CARTER LYLES Alligator Contributing Writer Charming the crowd with jokes and pranks, National Basketball Association icon Shaquille ONeal spoke in front of about 3,200 people at the OConnell Center on Tuesday evening. ONeal has played for teams like the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat, and his TV appearances and endorsements have made him a household name. When it comes to thinking about making it, ONeal said, I havent made it yet. And thats what keeps me going. Accent Speakers Bureau paid ONeal $70,000 to speak. Taking the stage shortly after 8 p.m., ONeal sat in one of two low-slung mocha lounge chairs on stage while moderator Laura McKeeman asked him about life on the road, his relationship with Kobe Bryant and his upcoming career move to TNT commentator. But the Shaq Attack is also hard at work off the court. From his past work as an undercover cop investigating Internet crimes involvPh.D. at Barry University, ONeal is, as Accent Chairman Corey Portnoy put it in his introduction, a Shaq of all trades. Shaq was truly an entertainer, Portnoy said. But, more importantly, [he] is a good teacher and a phenomenal leader to hear from about all of his accomplishments both in the professional world and the athletic world.

CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Library West will be open for 24 hours Sunday through Thursday in the spring if The bill would transfer $59,174 from Student Government reserve funds to George A. Smathers Libraries to extend Library Wests hours. The Senate unanimously gave primary approval at Tuesday nights meeting. Budget committee chairwoman and Unite Party spokeswoman Christina Bonarrigo said she wasnt surprised when the Senate approved the funds transfer. I know that so many students face the said. The spring hours extension is a pilot project test that SG is funding. She said if the test proves to be a success, Library West will keep and fund the extended hours. The SG funds would cover the costs of two library assistants, a student assistant and a security guard. Bonarrigo said the library would cover the utilities costs. The Starbucks by the main entrance will keep the same hours as the library, she said. Library West is open from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday.

Sponsored by the College of Fine Arts and UF Homecoming, the concert will take place Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. on Flavet Field. About 150 performers are scheduled for the event, including the Mens Glee Club, Pazeni Sauti Africa Choir, Opera Theater, Gator Jazz Band, UF School of Theatre and Dance and Sunshine Steelers steel-drum ensemble. Students from Sidney Lanier School, for Gainesville students with intellectual disabilities, will also perform, led by UF alumnus Don DeVito. The UF symphony orchestra, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, will headline the event and remain on-stage in between other performances, said Lauren Kingry, 23, associate conductor for the symphony orchestra. We dont normally do events like this, Kingry said. Were normally segregated in our discipline. We Are The Boys From Old Florida, Orange and Blue and the Alma Mater have been reorchestrated for the concert. The symphony orchestra will perform original compositions by 23-year-old UF senior Evan Kassof, UF alumna Stella Sung and music professor Paul Basler. Were really excited to be involved, said Kingry, also a second-year graduate student in ochestral conducting. We dont normally do Gator tunes.

