money with private funding, Yeffet said, but no plans are set in stone. Another key project is the renovation of the chemistry building. This year, $20 million was allocated to the project, on top of the $22 million the Legislation has approved in the past. This completes the total building cost, Sikes said. Other wins for the university include an extra $5 million per year in preeminence funding. As the states designated preeminence university, UF already receives $15 million annually. Increased funding for our plan to become one of the nations top 10 public research universities will support and the economic development that comes with innovation, UF President Bernie Machen said in a statement. Machen also noted that the $16 to $18 million going to UFs Health Cancer Center will reinforce our efforts to save lives in a state with 117,000 newly diagnosed cases each year. With this funding, UFs cancer center will be able to pursue National Cancer Institute designation, a measure encouraged by Scott. We are extremely grateful to the Legislature and Scott for the level of funding allocated to the University of Machen said. We are pleased that this budget gives us the resources to do more for our students and the state of Florida. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 Julian Pinilla / Alligator Staff Computer lab to be added soon starting July 1. Theresa Lowe, executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said that tent camping will also be an option at Grace Marketplace in the future. Laundry facilities, a computer lab, a Dress for Success clothing closet and secure storage spaces are scheduled to be added within a few months. While the city and county are providing $308,000 annually for the operation of Grace Marketplace, Lowe said an additional $20,000 per month is needed to maintain its current level of service. To expand our services to where we feel they should be, we need another million dollars a year, Lowe said. Volunteers are also needed for a variety of tasks at the center, including reception, up the grounds and eventually overnight supervision, Lowe said. If theres something somebody is willing and able to do, if they are willing to take the time to come out here to do it, its something we could probably use, DeCarmine said. Jonathon Nunes, a 22-year-old UF international relations junior, said he plans to volunteer at Grace Marketplace. The the issue of homelessness has personal My father has been intermittently homeless for 10 years, Nunes said. Once youre homeless, its very hard not to be homeless.

At the time, Pinder was scared. School was closed, and the wind howled. She and her family found ways to entertain themselves as they waited out the storm. It was a tough experience, but we got through it, she said. Pinder said shes not worried about this summers storms, however. She lives far apartment in Gainesville, she said.

And dont forget Fido, either. Cats and dogs should be wearing collars with up-to-date information and should have enough food to last out the storm as well, according to Gainesville Regional Utilities safety checklist. We encourage students to get a plan, get a kit and be informed, Allen said. In the event of an emergency, students should call Alachua County Emergency Management at 352-264-6500 for evacuation information. Alachua County emergency management coordinator Jen Horner said college students can take advantage of having two homes. If a storm does head toward campus this summer, Horner recommends waiting it out with relatives. I think the number one thing is to go back home, she said. Go home to mom and dad.

Angelina Jolie is absolutecould cut yourself on, stunning emerald eyes and ruby lips, Jolie exudes an aura of mystical and dangerous femininity. This might have been a distraction from an inferior actress Jolie is exalted by it. She wears crown. I cannot recall a more spellbinding performance in a Hollywood fantasy. The way she uses her silences lean forward in their seats, catching her every word and movement. She is so good that the movies few scenes without her feel empty and pointless. Her real power moment, however, comes not from casting a spell but from genuine hurt and anger in the most disturbing scene Ive ever seen in a Disney movie, maybe in Hollywood fairy tales overall. Feminism is a strong theme in message that love and trust between two women is just as important as love from a man. can most closely be compared to is the ice queen, Elsa, who was similarly betrayed and isolated. Elsa also doesnt end up with a man and satisfaction in the love of another woman. This movie advances the feminist message even more: dispelling that popular Hollywood trope of the old, bitter harpy feeling jealousy and rage toward the younger and more beautiful woman. Disney deserves applause for attempting to bring feminism to the younger and there are quite a few it was a also a singularly powerful and sometimes artful piece of entertainment. Jolie is so good in this role I give it three-and-a-half stars

