4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 Red Robin will open its 12th Florida location at The Oaks Mall in spring 2013. The restaurant will be between Ruby Tuesday and Coldwater Creek. Employees are usually hired about them to The Oaks Mall. Jamie Winter, communications manager for Red Robin, said in an email interview that the restaurant has a great relationship with the owner of The Oaks Mall, General Growth Properties. When there was an opening at the mall, she said, Red Robin was sought out as a Nora Jones, a 19-year-old anthropology sophomore, said she has only been to The Oaks Mall a couple of times in the year shes lived in Gainesville, but shes interested in going there to try Red Robin in the spring. Ive heard they have good food, she said. My brother went to one in Tennessee, and he has been talking about going back ever since. Winter said employees are usually hired We are very excited about coming into Gainesville, and we think it will be a perfect said. And who doesnt love a burger and fries?

NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterC.J. Shaw has always been seen as the kid among the retirees. But with nine years of experience in barbershop-style singing, age is only a number for Shaw. The 25-year-old may look out of place when he practices singing with some men old enough to be his capella harmony. Age doesnt have anything to do with barbershop, Shaw said at the Gainesville Barbergators open house event last month. Its how well you sing with your quartet. Shaw, a Santa Fe College music freshman, is one of the 35 members of the Gainesville Barbergators, the local chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an all-male international organization that practices a capella singing. Shaw began singing when he joined a concert choir in elementary school. He later became part of The Heart of Florida Barbershop Chorus and the One Voice Chorus, and he has competed internationally. I was the chorus geek of middle school and high school, he said. He heard about the Gainesville chapter from a friend after he moved to Gainesville about six months ago. I never wanted to leave them again, Shaw said. The Gainesville Barbergators also form locally and compete against other chapters. The quartets meet weekly to practice and are usually formed by the members themselves, said Dick Moyer, president of the Gainesville Barbergators. Barbershop-quartet singing consists of four parts including tenor, lead, bass and baritone, Moyer said. Your voices make the instruments, he said. He normally sings the lead part. I dont feel out-of-sync with these guys, Shaw said. I feel like we are a big family of singers. Shaw said his favorite experience with the Gainesville Barbergators was when they visited a nursing home and performed in orange jackets and blue ties. I just sang my heart out like we do here in the rehearsals, he said. Moyer said he most enjoys the social aspect of being a member. Theres a very interesting collection of guys, he said. Theres all walks of life here. UF alumnus Dave Jacobs has been the musical director of Gainesville Bar bergators for about six years. My best friends are the people I sing with, he said. Guys from this chorus sang at my wedding. 1984, when he was a sophomore at UF. He said he mostly enjoys Valentines Day, when his quartet sings to sweethearts upon request. Shaw said he hopes to one day follows in Jacobs footsteps and become a music director. I want to stand in front of people and direct and interpret music to fellow men, he said. He plans to stay involved in Barber gators as long as he lives in Gainesville. Until the day that I cant sing, Im going to keep paying my dues to stay as a barbershopper, Shaw said. Gainesville group just needs a couple of guys and a song

Read a story about the One Million Bones project at alligator.org. LAST YEAR 25 TO 50 WRITERS PARTICIPATED AT UF. CARINA SEAGRAVEAlligator Contributing WriterChristina Montana has slept a total of nine to blame. Montana, 20, spent the past month with her laptop and the occasional bag of chocolate Twizzlers writing a total of 50,000 words about 175 pages for National Novel Writing Month, which happens every November. I told my roommates not to let me do it this year, but I was waiting for my Italian class to start, and I saw a guy staring at a girl and wondered if he actually liked her without knowing her, said the UF junior majoring in English and specializing in creative writing. That was my inspiration. Chase who made eye contact with a woman in a bookstore, felt a connection and returned every day in hopes of seeing her again. She completed her novel late Tuesday, making it the third consecutive year she has won NaNoWriMo. The best part about doing it in the middle of all my schoolwork is thinking, Aw, college Each area that participates in the event has a municipal liaison who hosts write-ins, which allows participants to come together for encouragement and support amid writing challenges, Montana said. UF assistant librarian and former co-municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo Stacey Ewing said 25 to 50 writers participated in the UFsponsored write-ins last year. This year, Gainesville had no liaison, but students and community members found a way to participate through the local NaNoW riMo Facebook page. People attended writeins at Coffee Culture, Ewing said. Write-ins were also held by the Alachua County Library, said Alachua County eBranch librarian Gail Carr. The library group met each Tuesday this month at the downtown Alachua branch. We all chatted just a bit at the beginning and during a couple of breaks, but mostly we just pounded away on our laptops while still enjoying being in the company of other writers, Carr said, adding that she hopes for a better turnout next year. In order to stay on top of her word count on her own this year, Montana wrote 10,000word installments, which she called cushnovel early, but other writers are still dealing with the 11:59:59 p.m. Friday deadline. But even though she completed a novel, starting an essay. National Novel Writing Month leaves local writers on their own

