FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Diane, left, and Nina Mom McNeal received peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from the Catholic Gators on Thursday. Students hand out PB&Js to homeless MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterHomeless people in Gainesville got a free meal Thursday that has long been a grade-school lunch tradition: good old peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The PB&J came courtesy of the Catholic Gators club at UF. Students made more than 1,000 sandwiches Wednesday night for the organizations PB and Jesus event to give to the homeless the following day. More than 200 sandwiches were given on Thursday morning to St. Francis House, a homeless shelter and soup kitchen in Gainesville. Eight students ventured out with the Catholic Gators campus minister, Debby Cherwak, at noon on Thursday to hand out as many of the remaining sandwiches as they could to homeless people around town. They visited Bo Diddley Community Plaza and a tent city in Gainesville, distributing sandwiches to everyone they met. Were all in love with Jesus. They always say, When I was hungry, you gave me food, said Amanda Edwards, a 21-year-old UF senior who went on the outing. Were serving him by serving others. The students split up to cover as much of the tent city area as they could, handing out sandwiches to the people they met and leaving some food behind for people to distribute to others later in the day. One makeshift house made of wooden boards nailed together and covered with tarps and towels was empty when a few of the students walked over, calling for anyone inside to come out and get a free PB&J. The students left a few sandwiches there in case people returned to the site that night. Kathryn Stolarz, 22, graduated from UF in Spring 2011 and has been a member of Catholic Gators since her freshman year. She had never visited a tent city before. Feeding the homeless was the issue at the center of a controversy in Gainesville that raged for more than a year as people argued about whether the city should continue to enforce a meal limit that restricted soup kitchens and shelters from feeding more than 130 people per day. The Gainesville City Commission eliminated this restriction Aug. 18, replacing it with a time limit that allows organizations to provide food for no more than three continuous hours per day. Stolarz said she didnt agree with the idea of a meal limit on feeding the homeless. I dont think anyone should ever be limited to the amount that they should give, she said. It doesnt make sense to me to stop people from helping other people. After the students left the tent city, they took the remaining sandwiches to the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank in Gainesville, Cherwak said. They donated 144 pounds of PB&J to the organization. The food bank then sent the food to the Reichert House Youth Academy, a nonthat supports at-risk boys in middle and high school. It doesnt make sense to me to stop people from helping other people.Kathryn Stolarz UF graduateGroup made 1,000 sandwiches

THE INCREASE IS MEANT TO ENCOURAGE SUSTAINABILITY. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterIn the name of sustainability, UF students with motorcycles and scooters will have to pay as much for annual parking decals as students with automobiles this year. It now costs $144 per year and $72 per semester to buy a decal for a motorcycle or a scooter, compared to $96 per year and $48 per semester for the 2010 school year. It was the third price increase to motorcycle and scooter decals over the past three years, said Scott Fox, director at UF Transportation and Parking Services. The department will know in September whether fewer scooter and motor cycle decals were sold this school year compared with last school year. Such decals were previously cheaper than automobile ones as part of an effort to encourage students to use motorcycles and scooters, which are more sustainable than cars because they have better gas mileage, Fox said. A few years ago, UF surveyed students who owned motorcycles and scooters. About 80 percent of students sur veyed said if motorcycle and scooter parking werent so convenient and cheap, they would ride the bus, Fox said. Because students were driving more on their scooters and motor cycles than they would if they had a car, more gas was being burned than necessary, Fox said. It really doesnt make sense to offer students a discount to conduct behavior that is very questionably antisustainable, Fox said. After the survey, the department set three price increases in place to gradually push the price of scooter and motorcycle decals up to that of automobiles. Our intent is not to push students into one mode of transportation or another, but to no longer give students a discount to get off the bus and ride a scooter, Fox said 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2011 Gina Chitko / AlligatorScooters are parked in front of Gator Corner Dining Center during the lunchtime rush Wednesday afternoon. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff Writer 2010 football season, UF students were still clicking the refresh button Wednesday night to buy tickets for away games this year. Tickets went on sale for the Auburn University, University of South Carolina, Louisiana State University and University of Kentucky away games at 6 p.m., said Mark Gajda, assistant athletic director of ticket operations at UF. All tickets except those for the Kentucky game were sold out by 10 p.m. Its very common to see that type of situation last night, he said. Gajda said ticket sales hadnt dropped since the previous year, when student tickets quickly sold out for away games against the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida State University Seminoles. Rachel Wolf, a psychology senior, bought a ticket for the Auburn game this season. Im excited for this season, Wolf said. Im hopeful that well have a turnaround, and if not, it will just be fun to go and support them. Students are given 10 percent of the ticket allotment UF receives for away games, and the different universities determine ticket prices.Away game tickets sell out as quickly as previous years Motorcycle, scooter decal prices riseUF FOOTBALL Im excited for this season.

