And, like in 2010, the third loss was a low-scoring, ghastly slugfest devoid of big plays or excitement for UF. Of the games 27 drives, 17 went for four plays or fewer, as both teams struggled to establish any type of rhythm. The Florida offense could never get off the ground, gaining just 194 yards as a result of spotty quarterback play and an inconsistent running game in Saturdays 17-6 loss at No. 19 Auburn (5-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference).

MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterLast week, Patti Wyatt saved $5 at Coffee Culture through a Groupon pur chase. She said she purchases deals about once or twice a month through LivingSocial or Groupon indulging in expensive meals and spa ser vices that she might not otherwise be able to afford. Now, the 21-year-old exercise physiology senior will have another source for her online bargain hunting. The University Network, or TUN.com, added UF to its growing list of college campuses last week. The New-York-based website lists deals and student discounts for surrounding businesses. Started in 2010, TUN is present on about 200 campuses across the United States and works with about 5,500 businesses. Unlike companies such as Groupon or LivingSocial, TUN.com does not act as a middleman, providing onetime-only deals, but rather as an advertiser listing long-running deals like happy-hour specials or student discounts. As of Sunday evening, TUN.com listed about 30 businesses with discounts in Gainesville. Places like Salty Dog Saloon, Mothers Pub and 101 Cantina list their weekly drink and food specials. Others like Alter Ego Fitness and Regal Cinemas list student prices for memberships or tickets. If a business does not offer any type of discount, TUN tries to negotiate with the owner to offer one through the website, spokeswoman Shannon Eberly said. Eberly said the website is First, by making students aware of discounts that they may not have known about previously, and second, by drawing in young customers to businesses. The main goal is to save students money, she said. We try to do that by connecting students with the businesses in their area.Site offers student deals Three others were also arrested Fridayjail.

Fridays question: Do you want tickets for the Florida-Georgia game? 78 TOTAL VOTES35% YES 65% NOClogging the SystemState mandatory minimums cram jailsIn our editorial Oct.10, we discussed the problems with federal mandatory minimum laws. Although these sentencing requirements are archaic, they pale in comparison to the state of Floridas mandatory minimum laws. If you have ever been injured while playing sports or in an automobile accident, your doctor might have prescribed you Lortab, a pain killer containing about 7.5 milligrams of oxycodine. The active ingredient in this pill is a controlled substance, meaning that it requires a prescription and could potentially land you in jail if caught using without one or if found with excess amounts of the drug. If caught with between eight and 27 Lortab tablets without a prescription, Florida law requires a mandatory minimum oxycodine. Four grams, or eight pills, of Lortab is all that is needed to get this sentence. Not four grams of oxycodine, which makes up only 0.06 grams of eight Lortab pills just four grams of Lortab tablets. The other 3.94 grams of the Lortab pills are made up of acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol. Luckily, we are keeping these violent criminals off the streets. If caught with between 28 and 55 pills, you could face Thats 30 years in prison for possession of pain killers. The state does not even have to prove that you intended to distribute these pills nor are defendants allowed to say that they were unaware of the illegality of the substance they possessed. Republican Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff has been trying to abolish mandatory minimums in Florida but has failed because politicians fear they will look weak on crime. Like federal drug laws, these laws in Florida have been overpopulating prisons with non-violent drug users. While the subject of drug use is still a matter of debate, surely no one can say that these laws are helping to end use of illegal substances. How can anyone say that putting someone in jail for 15 years for possessing otherwise legal pain killers is a rational sentence? What is the purpose of prison? We put nonviolent offenders in jail, surrounded by rapists and murderers, for years only to be released to commit violent crimes. The facts show that our current policies are weak on crime. This issue goes way beyond the billions of dollars that we spend every year to keep people incarcerated. This issue represents the despicable use of human beings for political gain.Why the impoverished stay impoverishedRecently, a lot of attention has been paid to rising income inequality in the U.S., especially among the top 1 percent of income earners. The