Gators earn No. 2 seed in NCAA Tournament


* UF WILL PLAY UCSB IN
TAMPA ON THURSDAY.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

ATLANTA- Just hours after
a crushing defeat in the finals
of the Southeastern Conference
Tournament, the Gators found
new life.
With Sunday's announcement
of the 2011 NCAA Tournament
field came the revelation that
Florida received the No. 2 seed
in the Southeast region, a higher
spot than widely predicted.
The Gators will face 15-seed
University of California Santa
Barbara on Thursday in Tampa.
"We are really excited about
being in the NCAA Tournament,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"I'm very happy for our players
and our staff for the opportunity
to compete."
Florida will head into the
matchup hoping to rebound from
Sunday's 70-54 loss to Kentucky.
Playing perhaps their best bas-
ketball of the season, the Gators
entered the contest on a four-
game winning streak but fell one
win short of sweeping the SEC


championships.
"It hurts, but we've been here
before," senior forward Chandler
Parsons said. "We're not going to
hang our heads after one loss.
"We want to make a run in the
Tournament. It hurts right now,
and I'm sure it's going to hurt
later, but we've got to move past
that and look forward."

"We are really excited
about being in the NCAA
Tournament. I'm very hap-
py for our players and our
staff for the opportunity to
compete."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach

The Gators are 6-0 f II..,i, I..
losses so far this season and have
won those contests by an aver-
age of 19.3 points per game. This
trend is not lost on Donovan or
his players, who have spoken all
year about how well they handle
adversity.
"We're a resilient group, and,
if anything, this will help us fo-
cus that much more in practice,"
junior guard Erving Walker said.

UF guards Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton are back in the NCAA Tournament, as the Gators received

Students safe in Japan


By MEREDITH RUTLAND
Alligator Writer

Alyssa Post was buying groceries Fri-
day afternoon when the store went dark
and started trembling.
Post, a 21-year-old East Asian Lan-
guages and Literatures senior at UF who
is studying in Tokyo, had just put cream
cheese into her grocery cart when the city
was rocked by the 8.9-magnitude earth-
quake that began off the country's north-
east coast.
She and the other 11 UF students who
were in Japan at the time are safe, said


Kirsten Laufer, UF's study abroad assis-
tant director.
She said one UF student was in N11-
gata, about 100 miles from the center of
the earthquake, and four were in Tokyo.
The rest were in cit-
International les farther south and
News west, away from the
heart of the earth-
quake and the path of the tsunami that
tore through Japan's coastal towns.
Post, who is from Miami, said store
employees told her to abandon her grocer-
ies and get outside. None of the food fell

Every weekday, Ozzy Angulo rises at 7

Around the same time, Lauren Poe is
preparing to teach dual enrollment students
about government at the same college.
Before going to his pawn shop for anoth-

to feed his parrot, Papooga.
All three will fill the rest of the day shak-
ing hands and pitching their platforms in
their pursuits for a seat on the Gainesville
City Commission.


Now as the calender creeps closer to
Tuesday - election day - they are nearing
the end.
Of the 13 candidates
vying for the three seats,
most said they have
enjoyed campaigning
despite the break-neck
speed that accompanies
running for public office.

Police: Man gets stuck in hamper during break-in
MESA, Ariz. - A man is in custody after he broke into a town-
home and got stuck in a clothes hamper underneath the window
he climbed through. Mesa police say 20-year-old Michael Trias was
arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage.
The East Valley Tribune reports a resident inside the home
heard the commotion of Trias becoming entangled in the hamper at
about 9 a.m. Thursday. The owner of the home restrained Trias and
was able to take him outside and call police. No property was taken
from the home, but there was some damage done to the window.

WHAT'S HAPPENING
"Italiani Nuovi or Nuova Italia?
Attitudes Toward Granting
Citizenship to Second-
generation Immigrants in
Contemporary Italy"
Today, 11:45 a.m.
Turlington Hall Room 3312
Italy is home to an ever-grow-
ing population of children of
immigrants born and raised
in the country but who do not
have Italian citizenship due to
the restrictive regime in place.
Although many children of
immigrants have the oppor-
tunity to apply for citizenship
upon their 18th birthday, a
series of conditions and provi-
sions render the process dif-
ficult and preclude many of
them from applying at all.
This talk by Georgia Bianchi,
Sociology Doctoral Candidate,
explores Italians' views about
granting citizenship to second-
generation immigrants in Italy.
This event is sponsored by the
Center for European Studies.

Business college ranks in top 50


By MINA RADMAN
Alligator Writer

The Warrington College of
Business Administration has been
ranked one of the top 50 business
programs in the country.
The UF business school jumped
13 spots from 2010 to place 42nd in
Bloomberg BusinessWeek's 2011
ranking of 113 undergraduate
business programs in the nation's
colleges and universities.
It is the highest ranking for the
school since the magazine began
ranking programs six years ago.


"Obviously our students are
doing a great job in interviews and
programs," said Brian Ray, direc-
tor of the business school and as-
sociate dean of the college.
"We are very happy with
the rankings and pleased
recruiters are seeing the
talent of students."
Brian Ray
director of the business school

the last few years, Ray said.
Warrington has implemented
two new professional courses stu-
dents are required to take: public
speaking and a professional writ-
ing class. The college also began
offering students a variety of mi-
nors, including accounting and en-
trepreneurship.
Ray said professional recruiters
placed Warrington 10th among the
schools ranked.
"We are very happy with the

UF researcher outlines


strategy to save bananas
By REBECCA DANTA keep Tropical Race 4 out of America and what
Alligator Contributing Writer to do in the case of an outbreak. He aims to


The banana plant may be at risk of extinc-
tion due to the spread of a disease.
Randy Ploetz, a researcher at UF's Tropi-
cal Research and Education Center in south
Florida, has created a six-part plan which he
is sharing with the banana industry to prevent
the spread of the disease to the Western Hemi-
sphere.
Tropical Race 4, a variant of Panama dis-
ease, destroyed entire banana plantations in
Southeast Asia in 1990. If the disease spreads
to South America, there would be a significant
impact on Florida consumers who rely on im-
ports of the fruit because of Florida's unfavor-
able environment for growing bananas.
Ploetz said if the disease does spread to
South America, the Cavendish banana people
know today would become extinct.
"I don't have a crystal ball, so I don't know
when it's going to happen," he said. "But what
has happened in the past with diseases like
this is they do move."
Ploetz's plan lays out strategies on how to


educate banana producers, researchers and
anyone involved with the banana market in
the Western Hemisphere.
"This affects virtually anyone who
consumes the typical Chiquita
banana seen in grocery stores."
Randy Ploetz
researcher at UF's Tropical Research and
Education Center

"My goal is to let people know that this
thing is lurking," he said. "They need to be
prepared on how to keep it away and what to
do when it comes."
Ploetz said if the disease spreads to the
Western Hemisphere, it will wipe out entire
banana plantations in countries such as Ecua-
dor, where bananas are the biggest export.
"This affects virtually anyone who con-
sumes the typical Chiquita banana seen in gro-
cery stores," he said.


Movie festival kicks off


By SHELLEY GREENSPAN
Alligator Contributing writer
Gainesville's first Jewish Film Fes-
tival starts today and is designed to
entertain and educate the Gainesville
community on Jewish culture.
The festival kicks off tonight with
a screening of "The Yankles," a movie
about a washed-up, ex-professional
baseball player who gets a second
chance at life and love by managing
a Jewish orthodox yeshiva baseball
team.
Presented by the UF Hillel, the
Gainesville Jewish Film Festival pres-
ents a dynamic and exciting perception
of Judaism and the global Jewish com-
munity, according to organizers.
Amanda Solomon, the arts direc-
tor for UF Hillel's student leadership
board and the main coordinator behind
the event, said she hopes the film festi-
val will highlight Jewish culture world-
wide as well as erase negative stereo-


types people tend to cling to.
Each night has a specific theme
based on the importance to Jewish his-
tory and Jewish identity as a whole. For
six nights, broad themes, such as "social
action" and "Jews in sports," were cho-
sen to ensure everyone can connect to
the films in some way, Solomon said.
In addition to the film, there will be a
speaker featured after each screening.
All screenings are free and open
to the public and
Multicultural will take place at
Affairs the Hippodrome
Theatre from 7 p.m.
to 10 p.m. The festival runs through
March 29.
Jeannie Bobroff, a member of
Gainesville's Jewish community, said
the film festival will inspire many local
Jewish residents to get involved in the
community.
"Alarge-scale event like this film fes-
tival is just what the community needs
to be proud of where they're from," Bo-
broff said.

District 3 candidate Rob Zeller said the busiest part has
been the dozen or so forums and paper questionnaires.
"They take a lot more time to answer than I thought," he
said.
But for most candidates, campaigning hasn't been just
hectic. Sacrifices have been made.
"I haven't seen my kids much in the last four weeks," said
Zeller, who has three young children. "My daughter wants
to see me more."
His 5-year-old daughter, Lily, will have a birthday soon
after the election, and he doesn't want to miss it.
But if there's a run-off, he'll be swamped again.
"If there's another election, then I have to get back to the

For James Ingle, who's running for a seat in District 2,
wedding planning has been delayed.

Editorial

Run-on Sentence

Delaying restoration of

felons' rights a crime
We understand that people forfeit some of their
rights when they break the law. It's just, and it's
part of the due punishment our justice system
provides.
However, we were left scratching our heads Wednes-
day, when Florida's state clemency board made it harder
for nonviolent felons to regain those rights upon release
from prison.
Just four years ago, former Gov. Charlie Crist saw a
problem with the massive delays in restoring the rights
to vote, run for public office, sit on a jury or hold specific
occupational licenses.
He granted these felons immediate restoration of
their rights - and by "immediate," we mean it would
take months or years for the paperwork to work its way
through Florida bureaucracy.
Gov. Rick Scott sees things differently, as does Attorney
General Pam Bondi.
They, along with other members of the board, decided
people who have served their time and followed court or-
ders would have an additional sentence tacked on to jail
time and restitution: five years of revoked rights.
That's five years before they can even begin jumping
through hoops to get the rights back. It's five years before
people who normal society has a vested interest in re-as-
similating can again start feeling like a normal citizen.
We fall to understand the board's reasoning for this
change in policy.
In fact, with his vague talk and secrecy surrounding the
decision, we suspect the governor himself doesn't have a
decent reason for it.
There has been talk that the members of the board sim-
ply wanted to pull strings to ensure a disproportionately
black and Democrat voting block was eliminated from the
upcoming elections. The Miami Herald even went as far as
to call the policy change a return to Jim Crow laws, stating
that the state has "gone back a century."
Whether that's true and whether people agree with the
board's decision have yet to be seen, but we are alarmed
by the secrecy that surrounded the change.
Meeting to vote on a proposal made public only at the
beginning of the same meeting doesn't sound like the Flor-
ida's fabled "Government in the Sunshine" to us.
Just the opposite: It sounds like shady business.
We hoped the board members would understand the
idea of a deliberate government and at least give the op-
position time to gather its thoughts and speak on a given
issue.
Instead, the governor and his ilk are using the finesse
of a steamroller and the speed of a jet to reshape the state
to fit their vision.
When Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam voiced
his concerns - albeit weakly - over the speed at which
the board was moving, it should have sent up red flags.
His objection and near-immediate coalescence speaks vol-
umes about Gov. Scott's modus operandi.
Even if Floridians haven't noticed it yet, our governor
is working to get what he likes, not what the people need
or want.
And that's a scary reality.

Freedom, fairness supp
freedom and fairness are two of the bedrock princi-
ples upon which our nation was founded. As such,
they provide potent pressure against any who ap-
pear to disfavor them.
For this very reason, people who advo-
cate for gay marriage have sought to co-
opt these ideas and claim them as their own.
What many people who favor traditional marriage fail
to recognize is that these advocates are, in fact, correct.
The debate surrounding the definition of marriage
does ultimately depend on fundamental freedoms and
fairness.
However, these two cornerstones of American
society favor a traditional definition of marriage.
How is this? It's simple.
Every American, regardless of gender or sexual ori-
entation, is entitled to certain fundamental freedoms,
and society has accommodated these freedoms and
balanced its interests against those of the individual.
Marriage is, essentially, a state-sanctioned institution
with societal rights and responsibilities accompanying
its unique status.
Thus, our society has a vested interest in maintaining
the institution's integrity.
What is this interest, though?
Is it the stability of the institution?
Although this argument has merit, it falls short. Con-
sider that interracial marriage was once expressly for-
bidden, but it is widely accepted today.
Is it the economic aspect of marriage?
Again, this argument might have merit, but it is
weak.
Economic reasons are seldom sufficient when dis-
cussing issues of fundamental freedoms and fairness.


)ort traditional marriage
Is it to protect the rights of the par-
ties involved with - or incident to
- the marriage?
This answer is closer to the
truth.
Keep in mind that the state pro-
Zack Smith vides tax benefits for the marriage.
letters@alligatororg It also oversees probate pro-
ceedings when one partner in the
marriage dies.
It even enforces child support and custo-
dy agreements when a marriage, sadly, falls.
Perhaps, though, the answer lies in none of these argu-
ments.
Our society's most compelling interest in maintain-
ing the integrity of marriage is that this institution is
one of the hallmarks which itself defines a society.
Thus, fairness dictates that every member of our so-
ciety has an equal voice to determine what the defini-
tion of something as fundamental as marriage will be.
At the moment, society has accepted the traditional
view that marriage is between only one man and one
woman.
This prevailing view may change, though, as the
electorate becomes increasingly younger.
Because of this possibility of change, the people who
favor traditional marriage must continue to advocate
for their beliefs.
They must embrace the powerful ideas of freedom
and fairness by encouraging others to exercise their
voices in advocating for a traditional definition of mar-
riage.

