0the independent florida Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc of Gainesville, Florida VOLUME 103 ISSUE 164 We Inform. You Decide. -0 TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 LOCAL Scooter rider pulled under car, dies in crash By KAT BEIN Alligator Writer A 20-year-old Gainesville man was killed early Saturday morning when he was hit by a car while crossing Southwest 13th Street on his scooter. Matthew Taylor was turning north from Southwest 21st Avenue when he was hit by a northbound Mercedes sedan at about 2 a.m., according to Cpl. Tscharna Senn, spokeswoman for the Gainesville Police Department. According to witness reports, Taylor and his scooter fell under the car, which eventually caught fire. Members of the Alachua County Fire Department, a security officer from Shands at UF and numerous GPD units arrived at the scene following several witness calls reporting the accident, Senn said. It is unknown whether Taylor was wearing a helmet. Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene, and northbound traffic on Southwest 13th Street remained blocked until 6:45 a.m., she said. Fault has yet to be determined, and the crash remains under investigation by GPD officers, Senn said. Taylor described himself on Facebook as "a joker at heart .i give alot and will always back anyone up who needs it." He said hard work made him who he was. According to Facebook, Taylor worked as an assistant manager at Gator Domino's and was looking forward to marrying his fianc6e, Ashley Haire, whom he'd dated since November of 2006. Taylor's Facebook wall displays messages from friends, telling how he will be "infinitely missed." There will be a memorial service for Taylor on Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Williams-Thomas Funeral Home. Investigators examine the scene of an accident on Southwest 13th Street early Saturday morning after a car struck a moped, killing the moped's driver, Matthew Taylor, 20. Gainesville bars skirt ladies night restrictions BARS ARE HOSTING SHAVED-LEG AND HIGH-HEEL NIGHTS. By ALEXANDER KLAUSNER Alligator Contributing Writer It used to be that on certain nights, if you wanted a free drink, all you had to do was be a lady. Now, for some bars, all you have to do is wear high heels or shave your legs. With the city's recent talks of discouraging ladies nights in Gainesville, a few area bars have come up with some creative ways to circumvent legal problems. But is the effort worth the trouble? According to city commission candidate Ozzy Angulo, contrary to popular belief ladies nights in Gainesville are not illegal. While the Gainesville Office of Equal Opportunity is fielding complaints related to discrimination regarding ladies nights around town, law enforcement officers are not banging down bar doors trying to shut anything down. Under current Gainesville codes, if someone were to complain that he or she felt discriminated against because a local bar held a ladies night, then the Office of Equal Opportunity would investigate that bar. Although the threat of complaint is remote, some bars aren't taking chances. Lux Bar, 211 W University Ave., has done away with its ladies night promotion and switched to new promotions, like their high-heels night. Many of the bars that have changed their promotions are doing so because they don't want to deal with the hassles of possible complaints and subsequent investiLocal gations, Angulo said. News Lux owner Steve Nichtberger, like other local bar owners, has not heard any complaints about ladies nights in Gainesville. "I've never heard of a guy complain about ladies night and feeling discriminated against," he said. "Usually they're happy they don't have to buy the drinks." Other bars, such as Mars Bar and Laser Tag, haven't changed anything at all. Although they are opening themselves up to the possibility of investigation, they are still offering ladies night promotions on Thursdays. Mars owner Melissa Del Valle said police stopped by her establishment to ask if she was aware that ladies nights could be a violation of the city's ordinance code. "Everyone keeps talking about it," Del Valle said. "I hear that Midtown bars are telling them'Oh don't worry guys. We're not doing ladies night,' but it really isn't illegal, so I SEE LADIES, PAGE 8 Copyrighted Material Syndicated Content Available from Commercial News Providers N To see video of the Gainesville Police Department's response to the scooter crash and for continuous coverage throughout the week, visit Steak'n Shake D\s Inn Domino's Pizza The crash occurred of Southwest 13th Street and Southwest 21st Alexander Silva/ Alligator Staff Former Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey is the focus of an investigation by the NCAA and UF regarding potential rules violations.