The Whispering Close sculpture the last remaining part of the $35,000 Crossing Paths exhibition by Seward Johnson that came to campus in June 2011 was broken down into pieces and lifted by crane onto a truck that hauled them away. Jenee Castellanos, associate curator of the Sculpture Foundation that loaned UF the statue, said the loan had expired. The piece will return to the artists studio in New Jersey for restoration. Castellanos said the loan on that particular statue inspired by Impressionist painter PierreAuguste Renoirs Dance in the City was extended by the university due to positive feedback. Its been here since I started at UF, said Mitchell Smith, a 20-year-old UF food and resource economics sophomore. Its been part of my experience here, and I hate to see it go. But not everyone felt the same way. In September 2011, Gainesvilles chapter of Students for a Democratic Society looped a bright yellow price tag around the landmark statue in protest of tuition hikes. Last Fall, LGBTQ-straight alliance organization OwnUp staged a queer Sadie Hawkins dance underneath it to protest heteronormativity. Taylor Lilly, a 19-year-old UF natural resource conservation junior, said she was happy to see the statue leave. I hope they put something prettier there instead, Lilly said.

The suburban Chicago mom was heading to the hospital to give birth. She got as far as the hospitals driveway, but her daughter just wasnt going to wait any longer to come into the world. While nurses rushed out and her children looked on, Jones delivered her baby in the familys minivan Thursday just feet from the front door of Northwesterns Prentice Womens Hospital in downtown Chicago. A doctor leaving work assisted with the front-seat delivery, calling out for gloves and blankets. All I could do was hold onto the dashboard and the side of the car and push, said 30-year-old Jones of Calumet City. Earlier that evening, Jones was at work as a restaurant cashier at a downtown Chicago hotel when she started having ce, Marcus Ross, and asked him to come get her, then made sure one more customer got his order, a milkshake. Meanwhile, Ross put the four children in the couples minivan and headed into the city. The plan was to head to the suburban hospital where theyd planned to deliver. His mother would meet them there and theyd hand off the children to her. But it was soon clear the baby wasnt going to wait long enough to get to the suburbs. With contractions getting stronger and closer, they drove to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital campus and searched for the correct entrance. Jones expects her daughter 6-pound-8-ounce Mariah Faith Ross will be an unstoppable child because of the way she came into the world. Shes going to give me a run for the money, Jones said. She made a grand entrance. The other children, Jones said, now know for sure where babies come from. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSphysical.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no ofmade. Even when Tebow signs, there is no guarantee he will play for the Patriots. Tebow would sign with New England. Asked if Tebow had signed, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight. Revitalizing Tebows career would be another big step toward humiliating New Englands archrival. Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy Brown, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater as defensive backs when injuries hit that position. Belichick also has been willing to gamble on players discarded by other teams. Some have succeeded, like wide receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss and running back Danny Woodhead. Some havent, including wide receiver Chad Johnson and defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth.Swedish male train drivers wear skirts to work STOCKHOLM Commuters on a train line in northern Stockholm were met with an unusual sight this week: male train drivers and conductors wearing skirts to work.

