You Decide.Not officially associated with the University of Florida Published by Campus Communications, Inc. of Gainesville, Florida CLARE LENNON, EMILY MORROW and MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Staff Writers When Student Government Supervisor of Elections Toni Megna announced the results of the fall Student Senate elections, members of the Unite Party jumped up for their usual cheers and whistles. Unite Party candidates claimed 46 of the 50 seats up for election this cycle. Students Party candidates won three seats, and one independent candidate was elected. About 87 percent of the 7,229 students who voted on the referendum to repeal the 15 percent tuition hike recently imposed by the administration. A referendum question gauges student opinion but takes no actual action. This year, 8,271 ballots were cast, compared to the 7,526 last year. The results may not even matter, though. Errors with the new electronic voting system might have caused students to accidentally vote in the wrong district. When student addresses were loaded into the computer system, many of the addresses were students permanent home addresses instead of their Gainesville addresses. Records indicate 535 students voted in District E, which is the district for commuter students. Of those, 501 voted for Unite Party candidate Brett Rowland. That district includes all ZIP codes Gator Chomp ranked as a top college football traditionOhio State University took the top spot, pg 3.

JESSICA OLIVER Alligator Contributing Writer The 23-year-old speech language pathology masters student at UF created a petition, which has collected more than 1,300 signatures as of Wednesday, to prevent the Architecture and Fine Arts Library and the Music Library from moving their collections to Library West. I saw that everyone had an opinion and seemed to be talking openly about what could or should be done, but none were really doing anything about it, she said. sues that would only be heightened by the arrival of other collections, Reynolds said in the petition. If administration decides to move the collections, the students and faculties of the College of Design, Construction and Planning and College of Fine Arts would no longer have the luxury of the collections being in their own buildings. However, moving the collections would make them more accessible, considering that Library West is open longer than the other libraries. Christopher Silver, dean of the College of Design, Construction and Planning, has said his college would assist saving innovations similar to its own.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Contributing WriterGators have yet another reason to be proud. UFs Gator Chomp was recently recognized by collegemagazine. com as one of the top 10 college football traditions. Ranked at No. 10, writer Danny Golden chose the Gator Chomp due to its intimidation factor when coupled with the Florida band playing the Jaws theme. Other traditions that made the list were the University of Geor gias bulldog, Uga; the Univer sity of Iowas pink locker room; the Auburn Universitys eagle dubbed the War Eagle; and the Armys/Navys march onto the dotting of the I by the sousaphone player in Ohio State Universitys band. The Gator Chomp is not only used in the stadium and UFs campus, but it is also used by people all over the world to show herself as a Gator fan. UF spokesman Steve Orlando was pleased to make the rankings. Whats not to like about that? he said. Its a nice recognition of the kind of enthusiasm Gator fans have.Gator Chomp ranked No. 10 on top college football traditions listSAFETY SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterRecent data indicates there is an increase in the number of UF students transported to the hospital for alcohol-related emergencies. This semester, 13 students have been transported for alcohol-related emergencies so far, according to Maureen Miller, the coordinator for alcohol and other drug prevention at GatorWell Health Promotion Ser vices. Last year, only about nine students had been admitted during the fall semester. are contributing to this trend. How the increase is related to the Medical Amnesty Policy or other contributing factors has yet to be determined, he said. The Medical Amnesty Policy waives disciplinary action under certain conditions to ensure that students call medical support during alcohol, drug or other health emergencies. some time. Safety is the top priority for the university, Miller said. There were several close situations of students not getting the help they needed. At UF the protocol applies only to the UF Student Code of Conduct, Housing & Residence Educations Community Standards and Greek Life policies. Police may enforce laws within their jurisdictions under the state and federal law. Students considered by the Dean of Students Ofcounselors from GatorWell for a one-hour educational seminar, Miller said. History sophomore Charlie Vilmar, 19, is aware of the policy but wouldnt call the police unless absolutely necessary. I mean, if its a dire situation I would go to the hospital, Vilmar said. But otherwise, I keep track of my friends, and they keep track of themselves. With the upcoming football game on Saturday against Alabama, UPD said this increased trend of alcohol-related transports will not affect its policy. Gameday rules have not changed, Barber said. We remain consistently focused on safety and security operations at each game.Semester shows upward trend in alcohol-related emergencies

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterAt the age of 48, John Kaplan was a Pulitzer-Prize winning photojournalist, a father of two and a journalism professor at UF. At the same age, he became a cancer patient. That word, cancer, can cut through you like a knife, he said. Shortly after being diagnosed in August 2008 with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a potentially deadly blood disease, Kaplan found an outlet for his pain, fears and hopes through his camera lens. Through photos and videos he took of himself, Kaplan documented his battle with cancer. Viewers of Kaplans tured, are privy to emotionally charged scenes, from his hair falling out in the shower and his painful bone marrow transplant to his wifes expression when his doctor told him he was in complete remission in 2008. The documentary is meant to inspire and give people hope, Kaplan said, by showing that many cancers are not the death sentences they once were but rather are treatable, and beatable, illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of cancer survivors in the United States has increased from 3 million in 1971 to 11.7 million in the most recent count. That may be the small nugget of courage [cancer patients] need said. its television debut in Gainesville gle Awards and several awards continues to grow, as does the number of lives it has touched. Kaplan has organized 450 lion homes. Kaplan is giving away 10,000 free copies of the DVD and its accompanying guide to coping with cancer for anyone who has been touched by cancer a disease that affects one in three Americans. As of Wednesday, Kaplan said he has given away about 4,600 copies to cancer patients, their friends and families, caregivers and medical professionals. The documentary is also being used as a teaching tool. After founding partnerships with organizations like the American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, cal professionals across the United States to stress the important concept of humanism in medicine the idea that doctors should treat patients not just as charts and diagnoses but as individuals with feelings, hopes and fears, Kaplan said. campaign as a case study in his Social Media and Social Responsibility course at UF, a class that brings together writers, photographers, marketing and public relations students to create media campaigns to raise public awareness about issues like Type 1 diabetes. Kaplan said his students and colleagues at UF played some of the largest roles in his healing process. His doctors told him it was important to continue doing what he loved through his treatment. For Kaplan, that was teaching. Days after his diagnosis, Kaplan stood in front of his internaday of school and told them that he had cancer. But he was going to beat it, he said, and he would be there every day. teacher even though my body was on this rough roller coaster ride, he said. Being a professor here is As a professor, Kaplan tells his journalism students to stay away from clichs. Cancer stories, he used to say as a Pulitzer Prize judge, are always clichs. But when you get cancer, you dont feel like a clich, he said. You just want to beat it. Kaplan said he used to hope and pray every day that he would be able to end his documentary with a clich happy ending a shot of him holding his son in the air, saying the mantra that got him Three years later, thousands of Americans have watched the credits roll after that exact scene, and Kaplan is living happily ever after.