Read the stories at Alligator.org/the_avenue Online exclusives at Alligator.org/the_avenue: www.Facebook.com/ ROSA LLAMOIt started with four co-founders, a full email inbox and one garage. David Argov, Alexza Morales, Heather ORourke and Aly Perez, UF advertising seniors, started Garage Agency & Co., an advertising agency, from Argovs garage. Every business has humble beginnings. They start at a dorm, a room in a house or in a garage, said Argov, the companys account dude. Garage Agency & Co., which ofon smalland medium-sized local businesses and student-run organizations. It also does digital work for businesses outside Gainesville, Argov said. The startup currently serves about 11 clients. Clients include local restaurant Tasty Buddha, UFs Ad Society and Squeezed, a website that informs people about healthy juicing lifestyles. The company also does work for Peaceful Paths, including creating business cards for people overcoming domestic abuse. The companys strategy ninja, Morales, said the four decided to start the agency when Argov and ORourke approached Morales, who felt ready to handle her own business after several advertising internships, and Perez, who saw a need for local advertising. Argov said he felt prepared to start the business after bagging an internship with the CementBloc, a multichannel creative agency in New York City, and working as an account director for AdWerks, UFs Ad Societys student-run advertising agency. Before starting the business, the founders met with William J. Rossi, a UF professor of entrepreneurship and associate director for GatorNest. He gave us the best advice that we could have possibly gotten, Argov said. He basically said, Just go, and do it. So they did it. After better understanding the logistics taxes, costs and competition the group met about once a week dur ing the summer to create the company from scratch, he said. Argov said Garage Agency & Co. is a an agency for creative advertising. The startup is also a valued alternative to existing advertising agencies. Its all about understanding what the client wants and understanding the target audience, said ORourke, the agencys marketing wiz. Tie that in with an eye for design, and youve got Garage. Garage Agency & Co.s owners are part of a growing trend of college students who create companies, Rossi said. More students are interested in starting businesses, and more students who start businesses are successful at it, he said. Rossi said the number of students in his Introduction to Entrepreneurship course increased, and about 30 percent of the students arent business majors. Startup Hour, a monthly event in Gainesville that brings student and graduate entrepreneurs together, increased from about 50 to about 150 attendees since it began in 2010, he said. This trend is fueled by the Internet, which makes creating a company easier, faster and cheaper, as well as by the lack of traditional jobs, Rossi said. Students who have an interest in starting a business have less to lose today, he said. Jordan Meyer, director of communications and marketing for the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, said the growing number of student entrepreneurs contribute to the amount and success of local businesses. Argov said he isnt worried about the Co. The agency is an opportunity to test his skills and challenge himself before he enters the workforce, he said. You need to do something to get real-life experiences, he said. Your curriculum just isnt enough anymore.THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUECourtesy to the Alligator / David ParraThe co-founders of Garage Agency & Co., Aly Perez, Heather ORourke, David Argov and Alexza Morales, meet once a week in Argovs garage.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, Why follow a trend? You should do what you feel comfortable doing to your body because youre the one dealing with it every day. I dont think there is a trend anymore. Now, everyone has her own preference. Some girls like to keep a Rapunzel braid in their knickers, and some girls like the bare look. Your friends and the sexpert you follow are wrong, but the guy youre hooking up with is right. Being a 10-year-old girl is what makes one look like a 10-year-old girl, not shaving your private parts. Throwing out your razor doesnt make you any more of a classy adult woman. The amount of hair one keeps Do whatever is easiest and best for you. What I do to my choices I make down there and you shouldnt either. Dear Friend, I think threesomes are unnecessary and pointless. Im greedy, and I hate sharing, so I dont understand why anyone would want to share someone in bed. No, you cannot have the other half of my sandwich, and no, you cannot have the bottom part of the man under my sheets. I cant believe there has ever been a threesome that wasnt horribly awkward at some point. Its too much work for too little reward. You have to set rules with the people involved, and most of the to do it. The only reason this ridiculousness is a craze is because people love to say they did something adventurous. Threesomes are like skydiving. There is no point to jump out of a plane unless youre going to tell everyone and make the photo of yourself 2,000 feet above ground close to crapping yourself your plane is the day Im on an aircraft that is about to explode and thats