ALEXANDRA KRAMERAlligator Contributing WriterUF students have a reason to say they go to the best school in Florida. UFs world rank is No. 122 out of the top 400 universities, according to Times Higher Education. The Florida Institute of Technology and the University of South Florida, the only other ranked institutions in Florida, are more than 100 spots away. UF is ranked higher on the list than prestigious schools such as Dartmouth College, No. 124, and Georgetown University, No. 174. UF, which tied with University of California, Santa Cruz, has an overall score of 54.5 percent. The 2012-2013 world rankings use 13 categories to determine a universitys score. Megan Nelson, a UF alumna, said it was easy for her to get a job after she graduated. after graduation as a talent coordinator for an international fashion company. It was so surreal, she said. I feel like I can go anywhere with my degree. The rankings by Thomson Reuters is the only global univer sity performance system to judge world-class universities across all of their core missions, according to Times Higher Education. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the university strives to be a great institution and to provide the best education value possible. UF places well in many other rankings, Orlando said. The reasons include top-notch faculty, reasonable tuition rates, a strong research enterprise and good job placement for our graduates. We compete well against our peer institutions and others. On a scale of 100, UF received a 52 in teaching, a 31.2 in international outlook, a 62.9 in research and a 56 in citations. Overall, the U.S. accounts for 76 of the top 200 schools, and seven of the top 10 universities are U.S. schools. According to a CNN article that analyzed the world rankings, American universities are becoming much less American and more global in their makeups. International students account for 9 percent of UFs population, more than any university in Florida, according to the UF website. However, there is always room to improve, Orlando said. Its important for students to know that the university will continue working to give them the best return on their tuition investment, Orlando said. Fifth-year civil engineering student Andrew Cone, 21, said his professors teach students main methods and equations they created and had published worldwide. He said his degree has such an impact that there are Gators around the world willing to help out fellow UF alumni. I feel like anywhere I go, all I have to do is show my Gator 1 Card, and theyll let me in, Cone said.

The stage was packed in four semi truckser of show Megan Harmon. At the Gate 9 security checkpoint, security supervisor Taylor Hennings ate lunch while bundled in a beanie, blankets and boots. About half of the stadiums east and north sides have been unavailable to students since the construction began, she said. Hennings, a 22-year-old anthropology senior, said about 350 OConnell Center employees and 40 professionals worked in shifts around the clock since 6 a.m. Sunday. Hennings worked about 40 hours at the stadium this week. It was colder at 2 a.m. when we got out here, she said. It took her and three other employees armed with forklifts three hours to unload the stage parts into the stadium. The stage was delivered from Mountain Productions, a Pennsylvania-based staging company and is paid for on a year-to-year basis, Harmon said. Its four semis worth of gear, Chenery said. Although the week of Gator Growl preparation was hectic, Chenery said it was nothing compared to the breakdown after the show ends Friday night. Workers will have about six hours days game. The Super Bowl, Grammys, Emmys, inauguration ceremony, he listed. They brag about what we do here. The load-out is matched nowhere. Contact Michael Scott Davidson at mdavidson@ alligator.org.

Now, Cineas, a 22-year-old UF sociology alumna, teaches ninth grade algebra at her alma mater. Of the 2,500 corps members this year, 24 are UF graduates. UF ranks No. 6 among the top 10 feeder schools for City Years corps, following No. 1 University of California Riverside and No. 8 Florida International University, the only other Florida school on the list. City Years vice president of communications, Shaun Adamec, said about 75 percent of corps members are college graduates. Selected candidates possess qualities that lend to success in service in high-need and high-poverty schools, where students are usually dealing with far more than just struggling with grades, he said. in Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville.

BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterWith the end of election season, the outcome has become a hot discussion topic at UF. On Wednesday, one of the post-election discussions, titled What just happened (and didnt happen)? featured seven panelists from UFs department of political science. The panel was a part of an informational series. At the panel, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Paul DAnieri spoke about foreign policy, saying there were a couple attempts to make it an issue, but the issues were abandoned when they didnt stick. In addition, Kenneth Wald, a distinguished political science professor, addressed the role of candidates religion. Professor Richard K. Scher took up the topic of Floridas voting past and present and mentioned that the process of counting all the ballots can take weeks. Senior lecturer Lynn Leverty discussed women voting in the election and the gender gap. Overall, Michael Martinez, political science chairman and professor, said the turnout was great. The more people that talk about the election, the more informed we become, said psychology senior Taheerah Hawkins, 21.

