TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 SUSTAINABILITY JAVIER PEAAlligator Contributing WriterOne year ago, 20-year-old Shelby Krantz used to drive everywhere. But after Krantz, a natural resource conservation junior, learned more about the effects of pollution on the environment, she decided to start biking instead of driving. Come Oct. 26, Krantz will be among the hundreds of students to participate in Sustainable UFs annual One Less Car Day. One Less Car Day is part of an ongoing campaign to encourage UF students and faculty to use alternative transportation. Transportation accounts for about 10 percent of the universitys carbon footprint, created by harmful emissions that affect the environment, said 25-year-old Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator The goal of One Less Car Day, she said, is for UF to be carbon-neutral by 2025. Pennington said. Sustainability hopes to raise awareness on alternative transportation and the causes of climate change. Rather than drive to school, students will be encouraged to walk, bike or take a bus. Gainesville is the 16th friendliest bike city in the United States, Pennington said. Its a great way to get exercise, and its a lot betshe said. Krantz, a member of Gators Going Green, said students can make a difference by taking simple steps like turning off the air before leaving home, using reusable water bottles and taking the bus instead of driving to school. Pennington said she encourages students to visit the Sustainable UF website for more information on One Less Car Day and other campaigns students can get involved with. There are plenty of ways to get inAs of Friday afternoon, about 550 people had committed to using alternative transportation on campus on One Less Car Day, Pennington said.

ON caCAMPUS MELISSA HARVARD MARIA GALINDOAlligator Contributing Writers Monday of October with a dancing Reitz Union Colonnade. The UF College of Fine Arts and the Fine Arts College Council hosted an arts and cultural opportunities fair Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Reitz Colonnade in celebration of National Arts and Humanities Month. With about 70 campus and local clubs and organizations participating, the fair offered students a nect with the art community. Rachel Berry, a development program assistant in the deans ofHumanities Month that has been She said that many students spend their years at UF without engaging in the arts. Its easy not to realize how much the arts, humanity and culture have to offer at the university, Berry said. Fernando Masterson, 19, telecommunications sophomore, was surprised to see the presence the arts and humanities community has on campus. I had no idea there were so many opportunities to get involved with the arts. UF President Bernie Machen was among several speakers at the fair. Machen noted the importance of art in the life of the campus and local community. It [National Arts and Humanities Month] is a reminder to all of us here at UF that the arts are the electrical current that will light up the future of our university and the city of Gainesville, Machen said. You cant have a vibrant, innovative community without a vibrant, artistic community. It just doesnt work. The months events include the Art Bash, the Florida Writers Festival and the Conference of the Social Sciences. The Swamp Symphony on Flavet Field will end the celebration and formally kick off Homecoming events on Oct. 27. For a complete list of events, go Organization fair celebrates national arts, humanities in the Reitz Union at least 24 hours in advance. UF Chief Justice Matt Michel and Associate Justices Georgia Buckhalter, Tim Mason and Cecily Welsh also debated whether to mandate a re-vote, mandate a partial re-vote or instruct the Student Senate to implement stricter regulations for the next elections cycle. Welsh said she was concerned that students who might not have realized they were incorrectly listed under District E until they reached the candidate list would not have been able to change their district at that point. students voting addresses were pulled from, whether poll workers received complete procedures from Megna and whether Megna made Students Party members Jonathan Ossip and Gillian Leytham presented evidence to have the Senates vote to validate the results postponed. The Supreme Court made the right decision, Ossip said. Senate Allocations Committee Chairman Joe Pardo, who represented the Senate, and Megna responded to the Students Partys petition. Pardo said during the hearing that any discrepancies in results stemmed from user error. After the courts decision, Par considered the investigation an appropriate measure. The investigation granted by this court will yield necessary information for the court sults, which I expect it will, he said. After both sides presented their arguments and witnesses, the justices deliberated for about two hours. I think we can say this [elections process] wasnt good enough, Welsh said. APPEaAL, from page 1Court to discuss need for re-voteUF default rate relatively low and Barbering with a 28.5 percent default rate. Rick Wilder, interim director for the UFs default rate is minuscule when compared to other schools across the country something he attributes to jobs after graduation. In the 2008-2009 school year, 37,816 UF students took out about $216 million in loans. In the 2009-2010 school year, 38,812 students took out about $221 million in student loans numbers that Wilder said he expects to continue to increase. As a result, he said he expects the numbers of students in debt from loans also to increase over the short term. Students who take out loans must go through entrance and exit counseling with SFA, he said, to ensure that they are educated about what loans entail. Once students with loans graduate or leave school, they have six to nine months, depending on the type of loan, to begin repayment. Students who fail garnished wages, legal action or a lowered credit score. seek other sources of funding, such as grants, scholarships or work programs. Loans are kind of a last resort, he said. But unfortunately theyre becoming more and more popular as other sources of funding are decreasing. In addition to reductions in Bright Futures funding, the Academic Competitiveness Grant and the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent grants were eliminated. Pell Grants also faced cuts. For the 2011-2012 school year, Wilder said UF saw a total of $20 million cut from grants and scholarship programs. I dont foresee it getting better in the near future, he said. LL Oa ANS, from page 1 I had no idea there were so many opportunities to get involved with the arts.Fernando Mastersontelecommunications sophomoreCounty Commission approved 2.3 percent increase last weekmanagement. The School Board and the county governments general fund are the two tax rates that play the largest role in determining the overall millage rate. The School Board of Alachua County had the highest property tax rate of any county, with a millage rate of 9.107 mills. This tax rate increased in 2008 with Alachua County voter approval. When looking at the property tax that goes to the countys general fund, Alachua County drops to 16th with a millage rate of 8.3763 mills. Last week, the County Commission approved a 2.3 percent will bring the tax up to 8.5696 mills. County Manager Randall Reid said Alachua County is often compared, unfairly, to that city out west in Leon County. Like Alachua, about 57 percent of the property in Leon County is taxable, as it is home to entities like Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College. The two counties have similar population sizes 247,336 residents here and 275,487 in Leon. However, Reid said, Leon County has had a one-cent sales tax in place for about 30 years, an effort that brings in about $35 million dollars annually to the county. It is really tragic to me that we dont enact this, he said. Alachua County voters have historically voted against the one-cent sales tax, though Reid said it may be on the ballots again in 2012. Right now, property taxes are the main source of funds for county entities like the sheriffs department and county projects like the construction of parks or road repairs, something said. People want lower taxes, Reid said. Well, to do that, theyll have to decide what type of county services they want to get rid of.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 JENNA BOX Alligator Contributing Writer In her Ocala neighborhood, 60-year-old Becky Saucier discovered several feral cats wandering the streets. One male cat started to antagonize her cat for territory. Since 2006, 15 stray and feral test cats have been observed by researchers from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in hopes stray cat populations. The answer was found in GonaCon, an immunocontraceptive vaccine that targets a key reproductive hor mone in the brain called GnRH. UF and the Department of Agriculture have pioneered a single-dose vaccine with long-term effects on fertility in adult female cats, according to a UF news release. The college was issued a $250,000 grant by the Morris Animal Foundation to complete the tive to controlling feral cats, lead researcher Julie Levy said. Of the cats treated with GonaCon, 93 percent showed infertility results for a full year and at the were found to remain infertile. When stray animal populations are treated, it is not essential that every individual animal be infertile, Levy said, just that a large proportion of them are. Saucier said she doesnt necessarily agree with the treatment but she thinks it is a step forward. This new development in contraception for cats would cer tainly be better than killing them, she said.Cat contraception helps control strays ENVIRONMENT SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterA UF-led research team was awarded a $6.3 million grant Thursday to genetically enhance the chemical responsible for creating the scent of Christmas trees to make transportation biofuels. The scent of pine trees comes from terpene, a chemical that is naturally produced and stored in the tree. The liquid terpene can be directly blended with transportation fuels like gasoline. Research tells us that terpene production and storage capacity are controlled in large part by pine tree genetics, said John Davis, co-principal investigator of the project. This means that we can grow varieties with higher amounts of terpenes, which can be used as renewable biofuels. The U.S. Energy Departments Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy awarded the threeyear grant. The agency is a program within the Energy Department that is investing in renewable and domestic production of energy, including biofuels. Davis, along with Gary Peter, the principal investigator of the project, are professors at the UF School of Forest Resources and Conservation. Their collaborators for the project include personnel from the University of California-Berkeley, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and ArborGen LLC, a leading commercial supplier of enhanced seedlings to the forest industry. UF will receive about $2.4 million of the grant. The rest of the $6.3 million goes to the collaborators portion of the work. Existing pine tree varieties have a terpene content of 3 to 5 percent. The researchers hope to develop varieties that accumulate more than 20 percent. At this level of terpene content, pine trees can produce about 100 million gallons of fuel from about 25,000 acres of planted pine, Peter wrote in an email. If our technology is successful, then we can directly produce in a plant, Peter wrote, and extract a biofuel that will be more than two times lower cost than ethanol derived from maize starch and with a much higher energy content.Researchers receive grant to study use of pine tree chemical in biofuels This means that we can grow varieties with higher amounts of terpenes, which can be used as renewable biofuels.John Davisco-principal investigator