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 Shands at UF named best in state in 4 specialties 0 SHANDS WAS IN THE TOP 50 NATIONALLY IN 8 AREAS. By MICHAELA TRIMBLE Alligator Contributing Writer Shands at UF was ranked in eight adult specialties by U.S. News & World Report's 20102011 edition of America's Best Hospitals. The rankings, announced publicly on Thursday, analyzed 4,852 hospitals in 16 specialties. Each hospital was ranked in the four areas of reputation, death rate, patient safety and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services. Shands was one of 152 hospitals out of the 4,852 surveyed that performed well enough to rank among the top 50 in any of the specialties. Shands was the highest-ranked Florida hospital in four specialties. It ranked 32nd nationally in heart and heart surgery, 40th in kidney disorders, 29th in pulmonology and 25th in urology. Shands also ranked 29th nationally in cancer care, 39th in neurology and neurosurgery, 39th in geriatrics and 41st in gastroenterology. Shands was the only Florida hospital ranked in pulmonology, and, for the third consecutive year, the state's highest-ranked hospital in urology, the surgical specialty treating Local diseases and disorNewS ders of the urinary tracts of male and females and the reproductive system of males. Dr. Johannes Vieweg, UF department of urology chairman, said he owes much of the success in the survey to the recruitment 1P of new faculty. Vieweg said his department would like to reach out and open up to more areas, extending practices beyond the Gainesville area to become a provider throughout the state and even the country. He said he sees patients visiting from other states for the quality care Shands offers. "Patients really seek out the top-ranked programs," Vieweg said. "I think this will positively reflect on Shands." Dr. Carmen Allegra, chief of the division of hematology and oncology for the department of 1 0 ,.% b,. medicine, said he owed part of his department's recognition to excellent faculty as well. "We've had a tremendous number of new faculty join us within the last year or two," Allegra said. "Many of them have national and international reputations." Shands Children's Hospital also received recognition in the best children's hospital rankings. The pediatric center ranked 12th in diabetes and endocrinology.

TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 5 ELECTIONS Voters have less than a week left to register By TARA WIND Alligator Contributing Writer The voter registration deadline for the fall election is rapidly approaching. Voters must register for the Aug. 24 primary elections by Monday, which is also the last day for voters to change party affiliation. Some of the offices voters can expect to see on their ballots are U.S. senator, governor, attorney general, county commissioner, county judge and school board. Pam Carpenter, Alachua County supervisor of elections, said it is important for everyone to vote. "It's our opportunity to have our voice be heard, and to choose candidates who are going to represent us in the way we want to be represented," she said. Registration forms are available at, she said. Forms can be filled out online but must be printed, signed and mailed or brought to the supervisor of elections office, located at 111 SE First Ave. If a form is mailed, it must be postmarked by Monday for the voter to be eligible to participate in the primary election. Recently, voter registration levels have been slowly increasing, Carpenter said. She said she wants students to remember they must vote in the precinct of their residency. If students change their residence to Alachua County, they need to register here, she said. If students aren't changing their residence, then they need to request an absentee ballot so they can vote while they are in school. Dayna Firth, a 21-year-old political science major, said students should vote because she believes it's their most fundamental right as Americans. She said students Carpenter should register to vote to "ensure that your voice makes a difference in the future of our nation." Firth is the secretary for the UF College Democrats and the vice president for the Florida College Democrats. "It is our duty to protect our interests as students, locally and nationally," she said. UF sub breaks at event By LIDIA DINKOVA Alligator Contributing Writer Ten Gators have built a self-navigating submarine. A team of nine UF engineering students and a professor spent about a year and hundreds of hours in the lab to construct, test and perfect their model of the submarine. They did not make it to the final cut, however, at the 13th annual International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition