JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Will Muschamp called his team soft last November. Throughout the 2011 season, close games. We werent tough enough, Muschamp said. In 2012, consecutive second-half rallies on the road against Texas A&M and Tennessee have proven one thing Florida is a changed team. Nobody in that locker room thought for a second that we were out of that game, Jeff Driskel said. We know that were going to make big halftime adjustments and win the game in the second half. UF has outscored opponents 50-13 in the second half this season. In the fourth quarter, Florida holds a 27-0 advantage. Thats something our kids have bought into, Muschamp said. Were going to win the fourth quarter. They believe that. They have a strong belief. We grew up a lot last year. The Gators won the fourth quarter against the Volunteers, but they got started on their comeback before the third quarter expired. During Saturdays 37-20 victory against No. 23 Tennessee (2-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., No. 18 Florida (3-0, 2-0 SEC) scored 24 unanswered points Trey Burton got the ball rolling by the right sideline to score the game-tying touchdown with 3:15 to play in the third quarter. Earlier, Burton scored on a 14yard rush up the left sideline. Both plays came in the wildcat formation, with Andre Debose running away from Burtons intended path on misdirection shifts. just the opposite side, Burton said of his game-tying touchdown run. They have to respect Deboses hand sweep. They overplayed it again for the second time. And Hunter (Joyer) came and pinned the linebacker, and I saw a hole and I ran. The Venice natives career-long touchdown run spurred 302 yards of minutes and 27 seconds. In all, UF tallied 555 yards against UT.SEE MUSCHAMP, PAGE 14 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterIt may be 2012, but Sunday marked the start of 5773 as well. About 150 Jewish students donning orange and blue yarmulke gathered for a candle lighting ceremony to start off Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, at UF Hillel.

Stern said there are about 8,500 Jewish students at UF. The candle lighting ceremony Sunday night at the Norman H. Lipoff Hall lobby was led by campus Rabbi Gail Swedroe. Before she began the blessing of the candles, Swedroe asked students to think about what light they wanted to bring into the new year.Students gather at UF Hillel to bring in a new year SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe UF Supreme Court met Friday and ruled that two referendums passed the necessary technical procedures to be placed on the October elections ballot. However, only one of them was approved to be on the ballot. Earlier this semester, the court had approved both referendums one regarding newspaper racks and the other about a name change for the Reitz Union. At that point, the authors needed to gather 500 signatures and re-submit On Friday, the court approved the referendum asking students whether or not they think UF should move forward with forcing publications to be distributed out of university-owned racks. The decision on the referendum asking students if they would want to rename the Reitz Union was postponed. A former Supervisor of Elections and current law student, Ariana Alfonso, addressed the court about the Reitz Union referendum. She took issue with the way the referendums author, Sen. Ford Dwyer, went about passing it. He chose to get 500 signatures instead of It could potentially be a loophole if the court does not uphold its inherent power of review, Alfonso said after the hearing.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 Chris Hwang / AlligatorMcDonalds announced Wednesday it will start to include calorie information on its menus. A Big Mac is 550 calories, and a 10-piece McNuggets is 470 calories, according to the McDonalds website. Sept. 18, 1962: UF Fall registration hits an all-time high of 13,783 students, an increase of 149 students from the year before. Only 4,084 women are registered, compared to 9,699 men. The greatest percentage of men are in the College of Engineering, in which there are 1,190 men and nine women. Sept. 19, 1985: Only 31 students can access UF computer systems directly from their residence hall Fletchers Island and Fletcher library have the wiring for access. UF Housing director James Grimm said students had been complaining about long lines at computer centers, like the one in Weil Hall. It is posnetwork in most if not all of the dorms, said Mark Hale, director of the Center for Instructions and Research Computing Activities. Sept. 17, 1993: UF coach Steve Spurrier hints that redshirt freshman quarterback Danny Wuerffel will start Saturdays Southeastern Conference game against Tennessee at Florida Field instead of junior Terry Dean. Some suggest the annual game between Florida and Tennessee ranks among the more traditional SEC rivalries. Hopefully, its kind of our turn this year, but I dont think its going to be a blowout, said UF senior guard Jim Watson. Sept. 20, 2002: The search continues for the winner of a $10 million jackpot lottery ticket that was sold at a Gainesville food store. Sprint Food Store, at 9303 NW 39th Ave., sold the only winning ticket. Sam Oliver, lottery director of communications, said the odds of winning this jackpot were about one in 23,000,000. JENNA LYONS HEALTHIER