The 40 women danced to Bruce Springsteens Born in the U.S.A., wearing red, white and blue dresses, and the men sported Gator Growl shirts and blazers. It was a great experience, Cope said. I think the best part was just joking around with all the guys backstage and trying to perfect our dance. The judges panel included Carol Muschamp, UF spokesman Steve Orlando and Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Norb Dunkel. The contestants and their sponsors were introduced during the Gator-gameday casual-wear phase. The women donned orange and blue dresses and were accompanied by men wearing Gator gear from Pennington & Bailes. Each contestants campus involvement and life goals were described during the formal wear segment. Rhythmic tap group STOMP performed before the special were announced.

Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, people gathered at Lynn Universitys dential Debate. About 700 students, sponsors and invited guests gathered from 5 p.m. on to watch the live debate on three blow-up screens and two televisions. Throughout the debate, attendees remained consistent with their cheering for both candidates. The Romney fans were consistently louder, and a few even screamed liar during Obamas closing statements. But everyone came together to celebrate whenever Boca Raton or Lynn University was mentioned. Back in Gainesville, politically active students were pleased with their candidates performances. We had so many high moments, said Gators for Obama co-chair and 20-year-old political science junior Rachel McGovern. It was very exciting to see President Obama basically fact-check Gov. Romney on the spot. UF College Republicans chairwoman Katy Melchiorre, a 21-year-old political science and telecommunication senior, said the debates dynamic seemed different than those of the other two. Romney laid out real plans and achievable goals for our country. Obama spoke in a lot of political rhetoric and just attacked Romney, she said. I thought that he acted more presidential than the president himself.

A study released this month by the Institute for College Access and Success found that the average debt for students who graduated in 2011 was about $26,000, putting Florida near the bottom of the list. The state with the highest graduating debt was New Hampshire, with about $32,000. Hawaii and Utah had the lowest, with about $17,000. Florida had an average student debt of $23,000. Two-thirds of students nationally graduate with student-loan debt, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, in an email. At UF, two-thirds of students graduate without debt. Fifty-one percent of Florida students who graduated in 2011 had debt from student loans. Orlando said UF graduates have an average debt of about $17,000. Students who choose to take out loans do so because they dont get enough money to cover their expenses from Federal Pell Grants and other scholarships. Family, youth and community sciences junior Valerie Valcourt, 20, said she took out a loan once she started school because her scholarships didnt cover food and housing.

LOCAL CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterThe difference between life and death for Brittany Taltos was a soft patch of dirt. Taltos, a 23-year-old UF alumna featured on Jersey Shore, was sunbathing in her front yard Sunday afternoon when her friend reversed his pickup truck into the yard and partially ran over her head. Taltos said she was asleep in front of her house, located on the 300 block of Northwest 14th Street, before the truck backed into her. I woke up with half a tire in my face, she said. The tire trapped Taltos by her hair, pinning her to the ground, while the pressure on her head caused her ears to bleed. I thought I was going to die, she said. When Taltos screamed for help, the driver moved his truck forward and helped her with the bleeding. Taltos roommate, Diego Cabrera, 21, called 911. An ambulance rushed Taltos, who was still conscious, to Shands at UF for treatment, according to a Gainesville Fire Rescue news release. At the hospital, doctors used an X-ray to scan her head and found no signs of brain or skull damage. They told me You basically dodged a bullet, she said. Doctors treated Taltos for minor injuries, which included bruises on her face, a cut on one side of her head and about 10 stitches on her left ear, she said. Taltos checked out from the hospital later that day. was a noticeable depression in the lawn, which may have been caused by the tire pushing Taltos head into the ground. It was very fortunate she was on softer ground where this occurred, said GFR Lt. Tracey Higdon. The injuries may have been much worse, if not fatal. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.UF alumnas head almost run overTuition increased this year$20,000 in debt. Once you get past the 20s, it gets really bad, she said. Orlando said the university encourages students to graduate in a timely manner to avoid extra debt. Our four-year graduation rate is 65 percent, and our sixyear graduation rate is 83 per cent, he said. The more quickly you graduate, the less time you have to build up debt. Scholarships such as Federal Pell Grants are not providing students money for Summer terms. Only loans are available. UF students have also seen a tuition increase this year. Orlando said there has been an increase in the amount of student loan debt as tuition rises. But he said UF students still graduate with less debt than the national average. He said more than 96 percent of UF freshmen qualify for Bright Futures. UFs tuition, $6,143 a year, is much lower than the national average for public universities of more than $8,200, Orlando said. UF sociology junior Luisa Jorge, 24, said she has not had to take out a loan yet because scholarships have covered all her expenses so far. Jorge works part time now but said because of the tuition raise, she expects to take out a loan for $2,500 next semester. More core classes mean more expenses and less time for her job, she said. Political science sophomore Marine Robbins, 19, said she took out a loan, too. I chose to go to UF because better for me here, she said. Comparatively speaking, Flor ida is still a cheap state.