And yet, the moral fabric of American society is still intact. UF recently took a positive step toward destigmatizing the idea of underage drinking when it passed its alcohol-related medical amnesty policy. If students go to the hospital and are under the legal drinking age, they will receive treatment without facing disciplinary action from the university. This does not mean you should get black-out drunk all of the time, but in case you ever have one too many, you can feel safe going to a UF medical facility. This fall, there have been 13 UF students with alcohol-related emergencies, 5 of which were underage. Although this number is the highest for a fall semester since 2007, it is actually a good sign if students who otherwise would shy away from treatment are seeking medical attention for problems that could lead to serious illness or death. Of course, we all hear and make the argument that it is a little strange that we allow people 18 years or older to vote and die for our country, but deny them the ability to drink alcohol. But an even bigger argument for lowering the drinking age and removing the stigma from alcohol consumption has to do with health and safety. In most families, parents are afraid to discuss the idea of drinking with their children, but that could be changing. It is not because there are not enough ad campaigns telling par ents to talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol. Its because the government wants teenagers to be informed about alcohol consumption while denying them the ability to legally learn about it in the comfort of their own home. Parents can talk about the effects of drinking all day, but you wake up with one of the worst headaches you have ever had can teach you a lot more about the consequences of alcohol consumption. It is no wonder there are so many incidents of binge drinking and alcohol-related medical emergencies when underage students go to college. The fact of the matter is that some students will go to par ties where alcohol is present, and most will partake in the festivities. Lowering the drinking age and allowing students to expealong with guidance of experienced adults, can go a long way in reducing these problems. Bachmann should be taken with grain of saltShes radical. Shes outspoken. Shes amusing. Shes insane. Shes even moderately attractive. She is, quite simply, absolutely entertaining. But Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, while being all of those things, is also dangerous. Two weeks ago, at a Republican Party debate, a trivial issue was brought up by a few of the candidates. During his time as governor, Texas Gov. and GOP hopeful Rick Perry endorsed an executive order requiring girls entering the sixth grade to receive a vaccination against the human papillomavirus, an STD responsible for cervical cancer among women. Despite the fact that parents were able to opt out of the procedure with a simple form, the order was rejected by the Texas legislature. Its a black mark against Perry that has surfaced numer ous times during his campaign, particularly since it represents a government intrusion into private life. And if you believe Bachmanns claims, its also an action that would have jeopardized the mental health of countless young women. During the debate, Bachmann was clear. Perrys order was a government injection of innocent littlegirls. And the vaccine? A potentially dangerous drug. Following the debate, Bachmann went one step further, telling our beloved Fox News she had met an audience member who claimed to have a child who had suffered mental retardation as a result of the vaccination. The next day, Bachmanns claims were deemed so egregiously untruthful that the American Pediatric Association felt the need to step in with a press release stating that there If this all sounds eerily familiar, its because this is not the For years, actress Jenny McCarthy has been championing against vaccinations, claiming they resulted in the emer gence of autism in her own son and in countless other chilvaccines and autism. To be quite clear, vaccines do not cause mental retardation in children. They are not danger ous. They can and do save lives. Bachmann lied. In some ways, its not her fault. You dont blame a child for thinking Paul Revere rode his horse to scare away the British. Its not true, and somebody really needs to step in and give that child a more appropriate education. But its a single misguided kid. Theyre not responsible for spouting this nonsense because nobody expects them to be. the uninformed tea party cause, somebody else would be. The issue at hand is not that people like Bachmann exist. Theres no stopping that. Whats problematic is the fact that we pay attention to them. Sure, most of it is out of mockery. Bachmann is not a serious contender for the GOP nomination. Even Herman Cain is looking better than she is. We follow Bachmann in the news not because she could become our next president, but because we love hearing the absurd things that come out of her mouth. But theres a point where shameless entertainment segues into a legitimate cause for concern. For every one of us who wisely takes every single thing Bachmann says with a grain of salt, theres a person out there who heard her criticism of vaccinations and took her words to heart. Theres at least one mother out there who is now much less likely to vaccinate her daughter against a potentially deadly disease. By giving Bachmann a platform, weve given her the abilsociety. Her social conservatism, if it were to become public policy, would be detrimental to America. But simply listening to her state it might be just as bad.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Ever since I was a little kid, I have been told that plants needed Miracle-Gro to grow big and strong. While it is true that plants need nutrients to grow, chemical fertilizers are not the best choice to feed them. Fertilizers are Mother Natures drugs. Too much can lead her to O.D. Studies have shown that mass fertilizer use has led to a large loss in biodiversity due to runoff pollution. Runoff is danger ous for people and animals; it gets into our water supplies, causing sickness or death. For decades, the United States has used nitrogen-based fer tilizers, believing it would create the greatest growth in plants. However, scientists have found that runoff nitrogen can lead to dead zones in salt-water systems, where living creatures cannot survive. Still want big vegetables? There is a solution: compost. Compost improves the soils ability to hold nutrients and stabilizes soil pH. It can increase the water-holding capacity of sandy soils and reduce erosion and runoff. Compost also helps reduce plant-borne disease. The nutrients that are present in your compost are biodegradable and will not harm the environment. Composting is also very easy and cheap. The only effort needed is to put your food scraps in the pile or bucket. Once your scraps are decomposed, add it to your garden. Scientists have shown that compost gardens produce growth output similar to that of chemical fertilizers. It is hard to produce in bulk, but for those of you with home If we all change our behavior to use compost rather than chemical fertilizers, we can help save Mother Earth. Stop using chemical fertilizers. If you want to increase the size of your cucumber; compost it! Kimberly Johnston is a wildlife ecology and conservation senior at UF.Gardeners should use compost in place of chemical fertilizersGuest columnKimberly JohnstonSpeaking Out What do the Florida legislature, the Board of Trustees and Student Government have in common? cantly more in tuition, and each is responsible for votes that resulted in a 15-percent total increase just this year. The Editorial Board of the Alligator last week indicated that even our school newspaper believes making students pay more is smart policy, and we shouldnt feel entitled to an affordable education anyway. Less surprisingly, the UF College Republicans expressed similar enthusiasm for the hikes. The UF College Democrats couldnt disagree more. Affordable higher education is not a wasteful entitlement, but a smart investment. State-subsidized higher education greatly promotes social mobility, giving people the opportunity to contribute more to society than they may have otherwise. Making education less accessible translates into a waste of human capital, which is critical to the prosperity of advanced economies. The coupling of cuts to merit-based aid such as Bright Futures and tuition increases only further sets back the middle class, which largely does not have access to need-based aid. As public education in this state is strangled, it is becoming evident that the Republicans efforts to make this state more business-friendly is in fact making the outlook bleaker for thousands of young Floridians. Our leaders in Tallahassee have made their priorities clear: The interests of students and the middle class are not among them. Therefore, our defense of Bright Futures and condemn both the heavy tuition increases and constant cuts to education funding. Ford Dwyer is a political science and history junior at UF.

