MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 MARIA GALINDOAlligator Contributing WriterThe Murphree Area has got meat. More than 250 students and alumni gathered around the Murphree Commons Courtyard from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday to enjoy about 200 sausages, 80 hotdogs and 50 veggie burgers. The Murphree Area Council and the areas RAs served the sausage at the annual SausageFest. The cookout was free and open to the public, but participants could pur chase T-shirts for $10 and pie RAs in the face for $1 to help raise money for the Humane Society. Organizers raised about $150, according to Joey Prusa, SausageFest committee chairman and Murphree RA. This is a good time for the residents of Murphree area and all of their friends to come out, enjoy the nice weather and participate in a tradition thats eight years strong, said Mur phree Area Residence Life Coordinator Matt Scruggs. Visitors splashed around in the biggest water slide in the history of SausageFest, and they enjoyed a new addition to the event: snow cones. As for the sausage, it was, as described by psychology sophomore Claudia Noah as she took a bite from a freshly grilled link, awesome. For the complete story, visit alligator.org.RAs serve it up hot at annual SausageFest MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE STRIPPED DOWN TO PARTICIPATE. MINA RADMANAlligator WriterGet ready. Drop clothes. Run. The Great Underwear Dash took off at lightning speed on campus Friday night as participants stripped down to their underwear and dashed from Turlington Plaza. They avoided running into cars and received hoots and hollers from people in midtown as they ran down University Avenue, turned around at Buckman Drive and ended back in Turlington. More than 1,000 people attended the run, which has been a semi-annual school tradition underwear dash in 2005. Event organizer Josh Kelley, a 20-year-old mathematics junior, said tallying the number of At 11:30 p.m., participants threw their clothes into a large pile and took off running. The clothing will be donated to the Student Alumni Association Operation Cover-up Gainesville campaign. Some girls wore sports bras and shorts and Victorias Secret lacy underwear ensembles, and guys donned colorful boxers and man-thongs. Greg Accocella, an 18-year-old psychology freshman, wore a pair of pink, heart-designed boxer shorts and a purple Victorias Secret bra, which he borrowed from some of his female friends. It looks dead sexy, Accocella said. Ive been receiving a lot of compliments. Sophia Akhiyat, a 20-year-old biology junior, wore a neon-green body suit and a Bud Light Lime box on her head with holes cut in it so she could see. I didnt actually drink it, she said. It was green and at my friends apartment, so I wore it. Kelly Youngquest, a 21-year-old general education student at Edison State College, traveled from Punta Gorda, Fla., to attend. Youngquest and her friends rode their unicycles instead of running. Eighteen-year-old freshmen Justin Kelsey, a business management major, and Jacob Turner, a biology major, lit the way for the crowd by wear ing yellow hard hats, bow-ties and man-thongs with a shining light attached. We wanted to lead the pack, Kelsey said.

What the Editorial Board fails to understand is why SG ofas anything but problematic. Voting in District E increased by more than 800 percent this semester (535 votes) compared to last fall (65 votes). Steven Bourdon, systems administrator of SG and the Reitz Union, said this event was nothing more than an anomaly. Clearly, it is much more than that. the problem. According to Fridays edition of the Alligator, If students were placed in District E, their voting screens Tuesday morning would have indicated that. The page also listed each ZIP code not included in District E. Students who noticed zoning dresses. In other words, the burden was placed on students to ensure they actually lived in a District E ZIP code. Fair elections should never place the burden on the voter to ensure that the information is correct. SG Supervisor of Elections Toni Megna told the Alligator any students that go [to the SG website to check their district] are the ones that are interested in being educated voters. Well, that didnt sound condescending. You cannot expect that every voter will check to make sure he or she is voting in the correct district before the election. tion or corruption in SG. The main problem with this whole issue is nothing but pure laziness. Any responsible governing body would admit that a misBy blaming the voters and playing off the entire situation as an ness and equity of the election process. Instead of completely trying to push the situation under the rug, the Unite Party should have come out in favor of investigating these results with a louder voice than the Students Party. That would have been a responsible public relations move, shining a new light on the party commonly accused of corruption. Instead, the Unite Party opted to try to hush the entire situation and is looking to validate the results on Tuesday. Party members just want to move on with their lives as if nothing happened. As we said in Fridays Darts and Laurels, what harm would there be in checking the results? The Unite Party would have swept the elections either way, but at least it could have done so with a clear conscience. Social Security depletes government fundsA few weeks ago, presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry called Social Security a Ponzi scheme and was labeled as a far-right extremist. While his choice of words was indelicate, Social Security form for anyone in college right now. Social Security payments account for about 21 percent of all government spending. Though its trust fund is not because the government routinely borrows from the fund to pay for other budgetary items. In other words, if the bond markets ever decide to punish us for having such a high debt to gross domestic product ratio, Social Security Trust money is not as safe as it is purported to be. When the program was started in 1935, citizens started cy was 66. This demographic reality meant the program was essentially an insurance program against living much longer than the rest of the population. Social Security was able to pull countless seniors out of poverty and gave them the assurance that the government would help take care of them in the midst of a depression. If you judge a program by how well it achieved its objectives, this version of Social Security worked. Now the average life expectancy is 77.8. Social Security has gone from an old-age insurance program to a national pension. Billions of dollars in taxes are taken out of productive use to be forcibly lent to the government so people who failed to plan adequately for their retirement can be taken care of. Furthermore, Social Security is, indirectly, a wealth redistribution program from black males to white females. I use this example because, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average life expectancy for black males is 70.2, and for white females its 80.6. White women can expect to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars more than other demographic groups because of their gene pool. Moreover, black males tend to be more economically disadvantaged than white females, making the payroll tax used to fund it quite regressive. Social Security pays out disability claims on top of pensions. cently, I watched a woman on Divorce Court brag about how she made more money in child support and her sons Social Security disability payments than her husband did working at his construction job. While I was waiting to pick up a prescription at Walgreens, I discovered after chatting with a man in line that he was on full Social Security disability for a back injury he sustained in construction. Instead of working a less