Machen lobbies state for disease response center at UF


* MACHEN SAYS THE STATE IS

UF officials want the state to

In a column that "appeared


in several Florida newspapers
Sunday, UF President Bernie
Machen implored legislators
to fund the university's fight
against the "ominous threat" of
new diseases.
The planned facility is called
the Institute for Advanced Study

would be similar to the national
Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention.
"Although the high-profile
example is bird flu, an increasing


number of lesser-known but still
dangerous pathogens await their
opportunity to wreak havoc,"
Machen wrote in a column that
appeared in The Miami Herald
and the Tallahassee Democrat,
among others.
He named bioterrorism, SARS,
dengue fever, Q fever, citrus can-
ker and eastern equine encepha-

climate, the influx of visitors and
heavy trade with South America
make it the most susceptible area
in the nation, Machen wrote.

CITY COMMISSION

Campus Master Plan targets student cars, housing


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

UF freshman will not have cars on campus
if Gainesville city commissioners get their
way.
The city made 13 pages of suggestions
that they want UF to include in their Campus
Master Plan for 2005-2015, and they unani-
mously voted Monday to send the comments
to UF officials.
The master plan outlines the goals UF will
pursue in the next 10 years, such as the future
of transportation and housing. It also outlines
the anticipated growth of UF and its sur-
rounding areas.


A team led by Gainesville Public Works
Director Teresa Scott reviewed the master
plan, which they received in December.
Some of their suggestions include increas-
ing on-campus housing, prohibiting freshmen
from having vehicles on campus and initiating
a student fee based on credit hours to be paid
to the local fire department for on-campus
services.
The team also commended UF for its plan
to support the city's efforts to reduce problems
created by students in single-family neighbor-
hoods near campus.
Commissioner Warren Nielsen agreed
with the team's comment.
"A really great university is not going to
house its students in single-family neighbor-


hoods," Nielsen said.
This issue reflects the increasing com-
plaints the city has been receiving from resi-
dents regarding student neighbors.
"A really great university is not go-
ing to house its students in single-
family neighborhoods."
Warren Nielsen
Gainesville City Commissioner

Florida legislation requires the city to re-
view and comment on the UF Campus Master
Plan, since many of the items affect the city.
Florida law states this review is necessary
to increase communication and to coordinate


campus and city goals.
Linda Dixon, UF's planning manager, said
the university worked with city staff when
writing the plan.
"We hope that we've covered most of their
issues," Dixon said.
However, the city is still submitting 13
pages of comments to the university.
After UF receives the city's comments, they
are required to hold an information session
and at least two public hearings.
City Manager Russ Blackburn said the city
will then begin negotiating with UF and will
decide how to offset the negative impacts the
plan would have on the city.
The Board of Trustees, UF's highest govern-
ing body, will then decide on the plan.

* THE EAGLETS WILL BE PREPARED
FOR LIFE IN THE WILD.

By HANNAH REICHEL
Alligator Contributing Writer

After five years with a quiet nest,
George and Ariel are once again
the proud parents of three fluffy
eaglets, hatched Feb. 18, 19 and last
Wednesday at the SFCC Teaching
Zoo.
It is an exciting event for the zoo,
-said Jared Morgan, a student working
with the animal technology program.
"It's great for the eagles, and they
are showing natural behaviors," he
said, watching the new parents gently
feed a freshly shredded rat to the awk-
ward infants.
It's also great for the community
because people get to see the birds,


he said.
George and Ariel came to SFCC
from the UF College of Veterinary
Medicine, where they had been treat-
ed for injuries, according to a press
release.
The parents are responsible for the
care of the infants for the next five
weeks.
Then the eaglets will be moved to
the South Carolina Center for Birds
of Prey to prepare for life in the wild,
living out of sight of humans in nest-
ing boxes in the trees, according to the
release.
When they are 12 to 13 weeks old,
they will be released.
Admission to the SFCC Teaching
Zoo is free, and guided tours are avail-
able weekdays by an appointment
three days in advance, from 9 a.m. to
2 p.m. Guests are also welcome week-
ends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

SG elections kick off today


* STUDENTS CAN VOTE FROM COMPUTERS
AT ANY OF THE 16 POLLING LOCATIONS.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

In just two more days, the swarms of perky
political operatives will likely have departed
Turlington Plaza for good.
For now, however, expect a continuing inun-
dation of colorful party stickers as this Spring's
Student Government race enters its final lap.
Today marks students' first chance to vote in
the election, which will determine next year's
executive officials and about half the members of
Student Senate.
The other half of Student Senate is voted into
office during the Fall.
Both undergraduate and graduate students
are eligible to cast ballots in the race, and voting
willcontinue through Wednesday.
Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and
Wednesday. Students can vote from computers at
any of the 16 approved polling locations.
"It's not like it was before, when journalism
students had to vote at the journalism building,"
said SG Office Manager Sandy Vernon.
This SG election is the second ever to utilize an


LOCAL


intranet-based voting system.
The system was first put into place during Fall's
Senate race, but voters experienced numerous tech-
nical issues when attempting to cast their ballots.
However, Supervisor of Elections Erika Kane
said she is confident that none of those problems
will reoccur in this race.
"We've had a test run, and everything ran
smoothly," she said. "We typed in student IDs and
checked to see if the
Student Government correct ballots showed
up."
During the Fall
election, computer malfunctions caused several
students to receive incorrect ballots.
For this election, students will vote according
to their year or major.
In addition to executive candidates, underclass-
men can vote for either freshman or sophomore
representatives. Upperclassmen, meanwhile, vote
for senators from specific colleges.
Election results will be announced at the
Orange & Brew in the Reitz Union on Wednesday
night.
Kane, who is overseeing her first election, said
this Spring's election process is designed for voter
convenience.
"If [students are] in the middle of.voting and
they have to run to class, their ballot is saved,"
she said.

City faces dilemma regarding meals for the homeless


By BOBBY EAGLE
Alligator Contributing Writer

On a cool Sunday afternoon, Pastor John Deane joined
hands in prayer with a large cirde of homeless people before
serving everyone a dinner of baked chicken, bread and pasta in
downtown Gainesville.
Deane is president of Warriors for Christ, one of about
four groups that serve nearly 200 free meals every Sunday in
Gainesville's Downtown Plaza.
However, the groups may soon have to relocate because
area businesses have been complaining about the large crowds
of homeless people who line up for free meals.


