The validation vote was scheduled for last week, but the UF Supreme Court postponed it while the Election Commission investigated the elections procedures.

BRASCH Alligator Contributing Writer A student was injured early Tuesday evening at Sisler Hall when a sensitive chemical compound exploded in his hands. Hamed Ibrahim, 26, was transferring a vial with four grams of Benzotriazol-1-yl-sulfonyl azide, a shock-sensitive chemical compound, to a scale to weigh it at about 4:50 p.m. The chemical became unstable when he transferred it from the vial to the scale, said Richard Gainesville Fire Rescue. When the compound exploded, it caused minor cuts to Ibrahims face, hands and lower forearms, he said. Ibrahim was taken to Shands, where he was treated for minor injuries, said Janine Sikes, director of UF public affairs. Other students were in the lab at the time of the explosion but did not feel the direct effects of the explosion. Judit Kovacs, a chemistry Ph.D. student, was three feet from the explosion when it happened. ringing and felt clogged. gine arrived, Ibrahim had cleaned himself off and was waiting outside the evacuated building, said Todd Ellis, a lieutenant with the Hazmat team.

He made a joke of it, Gasca said, but I was embarrassed. Her grandpa received the advertisements because her personal email was hacked and sending malicious spam without her knowledge. If he hadnt called, I wouldnt have even known, Gasca said. Three in 10 teens and young adults have had their Twitter, Facebook, email or other Internet accounts hacked, according to a new MTV/Associated Press poll. Thats double the number reported in 2009.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 MIGUEL CHATELOINAlligator Contributing WriterMelisa Bieden didnt get to celebrate her birthday this week or get a cupcake in her name. Twenty-eight years ago, her biological mother was raped, became pregnant with her and, against Biedens grandparents encouragement to have an abortion, gave birth and put her up for adoption. She and others still got to eat free cupcakes to celebrate the birthdays that could have been when they passed by Cupcakes for Life, an event that UF Pro-Life Alliance held to promote its pro-life message Tuesday morning on the Plaza of the Americas. Members of the organization displayed nearly 200 homemade cupcakes on a table and invited passers-by to decorate one with frosting and sprinkles. UF Pro-Life Alliance Co-President Brianne Unhoefer said the organization chose to give out cupcakes because it wanted to be more loving and friendly. Different methods reach different people, Unhoefer said. This is another way to get them to think about it. Some didnt agree with the message but liked the concept. some, said Max Redmond, a computer science junior who is pro-choice. I dont really agree with this at all, but Im just going to take the cupcake and quietly walk away. UF Pro-Life Alliance Co-President Gina Claveria said the organization has taken different approaches to spread awareness about its cause. Two years ago, it co-sponsored an event with the Genocide Awareness Project in which photos of bloody fetuses were displayed on the North Lawn. UF Pro-Life Alliance hasnt used the same method or worked with the Genocide Awareness Project since, according to Claveria. Why would they put this up? said Claveria. I dont believe scare tactics are effective at all. This puts the personhood back into the message.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011Courtesy to the Alligator / Jesse Jones EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterIn an effort to consolidate its specialty practices and grow with the Gainesville population, UF&Shands broke ground Monday on its newest care center, UF&Shands at Springhill. The $35.5 million facility, to be located at Northwest 39th Avenue and Northwest 89th Boulevard, just off of Exit 390 on Interstate 75, is expected to be completed by January 2013. The four-story, 11,600-square-foot Springhill center will incorporate specialty practices including neurology, cardiology, dermatology, psychiatry and womens health. The majority of these practices will be moved from their original locations to the Springhill location as their current leases expire. The facility will provide services including X-rays, mammograms, ultrasounds and clinical lab testing. David Guzick, president of the UF&Shands Health System, said this project is the next step in the systems strategic plan to develop primary care facilities based on population trends. The most recent example of this was the beginning of construction on the UF&Shands Family Medicine at Main. Northwest Alachua County is one of the fastest growing areas in the county, he said. Were trying to serve the needs of the community as best we can, he said. By congregating specialty practices on a couple of process for patients.UF&Shands breaks ground on specialty practices health center EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterBefore posting all those pictures of moments you may or may not remember from last weekend on Bourbon Street, you might want to think twice about who will see them. According to a study of 300 professionals involved in the hir ing process at their companies, 91 percent use social media sites to screen job applicants. Of those professionals, 69 per cent said they have rejected a candidate based on material posted on a social media site. The reasons for rejection included things like negative or inappropriate pictures or comments, inconsistencies in their informadential or negative information about a previous employer. Reppler, a company that seeks to help people manage their online image, released the study in late September. Currently a free service, Reppler analyzes peoples online images across social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Launched in April, Reppler will soon be expanding to include analysis sites like YouTube and Tumblr, founder Vlad Gorelik said. The application can be downloaded on Facebook or from its website, reppler.com. It works to evaluate peoples overall online image by analyzing things like the tone of the language used on their ing the most content on their page and the time of day during which they are most active this could he or she was most active during work hours. Reppler also analyzes the makeup of a persons social network connections to show how they interact or overlap. The applior security issues with each acor questionable content. In todays digital world, Gorelik said, managing your online image is just as important as having an impressive cover letter or a resume. Your online image is often a before you shake their hand, he said. Indeed, the study showed that 47 percent of recruiters looked at applicants social networking sites before actually speaking with them. Twenty-seven percent did so after having an initial conver sation with the applicants, and 4 percent did so only before making a job offer. Heather White, interim director of the UF Career Resource Center, said the CRC works to educate students to be aware of what theyre posting. She suggested that students Google themselves and go through their pictures and comments to make sure everything is appropriate for a potential employer to see. friends only, you still need to be careful, she said. However, its not just about controlling negative messages. Students presences on social mesaid. LinkedIn can be a powerful networking tool that acts like an online resume, she said. A Facebook page can be similarly helpful if students update things like their work experience, community involvement and leadership positions. In fact, 68 percent of respondents to Repplers survey said they had hired a candidate because of positive things they saw on social networking sites. You need to always make sure that you put your best foot for ward, Gorelik said. And these days, thats by managing your online image.Social media a factor for job recruiters MAGGIE POWERSAlligator Contributing WriterEach sign looked the same. Big, black, bold letters held by students and faculty reading one of the following: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, ally, asexual or pansexual. Although they looked simple, these signs represented the complexity of coming out. To celebrate National Coming Out Day, UFs Pride Student Union and LGBT Affairs set up information tables and a rainbow balloon arch on the Plaza of the Americas Tuesday afternoon. The representatives encour aged students to ask questions and be photographed under the rainbow arch while holding a sign denoting their sexual identities. Lauren Hannahs, director of LGBT Affairs at UF, said some institutions host weekand month-long celebrations. National Coming Out Day began in 1988, Hannahs said. Its all about raising visibility, spreading the word and trysupportive campus climate, Hannahs said. Bridget Siegel, 19, the exter nal vice president of PSU, said coming out is a continuous process with multiple phases. Siegel, a religious studies sophomore, said she hopes one day people of the LGBT comwho they are instead of for their sexual orientation. She said she still thinks National Coming Out Day is something to celebrate until that period of acceptance comes. Pride History Week will last from Oct. 17 through Oct. 22, said 18-year-old Andrew Brennick, the assistant director of the weeks events. Each day will feature skits about different gender expressions from history and a guest speaker on the history of transgenders, he said. The week will conclude with a gay pride gathering downtown. People do not have to be a part of PSU to participate in the weeks festivities.

