FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 PESTICIDE PROTECTS CITRUS PLANTS. ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterUF researchers have discovered an insecticide that comes from something humans eat every day. Methionine is an essential amino acid that humans get from food, and it can double as a pesticide against the invasive lime swallowtail caterpillar that could threaten Floridas citrus industry. an alternative to the bad chemical pesticides, said Delano Lewis, co-author of the study, which was published in the Journal of Economic Entomology. Because the lime swallowtail cant be legally brought into the U.S., researchers experimented using a similar species. The pesticide was 100 percent effective in killing the caterpillars on wild lime trees within three to four days. It is harmless to citrus plants, mammals and birds, Lewis said. In the soil, the amino acid would become fertilizer for the plants. Its better than most of the other chemicals out there because its insect you want, he said. The research was funded by UFs Division of Sponsored Research and the Florida Museum of Natural Historys Museum Associates Board.UF research: amino acid can double as pesticideSTUDENT LIFE KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Contributing WriterA recently released report shows binge drinking is still prevalent throughout the country, and experts say UF is no exception. The report, published this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states that more than 90 percent of the alcohol youth drink is consumed while binge drinking. According to the CDCs January 2012 Vital Signs report, most binge drinkers in the U.S. are 18 to 34 years old. Individuals in that age range, for the most part, tend to be more accepting of binge drinking among their peers, said Lisa Merlo, a clinical psychologist at UF. It plays a larger role in social interactions compared to some other age groups. UF is no stranger to the issue of binge drinking. According to the 2010 survey, 41.6 percent of participatone sitting within two weeks of taking the survey. four or more alcoholic beverages within a short peAdditionally, more than half of UF students sur veyed reported having a hangover in the past year, and about one third admitted to having memory loss due to drinking. However, the survey stated that 5.8 percent or less of people who took the survey considered their drinking a problem. With that age group, regardless of whether youre in college or not, theres that feeling of invincibility that a lot of young people have, said Maureen Miller, coordinator for alcohol and drug prevention at UF. College students are not immune to the consequences of binge drinking, said Cara Bearison, 20year-old management sophomore. Its not fun for you because youll probably throw up and not remember anything, Bearison said. Youre putting yourself at risk for basically anything bad that could happen to you, so I think its dangerous. Despite high levels of alcohol abuse among students, percentages of alcohol use have decreased gradually since 2004, according to the UF survey. I like to think thats a positive sign kind of contributing to the work that we have been doing, Miller said. I feel really good about the direction that were heading.Binge drinking still prevalent in US Its not fun for you because youll probably throw up and not remember anything.Cara Bearisonmanagement sophomore