Deane, who spent three and a half months without a home,
said the meals are crucial because they provide a rare opportu-
nity for the homeless to have a warm meal.
"Its not easy being homeless," he said. "We want to provide
an opportunity for them to forget about what they're going
through."
There are so many homeless in need of these meals that
sometimes the groups serving them must turn a hundred or
more people away, Deane said.
The group only has permission to serve the meals until the
end of February, according to a letter sent by the city.
"The businesses that are downtown have had this concern
that the meals on the plaza detract.from the downtown, and it
creates a problem," said Jim Hencin, block grant manager for


Bruce Dunn enjoys a hearty meal from Warriors for Christ, a church group feeding homeless people in downtown
Gainesville every Sunday. The program may be relocated due to business owners' complaints.


the city of Gainesville.
The city is trying to find a "dignified setting" for people to
serve and eat the food, Hencin said, such as a location with rest
rooms and tables. In the Downtown Plaza, people can only sit
and eat on the ground or on benches.
"There are different facets to the issue, and unfortunately
we have yet to come up with an ideal solution," he said.
One downtown business that has voiced its concern to the
city is Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille, next to the Plaza.
During the Sunday meals, General Manager Michael
Wainer said several homeless people have come by Harry's,
stealing food from the plates of patrons seated outside and
even using the restaurant's rest rooms to bathe. Wainer said
this has kept patrons from dining outside.
"It's an unfortunate situation," he said. "We have an addi-
tional 50-plus seats outside that are not being used."
Despite these problems, Wainer said that the city is doing
the best it can and that the free meals are important.
Deane said any incidents that have occurred were simply
the result of the desperate situation in which some homeless
people find themselves.
This desperation, Deane said, is what fuels many of the
fights and disputes that sometimes occur during the Sunday
meals.
Deane said he and the groups providing the meals are con-
cerned that moving the meal site might have a negative impact,
such as an increase in violent incidents.
According to the letter from the city, Warriors for Christ
"may continue to feed the homeless at the Downtown Plaza
on Sunday evenings for the months of January and February
2006."
However, the end of February is not a deadline, and the
topic is open for discussion, said David Flaherty, director of
the Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Affairs. The city is trying to work with the groups to find a bet-
ter meal site, he said.
"Our intent is to go back to the four or five meal providers
and see if they think those sites are acceptable," he said. "We're
not trying to make anyone do anything."
Despite Deane's concern about a possible increase in vio-
lence at a new site, Flaherty said he is not aware of any differ-
ence in violent incidents on the Downtown Plaza.
One homeless man said no matter where the food comes
from, it is important for those who are dependent on the
meals.
Antonio Fernandez, 41, has been homeless for the past
month and said the simple fact that people are trying to help is
what is really important.
"There's people trying to help each other out like this; I
mean, that means a lot," Fernandez said. "At least somebody
cares about people out here on the streets like this."

MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS

Islam Fair gives positive portrayal of Muslim culture


By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Alligator Writer
jdavison@alligator.org

UF students were invited to the
Reitz Union Colonnade to increase
their awareness of the Muslim cul-
ture -- one they say is not depicted
in the media.
Islam on Campus held its annual
Islam Fair on Monday as a part of'
Israel Awareness Month.
"I think that people are different
from each other, but I think that one
thing that links us all together is
that we all have culture," said Sakil
Hossain, organizer of the Islam Fair.
With the recent publication of
the controversial political cartoons
depicting the Islamic prophet,
Muhammad, Hossain said that he
wants to counteract negative por-
trayals with positive experiences for
people on campus.
"The only way is to give them ex-
amples of positivity," Hossain said.
"That's the main objective of Islam
on Campus to show people the
true nature of our religion and how
peaceful it is."


The violence on TV portrays
mainly isolated incidents, he said,
and for the most part Islamic culture
is very peaceful, as demonstrated in
a prayer on the Reitz Union Lawn.
Muslim students gathered to par-
ticipate in one of five daily prayers
that are part of the Muslim faith.
"We just wanted to show the
prayer to show that when you pray
in Islam, it doesn't matter who you
are," Hossain said. "It's not like the
rich people sit in the front and the
poor people sit in the back."
He said that the idea was to
show the Muslim equality and truth
within religious prayer.
Countries from the Middle East,
Asia, Europe and North America
were represented at the fair.
At various tables, students from
respective countries offered infor-

Editorial


Election Day

Lots of reasons to get

out and vote
After yesterday's editorial didn't endorse either of
the two presidential tickets, we realize that a lot of
people are a little put off.
After all, the presidential and vice presidential races are
usually the highlights of the SG election season.
This time, however, the presidential candidates are barely
differentiable. On the one hand, there's the SG insider. On the
other hand, there's the other SG insider. And the vice presi-
dential race is probably about even as well.
To put it bluntly, we're starting to get concerned about the
potential for low voter turnout.
But despite the fact that we're less than enthused about
the presidential tickets, there are still very real reasons to
head out to the polls today and tomorrow.
Susan Henriques, independent candidate for treasurer, is
still in the race. And as we mentioned yesterday, she's a great
pick. Her overwhelming experience earned her our endorse-
ment.
The Unite Party's senatorial candidates are also good se-
lections. Their platform is a little more achievable than their
Swamp Party counterparts'. They're also, for the most part,
not of the current political establishment, meaning they have
the potential to develop a lot of new and fresh ideas. And one
thing that SG desperately needs is a little rearranging.
But perhaps the most important item on the ballot is the
online voting initiative.
That's right. Now, students will get to decide for them-
selves whether online voting is an appropriate platform for
SG elections. And it's about time.
To us, the saga of online voting highlights everything that
is wrong with SG.
The story goes back for years, but the issue's latest chapter
started in last year's Spring election when the SG Supreme
Court blocked a proposed online voting initiative.
At the time, the Court wrote that it was unclear whether
the measure was an initiative or merely a nonbinding refer-
endum, despite the fact that the word "initiative" appeared
four times on the document, while the word "referendum"
was not to be found.
But the genie was pretty much out of the bottle by then,
so, in an effort to appease proponents of online voting, the
Student Senate formed a temporary committee to investi-
gate.
Of course, that committee met over the summer when
nobody was here. And despite the fact that online voting
would entail the same security measures that students use to-
pay tuition, the committee decided that online voting wasn't
secure enough.
So we were stuck having to vote on campus yet again in
the Fall elections. Computerized voting was a definite step
forward, but it pales in comparison to being able to vote from
home in your underwear.
And that's why we urge you all to go out and support
online voting either today or tomorrow.
Don't waste this opportunity to create change, because if
past events are any indication, there's no telling when you'll
get a chance like this again.
So even though we think the presidential tickets are
roughly equivalent, there are lots of other (Unite) candidates
and one very important initiative that need your support.
Don't let them down.