Its great that you are a UF alumnus and opening up for Big Sean. How do you feel to be coming back to Gainesville and opening up for a huge hip-hop artist? Its amazing. Im excited in a lot of ways proud and really just happy to be back in Gainesville, the town that I went to college in and that gave me my last four years. Its an amazing feeling to come back and see everyone, you know, to do a show like this. It lets me know that Im moving in the right At UF, you realized that you wanted to further pursue your music career. What triggered it for you? What made you come to that realization? Ive been writing music at a very young age, since 13. I acof messing around and for the fun of it, but my senior year I went back to it. Since I graduated, I was able to put my full focus, time, energy and 100 percent of me into it because I really couldnt give that in college. In college was when it came back How did your parents react when you told them that you werent pursuing telecommunications, but instead pursuing your music career? Im very fortunate. My parents were very supportive of me in every way. They were 100 percent behind me. I think they knew that I wanted this and that I had it in me. I think they Do you think you will ever pursue telecommunications, or is your focus just music? No absolutely. Theres a lot of things Id like to do in on broadcast in college, but honestly I always enjoyed taking classes, so, I wouldnt even mind going back to school. (Fields chuckles) Im still writing scripts on the side, and its just for the time being Ive chosen to focus on this but, yeah, I do see myself What is the inspiration for your mixtape thats currently in the works? The theme what is it going to be about? ings and my experiences that Ive had. As an individual, I think that I share a lot of obstacles and challenges other people have went through. For this mixtape, its an interesting time in my life, because Im chasing a dream that Ive had at a very young age and that not many people even have the opportunity to get. I basically want to capture the moment of everything thats going on while Im doing these shows because its a lot of excitement around it. I have a lot of people around me that believe in me, and I certainly dont want to fail them. I feel like every time I do music and step into a booth, I always have a chip on my shoulder because of my circumstances a college grad and its a lot of things going for me that arent really looked up to in the rap game. Theres a lot of proving in myself that I have to that myself and my team are ready for it. This show is very big Before speaking to you, I actually searched for your SoundCloud. Lonely Mind is my favorite out of the entire four tracks. Can you speak on that song? Lonely Mind draws on a couple of different relationships or experiences in the past that Ive had with women. They were something that had an impact in my life. Basically, I came up looking forward. Which I feel like this is a common threat in life and relationships where were hanging onto the past, and you cant get to the future by doing that. I wrote that third verse to tie everything together and to really explain where my heart was. I actually wrote that in one night and recorded it in one night on my second take, with that third verse. That third verse Whats the thing you miss most about UF and college life? (Field chuckles) All the people there. I miss my friends and people that I know Ill get to see when I come back in town. I desperately miss gamedays. Im staying for the Alabama game weekend, and I cant wait to have a gameday. You know theres just something about the games on gameday thats different than anywhere else. Ill be staying that weekend, and Ill chuckles) Do you have any advice for UF students who also want to jump into the hip-hop game but have doubts or are afraid? pretty guarded person growing up, for whatever reason. When you have something that you own, something that youre writing or music, theres a fear of putting yourself out there. Im learning a lot about that with people that Im working with. I Mind because thats pretty serious subject matter that not a lot of people knew about. I would say youve got to really do what you want to do. I wouldnt jump out of college and do something just because the moneys right. If you cant enjoy and see yourself doing it, it isnt right for you As far as music, a lot of people have fears about putting themselves out there, but youll never know until you try.

KIERA WRIGHT-RUIZAvenue Writer When I walk on campus, I can feel it. Theres excitement, hope for a victory and enough good company to air. Behind Broward Hall lies a tailgate like no other. Drinks are held high as Gator Tony makes a toast in memory of deceased friends and for a UF win. After almost 20 years, a legend has been made. It wouldnt be a football game if I didnt see Gator Tony, said Natalie Romano, a UF psychology senior. Anthony Gator Tony Burke, a 56-year-old who lives in Ocala, has been tailgating at the same place since 1993. He has been writing the toast before each game since 2008 after the founder, Robert Gator Bob Bishop, passed down the tradition. team, over the years they have also become a way to commemorate old friends. In 1994, the crew began toasting Gator Tom and Gator Sue, said 61-year-old Bob of Turkey Lane, Fla. In 1994, Bobs sister Susan Murphy died from cancer. In 1985, Tom Rymer died in a car accident. The two were both part of the original six-person football block started in 1979. I did not want people to forget Gator Tom and Gator Sue, Bob said. Bob ran out of ideas for toasts when he decided to elevate Tony to Gator status. The two have been friends for about 25 years, Bob said. I said, It was time for a change, the 1972 UF graduate said. The torch was passed. I do put in a guest appearance once in a while. Tony graduated from UF in 1977 with a bachelors degree in journalism. The toasts give him the chance to continue writing, he said. I try to be intelligent and cerebral a little bit, Tony said. Im not just going to be like, Roses are red, violets are blue. Were the Florida Gators, and were gonna beat you. On gamedays, tailgating is Tonys top priority, second only to the game, he said. Tailgating on campus allows Tony to reminisce. As you progress on your journey through life, things change, but one of the things that hasnt changed for me are going to those football games, he said. Theres still an invigoration that I get when I walk into the stadium, hear the crowd. Ive been doing that since I was 11 years old. Tony can trace Gator games back over periods of his life like when he was a kid, teenager, college student, newlywed and new father. Its always been the constant in my life, he said. games Tony attended. He still remembers Steve Spurrier Tony attends every game after he tailgates. While on an 18-year streak, he has only missed two games, one of which was in 2004 for his daughters wedding. hesitation. They better bring their A-game, he said. If they think theyre just going to walk in there and walk out with a win, theyre sadly mistaken. If Alabama thinks all they have to do to win is show up, then they will get beat. Check out one of Gator Tonys speeches below. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9Erin Turingan / Alligator Toasts and Tailgates: One mans Gator tailgating tradition Gator Tonys Speech vs. Troy University Why do they come back? Those boys from old Troy To do battle with the orange and the blue This one should be good For maybe a quarter, Before the Gators beat the Trojans to stew. Trojan dreams of a victory are quite premature And the notion that they can hang with the champs, Hey Trojans ... are you guys on acid? So dont be concerned if the Trojans appear ready, looking hard rock-ribbed standing tall But the Gators will certainly have everything covered, Theyre playing our game with our ball. So wolf down some breakfast, have a sip of champagne, raise a toast to Gator Tom and Gator Sue, Then follow us to the Swamp, and into the stands, where well cheer on the orange and the blue. In hundreds of games, Ive cheered for the Gators, For victory I know I have lust, But only today, Have I wished for a Trojan to bust. Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff It wouldnt be a football game if I didnt see Gator Tony.Natalie RomanoUF student Gator Tony peps up crowds with speeches

