SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterVisitors could hear the laughter before they saw the 25-foot-tall climbing wall towering over the downtown plaza. The second annual Labor Daze Fest, hosted at Bo Diddley Community Plaza, drew a crowd of about 2,000 people to celebrate the Labor Day weekend, said event organizer Trisha Ingle. The event showcased progressive groups and city vendors alongside community organizers who focused on services for the working class. Across the plaza, girls no older than 6 years old cartwheeled in the stubby grass while Occupy Gainesville members sat nearby fanning themselves with clipboards. Students for a Democratic Society was stationed near a potted-plant vendor, and an Obama for America tent sat next to a Hula-Hoop seller. Jose Soto, president of UFs Graduate Assistants United, said this years festival was bigger and better than the last. Last year, it was half of what you see here, the UF food and resource economics Ph.D. student said. Its been an exponential growth. He said the success stemmed from Ingle and her husband. They established the festival last year to unify the countys various progressive groups in a fun way. This year, Ingle felt the Labor Day celebration encompassed her original goal. We covered all of the bases, she said. We can celebrate the working people at the same time in the same place. Ingle wasnt the only person thrilled with the events success. Lisa Labbe, 50, smiled behind the Gainesville Area Chapter of the National Organization for Women tent. She said she collected more than two full pages of email addresses from interested attendants and was happy to reach out to the working community. I loved getting to talk to everyone about issues that are important to me, Labbe said. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@ alligator.org. Labor Daze festival serves working class KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterTurlington Plaza has noticeably been down one pair of hot shorts lately. On Aug. 24, Dennis Kane also known as the Turlington dancer said he woke up a little more edgy than usual. So when the 37-year-old started seeing students paying more attention to their phones than to their peers, his mind began reeling, starting a train of thought that would end with University Police trespassing him from campus. I started making the connection between them and those people who shoot people up, Kane said Thursday. According to a UPD report, Kane made a threatening statement while on Turlington Plaza on Aug. 24 at about searching campus for Kane at about 3 p.m. Kane said he had been shouting to about 60 people regarding the importance of being nice to one another. He said the reason mass shootings occur is because lonely individuals go crazy and start plotting revenge on society. But bystander Tammy Tang told police a different story, according to the UPD report. Kane was just shouting out about how he has no friends, the universe is meaningless and that we are all idiots, Tang wrote in a statement. She wrote that she and her friends began feeling uncomfortable when Kane said, I should just get a gun and start shooting people. Tang, a 19-year-old UF student, could not be reached for comment. Turlington Dancer banned from UF POLICE EJECTED 35 PEOPLE AND ARRESTED TWO. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterAs thousands of fans battled the 2012 Florida Gators football season, University Police and Gainesville dium ejections and arrests. At the UF-Bowling Green State University game on Saturday, police ejected a total of 35 people from the arrests of two UF students. According to a UPD press release, police issued six civil citations for alcohol possession inside the stadium. The most common reasons for ejections on Saturday were alcohol possession and fans standing on seats. This years game saw a decrease in ejections and arrests compared to last years season opener against Florida Atlantic University. On opening day in 2011, police ejected 53 people, issued four civil citations and arrested three people two for battery on a law enforcepossession. None of the arrests involved UF students, according to a UPD-archived press release. As part of a Gainesville city ordinance prohibiting alcohol inside the stadium, police will continue to issue citations to people caught with alcohol instead of arresting them, according to the release.

The class, which is being Fall, was created to bolster scene and to teach students how to organize and curate their own shows. Students will plan their own shows throughout the semester, but The Gong Show was a collective effort to kick off the class events.

Searcy and his family, alongside about 3,000 UF students, Gainesville residents and Gators fans, attended United Downtown to enjoy the community atmosphere and celebrate the home team in the streets of downtown Gainesville. The free, family-friendly event, hosted by United Way of North Central Florida, was the kickoff event for the 2012 football season. The organization is continuing the event after a successful run last year. There are three more of the events scheduled throughout the remainder of the season. The events will happen the Fridays before the Gators play Kentucky, Louisiana State University and South Carolina. The event brought together groups from alumni to baby Gators. Elderly couples in orange and blue strode together hand in hand as toddlers waited eagerly for custommade balloon hats. Weve been to these festivals about six times beforehand, said Jennison Searcy, 37, Issacs mother. I feel like I always run into my friends and families of his friends from school. Its a great community event. About 50 vendors came out for Friday nights festival, said Debbie Mason, president and CEO of the United Way of North Central Flor ida. Food trucks lined the end of the festival alongside restaurants, and attendees milled in and out of stores throughout the evening. Its great for families, Mason said. But if you dont have kids, you can still go buy a beer, sit on the plaza and listen to music. Live tunes on Bo Diddley Community Plaza entertained an audience on the lawn. Couples danced near Hula-Hooping children. Community vendors sold UF-inspired apparel and jewelry, drawing in Gators fans. Area artists painted fresh canvases on the street, showcasing their work. At the end of the street stood a giant Gator-head bounce house to fascinate young Florida fans. Its jaws snapped shut, chomping down as kids jumped as high as their little legs could take them. For Isaac and his family, the event was a way to celebrate The Gator Nation, and they said they plan to keep coming to the events. I came here because it was a Gator night, Isaac said, staring at the bounce house. Mason I wish Id seen a little more of some, I wish Id seen a little less of some.

KATHERINE HAHNAlligator Contributing WriterWhen two men and a gun UF garage last week, cellphones all over campus started buzzing with rapidand emails. A study released last many colleges arent fully utilizing social media especially when theres a crisis happening, according to more than half of the 1,187 respondents. But UF makes an effort to get emergency messages out quickly in as many ways as possible, Bruce Floyd, UF social media specialist, said. The university uses the InformaCast system, which allows the same sentences to be sent in different ways. Police dispatchers have access to the system, Floyd said. get the tweet, he said. In situations like the Aug. 30 incident, UPD decides on which media the alert should be displayed. Twitter, there is a Facebook page for UF Alerts. A speaker system in almost every classroom and broadcast audio alerts. UFs InformaCast system has been in place for about ment Coordinator Kenneth Allen said. The messages are based on prewritten templates, he said. Abbreviations are used to message character limits. If students arent getting ed they check the emergency contact information they entered on UFs websites. First-year mechanical engineering graduate student Zhiwei Huang, 26, said he thinks the way UF sends its alerts is effective. Huang said he doesnt mind getting multiple messages during crises because theyre always about something important.