If you havent noticed, its Hollywood awards show season, and the stars are coming out. If you think about it, though, all the awards shows, from the Golden Globes to the Academy Awards, are basically the movie and music industries patting themselves on the back. For instance, the Screen Actors Guild is basically actors giving awards to actors. Thats why here at the Alligator, we believe our weekly awards are truly prestigious and meaningful. That brings us to our who-are-we-kidding-we-just-liketo-make-fun-of-people edition of... Darts & Laurels First, we travel to the Midwest to throw a hows-thattax-hike-working-out-for-you DART to the state of Illinois, which increased state income taxes by 67 percent and also increased corporate taxes. Despite its effort to raise revenue through these tax hikes, the state is still facing an $8.5-billion shortfall, according to Illinois State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. Well, that worked. Next, we give an it-may-have-taken-him-a-while-tosound-out-the-writing-on-the-wall LAUREL to Rick Perry for dropping out of the GOP race. He did the best in the polls before the nation had a chance to hear him speak. After that, it was all downhill. Of course, we cant end the week without giving a standing-up-to-censorship LAUREL to Wikipedia and the nearly 7,000 other websites that blacked out their pages in protest of SOPA and PIPA, the anti-Internet piracy bills currently under consideration in Congress. We hope it pays off. On a related note, were throwing a dude-like-WTF-isup-with-like-Wikipedia DART to the high-school students who freaked out all over Twitter and other social networking sites on Wednesday when they couldnt use Wikipedia to do their science homework. Reading is hard, isnt it? Also from the Midwest, were going to toss an Ive-gota-fever-and-the-only-prescription-is-more-cowbell LAUREL to the 26-year-old Wisconsin man who refused to stop playing his cowbell in protest of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. He was, of course, arrested for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, but it sounded awesome. Finally, we throw a chill-the-eff-out DART to Gainesville criminals. It seems like we cant go a day without another report of armed robbery, attempted rape or murder. Law-abiding citizens of Gainesville: Make sure you never go out alone, and stay away from sketchy areas. Dont open your door to strangers, and be sure to keep all of the valuables in your car hidden. Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week. At a dinner reception in 1830, President Andrew Jackson proposed a toast, saying, Our Union: It must be preserved. Jacksons vice president, John Calhoun, gave a toast of his own, saying, The Union, next to our liberty most dear. The division demonstrated in these competing toasts a microcosm of the American political landscape today. The idea of liberty freedom from control, interference and obligation has virtually gone in, as Paul Craig Roberts of Press TV so aptly put it, a forgotten grave in a forgotten graveyard. Naturally, when governments are installed, they infringe on their peoples liberty through obligations such as taxes and restrictions like a minimum drinking age. The trade-off between liberty and some government interference is worth it when government interference is limited. Today, however, liberty is under assault from both par ties in the government. While each party appears to promote one aspect of liberty, each, often in the same breath, condemns liberty in other parts of life. Republicans advocate economic liberty, yet wish to control social liberty under the guise of morality. For instance, they are proponents of tax cuts, increasing the amount of your money that isnt forcibly taken by the government. Meanwhile, Republicans are also in favor of restricting your social liberty: Think of President Richard Nixon declaring a war on drugs and citing drugs as public enemy No. 1. Whether or not you are for drug use, criminalizing and arresting drug users inherently limits ones social liberty. Democrats are the reverse. On the one hand, they want to increase social liberty. For instance, they gener ally believe that people can marry whomever, regardless of gender. Yet Democrats limit economic liberty, favoring higher taxes to pay for expanded social services. Forcibly taking more of the money that people worked hard for restrains economic liberty. The irony is that both parties promote their own chunk of liberty and spurn the other for the same reason: morality. Republicans must restrict institutions like marriage because it is, according to them, only morally acceptable to allow a man and a woman to wed. Democrats are compelled to steal more of your money to take care of (usually) indigent people because they feel the moral obligation to help the poor. According to the logic of both parties, the people in Washington think certain aspects of liberty should be limited, because, of course, they know what is best for you. Both parties champion partial liberty, yet condemn total liberty. Contrary to what the politicians may imply, liberty is not something you can chop up. You either have it or you dont, almost like the item that precedes it in the Declaration of Independence: life. Liberty is not piecewise; its either whole or not really liberty. The assault on liberty can be seen as a function of government expansion. As the government grows, it takes more of the pie, and politicians believe in an incremental expansion, meaning the government should grow slightly each year, shaving off a little bit more liberty yearly. We ought to realize virtually all mainstream politicians halfheartedly believe in liberty, but there is hope. The light at the end of the tunnel is a frail man named Ron Paul. He believes in preserving the entirety of liberty, not one chunk or the other. In a debate last year, Paul introduced himself as the champion of liberty. Disregard what the political merry-go-round media espouse, and really listen to what these politicians are saying it may scare you. Chris Ceresa is a math and classics major at UF.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Students Party wrong to criticize Senate processAs Senate president, I want to address the deliber ate lies of Students Party Sen. Carly Wilson that appeared in yesterdays letter to the editor. The actions displayed in Tuesday nights meeting were a disgrace to the Senate process and, more important, to the students of UF. Following the Fall 2011 elections, I charged the election code revision committee to address any problems that may have occurred. The Students Party was given representation on the committee and, in fact, Sen. Wilson selected who would represent that party. Not once during the month and a half that the committee was reviewing the codes did any member of the Students Party submit suggestions. During the at the Jan. 10 Senate meeting, Students Party members did raise some concerns about the election codes, but they offered no amendments. It was announced that the election code committee would meet again for more revisions before the second, and code reform bill. All senators and nonsenators were encouraged to submit amendments and suggestions for the committee to review. Again, nothing was received from anyone in the Students Party. Several Unite senators, however, took the initiative to make additional amendments to address the concerns that were raised by Students Party members at the previous meeting. These amendments were passed unanimously by members of both parties at the Jan. 17 Senate meeting. Sen. Wilsons desperate attempt to blatantly lie about the election code revision process is nothing more than a publicity stunt and a prime example of partisan politics spent half as much time drafting meaningful legislation as she does making up lies about the Unite Party, UF and its students would be far better off. Andy Mason UF Senate presidentLetters to the EditorThe Internet is often compared to the Wild West due to its anything-goes, uncharted nature. As users, the occasionally unruly but excitingly unbound environment has pros and cons; we worry about Last fall, Congress introduced the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, to serve as the new sheriff in town, aiming to bring some order to these here parts. SOPAs trusty deputy, the PROTECT IP Act (short for the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act) also gained traction in the Senate, including co-sponsorships from both Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. Aside from forcing late nights at the Capitol Hill Acstirred up controversy. The biggest concern is the potential of a less free and open Internet, as websites suspected of copyright infringement and piracy could face steep consequences, including blocked access from ser vice providers and search engines. This indirect form of censorship threatens the Internet as weve known it. As an act of protest against SOPA, Wikipedia blacked out its website Wednesday, which you may have noticed when you tried to look up Rachel McAdams age or the overall population of the Greater Stockholm metropolitan area. Reddit, among other sites, joined the blackout, too. Google, eBay, Twitter and Facebook also voiced opposition to the bills. These arent random niche websites contesting the legislation; if there were a Mount Rushmore for the Internet, those four faces would be on it. The objection to the bills rests in that weve grown accustomed to the services that the Internet provides, even if there is some infringement. Its similar to being in a third world country and seeing a bootlegged T-shirt with Bart Simpson or Tweety Bird on it. Vendors probably didnt check with Matt Groening or either Warner brother to legally display these cartoons wearing the countrys colors while playing soccer, but, who cares; let it slide, tends to be the response. The practice is seemingly harmless and doesnt merit strict enforcement, even if use of the image is technically prohibited. ownership rights for intellectual property can be tricky. Trekkies dont upload episodes of their favorite show to hurt the franchise; their goal is to further the shows and production, because even if consumers arent paying a price to download a movie or song, someone paid a price to provide it. Its easy to point to rich executives, actors and musicians, but technicians and stagehands The reality of the Internet is that weve progressed by using it without the looming regulations. Were we spoiled with too much of a good thing? Probably. But it wasnt monitored closely enough early on, so we dove in. Is it now worth limiting access to information and material that has been both useful and enjoyable? Probably not. So, companies should look to modify their business models to correspond with the reality of our Internet habits. The recreational and productive value of the Internet in its current form is evident; encouragA tweet opposing SOPA said the act is trying to put ing that piracy and infringement are problems, but the solution should be adjusting to demand, not overreacting to the problem.

ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterHomes that have cars parked all over the yard may soon need a driveway. The Gainesville City Commission decided Thursday to draft a petition that would establish parking regulations for multi-family homes around UFs campus. This would include the area bordered by Southwest 13th Street, University Avenue and Southwest Sixth Street. Many of these are single-family homes zoned as multi-family homes, meaning one house includes more than one residence. parked in the yard, said Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Parking spaces would have to be accessed by an approved driveway, and cars would not be allowed to drive over a curb to park, according to the draft plan. Landlords acquired these homes before current zoning codes were established, he said. Prior to current codes, landlords didnt have to submit a parking plan, and cars could be parked anywhere on the property. Hawkins said parking on these properties destroys curbs and sidewalks. After cars continually park on grass, dirt begins to surface and dumps into the citys storm water system. Hawkins said this counter acts money from the city aimed to treat storm water. Mulch or gravel could be used to prevent erosion, according to the draft plan. If passed, the amended or dinance would allow the city to approach these homeowners and create a parking plan. This is long overdue, Hawkins said. 8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffDistrict 2 Commissioner Todd Chase speaks at a Gainesville City Commission meeting Thursday afternoon at City Hall.