physical job, he is now on the governments welfare roll for the rest of his life. In total, 8 million people receive Social Security disthese people are so incapacitated that they cannot work in some form of a job. Besides disability payments, children of seniors receive hundreds of dollars a month just for existing. This path is clearly unsustainable. Our generation must prepare for a lower standard of living because of the payments demanded by the generations above us. Eventually interest payments on the debt will force us to make hard decisions that wont involve elders alive today. The federal government currently spends $7 on the elderly for every $1 it spends on those under 18. This imbalance is pathetic. America can continue to be the most powerful country in the world, but we must accept that attempts to promote equality limit future growth, lowering everyones standard of living in the long run. Regardless of if it means raising the retirement age, making participation in Social Security optional, or allowing some form of private investment accounts, something must be done so that our future government has money to Travis Hornsby is a statistics and economics senior.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The term big government has been loosely bandied about for several decades. Certainly it has been used to entities, something that now not only disturbs many of those in the higher tax bracket but also many people hurting in todays staggering economy. During this presidential election year, as in others in the recent past, Republicans especially will use these words in hopes of getting votes. Some might call it scare tactics designed to trick the white poor and middle-class to actually vote against their own interests through fear. How many dollars spent and governmental programs are too many, and where should one draw the line? Is it too expensive to provide every American who needs assistance with basic necessities like food, shelter, education and health care? Is this what makes government too big, and is this where we are going wrong? Although many people would be hard-pressed to really dethey will hear this phrase and immetoward Democrats and those who receive some kind of governmental assistance. But the question that should naturally occur to any thoughtful person is: What does the phrase big government really mean? Try posing that question to your average anti-big-government tea party enthusiast. An awkward moment may follow that question because many tea party members would probably be showing strain on their faces in an effort to do something quite different from engaging in their usual blind rage: namely, critical thinking. It just seems to me, to borrow a phrase from George Carlin, that the American people should not be worried about big government but rather corrupt government. I dont know about you, but government used against the interests of the general population for the gain of a few wealthy interests is indeed cor rupt. One needs to look no further than tax loopholes that entaxes and the military industrial complex. The American people should really start thinking critically about how they have been manipulated to vote against their own interests through the brainwashing box called the television that hasnt reported real news since the retirement of Edward R. Murrow. Yes, thats an exaggeration, but it is nonetheless closer to the truth than how politicians and greedy cor porate interests have deceptively used the phrase big government to procure what they want from the corrupt system. Yes, corrupt government is more like it. Corrupt government means a government used by interests outside the interests of the American people for the purposes of corporate greed. Government should be as big as it needs to be. No less and no more. Greg Allard is a journalism senior at UF.Corrupt government a bigger threat than big governmentGuest columnGreg AllardSpeaking Out Since the s, its been a common rightwing practice to have a bake sale intended to demonstrate the inherent unfairness of using race as a factor in college admissions. White men get charged $2 baked to prove their point, while other races get charged a sliding scale based on the Republican protesters perception of the sever ity of racial bias against different groups. For instance, women might get discounts of 25 cents, Asians 50 cents, blacks a whole dollar, and Native Americans would get the baked goods for free. Never mind the strange hierarchy of discrimination (or repressed guilt); this doesnt make sense even if you are a pro-market ideologue. Heres why: A fair market value is how much a willing seller and a willing purchaser will agree to exchange. This is the basis of arms-length business dealings, and it is ideally how things are priced. But arms-length doesnt imply blind, and a smart baker will charge different prices to different people based on their ability to pay. Any white person who has traveled to Africa is familiar with this concept. While living in Tanzania, I frequently attempted to bargain with stall vendors. I had some successes in price offered. But I could never, even as my Swahili improved, get close to the prices that my Tanzanian friends paid. And I noticed that even among my Tanzanian friends, prices werent equal. Most stall vendors appeared to have a miraculous intuitive grasp of how much money another Tanzanian per son had, and rich Tanzanians, though they never paid as much as I did, paid more than their poorer counterparts. It makes sense from the stall vendors should sell all that he can at whatever margin he can and not wait to make a sale at the best price. Yes, you might argue, but someone might undercut him and sell at a lower price right? And surely rich people should be demanding this, right? Of course this happens. tive action? To start, college admissions are not essentially an exchange process. If the only thing universities were thinking about in the admissions process was their endowments, they would only admit the richest students because not only is wealth a good predictor of academic success, it is also a good predictor of future wealth. The problem with viewing universities admission policies through an exchange lens is that they have values that have nothing to do with exchange. They seek to recreate and improve society, to grow goodwill and to protect their public image, and they often have a have a social agenda that values a diverse learning environment. To go back to the original metaphor, universities see it as part of their job to make sure that brownies are available to everyone. From a universitys perspective, it makes perfect sense to lower barriers for people whose admission will help them further promote these other goals. Seen in this light, you could even say that it was fair. Furthermore, even if universities used a strict merit approach, not every university course, it would make sense to have different spots. But the Supreme Court has made it clear that universities cant have race-based set-asides. The court has taken the view that any government action that is based upon race (as opposed to merely considering race) is precluded by the Constitution. If this seems like a strange reading of the Fourteenth Amendments (thats the amendment that made ex-slaves citizens) equal protections clause to you, dont worry; you arent alone. But, the argument goes, if the school had used a strict approach, someone else would have gotten in and deserved it more. The argument forgets that a university has other values besides numbers and that universities know from experience that the numbers dont always prove merit; they ofThe bottom line is that universities admissions people should consider race in admissions just like they should consider class, geography and a multitude of other qualities. If they didnt, they wouldnt be doing their jobs.