Todays question: Has anyone ever hacked into your Facebook or Twitter account?Swing and a MissStudent Government had chance to be fairWay to go, UF Student Government. You blew it. This was your chance to prove that you were not an incompetent, corrupt and useless governing body. You had the opportunity to show that there is some shred of internal validity within your organization. And then you go and do something like this. How can the UF Supreme Court rule, according to Tuesdays article, that there was not enough harm done to merit an invalidation of the SG election and a subsequent re-vote? Not enough harm done? Did you forget, SG, that the students control you and not the other way around? Did you forget that you are funded with their money? It doesnt matter that the results might have been unaffected or unchanged by a proper vote. The bigger issue at hand here is that the election was botched and the voice of the students was not accurately represented. If you claim to represent the voice of UF students, then you might want to start by doing it legally and through fair electoral processes. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad probably thinks he represents the voice of the Iranian people, too, but we all know that is not entirely accurate. The UF Supreme Court, if it is going to call itself impartial, should treat a governing body that controls millions of student dollars with a little bit more scrutiny. How could Associate Justices Cecily Welsh and Tim Mason think a re-vote would do more harm than good? For one thing, it would be a chance to retest the voting sys(You could also actually follow your own code and test the system two days beforehand, but whos counting?) Its not like SG is trying to solve the national debt, so what harm is there in making the candidates campaign again? Poor, poor SG members. We wouldnt want you to have to do any more work than you have to. We wouldnt want you to have all those fraternities and sororities put up signs again, and we know how much of a pain walking around campus and handing out little cards can be. But we think the students would not mind a little more harassment this semester with the knowledge that an actual fair election process was taking place. do its job correctly? Thats just too much to ask. Or is it that youre afraid a re-vote would drive more people to vote against the Unite Party due to its unprofessional and irresponsible behavior during this entire ordeal? And students, if you do not care about this issue, you should. Its your money.Staying in school makes students unproductiveIs your college education really worth the money and debt? Maybe. Once upon a time, it might have been, but increasingly lower standards, government loans and a surplus of college graduate degree. Yes, technically employers scrutinize applicants based on whether an applicant went to a university or not, but did the education process create a more knowledgeable individual? As a student, do you really feel equipped to conquer insur mountable problems in the real world? Ever since elementary school, children are programmed to believe that the only way to ever achieve success in life is to earn a college degree. tion released a documentary on YouTube called College Conspiracy. According to the NIA, currently 70.1 percent of high school graduates will attend a college or university despite In the 1960s, less than half of all high school graduates attended college. Not obtaining a college degree was not a death sentence. At this time, Americans are the most educated individuals in our history, yet we are currently in the middle of an economic downturn. A poll conducted by Northeastern University and reported by The New York Times says that as of 2009, only 55.6 percent of college graduates younger than 25 work in a position that requires a degree while 22 percent of them work in a position that does not. The rest do not work at all. The documentary shows how the government and the est economic bubbles in history. The federal government has public loans, and it is killing the economy. The longer students stay in school without a job, the longer people are not being productive. nian, co-founder of Reddit.com, said, There are plenty of students from just avoiding a lot of the college stuff and just trying to create something. A surplus of college-educated, minimum-wage workers is not the only problem in education reform. Students need to be actively involved in settings that are spebetter in groups. Some have auditory learning styles while others learn through visuals. Sir Ken Robinson, a British author and TED speaker, has been championing the torch in the urgency of immediate education reform starting from the top down. He believes the public educational system is out of date, constructed by people in the Industrial Revolution whose perspectives are radically different from those of people today. Every country on Earth, at the moment, is reforming them is economic. How do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century? And the second is cultural. It is for our cultural identity, Robinson said during his Changing Paradigms speech. chaic in design. Peers, parents and bureaucrats are doing a disservice to students by discrediting their interests and talents as unimportant such as in the arts. Robinson continued, We are getting our children through education by anesthetizing them. We should be waking them to what is inside of themselves. Students should protest for improvements like Students Against Mandates. Government should take a backseat and let the free-market decide. Nicholas Butler is a journalism sophomore at UF.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 As Homer Simpson would say, Woo Hoo! Fox announced Friday that it has renewed contracts for its multibillion-dollar hit, The Simpsons, for two more seasons. This comes after weeks of head-butting negotiations between the network and its leading character voices. As a 22-year-old, I can say I dont remember a time when the Simpsons didnt exist. Now, in its 23rd season, Fox threatened to pull the plug on the longest on-air animated TV show. The reason? Negotiations between the network and the six actors who voice the worlds most recognizable animated characters were at a standoff over you guessed it money! On Oct. 4, 20th Century Fox Television released this statement: Twenty-three seasons in, The Simpsons is as creatively vibrant as ever and beloved by millions around the world. We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we el. We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement with the voice cast that allows The Simpsons to go on enter taining audiences with original episodes for many years to come. As you might imagine, the actors did not take the news well. According to The Daily Beast, the actors proposed to take a cut of around 30 percent in salary in exchange for a small chandising. That seems reasonable, right? The network makes billions of dollars every year from global syndication and merchandising of Simpsons merchandise. Wrong. The networks responded to the actors proposal by delivering a staggering ultimatum: If the cast didnt accept a 45-percent pay cut, the show would be canceled. According to The Daily Beast, the shows lead voices, which include Hank Azaria, Yeardley Smith, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner and Harry Shearer, make $8 million a season. The pay cut would have reduced their salaries to $4 million. Is it wrong for these actors to want a piece of the pie? After all, they play a major role in the success of the show. If the network really needs to cut costs to keep the show running, surely there are other shows on the lineup with far fewer ratings. The terms of the new deal were not released. The Hollywood a 30-percent pay cut as opposed to the 45 percent pay cut the network was previously demanding. If the sites sources are correct, under the new deal the actors will be making about $6 million a season. Its unknown if the actors managed to get a Kaylanie Alvarez is a journalism senior at UF.Foxs stubbornness, corporate greed almost killed The SimpsonsGuest columnKaylanie AlvarezSpeaking Out This is a response to Travis Hornsbys column from Monday called Why I am no longer liberal-minded. I would much rather spend my post-work hours doing something relaxing rather than writing a guest column, but I must do something about the rage headache your column has caused me. I realize theres little I can do about the dehumanizing nature of the study of economics, but I cannot allow you to continue to spread delusional conclusions about an economic system weve been watching crumble before our very eyes for the past two years. First, Id like to state that we have a couple of things in common. I am also an ex-Obama campaigner and a non-liberal. I also write and work actively against some of the Obama administrations policies but for reasons much different than your own. The tions that contributed to the economic crisis, for example, was an absolute disaster. Ironically the bailout was government welfare (at a much higher level than social welfare programs could ever hope to attain) for institutions that practice the economic ideology you so proudly uphold. You may not be wealthy, as a previous guest columnist suggested, but you are cer tainly of privilege. From a global perspective, being a white male born on American soil could very well be the most privileged combination of qualities a person can have. As an Ecuadorian-born female with brown skin tone, Id like to share with you some things your economic courses may not have allowed you to understand we, the poor, dont sit around waiting for our next government check. We work the hardest and longest out of the entire labor force while receiving the least economic reward. So please discontinue suggesting that poor people are to rise up against their condition because of incentives by the big, evil government. Although you try to paint yourself as average, your assertion that millionaires are no different from you except for a few zeros in their bank account already sets you apart from the majority of the population. If that assertion is correct, Im forced to assume you do not know what its like to live without health insurance or to watch your parents home be foreclosed. This is not the experience of millionaires, but it is certainly the current reality of millions of Americans around the country. If you decide to expand your horizons, I would strongly recommend you take a course on labor history so you could shed, or at least open, the tired notion of unions as monopolies or threats to economic growth. I would also recommend you educate yourself on the issues of wealth mobility and inheritance wealth and how these two factors impact the ability of minority populations to break away and rise up from centuries of inequality, disenfranchisement and racism. In fact, please educate yourself about minor ity issues in general to understand how we Most importantly, do not give up the social (human) perspective when you continue pursuing your economics major. I certainly hope you never arrive at a point in which you view human beings as nothing more than numbers on a chart. If Im not mistaken, that is the same mentality that has inspired thousands to descend upon Wall Street to demand economic justice.