GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer As the fourth quarter wore on, Jon Halapio could see the fatigue creeping across LSU defensive tackle Josh Downs face. Floridas offense was in the midst of a stretch of 25 consecutive run plays, Every down pushed the Tigers closer to the edge. Jeff Driskel for 3. Mack Brown for 5. Brown for 7. Gillislee for 3. Solomon Patton for 3. Downs and the rest of the Tigers defensive line were running on empty. I was looking in his eyes, and he was dead tired, Halapio said. Meanwhile, Gillislee and the Gators were only getting stronger. The man many Florida players have rector of strength and conditioning Jeff Dillman, was roaming the sidelines. In all likelihood, he was yelling. Shouting Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, is Dillmans signature, but he often takes a more focused approach. Thats why we play four, Dillman minutes. Just keep punching them in the mouth. After the Gators consistently wilted mans emphasis on closing strong hit home in the offseason. And if Florida needs any extra reminders, Dillman is there on Saturdays, too. He was probably the most pumped-up person on the sidelines, Jaylen Watkins said after Floridas win against LSU. You would think that he was going in and out of the game. Turning the team coach Will Musovernight process. Florida was outscored 72-22 in the fourth quarter of Southeastern Conference games last season. Most of the Gators have that number committed to memory. Coach Dillman pretty much ingrained it in our minds, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said. Every workout we came into, he reminded us. It stuck in our heads. We dont want to have that score. It needs to be Dillman has used inspirational videos and quotes from athletes like Michael Jordan, but perhaps nothing provided the Gators greater motivation than that score. Muschamp said the ers heads. The number compelled them to work harder in the weight room. When Dillman was hired in January, and by the midpoint of spring practice offensive coordinator Brent Pease could see the difference in his linemen. Their bodies are changing, Pease son. The workload and intensity remained high through summer and into fall camp. It was hard, Driskel said. [Dillman] said going in: Its going to be hard, but its going to pay off and youre going to see the results during them now. Through six games, the Gators have edge in rushing and win the fourthquarter time of possession battle by an The trend ties in to another of Dillstrong. When Dillman left IMG Academy in Bradenton after two years to take a position at Florida, director Trevor Moawad knew where to begin his search for a replacement. Moawad again plucked from the coaching tree of LSU strength and conthe Tigers and has produced some of the best strength coaches in all of sports. In addition to Dillman and Scott Gadeken Dillmans replacement as the head of physical conditioning sculpted Florida State head strength and conditioning coach Vic Viloria and Alabama director of strength and conditioning Scott Cochran. LSUs assistant strength and condilearned the value of a strength program based on Olympic lifting, which Moawad described as a lost art. Many modern weight-training programs focus on toning muscles and preventing injuries, but Olympic training is about building explosive strength. The Gators have shifted their weight room work to include mostly snatches and clean and jerks. With fewer reps at heavier weight, Floridas players have added mass and explosiveness. Defensive tackle Omar Hunter said he gained more in the most recent offseason than in any of his previous four with UF. I feel like Im more explosive now than Ive ever been, Hunter said. Bostic echoed the sentiment. I feel more explosive, stronger than Ive ever been, he said. Muschamp saw the value in the system when he was with LSU as the When Mickey Marotti UFs strength coach of seven seasons left Meyer at Ohio State, Muschamp saw an opportunity to get back to the old core lifting that I was accustomed to. I saw the success that we had doing the core lifts and squat and power clean and the development of those players [at LSU], Muschamp said. When Jeff and I talked, thats what I said I want. Were going back to what we know. What Dillman brings to Floridas weight room is more than just an intimate knowledge of elite physical training. He brings energy, he brings enthusiasm, and he brings passion. When you walked in the IMG athletic center, you knew you were in Jeff Dillmans house, Moawad said. Whether you were Maria Sharapova, knew that you were coming in there to work. Whether he was working with a round NFL Draft pick or the senior Dillman approached training the same way. Theyd all hear the Yeah, yeah, yeah yell and theyd all get a taste of his comedic side, which included shouts like Wakey, wakey, eggs and bakey, for early-morning workouts. Moawad, who specializes in mental conditioning, saw how everything from Dillmans tone of voice, to his helped him get the most out of athletes. Youre going to be motivated through fear, through incentive or through your desire to be great, Moawad said. Jeff knew how to use all three of those very, very well. Dillman always moved around the weight room quickly, wanting to be at the eye of the storm, as he called it. Moawad said the shift from the technicians IMG usually employed to a motivator like Dillman came as a shock to the athletes. Not long after Dillman was hired, they all came around. They loved him, Moawad said. Dillman has brought that attitude to Florida. He has a lot of energy, Bostic said. Hes funny. He helps us have a good time in the weight room. Dillman has also brought a championship pedigree. After winning a BCS Championship the Tigers for two more seasons before becoming the director of strength and conditioning at Appalachian State, his alma mater. Appalachian State was coming off of an FCS national championship, and Dillman played an integral role in winning two more. While he put his own stamp on things, it was more a matter of him maintaining and building upon what was already here, which he did, Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore said. He was a huge part of us winning two Dillman won national championand Appalachian State. Florida is No. 2 in the BCS poll. When Muschamp took to the podium after Floridas win against LSU, seconds. I cant speak further without talking about Jeff Dillman, Muschamp said. It was very evident on the footfootball team. Later that night, Pease sent Dillman and assistant director for strength and conditioning Jesse Ackerman a text message: Thanks. Youre doing a great job. Thanks for showing up in this game. Our guys got stronger as it went along, Pease said. When I look down there and [the LSU players] have got their hands on their hips, and our guys are still rearing to go, thats a product of what theyve done from the summer. In one offseason, Dillman has helped bring about a total transformanational championship race. Last year we werent in that kind of conditioning, center Jonotthan Harrison said. That kind of condition is sorry. But now, this year, its really showing that all our work in the offseason is really paying off. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator. org.

