THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterWhen it comes to books, everyone is looking for a bargain. Students in line wound through the aisles of the UF Bookstore on Wednesday, their arms heavy with textbooks as they took advantage of discounted prices. For some, the reward was worth the wait all new and used textbooks were discounted by 7 percent. This beginning-of-semester scene is not uncommon. Book prices can differ among stores, which means many students shop around, hunting for deals and visiting several places before making a purchase. On Wednesday, 29-year-old business management junior Djino Agenor was one of them. Im seeing which ones are cheaper, better, Agenor said while browsing for marketing books. Psychology sophomore Stacy Robinson, 20, checked the UF Bookogy textbook she needed. When she found none in stock, she headed to the Florida Bookstore. But microbiology junior Jon Foster said he didnt even try the UF Bookstore for his organic chemistry lab book. The 20-year-old thought prices would be higher there. Still, others opted for convenience. Applied physiology and kinesiology junior Barnes Lerebours, 20, said he hadnt heard about the sale. He he should start buying books. My teachers were on me, Lerebours said.

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 HE ALLEGEDLY THREATENED HIS GIRLFRIEND WITH A KNIFE. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterGainesville Police arrested a man ear ly Wednesday morning after he chased his girlfriend out of her second-story window and held onto her car roof as she drove away. At about 1:30 a.m., Towshanda Hills boyfriend, Allen Lenard Nelson, arrived at her house, 2542 SW 31st Place, wanting to borrow her car. According to a GPD arrest report, Hill, 28, and Nelson, 32, started arguing about their relationship. The couple fought for about an hour, mainly about ignorant stuff, Hill said Wednesday afternoon. Hill went to the bathroom upstairs. When she came out, she said, she saw Nelson holding a knife behind his back at the bottom of the stairs. According to the report, Nelson pretended he was going to throw the knife, kicked down the door, she jumped from her window and ran to her car. She locked her car doors as Nelson followed her outside. He climbed onto the car roof and started yelling at her. Hill said she backed out of the parking lot and drove east on Southwest 31st Place as Nelson clung to the roof, screaming for help. As she turned onto Southwest 23rd Terrace, Nelson fell off the car roof. Hill called police from a friends house. A witness said she and her husband heard screaming and called police after seeing a man, presumably Nelson, hanging onto a car roof as it sped down the road. The woman, who did not want her name published, said she and her husband saw the man again as he ran down the street across from their house. Police later arrived at Hills house and thought Nelson barricaded himself inside, said GPD spokeswoman Cpl. Angelina Valuri. vestigation Division, SWAT team and Negotiation Response Team responded to the call. who lives at 803 SE 12th Ave., where he was later arrested. Nelson was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and booked into Alachua County Jail at 10:01 a.m. As of Wednesday night, Nelson remained in jail. A bond had not been set.

Samei graduated from high school with a 4.5 GPA and said he for bids himself from letting his UF GPA slip below a 3.8.

He was wearing the same tank top he slept in. His 11:45 a.m. class hadnt seemed worth walking to when it looked like it might rain. I actually did the math, Solomon said while cracking open a drink. This is more alcohol per dollar than an 18-pack of regular cans. He paused the explanation to chase his morning vitamin regimen with more beer, which he calls ciency. Also, he added, its easier to chug. Solomons roommate appeared not long after Salty Dog Saloon before Solomons 4 p.m. class. The day continued, and Solomon mused about Midtown. Im looking forward to football season, he said. But I couldnt get tickets because Im only taking seven credits. When it was time for class, Solomon found a seat in the back of his lecture in the Florida Gym. There, he used the distance from the professor to his advantage. Solomon played Bubble Shooter on his iPhone, checked his Facebook page and looked up periodically to watch the video the professor was showing. three days of class a week.

Were aware there are issues that need to be addressed, and we are addressing those, Orlando said. UF came in with several sportsrelated rankings, including No. 2 in Jock Schools, No. 3 in Students Pack the Stadiums and No. 16 in Everyone Plays Intramural Sports. Marty Dempsey, a coordinator for competitive sports at RecSports, said ranking. However, Dempsey said the ranking isnt necessarily a good representation of UFs intramural numbers. Between 12,000 and 15,000 students play intramural sports at UF each school Robert Franek, author of the book, said it is not uncommon for larger campuses like UF to generate thousands of survey responses. collected throughout the past three years. Generally, the survey results remain consistent, Franek said. But For example, UFs career resource services were ranked No. 6 this year. and in 2011 they were ranked No. 4, according to Alligator archives. Although the university may not agree with these rankings, Franek maintained they are accurate. They are based on that expert opinion, he said. And that expert opinion being current college students.

