Friends raise money for student's battle

0 BRYNO GAY WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HODGKIN'S
LYMPHOMA LAST MONTH AND HIS INSURANCE
MAY NOT COVER ALL OF HIS EXPENSES.

By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

Just three days after learning he had Hodgkin's lympho-
ma, 20-year-old UF student Bryno Gay wanted to run in a 5K
charity race.
While his friends convinced him to take it easy that day, it-
was that mindset that prompted Gay's friend and housemate
Nico Sayavedra to launch a "Helping Bryno Beat Lympho-
ma" Facebook group the :- .11. ii,, week to raise money for
Gay and to provide a place for people to provide emotional
support for him through comments.
People have donated about $2,000 since Sayavedra started OE,
the Web page on Feb. 8. It has 841 members.
Some donations have come from Gay's friends while oth-
ers have come from people who didn't know him personally V "
but were touched by his story.
Gay has Stage 3 lymphoma. His hfianc6e, Tina Diem Tham "
Nguyen, noticed a lump on his throat last fall, and he had a bi-
opsy in January, Sayavedra said. He was surprised when Gay
told him about his diagnosis, partly because Gay had always .
been dedicated to eating healthy and exercising.
"I was devastated. I ended up giving him a hug and cry- :
ing, but I was trying not to do that," Sayavedra said. "I want-
ed to stay strong."
Gay's treatments may cost between $200,000 and $250,000,
but his insurance may not cover all expenses, in which case
Gay may have to pay between $15,000 and $45,000 for medi-
cal treatments, Sayavedra said.
A greater financial strain Gay faces is the need to pay back
some of his student grants because he isn't a full-time student
this semester, having taken medical leave after his diagno- Special to the Alligator
sis. While UF isn't making him pay for his I. Douglas Turner
grant, Sayavedra hopes donations will help Gay pay the other UF student Bryno Gay, 20, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma on Feb. 2. You can contribute to the cause

Freshman dies on break


By HANNAH WINSTON
Alligator Writer

UF freshman Molly Ammon, 19, was
found dead Sunday morning in Pinellas
County by friends who were staying with
her at a condo for Spring Break.
The cause of death is still unknown, ac-
cording to Cecilia Barreda, spokeswoman
for the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
She said the investigation into Ammon's
death is still ongoing and she could not re-
lease any more information.


Barreda said deputies were dispatched to
13910 Gulf Blvd. Apt. 102 in Madeira Beach
on Sunday at 10:55 a.m.
The toxicology and medical examiner re-
ports are still pending.
Local Barreda said the medical
NeWS examiner's report usually ar-
rives quicker than the toxicol-
ogy report but that there is no way of know-
ing when both will be completed.
Ammon was an accounting student from
Tampa and a member of Delta Delta Delta
sorority.

Expert says no major


nuclear threat in Japan


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer


The 8.9-magnitude earthquake that
rocked Japan Friday left several nuclear
power plants unable to cool their reactors,
sparking concern about a nuclear crisis in
a country that is no stranger to the effects
of nuclear radiation.
David Hintenlang, interim chairman
of the UF Nuclear and Radiological En-
gineering Department, doesn't believe
the plants' cooling problems will cause


long-term damage to the country or its
people.
"You see 'nuclear' [and] it gets big
headlines as a nuclear disaster," Hinten-
lang said. "For the general public, I don't
think there's a huge radiological issue for
them."
While some workers may be at risk
for potential harm either from radiation
or, more likely, from structural or me-
chanical problems, other citizens should
remain mostly safe, he said.

Journalism dept. names new chair

SHEWILLSTARTJUNE 1. ~L.


By ANDREW PANTAZI
Alligator Contributing Writer

As it prepares for a curriculum over-
haul for new students, UF's journalism
department will be led by a new chair-
man.
Wayne Wanta, who was an associate
professor at UF from 1999 to 2001, was
named the new head of the department
Monday.
Wanta, who is leaving his position
as the Welch-Bridgewater chairman of
sports journalism at Oklahoma State
University, was praised by interim
chairman David Ostroff as one of the
top journalism academics in America.
Ostroff added that his familiarity
with UF was a big -,. 1, '"o 1.' "- r
"Because he's been on faculty be-
fore, he knows the culture a little bit,"
Ostroff said.
William McKeen, who led the de-
partment since 1998, left UF last year for
a position at Boston University. Since
then, Ostroff, who is also the telecom-
munications department chairman, has
led the journalism department.
John Wright, the dean of the College
of Journalism and Communications,
said another of Wanta's selling points
was his experience with sports journal-
ism and international journalism.
Wright said he expects Wanta to
work with the University Athletic As-
sociation to expand the journalism
school's involvement with GatorZone.
com and GatorVision, the athletic as-
sociation's news programs, and further
the sports journalism options at UE.
Wanta has eight years of newspa-
per experience, which includes jobs at
the Austin American-Statesman, The
Al 11:i.i.,i.._, q,... Journal and The Wiscon-
sin State Journal, as well as 27 years of
teaching experience.
Wanta's one shortcoming, Wright
said, is his lack of administrative expe-
rience.

After all the sign-waving, door-knocking and
hand-shaking, election day has finally arrived.
Pam Carpenter, supervisor of elections, said
voters should go to their designated precincts to
vote. The polls will remain open until 7 p.m.
In the last Commission race, which was in
2009, an at-large seat and the District 1 seat were
contested and 20,232 people voted. This ac-
counted for 26.9 percent of registered voters in
Gainesville.
Carpenter said there were 73,914 eligible vot-
ers in Gainesville as of Monday afternoon.
"I would encourage anyone to vote, especially

With 13 candidates in the race, she hinted at
the possibility of run-offs. Her staff has planned
for one or more, just in case.
Ozzy Angulo, a candidate in the District 3 race,
said voting is essential to the political process.
"That's the most important piece of all of this,"
he said.
At-large candidate Richard Selwach, however,
offered a different take.

Japan nuclear plants can't be rebuilt


NUCLEAR, from page 1

The impacted power plants must release some
radiation-containing gases to relieve pressures
in the core, but Hintenlang doesn't expect the
emissions to cause long-term damage because
winds should sweep most of the gases toward
the ocean.
It will probably take a couple weeks to fully
cool the reactors and stop the nuclear reactions,
but the plants won't be usable again.
The plants are using saltwater to cool the
cores, which can cause corrosion. Paired with the
structural damage, these problems put the opera-
tions in a tough spot.
"Those plants will never operate again unless
they rebuild them from the ground up," he said.
Hintenlang said it could take years to fully
disassemble the plants.
Despite the country's post-earthquake nuclear
problems, he doesn't expect them to make Japa-
nese people leery of nuclear power use.
"I think the Japanese people by and large
accept technology and have embraced nuclear
power largely because they don't have other op-
tions," he said.
Yasuo Uotate, a UF Japanese lecturer from Ja-
pan, said in an e-mail interview that he felt many
Japanese people were uncomfortable with hav-


ing nuclear power plants in the country but un-
derstood its necessity.
"Most Japanese people have never liked hav-
ing nuclear power plants," he said. "However,
some towns couldn't reject having one ... [for]
financial and political reasons."
"I believe that compared with people
in other nations, Japanese people
are more prepared for incidents such
as an earthquake and a tsunami."
Yasuo Uotate
UF Japanese Lecturer

Japan's lack of natural resources such as gas
and oil also makes nuclear power an important
option, Uotate said.
He said he expected the nuclear power plant
problems to make Japan more cautious about
building new ones, and said stricter guidelines
for crisis management at plants should be imple-
mented.
"I believe that compared with people in other
nations, Japanese people are more prepared for
incidents such as an earthquake and a tsunami,"
he said. "However, I don't think regular Japa-
nese people are prepared for nuclear power plant
problems."

grant costs back.
Gay is facing 12 chemotherapy
treatments, spaced two weeks apart.
He has already completed two.
Gay is a member of the Southern
Scholarship Foundation, a Florida-
based group that provides housing
for financially needy students. There
are five of these houses at UF, and
Gay lives with Sayavedra and four-
teen other students in one of them.
The organization has been very
supportive of Gay, donating 80
percent of the proceeds from their
annual "Date and Cake" auction,
where they auction a variety of des-
serts and many students as "dates,"
to his medical costs. So far, they have
raised $1,100 for Gay.
The SSF is also letting Gay contin-
ue to live in the organization house
through the fall, although normally
the SSF requires that all students liv-
ing in its houses must be full-time


students.
Gay's friends visit him often
when he is at Shands Hospital. His
roommate, James Welch, comes to
see him almost every day that he's
there.
"I love him like a brother, and I
wasn't going to let him go through
this by himself," Welch said.
The fundraising efforts for Gay
have caught the attention of many,
including Jamal Sowell, special as-
sistant to UF President Bernie Ma-
chen and a former UF student body
president. Sowell wants to discuss
potential fundraising options for
Gay, and Sayavedra hopes to meet
with him this week.
With more than $3,000 raised for
Gay in a month-and-a-half, Sayave-
dra hopes to see that total grow.

can visit the "Helping Bryno Beat
Lymphoma" Facebook page or by

Students bring new non-profit organization to UF


The group will be dedicated to feeding the poor


By MARISA GOTTESMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Three UF students are working to bring the third-largest
international relief and development charity in the United
States closer to campus.
Since summer, Kayla Cochran, Krista Hadeed and Ash-
ley Quintal have been coordinating, meeting and planning
the debut of Students for the Poor at UF.
The student group would represent Food for the Poor, a


national organization that gives more than 96 percent of its
profits to feeding the poor and providing emergency relief
to citizens of 17 Caribbean and Latin American nations.
Students for the Poor will hold its first
On meeting on March 22 in Little Hall, Room 125.
Campus Cochran expects there to be about 30 people
in attendance.
Cochran, a sophomore English major and co-founder
and secretary of the group, was looking to get involved in
a nonprofit organization.


"I was especially interested in a nonprofit that had a big
emphasis on Haiti," Cochran said.
SFP is different because it teaches sustainability. The or-
ganization is founded on the principle of teaching a man to
fish in order to provide for himself, said Hadeed, a junior
linguistics major and co-founder and president of group.
Quintal, a sophomore accounting major and another co-
founder, said building a tilapia farm overseas is a way the
organization can sustainably help the poor.
Cochran said the goal of the first meeting is to present
the organization and tell students what they can do to help
the poor.

Patient service seeks drivers


By JACOB ROMOSER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Barb Thomas is happy to welcome both
friends and strangers into her yellow 1976 Ford
Maverick.
All of Thomas's passengers have one thing
in common: They have been diagnosed with
cancer.
Thomas, 57, who fought and won her own
battle against the disease five years ago, now
helps current cancer patients with their strug-
gle.
She is one of 13 active drivers for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society Road to Recovery program
in Alachua County. The program pairs cancer
patients who lack transportation with volunteer
drivers, who pick up patients from their homes,
drive them to their treatment facilities and take
them back home once the treatment is over.
"It is an invaluable service for patients who
don't have any other way of getting to their
treatment," Thomas said.


