KICKOFF INSIDE Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will test Floridas defense with his arm and his legs on Saturday. ONLINE Visit alligatorSports.org this weekend for coverage of Floridas game against Georgia, including a preview podcast.

PAGE 2

JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Florida coach Will Muschamp approached the podium in his typical business-like manner on Oct. 29, 2011. He delivered his initial postquestions. There was talk of missed opportunities. There was talk of numbers. Georgia scored two touchdowns on fourth play of the game. The Bulldogs ran out the clock on the Gators 1-yard line. During the second half, Georgia amassed nearly 21 minutes of possession. The Bulldogs The Gators had minus-19 rushing yards and gave away 106 yards on penalties. UF lost the turnover battle for a fourth straight game. Perhaps most glaring was Floridas new place in history. The loss to the Bulldogs marked 1988. Florida had not endured a four-game skid against Southeastern Conference foes since 1979, its last season with a losing record. The numbers dragged Muschamp down, but he never wavered. Unlike his demeanor on the sidelines, Muschamps preparation is on an even keel. Muschamp knew the process would not yield overnight success. I dont really think about losing a whole lot, Muschamp said after last seasons loss to Georgia. But obviously, its happened, so weve got to regroup and reevaluate where we are. We need to move forward. Its disappointing, and theres no one more disappointed or impatient in it than I am. So, weve got to evaluwell work from there. Four weeks later, Muschamp called his players soft. Another rivalry game defeat, this time a 21-7 loss to Florida State in The Swamp, defeats since 1987. Were not a physically tough team, and were not a mentally tough team, Muschamp said after losing to the Seminoles. Thats the facts hard to say it. Ive been called a lot of things in my life, but soft is not one of them, and we are, and its my fault. Two years removed from an undefeated regwere broken, down and out. The same Florida that sparked the SECs streak of national championships was an afterthought in the NCAAs toughest league. The fall from grace was complete. Muschamp began to rebuild. Muschamp was energetic and eager during his introductory press conference on December 14, 2010. He was clear, concise and direct. Still, his opening statement lasted more than 20 minutes. In his introduction to the UF community, Muschamp spelled out his coaching philosophy was old-fashioned, and he was an SEC guy. He grew up a Florida fan, played for Georgia and coached at LSU and Auburn before accepting the Gators head coaching job. Muschamp knew the culture of the SEC. And after winning three national championships under offensive innovators Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer, UF was changing course. The SEC is the line-of-scrimmage league, Muschamp said in December 2010. Weve got to be able to run the ball, weve got to run the ball to kill the game at the end, run the ball in the red zone, and run the ball to develop toughness on your football team. Muschamp also preached stopping the run, winning the turnover battle and winning with blue-collar overachievers. Gone was Meyers Top 1 percent of 1 percent mentality. Muschamps philosophy underwent a bapRanked opponents outrushed Florida by 117.8 yards per game. The Gators averaged an SEC-low 61 rushing yards per game in those contests. UFs minus-12 turnover margin was among Most glaring was Floridas penchant for wearing down late in games. In SEC play last season, the Gators were outscored 72-22 in the time. Florida didnt overachieve in 2011. At 7-6, the Gators underachieved. If you want to see (the) big picture in the last two years of the University of Florida, were following the 2012 Gator Bowl. Sometimes, I think youve got to put your realistic glasses on where you are as a program right at this point. Its not where were going to be very long. I can assure you of that. Dominique Easley goes to bed angry. Every night before falling asleep, he watches clips from Floridas defeats last season. Losing makes him furious. Its like youre going to watch a video clip of you getting punched in your face over and over again, Easley said. Youre going to get mad every time you watch it. Pain, embarrassment and a sense of lost pride motivated the Gators during the offseason. the Gators. I told the guys all along, Dont ever forget the feeling you have right now, Muschamp said. As a competitor, it ought to motivate you. If youre truly a competitive guy, it ought to motivate you not to be in that situation again. I know I use it. New strength coach Jeff Dillman helped Florida improve its strength and endurance by introducing Olympic-style weightlifting. His constant motivation helped the Gators improve their mental toughness. During summer workouts, Dillman coined the term, Florida never breaks. The team invokes FNB often. The players post #FNB on Twitter. Sharrif Floyd writes it on his athletic tape before games. When times were the worst this offseason, and (the) beginning of the season when no one believed in us, we kept saying it, Omar Hunter said. Florida never breaks. Muschamp has been impressed with his teams response to the soft label. He has praised Dillman for Floridas quick growth. For Florida never breaking. When youre sitting there in the middle of June and the middle of July, you better be creative in how to motivate some of these guys, Muschamp said. Ill be honest with you. I think back to when I was playing. Its hard. Its weights. You better have somebody in there who has a great message to motivate you, and Jeff certainly does. Jelani Jenkins believes he and his teammates have always wanted to succeed. The Gators simply needed adversity to grow. Weve always been a hungry team, Jenkins said. The main difference in the attitude now is weve been in those locker rooms and had those tears and had the pain. We felt all of that and all that builds up, and its a product of where were Florida is winning with Muschamps philosophy. in Baton Rouge, La., UF outmuscled LSU on the line of scrimmage in a 14-6 win on Oct. 6. Mike Gillislee has led a surge in Floridas ground game, which ranks third in the SEC with 212.7 yards per game. The Gators rank 12th naFloridas success in the ground game is largely due to offensive coordinator Brent Pease, who has been creative within his commitment to Muschamps philosophy. Pease has incorporated several personal wrinkles into the Gators run-based attack, but most notably, he offensive linemen this season, especially against the Tigers. Two weeks later, the Gators forced four fumbles and recovered three in a 44-11 win against the Gamecocks. Florida, which forced 14 turnovers all of last Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coined the term violators, which describes players who are liable to fumble because they do not carry the ball correctly. Offensively, the Gators have just four turnovers this season after averaging two per game in 2011. Quarterback Jeff Driskel has thrown only one interception in 2012. Quinn, who has coached the defense with Muschamp since Day 1 in Gainesville, admires Muschamps adherence to his personal philosophy, even after last seasons struggles. One of the important things is when you have a belief in something, you stay the course and trust it, where sometimes, it can be easy to get off track Quinn said. Thats something Will never wavered from in terms of wanting to run the ball, possess it, and take care of it on offense and try and get it on defense. Although we didnt have the results that we wanted to in terms of that way last year, that was still the same message in the offseason hadnt changed. And that was his blueprint for winning and I think it kind of goes to show if you have a belief and stick with it, I think good things will follow. Most remarkably, Florida, the second-ranked team in the BCS standings, is succeeding as a group of overachievers. The Gators were the UF will face UGA, the team that capped the Gators worst stretch in more than 20 years last October. The same team that stopped 1 yard short of the end zone out of pity. The last time Florida played Georgia, Muschamps philosophy seemed like a failed theory forced upon a team that was not equipped to play that way. Now, a club that has assumed Muschamps identity and style will face arguably its toughest test on the road to redemption. Is Floridas 7-0 start surprising? Nah, Muschamp said. faith in his philosophy for the umpteenth time. The Muschamp Way has propelled the Gators back to national prominence. However you get it done, whether the odds are better for you or not, it really doesnt matter to me. I have a positive outlook on everything we do in our organization, from recruiting to playing to practicing and the off-season, everything. I choose to believe that way.

Blackface, a style of makeup used in 19th century theater productions to stereotype and caricaturize African-Americans, is seen as an offensive practice today.

Romney made a stop at Davids Real Pit BBQ on 23rd Avenue on Thursday afternoon to meet with about 20 people while a crowd of about 100 supporters held signs and toddlers outside the restaurant. The campaign stop touted as a quick visit with Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan supporters was one of several destinations for Romney in this swing state. She attended a rally in St. Augustine before booking it to Gainesville to get a takeout barbecue lunch. Romneys visit is among publican appearances in Gainesville this election cycle.