reason for this fact is clear: Globalization and mass media have increased the returns to productivity, and the market has rewarded these people accordingly. Unfortunately, very little attention has been paid to what keeps the poor mired in poverty. Our own government has created a poverty trap for the bottom 40 percent of the population that will do more to keep this group poor than any Consider a family of 3 working to try to get ahead. They want to contribute to society but also want to make decisions works, they get a little above $30,000 a year in welfare cash grants and subsidies. Now lets say the father gets a minimum-wage job working full time. Depending on the position, he might be able to get about $15,000 a year. The total value of this familys income is now a little above $40,000 because the earned income-tax credit, section 8 housing voucher, Medicaid and food stamps fully kick in. These policies so far have created a somewhat positive incentive to work. Contrary to popular belief, however, very few heads of poor households actually make the minimum wage, which is largely earned by suburban kids working at Hollister. In fact, workers above age 24 make up 47 percent of those who earn the minimum wage, and only 23 percent of this group lives in poverty. A more realistic assumption is that the main income earner of a poor family would make between $10 and $20 an hour. Assuming a 40 hour work week for 52 weeks a year, the salary of someone making $10 an hour is $20,800 and at $20 an hour it is $41,600. Around that $20,000 income level, the familys income is maximized until it reaches about $40,000 a year in income because every additional dollar it earns is If the father starts off working in construction as a laborer and starts at $10 an hour, he might acquire new skills which cause his wage to rise. As his income goes up, he pays more in Social Security and Medicare taxes. He must then start paying some federal and state income tax, and the earned income-tax credit is phased out. As he rises to the job of foreman, perhaps making $20 an hour, he loses food stamps, medical coverage for his family through Medicaid and completely loses his housing assistance. In other words, his family is just as well off making $20,000 a year as they are making $40,000 a year because of government programs. Every extra dollar in income he makes from $20,000 to $40,000 is in effect taxed at 100 percent, far higher than the top 1 percent. Why try to work harder when it makes no difference to your economic well-being? Many people I speak with who support heavy expenditures on governmental poverty programs say that the poor arent smart enough to get ahead in our cut-throat capitalist system. are indeed intelligent and realize that there is zero incentive to do any more work after the $20,000 a year level until they are average-income earners. A family whose father works full time is just as well off with the mother staying at home as it is with the mother working full time as well, assuming they both make $10 an hour. If Occupy Wall Street has its way, more programs designed to redistribute wealth will be created, which will do more to stratify the impoverished condition of the bottom 40 percent of income earners than any greedy member of the top 1 percent ever could.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Americans rarely ever pay heed to international celebrations that honor the establishment of a foreign nation. On Oct. 9, the Peoples Republic of China celebrated the centennial of the 1911 Chinese Revolution. Aside the caimportant issues all Americans should be concerned with: (1) the upcoming Fifth Generation of leadership, (2) potential for eign and economic issues and (3) the future of China. For anyone privy to the accordance of the Chinese Constitution (or lack thereof), current General Secretary and President Hu Jintao must relinquish his positions in 2012 and 2013, respectively. In regards to term limitations, the Fifth Generation will succeed President Jintao and his premier, Wen Jiabao. At on Sunday with his predecessor, former General Secretary Jiang Zemin. President Zemin appeared to usurp rumors of his passing era of prosperity and to smooth crumbling relations between old Communist loyalists of President Zemin and younger technocrats of President Jintao. Currently, it is widely anticipated that First Secretary Xi Jinping will succeed President Jintao. If so, his reported frank and terse manner in dealing with domestic corruption, economic matters and foreign matters could highly shape the future of Sino-American relations for the next decade. In particular, potential disputes involving Taiwan, trade wars that could increase the prices of goods and services domestically here, U.S. naval supremacy in Southeast Asia, competitions in currency evaluations and investments in developing countries are simply a miniscule number of issues. While the legacy of