SEVENTY-FIVE STUDENTS JOINED THIS YEAR. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterUF is showing the rest of the country that Gators care. This year, UF was the 5th highest contributor of recent college graduates to Teach for America, with 75 students joining the corps. TFA is a national program that sends recent college graduates to teach in low-performing schools around the United States. Angie Brice, regional director of recruitment for Florida, said she believes UF is a top contributor because its students care strongly about social justice and making high-quality education accessible to everyone. She said the number of students interested in TFA was fairly low when she came to UF as a recruitment manager in 2009. During her time at UF, Brice said she and other recruiters placed an emphasis on working with students and faculty to raise awareness on campus about Americas achievement gap. Two years ago, UF wasnt even in the top 10 list of contributors, Brice said. Now, it ranks with such perennial contributors as University of California, Berkeley, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. To go from a place of a lack of awareness and to see that UF is in [the top tier], so many amazing Gators are truly committed to this cause, Brice said. UF is also a top producer of diverse members, which is impressive because TFA recruits at about 300 colleges and universities, she said. Former Student Body Vice President Larnell Vickers worked in fore joining the corps. He said he got involved because of his concern that low-income students arent learning as well as their more privileged counterparts, which he considers a crisis. Vickers is now teaching ninth -grade reading at Booker T. Washington High School in Miami. I truly wanted to give back and make a difference, he said. I per sonally know that I want to continue and have a career in education, so I ence and be on the front lines. Brice said TFA received about 47,000 applications nationally last year and has an 11 percent acceptance rate. New recruits receive training in classroom management before being sent to one of 43 regions across the country. Because of the demanding nature of the positions, Brice said people are not likely to apply because of economic factors such as not being Jessica McCarthy, a family, youth and community sciences senior, wants to join TFA when she graduates and participated in a similar program this summer. McCarthy traveled to Pennsylvania to be part of Summerbridge Pittsburgh, which is part of a nationwide program called Breakthrough Collaborative. From June to August, Summerbridge volunteers taught lowperforming middle school students science, math, English and Spanish with the goal that when students returned to school in the fall, they would perform better and get into good high schools. She said she enjoyed working with the students because they needed some focused help. I was on the fence before about wanting to be a teacher, she said, and working with those kids made me decide that I really wanted to. FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 Courtesy to the Alligator / Teach for America MINA RADMANAlligator Writer Students who frequently attend UF sporting events will now be rewarded with free prizes. Beginning with Fridays volleyball game against Boston College, students can join the Rowdy Reptiles, a new student rewards program sponsored by the UF Athletic Association and State Farm insurance company. All undergraduate, graduate and professional school students are eligible to join the free program. At each eligible sporting event, there will be a booth where students can scan their Gator 1 Cards and receive points. Once a student accumulates a certain level of points, he or she will receive a prize, such as a Gators hat, a T-shirt or a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the Gators athletic facilities. Each sporting event counts for a different number of points. However, students cannot receive points for attending football games because tracking that attenFitzgerald, marketing director for Gator Athletics.

