During the Tuesday hearing, prosecutors said a with Judge Martha Lotts successor. Lott is scheduled to retire May 31, and the next case management hearing is set for June 11. The decision once again delayed the case, which began seven months ago when Christian Aguilar was reported missing. Bravo, the 19-year-old Santa Fe College student accused of murdering Aguilar in September, faces multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, including premeditated murder a capital offense. Darry Lloyd, spokesman for the 8th Judicial Cira trial would be set. We would hope it will be this year, he said. If the motion passes, Lloyd said attorneys on both sides will plan depositions for witnesses and investigators as well as begin to review evidence. Aguilars family and supporters most of who drove up from Doral to attend wore white T-shirts with a photo of Aguilar and Justice For Chris written at the bottom.

Katherine Ellison, a corporate communications specialist for The Home Depot, said although the Southeastern region stores increase storm supplies during hurricane season, these stores are typically prepared year round. Storms can come early in the season. Hurricanes can come later in the season, she said. You just never know. Florida is not a stranger to hurricanes. The common theme is that an above-active season is expected ... according to climatology, said UF Chief Meteorologist Jeff Huffman. Much of the Southeast United States, including Florida, is overdue for a landfalling, major hurricane.

No matter what the prediction is for the number of storms, it only takes one that can result in major impacts, he said. Huffman said his team is preparing for the season by participating in a WRUF multimedia properties hurricane drill from May 27 to May 31. His team will test the systems set up to cover major storms. UF Emergency Management Coordinator Kenneth Allen said UF students and faculty should get ready for hurricane season now. We want people to be prepared all year long, he said. UFs plan during emergency differs for on-campus and offcampus students. On-campus students would take shelter in their dorms. Those in graduate and family housing would take shelter in their homes. If the emergency were to extend more than 24 hours, Gator Dining would provide food to residents. Off-campus students would be welcome to stay at a shelter provided by UF, Allen said, but would not be provided food via Gator Dining. I stress, theyre members of the community and need to be prepared, he said. Off-campus residents are expected to follow city guidelines and instructions, such as curfews and boiling water, during a storm. UF is not responsible for damages to residents belongings. Stock up on things you know youre going to need, said Ellison, from The Home priority. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 HURRICANE, from page 1UF has storm plansCAMPUS COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterMatthew Price went out with his brother in Austin, Texas last December. After a night on the town, Price did the right thing: He called a cab. Price, then a student enrolled in UFs one-year professional masters degree in business administration Products in Bradenton, was home on vacation for Winter Break. But that night on the freeway, his life changed forever. While on the way home, the taxi stalled on the freeway in the righthand lane. A drunk driver didnt see the car and pummeled the cab. His brother walked away with few injuries. But Price didnt. Not only did he suffer a few broken bones, but the crash also shocked his spinal cord. Now, the 29-year-old is paralyzed from the muscles and wiggle his toes, but he cannot use his legs. Theres no real way of knowing if my legs will come back, Price said. He began to miss his monthly meetings in the business program. A few of his classmates in his cohort of about 65 students began to notice. Prices friend German Escallon heard about Prices injuries from another classmate. Escallon, who is currently working on building brother, decided to rally their classmates to support Price. Were closer than most of the cohorts, the 29-year-old UF alumnus said. We really developed something special. Escallon heard about Prices friends sponsoring a golf tournament in his name, but he wanted to do something within the UF community. He started MBAs for Matt and began a GiveForward page to collect donations for Prices hospital bills. Price attends in-patient therapy week for the next month. For the rest of the year, he must undergo about days a week. The therapy bills add up, and Price has to pay out of pocket. His hospital stay alone was $300,000. In just two weeks, Escallon raised $6,669 for Price, which surpassed the goal of $5,000. We were overwhelmed by the support that we received, Escallon said. At the programs graduation reception held in the Touchdown Terrace April 14, Price was given a signed picture of Novak Djokovic with a personal message from the tennis pro. To get a picture that is signed by my favorite tennis player and having him hear my story really meant a lot to me, Price said.

If I took a class I Getting me to the graduation stage took a whole team of people for that, Im eternally grateful. One of my prized possessions is the fact that I earned the president of Theatre Strike Force position. Without that club and its constant tomfoolery, am today. Of course, my time here at the Alligator has also shaped me as a person. I started as a blogger and wrote about the comedy scene in Gainesville. I probably used it as a way to plug TSF more times than what should be legally possible, so I followed my previous TSF/Alligator brethren. I wrote columns, I edited the Avenue and I wrote more columns from my sunny home in Kissimmee. All of those experiences led me to be Justin Hayes choice of op-ed successor. If he wasnt busy being a badass graduate student, I wouldnt have this job at all. And so, as we enter the sunset of our youth Ive heard terrible things about being a real adult in the real world with a real job and real problems take it to heart that youre not alone. Weve all dealt with some very awful tragedies during my time as editor. (Some conservative old guy will email me saying the true tragedy was Obamas re-election.) But thankfully, we made it to the other side. And yes, those are our real names. Sami Main is the opinions editor.

10, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffBoth 32-ounce jugs and one-gallon jugs of beer, sold at Swamp Head Brewery, are legal container sizes in Florida. Lobbyists are trying to legalize the 64-ounce size beverages. ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterFloridas beer industry is on tap for new legislation involving the sizing of jugs of beer, commonly known as growlers, sold at breweries. Due to an old state law, brewery patrons can legally purchase as many 32-ounce and 1-gallon growlers as theyd like, but though thats the industry standard in most other states. Mitch Rubin, a lobbyist for the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association, opposed the 64-ounce containers. He said he spoke against the bills to protect the three-tiered system of beer distribution. In the system, distributors act as middlemen between retailers and brewers. They exist to stop vertical integration among the retailers, the distributors and the brewers, Rubin said. Swamp Head Brewery, in particular, has voiced its opinion on the subject on its website, where it states that people who seek to buy beer can choose between the giganto gallon jug or the Red Stripe on steroids 32 oz. growler. Swamp Head credits this policy to an antiquated Florida law. In the coming year, we plan on pushing for new legislation to legalize the 64-ounce container, Rubin said. Our main concern lies in closing the loopholes currently open in the system. Casey Davis, a 21-year-old UF accounting senior, said he thinks the system is ecoIf the bigger one is cheaper compared to the lower size, then Id want to buy the bigger one, he said, even if I wasnt goFlorida beer brewers want to fill their growlers to the top In the coming year, we plan on pushing for new legislation to legalize the 64-ounce container.Mitch RubinLobbyist for the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association ITEMS WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE ODOME.

12, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 STATE KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterMichael Terry clearly remembers the hours before his friends died in the early morning of October 16, 2011. They were at Froggys Saloon in Daytona during Biketober Fest. Terrys cee Allison Sellers were getting ready to leave at about 1 a.m. Terry tried to get them to stay the night, but Remonsanzol wanted to sleep in his own bed at home in Sanford. Then they said their goodbyes. At about 2:30 a.m., Terry received a call from Remonsanzol. The couple were at Dennys eating breakfast. They were safe, Remonsanzol said over the phone. Terry didnt know that was the last time he would talk to his friend. He didnt know that about two hours later, an SUV would drive up behind the couple riding on Remonsanzols motorcycle on Interstate 4 and hit them. He didnt know that Sellers, 32, would hit the shoulder, dying on impact, and the road and get run over over by multiple cars before he died. I really couldnt comprehend it that well, Terry, 45, said, that it happened to my friends of all of the people out there. Remonsanzol and Sellers were part of 8,621 people involved in motorcycle crashes in 2011 in Florida, an increase of 15 percent from 2010, according to the most recent data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. From 2000 to 2010, the number of motorcycle crashes and injuries increased overall, according to a study from the Florida Department of Transportation and the University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research. Chanyoung Lee, a senior researcher at the USF center, said this spike could be the product of a few reasons. Motorcycle registration has more than doubled in the 10-year period, he said. And in 2000, Florida passed a law that allowed motorcyclists over the age of 21 to ride without a helmet if they had at least a $10,000 insurance policy, he said. Motorcyclists have a much higher risk of crashing on their own as well, Lee said. About 30 percent of motorcycle crashes do not involve a second vehicle. However, in cases of two-vehicle crashes like Remonsanzols and Sellers, automobile drivers were found to be at fault about 60 percent of the time. Lee said car drivers dont expect to see a motorcycle and underestimate how much space it takes up on the road. People have a tendency to make a judgment based on the size of the object, he said. Back at the scene of the crash, Florida Highway Patrol troopers could not monsanzol and Sellers. to the accident recognized a 2007 Ford Explorer that matched the description of the vehicle involved in the crash pulled over on the side of a road off Interstate 4 not far from the accident. The car was driven by UF student Rita Laurie Carter, then 19, who troopers now believe is responsible. content level, and it was reported to be .043 about three hours after the crash. Using a mathematical process called found that her BAC level at the time of the crash was .095. The legal limit is .08, according to Florida Highway Patrol. After a year-and-a-half-long FHP to the crash. She now faces two counts of DUI manslaughter and two counts of leaving the scene of a fatal crash, among other charges. And after a year and a half, Remonsanzols and Sellers family and friends are still reeling. It was so painful I still cant even believe it, said Sellers best friend of 26 years, Samantha Schmidt, who vacationed with Sellers just two weeks before her death. She wont even touch a motorcycle. Schmidts father, Greg Bush, 64, and Terry were in the process of building a bike for Sellers. Now, it wont be ridden, he said. Bush still rides his own motorcycle but looks behind him more often after the accident. Since the crash, Terry remembers the hours before he lost his friends. He wonders, too, about what wouldve happened if he left with Sellers and Remonsanzol that night. Maybe if I couldve been there, I couldve helped out, he said. Maybe I wouldve died. You just never know.Florida motorcycle crashes increase THE TEAM WON A TOTAL OF $13,500. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Contributing Writer Works Challenge in the large institution category. The team that represented UF earned $2,500 and an $11,000 grant to monitor the improvements of its design. The challenge required the 218 teams of aspiring landscape architects, planners and engineers to design an innovative green infrastructure system that would reduce stormwater pollution and support sustainable communities. The winners were selected after three rounds by a team of 33 judges. UFs team consisted of 12 students studying landscape architecture, environmental engineering and agricultural and biological engineering. Glenn Acomb, landscape architecture senior lecturer and faculty adviser, said he found out about the challenge last summer and thought it was right up their alley. Landscape architecture is, in many ways, a unique blend of art and science, he said. So green infrastructure is an integral part of what we do. The team chose the North Lawn as the site of its project. Landscape architecture senior and team project manager Emily Sturm said the project dealt with cleaning the stormwater from the lawn during its journey to Lake Alice. The inspiration behind our design was conveying the journey of water, Sturm, 23, said. She said the proposal would lead to cleaner water. The team was honored at the ceremony with the EPA on Monday. Its designs are now on the EPAs website. The students were commenting that its another national championship for the Gators, Acomb said. They were really quite proud.UF takes first in rain challenge It was so painful I still cant even believe it.Samantha Schmidtfriend of Allison Sellers

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 Elise Giordano / Alligator Staff ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterOn Monday, Gov. Rick Scott signed the Career and Professional Education Act, which will boost education in public schools, community colleges and universities. The legislation will enable state universities to qualify as preeminent research universities, and receive additional money for online initiatives and high-tech degree programs. Based on student performance, retention rates, research spending and national rankings, UF has met the requirements to be named a preeminent research university, and will receive additional funds. Jen Belew, a 22-year-old elementary education junior, said she thought using the money to add more online classes would help students who cant commute to campus. UF President Bernie Machen said the bill will help the university achieve its goal of becoming a top 10 university, according to a news release. key pieces we need to head down that road, he said according to the news release. Thanks to the vision of House Speaker Will Weatherford, it also awards UF the state online degree institute and puts us at the forefront of online learning. The legislation will enable state colleges to offer degrees for $10,000, according to a news release on Scotts website. All of the 23 Florida community colleges that have a bachelors degree program have accepted Scotts proposal to offer services for that price. Katie Stults, a 21-year-old elementary education junior, said she thought the lower costs could affect college departments resources. But ultimately, I think its a great thing, she said.

Nearby, Janet Alligood sat in the glass ticket booth Monday, chatting with patrons and selling $3 tickets to the 8 p.m. showing of The Croods. As Alligood tore a ticket off the roll for a man, he asked if a particutake the screen. Ill try to get it, Alligood said. Its on my list. What Alligood didnt say is that she hopes her list wont be gone for good. The 103-year-old theater that Alligoods family has owned for the past three decades is being threatto digital. 21st Century Fox announced that this summer, it will discontinue 35companies are expected to follow suit by the end of the year. Upgrading would require $85,000 to get digital equipment. The family has been working to garner pledges through an online fundraising page on Kickstarter to buy a digital projector to replace the reel projector, which dates back to the 1940s. The website keeps track of contributors but doesnt withdraw the money from their accounts until the end date of the campaign. If the Alligoods dont reach the goal by June 3, all of the pledges will be erased. Its all, or none, said Alan Alligood, Janets husband. With 40 days left in the campaign, the theater has raised about $14,000. For now, donation envelopes sit on glass display cases in the lobby, and a thermometer banner tracks the fundraising progress on the outside of the building. Carol Hunn, a 46-year-old Alachua resident, stood in line with her two daughters to buy popcorn right before the show started. She said her family appreciates the atmosphere of the theater. It does have a real sense of family, she said. Its more ...

