Police:

I Beware

of phone
S
scam
From staff reports
The Marianna Police De-
partment is warning local
citizens of a phone scam
that's starting to make its
way through the commu-
nity. But the first intended
victim was too savvy for the
scammers and she wants
to helpwarn others.
The victim got a call on
March 4 from a man with a
foreign accent who identi-
fied himself as an employ-
ee of the U.S. government.
He said that all senior citi-
zens were about to receive
new Medicare cards and
that he was calling to help
expedite the process for
her.
He asked her about her
bank and her account and
then asked her to read the
numbers off the bottom of
one of her blank checks.
Realizing that his ques-
tions were suspicious and
were likely part of an at-
)AN tempt to access her mon-
in ey, she ended the call and
Ity contacted police without
giving him the informa-
he tion. Police say she did the
right thing, and that she is
to to be commendedcor com-
,s- ing forward so that others
it. could be put on alert.
he Police say all others who
n, have such encounters
should also report the inci-
9A dent and should never give
out such vital information
over the phone.

JAS STUDENTS ENJOY ARBOR DAY PROGRAM


SUBMITTED PHOTOS

L EFT: On Feb. 21, Ariel Sewell, Senior Forester with the Florida Department of Forestry, presented an Arbor Day program and tree
planting demonstration at Jackson Alternative School. Sewell spoke with Carolyn Smith's eighth-grade Careers Class about forestry
occupations and necessary education, and also spoke with Linda Sims's Pre-Vocational Class about the history of Arbor Day. Sewell and
. the Pre-Vocational students then planted two dogwood trees on the school campus. Smith's elementary PE Class assisted and the younger
children enjoyed getting their hands dirty and learning about plants. Sewell provided several other trees for Jackson Alternative to plant on its
campus; these trees will be planted at a later date by the Pre-Vocational Class. Pictured (from left) are students of Smith's eighth-grade
Careers Class: Dakota Lipford, Memorie Glass, Taliyah Reed, LaPorsha Pittman and Kendall Collins. RIGHT: Members of Carolyn Smith's
elementary PE Class observe Senior Forester Ariel Sewell plant a tree as part of the Arbor Day Program. From left: Brianna Harvey; Linda

Chili Din er Fundraiser a -Big Success for Troop 3

Customer David Cumbie (left), with Marianna Toyota, is
served his chili dinner plate by Troop 3 scouts. Scouts are
(from left): Skylar Suggs, Gavin Tharpe, Daniel Tillman and
Noah McArthur. Despite the rain and dreary weather, Troop
3 Boy Scouts' 31st annual chili dinner fundraiser held at
the First United Methodist Church on Monday, Feb. 25, was
deemed a huge success. Tickets had been sold during the
weeks prior to the dinner, though there were many drop-in
customers who came to enjoy the chili and a good time of
fellowship. Troop 3 is extremely grateful for the overwhelming
support from Jackson County citizens, local businesses
and their families and friends for making it one of the most
successful chili dinners ever. The money raised will help
scouts attend Camp Alaflo in June, which is a full week of fun
and unique opportunities for Boy Scouts from Florida and
Alabama. Many local Scouts who wouldn't have been able to
participate will'now getto do so, due to the generous support
from the community. Troop 3 extends special thanks to
sponsors Winn Dixie, Grocery Outlet, Save-a-Lot Food Store,
Jack Hinson Construction, Big Lots, The Oaks Restaurant,
Panhandle Pawn and Gun, Peoples South Bank, Marianna
Toyota, County Commissioner Chuck Lockey and many more
Swho, with their outreach, have positively impacted these
young boys' lives. For more information, call Scout Master Bill

SGardner, Vlieg to speak at Republican Club meeting


Special to the Floridan

Chipola College instruc-
tors John Gardner and
Chase Vlieg will speak to
the Republican Club of
West Florida on Tuesday,
March 12. Jim Fowler will
also make a special ap-
pearance via SKYPE.
The Mutual of Omaha's-
Wild Kingdom TV series
was to many of us a fa-
vorite. We were enthralled
by Marlin Perkins and Jim
Fowler bouncing through
African savannas and riv-
ers and deserts in their two
Jeeps. The iconic Jeeps are
now at Chipola College's
Automotive Service Tech-
nology Program. Chipola
College instructors John
Gardner and Chase Vlieg
are restoring the Jeeps
as part of a class project
suggested to them by Bob
Pforte, CEO of Bob Pforte
Dodge.
Gardner and Vlieg
will make a presenta-
tion on Chipola's excel-
lent Automotive Service
Technology Program and

the Jeep restoration proj-
ect. The two instructors
have 24 years of combined
experience in educating
students in automotive
technology. In those 24
years they have taught stu-
dents of all ages, creating
the need to develop and
incorporate curriculum
and multimedia that will
reach all types of learners.
Chipola College has sup-
ported every action they
have taken to make sure
their students are success-
ful. They have bridged the
gap between schools and
industry by partnering


with their local advisory
members along with mul-
tiple companies such as
Gates, Advance Auto Parts,:
Auto Value, Carquest,
NAPA, 3 Echoes Produc-
tion, BBB Industries and
Brenton Production. Gard-
ner and Vlieg have used
the Speed Channel's set of
Two Guys Garage to make
some of their training
videos.
The Jeep restoration proj-
ect came about when Bob
Pforte took the vehicles to
Chipola. Pforte knew of the
College's highly rated voca-
tional program. Through
his friendship with James


Broaddus, II, founder of
Bear Creek Feline Cen-
ter, he met Jim Fowler. It
turned out that Fowler still
owned the Jeeps which
were deteriorating in stor-
age. Pforte convinced
Fowler that having Chipo-
la'sautomotive technology
department restore them
would be a good way to
attract students.
The presentation will
be at the Republican Club
meeting on March 12. The
meeting will be held at
Jim's Buffet & Grill starting
at noon. For more infor-
mation.about the Republi-
can Club, call 352-4984.

cessful fight against cancer;
The 33-year-old Republican from
Wesley Chapel said despite that
history, offering coverage to those
who are just above the poverty line
"crosses the line of the proper role of
government." He said that the fed-
eral government was trying to "buy
states off one by one."
"This inflexible plan, thrust upon


us by the federal government, is not
aimed at strengthening the safety
net," he said. "It pushes a social ide-
ology at the expense of our future."
Medicaid expansion is viewed as
a centerpiece of President Barack
Obama's health care overhaul.
Florida led a legal challenge against
the overhaul, but the U.S. Supreme
Court upheld the law although the
court ruled that states could opt out
of the expansion.
Scott is among a line of GOP gover-
nors who in recent weeks have said
they would go along with the expan-
sion. The governor's recommenda-
tion was denounced by top Republi-
cans. A House panel on Monday also
voted against the expansion.
Some Republican senators said
that there may be an alternative to
Medicaid expansion that can be de-
veloped bY,,the end of the session.