OPTIONS WILL BE ADDED TO THE MENU IN 2013. SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterJessica Nascimento went to McDonalds for her favorite frappe, but she soon realized it would cost her more than she expected. McDonalds Corp. announced Wednesday it will begin to include calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide. Though Nascimento still got the frappe, she said she was surprised by the numbers on other menu items. People could see 1,000 calories and get turned off, the 19-year-old telecommunication junior said. The calorie information is part of a larger nutrition-geared initiative announced by McDonalds in July 2011. McDonalds also published a nutrition progress report and added changes to the 2013 menu that will include food groups recommended by the Department of Agriculture. I think McDonalds is doing it, because they have really committed themselves to nutrition, said Gainesville McDonalds spokeswoman Katelea Burkhart. We changed the Happy Meal to include apple slices, and this is just another step in educating the customers. Bobbi Langkamp-Henken, a UF food science and human nutrition professor, said it can be daunting to educate the public about nutrition. Everyone underestimates how many calories you require each day, she said. If you dont know how many calories you need, how do you interpret the calorie board? However, Langkamp-Henken said she is glad that the fast-food chain is taking steps to be health conscious. Im interested in how many calories are in each thing so I can make an informed decision, she said. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@alligator.org.McDonalds adds calorie counts to menu

The kid who would always tell the teacher if he or she caught you chewing gum or not sharing the Slinky even if youd been waiting for, like, 20 minutes for your turn? Seriously, what a doo-doo head. This kid knew the rules and wanted to make sure everybody followed them, a believer in a school-sanctioned system of justice. Everybody hated that kid, and it was only a matter of time before he pissed off the oversized giant in your class and subsequently got taught the lesson, Snitches get stitches. Turns out he was only following the wrong set of rules. I was reminded of this for two reasons: First, the tattletale of my kindergarten class added me on Facebook recently. I was the weird kid in my class who kept to myself and thankfully never really got picked on for it, probably because I was really weird but I still knew enough to ostracize the tattletale. That probably not going to approve it. Second, Ive either been in or observed a lot of situations as of late that have tested someones loyalty, and its been making me stress eat like a motherlover. Its become such a problem that a co-worker of mine saw me guzzling down a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts alone in my car with Bad Romance blasting in the background and felt prompted to ask if I was OK. I was dressed in my typical paint-stained shirt and pajama bottoms and I-dont-need-no-man slippers. There was no sugarcoating the situation. has happened to me. I started to ponder the sorts of situations that got me sons on Derrida and deconstructing the binomial oppositions inherent to Western thought. An example of this concept is Goldilocks and the Three Bears; Western thought presents the porridge as too hot or too cold, and deconstruction tries to elucidate the many shades of just right. The concept I constantly grappled with was loyalty. But the opposition to be faced here wasnt disloyalty it was honesty. I have a tendency to remain loyal to organizations and people who, at one point or another, require me to be dishonest with myself. And I externalize the resultIts like trying to drive a car that wont start. The key is in the ignition, and the air conditioning the car, youre not able to go where you need to go. I make this analogy because this was the situation I found myself in at the Krispy Kreme parking lot that fateful evening. Take Watergate, for example. Quite a few members of the Committee for the ReElection of the President loved Nixon and supported his ideals, but they knew that quite a few committee activities were wrong. Their loyalty to Nixon became pitted against their desire to be forthcoming about CREEPs ethics, and quite a few of them chose to remain silent on the issue. This problem isnt one that gets easier to handle with age. Right now, a lot of students are starting to feel loyal to their courses of study, their professors who like them, their extracurriculars, their employers and, soon enough, their spouses. Figuring out how to balance your loyalties with honesty will only become more of a challenge. Chip Skambis is a telecommunication senior at UF. His column appears on Mondays.Rick Santorum doesnt want us on his side neither as journalists nor as college students. Were too smart for him. We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country, Santorum said during his speech at the Values Voter Summit this weekend. We will never have the elite smart people on our side, because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. So our colleges and universities, theyre not going to be on our side. Would he prefer a media unit that was too dumb to report the truth? Because, believe us, its a lot harder to be truthful than it is to just make stuff up. Reporters