in San Diego last week. "The difference between victory and total failure is very small," said professor Erik Schwartz, a consultant for the project. The event invites teams from universities from all over the world to show the abilities of their submarines, which are entirely independent from any human control. The first-place winner this year was Cornell University. UF has competed since 1996 and was the first-place winner in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The team's submarine, called "SubjuGator," weighed between 50 and 60 pounds and included two cameras, two computers, six thrusters, two shooters, one grabber, a compass and a thermometer among other mechanics, said Cedric Adam, a mechanical engineering student who worked on the project. The submarine's basic mechanical core was the same as the one used in the past three years, but each year students make significant improvements on the software and motors. The competition requires the submarines to locate, shoot at and pick up objects. During the competition, the UF team was doing well until the On final round, when the cirCampus cuits moving the propellers malfunctioned. The submarine went around in circles until the students gave up and pulled it out of the water. "A fish with only one fin can only swim in circles," Schwartz said, describing the SubjuGator's dysfunctional motor driver. On their way home Monday, the students were already discussing ways to improve their submarine model for next year. r wTnIME with Gainesville's fastest Internet COX High Speed InternetM -Share photos and videos in a snap with Gainesville's fastest speeds -Instant message and email family and friends with ease -Reliable, always-on connection with FREE security software powered by McAfeet *Offer expires 8/31/10.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 Editorial Drinking Discrimination Bars find a loophole he city may have hammered the last nail in the coffin for ladies night months ago, but that's not stopping local wells from walking on the razor's edge to get around the now-illegal, yet oh-so-common, promotion. Rather than mourn the death of free booze for broads, bars like Grog House and Rue Bar have gotten proactive. Introducing the new specials, which are the same as the old specials. Whether you name it "shaved-leg night," "highheel night," or exactly what it is-loophole abuse-it's just a clever way for our favorite dives, clubs and haunts to get around the law. Theoretically, you don't have to be a member of the fairer sex to get one of those bottomless, white plastic cups-any Tom, Dick or Harry with milky smooth calves could get away with drinking for free at Grog House on a Wednesday night. But paying for that pitcher of Natural Light is probably preferable to explaining all those nicks and cuts on your thighs to your bro friends. We understand why bars want to keep the status quogetting a bunch of girls to patronize a college sweatbox is a surefire way to get guys to come in and slap their paper, or plastic, on the bar and join in on the fun. Plus, if the drinks are free for the ladies, then guys have to spring for the good stuff to turn any heads. But the problem with ladies night wasn't discrimination, it was something much bigger: binge drinking. Sure, it stings a little having to pay for drinks when you see how effortlessly teenag-uh-20-somethings get their umpteenth, free vodka-cranberry, but it's not hard to get over. What is hard to get over is enabling and encouraging young women to drink as much as they want or can in an environment filled with strangers who can't wait to sidle out into that alleyway behind Midtown and facilitate some bad decisions. We aren't trying to weave a horror story here, but if we were we wouldn't have to tread too far from reality to prove that bad things can happen when a lot of free booze is involved. That's why the law was made in the first place. Maybe there is some sort of discriminatory aspect to ladies night, but the ban had a secondary objective to curb binge drinking. The solution: fight fire with fire. Or in this case, fight loophole abuse with loophole abuse. Bars exist because they are profitable. It wouldn't be hard for any local well to make bank at 4 a.m. on Easter Sunday if it were allowed to be open. It would be hard to make Wednesdays and Thursdays a boon to their bottom lines if everyone walking in had shaved legs and heels though. Maybe it would be a little embarrassing for guys to ask for free drinks on the basis of their legs being freshly shaven, but we worked out the alibi for you: Just meet all those condescending looks from bouncers and bartenders with a quick story about how you decided to take up professional swimming. It might seem a little too unbelievable at first, but trust us-after a few free drinks, you won't really care that much at all. Just be vigilant about keeping those legs smoothnobody likes those second-day pricklies. a ll te independent forida Rachael Pino EDITOR Paul Runnestrand Stefania Ferro MANAGING EDITORS Drew Wilson OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University Aye or send them to P0 Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