TALLAHASSEE A bid to cover
roughly 1 million Floridians by ex-
panding the state Medicaid program
is in doubt after one of the state's top
legislative leaders called it a social
experiment "destined for failure."
House Speaker Will Weatherford
used the opening day of the annual
legislative session to denounce the
idea of expanding the safety-net
health insurance program. Within
hours, Senate President Don Gaetz
responded by suggesting that the
Senate was unlikely to move for-

opposition.
"It sounds to me as if the House

Nation Brief

Military welcomes
L GOP budget bill
WASHINGTON A
massive House Republican
measure to keep the gov-
ernment operating would
ease some of the pain of
automatic spending cuts
slamming the Defense
Department, the nation's
senior military leaders told
Congress on Tuesday.
Members of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff painted a
dire picture of construc-
tion projects on hold,
limits on aircraft carriers
patrolling the waters and
even a delay in the expan-
sion of Arlington National
Cemetery due to the $43
billion in across-the-board
cuts that kicked in Friday.
Problematic for the
Pentagon has been the
combination of the auto-
matic cuts and the govern-
ment still operating at last
year's spending levels. The
GOP measure unveiled on
Monday would give the
Defense and Veterans Af-
fairs departments sought-
after flexibility in spending
that other agencies lack.
"It mitigates at least one-
third of our problem," said
Army Gen. Raymond Odi-
erno, who told the panel
that the budget cuts and
last year's spending level
had left the service with an
$18 billion shortfall in op-
eration and maintenance
plus $6 billion in cuts in
other programs.
Adm. Jonathan Greenert,
the chief of Naval Opera-
tions, said the bill would
be "almost night and day,"
with a shortfall of $8.6 bil-
lion in operations reduced
by more than half.

Snow storm barrels through Midwest


The Associated Press

CHICAGO A late win-
ter storm packing up to 10
inches of snow sent offi-
cials in weather-hardened
Chicago into action Tues-
day to prevent a repeat of
scenes from two years ago,
when hundreds of people
in cars and buses were
stranded on the city's mar-
quee thoroughfare during
a massive blizzard.
The storm was part of
a system that started in
Montana, hit the Dakotas
and Minnesota on Monday
and then barreled through
Wisconsin and Illinois on
its way to Washington,
D.C., where it was expect-
ed late Tuesday night. As
the storm pushed toward
the Mid-Atlantic region,
people there were gather-
ing supplies and airlines
were canceling flights.
Since the 2011 blizzard
that dumped 20 inches
on Chicago, the nation's
third-largest city has had
it pretty easy snow-wise,
with a relatively mild win-
ter last year and a slow
start this year. The storm
that was moving through
the Midwest on Tuesday
dumped 6 inches at Chi-
cago's O'Hare Internation-
al Airport by 4 p.m.
Preparations for Tues-
day's storm, including
warnings to commuters
that it was coming, may
have paid off. Illinois
Department of Transpor-
tation spokesman Mike
Claffey said in an email
that traffic was lighter
than normal on Chicago
expressways Tuesday af-
ternoqn, an indication


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Airport in Chicago on Tuesday.


that many people took
public transportation in-
stead of cars. Claffey also
said there were no re-
ports of 'any major traffic
accidents.
Still, some in Chicago
were caught off guard by
the last gasp from Old
Man Winter. Many left
their downtown jobs early,
with sqme saying they had
to go home to take care of
children after school pro-
grams were canceled or
baby sitters couldn't make
it.
"I thought it was just
media hype," said Stacia
Kopplin, who was flee-
ing her financial services
job shortly after noon
to catch a train home to


the suburbs.
Schools were closed in
Minnesota, Wisconsin and
Illinois, where officials
urged caution on slick
roads. In western Wiscon-
sin, a semi-trailer slid off
a snow-covered interstate
near Menomonie and into
the Red Cedar River, killing
one person. The search for
a second person, believed
to be a passenger, was sus-
pended overnight.
Airlines canceled more
than 1,100 flights at Chi-
cago airports, prompt-
ing delays and closures
at others. Airlines along
the storm's projected
path were already cut-
ting flights too, including
about 450 on Wednesday,

most of them at Dulles and
Reagan National airports'
in the Washington area,
according to FlightAware.
com. Daniel Baker, CEO of
the flight-tracking service,
said he expected the num-
bers to rise.
In Chicago, officials
worked to keep Lake
Shore Drive safe. The Feb-
ruary 2011 blizzard em-
barrassed the city when
hundreds of cars and
buses were entombed in
snow on the roadway that
runs along Lake Michi-
gan. Many people were
trapped overnight.
City government took
steps to. prevent a re-
peat. Officials opened a
removable barrier in the
roadway's median to al-
low emergency vehicles
quicker access to trouble


spots. Plows and salt-
spreading trucks were in
easier striking distance of
Lake Shore Drive, and they
started treating the road-
way hours before snow
began falling.
Elsewhere, some were
taking the snow in stride.
"It's not that bad at all,"
said 47-year-old Alicia Al-
drete, who was out walk-
ing her dog in Madison,
Wis. "Just make sure you
shovel immediately, put
lots of salt on the ground
and also store lots of food
in case of emergency."
Dave Koch, manager at
Paul's Tavern in Dubuque,
Iowa, said business was
surprisingly busy Tuesday
afternoon as people came
in to escape the snow. At
least 5 inches of snow had
fallen.