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 He Says She Says With Alabama rolling into town this week, it seems Bottom line: What makes He Said, She Said: What makes Southern charm so sexy? True Southern sex appeal isnt about the looks; its the personality that makes all the difference. Yes, ladies, you just read that cor rectly. A man just told you its not always about how attractive you are. We go to UF, where there are good-looking people all over the place. Any girl can throw on Southern garb and pretend to play the role of a hot Southern belle. Real Southern beauty is a lifestyle not a fashion trend. The girls who do Southern style right are the ones who dont try at all. Theyre naturally sweet with a hint of innocence. They arent afraid to get wild and have a good time but wont necessarily show it until the time is right. But more than anything, being Southern is about being polite and lovable. A real Southern belle is a lady born and bred below the Mason-Dixon line. This is what makes Southern charm so hard to ignore. Its that refreshing change of pace from the party-everynight types who act like everything is a popularity contest. Southern girls know who they are and how they look and are perfectly content with it. That, my friends, is sex appeal. JACOB ROMOSERWhat is it about Southern gentlemen that drive women wild? Is it their timeless chivalry? Their effortless combination of machismo and manners? Ladies, lets bring yall into this, too. Whats going on with the sex appeal in this heat? As I hit the pavement to uncover the mystery behind the provocative Southern je ne sais quoi, one characteristic stood out as the most titillating quality of Southerners: the accent. Ashley Lowery, a UF art history graduate student, encompasses this allure. Born and raised in the small town of Dalton, Ga., she epitomizes the expression peach with her bubbly personality, smiley disposition, long, naturally blonde locks and inviting Southern articulation. I often get complimented by my gentleman callers, and I have been guilty of using that fact to my advantage, she said. In turn, Southern men can be VERY sexy with their accents Blake Shelton, I am talking about you. But a solid Southern twang is not everyones cup of sweet tea. When I grew up in Georgia, I disowned my Southern-ness because of stereotypes, and my mamas insistence that I could not have my puddin until I pronounced the g at the end, she said. However, I have learned to own it and be proud of my accent, because it is as natural to me as a French accent is to a Frenchman. Self-acceptance now thats hot. KAY BEA

Photo courtesy to the AlligatorDevon Slabaugh models one of her designs from her gameday bow and dress line, Lucky Design. ARYANNA HARRELLAvenue WriterFrom figuring out where to buy the perfect Gator-chomping dress to deciding on a bow to finalize your outfit, finding the perfect gameday attire can sometimes prove challenging. Luckily, there are many gameday boutiques around the city that make it easy for trendy Gators to find that ideal look. Lindsay Leider, a 21-year-old UF retail associate at Allure Boutique, sees about 150 customers a week searching for the latest in Gator fashion. Allure Boutique, located at 3832 W. Newberry Road Suite 2-B, has one of the largest selections of orange and blue dresses in Gainesville. It is the only boutique in the city that sells Natalie Kim dresses, which are custom-fitted, handmade dresses specifically designed for college students. Kim comes to the boutique on Thursdays during gameday weeks between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to custom fit her customers dresses. Allure has Gator dresses, bags, shirts, shoes, jewelry, koozies, belts, jackets, buttons, headbands and bows. One could spend as little as $70 to get a stylish gameday outfit, according to Leider. Devon Slabaugh, a 20-year-old UF fashionista and Lauren Carey, a 20-year-old Florida State student, started a gameday bow and dress line called Lucky Design earlier this summer. Slabaugh handmakes Gatorinspired bows and dresses at her house, with bows starting at $5 and dresses starting at $50. Merchandise from the collection can be found at facebook.com/luckydesigndevonlauren.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 THE MAILBAGW elcome back. We have plenty of questions about this weekends game against No. 3 Alabama, so lets get right to them. @zachmoller: Whos your favorite master-padawan combo in college football coaching? We appreciate the chance to relive this weeks now-infamous exchange between Will Muschamp and a random television reporter that even made the rounds on ESPN, so thanks for that, Zach. As for your question, well go with Steve Spurrier and Bob Stoops. The defensive-minded Big Game Bob trained for three years under the Ol Ball Coach, an offensive genius. Together, the master and padawan truly brought balance to the Force. @CRainey4Heisman: Why is Chris Rainey still not getting any respect from Heisman voters? #RaineyforHeisman While Rainey has been all-world for Florida this season, you have to look at the bigger picture. There are plenty of other top-tier Heisman candidates out there right now. Theres Stanfords Andrew Luck, Baylors len Moore and those are just some of the quarterbacks. Rainey has been great, but hes still not even the best back in the Southeastern Conference. That honor belongs to Marcus Lattimore, who has more rushing yards, more total yards and more touchdowns than Rainey right now. @Jonsilman1: S hould I or should I not get my hopes up. Give it to me straight. You want it straight? We got you covered. No, you should not get your hopes up at least not this weekend. Sure, Florida has looked a lot more convincing en route to a 4-0 start this season than it did a year ago, but this is the same Alabama defense that held the Gators to six (six!) points last season. John Brantley has looked more comfortable in Charlie Weis offense than he did in Steve Addazios, but he and his receivers are largely untested. As a group, the Gators havent faced much adversity, so no one knows how they will respond with their backs against the wall or when they get punched in the mouth, so to speak. The Gators say they are closer this season than they were last, and that it should help them bounce back when they get knocked down, but until we see it, we wont know for sure how they respond. @PhilipGaryTalks: With two speedsters, two big backs, two FBs plus TEs to block... think 200 yards on the ground is possible? That will certainly be the idea, lowed just one 100-yard rusher in its last 50 games. The chance of Florida running up the yardage against the Tide defense, which features at least six or seven NFL prospects, is slim to none. Sure, Rainey is balling out of control and Demps has the reputation of being the fastest player in the history of the game, but the Bama D is something else. Florida needs to run the ball effectively to win the game, and its possible they do so, but 200plus is asking a lot. @AlligatorArmy: Who would ligator? Like all great debates of our generation, we turned to YouTube for an answer on this epic animal kingdom showdown. The best we could with an elephant, and to be honest, it was a split decision. The results were inconclusive, at best. tor does try an elephant, the reptile better come out on top, because an elephant never forgets. a tiger killing an alligator for next week. @bourbonmeyer: Think Jordan Reed or Trey Burton throws a pass against Bama? Weis did say Tuesday that he would throw the kitchen sink at Alabama this weekend and empty out his playbook. The real question is what is in Weis kitchen sink? We know Burton does have passing plays in this offense (he did so As for Reed, we wouldnt expect to see him attempt a pass against Alabama. He is coming off a lowerbody injury that has sidelined him the last couple of weeks, and we wouldnt expect Weis to add that wrinkle to the offense.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Were it not for Nick Saban, Will Muschamp might still be calling plays at Valdosta State. Thats where Floridas coach was working when the 2000 Peach Bowl. Muschamp only intended to catch up with Jimbo Fisher a friend who was the LSU offensive coordinator and now coaches at Florida State when he stepped into the Georgia Dome to observe a practice. Muschamp ended up chatting with Saban for about 20 minutes and said the two hit it off. When the job as linebackers coach opened up about a month and a half later, Muschamp interviewed with Saban and was promptly hired. I probably wouldnt be standing here today if it werent for the opportunity he gave me at LSU, Muschamp said Monday. A year later, Muschamp became the defensive coor dinator, and when Saban left to become the head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2005, Muschamp followed as assistant head coach for defense. Muschamp stayed with of his two-year tenure, accepting the defensive coor dinator position at Auburn in 2006. Will probably, of all the guys that we have had on our staff through the years, probably worked the hardest, did the best job, had the most passion, was probably as well liked by the players as anyone, Saban said. He did a great job for me for a long time. Working with Saban learned a great deal about total program management and building a team identity. Saban is also the source of Muschamps critical factors approach to recruiting a system of ranking prospects at each position by certain criteria. Muschamp said the familiarity between himself and Saban gives no advantage to either side. Still, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis thought it prudent to ask Muschamp for advice on dealing with Saban and defensive coordinator Kir by Smart. Although cut from the same mold, Muschamps defense wont be an exact replica of what Alabama brings to The Swamp. How Saban and Muschamp devise their schemes is based on personnel, generating clear differences between the two systems. But quarterback John Brantley said he sees similarities between the two in that each wants to confuse offenses with differ ent looks. Center Jonotthan Harrison said the Florida and Alabama defensive lines are similar in size and style. For all the two coaches have in common, Saban can point to one key differ ence. I cant jump up and down on the sidelines anymore like he does, I can tell you that, Saban said. Its been so long since Ive been a young guy that I cant even remember, but I was a little volatile at the time, too. I hope a little less volatile now. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. always one he highlights, even back in August before games were played. Muschamp has said, and players have echoed him, that the goal is to force three turnovers each game. We always try to put pressure on ourselves to get at least three or four turnovers a game, linebacker Jelani Jenkins said. Its always important. If you get three turnovers in a game, then chances are youre probably going to win the game. So far this season, Florida has forced seven turnovers on defense, while allowing seven on offense not exactly Muschamps formula for success. In wins against FAU and UAB, Florida posted a negative-2 margin. Against Tennessee and Kentucky, that number increased. Florida forced six turnovers four interceptions, two fumbles in wins against the Volunteers and Wildcats, and that number could have been higher if not for several dropped picks and another called back because of a pass interference penalty. Florida defensive tackle Omar Hunter said the defense has adjusted to Muschamps and Dan Quinns new scheme and is starting to hit its stride. Thats just the maturity of the defense everyone coming together, Hunter said. Early on other out, and when opportunities presented themselves we didnt take advantage of them.

