After three months of strife left Florida at a disappointing 6-5, a matchup with FSU provided an opportunity for redemption. Instead, the Gators (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) succumbed to the same problems that have plagued them throughout 2011, falling 21-7 to the Seminoles (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) in The Swamp. Im just extremely disappointed again (Saturday) and in the season overall, coach Will Muschamp said. Were a soft football team. Thats the bottom line. Playbooks that Muschamp distributed before the season listed three goals on the cover: Lead the Nation In: Effort, Toughness, Turnover Margin. With four interceptions and only one takeaway Saturday, the Gators turnover margin sits at minus-11, among the worst in the country. I told our guys were not a physically tough team and were not a mentally tough team, Muschamp said. Ive been called a lot of things in my life, but soft (is) not one of them. And we are. In part, these struggles are due to depth, as the physical grind of a 12-game season takes a toll on offensive and defensive line rotations that only go seven deep, even when fully healthy. Another factor is youth. Florida had only 11 scholarship seniors to honor on Saturday. Also crippling the Gators is an inability to run the ball. Same old mistakes doom Gators in season-ending lossSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15 A Will Muschamp.

He reminded his team that they are soft: Thats theyve heard it all season, I can tell you that. I always say self evaluations hard. It starts with me and it falls on my shoulders and Im the one whos responsible, but at the end of the day, you are what you are. He talked about the teams inability to run the football: When you become a one-dimensional team, youre a lateral running team and you cant run the ball inside and you cant run the ball vertically at people, youre going to struggle Or control the line of scrimmage: Were not good enough up front right now, quite frankly. Just not. When a reporter asked about falling victim to the same errors again and again, Muschamp asked if he wanted to play on Floridas offensive line. Were doing all we can do. Doing all we can do with what weve got right now, he said.

The Gator Student Alliance formed after 87 percent of students who voted in the fall Student Government elections called to repeal the current tuition increases, said Matias Kaplan, a 19-year-old microbiology sophomore. The group hopes to combat the yearly 15-percent tuition hikes by Florida state legislature and UF administration, he said. The alliance is a coalition of large student groups on campus and will formally introduce itself at a press conference at noon on Turlington Plaza. It consists of more than 22 student organizations, including Students for a Democratic Society, Graduate Assistants United and Students for Justice in Palestine, group organizer and anthropology junior Robbey Hayes said. Each group is represented by a delegate who is a liaison between the Gator Student Alliance and his or her organization. All delegates will formally announce their association with the alliance at the news conference, said Kaplan, who is the delegate for Students for a Democratic Society. The news conference will kick-start the Gator Student Alliances week of action, during which the alliance will educate students ers, Kaplan said. This week of action will take place alongside a statewide Stop Tuition Hikes week. Other universities, including the University of South Florida, Florida Atlantic University, the University of Central Florida and Florida State University, are organizing demonstrations, too. The alliance will host a banner-making event Tuesday in which students will be able to express their opinions, and it will host a discussion about tuition hikes on Wednesday. The organization is also hosting a rally on Thursday that coincides with a board of trustees meeting, Hayes said. The rally will start on Turlington Plaza and end in Emerson Hall. All event times and locations will be announced at the news conference. Its an amazing showing of expression of the tuition-hikes issue, Hayes said.

