Charlie Brown may have once feared the Environmental Protection Agency after he bit a tree, but at UF, he and the Peanuts cast have come to teach visitors about caring for the environment. The Peanuts Naturally: Charlie Brown and Friends Explore Nature exhibit will kick off from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The exhibit focuses on Charles Schulzs exploration of the natural world through his Peanuts comic strips, said Tamara Herchel, the museums marketing and public relations coordinator. It includes samplings from his comic strips and videos that touch on topics like the universe, elements and gardening. On Saturday, the George A. Smathers Libraries collection of vintage Peanut memorabilia will be on display, Herchel said. The Sequential Artists Workshop will give demonstrations on drawing and inking comic strips, and representatives from UFs School of Ants project will explain to attendees how to participate in ant research in their own backyards. I like to call it edu-tainment, Herchel said. The exhibit will run from Saturday to Jan. 2. Admission is free this weekend for UF students. Paige Pitisci, 19-year-old telecommunication sophomore, grew up listening to her dad read Peanuts to her, so shes excited for the exhibit. Using the comic strip will be an enjoyable way for people to learn about science and the environment and bring back childhood memories, Pitisci said.Peanuts nature exhibit to open at the UF Florida MuseumBoth parties want more scooter parkingSchulz versity Avenue this weekend when this years Pride Festival hits the streets. The annual Gainesville Pride Festival will take place from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. At noon, a parade will start at Wild Iris Books, 802 W. University Ave. For an hour, marchers University Avenue. By 1 p.m., Diddley Community Plaza. Patrons can expect drag queen performances and live performances by local bands. Food vendors will be present and other activities for children and adults alike. Every part of the community that is LGBT-friendly will be involved, said Bridget Siegel, president of UF Pride Student Union. The Pride Community Center of North Central Florida hosts the festival, and organizations like Pride Student Union will volunteer at the event to spread awareness. This is our time to shine, said Siegel, a 20-year-old religion junior. Lauren Hannahs, UF director of LGBT Affairs and board member at the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said about 75 vendors participated in the Annual Pride Festival to celebrate equality UF Student Government political parties started campaigning this week for Tuesdays and Wednesdays elections. Both the Students Party and the Swamp Party appeared around campus and provided students with information about their campaign platforms and party messages. This semester, both parties have new platform points generated by student input. For example, the Students Party aims to bring more options where of-age students can buy alcohol on campus. Students Party campaign manager Dave Bradshaw said many UF students are old enough to consume alcohol responsibly, including more than 15,000 graduate and professional students. Currently, students who can drink legally can only buy alcohol at the Orange & Brew. It seems to be a little harsh, Bradshaw said. One of the points on the Swamp Partys platform is to install sunscreen dispensers in Ben ty spokesman Daniel Landesberg said its a completely new idea. He said party leadership was sitting around brainstorming platform points, and a lot of them had sunburns from a football game. It can really prevent potential skin damage and certainly be berg said. Both parties platforms said they hope to establish more scooter parking on campus and increase funding for student organizations. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.

The Emergency Alert System now gives the president, state government and local government the ability to broadcast about natural and man-made disasters or lifethreatening situations, according to a county press release. will have direct access to the system. Previously, the county had to contact the National Weather Service in Jacksonville to get updates about severe weather, said Dave Donnelly, county emergency management director. He said employees have been through training, and all proper paperwork has rect access to the emergency system. After Sept. 11, there needed to be a way for the president to contact the whole nation simultaneously, he said. The Emergency Alert System can only broadcast through television and radio. In case of an actual emergency, a website and phone number are given to citizens for direction on what to do. The system has been around since the 1950s, but due to technology issues and an outdated platform, it was unavailable to the county. Alachua County updated its system, Emergency Alert System. Another way for citizens to get infor mation in cases of an emergency is the CodeRED system. CodeRED allows people to sign up to gency Alert System sends. It will send information through subscribers mobile and home phones, email and hearing-impaired systems. In this day and age, everyone has a cellphone on them, said Mark Sexton, county spokesman.

2011 festival. This year, Hannahs said she is expecting about 100 vendors. Gainesville has a thriving pride festival, Hannahs said. Its an indication that the local LGBT community is thriving in itself. Hannahs said protesters often come out for the festival, but safety volunteers and police will be present as a precautionary measure. The LGBT pride festival isnt limited to the LGBT community, she said. Sometimes pride festivals get a bad rep, but ours has a lot of representation throughout the community, Hannahs said. The festival is for folks from all walks of life. Bobby Brito, a 19-year-old political science junior, said the festival is a great experience. Pride shows people that arent necessarily out yet that there is a large system of support for everyone within Gainesville, he said.

Asghar wrote that the Unite Par ty had been replaced by the Swamp Party and most of its members had been in the Unite Party, which Williams argued was false. We created this party as a new party for the University of Florida, Williams said.

If new leadership emerges and starts a new party, and that party doesnt want to be associated with the old party for any reason, they shouldnt be, said Commission Chairman Wes Stephens. The commission unanimously ruled a cease-and-desist on the issue. But this rule cant stop people from stating fact, such as saying a former Unite Party senator was a former Unite Party senator. Fortunately, I believe in University of Floridas system of justice, and well appeal it, Chessman said after the hearing. Contact Samantha Shavell at sshavell@alligator.org.

