the rankings every day. Seeing that weve been in the top 10 nationwide at one point is kind of crazy. For Sipka, being a part of Far Away Planes has been a positive experience unlike some past ones. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2012SEE PLANES, PA GE 9Local band Far Away Planes needs votes for Bonnaroo ERICA A. HERNANDEZAvenue WriterWould you want to see beer bottles, empty nacho containers, soda cups, plastic merchandise bags, forgotten posters, broken-off wristbands, fallen ticket stubs on your property? Because these are just a few of the items left in heaps on the ground of the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., after a soldout performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers on April 2. This is a familiar scene at the end of any given night at major venues such as the Bank Atlantic and Stephen C. OConnell centers. Trash piles up throughout the hours, and at the end of the night trash is all that remains. But what is done with that trash is what counts. In the past year, the OConnell Center has taken steps toward running a more eco-friendly venue through paper and plastic recycling incentives. The OConnell Center, which seats 12,000 people in the main arena, serves UF and the Gainesville community regularly. Going green is a large task to which the OConnell Center staff has responded to whether it is through sporting events such as the ever-popular Gator basketball games, concerts, such as Drakes recent performance there, or arguably the most important event hosted there: commencement ceremonies. We have a team right now that is called the Green Team, said Diana Caglianone, OConnell Center senior event coordinator. They go to meetings and they congregate with other members of campus and determine what would be a good way to make green policies. In an effort to encourage event attendees to improve their recycling efforts, 44 recycling bins have been put inside the 296,000-square-foot building, Caglianone said. A main initiative started by the OConnell Center Green by staff, is to reduce paper waste. promote green efforts, visit www.alligator.org/the_avenue/.Sustainability efforts expanded at OConnell Center We at least get to say we tried and put ourselves out there instead of sitting at home and just wishing someone would come knocking on our door.Luke Sipkakeyboard player for Far Away Planes

After a strong weekend at the Florida Relays, sophomore Darshay Davis is using an off week to prepare in search of her See story at alligatorSports.org. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer After just one season playing for the Gators, Walter Pitchford announced Wednesday that he is transferring from Floridas basketball team. The 6-foot-10, 221-pound forward saw just 22 minutes of playing time off the bench during his freshman season at UF, scoring six points and grabbing four rebounds in 13 games. Coach Billy Donovan cited Pitchfords wish to be closer to his family in Michigan as his main reason for leaving the program, according to a university release. him and his family, just with some of his extenuating circumstances. Right now, he just needs to be near his family, Donovan said. They need him home and they want him home. Pitchford came to UF as a threestar center out of East Lansing (Mich.) Summit Christian Academy. His departure leaves Florida one scholar ship below the NCAA limit, creating an opportunity for another recruit to commit to the Gators before the late signing period is over on May 16. Even though he didnt play a lot this year, his attitude every day was phenomenal; always good energy, always good enthusiasm, Donovan said. I dont remember him ever having a bad day attitude-wise. He was always about the team. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. BRYAN HOLT Alligator Writer Its a mantra that UF coach Kevin OSullivan has repeated all season. The bottom line is we go as they go. Through weeks of good wins and a recent stretch of bad losses, OSullivan made it clear the Gators will only reach their potential if stars like Mike Zunino, Preston Tucker and Brian Johnson do the same. It was the reason why Johnson started on a Tuesday night in Tallahassee fore. If we hadnt been in the situation we were in, having ent, but I thought we needed a win, OSullivan said after the game. Tucker had a hit, while Nolan Fontana and Johnson each notched solo homers. Johnsons start lasted just three innings, accounting for all three FSU runs. But climbing out of a rut took more than the Gators rolling out their list of 2012 Major League Baseball Draft prospects. Johnsons rough start could have spiraled into a Seminoles run-scoring derby had it not been for Ryan Harris, a previously sparingly used right-handed freshman who retired nine batters in a row and picked up the win. Three of Harris previous seven appearances had come against Florida Atlantic, Florida A&M and North Florida. Zuninos home run wouldnt have meant as much had freshman second baseman Casey Turgeon not singled before him. One inning later, Turgeon singled in Fontana for the go-ahead run. Hes a pest, man, Zunino said of Turgeon. I wouldnt want to pitch against him. He just barrels Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Kevin OSullivan talks to the media following Tuesday nights win against Florida State. OSullivan said he started junior Brian Johnson because the Gators needed a win against the Seminoles after a recent slide. Gators newcomers contributing, helping established stars JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer Emily Dohony and Kitty Cullen have good reason to be scared. But they arent. Both players have suffered head injuries in the past three weeks, but neither has resout taking additional safety measures. Cullen, a junior attacker, sustained a concussion in the Gators 10-8 win at Ohio State half and was struck from behind in the head or neck area in the second half, but the team could not determine which play caused the concussion. She returned to the lineup against Johns Hopkins on Saturday after missing two games. Cullen said additional action does not need to be taken to improve safety because doing so could make womens lacrosse as physical as mens lacrosse. I think its a pretty safe game, Cullen said. It always could be safer if we wore helmets, but then people might get more aggressive. Dohony, a junior defender, had to leave Saturdays game against Johns Hopkins after she was hit by an attackers stick, opening up a cut on her forehead that bled profusely. Womens lacrosse players currently have the option to wear a soft rugby-style helmet, but no Gator has opted for the extra protection. Both Dohony and Cullen cited comfort, and Cullen also said she thinks it could restrict her peripheral vision.

But on Tuesday night, he found a way to factor into UFs win. and third before Turgeons RBI single in the sixth. It Its awesome, Turgeon said.

We tell our players that what ever protective gear that is al lowed within the rules we will provide for them, OLeary said.