Because of the trick aspect to late October, both Mitt Romney and Donald Trump have some kind of surprises up their sleeves. Well, one of the surprises is probably about Romney. Last week, a new website was launched: OctSurprise.com. It stated: One of your presidential candidates isnt being cent months of the presidential campaign. Politicker interviewed one of the developers of the site, Jeff Hopwood said he actually knows very little about what the site is for; he just helped build it. Additionally, it may not even be directly related to a political campaign. cause of the way they contacted us, Hopwood said, according to Politicker, and he added that he and the other developers put the site together in like a half an hour. Great. Turns out the site was just an excuse to Rickroll thousands of people. What is this, 2007? Way to get our hopes up there for a second. Though, to be tees website, RomneyTaxPlan.com, when it comes to political Internet hoaxes. Trumps announcement, whatever it is, will most likely come on Wednesday. He promises that it is very, very big and that it concerns President Obama directly. He also said it will be bigger than anybody would know, and that Fox News anchors will cover it in a very big fashion, according to the Christian Science Monitor about his appearance on Fox & Friends on Monday morning. evant when he is no longer needed. So forgive us if were not tempting to get inside Obamas head? Because it probably wont work. ment on the day of the last Presidential Debate. Put yourself in Obamas shoes: Would you even pay a pinch of attention to ing you? No chance. where is just a weird side effect of his celebrity. Hes not a because you have a lot of money, Trump, doesnt mean you can just barge in where youre not wanted. His birther conspiracy might have something to do with the announcement, but that will probably do more harm to him than good. Besides, the Obama merchandise website now sells tracted, and neither should we. Hopefully this wont be another way to blare Rick Astley at us.Social media should not be slanderedT Fergus Bell is now responsible for making sure the on an international level. Social media is everywhere, and its not leaving any time soon. In certain circumstances, Ill check a social networking thing. I suppose people most enjoy the personalization inside each tweet, status update, photo upload or blog post. leagues of news stories and events with the click of a share button. From television programs to live events, I can log on pening and how people feel about various topics. The social media world going crazy with comments during each of the recent political debates is just one of many examples. However, some disagree and think that social media is diminishing the value of personal communication between people. Many complain that we are always plugged in, but is that necessarily a bad thing? The sole purpose of social media is to offer more ways to connect with people. countries by these nontraditional means. Sometimes such generated content to social networks. Social media is also convenient. peak hours, while social media does not. Some news organizations even designate employees to be all hours of the day with breaking news. In my opinion, having constant access to news seems to keep people more informed by much easier means. The number of social media networks is continually growing. vide various services, but each ter, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram are just a few of the channels that currently see more popular use. Even in the corporate world, a business isnt fully catering to its LinkedIn is a social networking site for professionals. of their resumes, recommendations from references, links to portfolios and more. Its crazy to be able to say that you got a job or internship essentially through the use of online social networking.

People can also ruin many potential opportunities by Several have frowned upon social media use with trends such as cyberbullying reaching the public eye. An optimistic quote says, If anything can go well, it will. If thats true, then its also fair for pessimists to say, If anything can go badly, it will. However, I dont believe social networks were intended to provide means for inappropriate behavior or deviant use. They should have a better reputation. As long as people use social media in a responsible manner, it shouldnt be to blame for some of the issues that will naturally come along with it.

BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterMatty Loves classes require hands-on learning, but for him, this doesnt just mean inside the classroom. In fact, it is not unusual for Love to bring his work home with him literally. The 19-year-old animal sciences sophomore is in the process of preserving a raw cowhide in his living room. With a huge tarp covering the ground, Love began preserving his proudly purchased hide with a knife and some salt. It didnt smell, so his roommates didnt mind. Love got hooked on the beef industry last semester after takHe ended up changing his major from engineering. This Fall, Love is taking classes like Careers in the Livestock Industry. He works with pigs, sheep and cows from the moment they walk in the classroom until they are slabs of meat being prepared for wholesale and retail buyers. dent Meat class began their work with cows. After the class watched instructional videos, read lab manuals and reviewed standard operating procedures, they suited up in their slaughter-day attire: old jeans, Tshirts and boots, waterproof aprons, two layers of gloves, a hair net and a hard hat. Cows were brought in and stunned, making them numb to its rear leg, and its carotid artery was severed to drain blood. The groups of students removed their cows head, hide and organs and then cut it down the middle into two halves. After the spinal cord was extracted, they weighed, washed and sprayed the cow with an organic sanitizing spray. Since I heard about us doing the beef slaughter, I was really looking forward to the possibility of getting to tan and preserve the beefhide of After his lab, Love asked Byron Davis, the manager of the meatprocessing center, about purchaswrapped his cowhide in a couple of bags and put it in his truck. He also Love had tried to preserve the sheepskin from his sheep slaughter lab as a test run a few weeks before, but raccoons and cats found the skin outside and soiled it with urine after only a few days. This time, Love and a friend worked inside. They cut away the extra fat tissue and leftover meat. The two then smoothed salt over the surface, moving on their hands and knees to make sure it would preserve evenly. Davis said selling hides to students isnt a regular procedure, but because he is a student in the class, I made an exception. Usually the hides and meat are sold to predetermined buyers. For us to have the animals available to use in the class, we actually have to buy the animals, Davis said. They are universityraised cows, [and] in order to offset the price of the animals, we turn around and sell the meat. As for Loves living-room preservation experiment, the hide is almost ready. Hell ship it out on Friday to Sebring Custom Tanning to have it professionally tanned. months later, Love said. Then, he might have a more common reason for having a hide in his living room he may use it as a rug.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Will Yeguete bulked up to See story, page 16. TweetableAlright Gator D I give you props today... That chicken sandwich was BUSSIN!! Bussin= used when UF center Jonotthan Harrison, @BigHarr72 on Twitter David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior linebacker Jon Bostic (1) runs down South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw during JON BOSTIC AND JELANI JENKINS ARE THRIVING IN THEIR SECOND JOSH JURNOVOY Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins only needed to get comfortable. Prior to 2011, Floridas veteran linebackers had never played in the same system for more than one season. were actually able to go into another year with the same defensive coordinator, Bostic said. Every year weve been year weve actually been able to stay in the same defense. on campus in 2009, Charlie Strong was the defensive coordinator. He left to take the head coaching job at Louisville the following season. Strong was replaced by Teryl Austin, who left after one season when Urban Meyer stepped down. Will Muschamp was hired to replace Meyer, and he brought Dan Quinn aboard as the new defensive coordinator. Under country in total defense in 2011. Bostic said remaining in the same scheme has allowed the linebackers to better address the few issues they had last season. (Were) able to improve and take things from last year, Bostic said. Muschamp said he has seen Bostic Bostic is playing as well as any linebacker in the country, Muschamp said. Hes playing really well, and he disengages on blocks. All the things we really presented to him last season of getting short-area contact where hes got to get off blocks and shed. The linebackers have not only improved individually, but as a unit. Jenkins missed two games earlier in the season due to a fractured thumb and said the unit is more cohesive when the entire group is healthy. Me and Bostic being out there, and even Mike Taylor and Antonio (Morrison), I think we all do a good job of communicating, Jenkins said. When were able to communicate and know what each other are doing every play, it makes it a lot easier. Because sometimes were moving fast and sometimes we forget. Bostic and Muschamp cited improved JOE MORGAN When Florida was ranked second in the initial BCS standings, coach Will Muschamp had one message for his team: ignore the polls. I sat with them [on Oct. 15] and said Lets have a conversation about the BCS and the AP and the UPI and the USA Today and all the polls, Muschamp said after Saturdays game. Is any of that information going to help us win against South Carolina? They all agreed that it wasnt going to help us. After defeating the Gamecocks 44-11 on Saturday, the Gators maintained their No. 2 BCS ranking. With a victory against Georgia, Florida will clinch the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and move one step closer to a national championship. However, Muschamp again downplayed the big picture on Monday. When there is obvious possible distractions for your football team, you can stick your head in the sand and pretend everythings OK, or you can address it with them, and thats what I choose to do, Muschamp said. So, I address things and say, All right, if we need to talk about it, lets talk about it. And well all agree that we dont need to. Muschamp does not expect to THE ADAM BOMBMuschamps energy reviving UF SEE LINEBACKERS, PAGE 14 SEE NOTES, PAGE 14 At Auburn, he said Boom, mother f#@%*! on national television after his defense forced a punt in the third quarter. At Texas, he began bleeding from his ear after the Longhorns secondary made an early mistake in a 42-point blowout of Florida Atlantic. At Florida, hes been crowd yelling during halftime interviews. Will Muschamp isnt one to mess with. The Gainesville native arrived at Florida two years ago expecting to turn around a program suffering a Tebow hangover and in need of new energy. After a season in which couldnt overcome a lack of physicality and depth, the Gators are one win away from clinching a Southeastern Conference title game appearance. Teams ranging from cellar dweller Kentucky to perennial power LSU have felt Floridas wrath. This team isnt just good. Theyre downright scary to play against, and the unpredictable ways of coach Boom are the reason why. Before Muschamp, Florida had Urban Meyer. Although he won two national titles at UF, there was something awry about Meyers last season. Meyer always seemed disinterested, often standing on the sidelines with his arms crossed. He left Florida due to personal reasons after an 8-5 season in 2010. The ultimate micromanager worked himself out of Gainesville. Meyers tenure is a touchy subject in the Gators locker room. Players dont like talking about him, and there was never a true answer about the reasons behind his departure. [Muschamp] treats us as adults, Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said on Aug. 6, 2011 regarding the difference between the two coaches. Whether or not thats true is an issue for another day, but what cant be argued is the energy that came from players like Brandon Siler, Tim Tebow and Brandon Spikes. With the emotional leaders of the two national championship teams gone, the Gators season.SEE ADAM, PAGE 14Muschamp Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2012 David Carr / Alligator Staff Florida not likely to discuss rankingsaddress the BCS rankings with his team again, but said he is willing to do so if the seniors feel it is necessary. Becoming preoccupied with rankings is an unlikely problem for the players, especially considering their hesitation to address the implications of Floridas de facto SEC East championship game against Georgia on Saturday. Its another SEC opponent for us, Jon Bostic said. Thats how weve got to look at it. Weve got to prepare the same way weve been preparing for pretty much every SEC opponent weve played this year. We cant change our preparation. If you lose, you dont go anywhere, Frankie Hammond Jr. said. Theres conversations about this and that, where we can go, ranking and stuff like that.