4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2011 ON CAMPUS DEVON ABELMANAlligator Contributing WriterStudents will have the opportunity Friday to guess just how many condoms are crammed into a jar. UFs chapter of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood will host its annual sexual health fair, Sex on the Lawn, on the North Lawn. The event will consist of carnival games, arts and crafts and condom races. There will also be a sex expert at the event to answer questions. We live in kind of a sex-negative society, and in Vox, we encourage people to talk about [sex] and have some sort of dialogue about their sexual experiences and who they are sexually, said Rosemary Daniels, 20, a psychology senior and president of Vox. Pride Student Union is co-sponsor ing the event. In addition, the event will offer free HIV testing at the Reitz Union. It is a really easy process that involves an oral swab, Daniels said. People always think that its painful or involves blood. She said by offering the test for free, Vox encourages students to talk about their status and create an open dialogue about getting tested for sexuallytransmitted diseases and infections. When it comes to sexual safety, we cant talk about it enough because it is obviously still an epidemic in America to have unsafe sex, said Devon Faria, 19, an anthropology sophomore and internal vice president of Pride Student Union. The event will start at 10 a.m. and will run until 4 p.m. Free pizza, cupcakes and drinks will be provided.Condom races, jar to return for annual sexual health fair VISITORS CAN GIVE MONEY AS GIFTS TO HELP FUND TRIPS. JUSTIN JONESAlligator Contributing WriterWedding bells signal the beginning of a new life together. For a recent UF graduate, Jay Swedlaw, 29, was inspired to create a travel business after attending a wedding with a friend about a year ago. He was inspired by the weddings gift registry. Swedlaws website, myvojo.com, is meant to help people who want to travel. Instead of receiving gifts for a birthday or graduation, users register online and allow their friends and family to contribute to their trips. It seemed like something people could get behind, he said. Swedlaw used $7,500 to start the website, which he spent the last nine months developing. We also did lots of research to see if there was anything like this out there, he said. We took a risk. He graduated from UF in 2004 with a degree in psychology. The cost of using the site correlates with the cost of the trip. Myvojo.com charges 9 percent of the total amount of money a user receives for his or her trip. Not everyone thinks the site is a good use of money. Hannah Dwyer, a printmaking sophomore, said she could just have her family give her money directly instead. However, she said the website might be good for some people. I feel like that would really encourage traveling and seeing other cultures, she said. The site went live about three weeks ago. So far, it has had plenty of visitors but not many customers, Swedlaw said. We need to turn those site visitors into site users, he said. We were always brainstorming about the next million dollar idea, he said. Right now we have to have our humble beginnings, and hope that it moves up from there.Alum creates travel donation site It is a really easy process that involves an oral swab.Rosemary Danielspresident of Vox