Normally, lemonade is made with only three humble ingredients: sugar, water and freshly squeezed lemon juice (dont even think about using Country Time). In this version, the water is infused with fresh lavender sprigs, and blueberry puree is added for a fruity kick. Although its the end of August, theres still time to enjoy a summer cocktail. So try adding a shot of gin or vodka to your glass. Theres nothing like an ice-cold glass of lemonade on a hot day!Blueberry-Lavender Lemonade (makes 1 pitcher)Ingredients: 2 cups sugar 7 cups water, divided 1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed (about 5 to 6 lemons) 1 pint blueberries 15 sprigs fresh lavender (1 small plant) and a few extra for garnish Directions: 1. In a saucepan, boil 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water. Stir until the sugar dissolves. 2. Remove the mixture from the heat, add fresh lavender sprigs, and cover it. Let it seep for 30 minutes, then remove the sprigs from the saucepan and discard them. 3. In a bowl, crush the blueberries until they become a puree. You can also puree them in a blender or a food processor. 4. You can do this next step two ways: (1) Place the blueberry positioned over a pitcher. Pour lavender-infused water through the sieve on top of the blueberry puree and into the pitcher. (2) Place the lavender-infused water and blueberry puree in a French press. Press down to create a very clear blueberry-lavender mixture. 5. Pour the lemon juice into a pitcher, followed by 5 1/2 cups of water. Tip: taste the lemonade between adding cups of water some like it tart! You can also add more sugar or lemon juice at this step. 6. Stir well, and garnish with blueberries, or a lemon slice on the edge of the glass. Enjoy!Courtesy to the Alligator / Zac WolfAfter a long, hot day on campus, try this ice-cold blueberry-lavender lemonade recipe.

Chomp and chew: Cool off with refreshing lemonade recipe recipes KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterNow that the Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary has been updated, words like brain cramp, man cave and sexting are fair game for academic papers. Here are some highlights from the list, punctuated by two students using the words in a hypothetical conversation: Aha moment n (1939): a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension I had this aha moment in class today.

F-bomb n (1988): the word f--k used metaphorically as a euphemism Howd it go? I started to ask for her name, but the energy drink and hangover combo turned on me. I dropped an f-bomb and ran to the bathroom. "Ouch." Flexitarian n (1998): one whose normally meatless diet occasionally includes meat or versatile. Game changer n (1993): a newly introduced element or factor that changes an existing situacant way Ive got a total game changer: CiCis. It has something for everyone.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 A NEW SYSTEM FOR DROP/ADD COULD DECREASE ISIS FUSTRATION. IAN ROWEAvenue WriterFor the past several hours, Ive been star ing at the drop/add page on my computer screen the way a drunk person watches the rotation of a gas station hot dog: with a mixgoes by before I reclick the pages refresh cursing the heavens and shouting, Buddha, Jesus, Athena! WHY!?, knowing full well that somewhere in Gainesville, at that exact moment, some jerk is laughing because he has the class I want, and he knows it. There are a number of reasons why Im tion of the registration dates is unfair to all students. The second: Theres too many students and not enough classes. The third: I forgot when my registration date was, went backpacking across the United States and didnt register until I got back to Gainesville last week. And while theres a higher likelihood its the third reason, lets not forget that this is an election year, and so I elect to forgo any responsibility for my actions. Instead, I opt to propose ideas beyond any logical persons comprehension. Like this one: We should retract the drop/add scavenger hunt approach, and instead institute drop/add elimination. To keep up with the The Hunger Games and NBCs new show Revolution), instead of students sitting in chairs waiting for their classes to appear, we should assemble the students who have signed up for said classes and set them loose against each other in a gladiator-style death match. With such a spectacle unfolding on campus, I propose we charge admission to the at the same price as a football game. With increased revenue thanks to our new registo the students unskilled in the art of war, what were left with is a win-win situation, which has a more appropriate economics term that I dont know, because Im an English major, not a business major. Should the idea of blood sport prove too much for the university, still in the spirit of quenching public thirst for elimination, I propose a series of dance-offs. (See FOXs So You Think You Can Dance, or the ironically titled Americas Got Talent.) What we have is the opportunity to impart a democratic forum one in which the students vote for who they feel earned his or her seat in a given class, not just the person tion? Why, a panel of experts, of course. To which youre thinking, Obviously, UFs dance department! To which I say, Dont be so silly. When I say experts, I mean irrelevant celebrities. Nick Canon is doing Tar get commercials. Nick Lachey is doing reality television. We all know Nick Jonas and Nicolas Cage arent doing anything, as well as that one Nick from the Backstreet Boys and that other Nick from that other thing. With this many talentless, able bodies, we have an ocean of disposable Nicks to choose from. And if UF is still hesitant about having after the initial judging, we can have our its not like we would ever run out of them! Do not do as I did and wait until the last minute to register for classes at least to the extent that youre driven mad by the perpetual refreshing of a page so you can take that one class you should have taken when you were a freshman. Dont believe me? Please refer to the previous paragraphs and learn from my mistakes.Drop/add week madness: a charming letter of suggestion