E*'


The program, however, has hit a roadblock.
According to Mel Toran, an area executive di-
rector with the American Cancer Society, Road
to Recovery's need for volunteers is desperate.
"People are missing their treatments due to
lack of transportation," he said.
"It is an invaluable service for
patients who don't have any other
way of getting to their treatment."
Barb Thomas
volunteer

Toran and Thomas agree that a combination
of high gas prices and a struggling economy are
to blame for the lack of volunteers.
"Sometimes I drive once a month, sometimes
four," Thomas said. "It's a great way to give
back after all the help I received while I was in
their shoes."
If you're interested in volunteering, call 800-

By KAT BEIN
Alligator Staff Writer

Stephon Lewis brought $650 of
his own money when he met the UF
student hoping to sell his iPhone 4,
but Lewis' friend brought a gun.
Lewis, a 22-year-old UF employ-
ee, was contacted a few weeks ago
by his lifelong friend Raymond Ste-
phenson about robbing a person on
Craigslist of his iPhone, according to
a Gainesville Police report.
They responded to the student's
online advertisement and agreed to
meet him Sunday at Lexington Cross-
ing Apartments, 3700 SW 27th St.
At 9:40 p.m., Lewis met the stu-
dent at the : :-I .-rl: :II courts in the
complex. Stephenson and another


man walked up to Lewis and the
student with handguns and said,
"This is a :.11... " according to the
report.
The two armed men took the
phone and the money and ran away.
Lewis told police
he was supposed
to get his money
back from Stephen-
son later.
Lewis was ar-
rested by 11:40
p.m., and he ad-
Lewis mitted to police
that he had helped
plan the robbery. Text messages con-
firmed he knew guns would be in-
volved. He is charged with armed
robbery.

Editorial

Empathy Lesson

Suggestions for

approaching a disaster

Our hearts go out to the nation of Japan, which is
coping with a natural disaster combined with a
nuclear threat, the likes of which it has never seen.
Most of us have witnessed the horrific images of the dam-
age in the wake of this confluence of problems, be it via
Internet, television or newspaper.
As we have seen time and again, such events bring out
the best in people.
They can also highlight the worst.
We wonder if someone can publish a disaster policy
guide to show individuals, businesses and media how to
respond to such a scenario.
We're no experts on the topic, but with our experience
in catastrophe-related distastefulness, we 'd like to volun-
teer some suggestions.
Suggestion One: Don't crack jokes at the expense of a
devastated area. It's both unpalatable and unfunny.
Gilbert Gottfried, who was fired from his voice-over
work withAflac for tweeting terrible tsunami jokes, knows
what we mean.
Suggestion Two: Don't try to harness the human urge
to help in order to advertise your products, no matter how
tempting and goodhearted it may seem to do so.
Microsoft will remember this rule after the scathing
response to a Twitter post. The company told people it
would donate a dollar for every re-tweet of a post, but the
idea came off as a marketing ploy gone completely wrong.
It sounded like people had to choose between increasing
Bing's popularity or letting Japan go without their help.
The relief effort shouldn't come with product placement
opportunities.
Suggestion Three: Give it to us straight. If you don't
know what's happening, tell us so, but don't make the
situation sound worse than it is.
It's a disaster. People are dying and having their worlds
dramatically changed.
In the face of such a pervading sense of hopelessness,
you shouldn't make people worry more than they need
to.
Here, we look to all the news channels that reported on
the nuclear situation in Japan before they had confirma-
tion from any officials with the foreign government. We
watched CNN cycle through guest after guest, fishing for
bits of alarming information unearthed only by stripping
away the logical explanations of various experts. Other
channels were little better.
Which brings us to Suggestion Four: Be polite.
This one's also directed to the media. As we watched
the painful discussions the news channels had with nucle-
ar experts, it dawned on us how rude the anchors were.
They not only badgered guests with questions but they
then misconstrued their words or sought out someone
willing to advocate a more outlandish theory.
It's no time for joking, cashing in or misrepresenting
information, but rather a time to be upfront and thought-
ful. We can only hope people who lose their way after such
an unfathomable event - ourselves included - could re-
member to be empathetic in times like these.
Remember that even if they're on the other side of the
world, the victims deserve that much.

Reader response
Today's question: Did/will you
choose your major based solely
on economic factors?


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinion


Column

Major selection: security over dreams


My mother recently forwarded me an article that list-
ed some . p. I:,, .:. .II -- degrees, spotlighting ones
the author considered "winners" and "losers." His
rankings are not the focus, but rather the article's topic. As
a college student, I have many friends who graduated with
bachelor's degrees and are putting them to little use at res-
taurants and retail stores. Understandably, it takes talent,
persistence and luck to land any entry-level job, especially
in the current market, but should four or more hard years of
collegiate work result in jobs also held by high school teens?
It seems ridiculous, unfair even, but with some of the degrees
many students choose to pursue, they find themselves emo-
tionally satisfied but unable to secure stable employment.
For many people this is irrelevant - their ships on collegiate
years having sailed - but for those of us still exploring aca-
demia, picking majors, minors, internships and the like, it's
imperative we make smart choices now. "If you love what
you do, you don't work a day in your life." How many
times have we heard that one? In theory, it's brilliant. Find
something you love, pursue it with all your heart despite the
odds, and you'll end up employed with a contented smile on
your face. However, I'm a bit of a skeptic and find this a little
too sweet to palate. It would be incredible if I could make
money designing jewelry or playing professional : .- rl:: , I,
but things don't happen that way for everyone. A very small
percentage of people are lucky enough to have the resources
and opportunities coincide to allow them to work and play
simultaneously, but for the rest of us it comes down to prac-
ticality. Don't get me wrong, I admire those who follow their
passions and have the confidence and drive to achieve their
choice of career, but who has a passion for finance, chem-
istry or accounting? Nobody loves those classes or spends
hours dreaming about equity mortgages and market port-
folios, but those are the practical skills that will allow gradu-
ates an easier job search and stable pay opportunities. More


and more of the passion-chasers are
finding themselves out of luck after
college, but four years of hard work
and thousands of dollars aren't
easily forgotten. It's a fine balance
between what you love and what is
Laura Ellermeyer practical, and college is the time to
letters@alligator org get serious about the equilibrium.
I'm not trying to knock any de-
grees here, as they all take talent
and dedication to achieve. I just want to point out the inop-
portune situation some graduates face when they choose a
degree out of pure passion and no practicality. As if 11 say at
the end of this column, my major is finance and, honestly, it
kind of sucks. I'll put it on the record I am in this area almost
solely for post-collegiate rewards in a job search, and hope-
fully financial security and job stability. Those are things I've
chosen to value, and they reflect in my degree choice. Is it
selling out? Maybe, but after years of thinking on it, I've de-
cided it's the smartest choice for me.
As for that article, the author urges the dreamers to keep
up their zeal for their studies, preparing themselves for a pos-
sible difficult job search, and I'd like to do the same. College
is a place to blossom and learn about the world and your-
self, but let's not forget why we're here. Eventually, we'll
want homes and cars and we'll have kids who need clothes
and food. While it may seem distant now, its closer than
we think. Make your collegiate years count. Be social, make
connections, learn life skills and, most importantly, leave UF
armed with a degree you are proud of and will take you as
far as you'd like to go. Twenty years from now, it probably
won't really matter what you majored in, but right now, it
does.

Boise State alumna shares account of Japanese earthquake


Aiko Kuromori is a Boise State alumna
who lives in Tokyo, Japan. Aiko was at
work when the earthquake hit. What fol-
lows is her story.

Iwas at my office when the earthquake
struck with a sudden shock that shook my
office building. I felt a drop in my stomach
as I ducked under the table. The lateral move-
ment changed into a parallel movement. It got
stronger and stronger.
I held onto my colleague. I was shaking in
fear, hoping it would stop. I was on the 20th
floor of my office, and the quake lasted for 10
minutes. It felt like centuries. Other buildings
around us were rocking as if they were trees
in the wind. The thought of death crossed my
mind.
After the first earthquake slowed, we evac-
uated from that floor to the floor above so we


were all on the same floor. They gave us hel-
mets, and we sat under desks. My co-worker
and I held hands. She told me that she was ra-
happy not to die with a stranger. Then the sec-
ond big earthquake hit us. We closed our eyes
tight and, with sweaty palms, held hands. I
noticed that had we ducked underneath a desk
next to the window. I mentally prepared my-
self in case the window shattered. All I could
think of was just wanting to be on the ground
and not in a skyscraper.
Everybody was safe. We gathered around
the TV to find out what had happened. On
the screen they showed the Sendai Tsunami.
A 30-foot-high wave was eating the city alive.
Houses were being washed away. It was as if I
was watching the film "Independence Day."
I surrendered myself to Mother Nature. I
realized how frail we are in the face of natural
disaster. The fear I had experienced was noth-
ing compared to what the people in Miyagi


Aiko Kuromori and Sendal were expe-
UWire riencing.
Moments later I saw
a huge explosion in the
sky. The Cosmo Oil storage facility in Chiba
had exploded. The explosion was followed
by a fiery red mushroom cloud. I saw it be-
hind the skyscrapers. Trying to comprehend
soemthing like that is the weirdest feeling. I
went back to my desk and saw the same ex-
plosion on the screen. On a different screen
there was an enormous whirlpool that was
triggered by the earthquake. We finally got
the all-clear to leave the building and we got
to the ground. It was such a relief to be on the
ground. However, we couldn't use our cell
phones and the trains were not running. There
was a four-hour line at the taxi stand. Some
people ended up sleeping at the office or on
the ground at the train station.
The next day I went to the store to buy wa-


ter and food, and the shelves were empty. All
I got was a ton of chocolate.
When I got home, I heard the news about
the Fukushima Danchi nuclear power plant
explosion. The nuclear power plant is 125
miles from where I live. I don't have a TV, so I
relied on social media, e-mail and text messag-
ing for information. All sorts of rumors were
spreading. I was hearing not to go outside be-
cause of the meltdown and to keep windows
closed. I stayed inside my apartment all day
with my computer trying to get more informa-
tion. Everybody was worried. Nobody knew
what to do or what to expect. The little, ev-
eryday things that worried me were no longer
important. I am still sitting in my apartment,
waiting to take action if needed.
I am concerned for those who are missing
and grieve with those who lost loved ones.

Gators out to avenge 2010 loss to Raiders at home


* UF FELL 12-11 LAST YEAR
TO COLGATE IN OVERTIME.

