ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator Staff WriterTeam Day Drinking can take a victory lap. Gainesvilles recently changed alcohol laws have caused bars in Midtown to extend their Sunday hours. The citys rules on alcohol, Dec. 15, now allow bars and restaurants to sell alcohol from 7 a.m. until 2 a.m, just like every other day of the week. Keith Benson, manager of O!O Garden Grille, said the new rule will bring in more student business at night than in the morning. The restaurant and bar will now be open until 2 a.m. The Swamp Restaurant, 101 Cantina, Gator City, Balls, Grog House Bar and Grill and Salty Dog Saloon will also be open until 2 a.m. The revised ordinance also allows packaged liquor to be purchased at stores from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. Previously, packaged liquor was not allowed to be sold at all on Sundays, and bars and restaurants could only serve alcohol between 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. Because the new laws took effect on Dec. 18, right as UFs winter break began, some city liquor stores are waiting before they ofMike Collins, manager of Gator Beverage on University Avenue, said he may open the store at 10 a.m instead of 1 p.m, but he wants to wait until business is back to normal.

Standing on the stage after Floridas 24-17 win against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 2, Muschamp kept his part of the celebration succinct. It was perfect. Not necessarily for its brevity, though that was appropriate confetti doesnt jibe with a 7-6 team. Muschamps speech should endure as a memory of this season simply because of how he sounded. To cap a year of screaming at refs, at players, at assistant coaches Muschamps voice was hoarse. For the last four months, Coach Boom has never failed to live up to his reputation, displaying his hair-raising sideline demeanor through both good times and bad. Florida failed to attempt a Hail Mary at the end of the half against the Buckeyes, Muschamp berated freshman quarterback Jacoby Brissett as the team jogged to the locker room.

The documentary is the second in a week seeking to highlight Kim Jong Uns experience in leading North Koreas 1.2 millionstrong military and was aimed at showing that he was in charge of the armed forces long before his father, former leader Kim Jong Il, died of a heart attack last month. The son, who is in his late 20s, has moved swiftly into the role of supreme leader of the people, the ruling Workers Party and the military despite questions abroad about how easily he could assume power with only a few years of grooming behind him. Kim Jong Il, in contrast, had 20 years of training when his father, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, died of a heart attack in 1994.NATIONALHorse left at Ohio Amish-area Walmart needs homeSOUTH RUSSELL, Ohio Wally the Walmart horse is looking for a new home.

Wayne Reitz Union once a year to ensure that students come back to a clean campus for the spring semester. ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterAt the end of the day, David Norton said, his job is all about helping students get the answers. The force that drives research is the desire to answer the burning questions nobody has solved before, he said. And when research leads to the answer, Its just cool. Norton, who has served as associate dean for research in the College of Engineering since 2009, will take over as UFs vice president for research Jan. 30. He will preside over all student and faculty research at UF, from physics to psychology. Norton succeeds Win Phillips, who was named UFs senior vice president and chief Phillips said Nortons personal research, as well as the 11 years he spent as a researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, have prepared him well. He has the energy, experience, drive and wisdom, and were looking forward to his leadership, Phillips said. At Oak Ridge, Norton participated in a wide range of research, often working with physicists, chemists and other scientists. Norton will be putting his own research on hold while he focuses on his administrative duties. Although he said there are no immediate problems on his plate, Norton recognizes that UF is facing budget issues that could restrict research opportunities. However, he said, it doesnt change the fact that there are questions out there that need to be answered.New UF vice president for research takes over Jan. 30 JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterThe University Athletic Association voted to increase the price of a non-student football season ticket to $280 for the seven home games in the 2012 season.

The board postponed a planned increase in booster contributions because of the lagging economy, Gadja said. UAA needed revenue to help offset rising tuition and athlete stipend costs, so the board approved the increase for season tickets. This price increase will yield about $1 million. that this move wont hurt season ticket sales, he said.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 TECHNOLOGY CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterSuppose a UF student were to post a clip from a popular TV show on YouTube. video camera while watching it, which is illegal. If a proposed law is passed in its current state, that decision could be considered a felony and shut down all of YouTube. Grooveshark and other Internet companies are uniting to make sure the proposed law, the Stop Online Piracy Act, is changed or halted. The act, better known as SOPA, is a national bill that could change the regulations for piracy on the Web. The bill is being reviewed in the House of Representatives. Grooveshark, a Gainesville-based music streaming website, has been protesting SOPA alongside Internet companies like Google, Wikipedia and Facebook, according to a list on TechCrunch.com. Grooveshark has a small presence in Washington, D.C., said Paul Geller, Senior Vice President of External Affairs. This allows staff to stay informed of legislation like SOPA and the U.S. Senates version, the Protect IP Act, better known as PIPA. He said SOPA is being pushed at a pace rimental effects on Internet users. Geller said the bill infringes on freedom of speech. Because of that, the bill could be blocked by Internet companies citing the First Amendment and other laws, said Gerald Haskins, UF senior lecturer and Internet law expert. This is a really poorly written bill, and it could be used to prosecute uploaders, downloaders, and anyone like that, he said. Geller and Haskins each pointed out that the bill also carries potential security issues. Computer users who dont want to be limited by SOPA could change their Domain Name Server settings to be outside of American jurisdiction. This means their computers could be susceptible to scam websites that are blocked by the U.S. server. It could bring the Internet to a halt, Haskins said. Geller said Grooveshark is supporting Or egon Sen. Ron Wydens alternative bill, the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act. The bill is available at keepthewebopen.com, and visitors can suggest changes or alternatives. In a statement to The Independent Florida Alligator, local Rep. Cliff Stearns said he will not take a position on SOPA until he sees Committee. In the meantime, Geller said the company is trying to educate lawmakers on the bill. Keivan Zolfaghari, 20-year-old psychology and food resource economics junior, said he learned about SOPA from Tumblr and is planning to write to his congressman about the legislation.

