ADMINISTRATION ERIN JESTER Alligator Writer The Florida Board of Governors recommended Wednesday that UF rework its proposal to expand its dental program with Florida A&M University and return with a less costly proposal in January. The Board, which was expected to vote on the proposal Wednesday, expressed support for the collaboration between the two schools, but several members balked at the proposed costs, which amount to $6 million in recurring funds by the programs fourth year. UF and FAMUs proposal aimed to increase the number of dentists in Floridas rural and under-served areas and increase diversity of dental students by expanding UFs program by 48 students over the course of four years. UF has requested an initial $2.2 million for renovations to the dental science building. Some members voiced concerns about the cost to the state of each new dental student under the expansion. UF President Bernie Machen countered that intense programs such as dental medicine have always cost more than others. Board member Dean Colson reminded fellow members there is a problem with the lack of dentists practicing in under-served and rural areas of the state. I think it would be a worthwhile expenditure, he said. The Board agreed to move the discussion out of the Strategic Planning Committee and hear a revised proposal with the entire Board of Governors at its next meeting in January. The University of Central Florida on Tuesday withdrew its proposal for its own dental college. Although this innovative project does not require state appropriations, we are not moving forward at this time, UCF spokesman Grant Heston said in a statement. We look forward to continuing to work on this project in the future. Board of Governors calls for cheaper dental school plans THE SG-FUNDED GROUP WAS SUPPOSED TO HAND OUT FLIERS BY THIS MONTH. MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Staff Writer Santa Fe Colleges task force against sexual harassment is preparing to tackle the issue of catcalls, but initiatives may not see light until December. Ashleigh Bennett, chair of the task force and Student Government vice president, said it plans to host an awareness event in February and to set up an incident phone and email hotline. In October, Bennett said she hoped to see the task force handing ber. That time line has been pushed back to December. Bennett said it will probably be mostly funded by Student Government. The task force must submit a proposal to SG before it can get funding, but Bennett said she anticipates a budget between $1,000 and $4,000. Students are taking the lead with the task force, which was formed in October, because college administration wants to take a peer-to-peer approach, Bennett said. Federal and state laws about sexual harassment include provisions requiring schools to maintain their own sexual harassment policies. If a student is caught in an act of verbal harassment, Bennett said, the college advisement department will decide the punishment. If its physical harassment, the college police could get involved. Ed Book, SFC police chief, said his department will be following SGs lead. He said the police department would be involved, but he wasnt sure what the extent of that involvement would be. The task force was founded after a SFC professor brought the issue of catcalling to SG in October. Bennett AMANDA COHEN Alligator Contributing Writer The Asian American Student Union and Pride Student Union joined forces Wednesday evening in Ustler Hall to share the experiences people with dual-minority identity face. Its really hard to bridge the gap between being queer and especially because API parents bring up their children with such strict gender binaries, said Andy Sun, a 19-year-old economics sophomore. Sun, along with three other panelists, participated in LGBT Stories: Queer in Asian America, which was part of the 18th annual Asian Kaleidoscope Month. Keynote speaker Pauline Park, chair of the New York Association for Gender Rights Adcommunities requires recognizing diversity. The point is not to bring together people who share a common identity but who share a common oppression, said Park, 51. Sun said he has to maintain a certain standard around his family, not cutting his hair too short and not discussing his sex life.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 SAFETY EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterAbout half of all seventh through 12th grade students reported that they were sexually harassed during the last school year. According to a report released Monday by the American Association of University Women, of 1,965 students surveyed across the country, 56 percent of girls and 40 percent of boys said they had been sexually harassed. Of those respondents, 87 percent said the harassment had a negative impact on them. sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. This includes actions like making sexual jokes or gestures, creating or displaying sexually explicit images, and inappropriate touching or requests. The majority of respondents who said they had experienced sexual harassment said it was verbal. Thirty-three percent of students said others had made unwelcome sexual comments, gestures or jokes to them, and 18 per cent said they had been called gay or lesbian in a negative way. Two percent of students said they had been forced to perform sexual acts. Phyllis Erney, a guidance counselor at Kasex-related issues start to occur when students enter seventh grade. When they move up from sixth to seventh grade, their hormones start kicking in and they start paying attention to the opposite sex, she said. We end up with a lot more drama and we start to have boy-girl issues. As a result, Kanapaha Middle counselors gave seventh grade classrooms counseling sessions this week on sexual harassment, teachand hurting. Erney said counselors encourage students to talk to a trusted adult or to see a counselor if they are being harassed. According to the study, only about 9 per cent of students who said they had been haincident. Pamela Garcia, a guidance counselor at Santa Fe High School, said there were three reported incidents of sexual harassment dur year at Santa Fe. Last year, there were four. This year, there werent any. Garcia said she thinks online harassment is becoming more prevalent a trend that is Though 44 percent of students said they experienced harassment in school, about a third said they were harassed online, via pictures, texts, Facebook messages or rumors that were spread. Catherine Hill, co-author of the study, said online harassment can be particularly troubling for students. E-harassment is invisible to others, she said. Its very invasive. It can be 24/7. Its hard for teachers and parents to know whats going on. Students who said they had been sexually harassed said they often didnt want to go to school, felt sick to their stomach and had trouble studying or sleeping. [Sexual harassment] can be a challenging topic to talk about, Hill said. Its much more comfortable to talk about bullying. But this is a question of how students are treating each other in schools that is incredibly important for us to address.Study finds that sexual harassment common for teenagers This is a question of how students are treating each other in schools that is incredibly important for us to address.Catherine Hillco-author of the study