Students can either go to the lecture or view it online. Using Google+ Hangouts, Dickrell or a teaching assistant can video chat with up to nine students at once and share documents. Statics is a math-based class, and he said he plans to use the screen-sharing function to show problems. semester using Hangouts at UF, Dickrell will be using it to a limited degree. He will announce chats on eLearning throughout the semester, he said, but he will still offer inIt will be pretty useful come exam time when TA and instructor help is in high demand, he said. Statics student Will Smith, a 20-year-old aerospace engineering sophomore, already has a Google+ account and said he will probably use the Hangout feature. Its certainly a lot more convenient, he said. I dont have to worry about running out of time hours. However, Japa Kulwatno, a 19-year-old materials engineering sophomore, said he doesnt think When someone is watching how you answer, its easier to cor rect them than going between a medium that is the computer, he said. Dickrell heard about Google+ Hangouts through Keivan Zolfaghari, UFs Google Student Ambassador. The 20-year-old food and research economics and psychology junior said he has talked to several UF professors about using Hangouts, but Dickrell is the only one using it so far. If professors held public Hangouts, they would only be able to see students public information, Zolfaghari said. Other universities are already using Google+ Hangouts. At Rice University, Teach for America used it to speak with a recruiter and corps members around the country, he said. The university president also took live questions via Hangouts. Zolfaghari also said students at Boise State University are using Hangouts for makeshift study sessions.

Read the story at alligator.org. ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterAt a Gainesville City Commission candidate debate Thursday night, District 1 candidates battled with ideas about job creation while at-large 1 candidates discussed spending in the city. Seven of the eight at-large 1 candidates attended the forum hosted by the Alachua County Democratic Black Caucus. Richard Selwach was absent. All three of the District 1 candidates attended. At-large 1 candidates shared their opinions about what is wrong with the current commission and how they would improve it. They touched on the citys biomass contract, wasteful spending and public transportation. Nathan Skop, Lauren Poe and Darlene Pifalo, candidates for the at-large 1 seat, directed comments toward one other regarding the biomass contract. Dejeon Cain, an at-large 1 candidate, interjected frequently about improving east Gainesville. District 1 commissioners were left with about 30 minutes to speak at the end of the forum. Ar mando Grundy, Ray Washington and Yvonne Hinson-Rawls were more confrontational toward each other about their ideas, and Grundy and Washington raised their voices.City Commission candidates debate job creation, city spending PRICES ARE UP 30 CENTS FROM LAST YEAR. DAVID WILLIAMSAlligator Contributing WriterStudents might be paying more money at the gas pump this year, which could push more students onto buses. The average price for a gallon of gas is about 30 cents more than it was this time last year, according to a statement made by AAA. David Denslow, a UF economics professor, said gas prices are relatively stable now and probably wont see major changes anytime soon. If prices increase, he said, they wont have a large impact on university transportation because there are plans in place for gas Regional Transit System is a viable alternative for those affected by gas prices, said Chip Skinner, spokesman for RTS. He said unless gas prices reach $5 a gallon, RTS compenjusting its budget before charging riders more.

Birdsong, who lives in North Carolina, has migrated south every year to preach to students since the 1980s. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSALT LAKE CITY A Utah man who lost his class ring six months after he bought it is getting the keepsake back 45 years later, thanks to some Facebook detective work. Brent Aguirre said his mother was disappointed when the 1966 Bonneville High School graduate lost the ring, which is gold-toned with a deep blue stone. Its a beautiful ring, he told KSL-TV. I remember mom and dad forked out pretty good money for it. He assumed the ring was at the bottom of Pineview Reservoir, not far from the Great Salt Lake, and The military service turned into an Air Force career that led him through nine different moves Ogden. It wasnt until the fall that Aguirre received a Facebook message from a couple in nearby Sandy, saying they wanted to get in touch with him. He brushed it off, but they contacted him again, telling him theyd found a ring with his name inscribed in cursive script. The couple still isnt sure where the ring came from. The husband said he cant remember where he originally found it, and the wife said the keepsake turned up when she was cleaning out a desk drawer. It was unbelievable, Aguirre said. I had written it off, and it was hard to believe they actually had my ring. Aguirre met up with the couple just after Christmas. More than four decades later, the ring no happy to have it on his pinky. He said he only has one regret: That his mother, once upset that her teenage son lost the valuable so quickly, was not around to see that hed found it at last.Utah man gets lost ring back 45 years later SHELBY WEBBAlligator Contributing WriterCelebrity chef and butter duchess Paula Deen announced Tuesday on NBCs Today Show that she has Type 2 diabetes. Deen, 64, said she was diagnosed three years ago. She has now become a spokeswoman for pharmaceutical group Novo Nordisk to endorse its diabetes drug, Victoza. Victoza is injected once a day by Type 2 diabetes patients to control their blood sugar levels. Critics pointed out that Deen continued to promote her Southern food after her diagnosis and came forward with the news the same day she announced her partnership with Novo Nordisk. Kathryn Parker, director of the Shands at UF Diabetes Self-Management Program, thinks the criticism is ridiculous. Im not sure what everyones so mad about, Parker said. Shes working with a phenomenal pharmaceutical company, and if she can enlighten the 60 million Americans who dont know they have diabetes, then more power to her. More than 28 million people know they have diabetes, Parker said, but the danger lies with those who are unaware that they are diabetic or pre-diabetic. Unlike diseases with obvious physical symptoms, diabetes is silent and only surfaces during a complication, she said. Though genetics plays a role in whether someone is at risk for diabetes, Parker said eating too much is the primary cause. She said if a womans waist is more than 35 inches or if a mans is more than 40 inches, he or she is at a higher risk for getting Type 2 diabetes. Blake Livingston, 24, was born with Type 1 diabetes, which Parker said affects about 10 percent of diabetics. He said if Deen wants to keep her reputation and take the drug companys money, she needs to show healthy food options. Livingston, a UF graduate student studying to become an acute care practitioner, said people need to get advice from their doctors instead of advertisements and broadcast personalities.UF diabetes program supports celebrity chefDeen Its a beautiful ring.

