At 11:30 a.m., half an hour before the parade began, Vanessa and 15-month-old Arabelle Kolb crawled and walked together near the Gator Wesley Foundation on University Avenue under the watchful eyes of their mothers, Camille Valenzuela, 26, and Danielle Kolb, 24, both Gainesville residents. Families braved the cold weather and lined University Avenue on Friday morning to watch the Homecoming parade, which began at noon and lasted about two hours.

Florida hadnt lost to Vanderbilt at home since 1945. But these arent the same old Commodores or the same old Gators. UF lost each of its four October contests, killing any hope of a Southeastern Conference title. On the opening possession against Vanderbilt, Omarius Hines turned a 39-yard catch-and-run into disaster. He fumbled the ball into the end zone as he spun toward the turf, resulting in a turnover. When the Commodores and quarterback Jordan Rodgers attempted a furious comeback late in the game, pulling within 6 with 10:54 remaining, the Gators persevered. They may not be able to avoid a disappointing season, but on Saturday they at least dodged downright embarrassment. Florida (5-4, 3-4 SEC) survived multiple lategame scares to down Vanderbilt, 26-21, in The Swamp, displaying their persistence and virtually securing a postseason bowl appearance. Thats the way theyve been all year long, coach Will Muschamp said. Theyve continued Chris Rainey, Floridas leader in rushing and receiving, tested his sprained right ankle before the game but was ultimately unable to play.

Dont expect to see a plaque with Mike Gillislees inspirational words pasted on the soon. Tim Tebow, he is not. But Gillislee summed up Floridas 26-21 win against Vanderbilt as well as anyone. It was it was relief, he said. Nothing more. Just a quick smile. Many writers have talked about this win curing ills, about this team showing some life in a season that was once considered lifeless. No. Its still dead. So much of this game is measured by expectations, and Florida has already fallen well short of its own. The Gators always, always expect to compete on the biggest stage. But now, for the last month of the season, Florida is not Florida. Players dont choose Gainesville so they can eastern Conference East. They dont envision celebrating a six-win season, partying because they stamped their tickets to the BBVA Compass Bowl or some other irrelevant destination. The Gators cant challenge the big boys. Instead, November is about saving face, about maintaining whatever pride is left, about feeling relieved. And more importantly, November is about next year. Its about building momentum going into the offseason and spring practices and training camp. Its about convincing someone you can one day be a champion, even if that someone is only your-SEE TYLER, PAGE 9Gators fend off late comeback, Win brings joy, but UF still a letdown in Tyler Jetttwitter: @tyler__jett

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 Nov. 11, 1964: The UF Legislative Council discusses televising the UF vs. FSU game through education stations at both schools because of the lack of student tickets available. UF receives 9,000 tickets for the game and sells the tickets for $5.15 each. Nov. 8, 1973: J. Robert Cade believes kidney dialysis treatment may be a cure for schizophrenia. His patient, 30-year-old Linda Cook, who suffered from schizophrenia for 15 years, claims to feel normal after undergoing dialysis treatment. Cade must perform additional research to see if kidney dialysis plays a role in schizophrenia. Cade is also the inventor of Gatorade. Nov. 8, 1988: UF basketball player Dwayne Schintzius is charged with two counts of battery and suspended from the team for allegedly attacking two men with a tennis racket behind a nightclub. Nov. 7, 1994: Homecoming celebrations earn mixed reviews despite increased attendance for every event. While attendee Brian Stenberg said he enjoyed the comedians at Gator Growl, which included Bobby Slayton and Sinbad, he said, The skits sucked. Nov. 7, 2005: UF narrowly defeats Vanderbilt 49-42 in double overtime after Gators cornerback Reggie Lewis catches a game-clinching interception. MINA RADMAN and RACHEL ROWAN ORGANIZERS ESTIMATE ABOUT 27,000 ATTENDED. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterAbout 27,000 students, alumni and Gator fans poured on Friday night for the annual Gator Growl pep rally. About 10,000 to 20,000 of them tried to get into the stadium around the same time, University Police Department Sgt. Mike Metz said. He said 100 to 200 people tried to slam through each gate. Gator Growl Director of Public Relations Cait Feroleto said part of the issue was that much of the audience arrived just before 7 p.m., when the show was scheduled to start. Most students had tickets that were for general admission, but some audience members had assigned seats. Daniella Cortes, a 20-yearold public relations junior, and David Armas, a 20-yearold advertising junior, were in their seats for an hour and a half until they left to use the bathroom. When they came back, security guards told them they had to relocate because they were sitting in a reserved block. The thing is, when I bought my ticket, they said I could sit anywhere, Armas said. Gator Growl Producer Aaron Heger said moving the stage from the north end zone to the student section of the stadium changed the seating arrangements. Audience seating ran from one end zone to the other on the alumni side of the stadium on Friday. In past years, the audience was split between the student and alumni bleachers. Hiccups will happen sometimes with major changes, Heger said. He said Growl was slightly understaffed with ushers, which contributed to the seating confusion. He estimated that 27,000 people attended the pep rally, available at press time. Feroleto said this was the sion seating. Next year, well probably plan the seating a little better, maybe go back to assigned seating with blocks and stuff.Seating changes cause confusion at Growl DAVID WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterFor some, running a half marathon seems nothing short of impossible. The Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon, geared to help all types of runners develop healthy lifestyles, attempts to change that perception. The half marathon, hosted by the Florida Track Club, is scheduled for Saturday at 8 a.m. at Boulware Springs Park in Gainesville. The most important part is to have a race where participants can feel like they have accomplished something, said Mark Ou, the race coordinator for the Florida Track Club. If you work hard at something like running, you never know what else you can accomplish. The Florida Track Clubs goal is to give runners, experienced and otherwise, the opportunity to cultivate healthy habits that will be seen in both running and the rest of their lives, Ou said. Running is the cheapest, easiest thing you can do to stay in shape and to stay busy, he said. John Culver, a 21-year-old environmental science senior, ran the half marathon in 2009 and placed among the top runners. Its not so much about running a whole bunch of miles on your own that is exhilarating, but its hanging out with your friends for an hour and a half in the morning and challenging yourself, he said. He said that as a college student, running is important as both a stress reliever and a way to stay focused. Ive memorized more organic chemistry structures in my head while running than I have any other time, Culver said. They may not be right, but I memorized them. because it gives runners an opportunity to focus on the racing experience, not the courses technical aspects, Culver said. Early registration for the half marathon is $25 for track club members and $30 for non-members until Nov. 8.Half marathon encourages healthy living If you work hard at something like running, you never know what else you can accomplish.Mark Ourace coordinator for the Florida Track Club

The twoComedian Joel McHale, who performed at Gator Growl on Friday night, sat atop a convertible in the parade and took photos and videos of the crowd as the car drove down the street.

