If Florida House of Representatives House Bill 49 becomes law, it would outlaw the sale of various smoking instruments including glass pipes and long glass water pipes also known as bongs statewide. So far, the bill passed through the Criminal Justice Subcommittee as well as the Business and Professional Regulation Subcommittee. The Houses Justice Appropriations Subcommittee also reviewed the bill Tuesday morning. The bills Senate counterpart, Senate Bill 1140, has moved through the Criminal Justice Committee and, most recently, the Appropriations Subcommittee on Civil and Criminal Justice on Thursday morning.

Fast forward 40 years, and hes pulled off arguably the biggest hoax college sports has ever seen. During the widespread formation of AllAmerican teams, Noll and three friends invented a team, naming the top 15 rookie players in the nation under a made-up organization, the National Association of Collegiate Basketball Writers. Noll said they did it to tweak the nose of people in power. to the chosen players from his parents home in Garden City, N.Y., for big-city name Andrew G. Miller, the supposed secretary of the organization. Under this name, he also contacted the Associated Press with news of the new team, which caused it to spread to newspapers across the country. in honor of the associations made-up founder, Leo G. Hershberger, Noll said. But the creation of the team was no joke. They spent hours sorting through newspapers in the library to pick the 15 players. Noll said We wanted it to be a legitimate team, he said. Not just a bunch of jokers. The association received several letters from players schools thanking them.

TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Students for a Democratic Society and UF Libertarians are cohosting an anti-drone week of action to raise awareness about what they believe to be UFs involvement in military drone research. UFs engineering programs, in particular, get a lot of funding from defense contractors from the U.S. government to pay professors to do research in drones, said Kelly Barber, a 21-year-old history senior and vice president of the UF Libertarians. The week of events will include painting the 34th Street Wall, a public reading of the names of those who died in drone strikes, tabling and a protest outside of Tigert Hall, said Conor Munro, a 21-year-old history and economics junior and lead organizer for SDS. Peter Ifju, a UF mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, gets funding from the U.S. military to research unmanned aerial vehicles for investigating wildlife refuges owned by UF. Any technology, whether its drones, doing research on materials for instance, ceramics or metals virtually anything could be used for military purposes, he said. So this, just like any other technology, could be used for military purposes. No question about that. UF is one of 81 public entities authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration to use drones, according to a list released by the FAA in 2012. These drones are equipped with high resolution cameras to do research in uninhabited areas and remote wildlife sanctuaries. UF is not pus, Ifju said. Military drones were thrust into the national spotlight when the Obama administration increased the use of drone strikes against enemy combatants. UF Libertarians and SDS hope to seek answers about the universitys involvement with the U.S. military drone program, Munro said. We want to demilitarize UF, he said.

Ca AMPUsSUF groups to host anti-drone events MICHELLE JACKSONAlligator Contributing WriterMargaret Thatcher, who was the prime minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990, died of a stroke Monday. She was 87. The Iron Ladys former speechwriter John OSullivan was coincidentally in Gainesville, and he spoke world history at the Paramount Plaza Hotel & Suites, located at 2900 SW 13th St. Weve lost today one of the greatest peacetime prime ministers in history and one of the two or three greatest English women who ever lived, he said. OSullivan said Thatcher was instrumental in ending the Cold War peacefully and reviving the British spirit and economy. When Thatcher was had made the country seem ungovernable, OSullivan said. However, Thatcher pursued policies that strengthened the economy and allowed for the growth of enterprise that characterized the 1980s. OSullivan credited Thatcher not only for her hard work and success, but also for her ability to foresee problems in the future. 1990, OSullivan said, she expressed her concerns about Europe moving to a universal currency. If they had followed her advice, Europe would not be in the terrible mess that its currently in, he said. OSullivan spoke before about 50 members of the Florida Free Speech Forum. Florida Free Speech Forum President Nath Doughtie said he was glad they were able to hear OSullivan speak. I thought with his reminisces and everything about somebody that important ... he gave a really special insight that you dont always get in a small town like Gainesville, he said. Charna Cohn, a member of the forum, said she enjoyed OSullivans speech because it offered a different perspective on European politics. I think that the credit for remaining strong in [Thatchers] principles was a good takeaway lesson, she said.

Newberry Road, held its grand reopening Saturday after two LOCa AL HANNA MARCUSAlligator Contributing WriterThe doors of a redesigned Sports Authority in northwest Gainesville swung open Saturday after two months of remodeling. The store, located at 7400 W. Newberry Road, features a new layout with specialty sport shops, tures. Saturdays grand reopening of the 42,000-square-foot store was complete with prizes and a guest appearance from Matt Elam, a former UF Gators safety. Ben Repp, co-manager of the store, estimated more than 500 people attended the opening. I think the crowd response was very good, he said. We had activities in the store, we gave out gift cards every hour, gave away a signed Tim Tebow football and handed out a $500 shopping spree. The main goal of remodeling the plan to have more space for customers and products, Repp said. The new layout includes specialty sports shops within the store, including an area for primarily UF apparel. Theres more space and it draws people to these areas, so its a nice big assortment of everything you need, Repp said. Patty Jimenez, a company spokeswoman, said customers can ence because of the new layout. It makes it easier because it enhances customer service within the store, she said.