AUBREY PRIMERAlligator Contributing WriterAustin Cooley and Niko Ralf word quilt. For Cooley, 25, and Cunningham, 34, starting a social media platform to account for the gray area present within popular social networking websites made sense. We dont think were just another Facebook, said Cooley, who graduated from UF in 2008 with a bachelors degree in computer engineering. Cooley, along with Cunningham and Shane Mooney, co-found graduated from UF in 2008 with a bachelors degree in computer science, founded Quillt about six months ago. Quillt integrates the utilities of text messaging, sending videos and sharing photographs on a social platform similar to a private news feed. The platform allows users to connect privately with the people they care most about, Cooley said. Cooley and Cunningham came to Gainesville this week to launch the application, which currently is available only to UF email address holders. UF felt like home, Cooley said. Cunningham, who graduated from Columbia University in 2009 with a bachelors degree in economics and from Harvard University in 2010 with a masters in technology and innovation, said having the launch in Gainesville made perfect sense. Wednesday night, they hosted a local launch party at The Swamp Restaurant. urday, Quillt has accumulated a waiting list of more than 600 people. Users who join the application must have friends who already are using it. However, Cunningham said new users might be admitted in waves. Cooley spoke about starting Quillt and the applications future to about 15 UF students on Wednesday. I think what got me to this point is constant, constant, constant hard work and never giving up, Cooley said. The stitching of Quillt began with the Kauffman Labs Education Ventures Program. The program selected 23 entrepreneurs with education-centered endeavors from a competitive pool of 1,000 people. Cooley presented a business plan promoting Youtorial, a software-training platform, and Cunninghams plan focused on the connection of high school students with college mentors in their proWhen participants were told they would be given living assignments, Cunningham requested to live with Cooley. The two didnt know each other yet, but someone Cunningham met prior to the program told him he should keep an eye on Cooley. Each of them had different attributes that we observed that have worked well together, said Sandy Miller, director of Kauffman Labs for Enterprise Creation. presented ForgetWeNot, Quillts prototype, to Miller and the rest of the Kauffman Labs Education Ventures Program. I just loved it, Miller said. I thought it was really special it would be appealing to people in many different contexts. Quillts four interfaces, Apps for iPhone, Android, SMS and web, were developed on a shoestring budget. Constructing the applications multiple platforms cost about $100,000, Cunningham said. So far, Quillt has raised about $250,000. Right now, building the product, we have been blessed, Cunningham said. Similar established social media websites are worth anywhere from $40 million to $100 million, and Cooley and Cunningham aspire to be among them. With about 20 employees, Coolstaff is being paid at an hourly rate of about $8. This shows the convic tions of the Quillt staff and their belief in the product, Cooley and Cunningham said. Quillts group of investors and advisers, including Facebook cofounder Andrew McCollum, has provided a council of experienced and driven individuals to help feed Quillts potential. My impression [of Cooley and Cunningham] was that they were really kind of dynamic and charismatic, said Randy Scott, Quillt investor and entrepreneur. They had passion for what they were doing and they seemed like they could be really resourceful. David Whitney, investor in Quillt and entrepreneur in residence of the UF College of Engineering, said he thinks Quillt will be gamechanging. that Facebook creates, Whitney said. With trends in private sharing becoming more apparent, competition among social networks for mind space and users is growing. I think private sharing is a problem that is not yet solved, said Rich Pearson, vice president of marketing for Posterous, an online publishing platform with initiatives similar to those of Quillts. The ability to connect with your friends, privately, from anywhere you are is what were hugely trying to solve, he said. Pearson said that based on the numbers he is seeing, companies pursuing solutions to this problem are going to do well. Cooley said Quillts business model is to connect and engage users on an intimate level. Its about preserving memo ries, Cooley said.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Bus Drivers Union offers condolences to injured biker On behalf of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1579, I would like to express our condolences to Mr. Abdellatief and his family for the trauma and injuries he has suffered and express our wishes for his full recovery. Mary Frances Folz Donahue President, ATU 1579 Unite dominates SG, kills bills promoting democracy This past summer, when many students were gone studying abroad, doing internships and relaxing at home, the Unite Party was busy pushing through corrupt, tyrannical legislation. One of the most corrupt changes it made was adding the ability to kill any bill based on its implication, a virtually meaningless term that the minority argued gave Unite the ability to kill bills it didnt like before the Student Senate got to vote on them. Thats exactly what this change has done. Since the Fall election, the Unite Party has already killed three bills in one meeting before the public got a chance to see them. One was from a senator utilizing his right to express his religious freedom, something that should never be silenced and certainly not silenced in an obscure committee meeting. Unite killed a bill that tried to make the majority-ruled Senate Executive Committee, composed of seven Unite chairmen, acknowledge the voices anny, Unite killed a bill to make the position of parliamentarian non-partisan, despite the fact that the current parliamentarian, a supposedly unbiased voice, managed campaign materials for Unite in the fall. Unite is not merely content with its supermajority control, it demands total, one-party domination and is doing everything within its power to crush the minority voice of the Senate. It ignores not only minority senators, but also their constituents students at this university. Unites message is clear: If you do not agree with it, your opinion will not be heard. This is unscrupulous, undemocratic and un-American. Unite and its leaders should be ashamed by their blatant disregard for basic democratic rights. Carly Wilson UF SG Senator Students Party Communications Director S words to be Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow. This sentiment caused a stir as everyone What was he experiencing? Is the light at the end of the tunnel deserving of such language? Perhaps Jobs, being the incredible showman he was, was well aware of the media frenzy that would follow his death. He knew his death would be monitored as the iPad 2 launch was a few months prior, and he wanted to leave the world guessing. I, somehow, have a hard time believing that. The recently published transcript of his eulogy given by his sister, Mona Simpson, illuminates the man behind the acid-washed jeans and black mock turtlenecks. Though he built up a company whose stock is about as successful as one can be, Jobs tried to stay grounded. Despite his fame, the words of his sister portray him deeper than the man who graced the cover of Time magazine eight times. Final words are distinctly different from what graces someones epitaph. Unless our will is exwords that the world remembers you by. Final words come directly from the deceased persons themselves. The afterlife, death, the mortality of human existence. Humans are obsessed with death. But Beauty will fail, your hair will thin, but words live on forever. Shakespeare knew words could live longer than he ever could. The bard has been dead for almost 400 years but most high school graduates will have read something he penned. Hes part of our collective memory. men can breathe or eyes can see, / So long lives this and this gives life to thee. It could be read as beauty always being present in the youth, but upon a close reading, we realize As long as men can see the print or someone is able to recite the poem, the sonnet is alive. Words are what give humans immortality; our novels live forever in the Library of Congress, and our blog posts will forever haunt the intern on servers hidden away in dark basements. Final words are that last part of a person we can hold on to, that part of themselves they created. Think different, Apples trademark slogan, is of Jobs last words will stay with us. We lost an amazing innovator last month; a man who truly changed the way we talk about technology and integrate it into our lives. His legacy is a great one, but he left us with a new view on the end of our lives: Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow. Francesca Morizio is a columnist for The Eagle at American University. Final words live on after death UWire What is the role of government? That is a question we need to be asking more often. Today, the government ignores the Constitution and decides what areas it wants to intrude into. One of these areas is entitlements, and the problem keeps growing. The role of the U.S. government was not to give people a retirement, provide medical care, give money to the unemployed, help people sell their houses, give out student loans or bail out businesses. This entitlement system is unsustainable, and its because the government decided to give a certain group of people money because it became corrupt. The government is a monopoly. There isnt another government to compete with it. So, when you decide to allow the government to give out money from taxpayers to certain people, you get a bureaucracy. Today the entitlement program has caused many of our current economic issues. This whole idea that the government is responsible for your well-being started after the Great Depression and Franklin Roosevelts New Deal. He started social security, subsidies and increased taxes. We have been taught that FDR saved the economy and got us out of the Great Depression, but I would argue that is not the case. So what should the role of government be? How about to ensure your right to provide for you and your family and not let someone or something else infringe on your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Lets start taking responsibility for ourselves instead of asking the government to take care of us. That will help solve some of our economic issues we are currently facing. You want a happier life? Do what Ben Franklin did and go get it yourself instead of asking the government to. Cory Thomas is a columnist for The Nevada Sagebrush at the University of Nevada.