By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer
For the second time this season,
the No. 10 Gators are not only out
for a win. They are looking for re-
demption.
Of Florida's eight losses last
year, only two were within four
goals or fewer. The first was a 13-
11 heartbreaker at the hands of
Georgetown. The other? A 12-11


overtime upset by Colgate.
After avenging their loss to the
No. 13 Hoyas with a 17-10 victory
at home on March 9, the Gators (6-
1) have turned their attention to
the Raiders (3-3, 1-0).
"We want to beat them more
than Georgetown, I feel like, be-
cause we lost to them in overtime,"
sophomore Emily Dohony said
Saturday.
"We want to kill them like the
score of this game," she added,
referring to UF's 19-4 win over
Temple.
Colgate will come to Dizney


Stadium today at 6:30 p.m. to face
a UF team that has outscored op-
ponents by an average of nine
goals through five of its scheduled
nine straight home games this sea-
son. Florida split its only two road
games so far, with
the next coming
April 2 at Penn


Lacrosse


State.
"Last year, it


was a home game
for them. It was our first year, and
we weren't really a good traveling
team," Dohony said. "Our heads
weren't in the game. This year, we


have our fans, and we have our
home field."
The Raiders haven't been keep-
ing attackers away from goal, with
201 shots reaching their goalies this
season. This shortcoming plays
perfectly into Florida's attack, as
UF has outshot its opponent in
each game this season.
"Our defense is getting the ball
in our attackers' hands, and our
attackers are finishing " UF coach
Amanda O'Leary said. "It's a com-
bination of both, and they're start-
ing to really come together and
blend as a team, which is exactly


what you're wanting to see head-
ing into your conference play."
O'Leary expects Colgate to use
an offensive scheme that draws
defenders out then dumps the ball
within the 8-meter arc, but she said
the Raiders might reveal some sur-
prises like Georgetown did with its
full-field press.
"Each and every team we play is
going to throw something different
at us," O'Leary said. "Georgetown
threw a very different defense at us
... so we're going to have to play a
much better defense as a team ver-
sus individual defense."

Gators look to snap skid vs. 'Noles


FSU has won four straight over UF


Saj Guevara /Alligator Staff
Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan, left, said UF must simply play
better to halt its current four-game losing streak against FSU.


By JESSE SIMONTON
Alligator Staff Writer
jsimonton@alligator org

While the top-ranked Gators
won't admit they have a nemesis,
their adversary from Tallahassee
has certainly stepped into that role.
The Florida-Florida State base-
ball rivalry has been particularly
one-sided lately, as the Seminoles
have won five of the last six meet-
ings - including four straight -
and nine of the last 13.
Before No. 1 UF takes on No. 4
FSU tonight at 7 in McKethan Sta-
dium, coach Kevin O'Sullivan will
address the team as usual. But he
doesn't know exactly how it will
go.
"If you guys have any sugges-
tions, I don't know what to say,"
O'Sullivan said. "We've got to play
better.
"Florida State has played bet-
ter than we have. It's as simple as


that."
Earlier this month, the Semi-
noles (15-1) captured a 5-3 victory
in their annual showdown with the
Gators (14-2) in Tampa. In the loss,
a familiar issue plagued Florida: its
starting pitcher couldn't slow down
the FSU lineup.
In its last five losses against FSU,
UF's pitching staff has sported a
5.60 ERA, but the starters have been
putting the team in
Deep holes.
In the March 1
showdown, senior
Baseball right-hander Tom-
my Toledo went
just 2.1 innings, al-
lowing three runs and five baserun-
ners.
Highlighted by Anthony DeS-
clafani's wretched start on March
2, 2010, when he didn't escape the
first inning, Florida starters have
combined to toss just nine innings
with a 15.00 ERA in the five de-


feats.
Tonight, in the second of four
meetings this year between the in-
state rivals, lefty Alex Panteliodis
(1-0, 4.66 ERA) will toe the rubber
for his second start of the season.
The junior came on in relief two
weeks ago against Florida State,
throwing 2.2 innings and :Ill. i',
two runs.
"We've just got to play bet-
ter. There's nothing more to it,"
O'Sullivan said. "We've got to play
a whole lot better than we have in
the past."
Although the Seminoles ended
the Gators' season in last year's Col-
lege World Series, slugger Preston
Tucker said their recent struggles
aren't in the players' heads.
"I wouldn't say it's a mental
hump," Tucker said. "We need to
put things together. We need to
perform the way we know we can.
We've got a really good team, and I
think timely hitting, good pitching
and good defense is going to win
you ball games."

Quinn working with Muschamp to lead UF defense


* THE TWO COACHED
TOGETHER WITH THE MIAMI
DOLPHINS IN 2006.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@allgator org

Will Muschamp has made it per-
fectly clear he doesn't want a coach-
ing staff full of yes men at Florida.
But his defensive coordinator has all
the makings of a reliable right-hand
man, and that suits the new Gators
coach just fine.
When Florida's spring -....rl::II
practice opens Wednesday, Dan
Quinn will be installing his scheme
and calling plays for the Gators, but
he will work closely with the defen-
sive-minded Muschamp throughout
the process.
"Dan and I worked together be-
fore, so that's kind of why we get
along so well - we have a philo-
sophical belief in how you play,"
said Muschamp, who ran Auburn's
defense for two years and Texas' for
three before taking
Sthe job at Florida.
"I plan on him
calling it right now
as far as what we're
Football doing, but I'm go-
ing to be involved.
In my role, you play
to your strengths, and my strength
is on defense, special teams and re-
cruiting."
Quinn joins UF after 10 years in
the NFL, having worked with Mus-
champ on the Miami Dolphins staff
in 2005 and most recently as the
defensive line coach for the Seattle
Seahawks.
The two bonded instantly due to
their similar coaching philosophies,
and they remained in contact after
going their separate ways. Quinn
said he would often cross paths with


Muschamp at Auburn and Texas to
evaluate potential NFL prospects,
spending his down time visiting his
former co-worker.
So, when Muschamp said there
was an opening for a defensive co-
ordinator on his staff, Quinn's re-
sponse was never in question.
"[Muschamp] had all the right
stuff about him as a coach, and when
it came to having the opportunity to
work at a place like this, it really was
easy for me," Quinn said.


"I had a great experience in the
NFL, loved it and made some terrif-
ic connections with players, coaches
and front-office people, but it was
just a new challenge for me and
something I was looking forward to
doing.
"I don't know if anything can pre-
pare you for being a coordinator in
the SEC without having done it, but
my experience the last 10 years has
prepared me to play in big games
and be involved in that way."


Quinn said he hopes to turn the
Gators into a "4-3 team with 3-4
principles," and his philosophy falls
right between rushing four linemen
and all-out blitzing.
He encourages versatility in all
his players, something already evi-
dent in Ronald ..II11 s switch to
the "Buck" position (a hybrid defen-
sive end who can fall back into zone
or defend receivers), Josh Shaw's
move from cornerback to safety and
Leon Orr's transition from the offen-


sive line to defensive end.
But one consistent aspect of
Quinn's defense is its pressure on
the quarterback - an emphasis he
and Muschamp plan to bring to
Florida this season. It may not al-
ways show up as sacks in the box
score, but he and Muschamp share a
focus on "affecting" the quarterback
on every play.
"Will and I s.-. . -r.. i: ,11 alot inthe
same way," Quinn said. "That cown-
nection is what brought me here."


FLORIDA WTORS


Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff
Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn speaks to the media during the UF's spring practice preview press conference Monday in the South
End Zone meeting room in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Quinn will call UF's plays, but coach Will Muschamp will be highly involved on defense.

Gators taking No. 2 NCAA Tournament seed in stride


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

Even before the NCAA Tournament se-
lection show came to a close, the Gators were
facing criticism for receiving a No. 2 seed.
ESPN's Doug Gottheb called them the
tournament's "most overseeded" team, while
Charles Barkley said Florida was overrated.
Even some of UF's players were surprised
by the decision.


"The two seed kind of shocked me," se-
nior forward Chandler Parsons said. "But I
think we deserve it. I'm happy with it."
With the exception of Sunday's 70-54 loss
to Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference
Tournament finals, the Gators closed the sea-
son as hot as any team in the nation.
But early season losses to Jacksonville and
UCF were significant blemishes on an other-
wise-strong resume, and many assumed they
would keep Florida off the No. 2 line.
"I had a feeling we were going to be a


three seed, ',..,.--l " Parsons said.
Although projected as
a three by most prognos-
ticators, coach Billy Dono-
van said Florida's No. 7
nonconference strength of

Gators earn


WNIT bid, to


face UMBC
By MATT WATTS
Alligator Writer

The Florida women's basketball team will fin-
ish its season exactly where it began: in the Na-
tional Invitation Tournament.
After being left out of the NCAA Tournament
discussion, Florida (18-14) will host Maryland Bal-
timore County (20-11) on Friday in the O'Connell
Center in the first round of the Women's NIT.
Only four Southeastern Conference teams (Ten-
nessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Georgia) were
selected to participate in the Big Dance and, for the
second straight year, the Gators were left at home.
UF has been to three NITs and only one NCAA
Tournament in coach Amanda Butler's four years
as head coach.
Following the loss to Tennessee in the SEC
Tournament, Butler said she felt
her team had done enough to be
considered for the field of 64.
Wom e n's The Gators won four of their
Basketball last five games to close out the
Basketball season. Florida notched quality
wins over Tournament teams
Georgia, Vanderbilt and Central Florida. UF lost
by one point to DePaul and by two points to Flori-
da State, both No. 3 seeds in the Tournament.
UF, ranked No. 50 in RPI according to realtim-
erpi.com, finished eighth in the SEC with an 8-10
record and played the 11th-toughest schedule in
the nation.
But eight losses in 10 games late in the SEC
schedule, as well as losses to Brown and Hampton,
likely did in the Gators' chances.
South Carolina received the SEC's automatic
bid for the NIT and Florida was one of four at-
large teams selected from the conference. The SEC
had just two teams in the NIT last season.
UMBC won the regular-season American East
championship and earned an automatic bid to
WNIT. The ticket prices and tip-off time have yet
to be determined.


Smith suspended after DUI charge


* THE SENIOR WAS ARRESTED

Florida senior center fielder Bryson

arrest late Sunday on a charge of driving
under the influence.

didn't make a difference where they were
seeded, the No. 2 spot may have both positive
and negative effects on the team's postseason.
While the higher seed is meant to give UF
an easier path to the Sweet 16, it also puts a
target on the Gators' backs.
"We're going to get every team's best shot
because we are the two seed and a lot of peo-
ple have stuff to say about that," sophomore
guard Kenny Boynton said. "What it's going
to come down to is who wants to win the
most."
Parsons said what experts think about their
seed is insignificant, and Florida is only fo-
cused on its next opponent.
Boynton took a different approach, saying
his team can be inspired by the criticism.
"We're going to use the most motivation
we can," Boynton said. "They don't feel like
we're a two, so we'll show them."

PARSONS, DONOVAN WIN AP AWARDS: Af-
ter winning the SEC Player and Coach of the
Year Awards from the conference's coaches last
week, Chandler Parsons and Billy Donovan

same accolades from The Associated Press.
Guard Erving Walker was also honored,
earning a spot on the AP's All-SEC second
team.
"I'm honored to be noticed for what I do
out there: playing unselfish, playing team ball,"
Parsons said. "I couldn't do it without my
teammates and my coaches, so it's just a huge
blessing for me."


