Floridas fate was in another teams hands, but coach Will Muschamp soaked and dripping with Gatorade still found plenty to be happy about. Only one year removed from questioning the Gators toughness, Muschamp watched his team play the 13th-ranked Seminoles off It was a really sexy win, Muschamp said. I was going to come in here with my shirt off, but my wife and the players did not want me to do that. Floridas 37-26 win against Florida State (10-2, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) was more than simply revenge. The victory was the Gators 11th despite facing one of the nations toughest schedules.

Search consultant Jan Greenwood tential candidates who could take over once current UF President Bernie Machen steps down. As of Nov. 7, there were 19 applicants for the position. Two have since dropped out, said Dianna Morgan, chairwoman of the Marketing and Communications Subcommittee. Greenwood estimated that one to three people would apply in the eleventh hour. Jamie Lewis Keith, vice president and general counsel, said the top three themes in the interview questions were the student experience and balance of academics, vision for UF becoming a top 10 public research university, and vision for meeting budget challenges. Campus Interview Subcommittee chair Scott Nygren said each candidate will participate in faculty and open forums, where he or she will give a speech, answer questions and meet attendees. Nygren said the open forum, which is targeted primarily at students, staff and Gainesville community members, will likely have an RSVP policy due to its size.

Nickerson said it allows students to enroll in classes with some prior knowledge of what theyre getting into. When ISIS Registration Helper users are on ISIS looking up a section, they can right-click, press Add professor names, and a column will appear with names and links. Nickerson recently posted the extension on Reddit, and since then, he estimates about 200 people have downloaded it. Nickerson said the extension is safe for users, and it cannot track their information. The source code is provided on his instructional web page.

Ive been programming for years and years, so its not too complex, he said. together. Jackie Lopez, a 20-year-old French junior, said students often get frustrated with ISIS during registration time because they are trying to get the best professors. Finding them sometimes involves too much research, she said. Lopez said she rarely spends time on ISIS during the semester, but during registration, she uses it at least twice a day. Lopez said she does not want to end up dropping a class because she did not get her preferred professor. All I want to do is get my schedule, she said. But biology junior Corinne Fuchs, 20, said she does not mind the time it takes to coordinate her professors and course information. Im technically inclined, so it doesnt bother me, she said. All [the extension] does is eliminate one step. rect combination of classes for a semester. She said multiple tabs on ISIS would make registration easier. As for Nickersons extension, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said anything that helps students choose a course can be tions students complete at the end of every semester provide information thats probably more concrete and usable, he said. If I were a student looking at some of those rate my professors entries, Orlando said, I think I would probably take it with a little bit of a grain of salt.

NICOLE ZAKRZEWSKIAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Historical Preservation Program purchased a FARO Focus3D laser scanner earlier this month to document sites throughout the country, preserving 3D scans of any location. Its goal is to focus on the documentation, preservation and management of cultural heritage, according to a program proposal. The scanner was paid for through grants and donations to the Historical Preservation Program, totaling $100,000, said Morris Hylton III, director of historic preservation at UF. The FARO Focus3D is a three-dimensional laser scanner that creates photorealistic plans, sections, elevations and Historic American Building Survey-quality line drawings. The rate measurement of sites and their surroundings, both interiors and exteriors, according to the proposal. The laser technology has been around for years, primarily for land surveying, but it has improved draHylton said. According to the FARO website, the scanner works by collecting points in space captured by a laser beam that ters. It then creates a 3D virtual model that documents the