Those without one will not receive full points for reading this column. lectures insightful and, most of all, worth attending. If I were teaching a large class, the only way to assess this would be to compare grades with attendance. Id treat my lectures as episodes of a TV show. For the show to have an audience, it must offer something the audience wants. If few showed up to my class, Id deem my lectures ineffective and work on improving them. Q: Why on Earth would any professor ever require a clicker? A: 1) Because they would never trust student opinions about lecture quality. 2) Because UF already bought and installed all the technology. 3) Obviously wrong answer with big words to trick C-students. 4) To solicit student responses to critical thinking questions. 5) As if a communications junior at UF would know. Times up. Moving on. Taking away a students right to leave or to never show up to a lecture prevents him or her from giving feedback about its quality. The funny thing is that professors claim these infernal contraptions actually increase feedback from students. From an INR2001 syllabus: Lectures will use response cards (clickers) to solicit student responses to critical thinking questions. If this truly were the case, why not use Sakai? Other than requiring a student be in the classroom, clickers are no different. when I took INR2001 this past fall. During a lecture on dictators, my professor left one clicker question until the end of class, stating he wanted to punish anyone who leaves, like the two boys he caught last lecture. To be fair, clickers do offer professors of large classes a method to assess where a class stands in its understanding of certain topics. Though if my professor doesnt care about the data needed to improve his lectures, then he shouldnt care if students attend his lecture. Q: Why require a twentysome-odd-dollar remote when Sakai can do the same thing? A: 1) Because it requires less effort for the professor. 2) Because the professor enjoys fostering student misery. 3) Itll Because UF strongly encourages it. 5) Because the clickers are really meant to take attendance. Times up. (And yes, back row and aisle-sitters, Im saving one question till the end.) Even with all this evidence staring them in the face, both UF administration and professors allow clickers, leaving only students with the means to end this peculiar institution. Just stop buying clickers. Think about it: Q: How can a professor punish a class of clicker-less students? A: 1) Giving them all bad grades. 2) Making clicker points extra credit. 3) Its got to be 3 this time, dude. 4) Sending a long, angry email threatening consequences. 5) Whoa Times up. Crazy, right? Unlike the Syrian government, our professors cannot shoot at us until we stop making trouble. Docking grades looks bad because grades are a representation of student mastery, not a means of exercising power. In the face of mass collective action, professors will have no option other than to fold. The moral here: Protest what you dont like in the classroom. Nail 95 theses to professors doors. Dump their tea into Lake Alice. Until students demand that professors redress the poop out of these grievances, our suffering will continue.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7I hope you all enjoyed the break as much as I did. While we were away, it looks like the horse race for the Republican presidential nomination got even more unusual with the out-of-nowhere surge of Rick Santorum and the evaporation of the previously prominent Newt Gingrich. What interests me the most, however, is the level of support Ron Paul is getting for the White House and what it says about our generation. In 2008, about two-thirds of voters below the age of 30 voted for Barack Obama, myself included. We were tired of the war in Iraq and the presidency of George W. Bush. Most of us wanted a more tolerant nation, and even conser vatives opposed to things like abortion rights and gay marriage spoke about it in a different way than the generation above us. Now, in 2012, with a presidential election on the horizon, we are still in Afit seems that the solution to everything now is to create a new department or agency to create new laws and regulations that can never be fairly and widely administered. W. Bush. It was because he was a big-government conservative. He created a new entitlement program in Medicare Part D, did nothing to trim government spending and pushed the nation into an expensive war that will cost us trillions of dollars and ended up costing thousands of lives. He pushed for a constitutional amendsocietys values through the arm of the government instead of allowing Americans to make their own choices. Ron Paul is the antithesis to George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He is the ultimate anti-government presidential candidate, and a big chunk of our age It creates a message for where the future of conservatism is heading when a candidate who thinks we should be spending trillions less and trimming the military by thousands gets more than 20 percent of the vote in Iowa.

About 10 to 15 bulls will be taken from Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park to be used for breeding, said David Hajos, president of Gateway Farms. The bison will be divided by Gateway Farms, but Hajos declined to name the exact locations. He said the 60 to 70 bison will be rounded up and held until all pregnant females give birth.

Although Ticketmaster disputes the claims, the company agreed in November to settle by offering purchase credits to customers who bought tickets through Ticketmasters website between Oct. 21, 1999 and Oct. 19, 2011.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterJustin Runac was the only independent Student Government senator to get elected in Fall 2011. He is also the only senator who is 38 years old. There was a little bit of an age differ ence; not too big of an issue, he said. So far, the age difference hasnt been a problem. He mostly interacts with graduate students in Senate because most of the people there are new to him. Even though the people are new to Runac, Runac is not new to Senate. He started UF in Fall 2008, pursuing his doctorate degree in the College of Medicines Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences. That semester, he applied for and secured a vacant Senate seat for Family Housing. He continued to serve in Spring and the fall. He won but vacated his seat in Spring 2010 when he went on a leave of absence. My research project in my lab was changing at the time, and it seemed like a good opportunity to take a year away from school, he said. Runac worked during his leave but declined to say more about it. He returned to UF and ran for his old seat in the fall of 2011. Although his Senate seat is currently labeled Family Housing, he represents residents of Graduate and Family Housing. I felt I could make a little bit of a difference, he said. Runac has tried to get on a committee, but he said it is almost impossible for an independent senator. Although political parties have approached him, he said he wants to remain independent. He made it very clear from the beginning that he wanted no involvement with political parties, since he felt they distract from actually helping the constituents you are supposed to represent, former graduate senator Matthew Vernon wrote in an email. Vernon, 27, a former member of the Progress Party, worked with Runac in Runacs second term. Orange & Brew after the fall election results were announced. Vernon said he recognized Runac from previous Senate sessions and knew Runac already understood a lot about SG. Runac worked with former Senate President Ashton Charles during reapportionment meetings to increase graduate student representation, Vernon said. Historically, graduate senators dont ules, he said. In the past, undergraduate senators have argued that they should reapportion those seats to undergraduates. This trend resulted in the malappor tionment that Justin pointed out and was instrumental in eventually rectifying, Vernon said. Still, not enough graduate and inter national students are represented in SG, Runac said. At UF, 34 percent of the student population is graduate and professional students. There are fewer than 15 student senators who are graduate or professional students, he said. Runac said he thinks SG should spend more time considering graduate students issues and needs, such as increasing fees. I hope to introduce legislation this year to reverse this trend, Runac said. Graduate students play a huge role at UF in teaching undergrads, and they should of fees while they are doing so much to help this school.

