ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer With each carry, Mike Gillislee runs farther away from the dangers of DeLand. His cousin Kentrell Gillislee, meanwhile, deals with the perils of their hometown every day. While Mike leads the Southeastern Conference in rushing, Kentrell is working at Captain Ds Seafood Restaurant. I have a part-time job, but thats not what it is around here, Kentrell said. I cant stand the area. It gets hard. If you dont get a scholarship to play football, you have to be an A+ student to get up out of here. Other than that, theres people around here that sell dope and shoot. Its not the right place for anybody. An accusation of lewd battery in 2009 ruined Kentrells shot at a Division I football scholarship. After receiving interest from Central Florida, Florida International and Illinois, he settled on a football scholarship to Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, but stayed for just one year. The cousins, both 21 years old, played together at DeLand High. Football has always been part of their bond, back to the days when they would do barefoot imitations of Emmitt Smith in the middle of South Clara Avenue during their childhood. Alfred Smith coached at DeLand from 20022012 and has seen the development of the cousThere was something different about him as a freshman. Football was Mikes big ticket, and he knew it from a young age, Smith said. That kid wanted to get strong, Smith said. He would come into the weight room and hed bust his butt. He wouldnt be going in there laughing and playing with the other kids. He was repping out, waiting and recovering, and went right back to work. Smith served as offensive coordinator when the Bulldogs. Now hes the head coach at Crescent City High. When kids come out of that area (DeLand) and do good for themselves, that whole city supports them, Smith said. They know what type of area that is. Last year, Kentrells 16-year-old cousin, Calvin Nealy Jr., died from the bullet of another teenagers gun. Nealy was the second young adult from DeLand shot between March 20 and April 2 of 2011. Through it all, Mike found his way to Gainesville, where hes running with more than just the Gators in mind. Hes trying to do this not only for himself, but for his whole city, Smith said. Hes got a lot of friends he left behind still doing wrong whose only hope is him. fourth game of his senior season at Florida with the Gators hopes for 2012 largely on his shoulders. To this point, he hasnt disappointed. Through three games, Gillislee has rushed for 346 yards and scored four touchdowns. His yardage total is the highest for any Florida rushCiatrick Fason gained 396 yards in 2004. Fason was Floridas last 1,000 yard rusher. Gillislees success has been a long time coming for the senior who arrived at Florida as the lone running back in Urban Meyers 2009 recruiting class. During the last three seasons, Gillislee took a back seat to speedsters Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps. Injuries also kept Gillislee on the sidelines last season. He suffered a sprained ankle against LSU on Oct. 8, which limited the physical runners carries the rest of the way. Prior to this seasons opener against Bowling Green, when he ran the football 24 times, Gillislee hadnt received more than 11 carries in a game. Although he led the Gators with a 5.9 yards tempts well behind Demps 98 and Raineys 171. He was also used mostly in garbage time, with only two of his 56 attempts coming in the second half with either team down one score or less. Although the Gators experienced trouble running between the tackles last season, Gillislee did not see as much playing time as his high school coordinator felt he should have. I used to give him the ball 30 times a game, Smith said. Heck yeah, I wanted him to have more playing time, because I knew what he had in him. last season. Against No. 1 LSU, Gillislee led the Gators with 56 yards. He had the talent, but his offense. Last year we had those two little fast guys that were kind of the same player, so that minimized his touches, Weis said. A struggling Florida offensive line didnt help Gillislee, either. We didnt block as well as were blocking right now, Gators coach Will Muschamp said. Not taking anything away from Mike, because hes running really well, but were a little differently equipped in the running game than we were a year ago. Smith made sure his former player stayed focused, even with the public clamoring for Gillislee to get in the game. Fans chimed in on Twitter with #freegilly hashtags and messages pleading for him to touch the football, which still make appearances during Gators game days in 2012. I kept in touch with him, because I knew it was tough on him, Smith said. He knew he could do it and he knew a lot of people knew he could do it. It seemed like he just wasnt getting the chance. The only thing I was doing was telling him to be patient. High school teammates took notice of how the former four-star recruit handled the lack of playing time. He had to wait his turn, former DeLand wouldve transferred, but Mike had his mind on the goal and took whatever it took to get there. With touches rare, Gillislee worked on the at Florida. Hes a guy that never complains, Muschamp said. He was on our kickoff return team and our punt block team last year. He never complained. I wish he would talk to some of our freshmen. Were trying to get them to unworks extremely hard. You come to our practices, and he puts in the work every day. Hes a great example for our younger players. One embattled player in particular has benplaying pickup at Chisholm Community Center in DeLand. DeAnte Pop Saunders is in his second year as Floridas starting safety, but his impact hasnt always been positive. Saunders missed Floridas game against Alabama last October due to a violation of team rules. He agreed to deferred prosecution following an arrest in May on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges. son for undisclosed reasons. Saunders may have gotten in some trouble at Florida, but Gillislee helped the safety land He was one of those hot heads, Kentrell said of Saunders. He looked up to Mike, because [Saunders] was a sophomore playing on varsity. He always asked us questions and we tried to stick with him, because we knew everyone around the city does drugs. We just told him to keep on the right path, because he had the talent, too. Smith added: Whenever Pop was into some crap, wed be like Hey Mike, you have to go talk to him. Hed get right on it. He was like a big brother to Pop. Gillislee looked out for his teammates. When offensive line in 2008, broke his leg before the season, Gillislee showed his center some love by visiting him. member Mike coming over the house sitting there playing Xbox with me. Not even talking about football. Just hanging out with me. on-one situations. I know Mike was from a low-income area, but he always took care of his teammates, dinner and him covering me. He always had that heart about him. Gillislee didnt have much. Kentrell can attest to that. The cousins would help their grandfather mow lawns just to make an extra buck. in the midst of DeLands 0-10 season, Gillislees junior year, when the running backs work ethic was evident. I didnt get to play one game and I told Mike on the bench, Look man, I never thought itd be and said, I cant believe it either, but I know one day itll be different. changed for the better. DeLand went 5-6 his senior season and after three years of sitting on the bench, Gillislee leads the SEC in rushing. Im glad hes there (at Florida), Smith said. Im glad hes playing big-time football, because he deserves it. He came up from a rough area and he was never one of those kids who stayed out on the streets. He seemed like he always wanted to do something with it. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org.

Students, faculty members and alumni participated Thursday in March Against Hate, a demonstration organized by UF Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Affairs, Pride Student Union and the Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus. The march was a response to last weeks hate crime against a UF Levin College of Law professor, said Bridget Siegel, Pride president. It was something we knew we had to do right away, she said. About 75 students gathered at Peabody Hall to walk through campus chanting, clapping and following a solidarity banner signed by LGBT supporters. By the time the march ended on Turlington Plaza, the group had amassed more than 100 people.

We were true Gainesville-ians, said Copeland, who graduated with a degree in building construction and met his wife at the Swamp Restaurant. The catalyst for the bands formation occurred at a Florida vs. Tennessee tailgate party in 1990, where Copeland was introduced to Ken Block. Copeland said Block began singing a cover of Peaceful Easy Feeling by the Eagles, and Copeland accompanied him with acoustic guitar and harmony vocals. Yall need to go make some money doing that! bystanders told the duo. Copeland and Block took the advice. This March, the two will have been singing together for 22 years. The pair played its cafe on Tower Road. They performed as an acoustic duo for three years before adding a bassist, drummer and lead guitarist to form Sister Hazel.