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 LOCAL MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterLocal law enforcement agencies follow the law when providing public records, but their policies differ in ways that can have an effect on residents watches and pocketbooks. The public records departments of the University Police Department, Gainesville Police Department and Alachua Florida state statutes, better known as the public records law. State law requires agencies to redact certain information from public records before providing them for requests such as Social Security numbers and drivers license numbers, said The time it takes for these agencies to complete records requests, however, varies depending on what a person asks for. For a copy of a lengthy homicide investigation report, for example, it may take more than a day or two for clerks to review the documents and redact any information that state statutes require be kept private. It really depends on the nature of the request and what utes for employees to print out the report, Fundenburg said. While GPD strives to complete requests as quickly as possible, its policy is that they may take up to 72 hours to complete, said Claudia Hendrix, records coordinator and manager of the GPD records division. Ninety-nine percent of the time, it doesnt take 72 hours or more to complete a request, she said. It becomes stressful for employees when someone walks present in court that day. The employees then feel the need to obtain those records immediately, despite a backlog of other requests. Their crisis could become your crisis, Hendrix said. There is that point in GPD where we can say it could take 72 hours. pleting records requests at UPD, but he said it depends on the request and that efforts are made to provide information as quickly as possible. Florida law permits agencies to charge for requests, and UPD, GPD and ASO have different policies for these fees. At ASO, people requesting case reports may have to pay some fees, although crash reports and arrest records are provided for free, Fundenburg said. GPD also has a 15-cent-per-page fee, but employees can generally charge at their discretion after a report passes the of $1 for all incident and accident reports. Public records requests may require similar fees through UPD, although it depends on the type and extent of the request, Barber said. Were not out here to make money on this, he said. This is an issue where were guided by the state statute.Police records request process can be stressful, costly Their crisis could become your crisis.Claudia Hendrixrecords coordinator and manager of the GPD records division

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Basketball Media Day Is TodayStay tuned to alligatorSports.org and make sure to pick up a copy of Thursdays paper, as we will be bringing you coverage from the mens and womens basketball media days. Dee Finley Rumored To Be TransferringJeff Barlis of the Gainesville Sun is reporting that linebacker Dee Finley has chosen to transfer from Florida. A UF spokesman withheld comment Tuesday. BACK TO RECEIVE MORE CARRIES THIS WEEK. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff WriterFor as long as he has been at Florida, running back Mike Gillislee has sat behind Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey. It appears those days are over. With the Gators offense struggling to put up points in back-to-back losses to Alabama and LSU, and with Demps banged up and Rainey struggling to break free against top He ran for a team-high 56 yards on just nine carries against the Tigers last week, and Gillislee brought a facet to the Florida offense that neither Demps nor Rainey could. Coach Will Muschamp said Monday he ran with toughsentiment Tuesday. Getting hit is part of his game, Weis said. Theres times where if he has a choice to make somebody miss or dance or try to run through somebody, hes a guy that will try and run them over. Even before quarterback John Brantley went down with an injured right ankle, the Gators offense hummed when it was able to pound the ball on the ground. With Brantley out, the unit has been stagnant. While all three backs are similar, the hope is that Gillislee can step in and spark a rushing resurrection, starting with running the ball between the tackles something Demps and Rainey werent able to accomplish. Were all the same kind of running back, Gillislee said. But by me being bigger, I (give the defense a differ ent look) by me going through the middle. Gillislee hits the hole quickly instead of dancing around and looking for space. He likes to run in (between the tackles), offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said. Most running backs cant get to the outside fast enough. But he likes it in there; he likes contact. Gillislee said learning the pass-protection schemes in Well, that, and the presence of Demps and Rainey. Still, Rainey isnt upset at the prospect of losing some Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida running back Mike Gillislee could receive more carries this week against No. 24 Auburn after rushing for a team-high 56 yards on nine carries against No. 1 LSU last week. Gillislee stepping into larger role TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterFlorida has a quarterback competition on its hands this week. After freshman Jacoby Brissett started against No. 1 LSU last week while fellow freshman Jeff Driskel was sidelined with an ankle injury, Driskel is back in practice and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said the ankle has been a non-factor. Weis said both have taken snaps in practice, although they werent split evenly. However, Weis said both would be ready when Florida travels to take on No. 24 Auburn because they each are getting plenty of reps in practice. With senior John Brantley still sidelined with an ankle injury of his own, Weis said Brissett and Driskel could both will be tailored for both. While the competition is open, Weis was impressed with what he saw from Brissett against LSU. Brissett completed 8 of 14 passes for 94 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, but Weis was most pleased Brissetts poise in a hostile environcareer. Theres a lot of good practice players that when it comes times to play in a game, they disappear, Weis said. He isnt one of them.Driskels ankle not an issueCan UF open up the offense?Tyler: Flor idas offense will be more complex this week. It cer tainly wont be getting any simpler. Whether Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel take snaps Saturday, offensive coordinator Charlie quarterback than he did the week before. And that will be the case each week until John Brantley returns. Seven days isnt a lot of time, certainly not enough for any season-changing revelations that turn Brissett or Driskel into polished passers. Sorry. However, both quarterbacks can grow more in those seven days than an experienced player like Brantley can. That doesnt mean either will be better than Brantley they can just improve more, because they have more room to develop. Think about any skill you have tried to pick up. The most weeks. And being a capable Southeastern Conference quarterback is an acquired skill. Greg: There is no reason to think Flor idas quarterbacks will be worse, but that doesnt mean the offense will expand. Both have struggled to execute the limited portion of the game plan they have been entrusted with, and burdening them with more wont help.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterTo the Gators, brotherly love looks sweeter in orange and blue. Floridas Josh and Alex Izewski and Derek and Daniel Wehunt give a different twist to team unity, looking to use their sibling rivalries to propel Floridas cross country team to the top of the ranks. The Izewski brothers have quickly given their coach, Todd Morgan, a reason to smile. Josh, the teams lone senior, leads by ginning his last year with success, freshman Alex is just starting to well. To Morgan, building a championship-caliber team requires more than providing better times; its also about better leadership. At the start of the season, Morgan called on both Josh and Derek, a junior, to act as mentors. Each having younger siblings, the two ence could have and are trying to share that with others. I can teach [Alex] from all the mistakes I made my freshman year so he doesnt make the same mistakes, Josh said about his younger brother. As his time at UF concludes, Josh wants to pass on his knowledge and wisdom to Alex. Although Derek and Daniel havent gotten off to a quick start like the Izewski brothers, they still exemplify the mentor-and-pupil aspect of the team. Morgans desire for experienced runners to take charge has made Josh and Derek the leaders while molding the younger ones, like Alex and Daniel, into more knowledgeable and well-rounded individuals. On Friday, the Gators will need the leaders and the younger runners to step up when they compete in the Wisconsin adidas Invitational, one of the biggest meets of the season with 39 mens teams and 42 womens teams participating. In a meet that large, Morgan said some of the younger runners have a tendency to get lost in the crowd. But he hopes the Gators will show some brotherly love to help each other if the situation arises this weekend. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Alligator File PhotoFlorida senior Josh Izewski, and younger brother Alex Izewski, are one of two sets of brothers helping motivate the mens team. Brothers rivalry pushing Gators KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterCord Sandberg is a 16-year-old multitasking machine. As a freshman, he practiced with the Bradenton Manatee High varsity squad, led his junior varsity team to an undefeated season offs. As a sophomore, he led Manatee to a 13-1 season that ended Thomas Aquinas. That season, he threw for 2,855 yards and 25 touchdowns while rushing for 579 yards and 10 touchdowns. Sandberg also said he hit .399 on the baseball team in the Its fair to say the 6-foot-2, 190-pound dual-threat quarterback and two-sport prospect has a few avenues to pursue. Now a junior, Sandberg and the Hurricanes are 3-2, with close losses against No. 10 Olney (Md.) Prep. He has collected offers from Auburn, Clemson, Cincinnati and Iowa State, while also talking to coaches and drawing inter est from Alabama, FSU, Stanford, Texas, Tennessee and Florida. Right now, my options are open as far as football or baseball, Sandberg said. During football season, Im going 100 per cent and loving it. But when it ends, its baseball season and I give (that) everything Ive got. Whatever happens next year senior year is probably what Ill end up doing. Im not sure yet right now, though. After his freshman season, Sandberg had already been around the recruiting circuit with trips to Auburn, Clemson and Florida. ary. This summer, Sandberg was invited to Gainesville for a oneday offensive and defensive line camp to put his arm on display, an experience he enjoyed. I talked to (Florida offensive coordinator Charlie) Weis, and he seemed like a pretty bright guy as far as offense and developing quarterbacks, Sandberg said. If they were interested in me consider for sure. Sandberg also has some family ties to Florida. His father, UFs baseball team in 1979. I am open to wherever as of right now, Sandberg said. But Personally, I want to go to a place where the coaches and atmosphere feel right. So whatever happens, happens.Top 2013 QB recruit weighing optionsBrantley vs. Tebow, jump passes and redshirt possibilitiesWelcome back to another edition of The Mailbag. Floridas football team may be struggling, but were still on top of our game and ready to answer another batch of questions, so lets see what youve got. @AlligatorArmy: On a scale of one to Trey Burton, how would you rate the Gators ratio of perceived talent to actual talent? Judging by the wording of this question, you must be of the belief that Burton is on the high end of that actual-talent scale. Bur ton doesnt perceive the Honey Badger-led is basically a wash. Were trying to come up with a knowledgeable answer, but all we Inception taunting us. Is what we perceive actually reality? @PhilipGaryTalks: Will we see a lineup with Andre Debose, Jeff Demps, Chris RainNah, no chance of seeing that lineup. While it is arguably the most talented lineup of position players Florida can trot out to the wont use a three-running back set, and while Rainey is the teams leading receiver, he is not a true receiver. @zachmoller: Who will have more wins as starter the rest of the season: Tim Tebow or John Brantley? Cam Newton. He has all the tools, and teams. As far as our two other favorite Gators quarterbacks, were going with Timmy. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as he will play the rest of the season. It looks like his elbow is going to fall off every time he throws, but Tebow has done last couple of years. We know the Broncos suck, but they get to play the Chiefs twice. And the Chiefs really suck. Right, Char lie? @JLBOB: Does anyone actually care that LSU scored on a jump pass? I see a lot of peoDo fans care? Probably not. Were sure they were all beside themselves when the had the audacity to pull that play on Florida the play the Gators made famous against the Tigers. But after that, were sure fans cared more trick play with the game well in hand. Florida players, however, werent too thrilled by the play. Defensive lineman Jaye Howard said he ing game coordinator Billy Gonzales, who left Florida on bad terms in 2009, laughing. @JLBOB: Since it is still technically possible for both freshman quarterbacks to be redshirted, should one of them sit, and which one? If you want to go that route (which we dont suggest), you obviously keep Driskel out. Today, both players are eligible for a medical redshirt not a traditional one. To qualify, a player must (a) prove he sufand (c) stay out of every game after week six. Saturday will be the seventh week. Brissett wont be a candidate. He doesnt of), and he wont be suffering any without playing in a game. And if he plays in a game, it will be after week six, obviously. Driskel could, on the other hand, qualify because he has only played in three games. Muschamp is telling reporters (shocking, we know), then maybe they keep him out for the rest of the season. But you dont go out of your way to get Driskel a redshirt. If Brantley is out, Driskel is Floridas best quarterback. Thats why he was No. 2 on the depth chart.THE MaAILBaA G I can teach him from all the mistakes I made my freshman year, so he doesnt make the same mistakes.Josh IzewskiUF runner UF Recruiting

Teammates said Brissett commanded the huddle and kept his composure in Death Valley, something Weis noticed about the quarterback when he saw Brissett play basketball at Palm Beach Gar dens Dwyer High. While Weis admitted taking a conservative approach to the LSU game, he said Brissetts perfor mance was not the reason Florida lost the game. Patchan seeing more time: Junior left tackle prominent role in the Gators offensive line. games, Patchan has played extensively against Alabama and LSU. when he got the nod over junior Xavier Nixon, who has been plagued by penalties and poor play this season. Sophomore guard Kyle Koehne believes Nixon was benched due to a lack of performance. However, Weis said Patchan earned the chance to start. Matt is a physical player, Weis said. When he knows what hes doing and can really turn it loose, he can be a dominant, physical presence, and I think thats what hes shown. Patchan had a standout performance against the Tigers, Weis said. Discipline problems: During Saturdays loss to LSU, Florida became the most penalized team in the nation. The Gators now have 55 for 425 yards in six games. Koehne attributed the penalties to a lack of discipline, adding that coaches are cracking down on it in practice to avoid similar mental lapses in games, too. Youll probably be pulled, Koehne said. Theyre unacceptable right now for how many weve been getting per game. Theyre not being tolerated. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org. Driskels numbers have been pretty poor through four games: 7 of 16, 73 yards and two inter ceptions. At times he looked nervous, scared and unsure of himself. Brissett was serviceable against LSU, but if you take down, he was just 7 of 13 with 29 yards and two interceptions. And Florida only let him or chestrate about 56 percent of the offensive plays not exactly a ringing endorsement of his grasp of the offense. Give these guys some time to digest what theyre working with before giving them more to swallow. Tyler: Brissett taking only half the offensive snaps has little to do with his grasp of the offense, or lack thereof. Weis didnt replace him with another quarterback; he replaced him with a special package to kickstart the running game. Trey Burton and Chris Rainey took snaps out of the shotgun because the Gators could not establish the run with Brissett in the game. LSU dared Brissett to handled his freshman with kid gloves. Weis wont do that Saturday because Auburn will crowd the line. Florida became more complex in the second half at LSU, and Brissett looked OK. He wasnt good, obviously, than most expected. That deep It was a good throw. And although Brissett made plenty of mistakes, he never panicked. Greg: Being calm is one thing, being prepared to run Weis offense is something else entirely. Floridas inability to run the ball when Brissett was in the game cant be brushed over. To some extent, those struggles fall on him. The experience he got playing against LSU is supposed to be a big factor in his development, but he only completed one pass in the second half. Tyrann Mathieu was the last player to catch one of his throws. Its not like he made improvements as the game went along and can carry that over to next week. Id envision a jump in perfor mance if he had been nervous and jittery Saturday, because hed probably calm down and play better in his second start. But the mental part was already there. So why should I expect his skills to improve enough to change the offense in only seven days? Tyler: THEIR INABILITY TO RUN THE BALL HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH HIS GRASP OF THE OFFENSE. It was about Weis play calling. Why dont you understand that? Also, his skills werent really in question. His problems were mental as are the problems of every freshman. His skills arent going to improve in seven days, but his comfort level will. Nobody is asking him to morph into Peyton Manning. The offense was so stripped down last weekend; of course, it can be more complex. Florida wont look like it did it wont be as simple as it was last weekend. Greg: The struggles on the ground may have been related to play-calling, but the play-calling was related to Brissett. He wasnt ready to execute more than he did last weekend, or he would have done it. And by admitting that he needs to increase his comfort level, youre accepting that he wasnt comfortable with what they did against LSU. And the stats back you up on that one. Giving him more to learn is a good way to take a step back, because he would have a whole new set of variables, he would need time to get comfortable with. Thats why Floridas attack will look pretty much the same against Auburn: so Brissett can master the offense one step at a time.