KATHRYN VARNA proposed plan to build a nuclear power plant near Levy County has a small group of Alachua County residents in an uproar over the potential environmental and safety hazards, despite assurances regulated. Francine Robinson, chairwoman of the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility in the Florida League of Conservation Voters, held a press conference in front of the Alachua County Family and Civil Courthouse Thursday regarding resident opposition to the plant. Nine people, including four reporters, attended. Its an environmental disaster, former Gainesville Mayor Tom Bussing said at the press conference. Mark Goldstein, another former Gainesville mayor, said hes concerned about the possibility of nuclear exposure to Alachua County if the plant is built. Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Duke Energy, is building the plant to boost energy production in the state, said Suzanne Grant, a Progress Energy Florida spokeswoman.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterFour Florida Supreme Court justices left their black robes in Tallahassee to speak at a forum at the UF Levin College of Law on Thursday afternoon. About 120 people attended The Importance of an Independent Judiciary, an event sponsored by the Gerald T. Bennett Inn of Court and the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Law Students Division. The majority of the justices, four out of seven, responded to the invitation to participate in the forum. Justices Jorge Labarga, R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince discussed merit retention decided through voter election as a threat to a fair and balanced judicial system. The people of Florida deserve a judicial branch that is not beholden to the big guys or the little guys, Lewis said during the discussion. UF adjunct law professor Carl B. Schwait began the event, and Dean Jon L. Mills introduced the justices. We take for granted what the Constitution did for an independent judiciary, Mills told the crowd. Afterward, a panel of three law students asked questions to the justices about politicizing merit retention and diminished judicial funding. After the event, president of the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Law Student Division Allie Menegakis said she felt educating the public on merit retention was important. If law students dont know what it is, how do undergraduates know what it is? Menegakis asked. Second-year law student Sabrina Jadunandan, 22, explained that merit retention is a burden on the justices shoulders. Its important to see the judges per spective, Jadunandan said.

years. Robinson said she is concerned about the amount of water the nuclear plant would take from the Florida aquifer, saying the plant would require one million gallons a day. Less than 1 percent of the water to run the plant will come from the aquifer, Grant said. The rest will come from the Gulf of Mexico. Robinson said she was also concerned about the 50-mile emergency evacuation radius, which covers Alachua, Levy and other neighboring counties. Grant said she wasnt sure the scope of the radius but said there is an emergency plan in place. There is also a plan to store nuclear waste on-site, she said. To fund the project, Progress Energy Florida customers, including UF, have already seen increases in their electric bills. Robinson said these customers will not get refunds if the plant isnt built. Customers with a 1,000kilowatt-hour bill are currently paying an additional $2.67 per month, she said. The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel, which is part of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, will host a hearing at 9 a.m. on Oct. 31 at the Levy County Courthouse, where community concerns will be addressed, Grant said We developed this plan so that we would meet all the regulatory requirements, Grant said. In addressing these contentions, we feel the project remains viable and will continue to go forward. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 Be a part of something BIG GIVE B LOOD.Over 1,000 people gathered to form one of needs just as many donors per week to meet call 888.795.2707 Photo by Photography 35 NUCLEAR, from page 1There is a hearing Oct. 31LOCAL EMILY PADGETTAlligator Contributing Writer Gainesville residents is now available through a new texting service. United Way of North Central Florida launched a free texting service, United 2-1-1, a few weeks ago. The service, which helps people with issues related to housing, food, elder care and utility bills, was previously available if residents called or emailed the center. Now, people can text 898-211 or TXT211 for help, said Debbie Mason, organization president and CEO. Were always looking for ways to enhance our reach, she said. I think its going to be well received. Those needing help should text their ZIP code to 2-1-1 to get started. Counselors will respond and do their best to refer people to a place nearby, Mason said. For example, if a person needed a meal, counselors would text him or her directions to the nearest food bank. We, as human beings, all need help at some point in our lives, she said. United Way 2-1-1 is the organizations signature service, Mason said, and has been around for more than 30 years. She said she thinks texting will better serve current users and will help the organization reach out to more people who need the services. As technology evolved, its allowed us to serve people with different modalities, she said. Now, texting is more common, so weve evolved our modality to include that. Police spokesman, said some people are afraid to pick up the phone to get help. When you get to a point when you need to ask for help, its embarrassing, he said. Text can be a little more anonymous. Mason agreed, adding that the texting option might encourage people to seek help earlier. Tobias said the service could cause students are tied to their cellphones, and an electronic option might be more approachable. Bob Woods, city spokesman, said statistics show that young people use texting the most now, but older people are beginning to text more often. Mason said United Way 2-1-1 is important because it serves residents of all races, ethnicities and income levels. The texting option is especially helpful for those who dont have access to a computer, Internet or a home phone, she said. Woods said its a valuable resource for United Way to make sure those looking for help can get it. Its another tool in the toolbox, he said.Texts help residents make ends meet We, as human beings, all need help at some point in our lives.Debbie Masonorganization president and CEO

