MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Staff Writer Gainesville Police searched three local convenience stores Thursday as part of a months-long investigation into extensive food stamp fraud. GPD Cpl. Marc Plourde said the potential fraud could amount to hundreds of thousands of misspent dollars. GPD issued search warrants for the following establishments: the S.M.I. Food Mart at 404 S Main St., the Shiblu Kwik Stop at 727 SW Fourth Ave. and the 99 Cents and More Convenience Store at 1308 E University Ave. No one was arrested. The searches were part of a covert investigation that is ongoing, said Plourde, the case agent for the investigation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and other agencies have also been involved in the operation, according to Cpl. The joint investigation centered on concerns that loTransfer cards given to participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program. For example, cards could have been accepted for items that arent permitted for use by government regulations. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has various regulations for the use of its EBT cards.

Under block tuition, the university dents regardless of the number of credits taken. Currently, students pay by the credit hour. UF Provost Joe Glover said recent graduation rates factored into the decision to reconsider the controversial measure. For students who entered UF in 2006, the four-year graduation rate was 64 percent, a jump from 58 percent for students who entered in 2005. Glover said he is in discussion with UF President Bernie Machen about the issue. [Machen] has told me hes thinking about taking it off the table, Glover said. Student Body President Ben Meyers, along with Student Government and student activist groups, opposes the measure. Meyers said Machen has been very receptive to Meyers concerns, and he hopes the proposal will be pulled Tuesday at a conference call of UFs Board of Trustees. Based upon our conversations, I would think that the proposal would be pulled, Meyers said. The UF Board of Trustees approved a block tuition proposal in December that delayed implementation until December 2012, pending approval from the Board of Governors, the state university systems highest governing body. The proposal was never sent to the higher board.

Productivity was slow, and work had to be done before 3 p.m., when the torrential rains came in, right on cue. You might get one thing done in a day, and that was a big success, DeMarsh said.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 Ashley Crane / AlligatorCadet Sgt. Ben Mathews, a family, youth and community sciences major, lifts a log in a drill to prepare for Ranger Challenge. ABOUT 1,200 SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN COLLECTED. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterWhen students vote in Student Government elections on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, they will get the chance to voice their opinions on UFs recent tuition hike. Students for a Democratic Society put the referendum question on the ballot in hopes of rallying students to speak out against the 15 percent increase, said SDS member Chrisley Carpio. A referendum question gauges student opinion on an issue. The UF Board of Trustees unanimously passed the tuition hike in June. State legislators voted in the spring for an 8 percent increase and allowed individual universities to raise their tuition up to an additional 7 percent. Since Monday, SDS members have collected about 1,200 student signatures on Tur lington Plaza. SDS members will also hold an extended campaign to protest the tuition increase. Carpio said the organization is looking to hold a rally around Sept. 17. She said the group plans to demand a meeting with administrators to discuss alternative ways of making up She said that many students scholarships are decreasing and that students are having to work harder to make ends meet. Education is supposed to be for the students, right? Carpio said.

About 120 cadets from UF, Santa Fe College, St. Leo University and College of Central Florida attended the event on Flavet Field, according to Cadet Lt. Col. Eric Strnad, a UF criminology senior. Cadets from Santa Fe, St. Leo and CF participated in all of UF ROTCs Thursday afternoon labs, Strnad said. Cadets climbed a rock wall and exwere left unloaded per campus regulations. They also learned about air defense artillery and checked out Humvees and a helicopter. Strnad said ROTC holds the event every year to introduce new cadets to ROTC and smaller programs within it, such as Raiders and Ranger Challenge, two teams of cadets that participate in military skills competitions against other ROTC programs. Members of Gator Guard Drill Team, Raiders and Ranger Challenge demonstrated their skills to the new cadets. Were basically showing off everything we can do, Strnad said. The goal is to make new students aware that the ROTC program is more than just a class. These groups are more than groups, he said. Theyre almost fraternal. Cadet 2nd Lt. Matthew Runnels said he probably would not have been able to complete college without the support of the ROTC program. Now a senior majoring in geography, he said he joined ROTC as a freshman for the experience. I never would have been skydiving; I never would have repelled out of a helicopter if not for the Army, he said.STUDENT LIFE

