Storm warnings were issued Tuesday across a swath of islands in the Caribbean, including Mar tinique, Guadeloupe and St. Mar tin. The National Hurricane Center Richard Brown, of Taunton said he went into Gulf Taunton recently and asked for a $5 Blue Ice 7s ticket, but the clerk was distracted and instead gave him a Sizzlin 7s ticket. Brown selected the cash option on the prize and received a onetime lump-sum payment of about $430,000 after taxes. He plans to use the money for a new roof on his home and to take a trip to San Francisco. The store gets a $10,000 commission. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLike NASA rover, family switches over to Mars timeLA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. One California family of on Mars time this summer. Oh had to switch to Martian time after the rover Curiosity landed on Mars early this month. His wife and three children decided to tag along to see what it is like. A day on Mars is about 40 minutes longer than an Earth day, so theyve been waking up, sleeping and eating at odd hours. One day last week, breakfast was at 3 p.m. Every mission to Mars, hundreds of NASA scientists and engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory make the time change for three months, but its unusual for an entire family to join in. The kids will be on Mars time for about a month. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS says Isaac has maximum sustained winds near 40 mph but is expected to strengthen. The storm is about 500 miles east of Guadeloupe and is moving west near 17 mph. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNATIONALYour ad here? NY brothers promote toilet paper adsRYE BROOK, N.Y. Two brothers from a New York City suburb have an advertising concept thats on a roll a roll of toilet paper. Bryan and Jordan Silverman are creators of toilet tissue printed with ads, and sometimes with coupon codes that can be read by cellphones. The Journal-News said in a story Sunday that the brothers expect their product to appear this fall in the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library. Jordan Silverman, 22, came up with the idea for Star Toilet Paper in 2010. His 18-year-old brother tells the newspaper that he was initially skeptical but came to see it as advertising to a really captive audience.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 National voter turnout increased marginally from 2010 primaryof the political aisle. Republican races in Alachua County saw a 29 percent turnout with 12,814 registered residents voting. In the Democratic race, turnout was 26.3 percent with 19,946 voters going to the polls, Election Chief Deputy Will Boyett said. These elections were bumped up from the end of August to Aug. 14 because the state Legislature wanted to make sure the Republican National Convention, which begins Monday in Tampa, wouldnt get in the way of the primary elections, among other reasons, said Supervisor of Elections Pam Car penter. Voter turnout countrywide showed a 0.5 percent increase from 2010s primary election. In the Republican race for the Alachua County Commission District 1 seat, John Martin pulled ahead of Kevin Riordan and Brandon Kutner with 5,135 votes to win the spot. Cur rent Commissioner Mike Byerly won against Roberta Lopez with 11,217 votes to clinch the Democratic county commission race. Martin and Byerly will face off for the District 1 seat in the Nov. 6 general election. For the Alachua County School Board District 4 seat, candidate Leanetta McNealy and incumbent Barbara Sharpe received 12,493 and 10,864 votes respectively. Because the school board election is nonpartisan, Sharpe or McNealy needs 50 percent or more of the votes to claim the seat. A runoff election will be held in November. Robert Hutch Hutchinson and Ken Cornell went head to head for the Democratic County Commission District 3 seat. Hutchinson won with 11,150 votes, and he will face former County Commissioner Jean Calderwood in November. Ted Yoho, a Gainesville veterinarian and Tea Party member, defeated U.S. Rep. Clifford Stearns with 5,406 votes, or 45.51 percent, in the U.S. Congressional District 3 election. Stearns, a 20-year Congress veteran, conceded to Yoho on Aug. 15. For the second time in two elections, Ed Crapo defeated Alonzo V. Perkins for the Alachua County property appraiser position. Crapo secured another four-year term. In the race for U.S. Senator, Connie Mack won the Republican vote with 661,341 votes statewide over Mike McCalister, Marielena Stuart and Dave Weldon. In Alachua County, Mack took 7,462 votes, or 62.91 percent. For the Democratic race, incumbent Bill Nelson defeated Glenn A. Burkett with 698,886 votes statewide. Countywide, Nelson pulled 80.05 percent, or 15,502, of the votes. For winners of the Republican and Democratic races, the upcoming Nov. 6 general election.

Its bittersweet, he said. Youre excited to see all of these new people here, but you dont want to leave. The duo visited Broward, Beaty and Jennings Halls and a handful of other residence halls in a golf cart. Levine stopped the cart every time he saw someone walking, leaned out and offered the soaked pedestrians water. I know how it feels, Levine said. He still remembers when he dropped off scene that, he said, was much more chaotic than it was on Friday. Im happy to see how much effort UF goes to to make it a smoother and more enjoyable experience for families, he said. Other veterans of the move-in rush agreed that the process has vastly improved. Kelly Korman, a womens studies graduate student who has been a student resiman move-in was stressful for her whole family. That day was chaos, Korman said.

New Year, New LeafTry new things in collegeWelcome home, Gators. Most of you are returning, and were glad to have you back. But about 6,500 of you are brand-new freshmen, and its whelming. No one is telling you where to be or what to do. There are no curfews, no dress codes, no detention or hall passes. For some, this will translate to many nights spent wander ing Midtown and a lot of missed morning lectures. Enjoy it. Turlington Hall isnt the only place where you can get an education. And dont let your professors scare you getting a B in your 1000-level psychology class isnt going to sink your GPA. There are more important lessons to learn here. Everyone will tell you that college is what you make of it, and thats true. in medicine, politics or activism. Or you might end up with a dual degree in botany and Russian, because those were the only classes you liked. You might even decide that UF isnt for you and thats OK, too. Either way, dont be afraid to chase your passions. Theres no magical combination of classes that will result in a guaranteed job offer upon graduation, so you might as well do some exploring along the way. UF offers more than 100 majors, and there are close to a 1,000 student organizations, most of which meet on campus. Now is the time to take yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new. If you get invited to an ultimate Frisbee tournament, a hula-hoop jam, a vegan Thanksgiving feast, underwater hockey practice or a Hare Krishna drum circle, go. Say yes to any new experience you can, within reason. (If someone invites you to a Juggalo festival in rural North Central Florida, its OK to politely decline, and then unfriend him or her on Facebook.) of college, that you did something, saw something or learned something interesting outside of a classroom. Of course, dont forget to hit the books now and then failGPA. And dont worry if college isnt all its cracked up to be at ably go to a couple parties, be genuinely interested in at least one of your classes and see the Gators win a football game. Its all part of the experience, and its all necessary. Youll get into the swing of things soon. Just dont forget to call home on the weekends.

