TOM GREEN Alligator Sports EditorLinebacker Jon Bostic watched from the sidelines in disbelief, and all left tackle Xavier Nixon saw were clumps of dirt kickerupted in The Swamp. Chris Rainey spun past a defendhe would be stopped for a loss, and back streaked down the left sideline and into the end zone. It was the second of Raineys three touchdowns in Floridas season-opening 41-3 win against Florida Atlantic last week, and one speedster Jeff Demps on the night all-purpose yards. Theyre versatile players, Nixon said. They just make things happen and its great to see them together in tandem to get touches. Its just a beautiful thing. The display set the tone for Floridas offense, and for the two senior running backs, who have a chance ers at Florida since Ciatrick Fason in and Rainey would also become the yards in the same season. Shifting Gears The days of the spread-option are gone, and Rainey couldnt be happier. Throughout their Florida careers, Demps and Rainey played in Urban Meyers spread offense, where they took handoffs or pitches and lined up next to the quarterback in the a pro-style attack under offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, and the team is running what Demps called fense. They line up two yards deeper in the new system, making it easier to Its the best thing that ever happened to me, Rainey said. The whole offense is made for us, so Im just glad it happened. Rainey was part of a pro-style offense at Lakeland High, where he downs as a senior and helped lead the Dreadnaughts to three consecutive state championships. Were in an offense I love, and I cant wait to perform, Rainey said during fall camp. He and Demps didnt have to wait long, as the changing of the guard was evident just one game into the season. Although Weis said Florida kept the offense relatively vanilla for the opener, his philosophy of establishing the run early and often was on display against Florida Atlantic last Saturday. The twosome ran 23 times for reached the century mark for the Everything starts with the run game, Weis said. Its obvious weve got a couple of dynamic guys. But their impact on offense went beyond carrying the ball. Along with the lofty rushing toas Rainey led the team with six reBoth also made key contributions on special teams. Rainey scooped up a blocked punt and brought it back for a touchdown, and Demps returned the opening kickoff to the house only to have it called back due to a holding penalty. I tried to forewarn you of what I expected, and what I expected was basically what you saw, Weis said. Theyre both exceptional football players.Speed KillsWeis called Demps and Rainey the two fastest players he has ever coached at any level. plished and seen in his 32-year coaching career which includes 16 seasons in the NFL and four Super Bowl rings when he makes that kind of claim, people tend to listen. Everyone who comes in all my boys from the other level, I say the same thing to them, Weis said. I say, Youve never seen anything like this. I dont know if they can play dead, but I know they can run. Demps is a world-class sprinter who reportedly turned down a lucrative professional track contract to return to Florida for his senior season. In March, he ran a 6.55 in the school record and claim the NCAA championship, and he has run the multiple occasions. Rainey also ran track when he All-America honors as a freshman NCAA Outdoor Championships. speed on the track translates to speed on the turf, where they have routinely shown the ability to break off what coach Will Muschamp calls yards and receptions longer than Theyre huge for this team, redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley said. Two of the fastest probably the two fastest running backs in the country. Each claims to be faster than the other, but Demps concedes that he likes to bowl through and outrun defenders while Rainey is the shiftier, more elusive back. Regardless of who may be faster, both should expect to touch the ball Theyll both be out there a whole bunch, Weis said recently. Theyll be tired after games. Theyll both be tired. Staying on their feet The biggest hurdle both backs full season. Each has dealt with injuries or Florida. was derailed after four games when he sustained a shoulder injury, and year when Demps sprained his left foot against Tennessee and Rainey was arrested and subsequently suspended by Meyer. Demps hurt one of his wheels after he carried the ball 26 times against the Volunteers. He missed time and was hampered by the sprain for the remainder of the season. It was frustrating, Demps said. Coach Meyer would come by me every week and say, You got ten carries in you this week? and I would say, Yes coach. Just being me, Im a competitor. But deep down, I dont think I was physically ready. But Demps said there is no lingering pain and he is ready to take on a full load, and a full season. So is Rainey, who said he has matured over the last year and has learned to think before he acts. Still, Weis said concerns remain about the duos stamina and the utilizing them enough, but not too much. Neither has recorded more than rushing mark during his career. But, with a steady rotation in the and healthy, Rainey and Demps could eclipse those marks and go duo in Florida history. Im a big fan of Demps and Rainey, Weis said. Im not used to having two guys that are that fast and that quick. Its a very unusual quality, but the best part about it to me is that theyre very close to being the same guy.

MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Staff Writer M embers of Christian Campus House became homeless when developers bought the off-campus student organizations lot the day before Christmas Eve. The company is using the space to build a parking garage. Since then, the members of Christian Campus House congregate on UFs Plaza of the Americas weekly to play volleyball and hang out with friends. Christian Campus House sold its land to the north of University Avenue to RLR1 LLC, the Ohio-based executive group building The Stadium Club. The eight-story apartment complex is on the corner of Fletcher Drive and University Avenue. The company plans to use the plot to build a six-story parking garage to complement its complex. With their building sold in December and razed in April, members of the Christian Campus House have been forced to adapt. Kelly Adams, a psychology junior and president of the organization, said the group has grown by about 15 people in the last semester to its current count of about 35 members. In addition to the $700,000 sale of Christian Campus Houses lot, the owners of The Stadium Club donated enough money for the organization to build a new center and a plot of land to build on at 1808 NW First Ave. Construction of the new center is schedsaid. Representatives of the company did not return phone calls for comment by press time. Campus minister Bob Gailey said he couldnt divulge donation amounts but said Never Forget: Ten Years Later.

EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer The Harn Museum has set an opening date for its new, 26,000-squarefoot Asian art wing. The wing, set to open March 31, has been in construction since last spring. The new wing will hold 2,000 pieces of Asian artwork that are currently in the museums permanent collection on a rotating viewing schedule. The galleries in the wing will be dedicated to artwork from China, India, Japan, Korea, and South and Southeast Asia. The David A. Cofrin wing will also feature two Asian-inspired gardens David A. Cofrin and his wife, Mary Ann, gave the museum a $10 million contribution to support the expansion. Tami Wroath, spokeswoman for the Harn Museum, said construction on the new wing of the building should be completed by October or November, but the entire exhibit wont be ready for the public until the end of March. Museum members will get a sneak preview of the exhibit the night before it opens to the public, Wroath said. She said the museum is also working to plan special activities for the Asian wings grand opening that may be incorporated into the Harns Museum Nights program so students will also be able to get a preview of the new expansion.

The NCAA released a statement Thursday detailing its ruling on Floyd, who was deemed ineligible by Florida prior to the teams season opener against Florida Atlantic last weekend. Im angered, disgusted and extremely disappointed that Sharrif will have to miss two games, Muschamp said in an impassioned statement released Thursday night.

MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterUF students Maria Fitzgerald and Molly Jansen were four days into their American Red Cross internships when they were told to pack their bags and head to Maryland. Hurricane Irene had hit the East Coast hard, and people who were left ily photo albums needed their help. Fitzgerald and Jansen are emergency services interns with the North Central Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross, said Casey Schmelz, emergency services manager for the chapter. Interns must be ready to be deployed for local and national relief services a caveat that quickly became reality for the UF seniors. I think anybody that can take the time to commit themselves to a community that they arent a part of [and] that they know nothing of is some[one] very remarkable, Schmelz said. The women arent taking any courses this semester but are instead demic requirement for their health education and behavior majors, Fitzgerald said. They have been on the road for about two weeks. Theyve helped people in towns throughout Maryland and New York, including Baltimore and Westchester, N.Y. Fitzgerald saw the back half of a a building that had been a home to nine people before Hurricane Irene struck. One woman she met seemed to remain strong despite her tough circumstances until Fitzgerald handed her stuffed Mickey Mouse toys, donated to the Red Cross by Disney, to give to her children. Then she cried. The woman had acted like evher crumble. It really hits home, Fitzgerald said. Jansen has dealt with the occasional person who seems mentally unstable including one man who told her that actor Macaulay Culkin was murdered in his backyard but said she was impacted by many of the people she met who were trying to stay positive despite their situations. One woman told her that the changing the topography of the landscape. Her uplifting attitude impressed Jansen, who met families whose mobile homes had been destroyed and whose school yearbooks and photo ing. Jansen had never done relief work before but had always wanted to. Its always been in my blood, but Ive never really had the oppor tunity to do it [before], she said. Jansen should be returning to Florida in one week, and Fitzgerald is set to return in about two weeks. That isnt guaranteed, however, because work is constantly arising that requires the help of Red Cross volunteers and interns, Fitzgerald said. The whirlwind workdays are worth it for Jansen. Its kind of a rush, she said. This was the sweetest internship ever.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorMeat-Free Mondays applaudedMercy For Animals commends UF for implementing Meat-Free Mondays in both of its dining halls to help conserve the environment, promote healthy eating and protect farmed animals from needless cruelty. While it is great that UF is offering a robust vegetarian menu on Mondays, it would be even better if the univer sitys Meat-Free Mondays program was entirely meat-free if only for one day a week. Just last month, the Environmental Working Group released The Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health, encouraging Americans to eat less meat and cheese. Last year, the United Nations declared that a global shift away from meat-based diets is vital to save the world from the most devastating impacts of climate change. Two years earlier, the Pew Charitable Trusts found that industrial animal agriculture presents an unacceptable level of risk to public health and damage to the environment, as well as unnecessary harm to the animals we raise for food. How do our food choices affect climate change? Animal way to produce food for the growing human population. It pollutes our environment and consumes huge amounts of water, grain, petroleum, pesticides and drugs. Cutting back or eliminating consumption of animal products not only helps the environment and lowers the risk of serious health problems, such as obesity, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancers, but it also helps put an end to the unnecessary suffering of farmed animals. Since 2003, dozens of colleges, high schools, cities, restaurants, chefs, celebrities, and magazines have adopted Meatless Mondays to reduce animal suffering, combat global warming and promote healthy eating. UF has taken a big step in the right direction by offering vegetarian meals in honor of Meat-Free Mondays. We encourage the university to take it just a step further by going completely meat-free on Mondays. Eddie Garza New York Campaign Coordinator, Mercy For Animals Gainesville, there is a blight upon you. There is a scourge upon us. I am writing of a crime most injurious and offensive. Indeed, I am writing today to condemn the practice of illegal advertising. Perhaps you have seen these abominations along Archer and Old Archer roads (theres an Old Archer?). You shall mark the red and the blue, the furious horizonlivery company because of the frequency of its offenses. Along this particular road, Street, there are, at my count, at least four advertisements placed in the median or alongside public roads. There are other ads, though: buyers of criminals stuck to telephone poles, too an awful omen for the justice that will eventually befall them. Are a few advertisements on the side of the road as serious as I claim? Of course not. The corporate pizza giants signs are not that unsightly though I think they are disgusting. And four signs (in a short span of road) have a relatively small environmental impact, assuming they are ever collected most likely by Code Enforcement on taxpayers dime. But there is a larger issue underlying my complaints: that of the privatization of public space. A companys use of public land for advertising must be viewed as theft, and as citizens we must be vigilant. I suppose it may be tempting to extend my eyesore argument to the Crossing one enjoyed the exhibit. Regardless, there is an absolutely necessary difference: One act was a public use of public (and private) lands, the other an unauthorized use of public lands for commercial interests. Crossing Paths was funded in part by the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, a publicly funded group. Public space is for public use. Had the pizza company in question commissioned prices or open positions, I would still feel the same: Public space is for public use. I will not dare to compare a roadside or median to Yellowstone or to even a lesser deity such as the Ocala National Forest. But those spaces we hold in common must be protected as such. When you see a painted advertisement Street (you know the developers; at least you will soon), remember my words. Regard these guerrilla marketers as they are, insurgents attacking that which is yours and mine. Ryan Fenton graduated from UF with a degree in English.Public land no good for adsI didnt know it would be the last photo I would ever take of the Twin Towers. On a balmy day in August 2001, I ran around Manhattan taking in the sights as I did once or twice a year while visiting my then-father-in-law. The twin structures were amazing and strong and sent a message that was modern, in contrast to the older sights we associate with New York such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. When I returned home from that trip, I had the photos printed and placed them into a cumulative New-York-themed photo album that held every photo I had taken in my nine years of marriage and trips to the Big Apple. A few days after I returned home to California, my then-husband told me he didnt want to be married anymore. I moved out and wasnt sure what to do with those albums that had proved our time together. So I placed them in storage and didnt look at them until I was ready. I received a call on Sept. 11, 2001, from my He was distraught, and I couldnt understand on the television, and I saw it all playing out. I couldnt calm him down because I didnt know what to say. It was more than a year after my divorce packing those photo albums. I opened them and searched for the last set of photos I took in New York. I knew I would return to New York City again one day, and that opportunity came in 2009 with an invitation to attend the commissioning of the U.S.S. New York LP-21 on Nov. 7, 2009. I was given access to this event because my Marine nephew had been invited to represent his squadron on the ship. The ship carried in its hull 7.5 tons of steel from the World Trade Center Twin Towers and the message, Strength I jumped at the chance to gear up with my 30 pounds of cameras and lenses. When the press corps from The New York Times, Associated Press, each branch of the military, and the NYPD raised their cameras, I was proud to squeeze into the pack and raise mine along with them. the attacks wept all around me. The admiral of the Navy, with Hillary Clinton standing by his side, declared to his crew, Sailors, go get your ship. And hundreds of sailors ran past me on a red carpet. They headed to the next pier where the U.S.S. New York waited for them to claim her. It was the most patriotic moment I had ever covered in my career. I welled up and couldnt seem to focus for a few minutes as I ran to catch up with the crew to meet them on the ship. I stopped during my mad dash just for a second and grabbed a few frames of former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani who played a crucial role in guiding the city through its grieving process. He gave me a ing the story. The towers have become a symbol of moving forward for me. Years later, I have moved on and am happily remarried.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 IT SELL CHALLAH BREAD EVERY FRIDAY. MINA RADMANAlligator WriterOn the Plaza of the Americas on Friday mornings, students can donate money to help relieve hunger and enjoy freshly baked pieces of challah bread. Challah for Hunger, a national organization that began its UF chapter two years ago, sells loaves of bread each week as a fundraiser for the American Jewish World Service, a national organization that provides aid to the genocide relief in Darfur. Last years recipient was the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. Student volunteers bake the bread from scratch each Thursday, which is sold Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Challah bread, commonly known as egg bread, is a Jewish recipe made primarily of eggs, braided, baked and usually topped with sesame seeds and raisins. Jewish families have been making this for 3,000 years, said Brenda Wolnerman, an expert challah baker and the Hillel rabbis wife. It takes a full day to prepare and bake the bread. At 11 a.m. on Thursdays, students gather at Hillel to mix the ingredients, which oil, eggs and either sugar or honey. Its a personal preference between honey and sugar, said Jessica Davis, the Jewish student life coordinator. But it bakes better with sugar. Challah for Hunger bakes about three batches of bread each week, which is the equivalent of 40 loaves. After mixing the ingredients this week, Davis and Jennifer Szlasa, a chemical engineering junior, attempted to smooth out the dough. You just need to beat the crap out of it, Szlasa said. The dough is placed in a bowl and left to rise throughout the afternoon. Students return at 6 p.m. to braid and bake the bread. The toppings are added as the bread is separated and braided. The most popular toppings include cinnamon sugar and chocolate chip. Weve had people get really angry at us when weve sold out of the chocolate chip, Davis said. It takes about an hour to bake the bread, which is then cut into pieces and packaged. The organization accepts donations for each package of bread and usually asks for $3 to $4 per piece. Weve had a real good presence on campus and the group gets larger as the weeks go on, Davis said.