Do it like a lady: drag queens and fansWell, spring has rolled around again, and for me, that means only one thing: I get to see colorfully dressed man-ladies strut their stuff up and down the catwalk in the Reitz Union Ballroom. UF Pride Awareness Months drag show is Wednesday, hosted in honor of Pride Awareness Month for the LGBT community. This might win understatement of the year because what better way to make someone aware of pride culture than with 6-foot men in gowns, 7-inch heels and hairdos to the roof? Try letting that go unnoticed on your radar. Headliners for the show are former contestants from RuPauls Drag Race, which is a TV show that stormed in with padded hips sashaying and wigs a-blowing and stole my heart. Hosted by the fabulous RuPaul, the show selects drag queens to compete for the title of Americas next drag superstar, and each week, the contestants have to compete in challenges and walk the runway in gloriously over-thetop costumes. Its just like Americas Next Top Model, but better in every single way. It takes all the fun of reality competition shows and ramps up the camp factor by a thousand. I thoroughly applaud whatever producer in Los Angeles got behind this idea. From what I have noticed, most of RuPauls fans are women and people within the LGBT community, which I Why would women, most of whom arent gay, really enjoy watching a show about drag queens? Whats the appeal? Drag queens are men who looked at the world of womanhood and got to pick and choose which parts they wanted to keep. Glamorous ball gowns and slinky mini dresses? Check. Sky-high heels? Double check. Dramatic hair and makeup? Nailed it. Catty back talk and sassy put-downs but also shared feelings of sisterhood? Of course. These men live out this dressed-to-the-nines fantasy not just in clubs or on girls nights out, but every single weekday for a living. What girl wouldnt be a little jealous of that? It would be like prom night and karaoke at the club rolled together, and you could get paid for it. As a girl who wobbles in heels, is inept in makeup and owns a severely limited wardrobe of Tshirts, I watch these queens with mixed feelings of awe, admiration and inferiority because they look like they are having more fun as gals during a two-hour show than I have on a daily basis of being one. Drag queens, for me, always remind me of a quote from in the Peking Opera, are womens roles played by men? Because only a man knows how a woman is supposed to act. It hits a paradox where most women wish their lives looked a little bit more like the lives men have impersonating them. Watching RuPaul, Im looking at women through the perspective of men trying to be women, and at some point, I am not sure which one is looking to the other for inspiration. Drag queens look to women as the models and inspiration for their work, and women look to drag queens as hope that a life that fabulous and glittery can exist in the real world. Sometimes drag gets criticized for perpetuating exaggerated stereotypes about women, the LGBT community and especially transgendered women, but I think drag teaches women and the LGBT community some important lessons. Mainly, remember to not always take yourself so seriously, but to always be proud of who you are and what you ing it. As the always lovely RuPaul once said, We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag. Amen. Enjoy the show tomorrow. Lauren Flannery is a business administration sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Tuesdays.Fats of Life: Stop snacking while watching TV showsHave you ever sat in front of the TV and not paid attention to what was happening on the screen? Thats apparently healthier for you than the alternative: caring. There is something unique about television and something unique about being engaged with television, said lead researcher David Bickham, a research scientist at the Center on Media and Child Health at Childrens Hospital Boston, according to a US News article. The amount of attention that young people pay to television is a key link between media use and issues with weight, continued Bickham, who also is an instructor in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. All screen time is not the same, said Dr. Michael Rich of Childrens Hospitals Center for Media and Child Health, according to a report by the Boston Herald. With video games and the computer, your hands are busy, theres less advertising.... TV sets up an environment where food consumption is advertising is almost never for broccoli. This is why snack food companies do so well, because those types of food go so well with watching TV for hours. They go even better with shows that you are actively excited to watch. Think about it. People have entire watch parties for TV shows, complete with a whole spread of themed foods and snacks. Even simpler than that, though, is just sitting down with a meal to watch TV. Its connected in our brains to be fed while were entertained. (Looking at you, sports stadiums.) So even when we dont have an actual meal to eat at a normal meal hour, its still natural for us to grab something to just munch on in order to pass the time. If youre engaged with the TV, youre not paying attention to the food youre eating, or the cues that your body is giving, said Bickham, according to the report from the Boston Herald. This is a problem thats both on us, as humans and as consumers, and the advertisers who constantly shove unhealthy foods in front of our faces. We do think there has been certain strides made lately in advertising products that are better for your health, but most of us probably ignore them. Doesnt healthy give you a mental image of it tastes bad, so I hate it? Thats because advertising companies know its way easier to sell us the good-tasting, terrible-for-you products. Were dumb and impressionable, and we like to eat any kind of snack possible. Who knew caring about a TV show, however, was also going to be a part of our downfall? This study ... suggests that TV is the particular culprit. Further, just having a TV on in the background isnt the problem the problem is actually watching the TV, said Dr. David Katz, director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center, according to the article by US News. The study these scientists are referring to was taken from data of 13to 15-year-olds, so the damage has already been done to our hopeless bodies. Lauren Flanneryopinions@alligator.org

TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Supreme Court should stand on the right side of historyLast week, the Supreme Court heard arguments on two marriage equality laws: the Defense of Marriage Act and Californias Proposition 8. Decisions will not be released for several weeks, but the cases show the direction our country is heading. ing marriage equality, and President Obama is In addition, Ted Olson, a conservative legal icon, was the principal attorney that argued against the marriage equality ban in California. Meanwhile, public opinion on the issue has changed rapidly since California passed Proposition 8. Support for marriage equality is at a high. In the 18 to 32 age bracket, it is now 70 percent up from 51 percent 10 years ago. Nine states now allow same-sex couples to marry, and several others have pending measures. Of Democrats in the Senate, only six have not declared support for marriage equality. The momentum is heading in one direction, and the issue strikes at the core tions history. Marriage equality will happen in the United States, and sooner rather than later. Throughout the centuries, we have fought to expand rights for people regardless of the color of their skin, which God they pray to or their gender, and now they love as well. This is the civil rights issue of our time. Whether the Supreme Court stands on the right side of history or whether it stands in its way is a decision that we eagerly await. If the court declines to take up this historic moment, it risks being left on the sidelines as Americans do what we have done for centuries: utilize democratic means to create a more inclusive society and hence a more perfect union. Alessandro Bordoli UF alumnus, Class of 2012Letter to the EditorAll sorts of things pop into ones mind when the words BDSM, slave, master, masochist and sadist are thrown around. Throughout the last 20 years or so, perceptions of BDSM have changed in mainstream consciousness, arguably for the better. However, as with most mainstream perceptions, the publics view of BDSM is distilled down to stereotypes and the simplest icons to make consumption a quick affair. This has allowed BDSM out of the closet and allowed it to be considered among normal sexual activities, no longer just the dark and deviant. The problem with mainstreaming BDSM is it not only leaves out much of the intricacies of its power-play relationships but, in many cases, it tries to mold it into normative sexuality. I am holding out hope that this too shall pass, and BDSM will be considered on its own merit without having to wrap it back up in something the vanillas can feel good about. Think about it: Rihannas song S&M, Shades of Grey, Weeks, Secretary, Exit to Eden, countless references in primetime shows such as Law and Order, CSI, Family Guy, etc. all make mention of BDSM practices. Go ahead and laugh I do, a lot. But when you are done, take another look at what those high-exposure, spotlight-bright-as-the-sun media darlings say about the BDSM culture and the people within it. When was the last time you smirked while watching a popular show because a wit of kink was introduced a of those references? For the most part, I dont. But I still enjoy them, and, by all means, you should, too. Of course, I also urge you to consider researching alternative lifestyles. It may sound simple to just say stereotypes dont cover such a complex portion of human sexuality, and many may be wrong. On an intellectual level, most of us know this, but we are still victims of allowing stereotypes to invade our minds. When we are asked what a dominatrix is, dont most of us think of the leather-clad, spike heel-wearing, whipcracking, stern Queen Bitch who commands with a snarl you lick her boots? Really? Although that is one persona in the BDSM world, it is certainly not mine. How about the perceptions of a Master or Dom? The most common image is of a powerful male sexually and physically exerting complete control over the will and body of a submissive female. For the most part, this rings true. But it leaves out the how and why of it. Also, many people believe the dominance is founded on violence, power and sexual inequalities, and the female is subjugated as no more than a vessel of pleasure for the dominant man. In most BDSM relationships, mine included, this is a far cry from the truth and, most important, what does this say about the woman? What about the man? There are many misperceptions concerning BDSM and relationships. I cannot speak to all of them, but I can shine some light on the ones I am most intimately acquainted with. To start, yes, you can have a healthy, loving relationship while causing and receiving pain. Yes, you can submit your body and will to another and not only enjoy it but remain your own person as well. Just because pain gives you pleasure, does not mean you like all pain stubbing your toe still hurts. Not all Dom men want to abuse women. Not all female Dommes are scornful bitches. Not all submissive women are weak, meek and easy to abuse. Not all submissive men are gay. You dont have to choose one role at all. You can like to give and receive pain with both sexes, like I do. If this sounds trite, well, then good, because its meant to. Most people who live this lifestyle consider this arbitrary, but you know what? We remind everyone about it because we know better than most people what public misconceptions can do. Sadism and masochism are listed as mental diseases, and although its not common practice to lock us up anymore, the fact that it is still listed is enough to cause worry. So really, love it up, spank each other, tie each other up, invite more than just two at a time to play as long as it is all about loving and, most important, its consensual. Just look around; I know plenty of places to get your freak on many in our friendly local community. Open your eyes, open your mind and prepare to not be surprised at all but to discover another side to yourself and your community you already knew was there. If nothing else, you will have more to smirk about the next time you catch a BDSM reference on a mainstream show.

