MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 Benjamin S. Brasch/ Alligator StaffGrapes of WrathA Gainesville resident stomps grapes Saturday at Grape Stompin, a wine-tasting and grapestomping event. Paulk Vineyards, in Wray, Ga., donated one ton of muscadine grapes, said Gabrielle Fellenz, executive assistant to the director of Gainesvilles Pledge 5 Foundation. Aug. 31, 1966: The State Cabinet selects Gators Embark On A Disneyland Lark as UFs 1966 Homecoming slogan. The slogan was submitted by Mrs. J. A. Booher Jr. and was selected from more than 1,200 other entries. More than 23 percent of the slogans submitted had a Disney theme. Others involved state politics, the space race, education and Batman. Aug. 29, 1985: Apartheid protesters gather outside Tigert Hall to plan a rally advocating UFs divestment of holdings in corporations that do business in South Africa. The Florida Foundation had already responded to previous protests by unanimously rejecting the protesters demands and instead passing a resolution to maintain investments in companies adher ing to the Sullivan Principles, which state African-Americans will hold managerial positions and that workplaces must be desegregated. Aug. 26, 1987: The UF Mens Glee Club has its 1987-88 budget eliminated by UFs Student Government during budget hearings because no club representatives were present. Club members claimed that they showed up DYLAN SAUNDERS KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterDont get lost at recruitment next week two Interfraternity Council fraternities at UF relocated before the start of the school year. Tau Kappa Epsilon moved out of Collier Hall on University Avenue, said Logan Manderscheid, the 20-year-old vice president of TKE. The chapter did not move into a different house. Instead, many of its members have spread out in houses behind Midtown. Essentially it was our chapters decision not to re-sign because it was such an enor mous price for no quality at all, Manderscheid said, adding that not having to pay rent will increase the social budget. Theta Chi, which is demolishing its house on Fraternity Row and building a new one on the same property, will move into Collier Hall for the year, said Rob Wheeler, 20-year-old vice president of Theta Chi. The new house should be ready by July 2013. Zeta Beta Tau could be moving soon, too, said Sean Quinn, the 19-year-old public relations director of UFs Interfraternity Council. Ideally, IFC doesnt want to see this much movement because it usually means that theres an issue with discipline, Quinn said. Sigma Pi and Phi Sigma Kappa are also houseless fraternities, Quinn said. These chapters will be conducting next weeks rush on Flavet Field, according to the IFC website. Quinn, Manderscheid and Wheeler agreed that being without a house or living in an offcampus house does affect recruitment. But I think its going to do a lot of good for the fraternity, Manderscheid said.Two UF fraternities relocate, more houses could move soon

The locations and identities of two of the robbers are unknownbe there so he could come and have his friends rob us. About 15 minutes later, Lewis and two unknown men, wearing black bandanas around their faces, barged into the apartment. The witness said Lewis ordered the group to hand over their cellphones. One of the unknown men held a gun to Bleasdales head, ordering him from room to room and asking him where his belongings were as the other unknown man searched the kitchen. Lewis pulled out his gun and or dered the two women to get on the ground. One of the witnesses said she fought back, kicking Lewis in the groin. When the women, who are both Santa Fe College students, tried to escape, the men threw them across the room. apartment with two cellphones, two wallets and about $600 in cash. The women shouted at a neighbor to call the police from the balcony as Bleasdale and Dayton ran after When police arrived, one of the women explained that Robinson had called the students moments before the robbery. Police found Robinson and Hunt at Canopy Apartments, 4400 SW 20th Ave., where they recovered $190, 2 grams of marijuana and Daytons HTC G2 cellphone. Deputies arrested Hunt and Robinson and questioned them early Friday morning. Robinson told the following story, according to a ASO arrest report: Lewis picked up Hunt and Robinson Thursday night, looking for a drug dealer. He then picked up the unknown men and drove them to Once inside the complex, Lewis parked his white Chevrolet Monte Carlo. He and the two unknown men then went up to Bleasdale and Daytons apartment. A few minutes later, the men returned with a large amount of money, marijuana and cellphones. Police interviewed Lewis on Saturday. He said he picked up Robinson and Hunt and took them to the house of Donte Bradley. Based on the evidence, police ar rested Lewis at 10:24 p.m. Saturday and booked him into jail that night. At press time, there was no infor mation on the whereabouts of the unknown men. Robinson, Hunt and Lewis remained in Alachua County Jail Sunday. Bonds for Robinson and Hunt are set at $195,000. Lewis bond is set at $630,000. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org. ROBBER Y, from page 1C AMPUS KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterUFs co-ed competitive a cappella group is upping the tempo this year. No Southern Accent plans to recruit new vocalists, compete at festivals and record its second album. Half of the groups 16 singers graduated in the spring, so it plans to recruit eight new members this semester. Auditions are from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday in Room 357 of the Reitz Union. No Southern Accent especially needs a beatboxer, said musical director Alex Greene, 21. Without instruments, you have to transpose everything to voice, Greene, a materials science and engineering junior, said. You have to make it sound real. The group, which was founded in 2001, performs songs without instruments. You take all the layers of a song and break it into different vocal parts, Greene said. Along with adding new members, the group will now remembers will work on is I Wont Give Up by Jason Mraz, and they eventually plan to release a second CD. While the group is based at UF, the members plan to take their talents outside Gainesville. No Southern Accent takes trips throughout the year, said President C.J. Wittus, a 20-year-old criminology junior. The group will perform for the Brevard Gator Clubs Gator Nation Vacation cruise at the end of September, Wittus said. Its also auditioning to compete against other southeastern colleges at SoJam, an a cappella festival in November in North Carolina. No Southern Accent can be seen on campus, too. The singers will perform at Orange and Brew throughout the semester I think the potential we have with all of those new singers will really give us a chance to achieve a level of performance that weve never really had before, Greene said.No Southern Accent hopes to start year on right note IT REQUIRES 500 SIGNATURES TO GET ON THE OCTOBER BALLOT. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe UF Supreme Court unanimously approved a nonbinding referendum Friday asking students if the Reitz Union should be renamed. Referendums gauge student opinion. They dont have direct impact on administration or Student Government policy. The Supreme Court approved the refer endum for SG elections on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3, pending that referendum author, Students Party President Ford Dwyer, gets signatures from 1 percent of the Student Body about 500 people. Dwyers referendum asks students about renaming the union after Virgil Hawkins, an African-American who was denied entrance to UF in 1949 because of his race. Along with the student unions new face, I think the student union deserves a new name, Dwyer said. Besides noting Hawkins achievements, the referendum mentions J. Wayne Reitzs delay in racially integrating UF. He also collaborated in the purging of gay students and professors during his time as university president, according to the referendum. If a majority of students answer yes to the question in October, Dwyer said he will bring the name change before UFs Board of Trustees. If not, he will drop the issue.

Simons Nightclub hosted its grand opening at 8 S. Main St. on Saturday night, following its soft opening on Thursday and Friday. We focused on three distinct things: The service, the music and the ambiance, said Ryan Prodesky, director of marketing for 101 Management, which provides management and service solutions for leisure and hospitality brands. The club reached its 440-person capacity by midnight, said Jordan Best, a 22-year-old security guard and UF alumnus. Club goers entered a 6,500-square-foot, entirely white room. Guests shouted cocktail or ders as others nudged to get to the front of the bar. Music blared out of speakers, pulsating with the dancing bodies. All VIP tables sold out at Simons on Satur day and were dotted with celebrities, including Lochte. The UF alumnus spent the majority of the night in the sectioned-off VIP lounge.