For one, my big sister waited until her 21st, so that's what I thought you were supposed to do. She has always been my role model. Two, I'm stubborn, and I had told people a while ago that I was waiting until my 21st birthday to drink. I had made up my mind, but they doubted me or told me I'd go wild once I arrived at college. This fueled my fire even more to keep my word. And three, it doesn't sit well with me to think of doing anything illegal. I'm just one of those people who is paranoid of getting in trouble for no good reason. I'd get nervous when an officer would walk by me in the halls when I was in middle school-palms sweaty, heart racing, the whole deal-and I never did anything wrong. I guess you could say I'm a stickler for rules, and I'm OK with that. So, at the handful of house parties I've been to in my three years at UT, and during the many nights out dancing at clubs, Ijust got used to saying, "No, thank you. I don't drink," when an offer came my way. I'd hold my cup of water, and sometimes people wouldn't even realize I wasn't drinking. But not being 21 began to get annoying when my sister hit the big mile marker two years ago. Being denied from many clubs, bars and even restaurants made me want to scream, and I'm not an angry person. It became a blockade in our friendship, a limit on our outings and a separation of sorts. Once, we got all dressed up and went to the Hard Rock. I think we approached the doors of about 10 places and were turned away. "I don't even want to drink," I'd say. "I just want to come in and sit with her." No dice. After recently being turned down from the Starlight Room night club in our hotel on a family trip to San Francisco, and then more recently by Market Street Pub in downtown Gainesville, I had about had it with being underage. But last Wednesday it all ended, and I awoke a free bird, a woman with access. I turned 21. That night, I went to Midtown with 21 friends for one of the most fun nights ever. We started with dinner at The Swamp. Appropriately, my sister ALLIGATOR E LAGES\JILLE .TR.UCE 08 A -69A~a P A LVW O~A YE ~ SI. u-D 8A\JS OWAEJ\ Lu V, , lI'MA Kathryn Stolarz bought me my first drink. The waitSpeaking Out ress didn't ID me -after all, I was wearing a tiara and a "21 Things" sign -but I flashed my license at her anyway. What once was my ticket to "no" now became my all-access pass. Finally, I would unveil the beloved world of booze. I would learn what Grey Goose, peach schnapps, black raspberry, pineapple and Sprite tasted like together. I would be allowed into 101 Cantina and Salty Dog and Balls when I arrived in the coming hours. And, yes, I would be that loud, obnoxious freshly 21-year-old girl stumbling through Midtown in stilettos with a giant sign around her neck. I enjoyed a few shots with funny names and kept describing a warm sensation in my face and throat. I enjoyed sipping shots because they were so flavorful, much to the chagrin of the people who bought them for me who expected me to kick them back in one gulp. I danced, I met people and talked excitedly. I laughed a bit more than usual. And I was overly nice -telling people how nice their eyes were or that they had a big heart. I taught someone how to belly dance, collected 21 phone numbers, had an intellectual conversation, dined with a stranger, made a speech, called the 21st person in my phone and braided the hair of a male stranger, among other equally crazy things listed on my sign. A few minutes after 2 a.m., after walking out of Balls cheerful but tired, I proudly announced to the world I completed the 21 things on my sign. If you ask me if I would have enjoyed my 21st as much if I had started drinking years earlier like many kids do, I couldn't tell you. But my guess would be that I wouldn't have. The excitement and anticipation of tasting my first drink, of trying different liquors, of being initiated into the drinking world, could not have been nearly as great if I had taken all those opportunities to get used to it. I had built up a curiosity, and waiting made me appreciate the discovery. Kathryn Stolarz is a UF journalism senior. The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7 Letters to the Editor Ticket policy is unfair for sick students If you are a student and need to go to the