Because there was no crime committed, anyone else would likely receive the same punishment. Kane said he doesnt know how his words were misconstrued. What I do is so abnormal that sometimes I feel guilty about making people feel very uncomfortable, Kane said. At Panera Bread on Thursday night, a few students asked Kane what happened. Do you think it was a hate crime? asked Richard Viera, a 20-year-old political science senior. Im not a piece of crap like everyone thinks I am, Kane responded. I deserve better treatment than that. Viera said he became accustomed to seeing Kane on campus this summer wearing scanty, bright ensembles. He was shocked to hear Kane was trespassed from UF, he said. ground is completely different than a guy in my face telling me Im going to hell, Viera said, referencing the religious speakers often on Turlington Plaza. Kane said he would like to get back onto UFs campus. Hes appealing the trespass charge. But he his previous home by University of California, Los Angeles would be good alternatives. If I was the kind of person who ultimately gave a crap, maybe Id have more to say, he said. Its like if someone is paralyzed on one side of their body, the other side can be really strong.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterPresident Barack Obama talked student loans, space program funding and beer in an unconventional interview on the Internet last week. Users of social news website reddit.com were invited to ask him anything, giving ordinary people including some UF students a chance to pick the presidents brain. With this, Obama and his team broke into yet another on sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. He leads Republican candidate Mitt Romney in social media use, according to adage.com. UF materials science and engineering junior Patrick Terry, 20, submitted a series of questions during the Obama AMA. But none made the cut the president only answered 10 questions. Terry, who moderates a Gainesville subreddit, sees the AMA as a campaign move. But he said it could further legitimize Reddit as a source of information, depending on whether or not it becomes a regular election stop. It may be. On Monday, Liber tarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson announced he will hold his second AMA on Reddit Sept. 11. In his AMA, Obama addressed student loans and post-graduate job prospects in response to a question from Hilary Lee, an unemployed 26-year-old Northwestern University Law School graduate. I understand how tough it is out there for recent grads, Obama wrote. But the key for your future, and all our futures, is an economy that is growing and creating solid middle-class jobs and thats why the choice in this election is so important. It was nothing groundbreaking, Lee said, but still exciting. He did have to think about it for a couple minutes, and it is in his mind more than it was before he started, she said. Obamas online presence was credited by many in 2008 for connecting with young voters and pushing them to the polls. This year, candidates digital engagement is under even more scrutiny. As of press time, the president has about 19 million followers on Twitter while Romney has about 1 million. Obama has about 28.2 million likes on Facebook as opposed to Romneys 6.2 million. The president has 1.2 million Instagram followers, but Romney has about 32,000. Politics aside, 20-year-old graphic design junior and Reddit user Jason McDade saw Obamas Internet interaction as a nice gesture. Its a neat little way to reach think that as a whole, it was a positive thing.

There are as many hard rules about it as there are soft understandings. So, what happens when rappers end up having pretty serious discussions about name-calling? Lupe Fiasco recently released a song titled B---h Bad. He invites fans to join him in analyzing the consequences of using the word b---h. Some of his lyrics include: It doesnt really matter if they have parental clearance They understand the Internet better than their parents Now being the Internet, the contents probably uncensored Theyre young, so theyre malleable and probably unmentored A complicated combination, maybe with no relevance Until that intelligence meets their favorite singers preference Bad b---hes, bad b---hes, bad b---hes Thats all I want and all I like in life is bad b---hes, bad b--hes. Fiasco is attempting to open up a dialogue about how young girls and boys are witnessing the usage of b---h in the overpermeating nature of pop culture. I think its something thats very subtle the idea of it, the tive elements to it, Lupe said in a conversation with RapFix Live. It has some troubling elements to it. Especially when you look at who its being marketed towards. Thats why we put the children in the video. The kids in the video are living in separate worlds. A young boy sees his mom singing along to lines like N----s, Im a bad b---h/ And Im that b---h/ Something thats far above average, and the young girls see rappers praising dancers while yelling derogatory terms at them. Which of these worlds is OK? Kanye West took to Twitter this weekend to open his own conversation about it. He tweeted: I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes... Is the word B---H acceptable?, To be even if its endearing? and Even typing it in question form its still feels harsh? Theres probably never a great time to call someone a b---h. Its a term that, traditionally, is used in a derogatory manner. Recently, though, female music artists such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have been using it in songs, perhaps in an attempt to reclaim it for themselves. Language is also a complicated thing. Does the conversation started by these two rap artists include the full scope of whats respectable to call a woman? Or should it start with how women refer to themselves? What we need to do is keep in mind who were calling what. Language is a helpful thing. It lets us label, describe and add detail. Just be careful of how you use it. No one wants Kanye to go on another Twitter rant about anything, so lets just keep it cool.Financial aid: the gift that keeps on givingEvery UF students favorite email is the one stating, Financial Aid has been disbursed to your account. Many of the social networking updates I read last weekend Lets start by appreciating the fact that a number of federal programs are inclined to support our generations students. Floridas Bright Futures program is an excellent one for rewarding high school achievement with monetary support for higher education. We should also be thrilled to know that funding for Federal Pell Grants is set to increase under President Obamas Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act. Also, after much lobbying, plans to double student loan interest rates in July were successfully halted. Im most certainly appreciative, but Ill save my political talk for a different column. The facts are pretty simple: A college education costs money. Finances are needed for tuition, textbooks, technology and the expense of living and eating away from home for Ideally, one of the main reasons we go to college is to make an investment in ourselves and our futures. With this, we hope to be able to live the types of lifestyles we desire, whatever they may be. Through tuition waivers, scholarships and grants, some students are fortunate enough to receive so much help that their tuition and fees are paid and extra money is left over. form of cold, hard cash into personal bank accounts. it that so many of these funds are so easily given out when every students need has not been fully met? students do not have their costs completely covered. Whats arent school costs. Financial aid merely becomes free money to be spent frivolously on anything a student chooses. This leads me to the gift and curse that is the student loan. It is awesome to know that our government supports the availability of higher education to anyone who desires it. However, even with grants and scholarships, some students are required to borrow additional funds in order to afford textbooks, housing fees and other expenses associated with school. pay for things like cars, scooters, Greek-organization chapter dues, shopping sprees or other unnecessary and outrageous expenses. The debate begins over what one man considers a necessity and what another sees as a luxury. Although many feel some things are vital for the college experience, are they really worth putting yourself into debt? No. My suggestion is to avoid taking out a loan unless you have exhausted all other options. If you simply want something but cant afford it, please dont take out a student loan to pay for it. The thing about these loans is once you start taking them, they become harder to decline each semester. We are creatures of habit, so doing something a couple of times only makes it easier to continue. to you, use it wisely. Set it aside for essentials you know you will have to pay for such as meals or housing payments. Start learning how to save now. You never know when an emergency expense may arise. Financial aid keeps on giving. Too bad it doesnt always give whats good. lated loan interest, stress, pressure, confusion or judgment, learn to use the government and other sponsors money wisely.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 As a former Eagle Scout, I was shocked to learn of the Boy Scouts of Americas decision to uphold discriminatory membership standards that exclude LGBTQ youth and volunteers from the organization. I protest the unwillingness of the National Executive Board to make the deliberation of its review committee public, which has only promoted inaction on this issue and discredited scouts everywhere. Scouting in my local troop has life, and I am grateful to the adult leaders who mentored me, taught me and dedicated their time and effort to assist in opening doors to the outdoors, to community service, to their workplaces and to fun. Scouting introduced me to other people my age and kept some of us together for more than 10 years. Scouting can be a wonderful people. It encourages children to be active in their communities, to connected with nature. The organization is composed of more than 2.7 million youth members, each of whom is in the process of maturing into a man. To ostracize any one of them, which the organization has done directly in the past, on the basis of his developing sexual identity, or to passively highlight his deviation from the norm of behavior in scouting is unconscionable. The BSA should look to its (independently operated) counter part, Girl Scouts of America, to learn what it means to be tolerant of differences while advocating for and empowering its members. Instead, the BSA continues to dophilia among its adult volunteers, whether the BSA will admit to it or not. This is an unworthy slight and discourages parents who are active as scout leaders from valuing their childrens chosen identities in the private introductions and discussions the BSA suggests parents have with their children about sexuality. Moreover, the organization has well-established, existing safeguards to protect its scouts, such as two-deep adult leader ship and extensive youth protection training. The BSA believes that it is speaking for a majority of parents and volunteers in its decision. This may be true, but the BSA has not made its process open to input, instead falling back on cryptic and discouraging statements like, the introduction of a resolution is procedural and handled with respect but does not indicate the organization is reviewing a policy or signal a change in direction. The 10th point of the Scout Law states that scouts are brave. Its national leadership is not. Those individuals hide behind the 2000 Boy Scouts of America v. Dale court decision that allows the BSA, as a private organization, to set its own membership policies for the protection of its expressive message. According to the Supreme an organization for most of my life that has anti-LGBTQ advocacy as a primary reason for its existence. Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the scout movement, would be surprised. My troop was privileged to have its meeting place in a local elementary school. I participated in the Eagle Project of a scout who organized a birdhouse-building project for students. If homophobia continhowever, valuable partnerships between public schools and local scouting will be put into jeopardy. The New York City public school system barred its doors to scout troops in the wake of BSA v. Dale, and more bans will surely be implemented this year. It would make me angry to see my own troop become a pariah and lose some of the respect that the Boy Scouts have traditionally been accorded as a result of the closed-door decisions of a small committee. I feel that I can no longer publicly associate myself with the BSA. When and I believe the change to be inevitable the BSA amends its membership policy, I will be its foremost advocate. Eagle Scouts are told regularly that the responsibilities of the rank do not end with adulthood, and I do not intend to absolve myself of my duty. For my love of scouting, and per my duty as a lifelong scout, I intend to protest the policies of the national organization until they change. I encourage other people whose lives have been touched by scouting to do the same. Aaron Koenig is a columnist at The Dartmouth at Dartmouth College.Boy Scouts anti-gay policy abhorrentUWire Have you noticed how news outlets now include tweets as part of the news? Many newscasts now talk about celebrity Twitter accounts and any tweet that is outrageous enough to comment on. It seems as if a person cant get through a single news report on the TV or read an article in the paper without hearing about a recent tweet from so-and-so. Honestly, who cares? Better yet, why should I care? Twitter, like Facebook, is a great communication tool if used properly. But when mishandled, things can go terribly wrong. Some examples of out-ofline tweets can be seen with the recent London Olympics. With more than 150 million tweets about the Olympics posted during the 16 days of the games, Twitter was declared the winner in what some are calling the Social Olympics. There were about 80,000 Olympic tweets per minute published after Usain Bolt won the gold medal in the information given by Twitter in an article for Australian paper The Age. The tweets started with Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou, who tweeted a racist comment mocking African immigrants on her personal Twitter account. Papachristou was expelled from Greeces Olympic team for saying, With so many Africans in Greece, at least the mosquitoes of West Nile mosquitoes will be eat homemade food. Swiss soccer team player Michel Morganella was the second athlete to be kicked out of the 2012 Olympic Games after posting a racist and threatening tweet saying South Koreas athletes were retards and should burn themselves shortly after Switzerlands 2-1 loss to South Korea. When the French and textspeak tweet is translated into English, Morganella tweeted something along the lines of, I want to beat up all South Koreans. Bunch of mentally handicapped retards. Because of their need to blow off steam or show their racist colors to the rest of the world, it cost them big-time. Plus, from now on, whenever their name is brought up they are forever tied to that tweet. These types of postings have been happening on Twitter for quite some time and have been making headline news, along with negatively affecting those who use the social media tool in the wrong way. Back in 2010, Aussie swimmer Stephanie Rice tweeted suck on that faggots after Australia beat South Africa at rugby. In recent times, she has racy picture of herself wearing a two-piece swimsuit that left little to the imagination. During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Twitter did not have as big of a role as it did in this years Olympics. There were more tweets in a single day than during the entire 2008 Beijing Games, Twitter reps wrote in a blog post. My favorite part about the aftermath of these rash and senseless tweets is the Im sorry tweet afterward. All three athletes above tweeted their apologies, with Rice apologizing to the public in a tearful news conference. Well, if you werent careless with your actions, you wouldnt have anything to pretend to be sorry for. They are not sorry for what they said; they are sorry they got slammed for the tweet. As always, the few ruin it for the rest of us, giving Twitter an image which teeter-totters between good and bad. The solution to the trouble the Olympic athletes got themselves into is to be more discreet, and it applies to the rest of us, too. Take an extra two seconds of your time to think twice about your next post. And if you decide that your mother would be disappointed in you if she saw it, give her and dont make the post. Maybe the solution is as simple as a short quote from Whenever Im about to do something, I think, Would an idiot do that? And if they would, I do not do that thing.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG McKenzie Barney was a key piece of UFs resurgent attack on Sunday, scoring one of three goals in a win against FIU. See story, page 16. Poll Question:Did Will Muschamp make the right call by naming Jeff Driskel the starting quarterback? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. MUSCHAMP CHOSE DRISKEL BECAUSE OF HIS MOBILITY. JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Will Muschamp didnt want to name a starting quarterback following Saturdays win against Bowling Green, but he decided to end the speculation on Monday by naming Jeff Driskel his starter. Its been a lifelong dream, Driskel said. Obviously to be the quarterback at a university like this is a big achievement, but Im just excited to really be able to take command of the offense. To really hone in on what I got to do and be ready to go to win in Texas A&M. Muschamp said the decision was not based solely on the quarterbacks play against Bowling Green but rather a complete evaluation of everything they had done since spring practices. While players and coaches maintained throughout spring and fall that Driskel and Jacoby Brissett were even in the quarterback competition, Muschamp said he does not plan to pull his starter as soon as something goes wrong. It will be Jeffs game to play, Muschamp said of Saturdays Southeastern Conference opener against Texas A&M. I told Jeff, I dont want you looking over your shoulder, but you need to play well. Even though Driskel wont be on a short leash, Muschamp said he has stressed to Brissett the importance of being able to go in at a moments notice, adding that Brissett is one play away from being the starter. Jacoby will still get reps, Muschamp said. Hell be repped at practice and certainly will be ready when called on. I just feel like we needed to get to the turns and reps and the snaps as we move forward. Driskel was at the helm for the entire second half against the Falcons after playing the 114 yards and a touchdown. Brissett played most of the second quarter, completing 3 of 5 passes for 31 yards in three drives. Although Muschamp exteams chances to win with either quarterback, he said Driskels ability to make plays running the ball factored into the decision. Against Bowling Green, Driskel carried the ball three times for 24 yards. Its nothing Jacoby didnt do, Muschamp said of his decision. (I) just feel like Jeff with the legs, gives us some different variables in our offense that can help us move forward. Driskel made the longest throw of his career when he connected with Frankie Hammond Jr. on a 50-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to extend the Gators lead to 10 points. Hammond also praised Driskels scrambling skills. He brings a lot to the table, Hammond said. Hes a versatile quarterback. Things break down in the pocket, he is able to stretch plays, and he can run the ball as well, and that is something derespect. When asked what areas Driskel could improve after his performance against the Falcons, Muschamp did not offer too many critiques.David Carr / Alligator StaffJeff Driskel takes a shotgun snap during Saturdays win against Bowling Green at Driskel named Floridas starterSEE DRISKEL, PAGE 15 GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer Mike Gillislee showed he has what it takes to be a workhorse in Saturdays season opener. Now he has to prove he can hold up through a 12game season. After Gillislee carried the ball 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns against Bowling Green, coach Will Muschamp said on Monday that he would like for a second option to emerge so UF can keep Gillislees touches at a manageable level. ried the ball at least 24 times per game last season. Freshman Matt Jones ran the ball three times for 17 yards on Saturday, while Omarius Hines had four carries for 14 yards and Mack Brown had four carries for 13 yards. As we move forward, Matt and Mack need to separate themselves in some form or fashion to continue to get [Gillislee] the touches we need for him to have in a game, Muschamp said. Dominique Easley admits he had a few butfering a left ACL tear against Florida game at defensive end, so the junior was understandably anxious. His fears grew momentarily when Gators looking for No. 2 RB FIRE JOE MORGAN Florida coach Will Muschamp named Jeff Driskel the starting quarterback on Monday, but that doesnt mean much. The Gators are runners. Muschamp made Floridas commitment to the ground game clear after Saturdays win against Bowling Green. We need to establish the run, Muschamp said. You cant talk about it. You got to be about it and you got to do it. We made the decision going into the game. Thats what were going to do. In their season opener, the Gators ran the ball with fervor. Florida racked up 42 carries compared to just 21 passing attempts. After Driskel opened the second quarter with a ran the ball on 10 straight plays. Mike Gillislee, the go-to workhorse in Muschamps running back stable, logged a team-high 24 carries for 148 yards on Saturday. No UF player carried the ball more than 23 times in a single game last season. However many times I have to get the ball, thats how many times I get the ball, Gillislee said. UF can thrive as a run-oriented offense. Though unproven, Gillislee is a talented back, and Matt Jones proved effective in a backup role. Even Mack Brown and Omarius Hines appeared serviceable, but how reliable each player will be over the course of a full season remains to be seen. Gillislee may be on pace to surpass his preseason predictions of 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2012, but he will not.