President Zemin in China remains censored and reportedly mediocre, his economic contribution in both policy and philosophy is still being experienced. From the beginning of his reign in 1989 to his bowing out in 2002, the Peoples Republic of China has shifted from a primarily command-based Communist nation to a semi-authoritarian Communist nation that has seen private enterprise on both regional and state fronts. Average GDP growth under President Zemin hovered above 6 percent, spelling increase per capita income gains for millions. The joining of the World Trade Organizadent Clinton produced innumerable economic gains. In our current global atmosphere, Xi Jinping (if chosen as leader) will be unable to avoid several daunting issues: An increasing U.S. military presence challenges Chinese military capabilities in the region, trade wars with the U.S. over the Chinese currency or managing an ever increasing nation under the strain of an archaic Communist political system. We have very little to go upon from the intelligence gathered on Xi Jinping. Will he be a hardliner like some of his predecessors, increasing the strain of our relationship with China? Or will he be a moderate like President Jintao, part of a sweeping generation of consensusbuilding moderates? Perhaps all speculation must be based on some semblance of factual information gathered before us. If Xi Jinping does approach to domestic matters may open a window into our future. Growing environmental devastation and pollution endanger the lives of millions of Chinese citizens. While China managed the Great Recession with a well-crafted stimulus package that cushioned decreased GDP quarterly growth, investments will peak. Higher production costs in China have shifted some goods to its competitors, including Thailand, India and Singapore. The Hong Kong Trade Development Council estimated a potential jump from 5 to 9 percent in producing goods. Growing social unrest from crippling gaps in income wages between agricultural farmers and blue-white-collar workers will also test the Chinese governments ability to hold stability. There is much we have to look forward to, but any continuing of a peaceful coexistence must be factored with a pragmatic approach to China. Guillermo R. Pradieu is an English sophomore at UF.America must take pragmatic approach with China in futureGuest ColumnGuillermo PradieuSpeaking Out Alex Guilmartin made a good point in his Thursday column, lamenting the fact that the loud protests of the Occupy Wall Street movement are full of sound and fury yet signify nothing. The protesters have garnered a lot of attention while raising signs with vague proclamations like, Share the Wealth, We are the 99% or Jobs for all at Union Wages. (Im not even kidding about that one.) By now, you have probably seen the photo of a protester using the side of an NYPD patrol car to do his business. Guilmartin rightly explains that anger nancial mess. So what could the masses of dread-locked protesters do to cause real change? Or to put it more bluntly, what reforms would they call for if they actually First, the Occupy Wall Street protesters would call for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to propose a strict form of the Volcker Rule. The rule would limit the ability of federally insured banks to generate much of their revenue from proprietary trading (trading for their own account). The rule would also limit the big banks ability to bet on hedge-funds and private-equity funds. For years before ing borrowed money to make these bets, effectively multiplying their gains when they bet correctly and their losses when they bet wrong. Most economists agree that this practice, along with risky derivatives tradThe second thing the protesters would call for, if they knew what they actually wanted, would be restrictions on highfrequency trading (HFT). In this practice, traders make thousands of transactions each second, buying and selling back the same stock in a matter of milliseconds, for gains of fractions of a penny. Regulators began to scrutinize the practice following last summers infamous Industrial Average lost almost 1,000 points, only to make up the loss soon after. Experts are still in dispute as to whether HFT actuWhat is not in dispute is that HFT gives an unfair advantage to traders with the powerful and expensive computers needed to jump on tiny market opportunities so quickly. Two popular regulations are a speed limit on the number of trades one trader can make per second, and a minimum denomination, lets say a penny, for which a stock can be turned around. Unfortunately, none of the Wall Street protesters are raising signs that say, Prevent federally insured banks from making proprietary trades with our money, or Put speed limits on high frequency trading activities. So until the protesters change their tactics, I guess well just have to be content with the old defecate on a police car approach.

