SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAlumni and supporters have taken to the Internet to express their discontent with the University Athletic Associations recent decision to ground UF cheerleaders. A Save Florida Cheerleading Facebook page has garnered nearly 1,000 likes since its creation Nov. 28, as of press time. Other cheerleading squads, like one at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, posted pictures with signs that support reversing the UAAs ban on tumbling and stunting at events, games and practices. The Facebook page coincides with a Save Florida Cheerleading website. Both sites ask The Gator Nation to contact UF athletic director Jeremy Foley and assistant athletic director Martin Salamone asking them Jason Merslich, a former UF cheerleader and one of the Facebook page creators, said he hopes the pages will bring awareness to boosters and alumni. The dangers associated with acrobatic stunts are not worth the risk for the cheerleaders or UF, senior associate athletics director Steve McClain wrote in an emailed statement. Instead of waiting for a tragedy to occur, we are taking a proactive stance to protect the cheerleaders, who represent the University of Florida with enthusiasm and class, McClain wrote, and allow them to lead cheers at Gator games for years to come. Grounded UF cheer squad sees support THE RINK WAS DUE TO OPEN MONDAY. MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterThe downtown ice rink, scheduled to open Monday, has been delayed until Midwest Display Inc. gets the rink set up. No new date was announced, but the rink is expected to be open as rapidly as possible, according to a city statement. The third delay was caused by cracks in the lines that will be used to cool the ice, said David Ballard, events coordinator for the city Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. The cracked PVC pipes will be replaced with copper piping. The rink was originally scheduled to open Nov. 23, but it was delayed until Friday and then Monday because of some techsetting up the 35-foot-tall tent, said Russell Etling, city cultural affairs programs coordinator. After the second delay, Midwest Display Inc. announced it skating for free. The company will still offer three days of free skating when the rink opens, according to the release. The delays have raised questions about whether these setbacks Ballard said hes sure thats on the supervisors minds. After all, thats how they are making their money, he said. But theyre working through the troubles that theyve experienced.

The bus service, which is among the commuter services used by UF students for trips out of town, was carrying a group of Jehovahs Witnesses when the driver took a wrong turn into Miami International Airport, according to The Miami Herald. The bus crashed into an overpass that was too low for it to pass under. Two men, ages 86 and 56, died from the crash, according to The Miami Herald. Mayling Hernandez, co-owner of Miami Bus Service, said bus service will continue as usual for UF students. This is an accident, she said. Its something you cannot predict. UF Transportation and Parking Services director Scott Fox said UF doesnt have contractual agreements with commuter bus services. We dont partner with them, he said. We dont hire them. He said the only control UF has over bus services that frequent UF, including Miami Bus Service, is that UF tells the services where they can park on campus. The buses can load students on the Commuter Lot service drive and a bus shelter by the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Hernandez said the driver in the crash isnt driving with the company anymore. Weve never had an accident, she said, not even a minor one.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 HE TAUGHT 99 SECTIONS OF REPORTING. JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff WriterEd Weston has spent 42 years teaching UF students about words, but maybe the story of his career is best told in numbers. When Weston retires at the end of this semester, his records show hell have taught 156 sections of Public Affairs Reporting, 99 sections of Reporting, 39 sections of writing for mass communications and nine sections of Fact Finding, among others. I like working with individual students, he said. Its really kind of fun. But Weston, 66, didnt start out with professorial goals even while earning his masters degree at Northwestern University, he said, It was pretty clear to me I didnt want to teach. Weston was an editor at the Omaha WorldHerald when UFs Robert Simmons asked him to join the faculty at UFs College of Journalism and Communications, and he did so in 1970. Since then, Weston has spent a majority of his time as a lab instructor, doing hands-on exercises with journalism students, including conducting Applied Journalism classes at The Gainesville Sun. You get these bright, hardworking, creative folks, and they just need a few tools, Weston said. Then, you kind of get out of their way and see what they build with them. And I think thats really neat. Department of Journalism chair Wayne Wanta said Weston has been an institution at the college, noting his consistency and value as a faculty member. I wish I could keep him for another 40 years, Wanta said. Though