I offer you this Girls will start wearing brightly colored dresses and oversized plumage, prancing about with their arms behind their backs and dying their hair blond (even when blond doesnt quite suit their complexion). This is an illness by the name of Really Unnerving Sorority Hubbub (or RUSH). From my observations, it seems to last about a week, after which the girls receive envelopes that either cure them of the illness (which involves crying), or causes the ailment to become permanent (which involves squealing). Youll also start to see very approachable-looking Protestants standing along the major walkways outside of the major dorms, bearing toothy grins and cold bottles of wabut all the signs are there. If you accept the water, theyre something with some contests and free food. seem like innocuous fun, but then youve got a plate of food and suddenly people start talking about Jesus. I can tell you not many things are more uncomfortable than a surprise Jesus talk. Its like ordering a Cheesy Gordita Crunch only to receive a Cheese Roll-Up. The major political party representatives will also be on campus assaulting you until you register to vote as they damn well should! Its ridiculous how lazy and self-absorbed our generation is when it comes to voting. If a majority of students in Florida had voted back in 2010, we might not be stuck with Rick Scott right now. Thats how close that race was. (And if youre going to use one of the campus organizations for voter registration, use the Democrats. They have more students working for them than the Republicans.) Youll also meet people (usually girls) who will openly say they oppose drinking alcohol underage for moral reasons. Theyll say things like, Why would anyone want any passerby being treated for a psychiatric condition feel awkward. When encountering these people, pelt them with copies of The Great Gatsby or Crime and Punishment. Both are equally effective at repelling them and their inability to differentiate between morality and the law. The Unite Party in Student Government is a political boss machine run by the rich folk in Greek life. The partys methods of winning elections are pretty unethical and no one except this newspapers staff cares. And lastly, stop buying clickers. Those infernal contraptions cost way too much money, dont transfer over from class to class, and are used mostly to create an audience for bad lecturers. If everyone stopped buying them, professors would have no choice but to stop requiring them. Seriously, the power is yours. Hope you all have a better year at UF than our football team will.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorPresidential Candidate Gary Johnson deserves attentionThere is a storm brewing in America that will rock the world if it gets any worse. Americans are at the breaking point with a bad economy, corrupt banks and bought-out government ofTrillions of dollars have been sucked out of the middle class and into the bank accounts of a privileged few. Americans are threatening to revolt at the ballot box. Make no mistake about it, people are angry, and they are not going to take the twoparty system anymore. In this time, as many are calling the year of the Libertarian, people are taking a second look at a system that worked for so many years, allowing individuals to remain free to choose their own paths and live free of massive, bloated government. Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson now carries the banner for those oppressed by corruption, debt and injustice. The former governor of New Mexico never raised taxes, and he vetoed more bad legislation than all other governors combined in his eight years. Buckle your seat belts, America, for there is a new man in town who is here to topple a very corrupt system. Jote Thompson Gainesville resident Alligator misses the mark on Mars storyI was on campus yesterday and picked up a copy of the Alligator, which had a story on the cover titled NASA sends rover to Mars, awes students. This is good because students dont However, the third paragraph of the story gave the U.S. space effort a little more credit than it deserves. The story stated, A U.S. rover the size of a small car landed safely on Mars at 1:31 a.m. Eastern time Monday before heading back to Earth. Wow. A Mars return mission. I thought that was years away! The article goes on to say Curiosity is the worlds second rover that stopped working shortly after landing. Actually, 14 spacecraft, out of 40 attempts, have landed on Mars. But it is 14. Its kind of mind boggling not just that an ignorant writer should be given the assignment, but also that no one else who many editors and copy editors looked at it? Ah, well.

OConnell Center. IT WILL BE DISPLAYED AT UF FOR FIVE YEARS. SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterGainesville is home to a new record-breaking reptile but its not an alligator. Researchers with the Florida Museum of Natural History dissected a 17-foot-7-inch Burmese python Aug. 10, the largest of its kind ever found in the state. The 164.5-pounder was pregnant with 87 eggs and broke previous state records for pythons. This thing is monstrous; its about a foot wide, Florida Museum herpetology collection manager Kenneth Krysko said in a press release. Krysko was out of town and unavailable for an interview. The Florida Museum received the specimen from the Everglades National Park as part of a U.S. Department of the Interior project researching methods for managing Floridas invasive Burmese python problem, according to the release. After the scientists complete their investigation, the museum will display the snake for about the Everglades for more exhibition. Museum biologist Rob Robins said athough the snake is well within the average length of the species, the fact that they are growing to be so large in their non-native environment is troubling. Theyre very cryptic and be bigger ones out there, Robins said. The longest Burmese python previously found in Florida measured 16.8 feet. Another was pregnant with 85 eggs. The spike in python population led the state to pass a series of laws regarding the snakes. Its illegal to own them as pets or to transport them across state lines without a federal permit. People can hunt the pythons in certain areas in some spring months if they have a hunting license and required permits. At UF, researchers examined the snakes stomach, which contained feathers that will be idenThe pythons prey can include birds, deer, bobcats and alligators. By inspecting the snake and the contents of its stomach, researchers hope to learn more about the elusive reptile and how to stop the snakes from spreading.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 SAVE THE RACKS Editors Note: A version of this story originally ran in the July 19 issue of the Alligator. THEY MUST BE REMOVED BY AUG. 15. ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterUF administrators have demanded the Alligator remove 19 of its orange newspaper racks from some of the most visible parts of campus. On July 3, the Alligator received an email from Amy Hass, UF associate vice president, stating the racks must be removed by Aug. 15. On Dec. 11, 2009, without contacting the Alligator, UFs Board of Trustees approved a rule that would prohibit distribution of all publications on campus unless approved by the UF vice president for business affairs, according to information provided by Alligator attorney Thomas Julin. Around the same time, a plan was drafted to remove privately owned news racks and to replace them with modular racks. Publishers who wished to continue distribution on campus would have to sign a licensing agreement and lease space in the universityowned black modular racks. UF did eventually notify the Alligator and other publishers of the plan in Fall 2010, after the university bought several of the modular racks and started placing them on campus. Alligator representatives objected, noting the change could hurt distribution and that the lease is an unfair tax on free speech. During a July 2011 meeting between Alligator representatives and UF administrators, administrators denied the plan would hurt readership or violate rights, but they allowed the Alligator to conduct an impact study. The Alligator collected data on the orange racks during Fall 2011, racks in Spring 2012 to measure differences in distribution. At the end of the Spring semester, the Alligator presented its data to retired professor David Denslow and asked him to determine if the change to modular racks would impact distribution. On July 3, before Denslow vised the Alligator it would continue with its plan, regardless of Were disappointed that the university has been unwilling to wait for the results of a serious study of the actions it proposes, Julin said. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the university wants to move forward and is willing to work with the Alligator. The door is open, she said. The Alligator launched a campaign against the changes July 19 at alligator.org/savetheracks. Contact Erin Jester at ejester@ alligator.org.UF demands Alligator racks removal Editors Note: A version of this story originally ran on alligator. org on Aug. 10.SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterUF has decided to postpone the removal of 19 newspaper racks until Jan. 6. Earlier this week, the university informed the Alligator it would continue the rack removal planned for Aug. 15, forcing the Alligator either to move into universityowned racks or not distribute on UFs central campus. Alligator attorney Tom Julin a complaint against the univer would not be postponed. But because of the postponement, Julin said the judge does not need to rule on the injunction before Aug. 15. However, a per manent injunction and a lawsuit are still pending. He said this will give the paper and the university time to work on a mutual agreement. Before that date arrives, we would have reached a solution that is satisfactory to everyone, Julin said. The university believes the Alligator has no basis for the lawsuit. But, if the Alligator chooses to litigate, we will defend vigorously, a university statement said. UF informed Julin on Aug. 9 it would waive the required fee to be in the modular units. This decision was decided before the lawsuit, according to the statement. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.UF postpones removal of Alligator racks

