There were plenty of regular shovels around. But what they needed was a larger version with a scoop that can push a cubic foot of snow or better at a time. We will be shipping 72 shovels to Alaska by plane tomorrow to help, said Genevieve Gagne, product manager at the shovels maker, Quebec, Canada-based Garant. The new shovels cost about $50 each, and the city is paying for them with its emergency funds. Since Nov. 1, storms have dropped 176 inches of snow and more than 44 inches of rain on the town, about 150 miles southwest of Anchorage. Temperatures warmed over night, and residents awoke to standing water because of stoppedup drains. The rain also made the existing snow heavier. The warmer temperatures about 35 degrees midday Wednesday brought another hazard to the Prince William Sound community of 2,200 people: avalanche danger. Theres one road leading out, and it was closed though it could be opened for emergency vehicles. So far, four commercial buildings and two homes have been damaged from snow accumulation on roofs. A 24-unit apartment complex also had to be evacuated. The short-term forecast doesnt hold any good news. Theres more snow on the way, another 5-7 inches of it.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 POLITICS SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterMost UF students see themselves as Gators, but members of one group identify with an elephant. With the Republican presidential primaries under way, the UF College Republicans are bringing the issues a little closer to home for students. The club is holding mock elections tonight at 5 p.m. in Room 355 at the Reitz Union, said Katy Melchiorre, the clubs vice chair. semester. As a group, the club will not endorse any one nominee, but members will discuss the pros and cons of each candidate. We have a bunch of individuals who support Romneys, Santorums and Pauls campaigns, said for College Republicans. Pesek, a 19-year-old religion and political science sophomore, said during the meeting the members will discuss the results from the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. They will also discuss why some former candidates dropped out of the race, he said. In the Iowa Republican Caucus, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney beat out former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Romney also pulled in the most votes in the New Hampshire primary, with Texas Rep. Ron Paul coming in second. Club president Ryan Garcia, a 21-year-old economics and history junior, said he was not surprised by the Iowa caucus results. It went as expected, he said. But I was surprised at how close the margin was between the candidates. Throughout the semester, the College Republicans will be holding events related to the primaries. Melchiorre, a 20-year-old political science and telecommunications junior, said club members will set up a table on the Reitz Union North Lawn on Jan. 31, the day of the Flor ida primaries. They will have infor mation about each candidate and will encourage registered Republicans to vote, she wrote in an email. Every election year were always really busy, Pesek said. The group encourages individuals to work on campaigns for their candidates until one is chosen. Pesek said the club will not hold a debate because the members dont We are all Republicans, he said.

two letters to President Barack Obama and one to the EPA, urging it to approve and begin the testing. From the human plight of those living near the site, this is a very important step, said Paula DeLaney, Alachua County commissioner. But part of our responsibility is to keep pushing and keep pressing these issues. The EPA sent out approximately 400 letters this week to tenants around the site, located off Northwest 23rd Avenue, asking permission to collect dust samples from their homes, according to a press release. Thirty homes will be chosen, 15 of which will be close to the plant. The other 15 will be about two miles away. Dust will be collected from each home starting in March. Dioxin levels will then be compared between the closer houses and the houses that are farther away. Unlike with soil and water, there is no state or federal acceptable standard of dioxin in dust, said Stephen Roberts, director of the UF Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology, who also worked on the plan. There is no clarity as to how high dioxin levels must go to predictably produce health effects, Roberts said. It is a controversial issue in science. in dioxin levels between homes neighboring the plant and those farther away to show the impact of the sites contaminants. Some residents near the Superfund site are happy the EPA decided to conduct the tests. However, because of false information given to them in the past by government agencies, some are still skeptical. I applaud them for doing something, but this is a very small step, said Maria Parsons, a resident who lives three blocks from the site. I will be watching and analyzing what theyre doing every step of the way. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012Aundre Larrow / Alligator StaffSilver Spray Winston Cunningham, 17, gets his hair sprayed silver by Chris Shepherd, 17, to complete his robot ensemble for a performance at the dedication ceremony for the Florida Innovation Hub at UF.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Editorial about interior design licensing was misinformed I am very disappointed to read the misinformed ar ticle regarding interior design. As someone who works for Shands in the facilities development department I can attest to the importance of an educated and licensed interior designer for commercial designs. The licensing laws have nothing to do with residential design; please check the facts before publishing. Paige WalkerMore work needs to be done for homeless This letter is in response to Adrianna Paidas article about the requirement for police clearance imposed on the poor and homeless to be allowed to use services at St. Francis House homeless shelter and dining hall. This requirement was imposed at the same time the 130 meal limit ordinance was enacted, but the police clearance requirement was not enforced until the meal limit was lifted. For two and a half years, they were forced to turn away thousands of hungry people. Over the last two years, the National Coalition for the Homeless in Washington D.C. published its list of the limit was seen as a human rights violation. Fewer people are being fed now than during the time when the meal limit was in effect. A large number of the homeless have been charged with having an open container or sleeping in a public place. Just where are they supposed to go? This sounds like criminalization of homelessness. We, the citizens of Gainesville, must continue on our own or with others to feed the hungry children, pregnant women, veterans and people with physical and mental disabilities. It has been said you can tell a great deal about a society by how it treats its most vulnerable citizens. Lets step up and feed the hungry, destitute and homeless. We are a much better city than we are showing the world. Pat Fitzpatrick UF graduate How is it that an individual such as Mitt Romney could not have had better luck as a presidential candidate and still struggle? In spite of multiple candidates reaching the apex of ratings and popularity, only Romney has endured and somehow stood above the fray. Despite this, he faces distrust among conservative Republicans for his mixed record on a number of Through more than 40 years of senatorial service, Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., only faced one candithe time, Romney supported a womans choice in abor tion, bragged about standing against Reagans economic policy, supported the Brady Bill on gun restriction and was against school prayer. Romney has always been a Republican, but his consistency as a conservative is questionable. Even in the successful gubernatorial election in 2002, Romney maintained some of these viewpoints. He supported maintaining the Massachusetts status quo on abortion. According to Massachusetts Institute of Technologys oldest newspaper, The Tech, Romney declared, I will not change any provisions in Massachusetts prochoice laws. He now maintains his commitment to repealing Roe v. Wade. On job creation, Business Insider reported that Massachusetts only averaged 1.4 percent growth during his time as governor, also supported by USA Today. The national average in the time of Romneys term was 5.3 per cent, and the independent think tank MassINC reported a ranking of 49th in job creation from 2001-07. This is also excluding the health care reform signed in 2006. Romney now runs against a health mandate, suggesting that the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority is much different than a federal Part of Romneys success in this election has been his uninspired opponents. He has always been the most political networks. Yet, a Gallup poll from the GOP ballot as of Jan. 9 shows a ranking of 30 percent among likely voters. From Nov. 6 through Dec. 25, Romney did not break 25 percent until after Christmas. When the numbers returned from the Iowa Republican Caucus, Romney bested Santorum by only eight votes. This is bewildering considering that Romney managed to have his shining moment in New Hampshire, dominating with 40 percent of the vote. This mohis opponents will still continue and hammer on Romneys record. I still maintain that Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana would have been the best candidate for Republicans to run in 2012. He has the blessings of a strong economic policy through low unemployment and balanced budgets, social policies favored by conservatives, and the fact that he was a two-term governor. The Republican party as of the last 30 years has been the party of Reagan and will only embrace Romney at arms length. Romney is more like the former governor of New York, George Pataki. Both are moderate Repubence. Romney has been both politically savvy and clever to avoid drawing attention to his Mormonism, sure to draw unease from Catholics and Christian evangelicals. vative Republicans, and the albatross of his record remains his largest liability. Guillermo R. Pradieu is an English sophomore at UF.Romneys conservatism questionableColumn Although I am sure the last thing you want to read about on a cold winter day is the impending end of fun as we know it, bear with me today as I play the role of Debbie Downer. Some of you have already heard about the proposed bill attacking Internet rights in the United States; I hope those of you who are already aware have signed the many circulating petitions and acted out against it. The bill I am referring to is called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), and it was introduced in October by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas. so-cleverly-titled bill will not stop piracy at all. I would like to humbly state that piracy is not a problem. My example is one per son: Justin Bieber, the death of music. We are expected to pay more than a dollar for his mediocre music that becomes outdated in a day. This is nonsense, because he makes plenty of money for his work by going on tour. His fans should be able to enjoy his music for free if you can possibly enjoy it. Now that I am done ranting about the non-existent piracy problem, let me tackle why SOPA is unnecessary. SOPAs wording is far too vague and takes away consumers rights to express themselves and share music with friends. Under SOPA, the ever-so-popular trend of performing covers of favor ite artists music could be deemed illegal. For a website like YouTube, owned by Google, to host such a video would also be illegal, and grounds for the government to gradually shut down sites dependent on user-generated content The same could happen to Facebook and other socialnetworking sites like they expect us to have real-life friends. In all seriousness, this bill cannot be allowed to pass. Many of the companies this bill could hurt do agree with SOPAs initial goal of ending piracy, but killing creativity and individual expression is not a price they are willing to pay. In a New York Times advertisement posted by many leading social-networking sites, including but not limited to Facebook, Google and Twitter, the companies stated they agreed with the premise ecution. Unfortunately, the bill as drafted would expose lawabiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new and uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites. I ask all of you to call your local representatives for your hometown. Ask them to stand up against this insanely careless and poorly written bill. If we all do this, we may have the privilege of avoiding the death of the Internet, along with our individuality, creativity and our right to express ourselves.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9From the University of Michigan to the Broadway stagething amazing and its a good idea to remember that! In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Criss said that the cool thing is its not us versus you; theres no kind of separation.Totally Awesome Tip #2: Do what you know. In a pop culture-fueled world, there is always a surplus of fandoms. For StarKid, continuing its work can rely heavily on its fan base. Our marketing team is Twitter and teenage girls telling their friends, said co-founder Brian Holden in an interview with Variety. When an audience is known, its easier to appeal to it once its interests are piqued; theres a reason why many successes follow a formula. However, that isnt to say breaking free from repetition isnt out of the question in fact, many encourage it! Even Criss broke through the mold and began to indulge in new entertainment options. He still remains part of StarKid, appearing with them on multiple stops of the groups recent SPACE tour whenever he could. No matter what, the StarKids stay true to themselves and to their fans, and theres no going wrong with that. Totally Awesome Tip #3: Be fearless, but be smart about it.Three-hour long musicals about insects and talking genitalia (respectively) arent the usual Broadway fare. However, StarKid has fearlessly taken these topics and turned them into beloved productions that fans quote and sing repeatedly. Even their magical journey into the musical world of Harry Potter took guts: They were at risk of angering a massive fandom with any potential mistake. This bravery didnt come without precautions. As an article by Christopher Borrelli in the Chicago Tribune assured, the group publicly respected the Harry Potter franchise, owned by Warner Bros., by acknowledging that the franchise was not just their own. StarKid knew when to take provisions and how to use that to their advantage, which led to them branching out from the Potter franchise to encompass a variety of stage topics. Groups like StarKid are one of a kind, never to be replicated. However, the groups success is something that can be shared with any aspiring dreamer. The mixture of acknowledging a starting point, maintaining a relative focus and keeping a courageous attitude allows not only StarKid to continue to rise, but inspires StarKids-to-be and the like to pursue their dreams throughout any galaxy. STARKID, from page 8Photos by Matthias Clamer JOE UONGAvenue WriterComedian Louis C.K., 44, played a million-dollar social experiment with his fans last month: see how much money he could make from putting out a new stand-up comedy special that was free from digital restrictions and easy to buy at the lowest price possible. C.K.s special, Louis C.K.: Live at the Beacon Theater, was launched for purchase on his website Dec. 10. Knowing that it would be extremely easy to illegally download the special from various websites in its current format, C.K. said: Consider this: I made this video extremely easy to use against well-informed advice. I was told that it would be easier to torrent the way I made it, but I chose to do it this way anyway. Much to C.K.s satisfaction, his fans did come through for him, and his experiment was wildly successful. C.K. stated that sales revenue covered the entirety of his $250,000 production costs within 12 hours of releasing his special to the public. Also, 12 days after its release, C.K. sold more than 200,000 copies of the special. Louis C.K.

