Now, the Gators have been ranked for how they give back. In a list released by Washington Monthly, a bimonthly political magazine, UF ranked 28th overall in terms of its contribution to society. The top three spots went to three Universities of California San Diego, Los Angeles and Berkeley. Florida State University ranked 106. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said this based on their contributions to the public good. important to remember that universities To determine the rankings, Washington Monthly looked at three categories: social mobility, research and service. Social mobility refers to the ability of a university to recruit and graduate lowincome students. The magazine looked at the number of Pell Grants awarded and the graduation rates of low-income students. In social mobility alone, UF was No. University ranks 28th in country for contributing to society EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer of the state, and with such power comes responsibility. In this case, that responsibility is to share the expertise and knowledge of its faculty with the state of Florida something the Board of Governors is seeking to regulate. Strategic Planning Committee last Friday, changes in regulation wording were approved and set to go before the full Board in September. This proposed regulation addresses universities that are seeking to expand their academic programs outside of their geographic locations. The controversy comes when these expansions are made into ritory. Under the new wording, universities seeking such expansion must gain approval by the Board of Governors Chancellor Frank Brogan and chairwoman Ava Parker.

Construction has begun on 13th Street between 16th Street and Archer Road in preparation for an overhaul of the overpass. Construction crews are working to lay utility lines and install new streetlights repairs that caused lane closures earlier in the week. The overpass, once part of the Depot Avenue Rail Trail, is now a pedestrian and bicycle path. Its $1.2 million renovation, part of a larger effort to modify the entire rail trail and create a Depot Avenue Park, is being funded by the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency. According to plans on the CRA website, the redesigned bridge will have a roof, lined with solar panels, in the shape of a double helix a nod to the nearby Shands hospitals.

An example of such a program brought up in an earlier meeting of the Board was that of UFs pharmacy program at St. Petersburg College. The nearby University of South Florida also has a pharmacy school, and Brogan questioned if having two similar programs so close together was a waste of state funding. All existing programs were grandfathered in, including UFs pharmacy school and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, which has outposts in all of Floridas 67 counties.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 MINA RADMANAlligator WriterIf few parking spaces and pedestrian-filled streets werent enough, the Alternative Transportation Fair Wednesday proved theres another reason not to drive to campus. The fair, hosted at the beginning of each semester by the Office of Sustainability, aims to educate students about the various types of transportation available. Students, staff and faculty are fresh, and maybe theyre settling into a new routine for the year, so it serves to be an educational reminder of what kind of modes and options are on campus and around Gainesville, said Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator for the UF Office of Sustainability. Different organizations set up booths for the fair. The Office of Sustainability, RTS services, UF Transportation and Parking Services, the City of Gainesville, Gainesville Police and GOTCHA Ride each had its own booth. RTS services distributed fliers about various bus routes. UF transportation services spoke to students about the Zipcar program, which is a by-the-hour car rental program available to UF faculty and students. Gainesville Police and the City of Gainesville spoke about bike safety and traveling rules. GOTCHA Ride advertised its free services to students who need a safe ride home from downtown. Its a safe, easy and eco-friendly way to get home, Pennington said. The fair is the kickoff to the Office of Sustainabilitys One Less Car program. Each year, a day in October is chosen to be One Less Car Day. People are urged to try different methods of transportation on that day, which, this year, will be held on Oct. 26. People can register for One Less Car Day at www.sustainable.ufl.edu/onelesscar. The first 800 people to register for the event will receive a free One Less Car T-shirt. Whether you choose to do it one day or try to commute alternatively every day, you can make small choices that have big impacts, Pennington said.Fair provides information on alternative transportation Students, staff and faculty are fresh, and maybe theyre settling into a new routine for the year, so it serves to be an educational reminder of what kind of modes and options are on campus and around Gainesville.Ashley Pennington THE GALLERY OPENED IN 1981 AS A FRAMING SHOP. EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterIf youre a customer of the Thornebrook Gallery, Tricia Fisher probably knows you. The gallery manager knows if your mothers ears arent pierced or if she prefers long, dangling earrings. She knows where your brother goes to school, if your dads knife collection could use an update and whether you prefer abstract paintings or nature scenes. If gallery owner David Arrighi orders a piece Fisher thinks youd like, shell give you a personal phone call. Originally opened in 1981 by two UF alumni as a framing shop, it is this sense of intimacy and friendliness that has kept the Thornebrook Gallery alive for 30 years a milestone which the gallery will celebrate throughout the month of September. The gallery, located in the Thornebrook Village shopping center off ranging from paintings, artisan jewelry and glass sculptures to intricate knives, woodworking and pottery. But it hasnt forgotten its origins in framing. A wall in the back of the store boasts six sliding displays of frames a ser vice the gallery and its employees take pride in. What we attempt to do with the frames is enhance what is already there, Fisher said. The 1980s frame shop slowly grew into an art gallery as the owners began displaying the two-dimensional artwork, such as paintings and photography, of local artists. As the gallery continued to grow, Ar righi expanded his collection to include other three-dimensional mediums such as glass, jewelry and ceramics. The 30th anniversary is a celebration of both local artists and the relationship they have with the Thornebrook Gallery. The gallery will kick off its celebration on Sept. 9 with The Mob a showcase of 37 local artists that will run through Sept. 14. Each artist will bring one piece to display and sell, and the gallery will provide live music and refreshments. The party will continue through the following weekend with the opening of the gallerys Trish Beckham exhibit a local artist who paints realistic Floridian nature scenes and the launch of Gallery Magazine, a publication focusing on local art, culture and food.Thornebrook Gallery marks 30th year open for businessON CAMPUS