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterPonce de Leon is dead. The Spanish conquistadors death knell has been scribbled onto the backs of at least seven chairs in Turlington Hall along with announcements that the Chamber of Secrets has been opened and someone named Will was at one time present. Students in Weimer Halls Gannett Auditorium attend the University of Flopida, according to the sign on the lectern, while students at Library West publicly bemoan their lack of friends, lack of sex lives or lack of knowledge of organic chemistry on the study carrels and tables throughout the library. Though most of the vandalism is minor a fraternity name here, a heart and initials there it has accumulated over the years. I think expression is essential, said Cary Putnal, a 24-year-old philosophy junior. Sometimes it can even be helpful or inspirational. Chairs in Little Hall boast math theorems, and Putnal said a running debate on chaos and control can be found in a mens bathroom in Matherly. Hes also found the line All power to the imagination scrawled on a bathroom stall in the Reitz Union. Theres a big distinction bemindless stuff, said Steven Kanner, a 20-year-old environmental science junior. Others, like economics major Matthew Schaler and mechanical and aerospace engineering major Kyle Gooding, both 20-year-old juniors, think the mindless stuff can add a little something to a class, even if its just a smile. Stuff like a supply-and-demand graph on another Matherly bathroom stall analyzing the cost of, well, whatevers produced in a bathroom stall. Curtis Reynolds, assistant vice president of the UF Physical Plant Division, said there arent any routine checks for vandalism of campus buildings. Signs and desks are replaced once they are no longer functional and on an as-needed basis, he said. Reporting those types of incidents is the responsibility of the college or department that owns the building. Reynolds said if an act of vandalism is considered to be particularly defacing or debilitating, the University Police Department should be notiHe said hes not aware of much vandalism on campus, and there havent been any recent incidents that have required police involvement. I think the students who come to our university take a level of pride in their campus and their facilities, he said. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 Maggie Powers / AlligatorFound in Turlington Hall, this declaration is an example of vandalism found across campus.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Brantley-Driskel Dynamic Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Poll Results See Stories Online at alligatorSports.org. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffQuarterback John Brantley left Saturdays game late in the second quarter with a reported ankle sprain and did not return. Freshman Jeff Driskel replaced him and played the second half. FRESHMAN JEFF DRISKEL WOULD START AGAINST LSU IF BRANTLEY CANT PLAY. TYLER JETT When John Brantley entered the locker room prematurely, Floridas underlying fears bubbled to the surface. The adversity came on a Saturday night in front of a national TV audiand Brantley had just absorbed a body blow, a KO. The Saturday, of course, was two weeks ago a 48-10 victory at Kentucky. The injury Brantley sustained did minimal damage a hard hit to the midsection. He was only held out for much of the rest of the game as a precaution. The opponent was, after all, Kentucky. Florida was already up by three touchdowns. Still, that moment raised questions. What would happen if Brantley was knocked out for good? Was his backup, freshman Jeff Driskel, prepared to face Alabama in the Southeastern Conworld in Jeff, coach Will Muschamp said after the Kentucky game. All the for 30 minutes Saturday, as Driskel took all of Floridas snaps in the second half. For the second week in a row, Brantley exited a game with an injury. This time, the injury appears more serious. Dropping back on a third-and-20 with 45 seconds left in the half, Brantley was hit from the blind side by Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw. Brantleys right leg bent back as he was slammed to the ground, and the quarterback was noticeably in pain as soon as he hit the grass. The extent of the injury was not known Saturday night Muschamp only let on it was to Brantleys lower leg but reports have surfaced that he suffered a high ankle sprain. Driskel entered the stage facing a 24a mix of anxiety and excitement. As a senior at Oviedo Hagerty High, Driskel was the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the nation, according to Rivals.com. At the same time, he is still a freshman prodigy or not and he was staring down the No. 3 defense in the nation. In those 30 minutes at Florida Field, Driskel looked far from the hyped quarterback of the future. In those 30 minutes, Floridas offense managed Driskel threw for 14 yards on six Brantley injured against Crimson Tide, status in doubtsSEE bBRaANTlLEY, Pa A GE 16 GREG LUCAAfter four weeks of dominating inferior opponents, the Florida rushing attack ran into a buzz saw against Alabama. The senior running back duo of Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps aver month of the season, but combined for just 8 against the Crimson Tide. It was very frustrating, Demps said. It was hard to really get in the groove [Saturday], so well just kind of slow it down. Were just going to look at it as motivation from here on out. The Gators ran for minus-17 yards Only a 31-yard rush by freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel kept UFs rushing total in the black. Coach Will Muschamp said Alabamas large lead and the injury to senior quar terback John