STEIN MART IS SET TO CLOSE AUG. 27. MICHAELA BISIENEREAlligator Contributing WriterStein Mart, at 6111 Newberry Road, announced it will close its doors, and a new Hobby Lobby craft store is expected to take its place. The Jacksonville-based department store Stein Mart closes Aug. 27, said Linda Tasseff, the Stein Mart director of investor relations. Tasseff said the decision to close the store was a business choice. We were at the end of a lease term, and the store wasnt meeting expectations, Tasseff said. She said she couldnt pinpoint the number for the job losses that will result from the store closing. We employ about 40 employees there, Tasseff said. We always do try to relocate people when possible. Hobby Lobby Spokesman Vinthat Gainesville residents can expect a Hobby Lobby in 2014. According to Alachua County Clerk of Court records, Hobby Lobby signed a memorandum of lease agreement with the current property owners. Laurel Marois, a 19-year-old UF history junior, said she thinks the store will improve the selection of materials in Gainesville beyond what is currently available at local craft stores. We have a lack of craft stores, and there are a lot of people who do that kind of stuff, said Marois, who frequently makes scrapbooks and crafts for her sorority sisters. People are all buying the same things, and orange and blue stuff is always sold out, she said. Maria Collins, a 20-year-old UF history junior, said she thinks Hobby Lobby will be a better choice than Stein Mart for the location. I dont usually shop there unless Im with my mom, Collins said. Within my age group, most likely they wouldnt be too sad (about the closing).Hobby Lobby to replace Stein Mart near Oaks Mall in 2014 ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgJury selection began Monday in the Seminole County murder trial of George Zimmerman a case that has sparked national debate for the past year.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, and he said he was just deZimmerman was the self-appointed neighborhood watchman and called 911 several times with complaints of a suspicious black man. Police did not initially arrest Zimmerman after the shooting because they said he was acting in self-defense. Because racial stereotyping may have played a role in Martins death, the case has received national media coverage and brought attention to the stand your ground law, gun choosing the six jurors could take weeks. Jennifer Zedalis, a UF Levin College of Law senior legal skills professor and director of trial learn or set aside information they know about Because of the national interest in the case, jury selection is very challenging, she said. You want to get jurors to hear a case who dont come into the case with a strike against you already. To ensure a fair trial, lawyers are questioning possible jurors on what media they have consumed. They are also asked if they have ever participated in a rally, if they recognize any lawyers from TV and if they have strong feelings about the case. Bob Dekle, a UF Levin College of Law senior legal skills professor and criminal prosecution clinic director, said the trial itself could take longer than two weeks. It remains to be seen how its going to play out in front of a jury, he said. In Gainesville, several students have been vocal about their opinions about the shooting. Skye Schmelzer, a 21-year-old UF history senior and member of the Gainesville chapter of the Students for a Democratic Society, helped organize a local rally demanding justice for the Martin family. Schmelzer said she was glad to see the trial begin but was upset Zimmermans defense team was trying to stereotype Martin. The best thing that could result is that it Trayvon deserves justice, Schmelzer said.

TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Following the Indiana Pacers Game 6 victory in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on June 1, star center Roy Hibbert made comments that many people deemed offensive. When asked about assisting teammate Paul George with guarding Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, according to Yahoo! Sports, Hibbert said, I really felt that I let Paul down in terms of having his back when LeBron was scoring in the post or getting to the paint, because they stretched me out so much. No homo. No homo is a slang expression used prominently in mainstream rap music and by young American males as a way of distancing themselves from words or actions that could be viewed as homosexual. After he released what appears to be a sincere apology, according to Yahoo! Sports. While I cannot begin to understand how hurtful homophobic slurs can be to members of the gay community, I believe categorizing Hibbert as a homophobic villain is overkill. The comments were certainly in poor taste and as someone in the spotlight, Hibbert should have known that joking about such a sensitive topic would not be warmly received. But to me, Hibberts no homo statement was nothing genuine beliefs with regard to homosexual lifestyle. Sure, he should have to accept the consequences, but there is simply no reason to villainize someone for making an off-the-cuff joke after winning the biggest game of his life. Comparatively, in an interview with shock jock Artie Lange prior to Super Bowl XLVII in January, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made comments drastically more malicious than Hibberts. According to Yahoo! Sports, Culliver said, ...we dont got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Cant be with that sweet stuff. Nahcant bein the locker room man. Nah. beliefs, Cullivers homophobic comments did not result in bert. It is apparent that any time an athlete says something of or whatever his comments may have implied. Certainly there should be backlash in instances where an athlete makes hateful and intolerant comments against a minority group such as with Culliver but I believe there needs to be discretion shown before society jumps down the throat of an athlete for his comments. I sincerely doubt, based on his buffoonery, anyone truly believes Hibbert is a homophobe. People give athletes too much credit. These guys are in the public eye for no reason other than superior physical talents. Calling their dumb jokes homophobic, for example, implies that they were using their stardom to subtly express personal beliefs, which I believe is highly unlikely. Some may argue that because professional athletes are often viewed as role models, they should behave as such. Well, I believe that people who view athletes as heroes need to change their perspective. The same way politicians are not elected based on their vertical leap or jump-shot accuracy, athletes words should not be analyzed with a Athletes line of work has them practicing their craft in a schoolyard-like atmosphere every day. This environment is one where joking and ridicule is a fact of life, and things be poorly received elsewhere. Professional athletes are the last people we should be looking toward for professionalism. If you want someone to be mad at, blame the politicians who are unwilling to give homosexuals equal rights not a guy getting paid to dunk a basketball who happened to make a bad joke.