It retails for $340 but can be rented for a mere $50. THE WEBSITE HAS BRANCH ES WITH COLLEGE CAMPUSES ACROSS THE NATION, INCLUD ING UF. KIERA WRIGHT-RUIZAvenue Writer Rent the Runway has already become a staple for fashionistas on a budget, and now the company is focusing on college women with a desire for designer. In 2009, Rent the Runway, which allows users to rent designer items from dresses to jewelry to handbags for a fraction of the retail cost, expanded to college campuses nationwide with Rent the Runway On Campus (RTROnCampus.com). The extension is a college-dedicated website that offers beauty advice, fashion tips, girl talk, entertainment news and information on RTRs Runway Rep program. The site also serves as an interactive community for all 500 Runway Reps across college campuses to monitor each campuss progress, allow networking opportunities and serve as an open forum to share ideas. The site is powered by 14 bloggers stemming from college campuses throughout the U.S. Since its development, the program has grown from 50 to 125 schools (including UF) and from 150 to 500 Runway representatives. According to Rent the Runway president and co-founder Jenny Fleiss, college-age women account for 20 per cent of RTRs customers. [Students] are already renting for all of the occasions in their lives, whether it is sorority events, 21st birthdays, tailgating parties, weddings, spring breaks or graduations, Fleiss said. Rent the Runway allows users to search for dresses by occasion and price range, according to Kelsey Munyan, a RTR UF public relations representative. Were obviously college students, Munyan said. We dont have tons of cash lying around, yet we have all these big events going on in our lives right now. Youre getting a $2,000 dress to wear and youre only paying $100 for it, where if you would have bought it for $2,000, you may have only worn it once. UFs branch of RTR On Campus (rtroncampus.com/tag/uf) is kicking off its second year. This year, Munyan said the number of UF RTR representatives has grown to eight and that the program will also be hosting more events. There will also be a RTR fashion show, but a date has not been set yet, she said. [RTR On Campus] is more about bringing together this community of young women for fashion-minded people, Munyan said. Rent the Runway offers items from more than 150 designers, 25,000 dresses and 4,000 accessories. When an order is placed, the customer picks her dress of choice in two for a maximum of four days. Shipping is free when returning the product. Retail prices for dresses range from around $200 to more than $2,000, but RTR users only shell out $50 to $350 for a rental. Beauty products and accessories are also offered. The inspiration for RTR came when its co-founder, Jennifer Hyman, was home for Thanksgiving and had a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear at the moment, Fleiss said. Women everywhere can live the life they dream today by having access to designer brands that otherwise would have been unattainable, she said.

You walk in. Theres an empty space. A cheap table from Walmart is nestled in the corner, and a thin doormat rests under your feet. Yup, you have just entered your typical college apartment/dorm one with mismatching decor, or no decor at all. Although we all love decking everything out in orange and blue (ahem, freshmen), there are other ways to spice up your home, making it more lively and livable. In this economy, it makes sense that no one wants to spend money on decorating his or her pad. There is beer to buy and clubs to attend the important facets of college life. But Im here to tell you that there are plenty of your place without dropping a single penny. Todays artists are big in the going green scene, and you can easily become one, too, by taking simple items from around your apartment and making them into something crazy or even something useful. So lets get started. This weeks idea comes from an industrial designer named Pierre Lota. Its as simple as creating a coat hook out of a bottle. Strange, right? Step 1: Finish off that 2-liter bottle sitting in your mini fridge. Step 2: Cut off the top of the bottle right where it starts curving upward toward the neck. You want the cylinder part to be the same diameter all the way up. Step 3: Cut 1-inch strips down the cylinder, stopping about 3 inches from the bottom. Do this around the entire bottle. Step 4: Bend back all the strips so that the bottle looks almost like a sun with the base in the middle, facing you and the strips spread out evenly all around. Step 5: the wall and nail into place. Step 6: Take your favorite jacket, umbrella or towel of choice (the one hang it right up. Voila! There you have it: a simple, easy way to recycle a bottle and have a trendy coat hook all at once. Pick whatever color bottle you want and feel free to get creative. You can burn the edges with a lighter, paint the outside or cut designs into the strips. In a matter of minutes, you just contributed to saving the earth and yourself of a few bucks. Now go buy more beer and grab your nicely placed, unwrinkled jacket on the way out. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 He Says She Says College life in this town can serve up a constant bombardment of new faces. Whether out on the town or trekking across campus, there are thousands of peeps we havent met just yet, but theres also those weve already brought into our circles. Our community of 20-somethings paves the way for networks of close friends and those special few whove made the coveted list of best buddies for life. But herein lies the question: Are we capable of having such platonic relationships with members of the sex were attracted to? Or does the ever-present temptation make sincere friendships impossible? Is there really such a thing as just friends? He Said, She Said: Is being just friends really possible? Ah yes, the question that continues to muddle boundaries between platonic love and the rules of attraction. Can one plainly and simply maintain a friendship cious? The answer to this question is both yes and no simultaneously, dependent on the individuals cated