As of Friday, the Alligators Board of Directors In December 2009, UFs Board of Trustees passed a rule prohibiting distribution of all publications on campus unless apwas not consulted about the change, and although the proposal was published, UF made no effort to reach out to the newspaper. Since then, the Alligator has fought to keep its orange racks, and by extension, its ability to reach the Student Body. block UFs regulation on the distribution of publications on First Amendment grounds. Under the terms of the settlement, the Alligator would replaced its modular black racks. All other orange Alligator racks would be licensed and allowed to remain on campus.Point guard returns to rotation: Quarterback Jeff Driskel has been cleared to play after missing Saturdays game with a sprained right ankle.

Like most tourists, she got lost on the subway and ate giant sandwiches, but she wasnt just there to sightsee: She spent most of her time aiding Hurricane Sandy The 19-year-old public relations UF sophomore rode 17 hours on a bus with 39 other students and two staff members on a relief trip sponsored by UF Hillel in partnership with the Columbia/Barnard Hillel in New York. The group worked in Rockaway Beach in Queens. The bus left Thursday afterFriday, said UF Hillel staff member Melissa Stern. The area was eerie, she said. trucks were in the middle of the streets, Stern said. Inside the houses, there were watermarks higher than Sterns head. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall. The group mostly tore down parts of houses, like drywall and decks, that were too water-damaged to stay standing, she said. In the two days the UF Hillel group was there, a lot was accomplished. A lot of families said that we got so much done in one day that more than two weeks, she said. Stern spoke of a few families who had sons who were all friends. The guys told all of the students things better, theyd take them around Rockaway Beach and let them stay at their houses. They were offering anything they could to show their gratitude, she said. staff a trip like this.

Cotillos friend, Kaitlyn Kramer, said she was warned of West Nile Virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses when she studied abroad. Cotillo did not say that friends told her that they were warned of the disease while studying abroad. Cotillo also wanted to make it clear that she was surprised that the disease was found in Alachua County, not the United States. An article in Mondays edition of the Alligator incor rectly stated that Palestinian rockets have killed at least 18 people since Wednesday. In fact, three people have been killed so far in Israel, and 107 Palestinians have been killed since the Israeli airstrikes began. 12th Annual Latin American Film Festival The George A.

ceived such a positive response from students that it hopes to sponsor other volunteer visits in the future, she said. For Albert, putting faces to the Hurricane Sandy damage had the most impact. Theyre just resilient, and having that image in the back of my mind makes me grateful for all I have, she said. It also changed how Albert thinks about charity work. They dont need our pity, she said. They need us to come alongside them and help them. On the second day, Albert said she and some friends were tearing out insulation with a man named Vincent and his wife. At the end of the day, to show gratitude for their help, Vincent went out and bought them the best eggplant and chicken Parmesan sandwiches on the island, she said. And we just sat on his porch for an hour and a half and ate and talked to him, Albert said. He felt so blessed and honored that these people from South Florida would come help him. Columbia/Barnard Hillel Executive Director Brian Cohen felt similarly. This is an unbelievable thing that the students did, Cohen wrote in an email. To come up here and spend so much time on the bus to volunteer for two days they really did help those in need. Contact Kathryn Varn at kvarn@alligator.org. THE UF CHEERLEADERS WERE GROUNDED ON FRIDAY. RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Contributing WriterThe University Athletic Association addressed Monday the marketing departments decision to ban UF cheerleaders from tumbling and performing stunts at practices, events and games. We understand that the modern day culture of cheerleading encour ages acrobatic stunts, which require tremendous athletic skill, said Steve McClain, UAA senior associate athletics director, in an emailed statement to the Alligator. The reality, however, is that the danger associated with these types of stunts is simply not worth the risk to the cheerleaders or to the University of Florida. Jason Merslich, a 27-year-old for mer Gators cheerleader, former team coach and still-involved volunteer, said the cheerleaders frequent practicing makes it less risky. According to the GatorZone cheer leading website, the teams practice two to three times a week to work on tumbling skills, stunting, pyramids and basket tosses. Id like to see someone whos not an athlete throw someone in the air above their head or be held in the air and stay steady on one leg, Merslich said. McClain reminded people in the email that cheerleading is not one of UFs varsity competitive sports. Instead, he said, it is a support group intended to generate spirit at UF events. The decision to effectively ground the UF cheerleaders was not one that was made lightly, McClain said in the email. Instead of waiting for a tragedy to occur, McClain said in the email, we are taking a proactive stance to protect the cheerleaders. 