Lewis drove for about 50 feet, according to police. before their eyes? Dean asked. Literally, my OK, Im on this vehicle. How am I going to could have been like 100 times worse. She fell off of the hood, breaking her right wrist. But Lewis kept coming, she said. Dean had to roll out of the way before getting hit again. Jones, meanwhile, watched the whole event from the porch. I was the one she was having problems with, Jones said. I was the farthest person from her. I was just hanging back on the patio. Lewis was charged with aggravated battery. She declined to comment Thursday evening. Lewis was featured in a January 2010 edition of the Alligator. She participated in the Writing on the Wall Project, during which she was asked to write a hurtful statement on a brick on the Reitz Union North Lawn. She wrote WhoRE on her brick. I think we tend to prejudge others and go off what they have on rather than who they are, she said at the time. FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 CRIME, from page 1Student arrested, charged with aggravated battery after incidentChanges made to stop fraudnational elections. David Bergstein, spokesman for the Florida Democratic Party, said this bill targets Democratic voters, including students and low-income residents. The only reason the Republicans are trying to keep people from voting is because they know people wont be voting for them, said Bergstein, 23. They know they cant win in a fair deck. Erin Murphy, president of UF College Democrats, said the restrictions make registering people to vote unnecessarily complicated. When you are trying to register hundreds or thousands of voters, it forms downtown within 48 hours, Murphy said. The Florida Democratic Party plans on registering the voters they need under the new laws, Bergstein said. UF College Democrats registered more than 1,000 people on the last day of voter registration in 2008, she said, and 250 students registered last semester. Some students say the bill will eliminate voter fraud and will lead to I really dont think it is going to affect college students greatly, said Matt Pesek, 19-year-old UF religion and political science sophomore and publicans. At least for the meantime, these laws will make Florida elections more credible. The law ensures the supervisor of elections knows who is being registered and that the process is completed in a timely manner, he said. Just because a bank has never been robbed doesnt mean it doesnt upgrade its security, said Brian Hughes, spokesman for the Republican Party of Florida. He said voter fraud does still happen, and in November, the FBI arrested eight people, including the super visor of elections, for illegally casting absentee ballots in Madison County. We will get used to these laws them, Pesek said. VOTE, from page 1 They know they cant win in David Bergstein

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll ResultsWhat is the biggest hole the incoming recruiting class? Weed and the Gators marijuana? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. See story, page 19. MATT WATTS Florida sophomore defensive tackle Leon Orr was served with a notice to appear on two marijuana-related charges according to a University Police Department report. The arrest report describes a scene on Bradley Roberts searched Orrs dorm room in building eight of Keys Complex about a half hour before midnight. During the search, which Orr consented to, Roberts found a baggy of a green leafy substance, a glass pipe and rolling papers on Orrs desk and bedside table. The substance was tested and conhis rights, Orr admitted to ownership of the marijuana, pipe and papers, according to the report. There was no information in the report indicating why police were alerted to Orrs dorm room. He is being charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. Orrs court date is set for Feb. 8 at 9 a.m. Orr is the ninth arrest, and eighth player arrested, since Will Muschamp took over of those arrests have been for marijuana. Coach (Muschamp) is aware of the incident and has handled the matter, team spokesman Dan Apple said. A redshirt freshman last season, Orr registered 10 tackles and a sack. Originally from the Clearwater area, Orr was rated the No. 11 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com. Thursday night, Orr posted a message on his Twitter account (@MrLrgJack_44) that read: At the end of the day a mistake was made, and Ive learned from it. The background photo for Orrs Twitter page showed him wearing a backward hat, sunglasses and a T-shirt with a design that includes a marijuana leaf.

GAME AT 6 P.M. SATURDAY IN THE OCONNELL CENTER. JOHN BOOTHE When Mike Rosario was at Rutgers, playing weak defense was the only way he could play more minutes. On a Big East team just trying to save his energy for the offensive end, shooting and scoring loads for two years. I had to basically be an offensive threat the whole game in order for us to stay in the game and in order for us to try and win, Rosario said. Plus, playing 37 to 40 minutes a game and plus trying to do both ends of the court, it was a little bit too much for me. After transferring to Florida, Rosario soon realized his days of lackadaisical defense had to be over if he wanted to avoid moving further down UFs bench, and worse, into coach Billy Donovans dog house. played 20 or more minutes three times against mostly over-matched competition.

First and foremost, (the problem) was turnovers, coach Amanda Butler said. Weve just been valuing each possession more. Weve been paying more attention to our offense in practice and taking a little bit away from our defense. Butler may have had offense at the forefront of her gameplan this week, but UFs defense delivered arguably its best performance of the 2011-12 campaign against the Crimson Tide. points were the fewest scored by a Florida opponent this season, and the the lowest number allowed by the Gators since 2009.

LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Heading into Southeastern Conference play, the Gators prefer to focus on themselves rather than their opponents. Coach Rhonda Faehn said No. 8 Florida (2-0) isnt concerned with how well Kentucky (2-2, 0-1 SEC) performs when the Gators visit the Wildcats at the Memorial Coliseum in Lexington, Ky., tonight at 7 p.m. We dont ever necessarily look at whom were going against because we cant control who that is, Faehn said. We have our job to do. Each athlete knows where they want to make improvements, or what their goal is. The Gators are coming off two impressive victories a 196.025194.675 road win against North Car olina State on Jan. 6 and a 196.175191.875 throttling of Illinois-Chicago in their home opener last Friday. Kentuckys season, on the other hand, hasnt begun as smoothly. The Wildcats, who entered the season ranked 23rd in the nation, placed second in their opening quad meet at home against Bowling Green and behind No. 10 Oklahoma. Last Friday, UK was stomped by No. 3 Arkansas in its SEC opener, 196.650 to 191.975. The Wildcats are also getting accustomed to rookie head coach Tim Garrison, who previously served as an assistant coach at Nebraska for Despite a rough start, Kentucky might end up being UFs toughest challenge so far this season. But Florida isnt focused on how Big Blue Nations team performs. The mindset is just to compete just like weve trained, sophomore Alaina Johnson said. (Were going to) just go out there and stay in our own little bubble. For UFs top-ranked freshman class, tonights meet will serve as an introduction to the SEC, which cur rently features six of the nations top 25 teams. Kentucky is ranked seventh in the league with a team aver age of 193.150. Im not really thinking about competing against an SEC school, freshman Kytra Hunter said. Im just thinking about doing my routines to the best of my ability. Faehn said tonights event lineups will look different from last Fridays rotations against UIC. Hunter will not be an all-around year, Johnson will make her 2012 vault debut and juniors Ashane Dickerson and Marissa King will compete as all-arounders. Also, sophomore Mackenzie Caquatto is set to make her return to beam after she suffered an ankle the U.S. world championships team in September. Although Faehn said she wants the Gators to stick more landings and get better handstands on uneven bars, she doesnt want them to use up all of their strength against the Wildcats. We dont want anybody out there at their full-blown best right now, Faehn said. Theres three months of season left. FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 Alligator File PhotoFlorida sophomore Alaina Johnson will make her season debut on Gators staying focused for UK meet MEET ON SUNDAY AT 1 KYLE EVERSAlligator Writer When his throw landed, and the distance was measured, another entry was added under Kemal Mesics name in the books. Mesic, a senior thrower and current indoor Southeastern Conference champion, set a new Birmingham Crossplex and school record for distance in shot put at last weeks Alabama Invitational, the teams broke his old university record of 19.53m/64-1 with an NCAA qualifying mark of 19.95m/6505.50. Mesics throw was almost three meters longer than his closest competitor and helped him earn SEC Mens Field Athlete of the Week honors. It feels great. It shows that you trained hard successfully over the past fall, Mesic said. So everything comes together and you are happy, of course. The 6-foot-6, 275-pound Mesic is a native of Sarajevo, Bosnia, where he was active in fore college. He has been competing for UF since 2008.

