In late August, Hurricane Irene and the destruction has some people worried there will be a pumpkin shortage, according to the Associated Press. Farmers in the region export their pumpkins to businesses across the United States, including Florida. in Florida but not impossible, said Douglas Gergela, a UF research coordinator who has studied pumpkin growth in Florida. Gergela said it takes 70 to 100 days to grow pumpkins in Florida, and it takes 90 to 120 days east. Gergela said the cooler temcrease the yield and size of the pumpkins, making them better for the Halloween season. Despite fears of a pumpkin shortage, three local pumpkin patches do not expect to have a problem this October. Darlene McElwee, owner of Magnolia Farms in Live Oak, said business had been normal until media outlets started reporting a shortage. Weve been wildly busy, and all of the sudden the phones stopped, McElwee said. McElwee receives her pumpkins from a farmer in Missouri. She said the farm did experience a loss in pumpkins, but its owners still have plenty to sell. Both the First United Methodist Church of Alachua and Trinity United Methodist Church in Gainesville receive their pumpexpecting bigger pumpkins than usual. We havent heard anything different, said Susan Horne, the missions director assistant at the Trinity United Methodist Church, She said the church expects to receive the usual number of pumpkins for its annual pumppumpkins will arrive Sept. 30. Pat Harrell, the secretary at the First United Methodist Church of the church receives about 200 pumpkins each year. Last year, Anca Vlasan, a 19-year-old English sophomore, decorated a Gator-themed pumpkin with her roommates for Halloween. ing a pumpkin this year.

JOEY FLECHAS Alligator Staff Writer UF continues to seek a way to implement a 3 percent raise for faculty to offset new state requirements that has state employees contributing to their retirement. days UF Faculty Senate meeting. Vice president for human resources Paula Fussell presented two new options to attendees, saying they were tailored to feedback given by faculty since the issue was raised earlier this year. Under one option, all faculty contributing 3 percent of their salary toward retirement will receive a 3 percent salary increase, and UF would eliminate the payout of unused sick-leave upon leaving the university. The vacation accrual rate for 12-month faculty would year, but payment upon leaving for the university for unused vacation hours would drop to 200 hours, and the maximum annual accrual for vacation hours would With the second option, faculty contributing 3 percent toward retirement could choose between taking the 3 percent raise with the or forgoing the raise and accepting no changes to sick or vacation leave payouts and no maximum accrual for vacation hours. Under either option, faculty who retire by June 30, 2016, would maintain the current leave structure.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Center for Leadership and Service is looking for students to register for the third Gator Global Initiative by Sept. 30. Gator Global Initiative is a conference on Oct. 7 and 8. It is designed to educate students about social issues and social justice, said Mary Kay Carodine, assistant vice president for student affairs. In 2009, when the conference began, about 40 people participated. That number jumped to about 80 in 2010. This year, Carodine said she expects between 140 and 150 people to participate. During the conference, participants will take part in workshops and panels. They will also hear from human rights, global health, pover ty alleviation, social entrepreneur ship and education. It is modeled after President Bill Clintons Global Initiative University. The conference costs $20, which includes three meals, a T-shirt and a workbook, Carodine said. Sociology sophomore Emily Nyren, 19, is ready to attend the conference. Once I learned about GGI, I was fully on board to commit my weekend to learning more about social injustice and the ways that I can make a difference, Nyren said.Social justice workshop, panel registration opens MINA RADMANAlligator WriterA new collection at Library East has books that arent only meant to be read they are meant to be interpreted. One is a handmade pop-up book meant to symbolize the makers experience as a mother. AnothSome of them contain words, but unlike ordinary books, they were designed with letterpress and ink paintings, and they were made with handmade paper and boxes. The books belong to artists from across the United States and have been brought to UF as part of the ARTBOUND 2011 exhibition. ARTBOUND 2011 is the second annual student artists book competition, exhibition and collection, according to Ellen Knudson, an associate in book arts at the Smathers Libraries. The competition was designed by myself as a way to promote and build the artists book collection at UF, Knudson wrote in an email, and as a way for students in Florida and across the nation into a special collection library. In May, students began submitting entries for the competition on the Smathers Libraries website. No UF students entered the competition this year, Knudson said. However, UF students in typography, graphic design and printmaking classes have used the 2010 books as inspiration for class projects. Also, a UF graphic design graduate student did get her book into the exhibit in 2010. alumna, Bea Nettles, chose the 15 winning entries. People are invited to attend the exhibit, which The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday until Nov. 4, Knudson said. The exhibit is also available to view online in The books will become part of the permanent collection in the Special and Area Studies Collection Library in Library East. This is one of the only collections I know that features extremely high-quality work by students on the verge in their profession, Knudson said.Library adds art to bookshelvesArtists compete, design books for annual exhibitClinton