Tea partys image, reputation a hindranceIts no secret that the tea party we all hear so much about isnt such a grand party, after all. Many popular news outlets make the tea party seem like a stubborn group of Americans who try to derail the supposed bipartisan support that exists in Washington, D.C., and to some extent, theyre right. On the other hand, few realize the actual core values the tea party stands for. There is more to this party than simply a bunch of people who are mad as hell. The tea party started as a grassroots campaign to restore common sense and small government in America. A simple glance at their mission statement outlines the ited government and free markets. Not surprisingly, most can identify with these values. Thats how parties make themselves attractive to voters: by reaching them on levels with which most anyone can agree. While the tea party attempts to align itself with the Boston Tea Party we all learned about in social studies, it seems to miss the point. Somewhere along the way, many of the tea partiers began to view the Boston Tea Party purely as an act of stubbornness as opposed to an act of dissent aimed at a greater good. the party are less than desirable. Often considered the kan Gov. Sarah Palin has seen the shortcomings of her career far outweigh her successes. cal policies, she also notoriously butchered the English language and established herself as a vapid Republican having a blatant lack of knowledge on popular issues. Dont forget that her decision to be a reality TV star did not earn her any political clout, either. Along with Palin, 2012 Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is also creating public image problems for the tea party. Like her counterpart, she too has been credited with numerous verbal slip-ups early strong passion, but her delivery has made her an instant turnoff to many. She constantly credits herself with things she has not done and often lacks real solutions to the problems we face today. With the 2012 Republican presidential race starting to pick up the pace, the tea party poses an imminent threat to the Republican Partys election hopes. President Barack Obama won his 2008 election through an upsurge in young voters. Unfortunately, the tea party does not appeal to this demographic. To make things worse, many people from all age groups cant relate and generally disapprove of the party. By rousing so much displeasure, the tea party is essentially aiding the re-election chances for Obama. The best thing tea partiers could do is back away from being the center of attention. The tea party is only serving to inadvertently aid the other side and worsen the chances for change in Washington, D.C. The tea party has a great underlying initiative to restore the values of the United States of America. The cold hard truth is that government has grown too large, While the tea party should be commended for their values, it is time they take a step back from the spotlight. The time has come to part ways with their standreal change to happen. Joshua Segall writes for the Arizona Daily Wildcat at the University of Arizona.UWireWelcome back, Gators.

Free pizza!Safety Matt Elam, just a sophomore, is being counted on to lead the Gators defense this year. See Story, Page 16 Alligator File PhotoFlorida running back Jeff Demps missed all of spring practice and summer workouts, but he said coaches have been helping him get up to speed in offensive coordinator Charlie Weis pro-style offense. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer After missing all of the spring and summer practice seasons, its natural that senior running back Jeff Demps could be a few steps behind. Although he admits learning the new offensive scheme has dent in his knowledge. Some days its easier than some other days, Demps said. Its tough for me to miss the whole spring and then come back and try to learn it all in a couple weeks. But my position coach, coach Weis and the assistants have been helping me out. So Ive been picking it up pretty good so far. Also aiding Demps through senior running back Chris Rainey, who plays a similar style as Demps and has had ample time to learn the ins and outs of the offense. Demps is also getting a fresh start from a health standpoint after being limited by a foot injury throughout last season. The nagging ailment frustrated Demps by restricting his ability to run and cut, but hes been entirely healthy since camp started. I actually think I got a lot stronger and change direction a lot better, Demps said. It should be a good year for me. Brantley dealing with back pain: Although back soreness has recently limited senior John Brantley, Will Muschamp has no concerns about Floridas No. 1 quarterback. I just dont have a whole lot to be concerned about at this point, Muschamp said. Certainly if we were sitting here Wednesday or Thursday of game week, Id be concerned. I feel good where we are. Brantley participated in full practice Tuesday, but was pulled during the teams Wednesday scrimmage. Muschamp said Brantleys removal