neurology, oncology, or any of the other important 'ology clinics at Shands Medical Plaza: beware. The parking "officers" are waiting to prey on your sick, wasting, contemptible body. I've been ticketed the last three times I have gone for legitimate doctor's appointments. There is nothing you can do to protect yourself. As a patient you are required to park in the attended lot. If you are a student and they find you, you will get a ticket. It's that simple. The burden is on you to convince UF Transportation and Parking Services you were there legitimately. Don't believe it? Allow me. Unlike parking in front of the Student Health Care Center, you do not get a tag to put in your windshield to show you are a legitimate visitor. Instead, when I asked the "officer" who gave me one of my tickets what I did wrong he simply replied: "I ran your tag and it showed you were a student." What a racket. Here is the de facto policy as it stands now: 1. Assume any student parked in the garage is there illegitimately and ticket them. 2. Place the burden on dent patients to prove thro process they were sick. 3. Profit. Florida should not follow I am disappointed to week that Florida is backi immigration law that basi cial profiling. It is not only offensive ing legal immigrants there legitimate stuneed to have proof of citizenship with ugh the appeals themselves at all times, but it is offensive to me as an American.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 Butterfly-friendly plants available at campus museum 0 THE MUSEUM IS LOCATED AT SOUTHWEST 34TH STREET AND HULL ROAD. CAYLA HARVEY Alligator Contributing Writer Those looking to add something new to their garden should consider butterflies. The Florida Museum of Natural History holds a butterflyfriendly plant sale every Friday to Sunday as part of a series of plant sales. The sale's proceeds will benefit the museum's butterfly rainforest. "What we try to do is feature the plants that we know will work for the butterflies because we see what works out there in the exhibit," said Michael Boulware, who specializes in living exhibits at the museum. The plant sale, located outside of the museum's front entrance near the picnic area, features an assortment of plants, and the list of plants available changes with each weekend's sale. There are two types of plants sold in front of the museum: the plants that caterpillars eat and nectar plants that the butterflies feed off. Boulware, a former organic farmer, found that if organic food crops are produced correctly, they will then attract butterflies, which can be viewed as a positive or a negative depending on the gardener. "I've got a butterfly garden growing at the house and it's the coolest thing to watch them," said Jerri Sullivan, a volunteer. While some of the plants are brought in from local nurseries, most of the plants were grown in the museum. One type of plant hasn't been selling better than the rest because people pick plants to suit their gardens, Sullivan said. "I would say a lot of people are very native-plant conscious," Boulware said. "If it attracts a butterfly that's great too, but they want to buy someLocal thing that's going to News look good." Plant prices are about half of what customers would pay at a nursery, Sullivan said. Plants are priced depending on pot size. Four-inch pots sell for $3, onegallon pots cost $6 and three-gallon pots cost up to $18. The plant sales will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The museum will feature 10 plants each week, along with at least one additional unannounced species, according to the museum's website. For a complete list of plants available, visit butterflies/plant-sales.

The band was performing as part of the "Endless Bummer" music show, a two-day event. City ordinance bans ladies night specials LA DIES, from page 1 don't know what all the fuss is." Angulo said he thinks these promotions are opening the door to absurdity. "At the end of the day, it's not going to change anything," he said. "It's going to create a little bit more confusion and rowdiness." Guys seeking out a free drink may take advantage of the new promotions, stopping in at bars, flashing their shaved legs and walking around in high heels, Angulo said. UF student Chris Brown agrees with Angulo, "At the end of the day, it's not going to change anything. It's going to create a little bit more confUsion and rowdiness." Ozzy Angulo city commission candidate though he won't be one of those guys. "I definitely would not shave my legs or wear heels to get a drink," he said, "because that stuff does not go away. There's gonna be pictures on Facebook or s-like that, and your reputation will always be as the guy that wears high heels for free drinks." Northwest Seafood, Inc.