Todays question: that you cannot do your job? Did U.S.-born terrorist deserve a trial?Does the War on Terror create an exception for killing U.S. citizens without trial? On Friday, Anwar al-Awlaki, an alleged senior al-Qaida leader, was reportedly killed in Yemen by a U.S. drone strike. Although al-Awlaki has been linked with planning various terror attacks, including the attempt by the Christmas Day underwear bomber, he is still a U.S. citizen. Numerous al-Qaida leaders have been taken out by drone strikes throughout the War on Terror, but al-Awlaki is the beginning of the end to taking down the terrorist group for good at least as a fully operational organization. There will always be terrorists, but it appears that the U.S. government is slowly picking off the masterminds. Do the ends justify the means? It would appear that everyone agrees that if a U.S. citizen takes up arms against his or her own country that they should be treated as an enemy. But should there also be a high standard of evidence to prove this? Yes, there was evidence of al-Awlaki speaking out against the United States and supporting terrorist attacks. But does his citizenship provide him with a higher standard of evidence required to execute this direct attack? Some are saying al-Awlakis citizenship has opened the door for the president to target Americans on a whim and could be an expansion of executive power that goes too far. Others are saying that at least the courts should have been presented with evidence and granted a warrant to the government to take him out. Civil libertarians are saying that he deserved to face trial for his crimes, like terrorist Timothy McVeigh.