Todays question: Are you planning on buying a pumpkin for Halloween this year?Needless to say, there has been a lot of controversy on the Alligators opinion pages this week. Our editorial board and columnists discussed everything from unions to female politicians to tuition hikes to crazy animal rights activists to the death penalty. We hoped you enjoyed the debate and discussion. So, without further ado, its time to move into this weeks love-us-or-hate-us-but-hopefully-we-got-you-thinking edition of ...Darts and Laurels In relation to yesterdays editorial, we hand out a way-tokick-him-while-hes-down DART to the Supreme Court. At the last minute, the Supreme Court put Troy Davis execution on hold to review the case, keeping him waiting to die for an extra four hours only to say never mind. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. Up next, were giving a its-about-damn-time-we-stoppedbeing-backward LAUREL to the United States government for ending Dont Ask, Dont Tell. That wasnt that hard, was it? The ridiculousness of this next story led us to throw a wayDART to UF for having to repay more than $192,000 in misused and mismanaged grant money to the National Institutes of Health. Good luck spinning this in your favor. sic is undeniable. We want to give a thanks-for-three-decadesof-innovation LAUREL to REM, who recently announced they were calling it quits after 31 years. Let the end-of-theworld-as-we-know-it jokes continue. We stay in the entertainment world for our last stamp of disapproval this week. The recipient of our stop-recyclingcrap-and-be-original DART goes to Hollywood for ABCs remake of Charlies Angels. It was a show in the 1970s, two mediocre movie spinoffs in the 2000s, and now, this show tries to restart the franchise again. Stop it, Hollywood. Finally, we will be giving a thanks-for-your-cooperationand-response LAUREL to the Gainesville chapter of Students for a Democratic Society. Your response to our editorial was very well stated and made some valid arguments. We appreciate you taking the time to sit down and write out a response. The editorial board did not say that SDS does not have the right to be here. The SDS seemed to imply that we were being discriminatory against its group, comparing that statement to something from the civil rights era. What we were trying to say was that no one has a right to a college education, in the legal sense. Of course everyone who is accepted and pays tuition has the right to attend UF. It would be ludicrous to imply otherwise. We wanted to make sure the intentions of that statement were clear to avoid confusion. Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week.Americans are increasingly narrow-mindedA couple of days ago my friend and I found a humorous screen shot of a conversation between dead! and the second friend mistakenly took Osama for Obama and replied that she could not believe that the president was dead. ma used his wives as shields to protect himself from danWhile my friend and I had a good laugh after reading the comical conversation, I could not help but wonder how some people can be so ignorant of world affairs, par ticularly the ones that demand national attention. Dont get me wrong, the mistake that the second friend made was funny, but it is still unacceptable in a broader context. The sad truth is that our generation has been so lost in the distractions of todays society that people sometimes forget that there is a world beyond the one around us. As technological innovations advance, America becomes increasingly progressive. Most of us enjoy the luxury of owning our own laptop or smartphone. We have cars that can take us anywhere we want. We have social networking sites that allow us to escape our own lives and spend hours learning about the life of someone else. In the midst of all this innovation, we become trapped in an ever-expanding bubble. Our vision of the outside world becomes blurred, and we become less and less world aware. When I use the word we, I certainly do not mean every American citizen. Many of us who are a part of this societal change manage to become active in truly grasping the world. Undoubtedly, students have a direct obligation to pass their classes and graduate from school. In many cases, this means sticking to the margins of ones major and doing what it takes to succeed in the lifestyle that the major demands. Consequently, students are not being exposed to a broader scope of knowledge. Some of the most pivotal granted, resulting in a wide ar ray of narrow-minded individuals. In todays society, a narrowminded person does not necessarily equate to an unsuccessful person. This speaks volumes about the types of people that our country is breeding. Some may argue that it is unfair to criticize those who are not up to date on the most landscape of our country. After all, these people may be the millionaires creating our laptops and TVs, or they may be the overworked students who are just trying to make ends meet. Perhaps, in some way, such people deserve admiration. But in a broader context, is isolating ourselves to a American citizens must become world aware to some extent or else risk the chance of our country falling into the hands of unenlightened individuals. Perhaps the biglectualism is at risk. In this era of globalization, Americans cannot live in isolation. Even though we are still a major player on the international stage, our lead role is shrinking. To avoid being replaced by another country, we must have a solid understanding of national and international issues. Collective competency of such issues will allow us to choose the strongest leaders to direct America in the right direction. It is only when we are well informed that we gain the ability to make the right judgments, distinguish right from all, create a successful society and a peaceful world. I urge you to replace the time you normally spend on Facebook and read a few news articles. Akansha Mishra is a pre-law junior at UF. Her column appears on Fridays.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The state of Georgia killed Troy Davis Wednesday at 11:08 pm. Davis, for those that dont know, might very well have been innocent. Twenty years ago, Davis was convicted of the murder of prosecution recanting their statements and allegations of coerced testimony, his conviction was upheld. Although his lawyers scrambled for a last-minute stay, the Supreme Court refused to intervene. After spending 20 years in prison, he was strapped into the chair he would die in, and he sat there for hours as the drama unfolded. Poison was pumped into his veins while a group of strangers surrounded him. Guilty or innocent, no person could wish for a death like that; no person should wish another to die like that. But many people seem to have no qualms about demanding that another person die. The death penalty is still legal in 34 states. Since 2006, 265 people have been executed. Were all of these men guilty? Were they all given a fair trial and convicted properly? The Innocence Project, an advocacy group that works to exonerate wrongly-convicted death-row inmates, says no. Their arguments have been convincing enough to exonerate 17 inmates who spent time on death row with post-conviction DNA evidence alone. It is almost guaranteed that of years, at least a handful more were innocent. New DNA evidence has cast doubt on a range of traditional investigative methods. We know now that eye witnesses are untrustworthy. Often they cant remember events well enough to accurately point out a suspect. Other times, their own motives undermine the truth of their testimony. killer has been pointed out by some as the one who actually committed the murder. Only he and one other witness remain committed to their statements that named Davis as the killer. Police sometimes intimidate witnesses into saying what the prosecution