and journalists try their damndest to be fair, to report honest facts and to present all sides of a story not just both sides. We dont believe that we have the power to tell you, the reader, what to do. Its our job to give you the facts and then let you come up with your own opinions and thoughts. Thats how it works. Sorry, Santorum, if the truth sometimes sucks from your point of view. That also goes for Michele Bachmann, another speaker at Values Voter Summit 2012. Before I start, I just want to say a word about this concept that youve heard about called the war on women, the so-called war on women, Bachmann said on Friday. And I just want to say I think it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as Bill Clintons arithmetic, she said, referring to Clintons speech at the Democratic National Convention. Secondly, the war on women is a whole other issue. She wants to dismiss it as if its something thats not happening, that women should feel silly for feeling slighted in any sense by members of, mostly, the Republican Party. She went on to talk about the current violent riots and protests across the world. There is a very real war that is going on across the world, and thats what I want to take my few moments together that we have this morning, Bachmann said. I sit on the Intelligence is a very real issue. Do you know what else is a very real issue? The fact that its the same woman who said things like this: The Muslim Brotherhood has been found to be an unindicted co-conspirator on terrorism cases and yet it appears that there are individuals who are associated with the Muslim Brother hood who have positions, very sensitive positions, in our Department of Justice, our Department of Homeland Security, potentially even in the National Intelligence Agency. She led what some have called an Islamophobic witchhunt, so we think its safe to say that we dont want her in charge of anything, let alone in charge of intelligence. Maybe you disagree with journalists and what they have to to say. Just realize that we report the facts, whether you like what those facts are or not.Sorry, not sorry Speakers threatened by the truthErin Jester EDITOR Sarah Kinonen MANAGING EDITOR Sami Main OPINIONS EDITOR Chip Skambisopinions@alligator.org

Letters to the Editor MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I was pleased to see your coverage of the Florida Modern Slavery Museum (Traveling slavery museum shows abuse of farmworkers). The shock expressed by visitors about the existence of slavery is far from uncommon. While most of us are taught about past slavery and the Civil War in our high school history classes, we are not told it exists as an illegal market today. Kevin Bales, professor of contemporary slavery at the University of Hull, estimates there are 27 million people in slavery today, more than ever before in to poorer nations; human rights groups esinto the United States annually and forced to work in labor or prostitution. I strongly encourage UF students to donate to charities and spread the word so that together, we can end this evil institution in our lifetimes. Christopher Barton president of Gators for Free the Slaves and UF political science senior Michael Scott Davidson was correct in expressing skepticism about AdderRx. Readers of the Alligator should remember to apply a similar skeptical eye to any and all dietary supplements such as echinacea, colloidal silver, kava, yohimbine, etc. These products are permitted to be sold under a U.S. law called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act; however, none of these products are required health claims. Products may contain contaminants because they are not required to demonstrate quality control during manufacturing. Products may contain banned substances or legal but undisclosed drugs such as Viagra in all-natural male enhancements. David Winchester, M.D. Assistant Professor of Medicine UF Divison of Cardiology I am an immigrant from a country that doesnt always protect the rights of individuals. One of the many things that I have come to appreciate over the years is freedom of speech and press. It is such a fundamental part of our culture and society that many of us dont appreciate it we tend to take it for granted. If you want to see how integral free speech is here at UF, just walk around Turlington Plaza. People from all walks of life advertise there for their events, causes and issues. Publications like The Fine Print, the Odyssey and the Alligator are distributed there freely, providing entertainment and important information to the Student Body. What if all of that was taken away? What if your elected representatives thought otherwise and did nothing to protect those rights? Take a moment to think about it. This past Summer Semester, the Student Senate failed to protect your right to information and press. Students Party senators tried their best to keep the majority from the Unite Party (most of whom are now members of the new Swamp Party) from passing an election code revision that limits election campaigning to a week. The campaign revisions, championed by Christina Bonarrigo and other leaders of the Swamp Party, were so far-reaching that any post on Facebook in support of a If I were to tell you to vote for my party, I would risk to the people who made this new rule. To make things even worse, the same Swamp Party senators