circumstantial factors. As a straight female who has a number of amazing male friends, I can reveal with full honesty that yes, it is absolutely possible for men and women to get along handsomely, share many common interests, hang out and talk for hours, get drunk together, crash at each others places and not boink. Even as I type this, I know it seems crazy, but its the truth. Whats not so clear is determining why some buds fall into category Friend Zone, while others are expedited into potential sheet-sharers. Why the differentiation? What does this say about the qualities we seek incompatibility, an element of drama, me attractive? (Dont answer that, guys. Let the mystery be.) For those who can relate to havhope you agree that if it aint broke, romantic feelings into these types of friendships just because Nora Ephron (Youve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally ) has trained us to think otherwise. Now, read between the lines: Do not hook up unless you have reality that casual sex with a friend is never, ever a good idea. Got it? falling for a bud, it is in both of your best interests to coolly confess these thoughts ASAP. Maybe your counter part has been thinking the same thing but is too scared to share it. And if the feeling isnt mutual, dont sweat it. As long as your confession avoids heavy sentiment, I can almost guarantee no friendship will be lost or harmed if the person is worth any sort of damn. KAY BEA Men are sex-driven creatures that rarely turn down the opportunity to indulge in our instincts. To my straight guys, if one of your female friends popped the, Do you want to _____ ? question, would you decline in order to protect your caring and meaningful friendship? Hell no you wouldnt. Were at a time in our lives when friends of the sex were attracted to are more than just casual acquaintances. We hang out with them at parties or chit-chat with them in class, but we hardly ever develop a truly heartfelt friendship. And if you think you do have one of those platonic friendships, consider this: Why did you begin talking to them? Was it because you thought they were attractive? Is there a chance you could be more than friends in the future? I talked it over with some guys, and they all agreed. If youre young and single, the lines that bound the Friend Zone are blurred at best. All it takes is one late night or one from Calculus is letting you derive her. Yet as my conversation with the guys continued, some of them admitted that they had a woman or two they considered a sister more of a sidekick than sweetheart. Shes the one you call up when all the bros are busy. Shes nice, she cares, she may even be pretty, but you wouldnt ever consider pulling any moves on her. But in college, genuine friends of the sex you swing to are about as common as campus parking. So, if you do have one, hold onto him or her. Youve got something special.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Fun with math, Muschamps intensity, finding FurmanAfter a successful debut, The Mailbag is back for the opening week of football season, and judging by the questions we @l_davis15: What are realistic expectations for Mack Brown and Mike Gillislee? Right now, Brown and Gillislee are not prominent members of the offense. Charlie Weis has made it clear that Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey are the top backs, and honestly, who could blame him? The strength of the offense in 2011 (if there is one) will be the combination of Demps and Rainey. Who knows if John Brantley is looking like the Heisman candidate Jaye Howard made him out to be, and who knows what the Gators rag-tag group of receivers can do? That actually may be good news for Brown and Gillislee, as Demps and Rainey havent shown they can barring injury, dont expect much from either this season. @Rizzmiggizz: How much more is 31 than 7? The difference between them is about seven inches the space between Steve Addazios ears. FSU fans should send him some love. @fcardillo: Reports say that Will Muschamp possesses a certain inability to smile, is this true? False. This nasty rumor obviously comes from the now-infamous Gators preseason poster featuring Coach Boom scowling with his arms folded. But Coach Boom has a soft side. Go ahead. Pick up the new Florida pockantly surprised. @RickyRegs: Aside from the obvious, do you see anyone giving the #gators trouble outside of the conference? Disregarding the obviously challenging Florida State, Floridas out-of-conference schedule consists of FAU, UAB and Furman. Since nobody can tell us where Furman is or what their mascot looks like, and were too lazy to look it up, were going to disregard them as a legitimate threat to UF. Howard Schnellenberger is sure to give it his all in his last go-round with FAU, but the Owls are nothing more than a middle-of-theroad Sun Belt team with marginal talent and a brand new quarterback. Running back Alfred Morris is legitimately good, but Floridas strength is the defensive front seven, so that wont matter. The game to watch is UAB. We know theyre probably in Furmans neighborhood, in the sense that most dont know a damn thing about them, and the three sane alligatorSports columnists expect this to be another walkover. But one brave soul sees things differently. The Blazers (yeah, we know the mascot) lost extremely close games on the road last season to Tennessee and Mississippi State, and they return most of their top talent. They have an experienced quarterback, a talented receiving corps and a new defense that Florida cant prepare for because nobodys ever seen it. Dont be shocked to see an upset pick out of our staff next week. @edrexler: How long will it take the Gators to get back to the oh-so-distant glory days of 2006 and 2008? Well, that all depends on a number of facfor our DeLorean. Next, we think your best bet would be to ask linebacker Jelani Jenkins; he seems like a smart fellow who might understand the intricacies of the space-time continuum. But if that doesnt work out (and we would be shocked if it did), it should take until at least 2013. Florida has the talent on the team now just look at the recruiting job Urban Meyer did the last two years and Muschamp is putting year. Floridas 2012 class is currently ranked No. 4 by Rivals.com, and it only stands to get better with some of the biggest recruits still in play. If these classes pan out, and the young talent on the team continues to mature, the Gators should be back in the hunt for BCS bowl games in Coach Booms third season. @bourbonmeyer: With Demps and Rainey both averaging 7.2 yards a carry, who do you Man, a math question? Our math may be questionable at best, but we arent about to be stumped by this submission. Basically what this question should say is: Who will get more touches, Demps or Rainey? If you listened to offensive coordinator Charlie Weis on Tuesday night, he had plenty of praise for the dynamic running back duo, even calling them the fastest players he has coached at any level. quite often, meaning theres always going to be a threat of them touching the ball, and lets be real, those two are the Gators most proven (and most explosive) weapons on offense. At the end of the day, though, we think mage. He hasnt missed a beat since the new offense was installed, while Demps missed spring and summer due to his budding track numbers, but we believe Rainey will get more touches as a receiver. After all, he did lead the team in touchdown receptions last season. ALLIGATOR STAFFTHE MAILBAG