wants. In fact, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, is something most witnesses just cant sible for 75 percent of overturned convictions. Even worse, suspects often feel forced to give false confessions by aggressive police interrogation. A host of other dubious practices, from so-called expert testimony to shoddy forensic science, contribute to the hundreds of wrongful convictions in this country. So what? Mistakes happen. Maybe mistakes are just an ineradicable part of any system. After all, no institution is perfect, and we cant expect perfect results. True enough, but that doesnt justify execution. In a practical sense, execution is expensive. States spend more money keeping prisoners on death row than imprisoning them for life. From 1976 to 2000, Florida executed 44 prisoners at an average cost of about $24 million an execution. Executions also fail to deter criminals. Homicide rates in states without the death penalty are actually lower than those in states with capital punishment. Proponents of the death penalty must ask themselves this question: Is the state-sanctioned murder of innocent people altar of justice? Clearly, killing an innocent man is not just. At its heart, the death penalty isnt about compensation. Its not even about eliminating dangers to society. Its only about revenge. And revenge can only end in tragedy. We should also question what the death penalty says about society. Do we really believe that the state, as long as it follows the proper procedure, is right to take a life? Few, I think, would be comfortable with the implications of that reasoning. Who but the state decides the proper procedure? Who but the state sits in judgment above the accused? When we grant the state the right to kill, we give up our own rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The death penalty is un-American. William Tew is a classics senior at UF.

Those lanes are only going to close up more come Saturday. When the Wildcats running No. 15 Gators (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) at 7 p.m. in Lexington, Ky., Clemons will be going into the teeth of the nations best rushing defense. Florida has allowed just 92 yards on the ground through three games, including minus-9 against Tennessee last week. For its part, Kentucky (2-1, 0-0 SEC) has been one of the countrys worst rushing teams, in part because of a banged-up offensive line. Right tackle Billy Joe Mur phy has missed the last two weeks with a knee injury and is doubtful for Saturday. Center two games with an ankle injury. Right guard Larry Warford is questionable after suffering an ankle injury toward the end of Kentuckys loss to Louisville last week. Working with a patchwork line, the Wildcats have managed 119.3 rushing yards per game, With a 12-hour road trip to beautiful Lexington, Ky., on the horizon, were going to get right to it this week. As Southeastern Conference play heats up, so does the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column. This week, we let two writers debate the heated South Carolina-Vanderbilt matchup. South Carolina (-16) will stop the First of all, last week, when South Carolina squeaked past Navy, was an aberration, a departure from the norm. Steve Spurrier and his boys werent service academy, but theyll be ready for Vanderbilt this Saturday. Star freshman Jadeveon Clowney and the Gamecocks defensive line will handle Vandy up front with ease, bottling up the running back duo of Zac Stacy and Jerron Seymour and forcing Larry Smith to beat South Carolina through the air. Add in Heisman frontrunner Mar cus Lattimore and its going to be a long day for the Dores. MATT WATTS These Dores dont like to be pushed around, as evidenced by Vandys sur prisingly stout defense this season. Currently, the Commodores rank 20th in the nation in total defense, giving up just 14 points per game. They also tout the fourth-best passing defense in the SEC, allowing just 164.3 yards per game while the Gamecocks average fewer than that through the air on offense. Marcus Lattimore may very well get his, but the offense just hasnt been the same since Stephen Garcia became Picks Column SITE: Commonwealth Stadium, Lexington, Ky., (cap. 67,606) KICKOFF: 7:00 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPN / WRUF AM850 SEE PICKSS, pP AGE 14 Brett Le Blanc / AAlligator SS taffThe Gators have allowed just 92 yards on the ground through three games, holding Tennessee to minus-9 yards rushing last Saturday in a 33-23 win. Kentucky is 10th in the SEC in rushing. Gators top-ranked defense tough test for CatsProof is in the numbers: Brantley untestedFor all the pressure and scrutiny John Brantley was under in 2010, Floridas senior quarterback might have the easiest job in football right now. He is working under maybe the best quar terbacks coach in the game in offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. He is surrounded by playmakers and can put up 200-yard games without making any real throws. Saturday against Tennessee, Brantley threw for 213 yards. But Brantleys total yards at the catch that is, the distance his receivers were from the line of scrimmage when they caught the ball was only 15 yards. Fifteen! That number is slightly skewed, because four of his 14 completions were screens behind the line of scrimmage, resulting in negative yards at the catch. Disregarding those, the yards-at-the-catch average for his other 10 completions was just 2.9. Think about that for a second. Brantley threw the ball an average of fewtions. Somewhere in the 8to 9-foot range. Literally every quarterback who has ever had the smallest margin of success playing high school or college football could do what Brantley did on Saturday. He completed one throw farther than 5 yards: an 11yard curl to Deonte Thompson. It may sound like Im hating on Brantley here, but the truth is, Im not. Every quar terback in the world derives a portion of their total yardage from yards after the catch, and rightfully so. Theres a measure of talent that to make plays and hitting them in stride so yardage. But the yards-after-catch total Brantleys playmakers put up Saturday is absurd. Rainey and Co. combined for 198 yards after the catch, an average of more than 14 per completion. It would be incorrect to say Brantleys at fault for making all these short tosses, because theres no reason not to. But some day, probably soon, a team is going to press up on the line and defend the short patterns. And this is where the problems could start. Brantley attempted eight passes against Tennessee to receivers who were more than them. This could be a product of how the Volunteers defended the Gators. They clearly werent taking away the short stuff. Or it could be because Floridas leading wide receiver, Deonte Thompson, has just seven catches for 93 yards, and maybe the players at that position are just bad. Brantley, Weis and everyone else with a voice has ceivers and the offenses ability to go vertical if need be. For the time being, I cant argue with that. The offense is taking what the defense gives them, and its working to the tune of 37.7 points and 442.3 yards per game. But whats going to happen when defenses stop giving up the underneath stuff? Since we havent seen it yet, I cant say up to the challenge. But, if I were a Gators Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

