When Stephanie Evans started teaching
at UF, the assistant professor saw a chance to
help reverse a stagnation in the recruitment
of black faculty and make the university
more diverse.
But Evans, who came to UF in 2003, soon
saw troubling signs that the university was
not prioritizing diversity. The university's
barely funded African American Studies
Program suffered from a lack of support, and
an Asian-American studies certificate was
non-existent.
In addition, then, as is now, some depart-


ments only had one full-time black profes- of black faculty that could be fought by tak-
sor. ing steps to show that the Gator Nation has a

Jeb given


alumnus


status

By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

After UF's Faculty Senate
denied former Gov. Jeb Bush an
honorary degree Thursday, UF's
Alumni Association's Board of
Directors unanimously named
him an honorary alumnus
Saturday.
Bush's alumus status was not
originally on the agenda with the
other two nominees for the honor,
but David Lowe, a former Alumni
Association president, said he
nominated him
because he
thought it was
the "right thing
to do."
He also said
the Senate's de-
ci'sion to deny
Bush an honor-
ary degree was a
factor in his nomination.
"Some things should transcend
politics," Lowe said. "Governor
Bush did a lot to raise the profile
of UF during his tenure."
The degrees have been given to
eight former Florida governors, as
well as Sen. John McCain.
According to a press release,
the association's resolution
named Bush's attempts to attract
research to Florida as a reason for
the acknowledgment.
The resolution also mentioned
Bush's support of the state's do-
nation matching programs and
efforts to attract the best faculty to
UF, the release stated.
"In my opinion, he is certainly
deserving of recognition with an
honorary degree, and I am disap-
pointed that the Faculty Senate
failed to ratify the endorsement of
the Honorary Degree Committee,"

UF lags in competition for university recycling programs


By KATIE PACKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

While UF is aiming for its second basket-
ball national championship in a row, its fall-
ing behind in other national rankings.
UF is competing for the first time against
more than 200 other schools in RecycleMania,
a 10-week nationwide competition among
college and university recycling programs
to encourage waste reduction.
The amount in pounds of paper, card-
board and beverage containers recycled per
person is compared weekly to other compet-


ing schools until the contest ends April 7.
As of Sunday, UF is ranked first out of
the four schools competing in Florida, but
nationwide, it comes in at No. 69.
Students need to be more .aware about
what can be recycled, and recycling needs
to become a habit, said Adrian Erlenbach, a
UF sophomore and intern for UF's Office of
Sustainability.
"It's just not convenient when you're
not used to it. Recycling is not that hard
- people just need to change their mind-
set," she said.
Ryan Graunke, a UF junior and intern


"It will take a few years for recy-
cling to become second nature."

UF Physical Plant Department coordinator

at the Office of Sustainability, will be pro-
moting his education program, Recycling
IQ, at a table this week on the Reitz Union.
Colonnade.
He hopes to encourage more people to
recycle and boost UF's ranking in the last
few weeks of RecycleMania.
Dale Morris, the recycling and solid


waste coordinator for UF's Physical Plant
Department, stressed the importance of
balancing the number of trash bins with re-
cycling bins on campus to encourage people
to recycle.
"It will take a few years for recycling to
become second nature," Morris said.
UF students and faculty recycle nearly
140 tons of paper per month and 14 tons of
drink containers per week. Morris said he
would like to see these numbers rise.
"Bragging rights is inspiration for behav-
ior change," Erlenbich said. "Gators expect
the best."

U.S. CONGRESS

War questions aimed at Rep.


By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

When Gainesville's con-
gressman in the U.S. House of
Representatives came to, town
Saturday, he asked some constit-
uents how they felt about paying
for college and pulling troops
from Iraq.
While the talk about tuition
was brief and civil, the 40-strong
crowd's words on war were a
mixed rabble of cheers and jeers.
Cliff Stears, a Republican
from Ocala, raised his voice over
crowd members arguing among
themselves to ask if they wanted
U.S. troops to be recalled from
Iraq.
The crowd's reaction was an
outburst of booing and applause.
Even though Steams came to
Gainesville to discuss a range of
issues, such as health care and
motivating college graduates
to take local jobs, most of the
people gathered in the Florida


Department of Agriculture's
Doyle Connor building on
Southwest 34th Street wanted to
talk about all things related to
the war.
Harold Salve, an Air Force
veteran representing Veterans
q for Peace, said
he came to the
meeting to talk
about the injus-
tices American
troops face
when receiving
health care.
Steams "Right now,
health care for
veterans is disingenuous," he
said.
Saive stood and told Stearns
that medical facilities are in-
adequate and soldiers need a
choice when it comes to selecting
hospitals.
"The facilities are run down
right now. They can't handle all
the troops coming back," Saive
said. "Soldiers are dying in line
waiting for treatment."


Stears said if U.S. troops
leave Iraq, they have to do so in
an honorable way.
One woman stood and re-
sponded by saying that honor
changes daily, but soldiers'
deaths and injuries are perma-
nent.
Stears also discussed issues
facing UF students.
"I think we have to be sure
students get high-paying jobs,
and I would like to -see them get
those jobs here in Gainesville,"
Stears said. "There are many
opportunities now with jobs that
deal with technology in Alachua
County."
One major issue students have
is not being able to pay back their
loans, he said.
"I've voted in Congress sev-
eral times to reduce the interest
rates that UF students have to
pay," he said.
Stears ended the meeting by
urging everyone to be more in-
volved in government.


Healthier sodas

By LYDIA FERNANDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are joining the health craze by
introducing alternatives to their products.
In April, Coca-Cola will release Diet Coke Plus, and in the
fall, PepsiCo will launch a drink called Tava. Both carbon-
ated drinks will have added vitamins and minerals.
The new products are not being promoted as sodas but as
sparkling beverages.
Public "The consumer is the one in charge, and it's
Health up to the beverage companies, like ours, to de-
velop the products they want," wrote PepsiCo
spokeswoman Michelle Naughton in an e-mail.
She said Tava will contain no calories or caffeine but will be
artificially sweetened.
Susan McDermott, a spokeswoman for Coca-Cola, said
SDiet Coke Plus will taste similar to Diet Coke. Unlike Tava,
the drink will include caffeine.
Gary Libretti, a personal trainer at the UF Department of
Recreational Sports and a UF junior majoring in food science
and human nutrition, said he doubts the healthfulness of the
new drinks.
"For me, it's still soda," Libretti said. "As long as it's car-
bonated water and artificial sweeteners, it's soda."

MEMORIAL

Costumes honor students


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

Donning black and yellow stripes and wings
or pirate hats and plastic swords, friends of
Christina Pitcher and Ashley Renee Mills par-
tied as bumblebees and pirates to remember
their friends.
UF students Pitcher and Mills died after a
car accident during Spring Break, and about
30 friends gathered at the pair's apartment
Saturday night dressed in costumes similar to
ones Mills and Pitcher wore last Halloween, a
bumblebee and pirate, respectively.
The two 22-year-old UF seniors died March
10 after a car accident on the Florida Turnpike.
Earlier that day, about 40 people attended a
memorial at St. Augustine Catholic Church.
During the service, the pair's roommates,
Ashley Glenn and Meghan Connor, told stories
about Pitcher and Mills. Glenn said that she,
Pitcher and Connor were originally like the
Three Musketeers.
But Mills, "the most successful random room-
mate assignment," quickly became their fourth.
She said she was walking down the beach the
day after the accident and started crying.
When it started to rain, she wondered if life


could get any worse. But when she saw two full
rainbows connecting the shore to the ocean, she
took it as a sign that Mills and Pitcher were still
with her.
"We not only have one but two beautiful an-
gels looking down from heaven," she said.
After the service, several family members and
friends shared stories about the two women.
"We not only have one but two
beautiful angels looking down from
heaven."
Meghan Connor
roommate of Pitcher and Mills

Glenn and Connor joked with Mills' mother,
Carolyn Williams, about how she was a few
minutes late to the service.
"(Mills would) probably be happy that you
were wearing the right makeup," Connor said.

Study: CPR's mouth-


to-mouth not helpful


By LINDSEY KARLIN
Alligator Contributing Writer

A new study shows- people
should eliminate mouth-to-mouth
ventilation when performing car-
diopulmonary resuscitation, more
commonly known as CPR.
The study, which was conducted
by a Japanese study group and pub-
lished in the British medical journal
The Lancet, shows only doing chest
compressions during CPR increases
the survival rate and, because of
constant blood flow to the brain,
doubles the brain function of people
who go into cardiac arrest.
"This is a very important mes-
sage, considering the very low per-
cent of cases that are successfully re-
suscitated," said Dr. Carl J. Pepine,
chief of cardiovascular medicine at


the UF College of Medicine.
According to an editorial accom-
panying the study, three out of four
people who witness a cardiac arrest
- when someone's heart stops
- are reluctant to perform CPR be-
cause of the likelihood of confusing
the process or the fear
Public of getting an infectious
Health disease from mouth-
to-mouth contact.
Pepine said the study will en-
courage bystanders to perform
CPR.
"I think it's great that they're
finding ways to improve CPR and
help people," said Nathan Telaraja,
a UF freshman and vice president
of Red Cross Gators. "A ground-
breaking study like this can be cru-
cial to getting more civilians trained
in CPR."

Black and white

UF needs more minority

professors and faculty
Y you're probably on campus right now, waiting for class to
start or perhaps you're even in class right now, read-
ing while you should be taking notes. Well, take a look
around. We're willing to bet that most of your professors are
white. Outside of African-American studies, foreign language
and diversity-focus classes, we're willing to bet most students
have never had a professor who was black, Hispanic or Asian-
American.
And that's a problem.
Black faculty make up less than 3 percent of total faculty
- but black students make up almost 7.5 percent of UF's stu-
dent population. Only 3.62 percent of UF's faculty are Hispanic,
while Hispanic students make up almost 11 percent of the stu-
dent body.
If UF administration wants to increase the university's diver-
sity, it needs to improve the ratios of minority faculty members
to white faculty members. Even UF President Bernie Machen
said UF's faculty needs to be as diverse as its student body.
But the Black Faculty and Staff Association's president,
Anthony Greene, said Machen hasn't done enough. And that's
the catch-22.
Of course UF wants to hire more minority faculty. But ac-
cording to UF officials, those candidates don't seem to be out
there, especially in certain fields. Sure, maybe no black candi-
dates applied for those positions, but that doesn't mean they
aren't out there. Almost 70 percent of FAMU's faculty are black
- so why can't UF seem to recruit black faculty?
Maybe Bernie and Co. aren't trying hard enough.
The UF administration needs to network more with pre-
dominantly black universities, like Bethune-Cookman College
and Florida A&M University. UF could create partnerships with
these schools, maybe something like an exchange program for
professors. Or, even better, it could work harder to recruit new
professors. UF, as a strong research university, offers opportuni-
ties for research that are not available at smaller colleges.
But the weight doesn't fall solely on UF's shoulders. The bur-
den is on Gainesville as well. Our fair city has had its share of
race-related problems, making it seem like a not-so-hospitable
place for minorities. There's the split between East and West
Gainesville (well call it "Main Street"). There's the slightly ru-
ral-town feel that might put some people off. Gainesville needs
to prove that it is a welcoming place for everyone.
The city is making progress, though. The Southeast
Gainesville Renaissance Initiative is a step in the right di-
rection. And Gainesville is host to local organizations like
the Gainesville chapter of the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People.
UF also has some internal problems. Black faculty some-
times feel discriminated against maybe not outright, but little
things, such as the feeling that other faculty have lower expecta-
tions for them or that they were denied opportunities because of
their race. Only when faculty feel comfortable and accepted into
the UF community will they encourage their colleagues from
other colleges and universities to join them.
We know there are qualified black, Hispanic and Asian-
American professors out there. We not only need to find them
we need to make them want to come to UF Until UF's faculty
is representative of the world we live in, the Gator Nation will
not match up to the real world.

Boob jobs not low self-esteem solution


Recently, a study was conducted about the psy-
chological effects of breast implants by Cynthia
igueroa-Hass, a clinical assistant professor at UF's
College of Nursing.
If you've been on the UF home page lately, you've
probably seen a link to an article about the study.
Here's how it went: Figueroa-Haas measured the self-
esteem and sexuality of 84 women, ages 21 to 57, with two
widely accepted scientific scales. Before participating in
the study, the women involved had already scheduled
their surgeries and had chosen to get breast implants for
purely cosmetic reasons.
Three months after the surgery, those women took the
same tests to determine their new levels of self-esteem and
sexuality. On average, the scores rose significantly.
Although she feels plastic surgery is not a cure-all for
those with low self-esteem, Figueroa-Haas says this dem-
onstrates the "genuine psychological improvements that
follow plastic surgery."
Such a claim should not be made lightly.
First of all, the second round of analyses was done
three months after the surgery. I wonder how the scores
might change after a year or two, once the initial satisfac-
tion wears off. Secondly and much more importantly
- if your self-esteem depends on how you look, then
breast implants are only treating the symptom, not the
cause, of low self-esteem.
Imagine a guy named Steve. Steve feels bad about
himself because he has little string-bean muscles. He
decides that he'll feel better if he looks like Arnold
Schwarzenegger, so he starts taking steroids. If you have
trouble imagining Steve, take a walk around the weight
room at the Southwest Recreation Center.
So, Steve takes the steroids, gets huge and starts to feel
great about himself. He's more confident and sexually sat-
isfied. Unfortunately, the steroid solution only temporar-
ily addresses a symptom of his self-esteem problem.