KAY BEAAvenue WriterCall me cornball, but I love the holiday baggage that carries from lateNovember through early-January. Im one of those people who devour the spirit of the season, as if it were some sort of delicious, joy-regenerative side dish that accompanies the Thanksgiving tur key. Sending cards, baking cookies, watching cartoon specials, wrapping witty-yetsentimentally-personalized gifts name anything traditional that has to do with the concluding six weeks of the year, and Im all over it. Now, my reason for mentioning this is not to attempt torture by igniting festive yearning in your hearts; I bring up my interest in the holidays because 2011s were probably the worst I have ever experienced. Folks, I didnt even send cards this year. This really pisses me off. can relate to the following statement: What the hell was up with the Fall 2011 semester? I literally had to train my body to forget sleep was an option, suggesting instead that copious amounts of caffeine would be optimal for my health. This did wonders for my mood. Feliz Navidad? Pfff whatever! Lets just say that there were numerous moments in which I asked myself, Why am I in school again? What is the point? and immediately resolved upon turning in my last term paper. Oh accomplishment, how dysfunctional ye be. Next, the topic of money comes to mind. I am going to reveal a little secret to you readers: I am totally broke and worked two part-time jobs in addition to going to grad school. Despite this, I cant seem to reserve a dime even if it meant saving my hide. Maybe this has to do with the fact that the ratio between wages paid and the costs of life are so unfairly skewed even admit that one of my jobs is in a retail environment that hooks up employees with generous discounts and I still cant afford a stitch on the clearance shelf. This season, Everclears I Will Buy You a New Life felt more relevant than Bing Crosbys White Christmas, a disheartening truth that discloses moneys power. prit that crushed my holiday cheer: I got dumped. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, your weekly sex and relationship advice columnist has been kicked to the curb by her adorablytattooed, guitar-slinging boyfriend of the last few months. As someone who has had three serious, live-in, big-love boyfriends in her past, plus a hefty number of short-term on from this ex would not be emotionally consuming. I was wrong. The truth is, as I was dishing out columns last semester, I wrote from a POV of a happy, nostalgic one who remembered the woes of singledom but who was removed from its midst. Now, as Spring 2012 rolls in, I am faced with the daunting task of talking dirty while not getting laid. And to top it all off, my wonderful co-writer has also moved on to greener pastures. (Jake, Im genuinely happy for you, but you are missed!) I know that many of you probably believe admitting defeat is a sign of weakness, but I have to say that heartbreak during the holidays is crippling. Im little scared of what will unfold in these pages in the next few months. Fortunately, I will also say that a change of scenery and the company of family is an excellent remedy for mending bitterness. out the window of the airplane, watching the ground below grow smaller in the asthat I had an entire row of seats to myself, no strangers infringing upon my personal space. Feeling comfortable in my autonomy and excited for the events to come, it ocing solo was not to be scorned but rather something to be cherished. 10, ALLIGATOR New semester, new beginnings