RallALL Y, from page 14Patchan earning more time at LT NOTEBOOK, from page 14Weis said Gillislee a team playertouches, saying his teammate brings a lot to the table. Gillislee said he was never frustrated by a lack of carries in the past, calling himself a team player, and he added that not much will change knowing hes in line for a larger workload this week against Auburn. My team always brought me up; they never put me down, he said. I was just always waiting my turn. the offense this week was that Gillislees performance shows what can happen when you dont open your mouth and just work hard. Most of these guys have illusions of grandeur and think theyre the best guy on the team, Weis said. Hes a lesson for a lot of these guys that are backups to see what can happen if you prepare to be ready and they call your number and you produce. Thats going to get him on In two years and some change in Gainesville, Gillislee has just 123 carries more than 100 less rushes than what Demps and Rainey have received. But his numbers are almost as impressive: 6.8 yards per rush, 10 touchdowns and a career-long rush of 60 yards, which came ear lier this year against Kentucky. Every time I run the ball, I never know when Im going to get it again, he said, so I try to run it as hard as I can while Ive got it. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.

He made a joke of it, Gasca said, but I was embarrassed. Her grandpa received the advertisements because her personal email was hacked and sending malicious spam without her knowledge. If he hadnt called, I wouldnt have even known, Gasca said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 MIGUEL CHATELOINAlligator Contributing WriterMelisa Bieden didnt get to celebrate her birthday this week or get a cupcake in her name. Twenty-eight years ago, her biological mother was raped, became pregnant with her and, against Biedens grandparents encouragement to have an abortion, gave birth and put her up for adoption. She and others still got to eat free cupcakes to celebrate the birthdays that could have been when they passed by Cupcakes for Life, an event that UF Pro-Life Alliance held to promote its pro-life message Tuesday morning on the Plaza of the Americas. Members of the organization displayed nearly 200 homemade cupcakes on a table and invited passers-by to decorate one with frosting and sprinkles. UF Pro-Life Alliance Co-President Brianne Unhoefer said the organization chose to give out cupcakes because it wanted to be more loving and friendly. Different methods reach different people, Unhoefer said. This is another way to get them to think about it. Some didnt agree with the message but liked the concept. some, said Max Redmond, a computer science junior who is pro-choice. I dont really agree with this at all, but Im just going to take the cupcake and quietly walk away. UF Pro-Life Alliance Co-President Gina Claveria said the organization has taken different approaches to spread awareness about its cause. Two years ago, it co-sponsored an event with the Genocide Awareness Project in which photos of bloody fetuses were displayed on the North Lawn. UF Pro-Life Alliance hasnt used the same method or worked with the Genocide Awareness Project since, according to Claveria. Why would they put this up? said Claver ia.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011Courtesy to the Alligator / Jesse Jones EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterIn an effort to consolidate its specialty practices and grow with the Gainesville population, UF&Shands broke ground Monday on its newest care center, UF&Shands at Springhill. The $35.5 million facility, to be located at Northwest 39th Avenue and Northwest 89th Boulevard, just off of Exit 390 on Interstate 75, is expected to be completed by January 2013. The four-story, 11,600-square-foot Springhill center will incorporate specialty practices including neurology, cardiology, dermatology, psychiatry and womens health. The majority of these practices will be moved from their original locations to the Springhill location as their current leases expire. The facility will provide services including X-rays, mammograms, ultrasounds and clinical lab testing. David Guzick, president of the UF&Shands Health System, said this project is the next step in the systems strategic plan to develop primary care facilities based on population trends. The most recent example of this was the beginning of construction on the UF&Shands Family Medicine at Main. Northwest Alachua County is one of the fastest growing areas in the county, he said. Were trying to serve the needs of the community as best we can, he said. By congregating specialty practices on a couple of process for patients.UF&Shands breaks ground on specialty practices health center EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterBefore posting all those pictures of moments you may or may not remember from last weekend on Bourbon Street, you might want to think twice about who will see them. According to a study of 300 professionals involved in the hir ing process at their companies, 91 percent use social media sites to screen job applicants. Of those professionals, 69 per cent said they have rejected a candidate based on material posted on a social media site. The reasons for rejection included things like negative or inappropriate pictures or comments, inconsistencies in their informadential or negative information about a previous employer. Reppler, a company that seeks to help people manage their online image, released the study in late September. Currently a free service, Reppler analyzes peoples online images across social networks including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Launched in April, Reppler will soon be expanding to include analysis sites like YouTube and Tumblr, founder Vlad Gorelik said. The application can be downloaded on Facebook or from its website, reppler.com. It works to evaluate peoples overall online image by analyzing things like the tone of the language used on their ing the most content on their page and the time of day during which they are most active this could he or she was most active during work hours. Reppler also analyzes the makeup of a persons social network connections to show how they interact or overlap. The applior security issues with each acor questionable content. In todays digital world, Gorelik said, managing your online image is just as important as having an impressive cover letter or a resume. Your online image is often a before you shake their hand, he said. Indeed, the study showed that 47 percent of recruiters looked at applicants social networking sites before actually speaking with them. Twenty-seven percent did so after having an initial conver sation with the applicants, and 4 percent did so only before making a job offer. Heather White, interim director of the UF Career Resource Center, said the CRC works to educate students to be aware of what theyre posting. She suggested that students Google themselves and go through their pictures and comments to make sure everything is appropriate for a potential employer to see. friends only, you still need to be careful, she said. However, its not just about controlling negative messages. Students presences on social mesaid. LinkedIn can be a powerful networking tool that acts like an online resume, she said. A Facebook page can be similarly helpful if students update things like their work experience, community involvement and leadership positions. In fact, 68 percent of respondents to Repplers survey said they had hired a candidate because of positive things they saw on social networking sites. You need to always make sure that you put your best foot for ward, Gorelik said. And these days, thats by managing your online image.Social media a factor for job recruiters MAGGIE POWERSAlligator Contributing WriterEach sign looked the same. Big, black, bold letters held by students and faculty reading one of the following: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, ally, asexual or pansexual. Although they looked simple, these signs represented the complexity of coming out. To celebrate National Coming Out Day, UFs Pride Student Union and LGBT Affairs set up information tables and a rainbow balloon arch on the Plaza of the Americas Tuesday afternoon. The representatives encour aged students to ask questions and be photographed under the rainbow arch while holding a sign denoting their sexual identities. Lauren Hannahs, director of LGBT Affairs at UF, said some institutions host weekand month-long celebrations. National Coming Out Day began in 1988, Hannahs said. Its all about raising visibility, spreading the word and trysupportive campus climate, Hannahs said. Bridget Siegel, 19, the exter nal vice president of PSU, said coming out is a continuous process with multiple phases. Siegel, a religious studies sophomore, said she hopes one day people of the LGBT comwho they are instead of for their sexual orientation. She said she still thinks National Coming Out Day is something to celebrate until that period of acceptance comes. Pride History Week will last from Oct. 17 through Oct. 22, said 18-year-old Andrew Brennick, the assistant director of the weeks events. Each day will feature skits about different gender expressions from history and a guest speaker on the history of transgenders, he said. The week will conclude with a gay pride gathering downtown. People do not have to be a part of PSU to participate in the weeks festivities.