Jared Dauth, 21, and Maya Mansuer, 23, were spotted trespassing at a construction site for a federal courthouse in Jacksonville during the Florida-Georgia weekend, according to reports. But it wasnt their property violation that warranted attention from the media. The students, after having a few drinks, apparently decided they needed to get to know one another better. Who knows? Perhaps they met at the game and needed some privacy to explore their feelings. So, they climbed the fence at the construction site and proceeded to confess their newfound love for each other all over a nearby picnic table, taking the phrase eating out to a whole new level. OK, well get to the point. They were naked and having sex. Someone spotted them, reported it to authorities and now they are facing charges for trespassing and indecent exposure. Come on, people! Have some common sense. Yes, the Florida-Georgia game is the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, but not in the way that these students interpreted it. UF not only lost the game that weekend, it also lost a few class points. For one thing, dont have sex in public. Dont do it. Yes, alcohol impairs your judgment, but getting a no-tell motel If this is too hard of a principle for you to wrap your brain around, maybe you either shouldnt drink, or you could tattoo Dont have sex in public on your forearm. Thats classier than actually engaging in the act. For another thing, dont trespass, and especially dont trespass on state or federal property to perform your dirty deeds. Do you really want to have a felony trespassing charge for doing the nasty? One would hope that college-aged individuals, especially those over the age of 21, would be able to control their carnal urges. Clearly, this wasnt the case. Everyone has crazy stories from college, but something about remember the time we were caught butt-naked having sex at the construction site for the new federal courthouse during the Florida-Georgia game doesnt have the nostalgic ring to it like other crazy college stories. Let these two individuals serve as an example of what not to do while representing UF students anywhere and everywhere.Students overcrowd anthropology departmentGov. Rick Scott clearly touched a nerve a few weeks ago when he bashed anthropology majors, saying he thought we had too many. The local responses were furious. While I disagree with his implied premise that a liberal arts education is not as valuable as a STEM education, we really do have too many anthropology majors. First, discussing anthropology is just a metaphor for the larger problem regarding how students select their majors in college. Anthropology is an incredibly important discipline. I have many friends who I am convinced will use what they learned in their anthropology coursework here at UF to change the world for the better. I am not attacking the subject itself, which is how I think many people construed the governors comments. However, we have 634 anthropology majors this fall at UF. There is no way even 10 percent of these students ing wage coming out. Its clear from talking with friends that the major can be tough if you apply yourself and do research, but it can also be unbelievably easy if you coast, which is what a good number of people are doing. I know people who majored in psychology and English who are having a really tough time right now in the job market. This is partly due to the reputation these majors have because of the less serious students who choose them. If you are not sure about what to major in, please dont major in psychology. There are countless other departments that teach you interesting things that might give you a good GPA if you look hard enough. Geology, physics, geography, chemistry and the foreign languages are all areas that have the capacity for more students. I think there is a herd mentality in college where you want to major in the same discipline as your friends, and this is a detriment to everyone. I came to UF and majored in political science. While I think it is a valuable major, it was a very large one. I decided to look around more and found the statistics and economics departments, which have been more than 1,400 psychology majors, there is clearly a problem at UF. I cant really blame the governor for asking a serious question: Why should the state give funding for students to study a subject when the data suggests they are not as able to get jobs as others? I think the answer is to encourage people who want to be anthropologists to study anthropology. If you are really reason to study the subject, as long as you are willing to participate in internships and extracurricular activities to prepare yourself for the job market. I dont have the answers, but perhaps the professors in these overcrowded departments could raise the grading standards. This would discourage all but the most serious students from studying these disciplines. There would be an incentive to shop more heavily for whats truly interesting to a student. certainly cheaper ways to do it. The state government should not force people to change their majors, but they should absolutely provide incentives for people to study subjects they view as critical to the state. As long as UF receives state money, the state of Florida should have a say in how the institution is educating students. If you want an easy major and dont want to work hard, give those students who want to be psychologists or anthropologists a break by not overcrowding their classes. Go to the business college.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7 The sirens blared, the horns honked and the whistles whistled. I sat up in my tower like an apathetic damsel waiting breathing dragon. I was just trying to practice for the LSAT in my room while the Homecoming parade was going on down below. Dear lord, I thought to myself. Is this what Ive become?