Thomas NassifColumnisttnassif@alligator.org At the end of 2011, I was more wrapped up in end-of-theyear lists than ever before. a list of my own for the publication I write for and also keeping track of bands that I work with, hoping to see their records receive attention across the Web. At the end of any year, making your best-of lists causes ego-stroking to develop to a gross level. The fact that people will actually stare at a list of my favorite records and write me angry comments about why I Am the Avalanche wasnt higher on my list or why Red City mind-blowing to me. Doesnt the Internet give them things to do? Pictures of cats to look at? We also saw the future of music-listening become the present last year. Amazons Cloud Drive, Googles beta of its Google Music platform, Spotify, Rdio and Apples iCloud all provided us a glimpse into what will become the norm of listening to music. Spotify, Rdio and other music subscription services are paving the way for boundless music listening. Basically, instead of paying $10 for a CD in a record store (haha), or $10 on iTunes or even $0 to illegally download it,listeners nowjust pay to have access to a library of millions of songs available to stream at tips.Since its available on your smartphone, and since you can plug your smartphone into your car, Spotify and Rdio basically eliminated the need 2012. Your music is with you everywhere you go, its just not actually with you anymore. Apple took a different approach, offering the iCloud and iTunes Match to music fans. For those who still want to own their music, cloud and then listen to those songs from their iPhone or any computer with the Internet pretty much anywhere in America, more or less. new music-listening platforms, but 2012 should see the launch of newand-improved user interfaces. Soon, music consumers will be able to legally listen to all the music they want for a lower price than ever. The Horrible Crowes Elsie was my runaway album of the year. Its the side project of Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem, and hes the only soul singer left in America, I think. The Wonder Years Suburbia Ive Given You All and Now Im Nothing was my favorite poppunk record; it was the only record in that genre that really stood out as an instant classic for me. Frank Turners England Keep My Bones took the singer/songwriter title for me, and Red City Radios The Dangers Of Standing Still was the best punk rock album I heard last year. They are all available on Spotify and, Im sure, a variety of torrent sites for your perusal. Lets hope 2012 can match 2011 in the music industry. Ill be listening.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 PATRICK HARTAvenue WriterA new semester is upon us, and that means a new season of television shows are here to distract us from said semester. A lot of airtime opened up for this spring, and nine new comedies have been approved. With all your favorite shows still on, there may be only time to give one or two new shows a try, so Ive spent countless hours analyzing all the new shows, sitting through the funny moments and the painfully not-funny moments. I have compiled a guide of what to watch and what to pass over without a second thought.Sure To Be Funny I Just Want My Pants Back (MTV Thursdays, 11 p.m.): On the surface, I Just Want My Pants Back seems to fit into the typical MTV scripted show. Lead character Jason gets his heart stolen by a one-night stand (who, of course, left wearing his pants) and now is on an never-ending quest to find her again, leading to adventures involving sex, alcohol and living the poor, single life. While the premise is simple and overdone, I can only describe the sneak peeks and trailers in one word: cool. It doesnt look incredibly funny (or even moderately funny), but, like the recently canceled How To Make It In America, Pants replaces jokes and humor with drinking games, midnight block parties and, as I mentioned before, lots and lots of sex. The show wont match the smarts and wit of any of the elite comedy currently on television, but it will definitely find an audience on MTV, and it may just be the perfect show to watch before going out and making mistakes shows seems to be all about. House of Lies (Showtime Sundays, 10 p.m.): This will be the best comedy that is premier ing this spring and the hardest to watch because its on Showtime. The premise couldnt be more timely: A consulting firm continually rips off the 1 percent of America without guilt and gets the unsuspecting corporate bosses to thank them for doing so in the process. The cast couldnt be more impressive. Don Cheadle has a great comedic streak going (just Google his name with Captain Planet) and it will lead the all-star cast. Kristen Bell, funniest in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, leads Cheadles supporting staff, which also features Ben Schwartz, best known as Aziz Ansaris business partner in Parks and Recreation. The writing of this show would have to be monumentally unfunny for this show to flop, which doesnt look to be the case. So feel free to add this to an already-full Sunday night lineup. Unsupervised (FX Thursdays, 10:30 p.m.): Unsuper vised will be filling some very large shoes this spring, replacing one of the funniest shows of fall, The League. The premise is extremely basic: Two best friends go through teenage life without any parental supervision. However, the show is overflowing with reasons why it seems like it will be a success. It will be paired with Archer as an hour of animated comedy on Thursday nights. It is created by three of the original writers of Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Its animated by the same animators as Archer. Finally, it will be voiced by the hilarious Justin Long, Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell. With so many successful comedies pouring out of FX in recent years, it will be a giant surprise if Unsupervised doesnt join them. Well See Angry Boys (HBO Tuesdays, 11 p.m.): Angry Boys is a mockumentary on HBO that originally aired in Australia about the issues young boys in the 21st century deal with. The creator of the series, Chris Lilley, also stars in the series in multiple roles, including a rapper, a Japanese mother and both twin brothers. Of all the shows in the Well See category, this is the one Im least excited about. Its on HBO, but not because it holds as high a level of prestige as other HBO shows hold, but because it is so offensive that the material cant be aired on broadcast television. Furthermore, this offensive material appears to be just for the sake of being offensive. The more of the show I watch, the less I want to see it, but I may just not enjoy Lilleys comedic styling. If you find him funny, then you will find the show funny. Although I do not, I still find myself chuckling during some of the bits. Napoleon Dynamite (FOX Sundays, 8:30 p.m.): Each of the four main networks are introducing a new comedy this spring, and of all of them, Napoleon Dynamite is the only show I do not have in my Skip It category. Now, I am not a fan of the original movie. Ive never even seen the entire thing, so when I heard an animated series will be airing voiced by the entire original cast, I was not extremely interested. Then I watched the trailer for the show and found the 30-second promo funnier than anything Ive seen in the original movie. Putting Napoleon into animated form is a risky decision by FOX because it looks like it will erase the incredibly distinct style that the original movie was filmed in. This will make it more appealing to audiences that didnt like the movie, but it could backfire with the films fans. If it doesnt backfire, the show will most likely become a mild success on FOX animated Sundays, but thats only if the writers have more up their sleeves than recycled Gosh! jokes. Key and Peele (Comedy Central Tuesdays, 10:30 p.m.): Let me warn you now: Key and Peele will be canceled. These two MADtv actors and writers are not the answer that will solve Comedy Centrals sketch show drought that has formed since the removal of Chappelles Show. The show will be extremely stereotypical and less funny than Dave Chappelles hit. I would put it a good leap above MADtv reruns in terms of the type of comedy you can expect, and that isnt necessarily a bad thing. If its on, give it a watch, but I wouldnt suggest planning your schedule around Key and Peele, nor would I expect it to still be on the air this time next year. Skip It Work It (ABC Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m): Juwanna Mann, Soror ity Girls, White Chicks. This is the prestigious level of comedy Work It is attempting to reach with its premise: Two out-of-work men who, desperate for money to support their families, dress up as women. Wait, what? The show looks so unfunny, so groan-wor thy that I would be shocked if it makes it past the fourth episode. ABC seems to know what they have on their hands as well, putting the show up against shows with monster ratings like Glee and The Biggest Loser, almost solidifying its failure. If you end up liking this show, youll be in the minority. Enjoy it while it lasts. Are You There, Chelsea? (NBC Wednesdays, 8:30 p.m.): It doesnt matter whether Are You There, Chelsea? will be good or bad, because going up against Survivor, American Idol and even the final season of One Tree Hill will make it impossible for it to gain enough viewers to satisfy the always-struggling NBC. However, after seeing previews for the show, I can sleep soundly at night knowing this show will be off the air soon. Based on Chelsea Handlers book with a similar name, Chelsea stars Laura Prepon (Donna from That 70s Show) as Chelsea Handler and features her hysterical adventures as a bar waitress. The actual Chelsea Handler plays the sister on the show. The show is surprisingly similar to the nonfunny Whitney, which will precede Chelsea. This means if youre smart, you will not be watching NBC on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Youll find more laughs on One Tree Hill. Rob! (CBS Thursdays, 8:30 p.m.): How long will it take before Mexican jokes get old? Thats the question Rob Schneider attempts to answer in his new series, Rob! The entire show seems to revolve around either insulting Mexican people or being insulted by them. However, unlike the previous two shows Ive listed, CBS seems to think this will be a hit with audiences and has paired it with the successful Big Bang Theory to take on Parks and Recreation and The Vampire Diaries. If any of these network shows must succeed, I would prefer this one, mostly due to the chance of a Steve Buscemi cameo. Oh, did I mention Cheech was in this? No? Probably because I didnt think it would help its case. Ay, caramba!TV Guide: A look at upcoming comedies in spring 2012 What not to miss and what to skip

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Podcast Bonanza Fresh off a new episode Wednesday, the podcast is back with another edition today, wrapping up the football season with thoughts on the hire of Brent Pease. We Want You!Come out to 1105 W. University Ave. on Friday from noon to 3 p.m. for our Open House. Were looking to hire several new writers. Free pizza! AP PhotoTOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Tasked with hiring his second offensive coordinator in as many years, Florida coach Will Mushe tries to rebuild Floridas program. So when the Gators announced Wednesday the hiring of former Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease to replace Charlie Weis, who took the head coaching job at Kansas last month, it was only appropriate that Muschamp used the discussing the newest addition to his staff. Really, it was about bringing a guy in that was going to be a good Bring some new ideas, bring some new energy to what were trying to do, but understand were not changing philosophically where were headed with this thing. Were not changing who we are and what In hiring Pease, whose contract terms made public shortly thereafter, Muschamp gets a coordinator with more than two decades of coaching experience, including the last six at Boise State, where the Broncos have become a perennial power. More importantly, Muschamp gets a pro-style coordinator who has experience calling plays in the Southeastern Conference, which Muschamp said is different than any other league due to the defensive fronts. Coach Muschamp and I share a lot of the same philosophies so in a statement Wednesday. I want to be multiple in our offensive formations and have a balanced attack with believe in being The Gators struggled in each of 114th in the nation in penalties per just 48.7 percent of the time they were inside the opponents 20. Under Pease in 2011, the Broncos scored touchdowns on 74.3 per eighth in the nation. A factor in Boise States success was Peases play-calling prowess and different tempos, all qualities New OC Pease brings degree of continuity, pro-style experience JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Staff Writer The ball left Mike Rosarios hand and hit nothing but hardwood. No clang, no swish. Just a swift rotation of leather cutting through an air-conditioned arena. His badly missed shot, taken early in the shot clock, made Rosario glance over to coach Billy Donovan and his teammates. Though Rosario had scored seven straight Florida points and helped build a nine-point lead before his miss with 8:44 seat 19 seconds later to explain his decision-making to an annoyed coach. van said of Rosario. He [told me], Well, I was open, and I said, Well, you know what? If youre going to claim yourself as being a good shooter and you actually shoot an airball when youre open, at least tell me the ball slipped out of your hands Rosario, a redshirt junior guard, may be Floridas leading bench scorer at 8.2 points per game, but that alone has not made him an ideal sixth man for the Gators. From this seasons outset, Donovan has been trying to mold Rosarios pure scoring skills into a more complete player.Healthy Rosario still adjustingTHE BOO THE REVIEWFor two months, Florida coach Billy Donovan has seen his patience dwindle. Tuesday night in the OConnell Cenrun out. center Patric Young and forward Erik Murphy. They left for the bench just 3:08 into Floridas 70-48 win against Geor gia. It was the earliest the pair had been yanked this season. phy cant forget to block out and he cant be late rotating. And Patric cant jump through the air to block shots and leave Weve talked about enough of that already. Its time to move forward because were in During the rest of the game, 38 more substitutions were paraded on and off the court. Some were made due to foul trouble, but the majority, especially in the second half, can only be blamed on missed defensive assignments and mental lapses.