In the locker room after defeating LSU on Oct. 6, Muschamp interrupted his own postgame speech by jumping on his players, who held him up in celebration. Muschamp tackled linebacker Jelani Jenkins on against South Carolina. The play was eventually called back due to an offside penalty.

The junior forward said he has dropped about 1 to 2 percent of his body fat since last season. Yeguete said he bulked up to prepare for minutes at center. Junior center Patric Young saw the difference in Yeguetes conditioning while guarding him in practice. Its a big improvement from last year, Young said. He doesnt get pushed around anymore at all. Hes made his presence very known, especially in the post offensively and defensively. Its really hard to push that guy anywhere anymore. Yeguete attributes his improved physique to the non-traditional workouts of strength and conditioning coordinator Preston Greene. Throughout the offseason, Greene had the Gators pushtires and running with 150-pound punching bags. At the end of the summer, youre like, Wow, I really gained like 15 to 20 pounds, Yeguete said. We just went through so much grinding every week. Preston had us going really hard every single day. Yeguete thinks his chiseled frame will help his post game. He averaged 4.4 points per game in 26 contests last season. Although his offensive reper toire is usually limited to dunks and layups, Yeguete shot 58.1 per second-best clip on the team after Young (.618). Yeguete was one of Floridas best defenders last season, averaging 1.2 steals per game and a team-high 11.5 rebounds per 40 minutes. He also drew nine charges, which was third best on the squad. Although Yeguete is mostly practicing at power forward and center, coach Billy Donovan is experimenting with Yeguete playing all three frontcourt positions. Im willing to do anything for the team, Yeguete said. I per sonally think I can guard a small forward. If we want to try it out, Id be willing to do that. Harris has surgery: Damontre Harris underwent successful surgery on Monday to repair a labrum tear in his shoulder. The 6-foot-10 center will be out of full-contact practice for four to six months, Donovan said. Harris, a South Carolina transfer, suffered the dislocated shoulder and labrum tear when a teammate fell on him in practice more than a week ago. He begins his rehab today and will wear a sling for six weeks. Donovan hopes to have Harris back for non-contact drills in December. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior Will Yeguete poses during UFs media day on Oct. 10. Yeguete added muscle during the offseason to prepare for time at center. Stronger junior ready to play center PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writer Kayla Lewis has had trouble staying on the court during Gators. As a true freshman, she missed 19 games due to multiple leg injuries. Last season, she appeared in just three games before suffering a stress fracture in her foot against Florida State on Nov. 17. She received a medical redshirt. Lewis battled another injury during the summer, eventually undergoing surgery to repair a hernia. On the court, Lewis has that helped her become Miss Georgia Basketball in 2010. The problem has been staying healthy. Frustrating is one word that you could use, coach Amanda Butler said. Lewis offered a more pointed view: Injuries always suck. Her most recent ailment has been the most unusual. In late August, Lewis began experiencing discomfort in her abdomen. One day, her belly button appeared to pop out. Doctors diagnosed her with a hernia. Surgery was one possibility, but the oft-injured Lewis was hesitant to miss time during the preseason, so she considered playing through the injury. After talking it over with family and the coaching staff, she decided to undergo surgery early in September. I was kind of bummed because it took me out for four weeks in the preseason, she said. But there was no upside to it. It could only have gotten worse. With the season less than three weeks away, Lewis has no limitations. She received a platelet-rich plasma injection following the surgery to help expedite her recovery. Lewis is attempting to regain the form that made her freshman to start a season-opener for Florida since Sha Brooks in 2005. Kayla makes such a differ ence, Butler said. Her length and athleticism is really something that is impactful when Freshman Sydney Moss received an up-close view of Lewis athleticism while playing pick-up basketball during the summer. I was guarding her, and I boxed her out and jumped to go get the ball, Moss said. She jumped right over me and grabbed it. Having her is really going to help this team.