BUSCARON HOPES TO PUT UF ROBOTICS ON THE MAP. ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterAs a senior in high school, Camilo Buscaron built a robotic arm for a science fair project. Now, as a UF senior, he wants to push robotics further and leave behind a legacy. year senior Buscaron, 22, is the president and founder of Gator Robotics. The clubs goal is to help students learn about robotics, de sign robots, participate in competi tions and showcase their projects. Robotics is a multidisciplinary endeavor, he said. It requires knowledge of electrical, computer and mechanical engineering. I want to do all those. Buscaron grew up in the Do minican Republic and moved to Miami at 15. He developed a love for custom automotives and engi neering at his uncles mechanics shop, and his passion for robotics grew when he created the arm. Once he was at UF, Buscaron pursued robotics, but he said it was hard for inexperienced students to get involved with SubjuGator, an marine. So he found his way into UFs robotics program by offering to help a senior with his thesis proj ect. Luis Alejandro Vega, now 26, mentored Buscaron while the freshman helped him design eight and dance salsa together. Every time he talks, I can feel the passion in what hes saying, Vega said about working with Buscaron. about the project, and he and Vega won the award for the best paper at the southeast conference of the IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. professor and the clubs faculty adviser, said he thinks no one from UF has ever won the award, and the accomplishment is unheard of for a freshman. A few years later, Buscaron founded Gator Robotics to provide students with more opportunities On Dec. 7, the club held a ro onnade with demonstrations that included several robots that club members designed and built last semester. Included in the bunch were In stiGator, an autonomous robot that last summer, and TailGator, a ro bot with a cooler and a grill that the club showcased at a football game. The Blue Rover robot is modeled after the Mars vehicle, Sojourner. Buscaron said Blue Rover could have military and emergency situ ation applications. Buscaron said he commits 15 to 20 hours to the club each week and spends time working on robotics telligence Lab. Buscaron has a vision for UFs robotics program. He said when people think of UF 25 years from now, he hopes theyll think of the best robotics school in the world. Gator Robotics Vice President ects with him is very, very en minded and he lets you work and do things on your own, but he gives you input too. praises.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 THE SUSPECT IS CHARGED WITH SEXUAL BATTERY WITHOUT PHYSICAL FORCE. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterThe son of a longtime UF employee was charged with sexual battery after turning himself in on Christmas morning. Tommie C. Howard III, 25, of Hawthorne, called University Police on Dec. 25 and said he would come into the station. Two days earlier, UPD Chief Linda Stump announced Howard was a suspect in the Nov. 29 rape of a UF student. Howard III was charged with sexual battery without physical force, a second-degree felony, and he is being held at Alachua County Jail. As of press time Sunday, Howard had not made bail, which was set at $150,000. His father, Tommie C. Howard Jr., worked for UF for 40 years before retiring in September 2010, according to The UF Advisor blog. Howard Jr. most recently worked as an ombudsman, a job in which he served as a middleman In June, Howard Jr. became a Hawthorne city commissioner after running unopposed. He did not return the Alligators calls requesting comment about his sons arrest. in the Nov. 29 rape after DNA evidence from the case linked him with a previous battery case, said Maj. Brad Barber, UPD spokesman. The rape victim, a 20-year-old UF student, told police she left 101 Cantina with a man she didnt know on Nov. 29. He raped her in his car somewhere between the bar and campus, and she escaped around 1:45 a.m., according to the police report. A student driving on Fraternity Row noticed the victim being chased by a man. She told the victim to get in her car and took her to Shands at UF. As of press time, Howard III had not been ruled out as a suspect in an attempted rape on Dec. 9 near Sorority time. The victim in that case, also a UF student, was getting in her car parked near Norman Hall and the Campus USA Credit Union at 1200 SW 5th Ave. around 10 p.m. on Dec. 9. A man wearing a ski mask then jumped in the car and held a knife against the victim, according to a police report. After she climbed into the back seat, the victim faked an asthma attack and the suspect ran away. Alligator staff writer Emily Morrow contributed to this report.Rape suspect turns himself in on Christmas DayON CAMPUS CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterThe UF library system may be forced to scale back on staff, resources and libraries if possible budget cuts go through. In the 2012-13 budget review for the George A. Smathers Libraries, library staff proposed budgets for three possible scenar ios: keeping the existing budget, a 5-per cent budget cut and a budget increase. Dean of University Libraries Judy Russell said the universitys Responsibility Center Management committee recommends a budget based on the scenarios provided. that we had a 5-percent cut, she said. But again, you cant really predict that until of the university are. If that cut is made, Russell said the libraries would likely have to lay off several employees and close the Architecture and Fine Arts, Journalism, Music and Education Libraries. Russell said last years budget review proposed the same three scenarios. The RCM committee recommended a 1-percent budget cut, which was enacted. Russell requested to present the librar ies budget review in person, which she also did last year. She said she has not been given a schedule yet for this years presentation.UF libraries propose three budget options for annual review Howard III I would be extremely surprised Judy Russell

Were excited to see what good things God will bring in the new semester, he said. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterSince fall classes ended Dec. 7, UF has used its emergency alert system on two occasions. Both times, the administration was pleased with how quickly text messages were sent to students and employees. UF administration used the emergency system on Dec. 9 to 10 and on Dec. 20, sending a pair of to a company that takes the message and distributes it to every wireless carrier. Then, the message is delivered to phones of students and employees registered with the emergency alert system. Of the four messages delivered in December, the slowest reached the aggregator at 2 minutes, 1 second, said UF Emergency Management Coordinator Kenneth Allen. The fastest message reached it at 1 minute, 52 seconds. The time represents how long it took for the last one or the average time. Looking at it is like looking at a freight train, Allen said. That time is how long it takes the whole train to pass by, not just the front of the train. Allen said he is pleased with the delivery times and doesnt expect any major changes to the system. He said the university is always looking to make tweaks. However, the administration wont change its methods in light of the murder-suicide that happened at Virginia Tech last month. UF has sent 17 messages in the last two years, all of which have been delivered faster than six minutes. The university last changed the emergency alert system in July when the school added Infor maCast software, which allows UF to send a message through several platforms, including email, social media and the schools website, at one time. Previously, an individual message had to be sent to each platform. Students and employees received a message sent at 11:06 p.m. on Dec. 9 after an attempted rape was reported near the Campus USA Credit Union at 1200 SW 5th Ave. A separate pair of messages came on Dec. 20 after a shooting was reported in the Stone Quarters apartment complex at 645 NE Waldo Road, which is about 1.6 miles southwest of east campus. Although the men involved in the shooting had no ties to UF, an emergency message was sent out of an abundance of caution, said UPD spokesreported, the department did not know what the shooter was trying to do or where he was going. In response, UPD surrounded the east campus. campus, though two weeks later, Barber couldnt To increase your chances of quickly receiving an emergency message, you can follow UF Alert on Facebook and Twitter.UF administration pleased with speed of emergency alert system Here is how UFs Emergency Management System works:UF uses a software called InformaCast to send an emergency message through several platforms, including the university website, email, Facebook, etc. That message is sent through InformaCast to Blackboard Connect ED, a vendor that manages UFs text message service. Blackboard Connect ED then sends the message to an aggregator, which delivers the message to every wireless carrier.