Editors Note: A version of this story originally ran in the June 12 issue of the Alligator.ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterDiane McFarlin spent most of her adult life on the road between Sarasota and Gainesville, but for now shes here to stay. McFarlin, publisher of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and a 1976 alumna of UFs College of Jour nalism and Communications, was selected as the new dean of the college. I just could not be prouder to be named dean of a school that is already so distinguished, she said. As of Jan. 1, McFarlin will succeed John Wright, who served as interim dean since July 2006 and was named permanent dean in December 2007. As dean, McFarlin said she hopes to help manage partnerships with stakeholders in the college and explore multimedia opportunities, including the 21st Century Newsroom in Weimer Hall. We extend a hearty welcome to Diane, advertising chairman John Sutherland wrote in an email. She has the experience, expertise and leadership ability to help us continue our pursuit of excellence. Unlike other candidates for the deans position, McFarlin doesnt hold a masters degree or a Ph.D. When she was nominated, her would consider someone without advanced degrees. My whole career has been in the profession, she said. However, she said, half of the top 10 journalism schools in the U.S. have deans whose backgrounds are in their profession, not academia. She said this trend is indicative the face of journalism is changing, and colleges want leaders who have experience dealing with those problems. McFarlin also thinks UF was looking for a dean with leadership experience. As former executive editor of the Gainesville Sun, president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and managing editor and publisher of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, she said, I know what comes with a position like that, both the respect and the great reward. Mike Foley, a professor in the journalism department, thinks it was a bold decision. Shes not your traditional academic, he said. Shes the consummate professional. After graduating from UF in 1976, McFarlin started her career as a reporter for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, where she was named managing editor by the time she was 31. She left to become executive editor of the Gainesville Sun in 1987 but returned to the HeraldTribune three years later as executive editor. McFarlin has been the publisher of the Herald-Tribune since 1999. Foley, who has known McFar lin for more than 25 years, said the selection comes at the right time for her and the college, which is ready to help pass her experience to students. We continue to try to make sure that we are preparing students for the brave new world of journalism, and shes on the front lines, Foley said. Under McFarlins direction, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune launched a 24-hour cable news channel in Although McFarlins primary background is in print media, telecommunications chairman David Ostroff said hes glad she has some experience with television. Its going to be a learning curve for all of us, he said. Ostroff said all of the candidates were told the college is in dire need of more faculty. Hes looking forward to expanding in that respect, as well as working with the dean to enhance the graduate multimedia program and the TV production facilities. Were delighted to have somebody that already has a great feeling for the college, he said. McFarlin will stay with the Herald-Tribune for another three weeks. Then she plans to travel, making visits to other journalism programs and attending confer ences to prepare herself for her new job with the Gator Nation. Shes looking forward to getting to know the faculty and students and welcomes the challenge of leading one of the top journalism schools in the country. I am happiest when Im on the learning curve, she said.

Each contest is searching for a different type of talent from cooking to relationship advice. Magruder was selected as a vlogger, or video blogger. Hes focusing his channel more on sports now and plans to start a weekly sports show starting next Sunday. He described it as Tosh.0, but just sports and much shorter. Magruder isnt the only Gator to achieve YouTube fame. Toby Turner, who also graduated with a degree in telecommunication production, has 658,121 subscribers to his channel and more than 150 million video views. He even moved out to California to make his videos as a fulltime job. Even more popular is GloZell, a musical theater graduate who has almost 200 million video views and has plans to host her own television show. Magruder hopes to join these other Gator YouTube sensations and hopes that UF and the world are ready for his big break. Prepare for greatness, he said with a laugh, because I have so many great videos just waiting to be shot. Im about to go into fulltime beast mode.

THE ICHETUCKNEE RIVER MAY TEMPORARILY SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterIn increasingly dry North Central Florida, lakes are drying and brittle by the week. The Florida Park Service warned on the Ichetucknee River website that due to extreme drought conditions and historic low water levels in the Ichetucknee River, there is potential for occasional temporary recreational tubing closures this summer at the parks North entrance. If things dont change, we will see more closures, said Chris Bird, Alachua County environmental director. Bird said hes been working with the environment in Alachua County for 22 years, and hes never seen water levels this low, especially in the springs. Poe Springs is at a record low water level, and Bird said the county estimated that the spring would making it unsafe for swimmers. Its like a public swimming pool with no chlorine, Bird said. The bacteria levels could spike, and swimmers could end up getting sick. ly because it draws water from a much larger area, Bird said. There are two main causes for the lack of water: a statewide drought and overpumping of aquifers. On average, each Floridian uses about 155 gallons of water each day, Bird said. About half of that water is used for watering yards. Without enough rainfall to replenish the water people use, levels have fallen unusually low. UF associate professor Taylor Stein said another issue facing recreational bodies of water during a drought is overcrowding. to at least one of the springs, even if it is closed to swimmers. People go to Ginnie to party more often, Stein said, laughing. They might be just as happy sitting on the side drinking beer as they would be in the water.

