Pending approval from the Board of Trustees, an African-American studies major will start in Fall 2013. It was approved by UFs Faculty Senate on Thursday. The African-American Studies Program began its efforts to implement an AfricanAmerican studies major in 2010. The program will celebrate its 45th anniversary in the Fall, said Sharon D. Wright Austin, director of the program. She said this is the perfect time to have the major established because it would coincide with the programs anniversary. Establishing the major will cost the university nothing. The classes necessary for the major are present at UF under the minor, she said. The major would include classes in politics, philosophy, history and religion. Students would need 120 credit hours, including the 30 hours of African-American studies courses required. Students would also need to complete a research methods requirement and 15 credit hours of African-American studies courses at the 3000 level or higher. Austin said the faculty and students involved with the program feel that only having an African-American studies minor Well be able to use the major not only to educate students but to do more things to educate the broader community in Gainesville, she said. There is a great demand from students for the major, Austin said.

The former Gator and current New York Jets quarterback was scheduled to appear for the opening of a new $130 million campus for the First Baptist Church of Dallas on April 28. However, Tebows planned visit sparked public outcry that centered on the churchs pastor, the Rev. Robert Jeffress, and his views on homosexuality, AIDS and Judaism. Tebow made the announcement on his Facebook and Twitter pages to fans, saying he canceled the speaking arrangement due to new information that has been brought to my attention. The church also released a statement Thursday about Tebows decision, saying Jeffress was disappointed the quarterback was no longer speaking there. Mr. Tebow called Dr. Jeffress Wednesday evening saying that for personal and professional reasons he needed to avoid controversy at this time, but would like to come to First Baptist Dallas to speak at a future date, the statement said. The statement also defended Jeffress, saying his comments and views have been grossly misrepresented by the media. Since the initial announcement of Tebows visit Sunday, his supporters have been vocal about the speaking engagement.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 WOMEN WERE MORE EMOTIONAL. KAITLYN PEARSONAlligator Contributing WriterWomen and men tweet in different ways, and it might not be inherent. A recent study analyzed the different ways men and women are learning to communicate with each other on Twitter. Men and women tend to communicate differently in real life, said Bruce Floyd, UFs social media specialist. Im not surprised that there are gender differences [on Twitter]. Although age, race and class factor into the way people tweet, researchers took a nongender stance. The study found even though a the way people tweet, these patterns arent true for everyone. It concluded both genders use language thats more typical of the opposite sex. Users tweets are more likely to sound like their sex if they have a substantial amount of followers of the same sex. Diana Boxer, a professor in UFs Department of Linguistics, said women often show their emotions. The study found females use more emoticons and emotion-related terms, a conclusion with which UF journalism senior Danielle Bonilla agreed. I do see females using more of the faces, the 21-year-old said. Conversely, male Twitter users had fewer attachments to certain forms of expression, usten than female users, according to the study. Boxer said women generally use language to build relationships, and men use it to account for things. According to the study, swearing is most often associated with male Twitter users. Floyd said he can tell when he is tweeting to a male or female based on the conversation. said.Men and women have different Twitter habits, study says CAMPUS GABRIELA TAMARIZAlligator Contributing WriterMeet TED, a different format for conversation. Its a collection of innovative minds ready to inspire people to pursue their greatest passions, and its coming to Gainesville.

Devoted to ideas worth spreadwhich stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, values innovation and profession across science, art and technology.