structures design and existing conditions. In the spring, the FARO scanner will be used in a preservation project, Envision: MiMo, about the conditions of midcentury modern Miami sites such as the former Bacardi Headquar ters and the Miami Marine Stadium, according to the project proposal. Eventually, the products can become part of the Envision Heritage database, where multiple scans of sites can be stored in one location, allowing people to experience them without actually visiting. The scanner is used for 3D building documentation, construction super vision, reverse engineering, historic preservation and even interior design, according to the FARO website. In interior design, we not only look at the design of the room but how people actually inhabit the space, Hylton said. The FARO Focus3D assigns distance to the surface objects by calculatof the laser in relation to the known speed of light. As it scans, it collects between 122,000 to 976,000 points a second, depending on the resolution of the selected scan, according to the FARO website. scanner is that it is both accurate and fast, said Brian Shea, 26, a graduate research assistant working on masters degrees in historic preservation and urban regional planning. With the scanner, one room can be documented in mere minutes, rather than documenting by hand, which could take hours. The FARO laser scanner has been ordered and it is set to arrive at UF in December. It will then be used by the College of Design, Construction and Planning.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5Alex M. Sanchez / AlligatorThe Southwest 13th Street overpass was delayed due to erosion from Tropical Storm Debby. Its set to open soon. MARISA ROSSAlligator Contributing WriterThe pedestrian overpass on Southwest 13th Street remains closed, and some city cyclists are frustrated. The construction project for the twisted structure, which resembles a double helix, began in March in the College Park and University Heights areas. It was supposed to be open for use earlier this fall, but unexpected weather conditions delayed the construction. Laura Rawson, a city communications assistant, wrote that Tropical Storm Debby set back opening plans. She wrote in an email the storm caused some erosion, but the railroad bridge turned pathway is expected to be ready in December. One Gainesville resident said he feels cyclists are more likely to get into accidents because of the bridges impediment. Whenever a bicyclist has to share the road with cars, there is a greater chance of the bicyclist being hurt, wrote Terry Rickey, a 57-year-old Gainesville cyclist, via email. Ive talked with several people about [this], and everyone is in agreement that this is a terrible intersection to negotiate when traveling east to west. He said he originally saw signs near the bridge that stated the opening was set for September, but there are currently no signs with information. Since then, Rickey said he spoke to various workers, but he said he was told different dates and has not the path will be usable. Rickey bikes to Shands at UF from home and said he saw an accident near the bridge and Archer Road when he was waiting to cross the street in mid-November. A cyclist was on the sidewalk going downhill, he said, when a woman in a Chevrolet TrailBlazer pulled into the crosswalk to make a right turn on red. The bicyclist turned into the intersection and slammed into the front of the vehicle. Rickey said before he hit the ground. I cant help but to think that if the overhead pass had been open, this accident would never have happened, he said.Opening of pedestrian, bicycle path delayed, leaving walkers, cyclists irked THE VAN WILL BE AVAILABLE TO SNAP NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Nov. 15, a demonstration was held on Turlington Plaza titled UF Stands With Israel. Does UF really stand with Israel? Does UF stand for ethnic cleansing, colonialism, apartheid, occupation and the killing of innocent civilians via the state terrorism of the Israel Defense Forces/Israel? UF Hillel, Zionist Gators and others may stand for Israel, but I would appreciate if they didnt speak for the entire university. Those who were on Turlington claimed they were pro-peace, but many of those same people refuse to acknowledge that Gaza is an open-air prison where the Israeli government dictates calorie intake in order to ensure the citizens have only enough to get by. Those same people dont see a problem with the settlements in the West Bank, which are widely interpreted (from the Fourth Geneva Convention) as