Ive been a vegetarian for almost seven years, but I still get weird looks when I order a protein that didnt come from an animal. I get asked things like Youre getting what? What is tempeh? That sounds gross. My usual, witty retort is to claim that you sound gross, so there. (My comebacks cant all be winners, guys.) So what if I want to order tempeh instead of beef? Tempeh is a lot like a veggie burger in texture and taste; its normally made from combining soybeans and a grain, like barley, and then pan-searing or deep-frying it into a sort of patty. I often get it as a burger or as a topping on salad; you can use it exactly as you would ground beef. Plus, you cant go wrong with deep-fried anything, am I right? Sometimes, when ordering Chinese or Japanese food, Ill want to get tofu instead of my usual shrimp. (Im a pescetar call that cheating, but its a necessity for me.) Once again, Ill get funny looks from friends. Ew, tofu? What even is that? I hate tofu, it tastes gross. Im going to let you in on a secret: Tofu only tastes gross tastes like whatever you cook it in or with. So, Im sorry if whatever restaurant you last ate tofu in 10 years ago made it taste weird, but not all tofu is like that. I promise. Over the summer, I became an Iron Chef of tofu. Trust me, there are a ton of different ways to cook and prepare it, and they are all delicious. When I tell people (people whom I have known for years) that Im going to make chicken nuggets, they still do a double take. Sami, but thats chicken! Cue me shaking my head and rolling my eyes. No, guys. Its fake chicken. Ive been a vegetarian the entire time youve known me. Get with it. There are a few brands in grocery stores of vegetarian foods that provide alternatives to traditional protein choices. The Morningstar line is probably my favor ite. It sells ground beef, chicken nuggets and sausage substitutes as well as premade meals. They taste a lot like the original version when cooked the right way even my dad thinks so! Hes the one who does the cooking most of the time at home, so hes had practice. This brings me to a rule of thumb for non-vegetarian friends of vegetarians: If its sold in Publix, youre not allowed to be afraid of it. Its not too crazy or wacky if its etarian proteins for sale there if you look. I think I get such weird looks because humans suffer from a fear of the unknown. When presented with someThis is probably a smart strategy around, lets say, sharks. When it comes to delicious food, though, theres no need to recoil with disgust and then make fun of me for eating. I dont make fun of you guys for eating red meat. While its not the direct cause of heart disease or colorectal cancer, the high amounts of cholesterol arent doing anyone any favors. Of course, its always worse to combine a diet of heavy red meat with other processed foods and sweets. Thats just asking for trouble. So the next time you hear a vegetarian or a kindred spirit order something funky at a restaurant, dont ask why. That will make you sound dumb. Instead, try asking what. Be a little more curious and a little less judgmental. Vegheads around the world will thank you. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Trick or Treat? Whats in your chocolate? Halloween is approaching, and although college kids are (hopefully) too old to make rounds in the neighbor hood asking for candy, you will probably gorge yourself on some kind of sweet treat this month. Maybe youll get your hands on a fun-size Snickers bar, some M&Ms or a Hersheys Kiss. Chocolate simple packaged goodness. Ingredients: Cocoa beans, cocoa butter, sugar and milk. Right? Wrong. Other than the concrete ingredients that go in your chocolate, you may not think about the hours of labor that go into the planting, harvesting and distributing of these cocoa beans. Once you learn the truth about whats in your chocolate, it may start to seem more like a trick than a treat. The Ivory Coast is the worlds largest cocoa producer, providing about 43 percent of the worlds cocoa. According to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, there were about 284,000 children working on cocoa farms in hazardous conditions in 2002. U.S. cocoa manufactures such as Hersheys have claimed that they are not responsible for the conditions on cocoa plantations because they do not own them. If children are working on cocoa farms, this means that their families live in dire poverty. These children are working instead of going to school. Because they cannot be educated, the cycle of poverty in their families will continue. This is an unsustainable life-cycle, trapping cocoa harvesters at the bottom of the ranks. Howand today there is an ongoing movement called Fair Trade to help solve it. consumer that the cocoa in his or her chocolate has been har vested by an of-age farmer who is typically a member of a small farming collective. This farmer receives basic rights, living wages and fair working hours. This means his children them to school. the $13 billion U.S. chocolate market. In addition to being the month of Halloween, October is also Fair Trade Month. This month, human rights organizations around the globe are promoting Fair Trade products to increase awareness of these human rights issues and to promote businesses that do the right thing. As consumers in the First World, we need to realize that we markets such as these, and we can use them wisely to vote for companies that practice human rights and sustainability. What can you do? I know we are college students. Most of us would rather drop big bucks on a snazzy Halloween costume this month than on pounds of slave-free chocolate. However, as I mentioned earlier, you can vote with your dollar. This means you can choose when you buy Fair Trade. In my apartment, we bake chocolate chip cookies every week and about half the time, we use Fair Trade semi-sweet chocolate chips. A bag of SunSpire Fair Trade Organic Chocolate Chips for baking runs about $5.50 in Wards Supermarket or Mother Earth. If you are craving a chocolate bar, Divine brand Fair Traderuns about $4 a bar. My roommates really dig the white chocoChocolate is not the only thing that can be Fair Trade-certihuman rights issues attached to them. I brew my own coffee in the morning and use Greenwise in any Publix in Gainesville and runs at only $6 a bag. Look for the Fair Trade logo (a half-black, half-white per son outline holding a basket) on these products to ensure that they are Fair Trade. Each time you purchase a Fair Trade product, you are supporting a business that does the right thing and a new blossoming movement toward making ethical businesses practices a standard. When you have a chocolate treat, try to go the extra mile to purchase Fair Trade. Irene Vailikit is a political science senior at UF. Consumers should promote Fair Trade with chocolate purchasesGuest columnIrene VailikitSpeaking Out This week, Saudi Arabias King Abdullah granted women in his country the right to vote. Whoop-dee-doo. We act like this is news. This is nothing. Womens suffrage is not a novel concept. Most people, including yours truly, believe universal suffrage must be a staple in any truly democratic society. For those of you who are unaware, Saudi Arabia is a monarchy in the Middle East. The United States depends heavily on it for oil, so naturally our diplomatic policy toward the country has been something along the lines of to each his own. And I do mean his. Saudi Arabia is a feminists worst nightmare. Women arent allowed to drive or leave the house unaccompanied by a man. If they do, they can be lashed. It is an extremely conservative and religion-centric society like Mississippi, with a bit more sand. For some reason, every time Saudi Arabia decides to grant its citizens a little more freedom, the world rejoices. Yes, women now have the right to vote, but like I said earlier, they are not allowed to drive or be in public without a male escort. So if their husband doesnt want to take them, they wont be able to vote. Womens suffrage is dependent on male accompaniment. How is that a freedom? All this shows is that King Abdullah and the Saudi Arabian establishment are scared. They are far from stupid. They see whats been going on in Egypt, Libya, Syria and Bahrain. The Arab Spring could be the end of Saudi Arabia as we know it. Having said that, the United States will never openly support a Saudi regime change not unless we are sure the rebels would win. We learned our lesson in the 1970s after aiding Israel despite a threat from Saudi Arabia to cut oil production that resulted in a gas crisis and recession. As long as Saudi Arabias rich, ruling aristocracy can remain in power and in control of the black gold, I can guarantee we wont supply their rebels with weapons. King Abdullah and the Saudi elite are afraid of losing control. Thats why they have done everything they can to keep the masses happy and at bay. While this slight progression toward democracy in Saudi Arabia should be rejoiced, my advice is to remain skeptical. Its not like King Abdullah watched just enough Lifetime Channel to have a change of heart. He has ulterior motives. Deterring the Arab Spring is the kings top priority, and he will continue to provide his people with illusions of freedom in order to accomplish this goal.

ON Ca AMPUsS ORIANA PAOLILLOAlligator Contributing Writer Distinguished atmospheric scientist Katharine Hayhoe will visit UF to talk about a little more than the weather. Hayhoe, a research associate professor of the geosciences department at Texas Tech University, will be speaking at a seminar co-hosted by the Florida Climate Institute and the UF Water Institute. The seminar is scheduled for Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Emerson Alumni Hall Room 209. The purpose of the seminar is to explore the reliability of various climate models, said Carolyn Cox, coordinator for the Florida Climate Institute. Making climate projections for cities is challenging, Cox said. Climate models give a worldwide forecast. Hayhoe will take a look into climate projections by evaluating current models reliability and presenting a new approach to remove model uncertainty. She said she will reveal her new approach at the seminar. Hayhoe is known for developing ways to measure the potential impacts of human activities at the regional scale, Cox said. Hayhoe said climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing this generation. We [in Florida] are particularly vulner able to sea-level rise and climate change geographically, Cox said. Admission to the seminar is free and open to the public. The room holds about 100 people. A question-and-answer section is scheduled for after the seminar, where students will be able to talk to Hayhoe. A lot of people have doubts, and this will be a chance to clear them out, said Wendy-Lin Bartels, post-doctoral research associate for the Florida Climate Institute. Hayhoe will also discuss climate sensitivity and its implications on the projections for Floridas future climate. Climate affects everything around us, Cox said. There is a need in Florida for reliable climate information.Geoscientist will explore climate projections during seminar JUSTIN JONESAlligator Contributing WriterPumpkins arent naturally pink, but come Saturday, Oct. 15, about 300 pumpkins will be. kin Painting Party, people can paint pumpkins pink to help raise breast cancer awareness. Painting will take place on the Cancer Genetics Research Complex lawn on the corner of Gale Lemerand Drive and Archer Road. The event is free for attendees. The cancer centers communication and marketing fund is paying for the $2,000 event, according to Lindy Brounley, the communications director for the UF Shands cancer center. Brounley said she wants the message behind the pink pumpkins to touch everyone when attendees display the pink pumpkins on their doorsteps. Brounley also said the pumpkin party would allow Gainesville residents to interact with the hospitals staff in a differ ent kind of setting. We dont often get to see them in a setting outside of the hospital, so this would give us the oppor tunity to interact with them doing something fun, she said. the symbol for breast cancer awareness, but the team at the cancer center thought it was a little outdated. Instead, they opted for pumpkin painting something they felt was fun and family-oriented but would still help raise awareness for their cause. Were trying to achieve an increased awareness of breast cancer so that people can live, she said.Pink pumpkins to raise breast cancer awareness Climate affects everything around us.Carolyn Coxcoordinator for the Florida Climate Institute

Coach Will Muschamp said Monday that Brantley will miss Saturdays game with what Musinjury and that freshman Jeff Driskel is in line to start against No. 1 LSU. champ said. for him, but its time to pick up the other guy.