Wolff and the TED Club at UF intend to shake the ground beneath our feet at the Phillips Center. The auditorium seats about 2,000, and the studio theater next to it holds about 150 people have already applied for the main auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

The Swamp Partys corruption, Part Iast night, the Swamp Party took the available UF Student Government seats by storm. Ive been a student at UF for almost four years, and Im beginning to notice something: the majority party is utterly corrupt. I will attempt to convince you of this. ity party. Before the Swamp Party was called the Swamp Party, it was called the Unite Party. That was only a year ago. Before the Unite Party was known by that name, it was called the Gator Party. Before the Gator Party was called that name, it was called the Swamp Party. And so, the cycle continues, the beast changing names every few years. The old parties are forgotten and disappear suddenly, without a trace. The new party emerges with similar leadership, similar tactics, and with similar fraternities and sororities supporting these parties. The biggest change is merely the branding. Now Ill address the peculiar pattern Ive noticed in the majoritys executive slate. The formula Ive noticed is a white Student Body presipanic or Asian vice president and treasurer. I dont think Im the only one to have noticed this. Maybe youve noticed it, too. dent, Anthony Reynolds, but the only reason he was president at all is the originally selected white president, Ben Meyers, stepped down for personal reasons. So, there are exceptions to the rule, but I dont think one should conclude that theres no general pattern. I have even heard those who show the most support to the majority party are the white fraternities and sororities, and many of the SG positions then end up going to people in those fraternities and sororities. This may seem like a silly qualm to some. If they supported Swamp more, then they should get more seats in SG, right? Wrong. Why should someones membership in a club be the determining factor when it comes to whether theyll do whats right for the students as a whole? I think this system of selecting candidates, the patronage sysrupt quite well. If that isnt enough to convince you theres corruption in the majority party, heres more. Three years ago, the minority party played a recording in the Senate chambers which showed the Greek organizations were, in fact, trying to force their members to vote, issuing penalties if members did not come back to the clubhouse with an I Voted sticker. One sorority even gave alcohol to those who did return with an I Voted sticker. Some students may not know this, but the SG boasts a budget of over $17.5 million. This budget is later handled by a Student Senate committee which appropriates the money. The minority party from a few years ago calculated that SG wasted $150,000 of student money in that year, according to the Fine Print. I wonder how much is being wasted this year. The University of Floridas Student Government has one of the largest Student Government budgets in the nation! is what the SG website says. Make no mistake in being optimistic: They are probably wasting our money, and theyre actually happy about it. Next week, I will write about why the Swamp Party is dangerous to anyone in SG who has an opposing point of view and why the minority groups should stay far away from the Swamp Party.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Sports fans need a name change. In late January, the National Basketball Association team in New Orleans announced a name change from Hornets to Pelicans. Im a fan of the change because Pelicans are scary birds. Sports fans, though? We also need to change our collective name to a bird. Im thinking instead of fans, we can call ourselves ostriches after the notion of burying our heads in the sand. it suspected nearly 700 soccer matches were posschemes. Ive seen but three pieces concerned over such a scandal: a New York Times story detailing the press release, a SportsCenter bit about the press release and a reaction piece by Brian Phillips on Grantland.com. Maybe its just because this is America, the land of the free and the home of the soccer-is-for-prissy-boys-and-girls-who-cant-handle-real-sportslike-football-baseball-basketball-and-hockey sentiment. Id be inclined to agree with that, but there is a small problem with that line of thought. Major League Soccer just passed the NBA and National Hockey League for third place in attendance rankings, which shows Americans are caring much more Thus, I am inclined to believe the reason there has not been much coverage for such an announcement, which went so far as to involve qualifying matches for the World Cup the greatest and most popular sporting event is because we dont want to know. This is a self-perpetuating cycle of circular reasoning. If we dont acknowledge there is a problem, then no action needs to be taken because there is no problem, which warrants istent problem ... see what I mean? At the risk of mirroring the Grantland piece, the reason we dont want to know a sports match is rigged is because sports serve as an idealistic escape from the world that beats us up and kicks us in the shins daily. theres no politicking and (most) rule-breaking is punished almost instantly. It is a simple concept: Team A and its players want to beat Team B and its players and vice-versa. Firings and hirings happen between games. Fines drama does not pervade the narrative of the game. All that matters is what the score is and how much time is left. Everything else gets sorted out afterward. affects the product, it is no longer a part of sports; marketer Matthew Shank. This puts it on par with any other source of entertainment, notably professional wrestling in which the match results are booked to fuel a dramatic narrative instead of two opponents competing against one another. Acting like there is no problem was part of why the economy collapsed. If soccer is relegated to that same destiny, everyone, not just sports fans, will be worse off because of it.

