CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Students arent even two days into the new school year, but that doesnt mean they arent speculating about classes being canceled soon. Hurricane Irene is projected to pass through Florida on Friday, according to the National Hurricane Centers website. Gainesville was included in the mean canceled classes. Even if the eye of the storm does not pass through Gainesville, the outer part of the storm could still hit the area, said geography professor and hurricane expert Corene Matyas. We could still see some damage and still have some problems, she said. Matyas said the National Hurricane Center has predicted that Gainesville has a 30to 40-percent chance of seeing tropical-storm-force winds and about a 10-percent chance of seeing hurricane-force winds. However, it is still too early to say how the Gainesville area will be affected. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said representatives from various UF departments are watching Hurricane Irenes progress. UF President Bernie Machen makes the ultimate decision of whether to close campus, Orlando said. The school does not yet know whether it will need to close. It can be very much an hour-by-hour process, Orlando said. Students can check the UF website for updates. Hurricane could mean canceled class MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Staff Writer steal laptops this semester due to the University Police Department. UPD is giving UF faculty, staff and students the chance to download free software that will help locate computers if they are lost or stolen. The No. 1 crime on campus is theft, with bicycles topping the list of stolen items, followed closely by electronic devices like laptops, said Capt. Jeff Holcomb, commander of UPDs community services division. Students can access the software, called FrontDoorSoftware Laptop Loss and Recovery, on the UPD website. UPD used budget funds to buy a site lidownload the program to their computers for free. People can put stickers on their computers showing the devices are protected by the software to deter thieves. The software could also help people who with the owners more easily. If someone found a laptop without knowing who to give it to, when somebody boots up the system it will have all of the contact information for the owner, Holcomb said. Some of the programs safety measures include a stolen computer message that will show on the laptop screen when it is used, as well as a Google maps tracking feature. Hazel Canete, an 18-year-old biology major, said the software sounded like a good way to help students who fall prey to theft.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterUF ranked third on SmartMoney magazines list of 50 universities that get their alumni the highest salaries in relation to what they spent on tuition. The list included public, private and Ivy League schools. The public universities, with the Geor gia Institute of Technology and the University of Texas at Austin in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots respectively. Three Ivy League schools Harvard, Princeton and Dartmouth are all listed the list, Carnegie Mellon Univer sity. In the study, alumni of each university were broken down into two groups: recent grads and mid-career grads. Researchers then divided the median annual salary of each group by tuition costs at the time of attendance. The end solution, or payback ratio, determined how the schools ranked. The higher the payback ratio, the better the return on tuition investment. UFs payback ratio was 191, with recent grads making $45,000 and mid-career grads makGeorgia Tech topped the list with a payback ratio of 221. The study used out-of-state tuition rates, which puts in-state students, who comprise 97 per cent of undergraduates at UF, at a higher advantage in terms of investment. But even out-of-state Gators wallets are safe. UFs four-year tuition costs were the lowest on behind the next lowest, the University of Georgia. However, the article said the study was less than perfect beaid and scholarships. The survey also didnt consid er any amenities unique to a university that might be invaluable to a students experience. Last year, The Wall Street Jour nal reported that corporate recruiters rated UF among the top 10 universities they hire from. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF is unique also because all of its colleges are in one central location. We are one of the most comprehensive universities in the country, Orlando said. If you want to study it, we have it, and its probably right here on this campus.UF ranks high for return on tuition CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterHomework, book-buying and class-rearranging usually initiate the new school year. But this year at UF, casino games, musical performances, bowling and free food are also part of the mix. The Reitz Union is welcoming back students this week with a free open house. Different activities will be offered through Thursday, and Reitz Union Board Entertainment will offer music, comedy and movie events each night. The events will promote the businesses, programs and services in the student union, said Emily Davis, Reitz Union marketing coordinator. So many people come to the Reitz Union for so many things, but they dont necessarily know all the services, Davis said. UF English freshman Zack Peterson plans to attend the free weekly event GatorNights! on Friday, which will feature about 10 activities and events instead of the usual two or three. Peterson said he is interested in seeing a movie and meeting new people. Anyone can attend the open house. Students are required to bring their Gator 1 Cards for free access to GatorNights!

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterPicket signs and protest lines gearing up for action this week will have to be put away until further notice. Members of local activist groups planning picketing demonstrations in front of Verizon Wireless on 3401 SW Archer Road have canceled the events at the request of the Communications Workers of America labor union. Communications Workers, along with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union, ignited a two-week workers strike against the corporate telephone service provider on Aug. 7, saying concessions were being made to contract items like health cover age, pensions and job security. But the multistate strike, with some 45,000 workers, ended Saturday after Verizon said it would seriously consider contract negotiations. In response, the Communications Worknation postpone scheduled protests. Strikers included workers in states from Massachusetts to Virginia working for Verizons wire lines division, making this the largest strike in the U.S. since 2007. No Verizon employees in Gainesville were on strike, but it was important to local activist groups to be ready to show their support. Gainesville branches of Communications Workers of America, Fight Back Florida, the Alachua County Labor Party and the International Socialist Organization were gearing up for their own demonstrations. The groups had scheduled storefront protests for the next four Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. to show their support for affected workers. Secretary for the Gainesville branch of Industrial Workers of the World Robbie Czopek Thursday. He said even though workers in Gainesville arent affected, its about the solidarity of the working class. Attacks on workers are attacks on the working class, said Czopek, who was planning to attend the picketing. He said he expected some 50 attendees, which he deemed a success. The New York Times reported that Larry Cohen, president of Communications Workers, considers Verizons agreement to negotiate progress but not a victory. Kimberly Hunter, community organizer for the Alachua County Labor Party, said she they want. Protests outside Verizon store postponed amid labor negotiations NEW LAB IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN IN JANUARY.

About 14 people gathered for the wall-breaking ceremony, building. David E. Carlson, executive director of the Center for Media Innovation and Research, Dean John Wright, public relations professors Ann Christiano and Juan-Carlos Molleda, and assistant professor of advertising Troy Elias each donned hardhats and swung sledgehammers into the wall of the old WRUF newsroom, which will be transformed into a high-tech lab. Each person who swung the hammer could smash the wall three or four times. This is a wall-breaking ceremony, not a ground-breaking ceremony, because were not actually going to break the ground, Carlson joked. The new lab will be similar to the CMIR lab located in the basement of Weimer Hall, but while the original had been designed for journalism students, this lab will be geared toward advertising, public relations and production telecommunication students. We are remodeling this space dramatically, Carlson said. This lab is built to experiment with messages that are intendHe said the lab will deliver messages in a variety of ways, including print and television. People in the lab will be able to examine the responses and see which were most effective. The lab will be enclosed in glass walls, containing four small rooms for groups of students to use for classes or competitions. There will also be a kitchen for coffee and food. The space, Carlson said, was designed to be inviting. It will be a less formal type of teaching space, he said. It will look much more like a lounge than it does as a classroom.