MELINDA CARSTENSENAlligator Staff WriterOnce each year around 8:45 a.m., Thomas Panevino watches the clock and waits. It does not matter where he is or what he is doing. He could be at his apartment in Gainesville, where hes a student studying English at UF. Or he could be in Boca Raton, Fla., a place hes called home since 2004. All that matters is the moment when the small hand moves from 45 to 46. This is when he presses the phone to his ear and talks with his mother. Ten years ago, at 8:46 a.m. on a Tuesday in September when members of the terror airplane into one of the Twin Towers Panevino was in his seventh-grade Spanish class in New York City, less than a mile from the World Trade Center. It was the second day of school, and Panevino, now 21, remembers exactly how the morning unfolded. He and his classmates pressed their faces to the window, watching bers his middle school principal coming over the intercom, trying to pacify teachers and students by saying there had been an electrical accident. Panevino remembers his father, who was getting breakfast at Pick A Bagel near the his class to pick him up after the airplane crashed. He remembers the roaring sound of the air He remembers the smoke, the ash, the shower of burning white paper falling like confetti from the sky. He remembers feeling numb. When 8:46 a.m. rolls around each year on 9/11, Panevino calls his mother, an interior designer who used to get coffee at the World Trade Center each morning with a friend. From the morning of Sept. 11 to the morning of Sept. 12, 2001, Panevino and his father, who worked as a graphic designer for LOreal, didnt hear from her. When recounting that day, Panevino is obHes told the story before, but the words come out slow, as if hes crawling through the memories. Panevino denounces the medias prepackaged 9/11 story and the recycled iconic photos of the Twin Towers the ones with the still-standing towers and the single air To him, all of the news stations tell the same story: Planes hit, buildings come down, people are sad, he says. Half the things we saw those things probably couldnt be seen on TV. around his feet. He walked by the unusually silent doorman at his familys apartment, which was across the street from the World Trade Center, and picked up his poodle, Eddie. His father left a note for his wife. I have Thomas. Were OK. That day, Panevino lost everything. Gone City, which he found burned and gutted a few months after the attacks, along with his familys black Jeep. Some of his friends never came home. Their families later left New York. Today, he and his family have the Jeeps crinkled license plate and the note to his mother kept away in a cardboard box, and he keeps in touch with his friends from New York. ter. His father shielded him from ash as they crammed into a 10-person bathroom with 40 other people at a park at the tip of the Manhattan a park where he used to play as a child. He remembers sticking his hand into Eddies carrier to make sure the 6-pound dog could still breathe among all the ash and smoke. He felt the warm lick of Eddies tongue, and relief washed over him. The only child among adults, he rememabout eight people with about 30 people. He remembers the engine almost died, and the tail end of the boat dragged beneath the sur Jersey City. When he and his father boarded a bus to go stay with a friend, Panevino made the same call hundreds of times. The next day, the phone lines opened. His town Manhattan. Panevinos words dont drip with bitter ness. The people who attacked I could very easily hate them, he says. They blew up my home and all that. Over the past 10 years, he says, some U.S. media outlets have perpetuated a negative image of the Middle East, and as a result, a new type of racism has surfaced. do bad, he says. [The media] want to make masses of people representative of a small group of crazy people thats the only good thing of being there, really, is I didnt get that He met Jai Mirchandani, one of his friends from New York, when they were both about 6 months old. Their mothers walked them around in strollers in Battery Park City. Mirchandani, who today studies international business at George Washington Univer sity, says Panevino holding a particular race accountable for the attacks would be under mining what his principles stand for. Although Panevino doesnt consider himself religious, he was always curious to learn more about Mirchandanis Indian culture. When my parents would have the [traditional Hindu] Diwali festival, Thomas would of the holiday itself trying to understand what that means, Mirchandani says. After 9/11, Mirchandanis mother warned him not to walk around the city alone. At that point, it wasnt uncommon for people who It struck me very quickly, Mirchandani says. As a child, you dont experience a lot of racism especially in New York. Panevino says hes looked at everyday life differently over the past 10 years. After that day, theres, like, nothing to worry about. This class, this test it means nothing. The people who were in that tower, they would wish for my problems. Life is good. Sarah Deatherage, one of Panevinos friends at UF, says he has the ability to turn trivial problems upside down and make them funny. know, says Deatherage, a third-year psycholin the world in another way that other people dont. He tells me he thinks about [9/11] every day, Detherage says. And its kind of saddening because down here in Florida we dont think about it every day, and its not part of our lives. And we forget and he doesnt. Growing up in Battery Park City, Panevino remembers the World Trade Center being the center of everything. I have home videos of me learning to walk in the World Trade Center, he says. I could still walk through there with my eyes closed. Panevino accepts the new New York, reand the hordes of tourists that now visit Ground Zero. But he doesnt want to move back. That time of my life is done, he says. Its a whole lifestyle that I understand but I dont want to be a part of anymore. After graduation in Spring 2012, he plans to attend graduate school for international communication and eventually work for a technology company. His career aspirations and his life experiences, he says, are directly related. Those connections are what keep us human, and keep us real, and keep us away from a life that they want to take away, he says. Hes eager to visit and see how the rebuilding process of the World Trade Center the Freedom Tower is coming along. it was that Tuesday morning, he says. As for the 10-year anniversary of the attacks, hes looking forward to getting through the checkpoint. Im gonna call my mom, he says. Its always a hard day. I want to be at Ground Zero. You want to return and be as close to that spot as you can, but you cant. Its something Ive thought a lot about after, but now its something I accept, Panevino says. Its not something thats so far into me now. Death was that day. Once you learn to accept that, you can start living.