After leading what should have been a rebuilding Gamecocks team to a 7-4 record, Spur rier got the nod for SEC Coach South Carolina. Muschamps Gators may not have the talent of last years group, but its fair for fans to optimistically expect a Spurrier-esque season, at the least. When Houston Nutt took over at Ole Miss in 2008, he was assuming the task of changing the entire mindset of a program that hadnt put together a winning season in four years. His plan? Eliminate penalties, take care of the ball and develop a familial attitude things Muschamp has tried to do at Florida. The adjustment was admittedly slower than Nutt anticipated, but a few critical early season wins, including the inception of Tim Tebows famous 2008 speech, really convinced his players to buy in. With a brutal October schedule featuring matchups against LSU, Alabama, Auburn and Georgia, Muschamp will have similar opportunities to score a galvanizing, statement victory. And even if he doesnt, the memory of the 2008 national championship is only three years old. Winning is still a part of this culture. If Nutt can take Ole Miss from 3-9 in 2007 to 8-4 in his opening season, then the sky should be the limit for Muschamps Gators. Nutts results may represent an have fared well overall. Of the ten returners Vanderbilts James year only three failed to maintain or improve their teams record in their inaugural season. Of those three, only Bobby Petrino, whose depleted Arkansas team went from 8-4 to 5-7 upon his arrival, was more than a single win worse. Pundits point to the schedule as a reason Muschamp wont succeed, but Dan Mullen brought Mississippi State from 4-8 to 5-7 Even Dooley expects Muschamp to have a big season, so much so that he opted not to counsel his close friend on the challenges that await him. Will doesnt need my advice, Dooley said. Hes a great football coach, hes been around a lot of great programs and hes ready for the job. He doesnt need any help from me, thats for sure. Muschamp supporters expect a lot from him, and the situation he enters is as strong as any a new coach could ask for. Its on him to deliver. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. which cornerbacks will start in Saturdays season opener. Moses Jenkins, Cody Riggs, Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins are competing for playing time. While a rotation could keep the groups energy high, Elam wishes the team had established starters. Its hard not to know who will play beside you, but I just continue to push the other players so that they can get better, he said. I want to feel comfortable. Injuries: Receiver Omarius Hines (hamstring) and corner back Jeremy Brown (sprained knee) remain questionable for Saturdays game. Brown ran during practice earlier this week, but he has not been able to participate in football activities, Muschamp said. Etc: With Texas A&Ms move to the Southeastern Confer ence appearing imminent, sever al SEC coaches were asked about the impact of the move. Muschamp danced around the topic, saying expansion wont change UFs approach: Were going to recruit the best players in the country; and if some of those are in Texas, so be it. Muschamp is perhaps most famous for his passionate tirades on the sidelines. He said he wont change his antics just because hes a head coach: I plan on being emotional; thats kind of me.

BOTH ATTENDED BUCHHOLZ HIGH. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer From their glory days at Gainesville Buchholz High to rooming together in college, freshmen Havana Solaun and Kim Sapienza have shared nearly every experience in their young soccer careers. No. 13 Florida (3-1-0), the two also share a common role on their new team as key conthe back line. Its really neat to have two kids from local Gainesville making big contributions to our program, UF coach Becky Burleigh said. I think that helps add local interest and the fact that the two of them have been able to make an impact right away is huge for both of them. In Floridas 3-2 win against Texas A&M last pair of local players in the programs 17-year two other Gainesville natives Kelli Eisenbrown (2003-2006) and Karah Smith (1996) have ever played in a game for Burleigh. The novelty of their rotation into the Gators lineup has worked brilliantly, with Solaun scoring in the season opener against Miami and then dishing an assist to junior Er ika Tymrak in the matchup with the Aggies. Havana has been involved in a lot of our goals, maybe not directly on the stat page with the assists, but certainly with part of the balls that have been set up to get the assist and then lead to the goal, Burleigh said. The 5-foot-4 Sapienza, meanwhile, began at Buchholz to a defensive role with Florida. Transitioning from high school to college, you just keep your options open because you never know where theyre going to see you playing, Sapienza said. It could be completely different. In her senior year with the Bobcats, Sapienza led the team in scoring with 28 goals, nine ahead of Solaun. If the Gators coaches called for it, Sapienza said she could see herself eventually making the change back to an attacking role as she gets older. fensive prowess less than a minute after being subbed in against UCLA on Saturday, when tion on Bruins goalie Katelyn Rowland. She kind of always intended on playing a defensive role, but she still gets into the attack a lot even as a defender, Solaun said. With Floridas home opener against Texas Tech (3-1-0) in James G. Pressly Stadium coming up this Friday, both players expect a large contingent of family and friends at the game. While playing collegiately is still an adjustment for her, Solaun said staying in town has given her a comfort level not seen by most freshmen. Its kind of been ingrained, being able to go to school where you grew up and play for the team and play with the girls youve always idolized, Solaun said. Watching them play and being able to play with them, its always been a dream.