OPINIONS EDITOR


Op inions


Santorum typical o
M eet Rick Santorum, the junior senator from
Pennsylvania. Despite the best efforts of Dan
Savage, Santorum isn't a household name not
yet, anyway. But as the Senate's No. 3 Republican, he's one
of the most poverful men in Washington.
Santorum caused a minor scandal in 2003, when he
compared homosexual relationships to pedophilia and
"man-on-dog" bestiality. Now he's in hot water again, this
time over the Virginia home he shares with his wife and a
positively canine litter of six children.
The house, all 5,722 square feet of it, is actually quite
modest by Republican standards. Compared to the pres-
ident's ranch or Dick Cheney's opulent quarters onboard
the Death Star, it's practically a-shack.
Still, a $643,361 house seems a bit much for Santorum,
who makes $162,100 a year and claims to live "from pay-
check to paycheck." Good thing he has powerful friends.
In 2002, Santorum borrowed half a million dollars from
The Philadelphia Trust Company, a private bank with an
exclusive clientele. How exclusive? To qualify for a loan,
every client must have at least $250,000 in an investment
portfolio managed by Philadelphia Trust except for
Santorum, whose liquid assets total a mere $140,000.
Santorum, who sits on the Banking and Finance com-
mittees, has also received $24,000 in campaign contribu-
tions from executives at Philadelphia Trust. Sure, he
didn't meet the bank's loan requirements but what's
500 grand between friends?
For starters, it's a violation of Senate ethics rules.
Senators may not borrow money on terms unavailable to
the general public. At the very least, Santorum should lose
his position in the Senate leadership.
But that's not how the Republican Party works. Instead,
Santorum is the GOP's point man on ethics reform in the
Senate. They might as well have picked Jack Abramoff for
the job.

Since 2001, Santorum's fund-
raising committees have func-
tioned as the senator's private ATM. Trips to Arby's,
Burger King and even Starbucks (supposedly the turf of
latte-sipping liberal elitists) are routinely listed as valid
political expenditures.
Santorum has used campaign funds for other question-
able items, including $463,378 in back payments on credit
cards.
Just last weekend, the Better Business Bureau revealed
that Operation Good Neighbor, Santorum's charity, spent
most of its money on cushy jobs for campaign donors and
members of Santorum's staff. Only about a third of the
cash went to people in need.
A shady mortgage and free-Double Whoppers are bad
enough. But when a senator lines his cronies' pockets with
contributions intended for AIDS patients and homeless
people well, that's something else entirely.
Maybe former Sen. Bob Kerrey was on to something
when he said, "Santorum is Latin for 'asshole.'"
Unfortunately, Rick Santorum is all too typical of
the corruption and venality on display in Washington.
By choosing him for a leadership post, not to mention
a prominent role in lobbying "reform," congressional
Republicans have proven once again that they can't be
trusted to keep their hands out of the cookie jar.

Letters to the Editor
Independent candidates deserved own story
Monday's allegation that the Alligator
should have highlighted nonindependent
candidates in a story about independent can-
didates is ridiculous. Any decent student can
tell you that when a reporter writes a focused
story on a focused group of people, there is
no need, or right, to have opposing candi-
dates also highlighted. The Alligator provid-
ed ample coverage of the major parties, their
slates and positions last week. Furthermore,
all of the candidates for Student Senate
slated with Swamp or Unite parties clearly
support the tickets and positions put forth by
their parties, as they are just another cog in
their political machine's wheel. Heaven for-
bid publishing one story that focused on in-
dependent candidates, who don't have sexy
party Web sites, round glossy stickers or re-
cycled party names from just two years ago!
I applaud the Alligator's efforts to introduce
all of the candidates to the student body, not
just candidates who are slated less for their
positions and more for the hope that they can
bring votes to a presidential ticket.

Midweek game

FSU's postseason

As usual, Mike Martin's Florida State
baseball team is preparing to face
the Gators as if anything more than a
midweek, nonconference game is at stake.
That's because the 10-1 Seminoles need to
hide the fact that they play a weak nonconfer-
ence schedule, and they are a one-man show.
It is truly a marvelous act of deception
to compel voters to put FSU in the top 10 of
national polls every year. Martin does this
by adjusting his starting rotation during the
weekend prior to midweek games against
.the Gators.
Tyler Chambliss, who has started each of
the three Saturday games for the Seminoles
this year, will face UF junior-transfer Kris
Gawriluk tonight. Chambliss (3-0) was the
last FSU pitcher to face the Gators. He threw
the final 3.2 innings of the Gators' 8-5 vic-
tory against his team in the 2005 Gainesville
Super Regional that earned UF a berth in the
College World Series.
Chambliss, who led the ACC in saves
last season, is on the watch list for the Roger
Clemens and Brooks Wallace awards, given
respectively to the top collegiate pitcher and
player each year. Why
s one of the top losers
from last season and
the second-best starter
in the FSU rotation
this year going to face
Tim Casey aguy making his first
Cas ey at the Bat Division I start?
Casey at theBat Because FSU the
tcasey@alligator.org team, the fans and the
boosters let the foot-
ball rivalry carry over to the baseball field.
They can't accept defeat to UF, not even in
a sport where the best teams in the country
will lose to the Gators 30 percent of the time.
By making the adjustment to his starting rota-
tion, Martin risks losing the preceding and
following weekend series.
UF coach Pat McMahon doesn't subscribe
to that logic. Instead, he will give Gawriluk a
chance to earn a position as a Sunday or mid-
week starter on a regular basis. Gawriluk has
pitched five innings in three appearances this
season. He has allowed one run, a solo home
run, and a total of four hits. Including seven
starts last season, Gawriluk started 20 games
at Daytona Beach Community College.
He should follow Stephen Locke's ex-
ample on how to defeat the Seminoles. As a
freshman last season, Locke quieted a hostile
crowd in Tallahassee, allowing one run dur-
ing 5.2 innings to pick up the victory against
FSU's Saturday starter.
Tonight, McKethan Stadium will be
packed, probably forcing fans to climb the
trees behind the "Jack Rye" outfield fence to
watch the game. Rye, FSU's right fielder, ran
into the fence twice so hard during the
first Super Regional game that the chain-link
still probably sports his profile.
He leads the Seminoles with a .444 aver-
age this season, but All-American Shane
Robinson is the cog that drives FSU's offense.
Robinson has been successful in eight stolen-
base attempts in 12 games this season, after
stealing 49 last year.
It's a shame that Matt LaPorta, Robinson's
teammate on the USA Baseball National Team,
will not be part of action this time. He will fest
his strained oblique muscle in hopes that he
can play in UF's weekend series against Texas
A&M.
If Robinson had the same injury, I'd bet
Martin would still toss in all his chips against
the Gators. And that's why FSU has a lot
more to lose.