was part of a predeter mined plan, and that the injury is nothing more than minor soreness. Demps said Brantley has been full go through most of camp and hasnt missed too many repetitions in practice. Demps has no concerns about the injury hindering Brantleys ability to pick up the new offense, Demps making up for lost time, fully healthy MURPHY IS UFS GO-TO PLAYER. JOE MORGANAlligator Writer Kelly Murphy is a rock for Florida. Murphy is the Gators leading returner ing up for coach Mary Wises squad as it opens its season at 7:30 tonight against Boston College in the OConnell Center. Shes a pretty cerebral type of player, Wise said. Shes not the most emotional player by any stretch, but what she is is a go-to player. In terms of leadership, Murphy could be considered the type of player who sets an example for her teammates with her play on the court. As her kill numbers indicate, Mur phy is an offensive force, but she also showed her versatility by recording the third-most digs (239) for UF last season. Kelly has the skills, whether its behind the service line, whether its setting or attacking, she has Gators leaning on Murphy for offense as season opens ALLIGATOR STAFF@Will_Muschamp: What type of defense will we be running? Well, coach, I thought youd be able to tell us that. Since, you know, youre the head coach of the football team and all. But thats just silly. Seriously though, the Gators have the per sonnel up front to employ both the 3-4 and the 4-3 successfully. But our gut feeling is Muschamp and Quinn will run the 4-3 as the base defense, with an emphasis on a two-gap, runstopping system. The strength of the defense is Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley, Omar Hunter and Jaye Howard. The big guys inside are capable of holding the point of attack, allowing Powell and the linebackers to make plays in space. Outside of Jelani Jenkins and Jon Bostic, there isnt enough talent at linebacker to run the 3-4 predominantly. But it will be an effective scheme in certain situations. @PhilipGaryTalks: If Brantley struggles should Gators get Jeff in game? Ive seen this with Chris Leak...ended with a championship. For those who dont know, Jeff is freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel, who came to Florida in January as the top-rated passer in the class of 2011. When the two-quarterback system worked in 2006, it was because it helped the offense for a change-of-pace quarterback to come Defense, steaks and hostagesTHE MAILBAGSeeEE VOLLEY, pagePAGE 15 SeeEE MAILBAG, pagePAGE 15 SeeEE NotebooOTEBOOK, pagePAGE 16 UF Fo otball Murphy

the skills, Wise said. She wants the ball, she wants to make the plays at crunch time, and she can deliver. Thats what you want in a senior, an experienced player. However, being a leader is more than putting together a good effort on the court each match. Murphy now shoulders the responsibility with her fellow seniors of keeping the Gators focused on competing for the Southeastern Conference and national titles. Add the increased national attention for her efforts during the 2010 campaign to the equation, and Murphy is dealing with quite a spotlight. more pressure, Murphy said. Being a senior, theres a lot more responsibility because youre the oldest on the team, so everybodys have that pressure to perform all the time when the teams doing well, when the teams not doing well. Murphys choice in leadership style can go many ways, but her cool demeanor will likely rule out. Fortunately for the underclassmen, Murphy said this years seniors took notes from leaders in the past, who showed that each can take an individual approach in setting an example. Ive always been (levelheaded), Murphy said. Ill get pressure, but when other people around you are panicking a little bit its just that Ive always been a setter and the setters always been that person to have control over the team. Youre going to touch the ball every play, so you cant freak out or else everyone around is going to start freaking out. in. Thats doubtful if Florida really is running a pro-style system. Lets put it this way: We think if John Brantley does get pulled for Driskel, its because the Gators season hopes are dashed and the coaches are looking to 2012. @PhilipGaryTalks: Will the Gator defense be better than last year? Highly recruited youth with one year under their belt... to say we appreciate the energy you bring to asking questions. We can tell its very important to you, and you have fun doing it. But to answer your question, improving on last years ninth-ranked defense will be quite the challenge. The key stat to watch is turnovers. Florida was just +2 in turnover margin last season and Muschamp has made it clear that forcing giveaways is a major emphasis this season. Hunter said Thursday the defense wants three per game. @fcardillo: How does Jeff Demps like his steak? When hes not making a quick stop at Steak n Shake (everything Jeff Demps does, he does fast), he takes some extra time to make sure his meal is well done. After listening to Muschamp shout Blood!

