DEVON ABELMANAlligator Contributing WriterTheres no need to worry about shipping prices for online items. Target is now price-matching items from Amazon.com and other retailers throughout the year. The company announced a new policy Tuesday, saying customers will be able to receive lower prices on in-store items if they are sold cheaper on a competitors website. Accepted online competitor prices include Amazon. com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com and Toysrus.com, according to a company press release. Carrie Arnold, an executive team leader at the Target at 3970 SW Archer Road, said the store started using the program exclusively during the holiday season, which helped drive sales. During the holidays, customers mainly used the program on video games and electronics, especially iPads, Arnold said. The policy allows more options for price-matching, she said. Customers must request the price match at a stores guest services desk, according to the release. The model number of the selected item and the competitors cheaper price must be legitimate, Arnold said. We have a special application to see if the price match is valid, she said. Not worrying about shipping is a plus for Andre Or tega. I think you can get around shipping cost, the 20-yearold applied physiology and kinesiology junior said, because thats the kicker. Arnold said this is another way for Target to continue to make this a one-stop shop in Gainesville, and she expects local retailers to follow suit.

May the Dork Be With You: White House responds to Death Star petitionYou hear a lot of doom and gloom these days regarding the general strength and fortitude of our government. Theres, like, a ton of stuff going on behind closed doors, were sure, that should make all of us slightly suspicious at all times. But if we walked around like that all the time, then wed never get anything done. Its best to not think about how weirdly powerful some people actually are. Every once in a while, though, the government does something awesome instead. In November 2012, someone created a petition titled Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. The description: By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense. It earned a total of more than 34,000 signatures. That many signatures (at least 25,000 in 30 days) means the presidents ofThe title of the White Houses response: This Isnt the Petition Response Youre Looking For. Right away were in love. It was written by Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Real dorky. The response lays out some pretty logical points about why the government cant just build a Death Star.

You may have heard about it: A lady was hiding in her attic from a burglar with her two kids and her Saturday night special when he used a crowbar to bust in on them. So she did what she had to do. Next thing you know, the creeper with them two feets who came a-creepin like a black cat do Theres an important aspect of this story I need to draw attention to at this point because it perplexes the hell outta me: He didnt mean to violently intrude upon this family. The guy shows up knocking at the door, ostensibly to sell them some encyclopedias or crowbars or something. No answer. So he rings the doorbell a bunch of times, and instead of answering the door or somehow asking him what erating the familys belongings in the name of the proletariat. Like any good burglar, hes thorough, working through every room in the house until he eventually reaches the attic. He opens the door, and suddenly a relatively harmless cat burglary becomes a violent home invasion. Those with a pro-gun stance paraded this story as an example of why passing gun control legislation would be worse for America than a gay marriage between President Barack Obama and Michael Moore held on the steps of the Capitol where both tuxedos are made entirely from marijuana and birth control pills. Self-defense is a legitimate thing; there are certain human instincts that encourage self-preservation rather than lengthy later. The problematic part of how this scenario played out is not what she did in the heat of that moment. I just want to place. Cmon, you gotta at least open a window and ask the Obviously Im not saying she deserved to have her house broken into. You can try to justify her in hindsight by saying, Well, he just got out of jail in August, and hes been arrested six times since 2008, so she had a right to be scared of him. But she couldnt have Unless the news left out the part where he yelled about his time in Folsom or the fact that his T-shirt said, Ask me him initially, other than the same reason she bought the gun Shes been so conditioned by the stories of murders and home invasions that populate the evening news that she immediately went into xenophobia-induced panic mode as soon as someone whose appearance was mildly threatening intruded into her comfort zone. This lady is being rightfully praised as a hero for protecting her family in the face of danger. TY house to break into. If she had initially responded proactively by confronting him when he was a random, annoying guy hanging around ringing the doorbell incessantly, theres a nonzero chance he wouldve just made up some excuse and moved on. Instead she acted in an inexplicably irrational and paranoid way. Now hes badly wounded, maybe dying, and her kids had to watch their mother repeatedly shoot a man while he begged her, crying, to stop. Maybe guns are good, maybe theyre bad, but this story shouldve never gotten to the point where they were involved. Sometimes its easier to ask someone just what the hell they think theyre doing rather than wait for them to do it. Dallin Kelson is an English senior at UF. His column runs on Mondays.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 I wasnt particularly popular in grade school. Consumed with academics, I disengaged from the social hierarchy, not consciously, but because there around the social ladder but never stayed on one rung too long. In grade school, there were fewer social niches to inhabit, and accruing popularity points was a fulltime job. In middle and high school, everyone was landscape, and they were lying if they told you otherwise. Everyone was dying to reach an imaginary social ideal built by the students. Perception was everything. College has been a breath of fresh air for me. I have many friends who classify themselves as nerds, and they all seem to report the same feelings: The majority of grade school was a criminal waste of time and a frustrating crapshoot. College is less isolating, more rewarding and generally a better place to be. Of course, there was the occasional teacher who made things worthwhile, but in general, the monotony of American schools brings no end in misery for the classic nerd. For the nerd, self-achievement is everything. In his 2003 essay, Why Nerds are Unpopular, Paul Graham explains that nerds dont just want to be smart and do well in school. [I wanted] to design beautiful rockets, or to write well, or to understand how to program computers, he wrote. In general, to make great things. You have no idea the hell I climbed out of to come here, an acquaintance humored me on his admission to the Computer-Based Honors Program at the University of Alabama. He was a quirky, intelligent guy whom I often spotted eating alone in the dining halls my freshman year. He was a natural introvert, and he liked it. He could do what he pleased in college, pursuing a major he loved within a culture that rewarded difference and ingenuity. There is more of an incentive to be a hardworking, motivated, intellectually engaged, self-directed student in college. Nerd is no longer a derogatory term. Preferring knowledge to social dominance is not a bad thing. For the nerds, it does get better. You just have to wait niche. Tarif Haque is a columnist for The Crimson White at the University of Alabama.Nerd isnt so negative any moreGuest columnTarif HaqueUWire If the question sounds dramatic, allow me to elucidate. The most recently adjourned congressional body, steeped in fringe politics and partisan interests, could barely perform its fundamental civic duty of voting on and Congress ever, compromising the least to consider the fewest bills while enacting even fewer many of which were routine or mundane matters like reapproving administrative U.S. Postal Service hangs on the brink of bankruptcy. A Senate that is constitutionally sanctioned to form its own rules and procedures has embraced obstructionism to someone keeps talking no one has to worry about actually passing laws. The Senate does not have to do its job. Congress allegedly serves ordinary citizens in matters of law, but our representatives have focused mostly on promoting themselves, kowtowing to deep pockets and special inLobbying has become an extensive industry with a revolving door plainly situated between the public and private sectors. Even if a cabal of billionaires were ultimately unable to purchase the presidency for their fanatical free-market darling, it is no less assuring that President Barack Obamas breaks embedded in the recent Band-Aid legislation adabout everyone while essentially nothing was done to curb an unsustainable, decade-long federal spending spree. Tax breaks for corporations are one thing, but exoneration for clear criminal activity is another entirely. I could face life in prison for distributing cocaine just once at Dartmouth. British bank HSBC knowingly helped Mexican drug cartels launder billions of dollars through the U.S. banking system over the course of a decade. The Department of Justice slapped the pursue criminal charges, citing fears system. First they were too big to fail. Now they are too big to jail. While innocent moviegoers and schoolchildren are gunned down, our nation defers to a vaguely worded passage in a 200-year-old document, as if our nations founders had prophesied the development and proliferation of lethalBill of Rights. Maybe instead of jury-rigging legal arguments to stay in line with some constitutional precedent, we need to reconsider the Constitution itself. I acknowledge that mine is an audacious suggestion. To be clear, I fully appreciate the ingenuity of our founders creation and do not propose a complete overhaul. But the idea that the social, cultural and political environment in which our Constitution was created would yield solutions that remain eternally relevant in an increasingly complex and interconnected world is absurd. The Founders may have known stitutional amendments, and more radically, the formation of a constitutional convention to propose and enact multiple amendments at once. The need for such a convention and a comprehensive reformulation of a systemically problematic political system is inevitable. That may come two or two thousand years in the future, but in light of recent events, the conversation is warranted right now.