Sthe trip. His mail carrier
had saved the day.
"It was a shining mo-
ment for the postal ser-
vice," Williams said. "Post-
al carriers get a lot of grief
and complaints, criticism
over every little thing
that might go wrong on a
route; if the mail is later
being delivered, or what
have you, they're going to
hear about it. I'd just like
to say that we as a com-
munity ought to give this
young man an atta-boy.
He could have just kept to
his route and let us wait
for 911 to get there; but
I'm pretty sure that if he
had, the fire crews would
have had a situation on


their hands, trying to get
into the woods and put
out a big fire in there. If
it had gotten across the
ditch, it would have been
a real mess."
Bailey said he and other
postal workers are glad
to help where they can,
and said he had bought
the military shovel in part
because he's seen a lot
of circumstances on his
route that let him know a
few emergency supplies
could come in handy. He's
also got chains, various
tools, and a fire ax and
extinguisher; he might
have had to use those last
two if the fire had grown
bigger than it was when he
found it.

ful to Bailey for snuffing
out what could have de-
veloped into a major fire,
and that he thinks carriers
deserve more respect and

On the first day of the

Two years ago, Rep. Den-
nis Baxley, an Ocala Re-
publican, led a drive to
change voting laws. His
bill, which was passed by
the Legislature and signed
by Gov. Rick Scott, reduced
early voting time, cracked
down on voter-registration
drives and made voters use
provisional ballots if they
updated their name or ad-
dress at the polling place.
"No election is ever go-
ing to be perfect," Baxley
said on Tuesday. "They're
always going to be close in
Florida. But I believe this
bill goes a very long way to
correcting and preventing
problems that can occur in
the election process."
House Speaker Will
Weatherford, a Wesley
Chapel Republican, told
reporters that "the Legis-
lature has some responsi-
bility for some of the chal-
lenges we had in 2012."
"That's why we passed
(this bill) on the first day,"
he added. "We're not going
to let any grass grow under
our feet."

Hugo Chavez, fiery Venezuelan leader, dies at 58


The Associated Press

CARACAS, Venezuela
- President Hugo Chavez
was a fighter. The former
paratroop commander
and fiery populist waged
continual "battle for his
socialist ideals and out-
smarted his rivals time and
again, defeating a coup
attempt, winning re-elec-
tion three times and using
his country's vast oil wealth
to his political advantage.
A self-described "subver-
sive," Chavez fashioned
himself after the 19th
Century independence
leader Simon Bolivar and
renamed his country the
Bolivarian Republic of
Venezuela.
He called himself a
"humble soldier" in a
battle for socialism and
against U.S. hegemony.
He thrived orn confronta-
tion with Washington and
his political opponents at


home, and used those con-
flicts to rally his followers.
Almost the only adver-
sary it seemed he couldn't
beat was cancer. He died
Tuesday in Caracas at
4:25 local time after his
prolonged illness. He was
58.
During more than 14
years in office, his leftist
politics and grandiose style
polarized Venezuelans.
The barrel-chested leader
electrified crowds with his
booming voice, and won
admiration among the
poor with government so-
cial programs and a folksy,
nationalistic style.
His opponents seethed
at the larger-than-life
character who demonized
them on television and
ordered the expropriation
of farms and businesses.
Many in the middle class
cringed at his bombast
and complained about
rising crime, soaring

economic controls, housing, free health clinics
Chavez used his coun- and education programs.
try's vast oil wealth to Poverty declined, during
launch social programs Chavez's presidency amid
that included, state-run a historic boom in oil


earnings, but critics said
he failed to use the wind-
fall of hundreds of billions
of dollars to develop the
country's economy.
Inflation soared and
the homicide rate rose to
among the highest in the
world
Before his struggle with
cancer, he appeared on
television almost' daily,
frequently speaking for
hours and breaking into
song or philosophical dis-
course. He often wore the
bright red of his United
Socialist Party of Venezu-
ela, or the fatigues and red
beret of his army days. He
had donned the same uni-
form in 1992 while leading
an ill-fated coup attempt
that first landed him in
jail and then launched his
political career.
The rest of the world
watched as 'the country
with the world's biggest
proven oil reserves took a


turn to the left under its un-
conventional leader, who
considered himself above
all else a revolutionary.
"I'm still a subversive,"
the president told The As-
sociated Press in a 2007 in-
terview, recalling his days
as a rebel soldier. "I think
the entire world has to be
subverted."
Chavez was a mas-
ter communicator and
savvy political strategist,
and managed to turn his
struggle against cancer
into a rallying cry, until
the illness finally defeated
him.
From the start, he billed
himself as the heir of Boli-
var, who led much of South
America to independence.
He often spoke beneath a
portrait of Bolivar and pre-
sented replicas of the lib-
erator's sword to allies. He
built a soaring mausoleum
in Caracas to house the re-
mains of"El Libertador."

The rebels continued to

If successful, it would be


the first city they would

Americans control
conclave message
VATICAN CITY- The
two American cardinals
sat on the stage fielding
questions from the world's
news media on everything
from the delayed arrival of
some of their colleagues
to their own wardrobe
choices if elected pope.
Most experts doubt the
upcoming conclave will
select an American pope,
but the U.S. cardinals are
already exerting a surpris-
ing amount of control over
the message simply by
talking.

Lady Indians open tourney


against familiar foe in FSCJ


BY DUSTIN KENT

The No. 1 0 Chipola Lady
Indians (23-5) will begin
their quest for a state cham-
pionship tonight when they
take on No. 24 Florida State
College at Jacksonville (23-
7) at 6 p.m. in a quarterfinal
game of the FCSAA state

The game is a rematch of
a regular season matchup
between the teams Nov. 30
that was won by FSCJ 76-
66, which was the first loss
of the season for the Lady
Indians.
Chipola was miss-
ing third-leading scorer
Lashonda Littleton in that
game due to injury, but the
Lady Indians come into this
game as healthy as they've
been this season and with
some extra motivation in
mind.
"This matchup ha s rele-
vance to us because it puts
a little revenge in my kids'
minds," LadyIndians coach
Greg Franklin said. "This is
the only team out of the
conference that we lost to,
so it's an important game
for us. No. 1, you want to
survive and advance, but it