Obama's Guantanamo about-face a necessary concession


President Barack Obama on Monday rescinded his two-
year-old directive banning military tribunals at Guan-
tanamo Bay. In a new executive order, Obama clears
the way for resuming military trials at the naval base. This is
regrettable, considering the president campaigned on - and
committed to, once taking office - closing Guantanamo with-
in a year of his inauguration. Still, the concession is a prudent
one. Guantanamo is a nearly impossible issue, one that may
be black-and-white in moral terms but is very gray in practice,
and the reforms that the president has included in his most re-
cent order alleviate much of what Americans have found so
distasteful regarding the military base.
In order to deal with the 172 prisoners currently detained
at the naval base, the new executive order reinstates a system
.II.. 11', prisoners to be tried by military courts. Numerous
obstacles have stood in the way of trying prisoners in civilian


Tufts Daily court and have forced them into legal
Editorial Board limbo and indeterminate detention.
The new executive order remedies this
UWire by :,11.. ii'i prisoners either to be tried
on-site by a military tribunal or to make
a plea bargain. Because many detainees were tortured to ob-
tam information, evidence gained from such tactics would be
thrown out in court, weakening the prospect of conviction.
The new order attempts to solve this problem by requiring
compliance with international treaties barring inhumane treat-
ment. But a fundamental problem remains: Because evidence
obtained under duress is inadmissible - even in these military
tribunals - the government faces a "Sophie's choice" between
releasing' .. -II, .'II; detaining people it reasonably believes to
be terrorist threats. This is the problem of Guantanamo.
Perhaps most important of all, the order establishes a pro-


cess of periodic review by several federal agencies of the pris-
oners' threat to our security. This will decide whether prisoners
should be tried, released or transferred to another country.
Nonetheless, the new executive order fails to address many
core issues pertaining to Guantanamo. Administration officials
have insisted that the president remains committed to closing
the base in the near future, but the order sheds little light on
when that will be. And because Obama made it clear that the
order only applies to current and not future detainees, it is un-
clear how the base will be used in coming years.
The new decision has left the long-term plans for Guantan-
amo up in the air. Commendable as this executive order is, it is
far from resolving an issue that has remained a sore point in the
United States for years.

Generating revenue is real goal of automated traffic tickets


Like many functions of the state, authori-
tative traffic precautions were imple-
mented for the purpose of .I l..-:ri. , a
revenue stream under the guise of safety. The
most outrageous measure has been an effort
to squelch driving violations through the use
of automated ticketing machines or ATMs. If
a motorist runs a red light, a camera takes a
picture of the vehicle and then sends a ticket
through the mail to crack down on running
red lights.
Besides the creepy Big Brother implications
of these measures, the machines come with a
number of reasons to be prohibited. The cam-
eras ignore the basic function of due process


by automatically ticketing drivers, relinquish-
ing their ability to immediately contest viola-
tions. Most importantly, though, studies show
the cameras actually lead to an increase in in-
tersecton accidents in complete opposition of
the program's hopes.
Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., the company
that manufactures ATMs, earns a portion of
the revenue, partially to pay for the devices.
But even more egregious, this company gets to
dictate where the cameras are installed based
on a location that is profitable, not necessar-
ily one that promotes greater safety. In line
with the profit motive, numerous cities have
been caught shortening the duration .r . . 11-.. -


Taylor Lutz lights, m a "dangerous
UWire fundraising initiative,"
according to the Huff-
ington Post.
Regardless of any benefits from the use of
ATMs, the machines ignore the premise of "in-
nocent until proven guilty." Due to the reality
that traffic cameras are incapable of differen-
tiating between an automobile owner and the
actual driver, the machines send tickets to the
owner of the vehicle. In addition, many citi-
zens have been ticketed for taking legal right-
hand turns, being treated the same as those
who blatantly have violated red lights.
As the money-making ATMs have been in-


stalled in 450 communities nationwide, stud-
ies have assessed the effectiveness of these en-
forcement mechanisms. As many would not
expect, the University of South Florida found
that traffic cameras "significantly increase
crashes and are a ticket to higher insurance
premiums." Instead of proceeding through
yellow lights, drivers slam on the breaks to
avoid tickets and often end up increasing the
amount of rear-end collisions at intersections.
The state always claims to hold the intent
of safety and concern for the citizenry, but this
is no solution to traffic control.

Uneasy In the Big Easy



Mardi Gras fails to live up to the hype


By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
i'd never been to Mardi Gras
before, or even to New Or-
leans, but I was instructed to
expect the worst.
I was told men would follow
me with beads, begging to see my
goodies. I was told urine and al-
cohol would flow in the streets. I
was insane, they said, for going.
That would have been awe-
some if that were the case. I pride
myself on my ability to rage and
ride the chaos until the booze
wave drowns us all.
But Fat Tuesday wasn't exactly
what I expected.
I arrived Monday evening and
checked into my fancy hotel near
the French quarter. My rag-tag
foursome was only slightly out
of place among the old and rich.
They were dressed for the opera;
we were dressed for a zombie
apocalypse.
We got ready in our room, then
headed out for Zoolu, a ware-
house rave in the central business
district.
But first we made a detour to
Bourbon Street, the fabled Mardi
Gras headquarters.


The street was barricaded,
shut down and filled with stum-
bling, doe-eyed drunks.
Men leered from centuries-old
balconies, pointing and shout-
ing at girls on the street to show
their breasts for plastic beads.
The girls giggled and said, "Me?"
Everyone drank fruity iced cock-
tails from tall, skinny plastic gob-
lets and wore blinking jewelry
bought from strolling light-up-
toy vendors.
Though there was a general
sense of lawlessness and a faint
smell of ganja, none of it felt
spontaneous or out of control.
Bourbon Street was a dirty, booze-
fueled Disney World that smelled
like vomit and human waste.
We moved toward Canal Street
through the hoard of revelers and
past mounted police officers to
our final party destination, which
was packed with thousands of
young people.
My friends and I danced and
goofed off while acrobatic girls
dangled from the ceiling. Some
crazy man in a wacky bodysuit
blew up a giant plastic bubble,
then danced his way inside of it.
The show went on until 3 a.m.,
and then we moved to another

Street in New Orleans on Tuesday.


club for the after-party, hang-
ing out in VIP until about 6 a.m.,
when we decided it was time to
hit the road.
I woke up on Fat Tuesday
sometime after noon to the sound
of parades outside my window.
When I made it to the street, I
found the whole town taken over
by every kind of person in the
world.
Instead of cars, bright and col-
orful floats with different themes
drove down the streets, hip-hop
and top-40 songs blasting from
their speakers. Riders cheered,
threw things and waved. Candy,
beaded necklaces and confetti
showered the bystanders of all
ages. About 1 million people at-
tended.
I reflected on the fact that this
is a religious holiday, but Mardi
Gras is even more godless than
Christmas shopping, although
perhaps just as commercialized.
No one had praying on their
minds, but they were spending a
lot of money.
We began moving away from
the main arena and north on De-
catur Street, past Cafe Du Monde
and toward Marigny.
The farther we walked, the
fewer lost tourists we found and
the more interesting things be-
came. We started seeing fewer
people in sad blue wigs and
feathered boas in exchange for
more intricate garb. Instead of
families and cute couples, we met
crusty kids and street bands.
I got the sense we'd stumbled
into the more interesting side of
the party.
As the sun went down, the
street opened back up for cars to
drive squeamishly over the filth.
Beaded necklaces got caught in
turning tires, popping and spark-
ing as they were crushed. Mounds
of garbage lined the sidewalks,
which were covered in a glisten-
ing, slimy mess of who knows
what. The smell was unholy.
When the clock struck mid-
night, it i,.-.::Ill became Ash
Wednesday. The partiers of Bour-
bon Street were kicked off by a
barrage of police headed by the
kind of religious screamers who
yell their sermons on Turlington
Plaza.
Back on Decatur, some peo-
ple still hung on, dancing in the
streets and on cars while a trav-
eling band played a few tunes.
But the festivities basically were
over.
I expected the party to keep
going. But, nope, that was pretty
much it. Back to Florida I went,
with a handful of beads, a bad
hangover and a few stories that
hold no water to those of Charlie
Sheen.
But at least I got laid.

leans on Tuesday.

have been a disappointment since Big
12 play started, but with a little luck,
they have the potential to upset any-
body. Coach Mike Anderson, who
worked at Arkansas during the 40
Minutes of Hell days, implements a
nasty press that has keyed a couple
unexpected runs in past tournaments.
Remember 2004, when Anderson
led UAB past No. 1 Kentucky in the
second round? Or how about 2009,


when No. 3-seed Mizzou fell minutes short of the Final Four?
Cincinnati, I'm putting you on notice. And Connecticut,
watch yourself. You're next.

FLORIDA FORECAST: The Gators could not have scored a
much luckier draw. If the opening weekend goes chalk, UF will
have a pretty favorable Sweet Sixteen matchup against BYU.
The hot-shooting Stormin' Mormons could have made a
deep run, but Brandon Davies was seduced by a real Fanny
Alger - if you know what I mean. While Davies was search-
ing for treasure like Joseph Smith, BYU's national title hopes
tanked.
Florida will walk off the court winners, and Billy Donovan
will be as popular as top Utah citizens Deron Williams, Matt
Stone and Trey Parker. You bastards!
But that is as far as Florida will get. A loss two days later
will keep the Gators from their fifth Final Four trip.

Vegas trip for Big Dance yields more than simply March Madness


4 I ed, are you sitting me? Vegas,
|I four days, all expenses paid for
_t the NCAA Championship. Out of
sight. Yeah, I'm definitely in."
Red, my bookmaking partner, makes me
seem Spartan. With him, anything done to ex-
cess equals success.
If Red lifts the phone, he bets $10,000. He
bets everything:: -..rl: :II hoops, hockey, base-
ball - anything.
Red bets with a big-time Brooklyn bookie,
Dennis.
Because he's a gambler, Dennis vacations
in Vegas. He takes action all year, then relaxes
by gambling.
I've watched Dennis throw craps. He cov-
ers every number with 5-large, then backs up
his initial bets with $5,000 more by taking the
"free odds."
That's $60,000 a roll.
During a four-day holiday, Dennis donates
Dumpsters of money to casinos. Casinos treat
Dennis well.
Because Red's betting allows Dennis to
finance his own compulsion, he tells Red,
"Come with me to Vegas. Bring anyone you
want. Just sign my name. Everything's on the
house."
Red and I are partners and great friends,
but no way can I compete with his appetite for
drugs, women or gambling.
Red needs a babysitter. He thinks I'm right
for the job.
Screw that. I'll nip this in the bud.
I pack my bag, set the alarm for 6 a.m. and
head for my local pub. The dilettante behind
the bar over serves me.
Paralyzed, I pass out on my couch at 5
a.m.
When the alarm rings, I awake, dressed
and drunk. I head for Vegas.
The cab driver drops me at Stewart Interna-


tional Airport where Red awaits.
"Where the hell you been, man? I was wor-
ried about you. I didn't think you were going
to make it. Jesus Christ, you're shitfaced. It's
6:30 a.m. How did you get whacked so fast?"
"I'm still drunk from last night. I need a
screwdriver or a Bloody Mary or something.
I'm f***ing dying."
We board the plane and are assigned the
last two seats on the left aisle in the back.
I gasp to the stewardess, "How soon before
I can get a drink?"
She laughs, "Shortly after airborne, we'll
start cocktail service."
True to her word, after we lift off, she starts
hauling me and Red screwdrivers.
We start slamming screwdrivers as if the
aircraft is delivering us to the gallows. The
sugar from the vodka and O.J. resurrects me.
I shift to full party mode. I'm laughing, but
obnoxious.
It's not yet 8 a.m. Old ladies crowd these
junkets to play slots. I can feel intense, nasty
stares.
Being a :._ II', ..- -i r drunk, I begin breaking
balls. I lean forward and yell, "Come on, you
old goats, loosen up. You're on your way to
Vegas for Christ's sake."
I'm so whacked even Red's embarrassed.
I laugh loud and hard. When it happens, I
can't catch my breath. When I try, the air intake
sounds like a hyena. The laugh is either infec-
tious or annoying. It depends on the amount
of whiskey poured.
At the moment, it's unbearable.
To avoid me, Red rises and chats up the
two stewardesses. He tells the girls that he and
I are heading to Vegas to bet $200,000 on the
championship game and paints a charming
fairytale about the attach case in the overhead
being stuffed with the "mob's" money.
Airlines were still civilized in 1992, so the


Bill O'Connor
Confessions of a
New York Bookie
sports@alligator org


stewardesses are gull-
ible knockouts.
After a couple hours
on the plane, most
passengers have had
enough. Red and I are
laughing away, still
pounding screwdriv-
ers, when a foghorn
voice stuns me.
"You the two guys
making all the noise


back here?"
I squint through the boozy fog. My one
good eye rests on what appears to be a hairy,
dungaree-clad cement truck.
We're going to have a beef, and this guy
seems to have us outnumbered. He's the
whole package: motorcycle boots, spiked
leather wristbands, chains - a central casting
Hell's Angel.
Then, a surprise.
"You guys sound like fun. Here's my con-
tribution."
He extends his hand and places in mine
a lovely montage of pharmaceuticals, reds,
blues, yellows.
I'm relieved and say, "Thanks, man. You're
a sport."
I chase them down with a belt from the
screwdriver.
I wake up and glance first at my watch,
then at the three crumbled-up bills on the
night stand. What happened? Where am I?
It's 9:30 p.m. I'm in a hotel room.
"Oh, shit, the game."
I need a drink.
I hit the shower and head for the nearest
bar. I hear screaming coming from the packed
lounge. The circular bar is wrapped around
four TV sets, all tuned to the championship
game.


I wade through clouds of tobacco smoke
and spot Red roaring between the two stew-
ardesses from our flight.
"W hat the hell :.' ' ....'" - I ask, - ...I111',
up next to the blonde.
"Oh my God. We thought you'd get us
fired. No one could wake you up. We took you
off the plane in a wheelchair."
"A wheelchair? Jesus Christ. Then why are
you two here?"
"Well, before you passed out, you were a
lot of fun."
Halftime rolls around, and Mike Krzyze-
wski's Blue Devils are crushing Michigan, so
I finally grab Red's attention.
"Hey man, fill me in later on how you got
me up to the hotel room. Meanwhile, how
does that expense account thing work?"
He says, "Just eat and drink wherever you
want in the hotel, then sign Dennis' name and
room number."
"Cool. Hey girls, you want to have a bite
to eat?"
Three hours later, the check for $1,400 in-
cludes steaks, wine, champagne and buckets
of Courvoisier V.S.O.P.
After our feast, the girls and I enter the ca-
sino. Three security guards have a drunken,
angry Red at the wrong end of their revolvers.
I freeze at the entrance then pirouette 180 de-
grees. I don't stutter.
"Come on, girls. This is no place for us. Let
me show you my hotel room."
Red never calls me to baby-sit anymore.
Somehow, I feel cheap and used. Where did
I go wrong?