The root cause of whatever dis-
satisfaction Steve feels is ignored.
When all is said and done, his
self-esteem is still based on, or at
least deeply affected by, his appear-
ance. The real solution would be for
Patrick Barrett Steve to realize what matters in the
letters@alligator.org long run.
Hint: It's not breasts or big mus-
cles. Until he manages to do that,
all of his efforts will only put off the inevitable.
There will come a point for Steve, as for the women in
this study, when all of science's artificial efforts will not
be able to protect them from their own imperfections, and
they will have to tackle them head-on.
I'm not saying everyone who gets breast implants is
running away from something. But touting the "genuine
psychological improvements" that follow from getting
breast implants is dangerous. Breast implants cannot im-
prove any psychological problem because they do not ad-
dress any psychological issue. The rise in self-esteem, like
the improved appearance due to implants, is temporary
and superficial.
It would be great if you could just take a pill or have
some surgery and then feel better about yourself. But it
has never worked before, and it will never work. At best,
these measures address the physical or chemical symp-
toms of internal emotional problems. They can buy time,
but the root of the problem will demand attention sooner
or later.
The longer you wait to address the real problem, the
more deeply developed and insurmountable it will seem.
So, if you're looking for psychological improvement, it
might be better to get some things off your chest rather
than adding things to it.

Letters to the Editor
Denying Bush degree shows immaturity
As an alumnus, I feel what the Faculty
Senate did regarding the denial of former Gov.
Jeb Bush an honorary degree was an absolute
disgrace. It embarrassed the university, its
students and its alumni to a degree I had not
thought possible. Was anything gained by
denying the president's brother an honorary
degree? Boy, they sure showed him.
This is a new low in Florida academics
and yet another example of the tawdriness
and petty politics that continue to diminish
the already-faltering image the academic
community holds in the public's eye. I hope
UF President Bemie Machen will take it upon
himself to address this issue with the Senate in
a public forum and issue a personal and public


apology to Mr. Bush. The Alumni Association
is to be commended for its role in attempting
to mitigate this ugly situation. It is absolutely
disgraceful.

Faculty Senate was right to deny Bush

Greeks big on charity events, interaction
Gordon Van Owen's Friday column
regarding the need for a more "high-tech"
Greek community is a shallow opinion of the
Greek community. His issue with fraternities
and sororities doing more for the community
is shortsighted. Does he not read daily about
the multiple charity events, which are open
to anyone, held around Gainesville all four
Greek councils? When was the last time he
attended Delta Gamma's Anchor Splash or
Sigma Phi Epsilon's Surf Frenzy? Almost
all Greek new-member-education processes,
include a community service requirement.
In my brotherhood, we have a philanthropy
chair who shares different ways to get in-
volved every week.


The point of a fraternity is roit to allow its
members to sit at home and chat in an online
forum. We encourage actual physical interac-
tion. Crazy as it may seem, it is fun. Saying
that networking is the only reason to join a
Greek organization is shortsighted. People
join for more than just adding to their r6sum6.
The whole process gets you involved in the
school, teaches you how to interact in such a
large university and encourages you to do so
by more than just searching through dozens
of Facebook groups and joining one. So the
next time my fellow fraternity members and
I sit down to discuss our next rush, we will
remember Mr. Van Owen ... and poke him.

SQ officials lobby representatives in Washington


By ERIN EHRLICH
Alligator Writer

Courtesy of Josh Weiss
UF Student Senate President Josh Weiss shakes hands with Demo-
cratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama earlier this month in Wash-
ington, D.C. Weiss and other Student Government representatives
traveled to meet with lawmakers about student issues.


For some Student Government
officials, most of Spring Break was
spent lobbying congressmen and
attending conferences instead of
relaxing at the beach.
During the break, SG Lobby
Coordinator Jason Lutin and
Student Body Vice President
Arturo Armand traveled to
Washington, D.C., to meet with
congressmen about a House bill
that would reduce the federal
student loan interest rate from 6.8
percent to 3.4 percent.
Lutin said SG officials' trips to
Washington and Tallahassee show
lawmakers that students care
about certain issues
"You can do it over the phone,
but it's a lot harder to say, 'No,' to
someone in person," he said.
He said visiting and making
small talk with representatives
builds relationships.
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman
Schultz, one of 11 UF alumni in
Congress, has been a big part of


getting UF's voice heard, he said.
Lutin keeps in contact with
Schultz, and she tells him about
progression on issues he's lobby-
ing for.
Lutin said effective lobbyists,
especially student lobbyists, need
to make those kinds of trips so
they can get to know representa-
tives, senators and their staffs.
"It goes a long way with them,"
he said. "To go
Student .personally
Government means more
than money
and gifts, and I love putting UF on
the map."
Student Body President John
Boyles and Senate President Josh
Weiss also spent a few days in
Washington during the break.
SThe two attended a confer-
ence of the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel
lobby group.
Boyles and Weiss were urged
by committee representatives and
the UF Jewish Student Union to
represent UF at the conference,
and their trip was sponsored by


the committee.
Weiss, who met Sen. Barack
Obama and Sen. Mel Martinez
at a meet-and-greet with politi-
cians after the conference, said the
conference boasted speeches and
anecdotes from political leaders of
both parties.
He said the most surprising
thing was seeing both Democratic
Speaker of the House Nancy
Pelosi and Vice President Dick
Cheney supporting the U.S.-Israel
relationship.
Lutin, who was in the capital
to lobby for the student loan bill,
said although the bill passed' in
the House of Representatives in
January, it has been stagnant since
then and the Senate hasn't consid-
ered it yet.
"It's basically got to be force-
fed into the Senate, which is not
an easy task," Lutin said.
The bill would be effective im-
mediately if passed by the Senate,
he said.
SG paid $1,870.34 for Lutin and
Armand to make the trip, accord-
ing to SG financial records.

Cartoonist draws line between witty and racist comics


By BRITTANY DAVIS
Alligator Writer
bdavis@alligator.org

Keith Knight was as witty as
his cartoons Friday night when he
talked to roughly 30 people about
race, terrorism and the Bush ad-
ministration.
The syndicated cartoonist, who
draws for ESPN and Mad maga-
zines, said his own experiences
with family, friends and society
inspire his work.
"I like to take on issues not
necessarily in a direct way, but in
an indirect way," he said.
On an overhead projector,
Knight showed a cartoon inspired
by a conversation he had with a
friend while in college. The friend's
uncle didn't like black people
because a black person had once


robbed him.
"I guess nobody white had ever
done anything bad to him," Knight
said, drawing hearty laughter from
the audience.
Knight also ragged on newspa-
pers, laughing as he recalled the
San Francisco Examiner refusing
to run one of his cartoons because
it featured a black man selling co-
caine.
He said the editor of the paper
told him readers might think the
cartoon was racist.
"They're afraid of offending
anybody. It's completely outra-
geous," he said.
Knight encountered a simi-
lar problem when trying to sell
racial cartoons shortly after the
Muhammad cartoons caused riots
and controversy around the world
in September 2005.


"Does everyone understand
what this is? It's not about being
hateful against black people, it's be-
ing critical about society," he said.
But not all cartoons about race
are acceptable,
Knight said.
He addressed
the Andy
Marlette cartoon
that ran in the
Alligator in
September 2005,
Knight causing rallies
and protests
from black students and profes-
sors.
The cartoon featured Kanye
West holding a life-sized joker card
that read "race card" in front of
Condoleezza Rice. Rice crossed her
arms in disgust and said, "N****,
please."


Knight said the cartoon was un-
acceptable and was created only to
stir controversy and hurt feelings.
"When I looked at Marlette's
piece and see him using the 'N'
word as a cartoonist ... he could
have easily substituted another
word for that," Knight said.
Knight added that the cartoon's
punch line is invalid because Rice's
presence in the Bush administra-
tion doesn't mean that Bush cares
about black people.
"Condoleezza doesn't care
about black people either, so the
point is completely lost," he said.
A woman from the audience
raised her hand and said Knight's
cartoons are intelligent commen-
tary on society, while Marlette's
cartoon was purely destructive.
Knight added that whites don't
understand what it's like to be a


minority in American society.
"White people go through life
here in this country without ever
having to deal with black people or
Asians or any other race," he said.
"But that's not the case with every-
body else. We always have to deal
with white folks."
After the speech, Jimmy
Williams, a local artist, said he
respects Knight for his talent and
persistence.
"He was able to overcome the
hardships that black artists and en-
trepreneurs go through," he said.
"I admire his talent. There are
not many black artists who are
making it big," Williams.said.
The event was sponsored by
OASIS, a UF program that aids
with recruitment and retention of
minorities. It cost $2,000, in addi-
tion to airfare and other expenses.


City will decide on one-stop homeless center location


* THEY ARE MAKING A DECISION
BETWEEN SIX SPOTS.

By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
dharwell@alligator.org

The search for the site of a one-stop home-
less center that will feature $1.4 million a year
in aid and services may end Monday, when
Gainesville city commissioners are expected to


select their favorite from a list of six locations.
The two sites most favored by city staff
are a leased facility at 3335 N. Main Terrace
and city-owned land north of 39th Avenue on
Waldo Road, according to a city commission
agenda.
The one-stop center, which will contain
beds, showers, laundry facilities, child care
and other services, is the primary goal of
the city and county's 10-Year Plan to End
Homelessness. The center, which will be
named the GRACE Marketplace, has been


discussed since the plan was approved in
December 2005.
Roughly $100,000 is set aside for the costs
of building renovation and site development,
and about $67,000 will
Gainesvjlle City be available per year for
CommiSSion the lease or purchase of
the facility, according to
the agenda.
The two most popular sites for city officials
were chosen from a list of 125 potential spots.
Sites were compared using several criteria, in-


&


PRESENT


duding space, costs, possibilities of renovation
and "appropriate buffers to protect existing
neighborhoods."
The proposed site on N. Main Terrace,
which currently holds a warehouse, is about
one square acre. The Waldo Road site, a tree
farm located less than 500 yards away from an
RTS bus stop, is about 13 acres.
Both locations are more than 3 miles from
the Downtown Community Plaza, where
many of Gainesville's homeless spend their
time.

* THE FOOD AT WEAVER HALL WAS
EATEN IN 45 MINUTES.

By AMRA ZEJNELI
Alligator Contributing Writer
International music, foreign languages, UF
students and food from all over the world were
part of the International Food Festival held at
Weaver Hall's beach on campus Sunday eve-
ning.
About 150 students had a chance to taste food
from Turkey, Greece, Australia, France, Norway,
Japan, China, Taiwan and the Dominican
Republic. The smorgasboard disappeared in
about 45 minutes.
The free festival was organized by the resident
assistants of Weaver Hall and open to Weaver
Hall students and students living in the Tolbert
area.
Funding for the event, which cost about $500,
came from donations the UF Housing Office
made at the beginning of the school year.
The money went toward buying the ingre-
dients. Weaver Hall's international residents
cooked all the dishes themselves.
Erol Kavountzis, a UF graduate student and
the graduate hall director, said a lot of money was
spent on meat and French cheese.
Crepes, a French type of pancake, are popu-
lar throughout Europe, and they were just as
popular at the festival: They were gone in half
an hour.
Hassatou Ba and Isabel Raquin, exchange stu-
dents from France, spent most of Sunday prepar-
ing for the festival by making 40 crepes.
"Crepes are like pancakes, but they taste bet-
ter," Ba said. "Crepes are bigger, thinner, and you
eat them with sugar, chocolate cream, honey dr
jam. It's a very traditional dessert back home."
They also served French cheeses, camembert


and brie, with bread.
Susanne Gabrielsen, an international student
from Norway, was the student with the most
food varieties. She prepared ginger and carda-
mom beef with mashed potatoes, small bread
pieces with ham and potatoes on top, a choco-
late cake and what she said is Norway's most
traditional dish, sour-cream porridge. She said
she prepared the porridge last semester, too, and
people seemed to like it.
Gabrielsen said she learned how to cook while
she was in school. In Norway, she said, everyone
has to take a cooking class for a
On year.
Campus The festival also featured mixed
salads, rice balls with tuna and
mayonnaise, dumplings, Thai green
curry chicken prepared with coconut milk and
eggplant, and pavlova, a traditional Australian
dessert with a meringue crust and topped with
whipped cream, strawberries and kiwi.
Nicole Harris, a UF sophomore, attended the
event this year and last year.
"I like it because it shows you different cul-
tures and gives a taste of food from different re-
gions," Harris said. "They always bring different
people, so it's never the same typical thing over
and over again."
Weaver Hall has 176 residents, half of whom
are international students. The majority of stu-
dents come from China, Japan and Australia.
Kavountzis said the purpose of the festival is
to give international students the chance to show
where they are from and to give American stu-
dents the chance to interact with them.
Vilmarie Estrella, a UF senior and resident
assistant in Weaver Hall, said this year's festival
was just as successful as it has been in the past.
"A lot of residents came and tried food from
all around the world," Estrella said, "and that
just helps open up their minds and realize all the
diversity we have on this campus."


GREEK LIFE

UF's first black fraternity celebrates 35th anniversary


By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

As dodgeballs flew through the air, other
members of UF's Greek community were
celebrating their groups' anniversaries or
out planting trees.
The Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and Kappa
Alpha Theta Sorority held a dodgeball tour-
nament at Lake Alice Field on Saturday.
Ryland Rogers, the fraternity's vice presi-
dent, said more than 500 people showed
up and 40 teams participated to raise more


than $20,000 for the Jacob Isaac Rappoport
Foundation, which works to cure spinal
muscular atrophy. The Tau Epsilon Phi
Fraternity's team won the tournament.
The Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity the
first historically black Greek organization on
campus celebrated its 35th anniversary
this week.
Paul Drayton, the fraternity's president,
said brothers from the chapter's founding
and others from around the country came to
Gainesville to celebrate.
"We have our entire alumni coming


"It's a big brotherhood event for
us, and we take great pride in

back from 1972," Drayton said, "and there
are also brothers from chapters all over the
Southeast coming to visit."
Throughout the week, the fraternity
hosted a comedy show, political forum and


anniversary banquet.
Also, the Sigma Pi Fraternity planted
more than 100 trees on the west side of the
Levin College of Law on Sunday. Jake Frank,
the chairman of the project and a member of.
the fraternity, said Sigma Phi, which teamed
up with UF's Physical Plant Division to
plant the trees, tries to work with the divi-
sion at least once a semester.
"It's a big brotherhood event for us, and
we take great pride in doing it," Frank said.
Jason Silver is a UFjunior and a member
of Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity.