MARJORIE NUNEZAlligator Contributing WriterWhen it comes to e-readers, the consensus on owning a device is that its convenient. But convenience may not be enough to wipe out print books forever. According to a 2012 report from Bowker, a worldwide provider of bibliographic information, print books are here to stay despite the increase in popularity of ebook readers such as the Kindle, iPad and other tablets. The Bowker study showed that in America, 4 percent more women use ereaders than men. A study published from the Pew Research Center in 2012 showed that 72 per cent of American adults during the previous year had read a print book, compared with the 17 percent of adults who read ebooks. It also reported 81 percent of responders said they prefer to read print books with children. About 70 percent said they prefer to share physical books with other people. Although readers can hold their entire book collections on one device, Jan Fronk, owner of Book Gallery West, a new and used bookstore located in the Millhopper Shopping Center, said her customers still enjoy reading physical books. What people keep telling us is that they love the feel of having a book in their hands, Fronk said. Kristen Zych, a 22-year-old physics senior, said she bought a Nook Simple Touch so she could read A Feast for Crows, the fourth book in a seven-part series. At 1,104 pages, it weighs a pound. I didnt want to carry around this series of books, she said. Celina Rodriguez, a 20-year-old biology junior, said she bought a tablet to use for class. She uses it as an e-reader on long car rides because she can travel with a lot of books and no bulk. Though she reads on her tablet often, Rodriguez said she also enjoys reading print books, especially books by some of her favorite authors, J.K. Rowling and Chuck Palahniuk. You read books to not be on the computer, she said. I think print books will never go out of style. They have been here forever. Casey Robbins, a 24-year-old clerk at Book Gallery West, said she owns two ereaders but does not use them often. She only uses the devices for periodicals and books she can get for free. People that read both are way more prevalent than people who only read ebooks, Roberts said. Books will be here well into the future. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013Andrea Sarcos / Alligator LIFEsS TYLEE-readers may be popular, but print books are here to stay NATHALIE MCCRATEAlligator Contributing WriterKristopher McCullough hovered over a table crowded with Star and DVDs. Clad in a maroon and black Voyager uniform, the 35-year-old Subway employee recalled his 10th Star Trek item: a model of the Star ship Enterprise. Since then, his passion for the series has only grown. On Saturday, McCullough shared his collection with thousands of people at the 34th Annual Collectors Day at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Tiffany Ireland, education assistant for the museum, said about 1,500 people attended Saturdays event, where more than 60 hobbyists laid out their collections on tables. From chess sets to bonsai plants to brass toasting forks, each presenter had his or her own reasons for collecting. For John Puckett, collecting business cards is not only a hobby but a passion. The 65-year-old retired Lowes Home Improvement employee said he has been collecting cards since the mid-1960s. Pucketts extensive collection includes cards fashioned out of metal, wood, leather and plastic. He also has a blue-and-white Microsoft card from Bill Gates and a gold-embossed card from Donald Trump. Puckett said he likes to see how peoples minds work and how creative they can get with their card designs. Everyones trying to come up with a card that people wont throw away, he said. At one point, Puckett said, he had more than 1 million cards, which led him to downsize his collection to 400,000 cards. Puckett cautions aspiring collectors to be sure they are comfortable with the items they plan on collecting. Its like getting a tattoo, he said. Make sure you really want to collect it because youre going to be stuck with it. Some collections can start entirely on accident. One day at work, Pucketts wife, Cindy Puckett, 60, displayed a purple hippopotamus on her desk. Overzealous co-workers thought she collected hippos and began bringing her purple hippo pillows, bath toys, key chains and tape dispensers, John Puckett said. Now, its gone out of control, he said. Youll think you have everything purple hippo, but then another one will show up.Hobbyists show off personal collections at annual event JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Journalism and Comdebut a new masters program focused on social media. Spiro Kiousis, director of distance education at the journalism school, wrote in an email that factors such as industry demands, student desires for the subject and UFs strengths in digital communication and research went into the decision to start the program. The online program takes as little as 18 months to complete. It is aimed at working professionals, so that they can take what they learn and apply it to their current job. Recruitment for the inaugural class began earlier this month, Kiousis said. Applicants should have two years of relevant professional communications experience, a 3.0 undergraduate GPA and three letters of recommendation, among other requirements. Classes start this summer and last 12 weeks. Students can take up to three classes at a time, according to a program brochure. Students in the program can choose to gree in social media.