Were seeing unbelievable momentum across the states in all counties, including here in Gainesville. As Romney walked into the restaurant Thursday, the crowd inside erupted in applause.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 MARK PATRICK KELLYAlligator Contributing WriterBert Lucas hops into a pit of water with a natural born killer every chance he gets. For the past 20 years, Lucas, 40, of West Palm Beach, has performed at fairs and festivals around the world, entertaining and educating audiences by handling alligators. Lucas will perform three shows a day at the 2012 Alachua County Fair, which ends Saturday. His presentation, Kachunga and the Alligator Show, is produced for the company Wildlife Entertainment and Education. The show premiered in 1982 as a public awareness program to educate students through wildlife presentations, according to the Kachunga website. Its an educational show, you know, we try to teach people about [alligators], Lucas said. Lucas saw a Kachunga show for in 1992 when he was a junior at the University of South Florida. I just thought it was so cool, and I started talking to the guys that ran the show, and I went to work for them next summer, Lucas said. Lucas left college to pursue his calling. He quickly became enamored of the showmanship and the chance to work with animals. Twenty years later, Lucas said he loves to interact with the audience, time seeing an alligator in real life. You can see the looks on their faces, and their eyes get big. They have so many questions, Lucas said. Aside from the performances, one of Lucas favorite parts of the job is the frequent traveling. Ive been to the Philippines, Ive been to Hawaii twice, Ive been to Puerto Rico, all through Canada and everywhere in the other 49 [states], Lucas said. Lucas job isnt all about being a rock star and rolling around with an alligator; its serious business. A bite from an alligator will cause serious puncture wounds, bruising and infection, explained Lucas, who has been bitten several times. It hurts. Its a lot of pressure; They have extremely powerful jaws, so theres a lot of pressure involved. You dont feel the teeth all you feel is the pressure, Lucas said. Handling alligators up to 10 feet in length still makes Lucas nervous. He has no plans to quit anytime soon, though. As far as me getting in the water and being able to, you know, talk about them [alligators] and do a show I can do that for another 20 years, Lucas said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 THE ROAD WAS CLOSED FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterMike Fisher and Gabriel Pimentel heard a rumbling outside their house. Moments later, a loud thud shook their walls. We thought somebody was going to run through our house with a car, said Fisher, a 22-year-old criminology senior. Thats how low loud it was. Thats how close it sounded. At about 1:40 p.m. Thursday, a massive oak tree in front of Fishers house, located in the 2800 block of Northwest 27th Terrace, tipped over and landed on West University Avenue, damaging two cars, injuring one person and shutting down the road for about three hours. The trees branches took down several power lines, cutting off power for houses around the block, including Fishers. A Gainesville Regional Utilities worker used a cherry picker to repair loose power lines and a damaged transformer. Once power to the cables was shut off, a Gainesville Fire Rescue crew freed a 30-year-old woman trapped in her Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder under the tree. An ambulance rushed her to Shands at UF with minor injuries, Gainesville Police spokesman Ben Tobias said. The tree also fell on a Honda Civic, shattering the back window. The driver, David Kilgore, was not injured. Kilgore, a 24-year-old UF alumnus, said he was driving several feet in front of the womans car before the tree fell. A half-second earlier, it would have been a problem, he said. This is a moment that made me really appreciate life. toward Southwest Second Avenue, GRU crews worked to clear the tree from the road. Crews also used saws to cut the fallen tree while Florida Department of Corrections work release inmates helped clear the road. At 4:45 p.m., police reopened Avenue, according to a GPD news release.

But Sandy will only brush by Jacksonville during the game. The main issue is going to be the winds, said Andrew Shashy, a meteorologist at the Jacksonville National Weather Service. Winds from the Category 2 hurricane will be roughly a gusty 25 mph Saturday, Shashy said. There is a 50 percent chance of rain in the morning and early afternoon, which will diminish by the time the game starts at 3:30 p.m. There is almost no chance of any weather that would stop the game, like thunder or lightning, he said. Temperatures will be in the 70s in the afternoon, but Shashy recommends fans bring a sweater or jacket if they plan to go out Saturday evening. It will be breezy with lows in the 50s. The storm is turning away from shore and going out to sea in the next few days, said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hur ricane Center. Shashy said Sandy is projected to be off the coast of New Jersey by Tuesday. The game was windy last year, which afteros, a 19-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences sophomore, said, adding that much greater with windy weather. Still, she is optimistic about her perfor mance and pumped for the game. Florida-Georgia is incredibly exciting, she said.

Letters to the Editor FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I am absolutely disgusted and disappointed by a picture I saw on my Facebook feed today. In a picture originally posted on Instagram now screen-captured for the world to see two apparently white males are dressed in black tank tops, with sagging pants, do-rags, of a rapper. The problem in the picture is these guys decided to color themselves brown. They couldnt just be white guys in hip-hop attire, huh? They just had to be black. This is ridiculous. Are we really still employing blackface in this country as a means of entertainment? Is it 2012 or 1848? Sure, I realize we, for the most part, dont receive well-rounded high school educations. I know we learn nothing more than surfacelevel trivia about the contributions of AfricanAmerican people in this country. Is it your fault that the only black people you learned about in grade school were MLK and maybe George Washington Carver? No, it isnt. liseconds learning about the contributions of people other than our Founding Fathers. But for students at UF, an institution that prides itself on being a public Ivy, to host what was apparently a BET vs. CMT party something I see as ignorant in and of itself and think its OK for people to color themselves brown is absolutely ignorant. Should there be consequences? Sure, but they should come in the form of social education. We at UF cannot allow our fellow Gators or fellow Americans for that matter to remain completely ignorant to the history of offensive institutions like blackface. This is only one aspect of the social ignorance thats running rampant in this country, There needs to be forums. There need to be seminars and classes to teach us why this is unacceptable. There should be some public outcry. Im not calling for anything extreme. I just want us to educate ourselves. If we do, maybe, just maybe, we can be a more united and prosperous society. Billy Kennedy UF journalism senior I am a second-year student in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. In our ethics class last year, we had a debate on Operation Catnip and feral cats that included a presentation from Dr. Levy, and also from a wildlife veterinarian at the college. In short, a person has to side with cats or with wildlife not both. It is true that feral cats are incompatible with wildlife, and Oper ation Catnip makes the lives of the kitties better but doesnt make the lives of the wildlife better. In the Alligator article on this issue, Dr. Levy is quoted, The results of our study indicated that long-term reduction of free-roaming cat numbers is feasible by [Trap-NeuterRelease], Levy wrote in an article published in 2003. It has been reported that feral cats become less aggressive toward each other and more friendly toward their feeders following neutering, and this may have encouraged adoption of previously feral cats. First off, sure, less aggression may mean more adoptions. Sounds great. But what about all the cats that bide their time at the shelter and are euthanized because there arent enough homes? So, why is making a feral cat Theres a limited amount of space, so its unlikely a large proportion would be adopted, regardless of how friendly they become. While her quote, overall, sounds very humane and great for cats, if cats are less aggressive to each other, then their survival rates increase. Kitten survival rates also increase because neutered tomcats are no longer territorial and no longer kill kittens. But the population is sterilized, right? So, what kittens? TNR is only truly functional at controlling a population when that population is isolated from any immigration into the colony. Studies have been conducted that prove that when immigration occurs, the feral cat population actually increases in the face of TNR programs all due to the other factors at play (such as the decreased aggression to each other). One other point of controversy is the legality of Operation Catnip. Florida law states that it is illegal to release any nonnative species into the wild without a permit. Cats are considered nonnative. It has been known for quite some time that Operation Catnip is techlawyer attempted to sue the program for this. The lawsuit was dropped due to the uproar and support of TNR from cat lovers, and also for political reasons (for one, Bernie Machens wife decided to be a large proponent of the program). coin that argues for the cats welfare. Of course, it seems more barbaric to kill them than to neuter, vaccinate and release. Of course, kitties will be happier to return to their colonies and live out their days. But again, this is an issue that demands a choice for cats or for wildlife not both. UF is a designated wildlife sanctuary, so I understand that their priority is to save and protect the wildlife on campus, not the feral cats. It doesnt make them horrible people just people with different priorities on an issue that doesnt leave much wiggle room for compromise.