also voted against a resolution that asked the UF administration to halt their efforts at removing independently owned newspaper racks from campus most are owned by The Independent Florida Alligator and have been around for more than three decades. To add insult to injury, the administration is making all publications sign a licensing agreement that effectively leaves their continued presence on campus at the mercy of the university. To say this threatens editorial independence would be a major understatement. All of this is a reaction to last Springs historic election. In February, we saw the highest voter turnout ever in a UF election of this kind, and the Alligator rightly reported on an effort involving a current Swamp Party senator to dispose of copies of the newspaper on the day it reported Coach Muschamps endorsement of the Students Party. Having nearly lost power, Bonarrigo and friends are desperate to crush all opposition and suppress any dissenting voices. The fact that the Unite Party has been mysteriously replaced by the Swamp Party says all you need to know about the state of its reputation. Because of the new campaign laws, Im not even sure if Im allowed to tell you about a referendum question relating to the Alligator racks or even when you can vote on the matter. Thats how oppressive these new rules are. But if, hypothetically, you happen to hear of an upcoming Student Government election where you have a chance to stand up for freedom of expression, I certainly hope youll take the chance to do so. Umair Asghar is an engineering senator and a mechanical and aerospace engineering junior at UF. Freedom of speech could be hindered by political actions Guest columnOn Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu publicly denounced President Barack Obama for failing to draw clear red lines around Irans nuclear program and rebuked the United States moral right to hold Israel back from independent military action. This statement blatantly ignores the strategic implications of creating such thresholds and appears timed to back the president into a foreign policy corner leading up to Election Day. Netanyahus searing criticism of Obama is unreasonable at best and shameless politicking at worst. From a strategic standpoint, it makes very little sense for the U.S. to bind itself to military action based on the levels of uranium enrichment achieved by Irans nuclear endeavors. Quite simply, creating an enrichment boundary beyond which a military strike is guaranteed would commit American forces to an assault whose probability of long-term effectiveness is dubious at best. Though a report last month from the International Atomic Energy Agency concluded that Iran has enough partially enraeli physical chemistry professor Uzi Even suspect that Iran has succeeded in covertly producing enough bomb-quality fuel to perform a test explosion in secret. If Iran is already nuclear, which Tehran has predictably denied, then the designation of an unacceptable level of uranium enrichment is essentially irrelevant. At the same time, the risks of allowing Iran to obtain a weapon should not be discounted. Such a development would almost certainly embolden Iran in its support of Syria, Hezbollah and other undesirables in the Middle East while dramatically increasing the chances for war either conventional or nuclear in the region and perhaps enabling greater nuclear proliferation, which would all be spectacular foreign policy failures for the United States. However, there lies a silver lining in the distinct unlikelihood of an Iranian nuclear strike. From both practical and logistical perspectives, Iran has little reason and almost certainly lacks the technical skill to launch an effective warhead. Tehran realizes that American and Israel second-strike capabilities, particularly when combined, could wipe Iran off the map within minutes of an initial Iranian attack. Irans decision to pursue uranium rather than plutoniumbased enrichment ensures that any bomb it could produce in the near future would be far too heavy to be borne any appreciable distance by its existing ballistic missiles. All told, Obama has been correct in remarking that the United States and Israel have time and space to reach a negotiated solution with Iran on its nuclear aspirations the Iranians are still months and years away from being a credible nuclear threat. Cold War-style containment may become a necessary option down the road, but today, continued sanctions and pressure represent the most sustainable and least confrontational plan. Then why the pointed indictment of Obamas policies from Netanyahu? There are evident political motivations in his attempt to elicit concessions from an American leader up for reelection in less than two months who cannot afford to be called soft on Iran or unsupportive of Israel. Brinkmanship on Iran may have worked when the presidents campaign was struggling and both Netanyahu and Republicans could take Obama to task for failing to lead on this issue. But this sort of hardball is no longer effective Obama has opened up a six-point lead on opponent Mitt Romney and is now the American peoples preferred handler of for eign policy, according to two ABC News polls. Netanyahu would do well to tread more carefully around his countrys most important security ally rather than treating the United States as a political tool.