Gameday Grumbles Rules for parking, tailgating not needed For about a half-dozen Saturdays every fall, Gainesville becomes a carnival of orange and blue. Make no mistake football season is an engine that drives this place. Bars become crammed to the door, able. And most importantly, its good for business. Alumni, students, their families and residents all know this. Its been this way for years. So why would the city even consider a recent proposal to add more regulations to the parking and tailgating that happens in the neighborhoods just outside of the stadium? There are several single-family homes just north of campus that are inhabited by everything from Cup Noodlesgrubbing students to regular families. On gameday, these streets are lined with cars in every imaginable spot, and many residents often offer their yards up in order to make some easy cash. Often, these yards also have all-day tailgating pargrills. Proponents say these parties and the litter left afterward are the real problem. They wish for people to just park their cars and walk to the game. Some of these concerns are understandable, but we just dont f eel another bureaucratic layer of regulation is the answer. The city Planning Department would establish a special-use permit, which would cost between $50 and $55, and require that all properties wanting to park vehicles for pay obtain this. The fee would be an additional cost to residents, as theyve been required to pay a $52 business tax since 2009. They would even have to submit a parking plan with a map indicating where the cars will be parked. These changes come from the City Plan Board, made up of residents. The City Commission would then have to pass them twice before they could take effect. We understand residents want these neighborhoods to be left intact after game days. We also agree that its important to get a handle on any kind of outrageous behavior. But at some point, residents have to realize that they live in a big-time college football town with a big-time college football program. The tailgating, beer-guzzling, cornholeplaying revelry that comes with every gameday are part of the deal when you move into a house that is minutes away from the stadium. On behalf of the Alligator editorial board, I want to welcome all of the new and returning students to UF. I myself am a new student to UF and will be starting During the last two and a half years, I was a columnist for my campus newspaper. It was one of the best experiences of my college career. I became a better writer, of course, but I also learned so much more about my own ideas. Writing, I have found, is the best way for people to really discover whether they know why they believe the things they say on a daily basis. I look forward to a great semester of opinions, debates and while. The only thing thats missing from the equation is, well, writers. The opinion pages of any newspaper are for those who have strong opinions and can formulate those ideas in a mana city, state, nation or, in our case, a college campus. No, you dont have to be a Pulitzer-Prize-winning columnist or even a journalism major for that matter. But you do have to write well and consistently. sistent columnists per week, but guest columns will always be welcome. If you believe you have the time, the stamina and the tenacity for taking a strong stand on any issue once a week, please, by all means, apply to be a regular columnist. Sorry, we do not pay our columnists, but if you are passionate about the issues, it should not make much of a difference. Plus, having the experience and a few clippings wont hurt you when youre looking for jobs in the future. The opinions pages are a place for the exchange of ideas. It is my goal to make sure that ideas are, in fact, exchanged day to day by offering a diverse set of opinions from our regular columnists. For this semester, I would like to have at least two right-leaning columnists and two left-leaning columnists. Of course, just because we are a campus newspaper does not mean you have to write about campus issues. Campus issues will be given priority, but if you want to talk about what those horrible people are doing on the House Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry, have at it. All I ask is that you take a stand and defend your position. If you actually take the time to write out and defend your opinion, you might actually learn more about the issue or even change your position. I am looking for columns between 500 and 650 words in length. Please note that for guest columnists, submission does not guarantee publication. Anything that is worthy of publication will be edited, and your title that you worked on for three weeks will probably change no offense. The opinions pages are not for personal vendettas and especially not defamatory statements. Please read up on libel before submitting a column. Alright, Justin, Ive got a column. Now what? Send columns to opinions@alligator.org as an attachment. The subject line should be as follows: Alligator Column Topic Your Last Name. If you are thinking of applying for a regular columnist position, please email me at the email address above with the following: Name, political philosophy, a brief statement of why you think you would make a good columnist and at least three links to previous writings. If you do not have a blog, Facebook note or previous published work, I would ask that you submit at least two guest columns in the coming weeks. Have a great semester, and I hope to hear from you soon. Justin Hayes is a graduate student at UF with a major in political communication.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The beginning of the school year brings with it an army of shared treasures. We have college football beginning again, we have our wonderful midtown bars where comes with living in this wonderful swamp weve canoodled in within the heart of Alachua County. And the school year brings new challenges to one of UFs most spectacular achievements in its history. For all the new Gators, over the past 10 months, UF has dedicated itself to its new Meatless Monday initiative in its two on-campus dining halls in order to become a more sustainable, more ethical and healthier university. As you can imagine, even from a school voted the eighthmost vegetarian-friendly by PETA before UF began working on its Meatless Monday pledge, we still have some work to do. And at the largest land-grant university in the Southeast, in the land that invented Sonnys Real Pit Bar-B-Q, we still have some work to do. Gator Dining Services has already done an amazing job, challenging its sixth-largest student population to leave meat off the plate on Mondays to reduce our carbon footprint and become healthier students. This year, UF will unroll a Vegetarian Dining Guide listing every vegetar ian or vegan item at every dining location on campus to make it even easier to make an ethical and environmental impact when sitting down to eat. But even with these monumental improvements in our world of dining, we still have work to do. We must all keep going meatless on Mondays. early fall 2010 semester, I was told wed be laughed at. And perhaps we were. Perhaps were still being laughed at by a few. But weve already made change, everyone. Weve made a change that will positively impact our bodies, our planet, our fellow starving men and women across the globe and the approximate 27 billion animals who are unnecessarily slaughtered every year to be put on our plates. Sustainability, GatorWell, Gators for a Sustainable Campus, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the Humane Society of the United States, the Earth Day Network and Animal Activists of Alachua to help Gator Dining Services make the positive change to have a vegetarian menu just one day a week in only two dining halls on campus. In only four days at the end of last years fall semester, we gathered more than 2,000 petition signatures from concerned UF students and faculty who realized the importance of leaving meat off their plates just one day a week. And when the the leading contributors to global warming, its no surprise so many of you gladly added your name to the list of supporters. Its up to all of us to help Gator Dining Services realize we care about the 27 billion animals that are slaughtered every year in America and the 60 million starving people who could potentially be saved if every American left meat off his or her plate just 10 percent of the time. you support their efforts to become better this year. Join our Meat-Free Monday at the University of Florida Facebook group to stay updated on our work. And most importantly, believe in the change thats happening here.