Rick Scotts signature from Florida university diplomas is still going strong. The online petition, started by UF alumnus Eric Sanders on Nov. 8, now sports more than 400 signatures. week, the petition is starting to attract the attention of media outlets around the state, including the St. Petersburg Times education blog and StateImpact Florida, a reporting project of National Public Radio. The attention from the press, as well as the petitions growing support on Facebook, might explain the jump of 100 signatures in less than a week. Karen Kamener was the 407th person to sign the petition on SignOn.org, a site run by MoveOn. org. In the comment accompanying her signature, she wrote that she homeschooled her two younger children after seeing the negative effects of Floridas education system on her oldest child. It is a criminal act to lessen [Florida schools] quality any further, and it is really sad to see what this state has become under the current governor who behaves like a corporate criminal, she wrote on Nov. 25.Petition against Scott-signed diplomas gaining steam ASHLEY HEMMYAlligator Contributing WriterJohn Cassel takes the stand. The court case concerns a DUI, a felony charge that could ruin the life of the defendant. And this 18-year-old is a key witness. Except Cassel isnt himself right now. He is acting as a middle-aged bartender who makes as many corny jokes as he does rum-and-cokes. And Cassel isnt an actor in some law TV show where the famous dun dun! plays when a scene cuts out. This is the UF Mock Trial Team, and Cassel, a mathematics freshman, plays the role of witness for his team. Members of the Mock Trial Team, also called the LitiGators, participate in rehearsed trials in regional and national competitions. The team recently participated in competitions at the University of Georgia, Florida State University and UF. Teams and individual members from UF won awards. Cassel won Best Witness awards at the UGA and UF competitions. You have to polish the character you are becoming, and that takes practice, Cassel said. You need to be interesting to listen to. Cassel said his success is a result of teamwork. The UF Mock Trial Team is divided into four separate teams, all between nine and 10 members. The team had 37 members in all. has a faculty adviser. Before that, the team was completely student-run. Laura Sjoberg, an assistant professor in political science, is the faculty coach for the team. She works closely with team members and gives them advice. The plan is to send all four teams to the national championship, Sjoberg said. The championship, which has no set location yet, usually takes place in April. Until then, team members will continue practicing and attending local competitions.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMIAMI The family of a Florida A&M University drum major who died in what authorities suspect was a hazing incident will sue the school, an attorney said Friday. The family of Robert Champion, 26, is spending the holiday weekend planning Champions funeral, attor ney Christopher Chestnut said. The Atlanta resident was found on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel Saturday night after the schools football team lost to rival Bethune-Cookman. Police said Champion, a clarinet player who recently was named drum major, had been vomiting and complained he couldnt breathe shortly before he collapsed. The cause of Champions death hasnt been determined. Preliminary autopsy results were inconclusive, and a spokeswoman with the Orange it could take up to three months to learn exactly what killed him. said they believe some form of hazing took place before 911 was called. Chestnut said he also believes the injuries Champion sustained were consistent with hazing. A spokesman for the school, which was closed for the Thanksgiving holiday, could not be reached for comment Friday. In Florida, any death involving hazing is a third-degree felony. The fallout from Champions death was immediate. On Tuesday, the school shuttered the famed marching band and the rest of the music departments performances. The next day, longtime band director Julian White said state investigators would join the probe, and the college announced an independent review led by a former state attorney general. Tallahassee attorney Chuck Hobbs said White, a tenured professor, had tried for years to get administration backing on his efforts to stop hazing. Hazing within the Marching 100 has often been met with reckless indifwho often ignored his requests for assistance, Hobbs wrote in a letter to Florida A&M President James Ammons. The attorney said Champions family hopes a lawsuit against the school will help raise awareness about the issue of band hazing. Hazing cases have cropped up in marching bands, especially at historically black colleges where a spot in the marching band is coveted. In many cases, the bands are revered almost as much as the sports teams for which they play. horn players in Southern Universitys marching band were hospitalized after a beating. In 2009, 20 members of Jackson State Universitys band were suspended over hazing accusations. There have been numerous incidents at FAMU. In 2001, Marcus Parker suffered kidney damage after being beaten by a paddle. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff Writer Florida State University, UF did break one season record on Satur day night. With 156 ejections from Ben the UF-FSU game had the highest number of ejections and arrests of all the home games this season. At the UF-Alabama football game, seven people were arrested and 102 people were ejectedthe highest number of ejections and arrests this season until the UF-FSU game, according to Alligator archives. The new season records for the FSU game were expected given the nature of the game, said Maj. Brad for the University Police. This was something that we prepared for and was typical of a rivalry game played later on in the evening, he said. One of the 11 people arrested was a UF student. Additional information on the student wasnt available at press time. Arrests could include physical arrests or notices to appear in court, Barber said. UF students who were arrested or ejected from Saturdays game or previous matches this season could also face repercussions UPD worked with the and Florida Highway Patrol on gameday. The most common reason for ejecting people from the stadium Saturday was disorderly conduct, for which 50 people were ejected and two were arrested, according to a UPD news release. There were 31 ejections for alcohol possession, including four ar rests, and two arrests for underage possession of alcohol. cers did an excellent job managing a very hectic night, Barber said. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5Brett Le Blanc / Alligator Staff G AMED A YSaturdays game breaks season record for arrests, ejections THE ASSOCIATED PRESSCOLUMBUS, Ohio The father of an Ohio man found dead after answering a Craigslist help-wanted ad said Sunday his son sought the job in order to better provide for his three boys. Timothy Kern, 47, of Massilon was found dead Friday, buried near an Akron, Ohio, shopping mall. The Summit County Medical Examiners Kerns father, Jack Kern, told The Associated Press on Sunday that his son was employed here and there and responded to the ad for a farmhand job because he wanted the best for his own sons, ages 17, 18 and 28. Jack Kern said the ad offered $300 a week to tend more than 680 acres, similar to a Craigslist ad that police say lured another man to his death. Thats all he (Timothy) wanted to give his kids a better life, Jack Kern said. This job seemed like a great opportunity. He was really upbeat about the whole thing. Authorities say a Craigslist ad was used to lure Norfolk, Va., resident David Pauley, 51, to Ohio, apparently with the intent of robbing him. Pauley was found dead in a rural area of Noble County, 90 miles south of Akron. A South Carolina man also answered the ad and was shot Nov. 6 before escaping, police say. Two suspects are in custody and a judge has issued a gag order On the case. A third body was found hours after Kerns, not far from where Pauleys was buried in a hand-dug grave. That person has not been identhree deaths are linked. The farm advertised on Craigslist does not exist; the property where Pauleys body and the company and often leased to hunters. Jack Kern said it came as no surprise when the FBI sat his family down Saturday and told them Timothy Kern was dead of gunshot wounds to the head. He said it was out of character for his son, who was divorced, not to be in touch with his boys. We had expected this. We had hopes, but if he would have gotten away, he would have found his way, some way to call, the elder Kern said. He constantly saw his sons. I paid his cellphone bill and saw the texting, sometimes until 2, 3 oclock in the morning. I asked, What can you guys talk about with 1,000 text messages a month? Jack Kern said one of his sons biggest concerns with the Craigslist job was that he was told he would have no cellphone service and would be miles away from his boys. Authorities have said robbery may have been the motive for Pauleys death and the attack on the South Carolina man. They said Pauley was told to bring all of his possessions to the site. Jack Kern said everything Timothy Kern owned was sitting in his ex-wifes house in Massilon, where the man apparently behind the job posting was supposed to pick him up on Nov. 15. Timothy Kern went missing Nov. 13. The elder Kern said one of the stipulations of the job was that his son was supposed to sign his car over to the man in exchange for a truck. Kern said his son never told him the mans name. The two suspects in custody are from the Akron area: a high school student who has been charged with attempted murder and 52-year-old Richard Beasley, who is in jail on unrelated charges. Beasleys mother has described her sons relationship with the jailed teen as that of a mentor.Craigslist job-seekers killed Thats all he (Timothy) wanted to give his kids a better life.