12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 NEW SINGLE, WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER, IS NO. 1 ON BILLBOARDS HOT 100. ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterIts no secret that pop-country superstar Taylor Swift is famous for her themed song writing concerning breakups and general lovesickness. For her, its as if the theme is superinto all types of beats and styles alongside the standard painful lyrical prose. With the release of her latest single, the moody yet wordy We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, which knocked Lady Gagas Born This Way out of the spot for largest digital song debut by a female artist with 623,000 downloads, Swift is again asserting her position as this decades resident heartache heroine. Even though her fourth studio album Red wont be released until Oct. 22, happy yet regretful, ultimately girl-powered breakup anthems: 1. Back To December (from 2010s Speak Now) Who its about: Hunky Twilight werewolf Taylor Lautner is (well, reportedly) the inspiration for Swifts apology. Whats the style: A slow, twangy ballad with mournful vocal style, Swift laments her relationship woes in slow, pained lines. How its visualized: Full of cold weather and snow-crunching metaphors of the heart, the music video features Swift wandering broodily throughout her darkened abode. 2. Picture To Burn (from 2008s Taylor Swift) Who its about: Lashing out at a sleazy exboyfriend and all of his less-than-desirable traits, T. Swizzle sings the ultimate send-off. Whats the style: This rollicking track features Swifts earlier, more country-twanged chops. How its visualized: Complete with black leather and pyrotechnics, this breaking-andentering how-to is straight out of the bitter exgirlfriends guide to dream revenge tactics. 3. White Horse (from 2009s Fearless) Who its about: With the picturesque Prince Charming character as her girlhood fantasy, Swift laments her loss of what she thought was her very own version. Whats the style: Slow and drawling with mood of this single. How its visualized: Rainy windowpanes MTV reality show Laguna Beach resident heartbreaker Stephen Colletti) invade Swifts have been. 4. The Story of Us (from 2010s Speak Now) Who its about: Singer/ songwriter (and well-publicized womanizer) John Mayer serves as the muse for both this track and the aptly titled Dear John. Whats the style: Upbeat and peppy, the pessimistic theme is easily disguised as the ultimate girly-girl car jam. How its visualized: Set in a library, Swift and her hipster glasses regale a past boyfriend with more charisma and zeal than many of her other videos. 5. Shouldve Said No (from 2008s Taylor Swift) Who its about: A cheating boyfriend is blasted in this adolescent ode to teenage animosity. Whats the style: Similar to Picture To Swifts lyrics more angry and vengeful than the rest. How its visualized: In a live performance from the 2008 Academy of Country Music Awards, Swift powers through the song, at one point stamping out the lyrics under a waterfall. Even though many music listeners get annoyed with the consistent theme of Swifts songs, its undeniable that girlfriend knows her stuff. Sure, she may repeatedly get her self into situations that call for heartbreak, but who are we to judge? Shes a successful singer/songwriter with legions of fans all over the world who absolutely idolize her for becoming a voice to guide them through their own Swift wants to continue writing the same old no. 1 on the Billboard charts break-up anthem, then let her! Because we are never, ever, ever going to be able to stop listening anyway like, ever.The perpetual breakup of Taylor Swift: 5 heartache anthems This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/askMaegan Dennis / Alligator Staff Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, My mom keeps hounding me to go to the vagina doctor. I think my vagina is none of her business, and I will go if I feel like it. How do I get her off my back? Dear Mediocre Advice, I have this guy friend, and we lie together and touch each other some times, but never have sex. I want to sleep with him, though. Im afraid he just wants to be friends, and he is only following my lead regarding the tan talizing touch sessions. What do you think? Dear Friend, What?! Go to the vagina doctor! Yea, OK, wah wah wah, my mom cares about my health and the most awesome part of my body. She probably thinks youre boning and wants to get you on birth control (if youre not already on it) or, ya know, legitimately cares about your body. Also, the lack of details in this question leads me to believe you still live under her roof, so you should really go. Dear Friend, Even if this baby looks like it suffered from severe burns, you cant tell her. If you cant get yourself to lie, avoid the question. Ask your sister how happy she is with the new baby and how she is going to dress the baby for Halloween. Dont ruin this for her, even if it looks like a fetus version of Voldemort. Maybe in a decade or two, when the baby grows out of his or her ugly-duckling stage, you can tell her the truth and joke about it. Dear Mediocre Advice, My sister had a baby and, to be honest, its not that cute. Everyone else is telling her how cute her baby is, and I dont know what to say. What do I do? Dear Friend, If you guys touch each other and he hasnt brought up having sex yet, hes probably a virgin or doesnt have a penis. I dont think a guy would go this far to follow your lead and secretly think yea shes gross and Im getting no pleasure out of touching her. He wants to bone. If you feel comfortable enough to take those vague touches to the next naked level, make a move. I am 99.99 percent sure he wont swat away your hand.