He SaysHe said, she said: Whats a healthy amount of jealousy?Im going to come right out and say it Im a hypocrite when it comes to jealousy. I tell friends anger and trust their partners. Yet, when I see a guy whos better looking, richer or more suave than me talking to my girlfriend, I immediately throw on the death stare. If this sounds like you, dont feel bad. Its hard to practice what you preach when it comes to jealousy. Ive also had to sit at home while an ex-girlfriend got lunch with a guy friend or stood alone at the bar while my girl got chatted up by some rando who doesnt know shes taken. Its annoying as hell, yes, but it doesnt merit jealous feelings. Honestly, what could actually result from these situations? Your partner isnt going to fall in love with his or her friend after one lunch date. You have to convince yourself that the emotions just arent worth the trouble. However, if your boyfriend or girlfriend begins to hang out with this friend all the time, if they ner starts to put him or her ahead of you, then you have some solid reasons to get upset. Actions like these raise suspicions and put your relationship in jeopardy. Being a couple means putting each other before anyone else. If this isnt happening, then by all means JACOB ROMOSER Once upon a time in the land of Everything is Awesome, there lived a girl who was completely secure. She only felt happiness for those who were more successful than her and utmost appreciation for all of the positive things in her life. There was no need to complain, feel inadequate or belittle anyone else. She was completely at peace. Get real. I recently had a phone conver sation with one of my exes. Keith T., now a 30-year-old photographer and art teacher living in Brooklyn, is a guy I had dated and lived with for almost two years while enduring New York City during my early 20s. Despite a rather exasper ating breakup, Keith and I have remained kosher during the years with sporadic hangouts, emails, etc. Now when bringing up this old divides Keith and I: our stances in a previous column, I bat for team cheating-is-a-deal-breaker, while Keiths view is a bit more lenient. Bottom line: We agree to disagree, and, like any other friend, he and I also talk culture, politics and sex. Having never met or even heard about my current boyfriend, Keith asked about my relationship. I told him that the beau travels frequently with his job, a career that elicits a unanimous eyebrow raise from the general population in terms of sex-capades. While I do trust my boyfriend and calmly address with him any rare concerns I might have, I also admit that this scenario notoriously tests presumptions. Keiths reaction? You just need to not be jealous. Jealousy. Its a demon of a word. How is it that in an instant, a persons connothing but ones competitive and vulnerable insecurities? Is a jealous reaction a sign of weakness, or is it an intuitive response to a real problem? The answer really doesnt matter. I actually agree with Keith, for I know the only per son who can establish well-being is myself. As a result, I seek the zen of Everything is Awesome. KAY BEA She Says SAPHIRA LAZARREAvenue WriterA hot commodity in the smartphone world, the iPhone 4S is losing its cool when it comes to battery life. Many users of the phone and the iOS 5 update say they have seen dramatic decreases in the longevity of the phones battery, according to a Computer World article. Since its mid-October release, the iPhone 4S has made many consumers glad they are Team Apple. However, some users blame the phones excessive application additions and updated operating system for a decline in its battery performance. Customers have vented to fellow users about their dissatisfaction with the iPhones battery life on the Apple Support Communities website. The thread, titled iPhone 4S Battery Life? has more than 3,700 posts. However, health science freshman Audi Mendez, I have noticed that the battery drains a little quicker, Mendez said, but its worth the updates that the phone has. Mendez owns the iPhone 4 but has the iOS 5 update, which some customers believe is the cause of the battery drain. New to iPhone and Apple smartphone services, Jenna Blechman, 22, said she has yet to experience issues with the phone or its battery life. The psychology senior recently purchased the iPhone 4S and said she was more than excited when she heard the phone became available to Sprint carriers. I believe it lives up to the hype, Blechman said. The speed of the [operating system] and the phones ability to do so many things at once is great. The only tion like my old BlackBerry does.

HERNANDEZAvenue Writer The prohibition era will razzle dazzle the Constans Theatres audience in the upcoming production of the beloved musical Chicago. The show originated on Broadway long before UF School of Theatre and Dance, the show will feature performances by students. As I interviewed the spirited cast of Chicago, I realized the group would more aptly be referred to as a family. During the rehearsal of the quintessential Chicago song, The Cell Block Tango, the family came alive. Director Tony Mata gave the cue. Seconds after, six young women who like to call themselves Tonys Angels dragged simple chairs across the stage. As the piano started, Mata called, Hold. Unfazed, the performers sat in their seats and began to chitchat. One of the actresses politely excused her self to the restroom, and as she walked away, she slid and fell on the freshly cleaned stage. Laughter erupted from all who witnessed the fumble. Quiet on stage please! stage manager Janiel Myers, a 19-year-old theater sophomore, barked from the control booth. That sparked Matas interest. What happened? he exclaimed.