The party theme was rock stars and rappers, and it was held at a venue downtown, said Beta Theta Pi president Ethan McMahon. He said the two brothers in the photo were the only ones made up in blackface. As an organization, we pride ourselves on the consid erable diversity of our membership and are disappointed in the poor judgement and actions of two of our members, the 21-year-old political science and economics senior wrote in an emailed statement. While their actions were not intended with any malice or ill will to any members of our community, clearly they were offensive, and we accept full responsibility accordingly. He also said the chapter issues an apology to the UF community and will work with administration and fraternity leadership to ensure this doesnt happen again. McMahon said judicial action will probably be taken. Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer sent an email to students involved in sororities and fraternities Thursday in response to the incident. We work very hard to create a welcoming environment for all students, Kratzer wrote. The actions of these on the University of Florida.

By about 3:30 p.m., Romney made her way back to the campaign bus, detouring to walk up to a growing crowd that had been kept away from the restaurant by A woman shouted Welcome of the United States, as Romney gripped hands and hugged shoulders. Supporters held Romney signs and waved as her bus pulled away from the parking lot. There was talk of whether she tried the sweet tea. I think its awesome that she decided to come through Gainesville, said Breonna Bristow, 19-year-old nursing sophomore at Santa Fe College. I hope I get to see her. For Bristow, the Democratic majority isnt dissuading. And Romneys visit only reinforces that idea. Just because Gainesvilles more liberal, theres also still a lot of Republicans out here, she said.

This is the kind of food a Japanese family would eat in their home, Hoffman said. Bowls and sandwiches cost $7 to $9, depending on which meat customers choose. Yume Ume does not serve sushi rolls, Hoffman said, but instead offers an array of traditionally cooked menu items. Chalkboard menus line the back wall, listing handwritten dishes like baked chicken, miso-cured tofu and lemongrass tempeh.

Students and Gainesville community members can attend the free outdoor concert. Its a sampler, really, of the offerings within the College of Fine Arts, said Andy Howard, spokesman for the college. A student would spend many evenings trying to see all these groups one night apiece. The show will include perfor mances by UFs Symphony Or chestra, Mens Glee Club and Jazz Band, along with the University Gospel Choir and Agbedidi African Drum and Dance Ensemble. The College of Fine Arts and UF Homecoming will be collaborating for the second year to present the event. About 700 people came to last years Swamp Symphony, but organizers said they hope the crowd will be larger on Sunday, director Michael Levey, 19, said. The performance last year was great, the telecommunica tion sophomore said, but there are going to be a lot of new sur prises to look out for. This year, education celebration awards, including the Homecoming Outstanding Faculty Award and the Homecom ing Outstanding Mentor of Undergraduate Research Award, will be presented at the concert. In accordance with this years Homecoming theme, United We Growl, the concert will honor the armed forces with patriotic songs. Performers will also play renditions of traditional UF songs like The Orange and Blue and We Are The Boys. Our goal is to give everyone the chance to celebrate homecoming in their own way, said UF Homecoming general chair Hannah Swerdloff, a 21-year-old public relations senior. Howard said he wanted students to be touched by the arts at UF by creating a new tradition, which he hopes will someday become as common as painting the 34th Street wall. Fine arts on this campus have a rich tradition over 100 years old, he said. Swamp Symphony is our occasion to celebrate that.UFs Homecoming Swamp Symphony to perform this Sunday PETA2 HOSTED THE EXHIBIT. AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing WriterWhile some students lounged on the Plaza Peta2 held a Glass Wall Slaughterhouse Exhibit on Wednesday and Thursday. Students were able to sit in sow gestation crates tent and watch a video narrated by Paul McCartney about the conditions animals have to cope with in the meat industry. Peta2, the youth division of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, decided to bring The Glass Wall exhibit to college campuses because students tend to be openminded, said Lisa Hines, the exhibit coordinator. Peta2 came to UF because of its strong ties with UFs Student Animal Alliance. Most people arent aware of what happens in a slaughterhouse and what animals go through, she said. Hines said most students were receptive and wanted to know how they could help. Alain Delapaz, a 26-year-old business management junior, said hes against animal mals for fur. But he doesnt see the harm in killing animals for food. We must improve animals quality of life while theyre living but still harvest them like weve been doing for centuries, he said. Delapaz said vegetarian and vegan foods taste good, but he couldnt survive off it because he said he needs protein. God gave us these [teeth] to eat through meat, he said.Students get slaughterhouse experience through exhibit JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterFrom college students furnishing apartments to collectors lookexpected to draw a crowd this weekend. rage sale will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the southeast Airport, 3880 NE 39th Ave. About 80 vendors will sell items that range from household items to crafts to art, said Laura Aguiar, the public relations and governmental affairs manager for the airport. We expect a lot of household items for bargains, she said. It would be great for students looking for something to furnish their apartment. For Douglas Meyers, who has about 40 years, Saturdays event is a big opportunity, he said. I started buying at auctions when I was about 9, he said, when I had special permission from the auctioneer. Aguiar said the event is the air ports new way of supporting the March of Dimes. The amount of vendors has allowed the airport to surpass last years charity donations. The event will have 30 more vendors than originally expected.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Scottie Wilbekin will likely have an expanded role at both point guard and shooting guard in 2012-13. See story, page 16. alligatorSports.orgCheck out our site this weekend for coverage of Floridas matchup Gators volleyball, swimming, cross country and golf matches. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer Florida entered Thursday nights matchup with South Carolina in control game, the Gators passed on their oppor tunity to seize control. tackers opted to pass the ball rather than take shots that could have given Florida the lead. Adriana Leon changed that in the 65th minute. The junior forward received a pass a shot past Gamecocks goalkeeper Sabrina DAngelo. With a little help from the foot of a South Carolina defender, the ball found its way into the back of the net for the Speese said. Because we just kept pushing and pushing for a goal, and when more. Leons score proved to be the gamewinner in Floridas (14-4-1, 11-2 SEC) 3-0 victory against South Carolina (6-94, 3-7-3 SEC) on Thursday in Columbia, S.C. With the win, the Gators clinched their second SEC championship in three years. Its an incredible feeling, said Tymrak, who was a key player on the 2010 SEC championship team. Our team is incredible. This is memories. After Leon put Florida on the board, Speese added insurance. In the 74th minute, junior Taylor Travis sent a corner kick toward the goal, where it was headed by a South Carolina defender and bobbled by the keeper. Speese took advantage of the miscue and scored the Gators second goal. I just kind of got lucky with the rebound, Speese said. It came right to me, and I just volleyed it in. Speese was not done scoring. With three minutes left in the game, GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Although Omar Hunters hometown of Buford, Ga., is only about 45 miles west of Athens, Floridas matchup against Georgia doesnt have any special meaning. Georgia was never his childhood favor consider the clash with Georgia his favorite Hunter tracked down tickets for friends and family members to watch No. 3 Florida face No. 12 Georgia on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Jacksonville, but he isnt treating the game any differently. Its going to be fun, but I treat it like any other game, Hunter said. Going out and preparing like I always have, and hopefully we can get the win. That level-headedness is a key reason why Hunter, a redshirt senior, is one of the leaders on Floridas defensive line. matchup with Georgia is no more impor tant than any other, and Hunter has embodied that focus. I havent seen [anything] different from him, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. Omar, to his credit, has done a really good job of preparing week in and week to do. Ive always been impressed [by] the way hes prepared. Defensive end Dominique Easley said playing alongside a veteran like Hunter has been helpful. With appearances in 50 games, Hunter understands football better than any of Floridas other defensive linemen. He also understands how to avoid becoming too pumped up for any one game a lesson that is proving useful this week. It gives him respect on the team, Quinn said. (Hes) someone they all look to because of the fact he has a real even disposition. Hunters teammates can also look up to him for his play in 2012. With 25 tackles, Hunter trails only Sharrif Floyd who has 26 for the lead among Florida defensive linemen. Three of Hunters tackles have been for a loss. This season has been downright scary for the rest of the alligatorSports crew when Adam Pincus is at the wheel. Whether its agitating 18-wheeler drivers on our Tenn., something always seems to happen on Southeastern Confer days away, the gang is getting ready for another road trip this time to Jacksonville for the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. This de facto SEC East championship game will surely spur several intense Will Musfriends, are the scariest things of all. Now, onto the picks! Oklahoma (-10) will toss Notre Dame around like Dominique Easleys Chucky doll because Bob Stoops is the man. The Sooners will control the football with their running game. Theyre tied for seventh nationally with 20 rushing touchdowns this season. Notre Dame hasnt allowed any. But the Irish havent faced a back like Blake The Belldozer Bell, whose eight rushest among quarterbacks. The divine run for the Golden Domers ends in wagon country. Plus, the leprechaun mascot is downright creepy. Halloween costume idea?ADAM PINCUSNotre Dame (+10) will give Bob Stoops the spooks because... Everyone should be Manti Teo for Halloween. A year after Luke Kuechly for Heisman fell short, Teo is here to pick up the mantle for dominant, hard-nosed middle linebackers everywhere. With 69 tackles, four interceptions and enough jackups to make the Belldozer shake in Picks Column SITE: EverBank Field (cap. 84,000) KICKOFF: 3:30 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: CBS / 850 AM SEE PICKS, P AGE 15 David Carr / Alligator S taffDefensive tackle Omar Hunter (right) rips off Marcus Lattimores helmet during Floridas Defensive tackle helping Gators stay groundedSEE HUNTER, P AGE 15SOCCERSEE SOCCER, P AGE 15 Its going to be fun, but I treat it like any other game.Omar HunterUF defensive tackleFlorida clinches SEC regular-season titlePoll ResultsWhen will Florida 52% NEVER 32% SEC TITLE 8% GEORGIA 6% FSU 2% BO WL GAME 193 total votes

