In a press conference at the Alachua County Fairgrounds Wednesday morning, Gainesville Police spokesman Ben Tobias said police purchased a shovel and a roll of duct tape several days before Aguilar went missing. Tobias said police did not recover either of the items. He added that Aguilars last known cellphone activity was at 8:14 p.m. Sept. 20 when it was turned off. However, the phone has not been found. Aguilar, an 18-year-old biomedical engineering freshman from Miami, was photographed while walking into a Best Buy with Bravo, an 18-year-old student at Santa Fe College, to purchase Kanye Wests Cruel Summer CD at about 3 p.m. Sept. 20. Tobias said Bravo and Aguilar met at UF earlier that day. Police recovered the disc jewel case and wrapping, but not the CD. If the CD is found, it may lead us to some more information, Tobias said. Police named Bravo a person of interest Friday, after he said he fought with Aguilar and left him in a parking lot in the 4900 block of Northwest 13th Street. Police arrested Bravo on Monday on a charge of depriving a victim of medical care, which is a third-degree felony. Bravo remains in the Alachua County Jail with a $100,000 bond and hired a lawyer. through the wooded areas Wednesday near the fairgrounds, the Gainesville Regional Airport, the Airport Industrial Park and the State Road 121 corridor, but no new evidence was found, Tobias said. Carlos Aguilar, Christian Aguilars father, also spoke with reporters Wednesday. In lieu of the new information from police, Carlos Aguilar, 45, said he and his family will continue to look for his son. We still believe there is hope, he said.Suspect in missing student case bought shovel, tape JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff WriterComedian Tracy Morgan will join country artist Josh Turner at this years Gator Growl. The Growl, billed as the largest student-run pep rally in the world, will be um. The theme of the 89th Gator Growl is United We Growl, according to a news release. Morgan spent eight seasons as a regular cast member on Saturday Night Live. He stars as Tracy Jordan in NBCs Rock sitcom, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Gator Growls associate producer of communications Lauren Ettlinger, 21, said feedback from undergraduates, graduate students and alumni suggested attendees would want a comedian from a current television show. Morgans name came up frequently. Tracy was very excited about doing this show, and we thought he would be a great choice, Ettlinger said. Ettlinger would not disclose how much Morgan is being paid to appear. The Gator Growl lineup will also inskydiving team, the Dazzlers, UF cheerleaders and members of the Gators football team, according to the release. Tickets can be purchased at www.gatorgrowl.org.

Today marks the release of her new book, ten for an older audience. As of press time, the book was already at No. 1 on Amazons Top 100 Best Sellers list. Like many fans, freshman English and economics major Anna Morgan, 18, would love to see Rowling revisit the magical series that made her famous. She started reading the books in third grade and is now a chaser on the Quidditch team at UF. Morgan said she plans to read Rowlings new book eventually, but comparison is inevitable. According to the books description on Amazon, The Casual Vacancy is 512 pages of adult content, touching on themes like death, politics, drugs and crime. UF professor of English Brandon Kershner said hes interested in reading the novel, but hes in no rush. Kershner said he predicts some people who usually dont read serious novels will read The Casual Vacancy simply because they loved Rowlings Harry Potter series so much. I think it will do well by ordinary novel standards but nothing like Harry Potter standards, he said. Brooke Austill, a 22-year-old journalism junior, agreed. Since she is so famous, people will be reading it more to see what new aspects she is bringing to her writing, she said.Harry Potter author releases adult-themed book todaySEE SEARCH, PAGE 4 Rowling

The NCAA Division I Tennis Committee announced a proposal Aug. 13. On Aug. 23, the committee rescinded its plans to replace the third set with a 10point tiebreaker and shorten doubles matches from eightgame pro sets to six-game sets. On Sept. 13, the Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet defeated the portion of the committees proposal that would remove warm-ups with the opponent, reduce the time between doubles play and singles play from 10 minutes to five and shorten each changeover from 90 seconds to 60.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 CONSTRUCTION IS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. SAMANTHA BLACKAlligator Contributing WriterAfter about a year and a half of repair work, all 334 apartments at The dents, said J.D. Hatton, general manager. The apartment complex opened its doors to new residents Aug. 1 and is set to lease the remaining half of its complex in January. During an annual inspection in 2011, Hatton said inspectors found that the roof truss system needed to be adjusted, and the balconies needed better wrapping. The construction is restricted to the vacant north building. Although the second phase of apartments is set to lease Jan. 1, Hatton estimated that it might be ready sooner, because theyre ahead of schedule. against the original builders of the months after the apartments 2011 closing. According to Alligator archives, the repairs were said to be a result of the companies not building the apartments properly. The Bartram sued for breach of contract after water damage that was allegedly caused by construction defects Hatton said the lawsuit was resolved outside of court before it went to trial. UF law student Jennifer Harrington remembered being removed from her apartment at The Bartram when it closed in 2011. I think the fact that they spent a year with no residents just devoted to anything, reassuring that those issues wont arise again, she said.