The training will also include how dentists can empathize with underprivileged patients as well as opportunities for students to work at federally funded health care centers before entering dental school. Through case-based learning, cultural competency workshops and the implementation of programs for students interested in public health and academic careers, the grant will not only have a positive impact on the dental curriculum but also prepare future UFCD graduates to meet the oral health needs of Floridas growing population, Olga Luaces, a 23-year-old second-year dental graduate student, wrote in an email.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterAn hour north of Gainesville, tucked down a road off Interstate 10, there is a campground draped in Spanish moss, covered in horse hooves and home to one of Floridas outdoor music festivals. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park & Campground in Live Oak is hosting its sixth Bear Creek Festival today through Sunday. onto the 800-acre campground, and more than 60 funk and dance bands will perform on the various stages. We make people want to shake their asses, director Paul Levine said. Attendees are encouraged to camp out, Levine said. Campers houses, 800 RV hookups and shade from the low-hanging oak trees. The music is part of the experience, Levine said, but also being outside and enjoying nature. There are wedding chapels if a love connection sparks in the closequartered tents which Levine said has happened before. However, if camping is too rugged, Holiday Inn, Best Western and EconoLodge are right off I-10. Aside from the music, activities are planned around the campground, Levine said. Festival attendees can participate in a disc golf tournament and Suwannee County, which aids Live Oak residents affected by Tropical Storm Debbie, he said. A char ity auction will support Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camps. Attendees can also dance at silent discos, go swimming in the Suwannee River, watch visual artists create in the live art gallery and eat from a spectrum of food options. Vendors will provide cuisine choices from Chinese to Greek to the lobster roll guy, Levine said. And in the spirit of camping, people can bring their own food, too. Bands are scheduled to start at 11 a.m. and end at 3 a.m., according to the websites schedule. Lotus, an electronic jazz-fusion group, is one of the headliners. The bands bassist, Jesse Miller, described its live performance as very energetic. The crowd is always really getting down, Miller, 33, said. People dance or just respond physically. Lotus, which will perform Friday at midnight during the festival, was founded in 2001 at Goshen College in Indiana, and is made up of Jesses brother, Luke Miller, on on drums; Chuck Morris on percussion; and Mike Rempel on guitar. Eleven years later, the band has performed at festivals all over the country, been signed by Coloradobased SCI Fidelity Records and recorded multiple albums and EPs, most recently its self-titled album. The bands sound has changed with each album. We try to avoid the trappings of genre, said Miller, who, along with his brother, writes many of the songs. Were very much a electronic music, from instrumental rock, from experimental things and try to blend it into something uniquely Lotus. Lotus primarily writes and per forms instrumental songs, Miller said, which leaves room for inter pretation through the music, not the lyrics. Its much more abstract than topical, he said. If its instrumental, the only kind of labeling youre giving something is a song name. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is familiar to Lotus, which appeared at Bear Creek Festival in 2009 and Wanee Festival, sponsored by the Allman Brothers Band, in 2011. That was interesting to see, Miller said of Wanee Festival, where Lotus stood out as the band with a lot of synthesizers and gear. There were these Southern guys in the back with their arms crossed, and we start bopping around, he said. By the end of the set, everyone was getting into it. country, including many appear ances in Florida, he said. For now, Miller said, the band looks forward to going back to Bear Creek Festival after being off the road most of fall. Miller said the festival serves as a reunion where musicians collaborate and catch up, mentioning Umphreys McGee, another headlining band that came out of Lotus region in Indiana. Levine agreed, referencing Bear Creeks relaxed environment as a catalyst for networking. More unique musical collaborations happen at Bear Creek than anywhere, he said. Weekend passes, which include camping, are $185, and tonights pre-party tickets are $50. Until the festival begins tonight, Levine is preparing Spirit of the and the bands are gearing up for three days of playing music, dancing to music and feeling the music. I think music is a language thats deeper than spoken language, Miller said, and something that people really connect to and feel.

So far, the mascots of every team our Florida Gators have demolished are food sources for real Florida alligators. In the wild, Albert and Alberta have diets that can include birds like those representing Bowling Green State University and University of South Carolina. Sometimes, dinner may be a pet like the dogs of Texas A&M University and University of Tennessee, and the cats of the University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University and University of Missouri. This week, we face a new challenge thats neither human nor animal: Cayenne. He is both a hot pepper and the mascot of our homecoming rival, Louisiana Univer sity at Lafayette.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9 BROCK SENGAvenue Contributing WriterWhen her best friends father died in April, Ashley Yawn turned to Go Radio lyrics to express what she couldnt say. I put on Redemption In The Verse, and played it as loud as my car stereo would allow, she said. We screamed the lyrics and cried together. The band that helped Yawn through a rough time will play tonight at High Dive with opening acts Paradise Fears and Stages and Stereos. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets are available for $12 at www. ticketweb.com. In 2007, Go Radio was formed after vocalist Jason Lancaster left his former band, Mayday Parade. The bands most recent album, Close The Distance, was released in September. Alex Reed, guitarist and vocalist for Go Radio, said the band couldnt be more excited and more satisGrowth is something a band should constantly be doing, he said. This record is proof of our growth and what we have been through in our lives the last couple years. Reed said the inspiration for Go Radios music comes from the adversity the members have overcome throughout their lives. I dont think we could make these songs up if we tried, he said. We actually live everything you hear.Go Radio plays tonight in Gainesville on Go To Hell tour