Now, Roberts is a part of the international 8,000-member team that will carry the Olympic torch through the U.K. and end at the opening ceremony July 27.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 29 WIDE RECEIVERS By JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Floridas wide receivers were virtually nonexistent much of last season. Now, even though the unit is nearly identical to what it was a year ago, expectations are It wasnt a wide receiver that led UF in receptions last year, but departed running back Chris to replace not only his production but also improve on a disappointing 2011 performance, someone will have to step up. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said the Gators receivers have the ability to do so. There is game-changing talent, Pease said. We have speed and guys that can stretch the dent that can do that naturally. Deonte Thompson led all UF wide receivers in catches in 2011 with just 21. No other Southeastern Conference wide receiver who led his them had more than 50. Coaches are hoping Quinton Dunbar takes a step forward to try to buck that trend. Dunbar received high praise from both coaches and teammates during spring practice as a redshirt freshman in 2011, but he made just 14 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns last fall. He caught When asked early in fall camp who he thought the best receiver had been to that point, sophomore cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy was blunt with his response. Quinton Dunbar because hes fast and he can get open, Purifoy said. During Saturdays open practice, Dunbar showed off his athletic ability with two catches of more than 40 yards on plays in which Jeff Driskel threw the ball behind him, forcing him to come back and make a leaping grab. Pease said he would like to have six to eight wideouts he is at Texas A&M on Sept. 8. With the Gators returning only Dunbar, Frankie Hammond Jr., Solomon Patton and Andre Debose as receivers who caught passes in 2011, there is plenty of room for someone to emerge. Still, Pease said each has to earn his playing time. They create their roles and what they can do for us, he said.

30, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior linebacker Jon Bostic (right) said the Gators defense has been playing better and faster thanks to improved communication. VOllLLEYballBALL KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterThere was no doubt that Taylor Brauneis was Louisvilles dominant setter for the last two years. The junior led the team with 1,100 assists in 2010, and continued her top performance in 2011 when she was responsible for 85 percent of the Cardinals assists. With the Gators top two setters gone for the 2012 season, Brauneis picked the perfect time to transfer to Florida. and she plays with so much game, coach Mary Wise said. We talk about the greatest players and so many of them have a high IQ of the game, and thats what Taylor has. Brauneis should have no problem picking up the slack from Floridas two departing setters. Not only was she just 125 assists shy of Kelly Murphy and Chanel Browns combined total last year, but had she been a Gator in 2011, Brauneis would have been third in service aces and fourth in digs. Wise and players like Tangerine Wiggs are excited about Brauneis addition because of her talent and ability to run a 5-1 offense, something Florida hasnt done since 2007. It is so great to have Taylor coming from a successful program and the experience she has, Wiggs said. She has run a 5-1 offense, and we have only run a 6-2 in the past couple of years, so having someone come with the experience of running a 5-1, it is so different. Having Taylor is huge. It is something that puts us a step ahead. The main difference between a 5-1 offense and a 6-2 offense is the number of setters a team has on the court. In the 5-1 theres only one setter, as opposed to two setters in a 6-2. Because Brauneis has only played in a 6-2 once in her entire volleyball career, the Gators will spend more time in the 5-1 scheme this season. Since transferring in January, Brauneis has had to learn how to adjust to the new coaches, players and tempo. However, she said the shoes of the setters whove left Florida. I was here for the spring and I had to learn a couple of new things, but I think when summer started, I was a Gator, Brauneis said. I want to win a national championship, and I think here, I can do that. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org.Brauneis brings proven talent, fresh offense to FloridaBrauneis ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterAfter the Gators spent last season learning rather than communicating, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has coaching competition in Year 2 of his system. Older players, such as senior linebacker Jon Bostic, have become their own coaches on the The communication is a lot wording was pretty long, Bostic said. For us being in the second year in the defense, were allowed to cut those words down a little bit shorter, because now we know what each other is thinking. We can just look at somebody and pretty much know, OK yeah, I see what youre seeing. It makes us a lot better as a defense, because we play a lot faster and get the calls in quicker. Gators coaches held split squad practices this fall to divide reps and separate the inexperienced players from the veterans. Now, players such as redshirt freshman safety Valdez Showers can make the same calls as starting safety Matt Elam. Showers needed the practice experience to get comfortable. Coming into a new system like that, youre so worried about being in the right call that you forget about making plays on the ball, Showers said. Coach Will Muschamp arrived at Florida wanting a ball-hawking defense that could generate turnovers. 113th of 120 teams in turnover margin. Players who were trying to learn the terminology rather than making plays are now comfortable enough to react, meaning Quinn was able to focus on creating turnovers during training camp. Youve heard the saying, You get what you emphasize, Quinn said. Ive really tried to hit it as hard as I can. Even after a good practice, turnovers are emphasized. I still went back to the takeaways, Quinn said. We had one today, thats not enough, and tried to make that emphasis. Im going to continue to do that in hopes to improve in that area. Muschamp gave his team a different, more potent, message during an October four-game losing streak, one he hoped would fuel the Gators this offseason. Dont ever forget the feeling, Muschamp said. I told them that in the locker room after the games. There is a key to every kid the key. I know one thing. Embarrassment and failure are huge motivators for competitors. Players say the failure of last season has led to improved communication. After practice, guys are staying to help each other out with the different things they need to work on, Omar Hunter said. This teams just so much together right now.

40, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 FIRE JOE MORGAN Floridas quarterback competition is silly. In fact, the ongoing saga has provided the most ridiculous story coming out of the Gators fall camp. Jacoby and Jeff are still about 50/50 down the middle, UF coach Will Muschamp said Monday. More like every day. Muschamp says nothing consequential. New offensive coordinator Brent Pease has kept his lips sealed. Even the players have failed to let any details slip. Perhaps the most insane detail regarding this asinine PR stunt is that it is simply unnecessary. Jacoby Brissett is the better quarterback. Gasp! I know. How could a late signee hand-picked by Charlie Weis be better than Jeff Driskel, the consensus No. 1 signal-caller in the Class of 2011 and the next Tim Tebow? Four words: Where do I begin? Immediately, toss out the stats (though Brissett bested Driskel in most categories last season). Given the circumstances, last years numbers dont really mean much. However, how each freshman reacted Brissett had a greater sense of calm in the huddle. Recall last seasons loss to LSU. Despite the enormity of the situation, he never lost his cool. Florida still lost, but at least Brissett was not an emotional train wreck. Then, there was Driskels second half against Alabama. Quite frankly, he looked and Crimson Tide defense would scare just about anyone, but you need more gusto to play quarterback in the Southeastern Conference. Coaches took notice. Down the stretch last season, which signal-caller did Muschamp turn to when John Brantley missed time with various injuries? Driskel took his last snap of the year against Auburn. Meanwhile, Brissett played in Floridas season games. Muschamp trustDriskel was a wild card. Fast forward to 2012, and Muschamp has suddenly forgotten which guy is battle-tested. When Driskel hurt his left shoulder at practice Aug. 12, it seemed like the act was over. even if by default. However, Muschamp was quick to quell speculation, saying on Aug. 15 that the competition is ongoing. And that brings me to the Gators lone open practice, held Saturday. Most of Driskels throws were dumps to running backs and tight ends. When he went deep, it was not pretty. Overall, he looked skittish in the pocket. Brissett, on the other hand, was in command. He stood strong in the pocket and took chances on deep throws. Granted, he was far from perfect, and its silly to put too much stock into one practice. But, comparatively speaking, Brissett looked like the better quarterback, and he should start Sept. 1. Muschamp has his motives for hiding behind the veil of a quarterback competition. Maybe he is trying to avoid a Driskel transfer, in case Brissett suffers an injury. Whatever the reason, the drama has run its course. Its time for Muschamp to name a starting quarterback, and Brissett is the man for the job. Florida needs a leader, not a competition. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org. Stop the charade: Brissett should be Floridas quarterback Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan GATORS HAVE ONLY THREE HEALTHY TIGHT ENDS. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer Tight end Colin Thompson will undergo a second surgery to treat a fractured bone in his right foot, sidelining him for about eight weeks. An initial surgery performed in the spring to try to resolve the issue did not heal properly, necessitating a second procedure, which is expected to happen today. Thompson came to UF as the No. 6 tight end in the class of 2012 and was thought to be in line for what he could bring as a blocker at 6 foot 4 and 256 pounds. With Jordan Reed missing the last week with an MCL sprain and A.C. Leonard leaving the team during the offseason, the Gators are left with only three healthy scholarship tight ends. Former defensive end Tevin Westbrook and freshman Kent Taylor have never played the position for Florida, while Clay Burton appeared in only one game last season. After being held out of contact for a few days because of a shoulder injury, Sharrif Floyd was back to regular practice on Monday. Lerentee McCray was expected to return to practice on Monday or Tuesday after dealing with a hamstring injury, while Muschamp loosely targeted Oct. 1 as the date Ronald Powell can return from a torn ACL he suffered during the spring game. Johnson shining on special teams: Although hes been shufand running back in just more than a year with UF, Chris Johnson has found a home on special teams. Chris, number one, is probably our most valuable special teams player, Muschamp said. Hes really an explosive guy on special teams and does an awful lot for us there. what Johnson can do at both running back and fullback, his contributions on UFs punt and kick coverage teams are expected to be even more critical. Special teams here take precedence over either offense or defense, and our guys understand that, Muschamp said. Demps signs with Pats: Former Gators running back and Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps signed a contract with the New England Patriots on Friday, foregoing a professional track career for a shot at the NFL. Im happy, I think thats great, Muschamp said. Jeffs a great guy, and a guy that can certainly be a very valuable thirddown back and a returner. Hes a guy that, when he touches the ball, he can take it the distance. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Thompson to miss eight weeks due to second foot surgeryThompson

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 National voter turnout increased marginally from 2010 primaryof the political aisle. Republican races in Alachua County saw a 29 percent turnout with 12,814 registered residents voting. In the Democratic race, turnout was 26.3 percent with 19,946 voters going to the polls, Election Chief Deputy Will Boyett said. These elections were bumped up from the end of August to Aug. 14 because the state Legislature wanted to make sure the Republican National Convention, which begins Monday in Tampa, wouldnt get in the way of the primary elections, among other reasons, said Supervisor of Elections Pam Car penter. Voter turnout countrywide showed a 0.5 percent increase from 2010s primary election. In the Republican race for the Alachua County Commission District 1 seat, John Martin pulled ahead of Kevin Riordan and Brandon Kutner with 5,135 votes to win the spot. Cur rent Commissioner Mike Byerly won against Roberta Lopez with 11,217 votes to clinch the Democratic county commission race. Martin and Byerly will face off for the District 1 seat in the Nov. 6 general election. For the Alachua County School Board District 4 seat, candidate Leanetta McNealy and incumbent Barbara Sharpe received 12,493 and 10,864 votes respectively. Because the school board election is nonpartisan, Sharpe or McNealy needs 50 percent or more of the votes to claim the seat. A runoff election will be held in November. Robert Hutch Hutchinson and Ken Cornell went head to head for the Democratic County Commission District 3 seat. Hutchinson won with 11,150 votes, and he will face former County Commissioner Jean Calderwood in November. Ted Yoho, a Gainesville veterinarian and Tea Party member, defeated U.S. Rep. Clifford Stearns with 5,406 votes, or 45.51 percent, in the U.S. Congressional District 3 election. Stearns, a 20-year Congress veteran, conceded to Yoho on Aug. 15. For the second time in two elections, Ed Crapo defeated Alonzo V. Perkins for the Alachua County property appraiser position. Crapo secured another four-year term. In the race for U.S. Senator, Connie Mack won the Republican vote with 661,341 votes statewide over Mike McCalister, Marielena Stuart and Dave Weldon.

New Year, New LeafTry new things in collegeWelcome home, Gators. Most of you are returning, and were glad to have you back. But about 6,500 of you are brand-new freshmen, and its whelming. No one is telling you where to be or what to do. There are no curfews, no dress codes, no detention or hall passes. For some, this will translate to many nights spent wander ing Midtown and a lot of missed morning lectures. Enjoy it. Turlington Hall isnt the only place where you can get an education. And dont let your professors scare you getting a B in your 1000-level psychology class isnt going to sink your GPA. There are more important lessons to learn here. Everyone will tell you that college is what you make of it, and thats true. in medicine, politics or activism. Or you might end up with a dual degree in botany and Russian, because those were the only classes you liked. You might even decide that UF isnt for you and thats OK, too. Either way, dont be afraid to chase your passions. Theres no magical combination of classes that will result in a guaranteed job offer upon graduation, so you might as well do some exploring along the way. UF offers more than 100 majors, and there are close to a 1,000 student organizations, most of which meet on campus. Now is the time to take yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new. If you get invited to an ultimate Frisbee tournament, a hula-hoop jam, a vegan Thanksgiving feast, underwater hockey practice or a Hare Krishna drum circle, go.