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Stay Informed on GamedayFollow the alligatorSports football writers on Twitter Saturday for in-game updates from the game: @tomas_verde, @gregluca, @tyler__jett, @wattmattsMore Stories Online at alligatorSports.org UFs soccer, mens and womens cross country and womens golf teams are all in action this weekend. The Gators soccer team plays FSU tonight at 7 p.m. Check the website this weekend for daily updates.Gators forward Erik Murphy was reinstated on Thursday after being See Story, Page 24. MATT WATTS Above all else, one thing stands out from last Saturdays win against Florida Atlantic. Not the 468 yards of total offense. Not Chris Raineys electric which allowed a mere 137 yards. Not even Jelani Jenkins thunder ous hit on FAU receiver Willie Floyd. Turnovers. John Brantley threw an inter a second on a poor throw into triple coverage in the end zone. Freshman backup Jeff Driskel pass attempt. When you have a minus-3 turnover ratio for the game, usually youre going to lose, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said Tuesday. Thats one of our points of emphasis, not just with John Brantley, but with the whole offense. Weis also pointed to three other near giveaways, including the snap from center Jonotthan Har rison that sailed over Brantleys head and brought back painful memories from a season ago. Coach Will Muschamp has repeatedly harped on the impor tance of turnover margin, and admitted that the Gators minus-3 mark simply will not get it done. We can talk about all the other stats you want to talk about, those are the two critical ones: big-play ratio and turnovers, he said Monday. Its a huge concern of taking care of the ball offensively. Not only will the Gators need to better protect the rock against UAB on Saturday night at 7, theyll also need to make some things happen on defense. The Blazers return a potent spreadoffense attack that went for more games a year ago. UFs defense limited Alfred Morris to 16 yards on 14 carries last week, but Florida couldnt force a giveaway. Jenkins dropped an easy interception that likely would have resulted in a pick-six the Gators best opportunity for a turnover. Even though we held them to limited rushing yards and limited passing yards, [turnovers are] one thing we stress every game, Bostic said. We need at least three turnovers a game. Who knew college footballs story arc would take such a mundane turn? Dont get us wrong; we still love the game. We love watching College GameDay while recovering from hangovers. We love broing out, playing cornhole and heckling fans from other schools during afternoon tailgates. We love seeing Utah State upset the defending national champs in week one. (Wait, what?) But whats with those sitcom-writing hacks hijacking our sports storyline? Were tired of this will-they, wont-they drama unfolding with Texas A&M. Seriously, other Big 12 teams, can you just step aside and let this happen? But rest assured, fans. We here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column are only focused on what you why we let a pair of writers debate the game between Missouri (of the Big 12 or the SEC or the Big Ten, depending on when you read this) and Arizona State (from the Pac-12 or 14 or 16 or 32). Lets get it on. Mizzou (+7.5) will keep hope alive tonight because Friday nights belong to teams with clear eyes and full hearts, and the TiQuarterback James Franklin is the black Matt Saracen of the Midwest, minus the whole sleeping with the coachs daughter thing. He is a creative sophomore who likes to scramble. He is being asked to replace the golden boy sooner than expected. The whole town doubts he can be a leader. Before tonights game, with pressure mounting, Gary Pinkel will channel his inner Eric Taylor and deliver a poetic, chilling speech as wistful indie music plays in the background: Dont you ever forget this: you should feel real proud. This is all yours for the taking. It depends on how much you want it.Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: 7 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: FOX Sports Florida / SEE PICKS, P AGE 15 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator S taffFlorida linebacker Jelani Jenkins (3) dropped a near interception against FAU on Saturday, and the Gators posted a minus-3 turnover margin despite handily beating the Owls 41-3. Gators must win turnover battle BRYAN HOLT Kristy Jaeckel knows theres no time for wasted chances. As a senior who has lost in the NCAA sons of her college volleyball career, she can summarize the new feeling within her in one word. Maybe theres more urgency to get things done, she said. That urgency was a large part of this past summer, which saw all of Floridas volleyball team stay in Gainesville and work on what it felt was the biggest reason for last years We were really focused on our defense as a unit, Jaeckel said. We were trying to clean things up and design and designate whos taking what. Although no one will confuse the 6-foot-2 outside hitter for a defensive specialist, teammates insist Jaeckel has put a new emphasis on defense this season. They hope that continues when the No. 7 Gators face their stiffest competition of the young season at 11 p.m. against No. 10 Texas in the Nike Big Four Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. Shes been working really hard on defense, fellow senior Kelly Murphy said. Shes in the back making defensive plays and increasing her range and touching a lot of balls. Through seven games, Jaeckel trails only Murphy and redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe in digs with 41. But defense is not the primary reason why Jaeckel is a two-time AllSoutheastern Conference selection and a designated leader on a team that lost its biggest vocal presence to graduation. The senior leads her team in kills with 63 Jaeckel making most of senior season at UFFlorida plays Texas in Palo Alto, Calif.Jaeckel SEE FOOTBALL, P AGE 16 SEE VOLLEYBALL, P AGE 16 Thats one of our points of emphasis, not just with John Brantley, but with the whole offense.Charlie Weis offensive coordinator