Mikes always and has been a proven scorer, so what he did was not uncharacteristic of his ability, Donovan said. With back and ankle injuries keeping Rosario out or limiting him in UFs last six games, Florida has seen its bench held below doubledigit scoring four times, including a season-low one point against Tennessee. Finally healthy against Georgia, Rosario re-entered the game a little more than two minutes later, and added a new dimension that Donovan said hasnt been seen in two Gators losses during that stretch. Rosario snagged two steals and assisted on two Brad Beal 3-pointers to close the half. In 12 minutes of playing time, Rosario had a hand in 13 points. It felt great, Rosario said. To go out there and be able to just compete again to my full ability. Now that Im healthy, Ive got a lot to bring to the table for the team, so I felt like the opportunity was there tonight. While Donovan characterized Florida as a team that struggles with offensive consistency, Rosarios ability to provide quick scoring bursts has proven effective in the past. He scored seven points in six minutes overtime win against Arizona on Dec. 7. Getting those seven points in Donovan said of Rosarios most recent performance. Its interesting because I feel like people look at us as being this great scoring team. When you talk about scoring guys that can put the ball in their hands, guys that can score were a really, really good shooting team, but what weve got to do is weve got to understand we have to utilize our shooting. In the second half, Rosario hoisted another long three that was well off target. This time, Donovan kept him in. He respects us as players, Rosario said. He knows that I know the difference between a bad shot and good shot, so thats why he didnt pull me out of the game. Thats what he told me, so I was like, Thanks, coach. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. four losses this season. Im at a point right now after the Tennessee game where if guys dont block out, guys dont do the things they need to do, theyre coming out of the game, he said. Donovan issued the challenge to his team during its practices immediately following last Saturdays 11-point loss to the previously .500 Volunteers, a team that has dropped games against Austin Peay, College of Charleston and Oakland. Against the Bulldogs, the Gators came close to staying the aggressor for a full 40 minutes, but their focus was still not at the level that is needed to consistently win on the road in the SEC, or against any quality opponent for that matter. Florida held a 25-point lead on Georgia midway through the second before a 16-4 run by UGA the worst offensive team in the league cut the advantage to 13 with seven minutes left. The momentary collapse should serve as a reminder of what happened three days earlier. Every challenge [coach Donovan] brings to the table, we embrace it, said Mike Rosario, a redshirt junior guard. Because its a step to get better in life and also is a step to get more mature as a man. When youve got to take on challenges and be responsible for your actions, that says a lot about you as a man. Florida will be traveling to Columbia, S.C., on SaturTo keep his team mentally focused, Donovan knows he harrowing days of scrimmages. But as for what technique he will use to inspire the Gators against the Gamecocks, Donovan is currently at a loss. Those are things Ive got to help those guys with in terms of getting them prepared, Donovan said. How I go about that? What do I do? I dont know. Until he discovers a way to prolong Floridas moments of emotionally inspired basketball, the Gators are still at risk for another embarrassing loss. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org. 18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012WOMENS BASKETBALL JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Crashing the glass was a strength for Florida last season, and the Gators have picked up where they left off last March. Floridas 1,432 rebounds during the 2010-11 campaign ranked second in the Southeastern Conference only year ranked No. 4 in the AP Poll. This season, Florida (11-5, 1-2 SEC) again ranks second in the conference with 700 boards, averaging 43.3 per game heading into tonights road matchup at 7 p.m. against No. 19 Georgia (13-3, 2-1 SEC). However, the Gators can become more effective rebounders by decreasing the disparity between offensive and defensive boards. Florida boasts the best offensive rebounding percentage calculated by dividing a teams offensive boards by the sum of its offensive boards and its opponents defensive boards in the SEC at 47.2 Conversely, the Gators rank next to last in the conference with a 62.2 defensive rebounding percentage. Arkansas has the highest mark at 68.5 percent. Junior forward Jennifer George, who leads UF with 10.1 boards per game, has noticed that Floridas effort on the offensive glass has been superior this season. Were very tenacious going after the ball on offense, George said. You see your teammates shooting and you know where the balls going to come off of. Assistant coach Murriel Page has noticed the split, too. She suggests that grabbing an offensive rebound pulling down an opponents miss. Everybody wants the ball on the offensive end because you want to put in points, but nobody wants to do it on the other end, Page said. Coach Amanda Butler has stressed throughout the season the need for perimeter players to aid in the rebounding game. UF has been bolstered by a strong effort on the glass from senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley, who rank second and fourth on the team with 6.1 and 4.9 boards per game, respectively. However, the rest of the guards have left something to be desired. Senior guard Jordan Jones believes that improved effort from underperforming players will bring balance to the Gators rebounding. The guards need to do a better job of getting down there and helping, Jones said. It falls on us the people who arent getting many rebounds to help them out. Aside from George, the post players have also struggled to get their hands on the ball in the paint. One player that UF will rely on to shore up the effort under the basket is center Azania Stewart, who is averaging only 5.6 boards per game. Stewart showed signs of turning the corner with 10 rebounds against Kentucky, but regressed against Ole Miss (4) and South Carolina (2). Shes not making excuses or not taking responsibility, Jones said. Shes capable of it, shes been there before. Shes a 6-foot-4 post player in the SEC, and we need more from her. Page says that improving rebounding has been a focus in practice, adding that consistency on the defensive boards is crucial to Floridas identity. Were a fast-break team, so theres no other way to start a fast break than to get a big stop and get a quick rebound.Gators looking for more balance on boards against Bulldogs Florida Offensive and Defensive Rebounding Percentage11 WINS Florida: 20 offensive rebounds per game, 24.9 defensive rebounds per game Offensive Rebounding Percentage: 48.6 percent Opponents: 14.5 offensive rebounds pergame, 21.2 defensive rebounds per game Defensive Rebounding Percentage: 63.3 percent 5 LOSSES Florida: 18.8 offensive rebounds per game, 22.4 defensive rebounds per game Offensive Rebounding Percentage: 43.3 percent Opponents: 15.2 offensive rebounds per game, 23.6 defensive rebounds per game Defensive Rebounding Percentage: 48.7 percent Florida has outrebounded its opponent in 12 of 16 games UF is 9-3 when it outrebounds its opponent UF is 2-2 when its opponent has more rebounds Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff David Carr / Alligator After dealing with back and ankle injuries, Florida guard Mike Rosario returned to form against Georgia, scoring seven straight points in the win.

Muschamp praised Wednesday. We want to be aggressive in all phases as we move forward with this thing, Muschamp said. [Pease is] very unconventional in the way he thinks offensively at times, which is good, because it keeps the defense off balance. Although Pease brings a distinctive offensive mindset and years of experience to Gainesville, Muschamp made it clear to the Gators new offensive coordinator that continuity is key, and that the team is going to tweak the offense rather than install an entirely new playbook after one year. Muschamp wants to limit having to teach his players different terminology from what they used last season, saying its easier for one coach to learn than for an entire offense to do so, particularly with a young nucleus that includes rising sophomore quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel. At the end of the day, he doesnt need to get marbles in his mouth on third and 8, Muschamp said. He needs to be able to get a call out, so hes got to be familiar enough with the terminology to be able to call it and also our players be able to understand it. Contact Tom Green at tgreen@alligator.org. THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 KELLY PRICE Alligator Writer For Florida coach Will Muschamp and new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, it all started with a 6-foot-2, 260-pound defensive tackle named Sweet Pea. In a press conference Wednesday, he encountered Pease. Muschamp was working for Valdosta State and Pease was at Northern Arizona when, in the early 2000s, Muschamp lost a prized recruit Vincent Sweet Pea Burns to Pease. Muschamp never forgot. Hes an outstanding recruiter, Muschamp said. Right then, I knew he could recruit. But hes a guy whos been on my radar a long time. As a football coach, I faced him when we were at LSU and he was at Kentucky. I really liked, again, what he did with that football team offensively, creating ways to get his playmakers the ball. Creative in the play-calling, the tempos and different stuff, and as he has progressed, he and I have kept in pretty good contact. The selection of Pease will be a some Florida oral commits saying they like the hire. Oral commit Colin Thompson said he hasnt yet spoken to Pease directly, but expected they would talk Regardless, the four-star tight end from Warminster, Pa., said he was excited to see what Pease would bring to Gainesville, especially after his recent experience bringing Boise State to national prominence. He does a great job and he did nitely going to help (undecided recruits like Nelson Agholor and Stefon Diggs). I know reporters will make predictions and I see headlines like, This could really help receivers, and things like that, so I hope theyre reading some things. I hope those two lean to Florida. Theyre athlete freaks and theyre good guys. of Tampa, expressed during leadup to the Under Armour All-America game last week that he would be paying close attention to the coordinator search in Gainesville. from Olney, Md., is another recruit interested by Peases decision to join the Gators. Because of Peases extensive experience coaching NFL-caliber wideouts, Diggs told ESPN.com that the Gators have jumped higher on his board as National Signing Day approaches. Pease, who is the replaceing former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, has the potential to attract more offensive recruits like Diggs and Agholor a good sign for currently boasts two tight ends, a lone running back and one wide receiver. Pease, who Muschamp said has recruited in Floridas north-central regions before, will hit the recruiting ing Friday. Due to Peases experience as a quarterbacks coach, Muschamp said he will mainly target quarterback prospects. That positions different as far as evaluation and building that relationship, Muschamp said. But as far as his area is concerned, well sit down as a staff and make sure it meshes well with our staff. Obviously, hes also done a good job of developing players once they get on campus, but recruiting is all about developing good relationships with people. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1. Pease could attract undecided recruits FOOTBALL, from page 17No wholesale changes with Pease at helm of offenseThompson Diggs, Agholor main targets We want to be aggressive in all phases as we move forward with this thing.Will MuschampUF coachRECRUITING