UF.
"He deserves the opportunity to
start," McMahon said. "He is.a three-
pitch guy with great field presence. He
does a great job with the running game
and with the short game, and against
Florida State, that is a huge part of
what we need to do to be successful."
Although facing four staff aces in
five days is a daunting task, the Gators


know that it's something they will
have to get used to after finishing sec-
ond in the nation last season.
"That's the target we have on our
back," UF outfielder Gavin Dickey
said. "We played ourselves in this
position, and to be the
best, we've got to beat
Vjito rs the best.
B a ebal1 "Every team that we

The Seminoles will have even more


incentive to defeat the Gators. Not only
is UF their biggest rival, but the Gators
ended FSU's season last year one step
short of the College World Series.
Dickey, a Tallahassee native, could
be the man to step up'in LaPorta's
absence.
Dickey hit .571 against the
Seminoles in last year's Gainesville
Super Regional.
"It's an important game to get back
on the winning streak again and gain
some respect and feel good about our-
s,elves again," Davis said. "It's a big
game either way, and it-is even bigger
because it is Florida State."


ly several times in the second half, only to have the Crimson.
Tide match their every push.
And with a chance to finally get over the hump, UF gave
up three offensive rebounds in the final 90 seconds of the
game, squandering any chance of a comeback.
Donovan pointed to an increased level of competition
as one of the reasons why the Gators have been struggling
during the past month. He said that his team's unselfish at-
titude and drive were only enough to will it past weaker
competition.
"If you look at our last four to six games, everybody
knew it was going to be the toughest part and stretch of
our schedule," Donovan said. 'Our basketball team, when
we had all that early success, I don't know if we've played
against teams as talented as we're playing against now."
Despite the downward turn, Donovan doesn't feel like
his team lacks confidence, a sentiment echoed by his play-
ers.
"Confidence is never a problem," senior Adrian Moss
said. "We're a very good basketball team. We know what
we need to correct to make things happen."
Still, Donovan said the Gators are trying to compensate
for their recent woes by simply raising their level of effort
on the floor.
But the coach knows that isn't going make shots fall,
improve rebounding or make stops on the defensive end
of the floor.
S"They've got to make the choice to say, 'You know what?
These things need to get corrected,'" Donovan said. "And
I think there's been a little bit of our- team [thinking], 'I'll
just play harder, and that will make it better,' and that's not
going to make it better. Not with the quality of teams we've
played against."

After facing three No. 1 starters

the Gators will face yet another ace

And UF will likely be without
All-American first baseman Matt
LaPorta for the fourth consecutive
game.
LaPorta is still listed as day-to-

Team strives


to end slump

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

As UF raced to a 17-0 start, and even when
the Gators began to lose, praise rained down
upon the team for its players' unselfishness
and passion.
Now, that might not be enough.
With UF having lost six of its last 11 games,
the clock is slowly ticking toward March.
The Gators' home-court advantage
with a first-round NCAA
Tournament appearance in'
Jacksonville, seemingly a
shoo-in a month ago, is now
in serious jeopardy.
With the regular season
drawing to a close, UF could
Donovan play as little as foitr more
games this season, includ-
ing the Southeastern Conference and NCAA
tournaments.
If the Gators wish to extend their season,
they must find some answers to correct their
three-game losing skid quickly.
"Our basketball team this year has played
with energy; they've played with passion and
enthusiasm," UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"And this time of year, those things will keep
you around and keep you in the game, but
they're not good enough to win the game."
UF's six losses this year have come by a to-
tal of 27 points, none greater than the 6-point
defeat at South Carolina.
Sunday's loss at Alabama was a prime ex-
ample of what has plagued the Gators during
their losing stretch.

UF, Miami revisit rivalry; games scheduled for 2008, 2013


* SCHOOLS DISCUSSED A
NEUTRAL SITE FOR 2014.

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

The Gators have renewed one
their fiercest football rivalries, at
least temporarily.
UF and Miami finalized an
agreement to play a two-game
home-and-home series, UF
athletics director Jeremy Foley
announced Monday. The Gators

will host the Hurricanes on Sept.
6, 2008, and UF will travel to the
Orange Bowl to conclude the se-
ries on Sept. 7, 2013.
After the NCAA added a 12th
game to the college football sea-
son, Foley said that both schools
wanted to renew the rivalry dur-
ing seasons that ran 14 weeks
rather thani'the typical 13 weeks
in order to take advantage-of an
additional off-weekend.
"I just think to put Miami in a
13-week season our schedule
is tough enough as it is," Foley
said. "With 14 weeks, it gives us

another open date to play with
there. That's why we did it."
Foley also said that both
schools have discussed play-
ing at a neutral site in 2014, but
TV broadcast-
ing rights have
proven a point of
contingency.
l "It's obvi-
ously a marquee
ballgame," Foley said. "Both
schools' television partners are
going to want that.
"I would say right now that
2014 is to be determined. No


commitment. Just find out what
happens when the next television
contract is released."
Since 1938, the Gators had
faced the Hurricanes every year
through 1987, except 1943, for
a total of 53 games, the most
against any nonconference op-
ponent.
Miami holds a 28-25 advantage
in the series and has defeated UF
in the schools' past six meetings
- the last of which came in a
27-10 Hurricanes win at the 2004
Peach Bowl.