Muschamp would not comment on the extent of Brantleys injury, but multiple reports sur faced Sunday that it was a high ankle sprain. Brantley could be out for an extended period of time, and Muschamp said he will give weekly said the quarterback will not require surgery. With Brantley sidelined, Muschamp said Driskel is the teams starter despite spraining his ankle against Alabama. Floridas coach added that Tyler Murphy and Jacoby Brissett will also take repetitions in practice this week.

The Gators also were exposed multiple times on poor angles to the ball carrier. up front, leveraging the ball and tackling better thats where it all that was the story of the game, and we knew that going in. Richardson ran for a careerhigh 181 yards and two touchdowns, wearing down the UF defense on 29 carries. Muschamp said players were trying to do too much against Alabama instead of taking care of their individual matchup.Multiple issues at fault for lapse in run defenseBig men need love, too. We hate on offensive linemen so much when they fail our teams. No running lanes? Blame the hogs. Sacks? Do your bled snaps? Big men, big men, big men. They dont receive enough praise any football player will tell you that. So lets not fall into such a trap. The big men did great last weekend. Alabamas big men. Saturdays 38-10 loss was decided at the line of scrimmage. Florida couldnt establish the run; Florida couldnt stop the run. Answering all those master-padawan questions about Nick Saban last week, Will Muschamp made it clear that his former boss provided Muschamp with his blueprint for running a college football team. Among those instructions was a simple rule: Use a pro-style offense. On Saturday, we attended a clinic revealing just how much Florida needs to grow to reach Muschamps intended destination: Saban Status. The differ ence in the two programs? About 10 pounds the discrepancy between Floridas average starting offensive lineman (302.2 pounds) and Alabamas bigger big men. the second quarter, they ran some more.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator WriterAfter its worst performance of the season, the Gators defense knew it had to step up, and it did so in a big way this weekend. Against then-No. 12 Tennessee on Sept. 25, Florida allowed a season-high four goals. Following the 4-2 loss, the Gators addressed several areas of concern on defense, resulting in shutouts posted at home against Vanderbilt and Kentucky. To give up four goals in a game is not where we want to be by any stretch of the imagination, coach Becky Burleigh said after the Tennessee game. Two of the Volunteers goals came directly off Gators turnovers. Burleigh emphasized the importance of making sure they were on target whenever they played passes coming from the side and back passes, as miscues can lead to scoring opportunities for the opposition. The advice paid dividends for No. 12 Florida (10-3, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) as it played cleaner games in the weekends shutout wins. Last week in practice, the Gators made some tactical adjustments to help the defense. Their system often requires sending many players forward, including the outside backs. If not handled correctly, that style of play can lead to mismatches when the other team goes on the attack. Burleigh said Florida needed to focus on recognizing when it was sending players forward and taking the correct actions under those circumstances, whether its waiting for help-side defense to step up or keeping players back. The adjustments were evident, as the Gators held the Commodores to three total shots Friday night, while holding the Wildcats to just two shots on goal Sunday. After [the Tennessee game], we kind of focused this weekend on get the shutout, get the shutout, and keeping that in the forefront really helped, senior outside back Jazmyne Avant said Sunday. The play of Avant and the rest of Floridas back line was key in wins during the weekend. Avant, sophomore Maggie Rodgers and junior Kat Williamson were on the pitch for the entirety of both games. Freshman defender Annie Bobbitt played 70 minutes Friday night after coming in for injured junior defender Katie Kadera, and Bobbitt played 90 minutes on Sunday. Burleigh said that although Bobbitt played due to the injury to Kadera, Bobbitt has improved during the course of the season and earned more playing time with her performance in limited minutes. Weve been working with her on her physical presence, which I think shes made a big emphasis to get better at, but she [keeps her composure], Burleigh said of Bobbitt. She is calm on the ball and has excellent distribution. The Gators strong defensive play also earned Williamson multiple honors, as she received her second SEC Defensive Player of the Week award this season. She was also named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffAfter a 4-2 loss to Tennessee on Sept. 25, Gators outside back Jazmyne Avant (right) and the defense responded with two shutout wins during the weekend. sSOCCERDefense improves in shutout wins JOE MORGANAlligator WriterBetsy Smith works hard very hard. And there has been nothing but good results for the efforts of No. 13 Floridas junior middle blocker, who has played a bigger role on the court in 2011 than in the past. Shes a special person and player, Wise said. We knew it was going to take time and she just never quit mentally or emotionally. playing time for Smith, who sat behind All-Southeastern Conference First Team selection Lauren Bledsoe and the conferences reigning blocking leader, Cassandra Anderson. Now she sees the court more often, and it is paying dividends for the Gators. Betsy may not be the best jumper in the league, or the fastest player, or the tallest middle in the league, but there are very few who have a higher volleyball IQ, coach Mary Wise said. Id put her work ethic up against anybody. Smith has started 12 matches for Florida this season, posting a .407 hitting percentage, the secondbest mark on the team. Also, she is out-blocking Anderson and currently ranks third in the SEC with 1.13 blocks per set. Her increased role and her consistent numbers are a result of a productive summer, Wise said. There are players that work hard in front of the coaches, but Betsys a player who works very hard when the coaches arent even around, Wise said. Floridas sweep against Georgia had extra meaning for Smith, who was able to play in front of her sister, a freshman student at UGA, and family less than two hours away from her hometown of Atlanta. In her two previous trips to Athens, Ga., Smith only appeared in two sets, but she played all three Sunday. I thought back on the times [Smiths family has come] in the past now in her fourth year in the program where if she got in (against Georgia), it was very limited play, Wise said. Sometimes, she didnt play at all. Although I didnt have an opportunity to talk to her family, I talked to her high school coaches and they were pretty excited. Smith took advantage of the extra time on the court, hitting an errorless .700 for the match, recording a block, four block assists and seven kills. Arguably Smiths biggest play of the match came sophomore setter Chanel Brown to clinch the third and decisive frame. The rally [Sunday] to end the match took a while and I think the story of that match continues to be Betsy Smith, Wise said. It was perfect that she would have the swing at match-point to win it. Jaeckel receives SEC honor: Redshirt senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week after her efforts in back-to-back 3-0 sweeps of Auburn and Georgia last weekend. In those two matches, Jaeckel recorded a .455 hitting percentage, 29 kills and 11 block assists.Smith playing larger role, providing production at middle blocker for UFthe Gators defense didnt want any more, until the unit that ranks third in the Southeastern Conference against the run resorted to piggy-back rides and arm tackles. Defensive end Sharrif Floyd said after the game that fatigue stats. Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson gained a careerhigh 181 yards on the ground; Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey combined for 8 yards on 14 carries. Alabamas defense notched three sacks; Florida got zero. The Tide held on to the ball for 18:40 in the break. Not all of this can be chalked up to the big men. John Brantleys leg injury changed the complexion of the game, kind of. He was playing the best game of his career, but even that was not enough. ing yards, Demps and Rainey gained 1 yard on eight carries. Some will argue that Alabamas hogs werent the difference, that Richardson and his grown-ass-man strength carried the Tide. But backup Eddie Lacy was just as effective, averaging 6.4 yards per carry. So, how do Floridas big men get some love? They have to get bigger. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis found himself in a similar situation when he took over at Notre Dame. After three seasons with offensive lines averaging 300 pounds or lighter, the Irish bulked up in 2008, when players recruited by Weis went through the teams training program. The Irishs opening-day starting linemen averaged 315.4 pounds about 15 pounds heavier than the average lineman the year before. Expect a similar jump in Gainesville as Muschamp and Weis try to create a Tuscaloosa-feel at the line of scrimmage. For now, though, the Gators face a steep battle. LSUs offensive line is even bigger than Alabama. And dont forget Georgia. The Dawgs will bring the heaviest o-line in the nation to Jacksonville when they play the Gators on Oct. 29. That line averages 329.4 pounds, and it will expect love. A whole lot of love. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. TYlLER, from page 14 UF Volleyball Burleigh