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 MIKE LLERENAAvenue Writer Max Cook recalls UFs football game against the Kentucky Wildcats a bit differently from most people. Cook, 24, transported a middle-aged couple uphill via rickshaw east on University Avenue just past 34th Street. At one point, the male passenger got out to push the bicycle taxi up the hill as Cook pulled. The feat was strenuous but yielded Cook a handsome $40 tip. The female passenger apologized for the trouble. Cook is a rickshaw driver for Id Ride That, a local transportation company that drives passengers around Gainesville with a onemanned bicycle taxi. The company was founded in May 2011 by Charlie Brown. Brown, 24, said he saw a rickshaw for the He volunteered for AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps at the time, aiding disaster recovery. Ive been a biker all my life, Brown said. I saw a rickshaw, and I was like Yeah, thats what I want to do. Brown is an Ocala native who moved to Gainesville about four years ago. He found a job opening as a rickshaw driver at Gainesville Rickshaws. Rickshaws and started Id Ride That in May 2011. He learned how to weld and enlisted the help of family friend Mike McClaine, who has and employs nine drivers. He said that although he has worked every Gator football home game in the last three to four years, he has never been to one. Cook said the company tends to cover most of the Midtown and downtown areas of Gainesville. The corner of Second Street and Main Street and the 17th Street area near Midtown are particularly good sources of business. Id Ride That employees can be distinguished by their signature yellow jerseys. Customers do not usually request the companys services by phone. Instead, pedestrians street and ask for a ride. Although Id Ride That operates for Gator football games, the company also works at events in surrounding areas. Cook said the company receives good business driving people in Jacksonville dur ing large-scale country concerts at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Id Ride That also works Jacksonville Jaguars football games. People go to these things expecting to pay some money, Brown said. For me, it works say, This is the most fun weve had the whole game. Id Ride That goes to Tallahassee when the Gators play at Florida State University and were at this seasons game against the Univer sity of Georgia Bulldogs in Jacksonville. Cook said low to moderate amounts of business bring the company $200 to $300 a night, while a particularly productive evening can yield about $600. Brown said the standard rate is $5 to $10, depending on weight, distance to the destination, workday busyness and other miscellaneous factors. However, if business is slow, the drivers are open to bartering. Past payments include free T-shirts and pizza. This is the best job Ive had so far, Cook said. Its a very unique business. It teaches you how to work with people and keep a posiBrown said Id Ride That sells company Tshirts. Customers can have the shirts delivered to them if they live within Gainesville city limits. The shirts cost $10 each.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionHow far will Floridas basketball team advance in the 2013 NCAA Tournament? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Junior tennis player Florent Diep faced a major adjustment coming to UF from France but has improved his results this fall. See story, page 15. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior safety Josh Evans (9) pursues Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell (26) during Floridas 17-9 loss to Georgia on Oct. 27 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer Leading the team in tackles is nothing for Josh Evans. He has dealt with challenges that extend beyond the gridiron, and his support system helped him become the team leader he is today. Evans revealed in October that his mother died of cancer when he was in eighth grade. Now, the New Jersey native has Hurricane Sandy on his mind. His family has been without power since the storm made landfall on Oct. 29. Evans depends on his father and his teammates to help pull him through hardship. My roommate, Jelani Jenkins, is also like a brother to me, Evans said. We talk about ball or school all the time. Id probably say family, coaches and friends were a main factor in me going out and having a good season so far. Evans said he has transformed from an immature player to one who devotes more time to studying After a hamstring injury hampered Evans during his junior season, he has started every game his senior year. Evans is second on the team with 62 tackles. Linebacker Jon Bostic is next with 52. among Southeastern Conference defensive backs. Hes just a better overall football player, Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said. Hes a better safety. Hes a better person. Hes a better everything. He just worked to develop his craft. Hes gotten a lot better. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn pointed to Evans offseason strength work as a reason for improvement. Quinn is pleased with Evans results. The former Rivals.com four-star safety approached coaches during the summer because he wanted to Senior safety succeeding despite off-field challenges JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Jelani Jenkins has struggled to stay let his injuries discourage him. The junior, who has started the past three games, missed three games earlier this season due to a fractured thumb and a pulled hamstring. He left two other games early because of the hamstring injury. Before 2012, Jenkins missed only one game a 26-21 win against Vanderbilt on Nov. 5, 2011, that he sat out due to a concussion suffered the previous week. Its been tough, but I trust the athletic training staff, Jenkins said. They possible. Theyve done a great job at it. (Im) just doing the best I can. Im happy the way the season is going. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said that even when Jenkins was on the sidelines, the weakside linebacker contributed. He has very good football smarts and wanted to be in and help the other players that stepped up when he went down, Quinn said. It wasnt like he removed himself or wasnt involved, so I thought that was a real tribute as a team guy and a leader saying, Im out, and I cant play, but Im certainly going to be here and help the guys that are playing. Jenkins recorded a sack last week against Missouri. He has notched 16 tackles and two sacks this season. Injury Update: Defensive tackle Leon Orr, running back Mack Brown and wideout and returner Andre Debose will all miss Saturdays game against Louisiana, coach Will Muschamp said Junior linebacker pushing through injuries for Gators END OF GREGULATION Floridas success in 2012-13 will hinge on the play of four wild cards. Mike Rosario, Casey Prather, Braxton Ogbueze and Michael Frazier II are unknowns. If all four are duds, the Gators will struggle to generate offense. offensive threat, Florida could be in line for a special year. One of coach Billy Donovans biggest chalscoring options. Given that Kenny Boynton has a strong Although Boynton led the team in scoring last season, the offense ran mostly through Erving Walker and Brad Beal, neither of whom will be back this year. Boyntons scoring could even decrease as he plays more minutes at point guard and attempts to become a distributor. Either way, Donovans teams have never been about one player carrying the offensive load. So who is going to step up? Fans have been waiting for Patric Young to show up with a dominant post game to match his imposing physicality, but dont hold your breath. Young and Donovan have both said Youngs focus remains on defense, rebounding and running the a more potent option offensively. Erik Murphy avpoints by drilling 59 threes last season, but dont expect those looks to come as easily with Beal and Walker out of the picture. Donovan has praised Murphys improved physicality and post moves, but after two seasons of watching Murphy do little aside from hang on the perimeter, Ill believe it when I see it. Scottie Wilbekin is taking over at point guard, and according to all the chatter, hes improved his ability to drive and hit the three. But for the past two seasons hes been involved in a lower percentage of offensive possessions than anyone else on the roster, so I dont see him suddenly carrying the load. This means the Gators will have to rely on one of four breakout candidates to step forward. Rosario seemed like the most likely choice a week ago, but he turned the ball over four times and missed badly on all three of his tries from beyond the arc in Thursdays exhibition.