UF College Republicans chairwoman Katy Melchiorre, a 21-year-old political science and telecommunication senior, said the debates dynamic seemed different than those of the other two. Romney laid out real plans and achievable goals for our country. Obama spoke in a lot of political rhetoric and just attacked Romney, she said.

A study released this month by the Institute for College Access and Success found that the average debt for students who graduated in 2011 was about $26,000, putting Florida near the bottom of the list. The state with the highest graduating debt was New Hampshire, with about $32,000. Hawaii and Utah had the lowest, with about $17,000. Florida had an average student debt of $23,000. Two-thirds of students nationally graduate with student-loan debt, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman, in an email. At UF, two-thirds of students graduate without debt. Fifty-one percent of Florida students who graduated in 2011 had debt from student loans. Orlando said UF graduates have an average debt of about $17,000. Students who choose to take out loans do so because they dont get enough money to cover their expenses from Federal Pell Grants and other scholarships.

LOCAL CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterThe difference between life and death for Brittany Taltos was a soft patch of dirt. Taltos, a 23-year-old UF alumna featured on Jersey Shore, was sunbathing in her front yard Sunday afternoon when her friend reversed his pickup truck into the yard and partially ran over her head. Taltos said she was asleep in front of her house, located on the 300 block of Northwest 14th Street, before the truck backed into her. I woke up with half a tire in my face, she said. The tire trapped Taltos by her hair, pinning her to the ground, while the pressure on her head caused her ears to bleed. I thought I was going to die, she said. When Taltos screamed for help, the driver moved his truck forward and helped her with the bleeding. Taltos roommate, Diego Cabrera, 21, called 911. An ambulance rushed Taltos, who was still conscious, to Shands at UF for treatment, according to a Gainesville Fire Rescue news release. At the hospital, doctors used an X-ray to scan her head and found no signs of brain or skull damage. They told me You basically dodged a bullet, she said. Doctors treated Taltos for minor injuries, which included bruises on her face, a cut on one side of her head and about 10 stitches on her left ear, she said. Taltos checked out from the hospital later that day. was a noticeable depression in the lawn, which may have been caused by the tire pushing Taltos head into the ground. It was very fortunate she was on softer ground where this occurred, said GFR Lt. Tracey Higdon. The injuries may have been much worse, if not fatal.

Orlando said the university encourages students to graduate in a timely manner to avoid extra debt. Our four-year graduation rate is 65 percent, and our sixyear graduation rate is 83 per cent, he said. The more quickly you graduate, the less time you have to build up debt. Scholarships such as Federal Pell Grants are not providing students money for Summer terms. Only loans are available. UF students have also seen a tuition increase this year. Orlando said there has been an increase in the amount of student loan debt as tuition rises. But he said UF students still graduate with less debt than the national average. He said more than 96 percent of UF freshmen qualify for Bright Futures. UFs tuition, $6,143 a year, is much lower than the national average for public universities of more than $8,200, Orlando said. UF sociology junior Luisa Jorge, 24, said she has not had to take out a loan yet because scholarships have covered all her expenses so far. Jorge works part time now but said because of the tuition raise, she expects to take out a loan for $2,500 next semester. More core classes mean more expenses and less time for her job, she said. Political science sophomore Marine Robbins, 19, said she took out a loan, too. I chose to go to UF because better for me here, she said. Comparatively speaking, Flor ida is still a cheap state.