The fourth annual Academic Sports Challenge will bring in money to the George A. Smathers Libraries for every touchdown scored in the season. Students, faculty and alumni can pledge dollars per touchdown to donate to the library system. At the end of the 12-game season, donors pay their donations based on the number of touchdowns scored, said Bar bara Hood, UF library spokeswoman. Students can join the chalpledge form, which can be found at the UF libraries website. Pledges can range from 25 cents to more than $100, depending on what the donor wants to contribute. Students can join the challenge at any time during the season, Hood said. The good thing about it is people can also choose where they want their money to go to, she said. Donors can choose to have collections and libraries, she said. The pledge sheet has several collections and libraries listed, but donors can write in want to direct their donation toward. Since the program started, it has been expanded to include basketball as part of The Florida Basketball 3-point Challenge, which works similarly to the Academic Sports Challenge. Donors can pledge money for every successful 3-point shot made during the regular basketball season for the mens and womens teams. The funds we raise from the challenge are for all the students, said Samuel Huang, library associate dean for advancement and development. It is to meet all the students learning needs. Richard Carris, a UF alumnus and member of the Library Leadership Board, presented the idea for the challenge four years ago. While watching the 2009 BCS championship game, the idea came to his then 13-yearold son Brent. I thought it would be smart to have some sort of donation to the school for every touchdown, said Brent, now 17.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 NOELIA TRUJILLOAlligator Contributing WriterUF students can now bowl against someone across the country without having to travel far ther than the Reitz Unions Game Room. nation to offer XBowling, a social mobile application that combines traditional bowling with technology. It allows bowlers to connect with players worldwide, said Bill parent company, Sports Challenge Network. Students can download the app for free on any smartphone. XBowling is bowling without boundaries, he said. We eliminate the physical and time boundaries to allow people to bowl with someone around the world. Sports Challenge Network set up a server in the Reitz Unions Game Room that reads live scores and transmits them to users mobile devices within seconds, said Fasig, 49. All users have to do is download the app to their smartphones, set up an account and register their location to see their game live, he said. Most challenges are free, but some may cost up to 10 cents. Not only can users play their opponents live, but if a competitor is only able to bowl later in the week or month, the scores can be recorded at separate times, Fasig said. For the later bowler, the score will show up as if the game is live, with the competitors score showing up frame by frame. Game Room manager Char lotte Dare said she thought using the app was a good way to stay in touch with someone without physically being with them. I think its the next big thing thats happening, she said. I think it brings a little bit of newness to bowling, a little bit of excitement to bowling. Dare said she hopes having the app at UF will increase the amount of Game Room bowlers. Philosophy junior Brett Palaschak, 20, checked his XBowling app as he bowled his third game Wednesday in lane 15 of the Game Room. I dont really understand it fully yet, he said, but Ive been using it to keep track of my averages. Palaschak said he would challenge people once he learns more about the app. Fasig said he hopes UF can take the lead using the app, eventually challenging other schools, doing intramurals or even conducting char ity events via XBowling. What I love and see is people getting excited about the ability to connect with anyone in the world, Fasig said.UF is first university in nation to offer bowling applicationAlexandra Sanchez / AlligatorTyler Wells, 18-year-old biology freshman, sets up for a strike at the Reitz Union Game Room on Thursday.

Stay safe this weekend, Gators, and try not to get swamped!A love letter to Alyssa for her kindnessFor those who actually read my column (thank you!), you know I devote it to progressive politics. Well, you wont be hearing about that today. You may be surprised to learn that I do indeed have many other interests, one of which is dancing my ass off at of Montreal shows. So Im going to tell you a little story. After a miserable weekend of being sick and then not being sick and then getting sick again and hating myself for getting behind in my coursework and feeling like an incompetent idiot, I allowed myself to be excited at the prospect of seeing one of my favorite bands at the Reitz Union for free the one and only of Montreal. If youve never listened to of Montreal, imagine dancing on the surface of the sun while tripping on acid. I arrived for an afternoon class on Tuesday and decided to line up later that evening for the show. Before I had the chance to close the door behind me, I saw four words that crushed my mood further than I thought it I had no idea they gave out tickets on Friday! I went out of town over the weekend and thought you only had to show up and line up for the concert. Needless to say, I was wrong. Despite an enjoyable class, I couldnt get over the disheartening thought in the back of my mind that I missed out on seeing one of my all-time favorite bands for free. I had seen them once before, but it was without a doubt one of the most fun shows Id ever been to. At one point, the frontman, head to toe in shaving cream. Enough said. After leaving class, I called my very good friend Summer on the phone to vent my frustration. Being the amazing person she is, she encouraged me to go to the Reitz and try to get in anyway. Unlike her, Im not optimistic. I also gave my friend David an earful. I considered trying to buy a ticket from someone in line, but I realized I left most of my cash in my car. I had two one-dollar bills in my wallet. By this time, Ive given up all hope. David suggested the same thing as Summer: Just go and $20 to buy a ticket off of someone in line. I hesitated, but he convinced me. large crowd and line had already formed for the show. I waved the $20 around and repeatedly No hope. Most of them had already gotten their tickets punched and wristbands secured. No one responded. Most everyone looked at me like I was a martian. I was giving up hope again. Why would anyone want to sell their ticket? I was just going to leave. But then a girl walked up to me and presented her ticket. I was about to give her the $20. She said, Just take it for She told me shes a member of RUB. Someone randomly gave her the ticket, and she didnt need it. I couldnt believe my luck there was no way this was happening. She handed me the ticket, marked it with her hole puncher and another RUB member put a wristband around my wrist. I was in! I asked the girl for her name, and its Alyssa. I gave her a hug and thanked her. Thank you, Summer, for your optimism. Thank you, David, for your encouragement. And thank you, Alyssa, for your generosity. If youre reading this, I want you to know I love you, and I will never in my life forget you. Now you can understand why I took a brief departure from my usual politics during these columns; with a little optimism and positivity, the world goes round.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7In a world buzzing over cellphones and high-speed Inter net, ultra-fast networking, social media and text messaging, one can easily believe that he or she is always in the know. We crave news and thirst for more information. We desire it now ... Well, here it goes: My name is Erik, and Im Pedro Bravos roommate. Pedro was a randomly assigned roommate, and he seemed like a pretty nice kid. He was quiet, thoughtful and courteous. Three or four days a week he just wasnt here, but when he was, he kept to himself. He was like a ghost. He stayed in his bedroom and always shut his door. When eat a quick snack or make himself something to eat. He rarely washed his dishes. He enjoyed watching Futurama, Family Guy and really anything on Comedy Central. He was very artistic and enjoyed keeping a journal. Pedro never said much about it, but I was curious, so I would look. I saw pictures of hearts; red and pink hearts, shattered hearts, hearts in tiny pieces, broken hearts. Next to his illustrations there was usually a caption perhaps even a poem. Several reporters have asked me if his behavior before the incident was odd, suspicious or unusual. It wasnt. It was Pedro. I lived with him, but I hardly knew him. came by was Friday night between 11 p.m. and midnight. I had just cleaning up, when I heard a knock at the door. I told a friend to answer it. dro was home (which he was not), he called me downstairs. After 30 to 40 minutes of interviewing, I had so many unanswered questions. Was my roommate OK? Was he safe? Was he missing? Or was he a suspect in a potential homicide? Was he dangerous? Should I feel threatened should I leave? Im still here. Ive been asked off the record if I think he did it. Sadly, I know as much as you do. I dont know either. But nevertheless, heres what I do know: I saw Pedro for the last time Thursday afternoon, between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. I was sitting at my living room table eating lunch when he came out of his bedroom. He was wear depicted in that surveillance photo taken at Best Buy: dark, navy-blue jeans and a black shirt. He said goodbye and left. I stayed at the apartment until 5 p.m., when I left for an event at UF. Pedro hadnt returned. After the event was over, I came back to my apartment, and by then it was between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. According to my other roommate, Pedro came back between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. He didnt stay long. He walked quickly up the stairs and disappeared into his bedroom no hello, nothing. walking back down the stairs with his backpack. My roommate vaguely remembers what he was wearing, or if he appeared to be dirty, muddy or sweaty. I keep the apartment very clean, vacuuming almost every day; I didnt see anything suspicious. Because of my tough schedule, I didnt go to sleep until early Friday morning 4 a.m. Still no Pedro. That Thursday, Pedro put a question on the little white board attached to our fridge asking how much the tickets were for Satur days football game. I answered the question. By the time I woke up Friday sleep, there was a new question, a question again asked by Pedro: How many tickets can students buy? Pedro. In other words, Pedro came home between the hours of 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. and left. Christian Aguilar was last seen at 6 p.m. on Thursday near Streits Motorsports on Northwest 13th Street. His cellphone was shut off at about 8 p.m., according to reports. tives, forensics units and reporters have been in and out of our apartment. A receipt for a shovel, dated Sept. 16, was found in Pedros bedroom. Theyve been back and forth, searching for anything, clues, evidence that could lead them to the whereabouts of Christian. On Saturday evening, after returning from the football game, I found something suspicious in our washing machine. that he was wearing that last time I saw him. It was washed, but it was still damp. Ive been asked a lot about his bedroom what it looked like, what was in it. It was usually messy, but the last and most startling thing I saw was a quote on his white board, which read: Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above ones head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