"At the same time, if you

something is fundamen-

ready to play either way."
The Lady Indians won 12
of 14 games after the loss to


FSCJ, but they ended the
regular season on a sour
note, dropping two of their

Mcllroy tells SI: Leaving course a mistake


The Associated Press

PALM BEACH GARDENS,
Fla. Rory Mcllroy says he
should have finished his
second round at the Hon-
da Classic, telling Sports Il-
lustrated magazine that "it
was not the right thing to
do" to walk out after eight
holes of his second round.
Mcllroywas 7-over for the
round and headed toward
another missed cut when
he hit his second shot into
the water on the 18th and'
abruptly withdrew with-
out finishing the hole. On
his way to the parking lot,
he reporters that his head
was not in the right place.,
He later issued a statement
that his wisdom tooth was
causing pain.
"It was a reactive deci-
sion," McIlroy .told the
magazine in a telephone
interview Sunday night.
"What I should have done
is take my drop, chip it on,
try to make a 5 and play my
hardest on the back nine,


even if I shot 85. What I did
was not good for the tour-
nament, not good for the
kids and the fans who were
out there watching me. It
was not the right thing to
do."
The 23-year-old from
Northern Ireland said his
lower wisdom teeth are
growing sideways and
he has been prescribed a
painkiller, which he did
not use Friday. Even so, he
said it was frustration over
his swing that led to him
leaving.
Mcllroy switched to Nike
. equipment late last year
after signing an endorse-
ment contract said to be
upward of $20 million a
year.- The world's No. 1-
player says his swing has
been a bigger problem
than the new clubs, and
he was practicing with
swing coach Michael Ban-
non the afternoon that he
withdrew.
McIlroy said he did not
read any stories about his


departure over the week-
end because "whatever
people are saying, I proba-
bly already said to myself."
He is playing the Cadil-
lac Championship at Doral
this week and is to speak
to the media on Wednes-
day. McIlroy is assured
of playing four rounds in
this World Golf Cham-
pionship (which has no
cut) for the first time all
year. He missed the cut in
Abu Dhabi, lost in the first
round of the Match Play
Championship and played
only 26 holes of the Honda
Classic.
McIlroy, who has joined
Tiger Woods in the Nike
stable and has studied
the 14-time major cham-
pion his whole life, said he
wishes he could have been
like Woods on Friday.
"He might be the best
athlete ever, in terms of
his ability to grind it out,"
McIlroy told the magazine.
"I could have a bit more of
that, if I'm honest."

Chipola
From Page 1B
It was easily the worst
loss of the season for the
Lady Indians, who had
lost their previous three
conference games by a to-
tal of four points.
Franklin said he gave his
players three days off last
week to try to recover and
regroup physically and
mentally, and he thinks
the time away has served
his team well.
"I think the week off did
us some good and let us
get rejuvenated and ready
to make a push," he said.
"Ultimately, we're look-
ing at having to win three
games in four days, so we


Milton H.


have to get our legs un-
der us and get our minds
right. I thought we had a
glazed look in' our eyes
against Gulf Coast, so it
was good for us to have
that time off."
FSCJ by contrast comes
into the tournament on
a hot streak, having won
13 of its last 14 games to
end the regular season,
including five in a row.
Sophomore guard Shar-
mayne Edwards leads the
team in scoring with 16.3
.points per game, while
Brittany Wright is sec-
ond with 10.3 points per
game.
Franklin said he has
been impressed by both
players.
"(Edwards) is avery good
player and so is (Wright).

They're both very capable
of shooting the three and
they like to take it off the
bounce to the.hoop," the
coach said. "They're not
real tall, but they're very
strong, so we have to
make sure we put a body
and try to keep them out
of the lane."
FSCJ employs a. lot of
pressing and trapping
defense and plays a fast-
paced style while rotating
10 players, which presents
a major challenge to the
Lady Indians, who play
only seven players and
have been out-sized and
out-numbered all season.
Franklin said that his
team won't mind the fast


pace and that his players
have plenty of experience
this year playing teams
with more depth.
"I think we're used to
that by this point," the
coach said. "We've only
got seven, but we've got
seven who will work hard
arid play hard for 40 min-
utes. There's no doubt in
my mind that they'll be
ready for that.
"We just have to make
sure we handle the ball
and don't make silly mis-
takes. We can't let them
get to the 50-50 balls, we

Buckeyes open practice, Meyer discusses needs


The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio
- Most of the most no-
table players from a team
that went 12-0 last season
are back for Ohio State in
2013.
Yet when spring prac-
tice begins on Tuesday,
second-year coach Urban
Meyer will still be search-
ing for leaders.
The players who set the
pace for last year's perfect
record weren't necessarily
the stars. Defensive end
John Simon was, but more
of them were like Zach
Boren, who split time be-,
tween linebacker and full-
back. They took owner-
ship of the Buckeyes and
helped erase the memo-
ries of a seven-loss season
in 2011.
"That's a huge void,"
Meyer said after the sea-
son about the departing
seniors. "We're in the eval-
uation'phase of who can
fill those roles. Make no
doubt about it now, that
that was a huge part of a
successful season."
So even though 'the
Buckeyes welcome back
Sports Illustrated cover
boy Braxton Miller, a ju-
nior quarterback already
trumpeted as a Heisman
Trophy contender, alopg
with running back Carlos
Hyde, linebacker Ryan
Shazier and cornerback
Bradley Roby, Meyer will
be wondering what play-
ers will pick up the slack
in the leadership depart.
Here are some fre-
quently-asked questions
by Ohio State fans, and a
guess at some answers, as
the Buckeyes begin their
spring workouts.
a What's the teams
strength? Since only four
of the players listed on the
two-deep offensive depth
chart for the season-end-
ing win against Michigan,

was a senior, it stands to
reason that the offense will
be ahead of the defense.
The only losses are TE
Jake Stoneburner, RT Reid
Fragel and FBs Boren and
Adam Homan. That leaves
a plethora of quality play-
ers on that side of the ball:
Miller, Hyde, receivers
Corey Brown and Devin
Smith and linemen Jack
Mewhort, Andrew Nor-
well, Corey Linsley and
Marcus Hall.
>> Where are the biggest
holes? Without question
on the defensive line. Si-
mon, Garrett Goebel and
Nathan Williams, three
vocal leaders, were se-
niors who have moved on.
On top of that, Johnathan
Hankins elected to give up
his final year of eligibil-
ity to jump into the NFL
draft.
Roby could have done
that, too, but decided to
return, along with safeties
Christian Bryant and C.J.
Barnett.