That thought often does not come in the form of a great spiritual moment of clarity. More often than not, it comes from the realizanow bulging out of places you had no idea exof stairs without gasping for oxygen. So, here you are at a gym nay, the human torture chamber and all you can think is, What happens now? You could either turn around and run back to the couch with your favorite bag of potato chips and a pint of or woman up, as the case may be and tame the dragon. You know what you have to do. You know it wont be easy. But if you choose to take the plunge, forcing your body to endure the suffering needed to reach your goal, you will be rewarded in pounds lost, Thats why youre ultimately in the gym, isnt it? You want to prove to yourself you can do this. You want to prove to the mirror you appropriately. That means gym shorts, a Tshirt and tennis shoes are the style of the day.

Found your center? Fantastic. For the workout, you will want to hit do a form of cardiovascular exercise. Your body needs to be able to work at its least fatigued when lifting weights. This will help you prevent injury and allow you to perform more repetitions with more weight. Generally speaking, weight training allows the body to burn 200-300 calories per hour depending on the weight of the person and the intensity level at which he or she exercises. Weightlifting is also important because it helps promote fat loss. For beginners, running through a full-body weightlifting exercise regimen is a daunting task, so for now, pick four exercises preferably two lower-body and two upper-body and complete three sets of 10 repetitions for each. The last repetition of each set of exercises should be hard and provoke the urge to make a nasty face. If youre able to smile and giggle by your tenth rep, youre doing it wrong. After youve worked up a sweat with the general rule, the longer you are able to per form light to moderate cardiovascular activity, the more fat you will burn.

Joel Corazon, a 25-year-old UF masters student in architecture, said the software sounds like it could be helpful. However, before downloading it, he said he wanted to know whether someone could wipe the software from the computer and restore it to its factory settings, thereby rendering it useless. Holcomb wasnt sure if this could be done but said typical thieves probably wouldnt have enough expertise to remove the program from the computer. Patrick Reakes, chair of Library West, said the library has had problems over the years with students having their computers stousually sees increases in theft because of the increased number of students coming to the library.

UF announced John Handrigan will join the mens golf team as an assistant coach. Mailbag coming Friday: Dont forget to submit any and all questions to us for Fridays new mailbag column. Hit us up on our Twitter: @alligatorSports. We want to hear from you. THE FRESHMAN APPEARED IN ONLY TWO GAMES LAST YEAR. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Wide receiver Quinton Dunbar was helpless last season. As the Gators stagnant, 88thranked passing attack mustered just 184 yards per game and lacked a home run threat at receiver, all Dunbar could do was watch from the sidelines. I feel like I could have helped the team last year, said Dunbar, now a redshirt freshman. to mature. Being by myself forced me to mature. A year later, Dunbar is in line to be one of the teams three starting receivers when the season opens against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3, along with redshirt senior Deonte Thompson and redshirt junior Frankie Hammond. But Dunbars transformation from sideline spectator to Floridas expected vertical threat was not an easy one. Dunbar arrived at Florida out of Miami Booker T. Washington High as the No. 24 wide receiver in the nation and a four-star prospect, according to Rivals.com. The 6-foot-1 receiver impressed during fall camp as a true freshman, but that didnt materialize into playing time, as he made just two appearances before receiving a redshirt. Between his length and his speed he reportedly runs a 4.3 40-yard dash Dunbar had all the physical tools to contribute out of high school. What the receiver lacked, however, were the mental ones. Mentally I wasnt probably ready, Dunbar said. I was immature. Some days Id come out and want to practice, and some days I didnt. Some days Id show up, and some days I wouldnt. Dunbar was used to being just Florida volleyball coach Mary Wise said freshman Taylor Unroe will solidify the back line this season. See Story, Page 19 THE RALLYGators in the Top 25: Rightful placement or abomination?Greg: Apparently the Gators are stepping up to challenge the Miami Heat for the title of most overrated team in Florida. While UFs No. 22 ranking in the AP Preseason Top 25 is nothing close to the hype that surrounded the Big 3, its equally undeserved. This is a team that lost six NFL talents from last years squad seven if you ask Will Hill and enters 2011 with an almost entirely new coaching staff. And that attrition comes from an already mediocre group that went 8-5 and poll. Its ridiculous that they rank ahead of No. 23 Auburn, which won the national championship a year ago, lost fewer players to the league and returns all the integral pieces of their coaching staff. The same goes for teams like Arizona State, Penn State and Utah, all of which had solid 2010 seasons, return most of their top talent and have established stability in their program. Florida is ranked where they are simply because theyre Florida. Put these players in a different uniform and they probably wouldnt sniff the Top 25. Matt: Auburn? Really Greg? Auburn? In 2010, nobody expected the Fightin Cam Newtons to rise through the ranks with a loss-less season, dominating the toughest conference in the nation en route to a national championship. But thats the point. These rankings mean nothing. Squat. Less than squat, actually. Dont believe me? Just ask the New Ball Coach. Answer ing a question recently about UFs No. 22 Matt Wattstwitter: @wattmatts SEE RALLY, P A GE 18 Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca Courtesy of UF CommunicationsRedshirt freshman receiver Quinton Dunbar has emerged as a legitimate More mature, Dunbar ready after redshirt Alligator Staff Writer If the Florida coaching staff accidentally found itself lining up alongside their players, Jaye Howard knows who hed want to pick up. For any Gators defensive lineman, the answer should be obvious. Their position coach, Bryant Young, has lived the life they can only dream of, at least right now. All-America selection at Notre Dame, top-10 pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, Super Bowl winner, four-time Pro Bowler, member of the 1990s AllDecade Team, NFL Comeback Player of the Year Young has more to his name than most players could Including, apparently, ample aggression left over from his 14-year career with the 49ers. We had a stretch where some of the D-tackles were coming off soft, Howard said last Tuesday. Never seen it in my life; the guy just exploded. And Im a senior; Ive been around. But it brought chills to my body just hearing the mans voice echo. Hes so big. Youngs passion has impressed Howards teammates, and his impact could be the difference in Floridas season this year. At media day Aug. 5, coach Will Muschamp pointed to the defensive line as the key for every dominant Southeastern Conference team. The SEC squads who won national championyards allowed per game and 33.4 sacks. Florida, by comparison, surrendered 130.6 yards per game and registered just 21 sacks in 2010.