The virus was found in two chickens, the city announced Thursday night. While no human cases have been reported, the Alachua County Health Department encourages people to wear bug spray and to drain standing water. The risk of disease transmission to humans and animals has increased, Anthony Dennis, environmental health director of the Alachua County Health Department, wrote in a press release. Citizens are encouraged to avoid exposure to mosquitoes. After one person died of the West Nile virus in Pensacola Wednesday, 23-year-old graduate student Laura Gorham said she started paying more attention to mosquitos. County Disease Control staff member Isabel Anasco said the county tests chickens weekly, because the presence of West Nile virus in the birds can indicate the presence of the disease in the community. Anasco said the county mosquito control unit also routinely sprays chemicals to reduce the mosquito population countywide. She said protecting yourself can be as easy ers collecting standing water in residential areas, wearing mosquito repellent and avoiding going outdoors at dusk. The last documented incident of a mosquito-borne illness in Alachua County was during summer, when a chicken tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis, according to a press release issued by the Alachua County Health Department July 16. The symptoms of West Nile are headache, a In rare cases, infected people develop neurological symptoms such as memory loss.County health department: Keep calm and wear bug spray SEE SISTER HAZEL, PAGE 4Copeland ... but disease can spread with a Laura Gorham

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE SLOW SUMMER MONTHS DIMINISHED THE BUSINESS BUDGET. BRITTANY ANN MORRISEYAlligator Contributing Writer through the neon lights of The Laboratory thanks to donations from community members. The bar, at 818 W. University Ave., suffered a horribly wretched summer that left Larry Bruce, the owner, about $1,500 in debt. Bruce, 42, said he had budgeted for the summer. He knew about the inevitable summer slump when students clear out of Gainesville. But this summer was slower than the past two years, and the electricity bill was higher than usual, he said. His summer budget was gone by May. Dont own a small business during a recession, he joked. To make up the difference, he reached out to patrons for donations and set up an online contribution site. Now, he said, he has enough money to pay the electric bill. Weve had such a positive feedback from customers and friends, he said. There is great sense of community. The online donations page has since been taken down, because the electric bill has been paid, Bruce said. He said hes seen several restaurants come and go in the area, especially because the block gets skipped over for business when people head to Midtown or downtown. The bar was still about $600 short of being fully restocked Wednesday. Some of the money for the electricity bill came out of the money that is set aside for food and beer, Bruce said. At the start of a fundraiser Wednesday night, the bar was already out of food, and had a few eight-packs of beer left. Bruce said hes making ends meet and plans to host a themed night at the bar Saturday. Hannah Esty, a 23-year-old Santa Fe College theater sophomore, said shes been a patron of The Lab since it opened in 2010. She said shes a big fan of the bars nachos, which she described as freaking amazing, but she said she enjoys the overall atmosphere at the bar. Its amazing, she said. (Its) one of the only places in Gainesville like it. John Stoltz, 22-year-old Santa Fe College music sophomore, and his band played at the bar Wednesday night as part of a fundraiser. He said he loved how the bar has so many theme nights with different styles of music, such as goth and postpunk music. Nowhere else does that, he said.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffUF President Bernie Machen speaks at March Against Hate on Turlington Plaza on Thursday afternoon. More than 100 students joined the march. Attendees said progress has been made, but theres more work to docrime. I think its good for the community to speak up about this so theres no doubt about where we stand, Machen said later that day. I just wanted to be there to tell them I was proud of them, I identify with what theyre doing, and I agree with them. College of Education graduate student Jess Clawson said UF has dealt with more than a century of discrimination. Thats what today is about the queer students not backing down in the face of hostility, she said. Kim Emery, an associate professor in the English department, spoke soon after, calling last weeks crime cruel and criticizing the white dancing couple statue on the Plaza of the Americas. Where is our giant statue of black dykes in each others arms? she asked the crowd. After the march, students stood in the plaza, blotting sweat from their foreheads, shaking hands, hugging. It was great to see so much support from students and make something positive out of something so horrible, said Marla Munro, an LGBT Affairs intern and president of Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus. Clare Walsh, a 52-year-old sociology graduate student whos been at UF for six years, was one of the last to walk away from the march. Its a lot easier to say youre a queer person now than it was even six years ago, she said. Progress is being made. Alligator staff writer Julia Glum also contributed to this report.

The impression the nun made on the band outlasted her name recognition as time elapsed. When we started the band, she was in Haiti, Copeland said. We didnt know she was still alive. When Williams returned to the U.S., Copeland said she noticed her name appearing on billboards. She contacted Block and said, I see my name in all these different places. I think we need to have a talk. Once Williams understood how her name connected to the bands music, she gave the OK to rock on. We were somebody everybody could connect to, Copeland said. We had that in common with her. Regardless of race, religion, background, she was accepting of everyone. bands music as well as his own. He said the song A Little Like Heaven on his 2004 solo album, with lyrics set at Paynes Prairie and Hogtown Creek, points to a deeply per sonal love for the area. Theres always something going on a feeling of youth and regeneration because of the university, Copeland said. Gainesville is a very special place. The at-home relationship at UF that Copeland said the band enjoys is reciprocated by Michael Blachly, director of UF Performing Arts. Sister Hazel is my house band, Blachly wrote in an email. Theyre simply part of Gainesvilles musical DNA.