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 You always hear about big business screwing the little guy. You hear about corporations preying on the poor and uninformed. The majority of us agree that this happens and are seldom shocked to see it come up again and again in the news. Its unfortunate, but we are resigned to the fact that the chips are stacked against us; that large corporations with their phalanxes of lawyers can do as they please with no consequences. This is what the Occupy Wall Street protests are about. This is what the banking reform bills are supposed to be about. This is one of the many reasons why the average person is disgusted with the state of the way things are in America today. While we all agree that big business is out to screw the little guy, we are nonetheless shocked when the hand of unfairness reaches out and personally smacks us in the face with a blatant abuse of power. Such was my shock when I recently saw that Chase had stolen $96 in fees from my Free Checking account. Stolen is the exact word for what Chase did to me. steal is as follows: To take (the property of another or others) without permission or right, especially secretly or by force: A pickpocket stole his watch; a bank stole from his account. The deceitful nature of what it did makes my blood boil. Back in 2009, I received a nice little postcard from Chase offering a $100 match if I opened a Chase account with $100 of my own money. A few weeks after receiving the card, I drove down to the bank and put $100 of my hard-earned cash into a Free Checking Minimum Balance of $100 account as advertised on the card. For years my money sat in the account, and I was content to let it stay there, enjoying the fact that I had a Chase account if I ever needed one. Every now and then, I added to it or wrote a check against it. It wasnt an account that I used, and I didnt monitor it. Why should I monitor it? The minimum balance was $100, and I had that more than covered. Fast forward to Oct. 22, 2011. line banking. When I signed on, I immediately noticed that I had three $12 service charges. How could this be?, I asked myself. I had this account for years and never did anything with it, and the balance always stayed the same. Why was I being charged now? What was going on? The hand of unfairness had taken a swipe at me, and I was just beginning to feel the sting. So I call Chase and the service representative tells me that all the free checking accounts were changed over to total checking because of some federal regulation. He used the phrase some federal regulation to describe the reason why my free checking account had turned into a money sucking succubus of an account. He then went on to explain the three ways that I could avoid the $12 service fee: 1) maintain a $1,500 balance, 2) have a direct deposit of at least $500 per month or 3) maintain $5,000 balance across a number of different accounts, loans or mortgages with Chase. I went from having a free checking cccount that was required to have a $100 balance to having a total checking account that required a minimum balance of $1,500. All without my approval or say and all because of some federal regulation that had apparently forced Chase to make this change. I was starting to smell something that had the stench of a scam. Have you ever heard the term bait and switch? Well if not, here is a form of it. After my protests, the service representative agreed to refund the three charges and we hang up. Nice guy. So now I immediately go back to my online statements and, upon further examination of the crime that Chase committed against me, I now see that the original three charges are just the tip of the iceberg. The charges began all the way back in March of this year. It has been steadily charging me $12 each and every month since March for a total of eight. I call back. Im angry. Ive been cheated. My pocket has been picked. I speak with a service representative who listens for a good while and then passes me on to a supervisor who informs me that Chase sent me a notice of the change. I ask where the notice was sent, and she does not tell me. I ask why the change wasnt emailed to me. She says Chase or a text. I ask why an email with a subject line with huge font explaining that I am now liable for a $12 service fee per month wasnt sent to me. Surprisingly, I didnt get an answer. I didnt get an answer because the answer isnt PC and wont show up in any of Chases cute commercials that it has been playing lately. In short, the answer is that it has designed its system so this happens. It did it on purpose. It was banking (excuse the pun) on charging its unknowing customers these fees. Chase does not gain by letting me know about the fees so it didnt make an effort to inform forever with its fees until I overdrafted, and then it would have charged me for that as well. The supervisor agreed to refund four out of the eight fees that I was charged. For the four fees that Chase wouldnt give back, which amounts to $48, it has created an outspoken critic that will tell the world forever of its crooked behavior. My mistake was that I trusted the original agreement that I had with Chase. My mistake was that I didnt check its every move month to month and monitor them for crooked behavior. I should have treated them like a parolee with an ankle bracelet. My mistake was one of trust. Essentially Chase has shown me that it cannot be trusted and my money is not safe there. It builds walls and vaults to keep the crooks out, but what happens when the crooks are actually inside the bank? Chase has shown me through its actions that it will defraud its clients. Chase stole $96 from me. It robbed me of this money through an elaborate scheme to draw me in with a teaser account and then switched it on me without my knowledge. It made the minimum required effort to inform me of the changes that were enacted and then sat back and began picking my pocket. The gulf between the account I signed up for ($100 minimum balance) and the account that it switched me into ($1,500 minimum balance with $12 per month service fee) is staggering. It is a crook. How many others have been taken by this criminal or ganization? How many more have been taken in similar schemes by organizations just like it? More importantly what can be done about it? How many of you were allowed to overdraft on your account more than once in a single day, allowing these crooks to tack on unbelievable fees? Why does the law allow Chase to commit these crimes against American citizens? Why are these corporations allowed to steal from us? They only remain in existence because our tax money bailed their over-leveraged corrupt asses out of the hole that they dug for themselves. I, for one, am outraged, and I dont believe that Im the only one. Max Scholder is an MBA student at UF.Banks crooked system designed to steal money from customersGuest columnMax ScholderSpeaking Out

senior, attended the event with a friend. He was a little inappropriate at times, but it was fun, Douyon said. I learned a lot about him, especially his doctoral degree, which surprised me. Finishing his appearance by spanking Portnoy and hosting an impromptu dance contest on stage, ONeal stayed the center of attention with his towering height and nonstop stream of jokes, jibes and mock-orders for security When it comes to being a professional athlete, I just want to give people a good time, ONeal said.