Even more damning, Kentucky has allowed 12 sacks, including six last week 117th out of 120 teams in the nation. It doesnt surprise me, but it startles me, Kentucky coach Joker Phillips said. Weve got to get it corrected because these guys we have are all we got, and these guys have had success a lot of success. If Phillips is looking for a quick turnaround, he may not be happy with what he sees Saturday. Floridas defensive line has dominated this year. Defensive tackles Dominique Easley, Omar Hunter and Jaye Howagainst Tennessee last week, when running back Tauren Poole was limited to 18 yards on nine carries. I always talk to them about dominate the line of scrimmage, making it a one-dimensional game, coach Will Muschamp said. Youve got to be able to do that in this league. If you can make an offense one-dimensional, itll give you a chance to win a lot of football games. Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn want to see their linemen continue to progress, however, particularly in pass-rush techFlorida managed only two sacks. Last week, the group was more successful getting to the quarterback, bringing Tyler Bray down three times. Linebackers Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins each notched a sack, and Howard and defensive end Ronald Powell combined on one takedown. Still, the Gators success last week came in part because they could tee off on the Vols. Florida built a twoscore lead early, forcing Tennessee to throw the ball more. Quinn wants the group to continue to improve its pass rush, saying its technique isnt as sound as it can be. Were just getting started, he said. For Kentuckys offensive line, that is no doubt a scary proposition. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator. org.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 UF VOLLEYBALL BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Through seven home games this season, Florida has played host to two teams ranked in the AVCA Top 25. But its tonights matchup with an unranked Kentucky team that has UF coach Mary Wise dialed in. Theyll be as tough of a match as well have all season at home, she said. After starting their season in a 2-2 lull, the Wildcats (11-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have reeled off nine victories in a row due in large part to size and physicality. Kentucky enters Gainesville leading the SEC in blocks and trailing only South Carolina in kills. this week, senior outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell gave her take on what she ence opponent of 2011. Theyre very consistent and they have some nice athletes on their team, so theyre going to push us, she said. While the focus with the Wildcats is on size and power, they are putting a new focus on defense this year, much like the Gators (8-2, 1-0 SEC). Junior libero Stephanie Klefot leads the SEC in digs with 227 90 more than UF defensive specialist Taylor Unroe. Kentucky is a team that has really found itself and it didnt take long, Wise said. Offensively, the Wildcats are led by outside hitter Ashley Frazier, a transfer from Alabama who led the Crimson Tide two years ago. They block very well, Wise said. They have the ability to point-score out of all different rotations. They run a 5-1, and theyre very effective with it. Meanwhile, the Gators are coming off an easy victory over a middle-ofthe-road Mississippi State team. Florida managed to help out its conferenceleading team hitting percentage with a .327 performance against the Bulldogs. With a double round-robin format, SEC play brings an air of familiarity that is not present during the early season non-conference slate. Having played the players on their team in the past, we play a little bit of their tendencies, junior Tangerine Wiggs said. Its exciting to know that youre going to know something about the people youre going to play.Gators preparing for tough match at home against Kentucky JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer By her junior year of high school, Annie Speeses road to playing soccer for Georgia was seemingly mapped out. As one of the top young prospects in the state, she had her sights on winning another prep title in 2010, breaking every major school record at the Westminster Schools of Augusta and signing a scholarship with the Bulldogs upon graduation. It wasnt until after then-UGA coach Patrick Baker resigned on April 1, that Speeses almost predestined path to Athens, Ga., began to take an unexpected turn. When No. 6 Florida (7-2) faces Georgia (6-2) tonight at 7 in UGA Soccer Stadium, Speese now will be doing more than just ern Conference opener. Shell be playing against the university she had every intention of calling home. [Coach Baker] was kind of a deciding factor in my decision when I was originally looking at When he left, I just wanted to look at other options. Though Georgia quickly hired a replacement for Baker in longtime Ole Miss coach Steve Holeman, Speese backed out of her commitment after receiving the blessing from her parents to look at Florida and Virginia. They were just supportive, she said. They wanted me to be happy and wanted me to go where I wanted to go. I had already looked at several schools and I had chosen not to go there, so I wasnt going to look at them again. As Speese was reopening her recruitment, UF coach Becky Burleigh was trying to wrap up a large and talented class of 12 freshmen recruits. But when Burleigh saw a player of Speeses caliber she scored a state-best 46 goals dur ing her junior season Burleigh took a chance. It was actually really late, so were excited to have her, Bur leigh said. The main thing she was looking for was some place that could really challenge her soccer-wise and, of course, acabill. With three goals and a teamgames with Florida, Speese also appears to have been a good with the campus and was even more impressed with the Gators coaching staff. We play the same system she played in club, which is kind of unusual, Burleigh said. Most kids coming in havent played the same system weve played. Junior defender Jo Dragotta, who assisted a pair of Speeses goals against Missouri, has also marveled at how quickly the freshman has picked up UFs complicated attack. Dragotta said she hasnt seen a player come in with the same ability to assist and score since fellow junior Erika Tymrak had involved in everything and I love that we play in the center and shes right next to me all the time for a little pass, Dragotta said. It makes my job a whole lot easier.