UFs Gator Chomp was recently recognized by collegemagazine. com as one of the top 10 college football traditions. Ranked at No. 10, writer Danny Golden chose the Gator Chomp due to its intimidation factor when coupled with the Florida band playing the Jaws theme. Other traditions that made the list were the University of Geor gias bulldog, Uga; the Univer sity of Iowas pink locker room; the Auburn Universitys eagle dubbed the War Eagle; and the Armys/Navys march onto the dotting of the I by the sousaphone player in Ohio State Universitys band. The Gator Chomp is not only used in the stadium and UFs campus, but it is also used by people all over the world to show herself as a Gator fan.

Last year, only about nine students had been admitted during the fall semester. are contributing to this trend. How the increase is related to the Medical Amnesty Policy or other contributing factors has yet to be determined, he said. The Medical Amnesty Policy waives disciplinary action under certain conditions to ensure that students call medical support during alcohol, drug or other health emergencies. some time. Safety is the top priority for the university, Miller said. There were several close situations of students not getting the help they needed. At UF the protocol applies only to the UF Student Code of Conduct, Housing & Residence Educations Community Standards and Greek Life policies. Police may enforce laws within their jurisdictions under the state and federal law. Students considered by the Dean of Students Ofcounselors from GatorWell for a one-hour educational seminar, Miller said. History sophomore Charlie Vilmar, 19, is aware of the policy but wouldnt call the police unless absolutely necessary. I mean, if its a dire situation I would go to the hospital, Vilmar said. But otherwise, I keep track of my friends, and they keep track of themselves. With the upcoming football game on Saturday against Alabama, UPD said this increased trend of alcohol-related transports will not affect its policy. Gameday rules have not changed, Barber said.

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterAt the age of 48, John Kaplan was a Pulitzer-Prize winning photojournalist, a father of two and a journalism professor at UF. At the same age, he became a cancer patient. That word, cancer, can cut through you like a knife, he said. Shortly after being diagnosed in August 2008 with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a potentially deadly blood disease, Kaplan found an outlet for his pain, fears and hopes through his camera lens. Through photos and videos he took of himself, Kaplan documented his battle with cancer. Viewers of Kaplans tured, are privy to emotionally charged scenes, from his hair falling out in the shower and his painful bone marrow transplant to his wifes expression when his doctor told him he was in complete remission in 2008. The documentary is meant to inspire and give people hope, Kaplan said, by showing that many cancers are not the death sentences they once were but rather are treatable, and beatable, illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of cancer survivors in the United States has increased from 3 million in 1971 to 11.7 million in the most recent count. That may be the small nugget of courage [cancer patients] need said. its television debut in Gainesville gle Awards and several awards continues to grow, as does the number of lives it has touched. Kaplan has organized 450 lion homes. Kaplan is giving away 10,000 free copies of the DVD and its accompanying guide to coping with cancer for anyone who has been touched by cancer a disease that affects one in three Americans. As of Wednesday, Kaplan said he has given away about 4,600 copies to cancer patients, their friends and families, caregivers and medical professionals. The documentary is also being used as a teaching tool. After founding partnerships with organizations like the American Cancer Society and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, cal professionals across the United States to stress the important concept of humanism in medicine the idea that doctors should treat patients not just as charts and diagnoses but as individuals with feelings, hopes and fears, Kaplan said. campaign as a case study in his Social Media and Social Responsibility course at UF, a class that brings together writers, photographers, marketing and public relations students to create media campaigns to raise public awareness about issues like Type 1 diabetes. Kaplan said his students and colleagues at UF played some of the largest roles in his healing process. His doctors told him it was important to continue doing what he loved through his treatment. For Kaplan, that was teaching. Days after his diagnosis, Kaplan stood in front of his internaday of school and told them that he had cancer. But he was going to beat it, he said, and he would be there every day. teacher even though my body was on this rough roller coaster ride, he said. Being a professor here is As a professor, Kaplan tells his journalism students to stay away from clichs. Cancer stories, he used to say as a Pulitzer Prize judge, are always clichs. But when you get cancer, you dont feel like a clich, he said. You just want to beat it. Kaplan said he used to hope and pray every day that he would be able to end his documentary with a clich happy ending a shot of him holding his son in the air, saying the mantra that got him Three years later, thousands of Americans have watched the credits roll after that exact scene, and Kaplan is living happily ever after.