The band features four members: Roy Gulville, bagpipes. According to the bands website, its music embraces the Highlanders Celtic music and the Lowlanders Anglo-Saxon tunes. The music combines traditional Scottish melodies with more modern rhythms. The band is very popular in Scotland, said Todd Taylor, the public relations associate for UF Performing Arts. It has received positive reviews from the media in the United States as well. UFPA takes pride in presenting performers from all over the world that UF students and residents in North Central Florida might otherwise not be able to see and experience, he said. Taylor expects the show to last about 90 minutes. He would not disclose the artist fee UFPA is paying for the Tannahill Weavers. He said the performance might approach a sellout, with about 1,700 people in attendance, including more than 1,000 students enrolled in the newly required humanities course What is the Good Life? Preparations for the performance are in full swing at the Phillips Center, including ensuring of a properly staffed venue. Jonathan Prevost, the event staff coordinator, is responsible for making sure events go smoothly. Prevost said the typical performance at the Phillips Center requires between 10 and 40 volunteer ushers. In addition to the volunteers, Prevost has scheduled an extensive team to work behind the scenes and a security staff of eight to 14 to promote safety at all times. With experience in much bigger and complicated performances, he is not concerned about Thursdays show. This should be a piece of cake, Prevost said. We always pull it together.Scottish band to perform tonightTaylor

Pedro was a boy who never demonish at the press conference. And at least to my knowledge, I never knew that one of the boys from Doral was involved in drugs or Carlos Aguilar said he saw the court vidand described him as not the same person he knew.

I know that in this circle of lies that hes thrown out, he said that its because of a love in Spanish. Carlos Aguilar said he also believed Bravo lied about the information he gave to police. Hes been telling lies right from the beginning, and right now, we know we cannot beCarlos Aguilar said he told his family that A reporter asked what his wifes reaction was to the new information about Bravo.

SEARCH, from page 1 THE MAKE A DIFFERENCE PROJECT AIMS TO HELP NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. KATIE CAMPBELLAlligator Contributing WriterFor some, the hammock tied between two trees in the atrium of the Architecture Building is nothing more than a place to kick back and take a breather. But this seemingly small addition is actually part of a much bigger picture. UF students in the Design Innovation course will participate in the Make a Difference project throughout the next two months. The project was introduced to the students Tuesday and encourages them to use their skills in small ways to make big differences, said Margaret Por tillo, a professor and chairwoman for the Department of Interior Design. The project is sponsored by the Interior Design Educators Council. This is the third year UF students are participating, implement solutions called design Before this semester, Portillo said, students had the option to address a need on campus. The hammock in the atrium was the result of one project. This semester, however, students will work only with She said the focus was put on organizations off campus so students could take their expertise and creativity into the community and increase the scope of their impact. In the past, Portillo said, this project has been done with interior design majors and nonmajors enrolled in Design time, the project is also being done with an online section. With the integration of the online section and a list of about 100 organizations for students to choose from, she said the Peggy Carr, the associate dean for the UF College of Design, Construction and Planning, helped coordinate students efforts in previous semesters. She said students need to be aware of how their design efforts later in their careers will affect people, and this project shows them how their work can make a real difference. Pamela Driza, a graduate student and Design Innovation instructor, said part of the importance behind this project is showing students what interior design is really about. Theres a misconception that its decsaid. We will not pick pillows, and we will not pick carpet in this semester. It Because Design Innovation is an introductory course, Driza said, the project is an opportunity for students to see how far they can push the envelope. Some students approach Driza with concerns about the extent of their creativity, but she said these are the students who often develop the most creative and impactful solutions. She said the goal is to submit about three of this semesters projects to the IDEC Social Responsibility Network, which will compile the ideas for exhibition at the IDEC conference and online. Because the point of the project is for students to make an impact on the organizations they work with, Portillo said she sees the online section as an opportunity for the program to grow and multiply the overall effect on the communities students select. At one point, students will have 36 hours to fully implement or physically install their design interventions within the organizations, which receive them for free. Portillo, who introduced the project to a section of Drizas students Tuesday, said she recognized the looks of trepidation on students faces when she mentioned the time limit, but it generally is not an issue. The strict 36-hour deadline and extended emphasis on the post-design evaluation, she said, requires students to use photographs and other forms of documentation to show how a design is incorporated and used within the organizations. These can be small solutions, but said.Design class seeks to helpR yan Jones / AlligatorHarmonious 13Rebecca Pethes, a Gainesville music teacher, sings during the Musica Vera Consort presented by the UF School of Music on Tuesday.