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The Nobel Peace Prize, perhaps at one time a universally admired achievement, has managed to take yet another step toward becoming a complete farce. Just three years after granting newly elected Barack Obama the prize for little more than the content of his campaign speeches, the politicians that comprise the Norwegian Nobel Committee gave the award to the European Union, a decision that left much of the world scratching its collective head in confusion. According to the Nobel Committee, the EU deserved the honor for having over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. Essentially, the committee deemed it appropriate to reward most of the members of an entire continent for behaving exactly as they should for not attacking one another. Of course, many EU member states have the past six decades. But an undistinguished history of participation in international military operations is not enough to discredit the EU alone; after all, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization not the EU serves as the military coordinator for much of the continent. No, the Nobel Committees decision is shared ideals of the EU too much credit for the continuing peace on the continent, and it completely ignores the present-day quagThe idea that European peace is a direct result of the liberal values shared throughout the continent is a nice one. This type of thinking appeals to our idealism as good Westerners and to our senses of democracy, freedom and fairness. But solely concentrating on the proliferation of liberalism as the cause for peace, as the Nobel Committee does, leaves a much more visceral factor out of the equation the rather large United States military presence in Europe. From the end of World War II to the modern day, the U.S. has maintained significant amounts of personnel and equipment across the European continent. The explicit purpose of such an expensive and large force approximately 90,000 men and women is not to prevent, for example, France and Germany from attacking one another again. Rather, the preservation of such a presence grants the U.S. easier access to the Middle East and offers the military a better position from which to respond to emer gency situations. Regardless of U.S. intention, however, European states are They have to worry less about providing for their own defenses and can concentrate funds and efforts on welfare programs or other potentially stabilizing projects. And, of course, a large and capable American military presence is likely to deter an unfavorable balance of power from materializing in Europe just in case, say, Germany started wondering about exactly muscles. So perhaps the Nobel Committee should have awarded the prize to the U.S. Army as a joint declaration for having over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. And of course, the EU as it exists now is in rather poor shape. Anyone not living under a rock is aware sis that has been ongoing for several years. petent countries, such as Greece and Spain, have been forced by more wealthy mainly Germany, to impose strict austerity measures on irate populaces, which have responded with protests that have at times devolved into violent riots. At this point, it is not unreasonable to state that the only glue holding the EUs to act as a bailout fund; nor is it unreasonable to assume that German tolerance and patience will eventually evaporate. If this happens and chaos results, the abandoned, and the entire ideal of European unity will have been dealt a death blow. The Nobel Committee is obviously well aware of the fragile state of the EU. Perhaps it felt a Nobel Prize would do something for morale on the continent. But there were other, more deserving candidates. And how such an esteemed body could so blatantly ignore the harsh status quo of its chosen winner, in the form of current unrest and possibly impending pandemonium, is inexplicable.

HOrses Helping PEople Inc. will have its annual Fall Festival fundraiser Sunday at 9722 SW 153 Ave. in Archer. HOPE will host pony rides, a bounce house, carnival games, a petting zoo and live music, said Kristen Cooper, executive director of HOPE. The festival is free, and activities cost between $1 and $4. Cooper said she hopes to raise $3,500 for the upkeep of the property and animals. The organization provides occupational therapy for patients of all ages that have a variety of disabilities. It was started 12 years ago in a Shands at UF physicians backyard and is now at a 40-acre location, said Cooper. The therapy is provided by the programs six-and-a-half horses: Candy, Sammy, Chilly, Alvin, Andy, Harry and Rocky, the miniature horse. The horses, which are often older, are donated by people in the community, said Cooper. The horses can really judge who needs them and what they need out of them, she said. For Cathi Brown, a founder and board member of the organization, the outcome is well worth the cost of upkeep. This gives patients a new view of the world, she said.

UF will face LSU on the road and Arkansas at home from the alligatorSports.orgCheck out our site during the weekend for coverage of Saturdays showdown against South Carolina, Betsy Smith and the Florida volleyball team are gearing See story, page 16. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Hunter Joyer didnt mind stepping out of the spotlight. In fact, he did it willingly. I really dont care, Joyer said. That doesnt bother me at all. Im not looking for TV time or my name to be talked about a lot. I just want the team to do well. The sophomore fullback had been a running back his entire life before coming to Florida. During his senior season at Tampa Catholic High, Joyer led the team with touchdowns. In 19 games as a Gator, Joyer has carried the ball just 20 times. With reduced carries came an exponentially increased blocking responsibility. Although Joyer braced his new role. I just felt like thats the reason that Im here, Joyer said. Im not here to get touches, get carries. I didnt really know any fundamentals, but it wasnt exnot too easy. Its not as easy as people probably think it is. Pease said that Joyer is doing more than just throwing a block taking the scheme into account and deciding which defender he should pick up. his guys arent making tackles, Pease said. I mean not just for Jeff (Driskel), but hes done it for Mike (Gillislee). Joyers natural blocking ability has cleared the way for Gillislee this season. Floridas starting running back leads all Southeastern Conference backs with 615 rushing yards. Joyer said he enjoys being the lead blocker for After a weekend of debauchery torSports crew comes home country music and Coyote Ugly saloons, but were just as excited to see eryone else is for one reason: Erin Andrews. Oh, wait. That was awkward. No matter who the sideline reporter and photographers will be behind the scenes creating a multimedia piece to be featured on alligatorSports.org (Sorry for the shameless plug). Sounds exciting, right? In the meantime, we let two of our writers debate one of this weekends showdowns. Now, onto the picks West Virginia (-2.5) will make Kansas State wish it was back in Kansas because Geno Smith is 5-1 in games following a loss during his three years as the Mountaineers starting quarterback. This gunslinger is one quarterback you aged 230 passing yards per game on 65 percent passing with 13 touchdowns in those games. Clearly, bounce-back games are just as automatic for Smith as picking wrong is for Lee Corso. ADAM PINCUSKansas State (+2.5) will send West Virginia tumbling down its mountain because The Mountaineers are down in the dumps. Their Heisman-frontrunner quarterback squashed their chances of hosting GameDay with the most their blowout loss to Texas Tech last is already planning its trip to Manhattan, Kan., to do a feature on Heisman darkhorse Collin Klein, who has the Wildcats sitting pretty at 6-0.