more likely to happen to me than a threesome. Dear Mediocre Advice, What are your feelings on threesomes? Dear Friend, I agree. Relationships are overrated because most people just dont want to be lonely. People need to learn how to be alone before they can be with someone else. Lack of commitment is not only within our culture, it is a widespread pandemic. I think it has to do with the fact that everyone is turning into bigger a--holes, but I may be wrong. Relationships should be underrated. One should give less of a s--t about a potential romance unless it knocks his or her socks off. Freedom and variety, which sounds like a recipe for a one-night stand, are great, but those things are worth dropping when someone better comes around. People should stop wasting so much time on a--holes or those who are only around because being lonesome is worse. Find the people that matter. Dear Mediocre Advice, Relationships are overrated, and I think our culture is progressively adopting lost interest in committing to one another. I dont know about you, but I like freedom and variety. Agree or disagree, but please substantiate your claim. Dear Mediocre Advice, I started shaving my hoo-hoo in high school because my lady friends all said I should. I thought this was the norm, but today a blogger and self-proclaimed sexpert I follow wrote that classy adult women dont shave. To make matters more confusing, now a lot of my female friends say they dont shave because they dont like to look like 10-year-olds, and the guy Im hooking up with says its unnecessary. When did the trend change? What do I do? What do you do? Dear Mediocre Advice, This guy I talk to told me that he likes me, but when we are alone, he never makes a move. Its annoying. What do I do? Dear Friend, Why are you waiting for him to make the move? Im sure youre sick of holding hands by now. The next time you two are alone, dont wait just go in and kiss him. There are many reasons Catholic parents taught him that kissing and fornication are sins. For your sake, I hope its not No. 3. But whenever you think the time is right, you should do something.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Coach Roland Thornqvist and the UF tennis programs will begin playing in a new indoor facility in December. See story, page 16. Georgetown game will not resumeFlorida and Georgetown will not play the second half of their suspended season opener because the two sides could not agree on a date, a Georgetown spokesperson told ESPN on Wednesday.Tymrak up for national award for the 2012 Missouri Athletic Clubs Hermann Trophy, which is given to the NCAAs top soccer player. Sugar never tasted so bittersweet. No. 5 Florida is all but assured an appearance in its ninth Sugar Bowl, as two key decisions by coach Will Muschamp returned a broken program to national title contention. Muschamp, his 10 assistants and countless others involved behind the scenes deserve much of the credit. The players earned the victories, but the coaches made a difference tween jubilation and heartbreak. Floridas success is largely due to Muschamp picking Jeff Driskel to quarterback a mundane offense built around the running game. UF entered the year with questions surrounding every offensive position. No quandary was more polarizing than who would take the snaps under center. Throughout the offseason, nobody mentioned one quarterback without talking about the other. ing both of them against Bowling Green in the season opener. Having two starting quarterbacks wasnt going to work for a team searching for an identity. The coaching staff recognized which player gave UF the best chance to win. With an unproven offensive line, a mobile Driskel made the most sense. Muschamp knew the Gators werent the sexiest team in America. He just wanted wins. Naming Driskel the starter established Floridas M.O. as a physical football team. Although the Gators turned into Americas most boring offense midway through the season, Muschamp LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer For the Gators, this seasons walk. opponents by an average margin of 23.8 points and is second in the country in scoring defense, allowing only 48.4 points per game. The Gators smothered thenNo. 22 Wisconsin, outmuscled Middle Tennessee and outhustled UCF. Either were just playing at a high level right now, or I guess other teams havent been able to match our intensity and energy, junior center Patric Young said. We havent had to face much adversity in the games that weve played. No. 7 Florida could see its squares off against Marquette (51) in the OConnell Center for a rematch of last years Sweet 16. The contest kicks off a difthat features road games against Florida State on Dec. 5 and No. 9 Arizona on Dec. 15. out a lot more about ourselves, coach Billy Donovan said. Clearly, as it relates to maybe most schools across the country, I think ours has got to be one of the more challenging non-conference schedules. In last years NCAA Tournament, the Gators defeated the Golden Eagles 68-58 to advance to the Elite Eight. In 2011-12, then-seniors Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder scored 46.9 percent of Marquettes points as the Golden East. UF also lost two key players since last season. Starting point guard Erving Walker graduated, and guard Brad Beal bolted for the NBA Draft and was selected No. 3 overall by the Washington Wizards. Both of us have new faces on our teams, senior guard Kenny Boynton said. Theyve lost their two primary scorers, but now theyre more of a balanced team. Added Donovan: Their team kind of went as Crowder and [Johnson-Odom] went, and those ly have the potential to be better than they were a year ago. Marquettes only loss this season was a 72-71 defeat