Sara Solano is a journalism senior at UF.Dont lose sight of yourself as you transition to adulthoodGuest columnSara SolanoSpeaking Out Welcome to the Groupon economy. Weve entered a new age where cou company ever, Groupon merges Internet retail conscious customers discounts for everyday products and services. But, to a handful of wary merchants, this is too good to be true. Originally hailed as the savior of small business, Groupon represents a machine that could cause the death of the in dustry. The Et tu, Brute? of it all is that weve seen this story before: The fundamental me chanics behind the Groupon business model share a striking similarity to those of the sub prime mortgage industry. To make sure were on the same page, thats not good. Groupons business model is nothing short of fascinating. Groupon is a daily deals site for a variety of businesses. Millions of users re ceive emails about daily deals, featuring prod opt in for these deals, and once a threshold is reached, The deal is on. Thanks to the com mitted buying power of large groups, Grou pon is able to offer discounts between 50 and 90 percent. Why would any merchant offer their prod ucts at unrecoverable low prices? Advertising. In theory, these heavy discounts lure in an un get them into the store and ultimately convert for struggling local businesses, where imme diate cash needs and a desire for new custom ers are high on their lists. repeat business and Groupon, all the while, gets a piece of the action. Unfortunately, its a The average Groupon is 50 percent off a business just eliminated half its revenue. From there, Groupon pockets half of those sales just for just being Groupon, so what looks like 50 percent is actually only 25 percent for the retailer. Take this to the next level: Groupon third. An item that normally goes for $50 ul timately returns under $13 for any given busi ness, spread unevenly over a quarter of a year. Long story short: Businesses working with Groupon are being sold an advertising cam paign that resembles a very, very expensive loan. With a Groupon, the business is given a small amount of cash over three months from the coupon sales from Groupon, and in exchange, businesses must sell customers tre mendously undercut products. This is a machine Bernie Madoff would be smitten with. And worst of all, the goal that makes it worth it for businesses to target new repeatable sales lacks any substance. er loyal market, but the reality is that Groupon buyers arent actually any of those promised loyal consumers. Instead, Groupon purchas ing demographic with little to zero expressed loyalty in Groupon businesses, outside of that initial discount. A keen look into the Groupon model re subprime mortgage industry. Replace busi ness with mortgage bearers, Groupon consumer with subprime mortgage inves tor and Groupon with security issuer, and it suddenly becomes an analogy for debt parties. Sure, I could probably create analo gies between the yogurt industry and Ponzi schemes if I wanted to, but the main point is to illustrate what happens when the Groupon ecosystem crumbles. It all comes down to the weakest link, which in this case is the strug gling local businesses that are resorting to advertisements. What happens if they go out of business because of the Groupon? What happens if they anticipate bankruptcy and refuse Groupons halfway through? In both cases, businesses and customers lose. And, make a claim against their purchase. Because Groupons, rebating these customers would Slowly but surely, a machine too big to fail can suffer from the same incremental micro events that occurred during the housing crisis, col lapsing Groupon and bankrupting thousands of small businesses whose Groupon account receivables well exceed their almost nonexis tent cash balances. Rational people would never submit to this. But thousands of struggling businesses are doing so in record droves. You cant fault them. Millions of consumers are buying Grou pons because theyre worth it, building un precedented buzz that small business owners have no reason to question. Until now.

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff Writer The Obama administration has denied an online petition with more than 70,000 supporters calling for the legalization of marijuana. Jordan Shepherd, a 19-year-old psychology junior, said the White Houses response hasnt hurt the movement toward legalization. Rather, it has done the opposite. I think by actually completely ignoring the movement, hes made it stronger, said Shepherd, president of the UF chapter of NORML, a national organization that aims to repeal marijuana prohibition. The petition, Legalize and Regulate Marijuana in a Manner Similar to Alcohol, has 74,169 signatures. It is one of eight marijuanarelated petitions the White House responded to on its We the People website. Online petitions need 25,000 signatures within 30 days to elicit a response from the administration. National Drug Control Policy, wrote the response to the marijuana petitions. Shepherd said he was surprised the administration chose Kerlikowske to respond. Its legally written in his job description that he is forced to oppose legalization, he said. Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 1998, Kerlikowskes responsibilities as director include taking any actions necessary to oppose the legalization of certain controlled substances, including marijuana. He wrote that, according to the National Institutes of Health, marijuana use is associated with cognitive impairment, addiction and respiratory disease. Kerlikowske also wrote the administration is interested in researching the drugs potential medical uses, but that the Food and Drug Administration and the Institute of Medicine have not found that smoked marijuana meets standards for safe and effective medicine. Following the White Houses response, similar petitions have surfaced. One, titled Respond to the Marijuana Legalization Petition with an Argument that Doesnt Also Apply to Alcohol, was created on Oct. 28 and had 4,389 signatures Sunday. Despite the petitions, UF political science professor Albert Matheny wrote in an email that the issue probably wont be a main concern among politicians for a while. I think its one of those third rail issues that no mainstream politician is ever going to touch, he wrote, since the people who want it can get as much as they want, and the people who dont want it are at least symbolically they dont work. Students rally for legal marijuanaRESEARCH SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers are developing a potential one-time gene therapy treatment for osteoarthritis, a chronic joint disease. The National Institutes of Healths National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases awarded a one-year $900,000 grant to UF researchers to continue their laboratory studies of osteoarthritis gene therapy in horses. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, is a condition in which cartilage in the joints wears away, causing bare bones to rub against each other. Currently, there is no cure for the condition. Though people can take pain medication for temporarily relief, over time they will lose mobility, said Dr. Steven Ghivizzani, the principal investigator and a professor of orthopaedics and rehabilitation in the UF College of Medicine. About 27 million Americans age 25 and older have osteoarthritis, according to the National Institutes of Health. The human body is capable of making cesses, but in an osteoarthritis patient the proteins break down too quickly to stop the degeneration. UF researchers are taking these genes that block the disease and delivering them into the cells at high levels, Ghivizzani said. Ghivizzani is working with the UF College of Veterinary Medicine to develop this gene therapy in horses. The therapy will deliver genetic material and produce a therapeutic protein at the site of the disease. Horses joints are mechanically similar to human joints, said Patrick Colahan, a College of Veterinary Medicine and coinvestigator of the study. Horses have a very big problem with osteoarthritis, Colahan said. They are the most athletic of the domestic animals. Rachael Watson, the studys postdoctoral associate, deals with the projects daily operations. Watson makes the virus and evaluates how well the therapeutic protein works in the horses. The results have been promising so far, she said. Scientists search for cure for osteoarthritis in horse jointsKerlikowske Horses have a very big problem with osteoarthritis.