Families share in players' emotions


GATO RS, from page 1

Noah, UF's resident Sigmund
Freud, spoke in metaphors to ex-
plain this journey.
Last season Noah informed
you the Gators thrived off
the motto P.H.D. Poor. Hungry.
Driven.
This season Noah reminded
you UF has strained to lay off
the cholesterol accompanied with
a potentially bloated, pompous
defending national champion..
"We have to maintain that
P.H.D., but it's harder because
there's all these filet mignons and
salamis and good food every-
where," Noah said. "So we need to
be more focused and concentrated
than ever."
Abiding by the Atkins diet, UF
feasted on roast Duck, which al-
ways tastes better Gator-done.
The 25,947 spectators were a
raucous bunch. Armed with plas-
tic quackers and enough thunder


green and lightning yellow to rally
the faithful and simultaneously
send opposing fans into seizures,
Oregon's fans denounced UF and
the refereeing when it favored the
Gators.
"The Gator Boys are hot;
I'm not going to lie. But at
the same time we could
get hotter that's what
we're shooting for."
Joakim Noah
UF forward

The crowd could have been sub-
divided into one part Gators, two
parts Ducks and 10 parts everyone
else who served like Johnnie on the
Spot for Ducks fans.
"When you're the No. 1 seed,
everyone wants a piece of you,"
Noah said. "I remember watching
the Xavier-Ohio State game and no
one wanted Ohio State to win. It's
part of this culture. Everyone wants
to hype you up only to tear you


down. When you shine, you got
haters. Keep on hating. It fuels us."
Before the game, Tito, Al's fa-
ther, addressed a throng of Gators
fans at his hotel. He instructed
them to follow his cheer during
the game whose outcome he never
doubted.
"We knew they were going to
make it to the Final Four," he said.
Said Rodhe, Noah's mother,
"All the families are so united. It's
special. It's lovely. It's caring."
Said Yelena, her 20-year-old
daughter, "It's just amazing. Jo
was dreaming of this stuff when he
was 8 but I never thought it would
get this far."
Soon, players approached fam-
ily. Green hugged Sidney, who
said he nearly had a heart attack
while his son missed some late free
throws. As he smiled at his son,
Sidney wiped away tears.
"He was just happy for us,"
Brewer said. "We like to see that.
I hope he cries again next week-
end."


Faculty senator disagrees

JEB, from page 1

UF President Bernie Machen said in an e-mail.
However, after debate, senators decided Bush did not
support UF enough.
"One thing I've seen ... is the limited funding for
higher education in the state that has been diverted to
institutes located- closer to South Florida," Kathy Price, a
law professor and senator, said at
U F the meeting.
..r .:.aaI.; Joe Little, a UF law professor
and senator, wrote in a letter to
Machen that he was disappointed in comments Machen
made about the Senate's decision.
"You undercut your ability to lead when you deride
the academic decisions of your-colleagues," Little wrote.
"Disagreement is acceptable; disrespect is not."
He also wrote, "As UF president, you had the right to
debate and vote on the proposal, but you did neither."
In an interview Sunday, Little said he thought there
was political motive behind the nomination. "I don't
think it was fully a 'Gee whiz, this person really deserves
to be recognized for academic contributions or contribu-
tions to the university's decision/" Little said& .

make the university and Gainesville their
home.
It's a struggle for the university's reputa-
tion. And for some, it's a struggle to help the
university reach it's full potential.

THE NUMBERS TELLTHE STORY
The growth of black faculty at UF stalled
and reached a plateau between 1988 and
2005. In that 17-year period, the population
of full-time black faculty grew from 56 to 86,
according to statistics from the Office of the
Provost/Academic Affairs. In 2005, full-time
black faculty made up 2.9 percent of the total
university faculty.
The number of black faculty showed a mix
of sporadic growth and intermittent decline in
the mid-80s..
During the same period, the number of full-
time Hispanic faculty increased from 35 to 107
(3.62 percent of the full-time ranked staff).
From 1998 to 2006, on the other hand, the
number of white tenured faculty decreased
from 1,800 to 1,682.
Of the 1,930 tenured full-time faculty em-
ployed at the university this fall, 50 were black,
53 were Hispanic, 142 were Asian and 1,682
were white, according the Office of Institutional
Planning and Research.
The university also employed 33 tenure-
earning black faculty and 481 white tenure-
earning faculty.
Tenure-earning faculty are professors who
are trying to get a permanent appointment,
such as assistant professors. Nontenure-earn-
ing professors include visiting professors and
lecturers.
Of the 563 nontenure-earningprofessors, 411


were white, 13 were black, 34 were Hispanic,
and 104 were Asian or Asian American. In all
categories, men outnumbered women.

THE NUMBERS ARE TROUBLING
President Bernie Machen said the low
numbers of black faculty are troubling.
"Why .is it a problem? Because great uni-
versities desire diversity," he said.
Machen said the faculty population should
at least be as diverse as the student body.
"At a minimum, we would like our faculty
to be as diverse as our student body," Machen
said. "In an ideal world, I'd like our student
body to be as diverse as our state."
Of the 36,163 undergraduates enrolled at
the university last fall, 23,809 were white, 4,693
were Hispanic, 3,456 were black and 2,625
were Asian American, according to the Office
of Institutional Planning and Research.
Machen said he does not have an official
plan to improve recruitment of black faculty
but has asked college deans to search for di-
verse pools of candidates. He has also asked
faculty to look into the issue.
Anthony Greene, president of the
Association of Black Faculty and Staff, said
Machen has not worked hard enough.
He said the stagnation in recruitment is a
more than decade-old problem, but Machen
has not sufficiently acted on the issue. Greene
said Machen emphasized improving diversity
when he came to university but has not acted
on his ideas.

THE NUMBERS COULD BE IMPROVED
Debra Walker King, associate provost of
faculty development, said the number of
minority faculty at UF could be improved.

as a seven-point agenda for diversity Oct. 5, 2000, at the Frederic G. Levin College of Law
Auditorium. Nunn resigned from associate provost of the Levin College of Law in 2000
becausee he felt officials were blocking the recruitment of black faculty.


y Gainesville's rural location, Greene said.
Candidates from cities might see Gainesville
is part of the stereotypically rural, white-domi-
tated South, he said.
There are gathering places like the
institute of Black Culture and organizations
- such as the Gainesville chapter of the National
sociation for the Advancement of Colored
peoplee for blacks in Gainesville, but they're
lot always immediately noticeable, Greene said.
[he institute, for example, can only host a limited
ount of guests.
Nunn said black faculty also have trouble
finding jobs for their spouses or partners in
_ainesville. He said the university should help
faculty connect with employers in the city.
Machen said Gainesville is a socio-eco-
tomically, and consequentially racially divided
ity. The city is separated into East and West
Sainesville, East Gainesville being predomi-
tately black.

FACULTY STUDENTS
PERCEIVE UF AS UNWELCOMING
Among some minority faculty and students,
JF is perceived as being unwelcoming toward
minorities.
Evans said UF and other Florida universities
vere historically slow to desegregate, which
eated a perceived legacy of difficult access to
education.



NOT JUST DIVERSITY FOR THE
OF DIVERSITY, ITS DIVERSITY FOR
THE SAKE OF EXCELLENCE."

DEBRA WALKER KING
CIATE PROVOST OF FACULTY
DEVELOPMENT

UF also has a reputation as a party school
dominated by white Greek organizations.
All past university presidents have been white
nd male. Most college deans are white, though
he two most recent deans hired are black.
Machen said the perception that the univer-
ity is unwelcoming toward minorities extends
o students.
"I have talked to African-American students
vhose friends, and even their parents, tell them
Don't go there,'" Machen said.
Evans said the university could show it
institutionalizes and supports diversity by sup-
,orting ethnic studies programs, such as African
tmerican, Asian-American and American Indian
studies.


She said minority faculty might look to ensure
UF supports these programs before applying for
a job. Supporting ethnic studies shows that a
university is willing and prepared to talk about
diversity.
"Good campuses talk about race," she said.

UF HAS PROBLEMS WITH
BLACK FACULTY RETENTION
The university needs to improve the retention
of black faculty, especially nontenured profes-
sors, Greene said.
Black faculty have complained of feeling
like they get heavier work and teaching loads
than their colleagues, he said. They also feel like
they're asked to represent their race or gender on
department committees.
Sometimes, black faculty encounter subtle or
unintentional mistreatment in their departments,
he said. A colleague dr superior could call a black
faculty member "articulate" or act surprised that
the faculty member submitted an exceptional
piece of work, he added.
Comments like these can imply that the per-
son had lower expectations of the black faculty
and could be seen as offensive, even if they're not
always intended as insults, Greene said.
Greene said he faced this type of attitude
while trying to earn tenure.
When Greene was an assistant professor
at UF's Department of Clinical and Health
Psychology in 1994, the then-chairman of his de-
partment told him his published articles on anger
and personality traits among domestic violence
offenders were "superficial."
"I was deeply offended, especially as he did
not offer further explanation or elaboration,"
Greene said.
He said the chair's criticism pushed him to
resign from the department.
Word of perceived mistreatment can reach po-
tential black faculty at other schools and discour-
age them from applying at UF, Greene said.

OLD HABITS ARE DIFFICULTTO CHANGE
Nunn said changing department attitudes
toward minority faculty is an uphill battle requir-
ing a culture change in some departments.
"When a black faculty member comes here,
it's almost with the expectation of that type of
attitude," Nunn said.
Students can also take part in the discrimina-
tion, Evans said.
She said students are more likely to challenge
her because she is a young black woman. On
one occasion, a white student who cheated in
one of Evans' classes accused her favoring black
students. Evans brought the case to the Dean of
Students Office, which supported her attempts to
defend herself from the accusation.


~SFj:
"


Machen said he did not think black faculty are
intentionally mistreated within their own depart-
ments, but the perception that discrimination
occurs is troubling.
The two times he investigated claims that a
faculty member was denied tenure because of
discrimination, Machen found no evidence of
racism.
He said the university is generally an "en-
lightened" and accepting community.
"The idea that I don't enjoy being around fac-
ulty that's different than me is antithetical to the
university environment," Machen said.

NUMBERS OF HISPANICS INCREASE
BUT ARE STILL LOW
While the growth of black faculty has
slowed, Machen said the ranks of Hispanic and
Asian faculty have grown steadily in recent
years though they are still smaller than they
should be.
As the first minority hired and tenured by
the sociology department, Heran Vera said he
was lonely when he arrived at the school in the
mid-1970s.
He said racism and ignorance within de-
partments and the administration keeps the
university's minority faculty population low.
"After working here for 33 years, a large
part of my colleagues still don't know how to
pronounce my name," Vera said.
Hemandez-Truyol, the law professor, said
she sat on former provost David Colburn's
committee on diversity in 2002 and was sur-
prised to learn that she was one of only a few
Latina professors at the time.
Hemandez-Truyol said the university can
reach out to more Hispanic faculty by extend-
ing searches to the West Coast and universi-
ties in Central and South America and the
Caribbean.

ASIAN AMERICAN FACULTY
NEEDS MORE SUPPORT
Malini Schueller, an English professor and
director of the Asian-American studies certifi-
cate, said she was the department's lone Asian
professor for many years.

Schueller, who started at UF in 1988, said
the university must show support of Asian
American programs and an active Asian
American student population to attract more
Asian American faculty.
She said an Asian-American professor in
the counseling department told her he chose to
come to UF over a school in Maryland because
he was impressed with students who came to
his job interview.
More Asian-American faculty will be drawn
to the university if they see Asian American
professors thriving at the university.
And an Asian American studies minor or
major could also draw more instructor inter-
ested in the subject to the university, Schueller
said.
Schueller added that the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences has not supported the Asian-
American studies program, which detracts
faculty from applying to UF.
"We're building this Asian-American cer-
tificate and trying to expand to a minor out of
thin air," Schueller said.

STUDENTS ARE THE KEY
Tamara Cohen, director of Multicultural and
Diversity Affairs, said the university needs to di-
versify faculty to prepare students for an increas-
ingly global world.
Depending on their careers, many students
will be entering workplaces where their co-work-
ers come from different backgrounds and are
different races.
She said the university needs to show stu-
dents that the faculty is diverse and minorities
are role models and not just relegated to the roles
of secretaries.
Billy Holcombe, who is president of the Black
Student Union and a graduate student, said black
faculty at the university have been able to offer
him unique, "real-world" experience.
Evans said that the recruitment of minor-
ity students is as important as that of minority
faculty.
"If you want to have a quality school, you
have to have a diverse population. Or you will be
left in the dust," she said.