As a group, the club will not endorse any one nominee, but members will discuss the pros and cons of each candidate. We have a bunch of individuals who support Romneys, Santorums and Pauls campaigns, said for College Republicans. Pesek, a 19-year-old religion and political science sophomore, said during the meeting the members will discuss the results from the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. They will also discuss why some former candidates dropped out of the race, he said. In the Iowa Republican Caucus, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney beat out former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Romney also pulled in the most votes in the New Hampshire primary, with Texas Rep. Ron Paul coming in second. Club president Ryan Garcia, a 21-year-old economics and history junior, said he was not surprised by the Iowa caucus results. It went as expected, he said. But I was surprised at how close the margin was between the candidates. Throughout the semester, the College Republicans will be holding events related to the primaries. Melchiorre, a 20-year-old political science and telecommunications junior, said club members will set up a table on the Reitz Union North Lawn on Jan. 31, the day of the Flor ida primaries. They will have infor mation about each candidate and will encourage registered Republicans to vote, she wrote in an email. Every election year were always really busy, Pesek said.

two letters to President Barack Obama and one to the EPA, urging it to approve and begin the testing. From the human plight of those living near the site, this is a very important step, said Paula DeLaney, Alachua County commissioner. But part of our responsibility is to keep pushing and keep pressing these issues. The EPA sent out approximately 400 letters this week to tenants around the site, located off Northwest 23rd Avenue, asking permission to collect dust samples from their homes, according to a press release. Thirty homes will be chosen, 15 of which will be close to the plant. The other 15 will be about two miles away. Dust will be collected from each home starting in March. Dioxin levels will then be compared between the closer houses and the houses that are farther away. Unlike with soil and water, there is no state or federal acceptable standard of dioxin in dust, said Stephen Roberts, director of the UF Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology, who also worked on the plan. There is no clarity as to how high dioxin levels must go to predictably produce health effects, Roberts said. It is a controversial issue in science. in dioxin levels between homes neighboring the plant and those farther away to show the impact of the sites contaminants. Some residents near the Superfund site are happy the EPA decided to conduct the tests. However, because of false information given to them in the past by government agencies, some are still skeptical. I applaud them for doing something, but this is a very small step, said Maria Parsons, a resident who lives three blocks from the site.

Letters to the Editor THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Editorial about interior design licensing was misinformed I am very disappointed to read the misinformed ar ticle regarding interior design. As someone who works for Shands in the facilities development department I can attest to the importance of an educated and licensed interior designer for commercial designs. The licensing laws have nothing to do with residential design; please check the facts before publishing. Paige WalkerMore work needs to be done for homeless This letter is in response to Adrianna Paidas article about the requirement for police clearance imposed on the poor and homeless to be allowed to use services at St. Francis House homeless shelter and dining hall. This requirement was imposed at the same time the 130 meal limit ordinance was enacted, but the police clearance requirement was not enforced until the meal limit was lifted. For two and a half years, they were forced to turn away thousands of hungry people. Over the last two years, the National Coalition for the Homeless in Washington D.C. published its list of the limit was seen as a human rights violation. Fewer people are being fed now than during the time when the meal limit was in effect. A large number of the homeless have been charged with having an open container or sleeping in a public place. Just where are they supposed to go? This sounds like criminalization of homelessness. We, the citizens of Gainesville, must continue on our own or with others to feed the hungry children, pregnant women, veterans and people with physical and mental disabilities. It has been said you can tell a great deal about a society by how it treats its most vulnerable citizens. Lets step up and feed the hungry, destitute and homeless. We are a much better city than we are showing the world. Pat Fitzpatrick UF graduate How is it that an individual such as Mitt Romney could not have had better luck as a presidential candidate and still struggle? In spite of multiple candidates reaching the apex of ratings and popularity, only Romney has endured and somehow stood above the fray. Despite this, he faces distrust among conservative Republicans for his mixed record on a number of Through more than 40 years of senatorial service, Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., only faced one candithe time, Romney supported a womans choice in abor tion, bragged about standing against Reagans economic policy, supported the Brady Bill on gun restriction and was against school prayer. Romney has always been a Republican, but his consistency as a conservative is questionable. Even in the successful gubernatorial election in 2002, Romney maintained some of these viewpoints. He supported maintaining the Massachusetts status quo on abortion. According to Massachusetts Institute of Technologys oldest newspaper, The Tech, Romney declared, I will not change any provisions in Massachusetts prochoice laws. He now maintains his commitment to repealing Roe v. Wade. On job creation, Business Insider reported that Massachusetts only averaged 1.4 percent growth during his time as governor, also supported by USA Today. The national average in the time of Romneys term was 5.3 per cent, and the independent think tank MassINC reported a ranking of 49th in job creation from 2001-07. This is also excluding the health care reform signed in 2006. Romney now runs against a health mandate, suggesting that the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority is much different than a federal Part of Romneys success in this election has been his uninspired opponents. He has always been the most political networks. Yet, a Gallup poll from the GOP ballot as of Jan. 9 shows a ranking of 30 percent among likely voters. From Nov. 6 through Dec. 25, Romney did not break 25 percent until after Christmas. When the numbers returned from the Iowa Republican Caucus, Romney bested Santorum by only eight votes. This is bewildering considering that Romney managed to have his shining moment in New Hampshire, dominating with 40 percent of the vote. This mohis opponents will still continue and hammer on Romneys record. I still maintain that Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana would have been the best candidate for Republicans to run in 2012. He has the blessings of a strong economic policy through low unemployment and balanced budgets, social policies favored by conservatives, and the fact that he was a two-term governor. The Republican party as of the last 30 years has been the party of Reagan and will only embrace Romney at arms length. Romney is more like the former governor of New York, George Pataki. Both are moderate Repubence. Romney has been both politically savvy and clever to avoid drawing attention to his Mormonism, sure to draw unease from Catholics and Christian evangelicals. vative Republicans, and the albatross of his record remains his largest liability. Guillermo R. Pradieu is an English sophomore at UF.Romneys conservatism questionableColumn Although I am sure the last thing you want to read about on a cold winter day is the impending end of fun as we know it, bear with me today as I play the role of Debbie Downer. Some of you have already heard about the proposed bill attacking Internet rights in the United States; I hope those of you who are already aware have signed the many circulating petitions and acted out against it. The bill I am referring to is called the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), and it was introduced in October by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas. so-cleverly-titled bill will not stop piracy at all. I would like to humbly state that piracy is not a problem. My example is one per son: Justin Bieber, the death of music. We are expected to pay more than a dollar for his mediocre music that becomes outdated in a day. This is nonsense, because he makes plenty of money for his work by going on tour. His fans should be able to enjoy his music for free if you can possibly enjoy it. Now that I am done ranting about the non-existent piracy problem, let me tackle why SOPA is unnecessary. SOPAs wording is far too vague and takes away consumers rights to express themselves and share music with friends. Under SOPA, the ever-so-popular trend of performing covers of favor ite artists music could be deemed illegal. For a website like YouTube, owned by Google, to host such a video would also be illegal, and grounds for the government to gradually shut down sites dependent on user-generated content The same could happen to Facebook and other socialnetworking sites like they expect us to have real-life friends. In all seriousness, this bill cannot be allowed to pass. Many of the companies this bill could hurt do agree with SOPAs initial goal of ending piracy, but killing creativity and individual expression is not a price they are willing to pay. In a New York Times advertisement posted by many leading social-networking sites, including but not limited to Facebook, Google and Twitter, the companies stated they agreed with the premise ecution. Unfortunately, the bill as drafted would expose lawabiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new and uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites. I ask all of you to call your local representatives for your hometown. Ask them to stand up against this insanely careless and poorly written bill. If we all do this, we may have the privilege of avoiding the death of the Internet, along with our individuality, creativity and our right to express ourselves.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9From the University of Michigan to the Broadway stagething amazing and its a good idea to remember that! In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Criss said that the cool thing is its not us versus you; theres no kind of separation.Totally Awesome Tip #2: Do what you know. In a pop culture-fueled world, there is always a surplus of fandoms. For StarKid, continuing its work can rely heavily on its fan base. Our marketing team is Twitter and teenage girls telling their friends, said co-founder Brian Holden in an interview with Variety. When an audience is known, its easier to appeal to it once its interests are piqued; theres a reason why many successes follow a formula. However, that isnt to say breaking free from repetition isnt out of the question in fact, many encourage it! Even Criss broke through the mold and began to indulge in new entertainment options. He still remains part of StarKid, appearing with them on multiple stops of the groups recent SPACE tour whenever he could. No matter what, the StarKids stay true to themselves and to their fans, and theres no going wrong with that. Totally Awesome Tip #3: Be fearless, but be smart about it.Three-hour long musicals about insects and talking genitalia (respectively) arent the usual Broadway fare. However, StarKid has fearlessly taken these topics and turned them into beloved productions that fans quote and sing repeatedly. Even their magical journey into the musical world of Harry Potter took guts: They were at risk of angering a massive fandom with any potential mistake. This bravery didnt come without precautions. As an article by Christopher Borrelli in the Chicago Tribune assured, the group publicly respected the Harry Potter franchise, owned by Warner Bros., by acknowledging that the franchise was not just their own. StarKid knew when to take provisions and how to use that to their advantage, which led to them branching out from the Potter franchise to encompass a variety of stage topics. Groups like StarKid are one of a kind, never to be replicated. However, the groups success is something that can be shared with any aspiring dreamer. The mixture of acknowledging a starting point, maintaining a relative focus and keeping a courageous attitude allows not only StarKid to continue to rise, but inspires StarKids-to-be and the like to pursue their dreams throughout any galaxy.