to Butler at the Maui Invitational, when guard Rotnei Clarke shocked the Golden Eagles with a desperation three-point heave that beat the buzzer. Florida and Marquette are both deep and balanced. Six Golden Eagles average at least seven points per game. Juniors and leading scorers Davante Gardner, Vander Blue and Jamil Wilson are Marquettes top talents. With junior point guard Scottie Wilbekin (suspension) and junior forward Casey Prather (multiple concussions) back in the mix, UFs rotation is 11 players deep. Its going to be anybodys night for our team, Young said. Thats how balanced I think we are. Scotties coming off the bench, knocking down a lot of shots. Youve got Casey, who can affect the game with his athleticism and his energy. If lineups switch up however they do, guys off the bench are going to be ready to step in and just pick up the slack. Florida center Patric Young (4) dunks the ball during an 84-35 win against Alabama State on Nov. 11 at the OConnell Center. Young scored 12 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the victory. Gators to be tested after easy start PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Writer The Gators have struggled from three-point range this season. But, much to the chagrin of coach Amanda Butler, that hasnt stopped them from trying. Through seven games, Florida is 33 of 130 (25.4 percent) from three-point range, attempting nearly 19 shots per game. Aside from Carlie Needles, who has made 19 of her 47 attempts, the Gators are shooting 16.9 percent. Weve got to be a little bit more judicious and have a little bit more discernment in our shot selection, Butler said. If youre settling for a three, then youve got to look at that a little bit closer and make a good decision. the ball inside more often. In Floridas 74-58 loss to Arizona State on Sunday, the Sun Devils outscored the Gators 50-24 in the paint. UF made just 1 of 9 threepoint attempts, which continued a trend that has bothered Butler this season. Sydney (Moss) is the perfect example, Butler said. She is really hard to guard in the paint. Shes really hard to guard off the dribble. But youre not as hard to guard behind the three-point line. Senior Jennifer George plays the largest role in ensuring the offense runs as the coaching staff hopes.Florida struggling from behind arcTHE ADAM BOMB Coaching key for UF Weve got to be a little bit more judicious and have a little bit more discernment in our shot selection.Amanda ButlerUF coachUF faces Marquette at 9 Coaching key for UF twitter: @pincus_adam

George is averaging a team-leading 13.5 points per game and is the focal point of UFs low-post offense. As the lone senior, she knows her role is critical to the teams success. I need to step up, George said. I set the tone. I need to take more pride in my offense and defense down low. Needles, the only bright spot for Floridas three-point shooting this season, said Butler urged the Gators to understand that open shots are not necessarily good shots. You have to that have been making shots, Needles said. People have been playing zone to keep the ball away from Jennifer, but we need to work and stay key to what makes us successful. stuck to his guns, which is decision No. 2. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease arrived after six years at Boise State. Last year, he ran a balanced offense with a dynamic passing game. Florida has 259 pass attempts and 509 rushes this season. UFs offense is ranked No. 104 nationally, the worst for a as far back as the NCAA website lists total offense rankteam was even close was in 2003, when No. 4 Ohio State But UFs offensive formula never changed run, run and run some more. Granted, running the ball may be the only thing the Gators can do on a consistent basis. But Muschamp never once tried to turn the offense into something it isnt. UF is in good hands with Muschamp at the helm. He showed he can make decisions with conviction and follow through. The second-year coach isnt by a what if? Complacency kills, Muschamp said. You cant get complacent in what youre trying to do. Forget about what could have been. With Muschamp leading the way, the best is yet to come.

The UF Athletic Association, with funding from alum Nancy Perry, built a new indoor tennis facility. Executive associate athletic director of internal affairs Chip Howard said via email that UF built the Charles R. and Nancy V. Perry Indoor Tennis Facility so the teams could practice through the rain. Howard and Florida womens coach Roland Thornqvist considered the previous indoor facility subpar. The courts were not regulation played on them. Rain leaked onto the courts from the sides of the facility, negating its primary purpose. We hoped for a few years that we could take the old facility down because it wasnt appropriate anymore, Thornqvist said. UFs need for an indoor court was prominent because of frequent rain in Florida. Rain on hard courts like the ones at Alfred A. Ring Tennis Complex, where the Gators compete outdoors, presents safety issues. As soon as it starts raining on hard court, you have to stop, Thornqvist said. Mens coach Bryan Shelton related playing on a wet hard court to driving on wet pavement it gets slippery. You put on the brakes too hard, and all of a sudden you are sliding out and a little bit out of control, Shelton said. Thats what happens when you try to play when the courts get wet. With the new facility, the Gators can practice for indoor tournaments without driving to Gainesvilles other indoor courts. Also, Florida can now host indoor tournaments, Howard said. Both coaches appreciate the efforts of Howard, Nancy Perry and UAA. Its just the commitment that this place has to doing things the right way, Shelton said.