Since a down year last year? We think interest has not only waned since Tebows departure, but that its part of an ongoing issue that goes as far back as the end of the Steve Spurrier era. Of course there was fan energy around the Tebow-led teams, but that can be credited to a bandwagon effect as much as anything. Any college town in America would have supported an offense led by No. 15 and Percy Harvin. But for people who grew up around The Swamp in the 1990s, the electricity and interest among the student body is not even provides is dwindling.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Diane, left, and Nina Mom McNeal received peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from the Catholic Gators on Thursday. Students hand out PB&Js to homeless MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterHomeless people in Gainesville got a free meal Thursday that has long been a grade-school lunch tradition: good old peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The PB&J came courtesy of the Catholic Gators club at UF. Students made more than 1,000 sandwiches Wednesday night for the organizations PB and Jesus event to give to the homeless the following day. More than 200 sandwiches were given on Thursday morning to St. Francis House, a homeless shelter and soup kitchen in Gainesville. Eight students ventured out with the Catholic Gators campus minister, Debby Cherwak, at noon on Thursday to hand out as many of the remaining sandwiches as they could to homeless people around town. They visited Bo Diddley Community Plaza and a tent city in Gainesville, distributing sandwiches to everyone they met. Were all in love with Jesus. They always say, When I was hungry, you gave me food, said Amanda Edwards, a 21-year-old UF senior who went on the outing. Were serving him by serving others. The students split up to cover as much of the tent city area as they could, handing out sandwiches to the people they met and leaving some food behind for people to distribute to others later in the day. One makeshift house made of wooden boards nailed together and covered with tarps and towels was empty when a few of the students walked over, calling for anyone inside to come out and get a free PB&J. The students left a few sandwiches there in case people returned to the site that night. Kathryn Stolarz, 22, graduated from UF in Spring 2011 and has been a member of Catholic Gators since her freshman year. She had never visited a tent city before. Feeding the homeless was the issue at the center of a controversy in Gainesville that raged for more than a year as people argued about whether the city should continue to enforce a meal limit that restricted soup kitchens and shelters from feeding more than 130 people per day. The Gainesville City Commission eliminated this restriction Aug. 18, replacing it with a time limit that allows organizations to provide food for no more than three continuous hours per day. Stolarz said she didnt agree with the idea of a meal limit on feeding the homeless. I dont think anyone should ever be limited to the amount that they should give, she said. It doesnt make sense to me to stop people from helping other people. After the students left the tent city, they took the remaining sandwiches to the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank in Gainesville, Cherwak said. They donated 144 pounds of PB&J to the organization. The food bank then sent the food to the Reichert House Youth Academy, a nonthat supports at-risk boys in middle and high school.

THE INCREASE IS MEANT TO ENCOURAGE SUSTAINABILITY. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterIn the name of sustainability, UF students with motorcycles and scooters will have to pay as much for annual parking decals as students with automobiles this year. It now costs $144 per year and $72 per semester to buy a decal for a motorcycle or a scooter, compared to $96 per year and $48 per semester for the 2010 school year. It was the third price increase to motorcycle and scooter decals over the past three years, said Scott Fox, director at UF Transportation and Parking Services. The department will know in September whether fewer scooter and motor cycle decals were sold this school year compared with last school year. Such decals were previously cheaper than automobile ones as part of an effort to encourage students to use motorcycles and scooters, which are more sustainable than cars because they have better gas mileage, Fox said. A few years ago, UF surveyed students who owned motorcycles and scooters. About 80 percent of students sur veyed said if motorcycle and scooter parking werent so convenient and cheap, they would ride the bus, Fox said. Because students were driving more on their scooters and motor cycles than they would if they had a car, more gas was being burned than necessary, Fox said. It really doesnt make sense to offer students a discount to conduct behavior that is very questionably antisustainable, Fox said. After the survey, the department set three price increases in place to gradually push the price of scooter and motorcycle decals up to that of automobiles. Our intent is not to push students into one mode of transportation or another, but to no longer give students a discount to get off the bus and ride a scooter, Fox said 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2011 Gina Chitko / AlligatorScooters are parked in front of Gator Corner Dining Center during the lunchtime rush Wednesday afternoon. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff Writer 2010 football season, UF students were still clicking the refresh button Wednesday night to buy tickets for away games this year. Tickets went on sale for the Auburn University, University of South Carolina, Louisiana State University and University of Kentucky away games at 6 p.m., said Mark Gajda, assistant athletic director of ticket operations at UF. All tickets except those for the Kentucky game were sold out by 10 p.m. Its very common to see that type of situation last night, he said. Gajda said ticket sales hadnt dropped since the previous year, when student tickets quickly sold out for away games against the University of Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida State University Seminoles. Rachel Wolf, a psychology senior, bought a ticket for the Auburn game this season. Im excited for this season, Wolf said.