Well, I guess you got your moneys worth! Gillislee. I think we all do, Joyer said of taking pride in Gillislees statistics. All of us, the offensive line as well, because its more of a team thing. But hes still a great back, he deserves all the credit and everything for what he does. Another job that often falls on Joyers shoulders is protecting Driskel when he drops back to pass. On Saturday against South Carolina, that may entail blocking Jadeveon Clowney. The 6-foot-6, 256-pound sophomore defensive end is second in the SEC in both sacks and tackles for loss. Joyer said the task is a challenge hes not shying away from. Hes a phenomenal player, Joyer said of Clowney. Probably one of the best in the nation, overall, so I really look forward to it. Whether he is humbly accepting a switch to a less glamorous position or eagerly taking on a tough blocking assignment, Joyer displays a willingness to do whatever the offense asks of him.

Senior Betsy Smith said the controversial spike was yet another indication that matches against Southeastern Conference rivals, like Auburn, are more intense than those out of conference. She added that the Gators will have to put their emotions aside and focus on volleyball. There are certain players that are very emotional players, Smith said. We knew that [Bullock] was going to be an emotional player. We dont take it as anything. We expected it. We try to just (say), All right, on to the next point.

Coach Mary Wise said because Florida plays almost every SEC rival twice each season, the Gators get to know their opponents. Wise said Floridas emotion comes from playing opponents it faces on a regular basis, and she loves that conference play can bring out that type of passion. In fact, she said she admires the nosed volleyball. The biggest difference is the familiarity, Wise said. Theres only a few teams we dont play twice so they are so familiar with each other. ... (Bullock) is one of our staffs favorite players because of how hard she plays. Weve seen this for four years. She is one of my favorites. I love how she plays. Im going to send her a graduation card.

JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer When Will Muschamp thinks of legendary coaches in the Southeastern Conference, he thinks of headand a visor. There are really two coaches that come to the forefront of your mind as far as what theyve done for this league, Muschamp said. Thats Bear Bryant and Steve Spurrier. Spurrier has a statue outside of memorates his playing career at UF, which included winning the Heisman Trophy in 1966. However, what Spurrier accomplished with a clipboard on the sidelines proved far more instrumental in establishing Florida as a premier college football program. In the 83 seasons before Spurrier arrived at UF in 1990, the Gators averaged just 5.3 wins per season and had never won a conference championship, let alone a national title. During his 12-year tenure, Spur rier averaged 10.2 victories per season, won six SEC titles and dechampionship in 1996. He also introduced the Fun n Gun offense to the SEC, which helped quarterback Danny Wuerffel win the 1996 Heisman Trophy. With Wuerffel under center, Florida bethan 500 points in a season for four straight years (1993-96) since the NCAA started keeping statistics in 1937. You look at what he did when he came to our league, Muschamp said. It was more of a 3 yards and a pile of dust league, and he came in and spread the ball out a little bit. Said UF linebacker Jon Bostic: He likes to air it out. He can draw up a lot of differ ent things and give a defense headaches. UF quarterback Jeff Driskel does not know much from Spurriers tenure at Florida except what the record books say. However, hes well aware of the Ol Ball Coachs legacy. Its hard to miss the statue, Driskel said. Its hard to miss a guy that named our stadium. For the past eight years, Spurrier has been working to match his success at Florida in Columbia, S.C. In his eighth season at South Carolina, Spurrier has already put his name in the record books. In 2010, he led the Gamecocks Championship, which he clinched with a 36-14 blowout win against the Gators in The Swamp. Last season, he led South Carolina to a programin Gamecocks history. Twice in his tenure at South Car olina, Spurrier has beaten Florida to prevent the Gators from advancing to the SEC Championship Game. Most recently, it happened in 2010. It was tough, Gators wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said of watching the Gamecocks celebrate winning the SEC East in Gainesville two years ago. When Spurrier and South Caroum on Saturday at 3:30 p.m., it will between the two squads. Raising the stakes, the Gators and the Gamecocks are currently the top two teams in the SEC East standings. Saturdays game will feature two key contenders in the 2012 national championship race, and Spurrier is responsible for building each program. Spurrier is focused on delivering ball, much like he did for Florida. He has tried to downplay his connection to UF this week, but admitted returning to The Swamp is still an odd feeling. I guess it is a little unusual to be on the other team when you come into the ball park and your name is on the wall up there, Spurrier said.

GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer As the fourth quarter wore on, Jon Halapio could see the fatigue creeping across LSU defensive tackle Josh Downs face. Floridas offense was in the midst of a stretch of 25 consecutive run plays, Every down pushed the Tigers closer to the edge. Jeff Driskel for 3. Mack Brown for 5. Brown for 7. Gillislee for 3. Solomon Patton for 3. Downs and the rest of the Tigers defensive line were running on empty. I was looking in his eyes, and he was dead tired, Halapio said. Meanwhile, Gillislee and the Gators were only getting stronger. The man many Florida players have rector of strength and conditioning Jeff Dillman, was roaming the sidelines. In all likelihood, he was yelling. Shouting Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, is Dillmans signature, but he often takes a more focused approach. Thats why we play four, Dillman minutes. Just keep punching them in the mouth. After the Gators consistently wilted mans emphasis on closing strong hit home in the offseason. And if Florida needs any extra reminders, Dillman is there on Saturdays, too. He was probably the most pumped-up person on the sidelines, Jaylen Watkins said after Floridas win against LSU. You would think that he was going in and out of the game. Turning the team coach Will Musovernight process. Florida was outscored 72-22 in the fourth quarter of Southeastern Conference games last season. Most of the Gators have that number committed to memory. Coach Dillman pretty much ingrained it in our minds, wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said. Every workout we came into, he reminded us. It stuck in our heads. We dont want to have that score. It needs to be Dillman has used inspirational videos and quotes from athletes like Michael Jordan, but perhaps nothing provided the Gators greater motivation than that score. Muschamp said the ers heads. The number compelled them to work harder in the weight room. When Dillman was hired in January, and by the midpoint of spring practice offensive coordinator Brent Pease could see the difference in his linemen. Their bodies are changing, Pease son. The workload and intensity remained high through summer and into fall camp. It was hard, Driskel said. [Dillman] said going in: Its going to be hard, but its going to pay off and youre going to see the results during them now. Through six games, the Gators have edge in rushing and win the fourthquarter time of possession battle by an The trend ties in to another of Dillstrong. When Dillman left IMG Academy in Bradenton after two years to take a position at Florida, director Trevor Moawad knew where to begin his search for a replacement. Moawad again plucked from the coaching tree of LSU strength and conthe Tigers and has produced some of the best strength coaches in all of sports. In addition to Dillman and Scott Gadeken Dillmans replacement as the head of physical conditioning sculpted Florida State head strength and conditioning coach Vic Viloria and Alabama director of strength and conditioning Scott Cochran. LSUs assistant strength and condilearned the value of a strength program based on Olympic lifting, which Moawad described as a lost art. Many modern weight-training programs focus on toning muscles and preventing injuries, but Olympic training is about building explosive strength. The Gators have shifted their weight room work to include mostly snatches and clean and jerks. With fewer reps at heavier weight, Floridas players have added mass and explosiveness. Defensive tackle Omar Hunter said he gained more in the most recent offseason than in any of his previous four with UF. I feel like Im more explosive now than Ive ever been, Hunter said. Bostic echoed the sentiment. I feel more explosive, stronger than Ive ever been, he said. Muschamp saw the value in the system when he was with LSU as the When Mickey Marotti UFs strength coach of seven seasons left Meyer at Ohio State, Muschamp saw an opportunity to get back to the old core lifting that I was accustomed to. I saw the success that we had doing the core lifts and squat and power clean and the development of those players [at LSU], Muschamp said. When Jeff and I talked, thats what I said I want. Were going back to what we know. What Dillman brings to Floridas weight room is more than just an intimate knowledge of elite physical training. He brings energy, he brings enthusiasm, and he brings passion. When you walked in the IMG athletic center, you knew you were in Jeff Dillmans house, Moawad said. Whether you were Maria Sharapova, knew that you were coming in there to work. Whether he was working with a round NFL Draft pick or the senior Dillman approached training the same way. Theyd all hear the Yeah, yeah, yeah yell and theyd all get a taste of his comedic side, which included shouts like Wakey, wakey, eggs and bakey, for early-morning workouts. Moawad, who specializes in mental conditioning, saw how everything from Dillmans tone of voice, to his helped him get the most out of athletes. Youre going to be motivated through fear, through incentive or through your desire to be great, Moawad said. Jeff knew how to use all three of those very, very well. Dillman always moved around the weight room quickly, wanting to be at the eye of the storm, as he called it. Moawad said the shift from the technicians IMG usually employed to a motivator like Dillman came as a shock to the athletes. Not long after Dillman was hired, they all came around. They loved him, Moawad said. Dillman has brought that attitude to Florida. He has a lot of energy, Bostic said. Hes funny. He helps us have a good time in the weight room. Dillman has also brought a championship pedigree. After winning a BCS Championship the Tigers for two more seasons before becoming the director of strength and conditioning at Appalachian State, his alma mater. Appalachian State was coming off of an FCS national championship, and Dillman played an integral role in winning two more. While he put his own stamp on things, it was more a matter of him maintaining and building upon what was already here, which he did, Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore said. He was a huge part of us winning two Dillman won national championand Appalachian State. Florida is No. 2 in the BCS poll. When Muschamp took to the podium after Floridas win against LSU, seconds. I cant speak further without talking about Jeff Dillman, Muschamp said. It was very evident on the footfootball team. Later that night, Pease sent Dillman and assistant director for strength and conditioning Jesse Ackerman a text message: Thanks. Youre doing a great job. Thanks for showing up in this game. Our guys got stronger as it went along, Pease said. When I look down there and [the LSU players] have got their hands on their hips, and our guys are still rearing to go, thats a product of what theyve done from the summer. In one offseason, Dillman has helped bring about a total transformanational championship race. Last year we werent in that kind of conditioning, center Jonotthan Harrison said. That kind of condition is sorry. But now, this year, its really showing that all our work in the offseason is really paying off. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator. org.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterFour Florida Supreme Court justices left their black robes in Tallahassee to speak at a forum at the UF Levin College of Law on Thursday afternoon. About 120 people attended The Importance of an Independent Judiciary, an event sponsored by the Gerald T. Bennett Inn of Court and the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Law Students Division. The majority of the justices, four out of seven, responded to the invitation to participate in the forum. Justices Jorge Labarga, R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince discussed merit retention decided through voter election as a threat to a fair and balanced judicial system. The people of Florida deserve a judicial branch that is not beholden to the big guys or the little guys, Lewis said during the discussion. UF adjunct law professor Carl B. Schwait began the event, and Dean Jon L. Mills introduced the justices. We take for granted what the Constitution did for an independent judiciary, Mills told the crowd. Afterward, a panel of three law students asked questions to the justices about politicizing merit retention and diminished judicial funding. After the event, president of the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Law Student Division Allie Menegakis said she felt educating the public on merit retention was important. If law students dont know what it is, how do undergraduates know what it is? Menegakis asked. Second-year law student Sabrina Jadunandan, 22, explained that merit retention is a burden on the justices shoulders. Its important to see the judges per spective, Jadunandan said.