Todays question: Has anyone ever hacked into your Facebook or Twitter account?Swing and a MissStudent Government had chance to be fairWay to go, UF Student Government. You blew it. This was your chance to prove that you were not an incompetent, corrupt and useless governing body. You had the opportunity to show that there is some shred of internal validity within your organization. And then you go and do something like this. How can the UF Supreme Court rule, according to Tuesdays article, that there was not enough harm done to merit an invalidation of the SG election and a subsequent re-vote? Not enough harm done? Did you forget, SG, that the students control you and not the other way around? Did you forget that you are funded with their money? It doesnt matter that the results might have been unaffected or unchanged by a proper vote. The bigger issue at hand here is that the election was botched and the voice of the students was not accurately represented. If you claim to represent the voice of UF students, then you might want to start by doing it legally and through fair electoral processes. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad probably thinks he represents the voice of the Iranian people, too, but we all know that is not entirely accurate. The UF Supreme Court, if it is going to call itself impartial, should treat a governing body that controls millions of student dollars with a little bit more scrutiny. How could Associate Justices Cecily Welsh and Tim Mason think a re-vote would do more harm than good? For one thing, it would be a chance to retest the voting sys(You could also actually follow your own code and test the system two days beforehand, but whos counting?) Its not like SG is trying to solve the national debt, so what harm is there in making the candidates campaign again? Poor, poor SG members. We wouldnt want you to have to do any more work than you have to. We wouldnt want you to have all those fraternities and sororities put up signs again, and we know how much of a pain walking around campus and handing out little cards can be. But we think the students would not mind a little more harassment this semester with the knowledge that an actual fair election process was taking place. do its job correctly? Thats just too much to ask. Or is it that youre afraid a re-vote would drive more people to vote against the Unite Party due to its unprofessional and irresponsible behavior during this entire ordeal? And students, if you do not care about this issue, you should. Its your money.Staying in school makes students unproductiveIs your college education really worth the money and debt? Maybe. Once upon a time, it might have been, but increasingly lower standards, government loans and a surplus of college graduate degree. Yes, technically employers scrutinize applicants based on whether an applicant went to a university or not, but did the education process create a more knowledgeable individual? As a student, do you really feel equipped to conquer insur mountable problems in the real world? Ever since elementary school, children are programmed to believe that the only way to ever achieve success in life is to earn a college degree. tion released a documentary on YouTube called College Conspiracy. According to the NIA, currently 70.1 percent of high school graduates will attend a college or university despite In the 1960s, less than half of all high school graduates attended college. Not obtaining a college degree was not a death sentence. At this time, Americans are the most educated individuals in our history, yet we are currently in the middle of an economic downturn. A poll conducted by Northeastern University and reported by The New York Times says that as of 2009, only 55.6 percent of college graduates younger than 25 work in a position that requires a degree while 22 percent of them work in a position that does not. The rest do not work at all. The documentary shows how the government and the est economic bubbles in history. The federal government has public loans, and it is killing the economy. The longer students stay in school without a job, the longer people are not being productive. nian, co-founder of Reddit.com, said, There are plenty of students from just avoiding a lot of the college stuff and just trying to create something. A surplus of college-educated, minimum-wage workers is not the only problem in education reform. Students need to be actively involved in settings that are spebetter in groups. Some have auditory learning styles while others learn through visuals. Sir Ken Robinson, a British author and TED speaker, has been championing the torch in the urgency of immediate education reform starting from the top down. He believes the public educational system is out of date, constructed by people in the Industrial Revolution whose perspectives are radically different from those of people today. Every country on Earth, at the moment, is reforming them is economic. How do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century? And the second is cultural. It is for our cultural identity, Robinson said during his Changing Paradigms speech. chaic in design. Peers, parents and bureaucrats are doing a disservice to students by discrediting their interests and talents as unimportant such as in the arts. Robinson continued, We are getting our children through education by anesthetizing them. We should be waking them to what is inside of themselves. Students should protest for improvements like Students Against Mandates. Government should take a backseat and let the free-market decide. Nicholas Butler is a journalism sophomore at UF.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 As Homer Simpson would say, Woo Hoo! Fox announced Friday that it has renewed contracts for its multibillion-dollar hit, The Simpsons, for two more seasons. This comes after weeks of head-butting negotiations between the network and its leading character voices. As a 22-year-old, I can say I dont remember a time when the Simpsons didnt exist. Now, in its 23rd season, Fox threatened to pull the plug on the longest on-air animated TV show. The reason? Negotiations between the network and the six actors who voice the worlds most recognizable animated characters were at a standoff over you guessed it money! On Oct. 4, 20th Century Fox Television released this statement: Twenty-three seasons in, The Simpsons is as creatively vibrant as ever and beloved by millions around the world. We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we el. We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement with the voice cast that allows The Simpsons to go on enter taining audiences with original episodes for many years to come. As you might imagine, the actors did not take the news well. According to The Daily Beast, the actors proposed to take a cut of around 30 percent in salary in exchange for a small chandising. That seems reasonable, right? The network makes billions of dollars every year from global syndication and merchandising of Simpsons merchandise. Wrong. The networks responded to the actors proposal by delivering a staggering ultimatum: If the cast didnt accept a 45-percent pay cut, the show would be canceled. According to The Daily Beast, the shows lead voices, which include Hank Azaria, Yeardley Smith, Nancy Cartwright, Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner and Harry Shearer, make $8 million a season. The pay cut would have reduced their salaries to $4 million. Is it wrong for these actors to want a piece of the pie? After all, they play a major role in the success of the show. If the network really needs to cut costs to keep the show running, surely there are other shows on the lineup with far fewer ratings. The terms of the new deal were not released. The Hollywood a 30-percent pay cut as opposed to the 45 percent pay cut the network was previously demanding. If the sites sources are correct, under the new deal the actors will be making about $6 million a season. Its unknown if the actors managed to get a Kaylanie Alvarez is a journalism senior at UF.Foxs stubbornness, corporate greed almost killed The SimpsonsGuest columnKaylanie AlvarezSpeaking Out This is a response to Travis Hornsbys column from Monday called Why I am no longer liberal-minded. I would much rather spend my post-work hours doing something relaxing rather than writing a guest column, but I must do something about the rage headache your column has caused me. I realize theres little I can do about the dehumanizing nature of the study of economics, but I cannot allow you to continue to spread delusional conclusions about an economic system weve been watching crumble before our very eyes for the past two years. First, Id like to state that we have a couple of things in common. I am also an ex-Obama campaigner and a non-liberal. I also write and work actively against some of the Obama administrations policies but for reasons much different than your own. The tions that contributed to the economic crisis, for example, was an absolute disaster. Ironically the bailout was government welfare (at a much higher level than social welfare programs could ever hope to attain) for institutions that practice the economic ideology you so proudly uphold. You may not be wealthy, as a previous guest columnist suggested, but you are cer tainly of privilege. From a global perspective, being a white male born on American soil could very well be the most privileged combination of qualities a person can have. As an Ecuadorian-born female with brown skin tone, Id like to share with you some things your economic courses may not have allowed you to understand we, the poor, dont sit around waiting for our next government check. We work the hardest and longest out of the entire labor force while receiving the least economic reward. So please discontinue suggesting that poor people are to rise up against their condition because of incentives by the big, evil government. Although you try to paint yourself as average, your assertion that millionaires are no different from you except for a few zeros in their bank account already sets you apart from the majority of the population. If that assertion is correct, Im forced to assume you do not know what its like to live without health insurance or to watch your parents home be foreclosed. This is not the experience of millionaires, but it is certainly the current reality of millions of Americans around the country. If you decide to expand your horizons, I would strongly recommend you take a course on labor history so you could shed, or at least open, the tired notion of unions as monopolies or threats to economic growth. I would also recommend you educate yourself on the issues of wealth mobility and inheritance wealth and how these two factors impact the ability of minority populations to break away and rise up from centuries of inequality, disenfranchisement and racism. In fact, please educate yourself about minor ity issues in general to understand how we Most importantly, do not give up the social (human) perspective when you continue pursuing your economics major. I certainly hope you never arrive at a point in which you view human beings as nothing more than numbers on a chart. If Im not mistaken, that is the same mentality that has inspired thousands to descend upon Wall Street to demand economic justice.