SEVENTY-FIVE STUDENTS JOINED THIS YEAR. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterUF is showing the rest of the country that Gators care. This year, UF was the 5th highest contributor of recent college graduates to Teach for America, with 75 students joining the corps. TFA is a national program that sends recent college graduates to teach in low-performing schools around the United States. Angie Brice, regional director of recruitment for Florida, said she believes UF is a top contributor because its students care strongly about social justice and making high-quality education accessible to everyone. She said the number of students interested in TFA was fairly low when she came to UF as a recruitment manager in 2009. During her time at UF, Brice said she and other recruiters placed an emphasis on working with students and faculty to raise awareness on campus about Americas achievement gap. Two years ago, UF wasnt even in the top 10 list of contributors, Brice said. Now, it ranks with such perennial contributors as University of California, Berkeley, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. To go from a place of a lack of awareness and to see that UF is in [the top tier], so many amazing Gators are truly committed to this cause, Brice said. UF is also a top producer of diverse members, which is impressive because TFA recruits at about 300 colleges and universities, she said. Former Student Body Vice President Larnell Vickers worked in fore joining the corps. He said he got involved because of his concern that low-income students arent learning as well as their more privileged counterparts, which he considers a crisis. Vickers is now teaching ninth -grade reading at Booker T. Washington High School in Miami. I truly wanted to give back and make a difference, he said. I per sonally know that I want to continue and have a career in education, so I ence and be on the front lines. Brice said TFA received about 47,000 applications nationally last year and has an 11 percent acceptance rate. New recruits receive training in classroom management before being sent to one of 43 regions across the country. Because of the demanding nature of the positions, Brice said people are not likely to apply because of economic factors such as not being Jessica McCarthy, a family, youth and community sciences senior, wants to join TFA when she graduates and participated in a similar program this summer. McCarthy traveled to Pennsylvania to be part of Summerbridge Pittsburgh, which is part of a nationwide program called Breakthrough Collaborative. From June to August, Summerbridge volunteers taught lowperforming middle school students science, math, English and Spanish with the goal that when students returned to school in the fall, they would perform better and get into good high schools. She said she enjoyed working with the students because they needed some focused help. I was on the fence before about wanting to be a teacher, she said, and working with those kids made me decide that I really wanted to.

Tea partys image, reputation a hindranceIts no secret that the tea party we all hear so much about isnt such a grand party, after all. Many popular news outlets make the tea party seem like a stubborn group of Americans who try to derail the supposed bipartisan support that exists in Washington, D.C., and to some extent, theyre right. On the other hand, few realize the actual core values the tea party stands for. There is more to this party than simply a bunch of people who are mad as hell. The tea party started as a grassroots campaign to restore common sense and small government in America. A simple glance at their mission statement outlines the ited government and free markets. Not surprisingly, most can identify with these values. Thats how parties make themselves attractive to voters: by reaching them on levels with which most anyone can agree. While the tea party attempts to align itself with the Boston Tea Party we all learned about in social studies, it seems to miss the point. Somewhere along the way, many of the tea partiers began to view the Boston Tea Party purely as an act of stubbornness as opposed to an act of dissent aimed at a greater good. the party are less than desirable. Often considered the kan Gov. Sarah Palin has seen the shortcomings of her career far outweigh her successes. cal policies, she also notoriously butchered the English language and established herself as a vapid Republican having a blatant lack of knowledge on popular issues. Dont forget that her decision to be a reality TV star did not earn her any political clout, either. Along with Palin, 2012 Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is also creating public image problems for the tea party. Like her counterpart, she too has been credited with numerous verbal slip-ups early strong passion, but her delivery has made her an instant turnoff to many. She constantly credits herself with things she has not done and often lacks real solutions to the problems we face today. With the 2012 Republican presidential race starting to pick up the pace, the tea party poses an imminent threat to the Republican Partys election hopes. President Barack Obama won his 2008 election through an upsurge in young voters. Unfortunately, the tea party does not appeal to this demographic. To make things worse, many people from all age groups cant relate and generally disapprove of the party. By rousing so much displeasure, the tea party is essentially aiding the re-election chances for Obama. The best thing tea partiers could do is back away from being the center of attention. The tea party is only serving to inadvertently aid the other side and worsen the chances for change in Washington, D.C. The tea party has a great underlying initiative to restore the values of the United States of America. The cold hard truth is that government has grown too large, While the tea party should be commended for their values, it is time they take a step back from the spotlight. The time has come to part ways with their standreal change to happen. Joshua Segall writes for the Arizona Daily Wildcat at the University of Arizona.UWireWelcome back, Gators.