director Paul Dee would like to
schedule more consistent meet-
ings between the schools, Foley
said, but scheduling conflicts
make that infeasible.
"I think the series is good for
the state," Foley said. "But it's
just not a series that's going to
work out on a regular basis.
"There's just no perfect place
to play. It's as difficult for them
as it is for us. The open dates we
have are before Georgia and be-
fore FSU; it's tough to put Miami
in there. When you don't have
the flexibility, it's tough to do."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 3 CITY COMMISSION CaMpus Master Plan targets student cars, housing By JESSICA RIFFEL Alligator Writer jriffel@alligator.org UF freshman will not have cars on campus if Gainesville city commissioners get their way. The city made 13 pages of suggestions that they want UF to include in their Campus Master Plan for 2005-2015, and they unanimously voted Monday to send the comments to UF officials. The master plan outlines the goals UF will pursue in the next 10 years, such as the future of transportation and housing. It also outlines the anticipated growth of UF and its surrounding areas. A team led by Gainesville Public Works Director Teresa Scott reviewed the master plan, which they received in December. Some of their suggestions include increasing on-campus housing, prohibiting freshmen from having vehicles on campus and initiating a student fee based on credit hours to be paid to the local fire department for on-campus services. The team also commended UF for its plan to support the city's efforts to reduce problems created by students in single-family neighborhoods near campus. Commissioner Warren Nielsen agreed with the team's comment. "A really great university is not going to house its students in single-family neighborhoods," Nielsen said. This issue reflects the increasing complaints the city has been receiving from residents regarding student neighbors. "A really great university is not going to house its students in singlefamily neighborhoods." Warren Nielsen Gainesville City Commissioner Florida legislation requires the city to review and comment on the UF Campus Master Plan, since many of the items affect the city. Florida law states this review is necessary to increase communication and to coordinate campus and city goals. Linda Dixon, UF's planning manager, said the university worked with city staff when writing the plan. "We hope that we've covered most of their issues," Dixon said. However, the city is still submitting 13 pages of comments to the university. After UTF receives the city's comments, they are required to hold an information session and at least two public hearings. City Manager Russ Blackburn said the city will then begin negotiating with UF and will decide how to offset the negative impacts the plan would have on the city. The Board of Trustees, UF's highest goveming body, will then decide on the plan. Three eaglets hatch at the SFCC Teaching Zoo .1. ..... George and Ariel gently feed one of their three new chicks Monday afternoon in their nest at the SFCC Teaching Zoo. The eaglets will be released into the wild in South Carolina in 12 to 13 weeks. E THE EAGLETS WILL BE PREPARED FOR LIFE IN THE WILD. By HANNAH REICHEL Alligator Contributing Writer After five years with a quiet nest, George and Ariel are once again the proud parents of three fluffy eaglets, hatched Feb. 18, 19 and last Wednesday at the SFCC Teaching Zoo. It is an exciting event for the zoo, .said Jared Morgan, a student working with the animal technology program. "It's great for the eagles, and they are showing natural behaviors," he said, watching the new parents gently feed a freshly shredded rat to the awkward infants. It's also great for the community because people get to see the birds, he said. George and Ariel came to SFCC from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, where they had been treated for injuries, according to a press release. The parents are responsible for the care of the infants for the next five weeks. Then the eaglets will be moved to the South Carolina Center for Bird's of Prey to prepare for life in the wild, living out of sight of humans in nesting boxes in the trees, according to the release. When they are 12 to 13 weeks old, they will be released. Admission to the SFCC Teaching Zoo is free, and guided tours are available weekdays by an appointment three days in advance, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guests are also welcome weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 4 RELAY DONATE A FOR LIFE LUMINARIA LIGHT UP RELAY!

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 SG elections kick off today N STUDENTS CAN VOTE FROM COMPUTERS AT ANY OF THE 16 POLLING LOCATIONS. By LYNDSEY LEWIS Alligator Writer laewis@aIligator.org In just two more days, the swarms of perky political operatives will likely have departed Turlington Plaza for good. For now, however, expect a continuing inundation of colorful party stickers as this Spring's Student Government race enters its final lap. Today marks students' first chance to vote in the election, which will determine next year's executive officials and about half the members of Student Senate. The other half of Student Senate is voted into office during the Fall. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to cast ballots in the race, and voting will continue through Wednesday. Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and Wednesday. Students can vote from computers at any of the 16 approved polling locations. "It's not like it was before, when journalism students had to vote at the journalism building," said SG Office Manager Sandy Vernon. This SG election is the second ever to utilize an intranet-based voting system. The system was first put into place during Fall's Senate race, but voters experienced numerous technical issues when attempting to cast their ballots. However, Supervisor of Elections Erika Kane said she is confident that none of those problems will reoccur in this race. "We've had a test run, and everything ran smoothly," she said. "We typed in student IDs and checked to see if the Student Government correct ballots showed up., During the Fall election, computer malfunctions caused several students to receive incorrect ballots. For this election, students will vote according to their year or major. In addition to executive candidates, underclassmen can vote for either freshman or sophomore representatives. Upperclassmen, meanwhile, vote for senators from specific colleges. Election results will be announced at the Orange & Brew in the Reitz Union on Wednesday night. Kane, who is overseeing her first election, said this Spring's election process is designed for voter convenience. "If [students are] in the middle of.voting and they have to run to class, their ballot is saved," she said.