The Alachua County Black Democratic Caucus hosted the forum at the Alachua County Administration Building. About 30 people attended, but Mayor Craig Lowe was absent. Lowe couldnt participate because of a fundraising event scheduled before Mondays forum was announced, said Lowes campaign manager Nick Mildebrath. Lowe also missed the Feb. 11 Democratic Black Caucus debate because of a family emergency. Its amazing to me that you have a mayor that wants to run this city and he disrespects all of the African-Americans and other voters that we represent, said forum comoderator Charles Goston. Without an opponent in the debate, Braddy answered questions from Goston about transportation, the biomass plant and leadership. Braddy said he believes a proposed lane reduction on Northwest Eighth Avenue is a bad idea. He also discussed his support for the city to back out of its current biomass contract with Gainesville Renewable Energy Center. Regarding his leadership style, Braddy said he would allow residents more time to voice their concerns at City Commission meetings. I believe strongly in our representative system of government, he said. You have to make sure the people are in charge of the government. Goston said Lowes second absence at the Democratic Black Caucus could hurt his campaign. Tonight was the opportunity to let black voters know that we can no longer allow this 2 percent ... to control and select the people that represent us, he said. today at Oaks Hammock, located at 5100 SW 25th Blvd. Mildebrath said Lowe absent at second forum in runoff election for mayor ELLY AYRESAlligator Contributing WriterLilly Pulitzer Rousseau, the famed fashion icon who used a juice stand uniform to start her Floridian fashion empire in the early 1960s, died Sunday in West Palm Beach. She was 81. Pulitzers line includes dresses, shoes and jewelry. Her line is popular among college women, especially at UF. Gracie Carryl, an 18-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences freshman, remembers meeting Pulitzer in She said she will remember Pulitzer for her kindness and generosity. She was such a genuine person, Carryl said. Its sad to see such a legend go, but she probably lived one of the best lives of anyone. Susan Hines, owner of The Colorful Gator, 13005 SW First Road in Newberry, which offers Pulitzers line, said she was sad to hear of the icons passing but knows the company will keep her spirit alive. The one thing we love about Lilly is the slogan, Lead a colorful life, Hines said. Bright colors make people happy, and we love that she was a pioneer. Lauren Gonzalez, a 22-year-old UF journalism senior and former sales associate and social media manager at The Colorful Gator, said Pulitzers legacy is more than a clothing label. I think its gotten a reputation for being childlike, colorful and very Palm Beach, but I think theres a lot more to it than life and not taking yourself too seriously. Pulitzers transition from a couple of juice-stained dresses to a self-titled clothing line inspired Gonzalez to pursue a career in fashion. I think shes a great role model for women and any designer who wants to be an entrepreneur and start a business, she said.Colorful life of Lilly Pulitzer rememberedINTERNATIONAL ELENI KOUVATSOSAlligator Contributing WriterA UF alumna living in South Korea said she feels safe despite North Koreas recent threats of nuclear war. After graduating from UF last Spring with a degree in art history and a minor in classics, Carolina Chavez decided to teach English in South Korea. However, after living in the country for almost a year, Chavez, 22, said life in South Korea after the recent threats is normal. Were obviously cautious, but the country is not in a state of emergency, she wrote in an email. Chavez said she registered with the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, so she will be informed of any evacuation plans or safety concerns. However, she said she feels the threats are attempts by North Koprove himself to his country. Zachary Selden, a UF assistant professor of political science, agreed, saying the threats are more dangerous than before because North Korea is refusing to recogended the Korean War in the 1950s. This is probably one of the least transparent regimes on Earth, he said. Its very hard to understand what goes on inside North Korea. be trying to test South Koreas new minister. He added the most important thing for the U.S. to do is to demonstrate to its allies in Asia that its commitment to them is real and to and American citizens like Chavez safe. Thats why were bolstering our presence in South Korea, he said. Its a way of telling South back. looming, Chavez said she will continue living and working in South Korea.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 just ask John Brantley. But on a team that lost talent across the board, Sturgis could prove to be near the top of the list in terms of the Gators biggest loss. Junior quarterback Jeff Driskel made a salient point on Saturday. While speaking about Floridas offense, he talked about how it is hard to just put drives together consistently and about the necessity to develop an offense with quick-strike capabilities. He is correct. Connecting on throws plays makes scoring much easier. Last years team did not have that capability. It remains to be seen if this squad does. But Sturgis showed his true value when Floridas offense became stagnant and stalled. That is when he did his job better than anyone else in the country. Sturgis was 3 for 3 on attempts from 50 yards or longer last season. He was 24 of 28 overall. Floridas approach to winning games en route to a Sugar Bowl appearance was strong defense, great special teams and an offense that grinded out just enough points to win. I dont foresee that plan changing much next season. But if Phillips or Hardin or even walk-on Frank Velez, who was apparently thrown into the mix during spring cant become consistent enough to continue the plan, the entire team will suffer. Then Muschamp wont be the only one experiencing nightmares. Contact Phil Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.David Carr/ Alligator StaffKicker Caleb Sturgis (19) celebrates with former special teams and current defensive coordinator DJ Durkin during Floridas 37-26 win against Florida State on Nov. 24 in Tallahassee. sSOFTBaALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer Hall of Fame baseball manager Earl Weavers philosophy for winning was pitching, defense and the three-run homer. Against Mississippi State this weekend, Florida followed the same strategy. The No. 3 Gators (38-4, 12-3 Southeastern games, constituting 16 of Floridas 18 runs. Ive been coaching for a long time, and thats our style, coach Tim Walton said. But that style showed its faults in the Gators 6-5 loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday. After falling behind early, Florida scramThe Gators drew a walk and hit two singles to load the bases for catcher Taylore Fuller, who But after Fullers home run, UF struggled to get hits in key situations. Alison Owen came in to pitch for MSU after the second inning and shut down Floridas offense. Throughout the season, UF has relied on walks to get rallies started. But Owen showcased her control, walking only one batter. Without the luxury of free passes, Floridas offense struggled. The only hit a Florida batter managed off Owen was a solo home run by senior Kelsey Horton. I dont think we really had the opportunity to play a whole lot of small ball, Walton said. The Gators currently lead the SEC in walks but rank 10th in batting average. They are third in home runs. But on Sunday, Florida could not hit its way back into the lead. Floridas home-run hitting was consistent against MSU. UF hit two homers on Friday, one on Saturday and two on Sunday. The difference was the number of runners on base. On Friday, the Gators hit two singles before Horton hit a three-run homer. Florida then reloaded the bases with three walks before Stephanie Tofft hit a grand slam. UF scored all of its Saturday runs on a Jessica Damico grand slam. grand slam, the Gators could not get runners on base, and Hortons second homer of the series came with the bases empty. My players buy into the fact that we get 21 outs; how we choose to use those 21 outs is up to us, Walton said.

LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Center Patric Young will return to Florida for his senior season in 2013-14, the team announced Monday. After saying he needed to discuss his decision with his family following UFs Elite Eight loss to Michigan on March 31, Young chose not to leave school for the NBA. degree and play another season for coach (Billy) Donovan with great teammates and friends at a place I love, Young said in a release. lieve it is my senior year already. I have gotten better as a player and better as a man at the University of Florida. I believe God has my future in his hands, so all I am worried about now is getting better this summer and making it the hardest I have trained in my life. Before Monday, many mock draft websites projected Young as a second-round pick. DraftExpress.com listed the 6-foot-9, 249-pound Young as the 38th player on the board. NBADraft. net had him at No. 53. This was Patrics decision to make, Donovan said in a release. He ultimately had to do what he felt was best for himself and his future. Youngs return bolsters Floridas frontcourt in 2013-14. The Gators add 6-foot-9 forward Damontre Harris once South Carolinas starting center is eligible to play next season after sitting out the 2012-13 campaign per NCAA transfer rules. Dorian Finney-Smith, a 6-foot-8 forward who transferred to Florida after one season at Virginia Tech in 2011-12, will also join the Gators frontcourt next season. Forwards Will Yeguete and Casey Prather, who combined for 9.5 rebounds per game off the bench in 2012-13, also return for their senior seasons. Young is just 122 points shy of becoming the 50th Gator to reach 1,000 career points. Throughout his junior year, Young was a reliable scorer but an inconsistent rebounder. He averaged 10.1 points and 6.3 rebounds but did not post consecutive games with at least 10 boards. Young shot 58.6 percent from the team of players with at least 10 shots. But his free-throw percentage dropped to 48.9 percent last season 10.4 percentage points lower than his 2011-12 mark. Young age among Gators who attempted at least 30 free throws. He improved as a shot blocker, averaging 1.6 blocks twice as many as he collected as a sophomore. His 34 steals were tied for third-best on the squad. Young recorded 16 points and nine rebounds in UFs secondround victory against Northwestern State but then struggled during the remainder of the NCAA Tournament. Young averaged 5.7 points on 35.3 percent shooting and 6.3 boards. He made only 9 of 20 free-throw attempts during the Big Dance.

RJ SCHAFFER Alligator Writer No T.J. Vogel, no problem. The Gators mens golf team put this spring in the Gary Koch Invitational, despite Vogels absence.

One appearance came as an individual, but he was able to keep Florida buoyed by not shooting over par. Freshman Eric Banks continued his strong spring season after shoot a 70 (-2) in the second round and tie for 25th. Banks has been the biggest surUF golf shines in seniors absence Young staying for senior season at FloridaPHILIBUSTER Finding a capable replacement for Caleb Sturgis is a thought that surely gives Will Muschamp headaches. Heck, it might even give him nightmares at this point, and the season is still more than four months away. Muschamp joked near the end of last season that Florida was looking for an extra year of eligibility for the redshirt senior kicker. Gone is the two-time Lou Groza Award kicker. Gone is the nearly automatic right leg that took the pressure off of Floridas underperforming offense by essentially guaranteeing three points if the Gators could at least advance past inside the oppositions 40-yard line. Gone is the programs all-time made. But more important than what is gone is what is returning for the Gators in the kicking department next season. And if Saturdays performances during the Orange and Blue Debut are any indication, the cupboard is pretty bare. Neither senior Brad Phillips nor redshirt freshman Austin Hardin was particularly impressive during drills or at the end were kept, but simply watching was more than enough for me. Kicks missed left. Kicks missed right. One kick resembled a clay pigeon shot out of the sky at a shooting range, slamming into the left upright and bouncing away. Floridas offense again looked average. The kicking game was a mess. And from statements made by coaches and players, it is clear this was not a oneday outlier. Rather, inconsistency from the two kickers has become the norm. Im not going to lie, were missing Sturgis right now, punter Kyle Christy said not because of lack of effort. Of course it isnt. Nobody wants to struggle when replacing a program legend, Losing kicker a major blow to Gators offenseSEE PHIL, PAGE 14 SEE GOLF, PAGE 14 [Patric Young] ultimately had to do what he felt was best for himself and his future.Billy DonovanUF coach Losing kicker a major blow to Gators offense Phil Heilmantwitter: @phillip_heilman