Brantley made it more and effectively. contests allowed Demps and Rainey to carry the ball 24.3 times per game, ited them to a combined 14 carries. The stout performance was Bama defense stymies Florida running backsTHEE TOM GREEN shoSHO WWill Muschamp said it best Saturday night: The Gators simply got beat by a better team. No. 17 Florida came out swinging against No. 2 Alabama in The Swamp, but the over matched Gators just couldnt withstand the blows from a true heavyweight team. Alabama was bigger, stronger and more physical than Florida in a 38-10 blowout, controlling the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The Tide did to Florida what Florida did to FAU, UAB, Tennessee and Kentucky, showing the Gators they arent among the nations elite right now. rush defense look nonexistent, as Trent Richardson plowed over defenders and through arm tackles, dragging Gators for yards at a time en route to a career day. But what Richardson and Alabamas offense did Saturday night shouldnt be Floridas biggest concern, nor should the injury to quarterback John Brantleys knee, or ankle, or whatever part of his right leg bent the wrong way in the second quar ter. The Gators biggest concern after a demor alizing loss to the Tide (again) should be the teams inability to run the ball against a good defense. Which quarterback takes the snaps in the Florida offense doesnt matter so much as the success of the guys who take the handoffs, and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said as much after Floridas season opener against FAU. With Florida up big in that game, and the outcome well in hand, Jeff Driskel relieved Brantley because the coaches said they wanted to get him meaningful playing time. But the Gators rarely threw the ball with Driskel in the game because Weis wanted to pound the rock. mouth team, and Weis wanted to make sure sSEE NNOTE TEBOOK, Pa A GE 16s SEE TTOM, Pa A GE 16 UF Fo otball TT om GGreen 64% YEYES 36% NNO414 total votes

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Tom Green and Maegan Dennis / Alligator StaffLoss to Crimson Tide second worst at home in last 30 years of the game. But even with Brantley, the Gators didnt have much of a chance at stopping Alabama and Richardson. He ran through Gators defenders all evening, totaling a career-high 181 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries. After the game, Florida defenders could do nothing but level praise Richardsons way. Hes a tough running back, thats why hes a Heisman candidate, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Give him a lot of credit, he did a great job, him and his offensive line. Said linebacker Jelani Jenkins: going to see at the next level. Defensive tackle Jaye Howard was also impressed, calling Richardson a great player, and saying, it takes more than one person to bring him down. Leading up to the game, Muschamp and seemingly every player on the Florida defense talked about the importance of tackling. They talked about how impressive Richardson was with the ball in his hands. Muschamp said, without question, the combination of Richardson and fellow running back Eddie Lacy would be the toughest test the Gators young defense had seen. They were right. It was a matter of missed tackles, defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd said. We got to do a better job of wrapping up and swarming to the ball. Even when the defenders appeared to have Richardson wrapped up, which wasnt often, the bruising back eluded their grasp. Early in the fourth quarter of a two-score game, Howard was in the ardson for a loss. But Richardson cut left, shaking the arm tackle from Howard, and galloped into the end zone to put the game out of reach at 31-10. Alabama coach Nick Saban attributed the win and success of Richardson to the offensive line. An experienced unit returning four starters from a season ago, the Crimson Tide offensive line was in command from the start. Howard admitted as much after ward. The defensive line, we didnt control the line of scrimmage, Howard said. There were times we looked good, and there were times when they ran right through us. We got to come back and correct that. As a team, the Crimson Tide racked up 226 yards on the ground just 4 yards shy of the 230-yard average with which they entered the game, trailing only Flor ida for best in the conference. But the Gators ran for just 15 yards in the second-worst loss at home in the last 30 years. Saturdays 28-point loss is behind only the 36-7 defeat against LSU in 2002. Saban was the coach in both. Alabama is now 8-2 in The Swamp the best record of any SEC opponent. We put so much into this one, Hunter said. I really wanted it. I feel like I put everything in this offseason just for this game. ... To come up short is disappointing, but well get through it. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.

Second-place Virginia Tech allows 58.2 yards per game. We heard a lot about their offense and it being number one, and their running game is supposed to be the best, Alabama senior linebacker Courtney Upshaw said.

Brantley hit him in stride and Debose did the rest, strolling into the end zone for a 65of his career. The single catch more than doubled Deboses yardage total for the season. 64 yards. Debose left Floridas game against Tennessee due to injury and did not play against Kentucky, but Muschamp liked what he saw from him in practice. Andres done a good job, Muschamp said. Hes practiced hard. Very pleased with his progress. Saunders suspended: season, freshman safety DeAnte Pop Saunders did not start Saturday. Muschamp said Saunders was suspended for violating team rules and that hed be back next week. Junior Josh Evans started in his place.