They will be held the second Friday of every month and promote cooperation. own organizations but not as a whole, he said.Unity Fridays begin with step show JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterAs Latin music blared, people shook and dipped their hips with the beat. People danced, savored dishes such as empanadas and celebrated the spirit of the Hispanic culture at the 11th annual Downtown Latino Festival on Saturday at Bo Diddley Community Plaza. About 2,000 people attended the festival, according to David Ruiz, director of the festival. The event highlights Hispanic Heritage Month, which began Saturday and ends Oct. 15. The events important, because there is not a lot of Latino events at this magnitude, he said. Instructors did Zumba routines, encouraging children and young adults to follow along. A conga line of about 30 people broke out as the night went on. Ruiz, who has been the event director for the past four years, said he wants the festival to show diversity in the community. Its great to see the community supportive of the event, he said. David Armas, a 21-year-old UF advertising senior and member of the Hispanic Student Association, said the event was not quite as busy as other years, but he was excited to grab traditional Hispanic food. UF telecommunication senior Alex de Armas, 21, said she came to the festival with her friend to enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Anywhere we can get together with other Hispanics is great, de Armas said.Downtown festival celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterUF students might sound like Founding Fathers to people passing Library West today. Volunteers will read sections of the U.S. Constitution at noon for the 225th anniversary of its signing. The event, UF Reads the Constitution, is sponsored by the Smathers Libraries. About 500 free Constitution handouts will be available, said International Documents librarian Chelsea Dinsmore. We would like to read through the Constitution, but if a discussion starts, we are not going to stop it as long as it remains civil, she said. Its important that political candidates platforms are coherent with the general interpretation of the Constitution, said Prashant Kansakar, a 26-yearold industrial and systems engineering graduate student. Our presidents job is to defend the Constitution, he said. The majority of voters dont vote on that basis, but I think theoretically, in the ideal world, it should be that way.Students read Constitution to celebrate its anniversarySupreme Court disagreed on ability to rule on constitutionalityOn Sunday, Dwyer said some people believe he used backdoor avenues to get his referendum passed. But other senators have used the same method of getting a referendum on the ballot, including Sen. Dave Bradshaw, the author of the racks referendum. Its not about procedure, its about the Hawkins issue, Dwyer said. Dwyer proposed changing the name of the union to the Virgil Hawkins Student Union after an African-American man who was denied entrance to UF in 1949 due to his race. After the hearing, Chief Justice Matt Michel said the court has not yet formed an opinion on whether or not it is appropriate for a senator to gather signatures instead of passing a The court also ruled it didnt have the ability to interpret state and federal constitutions. Bradshaw petitioned the court on whether it had the ability to rule on constitutionality, referencing the possible restriction of free speech as it applies to the code stating that campaign activities begin on the and ends immediately after day of elections. Associate Justice Tim Mason was the sole dissenting voice on the constitutionality ruling. He said the courts jurisdiction was limited to the statutes of UF, but in ruling so, the court cannot disregard broader rules. However, the court stated that the code that Bradshaw petitioned was not vague. Im disappointed in particular in regard to its inability to rule on constitutional issues, Bradshaw said.

