WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 REDROCK BOARD SHOP IS HOUSED IN KINGS GARAGE. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Aaron King longboards through Gainesville, many people dont realize hes riding an electric board. He stops his board in a split second, then cruises away with the touch of a button. King, 28, is the founder of RedRock Board Shop, a Gainesville company that produces customizable electric longboards. The shop offers various boards, wheels, colors, batteries and a USB plug that lets riders program acceleration, brake intensity and longboard speed with their computers. The motorized truck a metal piece that connects wheels to the deck costs $300. The electronics and truck can be purchased and attached to an existing board for $950. An all inclusive package board and electronics costs $1,188. King, who graduated from UF in 2007 with an engineering degree, began longboarding in 2002 to get around campus. He started buying equipment and making electric when he found electric longboards werent as high-quality as he expected. I know what the longboard feel is supposed to feel like, King said. I wanted to get that electric feel. King began RedRock Board Shop in May after his longboards started getting attention among his friends. He quit his job at LoadTest Inc. and began making boards full time out of his garage in downtown Gainesville. But now, the startup costs keep King and his shop from full production. King took to the Web and established a Kickstarter page for his company to raise money for production runs and legal fees due to liability costs. His goal is to raise $99,999 by Oct. 28. As of Tuesday, the drive has raised $4,480. We need to get our a-kicked a little bit, King said. Once its in gear, itll pretty much pay for itself. King said there are a handful of other competitors that produce electric skateboards, but most of the longboards hes seen are poor quality and overpriced. King said longboard enthusiasts ranging from 9 to 60 years old have used his boards, and high school and college students use them to get around campus. His interest in his electric longboards has gone coast to coast since he went to California in August for a trade show. He is talking to distributors and, ultimately, wants his product to be available in skate shops. Theres a new breed of electric boards that arent toys and arent junk, King said. Most of the parts are made in Connecticut, with the exception of the motor, which is made in China. Depending on the order, assembly So far, King has made 15 electric longboards and has sold about 10. Peter Harter, manager of Free Ride Surf & Skate Shop, said the store doesnt plan to carry electric longboards because of the high price and because its a new market. Nonetheless, Harter said a custom electric skateboard is an excellent idea because the board has a braking system, which would mean theyd be allowed in bike lanes rather than only on sidewalks. Its a form of exercise [rather] than a form of entertainment, Har ter said. Gator Longboarding president Jeffrey Dickens, 19, said he wouldnt use an electric skateboard as his primary source of transportation, but hed try it out as a toy. Theyre a lot of fun to mess around on, the mechanical engineering sophomore said. He said the ability to customize your own longboard is a good step, but because of the price, only serious longboarders would invest in an electric board. If its your hobby, Dickens said, people will spend. King plans to produce about 100 boards a month once his business gets rolling. We just need the beginning inventory, and were good to go.Gator alumnus funds startup electric longboard companyAaron King, UF alumnus and founder of RedRock Board Shop, rides down the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail on one of his electric longboards Oct. 9. The electronics for a board cost $300. LOCAL SAMANTHA BLACKAlligator Contributing WriterThe Alachua County Fair returns Friday to kick off a week of festivities. The fair starts at 5 p.m. Friday at the Alachua County Fairgrounds, 3100 NE 39th Ave., with a concert and will run through Oct. 27. Stephen White, CEO of Event Marketing Corporation, said he expects about 35,000 people to attend. It all depends on the weather, said White, whose company is managing the fair. This will be the fairs second year under new management since it faced cancellation in 2010 for unpaid bills. All bills were paid in full by last years last year. This years fair will have new attractions, including The Grizzly Experience Show as well as new, local performers appearing throughout the week. White said Kachunga and the Alligator Show is back by popular demand, and the Talent Quest Karaoke Singing Contest will It will also hold the Sunburst Beauty Pageant Saturday. Tickets are $5 for adults, $2 for kids ages 6 to 12 and $20 for wristbands that allow unlimited rides. If you want to get more bang for your buck, buy a wristband in advance, and come on a Wednesday and there will be no lines, White said.

Petersen said they put the quilts in handmade cloth bags and toss toiletries inside. When we get them done each year, we spread them out all over the church, and Rev. Jim blesses them, Petersen said. We send them out with that. Merritt said the most memorable quilt recipient appeared two years ago on Bo Diddley Plaza. He said a volunteer handed a quilt to a woman in her 80s. She thanked him but declined the gift. I dont really need it, Merritt recalled the woman said. Is it OK if I give it to that lady over there? Because she really does need it. Merritt said she then stood up, walked over to the other homeless woman and gave it to her. Its the best of it when you give in a way that enables others to give when they otherwise couldnt have done so, Merritt said. KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterThe number of homeless people in Gainesville rose to 2,094 this year. To combat this number, the of Homelessness will raise money through grants and organize community events to increase awarerector. nized events and drafted plans for a Gainesville homeless marketplace, according to a quarterly report reCounty Community Agency Partnership Program awards, Lowe said. One worth $23,000 will go toward move-in expenses, the report said. The other, worth $2,000, will stock the pantries of people when they move into permanent housing. The organization also applied for a TD Bank grant worth $100,000. The money will fund the Max Wells Veterans Transitional Housing Facility Project, which will provide transitional housing for 114 homeless veterans, the report said. The 14th Annual Breakfast on the Plaza, sponsored by the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, will be Oct. 25 to teach residents about services available to homeless people. There will be breakfast for about 600 people made by volunteers from Bread of the Mighty, a Gainesville food pantry, Lowe said. There will also be 35 homeless service providers, like Meridian Behavioral Healthcare and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Its a really good way for people to connect to different services, Lowe said, ideally to get them into jobs and off the street. The report also had a letter to the Gainesville City Commission regarding the GRACE Marketplace, a homeless assistance center that will consolidate services in one place. The marketplace, which will offer housing, food, medical and behavioral health services and job training, is not intended to be a homeless shelter, Lowe said. Were really trying to bring the concept of a marketplace but targeted toward those who are homeless or facing homelessness, Lowe said. facilities across the country as models for the marketplace, she said. She hopes it will allow Gainesvilles existing homeless service providers to work together, she said. Kent Vann, executive director of the St. Francis House, said that in this economy, there are fewer people in the community to help and more people on the streets. Because of this, he is optimistic about how the marketplace will help the community. Certainly one agency cant serve everyone, he said. Any time you can provide more services to the community, thats probably a better thing. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012Javier Edwards / AlligatorVolunteer Lavonne Smoke prepares a food tray for the hungry at St. Francis House on Tuesday.

Chris Cano, 24, of Gainesville Compost, volunteers a few hours a week collecting restaurant food scraps and bringing them to the garden on his bicycle. In 2011, volunteers spent about 200 hours on the Downtown Farmers Garden and other community events. Its a good example of how trash can be turned into treasure, Cano said. When the harvest is ripe around December, the food will be donated to Catholic Worker House and the St. Francis House. Last year, $1,000 worth of produce was donated to Sisters Helping Sisters and St. Francis House.