years. Robinson said she is concerned about the amount of water the nuclear plant would take from the Florida aquifer, saying the plant would require one million gallons a day. Less than 1 percent of the water to run the plant will come from the aquifer, Grant said. The rest will come from the Gulf of Mexico. Robinson said she was also concerned about the 50-mile emergency evacuation radius, which covers Alachua, Levy and other neighboring counties. Grant said she wasnt sure the scope of the radius but said there is an emergency plan in place. There is also a plan to store nuclear waste on-site, she said. To fund the project, Progress Energy Florida customers, including UF, have already seen increases in their electric bills. Robinson said these customers will not get refunds if the plant isnt built. Customers with a 1,000kilowatt-hour bill are currently paying an additional $2.67 per month, she said. The Atomic Safety and Licensing Board Panel, which is part of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, will host a hearing at 9 a.m. on Oct. 31 at the Levy County Courthouse, where community concerns will be addressed, Grant said We developed this plan so that we would meet all the regulatory requirements, Grant said.

United Way of North Central Florida launched a free texting service, United 2-1-1, a few weeks ago. The service, which helps people with issues related to housing, food, elder care and utility bills, was previously available if residents called or emailed the center. Now, people can text 898-211 or TXT211 for help, said Debbie Mason, organization president and CEO. Were always looking for ways to enhance our reach, she said. I think its going to be well received. Those needing help should text their ZIP code to 2-1-1 to get started. Counselors will respond and do their best to refer people to a place nearby, Mason said. For example, if a person needed a meal, counselors would text him or her directions to the nearest food bank. We, as human beings, all need help at some point in our lives, she said. United Way 2-1-1 is the organizations signature service, Mason said, and has been around for more than 30 years. She said she thinks texting will better serve current users and will help the organization reach out to more people who need the services. As technology evolved, its allowed us to serve people with different modalities, she said. Now, texting is more common, so weve evolved our modality to include that. Police spokesman, said some people are afraid to pick up the phone to get help. When you get to a point when you need to ask for help, its embarrassing, he said. Text can be a little more anonymous. Mason agreed, adding that the texting option might encourage people to seek help earlier. Tobias said the service could cause students are tied to their cellphones, and an electronic option might be more approachable. Bob Woods, city spokesman, said statistics show that young people use texting the most now, but older people are beginning to text more often. Mason said United Way 2-1-1 is important because it serves residents of all races, ethnicities and income levels. The texting option is especially helpful for those who dont have access to a computer, Internet or a home phone, she said. Woods said its a valuable resource for United Way to make sure those looking for help can get it. Its another tool in the toolbox, he said.Texts help residents make ends meet We, as human beings, all need help at some point in our lives.Debbie Masonorganization president and CEO