TYLER JETTArizona State (-7.5) will spoil Tylers script because As much as Tyler wishes his boys from Missouri could get night atmosphere. Quarterback Brock Osweiler turned down a basketball scholarship from Gonzaga to play for ASU, and everybody knows its all about two-sport stars in the high school game. Plus theyve got a guy named Jamal Miles at receiver, and hes sure to evoke memories of pre-injury James Boobie Miles. Just put him in, and watch him spin. If thats great about Permian stars Brian Chavez and Ivory Christian in one All-American package. The Sun Devils know what it means to be perfect, and thats why theyre a lock to come away with the win.

ruling and said Floyd brought the issue to the schools attention in February and the Gators subsequently informed the NCAA. Florida was forthcoming with the NCAA, according to Foley, but the organization still deemed there were violations. According to the NCAA, Floyd accepted $2,500 in cash over several months from an individual not associated with the University of Florida, and he used that money for living expenses, travel and other costs. Along with the money received from that individual, who is unnamed in the NCAAs statement, Floyd received impermissible several institutions prior to enrolling at UF. The NCAA made it clear that Florida was not one of the involved schools. Sharrif grew up in an environment where he didnt have the things most of us take for granted food, shelter and clothing, Foley said in his statement. In the absence of parents, there with the University of Florida, who were not boosters or sports agents, that helped him along the way to provide those things that he would otherwise not have had. The NCAA took Floyds situation and personal hardships into consideration and reduced his penalty from what would normally be a four-game suspension to two games. We examine each situation carefully and consider all elements related to a student-athletes individual circumstances and the violation, said Kevin Lennon, vice president of academic and membership affairs. This gives us reinstatement that take into account all details and are in the best interest of the involved student-athlete. If Floyd repays the $2,700 in the next week, he will be eligible to return for Floridas Southeastern Conference opener at home against Tennessee on Sept. 17. Floyd, who played in all 13 games as a freshman, was expected to start along the line for the Gators this season. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said prior to the season opener that Floyd would play end in the teams base defense, and tackle when the team used a nickel package.

Chris Rainey spun past a defendhe would be stopped for a loss, and back streaked down the left sideline and into the end zone. It was the second of Raineys three touchdowns in Floridas season-opening 41-3 win against Florida Atlantic last week, and one speedster Jeff Demps on the night all-purpose yards. Theyre versatile players, Nixon said. They just make things happen and its great to see them together in tandem to get touches. Its just a beautiful thing. The display set the tone for Floridas offense, and for the two senior running backs, who have a chance ers at Florida since Ciatrick Fason in and Rainey would also become the yards in the same season. Shifting Gears The days of the spread-option are gone, and Rainey couldnt be happier. Throughout their Florida careers, Demps and Rainey played in Urban Meyers spread offense, where they took handoffs or pitches and lined up next to the quarterback in the a pro-style attack under offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, and the team is running what Demps called fense. They line up two yards deeper in the new system, making it easier to Its the best thing that ever happened to me, Rainey said. The whole offense is made for us, so Im just glad it happened. Rainey was part of a pro-style offense at Lakeland High, where he downs as a senior and helped lead the Dreadnaughts to three consecutive state championships. Were in an offense I love, and I cant wait to perform, Rainey said during fall camp. He and Demps didnt have to wait long, as the changing of the guard was evident just one game into the season. Although Weis said Florida kept the offense relatively vanilla for the opener, his philosophy of establishing the run early and often was on display against Florida Atlantic last Saturday. The twosome ran 23 times for reached the century mark for the Everything starts with the run game, Weis said. Its obvious weve got a couple of dynamic guys. But their impact on offense went beyond carrying the ball. Along with the lofty rushing toas Rainey led the team with six reBoth also made key contributions on special teams. Rainey scooped up a blocked punt and brought it back for a touchdown, and Demps returned the opening kickoff to the house only to have it called back due to a holding penalty. I tried to forewarn you of what I expected, and what I expected was basically what you saw, Weis said. Theyre both exceptional football players.Speed KillsWeis called Demps and Rainey the two fastest players he has ever coached at any level. plished and seen in his 32-year coaching career which includes 16 seasons in the NFL and four Super Bowl rings when he makes that kind of claim, people tend to listen. Everyone who comes in all my boys from the other level, I say the same thing to them, Weis said. I say, Youve never seen anything like this. I dont know if they can play dead, but I know they can run. Demps is a world-class sprinter who reportedly turned down a lucrative professional track contract to return to Florida for his senior season. In March, he ran a 6.55 in the school record and claim the NCAA championship, and he has run the multiple occasions. Rainey also ran track when he All-America honors as a freshman NCAA Outdoor Championships. speed on the track translates to speed on the turf, where they have routinely shown the ability to break off what coach Will Muschamp calls yards and receptions longer than Theyre huge for this team, redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley said. Two of the fastest probably the two fastest running backs in the country. Each claims to be faster than the other, but Demps concedes that he likes to bowl through and outrun defenders while Rainey is the shiftier, more elusive back. Regardless of who may be faster, both should expect to touch the ball Theyll both be out there a whole bunch, Weis said recently. Theyll be tired after games. Theyll both be tired.

Each has dealt with injuries or Florida. was derailed after four games when he sustained a shoulder injury, and year when Demps sprained his left foot against Tennessee and Rainey was arrested and subsequently suspended by Meyer. Demps hurt one of his wheels after he carried the ball 26 times against the Volunteers. He missed time and was hampered by the sprain for the remainder of the season. It was frustrating, Demps said. Coach Meyer would come by me every week and say, You got ten carries in you this week? and I would say, Yes coach. Just being me, Im a competitor. But deep down, I dont think I was physically ready. But Demps said there is no lingering pain and he is ready to take on a full load, and a full season. So is Rainey, who said he has matured over the last year and has learned to think before he acts. Still, Weis said concerns remain about the duos stamina and the utilizing them enough, but not too much. Neither has recorded more than rushing mark during his career. But, with a steady rotation in the and healthy, Rainey and Demps could eclipse those marks and go duo in Florida history. Im a big fan of Demps and Rainey, Weis said.

The company is using the space to build a parking garage. Since then, the members of Christian Campus House congregate on UFs Plaza of the Americas weekly to play volleyball and hang out with friends. Christian Campus House sold its land to the north of University Avenue to RLR1 LLC, the Ohio-based executive group building The Stadium Club. The eight-story apartment complex is on the corner of Fletcher Drive and University Avenue. The company plans to use the plot to build a six-story parking garage to complement its complex. With their building sold in December and razed in April, members of the Christian Campus House have been forced to adapt. Kelly Adams, a psychology junior and president of the organization, said the group has grown by about 15 people in the last semester to its current count of about 35 members. In addition to the $700,000 sale of Christian Campus Houses lot, the owners of The Stadium Club donated enough money for the organization to build a new center and a plot of land to build on at 1808 NW First Ave. Construction of the new center is schedsaid.