Free pizza!Safety Matt Elam, just a sophomore, is being counted on to lead the Gators defense this year. See Story, Page 16 Alligator File PhotoFlorida running back Jeff Demps missed all of spring practice and summer workouts, but he said coaches have been helping him get up to speed in offensive coordinator Charlie Weis pro-style offense. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer After missing all of the spring and summer practice seasons, its natural that senior running back Jeff Demps could be a few steps behind. Although he admits learning the new offensive scheme has dent in his knowledge. Some days its easier than some other days, Demps said. Its tough for me to miss the whole spring and then come back and try to learn it all in a couple weeks. But my position coach, coach Weis and the assistants have been helping me out. So Ive been picking it up pretty good so far. Also aiding Demps through senior running back Chris Rainey, who plays a similar style as Demps and has had ample time to learn the ins and outs of the offense. Demps is also getting a fresh start from a health standpoint after being limited by a foot injury throughout last season. The nagging ailment frustrated Demps by restricting his ability to run and cut, but hes been entirely healthy since camp started. I actually think I got a lot stronger and change direction a lot better, Demps said. It should be a good year for me. Brantley dealing with back pain: Although back soreness has recently limited senior John Brantley, Will Muschamp has no concerns about Floridas No. 1 quarterback. I just dont have a whole lot to be concerned about at this point, Muschamp said. Certainly if we were sitting here Wednesday or Thursday of game week, Id be concerned. I feel good where we are. Brantley participated in full practice Tuesday, but was pulled during the teams Wednesday scrimmage. Muschamp said Brantleys removal was part of a predeter mined plan, and that the injury is nothing more than minor soreness. Demps said Brantley has been full go through most of camp and hasnt missed too many repetitions in practice. Demps has no concerns about the injury hindering Brantleys ability to pick up the new offense, Demps making up for lost time, fully healthy MURPHY IS UFS GO-TO PLAYER. JOE MORGANAlligator Writer Kelly Murphy is a rock for Florida. Murphy is the Gators leading returner ing up for coach Mary Wises squad as it opens its season at 7:30 tonight against Boston College in the OConnell Center. Shes a pretty cerebral type of player, Wise said. Shes not the most emotional player by any stretch, but what she is is a go-to player. In terms of leadership, Murphy could be considered the type of player who sets an example for her teammates with her play on the court. As her kill numbers indicate, Mur phy is an offensive force, but she also showed her versatility by recording the third-most digs (239) for UF last season. Kelly has the skills, whether its behind the service line, whether its setting or attacking, she has Gators leaning on Murphy for offense as season opens ALLIGATOR STAFF@Will_Muschamp: What type of defense will we be running? Well, coach, I thought youd be able to tell us that. Since, you know, youre the head coach of the football team and all. But thats just silly. Seriously though, the Gators have the per sonnel up front to employ both the 3-4 and the 4-3 successfully. But our gut feeling is Muschamp and Quinn will run the 4-3 as the base defense, with an emphasis on a two-gap, runstopping system. The strength of the defense is Ronald Powell, Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley, Omar Hunter and Jaye Howard. The big guys inside are capable of holding the point of attack, allowing Powell and the linebackers to make plays in space. Outside of Jelani Jenkins and Jon Bostic, there isnt enough talent at linebacker to run the 3-4 predominantly. But it will be an effective scheme in certain situations. @PhilipGaryTalks: If Brantley struggles should Gators get Jeff in game? Ive seen this with Chris Leak...ended with a championship. For those who dont know, Jeff is freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel, who came to Florida in January as the top-rated passer in the class of 2011. When the two-quarterback system worked in 2006, it was because it helped the offense for a change-of-pace quarterback to come Defense, steaks and hostagesTHE MAILBAGSEE VOLLEY, PAGE 15 SEE MAILBAG, PAGE 15 SEE NOTEBOOK, PAGE 16 UF Fo otball Murphy