Stay cool at the game tomorrow, and have a safe weekend!Romneys 47 percent remarks misleadingOf all the seemingly shocking statistics that Conservatives love to sputter in defense of their regressive tax policies, their favorite must be that 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax. Astounding, isnt it? How can those pinko-commie hippies at Occupy Wall Street complain about tax cuts for the rich, when almost half the nation doesnt pay taxes? By now, chances are youve seen or heard about the secret video taken at a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser for Mitt Romney last May, recently released by Mother Jones magazine, during which he grumbled to attendees about this very segment of the population: There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it And they will vote for this president no matter what. Aside from the fact that Romney blatantly insulted half the nation nice one, Willard his comment was disingenuous for the same reason that any mention of this fact by the Right is disingenuous: These almost 147 million citizens, for whom Romney evidently holds such contempt, are actually too poor, too elderly or too young to pay income taxes. Of the 47 percent who pay no income tax, about half dont earn enough to even qualify for the lowest tax bracket and still pay several other taxes, including payroll taxes, state and local sales taxes, excise or sin taxes, and gas taxes. The threshold below which a family of four is exempt from paying income tax was $26,400 last year, and it goes without saying that the other taxes such a household is required to pay are more than substantial. The other half of citizens with no income tax liability concitizens, students or the working poor. Any time anti-tax conservatives and right-libertarians cite the 47 percent statistic, all theyre doing is misleading average middle-class Americans into favoring their brand of nomics, the cornerstone of which is counterproductive tax cuts for the wealthy. Despite the fact that businesses typically make their decisions based solely on whether those ply-siders justify slashing tax rates for the rich by portraying them as job creators, as if businesses will magically hire new workers simply because theyre swimming in money. If this were the case, we wouldnt have the unemployment crisis were experiencing now. Tax cuts for the rich yield only two outcomes: increased income inequality, which is already higher than at any time since the Gilded Age of the late 19th Now Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are running on the same supply-side policy positions that have crashed our economy and given rise to a new Gilded Age in which the bottom half of all Americans combined more than 150 million people. Of course, a politician is perfectly capable of advocating these ludicrous positions without needlessly bashing more than 140 million Americans. One would think that after the considerable number of blunders Romney has already made on the campaign trail to avoid painting half the nation as blind freeloaders. But the truth is, he was simply feeding the robber barons at the fundraiser exactly what they wanted to hear. When Romney tells a room of rich individuals they are the responsible, productive class while everyone else is a lazy parasite, hes drawing on decades of right-wing rhetoric meant to dupe working people into voting against their own economic self-interests. Apparently, this is how Romney aims to win the election. Dont be fooled. Moiss Reyes is a journalism graduate student.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorDear Ryan, I really enjoyed reading your column in the Alligator on Wednesday. Your example with the mountain really hits the spot. I have used the same idea in other areas besides religion and agree that various religions are different paths climbing toward the top. Here is where our opinions differ a bit. Agnosticism (nonreligion) and even atheism are paths people follow in their quest for something more noble with great success I might add. If we modify your example a bit, I think we can get a better idea of what is really going on. I will not put God on the top of the mountain; I will put the good person there. By good, I mean that inherent notion that every being carries within. (I know this sounds naive, but I am a mathematician, and my skills with words are limited.) The path will then be our efforts to become that ideal person. Religions help you get there (that should be at least part of their agenda), but they are not the only way. I, like you, believe that human beings are not capable of achieving that true noble goal. At least I am not capable of becoming that ideal person, but that is OK. The point is to try to climb up that mountain every day, any way you can. Help others around you, not by showing them the path you are taking, but by promising them that the view from up there is awesome. Help those in need, forgive and ask for forgiveness when you do something wrong, because you will do something wrong. Help others better themselves, and ultimately, love each other. I am Thanos Gentimis, I am agnostic and I support this message (without the typos and the bad grammar). Athanasios Gentimis, Ph.D. UF Department Of Mathematics Someone I barely know contacted me the other day, and it creeped me out a little bit. I had just met her a few days earlier, and she said Hi to me on Facebook. Immediately I thought she was crazy. Ironically, not two weeks before this, I sent a Facebook message to someone I had only talked to a few times in person, to share something interesting. A mutual friend told me the next day that the person I had messaged thought it was weird, because I did not normally talk to her. tions hilariously unnecessary. Despite how they began, each led to me and the other person becoming better friends. If it makes getting to know somewe get creeped out so easily? When we are not familiar with a person, we have no idea what that persons intentions are. So any time someone we do not know very well wants to talk to us, we are on guard. Naturally we have to protect ourselves from all the lunatics out there. But most of the time when we are weirded out by someone, we have more of a connection than we think. Feeling iffy about complete strangers makes sense; we have no reason to trust their intentions. When the person is someone we know through a friend or talked to at a party, however, we could stand to be more open to communication. A few days after I was unexpectedly messaged by that girl on Facebook, I decided to respond to her. It felt stupid to think she was weird because she said hello. But responding to her still made me feel a bit uncomfortable in a way, as if I was not supposed to let her talk to me just because she started the conversation. Of course, once we actually started talking more, those feelings went away, and I discovered she was not actually creepy. Until youre sure of someones intentions, they will always seem like they may be slightly creepy. The article Trust Building Among Strangers, published in Management Science, stated that being open-minded enough to learn a per sons intentions was the key factor in how much people trusted people they did not know. We do not have to be friends with everyone, but we can miss out on a lot if we are too quick to judge how creepy someone actually is. Sure, there are actual creeps out there, but probably a lot fewer than we let ourselves believe.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterUF police said they are monitoring a string of bomb threats that led to mass evacuations at college campuses nationwide in the last week. The University of Texas at Austin and North Dakota State University received bomb threats by telephone Sept. 14. School vassed the campuses. Students and faculty at Hiram College, in northeast Ohio, were also forced to evacuate later that day following a bomb threat via email. ter 911 dispatch received a call from a man who said he had placed multiple bombs on campus. The school shut down for the rest of the day while police searched for the devices. Students at an Arkansas State University dormitory were evacuated Tuesday afternoon following a bomb threat. the incidents do not appear to be related. Although these bomb threats occurred outside Florida, ment. On Aug. 14, two people claimed they hid a bomb on the to Alligator archives. Police traced the call and later arrested the suspects. In the Spring, there was a bomb threat to the Stephen C. search. Following UFs 2009 Homecoming Parade, a maintenance worker found an unattended backpack in the Reitz Union used as a tire wedge. In 2008, UPD responded to a threat in which someone called the Alachua County 911 dispatch and said a bomb would go off in the Florida Gym. After searching for two hours, police building. UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber said the department has to be prepared for all possibilities. According to Florida law, a bomb threat is a threat to throw, project, place or discharge a destructive device. Bomb threats are typically made by phone, Barber said. But there have been instances, like at Hiram College, in which a bomb threat was made via email. If a bomb threat of any kind is made to campus, Barber said, UPD establishes a site location and assesses a number of factors to verify the credibility of the threat. These factors include time, location, potential target and if there is an event happening. members on the situation through the UF Alert system, which includes text messages, emails, tweets and posts on UPDs website. UF Alert system is our primary means of discussing with the community what is taking place, Barber said. In the updates, police address the incident location as well as instructions to either evacuate or avoid the area, depending on each case. It is very situationally dependent, Barber said. unattended package, they treat it like a bomb. UPD then calls versity community in harms way when it comes to any kind of suspicious package, Barber said. Lt. J.J. Moran, commander of ASOs Bomb Disposal Team, said the team would respond with whatever equipment UPD spect a potential explosive device. We also have additional investigative options that allow us to inspect potential suspicious devices while keeping at a safe distance, Moran wrote in an email. Depending on the situation, bomb threats on campus can suspend classes or daily building operations. Incidents can last for hours until police give an all clear.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionHow many games will the Florida football team win this season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Senior middle blocker Betsy Smiths leadership has helped the UF volleyball team overcome adversity in 2012. See story, page 15. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer For Florida, the sting of last seasons embarrassment against Furman is still fresh. On Nov. 19, seven days before UF was slated to play FSU, the Gators fell into an early 15-0 hole against the Paladins, an opponent from the FCS. Although Florida eventually rallied in a 54-32 win, the shame of trailing on home turf as a 29.5-point favorite is remembered as a low point in a disappointing 7-6 season. We kind of looked past Furman, and they came out a great team, safety Josh Evans said. But thats something about, too. Staying focused. Were not taking Kentucky light. Saturdays game against the Wildcats presents the Gators with a situation similar to last years matchup with the Paladins. Again, Florida is at home. Again, UF is a nearly 30-point favorite. And again, a matchup with a highly ranked rival looms on the horizon this time a showdown against No. 2 LSU on Oct. 6. But this time, the Gators believe different preparation will lead to a different outcome. This year, Florida players say they wont let up. History will not repeat itself in The Swamp. Weve just been through too much, offensive guard Jon Halapio said. We have too much at stake for the amount of work we put in for this season. Said coach Will Muschamp: You only have 12 opportunities a year. You need to prepare well and play well, and thats what we plan on doing. Florida has beaten Kentucky 25 consecutive times. The last four of those meetings have been decided by an average margin of 41 points. Still, the Gators are intent on The formula is simple: practice hard and treat this week like any other. Whether were playing Kentucky or LSU, it doesnt matter, nose tackle Omar Hunter said. Go out and practice the Gator way every day. On the heels of upset road wins against Tennessee and Texas A&M, Florida is looking to keep momentum going in its favor. Were just going to try to go out and play like weve been playing, linebacker Jon Bostic said. Were not going to let down just because weve beaten them so many times. Saturdays game precedes opportunity before October for Florida to iron out any wrinkles. Despite the 3-0 start, there are plenty of areas the Gators want to address. Evans said the defense needs David Carr / Alligator StaffCoach Will Muschamp reacts to a referees call during Floridas 37-20 win against Tennessee at Neyland Stadium. After two weeks on the road, we here at alligatorSports will Gainesville. But instead of catching up with school work and cleaning up the hell holes our rooms have become during our absence, we plan on getting wasted on whatevers cheapest and introducing ourselves by our column names to numerous unimpressed females at Midtown. Success or failure, our pride shall not be dashed. Besides, we have another two weekends in town to charm unsuspecting co-eds with our enthralling tales of life on the UF gymnastics beat. This week, Adam Pincus and Josh Jurnovoy debate a game they will likely ignore as they clamor for the affections of a girl at the bar who will someday tear our ragtag staff apart. Rich Rodriguez has recovered from his Michigan hack job and rekindled The Ducks have been more concerned with their game day attire than playing a real opponent. Oregon hasnt shown it can hold an offense like Arizonas in check. Look out for Arizona senior quar terback Matt Scott, who lit it up last week. Plus, have you seen the latest issue of Sports Illustrated? Oregons bright yellow jerseys hurt my eyes. Arizona covers!ADAM PINCUS will want to up the ante on Saturday to psych out their upstart Pac-12 rivals, who have somehow managed to equal their 3-0 start. Oregon will emerge from the tunnel wearing uniforms that are bright green from head to toe and dotted Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: 12:21 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: SEC NETWORK / 850 AM SEE PICKS, PA GE 14 ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer end, they will have to deal with more than just a pair of Southeastern Conference rivals. Theyll have their own emotions to cope with as well. Florida (4-3-1, 1-1 SEC) will square off against No. 23 Tennessee on Friday and Georgia on Sunday. Its hard to not let your emotions get the said. You have to let your technique over ride any emotions. Junior defender Maggie Rodgers said the team tries to look at the entire SEC as their rivals, not just Tennessee (6-1-2, 1-0-1 SEC) and Georgia (5-3-1, 1-0-1 SEC). Playing Auburn, they took the SEC tournament title from us last year, and we just come in for the huddle were just like, This is revenge, Rodgers said. All SEC teams are our rivals. We treat every team like that. Florida avenged last seasons loss and defeated Auburn 2-1 on Sunday thanks to an overtime goal from junior forward Adriana Leon. Florida has already played one game against a traditional rival a 1-0 loss to No. 1 Florida State on Aug. 31. In that match, the Gators missed several opportunities to score, getting shut out despite taking 12 shots. Tennessee comes into Fridays match with Florida after a tiring weekend. The Volunteers played in two overtime matches last ute and playing to a two-overtime draw in the second. Florida played 99 minutes against Auburn on Sunday, and have a 2-0-1 record in overtime matches this season.Gators to face pair of SEC rivals this weekendFlorida looks to avoid letdown after key wins UF Fo otball SEE FOOTBALL, PA GE 14 SEE SOCCER, PA GE 14Rodgers UF plays Tennessee and GeorgiaPoll ResultsIs quarterback Jeff Driskel prepared to carry Floridas offense moving forward?96% YES 4% NO145 total votes