These werent the collared and khakied country-twanged famous for wielding silverware as they lean over their tailgating feasts. No. My classmates were acting worse than, dare I say it, NFL fans. It made me think: Are we really the spoiled and spray-tanned brats who put in a backbreaking effort to win the title of Americas douchiest college? Ill let you decide.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Check your chocolateAs another Halloween approaches and parents in the Gainesville area think about buying chocolate treats for children, here is something to consider: The chocolate you buy could be tainted with child labor. Sept. 19 marks the 10-year anniversary of the signing of the Harkin-Engel Protocol an agreement by the countrys largest chocolate companies to put an end to forced child labor on cocoa farms in West Africa by 2005. Ten years later, not enough progress has been made. Hundreds of thousands of children are still forced to work under abusive conditions for long hours on cocoa farms in West Africa while others are victims The largest chocolate manufacturer in the U.S., Hershey, lags behind its competitors in eliminating these abuses from its cocoa supply chain. Whats more, Hershey has been exploiting student guest workers here in the U.S. in one of its packing facilities, according to activist organizations like change.org. Some of Hersheys competitors, including Mars and Nestle, have committed to start sourcing cocoa that is independently rights standards. I urge Hershey the most iconic chocolate company in the U.S. to protect workers from bean to bar and certify its chocolate as Fair Trade. Hopefully, this measure will ensure that forced child labor is removed from its chocolate bars, its Kisses and its peanut butter cups. In the meantime, Ill be handchocolate to my trick-or-treaters this Halloween. Cindy Campbell Gainesville residentLetters to the EditorT smart decision. At the time, I had just moved to Gainesville from our farm in New York. I was attending a private college in Buffalo where I studied advertising and meat The Malcom Randall VA Medical Center. When she announced the news to the family, I thought, yeah, shorts all year round. I applied to UF and Santa Fe College and got into both, and because the College of Journalism and Communications was and still is renowned, I was thrilled to become a Florida Gator. I had the time of my life here, working as the photo editor of the Alligator and then as a photo intern at the Gainesville Sun. have worked as a photo intern at the Ann Arbor News and various Syracuse newspapers. After freelancing in Denver, I landed a job designing the Oakland Tribune. Later, I became a high school teacher. You have met those people who lived here a long time ago and have come back to roost thats me, too. I cant quite explain how or why we come back, but I once wrote a feature about homing pigeons and their innate ability to return to the place where they were born. I wasnt really born in Gainesville, but I certainly discovered who I am here. So now that I am home to roost, I thought I would share my top 10 reasons why its so cool to be older, wiser and back in school: The youngsters give up their seats for me on the bus. Sneaky smokers sitting in the outdoor amphitheater by the Reitz Union think I work here so when they see me, they run and hide. Then, I yell out, Sir, this is a tobacco-free campus, and they run faster. Students whom I dont know randomly wave at me because they miss their moms. I get all of my professors jokes. show at the Reitz Union movie theater. My mortgage payment is less than the rent for one room in a four-bedroom condo at an all-inclusive apartment complex. The trees next to the French Fries have grown 20 feet taller since I graduated. Now, it doesnt look out of place at all. I can sit in the alumni or the student section at football games. No more relying on any rascally library coding system to do my research, but I could if we lost electricity. Finally, I can still publish work in the Alligator.

