HEAT AND DROUGHT CAUSED THE SHORTAGE. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterPeanut butter is a staple protein in biology sophomore Andy Mills diet. Mills, 20, loves it with apples, toasted bread or bagels, and, of course, as a main ingredient in his peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich. He eats it three times a week, he said. However, due to hot, dry summers in the South, fewer peanuts are being harvested this year, causing the price of peanut butter to rise. J.M. Smucker Co., which produces Jif peanut butter, announced a 30 percent wholesale price increase this month, according to a recent Associated Press article. Planter peanut butter, produced by Kraft Foods Co., raised its prices 40 percent on Oct. 31, according to the Associated Press. Although the price varies between brands, an average 8-ounce jar of peanut butter costs about $2.59 at Publix in Butler Plaza West. A 30 percent price increase on a $2.59 jar of peanut butter would be $3.37. Publix will adjust its prices depending on the cost increases, said Dwaine Stevens, Publix spokesman at the Jacksonville Division, which includes Gainesville stores. Publix has seen cost increases for peanut butter since July, and they will continue through the rest of the year, Stevens wrote in an email. Business sophomore Alexandra Danovitch, 19, already pays a little more for her all-natural peanut butter. Its slightly annoying especially because I only eat the natural kind, so its like an added dollar on top of that, she said. But there isnt much I can do about it. Mills said he would be willing to pay a little more for his peanut butter. It depends by how much it increases, he said. A couple of cents is no big deal, but if its a $3 jump, else to replace it. No matter the increase, biochemistry sophomore Yash Shah, 19, will still pay for smooth peanut butter. Shah, a vegetarian, gets his weekly protein by eating peanut butter with crackers and sometimes jelly. Even if the prices increase, Ill still buy peanut butter, he said. Peanut butter, which by law must be composed of at least 90 percent peanuts, is the leading use of peanuts produced in the U.S., according to the American Peanut Council, a trade association. U.S. farmers are projected to produce 1.8 million tons of peanuts this year, the smallest harvest since 2006 and down about 13 percent from last year, according to a recently released survey by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Peanuts grow in sandy soils from April to October. Florida grows about 6 percent of the peanuts in the United States. The 2010 peanut crop was excient rainfall. The heat resulted in toxin, a substance produced by fungus found in various crops, Stevens said. The 2010 peanut crop is characat least 30 years, he said. An estimated one-third of the crop is anticipated to be inedible.

Todays question: Do you like listening to music by Arab womens rights movement needs supportA longing for political liberty has fueled many of the recent uprisings in Arab and North African countries. First the efforts of protesters in Tunisia to oust President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali caused a massive chain reaction. Neighboring countries gazed at the willful power of their peers across the border and quickly developed their own anti-government demonstrations. Not long after, government opposition from other countries, including non-Ar ab countries, began to show their faces through similar protests. In particular, a resonating voice screamed across the world: If Tunisia can do it, so can we. Social media echoed this spirit via audio and video clips and live on our computers, televisions and cellphones. These anti-government demonstrations were, and still are, the major force behind groups of fervent citizens eager for political change change from the usual authoritarian leadership, change from the viciousness of genocide and torture and change from the absence of freedom and autonomy. for political change in their Islamic countries are Muslim women who wait for the day when their voices can be heard. In some ways, the issue of gender inequality transcends the been disrespected and stripped of basic human rights. Following in the footsteps of Tunisia, anti-government protests proceeded ardently in Yemen. The cries for change stemmed from President Ali Abdullah Salehs oppressive government regime. Known to be especially devious, Saleh welcomes violence as a means to achieve his goals and conYemeni women have been the silent sufferers of Salehs harsh government regime for three decades. For so long they have been subjugated to the authority of a cold-hearted man Recently, the women of Yemen reached a limit. After Salehs regime ravaged the homes of innocent families and killed them in the process, Yemeni women shuddered in fear for their own lives. And when Salehs forces attacked 60 women while killing their children, the Yemeni women could not stay quiet any longer. They collected their veils and burned them in protest of Salehs heinous actions. Standing together with power in their eyes, Yemeni women inciner ated the piece of cloth that held them back for so long. The Arab Spring has underscored the struggle for gender equality by inspiring women to take action into their own hands. The most commendable strength of the Arabic womens movement is that they remain undeterred by past history where social reform was a promise never kept. I recently heard a Saudi Arabian woman on the radio champion a strong belief: We are not looking for a revolution. We want evolution. The uprisings in Arab and North African countries have been met with some success, but the struggle for gender equality is continually marginalized. Islamic women are not looking for revolutionary action to be taken. They just want a voice. However, when acting alone, they face fatal reper cussions. This is a historic opportunity for the Western world to provide our support toward the womens rights movement. We have the power to assure that their movement succeeds. In the future, historians will judge us by the side of the fence we stood behind in the face of blatant gender discrimination. We must make the moral choice. It is time that we world. Akansha Mishra is a pre-law junior at UF. Her column appears on Fridays. In case you live under a rock, its Homecoming weekend here in Gainesville. Due to this important, historical event that happens once a year, classes, for the most part, have been canceled. If youre reading this while waiting for your Friday class, proceed to roll up the paper and hit yourself on the head. Feel better? But were not going to cancel our Friday tradition because theres gonna be a parade, a concert by a 90s band, a comedian whos famous for hosting The Soup and, oh yeah, a football game or something. Its time for our threeday-weekend-of-insanity edition of...Darts & Laurels As usual, we start off by throwing a maybe-if-you-spentless-time-developing-catch-phrases-you-could-read-upon-some-history DART to presidential candidate Herman Cain for claiming that China was trying to develop nuclear capability. Apparently Cain thinks its still the 1960s. hope-you-signed-a-prenup LAUREL to Kris Humphries for getting the heck away from those crazy Kardashian women while he still has some shred of dignity. If you havent noticed, Bruce Jenner (their stepfather) looks like hes slowly turning into a woman. For our second highlight of shame, we throw a whatgoes-around-comes-around DART William Adams. His daughter, Hillary Adams, recently posted a video from 2004 allegedly showing the judge lashing her with a belt, threatening to beat her into submission. people who come into his courtroom. As something that should make everyone feel a little more relieved, we give a crazy-how-quickly-the-marketresponded LAUREL to banks for deciding to cancel controversial debit card fees after customers threatened to move their accounts elsewhere. The 1 percent arent all that bad, are they? absolute stupidity and poor judgment. Thats why we toss a show-me-your-papers DART to the NYPD for locking a college student in jail for two days because she didnt have her ID on her. Samantha Zucker decided to take a stroll into Riverside Park after it had given her a warning for trespassing but because she failed to have her ID on her, he decided that jail time was an appropriate consequence. Finally, we give a good-taste-in-music LAUREL to Detroit Lions fans for petitioning to get rid of Nickelback from their Thanksgiving games halftime show. As one fan so aptly put it: Does anyone even like Nickelback? Have a fun and safe Homecoming weekend, and be sure Akansha Mishraletters@alligator.org