Sports TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 ALLIGATOR UF FOOTBALL Maurkice Pouncey at the center of NCAA probe By KYLE MAISTRI Alligator Staff Writer kmaistri@alligator org According to a story first reported by's Pat Forde, UF and the NCAA are investigating a potential rules violation committed in December, before the Gators'51-24 Sugar Bowl victory over Cincinnati, involving former offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey. Florida is in the process of investigating an allegation that a representative of an agent paid Pouncey $100,000 between UF's loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Championship game and the Sugar Bowl. Florida alerted the NCAA when they became aware of the potential incident, according to Forde. UF athletic director Jeremy Foley released the following statement to on Monday morning: "We were made aware of some information in early June that we reported to law enforcement and we then shared with the NCAA and the SEC. At this time we have no information that has indicated that there are any compliance issues for the University of Florida." Maurkice Pouncey was drafted with the 18th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers after his junior season with the Gators. "At this time we have no information that has indicated that there are any compliance issues for the University of Florida." Jeremy Foley UF athletic director If the allegations hold up, the NCAA could rule Pouncey retroactively ineligible for the Sugar Bowl, and Florida could have to vacate the victory. Mike Pouncey, Maurkice's twin brother, elected to return to UF rather than turn pro after his junior season and is slated to represent the Gators at SEC Media Days, which takes place July 21-23 in Hoover, Ala., along with Ahmad Black and Justin Trattou. A UF official said that there are no changes in the school's Media Days'plans, meaning that Mike Pouncey is still expected to make the trip. I 9 Harrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff Former UF center Maurkice Pouncey (56) is alleged to have accepted $100,000 from an agent's representative sometime between the 2009 Southeastern Conference Championship Game and the Sugar Bowl. NCAA needs to rethink amateur status given to college athletics monster that is college sports is beginning to rear its ugly head, which for a long time has been hiding behind a veil of amateurism. This summer college football, just one of the many faces of the college sports monster, has been masquerading behind news of conference expansion and possible realignment. But that facade was smeared by sanctions resulting from improper benefits received by athletes and investigations of possible rules violations regarding illegal contact with agents all because the NCAA doesn't pay its athletes. It's getting out of hand, really. First, there were the sanctions handed down to Southern California by the NCAA regarding its findings that former Heisman winner Reggie Bush and his family accepted nearly $280,000 in improper benefits, as did former Trojans basketball standout O.J. Mayo. Just last week, news surfaced that the NCAA is investigating UNC's football program, coached by Butch Davis, for possible rules violations. In the wake of that report, South Carolina also announced it was being probed by the NCAA for potential rules violations, with multiple outlets claiming the allegations revolve around Gamecocks tight end Weslye Saunders. While the NCAA has not officially disclosed what each of those investigations is about, it is believed that both of them also deal with improper benefits and illegal contact with sports agents. When ESPN's Pat Forde reported Monday that UF was also under NCAA investigation for allegations surrounding former offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey possibly receiving $100,000 in benefits from an agent, the issue seemed to come to a climax and the makeup continued to run down the monster's face. If found to be true, all of these allegations are serious and should be dealt with appropriately. However, this wouldn't even be an issue if college sports weren't treated as amateur athletics. It's time the NCAA lifted the veil of amateurism that has been draped over the face of college athletics and revealed it for what it truly is: professional sports in a college setting. These athletes made it to where they are because they were gifted with a certain skill set, but more importantly, because they worked hard and dedicated themselves to that skill to be as good as they are. It's a travesty that what they do at universities brings in ample money to Tom Green their institutions ow especially the larger The Tom Green Shw sprs like football, tgreen @all Iigator org sportslkfota, green____gtor__r which practically fund the athletic programs -yet these student-athletes don't get paid for it. Sure, you can argue that they get a full ride through college with their athletic scholarships, but hey, plenty of people earn scholarships that help them through college, myself included. Just like athletes on scholarship, I use my scholarship money to pay for fees, books and food. The same goes for plenty of other college students out there. The difference though, is that while I work and get paid in order to supplement my funds, these athletes -for whom training, practice and games take up most of their time -aren't getting that same extra cash for the work they are doing on the field. To say that college athletes aren't professionals is a sham, because they are training year-round and putting in the work to better themselves and their team, all while bringing in more money to the schools they represent. The fact that these players don't get paid because of the way the system is formatted doesn't excuse any possible violations regarding improper benefits, but the NCAA needs to stop kidding itself and pay its athletes. Of course, the logistics of payments due to the athletes is a whole other issue, particularly with Title IX requiring women's sports to be given the same funding as the men's programs. Figuring out how much payment to allot to each sport, and more specifically, to each athlete, could pose quite a problem for the schools, and for the NCAA. Coming up with a solution to that issue, though, is better than having the NCAA misrepresent college athletics as amateurism. It needs to face reality and accept college athletics for what it truly is, instead of presenting it as something it's not. It's time for the NCAA to remove that veil.