"You have the two safe-
ties back now, and you
have Roby. So that's three
out of four (spots in the
secondary) that's stable
- where our D-line is'not
stable, and our linebacker
position is not stable,"
Meyer said after Hankins
announced his decision
in January. "So you throw
the back end in that, we're
dealing with an unstable
defense. That's big."
Adolphus Washington,
Tommy Schutt, Joel Hale,
Michael Bennett, Noah


Spence and Steve Miller
are all holdovers who are
in the running for playing
time up front.
>> Any.other problem ar-
eas? Meyer referred to it
above: Linebacker. It's a
sign of how little faith he
had in the position a year
ago that midway through
the season he moved a
starting fullback (Boren)
to supplement the line-
backers and Boren
hadn't played there since
high school.
Shazier had a fine season

in 2012 but beyond him
there are question marks.
Camren Williams, Con-
ner Crowell, Joshua Perry
and David Perkins all
freshmen last fall will
be tested to see if they're
ready to take over.
>> How good can the
backfield be? Superlative.
Miller has been working
on his passing after com-
pleting 58 percent of his
throws for just 170 yards a
game. The powerful Hyde
should be even better this
season, with fifth-year se-
nior Jordan Hall pushing
'him for carries and play-
ing time. Rod Smith and
Bri'onte Dunn add depth
at running back, 'with
Kenny Guiton again back-
ing up Miller.
>> Everything OK in spe-
cial teams? Drew Basil is
back to handle the kicking
chores, but he may end up
doing double duty. Gone is
punter Ben Buchanan and
there really isn't a playerr
waiting in the wings.
> Any other new addi-
tions, or subtractions?


Let's not forget the 24
recruits signed in what
most scouting services
called one of the top-five
classes in the country.
Some of them may be able
to step in right away and
contribute, but that's al-
ways a risky proposition.
For now, let's just say that
Meyer and his staff added
someone to take over for
Miller (J.T. Barrett), some
promising backs (Dontre
Wilson, Ezekiel Elliott) and
defensive linemen (Joey
Bosa, Tyquan Lewis, Tracy
Sprinkle), a couple of ath-
letic corners (Eli Apple,
Cameron Burrows), a five-
star safety (Vonn Bell) and
some fleet receivers (Jalin
Marshall, Gareon Conley)
among many others.
Apple, Barrett, Burrows,
Lewis and Sprinkle are all
on campus and are learn-
ing the system this spring.
Oh, and you can include
this on your list of addi-
tions: Cornerbacks coach
Kerry Coombs is now
also in charge of special
teams.

Real Madrid eliminates United with pair of late goals


The Associated Press

MANCHESTER, Eng-
land Cristiano Ronaldo
sent Real Madrid into the
Champions League quar-
terfinals at the expense of
former club Manchester
United by clinching a 2-1
victory on Tuesday.
The forward completed
Madrid's comeback in the
69th minute to secure a 3-
2 aggregate win after the
Spanish champions took
advantage of United being
reduced to 10 men.
Madrid gifted United the
opener at the start of the
second half when Sergio
Ramos turned the ball into
his own net.
But the game swung back
in the visitors' favor in the
57th minute when Nani
was sent off for a studs-
up challenge on Alvaro
Arbeloa.
Madrid seized control
of the last-16 match with
two goals in three minutes,
with Luka Modric netting
a powerful equalizer in
the 66th before Ronaldo
tapped in the winner.
A game that started with
affection for the returning
Ronaldo and a 1,000th ap-
pearance for United's Ryan
Giggs ended in acrimony.
At the final whistle, Giggs
was angrily pointing at ref-
eree Cuneyt Cakir as Rio
Ferdinand 'sarcastically
clapped in his face, and
manager Alex Ferguson
made his fury clear on the
touchline.
It was a defeat that was
hard to take for United
- and there was sympathy
from Madrid manager Jose
Mourinho.
"We didn't play well, we
didn't deserve to win,"
Mourinho said. "Indepen-
dent of that (the red card)
the best team lost."
A man so often linked
with one day replacing the
71-year-old Ferguson at
Old Trafford endeared him-
self to the United crowd by
walking off the pitch with-
out celebrating.
The celebrations in
the ground came before
kickoff.
And the cheers for Giggs
on his 1,000th professional
game were even eclipsed
by the roars for Ronaldo on


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

on Tuesday.


his first appearance since
leaving for Madrid in 2009
for a world record 80 mil-
lion pounds (then $131
million).
They soon gave to jeers
as the affection faded for
the returning hero, whose
first-half contribution was
limited.
Instead, after Fergu-
son had praised Madrid's
counterattacking qualities
before the match, it was
United using their speed
on the break to unsettle
Madrid.
And the surprising deci-
sion to leaveWayne Rooney
on the bench appeared to
be vindicated as Danny
Welbeck was at the heart of
United's attacking threat.
But United struggled to
find a way past Diego Lo-
pez on a night when the
Madrid goalkeeper made
fine saves.
Ramos bundled Robin
van Persie's mis-hit ef-
fort clear after the striker
latched onto Giggs' fine
cross after 14 minutes.
Another delivery from
Giggs this time a corner
- led to Nemanja Vidic
heading against the post
and Welbeck's rebound
was smothered by Lopez,
who was in goal in place of
the injured Iker Casillas.
Madrid did find the net in
the 33rd through Gonzalo
Higuain but it was disal-
lowed due to Sergio Ramos'


foul onVan Persie.
At the other end came a
double save from Lopez,
first denying Van Persie's
powerful effort and then
Welbeck on the rebound.

Dortmund beats
Donetsk 3-0
to advance

DORTMUND, Germany
- Borussia Dortmund
beat Shakhtar Donetsk 3-
0 to reach the Champions
League quarterfinals on
Tuesday for the first time
since it won the competi-
tion in 1997.
Felipe Santana scored
in the 31stminute, Mario
Goetze in the 37th and
Jakub Blaszczykovski in the
59th to complete the vic-
tory that sent the German
champion through 5-2 on
aggregate.
In the other Round of 16
match on Tuesday, Real
Madrid beat Manchester
United 2-1 to advance 3-2
on aggregate.
The Champions League
is Dortmund's only chance
to win a trophy this season.
Dortmund achieved the
domestic double last sea-
son but has been eliminat-
ed from the German Cup by
Bayern Munich and was 17
points behind the Bavarian
side in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund was with-
out central defender Mats


Hummels, down with the
flu. But his replacement
Santana got Dortmund
rolling with the first goal.
Hummels scored the late
equalizer in the first leg in
Ukraine.
Santana rose above Yaro-
slav Rakitskiy to head in
Mario Goetze's corner.
Razvan Rat was on the line
but the shot went over his
head.
Only six minutes later,
Robert Lewandowski broke
through on the right and
sent in a perfect low cross
that Goetze knocked in.
Lewandowski, Dort-
mund's top scorer, missed
chances both before and
after Dortmund's two goals
in the first half.
Shakhtar came close to
scoring in the final min-
ute of the first half, when
Fernandinho tested Ro-
man Weidenfeller with an
angled shot but the Dort-
mund goalkeeper tipped it
over.
Shakhtar coach Mircea
Lacescu sent in Dougles
Costa at the start of the
second half and the speedy
midfielder gave a lift to his
team.
He made a threaten-
ing run from his own half,
sprinting past two Dort-
mund players before Wei-
denfeller thwarted his at-
tempt. Costa then narrowly
missed the target with a low
shot across the goal.

