Matt Benson / Alligator EMILY MORROW Alligator Writer At 4:45 Monday afternoon, Anastasia Ulanowiczs childrens literature class was discussing Little House on the Prairie in Turlington Hall Room 2350. At 4:46 p.m., a loud alarm made Ulanowicz jump. A chemical spill in the basement of Turlington caused the entire building and the adjoining restaurants to be evacuated. The building was closed for about an hour while UF Environmental Health and Safety employees cleaned up the spill. Nader Abo Dya, 35, and Suvendu Biswas, 27, were combining chemical compounds in Room B115 when one of them roethyl Isocyanate, a liquid compound that is combustible and moisture-sensitive. The compounds uses range from chemotherapy treatment to the manufacturing of foams, paints and insulation materials, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can be harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. The two students handling the compound complained of burning eyes and irritated lungs. incident at 4:41 p.m. Turlington Hall evacuated after chemical spill CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Students may have a new Reitz Union without paying separate fees if the UF Board of Trustees approves a recent proposal. UFs Local Fee Committee recommended Wednesday that renovations and expansion of the Reitz Union be funded by Activity and Service student fees, leftover student fee money and outside funding. The Activity and Service Fee funds comprise the about $17 million Student Government budget, and funds student organizations and services such as RecSports, the Reitz Union and the student activities and involvement department. Student Body Treasurer T.J. Villamil said the committee, which he is a member of, raises student fees by 5 percent each year, including the Activity and Service Fee. That means Activity and Service Fees and Athletic and Health Fees will increase by a total of $1.51 per credit hour for next year, said interim Vice President of Student Affairs Dave Kratzer. Of that increase, $0.87 would go toward the Reitz Union renovation project. The committee also found leftover money from already-collected Activity and Service Fees, and it expects to receive state money and alumni donations, Villamil said. If approved by the board, the committee will use the money for the construction. Students voted against additional Reitz Union fees in a referendum on the spring 2010 Student Government elections ballot. Fees committee outlines plan for Reitz renovationsAROUND GAINESVILLE BENJAMIN S. BRASCH Alligator Contributing Writer The Occupy Wall Street movement has rallied to collect about $300,000 dollars and a storage unit full of donations for New York City protesters. Occupy Gainesville is living off of organic and local food. Protesters receive daily deliveries of food to their headquarters on Bo Diddley Community Plaza. It is mostly the community thats been helping us out, said Chris Sholtz, 34, a member of the movements media committee. She said the communitys support has made the occupation easier. [Occupying] isnt an inconvenience at all, Sholtz said. Harrys Seafood, Bar & Grille has been donating water and ice. Big Lous is in charge of donating pizza. The Hare Krishnas have donated vegan meals. Wards Supermarket takes care of the organic produce and gave Occupy Gainesville a line of credit. All donated meals are at least vegetarian, if not vegan. If meat is served, it is served off to the side and out of the way. Of the food served to the protesters, 80 percent is organic and locally grown, said Francis Bennett, 43, an active member of the organizations food Markets, restaurants donate supplies to Occupy protestersSEE FEES, PAGE 8 SEE OCCUPY, PAGE 8 SEE SPILL, PAGE 8 As a business owner and an individual, I am here to help in any way I can, whether it is by donating power strips, having arts shows or hosting fundraisers.owner of 1982

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 STATE MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterAfter almost 10 years of struggle, the prescription drug database Florida State Sen. Mike Fasano has worked for went live Monday. The ElectronicFlorida Online Reporting of Controlled Substances Evaluation program, known as E-FORCSE, allows physicians and phar macists to access the prescription drug histories of tions for highly addictive drugs like OxyContin. Its a long time coming and its something that should have been done years ago, said Fasano, R-New Port Richey. Our hope is to save lives. Pill mills are health care facilities that prescribe and dispense controlled substances in ways that are either outside the bounds of standard medical practices or are illegal in the state, according to the programs website. These programs aim to identify doctor shoppers people who try to get prescriptions for a controlled substance from different health care practitioners. This practice is a felony in Florida, according to the website. Prescription drugs kill six Floridians per day drugs combined, also according to the website. Health care practitioners like pharmacists who dispense more addictive drugs such as Vicodin and Xanax must report the event in the database. Some exceptions do apply, such as when a per son provides one of these prescription drugs to a patient in a licensed hospitals