Sophomore setter Chanel Brown is impressing coaches and teammates alike in her second year. See Story, Page 20. UF PLAYS FAU AT 7 P.M. SATURDAY IN THE SWAMP. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Linebacker Jon Bostic and the rest of the Gators dont care about their preseason No. 23 ranking, nor are they concerned about outsiders looking down on them following a disappointing season a year ago. A lot of people from everywhere are overlooking us, Bostic said. Everyones kind of like, The forgotten Gators. It doesnt bother us at all. Thats how were trying to look at it. Bostic, a junior, and his teammates feel slighted. After enduring a trying season in 2010, the Gators dealt with an overwhelming offseason. They had to adjust to a new head coach, an overhauled staff, revamped offensive and defensive schemes, the transfer of their best player and cope with the stigma of an 8-5 season. But when Florida takes the Florida Atlantic in coach Will Muschamps debut, all of that will be behind the new-look Gators. Theres a lot of things that went wrong last year, but this is another year, Bostic said. A lot of people have changed what we did in the offseason, getting more focused for these games this year. However, several players admitted this week all the preseason talk of change and fresh starts means nothing to the Gators if they struggle out of the gate like they did last season. With a preseason No. 4 ranking in 2010, expectations were high for a Florida team that made back-to-back Southeastern Conference title game appearances and was two seasons removed from hoisting the BCS Championship trophy in Miami.Like the Gators, this week is our a young, inexperienced group with a little bit of upside. Everyone has been working hard all month, and we feel like were hitting our stride. But until you actually enter the arena and compete, you still have doubt. The arena, of course, is the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column. The competition? Who can do the best. The reward? Well, being the champ has always been a good icebreaker at Midtown. To kick off the season, we let two of our writers debate the GeorgiaBoise State game. Here we go. Boise State (-3) will eat all the Kibbles N Bits on Saturday because Theres a reason the Bulldogs experienced a mass exodus during the offseason: Youd have to be Ray Charles to not see Georgia isnt what it once was. The dynamic duo of Matt Stafford and A.J. Green couldnt even save coach Mark Richt from falling to the proverbial hot seat. Now, UGA is counting on a crop of inexperienced running backs since Washaun Ealey jumped off the sink to help bolster an offense led by quarterback Aaron Murray. While Murray may turn out to be the best passer in the Southeastern Confer ence, hell still need that running game to create space for the receivers and get the eighth man out of the box. And thats where it gets ugly for Georgia. Only one back (Richard Chunks Samuel) has starting experience, and the rest are extremely raw. Sprinkle in Boises run-defense its a done deal. Get out the shock collar because the Dawgs will not be Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: 7 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPNU/WRUF AM850 SEE PICKS, P AGE 15Alligator File PhotoFlorida linebacker Jon Bostic said people are overlooking the Gators this season after an 8-5 record last year. Bostic said the Gators must avoid another slow start to prove the doubters wrong. Forgotten Gators ready for opener against FAU UF SOCCER JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer After a record four-game road trip to begin the 2011 season, Florida plays its home opener tonight against Texas Tech at home. However, the Gators focus is not on the Red Raiders its on themselves. Were pretty much focused on professing what we are doing as a team, said junior in on that and make sure we are doing the right things, we can make sure that Texas Tech, no matter what they throw at us, its something we can handle. The No. 13 Gators (3-1), despite their solid start to the season, are not resting on their laurels as they head into their home opener. Rather than dissecting the Red Raiders, the Gators have focused their energy this week on executing the game plan and addressing areas of their performance that did not meet their season. The Gators split their two games in Knoxville, Tenn., at last weekends First Lady Vol Classic with a 3-2 win against Texas A&M and a 2-0 loss to No. 6 UCLA. While Florida head coach Becky Burleigh said there were positives to take away from the Gators weekend in Tennessee, she believes the games revealed areas in which her team still needs to make improvements. turnovers and the Gators defensive play as a team, not necessarily their back line. Gators two games, while Texas A&M launched 21 and UCLA attempted 19. To this point we have kind of focused more Avant.