self. Florida needed to beat Vanderbilt to prove that it could actually win again, that it could maybe be Florida again sometime soon. Thats why every Gators player, coach and fan let out a collective sigh of relief when Jordan Reed snagged Vanderbilts onside kick to preserve the win. If Reed doesnt hold on to the ball, or if Vanderbilt doesnt bail out Florida with a pass interference on its last drive, or if Commodores defensive tackle Rob Lohr doesnt jump offside on a fourth-and-1, or if the refer ees dont ignore a blatant pass interference by DeAnte Saunders on a third-and-8 on the previous drive, Vanderbilt wins Saturday. By the end of the fourth quarter, UFs cornerbacks with 297 passing yards and three total touchdowns. Coach Will Muschamp chided his defensive backs after the game for going soft, but that has become the Still, the Gators came out with the win. They can breathe. Earl Okine described the locker room after Satur days win as ecstatic. Jeff Demps and Gillislee said they could sleep sound again. John Brantley said his teammates would wear a smile the kind Gillislee And we all know what game they were watching, because there was really only one game worth watching Saturday. If the Alabama-LSU game felt familiar, its because Florida used to be on that stage, used to thrive on it, even. Like Gillislee, Matt Elams words wont ever be immortalized. Still, his thoughts on Saturday are worth noting, courtesy of Twitter. Why cant Elam be in this game right now, he wrote in third person. Maybe you will get to play in that game one day, Matt, but the journey starts now. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 Dana Burke / Alligator StaffFlorida running back Jeff Demps celebrates after scoring on a 52-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter Saturday. TYLER, from page 1Demps rushes for career-high 158, 2 TDsDefensive tackle Dominique Easley said the Gators got a monkey off their back. Safety Matt Elam, defensive end Earl Okine and linebacker Jon Bostic called the mood in the Gators locker room ecstatic, regardless of the mediocre results this season. It was crazy, Bostic said. Everybody was ready to get that W. We went out there and got it. The key to Floridas success was a renewed running game. After rushing for 175 yards in October, the Gators churned out 197 against the Commodores. Demps was limited by an ankle injury throughout the month, rushing a combined 13 times for 16 yards. On Saturday, he carried the ball 23 times for 158 yards and two touchdowns, displaying his all-world speed. With senior quarterback John Brantleys ankle injury keeping him from taking snaps under center, the Gators resorted to the pistol formation. The new look, which the Gators installed Monday and prepared to use all week, set up the type of straight-ahead rushing attack UF had lacked in its previous four games. Despite all of UFs success in the pistol, it was a traditional I-formation run that was the most critical of the day. Vanderbilt (4-5, 1-5 SEC) was within six points of the lead and had scored on two of its last three possessions when, on third-and-1 from the UF 48-yard line, Jacoby Brissett took the snap, faked a dive to fullback Hunter Joyer and pitched the ball to Demps on his left. As the Vanderbilt defense collapsed to the middle and tight end A.C. Leonard sealed the edge, Demps faced a oneHe took a quick step to the outside and then cut in, a move so swift it dropped Vanderbilt safety Kenny Ladler to his knees. Demps sprinted uncontested the rest of the way for the score, icing Floridas reclamation win. It wasnt the prettiest, but we came out with the W, Bostic said. We needed the win. We needed to turn everything back around. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. FOOTBALL, from page 1

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Finishing StrongAfter beating Vanderbilt, does Florida have what it takes to Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Coach Mary Wise led Floridas See Story at alligatorSports.org. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Floridas defense faced an unfamiliar situation Saturday, and coach Will Muschamp wasnt pleased with how the Gators handled it. While playing with a two-score lead for much of the second half, Floridas defense was victimized by the play of Vanderbilt quarter back Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers. Vanderbilts quarterback threw for 297 yards on 19-of-28 passing. Of those yards, 220 came in the second half against a young Flor ida secondary that had not been thoroughly tested for most of the season. When you get put in those situations you still (have to) play coverage, Muschamp said. Floridas secondary struggled to do that after the break, allowing Rodgers to complete 14 of 19 attempts in the second half, including touchdown passes of 26 yards and 10 yards. The damage could have been on a few aggressive pass defenses that appeared to be obvious pass interference calls. Muschamp said afterward that he and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn continued to call plays the Gators had success with earlier in the game. But Floridas defensive backs relaxed their coverage, allowing the Commodores to effectively the game. You gotta stay aggressive, you cant worry about getting beat, Secondary exposed in second half UF ENTERED GAME AS THE MOST PENALIZED TEAM IN THE NATION. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer The Gators committed just three penalties Saturday; they also won a football game a month. Thats not a coincidence. Florida entered the game as the most penalized team in the nation with 75 total yards per game. Players said the number of mistakes and penalties the team had accrued during the four-game losing streak was a heavy emphasis in practice. Coach (Will) Muschamp, and all the coaches actually, were very keen on (not) making mistakes and dumb penalties, defensive end Earl Okine said. We worked on that an extreme amount of time during the week. In their cleanest game of the season, the Gators took advantage of the oppositions mistakes. Vanderbilt yards, including a pivotal offsides call on fourth-and-1 at the Florida 15 as the Gators down. The mistake extended the drive, which ended with a 52-yard touchdown run from Jeff Demps to put Florida up 26-14 with just more than two minutes left in the game. It was the kind of mistake the Gators made while losing four straight games in October. In order for you to learn, you have to go through it, so we did all that, defensive tackle Dominique Easley said. Gators post lowest penalty mark of season in close win JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer All the chips were falling into place for the Gators to win their 10th Southeastern Conference Tournament title. But they failed to cash them in Sunday. After recovering from an early two-goal to put away Auburn (14-6-2) as a secondonship. Auburn, the seventh seed, was the lowest seed to ever win the tournament, and a The Tigers scored the game-winner in the 64th minute when defender Julie King crossed it from the right side of the Gators Cate received the ball and shot it past keeper Taylor Burke from 8 yards out. While Cates goal put Auburn up for good, Floridas start to the game was just as costly. For the eighth time in 10 games, erson, a four-time First Team All-SEC selection, controlled the ball after a long free kick was played into the middle of the box. She kicked it through the defense from 14 yards out, just inside the left post and past a diving Burke for her seventh goal of the season. ment, I felt like we brought a really great physical presence defensively, Gators coach Becky Burleigh said. In this game, we were not able to match that. Frierson extended the lead to 2-0 in the forward Tatiana Coleman in the middle of the UF box. She shot it toward the middle fender and was redirected into the left side of the net before Burke could adjust. Burleigh said she wanted to see more of a defensive presence from her team in terms of beating the opposition to loose Florida falls to Auburn in SEC Tournament Championship Coach (Will) Muschamp, and all the coaches actually, were very keen on (not) mak ing mistakes and dumb penalties.