According to data released last month by the Florida Department of Health, the county had a rate of 904.3 per 100,000 people, ranking it fourth behind Hamilton, Leon and Gadsden counties. The data showed 15to 24-year-olds are most affected. Teresa Mercado-White said chlamydia is the No. 1 STD affecting people in these age groups. Mercado-White, a minority AIDS coordinator for the Alachua County Health Department, said the rate is high because of the increase in the number of people getting tested. People are passing it around like pudding, she said. Samantha Evans, a sexual health educator with GatorWell Health Promotion Services, agreed. She said the more people who get tested, the larger the potential to see those tests come back positive. Evans said the high numbers of STDs may still be a reason for concern, adding that there needs to be continued support for educational programs. Continued funding and even more resources need to be available to the organizations with preventative programs, she said. Isis Barnes, a 20-year-old UF biology sophomore and the incoming president of Respect Yourself, Check Yourself, Protect Yourself Movement at UF, said students should receive sex education before attending college. Unfortunately, this is often not the case, she said. I feel like it could be broadened or taken to another level because obviously, what were doing is not working, she said.STD rates high in AlachuaCOUNTY People are passing it around like pudding.minority AIDS coordinator for the Alachua County Health Department

18, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 Derek A. Smith / AlligatorTogether for A Better Gainesville with residents to discuss concerns and ideas regarding issues like public safety and transportation. NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterTwo years ago, as part of the City of Gainesvilles wellness initiative for their employees, the city began providing Zumba classes. The classes were originally in the Gainesville Regional Utilities center and held about 15 city employees. Within two classes, instructors Christiane Machado and Maria Adela Ramirez knew they had to expand. Soon after, the classes relocated to the Thelma A. Boltin Center, located at 516 NE Second Ave. With a larger location, authorities agreed to open the Zumba classes to the public sistance from the city due to liabilities. Both sides the city and the instructors compromised that every person had to sign a waiver to participate. Months after the classes opened to the public, children started attending with their parents. As part of the contract with the Zumba instructors and the city, no children were allowed for safety reasons. Machado said since the classes began, no accidents occurred until April 15 when an adult student slipped. Complaints about children attending led to a disagreement between the instructors and the Risk Management Department, which funded the classes. Rod Clark, Program Coordinator for the City of Gainesville, contacted Machado to cancel the classes April 15. Our job is to reduce the risk of people getting hurt, he said. Machado and Ramrez took the issue to the city. On Thursday, about 60 supporters marched to the Gainesville City Commission and gave emotional testimonies, including someone who overcame the effects of a stroke after they started attending Zumba classes. Zumba gives you a rush we all say we get high off of Zumba, Machado said. The commission passed a motion to keep classes the going. City Commissioner Todd Chase donated part of his 5 percent raise to continue the program. The classes will be on hiatus from April 30 to May 15. Once classes resume, the city will require participants to donate between $1 and $5 for the class, Machado said. Chases donation will be placed in a scholarship fund for those who cannot afford the class. Now, children are allowed to attend the class. It was the work of all of us, Machado said. We just want to shake our tail feathers. We dont want to do no harm.City Zumba classes encounter issues REGISTRATION IS $50. ALYSSA NIEVESAlligator Contributing WriterIn about a week, the streets of Midtown and downtown will be packed with people ready to party. The 31st annual Gator Stompin hosted by the Pledge 5 Foundation will from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. May 2. It used to be just a pub crawl, but its a lot more than that now, said Jason Bowman, the foundations director. He said about 100 restaurants, bars and nightclubs will participate this year to accommodate the estimated 10,000 attendees. Everyone who registers for the event will receive a T-shirt and 10 tokens that can be used to purchase drinks and food, Bowman said. Registration is $50. Gator Stompin supports various local charities, but the majority of the money will go to the Pledge 5 Foundation. Were growing almost quicker than we can keep up with, but as long as people keep coming to our events and giving back to the community, I think were headed in the right direction, Bowman said. He said there will be a safe-ride program and shuttle system running that night. Tony Riggio, a 20-year-old UF entomology and nematology junior, said he had always been under the impression that participants had to be at least 21 years old. Now that I know that there are a lot of things for me to do that dont going, he said.31st Gator Stompin set for May 2Bowman Zumba gives you a rush, we all say we get high off of Zumba.Christiane MachadoZumba instructor