Its a great opportunity to make new resolutions to make things better. A few students held tealight candles while two larger rabbi, joined Hillel in July. Its always exciting being in a new community for the After the ceremony, students separated into three services. Hillel held Reform, Conservative and traditional services to cater to every denomination. A meal followed the service at 9 p.m. The Reform Jewish service was the largest of the three services. Rabbi Melissa Zalkin Stollman, a UF graduate, traveled from New York to Gainesville to help with the service. The service, with a congregation of about 100, was held in the dining hall decorated with white lights strung across the ceiling. Keith Dvorchik, CEO and executive director of Hillel, said he was happy to see students excited about the holiday. Its one of those times when students connect, even if theyre busy, Dvorchik said.

MICHELLE PLITNIKASAlligator Contributing WriterBells attached to dancers ankles jingled quietly as the lights dimmed in the Reitz Union Ballroom on Saturday night. Roughly 850 people hushed in excitement as Praharsha 2012 kicked off its seventh year. The annual cultural fest is meant to showcase the best of Indian culture: its dancing, music and food. In Sanskrit, praharsha means extreme happiness. Nalini Kumar, a 24-year-old electrical engineering Ph.D. student, has organized Praharsha for the last two years. Its more about getting everyone together, she said. Its the beginning of Fall, so new students come in, and we want to get them together and let them enjoy some Bollywood music. Praharsha is put on by Gators for Asha and UF Student Government. Gators for Asha is UFs chapter organization with programs in var ious parts of India. The main goal of Asha for Education is to provide education to underprivileged and oppressed children in India. Preparations for the event start ery year, said 26-year-old chemical engineering graduate student Lokendra Bengani, co-president of Gators for Asha. After a few moments of silent darkness in the Grand Ballroom, enthusiastic emcees entered and, illuminated by a spotlight, hyped up the crowd.

At the end of the show, the Desi Gators dance group lined up on the edge of the stage as a popular Indian song started to play. The student-heavy crowd screamed and clapped its hands. played, the dance group jumped from the stage and ran into the cheering crowd. After the performances, the Indian dishes including vegetable curry, raita and pulao. Event organizers said all of the food was vegetarian. The smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander wafted together as people walked around trying dishes. The walls were decorated with traditional Indian garb: colorful ghagra cholis, saris and lehengas. Event organizers chose the name praharsha because they wanted to exemplify the joy that goes into all aspects of the yearly event. Shweta Bhagat, a 23-year-old UF graduate student studying information systems and operations management, and one of the emcees, said all of the volunteers are essential to Ashas events. Its fun to be around lively and fresh people, she said.

Poll Question Vote online at alligatorSports.org.David Carr / Alligator StaffTrey Burton sprints 80 yards to the end zone for UFs second touchdown in its 37-20 victory against Tennessee on Saturday at Neyland Stadium. ADAM PINCUS KNOXVILLE, Tenn. With the Gators down a touchdown and looking for a spark, coach Will Muschamp outsmarted himself and put his team in a bind. Then Trey Burton came to the rescue. After the defense forced a three-and-out following a failed fake punt at its own 45, Florida started the next drive with Trey Burton under center and quarterback Jeff Driskel lined up at wide receiver. Speed took over the game for Florida. Very resilient for our kids, Muschamp said. They overcome our coaching a lot and I think in that situation they certainly did. That was a huge turning point. Burton took the direct snap and beat the Volunteers defense to the outside. A stiff-arm down career-long 80-yard touchdown run. I knew he was fast. I didnt know he had that kind of speed, Driskel said. case. I was running from the other sideline, but I couldnt quite get there. That was awesome. That was a huge play for us. Until that point, Florida had allowed 319 yards of offense, including a 12 play, 81-yard touchdown drive that put Tennessee ahead 20-13. On the next UT possession following Burtons touchdown, Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray pressured quarterback Tyler Bray into an interception to safety Matt Elam. Florida responded with 17 unanswered