4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2012Brett Le Blanc / Alligator File PhotoFlorida Cheerleaders perform during the Gators basketball game against Rider University at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in 2011. L OC AL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing Writer Arcade snuck out of the venue Friday night with a pair of unusual and illegal souvenirs: two stolen paintings. Mars co-owner Allison Basker said the staff noticed the paintings were gone at about midnight. She said the paintings were priced at $25 each. One of the paintings stolen off the walls belonged to 22-year-old artist Jessica Cook. My initial reaction was, of course, anger but also confusion, Cook said. Who steals independent art? Basker said the artwork was taken someed until after midnight. Earlier in the evening, she said, someone tried to take a painting, but staff and patrons thwarted the would-be thief. Although an attendant was present in the gallery, she said, a bartender reported that someone tried to walk out with a painting, and a bystander stopped him. Sometime later, the two pieces went missing. Its a small town a small scene, she quickly. The missing paintings hung with about eight other canvases on the black walls of the foyer. The room has doubled as an art gallery and conduit between the bar and arcade since Mars reopened last month. Basker said shes ruled out the possibility of the thief walking out the front door. She said whoever snuck out with the hot items must have used a back door possibly the door to the right of the stage where bands were loading and unloading gear and must have been familiar with the building. Were pretty sure the person who did it hangs out here a lot, she said. Local artist Kat Van Riets painting, titled Videre Verum, was also taken. Riet posted a notice about the stolen painting on Reddit, asking for help in tracking it down. Cook said she learned her painting had been stolen when she read an alert post Sunday morning about the theft on Mars Facebook page. Read the rest of this story at alligator.org. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Staff WriterPolice confronted a suspect at gunpoint after a call that he was pointing a silver pellet gun at cars. Michael Petersen, 62, was arrested on charges of attempted aggravated battery and evidencing prejudice while committing an offense Sunday afternoon. At 2:14 p.m., Petersen pointed his pellet gun at James Breedon, of Gainesville, as he drove west on Southwest 16th Avenue, according to a GPD arrest report. Gainesville Police went to the bus stop at 716 SW 16th Ave. and found Peter son with what looked like a handgun. dered Petersen repeatedly to drop what they thought was his handgun. Once they detained him, they realized the gun was a pellet gun. Petersen said he had been pointing the pellet gun at cars because he thought it was funny, according to an email from GPD spokesman Ben Tobias. Peters en said he had the pellet gun because he was going to go to the Bo Diddley Commu nity Plaza and point it at the black people so they dont f--k with me, according to the report. He said he was convinced the black people on the plaza would respect him after he scared them. Petersen is being held on a $10,000 bond. Contact Benjamin S. Brasch at bbrasch@alligator.org. HILLEL, from page 1Residents appreciated all of the help The meeting is on Dec. 7The settlement will be presented to UFs Board of Trustees for consideration at its Dec. 7 meeting. If accepted, the settlement would go into effect immediately, and the Alligator would lawsuit by Dec. 10. The Alligators attorney, Tom Julin, has also proposed revisions to UFs rule on distribution of publications to ensure that UF will not use the modular racks to censor the Alligator or prevent access to the paper. We, the editors of the Alligator, feel the settlement is a fair and just compromise. After three years of struggling with this issue, we are hopeful that UF will accept the settlement and that the dispute will come to a close. Our focus has always been on bringing independent and unbiased news to the Student Body. We hope that with this settlement, well always be free to do just that. Thank you for your continued support.