C.K.s special, Louis C.K.: Live at the Beacon Theater, was launched for purchase on his website Dec. 10. Knowing that it would be extremely easy to illegally download the special from various websites in its current format, C.K. said: Consider this: I made this video extremely easy to use against well-informed advice. I was told that it would be easier to torrent the way I made it, but I chose to do it this way anyway. Much to C.K.s satisfaction, his fans did come through for him, and his experiment was wildly successful. C.K. stated that sales revenue covered the entirety of his $250,000 production costs within 12 hours of releasing his special to the public.

KAY BEAAvenue WriterCall me cornball, but I love the holiday baggage that carries from lateNovember through early-January. Im one of those people who devour the spirit of the season, as if it were some sort of delicious, joy-regenerative side dish that accompanies the Thanksgiving tur key. Sending cards, baking cookies, watching cartoon specials, wrapping witty-yetsentimentally-personalized gifts name anything traditional that has to do with the concluding six weeks of the year, and Im all over it. Now, my reason for mentioning this is not to attempt torture by igniting festive yearning in your hearts; I bring up my interest in the holidays because 2011s were probably the worst I have ever experienced. Folks, I didnt even send cards this year. This really pisses me off. can relate to the following statement: What the hell was up with the Fall 2011 semester? I literally had to train my body to forget sleep was an option, suggesting instead that copious amounts of caffeine would be optimal for my health. This did wonders for my mood. Feliz Navidad? Pfff whatever! Lets just say that there were numerous moments in which I asked myself, Why am I in school again? What is the point? and immediately resolved upon turning in my last term paper. Oh accomplishment, how dysfunctional ye be. Next, the topic of money comes to mind. I am going to reveal a little secret to you readers: I am totally broke and worked two part-time jobs in addition to going to grad school. Despite this, I cant seem to reserve a dime even if it meant saving my hide. Maybe this has to do with the fact that the ratio between wages paid and the costs of life are so unfairly skewed even admit that one of my jobs is in a retail environment that hooks up employees with generous discounts and I still cant afford a stitch on the clearance shelf. This season, Everclears I Will Buy You a New Life felt more relevant than Bing Crosbys White Christmas, a disheartening truth that discloses moneys power. prit that crushed my holiday cheer: I got dumped. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, your weekly sex and relationship advice columnist has been kicked to the curb by her adorablytattooed, guitar-slinging boyfriend of the last few months. As someone who has had three serious, live-in, big-love boyfriends in her past, plus a hefty number of short-term on from this ex would not be emotionally consuming. I was wrong. The truth is, as I was dishing out columns last semester, I wrote from a POV of a happy, nostalgic one who remembered the woes of singledom but who was removed from its midst. Now, as Spring 2012 rolls in, I am faced with the daunting task of talking dirty while not getting laid. And to top it all off, my wonderful co-writer has also moved on to greener pastures. (Jake, Im genuinely happy for you, but you are missed!) I know that many of you probably believe admitting defeat is a sign of weakness, but I have to say that heartbreak during the holidays is crippling. Im little scared of what will unfold in these pages in the next few months. Fortunately, I will also say that a change of scenery and the company of family is an excellent remedy for mending bitterness. out the window of the airplane, watching the ground below grow smaller in the asthat I had an entire row of seats to myself, no strangers infringing upon my personal space. Feeling comfortable in my autonomy and excited for the events to come, it ocing solo was not to be scorned but rather something to be cherished. 10, ALLIGATOR New semester, new beginnings

Thomas NassifColumnisttnassif@alligator.org At the end of 2011, I was more wrapped up in end-of-theyear lists than ever before. a list of my own for the publication I write for and also keeping track of bands that I work with, hoping to see their records receive attention across the Web. At the end of any year, making your best-of lists causes ego-stroking to develop to a gross level. The fact that people will actually stare at a list of my favorite records and write me angry comments about why I Am the Avalanche wasnt higher on my list or why Red City mind-blowing to me. Doesnt the Internet give them things to do? Pictures of cats to look at? We also saw the future of music-listening become the present last year. Amazons Cloud Drive, Googles beta of its Google Music platform, Spotify, Rdio and Apples iCloud all provided us a glimpse into what will become the norm of listening to music. Spotify, Rdio and other music subscription services are paving the way for boundless music listening. Basically, instead of paying $10 for a CD in a record store (haha), or $10 on iTunes or even $0 to illegally download it,listeners nowjust pay to have access to a library of millions of songs available to stream at tips.Since its available on your smartphone, and since you can plug your smartphone into your car, Spotify and Rdio basically eliminated the need 2012. Your music is with you everywhere you go, its just not actually with you anymore. Apple took a different approach, offering the iCloud and iTunes Match to music fans. For those who still want to own their music, cloud and then listen to those songs from their iPhone or any computer with the Internet pretty much anywhere in America, more or less. new music-listening platforms, but 2012 should see the launch of newand-improved user interfaces. Soon, music consumers will be able to legally listen to all the music they want for a lower price than ever. The Horrible Crowes Elsie was my runaway album of the year. Its the side project of Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem, and hes the only soul singer left in America, I think. The Wonder Years Suburbia Ive Given You All and Now Im Nothing was my favorite poppunk record; it was the only record in that genre that really stood out as an instant classic for me. Frank Turners England Keep My Bones took the singer/songwriter title for me, and Red City Radios The Dangers Of Standing Still was the best punk rock album I heard last year. They are all available on Spotify and, Im sure, a variety of torrent sites for your perusal. Lets hope 2012 can match 2011 in the music industry. Ill be listening.