31-year-old digital strategist and UF alumnus, created a petition on change. org asking Tebow to not attend the churchs event. Perry said he believed Tebows appearance would alienate some of his fans. Basically, [Jeffress has] maligned almost every religion or group of people, Perry said. Hes said some pretty nasty things about folks, and I just think that by Tebow going to speak there, its just tacitly endorsing those beliefs. The petition has received about 800 signatures as of Thursday night. Perry said he was pleased with Tebows cancellation, saying he supported his tolerance and compassion. Members of the Gainesville LGBT ment. Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said Tebows decision to not speak at the church was a positive move. His recognition that its inappropriate to appear at a church with a virulently homophobic preacher is a huge step in the right direction, and we welcome that announcement, he said. Fleming added he supports Tebow using his media fame to be a witness to his faith and to be a model for tolerance. He recognizes that the First Baptist Church of Dallas does not represent that message, he said. 8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2013 Ryan Jones / AlligatorThe Watoto Childrens Choir sing and dance Thursday night at the Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, located at 630 NW Second St. LOCAL MICHELLE JACKSONAlligator Contributing WriterMondays are easy for Byron Jimmy. During the day, the 12-year-old does his school work, plays games and watches television. However, his evenings are spent singing, dancing and playing the drums in front of hundreds of people. Orphaned in Uganda as a child, Byron has spent the last seven months traveling down the eastern coast of the United States as part of the Watoto Childrens Choir. On Thursday night, he performed with 21 other children in front of a packed room at the Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, located at 630 NW Second St. crouching in the aisles and craning their necks to catch a glimpse of the children singing, dancing and talking about their experiences in the Watoto ministry. The Watoto Childrens Choir is the face of the larger ministry of Watoto, which provides homes for about 3,000 abandoned children and medicine to more than 2,000 HIV-positive women in Africa, said choir director Gideon Kizito, a 28-year-old from Kampala, Uganda. We have babies that we get from latrines, garbage trucks, hospitals and public places, he said. We give them the necessary care that they need to survive. The childrens choir started in 1994 as a way to spread awareness and raise support for the organization, Kizito said. The choir has performed in schools, businesses and churches on four continents as Queen Elizabeth II and President George W. Bush. Some of the children, whose ages range from 7 to 13, grew up raising their siblings on their own or as former child soldiers, Kizito said. This is a very different group of kids, he said. Because they have been through such a hard walk of life, we try to remind them that it is OK to act like a child. for Student Financial Affairs, attended Thursdays performance with her daughter. Cave, 45, said hearing the childrens stories was an important reminder of the blessings American children have. I told my daughter she was so blessed she could put her hand on food and clothes, she said. Its important to remember.African childrens choir performs for 500 at Gainesville churchAbout 800 signed a petition TEBOW, from page 1Next goal: a whole departmentcluded in the initial proposal. Khama Jamaal Weatherspoon, academic chair of UFs Progressive Black Men Inc. and vice president of UFs Black Political Science Association, was one of them. He said the major is necessary because it equates African-American studies to that of other history studies majors such as Jewish history. If we have studies of other cultures or whatnot, I think it would only be fair if we had one for African-American studies, said the 21-year-old UF political science senior. The major gives it recognition and potency. Weatherspoon said he would have chosen to major in African-American studies instead of political science if it was around when he was a freshman. The major will offer students a variety of career opportunities, Austin said. The program plans to hold a panel discussion in either March or April to inform students of the career opportunities available to them as African-American studies majors. Austin said students would have the ability to pursue careers in the government, anthropology, political science, politics, civil organizations. If the major is approved by all the boards, students can begin registering for it as early as March and begin taking classes in the Fall, she said. Austin said the programs next endeavor, once the major is approved, would be to establish a UF department of African-American studies. Right now, were just taking it one step at a time, trying to get the major in place, but at some point, we would like to have a department, she said. MAJOR, from page 1Austins

UF HAS ISSUED SEVEN LEADOFF WALKS. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterIn Floridas opening weekend series against Duke, Ryan Harris was Floridas most impressive pitcher. He threw all of his pitches for strikes, allowing only two hits in 4.2 scoreless innings across two appearances. Coach Kevin OSullivan was impressed with the sophomore reliever, but he did have one concern. He was really good on Friday and really good today, OSullivan said. He competed. He threw the ball with conviction. Other than the leadoff walk again. We score four and walk the leadoff man. As No. 17 Florida (3-2) prepares to face Florida Gulf Coast (2-1) in its second weekend series of the season, OSullivan hopes his pitching staff can reverse a trend of giving the oppositions leadoff batter a free pass. pitchers have walked the leadoff batter seven times. The opposing team has gone on to score two runs in the inning on three occasions. In the Gators 4-3 loss to Duke on Feb. 15, starter Jonathon Crawford walked Chris Marconcini on a full count to begin the fourth inning. On the next atbat, Duke took a 2-1 lead when Jordan Betts homered to left. In the eighth inning, sophomore left-hander Corey Stump relieved Harris and walked Jeff Kremer to begin the inning. Mike Rosenfeld drove Kremer in on a triple, and Rosenfeld scored later in the inning.