Humphrey rips 3-point record, net

0 THE SENIOR HIT SEVEN THREES.

By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer.
jmarina@aliigator.org

ST. LOUIS Lee Humphrey broke the record and
then broke the net.
Humphrey became UF's career leader for 3-point-
ers Sunday afternoon when he sank one 10 minutes
into the first half during the top-seeded Gators' 85-77
victory against third-seeded Oregon.
One 3-pointer later, the guard caused a 10-minute
delay when he swished a three which caused one of
the netting's loops to snap from the rim.
"That's when I was like, 'He's on fire,'" forward
Corey Brewer said. "It was like in the (video game)
NBA Jam when the nets just catch fire."'
Half of the delay was spent looking for a ladder
to fix the nets, and during halftime, both nets were
switched out with new ones.
"I've never seen anybody in my .
life literally break the nets when he
Men s shoots," senior Chris Richard said.
Men's "Once he hit that shot I think it kind
Basketball of gave us a boost and helped us out
a lot."
Humphrey's seven 3-pointers
tied a career high, and the guard has now converted
280 shots from behind the arc for his career.
"It's a pretty cool accomplishment," Humphrey
said of his record. "I mean, there's been a lot of great
players at Florida and to hold that record is pretty
cool."
Humphrey led the Gators with 23 points during
the hard-fought game.
With the win, UF advances to the Final Four for
the second year in a row and the fourth time in school
history.
Oregon made four more shots than UF (27 to 23),
dished out three more assists (13 to 10), committed
five fewer turnovers (13 to 18) and amassed three
more steals (eight to five).
However, the Gators sank 13 more free throws and
hit three more 3-pointers than the Ducks to seal the Tim asey Alligator Staff

Machen: Donovan should consider UK


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
nzaccardi@alligator.org

ST. LOUIS UF President' Bernie
Machen wants Billy Donovan to talk to
Kentucky.
But he's not going to let Donovan get
away.
"He owes it to himself to look at the
Kentucky job if they offer him the job,"
Machen said. "But we're not going to lose
Billy Donovan to anybody. He's the best


coach in America. He's
going to be a Gator for as
long as he coaches."
Machen, Donovan
and Athletics Director
Jeremy Foley have dis-
cussed extending the
coach's contract for the
Donovan past year.
Donovani, in his 11th
season with the Gators, has two years left
on his current agreement which pays $1.7
million per year.


UF's Board of Trustees met Thursday
and Friday and a revamped deal could
result from the talks.
Machen, said he has not heard from
Kentucky requesting to speak with
Donovan.
Donovan said Sunday that he has not
answered his cell phone while in St. Louis.
"Kentucky, if that's who they want,
- they'll make him an incredible offer,"
Machen said. "We have ways of making
our own offers, and we've got the Florida

Gator Nation is still tipsy off Lee

Donovan said.
"It has every-

I cannot control different things that

anything or do anything, because that is

Last week, Tubby Smith left Kentucky
to coach Minnesota. This is grounds for
another column that would debate,
among other things, who would win a
fight between a rabies-infested Gopher
and a spayed Wildcat.
Anyhow, Donovan once served as an
assistant at Kentucky. He speaks of the
place as if Jesus once visited Rupp Arena
and performed the miracle of the corn
breads and fried chickens for a famished
home crowd.
But he has been in Gainesville since
1996. And unless you've been living un-
der Roseanne's chin, you also know he
has orchestrated a bazillion wins during
that span
So the question becomes: Is Donovan
interested or isn't he?

UF SOFTBALL

Gators demolish Bulldogs, stretch win streak to 7


,By KARL WIPPOLITE
Alligator Writer


The Gators are on a roll.
Rolling so fast they left tread
marks on No. 18 Georgia.
Sunday's 5-1 win completed
a three-game home sweep of the
Bulldogs, extending the UF softball
team's winning streak to seven.
The Gators (27-14, 5-6
Southeastern Conference) started
the series with a 5-2 win Saturday
afternoon. Their bats stayed alive
in the second game as UF throttled


Georgia in a 14-0 rout.
Just one week ago, UF was reel-
ing after a sweep by LSU. The team's
ability to score was questioned and
pitcher Stacey Stevens was coming
off the worst stretch of her season.
Now, the Gators averaging
6.9 runs per game during their
win streak are absolutely giddy.
Stevens has allowed just three hits in
her last two starts and has 17 strike-
outs in her last three starts.
"The midweek games were fun,"
Stevens said. "But everything we
did was in preparation for Georgia


"I always have confidence,
and I go up there knowing I
can get a hit."
Kim Waleszonia
UF second baseman

and it's fun taking three games from
them.
"That's something that's never
been done in my four years here
- and I've never beaten them in
the cirde before so it's a great
feeling."


To Stevens, getting run support
was the key, and she got plenty in
Saturday's blowout. She struck out
four in five innings.
Every starter got a hit and four
players scored at least two runs in
the game. Right fielder Mary Ratliff,
who had never hit a home run be-
fore Thursday, hit two.
UF coach Tim Walton has a sim-
ple explanation for all-the offensive
firepower the Gators unleashed:
"Balls are finally falling for a
couple kids," Walton. said. "And
you are starting to feel a little confi-


dent that really helps. With that
going it really helps to get a base
hit instead of getting out. Even if
you hit the ball hard and get a little
blooper, that little blooper might get
things going."
Second baseman Kim Waleszonia
was full of confidence this weekend.
The sophomore led the offensive
charge with seven hits, six runs bat-
ted in and scored five runs.
"It's all about maintaining confi-
dence," Waleszonia said. "I always
have confidence, and I go up there
knowing I can get a hit."


UF comes from behind twice to sweep Auburn series


* THE GATORS ARE TIED FOR FIRST
IN THE SEC.

By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Writer
The UF baseball team got some spring
cleaning done during the weekend, sweeping
Auburn to move into a tie for first place in the
Southeastern Conference.
The Gators (14-13, 4-2 SEC) earned their
first sweep of an SEC opponent since 2005.
"It's huge for this ballclub," first baseman
Matt LaPorta said. "We talked about it after
Saturday's game that we had to leave this


weekend 4-2 not 3-3 in the SEC."
The Gators' bullpen allowed 16 runs in
last weekend's conference opener versus
Mississippi State, but held the Tigers (18-9, 0-6
SEC) to just six runs in16 innings.
"It was great the way they came in and
competed," LaPorta said. "I love watching
our guys come in from the bullpen and just
shut it down and get this ballclub a win. The
fire they had in their eyes out there was just
awesome."
After come-from-behind wins Friday and
Saturday, UF completed the sweep with an
easy 10-3 victory Sunday, thanks to two home
runs from LaPorta.
The senior set the tone early with a two-


run blast in the first, and added a solo shot in
the eighth for his fifth-career multi-home run
game. He finished 4 for 4 with four RBI and
three runs.
On Saturday, the Gators
Trailed 6-5 in the seventh
before an RBI single by
sophomore Cody Neer tied
it up.
Freshman Matt den
Dekker then delivered a
LaPorta two-RBI single with the
bases loaded to give the
Gators a lead that they wouldn't relinquish, as
they added four more runs in the inning.
Friday's tilt provided a more. dramatic


finish, where a freshman again delivered the
blow.
With two outs in the 10th inning of a 7-7 tie,
freshman Cole Figueroa slapped an RBI single
to give the Gators an 8-7 lead. Sophomore
Patrick Keating then retired the Auburn bat-
ters in order to earn the win.
The Gators are now above .500 and have
moved from the bottom to the top of the
conference. They will host Bethune-Cookman
on Tuesday before traveling to Georgia next
weekend.
"It's just the second weekend. We can't get
complacent," LaPorta said. "We need to keep
working hard and battling to get better every
day and every weekend."

UF FOOTBALL


Backup QB Waggener breaks foot during practice


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
bjones@alligator.org

Quarterback Bryan Waggener
broke his left foot in practice
Wednesday and will likely be out for
the remainder of spring practice, UF
coach Urban Meyer said Friday.
A junior college transfer,
Waggener was competing with true
freshman Cameron Newton for the
backup job behind Tim Tebow.
"Doggone it, that's a tough deal,"
Meyer said. "A tough deal for us
and even tougher for him, because


he's a competitor, and he was doing
pretty good."
Considering Tebow's reckless
style of play, the Gators need all the
depth they can get at the position.
"The positive is that Cam
Newton now is going to get 64,000
reps," Meyer said. "And he needs
every one of those."
While Waggener was only able
to practice one day, he was already
displaying the poise the coaching
staff was expecting from him, UF
offensive coordinator and quarter-
backs coach Dan Mullen said.
"He did right what we were ex-


"We're a mess right now
back there."

UF football coach

pecting (Wednesday)," Mullen said.
"He walked into his first practice
at a college level, stepped into the
huddle, commanded respect, was
able to call the play, knew what was
going on and managed the offense."
Meanwhile, the 6-foot-5, 242-
pound Newton is experiencing
growing pains.


"In high school they're seeing
two, three or four different defenses
in a whole entire game," Mullen
said. "He-saw six different blitzes
in his first six plays out here. He's
speaking a whole new language and
learing'a whole new system at a
much faster speed."
With Waggener's injury, the
Gators will go through' spring
practice with only two scholarship
quarterbacks for the second straight
season. Waggener should be back in
the fall, when touted freshman John
Brantley will join the team.


SECONDARY CONCERNS: Sophomore
comeback Markihe Anderson in-
jured his back Friday, while sopho-
more comeback Jacques Rickerson
has still not fully recovered from
arthroscopic knee surgery he under-
went last month.
Meyer said Anderson's status is
unknown. Anderson and Rickerson
are two of the leading candidates to
replace both starting comers from
last season's squad. The Gators are
also searching for a new free safety
and nickel comer.
"We're a mess right now back
there," Meyer said.

Editor's note:
Beginning with the SEC season,
the alligatorSports staff will vote
on the top three UF basketball

with the most combined points

champion, you have to come at them and
it's got to be a battle there, and you wish
you could have battled a little more, few
less fouls and everything," Oregon coach
Ernie Kent said.
UF benefited from its size advantage,
grabbing 15 more rebounds than Oregon.
Outside of 6-foot-9 Maarty Leunen,
UF's frontcourt had at least 4 inches on
every Ducks player.
When the All-Regional team was about
to be announced, many of the Gators


pointed at Humphrey, expecting the
sharpshooter to earn MVP.
When point guard Taurean Green's
name was called in-
stead, Humphrey, who
did earn a spot on the
team, pointed at the
junior. Green led the
Gators against Butler
with 17 points and
` i hit another 21 points
Green against Oregon.
The players always
strived for repeat success, but Richard said
getting to Atlanta is harder than it looks.


"I don't think anybody understands
because everyone expected us to do it,"
Richard said. "Last year was great because
it was our first time ever doing it. Now I
think we want it even more because we
have a lot to prove.
"Plus we have a lot of people hoping
we don't do it."
As Brewer approached the free-throw
line with 1.4 seconds left, Donovan walked
Sthe length of the bench, high-fiving and
saying "Final Four" to each individual.
"I'm just so blessed to have done this at
such a young age, to have done this with
these kids," Donovan said.

fans. We want what's best for
Billy, and we think that's the
University of Florida."
As the team cut down the
nets, Gators fans chanted,
"We've got deeper pockets"
toward Donovan.
That might be what it comes


down to.

PORTER GOES COLD: Oregon
guard Tajuan Porter couldn't
live up to his own hype
Sunday.
He scored 10 points and
missed his first fen shots after
torching UNLV for 33 points in
the Sweet 16 with an NCAA re-
gional record eight 3-pointers.


Porter, a 5-foot-6 freshman,
attributed his poor perfor-
mance to too much excitement.
"I was just a little too
hyped," he said.
He committed four turn-
overs, and scored just 4 points,
all on free throws, in the first 39
minutes.
Porter's impressive show-
ing against UNLV made him


a media darling on Saturday's
off-day.
It also made Donovan take
notice.
"You look at the shots Porter
made against UNLV, they were
the same exact shots he missed
against us," Donovan said.
"He's so fast and quick you're
not going to prevent him from
getting it off."


If not, he would have quelled the ru-
mors with a statement like: "I see palm
trees on my way to work. I am a multi-
millionaire.. My kids mingle with those
of Urban Meyer, whose football team
should rule the college landscape for
years. Oh, and did I mention that I am
the greatest hoops coach to ever place my
royal heels in Gainesville? I could lose 30
games next season and you would still
see my lovable face on commercials for
the Village Jeweler. So basically, Kentucky
smells funkier than Ashley Judd in a ma-
nure wrestling contest. Thanks, but no
thanks."
Oftentimes the strongest words are
those never said. Instead of denying in-
terest in the Kentucky opening, Donovan
has divulged a public relations statement
that makes his interest obviously appar-
ent.
If not, he is using Kentucky as a
bargaining chip. Donovan's seven-year
contract of $1.7 million annually expires
in two years. UF athletics director Jeremy
Foley could have hammered out an ex-
tension by now but hasn't. Now he's in
trouble. Not only would the Wildcats part
with their bluegrass to have Donovan,
but NBA teams continue to be enamored
with UF's coach as well.
Donovan could easily parlay this
attention into a $2-plus million-a-year
extension. His players might disown him
if he does.
"I don't even think that's something
that's crossed his mind," Joakim Noah
said. "If it did then that would be messed
up. I would be disappointed in my coach
because I know he's not like that."
Added Corey Brewer: "I don't think
Florida has anything to worry about.
Why would you leave Florida to go to
Kentucky where nothing is really good
enough unless you win a national cham-
pionship?"
Exactly. Leaving UF for Kentucky
would be like Queen Elizabeth abdicat-
ing her throne in the United Kingdom4o
rebuild Armenia.
In Gainesville, Donovan has every-
one's approval, win or lose. In Lexington,
Ky. Donovan has a herd of nutty follow-
ers who would expect him to replicate
UF's title within two years. Yet he is
somehow still intrigued.
If he leaves, you'd have to call him
Silly Dumbovan.

The university's barely funded African American Studies Program suffered from a lack of support, and an Asian-American studies certificate was non-existent. In addition, then, as is now, some departments only had one full-time black profesof black faculty that could be fought by taksor. ing steps to show that the Gator Nation has a commitment to diversity.

Jeb Bush an honorary degree Thursday, UF's Alumni Association's Board of Directors unanimously named him an honorary alumnus Saturday. Bush's alumus status was not originally on the agenda with the other two nominees for the honor, but David Lowe, a former Alumni Association president, said he nominated him because he thought it was the "right thing to do." He also said the Senate's decitsion to deny Bush an honorName ary degree was a factor in his nomination. "Some things should transcend politics," Lowe said. "Governor Bush did a lot to raise the profile of UF during his tenure." The degrees have been given to eight former Florida governors, as well as Sen. John McCain. According to a press release, the association's resolution named Bush's attempts to attract research to Florida as a reason for the acknowledgment. The resolution also mentioned Bush's support of the state's donation matching programs and efforts to attract the best faculty to UF, the release stated. "In my opinion, he is certainly deserving of recognition with an honorary degree, and I am disappointed that the Faculty Senate failed to ratify the endorsement of the Honorary Degree Committee," SEE JEB, PAGE 11 N UF guard Lee Humphrey torched Oregon with seven 3pointers in the Midwest Regional Final on Sunday.