Heres a hint, Josh: When you see red squiggly lines everywhere, hit spell check. Youll be better off for it. Rounding out second place from the Associated Press is Mark Where my tribesmen at? Long, who used a break during a recent interview session to identify and tag all the Jewish members of the UF media contingent. Sorry, Mark, but they were never going to invite you to their Rosh Hashanah keg stand. And tied for dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-12 Muschamp, offering back only an open palm and an unrelenting glare.

Also in dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-12 is is a pair of glasses Morgan, who cant read anything smaller than size-739 font or see anything more than 15 yards away, but doesnt think this problem needs to be addressed. When you edit a newspaper and watch sports for a living, clearly vision isnt an important skill.

Rounding out the three-way tie for dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-12 is alligatorSports editor Greg This is a bad neighborhood! Luca, who always harps on his pasthe vehicle.

Wideout Frankie Hammond Jr. said the offense can improve in all areas just part of the standard day-by -day process. Jon Halapio added that issues with penalties, converting on short-yardage opportunities and offensive alignments all need to be addressed. The bye week will give the coaches a chance to put together photo and video packages that highlight more areas of concern, but a strong performance on Saturday would cross a few necessary We need to gel in four quarters, all together, Halapio said. We need to come out stronger and faster. If they dont, Saturdays game could turn into another Furman. If they do, the Gators will head into the bye week an unscathed 4-0. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Since 2001, eight of the 16 games between Florida and Tennessee have gone to overtime, the last being a 1-0 double-overtime UF victory in 2009. The Gators will play in front of more than just the usual crowd this weekend. More than 20 Florida soccer alumni, including three-time All-American stands for Gator Soccer Alumni Weekend. want to come back, freshman defenda lot about the program.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior Betsy Smith celebrates after scoring a point during UFs win against FAMU at the OConnell Center on Aug. 25. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The Gators have had plenty of reasons to give up this season, associate head coach Dave Boos said. Instead, Florida heads into Friday nights Southeastern Conference home opener at 7 against Missouri (10-2, 2-0) with a No. 13 ranking and a perfect SEC record. Boos said UF (8-2, 2-0 SEC) stayed strong amid offseason losses and injuries because of the leadership of the upperclassmen. Theres a lot of reasons for a group like this to say, Well, this shouldnt be our year, he said. This senior group is not letting that happen. This group hasnt had that mind frame at all from the beginning. shirt senior and team captain Betsy Smith. The 6-foot-2 Atlanta product has 56 kills and 18 blocks through 10 matches at middle blocker this season. But her impact is felt off the court as well. Smith said she embraces her role as a leader for the 11 underclassmen that make up the majority of the teams roster. They do some goofy things, Smith said. I have to put myself back in their shoes like, OK, I would have done ure out how they are, who they are as people, and thats been the fun part. Freshman Dana Backlund said she has increased her knowledge and love of the game just by watching the older players compete with the same mentality in practices as in games. Its such a big help watching them, she said. You learn so much in what really needs to be done. So its a great learning experience for all of us. Theyve all been great leaders (and) great examples for all of us. Boos praised Backlund and the rest of the freshman class for being so receptive and ready to follow in the footsteps of UFs veterans. He said this attitude has given the Gators success thus far, and his team is prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Were really steady, Boos said. Were composed. And from the ready to go.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer One of the worst parts of the season is already in the past for the Gators. They havent played the toughest teams on their schedule, and their games havent had the highest stakes. But Florida came out of one of its tougher two-game road trips in recent memory without a blemish on its record and will only have to play one Southeastern Conference game on the road the rest of the season. at Texas A&M and Tennessee, the No. 14 said junior offensive lineman Kyle Koehne, last Saturday against Tennessee. Playing in The Swamp is a huge advantage, but yeah, I mean I think it was great training playing in such big stadiums and with such noise. It helps our communication, a bunch of things, and I think itll just give us more of an adule after three weeks. In 1992, Florida won its opener at home against Kentucky before then went on a seven-game winning streak ference away game, a 41-21 victory against Vanderbilt. The early road games, while daunting have paid dividends for Florida. We played two good teams and for our kids to go in there and come out with vicoffensive coordinator Brent Pease said. It take a bigger step of wanting to improve and The early road success also provided new starting quarterback Jeff Driskel with valuable experience. His passer rating improved with each contest, he has yet to throw an interception and he showed increased pocket awareness against the Volunteers, as he was not sacked after taking eight sacks against the Aggies. In both games we expected him to play Week 2 there at Tennessee. Im sure its more than anything, the players around him. Theyve played well, but they have now, instead of the uncertainty maybe of how he will play, they know hes going to posure to the hostile environments of Kyle Field and Neyland Stadium. He was forced to make adjustments at the line of scrimmage while dealing with relentless noise from the opposing crowds. Considering he was up to the challenge, making the same play calls at Hes keeping us in tempo and hes getthe ball off. Were not getting up there and letting the defense get aligned so much and waiting and being able to look and get their cleats in the ground and their eyes to the ball as much. Hes doing it much quicker and our guys are able to react and sometimes, Floridas opponent is not riding the same high as Saturday approaches. Kentucky fell to 1-2 last week with a 32-31 overtime loss at home to Western Kentucky. One of the few bright spots this season for the Wildcats has been quarterback Max passing. He has thrown eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy said the secondary is aware of the challenges the Wildcats will present, as well as what the Gators will have to do to handle them. passes. Theyve got a good passing game. As Purifoy and the rest of the defense should have plenty of crowd support on Saturday night. When asked if he feels like the road wins have caused more of a buzz around the didnt hesitate.

ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer With each carry, Mike Gillislee runs farther away from the dangers of DeLand. His cousin Kentrell Gillislee, meanwhile, deals with the perils of their hometown every day. While Mike leads the Southeastern Conference in rushing, Kentrell is working at Captain Ds Seafood Restaurant. I have a part-time job, but thats not what it is around here, Kentrell said. I cant stand the area. It gets hard. If you dont get a scholarship to play football, you have to be an A+ student to get up out of here. Other than that, theres people around here that sell dope and shoot. Its not the right place for anybody. An accusation of lewd battery in 2009 ruined Kentrells shot at a Division I football scholarship. After receiving interest from Central Florida, Florida International and Illinois, he settled on a football scholarship to Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, but stayed for just one year. The cousins, both 21 years old, played together at DeLand High. Football has always been part of their bond, back to the days when they would do barefoot imitations of Emmitt Smith in the middle of South Clara Avenue during their childhood. Alfred Smith coached at DeLand from 20022012 and has seen the development of the cousThere was something different about him as a freshman. Football was Mikes big ticket, and he knew it from a young age, Smith said. That kid wanted to get strong, Smith said. He would come into the weight room and hed bust his butt. He wouldnt be going in there laughing and playing with the other kids. He was repping out, waiting and recovering, and went right back to work. Smith served as offensive coordinator when the Bulldogs. Now hes the head coach at Crescent City High. When kids come out of that area (DeLand) and do good for themselves, that whole city supports them, Smith said. They know what type of area that is. Last year, Kentrells 16-year-old cousin, Calvin Nealy Jr., died from the bullet of another teenagers gun. Nealy was the second young adult from DeLand shot between March 20 and April 2 of 2011. Through it all, Mike found his way to Gainesville, where hes running with more than just the Gators in mind. Hes trying to do this not only for himself, but for his whole city, Smith said. Hes got a lot of friends he left behind still doing wrong whose only hope is him. fourth game of his senior season at Florida with the Gators hopes for 2012 largely on his shoulders. To this point, he hasnt disappointed. Through three games, Gillislee has rushed for 346 yards and scored four touchdowns. His yardage total is the highest for any Florida rushCiatrick Fason gained 396 yards in 2004. Fason was Floridas last 1,000 yard rusher. Gillislees success has been a long time coming for the senior who arrived at Florida as the lone running back in Urban Meyers 2009 recruiting class. During the last three seasons, Gillislee took a back seat to speedsters Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps. Injuries also kept Gillislee on the sidelines last season. He suffered a sprained ankle against LSU on Oct. 8, which limited the physical runners carries the rest of the way. Prior to this seasons opener against Bowling Green, when he ran the football 24 times, Gillislee hadnt received more than 11 carries in a game. Although he led the Gators with a 5.9 yards tempts well behind Demps 98 and Raineys 171. He was also used mostly in garbage time, with only two of his 56 attempts coming in the second half with either team down one score or less. Although the Gators experienced trouble running between the tackles last season, Gillislee did not see as much playing time as his high school coordinator felt he should have. I used to give him the ball 30 times a game, Smith said. Heck yeah, I wanted him to have more playing time, because I knew what he had in him. last season. Against No. 1 LSU, Gillislee led the Gators with 56 yards. He had the talent, but his offense. Last year we had those two little fast guys that were kind of the same player, so that minimized his touches, Weis said. A struggling Florida offensive line didnt help Gillislee, either. We didnt block as well as were blocking right now, Gators coach Will Muschamp said. Not taking anything away from Mike, because hes running really well, but were a little differently equipped in the running game than we were a year ago. Smith made sure his former player stayed focused, even with the public clamoring for Gillislee to get in the game. Fans chimed in on Twitter with #freegilly hashtags and messages pleading for him to touch the football, which still make appearances during Gators game days in 2012. I kept in touch with him, because I knew it was tough on him, Smith said. He knew he could do it and he knew a lot of people knew he could do it. It seemed like he just wasnt getting the chance. The only thing I was doing was telling him to be patient. High school teammates took notice of how the former four-star recruit handled the lack of playing time. He had to wait his turn, former DeLand wouldve transferred, but Mike had his mind on the goal and took whatever it took to get there. With touches rare, Gillislee worked on the at Florida. Hes a guy that never complains, Muschamp said. He was on our kickoff return team and our punt block team last year. He never complained. I wish he would talk to some of our freshmen. Were trying to get them to unworks extremely hard. You come to our practices, and he puts in the work every day. Hes a great example for our younger players. One embattled player in particular has benplaying pickup at Chisholm Community Center in DeLand. DeAnte Pop Saunders is in his second year as Floridas starting safety, but his impact hasnt always been positive. Saunders missed Floridas game against Alabama last October due to a violation of team rules. He agreed to deferred prosecution following an arrest in May on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges. son for undisclosed reasons. Saunders may have gotten in some trouble at Florida, but Gillislee helped the safety land He was one of those hot heads, Kentrell said of Saunders. He looked up to Mike, because [Saunders] was a sophomore playing on varsity. He always asked us questions and we tried to stick with him, because we knew everyone around the city does drugs. We just told him to keep on the right path, because he had the talent, too. Smith added: Whenever Pop was into some crap, wed be like Hey Mike, you have to go talk to him. Hed get right on it. He was like a big brother to Pop. Gillislee looked out for his teammates. When offensive line in 2008, broke his leg before the season, Gillislee showed his center some love by visiting him. member Mike coming over the house sitting there playing Xbox with me. Not even talking about football. Just hanging out with me. on-one situations. I know Mike was from a low-income area, but he always took care of his teammates, dinner and him covering me. He always had that heart about him. Gillislee didnt have much. Kentrell can attest to that. The cousins would help their grandfather mow lawns just to make an extra buck. in the midst of DeLands 0-10 season, Gillislees junior year, when the running backs work ethic was evident. I didnt get to play one game and I told Mike on the bench, Look man, I never thought itd be and said, I cant believe it either, but I know one day itll be different. changed for the better. DeLand went 5-6 his senior season and after three years of sitting on the bench, Gillislee leads the SEC in rushing. Im glad hes there (at Florida), Smith said. Im glad hes playing big-time football, because he deserves it. He came up from a rough area and he was never one of those kids who stayed out on the streets. He seemed like he always wanted to do something with it. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org.

The march was a response to last weeks hate crime against a UF Levin College of Law professor, said Bridget Siegel, Pride president. It was something we knew we had to do right away, she said. About 75 students gathered at Peabody Hall to walk through campus chanting, clapping and following a solidarity banner signed by LGBT supporters.