Considered only 10 percent disabled, the man receives $100 a month. Now, Amir is doing his part to help those who cant help themselves. Amir and the rest of his band, Whiplash, will be performing at Double Down Live on Friday night. All proceeds will go to the Disabled American Veterans. We keep hearing in the news about how veterans get short-changed he said. Obviously what we can donate is a drop in the bucket, but its good to raise awareness. We have thousands and thousands of wounded vets that are going to be dealing with this for the rest of their lives, and its an important thing for the American public to know about. Disabled American Veterans is resents more than 200,000 veterans and their families. According to the 2012 Transpor tation Network Program, Disabled American Veterans is currently using donations to buy vans to transport the veterans. The largest of the cars that can be purchased, the 2012 Ford E350 XL Wagon, holds up to 12 passengers and would cost more than $25,000. Its a good day to support Veterans Day and a good way to support Veterans Day by coming out and head-banging, Simon Amir said. Primarily a Metallica tribute band, Whiplash was formed in 2008 and is now made up of guitar ists Jamie Amir and Simon Amir, lead singer Shawn Manley, drummer Tobin Wagstaff and bassist Matthew Weisman. Simon and Jamie Amir said they both learned to play guitar using Metallica songs, starting with the easiest songs and gradually progressing. Manley, who hosts the 4Dimensional Meltdown show on Grow Radio, said song variety is vital to the bands show. We have a completely new set list every time, he said. We dont want to get old, and we dont want our audience to get bored. With Whiplash rehearsals held in his brothers house, Jamie Amir said that even his 13-month-old niece, Lila, has learned to play some Metallica. She already knows how to hold a pick and what to do with it, he said. Shell come up to the guitar and start strumming it. As for the combination of Metallica and veterans, Jamie Amir said that they chose songs with appropriate themes. All of the songs on our set list are more relevant now than ever, he said. We picked songs that matter. Doors open at 9 p.m. for free Tickets can be purchased at ticketweb.com or at the door for less than $10. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011Courtesy to the Alligator Jamie Amir, Tobin Wagstaff, Shawn Manley, Matthew Weisman and Simon Amir are performing at Dou ble Down Live on Friday at 10 p.m. All proceeds go to Disabled American Veterans. KIERA WRIGHT-RUIZAvenue WriterThe post reads: When it was over, all he said was, This is our secret. Michelle came back a little later, after I made sure to delete the dirty texts from her phone, and we continued with our chat about her incredible sex [she had with her boyfriend], but the only difference was that this time, I knew exactly what she was talking about. is the most bootylicious story on Booty Drop. BootyDrop.com is a website where college students post hookup stories anonymously. Since its Aug. 8 launch, it has received almost 100,000 hits, said 20-year-old Kevin Lance, co-founder of Booty Drop and junior at the University of Maryland. During his freshman year, he and co-founder Matthew became good friends before Lance transferred to UMD. After Friday and Saturday nights, students from their dor hookups, Weaver said. We wanted to put the lounge experience on the web, said the junior English major at IU. To maintain anonymity, Lance and Weaver both personally edit each post to ensure no last names are used. Last Night and CollegeACB, Lance said. We know people thought CollegeACB was trash, and we didnt want our website to be like that, he said. And Texts From Last Night was way too short for us. You cant tell a story with such a small amount of words or characters. It is great to be a Florida Gator, but it is even better to be a Booty Dropper, Weaver said. nitely use [Booty Drop], joked Sarah Strassler, a 19-year-old chemistry sophomore. Its just a way for college students to post funny things that happen to them, but anonymously, because hookups can be embarrassing and not always socially acceptable to tell other people. The site is funny, she said. However, she can see how it would further the stereotype that college students just want to hook up. The stories are too long, said Nicole Georges, a 20-year-old political science junior. No ones really going to sit and read all of them because the stories are similar, she said. I dont know if I would look at [Booty Drop] every day. She said if it had more variety and shorter posts, the site would have a better chance of being successful. I think its kind of obnoxious, said Aaron Nadeau, a 19year-old mechanical engineering sophomore. I can under youre just a person looking on this website, you can really be put-off by the website, which I was kind of. The UF portion of BootyDrop.com currently has no posts yet. click this

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG More Stories OnlineVisit alligatorSports.org for more about Floridas cross country teams and their battle at the NCAA South Regional on Saturday, as well as a story about the volleyball teams impending weekend road trip. Gators freshman guard Carlie Needles tore a ligament in her knee during practice and will miss the 2011-12 season. See story at alligatorSports.org. GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Like every other unit on the team, the Gators secondary has been through some tough times. Against Tennessee and quar terback Tyler Bray, Florida gave up 288 yards through the air. Against LSU and talented wideout Rueben Randle, UF allowed 215 passing yards on just 14 attempts. And Saturday against Vanderbilt and quarterback Jordan Rodgers, the Gators secondary yielded 220 yards in the second half alone. But each of those tests pales in comparison to what Florida (5-4, 3-4 Southeastern Confer ence) will face Saturday at noon when it travels to Columbia, S.C., to take on No. 15 South Carolina (7-2, 5-2 SEC) and superstar wideout Alshon Jeffery. Hes a bigger guy, so this week we have to really play into the guy and not go for the ball, sophomore cornerback Jaylen Watkins said. We have to get it out of his hands. A second-team All-American last year, Jeffery hauled in 88 passes for 1,517 yards and nine touchdowns. So far this season he has just scores, but the numbers arent truly indicative of his perfor mance. Even though he doesnt have maybe the same We here at the alligator Sports Brand Picks Column like to run a clean program. We dont get caught up recruiting violations or even legal trouble (for the most part). So when all hell broke loose in the college athletics realm this week, we were taken aback. Penn States issues? What else is there to say that hasnt already been said? We are so morally outraged by what has happened in Happy Valley that we wont touch it with a 10-foot pole. Were just happy the board of trustees came to its senses late Wednesday night. So much attention has been put on the Nittany Lions this week that other schools with lesser problems have been airing their dirty laundry at an opportune time. UCFs athletic director and wide receivers coach resigned amid recruiting allegations while basketball coach Donnie Jones was suspended because he failed to maintain a culture of compliance. We think its cute that UCF is trying to be like the other big schools in the state of Flor ida, but it needs to step its game up when it comes to NCAA violations. Oregon released documents related to the Willie Lyles scandal on the same day in hopes that it wouldnt garner too much attention. Now thats smart business. With so many negative things going on, we let two columnists who have nothing to hide debate one of this weekends marquee matchups. Stanford (-3.5) will continue to show why it is the class of the NCAA because Lets be real here: Stanford can do no wrong.

Secondary facing biggest test of season Saturday COACH BECKY BURLEIGH SAID MISTAKES ON DEFENSE HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TO OVERCOME. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer To the blind eye, the Gators have nothing to worry about as they prepare ment. Coach Becky Burleigh thinks other wise. No. 2 seed Florida (16-7) is looking to correct recent defensive problems as it prepares to take on Florida Gulf Coast (14-4-2) in the opening round on Satur day night at 7 at home in Pressly Stadium. two teams, 5-0, on Sept. 11, but Burleigh said the victory and higher seeding does not mean anything come Saturday, adding Florida needs to keep improving. What seed we are doesnt help us beat Florida Gulf Coast, Burleigh said. the Gators held the Eagles to just three shots on goal. However, since that suffocating perfor mance, Burleigh has need to be addressed. Southeastern Conference Tournament last week in Orange Beach, Ala., with wins against Georgia and Alabama. a 3-2 loss to Auburn, because of costly goals that resulted from what Burleigh described as a poor defensive presence.

Thats a real credit to him. Floridas secondary is a young, inexperienced unit that has thrived against the dregs of the schedule to establish the No. fense. But the Gators have struggled to generate turnovers on the back end, as they are tied for last in the Watkins said those struggles are a product of defenders not getting their heads turned around in coverage. Were in great position every time, but we seem to lose most of the battles, Watkins said. In an attempt to correct the is sue, Watkins said he and some of the other defensive backs have started to stay after practice to get extra repetitions. work he has done with fresh and sophomore wide receiver Stephen Alli, who all stay after practice nearly every day so Wat kins can work on getting his head around in coverage and making a play on the ball. Watkins said the tangles with helped him prepare for Satur Jeffery. The ability to combat size is has been playing more snaps cus Roberson 9 sophomore Cody Riggs has in recent weeks. Riggs started seven games, but has since been replaced by Watkins. Speed and length are two of the things Quinn said he looks for in a cornerback, and Watkins les and two passes broken up in four games during October, he pass breakups against Vander bilt. I was real pleased to see him do that, Quinn said. Were encouraged by him and each week its technique, getting stronger and I think hes developed.