O'Sullivan said in a statement Monday.
Smith was stopped by a Gainesville
Police Department
officer at 11:50 p.m.

nessed Smith make
two wide turns and
drift into the curb on

performed the traffic
stop, he observed Smith swaying while
standing outside of the car, according to
the arrest report. He also noted Smith's


eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and
there was a smell of alcohol coming
from his breath.
While standing with the officer,
Smith urinated himself, according to the
report. He said he only drank one beer
and was picking up a group of friends
from 101 Cantina.
Smith was then arrested and trans-
ported to the Alachua County Jail,
where he refused to give a breath sam-
ple to the officer and was booked at 1
a.m. Monday morning.
Smith has since been released from
the jail.

Muschamp defends



UF's closed practices


* FLORIDA'S FIRST SPRING
SESSION IS ON WEDNESDAY.

By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Staff Writer
achiang@alligator org

One of Will Muschamp's first deci-
sions as Florida's head coach has been
met with disapproval from the fans.
But he isn't letting that bother him.
Since the team announced last
Wednesday that spring practices
were going to be closed to the public
and media, it has been a popular topic
of discussion among those interested
in the Gators.
"I have got to make a decision
that I think is best for the program
and what's about winning . - ,l:II
games and doing it the right way,"
Muschamp said. "Unfortunately, in
my position when you do make deci-
sions, you affect a whole lot of people,
and there are always going to be peo-
ple that don't like the decision being
made."
Muschamp is already distancing
himself from Urban Meyer, as Meyer
never closed spring practices during
his tenure at Florida.
The Gators will begin practice
Wednesday, culminating April 9 with
the Orange and Blue game, which
will be open to the public.
"We need to concentrate on us
right now," Muschamp said. "We


need to get better and continue to de-
velop the identity of what we want to
be as a - .. .rl: - I team on both sides of
the ball and on special teams."

POSITION CHANGES: As expected, the
quarterback position is going to look
a little different next season.
Trey Burton and Jordan Reed, who
both saw time in the shotgun last year,
are moving away from that spot.
Muschamp announced Monday
that Reed will become a full-time
tight end. Burton will focus on lin-
ing up out wide and in the backfield


in a versatile position
termed F-21.


Also, Leon Orr has
moved from offen-
sive line to defensive
Football tackle, and Gerald
Christian will play
linebacker next season, along with a
little bit of fullback and tight end, his
original position, in short-yardage
situations.

INJURIES: Florida will be missing
some players during spring practice.
Cornerback Janons Jenkins (shoul-
der), running back Mike Blakely
(shoulder) and linebacker Neiron Ball
(congenital syndrome) will all be ab-
sent from UF's practices due to injury.
Running back Jeff Demps will also
stay off the held as he spends the se-
mester running for the track and field
team.


Before the Gators be-
gin their 2011 spring
practice season on
Wednesday, take a
first look at UF's initial
depth chart. It omits
players missing or
limited in the spring
due to injuries or other
athletic commitments,
coach Will Muschamp
said Monday.

Offensive coordina-
tor Charlie Weis ex-
plained the chart's de-
tails, particularly the
F-21, F-12 and F-11
positions. The first
number refers to how
many players line up
in the backfield, while
the second shows the
number of tight ends.
For example: When
Deonte Thompson is
the F-ll, UF will line
up one running back,
one tight end and
three receivers.

"Instead of giving you
some bogus depth
chart that doesn't' re-
ally tell you anything
and just lines up with
two wide receivers,
we figured we would
give you ... what we
are thinking," Weis
said.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 Friends raise money for student's battle 0 BRYNO GAY WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA LAST MONTH AND HIS INSURANCE MAY NOT COVER ALL OF HIS EXPENSES. By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer Just three days after learning he had Hodgkin's lymphoma, 20-year-old UF student Bryno Gay wanted to run in a 5K charity race. While his friends convinced him to take it easy that day, it was that mindset that prompted Gay's friend and housemate Nico Sayavedra to launch a "Helping Bryno Beat Lymphoma" Facebook group the following week to raise money for Gay and to provide a place for people to provide emotional 4 support for him through comments. People have donated about $2,000 since Sayavedra started the Web page on Feb. 8. It has 841 members. Some donations have come from Gay's friends while others have come from people who didn't know him personally but were touched by his story. Gay has Stage 3 lymphoma. His fiancee, Tina Diem Tham Nguyen, noticed a lump on his throat last fall, and he had a biopsy in January, Sayavedra said. He was surprised when Gay told him about his diagnosis, partly because Gay had always been dedicated to eating healthy and exercising. "I was devastated. I ended up giving him a hug and crying, but I was trying not to do that," Sayavedra said. "I wanted to stay strong." Gay's treatments may cost between $200,000 and $250,000, but his insurance may not cover all expenses, in which case Gay may have to pay between $15,000 and $45,000 for medical treatments, Sayavedra said. A greater financial strain Gay faces is the need to pay back some of his student grants because he isn't a full-time student this semester, having taken medical leave after his diagnoSpecial to the Alligator sis.

Journalism dept. names new chair HE WILL START JUNE 1. 1b t By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer As it prepares for a curriculum overhaul for new students, UF's journalism department will be led by a new chairman. Wayne Wanta, who was an associate professor at UF from 1999 to 2001, was named the new head of the department Monday. Wanta, who is leaving his position as the Welch-Bridgewater chairman of sports journalism at Oklahoma State University, was praised by interim chairman David Ostroff as one of the top journalism academics inAmerica. Ostroff added that his familiarity with UF was a big selling point. "Because he's been on faculty before, he knows the culture a little bit," Ostroff said. William McKeen, who led the department since 1998, left UF last year for a position at Boston University. Since then, Ostroff, who is also the telecommunications department chairman, has led the journalism department. John Wright, the dean of the College of Journalism and Communications, said another of Wanta's selling points was his experience with sports journalism and international journalism. Wright said he expects Wanta to work with the University Athletic Association to expand the journalism school's involvement with GatorZone. com and GatorVision, the athletic association's news programs, and further the sports journalism options at UP. Wanta has eight years of newspaper experience, which includes jobs at the Austin American-Statesman, The Albuquerque Journal and The Wisconsin State Journal, as well as 27 years of teaching experience. Wanta's one shortcoming, Wright said, is his lack of administrative experience.

Ostroff said he'll help ease Wanta into his position, most likely starting with assigning graduate assistants to different classes for the fall semester.

4, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 Japan nuclear plants can't be rebuilt NUCLEAR, from page 1 The impacted power plants must release some radiation-containing gases to relieve pressures in the core, but Hintenlang doesn't expect the emissions to cause long-term damage because winds should sweep most of the gases toward the ocean. It will probably take a couple weeks to fully cool the reactors and stop the nuclear reactions, but the plants won't be usable again. The plants are using saltwater to cool the cores, which can cause corrosion. Paired with the structural damage, these problems put the operations in a tough spot. "Those plants will never operate again unless they rebuild them from the ground up," he said. Hintenlang said it could take years to fully disassemble the plants. Despite the country's post-earthquake nuclear problems, he doesn't expect them to make Japanese people leery of nuclear power use. "I think the Japanese people by and large accept technology and have embraced nuclear power largely because they don't have other options," he said. Yasuo Uotate, a UF Japanese lecturer from Japan, said in an e-mail interview that he felt many Japanese people were uncomfortable with having nuclear power plants in the country but understood its necessity. "Most Japanese people have never liked having nuclear power plants," he said. "However, some towns couldn't reject having one .[for] financial and political reasons." "I believe that compared with people in other nations, Japanese people are more prepared for incidents such as an earthquake and a tsunami." Yasuo Uotate UF Japanese Lecturer Japan's lack of natural resources such as gas and oil also makes nuclear power an important option, Uotate said. He said he expected the nuclear power plant problems to make Japan more cautious about building new ones, and said stricter guidelines for crisis management at plants should be implemented. "I believe that compared with people in other nations, Japanese people are more prepared for incidents such as an earthquake and a tsunami," he said. "However, I don't think regular Japanese people are prepared for nuclear power plant problems." $3,000 has been raised BRYNO, from page 1 grant costs back.

Gay is a member of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, a Floridabased group that provides housing for financially needy students. There are five of these houses at UF, and Gay lives with Sayavedra and fourteen other students in one of them. The organization has been very supportive of Gay, donating 80 percent of the proceeds from their annual "Date and Cake" auction, where they auction a variety of desserts and many students as "dates," to his medical costs. So far, they have raised $1,100 for Gay. The SSF is also letting Gay continue to live in the organization house through the fall, although normally the SSF requires that all students living in its houses must be full-time students. Gay's friends visit him often when he is at Shands Hospital. His roommate, James Welch, comes to see him almost every day that he's there. "I love him like a brother, and I wasn't going to let him go through this by himself," Welch said. The fundraising efforts for Gay have caught the attention of many, including Jamal Sowell, special assistant to UF President Bernie Machen and a former UF student body president. Sowell wants to discuss potential fundraising options for Gay, and Sayavedra hopes to meet with him this week. With more than $3,000 raised for Gay in a month-and-a-half, Sayavedra hopes to see that total grow.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Students bring new non-profit organization to UF The group will be dedicated to feeding the poor By MARISA GOTTESMAN Alligator Contributing Writer Three UF students are working to bring the third-largest international relief and development charity in the United States closer to campus. Since summer, Kayla Cochran, Krista Hadeed and Ashley Quintal have been coordinating, meeting and planning the debut of Students for the Poor at UF. The student group would represent Food for the Poor, a national organization that gives more than 96 percent of its profits to feeding the poor and providing emergency relief to citizens of 17 Caribbean and Latin American nations. Students for the Poor will hold its first On meeting on March 22 in Little Hall, Room 125. Cochran expects there to be about 30 people in attendance. Cochran, a sophomore English major and co-founder and secretary of the group, was looking to get involved in a nonprofit organization. "I was especially interested in a nonprofit that had a big emphasis on Haiti," Cochran said. SFP is different because it teaches sustainability. The organization is founded on the principle of teaching a man to fish in order to provide for himself, said Hadeed, a junior linguistics major and co-founder and president of group. Quintal, a sophomore accounting major and another cofounder, said building a tilapia farm overseas is a way the organization can sustainably help the poor. Cochran said the goal of the first meeting is to present the organization and tell students what they can do to help the poor. Patient service seeks drivers By JACOB ROMOSER Alligator Contributing Writer Barb Thomas is happy to welcome both friends and strangers into her yellow 1976 Ford Maverick. All of Thomas's passengers have one thing in common: They have been diagnosed with cancer. Thomas, 57, who fought and won her own battle against the disease five years ago, now helps current cancer patients with their struggle. She is one of 13 active drivers for the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program in Alachua County. The program pairs cancer patients who lack transportation with volunteer drivers, who pick up patients from their homes, drive them to their treatment facilities and take them back home once the treatment is over. "It is an invaluable service for patients who don't have any other way of getting to their treatment," Thomas said. The program, however, has hit a roadblock. According to Mel Toran, an area executive director with the American Cancer Society, Road to Recovery's need for volunteers is desperate. "People are missing their treatments due to lack of transportation," he said. "It is an invaluable service for patients who don't have any other way of getting to their treatment. Barb Thomas volunteer Toran and Thomas agree that a combination of high gas prices and a struggling economy are to blame for the lack of volunteers. "Sometimes I drive once a month, sometimes four," Thomas said. "It's a great way to give back after all the help I received while I was in their shoes." If you're interested in volunteering, call 800227-2345. Armed men take iPhone By KAT BEIN Alligator Staff Writer Stephon Lewis brought $650 of his own money when he met the UF student hoping to sell his iPhone 4, but Lewis' friend brought a gun. Lewis, a 22-year-old UF employee, was contacted a few weeks ago by his lifelong friend Raymond Stephenson about robbing a person on Craigslist of his iPhone, according to a Gainesville Police report. They responded to the student's online advertisement and agreed to meet him Sunday at Lexington Crossing Apartments, 3700 SW 27th St. At 9:40 p.m., Lewis met the student at the basketball courts in the complex. Stephenson and another man walked up to Lewis and the student with handguns and said, "This is a robbery," according to the report. The two armed men took the phone and the money and ran away. Lewis told police he was supposed to get his money back from Stephenson later. Lewis was arrested by 11:40 p.m., and he adLewis mitted to police that he had helped plan the robbery. Text messages confirmed he knew guns would be involved. He is charged with armed robbery.

6, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 Empathy Lesson Suggestions for approaching a disaster Our hearts go out to the nation of Japan, which is coping with a natural disaster combined with nuclear threat, the likes of which it has never seen. Most of us have witnessed the horrific images of the damage in the wake of this confluence of problems, be it via Internet, television or newspaper. As we have seen time and again, such events bring out the best in people. They can also highlight the worst. We wonder if someone can publish a disaster policy guide to show individuals, businesses and media how to respond to such a scenario. We're no experts on the topic, but with our experience in catastrophe-related distastefulness, we 'd like to volunteer some suggestions. Suggestion One: Don't crack jokes at the expense of a devastated area. It's both unpalatable and unfunny. Gilbert Gottfried, who was fired from his voice-over work with Aflac for tweeting terrible tsunami jokes, knows what we mean. Suggestion Two: Don't try to harness the human urge to help in order to advertise your products, no matter how tempting and goodhearted it may seem to do so. Microsoft will remember this rule after the scathing response to a Twitter post. The company told people it would donate a dollar for every re-tweet of a post, but the idea came off as a marketing ploy gone completely wrong. It sounded like people had to choose between increasing Bing's popularity or letting Japan go without their help. The relief effort shouldn't come with product placement opportunities. Suggestion Three: Give it to us straight. If you don't know what's happening, tell us so, but don't make the situation sound worse than it is. It's a disaster. People are dying and having their worlds dramatically changed. In the face of such a pervading sense of hopelessness, you shouldn't make people worry more than they need to. Here, we look to all the news channels that reported on the nuclear situation in Japan before they had confirmation from any officials with the foreign government. We watched CNN cycle through guest after guest, fishing for bits of alarming information unearthed only by stripping away the logical explanations of various experts. Other channels were little better. Which brings us to Suggestion Four: Be polite. This one's also directed to the media. As we watched the painful discussions the news channels had with nuclear experts, it dawned on us how rude the anchors were. They not only badgered guests with questions but they then misconstrued their words or sought out someone willing to advocate a more outlandish theory. It's no time for joking, cashing in or misrepresenting information, but rather a time to be upfront and thoughtful. We can only hope people who lose their way after such an unfathomable event -ourselves included -could remember to be empathetic in times like these. Remember that even if they're on the other side of the world, the victims deserve that much. a ll e independent ftorida ali gto r 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 will be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

PLAPE LEt T E N ABOQ CH~E HEEN. / / / Major selection: security over dreams y mother recently forwarded me an article that listed some popular college degrees, spotlighting ones the author considered "winners" and "losers." His rankings are not the focus, but rather the article's topic. As a college student, I have many friends who graduated with bachelor's degrees and are putting them to little use at restaurants and retail stores. Understandably, it takes talent, persistence and luck to land any entry-level job, especially in the current market, but should four or more hard years of collegiate work result in jobs also held by high school teens? It seems ridiculous, unfair even, but with some of the degrees many students choose to pursue, they find themselves emotionally satisfied but unable to secure stable employment. For many people this is irrelevant -their ships on collegiate years having sailed -but for those of us still exploring academia, picking majors, minors, internships and the like, it's imperative we make smart choices now. "If you love what you do, you don't work a day in your life." How many times have we heard that one? In theory, it's brilliant. Find something you love, pursue it with all your heart despite the odds, and you'll end up employed with a contented smile on your face. However, I'm a bit of a skeptic and find this a little too sweet to palate. It would be incredible if I could make money designing jewelry or playing professional basketball, but things don't happen that way for everyone. A very small percentage of people are lucky enough to have the resources and opportunities coincide to allow them to work and play simultaneously, but for the rest of us it comes down to practicality. Don't get me wrong, I admire those who follow their passions and have the confidence and drive to achieve their choice of career, but who has a passion for finance, chemistry or accounting? Nobody loves those classes or spends hours dreaming about equity mortgages and market portfolios, but those are the practical skills that will allow graduates an easier job search and stable pay opportunities. More Laura Ellermeyer letters@aIligator org and more of the passion-chasers are finding themselves out of luck after college, but four years of hard work and thousands of dollars aren't easily forgotten. It's a fine balance between what you love and what is practical, and college is the time to get serious about the equilibrium. I'm not trying to knock any degrees here, as they all take talent and dedication to achieve. I just want to point out the inopportune situation some graduates face when they choose a degree out of pure passion and no practicality. As it'll say at the end of this column, my major is finance and, honestly, it kind of sucks. I'll put it on the record I am in this area almost solely for post-collegiate rewards in a job search, and hopefully financial security and job stability. Those are things I've chosen to value, and they reflect in my degree choice. Is it selling out? Maybe, but after years of thinking on it, I've decided it's the smartest choice for me. As for that article, the author urges the dreamers to keep up their zeal for their studies, preparing themselves for a possible difficult job search, and I'd like to do the same. College is a place to blossom and learn about the world and yourself, but let's not forget why we're here. Eventually, we'll want homes and cars and we'll have kids who need clothes and food. While it may seem distant now, it's closer than we think. Make your collegiate years count. Be social, make connections, learn life skills and, most importantly, leave UF armed with a degree you are proud of and will take you as far as you'd like to go. Twenty years from now, it probably won't really matter what you majored in, but right now, it does. Laura Ellenneyer is afirst-yearfinance maor.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 G00 61, aimfV -0i loiilrl OhUnY Tial1 Bois Stte lumn shresaccont f Jpanee erthuak Aiko Kuromori is a Boise State alumna who lives in Tokyo, Japan. Aiko was at work when the earthquake hit. What follows is her story. Iwas at my office when the earthquake struck with a sudden shock that shook my office building. I felt a drop in my stomach as I ducked under the table. The lateral movement changed into a parallel movement. It got stronger and stronger. I held onto my colleague. I was shaking in fear, hoping it would stop. I was on the 20th floor of my office, and the quake lasted for 10 minutes. It felt like centuries. Other buildings around us were rocking as if they were trees in the wind. The thought of death crossed my mind. After the first earthquake slowed, we evacuated from that floor to the floor above so we were all on the same floor. They gave us helmets, and we sat under desks. My co-worker and I held hands. She told me that she was rahappy not to die with a stranger. Then the second big earthquake hit us. We closed our eyes tight and, with sweaty palms, held hands. I noticed that had we ducked underneath a desk next to the window. I mentally prepared myself in case the window shattered. All I could think of was just wanting to be on the ground and not in a skyscraper. Everybody was safe. We gathered around the TV to find out what had happened. On the screen they showed the Sendai Tsunami. A 30-foot-high wave was eating the city alive. Houses were being washed away. It was as if I was watching the film "Independence Day." I surrendered myself to Mother Nature. I realized how frail we are in the face of natural disaster. The fear I had experienced was nothing compared to what the people in Miyagi Aiko Kuromori and Sendai were expeUWire riencing. Moments later I saw a huge explosion in the sky. The Cosmo Oil storage facility in Chiba had exploded. The explosion was followed by a fiery red mushroom cloud. I saw it behind the skyscrapers. Trying to comprehend soemthing like that is the weirdest feeling. I went back to my desk and saw the same explosion on the screen. On a different screen there was an enormous whirlpool that was triggered by the earthquake. We finally got the all-clear to leave the building and we got to the ground. It was such a relief to be on the ground. However, we couldn't use our cell phones and the trains were not running. There was a four-hour line at the taxi stand. Some people ended up sleeping at the office or on the ground at the train station. The next day I went to the store to buy water and food, and the shelves were empty. All I got was a ton of chocolate. When I got home, I heard the news about the Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant explosion. The nuclear power plant is 125 miles from where I live. I don't have a TV, so I relied on social media, e-mail and text messaging for information. All sorts of rumors were spreading. I was hearing not to go outside because of the meltdown and to keep windows closed. I stayed inside my apartment all day with my computer trying to get more information. Everybody was worried. Nobody knew what to do or what to expect. The little, everyday things that worried me were no longer important. I am still sitting in my apartment, waiting to take action if needed. I am concerned for those who are missing and grieve with those who lost loved ones.

8, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 Gators out to avenge 2010 loss to Raiders at home 0 UF FELL 12-11 LAST YEAR TO COLGATE IN OVERTIME. By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer For the second time this season, the No. 10 Gators are not only out for a win. They are looking for redemption. Of Florida's eight losses last year, only two were within four goals or fewer. The first was a 1311 heartbreaker at the hands of Georgetown. The other? A 12-11 overtime upset by Colgate. After avenging their loss to the No. 13 Hoyas with a 17-10 victory at home on March 9, the Gators (61) have turned their attention to the Raiders (3-3, 1-0). "We want to beat them more than Georgetown, I feel like, because we lost to them in overtime," sophomore Emily Dohony said Saturday. "We want to kill them like the score of this game," she added, referring to UF's 19-4 win over Temple. Colgate will come to Dizney Stadium today at 6:30 p.m. to face a UF team that has outscored opponents by an average of nine goals through five of its scheduled nine straight home games this season. Florida split its only two road games so far, with the next coming April 2 at Penn State. Lacrosse "Last year, it was a home game for them. It was our first year, and we weren't really a good traveling team," Dohony said. "Our heads weren't in the game. This year, we have our fans, and we have our home field." The Raiders haven't been keeping attackers away from goal, with 201 shots reaching their goalies this season. This shortcoming plays perfectly into Florida's attack, as UF has outshot its opponent in each game this season. "Our defense is getting the ball in our attackers' hands, and our attackers are finishing," UF coach Amanda O'Leary said. "It's a combination of both, and they're starting to really come together and blend as a team, which is exactly what you're wanting to see heading into your conference play." O'Leary expects Colgate to use an offensive scheme that draws defenders out then dumps the ball within the 8-meter arc, but she said the Raiders might reveal some surprises like Georgetown did with its full-field press. "Each and every team we play is going to throw something different at us," O'Leary said. "Georgetown threw a very different defense at us .so we're going to have to play a much better defense as a team versus individual defense." -I I |"A"' I" REGISTER TODAY AT alligator.org REGISTRATION IS FREE AND ENDS 12:00 P.M.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 9 Gators look to snap skid vs. 'Noles FSU has won four straight over UF By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsimonton@alligator org While the top-ranked Gators won't admit they have a nemesis, their adversary from Tallahassee has certainly stepped into that role. The Florida-Florida State baseball rivalry has been particularly one-sided lately, as the Seminoles have won five of the last six meetings -including four straight and nine of the last 13. Before No. 1 UF takes on No. 4 FSU tonight at 7 in McKethan Stadium, coach Kevin O'Sullivan will address the team as usual. But he doesn't know exactly how it will go. "If you guys have any suggestions, I don't know what to say," O'Sullivan said. "We've got to play better. "Florida State has played better than we have. It's as simple as that." Earlier this month, the Seminoles (15-1) captured a 5-3 victory in their annual showdown with the Gators (14-2) in Tampa. In the loss, a familiar issue plagued Florida: its starting pitcher couldn't slow down the FSU lineup. In its last five losses against FSU, UF's pitching staff has sported a 5.60 ERA, but the starters have been putting the team in A deep holes. In the March 1 showdown, senior Baseball right-hander Tommy Toledo went just 2.1 innings, allowing three runs and five baserunners. Highlighted by Anthony DeSclafani's wretched start on March 2, 2010, when he didn't escape the first inning, Florida starters have combined to toss just nine innings with a 15.00 ERA in the five defeats. Tonight, in the second of four meetings this year between the instate rivals, lefty Alex Panteliodis (1-0, 4.66 ERA) will toe the rubber for his second start of the season. The junior came on in relief two weeks ago against Florida State, throwing 2.2 innings and allowing two runs. "We've just got to play better. There's nothing more to it," O'Sullivan said. "We've got to play a whole lot better than we have in the past." Although the Seminoles ended the Gators' season in last year's College World Series, slugger Preston Tucker said their recent struggles aren't in the players' heads. "I wouldn't say it's a mental hump," Tucker said. "We need to put things together. We need to perform the way we know we can. We've got a really good team, and I think timely hitting, good pitching and good defense is going to win you ball games." Stella & Dot is your dream internship in fashion and social selling.

Sports TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org Quinn working with Muschamp to lead UF defense THE TWO COACHED TOGETHER WITH THE MIAMI DOLPHINS IN 2006. By ADAM BERRY Alligator Staff Writer a berry@a Iligator org Will Muschamp has made it perfectly clear he doesn't want a coaching staff full of yes men at Florida. But his defensive coordinator has all the makings of a reliable right-hand man, and that suits the new Gators coach just fine. When Florida's spring football practice opens Wednesday, Dan Quinn will be installing his scheme and calling plays for the Gators, but he will work closely with the defensive-minded Muschamp throughout the process. "Dan and I worked together before, so that's kind of why we get along so well -we have a philosophical belief in how you play," said Muschamp, who ran Auburn's defense for two years and Texas' for three before taking the job at Florda. "I plan on him calling it rght now as far as what we're Football doing, but I'm going to be involved. In my role, you play to your strengths, and my strength is on defense, special teams and recruiting." Quinn joins UF after 10 years in the NFL, having worked with Muschamp on the Miami Dolphins staff in 2005 and most recently as the defensive line coach for the Seattle Seahawks. The two bonded instantly due to their similar coaching philosophies, and they remained in contact after going their separate ways. Quinn said he would often cross paths with Muschamp at Auburn and Texas to evaluate potential NFL prospects, spending his down lime visiting his former co-worker. So, when Muschamp said there was an opening for a defensive coordinator on his staff, Quinn's response was never in question. "[Muschamp] had all the right stuff about him as a coach, and when it came to having the opportunity to work at a place like this, it really was easy for me," Quinn said. "I had a great experience in the NFL, loved it and made some terrific connections with players, coaches and front-office people, but it was just a new challenge for me and something I was looking forward to doing. "I don't know if anything can prepare you for being a coordinator in the SEC without having done it, but my experience the last 10 years has prepared me to play in big games and be involved in that way." Quinn said he hopes to turn the Gators into a "4-3 team with 3-4 principles," and his philosophy falls right between rushing four linemen and all-out blitzing. He encourages versatility in all his players, something already evident in Ronald Powell's switch to the "Buck" position (a hybrid defensive end who can fall back into zone or defend receivers), Josh Shaw's move from cornerback to safety and Leon Orr's transition from the offensive line to defensive end. But one consistent aspect of Quinn's defense is its pressure on the quarterback -an emphasis he and Muschamp plan to bring to Florida this season. It may not always show up as sacks in the box score, but he and Muschamp share a focus on "affecting" the quarterback on every play. "Will and I see football a lot in the same way," Quinn said. "That cownnection is what brought me here." If FLRIDA GA TOMS Matt Tripp/ Alligator Staff Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn speaks to the media during the UF's spring practice preview press conference Monday in the South End Zone meeting room in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Quinn will call UF's plays, but coach Will Muschamp will be highly involved on defense. UF MEN'S BASKETBALL Gators taking No. 2 NCAA Tournament seed in stride By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org Even before the NCAA Tournament selection show came to a close, the Gators were facing criticism for receiving a No. 2 seed. ESPN's Doug Gottlieb called them the tournament's "most overseeded" team, while Charles Barkley said Flonda was overrated. Even some of UF's players were surprised by the decision. "The two seed kind of shocked me," senior forward Chandler Parsons said. "But I think we deserve it. I'm happy with it." With the exception of Sunday's 70-54 loss to Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference Tournament finals, the Gators closed the season as hot as any team in the nation. But early season losses to Jacksonville and UCF were significant blemishes on an otherwise-strong resume, and many assumed they would keep Florida off the No. 2 line. "I had a feeling we were going to be a three seed, honestly," Parsons said. Although projected as a three by most prognosticators, coach Billy Donovan said Florida's No. 7 -nonconference strength of schedule and 11 wins over RPI top-50 teams were enough to push the Gators Parsons over the top. SEC Commissioner and former member of the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee Mike Slive advised Donovan that scheduling a difficult nonconference slate would be critical, and the committee is less concerned with how a team performs in the conference portion of its season. "I wasn't necessarily surpnsed by it," Donovan said. "We probably got rewarded for the whole body of work of what happened during the course of the season."

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Smith suspended after DUI charge Gators earn WNIT bid, to face UMBC By MATT WATTS Alligator Writer The Florida women's basketball team will finish its season exactly where it began: in the National Invitation Tournament. After being left out of the NCAA Tournament discussion, Florida (18-14) will host Maryland Baltimore County (20-11) on Friday in the O'Connell Center in the first round of the Women's NIT. Only four Southeastern Conference teams (Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Georgia) were selected to participate in the Big Dance and, for the second straight year, the Gators were left at home. UF has been to three NITs and only one NCAA Tournament in coach Amanda Butler's four years as head coach. Following the loss to Tennessee in the SEC Tournament, Butler said she felt her team had done enough to be considered for the field of 64. Women's The Gators won four of their last five games to close out the Basketball season. Florida notched quality wins over Tournament teams Georgia, Vanderbilt and Central Florida. UF lost by one point to DePaul and by two points to Florida State, both No. 3 seeds in the Tournament. UF, ranked No. 50 in RPI according to realtimerpi.com, finished eighth in the SEC with an 8-10 record and played the 11th-toughest schedule in the nation. But eight losses in 10 games late in the SEC schedule, as well as losses to Brown and Hampton, likely did in the Gators' chances. South Carolina received the SEC's automatic bid for the NIT and Florida was one of four atlarge teams selected from the conference. The SEC had just two teams in the NIT last season. UMBC won the regular-season American East championship and earned an automatic bid to WNIT. The ticket prices and tip-off time have yet to be determined. didn't make a difference where they were seeded, the No. 2 spot may have both positive and negative effects on the team's postseason. While the higher seed is meant to give UF an easier path to the Sweet 16, it also puts a target on the Gators' backs. "We're going to get every team's best shot because we are the two seed and a lot of people have stuff to say about that," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. "What it's going to come down to is who wants to win the most." Parsons said what experts think about their seed is insignificant, and Florida is only focused on its next opponent. Boynton took a different approach, saying his team can be inspired by the criticism. "We're going to use the most motivation we can," Boynton said. "They don't feel like we're a two, so we'll show them." PARSONS, DONOVAN WIN AP AWARDS: After winning the SEC Player and Coach of the Year Awards from the conference's coaches last week, Chandler Parsons and Billy Donovan completed a season sweep by garnering the same accolades from The Associated Press. Guard Erving Walker was also honored, earning a spot on the AP's All-SEC second team. "I'm honored to be noticed for what I do out there: playing unselfish, playing team ball," Parsons said. "I couldn't do it without my teammates and my coaches, so it's just a huge blessing for me." O'Sullivan said in a statement Monday. Smith was stopped by a Gainesville Police Department officer at 11:50 p.m. at 1600 NW 23rd St after the officer witnessed Smith make two wide turns and drift into the curb on NW 16th Avenue. When the officer performed the traffic stop, he observed Smith swaying while standing outside of the car, according to the arrest report. He also noted Smith's eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and there was a smell of alcohol coming from his breath. While standing with the officer, Smith urinated himself, according to the report. He said he only drank one beer and was picking up a group of friends from 101 Cantina. Smith was then arrested and transported to the Alachua County Jail, where he refused to give a breath sample to the officer and was booked at 1 a.m. Monday morning. Smith has since been released from the jail. 3. Ervinm Wakeir, J%. Despite poor performances against Kentucky and at Vanderbilt, Walker claimed the final spot in our rankings.