Perhaps Hunters biggest contributions do not show up in the box score. The biggest lineman in Floridas regular rotation at 313 pounds, Hunter is the anchor of the nations No. 10 rush defense. Florida allows just 97.3 yards per game. He needed to do a better job of disengaging on blocks and has held the point extremely well for us this year, coach Will Muschamp said. (He) is having an outstanding senior season. Hunter has already topped the 17 tackles he posted in 2009 and the 23 tackles he notched in 2010. He set a career-high with 31 in 13 games last year and is on pace to shatter that mark this season. Hunter said he feels more explosive than he has at any point in his career, an improvement he attributes to new strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman. Muschamp said Hunter needed to be stronger at the point of attack. Hunter has answered the call, leading to the best season of his career. Hes really playing his best football in our two years here, and really since hes been here, Muschamp said. He accepted the challenges in front of him, and he cer tainly has capitalized.

Well, I guess youve got just as good a chance with her as you do with all of the real ones. Rounding out the three-way tie at 32-32 is Jason PROF_ SS_ONAL_SM Lieser, who thought a game of hangman on the locker room whiteboard was a good way to pass the time between interviews. Im sure Muschamp would be happy to see his catchphrase You guys aint got no guts, man being put to good use. And in dead-ass last place with a piss poor record of 30-34 is alligatorSports writer Josh The Eagles suck, too! Jurnovoy, who was recently barred from joining a group of friends bemoaning the plight of their respective NFL teams. Sorry, Josh, but even misery doesnt love company enough to have you around. HUNTER, from page 14UF top seed in SEC Tourneytory. Sophomore outside back Tessa Andujar dribbled up the goal line and delivered a pass to Speese directly in front of the net. Speese beat the keeper for the second time in 14 minutes, extending Floridas lead to 3-0. [Andujar] found me with a per fect ball, and I just kind of redirected it, Speese said. Its one that weve been talking about all season, and its Florida secured the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament with the win. Tournament play begins on Wednesday. The 2012 SEC title is Floridas 12th conference crown, all of which have come under coach Becky Burleigh. I do not take any single one of these for granted, Burleigh said. Last year, when we didnt win it, it was such a disappointment, and so to get back on top again its huge. Every single one of them feels great. Although Burleigh said winning the SEC title was one of Floridas primary goals this season, she added that the team has more on its mind than just a conference championship. As exciting as it was, our team was really calm when we won, Bur leigh said. Of course they were super happy, but we didnt act like we just won the national championship.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer Erving Walker is playing overseas in Italy, but his name is still prominent in Flor idas record books. He graduated after last season as UFs alltime assists leader with 547. He ranks fourth in career scoring with 1,777 points. Records werent the only thing Walker left at UF. When he started his professional career, he also left behind a starting spot at point guard. After two years as a backup, junior Scottie Wilbekin will get an opportunity to start in 2012-13. Right now I feel good about him, coach Billy Donovan said. Scottie has really shown a lot of improvement. Hes gotbecause of the things that he can do. In Wilbekins 74 games as a Gator, he has started twice. Both starts were alongside Walker. Wilbekin averaged only 16.1 minutes per Donovan has made it clear that he wants Wilbekin to be his own player and not mimic Walkers style. Still, Donovan would like to see Wilbekin improve as an offensive threat. I want [Wilbekin] to be aggressive on offense, Donovan said. Erving, because of his size, what enabled him to play at this level was his ability to shoot the ball from deep, and that was always a weapon. I dont think we need or want Scottie doing that, but we do need Scottie to be a threat offensively. Wilbekin attempted only 76 shots last season, as Walker and Brad Beal were Flor idas primary options on offense. But, after working on his shot in practice, Wilbekin has seen improvement. Its coming pretty natural, Wilbekin right now. Wilbekin envisions himself playing mostly point guard, but he expects to share time with senior Kenny Boynton. Wilbekin the two guard positions. Im completely comfortable with [playing shooting guard], Wilbekin said. I did some of that last year. I played some of the three and some of the four last year. I know all of the plays from every position, so its Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator. org. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior Scottie Wilbekin poses during UFs media day on Oct. 10.

3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 AP PhotoJunior quarterback Aaron Murray attempts a pass during Georgias 2924 victory against Kentucky on Saturday in Lexington, Ky. AARON MURRA Y JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Mark Richt didnt hesitate to categorize Aaron Murray as one of the best quarterbacks he has coached. Richt mentored Heisman winners Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke during his time as Florida States offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in the 1990s. At Georgia, he coached No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick Matthew Stafford for three years. In one aspect of the game, he put his current starter above the rest. I just dont think Ive had a guy that prepares like Murray prepares, Richt said. There really hasnt been one, and theres been some really good ones. I dont want to hurt anyones feelings. But this guy, hes really taken it to another level when it comes to prep. That work ethic helped the junior signal caller win the startGeorgia. As a freshman, Murray entered the Southeastern Confer ence spotlight and did not seem out of place. He completed more than 60 percent of his passes for 3,049 yards. He also threw 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. We put a lot on our quar terbacks, and it takes a great commitment to really be good, Richt said. If youre not willing to work, you might as well play another position or go to another school. This season, Murrays completion percentage is up to 65.3 per cent, and he has a touchdown-tointerception ratio of 4-to-1. Murray will look to continue his solid play at quarterback tomorrow when the No. 12 Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) try to upset the No. 3 Gators (7-0, 6-0 SEC) and keep their SEC East title hopes alive. Richt said Murray enjoys the process of preparing for games. He loves the grind of learning how to be an SEC quarterback, learning how to be a potential professional quarterback, Richt said. He eats it up. He works like no ones business. Murrays 168.63 passer rating ranks seventh in the country and second in the SEC. But Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said Murray can also be effective with his legs. He is a hard guy to sack because he clearly knows when he feels pressure, Quinn said. Ive got a lot of respect for him and how he plays at that position in terms of being able to distribute the ball to guys. Murrays statistics against the Gators have been average, but he was good enough during critical moments of the Bulldogs 24-20 win last season. He completed 15 of his 34 passes for 169 yards but threw two fourth-down touchdown passes to bring Georgia One of those touchdowns came with junior cornerback Jaylen Watkins in coverage. Watkins has used memories of the 2011 game as motivation. He added that the Florida defensive backs cannot rely on Murray to make mistakes on Saturday. Hes very quick with his decision making, Watkins said. You can tell he understands coverages. He can pick you apart, to the really matter. He can do everything. This week, we cant say this quarterback cant make this throw, cant make that throw. He can make everything. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.Georgia QB presents stiff test for UF

JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Florida coach Will Muschamp approached the podium in his typical business-like manner on Oct. 29, 2011. He delivered his initial postquestions. There was talk of missed opportunities. There was talk of numbers. Georgia scored two touchdowns on fourth play of the game. The Bulldogs ran out the clock on the Gators 1-yard line. During the second half, Georgia amassed nearly 21 minutes of possession. The Bulldogs The Gators had minus-19 rushing yards and gave away 106 yards on penalties. UF lost the turnover battle for a fourth straight game. Perhaps most glaring was Floridas new place in history. The loss to the Bulldogs marked 1988. Florida had not endured a four-game skid against Southeastern Conference foes since 1979, its last season with a losing record. The numbers dragged Muschamp down, but he never wavered. Unlike his demeanor on the sidelines, Muschamps preparation is on an even keel. Muschamp knew the process would not yield overnight success. I dont really think about losing a whole lot, Muschamp said after last seasons loss to Georgia. But obviously, its happened, so weve got to regroup and reevaluate where we are. We need to move forward. Its disappointing, and theres no one more disappointed or impatient in it than I am. So, weve got to evaluwell work from there. Four weeks later, Muschamp called his players soft. Another rivalry game defeat, this time a 21-7 loss to Florida State in The Swamp, defeats since 1987. Were not a physically tough team, and were not a mentally tough team, Muschamp said after losing to the Seminoles. Thats the facts hard to say it. Ive been called a lot of things in my life, but soft is not one of them, and we are, and its my fault. Two years removed from an undefeated regwere broken, down and out. The same Florida that sparked the SECs streak of national championships was an afterthought in the NCAAs toughest league. The fall from grace was complete. Muschamp began to rebuild. Muschamp was energetic and eager during his introductory press conference on December 14, 2010. He was clear, concise and direct. Still, his opening statement lasted more than 20 minutes. In his introduction to the UF community, Muschamp spelled out his coaching philosophy was old-fashioned, and he was an SEC guy. He grew up a Florida fan, played for Georgia and coached at LSU and Auburn before accepting the Gators head coaching job. Muschamp knew the culture of the SEC. And after winning three national championships under offensive innovators Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer, UF was changing course. The SEC is the line-of-scrimmage league, Muschamp said in December 2010. Weve got to be able to run the ball, weve got to run the ball to kill the game at the end, run the ball in the red zone, and run the ball to develop toughness on your football team. Muschamp also preached stopping the run, winning the turnover battle and winning with blue-collar overachievers. Gone was Meyers Top 1 percent of 1 percent mentality. Muschamps philosophy underwent a bapRanked opponents outrushed Florida by 117.8 yards per game. The Gators averaged an SEC-low 61 rushing yards per game in those contests. UFs minus-12 turnover margin was among Most glaring was Floridas penchant for wearing down late in games. In SEC play last season, the Gators were outscored 72-22 in the time. Florida didnt overachieve in 2011. At 7-6, the Gators underachieved. If you want to see (the) big picture in the last two years of the University of Florida, were following the 2012 Gator Bowl. Sometimes, I think youve got to put your realistic glasses on where you are as a program right at this point. Its not where were going to be very long. I can assure you of that. Dominique Easley goes to bed angry. Every night before falling asleep, he watches clips from Floridas defeats last season. Losing makes him furious. Its like youre going to watch a video clip of you getting punched in your face over and over again, Easley said. Youre going to get mad every time you watch it. Pain, embarrassment and a sense of lost pride motivated the Gators during the offseason. the Gators. I told the guys all along, Dont ever forget the feeling you have right now, Muschamp said. As a competitor, it ought to motivate you. If youre truly a competitive guy, it ought to motivate you not to be in that situation again. I know I use it. New strength coach Jeff Dillman helped Florida improve its strength and endurance by introducing Olympic-style weightlifting. His constant motivation helped the Gators improve their mental toughness. During summer workouts, Dillman coined the term, Florida never breaks. The team invokes FNB often. The players post #FNB on Twitter. Sharrif Floyd writes it on his athletic tape before games. When times were the worst this offseason, and (the) beginning of the season when no one believed in us, we kept saying it, Omar Hunter said. Florida never breaks. Muschamp has been impressed with his teams response to the soft label. He has praised Dillman for Floridas quick growth. For Florida never breaking. When youre sitting there in the middle of June and the middle of July, you better be creative in how to motivate some of these guys, Muschamp said. Ill be honest with you. I think back to when I was playing. Its hard. Its weights. You better have somebody in there who has a great message to motivate you, and Jeff certainly does. Jelani Jenkins believes he and his teammates have always wanted to succeed. The Gators simply needed adversity to grow. Weve always been a hungry team, Jenkins said. The main difference in the attitude now is weve been in those locker rooms and had those tears and had the pain. We felt all of that and all that builds up, and its a product of where were Florida is winning with Muschamps philosophy. in Baton Rouge, La., UF outmuscled LSU on the line of scrimmage in a 14-6 win on Oct. 6. Mike Gillislee has led a surge in Floridas ground game, which ranks third in the SEC with 212.7 yards per game. The Gators rank 12th naFloridas success in the ground game is largely due to offensive coordinator Brent Pease, who has been creative within his commitment to Muschamps philosophy. Pease has incorporated several personal wrinkles into the Gators run-based attack, but most notably, he offensive linemen this season, especially against the Tigers. Two weeks later, the Gators forced four fumbles and recovered three in a 44-11 win against the Gamecocks. Florida, which forced 14 turnovers all of last Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coined the term violators, which describes players who are liable to fumble because they do not carry the ball correctly. Offensively, the Gators have just four turnovers this season after averaging two per game in 2011. Quarterback Jeff Driskel has thrown only one interception in 2012. Quinn, who has coached the defense with Muschamp since Day 1 in Gainesville, admires Muschamps adherence to his personal philosophy, even after last seasons struggles. One of the important things is when you have a belief in something, you stay the course and trust it, where sometimes, it can be easy to get off track Quinn said. Thats something Will never wavered from in terms of wanting to run the ball, possess it, and take care of it on offense and try and get it on defense. Although we didnt have the results that we wanted to in terms of that way last year, that was still the same message in the offseason hadnt changed. And that was his blueprint for winning and I think it kind of goes to show if you have a belief and stick with it, I think good things will follow. Most remarkably, Florida, the second-ranked team in the BCS standings, is succeeding as a group of overachievers. The Gators were the UF will face UGA, the team that capped the Gators worst stretch in more than 20 years last October. The same team that stopped 1 yard short of the end zone out of pity. The last time Florida played Georgia, Muschamps philosophy seemed like a failed theory forced upon a team that was not equipped to play that way. Now, a club that has assumed Muschamps identity and style will face arguably its toughest test on the road to redemption. Is Floridas 7-0 start surprising? Nah, Muschamp said. faith in his philosophy for the umpteenth time. The Muschamp Way has propelled the Gators back to national prominence. However you get it done, whether the odds are better for you or not, it really doesnt matter to me. I have a positive outlook on everything we do in our organization, from recruiting to playing to practicing and the off-season, everything. I choose to believe that way.