Tuesday that he is cautiously optimistic senior quarterback John Brantley will play Satur day against Georgia. Brantley was able to do more in practice than Weis expected, but his ability to make it through the week without aggravating his ankle injury is not guaranteed. Weis added that freshman Jacoby Brissett will start if Brantley is unable to play. Brissett ranks slightly ahead of freshman Jeff Driskel based on their performances in games and practices. Its a combination of Jacoby getting better and Jeff getting banged up, Weis said. I think that both of these young men have a very, very bright future. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. Its amazing: Hes actually been more productive in practice, offensively, by taking a whole less amount of shots, Donovan said. Last year, just his handling, passing decision-making made it very He was a turnover factory. Though it appears Florida will have no shortage of talented shooters this season, Prather isnt including himself in that arsenal right now. He went from averaging 29 points per game his senior year at Jackson (Tenn.) North Side High, to 1.2 points each outing at Florida. His .267 3-point shooting percentage was the lowest on the team of any player who attempted a shot behind the arc, and he also never made it to the free-throw line in 222 minutes on the court. But hes not concerned with either this year. Its kind of easy now since weve got so many other scorers, Prather said. I really dont have to do as much. Instead, Prather can focus on Floridas departed frontcourt. In a four-guard set, which Donovan has hinted at using, Prather said he could play any position from shooting guard to power forward. With one big man on the court, Prather would have the chance to provide a larger impact on the boards than he did bringing in 1.1 rebounds per game last season. These guys all come out of high school, and theyre able to score a lot, and they can do it based on their athleticism, Donovan said. But when you get to this level, understanding how youve got to impact the game its different. So far, Donovan said Prather is buying into his new role. Along with redshirt freshman Cody Larson, he is taking the fewest amount of shots during practice but is still and moving the ball on offense. bringing something to the team neither he nor his teammates saw from him last season. When asked what changes he has seen in Prather, junior guard dence. Hes not forcing anything. Its not like hes scoring a lot of points, but hes taking the right shots.

Its no coincidence that during that same span, Florida has sur rendered 96 points and dropped three straight games. We need to get turnovers back, defensive tackle Jaye Howard said. We havent had a turnover since probably the Kentucky game. We have to get that back going to be successful again and give our offense a chance. Its just swagger. When you get turnovers, you create turnovers and your defense plays better. We have to get back to that; I havent seen it since Kentucky. After going more than 13 quarters without a takeaway (and turning the ball over six times in the last month), Florida is 109th in the nation in turnover margin at minus-7. Only two BCS conference teams, Florida State and Iowa State, both at minus-8, boast a lower differential this season. Howard knows the only cure for Floridas defense is turnovers, which it will need to create this weekend to avoid a .500 record. While the defense left its swagger in Kentucky, the ofjust before halftime against Alabama. When John Brantley went down with an ankle injury, coach the team. It has shown the last two-plus games. As star-crossed as Brantleys career at Florida has been, this offense was only going as far as he could take it this season. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson said it best during fall camp: The difference between the John Brantley of this season and the John Brantley of last season is [are] higher than they have been in the past just leadership and taking control of the team. But with Brantley out, and Florida cautiously optimistic about his availability against Georgia, the offense is still lookseason.

CARTER LYLES Alligator Contributing Writer Charming the crowd with jokes and pranks, National Basketball Association icon Shaquille ONeal spoke in front of about 3,200 people at the OConnell Center on Tuesday evening. ONeal has played for teams like the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat, and his TV appearances and endorsements have made him a household name. When it comes to thinking about making it, ONeal said, I havent made it yet. And thats what keeps me going. Accent Speakers Bureau paid ONeal $70,000 to speak. Taking the stage shortly after 8 p.m., ONeal sat in one of two low-slung mocha lounge chairs on stage while moderator Laura McKeeman asked him about life on the road, his relationship with Kobe Bryant and his upcoming career move to TNT commentator. But the Shaq Attack is also hard at work off the court. From his past work as an undercover cop investigating Internet crimes involvPh.D. at Barry University, ONeal is, as Accent Chairman Corey Portnoy put it in his introduction, a Shaq of all trades. Shaq was truly an entertainer, Portnoy said.