Gainesville gamers win in more than just the virtual world CAROLINA GARCIAAlligator Contributing WriterThis holiday season, donating toys to sick children is being made easy by a Gainesville company all you have to do is like them. Locally owned business New Scooters 4 Less is making an impression in Gainesville through their online campaign Likes 4 Tikes. Collin Austin, owner of New Scooters 4 Less and the companys chief of everything, enthusiastically shared the history behind the campaign and the prospects for this year. My sister is a nurse at Shands, and she told me that she sees kids spending Christmas in a hospital bed every year, Austin said. It made me think, since we want to give back, that maybe those kids should be our focus. The initial pledge of the online campaign was that for every like the New Scooters 4 Less Facebook page received, the business would donate $1 to buying toys for sick children at Shands. Quickly after the campaign started, it gained unexpected steam and developed a new pledge. For every like the Facebook page receives, New Scooters 4 Less will donate one new toy to Shands. Celebrations Catering, who is sponsoring the campaign with Scooters 4 Less, offers a Thanksgiving feast meal package that allows customers to purchase a premade Thanksgiving meal with all of the trimmings for $150. For every $150 the company receives, it is donating $15 to the Likes 4 Tikes cause. Along with Celebrations Catering, the youthful photo decor company Fracture has thrown its hat in the ring. Fracture plans to mirror the New Scooters 4 Less social media campaign by donating one toy to Shands for every new like on their Facebook page. All the toys donated to the hospital would be placed at the doors of the childrens rooms unwrapped. For Austin, that wasnt good enough. He will wrap and decorate the gifts for the children at Shands on Dec. 20. We told Shands that we hope to generate enough toys to where they have to give them to said. Plus, the best part of getting a toy is unwrapping it we want them to have that. Local company pledges to play Santa for ill childrenCRIME BENJAMIN S.

A witness, Antron Hutchinson, and the victim, Ashley Kerney, told Gainesville Police that Battles was arguing with Kerney when he got angry and grabbed her hair and slammed her against a wall. Battles then pulled her to the ground and punched her in the face repeatedly. After Battles attack, there was blood throughout his apartment, Kerneys nose was bleeding, the right side of her face was bruised and swollen, and her lip was cut, according to a GPD arrest report. According to the report, when police questioned Battles, he said Kerney tried to hit him, so he grabbed her and pulled her to the ground. Battles told police that as he and Kerney fell, she hit her face on the corner of a dresser. Later in the police interview, Battles stopped and said, Let me tell you the truth, according to the report. Battles then told police he had hit her in the face multiple times.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorI am writing in response to Leila Milgrims insightful article Gainesvilles Hidden Treasures: Vegan-Friendly Restaurants (Nov. 18). I am not surprised to hear about these delicious vegan dishes in UFs backyard. It is especially important for restaurants near campuses to offer a variety of vegan options on their menus. According to a study by food-service provider Bon Apptit, the number of college students who identify themselves as vegetarian has risen by 50 percent since 2005, and the number of vegan students has more than doubled during the same period. have their throats slit while theyre still conscious and that many chickens are scalded to death in hot water. Its simply not the kind of industry that students want to support. In addition to enduring cruelty, farmed animals produce about 130 times as much waste as the entire human population of the United States does. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the runoff from factory farms pollutes our rivers and lakes more than all other industrial sources combined. From the smallest community colleges to the largest state schools, vegan options are everywhere nowadays as a direct result of student pressure. Students interested in adopting a healthier and more compassionate diet can visit www.peta2.com to receive a free vegetar ian/vegan starter kit. Kenneth Montville College campaigns assistant People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals One of us is Muslim, the other Jewish. But we share one thing in common: We are both pro-Israel in view. You ask, How can you then be critical of the Israeli governments policies? Our desire for Israels long-term prosperity is rooted in the adage, Dissent is the best form of patriotism. Blind support for Israel like we see among certain UF students has never been productive, neither for the supporters nor for the government. Lets get real. A critical analysis of Israels policies toward the Occupied Palestinian Territories, based on human rights groups reports and other unbiased third par ties, is absent from the political discourse in this country. This comes as no surprise. Israel has been the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid not Haiti or the starving African countries since World War II, much of it being in military weaponry. To expect the media in the U.S. to provide a fair coverage of Israeli policies is a little better than expecting the