But February has quickly become just as disappointing. Despite erasing a double-digit half57 to Vanderbilt on Thursday night in the OConnell Center. The loss drops UF to 2-3 this month Very disappointed, coach Amanda Butler said. I can get my thesaurus out if you want me to, but frustrated really sums it up best, because there is a level of potential we are not reaching. Trailing 26-15 to open the second half, Florida (15-12, 4-9 Southeastern Conference) turned to Jennifer George to mount a comeback. Behind George, the teams only senior, the Gators went on a 15-4 run to take a 32-30 since suffering a dislocated right shoulder against LSU on Jan. 6. But Floridas early second-half run proved unsustainable. Vanderbilt responded with runs of 9-0 and 15-3 to game. UF blows second-half leadSOFTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterIn 123 at-bats, Katie Medina had never hit a home run. The sophomore shortstop went all of 2012 without knocking a ball out of the park. Her freshman year, she only batted .241 with six extra-base hits. But when Medina came up in the bottom of the second inning, she got ahold of a Molly Medeiros pitch and drilled it over It was awesome, Medina said. It was probably one of the greatest feelings Ive had in a while. Words cant even describe how it felt. The home run came immediately after nearly the same spot as Medina. The three runs that came on those two home runs gave No. 5 Florida (14-0) all it Marymount (3-3). Junior Hannah Rogers took the circle in Collegiate Classic in Palm Springs, Calif.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2013 David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior guard Kenny Boynton walks back to play defense after scoring during Floridas 69-52 victory against Kentucky on Feb. 12 in the OConnell Center. END OF GREGULATION During the past two seasons, the Gators have not played well in the clutch. Fortunately for them, clutch probably isnt real. Since the start of the 2011-12 season, Florida has run 11 offensive possessions while trailing by three or fewer points with less than 3 minutes to play. The Gators have scored just seven points, or .636 points per possession, in those scenarios. That number is terrible, but having a bad 11 possessions is like having a bad 7 minutes. It happens, and it doesnt mean anything about Floridas ability to perform in crunch time. Even the points per possession number is suspect. If the Gators make one more shot, theyre an average clutch team. If they make two more, people are writing about how theyre one of the most clutch teams in the country. When UF trailed Missouri by a point with 7 seconds left in Wednesdays game, Kenny Boynton was wrong to pull up for a three. Was the shot as bad as everyone is making it out to be? No, not at all. His hesitation dribble left his defender off balance, giving Boynton a clean look. A shot with 7 seconds left gives UF time to grab an offensive board, or an opportunity to foul and extend the game after a miss. When Missouri made a free throw to stretch its lead to three with 3.1 seconds remaining, Boynton made a great pass to get Mike Rosario an open look for the tie. But I guess theres no such thing as a clutch pass. In his four years at Florida, Boynton has been involved in a lot of clutch situations. Hes had 23 touches while the Gators were trailing by three or fewer points with 3 or fewer minutes to play. Hes hit 2 of 12 shots, scored nine points and grabbed an offensive rebound. He has zero turnovers in those situations. Are those great stats? No, not at all. But they amount to the equivalent of a bad game. Not something anyone should make sweeping judgments about. While the sample size is too small to be critical of the results, its almost never too small to be critical of the process. This year, UF has had six offensive possessions in which it needed a clutch play, and it has scored just three points. During those possessions, Scottie Wilbekin has taken three shots, Boynton has taken two and Mike Rosario has taken one. Fifteen of UFs 16 touches in those situations have been by that trio. Erik Murphy touched the ball once just long enough to give it up again. Patric Young has done nothing but screen. possessions in which they needed a clutch play. They scored four points, both putbacks by Young. In all, UF grabbed four offensive boards on those possessions food for thought for those who believe Boynton let go of that three too quickly. Guards dominated in 2011-12, taking 6 of UFs 9 clutch shot attempts and getting 14 of its 21 touches in clutch time. Maybe if they passed, Florida would be