HALEY STRACHERAlligator Contributing WriterMichelle Dunlap has a soft spot for what many people consider vicious, ugly killers. Dunlap, director and founder of Phoenix Animal Rescue, has found homes for abandoned and abused pit bulls since 2003. Pit bulls are like every other dog, Dunlap said. They have their own gifts, and thats what you focus on. Phoenix Animal Rescue, which is a volhave a storefront. The dogs are up for adoption at PetSmart, 3736 SW Archer Road, on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The dogs live with dog-lovers who are willing to take care of them until theyre healthy enough to go into a permanent home. Dunlaps love for pit bulls began with a dog named Chance. She adopted Chance, a white pit bull with brown eyes, in 1999. She mistakenly thought he was a white boxer, but friends told her the dog was a pit bull. She said she thought to herself God no, I would never have a pit bull. Chance was the dorkiest, silliest dog, she said. He wouldnt hurt anyone. When Dunlap took Chance to training differently because of his breed. She said she was frustrated with how other people looked at pit bulls. Animal rescues often turn away pit bulls because they think they wont be able to get the dogs adopted, she said. Chance died from a tick bite when he was 6 years old. His death didnt stop Dunlaps mission, but fueled it instead. Dunlap is very selective about who gets the dogs. She knows people look for a per fect match. No one ever walks in and just takes the dog home, said Jon Josephson, 28, a Santa Fe radiography student and a Phoenix Animal Rescue volunteer. There are about 20 to 25 dogs in the rescue, and almost every dog is a pit bull. She said people adopt six to eight dogs each month, and about 150 dogs are adopted every year. The adoption fee is $150 to $200, and the owner gets free visits to a veterinarian Josephson said the adoption fee goes straight to the veterinarian bills and expenses that it took to keep the dog healthy. The veterinarian bill is about $1,200 a month, Dunlap said. She said she cant imagine giving up the cause because of the emotional rewards she gets from knowing the dogs have good homes. Im all for the underdog, so thats how it started, Dunlap said.

Its an icky behavior or mentality that has oozed its way from college cliques into mainstream society. Its beyond us at this point. Part of the all-encompassing nature of entitlement stems from the multitude of social networkwhat we have to say. Thats why we think people everywhere should have to see and hear them, too. This happens so often, in fact, that celebrities or politicians stage the opportunities. Everything we are presented by a political party has, ideally, gone through a process of public relations experts; everything is for a reason and a purpose. Except when it becomes more fake than usual. Paul Ryan, the star vice presidential nominee, was recently seen in some interesting pictures. No, not the ones from his beefcake photo shoot that TIME Magazine shot. After greeting and thanking a handful of volunteers from St. typically visit the St. Vincent DePaul Society every Saturday and young children headed to the kitchen, donned white aprons and offered to clean up some dishes, according to a Washington Post article. It continued: Ryan stood at the sink and took some large metal pans that did not appear to be dirty, soaped them up and rinsed them. He picked up clean dishes and then pretended to clean them some more while attempting to appear human. imagine people looking at this story and just waving a hand, saying this kind of pretend happens every day. He also said most politicians at least try to hide the fact that what theyre doing is for positive publicity. Still have doubts that it was staged? Were a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations, said Brian J. Antal, the president of the St. Vincent De Paul Society in a phone interview Monday afternoon with the Washington Post. Its strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors. According to NBC News, which followed up with Antal after Internet buzz indicated he voted in Democratic primaries before, Ryan did very little work only compared to the larger context of Saturday morning, when the kitchen fed 180 homeless people breakfast. Antal conceded that Ryan did wash several dirty dishes. Ryan might have done some actual work. But he did it under such a guise of integrity. Can you imagine a pizza shop owner picking up Ryan for a hug? Never, because it would wrinkle Ryans oversized suit. I sometimes hate that God answers my prayers. It was years ago, as a naive youngun at UF, when I beunraveled the enigma of my parents (and adults in general) and hungered for deeper mystic revelations. Foolishly, I asked God to let me see the world the way he saw it. Boy, did he answer. Toward the end of my sophomore year, I became aware of human beings as products for consumption by people coerced labor, but, more often, it seems that human beings are used as objects of pleasure. Fair enough. Ill put it into words that may resonate a bit more with our statistically driven news stream. There are more slaves today than there were during the entire transatlantic slave trade. Take that in for a moment. In light of this, I ask the question: Why would a loving God send people to hell? Simple. He answers prayers. Ill never forget the story about a girl who was a sex slave in an Indian brothel. Each night, tourists and sleazy men would violate her repeatedly as her pimps pockets fattened. In the middle of this, she somehow heard about the God who judged evildoers. Every night, she prayed that she would be liberated from her forced misery. She petitioned God for justice. One day, he answered. International Justice Mission found the brothel, had her pimp arrested and prosecuted and worked to change the legal infrastructure in her area. Google it if your jaw is still on ment intriguing. If youre a postmodernist thinker earning a degree in the West, the idea of eternal damnation may make your stomach turn. Evil is probably something that you experience on the occasional movie screen. However, if your entire existence has been marred by abuse, something in you longs for divine judgment. Personally, Id prefer a God who was all hugs and tummy rubs, but God is not a pansy. He is a lawgiver. I am speaking strictly in the Biblical sense, of course. The Bible outlines the character of God clearly. God is good at loving people, but he also loves goodness. Because he loves that which is good, he hates that which perverts it. It pleases him to settle accounts, like the judge who hands down a sentence, knowing that justice has been served. He patiently watches as we pillage and plunder, pollute and rape, gossip and ruin, lie and steal and, ultimately, make excuses for it all. We stand in his courtroom and audaciously hold him in contempt. We reason that its unfair to be sentenced for one weve only done wrong once. He prescribes a path that is scorned and disregarded at every turn, holding back his wrath from the people to whom he longs to be a father. He is patient, but there comes a day when the judgment hits the house. God hears the cries for justice, and he emphatically says yes! He is good at answering prayers. Heaven and hell are the answers to the prayers that we have prayed our whole life. Heaven is the response when we pray your will be done. Ryan Galloway is a religion senior at UF.

LAURA HOGANAlligator Contributing WriterUF students can learn to avoid and break up potentially violent situations in a personal protection workshop this weekend. The free seminar, The Art of Escape, will be from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday in Southwest Recreation Center Activity Room 3, said Richard Serota, 30-year-old industrial engineering graduate student and vice president of Gator Karate. Michael Kinney, a martial arts instructor who has taught around the world for about 50 years, will teach attendees techniques like how to watch and scan in dangerous situations and control breathing so they dont hyperventilate. I will teach them how to use their brain and their mouth and their body to diffuse a situation that might become violent, Kinney said. Serota hopes about 60 students will participate in the seminar. All UF students, regardless of gender, are welcome to attend, he said. Men are just as likely to get attacked, Serota said.

Gray, whose running mate is Gary Johnson, said he believes in bringing back prosperity, equal opportunities and freedom. We have an obese federal government today, Gray said. We have a government that is intruding into every part of our lives. Anyone could be labeled as a terrorist If you lose your civil liberties to the government, you never get them back, Gray said. His administration would repeal the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and close Guantanamo Bay, which he called an open sore on the soul of the United States of America. He also said the nations drug policy does not work, naming it the biggest failed policy second only to slavery. Political science freshman Josue Rivera, 18, said he wished more people knew about Grays speech. I think a lot of people are focused on the idea that they only have one of two choices, Rivera said. But there may be a third, more practical choice that people didnt consider, because they didnt know about it.Libertarian candidate speaksGray POLITICS