CLARE LENNON Alligator Writer Library West will be open for 24 hours Sunday through Thursday in the spring if The bill would transfer $59,174 from Student Government reserve funds to George A. Smathers Libraries to extend Library Wests hours. The Senate unanimously gave primary approval at Tuesday nights meeting. Budget committee chairwoman and Unite Party spokeswoman Christina Bonarrigo said she wasnt surprised when the Senate approved the funds transfer. I know that so many students face the said. The spring hours extension is a pilot project test that SG is funding. She said if the test proves to be a success, Library West will keep and fund the extended hours. The SG funds would cover the costs of two library assistants, a student assistant and a security guard. Bonarrigo said the library would cover the utilities costs. The Starbucks by the main entrance will keep the same hours as the library, she said.

Students from Sidney Lanier School, for Gainesville students with intellectual disabilities, will also perform, led by UF alumnus Don DeVito. The UF symphony orchestra, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, will headline the event and remain on-stage in between other performances, said Lauren Kingry, 23, associate conductor for the symphony orchestra. We dont normally do events like this, Kingry said. Were normally segregated in our discipline.

UFs chapter of Vox: Voices for Planned Parenthood will host its annual sexual health fair, Sex on the Lawn, on the North Lawn. The event will consist of carnival games, arts and crafts and condom races. There will also be a sex expert at the event to answer questions. We live in kind of a sex-negative society, and in Vox, we encourage people to talk about [sex] and have some sort of dialogue about their sexual experiences and who they are sexually, said Rosemary Daniels, 20, a psychology senior and president of Vox. Pride Student Union is co-sponsor ing the event. In addition, the event will offer free HIV testing at the Reitz Union. It is a really easy process that involves an oral swab, Daniels said. People always think that its painful or involves blood. She said by offering the test for free, Vox encourages students to talk about their status and create an open dialogue about getting tested for sexuallytransmitted diseases and infections. When it comes to sexual safety, we cant talk about it enough because it is obviously still an epidemic in America to have unsafe sex, said Devon Faria, 19, an anthropology sophomore and internal vice president of Pride Student Union. The event will start at 10 a.m. and will run until 4 p.m. Free pizza, cupcakes and drinks will be provided.Condom races, jar to return for annual sexual health fair VISITORS CAN GIVE MONEY AS GIFTS TO HELP FUND TRIPS. JUSTIN JONESAlligator Contributing WriterWedding bells signal the beginning of a new life together. For a recent UF graduate, Jay Swedlaw, 29, was inspired to create a travel business after attending a wedding with a friend about a year ago. He was inspired by the weddings gift registry. Swedlaws website, myvojo.com, is meant to help people who want to travel. Instead of receiving gifts for a birthday or graduation, users register online and allow their friends and family to contribute to their trips. It seemed like something people could get behind, he said. Swedlaw used $7,500 to start the website, which he spent the last nine months developing. We also did lots of research to see if there was anything like this out there, he said. We took a risk. He graduated from UF in 2004 with a degree in psychology. The cost of using the site correlates with the cost of the trip. Myvojo.com charges 9 percent of the total amount of money a user receives for his or her trip. Not everyone thinks the site is a good use of money. Hannah Dwyer, a printmaking sophomore, said she could just have her family give her money directly instead. However, she said the website might be good for some people. I feel like that would really encourage traveling and seeing other cultures, she said. The site went live about three weeks ago. So far, it has had plenty of visitors but not many customers, Swedlaw said. We need to turn those site visitors into site users, he said. We were always brainstorming about the next million dollar idea, he said. Right now we have to have our humble beginnings, and hope that it moves up from there.Alum creates travel donation site It is a really easy process that involves an oral swab.Rosemary Danielspresident of Vox