The routes will change from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Routes 27 and 6 will only make one trip during the course of that hour, but the routes will use differ ent roads, which could make the ride 10 to 15 minutes longer. Routes 15 and 5 will make six trips and will be about 15 minutes longer than usual. All of the routes can be seen on the homepage of RTSs website under the Pride Parade Detours section. RTS tries to provide notices about any changes in information about a week before they occur, said Chip Skinner, RTS spokesman. We try to give enough of an advance notice so people can adjust their schedules, he said. Patrons can also check the RTS Facebook page, or use its online tracking application to see the changes. About 55,000 people ride RTS buses per weekday, about 29,000 ride on Saturdays and 7,700 ride on Sundays, Skinner said. He said about 75 percent of riders are students. Richard Israel, 19, takes the No. 5 from the Rosa Parks RTS Downtown Station to get to his job at Gator Cor ner Dining Center. He said the rerouting would make getting to work harder, but hed still be taking the bus on Satur day. Its my only transportation, so Im still going to take it, he said. I just have to walk a little farther.

Four bus routes will be rerouted on Saturday. JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterIan Elsner was 8 years old when he learned how to ride a unicycle. A family that unicycles together, stays together, his dad always said, and although Elsner has fallen hundreds of times over the years, hes still unicycling. Elsner, 23, is hoping to Gainesville Unicycle Festival. Its scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. today on the North Lawn and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Roughly 20 to 30 unicyclists ranging from UF, Florida State University and University of Central Florida students to unicycle club members from Jacksonville and Sarasota will participate in the event. The festival is free and open to spectators. The goal is to create a space where the best unicyclists in the state can compete, learn and have fun with each other, said Elsner, the former president of Objects in Motion, UFs juggling club. Today, the unicyclists will try to stay balanced as they pedal during a game called UniBash, which is similar to tal arts and sciences graduate student. On Saturday, spectators can watch participants on the North Lawn compete in games like hockey or polo, jousting, slow and fast races and even sumo wrestling all per formed on a unicycle. Trophies will be awarded to the winners of each competition, and all the unicyclists will ride to a restaurant downtown. The goal of this is to start a unicycling tradition here in Gainesville and to make this festival an annual thing, Elsner said. He said being with a group of unicyclists is a lot more enjoyable than unicycling alone. If you are in a group of six to 10 people going down University Avenue looking for a place to eat, you can joke about the stares, Elsner said. Shelley MacLean, who graduated from UF in 2009, has been unicycling for more than a year. She said she is excited to get together with others at the festival. Its an awesome feeling when everyone shares something in common, she said. MacLean, 26, said some people are even able to solve a Rubiks Cube while unicycling. Anything you can do on two feet, you can do on a unicycle, she said. Journalism senior Jenn Riek said she almost had a collision on her bicycle with a unicycle. I dont think bicycles and unicycles mix too well, she said. Its a funny story. But Riek, 21, said she admires unicyclists balancing skills and courage. They are brave because Ive tried unicycling, and its extremely hard, she said. You cant be afraid to fall.Gainesville Unicycle Festival to be held today on North Lawn If you are in a group of six to 10 people going down University Avenue looking for a place to eat, you can joke about the stares.Ian Elsner unicyclistLOcaCALDowntown bus routes will change during Gainesville Pride Parade JORDAN ROBBINSAlligator Contributing WriterA study released last week by an electronics warranty service provider estimated that Americans have spent $5.9 billion on lease in 2007. SquareTrade surveyed more than 2,000 iPhone users and then combined the cost of repairs, replacements and insurance deductibles for broken iPhones. Younger iPhone users are more likely to damage their phones, according to the study. Half of iPhone users under 35 have had an accident. Addie Alter, an 18-year-old nursing freshman, is among them. She has damaged her iPhone three times. Each time, Alter chose to get the phone repaired, which has cost her more than $200 total. I would freak out, she said. It stressed me out the entire day. it cost money. Instead of visiting an Apple store to repair her phone, Alter used the iHospital above Pita Pit in the UF Plaza. Alter said she chose to go there because it was cheaper and more convenien, and because there is no Apple store in Gainesville. The study found that the need for iPhone repairs most often results from being dropped. Immersing iPhones in liquid came in at No. 2. iHospital Mac surgeon James Franklin Baldwin said about 80 percent of customers are students. He said the top reasons for iPhone repair visits are cracked screens, which typically cost age, which costs about $50. Baldwin said he wasnt sur prised by the survey results. No time before now have people had pieces of glass in their pockets all the time, he said.iPhone users are dropping some serious cash for repairsYoung users more likely to damage phones It stressed me out the entire day.

ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterThe Gator Wesley Foundations campus pastor believes it was a BB shot from a passing vehicle that shattered its glass door Wednesday night. The majority of the United Methodist campus ministry was upstairs worshipping when the left door punched into its upper right corner, leaving a web of cracks across the pane. Early childhood education senior Emily Minter was studying alone in the lobby when she heard the thwack behind her. It sounded like when someone jerks on the door when its locked, the 21-year-old said. When she turned around, Minter noticed the cracked glass. She could hear it splitting as she approached. One crack would go, then it just kept cracking, she said. Minter fetched former staff member Jessica Jollie, a the pastor, who then called the police. Narcie Jeter, 32, the executive director and campus pastor, said there were no security cameras. Jollie said she didnt think it was intentional toward the church. Because the door remained intact, she wasnt too worried about security. If someone wanted to get in here, there wasnt much stopping them, she said. It was just a little girl down here by herself. manager, said she spoke with multiple companies on Thursday about replacing the door. The damages were originally estimated by the ministry at about $2,000. A police report put the amount to be about $500. We budget for maintenance, but it would have been wonderful to use that money for the ministry, student outreach or a mission trip, Jeter said. We just want to make sure the students are as safe as possible. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator.org.Campus ministry front door shattered

The African spiny mouse could become a new base for regenerative medicine research in mammals, said Ashley Seifert, a 36-year-old Department of Biology postdoctoral fellow at UF who worked on the study. After hearing about a mouse that could shed its skin to evade predators, Seifert packed his bags for Kenya in May 2009 to begin trials at the Mpala Research Centre. A mouse losing its skin doesnt make any sense, he said. To locals, it was a novelty and not really something to look into. The researchers punched holes into the mices ears to test the ear tissues regenerative abilities. The team of six, which included Seifert, found that the African mices hair follicles regrew in the wounds. He said in a regular lab mouse, 10 days of growth would produce a scar but leave the original hole. The African spiny mice generated new cartilage and a pretty good reconstitution of tissue. Seifert said the mices ability to regenerate ear tissue is similar to salamanders ability to regrow limbs damaged by predators. However, this is rarely seen in mammals. ogy, and wounding and scarring in mammals, he said. The hope is future research on these mice will lead to human therapies down the road, Seifert said. Seifert, who usually works with amphibians, said he was surprised multiple times during the process. Going into the project, it was like This sounds really interesting, but we just a series of Wow, this is real.

Gillislee ranks second in the Southeastern Conference with 402 rushing yards this season.Sturgis Up for Academic Honor William V. Campbell Trophy. The award recognizes the nations top football scholar-athlete. On Thursday night, the NFL welcomed back referees who ate professional football games. What a concept! With the exception of Seattle, pigskin fans across the nation rejoiced with a powerful fervor the Earth has not felt since referee Ed Big Guns Hochulis most recent bench press. We like our referees ripped and swole, thank you very much. Hochuli 2012! The referees may be shaking off some rust this weekend, but we here the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column are just hitting our stride. Now, onto the picks! Ohio State (+3) will make gamblers everywhere happier because... While a reported $300 million changed hands in Vegas due to the replacement referee debacle in Seattle, there isnt any shady exchange of money at Ohio State. Oh wait, thats why the No. 14 Buckeyes arent participating in bowl season this year. Ohio State has nothing to lose. Braxton Miller will be the difference. Hell extend his darkhorse Heisman campaign with the kind of balanced running and passing performance the Urban Legend likes from his quarter backs. ADAM PINCUSMichigan State (-3) will channel their inner Hochuli because... Football is all about big guns, and Sparty has Brutus vastly out-broliced. The overrated Miller hasnt seen a defense the caliber of Michigan State, which ranks in the top 15 nationally against both the run and the pass. Millers two threats will become none. This game calls for a strong, physical back like LeVeon Bell, who will be looking to assert himself in the early Heisman talk.

The junior linebacker will see a specialist on Friday to remove a pin in his fractured right thumb. Jenkins against Texas A&M on Sept. 8. He missed UFs last two games, against Tennessee and 6 against LSU. Gators coach Will Muschamp asked team trainer Anthony Pass on Wednesday morning whether Jenkins would be in action against the Tigers. He said, Coach, well see, Muschamp said. If everything goes as we feel like it planned, theres a possibility of that. Hell probably be in a cast. Muschamp said Jenkins status for next week will be based on the results of todays evaluation. Jenkins underwent thumb surgery the morning of Sept. 10. He started working in the weight room with strength coach Jeff Dillman during his second week of recovery. nothing, Muschamp said. This past week, hes been running and lifting as much as he can with a cast. If Jenkins plays against LSU, he may need some time to adjust to competing with the cast. The longer you go with it, the easier and more accustomed you get to playing with it, Gators defensive coplay with a cast sometimes (you think), Ah, it feels big, or, Can we trim it off this spot here to get it where it feels just right? And then after you play with it and practice with it for a few days, then you make the necessary adjustments to it (and) then usually you have a better feel for it. with one tackle for a loss. Freshman linebacker Antonio Morrison started the past two games at Jenkins weakside linebacker spot. While the the Gators with 16, he doesnt have Jenkins experience. Injured linebacker could play with cast vs. LSU JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer The Florida defensive linemen are getting their rest. That wasnt always the case in 2011. Last season, UF coaches did not feel they had enough linemen on the roster that they could trust to perform in games, percentage of snaps. The backups have made strides this season, and it has allowed coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to rotate fresh players into the game while giving the starters added rest. They are taking less snaps, Muschamp said. As a result, I think weve played better as the game has worn on. Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. and defensive end Jonathan Bullard headline the Gators improved depth. Both true freshmen earned playing time in each of Floridas four games and have combined for 15 tackles, including two for last Saturday against Kentucky. Other players have stepped up and made an impact after not doing so for multiple years. Redshirt senior Earl Okine made two tackles against the Wildcats while sophomore Leon Orr tallied a careerhigh four tackles in the game. Orr has nine tackles on the season after recording only 10 all of last year. Junior college transfer Damien Jacobs also earned the trust of the coaches early on. Quinn likes his ability to play both three-technique defensive tackle and nose tackle. Hes got good quickness, Quinn said of Jacobs. He can push the pocket.