Amanda Cohen / Alligator Asian Kaleidoscope Month and the Pride Student Union joined forces to present LGBT Stories: Queer in Asian America, a panel discussion featuring Pauline Park, Andy Sun, Natalie Nguyen and Ernie Selorio Jr. on Wednesday evening in Ustler Hall. ADMINISTRATION ERIN JESTER Alligator Writer The Florida Board of Governors recommended Wednesday that UF rework its proposal to expand its dental program with Florida A&M University and return with a less costly proposal in January. The Board, which was expected to vote on the proposal Wednesday, expressed support for the collaboration between the two schools, but several members balked at the proposed costs, which amount to $6 million in recurring funds by the programs fourth year. UF and FAMUs proposal aimed to increase the number of dentists in Floridas rural and under-served areas and increase diversity of dental students by expanding UFs program by 48 students over the course of four years. UF has requested an initial $2.2 million for renovations to the dental science building. Some members voiced concerns about the cost to the state of each new dental student under the expansion. UF President Bernie Machen countered that intense programs such as dental medicine have always cost more than others. Board member Dean Colson reminded fellow members there is a problem with the lack of dentists practicing in under-served and rural areas of the state. I think it would be a worthwhile expenditure, he said. The Board agreed to move the discussion out of the Strategic Planning Committee and hear a revised proposal with the entire Board of Governors at its next meeting in January. The University of Central Florida on Tuesday withdrew its proposal for its own dental college. Although this innovative project does not require state appropriations, we are not moving forward at this time, UCF spokesman Grant Heston said in a statement. We look forward to continuing to work on this project in the future. Board of Governors calls for cheaper dental school plans THE SG-FUNDED GROUP WAS SUPPOSED TO HAND OUT FLIERS BY THIS MONTH. MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Staff Writer Santa Fe Colleges task force against sexual harassment is preparing to tackle the issue of catcalls, but initiatives may not see light until December. Ashleigh Bennett, chair of the task force and Student Government vice president, said it plans to host an awareness event in February and to set up an incident phone and email hotline. In October, Bennett said she hoped to see the task force handing ber. That time line has been pushed back to December. Bennett said it will probably be mostly funded by Student Government. The task force must submit a proposal to SG before it can get funding, but Bennett said she anticipates a budget between $1,000 and $4,000. Students are taking the lead with the task force, which was formed in October, because college administration wants to take a peer-to-peer approach, Bennett said. Federal and state laws about sexual harassment include provisions requiring schools to maintain their own sexual harassment policies. If a student is caught in an act of verbal harassment, Bennett said, the college advisement department will decide the punishment. If its physical harassment, the college police could get involved. Ed Book, SFC police chief, said his department will be following SGs lead. He said the police department would be involved, but he wasnt sure what the extent of that involvement would be. The task force was founded after a SFC professor brought the issue of catcalling to SG in October. Bennett AMANDA COHEN Alligator Contributing Writer The Asian American Student Union and Pride Student Union joined forces Wednesday evening in Ustler Hall to share the experiences people with dual-minority identity face. Its really hard to bridge the gap between being queer and especially because API parents bring up their children with such strict gender binaries, said Andy Sun, a 19-year-old economics sophomore. Sun, along with three other panelists, participated in LGBT Stories: Queer in Asian America, which was part of the 18th annual Asian Kaleidoscope Month. Keynote speaker Pauline Park, chair of the New York Association for Gender Rights Adcommunities requires recognizing diversity. The point is not to bring together people who share a common identity but who share a common oppression, said Park, 51. Sun said he has to maintain a certain standard around his family, not cutting his hair too short and not discussing his sex life.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 3 SAFETY EMILY MORROWAlligator WriterAbout half of all seventh through 12th grade students reported that they were sexually harassed during the last school year. According to a report released Monday by the American Association of University Women, of 1,965 students surveyed across the country, 56 percent of girls and 40 percent of boys said they had been sexually harassed. Of those respondents, 87 percent said the harassment had a negative impact on them. sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. This includes actions like making sexual jokes or gestures, creating or displaying sexually explicit images, and inappropriate touching or requests. The majority of respondents who said they had experienced sexual harassment said it was verbal. Thirty-three percent of students said others had made unwelcome sexual comments, gestures or jokes to them, and 18 per cent said they had been called gay or lesbian in a negative way. Two percent of students said they had been forced to perform sexual acts. Phyllis Erney, a guidance counselor at Kasex-related issues start to occur when students enter seventh grade. When they move up from sixth to seventh grade, their hormones start kicking in and they start paying attention to the opposite sex, she said. We end up with a lot more drama and we start to have boy-girl issues. As a result, Kanapaha Middle counselors gave seventh grade classrooms counseling sessions this week on sexual harassment, teachand hurting. Erney said counselors encourage students to talk to a trusted adult or to see a counselor if they are being harassed. According to the study, only about 9 per cent of students who said they had been haincident. Pamela Garcia, a guidance counselor at Santa Fe High School, said there were three reported incidents of sexual harassment dur year at Santa Fe. Last year, there were four. This year, there werent any. Garcia said she thinks online harassment is becoming more prevalent a trend that is Though 44 percent of students said they experienced harassment in school, about a third said they were harassed online, via pictures, texts, Facebook messages or rumors that were spread. Catherine Hill, co-author of the study, said online harassment can be particularly troubling for students. E-harassment is invisible to others, she said. Its very invasive. It can be 24/7. Its hard for teachers and parents to know whats going on. Students who said they had been sexually harassed said they often didnt want to go to school, felt sick to their stomach and had trouble studying or sleeping. [Sexual harassment] can be a challenging topic to talk about, Hill said. Its much more comfortable to talk about bullying. But this is a question of how students are treating each other in schools that is incredibly important for us to address.Study finds that sexual harassment common for teenagers This is a question of how students are treating each other in schools that is incredibly important for us to address.Catherine Hillco-author of the study