The lessons taught in todays classrooms will be seen in the years to come as students enter college and eventually the working world. Our public school system owes it to children to give them the tools for success. And an extra hour a week may be just what the kids need. Elementary school is a place where lessons and values are formed as children learn to share and express themselves. However, it is also a place where receiving an education is top priority. According to The Gainesville Sun, seven Alachua County schools are holding students an hour later in hopes of improving standardized test scores. In these 60 minutes, teachers can give more personal attention to struggling students. The bonus hour was created in response to the poor FCAT results from last spring. The 100 Florida elementary schools with the lowest scores would have more classroom time. Seven Alachua County schools made the cut. While this may seem like a punishment, it is the best thing the government can do for the children. More hours spent learning keeps children entertained longer and equals less time to cause trouble. In actuality, all elementary school students could greatly porting state programs that do not provide direct results, our state needs to invest in the future. That is, it needs to spend the money on education now so the educational system provides what it should for the thousands of children in Florida that it supports. Adding an hour to a school day creates a positive ripple effect. Not only would children learn more and have a more valuable education, but also parents would be able to work longer hours knowing that their children are in good hands. Many children with two employed parents attend afterschool programs, so lengthening the school day would only give them an educational boost and not create any kind of disturbance in their daily routines. nance after-school programs can add the extra hour of education. Therefore, the expense of lengthening a school day would not be as great. Children must work to receive their educations, but they must be met halfway. The decreased budgets for sports and arts programs is a true testament to what our society really considers important. Studies have proven time and time again that creative and physical outlets are necessary for growing children. The budget committee obviously does not give much credibility to such studies, as they continually cut funding for the programs. ditional zeros behind the front numbers send a shiver down my spine. If we are willing to leave the rising generations with this massive problem, they need a solid foundation for their education. Elementary school children of today will be taking over the broken economy of tomorrow. We owe it to them to give them an education that will serve as a foundation for the remainder of their lives. We live in a society focused on moving forward and always reaching for the newest, biggest and best things. Children who do not have a top education may not accelerate at this momentum, which potentially sets the pace for their entire lives. What are we teaching children if we cannot even grant them the education they rightfully deserve? Increasing funds for public education and ultimately giving students more time to learn will open an endless amount of possibilities for the next era. Abby Wolz is a health sciences freshman at UF. Her column appears on Thursdays.Party Pooper Gators should stay out of poolsWe just heard about a really cool new trend, and we couldnt wait to tell you about it. Its fun, its exciting and its just a little bit dangerous. Its gator pool parties! Oh, wait, its not just the normal pool parties that UF students have daily during the summer? You mean this new trend is of actual, live alligators being placed in pools with children who then smile and take their pictures with them? That sounds a bit too exotic for us. But thats what Alligator Attraction offers. The Tampa Bay Times explains how the workers take alligators smaller than 4 feet long to pool parties around the Tampa Bay area and allow guests to swim with them, hold them and take photos. Bob Barrett, the owner of Alligator Attraction, and his gator parties recently made the national news circuit, mostly because people are rightfully concerned about a myriad of safety issues. If youre 9, 10 or 11 years old, youve already had the jumparoo house, the bounce house, youve had the pizza party, youve had the clown party, Barrett said to ABC News. You get to have a pool party with a gator. Its a very popular party. Apparently, kids these days love it. They really were so into it, Chris Jones, a mother in the Tampa Bay area, said of the party she threw for her 8-year-old this summer. Only, she didnt tell her son or his guests about the gator party ahead of time. Imagine telling your mother that you were at a pool party with live alligators in the pool with you. Then, imagine never going to a birthday party again. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesnecessarily encourage people to try. But it is not a violation of the law, Martin said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Our main concern is the safety of the people and the animals. Although the alligators mouths are taped shut, and they are very young, that doesnt sound like an atmosphere that would be described as safe parenting. Fine, OK, we guess proper precautions are taken when putting reptiles in the same pool as kids. Quite frankly, these parties sound terrible, but maybe thats because were not 8-year-old boys who might love these kinds of things. They go really fast, Marshall Jones said when describing his awesome pool party this summer. Theyre like, really cool. Fair enough, Marshall. Fair enough. Maybe this trend isnt as bad as we thought. Its certainly better than butt chugging. Also, dont Google butt chugging. Erin Jester EDITOR Sarah Kinonen MANAGING EDITOR Sami Main OPINIONS EDITOR Abby Wolzopinions@alligator.org

Nick Wright UF student In this election, Americans are understandably most concerned about their pocketbooks their ability to put food on the table, to pay for gas, to cover the cost of college. Alas, the world does not pause while we attempt to put our houses in order. Over the past four years, China has grown stronger, Iran more nuclear and Islamic extremism more potent. The next commander in chief will likely have to decide whether we are victorious in Afghanistan, whether Iran goes nuclear and Unfortunately, on nearly every major issue impacting the security of the United States, President Obamas policies have made America less prepared for future threats. Obamas decision to set a pre-emptive, unconditioned expiration date on the American presence in Afghanistan has put the once christened the war in Afghanistan as both just and necessary, the president, by issuing the withdrawal deadline concurrent with a major troop increase, has allowed the Taliban to wait us out. In turn, it is unlikely that otherwise supportive Afghans would oppose them for fear of brutal Taliban retribution once we leave. By the end of a second Obama term, all American forces will be withdrawn from Afghanistan, but no American objectives will be achieved. Obama is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding in the Middle East, but he fails to mention that the ebb of victory is regressing as well. A second Obama term will likely also see the fanatical Iranian regime gain possession of nuclear weapons. Irans nuclear progress has accelerated on Obamas watch, putting one of the worlds worst regimes on the verge of acquiring the worlds most danger ous weapon. The Obama administration has also unreservedly embraced the quickly unraveling Arab Spring, calling the recent murder bumps in the road. Foreign policy begins with a simple dictum: Support your friends, defeat your enemies. Under Obamas leadership, the U.S. has become an unreliable ally and a weak-kneed adversary. Iran is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons, American embassies in the Arab world are under attack, defeat in Afghanistan is over the horizon and the U.S. is unprepared for the challenge of a strong China. While Americans are rightly concerned about the economy, they should also look beyond their kitchen tables and ask whether, over the last four years, America has become better prepared to deal with the more dangerous world that surrounds it.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterThe McKnight Brain Institute made a call, and artists answered. The institute asked UF art students to submit a proposal for an art piece related to the brain, said UF biology professor and School of Art + Art History scholar-in-residence Jamie Gillooly. He was the one to make the call, because his job as scholar-in-residence is to get scientists and artists to work together. Kelly Sharp, the administrative director of the institute, saw the four best proposals, Gillooly said. Sharp said the institute needed some artwork and decided to work with UF students. It was a desire to help out another college and to ultimately display something that was done by a UF student, he said. Sorina Vaziris proposal was chosen, and now, months later, it hangs at the back entrance of the institute. Were excited to have it, Gillooly said. She put a lot of thought and creativity into this and were all appreciative of it. The institute wanted a representation of neurons in a traditional way, but the 21-year-old graphic design seniors proposal had a more modern design. The 4-by-6-foot piece is made of wood, acrylic and plexiglass. It was a long, long journey, Vaziri said. using Adobe Illustrator, she made it into abstract circles and lines to look like a circuit board to represent neurons interacting. With a laser cutter, she etched the designs onto plexiglass. Finally, she connected everything and attached it together on a frame. Through modern technology and through research, weve been able to understand the human brain, Vaziri said. The institute gave Vaziri $500 as an award and paid for her supplies. Gillooly said this is one of a series of initiatives UF has started to combine science and art. Its a pretty rare collaboration, Gillooly said.

MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator WriterUF may be one of the countrys 50 most expensive schools for out-of-state students, but the cost of tuition is one of the best investments students can make, according to a ranking by Smart Money. The Wall Street Journal Magazine of Personal Business ranked UF second in terms of return on investment for 2009 graduates at 50 of the most expensive public and private U.S. colleges. The ranking was compiled by comparing young professionals starting tuition and fees to their median salary. The recent UF graduates reviewed from a salary database spent $73,476 on out-of-state tuition and fees over fours years and made a median salary of $46,200, earning 182 points on the magazines scale. Georgia Institute of Technology lead the ranking with 202 points. Smart Money also compared the starting tuition and median salaries of midcareer graduates from the UF class of 1997. In that category, the graduates make a median of $80,800 a year now and spent $26,850 on starting tuition and fees. Christina Rohan, a 28-yearold senior specializing in painting, said UF produces profesdeclare one salary to represent all graduates, calling the $46,200 median salary ambitious. Maybe, if youre an economics or business major, that might be a reasonable estimate, she said. And while Georgia Institute of Technology may seem like a more sound economic option for students, according to the rankings, its important to keep the lower cost of in-state tuition in mind, said economics professor Mark Rush. The ranking assumes students paid nancial aid. Even though theyre higher on the scale, youre still better off in-state, he said. Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, said most UF undergraduate students paid in-state When you take those two things into account, it makes the picture brighter, he said.UF ranked second in nation for graduation investment returnBrain institute combines science, art

At the opening of F.L.A. Gallery, at 10 N. Main St., descending shelves adorned with oranges covered the walls on one side of the room, while aquatic patterns embellished the stark white wall in a sea of blue, purple, green and black on the other. F.L.A. Gallery hosted its inaugural show, Rewilding, F.L.A., Saturday night, with an exhibit featuring works from artists John Orth, Kelie Bowman and Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels. The show was from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. According to its Facebook page, the gallery operates from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. In the past, opportunities to show art have been restricted to one-nightonly events, Orth said. Now, we have the opportunity to have this space with legitimate gallery hours. Orth said he plans to institute a residency program at the gallery in which fellow artists can receive living accommodations and a place to create and showcase their art. Many of my friends are artists and musicians, Orth said. A lot of them have done me the favor of showcasing my work. This is just an oppor tunity to return the favor. Bowman, a UF alumna, worked as a founding member of Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn, N.Y. for seven years before joining Orth in this new gallery venture.

BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAvenue WriterGainesville is about to feel the beats and lyrics from the heart of hip-hops newest member of royalty, Childish Gambino. Donald Glover, who raps by the name Childish Gambino, will perform on Flavet Field Friday at 7 p.m. for free. But Glover isnt just a rapper. The 29-year-old has been a member of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy, a writer for Rock, an actor on Community, a standup comedian and a movie star. Gambino said he got his rap pseudonym when he typed his name into a Wu-Tang Clan name generator. Tomorrow, Gambino will rap about everything from sex and fame to Spider-Man and his penchant for Asian women. Behind the lyrics is usually a pulsing electronic beat molded to match his high-pitched voice, but hes been known to rap over indie rock hits by artists Sleigh Bells, Grizzly Bear and Neon Indian, too. sic video to his song Freaks and Geeks off of his EP. The video, which has more than 11 million hits on YouTube, was directed by Dan Eckman. Eckman has worked with Glover since his days on Derrick Comedy and and the groups movie Mystery Team, which premiered in 2009. The video shows Gambino dancing alone in a warehouse. As usual, he doesnt shy away from vulgarity: E.E. cumming on her face, yeah thats poetry in motion. He graduated from New York University in 2006 with a degree in dramatic writing, and it shows. all you got left is your ego. Listen for the single from his Camp. This hit is high-tempo throughout. It starts with alarms and cuts right into his fast-paced and vulgar lyrics that are too good to deny. In the song, he claims to be the best black actor who raps while gaining respect from other rappers. Raps stepfather, yeah you hate me, but you will respect. And during the song, he shows he is OK with controversial lyrics. Made the beat then murdered it, Casey Anthony. Different from most Gambino songs, B---h, look at me now from his mixtape I Am Just A Rapper, covers Grizzly Bears song Two Weeks, an indie rock hit. Gambinos nasally lyrics shine through the free and happy rock song with a choir. Ima try to make my street cred stack up. I mean Im rapping over Grizzly Bear, what the f--k? The song is an amalgam of oneliners weaved together to create an amazing mash-up of indie rock and underground rap. These rappers need ER like their Charlie Park. Go hard like my suits made by Tony Stark. This kind of music makes your balls drop, Dick Clark. Gambino uses subtlety and raw emotion to create a track to chill with. Ill always be childish. Call me Maggie Simpson. As soon as you lose sight of Gambinos actual rap skill and think hes full of sophomoric and cartoonish d--k jokes, he comes back with songs that showcase has. Gambino felt inspired by Common on his track entitled Im On It, from his third independent album, Culdesac. The song, and the whole album, has a light and airy feel to it, with sincere lyrics about Glovers life over the choir-like sentiments of the album. Even if you arent a Childish Gambino poindexter, you should go to the concert even if it rains. 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 Courtesy to the Alligator / Glassnote RecordsDonald Glover, who raps under the stage name Childish Gambino, will perform on Flavet Field for free Friday with opening act Hoodie Allen.

Orths contributions were also aligned with the exhibitions overall nature aesthetic. His secand various wildlife species. Bowmans time spent at a marina in St. Petersburg contributed to the water and optical illusions in her pieces for the exhibit. A mural covered a majority of her section and served as one of the exhibitions more integral pieces. Her progression of the water theme from piece to piece peaked the interest of guests like architecture senior John Richardson. Everyone is just trying to understand what the artist is trying to say, Richardson, 22, said. Whether youre wrong or right, youre still asking questions that are making the imaginative side of your mind stronger. Orth said Fels hexagonal wood structures incorporated wood reclaimed from renovations on the gallerys building neighbor, The Top. Fels work was placed near the center of the room, bridging the gap between Orth and Bowmans respective walls. Allison Garnsey, a second-year chemistry graduate student, noted the communal atmosphere at Rewilding, F.L.A. Gainesville is such a small, unique place, and its really cool to see these shows reiterate that, Garnsey said. and out of the gallery, compelled to stay by the allure of free food, a sociable atmosphere and walls adorned with decorative oranges.