ADMINISTRATION ERIN JESTER and JOEY FLECHASAlligator Staff WritersTALLAHASSEE Administrators from UF and Florida State University met in the state Capitol on Thursday to lobby Gov. Rick Scott to sign a bill that would allow both universities to charge marketrate tuition. The bill, which was passed by the Florida Legislature last month, would allow universities that meet certain criteria to raise tuition by more than the current cap of 15 percent per year. UF and FSU are the only universities that make the cut right now. Rep. Bill Proctor, who supports the bill, argued that pertmitting UF and FSU to raise tuition to market rate would allow them to achieve national pre-eminence. Increasing the quality of education would better prepare students for entering the workforce, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math The importance of major research universities to the state and the nations economy can not be overstated, Proctor said in support of the bill. During his presentation, FSU President Eric Barron said the Top 100 research universities attract $40 billion in federal and corporate research, while the next 550 universities garner only $10 billion. He noted that the market will protect against unbridled tuition increases, and that the goal of market-rate tuition isnt to limit ac-UF, FSU push for Gov. Scott to sign tuition bill JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterHundreds of graduate students moved as one Thursday to protest proposed cuts to an engineering department. They gathered on the Reitz Union Colonfor a discussion and lined the auditorium walls at the McKnight Brain Institute for a Faculty Senate meeting. But no matter where they were, their message stayed the same: Save CISE. The Florida Legislature recently passed a plan that would reduce the budget for UFs College of Engineering by 5.86 percent, according to a proposal by Dean Cammy Abernathy. Combined with other expenses, this totals about $4 million that must be cut or repurposed. Abernathys plan includes moving all computer engineering degree programs from the Computer and Information Science and Engineering department to the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. CISE teaching assistants would be eliminated, as would research and graduate staff, according to the proposal. Half of the faculty could move to another department. I dont know that our college has been through something quite like this in our 100year history, Abernathy said at a meeting Thursday. Distributing cuts equally across all engi-Graduate engineering students protest proposed budget cuts THE CASE REMAINS OPEN, PENDING AUTOPSY RESULTS. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterJude Rizzo cant sleep. He hasnt for the past 11 days, he said. He doesnt want to eat. He keeps thinking about that April night: The night he killed his roommate. The images come back when he closes his eyes: running down the kicking the pistol away, calling police, getting handcuffed, being questioned, being asked to rehash the night. He just wants to forget, he said. But he cant. His younger brother, Joel, cant either. Its crazy, Jude said. This is a position you never want to be in in your life. Gainesville Police said Jude, 21, a nursing student at Santa Fe College, shot Michael Crace, 20, three times near the chest in self-defense on April 2. They were in their apartment at Mill Run Condominiums, located off Southwest 20th Avenue. Jude Rizzo has not been charged, though the case remains open as detectives await Craces autopsy results, said GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri. That could take months. Tabitha Hardy, one of Craces former co-workers at Moes Southwest Grill, said Crace and the Rizzo brothers did not get along. Crace They werent paying rent, she said. But Jude insists this isnt true. They were friends. He met Crace four months ago their girlfriends were roommates. Jude said he and Crace liked each other from the beginning, and Jude moved in with him in February. They worked out together at Powerhouse Gym on West University Avenue. He, Crace and their girlfriends liked to watch movies together. The week before Crace died, though, Jude said he changed.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE VIRUS CAN BE PICKED UP FROM ANY TYPE OF WEBSITE. KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Contributing WriterMorgan Russell didnt know her Apple computer could get a virus, but it turns out her Mac isnt as invincible as she thought. About 600 Mac computers on the UF campus were suspected to be infected with a Trojan virus called Flashback as of Thursday, said Jim Hranicky, an information security monitoring specialist for UFs Information Security team. The team is monitoring computers on the UF networks in search of the virus. This is one of the bigger infections that Ive had to deal with, Hranicky said. Russell, a 19-year-old marketing sophomore, received an email from UF DHNet Internet Services on Wednesday saying there had been an outbreak of a new virus among Mac computers on campus. An update, sent Thursday evening, recommended using the free ClamXav software to prevent infection. For computers already affected, it suggested downloading a Java security update from Apples website. It also recommended that Mac users run their computers built-in Software Update feature. The virus, which can be acquired while visiting almost any type of website, allows hackers to access personal information such as passwords and bank account numbers, said Ross Newman, CEO of iHospital, a computer repair business. It does have the potential to do great damage, he said.Virus affects about 600 students Macs on campusHEALTH ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterUF students who have not had chickenpox or its vaccine should beware of the itchy virus in the upcoming weeks. It has been steadily infecting students in Alachua County schools. The Alachua County Health Department has reported 70 cases of chickenpox since January, 65 of which have been in the northwest part of the county. We are concerned that, given the foothold that this disease has been able to gain in this part of the county, there is potential for this outbreak to increase in all parts, said Paul Myers, administrator of the Alachua County Health Department. There is an onslaught of symptoms before bumps appear, including a fever, UF Student Health Center Director Dr. Phillip Barkley said. It is common to not suspect the virus until the itchy blisters surface. Barkley said the fact that UF does not require its students to receive the Varicella vaccination before they start classes has caused concern on campus. It is something that we may want to look into changing, Barkley said. There have been no cases of chickenpox reported on UFs campus this year, he said. Students who have not had the virus or been vaccinated for it should get vaccinated as soon as possible. The Student Health Care Center offers the vaccine to students who call ahead or walk in. The affected schools include Alachua Elementary School, W.W. Irby Elementary School, High Springs Community School, Mebane Middle School, Santa Fe High School, Bhaktivedanta Academy and the Alachua Learning Center. The county health department has demanded that unvaccinated students at those schools stay home until the week of April 25, Myers said.

cess to top universities to wealthy students. Scott asked what UF and FSU plan to do with the extra tuition money. The key to quality, from where I sit, is faculty, said UF President Bernie Machen. More faculty members will yield more research, which means UF will be able to snag more research dollars, he said. The governor thanked Machen, Barron and the other university to present their arguments. Its always interesting to get everybodys perspective when you go through a decision like this because you want to make sure that families in this state can afford a great education, Scott said. He has about a week left to sign the bill, and he said he expects more people to weigh in on the subject before he makes his decision. I think hes seriously trying to do what he thinks is the right thing, Machen said. I think it was time well spent. Contact Erin Jester at ejester@ alligator.org.