Its ridiculous how lazy and self-absorbed our generation is when it comes to voting. If a majority of students in Florida had voted back in 2010, we might not be stuck with Rick Scott right now. Thats how close that race was. (And if youre going to use one of the campus organizations for voter registration, use the Democrats. They have more students working for them than the Republicans.)

The partys methods of winning elections are pretty unethical and no one except this newspapers staff cares. And lastly, stop buying clickers. Those infernal contraptions cost way too much money, dont transfer over from class to class, and are used mostly to create an audience for bad lecturers.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorPresidential Candidate Gary Johnson deserves attentionThere is a storm brewing in America that will rock the world if it gets any worse. Americans are at the breaking point with a bad economy, corrupt banks and bought-out government ofTrillions of dollars have been sucked out of the middle class and into the bank accounts of a privileged few. Americans are threatening to revolt at the ballot box. Make no mistake about it, people are angry, and they are not going to take the twoparty system anymore. In this time, as many are calling the year of the Libertarian, people are taking a second look at a system that worked for so many years, allowing individuals to remain free to choose their own paths and live free of massive, bloated government. Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson now carries the banner for those oppressed by corruption, debt and injustice. The former governor of New Mexico never raised taxes, and he vetoed more bad legislation than all other governors combined in his eight years. Buckle your seat belts, America, for there is a new man in town who is here to topple a very corrupt system.

The story stated, A U.S. rover the size of a small car landed safely on Mars at 1:31 a.m. Eastern time Monday before heading back to Earth. Wow. A Mars return mission. I thought that was years away! The article goes on to say Curiosity is the worlds second rover that stopped working shortly after landing. Actually, 14 spacecraft, out of 40 attempts, have landed on Mars. But it is 14.

OConnell Center. IT WILL BE DISPLAYED AT UF FOR FIVE YEARS. SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterGainesville is home to a new record-breaking reptile but its not an alligator. Researchers with the Florida Museum of Natural History dissected a 17-foot-7-inch Burmese python Aug. 10, the largest of its kind ever found in the state. The 164.5-pounder was pregnant with 87 eggs and broke previous state records for pythons. This thing is monstrous; its about a foot wide, Florida Museum herpetology collection manager Kenneth Krysko said in a press release. Krysko was out of town and unavailable for an interview. The Florida Museum received the specimen from the Everglades National Park as part of a U.S. Department of the Interior project researching methods for managing Floridas invasive Burmese python problem, according to the release. After the scientists complete their investigation, the museum will display the snake for about the Everglades for more exhibition. Museum biologist Rob Robins said athough the snake is well within the average length of the species, the fact that they are growing to be so large in their non-native environment is troubling. Theyre very cryptic and be bigger ones out there, Robins said. The longest Burmese python previously found in Florida measured 16.8 feet. Another was pregnant with 85 eggs. The spike in python population led the state to pass a series of laws regarding the snakes. Its illegal to own them as pets or to transport them across state lines without a federal permit. People can hunt the pythons in certain areas in some spring months if they have a hunting license and required permits. At UF, researchers examined the snakes stomach, which contained feathers that will be idenThe pythons prey can include birds, deer, bobcats and alligators.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 SAVE THE RACKS Editors Note: A version of this story originally ran in the July 19 issue of the Alligator. THEY MUST BE REMOVED BY AUG. 15. ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterUF administrators have demanded the Alligator remove 19 of its orange newspaper racks from some of the most visible parts of campus. On July 3, the Alligator received an email from Amy Hass, UF associate vice president, stating the racks must be removed by Aug. 15. On Dec. 11, 2009, without contacting the Alligator, UFs Board of Trustees approved a rule that would prohibit distribution of all publications on campus unless approved by the UF vice president for business affairs, according to information provided by Alligator attorney Thomas Julin. Around the same time, a plan was drafted to remove privately owned news racks and to replace them with modular racks. Publishers who wished to continue distribution on campus would have to sign a licensing agreement and lease space in the universityowned black modular racks. UF did eventually notify the Alligator and other publishers of the plan in Fall 2010, after the university bought several of the modular racks and started placing them on campus. Alligator representatives objected, noting the change could hurt distribution and that the lease is an unfair tax on free speech. During a July 2011 meeting between Alligator representatives and UF administrators, administrators denied the plan would hurt readership or violate rights, but they allowed the Alligator to conduct an impact study. The Alligator collected data on the orange racks during Fall 2011, racks in Spring 2012 to measure differences in distribution. At the end of the Spring semester, the Alligator presented its data to retired professor David Denslow and asked him to determine if the change to modular racks would impact distribution. On July 3, before Denslow vised the Alligator it would continue with its plan, regardless of Were disappointed that the university has been unwilling to wait for the results of a serious study of the actions it proposes, Julin said. UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the university wants to move forward and is willing to work with the Alligator. The door is open, she said.

Earlier this week, the university informed the Alligator it would continue the rack removal planned for Aug. 15, forcing the Alligator either to move into universityowned racks or not distribute on UFs central campus. Alligator attorney Tom Julin a complaint against the univer would not be postponed. But because of the postponement, Julin said the judge does not need to rule on the injunction before Aug. 15. However, a per manent injunction and a lawsuit are still pending. He said this will give the paper and the university time to work on a mutual agreement. Before that date arrives, we would have reached a solution that is satisfactory to everyone, Julin said. The university believes the Alligator has no basis for the lawsuit. But, if the Alligator chooses to litigate, we will defend vigorously, a university statement said. UF informed Julin on Aug. 9 it would waive the required fee to be in the modular units. This decision was decided before the lawsuit, according to the statement. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.UF postpones removal of Alligator racks

Mark sent emails to Gator clubs, asked other Gators for donations and started a fundraising website to meet her goal.