illegal. Living in a society that is overwhelmingly Zionist can easily become discouraging, and at times, it can make me wonder if Im insane. But, the fact is, this interpret. Its clear whats right and whats wrong, and to keep that conviction is essential to moving toward justice. When Im at home reading articles or watching live streams, looking at images of mutilated bodies in Gaza and Palestinian babies killed, emotions run high. It is shocking to me that something like this can be allowed to go on. Then, to come to campus and see massive amounts of students rallying in support of Israel is just a slap in the face. Its bad enough to know something like this is happening, but to feel completely surrounded by people who encourage it is sickening. At the end of the day, though, I know I am right. I know where I stand. I know there are hundreds of thousands of people who stand with me. Being distant from the struggle can be isolating, but to know that there are people out there putting their lives on the line to make sure Israels war crimes do not go unnoticed is inspiring. There are mass protests in almost every country, every state and almost every city in America. Even at UF, there are students who know what is just and demand the rest of the world recognizes it, too. The Gator Nation cant be seen as a community that condones collective punishment, apartheid or murder. Gaza must know it is not alone in this battle and the rest of the world does stand behind it. We do not stand in isolation, we stand topropaganda and the racism. Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law.Nelson Mandela Eric Brown and Farah Khan are lead organizers with Students for a Democratic Society at UF.The university doesnt stand with IsraelGuest columnEric Brown & Farah KhanSpeaking Out tween Israel and Hamas went into effect on Wednesday. Today, after more than seven years of Israels withdrawal from Gaza in exchange for peace, we stand ganization on the United States State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. In the past 12 years, more than 12,000 rockets have been from Gaza into Israel. In the past few days, more than 1,000 rockets have been I propose a simple question with a complex answer: When is it enough? On Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the United States. Within days and with overwhelming support, the United States government declared the War on Terror. further terror to guarantee the safety and protection of its citizens. Why is Israel held to a different standard? Hamas, labeled a terrorist organization by the United last week, as they have done historically. This is unequivocally an act of terror by a terrorist or ganization. To clarify media misconceptions, the current situation between Gaza and Israel is not a matter of the Israeli govincreased terrorist activity, spurred by Hamas and backed by Iran, the worlds largest state sponsor of terror, onto the citizens of Israel. There is no moral symmetry; there is no moral equivalence, between Israel and the terrorist organizations in Gaza, said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Hamas has made it clear through its charter that its main goal is the destruction of the people and the state of Israel by any means necessary. The terrorists are committing a double-war crime. ian civilians, said Netanyahu. The Israeli Defense Forces strategically targets infrastructure, including weapons stockpiles, in Gaza and has taken extraordinary steps to minimize Palestinian casualties. The Israeli Defense Forces go as far as to send out thounals, warning civilians to leave Hamas areas. electricity and medical supplies into Gaza. Israel, as a sovereign nation, has every right to protect itself from Hamas, a terrorist organization, just like the U.S. had every right to protect itself from Al Qaeda, a terrorist organization, 11 years ago. I ask again. When is it enough? It is enough now. The terror has to stop now. The bombs have to stop now. The sirens have to stop now. We need peace now. it perfectly: Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us. I know where I stand today. I stand for peace. I stand for prosperity. I stand for security. I stand with America. I stand with our allies. I stand with Israel. I stand with Israel, today, tomorrow and always. Am Yisrael Chai. The people of Israel live.

Johnston said its unnecessary to ing out. He said that by critiquing new runners style, people risk discouraging them. Im so happy when a person goes from a non-runner to a runner, and Im hoping they get addicted to it, said Johnston.