TIA MCDONALD WILL BE ON THE COVER OF AN AUSTRALIAN TEEN NOVEL. ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Contributing WriterUF student and Miss Teen Florida 2011 is the face of Adora Niles. Tia McDonald, a 19-year-old public relations junior, was chosen from thousands of women to portray Niles, a character in the newly released teen fantasy novel Fairy Tale Once Upon A Time, Act 1. McDonald was photographed earlier this year as Niles for the cover of the novel, which was uploaded to self-publishing website, Lulu. com, by Australian author Somsay Toumngeun and formally released Sept. 15. McDonald said she found herself relating to Niles as she read the book. The character has a lot of qualities that I represent, she said. I feel like it was a part of me as well. Fairy Tale Once Upon A novel. He said he plans to publish a trilogy, which includes two acts per part. The second act of book one yet, but it should be out soon, he wrote in an email. He said he envisioned Niles as a ous and unwavering principles. Books like the Twilight and Hunger Games series have spurred a pop culture phenomenon Toumngeun said his 585-page book is unique. What sets Fairy Tale apart from the other teen novels is the focus of the story, he said. Despite all the magic, the monsters and the adventures, it is essentially about friendship and growing up. McDonald heard about the search for the books cover model through an international modeling agency. After the applicants were narrowed down by physical criteria, Toumngeun interviewed the hopefuls. It sealed the deal, McDonald said. I was so excited when he called and told me the news. She bought a $2,000 plane ticket to Australia for the four-hour photo shoot. Toumngeun said McDonald lived up to his expectations of Niles character. Upon meeting Tia, it became apparent that she was that person, and possessed all the qualities I was after and more, he said. She is perfect for the part, and I feel there is no one else more suitable. Although shes traveled the world gracing magazine pages and runways, McDonald said shes proud of her appearance on the novels cover. With magazines, people will read them and then a new one comes out, she said. But I will always get acter. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 Courtesy to the AlligatorUF public relations junior Tia McDonald, 19, is on the cover of recently released teen fantasy novel Fairy Tale Once Upon A Time, Act 1. UF student chosen as book character SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterUFs Student Senate passed a bill Tuesday transfering $32,000 to the Student Government Administration to construct a collegiate veterans success center and refurbish water fountains on campus. The money, which comes from SG reserves, allocates $25,000 to the center and $7,000 to the water fountains project. The center will be in Yon Hall and will serve as a gathering place for student veterans. The center will be set up within the next few months by the Department of Housing and Residence Education, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said after the meeting. exterior doors, three interior doors and two bathrooms compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. A sink and ice maker will also be installed, according to the bill. [Its] to give back to veterans who have done so much for us, said Budget Committee Chairman Joey Michaels. The $7,000 will be used to to promote sustainability on campus. In the next few weeks, gooseneck faucets will be added to 16 existing fountains to accommodate water in Matherly Hall, two in the Hub, three in Turlington Hall, two in Norman Hall, three in Weimer Hall and three in the Levin College of Law, Bonarrigo said. The Senate also passed a resolution honoring Christian Aguilar, a UF student who went missing Sept. 20. The Senate did not pass a resolution asking UF administration to halt the removal of independently owned newspaper racks. During the SG elections earlier this month, about 60 percent of students who voted on the referendum voted that they did not want the university to remove the racks. Sen. Cory Yeffet spoke against the resolution, saying the Alligator, which is mentioned in the resolution, is not a student organization and should not be treated differently than other publications. After the meeting, Sen. Umair Asghar, who wrote the resolution, said the Senate didnt represent student opinion. An injustice was done to the Student Body who voted to keep the racks, he said. Representatives from Nightlife Navigators also spoke about a new handicapaccessible Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol vehicle that would become available near the end of the semester.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Reed Up For NCAA Honor Jordan Reed was one of 25 players named to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, given to the NCAAs best tight end. UFS MIKE GILLISLEE AND SOUTH CAROLINAS MARCUS LATTIMORE LEAD OFFENSES. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer On Nov. 13, 2010, a trip to Atlanta was at stake. South Carolina and Florida played in The Swamp with the Southeastern Conference East title on the line. The winner would face Auburn in the Georgia Dome. During the next 60 minutes of football, Marcus Lattimore outmuscled and overpowered the Gators. The freshman carried the ball 40 times for 212 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-14 Gamecocks win. Nearly two years later, Lattimore is a changed man. He suffered an ACL tear in his left knee against Mississippi State last October and missed South CaroFlorida safety Josh Evans was on sees a different Lattimore than before. Hes a good back, physical guy, Evans said. I think he lost a step a little bit from what weve seen before. ... I think thats due to the injury. There was no easing back into the lineup for Lattimore this season. Not even one year removed from knee surgery, Lattimore reassumed his workhorse role in the Gamecocks offense. He leads the SEC with 129 carries through seven games. Gators coach Will Muschamp is convinced Lattimore is back to normal. Hes gotten his strength back and hes a one-cut runner, Muschamp said. Hes an outstanding runner. Florida has a north-south runner of its own in senior Mike Gillislee. While last seasons Gators relied more on jet sweeps and endarounds with speedsters Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, UF has a more traditional approach in the ground game this year. Perhaps his most impressive game to date was Floridas 14-6 win against LSU on Oct. 6. Gillislee racked up 146 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries against the David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior running back Mike Gillislee leaps over Vanderbilts Chase Garnham during UFs 31-17 win on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium. Powerful backs to face off on SaturdayADAM BOMB This season has been one of tests for Florida. UF visited Texas A&M and the 12th Man, traveled to Knoxville to face pass-happy Tennessee and hosted a year ago in LSU. So far, the Gators have passed. It doesnt get any easier for Florida when No. 9 South Carolina and freakish defensive end Jadeveon Clowney come to Gainesville. The Gators are facing more challenges How the team responds after reaching its highest ranking since Tim Tebow was quarterback will go a long way in proving Floridas worth among the nations elite. Will Muschamp refused to acknowledge BCS rankings. He said on Monday that nothing matters besides playing South Carolina this Saturday in The Swamp. Muschamp has a point: Championships arent won in the middle of October. But for a team that spent the last two years trapped in mediocrity, being No. 2 in the nation means something. It means the second-year coach has changed the teams identity to the physical, no-excuses approach. national championship discussion after two years of futility. It means Florida football is back. In 12 of the 14 years that the BCS ranking system has been in place, at least one of the teams in the top two of the initial poll made an appearance in the BCS Championship Game. With Alabama in the top spot and Florida right behind, the Gators are on track to reach their third BCS title game in seven years. Florida hosts South Carolina in a game that will be won in the trenches, as UFs victory against LSU was. Both Florida and South Carolina have elite running backs that carry the football close to 20 times per game. Both teams have athletic quarterbacks that can win games with their feet if need be. The UF community is abuzz about a football game that the Gators, on paper, should win. You walk through the campus and theres people telling you good job and keep it up, fullback Hunter Joyer said. No. 2 BCS ranking means Florida is back in the spotlight GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer If Jeff Driskel were a defensive coordinator, he knows how he would try to slow down Floridas offense. I would load the box, Driskel said. Thats what teams are going to start doing. Obviously, we havent made that many plays in the passing game. Through six games, Florida has the least productive passing offense in the Southeastern Conference, throwing for only 145 yards per contest. While UFs rushing attack is second in the SEC with 233.3 yards per game, Driskel has thrown only four touchdown passes, failing to eclipse 100 yards in either of the past two weeks. But Driskel and offensive coordinator Brent Pease are concerned about only one stat: six wins, zero losses. Thats all that matters, Driskel said. If youre winning, everythings all right. Obviously weve got to get better in the passing game, but were winning games. Said Pease: I dont really care how it gets done, as long as were productive with what we do and score points. Pease added that he would prefer Florida be more balanced offensively so opponents cant load the box on every play, but not at the expense of the game plan the Gators have drawn up to exploit the oppositions weaknesses. Counting sacks as pass attempts, Florida has run the ball on 65.2 percent of its offensive plays this season. That imbalance is a far cry from Peases offense at Boise State last season, which attempted 485 passes and 484 rushes. Still, the coordinator isnt tempted to get back to his roots. He just wants to stick with whats working. Lets not get greedy here as a coach and say, I dont like that. Im throwing the ball because thats what we all love to do, Pease said. If Jeff Driskel can carry the ball 70 yards and outrun everybody, hes getting the ball. If Mike Gillislee can get the ball and outrun everybody, hes Gators content with run-heavy approach UF Fo otball SEE GILLISLEE, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM BOMB, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15 Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam QuotableI was about ready to get up and go to the bathroom.