Gergela said the cooler temcrease the yield and size of the pumpkins, making them better for the Halloween season. Despite fears of a pumpkin shortage, three local pumpkin patches do not expect to have a problem this October. Darlene McElwee, owner of Magnolia Farms in Live Oak, said business had been normal until media outlets started reporting a shortage. Weve been wildly busy, and all of the sudden the phones stopped, McElwee said. McElwee receives her pumpkins from a farmer in Missouri. She said the farm did experience a loss in pumpkins, but its owners still have plenty to sell.

Vice president for human resources Paula Fussell presented two new options to attendees, saying they were tailored to feedback given by faculty since the issue was raised earlier this year.

The vacation accrual rate for 12-month faculty would year, but payment upon leaving for the university for unused vacation hours would drop to 200 hours, and the maximum annual accrual for vacation hours would With the second option, faculty contributing 3 percent toward retirement could choose between taking the 3 percent raise with the or forgoing the raise and accepting no changes to sick or vacation leave payouts and no maximum accrual for vacation hours.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Center for Leadership and Service is looking for students to register for the third Gator Global Initiative by Sept. 30. Gator Global Initiative is a conference on Oct. 7 and 8. It is designed to educate students about social issues and social justice, said Mary Kay Carodine, assistant vice president for student affairs. In 2009, when the conference began, about 40 people participated. That number jumped to about 80 in 2010. This year, Carodine said she expects between 140 and 150 people to participate. During the conference, participants will take part in workshops and panels. They will also hear from human rights, global health, pover ty alleviation, social entrepreneur ship and education. It is modeled after President Bill Clintons Global Initiative University. The conference costs $20, which includes three meals, a T-shirt and a workbook, Carodine said. Sociology sophomore Emily Nyren, 19, is ready to attend the conference. Once I learned about GGI, I was fully on board to commit my weekend to learning more about social injustice and the ways that I can make a difference, Nyren said.Social justice workshop, panel registration opens MINA RADMANAlligator WriterA new collection at Library East has books that arent only meant to be read they are meant to be interpreted.

Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. Up next, were giving a its-about-damn-time-we-stoppedbeing-backward LAUREL to the United States government for ending Dont Ask, Dont Tell. That wasnt that hard, was it? The ridiculousness of this next story led us to throw a wayDART to UF for having to repay more than $192,000 in misused and mismanaged grant money to the National Institutes of Health. Good luck spinning this in your favor. sic is undeniable. We want to give a thanks-for-three-decadesof-innovation LAUREL to REM, who recently announced they were calling it quits after 31 years. Let the end-of-theworld-as-we-know-it jokes continue. We stay in the entertainment world for our last stamp of disapproval this week. The recipient of our stop-recyclingcrap-and-be-original DART goes to Hollywood for ABCs remake of Charlies Angels. It was a show in the 1970s, two mediocre movie spinoffs in the 2000s, and now, this show tries to restart the franchise again. Stop it, Hollywood. Finally, we will be giving a thanks-for-your-cooperationand-response LAUREL to the Gainesville chapter of Students for a Democratic Society. Your response to our editorial was very well stated and made some valid arguments. We appreciate you taking the time to sit down and write out a response. The editorial board did not say that SDS does not have the right to be here. The SDS seemed to imply that we were being discriminatory against its group, comparing that statement to something from the civil rights era. What we were trying to say was that no one has a right to a college education, in the legal sense. Of course everyone who is accepted and pays tuition has the right to attend UF. It would be ludicrous to imply otherwise. We wanted to make sure the intentions of that statement were clear to avoid confusion. Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week.Americans are increasingly narrow-mindedA couple of days ago my friend and I found a humorous screen shot of a conversation between dead! and the second friend mistakenly took Osama for Obama and replied that she could not believe that the president was dead. ma used his wives as shields to protect himself from danWhile my friend and I had a good laugh after reading the comical conversation, I could not help but wonder how some people can be so ignorant of world affairs, par ticularly the ones that demand national attention. Dont get me wrong, the mistake that the second friend made was funny, but it is still unacceptable in a broader context. The sad truth is that our generation has been so lost in the distractions of todays society that people sometimes forget that there is a world beyond the one around us. As technological innovations advance, America becomes increasingly progressive. Most of us enjoy the luxury of owning our own laptop or smartphone. We have cars that can take us anywhere we want. We have social networking sites that allow us to escape our own lives and spend hours learning about the life of someone else. In the midst of all this innovation, we become trapped in an ever-expanding bubble. Our vision of the outside world becomes blurred, and we become less and less world aware. When I use the word we, I