safety Matt Elam said. You just got to do your job. In his postgame press conference, Muschamp said he was thoroughly disappointed with how his team defended the pass late in the game and not just with the performance of the secondary. He also pointed to the play of the defensive line, which oftentimes failed to pressure Rodgers and allowed him to keep plays alive with his feet before he We dont coach them to play soft, Muschamp said. And you let them just thats not what were trying to do, thats not what were coached to do. Although he was displeased with the effort, Muschamp said the issues were very correctable for the defense, which gave up a season high in passing yards. Muschamp said the problems had more to do with a lack of exposure to those types of situations than they did with actual discipline issues, making for a good learning experience for a young defense. Just because its a two-score game with 2:12 to go in the game, that doesnt mean play soft, Muschamp said. Believe me, Monday morning at 6 oclock, were gonna learn that you cant play that way at the end of the game, that you gotta continue to play the game. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org.Burleigh: Defensive effort not up to par throughout loss to Auburnballs in their box and stepping out to block shots similar to the ones that resulted in Frier sons goals. The Gators were able to come back and tie the game an early second-half goal from forward Jillian Graff. But Burleigh said the offenses efforts were rendered moot by a lack of a defensive presence from the entire team. I dont really care who we play, Burleigh said. Its about us, and were trying to establish ourselves physically and then do what we do technically and tactically. Unfortunately, we did not do a good job of establishing ourselves physically today to win this game.

Florida hadnt lost to Vanderbilt at home since 1945. But these arent the same old Commodores or the same old Gators. UF lost each of its four October contests, killing any hope of a Southeastern Conference title. On the opening possession against Vanderbilt, Omarius Hines turned a 39-yard catch-and-run into disaster. He fumbled the ball into the end zone as he spun toward the turf, resulting in a turnover. When the Commodores and quarterback Jordan Rodgers attempted a furious comeback late in the game, pulling within 6 with 10:54 remaining, the Gators persevered. They may not be able to avoid a disappointing season, but on Saturday they at least dodged downright embarrassment. Florida (5-4, 3-4 SEC) survived multiple lategame scares to down Vanderbilt, 26-21, in The Swamp, displaying their persistence and virtually securing a postseason bowl appearance. Thats the way theyve been all year long, coach Will Muschamp said. Theyve continued Chris Rainey, Floridas leader in rushing and receiving, tested his sprained right ankle before the game but was ultimately unable to play. Jeff Demps shouldered the load, carrying UFs previously inept offense to a relieving win. Finally get to go home and go to sleep, junior running back Mike Gillislee said. I havent been sleeping so good knowing we lost. But today, we SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 9Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff Deonte Thompson (6) and Jordan Reed (center), members of UFs hands team, celebrate after corraling Vanderbilts onside kick late in Saturdays 26-21 win. Dont expect to see a plaque with Mike Gillislees inspirational words pasted on the soon. Tim Tebow, he is not. But Gillislee summed up Floridas 26-21 win against Vanderbilt as well as anyone. It was it was relief, he said. Nothing more. Just a quick smile. Many writers have talked about this win curing ills, about this team showing some life in a season that was once considered lifeless. No. Its still dead. So much of this game is measured by expectations, and Florida has already fallen well short of its own. The Gators always, always expect to compete on the biggest stage. But now, for the last month of the season, Florida is not Florida. Players dont choose Gainesville so they can eastern Conference East. They dont envision celebrating a six-win season, partying because they stamped their tickets to the BBVA Compass Bowl or some other irrelevant destination. The Gators cant challenge the big boys. Instead, November is about saving face, about maintaining whatever pride is left, about feeling relieved. And more importantly, November is about next year. Its about building momentum going into the offseason and spring practices and training camp. Its about convincing someone you can one day be a champion, even if that someone is only your-SEE TYLER, PAGE 9Gators fend off late comeback, Win brings joy, but UF still a letdown in Tyler Jetttwitter: @tyler__jett

MINA RADMAN and RACHEL ROWAN ORGANIZERS ESTIMATE ABOUT 27,000 ATTENDED. CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterAbout 27,000 students, alumni and Gator fans poured on Friday night for the annual Gator Growl pep rally. About 10,000 to 20,000 of them tried to get into the stadium around the same time, University Police Department Sgt. Mike Metz said. He said 100 to 200 people tried to slam through each gate. Gator Growl Director of Public Relations Cait Feroleto said part of the issue was that much of the audience arrived just before 7 p.m., when the show was scheduled to start. Most students had tickets that were for general admission, but some audience members had assigned seats. Daniella Cortes, a 20-yearold public relations junior, and David Armas, a 20-yearold advertising junior, were in their seats for an hour and a half until they left to use the bathroom. When they came back, security guards told them they had to relocate because they were sitting in a reserved block. The thing is, when I bought my ticket, they said I could sit anywhere, Armas said. Gator Growl Producer Aaron Heger said moving the stage from the north end zone to the student section of the stadium changed the seating arrangements. Audience seating ran from one end zone to the other on the alumni side of the stadium on Friday. In past years, the audience was split between the student and alumni bleachers. Hiccups will happen sometimes with major changes, Heger said. He said Growl was slightly understaffed with ushers, which contributed to the seating confusion. He estimated that 27,000 people attended the pep rally, available at press time. Feroleto said this was the sion seating. Next year, well probably plan the seating a little better, maybe go back to assigned seating with blocks and stuff.Seating changes cause confusion at Growl DAVID WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterFor some, running a half marathon seems nothing short of impossible. The Tom Walker Memorial Half Marathon, geared to help all types of runners develop healthy lifestyles, attempts to change that perception. The half marathon, hosted by the Florida Track Club, is scheduled for Saturday at 8 a.m. at Boulware Springs Park in Gainesville. The most important part is to have a race where participants can feel like they have accomplished something, said Mark Ou, the race coordinator for the Florida Track Club. If you work hard at something like running, you never know what else you can accomplish. The Florida Track Clubs goal is to give runners, experienced and otherwise, the opportunity to cultivate healthy habits that will be seen in both running and the rest of their lives, Ou said. Running is the cheapest, easiest thing you can do to stay in shape and to stay busy, he said. John Culver, a 21-year-old environmental science senior, ran the half marathon in 2009 and placed among the top runners. Its not so much about running a whole bunch of miles on your own that is exhilarating, but its hanging out with your friends for an hour and a half in the morning and challenging yourself, he said. He said that as a college student, running is important as both a stress reliever and a way to stay focused. Ive memorized more organic chemistry structures in my head while running than I have any other time, Culver said. They may not be right, but I memorized them. because it gives runners an opportunity to focus on the racing experience, not the courses technical aspects, Culver said. Early registration for the half marathon is $25 for track club members and $30 for non-members until Nov. 8.Half marathon encourages healthy living If you work hard at something like running, you never know what else you can accomplish.Mark Ourace coordinator for the Florida Track Club