emergency room, according to an E-FORCSE fact sheet. Physicians arent required to check the database before prescribing controlled substances. The implementation of the program was delayed by several factors, and it faced opposition from Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Pharmacists have been adding information about prescription drug dispensations for at least the last 45 days before the database was up, Fasano said. Laura Tipton, pharmacy manager at the UF Student Health Care Center, said phar macists have been submitting information to the database since Sept. 1. The on-campus pharmacy has not yet started using the database in making prescription decisions, though. Florida isnt the only state to have a prescripstates across the U.S. have similar operations in place.Database goes live to curb pill mills OFFICIALS EXPECT TICKETS TO SELL OUT BY MIDWEEK. MINA RADMANAlligator WriterStudent tickets are still available for the Florida-Georgia game. The Alligator reported Friday that 500 of the 5,500 student tickets were still available. As of noon Monday, tickets still were not sold out, said Mark Gajda, assistant athletics director for ticket operations. Gajda said fewer tickets were available Monday than were available Friday, but he declined to give an exact number. Gajda said he wasnt sure whether tickets had remained on sale for this long in recent years but said having sale is unusual. Florida-Georgia is considered one of the seasons most popular games and biggest rivalries. Tickets usually sell out within a few hours. Were attributing it to people not traveling to away football games anymore as they have in previous years, Gajda said. The sluggish economy and relatively high gas prices may also be to blame for the slow sale, Gajda said. The game will be in Jacksonville at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 and will be broadcast live on CBS. Tickets cost $40 and can be bought on gatorzone.com. Tickets should sell out by midweek, Gajda said. Students who have purchased tickets for the game will be able to collect them next week. Further details will be emailed to students after the sale ends.Student ticket sales still down for Florida-GeorgiaFasano
4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2011 SUSTAINABILITY MAGGIE POWERS Alligator Contributing Writer The Gator Nation will have a solar-powered car to add to its alternative energy collection, thanks to Solar Gators, a new club at UF. Created this semester by materials science and engineering sophomore Jason Rosen, 19, and mechanical engineering freshman Ben Rosenthal, 18, the club plans to design, build and race a solarpowered car. The Solar Gators will debut at the Formula Sun Grand Prix race in summer 2013, Rosen said. After that, Rosen said he hopes the team will progress to the American Solar Challenge, which races across the United States, and eventually race in the World Solar Challenge across the Australian Outback. Rosen and Rosenthal began racing solar-powered cars together at South Plantation High. Their high school team, the Solar Knights, raced around the Texas Motor Speedway in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, the team raced across the United States from Texas to Colorado. That experience prompted them to start a team at UF. I found my passion for alternative energy and the green movement and wanted to bring that to other people, Rosen said. He said collegiate teams have access to more resources than high school teams. Solar Gators members are in the process of reaching out to corporations for funding, Rosenthal said. Rosen said Solar Gators is aiming to raise about $150,000 in preparation for the race. The group has $250 so far. The club has about 30 members, Rosen said, and is looking to expand. UF students of all majors are encouraged to join. There are still opportunities for those who are not in engineering to get involved, Rosenthal said. Rosen said the team should be composed of students from multiple majors and backgrounds because building a solarpowered car is an interdisciplinary task. The team is currently focusing on the design and marketing phases of the project. After the logistical tasks are completed, building will begin, he said.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5 Aundre Larrow / Alligator Staff Tshitshi Kalala, a 37-year-old Congo native and sustainable development practice graduate student, speaks to about 15 students at Operation Congo STOP!: An Interactive Awareness Forum. BRIANNA KOLOTAAlligator Contributing WriterRamen noodles, frozen pizza and canned foods are staples in a college students diet, and these foods have one thing in common: high amounts of sodium. According to a study conducted by the International Food Information Council Foundation, most collegeaged individuals are not concerned with how much sodium they consume. The results of the study, released last month, state that only 22 percent of 18to 24-year-olds are somewhat concerned about personal sodium intake. Dietary sodium has received a lot of attention due to its possible effect on blood pressure and the frequency of hypertension in the U.S. population, according to the foundations October newsletter. In one day, a healthy per son should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium, which is the