We had the one naked (bootleg) on the goal line and had a chance to get the ball off, Muschamp said. We need to get that one off. We had an opportunity to convert that third down and didnt. Other than that, he took the ball to the right spots. He had two drops. Both could have been caught. I think he did some good things, as far as management of what were trying to do. As Driskel prepares to play at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, on Saturday, he doesnt expect to be fazed by the crowd of more than 80,000 fans. His experiences on the road last season have given him a good idea of what to expect. man season. Weve played in atmospheres like were going to see in Texas A&M.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Florida 27, Bowling Green 14 With Bowling Green at Floridas 23-yard line and trailing by only 3 points, Marcus Roberson intercepted a Matt Schilz pass on the first play of the fourth quarter. Roberson returned the pick to the UF 47, killing Bowling Greens momentum and setting up UFs final touchdown. Marcus Roberson Gillislee was a workhorse for the Gators on Saturday, rushing 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns. His average of 6.2 yards per UFs No. 1 back dwarfed the four other backs combined 3.8 yards per carry. After dropping a pair of passes early in the game, Hammond bounced back to score a 50-yard touchdown Saturdays longest play from scrimmage. with three catches for 62 yards. SWAMP STUDS Frankie Hammond Jr. WR 14Florida committed 14 penalties for 106 yards on fouls, three offsides, three false starts, three delays of games and a substitution infraction. KEY STAT Mike Gillislee RB TURNING POINT DB UF and Bowling Green were tied midway through the third quarter when punter Brian Schmiedebuschs kick traveled only 10 yards, setting UF up at the Bowling Green 18-yard line. Caleb Sturgis field goal gave UF the lead four plays later. THREE KEY PLAYS Mike Gillislee 3 Marcus Roberson 2 Frankie Hammond Jr. 1 STANDINGS Roberson showed no ill effects from last seasons serious neck injury, breaking up three passes and turnover of the season with play of the fourth quarter. the game tied at seven, Mike Gillislee needed only one play to give UF the lead. Gillislee started left, cut back right and bounced outside before cutting past a Bowling Green safety and sprinting 38 yards for the score. Frankie Hammond Jr. gave UFs slow, methodical offense a spark early in the fourth quarter, when he caught Driskels pass on a curl route, broke a tackle and then split three Bowling Green defenders to reach the endzone. The score stretched UFs lead to a comfortable 10 points. 1 2 3 4 Final Bowling Green Florida 14 7 0 27 0 14 7 3 0 10 SCORE BY QUARTERSJackie Joiner / Alligator Staff thats OK. Floridas running backs do this season. They just have to do enough to get the offense moving. Bowling Green is a Mid-Amer ican Conference squad. The Falrushing defense last year. Slowing down a Southeastern Confer ence opponent at all would have been an accomplishment for those guys. Saturdays game was merely a running backs. But its early. As Floridas inexperienced group gains experience and in-game reps, they will only continue to improve. The departures of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey are a blessing in disguise for the Gators. Finally, UF can return to a regular north-south running game instead of accommodating speedsters who are useless running between the tackles on a regular basis. Sure, trying to ram it down the throats of teams like LSU, Georgia and South Carolina may seem like a misguided strategy. But its the way things are done in the SEC. The good teams can pound the rock, and the bad teams cannot. When December rolls around, players recognized in New York as Brown will still be known primar ily as the Texas coach, Jones will be the fourth-most popular last name in the United States and Hines will be ketchup. But together, this group of guys will be the reason the UF offense is respectable. Naming a starting quarterback is good news for Florida. But if the Gators do anything of note this season, it will be because they are runners. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

Injury updates: Offensive tackle Matt Patchan is expected to miss Saturdays game against Texas A&M with a pectoral injury, but Muschamp is encouraged by his progress. Im hoping for Tennessee, but Im not sure of that, either, Muschamp said. Hes doing everything he can do to get back. I know that rehab is going well, and everything has been very positive on that end. Trainers projected Patchans recovery time at four weeks. Muschamp said the healing process is currently ahead of schedule, prompting the team to expect an earlier return. seen action in only 27 games due to a variety of medical issues.

FLORIDA LAUNCHED A SEASON-HIGH 24 SHOTS IN SUNDAYS 3-0 WIN. ADAM LICHTENSTEIN Alligator Writer After facing two in-state rivals early in the season and scoring only one goal, Floridas offense came alive on Sunday against Florida International, scoring three goals on 24 shots. Weve come a long way since the last time we played [at home], coach Becky Burleigh said. I was really, really pleased with everything tonight in terms of our ability to generate goal-scoring chances. The Gators 24 shots, 10 of which were on goal, were a season-high, doubling their previous best of 12 against Florida State on Friday. Although Florida tied its season-high goal total, the large number of shots displayed the Gators lack Thats the No. 1 thing that the coaches said when we came off after the game is, Great game, but if we ferent game, redshirt senior McKenzie Barney said. Barney scored the second goal against FIU. Florida failed to convert several chances on Sunday. Near the end of the game, Barney got a one-onone opportunity against FIU goalkeeper Kaitlyn Savage, but her shot rolled past the post, missing a goal by a couple of feet. a ball in front of the net and sophomore Annie Speese headed it, but the ball sailed over the net. [Leon] gave some great balls that should have been assists, Burleigh said. They were perfectly on the end of. sophomore Havana Solaun. Solaun took four shots; three were on goal and two resulted in scores. we probably wanted to, but we did what we need to, Solaun said. Solaun nearly tied the game against FSU on Friday. Solaun scored on goalkeeper Kelsey Wys early in the second half, but the referee ruled her offsides. Another player who saw a lot of action was sophof the year when she fed the ball to Solaun for the Gators opening goal. said. She served some great balls in the box. We really wanted to come out and show that come out with a win. Gators attack finding its groove JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Writer Mary Wise has no doubt that her team can attack the ball. But the Gators defense is full of question marks. This past weekend, No. 15 Florida traveled to University Park, Pa., to compete in the Nike Big Four Classic, where losses to No. 4 Texas and No. 8 Stanford revealed the teams weaknesses. The Gators digging in the back cerns following the tournament and the exhibition match against the Slovenian Junior National Team on Monday. After Saturdays match against the Cardinal, Wise said her personnel didnt match up with those top-10 teams, and her players will have to develop those skills as the year progresses. Were not there yet, Wise said. We scored enough points to win those, we blocked enough balls, we had enough faces, we had enough scoring. Florida allowed season-high hitting percentages of .313 and .331 against Texas and Stanford. Although the Gators offense kept pace matches, Wise is still counting on the two primary defensive specialists, Taylor Unroe and Madison Monserez, to make Florida a balanced squad. Both Unroe and Monserez said the issue is not skill or ability but chemistry and focus. Sometimes its like a disconnect, Unroe said. Well hesitate for a ball, and I think get to the ball, we can compete with anybody. Even with Kelly Murphy and Kristy Jaeckel, who combined for 34 percent of Floridas digs last year, Florida still ranked 259th out of 321 NCAA teams with 13.59 digs per set. This year, the Gators have only 13.4 digs per set. We have the ability, Monserez said. We kind of were a little more laid back and, Well get the next one, kind of thing. I think in the be, We need it now, we need this ery point is important. Florida looking for better defense from back-row playersUnroe Digs total lower than last seasons

SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterVisitors could hear the laughter before they saw the 25-foot-tall climbing wall towering over the downtown plaza. The second annual Labor Daze Fest, hosted at Bo Diddley Community Plaza, drew a crowd of about 2,000 people to celebrate the Labor Day weekend, said event organizer Trisha Ingle. The event showcased progressive groups and city vendors alongside community organizers who focused on services for the working class. Across the plaza, girls no older than 6 years old cartwheeled in the stubby grass while Occupy Gainesville members sat nearby fanning themselves with clipboards. Students for a Democratic Society was stationed near a potted-plant vendor, and an Obama for America tent sat next to a Hula-Hoop seller. Jose Soto, president of UFs Graduate Assistants United, said this years festival was bigger and better than the last. Last year, it was half of what you see here, the UF food and resource economics Ph.D. student said. Its been an exponential growth. He said the success stemmed from Ingle and her husband. They established the festival last year to unify the countys various progressive groups in a fun way. This year, Ingle felt the Labor Day celebration encompassed her original goal. We covered all of the bases, she said. We can celebrate the working people at the same time in the same place. Ingle wasnt the only person thrilled with the events success. Lisa Labbe, 50, smiled behind the Gainesville Area Chapter of the National Organization for Women tent. She said she collected more than two full pages of email addresses from interested attendants and was happy to reach out to the working community. I loved getting to talk to everyone about issues that are important to me, Labbe said. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@ alligator.org. Labor Daze festival serves working class KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterTurlington Plaza has noticeably been down one pair of hot shorts lately. On Aug. 24, Dennis Kane also known as the Turlington dancer said he woke up a little more edgy than usual. So when the 37-year-old started seeing students paying more attention to their phones than to their peers, his mind began reeling, starting a train of thought that would end with University Police trespassing him from campus. I started making the connection between them and those people who shoot people up, Kane said Thursday. According to a UPD report, Kane made a threatening statement while on Turlington Plaza on Aug. 24 at about searching campus for Kane at about 3 p.m. Kane said he had been shouting to about 60 people regarding the importance of being nice to one another. He said the reason mass shootings occur is because lonely individuals go crazy and start plotting revenge on society. But bystander Tammy Tang told police a different story, according to the UPD report. Kane was just shouting out about how he has no friends, the universe is meaningless and that we are all idiots, Tang wrote in a statement. She wrote that she and her friends began feeling uncomfortable when Kane said, I should just get a gun and start shooting people. Tang, a 19-year-old UF student, could not be reached for comment. Turlington Dancer banned from UF POLICE EJECTED 35 PEOPLE AND ARRESTED TWO. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterAs thousands of fans battled the 2012 Florida Gators football season, University Police and Gainesville dium ejections and arrests. At the UF-Bowling Green State University game on Saturday, police ejected a total of 35 people from the arrests of two UF students. According to a UPD press release, police issued six civil citations for alcohol possession inside the stadium. The most common reasons for ejections on Saturday were alcohol possession and fans standing on seats. This years game saw a decrease in ejections and arrests compared to last years season opener against Florida Atlantic University. On opening day in 2011, police ejected 53 people, issued four civil citations and arrested three people two for battery on a law enforcepossession. None of the arrests involved UF students, according to a UPD-archived press release. As part of a Gainesville city ordinance prohibiting alcohol inside the stadium, police will continue to issue citations to people caught with alcohol instead of arresting them, according to the release.

L OC AL RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Contributing WriterClad in a Gators shirt and following a half step behind his mother, 3-year-old Isaac Searcy babbled in his tiny toddler way about his favorite football team. Searcy and his family, alongside about 3,000 UF students, Gainesville residents and Gators fans, attended United Downtown to enjoy the community atmosphere and celebrate the home team in the streets of downtown Gainesville. The free, family-friendly event, hosted by United Way of North Central Florida, was the kickoff event for the 2012 football season. The organization is continuing the event after a successful run last year. There are three more of the events scheduled throughout the remainder of the season. The events will happen the Fridays before the Gators play Kentucky, Louisiana State University and South Carolina. The event brought together groups from alumni to baby Gators. Elderly couples in orange and blue strode together hand in hand as toddlers waited eagerly for custommade balloon hats. Weve been to these festivals about six times beforehand, said Jennison Searcy, 37, Issacs mother. I feel like I always run into my friends and families of his friends from school. Its a great community event. About 50 vendors came out for Friday nights festival, said Debbie Mason, president and CEO of the United Way of North Central Flor ida. Food trucks lined the end of the festival alongside restaurants, and attendees milled in and out of stores throughout the evening. Its great for families, Mason said. But if you dont have kids, you can still go buy a beer, sit on the plaza and listen to music. Live tunes on Bo Diddley Community Plaza entertained an audience on the lawn. Couples danced near Hula-Hooping children. Community vendors sold UF-inspired apparel and jewelry, drawing in Gators fans. Area artists painted fresh canvases on the street, showcasing their work. At the end of the street stood a giant Gator-head bounce house to fascinate young Florida fans. Its jaws snapped shut, chomping down as kids jumped as high as their little legs could take them. For Isaac and his family, the event was a way to celebrate The Gator Nation, and they said they plan to keep coming to the events.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterPresident Barack Obama talked student loans, space program funding and beer in an unconventional interview on the Internet last week. Users of social news website reddit.com were invited to ask him anything, giving ordinary people including some UF students a chance to pick the presidents brain. With this, Obama and his team broke into yet another on sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. He leads Republican candidate Mitt Romney in social media use, according to adage.com. UF materials science and engineering junior Patrick Terry, 20, submitted a series of questions during the Obama AMA. But none made the cut the president only answered 10 questions. Terry, who moderates a Gainesville subreddit, sees the AMA as a campaign move. But he said it could further legitimize Reddit as a source of information, depending on whether or not it becomes a regular election stop. It may be. On Monday, Liber tarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson announced he will hold his second AMA on Reddit Sept. 11. In his AMA, Obama addressed student loans and post-graduate job prospects in response to a question from Hilary Lee, an unemployed 26-year-old Northwestern University Law School graduate. I understand how tough it is out there for recent grads, Obama wrote. But the key for your future, and all our futures, is an economy that is growing and creating solid middle-class jobs and thats why the choice in this election is so important. It was nothing groundbreaking, Lee said, but still exciting. He did have to think about it for a couple minutes, and it is in his mind more than it was before he started, she said. Obamas online presence was credited by many in 2008 for connecting with young voters and pushing them to the polls. This year, candidates digital engagement is under even more scrutiny. As of press time, the president has about 19 million followers on Twitter while Romney has about 1 million. Obama has about 28.2 million likes on Facebook as opposed to Romneys 6.2 million. The president has 1.2 million Instagram followers, but Romney has about 32,000. Politics aside, 20-year-old graphic design junior and Reddit user Jason McDade saw Obamas Internet interaction as a nice gesture. Its a neat little way to reach think that as a whole, it was a positive thing.