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 25 END OF GREGULATION If youve read just about anything Ive written during my four years with alligatorSports, youre probably expecting a lot of numbers in this space. I hate to disappoint, but I have just one: name appears in a byline, podcast or video show for the Alligator. Most of those have been packed with references to KenPom, cfbstats.com and My appreciation for the numbers isnt as simple as the clich that they never lie. In reality, numbers are the only things that keep me sane. Theyre the key to my longer spending all my time worrying about what other people think. When I was a freshman at UF, I played a LOT of online poker. After a high school career in Connecticut agonizing about what was cool and how I was viewed, I got to come to UF and be alone. At the end of my freshman year, I only knew the names of maybe a dozen non-athletes. And I absolutely loved it. I still had all my friends from back home, but down here nobody was watching. I could do whatever I wanted. For a time that meant at least 40 hours each week of poker, not counting the class ing hand histories on PokerStove. I havent found anything more mentally stimulating than getting inside a persons step ahead. The game works the way life should: You get a set of rules that everyone has to play by, and you work to master them and develop a style that allows you to acquire equity and ultimately be the best you can be. More than that, poker taught me the most valuable lesson Ive ever learned: You can do everything right and still fail, and you have to accept that. You can make perfect move after perfect move after perfect move for seven or eight hours, and if youre lucky youll get everything in the middle as a 56 percent favorite. Then theres the times you do everything right and the other guy just happens to have aces. Or the times you get it in ahead, the dealer brings an unlucky turn and you lose anyway. Sounds pretty depressing, right? I mean, why bother to do things the right way if all of life is just a game of chance? To me, the difference between winners and losers in poker and in the real world is that desire and willingness to scratch and claw to make sure the chance of success is 56 percent instead of 53. That extra of everyday life, and the vast majority of the time its completely invisible. But I have enough faith in the numbers to believe itll bear itself out in the long run. In the meantime, I can take comfort in the fact that Im always doing everything I can to give myself the best chance to succeed at whatever Im trying to do, and that Im being true to myself within that process. With a genuine belief in that system, everything that goes wrong in life is pretty easy to deal with. Its just variance. Bad luck. That being said, I refuse to sit here at age 22 and pretend for a second live. Im in no position to give advice. Im just trying to learn something new and get a little bit better every day. But that faith in the odds has gotten me through every bit of adversity Ive faced in a relatively cushy life. When a girl doesnt want to go out with me, I shake it off. When is a shot like that any better than 30 or 40 percent anyway? When my best friend decided to become a stranger without warning, it was a bad break. I still approach friendship the same way I always have, and Im still there for anyone who needs me. But enough about the bad. Ive also had some unbelievable streaks of good luck, like being given a shot at the Alligator and meeting all of the great people Im about to thank. To me, this whole student-paper-goodbye-column thing makes about as much sense as a recently called-up Triple-A player doing a press conference to say a teary and heartfelt farewell to the International League. But if Im given space to thank all the people who put me where I am today and made life worth it, Im going to take advantage. Thanks to Phil Kegler, Kyle Maistri and Bobby Callovi for hiring me and giving me a chance back in Fall 2009. To Adam Berry for showing me the ropes and, as recently as yesterday, making some To Chiang, Tyler, Tom, Watts, Boothe, Joe and Phil for editing my stuff despite a blatant lack of regard for inch counts. (This column is already longer than it should be.) To Corey, Fink and the rest of the copy staff for putting up with my ridiculous numbers. To my parents for giving me every opportunity I could ever dream of, to my boys from Connecticut for keeping it a place I can call home, and to Katie for indulging my obsession with Hayley Williams. To my roommates at The Stables, who are always good for some BSing and will at least pretend to care when I theorize about beer pong advanced metrics. (I still contend that shooting percentage on shots that hit plastic, like batting average on balls in play ure based on your shooting form.) To stats for making my life possible, even as I all but abandon poker and probability to pursue a career with words. And to any of you who made it through my long-winded, usually stat-packed ramAfter four long years, this truly is the End of Gregulation. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterBefore becoming an OConnell Center staple with thousands of Rowdy Reptiles cheering his name, Ron Moose Davis was just a teacher on his way home from swim practice. His tenure as the Speedo-waving, moosein 1988. At age 46, Davis was training for the FINA World Masters Championships. He swam laps in the OConnell Centers outdoor pool nearly every night. Davis struggles to pinpoint the game when it all began, but he believes it was UFs 83-76 win against Kentucky on Feb. 20, 1988. Back in 88, basketball attendance and ODome security were not what they are today. After he was done with his laps, Davis stopped in to check out the game, carrying his swim bag into a mostly empty arena. Davis row behind the basket by the home bench, just a seat or two left of center. When the Wildcats stepped to the line to attempt a foul shot, Davis glanced to his bag. In what he says was just a spur of the moment thing, he reached in, grabbed the green, stillwet Speedo and began waving it around. The guy looked at it and was like, What in the world? Davis recalls. I said, If it works, youve got to do it. The tradition was born. Nearly 24 years later, everything about Davis and his shtick has evolved. The crowds have ballooned, a following has grown and the Speedo has changed. When opposing free-throw shooters step to the line, students yell, Look at the Moose! and wave cardboard cutouts of Bullwinkle. In the row behind Davis, a season-ticket holder with a New York accent shouts Look at the Moose panties! although Davis would point out that panties and a Speedo are very different things. Hed never want to trumpet something so racy at an event with so many children. You want to try this on? he shouts at the unsuspecting shooter. Usually, they ignore him. The good ones always do. But every once in a while, a younger player will give him a wink or a smile. Concentration broken. Mission accomplished. Davis earned his undergraduate degree in physical education at UF in 1963, back when the Gators played at the Florida Gymnasium. mately decided not to pursue a doctorate, but if he did he says he would have written his thesis on sports psychology. For all the spontaneity in its creation, the Davis wears the same thing to every home game jeans and a white Gators button down. In a sea of orange and blue, the contrast of the white is meant to attract attention. When the OConnell Center added new seats last season, Davis was stuck on the opposite side. He quickly asked to be switched back. He wasnt comfortable on the other side. The Moose will work best if he can get to the opponent early, Davis thought. mind games begin. You held it a little too tight, youve got to get it a little looser, Davis shouts. Your elbows were out that time. it wasnt. Either way, the seeds of doubt are planted. If you can break up that routine a little bit, Davis says, theyve got a chance. Although Davis has met Florida coach Billy Donovan and even had him sign a basketball, the two have never discussed Davis role as Moose. Billys got enough to worry about, Davis said. Instead, those conversations are reserved for Billys dad, William, who always gets a rise out of Davis antics. For many years, William knew Davis only as the guy with the Moose head and stuff. coaching basketball at Queen of Peace, a K-8 school in Gainesville where Davis is the volgame, all of the pieces fell into place. When I realized it was Ron, I started to get a kick out of it, William said. Im telling you, hes hot stuff. Gainesville High tennis coach Paul Spradling has season tickets for seats 3 and 4 to the vis post. Davis and his wife of 45 years, Alicia, are actually ticketed for Row 10, but Spradling Seats 1 and 2 behind the basket rarely ever sell. Seeing around the hoop structure is nearly impossible. No one ever fusses about Davis snagging those seats and doing his routine. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 27 Jason Lieser / Courtesy to The AlligatorRon Davis has been attending Florida basketball games since his days as a student in the early 1960s.