BARNEY HAS FIVE GOALS. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterMcKenzie Barney has scored many goals in her career at Florida, but after suffering season-ending facial fractures in 2011, one goal overshadowed the rest: staying healthy. That was kind of one of my biggest goals she said. Making sure that I have enough time to get treatment, get rest, stay hydrated so I can be at my best for this team. Barney has achieved that goal for most of this season. She missed the Gators 3-1 victory against Ole Miss with a knee injury but has played in the rest of Floridas 16 games. Being healthy isnt enough for the redshirt senior. As a forward, she needs to score. Thats kind of my job, she said. For the past four seasons, Bar ney has done her job. So far in 2012, she is tied with Havana Solaun and Jo Dragotta for Despite being one of the team leaders in scoring, Barneys season still falls short of matching her preyear of action with the team after suffering an ACL tear her freshman year, she scored eight goals. In 2010, she led the Southeastern Conference champions with 14 goals. In total, Barney has scored 31 goals, which is good for seventh in Floridas record books, behind players like FIFA Womens World Cup Champion Danielle Fotopoulos and Olympic gold medal winner Abby Wambach. It is an absolute honor to be on that list with them, Barney said. As good as Barney has been on she thinks Barneys biggest impact Her legacy is going to be a lot more than just goals scored, Bur leigh said. Shes been the epitome leader. She always gets this team Her ability to recognize what the team needs and provide that is really important. Senior Erika Tymrak has played with Barney in the attacking third for the past four years, and the two have combined for 11 goals. [Barney] is probably one of the easiest players to play with because she affects the play, no matter what she does, Tymrak said. Shell make a run knowing shes not going to get the ball just to create space for the person dribbling. Said Barney: I love playing with Erika. Barney was a key player on the 2010 SEC championship team, scoring two goals in the conference tournament. With only three games remaining before this years tour nament and the Gators on a ninegame winning streak, Barney is looking to get hot at the right time. Although Barney already has an SEC title under her belt, the senior still has one thing she is looking to of her college career: an NCAA championship. Its the goal, she said. 14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 Ryan Jones / AlligatorForward McKenzie Barney (4) battles for the ball against Mississippi States Shannen Jainudeen (17) in Healthy senior looking for scoring touch as tournament nears CHARLES KINGSBURYAlligator Writer Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate with a seven-stroke lead but could not secure the win in Vestavia Hills, Ala. round and a 286 (+6) in the second, UF closed the tournament with a 293 (+13) to eastern Conference rival Alabama on Tuesday.

Saying theyre really excited for this weekend, so its a pretty good vibe. Joyer said he received the same treatment before last seasons matchup against Alabama, but unfortunately for Florida, the good vibes were limited for the remainder of 2011. The Gators couldnt generate a consistent running or passing attack, they couldnt defend late in games, and sically, they stunk. Fans have seen the transformation from a barely bowl-eligible team to an SEC heavyweight. It helps a lot, senior safety Josh tage. That little bit of edge and motivation you hear from our fans cheer ing us on, the good luck that theyre Redshirt senior wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said he had not atmosphere like the one he experienced against LSU on Oct. 6 for a long time.

This time around, the Gators are much more Like Lattimore and South Carolina, Gillislee and Florida are tough running the football.

You need to account for him, coach Will Muschamp said. He can ruin your day. Clowney, a sophomore, has racked up 6.5 sacks this season. At 6 feet, 6 inches and 256 pounds, Clowney has the size, athleticism and quickness to be a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. Clowney enrolled at South Car olina as the topranked player in the 2011 class, according to Rivals.com. Although Clowney wont be eligible to turn pro until 2014, some scouts have projected him as an Draft. Hes what youre looking for, Muschamp said. Muschamp and Frankie Hammond Jr. said the Gators will likely try to slow Clowney by chipping him with a back or tight end. Pease said cut blocking Clowney wont work because he has the ability to jump over the block. The key, Pease said, is to be physical and run at him.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterLast season, Kenny Boynton had an opportunity to advance the Gators to the Final Four. After Bradley Beal missed a threepointer with 11 seconds left on the clock, he grabbed his own rebound and sent it back out to Boynton, who was waiting behind the arc. Boynton missed, Beal fouled and Louisville increased its lead as UFs season ended in a 72-68 loss. It wasnt how the Gators wanted to end their season, and it wasnt the reer at Florida. a winner, and thats one reason I came back, Boynton said. When you have one more shot at it, its only one way. Youre only thinking championship. Im going to try my best personally and to push this team to get deep in the tournament again this year. ton is only 501 points shy of Ronnie Williams school record of 2,090. Boynton has averaged 529.7 points years. Boynton also hopes that returning chances of making it to the NBA. Playing point guard will help my chances in getting to the next level, Boynton said. I think last year was a strong draft, and I would have a better chance in going this year. Boynton will be changing roles this season. Coach Billy Donovan would like to see Boynton be UFs new vocal leader after the team lost point guard Erving Walker to graduation. With Erving not being here, hopefully [Boynton] can step up into more of a leadership role for us, Donovan said. Kenny has been one of those kind of quiet leaders where he doesnt say a whole lot. I think a lot of times its done through how he performs and how hard he plays. Although he wants Boynton to be more vocal on the court, Donovan is cautious about putting the senior in an uncomfortable situation. Last season, Donovan pushed the quiet Walker into a leadership role a expected. However, Boynton has enjoyed his new role so far. He said hes good at breaking down plays for the freshmen. In addition to replacing Walker as a leader, Florida will need BoynWalker left Florida as its all-time assists leader, racking up 547 in four years. Boynton also plans to focus on season. Boynton made 45.8 percent of his before hitting only 34.9 percent after playing South Carolina on Jan. 14. Boynton shot only 5 of 24 from beyond the arc in the NCAA Tour nament. Im going to try to stay in the gym as much as possible this year, Boynton said. Just get a lot of repetition. Basically prepare my body for the middle of the season when my body gets tired. Boynton hopes that spending his summer in Las Vegas working on his conditioning and playing als such as Dion Waiters, Maalik Wayns, Tu Holloway and Hollis Thompson will help him excel in his new role this season. I pretty much tried to play point guard no matter what team I was on, Boynton said. The way they play is more physical. It helped me coming in every day and working with guys like that.