Big East football keeps $100m in split


The Associated Press

NEW YORK Big East
football schools will get
almost all of a $110 million
pot in a deal that will allow
seven departing basketball
schools to keep the name
Big East and start playing
in their own conference
next season, a person fa-
miliar with the negotia-
tions says.
The person spoke to
The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity
because the separation
agreementhas notyet been
finalized. That is likely to
happen by the end of the
week. The football schools
will receive approximately
$100 million under the
agreement, most of
which will go to holdover
members. Connecticut,
South Florida and
Cincinnati.
The basketball schools
will receive $10 million,
the Big East name and the
right to play their confer-
ence tournament at Madi-
son Square Garden.
The Big East's stash of
cash has built up in recent
years through a combina-
tion of exit fees, entry fees
and money the league's
members earned in the
JNCAA men's basketball


tournament. Since 2011,
the Big East has lost 16
schools that were either
members or dropped out
before playing a game.
That figure includes the
seven Catholic basketball
schools.
The so-called Catholic 7,
which is expected to add
at' least two more mem-
bers before it begins com-
petition in the 2013-14
school year, is made up of
Georgetown, St. John's, Vil-
lanova, Seton Hall, Provi-

Fox unveils new network to change ESPN

Fox unvefls new network to challenge ESPN


The Associated Press

NEW YORK For any-
one who thinks TV is al-
ready saturated with sports
of every stripe, stay tuned.
Here comes Fox with an
in-your-face challenge to
ESPN a 24-hour sports
cable network called Fox
Sports 1, set to launch Aug.
17.
"ESPN, quite frankly, is a
machine," Fox Sports ex-
'ecutive vice president Bill
Wanger said Tuesday in
announcing the venture.
"They have very consistent
ratings,i obviously huge
revenue. We're coming irn
trying to take on the es-
tablishmert. It's no differ-
ent than Fox News or Fox
Broadcasting back in the
'80s. We're going to have to
scratch and claw our way
all the way to the top."
To do that, Fox executives
are confident they have
enough live events, with
rights to college basket-
ball and football, NASCAR,
soccer and UFC fights. In
its first year, the new net-
work will broadcast nearly
5,000 hours of competition
and news.
Fox owns rights to many
Big 12, Pac-12 and Confer-
ence USA basketball and
football games. Its soccer
deals include UEFA Cham-
pions League and the
men's and women's World
Cups from 2015-22.
Starting in 2014, FS1 will
start broadcasting Major
League Baseball games,
including part of the post-
season. It will show some
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
races as early as 2015, with
other NASCAR events on
the air from the startup.
"We believe we've
amassed enough live
events and can package
and put programming
around it where we can
have scale," Fox Sports
co-President Randy Freer,
said. "We can have signifi-
cance. We can be a major
player in the market."
However, unlike ESPN's
lineup, there's no NBA, no
SEC football, no ACC bas-

ketball and, the biggest
attraction of all, no NFL
games. On that last point,
Wanger was quick to add:
"Yet."
Still to be determined
is whether the NFL sells
some Thursday night
games separately from its
NFL Network package. If
it does, everyone will try to
buy a piece of the action.
That will be the case for
any rights deals that come
along; there aren't many,
with long-term pacts now
the norm. NBC and CBS
already have, their own
cable sports networks,
and Turner is also a factor.
Fox Sports co-President
Eric Shanks mentioned
the NBA, Big Ten and U.S.
Open tennis as appealing
properties whose con-
tracts expire in the next
several years.
FS1 has two main chal-
lenges, he said. One is pro-
ducing enough alluring
live events to draw viewers,
and he thinks the network
is already in good shape to
do that. The other is iner-
tia: Fans accustomed to
tuning to ESPN must be
persuaded to switch to a
different network.
"People need to over time
*feel like there's a channel
number in their head that
they can go to as an alter-
native to one of the more
powerful sports channels
out there," he said.
Will they watch nightly
highlights on something
other than "SportsCenter"
? FS1 will try to find out
with its own news show,
which will look more like
Fox's NFL pregame cover-
age than ESPN's corner-
stone program.
"We -like our position,"
ESPN spokesman Josh
Krulewitz said. "We have
always had vigorous com-
petition so there is really
nothing substantially new
here. Others are, however,
beginning to recognize
what we have long known:
The power of live sports,
especially in light of tech-
nological advances, is
substantial and brings tre-

the final 12-plus min-
utes to finish unbeaten at

school history.
Erick Green scored 25
points on 10 of 19 shoot-
ing to lead Virginia Tech
(13-17, 4-13), which hasn't
beaten a team in the up- ."

game, Green and the Hok-
ies found a way to keep :

mendous value in today's
entertainment landscape."
ESPN has eight cable
networks that combine for
almost 30,000 hours of live
coverage.
FS1 will be converted
from Speed TV, a motor-
sports network, and vill
be available in 90 million
homes, compared with al -
most 99 million for ESPN
and ESPN2.
And in what might seem
odd for a company known
for drawing a young audi-
ence, Regis Philbin will
host a weekday sports talk
show for the new network.
The 81-year-old Philbin
jokingly pretended to be
hard ofhearingwhen ques-
tions came up about this at
the press conference.
Wanger noted that "Live!
With Regis and Kelly" did
well in younger demo-
graphics before Philbin left
that show in late 2011.
"Regis has appeal from
young to old," Wanger
said. "That's why we want
him."
Fox plans to use its
"double box" format for
showing commercials dur-
ing live action for sports
events. Kicking off the cov-
erage on Aug. 17 will be
NASCAR Camping World'
Truck Series race from
Michigan and a UFC event
in prime time..
Fox executives had talked
about potentially launch-
ing a sports network for
years, As DVRs made live
events even more valuable,
the timing was right once
the company was able to
line up enough broadcast
rights. And not having a
cable sports partner could -
hurt the main Fox network
in negotiations, Freer said.
Fox has used cable chan-
nel FX in the past to show
some sports.
The network wasn't ready
to announce its deal with
the new basketball confer-
ence formed by breakaway
Big East schools, but Fox's
executives were happy to
talk up the ratings draw
the league will provide.
Freer called it an "iconic