Soviet newspapers in the 1960s to provide a fair coverage of Castros Cuba. To be fair, many students are genuinely confused. Theyre skeptical of American-biased coverage, but they wonder, Doesnt Israel have a right to self-defense being under constant rocket attacks from the Palestinians? to be contextualized. Palestinians are not subhumans who have an irrational lust for death and destruction in Israel. Their terrorism is born from having lived under Israeli military occupation for the last 45 years, the longest-lasting military occupation in modern times. The UN Human Rights Councils 2008 report merits citation: [Palestinian terrorism] must be condemned and have been condemned. Common sense, however, dictates that a distinction must be drawn between acts of mindless ter ror, such as acts committed by Al Qaeda, and acts committed in the course of a war of national liberation against colonialism, apartheid or military occupation. While such ing a painful but inevitable consequence of colonialism, apartheid or occupation In the present international climate it is easy for a state to justify its repressive measures as a response to terrorism and to expect a sympathetic hearing. Israel exploits the present international fear of terrorism to the full. But this will not solve the Palestinian problem. Israel must address the occupation and the violation of human rights and international humanitarian ism as a distraction, as a pretext for failure to confront the root cause of Palestinian violence the occupation. when Israel ends its brutal military occupation of the Palestinians. This isnt our opinion but that of the UN Human Rights Council. How do we put pressure on Israel to stop its oppression of the Palestinians? Easy. If the rest of us who still have a moral conscience tell Congress and the Obama administration to suspend all military aid to Israel until it ends its human rights violations, lets see how long Israel can maintain its subjugation. Zulkar Khan is a UF microbiology junior and Michela Martinazzi is a UF art history junior.For Israel and for Palestine Guest ColumnZulkar Kahn & Michela MartinazziSpeaking Out After riding a school bus nearly my entire elementary through high school career and riding the RTS bus at UF for two years, Ive had the opportunity to observe several surprising similarities and interesting differences between these two modes of transportation. Obviously, theres the differences in technology and taste you would see on the bus (like Kindles or paperback books, Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers or physics homework, and patty-cake songs or furious texting), but here are some more you might not have considered. Similarities: Both types of buses come in contact with passengers who are extremely confused as to where they are or where theyre going. For the college buses, this can happen to freshmen, but mostly it happens after dark around 2 a.m., when the bars vehicle capable of taking them home. Just like you wrote your bus number on your hand for the mentally counting on themselves to remember which Later Gator bus to catch A, B, C, D or F. And when it comes to vomiting, Ive seen it happen on usually accompanied by crying. Just like old school days, there will always be someone mined to make it in the bus door before it closes. Sometimes they make it, and sometimes they dont. But its always kind of funny seeing them run and not make it. That hasnt changed since elementary school. Theres also a great opportunity for the procrastinators to Unless the RTS bus is full, and you have to stand. Which brings me to my next point. Differences: In the old days, there was no missing the bus just because FULL BUS was plastered on the front (Im looking at you, No. 38). There was no worry that you were going to be late for an exam because of something out of your control. The bus always came, and if it didnt, your teachers would be notison for coming late or not coming at all. There was no standing on the bus and holding onto whatand there were no awkward crotches in faces or standing uncomfortably close to a stranger who has B.O. In school buses, you always had a nice, safe place to sit and catch up on your homework, trade Pokemon cards or feed your Giga Pet. Probably my most prevalent point in these differences is the fact that in school, you pretty much knew the people on the bus and were able to sit where you wanted. On an RTS bus, anyone with $1.50 is allowed to ride. And by anyone, I am including that smelly hobo that sits right next to you, even though there is an entirely empty bus, and youre afraid to even turn your head an inch for fear he might start up a conversation. In my experience, RTS buses are more awkward than school buses. While buses in the old days were relatively noisy in the afternoons after school, RTS buses are usually quiet, except for the occasional girl with the annoying voice who talks loudly on her phone about nothing anyone wants to hear; the only people spared from the speech being those who have become accustomed to wearing headphones, the universal sign for dont talk to me. uncomfortable stares either at the ground, out the window or behind the person who thinks youre staring at them. Finally, there was never any weird voice declaring, Stop requested. For your own safety, when crossing the street, please pass behind the bus. I cant imagine any RTS bus driver that hasnt had nightmares about this voice at least once.