Boynton wants to help his NBA chances by playing point guard in 2012. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator WriterCarlie Needles expected to contribute heavily last season. The redshirt freshman from Highlands Ranch, Colo., anticipated joining a Gators backcourt full of veteran talent she could learn from and play alongside. On Nov. 6, everything changed. Five days before Floridas womens basketball team opened its season against Michigan, Needles year ended. She suffered ACL and meniscus tears in her left knee during a scrimmage. When trainers gave her the news days later, she felt a range of emotions. I cried for about 15 seconds, she said. Then I thought about what I had to do next to get back. She spent the offseason walking through Ben Hill Grifknee before beginning therapy sessions. Eleven months after the injury, she is back. With much of last seasons backcourt gone, Needles will step into a prominent role. Jaterra Bonds is the lone returning guard who averaged more than 20 minutes per game in 2011-12. Gators coach Amanda Butler said she sees similarities between Bonds and Needles. I compare [Needles] to Jaterra in the way that she leads and the way that she is so aggressive in how she controls the not hesitant at all to address a teammate in a positive way and certainly sometimes when its got to be in an enforcing way. Needles said there were facets of the game she better understands after spending a season watching from the bench. Most notably, she said the team has to improve its ish games. Of UFs 13 losses last season, 10 were decided by six points or fewer including two in overtime. Its the little things that you dont think about that make a difference, she said, identifying the teams poor percentage from the free-throw line late in Butler agreed, saying the Gators have to learn to close utes, a point when UF often let games slip away last season. That begins with the focus Needles can bring in her return to the court. Carlie has taken full advantage of the year that she did have to sit and wait, Butler said. She was already a bright, and it was almost like pouring a bunch of gasoline on that passion that was already inside of her.Back after ACL tear, guard ready to lead Senior looking to take on new roleNeedles UF Mens Bask etball

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 REDROCK BOARD SHOP IS HOUSED IN KINGS GARAGE. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterWhen Aaron King longboards through Gainesville, many people dont realize hes riding an electric board. He stops his board in a split second, then cruises away with the touch of a button. King, 28, is the founder of RedRock Board Shop, a Gainesville company that produces customizable electric longboards. The shop offers various boards, wheels, colors, batteries and a USB plug that lets riders program acceleration, brake intensity and longboard speed with their computers. The motorized truck a metal piece that connects wheels to the deck costs $300. The electronics and truck can be purchased and attached to an existing board for $950. An all inclusive package board and electronics costs $1,188. King, who graduated from UF in 2007 with an engineering degree, began longboarding in 2002 to get around campus. He started buying equipment and making electric when he found electric longboards werent as high-quality as he expected. I know what the longboard feel is supposed to feel like, King said. I wanted to get that electric feel. King began RedRock Board Shop in May after his longboards started getting attention among his friends. He quit his job at LoadTest Inc. and began making boards full time out of his garage in downtown Gainesville. But now, the startup costs keep King and his shop from full production. King took to the Web and established a Kickstarter page for his company to raise money for production runs and legal fees due to liability costs. His goal is to raise $99,999 by Oct. 28. As of Tuesday, the drive has raised $4,480. We need to get our a-kicked a little bit, King said. Once its in gear, itll pretty much pay for itself. King said there are a handful of other competitors that produce electric skateboards, but most of the longboards hes seen are poor quality and overpriced. King said longboard enthusiasts ranging from 9 to 60 years old have used his boards, and high school and college students use them to get around campus. His interest in his electric longboards has gone coast to coast since he went to California in August for a trade show. He is talking to distributors and, ultimately, wants his product to be available in skate shops. Theres a new breed of electric boards that arent toys and arent junk, King said. Most of the parts are made in Connecticut, with the exception of the motor, which is made in China. Depending on the order, assembly So far, King has made 15 electric longboards and has sold about 10. Peter Harter, manager of Free Ride Surf & Skate Shop, said the store doesnt plan to carry electric longboards because of the high price and because its a new market. Nonetheless, Harter said a custom electric skateboard is an excellent idea because the board has a braking system, which would mean theyd be allowed in bike lanes rather than only on sidewalks. Its a form of exercise [rather] than a form of entertainment, Har ter said. Gator Longboarding president Jeffrey Dickens, 19, said he wouldnt use an electric skateboard as his primary source of transportation, but hed try it out as a toy. Theyre a lot of fun to mess around on, the mechanical engineering sophomore said. He said the ability to customize your own longboard is a good step, but because of the price, only serious longboarders would invest in an electric board. If its your hobby, Dickens said, people will spend. King plans to produce about 100 boards a month once his business gets rolling. We just need the beginning inventory, and were good to go.Gator alumnus funds startup electric longboard companyAaron King, UF alumnus and founder of RedRock Board Shop, rides down the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail on one of his electric longboards Oct. 9.

The fair starts at 5 p.m. Friday at the Alachua County Fairgrounds, 3100 NE 39th Ave., with a concert and will run through Oct. 27. Stephen White, CEO of Event Marketing Corporation, said he expects about 35,000 people to attend. It all depends on the weather, said White, whose company is managing the fair. This will be the fairs second year under new management since it faced cancellation in 2010 for unpaid bills. All bills were paid in full by last years last year.

Petersen said they put the quilts in handmade cloth bags and toss toiletries inside. When we get them done each year, we spread them out all over the church, and Rev. Jim blesses them, Petersen said. We send them out with that. Merritt said the most memorable quilt recipient appeared two years ago on Bo Diddley Plaza. He said a volunteer handed a quilt to a woman in her 80s. She thanked him but declined the gift. I dont really need it, Merritt recalled the woman said. Is it OK if I give it to that lady over there? Because she really does need it. Merritt said she then stood up, walked over to the other homeless woman and gave it to her. Its the best of it when you give in a way that enables others to give when they otherwise couldnt have done so, Merritt said.

To combat this number, the of Homelessness will raise money through grants and organize community events to increase awarerector. nized events and drafted plans for a Gainesville homeless marketplace, according to a quarterly report reCounty Community Agency Partnership Program awards, Lowe said. One worth $23,000 will go toward move-in expenses, the report said. The other, worth $2,000, will stock the pantries of people when they move into permanent housing. The organization also applied for a TD Bank grant worth $100,000. The money will fund the Max Wells Veterans Transitional Housing Facility Project, which will provide transitional housing for 114 homeless veterans, the report said. The 14th Annual Breakfast on the Plaza, sponsored by the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, will be Oct. 25 to teach residents about services available to homeless people. There will be breakfast for about 600 people made by volunteers from Bread of the Mighty, a Gainesville food pantry, Lowe said. There will also be 35 homeless service providers, like Meridian Behavioral Healthcare and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Its a really good way for people to connect to different services, Lowe said, ideally to get them into jobs and off the street. The report also had a letter to the Gainesville City Commission regarding the GRACE Marketplace, a homeless assistance center that will consolidate services in one place. The marketplace, which will offer housing, food, medical and behavioral health services and job training, is not intended to be a homeless shelter, Lowe said. Were really trying to bring the concept of a marketplace but targeted toward those who are homeless or facing homelessness, Lowe said. facilities across the country as models for the marketplace, she said. She hopes it will allow Gainesvilles existing homeless service providers to work together, she said. Kent Vann, executive director of the St. Francis House, said that in this economy, there are fewer people in the community to help and more people on the streets. Because of this, he is optimistic about how the marketplace will help the community. Certainly one agency cant serve everyone, he said. Any time you can provide more services to the community, thats probably a better thing. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012Javier Edwards / AlligatorVolunteer Lavonne Smoke prepares a food tray for the hungry at St. Francis House on Tuesday.