The universitys orientation program was awarded with Outstanding Institutional Advising Program recognition in the 2013 National Advising Awards. It was one of two winners within the category. The University of Minnesota was also awarded for its Center for Academic Planning and Exploration. UF was awarded for Preview Orientation Advising, according to the website. The academic advising component has worked very hard on improving over the years, Joseph Spillane, director of UFs Academic Advising Center, wrote in an email. It is a real pleasure when all of that hard work is recognized on a national level. There are always new adaptations and components for Preview, and one reason it has been so successful is that the program constantly changes, he said. The experience of working with Preview is incredible and inspiring because of the connections we are able to make with students and families in a such a short time, said Preview Staffer Joyner Atiles-Lopez, a 21-year-old recreation, parks and tourism senior. The Preview staff works as a team and motivates its members throughout the day, he said. Preview was an amazing experience because it gave you a glimpse into what being a student at UF was going to be like, said Angelica Marino, a 19year-old UF public relations junior.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 MLB DRAFT ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterKarsten Whitson was the ninth overall selection in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft. The righthander out of Chipley turned down a $2.1 million offer from the San Diego Padres and instead went to Florida. Three years and a shoulder surgery later, Whitson was drafted again. This time, it was in the 37th round 1,126th overall by the Washington Nationals. Whitson was one of two Gators picked by the Nationals on Saturday, and one of four Florida players who have seen playing time this year picked on the second and third days of the MLB Draft. After the Detroit Tigers took junior pitcher Jonathon Crawford with the 20th overall pick in the to wait 190 picks before another Gator was selected. Left-handed reliever Daniel Gibson was second off the board, going 210th overall to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Gibson was 2-1 with a 4.42 ERA in 32 games in 2013, including a disasance of the year. In possibly his last appearance with the Gators, Gibson walked in the tying run and did not record an out in Floridas 5-4 loss to Valparaiso. After Gibson was selected, no Florida player was drafted for another 10 rounds. Johnny Magliozzi was the third Gator selected, going to the New York Mets 506th overall. The Mets er Matt Den Dekker in 2010 and pitcher Alex Panteliodis in 2011. Magliozzi started four games for the Gators in 2013, but spent most of the season as Floridas closer. He led the team with a 2.67 ERA and 12 saves. Magliozzi pitched Floridas last game of the year, going six innings and allowing four runs three of which were earned. Second off the board on Day Dent.

Ryan Jones/Alligator StaffPoint guard Scottie Wilbekin dribbles to the lane during Floridas 77-44 win against Georgia on Jan. 9 in WILBEKINS SUSPENSION IS HIS SECOND IN EIGHT LANDON WATNICK Alligator Staff Writer Scottie Wilbekins career at Florida has taken another misstep. Florida has suspended the rising senior point guard for violating team rules, the school announced Monday. UF did not release any further details. Under terms of suspension, Wilbekin will not be allowed to work out at the Florida basketball practice facility until he is reinstated. Wilbekins suspension is his second in eight months. He was suspended on Nov. 8 for breaking team rules. The 6-foot-2 guard missed UFs idas canceled matchup against Georgetown aboard the USS Bataan in Jacksonville on Nov. 9. He starts fresh and clean in my mind, coach Billy Donovan said aflifted. Although we did address the things he has done, I think Id be making the mistake as a coach to constantly keep holding onto that, because Im expecting him to move on and expecting him to be committed to himself, the team and the things he needs to do here. After Florida began the season 2-0, Wilbekin said the suspension was humbling. It proves Im not bigger than the team and no player is bigger than the team, he said. Wilbekin had a breakout season as a junior in 2012-13, averaging 9.1 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 31.9 minutes per game as UFs starting point guard. Heralded as one of UFs best on-ball defenders, he tallied a teambest 53 steals and was named to the Southeastern Conferences All-Defensive Team. Wilbekin is one of two starters returning to a UF team that reached the Elite Eight for the third straight year. If his suspension continues into the 2013-14 regular season, Floridas depth at point guard would be tested. With Braxton Ogbueze transferring to UNC Charlotte, the only other natural point guard the Gators cruit Kasey Hill. Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org. Point guard suspended CHUCK KINGSBURY Alligator Staff Writer Right-hander Tucker Simpson will transfer from Florida, a UF spokesman will be transferring to a junior college. Simpson created a Twitter handle on June 4. Members of the baseball program are prohibited from having a Twitter account unless if they signed professionally or are no longer with the team, according to the UF spokesman. At the same time players such as Jonathon Crawford were creating Twitter accounts upon going professional, Simpson posted on his account (@tsimp10): lycanhavetwitter Simpson will be eligible for the 2014 MLB Draft. Per MLB rules, junior college draft eligible. During his freshman season in 201213, Simpson appeared in 13 games rounded out his freshman season with a 1-2 record and 4.79 ERA. In 35.2 innings, he walked 15 batters and struck out 29. His ERA was last only to freshman Eric Hanholds 5.88. The 6-foot-6 Simpson was ranked as the 62nd-best righthanded pitcher in the nation, according to ESPNs 2012 position rankings. Simpson played high school ball at Oxford High in Oxford, Ala., where he was ranked as the No. 1 right-hander and the No. 4 player in the state of Alabama in 2012. Simpsons last appearance came against Georgia on May 17, where he pitched 1.1 frames and surrendered two walks after relieving freshman Parker Danciu in the bottom of the seventh.