Letters to the Editor FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Educational inequity a major issueTravis Hornsbys column Monday highlights perhaps the most pressing issue facing America today the gross disparities in academic achievement between students of low and high socioeconomic backgrounds at all levels of education. Currently, the U.S. is experiencing an educational crisis, and implications are seen and heard everywhere. The economies of our state and country are desper ate to compete in this innovative, technology-driven market, yet our knowledge of math and science consistently rank at the bottom of the list of developed nations. SAT scores, which can be used to predict future economic success, have been steadily declining through the years. And when it comes to courses that are not subject to standardized testing, like social sciences, deteriorating or nearly nonexistent. As college students and the most recent products of the K-12 system, we all have our stories. Often, however, no story is more compelling than that of a student from a low-income and/or disadvantaged background. The larger picture that all these stories paint is disheartening and, quite frankly, unacceptable. Consider that the average math and reading skills of a black or Hispanic 12thgrader are equivalent to the average of a white eighth-grader. Or that only 8 per cent of kids from a low-income community will graduate from college. That in some neighborhoods, one is more likely to know someone who went to jail than someone who attended a four-year university. In a nation that prides itself as a place for equal opportunity, it is troubling and ironic to see that not everyone has access to a quality education. Educational inequity is perhaps the greatest social issue of our generation, yet so little attention is paid to it by our peers. If we are to solve this national injustice, in order to identify tangible solutions to these problems on both local and state levels. Starting with our community, how do we ensure that students of color and low-income backgrounds have the right tools and preparation to become a part of the Gator Nation? Is UF doing everything it can to enhance the experience of this group? Vicky Riquelme & Andrew Hecht Gators College Access Network Abortion affects more than one bodyIn Rosemary Daniels guest column, she stated her opinion that a womans right to have an abortion is unalienable. A woman having full rights of her own body sounds good if it is only her body she is affecting. When she has an abortion performed, she has just ended the life of another. The Declaration of Independence states that life is an unalienable right; It hardly mentions the taking of another humans life for convenience. Rachel Crow UF Student Politicians altering Occupy dialogueI was enraged by the article titled Occupy Gainesville, Occupy UF pair up for demonstration. Police brutality trumps reckless oil industry practices in the Occupy dialogue. police when peacefully protesting in Oakland, Calif., many feared it would change the Occupy dialogue. The article entitled Occupy Gainesville, Occupy UF pair up for demonstration is proof enough that the politicians have changed the dialogue by ordering militarized agencies to attack peaceful, unarmed protesters. The article that ran last week focused on the federal banking system, the economy and police brutality; Instead, the article should have focused on banking, the economy and the environment. For example, Bank of America is a powerful company that controls much of the economy and is heavily invested in environmentally unsustainable and devastating coal mining operations. The environment is the key issue that was overlooked by the article. BP is continuing to destroy wetlands. Shell is expanding drilling in the Ever glades and planning on destroying the Arctic. And the Keystone Tar Sands pipeline is going to drive animals to extinction. Meanwhile, public hearings are not being held, public comments are disappearing from ecologists locally and conservation biologists globally are not being heard. out all legal and political actions revolving these oil expansion projects. These oil companies are using regulatory capture to control our government. This should be the dialogue. Instead, the article last week focused on hiring thugs to brutalize protesters, which is a step away from hiring thugs to kill ecologists, like what is happening with the rainforest activists in Brazil. It was in bad taste that the article focused on police brutality but failed to mention the awarded war veteran Scott Olsen, whose ability to speak was literally taken away by the brain damage he received from being shot in the face when exercising his freedom of speech. This should enter into the dialogue, but police brutality ought not take center stage instead of the regulatory capture that has occurred in our government. In fact, police brutality is inevitable as we struggle to liberate ourselves from the 1 percent that would see the long-term sustainability of the human population jeopardized for its short-term, personal economic gains.

MIGUEL CHATELOINAlligator Contributing WriterTo sum up the challenges in getting a college education, Joe Johnson took the stage of the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom on Thursday night and busted into rhyme. First generation. Low income. At risk, said Johnson, UFs assistant director of the Office of Academic Support. The reality of this is some people get pissed at the fact youre here, and your brilliance gets dismissed. In spoken word style, Johnson encour aged about 80 people at the Educational Access Summit to brainstorm solutions and ideas to fix Floridas education system. Students did more than just take notes. They broke into groups and came up with recommendations to fix the education system on the spot. Groups presented their ideas on stage, suggesting teachers try to relate better to low-income students, create more high school mentor programs and improve college advising. The event was hosted by Gators College Access Network and sponsored by various student organizations and departments, including Student Government, Gators for Educational Equity and the Office of Academic Support. Andrew Hecht, president of Gators College Access Network, said the best recommendations made Thursday will be sent to various UF academic departments. Will we solve all of our problems here? Hecht said. Probably not, but the conversation has to start somewhere. Some people suggested lobbying against the FCAT and fixing problems with school funding. Some thought the event was a step in the right direction. I feel like these are the problems that we need to start going against, said Dino Medic, 18, a biology freshman who came from a low-income family. Everyone here is passionate about changing things. As the first in his family to attend college, Medic said the summit was worthwhile for him. Being aware and knowledgeable is what being here was all about, Medic said. 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Amanda Cohen / Alligator Students discuss improving Florida education at summitJohnson ON CAMPUS

EMILY MORROW and MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WritersRon Dupont stood before a lecture hall of journalism students last week and told them local newspapers are stronger than ever. In the back of his mind, he knew his community newspaper was struggling, but hed make it work. Week after week, hed scrimp and cut. But Dupont, owner, publisher and editor of The North Florida Her ald, did the math and knew there was nothing left. The numbers said 59 years of history were about to end. The numbers said his newspaper was bankrupt. After several lean years, local businesses had cut back the frequency and size of their ads as they lost business due to the sluggish economy. Dupont said he needed $120,000 to keep the paper running through December 2012. The day he realized there wasnt enough money to survive, he sat in his Kia minivan with his 6-yearold son, Tripp, and knew what was about to happen: Hed let his interns go. Hed sell his computers. Hed lose his house. He drove home to his wife and Dupont announced the papers closing Sunday in an email to prospective interns. On Monday, he wrote the papers obituary.