HOW THEY GOT HERE: COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON IN REVIEW


BIG 12


BIG TEN


BIG EAST


Regular-season champion:
Kansas (32-2, 14-2)
Tournament champion:
Kansas, defeated Texas 85-73 in the final
How they did it:
Kansas dominated opponents on the interior thanks
to junior twins Marcus and Markieff Morris. The
frontcourt duo averaged a combined 30.9 points
and 15.4 rebounds per game.
Player of the Year:
Marcus Morris, Kansas junior forward (17.3 points,
7.2 rebounds per game)

PACIFIC-10

Regular-season champion:
Arizona (27-7, 14-4)
How they did it:
Derrick Williams carried the Wildcats all season
long, as he was the only player to average double
figures in scoring with 19.1 points per game. He
also led the team in rebounds and blocks per game,
while shooting 61.5 percent from the field and an
incredible 60.3 percent from three.
Tournament champion:
Washington (23-10, 11-7), defeated Arizona 77-75
in the final
How they did it:
After an underwhelming regular season, the talent-
ed Huskies got hot at the right time, winning three
games in three days to claim the Pac-10 Tourna-
ment championship. Washington was led by the
talented inside-outside duo of senior forward Mat-
thew Bryan-Amaning (15.5 points, 8.1 rebounds per
game) and junior guard Isaiah Thomas (16.8 points,
6 assists per game).
Player of the Year:
Derrick Williams, Arizona sophomore forward (19.1
points, 8.1 rebounds, 0.7 blocks per game)


Regular-season champion:
Ohio State (32-2, 16-2)
Tournament champion:
Ohio State, defeated Penn State 71-60 in the final
How they did it:
The Buckeyes played only seven players but still
had the nation's most complete team. With fresh-
man Jared Sullinger dominating inside and senior
Jon Diebler raining threes, the Buckeyes were the
last remaining unbeaten at 24-0.
Player of the Year:
JaJuan Johnson, Purdue senior center (20.5 points,
8.2 rebounds, 2.3 blocks per game)

SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Regular-season champion:
Florida (26-7, 13-3)
How they did it:
The Gators won the SEC championship with their
balanced scoring, as four players averaged between
11.3 and 14.4 points per game. Senior Chandler
Parsons displayed why he is one of the nation's
most versatile players, leading the team in rebounds
and assists per game.
Tournament champion:
Kentucky (25-8, 10-6), defeated Florida 70-54
How they did it:
As is becoming tradition with John Calipari's teams,
the Wildcats relied on a crop of supremely talented
freshmen. Brandon Knight (17.5 points, 4.2 assists,
4.0 rebounds per game) and Terrence Jones (16.5
points, 9.0 rebounds per game) lead a team that
only gives six players significant minutes.
Player of the Year:
Chandler Parsons, Florida senior forward (11.5
points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists per game)


Regular-season champion:
Pittsburgh (27-5, 15-3)
How they did it:
Pitt grinded out win after win with an experienced
lineup and physical play. The Panthers rank eighth
nationally in rebounding and run their half-court of-
fense as well as any team in the country.
Tournament champion:
Connecticut (26-9, 9-9), defeated Louisville 69-66 in
the final
How they did it:
The Huskies became the first team to ever win five
Big East Tournament games in five days behind a
heroic performance from junior Kemba Walker, who
averaged 23.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.3 assists and
1.9 steals for the season.
Player of the Year:
Ben Hansbrough, Notre Dame senior guard (18.5
points, 4.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds per game)

ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE

Regular-season champion:
North Carolina (26-7, 14-2)
How they did it:
The Tar Heels got off to a relatively disappointing
17-6 start before winning nine consecutive games.
UNC is led by freshman Harrison Barnes, who got
his college career off to a slow start but has aver-
aged 22 points per game in March.
Tournament champion:
Duke (30-4, 13-3), defeated North Carolina 75-58 in
the final
How they did it:
After losing explosive freshman superstar Kyrie Ir-
ving early in the season, the Blue Devils had to lean
heavily on seniors Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler,
who responded in a big way.
Player of the Year:
Nolan Smith, Duke senior guard (21.3 points, 4.6
rebounds, 5.1 assists per game)


NATIONAL STORYLINES


BIG DANCE GETS BIGGER

For the first time ever, the NCAA Tournament
features 68 teams in 2011. The Tournament will
be structured as it normally is, though there will
now be a pair of "First Four" games, where the final
four at-large teams compete for 12 seeds and the
lowest-ranked four conference champions compete
for 16 seeds.


BYU ROLLER COASTER

The Cougars made positive and negative headlines
this season. Led by senior guard Jimmer Fredette,
BYU stormed out to a 27-2 record and a No. 3 rank-
ing. But days after the Cougars completed a sweep
of San Diego State, sophomore forward Brandon
Davies was suspended for the season due to a viola-
tion of BYU's honor code. The Cougars have been a
different team without Davis, finishing the year 3-2.


BIG EAST DOMINANCE

The Big East displayed its strength from top to
bottom, earning an unprecedented 11 bids to the
NCAA tournament. The Big Ten made a late surge
to get seven teams in the field, followed by three
conferences with five (Big 12, ACC and SEC) and
the Pac-10 with three. The Mountain West also
emerged as a national presence, as San Diego State
and BYU earned top-three seeds in the Big Dance.

UF TRACK & FIELD

No. 1 Florida repeats as national indoor champion


By JOE MORGAN
Alligator Writer

The No. 1 Gators faced the
same question week after week
throughout the season. Could
they win back-to-back national
championships?
As coach Mike Holloway
maintained throughout the year,
repeating wasn't a concern for
his team. They were just "focused
on 2011."
But once the repeat was ac-
complished, Florida finally let
loose.
"This is the kind of stuff you
dream about as a kid," heptath-
lon All-American Gray Horn
said. "To go out and do some-
thing incredible."
The Gators won the NCAA
Indoor Championships in Col-
lege Station, Texas, with 52 total
points, 12 more than second-
place and host Texas A&M.
But halfway through the meet,
this weekend's win seemed like it
wouldn't come to fruition.
Florida scored just eight points
Friday with junior Will Claye's
second-place finish in the long
jump, which was lower than Hol-
loway's anticipated 12-15 points.


Things began to look even
more bleak for the top-ranked
Gators when they trailed No.
5 Brigham Young by 16 points


through the first eight events.
"We had a lot of fight in us, and
we showed that," Holloway said.
"We never worry about anybody


else. We just needed to come out
and be Florida. And that's what
we did.
"We had some bad luck,"


The Florida men's track and field team poses after winning the 2011 NCAA Indoor Championships in
College Station, Texas, on Saturday. UF is the fourth team to win consecutive national indoor titles.


Holloway continued. I -.1--lk:.
wanted to know what was wrong
with Florida. There was nothing
wrong with Florida."
Thanks to the efforts of indi-
vidual national champions Claye
(triple jump) and sophomore Jeff
Demps (60m dash), as well as
All-American performances by
Horn (heptathlon), junior Chris-
tian Taylor (triple jump) and
Dumisane Hlaselo (men's mile
run), the Gators scored 34 points
in the final nine events to clinch
the meet.
Gunning for his third consecu-
tive national title in the triple
jump, Taylor finished second to
Claye.
"We had some adversity,"
Holloway said. "But I told them
that true champions respond to
adversity."
In addition to becoming just
the fourth school to win consecu-
tive NCAA Indoor Champion-
ships, UF also saw a few of its
athletes set several records.
Claye set a school and an
NCAA meet record with his
17.32m/56-10 mark in the triple
jump. Horn's 5,890 points in the

Gators sweep Rhode Island


By TOM GREEN
Alligator Writer
tgreen@alligator org

Sunday was like deja vu for Gators fans.
For the second time this season, No. 1 Flori-
da (14-2) fooled its opponent with a hidden-ball
trick in a crucial situation, as UF swept Rhode
Island with an 8-6 win in McKethan Stadium.
Just like when Florida executed the play-
ground trick against Boston College, Sunday's
feat came with two outs and after a game-tying
RBI by the opposing team.
"As long as it keeps working, I'm all right
with it," junior Preston Tucker said. "They had
a lot of momentum going. ... Anything that can
get us out of that inning can help us a ton."
Holding on to a 1-0 lead in the top of the sec-
ond, Florida starter Karsten Whitson (3-0, 2.21
ERA) allowed three straight Rams batters to
reach base, ,I I , -,, catcher Milan Adams then
giving up singles to third baseman Dan Haver-
stick and second baseman Pat Fortunato.
Fortunato singled to center to score Adams,


squaring the game at 1-1 and giving the Rams
two baserunners.
That's when the Gators pulled off the sand-
lot tactic.
Center fielder Bryson Smith bobbled the
ball in the outfield before tossing it to second
baseman Josh Adams, who never gave the ball
back to Whitson.
Moments later, Adams tagged Haverstick
out at second to end the scor-
ing threat and halt the Rams'
momentum.
"I really wasn't planning
on keeping it," Adams said.
"He just kind of got off the
bag, and I tagged him ...
Whenever you can take outs
Adams like that, you do it."
. .11. . '.i,, the play, the
Gators tacked on three unanswered runs over
the next three innings to take a 4-1 advantage.
After closing the gap to 4-3 in the top of the
sixth, it was Adams who again pulled the rug

UF falls to UK in SEC final


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alliagator org

ATLANTA- In the first two games
of the Southeastern Conference Tour-
nament, the Gators were able to over-
come slow starts with dominant sec-
ond halves.
But Sunday, their late-game magic
finally ran out.
No. 15 Kentucky (25-8, 10-6 SEC)
came out of the gate strong and never
let up, outmuscling No. 12 Florida (26-
7, 13-3 SEC) 70-54 to claim the SEC
Tournament Championship.
"The difference, I thought, was we
weren't physical enough," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "I just didn't think
that our frontcourt guys, when they


got the ball, did very much with it."
Starters Alex Tyus and Vernon
Macklin combined for 12 points and
only eight shots, as the Wildcats de-
nied post feeds and forced the Gators'
big men away from the rim.
Florida was
, equally ineffective
driving the ball to
the hoop, which led
Men's to Kentucky taking
29 free throws to
Basketball Florida's eight.
"The game was
won at the free-throw line," Donovan
said. "When someone takes 21 more
free throws than you, it's hard to over-
come."
The Gators' inability to score from

UF storms past AU


By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

While one member of the UF
women's tennis program received
recognition for a career-spanning
achievement Sunday, another
found her first success of the sea-
son.
Before the No. 1 Gators lined up
to face Auburn at Linder Stadium,
UF coach Roland Thornqvist was
recognized for his 300th career win,
which came Feb. 18 over Miami.
Thornqvist humbly accepted a
plaque for his achievement before
Florida (15-1, 4-0) breezed through
a quick 4-0 dismantling of the Ti-
gers (2-12, 0-4).
The Gators continued their suc-
cess on the doubles courts, coming
up with wins on Courts 2 and 3
only 47 minutes after play began
as all three Gators doubles pairing
overpowered their opponents.
Lauren Embree and Joanna
Mather overcame a slow start and
put together the best showing on


Court 2. They quickly turned a 3-0
deficit into a 7-3 lead, then wrapped
up the match with an 8-4 win.
But the highlight of the day
came when sophomore Brittany
Borsanyl saw her first singles ac-
tion of the season.
Borsanyl matched up with Au-
burn's Taylor Cohen on Court 6
in her first singles match since last


April.


Tennis


"[Brittany]
played what I
thought was flawless
tennis," Thornqvist
said. "She made
good decisions with
the ball and looked


as sharp as she has in the two years
she's been at Florida."
Borsanyl left with a 6-0, 6-1 vic-
tory, exemplifying the efficient at-
titude Thornqvist has consistently
looked for in his team this season.
"It was an amazing feeling to be
out there," Borsanyl said. "That's
probably what made me play so
well."


UF SOFTBALL

Gators bounce back, rout Bulls


By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

While it wasn't a perfect weekend, it was cer-
tainly close.
After losing to No. 16 Nebraska on Saturday,
the No. 2 Florida softball team (25-1, 2-0 SEC) re-
sponded with a 10-2 drubbing of South Florida to
finish a 4-1 weekend at the USF Under Armour
Showcase in Clearwater.
The Gators rebounded in a big way with nine
hits, including three home runs, after being shut
out for the first time all season Saturday.
Led by the hot hitting of Megan Bush, UF scored
double-digit runs for the eighth time this year.
The senior first baseman was a force all week-
end, launching three home runs, including a solo
shot in the third inning against the Bulls.
She added a sacrifice fly in the fourth and a sin-
gle in the sixth, pushing her average to .451.
"This weekend, I was seeing the ball better
than I ever have before," she said. "My approach
has been much more relaxed, especially with two
strikes."
The two hitters in front of Bush, Kelsey Bruder
and Brittany Schutte, continued to frustrate oppos-
ing pitchers.

ances and didn't stop there.
The left fielder scored three runs on three walks
and a single, even stealing a base, while Schutte
showed off her signature power with a three-run


homer in the third and a double in the fourth.
As one of the most experienced players on the
team, Bush makes it her job to carry the lineup even
when the younger players have struggles.

can get better pitches," she said. "I've always put
a lot of pressure on myself, but now, I'm trying to

Gators confident poor showing vs. Kentucky won't carry into Tournament


BASKETBALL, from page 1

Over the course of the season, the Gators have found
that losses force them to take a closer look at the things
they can do to get better.
After victories, the team typically focuses on keeping
its momentum going instead of evaluating its imperfec-
tions. The Gators have yet to drop back-to-back games
this season.
"When you win, I think it doesn't show the mistakes
that you made in games," sophomore guard Kenny Boyn-
ton said.
"We can watch this film, see the mistakes that we made
and correct them to be ready for the first round of the
NCAA Tournament."


Before the selection, the team was adamant that its
seeding was irrelevant. But the Gators admitted location
would be significant.
Of the eight potential regional sites,
Tampa was by far the closest.
"I would think we could have the
most fans and be able to pack the house,"
Walker said. "It's always good to have."
Still, Donovan and his players em-
phasized that every team is strong at this
stage of the season, and each game will
Walker be hotly contested.
The Gators figure to be prepared, as
they are confident that one bad showing won't affect the
way they've played over the past month.


"This will blow over," Boynton said. "We're going to
get right back to where we were."
Returning to form will be critical, as the Gators will
face the UCLA-Michigan State winner with a victory over
UCSB.
If seeding holds, Florida would square off against BYU
in the Sweet Sixteen and Pittsburgh in the Elite Eight.
"It's definitely a whole new season," Walker said. "Ev-
erybody is 0-0, and it's new life. We've just got to be ready
to go."
If their words are any indication, the Gators are pre-
pared for Thursday and beyond.
"You have to come out ready to play like it's the last
game you're ever going to play," freshman center Patric
Young said.