The ant school relies on citizen science, a project where people all over the country collect data from their own backyard to send to experts for review. Andrea Lucky, head of the School of Ants and assistant research scientist in the UF Department of Entomology and Nematology, said about 1,000 samples have been sent to the school, which has helped monitor new species and see if they are expanding. Lucky said more than 100 people have gotten involved with the project. A lot of people have responded by getting interested in critters that live in and around their yards, she said. Some people have been responsible for discovering new ranges for problematic species. Since Lucky took a position at UF in Fall 2012, the original ant school, based at North Carolina State University, will now share its headquarters at UF. Its important to know that anyone can participate, Lucky said. Sampling ants involves placing Keebler Sandies Pecan Shortbread cookies traps outdoors in green spaces for an hour. After gathering data overnight, the kits can be mailed to UF for Ants website. To get involved with the School of Ants, people can visit www.schoolofants.org.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 Javier Edwards / AlligatorTo Sleep, Perchance to DreamTwo-year-old Rickey sleeps in his mothers arms as she stands at an altar at Spirit of Faith Christian Center on Sunday. Its services are held each Sunday in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The ministry hopes to build its own facility called the Dream Center in the future. BROWZINE IS AVAILABLE AS A TRIAL UNTIL JAN. 31. EVAN WALKERAlligator Staff WriterUF is trying out a new iPad app, free to students, that could make academic research a far less cumbersome experience. BrowZine, available as a trial for all students and faculty until Jan. 31, lets its users browse, sort and save scholarly and peer-reviewed articles on the go. Once retrieved and saved, an article can be accessed without the need of an Internet connection. Depending on the feedback, well stick with the ser vice, said Denise Bennett, a librarian at the Marston Science Library. Anyone who has the app is given a link to the survey. It can be accessed directly at www.guides.uflib.ufl.edu/ browzine. BrowZine is sold only to institutions, and UF is one of about 20 colleges currently testing the service. Others have already become subscribers since its release in October, including Loyola University Chicago, Univer sity of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins University. So far, feedback has been positive, Bennett said. The trial period ends this month, after which it will be decided whether UF will become a subscriber. The service most favors people who are familiar with using scholarly articles on a regular basis. We cant really foresee undergrads getting much use out of it, Bennett said, only staff and research fellows, people who have spelow them. Such is the case for Fiona dent. The mobility would change how I can do research, if they have the right hefted the edge of the book on her Library West table and let it fall. Foley doesnt own an iPad, but there are plenty of the service. Kendall Bartsch, CEO of Third Iron, BrowZines developer, said there are cur rently more than 2,000 via the service, and thousands more will be added by the end of January. When rental iPads become available in Library West, Foley could be the one to install the app, as there are no explicit plans to preinstall the program on the Library West iPads. Whether renters can sync the saved articles on a shared device or even install it themselves is up in the air because the terms of the iPad rental agreement are still being determined, according to the Library West circulation desk. BrowZine is currently only available through the Bartsch said an Android version is in the works and slated for release by the end of March.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionWill Kenny Boynton break the Florida school record for most career points? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Gymnast Kytra Hunter won the individual all-around title during Floridas loss to LSU on Friday in Baton Rouge, La. See story, page 15. NO. 9 TENNESSEE WON 78-75. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Coach Amanda Butler had her team on the brink of upsetting No. 9 Tennessee on Sunday afternoon, a victory that would have represented arguably Floridas biggest win during her tenure. She then made her most critical mistake of the game in overtime. With less than half a minute remaining in the extra period and the score tied at 75, Butler instructed Carlie Needles to foul Tennessees Kamiko Williams, sending her to the free-throw line. Williams, a 64 percent free-throw shooter coming into the game, made 1 of 2, giving Tennessee a one-point advantage with 24 seconds remaining. Despite two chances in the waning seconds, Florida (13-5, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) could not score and its upset was thwarted in a 78-75 loss to the Volunteers on Sunday in the OConnell Center. It was one of those calculated risk sort of things, and it was a bad decision, Butler said after the game. Even though [Williams] only hit one, it still was a bad decision. She was one of their weaker free throw shooters, and sometimes, you just have a feeling. If I had it to do over again, Id trust our defense. Christin Mercer had the opportunity to offset Butlers miscue but missed two free throws with nine seconds remaining. Following two made free throws by Tennessees Bashaara Graves, Kayla Lewis front of the rim as time expired. Kristi Camara / AlligatorCoach Amanda Butler reacts to a play during Floridas 78-75 overtime loss to No. 9 Tennessee on Sunday in the OConnell Center. Floridas upset bid falls short in overtime KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer The Gators were already playing a man down in Baton Rouge, La. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario didnt dress in No. 11 Floridas 74-52 win against LSU on Saturday due to a sprained left ankle he suffered during Wednesdays 77-44 win against Georgia in the OConnell Center. But with less than two minutes left player. After Kenny Boynton missed a three with 1:46 left in the half, Casey Prather jumped up to grab the offensive rebound, landed and barely beat the shot clock with his layup to put Florida up 25-20. Prather then hobbled down the court and hunched over to grab his left ankle when he got there. Prather struggled to get to the sideline during the timeout, until he was assisted Forward steps up for Gators amid injuries LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Kenny Boynton continues to shatter UF scoring records.  Two games after breaking Lee Humphreys record for career three-pointers at Florida (290), Boynton surpassed Erving Walker and Udonis Haslem on Saturday for No. 3 on UFs all-time scoring list with 1,782 career points. The senior guards team-high 20 points propelled No. 11 Florida (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 74-52 victory against LSU in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, La. After making a free throw at the 3:16 mark in the second half, Boynton passed Walker (1,777 points), his backcourt partner for three seasons at Florida. Then with 1:04 remaining, Boynton drilled a three-pointer to climb ahead of Haslem (1,781). Boynton now sits behind only Ronnie Williams (2,090) and Andrew Moten (1,930). In 35 minutes against the Tigers, Boynton scored 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting tempts. The senior guard also grabbed seven boards. Boynton has averaged 17.3 points in before the recent stretch, he averaged only 8.6 points on 25.5 percent shooting and a 12.5 percent clip from behind the arc. I put those games behind me, Boynton said. Beginning of the year, I think it was more mental than anything. Boynton sparked an undermanned Gators squad with 15 points in the second half. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario (left ankle) was inactive, and junior forward Casey Prather suffered an apparent high left ankle sprain at half after grabbing an offensive rebound for a putback layup. I thought it was a gutsy game for our guys, considering we have two older guys not playing in the game, coach Billy Donovan said. (We were) really relying on six road. Said Boynton: If I went down, Id trust that my team would do it without me. Its really an effort thing with us. During Floridas key 21-5 run, which put the Gators up 50-25 with 12:29 remaining, Boynton scored a layup and buried two three-pointers. His 5-of-7 clip in the second half helped minutes.