PATRICK GLYNNAvenue WriterHundred Waters, a band formed in 2011 with roots in Gainesville, has covered genres from electronic to indie to folk to hip-hop with their tempos and drums over their last couple projects. Though their self-titled album, released in 2012, introduced the ability to cover those genres, the bands most recent effort, The Moon Rang Like A Bell, enhanced and honed in on those sounds. The albums narrative lead singer Nicole Miglis on a 12-track quest for peace and trust in someone or something, only to bear her loneliness and incompleteness Sound. But where the lyrics are sometimes drowned out or hard to understand because they act as an instrument, the band excels in its enhanced production to help visualize Miglis narrative. The backing members of Hundred Waters surround Miglis high-pitched, spacious voice with a combination of electro-pop synths (Xtalk), dusty pianos (Murmurs) and heavy bass and drums (Innocent), even using Miglis voice as an instrument (Murmurs), to enhance the songs themes of untrustworthiness, loneliness and love. For example, the wooden, jungle-esque xylophones in [Animal] and the galloping drums in Seven White Horses both add deeper layers to the overall sound, which is much more than guitar and piano chords with matching bass notes and drums. Every note, every distortion of the voice, every bass hit means something to the narrative. The band has grown in every project released two years ago from the production to the overarching sound, and The Moon Rang Like A Bell is the bands best work yet.GNV band makes waves THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Courtesy to the AlligatorHundred Waters, a band from Gainesville, released their album The Moon Rang Like a Bell last week. music JULIA LOPEZAvenue WriterSome of Gainesvilles top bars and clubs are sweating this summer, and its not just because of the heat. Business at these local watering holes is lagging thanks to a shrunken student popuThe amount of people who go out has drastically declined, said Shimal Patel, owner of Sharab Lounge, located at 109 S. Main St. Patel had to close Sharabs doors for the last three weeks in order to rethink his business strategy. Up until now, Patel has been able to stay alive during the summer by closing down isnt busy. He leaves the hookah bar on the lounge where a live disc jockey plays. To encourage more students to visit Sharab, Patel plans to change the way drinks are served and music is chosen. We also plan on going back to the way on doing this by pouring the drinks students can choose from. Patel also plans to have promoter DJs come in and play the music students want to hear on the days they want to hear it. I have a resident DJ on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the Fall and Spring semesters, he said. When it is slow, I hire a promoter to pick DJs based on students likes and dislikes in music. One thing Patel says he will not do, however, is raise the price of cover, drinks or hookah at Sharab. He plans to keep the prices student friendly. Thats important to students like Chantelle Morgan, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior. I havent been going out that much because I have been too busy studying, she nancial aid during the Summer. Students are unable to go out as frequently as they do in Fall and Spring semesters due to the heavy course load that comes with six-to10-week classes in the Summer semester. But diminished crowds of students may be a boon to up-and-coming DJs. Don Bell, a DJ for Mainstream DJs, said that if a new DJ wants to try out the profession, his or her best bet is to speak with local establishments during the summer. With less competition than in the fall or spring, summer offers a better shot at local success for an aspiring or up-and-coming DJ. Melvin Shackelford, who is part of the Simons management team, said that in the summer, the club is able to try out new DJs and see how the students react to them. He said DJs from Gainesville and from as far away as Orlando contact him with requests to perform at Simons. Whether they start off in the summer, Bell said the lifespan for DJs depend on how well they know their environment.Slow summer nights, scarce students sting some local clubsBut turn the tables for new DJs I havent been going out that much because I have been too busy studying.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 KELSI AND KERI MATWICKAvenue WritersFood is more than just nutrients. Food conjures up memories and reveals who we are and who we are not. What we eat is a medium for personal recollection and collective identity. Marcel Proust, the great French author, is famous for connecting food and memory with madeleines, those squat plump little cakes. We certainly have him to thank for those little packages of petite French cakes at every Starbucks checkout. Lets turn to the renowned inspires a recollection of the narrators childhood in the village of Combray, France, in Prousts Remembrance of Things Past. Dipping the scalloped butter cake-cookie in tea, Proust is stirred with vivid memories: She (Marcels mother) sent for one of those squat plump little cakes called petites madeleines, which look as though they had of a scallop shell I raised to my lips a spoonful of the tea in which I had soaked a morsel of the cake. No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure invaded my senses. And suddenly the memory revealed itself. The taste was that of the little piece of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray when I went to say good morning to her in her bedroom, my aunt Leonie used to own cup of tea or tisane and the whole of Combray and its surroundings, taking shape and solidity, sprang into being, town and garden alike, from my cup of tea. The encounter with the madeleine was magical for Proust and sparked his writing of seven tions. While we are not asking you to write that much, try writing a short vignette based on your personal madeleine. Some stories may conjure up sweet, sour or bittersweet memories. graphical and symbolic meaning to you, such as Prousts tiny cake. It may be a holiday meal or an after-school packaged snack. Try to taste it before writing. Describe it and the images and memories it conjures up. Is it homemade or commercial? Is it positive, negative or in between (bittersweet)? Is it a demographic marker of gender, race, religion, generation or class? Does eating it make you feel part of a group, or excluded? Food memories are often nostalgic and related to growing or grandmothers apple pie may conjure up thoughts of Dads weekend brunch or special Sunday dinners shared after church or in the fall. A recollection of tamales, caf con leche or Philadelphia cheesecake invokes ethnic or regional markers, and the memories may serve to preserve identities affected by migration and mobility. Particular foods spark powerful personal recollections and associations, revealing a key concept of food studies: We are what we ate. And to add the linguistic component, words help to recollect and convey these memories.

THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Former Florida center Joakim Noah was named to time at Florida with her UF IMPROVES TO 1-2 IN CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. JORDAN MCPHERSON@J_McPherson1126Tim Walton said it best on April 15. I really like our team, the ninthyear coach said. Are we talented enough to win the Womens College World Series? I think yes. Are we capable of that? I think yes. Forty-nine days later, Waltons seed Florida (55-12) defeated second-seeded Alabama (53-13) 6-3 on Tuesday to sweep the Crimson Tide ship in Gators softball history. This is kind of a surreal moment for me right now sitting up here with Hannah and the other kids that bought into it this year, Walton said. After senior Hannah Rogers four games in the Womens College World Series giving up just three runs in 26 innings of work Walton decided to roll the dice and give Lauren Haeger the start in the circle on Tuesday. Its a three-game series, and thats how weve been doing it all year, Haeger said.

The 2014 MLB First-Year Draft begins Thursday evening and will continue through Saturday. The Houston Astros have the No. 1 overall pick for the third consecutive that could hear their names called by Houston including right hander Tyler Kolek from Shepherd High in Texas, lefties Brady Aiken of Cathedral Catholic High in San Diego and Carlos Rodon catcher Alex Jackson of Rancho Bernardo High in San Diego and Central Florida shortstop Nick Gordon from Olympia H.S. are also among the potential No. 1 picks. Kolek put together an impressive 2014 campaign, which included 10 games, 60.1 innings pitched and just a 0.35 ERA. He allowed just 23 hits.

He then took the NBA by storm over the next decade by implementing fastpaced brand of basketball dubbed Showtime, piloted by Magic Johnson and anchored by Kareem Abdul-Jabar. It was a new way to play roundball, and 30 years later, again ahead of the curve, Rileys at it again on the opposite coast.

The crowd clapped and chanted along. UF President Bernie Machen greeted the squad as it placed the trophy on a blue-clothed table in packages of Twizzlers. Were not just Floridas team, Machen said. Were Americas team. The crowd enthusiastically roared in response to Machen as he gave up the microphone to coach Tim Walton. As Walton spoke about the achievements of the 2014 class and the importance of an NCAA title making its way to Gainesville, shouts of I love you, and Walton is the best, echoed from the fans that had waited in line under the Florida sun at the hottest time of day, at the hottest time of the year.