For the second straight year, the MLB Draft has sucked the best talent away from Gainesville. The season ended badly for the Gators, and a NCAA Regional appearance might not look so bad next June. Coming into 2013, everyone knew Florida would be in for a bumpy ride. The power hitters and dominant pitchers who took the Gators to three straight College World Series were all gone, leaving behind a young roster with few upperclassmen. eral of those upperclassmen are gone. Vickash Ramjit, one of the few consistent bats on a team starved for offense, leaves after a senior season where he hit .277 with four tion of a major league squad. in and day out, even if his .169 average didnt do the trick. But the offense will be OK. Richie Martin, Harrison Bader, Casey Turgeon, Justin Shafer and Taylor Gushue will all be back. The real damage is to the pitching. The offense struggled in 2013, but it was powerful compared to the pitching staff. Jonathon Crawford was the only consistent arm in the rotation. Hes gone. But dont worry; hell be nearby. Crawford will likely be assigned to the Flying Tigers, only a little more than two hours from McKethan Stadium. Crawford struggled in 2013 and only won three games, but he started 15. No other pitcher started more than eight. But Detroit saw enough potential to snap him up 20th overall, higher than several experts had him ly no chance Crawford ever returns to UF. All the other pitchers who rotated in and with injuries, command or just bad outings. Jay Carmichael looked solid in the rotation and was even promoted to Friday startthe year in the bullpen.

didnt prove enough to be guaranteed spots in the rotation next year. Sophomore right-hander Johnny Magliozzi was eligible for the draft due to a close-in-age rule, and the New York Mets picked him 506th overall. Whether that will be high enough to sway Magliozzi into pitching minor league ball is unknown. The sophomore had the best season of any Gators pitcher, notching a 2.67 ERA in mostly bullpen appearances. With another similar season or better especially if coach Kevin OSullivan moves him to the rotation permanently Magliozzi could see his draft But a chance to get a deal done now and jump into the professional ranks might convince the UF closer. If it does, Florida will be in bad shape. But there is some potential help coming off the disabled list. Juniors Karsten Whitson and Keenan Kish pitched nal year of eligibility to prove to pro teams that he still has gas in the tank. With his injury history, theres no If Whitson and Kish come back at full strength, the Gators will have a chance to compete again. If not, it could get ugly quickly at McKethan Stadium.