I just told those guys at halftime that Caseys not coming back in, coach Billy Donovan said. Were basically down to six guys right now. With the midgame blow to their frontcourt, the Gators needed someone to step up. Will Yeguete answered the call. Florida turned around a slow offensive away from home in SEC play thanks to Yeguetes game-high 13 rebounds. I thought we won the game based on our defense, Donovan said. I thought our defense, our ability to defend the three-point line and then our ability to rebound the ball were keys in the game for us. Yeguete led the team defensively by grabbing six boards. He stepped up his perfor mance during the second half in Prathers absence. points on 4-for-6 shooting in his 25 mintis in his right knee. Still, Yeguetes 13 boards helped Florida outrebound LSU 53-34. ally interested in doing all the dirty work, things that dont necessarily show up in a stat sheet, and you dont get a lot of attention for them, Donovan said. Hes a great defender. Hes a really good pick-and-roll defender. Hes really, really good at rebounding the basketball. all the time how much I appreciate a guy like him, because the last thing I want him to feel is unappreciated. Boynton also came through big for the Gators in the second half. After going 2 game with 20 points, seven rebounds and two assists. Although Donovan credited Floridas defense with the win, Boynton still felt the Gators struggled in handling press defense. We know as a team that we got to get better at that, Boynton said.

Yeguete grabbed game-high 13 boards in victory against LSU YEGUETE, from page 13 said. This is a learning experience. This is just adding fuel to short twice against teams that we should have had different outcomes. UF entered Sunday with a 3-44 mark all-time against Tennessee (1-9 with Butler as coach), but was in position for win No. 4 against UT. Despite losing senior Jennifer George, who suffered a dislocated shoulder for the second time in three games, Florida traded punches with Tennessee (13-3, 4-0 SEC). With 3:56 remaining in the popped out and popped back in on its own. She did not return. Trailing 64-59 with 7:09 remaining in the second half, Florida responded with a 7-0 Jaterra Bonds capped the with a team-best 18 points in the game. She has led UF in scoring in all four conference games, averaging 18.8 points per game during the stretch. Bonds had an opportunity to win the game in regulation but was unable to attempt a shot after losing her balance. We were supposed to have a quick screen, but we had a mix up or a misunderstanding, Bonds said. It is what it is. You end up going to overtime, and thats what you get. Butler, who has lost to Tennessee both as a coach and a player, missed on what could victory. Instead, it is simply another setback as Florida looks to continue moving forward toward greater legitimacy. Were growing; were on a journey, Butler said. Its a process, and this is a step in it. Its a painful process and a painful step in our process. Contact Phillip Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.

Meets between the Top-10 Southeastern Conference teams are traditionally close. Since 1995, less than half a point has decided 21 of the 36 UF-LSU meetings. Friday nights meet was no different. Heading into the balance beam exercise, Florida held a .25 advantage over its SEC rival. However, uncharacteristic missteps by Olympian Bridget Sloan and All-American Marissa King resulted in Florida using a of 48.775. sealed a win by a margin of 0.3 points. Tonight will be a very positive learning experience, coach Rhonda Faehn said. that LSU is a talented team and against any team in the SEC, especially on the road, you really up with two falls on beam that isnt going to get it done. Some things were absolutely amazing and some things were a little bit rough. Faehn is certain the loss will only strengthen an already deep and experienced team. [The loss is] something that is going to be a positive where individually where they have have to improve, Faehn said. But on an evening full of blemin. The sophomore standout pieced together an impressive early-season debut performance, recording scores of 9.9-plus in each of the four all-around events. scores of 9.950 and 9.900, respectively, earned the evenings allaround event title with a score of 39.675. She matched her college best on uneven bars to share the crown with LSUs Sarie Morrison. Hunter just missed out on the LSUs Lloiminica Hall won with a 9.95 score. Caquatto won the beam title with a score of 9.95. Hunter was second with 9.9. Hunters sturdiness was on display from the get-go. She was competing with tremendous discipline and focus. Her vault, I couldve given it a 10 it was beautiful, Faehn said. Aside from the individual accolades, Hunter stressed the importance of refocusing. This has put a bad taste in our mouths and this is not the way we wanted to start our (SEC) season, Hunter said. But it is a stepping stone and it needs to be a step that we learn of the season.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 Floridas 78-75 overtime loss to No. 9 Tennessee was a wasted opportunity. The Gators missed out on their biggest win since, well, the last time they beat the Volunteers in 2009. On a campus where the womens basketball program struggles to gain relevance and attention, a win against Tennessee would have meant the world. ond half was not enough. Neither was pushing a Top-10 juggernaut into overtime. Despite playing arguably its best game of the season, UF still lost. Folks enjoyed playing what if for a couthey stopped caring. It was fun while it lasted. Sundays crowd of 2,609 was an anomaly. Floridas 10 home games this season have averaged 1,055 spectators, which ranks next to last in the Southeastern Conference. The spotlight came and went. The Gators never had a chance to win. The Volunteers are just too good. Should facing just another SEC opponent be so daunting? No. Should Florida celebrate a moral victory after losing a close game to Tennessee? Hell, no. But in their current state, the Gators are stuck playing catch-up. Its hard to lead the pack with lackluster support. In 2011, Floridas expenses for womens basketball numbered $3,018,356, which ranked 29th nationally. Tennessee led the nation with expenses totaling $5,892,060. Logically speaking, the gap between the Gators and the Volunteers is not alarming. After all, the UT womens basketball program is a winning machine built by Pat Summitt, the greatest college basketball coach ever (Yeah, I said it. What are you going to do about it?). Meanwhile, womens basketball is the only sport at UF that has not won a conference championship. However, the main cause for concern is that Florida ranked ninth in womens basketball expenses among SEC teams in 2011. Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Auburn, Arkansas, LSU, Georgia and Kentucky all spend more than UF. This is not a cry for the University Athletic Association to pour more money into womens basketball, but what Florida puts into the team speaks volumes. How much does the administration care about the sport? When the Gators earned a bid in the 2011 Womens National Invitation Tournament, they played Florida Gulf Coast in Fort Myers. In a tournament where homecourt advantage is earned through a bidding process, how in the world did FGCU outspend UF? Seems ludicrous, right? Apathy is the most reasonable conclusion. Given Floridas resources and its all-around success in sports, the futility of the womens basketball program should be embarrassing. However, despite whatever the administrations attitude toward the womens basketball program may be, UF should still be better. Butler is the fastest coach to win 100 games in program history, but does seasons really warrant a contract extension? Butlers predecessor, Carolyn Peck, was ed for producing nearly the same resume? Anything other than March Madness should be considered a failure at UF. And no, the WNIT does not count as March Madness, so dont use that to champion Butlers cause. Other small sports are winning SEC and national championships, and Butler received an extension for sneaking into last seasons NCAA Tournament despite winning just four games against teams in the RPI Top 50. Floridas loss to Tennessee was painful, and there are multiple parties at fault. But as long as UF treats womens basketball as an afterthought and accepts middling with coming close.