AUBREY PRIMERAlligator Contributing WriterAustin Cooley and Niko Ralf word quilt. For Cooley, 25, and Cunningham, 34, starting a social media platform to account for the gray area present within popular social networking websites made sense. We dont think were just another Facebook, said Cooley, who graduated from UF in 2008 with a bachelors degree in computer engineering. Cooley, along with Cunningham and Shane Mooney, co-foundgraduated from UF in 2008 with a bachelors degree in computer science, founded Quillt about six months ago. Quillt integrates the utilities of text messaging, sending videos and sharing photographs on a social platform similar to a private news feed. The platform allows users to connect privately with the people they care most about, Cooley said. Cooley and Cunningham came to Gainesville this week to launch the application, which currently is available only to UF email address holders. UF felt like home, Cooley said. Cunningham, who graduated from Columbia University in 2009 with a bachelors degree in economics and from Harvard University in 2010 with a masters in technology and innovation, said having the launch in Gainesville made perfect sense. Wednesday night, they hosted a local launch party at The Swamp Restaurant. urday, Quillt has accumulated a waiting list of more than 600 people. Users who join the application must have friends who already are using it. However, Cunningham said new users might be admitted in waves. Cooley spoke about starting Quillt and the applications future to about 15 UF students on Wednesday. I think what got me to this point is constant, constant, constant hard work and never giving up, Cooley said. The stitching of Quillt began with the Kauffman Labs Education Ventures Program. The program selected 23 entrepreneurs with education-centered endeavors from a competitive pool of 1,000 people. Cooley presented a business plan promoting Youtorial, a software-training platform, and Cunninghams plan focused on the connection of high school students with college mentors in their proWhen participants were told they would be given living assignments, Cunningham requested to live with Cooley. The two didnt know each other yet, but someone Cunningham met prior to the program told him he should keep an eye on Cooley. Each of them had different attributes that we observed that have worked well together, said Sandy Miller, director of Kauffman Labs for Enterprise Creation. presented ForgetWeNot, Quillts prototype, to Miller and the rest of the Kauffman Labs Education Ventures Program. I just loved it, Miller said. I thought it was really special it would be appealing to people in many different contexts. Quillts four interfaces, Apps for iPhone, Android, SMS and web, were developed on a shoestring budget. Constructing the applications multiple platforms cost about $100,000, Cunningham said. So far, Quillt has raised about $250,000. Right now, building the product, we have been blessed, Cunningham said. Similar established social media websites are worth anywhere from $40 million to $100 million, and Cooley and Cunningham aspire to be among them. With about 20 employees, Coolstaff is being paid at an hourly rate of about $8. This shows the convictions of the Quillt staff and their belief in the product, Cooley and Cunningham said. Quillts group of investors and advisers, including Facebook cofounder Andrew McCollum, has provided a council of experienced and driven individuals to help feed Quillts potential. My impression [of Cooley and Cunningham] was that they were really kind of dynamic and charismatic, said Randy Scott, Quillt investor and entrepreneur. They had passion for what they were doing and they seemed like they could be really resourceful. David Whitney, investor in Quillt and entrepreneur in residence of the UF College of Engineering, said he thinks Quillt will be gamechanging. that Facebook creates, Whitney said. With trends in private sharing becoming more apparent, competition among social networks for mind space and users is growing. I think private sharing is a problem that is not yet solved, said Rich Pearson, vice president of marketing for Posterous, an online publishing platform with initiatives similar to those of Quillts. The ability to connect with your friends, privately, from anywhere you are is what were hugely trying to solve, he said. Pearson said that based on the numbers he is seeing, companies pursuing solutions to this problem are going to do well. Cooley said Quillts business model is to connect and engage users on an intimate level. Its about preserving memories, Cooley said.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Bus Drivers Union offers condolences to injured biker On behalf of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1579, I would like to express our condolences to Mr. Abdellatief and his family for the trauma and injuries he has suffered and express our wishes for his full recovery. Mary Frances Folz Donahue President, ATU 1579 Unite dominates SG, kills bills promoting democracy This past summer, when many students were gone studying abroad, doing internships and relaxing at home, the Unite Party was busy pushing through corrupt, tyrannical legislation. One of the most corrupt changes it made was adding the ability to kill any bill based on its implication, a virtually meaningless term that the minority argued gave Unite the ability to kill bills it didnt like before the Student Senate got to vote on them. Thats exactly what this change has done. Since the Fall election, the Unite Party has already killed three bills in one meeting before the public got a chance to see them. One was from a senator utilizing his right to express his religious freedom, something that should never be silenced and certainly not silenced in an obscure committee meeting. Unite killed a bill that tried to make the majority-ruled Senate Executive Committee, composed of seven Unite chairmen, acknowledge the voices anny, Unite killed a bill to make the position of parliamentarian non-partisan, despite the fact that the current parliamentarian, a supposedly unbiased voice, managed campaign materials for Unite in the fall. Unite is not merely content with its supermajority control, it demands total, one-party domination and is doing everything within its power to crush the minority voice of the Senate. It ignores not only minority senators, but also their constituents students at this university. Unites message is clear: If you do not agree with it, your opinion will not be heard. This is unscrupulous, undemocratic and un-American. Unite and its leaders should be ashamed by their blatant disregard for basic democratic rights. Carly Wilson UF SG Senator Students Party Communications Director S words to be Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow. This sentiment caused a stir as everyone What was he experiencing? Is the light at the end of the tunnel deserving of such language? Perhaps Jobs, being the incredible showman he was, was well aware of the media frenzy that would follow his death. He knew his death would be monitored as the iPad 2 launch was a few months prior, and he wanted to leave the world guessing. I, somehow, have a hard time believing that. The recently published transcript of his eulogy given by his sister, Mona Simpson, illuminates the man behind the acid-washed jeans and black mock turtlenecks. Though he built up a company whose stock is about as successful as one can be, Jobs tried to stay grounded. Despite his fame, the words of his sister portray him deeper than the man who graced the cover of Time magazine eight times. Final words are distinctly different from what graces someones epitaph. Unless our will is exwords that the world remembers you by. Final words come directly from the deceased persons themselves. The afterlife, death, the mortality of human existence. Humans are obsessed with death. But Beauty will fail, your hair will thin, but words live on forever. Shakespeare knew words could live longer than he ever could. The bard has been dead for almost 400 years but most high school graduates will have read something he penned. Hes part of our collective memory. men can breathe or eyes can see, / So long lives this and this gives life to thee. It could be read as beauty always being present in the youth, but upon a close reading, we realize As long as men can see the print or someone is able to recite the poem, the sonnet is alive. Words are what give humans immortality; our novels live forever in the Library of Congress, and our blog posts will forever haunt the intern on servers hidden away in dark basements. Final words are that last part of a person we can hold on to, that part of themselves they created. Think different, Apples trademark slogan, is of Jobs last words will stay with us. We lost an amazing innovator last month; a man who truly changed the way we talk about technology and integrate it into our lives. His legacy is a great one, but he left us with a new view on the end of our lives: Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow. Francesca Morizio is a columnist for The Eagle at American University. Final words live on after death UWire What is the role of government? That is a question we need to be asking more often. Today, the government ignores the Constitution and decides what areas it wants to intrude into. One of these areas is entitlements, and the problem keeps growing. The role of the U.S. government was not to give people a retirement, provide medical care, give money to the unemployed, help people sell their houses, give out student loans or bail out businesses. This entitlement system is unsustainable, and its because the government decided to give a certain group of people money because it became corrupt. The government is a monopoly. There isnt another government to compete with it. So, when you decide to allow the government to give out money from taxpayers to certain people, you get a bureaucracy. Today the entitlement program has caused many of our current economic issues. This whole idea that the government is responsible for your well-being started after the Great Depression and Franklin Roosevelts New Deal. He started social security, subsidies and increased taxes. We have been taught that FDR saved the economy and got us out of the Great Depression, but I would argue that is not the case. So what should the role of government be? How about to ensure your right to provide for you and your family and not let someone or something else infringe on your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Lets start taking responsibility for ourselves instead of asking the government to take care of us. That will help solve some of our economic issues we are currently facing. You want a happier life? Do what Ben Franklin did and go get it yourself instead of asking the government to. Cory Thomas is a columnist for The Nevada Sagebrush at the University of Nevada.