Its like ambiance or something, Spradling said. Its part of the atmosphere. Weve got this crazy joker with a moose hat on. During free throws, that is. In normal game action, Davis stays mostly silent. Hes honed in. Hes like a mortician, Spradling said. Quiet as a church mouse. When its time for him to stand up, hes right up there doing it. When the Moose stirs, the student section takes notice. Davis says fans usually girls still approach him before, during and after most games to have their picture taken next to him. At one game in the early 2000s, Davis was approached by the mother of Gators great David Lee. The guys really love what you do out there, she told him. That moment was as close as he ever came to hearing from a coach or player, regardless of the connection to coach Donovans father and wife, Christine, who keeps score for the volleyball teams at Queen of Peace. But Davis doesnt need recognition he does the Moose routine for fun. If anything, he would like for his wife to be able to meet Billy Donovans daughter, Hasbrouck, so the two could discuss horses. Davis and his wife breed, raise and sell horses from their farm in Newberry. They own nine, with another expected to be born in the near future. They also have one in Kentucky that Alicia, who stewards competitions and has been showing horses since she was 12, will be riding in competition this week. Hasbrouck is attending Auburn on an equestrian scholarship. Shes a horse person, and my wife is a horse person, Davis said. Getting those two together would be interesting. Before the Moose was unleashed on the Southeastern Conference, an Davis and his wife were there on vacation sometime in the mid-90s, and Davis wanted to pick up a gift for his son, Christopher. The plush moose hat was perfect. The small central dome was colored the deep brown of moose fur. Small, tan, pillowy antlers stuck out from the sides. The hat was hardly bulky Davis neatly tucks it away between foul shots but it was still too large to be packed in his stuffed airplane luggage. So Davis did the only logical thing: He wore it around the airport. I see people turning their heads looking like, What in the world? Davis said. And I said, You know what? This might work at the basketball game. The Speedo changed through the years the current model is too small for him to ever wear, just something used he bought but the hat has remained constant. of a superfan, Davis sheepishly admits his attendance record is far from spotless. Just last year he missed a game to go snowmobiling with his family in West Yellowstone. He also misses most of the road games, instead just pacing his living room as he watches on TV. If its a close game, I walk more, Davis said. No need for any silly superstitions or traditions. I cant affect the game, Davis said. His only prop is a Velcro referee doll with a plastic yellow whistle and removable head and limbs. Alicia bought it for him, hoping to give him a healthy way to let off his frustrations. If something doesnt go his way, Davis has been known to send the head careening across the room. It doesnt hurt the TV, Davis said. During his 28 years as a high school swim coach, Davis worked with many different programs around Florida. His team at Gainesville High was one of the rade, and he got the Gainesville East Side program off the ground with a squad of just four boys and one girl. He ultimately coached about eight All-Americans. After more than 36 years teaching physical education at public schools, Davis grew fed up with the class sizes, retired and started at ible, he runs things his way, and he doesnt have to go to any meetings he doesnt want to. From a cluttered feet at the corner of the gym, Davis handles scheduling and makes sure all of the little details are taken care of every event has a trash can and somebody to handle concessions. He still does Masters swimming, although the intensity has dropped from 1988. That year he traveled to Brisbane, Australia, for the champiwater polo and taking on a grueling swim schedule that culminated in breast stroke, his best event. His swims today are more casual and infrequent, but even at age 71 he doesnt intend to stop anytime soon. I want to swim in that 100-plus age group, he said. In the meantime, hes still around Queen of Peace, keeping the athletics in order. But only in the afternoon in the morning he and his wife feed the horses and clean out their stalls. And, of course, hes still going to basketball games, which hes attended almost religiously since the OConnell Center opened in 1980. Always behind the basket, always with the Speedo and moose hat. The students expect it, so I almost have to be there, Davis said. If I get one foul shot missed, it may not be because of the moose, but they think it is. And I think it is.

UFs plan during emergency differs for on-campus and offcampus students. On-campus students would take shelter in their dorms. Those in graduate and family housing would take shelter in their homes. If the emergency were to extend more than 24 hours, Gator Dining would provide food to residents. Off-campus students would be welcome to stay at a shelter provided by UF, Allen said, but would not be provided food via Gator Dining. I stress, theyre members of the community and need to be prepared, he said. Off-campus residents are expected to follow city guidelines and instructions, such as curfews and boiling water, during a storm. UF is not responsible for damages to residents belongings. Stock up on things you know youre going to need, said Ellison, from The Home priority. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 HURRICANE, from page 1UF has storm plansCAMPUS COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterMatthew Price went out with his brother in Austin, Texas last December. After a night on the town, Price did the right thing: He called a cab. Price, then a student enrolled in UFs one-year professional masters degree in business administration Products in Bradenton, was home on vacation for Winter Break. But that night on the freeway, his life changed forever. While on the way home, the taxi stalled on the freeway in the righthand lane. A drunk driver didnt see the car and pummeled the cab. His brother walked away with few injuries. But Price didnt. Not only did he suffer a few broken bones, but the crash also shocked his spinal cord. Now, the 29-year-old is paralyzed from the muscles and wiggle his toes, but he cannot use his legs. Theres no real way of knowing if my legs will come back, Price said. He began to miss his monthly meetings in the business program. A few of his classmates in his cohort of about 65 students began to notice. Prices friend German Escallon heard about Prices injuries from another classmate. Escallon, who is currently working on building brother, decided to rally their classmates to support Price. Were closer than most of the cohorts, the 29-year-old UF alumnus said. We really developed something special. Escallon heard about Prices friends sponsoring a golf tournament in his name, but he wanted to do something within the UF community. He started MBAs for Matt and began a GiveForward page to collect donations for Prices hospital bills. Price attends in-patient therapy week for the next month. For the rest of the year, he must undergo about days a week. The therapy bills add up, and Price has to pay out of pocket. His hospital stay alone was $300,000. In just two weeks, Escallon raised $6,669 for Price, which surpassed the goal of $5,000. We were overwhelmed by the support that we received, Escallon said. At the programs graduation reception held in the Touchdown Terrace April 14, Price was given a signed picture of Novak Djokovic with a personal message from the tennis pro. To get a picture that is signed by my favorite tennis player and having him hear my story really meant a lot to me, Price said.

I probably used it as a way to plug TSF more times than what should be legally possible, so I followed my previous TSF/Alligator brethren.

10, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffBoth 32-ounce jugs and one-gallon jugs of beer, sold at Swamp Head Brewery, are legal container sizes in Florida. Lobbyists are trying to legalize the 64-ounce size beverages. ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterFloridas beer industry is on tap for new legislation involving the sizing of jugs of beer, commonly known as growlers, sold at breweries. Due to an old state law, brewery patrons can legally purchase as many 32-ounce and 1-gallon growlers as theyd like, but though thats the industry standard in most other states. Mitch Rubin, a lobbyist for the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association, opposed the 64-ounce containers. He said he spoke against the bills to protect the three-tiered system of beer distribution. In the system, distributors act as middlemen between retailers and brewers. They exist to stop vertical integration among the retailers, the distributors and the brewers, Rubin said. Swamp Head Brewery, in particular, has voiced its opinion on the subject on its website, where it states that people who seek to buy beer can choose between the giganto gallon jug or the Red Stripe on steroids 32 oz. growler. Swamp Head credits this policy to an antiquated Florida law. In the coming year, we plan on pushing for new legislation to legalize the 64-ounce container, Rubin said. Our main concern lies in closing the loopholes currently open in the system. Casey Davis, a 21-year-old UF accounting senior, said he thinks the system is ecoIf the bigger one is cheaper compared to the lower size, then Id want to buy the bigger one, he said, even if I wasnt goFlorida beer brewers want to fill their growlers to the top In the coming year, we plan on pushing for new legislation to legalize the 64-ounce container.Mitch RubinLobbyist for the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association ITEMS WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE ODOME.

12, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 STATE KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff WriterMichael Terry clearly remembers the hours before his friends died in the early morning of October 16, 2011. They were at Froggys Saloon in Daytona during Biketober Fest. Terrys cee Allison Sellers were getting ready to leave at about 1 a.m. Terry tried to get them to stay the night, but Remonsanzol wanted to sleep in his own bed at home in Sanford. Then they said their goodbyes. At about 2:30 a.m., Terry received a call from Remonsanzol. The couple were at Dennys eating breakfast. They were safe, Remonsanzol said over the phone. Terry didnt know that was the last time he would talk to his friend. He didnt know that about two hours later, an SUV would drive up behind the couple riding on Remonsanzols motorcycle on Interstate 4 and hit them. He didnt know that Sellers, 32, would hit the shoulder, dying on impact, and the road and get run over over by multiple cars before he died. I really couldnt comprehend it that well, Terry, 45, said, that it happened to my friends of all of the people out there. Remonsanzol and Sellers were part of 8,621 people involved in motorcycle crashes in 2011 in Florida, an increase of 15 percent from 2010, according to the most recent data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. From 2000 to 2010, the number of motorcycle crashes and injuries increased overall, according to a study from the Florida Department of Transportation and the University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research. Chanyoung Lee, a senior researcher at the USF center, said this spike could be the product of a few reasons. Motorcycle registration has more than doubled in the 10-year period, he said. And in 2000, Florida passed a law that allowed motorcyclists over the age of 21 to ride without a helmet if they had at least a $10,000 insurance policy, he said. Motorcyclists have a much higher risk of crashing on their own as well, Lee said. About 30 percent of motorcycle crashes do not involve a second vehicle. However, in cases of two-vehicle crashes like Remonsanzols and Sellers, automobile drivers were found to be at fault about 60 percent of the time. Lee said car drivers dont expect to see a motorcycle and underestimate how much space it takes up on the road. People have a tendency to make a judgment based on the size of the object, he said. Back at the scene of the crash, Florida Highway Patrol troopers could not monsanzol and Sellers. to the accident recognized a 2007 Ford Explorer that matched the description of the vehicle involved in the crash pulled over on the side of a road off Interstate 4 not far from the accident.

Using a mathematical process called found that her BAC level at the time of the crash was .095. The legal limit is .08, according to Florida Highway Patrol. After a year-and-a-half-long FHP to the crash. She now faces two counts of DUI manslaughter and two counts of leaving the scene of a fatal crash, among other charges. And after a year and a half, Remonsanzols and Sellers family and friends are still reeling. It was so painful I still cant even believe it, said Sellers best friend of 26 years, Samantha Schmidt, who vacationed with Sellers just two weeks before her death. She wont even touch a motorcycle. Schmidts father, Greg Bush, 64, and Terry were in the process of building a bike for Sellers. Now, it wont be ridden, he said. Bush still rides his own motorcycle but looks behind him more often after the accident. Since the crash, Terry remembers the hours before he lost his friends. He wonders, too, about what wouldve happened if he left with Sellers and Remonsanzol that night. Maybe if I couldve been there, I couldve helped out, he said. Maybe I wouldve died. You just never know.Florida motorcycle crashes increase THE TEAM WON A TOTAL OF $13,500. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Contributing Writer Works Challenge in the large institution category. The team that represented UF earned $2,500 and an $11,000 grant to monitor the improvements of its design. The challenge required the 218 teams of aspiring landscape architects, planners and engineers to design an innovative green infrastructure system that would reduce stormwater pollution and support sustainable communities. The winners were selected after three rounds by a team of 33 judges. UFs team consisted of 12 students studying landscape architecture, environmental engineering and agricultural and biological engineering. Glenn Acomb, landscape architecture senior lecturer and faculty adviser, said he found out about the challenge last summer and thought it was right up their alley. Landscape architecture is, in many ways, a unique blend of art and science, he said. So green infrastructure is an integral part of what we do. The team chose the North Lawn as the site of its project. Landscape architecture senior and team project manager Emily Sturm said the project dealt with cleaning the stormwater from the lawn during its journey to Lake Alice. The inspiration behind our design was conveying the journey of water, Sturm, 23, said. She said the proposal would lead to cleaner water. The team was honored at the ceremony with the EPA on Monday. Its designs are now on the EPAs website. The students were commenting that its another national championship for the Gators, Acomb said. They were really quite proud.UF takes first in rain challenge It was so painful I still cant even believe it.Samantha Schmidtfriend of Allison Sellers

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 Elise Giordano / Alligator Staff ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator WriterOn Monday, Gov. Rick Scott signed the Career and Professional Education Act, which will boost education in public schools, community colleges and universities. The legislation will enable state universities to qualify as preeminent research universities, and receive additional money for online initiatives and high-tech degree programs. Based on student performance, retention rates, research spending and national rankings, UF has met the requirements to be named a preeminent research university, and will receive additional funds. Jen Belew, a 22-year-old elementary education junior, said she thought using the money to add more online classes would help students who cant commute to campus. UF President Bernie Machen said the bill will help the university achieve its goal of becoming a top 10 university, according to a news release. key pieces we need to head down that road, he said according to the news release. Thanks to the vision of House Speaker Will Weatherford, it also awards UF the state online degree institute and puts us at the forefront of online learning. The legislation will enable state colleges to offer degrees for $10,000, according to a news release on Scotts website. All of the 23 Florida community colleges that have a bachelors degree program have accepted Scotts proposal to offer services for that price. Katie Stults, a 21-year-old elementary education junior, said she thought the lower costs could affect college departments resources. But ultimately, I think its a great thing, she said.

Upgrading would require $85,000 to get digital equipment. The family has been working to garner pledges through an online fundraising page on Kickstarter to buy a digital projector to replace the reel projector, which dates back to the 1940s. The website keeps track of contributors but doesnt withdraw the money from their accounts until the end date of the campaign. If the Alligoods dont reach the goal by June 3, all of the pledges will be erased. Its all, or none, said Alan Alligood, Janets husband. With 40 days left in the campaign, the theater has raised about $14,000.

According to data released last month by the Florida Department of Health, the county had a rate of 904.3 per 100,000 people, ranking it fourth behind Hamilton, Leon and Gadsden counties. The data showed 15to 24-year-olds are most affected. Teresa Mercado-White said chlamydia is the No. 1 STD affecting people in these age groups. Mercado-White, a minority AIDS coordinator for the Alachua County Health Department, said the rate is high because of the increase in the number of people getting tested. People are passing it around like pudding, she said. Samantha Evans, a sexual health educator with GatorWell Health Promotion Services, agreed. She said the more people who get tested, the larger the potential to see those tests come back positive. Evans said the high numbers of STDs may still be a reason for concern, adding that there needs to be continued support for educational programs. Continued funding and even more resources need to be available to the organizations with preventative programs, she said. Isis Barnes, a 20-year-old UF biology sophomore and the incoming president of Respect Yourself, Check Yourself, Protect Yourself Movement at UF, said students should receive sex education before attending college. Unfortunately, this is often not the case, she said.

18, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 Derek A. Smith / AlligatorTogether for A Better Gainesville with residents to discuss concerns and ideas regarding issues like public safety and transportation. NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterTwo years ago, as part of the City of Gainesvilles wellness initiative for their employees, the city began providing Zumba classes. The classes were originally in the Gainesville Regional Utilities center and held about 15 city employees. Within two classes, instructors Christiane Machado and Maria Adela Ramirez knew they had to expand. Soon after, the classes relocated to the Thelma A. Boltin Center, located at 516 NE Second Ave. With a larger location, authorities agreed to open the Zumba classes to the public sistance from the city due to liabilities. Both sides the city and the instructors compromised that every person had to sign a waiver to participate. Months after the classes opened to the public, children started attending with their parents. As part of the contract with the Zumba instructors and the city, no children were allowed for safety reasons. Machado said since the classes began, no accidents occurred until April 15 when an adult student slipped. Complaints about children attending led to a disagreement between the instructors and the Risk Management Department, which funded the classes. Rod Clark, Program Coordinator for the City of Gainesville, contacted Machado to cancel the classes April 15. Our job is to reduce the risk of people getting hurt, he said. Machado and Ramrez took the issue to the city. On Thursday, about 60 supporters marched to the Gainesville City Commission and gave emotional testimonies, including someone who overcame the effects of a stroke after they started attending Zumba classes. Zumba gives you a rush we all say we get high off of Zumba, Machado said. The commission passed a motion to keep classes the going. City Commissioner Todd Chase donated part of his 5 percent raise to continue the program. The classes will be on hiatus from April 30 to May 15. Once classes resume, the city will require participants to donate between $1 and $5 for the class, Machado said. Chases donation will be placed in a scholarship fund for those who cannot afford the class. Now, children are allowed to attend the class. It was the work of all of us, Machado said. We just want to shake our tail feathers. We dont want to do no harm.City Zumba classes encounter issues REGISTRATION IS $50. ALYSSA NIEVESAlligator Contributing WriterIn about a week, the streets of Midtown and downtown will be packed with people ready to party. The 31st annual Gator Stompin hosted by the Pledge 5 Foundation will from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. May 2. It used to be just a pub crawl, but its a lot more than that now, said Jason Bowman, the foundations director. He said about 100 restaurants, bars and nightclubs will participate this year to accommodate the estimated 10,000 attendees. Everyone who registers for the event will receive a T-shirt and 10 tokens that can be used to purchase drinks and food, Bowman said. Registration is $50. Gator Stompin supports various local charities, but the majority of the money will go to the Pledge 5 Foundation. Were growing almost quicker than we can keep up with, but as long as people keep coming to our events and giving back to the community, I think were headed in the right direction, Bowman said. He said there will be a safe-ride program and shuttle system running that night. Tony Riggio, a 20-year-old UF entomology and nematology junior, said he had always been under the impression that participants had to be at least 21 years old. Now that I know that there are a lot of things for me to do that dont going, he said.31st Gator Stompin set for May 2Bowman Zumba gives you a rush, we all say we get high off of Zumba.Christiane MachadoZumba instructor

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 25 END OF GREGULATION If youve read just about anything Ive written during my four years with alligatorSports, youre probably expecting a lot of numbers in this space. I hate to disappoint, but I have just one: name appears in a byline, podcast or video show for the Alligator. Most of those have been packed with references to KenPom, cfbstats.com and My appreciation for the numbers isnt as simple as the clich that they never lie. In reality, numbers are the only things that keep me sane. Theyre the key to my longer spending all my time worrying about what other people think. When I was a freshman at UF, I played a LOT of online poker. After a high school career in Connecticut agonizing about what was cool and how I was viewed, I got to come to UF and be alone. At the end of my freshman year, I only knew the names of maybe a dozen non-athletes. And I absolutely loved it. I still had all my friends from back home, but down here nobody was watching. I could do whatever I wanted. For a time that meant at least 40 hours each week of poker, not counting the class ing hand histories on PokerStove. I havent found anything more mentally stimulating than getting inside a persons step ahead. The game works the way life should: You get a set of rules that everyone has to play by, and you work to master them and develop a style that allows you to acquire equity and ultimately be the best you can be. More than that, poker taught me the most valuable lesson Ive ever learned: You can do everything right and still fail, and you have to accept that. You can make perfect move after perfect move after perfect move for seven or eight hours, and if youre lucky youll get everything in the middle as a 56 percent favorite. Then theres the times you do everything right and the other guy just happens to have aces. Or the times you get it in ahead, the dealer brings an unlucky turn and you lose anyway. Sounds pretty depressing, right? I mean, why bother to do things the right way if all of life is just a game of chance? To me, the difference between winners and losers in poker and in the real world is that desire and willingness to scratch and claw to make sure the chance of success is 56 percent instead of 53. That extra of everyday life, and the vast majority of the time its completely invisible. But I have enough faith in the numbers to believe itll bear itself out in the long run. In the meantime, I can take comfort in the fact that Im always doing everything I can to give myself the best chance to succeed at whatever Im trying to do, and that Im being true to myself within that process. With a genuine belief in that system, everything that goes wrong in life is pretty easy to deal with. Its just variance. Bad luck. That being said, I refuse to sit here at age 22 and pretend for a second live. Im in no position to give advice. Im just trying to learn something new and get a little bit better every day. But that faith in the odds has gotten me through every bit of adversity Ive faced in a relatively cushy life. When a girl doesnt want to go out with me, I shake it off. When is a shot like that any better than 30 or 40 percent anyway? When my best friend decided to become a stranger without warning, it was a bad break. I still approach friendship the same way I always have, and Im still there for anyone who needs me. But enough about the bad. Ive also had some unbelievable streaks of good luck, like being given a shot at the Alligator and meeting all of the great people Im about to thank. To me, this whole student-paper-goodbye-column thing makes about as much sense as a recently called-up Triple-A player doing a press conference to say a teary and heartfelt farewell to the International League. But if Im given space to thank all the people who put me where I am today and made life worth it, Im going to take advantage. Thanks to Phil Kegler, Kyle Maistri and Bobby Callovi for hiring me and giving me a chance back in Fall 2009. To Adam Berry for showing me the ropes and, as recently as yesterday, making some To Chiang, Tyler, Tom, Watts, Boothe, Joe and Phil for editing my stuff despite a blatant lack of regard for inch counts. (This column is already longer than it should be.) To Corey, Fink and the rest of the copy staff for putting up with my ridiculous numbers. To my parents for giving me every opportunity I could ever dream of, to my boys from Connecticut for keeping it a place I can call home, and to Katie for indulging my obsession with Hayley Williams. To my roommates at The Stables, who are always good for some BSing and will at least pretend to care when I theorize about beer pong advanced metrics. (I still contend that shooting percentage on shots that hit plastic, like batting average on balls in play ure based on your shooting form.) To stats for making my life possible, even as I all but abandon poker and probability to pursue a career with words. And to any of you who made it through my long-winded, usually stat-packed ramAfter four long years, this truly is the End of Gregulation. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