Editors Note: A version of this story originally ran in the June 12 issue of the Alligator.ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WriterDiane McFarlin spent most of her adult life on the road between Sarasota and Gainesville, but for now shes here to stay. McFarlin, publisher of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and a 1976 alumna of UFs College of Jour nalism and Communications, was selected as the new dean of the college. I just could not be prouder to be named dean of a school that is already so distinguished, she said. As of Jan. 1, McFarlin will succeed John Wright, who served as interim dean since July 2006 and was named permanent dean in December 2007. As dean, McFarlin said she hopes to help manage partnerships with stakeholders in the college and explore multimedia opportunities, including the 21st Century Newsroom in Weimer Hall. We extend a hearty welcome to Diane, advertising chairman John Sutherland wrote in an email. She has the experience, expertise and leadership ability to help us continue our pursuit of excellence. Unlike other candidates for the deans position, McFarlin doesnt hold a masters degree or a Ph.D. When she was nominated, her would consider someone without advanced degrees. My whole career has been in the profession, she said. However, she said, half of the top 10 journalism schools in the U.S. have deans whose backgrounds are in their profession, not academia. She said this trend is indicative the face of journalism is changing, and colleges want leaders who have experience dealing with those problems. McFarlin also thinks UF was looking for a dean with leadership experience. As former executive editor of the Gainesville Sun, president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and managing editor and publisher of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, she said, I know what comes with a position like that, both the respect and the great reward. Mike Foley, a professor in the journalism department, thinks it was a bold decision. Shes not your traditional academic, he said. Shes the consummate professional. After graduating from UF in 1976, McFarlin started her career as a reporter for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, where she was named managing editor by the time she was 31. She left to become executive editor of the Gainesville Sun in 1987 but returned to the HeraldTribune three years later as executive editor. McFarlin has been the publisher of the Herald-Tribune since 1999. Foley, who has known McFar lin for more than 25 years, said the selection comes at the right time for her and the college, which is ready to help pass her experience to students. We continue to try to make sure that we are preparing students for the brave new world of journalism, and shes on the front lines, Foley said. Under McFarlins direction, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune launched a 24-hour cable news channel in Although McFarlins primary background is in print media, telecommunications chairman David Ostroff said hes glad she has some experience with television. Its going to be a learning curve for all of us, he said. Ostroff said all of the candidates were told the college is in dire need of more faculty. Hes looking forward to expanding in that respect, as well as working with the dean to enhance the graduate multimedia program and the TV production facilities. Were delighted to have somebody that already has a great feeling for the college, he said. McFarlin will stay with the Herald-Tribune for another three weeks. Then she plans to travel, making visits to other journalism programs and attending confer ences to prepare herself for her new job with the Gator Nation. Shes looking forward to getting to know the faculty and students and welcomes the challenge of leading one of the top journalism schools in the country. I am happiest when Im on the learning curve, she said.

Lauren Verno said giving money to SGP is giving money to the students because all SGP events are for the students. The revised budget also allocated $100,000 from SG to help keep Library West open 24 hours during weekdays in the Fall and Spring semesters. The senators passed an amended SG-funded academics budget, which lowered the Fine Arts College Council budget by $3,522.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 29 WIDE RECEIVERS By JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Floridas wide receivers were virtually nonexistent much of last season. Now, even though the unit is nearly identical to what it was a year ago, expectations are It wasnt a wide receiver that led UF in receptions last year, but departed running back Chris to replace not only his production but also improve on a disappointing 2011 performance, someone will have to step up. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said the Gators receivers have the ability to do so. There is game-changing talent, Pease said. We have speed and guys that can stretch the dent that can do that naturally. Deonte Thompson led all UF wide receivers in catches in 2011 with just 21. No other Southeastern Conference wide receiver who led his them had more than 50. Coaches are hoping Quinton Dunbar takes a step forward to try to buck that trend. Dunbar received high praise from both coaches and teammates during spring practice as a redshirt freshman in 2011, but he made just 14 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns last fall. He caught When asked early in fall camp who he thought the best receiver had been to that point, sophomore cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy was blunt with his response. Quinton Dunbar because hes fast and he can get open, Purifoy said. During Saturdays open practice, Dunbar showed off his athletic ability with two catches of more than 40 yards on plays in which Jeff Driskel threw the ball behind him, forcing him to come back and make a leaping grab. Pease said he would like to have six to eight wideouts he is at Texas A&M on Sept. 8. With the Gators returning only Dunbar, Frankie Hammond Jr., Solomon Patton and Andre Debose as receivers who caught passes in 2011, there is plenty of room for someone to emerge. Still, Pease said each has to earn his playing time. They create their roles and what they can do for us, he said.

30, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior linebacker Jon Bostic (right) said the Gators defense has been playing better and faster thanks to improved communication. VOLLEYBALL KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterThere was no doubt that Taylor Brauneis was Louisvilles dominant setter for the last two years. The junior led the team with 1,100 assists in 2010, and continued her top performance in 2011 when she was responsible for 85 percent of the Cardinals assists. With the Gators top two setters gone for the 2012 season, Brauneis picked the perfect time to transfer to Florida. and she plays with so much game, coach Mary Wise said. We talk about the greatest players and so many of them have a high IQ of the game, and thats what Taylor has. Brauneis should have no problem picking up the slack from Floridas two departing setters. Not only was she just 125 assists shy of Kelly Murphy and Chanel Browns combined total last year, but had she been a Gator in 2011, Brauneis would have been third in service aces and fourth in digs. Wise and players like Tangerine Wiggs are excited about Brauneis addition because of her talent and ability to run a 5-1 offense, something Florida hasnt done since 2007. It is so great to have Taylor coming from a successful program and the experience she has, Wiggs said. She has run a 5-1 offense, and we have only run a 6-2 in the past couple of years, so having someone come with the experience of running a 5-1, it is so different. Having Taylor is huge. It is something that puts us a step ahead. The main difference between a 5-1 offense and a 6-2 offense is the number of setters a team has on the court. In the 5-1 theres only one setter, as opposed to two setters in a 6-2. Because Brauneis has only played in a 6-2 once in her entire volleyball career, the Gators will spend more time in the 5-1 scheme this season. Since transferring in January, Brauneis has had to learn how to adjust to the new coaches, players and tempo. However, she said the shoes of the setters whove left Florida. I was here for the spring and I had to learn a couple of new things, but I think when summer started, I was a Gator, Brauneis said. I want to win a national championship, and I think here, I can do that. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org.Brauneis brings proven talent, fresh offense to FloridaBrauneis ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff WriterAfter the Gators spent last season learning rather than communicating, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has coaching competition in Year 2 of his system. Older players, such as senior linebacker Jon Bostic, have become their own coaches on the The communication is a lot wording was pretty long, Bostic said. For us being in the second year in the defense, were allowed to cut those words down a little bit shorter, because now we know what each other is thinking. We can just look at somebody and pretty much know, OK yeah, I see what youre seeing. It makes us a lot better as a defense, because we play a lot faster and get the calls in quicker. Gators coaches held split squad practices this fall to divide reps and separate the inexperienced players from the veterans. Now, players such as redshirt freshman safety Valdez Showers can make the same calls as starting safety Matt Elam. Showers needed the practice experience to get comfortable. Coming into a new system like that, youre so worried about being in the right call that you forget about making plays on the ball, Showers said. Coach Will Muschamp arrived at Florida wanting a ball-hawking defense that could generate turnovers. 113th of 120 teams in turnover margin. Players who were trying to learn the terminology rather than making plays are now comfortable enough to react, meaning Quinn was able to focus on creating turnovers during training camp. Youve heard the saying, You get what you emphasize, Quinn said. Ive really tried to hit it as hard as I can. Even after a good practice, turnovers are emphasized. I still went back to the takeaways, Quinn said. We had one today, thats not enough, and tried to make that emphasis. Im going to continue to do that in hopes to improve in that area. Muschamp gave his team a different, more potent, message during an October four-game losing streak, one he hoped would fuel the Gators this offseason. Dont ever forget the feeling, Muschamp said. I told them that in the locker room after the games. There is a key to every kid the key. I know one thing. Embarrassment and failure are huge motivators for competitors. Players say the failure of last season has led to improved communication. After practice, guys are staying to help each other out with the different things they need to work on, Omar Hunter said. This teams just so much together right now. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org.Gators hoping second season under Quinn yields more turnovers It makes us a lot better as a defense, because we play a lot faster and get the calls in quicker.Jon BosticUF senior linebacker

40, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2012 FIRE JOE MORGAN Floridas quarterback competition is silly. In fact, the ongoing saga has provided the most ridiculous story coming out of the Gators fall camp. Jacoby and Jeff are still about 50/50 down the middle, UF coach Will Muschamp said Monday. More like every day. Muschamp says nothing consequential. New offensive coordinator Brent Pease has kept his lips sealed. Even the players have failed to let any details slip. Perhaps the most insane detail regarding this asinine PR stunt is that it is simply unnecessary. Jacoby Brissett is the better quarterback. Gasp! I know. How could a late signee hand-picked by Charlie Weis be better than Jeff Driskel, the consensus No. 1 signal-caller in the Class of 2011 and the next Tim Tebow? Four words: Where do I begin? Immediately, toss out the stats (though Brissett bested Driskel in most categories last season). Given the circumstances, last years numbers dont really mean much. However, how each freshman reacted Brissett had a greater sense of calm in the huddle. Recall last seasons loss to LSU. Despite the enormity of the situation, he never lost his cool. Florida still lost, but at least Brissett was not an emotional train wreck. Then, there was Driskels second half against Alabama. Quite frankly, he looked and Crimson Tide defense would scare just about anyone, but you need more gusto to play quarterback in the Southeastern Conference. Coaches took notice. Down the stretch last season, which signal-caller did Muschamp turn to when John Brantley missed time with various injuries? Driskel took his last snap of the year against Auburn. Meanwhile, Brissett played in Floridas season games. Muschamp trustDriskel was a wild card. Fast forward to 2012, and Muschamp has suddenly forgotten which guy is battle-tested. When Driskel hurt his left shoulder at practice Aug. 12, it seemed like the act was over. even if by default. However, Muschamp was quick to quell speculation, saying on Aug. 15 that the competition is ongoing. And that brings me to the Gators lone open practice, held Saturday. Most of Driskels throws were dumps to running backs and tight ends. When he went deep, it was not pretty. Overall, he looked skittish in the pocket. Brissett, on the other hand, was in command. He stood strong in the pocket and took chances on deep throws. Granted, he was far from perfect, and its silly to put too much stock into one practice. But, comparatively speaking, Brissett looked like the better quarterback, and he should start Sept. 1. Muschamp has his motives for hiding behind the veil of a quarterback competition. Maybe he is trying to avoid a Driskel transfer, in case Brissett suffers an injury. Whatever the reason, the drama has run its course. Its time for Muschamp to name a starting quarterback, and Brissett is the man for the job. Florida needs a leader, not a competition. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org. Stop the charade: Brissett should be Floridas quarterback Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan GATORS HAVE ONLY THREE HEALTHY TIGHT ENDS. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer Tight end Colin Thompson will undergo a second surgery to treat a fractured bone in his right foot, sidelining him for about eight weeks. An initial surgery performed in the spring to try to resolve the issue did not heal properly, necessitating a second procedure, which is expected to happen today. Thompson came to UF as the No. 6 tight end in the class of 2012 and was thought to be in line for what he could bring as a blocker at 6 foot 4 and 256 pounds. With Jordan Reed missing the last week with an MCL sprain and A.C. Leonard leaving the team during the offseason, the Gators are left with only three healthy scholarship tight ends. Former defensive end Tevin Westbrook and freshman Kent Taylor have never played the position for Florida, while Clay Burton appeared in only one game last season. After being held out of contact for a few days because of a shoulder injury, Sharrif Floyd was back to regular practice on Monday. Lerentee McCray was expected to return to practice on Monday or Tuesday after dealing with a hamstring injury, while Muschamp loosely targeted Oct. 1 as the date Ronald Powell can return from a torn ACL he suffered during the spring game. Johnson shining on special teams: Although hes been shufand running back in just more than a year with UF, Chris Johnson has found a home on special teams. Chris, number one, is probably our most valuable special teams player, Muschamp said. Hes really an explosive guy on special teams and does an awful lot for us there. what Johnson can do at both running back and fullback, his contributions on UFs punt and kick coverage teams are expected to be even more critical. Special teams here take precedence over either offense or defense, and our guys understand that, Muschamp said. Demps signs with Pats: Former Gators running back and Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps signed a contract with the New England Patriots on Friday, foregoing a professional track career for a shot at the NFL. Im happy, I think thats great, Muschamp said. Jeffs a great guy, and a guy that can certainly be a very valuable thirddown back and a returner.