And yet, the moral fabric of American society is still intact. UF recently took a positive step toward destigmatizing the idea of underage drinking when it passed its alcohol-related medical amnesty policy. If students go to the hospital and are under the legal drinking age, they will receive treatment without facing disciplinary action from the university. This does not mean you should get black-out drunk all of the time, but in case you ever have one too many, you can feel safe going to a UF medical facility. This fall, there have been 13 UF students with alcohol-related emergencies, 5 of which were underage. Although this number is the highest for a fall semester since 2007, it is actually a good sign if students who otherwise would shy away from treatment are seeking medical attention for problems that could lead to serious illness or death. Of course, we all hear and make the argument that it is a little strange that we allow people 18 years or older to vote and die for our country, but deny them the ability to drink alcohol. But an even bigger argument for lowering the drinking age and removing the stigma from alcohol consumption has to do with health and safety. In most families, parents are afraid to discuss the idea of drinking with their children, but that could be changing. It is not because there are not enough ad campaigns telling par ents to talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol. Its because the government wants teenagers to be informed about alcohol consumption while denying them the ability to legally learn about it in the comfort of their own home. Parents can talk about the effects of drinking all day, but you wake up with one of the worst headaches you have ever had can teach you a lot more about the consequences of alcohol consumption. It is no wonder there are so many incidents of binge drinking and alcohol-related medical emergencies when underage students go to college. The fact of the matter is that some students will go to par ties where alcohol is present, and most will partake in the festivities. Lowering the drinking age and allowing students to expealong with guidance of experienced adults, can go a long way in reducing these problems. Bachmann should be taken with grain of saltShes radical. Shes outspoken. Shes amusing. Shes insane. Shes even moderately attractive. She is, quite simply, absolutely entertaining. But Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, while being all of those things, is also dangerous. Two weeks ago, at a Republican Party debate, a trivial issue was brought up by a few of the candidates. During his time as governor, Texas Gov. and GOP hopeful Rick Perry endorsed an executive order requiring girls entering the sixth grade to receive a vaccination against the human papillomavirus, an STD responsible for cervical cancer among women. Despite the fact that parents were able to opt out of the procedure with a simple form, the order was rejected by the Texas legislature. Its a black mark against Perry that has surfaced numer ous times during his campaign, particularly since it represents a government intrusion into private life. And if you believe Bachmanns claims, its also an action that would have jeopardized the mental health of countless young women. During the debate, Bachmann was clear. Perrys order was a government injection of innocent littlegirls. And the vaccine? A potentially dangerous drug. Following the debate, Bachmann went one step further, telling our beloved Fox News she had met an audience member who claimed to have a child who had suffered mental retardation as a result of the vaccination. The next day, Bachmanns claims were deemed so egregiously untruthful that the American Pediatric Association felt the need to step in with a press release stating that there If this all sounds eerily familiar, its because this is not the For years, actress Jenny McCarthy has been championing against vaccinations, claiming they resulted in the emer gence of autism in her own son and in countless other chilvaccines and autism. To be quite clear, vaccines do not cause mental retardation in children. They are not danger ous. They can and do save lives. Bachmann lied. In some ways, its not her fault. You dont blame a child for thinking Paul Revere rode his horse to scare away the British. Its not true, and somebody really needs to step in and give that child a more appropriate education. But its a single misguided kid. Theyre not responsible for spouting this nonsense because nobody expects them to be. the uninformed tea party cause, somebody else would be. The issue at hand is not that people like Bachmann exist. Theres no stopping that. Whats problematic is the fact that we pay attention to them. Sure, most of it is out of mockery. Bachmann is not a serious contender for the GOP nomination. Even Herman Cain is looking better than she is. We follow Bachmann in the news not because she could become our next president, but because we love hearing the absurd things that come out of her mouth. But theres a point where shameless entertainment segues into a legitimate cause for concern. For every one of us who wisely takes every single thing Bachmann says with a grain of salt, theres a person out there who heard her criticism of vaccinations and took her words to heart. Theres at least one mother out there who is now much less likely to vaccinate her daughter against a potentially deadly disease. By giving Bachmann a platform, weve given her the abilsociety. Her social conservatism, if it were to become public policy, would be detrimental to America. But simply listening to her state it might be just as bad.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Ever since I was a little kid, I have been told that plants needed Miracle-Gro to grow big and strong. While it is true that plants need nutrients to grow, chemical fertilizers are not the best choice to feed them. Fertilizers are Mother Natures drugs. Too much can lead her to O.D. Studies have shown that mass fertilizer use has led to a large loss in biodiversity due to runoff pollution. Runoff is danger ous for people and animals; it gets into our water supplies, causing sickness or death. For decades, the United States has used nitrogen-based fer tilizers, believing it would create the greatest growth in plants. However, scientists have found that runoff nitrogen can lead to dead zones in salt-water systems, where living creatures cannot survive. Still want big vegetables? There is a solution: compost. Compost improves the soils ability to hold nutrients and stabilizes soil pH. It can increase the water-holding capacity of sandy soils and reduce erosion and runoff. Compost also helps reduce plant-borne disease. The nutrients that are present in your compost are biodegradable and will not harm the environment. Composting is also very easy and cheap. The only effort needed is to put your food scraps in the pile or bucket. Once your scraps are decomposed, add it to your garden. Scientists have shown that compost gardens produce growth output similar to that of chemical fertilizers. It is hard to produce in bulk, but for those of you with home If we all change our behavior to use compost rather than chemical fertilizers, we can help save Mother Earth. Stop using chemical fertilizers. If you want to increase the size of your cucumber; compost it! Kimberly Johnston is a wildlife ecology and conservation senior at UF.Gardeners should use compost in place of chemical fertilizersGuest columnKimberly JohnstonSpeaking Out What do the Florida legislature, the Board of Trustees and Student Government have in common? cantly more in tuition, and each is responsible for votes that resulted in a 15-percent total increase just this year. The Editorial Board of the Alligator last week indicated that even our school newspaper believes making students pay more is smart policy, and we shouldnt feel entitled to an affordable education anyway. Less surprisingly, the UF College Republicans expressed similar enthusiasm for the hikes. The UF College Democrats couldnt disagree more. Affordable higher education is not a wasteful entitlement, but a smart investment. State-subsidized higher education greatly promotes social mobility, giving people the opportunity to contribute more to society than they may have otherwise. Making education less accessible translates into a waste of human capital, which is critical to the prosperity of advanced economies. The coupling of cuts to merit-based aid such as Bright Futures and tuition increases only further sets back the middle class, which largely does not have access to need-based aid. As public education in this state is strangled, it is becoming evident that the Republicans efforts to make this state more business-friendly is in fact making the outlook bleaker for thousands of young Floridians. Our leaders in Tallahassee have made their priorities clear: The interests of students and the middle class are not among them. Therefore, our defense of Bright Futures and condemn both the heavy tuition increases and constant cuts to education funding. Ford Dwyer is a political science and history junior at UF.

Its an amazing feeling to come back and see everyone, you know, to do a show like this. It lets me know that Im moving in the right At UF, you realized that you wanted to further pursue your music career. What triggered it for you? What made you come to that realization? Ive been writing music at a very young age, since 13. I acof messing around and for the fun of it, but my senior year I went back to it.

Lonely Mind is my favorite out of the entire four tracks. Can you speak on that song? Lonely Mind draws on a couple of different relationships or experiences in the past that Ive had with women. They were something that had an impact in my life. Basically, I came up looking forward. Which I feel like this is a common threat in life and relationships where were hanging onto the past, and you cant get to the future by doing that. I wrote that third verse to tie everything together and to really explain where my heart was. I actually wrote that in one night and recorded it in one night on my second take, with that third verse. That third verse Whats the thing you miss most about UF and college life? (Field chuckles) All the people there. I miss my friends and people that I know Ill get to see when I come back in town. I desperately miss gamedays. Im staying for the Alabama game weekend, and I cant wait to have a gameday. You know theres just something about the games on gameday thats different than anywhere else. Ill be staying that weekend, and Ill chuckles) Do you have any advice for UF students who also want to jump into the hip-hop game but have doubts or are afraid? pretty guarded person growing up, for whatever reason. When you have something that you own, something that youre writing or music, theres a fear of putting yourself out there. Im learning a lot about that with people that Im working with. I Mind because thats pretty serious subject matter that not a lot of people knew about. I would say youve got to really do what you want to do. I wouldnt jump out of college and do something just because the moneys right. If you cant enjoy and see yourself doing it, it isnt right for you As far as music, a lot of people have fears about putting themselves out there, but youll never know until you try.