Cross-training allows each player to be interchangeable at several the Gators want to implement based on the opponents offensive tendencies. Part of it is you wanted to put out the best guys, Quinn said. Sometimes it might just be for the opponent youre playing. This is a really big run team and wed like to time, and if theres a nickel situation, youd like to have more rushers. The Gators defensive coordinator went on to single out a handful of players as the teams best passrushers: William Green, Lerentee McCray and Ronald Powell the best from the outside, and Easley and Floyd the most consistent inside. Beyond strategy, Quinn said cross-training also helps in the event of an injury. With Floridas unproven depth in the front seven, if one player goes down, another can just slide into the position without having to worry about losing a step. We certainly are a work in progress, Quinn said. But Im encouraged with where were at and where were heading with that group. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org.

This proposed regulation addresses universities that are seeking to expand their academic programs outside of their geographic locations. The controversy comes when these expansions are made into ritory. Under the new wording, universities seeking such expansion must gain approval by the Board of Governors Chancellor Frank Brogan and chairwoman Ava Parker.

The fair, hosted at the beginning of each semester by the Office of Sustainability, aims to educate students about the various types of transportation available. Students, staff and faculty are fresh, and maybe theyre settling into a new routine for the year, so it serves to be an educational reminder of what kind of modes and options are on campus and around Gainesville, said Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator for the UF Office of Sustainability. Different organizations set up booths for the fair. The Office of Sustainability, RTS services, UF Transportation and Parking Services, the City of Gainesville, Gainesville Police and GOTCHA Ride each had its own booth. RTS services distributed fliers about various bus routes. UF transportation services spoke to students about the Zipcar program, which is a by-the-hour car rental program available to UF faculty and students. Gainesville Police and the City of Gainesville spoke about bike safety and traveling rules. GOTCHA Ride advertised its free services to students who need a safe ride home from downtown. Its a safe, easy and eco-friendly way to get home, Pennington said. The fair is the kickoff to the Office of Sustainabilitys One Less Car program. Each year, a day in October is chosen to be One Less Car Day. People are urged to try different methods of transportation on that day, which, this year, will be held on Oct. 26. People can register for One Less Car Day at www.sustainable.ufl.edu/onelesscar. The first 800 people to register for the event will receive a free One Less Car T-shirt.

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterIf youre a customer of the Thornebrook Gallery, Tricia Fisher probably knows you. The gallery manager knows if your mothers ears arent pierced or if she prefers long, dangling earrings. She knows where your brother goes to school, if your dads knife collection could use an update and whether you prefer abstract paintings or nature scenes. If gallery owner David Arrighi orders a piece Fisher thinks youd like, shell give you a personal phone call. Originally opened in 1981 by two UF alumni as a framing shop, it is this sense of intimacy and friendliness that has kept the Thornebrook Gallery alive for 30 years a milestone which the gallery will celebrate throughout the month of September. The gallery, located in the Thornebrook Village shopping center off ranging from paintings, artisan jewelry and glass sculptures to intricate knives, woodworking and pottery. But it hasnt forgotten its origins in framing. A wall in the back of the store boasts six sliding displays of frames a ser vice the gallery and its employees take pride in. What we attempt to do with the frames is enhance what is already there, Fisher said. The 1980s frame shop slowly grew into an art gallery as the owners began displaying the two-dimensional artwork, such as paintings and photography, of local artists. As the gallery continued to grow, Ar righi expanded his collection to include other three-dimensional mediums such as glass, jewelry and ceramics. The 30th anniversary is a celebration of both local artists and the relationship they have with the Thornebrook Gallery. The gallery will kick off its celebration on Sept. 9 with The Mob a showcase of 37 local artists that will run through Sept. 14. Each artist will bring one piece to display and sell, and the gallery will provide live music and refreshments. The party will continue through the following weekend with the opening of the gallerys Trish Beckham exhibit a local artist who paints realistic Floridian nature scenes and the launch of Gallery Magazine, a publication focusing on local art, culture and food.Thornebrook Gallery marks 30th year open for businessON CAMPUS

It retails for $340 but can be rented for a mere $50. THE WEBSITE HAS BRANCHES WITH COLLEGE CAMPUSES ACROSS THE NATION, INCLUDING UF. KIERA WRIGHT-RUIZAvenue Writer Rent the Runway has already become a staple for fashionistas on a budget, and now the company is focusing on college women with a desire for designer. In 2009, Rent the Runway, which allows users to rent designer items from dresses to jewelry to handbags for a fraction of the retail cost, expanded to college campuses nationwide with Rent the Runway On Campus (RTROnCampus.com). The extension is a college-dedicated website that offers beauty advice, fashion tips, girl talk, entertainment news and information on RTRs Runway Rep program. The site also serves as an interactive community for all 500 Runway Reps across college campuses to monitor each campuss progress, allow networking opportunities and serve as an open forum to share ideas. The site is powered by 14 bloggers stemming from college campuses throughout the U.S. Since its development, the program has grown from 50 to 125 schools (including UF) and from 150 to 500 Runway representatives. According to Rent the Runway president and co-founder Jenny Fleiss, college-age women account for 20 per cent of RTRs customers. [Students] are already renting for all of the occasions in their lives, whether it is sorority events, 21st birthdays, tailgating parties, weddings, spring breaks or graduations, Fleiss said. Rent the Runway allows users to search for dresses by occasion and price range, according to Kelsey Munyan, a RTR UF public relations representative. Were obviously college students, Munyan said. We dont have tons of cash lying around, yet we have all these big events going on in our lives right now. Youre getting a $2,000 dress to wear and youre only paying $100 for it, where if you would have bought it for $2,000, you may have only worn it once. UFs branch of RTR On Campus (rtroncampus.com/tag/uf) is kicking off its second year. This year, Munyan said the number of UF RTR representatives has grown to eight and that the program will also be hosting more events. There will also be a RTR fashion show, but a date has not been set yet, she said. [RTR On Campus] is more about bringing together this community of young women for fashion-minded people, Munyan said. Rent the Runway offers items from more than 150 designers, 25,000 dresses and 4,000 accessories. When an order is placed, the customer picks her dress of choice in two for a maximum of four days. Shipping is free when returning the product. Retail prices for dresses range from around $200 to more than $2,000, but RTR users only shell out $50 to $350 for a rental. Beauty products and accessories are also offered. The inspiration for RTR came when its co-founder, Jennifer Hyman, was home for Thanksgiving and had a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear at the moment, Fleiss said. Women everywhere can live the life they dream today by having access to designer brands that otherwise would have been unattainable, she said.