Although it never hurts to get pointers, Farina and motivation is the key ingredient. I think thats the bigger question: What do we have to do to get people motivated to run? Farina said.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG After missing four games due to multiple concussions, Casey Prather returned in UFs 79-66 win against UCF. See story, page 15. Poll Question Does Florida deserve to play in the BCS title game ahead of the SEC champion? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. David Carr / Alligator Staff Running back Mike Gillislee runs with the ball during UFs 37-26 win against Florida State on Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee. GILLISLEE BECAME FLORIDAS FIRST 1,000-YARD RUSHER SINCE CIATRICK FASON RAN FOR 1,326 YARDS IN 2004. ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE Will Muschamp called his team soft last season after UF closed out a dismal year with an embarrassing home loss to Florida State. There was nothing soft about the Gators on Saturday night. While run-heavy Florida started the game UF punished Florida State with bruising runs from backs Mike Gillislee and Matt Jones. The duo combined for 221 rushing yards against the nations then top-ranked rushing defense. They havent seen anybody with the line that we have the way [we] run block, quarterback Jeff Driskel said of Florida State. They havent seen as much depth as we have at running back. Were going to run hard, and our running backs, when they get a crease, theyre going to make somebody miss, and they did that. We knew we were going to be able to run the ball. That was never an issue. Gillislee eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark with game this season. yards since Ciatrick Fason gained 1,326 yards in 2004. Gillislees 140 yards are more than Florida State had allowed to any team this season. The Seminoles entered the game allowing 70.6 rushI always knew Mike could do that, wide receiver Quinton Dunbar said of Gillislees season total. He was just waiting for his chance. Now that hes got his chance, hes taking (advantage of) his opportunity. With 11:01 remaining in the fourth quarter, Gillislee scampered untouched off left tackle for 37 yards and the last of his two touchdowns. The go-ahead score put Florida up 23-20. The offensive line did a great job of blocking, and I saw all I needed was a good seam, Gillislee said. I saw it, and I just hit it touchdown. After suffering a rib injury on the next series, the senior gave way to the freshman Jones. Jones added a career-high 81 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Six teams this season have posted fewer than 81 rushing yards against Florida State. As the Gators have all season, they wore down the opponents defensive line. Florida rushed for Running back hits milestone, carries Florida to victory SEE GILLISLEE, PAGE 14 JOSH JURNOVOY Alligator Staff Writer TALLAHASSEE Florida remained ranked at No. 4 in the BCS standings on Sunday night. UF is behind No. 1 Notre Dame, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia. The Gators will likely move up to No. 3, overtaking the loser of the Southeastern Conference Championship Game between the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs. According to the BCS selection procedures, the third-ranked team receives an at-large bid to a BCS bowl if no other atplay in the national championship. Notre Dame will likely play the winner of the SEC title game in the BCS Championship Game, leaving UF as the highest-ranked atlarge SEC team. The Sugar Bowl, which has hosted an SEC at-large team all but once since the introduction of the BCS National Championship Game in 2007, appears to be the Gators likely destination. Roberson on returns: With Florida clinging to a three-point lead, cornerback Marcus Roberson gave the Gators the type of boost they have rarely had this season a big punt return. Florida State punter Cason Beatty booted a season-long 54-yard punt to Floridas 18-yard line with the Seminoles trailing 2320 in the fourth quarter. the punt, picked up a pair of blockers and sprinted down the left sideline for a gain of 50 yards to the FSU 32-yard line. Five plays Gators remain at No. 4 in latest BCS standings END OF GREGULATION TALLAHASSEEJames Wilson and D.J. Humphries stalked up and down UFs sideline, preparing the Gatorade cooler for off the clock on Saturday in Tallahassee. In a scene usually reserved for championships, the two offensive linemen waited for a window of opportunity to give coach Will Muschamp his celebratory bath. With 15 second remaining, Wilson opening, splashing Muschamp square in the back with the cooler of purple. Floridas coach let out a few claps, national title. That was the most excited weve been in a while, center Jonotthan Harrison said. Weve worked so hard to get what weve earned. Im proud of the team. Later that night, Notre Dame beat USC 22-13 to ensure that UF wont play for the BCS championship. The Gators arent even going to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game. But this is a team of champions. After a year of slow starts and near disasters, Florida looked like a championship program on Saturday. The regular season in school history with their best performance of 2012 in a 3726 win against rival Florida State. That was a culmination of our football season, Muschamp said. That football team showed you their resolve their togetherness, and Im very proud to be a part of them. Regardless of what happens in the UF should be proud of Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca SEE GREG, PAGE 14 SEE NOTES, PAGE 14 The offensive line did a great job of blocking, and I saw all I needed was a good seam.