Hurricane Irene had hit the East Coast hard, and people who were left ily photo albums needed their help. Fitzgerald and Jansen are emergency services interns with the North Central Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross, said Casey Schmelz, emergency services manager for the chapter.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorMeat-Free Mondays applaudedMercy For Animals commends UF for implementing Meat-Free Mondays in both of its dining halls to help conserve the environment, promote healthy eating and protect farmed animals from needless cruelty. While it is great that UF is offering a robust vegetarian menu on Mondays, it would be even better if the universitys Meat-Free Mondays program was entirely meat-free if only for one day a week. Just last month, the Environmental Working Group released The Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health, encouraging Americans to eat less meat and cheese. Last year, the United Nations declared that a global shift away from meat-based diets is vital to save the world from the most devastating impacts of climate change. Two years earlier, the Pew Charitable Trusts found that industrial animal agriculture presents an unacceptable level of risk to public health and damage to the environment, as well as unnecessary harm to the animals we raise for food. How do our food choices affect climate change? Animal way to produce food for the growing human population. It pollutes our environment and consumes huge amounts of water, grain, petroleum, pesticides and drugs. Cutting back or eliminating consumption of animal products not only helps the environment and lowers the risk of serious health problems, such as obesity, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancers, but it also helps put an end to the unnecessary suffering of farmed animals. Since 2003, dozens of colleges, high schools, cities, restaurants, chefs, celebrities, and magazines have adopted Meatless Mondays to reduce animal suffering, combat global warming and promote healthy eating. UF has taken a big step in the right direction by offering vegetarian meals in honor of Meat-Free Mondays. We encourage the university to take it just a step further by going completely meat-free on Mondays. Eddie Garza New York Campaign Coordinator, Mercy For Animals Gainesville, there is a blight upon you. There is a scourge upon us. I am writing of a crime most injurious and offensive. Indeed, I am writing today to condemn the practice of illegal advertising. Perhaps you have seen these abominations along Archer and Old Archer roads (theres an Old Archer?). You shall mark the red and the blue, the furious horizonlivery company because of the frequency of its offenses. Along this particular road, Street, there are, at my count, at least four advertisements placed in the median or alongside public roads. There are other ads, though: buyers of criminals stuck to telephone poles, too an awful omen for the justice that will eventually befall them. Are a few advertisements on the side of the road as serious as I claim? Of course not. The corporate pizza giants signs are not that unsightly though I think they are disgusting. And four signs (in a short span of road) have a relatively small environmental impact, assuming they are ever collected most likely by Code Enforcement on taxpayers dime. But there is a larger issue underlying my complaints: that of the privatization of public space. A companys use of public land for advertising must be viewed as theft, and as citizens we must be vigilant. I suppose it may be tempting to extend my eyesore argument to the Crossing one enjoyed the exhibit. Regardless, there is an absolutely necessary difference: One act was a public use of public (and private) lands, the other an unauthorized use of public lands for commercial interests. Crossing Paths was funded in part by the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, a publicly funded group. Public space is for public use. Had the pizza company in question commissioned prices or open positions, I would still feel the same: Public space is for public use. I will not dare to compare a roadside or median to Yellowstone or to even a lesser deity such as the Ocala National Forest. But those spaces we hold in common must be protected as such. When you see a painted advertisement Street (you know the developers; at least you will soon), remember my words. Regard these guerrilla marketers as they are, insurgents attacking that which is yours and mine. Ryan Fenton graduated from UF with a degree in English.Public land no good for adsI didnt know it would be the last photo I would ever take of the Twin Towers. On a balmy day in August 2001, I ran around Manhattan taking in the sights as I did once or twice a year while visiting my then-father-in-law. The twin structures were amazing and strong and sent a message that was modern, in contrast to the older sights we associate with New York such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. When I returned home from that trip, I had the photos printed and placed them into a cumulative New-York-themed photo album that held every photo I had taken in my nine years of marriage and trips to the Big Apple. A few days after I returned home to California, my then-husband told me he didnt want to be married anymore. I moved out and wasnt sure what to do with those albums that had proved our time together. So I placed them in storage and didnt look at them until I was ready. I received a call on Sept. 11, 2001, from my He was distraught, and I couldnt understand on the television, and I saw it all playing out. I couldnt calm him down because I didnt know what to say. It was more than a year after my divorce packing those photo albums. I opened them and searched for the last set of photos I took in New York. I knew I would return to New York City again one day, and that opportunity came in 2009 with an invitation to attend the commissioning of the U.S.S. New York LP-21 on Nov. 7, 2009. I was given access to this event because my Marine nephew had been invited to represent his squadron on the ship. The ship carried in its hull 7.5 tons of steel from the World Trade Center Twin Towers and the message, Strength I jumped at the chance to gear up with my 30 pounds of cameras and lenses. When the press corps from The New York Times, Associated Press, each branch of the military, and the NYPD raised their cameras, I was proud to squeeze into the pack and raise mine along with them. the attacks wept all around me. The admiral of the Navy, with Hillary Clinton standing by his side, declared to his crew, Sailors, go get your ship. And hundreds of sailors ran past me on a red carpet. They headed to the next pier where the U.S.S. New York waited for them to claim her. It was the most patriotic moment I had ever covered in my career. I welled up and couldnt seem to focus for a few minutes as I ran to catch up with the crew to meet them on the ship. I stopped during my mad dash just for a second and grabbed a few frames of former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani who played a crucial role in guiding the city through its grieving process. He gave me a ing the story. The towers have become a symbol of moving forward for me. Years later, I have moved on and am happily remarried. I rebuilt my life, just as the World Trade Center continues to rebuild its life. Suzette Cook is a 1990 graduate of UFs College of Journalism and Communications and a current masters student.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 IT SELL CHALLAH BREAD EVERY FRIDAY. MINA RADMANAlligator WriterOn the Plaza of the Americas on Friday mornings, students can donate money to help relieve hunger and enjoy freshly baked pieces of challah bread. Challah for Hunger, a national organization that began its UF chapter two years ago, sells loaves of bread each week as a fundraiser for the American Jewish World Service, a national organization that provides aid to the genocide relief in Darfur. Last years recipient was the Bread of the Mighty Food Bank. Student volunteers bake the bread from scratch each Thursday, which is sold Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Challah bread, commonly known as egg bread, is a Jewish recipe made primarily of eggs, braided, baked and usually topped with sesame seeds and raisins. Jewish families have been making this for 3,000 years, said Brenda Wolnerman, an expert challah baker and the Hillel rabbis wife. It takes a full day to prepare and bake the bread. At 11 a.m. on Thursdays, students gather at Hillel to mix the ingredients, which oil, eggs and either sugar or honey. Its a personal preference between honey and sugar, said Jessica Davis, the Jewish student life coordinator. But it bakes better with sugar. Challah for Hunger bakes about three batches of bread each week, which is the equivalent of 40 loaves. After mixing the ingredients this week, Davis and Jennifer Szlasa, a chemical engineering junior, attempted to smooth out the dough. You just need to beat the crap out of it, Szlasa said. The dough is placed in a bowl and left to rise throughout the afternoon. Students return at 6 p.m. to braid and bake the bread. The toppings are added as the bread is separated and braided. The most popular toppings include cinnamon sugar and chocolate chip. Weve had people get really angry at us when weve sold out of the chocolate chip, Davis said. It takes about an hour to bake the bread, which is then cut into pieces and packaged. The organization accepts donations for each package of bread and usually asks for $3 to $4 per piece. Weve had a real good presence on campus and the group gets larger as the weeks go on, Davis said.