Jose Soto, co-president of UFs Graduate Assistants United, presented the students demands. They want Abernathy to delay the anApril 19 to June 15 to allow more time for deliberation. They also want to see improved transparency. Soto suggested that Abernathy curring or not, to CISE. The students want Abernathy to maintain staff members slated for termination and require a majority vote among those affected to approve the proposal. The senators also passed a resolution that requires administration and faculty to share governance of removing or transferring a graduate program from any department.

CAITLIN HARTLEYAlligator Contributing WriterElizabeth Graham will take the trip of her dreams this summer. Its not a cruise to the Bahamas or a week in Paris. Its a trip to the 2012 ESPY awards. Graham was the winner of ESPNUs Ultimate College Sports Fan contest. Contestants submitted oneminute videos saying why they believed they were the biggest college sports fans. The grand prize is an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the ESPYs in Los Angeles. The annual award show, hosted by ESPN, honors the best athletes and most memorable moments from the world of sports. Graham, 23, is an electrical engineering graduate student and has been at UF for six years. She said she is ecstatic her video won, and she cannot wait to get to California. Shes taking her boyfriend, Alex Everett, a 21-year-old chemical engineering senior. When I heard about the contest, I didnt even know about the prize, Graham said. Most of my friends will tell you that I am one of the most passionate fans, so thats why I decided to enter because I knew The video submissions were judged based on ratings given by viewers, creativity, relevance to the contest theme and entertainment value. After the judging period was voting round. Whoever got the most votes on Facebook by April 3 won the grand prize. Graham said she spread the word through Facebook and Twitter while enlisting the help of friends and family. My mom basically sent out an email to her entire address book, Graham said. One of my moms co-workers said she thought the video actually undersold how big of a Gator fan I am, but I only had one minute. Telecommunication sophomore Daniel Gibble, 20, said he was going to enter the contest too, but he missed the deadline. Its probably a good thing I didnt enter, Gibble said. Elizabeth seems like a much bigger sports fan than I am. Graham, who has attended at least one sporting event for every sports team at UF, said her love of Gator sports began before she ever set foot on campus. Graham said she remembers ball game and knew she was in for something special. I remember following them all the way through the tournament, and then they won! After that, I knew I was going to go to every single basketball game. Until she leaves for the July 11 award show, Graham said shell continue doing what she does best: cheering on her teams. Yes, theres a crappy feeling you get when you lose, Graham said, but fortunately for me, I go to a school like Florida where that doesnt happen as much. I get to experience the amazing feeling of us winning a lot more than the disappointment of us losing. FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 David Carr / Alligator Staff Stadium on Wednesday.