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Demps Hits Major Pay DayAccording to NFL.com, Jeff Demps contract with the New England Patriots guarantees him $211,000, the second most of all undrafted free agents in 2012. Tight end Jordan Reed is back in practice after suffering an scrimmage on Aug. 11. See story, page 19. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer When Brent Pease kicks his offense into high gear, confusing opposing defenses with various formations, motions and shifts, Trey Burton and Omarius Hines are expected to present some of the biggest problems. The question defenses will have to answer isnt simply, Where will they line up? Its, What are they? Thats where you have some issues from a defensive standpoint: How do you count this guy? coach Will Muschamp said of Burton and Hines. Is he a back? Is he a receiver? Is he a fullback? Is he a tight end? Hes going to line up in all the placto look at. The possibilities are exciting for Pease, who admits that in six years at Boise State, we didnt have players like that. Deciphering Peases offense was always going to be a chore for decan be to identify how various shifts change the formation. Knowing that the Gators have players in Burton and Hines who can be effective at multiple spots only adds to the challenge. They do create mismatches, Pease said. We will get them the ball, now they have to make plays. That was much easier said than done last season. Burton caught 19 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown and carried the ball 37 times for 155 yards and three scores. Hines notched seven catches for 106 yards and had one carry for 12 yards, failStill, the optimism surrounding the 6-foot-3, 228-pound Burton and 6-foot-2, 217-pound Hines is understandable. Along with 6-foot-3, 243-pound tight end Jordan Reed, Burton and who are simultaneously too quick for linebackers to contain and too big for corners and safeties to cover. Youve got a guy whose got speed and ability to run vertical and snap routes, youre matched up on linebackers, Pease said. Somebody like Jordan, whos got really wide receiver ability but in a body like his, hes a nightmare for defensive coordinators. The Gators are hoping Hines can join that cast of nightmares not just because of his versatility, but because of his big-play ability. Hines averaged 14.8 yards per touch in his limited action last year, including a long of 39, and ripped off a 61-yard touchdown run in Fridays scrimmage. When the ball is in his hands, he can go the distance, Pease said. He can create the huge, explosive plays. He can go 75-80 yards, because hes got the other gear. Hes got the ability to catch. Hes got the ability to run. Hes got strength. Hes an incredible talent, so you just have to use him the right way. So far, it appears the Gators think every way is the right way to use Hines. While his 61-yard touchdown came as a running back, Hines said hes also lined up at wide receiver, tight end and fullback. Although learning to play every Hines has been putting in extra time with coaches to make sure hes up to speed at every position. whelming, Hines said. Its been a long journey, man. From playing David Carr / Alligator Staff Omarius Hines carries the ball in a drill during Saturdays open Hines, Burton giving Florida versatility Pease excited by options The Gators have Georgia on their mind. After an offseason in which the players worked in the trenches of practice without making headlines off And now the Southeastern Conference Championship game in Atlanta supposedly awaits. Guys have bought into what we are trying to do, Muschamp said. Obviously, their way didnt work. They understand where we are heading with this program. The message this training camp has been SEC title game or bust, but reaching the Georgia Dome will be tough. No. 23 Florida plays four teams ranked in the top 10 in the preseason poll. fewer than 10 victories. Florida doesnt have to be great. Try planned. He arrived at Florida with a depleted roster and the sour stench left behind by Urban Meyer. Muschamp kicked Janoris Jenkins, his best cornerback, off the team in April due to a second marijuana-related arrest in the span of three months. Four other Gators were arrested during the 2011 offseason. schemes. Those Gators were doomed from the start. UF couldnt catch a break once football started. John Brantley, the senior quarterback, and backups Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett were sacked nearly twice as often as they threw It took until the bowl game against Ohio State before the players bought into the new coaching staff. Im not surprised, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd said. Im not saying I expected it this way. Some people learn in different ways and some people group together in different ways, and it took us a year. So lets give these Gators a blank slate. The words from players and coaches during the preseason suggest these Gators have changed. UF is 15-11 the past two seasons, which ranked eighth in the SEC. Theyre tired of mediocrity. Florida took the right steps this offseason. Muschamp had only two arrests and players ran their own practices. Strength coach Jeff Dillman instituted a new training program, which players and coaches have raved about. The mindset of this team has improved. Football means a lot more to some of the guys, redshirt senior Sam Robey said. A lot of entitlements are gone now.