SAPHIRA LAZARREAlligator Contributing WriterSixth-grader Megan Lapcevic, 11, dipped her paint brush into a Styrofoam cup and coated her pumpkin in a deep magenta paint. Rubbing the excess paint off her hands, she called her creation pinkalicious. Ive made plenty of boring, or ange pumpkins, but this is the most fun one yet, Megan said. Pink Pumpkin Painting Party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday on the Cancer Genetics Research Complex lawn. Lindy Brounley, communications director for the Shands at UF cancer center, said she wanted the event to help educate the community about breast cancer while also offering a new perspective on the disease. We wanted this event to be fun and hands on, Brounley said. I think weve achieved that goal. Jerry Gramig, a 49-year-old Gainesville resident, agreed. He, along with his wife, Lavina, and their daughter, Ellie, 11, participated in the event early Saturday afternoon. Gramig lost his mother to cancer, and cancer has affected both sides of his family through the years. [The event is] like having a game with a purpose, Gramig said. Theres fun with learning here. People are getting the chance to show support for the cause and gaining some education without being overwhelmed. Brounley anticipated 100 par ticipants and had preordered 200 pumpkins. She said they bought additional pumpkins from Publix Super Markets and Lowes. About 530 people preregistered for the event, she said. About half were children. Thats the real focus here, Brounley said. While this is an event for families, we really hope to bring awareness to the mothers, the aunts, the grandmothers, even the dads who have brought the children out. Its all about education, prevention and awareness, really. UF&Shands, the cancer center and the Climb for Cancer Foundation offered information packets and brochures. Mary Lavan, a 76-year-old Gainesville resident, lost her daughter to breast cancer 20 years ago. This event really amazes me, she said, placing her hand over her heart.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 Charlie Weis calls them? They cant do much without an offensive line paving the way. Chris Rainey has 89 rushing yards in those three games, and he averaged more than 100 in Floridas while, has been out with an ankle injury, even though Gators coaches scoffed before the season about Demps ability to stay healthy. Defensively, things arent going much better. Will Muschamp has talked about overs the last three games. All things considered, the Gators lowed one true touchdown drive. Auburns other 10 points came off Florida muffed punts and Florida mond said after the game that the muffs by Chris Rainey and Robert Clark did not cost Florida the game. And he was right. The Gators of the game, the one right before Driskel was sacked from behind, the quarterback kept a play alive with until a receiver could get open. back recruit in the country last year. The ball hit Reed between the numbers. Then it hit the ground. Reed has struggled all season, as has every other receiver, save for Andre Debose, and he suffered an Debose has been pretty much ple of weeks, catching a bomb from the quarterback (whoever that may score. But even he has disappeared after those catches. That is not necessarily his fault. Its everyones fault. The offensive line, which cant hold blocks. The thing without the offensive line. The quarterbacks, who are simply too young for this. Driskel cost Florida the game. They both played OK not good, of course, but OK. At the same time, neither one helped Florida win the game. They were both just sort of there. Its not their fault, necessarily. Its everyones fault. And thats the scariest part. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. TYLER, from page 1Gators have worst offensive showing since The open weeks coming at a good time, coach Will Muschamp said. Weve got to do a lot. getting healthy. Sophomore linebacker Ronald Powell missed the game with injuries. Sophomore wide receiver Andre Debose and senior day. Even junior kicker Caleb Sturgis was sidelined by injury, just another parallel to last years Mississippi State loss. And thats to say nothing of senior has hindered the Gators in ways few would have predicted before the season. Florida has thrown for 242 yards in the 10 nal offensive play before halftime against Alabama. Brantley has upgraded from crutches mistic he could return against Georgia. Im hoping so, Muschamp said. Well see what happens. I dont know. His rehabs going very well. Saturdays loss illustrated just how desperately the Gators need him. Floridas offense had only 194 yards, its lowest total bama in the SEC Championship game. second consecutive start but completed just 5 of 10 passes for 45 yards before he was pulled at halftime. back, pumped to senior running back Chris Rainey on his right, hesitated and intercepted by TSharvan Bell. Brissetts son, was open if Brissett had thrown it a tion cost him. egated to mostly screens and dump offs, driving an offense that racked up a mere 104 yards in We needed to do something different from what we were doing, Muschamp said. Continue to do the same stuff, youre pointed with. We just werent moving the ball effectively enough. thing Muschamp said they would do at one point or another in the game. But the results were mostly the same. Driskel completed 9 of his 18 attempts remaining in the third quarter and the ball was running wide open down the seam. pitch from Rainey, Reed was streaking with sophomore Demetruce McNeal 4 yards behind in coverage. But Driskels pass landed well beyond portunity at the end zone was lost. It was wide open, Muschamp said. We need to hit that. Both UF quarterbacks completed 50 percent of their passes, but neither ally killed us in the game, but again didnt do enough to really help, Muschamp said. SEC, two games behind South Carolina and Georgia in the East division. While the Gators goals are not yet out the Bulldogs would almost certainly seal Floridas fate. body rested up, because weve got a long Bostic said. What happened, happened.