The suburban Chicago mom was heading to the hospital to give birth. She got as far as the hospitals driveway, but her daughter just wasnt going to wait any longer to come into the world. While nurses rushed out and her children looked on, Jones delivered her baby in the familys minivan Thursday just feet from the front door of Northwesterns Prentice Womens Hospital in downtown Chicago. A doctor leaving work assisted with the front-seat delivery, calling out for gloves and blankets. All I could do was hold onto the dashboard and the side of the car and push, said 30-year-old Jones of Calumet City. Earlier that evening, Jones was at work as a restaurant cashier at a downtown Chicago hotel when she started having ce, Marcus Ross, and asked him to come get her, then made sure one more customer got his order, a milkshake. Meanwhile, Ross put the four children in the couples minivan and headed into the city. The plan was to head to the suburban hospital where theyd planned to deliver. His mother would meet them there and theyd hand off the children to her. But it was soon clear the baby wasnt going to wait long enough to get to the suburbs. With contractions getting stronger and closer, they drove to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital campus and searched for the correct entrance. Jones expects her daughter 6-pound-8-ounce Mariah Faith Ross will be an unstoppable child because of the way she came into the world. Shes going to give me a run for the money, Jones said.

Asked if Tebow had signed, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight. Revitalizing Tebows career would be another big step toward humiliating New Englands archrival. Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy Brown, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater as defensive backs when injuries hit that position. Belichick also has been willing to gamble on players discarded by other teams. Some have succeeded, like wide receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss and running back Danny Woodhead.

STEIN MART IS SET TO CLOSE AUG. 27. MICHAELA BISIENEREAlligator Contributing WriterStein Mart, at 6111 Newberry Road, announced it will close its doors, and a new Hobby Lobby craft store is expected to take its place. The Jacksonville-based department store Stein Mart closes Aug. 27, said Linda Tasseff, the Stein Mart director of investor relations. Tasseff said the decision to close the store was a business choice. We were at the end of a lease term, and the store wasnt meeting expectations, Tasseff said. She said she couldnt pinpoint the number for the job losses that will result from the store closing. We employ about 40 employees there, Tasseff said. We always do try to relocate people when possible. Hobby Lobby Spokesman Vinthat Gainesville residents can expect a Hobby Lobby in 2014. According to Alachua County Clerk of Court records, Hobby Lobby signed a memorandum of lease agreement with the current property owners. Laurel Marois, a 19-year-old UF history junior, said she thinks the store will improve the selection of materials in Gainesville beyond what is currently available at local craft stores. We have a lack of craft stores, and there are a lot of people who do that kind of stuff, said Marois, who frequently makes scrapbooks and crafts for her sorority sisters. People are all buying the same things, and orange and blue stuff is always sold out, she said. Maria Collins, a 20-year-old UF history junior, said she thinks Hobby Lobby will be a better choice than Stein Mart for the location. I dont usually shop there unless Im with my mom, Collins said. Within my age group, most likely they wouldnt be too sad (about the closing).Hobby Lobby to replace Stein Mart near Oaks Mall in 2014 ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Staff Writeravolland@alligator.orgJury selection began Monday in the Seminole County murder trial of George Zimmerman a case that has sparked national debate for the past year.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, and he said he was just deZimmerman was the self-appointed neighborhood watchman and called 911 several times with complaints of a suspicious black man. Police did not initially arrest Zimmerman after the shooting because they said he was acting in self-defense. Because racial stereotyping may have played a role in Martins death, the case has received national media coverage and brought attention to the stand your ground law, gun choosing the six jurors could take weeks. Jennifer Zedalis, a UF Levin College of Law senior legal skills professor and director of trial learn or set aside information they know about Because of the national interest in the case, jury selection is very challenging, she said. You want to get jurors to hear a case who dont come into the case with a strike against you already. To ensure a fair trial, lawyers are questioning possible jurors on what media they have consumed. They are also asked if they have ever participated in a rally, if they recognize any lawyers from TV and if they have strong feelings about the case. Bob Dekle, a UF Levin College of Law senior legal skills professor and criminal prosecution clinic director, said the trial itself could take longer than two weeks. It remains to be seen how its going to play out in front of a jury, he said. In Gainesville, several students have been vocal about their opinions about the shooting. Skye Schmelzer, a 21-year-old UF history senior and member of the Gainesville chapter of the Students for a Democratic Society, helped organize a local rally demanding justice for the Martin family. Schmelzer said she was glad to see the trial begin but was upset Zimmermans defense team was trying to stereotype Martin. The best thing that could result is that it Trayvon deserves justice, Schmelzer said.

TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Following the Indiana Pacers Game 6 victory in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on June 1, star center Roy Hibbert made comments that many people deemed offensive. When asked about assisting teammate Paul George with guarding Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, according to Yahoo! Sports, Hibbert said, I really felt that I let Paul down in terms of having his back when LeBron was scoring in the post or getting to the paint, because they stretched me out so much. No homo. No homo is a slang expression used prominently in mainstream rap music and by young American males as a way of distancing themselves from words or actions that could be viewed as homosexual. After he released what appears to be a sincere apology, according to Yahoo! Sports. While I cannot begin to understand how hurtful homophobic slurs can be to members of the gay community, I believe categorizing Hibbert as a homophobic villain is overkill. The comments were certainly in poor taste and as someone in the spotlight, Hibbert should have known that joking about such a sensitive topic would not be warmly received. But to me, Hibberts no homo statement was nothing genuine beliefs with regard to homosexual lifestyle. Sure, he should have to accept the consequences, but there is simply no reason to villainize someone for making an off-the-cuff joke after winning the biggest game of his life. Comparatively, in an interview with shock jock Artie Lange prior to Super Bowl XLVII in January, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made comments drastically more malicious than Hibberts. According to Yahoo! Sports, Culliver said, ...we dont got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Cant be with that sweet stuff. Nahcant bein the locker room man. Nah. beliefs, Cullivers homophobic comments did not result in bert. It is apparent that any time an athlete says something of or whatever his comments may have implied. Certainly there should be backlash in instances where an athlete makes hateful and intolerant comments against a minority group such as with Culliver but I believe there needs to be discretion shown before society jumps down the throat of an athlete for his comments. I sincerely doubt, based on his buffoonery, anyone truly believes Hibbert is a homophobe. People give athletes too much credit. These guys are in the public eye for no reason other than superior physical talents. Calling their dumb jokes homophobic, for example, implies that they were using their stardom to subtly express personal beliefs, which I believe is highly unlikely. Some may argue that because professional athletes are often viewed as role models, they should behave as such. Well, I believe that people who view athletes as heroes need to change their perspective. The same way politicians are not elected based on their vertical leap or jump-shot accuracy, athletes words should not be analyzed with a Athletes line of work has them practicing their craft in a schoolyard-like atmosphere every day. This environment is one where joking and ridicule is a fact of life, and things be poorly received elsewhere. Professional athletes are the last people we should be looking toward for professionalism. If you want someone to be mad at, blame the politicians who are unwilling to give homosexuals equal rights not a guy getting paid to dunk a basketball who happened to make a bad joke.

REBEKAH MCMURRAINAlligator Contributing WriterUF Preview just got some P-Luv from the National Academic Advising Association. The universitys orientation program was awarded with Outstanding Institutional Advising Program recognition in the 2013 National Advising Awards. It was one of two winners within the category. The University of Minnesota was also awarded for its Center for Academic Planning and Exploration. UF was awarded for Preview Orientation Advising, according to the website. The academic advising component has worked very hard on improving over the years, Joseph Spillane, director of UFs Academic Advising Center, wrote in an email. It is a real pleasure when all of that hard work is recognized on a national level. There are always new adaptations and components for Preview, and one reason it has been so successful is that the program constantly changes, he said. The experience of working with Preview is incredible and inspiring because of the connections we are able to make with students and families in a such a short time, said Preview Staffer Joyner Atiles-Lopez, a 21-year-old recreation, parks and tourism senior. The Preview staff works as a team and motivates its members throughout the day, he said. Preview was an amazing experience because it gave you a glimpse into what being a student at UF was going to be like, said Angelica Marino, a 19year-old UF public relations junior. The staff was so friendly and energetic. You already felt as though you were a part of the Gator Nation. 8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 CAMPUS ALANNA MASSEYAlligator Contributing WriterMatt Asbell and Adam Lobar are bringing zombies to Florida and theyre going to attack. The two Gainesville residents are the ownLLC. tion will meet in July to play the live-action game set four generations after zombies take over the world, said 29-year-old Asbell. The duo began the process of buying the franchise in March. Asbell set up a monthlong fundraising campaign via the online Kickstarter platform in April, and it surpassed the goal. He had raised $2,250 by May 27, when the funding period ended. When participants arrive at Camp Chowenwaw Park in Green Cove Springs on July 19, they will establish their territory by plantprotect the camp and survive the weekend. Participants will make up their own characters and costumes and establish their identities, he said. People from all over the country will converge so they can all play together, Asbell said. I know people from practically every major city in the country because of this game. In forming the franchise, Asbell and Lobar were required to create a storyline for the Florida branch. Inspired by Gainesville, they land. The biggest challenge is just creating the world for them, but really, thats the fun part too, said Lobar, a 30-year-old UF alumnus. One of Lobars character creations is a gambling addict from Vegas named Seven Deuce Sal: Sal recently escaped slavery and is making his way to Gatorland. Sals story continues every Tuesday night, when a small group of locals meet to play the tabletop version of Dysvelop social skills that might not be acquired in real life, Asbell said.