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 E ALLIGATDR, 3 Pets picked up by new families at Adopt-A-Thon Charles Roop / Alligator Daniella Vega, 4, stands with her recently adopted puppy -which has yet to be named -at the Puppy Hill Farm Animal Rescue tent near The Oaks Mall on Sunday. N ABOUT 110 WERE ADOPTED. By ETHEL MORENO Alligator Contributing Writer The Billingses knew Scooter was the one. "We just saw him and fell in love," said Gainesville resident Holly Billings of the 2-year-old dog. Scooter, a small dirty-blond shepherd mix, was one of about 110 pets adopted at the Lucky Pets Adopt-AThon 2007. The event took place Saturday and Sunday on the South Lawn of The Oaks Mall. Maddie's Pet Rescue Project of Alachua County, which is composed of six pet-rescue agencies, brought more than 200 cats and dogs for adoption. The six agencies are working together under a 10-year grant to end the euthanasia of animals in Alachua County by 2011, said Chase Wiley, the coordinator of events for Maddie's Pet Rescue Project of Alachua County. Of the six agencies, Alachua County Animal Services is the only pet-rescue center that performs euthanasia. Because the shelter is county-funded, it's legally required to put down animals when there is not enough space for them all, Wiley said. "It's unfortunate," Wiley said. "We try not to let that happen. Animal services aren't the bad guys." He said the six agencies constantly communicate with each other to figure out where to place animals in danger of euthanasia so that no animal is unnecessarily killed. Instead, they try to find the pets permanent homes through projects like the Adopt-A-Thon. Billings said she thinks it's important to adopt shelter dogs because they need attention. Some of the previously homeless pets at the event needed attention more than others. Julie, a 5-yearAround old Persian cat, was Gainesville missing a left eye and most of her hair was shaved off because it was so matted, but she still managed to get adopted Saturday. She came from a home with a woman who had about 60 cats, said Kristen Marshall, the manager of Helping Hands Pet Rescue. Marshall said consequently, Julie had been neglected at her old home. Wiley said animals like Julie are frequently adopted because they are unique and people fall in love with them. As for Scooter, Billings said there is no better relationship than a boy and his dog. She thought adopting Scooter would be a good way for her 2-year-old son to learn about compassion while giving him a companion. "I think they're getting along beautifully," she said as her son tugged Scooter's red leash and walked him across the field. ENVIRONMENT UF lags in competition for university recycling programs By KATIE PACKER Alligator Contributing Writer While UF is aiming for its second basketball national championship in a row, its falling behind in other national rankings. UF is competing for the first time against more than 200 other schools in RecycleMania, a 10-week nationwide competition among college and university recycling programs to encourage waste reduction. The amount in pounds of paper, cardboard and beverage containers recycled per person is compared weekly to other competing schools until the contest ends April 7. As of Sunday, UF is ranked first out of the four schools competing in Florida, but nationwide, it comes in at No. 69. Students need to be more aware about what can be recycled, and recycling needs to become a habit, said Adrian Erlenbach, a UF sophomore and intern for UF's Office of Sustainability. "It's just not convenient when you're not used to it. Recycling is 'not that hard -people just need to change their mindset," she said. Ryan Graunke, a UF junior and intern "it will take a few years for recycling to become second nature." Dale Morris UF Physical Plant Department coordinator at the Office of Sustainability will be promoting his education program, Recycling IQ, at a table this week on the Reitz Union. Colonnade. He hopes to encourage more people to recycle and boost UF's ranking in the last few weeks of RecycleMania. Dale Morris, the recycling and solid waste coordinator for UF's Physical Plant Department, stressed the importance of balancing the number of trash bins with recycling bins on campus to encourage people to recycle. "It will take a few years for recycling to become second nature," Morris said. UF students and faculty recycle nearly 140 tons of paper per month and 14 tons of drink containers per week. Morris said he would like to see these numbers rise. "Bragging rights is inspiration for behavior change," ErlenbAch said. "Gators expect the best."

4, ALLIGATOR N MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 U.S. CONGRESS War questions aimed at Rep. By JASON SILVER Alligator Contributing Writer When Gainesville's congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives came to town Saturday, he asked some constituents how they felt about paying for college and pulling troops from Iraq. While the talk about tuition was brief and civil, the 40-strong crowd's words on war were a mixed rabble of cheers and jeers. Cliff Stearns, a Republican from Ocala, raised his voice over crowd members arguing among themselves to ask if they wanted U.S. troops to be recalled from Iraq. The crowd's reaction was an outburst of booing and applause. Even though Stearns came to Gainesville to discuss a range of issues, such as health care and motivating college graduates to take local jobs, most of the people gathered in the Florida Department of Agriculture's Doyle Connor building on Southwest 34th Street wanted to talk about all things related to the war. Harold Saive, an Air Force veteran representing Veterans for Peace, said he came to the meeting to talk about the injustices American troops face when receiving health care. Stearns "Right now, health care for veterans is disingenuous," he said. Save stood and told Steams that medical facilities are inadequate and soldiers need a choice when it comes to selecting hospitals. "The facilities are run down right now. They can't handle all the troops coming back," Saive said. "Soldiers are dying in line waiting for treatment." Stearns said if U.S. troops leave Iraq, they have to do so in an honorable way. One woman stood and responded by saying that honor changes daily, but soldiers' deaths and injuries are permanent. Steams also discussed issues facing UF students. "I think we have to be sure students get high-paying jobs, and I would like to -see them get those jobs here in Gainesville," Stearns said. "There are many opportunities now with jobs that deal with technology in Alachua County." One major issue students have is not being able to pay back their loans, he said. "I've voted in Congress several times to reduce the interest rates that UF students have to pay," he said. Stearns ended the meeting by urging everyone to be more involved in government. FLURIUA VS.

Healthier sodas By LYDIA FERNANDEZ Alligator Contributing Writer Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are joining the health craze by introducing alternatives to their products. In April, Coca-Cola will release Diet Coke Plus, and in the fall, PepsiCo will launch a drink called Tava. Both carbonated drinks will have added vitamins and minerals. The new products are not being promoted as sodas but as sparkling beverages. Public "The consumer is the one in charge, and it's Health up to the beverage companies, like ours, to develop the products they want," wrote PepsiCo spokeswoman Michelle Naughton in an e-mail. She said Tava will contain no calories or caffeine but will be artificially sweetened. Susan McDermott, a spokeswoman for Coca-Cola, said Diet Coke Plus will taste similar to Diet Coke. Unlike Tava, the drink will include caffeine. Gary Libretti, a personal trainer at the UF Department of Recreational Sports and a UF junior majoring in food science and human nutrition, said he doubts the healthfulness of the new drinks. "For me, it's still soda," Libretti said. "As long as it's carbonated water and artificial sweeteners, it's soda." K

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 5 MEMORIAL Costumes honor -students By JESSICA DaSILVA Alligator Staff Writer jdasilva@alligator.org Donning black and yellow stripes and wings or pirate hats and plastic swords, friends of Christina Pitcher and Ashley Renee Mills partied as bumblebees and pirates to remember their friends. U1F students Pitcher and villis died after a car accident during Spring Break, and about 30 friends gathered at the pair's apartment Saturday night dressed in costumes similar to ones Mills and Pitcher wore last Halloween, a bumblebee and pirate, respectively. The two 22-year-old LF seniors died March 10 after a car accident on the Florida Turnpike. Earlier that day, about 40 people attended a memorial at St. Augustine Catholic Church. During the service, the pair's roommates, Ashley Glenn and Meghan Connor, told stories about Pitcher and Mills. Glenn said that she, Pitcher and Connor were originally like the Three Musketeers. But Mills, "the most successful random roommate assignment," quickly became their fourth. She said she was walking down the beach the day after the accident and started crying. When it started to rain, she wondered if life could get any worse. But when she saw two full rainbows connecting the shore to the ocean, she took it as a sign that Mills and Pitcher were still with her. "We not only have one but two beautiful angels looking down from heaven," she said. After the service, several family members and friends shared stories about the two women. "We not only have one but two beautiful angels looking down from heaven." Meghan Connor roomate of Pitcher and Mills Glenn and Connor joked with Mills' mother, Carolyn Williams, about how she was a few minutes late to the service. "(Mills would) probably be happy that you were wearing the right makeup," Connor said. "And new shoes," Williams added, laughing. Mills' grandmother, Evelyn Williams, listened to party stories about Mills with amused shock. "My precious little angel drank beer?" she asked in a thick Georgia accent. Study: CPR's mouthto-mouth not helpful By LINDSEY KARLIN Alligator Contributing Writer A new study showspeople should eliminate mouth-to-mouth ventilation when performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, more commonly known as CPR. The study, which was conducted by a Japanese study group and published in the British medical journal The Lancet, shows only doing chest compressions during CPR increases the survival rate and, because of constant blood flow to the brain, doubles the brain function of people who go into cardiac arrest. "This is a very important message, considering the very low percent of cases that are successfully resuscitated," said Dr. Carl J. Pepine, chief of cardiovascular medicine at the UF College of Medicine. According to an editorial accompanying the study, three out of four people who witness a cardiac arrest -when someone's heart stops -are reluctant to perform CPR because of the likelihood of confusing the process or the fear Public of getting an infectious Health disease from mouthto-mouth contact. Pepine said the study will encourage bystanders to perform CPR. "I think it's great that they're finding ways to improve CPR and help people," said Nathan Telaraja, a UF freshman and vice president of Red Cross Gators. "A groundbreaking study like this can be crucial to getting more civilians trained in CPR."

6, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 Editorial Black and white UF needs more minority professors and faculty Y ou' probably on campus right now, waiting for class to start -or perhaps you're even in class right now, reading while you should be taking notes. Well, take a look around. We're willing to bet that most of your professors are white. Outside of African-American studies, foreign language and diversity-focus classes, we're willing to bet most students have never had a professor who was black, Hispanic or AsianAmerican. And that's a problem. Black faculty make up less than 3 percent of total faculty -but black students make up almost 7.5 percent of UF's student population. Only 3.62 percent of UF's faculty are Hispanic, while Hispanic students make up almost 11 percent of the student body. If UF administration wants to increase the university's diversity, it needs to improve the ratios of minority faculty members to white faculty members. Even UF President Bernie Machen said UF's faculty needs to be as diverse as its student body. But the Black Faculty and Staff Association's president, Anthony Greene, said Machen hasn't done enough. And that's the catch-22. Of course UF wants to hire more minority faculty. But according to UF officials, those candidates don't seem to be out there, especially in certain fields. Sure, maybe no black candidates applied for those positions, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there. Almost 70 percent of FAMU's faculty are black -so why can't UF seem to recruit black faculty? Maybe Bernie and Co. aren't trying hard enough. The UF administration needs to network more with predominantly black universities, like Bethune-Cookman College and Florida A&M University. UF could create partnerships with these schools, maybe something like an exchange program for professors. Or, even better, it could work harder to recruit new professors. UF, as a strong research university, offers opportunities for research that are not available at smaller colleges. But the weight doesn't fall solely on UF's shoulders. The burden is on Gainesville as well. Our fair city has had its share of race-related problems, making it seem like a not-so-hospitable place for minorities. There's the split between East and West Gainesville (well call it "Main Street"). There's the slightly rural-town feel that might put some people off. Gainesville needs to prove that it is a welcoming place for everyone. The city is making progress, though. The Southeast Gainesville Renaissance Initiative is a step in the right direction. And Gainesville is host to local organizations like the Gainesville chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. UF also has some internal problems. Black faculty sometimes feel discriminated againstmaybe not outright, but little things, such as the feeling that other faculty have lower expectations for them or that they were denied opportunities because of their race. Only when faculty feel comfortable and accepted into the UF community will they encourage their colleagues from other colleges and universities to join them. We know there are qualified black, Hispanic -and AsianAmerican professors out there. We not only need to find them -we need to make them want to come to UP. Until UF's faculty is representative of the world we live in, the Gator Nation will not match up to the real world. 0 the independent florida alligator Jessica Riffel EDITOR Kat Laskowski MANAGING EDITOR Jessica Holland OPINIONS EDITOR Tom Durrenberger Leigh Shapiro Jonathan Tietz EDITORIAL BOARD The Alligator encourages comments from readers.