In his most recent State of the Union address, President Obama said, Because of federal investments, renewable energy use has nearly doubled, and thousands of 14.3 percent of domestic energy production, up from 10.4 percent in 2009. energy production, but the government ought to butt out of the energy sector. Why is the government involving itself in the energy conWashington believes it must transform the U.S. into a clean-energy economy, essentially because countries like Germany and China are trying to do the same. Because the U.S. is the best country in the world, it must show the rest of the world that Earths top dog is, in fact, still on top. Government intervention in the energy sector is nonsensical, and the statement by President Obama proves it. The president claims that because of federal investment in renewable energy production, Americans have more jobs. To talk without thinking. someone throws a rock and it breaks the window of a karate dojo. Now the sensei must spend money to hire a window hire a new instructor, buying a new car or investing. The broken window diverts capital from where it would have naturally gone and spends capital elsewhere. The same is true when it comes to government. Government spending to promote clean energy and green jobs does so at the expense of where the market would have this way, the government cannot ever truly create any jobs or create any wealth. So what should the governAmericans have heard both par ties clamor for an all-of-theapproach, as Roy Cordato of the John Locke Foundation says. Government should stop spending our money to develop uneconomical energy sources. According to a report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, by 2016, the cost per kilowatt-hour will alternative energy will cost 8.6 cents for hydro, 9.7 cents for wind, 10.2 cents for geothermal, 11.3 cents for biomass, 11.4 cents for nuclear, 21.1 cents for solar (photovoltaic cells) and 24.3 cents for offshore wind. Clearly, almost all forms of alternative energy just cannot compete in the marketplace, so the government foolishly The energy issue should not be demagogued into a cleanenergy versus dirty-energy economy. Instead, the energy issue should be framed by which energy sources make the most economic sense. Its ironic that politicians are elected through a democratic model in which the will of the majority wins, yet they condemn the same model in the energy business. Government cannot create green jobs anymore than a broken window cannot and ought not to wastefully spend money to develop quixotic energy. The best ideas in the energy sector will develop and eventually rise without governments help, and it must be the people, with the collection of their individual choices, who make that decision.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorArticle about arrest of transgender person perpetuates stereotypesShame on Tyler Jett and the Alligator for publishing Resident charged with shaking his wee-wee on April 6. I believe this article exhibits extreme bias. This type of journalism perpetuates stereotypes and the fear of people who are transgender. Transgender individuals regularly face discrimination and violence. Why would the Alligator want to add to and promote this type of bigotry and potential for violence? I perceived the article as offensive, biased, rude, demeaning and blatantly ignorant on many levels. I personally know Zot as an upstanding, honest, hardworking, trustworthy community member who spends a great deal of her time working for social justice. She reguIts bad enough that the article presents the allegations as factual, but its use of Zots gender status to sensationalize the story adds to my reaction of shock and disgust. This type of ignorance has no place in a newspaper that is associated with a university campus where education is supposedly revered. In my opinion, this was extremely irresponsible journalism that created the potential for severely harmful consequences. I believe that the Alligator and Tyler Jett have an ethical obligation to provide Zot Szurgot with a written apology that is published in the Alligator in the name of responsible journalism. I also request that a separate article be published, along the lines of An Education in Transgender Cultural Competency, in which detailed factual information is provided on how to be an ally to transgender people. I am part of an organization called Spectrum Trans Awareness. We have been doing free Cultural Competency Trainings on Transgender Awareness in the Gainesville community since 2010. We started this organization because this type of prejudice is far too common in our community. We would like to offer our services to the staff of the Alligator to assist them to become educated about these issues and to provide responsible journalism regarding gender issues to the community. We would also be happy to assist in writing the educational piece regarding transgender cultural competency. Please feel free to contact us at spectrumgainesville@ yahoo.com for more information. Laurie Reisman UF alumna Gainesville resident§ §§The Alligator should Dart itselfThe next time the Alligator jumps to conclusions based on police reports, think again. Zot Szurgot is a very good, longtime friend of mine. Hes also one of the most decent, caring people I know. Perhaps it was not anything more than stepping out of a house on a warm Gainesville day into a secluded yard and taking a whiz. The neighbors with a grudge called in a complaint. They were also, according to the Suns article, 100 feet away. The dart goes to you. Joe Courter Gainesville resident President Obama is right to claim that the Republican Party has been radical and extremist in its approach ingly blunt rhetoric. The president clearly realizes his reelection hangs partially on his ability to contrast his record and ideas to those of the GOP. Theoretically, that shouldnt be hard to do. The presidents legacy throughout most of this great recession has been attempting to maneuver around unprecedented obstruction by the Republican Party positioning to regain power. The GOP has been clear from the beginning, in the midst of a national crisis, that it would do whatever it took to ensure Obama fails. Sadly, Republicans have reacted to the recession and Obamas re-election by moving much further to the right of the political spectrum. interest rates and the bond market, the only the top priority, but also a magical key to prosperity. This couldnt be further from the truth. In fact, severe cuts in government spending during a recession will suck critically needed demand from a fragile economy, as was seen in Japan during its Lost Decade and in the U.S. in 1937. Put simply, governments choosing to tighten their belts during times of recession rather than times of prosperity face the risk of cutting off their circulation. cits? A recession climate of high unemployment, slow business and low taxes would seem like an inopportune time to After all, Republicans in recent times have rarely cared about running huge deficits when they were busy funding wars and awarding enormous tax breaks to the wealthy. The answer is that there are deeper motives that have nothing to do with It may not be the best time to balance the budget, but for ideological conservatives, it is the best time to force painful cuts to programs that provide security and opportunity for ordinary people. Therefore, the GOP is willing to hold the nations solvency and recovery hostage (as it did during the chaotic debt-ceiling crisis during the summer) to dismantle functions of government that the middle and lower classes rely on. Following the lead of tea party demagogues like Paul Ryan and Allen West, new enthusiasm to cut basic safety nets and privatize our basic securities. Students have become very familiar with the relentless attacks on public education occurring throughout the country. Equally offensive is the GOP budget coming from Congress that plans to end Medicare and replace it with an inadequate voucher system. If the true intentions of these cuts could not be transparent enough, the budget plans to redistribute much of the savings to the rich in the form of more tax cuts. President Obama called this plan laughable, taking on the tone of Franklin D. Roosevelts 1936 re-election campaign. In 1936, the GOPs own words and actions allowed the president to paint them as a laughing stock. Isolating his opponents, Roosevelt would laugh his way to victory. Given the state of the GOP today, it wont take extraordinary effort to re-employ that strategy. Ford Dwyer is a political science and history junior at UF.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Johnson peakingUF gymnast Alaina Johnson has changed her training this year and is ready for NCAAs. See story, page 16. Gators to add basketball commit?The Lakeland Ledger is reporting that Winter Haven shooting guard DeVon Walker will sign with Florida today. David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida right-handed starting pitcher Hudson Randall throws against William and Mary on Feb. 24. Randall did not throw last weekend due to a tired arm, and his status is unknown for this weekend. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Everything was set in an or derly way when the Gators began their 2012 campaign. With Hudson Randall, Karsten Whitson and Brian Johnson, Flor ida was one of the few teams in the nation that would return its entire weekend rotation. It was an area of comfort, as the Gators assumed that one of the best pitching staffs in the Southeastern Conference would only grow to get better. Were in a good place, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said before the season. But the bottom line is theyre going to have to work hard and theyre going to have to improve. Entering this weekends series at Tennessee (20-13, 6-6 SEC), No. 7 Florida (26-7, 7-5 SEC) brings a rotation different from the one that made headlines in February. The starter for the opener tonight at 6 is Jonathon Crawford, a sophomore who threw 3.2 innings as a freshman. Saturday will be Whitson, who has thrown just 7.2 innings in an injury-shortened season. Sunday is unknown. Typical Friday night starter Hudson Randall missed last weekends series against LSU with what OSullivan described as a tired arm. As of Thursday, the staff had yet to reach a decision on whether or not he will pitch this weekend, leaving Sundays matchup against Tennessee right-hander Nick Williams to be announced. I have not spoke with our trainer yet, OSullivan said Tuesday night. Im hoping hes back. Weve got a couple days to work with. Randalls last outing was his only loss of the season, a six-inning appearance at Ole Miss that began a slide for the Gators dur After dropping from No. 1 on Monday and defeating new No. 1 Gators battling uncertainty with rotation entering Vols series JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Billy Donovans coaching staff did not remain undermanned for long following last weeks departure of assistant coach Norm Roberts. On Thursday, Donovan announced the hiring of Rashon Burno, a 33-year-old former assistant coach at Manhattan College, to replace Roberts, who left Florida for a similar post at national runner-up Kansas. This is a golden opportunity for me to come in and learn the business from a future Hall of Fame coach, Burno said in a university press release. How many guys can say that? Its a blessing. Burno has been a college assistant coach for two years but was part of Jaspers coach turn Manhattan into a 21-13 club just a year following a 6-25 campaign. Hes a great worker and a high-character guy, Donovan said. Hes almost at a point now where he has a chance to grow into something special. He probably has some things hell need to learn and grow, but hes got a great upside. And hes really invested into our program because of the opportunity being given him. Before helping guide the Jaspers to a winning record, Burno began his coaching career in 2010 at Towson with his former college coach Pat Kennedy. Burno played at DePaul under Kennedy from 1998-2002 and was the team captain for his last three years. Like current UF guard Mike Rosario, Burno is a graduate of St. Anthonys High (N.J.), where he won two national championships. Gators coaching staff one day into the college basketball late signing period. Florida has one scholarship available after Walter Pitchford transferred. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org.Donovan hires new assistantBurno LACROSSE JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators Senior Day on Saturday will be an unusual one. They will only be honoring one player: attacker Caroline Cochran. Unfortunately for the teams lone sebefore it had a chance to begin. Cochran, who tore the ACL in her left knee on Feb. 15 during UFs home opener against Jacksonville, will watch from the sidelines as No. 5 Florida (132, 3-0 American Lacrosse Conference) takes on No. 17 Vanderbilt (7-5, 1-3 son. Im still not over it, Cochran said. Its really upsetting. Its not fun to sit on the sidelines. After transferring to Florida following her freshman year at Virginia in 2009, Cochran scored 46 points combined in her sophomore and junior seasons. Once her knee buckled after changing direction while trying to defend a Dolphins attacker, Cochran knew her career at UF was potentially done. She had torn the ACL in her right knee seven years ago and knew from the feeling it was the same injury. As soon as it happened, I knew it, Cochran said. I heard it. While she has been sidelined most of the season, Cochran has stayed around the team to rehab her knee and be around her teammates, who Cochran Injured Cochran to sit out Floridas first Senior DayseeSEE BASEBALL, Pa A GeE 16see SEE LAX, Pa A GeE 14 But the bottom line is theyre going to have to work hard and theyre going to have to improve.Kevin OSullivanUF coach Its really upsetting.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 Senior has stayed involved with team despite injurysaid provided a solid support system in the days following the injury. Coach Amanda OLeary said Cochrans presShes a great listener, OLeary said. As an upperclassman and as a senior shes been through a lot of things, and shes been really helpful to our younger players. Junior attacker Kitty Cullen was impressed by Cochrans attitude from the outset of her rehab, noting that it can only help to have someone with such a positive personality around the team. She couldve gotten hurt and blown the rest of us off, Cullen said. She didnt do that at all. She had such a great attitude. Even the day after she found out her ACL was torn, she had such a positive outlook on everything. While the Gators have been successful on offense this season, leading the country in both goals and goals per game, losing Cochran left a void in the unconventional ways. As a left-handed attacker, Cochran could naturally attack from the left side, something none of the other starters could do. She gave us the opportunity to work Gabi (Wiegand) can go on that left side. (Caroline) Chesterman can go on that side, but its always nice to have a true lefty. While she is upset her career ended with an injury, Cochran said she is proud of what her teammates have accomplished this year and she is looking time as a Gator. Its obviously going to be really sad, Cochran said. I know that I will be really emotional, but Im sure it will be exciting as well.