Shari Thompson / Alligator Katrina Asmar (Velma Kelly) and Taylor Rector (Roxie Hart) rehearse for the UF School of Theater and Dances Chicago. He SaysHe said, she said: Whats a healthy amount of jealousy?Im going to come right out and say it Im a hypocrite when it comes to jealousy. I tell friends anger and trust their partners. Yet, when I see a guy whos better looking, richer or more suave than me talking to my girlfriend, I immediately throw on the death stare. If this sounds like you, dont feel bad. Its hard to practice what you preach when it comes to jealousy. Ive also had to sit at home while an ex-girlfriend got lunch with a guy friend or stood alone at the bar while my girl got chatted up by some rando who doesnt know shes taken. Its annoying as hell, yes, but it doesnt merit jealous feelings. Honestly, what could actually result from these situations? Your partner isnt going to fall in love with his or her friend after one lunch date. You have to convince yourself that the emotions just arent worth the trouble. However, if your boyfriend or girlfriend begins to hang out with this friend all the time, if they ner starts to put him or her ahead of you, then you have some solid reasons to get upset. Actions like these raise suspicions and put your relationship in jeopardy. Being a couple means putting each other before anyone else. If this isnt happening, then by all means JACOB ROMOSER Once upon a time in the land of Everything is Awesome, there lived a girl who was completely secure. She only felt happiness for those who were more successful than her and utmost appreciation for all of the positive things in her life. There was no need to complain, feel inadequate or belittle anyone else. She was completely at peace. Get real. I recently had a phone conversation with one of my exes. Keith T., now a 30-year-old photographer and art teacher living in Brooklyn, is a guy I had dated and lived with for almost two years while enduring New York City during my early 20s. Despite a rather exasperating breakup, Keith and I have remained kosher during the years with sporadic hangouts, emails, etc. Now when bringing up this old divides Keith and I: our stances in a previous column, I bat for team cheating-is-a-deal-breaker, while Keiths view is a bit more lenient. Bottom line: We agree to disagree, and, like any other friend, he and I also talk culture, politics and sex. Having never met or even heard about my current boyfriend, Keith asked about my relationship. I told him that the beau travels frequently with his job, a career that elicits a unanimous eyebrow raise from the general population in terms of sex-capades. While I do trust my boyfriend and calmly address with him any rare concerns I might have, I also admit that this scenario notoriously tests presumptions. Keiths reaction? You just need to not be jealous. Jealousy. Its a demon of a word. How is it that in an instant, a persons connothing but ones competitive and vulnerable insecurities? Is a jealous reaction a sign of weakness, or is it an intuitive response to a real problem? The answer really doesnt matter. I actually agree with Keith, for I know the only person who can establish well-being is myself. As a result, I seek the zen of Everything is Awesome. KAY BEA She Says SAPHIRA LAZARREAvenue WriterA hot commodity in the smartphone world, the iPhone 4S is losing its cool when it comes to battery life. Many users of the phone and the iOS 5 update say they have seen dramatic decreases in the longevity of the phones battery, according to a Computer World article. Since its mid-October release, the iPhone 4S has made many consumers glad they are Team Apple. However, some users blame the phones excessive application additions and updated operating system for a decline in its battery performance. Customers have vented to fellow users about their dissatisfaction with the iPhones battery life on the Apple Support Communities website. The thread, titled iPhone 4S Battery Life? has more than 3,700 posts. However, health science freshman Audi Mendez, I have noticed that the battery drains a little quicker, Mendez said, but its worth the updates that the phone has. Mendez owns the iPhone 4 but has the iOS 5 update, which some customers believe is the cause of the battery drain. New to iPhone and Apple smartphone services, Jenna Blechman, 22, said she has yet to experience issues with the phone or its battery life. The psychology senior recently purchased the iPhone 4S and said she was more than excited when she heard the phone became available to Sprint carriers. I believe it lives up to the hype, Blechman said. The speed of the [operating system] and the phones ability to do so many things at once is great. The only tion like my old BlackBerry does.

The show originated on Broadway long before UF School of Theatre and Dance, the show will feature performances by students. As I interviewed the spirited cast of Chicago, I realized the group would more aptly be referred to as a family. During the rehearsal of the quintessential Chicago song, The Cell Block Tango, the family came alive. Director Tony Mata gave the cue. Seconds after, six young women who like to call themselves Tonys Angels dragged simple chairs across the stage. As the piano started, Mata called, Hold. Unfazed, the performers sat in their seats and began to chitchat. One of the actresses politely excused her self to the restroom, and as she walked away, she slid and fell on the freshly cleaned stage. Laughter erupted from all who witnessed the fumble.

KATE FELDMANAvenue WriterJamie Amir, a Gainesville dentist, recently had a patient who was no longer able to do his job, not because of laws or age, but because of injuries to his wrist from when he was serving in the Vietnam War. Considered only 10 percent disabled, the man receives $100 a month. Now, Amir is doing his part to help those who cant help themselves. Amir and the rest of his band, Whiplash, will be performing at Double Down Live on Friday night. All proceeds will go to the Disabled American Veterans. We keep hearing in the news about how veterans get short-changed he said. Obviously what we can donate is a drop in the bucket, but its good to raise awareness. We have thousands and thousands of wounded vets that are going to be dealing with this for the rest of their lives, and its an important thing for the American public to know about. Disabled American Veterans is resents more than 200,000 veterans and their families. According to the 2012 Transportation Network Program, Disabled American Veterans is currently using donations to buy vans to transport the veterans. The largest of the cars that can be purchased, the 2012 Ford E350 XL Wagon, holds up to 12 passengers and would cost more than $25,000. Its a good day to support Veterans Day and a good way to support Veterans Day by coming out and head-banging, Simon Amir said. Primarily a Metallica tribute band, Whiplash was formed in 2008 and is now made up of guitarists Jamie Amir and Simon Amir, lead singer Shawn Manley, drummer Tobin Wagstaff and bassist Matthew Weisman. Simon and Jamie Amir said they both learned to play guitar using Metallica songs, starting with the easiest songs and gradually progressing. Manley, who hosts the 4Dimensional Meltdown show on Grow Radio, said song variety is vital to the bands show. We have a completely new set list every time, he said. We dont want to get old, and we dont want our audience to get bored. With Whiplash rehearsals held in his brothers house, Jamie Amir said that even his 13-month-old niece, Lila, has learned to play some Metallica. She already knows how to hold a pick and what to do with it, he said. Shell come up to the guitar and start strumming it. As for the combination of Metallica and veterans, Jamie Amir said that they chose songs with appropriate themes. All of the songs on our set list are more relevant now than ever, he said. We picked songs that matter.