We were true Gainesville-ians, said Copeland, who graduated with a degree in building construction and met his wife at the Swamp Restaurant. The catalyst for the bands formation occurred at a Florida vs. Tennessee tailgate party in 1990, where Copeland was introduced to Ken Block. Copeland said Block began singing a cover of Peaceful Easy Feeling by the Eagles, and Copeland accompanied him with acoustic guitar and harmony vocals. Yall need to go make some money doing that! bystanders told the duo. Copeland and Block took the advice. This March, the two will have been singing together for 22 years.

The risk of disease transmission to humans and animals has increased, Anthony Dennis, environmental health director of the Alachua County Health Department, wrote in a press release. Citizens are encouraged to avoid exposure to mosquitoes. After one person died of the West Nile virus in Pensacola Wednesday, 23-year-old graduate student Laura Gorham said she started paying more attention to mosquitos. County Disease Control staff member Isabel Anasco said the county tests chickens weekly, because the presence of West Nile virus in the birds can indicate the presence of the disease in the community. Anasco said the county mosquito control unit also routinely sprays chemicals to reduce the mosquito population countywide. She said protecting yourself can be as easy ers collecting standing water in residential areas, wearing mosquito repellent and avoiding going outdoors at dusk. The last documented incident of a mosquito-borne illness in Alachua County was during summer, when a chicken tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis, according to a press release issued by the Alachua County Health Department July 16.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 THE SLOW SUMMER MONTHS DIMINISHED THE BUSINESS BUDGET. BRITTANY ANN MORRISEYAlligator Contributing Writer through the neon lights of The Laboratory thanks to donations from community members. The bar, at 818 W. University Ave., suffered a horribly wretched summer that left Larry Bruce, the owner, about $1,500 in debt. Bruce, 42, said he had budgeted for the summer. He knew about the inevitable summer slump when students clear out of Gainesville. But this summer was slower than the past two years, and the electricity bill was higher than usual, he said. His summer budget was gone by May. Dont own a small business during a recession, he joked. To make up the difference, he reached out to patrons for donations and set up an online contribution site. Now, he said, he has enough money to pay the electric bill. Weve had such a positive feedback from customers and friends, he said. There is great sense of community. The online donations page has since been taken down, because the electric bill has been paid, Bruce said. He said hes seen several restaurants come and go in the area, especially because the block gets skipped over for business when people head to Midtown or downtown. The bar was still about $600 short of being fully restocked Wednesday. Some of the money for the electricity bill came out of the money that is set aside for food and beer, Bruce said. At the start of a fundraiser Wednesday night, the bar was already out of food, and had a few eight-packs of beer left. Bruce said hes making ends meet and plans to host a themed night at the bar Saturday. Hannah Esty, a 23-year-old Santa Fe College theater sophomore, said shes been a patron of The Lab since it opened in 2010. She said shes a big fan of the bars nachos, which she described as freaking amazing, but she said she enjoys the overall atmosphere at the bar. Its amazing, she said. (Its) one of the only places in Gainesville like it. John Stoltz, 22-year-old Santa Fe College music sophomore, and his band played at the bar Wednesday night as part of a fundraiser. He said he loved how the bar has so many theme nights with different styles of music, such as goth and postpunk music. Nowhere else does that, he said.

More than 100 students joined the march. Attendees said progress has been made, but theres more work to docrime. I think its good for the community to speak up about this so theres no doubt about where we stand, Machen said later that day. I just wanted to be there to tell them I was proud of them, I identify with what theyre doing, and I agree with them. College of Education graduate student Jess Clawson said UF has dealt with more than a century of discrimination. Thats what today is about the queer students not backing down in the face of hostility, she said. Kim Emery, an associate professor in the English department, spoke soon after, calling last weeks crime cruel and criticizing the white dancing couple statue on the Plaza of the Americas. Where is our giant statue of black dykes in each others arms? she asked the crowd. After the march, students stood in the plaza, blotting sweat from their foreheads, shaking hands, hugging. It was great to see so much support from students and make something positive out of something so horrible, said Marla Munro, an LGBT Affairs intern and president of Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus. Clare Walsh, a 52-year-old sociology graduate student whos been at UF for six years, was one of the last to walk away from the march. Its a lot easier to say youre a queer person now than it was even six years ago, she said. Progress is being made. Alligator staff writer Julia Glum also contributed to this report.