Just two weeks earlier on March 28, UF dropped a home game to USF, so Florida (35-5, 15-2, Southeastern Conference) will look to use its weekend series against Auburn (26-15, 5-11 SEC), starting Friday night at 6, as redemption. Thankfully for the Gators, their series against the Tigers doesnt fall on a weekmidweek games. But Michelle Moultrie isnt worried. And although the seasoned Florida veteran doesnt see a problem, sophomore Cheyenne Coyle hinted at the teams struggle to come back in a game after losing to USF. Its important to get the runs back as The longer you wait to get the runs back, the harder it is going to be. If they Coyle said she wanted her team to focus on that in last weeks midweek against FSU but her words could not carry over into this week. Just as they did against the Bulls, the inning against the Knights on Wednesday offense. Scoring in midweek games has been a problem all year for Florida. On a Wednesmore than four runs per game. But every other day, they average nearly seven runs. The difference is night and day when comparing Floridas last weekend series against Ole Miss to its last three Wednesday games against USF, FSU and UCF. Against the Rebels, the Gators averaged 9.3 runs per game, while in three midweek with nine of those coming against the Seminoles. Still, Hannah Rogers places the blame on the opposing pitchers and not her teams offense. Rogers said after the loss to UCF. (She) consecutive Womens College World Series, their offense will have to learn to put especially when falling behind early in a game like they did against USF and UCF.

Six players are ranked nationally in singles, including three in the top 25. Two doubles teams are also in top-ranked team. However, if there had to be one question mark for the defending national champions with the postseason rapidly approaching, its the Gators No. 3 doubles team. With a combined record of 33-3 for the top two doubles teams, Florida has not frequently had to worry about how the third team performs. The postseason, however, could be different. If one of the top two doubles teams were to lose, the Gators would need their No. 3 team to win to secure the doubles point. Coach Roland Thornqvist insists there is no concern. In fact, players form the No. 3 doubles team. We play a little differently he said. We have three players rotating at that spot. Its nice for us to have something that we can really focus on at this point in the seaWhile the wins the teams are racking up may not be dominant, he said that winning is all that matters.

Sometimes we get caught up minutes, two being done in 42 minutes and threes winning in 55 minutes, and were not happy Between Alex Cercone, Olivia Janowicz and Caroline Hitimana, the Gators have three players who can be paired together to play on court No. 3. The pairings of Cercone and Janowicz and Hitimana and respectively. Cercone and Hitimana are 2-1 together. While those records indicate plenty of success, Thornqvist also sees room for growth, even at this point in the season.