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 MLB DRAFT ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterKarsten Whitson was the ninth overall selection in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft. The righthander out of Chipley turned down a $2.1 million offer from the San Diego Padres and instead went to Florida. Three years and a shoulder surgery later, Whitson was drafted again. This time, it was in the 37th round 1,126th overall by the Washington Nationals. Whitson was one of two Gators picked by the Nationals on Saturday, and one of four Florida players who have seen playing time this year picked on the second and third days of the MLB Draft. After the Detroit Tigers took junior pitcher Jonathon Crawford with the 20th overall pick in the to wait 190 picks before another Gator was selected. Left-handed reliever Daniel Gibson was second off the board, going 210th overall to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Gibson was 2-1 with a 4.42 ERA in 32 games in 2013, including a disasance of the year. In possibly his last appearance with the Gators, Gibson walked in the tying run and did not record an out in Floridas 5-4 loss to Valparaiso. After Gibson was selected, no Florida player was drafted for another 10 rounds. Johnny Magliozzi was the third Gator selected, going to the New York Mets 506th overall. The Mets er Matt Den Dekker in 2010 and pitcher Alex Panteliodis in 2011. Magliozzi started four games for the Gators in 2013, but spent most of the season as Floridas closer. He led the team with a 2.67 ERA and 12 saves. Magliozzi pitched Floridas last game of the year, going six innings and allowing four runs three of which were earned. Second off the board on Day Dent. The senior was selected by the Nationals 676th overall Dent got the most playing time in his career in 2013, playing in 52 games and starting 48. He hit .169. Gibson, Magliozzi and Whitson all have college eligibility remaining. The deadline for them to agree to contracts with their MLB squads is July 15.

TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Shooting guard Chandler Cooper will transfer from UF to Lipscomb. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org. Tebow-Mania lives onTim Tebow signed with the New England Patriots on Monday and will participate in the teams mandatory minicamp today. Tebow may see time at tight end under coach Bill Belichick, according to reports.Gators in the NBAHeat guard Mike Miller has shot 60 percent from beyond the arc in Miamis past four games. He went 3 of 3 for nine points against the Spurs on Sunday. Ryan Jones/Alligator StaffPoint guard Scottie Wilbekin dribbles to the lane during Floridas 77-44 win against Georgia on Jan. 9 in WILBEKINS SUSPENSION IS HIS SECOND IN EIGHT LANDON WATNICK Alligator Staff Writer Scottie Wilbekins career at Florida has taken another misstep. Florida has suspended the rising senior point guard for violating team rules, the school announced Monday. UF did not release any further details. Under terms of suspension, Wilbekin will not be allowed to work out at the Florida basketball practice facility until he is reinstated. Wilbekins suspension is his second in eight months. He was suspended on Nov. 8 for breaking team rules. The 6-foot-2 guard missed UFs idas canceled matchup against Georgetown aboard the USS Bataan in Jacksonville on Nov. 9. He starts fresh and clean in my mind, coach Billy Donovan said aflifted. Although we did address the things he has done, I think Id be making the mistake as a coach to constantly keep holding onto that, because Im expecting him to move on and expecting him to be committed to himself, the team and the things he needs to do here. After Florida began the season 2-0, Wilbekin said the suspension was humbling. It proves Im not bigger than the team and no player is bigger than the team, he said. Wilbekin had a breakout season as a junior in 2012-13, averaging 9.1 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 31.9 minutes per game as UFs starting point guard. Heralded as one of UFs best on-ball defenders, he tallied a teambest 53 steals and was named to the Southeastern Conferences All-Defensive Team. Wilbekin is one of two starters returning to a UF team that reached the Elite Eight for the third straight year. If his suspension continues into the 2013-14 regular season, Floridas depth at point guard would be tested. With Braxton Ogbueze transferring to UNC Charlotte, the only other natural point guard the Gators cruit Kasey Hill. Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org. Point guard suspended CHUCK KINGSBURY Alligator Staff Writer Right-hander Tucker Simpson will transfer from Florida, a UF spokesman will be transferring to a junior college. Simpson created a Twitter handle on June 4. Members of the baseball program are prohibited from having a Twitter account unless if they signed professionally or are no longer with the team, according to the UF spokesman. At the same time players such as Jonathon Crawford were creating Twitter accounts upon going professional, Simpson posted on his account (@tsimp10): lycanhavetwitter Simpson will be eligible for the 2014 MLB Draft. Per MLB rules, junior college draft eligible. During his freshman season in 201213, Simpson appeared in 13 games rounded out his freshman season with a 1-2 record and 4.79 ERA. In 35.2 innings, he walked 15 batters and struck out 29. His ERA was last only to freshman Eric Hanholds 5.88. The 6-foot-6 Simpson was ranked as the 62nd-best righthanded pitcher in the nation, according to ESPNs 2012 position rankings. Simpson played high school ball at Oxford High in Oxford, Ala., where he was ranked as the No. 1 right-hander and the No. 4 player in the state of Alabama in 2012. Simpsons last appearance came against Georgia on May 17, where he pitched 1.1 frames and surrendered two walks after relieving freshman Parker Danciu in the bottom of the seventh.