Well, Sir Boom, as one of our esteemed colleagues so aptly pointed out, the correct phrasing is couldnt care less. As in, I couldnt care less why you think Florida is ranked too high, Greg, because, frankly, they are where they should be. While the Gators receive absolutely no credit for last seasons pathetic showing, they do, fairly or not, have a leg up on most teams because of the uniforms on their backs and the conference they play in. Thats one of the few points we agree on, Greg. But heres the truth. Should Florida win a couple of the toss-up games on its schedule and break the eight-win plateau, then completely feasible. This is the SEC, after all not the Whack-12. Greg: First off, you wont hear me arguing that the Pre-knowledge AP Poll is a good way for sportswriters across the nation to be spending their time. Like Jersey Shore, the preseason poll is a pointless mind-suck based on nothing, that, nonetheless, keeps fans on the edge of their seats. But my point is this: If youre going to do it, you may as well do it right. Im not sure how you did your math with this toss-up thing, Matt, because even if the Gators win their toss-ups against UAB, Tennessee and Kentucky, thats still six or seven wins. And I know theres no way youre calling Geor gia, Auburn or any of these other games a toss-up unless you meant Furman, FAU and Vanderbilt? Those showdowns could be hotly contested. The idea that Floridas conference plays a role in these rankings is equally silly to me. Just because the Gators are about to get their faces smacked in by good teams means they deserve credit for getting their faces smacked in? It all comes back to Jersey Shore. You put that trash on another channel, and its still garbage. Maybe Florida isnt quite garbage, but the point remains: a mediocre team in any conference is still just a mediocre team, not one that should be ranked in the top 25. At least not until they show us something. Matt: While the Gators may not be #twinning (in a football sense) anymore with the departure of Maur kice and Mike Pouncey, there will be some holdover from the days of Urban and BCS crowns. Rivalry wins. Theres no way Muschamp loses to his alma matcounting the Annual Bulldog Massacre as a notch in the W column for the Gators. Also, while Florida may very well be terrible, theres no way they lose to UAB. (The only thing the Blazers have going for them is their proximity to Dreamland BBQ.) FAU and Furman are also as close to a guarantee as you can get since Billy Mays ODd on booger sugar. Counting toss-up victories against Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt (yes, I went there) and Geor gia, means UF only needs a quasi-upset against Auburn to validate its rank. So, Greg, dont be mad at me when the Gators get it in this season. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org, and Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.

BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Mary Wise just wants it to be 2009 again. Floridas volleyball coach longs for the days when she could look out on the court and see Elyse Cusack at defensive specialist. Her depar ture has left a gap the Gators We were not a great backcourt defensive team by any stretch of the imagination a year ago, Wise said. Were not exactly great right now. Were working hard to get better, but that was one of the key areas. We just didnt dig enough balls. Last years major problem at the libero position was the absence of freshman Taylor Unroe. While she may not void left by Cusack, who left UF as the Southeastern Conferences all-time leader in digs, Unroe would have at least been comfortable as a defensive specialist. But she entered the season with a broken bone in her ankle and was forced to redshirt. Obviously it was unexpected, and it was pretty sad But with the help of Mary and teammates, it helped me for this year because I knew what I was coming into and I got to see from the outside in. Her injury pushed thensenior Erin Fleming into the libero role, a position she had never regularly played. The result was a team that was strong up front but questionable along the back line. Florida led the SEC in service aces and blocks but ranked above only a 14-17 Ar kansas squad in digs. Unroes teammates realize the impor tant role she could play on the team in 2011 and said shes someone to look out for this season. Shes somebody we really value this year, junior rightside hitter Tangerine Wiggs said. Shes got a lot of experience passing and playing defense. Shes been doing it ever since she was in kinder garten. The task of sparking a defensive turnaround for the Gators wont belong to Unroe alone as Floridas roster features four liberos. However, only Elissa Hausmann has seen action in a collegiate match. The senior has played in just 17 matches in her UF career, and her only dig came against Albany last September. Floridas other two options at defensive specialist are both true freshmen. So while players might say effort, Wise seems fairly set on who will be cementing the backcourt for the foreseeable future. Now we have Taylor for four years, she said. We will be a better serve-receive team right now today because of how great of a passer Taylor is. We will be a better defensive team as well. nally starting her college career is exciting. At this time last year, the focus was getting better. But now, she can focus on contributing. Describing herself as a blue-collar worker, Unroe, the daughter of a former triathlete and motorcycle racer, is ready for the Gators season opener Friday night against Boston College. game well, real game. In the spring, I got a lot of experience. But playing in the ODome, its going to be nerve-wracking. ... I cant wait. TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Senior forward Tahnai Annis knows how it feels to contribute as a freshman. As part of a mammoth, 16-member freshman class in 2008, Annis started her career on a team-leading four-goal tear that included two weekly awards in son, where half of UFs goals have come off the foot of a newcomer. But unlike 2008s freshman-heavy squad that featured just three seniors, the current competition among No. 9 Floridas 18 returning players and 13 freshmen is just heating up. Im not surprised at all, Annis said. The freshmen all came in during the their weight. Theyve really made a great effort to adapt to what weve asked from them early on. Last seasons leading scorer, Annis year during Sundays matchup against FIU courtesy of an assist from freshman A pair of 2-0 victories into the season, seven of the teams newest members have seen playing time, including a combined four starts from Speese, goalkeeper Taylor Burke, defender Lauren Silver and forward Tessa Andujar. The 5-foot-2 Andujars debut Sunday against the Golden Panthers featured a Havana Solaun also scored two days earlier against Miami. you have a freshman going like that, it makes everyone else want to work just as hard, said junior Erika Tymrak. When you have freshmen starting to lead, it bumps up the intensity and makes the team better as a whole. Before the season opener against the Hurricanes, Tymrak noticed many of the younger players were battling nerves and looked worried. She tried to reassure them in the huddle, explaining that the pregame jitters were normal and a sign they were ready to play. We all have great chemistry and Im really proud that they all stepped up, Tymrak said. Im sure it was a really good feeling for Havana that she scored. With a brutal draw this weekend against No. 11 Texas A&M (1-1-0) and No. 16 UCLA (1-0-0) in Knoxville, Tenn., UF coach Becky Burleigh expects the competition between the upperclassmen and freshmen to continue. We have enough experienced players on this team that can talk to the younger players about what thats like, about not being at home and how thats different, Burleigh said. Part of the reason we did it was to put some challenges on this team early.