basketball brand" that will
immediately be one of the
top hoops conferences in
the country.
"They're very historic,
high-profile teams. The
Georgetowns of the world
and so on, St. John's, Vil-
lanova etc.," Wanger said.
"It would be a coup if that
deal did happen."
Fox is airing the 2014 Su-
per Bowl in the New York
area, a valuable opportu-
nity to promote the new
network. Its 22 regional
channels will also offer
regular chances to direct
viewers to FS1.
A report by RBC Capi-
tal Markets analyst David
Banks says that while FS1
may not match ESPN right
away, it can still thrive
without doing so. Banks
writes that a "modestly
successful" venture would
more than quadruple Fox's
monthly subscriber fees
from what Speed received
and increase ad revenue
from $90 million to $460
million.
"It's going to take us a
while, and we're aware
of this fact," Fox' Sports
Chairman David Hill said.
"We're not expecting to
knock ESPN off in the first
week or two. ... It's going to
be a solid slog."

Annie's IMailbox


Dear Annie: My boyfriend's parents
are truly wonderful people, but they
have taught their son to rely solely on
them. He is in his 50s, and they still pay
his bills and give him loans, often for
"toys" rather than something necessary.
I am self-sufficient. I borrow money
from no one, pay my bills and am on a
limited budget. I knew my boyfriend was
rather self-centered before we moved in
together. We discuss nothing about our
household, but he talks to his parents
abofit our finances. When they tell him to
do something, he complies, even if I am
against.it.
This is causing problems in our rela-
tionship. I am afraid my only.option is to
leave. I love him, but I feel I could never
measure up to his parents, and they will
keep him a little boy forever. Our rela-
tionship needs to move to the next level,
but it is impossible with them hanging
on for dear life.
FRUSTRATED

Dear Frustrated: A man in his 50s who
still expects his parents to pay his bills
and buy him toys is not a responsible
adult, and we cannot promise he ever
will be. Unless you can convince him or


Bridge


In this deal, West leads the diamond jack
against seven spades. South wins with his
ace and runs a torrent of six trumps and
three hearts. What should West discard?
In theory, North's jump to four spades
denied a first- or second-round control. But
with a true Yarborough (no card higher than
a nine), he felt justified in a slight fib. South
then hoped he would be able to avoid a dia-
mond loser; maybe partner would have the
queen or a doubleton diamond.
Since dummy had no help, South had to
run his winners, starting with his trumps,
and hope that the defenders would err.
West started with four painless pitches:
two hearts and two clubs. Then, though,
when the three top hearts came, he was less
comfortable. He was not sure whether to
throw diamonds or clubs. What was the key
clue?
If South had started with a doubleton
club, he would have ruffed the second in the
dummy. So, since South held at most one
club, West had to stay glued to his diamonds.


his parents that their indulgence is not in
his best interests, you will be fighting an
uphill battle. Sorry.

Dear Annie: I am a recovering meth
addict. I've been clean for more than five
years. However, during my druggie days,
I was pregnant five times. I miscarried all
of the babies due to my addiction. I am
very ashamed of my past. Every day, Ilive
with the guilt of what I did to my inno-
cent unborn children.
In the past five years, God has blessed
me with two wonderful sons, whom I
love more than anything. But how do I
deal with the guilt? I have tried talking to
friends and family, but Im judged a lot.
-W.

Dear W.: Speak to someone who can be
impartial about your past and help you
deal with your guilt in a way that allows
you to forgive yourself. Your doctor can
refer you to a counselor, or you could
contact any graduate school counseling
department, medical school psychology
department, United Way, the YMCA, the
Samaritan Institute (samaritaninstitute.
org) and the Abraham Low Self-Help
Systems at lowselfhelpsystems.org.

Horoscope
PISCES (Feb. 20-March
20) If you employ a little
elbow grease, something
you want could come
within your grasp. Don't
rely on Lady Luck to do
everything for you.
ARIES (March 21-April
19) You have a friend
who will come to your aid
when you need it. Your
pal will help quietly, but
don't let that stop you from
showing your gratitude.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) -Your brain will be
like a sponge, enabling you
to absorb whatever knowl-
edge you need.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)'
- One of your best assets
is your ability to fit into
others' projects, making
your input and presence
an integral part of the
whole.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
-You've done your best to
improve your negotiating
skills. This will become evi-
dent when an agreement
needs hammering out.
LEO (July23-Aug. 22)
- Someone you helped
in the past has been eager
to repay you. What he or
she ends up doing will
be worth more than your
original act.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- Something pleasant, as
well as extraordinary is
likely to develop through
the good offices of certain
contacts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
- The life span of an en-
deavor can be expanded if
you seize the opportunity.
It may take cooperation
from your associates.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
22) If there is something
important that you want to
discuss with another, the
best place to do so would
be in a social setting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
23-Dec. 21) Something
that could enhance your
material interests might
develop. Don't waste time
being shocked.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) Some good news
you've longed for might
finally arrive. If this is the
case, chances are it'll come
sometime after lunch.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
19) Instead of trying
hard to make things hap-
pen, let events take their
natural course.