They are meticulous and fundamental in everything they do, a nod to a head coach with a military mind who played his college basketball at Air Force Greg Popovich. Popovich has built the NBAs version of the New England Patriots, a consistent winning machine that started success near the turn of the century and hasnt stopped since. He even shares Patriots head coach Bill Belichicks But, unlike his counterpart, NBA architect Riley, Popovich did not stray from a con servative and structured mold in his most successful coaching stop.

money with private funding, Yeffet said, but no plans are set in stone. Another key project is the renovation of the chemistry building. This year, $20 million was allocated to the project, on top of the $22 million the Legislation has approved in the past. This completes the total building cost, Sikes said. Other wins for the university include an extra $5 million per year in preeminence funding. As the states designated preeminence university, UF already receives $15 million annually. Increased funding for our plan to become one of the nations top 10 public research universities will support and the economic development that comes with innovation, UF President Bernie Machen said in a statement. Machen also noted that the $16 to $18 million going to UFs Health Cancer Center will reinforce our efforts to save lives in a state with 117,000 newly diagnosed cases each year. With this funding, UFs cancer center will be able to pursue National Cancer Institute designation, a measure encouraged by Scott. We are extremely grateful to the Legislature and Scott for the level of funding allocated to the University of Machen said. We are pleased that this budget gives us the resources to do more for our students and the state of Florida. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 Julian Pinilla / Alligator Staff Computer lab to be added soon starting July 1. Theresa Lowe, executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said that tent camping will also be an option at Grace Marketplace in the future. Laundry facilities, a computer lab, a Dress for Success clothing closet and secure storage spaces are scheduled to be added within a few months. While the city and county are providing $308,000 annually for the operation of Grace Marketplace, Lowe said an additional $20,000 per month is needed to maintain its current level of service. To expand our services to where we feel they should be, we need another million dollars a year, Lowe said. Volunteers are also needed for a variety of tasks at the center, including reception, up the grounds and eventually overnight supervision, Lowe said. If theres something somebody is willing and able to do, if they are willing to take the time to come out here to do it, its something we could probably use, DeCarmine said.

PATRICK GLYNNAvenue WriterHundred Waters, a band formed in 2011 with roots in Gainesville, has covered genres from electronic to indie to folk to hip-hop with their tempos and drums over their last couple projects. Though their self-titled album, released in 2012, introduced the ability to cover those genres, the bands most recent effort, The Moon Rang Like A Bell, enhanced and honed in on those sounds. The albums narrative lead singer Nicole Miglis on a 12-track quest for peace and trust in someone or something, only to bear her loneliness and incompleteness Sound. But where the lyrics are sometimes drowned out or hard to understand because they act as an instrument, the band excels in its enhanced production to help visualize Miglis narrative. The backing members of Hundred Waters surround Miglis high-pitched, spacious voice with a combination of electro-pop synths (Xtalk), dusty pianos (Murmurs) and heavy bass and drums (Innocent), even using Miglis voice as an instrument (Murmurs), to enhance the songs themes of untrustworthiness, loneliness and love. For example, the wooden, jungle-esque xylophones in [Animal] and the galloping drums in Seven White Horses both add deeper layers to the overall sound, which is much more than guitar and piano chords with matching bass notes and drums. Every note, every distortion of the voice, every bass hit means something to the narrative. The band has grown in every project released two years ago from the production to the overarching sound, and The Moon Rang Like A Bell is the bands best work yet.GNV band makes waves THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Courtesy to the AlligatorHundred Waters, a band from Gainesville, released their album The Moon Rang Like a Bell last week. music JULIA LOPEZAvenue WriterSome of Gainesvilles top bars and clubs are sweating this summer, and its not just because of the heat. Business at these local watering holes is lagging thanks to a shrunken student popuThe amount of people who go out has drastically declined, said Shimal Patel, owner of Sharab Lounge, located at 109 S. Main St. Patel had to close Sharabs doors for the last three weeks in order to rethink his business strategy. Up until now, Patel has been able to stay alive during the summer by closing down isnt busy. He leaves the hookah bar on the lounge where a live disc jockey plays. To encourage more students to visit Sharab, Patel plans to change the way drinks are served and music is chosen. We also plan on going back to the way on doing this by pouring the drinks students can choose from. Patel also plans to have promoter DJs come in and play the music students want to hear on the days they want to hear it. I have a resident DJ on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the Fall and Spring semesters, he said. When it is slow, I hire a promoter to pick DJs based on students likes and dislikes in music. One thing Patel says he will not do, however, is raise the price of cover, drinks or hookah at Sharab. He plans to keep the prices student friendly. Thats important to students like Chantelle Morgan, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior. I havent been going out that much because I have been too busy studying, she nancial aid during the Summer. Students are unable to go out as frequently as they do in Fall and Spring semesters due to the heavy course load that comes with six-to10-week classes in the Summer semester. But diminished crowds of students may be a boon to up-and-coming DJs. Don Bell, a DJ for Mainstream DJs, said that if a new DJ wants to try out the profession, his or her best bet is to speak with local establishments during the summer. With less competition than in the fall or spring, summer offers a better shot at local success for an aspiring or up-and-coming DJ. Melvin Shackelford, who is part of the Simons management team, said that in the summer, the club is able to try out new DJs and see how the students react to them. He said DJs from Gainesville and from as far away as Orlando contact him with requests to perform at Simons. Whether they start off in the summer, Bell said the lifespan for DJs depend on how well they know their environment.Slow summer nights, scarce students sting some local clubsBut turn the tables for new DJs I havent been going out that much because I have been too busy studying. It doesnt help that I dont Chantelle Morgan