JULIA GLUM ERIN JESTERAlligator Staff WritersAttendees at a series of meetings Friday discussed UFs character and the qualities its new president should have. Faculty members cited UFs affordability, student quality and research opportunities as notable strengths of the university. Later, the group of about 40 debated whether the new presidents background should be academic. We need a strong president who will really talk to the legislature, said College of Engineering profesPeople at the public forum talked about the importance of the president maintaining a balance between academics and athletics. The roughly 20 people who attended referenced the diversity of UFs Student Body and international presence. The new president, residents thought, should be an effective communicator who is creative enough to bring new funding to the university. He or she also needs to be approachable, value student engagement and be aware of the issues facing higher education. Similarly, the 20 students who attended the student forum agreed that UFs next president needs to be extremely student-oriented. Its a little frustrating when they say students are a focus and theres one student on the search committee, said Dustin Pfundheller, a 26year-old dental student. He and Casey LaMarche, a 27-year-old chemical engineering graduate student, thought it was important to choose a president who will recognize that graduate and professional students are as important to UF as undergraduates. Its still important to me that [all students] at UF feel like their president is doing good stuff for them, LaMarche said. Contact Julia Glum at jglum@ alligator.org.

MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Shannon Kaestle / AlligatorJuan Rodriguez, Student Senate treasurer, discusses UFs strengths and qualities with other students during a forum on the presidential search. Faculty, students and residents voice opinions about future UF president MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Writer for the last time. Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who traveled landing, died Saturday. The 82-year-old, who underwent heart surgery this month, passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, according to a statement from family members. He was 38 years old when he made his famous second trip into space with fellow astronauts Edwin Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. Alden Chodash, an 18-year-old chemical engineering freshman, said the lunar landing inspired several generations to overcome challenges. that the sky really isnt the limit, Chodash said. It opened up a whole new era of astrology and space exploration. Alex Chisholm, a 21-year-old physics senior, said Armstrong is an important role model for students who dream of traveling to space. He said he remembered the astronaut for his iconic phrase, Thats one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Its all summarized in that little quote, Chisholm said. It symbolizes what humanity is capable of.

Its not as simple as red or blue up its opinions pages. In our application, we usually ask applicants to include a brief explanation of their political and ideological viewpoints. We have been asking this question since last August, because the Alligator whether you believe we are a left-wing rag or a Fox News wannabe has tried to consistently include a diverse set of viewpoints. But we are also very adamant that our applicants avoid using partisan labels (i.e., Democrat or Republican) when describing their views. Whether the media and political elites like it or not, fewer who identify as Republican or Democrat over the years, a poll by the Pew Research Center shows that the number of people who identify as Independent has increased from about 26 percent of the electorate to 33 percent over the last 10 years. Watch MSNBC or Fox News on any given day, and its hard not to believe that the country is growing more polar ized. However, these media outlets and politicians fail to point out that, statistically, polarization is only really happening among the elites. Its getting even harder to separate us by political ideology, i.e., liberal or conservative. In 2008, political scientists Morris P. Fiorina and Samuel J. Abrams found that moderates continue to make up the largest category of the electorate, according to survey data. More importantly, there is still a debate among scholars about whether or not people actually know the meaning of terms such as liberal or conservative. How can we trust media polls and reports when people dont even know what these terms mean? How can we even begin to classify people into a dozen issues? If someone supports low taxes and less business regulation but supports gay marriage and drug legalization, is that per son a conservative or a liberal? Some would say that theyre a libertarian, but maybe they vote for the Democrats or even the Green Party. Given this ambiguity about the political leanings of Amer icans, why do we try to identify everyones political positions with labels that have become increasingly meaningless to most people? We the people often deserve just as much blame as the media and political elites. fectly into team red or team blue, those in power seek to increase the governments control and reach. Instead, shouldnt we be focusing on issues and not par ties? Shouldnt we be focusing on individual ideas and not ideological labels? their political beliefs or even that everyone care about politics. Just dont feel forced into following or supporting one