equivalent of about one teaspoon of salt. An American adult consumes about 3,400 milligrams of sodium every day, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. New incidences of high blood pressure among colincreasing, said Janis Mena, a registered dietitian at the UF Student Health Care Center. Making meals at home is sodium intake. Nobody needs to eat out every day, she said. Even having your own turkey sandwich is better than eating fast-food meals. If a student chooses to eat convenient processed food, he or she can still limit sodium intake. I call it the dilution factor, she said. Add fresh chicken or a head of broccoli to a frozen meal, and make two servings out of one. This method can cut sodium levels in half. In addition, eating more fruits and vegetables and usfood are good ways to limit sodium intake. Katie Riden, 18, a psychology freshman, said students buy convenience foods because they are easy to cook and can be stored for a long time. We just want food, and we want it now, Riden said. We are too busy studying and doing other things to cook.Study shows that young adults eat too much salt THE EVENT WAS PART OF BREAKING THE SILENCE: CONGO WEEK. AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing Writer UFs Model United Nations and Human.I.T.Y. hosted a simulation of the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday night to brainstorm solutions to the war in the Congo. The event was held as part of Breaking the Silence: Congo Week, which is held Oct. 16 to 22. Human.I.T.Y. president Roberta Roberts, 21, a public relations senior, spoke about corruption in Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. She also spoke about the recent deployment of special U.S. troops to Africa in search of Joseph Kony, leader of the Lords Resistance Army. This is going on right now as we speak; this is why we as a body must act now, Roberts said. UFs Model United Nations Vice President Samantha White, a 20-year-old criminology and political science junior, and Model U.N. director of external affairs Rachel De Leon, a 20-year-old materials science and engineering junior, had everyone sit in a horseshoe as Human Rights Council members to come up with possible solutions. tice graduate student Tshitshi Kalala, 37, relocated to the United States from Bukavu, Congo, to continue his education.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 Vote to name UF most vegan-friendlyEnergized from a powerhouse internship during the summer of 2010 at the largest animal rights organization in the world, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), I had this crazy idea that I could change the world one plate at a time. So in July 2010, I began working on changing the way the sixth-largest univer sity in the nation ate every Monday by embarking on a revolutionary Meatless Monday campaign. My phone bills were enormous those endorsements from organizations like the Humane Society and the Earth Day Network. I didnt get much sleep as I worked to collect almost 2,500 petition signatures from Gators who also thought we should revisit the idea of what we eat on Mondays. And in November 2010, only four months after I began galvanizing support from all of you at the largest land-grant university in the Southeast, UFs Gator Dining Services agreed it wanted to help change the world one meatless plate at a time. Sort of. I was both ecstatic and shocked when I heard UFs food services agreed to discuss my proposal to have a vegetarian menu in its two on-campus dining halls, Gator Cor ner Dining Center and Broward Dining Hall, on Mondays. Gator Dining Services sustainability coordinator met with me UF Meatless Monday posters and placards to be placed at both dining halls to alert hungry Gators to UFs new commitment to healthy, sustainable and ethical dining. That was almost a year ago, and thats where we are now. Now its time to judge. nual most-vegan-friendly college poll ends today. Its up to all of us how we should vote. Before you head to peta2.com to vote, consider this: Its up to all of us, not just the vegan and vegetarian Gators, but its up to all of us how we should reward our university. As the organizer of the Mondays camdining staff is wonderful. I know most of them personally, and theyre all genuinely fantastic people. And so this is nothing personal, but we can do better. As Gators, we have to decide: Do we reward UF with a vote as the most veganfriendly college for creating an extremely extensive vegetarian and vegan dining guide for all restaurants on campus? Or do we vote for one of its competitors because UFs sluggish movement toward a truly Meatless Monday, which has been publicly endorsed by both GatorWell and UFs OfDo we vote for UF as the most veganfriendly college in the nation for maintaining at least one vegan station at both dining halls at lunch and dinner, or do we vote for one of its competitors because UF refuses to listen to the nearly 2,500 of you who last year publicly called for a Meatless Monday? The decision is up to you. For me, I will be voting in favor of UF and Gator Dining Services. The work being done at UF, while extremely slow, is undoubtedly meaningful. At one of the nations largest schools, UF has the unique potential to set the course for the rest of the nation by offering a truly Meatless