Romney made a stop at Davids Real Pit BBQ on 23rd Avenue on Thursday afternoon to meet with about 20 people while a crowd of about 100 supporters held signs and toddlers outside the restaurant. The campaign stop touted as a quick visit with Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan supporters was one of several destinations for Romney in this swing state. She attended a rally in St. Augustine before booking it to Gainesville to get a takeout barbecue lunch. Romneys visit is among publican appearances in Gainesville this election cycle.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 MARK PATRICK KELLYAlligator Contributing WriterBert Lucas hops into a pit of water with a natural born killer every chance he gets. For the past 20 years, Lucas, 40, of West Palm Beach, has performed at fairs and festivals around the world, entertaining and educating audiences by handling alligators. Lucas will perform three shows a day at the 2012 Alachua County Fair, which ends Saturday. His presentation, Kachunga and the Alligator Show, is produced for the company Wildlife Entertainment and Education. The show premiered in 1982 as a public awareness program to educate students through wildlife presentations, according to the Kachunga website. Its an educational show, you know, we try to teach people about [alligators], Lucas said. Lucas saw a Kachunga show for in 1992 when he was a junior at the University of South Florida. I just thought it was so cool, and I started talking to the guys that ran the show, and I went to work for them next summer, Lucas said. Lucas left college to pursue his calling. He quickly became enamored of the showmanship and the chance to work with animals. Twenty years later, Lucas said he loves to interact with the audience, time seeing an alligator in real life. You can see the looks on their faces, and their eyes get big. They have so many questions, Lucas said. Aside from the performances, one of Lucas favorite parts of the job is the frequent traveling. Ive been to the Philippines, Ive been to Hawaii twice, Ive been to Puerto Rico, all through Canada and everywhere in the other 49 [states], Lucas said. Lucas job isnt all about being a rock star and rolling around with an alligator; its serious business. A bite from an alligator will cause serious puncture wounds, bruising and infection, explained Lucas, who has been bitten several times. It hurts. Its a lot of pressure; They have extremely powerful jaws, so theres a lot of pressure involved. You dont feel the teeth all you feel is the pressure, Lucas said. Handling alligators up to 10 feet in length still makes Lucas nervous. He has no plans to quit anytime soon, though. As far as me getting in the water and being able to, you know, talk about them [alligators] and do a show I can do that for another 20 years, Lucas said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 THE ROAD WAS CLOSED FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterMike Fisher and Gabriel Pimentel heard a rumbling outside their house. Moments later, a loud thud shook their walls. We thought somebody was going to run through our house with a car, said Fisher, a 22-year-old criminology senior. Thats how low loud it was. Thats how close it sounded. At about 1:40 p.m. Thursday, a massive oak tree in front of Fishers house, located in the 2800 block of Northwest 27th Terrace, tipped over and landed on West University Avenue, damaging two cars, injuring one person and shutting down the road for about three hours. The trees branches took down several power lines, cutting off power for houses around the block, including Fishers. A Gainesville Regional Utilities worker used a cherry picker to repair loose power lines and a damaged transformer. Once power to the cables was shut off, a Gainesville Fire Rescue crew freed a 30-year-old woman trapped in her Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder under the tree. An ambulance rushed her to Shands at UF with minor injuries, Gainesville Police spokesman Ben Tobias said. The tree also fell on a Honda Civic, shattering the back window. The driver, David Kilgore, was not injured. Kilgore, a 24-year-old UF alumnus, said he was driving several feet in front of the womans car before the tree fell. A half-second earlier, it would have been a problem, he said. This is a moment that made me really appreciate life. toward Southwest Second Avenue, GRU crews worked to clear the tree from the road. Crews also used saws to cut the fallen tree while Florida Department of Corrections work release inmates helped clear the road. At 4:45 p.m., police reopened Avenue, according to a GPD news release.

But Sandy will only brush by Jacksonville during the game. The main issue is going to be the winds, said Andrew Shashy, a meteorologist at the Jacksonville National Weather Service. Winds from the Category 2 hurricane will be roughly a gusty 25 mph Saturday, Shashy said. There is a 50 percent chance of rain in the morning and early afternoon, which will diminish by the time the game starts at 3:30 p.m. There is almost no chance of any weather that would stop the game, like thunder or lightning, he said. Temperatures will be in the 70s in the afternoon, but Shashy recommends fans bring a sweater or jacket if they plan to go out Saturday evening. It will be breezy with lows in the 50s. The storm is turning away from shore and going out to sea in the next few days, said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hur ricane Center. Shashy said Sandy is projected to be off the coast of New Jersey by Tuesday. The game was windy last year, which afteros, a 19-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences sophomore, said, adding that much greater with windy weather. Still, she is optimistic about her perfor mance and pumped for the game. Florida-Georgia is incredibly exciting, she said.

Letters to the Editor FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 I am absolutely disgusted and disappointed by a picture I saw on my Facebook feed today. In a picture originally posted on Instagram now screen-captured for the world to see two apparently white males are dressed in black tank tops, with sagging pants, do-rags, of a rapper. The problem in the picture is these guys decided to color themselves brown. They couldnt just be white guys in hip-hop attire, huh? They just had to be black. This is ridiculous. Are we really still employing blackface in this country as a means of entertainment? Is it 2012 or 1848? Sure, I realize we, for the most part, dont receive well-rounded high school educations. I know we learn nothing more than surfacelevel trivia about the contributions of AfricanAmerican people in this country. Is it your fault that the only black people you learned about in grade school were MLK and maybe George Washington Carver? No, it isnt. liseconds learning about the contributions of people other than our Founding Fathers. But for students at UF, an institution that prides itself on being a public Ivy, to host what was apparently a BET vs. CMT party something I see as ignorant in and of itself and think its OK for people to color themselves brown is absolutely ignorant. Should there be consequences? Sure, but they should come in the form of social education. We at UF cannot allow our fellow Gators or fellow Americans for that matter to remain completely ignorant to the history of offensive institutions like blackface. This is only one aspect of the social ignorance thats running rampant in this country, There needs to be forums. There need to be seminars and classes to teach us why this is unacceptable. There should be some public outcry. Im not calling for anything extreme. I just want us to educate ourselves. If we do, maybe, just maybe, we can be a more united and prosperous society. Billy Kennedy UF journalism senior I am a second-year student in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. In our ethics class last year, we had a debate on Operation Catnip and feral cats that included a presentation from Dr. Levy, and also from a wildlife veterinarian at the college. In short, a person has to side with cats or with wildlife not both. It is true that feral cats are incompatible with wildlife, and Oper ation Catnip makes the lives of the kitties better but doesnt make the lives of the wildlife better. In the Alligator article on this issue, Dr. Levy is quoted, The results of our study indicated that long-term reduction of free-roaming cat numbers is feasible by [Trap-NeuterRelease], Levy wrote in an article published in 2003. It has been reported that feral cats become less aggressive toward each other and more friendly toward their feeders following neutering, and this may have encouraged adoption of previously feral cats. First off, sure, less aggression may mean more adoptions. Sounds great. But what about all the cats that bide their time at the shelter and are euthanized because there arent enough homes? So, why is making a feral cat Theres a limited amount of space, so its unlikely a large proportion would be adopted, regardless of how friendly they become. While her quote, overall, sounds very humane and great for cats, if cats are less aggressive to each other, then their survival rates increase. Kitten survival rates also increase because neutered tomcats are no longer territorial and no longer kill kittens. But the population is sterilized, right? So, what kittens? TNR is only truly functional at controlling a population when that population is isolated from any immigration into the colony. Studies have been conducted that prove that when immigration occurs, the feral cat population actually increases in the face of TNR programs all due to the other factors at play (such as the decreased aggression to each other). One other point of controversy is the legality of Operation Catnip. Florida law states that it is illegal to release any nonnative species into the wild without a permit. Cats are considered nonnative. It has been known for quite some time that Operation Catnip is techlawyer attempted to sue the program for this. The lawsuit was dropped due to the uproar and support of TNR from cat lovers, and also for political reasons (for one, Bernie Machens wife decided to be a large proponent of the program). coin that argues for the cats welfare. Of course, it seems more barbaric to kill them than to neuter, vaccinate and release. Of course, kitties will be happier to return to their colonies and live out their days. But again, this is an issue that demands a choice for cats or for wildlife not both. UF is a designated wildlife sanctuary, so I understand that their priority is to save and protect the wildlife on campus, not the feral cats. It doesnt make them horrible people just people with different priorities on an issue that doesnt leave much wiggle room for compromise.

representation of AfricanAmerican culture. Why would you have a party like that? she said. Its not OK. The party theme was rock stars and rappers, and it was held at a venue downtown, said Beta Theta Pi president Ethan McMahon. He said the two brothers in the photo were the only ones made up in blackface. As an organization, we pride ourselves on the considerable diversity of our membership and are disappointed in the poor judgement and actions of two of our members, the 21-year-old political science and economics senior wrote in an emailed statement. While their actions were not intended with any malice or ill will to any members of our community, clearly they were offensive, and we accept full responsibility accordingly. He also said the chapter issues an apology to the UF community and will work with administration and fraternity leadership to ensure this doesnt happen again. McMahon said judicial action will probably be taken. Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer sent an email to students involved in sororities and fraternities Thursday in response to the incident. We work very hard to create a welcoming environment for all students, Kratzer wrote. The actions of these on the University of Florida. Thursday night, the Institute of Black Culture held an emergency cypher for people to discuss their feelings.