When there was an opening at the mall, she said, Red Robin was sought out as a Nora Jones, a 19-year-old anthropology sophomore, said she has only been to The Oaks Mall a couple of times in the year shes lived in Gainesville, but shes interested in going there to try Red Robin in the spring.

NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterC.J. Shaw has always been seen as the kid among the retirees. But with nine years of experience in barbershop-style singing, age is only a number for Shaw. The 25-year-old may look out of place when he practices singing with some men old enough to be his capella harmony. Age doesnt have anything to do with barbershop, Shaw said at the Gainesville Barbergators open house event last month. Its how well you sing with your quartet. Shaw, a Santa Fe College music freshman, is one of the 35 members of the Gainesville Barbergators, the local chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an all-male international organization that practices a capella singing. Shaw began singing when he joined a concert choir in elementary school. He later became part of The Heart of Florida Barbershop Chorus and the One Voice Chorus, and he has competed internationally. I was the chorus geek of middle school and high school, he said. He heard about the Gainesville chapter from a friend after he moved to Gainesville about six months ago. I never wanted to leave them again, Shaw said. The Gainesville Barbergators also form locally and compete against other chapters. The quartets meet weekly to practice and are usually formed by the members themselves, said Dick Moyer, president of the Gainesville Barbergators. Barbershop-quartet singing consists of four parts including tenor, lead, bass and baritone, Moyer said. Your voices make the instruments, he said. He normally sings the lead part. I dont feel out-of-sync with these guys, Shaw said. I feel like we are a big family of singers. Shaw said his favorite experience with the Gainesville Barbergators was when they visited a nursing home and performed in orange jackets and blue ties. I just sang my heart out like we do here in the rehearsals, he said. Moyer said he most enjoys the social aspect of being a member. Theres a very interesting collection of guys, he said. Theres all walks of life here. UF alumnus Dave Jacobs has been the musical director of Gainesville Bar bergators for about six years. My best friends are the people I sing with, he said. Guys from this chorus sang at my wedding. 1984, when he was a sophomore at UF. He said he mostly enjoys Valentines Day, when his quartet sings to sweethearts upon request. Shaw said he hopes to one day follows in Jacobs footsteps and become a music director. I want to stand in front of people and direct and interpret music to fellow men, he said. He plans to stay involved in Barber gators as long as he lives in Gainesville. Until the day that I cant sing, Im going to keep paying my dues to stay as a barbershopper, Shaw said.

CARINA SEAGRAVEAlligator Contributing WriterChristina Montana has slept a total of nine to blame. Montana, 20, spent the past month with her laptop and the occasional bag of chocolate Twizzlers writing a total of 50,000 words about 175 pages for National Novel Writing Month, which happens every November. I told my roommates not to let me do it this year, but I was waiting for my Italian class to start, and I saw a guy staring at a girl and wondered if he actually liked her without knowing her, said the UF junior majoring in English and specializing in creative writing. That was my inspiration. Chase who made eye contact with a woman in a bookstore, felt a connection and returned every day in hopes of seeing her again. She completed her novel late Tuesday, making it the third consecutive year she has won NaNoWriMo. The best part about doing it in the middle of all my schoolwork is thinking, Aw, college Each area that participates in the event has a municipal liaison who hosts write-ins, which allows participants to come together for encouragement and support amid writing challenges, Montana said. UF assistant librarian and former co-municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo Stacey Ewing said 25 to 50 writers participated in the UFsponsored write-ins last year. This year, Gainesville had no liaison, but students and community members found a way to participate through the local NaNoW riMo Facebook page. People attended writeins at Coffee Culture, Ewing said. Write-ins were also held by the Alachua County Library, said Alachua County eBranch librarian Gail Carr. The library group met each Tuesday this month at the downtown Alachua branch. We all chatted just a bit at the beginning and during a couple of breaks, but mostly we just pounded away on our laptops while still enjoying being in the company of other writers, Carr said, adding that she hopes for a better turnout next year. In order to stay on top of her word count on her own this year, Montana wrote 10,000word installments, which she called cushnovel early, but other writers are still dealing with the 11:59:59 p.m. Friday deadline. But even though she completed a novel, starting an essay. National Novel Writing Month leaves local writers on their own