DILLMAN JOINS UF STAFF AS NEW STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Floridas next offensive coordinator may already be used to wearing orange and blue just different shades. According to reports, Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease is the frontrunner to take the reins of Floridas offense next season and replace Charlie Weis, who left the Gators for the head coaching gig at Kansas. The Idaho Statesman reported Friday that Pease, ing offense in the nation last season at 44.23 points per game, has left Boise State and is weighing offers from both Florida and Alabama. wide receivers coach and then as an assistant head coach before he was named the Broncos offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach prior to last season. Multiple reports suggest that Pease will meet with coach Nick Saban on Tuesday after Alabama faces LSU for the BCS title tonight in New Orleans. While Pease appears to be the favorite to takeover play-calling duties in Gainesville, he is not the only candidate for the opening. New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is also reportedly in the running for the Gators offensive coordinator job. Unlike Pease, Schottenheimer already has ties to UF, as he played quarterback for Steve Spurrier for three seasons and was Danny Wuerffels backup during the Schottenheimer has served as an assistant coach in the NFL since 2001 and has been the Jets offensive coThe New York Daily News reported Friday that Schottenheimer took his name out of consideration for the Florida job, but ESPNs Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Schottenheimer never removed himself as a candidate. Following Floridas 24-17 win against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl, coach Will Muschamp said he had no timetable for making the new hire and just wants to make the best decision for Florida. Also, interim offensive coordinator Brian White is still in the running, but the Florida Times-Union reported this week that former UF quarterback Kerwin Bell is no longer being considered. Gators hire new strength coach: It didnt take long strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti, who joined Urban Meyers staff at Ohio State last month. The Gators announced Tuesday the hiring of Jeff Dillman, who was the head of physical conditioning at IMG Performance Institute in Bradenton. Im excited to have Jeff join our staff, Muschamp has trained athletes at the highest caliber on every level from high school, to college to the NFL. Dillman worked at IMG since 2009, training college and professional athletes. Prior to that, he served as the strength and conditioning coach at Appalachian State back FCS national titles. He was also on LSUs staff with Muschamp in 2003 when the Tigers won a BCS title. Im a big believer in doing the little things right, Dillman said. Every day we will calculate the right attitude for training. Nothing gets in the way of our goal classroom and in life. Hard work beats talent when talents not working.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 27 WOMENS BASKETBALL JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer cit was trimmed to three, back-toback missed one-and-one attempts by South Carolina gave Florida the chance to complete its comeback. The only problem was the Gamecocks rebounded both shots, dashing the Gators hopes of a successful second-half rally. You have to credit South Carolina for those free-throw rebounds mattering more to them than they did to us, coach Amanda Butler said. There clearly was a breakdown. Its really hard to under stand. The Gators lost to the Gamecocks 49-44 on Sunday in the OConnell Center, dropping their second consecutive Southeastern Conference points short of South Carolina (14-2, The Gamecocks went into the break leading 31-15, scoring 13 points off 14 Gators turnovers. It was a very frustrating game, ure out (include), Why are we starting games so poorly? Im not sure. While UF managed to win the battle on the boards 19-15 in the scored Florida 16-10 in the paint. The Gators luck down low changed after halftime largely due to the play of junior forward Jennifer George. She scored 12 of her 16 points and pulled down eight of her 11 rebounds in the second half. Georges performance which included a season-high six blocks was her eighth consecutive doubledouble. Finish consistently with contact, George said of ways UFs paint play can improve. Even though theyre not calling fouls, George was the Gators lone offensive threat in the post, accounting for 76 percent of the points scored by UFs frontcourt. Center Azania Stewart and for wards Ndidi Madu and Lily Svete three rebounds. (Georges) post partners have got to help her out, Butler said. In particular, we need Azania to step up and make some plays on the offensive end. Butler has maintained throughout the season that due to the nature of her guard-heavy squad, Floridas outside players would need to help crash the boards. Senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley pulled down 10 and six rebounds, respectively, but it was not enough to put the Gators ished with a 39-37 advantage on the glass, including a 16-12 edge on the offensive boards. Weve got to get ourselves second chances on offense, Butler said. Weve got to have more perimeter rebounding other than just from Deana. Florida had several opportunities to complete its comeback late in the second half, but failed partly due to a reliance on outside shooting. George attempted and made just one shot, which she took after rebounding a missed jumper from Allen with 22 seconds left. South Carolinas guard play defensively presented UF struggles in getting the ball to George down the stretch, Butler said. They did a really good job of pressuring the ball and that was certainly what we expected to happen, Butler said. But we just didnt handle it with a lot of composure. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@ alligator.org.And its not just Walker. The whole team is guilty. I think we play different on the road, Kenny Boynton said. I think our chemistry is better at home, instead of on the road. Saying that a team lacks chemistry is a pretty damning assessment, one this team has not necessarily earned. The Gators have shown they can play well in the OConnell Center, where crisp passing and strong decision-making lead to open shots and easy baskets. Theres no reason that chemistry should change on the road. Again, its the same players running the same plays. By that logic, theres no reason the Gators cant get these issues straightened out. And, if you want to look at the issue through Orange and Blue glasses, maybe things arent as bad as they seem. First off, it goes without saying that every team plays better at home than it does on the road. nessee and Rutgers arent powerhouses, but theyre better than every other team Florida has played aside from Arizona, Florida State and maybe Texas A&M. And, in each of the four losses, Florida has been a strange kind of unlucky. Against Syracuse and Ohio State they were legitimately outplayed, but against Rutgers and Tennessee it felt like everything went against them. Rough bounces, bad calls, players like Rutgers Eli Carter making inexplicable, acrobatic, off-balance prayers. And, on the other end, it feels like theres been a lid on ing 32.7 percent on the road and 45.1 percent otherwise. Hes also posted 22 turnovers and just four assists in those four losses, perhaps a product of simple freshman jitters. The sum of it all is that, with only four games to judge, its impossible to say whether Floridas road struggles are an unfortunate anomaly sure to pass or a legitimate probContact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.

Not necessarily for its brevity, though that was appropriate confetti doesnt jibe with a 7-6 team. Muschamps speech should endure as a memory of this season simply because of how he sounded. To cap a year of screaming at refs, at players, at assistant coaches Muschamps voice was hoarse.

The documentary is the second in a week seeking to highlight Kim Jong Uns experience in leading North Koreas 1.2 millionstrong military and was aimed at showing that he was in charge of the armed forces long before his father, former leader Kim Jong Il, died of a heart attack last month. The son, who is in his late 20s, has moved swiftly into the role of supreme leader of the people, the ruling Workers Party and the military despite questions abroad about how easily he could assume power with only a few years of grooming behind him.