KIERA WRIGHT-RUIZAvenue Writer When I walk on campus, I can feel it. Theres excitement, hope for a victory and enough good company to air. Behind Broward Hall lies a tailgate like no other. Drinks are held high as Gator Tony makes a toast in memory of deceased friends and for a UF win. After almost 20 years, a legend has been made. It wouldnt be a football game if I didnt see Gator Tony, said Natalie Romano, a UF psychology senior. Anthony Gator Tony Burke, a 56-year-old who lives in Ocala, has been tailgating at the same place since 1993. He has been writing the toast before each game since 2008 after the founder, Robert Gator Bob Bishop, passed down the tradition. team, over the years they have also become a way to commemorate old friends. In 1994, the crew began toasting Gator Tom and Gator Sue, said 61-year-old Bob of Turkey Lane, Fla. In 1994, Bobs sister Susan Murphy died from cancer. In 1985, Tom Rymer died in a car accident. The two were both part of the original six-person football block started in 1979. I did not want people to forget Gator Tom and Gator Sue, Bob said. Bob ran out of ideas for toasts when he decided to elevate Tony to Gator status. The two have been friends for about 25 years, Bob said. I said, It was time for a change, the 1972 UF graduate said. The torch was passed. I do put in a guest appearance once in a while. Tony graduated from UF in 1977 with a bachelors degree in journalism. The toasts give him the chance to continue writing, he said. I try to be intelligent and cerebral a little bit, Tony said. Im not just going to be like, Roses are red, violets are blue. Were the Florida Gators, and were gonna beat you. On gamedays, tailgating is Tonys top priority, second only to the game, he said. Tailgating on campus allows Tony to reminisce. As you progress on your journey through life, things change, but one of the things that hasnt changed for me are going to those football games, he said. Theres still an invigoration that I get when I walk into the stadium, hear the crowd. Ive been doing that since I was 11 years old. Tony can trace Gator games back over periods of his life like when he was a kid, teenager, college student, newlywed and new father. Its always been the constant in my life, he said. games Tony attended. He still remembers Steve Spurrier Tony attends every game after he tailgates. While on an 18-year streak, he has only missed two games, one of which was in 2004 for his daughters wedding. hesitation. They better bring their A-game, he said. If they think theyre just going to walk in there and walk out with a win, theyre sadly mistaken. If Alabama thinks all they have to do to win is show up, then they will get beat. Check out one of Gator Tonys speeches below. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9Erin Turingan / Alligator Toasts and Tailgates: One mans Gator tailgating tradition Gator Tonys Speech vs. Troy University Why do they come back? Those boys from old Troy To do battle with the orange and the blue This one should be good For maybe a quarter, Before the Gators beat the Trojans to stew. Trojan dreams of a victory are quite premature And the notion that they can hang with the champs, Hey Trojans ... are you guys on acid? So dont be concerned if the Trojans appear ready, looking hard rock-ribbed standing tall But the Gators will certainly have everything covered, Theyre playing our game with our ball. So wolf down some breakfast, have a sip of champagne, raise a toast to Gator Tom and Gator Sue, Then follow us to the Swamp, and into the stands, where well cheer on the orange and the blue. In hundreds of games, Ive cheered for the Gators, For victory I know I have lust, But only today, Have I wished for a Trojan to bust. Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff It wouldnt be a football game if I didnt see Gator Tony.Natalie RomanoUF student Gator Tony peps up crowds with speeches

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11 He Says She Says With Alabama rolling into town this week, it seems Bottom line: What makes He Said, She Said: What makes Southern charm so sexy? True Southern sex appeal isnt about the looks; its the personality that makes all the difference. Yes, ladies, you just read that correctly. A man just told you its not always about how attractive you are. We go to UF, where there are good-looking people all over the place. Any girl can throw on Southern garb and pretend to play the role of a hot Southern belle. Real Southern beauty is a lifestyle not a fashion trend. The girls who do Southern style right are the ones who dont try at all. Theyre naturally sweet with a hint of innocence. They arent afraid to get wild and have a good time but wont necessarily show it until the time is right. But more than anything, being Southern is about being polite and lovable. A real Southern belle is a lady born and bred below the Mason-Dixon line. This is what makes Southern charm so hard to ignore. Its that refreshing change of pace from the party-everynight types who act like everything is a popularity contest. Southern girls know who they are and how they look and are perfectly content with it. That, my friends, is sex appeal. JACOB ROMOSERWhat is it about Southern gentlemen that drive women wild? Is it their timeless chivalry? Their effortless combination of machismo and manners? Ladies, lets bring yall into this, too. Whats going on with the sex appeal in this heat? As I hit the pavement to uncover the mystery behind the provocative Southern je ne sais quoi, one characteristic stood out as the most titillating quality of Southerners: the accent. Ashley Lowery, a UF art history graduate student, encompasses this allure. Born and raised in the small town of Dalton, Ga., she epitomizes the expression peach with her bubbly personality, smiley disposition, long, naturally blonde locks and inviting Southern articulation. I often get complimented by my gentleman callers, and I have been guilty of using that fact to my advantage, she said. In turn, Southern men can be VERY sexy with their accents Blake Shelton, I am talking about you. But a solid Southern twang is not everyones cup of sweet tea. When I grew up in Georgia, I disowned my Southern-ness because of stereotypes, and my mamas insistence that I could not have my puddin until I pronounced the g at the end, she said. However, I have learned to own it and be proud of my accent, because it is as natural to me as a French accent is to a Frenchman. Self-acceptance now thats hot. KAY BEA