Its just a way for college students to post funny things that happen to them, but anonymously, because hookups can be embarrassing and not always socially acceptable to tell other people.

The stories are too long, said Nicole Georges, a 20-year-old political science junior. No ones really going to sit and read all of them because the stories are similar, she said. I dont know if I would look at [Booty Drop] every day. She said if it had more variety and shorter posts, the site would have a better chance of being successful.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2011 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG More Stories OnlineVisit alligatorSports.org for more about Floridas cross country teams and their battle at the NCAA South Regional on Saturday, as well as a story about the volleyball teams impending weekend road trip. Gators freshman guard Carlie Needles tore a ligament in her knee during practice and will miss the 2011-12 season. See story at alligatorSports.org. GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Like every other unit on the team, the Gators secondary has been through some tough times. Against Tennessee and quar terback Tyler Bray, Florida gave up 288 yards through the air. Against LSU and talented wideout Rueben Randle, UF allowed 215 passing yards on just 14 attempts. And Saturday against Vanderbilt and quarterback Jordan Rodgers, the Gators secondary yielded 220 yards in the second half alone. But each of those tests pales in comparison to what Florida (5-4, 3-4 Southeastern Confer ence) will face Saturday at noon when it travels to Columbia, S.C., to take on No. 15 South Carolina (7-2, 5-2 SEC) and superstar wideout Alshon Jeffery. Hes a bigger guy, so this week we have to really play into the guy and not go for the ball, sophomore cornerback Jaylen Watkins said. We have to get it out of his hands. A second-team All-American last year, Jeffery hauled in 88 passes for 1,517 yards and nine touchdowns. So far this season he has just scores, but the numbers arent truly indicative of his perfor mance. Even though he doesnt have maybe the same We here at the alligator Sports Brand Picks Column like to run a clean program. We dont get caught up recruiting violations or even legal trouble (for the most part). So when all hell broke loose in the college athletics realm this week, we were taken aback. Penn States issues? What else is there to say that hasnt already been said? We are so morally outraged by what has happened in Happy Valley that we wont touch it with a 10-foot pole. Were just happy the board of trustees came to its senses late Wednesday night. So much attention has been put on the Nittany Lions this week that other schools with lesser problems have been airing their dirty laundry at an opportune time. UCFs athletic director and wide receivers coach resigned amid recruiting allegations while basketball coach Donnie Jones was suspended because he failed to maintain a culture of compliance. We think its cute that UCF is trying to be like the other big schools in the state of Flor ida, but it needs to step its game up when it comes to NCAA violations. Oregon released documents related to the Willie Lyles scandal on the same day in hopes that it wouldnt garner too much attention. Now thats smart business. With so many negative things going on, we let two columnists who have nothing to hide debate one of this weekends marquee matchups. Stanford (-3.5) will continue to show why it is the class of the NCAA because Lets be real here: Stanford can do no wrong. The Cardinal is clean as a whistle and touts one of the premier athletic programs in the nation, Picks Column SITE: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, S.C., (cap. 80,250) KICKOFF: 12 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: CBS / 850 AM SEE PICKSS, pP AGE 20 Dana Burke / AAlligator SS taffFlorida cornerback Jaylen Watkins (14) said the Gators secondary has to concentrate on taking the ball out of South Carolina receiver Alshon Jefferys hands this Saturday. Secondary facing biggest test of season Saturday COACH BECKY BURLEIGH SAID MISTAKES ON DEFENSE HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TO OVERCOME. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer To the blind eye, the Gators have nothing to worry about as they prepare ment. Coach Becky Burleigh thinks other wise. No. 2 seed Florida (16-7) is looking to correct recent defensive problems as it prepares to take on Florida Gulf Coast (14-4-2) in the opening round on Satur day night at 7 at home in Pressly Stadium. two teams, 5-0, on Sept. 11, but Burleigh said the victory and higher seeding does not mean anything come Saturday, adding Florida needs to keep improving. What seed we are doesnt help us beat Florida Gulf Coast, Burleigh said. the Gators held the Eagles to just three shots on goal. However, since that suffocating perfor mance, Burleigh has need to be addressed. Southeastern Conference Tournament last week in Orange Beach, Ala., with wins against Georgia and Alabama. a 3-2 loss to Auburn, because of costly goals that resulted from what Burleigh described as a poor defensive presence. The Gators failure to clear loose balls Katy Friersons two goals. One was cour a UF defender. Burleigh said Florida could avoid letdowns such as these by taking a more aggressive approach to the ball on defense.

The second ball goes to whoever controls it off of the touch that ensues. ball battle against the Tigers by four after controlling twice as many as both the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide in the Junior center back Kat Williamson said being more physical when the opposi tion is on the attack could help prevent loose balls from becoming something worse for Florida. Its what you are willing to do for your teammates, Williamson said. Are you willing to slide tackle somebody when you may not win it? Are you will ing to go in hard to a chal lenge when you might get hurt? the Gators rely on everyone from the keeper to the high est forward. Tymrak said players who arent on the back line can do plenty to stop balls from get ting into the defensive third We have to stay compact and we have to screen balls, Tymrak said. If they dont get past us, they arent going to get to the goal and score.

Thats a real credit to him. Floridas secondary is a young, inexperienced unit that has thrived against the dregs of the schedule to establish the No. fense. But the Gators have struggled to generate turnovers on the back end, as they are tied for last in the Watkins said those struggles are a product of defenders not getting their heads turned around in coverage. Were in great position every time, but we seem to lose most of the battles, Watkins said. In an attempt to correct the is sue, Watkins said he and some of the other defensive backs have started to stay after practice to get extra repetitions. work he has done with fresh and sophomore wide receiver Stephen Alli, who all stay after practice nearly every day so Wat kins can work on getting his head around in coverage and making a play on the ball. Watkins said the tangles with helped him prepare for Satur Jeffery. The ability to combat size is has been playing more snaps cus Roberson 9 sophomore Cody Riggs has in recent weeks. Riggs started seven games, but has since been replaced by Watkins. Speed and length are two of the things Quinn said he looks for in a cornerback, and Watkins les and two passes broken up in four games during October, he pass breakups against Vander bilt. I was real pleased to see him do that, Quinn said. Were encouraged by him and each week its technique, getting stronger and I think hes developed. And we want to see him get ting some more playing time, too. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org.

Andrew Luck is going to keep hope alive, because when Stanford raises that crystal ball in January, its one title that has no chance of being stripped in the future.