Trick play shifts momentum; Adams drives in three

out from under URI. The senior belt-
ed a bases-clearing, three-RBI double
to center to extend UF's lead to 7-3.
"Momentum kind of swung our
way," said Adams, who led the
Gators with seven RBIs on the week-
end. "It was one of those things to get
the team going and give everybody
a little comfort feeling there at the
end."
URI threatened to nullify Adams'
efforts in the final two frames, as the


Rams tagged freshman righty Matt
C j-', . I I for three runs in the eighth
before right-hander Anthony DeS-
clafani (1.50 ERA) came in from the
,_ bullpen to record his
second save of the
season.
DeSclafani pitched
Baseball 1.1 scoreless innings
but allowed two run-
ners to reach base in
the ninth before striking out pinch
hitter Greg Annarummo, giving the
Gators their fourth straight weekend


series sweep to open the season.

ETC.: The Gators tied a season high
by stranding 12 runners on base, nine
of whom were left in scoring posi-
tion. ... Mike Zunino is 4 for 4 steal-
ing bases this season after swiping
second in the fourth. ... The Gators'
14-2 start matches their best since
1992. ... Righty Keenan Kish made
his collegiate debut Saturday, while
junior right-hander Justin Poovey
made his first appearance Friday.
Both tossed scoreless ninth innings.


Scoreless stretches, outside shooting halt UF's run


HOOPS, from page 21

the line proved to be critical, as they also struggled from
the field.
Florida shot just 38.6 percent for the game, includ-
ing a combined 7 for 26 from guards Erving Walker and
Kenny Boynton.
"We weren't aggressive enough attacking the paint,"
Walker said. "You're not going to shoot the ball well
every game. ... You've just got to battle through that."
Florida managed to keep it close with strong defense,
holding Kentucky to just 41.7 percent shooting.

The Gators hit a few major slumps in the contest, go-
ing scoreless for a 7:09 stretch in the first half and a 5:28
stretch in the second half.
"I don't think they did anything different from when
we played them a couple of weeks ago, but I think they
did a great job," Boynton said.
Freshman Scottie Wilbekin sparked UF with eight
points in a 1:15 stretch despite entering Sunday scoring
2.5 points per game.
After Florida took a 24-21 lead, the Wildcats re-
sponded with a 10-0 run to gain an advantage they
would never relinquish.

You Decide. [ %R MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 Gators earn No. 2 seed in NCAA Tournament 0 UF WILL PLAY UCSB IN TAMPA ON THURSDAY. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org ATLANTAJust hours after a crushing defeat in the finals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament, the Gators found new life. With Sunday's announcement of the 2011 NCAA Tournament field came the revelation that Florida received the No. 2 seed in the Southeast region, a higher spot than widely predicted. The Gators will face 15-seed University of California Santa Barbara on Thursday in Tampa. "We are really excited about being in the NCAA Tournament," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I'm very happy for our players and our staff for the opportunity to compete." Florida will head into the matchup hoping to rebound from Sunday's 70-54 loss to Kentucky. Playing perhaps their best basketball of the season, the Gators entered the contest on a fourgame winning streak but fell one win short of sweeping the SEC championships. "It hurts, but we've been here before," senior forward Chandler Parsons said. "We're not going to hang our heads after one loss. "We want to make a run in the Tournament. It hurts right now, and I'm sure it's going to hurt later, but we've got to move past that and look forward." "We are really excited about being in the NCAA Tournament. I'm very happy for our players and our staff for the opportunity to compete." Billy Donovan UF men's basketball coach The Gators are 6-0 following losses so far this season and have won those contests by an average of 19.3 points per game. This trend is not lost on Donovan or his players, who have spoken all year about how well they handle adversity. "We're a resilient group, and, if anything, this will help us focus that much more in practice," junior guard Erving Walker said.

The UF business school jumped 13 spots from 2010 to place 42nd in Bloomberg BusinessWeek's 2011 ranking of 113 undergraduate business programs in the nation's colleges and universities. It is the highest ranking for the school since the magazine began ranking programs six years ago.

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 ON CAMPUS UF researcher outlines strategy to save bananas By REBECCA DANTA Alligator Contributing Writer The banana plant may be at risk of extinction due to the spread of a disease. Randy Ploetz, a researcher at UF's Tropical Research and Education Center in south Florida, has created a six-part plan which he is sharing with the banana industry to prevent the spread of the disease to the Western Hemisphere. Tropical Race 4, a variant of Panama disease, destroyed entire banana plantations in Southeast Asia in 1990. If the disease spreads to South America, there would be a significant impact on Florida consumers who rely on imports of the fruit because of Florida's unfavorable environment for growing bananas. Ploetz said if the disease does spread to South America, the Cavendish banana people know today would become extinct. "I don't have a crystal ball, so I don't know when it's going to happen," he said. "But what has happened in the past with diseases like this is they do move." Ploetz's plan lays out strategies on how to keep Tropical Race 4 out of America and what to do in the case of an outbreak. He aims to educate banana producers, researchers and anyone involved with the banana market in the Western Hemisphere. "This affects virtually anyone who consumes the typical Chiquita banana seen in grocery stores." Randy Ploetz researcher at UF's Tropical Research and Education Center "My goal is to let people know that this thing is lurking," he said. "They need to be prepared on how to keep it away and what to do when it comes." Ploetz said if the disease spreads to the Western Hemisphere, it will wipe out entire banana plantations in countries such as Ecuador, where bananas are the biggest export. "This affects virtually anyone who consumes the typical Chiquita banana seen in grocery stores," he said. Movie festival kicks off By SHELLEY GREENSPAN Alligator Contributing writer Gainesville's first Jewish Film Festival starts today and is designed to entertain and educate the Gainesville community on Jewish culture. The festival kicks off tonight with a screening of "The Yankles," a movie about a washed-up, ex-professional baseball player who gets a second chance at life and love by managing a Jewish orthodox yeshiva baseball team. Presented by the UF Hillel, the Gainesville Jewish Film Festival presents a dynamic and exciting perception of Judaism and the global Jewish community, according to organizers. Amanda Solomon, the arts director for UF Hillel's student leadership board and the main coordinator behind the event, said she hopes the film festival will highlight Jewish culture worldwide as well as erase negative stereotypes people tend to cling to. Each night has a specific theme based on the importance to Jewish history and Jewish identity as a whole. For six nights, broad themes, such as "social action" and "Jews in sports," were chosen to ensure everyone can connect to the films in some way, Solomon said. In addition to the film, there will be a speaker featured after each screening. All screenings are free and open to the public and Multicultural will take place at Affairs the Hippodrome Theatre from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. The festival runs through March 29. Jeannie Bobroff, a member of Gainesville's Jewish community, said the film festival will inspire many local Jewish residents to get involved in the community. "Alarge-scale event like this film festival is just what the community needs to be proud of where they're from," Bobroff said. / OFF Jiffy Lube Signature Service 8; Oil Change No Coupon Needed!

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 City elections will take place Tuesday 12 UF students were in Japan last week JAPAN, from page 1 off the shelves but she saw a 7-story building sway like a palm tree in a hurricane. She fell asleep in her dorm room to the rocking of aftershocks, which she stopped feeling around midnight. She had read how-to booklets on what to do during an earthquake, but she said they didn't help much. "I feel like I wasn't really prepared, so I was probably lucky that I was at the store, where people knew what to do," she said. She said none of the buildings near her fell, mainly because newer Japanese buildings are made to withstand strong earthquakes. Taka Hamada, a 23-year-old UF journalism junior, said he couldn't believe what had happened. His mom and younger sisters live in Hiroshima, which is on the country's west coast. He said they are safe. He kept watching news broadcasts and saw the death count and floating bodies. "It's cliche, but it's like a movie," he said. "It's like something that you never expect to happen in Japan." ELECTIONS, from page 1 election for District 2. Susan Bottcher, who is running for the District 3 seat, said comfortable shoes are essential for campaign season, especially during weekends when she walks door to door talking to as many Gainesville voters as she can. District 3 candidate Rob Zeller said the busiest part has been the dozen or so forums and paper questionnaires. "They take a lot more time to answer than I thought," he said. But for most candidates, campaigning hasn't been just hectic. Sacrifices have been made. "I haven't seen my kids much in the last four weeks," said Zeller, who has three young children. "My daughter wants to see me more. His 5-year-old daughter, Lily, will have a birthday soon after the election, and he doesn't want to miss it. But if there's a run-off, he'll be swamped again. "If there's another election, then I have to get back to the grindstone," he said. For James Ingle, who's running for a seat in District 2, wedding planning has been delayed. "I am engaged to the most patient woman in the world," he said of his fiancee and campaign manager, Trisha Dunne. The wedding itself is still on track for April 19, but Ingle said the campaign has made an already hectic process even more stressful. While many candidates carefully are budgeting their time with the typical campaign activities, one has taken a different approach. Selwach said he decided not to take donations from anyone, so he has no need for fundraisers. He put $2,500 of his own money into his campaign. He also said he doesn't want to clutter up people's mailboxes with junk, so he didn't make campaign fliers. Nor has he campaigned door to door. "Do you like it when you're at home and someone comes and knocks on your door?" he asked. "No, you don't." He's christened his store, Best Jewelry and Loan Pawnbroker, as his official campaign base. There, he meets with citizens and makes his case. Candidates said campaigning has taught them about what they can accomplish. Campaigning even can be fun. Angulo, another candidate for District 3, said he and his team were relatively inexperienced but still were able to pull off some victories, such as locking up an endorsement from the African American Accountability Alliance. When they found out, Angulo and GainesvillesCity his campaign manager were speechCommission111 less in their elation. "We just looked at each other for a second, because we couldn't believe we'd won it," he said. Selwach said he had fun at the Tea Party forum and felt relaxed. During the forum, he stood up and declared himself to be "Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker," a parallel to "Joe the Plumber" from the 2008 presidential election. Ingle said he's become close friends with people he didn't even know before he started running. Because of this, he doesn't mind going door to door every weekend and most weekdays. In fact, he said he enjoys it. "People are great. I'd say nine out of 10 of them want to talk to you about the city," he said.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 Run-on Sentence Delaying restoration of felons' rights a crime e understand that people forfeit some of their rights when they break the law. It's just, and it's part of the due punishment our justice system provides. However, we were left scratching our heads Wednesday, when Florida's state clemency board made it harder for nonviolent felons to regain those rights upon release from prison. Just four years ago, former Gov. Charlie Crist saw a problem with the massive delays in restoring the rights to vote, run for public office, sit on a jury or hold specific occupational licenses. He granted these felons immediate restoration of their rights -and by "immediate," we mean it would take months or years for the paperwork to work its way through Florida bureaucracy. Gov. Rick Scott sees things differently, as does Attorney General Pam Bondi. They, along with other members of the board, decided people who have served their time and followed court orders would have an additional sentence tacked on to jail time and restitution: five years of revoked rights. That's five years before they can even begin jumping through hoops to get the rights back. It's five years before people who normal society has a vested interest in re-assimilating can again start feeling like a normal citizen. We fail to understand the board's reasoning for this change in policy. In fact, with his vague talk and secrecy surrounding the decision, we suspect the governor himself doesn't have a decent reason for it. There has been talk that the members of the board Simply wanted to pull strings to ensure a disproportionate e black and Democrat voting block was eliminated from the upcoming elections. The Miami Herald even went as far as to call the policy change a return to Jim Crow laws, stating that the state has "gone back a century." Whether that's true and whether people agree with the board's decision have yet to be seen, but we are alarmed by the secrecy that surrounded the change. Meeting to vote on a proposal made public only at the beginning of the same meeting doesn't sound like the Florida's fabled "Government in the Sunshine" to us. Just the opposite: It sounds like shady business. We hoped the board members would understand the idea of a deliberate government and at least give the opposition time to gather its thoughts and speak on a given issue. Instead, the governor and his ilk are using the finesse of a steamroller and the speed of a jet to reshape the state to fit their vision. When Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam voiced his concerns -albeit weakly -over the speed at which the board was moving, it should have sent up red flags. His objection and near-immediate coalescence speaks volumes about Gov. Scott's modus operandi. Even if Floridians haven't noticed it yet, our governor is working to get what he likes, not what the people need or want. And that's a scary reality. l the independent florida Paul Runnestrand EDITOR Elizabeth Behrman Joshua Saval MANAGING EDITORS Cynthia Despres 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 wiii 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?

ALLIGATOR www.aIligator.org/opinion 3 e WAS 'MAT KNIFE tO PLUNGED iNTo WS ACK ANT TO WAt Himf U)NIONSV Freedom, fairness support traditional marriage reedom and fairness are two of the bedrock principles upon which our nation was founded. As such, they provide potent pressure against any who appear to disfavor them. For this very reason, people who advocate for gay marriage have sought to coopt these ideas and claim them as their own. What many people who favor traditional marriage fail to recognize is that these advocates are, in fact, correct. The debate surrounding the definition of marriage does ultimately depend on fundamental freedoms and fairness. However, these two cornerstones of American society favor a traditional definition of marriage. How is this? It's simple. Every American, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, is entitled to certain fundamental freedoms, and society has accommodated these freedoms and balanced its interests against those of the individual. Marriage is, essentially, a state-sanctioned institution with societal rights and responsibilities accompanying its unique status. Thus, our society has a vested interest in maintaining the institution's integrity. What is this interest, though? Is it the stability of the institution? Although this argument has merit, it falls short. Consider that interracial marriage was once expressly forbidden, but it is widely accepted today. Is it the economic aspect of marriage? Again, this argument might have merit, but it is weak. Economic reasons are seldom sufficient when discussing issues of fundamental freedoms and fairness. Zack Smith letters@alligatororg Is it to protect the rights of the parties involved with -or incident to -the marriage? This answer is closer to the truth. Keep in mind that the state provides tax benefits for the marriage. It also oversees probate proceedings when one partner in the marriage dies. It even enforces child support and custody agreements when a marriage, sadly, fails. Perhaps, though, the answer lies in none of these arguments. Our society's most compelling interest in maintaining the integrity of marriage is that this institution is one of the hallmarks which itself defines a society. Thus, fairness dictates that every member of our society has an equal voice to determine what the definition of something as fundamental as marriage will be. At the moment, society has accepted the traditional view that marriage is between only one man and one woman. This prevailing view may change, though, as the electorate becomes increasingly younger. Because of this possibility of change, the people who favor traditional marriage must continue to advocate for their beliefs. They must embrace the powerful ideas of freedom and fairness by encouraging others to exercise their voices in advocating for a traditional definition of marriage.