HALEY STRACHERAlligator Contributing WriterMichelle Dunlap has a soft spot for what many people consider vicious, ugly killers. Dunlap, director and founder of Phoenix Animal Rescue, has found homes for abandoned and abused pit bulls since 2003. Pit bulls are like every other dog, Dunlap said. They have their own gifts, and thats what you focus on. Phoenix Animal Rescue, which is a volhave a storefront. The dogs are up for adoption at PetSmart, 3736 SW Archer Road, on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The dogs live with dog-lovers who are willing to take care of them until theyre healthy enough to go into a permanent home. Dunlaps love for pit bulls began with a dog named Chance. She adopted Chance, a white pit bull with brown eyes, in 1999. She mistakenly thought he was a white boxer, but friends told her the dog was a pit bull. She said she thought to herself God no, I would never have a pit bull. Chance was the dorkiest, silliest dog, she said. He wouldnt hurt anyone. When Dunlap took Chance to training differently because of his breed. She said she was frustrated with how other people looked at pit bulls. Animal rescues often turn away pit bulls because they think they wont be able to get the dogs adopted, she said. Chance died from a tick bite when he was 6 years old. His death didnt stop Dunlaps mission, but fueled it instead. Dunlap is very selective about who gets the dogs. She knows people look for a per fect match. No one ever walks in and just takes the dog home, said Jon Josephson, 28, a Santa Fe radiography student and a Phoenix Animal Rescue volunteer. There are about 20 to 25 dogs in the rescue, and almost every dog is a pit bull. She said people adopt six to eight dogs each month, and about 150 dogs are adopted every year. The adoption fee is $150 to $200, and the owner gets free visits to a veterinarian Josephson said the adoption fee goes straight to the veterinarian bills and expenses that it took to keep the dog healthy. The veterinarian bill is about $1,200 a month, Dunlap said. She said she cant imagine giving up the cause because of the emotional rewards she gets from knowing the dogs have good homes. Im all for the underdog, so thats how it started, Dunlap said.

Its an icky behavior or mentality that has oozed its way from college cliques into mainstream society. Its beyond us at this point. Part of the all-encompassing nature of entitlement stems from the multitude of social networkwhat we have to say. Thats why we think people everywhere should have to see and hear them, too. This happens so often, in fact, that celebrities or politicians stage the opportunities. Everything we are presented by a political party has, ideally, gone through a process of public relations experts; everything is for a reason and a purpose. Except when it becomes more fake than usual. Paul Ryan, the star vice presidential nominee, was recently seen in some interesting pictures. No, not the ones from his beefcake photo shoot that TIME Magazine shot. After greeting and thanking a handful of volunteers from St. typically visit the St. Vincent DePaul Society every Saturday and young children headed to the kitchen, donned white aprons and offered to clean up some dishes, according to a Washington Post article. It continued: Ryan stood at the sink and took some large metal pans that did not appear to be dirty, soaped them up and rinsed them. He picked up clean dishes and then pretended to clean them some more while attempting to appear human. imagine people looking at this story and just waving a hand, saying this kind of pretend happens every day. He also said most politicians at least try to hide the fact that what theyre doing is for positive publicity. Still have doubts that it was staged? Were a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations, said Brian J. Antal, the president of the St. Vincent De Paul Society in a phone interview Monday afternoon with the Washington Post. Its strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors. According to NBC News, which followed up with Antal after Internet buzz indicated he voted in Democratic primaries before, Ryan did very little work only compared to the larger context of Saturday morning, when the kitchen fed 180 homeless people breakfast. Antal conceded that Ryan did wash several dirty dishes. Ryan might have done some actual work. But he did it under such a guise of integrity. Can you imagine a pizza shop owner picking up Ryan for a hug? Never, because it would wrinkle Ryans oversized suit. I sometimes hate that God answers my prayers. It was years ago, as a naive youngun at UF, when I beunraveled the enigma of my parents (and adults in general) and hungered for deeper mystic revelations. Foolishly, I asked God to let me see the world the way he saw it. Boy, did he answer. Toward the end of my sophomore year, I became aware of human beings as products for consumption by people coerced labor, but, more often, it seems that human beings are used as objects of pleasure. Fair enough. Ill put it into words that may resonate a bit more with our statistically driven news stream. There are more slaves today than there were during the entire transatlantic slave trade. Take that in for a moment. In light of this, I ask the question: Why would a loving God send people to hell? Simple. He answers prayers. Ill never forget the story about a girl who was a sex slave in an Indian brothel. Each night, tourists and sleazy men would violate her repeatedly as her pimps pockets fattened. In the middle of this, she somehow heard about the God who judged evildoers. Every night, she prayed that she would be liberated from her forced misery. She petitioned God for justice. One day, he answered. International Justice Mission found the brothel, had her pimp arrested and prosecuted and worked to change the legal infrastructure in her area. Google it if your jaw is still on ment intriguing. If youre a postmodernist thinker earning a degree in the West, the idea of eternal damnation may make your stomach turn. Evil is probably something that you experience on the occasional movie screen. However, if your entire existence has been marred by abuse, something in you longs for divine judgment. Personally, Id prefer a God who was all hugs and tummy rubs, but God is not a pansy. He is a lawgiver. I am speaking strictly in the Biblical sense, of course. The Bible outlines the character of God clearly. God is good at loving people, but he also loves goodness. Because he loves that which is good, he hates that which perverts it. It pleases him to settle accounts, like the judge who hands down a sentence, knowing that justice has been served. He patiently watches as we pillage and plunder, pollute and rape, gossip and ruin, lie and steal and, ultimately, make excuses for it all. We stand in his courtroom and audaciously hold him in contempt. We reason that its unfair to be sentenced for one weve only done wrong once. He prescribes a path that is scorned and disregarded at every turn, holding back his wrath from the people to whom he longs to be a father. He is patient, but there comes a day when the judgment hits the house. God hears the cries for justice, and he emphatically says yes! He is good at answering prayers. Heaven and hell are the answers to the prayers that we have prayed our whole life. Heaven is the response when we pray your will be done. Ryan Galloway is a religion senior at UF.

LAURA HOGANAlligator Contributing WriterUF students can learn to avoid and break up potentially violent situations in a personal protection workshop this weekend. The free seminar, The Art of Escape, will be from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday in Southwest Recreation Center Activity Room 3, said Richard Serota, 30-year-old industrial engineering graduate student and vice president of Gator Karate. Michael Kinney, a martial arts instructor who has taught around the world for about 50 years, will teach attendees techniques like how to watch and scan in dangerous situations and control breathing so they dont hyperventilate. I will teach them how to use their brain and their mouth and their body to diffuse a situation that might become violent, Kinney said. Serota hopes about 60 students will participate in the seminar. All UF students, regardless of gender, are welcome to attend, he said. Men are just as likely to get attacked, Serota said.