Opinions a.1081 PNAa AAAAAAAA!(, PI Colum,,n Boob jobs not low s R ecently, a study was conducted about the psychological effects of breast implants by Cynthia igueroa-Hass, a clinical assistant professor at UF's College of Nursing. If you've been on the UF home page lately, you've probably seen a link to an article about the study. Here's how it went: Figueroa-Haas measured the selfesteem and sexuality of 84 women, ages 21 to 57, with two widely accepted scientific scales. Before participating in the study, the women involved had already scheduled their surgeries and had chosen to get breast implants for purely cosmetic reasons. Three months after the surgery those women took the same tests to determine their new levels of self-esteem and sexuality. On average, the scores rose significantly. Although she feels plastic surgery is not a cure-all for those with low self-esteem, Figueroa-Haas says this demonstrates the "genuine psychological improvements that follow plastic surgery." Such a claim should not be made lightly. First of all, the second round of analyses was done three months after the surgery. I wonder how the scores might change after a year or two, once the initial satisfaction wears off. Secondly -and much more importantly -if your self-esteem depends on how you look, then breast implants are only treating the symptom, not the cause, of low self-esteem. Imagine a guy named Steve. Steve feels bad about himself because he has little string-bean muscles. He decides that he'll feel better if he looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger, so he starts taking steroids. If you have trouble imagining Steve, take a walk around the weight room at the Southwest Recreation Center. So, Steve takes the steroids, gets huge and starts to feel great about himself. He's more confident and sexually satisfied. Unfortunately, the steroid solution only temporarily addresses a symptom of his self-esteem problem. ALLIGATOR www.alligator.org/opinions ONC FOiR A ThA NTA.1/ I I F/ elf-esteem solution The root cause of whatever dissatisfaction Steve feels is ignored. When all is said and done, his self-esteem is still based on, or at least deeply affected by, his appearance. The real solution would be for Patrick Barrett Steve to realize what matters in the lettersallgtor.org long run. __ttrs____gtr__r Hint: It's not breasts or big muscles. Until he manages to do that, all of his efforts will only put off the inevitable. There will come a point for Steve, as for the women in this study, when all of science's artificial efforts will not be able to protect them from their own imperfections, and they will have to tackle them head-on. I'm not saying everyone who gets breast implants is running away from something. But touting the "genuine psychological improvements" that follow from getting breast implants is dangerous. Breast implants cannot improve any psychological problem because they do not address any psychological issue. The rise in self-esteem, like the improved appearance due to implants, is temporary and superficial. It would be great if you could just take a pill or have some surgery and then feel better about yourself. But it has never worked before, and it will never work. At best, these measures address the physical or chemical symptoms of internal emotional problems. They can buy time, but the root of the problem will demand attention sooner or later. The longer you wait to address the real problem, the more deeply developed and insurmountable it will seem. So, if you're looking for psychological improvement, it might be better to get some things off your chest rather than adding things to it. Patrick Barrett is a junior majoring in Russian.

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor. Denying Bush degree shows immaturity As an alumnus, I feel what the Faculty Senate did regarding the denial of former Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary degree was an absolute disgrace. It embarrassed the university, its students and its alumni to a degree I had not thought possible. Was anything gained by denying the president's brother an honorary degree? Boy, they sure showed him. This is a new low in Florida academics and yet another example of the tawdriness and petty politics that continue to diminish the already-faltering image the academic community holds in the public's eye. I hope UF President Bemie Machen will take it upon himself to address this issue with the Senate in a public forum and issue a personal and public apology to Mr. Bush.

Saying that networking is the only reason to join a Greek organization is shortsighted. People join for more than just adding to their resume. The whole process gets you involved in the school, teaches you how to interact in such a large university and encourages you to do so by more than just searching through dozens of Facebook groups and joining one.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 SG officials lobby representatives in Washington Courtesy of Josh Weiss UF Student Senate President Josh Weiss shakes hands with Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama earlier this month in Washington, D.C. Weiss and other Student Government representatives traveled to meet with lawmakers about student issues. By ERIN EHRLICH Alligator Writer For some Student Government officials, most of Spring Break was spent lobbying congressmen and attending conferences instead of relaxing at the beach. During the break, SG Lobby Coordinator Jason Lutin and Student Body Vice President Arturo Arrmand traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with congressmen about a House bill that would reduce the federal student loan interest rate from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent. Lutin said SG officials' trips to Washington and Tallahassee show lawmakers that students care about certain issues "You can do it over the phone, but it's a lot harder to say, 'No,' to someone in person," he said. He said visiting and making small talk with representatives builds relationships. U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, one of 11 UF alumni in Congress, has been a big part of getting UF's voice heard, he said. Lutin keeps in contact with Schultz, and she tells him about progression on issues he's lobbying for. Lutin said effective lobbyists, especially student lobbyists, need to make those kinds of trips so they can get to know representatives, senators and their staffs. "It goes a long way with them," he said. "To go Student personally Government means more than money and gifts, and I love putting UF on the map." Student Body President John Boyles and Senate President Josh Weiss also spent a few days in Washington during the break. .The two attended a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobby group. Boyles and Weiss were urged by conunittee representatives and the UF Jewish Student Union to represent UF at the conference, and their trip was sponsored by the committee. Weiss, who met Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Mel Martinez at a meet-and-greet with politicians after the conference, said the conference boasted speeches and anecdotes from political leaders of both parties. He said the most surprising thing was seeing both Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Dick Cheney supporting the U.S.-Israel relationship. Lutin, who was in the capital to lobby for the student loan bill, said although the bill passed' in the House of Representatives in January, it has been stagnant since then and the Senate hasn't considered it yet. "It's basically got to be forcefed into the Senate, which is not an easy task," Lutin said. The bill would be effective immediately if passed by the Senate, he said. SG paid $1,870.34 for Lutin and Armand to make the trip, according to SG financial records. GENERAL NUTRITION CENTERS S25% OFF any one GNC Product~ Cannot be combined. Need coup~on.

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 9 ON CAMPUS Cartoonist draws line between witty and racist comics By BRITTANY DAVIS Alligator Writer bdavis@alligator.org Keith Knight was as witty as his cartoons Friday night when he talked to roughly 30 people about race, terrorism and the Bush administration. The syndicated cartoonist, who draws for ESPN and Mad magazines, said his own experiences with family, friends and society inspire his work. "I like to take on issues -not necessarily in a direct way, but in an indirect way," he said. On an overhead projector, Knight showed a cartoon inspired by a conversation he had with a friend while in college. The friend's uncle didn't like black people because a black person had once robbed him. "I guess nobody white had ever done anything bad to him," Knight said, drawing hearty laughter from the audience. Knight also ragged on newspapers, laughing as he recalled the San Francisco Examiner refusing to run one of his cartoons because it featured a black man selling cocaine. He said the editor of the paper told him readers might think the cartoon was racist. "They're afraid of offending anybody. It's completely outrageous," he said. Knight encountered a similar problem when trying to sell racial cartoons shortly after the Muhammad cartoons caused riots and controversy around the world in September 2005. "Does everyone understand what this is? It's not about being hateful against black people, it's being critical about society," he said. But not all cartoons about race are acceptable, Knight said. He addressed the Andy Marlette cartoon that ran in the Alligator in September 2005, Knight causing rallies and protests from black students and professors. The cartoon featured Kanye West holding a life-sized joker card that read "race card" in front of Condoleezza Rice. Rice crossed her arms in disgust and said, "N****, please." Knight said the cartoon was unacceptable and was created only to stir controversy and hurt feelings. "When I looked at Marlette's piece and see him using the 'N' word as a cartoonist .he could have easily substituted another word for that," Knight said. Knight added that the cartoon's punch line is invalid because Rice's presence in the Bush administration doesn't mean that Bush cares about black people. "Condoleezza doesn't care about black people either, so the point is completely lost," he said. A woman from the audience raised her hand and said Knight's cartoons are intelligent commentary on society, while Marlette's cartoon was purely destructive. Knight added that whites don't understand what it's like to be a minority in American society. "White people go through life here in this country without ever having to deal with black people or Asians or any other race," he said. "But that's not the case with everybody else. We always have to deal with white folks." After the speech, Jimmy Williams, a local artist, said he respects Knight for his talent and persistence. "He was able to overcome the hardships that black artists and entrepreneurs go through," he said. "I admire his talent. There are not many black artists who are making it big," Williams-said. The event was sponsored by OASIS, a UF program that aids with recruitment and retention of minorities. It cost $2,000, in addition to airfare and other expenses. City will decide on one-stop homeless center location THEY ARE MAKING A DECISION BETWEEN SIX SPOTS. By DREW HARWELL Alligator Staff Writer dharwell@alligator.org The search for the site of a one-stop homeless center that will feature $1.4 million a year in aid and services may end Monday, when Gainesville city commissioners are expected to select their favorite from a list of six locations. The two sites most favored by city staff are a leased facility at 3335 N. Main Terrace and city-owned land north of 39th Avenue on Waldo Road, according to a city comnmission agenda. The. one-stop center, which will contain beds, showers, laundry facilities, child care and other services, is the primary goal of the city and county's 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness. The center, which will be named the GRACE Marketplace, has been discussed since the plan was approved in December 2005. Roughly $100,000 is set aside for the costs of building renovation and site development, and about $67,000 will Gainesvile City be available per year for COlIlISSIOn the lease or purchase of the facility, according to the agenda. The two most popular sites for city officials were chosen from a list of 125 potential spots. Sites were compared using several criteria, inciuding space, costs, possibilities of renovation and "appropriate buffers to protect existing neighborhoods." The proposed site on N. Main Terrace, which currently holds a warehouse, is about one square acre. The Waldo Road site, a tree farm located less than 500 yards away from an RTS bus stop, is about 13 acres. Both locations are more than 3 miles from the Downtown Community Plaza, where many of Gainesville's homeless spend their time. IF NOT NOW, WHEN? IF NOT US, WHO?

10, ALLIGATOR S MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 Students try food from io around world at festival Nicole Safker / Alligator UF freshman Felicia Blocker serves strawberry shortcake to freshman Serena Haffner at the America table during the International Food Festival. THE FOOD AT WEAVER HALL WAS EATEN IN 45 MINUTES. By AMRA ZEJNELI Alligator Contributing Writer International music, foreign languages, UFI students and food from all over the world \were part of the International Food Festival held at Weaver Hall's beach on campus Sunday evening. About 150 students had a chance to taste food from Turkey, Greece, Australia, France, Norway, Japan, China, Taiwan and the Dominican Republic. The smorgasboard disappeared in about 45 minutes. The free festival was organized by the resident assistants of Weaver Hall and open to Weaver -Hall students and students living in the Tolbert area. Funding for the event, which cost about $500, came from donations the UF Housing Office made at the beginning of the school year. The money went toward buying the ingredients. Weaver Hall's international residents cooked all the dishes themselves. Erol Kavountzis, a UF graduate student and the graduate hall director, said a lot of money was spent on meat and French cheese. Crepes, a French type of pancake, are popular throughout Europe, and they were just as popular at the festival: They were gone in half an hour. Hassatou Ba and Isabel Raquin, exchange students from France, spent most of Sunday preparing for the festival by making 40 crepes. "Crepes are like pancakes, but they taste better," Ba said. "Crepes are bigger, thinner, and you eat them with sugar, chocolate cream, honey or jam. It's a very traditional dessert back home." They also served French cheeses, camembert and brie, with bread. Susanne Gabrielsen, an international student from Norway, was the student with the most food varieties. She prepared ginger and cardamom beef with mashed potatoes, small bread pieces with ham and potatoes on top, a chocolate cake and what she said is Norway's most traditional dish, sour-cream porridge. She said she prepared the porridge last semester, too, and people seemed to like it. Gabrielsen said she learned how to cook while she was in school. In Norway, she said, everyone has to take a cooking class for a On year. CaNlpUS The festival also featured mixed salads, rice balls with tuna and mayonnaise, dumplings, Thai green curry chicken prepared with coconut milk and eggplant, and pavlova, a traditional Australian dessert with a meringue crust and topped with whipped cream, strawberries and kiwi. Nicole Harris, a UF sophomore, attended the event this year and last year. "I like it because it shows you different cultures and gives a taste of food from different regions," Harris said. "They always bring different people, so it's never the same typical thing over and over again." Weaver Hall has 176 residents, half of whom are international students. The majority of students come from China, Japan and Australia. Kavountzis said the purpose of the festival is to give international students the chance to show where they are from and to give American students the chance to interact with them. Vilmarie Estrella, a UF senior and resident assistant in Weaver Hall, said this year's festival was just as successful as it has been in the past. "A lot of residents came and tried food from all around the world," Estrella said, "and that just helps open up their minds and realize all the diversity we have on this campus."

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 11 Families share in players' emotions GATORS, from page 1 Noah, UF's resident Sigmund Freud, spoke in metaphors to explain this journey. Last season -Noah informed you -the Gators thrived off the motto P.H.D. Poor. Hungry. Driven. This season -Noah reminded you -UF has strained to lay off the cholesterol accompanied with a potentially bloated, pompous defending national champion. "We have to maintain that P.H.D., but it's harder because there's all these filet mignons and salamis and good food everywhere," Noah said. "So we need to be more focused and concentrated than ever." Abiding by the Atkins diet, UF feasted on roast Duck, which always tastes better Gator-done. The 25,947 spectators were a raucous bunch. Armed with plastic quackers and enough thunder green and lightning yellow to rally the faithful and simultaneously send opposing fans into seizures, Oregon's fans denounced UF and the refereeing when it favored the Gators. "The Gator Boys are hot; I'm not going to lie. But at the same time we could get hotter -that's what we're shooting for." Joakim Noah UF forward The crowd could have been subdivided into one part Gators, two parts Ducks and 10 parts everyone else who served like Johnnie on the Spot for Ducks fans. "When you're the No. 1 seed, everyone wants a piece of you," Noah said. "I remember watching the Xavier-Ohio State game and no one wanted Ohio State to win. It's part of this culture. Everyone wants to hype you up only to tear you down. When you shine, you got haters. Keep on hating. It fuels us." Before the game, Tito, Al's father, addressed a throng of Gators fans at his hotel. He instructed them to follow his cheer during the game whose outcome he never doubted. "We knew they were going to make it to the Final Four," he said. Said Rodhe, Noah's mother, "All the families are so united. It's special. It's lovely. It's caring." Said Yelena, her 20-year-old daughter, "It's just amazing. Jo was dreaming of this stuff when he was 8 but I never thought it would get this far." Soon, players approached family. Green hugged Sidney, who said he nearly had a heart attack while his son missed some late free throws. As he smiled at his son, Sidney wiped away tears. "He was just happy for us," Brewer said.

"One thing I've seen .is the limited funding for higher education in the state that has been diverted to institutes located closer to South Florida," Kathy Price, a law professor and senator, said at UF the meeting. AdInunstration Joe Little, a UF law professor and senator, wrote in a letter to Machen that he was disappointed in comments Machen made about the Senate's decision. "You undercut your ability to lead when you deride the academic decisions of your-colleagues," Little wrote. "Disagreement is acceptable; disrespect is not." He also wrote, "As UF president, you had the right to debate and vote on the proposal, but you did neither." In an interview Sunday, Little said he thought there was political motive behind the nomination. "I don't think it was fully a 'Gee whiz, this person really deserves to be recognized for academic contributions or contributions to the university's decision," Little said.

12, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 MINORITY REPORT Stagnant numbers of black faculty worry officials DIVERSITY, from page 1 make the university and Gainesville their home. It's a struggle for the university's reputation. And for some, it's a struggle to help the university reach it's full potential. THE NUMBERS TELL THE STORY The growth of black faculty at UF stalled and reached a plateau between 1988 and 2005. In that 17-year period, the population of full-time black faculty grew from 56 to 86, according to statistics from the Office of the Provost/Academic Affairs. In 2005, full-time black faculty made up 2.9 percent of the total university faculty The number of black faculty showed a mix of sporadic growth and intermittent decline in the mid-80s. During the same period, the number of fulltime Hispanic faculty increased from 35 to 107 (3.62 percent of the full-time ranked staff). From 1998 to 2006, on the other hand, the number of white tenured faculty decreased from 1,800 to 1,682. Of the 1,930 tenured full-time faculty employed at the university this fall, 50 were black, 53 were Hispanic, 142 were Asian and 1,682 were white, according the Office of Institutional Planning and Research. The university also employed 33 tenureeaming black faculty and 481 white tenureearning faculty. Tenure-earning faculty are professors who are trying to get a permanent appointment, such as assistant professors. Nontenure-earning professors include visiting professors and lecturers. Of the 563nontenure-earningprofessors, 411 were white, 13 were black, 34 were Hispanic, and 104 were Asian or Asian American. In all categories, men outnumbered women. THE NUM BERS ARE TROUBLING President Bernie Machen said the low numbers of black faculty are troubling. "Why is it a problem? Because great universities desire diversity," he said. Machen said the faculty population should at least be as diverse as the student body. "At a minimum, we would like our faculty to be as diverse as our student body," Machen said. "In an ideal world, I'd like our student body to be as diverse as our state." Of the 36,163 undergraduates enrolled at the university last fall, 23,809 were white, 4,693 were Hispanic, 3,456 were black and 2,625 were Asian American, according to the Office of Institutional Planning and Research. Machen said he does not have an official plan to improve recruitment of black faculty but has asked college deans to search for diverse pools of candidates. He has also asked faculty to look into the issue. Anthony Greene, president of the Association of Black Faculty and Staff, said Machen has not worked hard enough. He said the stagnation in recruitment is a more than decade-old problem, but Machen has not sufficiently acted on the issue. Greene said Machen emphasized improving diversity when he came to university but has not acted on his ideas. THE NUMBERS COULD BE IMPROVED Debra Walker King, associate provost of faculty development, said the number of minority faculty at UF could be improved. Competition between UF and other schools makes recruitment of black faculty more difficult, she said. King said the university needs to be more aggressive in its recruiting measures. The university can attract black faculty by maintaining a good relationship with historically black colleges and universities and connecting to networks of black scholars, she said. It can also lure more minorities to its staff by showing they have a better chance at advancing within the university than they have at other workplaces. ( 6 "AT A MINIMUM, WE WOULD LIK FACULTY TO BE AS DIVERSE A STUDENT BODY. IN AN IDEAL V I'D LIKE OUR STUDENT BODY TO DIVERSE AS OUR STATE." BERNIE MACHEN, UF PRESIDE Machen said university departments and colleges have cited various reasons for not hiring more minority faculty Explanations from officials ranged from lack of money to lack of candidates or applicants, Machen said. Evans said the idea that there's a lack of black faculty "is a load of crap." She said departments are not looking for black faculty in the right places. She said officials could search for faculty through organizations that cater specifically to black scholars, such as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. She said there are other organizations like this where officials can contact black faculty in most disciplines. Kenneth Nunn, a professor and former associate dean at the Levin College of Law, said the university and his own college need to show a sincere desire to recruit black faculty. Instead of waiting for black faculty to apply at Stephanie Evans, center, along with protestors Sharon Burney, left and Angelique Nixon, right, participate in a demonstration held March 2 in support of the African American Studies Program. the university, Nunn said departments should seek out more candidates who excel in their iields. Interviews should resemble less of an inte-rogation" and -more of a negotiation be; we r the potential faculty member and the ,,iployer, said Nunn, who resigned as associate dean in 2000 when he felt officials in the college were derailing the recruitment of black faculty. "We need to wine and dine them," he said. College deans need to be held accountable if they do not work hard enough to diversify their staff, Nunn said. He said the Levin College of Law has improved recruitment and retention of :E OUR minority faculty in the past few OUR years, but the college and university can still do better. 'ORLD, But Berta Esperanza BE AS Hemandez-Truyol, who started teaching at the law school in 1999 and intermittently sat on the hiring committee since 2000, NT said the school now has "a strong commitment to diversity." She said she has always looked for the most qualified candidates -regardless of race. She also said the issue of diversity extends beyond race to issues like gender and academic discipline. "Yes, someone might see me as a role model because I'm Hispanic," she explained. "But they might also see me as a mentor because I have experience with international law and human rights." OFFICIALS FIGHT FOR FACULTY DIVERSITY Administrators have taken steps to nake the university more diverse, said King, the associate provost of faculty development. King's office recently created a recruitment toolkit with instructions on how to diversify staff. The office created an online list where staff can network by listing their race and contact information. The Office of the Provost also began a Diversity Speakers series with author Derald Wing Sue, invited for the inaugural event. King said the percentage of minority faculty at UF should better reflect the number of qualified candidates available within specific fields -like biology. For instance, if 3 percent of national experts specializing in microbiology are black; the percentage of black microbiology faculty at the university should reflect that number. 6 Departments should also widen their searches and start with the "iT most diverse candidate pools they SAKE can find. She said schools should look for intellectual diversity as well as cultural diversity when hiring. Officials should keep in mind that A&I the more diverse a department is, the better and more fulfilling an education a student will receive. "It's not just diversity for the sake of diversity" King said. "It's diversity for the sake of excellence." Greene said black faculty need to be educated about the resources available to them at the university. His organization, the Association of Black Faculty and Staff, sends an e-mail to a listserv when new faculty start at UF and plan social events for black faculty to network with each other. UF'S LOCATION MIGHT DISCOURAGE PROFESSORS Potential black faculty can be discouraged

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 0 ALLIGATOR, 13 Alligator File Photo ~ormer law professor Kenneth Nunn, who recently resigned from the law school, announcas a seven-point agenda for diversity Oct. 5, 2000, at the Frederic G. Levin College of Law -\uditorium. Nunn resigned from associate provost of the Levin College of Law in 2000 >ecause he felt officials were blocking the recruitment of black faculty. y Gainesville's rural location, Greene said. andidates from cities might see Gainesville is part of the stereotypically rural, white-domiiated South, he said. There are gathering places -like the nstitute of Black Culture -and organizations -such as the Gainesville chapter of the National sociation for the Advancement of Colored 'eople -for blacks in Gainesville, but they're iot always immediately noticeable, Greene said. [he institute, for example, can only host a limited ount of guests. Nunn said black faculty also have trouble inding jobs for their spouses or partners in iainesville. He said the university should help acuity connect with employers in the city. Machen said Gainesville is a socio-ecoon-ically, and consequentially racially divided ity. The city is separated into East and West 3ainesville, East Gainesville being predomiiately black. :ACULTY, STUDENTS PERCEIVE UF AS UNWELCOMING Among some minority faculty and students, JF is perceived as being unwelcoming toward ninorities. Evans said UF and other Florida universities vere historically slow to desegregate, which heated a perceived legacy of difficult access to 'ducation. NOT JUST DIVERSITY FOR THE OF DIVERSITY. mTS DIVERSITY FOR THE SAKE OF EXCELLENCE." DEBRA WALKER KING CIATE PROVOST OF FACULTY DEVELOPMENT UF also has a reputation as a party school dominated by white Greek organizations. All past university presidents have been white nd male. Most college deans are white, though he two most recent deans hired are black. Machen said the perception that the univerity is unwelcoming toward minorities extends D students. "I have talked to African-American students hose friends, and even their parents, tell them Don't go there,"' Machen said. Evans said the university could show it istitutionalizes and supports diversity by sup,orting ethnic studies programs, such as African unerican, Asian-American and American Indian tudies. She said minority faculty might look to ensure UF supports these programs before applying for a job. Supporting ethnic studies shows that a university is willing and prepared to talk about diversity. "Good campuses talk about race," she said. UF HAS PROBLEMS WITH BLACK FACULTY RETENTION The university needs to improve the retention of black faculty, especially nontenured professors, Greene said. Black faculty have complained of feeling like they get heavier work and teaching loads than their colleagues, he said. They also feel like they're asked to represent their race or gender on department committees. Sometimes, black faculty encounter subtle or unintentional mistreatment in their departments, he said. A colleague or superior could call a black faculty member "articulate" or act surprised that the faculty member submitted an exceptional piece of work, he added. Comments like these can imply that the person had lower expectations of the black faculty and could be seen as offensive, even if they're not always intended as insults, Greene said. Greene said he faced this type of attitude while trying to earn tenure. When Greene was an assistant professor at UF's Department of Clinical and Health Psychology in 1994, the then-chairman of his department told him his published articles on anger and personality traits among domestic violence offenders were "superficial." "I was deeply offended, especially as he did not offer further explanation or elaboration," Greene said. He said the chair's criticism pushed him to resign from the department. Word of perceived mistreatment can reach potential black faculty at other schools and discourage them from applying at UF, Greene said. OLD HABITS ARE DIFFICULTTO CHANGE Nunn said changing department attitudes toward minority faculty is an uphill battle requiring a culture change in some departments. "When a black faculty member comes here, it's almost with the expectation of that type of attitude," Nunn said. Students can also take part in the discrimination, Evans said. She said students are more likely to challenge her because she is a young black woman. On one occasion, a white student who cheated in one of Evans' classes accused her favoring black students. Evans brought the case to the Dean of Students Office, which supported her attempts to defend herself from the accusation. Machen said he did not think black faculty are intentionally.mistreated within their own departments, but the perception that discrimination occurs is troubling. The two times he investigated claims that a faculty member was denied tenure because of discrimination, Machen found no evidence of racism. He said the university is generally an "enlightened" and accepting community. "The idea that I don't enjoy being around faculty that's different than me is antithetical to the university environment," Machen said. NUMBERS OF HISPANICS INCREASE BUT ARE STILL LOW While the growth of black faculty has slowed, Machen said the ranks of Hispanic and Asian faculty have grown steadily in recent years -though they are still smaller than they should be. As the first minority hired and tenured by the sociology department, Hernan Vera said he was lonely when he arrived at the school in the mid-1970s. He said racism and ignorance within departments and the administration keeps the university's minority faculty population low. "After working here for 33 years, a large part of my colleagues still don't know how to pronounce my name," Vera said. Hemandez-Truyol, the law professor, said she sat on former provost David Colburn's committee on diversity in 2002 and was surprised to learn that she was one of only a few Latina professors at the time. Hernandez-Truyol said the university can reach out to more Hispanic faculty by extending searches to the West Coast and universities in Central and South America and the Caribbean. ASIAN AMERICAN FACULTY NEEDS MORE SUPPORT Malini Schueller, an English professor and director of the Asian-American studies certificate, said she was the department's lone Asian professor for many years. Schueller, who started at UF in 1988, said the university must show support of Asian American programs and an active Asian American student population to attract more Asian American faculty. She said an Asian-American professor in the counseling department told her he chose to come to UF over a school in Maryland because he was impressed with students who came to his job interview. More Asian-American faculty will be drawn to the university if they see Asian American professors thriving at the university. And an Asian American studies minor or major could also draw more instructoas interested in the subject to the university, Schueller said. Schueller added that the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has not supported the AsianAmerican studies program, which detracts faculty from applying to U. "We're building this Asian-American certificate and trying to expand to a minor out of thin air," Schueller said. STUDENTS ARE THE KEY Tamara Cohen, director of Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, said the university needs to diversify faculty to prepare students for an increasingly global world. Depending on their careers, many students willbe entering workplaces where their co-workers come from different backgrounds and are different races. She said the university needs to show students that the faculty is diverse and minorities are role models and not just relegated to the roles of secretaries. Billy Holcombe, who is president of the Black Student Union and a graduate student, said black faculty at the university have been able to offer him unique, "real-world" experience. Evans said that the recruitment of minority students is as important as that of minority faculty. "If you want to have a quality school, you have to have a diverse population. Or yort will be left in the dust," she said. OUTNUMBERED Minority faculty at UF Faculty statistics between 1988 and 2005 Full-time black faculty at the university increased from 56 to 86. Full-time Hispanic faculty increased from 35 to 107. White tenured faculty decreased from 1,800 to 1,682. Faculty Statistics Fall 2006 Of the 1,930 full-time tenured faculty* 50 were black 53 were Hispanic 142 were Asian or Asian American 1,382 were white Of the 690 tenure-earning faculty* U 33 were black 0 42 were Hispanic 133 were Asian or Asian American 481 were white Of the 563 non-tenure earning professors* 113 were black 34 were Hispanic 104 were Asian or Asian American 411 were white in all categories, men outnumbered women. *Note: Full-time tenured faculty are professors who have a permanent appointment. Tenure-earning are professors who are trying to get a permanent appointment, such as assistant professors. Non-tenure earning professors include visiting professors and lecturers.