He will preside over all student and faculty research at UF, from physics to psychology. Norton succeeds Win Phillips, who was named UFs senior vice president and chief Phillips said Nortons personal research, as well as the 11 years he spent as a researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, have prepared him well. He has the energy, experience, drive and wisdom, and were looking forward to his leadership, Phillips said. At Oak Ridge, Norton participated in a wide range of research, often working with physicists, chemists and other scientists. Norton will be putting his own research on hold while he focuses on his administrative duties. Although he said there are no immediate problems on his plate, Norton recognizes that UF is facing budget issues that could restrict research opportunities. However, he said, it doesnt change the fact that there are questions out there that need to be answered.New UF vice president for research takes over Jan. 30 JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterThe University Athletic Association voted to increase the price of a non-student football season ticket to $280 for the seven home games in the 2012 season.

The board postponed a planned increase in booster contributions because of the lagging economy, Gadja said. UAA needed revenue to help offset rising tuition and athlete stipend costs, so the board approved the increase for season tickets.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 TECHNOLOGY CLARE LENNONAlligator Staff WriterSuppose a UF student were to post a clip from a popular TV show on YouTube. video camera while watching it, which is illegal. If a proposed law is passed in its current state, that decision could be considered a felony and shut down all of YouTube. Grooveshark and other Internet companies are uniting to make sure the proposed law, the Stop Online Piracy Act, is changed or halted. The act, better known as SOPA, is a national bill that could change the regulations for piracy on the Web. The bill is being reviewed in the House of Representatives. Grooveshark, a Gainesville-based music streaming website, has been protesting SOPA alongside Internet companies like Google, Wikipedia and Facebook, according to a list on TechCrunch.com. Grooveshark has a small presence in Washington, D.C., said Paul Geller, Senior Vice President of External Affairs. This allows staff to stay informed of legislation like SOPA and the U.S. Senates version, the Protect IP Act, better known as PIPA. He said SOPA is being pushed at a pace rimental effects on Internet users. Geller said the bill infringes on freedom of speech. Because of that, the bill could be blocked by Internet companies citing the First Amendment and other laws, said Gerald Haskins, UF senior lecturer and Internet law expert. This is a really poorly written bill, and it could be used to prosecute uploaders, downloaders, and anyone like that, he said. Geller and Haskins each pointed out that the bill also carries potential security issues. Computer users who dont want to be limited by SOPA could change their Domain Name Server settings to be outside of American jurisdiction. This means their computers could be susceptible to scam websites that are blocked by the U.S. server. It could bring the Internet to a halt, Haskins said. Geller said Grooveshark is supporting Or egon Sen. Ron Wydens alternative bill, the Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act. The bill is available at keepthewebopen.com, and visitors can suggest changes or alternatives. In a statement to The Independent Florida Alligator, local Rep. Cliff Stearns said he will not take a position on SOPA until he sees Committee. In the meantime, Geller said the company is trying to educate lawmakers on the bill. Keivan Zolfaghari, 20-year-old psychology and food resource economics junior, said he learned about SOPA from Tumblr and is planning to write to his congressman about the legislation.

Those without one will not receive full points for reading this column. lectures insightful and, most of all, worth attending. If I were teaching a large class, the only way to assess this would be to compare grades with attendance. Id treat my lectures as episodes of a TV show. For the show to have an audience, it must offer something the audience wants. If few showed up to my class, Id deem my lectures ineffective and work on improving them. Q: Why on Earth would any professor ever require a clicker? A: 1) Because they would never trust student opinions about lecture quality. 2) Because UF already bought and installed all the technology. 3) Obviously wrong answer with big words to trick C-students. 4) To solicit student responses to critical thinking questions. 5) As if a communications junior at UF would know. Times up. Moving on. Taking away a students right to leave or to never show up to a lecture prevents him or her from giving feedback about its quality. The funny thing is that professors claim these infernal contraptions actually increase feedback from students. From an INR2001 syllabus: Lectures will use response cards (clickers) to solicit student responses to critical thinking questions. If this truly were the case, why not use Sakai? Other than requiring a student be in the classroom, clickers are no different. when I took INR2001 this past fall. During a lecture on dictators, my professor left one clicker question until the end of class, stating he wanted to punish anyone who leaves, like the two boys he caught last lecture. To be fair, clickers do offer professors of large classes a method to assess where a class stands in its understanding of certain topics. Though if my professor doesnt care about the data needed to improve his lectures, then he shouldnt care if students attend his lecture. Q: Why require a twentysome-odd-dollar remote when Sakai can do the same thing? A: 1) Because it requires less effort for the professor. 2) Because the professor enjoys fostering student misery. 3) Itll Because UF strongly encourages it. 5) Because the clickers are really meant to take attendance. Times up. (And yes, back row and aisle-sitters, Im saving one question till the end.) Even with all this evidence staring them in the face, both UF administration and professors allow clickers, leaving only students with the means to end this peculiar institution. Just stop buying clickers. Think about it: Q: How can a professor punish a class of clicker-less students? A: 1) Giving them all bad grades. 2) Making clicker points extra credit. 3) Its got to be 3 this time, dude. 4) Sending a long, angry email threatening consequences. 5) Whoa Times up. Crazy, right? Unlike the Syrian government, our professors cannot shoot at us until we stop making trouble. Docking grades looks bad because grades are a representation of student mastery, not a means of exercising power. In the face of mass collective action, professors will have no option other than to fold. The moral here: Protest what you dont like in the classroom. Nail 95 theses to professors doors. Dump their tea into Lake Alice. Until students demand that professors redress the poop out of these grievances, our suffering will continue.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7I hope you all enjoyed the break as much as I did. While we were away, it looks like the horse race for the Republican presidential nomination got even more unusual with the out-of-nowhere surge of Rick Santorum and the evaporation of the previously prominent Newt Gingrich. What interests me the most, however, is the level of support Ron Paul is getting for the White House and what it says about our generation. In 2008, about two-thirds of voters below the age of 30 voted for Barack Obama, myself included. We were tired of the war in Iraq and the presidency of George W. Bush. Most of us wanted a more tolerant nation, and even conser vatives opposed to things like abortion rights and gay marriage spoke about it in a different way than the generation above us. Now, in 2012, with a presidential election on the horizon, we are still in Afit seems that the solution to everything now is to create a new department or agency to create new laws and regulations that can never be fairly and widely administered. W. Bush. It was because he was a big-government conservative. He created a new entitlement program in Medicare Part D, did nothing to trim government spending and pushed the nation into an expensive war that will cost us trillions of dollars and ended up costing thousands of lives. He pushed for a constitutional amendsocietys values through the arm of the government instead of allowing Americans to make their own choices. Ron Paul is the antithesis to George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He is the ultimate anti-government presidential candidate, and a big chunk of our age It creates a message for where the future of conservatism is heading when a candidate who thinks we should be spending trillions less and trimming the military by thousands gets more than 20 percent of the vote in Iowa.