MELINDA CARSTENSENAlligator Staff WriterOnce each year around 8:45 a.m., Thomas Panevino watches the clock and waits. It does not matter where he is or what he is doing. He could be at his apartment in Gainesville, where hes a student studying English at UF. Or he could be in Boca Raton, Fla., a place hes called home since 2004. All that matters is the moment when the small hand moves from 45 to 46. This is when he presses the phone to his ear and talks with his mother. Ten years ago, at 8:46 a.m. on a Tuesday in September when members of the terror airplane into one of the Twin Towers Panevino was in his seventh-grade Spanish class in New York City, less than a mile from the World Trade Center. It was the second day of school, and Panevino, now 21, remembers exactly how the morning unfolded. He and his classmates pressed their faces to the window, watching bers his middle school principal coming over the intercom, trying to pacify teachers and students by saying there had been an electrical accident. Panevino remembers his father, who was getting breakfast at Pick A Bagel near the his class to pick him up after the airplane crashed. He remembers the roaring sound of the air He remembers the smoke, the ash, the shower of burning white paper falling like confetti from the sky. He remembers feeling numb. When 8:46 a.m. rolls around each year on 9/11, Panevino calls his mother, an interior designer who used to get coffee at the World Trade Center each morning with a friend. From the morning of Sept. 11 to the morning of Sept. 12, 2001, Panevino and his father, who worked as a graphic designer for LOreal, didnt hear from her. When recounting that day, Panevino is obHes told the story before, but the words come out slow, as if hes crawling through the memories. Panevino denounces the medias prepackaged 9/11 story and the recycled iconic photos of the Twin Towers the ones with the still-standing towers and the single air To him, all of the news stations tell the same story: Planes hit, buildings come down, people are sad, he says. Half the things we saw those things probably couldnt be seen on TV. around his feet. He walked by the unusually silent doorman at his familys apartment, which was across the street from the World Trade Center, and picked up his poodle, Eddie. His father left a note for his wife. I have Thomas. Were OK. That day, Panevino lost everything. Gone City, which he found burned and gutted a few months after the attacks, along with his familys black Jeep. Some of his friends never came home. Their families later left New York. Today, he and his family have the Jeeps crinkled license plate and the note to his mother kept away in a cardboard box, and he keeps in touch with his friends from New York. ter. His father shielded him from ash as they crammed into a 10-person bathroom with 40 other people at a park at the tip of the Manhattan a park where he used to play as a child. He remembers sticking his hand into Eddies carrier to make sure the 6-pound dog could still breathe among all the ash and smoke. He felt the warm lick of Eddies tongue, and relief washed over him. The only child among adults, he rememabout eight people with about 30 people. He remembers the engine almost died, and the tail end of the boat dragged beneath the sur Jersey City. When he and his father boarded a bus to go stay with a friend, Panevino made the same call hundreds of times. The next day, the phone lines opened. His town Manhattan. Panevinos words dont drip with bitter ness. The people who attacked I could very easily hate them, he says. They blew up my home and all that. Over the past 10 years, he says, some U.S. media outlets have perpetuated a negative image of the Middle East, and as a result, a new type of racism has surfaced. do bad, he says. [The media] want to make masses of people representative of a small group of crazy people thats the only good thing of being there, really, is I didnt get that He met Jai Mirchandani, one of his friends from New York, when they were both about 6 months old. Their mothers walked them around in strollers in Battery Park City. Mirchandani, who today studies international business at George Washington Univer sity, says Panevino holding a particular race accountable for the attacks would be under mining what his principles stand for. Although Panevino doesnt consider himself religious, he was always curious to learn more about Mirchandanis Indian culture. When my parents would have the [traditional Hindu] Diwali festival, Thomas would of the holiday itself trying to understand what that means, Mirchandani says. After 9/11, Mirchandanis mother warned him not to walk around the city alone. At that point, it wasnt uncommon for people who It struck me very quickly, Mirchandani says. As a child, you dont experience a lot of racism especially in New York. Panevino says hes looked at everyday life differently over the past 10 years. After that day, theres, like, nothing to worry about. This class, this test it means nothing. The people who were in that tower, they would wish for my problems. Life is good. Sarah Deatherage, one of Panevinos friends at UF, says he has the ability to turn trivial problems upside down and make them funny. know, says Deatherage, a third-year psycholin the world in another way that other people dont. He tells me he thinks about [9/11] every day, Detherage says. And its kind of saddening because down here in Florida we dont think about it every day, and its not part of our lives. And we forget and he doesnt. Growing up in Battery Park City, Panevino remembers the World Trade Center being the center of everything. I have home videos of me learning to walk in the World Trade Center, he says. I could still walk through there with my eyes closed. Panevino accepts the new New York, reand the hordes of tourists that now visit Ground Zero. But he doesnt want to move back. That time of my life is done, he says. Its a whole lifestyle that I understand but I dont want to be a part of anymore. After graduation in Spring 2012, he plans to attend graduate school for international communication and eventually work for a technology company. His career aspirations and his life experiences, he says, are directly related. Those connections are what keep us human, and keep us real, and keep us away from a life that they want to take away, he says. Hes eager to visit and see how the rebuilding process of the World Trade Center the Freedom Tower is coming along. it was that Tuesday morning, he says. As for the 10-year anniversary of the attacks, hes looking forward to getting through the checkpoint. Im gonna call my mom, he says. Its always a hard day. I want to be at Ground Zero. You want to return and be as close to that spot as you can, but you cant. Its something Ive thought a lot about after, but now its something I accept, Panevino says. Its not something thats so far into me now. Death was that day. Once you learn to accept that, you can start living.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Stay Informed on GamedayFollow the alligatorSports football writers on Twitter Saturday for in-game updates from the game: @tomas_verde, @gregluca, @tyler__jett, @wattmattsMore Stories Online at alligatorSports.org UFs soccer, mens and womens cross country and womens golf teams are all in action this weekend. The Gators soccer team plays FSU tonight at 7 p.m. Check the website this weekend for daily updates.Gators forward Erik Murphy was reinstated on Thursday after being See Story, Page 24. MATT WATTS Above all else, one thing stands out from last Saturdays win against Florida Atlantic. Not the 468 yards of total offense. Not Chris Raineys electric which allowed a mere 137 yards. Not even Jelani Jenkins thunderous hit on FAU receiver Willie Floyd. Turnovers. John Brantley threw an intera second on a poor throw into triple coverage in the end zone. Freshman backup Jeff Driskel pass attempt. When you have a minus-3 turnover ratio for the game, usually youre going to lose, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said Tuesday. Thats one of our points of emphasis, not just with John Brantley, but with the whole offense. Weis also pointed to three other near giveaways, including the snap from center Jonotthan Harrison that sailed over Brantleys head and brought back painful memories from a season ago. Coach Will Muschamp has repeatedly harped on the importance of turnover margin, and admitted that the Gators minus-3 mark simply will not get it done. We can talk about all the other stats you want to talk about, those are the two critical ones: big-play ratio and turnovers, he said Monday. Its a huge concern of taking care of the ball offensively. Not only will the Gators need to better protect the rock against UAB on Saturday night at 7, theyll also need to make some things happen on defense. The Blazers return a potent spreadoffense attack that went for more games a year ago. UFs defense limited Alfred Morris to 16 yards on 14 carries last week, but Florida couldnt force a giveaway. Jenkins dropped an easy interception that likely would have resulted in a pick-six the Gators best opportunity for a turnover. Even though we held them to limited rushing yards and limited passing yards, [turnovers are] one thing we stress every game, Bostic said. We need at least three turnovers a game. Who knew college footballs story arc would take such a mundane turn? Dont get us wrong; we still love the game. We love watching College GameDay while recovering from hangovers. We love broing out, playing cornhole and heckling fans from other schools during afternoon tailgates. We love seeing Utah State upset the defending national champs in week one. (Wait, what?) But whats with those sitcom-writing hacks hijacking our sports storyline? Were tired of this will-they, wont-they drama unfolding with Texas A&M. Seriously, other Big 12 teams, can you just step aside and let this happen? But rest assured, fans. We here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column are only focused on what you why we let a pair of writers debate the game between Missouri (of the Big 12 or the SEC or the Big Ten, depending on when you read this) and Arizona State (from the Pac-12 or 14 or 16 or 32). Lets get it on. Mizzou (+7.5) will keep hope alive tonight because Friday nights belong to teams with clear eyes and full hearts, and the TiQuarterback James Franklin is the black Matt Saracen of the Midwest, minus the whole sleeping with the coachs daughter thing. He is a creative sophomore who likes to scramble. He is being asked to replace the golden boy sooner than expected. The whole town doubts he can be a leader. Before tonights game, with pressure mounting, Gary Pinkel will channel his inner Eric Taylor and deliver a poetic, chilling speech as wistful indie music plays in the background: Dont you ever forget this: you should feel real proud.