more clutch. During the 2009-11 seasons, UF was a little better in the clutch, scoring 33 points in 30 possessions for a 1.1 points per possession average. As you can see in the appendix on alligatorSports.org, the Gators passed the ball considerably more than they have in recent late game situations today. Of course, the result was mostly the same, with Boynton and Walker playing hero ball and taking 21 of the 30 shots. But in those instances it worked, which will sometimes happen when youre dealing with a 30-shot sample. Theres a lot of variation way clutch a player or team is. The UF teams that won back-to-back titles in 2005-07 scored one point per clutch possession, with totals of 34 points on 34 possessions that are similar to, but just a step below, the 2009-11 squads. So, the UF teams that won it all in consecutive seasons were actually less clutch than the 2009-11 group, which was twice bounced from the NCAA Tournament after coming up short in close games. Either that, or maybe clutch isnt real. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator. org. most clutch teams in the country. Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca

LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterCoach Billy Donovan wants his players to take open shots, regardless of whether their attempts are inside or beyond the arc. But Donovan said the Gators were too reliant on three-pointers in Floridas 63-60 road loss to Missouri on Tuesday night. Florida attempted 33 of its 54 shots from three-point range, draining only 10. The Gators could not establish a post presence against the Tigers. Instead, Florida took a season-high 61.1 percent of its attempts from beyond the arc. We took too many threes, Donovan said. I didnt think we had good enough balance. When weve attacked the paint, whether its the pass or the post up or a drive, our offense is a lot better. And I thought we had too many possessions where we didnt really look to do that enough. Florida went 1 of 7 from three as Mizzou stormed back from a Forward Erik Murphy and guard Kenny Boynton each went 2 of 9 from beyond the threepoint line. tempts, Murphy and center Patric Young combined for four points on 2-of-6 shooting. Missouri outscored Florida 2416 in the paint. We tried to move the ball around, tried to get the open shots, but I think we did a little too much of staying on the perimeter, guard Scottie Wilbekin said. We didnt attack as much as we shouldve or get the ball in the post. Florida was similarly unbalanced on offense in its 80-69 loss to Arkansas on Feb. 5, taking 27 of its 56 shots from beyond the arc. No. 5 Florida (21-4, 11-2 Southeastern Conference) will host Ar kansas on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the OConnell Center. The Razorbacks (16-9, 7-5 SEC) are 15-1 at home but 2-8 on the road and at neutral sites. They have won four of their victory against Missouri on Saturday in Bud Walton Arena and a 62-60 win against Georgia on Thursday night in Fayetteville. Unlike Florida, Arkansas has maintained a balanced approach between both teams. Theyre playing better, Donovan said. We dont look a whole lot at if youre playing here at home or on the road. Sometimes people look at trends, but trends arent guaranteed or something thats always going to happen. If you look at them, the one thing you want to look at is that theyve progressed. Despite losing to the Razor backs earlier in the month, the Gators will not approach Satur day nights matchup with a vindictive mindset. They are done dwelling on the Feb. 5 loss. I have never been a big believer in payback. What do you get back? Donovan said. Its not like if we all of a sudden win the game, (and) we get the Fayetteville game back. It doesnt work like that. That game is a loss. This is the next most important thing. Yeguete ahead of schedule: Junior forward Will Yeguete could return as soon as Floridas March 6 game against Vanderbilt, Donovan said Thursday. The contest in home date this season. Since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 8 to remove bone chips in his right knee, Yeguete has missed four games. Team doctors originally set the timetable for his return at 4-6 weeks. Yeguete has begun to participate in light running drills dur ing practice. Hes moving quicker than I think the doctors thought, Donovan said. Its going to be totally up to them. 16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2013 David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior guard Scottie Wilbekin attempts a layup during Floridas 69-52 win against Kentucky on Feb. 12 in the OConnell Center.