of the two major parties without thinking or caring.A long time ago, when I was a weaker man, a friend of mine hosted a party and had the gall to charge everyone who went a cover. Not a suggested donation to cover party expenses; straight-up cover. Well call him Taylor Lautner. He alleged the party would be the talk of the university. The theme of the party was delightfully crude: CEOs party to get Taco Bell. When I arrived to pick him up, Taylor Lautner demanded I pay a cover to go in. I didnt want to make a scene, so I just paid him and found my friends. Only eight dudes and the hosts girlfriend had shown up. The dent made in the alcohol was far less than the dent in the attendees wallets. Taylor Lautner did not give us any of our money back. While this experience didnt serve as the wake-up call it should have for me, it did get the boulder rolling for one of the more important realizations to have here: There are a lot of crummy people at UF particularly of the sophomoric variety. While youll hear the administration and faculty boast of a continuing increase in the quality of students here, one need only attend a single lecture in an intro to telecommunication class to see that quite a few dumb-dumbs still get into UF. Hell, its only been three days, and Ive met a political science major who said the national issue of greatest import to her was Obamacare, because people seem to keep saying its something to be concerned about. If average GPA and SAT scores for the freshman class keep increasing, then how do these specimens of astounding stupidity continue to get into this university? I have a theory that isnt backed up by much evidence and probably has a lot of holes. However, my study of broadcast news has taught me that passing off such a theory as fact on prime-time teleof journalism, so thats exactly what Im going to do. (See: the Miami zombie never having done bath salts, whatever is playing on Fox News at the time of you reading this.) Whenever Ive had the misfortune of falling into a conver sation with a dumb-dumb, Ive asked them if their parents went here. Invariably, the majority of them say yes. I think UF, like many other universities across the country, weighs the children of alumni more favorably than kids who dont have any alumni in their immediate family. Why else would they ask you to list the alumni in your family on your application if they didnt? If you look up the history of admission statistics for UF or the history of any large state school, really schools accepted just about anyone. Spouses typically have similar levels of intelligence, as do their kids. Just to be clear, Im not saying all the children of alumni are part of this dumb-dumb infestation. I have a string of alumni in my immediate family myself that no doubt helped in my admission. But when you do meet someone in your classes with questionable credentials, how else can you explain it? Having alumni family members is one of the few remaining intelligence-neutral aspects of admission, since the state of Florida outlaws considering race and gender as factors. I cant think of any other way to explain the large number of premeds turned entrepreneurial club promoters who roam our halls. Can you? Chip Skambis is a telecommunication senior at UF.

Letters to the Editor MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7No need to fight when we can talkThe Israeli government is in an uproar about United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visiting Iran for a summit hosted by the Non-Aligned Movement, a group of 120 countries that formed during the Cold War. Many countries are those the United States has sought to marginalize. This year, Iran is hosting the summit and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cannot accept that Ban will just be talking to Iranian leaders and representatives. Netanyahu was quoted as saying to Ban, Your visit will grant legitimacy to a regime that is the greatest threat to world peace and security. Likewise, a pro-Israeli group, the American Jewish Committee, stated that Tehran should not be the place for Ban to visit because [he] would honor a regime that consistently ignores both him and the world body he heads in ways that threaten both regional and global security. I couldnt help but think that this quote actually seems to talk about many actions of the Israeli government! Such double standards. Talking never hurt anybody, and Iran is a sovereign country like Israel, which means Ban has every right and obligation to attend the Non-Aligned Movements meetings, as it is customary for the secretary general to do regardless of political sensitivities surrounding the host country. The Israeli government should welcome dialogue instead of preventing it, even if it dislikes which countries are communicating with each other and the United Nations Secretary-General. Additionally, Ban should not feel pressure from the Israeli government to avoid this summit. Nora Zaki UF Arabic, religion and political science senior Gov. Rick Scott and his advisers really need to get out more. If they were more clued in, Scott would not be out there taking credit for stopping the FCAT. Scott had nothing whatsoever to do with that. Gov. Charlie Crist implemented a plan to phase the FCAT out by 2014. The truth didnt stop approval-hungry Scott from starring in a Republican Party political ad denouncing the FCAT. We need our testing system to evolve so theres no more teaching to the test. Who can argue with that? Scotts boys must have been hyperventilating over