But the Gators limped through their opener against Miami (Ohio) as the offense struggled, setting the tone for a lackluster year. There were errant snaps, Florida fumbled the ball eight times, and a passing offense that came in with high hopes managed a meager 113 yards. It just killed the momentum, quarterback John Brantley said. It just kind of sucked the wind out of us, I guess you could say. If you have good plays and something like that happens, it just kind of sucks the wind out of us. With the team preparing for Saturdays season opener throughout fall camp, the Gators know what they need to do to prevent a similar stumble out of the gates. Muschamp has preached turnover margin, and sophomore Trey Burton said the team is looking to limit turnovers as well as penalties, and develop a good tempo in the debut of Charlie Weis offense. Its real important to step on and just keep going, Brantley said. Dont let off. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org. 14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 CROSS COUNTRY OPENS SLATE TODAY.

Both squads will run a short, tune-up style race, featuring a two-mile run at 6:30 p.m. for the women, followed immediately by a mens 5k race. Along with host Western Carolina, three other unranked teams UNC-Asheville, North Greenville and Warren Wilson will be competing against Florida. Coach (Mike) Holloway and I talked about running a little earlier to generate more focus and just preparation over the summer months, knowing that alright, you report back and pretty quickly youre going to be lining up and putting a uniform on, Morgan said. out of eligibility, the No. 22 womens team looks to lean heavily on resurgent senior Genevieve LaCaze and sophomore Cory McGee for leadership in the early meets. The returning duo is coming off a stellar track record for the womens steeplechase and McGee was honored as the 2011 Southeastern Conference Womens Indoor Freshman Runner of the Year. Were actually really lucky for Cory and I to have that kind of [track season] to get us rolling for fall, LaCaze said. We didnt get to have Charlotte in the track season last year, so it was a little bit of a transition for us. The No. 26 mens team is also looking to regroup after former UF runner Dumisane Hlaselo was kicked off the team for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in June. Last season, the South African native was the only mens runner to qualify for the NCAA Championship. With the loss of their dominant runner, senior Josh Izewski said the squads chemistry and expecproach. With everyone working together like that, like not one person whos trying to be it, you know its going to be better for when were out there and actually on the course and were not worrying about Oh, whos going to beat who?

Now is when we are starting to work on the defensive part of things. Avant said UF has placed a heavy emphasis on one-on-one defense in practice this week. She believes that if the Gators execute their defense in all of their formations, they can neutralize any Red Raiders attack. While the Floridas focal point this week has been sharpening their defensive play, Burleigh said that doesnt mean they are taking Texas Tech lightly. We dont take anybody for granted by game, and we need to defend our turf. tonight at Pressly Stadium, they will get to speak with a couple of former Gators who have some recent big-game experience of their own. Heather Mitts and Abby Wambach, both of whom are less than two months removed from their FIFA Womens World Cup Final appearance with the U.S. womens national team, will speak with the Gators prior to the game and sign autographs for fans after. Being able to get any sort of advice and Barney said. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Chanel Brown busted into college volleyShe was a Southeastern Conference AllFreshman team selection, Floridas primary setter and the team leader in assists per set. But what gets overlooked is Brown was enduring a major learning process. Coming out of high school as one of the nations top outside hitters, the 5-foot-9 sophomore had never been a setter before. A very good athlete with a lot of tools, coach Mary Wise said. that position. Redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe got plenty of opportunities to watch Browns play last season while sidelined with a broken bone in her ankle. She described her teammate as an energetic and talented playAfter an offseason of long hours in the gym, Unroe insists Brown is much improved. This year shes very sure of herself and taking coaching a lot better, Unroe said. Browns freshman year was a challenge, although her stats might not show it. Coming in your freshman year, youre just learning the whole aspect of the game and how fast paced it is, but now were in a rhythm and just letting the offense come naturally, Brown said. Specializing in assists, Brown tends to fall under the radar while powerful hitters like Kelly Murphy, Stephanie Ferrell and Kristy Jaeckel soak up the attention. After opening the season with 54 assists in three proved in connecting with the Gators more celebrated attackers. said. Shes taken a ton of reps setting the ball. She was in here at noon [Thursday] taking extra reps. While the season has opened with success, Brown and her teammates have the same goal a national championship for a team that has repeatedly failed to take that next step.

MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Staff Writer Gainesville Police searched three local convenience stores Thursday as part of a months-long investigation into extensive food stamp fraud. GPD Cpl. Marc Plourde said the potential fraud could amount to hundreds of thousands of misspent dollars. GPD issued search warrants for the following establishments: the S.M.I. Food Mart at 404 S Main St., the Shiblu Kwik Stop at 727 SW Fourth Ave. and the 99 Cents and More Convenience Store at 1308 E University Ave. No one was arrested. The searches were part of a covert investigation that is ongoing, said Plourde, the case agent for the investigation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and other agencies have also been involved in the operation, according to Cpl. The joint investigation centered on concerns that loTransfer cards given to participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program. For example, cards could have been accepted for items that arent permitted for use by government regulations. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has various regulations for the use of its EBT cards. The cards can be used for food items, for example, but not cigarettes, alcohol or prepared, hot food items, said Regan Hopper, spokeswoman for the Food and Nutrition Service of the Gainesville Police investigate convenient store fraud Aundre Larrow / Alligator Staff JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer UF administrators are considering abandoning block tuition, and an announcement could come as soon as Tuesday. Under block tuition, the university dents regardless of the number of credits taken. Currently, students pay by the credit hour. UF Provost Joe Glover said recent graduation rates factored into the decision to reconsider the controversial measure. For students who entered UF in 2006, the four-year graduation rate was 64 percent, a jump from 58 percent for students who entered in 2005. Glover said he is in discussion with UF President Bernie Machen about the issue. [Machen] has told me hes thinking about taking it off the table, Glover said. Student Body President Ben Meyers, along with Student Government and student activist groups, opposes the measure. Meyers said Machen has been very receptive to Meyers concerns, and he hopes the proposal will be pulled Tuesday at a conference call of UFs Board of Trustees. Based upon our conversations, I would think that the proposal would be pulled, Meyers said. The UF Board of Trustees approved a block tuition proposal in December that delayed implementation until December 2012, pending approval from the Board of Governors, the state university systems highest governing body. The proposal was never sent to the higher board.

ABOUT 1,200 SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN COLLECTED. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterWhen students vote in Student Government elections on Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, they will get the chance to voice their opinions on UFs recent tuition hike. Students for a Democratic Society put the referendum question on the ballot in hopes of rallying students to speak out against the 15 percent increase, said SDS member Chrisley Carpio. A referendum question gauges student opinion on an issue. The UF Board of Trustees unanimously passed the tuition hike in June. State legislators voted in the spring for an 8 percent increase and allowed individual universities to raise their tuition up to an additional 7 percent. Since Monday, SDS members have collected about 1,200 student signatures on Tur lington Plaza. SDS members will also hold an extended campaign to protest the tuition increase. Carpio said the organization is looking to hold a rally around Sept. 17. She said the group plans to demand a meeting with administrators to discuss alternative ways of making up She said that many students scholarships are decreasing and that students are having to work harder to make ends meet.

About 120 cadets from UF, Santa Fe College, St. Leo University and College of Central Florida attended the event on Flavet Field, according to Cadet Lt. Col. Eric Strnad, a UF criminology senior. Cadets from Santa Fe, St. Leo and CF participated in all of UF ROTCs Thursday afternoon labs, Strnad said. Cadets climbed a rock wall and exwere left unloaded per campus regulations. They also learned about air defense artillery and checked out Humvees and a helicopter. Strnad said ROTC holds the event every year to introduce new cadets to ROTC and smaller programs within it, such as Raiders and Ranger Challenge, two teams of cadets that participate in military skills competitions against other ROTC programs. Members of Gator Guard Drill Team, Raiders and Ranger Challenge demonstrated their skills to the new cadets. Were basically showing off everything we can do, Strnad said. The goal is to make new students aware that the ROTC program is more than just a class. These groups are more than groups, he said. Theyre almost fraternal. Cadet 2nd Lt. Matthew Runnels said he probably would not have been able to complete college without the support of the ROTC program. Now a senior majoring in geography, he said he joined ROTC as a freshman for the experience. I never would have been skydiving; I never would have repelled out of a helicopter if not for the Army, he said.STUDENT LIFE