Stay cool at the game tomorrow, and have a safe weekend!Romneys 47 percent remarks misleadingOf all the seemingly shocking statistics that Conservatives love to sputter in defense of their regressive tax policies, their favorite must be that 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax. Astounding, isnt it? How can those pinko-commie hippies at Occupy Wall Street complain about tax cuts for the rich, when almost half the nation doesnt pay taxes? By now, chances are youve seen or heard about the secret video taken at a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser for Mitt Romney last May, recently released by Mother Jones magazine, during which he grumbled to attendees about this very segment of the population: There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it And they will vote for this president no matter what. Aside from the fact that Romney blatantly insulted half the nation nice one, Willard his comment was disingenuous for the same reason that any mention of this fact by the Right is disingenuous: These almost 147 million citizens, for whom Romney evidently holds such contempt, are actually too poor, too elderly or too young to pay income taxes. Of the 47 percent who pay no income tax, about half dont earn enough to even qualify for the lowest tax bracket and still pay several other taxes, including payroll taxes, state and local sales taxes, excise or sin taxes, and gas taxes. The threshold below which a family of four is exempt from paying income tax was $26,400 last year, and it goes without saying that the other taxes such a household is required to pay are more than substantial. The other half of citizens with no income tax liability concitizens, students or the working poor. Any time anti-tax conservatives and right-libertarians cite the 47 percent statistic, all theyre doing is misleading average middle-class Americans into favoring their brand of nomics, the cornerstone of which is counterproductive tax cuts for the wealthy. Despite the fact that businesses typically make their decisions based solely on whether those ply-siders justify slashing tax rates for the rich by portraying them as job creators, as if businesses will magically hire new workers simply because theyre swimming in money. If this were the case, we wouldnt have the unemployment crisis were experiencing now. Tax cuts for the rich yield only two outcomes: increased income inequality, which is already higher than at any time since the Gilded Age of the late 19th Now Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are running on the same supply-side policy positions that have crashed our economy and given rise to a new Gilded Age in which the bottom half of all Americans combined more than 150 million people. Of course, a politician is perfectly capable of advocating these ludicrous positions without needlessly bashing more than 140 million Americans. One would think that after the considerable number of blunders Romney has already made on the campaign trail to avoid painting half the nation as blind freeloaders. But the truth is, he was simply feeding the robber barons at the fundraiser exactly what they wanted to hear. When Romney tells a room of rich individuals they are the responsible, productive class while everyone else is a lazy parasite, hes drawing on decades of right-wing rhetoric meant to dupe working people into voting against their own economic self-interests. Apparently, this is how Romney aims to win the election. Dont be fooled. Moiss Reyes is a journalism graduate student.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorDear Ryan, I really enjoyed reading your column in the Alligator on Wednesday. Your example with the mountain really hits the spot. I have used the same idea in other areas besides religion and agree that various religions are different paths climbing toward the top. Here is where our opinions differ a bit. Agnosticism (nonreligion) and even atheism are paths people follow in their quest for something more noble with great success I might add. If we modify your example a bit, I think we can get a better idea of what is really going on. I will not put God on the top of the mountain; I will put the good person there. By good, I mean that inherent notion that every being carries within. (I know this sounds naive, but I am a mathematician, and my skills with words are limited.) The path will then be our efforts to become that ideal person. Religions help you get there (that should be at least part of their agenda), but they are not the only way. I, like you, believe that human beings are not capable of achieving that true noble goal. At least I am not capable of becoming that ideal person, but that is OK. The point is to try to climb up that mountain every day, any way you can. Help others around you, not by showing them the path you are taking, but by promising them that the view from up there is awesome. Help those in need, forgive and ask for forgiveness when you do something wrong, because you will do something wrong. Help others better themselves, and ultimately, love each other. I am Thanos Gentimis, I am agnostic and I support this message (without the typos and the bad grammar). Athanasios Gentimis, Ph.D. UF Department Of Mathematics Someone I barely know contacted me the other day, and it creeped me out a little bit. I had just met her a few days earlier, and she said Hi to me on Facebook. Immediately I thought she was crazy. Ironically, not two weeks before this, I sent a Facebook message to someone I had only talked to a few times in person, to share something interesting. A mutual friend told me the next day that the person I had messaged thought it was weird, because I did not normally talk to her. tions hilariously unnecessary. Despite how they began, each led to me and the other person becoming better friends. If it makes getting to know somewe get creeped out so easily? When we are not familiar with a person, we have no idea what that persons intentions are. So any time someone we do not know very well wants to talk to us, we are on guard. Naturally we have to protect ourselves from all the lunatics out there. But most of the time when we are weirded out by someone, we have more of a connection than we think. Feeling iffy about complete strangers makes sense; we have no reason to trust their intentions. When the person is someone we know through a friend or talked to at a party, however, we could stand to be more open to communication. A few days after I was unexpectedly messaged by that girl on Facebook, I decided to respond to her. It felt stupid to think she was weird because she said hello. But responding to her still made me feel a bit uncomfortable in a way, as if I was not supposed to let her talk to me just because she started the conversation. Of course, once we actually started talking more, those feelings went away, and I discovered she was not actually creepy. Until youre sure of someones intentions, they will always seem like they may be slightly creepy. The article Trust Building Among Strangers, published in Management Science, stated that being open-minded enough to learn a per sons intentions was the key factor in how much people trusted people they did not know. We do not have to be friends with everyone, but we can miss out on a lot if we are too quick to judge how creepy someone actually is. Sure, there are actual creeps out there, but probably a lot fewer than we let ourselves believe.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterUF police said they are monitoring a string of bomb threats that led to mass evacuations at college campuses nationwide in the last week. The University of Texas at Austin and North Dakota State University received bomb threats by telephone Sept. 14. School vassed the campuses. Students and faculty at Hiram College, in northeast Ohio, were also forced to evacuate later that day following a bomb threat via email. ter 911 dispatch received a call from a man who said he had placed multiple bombs on campus. The school shut down for the rest of the day while police searched for the devices. Students at an Arkansas State University dormitory were evacuated Tuesday afternoon following a bomb threat. the incidents do not appear to be related. Although these bomb threats occurred outside Florida, ment. On Aug. 14, two people claimed they hid a bomb on the to Alligator archives. Police traced the call and later arrested the suspects. In the Spring, there was a bomb threat to the Stephen C. search. Following UFs 2009 Homecoming Parade, a maintenance worker found an unattended backpack in the Reitz Union used as a tire wedge. In 2008, UPD responded to a threat in which someone called the Alachua County 911 dispatch and said a bomb would go off in the Florida Gym. After searching for two hours, police building. UPD spokesman Maj. Brad Barber said the department has to be prepared for all possibilities. According to Florida law, a bomb threat is a threat to throw, project, place or discharge a destructive device. Bomb threats are typically made by phone, Barber said. But there have been instances, like at Hiram College, in which a bomb threat was made via email. If a bomb threat of any kind is made to campus, Barber said, UPD establishes a site location and assesses a number of factors to verify the credibility of the threat. These factors include time, location, potential target and if there is an event happening. members on the situation through the UF Alert system, which includes text messages, emails, tweets and posts on UPDs website. UF Alert system is our primary means of discussing with the community what is taking place, Barber said. In the updates, police address the incident location as well as instructions to either evacuate or avoid the area, depending on each case. It is very situationally dependent, Barber said. unattended package, they treat it like a bomb. UPD then calls versity community in harms way when it comes to any kind of suspicious package, Barber said. Lt. J.J. Moran, commander of ASOs Bomb Disposal Team, said the team would respond with whatever equipment UPD spect a potential explosive device. We also have additional investigative options that allow us to inspect potential suspicious devices while keeping at a safe distance, Moran wrote in an email. Depending on the situation, bomb threats on campus can suspend classes or daily building operations. Incidents can last for hours until police give an all clear.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionHow many games will the Florida football team win this season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Senior middle blocker Betsy Smiths leadership has helped the UF volleyball team overcome adversity in 2012. See story, page 15. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer For Florida, the sting of last seasons embarrassment against Furman is still fresh. On Nov. 19, seven days before UF was slated to play FSU, the Gators fell into an early 15-0 hole against the Paladins, an opponent from the FCS. Although Florida eventually rallied in a 54-32 win, the shame of trailing on home turf as a 29.5-point favorite is remembered as a low point in a disappointing 7-6 season. We kind of looked past Furman, and they came out a great team, safety Josh Evans said. But thats something about, too. Staying focused. Were not taking Kentucky light. Saturdays game against the Wildcats presents the Gators with a situation similar to last years matchup with the Paladins. Again, Florida is at home. Again, UF is a nearly 30-point favorite. And again, a matchup with a highly ranked rival looms on the horizon this time a showdown against No. 2 LSU on Oct. 6. But this time, the Gators believe different preparation will lead to a different outcome. This year, Florida players say they wont let up. History will not repeat itself in The Swamp. Weve just been through too much, offensive guard Jon Halapio said. We have too much at stake for the amount of work we put in for this season. Said coach Will Muschamp: You only have 12 opportunities a year. You need to prepare well and play well, and thats what we plan on doing. Florida has beaten Kentucky 25 consecutive times. The last four of those meetings have been decided by an average margin of 41 points. Still, the Gators are intent on The formula is simple: practice hard and treat this week like any other. Whether were playing Kentucky or LSU, it doesnt matter, nose tackle Omar Hunter said. Go out and practice the Gator way every day. On the heels of upset road wins against Tennessee and Texas A&M, Florida is looking to keep momentum going in its favor. Were just going to try to go out and play like weve been playing, linebacker Jon Bostic said. Were not going to let down just because weve beaten them so many times. Saturdays game precedes opportunity before October for Florida to iron out any wrinkles. Despite the 3-0 start, there are plenty of areas the Gators want to address. Evans said the defense needs David Carr / Alligator StaffCoach Will Muschamp reacts to a referees call during Floridas 37-20 win against Tennessee at Neyland Stadium. After two weeks on the road, we here at alligatorSports will Gainesville. But instead of catching up with school work and cleaning up the hell holes our rooms have become during our absence, we plan on getting wasted on whatevers cheapest and introducing ourselves by our column names to numerous unimpressed females at Midtown. Success or failure, our pride shall not be dashed. Besides, we have another two weekends in town to charm unsuspecting co-eds with our enthralling tales of life on the UF gymnastics beat. This week, Adam Pincus and Josh Jurnovoy debate a game they will likely ignore as they clamor for the affections of a girl at the bar who will someday tear our ragtag staff apart. Rich Rodriguez has recovered from his Michigan hack job and rekindled The Ducks have been more concerned with their game day attire than playing a real opponent. Oregon hasnt shown it can hold an offense like Arizonas in check. Look out for Arizona senior quar terback Matt Scott, who lit it up last week. Plus, have you seen the latest issue of Sports Illustrated? Oregons bright yellow jerseys hurt my eyes. Arizona covers!ADAM PINCUS will want to up the ante on Saturday to psych out their upstart Pac-12 rivals, who have somehow managed to equal their 3-0 start. Oregon will emerge from the tunnel wearing uniforms that are bright green from head to toe and dotted Picks Column SITE: The Swamp (cap. 88,548) KICKOFF: 12:21 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: SEC NETWORK / 850 AM sSEE PICKS, paPA GE 14 ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer end, they will have to deal with more than just a pair of Southeastern Conference rivals. Theyll have their own emotions to cope with as well. Florida (4-3-1, 1-1 SEC) will square off against No. 23 Tennessee on Friday and Georgia on Sunday. Its hard to not let your emotions get the said. You have to let your technique over ride any emotions. Junior defender Maggie Rodgers said the team tries to look at the entire SEC as their rivals, not just Tennessee (6-1-2, 1-0-1 SEC) and Georgia (5-3-1, 1-0-1 SEC). Playing Auburn, they took the SEC tournament title from us last year, and we just come in for the huddle were just like, This is revenge, Rodgers said. All SEC teams are our rivals. We treat every team like that. Florida avenged last seasons loss and defeated Auburn 2-1 on Sunday thanks to an overtime goal from junior forward Adriana Leon. Florida has already played one game against a traditional rival a 1-0 loss to No. 1 Florida State on Aug. 31. In that match, the Gators missed several opportunities to score, getting shut out despite taking 12 shots. Tennessee comes into Fridays match with Florida after a tiring weekend. The Volunteers played in two overtime matches last ute and playing to a two-overtime draw in the second. Florida played 99 minutes against Auburn on Sunday, and have a 2-0-1 record in overtime matches this season.Gators to face pair of SEC rivals this weekendFlorida looks to avoid letdown after key wins UF Fo otball sSEE FOOTBALL, paPA GE 14s SEE SOCCEER, paPA GE 14Rodgers UF plays Tennessee and GeorgiaPoll ResultsIs quarterback Jeff Driskel prepared to carry Floridas offense moving forward?96% YEES 4% NO145 total votes