on Wednesday. Orr is working his way back into playing shape after being hospitalized last week due to Debose has yet to return to practice after hyperextending his knee in practice last Thursday and missing Saturdays win against Missouri. Although Debose has just two receptions this season, he has been the Gators primary kick and punt returner. He leads the team with 479 combined return yards. Omarius Hines returned kicks and DeAnte SaunBrown suffered an ankle injury against Missouri. Not looking ahead: The Ragin Cajuns are tied for fourth in the Sun Belt Conference, but the Gators are not taking them lightly. When we put on the tape of Louisiana, it really showed this is a very good offense, Quinn said. Whatever conference theyre in, throw the conference out. Louisiana ranks 44th in the nation in total offense and passing yards per game. In a 40-24 win against Louisiana-Monroe last week, the Ragin Cajuns gained 607 yards. Any team that can do that, tention to, Jenkins said. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. drawn praise from Donovan for his consistency in practice, but translating that to the court is a different story, especially on defense. Frazier led UF with 21 points in UFs exhibition win against Nebraska-Kearney, proving only that he has elite range and can hit open shots. Ogbueze also made an impressive debut, showing explosiveness and athleticism en route to 15 points. Boynton said Ogbueze could be the type of scoring point guard the Gators need, but it was just one game against Division II competition. Donovan loves the effort of the two freshmen, but he cautioned against buying into one good day. Tournament last season, and his athleticism is undeniable. But hes never curbed the turnover problem, and two concussions in nine days smells like the start of a longterm issue. The Gators should be a great defensive team, but the offense will lag behind unless an unexpected contributor can rise to the challenge. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org.

TENNIsS MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterFrench-born Florent Diep has lived in the United States for less than a year, but he has er for the Gators and will look to build on that start this weekend at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, one of the collegiate Grand Slam tour naments. Life in the U.S. has not been easy for Diep. He faced many challenges after arriving at UF in January, including a new school and a new language. I didnt speak English, Diep said. With classes and everything, it was really, really tough. Before transferring to Florida, Diep played in professional tournaments and was rated as high as No. 673 in the world. But Dieps struggles adjusting to life in the U.S. translated directly to his play on the court. said. I didnt play good. rived in June, he noticed obstacles Diep was trying to overcome. language was something he had to develop over time. His English wasnt great when he arrived, and he had to adjust to college life in the United States, being a French guy. During his second semester, Diep got more comfortable, and the results have shown in his play. Diep won the USTA/ITA Southeast Regionals two weeks ago. He has now made that adjustment, so he is more comfortable when he comes out on dent in what he can do out there and has a better understanding of his game. Diep is one of Floridas key players in both singles and doubles. After playing in both collegiate and professional tournaments this fall, Diep has assumed a leadership role for the Gators. Shelton sees Diep continuing his tennis career beyond his stint in Gainesville. Flo not only wants to play well for the Gators, Shelton said. He wants to continue to develop as a player so he can go on to play professionally when his career is done here. But for now, Diep is focused on the task at hand, which is competing in New York. Diep will face Baylors Julian Lenz in the Im really excited to be able to play this tournament and try to do my best to represent the Gators the best that I can, Diep said.First-year player adjusting to Florida after coming from France GREG, from page 14Safety showing improved tackling in 2012improve his defensive calls. He entered this season with a chip on his shoulder. Evans wasnt pleased after recording only 10 tackles campaign. The senior recorded 26 stops during the same span in 2012. We bring him down in the box and as a tackler he is more physical, Quinn said. The tape shows that. I think the second thing and I really noticed it when we started spring practice his communication and the mental quickness needed for safety really improved. He had better recall of the calls and had the adjustment faster. Quinn, also from New Jersey, gives Evans a mentor outside of football. The two share conversations about more than just his improved play. Coach Will Muschamp named Evans the defensive player of the game after the senior recorded a careerhigh 12 tackles and an interception in Floridas win against Missouri. Muschamp cannot remember a missed tackle from the safety this season, which he said is critical coming from the last line of defense. Josh is a tough young man, Muschamp said. Hes a guy that will throw his eyes in there all the time. Evans isnt just watching out for oncoming ball car riers. His last two home games in The Swamp await day. Its going to be very emotional, Evans said. You come in, and you never think these four years are going to go by so fast, but here it is before my eyes. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org.

UF BARELY OUTREBOUNDED DIVISION II OPPONENT. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterAfter Floridas exhibition rout of Nebraska-Kearney on Nov. 1, coach Billy Donovan expressed concern about his teams rebounding. The Gators only outrebounded the Lopers 32-29. Division II UNK does not have a player taller than 6 feet 7 inches. Clearly, from a talent standpoint and a size standpoint, we had a huge advantage over them, Donovan said. I just saw time and time again our older veteran guys getting beat off the dribble and not rebounding. Five days later, Donovan again criticized his teams effort on the glass. ovan said. We are the best on-thetry. Unfortunately, while our guys are standing on the ground, somebody else is jumping. UF ranked sixth in the Southeastern Conference averaging only 35.7 rebounds per game last season. The Gators plus-2.8 rebounding margin ranked 79th in the country. No player on Floridas roster last year averaged more than seven rebounds per game. Center Patric boards per contest, while power forward Erik Murphy averaged Against Nebraska-Kearney, Young and Murphy combined for two came on offense. Thats not good enough, Donovan said. Theyve got to come down with it. Theyve got to go hard after it. As the Gators struggled to rebound the ball against the Lopers, Will Yeguete excelled. The 6-foot-7 almost half of the teams total. Where are the rest of these guys? Donovan said. be put to the test when UF squares off against Georgetown on Friday night in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic in Jacksonville. Due to cold and windy weather conditions on the deck of the USS Bataan at the Naval Station Mayport, Donovan expects both squads to struggle shooting. Allowing second-chance oppor tunities could be detrimental. Its been a point thats really been pounded on, but were playing against a team in Georgetown that is very long, very athletic, Donovan said. This is going to really, really expose what kind of commitment weve made to rebounding. 16, ALLIGATOR David Carr / Alligator StaffPatric Young pulls down a rebound during Floridas 101-71 exhibition win against Nebraska-Kearney on Thursday in the OConnell Center.