Shaking hands and asking names, Romney walked to each of the restaurants red booths. Supporters smiled giddily.

Its nice that she can acknowledge the hard work that goes on in this town. By about 3:30 p.m., Romney made her way back to the campaign bus, detouring to walk up to a growing crowd that had been kept away from the restaurant by A woman shouted Welcome of the United States, as Romney gripped hands and hugged shoulders. Supporters held Romney signs and waved as her bus pulled away from the parking lot. There was talk of whether she tried the sweet tea. I think its awesome that she decided to come through Gainesville, said Breonna Bristow, 19-year-old nursing sophomore at Santa Fe College. I hope I get to see her. For Bristow, the Democratic majority isnt dissuading. And Romneys visit only reinforces that idea. Just because Gainesvilles more liberal, theres also still a lot of Republicans out here, she said.

10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 KATINA PROKOSAlligator Contributing WriterGrab a picnic blanket and get ready to groove UF Homecomings Swamp Symphony is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday on Flavet Field. Students and Gainesville community members can attend the free outdoor concert. Its a sampler, really, of the offerings within the College of Fine Arts, said Andy Howard, spokesman for the college. A student would spend many evenings trying to see all these groups one night apiece. The show will include performances by UFs Symphony Orchestra, Mens Glee Club and Jazz Band, along with the University Gospel Choir and Agbedidi African Drum and Dance Ensemble. The College of Fine Arts and UF Homecoming will be collaborating for the second year to present the event. About 700 people came to last years Swamp Symphony, but organizers said they hope the crowd will be larger on Sunday, director Michael Levey, 19, said. The performance last year was great, the telecommunication sophomore said, but there are going to be a lot of new surprises to look out for. This year, education celebration awards, including the Homecoming Outstanding Faculty Award and the Homecoming Outstanding Mentor of Undergraduate Research Award, will be presented at the concert. In accordance with this years Homecoming theme, United We Growl, the concert will honor the armed forces with patriotic songs. Performers will also play renditions of traditional UF songs like The Orange and Blue and We Are The Boys. Our goal is to give everyone the chance to celebrate homecoming in their own way, said UF Homecoming general chair Hannah Swerdloff, a 21-year-old public relations senior. Howard said he wanted students to be touched by the arts at UF by creating a new tradition, which he hopes will someday become as common as painting the 34th Street wall. Fine arts on this campus have a rich tradition over 100 years old, he said. Swamp Symphony is our occasion to celebrate that.UFs Homecoming Swamp Symphony to perform this Sunday PETA2 HOSTED THE EXHIBIT. AUDREYANNA LOGUERREAlligator Contributing WriterWhile some students lounged on the Plaza Peta2 held a Glass Wall Slaughterhouse Exhibit on Wednesday and Thursday. Students were able to sit in sow gestation crates tent and watch a video narrated by Paul McCartney about the conditions animals have to cope with in the meat industry. Peta2, the youth division of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, decided to bring The Glass Wall exhibit to college campuses because students tend to be openminded, said Lisa Hines, the exhibit coordinator. Peta2 came to UF because of its strong ties with UFs Student Animal Alliance. Most people arent aware of what happens in a slaughterhouse and what animals go through, she said. Hines said most students were receptive and wanted to know how they could help. Alain Delapaz, a 26-year-old business management junior, said hes against animal mals for fur. But he doesnt see the harm in killing animals for food. We must improve animals quality of life while theyre living but still harvest them like weve been doing for centuries, he said. Delapaz said vegetarian and vegan foods taste good, but he couldnt survive off it because he said he needs protein. God gave us these [teeth] to eat through meat, he said.Students get slaughterhouse experience through exhibit JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterFrom college students furnishing apartments to collectors lookexpected to draw a crowd this weekend. rage sale will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the southeast Airport, 3880 NE 39th Ave. About 80 vendors will sell items that range from household items to crafts to art, said Laura Aguiar, the public relations and governmental affairs manager for the airport. We expect a lot of household items for bargains, she said. It would be great for students looking for something to furnish their apartment. For Douglas Meyers, who has about 40 years, Saturdays event is a big opportunity, he said. I started buying at auctions when I was about 9, he said, when I had special permission from the auctioneer. Aguiar said the event is the air ports new way of supporting the March of Dimes. The amount of vendors has allowed the airport to surpass last years charity donations. The event will have 30 more vendors than originally expected. I think were getting even more excited because we have had such an incredible response, she said.Citywide garage sale kicks offHoward We expect a lot of household items for bar gains.Laura Aguiarpublic relations and governmental affairs manager for the airportMarisa Ross / AlligatorGood PickingsMagnolia Farms vendor Mike McElwee, 45, sells a squash to Jeremy Outinen, a 21-year-old anthropology senior, on Thursday at the Inter-Residence Hall Associations Farmers Market.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Scottie Wilbekin will likely have an expanded role at both point guard and shooting guard in 2012-13. See story, page 16. alligatorSports.orgCheck out our site this weekend for coverage of Floridas matchup Gators volleyball, swimming, cross country and golf matches. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Writer Florida entered Thursday nights matchup with South Carolina in control game, the Gators passed on their oppor tunity to seize control. tackers opted to pass the ball rather than take shots that could have given Florida the lead. Adriana Leon changed that in the 65th minute. The junior forward received a pass a shot past Gamecocks goalkeeper Sabrina DAngelo. With a little help from the foot of a South Carolina defender, the ball found its way into the back of the net for the Speese said. Because we just kept pushing and pushing for a goal, and when more. Leons score proved to be the gamewinner in Floridas (14-4-1, 11-2 SEC) 3-0 victory against South Carolina (6-94, 3-7-3 SEC) on Thursday in Columbia, S.C. With the win, the Gators clinched their second SEC championship in three years. Its an incredible feeling, said Tymrak, who was a key player on the 2010 SEC championship team. Our team is incredible. This is memories. After Leon put Florida on the board, Speese added insurance. In the 74th minute, junior Taylor Travis sent a corner kick toward the goal, where it was headed by a South Carolina defender and bobbled by the keeper. Speese took advantage of the miscue and scored the Gators second goal. I just kind of got lucky with the rebound, Speese said. It came right to me, and I just volleyed it in. Speese was not done scoring. With three minutes left in the game, GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer Although Omar Hunters hometown of Buford, Ga., is only about 45 miles west of Athens, Floridas matchup against Georgia doesnt have any special meaning. Georgia was never his childhood favor consider the clash with Georgia his favorite Hunter tracked down tickets for friends and family members to watch No. 3 Florida face No. 12 Georgia on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Jacksonville, but he isnt treating the game any differently. Its going to be fun, but I treat it like any other game, Hunter said. Going out and preparing like I always have, and hopefully we can get the win. That level-headedness is a key reason why Hunter, a redshirt senior, is one of the leaders on Floridas defensive line. matchup with Georgia is no more impor tant than any other, and Hunter has embodied that focus. I havent seen [anything] different from him, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. Omar, to his credit, has done a really good job of preparing week in and week to do. Ive always been impressed [by] the way hes prepared. Defensive end Dominique Easley said playing alongside a veteran like Hunter has been helpful. With appearances in 50 games, Hunter understands football better than any of Floridas other defensive linemen. He also understands how to avoid becoming too pumped up for any one game a lesson that is proving useful this week. It gives him respect on the team, Quinn said. (Hes) someone they all look to because of the fact he has a real even disposition. Hunters teammates can also look up to him for his play in 2012. With 25 tackles, Hunter trails only Sharrif Floyd who has 26 for the lead among Florida defensive linemen. Three of Hunters tackles have been for a loss. This season has been downright scary for the rest of the alligatorSports crew when Adam Pincus is at the wheel. Whether its agitating 18-wheeler drivers on our Tenn., something always seems to happen on Southeastern Confer days away, the gang is getting ready for another road trip this time to Jacksonville for the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. This de facto SEC East championship game will surely spur several intense Will Musfriends, are the scariest things of all. Now, onto the picks! Oklahoma (-10) will toss Notre Dame around like Dominique Easleys Chucky doll because Bob Stoops is the man. The Sooners will control the football with their running game. Theyre tied for seventh nationally with 20 rushing touchdowns this season. Notre Dame hasnt allowed any. But the Irish havent faced a back like Blake The Belldozer Bell, whose eight rushest among quarterbacks. The divine run for the Golden Domers ends in wagon country. Plus, the leprechaun mascot is downright creepy. Halloween costume idea?ADAM PINCUSNotre Dame (+10) will give Bob Stoops the spooks because... Everyone should be Manti Teo for Halloween. A year after Luke Kuechly for Heisman fell short, Teo is here to pick up the mantle for dominant, hard-nosed middle linebackers everywhere.