The High Springs Herald was sold to another family in the late s. That family ran the paper until Campus Communications, also the owner of the Alligator, purchased it in 1990. Dupont bought it in 2009 and renamed it The North Florida Herald. It had a print circulation of 33,000 and about 2,000 visitors to its website daily. The paper was ranked the Best Community Newspaper six years in a row by the Florida Press Association up to 2010. This year, it took third, tied with The Coastal Star and behind The Islander and Navarre Press. The paper was known to cover birthday parties and anniversaries with as much gusto as shootings and plane crashes. Theres nobody here now to Dupont started his journalism career in middle school. After earning a staff job at The Palm Beach Post, he interned at The New York Times and said he was offered a job, but he decided he wanted to go to college and get a degree. After two years at UF, he was offered a job as the editor of The High Springs Herald. He took it. In 1995, he left for a job at the Charlotte Sun Herald in Charlotte County, where he worked to pioneer the online newspaper industry newspaper websites. He was then hired by the St. Petersburg Times in 1998 to develop the papers website, but by 2003 he was ready to go back to his roots. Four months later, he returned as editor of the Herald. In 2009, he bought the paper, putting his house up as collateral. For Dupont, his time at The Her ald has been more than a job. Its been a community service.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 THEY HAVE TO WRITE 50,000 WORDS BY NOV. 31. JULIA GLUMAlligator Contributing WriterWhenever he has a second of spare time, sophomore Stephen Hanson leaves UF for Terrance County. All he has to do is open his laptop, and suddenly hes in the halls of its community high school, walking next to Jason, who is struggling with the backlash of being publicly homosexual in a conservative town. Plot twist: Terrance County is not real. Then again, neither is Jason. Hanson is just one of more than 200,000 people participating in National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. Participants attempt to write 50,000 words about the length of a novel within 30 days. The annual month of marathon writing started Tuesday and will last until Nov. 30. Gainesville had 181 active NaNoWriMo writers last year, many of whom were college students, said Christy Shorey, UF library assistant and co-municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo. During November, student writers voluntarily add writing a novel to their packed schedules. It can be tricky with time management, but its always a good break from the heavy academic stuff to be able to escape into the story that youre writing, said Shorey, who has reached the 50,000-word mark eight times. Hanson, a 19-year-old music composition sophomore, needs all the time he can get. He has replaced free time with writing time, he said. Whenever I have a second or a couple minutes between class or even during class if the subject isnt particularly engaging Ill whip out my laptop and just start typing, Hanson said. In order to make the 50,000-word quota, he must average 1,667 words per day. NaNoWriMo runs on the honor system. The sponsor organization, nal word count.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 17 ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator Contributing WriterIn the 1960s, women at UF had to wear dresses and skirts in public. They also had to be back in their dorms by 10 p.m. and could not be seen kissing men in public. If they failed to do any one of these things, they were issued an offense slip. Three offense slips and she was locked in her dorm for the weekend while men did what they wanted. In 1967, fed up with what she called male supremacy, Judith Brown, a 27-yearold UF graduate, sat in her Gainesville home on Northwest 15th Street and began writing a pamphlet that helped nationally spark the eration. The 32-page pamphlet called Toward a Female Liberation Movement, published in 1968, empowered women to speak up for themselves, their bodies and their role in society beyond domesticity and the control of men. The pamphlet was co-authored with Beverly Jones, another feminist-activist pioneer. It was one of the single most important liberation movement, fellow feminist activist Kathie Sarachild said in an April 2010 Gainesville panel discussion on local womOn Saturday, members of National ganization, are holding a commemorative luncheon for the civil rights activist and pioneering radical feminist. The event is cosponsored by the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at UF. Brown, a Gainesville native, died in 1991 after a three-year battle with breast cancer. Every year since, activists from Gainesville and all over the United States come back to pay her tribute. Women were oppressed back then, and Judy made me see that, said Carol Giardiing. studies at Queens College in New York and a published author, Giardina, now in her mid-60s, will talk about Brown, her legacy tion movement. Brown and Giardina were good friends South, when the pamphlet was published. Giardina said the organization served as an outlet for women to help one another realize their potential.

HE HAS BEEN A TATTOO ARTIST FOR 10 YEARS. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterAs a kid growing up in Virginia, Mike Salay always thought if you wanted to be a good skateboarder, you had to have lots of tattoos. He was often in trouble with his parents for drawing skulls on his arms and the backs of his hands with marker, which was hard to scrub off before church on Sunday. Salay, 36, the new co-owner of Anthem Tattoo Parlor with his wife, Samantha, didnt grow up to be a famous skater, but he is covered in tattoos. Designs of all kinds start at his wrists and nearly obscure his skin up to the elbows. Both arms, his chest and one leg serve as a canvas for tattoos he put on himself and those he let other people put on him in his lust for permanent body art. In his 10 years as a tattoo artist, hes seen it all. A tough guy will be sitting in a chair while getting an arm or a back piece, head propped on his free arm, when suddenly his head droops and hes slumped in the chair, unconscious, Salay said. was working at Bodytech, one of Salays clients fainted and soiled himself while having a cross tattooed in the middle of his back. Nothing shocks him anymore. People come in here, theyre like, Hey, I want to get my wiener tattooed. And Im like, OK, a hundred bucks, he said. But Salay said he has also made is fair share of mistakes when it comes to tattoos. Shortly after high school, Salay too artist he found and offered up his wrist as the permanent resting of a quarter, which I paid way too much for $75. Some time after that, he heard that a tattoo artist he was acquainted with was looking for an apprentice, so he jumped on it. The job consisted of setting up the tattoo machine. Another friend helped him get some tattooing materials from a pawn shop. As soon as he got home, he tattooed a small star on the inside of his left ankle. He tattooed the top of his right thigh after work the same day. They were the tooed in his living room. Salay didnt get any formal tattooing training at the apprenticeship, so he said he didnt know what needles to use or how to stretch the skin properly while doing a tattoo. I made a lot of people really ugly in the beginning, he said. For those questionable works of art, Salay said he mainly operated on the barter system. Now, he charges $100 an hour for large, multiple-appointment tattoos, although he still does plenty of little ones for Anthems shop minimum of $50. I try not to do the same tattoo twice, he said. On a recent Wednesday, Salay could be found in the shop, taking side of a clients left bicep. This is my favorite part of tattooing: shaving other dudes, he said. With Rob DeCespedes, the client, watching in a full-length mir ror, Salay meticulously positioned and re-positioned the tattoo design symbols from video games Galaga and Super Mario Brothers on the mans arm, ensuring perfect placement. That design was completed in an hour, but some of the most labor-intensive pieces Salays done ish. One such piece was a full-sleeve tattoo of a blue koi on Salays friend Sean Garrity. Salay did it in several sittings, each three or four hours long. At a minimum, he guessed the whole tattoo took 15 hours to complete. He does great work, but hes humble about it, Garrity said. Hes in a continual stage of progression, he said. Hes one of the best in Gainesville, as far as Im concerned. 20, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffMike Salay and his wife, Samantha, took over ownership of Anthem Tattoo Parlor on Sept. 2.

yourself standing, thats pretty good, never mind being in a game, Donovan said. The biggest spark for UFs long-range explosion might have come from two players new to wearing a Gators uniform. In his freshman debut, Bradley Beal lived up to his would have had a chance for more, but he fouled out with Beal was also the lone starting guard to not have a turnover.

MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer The Gators season is standing on one leg, and so, too, are their hopes of winning on Saturday. Quarterback John Brantley and running back Chris Rainey are the strength of the offense, but without them fully healthy, the Gators have struggled to move the ball and score points, especially in the second half. of four straight losses since Brantley went down with a sprained ankle against Alabama, Florida has scored 11 points. In those same four games, the offense has rushed for just 88 total yards and has just four drives of six plays or longer in the second half, which have resulted in zero points. Brantleys return was supposed to open up running lanes, but his stillhurting ankle prevented him from taking snaps from under center, which is key to establishing the run.

The men usually have a meet followed by a week or more of training while the women seemingly have three meets a week. With all of the work the team has done already this season, one has to wonder whether fatigue is going to be an issue going for ward, especially going into this weekends competition against Stanford and Michigan. After last weeks loss to Geor gia, senior leader Sarah Bateman attributed the disappointing result to fatigue, saying were at differ ent points in our seasons right now. I know our team is really tired. All of the work the Gators are going through now, though, is just another part of the plan to keep their focus on the Southeastern Conference and NCAA championships in March. At the end of the year were going to go to a four-day competition at the conference meet, coach Gregg Troy said. Its high stress every day, twice a day, so youre looking at eight tough sessions. In his press conference on Monday, Troy also gave a different way of looking at how fatigue will play a role in his teams perfor mances. He said that this weeks schedule equates to a regular week of training, with the meets themselves taking the place of what he calls the quality work portion of the practice. The test for this Gators team will come today and Saturday, when they head north to Ann Ar bor, Mich. There, they will have another chance to prove themselves against tough competition, particularly a Stanford squad that placed fourth at the NCAA Championships last spring.

BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer When No. 17 Floridas volleyball team was swept last weekend by Southeastern Conference opMary Wises tenure, bright spots were not easy to come by. Transition defense was poor, the offense was hindered heavily by poor touches and the Gators were largely eliminated from the race for an SEC title. But it was Chloe Mann, a sophomore middle blocker from Gainesville, who managed to bring a bit of light to an overwhelmingly dark weekend. I just saw everything shes brought every day in practice for the last three years, junior middle blocker Betsy Smith said. Shes one of the best competitors Ive played with. Now Mann, who attended Eastside High School and played club volleyball for the Gainesville Juniors, looks to be in line for increased playing time as Florida (17-5, 10-3 SEC) opens a weekend homestand against Alabama (1114, 4-10 SEC) today at 4 p.m. in the OConnell Center. No question, Wise said. It was a matter of the timing. She took full advantage of it. On Friday against No. 16 Tennessee, Mann came off the bench just as she has done 13 previous times this season. In the four-set loss, she impressed coaches in very limited action with two kills and a block assist. Combined with the play of senior middle blocker Cassandra Anderson who had her lowest blocking numbers in two weeks Mann was called upon for her third start of the season Sunday against Kentucky. We thought because of her size and her physical play that she might be able to match up better with Kentuckys middles, and she What ensued was a career per formance.

Its nice being able to play with that. Last season, Mann had just seven kills and two blocks on the year while playing in a four-person middle blocker rotation that included the since-departed Lauren Bledsoe. But with just three middle blockers in the rotation in 2011, chances have increased noticeably for Mann. Its kind of been anyones game as to who will play, Mann said. We continue to just keep happens. Mann smiled and declined to give too much of a comment when asked if she knew who would start against Alabama. Its a get there and see, she said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 35 THEY PLAY TONIGHT IN SEC TOURNEY SEMIFINALS. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators are hoping for more of the same tonight, and that is something they would not have said two days ago. No. 23 Florida (15-6, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) will look to build on its opening-round win against Georgia as it takes on Alabama (10-7-3, 4-5-2 SEC) at the Or ange Beach SportsPlex in Orange Beach, Ala., tonight in its 16th SEC ance. Prior to the tournament, the Gators were mired in one of their worst stretches of conference play ever. Losses to LSU and South Carolina to end the regular season SEC defeats in the programs history. The most glaring issue for Flor ida down the stretch in the regular season was a tendency to fall behind after giving up early goals. The Gators trailed 1-0 in seven of 11 regular-season SEC games and utes in three of their last four. Florida fell behind 1-0 against Alabama on Oct. 9, a game which the Gators went on to win 4-1. But coach Becky Burleigh said there wont be the same margin for error tonight against the Crimson Tide. Ideally, we would like to not give up any goals, play from the sides going forward and get ahead early, Burleigh said. Thats the key for us. Not giving up an early goal was a big psychological lift for us, and so that would be the same strategy we would try to employ on Friday. on goal Wednesday after having just six total on frame in the prior two games. Burleigh attributed the increased focus on pushing the ball The results showed on the goahead goal against Georgia when keeper Taylor Burke played a long headed to senior forward Tahnai Annis. Annis shot it past the right of her two goals on the night. It takes a lot less out of you, emotionally, Annis said of playing with the lead. She believes the Gators success lies in their ability to continue to get out to the quick starts and limit the oppositions scoring chances. We just need to keep doing what we did [against Georgia], Annis said. We cant back off.

With 12 underclassmen out of 16 men, the Gators have shown they do not shy away from youth. While many other schools embrace experience and seniority, Florida instead relies on its freshmen and sophomores to challenge the regions older runners. Leading the youth movement are three of UFs brightest stars in the making: sophomores Mark Parrish and Matt Mizereck and freshman Jimmy Clark. tively, at the SEC Championships, not only boosted the Gators to a Following the race, coach Todd Morgan immediately recognized the success of the trio. Mark Parrish and Matt Mizereck really came through for us on the guys side, and we knew Jimmy Clark was a big-time guy and he proved that, Morgan said. Parrish, Mizereck and Clark were the only underclassmen to demands attention, says Mizereck. We really showed up at Tennessee and, hopefully by doing what we did out there, (other schools) will start to respect us, he said. So what if were young? You better watch out for what we are going to do in the next couple of years. Although the future appears bright for the ripening Gators, Clark doesnt want his team to forget about this season.

This is a new-look, new-approach Vandy that will be coming to Gainesville. It seems like they want it more this year, Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd said Wednesday. And if history is any indication, Florida will be in trouble Saturday. The last two close games between these two schools were in 2002 and 2005. Not shockingly, those seasons were 2002 and Urban Meyer in 2005. Vandy, 21-17, in Nashville, Tenn. The Gators needed a fourth-down stop with less than two minutes remaining to clinch the game. that season, it was a considerably better team than Vanderbilt. Florida had the No. 25 total offense and total defense that season, a marked advantage against Vandys 110th-ranked offense and 92nd-ranked defense. The Gators had their share of at quarterback in Rex Grossman, a standout receiver in Taylor Jacobs (who was the schools last 1,000yard receiver) and tight end Ben Troupe, just to name a few. Despite the discrepancies between the two teams, Vanderbilt gave Florida a scare. The same thing happened in Meyers debut season. The then-No. 13 Gators needed two overtimes to escape with a 49-42 win. That UF team had a mediocre offense (61st in the nation) and an elite defense (ninth in the nation), but it still had a decided advantage against a Vandy squad that boasted an average, Jay Cutler-led offense and a consider ably worse defense, with the No. 72 unit. With seven returners each on offense and defense, including a quarterback in Chris Leak who had two years of experience under his belt as a starter, even that Florida team had personnel that should have handled Vander bilt. But still, Vandy pushed Florida to the limit. So what should you expect this year, when the Gators once again square off against the Commodores with a new coach at the helm? This Florida team hasnt shown anything to make us think it will bounce back in this scenario. The Gators have And when players talk to the media, they seem detached when discussing their own team. Meanwhile, on paper, Vandy matches up with Florida more respectably than it did in 2002 and 2005. Florida touts the No. 94 offense in America, while Vandys also ranks in the bottom fourth of the nation, at No. 106. The Gators have a respectable, 14th-ranked total defense, and the Commodores have the No. 27 total defense. Its not the same old Vanderbilt, thats for sure, Commodores offensive tackle Wesley Johnson said this week.