Photo courtesy to the AlligatorDevon Slabaugh models one of her designs from her gameday bow and dress line, Lucky Design. ARYANNA HARRELLAvenue WriterFrom figuring out where to buy the perfect Gator-chomping dress to deciding on a bow to finalize your outfit, finding the perfect gameday attire can sometimes prove challenging. Luckily, there are many gameday boutiques around the city that make it easy for trendy Gators to find that ideal look. Lindsay Leider, a 21-year-old UF retail associate at Allure Boutique, sees about 150 customers a week searching for the latest in Gator fashion. Allure Boutique, located at 3832 W. Newberry Road Suite 2-B, has one of the largest selections of orange and blue dresses in Gainesville. It is the only boutique in the city that sells Natalie Kim dresses, which are custom-fitted, handmade dresses specifically designed for college students. Kim comes to the boutique on Thursdays during gameday weeks between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to custom fit her customers dresses. Allure has Gator dresses, bags, shirts, shoes, jewelry, koozies, belts, jackets, buttons, headbands and bows. One could spend as little as $70 to get a stylish gameday outfit, according to Leider. Devon Slabaugh, a 20-year-old UF fashionista and Lauren Carey, a 20-year-old Florida State student, started a gameday bow and dress line called Lucky Design earlier this summer. Slabaugh handmakes Gatorinspired bows and dresses at her house, with bows starting at $5 and dresses starting at $50. Merchandise from the collection can be found at facebook.com/luckydesigndevonlauren.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2011 THE MAILBAGW elcome back. We have plenty of questions about this weekends game against No. 3 Alabama, so lets get right to them. @zachmoller: Whos your favorite master-padawan combo in college football coaching? We appreciate the chance to relive this weeks now-infamous exchange between Will Muschamp and a random television reporter that even made the rounds on ESPN, so thanks for that, Zach. As for your question, well go with Steve Spurrier and Bob Stoops. The defensive-minded Big Game Bob trained for three years under the Ol Ball Coach, an offensive genius. Together, the master and padawan truly brought balance to the Force. @CRainey4Heisman: Why is Chris Rainey still not getting any respect from Heisman voters? #RaineyforHeisman While Rainey has been all-world for Florida this season, you have to look at the bigger picture. There are plenty of other top-tier Heisman candidates out there right now. Theres Stanfords Andrew Luck, Baylors len Moore and those are just some of the quarterbacks. Rainey has been great, but hes still not even the best back in the Southeastern Conference. That honor belongs to Marcus Lattimore, who has more rushing yards, more total yards and more touchdowns than Rainey right now. @Jonsilman1: S hould I or should I not get my hopes up. Give it to me straight. You want it straight? We got you covered. No, you should not get your hopes up at least not this weekend. Sure, Florida has looked a lot more convincing en route to a 4-0 start this season than it did a year ago, but this is the same Alabama defense that held the Gators to six (six!) points last season. John Brantley has looked more comfortable in Charlie Weis offense than he did in Steve Addazios, but he and his receivers are largely untested. As a group, the Gators havent faced much adversity, so no one knows how they will respond with their backs against the wall or when they get punched in the mouth, so to speak. The Gators say they are closer this season than they were last, and that it should help them bounce back when they get knocked down, but until we see it, we wont know for sure how they respond. @PhilipGaryTalks: With two speedsters, two big backs, two FBs plus TEs to block... think 200 yards on the ground is possible? That will certainly be the idea, lowed just one 100-yard rusher in its last 50 games. The chance of Florida running up the yardage against the Tide defense, which features at least six or seven NFL prospects, is slim to none. Sure, Rainey is balling out of control and Demps has the reputation of being the fastest player in the history of the game, but the Bama D is something else. Florida needs to run the ball effectively to win the game, and its possible they do so, but 200plus is asking a lot.  @AlligatorArmy: Who would ligator? Like all great debates of our generation, we turned to YouTube for an answer on this epic animal kingdom showdown. The best we could with an elephant, and to be honest, it was a split decision.

Weis did say Tuesday that he would throw the kitchen sink at Alabama this weekend and empty out his playbook. The real question is what is in Weis kitchen sink? We know Burton does have passing plays in this offense (he did so As for Reed, we wouldnt expect to see him attempt a pass against Alabama. He is coming off a lowerbody injury that has sidelined him the last couple of weeks, and we wouldnt expect Weis to add that wrinkle to the offense.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Were it not for Nick Saban, Will Muschamp might still be calling plays at Valdosta State. Thats where Floridas coach was working when the 2000 Peach Bowl. Muschamp only intended to catch up with Jimbo Fisher a friend who was the LSU offensive coordinator and now coaches at Florida State when he stepped into the Georgia Dome to observe a practice. Muschamp ended up chatting with Saban for about 20 minutes and said the two hit it off. When the job as linebackers coach opened up about a month and a half later, Muschamp interviewed with Saban and was promptly hired. I probably wouldnt be standing here today if it werent for the opportunity he gave me at LSU, Muschamp said Monday. A year later, Muschamp became the defensive coor dinator, and when Saban left to become the head coach of the Miami Dolphins in 2005, Muschamp followed as assistant head coach for defense. Muschamp stayed with of his two-year tenure, accepting the defensive coor dinator position at Auburn in 2006. Will probably, of all the guys that we have had on our staff through the years, probably worked the hardest, did the best job, had the most passion, was probably as well liked by the players as anyone, Saban said. He did a great job for me for a long time. Working with Saban learned a great deal about total program management and building a team identity. Saban is also the source of Muschamps critical factors approach to recruiting a system of ranking prospects at each position by certain criteria. Muschamp said the familiarity between himself and Saban gives no advantage to either side. Still, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis thought it prudent to ask Muschamp for advice on dealing with Saban and defensive coordinator Kir by Smart. Although cut from the same mold, Muschamps defense wont be an exact replica of what Alabama brings to The Swamp. How Saban and Muschamp devise their schemes is based on personnel, generating clear differences between the two systems. But quarterback John Brantley said he sees similarities between the two in that each wants to confuse offenses with differ ent looks. Center Jonotthan Harrison said the Florida and Alabama defensive lines are similar in size and style. For all the two coaches have in common, Saban can point to one key differ ence. I cant jump up and down on the sidelines anymore like he does, I can tell you that, Saban said. Its been so long since Ive been a young guy that I cant even remember, but I was a little volatile at the time, too. I hope a little less volatile now.

Muschamp has said, and players have echoed him, that the goal is to force three turnovers each game. We always try to put pressure on ourselves to get at least three or four turnovers a game, linebacker Jelani Jenkins said. Its always important. If you get three turnovers in a game, then chances are youre probably going to win the game. So far this season, Florida has forced seven turnovers on defense, while allowing seven on offense not exactly Muschamps formula for success. In wins against FAU and UAB, Florida posted a negative-2 margin. Against Tennessee and Kentucky, that number increased. Florida forced six turnovers four interceptions, two fumbles in wins against the Volunteers and Wildcats, and that number could have been higher if not for several dropped picks and another called back because of a pass interference penalty. Florida defensive tackle Omar Hunter said the defense has adjusted to Muschamps and Dan Quinns new scheme and is starting to hit its stride. Thats just the maturity of the defense everyone coming together, Hunter said. Early on other out, and when opportunities presented themselves we didnt take advantage of them. Were starting to do that now. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.

Everybody (is) staying together and helping a teammate, picking them up and letting them know that if youre down we can pick it back up, the games not over. That did not happen last year, as Alabama cruised to a 31-6 win. More talking: Quinn said his players are getting better at communicating when opposing offenses line up. In particular, he praised sophomore safety Matt Elam, who is tasked with calling pre-snap adjustments for all the defensive backs. There were two or three times in the Kentucky game where it showed up and we thought, That was cool, Quinn said. Hes taken the next step as a player. all of Floridas young defensive backs.

Evans said cer tain members of the unit have been instructed to stay back instead of rushing the kicker, just in case McCarron pulls the ball back. Simple but effective: Quinn said the Crimson Tides running attack isnt complex. The talent, however, will prove to be I wouldnt say its a function of a lot of styles of runs, he said.