inject life up front, and players have raved about working with an All-Pro. But there still remains one lingering question: Can Bryant Young coach? On a staff with a combined 165 years of experience, Young has only been in the business since 2009. Travaris Robinson, Floridas 29-year-old defensive backs coach, is a decade Youngs junior, yet even he has been working ger than Young has. Like every other Florida assistant, Young has not been made available to the media this year, but in an interview with a newspaper in South Bend, Indiana, where he became a graduate assistant at Notre Dame in 2009, Young admitted to getting bit by the coaching bug. At this point in his unproven coaching career, Youngs greatest strength seems to be his passion, something that cant really be measured. What can be measured, however, has been far from impressive. Young was the defensive line coach at San Jose State last season, where the Spartans registered just 24 sacks and allowed 203.2 rushing yards per game second-worst in the nine-team Western Athletic Conference. Of course, Young wasnt given much to work with: San Jose State gave up 259.2 yards on the ground in 2009 and notched just 20 sacks. Although, Young did architect ment for Spartans sophomore defensive end Travis Johnson. For now, though, Young will continue to be the coach with the most unproven track record. But, perhaps more valuable, he has support from his fellow coaches. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coached Young in San Francisco, and Charlie Weis and Frank Verducci worked with him at Notre Dame. And, of course, theres that whole NFL thing. Having the opportunity to play in the league kind of opened some guys eyes because a lot of guys aspire to play on that level, website in April.

Coach Will Muschamp, who said that consistency is the hardest adjustment for a young player, even challenged Dunbar to take it one step further and contribute on special teams which the receiver has fully embraced. That shows the strides hes made from a maturity standpoint, Muschamp said. Hes always thought he worked hard, but until you start doing it every day its a tough deal. Now, with a new, mature approach, Dunbar hopes to do what he couldnt as a freshman: contribute and be the deep threat at wide receiver the Gators need.

CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Students arent even two days into the new school year, but that doesnt mean they arent speculating about classes being canceled soon. Hurricane Irene is projected to pass through Florida on Friday, according to the National Hurricane Centers website. Gainesville was included in the mean canceled classes. Even if the eye of the storm does not pass through Gainesville, the outer part of the storm could still hit the area, said geography professor and hurricane expert Corene Matyas. We could still see some damage and still have some problems, she said. Matyas said the National Hurricane Center has predicted that Gainesville has a 30to 40-percent chance of seeing tropical-storm-force winds and about a 10-percent chance of seeing hurricane-force winds. However, it is still too early to say how the Gainesville area will be affected. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said representatives from various UF departments are watching Hurricane Irenes progress. UF President Bernie Machen makes the ultimate decision of whether to close campus, Orlando said. The school does not yet know whether it will need to close. It can be very much an hour-by-hour process, Orlando said. Students can check the UF website for updates.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterUF ranked third on SmartMoney magazines list of 50 universities that get their alumni the highest salaries in relation to what they spent on tuition. The list included public, private and Ivy League schools. The public universities, with the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Texas at Austin in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots respectively. Three Ivy League schools Harvard, Princeton and Dartmouth are all listed the list, Carnegie Mellon University. In the study, alumni of each university were broken down into two groups: recent grads and mid-career grads. Researchers then divided the median annual salary of each group by tuition costs at the time of attendance. The end solution, or payback ratio, determined how the schools ranked. The higher the payback ratio, the better the return on tuition investment. UFs payback ratio was 191, with recent grads making $45,000 and mid-career grads makGeorgia Tech topped the list with a payback ratio of 221. The study used out-of-state tuition rates, which puts in-state students, who comprise 97 percent of undergraduates at UF, at a higher advantage in terms of investment. But even out-of-state Gators wallets are safe. UFs four-year tuition costs were the lowest on behind the next lowest, the University of Georgia. However, the article said the study was less than perfect beaid and scholarships. The survey also didnt consider any amenities unique to a university that might be invaluable to a students experience. Last year, The Wall Street Journal reported that corporate recruiters rated UF among the top 10 universities they hire from. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF is unique also because all of its colleges are in one central location. We are one of the most comprehensive universities in the country, Orlando said. If you want to study it, we have it, and its probably right here on this campus.UF ranks high for return on tuition CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterHomework, book-buying and class-rearranging usually initiate the new school year.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterPicket signs and protest lines gearing up for action this week will have to be put away until further notice. Members of local activist groups planning picketing demonstrations in front of Verizon Wireless on 3401 SW Archer Road have canceled the events at the request of the Communications Workers of America labor union. Communications Workers, along with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union, ignited a two-week workers strike against the corporate telephone service provider on Aug. 7, saying concessions were being made to contract items like health cover age, pensions and job security. But the multistate strike, with some 45,000 workers, ended Saturday after Verizon said it would seriously consider contract negotiations. In response, the Communications Worknation postpone scheduled protests. Strikers included workers in states from Massachusetts to Virginia working for Verizons wire lines division, making this the largest strike in the U.S. since 2007. No Verizon employees in Gainesville were on strike, but it was important to local activist groups to be ready to show their support. Gainesville branches of Communications Workers of America, Fight Back Florida, the Alachua County Labor Party and the International Socialist Organization were gearing up for their own demonstrations. The groups had scheduled storefront protests for the next four Wednesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. to show their support for affected workers. Secretary for the Gainesville branch of Industrial Workers of the World Robbie Czopek Thursday. He said even though workers in Gainesville arent affected, its about the solidarity of the working class. Attacks on workers are attacks on the working class, said Czopek, who was planning to attend the picketing. He said he expected some 50 attendees, which he deemed a success. The New York Times reported that Larry Cohen, president of Communications Workers, considers Verizons agreement to negotiate progress but not a victory.

Each person who swung the hammer could smash the wall three or four times. This is a wall-breaking ceremony, not a ground-breaking ceremony, because were not actually going to break the ground, Carlson joked. The new lab will be similar to the CMIR lab located in the basement of Weimer Hall, but while the original had been designed for journalism students, this lab will be geared toward advertising, public relations and production telecommunication students.