DEVON ABELMANAlligator Contributing WriterTheres no need to worry about shipping prices for online items. Target is now price-matching items from Amazon.com and other retailers throughout the year. The company announced a new policy Tuesday, saying customers will be able to receive lower prices on in-store items if they are sold cheaper on a competitors website. Accepted online competitor prices include Amazon. com, Walmart.com, BestBuy.com and Toysrus.com, according to a company press release. Carrie Arnold, an executive team leader at the Target at 3970 SW Archer Road, said the store started using the program exclusively during the holiday season, which helped drive sales. During the holidays, customers mainly used the program on video games and electronics, especially iPads, Arnold said. The policy allows more options for price-matching, she said. Customers must request the price match at a stores guest services desk, according to the release. The model number of the selected item and the competitors cheaper price must be legitimate, Arnold said. We have a special application to see if the price match is valid, she said. Not worrying about shipping is a plus for Andre Or tega. I think you can get around shipping cost, the 20-yearold applied physiology and kinesiology junior said, because thats the kicker. Arnold said this is another way for Target to continue to make this a one-stop shop in Gainesville, and she expects local retailers to follow suit.

May the Dork Be With You: White House responds to Death Star petitionYou hear a lot of doom and gloom these days regarding the general strength and fortitude of our government. Theres, like, a ton of stuff going on behind closed doors, were sure, that should make all of us slightly suspicious at all times. But if we walked around like that all the time, then wed never get anything done. Its best to not think about how weirdly powerful some people actually are. Every once in a while, though, the government does something awesome instead. In November 2012, someone created a petition titled Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. The description: By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense. It earned a total of more than 34,000 signatures. That many signatures (at least 25,000 in 30 days) means the presidents ofThe title of the White Houses response: This Isnt the Petition Response Youre Looking For. Right away were in love. It was written by Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Real dorky. The response lays out some pretty logical points about why the government cant just build a Death Star. The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. Were working hard to support blowing up planets.

We dont have a Death Star, said Shawcross, but we do who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is supporting research on building Lukes arm, Lets take ourselves as seriously as the government takes itself; take a scary amount of criticism, then apply a light layer of whimsy.Loganville woman jumped to the gunWe can learn a lot about the problematic illusionmaking tendencies of the discourse on guns by analyzing a recent news story from Loganville, Ga. You may have heard about it: A lady was hiding in her attic from a burglar with her two kids and her Saturday night special when he used a crowbar to bust in on them. So she did what she had to do. Next thing you know, the creeper with them two feets who came a-creepin like a black cat do Theres an important aspect of this story I need to draw attention to at this point because it perplexes the hell outta me: He didnt mean to violently intrude upon this family. The guy shows up knocking at the door, ostensibly to sell them some encyclopedias or crowbars or something. No answer. So he rings the doorbell a bunch of times, and instead of answering the door or somehow asking him what erating the familys belongings in the name of the proletariat. Like any good burglar, hes thorough, working through every room in the house until he eventually reaches the attic. He opens the door, and suddenly a relatively harmless cat burglary becomes a violent home invasion. Those with a pro-gun stance paraded this story as an example of why passing gun control legislation would be worse for America than a gay marriage between President Barack Obama and Michael Moore held on the steps of the Capitol where both tuxedos are made entirely from marijuana and birth control pills. Self-defense is a legitimate thing; there are certain human instincts that encourage self-preservation rather than lengthy later. The problematic part of how this scenario played out is not what she did in the heat of that moment. I just want to place. Cmon, you gotta at least open a window and ask the Obviously Im not saying she deserved to have her house broken into. You can try to justify her in hindsight by saying, Well, he just got out of jail in August, and hes been arrested six times since 2008, so she had a right to be scared of him. But she couldnt have Unless the news left out the part where he yelled about his time in Folsom or the fact that his T-shirt said, Ask me him initially, other than the same reason she bought the gun Shes been so conditioned by the stories of murders and home invasions that populate the evening news that she immediately went into xenophobia-induced panic mode as soon as someone whose appearance was mildly threatening intruded into her comfort zone. This lady is being rightfully praised as a hero for protecting her family in the face of danger. TY house to break into. If she had initially responded proactively by confronting him when he was a random, annoying guy hanging around ringing the doorbell incessantly, theres a nonzero chance he wouldve just made up some excuse and moved on. Instead she acted in an inexplicably irrational and paranoid way. Now hes badly wounded, maybe dying, and her kids had to watch their mother repeatedly shoot a man while he begged her, crying, to stop. Maybe guns are good, maybe theyre bad, but this story shouldve never gotten to the point where they were involved. Sometimes its easier to ask someone just what the hell they think theyre doing rather than wait for them to do it. Dallin Kelson is an English senior at UF. His column runs on Mondays.

MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 I wasnt particularly popular in grade school. Consumed with academics, I disengaged from the social hierarchy, not consciously, but because there around the social ladder but never stayed on one rung too long. In grade school, there were fewer social niches to inhabit, and accruing popularity points was a fulltime job. In middle and high school, everyone was landscape, and they were lying if they told you otherwise. Everyone was dying to reach an imaginary social ideal built by the students. Perception was everything. College has been a breath of fresh air for me. I have many friends who classify themselves as nerds, and they all seem to report the same feelings: The majority of grade school was a criminal waste of time and a frustrating crapshoot. College is less isolating, more rewarding and generally a better place to be. Of course, there was the occasional teacher who made things worthwhile, but in general, the monotony of American schools brings no end in misery for the classic nerd. For the nerd, self-achievement is everything. In his 2003 essay, Why Nerds are Unpopular, Paul Graham explains that nerds dont just want to be smart and do well in school. [I wanted] to design beautiful rockets, or to write well, or to understand how to program computers, he wrote. In general, to make great things. You have no idea the hell I climbed out of to come here, an acquaintance humored me on his admission to the Computer-Based Honors Program at the University of Alabama. He was a quirky, intelligent guy whom I often spotted eating alone in the dining halls my freshman year. He was a natural introvert, and he liked it. He could do what he pleased in college, pursuing a major he loved within a culture that rewarded difference and ingenuity. There is more of an incentive to be a hardworking, motivated, intellectually engaged, self-directed student in college. Nerd is no longer a derogatory term. Preferring knowledge to social dominance is not a bad thing. For the nerds, it does get better. You just have to wait niche. Tarif Haque is a columnist for The Crimson White at the University of Alabama.Nerd isnt so negative any moreGuest columnTarif HaqueUWire If the question sounds dramatic, allow me to elucidate. The most recently adjourned congressional body, steeped in fringe politics and partisan interests, could barely perform its fundamental civic duty of voting on and Congress ever, compromising the least to consider the fewest bills while enacting even fewer many of which were routine or mundane matters like reapproving administrative U.S. Postal Service hangs on the brink of bankruptcy. A Senate that is constitutionally sanctioned to form its own rules and procedures has embraced obstructionism to someone keeps talking no one has to worry about actually passing laws. The Senate does not have to do its job. Congress allegedly serves ordinary citizens in matters of law, but our representatives have focused mostly on promoting themselves, kowtowing to deep pockets and special inLobbying has become an extensive industry with a revolving door plainly situated between the public and private sectors. Even if a cabal of billionaires were ultimately unable to purchase the presidency for their fanatical free-market darling, it is no less assuring that President Barack Obamas breaks embedded in the recent Band-Aid legislation adabout everyone while essentially nothing was done to curb an unsustainable, decade-long federal spending spree. Tax breaks for corporations are one thing, but exoneration for clear criminal activity is another entirely. I could face life in prison for distributing cocaine just once at Dartmouth. British bank HSBC knowingly helped Mexican drug cartels launder billions of dollars through the U.S. banking system over the course of a decade. The Department of Justice slapped the pursue criminal charges, citing fears system. First they were too big to fail. Now they are too big to jail. While innocent moviegoers and schoolchildren are gunned down, our nation defers to a vaguely worded passage in a 200-year-old document, as if our nations founders had prophesied the development and proliferation of lethalBill of Rights. Maybe instead of jury-rigging legal arguments to stay in line with some constitutional precedent, we need to reconsider the Constitution itself. I acknowledge that mine is an audacious suggestion. To be clear, I fully appreciate the ingenuity of our founders creation and do not propose a complete overhaul. But the idea that the social, cultural and political environment in which our Constitution was created would yield solutions that remain eternally relevant in an increasingly complex and interconnected world is absurd. The Founders may have known stitutional amendments, and more radically, the formation of a constitutional convention to propose and enact multiple amendments at once. The need for such a convention and a comprehensive reformulation of a systemically problematic political system is inevitable. That may come two or two thousand years in the future, but in light of recent events, the conversation is warranted right now.

MARJORIE NUNEZAlligator Contributing WriterWhen it comes to e-readers, the consensus on owning a device is that its convenient. But convenience may not be enough to wipe out print books forever. According to a 2012 report from Bowker, a worldwide provider of bibliographic information, print books are here to stay despite the increase in popularity of ebook readers such as the Kindle, iPad and other tablets. The Bowker study showed that in America, 4 percent more women use ereaders than men. A study published from the Pew Research Center in 2012 showed that 72 per cent of American adults during the previous year had read a print book, compared with the 17 percent of adults who read ebooks. It also reported 81 percent of responders said they prefer to read print books with children. About 70 percent said they prefer to share physical books with other people. Although readers can hold their entire book collections on one device, Jan Fronk, owner of Book Gallery West, a new and used bookstore located in the Millhopper Shopping Center, said her customers still enjoy reading physical books. What people keep telling us is that they love the feel of having a book in their hands, Fronk said. Kristen Zych, a 22-year-old physics senior, said she bought a Nook Simple Touch so she could read A Feast for Crows, the fourth book in a seven-part series. At 1,104 pages, it weighs a pound. I didnt want to carry around this series of books, she said. Celina Rodriguez, a 20-year-old biology junior, said she bought a tablet to use for class. She uses it as an e-reader on long car rides because she can travel with a lot of books and no bulk. Though she reads on her tablet often, Rodriguez said she also enjoys reading print books, especially books by some of her favorite authors, J.K. Rowling and Chuck Palahniuk. You read books to not be on the computer, she said. I think print books will never go out of style. They have been here forever. Casey Robbins, a 24-year-old clerk at Book Gallery West, said she owns two ereaders but does not use them often. She only uses the devices for periodicals and books she can get for free. People that read both are way more prevalent than people who only read ebooks, Roberts said. Books will be here well into the future. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013Andrea Sarcos / Alligator LIFES TYLEE-readers may be popular, but print books are here to stay NATHALIE MCCRATEAlligator Contributing WriterKristopher McCullough hovered over a table crowded with Star and DVDs. Clad in a maroon and black Voyager uniform, the 35-year-old Subway employee recalled his 10th Star Trek item: a model of the Star ship Enterprise. Since then, his passion for the series has only grown. On Saturday, McCullough shared his collection with thousands of people at the 34th Annual Collectors Day at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Tiffany Ireland, education assistant for the museum, said about 1,500 people attended Saturdays event, where more than 60 hobbyists laid out their collections on tables. From chess sets to bonsai plants to brass toasting forks, each presenter had his or her own reasons for collecting. For John Puckett, collecting business cards is not only a hobby but a passion. The 65-year-old retired Lowes Home Improvement employee said he has been collecting cards since the mid-1960s. Pucketts extensive collection includes cards fashioned out of metal, wood, leather and plastic. He also has a blue-and-white Microsoft card from Bill Gates and a gold-embossed card from Donald Trump. Puckett said he likes to see how peoples minds work and how creative they can get with their card designs. Everyones trying to come up with a card that people wont throw away, he said. At one point, Puckett said, he had more than 1 million cards, which led him to downsize his collection to 400,000 cards. Puckett cautions aspiring collectors to be sure they are comfortable with the items they plan on collecting. Its like getting a tattoo, he said. Make sure you really want to collect it because youre going to be stuck with it. Some collections can start entirely on accident. One day at work, Pucketts wife, Cindy Puckett, 60, displayed a purple hippopotamus on her desk. Overzealous co-workers thought she collected hippos and began bringing her purple hippo pillows, bath toys, key chains and tape dispensers, John Puckett said. Now, its gone out of control, he said. Youll think you have everything purple hippo, but then another one will show up.Hobbyists show off personal collections at annual event JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Contributing WriterUFs College of Journalism and Comdebut a new masters program focused on social media. Spiro Kiousis, director of distance education at the journalism school, wrote in an email that factors such as industry demands, student desires for the subject and UFs strengths in digital communication and research went into the decision to start the program. The online program takes as little as 18 months to complete. It is aimed at working professionals, so that they can take what they learn and apply it to their current job. Recruitment for the inaugural class began earlier this month, Kiousis said. Applicants should have two years of relevant professional communications experience, a 3.0 undergraduate GPA and three letters of recommendation, among other requirements. Classes start this summer and last 12 weeks. Students can take up to three classes at a time, according to a program brochure. Students in the program can choose to gree in social media. Steve Johnson, who teaches social media reporting, said journalists could use social media to create content, or they could aggregate information about their audience.