their own cleverness. Thats brave of them to steal the very words moms and teachers have been saying for years. Scott goes on to say, Thats why, next year, our schools will move to a common core system. Wrong. Florida is not moving to Common Core because the FCAT is bad. Florida committed years ago to adopt the Common Core State Standards Initiative, which includes a test called the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC. Shameless pandering is not new for Scott, nor is twisting the truth to eke out approval points. Lets not forget that for 14 long years real children have been hurt by the high-stakes FCAT testing process. excited about learning. Every adult should be grief stricken over the millions of children who never learned to be critical thinkers because of these failed, politically driven reforms. In theory, the Common Core state standards are great. That means charter schools, voucher schools and traditional schools would be required to take the same tests and be measured by the same standards. Uniformity and equity. But this is Florida. Politicians and bureaucrats never miss an opportunity to use a new program to dismantle, defund and discredit traditional public schools. Scott isnt fooling the moms of this state. High-stakes testing is the problem. For the past 14 years, Florida students have shown small incremental gains and earned uneven successes on the National Assessment of Educational Progress exam. They have struggled with the constant change of one untested, expensive and unproven reform after another. Florida politicians have wasted billions of taxpayer dollars on the testing industry re-purposing a failed product. That money was intended for classrooms, not Pearson Test Prep. Its time for real parents and teachers to set the education policy table. We deserve to have a healthy suspicion of a reform agenda driven by unmitigated greed. The united effort of parents, teachers and school boards is the only thing standing between Floridas children and destructive high-stakes tests. Tallahassee bureaucrats can call it PARCC, FCAT or the Big Live or Die Test. If its high stakes, its not good for kids. Gov. Scott, your image team will have to work a lot harder to raise your credibility with us. Parents and teachers are determined to work together to renew the promise of highquality learning and embrace examinations that stem organically from teacher-driven classroom content, encourage critical thought and measure a level of mastery that cannot ever be bubbled in. One way or another, the parents of this state will be at that education policy table to clean up this mess. Kathleen Oropeza is co-founder of FundEducationNow.org, a non-partisan Florida-based education advocacy group working with concerned citizens/voters who demand that every childs as stated in Article IX, section 1 of the Florida Constitution.No one fooled by Scotts FCAT claims UWireKathleen OropezaUWire Sometimes, men just need to shut up. Todd Akin, a GOP representative from Missouri stance on abortion in cases of rape. If its a legitimate rape, Akin said, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. In light of these remarks, which Mitt Romney called inexcusable and President Obama condemned as offensive, Akin has since recanted his comments. Yet, despite calls from those in his own party to withdraw from the race, Akin announced Friday afternoon his determination to continue his campaign for U.S. Senate. In a video apology, Akin begs for the American publics forgiveness and said that he had used the wrong words, later vowing that despite it all, Im not a quitter, and by the grace of God, were going to win this race. In fact, everywhere you tune into this scandal, Akin is willing to give a sound bite, video clip or interview. Akins comments and his refusal to shut up about them show a complete lack of empathy and understanding toward women. His attitude also underscores why, as President Obama has said, we shouldnt have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health care decisions on behalf of women. Moreover, Akin exposes a nasty trend in our countrys discussions on womens discussions are largely determined by men. Men just need to shut up about womens issues. This doesnt mean that men are not allowed to have opinions on things like abortion and health care. Neither does it mean that men should just avoid talking about womens issues at all costs. By shut up, I mean men should employ a critical silence. This doesnt mean closing your eyes but rather opening your ears listening. By effectively stepping out of the way, listening can open up a space where women can speak for themselves. By doing more listening than talking, perhaps men could learn a few things themselves in this discussion, or at the very least, give women a platform from which to speak on their own terms. Rhetoric and composition scholar Krista Ratcliffe has called this Rhetorical Listening, or rather, a productive silence that engages public debate more by letting others speak. As a teacher of writing, we are often told to cultivate our own silence in classroom discussions, allowing our students to generate ideas without too much directive prodding. Similarly, the national dialogue in this country more rhetorically productive ways to engage the conver sation on womens health. In a world where almost 90 percent of violent crime and 99 percent of rape is committed by men, perhaps we need to cultivate a more critical silence on issues that pertain to women. In other words, men just need to shut up.