Monday in its two dining halls. But my vote will be used as more of a call to action. My vote will be used to show UF how much more can be done to ensure we all have the ethical and sustainable dining we deserve. It was the late Steve Jobs who said, The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. Lets be crazy, Gators. Lets help UF change the world. Vote today by 5 p.m. at peta2.com. Jared Misner Campaign organizer for Meat-Free Mondays at UF Letter to the EditorOf the more than one million people living with HIV in the U.S., one in As students, we need to educate our selves and our friends about the disease. People must understand that they are at risk. Florida ranks third in the nation for the greatest number of people infected with HIV. According to the Florida Department of Health, Alachua County has about 1,000 known cases, 16 percent of which are between the ages of 20 to 29 and 18 percent of which are people over 50 yes, contrary to what young people like to think, our parents and grandparents are still having sex. You cannot contract the virus from a handshake, sneeze or kiss. Nor can you get it if your bottom brushes against the toilet seat. But you can get it from sharing needles or having unprotected sex. As students, we think of ourselves as responsible adults. But we use our education as a shield to defend our behavior Dont let education fool you. Members of our UF community are also members of the HIV community. And they should not be stigmatized when many who call themselves responsible engage in risky behavior all the time. Does education help? Yes, people know [about the virus], but there are underlying issues, said Teresa White, Minority AIDS Coordinator at the Alachua County Department of Health. You dont have to be promiscuous. They think, Just this once, and then, when you add alcohol or drugs or too much trust, now we have the situation we have. And if you have or have had another sexually transmitted disease, you are at an even higher risk. HIV does not discriminate. Heterosexuals account for 31 percent of new infections, and women account for 27 percent. Though certain minorities have higher prevalence rates, the virus infects every ethnic group and race. If you are having oral, anal or vaginal sex with multiple people, you are at risk, White said. Its about adding sexual health to your list of personal values, she said. The stigmas associated with condoms and getting tested should not interfere with caring for your body. tial testing, not to mention an assortment of condoms, lubricants and dental dams. There is also free testing every third Thursday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. at BODYTECH Tattooing and Piercing on University Avenue downtown. Sexuality is a sensitive subject, but do not let fear of embarrassment stop you from protecting your health. Testing should be a regular part of your sexual health screening, White said. Somebody who asks you to get tested is a good person. People get offended. They shouldnt. White has seen an increase in the number of students getting tested because they realize they are at risk. Until people can realize that, theyll be in denial, she said. Two decades ago, an HIV diagnosis was a death sentence, but now it is seen as a chronic disease that is certainly manageable with antiretroviral drugs. The sooner you get tested, the sooner you can receive medication and do your part to prevent transmission. You want to be truly responsible? Get educated. Speak up. Use a condom.

HEALTH MICHAEL R. EDMONDS JR.Alligator Contributing WriterWhen Dr. Scott A. Rivkees joins the UF and Shands family, he wont do it alone. Multiple National Institutes of Health grants, continuous funding from NIH institutes and international recognition as a pediatric expert are among the assets that Rivkees will bring with him. In January, Rivkees will replace Dr. Richard Bucciarelli as the head of the UF College of Medicine pediatrics department and as the physician leader at Shands Hospital for Children. Rivkees is a member of the Yale University School of Medicine staff and sees patients at a private practice. He will take more of a leadership role with UF and Shands. One part Im very excited about is being able to apply academic growth and development and to grow the research base more broadly than I do now, he said. Rivkees graduated from Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He also held a faculty position at Harvard Medical School while receiving his postdoctoral training there and at Massachusetts General docrinology. Perhaps best known for his 2009 discovery of an adverse effect caused by a popular medication for Graves disease, Rivkees focuses mostly on researching the effects of medications on the mother and fetus during pregnancy. Rivkees is also the editor-in-chief of the International Jour nal of Pediatric Endocrinology. Rivkees noted that medicine is constantly changing and has global impacts. In many places, medication is met with dismay, he said. I was extraordinarily impressed by the leadership of UF and their commitment to make medicine grow.Renowned physician to head Shands Hospital for Children One part Im very excited about is being able to apply academic growth and development and to grow the research base more broadly than I do now.Dr. Scott A.