Four farms put in proposals to remove some of the bison from the parks herd as a part of the Florida Department of Environmental Protections plan to reduce inbreeding. The Florida Park Service awarded the bid to Gateway Farms, LLC, on Dec. 27, but the yet, said Jessica Sims, spokeswoman for the Florida Park Ser vice, in email. About 10 to 15 bulls will be taken from Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park to be used for breeding, said David Hajos, president of Gateway Farms. The bison will be divided by Gateway Farms, but Hajos declined to name the exact locations. He said the 60 to 70 bison will be rounded up and held until all pregnant females give birth. All the newborn males will be castrated and released back onto Paynes Prairie. Hajos said Gateway Farms will be paid $365 for each of the 60 to 70 bison held, including the 10 to 15 it will own.Bison to be removed to prevent inbreeding ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterAfter 12 years of charging fees of up to half the price of a ticket, Ticketmaster will soon be repaying customers to the tune of $45 million over four years. action suit against the company, claiming the processing and UPS delivery fees were excessive and deceptive, according to ticketfeelitigation.com. In essence, what theyre getting them for is charging for services that really werent rendered giving fees for costs that really werent incurred, said UF business law professor Robert Emerson. Although Ticketmaster disputes the claims, the company agreed in November to settle by offering purchase credits to customers who bought tickets through Ticketmasters website between Oct. 21, 1999 and Oct. 19, 2011.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterJustin Runac was the only independent Student Government senator to get elected in Fall 2011. He is also the only senator who is 38 years old. There was a little bit of an age differ ence; not too big of an issue, he said. So far, the age difference hasnt been a problem. He mostly interacts with graduate students in Senate because most of the people there are new to him. Even though the people are new to Runac, Runac is not new to Senate. He started UF in Fall 2008, pursuing his doctorate degree in the College of Medicines Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences. That semester, he applied for and secured a vacant Senate seat for Family Housing. He continued to serve in Spring and the fall. He won but vacated his seat in Spring 2010 when he went on a leave of absence. My research project in my lab was changing at the time, and it seemed like a good opportunity to take a year away from school, he said. Runac worked during his leave but declined to say more about it. He returned to UF and ran for his old seat in the fall of 2011. Although his Senate seat is currently labeled Family Housing, he represents residents of Graduate and Family Housing. I felt I could make a little bit of a difference, he said. Runac has tried to get on a committee, but he said it is almost impossible for an independent senator. Although political parties have approached him, he said he wants to remain independent. He made it very clear from the beginning that he wanted no involvement with political parties, since he felt they distract from actually helping the constituents you are supposed to represent, former graduate senator Matthew Vernon wrote in an email. Vernon, 27, a former member of the Progress Party, worked with Runac in Runacs second term. Orange & Brew after the fall election results were announced. Vernon said he recognized Runac from previous Senate sessions and knew Runac already understood a lot about SG. Runac worked with former Senate President Ashton Charles during reapportionment meetings to increase graduate student representation, Vernon said. Historically, graduate senators dont ules, he said. In the past, undergraduate senators have argued that they should reapportion those seats to undergraduates. This trend resulted in the malappor tionment that Justin pointed out and was instrumental in eventually rectifying, Vernon said. Still, not enough graduate and inter national students are represented in SG, Runac said. At UF, 34 percent of the student population is graduate and professional students. There are fewer than 15 student senators who are graduate or professional students, he said. Runac said he thinks SG should spend more time considering graduate students issues and needs, such as increasing fees. I hope to introduce legislation this year to reverse this trend, Runac said. Graduate students play a huge role at UF in teaching undergrads, and they should of fees while they are doing so much to help this school.

BUSCARON HOPES TO PUT UF ROBOTICS ON THE MAP. ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterAs a senior in high school, Camilo Buscaron built a robotic arm for a science fair project. Now, as a UF senior, he wants to push robotics further and leave behind a legacy. year senior Buscaron, 22, is the president and founder of Gator Robotics. The clubs goal is to help students learn about robotics, de sign robots, participate in competi tions and showcase their projects. Robotics is a multidisciplinary endeavor, he said. It requires knowledge of electrical, computer and mechanical engineering. I want to do all those. Buscaron grew up in the Do minican Republic and moved to Miami at 15. He developed a love for custom automotives and engi neering at his uncles mechanics shop, and his passion for robotics grew when he created the arm. Once he was at UF, Buscaron pursued robotics, but he said it was hard for inexperienced students to get involved with SubjuGator, an marine. So he found his way into UFs robotics program by offering to help a senior with his thesis proj ect. Luis Alejandro Vega, now 26, mentored Buscaron while the freshman helped him design eight and dance salsa together. Every time he talks, I can feel the passion in what hes saying, Vega said about working with Buscaron. about the project, and he and Vega won the award for the best paper at the southeast conference of the IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. professor and the clubs faculty adviser, said he thinks no one from UF has ever won the award, and the accomplishment is unheard of for a freshman. A few years later, Buscaron founded Gator Robotics to provide students with more opportunities On Dec. 7, the club held a ro onnade with demonstrations that included several robots that club members designed and built last semester. Included in the bunch were In stiGator, an autonomous robot that last summer, and TailGator, a ro bot with a cooler and a grill that the club showcased at a football game. The Blue Rover robot is modeled after the Mars vehicle, Sojourner. Buscaron said Blue Rover could have military and emergency situ ation applications. Buscaron said he commits 15 to 20 hours to the club each week and spends time working on robotics telligence Lab. Buscaron has a vision for UFs robotics program. He said when people think of UF 25 years from now, he hopes theyll think of the best robotics school in the world.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 THE SUSPECT IS CHARGED WITH SEXUAL BATTERY WITHOUT PHYSICAL FORCE. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterThe son of a longtime UF employee was charged with sexual battery after turning himself in on Christmas morning. Tommie C. Howard III, 25, of Hawthorne, called University Police on Dec. 25 and said he would come into the station. Two days earlier, UPD Chief Linda Stump announced Howard was a suspect in the Nov. 29 rape of a UF student. Howard III was charged with sexual battery without physical force, a second-degree felony, and he is being held at Alachua County Jail. As of press time Sunday, Howard had not made bail, which was set at $150,000. His father, Tommie C. Howard Jr., worked for UF for 40 years before retiring in September 2010, according to The UF Advisor blog. Howard Jr. most recently worked as an ombudsman, a job in which he served as a middleman In June, Howard Jr. became a Hawthorne city commissioner after running unopposed. He did not return the Alligators calls requesting comment about his sons arrest. in the Nov. 29 rape after DNA evidence from the case linked him with a previous battery case, said Maj. Brad Barber, UPD spokesman. The rape victim, a 20-year-old UF student, told police she left 101 Cantina with a man she didnt know on Nov. 29. He raped her in his car somewhere between the bar and campus, and she escaped around 1:45 a.m., according to the police report. A student driving on Fraternity Row noticed the victim being chased by a man. She told the victim to get in her car and took her to Shands at UF. As of press time, Howard III had not been ruled out as a suspect in an attempted rape on Dec. 9 near Sorority time. The victim in that case, also a UF student, was getting in her car parked near Norman Hall and the Campus USA Credit Union at 1200 SW 5th Ave. around 10 p.m. on Dec. 9.