later, quarterback Jeff Driskel connected with Quinton Dunbar on a 14-yard touchdown pass to put the Gators up 30-20. Coach gave me a chance, and I appreciate that, Roberson said. We always catch punts through practice. I was just lucky enough and had great blocking on the play. That was big for us. With both Andre Debose and DeAnte Saunders nursing injuries, Roberson has taken over punt return duties. He returned a punt for 31 yards in Floridas win against Jacksonville State on Nov. 17, and his return against Flor ida State was the Gators longest punt return of the season and their longest punt or kick return since Deboses 60yard kick return against Vanderbilt on Oct. 13. The punt return was also the longest for the Gators since Brandon James returned one 78 yards for a touchdown against Tennessee in 2008. Despite the magnitude of the play, Roberson downplayed it after the game. I feel like everybody is able to make plays, and I was just lucky enough to have my chance, he said. Sturgis sets record: With a 45-yard leb Sturgis earned a spot in the record books, surpassing Jeff Chandlers UF opening drive tied the record. He now Purifoy plays both ways: Loucheiz Purifoy started at both cornerback and running back on Saturday, becoming the ball since Keiwan Ratliff started at both cornerback and wide receiver on Nov. 30, 2002 against Florida State. Purifoy had one carry for eight yards on offense on Saturday and added six tackles and a forced fumble on defense. Injuries: Jelani Jenkins streak of bad luck continued on Saturday night. The junior linebacker left the game in the third quarter with an injury to his right foot. Jenkins was on crutches and wearing a walking boot when he spoke to the media after the game. I dont really know his status, Muschamp said of Jenkins. But it doesnt look good. Jenkins missed three games ear lier this season due to a fractured right thumb and a hamstring injury. He expressed uncertainty as to the severity of his foot injury. Im not sure exactly what yet, Jenkins said. Its kind of sore right now. Freshman Antonio Morrison stepped in for Jenkins and forced a fumble that led to a 37-yard touchdown run from Mike Gillislee on the ensuing possession. yards rushing and two touchdowns, left the game on Floridas second-tolast offensive possession after suffering a rib injury. Muschamp said after the game that the injury was not serious. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@ alligator.org. Sugar Bowl, UFs season is already a massive success. A team that entered the year with a soft reputation and a fringe top-25 ranking is now solidly No. 5 in the nation. Weve had a fantastic year, Muschamp said. We have made tremendous progress. The Gators got there by taking on Muschamps hard-nosed personality and philosophy. Florida won the turnover battle, showed resiliency by taking control in the fourth quarter, pounded the ball in the running game and played tough, physical football. Its a full buy-in, from administration all the way down, Muschamp said. Part of that process is always pushing for more. Muschamp insisted after the game less of the accomplishments of one of the most overachieving teams in the nation and in school history. We havent won a championship, Muschamp said. Until you win a championship, I have a hard time saying weve arrived and were back at all. But the time for championships will come. Muschamp and Florida have laid a foundation on which greatness can be built. Doing so required a major rebuilding process. Two years ago, coach Ur ban Meyer said Florida was broken. Last season, Muschamp called the Gators soft. Those memories propelled UFs players to right the ship. We had a lot of hurt in our heart, wideout Quinton Dunbar said. Dominique Easley said earlier this season that he watched the defensive tape from last seasons losses on loop. [Florida State] had to feel the same pain that we felt, Easley said. that pain, purging their own in the move forward. No one will remember how UF played down to its competition in wins against Bowling Green, Missouri, Louisiana and Jacksonville State. Instead, the lasting image will be Muschamp soaked in purple with his arms raised above his head in celebration on the sidelines of Doak Campbell Stadium the image of Florida getting back on top.

Especially at a time like this when we really had to beat Florida State to continue and hopefully (make) the national championship at the end. With No. 1 Notre Dame defeating USC late Saturday night, Florida is likely heading to the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2. The transformation from a soft, barely bowlning the line of scrimmage has not been quick or easy. Weve worked so hard from January until now, Harrison said.