Dimaite will miss the season after suffering tears to the ACL and medial meniscus in her left knee. She will undergo surgery after Thanksgiving. You have seen ACLs tear before where it was just slight and awkward enough that it seems like nothing, Butler said. Unfortunately, I have a little bit of a trained eye. While going through a lowpost drill Saturday, a teammate hit Dimaite from the She was examined by Dr. Kevin Farmer, who decided an MRI would be necessary. Following a test on Monday, Dimaite found out her season gan. Its great evidence that we can have great plans as players or coaches and sometimes our timing is not what matters, Butler said. The injury is another setback for the native Lithuanian. Last season, Dimaite planned to redshirt to get stronger before she suffered a dislocated right ankle while preparing pean Championships. This season, she was expected to be a major contributor for the Gators. She had been practicing really well, redshirt junior Lily Svete said. We really did have high expectations for her. Dimaite is the third member of the current Gators roster to suffer an ACL tear. Svete and redshirt freshman Carlie Needles each previously received a medical redshirt due to similar injuries. Athletic trainer John Barrett said women are more susceptible to the injury than men. Womens hip structures are inherently differently set up than mens because they are child-bearing creatures, he said. Because of that, it puts more stress on the knees.

ALEXANDRA KRAMERAlligator Contributing WriterUF students have a reason to say they go to the best school in Florida. UFs world rank is No. 122 out of the top 400 universities, according to Times Higher Education. The Florida Institute of Technology and the University of South Florida, the only other ranked institutions in Florida, are more than 100 spots away. UF is ranked higher on the list than prestigious schools such as Dartmouth College, No. 124, and Georgetown University, No. 174. UF, which tied with University of California, Santa Cruz, has an overall score of 54.5 percent. The 2012-2013 world rankings use 13 categories to determine a universitys score.

I feel like I can go anywhere with my degree. The rankings by Thomson Reuters is the only global univer sity performance system to judge world-class universities across all of their core missions, according to Times Higher Education. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the university strives to be a great institution and to provide the best education value possible. UF places well in many other rankings, Orlando said. The reasons include top-notch faculty, reasonable tuition rates, a strong research enterprise and good job placement for our graduates. We compete well against our peer institutions and others. On a scale of 100, UF received a 52 in teaching, a 31.2 in international outlook, a 62.9 in research and a 56 in citations. Overall, the U.S. accounts for 76 of the top 200 schools, and seven of the top 10 universities are U.S. schools. According to a CNN article that analyzed the world rankings, American universities are becoming much less American and more global in their makeups. International students account for 9 percent of UFs population, more than any university in Florida, according to the UF website. However, there is always room to improve, Orlando said. Its important for students to know that the university will continue working to give them the best return on their tuition investment, Orlando said. Fifth-year civil engineering student Andrew Cone, 21, said his professors teach students main methods and equations they created and had published worldwide. He said his degree has such an impact that there are Gators around the world willing to help out fellow UF alumni.

The stage was packed in four semi truckser of show Megan Harmon. At the Gate 9 security checkpoint, security supervisor Taylor Hennings ate lunch while bundled in a beanie, blankets and boots. About half of the stadiums east and north sides have been unavailable to students since the construction began, she said. Hennings, a 22-year-old anthropology senior, said about 350 OConnell Center employees and 40 professionals worked in shifts around the clock since 6 a.m. Sunday. Hennings worked about 40 hours at the stadium this week. It was colder at 2 a.m. when we got out here, she said. It took her and three other employees armed with forklifts three hours to unload the stage parts into the stadium. The stage was delivered from Mountain Productions, a Pennsylvania-based staging company and is paid for on a year-to-year basis, Harmon said. Its four semis worth of gear, Chenery said. Although the week of Gator Growl preparation was hectic, Chenery said it was nothing compared to the breakdown after the show ends Friday night. Workers will have about six hours days game.