The store will be located at the Millhopper Shopping Center on the corner of Northwest 16th Boulevard and Northwest 43rd Street, and the grand opening events will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 15 and noon to 5 p.m. on Dec. 16. Owens said the prices will range from 99 cents to about $1.50 a piece. While the main shop is opening in December, a kiosk selling a selection of their chocolate is planned to open next week in The Oaks Mall, which will be run by Owens 21-year-old son Zach. Its right next to the childs play area, Owens said. We thought that might be a good idea. Owens, who has been making chocolate for 25 years, comes from a family of confectioners. Her mother owned a doughnut shop, and her brother was a chocolatier. Owens said Drenched in Chocolate will sell traditional treats such as fudge, caramel-covered apples and marshmallows that are all made in the shop. It will also have some out-of-the-ordinary goods, including chocolate spaghetti, chocolate-covered bugs and chocolate toothpaste. Another distinctive characteristic Drenched in Chocolate will provide is chocolate photography, which allows customers to scan photos or other images onto their chocolate. Its a relatively new technology, Owens said. The image is scanned onto the chocolate as a thin layer of sugar. For their artisan collection, the chocolate is made from ingredients from around the world such as cinnamon from Ecuador and Devon cream from England. Lizzy Wetzel, an 18-year-old UF zoology freshman, said she looks forward to visiting the shop to cure her sweet tooth. If I hear the word chocolate, Im happy, she said. As far as a target audience for Drenched in Chocolate, Owens said it aims for the audience its name suggests: chocolate lovers. Whatever your chocolate mood, we have you covered, she said.Chocolate shop of pure imagination to open with Willy Wonka cast memberLOC AL SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff Writer through Jenn Prevots family last weekend. As news of Hostess Brands bankruptcy spread, the 19-year-old food science and human nutrition sophomore had to act fast. My stepdad said we have to stock up so we can have it for the rest of our lives, Prevot joked. We went to three different supermarkets because they were all sold out. It was like like an epic journey for Ding Dongs, Ho Hos and Twinkies. Hostess Brands announced Friday it would begin to wind down operations immediately after declaring bankruptcy. The company cited disagreements with unions But theres a glimmer of hope. On Monday, Hostess Brands and one of their biggest unions agreed to a mediation session in hopes of avoiding a Wonderbread-less world, according to the New York Times. The two groups will meet today. If no deal is reached, Hostess will go back to court on Wednesday to push for a close-out plan. The feasible end of Hostess products resulted in the brands fans rushing to stores to scoop up as many treats as they could Bobby Nellis, a customer service representative with the Butler Plaza Publix Super Market, located at 3100 SW 35th Blvd., said after Hostess bankruptcy went public, the store offered half-off discounts on all the manufacturers products the store had left in stock. Nellis said his Publix sold the last of its 36 remaining boxes of Twinkies on Saturday. I heard plenty of people looking for Hostess products, Nellis said. (Customers) said that everywhere else was sold out, too. Local restaurants may also feel backlash from the brands potential bankruptcy. Munchies 420 Cafe serves fried Twinkies drizzled in the customers choice of sauce. Cameron Douglas, the restaurants kitchen manager, said its hard to say what the loss of the dishs signature ingredient will do to Munchies dessert menu. Its one of our top-selling dessert items, Douglas said. We havent made any decisions about what to do yet.

At least not without some Ranch dressing for dipping. Now onto the picks! The Fighting Irish (-1.5) will roll, pat and mark the Trojans with a B, and put them in the oven for Brian Kelly and me because USC has been the most disappointing team in college football.