For the second straight year, the MLB Draft has sucked the best talent away from Gainesville. The season ended badly for the Gators, and a NCAA Regional appearance might not look so bad next June. Coming into 2013, everyone knew Florida would be in for a bumpy ride. The power hitters and dominant pitchers who took the Gators to three straight College World Series were all gone, leaving behind a young roster with few upperclassmen. eral of those upperclassmen are gone. Vickash Ramjit, one of the few consistent bats on a team starved for offense, leaves after a senior season where he hit .277 with four tion of a major league squad. in and day out, even if his .169 average didnt do the trick. But the offense will be OK. Richie Martin, Harrison Bader, Casey Turgeon, Justin Shafer and Taylor Gushue will all be back. The real damage is to the pitching. The offense struggled in 2013, but it was powerful compared to the pitching staff. Jonathon Crawford was the only consistent arm in the rotation. Hes gone. But dont worry; hell be nearby. Crawford will likely be assigned to the Flying Tigers, only a little more than two hours from McKethan Stadium. Crawford struggled in 2013 and only won three games, but he started 15. No other pitcher started more than eight. But Detroit saw enough potential to snap him up 20th overall, higher than several experts had him ly no chance Crawford ever returns to UF. All the other pitchers who rotated in and with injuries, command or just bad outings. Jay Carmichael looked solid in the rotation and was even promoted to Friday startthe year in the bullpen. Eric Hanhold and Danny Young both had promising starts at the end of the season but MLB Draft takes toll on Gators Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 SEE ADAM, PAGE 16

didnt prove enough to be guaranteed spots in the rotation next year. Sophomore right-hander Johnny Magliozzi was eligible for the draft due to a close-in-age rule, and the New York Mets picked him 506th overall. Whether that will be high enough to sway Magliozzi into pitching minor league ball is unknown. The sophomore had the best season of any Gators pitcher, notching a 2.67 ERA in mostly bullpen appearances. With another similar season or better especially if coach Kevin OSullivan moves him to the rotation permanently Magliozzi could see his draft But a chance to get a deal done now and jump into the professional ranks might convince the UF closer. If it does, Florida will be in bad shape. But there is some potential help coming off the disabled list. Juniors Karsten Whitson and Keenan Kish pitched nal year of eligibility to prove to pro teams that he still has gas in the tank. With his injury history, theres no If Whitson and Kish come back at full strength, the Gators will have a chance to compete again. If not, it could get ugly quickly at McKethan Stadium. But I hear Lakelands Joker Marchant Stadium is nice. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@alligator. org.