In the 2012-13 budget review for the George A. Smathers Libraries, library staff proposed budgets for three possible scenar ios: keeping the existing budget, a 5-per cent budget cut and a budget increase. Dean of University Libraries Judy Russell said the universitys Responsibility Center Management committee recommends a budget based on the scenarios provided. that we had a 5-percent cut, she said. But again, you cant really predict that until of the university are. If that cut is made, Russell said the libraries would likely have to lay off several employees and close the Architecture and Fine Arts, Journalism, Music and Education Libraries. Russell said last years budget review proposed the same three scenarios. The RCM committee recommended a 1-percent budget cut, which was enacted. Russell requested to present the librar ies budget review in person, which she also did last year. She said she has not been given a schedule yet for this years presentation.UF libraries propose three budget options for annual review Howard III I would be extremely surprised Judy Russell

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 17 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffMass on the Grass UF Alum Andrew Gordon and fellow Gator Christian Life members play guitars Sunday afternoon on the Plaza of the Americas. Were excited to see what good things God will bring in the new semester, he said. TYLER JETTAlligator Staff WriterSince fall classes ended Dec. 7, UF has used its emergency alert system on two occasions. Both times, the administration was pleased with how quickly text messages were sent to students and employees. UF administration used the emergency system on Dec. 9 to 10 and on Dec. 20, sending a pair of to a company that takes the message and distributes it to every wireless carrier. Then, the message is delivered to phones of students and employees registered with the emergency alert system. Of the four messages delivered in December, the slowest reached the aggregator at 2 minutes, 1 second, said UF Emergency Management Coordinator Kenneth Allen. The fastest message reached it at 1 minute, 52 seconds. The time represents how long it took for the last one or the average time. Looking at it is like looking at a freight train, Allen said. That time is how long it takes the whole train to pass by, not just the front of the train. Allen said he is pleased with the delivery times and doesnt expect any major changes to the system. He said the university is always looking to make tweaks. However, the administration wont change its methods in light of the murder-suicide that happened at Virginia Tech last month. UF has sent 17 messages in the last two years, all of which have been delivered faster than six minutes. The university last changed the emergency alert system in July when the school added Infor maCast software, which allows UF to send a message through several platforms, including email, social media and the schools website, at one time. Previously, an individual message had to be sent to each platform. Students and employees received a message sent at 11:06 p.m. on Dec. 9 after an attempted rape was reported near the Campus USA Credit Union at 1200 SW 5th Ave. A separate pair of messages came on Dec. 20 after a shooting was reported in the Stone Quarters apartment complex at 645 NE Waldo Road, which is about 1.6 miles southwest of east campus. Although the men involved in the shooting had no ties to UF, an emergency message was sent out of an abundance of caution, said UPD spokesreported, the department did not know what the shooter was trying to do or where he was going. In response, UPD surrounded the east campus. campus, though two weeks later, Barber couldnt To increase your chances of quickly receiving an emergency message, you can follow UF Alert on Facebook and Twitter.UF administration pleased with speed of emergency alert system Here is how UFs Emergency Management System works:UF uses a software called InformaCast to send an emergency message through several platforms, including the university website, email, Facebook, etc. That message is sent through InformaCast to Blackboard Connect ED, a vendor that manages UFs text message service. Blackboard Connect ED then sends the message to an aggregator, which delivers the message to every wireless carrier.

18, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 AP PhotoCurrent Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer (right), who is reportedly in the running for UFs vacancy at offensive coordinator, talks to quarterback Mark Sanchez (6) on Jan. 1. DILLMAN JOINS UF STAFF AS NEW STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH. TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Floridas next offensive coordinator may already be used to wearing orange and blue just different shades. According to reports, Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease is the frontrunner to take the reins of Floridas offense next season and replace Charlie Weis, who left the Gators for the head coaching gig at Kansas. The Idaho Statesman reported Friday that Pease, ing offense in the nation last season at 44.23 points per game, has left Boise State and is weighing offers from both Florida and Alabama. wide receivers coach and then as an assistant head coach before he was named the Broncos offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach prior to last season. Multiple reports suggest that Pease will meet with coach Nick Saban on Tuesday after Alabama faces LSU for the BCS title tonight in New Orleans. While Pease appears to be the favorite to takeover play-calling duties in Gainesville, he is not the only candidate for the opening. New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is also reportedly in the running for the Gators offensive coordinator job. Unlike Pease, Schottenheimer already has ties to UF, as he played quarterback for Steve Spurrier for three seasons and was Danny Wuerffels backup during the Schottenheimer has served as an assistant coach in the NFL since 2001 and has been the Jets offensive coThe New York Daily News reported Friday that Schottenheimer took his name out of consideration for the Florida job, but ESPNs Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Schottenheimer never removed himself as a candidate. Following Floridas 24-17 win against Ohio State in the Gator Bowl, coach Will Muschamp said he had no timetable for making the new hire and just wants to make the best decision for Florida. Also, interim offensive coordinator Brian White is still in the running, but the Florida Times-Union reported this week that former UF quarterback Kerwin Bell is no longer being considered. Gators hire new strength coach: It didnt take long strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti, who joined Urban Meyers staff at Ohio State last month. The Gators announced Tuesday the hiring of Jeff Dillman, who was the head of physical conditioning at IMG Performance Institute in Bradenton. Im excited to have Jeff join our staff, Muschamp has trained athletes at the highest caliber on every level from high school, to college to the NFL. Dillman worked at IMG since 2009, training college and professional athletes. Prior to that, he served as the strength and conditioning coach at Appalachian State back FCS national titles. He was also on LSUs staff with Muschamp in 2003 when the Tigers won a BCS title. Im a big believer in doing the little things right, Dillman said. Every day we will calculate the right attitude for training. Nothing gets in the way of our goal classroom and in life. Hard work beats talent when talents not working.