Because of the trick aspect to late October, both Mitt Romney and Donald Trump have some kind of surprises up their sleeves. Well, one of the surprises is probably about Romney. Last week, a new website was launched: OctSurprise.com. It stated: One of your presidential candidates isnt being cent months of the presidential campaign. Politicker interviewed one of the developers of the site, Jeff Hopwood said he actually knows very little about what the site is for; he just helped build it. Additionally, it may not even be directly related to a political campaign. cause of the way they contacted us, Hopwood said, according to Politicker, and he added that he and the other developers put the site together in like a half an hour.

The social media world going crazy with comments during each of the recent political debates is just one of many examples.

With a huge tarp covering the ground, Love began preserving his proudly purchased hide with a knife and some salt. It didnt smell, so his roommates didnt mind. Love got hooked on the beef industry last semester after takHe ended up changing his major from engineering. This Fall, Love is taking classes like Careers in the Livestock Industry. He works with pigs, sheep and cows from the moment they walk in the classroom until they are slabs of meat being prepared for wholesale and retail buyers. dent Meat class began their work with cows. After the class watched instructional videos, read lab manuals and reviewed standard operating procedures, they suited up in their slaughter-day attire: old jeans, Tshirts and boots, waterproof aprons, two layers of gloves, a hair net and a hard hat. Cows were brought in and stunned, making them numb to its rear leg, and its carotid artery was severed to drain blood. The groups of students removed their cows head, hide and organs and then cut it down the middle into two halves. After the spinal cord was extracted, they weighed, washed and sprayed the cow with an organic sanitizing spray. Since I heard about us doing the beef slaughter, I was really looking forward to the possibility of getting to tan and preserve the beefhide of After his lab, Love asked Byron Davis, the manager of the meatprocessing center, about purchaswrapped his cowhide in a couple of bags and put it in his truck. He also Love had tried to preserve the sheepskin from his sheep slaughter lab as a test run a few weeks before, but raccoons and cats found the skin outside and soiled it with urine after only a few days. This time, Love and a friend worked inside. They cut away the extra fat tissue and leftover meat. The two then smoothed salt over the surface, moving on their hands and knees to make sure it would preserve evenly. Davis said selling hides to students isnt a regular procedure, but because he is a student in the class, I made an exception. Usually the hides and meat are sold to predetermined buyers. For us to have the animals available to use in the class, we actually have to buy the animals, Davis said. They are universityraised cows, [and] in order to offset the price of the animals, we turn around and sell the meat. As for Loves living-room preservation experiment, the hide is almost ready. Hell ship it out on Friday to Sebring Custom Tanning to have it professionally tanned. months later, Love said. Then, he might have a more common reason for having a hide in his living room he may use it as a rug.