Read the stories at Alligator.org/the_avenue Online exclusives at Alligator.org/the_avenue: www.Facebook.com/ ROSA LLAMOIt started with four co-founders, a full email inbox and one garage. David Argov, Alexza Morales, Heather ORourke and Aly Perez, UF advertising seniors, started Garage Agency & Co., an advertising agency, from Argovs garage. Every business has humble beginnings. They start at a dorm, a room in a house or in a garage, said Argov, the companys account dude. Garage Agency & Co., which ofon smalland medium-sized local businesses and student-run organizations. It also does digital work for businesses outside Gainesville, Argov said. The startup currently serves about 11 clients. Clients include local restaurant Tasty Buddha, UFs Ad Society and Squeezed, a website that informs people about healthy juicing lifestyles. The company also does work for Peaceful Paths, including creating business cards for people overcoming domestic abuse. The companys strategy ninja, Morales, said the four decided to start the agency when Argov and ORourke approached Morales, who felt ready to handle her own business after several advertising internships, and Perez, who saw a need for local advertising. Argov said he felt prepared to start the business after bagging an internship with the CementBloc, a multichannel creative agency in New York City, and working as an account director for AdWerks, UFs Ad Societys student-run advertising agency. Before starting the business, the founders met with William J. Rossi, a UF professor of entrepreneurship and associate director for GatorNest. He gave us the best advice that we could have possibly gotten, Argov said. He basically said, Just go, and do it. So they did it. After better understanding the logistics taxes, costs and competition the group met about once a week dur ing the summer to create the company from scratch, he said. Argov said Garage Agency & Co. is a an agency for creative advertising. The startup is also a valued alternative to existing advertising agencies. Its all about understanding what the client wants and understanding the target audience, said ORourke, the agencys marketing wiz. Tie that in with an eye for design, and youve got Garage. Garage Agency & Co.s owners are part of a growing trend of college students who create companies, Rossi said. More students are interested in starting businesses, and more students who start businesses are successful at it, he said. Rossi said the number of students in his Introduction to Entrepreneurship course increased, and about 30 percent of the students arent business majors. Startup Hour, a monthly event in Gainesville that brings student and graduate entrepreneurs together, increased from about 50 to about 150 attendees since it began in 2010, he said. This trend is fueled by the Internet, which makes creating a company easier, faster and cheaper, as well as by the lack of traditional jobs, Rossi said. Students who have an interest in starting a business have less to lose today, he said. Jordan Meyer, director of communications and marketing for the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, said the growing number of student entrepreneurs contribute to the amount and success of local businesses. Argov said he isnt worried about the Co. The agency is an opportunity to test his skills and challenge himself before he enters the workforce, he said. You need to do something to get real-life experiences, he said.

Vendors range from DeTiki Custom Carvings, which will offer carved wooden purses and Christmas ornaments, to Luellabird, which will sell upcycled jewelry made from vintage neckties and scarves. I take old-fashioned button jewelry and upcycle it to make it relevant to modern day fashions, said Luellabird owner Nancy McLamore, adding that she is excited to see the show because every year the producers outdo themselves. This year, the craft show has a new location in the Historic Mustang Hangar, 4701 NE 40th Ter race.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, Why follow a trend? You should do what you feel comfortable doing to your body because youre the one dealing with it every day. I dont think there is a trend anymore. Now, everyone has her own preference. Some girls like to keep a Rapunzel braid in their knickers, and some girls like the bare look. Your friends and the sexpert you follow are wrong, but the guy youre hooking up with is right. Being a 10-year-old girl is what makes one look like a 10-year-old girl, not shaving your private parts. Throwing out your razor doesnt make you any more of a classy adult woman. The amount of hair one keeps Do whatever is easiest and best for you. What I do to my choices I make down there and you shouldnt either. Dear Friend, I think threesomes are unnecessary and pointless. Im greedy, and I hate sharing, so I dont understand why anyone would want to share someone in bed. No, you cannot have the other half of my sandwich, and no, you cannot have the bottom part of the man under my sheets. I cant believe there has ever been a threesome that wasnt horribly awkward at some point. Its too much work for too little reward. You have to set rules with the people involved, and most of the to do it. The only reason this ridiculousness is a craze is because people love to say they did something adventurous. Threesomes are like skydiving. There is no point to jump out of a plane unless youre going to tell everyone and make the photo of yourself 2,000 feet above ground close to crapping yourself your plane is the day Im on an aircraft that is about to explode and thats more likely to happen to me than a threesome. Dear Mediocre Advice, What are your feelings on three somes? Dear Friend, I agree. Relationships are overrated because most people just dont want to be lonely. People need to learn how to be alone before they can be with someone else. Lack of commitment is not only within our culture, it is a widespread pandemic. I think it has to do with