Jared Dauth, 21, and Maya Mansuer, 23, were spotted trespassing at a construction site for a federal courthouse in Jacksonville during the Florida-Georgia weekend, according to reports. But it wasnt their property violation that warranted attention from the media. The students, after having a few drinks, apparently decided they needed to get to know one another better. Who knows? Perhaps they met at the game and needed some privacy to explore their feelings. So, they climbed the fence at the construction site and proceeded to confess their newfound love for each other all over a nearby picnic table, taking the phrase eating out to a whole new level. OK, well get to the point. They were naked and having sex. Someone spotted them, reported it to authorities and now they are facing charges for trespassing and indecent exposure. Come on, people! Have some common sense. Yes, the Florida-Georgia game is the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, but not in the way that these students interpreted it. UF not only lost the game that weekend, it also lost a few class points. For one thing, dont have sex in public. Dont do it. Yes, alcohol impairs your judgment, but getting a no-tell motel If this is too hard of a principle for you to wrap your brain around, maybe you either shouldnt drink, or you could tattoo Dont have sex in public on your forearm. Thats classi er than actually engaging in the act. For another thing, dont trespass, and especially dont trespass on state or federal property to perform your dirty deeds. Do you really want to have a felony trespassing charge for doing the nasty? One would hope that college-aged individuals, especially those over the age of 21, would be able to control their carnal urges. Clearly, this wasnt the case. Everyone has crazy stories from college, but something about remember the time we were caught butt-naked having sex at the construction site for the new federal courthouse during the Florida-Georgia game doesnt have the nostalgic ring to it like other crazy college stories. Let these two individuals serve as an example of what not to do while representing UF students anywhere and everywhere.Students overcrowd anthropology departmentGov. Rick Scott clearly touched a nerve a few weeks ago when he bashed anthropology majors, saying he thought we had too many. The local responses were furious. While I disagree with his implied premise that a liberal arts education is not as valuable as a STEM education, we really do have too many anthropology majors. First, discussing anthropology is just a metaphor for the larger problem regarding how students select their majors in college. Anthropology is an incredibly important discipline. I have many friends who I am convinced will use what they learned in their anthropology coursework here at UF to change the world for the better. I am not attacking the subject itself, which is how I think many people construed the governors comments. However, we have 634 anthropology majors this fall at UF. There is no way even 10 percent of these students ing wage coming out. Its clear from talking with friends that the major can be tough if you apply yourself and do research, but it can also be unbelievably easy if you coast, which is what a good number of people are doing. I know people who majored in psychology and English who are having a really tough time right now in the job market. This is partly due to the reputation these majors have because of the less serious students who choose them. If you are not sure about what to major in, please dont major in psychology. There are countless other departments that teach you interesting things that might give you a good GPA if you look hard enough. Geology, physics, geography, chemistry and the foreign languages are all areas that have the capacity for more students. I think there is a herd mentality in college where you want to major in the same discipline as your friends, and this is a detriment to everyone. I came to UF and majored in political science. While I think it is a valuable major, it was a very large one. I decided to look around more and found the statistics and econom ics departments, which have been more than 1,400 psychology majors, there is clearly a problem at UF. I cant really blame the governor for asking a serious question: Why should the state give funding for students to study a subject when the data suggests they are not as able to get jobs as others? I think the answer is to encourage people who want to be anthropologists to study anthropology. If you are really reason to study the subject, as long as you are willing to participate in internships and extracurricular activities to prepare yourself for the job market. I dont have the answers, but perhaps the professors in these overcrowded departments could raise the grading standards. This would discourage all but the most serious students from studying these disciplines. There would be an incentive to shop more heavily for whats truly interesting to a student. certainly cheaper ways to do it. The state government should not force people to change their majors, but they should absolutely provide incentives for people to study subjects they view as critical to the state. As long as UF receives state money, the state of Florida should have a say in how the institution is educating students. If you want an easy major and dont want to work hard, give those students who want to be psychologists or anthropologists a break by not overcrowding their classes. Go to the business college.

Weve entered a new age where cou company ever, Groupon merges Internet retail conscious customers discounts for everyday products and services. But, to a handful of wary merchants, this is too good to be true. Originally hailed as the savior of small business, Groupon represents a machine that could cause the death of the in dustry. The Et tu, Brute? of it all is that weve seen this story before: The fundamental me chanics behind the Groupon business model share a striking similarity to those of the sub prime mortgage industry. To make sure were on the same page, thats not good. Groupons business model is nothing short of fascinating. Groupon is a daily deals site for a variety of businesses. Millions of users re ceive emails about daily deals, featuring prod opt in for these deals, and once a threshold is reached, The deal is on. Thanks to the com mitted buying power of large groups, Grou pon is able to offer discounts between 50 and 90 percent. Why would any merchant offer their prod ucts at unrecoverable low prices? Advertising. In theory, these heavy discounts lure in an un get them into the store and ultimately convert for struggling local businesses, where imme diate cash needs and a desire for new custom ers are high on their lists. repeat business and Groupon, all the while, gets a piece of the action. Unfortunately, its a The average Groupon is 50 percent off a business just eliminated half its revenue. From there, Groupon pockets half of those sales just for just being Groupon, so what looks like 50 percent is actually only 25 percent for the retailer. Take this to the next level: Groupon third. An item that normally goes for $50 ul timately returns under $13 for any given busi ness, spread unevenly over a quarter of a year. Long story short: Businesses working with Groupon are being sold an advertising cam paign that resembles a very, very expensive loan. With a Groupon, the business is given a small amount of cash over three months from the coupon sales from Groupon, and in exchange, businesses must sell customers tre mendously undercut products.

And worst of all, the goal that makes it worth it for businesses to target new repeatable sales lacks any substance. er loyal market, but the reality is that Groupon buyers arent actually any of those promised loyal consumers.