HEAT AND DROUGHT CAUSED THE SHORTAGE. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterPeanut butter is a staple protein in biology sophomore Andy Mills diet. Mills, 20, loves it with apples, toasted bread or bagels, and, of course, as a main ingredient in his peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich. He eats it three times a week, he said. However, due to hot, dry summers in the South, fewer peanuts are being harvested this year, causing the price of peanut butter to rise. J.M. Smucker Co., which produces Jif peanut butter, announced a 30 percent wholesale price increase this month, according to a recent Associated Press article. Planter peanut butter, produced by Kraft Foods Co., raised its prices 40 percent on Oct. 31, according to the Associated Press. Although the price varies between brands, an average 8-ounce jar of peanut butter costs about $2.59 at Publix in Butler Plaza West. A 30 percent price increase on a $2.59 jar of peanut butter would be $3.37. Publix will adjust its prices depending on the cost increases, said Dwaine Stevens, Publix spokesman at the Jacksonville Division, which includes Gainesville stores. Publix has seen cost increases for peanut butter since July, and they will continue through the rest of the year, Stevens wrote in an email. Business sophomore Alexandra Danovitch, 19, already pays a little more for her all-natural peanut butter. Its slightly annoying especially because I only eat the natural kind, so its like an added dollar on top of that, she said. But there isnt much I can do about it. Mills said he would be willing to pay a little more for his peanut butter. It depends by how much it increases, he said. A couple of cents is no big deal, but if its a $3 jump, else to replace it. No matter the increase, biochemistry sophomore Yash Shah, 19, will still pay for smooth peanut butter. Shah, a vegetarian, gets his weekly protein by eating peanut butter with crackers and sometimes jelly. Even if the prices increase, Ill still buy peanut butter, he said. Peanut butter, which by law must be composed of at least 90 percent peanuts, is the leading use of peanuts produced in the U.S., according to the American Peanut Council, a trade association. U.S. farmers are projected to produce 1.8 million tons of peanuts this year, the smallest harvest since 2006 and down about 13 percent from last year, according to a recently released survey by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Peanuts grow in sandy soils from April to October. Florida grows about 6 percent of the peanuts in the United States. The 2010 peanut crop was excient rainfall. The heat resulted in toxin, a substance produced by fungus found in various crops, Stevens said. The 2010 peanut crop is characat least 30 years, he said. An estimated one-third of the crop is anticipated to be inedible.

Todays question: Do you like listening to music by Arab womens rights movement needs supportA longing for political liberty has fueled many of the recent uprisings in Arab and North African countries. First the efforts of protesters in Tunisia to oust President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali caused a massive chain reaction. Neighboring countries gazed at the willful power of their peers across the border and quickly developed their own anti-government demonstrations. Not long after, government opposition from other countries, including non-Ar ab countries, began to show their faces through similar protests. In particular, a resonating voice screamed across the world: If Tunisia can do it, so can we. Social media echoed this spirit via audio and video clips and live on our computers, televisions and cellphones. These anti-government demonstrations were, and still are, the major force behind groups of fervent citizens eager for political change change from the usual authoritarian leadership, change from the viciousness of genocide and torture and change from the absence of freedom and autonomy. for political change in their Islamic countries are Muslim women who wait for the day when their voices can be heard. In some ways, the issue of gender inequality transcends the been disrespected and stripped of basic human rights. Following in the footsteps of Tunisia, anti-government protests proceeded ardently in Yemen. The cries for change stemmed from President Ali Abdullah Salehs oppressive government regime. Known to be especially devious, Saleh welcomes violence as a means to achieve his goals and conYemeni women have been the silent sufferers of Salehs harsh government regime for three decades. For so long they have been subjugated to the authority of a cold-hearted man Recently, the women of Yemen reached a limit. After Salehs regime ravaged the homes of innocent families and killed them in the process, Yemeni women shuddered in fear for their own lives. And when Salehs forces attacked 60 women while killing their children, the Yemeni women could not stay quiet any longer. They collected their veils and burned them in protest of Salehs heinous actions. Standing together with power in their eyes, Yemeni women inciner ated the piece of cloth that held them back for so long. The Arab Spring has underscored the struggle for gender equality by inspiring women to take action into their own hands. The most commendable strength of the Arabic womens movement is that they remain undeterred by past history where social reform was a promise never kept. I recently heard a Saudi Arabian woman on the radio champion a strong belief: We are not looking for a revolution. We want evolution. The uprisings in Arab and North African countries have been met with some success, but the struggle for gender equality is continually marginalized. Islamic women are not looking for revolutionary action to be taken. They just want a voice. However, when acting alone, they face fatal reper cussions. This is a historic opportunity for the Western world to provide our support toward the womens rights movement. We have the power to assure that their movement succeeds. In the future, historians will judge us by the side of the fence we stood behind in the face of blatant gender discrimination. We must make the moral choice. It is time that we world.

Letters to the Editor FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Educational inequity a major issueTravis Hornsbys column Monday highlights perhaps the most pressing issue facing America today the gross disparities in academic achievement between students of low and high socioeconomic backgrounds at all levels of education. Currently, the U.S. is experiencing an educational crisis, and implications are seen and heard everywhere. The economies of our state and country are desper ate to compete in this innovative, technology-driven market, yet our knowledge of math and science consistently rank at the bottom of the list of developed nations. SAT scores, which can be used to predict future economic success, have been steadily declining through the years. And when it comes to courses that are not subject to standardized testing, like social sciences, deteriorating or nearly nonexistent. As college students and the most recent products of the K-12 system, we all have our stories. Often, however, no story is more compelling than that of a student from a low-income and/or disadvantaged background. The larger picture that all these stories paint is disheartening and, quite frankly, unacceptable. Consider that the average math and reading skills of a black or Hispanic 12thgrader are equivalent to the average of a white eighth-grader. Or that only 8 per cent of kids from a low-income community will graduate from college. That in some neighborhoods, one is more likely to know someone who went to jail than someone who attended a four-year university. In a nation that prides itself as a place for equal opportunity, it is troubling and ironic to see that not everyone has access to a quality education. Educational inequity is perhaps the greatest social issue of our generation, yet so little attention is paid to it by our peers. If we are to solve this national injustice, in order to identify tangible solutions to these problems on both local and state levels. Starting with our community, how do we ensure that students of color and low-income backgrounds have the right tools and preparation to become a part of the Gator Nation? Is UF doing everything it can to enhance the experience of this group? Vicky Riquelme & Andrew Hecht Gators College Access Network Abortion affects more than one bodyIn Rosemary Daniels guest column, she stated her opinion that a womans right to have an abortion is unalienable. A woman having full rights of her own body sounds good if it is only her body she is affecting. When she has an abortion performed, she has just ended the life of another. The Declaration of Independence states that life is an unalienable right; It hardly mentions the taking of another humans life for convenience. Rachel Crow UF Student Politicians altering Occupy dialogueI was enraged by the article titled Occupy Gainesville, Occupy UF pair up for demonstration. Police brutality trumps reckless oil industry practices in the Occupy dialogue. police when peacefully protesting in Oakland, Calif., many feared it would change the Occupy dialogue. The article entitled Occupy Gainesville, Occupy UF pair up for demonstration is proof enough that the politicians have changed the dialogue by ordering militarized agencies to attack peaceful, unarmed protesters. The article that ran last week focused on the federal banking system, the economy and police brutality; Instead, the article should have focused on banking, the economy and the environment. For example, Bank of America is a powerful company that controls much of the economy and is heavily invested in environmentally unsustainable and devastating coal mining operations. The environment is the key issue that was overlooked by the article. BP is continuing to destroy wetlands. Shell is expanding drilling in the Ever glades and planning on destroying the Arctic. And the Keystone Tar Sands pipeline is going to drive animals to extinction. Meanwhile, public hearings are not being held, public comments are disappearing from ecologists locally and conservation biologists globally are not being heard. out all legal and political actions revolving these oil expansion projects. These oil companies are using regulatory capture to control our government. This should be the dialogue. Instead, the article last week focused on hiring thugs to brutalize protesters, which is a step away from hiring thugs to kill ecologists, like what is happening with the rainforest activists in Brazil. It was in bad taste that the article focused on police brutality but failed to mention the awarded war veteran Scott Olsen, whose ability to speak was literally taken away by the brain damage he received from being shot in the face when exercising his freedom of speech. This should enter into the dialogue, but police brutality ought not take center stage instead of the regulatory capture that has occurred in our government. In fact, police brutality is inevitable as we struggle to liberate ourselves from the 1 percent that would see the long-term sustainability of the human population jeopardized for its short-term, personal economic gains.