MARIA GALINDOAlligator Contributing WriterThroughout the day, students at about 1,800 schools across the country have pledged to remain silent for the 2011 Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity. Silent Solidarity is a day we set aside to remain silent in honor of those who were silenced because of abortion, UF Pro-Life Alliance Secretary Joshua Brewer said. Students will wear red duct tape across their mouths with the word life on it or red armbands as part of the daylong, nationwide protest, which is organized by Stand True Ministries and Priests for Life. The UF Pro-Life Alliance will hold a demonstration today on the Plaza of the Americas at 1 p.m. where members will raise awareness about the 50 million children who have been aborted in the U.S., Brewer said.

halftime woes. Some games and Im guilty of it I let fatigue take over, senior guard Deana Allen said. To help address the problem, coach Amanda Butler hired new strength and conditioning coordinator Rich Jacobs in the offseason. Since arriving in July, Jacobs has impressed his players, prompting Jones to call this offseason the most focused of her Florida career. Hes taken us to a much different level, sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds said. Hes gotten us much stronger and faster and mentally tougher. Weve done some things we never expected we could have done last summer. summer training, conducting a variety of workouts in the facility. Activities in The Swamp included a snake drill that had the players ascend the steps by running between each row and an exercise Bonds referred to as Gator Mountains. the stadium while carrying a teammate. Youre dying and you have a teammate in your ear saying, Dont drop me. Lets do it. You got it, Jones said. So, builder. Bonds, who carried Jones, said Jacobs tried to match the players based on size, but not everyone was so lucky with their pairing. A laughing Bonds recounted how freshman guard Carlie Needles, who is 5-foot-6, had to deal with the long legs of 6-foot-1 senior forward Ndidi Madu. Going into that, we were like, Youre crazy. Theres no way, Jones said. But we found a way through and we pushed through it. Underperforming in the second half ultimately served as the death knell for Floridas NCAA Tournament aspirations last season. However, the Gators return 10 players who have those mistakes committed to memory and have fueled what Jones calls a sense of urgency. Were ready, she said. Last year, we were trying to sneak up on people, and this year we want people to be like, Hey, thats Florida, whos returning everyone. Were ready for that challenge. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15UF SOCCER JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator WriterScoring chances were easy to come by for the Gators last weekend. Goals, on the other hand, were not so simple. During a two-game weekend road trip through the Magnolia State in which the Gators defeated Ole Miss and fell to Mississippi State, Florida was dominant in every aspect of the game but one: In a 2-0 win Friday night, No. 11 Florida outshot Ole Miss 16-3. Havana Solaun scored a goal in each half, coach Becky Burleigh and should have converted more chances. The struggles were more evident Sunday against Mississippi the back of the net while taking 16 more shots. The Bulldogs, who scored in the opening minute, escaped with the win. After the early goal, the Bulldogs played conservatively and kept several players behind the ball. Burleigh said the Gators did fense, but they could not score. Burleigh attributed the inability to convert scoring chances to general execution and a lack of awareness around the net. In situations where the opposing keeper gives up a rebound that is controlled by the Florida offense, Burleigh would like to see her players take the time to make a pass to the side for an easy tap-in, rather than shooting as soon as they control the rebound. After last weekends struggles, focus this week in practice. Ultimately, the psychologiwhere you work on your mechanics to make it so you dont have to think when you are facing an opportunity, she said. Making the correct runs, playing good services and setting teammates up were some of the areas Burleigh mentioned as points of emphasis as the team prepares to take on Arkansas on Thursday night. man said players need to put themselves in the right mindset Added Burleigh: We need to be able to take care of teams no matter what the circumstances, no matter how many people they put behind the ball. Right now, we do that sometimes, but not all the time, and thats not good enough for us to be where we want to be.Burleigh Jaeckel has 188 kills in last 13 gamesvolleyball of her life. Filling a vital role as both a frontcourt attacker and a middle-back defender, Jaeckel