Here in the United States, you have a lot more opportunities to be good, to be better, and to be the best, he said.

In last Sundays 62-58 win against the Tigers, the Gators saw a late 14-point lead whittled down to two in just four minutes. However, Florida actually added to its advantage in the second half Thursday due largely to improved post play. The Gators bested the Crimson Tide by only two points, 14-12, in the paint before halftime, surrendering eight points to Bama for ward Kyra Crosby. Conversely, Florida dominated down low in the second half, outscoring Alabama 18-8 in the paint. Junior forward Jennifer George and senior center Azania Stewart led the Gators effort in the post. George recorded her 11th doubledouble of the season, registering team-high marks with 15 points, 12 While the Gators warmly welcomed Georges return to double-double form a game after she struggled with six points and two rebounds against LSU, Stewarts performance drew the most enthusiastic praise. Stewart scored eight points, pulled down 10 boards and recorded four blocks in her best allaround statistical performance in SEC play this season. Its about time, I should say, just for our team in general. Were building and were on a run right now. George has shouldered Floridas offensive burden in the paint, providing the only consistent scoring threat for the Gators down low.

STAFF REPORTSunday will mark almost one year since the last time Floridas mens tennis team faced Baylor, but when the teams square off, the circumstances will be nearly identical. The No. 8 Gators will take the long trip to Waco, Texas, this weekend where they will face the No. 5 Bears in season. Following a solid showing at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships in Lexington, Ky., last week, the Gators will begin their dual-match schedule with a challenging out-ofconference opponent. Last year, Florida defeated Baylor 5-2, when the doubles team of Sekou Bangoura Jr. and Andrew Butz won a thrilling match to clinch the win. This years Bears boast three of the top 125 singles players in the country, including the trio of No. 20 Mate Zsiga, No. 52 Lars Behlen and No. 54 Roberto Maytin. Zsiga and Behlen are freshmen from Europe, the former coming from Hungary and the latter coming from Germany. Last year, Maytin was defeated in singles by Floridas Nassim Slilam. The Gators will also be rolling out three players of their own in the national top 125 for singles. Junior Bob van Overbeek, sophomore Spencer Newman and sophomore Andrew Butz will lead the charge of Gators looking to repeat last years success. Floridas No. 4 doubles team of Nassim Slilam and Billy Federhofer will also be in action following an exit in the Round of 16 at the SEC Indoor Championships. Baylors No. 17 team of Maytin and Marko Krickovic likely will be their opponents. Trying to ride a hot start to the spring season will be sophomore Michael Alford, who won the consolation singles title at the SEC Indoors last weekend. straight matches after dropping his opener in Lexington.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 PESTICIDE PROTECTS CITRUS PLANTS. ALLI LANGLEYAlligator WriterUF researchers have discovered an insecticide that comes from something humans eat every day. Methionine is an essential amino acid that humans get from food, and it can double as a pesticide against the invasive lime swallowtail caterpillar that could threaten Floridas citrus industry. an alternative to the bad chemical pesticides, said Delano Lewis, co-author of the study, which was published in the Journal of Economic Entomology. Because the lime swallowtail cant be legally brought into the U.S., researchers experimented using a similar species. The pesticide was 100 percent effective in killing the caterpillars on wild lime trees within three to four days. It is harmless to citrus plants, mammals and birds, Lewis said. In the soil, the amino acid would become fertilizer for the plants. Its better than most of the other chemicals out there because its insect you want, he said. The research was funded by UFs Division of Sponsored Research and the Florida Museum of Natural Historys Museum Associates Board.UF research: amino acid can double as pesticideSTUDENT LIFE KELSEY GRENTZERAlligator Contributing WriterA recently released report shows binge drinking is still prevalent throughout the country, and experts say UF is no exception. The report, published this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states that more than 90 percent of the alcohol youth drink is consumed while binge drinking. According to the CDCs January 2012 Vital Signs report, most binge drinkers in the U.S. are 18 to 34 years old. Individuals in that age range, for the most part, tend to be more accepting of binge drinking among their peers, said Lisa Merlo, a clinical psychologist at UF. It plays a larger role in social interactions compared to some other age groups. UF is no stranger to the issue of binge drinking. According to the 2010 survey, 41.6 percent of participatone sitting within two weeks of taking the survey. four or more alcoholic beverages within a short peAdditionally, more than half of UF students sur veyed reported having a hangover in the past year, and about one third admitted to having memory loss due to drinking. However, the survey stated that 5.8 percent or less of people who took the survey considered their drinking a problem. With that age group, regardless of whether youre in college or not, theres that feeling of invincibility that a lot of young people have, said Maureen Miller, coordinator for alcohol and drug prevention at UF. College students are not immune to the consequences of binge drinking, said Cara Bearison, 20year-old management sophomore. Its not fun for you because youll probably throw up and not remember anything, Bearison said. Youre putting yourself at risk for basically anything bad that could happen to you, so I think its dangerous. Despite high levels of alcohol abuse among students, percentages of alcohol use have decreased gradually since 2004, according to the UF survey. I like to think thats a positive sign kind of contributing to the work that we have been doing, Miller said. I feel really good about the direction that were heading.Binge drinking still prevalent in US Its not fun for you because youll probably throw up and not remember anything.Cara Bearisonmanagement sophomore

If you havent noticed, its Hollywood awards show season, and the stars are coming out.