Perhaps Hunters biggest contributions do not show up in the box score. The biggest lineman in Floridas regular rotation at 313 pounds, Hunter is the anchor of the nations No. 10 rush defense. Florida allows just 97.3 yards per game. He needed to do a better job of disengaging on blocks and has held the point extremely well for us this year, coach Will Muschamp said. (He) is having an outstanding senior season. Hunter has already topped the 17 tackles he posted in 2009 and the 23 tackles he notched in 2010. He set a career-high with 31 in 13 games last year and is on pace to shatter that mark this season. Hunter said he feels more explosive than he has at any point in his career, an improvement he attributes to new strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman. Muschamp said Hunter needed to be stronger at the point of attack. Hunter has answered the call, leading to the best season of his career. Hes really playing his best football in our two years here, and really since hes been here, Muschamp said. He accepted the challenges in front of him, and he cer tainly has capitalized.

If Holt doesnt adapt, hell go from pursuing contestants from The Biggest Loser to just earning the moniker himself. In second at 38-26 is the Miami Heralds Matt Shes not my girlfriend Watts, who has had the same visitor every Tuesday night for months but swears its nothing serious. Just admit it, Watts: Youre in love. The girls at midtown are already tired of hearing stories about your girl in Duval. Ranking third with a 37-27 record is the Associated Press Mark Hey Dad, wanna have a catch? Long, who throw a football with offensive coordinator Brent Pease at his weekly media availability. And just like Ray Kinsellas dad in Field of Dreams, Mark threw like a girl. Really, man? Cant muster a spiral from 10 feet away?

Well, I guess youve got just as good a chance with her as you do with all of the real ones. Rounding out the three-way tie at 32-32 is Jason PROF_ SS_ONAL_SM Lieser, who thought a game of hangman on the locker room whiteboard was a good way to pass the time between interviews. Im sure Muschamp would be happy to see his catchphrase You guys aint got no guts, man being put to good use.

Jurnovoy, who was recently barred from joining a group of friends bemoaning the plight of their respective NFL teams. Sorry, Josh, but even misery doesnt love company enough to have you around. HUNTER, from page 14UF top seed in SEC Tourneytory. Sophomore outside back Tessa Andujar dribbled up the goal line and delivered a pass to Speese directly in front of the net. Speese beat the keeper for the second time in 14 minutes, extending Floridas lead to 3-0. [Andujar] found me with a per fect ball, and I just kind of redirected it, Speese said. Its one that weve been talking about all season, and its Florida secured the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament with the win. Tournament play begins on Wednesday. The 2012 SEC title is Floridas 12th conference crown, all of which have come under coach Becky Burleigh. I do not take any single one of these for granted, Burleigh said. Last year, when we didnt win it, it was such a disappointment, and so to get back on top again its huge. Every single one of them feels great. Although Burleigh said winning the SEC title was one of Floridas primary goals this season, she added that the team has more on its mind than just a conference championship. As exciting as it was, our team was really calm when we won, Bur leigh said. Of course they were super happy, but we didnt act like we just won the national championship.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer Erving Walker is playing overseas in Italy, but his name is still prominent in Floridas record books. He graduated after last season as UFs alltime assists leader with 547. He ranks fourth in career scoring with 1,777 points. Records werent the only thing Walker left at UF. When he started his professional career, he also left behind a starting spot at point guard. After two years as a backup, junior Scottie Wilbekin will get an opportunity to start in 2012-13. Right now I feel good about him, coach Billy Donovan said. Scottie has really shown a lot of improvement. Hes gotbecause of the things that he can do. In Wilbekins 74 games as a Gator, he has started twice. Both starts were alongside Walker. Wilbekin averaged only 16.1 minutes per Donovan has made it clear that he wants Wilbekin to be his own player and not mimic Walkers style. Still, Donovan would like to see Wilbekin improve as an offensive threat. I want [Wilbekin] to be aggressive on offense, Donovan said. Erving, because of his size, what enabled him to play at this level was his ability to shoot the ball from deep, and that was always a weapon. I dont think we need or want Scottie doing that, but we do need Scottie to be a threat offensively. Wilbekin attempted only 76 shots last season, as Walker and Brad Beal were Floridas primary options on offense. But, after working on his shot in practice, Wilbekin has seen improvement. Its coming pretty natural, Wilbekin right now. Wilbekin envisions himself playing mostly point guard, but he expects to share time with senior Kenny Boynton. Wilbekin the two guard positions. Im completely comfortable with [playing shooting guard], Wilbekin said. I did some of that last year. I played some of the three and some of the four last year. I know all of the plays from every position, so its Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator. org. David Carr / Alligator StaffJunior Scottie Wilbekin poses during UFs media day on Oct. 10.

3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2012 AP PhotoJunior quarterback Aaron Murray attempts a pass during Georgias 2924 victory against Kentucky on Saturday in Lexington, Ky. AaARON MURRaA Y JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff Writer Mark Richt didnt hesitate to categorize Aaron Murray as one of the best quarterbacks he has coached. Richt mentored Heisman winners Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke during his time as Florida States offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in the 1990s. At Georgia, he coached No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick Matthew Stafford for three years. In one aspect of the game, he put his current starter above the rest. I just dont think Ive had a guy that prepares like Murray prepares, Richt said. There really hasnt been one, and theres been some really good ones. I dont want to hurt anyones feelings. But this guy, hes really taken it to another level when it comes to prep. That work ethic helped the junior signal caller win the startGeorgia. As a freshman, Murray entered the Southeastern Confer ence spotlight and did not seem out of place. He completed more than 60 percent of his passes for 3,049 yards. He also threw 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. We put a lot on our quar terbacks, and it takes a great commitment to really be good, Richt said. If youre not willing to work, you might as well play another position or go to another school. This season, Murrays completion percentage is up to 65.3 per cent, and he has a touchdown-tointerception ratio of 4-to-1. Murray will look to continue his solid play at quarterback tomorrow when the No. 12 Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) try to upset the No. 3 Gators (7-0, 6-0 SEC) and keep their SEC East title hopes alive. Richt said Murray enjoys the process of preparing for games. He loves the grind of learning how to be an SEC quarterback, learning how to be a potential professional quarterback, Richt said. He eats it up. He works like no ones business. Murrays 168.63 passer rating ranks seventh in the country and second in the SEC. But Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said Murray can also be effective with his legs. He is a hard guy to sack because he clearly knows when he feels pressure, Quinn said. Ive got a lot of respect for him and how he plays at that position in terms of being able to distribute the ball to guys. Murrays statistics against the Gators have been average, but he was good enough during critical moments of the Bulldogs 24-20 win last season. He completed 15 of his 34 passes for 169 yards but threw two fourth-down touchdown passes to bring Georgia One of those touchdowns came with junior cornerback Jaylen Watkins in coverage. Watkins has used memories of the 2011 game as motivation. He added that the Florida defensive backs cannot rely on Murray to make mistakes on Saturday. Hes very quick with his decision making, Watkins said. You can tell he understands coverages. He can pick you apart, to the really matter. He can do everything. This week, we cant say this quarterback cant make this throw, cant make that throw. He can make everything. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.Georgia QB presents stiff test for UF