16, ALLIGATOR U TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 Muschamp defends UF's closed practices FLORIDA'S FIRST SPRING SESSION IS ON WEDNESDAY. By ANTHONY CHIANG Alligator Staff Writer achiang@alligator org One of Will Muschamp's first decisions as Florida's head coach has been met with disapproval from the fans. But he isn't letting that bother him. Since the team announced last Wednesday that spring practices were going to be closed to the public and media, it has been a popular topic of discussion among those interested in the Gators. "I have got to make a decision that I think is best for the program and what's about winning football games and doing it the right way," Muschamp said. "Unfortunately, in my position when you do make decisions, you affect a whole lot of people, and there are always going to be people that don't like the decision being made." Muschamp is already distancing himself from Urban Meyer, as Meyer never closed spring practices during his tenure at Florida. The Gators will begin practice Wednesday, culminating April 9 with the Orange and Blue game, which will be open to the public. "We need to concentrate on us right now," Muschamp said. "We need to get better and continue to develop the identity of what we want to be as a football team on both sides of the ball and on special teams." POSITION CHANGES: As expected, the quarterback position is going to look a little different next season. Trey Burton and Jordan Reed, who both saw time in the shotgun last year, are moving away from that spot. Muschamp announced Monday that Reed will become a full-time tight end. Burton will focus on lining up out wide and in the backfield in a versatile position termed F-21. Also, Leon Orr has moved from offensive line to defensive Football tackle, and Gerald Christian will play linebacker next season, along with a little bit of fullback and tight end, his original position, in short-yardage situations. INJURIES: Flonda will be missing some players during spring practice. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins (shoulder), running back Mike Blakely (shoulder) and linebacker Neiron Ball (congenital syndrome) will all be absent from UF's practices due to injury. Running back Jeff Demps will also stay off the field as he spends the semester running for the track and field team. Before the Gators begin their 2011 spring practice season on Wednesday, take a first look at UF's initial depth chart. It omits players missing or limited in the spring due to injuries or other athletic commitments, coach Will Muschamp said Monday. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis explained the chart's details, particularly the F-21, F-12 and F-11 positions. The first number refers to how many players line up in the backfield, while the second shows the number of tight ends. For example: When Deonte Thompson is the F-11, UF will line up one running back, one tight end and three receivers. "Instead of giving you some bogus depth chart that doesnt' really tell you anything and just lines up with two wide receivers, we figured we would give you .what we are thinking," Weis said.

David Hintenlang, interim chairman of the UF Nuclear and Radiological Engineering Department, doesn’t believe the plants’ cooling problems will cause long-term damage to the country or its people. “You see ‘nuclear’ [and] it gets big headlines as a nuclear disaster,” Hintenlang said. “For the general public, I don’t think there’s a huge radiological issue for them.” While some workers may be at risk for potential harm either from radiation or, more likely, from structural or mechanical problems, other citizens should remain mostly safe, he said.

While his friends convinced him to take it easy that day, it was that mindset that prompted Gay’s friend and housemate Nico Sayavedra to launch a “Helping Bryno Beat Lymphoma” Facebook group the following week to raise money for Gay and to provide a place for people to provide emotional support for him through comments. People have donated about $2,000 since Sayavedra started the Web page on Feb. 8. It has 841 members. Some donations have come from Gay’s friends while others have come from people who didn’t know him personally but were touched by his story.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 HE WILL START JUNE 1. By ANDREW PANTAZI Alligator Contributing Writer As it prepares for a curriculum overhaul for new students, UF’s journalism department will be led by a new chairman. Wayne Wanta, who was an associate professor at UF from 1999 to 2001, was named the new head of the department Monday. Wanta, who is leaving his position as the Welch-Bridgewater chairman of sports journalism at Oklahoma State University, was praised by interim chairman David Ostroff as one of the top journalism academics in America. Ostroff added that his familiarity with UF was a big selling point. “Because he’s been on faculty before, he knows the culture a little bit,” Ostroff said. William McKeen, who led the department since 1998, left UF last year for a position at Boston University. Since then, Ostroff, who is also the telecommunications department chairman, has led the journalism department. John Wright, the dean of the College of Journalism and Communications, said another of Wanta’s selling points was his experience with sports journalism and international journalism. Wright said he expects Wanta to work with the University Athletic Association to expand the journalism school’s involvement with GatorZone. com and GatorVision, the athletic association’s news programs, and further the sports journalism options at UF. Wanta has eight years of newspaper experience, which includes jobs at the Austin American-Statesman, The Albuquerque Journal and The Wisconsin State Journal, as well as 27 years of teaching experience. Wanta’s one shortcoming, Wright said, is his lack of administrative experience. uling and making sure every single student who needs a seat in a class to move forward toward graduation gets one,” he said. Ostroff said he’ll help ease Wanta into his position, most likely starting with assigning graduate assistants to different classes for the fall semester. “Once you step down as an administrator, you try to step back and get out of the next guy’s way,” he said. “It’s his department now.” Wanta was not available for comment by press time.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 grant costs back. Gay is facing 12 chemotherapy treatments, spaced two weeks apart. He has already completed two. Gay is a member of the Southern Scholarship Foundation, a Floridabased group that provides housing Gay lives with Sayavedra and four teen other students in one of them. The organization has been very supportive of Gay, donating 80 percent of the proceeds from their annual “Date and Cake” auction, where they auction a variety of desserts and many students as “dates,” to his medical costs. So far, they have raised $1,100 for Gay. The SSF is also letting Gay continue to live in the organization house through the fall, although normally the SSF requires that all students living in its houses must be full-time students. Gay’s friends visit him often when he is at Shands Hospital. His roommate, James Welch, comes to see him almost every day that he’s there. “I love him like a brother, and I wasn’t going to let him go through this by himself,” Welch said. The fundraising efforts for Gay have caught the attention of many, including Jamal Sowell, special assistant to UF President Bernie Machen and a former UF student body president. Sowell wants to discuss potential fundraising options for Gay, and Sayavedra hopes to meet with him this week. With more than $3,000 raised for Gay in a month-and-a-half, Sayavedra hopes to see that total grow. Those interested in helping Gay can visit the “Helping Bryno Beat Lymphoma” Facebook page or by donating at helpbrynobeatlymphoma.chipin.com. $3,000 has been raised BRYNO, from page 1Japan nuclear plants can’t be rebuilt NUCLEAR, from page 1 “I believe that compared with people in other nations, Japanese people are more prepared for incidents such as an earthquake and a tsunami.”Yasuo Uotate UF Japanese LecturerThe impacted power plants must release some radiation-containing gases to relieve pressures in the core, but Hintenlang doesn’t expect the emissions to cause long-term damage because winds should sweep most of the gases toward the ocean. It will probably take a couple weeks to fully cool the reactors and stop the nuclear reactions, but the plants won’t be usable again. The plants are using saltwater to cool the cores, which can cause corrosion. Paired with the structural damage, these problems put the operations in a tough spot. “Those plants will never operate again unless they rebuild them from the ground up,” he said. Hintenlang said it could take years to fully disassemble the plants. Despite the country’s post-earthquake nuclear problems, he doesn’t expect them to make Japanese people leery of nuclear power use. “I think the Japanese people by and large accept technology and have embraced nuclear power largely because they don’t have other options,” he said. Yasuo Uotate, a UF Japanese lecturer from Japan, said in an e-mail interview that he felt many Japanese people were uncomfortable with having nuclear power plants in the country but understood its necessity. “Most Japanese people have never liked having nuclear power plants,” he said. “However, some towns couldn’t reject having one [for] Japan’s lack of natural resources such as gas and oil also makes nuclear power an important option, Uotate said. He said he expected the nuclear power plant problems to make Japan more cautious about building new ones, and said stricter guidelines for crisis management at plants should be implemented. “I believe that compared with people in other nations, Japanese people are more prepared for incidents such as an earthquake and a tsunami,” he said. “However, I don’t think regular Japanese people are prepared for nuclear power plant problems.”

By JACOB ROMOSERAlligator Contributing Writer Barb Thomas is happy to welcome both friends and strangers into her yellow 1976 Ford Maverick. All of Thomas’s passengers have one thing in common: They have been diagnosed with cancer. Thomas, 57, who fought and won her own helps current cancer patients with their struggle. She is one of 13 active drivers for the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program in Alachua County. The program pairs cancer patients who lack transportation with volunteer drivers, who pick up patients from their homes, drive them to their treatment facilities and take them back home once the treatment is over. “It is an invaluable service for patients who don’t have any other way of getting to their treatment,” Thomas said. The program, however, has hit a roadblock. According to Mel Toran, an area executive director with the American Cancer Society, Road to Recovery’s need for volunteers is desperate. “People are missing their treatments due to lack of transportation,” he said. Toran and Thomas agree that a combination of high gas prices and a struggling economy are to blame for the lack of volunteers. “Sometimes I drive once a month, sometimes four,” Thomas said. “It’s a great way to give back after all the help I received while I was in their shoes.” If you’re interested in volunteering, call 800227-2345.

Monday’s question: Have you ticket?74 TOTAL VOTES12% YES 88% NOOur hearts go out to the nation of Japan, which is coping with a natural disaster combined with a nuclear threat, the likes of which it has never seen. Internet, television or newspaper. As we have seen time and again, such events bring out the best in people. They can also highlight the worst. We wonder if someone can publish a disaster policy guide to show individuals, businesses and media how to respond to such a scenario. We’re no experts on the topic, but with our experience in catastrophe-related distastefulness, we ‘d like to volunteer some suggestions. Suggestion One: Don’t crack jokes at the expense of a devastated area. It’s both unpalatable and unfunny. what we mean. Suggestion Two: Don’t try to harness the human urge to help in order to advertise your products, no matter how tempting and goodhearted it may seem to do so. Microsoft will remember this rule after the scathing response to a Twitter post. The company told people it would donate a dollar for every re-tweet of a post, but the idea came off as a marketing ploy gone completely wrong. It sounded like people had to choose between increasing Bing’s popularity or letting Japan go without their help. The relief effort shouldn’t come with product placement opportunities. Suggestion Three: Give it to us straight. If you don’t know what’s happening, tell us so, but don’t make the situation sound worse than it is. It’s a disaster. People are dying and having their worlds dramatically changed. In the face of such a pervading sense of hopelessness, you shouldn’t make people worry more than they need to. Here, we look to all the news channels that reported on bits of alarming information unearthed only by stripping away the logical explanations of various experts. Other channels were little better. Which brings us to Suggestion Four: Be polite. This one’s also directed to the media. As we watched the painful discussions the news channels had with nuclear experts, it dawned on us how rude the anchors were. They not only badgered guests with questions but they then misconstrued their words or sought out someone willing to advocate a more outlandish theory. It’s no time for joking, cashing in or misrepresenting information, but rather a time to be upfront and thoughtful. We can only hope people who lose their way after such an unfathomable event — ourselves included — could remember to be empathetic in times like these. Remember that even if they’re on the other side of the world, the victims deserve that much.Empathy LessonSuggestions for approaching a disaster Major selection: security over dreamsMy mother recently forwarded me an article that listed some popular college degrees, spotlighting ones the author considered “winners” and “losers.” His rankings are not the focus, but rather the article’s topic. As a college student, I have many friends who graduated with bachelor’s degrees and are putting them to little use at restaurants and retail stores. Understandably, it takes talent, persistence and luck to land any entry-level job, especially in the current market, but should four or more hard years of collegiate work result in jobs also held by high school teens? It seems ridiculous, unfair even, but with some of the degrees For many people this is irrelevant — their ships on collegiate years having sailed — but for those of us still exploring academia, picking majors, minors, internships and the like, it’s imperative we make smart choices now. “If you love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life.” How many times have we heard that one? In theory, it’s brilliant. Find something you love, pursue it with all your heart despite the odds, and you’ll end up employed with a contented smile on too sweet to palate. It would be incredible if I could make money designing jewelry or playing professional basketball, but things don’t happen that way for everyone. A very small percentage of people are lucky enough to have the resources and opportunities coincide to allow them to work and play simultaneously, but for the rest of us it comes down to practicality. Don’t get me wrong, I admire those who follow their istry or accounting? Nobody loves those classes or spends hours dreaming about equity mortgages and market portfolios, but those are the practical skills that will allow graduates an easier job search and stable pay opportunities. More and more of the passion-chasers are college, but four years of hard work and thousands of dollars aren’t between what you love and what is practical, and college is the time to get serious about the equilibrium. I’m not trying to knock any degrees here, as they all take talent and dedication to achieve. I just want to point out the inopportune situation some graduates face when they choose a degree out of pure passion and no practicality. As it’ll say at kind of sucks. I’ll put it on the record I am in this area almost solely for post-collegiate rewards in a job search, and hopeselling out? Maybe, but after years of thinking on it, I’ve decided it’s the smartest choice for me. As for that article, the author urges the dreamers to keep up their zeal for their studies, preparing themselves for a posis a place to blossom and learn about the world and your self, but let’s not forget why we’re here. Eventually, we’ll want homes and cars and we’ll have kids who need clothes and food. While it may seem distant now, it’s closer than we think. Make your collegiate years count. Be social, make connections, learn life skills and, most importantly, leave UF armed with a degree you are proud of and will take you as far as you’d like to go. Twenty years from now, it probably won’t really matter what you majored in, but right now, it does. Laura Ellermeyerletters@alligator.org