Notre Dame punches its ticket to Miami.JOE MORGANUSC (+1.5) will lift the spirits of Twinkie fans against the Irish because... Just like Hostess a week ago, these Trojans are on the brink of collapse. But USC has defeated Notre Dame nine of the past 10 times and six of the past eight times in sunny Los Angeles. Grab a Twinkie before they run out, Gainesville. Celebrate another Irish choke job.ADAM PINCUSPicks Column SITE: KICKOFF: TV/RADIO: SEE PICKS, P AGE 14 ADAM PINCUSFlorida entered the season without a clear-cut starter at quarterback. Now the same questions return for the Gators as they head to Tallahassee for a critical road season game of 2012. Sophomore Jeff Driskel, who started nine games under center this season, will return from a sprained right ankle he suffered against Louisiana on Nov. 10. Fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett completed 14 of 22 passes for 154 yards in Saturdays 23-0 win against Jacksonville State. Were going to see how the week goes, coach Will Muschamp said of Driskels chances of starting. I dont know. I know right now, based on yesterday, that he will play in the game. How much hes going to play, whether hes going to start, I dont know that right now. No. 6 Florida (10-1) must beat No. 10 Florida State (10-1) at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in order to remain in the national title discussion. UF is currently ranked No. 4 in the BCS. The Gators have dropped the past two meetings against the Seminoles, including a 21-7 loss at home last season after which Muschamp called his team soft. The second-year coach feels the Gators offensive line is better equipped to combat the Seminoles top-ranked defense. Florida turned the ball over four times and ran for 54 yards last season against Florida State. Brissett entered the game at Driskel gives the Gators a running threat at quarterback. Thats coachs decision, Brissett said on Saturday after defeating Jacksonville State. Hopefully we can get Jeff back fast and whatever [Muschamp] decides, be ready for. As the Gators offense contends with the nations No. 1 defense, UFs fourth-ranked defense has to deal with redshirt senior in Heisman Trophy discussions earlier this season.David Carr / Alligator S taffQuarterback Jeff Driskel (6) carries the ball during Floridas 27-20 victory against Driskel cleared to play against Florida State JOSH JURNOVOYCoach Will Muschamp isnt worried about style points. Although an impressive win against Florida State combined with a Notre Dame loss on Saturday would likely land UF in the national title game, Muschamp doesnt care about mar gin of victory. To him, the Gators record speaks for itself. You play in our league and you play in some of the venues weve gone and played in, and regardless of what it looks, how it looks my wife told me I was sexy after the game, Muschamp said. We dont win sexy, but she said Youre sexy. Thats a positive. She was kidding. Florida has not had many sexy wins this season, and Saturdays 23-0 victory against Jacksonville State wasnt one of them. The offense only scored one touchdown against the 108thranked defense in the FCS. Eight FCS schools scored 23 points or more against the Gamecocks this season. The Gators average margin of victory is 16.3 points the lowest for any of the 11 teams in UF history that have won 10 or more games in a single season. Defensive tackle Omar Huntwinning tight games. Thats just our style, Hunter said. Thats just how we play football. We love winning those hard-fought games. Those are the games that really show people how tough this football team is, the ones that go in the fourth quarter. You have to battle your way through. Muschamp reiterated that he wanted his team to avoid focusing on other games. The Gators need only worry about beating the Seminoles on Saturday. Weve got to take care of business Saturday, Muschamp said.