Gameday Grumbles Rules for parking, tailgating not needed For about a half-dozen Saturdays every fall, Gainesville becomes a carnival of orange and blue. Make no mistake football season is an engine that drives this place. Bars become crammed to the door, able. And most importantly, its good for business. Alumni, students, their families and residents all know this. Its been this way for years. So why would the city even consider a recent proposal to add more regulations to the parking and tailgating that happens in the neighborhoods just outside of the stadium? There are several single-family homes just north of campus that are inhabited by everything from Cup Noodlesgrubbing students to regular families. On gameday, these streets are lined with cars in every imaginable spot, and many residents often offer their yards up in order to make some easy cash. Often, these yards also have all-day tailgating pargrills. Proponents say these parties and the litter left afterward are the real problem. They wish for people to just park their cars and walk to the game. Some of these concerns are understandable, but we just dont f eel another bureaucratic layer of regulation is the answer. The city Planning Department would establish a special-use permit, which would cost between $50 and $55, and require that all properties wanting to park vehicles for pay obtain this. The fee would be an additional cost to residents, as theyve been required to pay a $52 business tax since 2009. They would even have to submit a parking plan with a map indicating where the cars will be parked. These changes come from the City Plan Board, made up of residents. The City Commission would then have to pass them twice before they could take effect. We understand residents want these neighborhoods to be left intact after game days. We also agree that its important to get a handle on any kind of outrageous behavior. But at some point, residents have to realize that they live in a big-time college football town with a big-time college football program. The tailgating, beer-guzzling, cornholeplaying revelry that comes with every gameday are part of the deal when you move into a house that is minutes away from the stadium. On behalf of the Alligator editorial board, I want to welcome all of the new and returning students to UF. I myself am a new student to UF and will be starting During the last two and a half years, I was a columnist for my campus newspaper. It was one of the best experiences of my college career. I became a better writer, of course, but I also learned so much more about my own ideas. Writing, I have found, is the best way for people to really discover whether they know why they believe the things they say on a daily basis. I look forward to a great semester of opinions, debates and while. The only thing thats missing from the equation is, well, writers. The opinion pages of any newspaper are for those who have strong opinions and can formulate those ideas in a mana city, state, nation or, in our case, a college campus. No, you dont have to be a Pulitzer-Prize-winning columnist or even a journalism major for that matter. But you do have to write well and consistently. sistent columnists per week, but guest columns will always be welcome. If you believe you have the time, the stamina and the tenacity for taking a strong stand on any issue once a week, please, by all means, apply to be a regular columnist. Sorry, we do not pay our columnists, but if you are passionate about the issues, it should not make much of a difference. Plus, having the experience and a few clippings wont hurt you when youre looking for jobs in the future. The opinions pages are a place for the exchange of ideas. It is my goal to make sure that ideas are, in fact, exchanged day to day by offering a diverse set of opinions from our regular columnists. For this semester, I would like to have at least two right-leaning columnists and two left-leaning columnists. Of course, just because we are a campus newspaper does not mean you have to write about campus issues. Campus issues will be given priority, but if you want to talk about what those horrible people are doing on the House Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry, have at it. All I ask is that you take a stand and defend your position. If you actually take the time to write out and defend your opinion, you might actually learn more about the issue or even change your position. I am looking for columns between 500 and 650 words in length. Please note that for guest columnists, submission does not guarantee publication. Anything that is worthy of publication will be edited, and your title that you worked on for three weeks will probably change no offense. The opinions pages are not for personal vendettas and especially not defamatory statements. Please read up on libel before submitting a column. Alright, Justin, Ive got a column. Now what? Send columns to opinions@alligator.org as an attachment. The subject line should be as follows: Alligator Column Topic Your Last Name. If you are thinking of applying for a regular columnist position, please email me at the email address above with the following: Name, political philosophy, a brief statement of why you think you would make a good columnist and at least three links to previous writings. If you do not have a blog, Facebook note or previous published work, I would ask that you submit at least two guest columns in the coming weeks.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The beginning of the school year brings with it an army of shared treasures. We have college football beginning again, we have our wonderful midtown bars where comes with living in this wonderful swamp weve canoodled in within the heart of Alachua County. And the school year brings new challenges to one of UFs most spectacular achievements in its history. For all the new Gators, over the past 10 months, UF has dedicated itself to its new Meatless Monday initiative in its two on-campus dining halls in order to become a more sustainable, more ethical and healthier university. As you can imagine, even from a school voted the eighthmost vegetarian-friendly by PETA before UF began working on its Meatless Monday pledge, we still have some work to do. And at the largest land-grant university in the Southeast, in the land that invented Sonnys Real Pit Bar-B-Q, we still have some work to do. Gator Dining Services has already done an amazing job, challenging its sixth-largest student population to leave meat off the plate on Mondays to reduce our carbon footprint and become healthier students. This year, UF will unroll a Vegetarian Dining Guide listing every vegetar ian or vegan item at every dining location on campus to make it even easier to make an ethical and environmental impact when sitting down to eat. But even with these monumental improvements in our world of dining, we still have work to do. We must all keep going meatless on Mondays. early fall 2010 semester, I was told wed be laughed at. And perhaps we were. Perhaps were still being laughed at by a few. But weve already made change, everyone. Weve made a change that will positively impact our bodies, our planet, our fellow starving men and women across the globe and the approximate 27 billion animals who are unnecessarily slaughtered every year to be put on our plates. Sustainability, GatorWell, Gators for a Sustainable Campus, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the Humane Society of the United States, the Earth Day Network and Animal Activists of Alachua to help Gator Dining Services make the positive change to have a vegetarian menu just one day a week in only two dining halls on campus. In only four days at the end of last years fall semester, we gathered more than 2,000 petition signatures from concerned UF students and faculty who realized the importance of leaving meat off their plates just one day a week. And when the the leading contributors to global warming, its no surprise so many of you gladly added your name to the list of supporters. Its up to all of us to help Gator Dining Services realize we care about the 27 billion animals that are slaughtered every year in America and the 60 million starving people who could potentially be saved if every American left meat off his or her plate just 10 percent of the time. you support their efforts to become better this year.