There are as many hard rules about it as there are soft understandings. So, what happens when rappers end up having pretty serious discussions about name-calling? Lupe Fiasco recently released a song titled B---h Bad. He invites fans to join him in analyzing the consequences of using the word b---h. Some of his lyrics include: It doesnt really matter if they have parental clearance They understand the Internet better than their parents Now being the Internet, the contents probably uncensored Theyre young, so theyre malleable and probably unmentored A complicated combination, maybe with no relevance Until that intelligence meets their favorite singers preference Bad b---hes, bad b---hes, bad b---hes Thats all I want and all I like in life is bad b---hes, bad b--hes. Fiasco is attempting to open up a dialogue about how young girls and boys are witnessing the usage of b---h in the overpermeating nature of pop culture. I think its something thats very subtle the idea of it, the tive elements to it, Lupe said in a conversation with RapFix Live. It has some troubling elements to it. Especially when you look at who its being marketed towards. Thats why we put the children in the video. The kids in the video are living in separate worlds. A young boy sees his mom singing along to lines like N----s, Im a bad b---h/ And Im that b---h/ Something thats far above average, and the young girls see rappers praising dancers while yelling derogatory terms at them. Which of these worlds is OK? Kanye West took to Twitter this weekend to open his own conversation about it. He tweeted: I usually never tweet questions but I struggle with this so here goes... Is the word B---H acceptable?, To be even if its endearing? and Even typing it in question form its still feels harsh? Theres probably never a great time to call someone a b---h. Its a term that, traditionally, is used in a derogatory manner. Recently, though, female music artists such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj have been using it in songs, perhaps in an attempt to reclaim it for themselves. Language is also a complicated thing. Does the conversation started by these two rap artists include the full scope of whats respectable to call a woman? Or should it start with how women refer to themselves? What we need to do is keep in mind who were calling what. Language is a helpful thing. It lets us label, describe and add detail. Just be careful of how you use it. No one wants Kanye to go on another Twitter rant about anything, so lets just keep it cool.Financial aid: the gift that keeps on givingEvery UF students favorite email is the one stating, Financial Aid has been disbursed to your account. Many of the social networking updates I read last weekend Lets start by appreciating the fact that a number of federal programs are inclined to support our generations students. Floridas Bright Futures program is an excellent one for rewarding high school achievement with monetary support for higher education. We should also be thrilled to know that funding for Federal Pell Grants is set to increase under President Obamas Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act. Also, after much lobbying, plans to double student loan interest rates in July were successfully halted. Im most certainly appreciative, but Ill save my political talk for a different column. The facts are pretty simple: A college education costs money. Finances are needed for tuition, textbooks, technology and the expense of living and eating away from home for Ideally, one of the main reasons we go to college is to make an investment in ourselves and our futures. With this, we hope to be able to live the types of lifestyles we desire, whatever they may be. Through tuition waivers, scholarships and grants, some students are fortunate enough to receive so much help that their tuition and fees are paid and extra money is left over. form of cold, hard cash into personal bank accounts. it that so many of these funds are so easily given out when every students need has not been fully met? students do not have their costs completely covered. Whats arent school costs. Financial aid merely becomes free money to be spent frivolously on anything a student chooses. This leads me to the gift and curse that is the student loan. It is awesome to know that our government supports the availability of higher education to anyone who desires it. However, even with grants and scholarships, some students are required to borrow additional funds in order to afford textbooks, housing fees and other expenses associated with school. pay for things like cars, scooters, Greek-organization chapter dues, shopping sprees or other unnecessary and outrageous expenses. The debate begins over what one man considers a necessity and what another sees as a luxury. Although many feel some things are vital for the college experience, are they really worth putting yourself into debt? No. My suggestion is to avoid taking out a loan unless you have exhausted all other options. If you simply want something but cant afford it, please dont take out a student loan to pay for it. The thing about these loans is once you start taking them, they become harder to decline each semester. We are creatures of habit, so doing something a couple of times only makes it easier to continue. to you, use it wisely. Set it aside for essentials you know you will have to pay for such as meals or housing payments. Start learning how to save now. You never know when an emergency expense may arise. Financial aid keeps on giving. Too bad it doesnt always give whats good. lated loan interest, stress, pressure, confusion or judgment, learn to use the government and other sponsors money wisely.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 As a former Eagle Scout, I was shocked to learn of the Boy Scouts of Americas decision to uphold discriminatory membership standards that exclude LGBTQ youth and volunteers from the organization. I protest the unwillingness of the National Executive Board to make the deliberation of its review committee public, which has only promoted inaction on this issue and discredited scouts everywhere. Scouting in my local troop has life, and I am grateful to the adult leaders who mentored me, taught me and dedicated their time and effort to assist in opening doors to the outdoors, to community service, to their workplaces and to fun. Scouting introduced me to other people my age and kept some of us together for more than 10 years. Scouting can be a wonderful people. It encourages children to be active in their communities, to connected with nature. The organization is composed of more than 2.7 million youth members, each of whom is in the process of maturing into a man. To ostracize any one of them, which the organization has done directly in the past, on the basis of his developing sexual identity, or to passively highlight his deviation from the norm of behavior in scouting is unconscionable. The BSA should look to its (independently operated) counter part, Girl Scouts of America, to learn what it means to be tolerant of differences while advocating for and empowering its members. Instead, the BSA continues to dophilia among its adult volunteers, whether the BSA will admit to it or not. This is an unworthy slight and discourages parents who are active as scout leaders from valuing their childrens chosen identities in the private introductions and discussions the BSA suggests parents have with their children about sexuality. Moreover, the organization has well-established, existing safeguards to protect its scouts, such as two-deep adult leader ship and extensive youth protection training. The BSA believes that it is speaking for a majority of parents and volunteers in its decision. This may be true, but the BSA has not made its process open to input, instead falling back on cryptic and discouraging statements like, the introduction of a resolution is procedural and handled with respect but does not indicate the organization is reviewing a policy or signal a change in direction. The 10th point of the Scout Law states that scouts are brave. Its national leadership is not. Those individuals hide behind the 2000 Boy Scouts of America v. Dale court decision that allows the BSA, as a private organization, to set its own membership policies for the protection of its expressive message. According to the Supreme an organization for most of my life that has anti-LGBTQ advocacy as a primary reason for its existence. Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the scout movement, would be surprised. My troop was privileged to have its meeting place in a local elementary school. I participated in the Eagle Project of a scout who organized a birdhouse-building project for students. If homophobia continhowever, valuable partnerships between public schools and local scouting will be put into jeopardy. The New York City public school system barred its doors to scout troops in the wake of BSA v. Dale, and more bans will surely be implemented this year. It would make me angry to see my own troop become a pariah and lose some of the respect that the Boy Scouts have traditionally been accorded as a result of the closed-door decisions of a small committee. I feel that I can no longer publicly associate myself with the BSA. When and I believe the change to be inevitable the BSA amends its membership policy, I will be its foremost advocate. Eagle Scouts are told regularly that the responsibilities of the rank do not end with adulthood, and I do not intend to absolve myself of my duty. For my love of scouting, and per my duty as a lifelong scout, I intend to protest the policies of the national organization until they change. I encourage other people whose lives have been touched by scouting to do the same. Aaron Koenig is a columnist at The Dartmouth at Dartmouth College.Boy Scouts anti-gay policy abhorrentUWire Have you noticed how news outlets now include tweets as part of the news? Many newscasts now talk about celebrity Twitter accounts and any tweet that is outrageous enough to comment on. It seems as if a person cant get through a single news report on the TV or read an article in the paper without hearing about a recent tweet from so-and-so. Honestly, who cares? Better yet, why should I care? Twitter, like Facebook, is a great communica tion tool if used properly. But when mishandled, things can go terribly wrong. Some examples of out-ofline tweets can be seen with the recent London Olympics. With more than 150 million tweets about the Olympics posted during the 16 days of the games, Twitter was declared the winner in what some are calling the Social Olympics. There were about 80,000 Olympic tweets per minute published after Usain Bolt won the gold medal in the information given by Twitter in an article for Australian paper The Age. The tweets started with Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou, who tweeted a racist comment mocking African immigrants on her personal Twitter account. Papachristou was expelled from Greeces Olympic team for saying, With so many Africans in Greece, at least the mosquitoes of West Nile mosquitoes will be eat homemade food. Swiss soccer team player Michel Morganella was the second athlete to be kicked out of the 2012 Olympic Games after posting a racist and threatening tweet saying South Koreas athletes were retards and should burn themselves shortly after Switzer lands 2-1 loss to South Korea. When the French and textspeak tweet is translated into English, Morganella tweeted something along the lines of, I want to beat up all South Koreans. Bunch of mentally handicapped retards. Because of their need to blow off steam or show their racist colors to the rest of the world, it cost them big-time. Plus, from now on, whenever their name is brought up they are forever tied to that tweet. These types of postings have been happening on Twitter for quite some time and have been making headline news, along with negatively affecting those who use the social media tool in the wrong way. Back in 2010, Aussie swimmer Stephanie Rice tweeted suck on that faggots after Australia beat South Africa at rugby. In recent times, she has racy picture of herself wear ing a two-piece swimsuit that left little to the imagination. During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Twitter did not have as big of a role as it did in this years Olympics. There were more tweets in a single day than during the entire 2008 Beijing Games, Twitter reps wrote in a blog post. My favorite part about the aftermath of these rash and senseless tweets is the Im sorry tweet afterward. All three athletes above tweeted their apologies, with Rice apologizing to the public in a tearful news conference. Well, if you werent careless with your actions, you wouldnt have anything to pretend to be sorry for. They are not sorry for what they said; they are sorry they got slammed for the tweet. As always, the few ruin it for the rest of us, giving Twitter an image which teeter-totters between good and bad. The solution to the trouble the Olympic athletes got themselves into is to be more discreet, and it applies to the rest of us, too. Take an extra two seconds of your time to think twice about your next post. And if you decide that your mother would be disappointed in you if she saw it, give her and dont make the post. Maybe the solution is as simple as a short quote from Whenever Im about to do something, I think, Would an idiot do that? And if they would, I do not do that thing.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG McKenzie Barney was a key piece of UFs resurgent attack on Sunday, scoring one of three goals in a win against FIU. See story, page 16. Poll Question:Did Will Muschamp make the right call by naming Jeff Driskel the starting quarterback? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. MUSCHAMP CHOSE DRISKEL BECAUSE OF HIS MOBILITY. JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Will Muschamp didnt want to name a starting quarterback following Saturdays win against Bowling Green, but he decided to end the speculation on Monday by naming Jeff Driskel his starter. Its been a lifelong dream, Driskel said. Obviously to be the quarterback at a university like this is a big achievement, but Im just excited to really be able to take command of the offense. To really hone in on what I got to do and be ready to go to win in Texas A&M. Muschamp said the decision was not based solely on the quarterbacks play against Bowling Green but rather a complete evaluation of everything they had done since spring practices. While players and coaches maintained throughout spring and fall that Driskel and Jacoby Brissett were even in the quarterback competition, Muschamp said he does not plan to pull his starter as soon as something goes wrong. It will be Jeffs game to play, Muschamp said of Saturdays Southeastern Conference opener against Texas A&M. I told Jeff, I dont want you looking over your shoulder, but you need to play well. Even though Driskel wont be on a short leash, Muschamp said he has stressed to Brissett the importance of being able to go in at a moments notice, adding that Brissett is one play away from being the starter. Jacoby will still get reps, Muschamp said. Hell be repped at practice and certainly will be ready when called on. I just feel like we needed to get to the turns and reps and the snaps as we move forward. Driskel was at the helm for the entire second half against the Falcons after playing the 114 yards and a touchdown. Brissett played most of the second quarter, completing 3 of 5 passes for 31 yards in three drives. Although Muschamp exteams chances to win with either quarterback, he said Driskels ability to make plays running the ball factored into the decision. Against Bowling Green, Driskel carried the ball three times for 24 yards. Its nothing Jacoby didnt do, Muschamp said of his decision. (I) just feel like Jeff with the legs, gives us some different variables in our offense that can help us move forward. Driskel made the longest throw of his career when he connected with Frankie Hammond Jr. on a 50-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to extend the Gators lead to 10 points. Hammond also praised Driskels scrambling skills. He brings a lot to the table, Hammond said. Hes a versatile quarterback. Things break down in the pocket, he is able to stretch plays, and he can run the ball as well, and that is something derespect. When asked what areas Driskel could improve after his performance against the Falcons, Muschamp did not offer too many critiques.David Carr / Alligator StaffJeff Driskel takes a shotgun snap during Saturdays win against Bowling Green at Driskel named Floridas starterSEE DRISKEL, PAGE 15 GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer Mike Gillislee showed he has what it takes to be a workhorse in Saturdays season opener. Now he has to prove he can hold up through a 12game season. After Gillislee carried the ball 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns against Bowling Green, coach Will Muschamp said on Monday that he would like for a second option to emerge so UF can keep Gillislees touches at a manageable level. ried the ball at least 24 times per game last season. Freshman Matt Jones ran the ball three times for 17 yards on Saturday, while Omarius Hines had four carries for 14 yards and Mack Brown had four carries for 13 yards. As we move forward, Matt and Mack need to separate themselves in some form or fashion to continue to get [Gillislee] the touches we need for him to have in a game, Muschamp said. Dominique Easley admits he had a few butfering a left ACL tear against Florida game at defensive end, so the junior was understandably anxious. His fears grew momentarily when Gators looking for No. 2 RB FIRE JOE MORGAN Florida coach Will Muschamp named Jeff Driskel the starting quarterback on Monday, but that doesnt mean much. The Gators are runners. Muschamp made Floridas commitment to the ground game clear after Saturdays win against Bowling Green. We need to establish the run, Muschamp said. You cant talk about it. You got to be about it and you got to do it. We made the decision going into the game. Thats what were going to do. In their season opener, the Gators ran the ball with fervor. Florida racked up 42 carries compared to just 21 passing attempts. After Driskel opened the second quarter with a ran the ball on 10 straight plays. Mike Gillislee, the go-to workhorse in Muschamps running back stable, logged a team-high 24 carries for 148 yards on Saturday. No UF player carried the ball more than 23 times in a single game last season. However many times I have to get the ball, thats how many times I get the ball, Gillislee said. UF can thrive as a run-oriented offense. Though unproven, Gillislee is a talented back, and Matt Jones proved effective in a backup role. Even Mack Brown and Omarius Hines appeared serviceable, but how reliable each player will be over the course of a full season remains to be seen. Gillislee may be on pace to surpass his preseason predictions of 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2012, but he will not. And UF will win with ground game Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan SEE JOE, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15Poll ResultsIs Floridas quarterback rotation a good idea? 25% YES 75% NO147 total votes