One Less Car Day is part of an ongoing campaign to encourage UF students and faculty to use alternative transportation. Transportation accounts for about 10 percent of the universitys carbon footprint, created by harmful emissions that affect the environment, said 25-year-old Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator The goal of One Less Car Day, she said, is for UF to be carbon-neutral by 2025. Pennington said. Sustainability hopes to raise awareness on alternative transportation and the causes of climate change. Rather than drive to school, students will be encouraged to walk, bike or take a bus. Gainesville is the 16th friendliest bike city in the United States, Pennington said. Its a great way to get exercise, and its a lot betshe said. Krantz, a member of Gators Going Green, said students can make a difference by taking simple steps like turning off the air before leaving home, using reusable water bottles and taking the bus instead of driving to school. Pennington said she encourages students to visit the Sustainable UF website for more information on One Less Car Day and other campaigns students can get involved with. There are plenty of ways to get inAs of Friday afternoon, about 550 people had committed to using alternative transportation on campus on One Less Car Day, Pennington said.

ON CAMPUS MELISSA HARVARD MARIA GALINDOAlligator Contributing Writers Monday of October with a dancing Reitz Union Colonnade. The UF College of Fine Arts and the Fine Arts College Council hosted an arts and cultural oppor tunities fair Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Reitz Colonnade in celebration of National Arts and Humanities Month. With about 70 campus and local clubs and organizations participating, the fair offered students a nect with the art community. Rachel Berry, a development program assistant in the deans ofHumanities Month that has been She said that many students spend their years at UF without engaging in the arts. Its easy not to realize how much the arts, humanity and culture have to offer at the university, Berry said. Fernando Masterson, 19, telecommunications sophomore, was surprised to see the presence the arts and humanities community has on campus. I had no idea there were so many opportunities to get involved with the arts. UF President Bernie Machen was among several speakers at the fair. Machen noted the importance of art in the life of the campus and local community. It [National Arts and Humanities Month] is a reminder to all of us here at UF that the arts are the electrical current that will light up the future of our university and the city of Gainesville, Machen said. You cant have a vibrant, innovative community without a vibrant, artistic community. It just doesnt work. The months events include the Art Bash, the Florida Writers Festival and the Conference of the Social Sciences. The Swamp Symphony on Flavet Field will end the celebration and formally kick off Homecom ing events on Oct. 27. For a complete list of events, go Organization fair celebrates national arts, humanities in the Reitz Union at least 24 hours in advance. UF Chief Justice Matt Michel and Associate Justices Georgia Buckhalter, Tim Mason and Cecily Welsh also debated whether to mandate a re-vote, mandate a partial re-vote or instruct the Student Senate to implement stricter regulations for the next elections cycle. Welsh said she was concerned that students who might not have realized they were incorrectly listed under District E until they reached the candidate list would not have been able to change their district at that point. students voting addresses were pulled from, whether poll workers received complete procedures from Megna and whether Megna made Students Party members Jonathan Ossip and Gillian Leytham presented evidence to have the Senates vote to validate the results postponed. The Supreme Court made the right decision, Ossip said. Senate Allocations Committee Chairman Joe Pardo, who represented the Senate, and Megna responded to the Students Partys petition. Pardo said during the hearing that any discrepancies in results stemmed from user error. After the courts decision, Par considered the investigation an appropriate measure. The investigation granted by this court will yield necessary information for the court sults, which I expect it will, he said. After both sides presented their arguments and witnesses, the justices deliberated for about two hours. I think we can say this [elections process] wasnt good enough, Welsh said. APPEAL, from page 1Court to discuss need for re-voteUF default rate relatively low and Barbering with a 28.5 percent default rate. Rick Wilder, interim director for the UFs default rate is minuscule when compared to other schools across the country something he attributes to jobs after graduation. In the 2008-2009 school year, 37,816 UF students took out about $216 million in loans. In the 2009-2010 school year, 38,812 students took out about $221 million in student loans numbers that Wilder said he expects to continue to increase. As a result, he said he expects the numbers of students in debt from loans also to increase over the short term. Students who take out loans must go through entrance and exit counseling with SFA, he said, to ensure that they are educated about what loans entail. Once students with loans graduate or leave school, they have six to nine months, depending on the type of loan, to begin repayment. Students who fail garnished wages, legal action or a lowered credit score. seek other sources of funding, such as grants, scholarships or work programs. Loans are kind of a last resort, he said. But unfortunately theyre becoming more and more popular as other sources of funding are decreasing. In addition to reductions in Bright Futures funding, the Academic Competitiveness Grant and the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent grants were eliminated. Pell Grants also faced cuts. For the 2011-2012 school year, Wilder said UF saw a total of $20 million cut from grants and scholarship programs. I dont foresee it getting better in the near future, he said. L O ANS, from page 1 I had no idea there were so many opportunities to get involved with the arts.Fernando Mastersontelecommunications sophomoreCounty Commission approved 2.3 percent increase last weekmanagement. The School Board and the county governments general fund are the two tax rates that play the largest role in determining the overall millage rate. The School Board of Alachua County had the highest property tax rate of any county, with a millage rate of 9.107 mills. This tax rate increased in 2008 with Alachua County voter approval. When looking at the property tax that goes to the countys general fund, Alachua County drops to 16th with a millage rate of 8.3763 mills. Last week, the County Commission approved a 2.3 percent will bring the tax up to 8.5696 mills. County Manager Randall Reid said Alachua County is often compared, unfairly, to that city out west in Leon County. Like Alachua, about 57 percent of the property in Leon County is taxable, as it is home to entities like Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College. The two counties have similar population sizes 247,336 residents here and 275,487 in Leon. However, Reid said, Leon County has had a one-cent sales tax in place for about 30 years, an effort that brings in about $35 million dollars annually to the county. It is really tragic to me that we dont enact this, he said. Alachua County voters have historically voted against the one-cent sales tax, though Reid said it may be on the ballots again in 2012. Right now, property taxes are the main source of funds for county entities like the sheriffs department and county projects like the construction of parks or road repairs, something said. People want lower taxes, Reid said. Well, to do that, theyll have to decide what type of county services they want to get rid of.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 JENNA BOX Alligator Contributing Writer In her Ocala neighborhood, 60-year-old Becky Saucier discovered several feral cats wandering the streets. One male cat started to antagonize her cat for territory. Since 2006, 15 stray and feral test cats have been observed by researchers from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in hopes stray cat populations. The answer was found in GonaCon, an immunocontraceptive vaccine that targets a key reproductive hor mone in the brain called GnRH. UF and the Department of Agriculture have pioneered a single-dose vaccine with long-term effects on fertility in adult female cats, according to a UF news release. The college was issued a $250,000 grant by the Morris Animal Foundation to complete the tive to controlling feral cats, lead researcher Julie Levy said. Of the cats treated with GonaCon, 93 percent showed infertility results for a full year and at the were found to remain infertile. When stray animal populations are treated, it is not essential that every individual animal be infertile, Levy said, just that a large proportion of them are. Saucier said she doesnt necessarily agree with the treatment but she thinks it is a step forward. This new development in contraception for cats would cer tainly be better than killing them, she said.Cat contraception helps control strays ENVIRONMENT SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterA UF-led research team was awarded a $6.3 million grant Thursday to genetically enhance the chemical responsible for creating the scent of Christmas trees to make transportation biofuels. The scent of pine trees comes from terpene, a chemical that is naturally produced and stored in the tree. The liquid terpene can be directly blended with transportation fuels like gasoline. Research tells us that terpene production and storage capacity are controlled in large part by pine tree genetics, said John Davis, co-principal investigator of the project. This means that we can grow varieties with higher amounts of terpenes, which can be used as renewable biofuels. The U.S. Energy Departments Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy awarded the threeyear grant. The agency is a program within the Energy Department that is investing in renewable and domestic production of energy, including biofuels. Davis, along with Gary Peter, the principal investigator of the project, are professors at the UF School of Forest Resources and Conservation. Their collaborators for the project include personnel from the University of California-Berkeley, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and ArborGen LLC, a leading commercial supplier of enhanced seedlings to the forest industry. UF will receive about $2.4 million of the grant. The rest of the $6.3 million goes to the collaborators portion of the work. Existing pine tree varieties have a terpene content of 3 to 5 percent. The researchers hope to develop varieties that accumulate more than 20 percent. At this level of terpene content, pine trees can produce about 100 million gallons of fuel from about 25,000 acres of planted pine, Peter wrote in an email. If our technology is successful, then we can directly produce in a plant, Peter wrote, and extract a biofuel that will be more than two times lower cost than ethanol derived from maize starch and with a much higher energy content.Researchers receive grant to study use of pine tree chemical in biofuels This means that we can grow varieties with higher amounts of terpenes, which can be used as renewable biofuels.John Davisco-principal investigator