A keen look into the Groupon model re subprime mortgage industry. Replace busi ness with mortgage bearers, Groupon consumer with subprime mortgage inves tor and Groupon with security issuer, and it suddenly becomes an analogy for debt parties. Sure, I could probably create analo gies between the yogurt industry and Ponzi schemes if I wanted to, but the main point is to illustrate what happens when the Groupon ecosystem crumbles. It all comes down to the weakest link, which in this case is the strug gling local businesses that are resorting to advertisements. What happens if they go out of business because of the Groupon? What happens if they anticipate bankruptcy and refuse Groupons halfway through? In both cases, businesses and customers lose. And, make a claim against their purchase. Because Groupons, rebating these customers would Slowly but surely, a machine too big to fail can suffer from the same incremental micro events that occurred during the housing crisis, col lapsing Groupon and bankrupting thousands of small businesses whose Groupon account receivables well exceed their almost nonexis tent cash balances. Rational people would never submit to this. But thousands of struggling businesses are doing so in record droves. You cant fault them. Millions of consumers are buying Grou pons because theyre worth it, building un precedented buzz that small business owners have no reason to question. Until now.

8, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff Writer The Obama administration has denied an online petition with more than 70,000 supporters calling for the legalization of marijuana. Jordan Shepherd, a 19-year-old psychology junior, said the White Houses response hasnt hurt the movement toward legalization. Rather, it has done the opposite. I think by actually completely ignoring the movement, hes made it stronger, said Shepherd, president of the UF chapter of NORML, a national organization that aims to repeal marijuana prohibition. The petition, Legalize and Regulate Marijuana in a Manner Similar to Alcohol, has 74,169 signatures. It is one of eight marijuanarelated petitions the White House responded to on its We the People website. Online petitions need 25,000 signatures within 30 days to elicit a response from the administration. National Drug Control Policy, wrote the response to the marijuana petitions. Shepherd said he was surprised the administration chose Kerlikowske to respond. Its legally written in his job description that he is forced to oppose legalization, he said. Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 1998, Kerlikowskes responsibilities as director include taking any actions necessary to oppose the legalization of certain controlled substances, including marijuana. He wrote that, according to the National Institutes of Health, marijuana use is associated with cognitive impairment, addiction and respiratory disease. Kerlikowske also wrote the administration is interested in researching the drugs potential medical uses, but that the Food and Drug Administration and the Institute of Medicine have not found that smoked marijuana meets standards for safe and effective medicine. Following the White Houses response, similar petitions have surfaced. One, titled Respond to the Marijuana Legalization Petition with an Argument that Doesnt Also Apply to Alcohol, was created on Oct. 28 and had 4,389 signatures Sunday. Despite the petitions, UF political science professor Albert Matheny wrote in an email that the issue probably wont be a main concern among politicians for a while. I think its one of those third rail issues that no mainstream politician is ever going to touch, he wrote, since the people who want it can get as much as they want, and the people who dont want it are at least symbolically they dont work. Students rally for legal marijuanaRESEARCH SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Contributing WriterUF researchers are developing a potential one-time gene therapy treatment for osteoarthritis, a chronic joint disease. The National Institutes of Healths National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases awarded a one-year $900,000 grant to UF researchers to continue their laboratory studies of osteoarthritis gene therapy in horses. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, is a condition in which cartilage in the joints wears away, causing bare bones to rub against each other. Currently, there is no cure for the condition. Though people can take pain medication for temporarily relief, over time they will lose mobility, said Dr. Steven Ghivizzani, the principal investigator and a professor of orthopaedics and rehabilitation in the UF College of Medicine. About 27 million Americans age 25 and older have osteoarthritis, according to the National Institutes of Health. The human body is capable of making cesses, but in an osteoarthritis patient the proteins break down too quickly to stop the degeneration. UF researchers are taking these genes that block the disease and delivering them into the cells at high levels, Ghivizzani said. Ghivizzani is working with the UF College of Veterinary Medicine to develop this gene therapy in horses. The therapy will deliver genetic material and produce a therapeutic protein at the site of the disease. Horses joints are mechanically similar to human joints, said Patrick Colahan, a College of Veterinary Medicine and coinvestigator of the study. Horses have a very big problem with osteoarthritis, Colahan said. They are the most athletic of the domestic animals. Rachael Watson, the studys postdoctoral associate, deals with the projects daily operations. Watson makes the virus and evaluates how well the therapeutic protein works in the horses. The results have been promising so far, she said. Scientists search for cure for osteoarthritis in horse jointsKerlikowske Horses have a very big problem with osteoarthritis.

self. Florida needed to beat Vanderbilt to prove that it could actually win again, that it could maybe be Florida again sometime soon. Thats why every Gators player, coach and fan let out a collective sigh of relief when Jordan Reed snagged Vanderbilts onside kick to preserve the win. If Reed doesnt hold on to the ball, or if Vanderbilt doesnt bail out Florida with a pass interference on its last drive, or if Commodores defensive tackle Rob Lohr doesnt jump offside on a fourth-and-1, or if the refer ees dont ignore a blatant pass interference by DeAnte Saunders on a third-and-8 on the previous drive, Vanderbilt wins Saturday. By the end of the fourth quarter, UFs cornerbacks with 297 passing yards and three total touchdowns.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9 Dana Burke / Alligator StaffFlorida running back Jeff Demps celebrates after scoring on a 52-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter Saturday. TYLER, from page 1Demps rushes for career-high 158, 2 TDsDefensive tackle Dominique Easley said the Gators got a monkey off their back. Safety Matt Elam, defensive end Earl Okine and linebacker Jon Bostic called the mood in the Gators locker room ecstatic, regardless of the mediocre results this season. It was crazy, Bostic said. Everybody was ready to get that W. We went out there and got it. The key to Floridas success was a renewed running game. After rushing for 175 yards in October, the Gators churned out 197 against the Commodores. Demps was limited by an ankle injury throughout the month, rushing a combined 13 times for 16 yards. On Saturday, he carried the ball 23 times for 158 yards and two touchdowns, displaying his all-world speed. With senior quarterback John Brantleys ankle injury keeping him from taking snaps under center, the Gators resorted to the pistol formation. The new look, which the Gators installed Monday and prepared to use all week, set up the type of straight-ahead rushing attack UF had lacked in its previous four games. Despite all of UFs success in the pistol, it was a traditional I-formation run that was the most critical of the day. Vanderbilt (4-5, 1-5 SEC) was within six points of the lead and had scored on two of its last three possessions when, on third-and-1 from the UF 48-yard line, Jacoby Brissett took the snap, faked a dive to fullback Hunter Joyer and pitched the ball to Demps on his left. As the Vanderbilt defense collapsed to the middle and tight end A.C. Leonard sealed the edge, Demps faced a oneHe took a quick step to the outside and then cut in, a move so swift it dropped Vanderbilt safety Kenny Ladler to his knees. Demps sprinted uncontested the rest of the way for the score, icing Floridas reclamation win. It wasnt the prettiest, but we came out with the W, Bostic said. We needed the win.