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The Nobel Peace Prize, perhaps at one time a universally admired achievement, has managed to take yet another step toward becoming a complete farce. Just three years after granting newly elected Barack Obama the prize for little more than the content of his campaign speeches, the politicians that comprise the Norwegian Nobel Committee gave the award to the European Union, a decision that left much of the world scratching its collective head in confusion. According to the Nobel Committee, the EU deserved the honor for having over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. Essentially, the committee deemed it appropriate to reward most of the members of an entire continent for behaving exactly as they should for not attacking one another. Of course, many EU member states have the past six decades. But an undistinguished history of participation in international military operations is not enough to discredit the EU alone; after all, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization not the EU serves as the military coordinator for much of the continent. No, the Nobel Committees decision is shared ideals of the EU too much credit for the continuing peace on the continent, and it completely ignores the present-day quagThe idea that European peace is a direct result of the liberal values shared throughout the continent is a nice one. This type of thinking appeals to our idealism as good Westerners and to our senses of democracy, freedom and fairness. But solely concentrating on the proliferation of liberalism as the cause for peace, as the Nobel Committee does, leaves a much more visceral factor out of the equation the rather large United States military presence in Europe. From the end of World War II to the modern day, the U.S. has maintained significant amounts of personnel and equipment across the European continent. The explicit purpose of such an expensive and large force approximately 90,000 men and women is not to prevent, for example, France and Germany from attacking one another again. Rather, the preservation of such a presence grants the U.S. easier access to the Middle East and offers the military a better position from which to respond to emer gency situations. Regardless of U.S. intention, however, European states are They have to worry less about providing for their own defenses and can concentrate funds and efforts on welfare programs or other potentially stabilizing projects. And, of course, a large and capable American military presence is likely to deter an unfavorable balance of power from materializing in Europe just in case, say, Germany started wondering about exactly muscles. So perhaps the Nobel Committee should have awarded the prize to the U.S. Army as a joint declaration for having over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. And of course, the EU as it exists now is in rather poor shape. Anyone not living under a rock is aware sis that has been ongoing for several years. petent countries, such as Greece and Spain, have been forced by more wealthy mainly Germany, to impose strict austerity measures on irate populaces, which have responded with protests that have at times devolved into violent riots. At this point, it is not unreasonable to state that the only glue holding the EUs to act as a bailout fund; nor is it unreasonable to assume that German tolerance and patience will eventually evaporate. If this happens and chaos results, the abandoned, and the entire ideal of European unity will have been dealt a death blow. The Nobel Committee is obviously well aware of the fragile state of the EU. Perhaps it felt a Nobel Prize would do something for morale on the continent. But there were other, more deserving candidates. And how such an esteemed body could so blatantly ignore the harsh status quo of its chosen winner, in the form of current unrest and possibly impending pandemonium, is inexplicable.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Floridas 2013 Football Schedule ReleasedThe Southeastern Conference released the 2013 football schedule on Thursday. UF will face LSU on the road and Arkansas at home from the alligatorSports.orgCheck out our site during the weekend for coverage of Saturdays showdown against South Carolina, Betsy Smith and the Florida volleyball team are gearing See story, page 16. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Hunter Joyer didnt mind stepping out of the spotlight. In fact, he did it willingly. I really dont care, Joyer said. That doesnt bother me at all. Im not looking for TV time or my name to be talked about a lot. I just want the team to do well. The sophomore fullback had been a running back his entire life before coming to Florida. During his senior season at Tampa Catholic High, Joyer led the team with touchdowns. In 19 games as a Gator, Joyer has carried the ball just 20 times. With reduced carries came an exponentially increased blocking responsibility. Although Joyer braced his new role. I just felt like thats the reason that Im here, Joyer said. Im not here to get touches, get carries. I didnt really know any fundamentals, but it wasnt exnot too easy. Its not as easy as people probably think it is. Pease said that Joyer is doing more than just throwing a block taking the scheme into account and deciding which defender he should pick up. his guys arent making tackles, Pease said. I mean not just for Jeff (Driskel), but hes done it for Mike (Gillislee). Joyers natural blocking ability has cleared the way for Gillislee this season. Floridas starting running back leads all Southeastern Conference backs with 615 rushing yards. Joyer said he enjoys being the lead blocker for After a weekend of debauchery torSports crew comes home country music and Coyote Ugly saloons, but were just as excited to see eryone else is for one reason: Erin Andrews. Oh, wait. That was awkward. No matter who the sideline reporter and photographers will be behind the scenes creating a multimedia piece to be featured on alligatorSports.org (Sorry for the shameless plug). Sounds exciting, right? In the meantime, we let two of our writers debate one of this weekends showdowns. Now, onto the picks West Virginia (-2.5) will make Kansas State wish it was back in Kansas because Geno Smith is 5-1 in games following a loss during his three years as the Mountaineers starting quarterback. This gunslinger is one quarterback you aged 230 passing yards per game on 65 percent passing with 13 touchdowns in those games. Clearly, bounce-back games are just as automatic for Smith as picking wrong is for Lee Corso. ADAM PINCUSKansas State (+2.5) will send West Virginia tumbling down its mountain because  The Mountaineers are down in the dumps.

Leading the way at 34-22 is Rivals Bryan SWIFT ALERT! Holt, who has his satellite radio programmed to notify him whenever Taylor Swifts We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together is playing on any station anywhere. Sorry, Holt, but you actually have to end a real relationship before jamming to breakup songs. One-night stands with grenades dont count. In second at 32-24 is The Associated Press Mark I dress like Im in middle school Long, who continues to rock the same plaid shorts everybody bought in sixth grade. His closet looks like it came straight from a PacSun catalog. Cmon, man. Youd think a Jaguars beat writer would at least move up to Abercrombie & Fitch. In third at 31-25 is The Miami Heralds Matt They want to end for the following reasons: talking, eating potato chips, not stopping the car for a cigarette break, listing to the Paul Finebaum Show, holding a six-pack of Smirnoff Ice and much, much more.