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Obama's Guantanamo about-face a necessary concession President Barack Obama on Monday rescinded his twoyear-old directive banning military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay. In a new executive order, Obama clears the way for resuming military trials at the naval base. This is regrettable, considering the president campaigned on -and committed to, once taking office -closing Guantanamo within a year of his inauguration. Still, the concession is a prudent one. Guantanamo is a nearly impossible issue, one that may be black-and-white in moral terms but is very gray in practice, and the reforms that the president has included in his most recent order alleviate much of what Americans have found so distasteful regarding the military base. In order to deal with the 172 prisoners currently detained at the naval base, the new executive order reinstates a system allowing prisoners to be tried by military courts. Numerous obstacles have stood in the way of trying prisoners in civilian Tufts Daily court and have forced them into legal Editorial Board limbo and indeterminate detention. i B The new executive order remedies this UWire by allowing prisoners either to be tried on-site by a military tribunal or to make a plea bargain. Because many detainees were tortured to obtain information, evidence gained from such tactics would be thrown out in court, weakening the prospect of conviction. The new order attempts to solve this problem by requiring compliance with international treaties barring inhumane treatment. But a fundamental problem remains: Because evidence obtained under duress is inadmissible -even in these military tribunals -the government faces a "Sophie's choice" between releasing or illegally detaining people it reasonably believes to be terrorist threats. This is the problem of Guantanamo. Perhaps most important of all, the order establishes a process of periodic review by several federal agencies of the prisoners' threat to our security. This will decide whether prisoners should be tried, released or transferred to another country. Nonetheless, the new executive order fails to address many core issues pertaining to Guantanamo. Administration officials have insisted that the president remains committed to closing the base in the near future, but the order sheds little light on when that will be. And because Obama made it clear that the order only applies to current and not future detainees, it is unclear how the base will be used in coming years. The new decision has left the long-term plans for Guantanamo up in the air. Commendable as this executive order is, it is far from resolving an issue that has remained a sore point in the United States for years. By Tufts Daily Editorial Board, Tufts Daily, Tufts University via UWIRE Generating revenue is real goal of automated traffic tickets ike many functions of the state, authortabve traffic precautions were implemented for the purpose of collecting a revenue stream under the guise of safety. The most outrageous measure has been an effort to squelch driving violations through the use of automated ticketing machines or ATMs. If a motorist runs a red light, a camera takes a picture of the vehicle and then sends a ticket through the mail to crack down on running red lights. Besides the creepy Big Brother implications of these measures, the machines come with a number of reasons to be prohibited. The cameras ignore the basic function of due process by automatically ticketing drivers, relinquishing their ability to immediately contest violations. Most importantly, though, studies show the cameras actually lead to an increase in intersecton accidents in complete opposition of the program's hopes. Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., the company that manufactures ATMs, earns a portion of the revenue, partially to pay for the devices. But even more egregious, this company gets to dictate where the cameras are installed based on a location that is profitable, not necessarily one that promotes greater safety. In line with the profit motive, numerous cities have been caught shortening the duration of yellow Taylor Lutz lights, in a "dangerous UWire fundraising initiative," according to the Huffington Post. Regardless of any benefits from the use of ATMs, the machines ignore the premise of "innocent until proven guilty." Due to the reality that traffic cameras are incapable of differentiating between an automobile owner and the actual driver, the machines send tickets to the owner of the vehicle. In addition, many citizens have been ticketed for taking legal righthand turns, being treated the same as those who blatantly have violated red lights. As the money-making ATMs have been installed in 450 communities nationwide, studies have assessed the effectiveness of these enforcement mechanisms. As many would not expect, the University of South Florida found that traffic cameras "significantly increase crashes and are a ticket to higher insurance premiums." Instead of proceeding through yellow lights, drivers slam on the breaks to avoid tickets and often end up increasing the amount of rear-end collisions at intersections. The state always claims to hold the intent of safety and concern for the citizenry, but this is no solution to traffic control.

8, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14,2011 Uneasy In t e BIg Easy Mardi Gras fails to live up to the hype By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer 'd never been to Mardi Gras before, or even to New Orleans, but I was instructed to expect the worst. I was told men would follow me with beads, begging to see my goodies. I was told urine and alcohol would flow in the streets. I was insane, they said, for going. That would have been awesome if that were the case. I pride myself on my ability to rage and ride the chaos until the booze wave drowns us all. But Fat Tuesday wasn't exactly what I expected. I arrived Monday evening and checked into my fancy hotel near the French quarter. My rag-tag foursome was only slightly out of place among the old and rich. They were dressed for the opera; we were dressed for a zombie apocalypse. We got ready in our room, then headed out for Zoolu, a warehouse rave in the central business district. But first we made a detour to Bourbon Street, the fabled Mardi Gras headquarters. The street was barricaded, shut down and filled with stumbling, doe-eyed drunks. Men leered from centuries-old balconies, pointing and shouting at girls on the street to show their breasts for plastic beads. The girls giggled and said, "Me?" Everyone drank fruity iced cocktails from tall, skinny plastic goblets and wore blinking jewelry bought from strolling light-uptoy vendors. Though there was a general sense of lawlessness and a faint smell of ganja, none of it felt spontaneous or out of control. Bourbon Street was a dirty, boozefueled Disney World that smelled like vomit and human waste. We moved toward Canal Street through the hoard of revelers and past mounted police officers to our final party destination, which was packed with thousands of young people. My friends and I danced and goofed off while acrobatic girls dangled from the ceiling. Some crazy man in a wacky bodysuit blew up a giant plastic bubble, then danced his way inside of it. The show went on until 3 a.m., and then we moved to another Cars drive over beads and trash left behind from a parade on Canal Street in New Orleans on Tuesday. club for the after-party, hanging out in VIP until about 6 a.m., when we decided it was time to hit the road. I woke up on Fat Tuesday sometime after noon to the sound of parades outside my window. When I made it to the street, I found the whole town taken over by every kind of person in the world. Instead of cars, bright and colorful floats with different themes drove down the streets, hip-hop and top-40 songs blasting from their speakers. Riders cheered, threw things and waved. Candy, beaded necklaces and confetti showered the bystanders of all ages. About 1 million people attended. I reflected on the fact that this is a religious holiday, but Mardi Gras is even more godless than Christmas shopping, although perhaps just as commercialized. No one had praying on their minds, but they were spending a lot of money. We began moving away from the main arena and north on Decatur Street, past Cafe Du Monde and toward Marigny. The farther we walked, the fewer lost tourists we found and the more interesting things became. We started seeing fewer people in sad blue wigs and feathered boas in exchange for more intricate garb. Instead of families and cute couples, we met crusty kids and street bands. I got the sense we'd stumbled into the more interesting side of the party. As the sun went down, the street opened back up for cars to drive squeamishly over the filth. Beaded necklaces got caught in turning tires, popping and sparking as they were crushed. Mounds of garbage lined the sidewalks, which were covered in a glistening, slimy mess of who knows what. The smell was unholy. When the clock struck midnight, it officially became Ash Wednesday. The partiers of Bourbon Street were kicked off by a barrage of police headed by the kind of religious screamers who yell their sermons on Turlington Plaza. Back on Decatur, some people still hung on, dancing in the streets and on cars while a traveling band played a few tunes. But the festivities basically were over. I expected the party to keep going. But, nope, that was pretty much it. Back to Florida I went, with a handful of beads, a bad hangover and a few stories that hold no water to those of Charlie Sheen. But at least I got laid. Mardi Gras children sit in a stroller on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans on Tuesday. Jordan Streetzel / Alligator A woman climbs on top of her friends to catch more beads on Bourbon Street in New Orleans on Tuesday.

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 alligatorSports columnists give a lesson in NCAA Bracketology FINAL FOUR: Ohio State, UConn, Kansas, Pittsburgh. This year's NCAA Tournament could either prove to be topsy-turvy and upset-filled or predictably chalk. I'm leaning toward the latter at this point, taking three No. 1 seeds and a streaky No. 3 seed. Kemba Walker can send UConn deep into the Tournament on his own, and this is the type of year where an elite player can make a true impact because the field is so weak. While I definitely don't love either team, I'm taking Kansas over Ohio State in the championship game, and the Jayhawks' Marcus and Markieff Morris become the nation's most beloved twins since the Olsens. DARK HORSE: I'm breaking the rules and taking two No. 13 seeds here: Morehead State in the Southwest, and Belmont in the Southeast. There are few players I like more than Eagles big man Kenneth Faried, who averaged 17.6 points, 14.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game while leading Morehead State to a 24-9 record. If Vanderbilt falters to Richmond in the first round Adam Berry and Morehead State upsets Louisville, the Eagles Bad News Berry have a clear route to a Sweet Sixteen matchup aberry@alligator org against Kansas. Twitter @adamdberry Belmont, meanwhile, won 30 games and reeled off 19 victories in the Atlantic Sun. The Bruins haven't lost since Jan. 25. While I love No. 4-seed Wisconsin's red-headed, Jewish sensation Mike Bruesewitz, Belmont is more than capable of earning a Sweet Sixteen date with Pitt by beating the Badgers and either Kansas State or Utah State in the second round. FLORIDA FORECAST: While they certainly seemed worthy with a four-game winning streak leading up to Sunday's loss to Kentucky, the Gators were fortunate to pull out a No. 2 seed -and even luckier to be placed where they are. The Southeast sets up well for Florida, which can breeze by UCSB in its first game. If Michigan State finds its footing, the Spartans could be a difficult draw in the next round, but UF is cohesive enough to advance. BYU would have presented a thrilling rematch in the Sweet Sixteen, but the loss of Brandon Davies will likely keep the Cougars from moving past the first weekend. UF, then, should have its way with St. John's provided a last-minute switch of venue to Madison Square Garden. The Gators' remarkable run will come to an end, however, against Pitt in the Elite Eight. FINAL FOUR: March Madness is back, and you know what that means: It's time to make "educated" predictions on games that involve two teams you have never even seen bounce a basketball before. So, I might as well throw out my wild opinion: Ohio State, UConn, Kansas and BYU. That doesn't sound too crazy. But I like the idea of Kemba Walker and Jimmer Fredette carrying their teams deep into the tournament. DARK HORSE: Beln Anthony Chiang Chiang Reaction achiang@alligatororg Twitter @Chianrg-Reaction This team has won Tournament games in the past, and it has the depth to make a run this season. Eleven of Belmont's players average double-digit minutes. FLORIDA FORECAST: The Gators have pretty good depth too. As a No. 2 seed for the first time since 2003, Florida finds itself in prime position to do some damage this time around. The Gators should get out of Tampa and to the Sweet Sixteen without a problem, but that's where it will end for them. A rematch against Jimmer and BYU is sure to await them in the third round. And as you can see by my Final Four predictions, I think the Gators will lose that game. It has been a good year for Florida, but it is a little over its head with a No. 2 seed. UF's shooting is too inconsistent to make a deep run. I don't think a team that loses to Jacksonville and UCF should ever be rewarded with such a high seed. BYU will expose that and will end UF's season for the second consecutive year. FINAL FOUR: Ohio State, Kansas, Pittsburgh and San Diego State. You don't need to be reminded about that time the Buckeyes walked into Gainesville and cruised to an 18-point victory. Kansas will be cared, like it has all year, by the Morris twins. You never root against twins. They're just too cute. Pitt is as tough as any team in the nation. As long as they keep the score close late in the second half, you have to believe the Panthers' guards will be able to carry them to victory. And San Diego State? Why not. It just seems like the Final Four would be more fun with them at the party. Tyler Jett The Jett Stream tjett@alligator org Twitter @JettStreamin DARK HORSE: Missouri. The Tigers have been a disappointment since Big 12 play started, but with a little luck, they have the potential to upset anybody. Coach Mike Anderson, who worked at Arkansas during the 40 Minutes of Hell days, implements a nasty press that has keyed a couple unexpected runs in past tournaments. Remember 2004, when Anderson led UAB past No. 1 Kentucky in the second round? Or how about 2009, when No. 3-seed Mizzou fell minutes short of the Final Four? Cincinnati, I'm putting you on notice. And Connecticut, watch yourself. You're next. FLORIDA FORECAST: The Gators could not have scored a much luckier draw. If the opening weekend goes chalk, UF will have a pretty favorable Sweet Sixteen matchup against BYU. The hot-shooting Stormin' Mormons could have made a deep run, but Brandon Davies was seduced by a real Fanny Alger -if you know what I mean. While Davies was searching for treasure like Joseph Smith, BYU's national title hopes tanked. Florida will walk off the court winners, and Billy Donovan will be as popular as top Utah citizens Deron Williams, Matt Stone and Trey Parker. You bastards! But that is as far as Florida will get. A loss two days later will keep the Gators from their fifth Final Four trip. I

14, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 Vegas trip for Big Dance yields mo re than simply March Madness 47 ed, are you shitting me? Vegas, four days, all expenses paid for tRthe NCAA Championship. Out of sight. Yeah, I'm definitely in." Red, my bookmaking partner, makes me seem Spartan. With him, anything done to excess equals success. If Red lifts the phone, he bets $10,000. He bets everything: football, hoops, hockey, baseball -anything. Red bets with a big-time Brooklyn bookie, Dennis. Because he's a gambler, Dennis vacations in Vegas. He takes action all year, then relaxes by gambling. I've watched Dennis throw craps. He covers every number with 5-large, then backs up his initial bets with 55,000 more by taking the "free odds." That's $60,000 a roll. During a four-day holiday, Dennis donates Dumpsters of money to casinos. Casinos treat Dennis well. Because Red's betting allows Dennis to finance his own compulsion, he tells Red, "Come with me to Vegas. Bring anyone you want. Just sign my name. Everything's on the house." Red and I are partners and great friends, but no way can I compete with his appetite for drugs, women or gambling. Red needs a babysitter. He thinks I'm right for the job. Screw that. I'll nip this in the bud. I pack my bag, set the alarm for 6 a.m. and head for my local pub. The dilettante behind the bar over serves me. Paralyzed, I pass out on my couch at 5 a.m. When the alarm rings, I awake, dressed and drunk. I head for Vegas. The cab driver drops me at Stewart International Airport where Red awaits. "Where the hell you been, man? I was worried about you. I didn't think you were going to make it. Jesus Christ, you're shitfaced. It's 6:30 a.m. How did you get whacked so fast?" "I'm still drunk from last night. I need a screwdriver or a Bloody Mary or something. I'm f***ng dying." We board the plane and are assigned the last two seats on the left aisle in the back. I gasp to the stewardess, "How soon before I can get a drink?" She laughs, "Shortly after airborne, we'll start cocktail service." True to her word, after we lift off, she starts hauling me and Red screwdrivers. We start slamming screwdrivers as if the aircraft is delivering us to the gallows. The sugar from the vodka and O.J. resurrects me. I shift to full party mode. I'm laughing, but obnoxious. It's not yet 8 a.m. Old ladies crowd these junkets to play slots. I can feel intense, nasty stares. Being a belligerent drunk, I begin breaking balls. I lean forward and yell, "Come on, you old goats, loosen up. You're on your way to Vegas for Christ's sake." I'm so whacked even Red's embarrassed. I laugh loud and hard. When it happens, I can't catch my breath. When I try, the air intake sounds like a hyena. The laugh is either infectious or annoying. It depends on the amount of whiskey poured. At the moment, it's unbearable. To avoid me, Red rises and chats up the two stewardesses. He tells the girls that he and I are heading to Vegas to bet $200,000 on the championship game and paints a charming fairytale about the attach case in the overhead being stuffed with the "mob's" money. Airlines were still civilized in 1992, so the Bill O'Connor Confessions of a New York Bookie sports@alligator org stewardesses are gullible knockouts. After a couple hours on the plane, most passengers have had enough. Red and I are laughing away, still pounding screwdrivers, when a foghorn voice stuns me. "You the two guys making all the noise back here?" I squint through the boozy fog. My one good eye rests on what appears to be a hairy, dungaree-clad cement truck. We're going to have a beef, and this guy seems to have us outnumbered. He's the whole package: motorcycle boots, spiked leather wristbands, chains -a central casting Hell's Angel. Then, a surprise. "You guys sound like fun. Here's my contribution." He extends his hand and places in mine a lovely montage of pharmaceuticals, reds, blues, yellows. I'm relieved and say, "Thanks, man. You're a sport." I chase them down with a belt from the screwdriver. I wake up and glance first at my watch, then at the three crumbled-up bills on the night stand. What happened? Where am I? It's 9:30 p.m. I'm in a hotel room. "Oh, shit, the game." I need a drink. I hit the shower and head for the nearest bar. I hear screaming coming from the packed lounge. The circular bar is wrapped around four TV sets, all tuned to the championship game. I wade through clouds of tobacco smoke and spot Red roaring between the two stewardesses from our flight. "What the hell happened?" I ask, saddling up next to the blonde. "Oh my God. We thought you'd get us fired. No one could wake you up. We took you off the plane in a wheelchair." "A wheelchair? Jesus Christ. Then why are you two here?" "Well, before you passed out, you were a lot of fun." Halftime rolls around, and Mike Krzyzewski's Blue Devils are crushing Michigan, so I finally grab Red's attention. "Hey man, fill me in later on how you got me up to the hotel room. Meanwhile, how does that expense account thing work?" He says, "Just eat and drink wherever you want in the hotel, then sign Dennis' name and room number." "Cool. Hey girls, you want to have a bite to eat?" Three hours later, the check for $1,400 includes steaks, wine, champagne and buckets of Courvoisier V.S.O.P. After our feast, the girls and I enter the casino. Three security guards have a drunken, angry Red at the wrong end of their revolvers. I freeze at the entrance then pirouette 180 degrees. I don't stutter. "Come on, girls. This is no place for us. Let me show you my hotel room." Red never calls me to baby-sit anymore. Somehow, I feel cheap and used. Where did I go wrong?

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 HOW THEY GOT HERE: COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON IN REVIEW BIG 12 Regular-season champion: Kansas (32-2, 14-2) Tournament champion: Kansas, defeated Texas 85-73 in the final How they did it: Kansas dominated opponents on the interior thanks to junior twins Marcus and Markieff Morris. The frontcourt duo averaged a combined 30.9 points and 15.4 rebounds per game. Player of the Year: Marcus Morris, Kansas junior forward (17.3 points, 7.2 rebounds per game) PACIFIC-10 Regular-season champion: Arizona (27-7, 14-4) How they did it: Derrick Williams carried the Wildcats all season long, as he was the only player to average double figures in scoring with 19.1 points per game. He also led the team in rebounds and blocks per game, while shooting 61.5 percent from the field and an incredible 60.3 percent from three. Tournament champion: Washington (23-10, 11-7), defeated Arizona 77-75 in the final How they did it: After an underwhelming regular season, the talented Huskies got hot at the right time, winning three games in three days to claim the Pac-10 Tournament championship. Washington was led by the talented inside-outside duo of senior forward Matthew Bryan-Amaning (15.5 points, 8.1 rebounds per game) and junior guard Isaiah Thomas (16.8 points, 6 assists per game). Player of the Year: Derrick Williams, Arizona sophomore forward (19.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 0.7 blocks per game) BIG TEN Regular-season champion: Ohio State (32-2, 16-2) Tournament champion: Ohio State, defeated Penn State 71-60 in the final How they did it: The Buckeyes played only seven players but still had the nation's most complete team. With freshman Jared Sullinger dominating inside and senior Jon Diebler raining threes, the Buckeyes were the last remaining unbeaten at 24-0. Player of the Year: JaJuan Johnson, Purdue senior center (20.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.3 blocks per game) SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE Regular-season champion: Florida (26-7, 13-3) How they did it: The Gators won the SEC championship with their balanced scoring, as four players averaged between 11.3 and 14.4 points per game. Senior Chandler Parsons displayed why he is one of the nation's most versatile players, leading the team in rebounds and assists per game. Tournament champion: Kentucky (25-8, 10-6), defeated Florida 70-54 How they did it: As is becoming tradition with John Calipari's teams, the Wildcats relied on a crop of supremely talented freshmen. Brandon Knight (17.5 points, 4.2 assists, 4.0 rebounds per game) and Terrence Jones (16.5 points, 9.0 rebounds per game) lead a team that only gives six players significant minutes. Player of the Year: Chandler Parsons, Florida senior forward (11.5 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists per game) BIG EAST Regular-season champion: Pittsburgh (27-5, 15-3) How they did it: Pitt grinded out win after win with an experienced lineup and physical play. The Panthers rank eighth nationally in rebounding and run their half-court offense as well as any team in the country. Tournament champion: Connecticut (26-9, 9-9), defeated Louisville 69-66 in the final How they did it: The Huskies became the first team to ever win five Big East Tournament games in five days behind a heroic performance from junior (emba Walker, who averaged 23.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.9 steals for the season. Player of the Year: Ben Hansbrough, Notre Dame senior guard (18.5 points, 4.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds per game) ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE Regular-season champion: North Carolina (26-7, 14-2) How they did it: The Tar Heels got off to a relatively disappointing 17-6 start before winning nine consecutive games. UNC is led by freshman Harrison Barnes, who got his college career off to a slow start but has averaged 22 points per game in March. Tournament champion: Duke (30-4, 13-3), defeated North Carolina 75-58 in the final How they did it: After losing explosive freshman superstar Kyrie Irving early in the season, the Blue Devils had to lean heavily on seniors Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler, who responded in a big way. Player of the Year: Nolan Smith, Duke senior guard (21.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.1 assists per game) NATIONAL STORYLINES BIG DANCE GETS BIGGER For the first time ever, the NCAA Tournament features 68 teams in 2011. The Tournament will be structured as it normally is, though there will now be a pair of "First Four" games, where the final four at-large teams compete for 12 seeds and the lowest-ranked four conference champions compete for 16 seeds. BYU ROLLER COASTER The Cougars made positive and negative headlines this season. Led by senior guard Jimmer Fredette, BYU stormed out to a 27-2 record and a No. 3 ranking. But days after the Cougars completed a sweep of San Diego State, sophomore forward Brandon Davies was suspended for the season due to a violation of BYU's honor code. The Cougars have been a different team without Davis, finishing the year 3-2. BIG EAST DOMINANCE The Big East displayed its strength from top to bottom, earning an unprecedented 11 bids to the NCAA tournament. The Big Ten made a late surge to get seven teams in the field, followed by three conferences with five (Big 12, ACC and SEC) and the Pac-10 with three. The Mountain West also emerged as a national presence, as San Diego State and BYU earned top-three seeds in the Big Dance.

Sports MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org UF TRACK & FIELD No. I Florida repeats as national indoor champion By JOE MORGAN Alligator Writer The No. 1 Gators faced the same question week after week throughout the season. Could they win back-to-back national championships? As coach Mike Holloway maintained throughout the year, repeating wasn't a concern for his team. They were just "focused on 2011." But once the repeat was accomplished, Florida finally let loose. "This is the kind of stuff you dream about as a kid," heptathlon All-American Gray Horn said. "To go out and do something incredible." The Gators won the NCAA Indoor Championships in College Station, Texas, with 52 total points, 12 more than secondplace and host Texas A&M. But halfway through the meet, this weekend's win seemed like it wouldn't come to fruition. Florida scored just eight points Friday with junior Will Claye's second-place finish in the long jump, which was lower than Holloway's anticipated 12-15 points. Things began to look even more bleak for the top-ranked Gators when they trailed No. 5 Brigham Young by 16 points through the first eight events. "We had a lot of fight in us, and we showed that," Holloway said. "We never worry about anybody else. We just needed to come out and be Florida. And that's what we did. "We had some bad luck," Cheryl Treworgy -PrettySporty.com / Alligator The Florida men's track and field team poses after winning the 2011 NCAA Indoor Championships in College Station, Texas, on Saturday. UF is the fourth team to win consecutive national indoor titles. Holloway continued. "People wanted to know what was wrong with Florida. There was nothing wrong with Florida." Thanks to the efforts of individual national champions Claye (triple jump) and sophomore Jeff Demps (60m dash), as well as All-American performances by Horn (heptathlon), junior Christian Taylor (triple jump) and Dumisane Hlaselo (men's mile run), the Gators scored 34 points in the final nine events to clinch the meet. Gunning for his third consecutive national title in the triple jump, Taylor finished second to Claye. "We had some adversity," Holloway said. "But I told them that true champions respond to adversity." In addition to becoming just the fourth school to win consecutive NCAA Indoor Championships, UF also saw a few of its athletes set several records. Claye set a school and an NCAA meet record with his 17.32m/56-10 mark in the triple jump. Horn's 5,890 points in the SEE TRACK, PAGE 24 Gators sweep Rhode Island By TOM GREEN Alligator Writer tgreen@alligator org Sunday was like d j vu for Gators fans. For the second time this season, No. 1 Florida (14-2) fooled its opponent with a hidden-ball trick in a crucial situation, as UF swept Rhode Island with an 8-6 win in McKethan Stadium. Just like when Florida executed the playground trick against Boston College, Sunday's feat came with two outs and after a game-tying RBI by the opposing team. "As long as it keeps working, I'm all right with it," junior Preston Tucker said. "They had a lot of momentum going. .Anything that can get us out of that inning can help us a ton." Holding on to a 1-0 lead in the top of the second, Florida starter Karsten Whitson (3-0, 2.21 ERA) allowed three straight Rams batters to reach base, walking catcher Milan Adams then giving up singles to third baseman Dan Haverstick and second baseman Pat Fortunato. Fortunato singled to center to score Adams, squaring the game at 1-1 and giving the Rams two baserunners. That's when the Gators pulled off the sandlot tactic. Center fielder Bryson Smith bobbled the ball in the outfield before tossing it to second baseman Josh Adams, who never gave the ball back to Whitson. Moments later, Adams tagged Haverstick out at second to end the scoring threat and halt the Rams' momentum. "I really wasn't planning on keeping it," Adams said. "He just kind of got off the bag, and I tagged him. Whenever you can take outs Adams like that, you do it." Following the play, the Gators tacked on three unanswered runs over the next three innings to take a 4-1 advantage. After closing the gap to 4-3 in the top of the sixth, it was Adams who again pulled the rug SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 24 UF falls to UK in SEC final By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alliagator org ATLANTAIn the first two games of the Southeastern Conference Tournament, the Gators were able to overcome slow starts with dominant second halves. But Sunday, their late-game magic finally ran out. No. 15 Kentucky (25-8, 10-6 SEC) came out of the gate strong and never let up, outmuscling No. 12 Florida (267, 13-3 SEC) 70-54 to claim the SEC Tournament Championship. "The difference, I thought, was we weren't physical enough," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "I just didn't think that our frontcourt guys, when they got the ball, did very much with it." Starters Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin combined for 12 points and only eight shots, as the Wildcats denied post feeds and forced the Gators' big men away from the rim. Florida was equally ineffective driving the ball to the hoop, which led Men's to Kentucky taking B 29 free throws to Basketba Florida's eight. "The game was won at the free-throw line," Donovan said. "When someone takes 21 more free throws than you, it's hard to overcome.

22, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 UF storms past AU By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer While one member of the UF women's tennis program received recognition for a career-spanning achievement Sunday, another found her first success of the season. Before the No. 1 Gators lined up to face Auburn at Linder Stadium, UF coach Roland Thornqvist was recognized for his 300th career win, which came Feb. 18 over Miami. Thornqvist humbly accepted a plaque for his achievement before Florida (15-1, 4-0) breezed through a quick 4-0 dismantling of the Tigers (2-12, 0-4). The Gators continued their success on the doubles courts, coming up with wins on Courts 2 and 3 only 47 minutes after play began as all three Gators doubles pairings overpowered their opponents. Lauren Embree and Joanna Mather overcame a slow start and put together the best showing on Court 2. They quickly turned a 3-0 deficit into a 7-3 lead, then wrapped up the match with an 8-4 win. But the highlight of the day came when sophomore Brittany Borsanyi saw her first singles action of the season. Borsanyi matched up with Auburn's Taylor Cohen on Court 6 in her first singles match since last April. Tennis S[ B r 1 t t a n y ] played what I thought wasflawless tennis," Thornqvist said. "She made good decisions with the ball and looked as sharp as she has in the two years she's been at Florida." Borsanyi left with a 6-0, 6-1 victory, exemplifying the efficient attitude Thornqvist has consistently looked for in his team this season. "It was an amazing feeling to be out there," Borsanyi said. "That's probably what made me play so well." UF SOFTBALL Gators bounce back, rout Bulls By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer While it wasn't a perfect weekend, it was certainly close. After losing to No. 16 Nebraska on Saturday, the No. 2 Florida softball team (25-1, 2-0 SEC) responded with a 10-2 drubbing of South Florida to finish a 4-1 weekend at the USF Under Armour Showcase in Clearwater. The Gators rebounded in a big way with nine hits, including three home runs, after being shut out for the first time all season Saturday. Led by the hot hitting of Megan Bush, UF scored double-digit runs for the eighth time this year. The senior first baseman was a force all weekend, launching three home runs, including a solo shot in the third inning against the Bulls. She added a sacrifice fly in the fourth and a single in the sixth, pushing her average to .451. "This weekend, I was seeing the ball better than I ever have before," she said. "My approach has been much more relaxed, especially with two strikes." The two hitters in front of Bush, Kelsey Bruder and Brittany Schutte, continued to frustrate opposing pitchers. Bruder reached base in all four plate appearances and didn't stop there. The left fielder scored three runs on three walks and a single, even stealing a base, while Schutte showed off her signature power with a three-run homer in the third and a double in the fourth. As one of the most experienced players on the team, Bush makes it her job to carry the lineup even when the younger players have struggles. "I want to be better hitting behind them, so they can get better pitches," she said. "I've always put a lot of pressure on myself, but now, I'm trying to have fun and not focus on my mechanics and just hit." Although sophomore Ensley Gammel allowed two runs and walked three, the Gators' pitching staff performed well all weekend. Freshman Hannah Rogers drew the start and earned her 11th win, tossing four scoreless innings. Senior Stephanie Brombacher, meanwhile, improved to 14-0 and said UF's high-scoring offense has taken a lot of pressure off her this year. Bush Despite taking the loss against Nebraska, Rogers has firmly established herself as a dependable and dominant complement to Brombacher. While the Gators weren't able to pull out the win against the Cornhuskers, Brombacher said the game was tight and was a good test against a topflight pitcher. "The loss doesn't define us," Bush said. "We know we're not going to go undefeated now, but we don't play to not lose. We want to win, and we'll never go out there and play scared."

24, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 Gators confident poor showing vs. Kentucky won't carry into Tournament BASKETBALL, from page 1 Over the course of the season, the Gators have found that losses force them to take a closer look at the things they can do to get better. After victories, the team typically focuses on keeping its momentum going instead of evaluating its imperfections. The Gators have yet to drop back-to-back games this season. "When you win, I think it doesn't show the mistakes that you made in games," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. "We can watch this film, see the mistakes that we made and correct them to be ready for the first round of the NCAA Tournament." Before the selection, the team was adamant that its seeding was irrelevant. But the Gators admitted location would be significant. Of the eight potential regional sites, Tampa was by far the closest. "I would think we could have the most fans and be able to pack the house," Walker said. "It's always good to have." Still, Donovan and his players emphasized that every team is strong at this stage of the season, and each game will Walker be hotly contested. The Gators figure to be prepared, as they are confident that one bad showing won't affect the way they've played over the past month. "This will blow over," Boynton said. "We're going to get right back to where we were." Returning to form will be critical, as the Gators will face the UCLA-Michigan State winner with a victory over UCSB. If seeding holds, Florida would square off against BYU in the Sweet Sixteen and Pittsburgh in the Elite Eight. "It's definitely a whole new season," Walker said. "Everybody is 0-0, and it's new life. We've just got to be ready to go." If their words are any indication, the Gators are prepared for Thursday and beyond. "You have to come out ready to play like it's the last game you're ever going to play," freshman center Patric Young said. Trick play shifts momentum; Adams drives in three BASEBALL, from page 21 out from under URI. The senior belted a bases-clearing, three-RBI double to center to extend UF's lead to 7-3. "Momentum kind of swung our way," said Adams, who led the Gators with seven RBIs on the weekend. "It was one of those things to get the team going and give everybody a little comfort feeling there at the end." URI threatened to nullify Adams' efforts in the final two frames, as the Rams tagged freshman righty Matt Campbell for three runs in the eighth before right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (1.50 ERA) came in from the bullpen to record his second save of the season. DeSclafani pitched Baseball 1.1 scoreless innings but allowed two runners to reach base in the ninth before striking out pinch hitter Greg Annarummo, giving the Gators their fourth straight weekend series sweep to open the season.

The UF business school jumped 13 spots from 2010 to place 42nd in Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s 2011 ranking of 113 undergraduate business programs in the nation’s colleges and universities. It is the highest ranking for the school since the magazine began ranking programs six years ago. “Obviously our students are doing a great job in interviews and programs,” said Brian Ray, director of the business school and associate dean of the college. The ranking shows the strengths of changes made in the college in the last few years, Ray said. Warrington has implemented two new professional courses students are required to take: public speaking and a professional writing class. The college also began offering students a variety of minors, including accounting and entrepreneurship. Ray said professional recruiters placed Warrington 10th among the schools ranked. “We are very happy with the rankings and pleased recruiters are seeing the talent of students,” Ray said.Business college ranks in top 50 “We are very happy with the rankings and pleased recruiters are seeing the talent of students.”Brian Ray director of the business school

She fell asleep in her dorm room to the rocking of aftershocks, which she stopped feeling around midnight. She had read how-to booklets on what to do during an earthquake, but she said they didn’t help much. “I feel like I wasn’t really prepared, so I was probably lucky that I was at the store, where people knew what to do,” she said. She said none of the buildings near her fell, mainly because newer Japanese buildings are made to withstand strong earthquakes. Taka Hamada, a 23-year-old UF journalism junior, said he couldn’t believe what had happened. His mom and younger sisters live in Hiroshima, which is on the country’s west coast. He said they are safe.

Susan Bottcher, who is running for the District 3 seat, said comfortable shoes are essential for campaign season, especially during weekends when she walks door to door talking to as many Gainesville voters as she can. District 3 candidate Rob Zeller said the busiest part has been the dozen or so forums and paper questionnaires. “They take a lot more time to answer than I thought,” he said. But for most candidates, campaigning hasn’t been just “I haven’t seen my kids much in the last four weeks,” said Zeller, who has three young children. “My daughter wants to see me more.” His 5-year-old daughter, Lily, will have a birthday soon after the election, and he doesn’t want to miss it. But if there’s a run-off, he’ll be swamped again. “If there’s another election, then I have to get back to the grindstone,” he said. For James Ingle, who’s running for a seat in District 2, wedding planning has been delayed. “I am engaged to the most patient woman in the world,” The wedding itself is still on track for April 19, but Ingle said the campaign has made an already hectic process even more stressful. While many candidates carefully are budgeting their time with the typical campaign activities, one has taken a different approach. Selwach said he decided not to take donations from anyone, so he has no need for fundraisers. He put $2,500 of his own money into his campaign. He also said he doesn’t want to clutter up people’s mailhe campaigned door to door. “Do you like it when you’re at home and someone comes and knocks on your door?” he asked. “No, you don’t.” He’s christened his store, Best Jewelry and Loan Pawncitizens and makes his case. Candidates said campaigning has taught them about what they can accomplish. Campaigning even can be fun. Angulo, another candidate for District 3, said he and his team were relatively inexperienced but still were able to pull off some victories, such as locking up an endorsement from the African American Accountability Alliance. When they found out, Angulo and his campaign manager were speechless in their elation. “We just looked at each other for a second, because we couldn’t believe we’d won it,” he said. Selwach said he had fun at the Tea Party forum and felt relaxed. During the forum, he stood up and declared himself to be “Diamond Rick the Pawn Broker,” a parallel to “Joe the Plumber” from the 2008 presidential election. Ingle said he’s become close friends with people he didn’t even know before he started running. Because of this, he doesn’t mind going door to door every weekend and most weekdays. In fact, he said he enjoys it. “People are great. I’d say nine out of 10 of them want to talk to you about the city,” he said. ELECTIONS, from page 1 Gainesville Cit y Commission

It’s just, and it’s part of the due punishment our justice system provides. However, we were left scratching our heads Wednesday, when Florida’s state clemency board made it harder for nonviolent felons to regain those rights upon release from prison. Just four years ago, former Gov. Charlie Crist saw a problem with the massive delays in restoring the rights occupational licenses. He granted these felons immediate restoration of their rights — and by “immediate,” we mean it would take months or years for the paperwork to work its way through Florida bureaucracy. Gov. Rick Scott sees things differently, as does Attorney General Pam Bondi. They, along with other members of the board, decided people who have served their time and followed court or ders would have an additional sentence tacked on to jail people who normal society has a vested interest in re-assimilating can again start feeling like a normal citizen. We fail to understand the board’s reasoning for this change in policy. In fact, with his vague talk and secrecy surrounding the decision, we suspect the governor himself doesn’t have a decent reason for it. There has been talk that the members of the board simply wanted to pull strings to ensure a disproportionately black and Democrat voting block was eliminated from the upcoming elections. The Miami Herald even went as far as to call the policy change a return to Jim Crow laws, stating that the state has “gone back a century.” Whether that’s true and whether people agree with the board’s decision have yet to be seen, but we are alarmed by the secrecy that surrounded the change. Meeting to vote on a proposal made public only at the beginning of the same meeting doesn’t sound like the Flor ida’s fabled “Government in the Sunshine” to us. Just the opposite: It sounds like shady business. We hoped the board members would understand the idea of a deliberate government and at least give the opposition time to gather its thoughts and speak on a given issue. of a steamroller and the speed of a jet to reshape the state When Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam voiced his concerns — albeit weakly — over the speed at which His objection and near-immediate coalescence speaks volumes about Gov.

However, these two cornerstones of American How is this? It’s simple. Every American, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, is entitled to certain fundamental freedoms, and society has accommodated these freedoms and balanced its interests against those of the individual. Marriage is, essentially, a state-sanctioned institution with societal rights and responsibilities accompanying its unique status. Thus, our society has a vested interest in maintaining the institution’s integrity. What is this interest, though? Is it the stability of the institution? Although this argument has merit, it falls short. Consider that interracial marriage was once expressly for bidden, but it is widely accepted today. Is it the economic aspect of marriage? Again, this argument might have merit, but it is weak. cussing issues of fundamental freedoms and fairness. Is it to protect the rights of the par ties involved with – or incident to – the marriage? This answer is closer to the truth. Keep in mind that the state proIt also oversees probate proceedings when one partner in the marriage dies. It even enforces child support and custody agreements when a marriage, sadly, fails. Perhaps, though, the answer lies in none of these arguments. Our society’s most compelling interest in maintaining the integrity of marriage is that this institution is Thus, fairness dictates that every member of our sotion of something as fundamental as marriage will be. At the moment, society has accepted the traditional view that marriage is between only one man and one woman. This prevailing view may change, though, as the electorate becomes increasingly younger.

They must embrace the powerful ideas of freedom and fairness by encouraging others to exercise their riage. Zack Smithletters@alligator.org

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 President Barack Obama on Monday rescinded his twoyear-old directive banning military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay. In a new executive order, Obama clears the way for resuming military trials at the naval base. This is regrettable, considering the president campaigned on — and in a year of his inauguration. Still, the concession is a prudent one. Guantanamo is a nearly impossible issue, one that may be black-and-white in moral terms but is very gray in practice, and the reforms that the president has included in his most recent order alleviate much of what Americans have found so distasteful regarding the military base. In order to deal with the 172 prisoners currently detained at the naval base, the new executive order reinstates a system allowing prisoners to be tried by military courts. Numerous obstacles have stood in the way of trying prisoners in civilian court and have forced them into legal limbo and indeterminate detention. The new executive order remedies this by allowing prisoners either to be tried on-site by a military tribunal or to make a plea bargain. Because many detainees were tortured to obtain information, evidence gained from such tactics would be thrown out in court, weakening the prospect of conviction. The new order attempts to solve this problem by requiring compliance with international treaties barring inhumane treatment. But a fundamental problem remains: Because evidence obtained under duress is inadmissible — even in these military tribunals — the government faces a “Sophie’s choice” between releasing or illegally detaining people it reasonably believes to be terrorist threats. This is the problem of Guantanamo. Perhaps most important of all, the order establishes a process of periodic review by several federal agencies of the prisoners’ threat to our security. This will decide whether prisoners should be tried, released or transferred to another country. Nonetheless, the new executive order fails to address many have insisted that the president remains committed to closing the base in the near future, but the order sheds little light on when that will be. And because Obama made it clear that the order only applies to current and not future detainees, it is unclear how the base will be used in coming years. The new decision has left the long-term plans for Guantanamo up in the air. Commendable as this executive order is, it is far from resolving an issue that has remained a sore point in the United States for years.

The most outrageous measure has been an effort to squelch driving violations through the use of automated ticketing machines or ATMs. If a motorist runs a red light, a camera takes a picture of the vehicle and then sends a ticket through the mail to crack down on running red lights. Besides the creepy Big Brother implications of these measures, the machines come with a number of reasons to be prohibited. The cameras ignore the basic function of due process by automatically ticketing drivers, relinquishing their ability to immediately contest violations.

By KAT BEINAlligator Staff WriterI’d never been to Mardi Gras before, or even to New Or leans, but I was instructed to expect the worst. I was told men would follow me with beads, begging to see my goodies. I was told urine and alwas insane, they said, for going. That would have been awesome if that were the case. I pride myself on my ability to rage and ride the chaos until the booze wave drowns us all. But Fat Tuesday wasn’t exactly what I expected. I arrived Monday evening and checked into my fancy hotel near the French quarter. My rag-tag foursome was only slightly out of place among the old and rich. They were dressed for the opera; we were dressed for a zombie apocalypse. We got ready in our room, then headed out for Zoolu, a warehouse rave in the central business district. Bourbon Street, the fabled Mardi Gras headquarters. The street was barricaded, bling, doe-eyed drunks. Men leered from centuries-old balconies, pointing and shouting at girls on the street to show their breasts for plastic beads. The girls giggled and said, “Me?” Everyone drank fruity iced cocktails from tall, skinny plastic goblets and wore blinking jewelry bought from strolling light-uptoy vendors. Though there was a general sense of lawlessness and a faint smell of ganja, none of it felt spontaneous or out of control. Bourbon Street was a dirty, boozefueled Disney World that smelled like vomit and human waste. We moved toward Canal Street through the hoard of revelers and was packed with thousands of young people. My friends and I danced and goofed off while acrobatic girls dangled from the ceiling. Some crazy man in a wacky bodysuit blew up a giant plastic bubble, then danced his way inside of it. The show went on until 3 a.m., and then we moved to another club for the after-party, hanging out in VIP until about 6 a.m., when we decided it was time to hit the road. I woke up on Fat Tuesday sometime after noon to the sound of parades outside my window. When I made it to the street, I found the whole town taken over by every kind of person in the world. Instead of cars, bright and coldrove down the streets, hip-hop and top-40 songs blasting from their speakers. Riders cheered, threw things and waved. Candy, beaded necklaces and confetti showered the bystanders of all ages. About 1 million people attended. is a religious holiday, but Mardi Gras is even more godless than Christmas shopping, although perhaps just as commercialized. No one had praying on their minds, but they were spending a lot of money. We began moving away from the main arena and north on Decatur Street, past Cafe Du Monde and toward Marigny. The farther we walked, the fewer lost tourists we found and the more interesting things became. We started seeing fewer people in sad blue wigs and feathered boas in exchange for more intricate garb. Instead of families and cute couples, we met crusty kids and street bands. I got the sense we’d stumbled into the more interesting side of the party. As the sun went down, the street opened back up for cars to Beaded necklaces got caught in turning tires, popping and sparking as they were crushed. Mounds of garbage lined the sidewalks, which were covered in a glistening, slimy mess of who knows what. The smell was unholy. When the clock struck midWednesday. The partiers of Bour bon Street were kicked off by a barrage of police headed by the kind of religious screamers who yell their sermons on Turlington Plaza. Back on Decatur, some people still hung on, dancing in the streets and on cars while a traveling band played a few tunes. But the festivities basically were over. I expected the party to keep going. But, nope, that was pretty much it. Back to Florida I went, with a handful of beads, a bad hangover and a few stories that hold no water to those of Charlie Sheen. But at least I got laid. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011Jordan Streetzel / Alligator Cars drive over beads and trash left behind from a parade on Canal Street in New Orleans on Tuesday.

10, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 Rosa Taveras / Alligator Staff March MadnessWith all due respect to the holiday season, March Madness really is the most wonderful time of the year. Feel free to use the bracket on Pages 12 and 13 and challenge us in our bracket challenge online at alligatorSports.org, where fame and fabulous prizes await the winner. Searching for helpful hints, tips and tricks to solve the mystery of the NCAA Tournament? Look no further. However, there are going to be a lot of upsets. Pick at least two dark horses per region, even if it means choosing teams randomly to do so. Sometimes, that’s the most effective method. Don’t go overboard with the upsets. Higherseeded teams are usually seeded higher for a reason. Just go chalk. This is about money. You won’t win any popularity contests, but those are for politicians and homecoming queens. You know who else isn’t very popular? Mark Zuckerberg. But his cash keeps him company. Beware of teams entering the Tournament amid a major slump or with injuries (examples: Villanova, Georgetown, Florida State, BYU) or those entering on a hot streak (especially conference tournament winners). Pay attention to location. Keep an eye on trendy Big East teams faced with the disadvantage of being shipped out West. Think about the conference. A 28-4 team in the WAC obviously isn’t as good as a 28-4 team in the Big East. Teams seeded 7-11 this year are all essentially the exact same: pretty decent. Even though you’re close to the situation, try to stay far, far away from it. Don’t get caught up in the orange and blue and blindly predict Florida into the Final Four. You’ll hate the Gators when it’s all said and done if you lose your pool because of them.

MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 alligatorSports columnists give a lesson in NCAA BracketologyFINAL FOUR: March Madness is back, and you know what that means: It’s time to make “educated” predictions on games that involve two teams you have never even seen bounce a basketball before. So, I might as well throw out my wild opinion: Ohio State, UConn, Kansas and BYU. That doesn’t sound too crazy. But I like the idea of Kemba Walker and Jimmer Fredette carrying their teams deep into the tournament. DARK HORSE: Belmont. This team has won Tournament games in the past, and it has the depth to make a run this season. Eleven of Belmont’s players average double-digit minutes. FLORID A FORECAST: The Gators have pretty good depth too. damage this time around. The Gators should get out of Tampa and to the Sweet Sixteen without a problem, but that’s where it will end for them. A rematch against Jimmer and BYU is sure to await them in the third round. And as you can see by my Final Four predictions, I think the Gators will lose that game. It has been a good year for Florida, but it is a little over its head with a No. 2 seed. UF’s shooting is too inconsistent to make a deep run. I don’t think a team that loses to Jacksonville and UCF should ever be rewarded with such a high seed. BYU will expose that and will end UF’s season for the second consecutive year. FINAL FOUR: Ohio State, Kansas, Pittsburgh and San Diego State. You don’t need to be reminded about that time the Buckeyes walked into Gainesville and cruised to an 18-point victory. Kansas will be carried, like it has all year, by the Morris twins. You never root against twins. They’re just too cute. Pitt is as tough as any team in the nation. As long as they keep the score close late in the second half, you have to believe the Panthers’ guards will be able to carry them to victory. And San Diego State? Why not. It just seems like the Final Four would be more fun with them at the party. DARK HORSE: Missouri. The Tigers have been a disappointment since Big 12 play started, but with a little luck, they have the potential to upset anybody. Coach Mike Anderson, who worked at Arkansas during the 40 Minutes of Hell days, implements a nasty press that has keyed a couple unexpected runs in past tournaments. Remember 2004, when Anderson led UAB past No. 1 Kentucky in the second round? Or how about 2009, Cincinnati, I’m putting you on notice. And Connecticut, watch yourself. You’re next. FLORID A FORECAST: The Gators could not have scored a much luckier draw. If the opening weekend goes chalk, UF will have a pretty favorable Sweet Sixteen matchup against BYU. The hot-shooting Stormin’ Mormons could have made a deep run, but Brandon Davies was seduced by a real Fanny Alger — if you know what I mean. While Davies was searching for treasure like Joseph Smith, BYU’s national title hopes tanked. Florida will walk off the court winners, and Billy Donovan will be as popular as top Utah citizens Deron Williams, Matt Stone and Trey Parker. You bastards! But that is as far as Florida will get.

DARK HORSE: here: Morehead State in the Southwest, and Belmont in the Southeast. There are few players I like more than Eagles big man Kenneth Faried, who averaged 17.6 points, 14.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game while leading Morehead State to a 24-9 record. If and Morehead State upsets Louisville, the Eagles have a clear route to a Sweet Sixteen matchup against Kansas. reeled off 19 victories in the Atlantic Sun. The Bruins haven’t lost since Jan. 25. While I love No. 4-seed Wisconsin’s red-headed, Jewish sensation Mike Bruesewitz, Belmont is more than capable of earning a Sweet Sixteen date with Pitt by beating the Badgers and either Kansas State or Utah State in the second round. FLORID A FORECAST: While they certainly seemed worthy with a four-game winning streak leading up to Sunday’s loss to Kentucky, the Gators were fortunate to pull out a No. 2 seed — and even luckier to be placed where they are. The Southeast sets up well for Florida, which can breeze by UCSB in BYU would have presented a thrilling rematch in the Sweet Sixteen, but the loss of Brandon Davies will likely keep the Cougars from movprovided a last-minute switch of venue to Madison Square Garden. The Gators’ remarkable run will come to an end, however, against Pitt in the Elite Eight.

The cab driver drops me at Stewart International Airport where Red awaits. “Where the hell you been, man? I was wor ried about you. I didn’t think you were going to make it. Jesus Christ, you’re shitfaced. It’s “I’m still drunk from last night. I need a screwdriver or a Bloody Mary or something. We board the plane and are assigned the last two seats on the left aisle in the back. I gasp to the stewardess, “How soon before She laughs, “Shortly after airborne, we’ll True to her word, after we lift off, she starts hauling me and Red screwdrivers.

It’s not yet 8 a.m. Old ladies crowd these junkets to play slots. I can feel intense, nasty stares. Being a belligerent drunk, I begin breaking balls. I lean forward and yell, “Come on, you old goats, loosen up. You’re on your way to I’m so whacked even Red’s embarrassed. I laugh loud and hard. When it happens, I can’t catch my breath.

To avoid me, Red rises and chats up the two stewardesses. He tells the girls that he and I are heading to Vegas to bet $200,000 on the championship game and paints a charming fairytale about the attach case in the overhead Airlines were still civilized in 1992, so the stewardesses are gullible knockouts. After a couple hours on the plane, most passengers have had enough. Red and I are laughing away, still pounding screwdrivers, when a foghorn voice stuns me. “You the two guys making all the noise I squint through the boozy fog. My one good eye rests on what appears to be a hairy, dungaree-clad cement truck. We’re going to have a beef, and this guy seems to have us outnumbered. He’s the whole package: motorcycle boots, spiked leather wristbands, chains — a central casting Hell’s Angel. Then, a surprise. “You guys sound like fun.

I hit the shower and head for the nearest bar. I hear screaming coming from the packed lounge. The circular bar is wrapped around four TV sets, all tuned to the championship game. I wade through clouds of tobacco smoke and spot Red roaring between the two stewup next to the blonde. “Oh my God. We thought you’d get us “A wheelchair? Jesus Christ.

Sports ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org monday MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2011By JOE MORGANAlligator Writer The No. 1 Gators faced the same question week after week throughout the season. Could they win back-to-back national championships? As coach Mike Holloway maintained throughout the year, repeating wasn’t a concern for his team. They were just “focused on 2011.” But once the repeat was acloose. “This is the kind of stuff you dream about as a kid,” heptathlon All-American Gray Horn said. “To go out and do something incredible.” The Gators won the NCAA Indoor Championships in College Station, Texas, with 52 total points, 12 more than secondplace and host Texas A&M. But halfway through the meet, this weekend’s win seemed like it wouldn’t come to fruition. Florida scored just eight points Friday with junior Will Claye’s jump, which was lower than Holloway’s anticipated 12-15 points. Things began to look even more bleak for the top-ranked Gators when they trailed No. 5 Brigham Young by 16 points we showed that,” Holloway said. “We never worry about anybody else. We just needed to come out and be Florida. And that’s what we did. “We had some bad luck,” Holloway continued. “People wanted to know what was wrong with Florida. There was nothing wrong with Florida.” Thanks to the efforts of individual national champions Claye (triple jump) and sophomore Jeff Demps (60m dash), as well as All-American performances by Horn (heptathlon), junior Christian Taylor (triple jump) and Dumisane Hlaselo (men’s mile run), the Gators scored 34 points the meet. Gunning for his third consecutive national title in the triple Claye. “We had some adversity,” Holloway said. “But I told them that true champions respond to adversity.” In addition to becoming just the fourth school to win consecutive NCAA Indoor Championships, UF also saw a few of its athletes set several records. Claye set a school and an NCAA meet record with his 17.32m/56-10 mark in the triple jump.

UF is the fourth team to win consecutive national indoor titles. UF TRACK & FIELDNo. 1 Florida repeats as national indoor championBy GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writergluca@alliagator.org of the Southeastern Conference Tour nament, the Gators were able to over come slow starts with dominant second halves. But Sunday, their late-game magic No. 15 Kentucky (25-8, 10-6 SEC) came out of the gate strong and never let up, outmuscling No. 12 Florida (267, 13-3 SEC) 70-54 to claim the SEC Tournament Championship. “The difference, I thought, was we weren’t physical enough,” UF coach Billy Donovan said. “I just didn’t think that our frontcourt guys, when they got the ball, did very much with it.” Starters Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin combined for 12 points and only eight shots, as the Wildcats denied post feeds and forced the Gators’ big men away from the rim. Florida was equally ineffective driving the ball to the hoop, which led to Kentucky taking 29 free throws to Florida’s eight. “The game was won at the free-throw line,” Donovan said. “When someone takes 21 more free throws than you, it’s hard to over come.” The Gators’ inability to score from Men's Bask etball Adams SEE TRACK, PAGE 24 SEE BASEBALL, PAGE 24 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 24By TOM GREENAlligator Writertgreen@alligator.org Sunday was like dj vu for Gators fans. For the second time this season, No. 1 Florida (14-2) fooled its opponent with a hidden-ball trick in a crucial situation, as UF swept Rhode Island with an 8-6 win in McKethan Stadium. Just like when Florida executed the playground trick against Boston College, Sunday’s feat came with two outs and after a game-tying RBI by the opposing team. “As long as it keeps working, I’m all right with it,” junior Preston Tucker said. “They had a lot of momentum going. Anything that can get us out of that inning can help us a ton.” Holding on to a 1-0 lead in the top of the second, Florida starter Karsten Whitson (3-0, 2.21 ERA) allowed three straight Rams batters to reach base, walking catcher Milan Adams then giving up singles to third baseman Dan Haver stick and second baseman Pat Fortunato. Fortunato singled to center to score Adams, squaring the game at 1-1 and giving the Rams two baserunners. That’s when the Gators pulled off the sandlot tactic. baseman Josh Adams, who never gave the ball back to Whitson. Moments later, Adams tagged Haverstick out at second to end the scor ing threat and halt the Rams’ momentum. “I really wasn’t planning on keeping it,” Adams said. “He just kind of got off the bag, and I tagged him. Whenever you can take outs like that, you do it.” Following the play, the Gators tacked on three unanswered runs over the next three innings to take a 4-1 advantage. After closing the gap to 4-3 in the top of the sixth, it was Adams who again pulled the rugGators sweep Rhode Island

After losing to No. 16 Nebraska on Saturday, the No. 2 Florida softball team (25-1, 2-0 SEC) responded with a 10-2 drubbing of South Florida to Showcase in Clearwater. The Gators rebounded in a big way with nine hits, including three home runs, after being shut double-digit runs for the eighth time this year. end, launching three home runs, including a solo shot in the third inning against the Bulls. gle in the sixth, pushing her average to .451. “This weekend, I was seeing the ball better than I ever have before,” she said. “My approach has been much more relaxed, especially with two strikes.” The two hitters in front of Bush, Kelsey Bruder and Brittany Schutte, continued to frustrate opposing pitchers. Bruder reached base in all four plate appear ances and didn’t stop there. and a single, even stealing a base, while Schutte showed off her signature power with a three-run homer in the third and a double in the fourth. As one of the most experienced players on the team, Bush makes it her job to carry the lineup even when the younger players have struggles. “I want to be better hitting behind them, so they can get better pitches,” she said. “I’ve always put a lot of pressure on myself, but now, I’m trying to have fun and not focus on my mechanics and just hit.” Although sophomore Ensley Gammel allowed two runs and walked three, the Gators’ pitching staff performed well all weekend. Freshman Hannah Rogers drew the start and earned her 11th win, tossing four scoreless innings. Senior Stephanie Brombacher, meanwhile, improved to offense has taken a lot of pressure off her this year. Despite taking the loss against tablished herself as a dependable and dominant complement to Brombacher.

The Gators continued their success on the doubles courts, coming up with wins on Courts 2 and 3 only 47 minutes after play began as all three Gators doubles pairings overpowered their opponents. Lauren Embree and Joanna Mather overcame a slow start and put together the best showing on up the match with an 8-4 win. But the highlight of the day came when sophomore Brittany tion of the season. Borsanyi matched up with Auburn’s Taylor Cohen on Court 6 April. “[Brittany] played what I said. “She made good decisions with the ball and looked as sharp as she has in the two years she’s been at Florida.” Borsanyi left with a 6-0, 6-1 viclooked for in his team this season. “It was an amazing feeling to be out there,” Borsanyi said. “That’s probably what made me play so well.” UF storms past AUBush Te nnis What’s on the WebFlorida senior Monica Dodson once again led the Gators diving teams at the NCAA Zone Diving Championships in Athens, Ga., qualifying for the 2011 Women’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships on Saturday.