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 PATRICK HARTAvenue WriterA new semester is upon us, and that means a new season of television shows are here to distract us from said semester. A lot of airtime opened up for this spring, and nine new comedies have been approved. With all your favorite shows still on, there may be only time to give one or two new shows a try, so Ive spent countless hours analyzing all the new shows, sitting through the funny moments and the painfully not-funny moments. I have compiled a guide of what to watch and what to pass over without a second thought.Sure To Be Funny I Just Want My Pants Back (MTV Thursdays, 11 p.m.): On the surface, I Just Want My Pants Back seems to fit into the typical MTV scripted show. Lead character Jason gets his heart stolen by a one-night stand (who, of course, left wearing his pants) and now is on an never-ending quest to find her again, leading to adventures involving sex, alcohol and living the poor, single life. While the premise is simple and overdone, I can only describe the sneak peeks and trailers in one word: cool. It doesnt look incredibly funny (or even moderately funny), but, like the recently canceled How To Make It In America, Pants replaces jokes and humor with drinking games, midnight block parties and, as I mentioned before, lots and lots of sex. The show wont match the smarts and wit of any of the elite comedy currently on television, but it will definitely find an audience on MTV, and it may just be the perfect show to watch before going out and making mistakes shows seems to be all about. House of Lies (Showtime Sundays, 10 p.m.): This will be the best comedy that is premier ing this spring and the hardest to watch because its on Showtime. The premise couldnt be more timely: A consulting firm continually rips off the 1 percent of America without guilt and gets the unsuspecting corporate bosses to thank them for doing so in the process. The cast couldnt be more impressive. Don Cheadle has a great comedic streak going (just Google his name with Captain Planet) and it will lead the all-star cast. Kristen Bell, funniest in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, leads Cheadles supporting staff, which also features Ben Schwartz, best known as Aziz Ansaris business partner in Parks and Recreation. The writing of this show would have to be monumentally unfunny for this show to flop, which doesnt look to be the case. So feel free to add this to an already-full Sunday night lineup. Unsupervised (FX Thursdays, 10:30 p.m.): Unsuper vised will be filling some very large shoes this spring, replacing one of the funniest shows of fall, The League. The premise is extremely basic: Two best friends go through teenage life without any parental supervision. However, the show is overflowing with reasons why it seems like it will be a success. It will be paired with Archer as an hour of animated comedy on Thursday nights. It is created by three of the original writers of Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Its animated by the same animators as Archer. Finally, it will be voiced by the hilarious Justin Long, Fred Armisen and Kristen Bell. With so many successful comedies pouring out of FX in recent years, it will be a giant surprise if Unsupervised doesnt join them. Well See Angry Boys (HBO Tuesdays, 11 p.m.): Angry Boys is a mockumentary on HBO that originally aired in Australia about the issues young boys in the 21st century deal with. The creator of the series, Chris Lilley, also stars in the series in multiple roles, including a rapper, a Japanese mother and both twin brothers. Of all the shows in the Well See category, this is the one Im least excited about. Its on HBO, but not because it holds as high a level of prestige as other HBO shows hold, but because it is so offensive that the material cant be aired on broadcast television. Furthermore, this offensive material appears to be just for the sake of being offensive. The more of the show I watch, the less I want to see it, but I may just not enjoy Lilleys comedic styling. If you find him funny, then you will find the show funny. Although I do not, I still find myself chuckling during some of the bits. Napoleon Dynamite (FOX Sundays, 8:30 p.m.): Each of the four main networks are introducing a new comedy this spring, and of all of them, Napoleon Dynamite is the only show I do not have in my Skip It category. Now, I am not a fan of the original movie. Ive never even seen the entire thing, so when I heard an animated series will be airing voiced by the entire original cast, I was not extremely interested. Then I watched the trailer for the show and found the 30-second promo funnier than anything Ive seen in the original movie. Putting Napoleon into animated form is a risky decision by FOX because it looks like it will erase the incredibly distinct style that the original movie was filmed in. This will make it more appealing to audiences that didnt like the movie, but it could backfire with the films fans. If it doesnt backfire, the show will most likely become a mild success on FOX animated Sundays, but thats only if the writers have more up their sleeves than recycled Gosh! jokes. Key and Peele (Comedy Central Tuesdays, 10:30 p.m.): Let me warn you now: Key and Peele will be canceled. These two MADtv actors and writers are not the answer that will solve Comedy Centrals sketch show drought that has formed since the removal of Chappelles Show. The show will be extremely stereotypical and less funny than Dave Chappelles hit. I would put it a good leap above MADtv reruns in terms of the type of comedy you can expect, and that isnt necessarily a bad thing. If its on, give it a watch, but I wouldnt suggest planning your schedule around Key and Peele, nor would I expect it to still be on the air this time next year. Skip It Work It (ABC Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m): Juwanna Mann, Soror ity Girls, White Chicks. This is the prestigious level of comedy Work It is attempting to reach with its premise: Two out-of-work men who, desperate for money to support their families, dress up as women. Wait, what? The show looks so unfunny, so groan-wor thy that I would be shocked if it makes it past the fourth episode. ABC seems to know what they have on their hands as well, putting the show up against shows with monster ratings like Glee and The Biggest Loser, almost solidifying its failure. If you end up liking this show, youll be in the minority. Enjoy it while it lasts. Are You There, Chelsea? (NBC Wednesdays, 8:30 p.m.): It doesnt matter whether Are You There, Chelsea? will be good or bad, because going up against Survivor, American Idol and even the final season of One Tree Hill will make it impossible for it to gain enough viewers to satisfy the always-struggling NBC. However, after seeing previews for the show, I can sleep soundly at night knowing this show will be off the air soon. Based on Chelsea Handlers book with a similar name, Chelsea stars Laura Prepon (Donna from That 70s Show) as Chelsea Handler and features her hysterical adventures as a bar waitress. The actual Chelsea Handler plays the sister on the show. The show is surprisingly similar to the nonfunny Whitney, which will precede Chelsea. This means if youre smart, you will not be watching NBC on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Youll find more laughs on One Tree Hill. Rob! (CBS Thursdays, 8:30 p.m.): How long will it take before Mexican jokes get old? Thats the question Rob Schneider attempts to answer in his new series, Rob! The entire show seems to revolve around either insulting Mexican people or being insulted by them. However, unlike the previous two shows Ive listed, CBS seems to think this will be a hit with audiences and has paired it with the successful Big Bang Theory to take on Parks and Recreation and The Vampire Diaries. If any of these network shows must succeed, I would prefer this one, mostly due to the chance of a Steve Buscemi cameo. Oh, did I mention Cheech was in this? No? Probably because I didnt think it would help its case. Ay, caramba!TV Guide: A look at upcoming comedies in spring 2012 What not to miss and what to skip

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Podcast Bonanza Fresh off a new episode Wednesday, the podcast is back with another edition today, wrapping up the football season with thoughts on the hire of Brent Pease. We Want You!Come out to 1105 W. University Ave. on Friday from noon to 3 p.m. for our Open House. Were looking to hire several new writers. Free pizza! AP PhotoTOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer Tasked with hiring his second offensive coordinator in as many years, Florida coach Will Mushe tries to rebuild Floridas program. So when the Gators announced Wednesday the hiring of former Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease to replace Charlie Weis, who took the head coaching job at Kansas last month, it was only appropriate that Muschamp used the discussing the newest addition to his staff. Really, it was about bringing a guy in that was going to be a good Bring some new ideas, bring some new energy to what were trying to do, but understand were not changing philosophically where were headed with this thing. Were not changing who we are and what In hiring Pease, whose contract terms made public shortly thereafter, Muschamp gets a coordinator with more than two decades of coaching experience, including the last six at Boise State, where the Broncos have become a perennial power. More importantly, Muschamp gets a pro-style coordinator who has experience calling plays in the Southeastern Conference, which Muschamp said is different than any other league due to the defensive fronts. Coach Muschamp and I share a lot of the same philosophies so in a statement Wednesday. I want to be multiple in our offensive formations and have a balanced attack with believe in being The Gators struggled in each of 114th in the nation in penalties per just 48.7 percent of the time they were inside the opponents 20. Under Pease in 2011, the Broncos scored touchdowns on 74.3 per eighth in the nation. A factor in Boise States success was Peases play-calling prowess and different tempos, all qualities New OC Pease brings degree of continuity, pro-style experience JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Staff Writer The ball left Mike Rosarios hand and hit nothing but hardwood. No clang, no swish. Just a swift rotation of leather cutting through an air-conditioned arena. His badly missed shot, taken early in the shot clock, made Rosario glance over to coach Billy Donovan and his teammates. Though Rosario had scored seven straight Florida points and helped build a nine-point lead before his miss with 8:44 seat 19 seconds later to explain his decision-making to an annoyed coach. van said of Rosario. He [told me], Well, I was open, and I said, Well, you know what? If youre going to claim yourself as being a good shooter and you actually shoot an airball when youre open, at least tell me the ball slipped out of your hands Rosario, a redshirt junior guard, may be Floridas leading bench scorer at 8.2 points per game, but that alone has not made him an ideal sixth man for the Gators. From this seasons outset, Donovan has been trying to mold Rosarios pure scoring skills into a more complete player.Healthy Rosario still adjustingTHE BOOthe THE ReEVIeEWFor two months, Florida coach Billy Donovan has seen his patience dwindle. Tuesday night in the OConnell Cenrun out. center Patric Young and forward Erik Murphy. They left for the bench just 3:08 into Floridas 70-48 win against Geor gia. It was the earliest the pair had been yanked this season. phy cant forget to block out and he cant be late rotating. And Patric cant jump through the air to block shots and leave Weve talked about enough of that already. Its time to move forward because were in During the rest of the game, 38 more substitutions were paraded on and off the court. Some were made due to foul trouble, but the majority, especially in the second half, can only be blamed on missed defensive assignments and mental lapses.