They are looking for redemption. Of Florida’s eight losses last year, only two were within four 11 heartbreaker at the hands of Georgetown. The other? A 12-11 overtime upset by Colgate. After avenging their loss to the at home on March 9, the Gators (61) have turned their attention to “We want to beat them more than Georgetown, I feel like, because we lost to them in overtime,” sophomore Emily Dohony said Saturday. “We want to kill them like the score of this game,” she added, referring to UF’s 19-4 win over Temple. Colgate will come to Dizney a UF team that has outscored opponents by an average of nine nine straight home games this season. Florida split its only two road games so far, with the next coming April 2 at Penn State. “Last year, it was a home game we weren’t really a good traveling team,” Dohony said. “Our heads weren’t in the game. This year, we have our fans, and we have our The Raiders haven’t been keeping attackers away from goal, with 201 shots reaching their goalies this season. This shortcoming plays perfectly into Florida’s attack, as UF has outshot its opponent in each game this season. “Our defense is getting the ball in our attackers’ hands, and our Amanda O’Leary said. “It’s a com bination of both, and they’re starting to really come together and blend as a team, which is exactly what you’re wanting to see heading into your conference play.” O’Leary expects Colgate to use an offensive scheme that draws defenders out then dumps the ball within the 8-meter arc, but she said the Raiders might reveal some sur prises like Georgetown did with its “Each and every team we play is going to throw something different at us,” O’Leary said. “Georgetown threw a very different defense at us ... so we’re going to have to play a much better defense as a team ver sus individual defense.”Gators out to avenge 2010 loss to Raiders at home Lacrosse

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 Saj Guevara / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Kevin O’Sullivan, left, said UF must simply play better to halt its current four-game losing streak against FSU. By JESSE SIMONTONAlligator Staff Writerjsimonton@alligator.orgWhile the top-ranked Gators won’t admit they have a nemesis, their adversary from Tallahassee has certainly stepped into that role. The Florida-Florida State baseball rivalry has been particularly one-sided lately, as the Seminoles ings — including four straight — and nine of the last 13. Before No. 1 UF takes on No. 4 FSU tonight at 7 in McKethan Stadium, coach Kevin O’Sullivan will address the team as usual. But he go. “If you guys have any suggestions, I don’t know what to say,” O’Sullivan said. “We’ve got to play better. “Florida State has played better than we have. It’s as simple as that.” Earlier this month, the Seminoles (15-1) captured a 5-3 victory in their annual showdown with the Gators (14-2) in Tampa. In the loss, a familiar issue plagued Florida: its starting pitcher couldn’t slow down the FSU lineup. UF’s pitching staff has sported a 5.60 ERA, but the starters have been putting the team in deep holes. In the March 1 showdown, senior right-hander Tommy Toledo went just 2.1 innings, alners. Highlighted by Anthony DeSclafani’s wretched start on March 2, 2010, when he didn’t escape the combined to toss just nine innings feats. Tonight, in the second of four meetings this year between the in(1-0, 4.66 ERA) will toe the rubber for his second start of the season. The junior came on in relief two weeks ago against Florida State, throwing 2.2 innings and allowing two runs. “We’ve just got to play better. There’s nothing more to it,” O’Sullivan said. “We’ve got to play a whole lot better than we have in the past.” Although the Seminoles ended the Gators’ season in last year’s ColTucker said their recent struggles aren’t in the players’ heads. “I wouldn’t say it’s a mental hump,” Tucker said. “We need to put things together. We need to perform the way we know we can. We’ve got a really good team, and I think timely hitting, good pitching and good defense is going to win you ball games.”Gators look to snap skid vs. ‘NolesFSU has won four straight over UF Baseball

Sports TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011 ALLIGATOR www.alligatorSports.org THE TWO COACHED TOGETHER WITH THE MIAMI DOLPHINS IN 2006.By ADAM BERRYAlligator Staff Writeraberry@alligator.orgWill Muschamp has made it per fectly clear he doesn’t want a coaching staff full of yes men at Florida. But his defensive coordinator has all the makings of a reliable right-hand man, and that suits the new Gators When Florida’s spring football practice opens Wednesday, Dan Quinn will be installing his scheme and calling plays for the Gators, but he will work closely with the defensive-minded Muschamp throughout the process. “Dan and I worked together before, so that’s kind of why we get along so well — we have a philosophical belief in how you play,” said Muschamp, who ran Auburn’s defense for two years and Texas’ for three before taking the job at Florida. “I plan on him calling it right now as far as what we’re doing, but I’m going to be involved. In my role, you play to your strengths, and my strength is on defense, special teams and recruiting.” Quinn joins UF after 10 years in the NFL, having worked with Muschamp on the Miami Dolphins staff in 2005 and most recently as the defensive line coach for the Seattle Seahawks. The two bonded instantly due to their similar coaching philosophies, and they remained in contact after going their separate ways. Quinn said he would often cross paths with Muschamp at Auburn and Texas to evaluate potential NFL prospects, spending his down time visiting his former co-worker. So, when Muschamp said there was an opening for a defensive coordinator on his staff, Quinn’s response was never in question. “[Muschamp] had all the right stuff about him as a coach, and when it came to having the opportunity to work at a place like this, it really was easy for me,” Quinn said. “I had a great experience in the NFL, loved it and made some terrific connections with players, coaches just a new challenge for me and something I was looking forward to doing. “I don’t know if anything can prepare you for being a coordinator in the SEC without having done it, but my experience the last 10 years has prepared me to play in big games and be involved in that way.” Quinn said he hopes to turn the Gators into a “4-3 team with 3-4 principles,” and his philosophy falls right between rushing four linemen and all-out blitzing. He encourages versatility in all his players, something already evident in Ronald Powell’s switch to the “Buck” position (a hybrid defensive end who can fall back into zone or defend receivers), Josh Shaw’s move from cornerback to safety and Leon Orr’s transition from the offensive line to defensive end. But one consistent aspect of Quinn’s defense is its pressure on the quarterback — an emphasis he and Muschamp plan to bring to Florida this season. It may not always show up as sacks in the box score, but he and Muschamp share a focus on “affecting” the quarterback on every play. “Will and I see football a lot in the same way,” Quinn said. “That cownnection is what brought me here.” ONLINE alligatorSports Podcast BRACKET CHALLENGE For updates from the Gators’ pro day in The Swamp today, follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/ alligatorSports.

ESPN’s Doug Gottlieb called them the tournament’s “most overseeded” team, while Charles Barkley said Florida was overrated. Even some of UF’s players were surprised by the decision. “The two seed kind of shocked me,” senior forward Chandler Parsons said. “But I think we deserve it. I’m happy with it.” With the exception of Sunday’s 70-54 loss to Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference son as hot as any team in the nation. But early season losses to Jacksonville and wise-strong resume, and many assumed they would keep Florida off the No. 2 line. “I had a feeling we were going to be a three seed, honestly,” Parsons said. Although projected as a three by most prognosticators, coach Billy Donovan said Florida’s No. 7 nonconference strength of schedule and 11 wins over RPI top-50 teams were enough to push the Gators over the top. SEC Commissioner and former member of the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee Mike Slive advised Donoslate would be critical, and the committee is less concerned with how a team performs in the conference portion of its season. “I wasn’t necessarily surprised by it,” Donovan said. “We probably got rewarded for the whole body of work of what happened during the course of the season.” Although many Florida players felt it Gators taking No. 2 NCAA Tournament seed in strideSEE HOOPS, PAGE 15Parsons Fo otball

While the higher seed is meant to give UF an easier path to the Sweet 16, it also puts a target on the Gators’ backs. “We’re going to get every team’s best shot because we are the two seed and a lot of people have stuff to say about that,” sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. “What it’s going to come down to is who wants to win the most.” Parsons said what experts think about their cused on its next opponent. Boynton took a different approach, saying his team can be inspired by the criticism. “We’re going to use the most motivation we can,” Boynton said. “They don’t feel like we’re a two, so we’ll show them.” PARSONS, DONOVAN WIN AP AWARDS: After winning the SEC Player and Coach of the Year Awards from the conference’s coaches last week, Chandler Parsons and Billy Donovan completed a season sweep by garnering the same accolades from The Associated Press. Guard Erving Walker was also honored, earning a spot on the AP’s All-SEC second team. “I’m honored to be noticed for what I do Parsons said. “I couldn’t do it without my teammates and my coaches, so it’s just a huge blessing for me.” HOOPS, from page 14By MATT WATTSAlligator Writer ish its season exactly where it began: in the National Invitation Tournament.

But eight losses in 10 games late in the SEC schedule, as well as losses to Brown and Hampton, likely did in the Gators’ chances.

It omits players missing or limited in the spring due to injuries or other athletic commitments, coach Will Muschamp said Monday. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis explained the chart’s details, particularly the F-21, F-12 and F-11 positions. The first number refers to how many players line up in the backfield, while the second shows the number of tight ends. For example: When Deonte Thompson is the F-11, UF will line up one running back, one tight end and three receivers. “Instead of giving you some bogus depth chart that doesnt’ really tell you anything and just lines up with two wide receivers, we figured we would give you ... what we are thinking,” Weis said.