Next up is alligatorSports writer Adam I like having things in my mouth Pincus, who recently discovered the never whats in his mouth its what comes out. I guess were not all equipped with common sense. Then theres alligatorSports writer Josh What the hell is Google? Jurnovoy, who either botched the spelling or comstories this week. Heres a hint, Josh: When you see red squiggly lines everywhere, hit spell check. Youll be better off for it. Rounding out second place from the Associated Press is Mark Where my tribesmen at? Long, who used a break during a recent interview session to identify and tag all the Jewish members of the UF media contingent.  Sorry, Mark, but they were never going to invite you to their Rosh Hashanah keg stand. And tied for dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-12 Muschamp, offering back only an open palm and an unrelenting glare. The duo engaged in the familiar game of handgreeting-method-switching roulette we all know too well, deciding Jason wasnt worth the time. I mean, the guy doesnt even know who Mark Bavaro is. Idiot. Also in dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 12-12 is is a pair of glasses Morgan, who cant read anything smaller than size-739 font or see anything more than 15 yards away, but doesnt think this problem needs to be addressed. When you edit a newspaper and watch sports for a living, clearly vision isnt an important skill. Joes only hope is that Santa brings him a shiny new pair of spectacles this holiday season, because obviously St. Nick has the  necessary  infrastructure to conduct an eye exam and suggest a proper prescription.

Jon Halapio added that issues with penalties, converting on short-yardage opportunities and offensive alignments all need to be addressed.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior Betsy Smith celebrates after scoring a point during UFs win against FAMU at the OConnell Center on Aug. 25. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The Gators have had plenty of reasons to give up this season, associate head coach Dave Boos said. Instead, Florida heads into Friday nights Southeastern Conference home opener at 7 against Missouri (10-2, 2-0) with a No. 13 ranking and a perfect SEC record. Boos said UF (8-2, 2-0 SEC) stayed strong amid offseason losses and injuries because of the leadership of the upperclassmen. Theres a lot of reasons for a group like this to say, Well, this shouldnt be our year, he said. This senior group is not letting that happen. This group hasnt had that mind frame at all from the beginning. shirt senior and team captain Betsy Smith. The 6-foot-2 Atlanta product has 56 kills and 18 blocks through 10 matches at middle blocker this season. But her impact is felt off the court as well. Smith said she embraces her role as a leader for the 11 underclassmen that make up the majority of the teams roster. They do some goofy things, Smith said. I have to put myself back in their shoes like, OK, I would have done ure out how they are, who they are as people, and thats been the fun part. Freshman Dana Backlund said she has increased her knowledge and love of the game just by watching the older players compete with the same mentality in practices as in games. Its such a big help watching them, she said. You learn so much in what really needs to be done. So its a great learning experience for all of us. Theyve all been great leaders (and) great examples for all of us. Boos praised Backlund and the rest of the freshman class for being so receptive and ready to follow in the footsteps of UFs veterans. He said this attitude has given the Gators success thus far, and his team is prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Were really steady, Boos said. Were composed. And from the ready to go.

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer One of the worst parts of the season is already in the past for the Gators. They havent played the toughest teams on their schedule, and their games havent had the highest stakes. But Florida came out of one of its tougher two-game road trips in recent memory without a blemish on its record and will only have to play one Southeastern Conference game on the road the rest of the season. at Texas A&M and Tennessee, the No. 14 said junior offensive lineman Kyle Koehne, last Saturday against Tennessee. Playing in The Swamp is a huge advantage, but yeah, I mean I think it was great training playing in such big stadiums and with such noise. It helps our communication, a bunch of things, and I think itll just give us more of an adule after three weeks. In 1992, Florida won its opener at home against Kentucky before then went on a seven-game winning streak ference away game, a 41-21 victory against Vanderbilt. The early road games, while daunting have paid dividends for Florida. We played two good teams and for our kids to go in there and come out with vicoffensive coordinator Brent Pease said. It take a bigger step of wanting to improve and The early road success also provided new starting quarterback Jeff Driskel with valuable experience. His passer rating improved with each contest, he has yet to throw an interception and he showed increased pocket awareness against the Volunteers, as he was not sacked after taking eight sacks against the Aggies. In both games we expected him to play Week 2 there at Tennessee. Im sure its more than anything, the players around him. Theyve played well, but they have now, instead of the uncertainty maybe of how he will play, they know hes going to posure to the hostile environments of Kyle Field and Neyland Stadium. He was forced to make adjustments at the line of scrimmage while dealing with relentless noise from the opposing crowds. Considering he was up to the challenge, making the same play calls at Hes keeping us in tempo and hes getthe ball off. Were not getting up there and letting the defense get aligned so much and waiting and being able to look and get their cleats in the ground and their eyes to the ball as much. Hes doing it much quicker and our guys are able to react and sometimes, Floridas opponent is not riding the same high as Saturday approaches. Kentucky fell to 1-2 last week with a 32-31 overtime loss at home to Western Kentucky. One of the few bright spots this season for the Wildcats has been quarterback Max passing. He has thrown eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy said the secondary is aware of the challenges the Wildcats will present, as well as what the Gators will have to do to handle them. passes. Theyve got a good passing game. As Purifoy and the rest of the defense should have plenty of crowd support on Saturday night. When asked if he feels like the road wins have caused more of a buzz around the didnt hesitate.