Jenkins, in his third season as a starter at linebacker, has made 25 starts. He has racked up 14 tackles in two games against LSU. The junior can also rush the passer and drop into coverage. Jenkins has two career intercep2010. He provides some real speed for us on the match up tight-end wise when we get into our nickel package, and then just his experience playing linebacker. I dont think you can over look that. So those three things, to me, would be big if we could get him back into our lineup.

Charlie Brown may have once feared the Environmental Protection Agency after he bit a tree, but at UF, he and the Peanuts cast have come to teach visitors about caring for the environment. The Peanuts Naturally: Charlie Brown and Friends Explore Nature exhibit will kick off from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The exhibit focuses on Charles Schulzs exploration of the natural world through his Peanuts comic strips, said Tamara Herchel, the museums marketing and public relations coordinator. It includes samplings from his comic strips and videos that touch on topics like the universe, elements and gardening. On Saturday, the George A. Smathers Libraries collection of vintage Peanut memorabilia will be on display, Herchel said. The Sequential Artists Workshop will give demonstrations on drawing and inking comic strips, and representatives from UFs School of Ants project will explain to attendees how to participate in ant research in their own backyards. I like to call it edu-tainment, Herchel said. The exhibit will run from Saturday to Jan. 2. Admission is free this weekend for UF students. Paige Pitisci, 19-year-old telecommunication sophomore, grew up listening to her dad read Peanuts to her, so shes excited for the exhibit. Using the comic strip will be an enjoyable way for people to learn about science and the environment and bring back childhood memories, Pitisci said.Peanuts nature exhibit to open at the UF Florida MuseumBoth parties want more scooter parkingSchulz versity Avenue this weekend when this years Pride Festival hits the streets.

Both the Students Party and the Swamp Party appeared around campus and provided students with information about their campaign platforms and party messages. This semester, both parties have new platform points generated by student input. For example, the Students Party aims to bring more options where of-age students can buy alcohol on campus. Students Party campaign manager Dave Bradshaw said many UF students are old enough to consume alcohol responsibly, including more than 15,000 graduate and professional students. Currently, students who can drink legally can only buy alcohol at the Orange & Brew. It seems to be a little harsh, Bradshaw said. One of the points on the Swamp Partys platform is to install sunscreen dispensers in Ben ty spokesman Daniel Landesberg said its a completely new idea. He said party leadership was sitting around brainstorming platform points, and a lot of them had sunburns from a football game. It can really prevent potential skin damage and certainly be berg said.

Previously, the county had to contact the National Weather Service in Jacksonville to get updates about severe weather, said Dave Donnelly, county emergency management director. He said employees have been through training, and all proper paperwork has rect access to the emergency system. After Sept. 11, there needed to be a way for the president to contact the whole nation simultaneously, he said. The Emergency Alert System can only broadcast through television and radio. In case of an actual emergency, a website and phone number are given to citizens for direction on what to do. The system has been around since the 1950s, but due to technology issues and an outdated platform, it was unavailable to the county. Alachua County updated its system, Emergency Alert System. Another way for citizens to get infor mation in cases of an emergency is the CodeRED system. CodeRED allows people to sign up to gency Alert System sends. It will send information through subscribers mobile and home phones, email and hearing-impaired systems. In this day and age, everyone has a cellphone on them, said Mark Sexton, county spokesman.

2011 festival. This year, Hannahs said she is expecting about 100 vendors. Gainesville has a thriving pride festival, Hannahs said. Its an indication that the local LGBT community is thriving in itself. Hannahs said protesters often come out for the festival, but safety volunteers and police will be present as a precautionary measure. The LGBT pride festival isnt limited to the LGBT community, she said. Sometimes pride festivals get a bad rep, but ours has a lot of representation throughout the community, Hannahs said. The festival is for folks from all walks of life. Bobby Brito, a 19-year-old political science junior, said the festival is a great experience. Pride shows people that arent necessarily out yet that there is a large system of support for everyone within Gainesville, he said.

Asghar wrote that the Unite Par ty had been replaced by the Swamp Party and most of its members had been in the Unite Party, which Williams argued was false. We created this party as a new party for the University of Florida, Williams said.

Williams said only 10 Swamp Party candidates have been involved with the Unite Party. Students Party representative Sen.

If new leadership emerges and starts a new party, and that party doesnt want to be associated with the old party for any reason, they shouldnt be, said Commission Chairman Wes Stephens. The commission unanimously ruled a cease-and-desist on the issue. But this rule cant stop people from stating fact, such as saying a former Unite Party senator was a former Unite Party senator.