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 Muschamp not ready to say discipline problems are overDuring the week leading up to the game, Muschamp said it was tough to discipline players for mistakes in practice because of a lack of depth. But Okine credited Muschamps approach in practice this week as a catalyst for the improvement. Coach made an emphasis on keeping positive and staying together, he said. He wanted to make sure nobody was having feelings like the season is over, and nobody feels that way on the team now. were penalty-free, a welcome change loss to Georgia and 22 combined in the three losses prior, including 12 for 90 yards against LSU.

We were back behind the wall, and theres only one thing you can do, The three penalties Saturday against Vanderbilt was the teams best showing this season. But, after the game, Muschamp was not ready to declare the problem solved. This is one game. Im not ready in say) that were disciplined now, he said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Finishing StrongAfter beating Vanderbilt, does Florida have what it takes to Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Coach Mary Wise led Floridas See Story at alligatorSports.org. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Floridas defense faced an unfamiliar situation Saturday, and coach Will Muschamp wasnt pleased with how the Gators handled it. While playing with a two-score lead for much of the second half, Floridas defense was victimized by the play of Vanderbilt quarter back Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers. Vanderbilts quarterback threw for 297 yards on 19-of-28 passing. Of those yards, 220 came in the second half against a young Flor ida secondary that had not been thoroughly tested for most of the season. When you get put in those situations you still (have to) play coverage, Muschamp said. Floridas secondary struggled to do that after the break, allowing Rodgers to complete 14 of 19 attempts in the second half, including touchdown passes of 26 yards and 10 yards. The damage could have been on a few aggressive pass defenses that appeared to be obvious pass interference calls. Muschamp said afterward that he and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn continued to call plays the Gators had success with earlier in the game. But Floridas defensive backs relaxed their coverage, allowing the Commodores to effectively the game. You gotta stay aggressive, you cant worry about getting beat, Secondary exposed in second half UF ENTERED GAME AS THE MOST PENALIZED TEAM IN THE NATION. MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer The Gators committed just three penalties Saturday; they also won a football game a month. Thats not a coincidence. Florida entered the game as the most penalized team in the nation with 75 total yards per game. Players said the number of mistakes and penalties the team had accrued during the four-game losing streak was a heavy emphasis in practice. Coach (Will) Muschamp, and all the coaches actually, were very keen on (not) making mistakes and dumb penalties, defensive end Earl Okine said. We worked on that an extreme amount of time during the week. In their cleanest game of the season, the Gators took advantage of the oppositions mistakes. Vanderbilt yards, including a pivotal offsides call on fourth-and-1 at the Florida 15 as the Gators down. The mistake extended the drive, which ended with a 52-yard touchdown run from Jeff Demps to put Florida up 26-14 with just more than two minutes left in the game. It was the kind of mistake the Gators made while losing four straight games in October. In order for you to learn, you have to go through it, so we did all that, defensive tackle Dominique Easley said. Gators post lowest penalty mark of season in close win JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer All the chips were falling into place for the Gators to win their 10th Southeastern Conference Tournament title. But they failed to cash them in Sunday. After recovering from an early two-goal to put away Auburn (14-6-2) as a secondonship. Auburn, the seventh seed, was the lowest seed to ever win the tournament, and a The Tigers scored the game-winner in the 64th minute when defender Julie King crossed it from the right side of the Gators Cate received the ball and shot it past keeper Taylor Burke from 8 yards out. While Cates goal put Auburn up for good, Floridas start to the game was just as costly. For the eighth time in 10 games, erson, a four-time First Team All-SEC selection, controlled the ball after a long free kick was played into the middle of the box. She kicked it through the defense from 14 yards out, just inside the left post and past a diving Burke for her seventh goal of the season. ment, I felt like we brought a really great physical presence defensively, Gators coach Becky Burleigh said. In this game, we were not able to match that. Frierson extended the lead to 2-0 in the forward Tatiana Coleman in the middle of the UF box. She shot it toward the middle fender and was redirected into the left side of the net before Burke could adjust. Burleigh said she wanted to see more of a defensive presence from her team in terms of beating the opposition to loose Florida falls to Auburn in SEC Tournament Championship Coach (Will) Muschamp, and all the coaches actually, were very keen on (not) mak ing mistakes and dumb penalties.

safety Matt Elam said. You just got to do your job. In his postgame press conference, Muschamp said he was thoroughly disappointed with how his team defended the pass late in the game and not just with the performance of the secondary. He also pointed to the play of the defensive line, which oftentimes failed to pressure Rodgers and allowed him to keep plays alive with his feet before he We dont coach them to play soft, Muschamp said. And you let them just thats not what were trying to do, thats not what were coached to do. Although he was displeased with the effort, Muschamp said the issues were very correctable for the defense, which gave up a season high in passing yards. Muschamp said the problems had more to do with a lack of exposure to those types of situations than they did with actual discipline issues, making for a good learning experience for a young defense. Just because its a two-score game with 2:12 to go in the game, that doesnt mean play soft, Muschamp said. Believe me, Monday morning at 6 oclock, were gonna learn that you cant play that way at the end of the game, that you gotta continue to play the game. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org.Burleigh: Defensive effort not up to par throughout loss to Auburnballs in their box and stepping out to block shots similar to the ones that resulted in Frier sons goals. The Gators were able to come back and tie the game an early second-half goal from forward Jillian Graff. But Burleigh said the offenses efforts were rendered moot by a lack of a defensive presence from the entire team. I dont really care who we play, Burleigh said. Its about us, and were trying to establish ourselves physically and then do what we do technically and tactically. Unfortunately, we did not do a good job of establishing ourselves physically today to win this game.