he said hell miss the students and faculty members, Weston is looking forward to spending time with his family, including his granddaughters, Caitlyn and Emma, and attending Gators baseball games. He also plans to travel with his wife, Jean, who has already booked three cruises. Contact Julia Glum at jglum@alligator.org. Courtesy to the AlligatorEd Weston, front row, far right, stands with students of an Applied Journalism class at The Gainesville Sun in the Spring quarter of 1975. Journalism faculty member sails on from long-standing post Merslich, a 27-year-old physical therapist, said he has never treated a patient who was injured because of cheerleading. In the 2005-2006 school year, 12 high school and college female cheer leaders suffered catastrophic injuries, according to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. That amount has dropped steadily, and in the 20102011 school year, one catastrophic injury was reported for high school cheerleaders, and none for college. former cheerleader Patrick Fitzger ald, 23, said banning the cheerleaders from stunts was a caring approach, but a quick decision without much research. Fitzgerald, who cheered from 2008 to 2012, said the cheerleaders had to get stunts approved by a medical advisory board to decide if they were safe to perform. He said he thought the system worked well. In 2011, about 2,500 women from ages 18 to 22 visited the emergency room for a cheerleading related incident, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Thats about 3,700 fewer visits than for soccer related injuries and about 8,100 fewer than for basketball. [The UF cheerleaders] are adults doing it and understand the risks, Merslich said.

The incident started just after midnight when Bruce Mullins, a 62-year-old Gainesville resident, approached a homeless man lying on a sidewalk near the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, located on East University Avenue, and allegedly struck him with an orreport. The victim leapt to his feet and ran across a nearby road as Mullins chased after him with the cone. The victim tried to pull out a pocketknife to defend himself, but Mullins struck him three to four times, according to the report, At about 12:30 a.m., the victim called Gainesville Police on a pay phone to report they found Mullins smoking a cigarette nearDuring questioning, Mullins said he didnt have the cone and only fought the victim verbally. Mullins later changed his story, saying he did have the cone and swung it at the victim when he pulled out his knife and began jabbing at me, Mullins said in the report. Tobias was not able to time of the incident. Police arrested Mullins on a simple battery charge and booked him into the Alachua County Jail at about 1:30 a.m. on Monday. He was released later that afternoon. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.Man attacks man with cone MMullins

Loser Lohan Media should probably just lay offWeve got trouble, right here in the USA. Trouble with a capital T, that rhymes with L, that stands for Lindsay Lohan. We dont necessarily want to talk about Lohan because everyone talking about her all the time is probably a big source of her problems, but we feel compelled. Shes become such a source of national ridicule and pity that even Mel Gibson wants to help her out. He said in an interview with Extra that he reached out to her in the past, and he might do so again. If Mel-tdown Gibson wants to help you with your It just seems like the more attention she receives in the media, the more that terrible things happen to her. The Lifetime movie about Elizabeth Taylor, Liz & Dick, premiered on Nov. 25 to, lets say, mixed reviews. People magazine said her performance as Taylor was fascinating and terrible. Los Angeles Times TV reviewer Mary McNamara called it a sion. A few days later, after attending a Justin Bieber concert in New York, Lohan went to a nightclub (as she is wont to do). She ended up punching a psychic. We know that sounds like an outrageous story, but its actually true. Lohan claims she didnt punch her accuser, but she said she instead called her a gypsy and the psychics friend tried to steal Lohans purse. Dont worry, though, because Lohan is probably going to hire a private investigator. The psychic, Tiffany Ava Mitchell, could be trying to make a quick buck. A few days after that, Lohans assets were frozen by the IRS in an effort to recover $233,904 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and and New York Daily News. It is a saga. If someone ever makes a biopic of Lohan (could be called Linds Is Sick, youre welcome, Lifetime), a lot of it would take place in courtrooms or on Twitter when she fought with Amanda Bynes that one time. This entire editorial seems like an episode of Gossip Girl, right? Heres the point: Celebrities feed off attention and use it to continue to propel them in the direction they are already headed. Like, if Lohan was on the up-and-up and received attention for all her good things, then she would be praised. The cycle would continue, and she would be basically on the same level as someone like Reese Witherspoon. However, because Lohan had some hard times, the press started paying more attention to all the terrible things that either just happened in her life or that she did to herself. The cycle continued, and now shes just a mess. Attention breeds similar acts. Its like training an animal. Only give them treats when they do something good, but dont scold them if they do something bad. Not that Lindsay Lohan is like an animal, but we all remember that scene in Mean Girls.Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, readers of all ages: Life is chaotic and complicated. However, it must be the correct combination of planned and spontaneous in order to be a hit. Dangerous, thrilling, emotional and unpredictable, life is a circus. We walk many tightropes and take narrow paths in hopes that we dont fall. Always anxious, we tiptoe through the journey, hoping we dont fail to succeed. We are expert jugglers. Always occupied with more tasks than we can handle, we somehow manage to stay in synchronization. make us come alive. We want to share our passions with the able to do so. Many times we put ourselves in danger in pursuit of what we desire. What awaits on the other side could be recognithan what we have now. We hope we can make it through the test and say the leap of faith was well worth it. Why do we put ourselves in these kinds of situations in the thrill of it. When things get tough, we satisfy our egos by putting on stilts to be above everyone around us. feel we can trust, we repeatedly swing back and forth to them, away from them, until we have the courage to let go and clutch on. All we can hope is that they embrace us and dont let us fall. Wed be ashamed and embarrassed after getting played. Although places around the world have different interpretations, the concept of the circus is a shared experience, people of all walks of life grow to be intrigued with. Some circus shows are high-class, some are low-maintenance. Some take place in parking lots for free, while others occur in grand auditoriums with high-priced tickets. Some are child-friendly while others are much more serious in nature. The circus will travel and make stops all around the world. Some big tops stay in one city their entire run while others have the chance to see the entire globe. No matter where your own circus goes, remember its on the road for a reason. When its all said and done, its only an illusion. Eventually, we lose our possessions, costumes, props and reveal our true selves. circuses prosper because they have a trusting relationship with their ringmaster. We dont understand every action he believe he is in control of a beautiful experience. The ringmaster is the most visible and most vital in the show. tion of the audience members watching. His presence is strong enough to make them fear, respect, praise, admire and love him all at once. This master of ceremonies keeps the show moving, even during times that seem rough. The ringmaster loves us as performers. Even when we feel were miniscule or unworthy of attention, he reminds us that we are uniquely created and are spectacular creatures because he made us and molded us into who we are. Even though at times we are unprepared and ungraceful, he convinces us we are worth much more. He sees potential inside us we dont even know exists. Thank you for being an engaging and responsive audience on this stop of my own traveling circus. I hope we all continue to grow and can one day stop the adventure, rest and say we were part of a worthy spectacle for our ringmaster. Anayo Ordu is an advertising sophomore at UF.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorI am a Gainesville resident and have been for 18 years. Sunday night, I had the most wonderful musical experience! to enjoy a performance presented by the UF School of Music. Don Suther, a tenor for the Gainesville Civic Chorus Master Chorale, invited me to the performance of the UF School of Musics Sounds of the Season. I wish I had realized how truly amazing this experience would be; I would have brought my whole family. The evening began as the University Concert Choir and the Gainesville Civic Chorus was heavenly singing the Gloria in Excelsis Deo, from above me in the balcony while the University Symphony Orchestra stage of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. I closed my eyes, breathed in deep and my soul was lifted out of my body to was a wonderful experience and a beautiful beginning to the Christmas season. African Noel, performed by the Womens Chorale, the Mens Glee Club and the African Percussion, was very uplifting and cheerful, as was each of the other 12 arrangements. Bravo! I would like to thank everyone involved in this musical experience. The night could not have been more perfect! Each one of you painted a vision in my mind with your very positive energy and amazing talent. Thank you, UF and Dr. and Mrs. Machen, for your very generous musical gift to our community. May God bless all of you with peace and happiness. Linda S. DiFranco Gainesville resident P.S. The UF radio station recorded the whole evening for all of the community to enjoy this season. Butts are everywhere! the park, on sidewalks, in parking lots, sporting events, the list goes on. Cigarette butts. It is impossible to go anywhere withtossed on the ground. We are taught from a very young age that we shouldnt litter. Society encourages us to throw our garbage in the