Florida State on Tuesday, Florida is looking to get back to where it was before the season took a bad turn. it might not matter. Although the Volunteers have picked up upsets of No. 3 Kentucky and No. 10 South Carolina this season, their lineup will hardly have Florida pitchers concerned. No team in the SEC has fewer hits or RBI than Tennessee this season. Only Alabama, owners of a 13-20 record this year, has scored fewer runs or registered a lower team batting average than Tennessee. The Gators have won nine out of their last 10 meetings with the Volunteers, outscoring nine victories. Aside from all of this, Florida isnt changing its tune. Thus is the case when a loss to North Florida and two winnable lost causes against LSU are still fresh on the mind. Weve got obviously a tough weekend series against Tennessee, OSullivan said. Obviously this weekend we will have played 12 out of 15 on the road. Its been obvious that we havent played our best baseball. Tennessee is a chance to continue to reignite a season that was destined for greatness not too long ago and work through another weekend with a pitching rotation different than the ones fans have come to expect. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Ashane Dickersons performance put her in the spotlight last Saturday, but another UF gymnast pieced together an impressive NCAA Regionals showing. In No. 1 seed Floridas victory, sophomore Alaina Johnson stepped up in a big way as well, recording a 39.55 to place secher other two events, Johnson tallied 9.85. Her vault was gorgeous, coach Rhonda Faehn said. All around, she did a spectacular job. Shes just competing with such energy and passion this year. Its really nice to see her taking it all in, understanding it and loving it. UF has taken a different approach with managing Johnson this season after she struggled with peaking at the right time in 2011. Throughout her career, she has dealt with stress fractures in her ribs and shins along with soreness in her right elbow. At last seasons end, she broke down physically due to repeated pounding on does too much, Faehn said. It was always a matter of making sure if we have to cut her numbers down in training, then thats what we have to do so she can be OK for the competitions. For the coaching staff, it was a premium all year to keep Johnson as healthy as possible in time for the postseason. Because of this, she did not compete as an all-arounder So far, UFs strategy with Johnson has worked well, as she seems to be reaching her zenith with NCAAs in one week. corded an all-around score of at least 39.40. In her three most recent competitions, she has averaged at least a 9.84 in each event. try individually this season with a regional Were all peaking when we need to be. Thats what we missed last year, Johnson said. Last year, we started earlier. This year, we started later, which has helped a lot. played a huge role in her recent rise. With a year of experience under her belt, she now knows what to expect when UF competes in Duluth, Ga., on April 20. Season didnt end the way we wanted it to last year, she said. That helps us want to give more effort and go even harder.

ADMINISTRATION ERIN JESTER and JOEY FLECHASAlligator Staff WritersTALLAHASSEE Administrators from UF and Florida State University met in the state Capitol on Thursday to lobby Gov. Rick Scott to sign a bill that would allow both universities to charge marketrate tuition. The bill, which was passed by the Florida Legislature last month, would allow universities that meet certain criteria to raise tuition by more than the current cap of 15 percent per year. UF and FSU are the only universities that make the cut right now. Rep. Bill Proctor, who supports the bill, argued that pertmitting UF and FSU to raise tuition to market rate would allow them to achieve national pre-eminence. Increasing the quality of education would better prepare students for entering the workforce, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math The importance of major research universities to the state and the nations economy can not be overstated, Proctor said in support of the bill. During his presentation, FSU President Eric Barron said the Top 100 research universities attract $40 billion in federal and corporate research, while the next 550 universities garner only $10 billion. He noted that the market will protect against unbridled tuition increases, and that the goal of market-rate tuition isnt to limit ac-UF, FSU push for Gov. Scott to sign tuition bill JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterHundreds of graduate students moved as one Thursday to protest proposed cuts to an engineering department. They gathered on the Reitz Union Colonfor a discussion and lined the auditorium walls at the McKnight Brain Institute for a Faculty Senate meeting. But no matter where they were, their message stayed the same: Save CISE. The Florida Legislature recently passed a plan that would reduce the budget for UFs College of Engineering by 5.86 percent, according to a proposal by Dean Cammy Abernathy. Combined with other expenses, this totals about $4 million that must be cut or repurposed. Abernathys plan includes moving all computer engineering degree programs from the Computer and Information Science and Engineering department to the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. CISE teaching assistants would be eliminated, as would research and graduate staff, according to the proposal. Half of the faculty could move to another department. I dont know that our college has been through something quite like this in our 100year history, Abernathy said at a meeting Thursday.

He just wants to forget, he said. But he cant. His younger brother, Joel, cant either. Its crazy, Jude said. This is a position you never want to be in in your life. Gainesville Police said Jude, 21, a nursing student at Santa Fe College, shot Michael Crace, 20, three times near the chest in self-defense on April 2. They were in their apartment at Mill Run Condominiums, located off Southwest 20th Avenue. Jude Rizzo has not been charged, though the case remains open as detectives await Craces autopsy results, said GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri. That could take months. Tabitha Hardy, one of Craces former co-workers at Moes Southwest Grill, said Crace and the Rizzo brothers did not get along. Crace They werent paying rent, she said. But Jude insists this isnt true.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE VIRUS CAN BE PICKED UP FROM ANY TYPE OF WEBSITE. KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Contributing WriterMorgan Russell didnt know her Apple computer could get a virus, but it turns out her Mac isnt as invincible as she thought. About 600 Mac computers on the UF campus were suspected to be infected with a Trojan virus called Flashback as of Thursday, said Jim Hranicky, an information security monitoring specialist for UFs Information Security team. The team is monitoring computers on the UF networks in search of the virus. This is one of the bigger infections that Ive had to deal with, Hranicky said. Russell, a 19-year-old marketing sophomore, received an email from UF DHNet Internet Services on Wednesday saying there had been an outbreak of a new virus among Mac computers on campus. An update, sent Thursday evening, recommended using the free ClamXav software to prevent infection. For computers already affected, it suggested downloading a Java security update from Apples website. It also recommended that Mac users run their computers built-in Software Update feature. The virus, which can be acquired while visiting almost any type of website, allows hackers to access personal information such as passwords and bank account numbers, said Ross Newman, CEO of iHospital, a computer repair business. It does have the potential to do great damage, he said.Virus affects about 600 students Macs on campusHEALTH ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterUF students who have not had chickenpox or its vaccine should beware of the itchy virus in the upcoming weeks. It has been steadily infecting students in Alachua County schools. The Alachua County Health Department has reported 70 cases of chickenpox since January, 65 of which have been in the northwest part of the county. We are concerned that, given the foothold that this disease has been able to gain in this part of the county, there is potential for this outbreak to increase in all parts, said Paul Myers, administrator of the Alachua County Health Department. There is an onslaught of symptoms before bumps appear, including a fever, UF Student Health Center Director Dr. Phillip Barkley said. It is common to not suspect the virus until the itchy blisters surface. Barkley said the fact that UF does not require its students to receive the Varicella vaccination before they start classes has caused concern on campus. It is something that we may want to look into changing, Barkley said. There have been no cases of chickenpox reported on UFs campus this year, he said. Students who have not had the virus or been vaccinated for it should get vaccinated as soon as possible. The Student Health Care Center offers the vaccine to students who call ahead or walk in. The affected schools include Alachua Elementary School, W.W. Irby Elementary School, High Springs Community School, Mebane Middle School, Santa Fe High School, Bhaktivedanta Academy and the Alachua Learning Center. The county health department has demanded that unvaccinated students at those schools stay home until the week of April 25, Myers said.

cess to top universities to wealthy students. Scott asked what UF and FSU plan to do with the extra tuition money. The key to quality, from where I sit, is faculty, said UF President Bernie Machen. More faculty members will yield more research, which means UF will be able to snag more research dollars, he said. The governor thanked Machen, Barron and the other university to present their arguments. Its always interesting to get everybodys perspective when you go through a decision like this because you want to make sure that families in this state can afford a great education, Scott said. He has about a week left to sign the bill, and he said he expects more people to weigh in on the subject before he makes his decision. I think hes seriously trying to do what he thinks is the right thing, Machen said. I think it was time well spent. Contact Erin Jester at ejester@ alligator.org.