Darts & Laurels First, we travel to the Midwest to throw a hows-thattax-hike-working-out-for-you DART to the state of Illinois, which increased state income taxes by 67 percent and also increased corporate taxes. Despite its effort to raise revenue through these tax hikes, the state is still facing an $8.5-billion shortfall, according to Illinois State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. Well, that worked. Next, we give an it-may-have-taken-him-a-while-tosound-out-the-writing-on-the-wall LAUREL to Rick Perry for dropping out of the GOP race. He did the best in the polls before the nation had a chance to hear him speak. After that, it was all downhill. Of course, we cant end the week without giving a standing-up-to-censorship LAUREL to Wikipedia and the nearly 7,000 other websites that blacked out their pages in protest of SOPA and PIPA, the anti-Internet piracy bills currently under consideration in Congress. We hope it pays off. On a related note, were throwing a dude-like-WTF-isup-with-like-Wikipedia DART to the high-school students who freaked out all over Twitter and other social networking sites on Wednesday when they couldnt use Wikipedia to do their science homework.

Scott Walker. He was, of course, arrested for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, but it sounded awesome. Finally, we throw a chill-the-eff-out DART to Gainesville criminals. It seems like we cant go a day without another report of armed robbery, attempted rape or murder. Law-abiding citizens of Gainesville: Make sure you never go out alone, and stay away from sketchy areas. Dont open your door to strangers, and be sure to keep all of the valuables in your car hidden. Have a fun and safe weekend, and be sure to check back next week. At a dinner reception in 1830, President Andrew Jackson proposed a toast, saying, Our Union: It must be preserved. Jacksons vice president, John Calhoun, gave a toast of his own, saying, The Union, next to our liberty most dear. The division demonstrated in these competing toasts a microcosm of the American political landscape today. The idea of liberty freedom from control, interference and obligation has virtually gone in, as Paul Craig Roberts of Press TV so aptly put it, a forgotten grave in a forgotten graveyard. Naturally, when governments are installed, they infringe on their peoples liberty through obligations such as taxes and restrictions like a minimum drinking age. The trade-off between liberty and some government interference is worth it when government interference is limited. Today, however, liberty is under assault from both par ties in the government. While each party appears to promote one aspect of liberty, each, often in the same breath, condemns liberty in other parts of life. Republicans advocate economic liberty, yet wish to control social liberty under the guise of morality. For instance, they are proponents of tax cuts, increasing the amount of your money that isnt forcibly taken by the government. Meanwhile, Republicans are also in favor of restricting your social liberty: Think of President Richard Nixon declaring a war on drugs and citing drugs as public enemy No. 1. Whether or not you are for drug use, criminalizing and arresting drug users inherently limits ones social liberty. Democrats are the reverse. On the one hand, they want to increase social liberty. For instance, they gener ally believe that people can marry whomever, regardless of gender. Yet Democrats limit economic liberty, favoring higher taxes to pay for expanded social services. Forcibly taking more of the money that people worked hard for restrains economic liberty. The irony is that both parties promote their own chunk of liberty and spurn the other for the same reason: morality. Republicans must restrict institutions like marriage because it is, according to them, only morally acceptable to allow a man and a woman to wed. Democrats are compelled to steal more of your money to take care of (usually) indigent people because they feel the moral obligation to help the poor. According to the logic of both parties, the people in Washington think certain aspects of liberty should be limited, because, of course, they know what is best for you. Both parties champion partial liberty, yet condemn total liberty. Contrary to what the politicians may imply, liberty is not something you can chop up. You either have it or you dont, almost like the item that precedes it in the Declaration of Independence: life. Liberty is not piecewise; its either whole or not really liberty. The assault on liberty can be seen as a function of government expansion. As the government grows, it takes more of the pie, and politicians believe in an incremental expansion, meaning the government should grow slightly each year, shaving off a little bit more liberty yearly. We ought to realize virtually all mainstream politicians halfheartedly believe in liberty, but there is hope. The light at the end of the tunnel is a frail man named Ron Paul. He believes in preserving the entirety of liberty, not one chunk or the other. In a debate last year, Paul introduced himself as the champion of liberty. Disregard what the political merry-go-round media espouse, and really listen to what these politicians are saying it may scare you. Chris Ceresa is a math and classics major at UF.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Students Party wrong to criticize Senate processAs Senate president, I want to address the deliber ate lies of Students Party Sen. Carly Wilson that appeared in yesterdays letter to the editor. The actions displayed in Tuesday nights meeting were a disgrace to the Senate process and, more important, to the students of UF. Following the Fall 2011 elections, I charged the election code revision committee to address any problems that may have occurred. The Students Party was given representation on the committee and, in fact, Sen. Wilson selected who would represent that party. Not once during the month and a half that the committee was reviewing the codes did any member of the Students Party submit suggestions. During the at the Jan. 10 Senate meeting, Students Party members did raise some concerns about the election codes, but they offered no amendments. It was announced that the election code committee would meet again for more revisions before the second, and code reform bill. All senators and nonsenators were encouraged to submit amendments and suggestions for the committee to review. Again, nothing was received from anyone in the Students Party. Several Unite senators, however, took the initiative to make additional amendments to address the concerns that were raised by Students Party members at the previous meeting. These amendments were passed unanimously by members of both parties at the Jan. 17 Senate meeting. Sen. Wilsons desperate attempt to blatantly lie about the election code revision process is nothing more than a publicity stunt and a prime example of partisan politics spent half as much time drafting meaningful legislation as she does making up lies about the Unite Party, UF and its students would be far better off. Andy Mason UF Senate presidentLetters to the EditorThe Internet is often compared to the Wild West due to its anything-goes, uncharted nature. As users, the occasionally unruly but excitingly unbound environment has pros and cons; we worry about Last fall, Congress introduced the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, to serve as the new sheriff in town, aiming to bring some order to these here parts. SOPAs trusty deputy, the PROTECT IP Act (short for the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act) also gained traction in the Senate, including co-sponsorships from both Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. Aside from forcing late nights at the Capitol Hill Acstirred up controversy. The biggest concern is the potential of a less free and open Internet, as websites suspected of copyright infringement and piracy could face steep consequences, including blocked access from service providers and search engines. This indirect form of censorship threatens the Internet as weve known it. As an act of protest against SOPA, Wikipedia blacked out its website Wednesday, which you may have noticed when you tried to look up Rachel McAdams age or the overall population of the Greater Stockholm metropolitan area. Reddit, among other sites, joined the blackout, too. Google, eBay, Twitter and Facebook also voiced opposition to the bills. These arent random niche websites contesting the legislation; if there were a Mount Rushmore for the Internet, those four faces would be on it. The objection to the bills rests in that weve grown accustomed to the services that the Internet provides, even if there is some infringement. Its similar to being in a third world country and seeing a bootlegged T-shirt with Bart Simpson or Tweety Bird on it. Vendors probably didnt check with Matt Groening or either Warner brother to legally display these cartoons wearing the countrys colors while playing soccer, but, who cares; let it slide, tends to be the response. The practice is seemingly harmless and doesnt merit strict enforcement, even if use of the image is technically prohibited. ownership rights for intellectual property can be tricky. Trekkies dont upload episodes of their favorite show to hurt the franchise; their goal is to further the shows and production, because even if consumers arent paying a price to download a movie or song, someone paid a price to provide it. Its easy to point to rich executives, actors and musicians, but technicians and stagehands The reality of the Internet is that weve progressed by using it without the looming regulations. Were we spoiled with too much of a good thing? Probably. But it wasnt monitored closely enough early on, so we dove in. Is it now worth limiting access to information and material that has been both useful and enjoyable? Probably not. So, companies should look to modify their business models to correspond with the reality of our Internet habits. The recreational and productive value of the Internet in its current form is evident; encouragA tweet opposing SOPA said the act is trying to put ing that piracy and infringement are problems, but the solution should be adjusting to demand, not overreacting to the problem.

ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterHomes that have cars parked all over the yard may soon need a driveway. The Gainesville City Commission decided Thursday to draft a petition that would establish parking regulations for multi-family homes around UFs campus. This would include the area bordered by Southwest 13th Street, University Avenue and Southwest Sixth Street. Many of these are single-family homes zoned as multi-family homes, meaning one house includes more than one residence. parked in the yard, said Commissioner Thomas Hawkins. Parking spaces would have to be accessed by an approved driveway, and cars would not be allowed to drive over a curb to park, according to the draft plan. Landlords acquired these homes before current zoning codes were established, he said. Prior to current codes, landlords didnt have to submit a parking plan, and cars could be parked anywhere on the property. Hawkins said parking on these properties destroys curbs and sidewalks. After cars continually park on grass, dirt begins to surface and dumps into the citys storm water system. Hawkins said this counteracts money from the city aimed to treat storm water. Mulch or gravel could be used to prevent erosion, according to the draft plan. If passed, the amended ordinance would allow the city to approach these homeowners and create a parking plan. This is long overdue, Hawkins said. 8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffDistrict 2 Commissioner Todd Chase speaks at a Gainesville City Commission meeting Thursday afternoon at City Hall.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSALT LAKE CITY A Utah man who lost his class ring six months after he bought it is getting the keepsake back 45 years later, thanks to some Facebook detective work. Brent Aguirre said his mother was disappointed when the 1966 Bonneville High School graduate lost the ring, which is gold-toned with a deep blue stone. Its a beautiful ring, he told KSL-TV. I remember mom and dad forked out pretty good money for it. He assumed the ring was at the bottom of Pineview Reservoir, not far from the Great Salt Lake, and The military service turned into an Air Force career that led him through nine different moves Ogden. It wasnt until the fall that Aguirre received a Facebook message from a couple in nearby Sandy, saying they wanted to get in touch with him. He brushed it off, but they contacted him again, telling him theyd found a ring with his name inscribed in cursive script. The couple still isnt sure where the ring came from. The husband said he cant remember where he originally found it, and the wife said the keepsake turned up when she was cleaning out a desk drawer. It was unbelievable, Aguirre said. I had written it off, and it was hard to believe they actually had my ring. Aguirre met up with the couple just after Christmas. More than four decades later, the ring no happy to have it on his pinky. He said he only has one regret: That his mother, once upset that her teenage son lost the valuable so quickly, was not around to see that hed found it at last.Utah man gets lost ring back 45 years later SHELBY WEBBAlligator Contributing WriterCelebrity chef and butter duchess Paula Deen announced Tuesday on NBCs Today Show that she has Type 2 diabetes. Deen, 64, said she was diagnosed three years ago. She has now become a spokeswoman for pharmaceutical group Novo Nordisk to endorse its diabetes drug, Victoza. Victoza is injected once a day by Type 2 diabetes patients to control their blood sugar levels. Critics pointed out that Deen continued to promote her Southern food after her diagnosis and came forward with the news the same day she announced her partnership with Novo Nordisk. Kathryn Parker, director of the Shands at UF Diabetes Self-Management Program, thinks the criticism is ridiculous. Im not sure what everyones so mad about, Parker said. Shes working with a phenomenal pharmaceutical company, and if she can enlighten the 60 million Americans who dont know they have diabetes, then more power to her. More than 28 million people know they have diabetes, Parker said, but the danger lies with those who are unaware that they are diabetic or pre-diabetic. Unlike diseases with obvious physical symptoms, diabetes is silent and only surfaces during a complication, she said. Though genetics plays a role in whether someone is at risk for diabetes, Parker said eating too much is the primary cause. She said if a womans waist is more than 35 inches or if a mans is more than 40 inches, he or she is at a higher risk for getting Type 2 diabetes. Blake Livingston, 24, was born with Type 1 diabetes, which Parker said affects about 10 percent of diabetics. He said if Deen wants to keep her reputation and take the drug companys money, she needs to show healthy food options. Livingston, a UF graduate student studying to become an acute care practitioner, said people need to get advice from their doctors instead of advertisements and broadcast personalities.UF diabetes program supports celebrity chefDeen Its a beautiful ring. I remember mom and dad forked out pretty good money for it.Brent Aguirrering owner