The reality of this is some people get pissed at the fact youre here, and your brilliance gets dismissed. In spoken word style, Johnson encour aged about 80 people at the Educational Access Summit to brainstorm solutions and ideas to fix Floridas education system. Students did more than just take notes. They broke into groups and came up with recommendations to fix the education system on the spot. Groups presented their ideas on stage, suggesting teachers try to relate better to low-income students, create more high school mentor programs and improve college advising. The event was hosted by Gators College Access Network and sponsored by various student organizations and departments, including Student Government, Gators for Educational Equity and the Office of Academic Support. Andrew Hecht, president of Gators College Access Network, said the best recommendations made Thursday will be sent to various UF academic departments. Will we solve all of our problems here? Hecht said. Probably not, but the conversation has to start somewhere. Some people suggested lobbying against the FCAT and fixing problems with school funding. Some thought the event was a step in the right direction. I feel like these are the problems that we need to start going against, said Dino Medic, 18, a biology freshman who came from a low-income family. Everyone here is passionate about changing things. As the first in his family to attend college, Medic said the summit was worthwhile for him.

In the back of his mind, he knew his community newspaper was struggling, but hed make it work. Week after week, hed scrimp and cut. But Dupont, owner, publisher and editor of The North Florida Her ald, did the math and knew there was nothing left. The numbers said 59 years of history were about to end. The numbers said his newspaper was bankrupt. After several lean years, local businesses had cut back the frequency and size of their ads as they lost business due to the sluggish economy. Dupont said he needed $120,000 to keep the paper running through December 2012. The day he realized there wasnt enough money to survive, he sat in his Kia minivan with his 6-yearold son, Tripp, and knew what was about to happen: Hed let his interns go. Hed sell his computers. Hed lose his house. He drove home to his wife and Dupont announced the papers closing Sunday in an email to prospective interns. On Monday, he wrote the papers obituary.

The High Springs Herald was sold to another family in the late s. That family ran the paper until Campus Communications, also the owner of the Alligator, purchased it in 1990. Dupont bought it in 2009 and renamed it The North Florida Herald. It had a print circulation of 33,000 and about 2,000 visitors to its website daily. The paper was ranked the Best Community Newspaper six years in a row by the Florida Press Association up to 2010. This year, it took third, tied with The Coastal Star and behind The Islander and Navarre Press. The paper was known to cover birthday parties and anniversaries with as much gusto as shootings and plane crashes. Theres nobody here now to Dupont started his journalism career in middle school. After earning a staff job at The Palm Beach Post, he interned at The New York Times and said he was offered a job, but he decided he wanted to go to college and get a degree.

In 1995, he left for a job at the Charlotte Sun Herald in Charlotte County, where he worked to pioneer the online newspaper industry newspaper websites. He was then hired by the St. Petersburg Times in 1998 to develop the papers website, but by 2003 he was ready to go back to his roots. Four months later, he returned as editor of the Herald. In 2009, he bought the paper, putting his house up as collateral. For Dupont, his time at The Her ald has been more than a job. Its been a community service.

JULIA GLUMAlligator Contributing WriterWhenever he has a second of spare time, sophomore Stephen Hanson leaves UF for Terrance County. All he has to do is open his laptop, and suddenly hes in the halls of its community high school, walking next to Jason, who is struggling with the backlash of being publicly homosexual in a conservative town. Plot twist: Terrance County is not real. Then again, neither is Jason. Hanson is just one of more than 200,000 people participating in National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. Participants attempt to write 50,000 words about the length of a novel within 30 days. The annual month of marathon writing started Tuesday and will last until Nov. 30. Gainesville had 181 active NaNoWriMo writers last year, many of whom were college students, said Christy Shorey, UF library assistant and co-municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo. During November, student writers voluntarily add writing a novel to their packed schedules. It can be tricky with time management, but its always a good break from the heavy academic stuff to be able to escape into the story that youre writing, said Shorey, who has reached the 50,000-word mark eight times. Hanson, a 19-year-old music composition sophomore, needs all the time he can get. He has replaced free time with writing time, he said. Whenever I have a second or a couple minutes between class or even during class if the subject isnt particularly engaging Ill whip out my laptop and just start typing, Hanson said.

They also had to be back in their dorms by 10 p.m. and could not be seen kissing men in public. If they failed to do any one of these things, they were issued an offense slip. Three offense slips and she was locked in her dorm for the weekend while men did what they wanted. In 1967, fed up with what she called male supremacy, Judith Brown, a 27-yearold UF graduate, sat in her Gainesville home on Northwest 15th Street and began writing a pamphlet that helped nationally spark the eration. The 32-page pamphlet called Toward a Female Liberation Movement, published in 1968, empowered women to speak up for themselves, their bodies and their role in society beyond domesticity and the control of men. The pamphlet was co-authored with Beverly Jones, another feminist-activist pioneer.

ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterAs a kid growing up in Virginia, Mike Salay always thought if you wanted to be a good skateboarder, you had to have lots of tattoos. He was often in trouble with his parents for drawing skulls on his arms and the backs of his hands with marker, which was hard to scrub off before church on Sunday. Salay, 36, the new co-owner of Anthem Tattoo Parlor with his wife, Samantha, didnt grow up to be a famous skater, but he is covered in tattoos. Designs of all kinds start at his wrists and nearly obscure his skin up to the elbows. Both arms, his chest and one leg serve as a canvas for tattoos he put on himself and those he let other people put on him in his lust for permanent body art. In his 10 years as a tattoo artist, hes seen it all. A tough guy will be sitting in a chair while getting an arm or a back piece, head propped on his free arm, when suddenly his head droops and hes slumped in the chair, unconscious, Salay said. was working at Bodytech, one of Salays clients fainted and soiled himself while having a cross tattooed in the middle of his back. Nothing shocks him anymore. People come in here, theyre like, Hey, I want to get my wiener tattooed. And Im like, OK, a hundred bucks, he said. But Salay said he has also made is fair share of mistakes when it comes to tattoos. Shortly after high school, Salay too artist he found and offered up his wrist as the permanent resting of a quarter, which I paid way too much for $75. Some time after that, he heard that a tattoo artist he was acquainted with was looking for an apprentice, so he jumped on it. The job consisted of setting up the tattoo machine. Another friend helped him get some tattooing materials from a pawn shop. As soon as he got home, he tattooed a small star on the inside of his left ankle. He tattooed the top of his right thigh after work the same day. They were the tooed in his living room. Salay didnt get any formal tattooing training at the apprenticeship, so he said he didnt know what needles to use or how to stretch the skin properly while doing a tattoo. I made a lot of people really ugly in the beginning, he said. For those questionable works of art, Salay said he mainly operated on the barter system. Now, he charges $100 an hour for large, multiple-appointment tattoos, although he still does plenty of little ones for Anthems shop minimum of $50. I try not to do the same tattoo twice, he said. On a recent Wednesday, Salay could be found in the shop, taking side of a clients left bicep. This is my favorite part of tattooing: shaving other dudes, he said. With Rob DeCespedes, the client, watching in a full-length mirror, Salay meticulously positioned and re-positioned the tattoo design symbols from video games Galaga and Super Mario Brothers on the mans arm, ensuring perfect placement. That design was completed in an hour, but some of the most labor-intensive pieces Salays done ish. One such piece was a full-sleeve tattoo of a blue koi on Salays friend Sean Garrity. Salay did it in several sittings, each three or four hours long. At a minimum, he guessed the whole tattoo took 15 hours to complete. He does great work, but hes humble about it, Garrity said. Hes in a continual stage of progression, he said. Hes one of the best in Gainesville, as far as Im concerned. 20, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffMike Salay and his wife, Samantha, took over ownership of Anthem Tattoo Parlor on Sept. 2. Tattoo artist always evolving, never does same design twice

yourself standing, thats pretty good, never mind being in a game, Donovan said. The biggest spark for UFs long-range explosion might have come from two players new to wearing a Gators uniform. In his freshman debut, Bradley Beal lived up to his would have had a chance for more, but he fouled out with Beal was also the lone starting guard to not have a turnover. Coach Donovan tells us every time in practice, Take it. If youre open, take it, Beal said. He doesnt have a problem with us shooting threes or the amount of threes that we took as long as we realize its not always going to be that way. Coming off the bench reer, redshirt junior transfer Mike Rosario continued the ing Beals 4-of-7 shooting behind the arc. Im so proud of him because I feel like hes an amazing freshman, Rosario said. Hes been thrown into him to be so mature about everything and be on top of everything that Coach Billy asks him to do, that shows a lot of character.

Were getting better at it, senior guard Erving Walker said. Weve been putting a lot of time and effort into it. Thats going to be one of our main calling cards, being that were not a big, grind-it-out team. We want to get transition points and get out and run. Floridas defense led to easy baskets in transition, albreak opportunities. The press started off shaky, as the Gators allowed the Cardinals to advance the ball and create good shot oppor tunities in the early going. But it didnt take long to tighten things up; Florida gave up just four points and had four steals in a nearly six-minute stretch that started Were still getting better, UF coach Billy Donovan said. I dont know if we totally under stood the reads and what were doing. Theyve got to make reads. When to rotate up, when to rotate back, when to trap, when to fake trap. And the Gators know the tests only get tougher from here. Forcing turnovers against a Catholic team Donovan acknowledged was greatly outmatched from a physical and athletic standpoint is one thing. Doing the same against the likes of Ohio State, which UF faces in just 11 days, is another. We felt great about the press, junior guard Kenny Boynton said. But, then again, we cant be too happy, this being an exhibition game. The Buckeyes dominated the Gators press last season, win.

During the four-game losing streak, UF has scored just 11 points and rushed for less than 100 total yards during the second half. FLORIDA OFFENSE HAS DISAPPEARED AFTER HALFTIME. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer The Gators season is standing on one leg, and so, too, are their hopes of winning on Saturday. Quarterback John Brantley and running back Chris Rainey are the strength of the offense, but without them fully healthy, the Gators have struggled to move the ball and score points, especially in the second half. of four straight losses since Brantley went down with a sprained ankle against Alabama, Florida has scored 11 points. In those same four games, the offense has rushed for just 88 total yards and has just four drives of six plays or longer in the second half, which have resulted in zero points. Brantleys return was supposed to open up running lanes, but his stillhurting ankle prevented him from taking snaps from under center, which is key to establishing the run.

Though the switch to a 3-point arc in the 1986-87 season once turned coach Billy Donovan into a lethal shooter as a player at Providence, he was initially concerned Thursday night in the OConnell Center about his teams number of attempts beyond the arc against Catholic. I didnt like the balance there, Donovan said. But I can honestly say, I dont know if we took one bad 3-point shot in the Ive been here, the last game that we took 40 3-point shots. On the strength of their deep rotation at guard, the No. 8 Gators converted 50 percent of those shots from deep and over whelmed the Cardinals 114-57. Florida was led behind the arc by junior guard Kenny Boynton, who tallied a gamehigh 21 points and 10 assists on 6-of-11 shooting from three.

The men usually have a meet followed by a week or more of training while the women seemingly have three meets a week. With all of the work the team has done already this season, one has to wonder whether fatigue is going to be an issue going for ward, especially going into this weekends competition against Stanford and Michigan. After last weeks loss to Geor gia, senior leader Sarah Bateman attributed the disappointing result to fatigue, saying were at differ ent points in our seasons right now. I know our team is really tired. All of the work the Gators are going through now, though, is just another part of the plan to keep their focus on the Southeastern Conference and NCAA championships in March. At the end of the year were going to go to a four-day competition at the conference meet, coach Gregg Troy said. Its high stress every day, twice a day, so youre looking at eight tough sessions. In his press conference on Monday, Troy also gave a different way of looking at how fatigue will play a role in his teams perfor mances. He said that this weeks schedule equates to a regular week of training, with the meets themselves taking the place of what he calls the quality work portion of the practice. The test for this Gators team will come today and Saturday, when they head north to Ann Ar bor, Mich. There, they will have another chance to prove themselves against tough competition, particularly a Stanford squad that placed fourth at the NCAA Championships last spring. As has been the case for most of the season, the Gators results will be decided largely by the perfor mances of their experienced core of seniors Teresa Crippen and Sarah Bateman, junior Jamie Bohunicky male Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday in recognition of her per formance against Georgia, when ley.

BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer When No. 17 Floridas volleyball team was swept last weekend by Southeastern Conference opMary Wises tenure, bright spots were not easy to come by. Transition defense was poor, the offense was hindered heavily by poor touches and the Gators were largely eliminated from the race for an SEC title. But it was Chloe Mann, a sophomore middle blocker from Gainesville, who managed to bring a bit of light to an overwhelmingly dark weekend. I just saw everything shes brought every day in practice for the last three years, junior middle blocker Betsy Smith said. Shes one of the best competitors Ive played with. Now Mann, who attended Eastside High School and played club volleyball for the Gainesville Juniors, looks to be in line for increased playing time as Florida (17-5, 10-3 SEC) opens a weekend homestand against Alabama (1114, 4-10 SEC) today at 4 p.m. in the OConnell Center. No question, Wise said. It was a matter of the timing. She took full advantage of it. On Friday against No. 16 Tennessee, Mann came off the bench just as she has done 13 previous times this season. In the four-set loss, she impressed coaches in very limited action with two kills and a block assist. Combined with the play of senior middle blocker Cassandra Anderson who had her lowest blocking numbers in two weeks Mann was called upon for her third start of the season Sunday against Kentucky. We thought because of her size and her physical play that she might be able to match up better with Kentuckys middles, and she What ensued was a career per formance. Mann had 10 kills, 4.5 blocks and seven digs against the No. 19 Wildcats. She hit a team-high .455 on 22 swings. ence has caught up with me, said Mann, who redshirted as a freshman. Its nice being able to play with that. Last season, Mann had just seven kills and two blocks on the year while playing in a four-person middle blocker rotation that included the since-departed Lauren Bledsoe. But with just three middle blockers in the rotation in 2011, chances have increased noticeably for Mann. Its kind of been anyones game as to who will play, Mann said. We continue to just keep happens. Mann smiled and declined to give too much of a comment when asked if she knew who would start against Alabama. Its a get there and see, she said. Meanwhile, it appears it will continue to be a practice battle between the three middle blockers for two starting spots.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 35 THEY PLAY TONIGHT IN SEC TOURNEY SEMIFINALS. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators are hoping for more of the same tonight, and that is something they would not have said two days ago. No. 23 Florida (15-6, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) will look to build on its opening-round win against Georgia as it takes on Alabama (10-7-3, 4-5-2 SEC) at the Orange Beach SportsPlex in Orange Beach, Ala., tonight in its 16th SEC ance. Prior to the tournament, the Gators were mired in one of their worst stretches of conference play ever. Losses to LSU and South Carolina to end the regular season SEC defeats in the programs history. The most glaring issue for Florida down the stretch in the regular season was a tendency to fall behind after giving up early goals. The Gators trailed 1-0 in seven of 11 regular-season SEC games and utes in three of their last four. Florida fell behind 1-0 against Alabama on Oct. 9, a game which the Gators went on to win 4-1. But coach Becky Burleigh said there wont be the same margin for error tonight against the Crimson Tide. Ideally, we would like to not give up any goals, play from the sides going forward and get ahead early, Burleigh said. Thats the key for us. Not giving up an early goal was a big psychological lift for us, and so that would be the same strategy we would try to employ on Friday. on goal Wednesday after having just six total on frame in the prior two games. Burleigh attributed the increased focus on pushing the ball The results showed on the goahead goal against Georgia when keeper Taylor Burke played a long headed to senior forward Tahnai Annis. Annis shot it past the right of her two goals on the night. It takes a lot less out of you, emotionally, Annis said of playing with the lead. She believes the Gators success lies in their ability to continue to get out to the quick starts and limit the oppositions scoring chances. We just need to keep doing what we did [against Georgia], Annis said. We cant back off. If we back off its when we let teams back into the game, so I think if we keep rolling with this momentum UF preparing for match with BamaBrett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida forward Tahnai Annis said the Gators are at an advantage JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer Losing a race to your little brother sucks, and Florida is the Southeastern Conferences little brother. With 12 underclassmen out of 16 men, the Gators have shown they do not shy away from youth. While many other schools embrace experience and seniority, Florida instead relies on its freshmen and sophomores to challenge the regions older runners. Leading the youth movement are three of UFs brightest stars in the making: sophomores Mark Parrish and Matt Mizereck and freshman Jimmy Clark. tively, at the SEC Championships, not only boosted the Gators to a Following the race, coach Todd Morgan immediately recognized the success of the trio. Mark Parrish and Matt Mizereck really came through for us on the guys side, and we knew Jimmy Clark was a big-time guy and he proved that, Morgan said. Parrish, Mizereck and Clark were the only underclassmen to demands attention, says Mizereck. We really showed up at Tennessee and, hopefully by doing what we did out there, (other schools) will start to respect us, he said. So what if were young? You better watch out for what we are going to do in the next couple of years. Although the future appears bright for the ripening Gators, Clark doesnt want his team to forget about this season. When asked if the team expects to make the NCAA National with bravado. Every season you go in with a winning attitude, Clark said. So to expect anything less is a disappointment.

This is a new-look, new-approach Vandy that will be coming to Gainesville. It seems like they want it more this year, Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd said Wednesday. And if history is any indication, Florida will be in trouble Saturday. The last two close games between these two schools were in 2002 and 2005. Not shockingly, those seasons were 2002 and Urban Meyer in 2005. Vandy, 21-17, in Nashville, Tenn. The Gators needed a fourth-down stop with less than two minutes remaining to clinch the game. that season, it was a considerably better team than Vanderbilt. Florida had the No. 25 total offense and total defense that season, a marked advantage against Vandys 110th-ranked offense and 92nd-ranked defense. The Gators had their share of at quarterback in Rex Grossman, a standout receiver in Taylor Jacobs (who was the schools last 1,000yard receiver) and tight end Ben Troupe, just to name a few. Despite the discrepancies between the two teams, Vanderbilt gave Florida a scare. The same thing happened in Meyers debut season. The then-No. 13 Gators needed two overtimes to escape with a 49-42 win. That UF team had a mediocre offense (61st in the nation) and an elite defense (ninth in the nation), but it still had a decided advantage against a Vandy squad that boasted an average, Jay Cutler-led offense and a consider ably worse defense, with the No. 72 unit. With seven returners each on offense and defense, including a quarterback in Chris Leak who had two years of experience under his belt as a starter, even that Florida team had personnel that should have handled Vander bilt. But still, Vandy pushed Florida to the limit. So what should you expect this year, when the Gators once again square off against the Commodores with a new coach at the helm? This Florida team hasnt shown anything to make us think it will bounce back in this scenario. The Gators have And when players talk to the media, they seem detached when discussing their own team. Meanwhile, on paper, Vandy matches up with Florida more respectably than it did in 2002 and 2005. Florida touts the No. 94 offense in America, while Vandys also ranks in the bottom fourth of the nation, at No. 106. The Gators have a respectable, 14th-ranked total defense, and the Commodores have the No. 27 total defense. Its not the same old Vanderbilt, thats for sure, Commodores offensive tackle Wesley Johnson said this week. And that should worry Gator Nation, because this isnt the same old Florida youre accustomed to, either.

JOE MORGANAlligator Writer Coach Amanda Butler had a vision for the Gators, and Jordan Jones wanted in. Jones wanted to beat Tennessee, play in the NCAA Tournament and put the Florida womens basketball program on the map. Three years later, Florida is still Conference title. Jones has been encouraged by a change in attitude within the program since her arrival but noted there is a sense of urgency among the senior class. When I was recruited, we ships, Jones said. We havent really come close yet. The Gators have compiled a 35since Jones joined the squad two seasons ago. Both campaigns ended in disappointing fashion, as Florida exited the Womens National Invitation Tournament in the second round in 2009-10 and third round in 2010-11.

Butler champions a balanced attack for the Gators offensively, and while Jones did lead the team in scoring last season, she did so with just 10.2 points per game. Thats the best way to go, she said. No one has all the pressure on their shoulders. We play relaxed. While Jones offensive numbers may be down, freshman point guard Carlie Needles said that opposing defenses still key in on Jones. People are going to have to worry about Jordan outside because if you have your hands down, shes going to shoot it no matter where she is, Needles head and still shoot it. Butler has noticed that some of translated to her play on the other side of the ball. Butler called Jones one of Flor idas steadiest defenders and referred to her as a stopper.