allowing Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter to make one of his few plays of the game. Trotter tossed up a jump ball in the end zone to DeAngelo Benton, who came down with the pass over cornerback Cody Riggs for the Tigers only points of game-winning points. Muschamp and other coaches insisted would not be tolerated after last weeks loss to LSU. We need to do a better job coaching, because, obviously, its not getting done and weve got to look at some other guys that can play, Muschamp said. That falls on my shoulders nobody elses. Florida had two false start penalties and two half, and set Auburn up for two scoring drives by virtue of penalty. Defensive tackles Jaye Howard and Leon Orr were called for a face mask and offsides third down, extending the Tigers drive. But Auburn kicker Cody Parkey bailed tempts from 42 and 45 yards. Florida remains the most penalized team in the nation with 61 for 465 yards. emphasize it and do a better job with it, Muschamp said. Thats all I can say. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator. org. Although Muschamp said last week that everyone except quarterback John Brantley and cornerback Jeremy Brown would be ready for the game, he said after the loss that Powell did not practice all week. Muschamp said he expects Powell, who has struggled to produce at times this season, to be ready for the Georgia game following the bye week. Senior William Green started in place of Powell, assisting on one tackle and notching two quarterback hurries. Demps was listed as a game-time decision after spraining his ankle on a kick return against Alabama. We didnt feel like he was full speed enough, Muschamp said. He practiced some this week. Not much. Starting left guard Dan Wenger was on crutches with his left foot in a protective boot after the game, and kicker Caleb Sturgis injured his leg in Wide receiver Andre Debose tweaked his ankle during and played sparingly the remainder of the game. Wide receiver issues: Musgarding his struggling wide receiver corps after the game. No receiver on the Gators roster averages two receptions per game, and the teams two leading receivers are Rainey (18 catches) and fullback Trey Burton (13 catches). Against Auburn, Floridas leading receiver had 40 yards. Thats the biggest issue right now, just consistent play at the position, Muschamp said. Were not getting enough consistent play at the position. Im not going to get into a bashing of one position. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org.

Florida hasnt forced a turnover since the second half against Kentucky on Sept. 24. Jenkins drops another interception in fourthPart of UFs problem the last three games has been that opponents have run the ball 135 times and passed it just 55. Florida has had trouble stopping the run and stripping the ball from carriers, but it has also struggled with a consistent pass rush and failed to capitalize on the few mistakes teams have made throwing the ball. It was the same story Saturday, as the Gators failed to force a fumble against the Tigers, recorded just one sack and were unable to come through on at least two interception opportunities. second half, Florida freshman cor nerback Marcus Roberson was in the vicinity of an errant Clint Moseley pass, but Roberson slipped and was unable to corral the ball from his back. Then in the fourth quarter, with Florida trailing 14-6, linebacker Jelani Jenkins jumped in front and dropped a sure interception that would have given the Gators to attempt to tie the game late. We havent created any turnovers, defensive tackle Jaye Howard said. Whenever we do create turnovers it looks good for the Gators. Were putting our offense been getting it, and we have to get back to playing our style of defense and causing havoc and just disrupting the quarterback. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org.