Bussin= used when UF center Jonotthan Harrison, @BigHarr72 on Twitter David Carr / Alligator StaffSenior linebacker Jon Bostic (1) runs down South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw during JON BOSTIC AND JELANI JENKINS ARE THRIVING IN THEIR SECOND JOSH JURNOVOY Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins only needed to get comfortable. Prior to 2011, Floridas veteran linebackers had never played in the same system for more than one season. were actually able to go into another year with the same defensive coordinator, Bostic said. Every year weve been year weve actually been able to stay in the same defense. on campus in 2009, Charlie Strong was the defensive coordinator. He left to take the head coaching job at Louisville the following season. Strong was replaced by Teryl Austin, who left after one season when Urban Meyer stepped down. Will Muschamp was hired to replace Meyer, and he brought Dan Quinn aboard as the new defensive coordinator. Under country in total defense in 2011. Bostic said remaining in the same scheme has allowed the linebackers to better address the few issues they had last season. (Were) able to improve and take things from last year, Bostic said. Muschamp said he has seen Bostic Bostic is playing as well as any linebacker in the country, Muschamp said. Hes playing really well, and he disengages on blocks. All the things we really presented to him last season of getting short-area contact where hes got to get off blocks and shed. The linebackers have not only improved individually, but as a unit. Jenkins missed two games earlier in the season due to a fractured thumb and said the unit is more cohesive when the entire group is healthy. Me and Bostic being out there, and even Mike Taylor and Antonio (Morrison), I think we all do a good job of communicating, Jenkins said. When were able to communicate and know what each other are doing every play, it makes it a lot easier. Because sometimes were moving fast and sometimes we forget. Bostic and Muschamp cited improved JOE MORGAN When Florida was ranked second in the initial BCS standings, coach Will Muschamp had one message for his team: ignore the polls. I sat with them [on Oct. 15] and said Lets have a conversation about the BCS and the AP and the UPI and the USA Today and all the polls, Muschamp said after Saturdays game. Is any of that information going to help us win against South Carolina? They all agreed that it wasnt going to help us. After defeating the Gamecocks 44-11 on Saturday, the Gators maintained their No. 2 BCS ranking. With a victory against Georgia, Florida will clinch the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and move one step closer to a national championship. However, Muschamp again downplayed the big picture on Monday. When there is obvious possible distractions for your football team, you can stick your head in the sand and pretend everythings OK, or you can address it with them, and thats what I choose to do, Muschamp said. So, I address things and say, All right, if we need to talk about it, lets talk about it. And well all agree that we dont need to. Muschamp does not expect to THE ADAM BOMBMuschamps energy reviving UF SEE LINEBACKERS, PAGE 14 SEE NOTES, PAGE 14 At Auburn, he said Boom, mother f#@%*! on national television after his defense forced a punt in the third quarter. At Texas, he began bleeding from his ear after the Longhorns secondary made an early mistake in a 42-point blowout of Florida Atlantic. At Florida, hes been crowd yelling during halftime interviews. Will Muschamp isnt one to mess with. The Gainesville native arrived at Florida two years ago expecting to turn around a program suffering a Tebow hangover and in need of new energy. After a season in which couldnt overcome a lack of physicality and depth, the Gators are one win away from clinching a Southeastern Conference title game appearance. Teams ranging from cellar dweller Kentucky to perennial power LSU have felt Floridas wrath. This team isnt just good. Theyre downright scary to play against, and the unpredictable ways of coach Boom are the reason why. Before Muschamp, Florida had Urban Meyer. Although he won two national titles at UF, there was something awry about Meyers last season. Meyer always seemed disinterested, often standing on the sidelines with his arms crossed. He left Florida due to personal reasons after an 8-5 season in 2010. The ultimate micromanager worked himself out of Gainesville. Meyers tenure is a touchy subject in the Gators locker room. Players dont like talking about him, and there was never a true answer about the reasons behind his departure. [Muschamp] treats us as adults, Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said on Aug. 6, 2011 regarding the difference between the two coaches. Whether or not thats true is an issue for another day, but what cant be argued is the energy that came from players like Brandon Siler, Tim Tebow and Brandon Spikes. With the emotional leaders of the two national championship teams gone, the Gators season.SEE ADAM, PAGE 14Muschamp Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2012 David Carr / Alligator Staff Florida not likely to discuss rankingsaddress the BCS rankings with his team again, but said he is willing to do so if the seniors feel it is necessary. Becoming preoccupied with rankings is an unlikely problem for the players, especially considering their hesitation to address the implications of Floridas de facto SEC East championship game against Georgia on Saturday. Its another SEC opponent for us, Jon Bostic said. Thats how weve got to look at it. Weve got to prepare the same way weve been preparing for pretty much every SEC opponent weve played this year. We cant change our preparation. If you lose, you dont go anywhere, Frankie Hammond Jr. said. Theres conversations about this and that, where we can go, ranking and stuff like that. But (if) you lose to Georgia ... all of it falls apart. Christy earns SEC honor: Punter Kyle Christy was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts against South Carolina. Christy set a single-game school record by averaging 54.3 yards per punt. He recorded a season-best 62-yard the Gamecocks. Its been outstanding for our football team this year, Muschamp said. some punts up there. Injury update: Damien Jacobs did not practice on Monday, but Muschamp expects the defensive tackle to return to practice on Tuesday.

Ball and backup Darrin Kitchens have combined for 17 tackles, including one and a half for a loss. True freshman spot in Jenkins absence. Bostic said he sees his lessexperienced teammates getting better as the season progresses. Mike, and Antonio coming in as a freshman, both of those guys bring something different to the table and (are) only going to get better, Bostic said.