Todays question: that you cannot do your job? Did U.S.-born terrorist deserve a trial?Does the War on Terror create an exception for killing U.S. citizens without trial? On Friday, Anwar al-Awlaki, an alleged senior al-Qaida leader, was reportedly killed in Yemen by a U.S. drone strike. Although al-Awlaki has been linked with planning various terror attacks, including the attempt by the Christmas Day underwear bomber, he is still a U.S. citizen. Numerous al-Qaida leaders have been taken out by drone strikes throughout the War on Terror, but al-Awlaki is the beginning of the end to taking down the terrorist group for good at least as a fully operational organization. There will always be terrorists, but it appears that the U.S. government is slowly picking off the masterminds. Do the ends justify the means? It would appear that everyone agrees that if a U.S. citizen takes up arms against his or her own country that they should be treated as an enemy. But should there also be a high standard of evidence to prove this? Yes, there was evidence of al-Awlaki speaking out against the United States and supporting terrorist attacks. But does his citizenship provide him with a higher standard of evidence required to execute this direct attack? Some are saying al-Awlakis citizenship has opened the door for the president to target Americans on a whim and could be an expansion of executive power that goes too far. Others are saying that at least the courts should have been presented with evidence and granted a warrant to the government to take him out. Civil libertarians are saying that he deserved to face trial for his crimes, like terrorist Timothy McVeigh.