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 13 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Dear Mediocre Advice, My boyfriend and I have been boning for a while now, and he just started spending the night. I have really bad gas when I sleep, but he imagines girls as sweet / cute. I try to be, but my farts arent. Sometimes, the gas is so bad he wakes up and asks what the smell is. I blame it on the dog. Problem is, I dont have a dog, but I bought a food and water bowl to keep up the lie. He just realized I dont have a dog, and its been three weeks. What do I do? Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I slept with a good friend once, and I regret it. I have a boyfriend who lives 3,000 miles away and expects me to move in with him. The sex with the friend was awkwardly terrible and didnt mean anything to me. The boyfriend is amazing at sexy time. We love each other, and I dont want to lose him. Should I confess my one-time mistake? And should I remain friends with my good friend, who still has feelings for me, to soften the blow of rejection? Dear Friend, Please never say sexy time again. Youre not a bad person, but you shouldnt be with your boyfriend. Something made you screw around with your friend who you claim is awkwardly terrible in bed. Your boyfriend may expect you to move in with him, but you dont want to. He isnt someone you feel passionate enough about to move 3,000 miles for. Cheating is a clear indication that the relationship needs to end, whether you realize it now or later. It doesnt matter if you tell your boyfriend, but it matters if you choose to stay with him. Thats a complicated choice that not even Me diocre Advice can make. As for the friend who apparently sucks at sex if he really wants to be with you, you cant play with his emotions. Make his life easier, and give him some space. Dear Friend, There are a few simple explanations why guys just quit talking to girls. He probably just lost interest. Its crappy that he didnt give you a straight answer as to why you are no longer boning, but dont let it bring you down. If you just want his attention, you could do a lot of dumb and embarrassing stuff, but Im sure thats not what you mean. Since you two are at the same bar all the time, it wouldnt be weird for you to walk up to him and started a conversation. Worst case scenario: You have a dry conversation that ends awkwardly. Best case scenario: He goes home with you, and you piss off your neighbors with the noise. Make a move before too much time passes. Dear Mediocre Advice, October is quickly approaching, and I need Hal loween costume ideas. Im a girl, and in Mean Girls tradition, I want something a little slutty. Any suggestions? Dear Friend, Screw the Mean Girls tradition. Being slutty is the easy way out. Just take any costume, remove 50 percent of the clothing, and boom its slutty. I did that freshman year. I tried to be a sexy ver sion of The Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz, and guess what it looked awful. People thought I was a Hersheys Kiss or an alien. Why dont you be something cool and original, like a dinosaur, Quail Man/Dog, the ass-half of a horse, the moon or sun, a Mormon, one of the Inglorious Bastards, any Tarantino character, a superhero, Jessica Rabbit or Ryan Goslings abs? When I see a sexy version of respectable profession on Halloween, it makes me want to boo. Past a certain age at which you should know better, it just screams daddy issues. Dear Friend, You should buy a dog. Not only because youre too deep in your lie, but because who doesnt want the companionship of a dog? Dogs are bet ter than boyfriends, girlfriends and most people. You should still tell your boyfriend the truth at some point. Until then, keep a window open and blame the outside smells if you really cant own up to your unfortunate foul truth. For the long run, I highly recommend that you change your diet and Google Why do my farts smell like sin? Dear Mediocre Advice, I met a boy, and we were instantly attracted to one other. He seemed to really like me, but after two weeks, he stopped talking to me. Since this is Gainesville, I see him way too often. Also, he works/hangs at my favorite bar, and whenever I see him he com pletely ignores me. What should I do to get his attention back?