We had the one naked (bootleg) on the goal line and had a chance to get the ball off, Muschamp said. We need to get that one off. We had an opportunity to convert that third down and didnt. Other than that, he took the ball to the right spots. He had two drops. Both could have been caught. I think he did some good things, as far as management of what were trying to do. As Driskel prepares to play at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, on Saturday, he doesnt expect to be fazed by the crowd of more than 80,000 fans. His experiences on the road last season have given him a good idea of what to expect. man season. Weve played in atmospheres like were going to see in Texas A&M.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 Florida 27, Bowling Green 14 With Bowling Green at Floridas 23-yard line and trailing by only 3 points, Marcus Roberson intercepted a Matt Schilz pass on the first play of the fourth quarter. Roberson returned the pick to the UF 47, killing Bowling Greens momentum and setting up UFs final touchdown. Marcus Roberson Gillislee was a workhorse for the Gators on Saturday, rushing 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns. His average of 6.2 yards per UFs No. 1 back dwarfed the four other backs combined 3.8 yards per carry. After dropping a pair of passes early in the game, Hammond bounced back to score a 50-yard touchdown Saturdays longest play from scrimmage. with three catches for 62 yards. SWAMP STUDS Frankie Hammond Jr. WR 14Florida committed 14 penalties for 106 yards on fouls, three offsides, three false starts, three delays of games and a substitution infraction. KEY STAT Mike Gillislee RB TURNING POINT DB UF and Bowling Green were tied midway through the third quarter when punter Brian Schmiedebuschs kick traveled only 10 yards, setting UF up at the Bowling Green 18-yard line. Caleb Sturgis field goal gave UF the lead four plays later. THREE KEY PLAYS Mike Gillislee 3 Marcus Roberson 2 Frankie Hammond Jr. 1 STANDINGS Roberson showed no ill effects from last seasons serious neck injury, breaking up three passes and turnover of the season with play of the fourth quarter. the game tied at seven, Mike Gillislee needed only one play to give UF the lead. Gillislee started left, cut back right and bounced outside before cutting past a Bowling Green safety and sprinting 38 yards for the score. Frankie Hammond Jr. gave UFs slow, methodical offense a spark early in the fourth quarter, when he caught Driskels pass on a curl route, broke a tackle and then split three Bowling Green defenders to reach the endzone. The score stretched UFs lead to a comfortable 10 points. 1 2 3 4 Final Bowling Green Florida 14 7 0 27 0 14 7 3 0 10 SCORE BY QUARTERSJackie Joiner / Alligator Staff thats OK. Floridas running backs do this season. They just have to do enough to get the offense moving. Bowling Green is a Mid-Amer ican Conference squad. The Falrushing defense last year. Slowing down a Southeastern Confer ence opponent at all would have been an accomplishment for those guys. Saturdays game was merely a running backs. But its early. As Floridas inexperienced group gains experience and in-game reps, they will only continue to improve. The departures of Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey are a blessing in disguise for the Gators. Finally, UF can return to a regular north-south running game instead of accommodating speedsters who are useless running between the tackles on a regular basis. Sure, trying to ram it down the throats of teams like LSU, Georgia and South Carolina may seem like a misguided strategy. But its the way things are done in the SEC. The good teams can pound the rock, and the bad teams cannot. When December rolls around, players recognized in New York as Brown will still be known primar ily as the Texas coach, Jones will be the fourth-most popular last name in the United States and Hines will be ketchup. But together, this group of guys will be the reason the UF offense is respectable. Naming a starting quarterback is good news for Florida. But if the Gators do anything of note this season, it will be because they are runners. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

He notched the teams only sack in the 27-14 win and received positive reviews from Muschamp on Monday. I played alright, Easley said. I dont want to say it was my best game. Injury updates: Offensive tackle Matt Patchan is expected to miss Saturdays game against Texas A&M with a pectoral injury, but Muschamp is encouraged by his progress. Im hoping for Tennessee, but Im not sure of that, either, Muschamp said. Hes doing everything he can do to get back. I know that rehab is going well, and everything has been very positive on that end. Trainers projected Patchans recovery time at four weeks. Muschamp said the healing process is currently ahead of schedule, prompting the team to expect an earlier return. seen action in only 27 games due to a variety of medical issues. I know Matts frustrated, Muschamp said. Im frustrated for him, because hes worked extremely hard. He had a really good offseason, so I hope its not that much longer. We need to get him back.

FLORIDA LAUNCHED A SEASON-HIGH 24 SHOTS IN SUNDAYS 3-0 WIN. ADAM LICHTENSTEIN Alligator Writer After facing two in-state rivals early in the season and scoring only one goal, Floridas offense came alive on Sunday against Florida International, scoring three goals on 24 shots. Weve come a long way since the last time we played [at home], coach Becky Burleigh said. I was really, really pleased with everything tonight in terms of our ability to generate goal-scoring chances. The Gators 24 shots, 10 of which were on goal, were a season-high, doubling their previous best of 12 against Florida State on Friday. Although Florida tied its season-high goal total, the large number of shots displayed the Gators lack Thats the No. 1 thing that the coaches said when we came off after the game is, Great game, but if we ferent game, redshirt senior McKenzie Barney said. Barney scored the second goal against FIU. Florida failed to convert several chances on Sunday. Near the end of the game, Barney got a one-onone opportunity against FIU goalkeeper Kaitlyn Savage, but her shot rolled past the post, missing a goal by a couple of feet. a ball in front of the net and sophomore Annie Speese headed it, but the ball sailed over the net. [Leon] gave some great balls that should have been assists, Burleigh said. They were perfectly on the end of. sophomore Havana Solaun. Solaun took four shots; three were on goal and two resulted in scores. we probably wanted to, but we did what we need to, Solaun said. Solaun nearly tied the game against FSU on Friday. Solaun scored on goalkeeper Kelsey Wys early in the second half, but the referee ruled her offsides. Another player who saw a lot of action was sophof the year when she fed the ball to Solaun for the Gators opening goal. said. She served some great balls in the box. We really wanted to come out and show that come out with a win. Gators attack finding its groove JONATHAN CZUPRYN Alligator Writer Mary Wise has no doubt that her team can attack the ball. But the Gators defense is full of question marks. This past weekend, No. 15 Florida traveled to University Park, Pa., to compete in the Nike Big Four Classic, where losses to No. 4 Texas and No. 8 Stanford revealed the teams weaknesses. The Gators digging in the back cerns following the tournament and the exhibition match against the Slovenian Junior National Team on Monday. After Saturdays match against the Cardinal, Wise said her personnel didnt match up with those top-10 teams, and her players will have to develop those skills as the year progresses. Were not there yet, Wise said. We scored enough points to win those, we blocked enough balls, we had enough faces, we had enough scoring. Florida allowed season-high hitting percentages of .313 and .331 against Texas and Stanford. Although the Gators offense kept pace matches, Wise is still counting on the two primary defensive specialists, Taylor Unroe and Madison Monserez, to make Florida a balanced squad. Both Unroe and Monserez said the issue is not skill or ability but chemistry and focus. Sometimes its like a disconnect, Unroe said. Well hesitate for a ball, and I think get to the ball, we can compete with anybody. Even with Kelly Murphy and Kristy Jaeckel, who combined for 34 percent of Floridas digs last year, Florida still ranked 259th out of 321 NCAA teams with 13.59 digs per set. This year, the Gators have only 13.4 digs per set. We have the ability, Monserez said. We kind of were a little more laid back and, Well get the next one, kind of thing. I think in the be, We need it now, we need this ery point is important. Florida looking for better defense from back-row playersUnroe Digs total lower than last seasons