Ive been a vegetarian for almost seven years, but I still get weird looks when I order a protein that didnt come from an animal. I get asked things like Youre getting what? What is tempeh? That sounds gross. My usual, witty retort is to claim that you sound gross, so there. (My comebacks cant all be winners, guys.) So what if I want to order tempeh instead of beef? Tempeh is a lot like a veggie burger in texture and taste; its normally made from combining soybeans and a grain, like barley, and then pan-searing or deep-frying it into a sort of patty. I often get it as a burger or as a topping on salad; you can use it exactly as you would ground beef. Plus, you cant go wrong with deep-fried anything, am I right? Sometimes, when ordering Chinese or Japanese food, Ill want to get tofu instead of my usual shrimp. (Im a pescetar call that cheating, but its a necessity for me.) Once again, Ill get funny looks from friends. Ew, tofu? What even is that? I hate tofu, it tastes gross. Im going to let you in on a secret: Tofu only tastes gross tastes like whatever you cook it in or with. So, Im sorry if whatever restaurant you last ate tofu in 10 years ago made it taste weird, but not all tofu is like that. I promise. Over the summer, I became an Iron Chef of tofu. Trust me, there are a ton of different ways to cook and prepare it, and they are all delicious. When I tell people (people whom I have known for years) that Im going to make chicken nuggets, they still do a double take. Sami, but thats chicken! Cue me shaking my head and rolling my eyes. No, guys. Its fake chicken. Ive been a vegetarian the entire time youve known me. Get with it. There are a few brands in grocery stores of vegetarian foods that provide alternatives to traditional protein choices. The Morningstar line is probably my favor ite. It sells ground beef, chicken nuggets and sausage substitutes as well as premade meals. They taste a lot like the original version when cooked the right way even my dad thinks so! Hes the one who does the cooking most of the time at home, so hes had practice. This brings me to a rule of thumb for non-vegetarian friends of vegetarians: If its sold in Publix, youre not allowed to be afraid of it. Its not too crazy or wacky if its etarian proteins for sale there if you look. I think I get such weird looks because humans suffer from a fear of the unknown. When presented with someThis is probably a smart strategy around, lets say, sharks. When it comes to delicious food, though, theres no need to recoil with disgust and then make fun of me for eating. I dont make fun of you guys for eating red meat. While its not the direct cause of heart disease or colorectal cancer, the high amounts of cholesterol arent doing anyone any favors. Of course, its always worse to combine a diet of heavy red meat with other processed foods and sweets. Thats just asking for trouble. So the next time you hear a vegetarian or a kindred spirit order something funky at a restaurant, dont ask why. That will make you sound dumb. Instead, try asking what. Be a little more curious and a little less judgmental. Vegheads around the world will thank you. Sami Main is a journalism junior at UF. Her column appears on Tuesdays.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Trick or Treat? Whats in your chocolate? Halloween is approaching, and although college kids are (hopefully) too old to make rounds in the neighbor hood asking for candy, you will probably gorge yourself on some kind of sweet treat this month. Maybe youll get your hands on a fun-size Snickers bar, some M&Ms or a Hersheys Kiss. Chocolate simple packaged goodness. Ingredients: Cocoa beans, cocoa butter, sugar and milk. Right? Wrong. Other than the concrete ingredients that go in your chocolate, you may not think about the hours of labor that go into the planting, harvesting and distributing of these cocoa beans. Once you learn the truth about whats in your chocolate, it may start to seem more like a trick than a treat. The Ivory Coast is the worlds largest cocoa producer, providing about 43 percent of the worlds cocoa. According to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, there were about 284,000 children working on cocoa farms in hazardous conditions in 2002. U.S. cocoa manufactures such as Hersheys have claimed that they are not responsible for the conditions on cocoa plantations because they do not own them. If children are working on cocoa farms, this means that their families live in dire poverty. These children are working instead of going to school. Because they cannot be educated, the cycle of poverty in their families will continue. This is an unsustainable life-cycle, trapping cocoa harvesters at the bottom of the ranks. Howand today there is an ongoing movement called Fair Trade to help solve it. consumer that the cocoa in his or her chocolate has been har vested by an of-age farmer who is typically a member of a small farming collective. This farmer receives basic rights, living wages and fair working hours. This means his children them to school. the $13 billion U.S. chocolate market. In addition to being the month of Halloween, October is also Fair Trade Month. This month, human rights organizations around the globe are promoting Fair Trade products to increase awareness of these human rights issues and to promote businesses that do the right thing. As consumers in the First World, we need to realize that we markets such as these, and we can use them wisely to vote for companies that practice human rights and sustainability. What can you do? I know we are college students. Most of us would rather drop big bucks on a snazzy Halloween costume this month than on pounds of slave-free chocolate. However, as I mentioned earlier, you can vote with your dollar. This means you can choose when you buy Fair Trade. In my apartment, we bake chocolate chip cookies every week and about half the time, we use Fair Trade semi-sweet chocolate chips. A bag of SunSpire Fair Trade Organic Chocolate Chips for baking runs about $5.50 in Wards Supermarket or Mother Earth. If you are craving a chocolate bar, Divine brand Fair Traderuns about $4 a bar. My roommates really dig the white chocoChocolate is not the only thing that can be Fair Trade-certihuman rights issues attached to them. I brew my own coffee in the morning and use Greenwise in any Publix in Gainesville and runs at only $6 a bag. Look for the Fair Trade logo (a half-black, half-white per son outline holding a basket) on these products to ensure that they are Fair Trade. Each time you purchase a Fair Trade product, you are supporting a business that does the right thing and a new blossoming movement toward making ethical businesses practices a standard. When you have a chocolate treat, try to go the extra mile to purchase Fair Trade. Irene Vailikit is a political science senior at UF. Consumers should promote Fair Trade with chocolate purchasesGuest columnIrene VailikitSpeaking Out This week, Saudi Arabias King Abdullah granted women in his country the right to vote. Whoop-dee-doo. We act like this is news. This is nothing. Womens suffrage is not a novel concept. Most people, including yours truly, believe universal suffrage must be a staple in any truly democratic society. For those of you who are unaware, Saudi Arabia is a monarchy in the Middle East. The United States depends heavily on it for oil, so naturally our diplomatic policy toward the country has been something along the lines of to each his own. And I do mean his. Saudi Arabia is a feminists worst nightmare. Women arent allowed to drive or leave the house unaccompanied by a man. If they do, they can be lashed. It is an extremely conservative and religion-centric society like Mississippi, with a bit more sand. For some reason, every time Saudi Arabia decides to grant its citizens a little more freedom, the world rejoices. Yes, women now have the right to vote, but like I said earlier, they are not allowed to drive or be in public without a male escort. So if their husband doesnt want to take them, they wont be able to vote. Womens suffrage is dependent on male accompani ment. How is that a freedom? All this shows is that King Abdullah and the Saudi Arabian establishment are scared. They are far from stupid. They see whats been going on in Egypt, Libya, Syria and Bahrain. The Arab Spring could be the end of Saudi Arabia as we know it. Having said that, the United States will never openly support a Saudi regime change not unless we are sure the rebels would win. We learned our lesson in the 1970s after aiding Israel despite a threat from Saudi Arabia to cut oil production that resulted in a gas crisis and recession. As long as Saudi Arabias rich, ruling aristocracy can remain in power and in control of the black gold, I can guarantee we wont supply their rebels with weapons. King Abdullah and the Saudi elite are afraid of losing control. Thats why they have done everything they can to keep the masses happy and at bay. While this slight progression toward democracy in Saudi Arabia should be rejoiced, my advice is to remain skeptical. Its not like King Abdullah watched just enough Lifetime Channel to have a change of heart. He has ulterior motives. Deterring the Arab Spring is the kings top priority, and he will continue to provide his people with illusions of freedom in order to accomplish this goal.

ON C AMPUS ORIANA PAOLILLOAlligator Contributing Writer Distinguished atmospheric scientist Katharine Hayhoe will visit UF to talk about a little more than the weather. Hayhoe, a research associate professor of the geosciences department at Texas Tech University, will be speaking at a seminar co-hosted by the Florida Climate Institute and the UF Water Institute. The seminar is scheduled for Thursday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Emerson Alumni Hall Room 209. The purpose of the seminar is to explore the reliability of various climate models, said Carolyn Cox, coordinator for the Florida Climate Institute. Making climate projections for cities is challenging, Cox said. Climate models give a worldwide forecast. Hayhoe will take a look into climate projections by evaluating current models reliability and presenting a new approach to remove model uncertainty. She said she will reveal her new approach at the seminar. Hayhoe is known for developing ways to measure the potential impacts of human activities at the regional scale, Cox said. Hayhoe said climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing this generation. We [in Florida] are particularly vulner able to sea-level rise and climate change geographically, Cox said. Admission to the seminar is free and open to the public. The room holds about 100 people. A question-and-answer section is scheduled for after the seminar, where students will be able to talk to Hayhoe. A lot of people have doubts, and this will be a chance to clear them out, said Wendy-Lin Bartels, post-doctoral research associate for the Florida Climate Institute. Hayhoe will also discuss climate sensitivity and its implications on the projections for Floridas future climate. Climate affects everything around us, Cox said.

With Brantley sidelined, Muschamp said Driskel is the teams starter despite spraining his ankle against Alabama.