Wednesdays question: Is Thanksgiving your favorite holiday?Expansion talk must end before it beginsThe most dangerous part of the increased cost of attendance at UF is coming from fees that are carelessly foisted on the Student Body and even more carelessly spent on our behalf. There is talk that our fees should go to a renovated and expanded Reitz Union. This talk must end before it begins again. Student Body Treasurer T.J. Villamil recently spoke out in favor of a larger Reitz Union. Buried within his ity of the huge cost. He said the UF Local Fee committee raised student fees by 5 percent this year, which is a practice he expects will continue. Students now pay about $54 of the $188 per credit hour toward fees, which works out to about $1,620 a year, assuming they take two 15-credit-hour semesters. Villamil expects the expansion can be paid for with leftover student fee money and outside funding. This characterization is disingenuous. Renovating the Reitz could easily be a $100-million project, which will require 5-percent fee increases in perpetuity. The best part about the higher education spending binge is that the interest groups behind projects ensure that ideas continue to get brought up when it is clear they are not favored. In the spring 2010 Student Government election, about 56 percent of students voted against a fee increase to pay for an expanded Reitz Union. This vote happened in a Greek and SG organizaof the constituency calling for a bigger Reitz originally wanted nothing to do with it. If all students were polled and provided a description of the cost, I wouldnt be shocked to learn that 80 percent of students are opposed to seeing an enhanced Reitz Union. Students dont need more study space. There are already countless buildings open around campus after 5 tially empty in the late afternoon. If you are so desper ate for more study room, go to a fully equipped classroom to work. The same goes for student organizations. Not every group has to meet in the Reitz Union at 7 p.m. on a Wednesday. We should take advantage of the fantastic meeting space all around campus that is severely underutilized. The increased cost to the univer sity from doing this is essentially zero. The air conditioners and heaters are already on in these buildings, yet nobody uses them. The party line about not having enough meeting and study space is simply not true. As for the charge that the air-conditioning unit at the Reitz could fail at any time, the managers of the Reitz should act responsibly and set up an emergency account with money from the buildings budget each year instead of expecting students to bail them out. With continual 5-percent increases in fees, the approximately $1,620 we pay today in fees yearly would be $6,480 in only 30 years, which most of us might have to pay ourselves if we have kids who decide to go to UF. cial decision for our families? I certainly did. The best students in the state couldnt care less if we have a fancy student union. ous, green-eyed monster of student fee increases, our degrees will become less valuable as students with options choose other universities that know how to keep costs under control. If I have to pay more money for my college education, I want it to fund professors, not a new monument for Student Government. Travis Hornsby is a statistics and economics senior at UF.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorDrinking age, drunk driving should not be taken lightlyWhats the drinking age for ignorance? It might be shocking to some, but puking your stomach out or waking up with one of the worst headaches you have ever had does not even begin to cover the potential consequences of irresponsible alcohol consumption. Its no wonder there are so many incidents of binge-drinking and alcohol-related emergencies at Shands at UF; the Student Body is reading articles in the Alligator that imply puking and headaches are the only consequences of drinking irresponsibly. On Feb. 25, 2006, I was a 19-year-old sophomore at UF when my car was hit head-on by another student who was driving while severely intoxicated. Eleven days later, I woke up from a coma that was the result of a right-side brain injury to a broken right femur, a crushed right heel, torn ligaments in my left knee and a broken left elbow and forearm. All of these injuries helped remove the stigma of alcohol consumption for me as a 19-year-old, but certainly a headache or puking will have the same impact, right? Drinking is a privilege, a responsibility and potentially very dangerous. Heres an idea for the Alligator Editorial Board: Do a little research before you write to an audience that is mostly underage college students about the pleasure and pain of alcohol consumption and how the drinking age should be lowered. My little brother, a freshman at UF this year, read this editorial and knew better. But what about everyone else? Grow up, Alligator. Stop trying to be the cool big brother, and stop serving ignorance. Nicole Martingano UF Class of 2009 The balanced-budget amendment put forth by House Republicans last week failed to pass during a Friday vote. At 261 yeas to 165 nays, the measure came up just 23 votes short of the two-thirds majority required by the Constitution to advance an amendment. Many critics have argued that the push for a balancedbudget amendment to the Constitution was merely symbolic. Even if the House had managed to carry