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG CorrectionA story in Wednesdays edition of the Alligator incorrectly described the progression of proposed rules Redshirt senior Betsy Smith is season as a member of the Gators volleyball team. See story, page 19. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel (6) attempts a pass while being hit by a UK JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer The bye week seems to be the only thing that can slow Jeff Driskel. Since earning the starting job against Bowling Green on Sept. 1, the sophomore quarterback has improved each week. After four games, Driskel ranks second in the Southeastern Conference with a 69.6 completion percentage. Driskels quick development has played a major role in Floridas 4-0 start this season. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said the Oviedo native stands out among quarterbacks he has coached during his 22year career. Some of the guys Ive worked with, hes ahead of what theyve done on a weekto-week basis, Pease said. Sometimes, its maybe right on par. I dont think hes behind anybody. Each week hes done a better job. While Driskel has impressed early, both he and UF coaches admitted that the 6-foot-4 quarterback needs to improve several aspects of his game before playing LSU on Oct. 6. Driskels scrambling ability is one of his strengths, but it has created problems for the Gators at times this season, often resulting in sacks. Instead of getting rid of the ball when facing the pass rush, he would step out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage. The issue proved most prominent when Driskel ran out of bounds for a loss twice against Texas A&M, accounting for two of the eight sacks he took in Floridas 20-17 victory in College Station, Texas, on Sept. 8. Three days later, Pease said only two of the sacks were the result of poor protection by the offensive line. stinct, Im not watching the rush, Driskel said of his tendency to scramble. If you get caught watching the rush, youre never going to be able If you look down at the rush and then look up at the receiver, youre going to be late and throwing into bad windows. So tive thing, and its just been something Ive been doing the whole time Ive been playing the game. Driskel has been sacked three times since the Gators win against the Aggies, but Pease noted that Driskels pocket presence has improved. One of the things I think hes done a great job of is just his comfort zone in the pocket trusting the protection, Pease said. Then starting to use his feet when he has to. He hasnt mastered it by any means, but hes gotten a lot better at it on a week-to-week basis. Driskel added: Youve got to give the O-line trust, and youve got to trust them and be able to stand there and show them that theyre doing a nice job and giving me time. I felt Driskel improving as year progresses UF WIDE RECEIVER EARNING ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer Redshirt sophomore wide receiver catch on with the Gators. After two years as little more than a spring-practice standout, Dunbar is second on the team with 10 receptions so far in 2012. He caught a 19-yard touchdown in double coverage against Kentucky on Saturday and has become a more complete receiver this season. Hes smiling (and) having fun, Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Hes making plays on third down (and) makes blocks. Hes out there to compete. He caught a touchdown pass. Any time you catch a touchdown pass, Im sure youre happy about that. Dunbar entered his redshirt freshman season with coaches and teammates raving about his ability. Unfortunately for the Gators, Dunbars size and speed Dunbar had more than two receptions only once in 2011 against Florida State on Nov. 26. He made his games of the regular season. In four straight games against Kentucky, Alabama, LSU and Auburn, he failed to record a catch. At 6 feet, 1 inch and 189 pounds, Dunbar is Floridas tallest wide receiver to record a catch this season. He has three catches in three of Floridas four games and has 26 more yards than he had at this point last season. Hes getting a good feel, Pease said. And the thing about it is when that happens, with guys as young as they are, their personalities start to [come out]. When they have fun, but theyre still competing, you can see that that stuff carries over. When youre not having fun and its not working, youre Dunbar assuming bigger roleEND OF GREGULATION Andre Debose grinned from ear to ear as he celebrated on EverBank Field at the end of the 2011 season. Florida had just beaten Ohio State 24-17 in the Gator Bowl, and Debose hoisted the Most Valuable Player trophy high above his head. The hopes for his 2012 Although Debose caught only one pass for 9 yards in the Gator Bowl, his 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown swung the game. The effort capped a season in which he averaged 27 second in the nation if he had caught enough passes to qualify. But thats partly the point: He didnt have enough catches. In 12 games he caught only 16 passes, four of which went for touchdowns. The common perception became that if quarterbacks targeted Debose more in 2012, he could become the playmaker Florida desperately wanted. The new season is here, but those targets arent coming. And Will Muschamp is right for playing it that way. this season due to issues with consistency and intensity in practice. Thirteen players on UFs roster have a catch this season. Debose is not one of them. In fact, hes been targeted just once, a play-action bomb in Floridas season opener that Jacoby Brissett overthrew. the opening play against Tennessee, but calling it a carry is misleading. Matt Jones took the handoff from Jeff Driskel and pitched the ball to Debose on the reverse. The ball bounced off of Deboses hands, and he fell on the fumble to avoid disaster. In the second quarter, Debose ran for 8 yards on a jet sweep. He promptly returned to his spot on the bench. Those three plays have been the extent of his offensive involvement this season. Muschamp said Deboses prolonged absence is a result of him not giving consistent effort. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Deboses ability to learn the playbook isnt the Benching Debose right move Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca SEE DRISKEL, PAGE 19 SEE GREG, PAGE 19 SEE NOTES, PAGE 19 Some of the guys Ive worked with, hes ahead of what theyve done on a week-to-week basis. ...