After suffering growing pains in Muschamps healthier and have taken on the personality of their coach. Florida is playing the smash-mouth, angry brand of football that brought them an unexpected BCS championship in 2006. In 2008, UF won on supreme talent. Driskel said of Muschamp on Saturday. Hes going to be there during practice, and hes going to be there during games. Hes not going to change. In the locker room after defeating LSU on Oct. 6, Muschamp interrupted his own postgame speech by jumping on his players, who held him up in celebration. Muschamp tackled linebacker Jelani Jenkins on against South Carolina. The play was eventually called back due to an offside penalty. During a local radio interview at halftime on Saturday, Muschamp couldnt control his emotions regarding Floridas 21-6 lead against South Carolina We just have to continue to capitalize on what were doing and OVERCOME THE ADVERSITY ON THE FIELD! Yes, the capital letters are necessary. Muschamp almost took off interviewer Brady Ackermans head. Who wouldnt want to play for a guy who cares that much about his football team? Hes a players coach, linebacker Jon Bostic said before last season. He can relate to the players and get players going. The coach who used to attend Gator games as a kid has brought a swagger back into a football program that desperately needed it. So what if its one viral outburst at a time?

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2012 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer While the Gators were practicing on the court before the NCAA Tournament, Will Yeguete was busy in the weight room. games last year with a fractured left foot, the 6-foot-7 Yeguete added 16 pounds during the offseason to put his weight at 240. The junior forward said he has dropped about 1 to 2 percent of his body fat since last season. Yeguete said he bulked up to prepare for minutes at center. Junior center Patric Young saw the difference in Yeguetes conditioning while guarding him in practice. Its a big improvement from last year, Young said. He doesnt get pushed around anymore at all. Hes made his presence very known, especially in the post offensively and defensively. Its really hard to push that guy anywhere anymore. Yeguete attributes his improved physique to the non-traditional workouts of strength and conditioning coordinator Preston Greene. Throughout the offseason, Greene had the Gators pushtires and running with 150-pound punching bags. At the end of the summer, youre like, Wow, I really gained like 15 to 20 pounds, Yeguete said. We just went through so much grinding every week. Preston had us going really hard every single day. Yeguete thinks his chiseled frame will help his post game. He averaged 4.4 points per game in 26 contests last season. Although his offensive reper toire is usually limited to dunks and layups, Yeguete shot 58.1 per second-best clip on the team after Young (.618). Yeguete was one of Floridas best defenders last season, averaging 1.2 steals per game and a team-high 11.5 rebounds per 40 minutes. He also drew nine charges, which was third best on the squad. Although Yeguete is mostly practicing at power forward and center, coach Billy Donovan is experimenting with Yeguete playing all three frontcourt positions. Im willing to do anything for the team, Yeguete said. I per sonally think I can guard a small forward. If we want to try it out, Id be willing to do that. Harris has surgery: Damontre Harris underwent successful surgery on Monday to repair a labrum tear in his shoulder. The 6-foot-10 center will be out of full-contact practice for four to six months, Donovan said. Harris, a South Carolina transfer, suffered the dislocated shoulder and labrum tear when a teammate fell on him in practice more than a week ago. He begins his rehab today and will wear a sling for six weeks. Donovan hopes to have Harris back for non-contact drills in December. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior Will Yeguete poses during UFs media day on Oct. 10. Yeguete added muscle during the offseason to prepare for time at center. Stronger junior ready to play center PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writer Kayla Lewis has had trouble staying on the court during Gators. As a true freshman, she missed 19 games due to multiple leg injuries. Last season, she appeared in just three games before suffering a stress fracture in her foot against Florida State on Nov. 17. She received a medical redshirt. Lewis battled another injury during the summer, eventually undergoing surgery to repair a hernia. On the court, Lewis has that helped her become Miss Georgia Basketball in 2010. The problem has been staying healthy. Frustrating is one word that you could use, coach Amanda Butler said. Lewis offered a more pointed view: Injuries always suck. Her most recent ailment has been the most unusual. In late August, Lewis began experiencing discomfort in her abdomen. One day, her belly button appeared to pop out. Doctors diagnosed her with a hernia. Surgery was one possibility, but the oft-injured Lewis was hesitant to miss time during the preseason, so she considered playing through the injury. After talking it over with family and the coaching staff, she decided to undergo surgery early in September. I was kind of bummed because it took me out for four weeks in the preseason, she said. But there was no upside to it. It could only have gotten worse. With the season less than three weeks away, Lewis has no limitations. She received a platelet-rich plasma injection following the surgery to help expedite her recovery. Lewis is attempting to regain the form that made her freshman to start a season-opener for Florida since Sha Brooks in 2005. Kayla makes such a differ ence, Butler said. Her length and athleticism is really something that is impactful when Freshman Sydney Moss received an up-close view of Lewis athleticism while playing pick-up basketball during the summer. I was guarding her, and I boxed her out and jumped to go get the ball, Moss said. She jumped right over me and grabbed it. Having her is really going to help this team.