points. The Volunteers had not ton ran the read-option. Burton went untouched for a down. It was a shock, Volunteers coach Derek Dooley said. Nobody recognized it. We werent play. I dont know what else to say. Tennessee linebacker Herman Lathers added: Its more of the outside guys and the safeties. It get to all of the checks that we takes. Whatever the problem, Tennessee didnt have an answer three carries for 91 yards and two touchdowns. He added 38 receiving yards. We felt like we had the counter on the backside and it was blocked beautifully, Muschamp said. They overpursued the speed sweep. Trey cut it back outside and outran them. Team effort with rushing attack: In front of 102,455 fans and a Volunteers defense expecting the run, the Gators were without their top offensive weapon. Mike Gillislee was standing on the sidelines with his helmet at his side.Burtons long score proves key KATIE AGOSTIN While Kentucky had a week to prepare for Florida, the Gators only had one day to prepare for the Wildcats. UFs freshmen had to learn a new playing on the road for only the second time. But outside hitters Ziva Recek and Gabby Mallette rose to the occasion. These players matured in front of our eyes, coach Mary Wise said. To come in to Memorial Coliseum with as talented a team as Kentucky is, knowing that they had a week to prepare for us, I really wondered, Could we do it in a day? The game plan that Dave (Boos) had, I knew it was awesome. The issue was we had to put so much time in the Arkansas preparation, could we do it with a lot more video than time on the court? Offensively, Recek and Mallette combined for only 10 kills, but defensively the two tallied 7 digs and 4 blocks as they helped No. 13 Florida (8-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) sweep No. 24 Kentucky (6-5, 0-1 SEC) in a 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-18) victory for Nov. 11, 2007. Theyre not even a month into them through it and walking them through every scenario because we couldnt practice it, Wise said. Weve had some freshman that you could talk for days, and they wouldnt be able to catch on mentally. Daves worked with Ziva and Gabby, and those two did not look like freshman defensively at all. The growth of the freshmen wasnt the only factor that helped the Gators grab their second straight win of their Mature freshmen spark win JURNY DUTY KNOXVILLE, Tenn. When Will Muschamp named Jeff Driskel his starting quarterback the Monday after Floridas seasonopening 27-14 win over Bowling Green, his reasoning for doing so seemed obvious. The Gators offense was going to be predicated on running the football. Running back Mike Gillislee had a career-best performance against the Falcons, running for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. With Gillislee blossoming into a workhorse needed a quarterback to manage the game. avoiding risks whenever possible. Conversely, Jacoby Brissett had proven to be more of a gunThus, it made sense that Muschamp would select Driskel to be his game manager. On Saturday, Driskel proved he is much more than that. In a 37-20 win against Tennessee, the sophomore completed 14 of his 20 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran the ball eight times for 81 yards. What was more impressive than his raw numbers was the way he accumulated capacity Neyland Stadium. His 23-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Reed in the third quarter that gave the Gators a 2720 lead was one of multiple instances in which Driskel stood strong in the pocket, stepped up, completed a pass and took a hit. When the pocket wasnt there, he used his legs to turn nothing into something, rather than running out of bounds for a loss, as he did against Texas A&M on multiple occasions. A perfect example of Driskels progress in those scrambling situations came late in the second quarter with the Gators trailing, 14-7. yard line, Driskel was immediately pressured up the middle but avoided a sack by scrambling to his right. As he neared the sideline, he threw a perfectly placed ball to wide receiver down.

The sophomore showed pinpoint accuracy and poise under pressure, avoiding a sack one week after taking eight against Texas A&M. After the Gators got the ball at their own 20-yard line trailing by seven late in the third quarter, Trey Burton took a snap in the wildcat formation and sprinted through a hole and down the right sideline for an 80-yard touchdown to level the score. Florida never trailed from there. 336Florida rushed for 336 yards on Saturday, its highest total against Tennessee since 1977, when it had 370.