the fact that everyone is turning into bigger a--holes, but I may be wrong. Relationships should be underrated. One should give less of a s--t about a potential romance unless it knocks his or her socks off. Freedom and variety, which sounds like a recipe for a one-night stand, are great, but those things are worth dropping when someone better comes around. People should stop wasting so much time on a--holes or those who are only around because being lonesome is worse. Find the people that matter. Dear Mediocre Advice, Relationships are overrated, and I think our culture is progressively adopting lost interest in committing to one an other. I dont know about you, but I like freedom and variety. Agree or disagree, but please substantiate your claim. Dear Mediocre Advice, I started shaving my hoo-hoo in high school because my lady friends all said I should. I thought this was the norm, but today a blogger and self-proclaimed sexpert I follow wrote that classy adult women dont shave. To make matters more confusing, now a lot of my female friends say they dont shave because they dont like to look like 10-year-olds, and the guy Im hooking up with says its unnecessary. When did the trend change? What do I do? What do you do? Dear Mediocre Advice, This guy I talk to told me that he likes me, but when we are alone, he never makes a move. Its annoying. What do I do? Dear Friend, Why are you waiting for him to make the move? Im sure youre sick of holding hands by now. The next time you two are alone, dont wait just go in and kiss him. There are many reasons Catholic parents taught him that kissing and fornication are sins. For your sake, I hope its not No. 3. But whenever you think the time is right, you should do something. Show a little chutzpah! Look out for Mediocre Advice in 2013: Get your questions answererd at mediocreadvicegators.tumblr. com/ask

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Coach Roland Thornqvist and the UF tennis programs will begin playing in a new indoor facility in December. See story, page 16. Georgetown game will not resumeFlorida and Georgetown will not play the second half of their suspended season opener because the two sides could not agree on a date, a Georgetown spokesperson told ESPN on Wednesday.Tymrak up for national award for the 2012 Missouri Athletic Clubs Hermann Trophy, which is given to the NCAAs top soccer player. Sugar never tasted so bittersweet. No. 5 Florida is all but assured an appearance in its ninth Sugar Bowl, as two key decisions by coach Will Muschamp returned a broken program to national title contention. Muschamp, his 10 assistants and countless others involved behind the scenes deserve much of the credit. The players earned the victories, but the coaches made a difference tween jubilation and heartbreak. Floridas success is largely due to Muschamp picking Jeff Driskel to quarterback a mundane offense built around the running game. UF entered the year with questions surrounding every offensive position. No quandary was more polarizing than who would take the snaps under center. Throughout the offseason, nobody mentioned one quarterback without talking about the other. ing both of them against Bowling Green in the season opener. Having two starting quarterbacks wasnt going to work for a team searching for an identity. The coaching staff recognized which player gave UF the best chance to win. With an unproven offensive line, a mobile Driskel made the most sense. Muschamp knew the Gators werent the sexiest team in America. He just wanted wins. Naming Driskel the starter established Floridas M.O. as a physical football team. Although the Gators turned into Americas most boring offense midway through the season, Muschamp LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer For the Gators, this seasons walk. opponents by an average margin of 23.8 points and is second in the country in scoring defense, allowing only 48.4 points per game. The Gators smothered thenNo. 22 Wisconsin, outmuscled Middle Tennessee and outhustled UCF. Either were just playing at a high level right now, or I guess other teams havent been able to match our intensity and energy, junior center Patric Young said. We havent had to face much adversity in the games that weve played. No. 7 Florida could see its squares off against Marquette (51) in the OConnell Center for a rematch of last years Sweet 16. The contest kicks off a difthat features road games against Florida State on Dec. 5 and No. 9 Arizona on Dec. 15. out a lot more about ourselves, coach Billy Donovan said. Clearly, as it relates to maybe most schools across the country, I think ours has got to be one of the more challenging non-conference schedules. In last years NCAA Tournament, the Gators defeated the Golden Eagles 68-58 to advance to the Elite Eight. In 2011-12, then-seniors Darius Johnson-Odom and Jae Crowder scored 46.9 percent of Marquettes points as the Golden East. UF also lost two key players since last season. Starting point guard Erving Walker graduated, and guard Brad Beal bolted for the NBA Draft and was selected No. 3 overall by the Washington Wizards. Both of us have new faces on our teams, senior guard Kenny Boynton said. Theyve lost their two primary scorers, but now theyre more of a balanced team. Added Donovan: Their team kind of went as Crowder and [Johnson-Odom] went, and those ly have the potential to be better than they were a year ago. Marquettes only loss this season was a 72-71 defeat to Butler at the Maui Invitational, when guard Rotnei Clarke shocked the Golden Eagles with a desperation three-point heave that beat