CAITLIN HARTLEYAlligator Contributing WriterElizabeth Graham will take the trip of her dreams this summer. Its not a cruise to the Bahamas or a week in Paris. Its a trip to the 2012 ESPY awards. Graham was the winner of ESPNUs Ultimate College Sports Fan contest. Contestants submitted oneminute videos saying why they believed they were the biggest college sports fans. The grand prize is an all-expenses-paid trip for two to the ESPYs in Los Angeles. The annual award show, hosted by ESPN, honors the best athletes and most memorable moments from the world of sports. Graham, 23, is an electrical engineering graduate student and has been at UF for six years. She said she is ecstatic her video won, and she cannot wait to get to California. Shes taking her boyfriend, Alex Everett, a 21-year-old chemical engineering senior. When I heard about the contest, I didnt even know about the prize, Graham said. Most of my friends will tell you that I am one of the most passionate fans, so thats why I decided to enter because I knew The video submissions were judged based on ratings given by viewers, creativity, relevance to the contest theme and entertainment value. After the judging period was voting round. Whoever got the most votes on Facebook by April 3 won the grand prize. Graham said she spread the word through Facebook and Twitter while enlisting the help of friends and family. My mom basically sent out an email to her entire address book, Graham said. One of my moms co-workers said she thought the video actually undersold how big of a Gator fan I am, but I only had one minute. Telecommunication sophomore Daniel Gibble, 20, said he was going to enter the contest too, but he missed the deadline. Its probably a good thing I didnt enter, Gibble said. Elizabeth seems like a much bigger sports fan than I am. Graham, who has attended at least one sporting event for every sports team at UF, said her love of Gator sports began before she ever set foot on campus. Graham said she remembers ball game and knew she was in for something special. I remember following them all the way through the tournament, and then they won! After that, I knew I was going to go to every single basketball game. Until she leaves for the July 11 award show, Graham said shell continue doing what she does best: cheering on her teams. Yes, theres a crappy feeling you get when you lose, Graham said, but fortunately for me, I go to a school like Florida where that doesnt happen as much. I get to experience the amazing feeling of us winning a lot more than the disappointment of us losing. FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 David Carr / Alligator Staff Stadium on Wednesday.

Why is the government involving itself in the energy conWashington believes it must transform the U.S. into a clean-energy economy, essentially because countries like Germany and China are trying to do the same. Because the U.S. is the best country in the world, it must show the rest of the world that Earths top dog is, in fact, still on top. Government intervention in the energy sector is nonsensical, and the statement by President Obama proves it. The president claims that because of federal investment in renewable energy production, Americans have more jobs. To talk without thinking. someone throws a rock and it breaks the window of a karate dojo. Now the sensei must spend money to hire a window hire a new instructor, buying a new car or investing. The broken window diverts capital from where it would have naturally gone and spends capital elsewhere. The same is true when it comes to government. Government spending to promote clean energy and green jobs does so at the expense of where the market would have this way, the government cannot ever truly create any jobs or create any wealth. So what should the governAmericans have heard both par ties clamor for an all-of-theapproach, as Roy Cordato of the John Locke Foundation says. Government should stop spending our money to develop uneconomical energy sources. According to a report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, by 2016, the cost per kilowatt-hour will alternative energy will cost 8.6 cents for hydro, 9.7 cents for wind, 10.2 cents for geothermal, 11.3 cents for biomass, 11.4 cents for nuclear, 21.1 cents for solar (photovoltaic cells) and 24.3 cents for offshore wind. Clearly, almost all forms of alternative energy just cannot compete in the marketplace, so the government foolishly The energy issue should not be demagogued into a cleanenergy versus dirty-energy economy. Instead, the energy issue should be framed by which energy sources make the most economic sense. Its ironic that politicians are elected through a democratic model in which the will of the majority wins, yet they condemn the same model in the energy business. Government cannot create green jobs anymore than a broken window cannot and ought not to wastefully spend money to develop quixotic energy. The best ideas in the energy sector will develop and eventually rise without governments help, and it must be the people, with the collection of their individual choices, who make that decision.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorArticle about arrest of transgender person perpetuates stereotypesShame on Tyler Jett and the Alligator for publishing Resident charged with shaking his wee-wee on April 6. I believe this article exhibits extreme bias. This type of journalism perpetuates stereotypes and the fear of people who are transgender. Transgender individuals regularly face discrimination and violence. Why would the Alligator want to add to and promote this type of bigotry and potential for violence? I perceived the article as offensive, biased, rude, demeaning and blatantly ignorant on many levels. I personally know Zot as an upstanding, honest, hardworking, trustworthy community member who spends a great deal of her time working for social justice. She reguIts bad enough that the article presents the allegations as factual, but its use of Zots gender status to sensationalize the story adds to my reaction of shock and disgust. This type of ignorance has no place in a newspaper that is associated with a university campus where education is supposedly revered. In my opinion, this was extremely irresponsible journalism that created the potential for severely harmful consequences. I believe that the Alligator and Tyler Jett have an ethical obligation to provide Zot Szurgot with a written apology that is published in the Alligator in the name of responsible journalism. I also request that a separate article be published, along the lines of An Education in Transgender Cultural Competency, in which detailed factual information is provided on how to be an ally to transgender people. I am part of an organization called Spectrum Trans Awareness. We have been doing free Cultural Competency Trainings on Transgender Awareness in the Gainesville community since 2010. We started this organization because this type of prejudice is far too common in our community. We would like to offer our services to the staff of the Alligator to assist them to become educated about these issues and to provide responsible journalism regarding gender issues to the community. We would also be happy to assist in writing the educational piece regarding transgender cultural competency. Please feel free to contact us at spectrumgainesville@ yahoo.com for more information. Laurie Reisman UF alumna Gainesville resident The Alligator should Dart itselfThe next time the Alligator jumps to conclusions based on police reports, think again. Zot Szurgot is a very good, longtime friend of mine. Hes also one of the most decent, caring people I know. Perhaps it was not anything more than stepping out of a house on a warm Gainesville day into a secluded yard and taking a whiz. The neighbors with a grudge called in a complaint. They were also, according to the Suns article, 100 feet away. The dart goes to you. Joe Courter Gainesville resident President Obama is right to claim that the Republican Party has been radical and extremist in its approach ingly blunt rhetoric. The president clearly realizes his reelection hangs partially on his ability to contrast his record and ideas to those of the GOP. Theoretically, that shouldnt be hard to do. The presidents legacy throughout most of this great recession has been attempting to maneuver around unprecedented obstruction by the Republican Party positioning to regain power. The GOP has been clear from the beginning, in the midst of a national crisis, that it would do whatever it took to ensure Obama fails. Sadly, Republicans have reacted to the recession and Obamas re-election by moving much further to the right of the political spectrum. interest rates and the bond market, the only the top priority, but also a magical key to prosperity. This couldnt be further from the truth. In fact, severe cuts in government spending during a recession will suck critically needed demand from a fragile economy, as was seen in Japan during its Lost Decade and in the U.S. in 1937. Put simply, governments choosing to tighten their belts during times of recession rather than times of prosperity face the risk of cutting off their circulation. cits? A recession climate of high unemployment, slow business and low taxes would seem like an inopportune time to After all, Republicans in recent times have rarely cared about running huge deficits when they were busy funding wars and awarding enormous tax breaks to the wealthy. The answer is that there are deeper motives that have nothing to do with It may not be the best time to balance the budget, but for ideological conservatives, it is the best time to force painful cuts to programs that provide security and opportunity for ordinary people. Therefore, the GOP is willing to hold the nations solvency and recovery hostage (as it did during the chaotic debt-ceiling crisis during the summer) to dismantle functions of government that the middle and lower classes rely on. Following the lead of tea party demagogues like Paul Ryan and Allen West, new enthusiasm to cut basic safety nets and privatize our basic securities. Students have become very familiar with the relentless attacks on public education occurring throughout the country. Equally offensive is the GOP budget coming from Congress that plans to end Medicare and replace it with an inadequate voucher system. If the true intentions of these cuts could not be transparent enough, the budget plans to redistribute much of the savings to the rich in the form of more tax cuts. President Obama called this plan laughable, taking on the tone of Franklin D. Roosevelts 1936 re-election campaign. In 1936, the GOPs own words and actions allowed the president to paint them as a laughing stock. Isolating his opponents, Roosevelt would laugh his way to victory. Given the state of the GOP today, it wont take extraordinary effort to re-employ that strategy. Ford Dwyer is a political science and history junior at UF.

FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Johnson peakingUF gymnast Alaina Johnson has changed her training this year and is ready for NCAAs. See story, page 16. Gators to add basketball commit?The Lakeland Ledger is reporting that Winter Haven shooting guard DeVon Walker will sign with Florida today. David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida right-handed starting pitcher Hudson Randall throws against William and Mary on Feb. 24. Ran dall did not throw last weekend due to a tired arm, and his status is unknown for this weekend. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Everything was set in an or derly way when the Gators began their 2012 campaign. With Hudson Randall, Karsten Whitson and Brian Johnson, Flor ida was one of the few teams in the nation that would return its entire weekend rotation. It was an area of comfort, as the Gators assumed that one of the best pitching staffs in the Southeastern Conference would only grow to get better. Were in a good place, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said before the season. But the bottom line is theyre going to have to work hard and theyre going to have to improve. Entering this weekends series at Tennessee (20-13, 6-6 SEC), No. 7 Florida (26-7, 7-5 SEC) brings a rotation different from the one that made headlines in February. The starter for the opener tonight at 6 is Jonathon Crawford, a sophomore who threw 3.2 innings as a freshman. Saturday will be Whitson, who has thrown just 7.2 innings in an injury-shortened season. Sunday is unknown. Typical Friday night starter Hudson Randall missed last weekends series against LSU with what OSullivan described as a tired arm. As of Thursday, the staff had yet to reach a decision on whether or not he will pitch this weekend, leaving Sundays matchup against Tennessee right-hander Nick Williams to be announced.

Randalls last outing was his only loss of the season, a six-inning appearance at Ole Miss that began a slide for the Gators dur After dropping from No. 1 on Monday and defeating new No. 1 Gators battling uncertainty with rotation entering Vols series JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Billy Donovans coaching staff did not remain undermanned for long following last weeks departure of assistant coach Norm Roberts. On Thursday, Donovan announced the hiring of Rashon Burno, a 33-year-old for mer assistant coach at Manhattan College, to replace Roberts, who left Florida for a similar post at national runner-up Kansas. This is a golden opportunity for me to come in and learn the business from a future Hall of Fame coach, Burno said in a university press release. How many guys can say that? Its a blessing. Burno has been a college assistant coach for two years but was part of Jaspers coach turn Manhattan into a 21-13 club just a year following a 6-25 campaign. Hes a great worker and a high-character guy, Donovan said. Hes almost at a point now where he has a chance to grow into something special. He probably has some things hell need to learn and grow, but hes got a great upside. And hes really invested into our program because of the opportunity being given him. Before helping guide the Jaspers to a winning record, Burno began his coaching career in 2010 at Towson with his former college coach Pat Kennedy. Burno played at DePaul under Kennedy from 1998-2002 and was the team captain for his last three years. Like current UF guard Mike Rosario, Burno is a graduate of St. Anthonys High (N.J.), where he won two national championships.