The Gators also were exposed multiple times on poor angles to the ball carrier. up front, leveraging the ball and tackling better thats where it all that was the story of the game, and we knew that going in. Richardson ran for a careerhigh 181 yards and two touchdowns, wearing down the UF defense on 29 carries. Muschamp said players were trying to do too much against Alabama instead of taking care of their individual matchup.Multiple issues at fault for lapse in run defenseBig men need love, too. We hate on offensive linemen so much when they fail our teams. No running lanes? Blame the hogs. Sacks? Do your bled snaps? Big men, big men, big men. They dont receive enough praise any football player will tell you that. So lets not fall into such a trap. The big men did great last weekend. Alabamas big men. Saturdays 38-10 loss was decided at the line of scrimmage. Florida couldnt establish the run; Florida couldnt stop the run. Answering all those master-padawan questions about Nick Saban last week, Will Muschamp made it clear that his former boss provided Muschamp with his blueprint for running a college football team. Among those instructions was a simple rule: Use a pro-style offense. On Saturday, we attended a clinic revealing just how much Florida needs to grow to reach Muschamps intended destination: Saban Status. The differ ence in the two programs? About 10 pounds the discrepancy between Floridas average starting offensive lineman (302.2 pounds) and Alabamas bigger big men. the second quarter, they ran some more.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator WriterAfter its worst performance of the season, the Gators defense knew it had to step up, and it did so in a big way this weekend. Against then-No. 12 Tennessee on Sept. 25, Florida allowed a season-high four goals. Following the 4-2 loss, the Gators addressed several areas of concern on defense, resulting in shutouts posted at home against Vanderbilt and Kentucky. To give up four goals in a game is not where we want to be by any stretch of the imagination, coach Becky Burleigh said after the Tennessee game. Two of the Volunteers goals came directly off Gators turnovers. Burleigh emphasized the importance of making sure they were on target whenever they played passes coming from the side and back passes, as miscues can lead to scoring opportunities for the opposition. The advice paid dividends for No. 12 Flor ida (10-3, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) as it played cleaner games in the weekends shutout wins. Last week in practice, the Gators made some tactical adjustments to help the defense. Their system often requires sending many players forward, including the outside backs. If not handled correctly, that style of play can lead to mismatches when the other team goes on the attack. Burleigh said Florida needed to focus on recognizing when it was sending players for ward and taking the correct actions under those circumstances, whether its waiting for help-side defense to step up or keeping players back. The adjustments were evident, as the Gators held the Commodores to three total shots Friday night, while holding the Wildcats to just two shots on goal Sunday. After [the Tennessee game], we kind of focused this weekend on get the shutout, get the shutout, and keeping that in the forefront really helped, senior outside back Jazmyne Avant said Sunday. The play of Avant and the rest of Floridas back line was key in wins during the weekend. Avant, sophomore Maggie Rodgers and junior Kat Williamson were on the pitch for the entirety of both games. Freshman defender Annie Bobbitt played 70 minutes Friday night after coming in for injured junior defender Katie Kadera, and Bobbitt played 90 minutes on Sunday. Burleigh said that although Bobbitt played due to the injury to Kadera, Bobbitt has improved during the course of the season and earned more playing time with her performance in limited minutes. Weve been working with her on her physical presence, which I think shes made a big emphasis to get better at, but she [keeps her composure], Burleigh said of Bobbitt. She is calm on the ball and has excellent distribution. The Gators strong defensive play also earned Williamson multiple honors, as she received her second SEC Defensive Player of the Week award this season. She was also named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffAfter a 4-2 loss to Tennessee on Sept. 25, Gators outside back Jazmyne Avant (right) and the defense responded with two shutout wins during the weekend. SOCCERDefense improves in shutout wins JOE MORGANAlligator WriterBetsy Smith works hard very hard. And there has been nothing but good results for the efforts of No. 13 Floridas junior middle blocker, who has played a bigger role on the court in 2011 than in the past. Shes a special person and player, Wise said. We knew it was going to take time and she just never quit mentally or emotionally. playing time for Smith, who sat behind All-Southeastern Conference First Team selection Lauren Bledsoe and the conferences reigning blocking leader, Cassandra Anderson. Now she sees the court more often, and it is paying dividends for the Gators. Betsy may not be the best jumper in the league, or the fastest player, or the tallest middle in the league, but there are very few who have a higher volleyball IQ, coach Mary Wise said. Id put her work ethic up against anybody. Smith has started 12 matches for Florida this season, posting a .407 hitting percentage, the secondbest mark on the team. Also, she is out-blocking Anderson and currently ranks third in the SEC with 1.13 blocks per set. Her increased role and her consistent numbers are a result of a productive summer, Wise said. There are players that work hard in front of the coaches, but Betsys a player who works very hard when the coaches arent even around, Wise said. Floridas sweep against Georgia had extra meaning for Smith, who was able to play in front of her sister, a freshman student at UGA, and family less than two hours away from her hometown of Atlanta. In her two previous trips to Athens, Ga., Smith only appeared in two sets, but she played all three Sunday. I thought back on the times [Smiths family has come] in the past now in her fourth year in the program where if she got in (against Georgia), it was very limited play, Wise said. Sometimes, she didnt play at all. Although I didnt have an opportunity to talk to her family, I talked to her high school coaches and they were pretty excited. Smith took advantage of the extra time on the court, hitting an errorless .700 for the match, recording a block, four block assists and seven kills. Arguably Smiths biggest play of the match came sophomore setter Chanel Brown to clinch the third and decisive frame. The rally [Sunday] to end the match took a while and I think the story of that match continues to be Betsy Smith, Wise said. It was perfect that she would have the swing at match-point to win it. Jaeckel receives SEC honor: Redshirt senior outside hitter Kristy Jaeckel was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week after her efforts in back-to-back 3-0 sweeps of Auburn and Georgia last weekend. In those two matches, Jaeckel recorded a .455 hitting percentage, 29 kills and 11 block assists.Smith playing larger role, providing production at middle blocker for UFthe Gators defense didnt want any more, until the unit that ranks third in the Southeastern Conference against the run resorted to piggy-back rides and arm tackles. Defensive end Sharrif Floyd said after the game that fatigue stats. Crimson Tide running back Trent Richardson gained a careerhigh 181 yards on the ground; Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey combined for 8 yards on 14 carries. Alabamas defense notched three sacks; Florida got zero. The Tide held on to the ball for 18:40 in the break. Not all of this can be chalked up to the big men. John Brantleys leg injury changed the complexion of the game, kind of. He was playing the best game of his career, but even that was not enough. ing yards, Demps and Rainey gained 1 yard on eight carries. Some will argue that Alabamas hogs werent the difference, that Richardson and his grown-ass-man strength carried the Tide. But backup Eddie Lacy was just as effective, averaging 6.4 yards per carry. So, how do Floridas big men get some love? They have to get bigger. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis found himself in a similar situation when he took over at Notre Dame. After three seasons with offensive lines averaging 300 pounds or lighter, the Irish bulked up in 2008, when players recruited by Weis went through the teams training program. The Irishs opening-day starting linemen averaged 315.4 pounds about 15 pounds heavier than the average lineman the year before. Expect a similar jump in Gainesville as Muschamp and Weis try to create a Tuscaloosa-feel at the line of scrimmage. For now, though, the Gators face a steep battle. LSUs offensive line is even bigger than Alabama. And dont forget Georgia. The Dawgs will bring the heaviest o-line in the nation to Jacksonville when they play the Gators on Oct. 29. That line averages 329.4 pounds, and it will expect love. A whole lot of love. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. TYLER, from page 14 UF V olle yball Burleigh

They have to play better, With a game in Baton Rouge, La., against No. 1 LSU coming this Satur to respond well to the challenge. We have a bunch of prideful guys in here, Muschamp said.