Deane is president of Warriors for Christ, one of about four groups that serve nearly 200 free meals every Sunday in Gainesville's Downtown Plaza. However, the groups may soon have to relocate because area businesses have been complaining about the large crowds of homeless people who line up for free meals. Deane, who spent three and a half months without a home, said the meals are crucial because they provide a rare opportunity for the homeless to have a warm meal. "It's not easy being homeless," he said. "We want to provide an opportunity for them to forget about what they're going through." There are so many homeless in need of these meals that sometimes the groups serving them must turn a hundred or more people away, Deane said. The group only has permission to serve the meals until the end of February, according to a letter sent by the city. "The businesses that are downtown have had this concern that the meals on the plaza detract from the downtown, and it creates a problem," said Jim Hencin, block grant manager for Bruce Dunn enjoys a hearty meal from Warriors for Christ, a church group feeding homeless people in downtown Gainesville every Sunday. The program may be relocated due to business owners' complaints. the city of Gainesville. The city is trying to find a "dignified setting" for people to serve and eat the food, Hencin said, such as a location with rest rooms and tables. In the Downtown Plaza, people can only sit and eat on the ground or on benches. "There are different facets to the issue, and unfortunately we have yet to come up with an ideal solution," he said. One downtown business that has voiced its concern to the city is Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille, next to the Plaza. During the Sunday meals, General Manager Michael Wainer said several homeless people have come by Harry's, stealing food from the plates of patrons seated outside and even using the restaurant's rest rooms to bathe. Wainer said this has kept patrons from dining outside. "It's an unfortunate situation," he said. "We have an additional 50-plus seats outside that are not being used." Despite these problems, Wainer said that the city is doing the best it can and that the free meals are important. Deane said any incidents that have occurred were simply the result of the desperate situation in which some homeless people find themselves. This desperation, Deane said, is what fuels many of the fights and disputes that sometimes occur during the Sunday meals. Deane said he and the groups providing the meals are concerned that moving the meal site might have a negative impact, such as an increase in violent incidents. According to the letter from the city, Warriors for Christ "may continue to feed the homeless at the Downtown Plaza on Sunday evenings for the months of January and February 2006." However, the end of February is not a deadline, and the topic is open for discussion, said David Flaherty, director of the Gainesville Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. The city is trying to work with the groups to find a better meal site, he said. "Our intent is to go back to the four or five meal providers and see if they think those sites are acceptable," he said. "We're not trying to make anyone do anything." Despite Deane's concern about a possible increase in violence at a new site, Flaherty said he is not aware of any difference in violent incidents on the Downtown Plaza. One homeless man said no matter where the food comes from, it is important for those who are dependent on the meals. Antonio Fernandez, 41, has been homeless for the past month and said the simple fact that people are trying to help is what is really important. "There's people trying to help each other out like this; I mean, that means a lot," Fernandez said. "At least somebody cares about people out here on the streets like this."

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 U ALLIGATOR, 5 MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS Islam Fair gives positive portrayal of Muslim culture By JACQUELINE DAVISON Alligator Writer jdavison@alligator.org UF students were invited to the Reitz Union Colonnade to increase their awareness of the Muslim culture -one they say is not depicted in the media. Islam on Campus held its annual Islam Fair on Monday as a part of Israel Awareness Month. "I think that people are different from each other, but I think that one thing that links us all together is that we all have culture," said Sakil Hossain, organizer of the Islam Fair. With the recent publication of the controversial political cartoons depicting the Islamic -prophet, Muhammad, Hossain said that he wants to counteract negative portrayals with positive experiences for people on campus. "The only way is to give them examples of positivity," Hossain said. "That's the main objective of Islam on Campus -to show people the true nature of our religion and how peaceful it is." The violence on TV portrays mainly isolated incidents, he said, and foi the most part Islamic culture is very peaceful, as demonstrated in a prayer on the Reitz Union Lawn. Muslim students gathered to participate in one of five daily prayers that are part of the Muslim faith. "We just wanted to show the prayer to show that when you pray in Islam, it doesn't matter who you are," Hossain said. "It's not like the rich people sit in the front and the poor people sit in the back." He said that the idea was to show the Muslim equality and truth within religious prayer. Countries from the Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America were represented at the fair. At various tables, students from respective countries offered information on Islamic art and history, as well as free food. Other students performed traditional Islamic music or gave temporary henna tattoos. "[Islam] has a presence in every country in the world," Hossain said, "so we just tried to show how diverse it is."

6, ALLIGATOR S TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 Editorial Election Day Lots of reasons to get out and vote fter yesterday's editorial didn't endorse either of the two presidential tickets, we realize that a lot of people are a little put off. After all, the presidential and vice presidential races are usually the highlights of the SG election season. This time, however, the presidential candidates are barely differentiable. On the one hand, there's the SG insider. On the other hand, there's the other SG insider. And the vice presidential race is probably about even as well. To put it bluntly, we're starting to get concerned about the potential for low voter turnout. But despite the fact that we're less than enthused about the presidential tickets, there are still very real reasons to head out to the polls today and tomorrow. Susan Henriques, independent candidate for treasurer, is still in the race. And as we mentioned yesterday, she's a great pick. Her overwhelming experience earned her our endorsement. The Unite Party's senatorial candidates are also good selections. ThEir platform is a little more achievable than their Swamp Party counterparts'. They're also, for the most part, not of the current political establishment, meaning they have the potential to develop a lot of new and fresh ideas. And one thing that SG desperately needs is a little rearranging. But perhaps the most important item on the ballot is the online voting initiative. That's right. Now, students will get to decide for themselves whether online voting is an appropriate platform for SG elections. And it's about time. To us, the saga of online voting highlights everything that is wrong with SG. The story goes back for years, but the issue's latest chapter started in last year's Spring election when the SG Supreme Court blocked a proposed online voting initiative. At the time, the Court wrote that it was unclear whether the measure was an initiative or merely a nonbinding referendum, despite the fact that the word "initiative" appeared four times on the document, while the word "referendum" was not to be found. But the genie was pretty much out of the bottle by then, so, in an effort to appease proponents of online voting, the Student Senate formed a temporary committee to investigate.Of course, that committee met over the summer when nobody was here. And despite the fact that online voting would entail the same security measures that students use topay tuition, the committee decided that online voting wasn't secure enough. So we were stuck having to vote on campus yet again in the Fall elections. Computerized voting was a definite step forward, but it pales in comparison to being able to vote from home in your underwear. And that's why we urge you all to go out and support online voting either today or tomorrow. Don't waste this opportunity to create change, because if past events are any indication, there's no telling when you'll get a chance like this again. So even though we think the presidential tickets are roughly equivalent, there are lots of other (Unite) candidates and one very important initiative that need your support.