The ant school relies on citizen science, a project where people all over the country collect data from their own backyard to send to experts for review. Andrea Lucky, head of the School of Ants and assistant research scientist in the UF Department of Entomology and Nematology, said about 1,000 samples have been sent to the school, which has helped monitor new species and see if they are expanding. Lucky said more than 100 people have gotten involved with the project. A lot of people have responded by getting interested in critters that live in and around their yards, she said. Some people have been responsible for discovering new ranges for problematic species. Since Lucky took a position at UF in Fall 2012, the original ant school, based at North Carolina State University, will now share its headquarters at UF. Its important to know that anyone can participate, Lucky said. Sampling ants involves placing Keebler Sandies Pecan Shortbread cookies traps outdoors in green spaces for an hour. After gathering data overnight, the kits can be mailed to UF for Ants website. To get involved with the School of Ants, people can visit www.schoolofants.org.

BROWZINE IS AVAILABLE AS A TRIAL UNTIL JAN. 31. EVAN WALKERAlligator Staff WriterUF is trying out a new iPad app, free to students, that could make academic research a far less cumbersome experience. BrowZine, available as a trial for all students and faculty until Jan. 31, lets its users browse, sort and save scholarly and peer-reviewed articles on the go. Once retrieved and saved, an article can be accessed without the need of an Internet connection. Depending on the feedback, well stick with the ser vice, said Denise Bennett, a librarian at the Marston Science Library. Anyone who has the app is given a link to the survey. It can be accessed directly at www.guides.uflib.ufl.edu/ browzine. BrowZine is sold only to institutions, and UF is one of about 20 colleges currently testing the service. Others have already become subscribers since its release in October, including Loyola University Chicago, Univer sity of Minnesota and Johns Hopkins University. So far, feedback has been positive, Bennett said. The trial period ends this month, after which it will be decided whether UF will become a subscriber. The service most favors people who are familiar with using scholarly articles on a regular basis. We cant really foresee undergrads getting much use out of it, Bennett said, only staff and research fellows, people who have spelow them. Such is the case for Fiona dent. The mobility would change how I can do research, if they have the right hefted the edge of the book on her Library West table and let it fall. Foley doesnt own an iPad, but there are plenty of the service. Kendall Bartsch, CEO of Third Iron, BrowZines developer, said there are cur rently more than 2,000 via the service, and thousands more will be added by the end of January. When rental iPads become available in Library West, Foley could be the one to install the app, as there are no explicit plans to preinstall the program on the Library West iPads. Whether renters can sync the saved articles on a shared device or even install it themselves is up in the air because the terms of the iPad rental agreement are still being determined, according to the Library West circulation desk. BrowZine is currently only available through the Bartsch said an Android version is in the works and slated for release by the end of March.

MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionWill Kenny Boynton break the Florida school record for most career points? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Gymnast Kytra Hunter won the individual all-around title during Floridas loss to LSU on Friday in Baton Rouge, La. See story, page 15. NO. 9 TENNESSEE WON 78-75. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Coach Amanda Butler had her team on the brink of upsetting No. 9 Tennessee on Sunday afternoon, a victory that would have represented arguably Floridas biggest win during her tenure. She then made her most critical mistake of the game in overtime. With less than half a minute remaining in the extra period and the score tied at 75, Butler instructed Carlie Needles to foul Tennessees Kamiko Williams, sending her to the free-throw line. Williams, a 64 percent free-throw shooter coming into the game, made 1 of 2, giving Tennessee a one-point advantage with 24 seconds remaining. Despite two chances in the waning seconds, Florida (13-5, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) could not score and its upset was thwarted in a 78-75 loss to the Volunteers on Sunday in the OConnell Center. It was one of those calculated risk sort of things, and it was a bad decision, Butler said after the game. Even though [Williams] only hit one, it still was a bad decision. She was one of their weaker free throw shooters, and sometimes, you just have a feeling. If I had it to do over again, Id trust our defense. Christin Mercer had the opportunity to offset Butlers miscue but missed two free throws with nine seconds remaining.

But with less than two minutes left player. After Kenny Boynton missed a three with 1:46 left in the half, Casey Prather jumped up to grab the offensive rebound, landed and barely beat the shot clock with his layup to put Florida up 25-20. Prather then hobbled down the court and hunched over to grab his left ankle when he got there. Prather struggled to get to the sideline during the timeout, until he was assisted Forward steps up for Gators amid injuries LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Kenny Boynton continues to shatter UF scoring records. Two games after breaking Lee Humphreys record for career three-pointers at Florida (290), Boynton surpassed Erving Walker and Udonis Haslem on Saturday for No. 3 on UFs all-time scoring list with 1,782 career points. The senior guards team-high 20 points propelled No. 11 Florida (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 74-52 victory against LSU in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge, La. After making a free throw at the 3:16 mark in the second half, Boynton passed Walker (1,777 points), his backcourt partner for three seasons at Florida. Then with 1:04 remaining, Boynton drilled a three-pointer to climb ahead of Haslem (1,781). Boynton now sits behind only Ronnie Williams (2,090) and Andrew Moten (1,930). In 35 minutes against the Tigers, Boynton scored 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting tempts. The senior guard also grabbed seven boards. Boynton has averaged 17.3 points in before the recent stretch, he averaged only 8.6 points on 25.5 percent shooting and a 12.5 percent clip from behind the arc. I put those games behind me, Boynton said. Beginning of the year, I think it was more mental than anything. Boynton sparked an undermanned Gators squad with 15 points in the second half. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario (left ankle) was inactive, and junior forward Casey Prather suffered an apparent high left ankle sprain at half after grabbing an offensive rebound for a putback layup. I thought it was a gutsy game for our guys, considering we have two older guys not playing in the game, coach Billy Donovan said. (We were) really relying on six road. Said Boynton: If I went down, Id trust that my team would do it without me. Its really an effort thing with us. During Floridas key 21-5 run, which put the Gators up 50-25 with 12:29 remaining, Boynton scored a layup and buried two three-pointers. His 5-of-7 clip in the second half helped minutes.