KATHRYN VARNAvenue WriterAn hour north of Gainesville, tucked down a road off Interstate 10, there is a campground draped in Spanish moss, covered in horse hooves and home to one of Floridas outdoor music festivals. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park & Campground in Live Oak is hosting its sixth Bear Creek Festival today through Sunday. onto the 800-acre campground, and more than 60 funk and dance bands will perform on the various stages. We make people want to shake their asses, director Paul Levine said. Attendees are encouraged to camp out, Levine said. Campers houses, 800 RV hookups and shade from the low-hanging oak trees. The music is part of the experience, Levine said, but also being outside and enjoying nature. There are wedding chapels if a love connection sparks in the closequartered tents which Levine said has happened before. However, if camping is too rugged, Holiday Inn, Best Western and EconoLodge are right off I-10. Aside from the music, activities are planned around the campground, Levine said. Festival attendees can participate in a disc golf tournament and Suwannee County, which aids Live Oak residents affected by Tropical Storm Debbie, he said. A char ity auction will support Suwannee Spirit Kids Music Camps. Attendees can also dance at silent discos, go swimming in the Suwannee River, watch visual artists create in the live art gallery and eat from a spectrum of food options. Vendors will provide cuisine choices from Chinese to Greek to the lobster roll guy, Levine said. And in the spirit of camping, people can bring their own food, too. Bands are scheduled to start at 11 a.m. and end at 3 a.m., according to the websites schedule. Lotus, an electronic jazz-fusion group, is one of the headliners. The bands bassist, Jesse Miller, described its live performance as very energetic. The crowd is always really getting down, Miller, 33, said. People dance or just respond physically. Lotus, which will perform Friday at midnight during the festival, was founded in 2001 at Goshen College in Indiana, and is made up of Jesses brother, Luke Miller, on on drums; Chuck Morris on percussion; and Mike Rempel on guitar. Eleven years later, the band has performed at festivals all over the country, been signed by Coloradobased SCI Fidelity Records and recorded multiple albums and EPs, most recently its self-titled album. The bands sound has changed with each album. We try to avoid the trappings of genre, said Miller, who, along with his brother, writes many of the songs. Were very much a electronic music, from instrumental rock, from experimental things and try to blend it into something uniquely Lotus. Lotus primarily writes and per forms instrumental songs, Miller said, which leaves room for inter pretation through the music, not the lyrics. Its much more abstract than topical, he said. If its instrumental, the only kind of labeling youre giving something is a song name. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is familiar to Lotus, which appeared at Bear Creek Festival in 2009 and Wanee Festival, sponsored by the Allman Brothers Band, in 2011. That was interesting to see, Miller said of Wanee Festival, where Lotus stood out as the band with a lot of synthesizers and gear. There were these Southern guys in the back with their arms crossed, and we start bopping around, he said. By the end of the set, everyone was getting into it. country, including many appear ances in Florida, he said. For now, Miller said, the band looks forward to going back to Bear Creek Festival after being off the road most of fall. Miller said the festival serves as a reunion where musicians collaborate and catch up, mentioning Umphreys McGee, another headlining band that came out of Lotus region in Indiana. Levine agreed, referencing Bear Creeks relaxed environment as a catalyst for networking. More unique musical collaborations happen at Bear Creek than anywhere, he said. Weekend passes, which include camping, are $185, and tonights pre-party tickets are $50. Until the festival begins tonight, Levine is preparing Spirit of the and the bands are gearing up for three days of playing music, dancing to music and feeling the music.

So far, the mascots of every team our Florida Gators have demolished are food sources for real Florida alligators. In the wild, Albert and Alberta have diets that can include birds like those representing Bowling Green State University and University of South Carolina. Sometimes, dinner may be a pet like the dogs of Texas A&M University and University of Tennessee, and the cats of the University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University and University of Missouri. This week, we face a new challenge thats neither human nor animal: Cayenne. He is both a hot pepper and the mascot of our homecoming rival, Louisiana Univer sity at Lafayette. Although it is unclear whether a Flor ida alligator would enjoy incorporating this kick into its diet, the Ragin Cajuns are undeniably Gator bait.

Cook, 24, transported a middle-aged couple uphill via rickshaw east on University Avenue just past 34th Street. At one point, the male passenger got out to push the bicycle taxi up the hill as Cook pulled. The feat was strenuous but yielded Cook a handsome $40 tip. The female passenger apologized for the trouble. Cook is a rickshaw driver for Id Ride That, a local transportation company that drives passengers around Gainesville with a onemanned bicycle taxi. The company was founded in May 2011 by Charlie Brown. Brown, 24, said he saw a rickshaw for the He volunteered for AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps at the time, aiding disaster recovery.

He learned how to weld and enlisted the help of family friend Mike McClaine, who has and employs nine drivers. He said that although he has worked every Gator football home game in the last three to four years, he has never been to one. Cook said the company tends to cover most of the Midtown and downtown areas of Gainesville. The corner of Second Street and Main Street and the 17th Street area near Midtown are particularly good sources of business. Id Ride That employees can be distinguished by their signature yellow jerseys. Customers do not usually request the companys services by phone. Instead, pedestrians street and ask for a ride. Although Id Ride That operates for Gator football games, the company also works at events in surrounding areas. Cook said the company receives good business driving people in Jacksonville dur ing large-scale country concerts at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. Id Ride That also works Jacksonville Jaguars football games. People go to these things expecting to pay some money, Brown said. For me, it works say, This is the most fun weve had the whole game.