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 KELSI AND KERI MATWICKAvenue WritersFood is more than just nutrients. Food conjures up memories and reveals who we are and who we are not. What we eat is a medium for personal recollection and collective identity. Marcel Proust, the great French author, is famous for connecting food and memory with madeleines, those squat plump little cakes. We certainly have him to thank for those little packages of petite French cakes at every Starbucks checkout. Lets turn to the renowned inspires a recollection of the narrators childhood in the village of Combray, France, in Prousts Remembrance of Things Past. Dipping the scalloped butter cake-cookie in tea, Proust is stirred with vivid memories: She (Marcels mother) sent for one of those squat plump little cakes called petites madeleines, which look as though they had of a scallop shell I raised to my lips a spoonful of the tea in which I had soaked a morsel of the cake. No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure invaded my senses. And suddenly the memory revealed itself. The taste was that of the little piece of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray when I went to say good morning to her in her bedroom, my aunt Leonie used to own cup of tea or tisane and the whole of Combray and its surroundings, taking shape and solidity, sprang into being, town and garden alike, from my cup of tea. The encounter with the madeleine was magical for Proust and sparked his writing of seven tions. While we are not asking you to write that much, try writing a short vignette based on your personal madeleine. Some stories may conjure up sweet, sour or bittersweet memories. graphical and symbolic meaning to you, such as Prousts tiny cake. It may be a holiday meal or an after-school packaged snack. Try to taste it before writing. Describe it and the images and memories it conjures up. Is it homemade or commercial? Is it positive, negative or in between (bittersweet)? Is it a demographic marker of gender, race, religion, generation or class? Does eating it make you feel part of a group, or excluded? Food memories are often nostalgic and related to growing or grandmothers apple pie may conjure up thoughts of Dads weekend brunch or special Sunday dinners shared after church or in the fall. A recollection of tamales, caf con leche or Philadelphia cheesecake invokes ethnic or regional markers, and the memories may serve to preserve identities affected by migration and mobility. Particular foods spark powerful personal recollections and associations, revealing a key concept of food studies: We are what we ate. And to add the linguistic component, words help to recollect and convey these memories. For additional reading of the creative use of food memories, made Life, Ruth Reichls Tender at the Bone, Sharon Boorstins Let Us Eat Cake: Adventures in Food and Friendship, and Mark Winegardners We Are What We Ate: 24 Memories of Food.

THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Former Florida center Joakim Noah was named to time at Florida with her UF IMPROVES TO 1-2 IN CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES. JORDAN MCPHERSON@J_McPherson1126Tim Walton said it best on April 15. I really like our team, the ninthyear coach said. Are we talented enough to win the Womens College World Series? I think yes. Are we capable of that? I think yes. Forty-nine days later, Waltons seed Florida (55-12) defeated second-seeded Alabama (53-13) 6-3 on Tuesday to sweep the Crimson Tide ship in Gators softball history. This is kind of a surreal moment for me right now sitting up here with Hannah and the other kids that bought into it this year, Walton said. After senior Hannah Rogers four games in the Womens College World Series giving up just three runs in 26 innings of work Walton decided to roll the dice and give Lauren Haeger the start in the circle on Tuesday. Its a three-game series, and thats how weve been doing it all year, Haeger said. Hannah has been doing great, and I told my team and told Hannah, Im going to go as long and as hard as I can, and I knew I had two pitchers behind me that were going to shut everyone down, too. ning, giving up back-to-back singles to start the contest and surrendering a one-out RBI single to Alabama the Crimson Tide an early 1-0 lead. Florida responded in the bottom half of the frame, with senior Stephanie Tofft launching a Jaclyn Traina two-out home run to even the score. The Gators tacked on four more runs in the bottom half of the frame, three of which came from a Kirsti second long ball of the Womens College World Series to extend Floridas lead to 5-1 and force Traina out of the circle after just 1.1 innings the sixth inning when Tofft scored Haeger surrendered a two-out home run in the third inning, but limited the damage to one in her ria, Ariz., was relieved by freshman lefty Delanie Gourley after giving up a leadoff single to Traina in the fourth inning. in the circle since throwing a no-hitof NCAA action, pitched two scoreless innings to earn her 15th win of the season while Rogers earned her second save of the year by pitching We dont have a superstar on our team, Walton said. We have a bunch of players that do their job, and today was a tribute to that. We got a Lauren quality start, Delanie gets the W and Hannah gets the save. For all of them to be a part of the this National Championship game was something very, very special. The Gators started the season with 22 straight wins, topping four ranked teams and shutting out seven teams in the process. But after reaching the Southeastern Conference portion of the schedule, Florida hit a slump, going three-way tie for third one year after winning the conference outright. Florida wasnt at its high point at the end of the regular season. It went one-and-out in the SEC Tournament, a game that became the turning point of the season The Georgia loss was good for AP Photo GATORS ROLL TIDE, WIN FIRST NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP MORGAN MORIARTY@Morgan_MoriartyFor more than 1,200 high school and college baseball players across the United States, Thursday could potentially mark one of the biggest days of their lives. The 2014 MLB First-Year Draft begins Thursday evening and will continue through Saturday. The Houston Astros have the No. 1 overall pick for the third consecutive that could hear their names called by Houston including right hander Tyler Kolek from Shepherd High in Texas, lefties Brady Aiken of Cathedral Catholic High in San Diego and Carlos Rodon catcher Alex Jackson of Rancho Bernardo High in San Diego and Central Florida shortstop Nick Gordon from Olympia H.S. are also among the potential No. 1 picks. Kolek put together an impressive 2014 campaign, which included 10 games, 60.1 innings pitched and just a 0.35 ERA. He allowed just 23 hits. Aiken had an ERA of 1.06 in 59.2 innings, but his numbers last season were slightly more impressive a 0.92 ERA with nine game MLB Draft begins today, several Gators availableJOHNSONS JOURNALAnd so they meet again, the two foes that could not be more different. Besides a shared Latin American culture within its fanbase, the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat seem worlds apart. One team has the best player on the planet South Florida with all the glitz and glamour that comes with. It is a new school and new age idea of what basketball has become an assemblage of talent by a team president that is himself a dichotomy of his basketball origins. from the basketball background of Kentucky, the storied college basketball powerhouse and was coached by Adolph Rupp. You may remember Rupp as the antagonist in the Disney movie Glory Road if you dont recognize him as one of the greatest college basketball coaches that ever lived. After Rileys playing career, he became a broadcaster for a short period before becoming head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. He then took the NBA by storm over the next decade by implementing fastpaced brand of basketball dubbed Showtime, piloted by Magic Johnson and anchored by Kareem Abdul-Jabar. It was a new way to play roundball, and 30 years later, again ahead of the curve, Rileys at it again on the opposite coast. Hes built a team around three key stars, with a dominant small forward in LeBron James. Its not the old-school blueprint on how to build a champion with an increased reliance on thrift store priced role players, but its one thats produced two NBA championships in a row, and the Heat look well SEE SOFT, PAGE 19 SEE JOHNSONS JOURNAL, PAGE 17 Major League Baseball SEE DRAFT, PAGE 19 Richard Johnson QuotableWe didnt come out here to hangout and eat funnel cakes.