Think of that kid trying to make a full revolution on a swing at the playground. They gain enough momentum to reach the apex the point of no return where they either swing all the way around or fall back down to square one. Florida has been stuck at square one. Tonights matchup in Tallahassee at 6 features two teams in the midst of two very different seasons. The No. 7 Seminoles (27-5) are continuing their ascension with a veteran starting rotation. The Gators (15-18) are struggling to keep their heads above water with a collection of young talent. Yet, three games under .500 doesnt do the Gators justice. NFL Hall of Famer Bill Parcells said, You are what your record says you are. ESPN has a show nobody watches called Numbers Never Lie. The numbers dont tell the story for Florida. the Gators have drowned in their own blunders. Six losses stand out. Florida lost to Georgia Southern 8-7 in extra innings on Feb. 20, Florida Gulf Coast 7-4 on Feb. 24 in extra innings, North Florida 7-6 on Feb. 26 in 10 innings and Ole Miss 4-3 on March 29 in 11 frames. The Gators dropped en innings on March 24 while losing to Florida State 2-1 late on March 26. All these games shouldve ended with the wondering what went wrong. Florida suffered a six-game losing streak earlier in the year that catcher Taylor Gushue called the Gators lowest point this season. Since dropping its sixth straight contest on March 1 dropping UF to 3-7 Florida is 12-11. The Gators losses to the Rebels, the Commodores and the Seminoles mirrored those during their six-game losing streak. If Florida could eliminate its issues in close contests, reaching the NCAA Regional again this year is a real possibility. But an inconsistent season is expected from this ravaged roster. For three years, Florida squads ever. Five players from the 2012 team spent time in Major League spring training. Left-hander the 2012 MLB Draft to reach the majors. Hes pitched two scoreless innings for the Dodgers this year. Catcher Mike Zunino has a .417 averThe Gators of yesteryear were really good. Take into account key signees never reaching school, and its clear why Florida isnt Florida this year. A down year comes with a mass exodus to The Show. This team is growing, albeit slowly. Freshman shortstop Richie Martin looks like a budding star up the middle. Ill take a Casey Turgeon any day. Gushue at catcher although he needs work defensively is carrying Floridas offense. Doubles machine Justin Shafer has been a consistent run producer. Floridas pitching has improved since several early-season hiccups. Its time to see the silver lining. I described Florida on Feb. 27 as a talented team yet to this year. Is the 2013 season disappointing? Yeah. But in an adverse season riddled with injuries and departures, these young guns are giving a glimpse of a bright future.

TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Students for a Democratic Society and UF Libertarians are cohosting an anti-drone week of action to raise awareness about what they believe to be UFs involvement in military drone research. UFs engineering programs, in particular, get a lot of funding from defense contractors from the U.S. government to pay professors to do research in drones, said Kelly Barber, a 21-year-old history senior and vice president of the UF Libertarians. The week of events will include painting the 34th Street Wall, a public reading of the names of those who died in drone strikes, tabling and a protest outside of Tigert Hall, said Conor Munro, a 21-year-old history and economics junior and lead organizer for SDS. Peter Ifju, a UF mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, gets funding from the U.S. military to research unmanned aerial vehicles for investigating wildlife refuges owned by UF. Any technology, whether its drones, doing research on materials for instance, ceramics or metals virtually anything could be used for military purposes, he said. So this, just like any other technology, could be used for military purposes. No question about that. UF is one of 81 public entities authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration to use drones, according to a list released by the FAA in 2012. These drones are equipped with high resolution cameras to do research in uninhabited areas and remote wildlife sanctuaries. UF is not pus, Ifju said. Military drones were thrust into the national spotlight when the Obama administration increased the use of drone strikes against enemy combatants. UF Libertarians and SDS hope to seek answers about the universitys involvement with the U.S. military drone program, Munro said. We want to demilitarize UF, he said.

OSullivan said Thatcher was instrumental in ending the Cold War peacefully and reviving the British spirit and economy. When Thatcher was had made the country seem ungovernable, OSullivan said. However, Thatcher pursued policies that strengthened the economy and allowed for the growth of enterprise that characterized the 1980s. OSullivan credited Thatcher not only for her hard work and success, but also for her ability to foresee problems in the future. 1990, OSullivan said, she expressed her concerns about Europe moving to a universal currency. If they had followed her advice, Europe would not be in the terrible mess that its currently in, he said. OSullivan spoke before about 50 members of the Florida Free Speech Forum. Florida Free Speech Forum President Nath Doughtie said he was glad they were able to hear OSullivan speak. I thought with his reminisces and everything about somebody that important ... he gave a really special insight that you dont always get in a small town like Gainesville, he said. Charna Cohn, a member of the forum, said she enjoyed OSullivans speech because it offered a different perspective on European politics.

Saturdays grand reopening of the 42,000-square-foot store was complete with prizes and a guest appearance from Matt Elam, a former UF Gators safety. Ben Repp, co-manager of the store, estimated more than 500 people attended the opening. I think the crowd response was very good, he said. We had activities in the store, we gave out gift cards every hour, gave away a signed Tim Tebow football and handed out a $500 shopping spree. The main goal of remodeling the plan to have more space for customers and products, Repp said. The new layout includes specialty sports shops within the store, including an area for primarily UF apparel. Theres more space and it draws people to these areas, so its a nice big assortment of everything you need, Repp said.

Do it like a lady: drag queens and fansWell, spring has rolled around again, and for me, that means only one thing: I get to see colorfully dressed man-ladies strut their stuff up and down the catwalk in the Reitz Union Ballroom. UF Pride Awareness Months drag show is Wednesday, hosted in honor of Pride Awareness Month for the LGBT community. This might win understatement of the year because what better way to make someone aware of pride culture than with 6-foot men in gowns, 7-inch heels and hairdos to the roof? Try letting that go unnoticed on your radar. Headliners for the show are former contestants from RuPauls Drag Race, which is a TV show that stormed in with padded hips sashaying and wigs a-blowing and stole my heart. Hosted by the fabulous RuPaul, the show selects drag queens to compete for the title of Americas next drag superstar, and each week, the contestants have to compete in challenges and walk the runway in gloriously over-thetop costumes. Its just like Americas Next Top Model, but better in every single way. It takes all the fun of reality competition shows and ramps up the camp factor by a thousand. I thoroughly applaud whatever producer in Los Angeles got behind this idea. From what I have noticed, most of RuPauls fans are women and people within the LGBT community, which I Why would women, most of whom arent gay, really enjoy watching a show about drag queens? Whats the appeal? Drag queens are men who looked at the world of womanhood and got to pick and choose which parts they wanted to keep. Glamorous ball gowns and slinky mini dresses? Check. Sky-high heels? Double check. Dramatic hair and makeup? Nailed it. Catty back talk and sassy put-downs but also shared feelings of sisterhood? Of course. These men live out this dressed-to-the-nines fantasy not just in clubs or on girls nights out, but every single weekday for a living. What girl wouldnt be a little jealous of that? It would be like prom night and karaoke at the club rolled together, and you could get paid for it. As a girl who wobbles in heels, is inept in makeup and owns a severely limited wardrobe of Tshirts, I watch these queens with mixed feelings of awe, admiration and inferiority because they look like they are having more fun as gals during a two-hour show than I have on a daily basis of being one. Drag queens, for me, always remind me of a quote from in the Peking Opera, are womens roles played by men? Because only a man knows how a woman is supposed to act. It hits a paradox where most women wish their lives looked a little bit more like the lives men have impersonating them. Watching RuPaul, Im looking at women through the perspective of men trying to be women, and at some point, I am not sure which one is looking to the other for inspiration. Drag queens look to women as the models and inspiration for their work, and women look to drag queens as hope that a life that fabulous and glittery can exist in the real world. Sometimes drag gets criticized for perpetuating exaggerated stereotypes about women, the LGBT community and especially transgendered women, but I think drag teaches women and the LGBT community some important lessons. Mainly, remember to not always take yourself so seriously, but to always be proud of who you are and what you ing it. As the always lovely RuPaul once said, We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag. Amen. Enjoy the show tomorrow. Lauren Flannery is a business administration sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Tuesdays.Fats of Life: Stop snacking while watching TV showsHave you ever sat in front of the TV and not paid attention to what was happening on the screen? Thats apparently healthier for you than the alternative: caring. There is something unique about television and something unique about being engaged with television, said lead researcher David Bickham, a research scientist at the Center on Media and Child Health at Childrens Hospital Boston, according to a US News article. The amount of attention that young people pay to television is a key link between media use and issues with weight, continued Bickham, who also is an instructor in pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. All screen time is not the same, said Dr. Michael Rich of Childrens Hospitals Center for Media and Child Health, according to a report by the Boston Herald. With video games and the computer, your hands are busy, theres less advertising.... TV sets up an environment where food consumption is advertising is almost never for broccoli. This is why snack food companies do so well, because those types of food go so well with watching TV for hours. They go even better with shows that you are actively excited to watch. Think about it. People have entire watch parties for TV shows, complete with a whole spread of themed foods and snacks. Even simpler than that, though, is just sitting down with a meal to watch TV. Its connected in our brains to be fed while were entertained. (Looking at you, sports stadiums.) So even when we dont have an actual meal to eat at a normal meal hour, its still natural for us to grab something to just munch on in order to pass the time. If youre engaged with the TV, youre not paying attention to the food youre eating, or the cues that your body is giving, said Bickham, according to the report from the Boston Herald. This is a problem thats both on us, as humans and as consumers, and the advertisers who constantly shove unhealthy foods in front of our faces. We do think there has been certain strides made lately in advertising products that are better for your health, but most of us probably ignore them. Doesnt healthy give you a mental image of it tastes bad, so I hate it? Thats because advertising companies know its way easier to sell us the good-tasting, terrible-for-you products. Were dumb and impressionable, and we like to eat any kind of snack possible. Who knew caring about a TV show, however, was also going to be a part of our downfall? This study ... suggests that TV is the particular culprit. Further, just having a TV on in the background isnt the problem the problem is actually watching the TV, said Dr. David Katz, director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center, according to the article by US News. The study these scientists are referring to was taken from data of 13to 15-year-olds, so the damage has already been done to our hopeless bodies. Lauren Flanneryopinions@alligator.org

TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Supreme Court should stand on the right side of historyLast week, the Supreme Court heard arguments on two marriage equality laws: the Defense of Marriage Act and Californias Proposition 8. Decisions will not be released for several weeks, but the cases show the direction our country is heading. ing marriage equality, and President Obama is In addition, Ted Olson, a conservative legal icon, was the principal attorney that argued against the marriage equality ban in California. Meanwhile, public opinion on the issue has changed rapidly since California passed Proposition 8. Support for marriage equality is at a high. In the 18 to 32 age bracket, it is now 70 percent up from 51 percent 10 years ago. Nine states now allow same-sex couples to marry, and several others have pending measures. Of Democrats in the Senate, only six have not declared support for marriage equality. The momentum is heading in one direction, and the issue strikes at the core tions history. Marriage equality will happen in the United States, and sooner rather than later. Throughout the centuries, we have fought to expand rights for people regardless of the color of their skin, which God they pray to or their gender, and now they love as well. This is the civil rights issue of our time. Whether the Supreme Court stands on the right side of history or whether it stands in its way is a decision that we eagerly await. If the court declines to take up this historic moment, it risks being left on the sidelines as Americans do what we have done for centuries: utilize democratic means to create a more inclusive society and hence a more perfect union. Alessandro Bordoli UF alumnus, Class of 2012Letter to the EditorAll sorts of things pop into ones mind when the words BDSM, slave, master, masochist and sadist are thrown around. Throughout the last 20 years or so, perceptions of BDSM have changed in mainstream consciousness, arguably for the better. However, as with most mainstream perceptions, the publics view of BDSM is distilled down to stereotypes and the simplest icons to make consumption a quick affair. This has allowed BDSM out of the closet and allowed it to be considered among normal sexual activities, no longer just the dark and deviant. The problem with mainstreaming BDSM is it not only leaves out much of the intricacies of its power-play relationships but, in many cases, it tries to mold it into normative sexuality. I am holding out hope that this too shall pass, and BDSM will be considered on its own merit without having to wrap it back up in something the vanillas can feel good about. Think about it: Rihannas song S&M, Shades of Grey, Weeks, Secretary, Exit to Eden, countless references in primetime shows such as Law and Order, CSI, Family Guy, etc. all make mention of BDSM practices. Go ahead and laugh I do, a lot. But when you are done, take another look at what those high-exposure, spotlight-bright-as-the-sun media darlings say about the BDSM culture and the people within it. When was the last time you smirked while watching a popular show because a wit of kink was introduced a of those references? For the most part, I dont. But I still enjoy them, and, by all means, you should, too. Of course, I also urge you to consider researching alternative lifestyles. It may sound simple to just say stereotypes dont cover such a complex portion of human sexuality, and many may be wrong. On an intellectual level, most of us know this, but we are still victims of allowing stereotypes to invade our minds. When we are asked what a dominatrix is, dont most of us think of the leather-clad, spike heel-wearing, whipcracking, stern Queen Bitch who commands with a snarl you lick her boots? Really? Although that is one persona in the BDSM world, it is certainly not mine. How about the perceptions of a Master or Dom? The most common image is of a powerful male sexually and physically exerting complete control over the will and body of a submissive female. For the most part, this rings true. But it leaves out the how and why of it. Also, many people believe the dominance is founded on violence, power and sexual inequalities, and the female is subjugated as no more than a vessel of pleasure for the dominant man. In most BDSM relationships, mine included, this is a far cry from the truth and, most important, what does this say about the woman? What about the man? There are many misperceptions concerning BDSM and relationships. I cannot speak to all of them, but I can shine some light on the ones I am most intimately acquainted with. To start, yes, you can have a healthy, loving relationship while causing and receiving pain. Yes, you can submit your body and will to another and not only enjoy it but remain your own person as well. Just because pain gives you pleasure, does not mean you like all pain stubbing your toe still hurts. Not all Dom men want to abuse women. Not all female Dommes are scornful bitches. Not all submissive women are weak, meek and easy to abuse. Not all submissive men are gay. You dont have to choose one role at all. You can like to give and receive pain with both sexes, like I do. If this sounds trite, well, then good, because its meant to. Most people who live this lifestyle consider this arbitrary, but you know what? We remind everyone about it because we know better than most people what public misconceptions can do. Sadism and masochism are listed as mental diseases, and although its not common practice to lock us up anymore, the fact that it is still listed is enough to cause worry. So really, love it up, spank each other, tie each other up, invite more than just two at a time to play as long as it is all about loving and, most important, its consensual. Just look around; I know plenty of places to get your freak on many in our friendly local community. Open your eyes, open your mind and prepare to not be surprised at all but to discover another side to yourself and your community you already knew was there. If nothing else, you will have more to smirk about the next time you catch a BDSM reference on a mainstream show.