Miami has chance to clinch outright ACC title


The Associated Press

CORAL GABLES -
Last fall, when Miami
Hurricanes basketball still
operated in the shadows
of the football program,
coach Jim Larranaga
dropped in on a meeting
of university officials and
predicted a big season for
his team.
"I went to the board of
trustees," Larranaga re-
calls, "and I said, 'I'm the
basketball coach. I don't
know if you guys know that
or not. But we're going to
have perhaps the best sea-
son in school history.'"
Larranaga was right.
The Hurricanes cracked
the Top 25 in late January,
climbed to a school-re-
cord No. 2 a month later
and have earned at least a
share of their first Atlantic
Coast Conference cham-
pionship with two games
to go, both at home.
That ensures plenty of
motivation for Miami to
bounce back quickly from
Saturday's thrilling but
wrenching loss at Duke.
"These kids are pretty
resilient," Larranaga says.
"They know we've got a lot
more basketball ahead of
US."
Now ranked No. 6, the
Hurricanes (23-5, 14-
2) play Georgia Tech on
Wednesday and Clemson
on Saturday. Win either
game, and they clinch
their first outright league
basketball title.
Miami would also clinch
with loss by second-place
Duke against Virginia Tech
on Tuesday night.
Larranaga says that while
he and his coaches ex-
pected such success from
the senior-laden team, his

vincing. A road victory Jan.
10 against North Carolina
did the job.
"When we won at Caro-
lina, I could see everything
changed," Larranaga says.
"They really believed that
if were good enough to
win at Chapel Hill, we
should be good enough to
win anywhere."
They went on to win
their first 13 league games
before losing at Wake For-
est. While the Hurricanes
have now dropped two
consecutive road games,
they're 13-0 in Coral Ga-
bles, where six seniors will
play for the final time this
week.
"It's pretty exciting, but
sad at the same time," se-
nior guard Durand Scott
says. "The best thing I can
do at this point is get two
wins in this building."


For a change, the Hurri-
canes enjoy a considerable
home-court advantage
thanks to their burgeoning
bandwagon. A succession
of sellout crowds trans-
formed the traditionally,
sleepy gym into a raucous
environment.
"It has been great to see
thdse stands filled up, and
everybody cheering for
you really'gives you a lot of
energy," junior guard Rion
Brown says. "I hope they
do it for the last two games
for the seniors."
Brown, the son of former
Georgia Tech player Tico
Brown, came off the bench
to score a career-high 22
points when Miami beat
the Yellow Jackets 62-49
in January. That game
marked the start of a con-
ference season that has
been a disappointment for
the Yellow Jackets (15-13,


5-11).
"We expect them to give
us their hardest," Brown
says. "We've had that tar-
get on our back this whole
year. We definitely expect
their best, so we have to
get ready to give them our
best."
The Hurricanes know
the time is near to be at
their peak.
'"We're healthy; we're
playing well," Larranaga
says. "But I think we can
play better than we have.
We're not done yet. We can
get better."
The Hurricanes need
improvement in particular
from senior center Reg-
gie Johnson, who has shot
3 for 15 in the past three
games. Against Duke he
went 0 for 5 and did not
score.
Larranaga also looks for
improvement on defense.


Florida seniors want net-cutting home finale


The Associated Press

GAINESVILLE Flor-
ida's Senior Night could
end with a net-cutting
ceremony.
It would be the ideal
home finale for Kenny
Boynton, Erik Murphy and
Mike Rosario the team's
only seniors and its top
three scorers.
Together, they have the
11th-ranked Gators poised
to become just the fourth
team in school history to
clinch the Southeastern
Conference title outright.
Florida (23-5, 13-3) needs
to win one of its remain-
ing two games to wrap up
the league title. Of course,
the Gators would much
rather accomplish the feat
at home Wednesday night
against Vanderbilt (13-15,
7-9).
"That'd be huge," said
Murphy, who also won
the SEC outright two years
ago. "That'd be something
really special for the team
to accomplish that. Most
of the guys weren't here the
first time', so to do it again
would be something spe-
cial, especially in my last
year and the possibility of
doing it on Senior Night."
For Boynton, Murphy
and Rosario, getting to this
point was hardly routine.
Boynton was a can't-miss
prospect coming out of
high school in 2009 and
was widely considered a,


one-and-done player. In-
stead, he spent four years
in Gainesville and endured
constant criticism for fail-
ing to live up to the hype.
He ranks second on
Florida's all-time scoring
list with 1,940 points and
first in 3-pointers made
(320). Still, he's averaging a
career-low 12.5 points this
season and is shooting just
24.5 percent (13 of 53) from
behind the arc over his last
nine games.
"I think it's a mind thing,"
Boynton said. "I can't say
it's different from this year
to that year. From this year
to last year, I don't think
anything's changed in my
shot.'I've been in the gym if
not more this year than last
year trying to get it back
right, so I think principally
it's probably a mind thing."
Despite his shooting
slump, Boynton has been a
more complete player. He's
averaging 3.3 rebounds
and 3.0 assists both ca-
reer highs and has just
37 turnovers.
But his failure to become
the go-to guy, the kind of
player who can take over
games down the stretch,
has overshadowed his
accomplishments.
Given that he was on the
floor for both NCAA tour-
nament collapses the last
two years blown leads
against Butler in 2011 and
Louisville in 2012 Boyn-
ton would like nothing

more than secure his leg-
acy with a trip to the Final
Four and more.
"I think everything hap-
pens for a reason," he said.
"In the four years I've been
here, I think I've gotten
better as a player. I defi-
nitely didn't think when I
signed here I'd be here four
years, but I am here and I
decided to stay.... I've tried
my best to win as much as
I could. Definitely I want to
go out this year as a winner
with winning a national
championship."
Murphy considered leav-
ing Florida after playing
sparingly his first two sea-
sons, and even after he de-
cided to stay, his career got
off track following his 2011
arrest for allegedly break-
ing into a car outside a bar.
Murphy was suspended
for much of the offseason,
reinstated after accept-
ing a deferred prosecution
agreement in which he
agreed to pay restitution,
perform community ser-
vice and complete a sub-
stance abuse evaluation
program.
He dedicated himself'to
getting better on and off
the court and he did.
Murphy has become one


of the best power forwards'
in the country. He leads the
SEC in 3-point shooting,
averaging 46.4 percent,
and has become more ver-
satile. He's averaging a ca-
reer-best 12.4 points and
5.0 rebounds and already
has topped last year's totals
for assists and steals.
"There's so much I can
take away, just life les-
sons, basketball lessons,"
Murphy said. "It's been a
crazy four years. It's been a
roller-coaster ride. But it's
been the best four years of
my life. There's so much I
can take away from it."
Rosario has made the
most improvement in the
shortest time.
The former Rutgers
standout transferred to
Florida in 2010, sat out one
year and was hardly a fac-
tor last season. He missed
more than two dozen prac-
tices, prompting Donovan
to essentially call him soft,
and had everyone guessing
how much he would con-
tribute as a senior.
But he's been a pleasant
surprise for the Gators. He
leads the team in scoring
at 12.9 points a game and
has topped that number in
eight of the last 10 games.