Florida sealed the deal Tuesday night against No. 2-seed Alabama after the Gators won the programs It only made sense that they would come home to a stadium The event opened with senior Hannah Rogers leading the team into the stadium with the NCAA trophy held high and the team chanting, Its great to be a Florida Gator. The crowd clapped and chanted along. UF President Bernie Machen greeted the squad as it placed the trophy on a blue-clothed table in packages of Twizzlers. Were not just Floridas team, Machen said. Were Americas team. The crowd enthusiastically roared in response to Machen as he gave up the microphone to coach Tim Walton. As Walton spoke about the achievements of the 2014 class and the importance of an NCAA title making its way to Gainesville, shouts of I love you, and Walton is the best, echoed from the fans that had waited in line under the Florida sun at the hottest time of day, at the hottest time of the year. Adam Schick, play-by-play host for Florida softball, took over and began interviewing Stephanie Tofft, Aubree Munro and Kirsti name was called that the crowd went wild. Rogers stepped next to Schick and as the crowd died down, stragglers shouted their love for the four-time All-American. I just wanted to do it for these girls, Rogers said to Schick as he asked her about the perfect end to a 55-12 season. When Rogers stepped away, the team turned to the video board that usually displays hits, runs and errors, to watch a montage of the teams postseason success: Clips of home runs, Merritts SportsCenter Top 10 catch on Tuesday night and image after image of Rogers striking out opponents. The celebration ended with the team huddled together in a circle singing, We Are The Champions, and then each player parted ways to greet their friends and families. came from UF athletic director Jeremy Foley.

We realized we had to make adjustments and do things different offensively and I think that was good. ney through the NCAA Tournament eight shutouts. Most teams set goals to win ev ery series or win the SEC or do some things and this team actually set a goal to win a national championship, Wal talked about in my coaching but this team felt like we had the parts and the pieces to do it.

The Heat face the San Antonio Spurs tonight for Game 1. Miami chasing dynasty statuson their way to a third. Standing in their way is their opposite. The homegrown squad with starters most fans cant name. It is a group not spontane over the course of what seems like a millen nia. They are meticulous and fundamental in everything they do, a nod to a head coach with a military mind who played his college basketball at Air Force Greg Popovich. Popovich has built the NBAs version of the New England Patriots, a consistent winning machine that started success near the turn of the century and hasnt stopped since. He even shares Patriots head coach Bill Belichicks But, unlike his counterpart, NBA architect Riley, Popovich did not stray from a con servative and structured mold in his most successful coaching stop. More accurately, Pop built a basketball robot that consistent ing from veteran to old every time they win or lose. They have the ageless wonder at power forward Tim Duncan, and imports from France, the Virgin Islands, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, Canada and Italy. The teams met last year of course, and without some bad bounces and a dagger Ray Allen three pointer, things could be a lot dif ferent. The Spurs would be fresh off their history was written differently and James, Riley, Allen et al. got to celebrate another championship, their second in a row. If the Heat can win this title, Pat Riley will again be in the spotlight. Not necessarily for the team hes put together, but because of what it was able to do. Theres a term for the feat, because not only did Riley just ac but he actually legally trademarked it the three peat.