receiver to going to tight end, and now, doing pretty much doing everything. I love it. Im enjoying it. Hines agreed with a reporters assertion that he could be Trey Burton 2.0, saying he was stronger and faster than his versatile counterpart. Pease has been careful not to overload Hines mentally, and if UFs jack of all trades can pick up the offense as well as Pease says he has, it could be a long year for opposing defenses. Hes done a good job, Pease said. He is a very things, and he wants more. Hes always, Hey, can I do this play? Can I do that play? Hes a threat. Hes a weapon. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. 18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012 That was one of our big problems last year. Last season was not what this Muschamp-led program is about. You get to the point where hes put his stamp on the program, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Youve got a feel of the kids and youve built up your standards and how to interact. They know whats right. They know whats wrong. They know what is going to arent working. These Gators are on the mend and will show a better product While reaching Atlanta may be the goal, just getting rid of 2011 would be an accomplishment by itself.

TIGHT END SUFFERED A KNEE INJURY ON AUG. 11. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer Two days after coach Will Muschamp announced Colin Thompson would miss about eight weeks due to surgery on his right foot, the Gators have good news at tight end: Jordan Reed is healthy. dinator Brent Pease said. Hes Reed sprained his MCL during Floridas scrimmage on Aug. 11. Muschamp initially predicted Reed would miss three to four days, but the junior ended up missing more than a week. Jordan Reed went through the walk-through this morning said Monday. Hopefully, (we will) get him back maybe in nonDespite missing two games last season, Reed was the Gators second-leading receiver with 28 catches for 307 yards and two touchdowns. He is expected to be active for Floridas opener against Bowling Green on Sept. 1. Based on Peases confusion when asked how Reeds health had progressed Wednesday, the New London, Conn., natives well-being shouldnt have even been in question. You guys might be telling me said. Who? Whos that? MCL? Troubles A-Foot: When Muschamp addressed the media on Aug. 15 regarding Jeff Driskels scapula contusion, there was a minor footnote. At the time, it went unnoticed. Mike McNeely, a walk-on whos going to be a big part of our special teams, fractured his foot and hell be out champ said last week. McNeely, a 5-foot-8 walk-on, had surgery on his foot on Monday. However, the sophomore wide receivers name popped up again on Wednesday when offensive coordinator Brent Pease was assessing Floridas wide receivers. It really hurt when Mike McNeely (was injured) because he said. That kid was going to help McNeely dressed for every game last season except for Floridas loss to Alabama on Oct. 1. He appeared in seven contests during the 2011 campaign, including the While McNeelys performance in fall camp remains a mystery to those outside the team, Peases disappointment in losing a walkon to injury does not bode well for the Gators wide receivers group. Andre Debose led returning wideouts with 16 catches last season. As the season opener nears, will be ready to take a step forward in 2012. I think the guys are underLike Ive told them, If you want more, you better show consistency and create it. I think guys are kind of grasping onto that. Im going to tell you this: Were not just sticking anybody out there that looks pretty and can run. They better go out there and No Scrimmage: Florida canceled its Tuesday scrimmage due to rain. With preparation for Bowling Green set to begin this weekend, it will not be rescheduled. It gets too close to the game time and you risk injuries and With the scrimmage out of the picture, Pease stressed the need for additional practice time. Weve still got to get more reps that we lost out on [Tuesday] that well probably get on practice situations here on Thursday and Friday before we really start putContact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.