The Alachua County Black Democratic Caucus hosted the forum at the Alachua County Administration Building. About 30 people attended, but Mayor Craig Lowe was absent. Lowe couldnt participate because of a fundraising event scheduled before Mondays forum was announced, said Lowes campaign manager Nick Mildebrath. Lowe also missed the Feb. 11 Democratic Black Caucus debate because of a family emergency. Its amazing to me that you have a mayor that wants to run this city and he disrespects all of the African-Americans and other voters that we represent, said forum comoderator Charles Goston. Without an opponent in the debate, Braddy answered questions from Goston about transportation, the biomass plant and leadership. Braddy said he believes a proposed lane reduction on Northwest Eighth Avenue is a bad idea. He also discussed his support for the city to back out of its current biomass contract with Gainesville Renewable Energy Center. Regarding his leadership style, Braddy said he would allow residents more time to voice their concerns at City Commission meetings. I believe strongly in our representative system of government, he said. You have to make sure the people are in charge of the government. Goston said Lowes second absence at the Democratic Black Caucus could hurt his campaign. Tonight was the opportunity to let black voters know that we can no longer allow this 2 percent ... to control and select the people that represent us, he said. today at Oaks Hammock, located at 5100 SW 25th Blvd. Mildebrath said Lowe absent at second forum in runoff election for mayor ELLY AYRESAlligator Contributing WriterLilly Pulitzer Rousseau, the famed fashion icon who used a juice stand uniform to start her Floridian fashion empire in the early 1960s, died Sunday in West Palm Beach. She was 81. Pulitzers line includes dresses, shoes and jewelry. Her line is popular among college women, especially at UF. Gracie Carryl, an 18-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences freshman, remembers meeting Pulitzer in She said she will remember Pulitzer for her kindness and generosity. She was such a genuine person, Carryl said. Its sad to see such a legend go, but she probably lived one of the best lives of anyone. Susan Hines, owner of The Colorful Gator, 13005 SW First Road in Newberry, which offers Pulitzers line, said she was sad to hear of the icons passing but knows the company will keep her spirit alive. The one thing we love about Lilly is the slogan, Lead a colorful life, Hines said. Bright colors make people happy, and we love that she was a pioneer. Lauren Gonzalez, a 22-year-old UF journalism senior and former sales associate and social media manager at The Colorful Gator, said Pulitzers legacy is more than a clothing label. I think its gotten a reputation for being childlike, colorful and very Palm Beach, but I think theres a lot more to it than life and not taking yourself too seriously. Pulitzers transition from a couple of juice-stained dresses to a self-titled clothing line inspired Gonzalez to pursue a career in fashion. I think shes a great role model for women and any designer who wants to be an entrepreneur and start a business, she said.Colorful life of Lilly Pulitzer rememberedINTERNATIONAL ELENI KOUVATSOSAlligator Contributing WriterA UF alumna living in South Korea said she feels safe despite North Koreas recent threats of nuclear war.

However, after living in the country for almost a year, Chavez, 22, said life in South Korea after the recent threats is normal. Were obviously cautious, but the country is not in a state of emergency, she wrote in an email. Chavez said she registered with the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, so she will be informed of any evacuation plans or safety concerns. However, she said she feels the threats are attempts by North Koprove himself to his country. Zachary Selden, a UF assistant professor of political science, agreed, saying the threats are more dangerous than before because North Korea is refusing to recogended the Korean War in the 1950s. This is probably one of the least transparent regimes on Earth, he said. Its very hard to understand what goes on inside North Korea. be trying to test South Koreas new minister. He added the most important thing for the U.S. to do is to demonstrate to its allies in Asia that its commitment to them is real and to and American citizens like Chavez safe. Thats why were bolstering our presence in South Korea, he said. Its a way of telling South back. looming, Chavez said she will continue living and working in South Korea. I was aware of the ever present tension between [North] Korea and [South] Korea, she said. My safety being in danger wasnt a concern for me.Gators in Korea feel safe among threats This is probably one of the least transparent regimes on Earth.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2013 just ask John Brantley. But on a team that lost talent across the board, Sturgis could prove to be near the top of the list in terms of the Gators biggest loss. Junior quarterback Jeff Driskel made a salient point on Saturday. While speaking about Floridas offense, he talked about how it is hard to just put drives together consistently and about the necessity to develop an offense with quick-strike capabilities. He is correct. Connecting on throws plays makes scoring much easier. Last years team did not have that capability. It remains to be seen if this squad does. But Sturgis showed his true value when Floridas offense became stagnant and stalled. That is when he did his job better than anyone else in the country. Sturgis was 3 for 3 on attempts from 50 yards or longer last season. He was 24 of 28 overall. Floridas approach to winning games en route to a Sugar Bowl appearance was strong defense, great special teams and an offense that grinded out just enough points to win. I dont foresee that plan changing much next season. But if Phillips or Hardin or even walk-on Frank Velez, who was apparently thrown into the mix during spring cant become consistent enough to continue the plan, the entire team will suffer. Then Muschamp wont be the only one experiencing nightmares. Contact Phil Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.David Carr/ Alligator StaffKicker Caleb Sturgis (19) celebrates with former special teams and current defensive coordinator DJ Durkin during Floridas 37-26 win against Florida State on Nov. 24 in Tallahassee. SOFTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer Hall of Fame baseball manager Earl Weavers philosophy for winning was pitching, defense and the three-run homer. Against Mississippi State this weekend, Florida followed the same strategy. The No. 3 Gators (38-4, 12-3 Southeastern games, constituting 16 of Floridas 18 runs. Ive been coaching for a long time, and thats our style, coach Tim Walton said. But that style showed its faults in the Gators 6-5 loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday. After falling behind early, Florida scramThe Gators drew a walk and hit two singles to load the bases for catcher Taylore Fuller, who But after Fullers home run, UF struggled to get hits in key situations. Alison Owen came in to pitch for MSU after the second inning and shut down Floridas offense. Throughout the season, UF has relied on walks to get rallies started. But Owen showcased her control, walking only one batter. Without the luxury of free passes, Floridas offense struggled. The only hit a Florida batter managed off Owen was a solo home run by senior Kelsey Horton. I dont think we really had the opportunity to play a whole lot of small ball, Walton said. The Gators currently lead the SEC in walks but rank 10th in batting average. They are third in home runs. But on Sunday, Florida could not hit its way back into the lead. Floridas home-run hitting was consistent against MSU. UF hit two homers on Friday, one on Saturday and two on Sunday. The difference was the number of runners on base. On Friday, the Gators hit two singles before Horton hit a three-run homer. Florida then reloaded the bases with three walks before Stephanie Tofft hit a grand slam. UF scored all of its Saturday runs on a Jessica Damico grand slam. grand slam, the Gators could not get runners on base, and Hortons second homer of the series came with the bases empty. My players buy into the fact that we get 21 outs; how we choose to use those 21 outs is up to us, Walton said.

LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer Center Patric Young will return to Florida for his senior season in 2013-14, the team announced Monday. After saying he needed to discuss his decision with his family following UFs Elite Eight loss to Michigan on March 31, Young chose not to leave school for the NBA. degree and play another season for coach (Billy) Donovan with great teammates and friends at a place I love, Young said in a release. lieve it is my senior year already. I have gotten better as a player and better as a man at the University of Florida. I believe God has my future in his hands, so all I am worried about now is getting better this summer and making it the hardest I have trained in my life. Before Monday, many mock draft websites projected Young as a second-round pick. DraftExpress.com listed the 6-foot-9, 249-pound Young as the 38th player on the board. NBADraft. net had him at No. 53. This was Patrics decision to make, Donovan said in a release. He ultimately had to do what he felt was best for himself and his future. Youngs return bolsters Floridas frontcourt in 2013-14. The Gators add 6-foot-9 forward Damontre Harris once South Carolinas starting center is eligible to play next season after sitting out the 2012-13 campaign per NCAA transfer rules. Dorian Finney-Smith, a 6-foot-8 forward who transferred to Florida after one season at Virginia Tech in 2011-12, will also join the Gators frontcourt next season. Forwards Will Yeguete and Casey Prather, who combined for 9.5 rebounds per game off the bench in 2012-13, also return for their senior seasons. Young is just 122 points shy of becoming the 50th Gator to reach 1,000 career points. Throughout his junior year, Young was a reliable scorer but an inconsistent rebounder. He averaged 10.1 points and 6.3 rebounds but did not post consecutive games with at least 10 boards. Young shot 58.6 percent from the team of players with at least 10 shots. But his free-throw percentage dropped to 48.9 percent last season 10.4 percentage points lower than his 2011-12 mark. Young age among Gators who attempted at least 30 free throws. He improved as a shot blocker, averaging 1.6 blocks twice as many as he collected as a sophomore. His 34 steals were tied for third-best on the squad. Young recorded 16 points and nine rebounds in UFs secondround victory against Northwestern State but then struggled during the remainder of the NCAA Tournament. Young averaged 5.7 points on 35.3 percent shooting and 6.3 boards. He made only 9 of 20 free-throw attempts during the Big Dance.

Freshman Eric Banks continued his strong spring season after shoot a 70 (-2) in the second round and tie for 25th. Banks has been the biggest surUF golf shines in seniors absence Young staying for senior season at FloridaPHILIBUSTER Finding a capable replacement for Caleb Sturgis is a thought that surely gives Will Muschamp headaches. Heck, it might even give him nightmares at this point, and the season is still more than four months away. Muschamp joked near the end of last season that Florida was looking for an extra year of eligibility for the redshirt senior kicker. Gone is the two-time Lou Groza Award kicker. Gone is the nearly automatic right leg that took the pressure off of Floridas underperforming offense by essentially guaranteeing three points if the Gators could at least advance past inside the oppositions 40-yard line. Gone is the programs all-time made. But more important than what is gone is what is returning for the Gators in the kicking department next season. And if Saturdays performances during the Orange and Blue Debut are any indication, the cupboard is pretty bare. Neither senior Brad Phillips nor redshirt freshman Austin Hardin was particularly impressive during drills or at the end were kept, but simply watching was more than enough for me. Kicks missed left. Kicks missed right. One kick resembled a clay pigeon shot out of the sky at a shooting range, slamming into the left upright and bouncing away. Floridas offense again looked average. The kicking game was a mess. And from statements made by coaches and players, it is clear this was not a oneday outlier. Rather, inconsistency from the two kickers has become the norm. Im not going to lie, were missing Sturgis right now, punter Kyle Christy said not because of lack of effort. Of course it isnt.

Think of that kid trying to make a full revolution on a swing at the playground. They gain enough momentum to reach the apex the point of no return where they either swing all the way around or fall back down to square one. Florida has been stuck at square one. Tonights matchup in Tallahassee at 6 features two teams in the midst of two very different seasons. The No. 7 Seminoles (27-5) are continuing their ascension with a veteran starting rotation. The Gators (15-18) are struggling to keep their heads above water with a collection of young talent. Yet, three games under .500 doesnt do the Gators justice. NFL Hall of Famer Bill Parcells said, You are what your record says you are. ESPN has a show nobody watches called Numbers Never Lie. The numbers dont tell the story for Florida. the Gators have drowned in their own blunders. Six losses stand out. Florida lost to Georgia Southern 8-7 in extra innings on Feb. 20, Florida Gulf Coast 7-4 on Feb. 24 in extra innings, North Florida 7-6 on Feb. 26 in 10 innings and Ole Miss 4-3 on March 29 in 11 frames. The Gators dropped en innings on March 24 while losing to Florida State 2-1 late on March 26. All these games shouldve ended with the wondering what went wrong. Florida suffered a six-game losing streak earlier in the year that catcher Taylor Gushue called the Gators lowest point this season. Since dropping its sixth straight contest on March 1 dropping UF to 3-7 Florida is 12-11. The Gators losses to the Rebels, the Commodores and the Seminoles mirrored those during their six-game losing streak. If Florida could eliminate its issues in close contests, reaching the NCAA Regional again this year is a real possibility. But an inconsistent season is expected from this ravaged roster. For three years, Florida squads ever. Five players from the 2012 team spent time in Major League spring training. Left-hander the 2012 MLB Draft to reach the majors. Hes pitched two scoreless innings for the Dodgers this year. Catcher Mike Zunino has a .417 averThe Gators of yesteryear were really good. Take into account key signees never reaching school, and its clear why Florida isnt Florida this year. A down year comes with a mass exodus to The Show. This team is growing, albeit slowly. Freshman shortstop Richie Martin looks like a budding star up the middle. Ill take a Casey Turgeon any day. Gushue at catcher although he needs work defensively is carrying Floridas offense. Doubles machine Justin Shafer has been a consistent run producer. Floridas pitching has improved since several early-season hiccups. Its time to see the silver lining. I described Florida on Feb. 27 as a talented team yet to this year. Is the 2013 season disappointing? Yeah. But in an adverse season riddled with injuries and departures, these young guns are giving a glimpse of a bright future.