He fumbled a snap. Floridas offensive ineptitude put too much weight on its renewed defense, which stopped Alabama on three straight drives in the second half, though, the defense eventually wore out, not that players blamed the new quarterback. We have faith in Driskel; its not like he went in and everybody put their heads down, defensive end Sharrif Floyd said. No, its not like that. Weve seen Driskel. We know what Driskel can do. That was the theme among players after This week, Florida faces LSU the No. 9 defense in the nation. If Driskel has to start, the Gators are cool with that. We tell him all the time, We trust you, man, so just go out there and be you, wide receiver Andre Debose said. Driskels a great player. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. bBRaANTlLEY, from page 14his offense would be able to run it when it absolutely needed to. Well, the Gators needed to run it Saturday and they werent able to at all. Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps, who have done everything on offense for Florida this season, were swallowed by a hungry Alabama defense. Alabama dominated Floridas offensive line, limiting the Gators to half a yard per carry on 29 attempts and recording three sacks on the night. The holes created for there Saturday night, and Demps and Rainey couldnt break runs to the outside because of Alabamas team speed. Floridas run game worked cause the Gators were bigger and the running backs were faster. That wasnt the case against Alabama. It wont be the case against No. 1 LSU this weekend. It might not even be the case against the remaining teams on the Gators schedule, outside of Furman and Vanderbilt. While Alabama was clearly the superior team in The Swamp, if Florida cant establish itself in the running peating his opening statement from Saturday. We got beat by a better team tonight.

In other words, the burden was placed on students to ensure they actually lived in a District E ZIP code. Fair elections should never place the burden on the voter to ensure that the information is correct. SG Supervisor of Elections Toni Megna told the Alligator any students that go [to the SG website to check their district] are the ones that are interested in being educated voters.

Any responsible governing body would admit that a misBy blaming the voters and playing off the entire situation as an ness and equity of the election process. Instead of completely trying to push the situation under the rug, the Unite Party should have come out in favor of investigating these results with a louder voice than the Students Party. That would have been a responsible public relations move, shining a new light on the party commonly accused of corruption. Instead, the Unite Party opted to try to hush the entire situation and is looking to validate the results on Tuesday. Party members just want to move on with their lives as if nothing happened. As we said in Fridays Darts and Laurels, what harm would there be in checking the results? The Unite Party would have swept the elections either way, but at least it could have done so with a clear conscience. Social Security depletes government fundsA few weeks ago, presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry called Social Security a Ponzi scheme and was labeled as a far-right extremist. While his choice of words was indelicate, Social Security form for anyone in college right now. Social Security payments account for about 21 percent of all government spending. Though its trust fund is not because the government routinely borrows from the fund to pay for other budgetary items. In other words, if the bond markets ever decide to punish us for having such a high debt to gross domestic product ratio, Social Security Trust money is not as safe as it is purported to be. When the program was started in 1935, citizens started cy was 66. This demographic reality meant the program was essentially an insurance program against living much longer than the rest of the population. Social Security was able to pull countless seniors out of poverty and gave them the assurance that the government would help take care of them in the midst of a depression. If you judge a program by how well it achieved its objectives, this version of Social Security worked. Now the average life expectancy is 77.8. Social Security has gone from an old-age insurance program to a national pension. Billions of dollars in taxes are taken out of productive use to be forcibly lent to the government so people who failed to plan adequately for their retirement can be taken care of. Furthermore, Social Security is, indirectly, a wealth redistribution program from black males to white females. I use this example because, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average life expectancy for black males is 70.2, and for white females its 80.6. White women can expect to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars more than other demographic groups because of their gene pool. Moreover, black males tend to be more economically disadvantaged than white females, making the payroll tax used to fund it quite regressive. Social Security pays out disability claims on top of pensions. cently, I watched a woman on Divorce Court brag about how she made more money in child support and her sons Social Security disability payments than her husband did working at his construction job. While I was waiting to pick up a prescription at Walgreens, I discov ered after chatting with a man in line that he was on full Social Security disability for a back injury he sustained in construction. Instead of working a less physical job, he is now on the governments welfare roll for the rest of his life. In total, 8 million people receive Social Security disthese people are so incapacitated that they cannot work in some form of a job. Besides disability payments, children of seniors receive hundreds of dollars a month just for existing. This path is clearly unsustainable. Our generation must prepare for a lower standard of living because of the payments demanded by the generations above us. Eventually interest payments on the debt will force us to make hard decisions that wont involve elders alive today. The federal government currently spends $7 on the elderly for every $1 it spends on those under 18. This imbalance is pathetic. America can continue to be the most powerful country in the world, but we must accept that attempts to promote equality limit future growth, lowering everyones standard of living in the long run. Regardless of if it means raising the retirement age, making participation in Social Security optional, or allowing some form of private investment accounts, something must be done so that our future government has money to Travis Hornsby is a statistics and economics senior.