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Check your chocolateAs another Halloween approaches and parents in the Gainesville area think about buying chocolate treats for children, here is something to consider: The chocolate you buy could be tainted with child labor. Sept. 19 marks the 10-year anniversary of the signing of the Harkin-Engel Protocol an agreement by the countrys largest chocolate companies to put an end to forced child labor on cocoa farms in West Africa by 2005. Ten years later, not enough progress has been made. Hundreds of thousands of children are still forced to work under abusive conditions for long hours on cocoa farms in West Africa while others are victims The largest chocolate manufacturer in the U.S., Hershey, lags behind its competitors in eliminating these abuses from its cocoa supply chain. Whats more, Hershey has been exploiting student guest workers here in the U.S. in one of its packing facilities, according to activist organizations like change.org. Some of Hersheys competitors, including Mars and Nestle, have committed to start sourcing cocoa that is independently rights standards. I urge Hershey the most iconic chocolate company in the U.S. to protect workers from bean to bar and certify its chocolate as Fair Trade. Hopefully, this measure will ensure that forced child labor is removed from its chocolate bars, its Kisses and its peanut butter cups. In the meantime, Ill be handchocolate to my trick-or-treaters this Halloween. Cindy Campbell Gainesville residentLetters to the EditorT smart decision. At the time, I had just moved to Gainesville from our farm in New York. I was attending a private college in Buffalo where I studied advertising and meat The Malcom Randall VA Medical Center. When she announced the news to the family, I thought, yeah, shorts all year round. I applied to UF and Santa Fe College and got into both, and because the College of Journalism and Communications was and still is renowned, I was thrilled to become a Florida Gator. I had the time of my life here, working as the photo editor of the Alligator and then as a photo intern at the Gainesville Sun. have worked as a photo intern at the Ann Arbor News and various Syracuse newspapers. After freelancing in Denver, I landed a job designing the Oakland Tribune. Later, I became a high school teacher. You have met those people who lived here a long time ago and have come back to roost thats me, too. I cant quite explain how or why we come back, but I once wrote a feature about homing pigeons and their innate ability to return to the place where they were born. I wasnt really born in Gainesville, but I certainly discovered who I am here. So now that I am home to roost, I thought I would share my top 10 reasons why its so cool to be older, wiser and back in school:§ The youngsters give up their seats for me on the bus.§ Sneaky smokers sitting in the outdoor amphitheater by the Reitz Union think I work here so when they see me, they run and hide. Then, I yell out, Sir, this is a tobacco-free campus, and they run faster. § Students whom I dont know randomly wave at me because they miss their moms.§ I get all of my professors jokes.§ show at the Reitz Union movie theater. § My mortgage payment is less than the rent for one room in a four-bedroom condo at an all-inclusive apartment complex. § The trees next to the French Fries have grown 20 feet taller since I graduated. Now, it doesnt look out of place at all. § I can sit in the alumni or the student section at football games. § No more relying on any rascally library coding system to do my research, but I could if we lost electricity.§ Finally, I can still publish work in the Alligator.