the buzzer. Florida and Marquette are both deep and balanced. Six Golden Eagles average at least seven points per game. Juniors and leading scorers Davante Gardner, Vander Blue and Jamil Wilson are Marquettes top talents. With junior point guard Scottie Wilbekin (suspension) and junior forward Casey Prather (multiple concussions) back in the mix, UFs rotation is 11 players deep. Its going to be anybodys night for our team, Young said. Thats how balanced I think we are. Scotties coming off the bench, knocking down a lot of shots. Youve got Casey, who can affect the game with his athleticism and his energy. If lineups switch up however they do, guys off the bench are going to be ready to step in and just pick up the slack. Florida center Patric Young (4) dunks the ball during an 84-35 win against Alabama State on Nov. 11 at the OConnell Center. Young scored 12 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the victory. Gators to be tested after easy start PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Writer The Gators have struggled from three-point range this season. But, much to the chagrin of coach Amanda Butler, that hasnt stopped them from trying. Through seven games, Florida is 33 of 130 (25.4 percent) from three-point range, attempting nearly 19 shots per game. Aside from Carlie Needles, who has made 19 of her 47 attempts, the Gators are shooting 16.9 percent. Weve got to be a little bit more judicious and have a little bit more discernment in our shot selection, Butler said. If youre settling for a three, then youve got to look at that a little bit closer and make a good decision. the ball inside more often. In Floridas 74-58 loss to Arizona State on Sunday, the Sun Devils outscored the Gators 50-24 in the paint. UF made just 1 of 9 threepoint attempts, which continued a trend that has bothered Butler this season. Sydney (Moss) is the perfect example, Butler said. She is really hard to guard in the paint. Shes really hard to guard off the dribble. But youre not as hard to guard behind the three-point line. Senior Jennifer George plays the largest role in ensuring the offense runs as the coaching staff hopes.Florida struggling from behind arcTHE ADAM BOMB Coaching key for UF Weve got to be a little bit more judicious and have a little bit more discernment in our shot selection.Amanda ButlerUF coachUF faces Marquette at 9 Coaching key for UF twitter: @pincus_adam

George is averaging a team-leading 13.5 points per game and is the focal point of UFs low-post offense. As the lone senior, she knows her role is critical to the teams success. I need to step up, George said. I set the tone. I need to take more pride in my offense and defense down low. Needles, the only bright spot for Floridas three-point shooting this season, said Butler urged the Gators to understand that open shots are not necessarily good shots. You have to that have been making shots, Needles said. People have been playing zone to keep the ball away from Jennifer, but we need to work and stay key to what makes us successful. stuck to his guns, which is decision No. 2. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease arrived after six years at Boise State. Last year, he ran a balanced offense with a dynamic passing game. Florida has 259 pass attempts and 509 rushes this season. UFs offense is ranked No. 104 nationally, the worst for a as far back as the NCAA website lists total offense rankteam was even close was in 2003, when No. 4 Ohio State But UFs offensive formula never changed run, run and run some more. Granted, running the ball may be the only thing the Gators can do on a consistent basis. But Muschamp never once tried to turn the offense into something it isnt. UF is in good hands with Muschamp at the helm. He showed he can make decisions with conviction and follow through. The second-year coach isnt by a what if? Complacency kills, Muschamp said. You cant get complacent in what youre trying to do. Forget about what could have been. With Muschamp leading the way, the best is yet to come.

The UF Athletic Association, with funding from alum Nancy Perry, built a new indoor tennis facility. Executive associate athletic director of internal affairs Chip Howard said via email that UF built the Charles R. and Nancy V. Perry Indoor Tennis Facility so the teams could practice through the rain. Howard and Florida womens coach Roland Thornqvist considered the previous indoor facility subpar. The courts were not regulation played on them. Rain leaked onto the courts from the sides of the facility, negating its primary purpose. We hoped for a few years that we could take the old facility down because it wasnt appropriate anymore, Thornqvist said. UFs need for an indoor court was prominent because of frequent rain in Florida. Rain on hard courts like the ones at Alfred A. Ring Tennis Complex, where the Gators compete outdoors, presents safety issues. As soon as it starts raining on hard court, you have to stop, Thornqvist said. Mens coach Bryan Shelton related playing on a wet hard court to driving on wet pavement it gets slippery. You put on the brakes too hard, and all of a sudden you are sliding out and a little bit out of control, Shelton said. Thats what happens when you try to play when the courts get wet. With the new facility, the Gators can practice for indoor tournaments without driving to Gainesvilles other indoor courts. Also, Florida can now host indoor tournaments, Howard said. Both coaches appreciate the efforts of Howard, Nancy Perry and UAA. Its just the commitment that this place has to doing things the right way, Shelton said.