His tenure as the Speedo-waving, moosein 1988. At age 46, Davis was training for the FINA World Masters Championships. He swam laps in the OConnell Centers outdoor pool nearly every night. Davis struggles to pinpoint the game when it all began, but he believes it was UFs 83-76 win against Kentucky on Feb. 20, 1988. Back in 88, basketball attendance and ODome security were not what they are today. After he was done with his laps, Davis stopped in to check out the game, carrying his swim bag into a mostly empty arena. Davis row behind the basket by the home bench, just a seat or two left of center. When the Wildcats stepped to the line to attempt a foul shot, Davis glanced to his bag. In what he says was just a spur of the moment thing, he reached in, grabbed the green, stillwet Speedo and began waving it around. The guy looked at it and was like, What in the world? Davis recalls. I said, If it works, youve got to do it. The tradition was born. Nearly 24 years later, everything about Davis and his shtick has evolved. The crowds have ballooned, a following has grown and the Speedo has changed. When opposing free-throw shooters step to the line, students yell, Look at the Moose! and wave cardboard cutouts of Bullwinkle. In the row behind Davis, a season-ticket holder with a New York accent shouts Look at the Moose panties! although Davis would point out that panties and a Speedo are very different things. Hed never want to trumpet something so racy at an event with so many children. You want to try this on? he shouts at the unsuspecting shooter. Usually, they ignore him. The good ones always do. But every once in a while, a younger player will give him a wink or a smile. Concentration broken. Mission accomplished. Davis earned his undergraduate degree in physical education at UF in 1963, back when the Gators played at the Florida Gymnasium. mately decided not to pursue a doctorate, but if he did he says he would have written his thesis on sports psychology. For all the spontaneity in its creation, the Davis wears the same thing to every home game jeans and a white Gators button down. In a sea of orange and blue, the contrast of the white is meant to attract attention. When the OConnell Center added new seats last season, Davis was stuck on the opposite side. He quickly asked to be switched back. He wasnt comfortable on the other side. The Moose will work best if he can get to the opponent early, Davis thought. mind games begin. You held it a little too tight, youve got to get it a little looser, Davis shouts. Your elbows were out that time. it wasnt. Either way, the seeds of doubt are planted. If you can break up that routine a little bit, Davis says, theyve got a chance. Although Davis has met Florida coach Billy Donovan and even had him sign a basketball, the two have never discussed Davis role as Moose. Billys got enough to worry about, Davis said. Instead, those conversations are reserved for Billys dad, William, who always gets a rise out of Davis antics. For many years, William knew Davis only as the guy with the Moose head and stuff. coaching basketball at Queen of Peace, a K-8 school in Gainesville where Davis is the volgame, all of the pieces fell into place. When I realized it was Ron, I started to get a kick out of it, William said. Im telling you, hes hot stuff. Gainesville High tennis coach Paul Spradling has season tickets for seats 3 and 4 to the vis post. Davis and his wife of 45 years, Alicia, are actually ticketed for Row 10, but Spradling Seats 1 and 2 behind the basket rarely ever sell. Seeing around the hoop structure is nearly impossible. No one ever fusses about Davis snagging those seats and doing his routine.

Its like ambiance or something, Spradling said. Its part of the atmosphere. Weve got this crazy joker with a moose hat on. During free throws, that is. In normal game action, Davis stays mostly silent. Hes honed in. Hes like a mortician, Spradling said. Quiet as a church mouse. When its time for him to stand up, hes right up there doing it. When the Moose stirs, the student section takes notice. Davis says fans usually girls still approach him before, during and after most games to have their picture taken next to him. At one game in the early 2000s, Davis was approached by the mother of Gators great David Lee. The guys really love what you do out there, she told him. That moment was as close as he ever came to hearing from a coach or player, regardless of the connection to coach Donovans father and wife, Christine, who keeps score for the volleyball teams at Queen of Peace. But Davis doesnt need recognition he does the Moose routine for fun. If anything, he would like for his wife to be able to meet Billy Donovans daughter, Hasbrouck, so the two could discuss horses. Davis and his wife breed, raise and sell horses from their farm in Newberry. They own nine, with another expected to be born in the near future. They also have one in Kentucky that Alicia, who stewards competitions and has been showing horses since she was 12, will be riding in competition this week. Hasbrouck is attending Auburn on an equestrian scholarship. Shes a horse person, and my wife is a horse person, Davis said. Getting those two together would be interesting. Before the Moose was unleashed on the Southeastern Conference, an Davis and his wife were there on vacation sometime in the mid-90s, and Davis wanted to pick up a gift for his son, Christopher. The plush moose hat was perfect. The small central dome was colored the deep brown of moose fur. Small, tan, pillowy antlers stuck out from the sides. The hat was hardly bulky Davis neatly tucks it away between foul shots but it was still too large to be packed in his stuffed airplane luggage. So Davis did the only logical thing: He wore it around the airport. I see people turning their heads looking like, What in the world? Davis said. And I said, You know what? This might work at the basketball game. The Speedo changed through the years the current model is too small for him to ever wear, just something used he bought but the hat has remained constant. of a superfan, Davis sheepishly admits his attendance record is far from spotless. Just last year he missed a game to go snowmobiling with his family in West Yellowstone. He also misses most of the road games, instead just pacing his living room as he watches on TV. If its a close game, I walk more, Davis said. No need for any silly superstitions or traditions. I cant affect the game, Davis said. His only prop is a Velcro referee doll with a plastic yellow whistle and removable head and limbs. Alicia bought it for him, hoping to give him a healthy way to let off his frustrations. If something doesnt go his way, Davis has been known to send the head careening across the room. It doesnt hurt the TV, Davis said. During his 28 years as a high school swim coach, Davis worked with many different programs around Florida. His team at Gainesville High was one of the rade, and he got the Gainesville East Side program off the ground with a squad of just four boys and one girl. He ultimately coached about eight All-Americans. After more than 36 years teaching physical education at public schools, Davis grew fed up with the class sizes, retired and started at ible, he runs things his way, and he doesnt have to go to any meetings he doesnt want to. From a cluttered feet at the corner of the gym, Davis handles scheduling and makes sure all of the little details are taken care of every event has a trash can and somebody to handle concessions. He still does Masters swimming, although the intensity has dropped from 1988. That year he traveled to Brisbane, Australia, for the champiwater polo and taking on a grueling swim schedule that culminated in breast stroke, his best event. His swims today are more casual and infrequent, but even at age 71 he doesnt intend to stop anytime soon. I want to swim in that 100-plus age group, he said. In the meantime, hes still around Queen of Peace, keeping the athletics in order. But only in the afternoon in the morning he and his wife feed the horses and clean out their stalls. And, of course, hes still going to basketball games, which hes attended almost religiously since the OConnell Center opened in 1980. Always behind the basket, always with the Speedo and moose hat. The students expect it, so I almost have to be there, Davis said. If I get one foul shot missed, it may not be because of the moose, but they think it is. And I think it is.