Sophomore setter Chanel Brown is impressing coaches and teammates alike in her second year. See Story, Page 20. UF PLAYS FAU AT 7 P.M. SATURDAY IN THE SWAMP. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Linebacker Jon Bostic and the rest of the Gators dont care about their preseason No. 23 ranking, nor are they concerned about outsiders looking down on them following a disappointing season a year ago. A lot of people from everywhere are overlooking us, Bostic said. Everyones kind of like, The forgotten Gators. It doesnt bother us at all. Thats how were trying to look at it. Bostic, a junior, and his teammates feel slighted. After enduring a trying season in 2010, the Gators dealt with an overwhelming offseason. They had to adjust to a new head coach, an overhauled staff, revamped offensive and defensive schemes, the transfer of their best player and cope with the stigma of an 8-5 season. But when Florida takes the Florida Atlantic in coach Will Muschamps debut, all of that will be behind the new-look Gators. Theres a lot of things that went wrong last year, but this is another year, Bostic said. A lot of people have changed what we did in the offseason, getting more focused for these games this year. However, several players admitted this week all the preseason talk of change and fresh starts means nothing to the Gators if they struggle out of the gate like they did last season. With a preseason No. 4 ranking in 2010, expectations were high for a Florida team that made back-to-back Southeastern Conference title game appearances and was two seasons removed from hoisting the BCS Championship trophy in Miami.Like the Gators, this week is our a young, inexperienced group with a little bit of upside. Everyone has been working hard all month, and we feel like were hitting our stride. But until you actually enter the arena and compete, you still have doubt. The arena, of course, is the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column. The competition? Who can do the best. The reward? Well, being the champ has always been a good icebreaker at Midtown. To kick off the season, we let two of our writers debate the GeorgiaBoise State game. Here we go. Boise State (-3) will eat all the Kibbles N Bits on Saturday because Theres a reason the Bulldogs experienced a mass exodus during the offseason: Youd have to be Ray Charles to not see Georgia isnt what it once was. The dynamic duo of Matt Stafford and A.J. Green couldnt even save coach Mark Richt from falling to the proverbial hot seat. Now, UGA is counting on a crop of inexperienced running backs since Washaun Ealey jumped off the sink to help bolster an offense led by quarterback Aaron Murray. While Murray may turn out to be the best passer in the Southeastern Confer ence, hell still need that running game to create space for the receivers and get the eighth man out of the box. And thats where it gets ugly for Georgia. Only one back (Richard Chunks Samuel) has starting experience, and the rest are extremely raw. Sprinkle in Boises run-defense its a done deal. Get out the shock collar because the Dawgs will not be Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: 7 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPNU/WRUF AM850 SEE PICKSS, pP AGE 15AAlligator File PhotoFlorida linebacker Jon Bostic said people are overlooking the Gators this season after an 8-5 record last year. Bostic said the Gators must avoid another slow start to prove the doubters wrong. Forgotten Gators ready for opener against FAU UF SSOCCEER JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer After a record four-game road trip to begin the 2011 season, Florida plays its home opener tonight against Texas Tech at home. However, the Gators focus is not on the Red Raiders its on themselves. Were pretty much focused on professing what we are doing as a team, said junior in on that and make sure we are doing the right things, we can make sure that Texas Tech, no matter what they throw at us, its something we can handle. The No. 13 Gators (3-1), despite their solid start to the season, are not resting on their laurels as they head into their home opener. Rather than dissecting the Red Raiders, the Gators have focused their energy this week on executing the game plan and addressing areas of their performance that did not meet their season. The Gators split their two games in Knoxville, Tenn., at last weekends First Lady Vol Classic with a 3-2 win against Texas A&M and a 2-0 loss to No. 6 UCLA. While Florida head coach Becky Burleigh said there were positives to take away from the Gators weekend in Tennessee, she believes the games revealed areas in which her team still needs to make improvements. turnovers and the Gators defensive play as a team, not necessarily their back line. Gators two games, while Texas A&M launched 21 and UCLA attempted 19. To this point we have kind of focused more Avant.