Cook said low to moderate amounts of business bring the company $200 to $300 a night, while a particularly productive evening can yield about $600. Brown said the standard rate is $5 to $10, depending on weight, distance to the destination, workday busyness and other miscellaneous factors.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionHow far will Floridas basketball team advance in the 2013 NCAA Tournament? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. Junior tennis player Florent Diep faced a major adjustment coming to UF from France but has improved his results this fall. See story, page 15. Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffSenior safety Josh Evans (9) pursues Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell (26) during Floridas 17-9 loss to Georgia on Oct. 27 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer Leading the team in tackles is nothing for Josh Evans. He has dealt with challenges that extend beyond the gridiron, and his support system helped him become the team leader he is today. Evans revealed in October that his mother died of cancer when he was in eighth grade. Now, the New Jersey native has Hurricane Sandy on his mind. His family has been without power since the storm made landfall on Oct. 29. Evans depends on his father and his teammates to help pull him through hardship. My roommate, Jelani Jenkins, is also like a brother to me, Evans said. We talk about ball or school all the time. Id probably say family, coaches and friends were a main factor in me going out and having a good season so far. Evans said he has transformed from an immature player to one who devotes more time to studying After a hamstring injury hampered Evans during his junior season, he has started every game his senior year. Evans is second on the team with 62 tackles. Linebacker Jon Bostic is next with 52. among Southeastern Conference defensive backs. Hes just a better overall football player, Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray said. Hes a better safety. Hes a better person. Hes a better everything. He just worked to develop his craft. Hes gotten a lot better. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn pointed to Evans offseason strength work as a reason for improvement. Quinn is pleased with Evans results. The former Rivals.com four-star safety approached coaches during the summer because he wanted to Senior safety succeeding despite off-field challenges JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer Jelani Jenkins has struggled to stay let his injuries discourage him. The junior, who has started the past three games, missed three games earlier this season due to a fractured thumb and a pulled hamstring. He left two other games early because of the hamstring injury. Before 2012, Jenkins missed only one game a 26-21 win against Vanderbilt on Nov. 5, 2011, that he sat out due to a concussion suffered the previous week. Its been tough, but I trust the athletic training staff, Jenkins said. They possible. Theyve done a great job at it. (Im) just doing the best I can. Im happy the way the season is going. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said that even when Jenkins was on the sidelines, the weakside linebacker contributed. He has very good football smarts and wanted to be in and help the other players that stepped up when he went down, Quinn said. It wasnt like he removed himself or wasnt involved, so I thought that was a real tribute as a team guy and a leader saying, Im out, and I cant play, but Im certainly going to be here and help the guys that are playing. Jenkins recorded a sack last week against Missouri. He has notched 16 tackles and two sacks this season. Injury Update: Defensive tackle Leon Orr, running back Mack Brown and wideout and returner Andre Debose will all miss Saturdays game against Louisiana, coach Will Muschamp said Junior linebacker pushing through injuries for Gators END OF GREGULATION Floridas success in 2012-13 will hinge on the play of four wild cards. Mike Rosario, Casey Prather, Braxton Ogbueze and Michael Frazier II are unknowns. If all four are duds, the Gators will struggle to generate offense. offensive threat, Florida could be in line for a special year. One of coach Billy Donovans biggest chalscoring options. Given that Kenny Boynton has a strong Although Boynton led the team in scoring last season, the offense ran mostly through Erving Walker and Brad Beal, neither of whom will be back this year. Boyntons scoring could even decrease as he plays more minutes at point guard and attempts to become a distributor. Either way, Donovans teams have never been about one player carrying the offensive load. So who is going to step up? Fans have been waiting for Patric Young to show up with a dominant post game to match his imposing physicality, but dont hold your breath. Young and Donovan have both said Youngs focus remains on defense, rebounding and running the a more potent option offensively. Erik Murphy avpoints by drilling 59 threes last season, but dont expect those looks to come as easily with Beal and Walker out of the picture. Donovan has praised Murphys improved physicality and post moves, but after two seasons of watching Murphy do little aside from hang on the perimeter, Ill believe it when I see it. Scottie Wilbekin is taking over at point guard, and according to all the chatter, hes improved his ability to drive and hit the three. But for the past two seasons hes been involved in a lower percentage of offensive possessions than anyone else on the roster, so I dont see him suddenly carrying the load. This means the Gators will have to rely on one of four breakout candidates to step forward. Rosario seemed like the most likely choice a week ago, but he turned the ball over four times and missed badly on all three of his tries from beyond the arc in Thursdays exhibition.

on Wednesday. Orr is working his way back into playing shape after being hospitalized last week due to Debose has yet to return to practice after hyperextending his knee in practice last Thursday and missing Saturdays win against Missouri. Although Debose has just two receptions this season, he has been the Gators primary kick and punt returner. He leads the team with 479 combined return yards. Omarius Hines returned kicks and DeAnte SaunBrown suffered an ankle injury against Missouri. Not looking ahead: The Ragin Cajuns are tied for fourth in the Sun Belt Conference, but the Gators are not taking them lightly. When we put on the tape of Louisiana, it really showed this is a very good offense, Quinn said. Whatever conference theyre in, throw the conference out. Louisiana ranks 44th in the nation in total offense and passing yards per game. In a 40-24 win against Louisiana-Monroe last week, the Ragin Cajuns gained 607 yards. Any team that can do that, tention to, Jenkins said. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. drawn praise from Donovan for his consistency in practice, but translating that to the court is a different story, especially on defense. Frazier led UF with 21 points in UFs exhibition win against Nebraska-Kearney, proving only that he has elite range and can hit open shots. Ogbueze also made an impressive debut, showing explosiveness and athleticism en route to 15 points. Boynton said Ogbueze could be the type of scoring point guard the Gators need, but it was just one game against Division II competition. Donovan loves the effort of the two freshmen, but he cautioned against buying into one good day. Tournament last season, and his athleticism is undeniable. But hes never curbed the turnover problem, and two concussions in nine days smells like the start of a longterm issue. The Gators should be a great defensive team, but the offense will lag behind unless an unexpected contributor can rise to the challenge. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@ alligator.org.