I just told those guys at halftime that Caseys not coming back in, coach Billy Donovan said. Were basically down to six guys right now. With the midgame blow to their frontcourt, the Gators needed someone to step up. Will Yeguete answered the call. Florida turned around a slow offensive away from home in SEC play thanks to Yeguetes game-high 13 rebounds. I thought we won the game based on our defense, Donovan said. I thought our defense, our ability to defend the three-point line and then our ability to rebound the ball were keys in the game for us. Yeguete led the team defensively by grabbing six boards.

This is just adding fuel to short twice against teams that we should have had different outcomes. UF entered Sunday with a 3-44 mark all-time against Tennessee (1-9 with Butler as coach), but was in position for win No. 4 against UT.

She has led UF in scoring in all four conference games, averaging 18.8 points per game during the stretch. Bonds had an opportunity to win the game in regulation but was unable to attempt a shot after losing her balance. We were supposed to have a quick screen, but we had a mix up or a misunderstanding, Bonds said. It is what it is. You end up going to overtime, and thats what you get. Butler, who has lost to Tennessee both as a coach and a player, missed on what could victory. Instead, it is simply another setback as Florida looks to continue moving forward toward greater legitimacy. Were growing; were on a journey, Butler said. Its a process, and this is a step in it. Its a painful process and a painful step in our process. Contact Phillip Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.

Meets between the Top-10 Southeastern Conference teams are traditionally close. Since 1995, less than half a point has decided 21 of the 36 UF-LSU meetings. Friday nights meet was no different. Heading into the balance beam exercise, Florida held a .25 advantage over its SEC rival. However, uncharacteristic missteps by Olympian Bridget Sloan and All-American Marissa King resulted in Florida using a of 48.775. sealed a win by a margin of 0.3 points. Tonight will be a very positive learning experience, coach Rhonda Faehn said. that LSU is a talented team and against any team in the SEC, especially on the road, you really up with two falls on beam that isnt going to get it done. Some things were absolutely amazing and some things were a little bit rough. Faehn is certain the loss will only strengthen an already deep and experienced team. [The loss is] something that is going to be a positive where individually where they have have to improve, Faehn said. But on an evening full of blemin. The sophomore standout pieced together an impressive early-season debut performance, recording scores of 9.9-plus in each of the four all-around events. scores of 9.950 and 9.900, respectively, earned the evenings allaround event title with a score of 39.675.

Caquatto won the beam title with a score of 9.95. Hunter was second with 9.9. Hunters sturdiness was on display from the get-go. She was competing with tremendous discipline and focus. Her vault, I couldve given it a 10 it was beautiful, Faehn said. Aside from the individual accolades, Hunter stressed the importance of refocusing. This has put a bad taste in our mouths and this is not the way we wanted to start our (SEC) season, Hunter said. But it is a stepping stone and it needs to be a step that we learn of the season.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013 Floridas 78-75 overtime loss to No. 9 Tennessee was a wasted opportunity. The Gators missed out on their biggest win since, well, the last time they beat the Volunteers in 2009. On a campus where the womens basketball program struggles to gain relevance and attention, a win against Tennessee would have meant the world. ond half was not enough. Neither was pushing a Top-10 juggernaut into overtime. Despite playing arguably its best game of the season, UF still lost. Folks enjoyed playing what if for a couthey stopped caring. It was fun while it lasted. Sundays crowd of 2,609 was an anomaly. Floridas 10 home games this season have averaged 1,055 spectators, which ranks next to last in the Southeastern Conference. The spotlight came and went. The Gators never had a chance to win. The Volunteers are just too good. Should facing just another SEC opponent be so daunting? No. Should Florida celebrate a moral victory after losing a close game to Tennessee? Hell, no. But in their current state, the Gators are stuck playing catch-up. Its hard to lead the pack with lackluster support. In 2011, Floridas expenses for womens basketball numbered $3,018,356, which ranked 29th nationally. Tennessee led the nation with expenses totaling $5,892,060. Logically speaking, the gap between the Gators and the Volunteers is not alarming. After all, the UT womens basketball program is a winning machine built by Pat Summitt, the greatest college basketball coach ever (Yeah, I said it. What are you going to do about it?). Meanwhile, womens basketball is the only sport at UF that has not won a conference championship. However, the main cause for concern is that Florida ranked ninth in womens basketball expenses among SEC teams in 2011. Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Auburn, Arkansas, LSU, Georgia and Kentucky all spend more than UF. This is not a cry for the University Athletic Association to pour more money into womens basketball, but what Florida puts into the team speaks volumes. How much does the administration care about the sport? When the Gators earned a bid in the 2011 Womens National Invitation Tournament, they played Florida Gulf Coast in Fort Myers. In a tournament where homecourt advantage is earned through a bidding process, how in the world did FGCU outspend UF? Seems ludicrous, right? Apathy is the most reasonable conclusion. Given Floridas resources and its all-around success in sports, the futility of the womens basketball program should be embarrassing. However, despite whatever the administrations attitude toward the womens basketball program may be, UF should still be better. Butler is the fastest coach to win 100 games in program history, but does seasons really warrant a contract extension? Butlers predecessor, Carolyn Peck, was ed for producing nearly the same resume? Anything other than March Madness should be considered a failure at UF. And no, the WNIT does not count as March Madness, so dont use that to champion Butlers cause. Other small sports are winning SEC and national championships, and Butler received an extension for sneaking into last seasons NCAA Tournament despite winning just four games against teams in the RPI Top 50. Floridas loss to Tennessee was painful, and there are multiple parties at fault. But as long as UF treats womens basketball as an afterthought and accepts middling with coming close.