Sports MONDAY, MARCH 26,2007 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Humphrey rips 3-point record, net THE SENIOR HIT SEVEN THREES. By JENNA MARINA Alligator Staff Writer jmarina@aligator.org ST. LOUIS -Lee Humphrey broke the record and then broke the net. Humphrey became UF's career leader for 3-pointers Sunday afternoon when he sank one 10 minutes into the first half during the top-seeded Gators' 85-77 victory against third-seeded Oregon. One 3-pointer later, the guard caused a 10-minute delay when he swished a three which caused one of the netting's loops to snap from the rim. "That's when I was like, 'He's on fire,"' forward Corey Brewer said. "It was like in the (video game) NBA Jam when the nets just catch fire." Half of the delay was spent looking for a ladder to fix the nets, and during halftime, both nets were switched out with new ones. "I've never seen anybody in my life literally break the nets when he Men's shoots," senior Chris Richard said. "Once he hit that shot I think it kind Basketball of gave us a boost and helped us out a lot." Humphrey's seven 3-pointers 15 tied a career high, and the guard has now converted 280 shots from behind the arc for his career. "It's a pretty cool accomplishment," Humphrey said of his record. "I mean, there's been a lot of great players at Florida and to hold that record is pretty cool." Humphrey led the Gators with 23 points during the hard-fought game. With the win, UF advances to the Final Four for the second year in a row and the fourth time in school history. Oregon made four more shots than UF (27 to 23), dished out three more assists (13 to 10), committed five fewer turnovers (13 to 18) and amassed three more steals (eight to five). However, the Gators sank 13 more free throws and hit three more 3-pointers than the Ducks to seal the T e lr game.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL Machen: Donovan should consider UK By NICK ZACCARDI Alligator Staff Writer nzaccardi@alligator.org ST. LOUIS -UF President' Benies Machen wants Billy Donovan to talk to Kentucky. But he's not going to let Donovan get away. "He owes it to himself to look at the Kentucky job if they offer him the job," Machen said. "But we're not going to lose Billy Donovan to anybody. He's the best coach in America. He's going to be a Gator for as long as he coaches." Machen, Donovan and Athletics Director Jeremy Foley have discussed extending the coach's contract for the Donovan past year. Donovan, in his 11th season with the Gators, has two years left on his current agreement which pays $1.7 million per year. UF's Board of Trustees met Thursday and Friday and a revamped deal could result from the talks. -Machen, said he has not heard from Kentucky requesting to speak with Donovan. Donovan said Sunday that he has not answered his cell phone while in St. Louis. "Kentucky, if that's who they want, they'll make him an incredible offer," Machen said. "We have ways of making our own offers, and we've got the Florida SEE NOTES, PAGE 23 Billy D would be foolish to take 'Cats job ST LOUIS WAhyWhy in the world? Why in the world would Billy Donovan bat an eyelash at Kentucky's coaching vacancy? Gator Nation is still tipsy off Lee Humphrey and buzzed off Taurean Green and high off a Final Four return. But St. Louis has buried the story of Donovan's veiled semantics about the Kentucky job. It doesn't take an instruction manual to decipher his remarks about the Wildcats the other day. .All I'm going to say is, that has nothing to do with me," Louis Donovan said. Anastasis "It has everyLouis in the Bullpen thing to do with lanastasis@alligator.org Kentucky. I'm not in control of any of their decision-making process. I cannot control different things that are out there. It's not my place to say anything or do anything, because that is someone else's decision." Nothing to do with Donovan? Not in control of the decision-making process? Not his place to say anything? Last week, Tubby Smith left Kentucky to coach Minnesota. This is grounds for another column that would debate, among other things, who would win a fight between a rabies-infested Gopher and a spayed Wildcat. Anyhow, Donovan once served as an assistant at Kentucky. He speaks of the place as if Jesus once visited Rupp Arena and performed the miracle of the corn breads and fried chickens for a famished home crowd. But he has been in Gainesville since 1996. And unless you've been living under Roseanne's chin, you also know he has orchestrated a bazillion wins during that span So the question becomes: Is Donovan interested or isn't he?

22, ALLIGATORN MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 UF SOFTBALL Gators demolish Bulldogs, stretch win streak to 7 ,By KARL HYPPOLITE Alligator Writer The Gators are on a roll. Rolling so fast they left tread marks on No. 18 Georgia. Sunday's 5-1 win completed a three-game home sweep of the Bulldogs, extending the UF softball team's winning streak to seven. The Gators (27-14, 5-6 Southeastern Conference) started the series with a 5-2 win Saturday afternoon. Their bats stayed alive in the second game as UF throttled Georgia in a 14-0 rout. Just one week ago, UF was reeling after a sweep by LSU. The team's ability to score was questioned and pitcher Stacey Stevens was coming off the worst stretch of her season. Now, the Gators -averaging 6.9 runs per game during their win streak -are absolutely giddy. Stevens has allowed just three hits in her last two starts and has 17 strikeouts in her last three starts. "The midweek games were fun," Stevens said. "But everything we did was in preparation for Georgia I always have confidence, and I go up there knowing I can get a hit." Kim Walleszonia UF second baseman and it's fun taking three games from them. I "That's something that's never been done in my four years here -and I've never beaten them in the circle before -so it's a great feeling." To Stevens, getting run support was the key, and she got plenty in Saturday's blowout. She struck out four in five innings. Every starter got a hit and four players scored at least two runs in the game. Right fielder Mary Ratliff, who had never hit a home run before Thursday, hit two. UF coach Tim Walton has a simple explanation for all the offensive firepower the Gators unleashed: "Balls are finally falling for a couple kids," Walton. said. "And you are starting to feel a little confident -that really helps. With that going it really helps to get a base hit instead of getting out. Even if you hit the ball hard and get a little blooper, that little blooper might get things going." Second baseman Kim Waleszonia was full of confidence this weekend. The sophomore led the offensive -charge with seven hits, six runs batted in and scored five runs. "It's all about maintaining confidence," Waleszonia said. "I always have confidence, and I go up there knowing I can get a hit." UF comes from behind twice to sweep Auburn series 0 THE GATORS ARE TIED FOR FIRST IN THE SEC. By MIKE MCCALL Alligator Writer The UF baseball team got some spring cleaning done during the weekend, sweeping Auburn to move into a tie for first place in the Southeastern Conference. The Gators (14-13, 4-2 SEC) earned their first sweep of an SEC opponent since 2005. "It's huge for this ballclub," first baseman Matt LaPorta said. "We talked about it after Saturday's game that we had to leave this weekend 4-2 -not 3-3 -in the SEC. The Gators' bullpen allowed 16 runs in last weekend's conference opener versus Mississippi State, but held the Tigers (18-9, 0-6 SEC) to just six runs in 16 innings. "It was great the way they came in and competed," LaPorta said. "I love watching our guys come in from the bullpen and just shut it down and get this ballclub a win. The fire they had in their eyes out there was just awesome." After come-from-behind wins Friday and Saturday, UF completed the sweep with an easy 10-3 victory Sunday, thanks to two home runs from LaPorta. The senior set the tone early with a tworun blast in the first, and added a solo shot in the eighth for his fifth-career multi-home run game. He finished 4 for 4 with four RBI and three runs. On Saturday, the Gators trailed 6-5 in the seventh before an RBI single by sophomore Cody Neer tied it up. Freshman Matt den Dekker then delivered a two-RBI single with the bases loaded to give the Gators a lead that they wouldn't relinquish, as they added four more runs in the inning. Friday's tilt provided a more dramatic finish, where a freshman again delivered the blow. With two outs in the 10th inning of a 7-7 tie, freshman Cole Figueroa slapped an RBI single to give the Gators an 8-7 lead. Sophomore Patrick Keating then retired the Aubum batters in order to eam the win. The Gators are now above .500 and have moved from the bottom to the top of the conference. They will host Bethune-Cookman on Tuesday before traveling to Georgia next weekend. "It's just the second weekend. We can't get complacent," LaPorta said. "We need to keep working hard and battling to get better every day and every weekend." kouN LOOKS BETTERt uE STUDENT BODy You had to be in Glendate to get these one-of-a-kind T-shirts commemorating the Florida Gators' 2006 BCS National Championship -until now. sunsportstv.com JA A,.

MONDAY, MARCH 26, 2007 E ALLIGATOR, 23 UF FOOTBALL Backup QB Waggener breaks foot during practice By BRYAN JONES Alligator Staff Writer bjones@alIigator.org Quarterback Bryan Waggener broke his left foot in practice Wednesday and will likely be out for the remainder of spring practice, UF coach Urban Meyer said Friday. A junior college transfer, Waggener was competing with true freshman Cameron Newton for the backup job behind Tim Tebow. "Doggone it, that's a tough deal," Meyer said. "A tough deal for us and even tougher for him, because Editor's note: Beginning with the SEC season, the alligatorSports staff wili vote on the top three UF basketball performances of the week each Monday. The ,No., 1 "player will receive points, No. 2 player 3 points and No'o. 3 player 1 point. At the end of the season, the player with the most combined points will earn the title of alligatorSports Player of the Year. he's a competitor, and he was doing pretty good." Considering Tebow's reckless style of play, the Gators need all the depth they can get at the position. "The positive is that Cam Newton now is going to get 64,000 reps," Meyer said. "And he needs every one of those." While Waggener was only able to practice one day, he was already displaying the poise the coaching staff was expecting from him, UF offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dan Mullen said. "He did right what we were ex"We're a mess right now backthere." Urban Meyer UF football coach pecting (Wednesday)," Mullen said. "He walked into his first practice at a college level, stepped into the huddle, commanded respect, was able to call the play, knew what was going on and managed the offense." Meanwhile, the 6-foot-5, 242pound Newton is experiencing growing pains. "In high school they're seeing two, three or four different defenses in a whole entire game," Mullen said. "He saw six different blitzes in his first six plays out here. He's speaking a whole new language and learning' a whole new system at a much faster speed." With Waggener's injury, the Gators will go through spring practice with only two scholarship quarterbacks for the second straight season. Waggener should be back in the fall, when touted freshman John Brantley will join the team. Brian Steele and Kim Wilmath / Alligator Staff Richard: UF more determined than ever to succeed HOOPS, from page 21 champion, you have to come at them and it's got to be a battle there, and you wish you could have battled a little more, few less fouls and everything," Oregon coach Ernie Kent said. UF benefited from its size advantage, grabbing 15 more rebounds than Oregon. Outside of 6-foot-9 Maarty Leunen, UF's frontcourt had at least 4 inches on every Ducks player. When the All-Regional team was about to be announced, many of the Gators pointed at Humphrey, expecting the sharpshooter to earn MVP. When point guard Taurean Green's name was called instead, Humphrey, who did earn a spot on the team, pointed at the junior. Green led the Gators against Butler with 17 points and hit another 21 points Green against Oregon. The players always strived for repeat success, but Richard said getting to Atlanta is harder than it looks. "I don't think anybody understands because everyone expected us to do it," Richard said. "Last year was great because it was our first time ever doing it. Now I think we want it even more because we have a lot to prove. "Plus we have a lot of people hoping we don't do it." As Brewer approached the free-throw line with 1.4 seconds left, Donovan walked the length of the bench, high-fiving and saying "Final Four" to each individual. "I'm just so blessed to have done this at such a young age, to have done this with these kids," Donovan said. Porter struggles against Gators after record-breaking Sweet 16 NOTES, down to. NOEfrom page 21 fans. We want what's best for Billy, and we think that's the University of Florida." As the team cut down the nets, Gators fans chanted, "We've got deeper pockets" toward Donovan. That might be what it comes PORTER GOES COLD: Oregon guard Tajuan Porter couldn't live up to his own hype Sunday. He scored 10 points and missed his first ten shots after torching UNLV for 33 points in the Sweet 16 with an NCAA regional record eight 3-pointers. Porter, a 5-foot-6 freshman, attributed his poor performance to too much excitement. "I was just a little too hyped," he said. He committed four turnovers, and scored just 4 points, all on free throws, in the first 39 minutes. Porter's impressive showing against UNLV made him a media darling on Saturday's off-day. It also made Donovan take notice. "You look at the shots Porter made against UNLV, they were the same exact shots he missed against us," Donovan said. "He's so fast and quick you're not going to prevent him from getting it off." SECONDARY CONCERNS: Sophomore cornerback Markihe Anderson injured his back Friday, while sophomore cornerback Jacques Rickerson has still not fully recovered from arthroscopic knee surgery he underwent last month. Meyer said Anderson's status is unknown. Anderson and Rickerson are two of the leading canc dates to replace both starting corners from last season's squad. The Gators are also searching for a new free safety and nickel corner. "We're a mess right now back there," Meyer said. BULLPEN, from page 21 If not, he would have quelled the rumors with a statement like: "I see palm trees on my way to work. I am a multimillionaire. My kids mingle with those of Urban Meyer, whose football team should rule the college landscape for years. Oh, and did I mention that I am the greatest hoops coach to ever place my royal heels in Gainesville? I could lose 30 games next season and you would still see my lovable face on commercials for the Village Jeweler. So basically, Kentucky smells funkier than Ashley Judd in a manure wrestling contest. Thanks, but no thanks." Oftentimes the strongest words are those never said. Instead of denying interest in the Kentucky opening, Donovan has divulged a public relations statement that makes his interest obviously apprent. If not, he is using Kentucky as a bargaining chip. Donovan's seven-year contract of $1.7 million annually expires in two years. UF athletics director Jeremy Foley could have hammered out an extension by now but hasn't. Now he's in trouble. Not only would the Wildcats part with their bluegrass to have Donovan, but NBA teams continue to be enamored with UF's coach as well. Donovan could easily parlay this attention into a $2-plus million-a-year extension. His players might disown him if he does. "I don't even think that's something that's crossed his mind," Joakim Noah said. "If it did then that would be messed up. I would be disappointed in my coach because I know he's not like that." Added Corey Brewer: "I don't think Florida has anything to worry about. Why would you leave Florida to go to Kentucky where nothing is really good enough unless you win a national championship?" Exactly. Leaving UF for Kentucky would be like Queen Elizabeth abdicating her thione in the United Kingdom4o rebuild Armenia. In Gainesville, Donovan has everyone's approval, win or lose. In Lexington, Ky. Donovan has a herd of nutty followers who would expect him to replicate UF's title within two years. Yet he is somehow still intrigued. If he leaves, you'd have to call him Silly Dumbovan. '0