Libertarian vice presidential candidate Jim Gray addressed these topics and others in a speech to about 30 people at the Reitz Union on Tuesday. Gray, whose running mate is Gary Johnson, said he believes in bringing back prosperity, equal opportunities and freedom. We have an obese federal government today, Gray said. We have a government that is intruding into every part of our lives. Anyone could be labeled as a terrorist If you lose your civil liberties to the government, you never get them back, Gray said. His administration would repeal the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and close Guantanamo Bay, which he called an open sore on the soul of the United States of America. He also said the nations drug policy does not work, naming it the biggest failed policy second only to slavery. Political science freshman Josue Rivera, 18, said he wished more people knew about Grays speech. I think a lot of people are focused on the idea that they only have one of two choices, Rivera said. But there may be a third, more practical choice that people didnt consider, because they didnt know about it.Libertarian candidate speaksGray POLITICS

TIA MCDONALD WILL BE ON THE COVER OF AN AUSTRALIAN TEEN NOVEL. ALEXA VOLLANDAlligator Contributing WriterUF student and Miss Teen Florida 2011 is the face of Adora Niles. Tia McDonald, a 19-year-old public relations junior, was chosen from thousands of women to portray Niles, a character in the newly released teen fantasy novel Fairy Tale Once Upon A Time, Act 1. McDonald was photographed earlier this year as Niles for the cover of the novel, which was uploaded to self-publishing website, Lulu. com, by Australian author Somsay Toumngeun and formally released Sept. 15. McDonald said she found herself relating to Niles as she read the book. The character has a lot of qualities that I represent, she said. I feel like it was a part of me as well. Fairy Tale Once Upon A novel. He said he plans to publish a trilogy, which includes two acts per part. The second act of book one yet, but it should be out soon, he wrote in an email. He said he envisioned Niles as a ous and unwavering principles. Books like the Twilight and Hunger Games series have spurred a pop culture phenomenon Toumngeun said his 585-page book is unique. What sets Fairy Tale apart from the other teen novels is the focus of the story, he said. Despite all the magic, the monsters and the adventures, it is essentially about friendship and growing up. McDonald heard about the search for the books cover model through an international modeling agency. After the applicants were narrowed down by physical criteria, Toumngeun interviewed the hopefuls. It sealed the deal, McDonald said. I was so excited when he called and told me the news. She bought a $2,000 plane ticket to Australia for the four-hour photo shoot. Toumngeun said McDonald lived up to his expectations of Niles character. Upon meeting Tia, it became apparent that she was that person, and possessed all the qualities I was after and more, he said. She is perfect for the part, and I feel there is no one else more suitable. Although shes traveled the world gracing magazine pages and runways, McDonald said shes proud of her appearance on the novels cover. With magazines, people will read them and then a new one comes out, she said. But I will always get acter.

The money, which comes from SG reserves, allocates $25,000 to the center and $7,000 to the water fountains project. The center will be in Yon Hall and will serve as a gathering place for student veterans. The center will be set up within the next few months by the Department of Housing and Residence Education, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said after the meeting. exterior doors, three interior doors and two bathrooms compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. A sink and ice maker will also be installed, according to the bill. [Its] to give back to veterans who have done so much for us, said Budget Committee Chairman Joey Michaels. The $7,000 will be used to to promote sustainability on campus. In the next few weeks, gooseneck faucets will be added to 16 existing fountains to accommodate water in Matherly Hall, two in the Hub, three in Turlington Hall, two in Norman Hall, three in Weimer Hall and three in the Levin College of Law, Bonarrigo said. The Senate also passed a resolution honoring Christian Aguilar, a UF student who went missing Sept. 20. The Senate did not pass a resolution asking UF administration to halt the removal of independently owned newspaper racks. During the SG elections earlier this month, about 60 percent of students who voted on the referendum voted that they did not want the university to remove the racks. Sen. Cory Yeffet spoke against the resolution, saying the Alligator, which is mentioned in the resolution, is not a student organization and should not be treated differently than other publications. After the meeting, Sen. Umair Asghar, who wrote the resolution, said the Senate didnt represent student opinion. An injustice was done to the Student Body who voted to keep the racks, he said. Representatives from Nightlife Navigators also spoke about a new handicapaccessible Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol vehicle that would become available near the end of the semester.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Reed Up For NCAA Honor Jordan Reed was one of 25 players named to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, given to the NCAAs best tight end. UFS MIKE GILLISLEE AND SOUTH CAROLINAS MARCUS LATTIMORE LEAD OFFENSES. JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer On Nov. 13, 2010, a trip to Atlanta was at stake. South Carolina and Florida played in The Swamp with the Southeastern Conference East title on the line. The winner would face Auburn in the Georgia Dome. During the next 60 minutes of football, Marcus Lattimore outmuscled and overpowered the Gators. The freshman carried the ball 40 times for 212 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-14 Gamecocks win. Nearly two years later, Lattimore is a changed man. He suffered an ACL tear in his left knee against Mississippi State last October and missed South CaroFlorida safety Josh Evans was on sees a different Lattimore than before. Hes a good back, physical guy, Evans said. I think he lost a step a little bit from what weve seen before. ... I think thats due to the injury. There was no easing back into the lineup for Lattimore this season. Not even one year removed from knee surgery, Lattimore reassumed his workhorse role in the Gamecocks offense. He leads the SEC with 129 carries through seven games. Gators coach Will Muschamp is convinced Lattimore is back to normal. Hes gotten his strength back and hes a one-cut runner, Muschamp said. Hes an outstanding runner. Florida has a north-south runner of its own in senior Mike Gillislee. While last seasons Gators relied more on jet sweeps and endarounds with speedsters Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey, UF has a more traditional approach in the ground game this year. Perhaps his most impressive game to date was Floridas 14-6 win against LSU on Oct. 6. Gillislee racked up 146 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries against the David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior running back Mike Gillislee leaps over Vanderbilts Chase Garnham during UFs 31-17 win on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium. Powerful backs to face off on SaturdayADAM BOMB This season has been one of tests for Florida. UF visited Texas A&M and the 12th Man, traveled to Knoxville to face pass-happy Tennessee and hosted a year ago in LSU. So far, the Gators have passed. It doesnt get any easier for Florida when No. 9 South Carolina and freakish defensive end Jadeveon Clowney come to Gainesville. The Gators are facing more challenges How the team responds after reaching its highest ranking since Tim Tebow was quarterback will go a long way in proving Floridas worth among the nations elite. Will Muschamp refused to acknowledge BCS rankings. He said on Monday that nothing matters besides playing South Carolina this Saturday in The Swamp. Muschamp has a point: Championships arent won in the middle of October. But for a team that spent the last two years trapped in mediocrity, being No. 2 in the nation means something. It means the second-year coach has changed the teams identity to the physical, no-excuses approach. national championship discussion after two years of futility. It means Florida football is back. In 12 of the 14 years that the BCS ranking system has been in place, at least one of the teams in the top two of the initial poll made an appearance in the BCS Championship Game. With Alabama in the top spot and Florida right behind, the Gators are on track to reach their third BCS title game in seven years. Florida hosts South Carolina in a game that will be won in the trenches, as UFs victory against LSU was. Both Florida and South Carolina have elite running backs that carry the football close to 20 times per game. Both teams have athletic quarterbacks that can win games with their feet if need be. The UF community is abuzz about a football game that the Gators, on paper, should win. You walk through the campus and theres people telling you good job and keep it up, fullback Hunter Joyer said. No. 2 BCS ranking means Florida is back in the spotlight GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer If Jeff Driskel were a defensive coordinator, he knows how he would try to slow down Floridas offense. I would load the box, Driskel said. Thats what teams are going to start doing. Obviously, we havent made that many plays in the passing game. Through six games, Florida has the least productive passing offense in the Southeastern Conference, throwing for only 145 yards per contest. While UFs rushing attack is second in the SEC with 233.3 yards per game, Driskel has thrown only four touchdown passes, failing to eclipse 100 yards in either of the past two weeks. But Driskel and offensive coordinator Brent Pease are concerned about only one stat: six wins, zero losses. Thats all that matters, Driskel said. If youre winning, everythings all right. Obviously weve got to get better in the passing game, but were winning games. Said Pease: I dont really care how it gets done, as long as were productive with what we do and score points. Pease added that he would prefer Florida be more balanced offensively so opponents cant load the box on every play, but not at the expense of the game plan the Gators have drawn up to exploit the oppositions weaknesses. Counting sacks as pass attempts, Florida has run the ball on 65.2 percent of its offensive plays this season. That imbalance is a far cry from Peases offense at Boise State last season, which attempted 485 passes and 484 rushes. Still, the coordinator isnt tempted to get back to his roots. He just wants to stick with whats working. Lets not get greedy here as a coach and say, I dont like that. Im throwing the ball because thats what we all love to do, Pease said. If Jeff Driskel can carry the ball 70 yards and outrun everybody, hes getting the ball. If Mike Gillislee can get the ball and outrun everybody, hes Gators content with run-heavy approach UF Fo otball SEE GILLISLEE, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM BOMB, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15 Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam QuotableI was about ready to get up and go to the bathroom.