certainly do not mean every American citizen. Many of us who are a part of this societal change manage to become active in truly grasping the world. Undoubtedly, students have a direct obligation to pass their classes and graduate from school. In many cases, this means sticking to the margins of ones major and doing what it takes to succeed in the lifestyle that the major demands. Consequently, students are not being exposed to a broader scope of knowledge. Some of the most pivotal granted, resulting in a wide ar ray of narrow-minded individuals. In todays society, a narrowminded person does not necessarily equate to an unsuccessful person. This speaks volumes about the types of people that our country is breeding. Some may argue that it is unfair to criticize those who are not up to date on the most landscape of our country. After all, these people may be the millionaires creating our laptops and TVs, or they may be the overworked students who are just trying to make ends meet. Perhaps, in some way, such people deserve admiration. But in a broader context, is isolating ourselves to a American citizens must become world aware to some extent or else risk the chance of our country falling into the hands of unenlightened individuals. Perhaps the biglectualism is at risk. In this era of globalization, Americans cannot live in isolation. Even though we are still a major player on the international stage, our lead role is shrinking. To avoid being replaced by another country, we must have a solid understanding of national and international issues. Collective competency of such issues will allow us to choose the strongest leaders to direct America in the right direction. It is only when we are well informed that we gain the ability to make the right judgments, distinguish right from all, create a successful society and a peaceful world. I urge you to replace the time you normally spend on Facebook and read a few news articles. Akansha Mishra is a pre-law junior at UF. Her column appears on Fridays.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The state of Georgia killed Troy Davis Wednesday at 11:08 pm. Davis, for those that dont know, might very well have been innocent. Twenty years ago, Davis was convicted of the murder of prosecution recanting their statements and allegations of coerced testimony, his conviction was upheld. Although his lawyers scrambled for a last-minute stay, the Supreme Court refused to intervene. After spending 20 years in prison, he was strapped into the chair he would die in, and he sat there for hours as the drama unfolded. Poison was pumped into his veins while a group of strangers surrounded him. Guilty or innocent, no person could wish for a death like that; no person should wish another to die like that. But many people seem to have no qualms about demand ing that another person die. The death penalty is still legal in 34 states. Since 2006, 265 people have been executed. Were all of these men guilty? Were they all given a fair trial and convicted properly? The Innocence Project, an advocacy group that works to exonerate wrongly-convicted death-row inmates, says no. Their arguments have been convincing enough to exoner ate 17 inmates who spent time on death row with post-conviction DNA evidence alone. It is almost guaranteed that of years, at least a handful more were innocent. New DNA evidence has cast doubt on a range of traditional investigative methods. We know now that eye witnesses are untrustworthy. Often they cant remember events well enough to accurately point out a suspect. Other times, their own motives undermine the truth of their testimony. killer has been pointed out by some as the one who actually committed the murder. Only he and one other witness remain committed to their statements that named Davis as the killer. Police sometimes intimidate witnesses into saying what the prosecution wants. In fact, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, is something most witnesses just cant sible for 75 percent of overturned convictions. Even worse, suspects often feel forced to give false confessions by aggressive police interrogation. A host of other dubious practices, from so-called expert testimony to shoddy forensic science, contribute to the hundreds of wrongful convictions in this country. So what? Mistakes happen. Maybe mistakes are just an ineradicable part of any system. After all, no institution is perfect, and we cant expect perfect results. True enough, but that doesnt justify execution. In a practical sense, execution is expensive. States spend more money keeping prisoners on death row than imprisoning them for life. From 1976 to 2000, Florida executed 44 prisoners at an average cost of about $24 million an execution. Executions also fail to deter criminals. Homicide rates in states without the death penalty are actually lower than those in states with capital punishment. Proponents of the death penalty must ask themselves this question: Is the state-sanctioned murder of innocent people altar of justice? Clearly, killing an innocent man is not just. At its heart, the death penalty isnt about compensation. Its not even about eliminating dangers to society. Its only about revenge. And revenge can only end in tragedy. We should also question what the death penalty says about society. Do we really believe that the state, as long as it follows the proper procedure, is right to take a life? Few, I think, would be comfortable with the implications of that reasoning. Who but the state decides the proper procedure? Who but the state sits in judgment above the accused? When we grant the state the right to kill, we give up our own rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The death penalty is un-American. William Tew is a classics senior at UF.