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The term big government has been loosely bandied about for several decades. Certainly it has been used to entities, something that now not only disturbs many of those in the higher tax bracket but also many people hurting in todays staggering economy. During this presidential election year, as in others in the recent past, Republicans especially will use these words in hopes of getting votes. Some might call it scare tactics designed to trick the white poor and middle-class to actually vote against their own interests through fear. How many dollars spent and governmental programs are too many, and where should one draw the line? Is it too expensive to provide every American who needs assistance with basic necessities like food, shelter, education and health care? Is this what makes government too big, and is this where we are going wrong? Although many people would be hard-pressed to really dethey will hear this phrase and immetoward Democrats and those who receive some kind of governmental assistance. But the question that should naturally occur to any thoughtful person is: What does the phrase big government really mean? Try posing that question to your average anti-big-government tea party enthusiast. An awkward moment may follow that question because many tea party members would probably be showing strain on their faces in an effort to do something quite different from engaging in their usual blind rage: namely, critical thinking. It just seems to me, to borrow a phrase from George Carlin, that the American people should not be worried about big government but rather corrupt government. I dont know about you, but government used against the interests of the general population for the gain of a few wealthy interests is indeed cor rupt. One needs to look no further than tax loopholes that entaxes and the military industrial complex. The American people should really start thinking critically about how they have been manipulated to vote against their own interests through the brainwashing box called the television that hasnt reported real news since the retirement of Edward R. Murrow. Yes, thats an exaggeration, but it is nonetheless closer to the truth than how politicians and greedy cor porate interests have deceptively used the phrase big government to procure what they want from the corrupt system. Yes, corrupt government is more like it. Corrupt government means a government used by interests outside the interests of the American people for the purposes of corporate greed. Government should be as big as it needs to be. No less and no more. Greg Allard is a journalism senior at UF.Corrupt government a bigger threat than big governmentGuest columnGreg AllardSpeaking Out Since the s, its been a common rightwing practice to have a bake sale intended to demonstrate the inherent unfairness of using race as a factor in college admissions. White men get charged $2 baked to prove their point, while other races get charged a sliding scale based on the Republican protesters perception of the sever ity of racial bias against different groups. For instance, women might get discounts of 25 cents, Asians 50 cents, blacks a whole dollar, and Native Americans would get the baked goods for free. Never mind the strange hierarchy of discrimination (or repressed guilt); this doesnt make sense even if you are a pro-market ideologue. Heres why: A fair market value is how much a willing seller and a willing purchaser will agree to exchange. This is the basis of arms-length business dealings, and it is ideally how things are priced. But arms-length doesnt imply blind, and a smart baker will charge different prices to different people based on their ability to pay. Any white person who has traveled to Africa is familiar with this concept. While living in Tanzania, I frequently attempted to bargain with stall vendors. I had some successes in price offered. But I could never, even as my Swahili improved, get close to the prices that my Tanzanian friends paid. And I noticed that even among my Tanzanian friends, prices werent equal. Most stall vendors appeared to have a miraculous intuitive grasp of how much money another Tanzanian per son had, and rich Tanzanians, though they never paid as much as I did, paid more than their poorer counterparts. It makes sense from the stall vendors should sell all that he can at whatever margin he can and not wait to make a sale at the best price. Yes, you might argue, but someone might undercut him and sell at a lower price right? And surely rich people should be demanding this, right? Of course this happens. tive action? To start, college admissions are not essentially an exchange process. If the only thing universities were thinking about in the admissions process was their endowments, they would only admit the richest students because not only is wealth a good predictor of academic success, it is also a good predictor of future wealth. The problem with viewing universities admission policies through an exchange lens is that they have values that have nothing to do with exchange. They seek to recreate and improve society, to grow goodwill and to protect their public image, and they often have a have a social agenda that values a diverse learning environment. To go back to the original metaphor, universities see it as part of their job to make sure that brownies are available to everyone. From a universitys perspective, it makes perfect sense to lower barriers for people whose admission will help them further promote these other goals. Seen in this light, you could even say that it was fair. Furthermore, even if universities used a strict merit approach, not every university course, it would make sense to have different spots. But the Supreme Court has made it clear that universities cant have race-based set-asides. The court has taken the view that any government action that is based upon race (as opposed to merely considering race) is precluded by the Constitution. If this seems like a strange reading of the Fourteenth Amendments (thats the amendment that made ex-slaves citizens) equal protections clause to you, dont worry; you arent alone. But, the argument goes, if the school had used a strict approach, someone else would have gotten in and deserved it more. The argument forgets that a university has other values besides numbers and that universities know from experience that the numbers dont always prove merit; they ofThe bottom line is that universities admissions people should consider race in admissions just like they should consider class, geography and a multitude of other qualities. If they didnt, they wouldnt be doing their jobs.

EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterPonce de Leon is dead. The Spanish conquistadors death knell has been scribbled onto the backs of at least seven chairs in Turlington Hall along with announcements that the Chamber of Secrets has been opened and someone named Will was at one time present. Students in Weimer Halls Gannett Auditorium attend the University of Flopida, according to the sign on the lectern, while students at Library West publicly bemoan their lack of friends, lack of sex lives or lack of knowledge of organic chemistry on the study carrels and tables throughout the library. Though most of the vandalism is minor a fraternity name here, a heart and initials there it has accumulated over the years. I think expression is essential, said Cary Putnal, a 24-year-old philosophy junior. Sometimes it can even be helpful or inspirational. Chairs in Little Hall boast math theorems, and Putnal said a running debate on chaos and control can be found in a mens bathroom in Matherly. Hes also found the line All power to the imagination scrawled on a bathroom stall in the Reitz Union. Theres a big distinction bemindless stuff, said Steven Kanner, a 20-year-old environmental science junior. Others, like economics major Matthew Schaler and mechanical and aerospace engineering major Kyle Gooding, both 20-year-old juniors, think the mindless stuff can add a little something to a class, even if its just a smile. Stuff like a supply-and-demand graph on another Matherly bathroom stall analyzing the cost of, well, whatevers produced in a bathroom stall. Curtis Reynolds, assistant vice president of the UF Physical Plant Division, said there arent any routine checks for vandalism of campus buildings. Signs and desks are replaced once they are no longer functional and on an as-needed basis, he said. Reporting those types of incidents is the responsibility of the college or department that owns the building. Reynolds said if an act of vandalism is considered to be particularly defacing or debilitating, the University Police Department should be notiHe said hes not aware of much vandalism on campus, and there havent been any recent incidents that have required police involvement. I think the students who come to our university take a level of pride in their campus and their facilities, he said. 8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 Maggie Powers / AlligatorFound in Turlington Hall, this declaration is an example of vandalism found across campus.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Brantley-Driskel Dynamic Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Poll Results See Stories Online at alligatorSports.org. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffQuarterback John Brantley left Saturdays game late in the second quarter with a reported ankle sprain and did not return. Freshman Jeff Driskel replaced him and played the second half. FRESHMAN JEFF DRISKEL WOULD START AGAINST LSU IF BRANTLEY CANT PLAY. TYLER JETT When John Brantley entered the locker room prematurely, Floridas underlying fears bubbled to the surface. The adversity came on a Saturday night in front of a national TV audiand Brantley had just absorbed a body blow, a KO. The Saturday, of course, was two weeks ago a 48-10 victory at Kentucky. The injury Brantley sustained did minimal damage a hard hit to the midsection. He was only held out for much of the rest of the game as a precaution. The opponent was, after all, Kentucky. Florida was already up by three touchdowns. Still, that moment raised questions. What would happen if Brantley was knocked out for good? Was his backup, freshman Jeff Driskel, prepared to face Alabama in the Southeastern Conworld in Jeff, coach Will Muschamp said after the Kentucky game. All the for 30 minutes Saturday, as Driskel took all of Floridas snaps in the second half. For the second week in a row, Brantley exited a game with an injury. This time, the injury appears more serious. Dropping back on a third-and-20 with 45 seconds left in the half, Brantley was hit from the blind side by Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw. Brantleys right leg bent back as he was slammed to the ground, and the quar terback was noticeably in pain as soon as he hit the grass. The extent of the injury was not known Saturday night Muschamp only let on it was to Brantleys lower leg but reports have surfaced that he suffered a high ankle sprain. Driskel entered the stage facing a 24a mix of anxiety and excitement. As a senior at Oviedo Hagerty High, Driskel was the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the nation, according to Rivals.com. At the same time, he is still a freshman prodigy or not and he was staring down the No. 3 defense in the nation. In those 30 minutes at Florida Field, Driskel looked far from the hyped quarterback of the future. In those 30 minutes, Floridas offense managed Driskel threw for 14 yards on six Brantley injured against Crimson Tide, status in doubtSEE BRANTLEY, P A GE 16 GREG LUCAAfter four weeks of dominating inferior opponents, the Florida rushing attack ran into a buzz saw against Alabama. The senior running back duo of Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps aver month of the season, but combined for just 8 against the Crimson Tide. It was very frustrating, Demps said. It was hard to really get in the groove [Saturday], so well just kind of slow it down. Were just going to look at it as motivation from here on out. The Gators ran for minus-17 yards Only a 31-yard rush by freshman quarterback Jeff Driskel kept UFs rushing total in the black. Coach Will Muschamp said Alabamas large lead and the injury to senior quar terback John Brantley made it more and effectively. contests allowed Demps and Rainey to carry the ball 24.3 times per game, ited them to a combined 14 carries. The stout performance was Bama defense stymies Florida running backsTHE TOM GREEN SHO WWill Muschamp said it best Saturday night: The Gators simply got beat by a better team. No. 17 Florida came out swinging against No. 2 Alabama in The Swamp, but the over matched Gators just couldnt withstand the blows from a true heavyweight team. Alabama was bigger, stronger and more physical than Florida in a 38-10 blowout, controlling the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The Tide did to Florida what Florida did to FAU, UAB, Tennessee and Kentucky, showing the Gators they arent among the nations elite right now. rush defense look nonexistent, as Trent Richardson plowed over defenders and through arm tackles, dragging Gators for yards at a time en route to a career day. But what Richardson and Alabamas offense did Saturday night shouldnt be Floridas biggest concern, nor should the injury to quarterback John Brantleys knee, or ankle, or whatever part of his right leg bent the wrong way in the second quar ter. The Gators biggest concern after a demor alizing loss to the Tide (again) should be the teams inability to run the ball against a good defense. Which quarterback takes the snaps in the Florida offense doesnt matter so much as the success of the guys who take the handoffs, and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said as much after Floridas season opener against FAU. With Florida up big in that game, and the outcome well in hand, Jeff Driskel relieved Brantley because the coaches said they wanted to get him meaningful playing time. But the Gators rarely threw the ball with Driskel in the game because Weis wanted to pound the rock. mouth team, and Weis wanted to make sure SEE NO TEBOOK, P A GE 16 SEE TOM, P A GE 16 UF Fo otball T om Green 64% YES 36% NO414 total votes

MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Tom Green and Maegan Dennis / Alligator StaffLoss to Crimson Tide second worst at home in last 30 years of the game. But even with Brantley, the Gators didnt have much of a chance at stopping Alabama and Richardson. He ran through Gators defenders all evening, totaling a career-high 181 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries. After the game, Florida defenders could do nothing but level praise Richardsons way. Hes a tough running back, thats why hes a Heisman candidate, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Give him a lot of credit, he did a great job, him and his offensive line. Said linebacker Jelani Jenkins: going to see at the next level. Defensive tackle Jaye Howard was also impressed, calling Richardson a great player, and saying, it takes more than one person to bring him down. Leading up to the game, Muschamp and seemingly every player on the Florida defense talked about the importance of tackling. They talked about how impressive Richardson was with the ball in his hands. Muschamp said, without question, the combination of Richardson and fellow running back Eddie Lacy would be the toughest test the Gators young defense had seen. They were right. It was a matter of missed tackles, defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd said. We got to do a better job of wrapping up and swarming to the ball. Even when the defenders appeared to have Richardson wrapped up, which wasnt often, the bruising back eluded their grasp. Early in the fourth quarter of a two-score game, Howard was in the ardson for a loss. But Richardson cut left, shaking the arm tackle from Howard, and galloped into the end zone to put the game out of reach at 31-10. Alabama coach Nick Saban attributed the win and success of Richardson to the offensive line. An experienced unit returning four starters from a season ago, the Crimson Tide offensive line was in command from the start. Howard admitted as much after ward. The defensive line, we didnt control the line of scrimmage, Howard said. There were times we looked good, and there were times when they ran right through us. We got to come back and correct that. As a team, the Crimson Tide racked up 226 yards on the ground just 4 yards shy of the 230-yard average with which they entered the game, trailing only Flor ida for best in the conference. But the Gators ran for just 15 yards in the second-worst loss at home in the last 30 years. Saturdays 28-point loss is behind only the 36-7 defeat against LSU in 2002. Saban was the coach in both. Alabama is now 8-2 in The Swamp the best record of any SEC opponent. We put so much into this one, Hunter said. I really wanted it. I feel like I put everything in this offseason just for this game. ... To come up short is disappointing, but well get through it. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff business as usual for the Crimson Tide, which boasts by far the nations No. 1 rush defense, allowing just 39.6 yards per game. Second-place Virginia Tech allows 58.2 yards per game. We heard a lot about their offense and it being number one, and their running game is supposed to be the best, Alabama senior linebacker Courtney Upshaw said. We just wanted to come out and prove what we could do. Debose making noise: Although the Florida wide receivers were almost invisible through Andre Debose needed just a single snap to make their presence felt. lined up split out to the left and streaked past Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. Brantley hit him in stride and Debose did the rest, strolling into the end zone for a 65of his career. The single catch more than doubled Deboses yardage total for the season. 64 yards. Debose left Floridas game against Tennessee due to injury and did not play against Kentucky, but Muschamp liked what he saw from him in practice. Andres done a good job, Muschamp said. Hes practiced hard. Very pleased with his progress. Saunders suspended: season, freshman safety DeAnte Pop Saunders did not start Saturday. Muschamp said Saunders was suspended for violating team rules and that hed be back next week. Junior Josh Evans started in his place. Demps banged up: Demps said he was moHe said he fell on his left knee and felt a little discomfort, but that it wasnt that serious. All three of Demps carries happened after the injury.

Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. NOTEBOOK, from page 14pass attempts. He looked uncomfortable in the pocket, scrambling unsuccessfully on a pair of third-and-longs and taking one sack. He fumbled a snap. Floridas offensive ineptitude put too much weight on its renewed defense, which stopped Alabama on three straight drives in the second half, though, the defense eventually wore out, not that players blamed the new quarterback. We have faith in Driskel; its not like he went in and everybody put their heads down, defensive end Sharrif Floyd said. No, its not like that. Weve seen Driskel. We know what Driskel can do. That was the theme among players after This week, Florida faces LSU the No. 9 defense in the nation. If Driskel has to start, the Gators are cool with that. We tell him all the time, We trust you, man, so just go out there and be you, wide receiver Andre Debose said. Driskels a great player. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. BRANTLEY, from page 14his offense would be able to run it when it absolutely needed to. Well, the Gators needed to run it Saturday and they werent able to at all. Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps, who have done every thing on offense for Florida this season, were swallowed by a hungry Alabama defense. Alabama dominated Floridas offensive line, limiting the Gators to half a yard per carry on 29 attempts and recording three sacks on the night. The holes created for there Saturday night, and Demps and Rainey couldnt break runs to the outside because of Alabamas team speed. Floridas run game worked cause the Gators were bigger and the running backs were faster. That wasnt the case against Alabama. It wont be the case against No. 1 LSU this weekend. It might not even be the case against the remaining teams on the Gators schedule, outside of Furman and Vanderbilt. While Alabama was clearly the superior team in The Swamp, if Florida cant establish itself in the running peating his opening statement from Saturday. We got beat by a better team tonight.