You walk in. Theres an empty space. A cheap table from Walmart is nestled in the corner, and a thin doormat rests under your feet. Yup, you have just entered your typical college apartment/dorm one with mismatching decor, or no decor at all. Although we all love decking everything out in orange and blue (ahem, freshmen), there are other ways to spice up your home, making it more lively and livable. In this economy, it makes sense that no one wants to spend money on decorating his or her pad. There is beer to buy and clubs to attend the important facets of college life. But Im here to tell you that there are plenty of your place without dropping a single penny. Todays artists are big in the going green scene, and you can easily become one, too, by taking simple items from around your apartment and making them into something crazy or even something useful. So lets get started. This weeks idea comes from an industrial designer named Pierre Lota. Its as simple as creating a coat hook out of a bottle. Strange, right? Step 1: Finish off that 2-liter bottle sitting in your mini fridge. Step 2: Cut off the top of the bottle right where it starts curving upward toward the neck. You want the cylinder part to be the same diameter all the way up. Step 3: Cut 1-inch strips down the cylinder, stopping about 3 inches from the bottom. Do this around the entire bottle. Step 4: Bend back all the strips so that the bottle looks almost like a sun with the base in the middle, facing you and the strips spread out evenly all around. Step 5: the wall and nail into place. Step 6: Take your favorite jacket, umbrella or towel of choice (the one hang it right up. Voila! There you have it: a simple, easy way to recycle a bottle and have a trendy coat hook all at once. Pick whatever color bottle you want and feel free to get creative. You can burn the edges with a lighter, paint the outside or cut designs into the strips. In a matter of minutes, you just contributed to saving the earth and yourself of a few bucks. Now go buy more beer and grab your nicely placed, unwrinkled jacket on the way out. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 He Says She Says College life in this town can serve up a constant bombardment of new faces. Whether out on the town or trekking across campus, there are thousands of peeps we havent met just yet, but theres also those weve already brought into our circles. Our community of 20-somethings paves the way for networks of close friends and those special few whove made the coveted list of best buddies for life. But herein lies the question: Are we capable of having such platonic relationships with members of the sex were attracted to? Or does the ever-present temptation make sincere friendships impossible? Is there really such a thing as just friends? He Said, She Said: Is being just friends really possible? Ah yes, the question that continues to muddle boundaries between platonic love and the rules of attraction. Can one plainly and simply maintain a friendship cious? The answer to this question is both yes and no simultaneously, dependent on the individuals cated circumstantial factors. As a straight female who has a number of amazing male friends, I can reveal with full honesty that yes, it is absolutely possible for men and women to get along handsomely, share many common interests, hang out and talk for hours, get drunk together, crash at each others places and not boink. Even as I type this, I know it seems crazy, but its the truth. Whats not so clear is determining why some buds fall into category Friend Zone, while others are expedited into potential sheet-sharers. Why the differentiation? What does this say about the qualities we seek incompatibility, an element of drama, me attractive? (Dont answer that, guys. Let the mystery be.) For those who can relate to havhope you agree that if it aint broke, romantic feelings into these types of friendships just because Nora Ephron (Youve Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally ) has trained us to think otherwise. Now, read between the lines: Do not hook up unless you have reality that casual sex with a friend is never, ever a good idea. Got it? falling for a bud, it is in both of your best interests to coolly confess these thoughts ASAP. Maybe your counterpart has been thinking the same thing but is too scared to share it. And if the feeling isnt mutual, dont sweat it. As long as your confession avoids heavy sentiment, I can almost guarantee no friendship will be lost or harmed if the person is worth any sort of damn. KAY BEA Men are sex-driven creatures that rarely turn down the opportunity to indulge in our instincts. To my straight guys, if one of your female friends popped the, Do you want to _____ ? question, would you decline in order to protect your caring and meaningful friendship? Hell no you wouldnt. Were at a time in our lives when friends of the sex were attracted to are more than just casual acquaintances. We hang out with them at parties or chit-chat with them in class, but we hardly ever develop a truly heartfelt friendship. And if you think you do have one of those platonic friendships, consider this: Why did you begin talking to them? Was it because you thought they were attractive? Is there a chance you could be more than friends in the future? I talked it over with some guys, and they all agreed. If youre young and single, the lines that bound the Friend Zone are blurred at best. All it takes is one late night or one from Calculus is letting you derive her. Yet as my conversation with the guys continued, some of them admitted that they had a woman or two they considered a sister more of a sidekick than sweetheart. Shes the one you call up when all the bros are busy. Shes nice, she cares, she may even be pretty, but you wouldnt ever consider pulling any moves on her. But in college, genuine friends of the sex you swing to are about as common as campus parking. So, if you do have one, hold onto him or her. Youve got something special.