The fourth annual Academic Sports Challenge will bring in money to the George A. Smathers Libraries for every touchdown scored in the season. Students, faculty and alumni can pledge dollars per touchdown to donate to the library system. At the end of the 12-game season, donors pay their donations based on the number of touchdowns scored, said Bar bara Hood, UF library spokeswoman. Students can join the chalpledge form, which can be found at the UF libraries website. Pledges can range from 25 cents to more than $100, depending on what the donor wants to contribute. Students can join the challenge at any time during the season, Hood said. The good thing about it is people can also choose where they want their money to go to, she said. Donors can choose to have collections and libraries, she said. The pledge sheet has several collections and libraries listed, but donors can write in want to direct their donation toward. Since the program started, it has been expanded to include basketball as part of The Florida Basketball 3-point Challenge, which works similarly to the Academic Sports Challenge. Donors can pledge money for every successful 3-point shot made during the regular basketball season for the mens and womens teams. The funds we raise from the challenge are for all the students, said Samuel Huang, library associate dean for advancement and development. It is to meet all the students learning needs. Richard Carris, a UF alumnus and member of the Library Leadership Board, presented the idea for the challenge four years ago. While watching the 2009 BCS championship game, the idea came to his then 13-yearold son Brent. I thought it would be smart to have some sort of donation to the school for every touchdown, said Brent, now 17.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 NOELIA TRUJILLOAlligator Contributing WriterUF students can now bowl against someone across the country without having to travel far ther than the Reitz Unions Game Room. nation to offer XBowling, a social mobile application that combines traditional bowling with technology. It allows bowlers to connect with players worldwide, said Bill parent company, Sports Challenge Network. Students can download the app for free on any smartphone. XBowling is bowling without boundaries, he said. We eliminate the physical and time boundaries to allow people to bowl with someone around the world. Sports Challenge Network set up a server in the Reitz Unions Game Room that reads live scores and transmits them to users mobile devices within seconds, said Fasig, 49. All users have to do is download the app to their smartphones, set up an account and register their location to see their game live, he said. Most challenges are free, but some may cost up to 10 cents. Not only can users play their opponents live, but if a competitor is only able to bowl later in the week or month, the scores can be recorded at separate times, Fasig said. For the later bowler, the score will show up as if the game is live, with the competitors score showing up frame by frame. Game Room manager Char lotte Dare said she thought using the app was a good way to stay in touch with someone without physically being with them. I think its the next big thing thats happening, she said. I think it brings a little bit of newness to bowling, a little bit of excitement to bowling. Dare said she hopes having the app at UF will increase the amount of Game Room bowlers. Philosophy junior Brett Palaschak, 20, checked his XBowling app as he bowled his third game Wednesday in lane 15 of the Game Room. I dont really understand it fully yet, he said, but Ive been using it to keep track of my averages. Palaschak said he would challenge people once he learns more about the app. Fasig said he hopes UF can take the lead using the app, eventually challenging other schools, doing intramurals or even conducting char ity events via XBowling. What I love and see is people getting excited about the ability to connect with anyone in the world, Fasig said.UF is first university in nation to offer bowling applicationAlexandra Sanchez / AlligatorTyler Wells, 18-year-old biology freshman, sets up for a strike at the Reitz Union Game Room on Thursday.

Stay safe this weekend, Gators, and try not to get swamped!A love letter to Alyssa for her kindnessFor those who actually read my column (thank you!), you know I devote it to progressive politics. Well, you wont be hearing about that today. You may be surprised to learn that I do indeed have many other interests, one of which is dancing my ass off at of Montreal shows. So Im going to tell you a little story. After a miserable weekend of being sick and then not being sick and then getting sick again and hating myself for getting behind in my coursework and feeling like an incompetent idiot, I allowed myself to be excited at the prospect of seeing one of my favorite bands at the Reitz Union for free the one and only of Montreal. If youve never listened to of Montreal, imagine dancing on the surface of the sun while tripping on acid. I arrived for an afternoon class on Tuesday and decided to line up later that evening for the show. Before I had the chance to close the door behind me, I saw four words that crushed my mood further than I thought it I had no idea they gave out tickets on Friday! I went out of town over the weekend and thought you only had to show up and line up for the concert. Needless to say, I was wrong. Despite an enjoyable class, I couldnt get over the disheartening thought in the back of my mind that I missed out on seeing one of my all-time favorite bands for free. I had seen them once before, but it was without a doubt one of the most fun shows Id ever been to. At one point, the frontman, head to toe in shaving cream. Enough said. After leaving class, I called my very good friend Summer on the phone to vent my frustration. Being the amazing person she is, she encouraged me to go to the Reitz and try to get in anyway. Unlike her, Im not optimistic. I also gave my friend David an earful. I considered trying to buy a ticket from someone in line, but I realized I left most of my cash in my car. I had two one-dollar bills in my wallet. By this time, Ive given up all hope. David suggested the same thing as Summer: Just go and $20 to buy a ticket off of someone in line. I hesitated, but he convinced me. large crowd and line had already formed for the show. I waved the $20 around and repeatedly No hope. Most of them had already gotten their tickets punched and wristbands secured. No one responded. Most everyone looked at me like I was a martian. I was giving up hope again. Why would anyone want to sell their ticket? I was just going to leave. But then a girl walked up to me and presented her ticket. I was about to give her the $20. She said, Just take it for She told me shes a member of RUB. Someone randomly gave her the ticket, and she didnt need it. I couldnt believe my luck there was no way this was happening. She handed me the ticket, marked it with her hole puncher and another RUB member put a wristband around my wrist. I was in! I asked the girl for her name, and its Alyssa. I gave her a hug and thanked her. Thank you, Summer, for your optimism. Thank you, David, for your encouragement. And thank you, Alyssa, for your generosity. If youre reading this, I want you to know I love you, and I will never in my life forget you. Now you can understand why I took a brief departure from my usual politics during these columns; with a little optimism and positivity, the world goes round.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7In a world buzzing over cellphones and high-speed Inter net, ultra-fast networking, social media and text messaging, one can easily believe that he or she is always in the know. We crave news and thirst for more information. We desire it now ... Well, here it goes: My name is Erik, and Im Pedro Bravos roommate. Pedro was a randomly assigned roommate, and he seemed like a pretty nice kid. He was quiet, thoughtful and courteous. Three or four days a week he just wasnt here, but when he was, he kept to himself. He was like a ghost. He stayed in his bedroom and always shut his door. When eat a quick snack or make himself something to eat. He rarely washed his dishes. He enjoyed watching Futurama, Family Guy and really anything on Comedy Central. He was very artistic and enjoyed keeping a journal. Pedro never said much about it, but I was curious, so I would look. I saw pictures of hearts; red and pink hearts, shattered hearts, hearts in tiny pieces, broken hearts. Next to his illustrations there was usually a caption perhaps even a poem. Several reporters have asked me if his behavior before the incident was odd, suspicious or unusual. It wasnt. It was Pedro. I lived with him, but I hardly knew him. came by was Friday night between 11 p.m. and midnight. I had just cleaning up, when I heard a knock at the door. I told a friend to answer it. dro was home (which he was not), he called me downstairs. After 30 to 40 minutes of interviewing, I had so many unanswered questions. Was my roommate OK? Was he safe? Was he missing? Or was he a suspect in a potential homicide? Was he dangerous? Should I feel threatened should I leave? Im still here. Ive been asked off the record if I think he did it. Sadly, I know as much as you do. I dont know either. But nevertheless, heres what I do know: I saw Pedro for the last time Thursday afternoon, between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. I was sitting at my living room table eating lunch when he came out of his bedroom. He was wear depicted in that surveillance photo taken at Best Buy: dark, navy-blue jeans and a black shirt. He said goodbye and left. I stayed at the apartment until 5 p.m., when I left for an event at UF. Pedro hadnt returned. After the event was over, I came back to my apartment, and by then it was between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. According to my other roommate, Pedro came back between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. He didnt stay long. He walked quickly up the stairs and disappeared into his bedroom no hello, nothing. walking back down the stairs with his backpack. My roommate vaguely remembers what he was wearing, or if he appeared to be dirty, muddy or sweaty. I keep the apartment very clean, vacuuming almost every day; I didnt see anything suspicious. Because of my tough schedule, I didnt go to sleep until early Friday morning 4 a.m. Still no Pedro. That Thursday, Pedro put a question on the little white board attached to our fridge asking how much the tickets were for Satur days football game. I answered the question. By the time I woke up Friday sleep, there was a new question, a question again asked by Pedro: How many tickets can students buy? Pedro. In other words, Pedro came home between the hours of 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. and left. Christian Aguilar was last seen at 6 p.m. on Thursday near Streits Motorsports on Northwest 13th Street. His cellphone was shut off at about 8 p.m., according to reports. tives, forensics units and reporters have been in and out of our apartment. A receipt for a shovel, dated Sept. 16, was found in Pedros bedroom. Theyve been back and forth, searching for anything, clues, evidence that could lead them to the whereabouts of Christian. On Saturday evening, after returning from the football game, I found something suspicious in our washing machine. that he was wearing that last time I saw him. It was washed, but it was still damp. Ive been asked a lot about his bedroom what it looked like, what was in it. It was usually messy, but the last and most startling thing I saw was a quote on his white board, which read: Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above ones head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.

ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterRegional Transit Systems bus routes will change Saturday due to the 2012 Gainesville Pride Parade. The parade, which will start at noon, will go from Ayers Medical Building to Bo Diddley Community Plaza. Four of RTSs transit routes will be affected. The routes will change from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Routes 27 and 6 will only make one trip during the course of that hour, but the routes will use differ ent roads, which could make the ride 10 to 15 minutes longer. Routes 15 and 5 will make six trips and will be about 15 minutes longer than usual. All of the routes can be seen on the homepage of RTSs website under the Pride Parade Detours section. RTS tries to provide notices about any changes in information about a week before they occur, said Chip Skinner, RTS spokesman. We try to give enough of an advance notice so people can adjust their schedules, he said. Patrons can also check the RTS Facebook page, or use its online tracking application to see the changes. About 55,000 people ride RTS buses per weekday, about 29,000 ride on Saturdays and 7,700 ride on Sundays, Skinner said. He said about 75 percent of riders are students. Richard Israel, 19, takes the No. 5 from the Rosa Parks RTS Downtown Station to get to his job at Gator Cor ner Dining Center. He said the rerouting would make getting to work harder, but hed still be taking the bus on Satur day. Its my only transportation, so Im still going to take it, he said. I just have to walk a little farther.

Four bus routes will be rerouted on Saturday. JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterIan Elsner was 8 years old when he learned how to ride a unicycle. A family that unicycles together, stays together, his dad always said, and although Elsner has fallen hundreds of times over the years, hes still unicycling. Elsner, 23, is hoping to Gainesville Unicycle Festival. Its scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. today on the North Lawn and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Roughly 20 to 30 unicyclists ranging from UF, Florida State University and University of Central Florida students to unicycle club members from Jacksonville and Sarasota will participate in the event. The festival is free and open to spectators. The goal is to create a space where the best unicyclists in the state can compete, learn and have fun with each other, said Elsner, the former president of Objects in Motion, UFs juggling club. Today, the unicyclists will try to stay balanced as they pedal during a game called UniBash, which is similar to tal arts and sciences graduate student. On Saturday, spectators can watch participants on the North Lawn compete in games like hockey or polo, jousting, slow and fast races and even sumo wrestling all per formed on a unicycle. Trophies will be awarded to the winners of each competition, and all the unicyclists will ride to a restaurant downtown. The goal of this is to start a unicycling tradition here in Gainesville and to make this festival an annual thing, Elsner said. He said being with a group of unicyclists is a lot more enjoyable than unicycling alone. If you are in a group of six to 10 people going down University Avenue looking for a place to eat, you can joke about the stares, Elsner said. Shelley MacLean, who graduated from UF in 2009, has been unicycling for more than a year. She said she is excited to get together with others at the festival. Its an awesome feeling when everyone shares something in common, she said. MacLean, 26, said some people are even able to solve a Rubiks Cube while unicycling. Anything you can do on two feet, you can do on a unicycle, she said. Journalism senior Jenn Riek said she almost had a collision on her bicycle with a unicycle. I dont think bicycles and unicycles mix too well, she said. Its a funny story. But Riek, 21, said she admires unicyclists balancing skills and courage. They are brave because Ive tried unicycling, and its extremely hard, she said.

SquareTrade surveyed more than 2,000 iPhone users and then combined the cost of repairs, replacements and insurance deductibles for broken iPhones. Younger iPhone users are more likely to damage their phones, according to the study. Half of iPhone users under 35 have had an accident. Addie Alter, an 18-year-old nursing freshman, is among them. She has damaged her iPhone three times. Each time, Alter chose to get the phone repaired, which has cost her more than $200 total. I would freak out, she said. It stressed me out the entire day. it cost money. Instead of visiting an Apple store to repair her phone, Alter used the iHospital above Pita Pit in the UF Plaza. Alter said she chose to go there because it was cheaper and more convenien, and because there is no Apple store in Gainesville. The study found that the need for iPhone repairs most often results from being dropped. Immersing iPhones in liquid came in at No. 2. iHospital Mac surgeon James Franklin Baldwin said about 80 percent of customers are students. He said the top reasons for iPhone repair visits are cracked screens, which typically cost age, which costs about $50. Baldwin said he wasnt sur prised by the survey results.

ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterThe Gator Wesley Foundations campus pastor believes it was a BB shot from a passing vehicle that shattered its glass door Wednesday night. The majority of the United Methodist campus ministry was upstairs worshipping when the left door punched into its upper right corner, leaving a web of cracks across the pane. Early childhood education senior Emily Minter was studying alone in the lobby when she heard the thwack behind her. It sounded like when someone jerks on the door when its locked, the 21-year-old said. When she turned around, Minter noticed the cracked glass. She could hear it splitting as she approached. One crack would go, then it just kept cracking, she said. Minter fetched former staff member Jessica Jollie, a the pastor, who then called the police. Narcie Jeter, 32, the executive director and campus pastor, said there were no security cameras. Jollie said she didnt think it was intentional toward the church. Because the door remained intact, she wasnt too worried about security. If someone wanted to get in here, there wasnt much stopping them, she said. It was just a little girl down here by herself. manager, said she spoke with multiple companies on Thursday about replacing the door. The damages were originally estimated by the ministry at about $2,000. A police report put the amount to be about $500. We budget for maintenance, but it would have been wonderful to use that money for the ministry, student outreach or a mission trip, Jeter said. We just want to make sure the students are as safe as possible. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator.org.Campus ministry front door shattered

The African spiny mouse could become a new base for regenerative medicine research in mammals, said Ashley Seifert, a 36-year-old Department of Biology postdoctoral fellow at UF who worked on the study. After hearing about a mouse that could shed its skin to evade predators, Seifert packed his bags for Kenya in May 2009 to begin trials at the Mpala Research Centre. A mouse losing its skin doesnt make any sense, he said. To locals, it was a novelty and not really something to look into. The researchers punched holes into the mices ears to test the ear tissues regenerative abilities. The team of six, which included Seifert, found that the African mices hair follicles regrew in the wounds. He said in a regular lab mouse, 10 days of growth would produce a scar but leave the original hole. The African spiny mice generated new cartilage and a pretty good reconstitution of tissue. Seifert said the mices ability to regenerate ear tissue is similar to salamanders ability to regrow limbs damaged by predators. However, this is rarely seen in mammals. ogy, and wounding and scarring in mammals, he said. The hope is future research on these mice will lead to human therapies down the road, Seifert said. Seifert, who usually works with amphibians, said he was surprised multiple times during the process. Going into the project, it was like This sounds really interesting, but we just a series of Wow, this is real.

Gillislee on Awards WatchFlorida running back Mike Gillislee was added to the Maxwell Award Watch List on Thursday. Gillislee ranks second in the Southeastern Conference with 402 rushing yards this season.Sturgis Up for Academic Honor William V. Campbell Trophy. The award recognizes the nations top football scholar-athlete. On Thursday night, the NFL welcomed back referees who ate professional football games. What a concept! With the exception of Seattle, pigskin fans across the nation rejoiced with a powerful fervor the Earth has not felt since referee Ed Big Guns Hochulis most recent bench press. We like our referees ripped and swole, thank you very much. Hochuli 2012! The referees may be shaking off some rust this weekend, but we here the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column are just hitting our stride. Now, onto the picks! Ohio State (+3) will make gamblers everywhere happier because... While a reported $300 million changed hands in Vegas due to the replacement referee debacle in Seattle, there isnt any shady exchange of money at Ohio State. Oh wait, thats why the No. 14 Buckeyes arent participating in bowl season this year. Ohio State has nothing to lose. Braxton Miller will be the difference. Hell extend his darkhorse Heisman campaign with the kind of balanced running and passing performance the Urban Legend likes from his quarter backs. ADAM PINCUSMichigan State (-3) will channel their inner Hochuli because... Football is all about big guns, and Sparty has Brutus vastly out-broliced. The overrated Miller hasnt seen a defense the caliber of Michigan State, which ranks in the top 15 nationally against both the run and the pass. Millers two threats will become none. This game calls for a strong, physical back like LeVeon Bell, who will be looking to assert himself in the early Heisman talk.

Jenkins left the game with a thumb injury. JENKINS SUFFERED A FRACTURE IN HIS RIGHT THUMB ON SEPT. 8. ADAM PINCUSAlligators Staff Writer Jelani Jenkins has an important doctors appointment today. The junior linebacker will see a specialist on Friday to remove a pin in his fractured right thumb. Jenkins against Texas A&M on Sept. 8. He missed UFs last two games, against Tennessee and 6 against LSU. Gators coach Will Muschamp asked team trainer Anthony Pass on Wednesday morning whether Jenkins would be in action against the Tigers. He said, Coach, well see, Muschamp said. If everything goes as we feel like it planned, theres a possibility of that. Hell probably be in a cast. Muschamp said Jenkins status for next week will be based on the results of todays evaluation. Jenkins underwent thumb surgery the morning of Sept. 10. He started working in the weight room with strength coach Jeff Dillman during his second week of recovery. nothing, Muschamp said. This past week, hes been running and lifting as much as he can with a cast. If Jenkins plays against LSU, he may need some time to adjust to competing with the cast. The longer you go with it, the easier and more accustomed you get to playing with it, Gators defensive coplay with a cast sometimes (you think), Ah, it feels big, or, Can we trim it off this spot here to get it where it feels just right? And then after you play with it and practice with it for a few days, then you make the necessary adjustments to it (and) then usually you have a better feel for it. with one tackle for a loss. Freshman linebacker Antonio Morrison started the past two games at Jenkins weakside linebacker spot. While the the Gators with 16, he doesnt have Jenkins experience. Injured linebacker could play with cast vs. LSU JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer The Florida defensive linemen are getting their rest. That wasnt always the case in 2011. Last season, UF coaches did not feel they had enough linemen on the roster that they could trust to perform in games, percentage of snaps. The backups have made strides this season, and it has allowed coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to rotate fresh players into the game while giving the starters added rest. They are taking less snaps, Muschamp said. As a result, I think weve played better as the game has worn on. Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. and defensive end Jonathan Bullard headline the Gators improved depth. Both true freshmen earned playing time in each of Floridas four games and have combined for 15 tackles, including two for last Saturday against Kentucky. Other players have stepped up and made an impact after not doing so for multiple years. Redshirt senior Earl Okine made two tackles against the Wildcats while sophomore Leon Orr tallied a careerhigh four tackles in the game. Orr has nine tackles on the season after recording only 10 all of last year. Junior college transfer Damien Jacobs also earned the trust of the coaches early on. Quinn likes his ability to play both three-technique defensive tackle and nose tackle. Hes got good quickness, Quinn said of Jacobs. He can push the pocket.

Jenkins, in his third season as a starter at linebacker, has made 25 starts. He has racked up 14 tackles in two games against LSU. The junior can also rush the passer and drop into coverage. Jenkins has two career intercep2010. He provides some real speed for us on the match up tight-end wise when we get into our nickel package, and then just his experience playing linebacker. I dont think you can over look that. So those three things, to me, would be big if we could get him back into our lineup.