Well have updates and coverage of soccer, volleyball, womens golf and cross country, as well as football. Freshman Annie Speese took an unexpected road to end up at Florida. Shes contributing early as a scorer. See Story, Page 16. UF LEADS NATION IN RUSHING DEFENSE. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Josh Clemons has been asked to run through some narrow holes this season. Those lanes are only going to close up more come Saturday. When the Wildcats running No. 15 Gators (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) at 7 p.m. in Lexington, Ky., Clemons will be going into the teeth of the nations best rushing defense. Florida has allowed just 92 yards on the ground through three games, including minus-9 against Tennessee last week. For its part, Kentucky (2-1, 0-0 SEC) has been one of the countrys worst rushing teams, in part because of a banged-up offensive line. Right tackle Billy Joe Mur phy has missed the last two weeks with a knee injury and is doubtful for Saturday. Center two games with an ankle injury. Right guard Larry Warford is questionable after suffering an ankle injury toward the end of Kentuckys loss to Louisville last week. Working with a patchwork line, the Wildcats have managed 119.3 rushing yards per game, With a 12-hour road trip to beautiful Lexington, Ky., on the horizon, were going to get right to it this week. As Southeastern Conference play heats up, so does the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column. This week, we let two writers debate the heated South Carolina-Vanderbilt matchup. South Carolina (-16) will stop the First of all, last week, when South Carolina squeaked past Navy, was an aberration, a departure from the norm. Steve Spurrier and his boys werent service academy, but theyll be ready for Vanderbilt this Saturday. Star freshman Jadeveon Clowney and the Gamecocks defensive line will handle Vandy up front with ease, bottling up the running back duo of Zac Stacy and Jerron Seymour and forcing Larry Smith to beat South Carolina through the air. Add in Heisman frontrunner Mar cus Lattimore and its going to be a long day for the Dores. MATT WATTS These Dores dont like to be pushed around, as evidenced by Vandys sur prisingly stout defense this season. Currently, the Commodores rank 20th in the nation in total defense, giving up just 14 points per game. They also tout the fourth-best passing defense in the SEC, allowing just 164.3 yards per game while the Gamecocks average fewer than that through the air on offense. Marcus Lattimore may very well get his, but the offense just hasnt been the same since Stephen Garcia became Picks Column SITE: Commonwealth Stadium, Lexington, Ky., (cap. 67,606) KICKOFF: 7:00 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPN / WRUF AM850 SEE PICKS, P AGE 14 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator S taffThe Gators have allowed just 92 yards on the ground through three games, holding Tennessee to minus-9 yards rushing last Saturday in a 33-23 win. Kentucky is 10th in the SEC in rushing. Gators top-ranked defense tough test for CatsProof is in the numbers: Brantley untestedFor all the pressure and scrutiny John Brantley was under in 2010, Floridas senior quarterback might have the easiest job in football right now. He is working under maybe the best quar terbacks coach in the game in offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. He is surrounded by playmakers and can put up 200-yard games without making any real throws. Saturday against Tennessee, Brantley threw for 213 yards. But Brantleys total yards at the catch that is, the distance his receivers were from the line of scrimmage when they caught the ball was only 15 yards. Fifteen! That number is slightly skewed, because four of his 14 completions were screens behind the line of scrimmage, resulting in negative yards at the catch. Disregarding those, the yards-at-the-catch average for his other 10 completions was just 2.9. Think about that for a second. Brantley threw the ball an average of fewtions. Somewhere in the 8to 9-foot range. Literally every quarterback who has ever had the smallest margin of success playing high school or college football could do what Brantley did on Saturday. He completed one throw farther than 5 yards: an 11yard curl to Deonte Thompson. It may sound like Im hating on Brantley here, but the truth is, Im not. Every quar terback in the world derives a portion of their total yardage from yards after the catch, and rightfully so. Theres a measure of talent that to make plays and hitting them in stride so yardage. But the yards-after-catch total Brantleys playmakers put up Saturday is absurd. Rainey and Co. combined for 198 yards after the catch, an average of more than 14 per completion. It would be incorrect to say Brantleys at fault for making all these short tosses, because theres no reason not to. But some day, probably soon, a team is going to press up on the line and defend the short patterns. And this is where the problems could start. Brantley attempted eight passes against Tennessee to receivers who were more than them. This could be a product of how the Volunteers defended the Gators. They clearly werent taking away the short stuff. Or it could be because Floridas leading wide receiver, Deonte Thompson, has just seven catches for 93 yards, and maybe the players at that position are just bad. Brantley, Weis and everyone else with a voice has ceivers and the offenses ability to go vertical if need be. For the time being, I cant argue with that. The offense is taking what the defense gives them, and its working to the tune of 37.7 points and 442.3 yards per game. But whats going to happen when defenses stop giving up the underneath stuff? Since we havent seen it yet, I cant say up to the challenge. But, if I were a Gators Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca SEE FOOTBALL, P AGE 15END OF GREGULA TION