has picked up 188 kills, 98 digs and hit .327 during the current 13-game stretch. She was also honored as AVCA National Player of the Week on Oct. 4. middle blocker Betsy Smith said. Everything she touches turns to gold. Jaeckel, who recorded her 1,000th career kill earlier this season, complements other frontcourt veterans like Kelly Murphy, Cassandra Anderson and Stephanie Ferrell. But according to Wise, Jaeckel has improved the most since ar riving at Florida. Im not sure weve ever had a player who is this good at paying attention to the details, Wise said. Wise has repeatedly credited Jaeckels improvements over the years to work ethic. She said Jaeckel didnt come in as the most gifted athlete, but her dedication to getting better has been contagious for young players. Shes always looking out for me and telling me what I need to do, freshman defensive specialist Madison Monserez said. Shes really nurturing for everyone, but at the same time, she lets us know we need to get down to business Monserez also credited Jaeckel with helping her adjust to the middle-back position and college life. Jaeckel has seen the same ending to every season a loss in the campaign, she is focused on not letting that happen again. I said I wanted to leave my senior year with no regrets, and at this point what weve accomplished is pretty awesome and pretty special, Jaeckel said. Weve left some things out here, but its nothing we cant improve on before the end of the season.

During Floridas media day, Donovan made it clear he wasnt expecting much offensively from Yeguete, him to be opportunistic with his chances. Unlike the productivity Florida loses on the glass, the Gators return their top two scorers in guards Kenny Boynton and Erving Walker. Junior Mike Rosario and freshman Bradley Beal are also lauded for their shooting ability. That is enough scoring, Donovan said. We dont need more scoring. What we need is those guys to also defend and rebound and do the little things. Casey and Will and Scottie and Cody, they can add depth and an element to our team that can be very, very helpful.

They say life is not fair. Saturday night in JordanHare Stadium was a prime example of why it isnt; just look at Florida freshman quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel. Neither signal-caller was put in a fair position against Auburn on the road. Neither one stood a chance of succeeding, so forgive them for their mediocre performances. The more reps and the more turns those young menll get, theyre going to be really good football players, coach Will Muschamp said. Im excited about both of them. We just need to continue to move forward. Thats the reality of it, but thats part of the game. With redshirt senior John Brantley sidelined with an ankle injury the last two games, Floridas coaches have handled the quarter back situation about as poorly as they could have. has been the same from the Gators coaches and players: Brissett and Driskel are splitting reps in practice not always evenly, but close enough. Muschamp declined to name a starter all week, and it wasnt until Friday, the day the team left for Auburn, that he announced Brissett would get the start. By not making an executive decision earlier in the week, Muschamp put Brissett and Driskel behind the eight-ball, and the numbers showed it. Brissett was 5-of-10 passing for 45 yards and an interception in the Driskel. We just werent moving the ball effectively enough, Muschamp said. We felt like we needed a change. The Gators made a change, but the results were largely the same. Driskel completed half his passes (9 of 18) for just 75 yards and no touchdowns as the offense continued to sputter. Both freshmen failed to get into a steady rhythm against the Southeastern Conferences worst passing defense (222 yards per game). They both struggled to move the ball, and they clearly werent on the same page as their receivers. On Floridas second play from scrimmage Brissett underthrew Deonte Thompson on a deep ball that was intercepted by TSharvan Bell while Frankie Hammond streaked down the left sideline with no defender in sight. Same with Driskel. He over threw tight end Jordan Reed on a an easy touchdown. He also slightly overthrew a fourth-down pass late in the game to Thompson, who had to leap for the ball as it went through his outstretched hands. The errant passes against Auburn were easy throws if the quar terbacks were given a chance to develop a rapport with the receivers. But neither Brissett nor Driskel has been given that chance. Backups rarely take reps with were elevated on the depth chart due to Brantleys injury, they were sharing reps. build a connection with receivers, learn their tendencies, learn how they break on routes and learn how long it takes them to get from point A to point B.