a mess. This team dictates that this season will not be kind to Muschamp. Forgive the clich, but if you have two quarterbacks, then you do not have one. Frankly, this team was better off with John Brantley in 2010. Also, is it really reasonable to rely on Mike Gillislee to anchor a running game hampered by inexperienced quarterbacks? Please. Gillislees predictions for his output this season are insane. He is not running for 1,500 yards, and there is no way he will score 24 touchdowns to break Tim Tebows single-season SEC record of 23. the end zone in the ground game 24 times combined in 2012. Until the receivers prove something, I am only giving them this one sentence. The same goes for the offensive line. The defense is full of gangbusters. Expect this unit to be tougher and more aggressive now that they have a full year in the Muschamp-Quinn scheme under their belts. When Matt Elam calls himself a predator, you dont laugh, and you dont run a route over the middle. Florida will play its opponents close with solid defense but will ultimately face The Gators have no starting quarterback, unproven receivers and a suspect offensive line. Apparently, a career backup at starting running back is Floridas only sure thing when it comes to the offense. In a weak SEC East, UF will not contend. The Ray Graves Trend will strike again in 2012. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Junior Chloe Mann couldnt be a more different player than she was at this time last year. in only two sets and notched a total of just three kills. In Florimore than doubled that number. Mann kept that level of dominance all weekend, earning MVP honors as the No. 18 Gators (3-0) swept the Campus USA Credit Union Invitational with wins against FIU, Florida A&M and Florida Gulf Coast. We have a pretty good combination there with Taylor Brauneis to Chloe Mann, that was pretty effective [Friday], coach Mary Wise said. Mann led the team in kills against FIU as Florida won 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-12) and tied with Betsy Smith for a team-high hitting percentage of .545. Mann didnt lead the Gators in hitting in a game last year until Sept. 3, when she had nine kills and hit .818 against Clemson. In addition to her progress in hitting percentage, Mann has also increased her kill count compared to the beginning of last year. In the three matches last weekend, Mann was able to rack up 42 kills; last year it took her 17 matches to accomplish that feat. Chloe and I have a really good relationship because we both trained as middles, Smith said. Last year we both were kind of better because we held each other accountable. To add to her list of improvements, didnt come until her 16th match, which was on Oct. 30 against Kentucky. This year it only took two sets against FIU to reach of the three matches. Its been awesome to see her progress, Smith said. Shes really hard to stop right now, and its awesome just to see that progression from her. second on the team in kills and third in hitting behind freshmen Ziva Recek and Berkley Whaley. However, she still remained a key contributor in the 3-0 (25-11, 25-11, 25-14) win with 11 kills, two digs and three blocks. and four total blocks to help Florida sweep FGCU 3-0 (25-16, 25-19, 25-16). Mann credits the change to experience. Just being in the program for three years and learning the schemes that we ran, being comfortable with the offense we ran, the coaches and my teammates, as well. During the weekend, the Gators held FIU, FAMU and FGCU to just .088 hitting, 70 kills, 67 assists and seven blocks, while Florida averaged .368 hitting, 132 kills, 119 assists, 110 digs and 18.5 blocks. Although Mann and the Gators dominated, Wise knows they have a tough week ahead as they get ready to take on No. 2 Texas and No. 6 Stanford. Some nights its not going to come easy, but it still doesnt mean we wont get everyones best shot, Wise said. This team will compete, and some nights it will be good enough and some nights it wont. The key is just keep getting better, and this group has a chance to do that. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org. Middle blocker Mann dominates in MVP performanceRotation remains undecidedThe head coach met with the quarterbacks before meeting the media on Friday and said their reaction to the news was positive. Muschamp said he and Pease would decide closer to game day exactly how they will rotate the two quarterbacks. He also said that Driskel, who has been bothered by a shoulder contusion, is still non-contact, although the injury has not affected the position battle. Both guys are very even and our footthem, Muschamp said. I told both of them today, the last position Im worried about is quarterback. I feel very comfortable about both guys. Injuries will affect the offensive line depth nior right tackle Matt Patchan will miss the opener with a strained pectoral muscle. On the other side of the line, James WilNixon and center Jonotthan Harrison. Defensively, there are four cornerbacks in the mix to start, including Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy, Cody Riggs and Jaylen Watkins. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn says the team will run nickel packages enough dence in each of them. I kind of had a feeling it would work itself out, Quinn said of the cornerback competition. It usually does through the course of the season. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. QUARTERBACK, from page 13 JOE, from page 13 UF Fo otball Gators sweep three-game tournamentMann