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 You always hear about big business screwing the little guy. You hear about corporations preying on the poor and uninformed. The majority of us agree that this happens and are seldom shocked to see it come up again and again in the news. Its unfortunate, but we are resigned to the fact that the chips are stacked against us; that large corporations with their phalanxes of lawyers can do as they please with no consequences. This is what the Occupy Wall Street protests are about. This is what the banking reform bills are supposed to be about. This is one of the many reasons why the average person is disgusted with the state of the way things are in America today. While we all agree that big business is out to screw the little guy, we are nonetheless shocked when the hand of unfairness reaches out and personally smacks us in the face with a blatant abuse of power. Such was my shock when I recently saw that Chase had stolen $96 in fees from my Free Checking account. Stolen is the exact word for what Chase did to me. steal is as follows: To take (the property of another or others) without permission or right, especially secretly or by force: A pickpocket stole his watch; a bank stole from his account. The deceitful nature of what it did makes my blood boil. Back in 2009, I received a nice little postcard from Chase offering a $100 match if I opened a Chase account with $100 of my own money. A few weeks after receiving the card, I drove down to the bank and put $100 of my hard-earned cash into a Free Checking Minimum Balance of $100 account as advertised on the card. For years my money sat in the account, and I was content to let it stay there, enjoying the fact that I had a Chase account if I ever needed one. Every now and then, I added to it or wrote a check against it. It wasnt an account that I used, and I didnt monitor it. Why should I monitor it? The minimum balance was $100, and I had that more than covered. Fast forward to Oct. 22, 2011. line banking. When I signed on, I immediately noticed that I had three $12 service charges. How could this be?, I asked myself. I had this account for years and never did anything with it, and the balance always stayed the same. Why was I being charged now? What was going on? The hand of unfairness had taken a swipe at me, and I was just beginning to feel the sting. So I call Chase and the service representative tells me that all the free checking accounts were changed over to total checking because of some federal regulation. He used the phrase some federal regulation to describe the reason why my free checking account had turned into a money sucking succubus of an account. He then went on to explain the three ways that I could avoid the $12 service fee: 1) maintain a $1,500 balance, 2) have a direct deposit of at least $500 per month or 3) maintain $5,000 balance across a number of different accounts, loans or mortgages with Chase. I went from having a free checking cccount that was required to have a $100 balance to having a total checking account that required a minimum balance of $1,500. All without my approval or say and all because of some federal regulation that had apparently forced Chase to make this change. I was starting to smell something that had the stench of a scam. Have you ever heard the term bait and switch? Well if not, here is a form of it. After my protests, the service representative agreed to refund the three charges and we hang up. Nice guy. So now I immediately go back to my online statements and, upon further examination of the crime that Chase committed against me, I now see that the original three charges are just the tip of the iceberg. The charges began all the way back in March of this year. It has been steadily charging me $12 each and every month since March for a total of eight. I call back. Im angry. Ive been cheated. My pocket has been picked. I speak with a service representative who listens for a good while and then passes me on to a supervisor who informs me that Chase sent me a notice of the change. I ask where the notice was sent, and she does not tell me. I ask why the change wasnt emailed to me. She says Chase or a text. I ask why an email with a subject line with huge font explaining that I am now liable for a $12 service fee per month wasnt sent to me. Surprisingly, I didnt get an answer. I didnt get an answer because the answer isnt PC and wont show up in any of Chases cute commercials that it has been playing lately. In short, the answer is that it has designed its system so this happens. It did it on purpose. It was banking (excuse the pun) on charging its unknowing customers these fees. Chase does not gain by letting me know about the fees so it didnt make an effort to inform forever with its fees until I overdrafted, and then it would have charged me for that as well. The supervisor agreed to refund four out of the eight fees that I was charged. For the four fees that Chase wouldnt give back, which amounts to $48, it has created an outspoken critic that will tell the world forever of its crooked behavior. My mistake was that I trusted the original agreement that I had with Chase. My mistake was that I didnt check its every move month to month and monitor them for crooked behavior. I should have treated them like a parolee with an ankle bracelet. My mistake was one of trust. Essentially Chase has shown me that it cannot be trusted and my money is not safe there. It builds walls and vaults to keep the crooks out, but what happens when the crooks are actually inside the bank? Chase has shown me through its actions that it will defraud its clients. Chase stole $96 from me. It robbed me of this money through an elaborate scheme to draw me in with a teaser account and then switched it on me without my knowledge. It made the minimum required effort to inform me of the changes that were enacted and then sat back and began picking my pocket. The gulf between the account I signed up for ($100 minimum balance) and the account that it switched me into ($1,500 minimum balance with $12 per month service fee) is staggering. It is a crook. How many others have been taken by this criminal or ganization? How many more have been taken in similar schemes by organizations just like it? More importantly what can be done about it? How many of you were allowed to overdraft on your account more than once in a single day, allowing these crooks to tack on unbelievable fees? Why does the law allow Chase to commit these crimes against American citizens? Why are these corporations allowed to steal from us? They only remain in existence because our tax money bailed their over-leveraged corrupt asses out of the hole that they dug for themselves. I, for one, am outraged, and I dont believe that Im the only one. Max Scholder is an MBA student at UF.Banks crooked system designed to steal money from customersGuest columnMax ScholderSpeaking Out