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 LOCAL MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterLocal law enforcement agencies follow the law when providing public records, but their policies differ in ways that can have an effect on residents watches and pocketbooks. The public records departments of the University Police Department, Gainesville Police Department and Alachua Florida state statutes, better known as the public records law. State law requires agencies to redact certain information from public records before providing them for requests such as Social Security numbers and drivers license numbers, said The time it takes for these agencies to complete records requests, however, varies depending on what a person asks for. For a copy of a lengthy homicide investigation report, for example, it may take more than a day or two for clerks to review the documents and redact any information that state statutes require be kept private. It really depends on the nature of the request and what utes for employees to print out the report, Fundenburg said. While GPD strives to complete requests as quickly as possible, its policy is that they may take up to 72 hours to complete, said Claudia Hendrix, records coordinator and manager of the GPD records division. Ninety-nine percent of the time, it doesnt take 72 hours or more to complete a request, she said. It becomes stressful for employees when someone walks present in court that day. The employees then feel the need to obtain those records immediately, despite a backlog of other requests. Their crisis could become your crisis, Hendrix said. There is that point in GPD where we can say it could take 72 hours. pleting records requests at UPD, but he said it depends on the request and that efforts are made to provide information as quickly as possible. Florida law permits agencies to charge for requests, and UPD, GPD and ASO have different policies for these fees. At ASO, people requesting case reports may have to pay some fees, although crash reports and arrest records are provided for free, Fundenburg said. GPD also has a 15-cent-per-page fee, but employees can generally charge at their discretion after a report passes the of $1 for all incident and accident reports. Public records requests may require similar fees through UPD, although it depends on the type and extent of the request, Barber said. Were not out here to make money on this, he said.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Basketball Media Day Is TodayStay tuned to alligatorSports.org and make sure to pick up a copy of Thursdays paper, as we will be bringing you coverage from the mens and womens basketball media days. Dee Finley Rumored To Be TransferringJeff Barlis of the Gainesville Sun is reporting that linebacker Dee Finley has chosen to transfer from Florida. A UF spokesman withheld comment Tuesday. BACK TO RECEIVE MORE CARRIES THIS WEEK. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff WriterFor as long as he has been at Florida, running back Mike Gillislee has sat behind Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey. It appears those days are over. With the Gators offense struggling to put up points in back-to-back losses to Alabama and LSU, and with Demps banged up and Rainey struggling to break free against top He ran for a team-high 56 yards on just nine carries against the Tigers last week, and Gillislee brought a facet to the Florida offense that neither Demps nor Rainey could. Coach Will Muschamp said Monday he ran with toughsentiment Tuesday. Getting hit is part of his game, Weis said. Theres times where if he has a choice to make somebody miss or dance or try to run through somebody, hes a guy that will try and run them over. Even before quarterback John Brantley went down with an injured right ankle, the Gators offense hummed when it was able to pound the ball on the ground. With Brantley out, the unit has been stagnant. While all three backs are similar, the hope is that Gillislee can step in and spark a rushing resurrection, starting with running the ball between the tackles something Demps and Rainey werent able to accomplish. Were all the same kind of running back, Gillislee said. But by me being bigger, I (give the defense a differ ent look) by me going through the middle. Gillislee hits the hole quickly instead of dancing around and looking for space. He likes to run in (between the tackles), offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said. Most running backs cant get to the outside fast enough. But he likes it in there; he likes contact. Gillislee said learning the pass-protection schemes in Well, that, and the presence of Demps and Rainey. Still, Rainey isnt upset at the prospect of losing some Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida running back Mike Gillislee could receive more carries this week against No. 24 Auburn after rushing for a team-high 56 yards on nine carries against No. 1 LSU last week. Gillislee stepping into larger role TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterFlorida has a quarterback competition on its hands this week. After freshman Jacoby Brissett started against No. 1 LSU last week while fellow freshman Jeff Driskel was sidelined with an ankle injury, Driskel is back in practice and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said the ankle has been a non-factor. Weis said both have taken snaps in practice, although they werent split evenly. However, Weis said both would be ready when Florida travels to take on No. 24 Auburn because they each are getting plenty of reps in practice. With senior John Brantley still sidelined with an ankle injury of his own, Weis said Brissett and Driskel could both will be tailored for both. While the competition is open, Weis was impressed with what he saw from Brissett against LSU. Brissett completed 8 of 14 passes for 94 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, but Weis was most pleased Brissetts poise in a hostile environcareer. Theres a lot of good practice players that when it comes times to play in a game, they disappear, Weis said. He isnt one of them.Driskels ankle not an issueCan UF open up the offense?Tyler: Flor idas offense will be more complex this week. It cer tainly wont be getting any simpler. Whether Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel take snaps Saturday, offensive coordinator Charlie quarterback than he did the week before. And that will be the case each week until John Brantley returns. Seven days isnt a lot of time, certainly not enough for any season-changing revelations that turn Brissett or Driskel into polished passers. Sorry. However, both quarterbacks can grow more in those seven days than an experienced player like Brantley can. That doesnt mean either will be better than Brantley they can just improve more, because they have more room to develop. Think about any skill you have tried to pick up. The most weeks. And being a capable Southeastern Conference quarterback is an acquired skill. Greg: There is no reason to think Flor idas quarterbacks will be worse, but that doesnt mean the offense will expand. Both have struggled to execute the limited portion of the game plan they have been entrusted with, and burdening them with more wont help.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterTo the Gators, brotherly love looks sweeter in orange and blue. Floridas Josh and Alex Izewski and Derek and Daniel Wehunt give a different twist to team unity, looking to use their sibling rivalries to propel Floridas cross country team to the top of the ranks. The Izewski brothers have quickly given their coach, Todd Morgan, a reason to smile. Josh, the teams lone senior, leads by ginning his last year with success, freshman Alex is just starting to well. To Morgan, building a championship-caliber team requires more than providing better times; its also about better leadership. At the start of the season, Mor gan called on both Josh and Derek, a junior, to act as mentors. Each having younger siblings, the two ence could have and are trying to share that with others. I can teach [Alex] from all the mistakes I made my freshman year so he doesnt make the same mistakes, Josh said about his younger brother. As his time at UF concludes, Josh wants to pass on his knowledge and wisdom to Alex. Although Derek and Daniel havent gotten off to a quick start like the Izewski brothers, they still exemplify the mentor-and-pupil aspect of the team. Morgans desire for experienced runners to take charge has made Josh and Derek the leaders while molding the younger ones, like Alex and Daniel, into more knowledgeable and well-rounded individuals. On Friday, the Gators will need the leaders and the younger runners to step up when they compete in the Wisconsin adidas Invitational, one of the biggest meets of the season with 39 mens teams and 42 womens teams participating. In a meet that large, Morgan said some of the younger runners have a tendency to get lost in the crowd. But he hopes the Gators will show some brotherly love to help each other if the situation arises this weekend. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15Alligator File PhotoFlorida senior Josh Izewski, and younger brother Alex Izewski, are one of two sets of brothers helping motivate the mens team. Brothers rivalry pushing Gators KELLY PRICEAlligator WriterCord Sandberg is a 16-year-old multitasking machine. As a freshman, he practiced with the Bradenton Manatee High varsity squad, led his junior varsity team to an undefeated season offs. As a sophomore, he led Manatee to a 13-1 season that ended Thomas Aquinas. That season, he threw for 2,855 yards and 25 touchdowns while rushing for 579 yards and 10 touchdowns. Sandberg also said he hit .399 on the baseball team in the Its fair to say the 6-foot-2, 190-pound dual-threat quarterback and two-sport prospect has a few avenues to pursue. Now a junior, Sandberg and the Hurricanes are 3-2, with close losses against No. 10 Olney (Md.) Prep. He has collected offers from Auburn, Clemson, Cincinnati and Iowa State, while also talking to coaches and drawing inter est from Alabama, FSU, Stanford, Texas, Tennessee and Florida. Right now, my options are open as far as football or baseball, Sandberg said. During football season, Im going 100 per cent and loving it. But when it ends, its baseball season and I give (that) everything Ive got. Whatever happens next year senior year is probably what Ill end up doing. Im not sure yet right now, though. After his freshman season, Sandberg had already been around the recruiting circuit with trips to Auburn, Clemson and Florida. ary. This summer, Sandberg was invited to Gainesville for a oneday offensive and defensive line camp to put his arm on display, an experience he enjoyed. I talked to (Florida offensive coordinator Charlie) Weis, and he seemed like a pretty bright guy as far as offense and developing quarterbacks, Sandberg said. If they were interested in me consider for sure. Sandberg also has some family ties to Florida. His father, UFs baseball team in 1979. I am open to wherever as of right now, Sandberg said. But Personally, I want to go to a place where the coaches and atmosphere feel right. So whatever happens, happens.Top 2013 QB recruit weighing optionsBrantley vs. Tebow, jump passes and redshirt possibilitiesWelcome back to another edition of The Mailbag. Floridas football team may be struggling, but were still on top of our game and ready to answer another batch of questions, so lets see what youve got. @AlligatorArmy: On a scale of one to Trey Burton, how would you rate the Gators ratio of perceived talent to actual talent? Judging by the wording of this question, you must be of the belief that Burton is on the high end of that actual-talent scale. Bur ton doesnt perceive the Honey Badger-led is basically a wash. Were trying to come up with a knowledgeable answer, but all we Inception taunting us. Is what we perceive actually reality? @PhilipGaryTalks: Will we see a lineup with Andre Debose, Jeff Demps, Chris RainNah, no chance of seeing that lineup. While it is arguably the most talented lineup of position players Florida can trot out to the wont use a three-running back set, and while Rainey is the teams leading receiver, he is not a true receiver. @zachmoller: Who will have more wins as starter the rest of the season: Tim Tebow or John Brantley? Cam Newton. He has all the tools, and teams. As far as our two other favorite Gators quarterbacks, were going with Timmy. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as he will play the rest of the season. It looks like his elbow is going to fall off every time he throws, but Tebow has done last couple of years. We know the Broncos suck, but they get to play the Chiefs twice. And the Chiefs really suck. Right, Char lie? @JLBOB: Does anyone actually care that LSU scored on a jump pass? I see a lot of peoDo fans care? Probably not. Were sure they were all beside themselves when the had the audacity to pull that play on Florida the play the Gators made famous against the Tigers. But after that, were sure fans cared more trick play with the game well in hand. Florida players, however, werent too thrilled by the play. Defensive lineman Jaye Howard said he ing game coordinator Billy Gonzales, who left Florida on bad terms in 2009, laughing. @JLBOB: Since it is still technically possible for both freshman quarterbacks to be redshirted, should one of them sit, and which one? If you want to go that route (which we dont suggest), you obviously keep Driskel out. Today, both players are eligible for a medical redshirt not a traditional one. To qualify, a player must (a) prove he sufand (c) stay out of every game after week six. Saturday will be the seventh week. Brissett wont be a candidate. He doesnt of), and he wont be suffering any without playing in a game. And if he plays in a game, it will be after week six, obviously. Driskel could, on the other hand, qualify because he has only played in three games. Muschamp is telling reporters (shocking, we know), then maybe they keep him out for the rest of the season. But you dont go out of your way to get Driskel a redshirt. If Brantley is out, Driskel is Floridas best quarterback. Thats why he was No. 2 on the depth chart.THE MAILBA G I can teach him from all the mistakes I made my freshman year, so he doesnt make the same mistakes.Josh IzewskiUF runner UF R ecruiting

Teammates said Brissett commanded the huddle and kept his composure in Death Valley, something Weis noticed about the quarterback when he saw Brissett play basketball at Palm Beach Gar dens Dwyer High. While Weis admitted taking a conservative approach to the LSU game, he said Brissetts perfor mance was not the reason Florida lost the game. Patchan seeing more time: Junior left tackle prominent role in the Gators offensive line. games, Patchan has played extensively against Alabama and LSU. when he got the nod over junior Xavier Nixon, who has been plagued by penalties and poor play this season. Sophomore guard Kyle Koehne believes Nixon was benched due to a lack of performance. However, Weis said Patchan earned the chance to start. Matt is a physical player, Weis said. When he knows what hes doing and can really turn it loose, he can be a dominant, physical presence, and I think thats what hes shown. Patchan had a standout performance against the Tigers, Weis said. Discipline problems: During Saturdays loss to LSU, Florida became the most penalized team in the nation. The Gators now have 55 for 425 yards in six games. Koehne attributed the penalties to a lack of discipline, adding that coaches are cracking down on it in practice to avoid similar mental lapses in games, too. Youll probably be pulled, Koehne said. Theyre unacceptable right now for how many weve been getting per game. Theyre not being tolerated. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org. Driskels numbers have been pretty poor through four games: 7 of 16, 73 yards and two inter ceptions. At times he looked nervous, scared and unsure of himself. Brissett was serviceable against LSU, but if you take down, he was just 7 of 13 with 29 yards and two interceptions. And Florida only let him or chestrate about 56 percent of the offensive plays not exactly a ringing endorsement of his grasp of the offense. Give these guys some time to digest what theyre working with before giving them more to swallow. Tyler: Brissett taking only half the offensive snaps has little to do with his grasp of the offense, or lack thereof. Weis didnt replace him with another quarterback; he replaced him with a special package to kickstart the running game. Trey Burton and Chris Rainey took snaps out of the shotgun because the Gators could not establish the run with Brissett in the game. LSU dared Brissett to handled his freshman with kid gloves. Weis wont do that Saturday because Auburn will crowd the line. Florida became more complex in the second half at LSU, and Brissett looked OK. He wasnt good, obviously, than most expected. That deep It was a good throw. And although Brissett made plenty of mistakes, he never panicked. Greg: Being calm is one thing, being prepared to run Weis offense is something else entirely. Floridas inability to run the ball when Brissett was in the game cant be brushed over. To some extent, those struggles fall on him. The experience he got playing against LSU is supposed to be a big factor in his development, but he only completed one pass in the second half. Tyrann Mathieu was the last player to catch one of his throws. Its not like he made improvements as the game went along and can carry that over to next week. Id envision a jump in perfor mance if he had been nervous and jittery Saturday, because hed probably calm down and play better in his second start. But the mental part was already there. So why should I expect his skills to improve enough to change the offense in only seven days? Tyler: THEIR INABILITY TO RUN THE BALL HAD LITTLE TO DO WITH HIS GRASP OF THE OFFENSE. It was about Weis play calling. Why dont you understand that? Also, his skills werent really in question. His problems were mental as are the problems of every freshman. His skills arent going to improve in seven days, but his comfort level will. Nobody is asking him to morph into Peyton Manning. The offense was so stripped down last weekend; of course, it can be more complex. Florida wont look like it did it wont be as simple as it was last weekend. Greg: The struggles on the ground may have been related to play-calling, but the play-calling was related to Brissett. He wasnt ready to execute more than he did last weekend, or he would have done it. And by admitting that he needs to increase his comfort level, youre accepting that he wasnt comfortable with what they did against LSU. And the stats back you up on that one. Giving him more to learn is a good way to take a step back, because he would have a whole new set of variables, he would need time to get comfortable with. Thats why Floridas attack will look pretty much the same against Auburn: so Brissett can master the offense one step at a time.

RALL Y, from page 14Patchan earning more time at LT NOTEBOOK, from page 14Weis said Gillislee a team playertouches, saying his teammate brings a lot to the table. Gillislee said he was never frustrated by a lack of carries in the past, calling himself a team player, and he added that not much will change knowing hes in line for a larger workload this week against Auburn. My team always brought me up; they never put me down, he said. I was just always waiting my turn. the offense this week was that Gillislees performance shows what can happen when you dont open your mouth and just work hard. Most of these guys have illusions of grandeur and think theyre the best guy on the team, Weis said. Hes a lesson for a lot of these guys that are backups to see what can happen if you prepare to be ready and they call your number and you produce. Thats going to get him on In two years and some change in Gainesville, Gillislee has just 123 carries more than 100 less rushes than what Demps and Rainey have received. But his numbers are almost as impressive: 6.8 yards per rush, 10 touchdowns and a career-long rush of 60 yards, which came ear lier this year against Kentucky. Every time I run the ball, I never know when Im going to get it again, he said, so I try to run it as hard as I can while Ive got it. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@ alligator.org.