But the Gators limped through their opener against Miami (Ohio) as the offense struggled, setting the tone for a lackluster year. There were errant snaps, Florida fumbled the ball eight times, and a passing offense that came in with high hopes managed a meager 113 yards. It just killed the momentum, quarterback John Brantley said. It just kind of sucked the wind out of us, I guess you could say. If you have good plays and something like that happens, it just kind of sucks the wind out of us. With the team preparing for Saturdays season opener throughout fall camp, the Gators know what they need to do to prevent a similar stumble out of the gates. Muschamp has preached turnover margin, and sophomore Trey Burton said the team is looking to limit turnovers as well as penalties, and develop a good tempo in the debut of Charlie Weis offense. Its real important to step on and just keep going, Brantley said. Dont let off. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org. 14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 CROSS COUNTRY OPENS SLATE TODAY. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer and unexpected change, coach Todd Morgan knew he needed to challenge his runners as soon as they hit campus. shaken up their schedule and will step out on the with the Western Carolina Invitational today in Cullowhee, N.C. Both squads will run a short, tune-up style race, featuring a two-mile run at 6:30 p.m. for the women, followed immediately by a mens 5k race. Along with host Western Carolina, three other unranked teams UNC-Asheville, North Greenville and Warren Wilson will be competing against Florida. Coach (Mike) Holloway and I talked about running a little earlier to generate more focus and just preparation over the summer months, knowing that alright, you report back and pretty quickly youre going to be lining up and putting a uniform on, Morgan said. out of eligibility, the No. 22 womens team looks to lean heavily on resurgent senior Genevieve LaCaze and sophomore Cory McGee for leadership in the early meets. The returning duo is coming off a stellar track record for the womens steeplechase and McGee was honored as the 2011 Southeastern Conference Womens Indoor Freshman Runner of the Year. Were actually really lucky for Cory and I to have that kind of [track season] to get us rolling for fall, LaCaze said. We didnt get to have Charlotte in the track season last year, so it was a little bit of a transition for us. The No. 26 mens team is also looking to regroup after former UF runner Dumisane Hlaselo was kicked off the team for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in June. Last season, the South African native was the only mens runner to qualify for the NCAA Championship. With the loss of their dominant runner, senior Josh Izewski said the squads chemistry and expecproach. With everyone working together like that, like not one person whos trying to be it, you know its going to be better for when were out there and actually on the course and were not worrying about Oh, whos going to beat who?

Now is when we are starting to work on the defensive part of things. Avant said UF has placed a heavy emphasis on one-on-one defense in practice this week. She believes that if the Gators execute their defense in all of their formations, they can neutralize any Red Raiders attack. While the Floridas focal point this week has been sharpening their defensive play, Burleigh said that doesnt mean they are taking Texas Tech lightly. We dont take anybody for granted by game, and we need to defend our turf. tonight at Pressly Stadium, they will get to speak with a couple of former Gators who have some recent big-game experience of their own. Heather Mitts and Abby Wambach, both of whom are less than two months removed from their FIFA Womens World Cup Final appearance with the U.S. womens national team, will speak with the Gators prior to the game and sign autographs for fans after. Being able to get any sort of advice and Barney said. BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Chanel Brown busted into college volleyShe was a Southeastern Conference AllFreshman team selection, Floridas primary setter and the team leader in assists per set. But what gets overlooked is Brown was enduring a major learning process. Coming out of high school as one of the nations top outside hitters, the 5-foot-9 sophomore had never been a setter before. A very good athlete with a lot of tools, coach Mary Wise said. that position. Redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe got plenty of opportunities to watch Browns play last season while sidelined with a broken bone in her ankle. She described her teammate as an energetic and talented playAfter an offseason of long hours in the gym, Unroe insists Brown is much improved. This year shes very sure of herself and taking coaching a lot better, Unroe said. Browns freshman year was a challenge, although her stats might not show it. Coming in your freshman year, youre just learning the whole aspect of the game and how fast paced it is, but now were in a rhythm and just letting the offense come naturally, Brown said. Specializing in assists, Brown tends to fall under the radar while powerful hitters like Kelly Murphy, Stephanie Ferrell and Kristy Jaeckel soak up the attention. After opening the season with 54 assists in three proved in connecting with the Gators more celebrated attackers. said. Shes taken a ton of reps setting the ball. She was in here at noon [Thursday] taking extra reps. While the season has opened with success, Brown and her teammates have the same goal a national championship for a team that has repeatedly failed to take that next step.