FLORIDA LOST 74-58 TO ARIZONA STATE ON SUNDAY IN LAS VEGAS. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writer Through two games in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout, Carlie Needles and Florida feasted on the competition. On Sunday, the Gators were left feeling like turkeys. Plagued by poor shooting and an inconsistent effort on the defensive end of the court, Florida (5-2) losing 74-58 to Arizona State (2-3) on Sunday. After shooting 48.8 percent from and Northern Iowa to begin the weekend, UF was limited to just 30.6-percent shooting in the loss. Floridas defense, usually the teams strength, allowed Arizona State to shoot 58.2 percent in the win. Arizona State came to play, coach Amanda Butler said. Right from the [start], they established who the more dominant team was. We fell in line with that, unfortunately. After trailing by a double-digit margin for most of the game, Florida used a 9-2 run in the second half to pull within 45-37 with 12:52 remaining. Poor shooting undermined UFs attempt to get any closer. We were getting the right shots, ishing them. That was a big part of our loss today. Needles was held to just eight points and made only 1 of 5 attempts from behind the arc. Jennifer George and Jaterra Bonds led Florida offensively, as each scored 11 points in the loss. But the pair needed 24 shots to score the 22 combined points. We werent really trying to get to the line, Butler said. [Arizona State] was doing a great job of stopping our dribble penetration. Were always trying to attack the paint and attack it with the pass, but we For Butler, UFs inability to make shots was less irritating than its lack of commitment on the defensive end Arizona States Janae Fulcher led all scorers with 26 points in 20 minutes. Fulcher helped the Sun Devils outscore the Gators 50-24 in the paint. We made a lot of critical errors, and most of them were defensive, Butler said. The loss concludes a brutal stretch for the Gators, who played three games in as many days and four games in seven days. Florida went 3-1 during that stretch. Butler downplayed the effect fatigue had on her team. We have no excuses, because Arizona State played two very close games preceding this, Butler said. Im not sure if it was mental fatigue or poor preparation on our part. I felt like we were ready to play, but we certainly did not come out that way. Needles said the three games will help the inexperienced Gators prepare for the rest of the season. Florida does not play again until Saturday, when it travels to Michigan. We just cant let other teams dictate our game tempo, Needles said. When we dictate, thats when games go our way. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Writer After sustaining two concussions during the preseason, Casey Prather tasted blood less than a minute into his season debut. Prather took a blow to the jaw as UCF guard Isaiah Sykes drove to the basket. During the collision, one of Prathers teeth punctured his lower lip. The junior forward exited the game about a minute later and headed to the locker room to have the gash stitched up. There was no doubt in my mind, I wanted to keep playing, Prather said. Wearing a bandage under his lip to cover the stitches, Prather returned to the game with 14:46 remaining and notched eight points as No. 7 Florida held off UCF for a 79-66 victory on Friday afternoon in the OConnell Center. Its like one thing after another with this guy, coach Billy Donovan said. I feel terrible for him, because if theres anybody who deserves to be on the was able to come back in, play and per form. In 13 minutes against the Knights, Prather was 3-of-3 shooting and made both of his free throws. He also grabbed four boards and recorded a block. During turnover in the full-court press. The 6-foot-6 juniors most dynamic scoring play occurred with 3:36 left in the contest. After receiving a feed from junior point guard Scottie Wilbekin, Prather drove down the base line and dunk to put the Gators up by 20. Thats what we love him for, Wilbekin said. He gets the whole team excited when he does stuff like that. Prather was hungry to return on Friday after a pair of concussions disrupted ing a scrimmage against Rollins College on Oct. 27. His second head injury occurred when junior center Patric Young elbowed him during a rebound attempt in practice on Nov. 5. The second one just frustrated me even more, Prather said. The season was just around the corner when it happened, so I was pretty upset. My teammates and my coaches, they kind of helped me go through it. They were just like, Be patient. Its better it happen now than later in the middle of the season. Prather struggled to avoid turnovers and averaged only two points in 9.5 minutes per game last season, but he excelled in the postseason. The forward round of NCAA Tournament on March 16, scoring 14 points and grabbing four rebounds in the Gators 71-45 victory against the Cavaliers. With Prathers return and Wilbekin back from a three-game suspension, Donovan has a deeper rotation and more energy off the bench. [Prather] provides intensity, senior guard Kenny Boynton said.