Mikes always and has been a proven scorer, so what he did was not uncharacteristic of his ability, Donovan said. With back and ankle injuries keeping Rosario out or limiting him in UFs last six games, Florida has seen its bench held below doubledigit scoring four times, including a season-low one point against Tennessee. Finally healthy against Georgia, Rosario re-entered the game a little more than two minutes later, and added a new dimension that Donovan said hasnt been seen in two Gators losses during that stretch. Rosario snagged two steals and assisted on two Brad Beal 3-pointers to close the half. In 12 minutes of playing time, Rosario had a hand in 13 points. It felt great, Rosario said. To go out there and be able to just compete again to my full ability. Now that Im healthy, Ive got a lot to bring to the table for the team, so I felt like the opportunity was there tonight. While Donovan characterized Florida as a team that struggles with offensive consistency, Rosarios ability to provide quick scoring bursts has proven effective in the past. He scored seven points in six minutes overtime win against Arizona on Dec. 7. Getting those seven points in Donovan said of Rosarios most recent performance. Its interesting because I feel like people look at us as being this great scoring team. When you talk about scoring guys that can put the ball in their hands, guys that can score were a really, really good shooting team, but what weve got to do is weve got to understand we have to utilize our shooting. In the second half, Rosario hoisted another long three that was well off target. This time, Donovan kept him in. He respects us as players, Rosario said. He knows that I know the difference between a bad shot and good shot, so thats why he didnt pull me out of the game. Thats what he told me, so I was like, Thanks, coach. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@ alligator.org. four losses this season. Im at a point right now after the Tennessee game where if guys dont block out, guys dont do the things they need to do, theyre coming out of the game, he said. Donovan issued the challenge to his team during its practices immediately following last Saturdays 11-point loss to the previously .500 Volunteers, a team that has dropped games against Austin Peay, College of Charleston and Oakland. Against the Bulldogs, the Gators came close to staying the aggressor for a full 40 minutes, but their focus was still not at the level that is needed to consistently win on the road in the SEC, or against any quality opponent for that matter. Florida held a 25-point lead on Georgia midway through the second before a 16-4 run by UGA the worst offensive team in the league cut the advantage to 13 with seven minutes left. The momentary collapse should serve as a reminder of what happened three days earlier. Every challenge [coach Donovan] brings to the table, we embrace it, said Mike Rosario, a redshirt junior guard. Because its a step to get better in life and also is a step to get more mature as a man. When youve got to take on challenges and be responsible for your actions, that says a lot about you as a man. Florida will be traveling to Columbia, S.C., on SaturTo keep his team mentally focused, Donovan knows he harrowing days of scrimmages. But as for what technique he will use to inspire the Gators against the Gamecocks, Donovan is currently at a loss. Those are things Ive got to help those guys with in terms of getting them prepared, Donovan said. How I go about that? What do I do? I dont know. Until he discovers a way to prolong Floridas moments of emotionally inspired basketball, the Gators are still at risk for another embarrassing loss. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org. 18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012WOMENS BASKETBALL JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Crashing the glass was a strength for Florida last season, and the Gators have picked up where they left off last March. Floridas 1,432 rebounds during the 2010-11 campaign ranked second in the Southeastern Conference only year ranked No. 4 in the AP Poll. This season, Florida (11-5, 1-2 SEC) again ranks second in the conference with 700 boards, averaging 43.3 per game heading into tonights road matchup at 7 p.m. against No. 19 Georgia (13-3, 2-1 SEC). However, the Gators can become more effective rebounders by decreasing the disparity between offensive and defensive boards. Florida boasts the best offensive rebounding percentage calculated by dividing a teams offensive boards by the sum of its offensive boards and its opponents defensive boards in the SEC at 47.2 Conversely, the Gators rank next to last in the conference with a 62.2 defensive rebounding percentage. Arkansas has the highest mark at 68.5 percent. Junior forward Jennifer George, who leads UF with 10.1 boards per game, has noticed that Floridas effort on the offensive glass has been superior this season. Were very tenacious going after the ball on offense, George said. You see your teammates shooting and you know where the balls going to come off of. Assistant coach Murriel Page has noticed the split, too. She suggests that grabbing an offensive rebound pulling down an opponents miss. Everybody wants the ball on the offensive end because you want to put in points, but nobody wants to do it on the other end, Page said. Coach Amanda Butler has stressed throughout the season the need for perimeter players to aid in the rebounding game. UF has been bolstered by a strong effort on the glass from senior guards Deana Allen and Lanita Bartley, who rank second and fourth on the team with 6.1 and 4.9 boards per game, respectively. However, the rest of the guards have left something to be desired. Senior guard Jordan Jones believes that improved effort from underperforming players will bring balance to the Gators rebounding. The guards need to do a better job of getting down there and helping, Jones said. It falls on us the people who arent getting many rebounds to help them out. Aside from George, the post players have also struggled to get their hands on the ball in the paint. One player that UF will rely on to shore up the effort under the basket is center Azania Stewart, who is averaging only 5.6 boards per game. Stewart showed signs of turning the corner with 10 rebounds against Kentucky, but regressed against Ole Miss (4) and South Carolina (2). Shes not making excuses or not taking responsibility, Jones said. Shes capable of it, shes been there before. Shes a 6-foot-4 post player in the SEC, and we need more from her. Page says that improving rebounding has been a focus in practice, adding that consistency on the defensive boards is crucial to Floridas identity. Were a fast-break team, so theres no other way to start a fast break than to get a big stop and get a quick rebound.Gators looking for more balance on boards against Bulldogs Florida Offensive and Defensive Rebounding Percentage11 WINS Florida: 20 offensive rebounds per game, 24.9 defensive rebounds per game Offensive Rebounding Percentage: 48.6 percent Opponents: 14.5 offensive rebounds pergame, 21.2 defensive rebounds per game Defensive Rebounding Percentage: 63.3 percent 5 LOSSES Florida: 18.8 offensive rebounds per game, 22.4 defensive rebounds per game Offensive Rebounding Percentage: 43.3 percent Opponents: 15.2 offensive rebounds per game, 23.6 defensive rebounds per game Defensive Rebounding Percentage: 48.7 percent Florida has outrebounded its opponent in 12 of 16 games UF is 9-3 when it outrebounds its opponent UF is 2-2 when its opponent has more rebounds Shawn Janetzke / Alligator Staff David Carr / Alligator After dealing with back and ankle injuries, Florida guard Mike Rosario returned to form against Georgia, scoring seven straight points in the win.

Muschamp praised Wednesday. We want to be aggressive in all phases as we move forward with this thing, Muschamp said. [Pease is] very unconventional in the way he thinks offensively at times, which is good, because it keeps the defense off balance. Although Pease brings a distinctive offensive mindset and years of experience to Gainesville, Muschamp made it clear to the Gators new offensive coordinator that continuity is key, and that the team is going to tweak the offense rather than install an entirely new playbook after one year. Muschamp wants to limit having to teach his players different terminology from what they used last season, saying its easier for one coach to learn than for an entire offense to do so, particularly with a young nucleus that includes rising sophomore quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel. At the end of the day, he doesnt need to get marbles in his mouth on third and 8, Muschamp said. He needs to be able to get a call out, so hes got to be familiar enough with the terminology to be able to call it and also our players be able to understand it.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 KELLY PRICE Alligator Writer For Florida coach Will Muschamp and new offensive coordinator Brent Pease, it all started with a 6-foot-2, 260-pound defensive tackle named Sweet Pea. In a press conference Wednesday, he encountered Pease. Muschamp was working for Valdosta State and Pease was at Northern Arizona when, in the early 2000s, Muschamp lost a prized recruit Vincent Sweet Pea Burns to Pease. Muschamp never forgot. Hes an outstanding recruiter, Muschamp said. Right then, I knew he could recruit. But hes a guy whos been on my radar a long time. As a football coach, I faced him when we were at LSU and he was at Kentucky. I really liked, again, what he did with that football team offensively, creating ways to get his playmakers the ball. Creative in the play-calling, the tempos and different stuff, and as he has progressed, he and I have kept in pretty good contact. The selection of Pease will be a some Florida oral commits saying they like the hire. Oral commit Colin Thompson said he hasnt yet spoken to Pease directly, but expected they would talk Regardless, the four-star tight end from Warminster, Pa., said he was excited to see what Pease would bring to Gainesville, especially after his recent experience bringing Boise State to national prominence. He does a great job and he did nitely going to help (undecided recruits like Nelson Agholor and Stefon Diggs). I know reporters will make predictions and I see headlines like, This could really help receivers, and things like that, so I hope theyre reading some things. I hope those two lean to Florida. Theyre athlete freaks and theyre good guys. of Tampa, expressed during leadup to the Under Armour All-America game last week that he would be paying close attention to the coordinator search in Gainesville. from Olney, Md., is another recruit interested by Peases decision to join the Gators. Because of Peases extensive experience coaching NFL-caliber wideouts, Diggs told ESPN.com that the Gators have jumped higher on his board as National Signing Day approaches. Pease, who is the replaceing former offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, has the potential to attract more offensive recruits like Diggs and Agholor a good sign for currently boasts two tight ends, a lone running back and one wide receiver. Pease, who Muschamp said has recruited in Floridas north-central regions before, will hit the recruiting ing Friday. Due to Peases experience as a quarterbacks coach, Muschamp said he will mainly target quarterback prospects. That positions different as far as evaluation and building that relationship, Muschamp said. But as far as his area is concerned, well sit down as a staff and make sure it meshes well with our staff. Obviously, hes also done a good job of developing players once they get on campus, but recruiting is all about developing good relationships with people. Oral commitments are nonbinding until a national letter of intent is signed on or after National Signing Day on Feb. 1. Pease could attract undecided recruits FOOTBALL, from page 17No wholesale changes with Pease at helm of offenseThompson Diggs, Agholor main targets We want to be aggressive in all phases as we move forward with this thing.Will MuschampUF coachRECRUITING