Despite the best efforts of Dan Savage, Santorum isn't a household name -not yet, anyway. But as the Senate's No. 3 Republican, he's one of the most powerful men in Washington. Santorum caused a minor scandal in 2003, when he compared homosexual relationships to pedophilia and "man-on-dog" bestiality. Now he's in hot water again, this time over the Virginia home he shares with his wife and a positively canine litter of six children. The house, all 5,722 square feet of it, is actually quite modest by Republican standards. Compared to the president's ranch or Dick Cheney's opulent quarters onboard the Death Star, it's practically a-shack. Still, a $643,361 house seems a bit much for Santorum, who makes $162,100 a year and claims to live "from paycheck to paycheck." Good thing he has powerful friends. In 2002, Santorum borrowed half a million dollars from The Philadelphia Trust Company, a private bank with an exclusive clientele. How exclusive? To qualify for a loan, every client must have at least $250,000 in an investment portfolio managed by Philadelphia Trust -except for Santorum, whose liquid assets total a mere $140,000. Santorum, who sits on the Banking and Finance committees, has also received $24,000 in campaign contributions from executives at Philadelphia Trust. Sure, he didn't meet the bank's loan requirements -but what's 500 grand between friends? For starters, it'sa violation of Senate ethics rules. Senators may not borrow money on terms unavailable to the general public. At the very least, Santorum should lose his position in the Senate leadership. But that's not how the Republican Party works. Instead, Santorum is the GOP's point man on ethics reform in the Senate. They might as well have picked Jack Abramoff for the job. In fact, Santorum and Abramoff go way back. Both were key players in Tom DeLay's K Street Project, which gave lobbyists unprecedented influence on policy in exchange for contributions to Jake Ramsey Republican legislators. And both Thus Spake Jake enjoy eating high off the hog on letters@aigator.org someone else's dime. Since 2001, Santorum's fundraising committees have functioned as the senator's private ATM. Trips to Arby's, Burger King and even Starbucks (supposedly the turf of latte-sipping liberal elitists) are routinely listed as valid political expenditures. Santorum has used campaign funds for other questionable items, including $463,378 in back payments on credit cards. Just last weekend, the Better Business Bureau revealed that Operation Good Neighbor, Santorum's charity, spent most of its money on cushy jobs for campaign donors and members of Santorum's staff. Only about a third of the cash went to people in need. A shady mortgage and free Double Whoppers are bad enough. But when a senator lines his cronies' pockets with contributions intended for AIDS patients and homeless people -well, that's something else entirely. Maybe former Sen. Bob Kerrey was on to something when he said, "Santorum is Latin for 'asshole."' Unfortunately, Rick Santorum is all too typical of the corruption and venality on display in Washington. By choosing him for a leadership post, not to mention a prominent role in lobbying "reform," congressional Republicans have proven once again that they can't be trusted to keep their hands out of the cookie jar.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Independent candidates deserved own story Monday's allegation that the Alligator should have highlighted nonindependent candidates in a story about independent candidates is ridiculous. Any decent student can tell you that when a reporter writes a focused story on a focused group of people, there is no need, or right, to have opposing candidates also highlighted. The Alligator provided ample coverage-of the major parties, their slates and positions last week. Furthermore, all of the candidates for Student Senate slated with Swamp or Unite parties clearly support the tickets and positions put forth by their parties, as they are just another cog in their political machine's wheel. Heaven forbid publishing one story that focused on independent candidates, who don't have sexy party Web sites, round glossy stickers or recycled party names from just two years ago! I applaud the Alligator's efforts to introduce all of the candidates to the student body, not just candidates who are slated less for their positions and more for the hope that they can bring votes to a presidential ticket.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 Among the shadows of a quickly receding sun, Marc Matthews leaps into a butterfly kick in his secluded spot next to Lake Alice, where the bats will soon stream across the sky and disappear into the approaching night. He swoops into a horizontal spin across the long shadows of pine trees and glides to the ground to continue his routine. The butterfly kick is part of the Wu Shu form, a newer form of Wah Lum Kung Fu that is more showy than practical. "It's more acrobatic -with jumps and splits," Matthews said. Matthews, a linguistics sophomore at UF, began practicing Kung Fu when he was in third grade, partly to be different from his father, who practiced Tae Kwon Do since Matthews was a child. He would watch his father practice martial arts when he was 2 years old and would occasionally try it himself. For Matthews, Kung Fu is relaxing, even though it is active. It relieves tension, aggression and stress, he said. "Sometimes you get really into it, and you don't think about anything," he said. "It's not like you're telling yourself to kick, punch, kick, kick. You're just doing it." -TIM HUSSIN Alligator Staff + HAPPENSTANCE Both parties raised more than $24,000 total for the Spring election campaign MON EY, from page 1 Unite spokeswoman Amanda Kane said the candidates were not required to contribute money. "After there is enough money for basic materials, it is more about how much work the party puts in," she said. Once the money flows into the war chests, party officials spend it mostly on advertising -pricey I Great Mediterranean Cuisine I j/3.71/V + IZU W.

Swamp has spent $5,759 of its contributions on shirts and about $555 on food. It also spent $664 on a weekend campaign event at The Swamp restaurant. In total, Swamp has spent $12,728 -about $700 less than it has taken in. Weiss said it is unlikely that the party will have any extra money at the end of the election because the party will try to use the rest of its money today and Wednesday. According to Unite campaign finance reports, it has spent about $6,126 -about $4,700 less than the party has received. A Feb. 13 receipt shows the party owes about $4,000 on a $7,574 T-shirt bill. To promote its candidates, the party spent $850 to produce a television advertisement.