Gators must win turnover battle BRYAN HOLT Kristy Jaeckel knows theres no time for wasted chances. As a senior who has lost in the NCAA sons of her college volleyball career, she can summarize the new feeling within her in one word. Maybe theres more urgency to get things done, she said. That urgency was a large part of this past summer, which saw all of Floridas volleyball team stay in Gainesville and work on what it felt was the biggest reason for last years We were really focused on our defense as a unit, Jaeckel said. We were trying to clean things up and design and designate whos taking what. Although no one will confuse the 6-foot-2 outside hitter for a defensive specialist, teammates insist Jaeckel has put a new emphasis on defense this season. They hope that continues when the No. 7 Gators face their stiffest competition of the young season at 11 p.m. against No. 10 Texas in the Nike Big Four Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. Shes been working really hard on defense, fellow senior Kelly Murphy said. Shes in the back making defensive plays and increasing her range and touching a lot of balls. Through seven games, Jaeckel trails only Murphy and redshirt freshman libero Taylor Unroe in digs with 41. But defense is not the primary reason why Jaeckel is a two-time AllSoutheastern Conference selection and a designated leader on a team that lost its biggest vocal presence to graduation.

ruling and said Floyd brought the issue to the schools attention in February and the Gators subsequently informed the NCAA. Florida was forthcoming with the NCAA, according to Foley, but the organization still deemed there were violations. According to the NCAA, Floyd accepted $2,500 in cash over several months from an individual not associated with the University of Florida, and he used that money for living expenses, travel and other costs. Along with the money received from that individual, who is unnamed in the NCAAs statement, Floyd received impermissible several institutions prior to enrolling at UF. The NCAA made it clear that Florida was not one of the involved schools. Sharrif grew up in an environment where he didnt have the things most of us take for granted food, shelter and clothing, Foley said in his statement. In the absence of parents, there with the University of Florida, who were not boosters or sports agents, that helped him along the way to provide those things that he would otherwise not have had. The NCAA took Floyds situation and personal hardships into consideration and reduced his penalty from what would normally be a four-game suspension to two games. We examine each situation carefully and consider all elements related to a student-athletes individual circumstances and the violation, said Kevin Lennon, vice president of academic and membership affairs. This gives us reinstatement that take into account all details and are in the best interest of the involved student-athlete. If Floyd repays the $2,700 in the next week, he will be eligible to return for Floridas Southeastern Conference opener at home against Tennessee on Sept. 17. Floyd, who played in all 13 games as a freshman, was expected to start along the line for the Gators this season. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said prior to the season opener that Floyd would play end in the teams base defense, and tackle when the team used a nickel package.

Murphy and sophomore teammate Cody Larson were suspended from team activities following their April 10 arrest on felony burglary charges. The charges were later reduced to misdemeanor trespassing, and Murphy accepted deferred prosecution in July. He was required to undergo 50 hours of community service, avoid consumption of alcohol or other controlled substances for a year, and repay $440 in restitution and court costs. Erik Murphy has served his punishment, coach Billy Donovan said. Were all disappointed with what transpired, but theres no question Erik has learned a great deal through the whole process and understands what a great opportunity and privilege it is to play college basketball. Murphy is expected to be a key contributor for the parted frontcourt starters Chandler Parsons, Alex Tyus and Vernon Macklin. Murphy averaged 4.3 points and 2.3 rebounds playing nearly 11 minutes per game last season. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.He was arrested in April on felony burglary chargesMurphy