Cochran, who tore the ACL in her left knee on Feb. 15 during UFs home opener against Jacksonville, will watch from the sidelines as No. 5 Florida (132, 3-0 American Lacrosse Conference) takes on No. 17 Vanderbilt (7-5, 1-3 son. Im still not over it, Cochran said. Its really upsetting. Its not fun to sit on the sidelines. After transferring to Florida following her freshman year at Virginia in 2009, Cochran scored 46 points combined in her sophomore and junior seasons. Once her knee buckled after changing direction while trying to defend a Dolphins attacker, Cochran knew her career at UF was potentially done. She had torn the ACL in her right knee seven years ago and knew from the feeling it was the same injury. As soon as it happened, I knew it, Cochran said. I heard it. While she has been sidelined most of the season, Cochran has stayed around the team to rehab her knee and be around her teammates, who Cochran Injured Cochran to sit out Floridas first Senior DaySEE BASEBALL, P A GE 16 SEE LAX, P A GE 14 But the bottom line is theyre going to have to work hard and theyre going to have to improve.Kevin OSullivanUF coach Its really upsetting.

Coach Amanda OLeary said Cochrans presShes a great listener, OLeary said. As an upperclassman and as a senior shes been through a lot of things, and shes been really helpful to our younger players. Junior attacker Kitty Cullen was impressed by Cochrans attitude from the outset of her rehab, noting that it can only help to have someone with such a positive personality around the team. She couldve gotten hurt and blown the rest of us off, Cullen said. She didnt do that at all. She had such a great attitude. Even the day after she found out her ACL was torn, she had such a positive outlook on everything. While the Gators have been successful on offense this season, leading the country in both goals and goals per game, losing Cochran left a void in the unconventional ways. As a left-handed attacker, Cochran could naturally attack from the left side, something none of the other starters could do. She gave us the opportunity to work Gabi (Wiegand) can go on that left side. (Caroline) Chesterman can go on that side, but its always nice to have a true lefty. While she is upset her career ended with an injury, Cochran said she is proud of what her teammates have accomplished this year and she is looking time as a Gator. Its obviously going to be really sad, Cochran said. I know that I will be really emotional, but Im sure it will be exciting as well.

GATORS PLAY TIGERS TONIGHT AT 6 AT PRESSLY STADIUM. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer Everyone is looking forward to the weekend, especially the Gators. No. 3 Florida lost another midweek matchup Wednesday night when it was shut out against UCF in Orlando. Just two weeks earlier on March 28, UF dropped a home game to USF, so Florida (35-5, 15-2, Southeastern Conference) will look to use its weekend series against Auburn (26-15, 5-11 SEC), starting Friday night at 6, as redemption. Thankfully for the Gators, their series against the Tigers doesnt fall on a weekmidweek games. But Michelle Moultrie isnt worried. And although the seasoned Florida veteran doesnt see a problem, sophomore Cheyenne Coyle hinted at the teams struggle to come back in a game after losing to USF. Its important to get the runs back as The longer you wait to get the runs back, the harder it is going to be. If they Coyle said she wanted her team to focus on that in last weeks midweek against FSU but her words could not carry over into this week. Just as they did against the Bulls, the inning against the Knights on Wednesday offense. Scoring in midweek games has been a problem all year for Florida. On a Wednesmore than four runs per game. But every other day, they average nearly seven runs. The difference is night and day when comparing Floridas last weekend series against Ole Miss to its last three Wednesday games against USF, FSU and UCF. Against the Rebels, the Gators averaged 9.3 runs per game, while in three midweek with nine of those coming against the Seminoles. Still, Hannah Rogers places the blame on the opposing pitchers and not her teams offense. Rogers said after the loss to UCF.

Six players are ranked nationally in singles, including three in the top 25. Two doubles teams are also in top-ranked team. However, if there had to be one question mark for the defending national champions with the postseason rapidly approaching, its the Gators No. 3 doubles team. With a combined record of 33-3 for the top two doubles teams, Florida has not frequently had to worry about how the third team performs. The postseason, however, could be different. If one of the top two doubles teams were to lose, the Gators would need their No. 3 team to win to secure the doubles point. Coach Roland Thornqvist insists there is no concern. In fact, players form the No. 3 doubles team. We play a little differently he said. We have three players rotating at that spot. Its nice for us to have something that we can really focus on at this point in the seaWhile the wins the teams are racking up may not be dominant, he said that winning is all that matters.

Florida State on Tuesday, Florida is looking to get back to where it was before the season took a bad turn. it might not matter. Although the Volunteers have picked up upsets of No. 3 Kentucky and No. 10 South Carolina this season, their lineup will hardly have Florida pitchers concerned. No team in the SEC has fewer hits or RBI than Tennessee this season. Only Alabama, owners of a 13-20 record this year, has scored fewer runs or registered a lower team batting average than Tennessee. The Gators have won nine out of their last 10 meetings with the Volunteers, outscoring nine victories. Aside from all of this, Florida isnt changing its tune. Thus is the case when a loss to North Florida and two winnable lost causes against LSU are still fresh on the mind. Weve got obviously a tough weekend series against Tennessee, OSullivan said. Obviously this weekend we will have played 12 out of 15 on the road. Its been obvious that we havent played our best baseball. Tennessee is a chance to continue to reignite a season that was destined for greatness not too long ago and work through another weekend with a pitching rotation different than the ones fans have come to expect. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Ashane Dickersons performance put her in the spotlight last Saturday, but another UF gymnast pieced together an impressive NCAA Regionals showing. In No. 1 seed Floridas victory, sophomore Alaina Johnson stepped up in a big way as well, recording a 39.55 to place secher other two events, Johnson tallied 9.85. Her vault was gorgeous, coach Rhonda Faehn said. All around, she did a spectacular job. Shes just competing with such energy and passion this year. Its really nice to see her taking it all in, understanding it and loving it. UF has taken a different approach with managing Johnson this season after she struggled with peaking at the right time in 2011. Throughout her career, she has dealt with stress fractures in her ribs and shins along with soreness in her right elbow. At last seasons end, she broke down physically due to repeated pounding on does too much, Faehn said. It was always a matter of making sure if we have to cut her numbers down in training, then thats what we have to do so she can be OK for the competitions. For the coaching staff, it was a premium all year to keep Johnson as healthy as possible in time for the postseason. Because of this, she did not compete as an all-arounder So far, UFs strategy with Johnson has worked well, as she seems to be reaching her zenith with NCAAs in one week. corded an all-around score of at least 39.40.