Even more damning, Kentucky has allowed 12 sacks, including six last week 117th out of 120 teams in the nation. It doesnt surprise me, but it startles me, Kentucky coach Joker Phillips said. Weve got to get it corrected because these guys we have are all we got, and these guys have had success a lot of success. If Phillips is looking for a quick turnaround, he may not be happy with what he sees Saturday. Floridas defensive line has dominated this year. Defensive tackles Dominique Easley, Omar Hunter and Jaye Howagainst Tennessee last week, when running back Tauren Poole was limited to 18 yards on nine carries. I always talk to them about dominate the line of scrimmage, making it a one-dimensional game, coach Will Muschamp said. Youve got to be able to do that in this league. If you can make an offense one-dimensional, itll give you a chance to win a lot of football games. Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn want to see their linemen continue to progress, however, particularly in pass-rush techFlorida managed only two sacks. Last week, the group was more successful getting to the quarterback, bringing Tyler Bray down three times. Linebackers Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins each notched a sack, and Howard and defensive end Ronald Powell combined on one takedown. Still, the Gators success last week came in part because they could tee off on the Vols. Florida built a twoscore lead early, forcing Tennessee to throw the ball more. Quinn wants the group to continue to improve its pass rush, saying its technique isnt as sound as it can be. Were just getting started, he said. For Kentuckys offensive line, that is no doubt a scary proposition. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator. org.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2011 UF VOLLEYBALL BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Through seven home games this season, Florida has played host to two teams ranked in the AVCA Top 25. But its tonights matchup with an unranked Kentucky team that has UF coach Mary Wise dialed in. Theyll be as tough of a match as well have all season at home, she said. After starting their season in a 2-2 lull, the Wildcats (11-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have reeled off nine victories in a row due in large part to size and physicality. Kentucky enters Gainesville leading the SEC in blocks and trailing only South Carolina in kills. this week, senior outside hitter Stephanie Ferrell gave her take on what she ence opponent of 2011. Theyre very consistent and they have some nice athletes on their team, so theyre going to push us, she said. While the focus with the Wildcats is on size and power, they are putting a new focus on defense this year, much like the Gators (8-2, 1-0 SEC). Junior libero Stephanie Klefot leads the SEC in digs with 227 90 more than UF defensive specialist Taylor Unroe. Kentucky is a team that has really found itself and it didnt take long, Wise said. Offensively, the Wildcats are led by outside hitter Ashley Frazier, a transfer from Alabama who led the Crimson Tide two years ago. They block very well, Wise said. They have the ability to point-score out of all different rotations. They run a 5-1, and theyre very effective with it. Meanwhile, the Gators are coming off an easy victory over a middle-ofthe-road Mississippi State team. Florida managed to help out its conferenceleading team hitting percentage with a .327 performance against the Bulldogs. With a double round-robin format, SEC play brings an air of familiarity that is not present during the early season non-conference slate. Having played the players on their team in the past, we play a little bit of their tendencies, junior Tangerine Wiggs said. Its exciting to know that youre going to know something about the people youre going to play.Gators preparing for tough match at home against Kentucky JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer By her junior year of high school, Annie Speeses road to playing soccer for Georgia was seemingly mapped out. As one of the top young prospects in the state, she had her sights on winning another prep title in 2010, breaking every major school record at the Westminster Schools of Augusta and signing a scholarship with the Bulldogs upon graduation. It wasnt until after then-UGA coach Patrick Baker resigned on April 1, that Speeses almost predestined path to Athens, Ga., began to take an unexpected turn. When No. 6 Florida (7-2) faces Georgia (6-2) tonight at 7 in UGA Soccer Stadium, Speese now will be doing more than just ern Conference opener. Shell be playing against the university she had every intention of calling home. [Coach Baker] was kind of a deciding factor in my decision when I was originally looking at When he left, I just wanted to look at other options. Though Georgia quickly hired a replacement for Baker in longtime Ole Miss coach Steve Holeman, Speese backed out of her commitment after receiving the blessing from her parents to look at Florida and Virginia. They were just supportive, she said. They wanted me to be happy and wanted me to go where I wanted to go. I had already looked at several schools and I had chosen not to go there, so I wasnt going to look at them again. As Speese was reopening her recruitment, UF coach Becky Burleigh was trying to wrap up a large and talented class of 12 freshmen recruits. But when Burleigh saw a player of Speeses caliber she scored a state-best 46 goals dur ing her junior season Burleigh took a chance. It was actually really late, so were excited to have her, Bur leigh said. The main thing she was looking for was some place that could really challenge her soccer-wise and, of course, acabill. With three goals and a teamgames with Florida, Speese also appears to have been a good with the campus and was even more impressed with the Gators coaching staff. We play the same system she played in club, which is kind of unusual, Burleigh said. Most kids coming in havent played the same system weve played. Junior defender Jo Dragotta, who assisted a pair of Speeses goals against Missouri, has also marveled at how quickly the freshman has picked up UFs complicated attack. Dragotta said she hasnt seen a player come in with the same ability to assist and score since fellow junior Erika Tymrak had involved in everything and I love that we play in the center and shes right next to me all the time for a little pass, Dragotta said. It makes my job a whole lot easier.