pot. She was yelling, Jones said. She was like, Yes, DeCara, I dont like you. Thats why I looked at you like that. Lewis then walked into her friends apartment. Jones went to her own and hung out on the back porch, where she and friends ate Taco Bell and smoked cigarettes. About 15 minutes later, Lewis walked by. Jones porch looks out onto Southwest Third Avenue, where Lewis car was parked. Whats up, Jones said. Lewis screamed, threatening to run Jones and her friends over. She started her car, pulled a U-turn and stopped in front of the porch, Jones said. Lewis repeatedly drove forward and reversed, yelling at Jones and her friends. She just kept telling me to get in the middle of the road, Jones said. Instead, Jones friend Cornelia Dean walked to the brick sidewalk. Dean, a psychology and classics junior, also happened to be friends with Lewis. Get out of the car or go home, Dean said. Lewis didnt. She gunned it. The right side of the car hopped over the curb and Lewis steered toward Dean. windshield. She lay across the hood, legs dangling off the front. Lewis drove for about 50 feet, according to police. before their eyes? Dean asked. Literally, my OK, Im on this vehicle. How am I going to could have been like 100 times worse. She fell off of the hood, breaking her right wrist. But Lewis kept coming, she said. Dean had to roll out of the way before getting hit again. Jones, meanwhile, watched the whole event from the porch. I was the one she was having problems with, Jones said. I was the farthest person from her. I was just hanging back on the patio. Lewis was charged with aggravated battery. She declined to comment Thursday evening. Lewis was featured in a January 2010 edition of the Alligator. She participated in the Writing on the Wall Project, during which she was asked to write a hurtful statement on a brick on the Reitz Union North Lawn. She wrote WhoRE on her brick. I think we tend to prejudge others and go off what they have on rather than who they are, she said at the time. FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 CRIME, from page 1Student arrested, charged with aggravated battery after incidentChanges made to stop fraudnational elections. David Bergstein, spokesman for the Florida Democratic Party, said this bill targets Democratic voters, including students and low-income residents. The only reason the Republicans are trying to keep people from voting is because they know people wont be voting for them, said Bergstein, 23. They know they cant win in a fair deck. Erin Murphy, president of UF College Democrats, said the restrictions make registering people to vote unnecessarily complicated. When you are trying to register hundreds or thousands of voters, it forms downtown within 48 hours, Murphy said. The Florida Democratic Party plans on registering the voters they need under the new laws, Bergstein said. UF College Democrats registered more than 1,000 people on the last day of voter registration in 2008, she said, and 250 students registered last semester. Some students say the bill will eliminate voter fraud and will lead to I really dont think it is going to affect college students greatly, said Matt Pesek, 19-year-old UF religion and political science sophomore and publicans. At least for the meantime, these laws will make Florida elections more credible. The law ensures the supervisor of elections knows who is being registered and that the process is completed in a timely manner, he said. Just because a bank has never been robbed doesnt mean it doesnt upgrade its security, said Brian Hughes, spokesman for the Republican Party of Florida. He said voter fraud does still happen, and in November, the FBI arrested eight people, including the supervisor of elections, for illegally casting absentee ballots in Madison County. We will get used to these laws them, Pesek said. VOTE, from page 1 They know they cant win in David Bergstein

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll ResultsWhat is the biggest hole the incoming recruiting class? Weed and the Gators marijuana? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. See story, page 19. MATT WATTS Florida sophomore defensive tackle Leon Orr was served with a notice to appear on two marijuana-related charges according to a University Police Department report. The arrest report describes a scene on Bradley Roberts searched Orrs dorm room in building eight of Keys Complex about a half hour before midnight. During the search, which Orr consented to, Roberts found a baggy of a green leafy substance, a glass pipe and rolling papers on Orrs desk and bedside table. The substance was tested and conhis rights, Orr admitted to ownership of the marijuana, pipe and papers, according to the report. There was no information in the report indicating why police were alerted to Orrs dorm room. He is being charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. Orrs court date is set for Feb. 8 at 9 a.m. Orr is the ninth arrest, and eighth player arrested, since Will Muschamp took over of those arrests have been for marijuana. Coach (Muschamp) is aware of the incident and has handled the matter, team spokesman Dan Apple said. A redshirt freshman last season, Orr registered 10 tackles and a sack. Originally from the Clearwater area, Orr was rated the No. 11 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com. Thursday night, Orr posted a message on his Twitter account (@MrLrgJack_44) that read: At the end of the day a mistake was made, and Ive learned from it. The background photo for Orrs Twitter page showed him wearing a backward hat, sunglasses and a T-shirt with a design that includes a marijuana leaf.

GAME AT 6 P.M. SATURDAY IN THE OCONNELL CENTER. JOHN BOOTHE When Mike Rosario was at Rutgers, playing weak defense was the only way he could play more minutes. On a Big East team just trying to save his energy for the offensive end, shooting and scoring loads for two years. I had to basically be an offensive threat the whole game in order for us to stay in the game and in order for us to try and win, Rosario said. Plus, playing 37 to 40 minutes a game and plus trying to do both ends of the court, it was a little bit too much for me. After transferring to Florida, Rosario soon realized his days of lackadaisical defense had to be over if he wanted to avoid moving further down UFs bench, and worse, into coach Billy Donovans dog house. played 20 or more minutes three times against mostly over-matched competition. But as the Gators hit the meat of their non-conference schedule, Rosario improving defense ahead of LSU matchupWOMENS BASKETBALL JOE MORGANJordan Jones released a shot from the midcourt Gators logo as the shot-clock buzzer sounded. The redshirt senior guards desperation heave found nothing but net, kicking off a bama. Kind of lucky, I guess, Jones said of the shot. Good fortune and solid transition play on Thursday night in the OConnell Center. Florida went into halftime with a 33-17 lead, marking the second consecutive game the Gators have scored 30-plus points in the came on the heels of back-to-back losses to failed to reach 20 points before the half. First and foremost, (the problem) was turnovers, coach Amanda Butler said. Weve just been valuing each possession more. Weve been paying more attention to our offense in practice and taking a little bit away from our defense. Butler may have had offense at the forefront of her gameplan this week, but UFs defense delivered arguably its best performance of the 2011-12 campaign against the Crimson Tide. points were the fewest scored by a Florida opponent this season, and the the lowest number allowed by the Gators since 2009.

LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer Heading into Southeastern Conference play, the Gators prefer to focus on themselves rather than their opponents. Coach Rhonda Faehn said No. 8 Florida (2-0) isnt concerned with how well Kentucky (2-2, 0-1 SEC) performs when the Gators visit the Wildcats at the Memorial Coliseum in Lexington, Ky., tonight at 7 p.m. We dont ever necessarily look at whom were going against because we cant control who that is, Faehn said. We have our job to do. Each athlete knows where they want to make improvements, or what their goal is. The Gators are coming off two impressive victories a 196.025194.675 road win against North Car olina State on Jan. 6 and a 196.175191.875 throttling of Illinois-Chicago in their home opener last Friday. Kentuckys season, on the other hand, hasnt begun as smoothly.

Hunter will not be an all-around year, Johnson will make her 2012 vault debut and juniors Ashane Dickerson and Marissa King will compete as all-arounders. Also, sophomore Mackenzie Caquatto is set to make her return to beam after she suffered an ankle the U.S. world championships team in September.