Tuesday that he is cautiously optimistic senior quarterback John Brantley will play Satur day against Georgia. Brantley was able to do more in practice than Weis expected, but his ability to make it through the week without aggravating his ankle injury is not guaranteed. Weis added that freshman Jacoby Brissett will start if Brantley is unable to play. Brissett ranks slightly ahead of freshman Jeff Driskel based on their performances in games and practices. Its a combination of Jacoby getting better and Jeff getting banged up, Weis said. I think that both of these young men have a very, very bright future. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org. Its amazing: Hes actually been more productive in practice, offensively, by taking a whole less amount of shots, Donovan said. Last year, just his handling, passing decision-making made it very He was a turnover factory. Though it appears Florida will have no shortage of talented shooters this season, Prather isnt including himself in that arsenal right now. He went from averaging 29 points per game his senior year at Jackson (Tenn.) North Side High, to 1.2 points each outing at Florida. His .267 3-point shooting per centage was the lowest on the team of any player who attempted a shot behind the arc, and he also never made it to the free-throw line in 222 minutes on the court. But hes not concerned with either this year. Its kind of easy now since weve got so many other scorers, Prather said. I really dont have to do as much. Instead, Prather can focus on Floridas departed frontcourt. In a four-guard set, which Donovan has hinted at using, Prather said he could play any position from shooting guard to power forward. With one big man on the court, Prather would have the chance to provide a larger impact on the boards than he did bringing in 1.1 rebounds per game last season. These guys all come out of high school, and theyre able to score a lot, and they can do it based on their athleticism, Donovan said. But when you get to this level, understanding how youve got to impact the game its different. So far, Donovan said Prather is buying into his new role. Along with redshirt freshman Cody Lar son, he is taking the fewest amount of shots during practice but is still and moving the ball on offense. bringing something to the team neither he nor his teammates saw from him last season. When asked what changes he has seen in Prather, junior guard dence. Hes not forcing anything. Its not like hes scoring a lot of points, but hes taking the right shots.

Its no coincidence that during that same span, Florida has sur rendered 96 points and dropped three straight games. We need to get turnovers back, defensive tackle Jaye Howard said. We havent had a turnover since probably the Kentucky game. We have to get that back going to be successful again and give our offense a chance. Its just swagger. When you get turnovers, you create turnovers and your defense plays better. We have to get back to that; I havent seen it since Kentucky. After going more than 13 quarters without a takeaway (and turning the ball over six times in the last month), Florida is 109th in the nation in turnover margin at minus-7. Only two BCS conference teams, Florida State and Iowa State, both at minus-8, boast a lower differential this season. Howard knows the only cure for Floridas defense is turnovers, which it will need to create this weekend to avoid a .500 record. While the defense left its swagger in Kentucky, the ofjust before halftime against Alabama. When John Brantley went down with an ankle injury, coach the team. It has shown the last two-plus games. As star-crossed as Brantleys career at Florida has been, this offense was only going as far as he could take it this season. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson said it best during fall camp: The difference between the John Brantley of this season and the John Brantley of last season is [are] higher than they have been in the past just leadership and taking control of the team. But with Brantley out, and Florida cautiously optimistic about his availability against Georgia, the offense is still lookseason.