See story, page 14.

BARNEY HAS FIVE GOALS. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator WriterMcKenzie Barney has scored many goals in her career at Florida, but after suffering season-ending facial fractures in 2011, one goal overshadowed the rest: staying healthy. That was kind of one of my biggest goals she said. Making sure that I have enough time to get treatment, get rest, stay hydrated so I can be at my best for this team. Barney has achieved that goal for most of this season. She missed the Gators 3-1 victory against Ole Miss with a knee injury but has played in the rest of Floridas 16 games. Being healthy isnt enough for the redshirt senior. As a forward, she needs to score. Thats kind of my job, she said. For the past four seasons, Bar ney has done her job. So far in 2012, she is tied with Havana Solaun and Jo Dragotta for Despite being one of the team leaders in scoring, Barneys season still falls short of matching her preyear of action with the team after suffering an ACL tear her freshman year, she scored eight goals. In 2010, she led the Southeastern Conference champions with 14 goals. In total, Barney has scored 31 goals, which is good for seventh in Floridas record books, behind players like FIFA Womens World Cup Champion Danielle Fotopoulos and Olympic gold medal winner Abby Wambach. It is an absolute honor to be on that list with them, Barney said. As good as Barney has been on she thinks Barneys biggest impact Her legacy is going to be a lot more than just goals scored, Bur leigh said. Shes been the epitome leader. She always gets this team Her ability to recognize what the team needs and provide that is really important. Senior Erika Tymrak has played with Barney in the attacking third for the past four years, and the two have combined for 11 goals.

Saying theyre really excited for this weekend, so its a pretty good vibe. Joyer said he received the same treatment before last seasons matchup against Alabama, but unfortunately for Florida, the good vibes were limited for the remainder of 2011. The Gators couldnt generate a consistent running or passing attack, they couldnt defend late in games, and sically, they stunk. Fans have seen the transformation from a barely bowl-eligible team to an SEC heavyweight. It helps a lot, senior safety Josh tage.

Hammond isnt the only player not looking at the rankings. The entire team has scoffed at the notion that being No. 2 holds any sigSure, championships arent won in month.

He can ruin your day. Clowney, a sophomore, has racked up 6.5 sacks this season. At 6 feet, 6 inches and 256 pounds, Clowney has the size, athleticism and quickness to be a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. Clowney enrolled at South Car olina as the topranked player in the 2011 class, according to Rivals.com. Although Clowney wont be eligible to turn pro until 2014, some scouts have projected him as an Draft. Hes what youre looking for, Muschamp said. Muschamp and Frankie Hammond Jr. said the Gators will likely try to slow Clowney by chipping him with a back or tight end. Pease said cut blocking Clowney wont work because he has the ability to jump over the block. The key, Pease said, is to be physical and run at him.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterLast season, Kenny Boynton had an opportunity to advance the Gators to the Final Four. After Bradley Beal missed a threepointer with 11 seconds left on the clock, he grabbed his own rebound and sent it back out to Boynton, who was waiting behind the arc. Boynton missed, Beal fouled and Louisville increased its lead as UFs season ended in a 72-68 loss. It wasnt how the Gators wanted to end their season, and it wasnt the reer at Florida. a winner, and thats one reason I came back, Boynton said. When you have one more shot at it, its only one way. Youre only thinking championship. Im going to try my best personally and to push this team to get deep in the tournament again this year. ton is only 501 points shy of Ronnie Williams school record of 2,090. Boynton has averaged 529.7 points years. Boynton also hopes that returning chances of making it to the NBA. Playing point guard will help my chances in getting to the next level, Boynton said. I think last year was a strong draft, and I would have a better chance in going this year. Boynton will be changing roles this season. Coach Billy Donovan would like to see Boynton be UFs new vocal leader after the team lost point guard Erving Walker to graduation. With Erving not being here, hopefully [Boynton] can step up into more of a leadership role for us, Donovan said. Kenny has been one of those kind of quiet leaders where he doesnt say a whole lot. I think a lot of times its done through how he performs and how hard he plays. Although he wants Boynton to be more vocal on the court, Donovan is cautious about putting the senior in an uncomfortable situation. Last season, Donovan pushed the quiet Walker into a leadership role a expected. However, Boynton has enjoyed his new role so far. He said hes good at breaking down plays for the freshmen. In addition to replacing Walker as a leader, Florida will need BoynWalker left Florida as its all-time assists leader, racking up 547 in four years. Boynton also plans to focus on season. Boynton made 45.8 percent of his before hitting only 34.9 percent after playing South Carolina on Jan. 14. Boynton shot only 5 of 24 from beyond the arc in the NCAA Tour nament. Im going to try to stay in the gym as much as possible this year, Boynton said. Just get a lot of repetition. Basically prepare my body for the middle of the season when my body gets tired. Boynton hopes that spending his summer in Las Vegas working on his conditioning and playing als such as Dion Waiters, Maalik Wayns, Tu Holloway and Hollis Thompson will help him excel in his new role this season. I pretty much tried to play point guard no matter what team I was on, Boynton said. The way they play is more physical. It helped me coming in every day and working with guys like that.

Boynton wants to help his NBA chances by playing point guard in 2012. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator WriterCarlie Needles expected to contribute heavily last season. The redshirt freshman from Highlands Ranch, Colo., anticipated joining a Gators backcourt full of veteran talent she could learn from and play alongside. On Nov. 6, everything changed. Five days before Floridas womens basketball team opened its season against Michigan, Needles year ended. She suffered ACL and meniscus tears in her left knee during a scrimmage. When trainers gave her the news days later, she felt a range of emotions. I cried for about 15 seconds, she said. Then I thought about what I had to do next to get back. She spent the offseason walking through Ben Hill Grifknee before beginning therapy sessions. Eleven months after the injury, she is back. With much of last seasons backcourt gone, Needles will step into a prominent role. Jaterra Bonds is the lone returning guard who averaged more than 20 minutes per game in 2011-12. Gators coach Amanda Butler said she sees similarities between Bonds and Needles. I compare [Needles] to Jaterra in the way that she leads and the way that she is so aggressive in how she controls the not hesitant at all to address a teammate in a positive way and certainly sometimes when its got to be in an enforcing way. Needles said there were facets of the game she better understands after spending a season watching from the bench. Most notably, she said the team has to improve its ish games. Of UFs 13 losses last season, 10 were decided by six points or fewer including two in overtime. Its the little things that you dont think about that make a difference, she said, identifying the teams poor percentage from the free-throw line late in Butler agreed, saying the Gators have to learn to close utes, a point when UF often let games slip away last season. That begins with the focus Needles can bring in her return to the court. Carlie has taken full advantage of the year that she did have to sit and wait, Butler said. She was already a bright, and it was almost like pouring a bunch of gasoline on that passion that was already inside of her.Back after ACL tear, guard ready to lead Senior looking to take on new roleNeedles UF Mens Bask etball