This will help you prevent injury and allow you to perform more repetitions with more weight. Generally speaking, weight training allows the body to burn 200-300 calories per hour depending on the weight of the person and the intensity level at which he or she exercises. Weightlifting is also important because it helps promote fat loss. For beginners, running through a full-body weightlifting exercise regimen is a daunting task, so for now, pick four exercises preferably two lower-body and two upper-body and complete three sets of 10 repetitions for each. The last repetition of each set of exercises should be hard and provoke the urge to make a nasty face. If youre able to smile and giggle by your tenth rep, youre doing it wrong.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORGSoccer player receives award; mens golf names new assistant: Florida center back Kat Williamson was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week Monday. ... UF announced John Handrigan will join the mens golf team as an assistant coach. Mailbag coming Friday: Dont forget to submit any and all questions to us for Fridays new mailbag column. Hit us up on our Twitter: @alligatorSports. We want to hear from you. THE FRESHMAN APPEARED IN ONLY TWO GAMES LAST YEAR. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Wide receiver Quinton Dunbar was helpless last season. As the Gators stagnant, 88thranked passing attack mustered just 184 yards per game and lacked a home run threat at receiver, all Dunbar could do was watch from the sidelines. I feel like I could have helped the team last year, said Dunbar, now a redshirt freshman. to mature. Being by myself forced me to mature. A year later, Dunbar is in line to be one of the teams three starting receivers when the season opens against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3, along with redshirt senior Deonte Thompson and redshirt junior Frankie Hammond. But Dunbars transformation from sideline spectator to Floridas expected vertical threat was not an easy one. Dunbar arrived at Florida out of Miami Booker T. Washington High as the No. 24 wide receiver in the nation and a four-star prospect, according to Rivals.com. The 6-foot-1 receiver impressed during fall camp as a true freshman, but that didnt materialize into playing time, as he made just two appearances before receiving a redshirt. Between his length and his speed he reportedly runs a 4.3 40-yard dash Dunbar had all the physical tools to contribute out of high school. What the receiver lacked, however, were the mental ones. Mentally I wasnt probably ready, Dunbar said. I was immature. Some days Id come out and want to practice, and some days I didnt. Some days Id show up, and some days I wouldnt. Dunbar was used to being just Florida volleyball coach Mary Wise said freshman Taylor Unroe will solidify the back line this season. See Story, Page 19 THE RALLYGators in the Top 25: Rightful placement or abomination?Greg: Apparently the Gators are stepping up to challenge the Miami Heat for the title of most overrated team in Florida. While UFs No. 22 ranking in the AP Preseason Top 25 is nothing close to the hype that surrounded the Big 3, its equally undeserved. This is a team that lost six NFL talents from last years squad seven if you ask Will Hill and enters 2011 with an almost entirely new coaching staff. And that attrition comes from an already mediocre group that went 8-5 and poll. Its ridiculous that they rank ahead of No. 23 Auburn, which won the national championship a year ago, lost fewer players to the league and returns all the integral pieces of their coaching staff. The same goes for teams like Arizona State, Penn State and Utah, all of which had solid 2010 seasons, return most of their top talent and have established stability in their program. Florida is ranked where they are simply because theyre Florida. Put these players in a different uniform and they probably wouldnt sniff the Top 25. Matt: Auburn? Really Greg? Auburn? In 2010, nobody expected the Fightin Cam Newtons to rise through the ranks with a loss-less season, dominating the toughest conference in the nation en route to a national championship. But thats the point. These rankings mean nothing. Squat. Less than squat, actually. Dont believe me? Just ask the New Ball Coach. Answer ing a question recently about UFs No. 22 Matt Wattstwitter: @wattmatts SeeEE RALLY, Pa A GeE 18 GGreg Lucatwitter: @gregluca Courtesy of UF CommunicationsRedshirt freshman receiver Quinton Dunbar has emerged as a legitimate More mature, Dunbar ready after redshirt Alligator Staff Writer If the Florida coaching staff accidentally found itself lining up alongside their players, Jaye Howard knows who hed want to pick up. For any Gators defensive lineman, the answer should be obvious. Their position coach, Bryant Young, has lived the life they can only dream of, at least right now. All-America selection at Notre Dame, top-10 pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, Super Bowl winner, four-time Pro Bowler, member of the 1990s AllDecade Team, NFL Comeback Player of the Year Young has more to his name than most players could Including, apparently, ample aggression left over from his 14-year career with the 49ers. We had a stretch where some of the D-tackles were coming off soft, Howard said last Tuesday. Never seen it in my life; the guy just exploded. And Im a senior; Ive been around. But it brought chills to my body just hearing the mans voice echo. Hes so big. Youngs passion has impressed Howards teammates, and his impact could be the difference in Floridas season this year. At media day Aug. 5, coach Will Muschamp pointed to the defensive line as the key for every dominant Southeastern Conference team. The SEC squads who won national championyards allowed per game and 33.4 sacks. Florida, by comparison, surrendered 130.6 yards per game and registered just 21 sacks in 2010. On paper, Young seems like the perfect man to Young brings NFL experience, tenacity to lineTYLER JETTYoung SeeEE COACH, Pa A GeE 20 SeeEE DuUNBarAR, Pa A GeE 20 Mentally I wasnt probably ready.

Well, Sir Boom, as one of our esteemed colleagues so aptly pointed out, the correct phrasing is couldnt care less. As in, I couldnt care less why you think Florida is ranked too high, Greg, because, frankly, they are where they should be. While the Gators receive absolutely no credit for last seasons pathetic showing, they do, fairly or not, have a leg up on most teams because of the uniforms on their backs and the conference they play in. Thats one of the few points we agree on, Greg. But heres the truth. Should Florida win a couple of the toss-up games on its schedule and break the eight-win plateau, then completely feasible. This is the SEC, after all not the Whack-12. Greg: First off, you wont hear me arguing that the Pre-knowledge AP Poll is a good way for sportswriters across the nation to be spending their time. Like Jersey Shore, the preseason poll is a pointless mind-suck based on nothing, that, nonetheless, keeps fans on the edge of their seats. But my point is this: If youre going to do it, you may as well do it right. Im not sure how you did your math with this toss-up thing, Matt, because even if the Gators win their toss-ups against UAB, Tennessee and Kentucky, thats still six or seven wins. And I know theres no way youre calling Geor gia, Auburn or any of these other games a toss-up unless you meant Furman, FAU and Vanderbilt? Those showdowns could be hotly contested. The idea that Floridas conference plays a role in these rankings is equally silly to me. Just because the Gators are about to get their faces smacked in by good teams means they deserve credit for getting their faces smacked in? It all comes back to Jersey Shore. You put that trash on another channel, and its still garbage. Maybe Florida isnt quite garbage, but the point remains: a mediocre team in any conference is still just a mediocre team, not one that should be ranked in the top 25. At least not until they show us something. Matt: While the Gators may not be #twinning (in a football sense) anymore with the departure of Maur kice and Mike Pouncey, there will be some holdover from the days of Urban and BCS crowns. Rivalry wins. Theres no way Muschamp loses to his alma matcounting the Annual Bulldog Massacre as a notch in the W column for the Gators. Also, while Florida may very well be terrible, theres no way they lose to UAB. (The only thing the Blazers have going for them is their proximity to Dreamland BBQ.) FAU and Furman are also as close to a guarantee as you can get since Billy Mays ODd on booger sugar. Counting toss-up victories against Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt (yes, I went there) and Geor gia, means UF only needs a quasi-upset against Auburn to validate its rank. So, Greg, dont be mad at me when the Gators get it in this season. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org, and Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.

BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Mary Wise just wants it to be 2009 again. Floridas volleyball coach longs for the days when she could look out on the court and see Elyse Cusack at defensive specialist. Her depar ture has left a gap the Gators We were not a great backcourt defensive team by any stretch of the imagination a year ago, Wise said. Were not exactly great right now. Were working hard to get better, but that was one of the key areas. We just didnt dig enough balls. Last years major problem at the libero position was the absence of freshman Taylor Unroe. While she may not void left by Cusack, who left UF as the Southeastern Conferences all-time leader in digs, Unroe would have at least been comfortable as a defensive specialist. But she entered the season with a broken bone in her ankle and was forced to redshirt. Obviously it was unexpected, and it was pretty sad But with the help of Mary and teammates, it helped me for this year because I knew what I was coming into and I got to see from the outside in. Her injury pushed thensenior Erin Fleming into the libero role, a position she had never regularly played. The result was a team that was strong up front but questionable along the back line. Florida led the SEC in service aces and blocks but ranked above only a 14-17 Ar kansas squad in digs. Unroes teammates realize the impor tant role she could play on the team in 2011 and said shes someone to look out for this season. Shes somebody we really value this year, junior rightside hitter Tangerine Wiggs said. Shes got a lot of experience passing and playing defense. Shes been doing it ever since she was in kinder garten. The task of sparking a defensive turnaround for the Gators wont belong to Unroe alone as Floridas roster features four liberos. However, only Elissa Hausmann has seen action in a collegiate match. The senior has played in just 17 matches in her UF career, and her only dig came against Albany last September. Floridas other two options at defensive specialist are both true freshmen. So while players might say effort, Wise seems fairly set on who will be cementing the backcourt for the foreseeable future. Now we have Taylor for four years, she said. We will be a better serve-receive team right now today because of how great of a passer Taylor is. We will be a better defensive team as well. nally starting her college career is exciting. At this time last year, the focus was getting better. But now, she can focus on contributing. Describing herself as a blue-collar worker, Unroe, the daughter of a former triathlete and motorcycle racer, is ready for the Gators season opener Friday night against Boston College. game well, real game. In the spring, I got a lot of experience. But playing in the ODome, its going to be nerve-wracking. ... I cant wait. TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Senior forward Tahnai Annis knows how it feels to contribute as a freshman. As part of a mammoth, 16-member freshman class in 2008, Annis started her career on a team-leading four-goal tear that included two weekly awards in son, where half of UFs goals have come off the foot of a newcomer. But unlike 2008s freshman-heavy squad that featured just three seniors, the current competition among No. 9 Floridas 18 returning players and 13 freshmen is just heating up. Im not surprised at all, Annis said. The freshmen all came in during the their weight. Theyve really made a great effort to adapt to what weve asked from them early on. Last seasons leading scorer, Annis year during Sundays matchup against FIU courtesy of an assist from freshman A pair of 2-0 victories into the season, seven of the teams newest members have seen playing time, including a combined four starts from Speese, goalkeeper Taylor Burke, defender Lauren Silver and forward Tessa Andujar. The 5-foot-2 Andujars debut Sunday against the Golden Panthers featured a Havana Solaun also scored two days earlier against Miami. you have a freshman going like that, it makes everyone else want to work just as hard, said junior Erika Tymrak. When you have freshmen starting to lead, it bumps up the intensity and makes the team better as a whole. Before the season opener against the Hurricanes, Tymrak noticed many of the younger players were battling nerves and looked worried. She tried to reassure them in the huddle, explaining that the pregame jitters were normal and a sign they were ready to play. We all have great chemistry and Im really proud that they all stepped up, Tymrak said. Im sure it was a really good feeling for Havana that she scored. With a brutal draw this weekend against No. 11 Texas A&M (1-1-0) and No. 16 UCLA (1-0-0) in Knoxville, Tenn., UF coach Becky Burleigh expects the competition between the upperclassmen and freshmen to continue. We have enough experienced players on this team that can talk to the younger players about what thats like, about not being at home and how thats different, Burleigh said. Part of the reason we did it was to put some challenges on this team early.

inject life up front, and players have raved about working with an All-Pro. But there still remains one lingering question: Can Bryant Young coach? On a staff with a combined 165 years of experience, Young has only been in the business since 2009. Travaris Robinson, Floridas 29-year-old defensive backs coach, is a decade Youngs junior, yet even he has been working ger than Young has. Like every other Florida assistant, Young has not been made available to the media this year, but in an interview with a newspaper in South Bend, Indiana, where he became a graduate assistant at Notre Dame in 2009, Young admitted to getting bit by the coaching bug. At this point in his unproven coaching career, Youngs greatest strength seems to be his passion, something that cant really be measured. What can be measured, however, has been far from impressive. Young was the defensive line coach at San Jose State last season, where the Spartans registered just 24 sacks and allowed 203.2 rushing yards per game second-worst in the nine-team Western Athletic Conference. Of course, Young wasnt given much to work with: San Jose State gave up 259.2 yards on the ground in 2009 and notched just 20 sacks. Although, Young did architect ment for Spartans sophomore defensive end Travis Johnson. For now, though, Young will continue to be the coach with the most unproven track record. But, perhaps more valuable, he has support from his fellow coaches. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coached Young in San Francisco, and Charlie Weis and Frank Verducci worked with him at Notre Dame. And, of course, theres that whole NFL thing. Having the opportunity to play in the league kind of opened some guys eyes because a lot of guys aspire to play on that level, website in April. They may take to you a little bit.

Young reunited with Quinn, Weis COACH, from page 17 young he never had to sit out during games because he was so talented, and he thought things would come just as easy in college. But he was wrong, and teammates made him realize he needed to change his mindset and his work ethic. It wasnt until midway through UFs 8-5 season that something clicked. The gifted wideout had a coming-of-age moment when he was confronted, not by a teammate, but by then-Gators coach Meyer saw Dunbar wasnt acting like his usual self. The normally joyful receiver was quiet and down. Meyer told him that the skys the limit if he changes his work ethic something the former coach made sure to preach to the young receiver every day. Since that conversation, Dunbar has turned things around. He was singled out as the most outstanding player in spring practice and has parlayed that into, by all reports, a stellar fall camp. arrived in Gainesville. Coach Will Muschamp, who said that consistency is the hardest adjustment for a young player, even challenged Dunbar to take it one step further and contribute on special teams which the receiver has fully embraced. That shows the strides hes made from a maturity standpoint, Muschamp said. Hes always thought he worked hard, but until you start doing it every day its a tough deal. Now, with a new, mature approach, Dunbar hopes to do what he couldnt as a freshman: contribute and be the deep threat at wide receiver the Gators need.