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 19 Fun with math, Muschamps intensity, finding FurmanAfter a successful debut, The Mailbag is back for the opening week of football season, and judging by the questions we @l_davis15: What are realistic expectations for Mack Brown and Mike Gillislee? Right now, Brown and Gillislee are not prominent members of the offense. Charlie Weis has made it clear that Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey are the top backs, and honestly, who could blame him? The strength of the offense in 2011 (if there is one) will be the combination of Demps and Rainey. Who knows if John Brantley is looking like the Heisman candidate Jaye Howard made him out to be, and who knows what the Gators rag-tag group of receivers can do? That actually may be good news for Brown and Gillislee, as Demps and Rainey havent shown they can barring injury, dont expect much from either this season. @Rizzmiggizz: How much more is 31 than 7? The difference between them is about seven inches the space between Steve Addazios ears. FSU fans should send him some love. @fcardillo: Reports say that Will Muschamp possesses a certain inability to smile, is this true? False. This nasty rumor obviously comes from the now-infamous Gators preseason poster featuring Coach Boom scowling with his arms folded. But Coach Boom has a soft side. Go ahead. Pick up the new Florida pockantly surprised. @RickyRegs: Aside from the obvious, do you see anyone giving the #gators trouble outside of the conference? Disregarding the obviously challenging Florida State, Floridas out-of-conference schedule consists of FAU, UAB and Furman. Since nobody can tell us where Furman is or what their mascot looks like, and were too lazy to look it up, were going to disregard them as a legitimate threat to UF. Howard Schnellenberger is sure to give it his all in his last go-round with FAU, but the Owls are nothing more than a middle-of-theroad Sun Belt team with marginal talent and a brand new quarterback. Running back Alfred Morris is legitimately good, but Floridas strength is the defensive front seven, so that wont matter. The game to watch is UAB. We know theyre probably in Furmans neighborhood, in the sense that most dont know a damn thing about them, and the three sane alligatorSports columnists expect this to be another walkover. But one brave soul sees things differently. The Blazers (yeah, we know the mascot) lost extremely close games on the road last season to Tennessee and Mississippi State, and they return most of their top talent. They have an experienced quarterback, a talented receiving corps and a new defense that Florida cant prepare for because nobodys ever seen it. Dont be shocked to see an upset pick out of our staff next week. @edrexler: How long will it take the Gators to get back to the oh-so-distant glory days of 2006 and 2008? Well, that all depends on a number of facfor our DeLorean. Next, we think your best bet would be to ask linebacker Jelani Jenkins; he seems like a smart fellow who might understand the intricacies of the space-time continuum. But if that doesnt work out (and we would be shocked if it did), it should take until at least 2013. Florida has the talent on the team now just look at the recruiting job Urban Meyer did the last two years and Muschamp is putting year. Floridas 2012 class is currently ranked No. 4 by Rivals.com, and it only stands to get better with some of the biggest recruits still in play. If these classes pan out, and the young talent on the team continues to mature, the Gators should be back in the hunt for BCS bowl games in Coach Booms third season. @bourbonmeyer: With Demps and Rainey both averaging 7.2 yards a carry, who do you Man, a math question? Our math may be questionable at best, but we arent about to be stumped by this submission. Basically what this question should say is: Who will get more touches, Demps or Rainey? If you listened to offensive coordinator Charlie Weis on Tuesday night, he had plenty of praise for the dynamic running back duo, even calling them the fastest players he has coached at any level. quite often, meaning theres always going to be a threat of them touching the ball, and lets be real, those two are the Gators most proven (and most explosive) weapons on offense. At the end of the day, though, we think mage. He hasnt missed a beat since the new offense was installed, while Demps missed spring and summer due to his budding track numbers, but we believe Rainey will get more touches as a receiver. After all, he did lead the team in touchdown receptions last season. ALLIGATOR STAFFTHE MAILBAG

After leading what should have been a rebuilding Gamecocks team to a 7-4 record, Spur rier got the nod for SEC Coach South Carolina. Muschamps Gators may not have the talent of last years group, but its fair for fans to optimistically expect a Spurrier-esque season, at the least. When Houston Nutt took over at Ole Miss in 2008, he was assuming the task of changing the entire mindset of a program that hadnt put together a winning season in four years. His plan? Eliminate penalties, take care of the ball and develop a familial attitude things Muschamp has tried to do at Florida. The adjustment was admittedly slower than Nutt anticipated, but a few critical early season wins, including the inception of Tim Tebows famous 2008 speech, really convinced his players to buy in. With a brutal October schedule featuring matchups against LSU, Alabama, Auburn and Georgia, Muschamp will have similar opportunities to score a galvanizing, statement victory. And even if he doesnt, the memory of the 2008 national championship is only three years old. Winning is still a part of this culture. If Nutt can take Ole Miss from 3-9 in 2007 to 8-4 in his opening season, then the sky should be the limit for Muschamps Gators. Nutts results may represent an have fared well overall. Of the ten returners Vanderbilts James year only three failed to maintain or improve their teams record in their inaugural season. Of those three, only Bobby Petrino, whose depleted Arkansas team went from 8-4 to 5-7 upon his arrival, was more than a single win worse. Pundits point to the schedule as a reason Muschamp wont succeed, but Dan Mullen brought Mississippi State from 4-8 to 5-7 Even Dooley expects Muschamp to have a big season, so much so that he opted not to counsel his close friend on the challenges that await him. Will doesnt need my advice, Dooley said. Hes a great football coach, hes been around a lot of great programs and hes ready for the job. He doesnt need any help from me, thats for sure. Muschamp supporters expect a lot from him, and the situation he enters is as strong as any a new coach could ask for. Its on him to deliver. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. which cornerbacks will start in Saturdays season opener. Moses Jenkins, Cody Riggs, Marcus Roberson and Jaylen Watkins are competing for playing time.   While a rotation could keep the groups energy high, Elam wishes the team had established starters. Its hard not to know who will play beside you, but I just continue to push the other players so that they can get better, he said. I want to feel comfortable. Injuries: Receiver Omarius Hines (hamstring) and corner back Jeremy Brown (sprained knee) remain questionable for Saturdays game. Brown ran during practice earlier this week, but he has not been able to participate in football activities, Muschamp said. Etc: With Texas A&Ms move to the Southeastern Confer ence appearing imminent, sever al SEC coaches were asked about the impact of the move. Muschamp danced around the topic, saying expansion wont change UFs approach: Were going to recruit the best players in the country; and if some of those are in Texas, so be it. Muschamp is perhaps most famous for his passionate tirades on the sidelines. He said he wont change his antics just because hes a head coach: I plan on being emotional; thats kind of me. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. 18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2011Alligator File PhotoGators defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said sophomore Sharrif Floyd would play defensive end in the teams base package and would slide inside to play tackle in nickel packages. BOTH ATTENDED BUCHHOLZ HIGH. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer From their glory days at Gainesville Buchholz High to rooming together in college, freshmen Havana Solaun and Kim Sapienza have shared nearly every experience in their young soccer careers. No. 13 Florida (3-1-0), the two also share a common role on their new team as key conthe back line. Its really neat to have two kids from local Gainesville making big contributions to our program, UF coach Becky Burleigh said. I think that helps add local interest and the fact that the two of them have been able to make an impact right away is huge for both of them. In Floridas 3-2 win against Texas A&M last pair of local players in the programs 17-year two other Gainesville natives Kelli Eisenbrown (2003-2006) and Karah Smith (1996) have ever played in a game for Burleigh. The novelty of their rotation into the Gators lineup has worked brilliantly, with Solaun scoring in the season opener against Miami and then dishing an assist to junior Er ika Tymrak in the matchup with the Aggies. Havana has been involved in a lot of our goals, maybe not directly on the stat page with the assists, but certainly with part of the balls that have been set up to get the assist and then lead to the goal, Burleigh said. The 5-foot-4 Sapienza, meanwhile, began at Buchholz to a defensive role with Florida. Transitioning from high school to college, you just keep your options open because you never know where theyre going to see you playing, Sapienza said. It could be completely different. In her senior year with the Bobcats, Sapienza led the team in scoring with 28 goals, nine ahead of Solaun. If the Gators coaches called for it, Sapienza said she could see herself eventually making the change back to an attacking role as she gets older. fensive prowess less than a minute after being subbed in against UCLA on Saturday, when tion on Bruins goalie Katelyn Rowland. She kind of always intended on playing a defensive role, but she still gets into the attack a lot even as a defender, Solaun said. With Floridas home opener against Texas Tech (3-1-0) in James G. Pressly Stadium coming up this Friday, both players expect a large contingent of family and friends at the game. While playing collegiately is still an adjustment for her, Solaun said staying in town has given her a comfort level not seen by most freshmen. Its kind of been ingrained, being able to go to school where you grew up and play for the team and play with the girls youve always idolized, Solaun said. Watching them play and being able to play with them, its always been a dream. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org.Freshmen Solaun, Sapienza bring local energy to Gators GREG, from page 20 NOTE, from page 20Muschamp not worried about Texas A&MFloyd playing multiple positions in new defenseFloyd) are switching between nose tackle and defensive tackle, or defensive tackle and defensive end. Particularly, Quinn said Floyd, who was the No. 1 defensive tackle recruit in 2010 according to Rivals. com, will be playing end in the Gators base defense and tackle in their nickel package. Cross-training allows each player to be interchangeable at several the Gators want to implement based on the opponents offensive tendencies. Part of it is you wanted to put out the best guys, Quinn said. Sometimes it might just be for the opponent youre playing. This is a really big run team and wed like to time, and if theres a nickel situation, youd like to have more rushers. The Gators defensive coordinator went on to single out a handful of players as the teams best passrushers: William Green, Lerentee McCray and Ronald Powell the best from the outside, and Easley and Floyd the most consistent inside. Beyond strategy, Quinn said cross-training also helps in the event of an injury. With Floridas unproven depth in the front seven, if one player goes down, another can just slide into the position without having to worry about losing a step. We certainly are a work in progress, Quinn said. But Im encouraged with where were at and where were heading with that group. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org.