Thats my message for our football team today at 3 oclock. Lets under stand whats at stake and whats impor tant, and thats focusing on the game. Seminoles front: Florida State boasts one of the nations top pass rushes. Seminoles defensive ends Cornellius Carradine and Bjoern Werner are tied for eighth and 12th in the country in sacks, respectively. Carradine has recorded 10.5 sacks this season, while Werner is only one behind. Florida ranks 109th in the country with 32 sacks allowed. Florida State ranks No. 24 in the country with 28 sacks this season. The Seminoles also boast the nations No. 5 pass defense, allowing 165.6 yards per game on an NCAA-best 4.9 yards per attempt. Carradine and Werner are the two ends that you know kind of start it for them, Muschamp said. Theyre really good pass rushers. They create vertical separation, and they do a nice job of creating some problems. Injury update: Offensive tackle Chaz Green and fullback Hunter Joyer should both be ready to play against Florida State on Saturday, Muschamp said on Monday. Both players are expected to return to practice today. Green left Saturdays game with an ankle injury and Joyer sat for nearly the entire game after suffering a left thigh Muschamp added that linebacker Neiron Ball and wide receiver Andre Debose would return to practice today and play on Saturday. Ball didnt play against Jacksonville State on Saturday after suffering an ankle injury the previous week against Louisiana. Debose has not played since Oct. 27 against Georgia after injuring his knee in practice on Nov. 1.

The senior linebacker notched six more tackles and is now tied for No. 46 nationally with 98. He also ranks second in the NCAA with six interceptions. David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida coach Will Muschamp walks around The Swamp and waves to the fans after his teams 27-20 victory against Lousiana on Nov. 10. Leading off with a 58-38 record is Rivals. coms Bryan Im Not Embarrassed Holt, who refused to admit his hometown of Tampa the Buccaneers biggest game of the season against division rival Atlanta this weekend. Tampa just won a thriller to move to 6-4, but more than 7,400 tickets remained as of press James but no one is there to hear it, did it really make a sound? Ranking second at 55-41 is the Miami Her alds Matt Its only two tires, bro Watts, who actually asked a colleague for two tires off his car so Wattsy could go pick up his impounded a kidney transplant, dont get too close to him. He may not ask permission next time. Sporting bronze at 53-43 is alligatorSports editor Greg I eat quarterbacks for breakfast! Luca, whose obsession with Jadeveon Clowney has transcended fandom. Luca constantly bunch of helpless Xavier Nixons while bellowing primal yells. Greg, youre a 5-foot-9 white kid. Embrace who you are, man. In fourth with a 52-44 record is The Associated Press Mark Lets make fun of the South! Long, who took a little too much pleasure in watching a YouTube video of some Alabama fans celebrating Oregons loss on Saturday. Mark, we already know you live vicariously through down-on-their-luck Southerners. Just dont be so blatant about it, you Honey-BooBoo wannabe. Kicking off the latter half of the standings at 50-46 is alligatorSports writer Josh Matt Ellama is good at football Jurnovoy, who still cannot pronounce the name of the Gators star safety after covering the team for more than three months. We would insult you further, but frankly this is just sad. Sitting in sixth with a 49-47 record is the Palm Beach Posts Jason Room temperature too damn cold for a run. Hey, Jason, there are these great indoor facilities people use called gymnasiums. Or you could just man up, you Twinkie. Avoiding the cellar at 46-50 is alligatorSports assistant editor Joe You clearly just dont understand the politics of Valdosta Morgan, who berated a columnist from the Valdosta Daily Times for having the audacity to suggest that something should be done to improve Valdosta States attendance. Nobody goes because nobody cares about Valdosta football. Grow up and get over it. And in dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 44-52 is alligatorSports.org editor Adam Daniel Pincus, who is, uh, himself. Boom! Roasted.

The second-year starter averages 270 total yards per game. Every week weve been facing pretty much a quarterback that can run and is physical, can step up in the pocket and take hits, linebacker Jon Bostic said. This will be no different. Since losing to N.C. State in Raleigh, N.C., on Oct. 6, the Seminoles have averaged 40.2 points per game. While the Seminoles offense has recovered since the early season loss, the Gators offense has been stuck in a rut. Florida takes pride in sustaining long drives but has converted eight of 38 third-down tries the past three games. We have to play our best game against FSU, Brissett said. We have to be sharper in the red zone. Saturday marks the 57th meeting between Florida and FSU. Muschamp isnt interested in speculating on who will take the snaps at Doak Campbell Stadium. Hes focused on developing a game plan, no matter who Floridas quarterback is. I met with the offensive staff [Monday] morning about ... the things were going to need to do in the game to be successful, Muschamp said. Well detail that as the week goes.