He asked for almost $7 million, split between three branches of the university that would participate: the Institute for Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Health Science Center and the colleges of Engineering and Liberal Arts and Sciences. The projected cost of the new building is about $8 million. Win Phillips, UF's vice president for research, said Monday that UF is the best location for the center because Machen of its intellectual resources. It has experts in agriculture, zoology and health science to handle diseases that affect plants, animals and humans, he said. "We have a tremendous amount of expertise -the most in the state of Florida," he said. Machen's column emphasized the protection an emerging pathogens institute would afford the state. But the university has ambitious reasons for building it as well. The university's strategic plan, a road map to Top 10 territory formulated by top UF officials, states that the university must lead in fields such as biotechnology in order to enhance its recognition and measurable success.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2006 N ALLIGATOR, 15 Midweek game FSU's postseason s usual, Mike Martin's Florida State baseball team is preparing to face the Gators as if anything more than a midweek, nonconference game is at stake. That's because the 10-1 Seminoles need to hide the fact that they play a weak nonconference schedule, and they are a one-man show. It is truly a marvelous act of deception to compel voters to put FSU in the top 10 of national polls every year. Martin does Uhis by adjusting his starting rotation during the weekend prior to midweek games against the Gators. Tyler Chambliss, who has started each of the three Saturday games for the Seminoles Uris year, will face UF junior-transfer Kris Gawriluk tonight. Chambliss (3-0) was the last FSU pitcher to face the Gators. He threw the final 3.2 innings of the Gators' 8-5 victory against his team in the 2005 Gainesville Super Regional that earned UF a berth in the College World Series. Chambliss, who led the ACC in saves last season, is on the watch list for the Roger Clemens and Brooks Wallace awards, given respectively to the top collegiate pitcher and player each year. Why is one of the top closers from last season and the second-best starter in the FSU rotation this year going to face Tim Casey a guy making his first Division I start? Casey at the Bat Because FSU -the tcasey@alligator.org team, the fans and the boosters -let the football rivalry carry over to the baseball field. They can't accept defeat to UP, not even in a sport where the best teams in the country will lose to the Gators 30 percent of the time. By making the adjustment to his starting rotation, Martin risks losing the preceding and following weekend series. UF coach Pat McMahon doesn't subscribe to that logic. Instead, he will give Gawriluk a chance to earn a position as a Sunday or midweek starter on a regular basis. Gawriluk has pitched five innings in three appearances this season. He has allowed one run, a solo home run, and a total of four hits. Including seven starts last season, Gawriluk started 20 games at Daytona Beach Community College. He should follow Stephen Locke's example on how to defeat the Semrdnoles. As a freshman last season, Locke quieted a hostile crowd in Tallahassee, allowing one run during 5.2 innings to pick up the victory against FSU's Saturday starter. Tonight, McKethan Stadium will be packed, probably forcing fans to climb the trees behind the "Jack Rye" outfield fence to watch the game. Rye, FSU's right fielder, ran into the fence -twice -so hard during the first Super Regional game that the chain-link still probably sports his profile. He leads the Semioles with a .444 average this season, but All-American Shane Robinson is the cog that drives FSU's offense. Robinson has been successful in eight stolenbase attempts in 12 games this season, after stealing 49 last year. It's a shame that Matt LaPorta, Robinson's teamate on the USA Baseball National Team will not be part of action this time. He willfest his strained oblique muscle in hopes that he can play in UP's weekend series against Texas A&M. If Robinson had the same injury, I'd bet Martin would still toss in all his chips against the Gators. And that's why FSU has a lot more to lose. Bro %% rq'( to I v Vq% fourth C h r ly several times in the second half, only to have the Crimson. Tide match their every push. And with a chance to finally get over the hump, UF gave up three offensive rebounds in the final 90 seconds of the game, squandering any chance of a comeback. Donovan pointed to an increased level of competition as one of the reasons why the Gators have been struggling during the past month. He said that his team's unselfish attitude and drive were only enough to will it past weaker competition. "If you look at our last four to six games, everybody knew it was going to be the toughest part and stretch of our schedule," Donovan said. 'Our basketball team, when we had all that early success, I don't know if we've played against teams as talented as we're playing against now." Despite the downward turn, Donovan doesn't feel like his team lacks confidence, a sentiment echoed by his players. "Confidence is never a problem," senior Adrian Moss said. "We're a very good basketball team. We know what we need to correct to make things happen." Still, Donovan said the Gators are trying to compensate for their recent woes by simply raising their level of effort on the floor. But the coach knows that isn't going make shots fall, improve rebounding or make stops on the defensive end of the floor. -"They've got to make the choice to say, 'You know what? These things need to get corrected,"' Donovan said. "And I think there's been a little bit of ourteam [thinking], 'I'll just play harder, and that will make it better,' and that's not going to make it better. Not with the quality of teams we've played against."

"He is a threepitch guy with great field presence. He does a great job with the running game and with the short game, and against Florida State, that is a huge part of what we need to do to be successful." Although facing four staff aces in five days is a daunting task, the Gators have to get used to after finishing second in the nation last season. "That's the target we have on our back," UF outfielder Gavin Dickey said. "We played ourselves in this position, and to be the best, we've got to beat the best. gas a1 "Every team that we face is going to throw their [best] guy against us every time out, and they are going to play harder for us than they might for somebody else." The Seminoles will have even more is UF their biggest rival, but the Gators ended FSU's season last year one step short of the College World Series. Dickey, a Tallahassee native, could be the man to step up'in LaPorta's absence. Dickey hit .571 against the Seminoles in last year's Gainesville Super Regional. "It's an important game to get back on the winning streak again and gain some respect and feel good about ourselves again," Davis said. "It's a big game either way, and it is even bigger because it is Florida State." 47 Kim Klement/ Alligator Senior forward Adrian Moss drives through Vanderbilt's Opfense during UF's Jan. 28. win against the Commodores.

By BRYAN APP Alligator Staff Writer bapp@alligator.org The Gators have renewed one their fiercest football rivalries, at least temporarily. UF and Miami finalized an agreement to play a two-game home-and-home series, UF athletics director Jeremy Foley announced Monday. The Gators Men's basketball Pittsburgh (8) 62 West Virginia (16) 67 Men's basketball OQ,;ahoma State 66 Oklahoma (19) 67 will host the Hurricanes on Sept. 6, 2008, and UF will travel to the Orange Bowl to conclude the series on Sept. 7, 2013. After the NCAA added a 12th game to the college football season, Foley said that both schools wanted to renew the rivalry during seasons that ran 14 weeks rather than'the typical 13 weeks in order to take advantage of an additional off-weekend. "I just think to put Miami in a 13-week season -our schedule is tough enough as it is," Foley said. "With 14 weeks, it gives us U Baseball : Florida State vs. UF McKethan Stadium, 6:30 p.m. U General admission is sold out. Students admitted free with a Gator I Card. another open date to play with there. That's why we did it." Foley also said that both schools have discussed playing at a neutral site in 2014, but TV broadcasting rights have proven a point of contingency. all "It's obviously a marquee ballgame," Foley said. "Both schools' television partners are going to want that. "I would say right now that 2014 is to be determined. No commitment. Just find out what happens when the next television contract is released." Since 1938, the Gators had faced the Hurricanes every year through 1987, except 1943, for a total of 53 games, the most against any nonconference opponent. Miami holds a 28-25 advantage in the series and has defeated UF in the schools' past six meetings -the last of which came in a 27-10 Hurricanes win at the 2004 Peach Bowl. Foley and Miami athletics director Paul Dee would like to schedule more consistent meetings between the schools, Foley said, but scheduling conflicts make that infeasible. "I think the series is good for the state," Foley said. "But it's just not a series that's going to work out on a regular basis. "There's just no perfect place to play. It's as difficult for them as it is for us. The open dates we have are before Georgia and before FSU; it's tough to put Miami in there. When you don't have the flexibility, it's tough to do."