TEEING OFF WITH TOM GREEN U 27-year-old Ilya Kovalchuk signed a 17-year, $102 million deal to remain with New Jersey. I guess you can say he sold his soul to the Devil(s). .After watching "Inception" over the weekend, I'm beginning to think planting an idea in someone's mind is actually possible.

20, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, JULY 20, 2010 P By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer I -W I 1. NCAA, UF investigating former Gator ESPN's Pat Forde first reported Monday that the NCAA and UF are investigating possible rules violations regarding former Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey. The 18th overall pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers this year, is alleged to have accepted $100,000 in improper benefits from Alligator File Photo a representative of an agent. The news comes as other schools, such as North Carolina and South Carolina are under inspection for similar violations. 2. SEC Media Days begin Wednesday The 2010 Southeastern Conference Media Days are set to take place this week in Hoover, Ala. The event begins Wednesday with representatives from Alabama, Mississippi State, Florida and Kentucky scheduled to appear in front of the media. The Gators are scheduled to bring head coach Urban Meyer, defensive end Justin Trattou and safety Ahmad Black. Offensive lineman Mike Pouncey is still slated to appear despite reports of an NCAA investigation surroundHarrison Diamond/ Alligator Staff ing his twin brother. 3. Jordan sounds off on LeBron's decision Former six-time NBA Finals MVP Michael Jordan made headlines last weekend when, after a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada, he said he wouldn't have done what LeBron James did by joining fellow superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry (Bird), called up Magic (Johnson) and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team.' .I was trying to beat those guys," he said. I I No. 6 TCU: Horned Frogs eye a second BCS berth 0 TCU'S DEFENSE GAVE UP 12.8 POINTS PER GAME LAST SEASON. By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org Even though TCU made it to their first BCS bowl game in school history, they ended their 2009-2010 campaign on a sour note. After an undefeated regular season, TCU fell to Boise State 17-10 in the Fiesta Bowl. But the Horned Frogs will have another opportunity to compete for a national title this year as they come in at No. 6 in the alligatorSports' college football preseason rankings. Despite critics maintaining that TCU's weak schedule is the main reason for its success, the Horned Frogs have won 11 games in four of the past five seasons. If they want to make it five out of six, they will have to find a replacement for two-time All-American defensive end Jerry Hughes, who racked up a team-leading 11.5 sacks last year. The Indianapolis Colts selected him 31st overall in the NFL Draft. However, the Horned Frogs should have plenty of candidates to fill the void as seven starters return from a defense that allowed 12.8 points per game last season.

He piled up 50 tackles and finished second on the team with 5.5 sacks last year. The front seven will be important, as many expect a drop off in TCU's secondary from last season. Two first-team All-Mountain West Conference cornerbacks, Rafael Priest and Nick Sanders, graduated last season. The Homed Frogs' offense should provide their defense with ample support, however. TCU's offense finished fifth in the nation in scoring and it will return nine starters, one of them being MWC Offensive Player of the Year quarterback Andy Dalton. He threw for 2,756 yards and 23 touchdowns last year. Dalton's top four receivers, in terms of yardage, will be back. Seniors Jeremy Kerley (44 catches, 532 receiving yards), JimmyYoung (33, 517) and Bart Johnson (33, 410), and junior Antoine Hicks (23, 478) will provide Dalton with plenty of options in the passing game. The offense will be without leading rusher Joseph Turner, who graduated. However, the backfield will be in good hands. Sophomores Matthew Tucker and Ed Wesley each ran for over 600 yards last season behind Turner. Dalton will help with the ground game, too. He gained 512 yards with his legs last season, giving the offense an added dimension.