TENNIS MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterFrench-born Florent Diep has lived in the United States for less than a year, but he has er for the Gators and will look to build on that start this weekend at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, one of the collegiate Grand Slam tour naments. Life in the U.S. has not been easy for Diep. He faced many challenges after arriving at UF in January, including a new school and a new language. I didnt speak English, Diep said. With classes and everything, it was really, really tough. Before transferring to Florida, Diep played in professional tournaments and was rated as high as No. 673 in the world. But Dieps struggles adjusting to life in the U.S. translated directly to his play on the court. said. I didnt play good. rived in June, he noticed obstacles Diep was trying to overcome. language was something he had to develop over time. His English wasnt great when he arrived, and he had to adjust to college life in the United States, being a French guy. During his second semester, Diep got more comfortable, and the results have shown in his play. Diep won the USTA/ITA Southeast Regionals two weeks ago. He has now made that adjustment, so he is more comfortable when he comes out on dent in what he can do out there and has a better understanding of his game. Diep is one of Floridas key players in both singles and doubles. After playing in both collegiate and professional tournaments this fall, Diep has assumed a leadership role for the Gators. Shelton sees Diep continuing his tennis career beyond his stint in Gainesville. Flo not only wants to play well for the Gators, Shelton said. He wants to continue to develop as a player so he can go on to play professionally when his career is done here. But for now, Diep is focused on the task at hand, which is competing in New York. Diep will face Baylors Julian Lenz in the Im really excited to be able to play this tournament and try to do my best to represent the Gators the best that I can, Diep said.First-year player adjusting to Florida after coming from France GREG, from page 14Safety showing improved tackling in 2012improve his defensive calls. He entered this season with a chip on his shoulder. Evans wasnt pleased after recording only 10 tackles campaign. The senior recorded 26 stops during the same span in 2012. We bring him down in the box and as a tackler he is more physical, Quinn said. The tape shows that. I think the second thing and I really noticed it when we started spring practice his communication and the mental quickness needed for safety really improved. He had better recall of the calls and had the adjustment faster. Quinn, also from New Jersey, gives Evans a mentor outside of football. The two share conversations about more than just his improved play. Coach Will Muschamp named Evans the defensive player of the game after the senior recorded a careerhigh 12 tackles and an interception in Floridas win against Missouri. Muschamp cannot remember a missed tackle from the safety this season, which he said is critical coming from the last line of defense. Josh is a tough young man, Muschamp said. Hes a guy that will throw his eyes in there all the time. Evans isnt just watching out for oncoming ball car riers. His last two home games in The Swamp await day. Its going to be very emotional, Evans said. You come in, and you never think these four years are going to go by so fast, but here it is before my eyes. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org.

UF BARELY OUTREBOUNDED DIVISION II OPPONENT. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterAfter Floridas exhibition rout of Nebraska-Kearney on Nov. 1, coach Billy Donovan expressed concern about his teams rebounding. The Gators only outrebounded the Lopers 32-29. Division II UNK does not have a player taller than 6 feet 7 inches. Clearly, from a talent standpoint and a size standpoint, we had a huge advantage over them, Donovan said. I just saw time and time again our older veteran guys getting beat off the dribble and not rebounding. Five days later, Donovan again criticized his teams effort on the glass. ovan said. We are the best on-thetry. Unfortunately, while our guys are standing on the ground, somebody else is jumping. UF ranked sixth in the Southeastern Conference averaging only 35.7 rebounds per game last season. The Gators plus-2.8 rebounding margin ranked 79th in the country. No player on Floridas roster last year averaged more than seven rebounds per game. Center Patric boards per contest, while power forward Erik Murphy averaged Against Nebraska-Kearney, Young and Murphy combined for two came on offense. Thats not good enough, Donovan said. Theyve got to come down with it. Theyve got to go hard after it. As the Gators struggled to rebound the ball against the Lopers, Will Yeguete excelled. The 6-foot-7 almost half of the teams total. Where are the rest of these guys? Donovan said. be put to the test when UF squares off against Georgetown on Friday night in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic in Jacksonville. Due to cold and windy weather conditions on the deck of the USS Bataan at the Naval Station Mayport, Donovan expects both squads to struggle shooting. Allowing second-chance oppor tunities could be detrimental. Its been a point thats really been pounded on, but were playing against a team in Georgetown that is very long, very athletic, Donovan said. This is going to really, really expose what kind of commitment weve made to rebounding. 16, ALLIGATOR David Carr / Alligator StaffPatric Young pulls down a rebound during Floridas 101-71 exhibition win against Nebraska-Kearney on Thursday in the OConnell Center. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writerte took in Saturdays practice may have seemed ordinary to the untrained eye. Coach Amanda Butler knew otherwise. Dimaite will miss the season after suffering tears to the ACL and medial meniscus in her left knee. She will undergo surgery after Thanksgiving. You have seen ACLs tear before where it was just slight and awkward enough that it seems like nothing, Butler said. Unfortunately, I have a little bit of a trained eye. While going through a lowpost drill Saturday, a teammate hit Dimaite from the She was examined by Dr. Kevin Farmer, who decided an MRI would be necessary. Following a test on Monday, Dimaite found out her season gan. Its great evidence that we can have great plans as players or coaches and sometimes our timing is not what matters, Butler said. The injury is another setback for the native Lithuanian. Last season, Dimaite planned to redshirt to get stronger before she suffered a dislocated right ankle while preparing pean Championships. This season, she was expected to be a major contributor for the Gators. She had been practicing really well, redshirt junior Lily Svete said. We really did have high expectations for her. Dimaite is the third member of the current Gators roster to suffer an ACL tear. Svete and redshirt freshman Carlie Needles each previously received a medical redshirt due to similar injuries. Athletic trainer John Bar rett said women are more susceptible to the injury than men. Womens hip structures are inherently differently set up than mens because they are child-bearing creatures, he said. Because of that, it puts more stress on the knees. Butler said Dimaite is diswill be ready to return next season. Weve cried and been sad the past few days, but then you have to choose to recover, Butler said. Thats what well see her do.UFs trend of ACL WOMENS BASKETBALLDimaite