Well, I guess you got your moneys worth! Gillislee. I think we all do, Joyer said of taking pride in Gillislees statistics. All of us, the offensive line as well, because its more of a team thing. But hes still a great back, he deserves all the credit and everything for what he does. Another job that often falls on Joyers shoulders is protecting Driskel when he drops back to pass. On Saturday against South Carolina, that may entail blocking Jadeveon Clowney. The 6-foot-6, 256-pound sophomore defensive end is second in the SEC in both sacks and tackles for loss. Joyer said the task is a challenge hes not shying away from. Hes a phenomenal player, Joyer said of Clowney. Probably one of the best in the nation, overall, so I really look forward to it. Whether he is humbly accepting a switch to a less glamorous position or eagerly taking on a tough blocking assignment, Joyer displays a willingness to do whatever the offense asks of him. His head coach appreciates it. what we want here at Florida, coach Will Muschamp said. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

The last time the Gators won nine straight games was in 2010, when they went on a run that took them through the Southeastern Conference Tournament and into the NCAA Tournament. This years team has similar aspirations. Its kind of hard to compare the teams, Tymrak said.

Senior Betsy Smith said the controversial spike was yet another indication that matches against Southeastern Conference rivals, like Auburn, are more intense than those out of conference. She added that the Gators will have to put their emotions aside and focus on volleyball. There are certain players that are very emotional players, Smith said. We knew that [Bullock] was going to be an emotional player. We dont take it as anything. We expected it. We try to just (say), All right, on to the next point. Florida (15-2, 9-0 SEC) expects to see more of the same intensity when it faces Alabama (14-7, 3-6 SEC) in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Friday SEC newcomer Texas A&M on Sunday at 2 p.m. in College Station, Texas. Coach Mary Wise said because Florida plays almost every SEC rival twice each season, the Gators get to know their opponents. Wise said Floridas emotion comes from playing opponents it faces on a regular basis, and she loves that conference play can bring out that type of passion. In fact, she said she admires the nosed volleyball. The biggest difference is the familiarity, Wise said. Theres only a few teams we dont play twice so they are so familiar with each other. ... (Bullock) is one of our staffs favorite players because of how hard she plays. Weve seen this for four years. She is one of my favorites. I love how she plays. Im going to send her a graduation card. Sophomore Holly Pole said the Gators never know what to expect when they go on the road. But she knows that Florida is excited for another grind-it-out SEC matchup. In the ODome you have all your fans, Pole said. Everyone is cheering for you. On the road, sometimes teams will have tons of fans, sometimes there will be no one in the gym.

JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writer When Will Muschamp thinks of legendary coaches in the Southeastern Conference, he thinks of headand a visor. There are really two coaches that come to the forefront of your mind as far as what theyve done for this league, Muschamp said. Thats Bear Bryant and Steve Spurrier. Spurrier has a statue outside of memorates his playing career at UF, which included winning the Heisman Trophy in 1966. However, what Spurrier accomplished with a clipboard on the sidelines proved far more instrumental in establishing Florida as a premier college football program. In the 83 seasons before Spurrier arrived at UF in 1990, the Gators averaged just 5.3 wins per season and had never won a conference championship, let alone a national title. During his 12-year tenure, Spur rier averaged 10.2 victories per season, won six SEC titles and dechampionship in 1996. He also introduced the Fun n Gun offense to the SEC, which helped quarterback Danny Wuerffel win the 1996 Heisman Trophy. With Wuerffel under center, Florida bethan 500 points in a season for four straight years (1993-96) since the NCAA started keeping statistics in 1937. You look at what he did when he came to our league, Muschamp said. It was more of a 3 yards and a pile of dust league, and he came in and spread the ball out a little bit. Said UF linebacker Jon Bostic: He likes to air it out. He can draw up a lot of differ ent things and give a defense headaches. UF quarterback Jeff Driskel does not know much from Spurriers tenure at Florida except what the record books say. However, hes well aware of the Ol Ball Coachs legacy. Its hard to miss the statue, Driskel said. Its hard to miss a guy that named our stadium. For the past eight years, Spurrier has been working to match his success at Florida in Columbia, S.C. In his eighth season at South Carolina, Spurrier has already put his name in the record books. In 2010, he led the Gamecocks Championship, which he clinched with a 36-14 blowout win against the Gators in The Swamp. Last season, he led South Carolina to a programin Gamecocks history. Twice in his tenure at South Car olina, Spurrier has beaten Florida to prevent the Gators from advancing to the SEC Championship Game. Most recently, it happened in 2010. It was tough, Gators wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. said of watching the Gamecocks celebrate winning the SEC East in Gainesville two years ago. When Spurrier and South Caroum on Saturday at 3:30 p.m., it will between the two squads. Raising the stakes, the Gators and the Gamecocks are currently the top two teams in the SEC East standings. Saturdays game will feature two key contenders in the 2012 national championship race, and Spurrier is responsible for building each program. Spurrier is focused on delivering ball, much like he did for Florida. He has tried to downplay his connection to UF this week, but admitted returning to The Swamp is still an odd feeling. I guess it is a little unusual to be on the other team when you come into the ball park and your name is on the wall up there, Spurrier said.