See story, page 18. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFreshman Brad Beal (23) has been mired in a slump, shooting 29.8 percent in his last four games. UF lost two of those contests.

Now, it is Brad Beals turn. down right now, Boynton said. I school you shot so well and aver aged so many points that its just different. As perhaps the most highlytouted guard recruit Florida has ever landed, the 6-foot-3, 207 pound Beal has dealt with high expectations all season long. a Gators uniform, Beal rose to his His three Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week honors are the most of any league rookie. But when it came time for his acat Tennessee, Beal landed with a dud. scored nine points and was 4 for 12 3-pointers. Hes a freshman. Hes going to have ups and downs, Donovan said. Hes going to have growing pains. Its part of the growth and the development process for him. honor following a 21-point per formance against Florida State, Beals game has spiraled downward in Floridas past four contests. UF lost two of those games at Rutgers and at Tennessee. During his slump, Beal has hit just 29.8 percent of 47 shots. He has also seen his decision making slip with 14 turnovers to nine assists. If theres one thing that Id like something again that hes got to get Donovan has referred to Beal as the most advanced freshman he has the young guard with a large workload early this season. While Beal is now leading Florida in turnovers with an average of on to play the most minutes on the and he leads the Gators in defensive Hes got to go through it, Donovan said. Hes got to learn. As good and as talented as he is, hes going to have those kind of ups and downs. Though Beal has hit just 31.4 per cent of his threes, the lowest average of any Gator with more than one atsettles in at the college level. (I tell him to) keep his head on, Boynton said. Theres gonna come a game, I cant tell you which where Brads gonna shoot it well, with him. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org.Beal working through freshman slumpEND OF GREGULATIONThere are numerous stats that illustrate Floridas road woes this season, story. 69 turnovers in road losses to Ohio State, sists and 119 turnovers in its 12 wins, each of which came in the state of Florida. On the road, Florida has shot 42.9 per cent and 37.1 percent from 3-point range. Otherwise, the Gators are shooting 48.9 dropped off in enemy territory. Outside the state, the Gators allow opponents to shoot 46.6 percent, despite holding teams to 40.3 percent in 12 wins. something much, much simpler. And its something that the essarily say. Its comfort. To some extent the The Gators run the same offense on the road as at home screens and high-low post action. But when UF has to operate away from home, its just different.

MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 27 WOMENS BASKETBALL JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer cit was trimmed to three, back-toback missed one-and-one attempts by South Carolina gave Florida the chance to complete its comeback. The only problem was the Gamecocks rebounded both shots, dashing the Gators hopes of a successful second-half rally. You have to credit South Carolina for those free-throw rebounds mattering more to them than they did to us, coach Amanda Butler said. There clearly was a breakdown. Its really hard to under stand. The Gators lost to the Gamecocks 49-44 on Sunday in the OConnell Center, dropping their second consecutive Southeastern Conference points short of South Carolina (14-2, The Gamecocks went into the break leading 31-15, scoring 13 points off 14 Gators turnovers. It was a very frustrating game, ure out (include), Why are we starting games so poorly? Im not sure. While UF managed to win the battle on the boards 19-15 in the scored Florida 16-10 in the paint. The Gators luck down low changed after halftime largely due to the play of junior forward Jennifer George. She scored 12 of her 16 points and pulled down eight of her 11 rebounds in the second half. Georges performance which included a season-high six blocks was her eighth consecutive doubledouble. Finish consistently with contact, George said of ways UFs paint play can improve. Even though theyre not calling fouls, George was the Gators lone offensive threat in the post, accounting for 76 percent of the points scored by UFs frontcourt. Center Azania Stewart and for wards Ndidi Madu and Lily Svete three rebounds. (Georges) post partners have got to help her out, Butler said. In particular, we need Azania to step up and make some plays on the offensive end. Butler has maintained throughout the season that due to the nature of her guard-heavy squad, Floridas outside players would need to help crash the boards. Senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley pulled down 10 and six rebounds, respectively, but it was not enough to put the Gators ished with a 39-37 advantage on the glass, including a 16-12 edge on the offensive boards. Weve got to get ourselves second chances on offense, Butler said. Weve got to have more perimeter rebounding other than just from Deana. Florida had several opportunities to complete its comeback late in the second half, but failed partly due to a reliance on outside shooting. George attempted and made just one shot, which she took after rebounding a missed jumper from Allen with 22 seconds left. South Carolinas guard play defensively presented UF struggles in getting the ball to George down the stretch, Butler said. They did a really good job of pressuring the ball and that was certainly what we expected to happen, Butler said. But we just didnt handle it with a lot of composure. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@ alligator.org.And its not just Walker. The whole team is guilty. I think we play different on the road, Kenny Boynton said. I think our chemistry is better at home, instead of on the road. Saying that a team lacks chemistry is a pretty damning assessment, one this team has not necessarily earned. The Gators have shown they can play well in the OConnell Center, where crisp passing and strong decision-making lead to open shots and easy baskets. Theres no reason that chemistry should change on the road. Again, its the same players running the same plays. By that logic, theres no reason the Gators cant get these issues straightened out. And, if you want to look at the issue through Orange and Blue glasses, maybe things arent as bad as they seem. First off, it goes without saying that every team plays better at home than it does on the road. nessee and Rutgers arent powerhouses, but theyre better than every other team Florida has played aside from Arizona, Florida State and maybe Texas A&M. And, in each of the four losses, Florida has been a strange kind of unlucky. Against Syracuse and Ohio State they were legitimately outplayed, but against Rutgers and Tennessee it felt like everything went against them. Rough bounces, bad calls, players like Rutgers Eli Carter making inexplicable, acrobatic, off-balance prayers. And, on the other end, it feels like theres been a lid on ing 32.7 percent on the road and 45.1 percent otherwise. Hes also posted 22 turnovers and just four assists in those four losses, perhaps a product of simple freshman jitters. The sum of it all is that, with only four games to judge, its impossible to say whether Floridas road struggles are an unfortunate anomaly sure to pass or a legitimate probContact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org.