the measure, it would still have had to face a Senate vote before being passed long shot in the current Congress. And it missed. The amendment failed, surprisingly, amid considerable public support. According to a July 18-20 CNN/ORC Inter national poll, nearly three in four Americans supported the passage of a balanced-budget amendment. Sixty percent of those polled also believed that a balanced-budget amendspending has continued at an alarming rate since then, it is doubtful those numbers have decreased. Some accused the amendments supporters of hypocrisy, pointing to the budget surplus coming out of the Clinton administration that collapsed under the succeeding Republican administration. Minority Whip Steny Hoyer even went as far as to tell Republicans to practice what they preach: It will take no courage to vote for this amendment, but it will take courage to balance our budget by paying for what we buy. But the most important reason that most Democrats opposed the bill is the fear that it would constrict federal spending. In the words of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., I am addicted to saving lives. I am addicted to making sure that Social Security is not violently cut by the balanced-budget amendment. Jacksons words sum up one of the lefts major arguments: Things are so bad economically that the government cannot afford to not spend money. Keynesian economic theory, which underpins most economic policies advocated by the left in Washington, argues that in times of economic decline, the government needs to be more active with spending policies. Government spendmoving forward until the private sector recovers. This kind of thinking inspired not only President Obamas stimulus package, but also several other big-spending bills passed throughout his administration. This kind of thinking, however, is also the reason President Obama is set to outspend the whole of former President George W. Bushs administration by next spring. It is true that government spending can keep gross domestic product activity high and prevent many major economic markers from dropping very far. And it is also true Security. But to then argue that such spending is actually a form of economic stimulus, as the administration tried to argue with food stamps last year, is patently absurd. Keynesian economic policy is sort of like drinking alcohol in the winter with the hope that you will get warmer. Sure, you might feel warm, but its actually just the numbing effect of the alcohol reducing your sense of temperature. If you stay outside long enough, youll still get hypothermia or frostbite because you are still very, very cold. And very drunk. Government spending during a recession makes things look a lot better than they are. But unless the private sector gets going again, all the spending does is make us feel better about the situation. The economy, in reality, is still in very bad shape. President Obamas administration has simply not been a friend of American business, save for the ones that donated to his campaign or market themselves as being a part of the green energy sector. His administrations policies have placed immense regulatory and economic burdens on American business owners. But instead of acknowledging this, the president has ar gued in recent weeks that American businesses have gotten lazy about being competitive internationally and attracting jobs. The rhetoric makes sense given Obamas policies. Lazy and immoral businesses obviously cant be trusted to save the economy, so the government has to step in. But with record-breaking levels of spending, Obamas rhetoric will soon be the only thing left propping up Americas massive budget. And talk, as the saying goes, is cheap. The balanced-budget amendment was not the cowards way out, as Steny Hoyer suggested. Rather, it was and still is By limiting government spending, it directly challenged the Keynesian economic theory that is dominating the current crop of politicians in the White House. It would have forced holes, but rather encourage sustainable growth and privatesector expansion. So much for that attempt to tie down Washingtons spending. Guess well be hitting the economic sauce for a while longer. UWireUWire

want to play guard for us? On a night only 11 scholarship seniors were honored before the game, Muschamp also talked about youth, saying Over 70 percent of our roster is freshmen and sophomores, and those are the guys that are playing. Still, he admitted Floridas problems go deeper than sheer lack of depth. I know everybody wants to put their hand on one thing and say, This is it. Eureka. Weve got the solution. But thats not the way it works, he said. Theres a lot things. Theres a lot of moving parts. Weve got to develop more discipline and toughness within what were trying to do, which I think weve made strides. But there are plenty of areas in which the Gators have struggled this season. Despite having two senior backs in Chris Rainey and Jeff at quarterback, they rank 75th nationally in rushing offense, 71st in scoring offense and 101st in total offense. At minus-11, Florida is 114th in turnover margin its no at plus-19. Under Muschamp, the Gators have been undisciplined, ranking 114th in the country in penalties with 93. We need to improve. Thats what recruiting is for and thats what bowl practice and the offseason and spring is for, he said. Thats what were going to do as a program. Were going to move forward to build on what we need to do. against FSU, Muschamp said he has hope for the future. a very frustrating time right now to be a Florida Gator, and I understand that, and it falls on my shoulders, and theres nobody else you need to look at, he said. But its going to But how, coach? Im recruiting, Muschamp said when asked what he would be doing this week. I will not be in Gainesville, Florida. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 TOM GREENAlligator Staff WriterWhat was supposed to be a dream sendoff at home for Floridas seniors quickly turned into a nightmare Saturday. The Gators 20 seniors, including 11 scholarship athletes, had been to the top of the college football world during their careers in Gainesville, with 11 being a part of a BCS national championship team and a Southeastern Conference championship squad in 2008. But after a 21-7 loss to rival FSU on Senior Day to cap a 6-6 regular season, the senior class reached a nadir. Proud of our seniors; they accomplished an awful lot at the University of Florida, coach Will Muschamp said after the game. Im proud of them, but we need to get better. While Muschamp said he was pleased with the seniors collective achievements throughout their careers, Saturdays performance was a different story, as only one senior had a positive impact. Defensive tackle Jaye Howard a sack, two tackles for a loss and a fumble recovery. For every other senior, it was a disappointing night particularly for quarterback John Brantley and running back Chris Rainey, both of nal game in The Swamp. Brantley tossed three interceptions before he left due to injury late Thats our quarterback, thats our main leader, defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. Hes the guy that holds it all together. To see him go down, it takes something out of the team. Rainey left early in the fourth quarter with what Muschamp said he thought was a hip injury. Rainey yards on 15 carries and four receptions for 5 yards. The rest of the seniors did not fare any better. Wide receiver Deonte Thompson home game, and his only stat was a half after Brantley threw an inter ception into quadruple coverage. Running back ished with four carries for negative-8 yards. Defensive end William Green was named a captain before the Offensive linemen Dan Wenger and James Wilson both struggled as the Gators were unable to establish a running game or sustain an offensive drive. They were beat on the line of scrimmage, not only Satur day, but much of the season. As FSU celebrated in The Swamp, UFs band played the alma mater one last time but no player, senior or otherwise, was around to hear it. It felt like my heart was ripped out, Wilson said. I just went inside. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@ alligator.org.Lackluster finish for Floridas senior classWilson Maegan Dennis / Alligator Staff MATT, from page 1UF gained just 54 yards on 33 carries against FSU. This is it, Muschamp said. Were doing all we can do. Doing all we can do with what weve got right now. On offense, the Gators have implemented the pistol, the I-formation, shotgun, two different Wildcat packages and even some read-option plays, but none of it has per game on the ground. At times, redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley and the passing game have been able to cover up these faults, but Saturday it was a bigger part of the problem than the solution. Gators passers represented the majority of the offense for both teams. They completed 14 of 29 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown, totals that were offset by four interceptions worth 130 return yards and a score for FSU. Florida State needed just 95 yards of offense to rack up 21 points, as each of their scores came off a turnover. nior defensive tackle Omar Hunter said. You cant win like that. After throwing just three interceptions in 209 attempts before Saturday, Brantley came unraveled against the Seminoles. On the fourth play of UFs second drive, he took a third-down snap and immediately locked on to wide receiver Quinton Dunbar to his right. FSU cornerback Greg Reid quickly broke on the out route, jumping between Dunbar and the ball in time to secure the easy interception. Just three passes later, Brantley faked a handoff, left, lofting a pass to Deonte Thompson. FSU defenders were in the area. Senior Mike Harris looked more like a punt returner than a defensive back as he hauled in the easy pick. target by a considerable margin, and Reid had another effortless turnover in his hands. injury to insult. After Florida took possession at its own 18 with 1:49 left in the second quarter, Brantley took the snap, bought time, stepped up and delivered a strike to Dunbar on a post route, good for 21 yards. Just a moment after Brantley released the ball, his head was crunched between the helmets of two FSU defenders, knocking him out of the game. home appearance, a 9-of-15 per formance for 104 yards and three interceptions. I hurt for him, Muschamp said. You dont ever game in The Swamp. Freshman Jacoby Brissett came on in relief but was no better, completing 4 of 13 passes for 27 yards, a touchdown and a fourth-quarter interception to senior Ter States lead to an insurmountable 21-0. Im frustrated, Muschamp said. More than anybody sitting in that stadium. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. FOOTBALL, from page 1 UF Fo otball