the skills, Wise said. She wants the ball, she wants to make the plays at crunch time, and she can deliver. Thats what you want in a senior, an experienced player. However, being a leader is more than putting together a good effort on the court each match. Murphy now shoulders the responsibility with her fellow seniors of keeping the Gators focused on competing for the Southeastern Conference and national titles. Add the increased national attention for her efforts during the 2010 campaign to the equation, and Murphy is dealing with quite a spotlight. more pressure, Murphy said. Being a senior, theres a lot more responsibility because youre the oldest on the team, so everybodys have that pressure to perform all the time when the teams doing well, when the teams not doing well. Murphys choice in leadership style can go many ways, but her cool demeanor will likely rule out. Fortunately for the underclassmen, Murphy said this years seniors took notes from leaders in the past, who showed that each can take an individual approach in setting an example. Ive always been (levelheaded), Murphy said. Ill get pressure, but when other people around you are panicking a little bit its just that Ive always been a setter and the setters always been that person to have control over the team. Youre going to touch the ball every play, so you cant freak out or else everyone around is going to start freaking out. in. Thats doubtful if Florida really is running a pro-style system. Lets put it this way: We think if John Brantley does get pulled for Driskel, its because the Gators season hopes are dashed and the coaches are looking to 2012. @PhilipGaryTalks: Will the Gator defense be better than last year? Highly recruited youth with one year under their belt... to say we appreciate the energy you bring to asking questions. We can tell its very important to you, and you have fun doing it. But to answer your question, improving on last years ninth-ranked defense will be quite the challenge. The key stat to watch is turnovers. Florida was just +2 in turnover margin last season and Muschamp has made it clear that forcing giveaways is a major emphasis this season. Hunter said Thursday the defense wants three per game. @fcardillo: How does Jeff Demps like his steak? When hes not making a quick stop at Steak n Shake (everything Jeff Demps does, he does fast), he takes some extra time to make sure his meal is well done. After listening to Muschamp shout Blood! Blood! Blood! at the defense all week in practice, Demps is just trying to get away. Since he presumably turned down a lucrative track contract to stay at UF, we can assume hes since theres always a chance Muschamp splits him out wide. Demps was in Eugene, Ore., when he ran his famous 9.96 100-meter dash, so well splash a little duck sauce on there and call it a day. @ejdelaino: How much has student interest in football fallen since the end of the Tebow era? Since a down year last year? We think interest has not only waned since Tebows departure, but that its part of an ongoing issue that goes as far back as the end of the Steve Spurrier era. Of course there was fan energy around the Tebow-led teams, but that can be credited to a bandwagon effect as much as anything. Any college town in America would have supported an offense led by No. 15 and Percy Harvin. But for people who grew up around The Swamp in the 1990s, the electricity and interest among the student body is not even provides is dwindling. Mediocre teams dont help, but its tough to tell if even another national title contender could get the student section back to what it once was. @AlligatorArmy: Which Gator is most likely to avert a hostage crisis? After a very serious and lengthy deliberation among the entire alligatorSports staff, we have come to a conclusion on what may be the most important question ever asked in the history of questions. Quinton Dunbar. You may be asking yourself why, but the answer is simple. He makes us happy when he talks. Isnt that enough? Dont you think those poor souls stuck in the American Embassy in Iran for more than a year wouldnt have enjoyed his infectious smile and carefree demeanor? We certainly do.