trash. Many people in the Gainesville area are familiar with the catchy slogan, Put it in the can, Gator fan. Cities organize cleanup days to educate the public and get the community involved. It seems the majority of society frowns upon someone throwing their burger wrapper or water bottle on the ground. So why are cigarette butts an exception to the rule? What makes people turn the other cheek when it comes to the single most littered item in America and worldwide? When I asked some smokers for their opinion on this matter, most of them had common responses. One of the most common responses regarded the inconvenience of not having more receptacles to throw their cigarette butts in. Others thought cigarettes were biodegradable, and it wasnt as bad as throwing other trash on the ground. Many of the smokers admitted to not thinking anything of it, saying, Its a habit. Whatever the reasons are, this thoughtless act must stop. long as 10 years to decompose. They contain toxic chemicals that can seep into the environments they are left in. These chemicals can make their way into the soil and waterways, potentially causing harmful effects. The little bit of tobacco that is left in the cigarette can cause adverse effects to the environment. What can be done to reduce the littering of cigarette butts? First and foremost, the public should be educated on the harmful effects cigarette butts have on the environment. Behavior and attitudes about littering need to be changed, and education about the subject is a successful way to go about it. I also propose that the City of Gainesville provide more cigarette receptacles for smokers to use. Laws and be upheld, even for cigarette butts. To those of you who smoke, take responsibility for your actions. Make a choice not to litter. If youre in your car, utilize the ashtray instead of throwing the cigarette out the window. Carry a portable ashtray with you so you will always have a place to dispose of the cigarettes. Smokers, please think about what you are doing to the environment next time you go to put your butt on the ground. Ashley Beasley is a wildlife ecology and conservation senior at UF.Gainesville should ban cigarette butts from cityGuest columnAshley BeasleySpeaking Out Imagine an AIDS-free generation. This could happen, but only if we take the necessary steps at this moment. This summer, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed the United States would maintain its commitment to provide the funding and resources needed to achieve this historic milestone at the 2012 International AIDS Conference. Dec. 1 marks the 34th World AIDS Day. Although it is important to commemorate the millions of lives that have been lost to HIV/AIDS, it is even more crucial to recognize that this single day represents a greater movement to eventually end AIDS altogether. Impending sequestration cuts that could be enacted in January threaten the possibility of an AIDS-free generation. Despite challenges combating a disease that continuously changes and adapts within the host cells of patients, recent research indicates that it may be possible to control the transmission of HIV. The HPTN 052 study, sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, used a randomized clinical trial to understand whether antiretroviral treatment, a combination of drugs already used to treat HIV, could prevent sexual transmission of HIV among couples in which one member was HIV-positive. Remarkably, the study demonstrated that ATRVs as a form of treatment are actually a form of prevention: The uninfected partner does not contract the virus. By providing patients with treatment, transmission of the virus can be stopped. As a result of Congress failed attempt to debt ceiling crisis, the Budget Control Act of trillion in the next decade (starting this January). Different sectors will be impacted differently by the cuts, but all will be hurt, and small programs will get hit the hardest. For example, sequestration will be disastrous to health research, an area that already struggles with receiving adequate funding. A 7.8 percent sequester is to be enacted for agencies such as the National Institute of Health, which will Centers for Disease Control and Prevencretionary funding is projected to decline by will be slashed by 8.4 percent across the board. This reduction is estimated to result in an increase of global AIDS-related deaths by more than 60,000. Nearly 275,000 people will be left without AIDS treatment and services. Although the Budget Control Act was presented last year, there is still the possibility for Congress to enact another solution by January a solution that would not put lives at risk. single bipartisan issue of our time. Lauded by Bill Clinton as a legacy of the Bush administration, U.S. efforts to combat AIDS both at home and abroad must continue, even in the most pressing of economic times. Congress should take decisive steps to ensure the U.S. remains an undisputed leader in the not be used as an excuse to slash domestic and global programs that are keeping patients alive. In the U.S. alone, the onslaught of devastating sequestration would bring lifesaving research to a halt and leave thousands of people without the medicine they depend on for survival. As of Sept. 30, the U.S. directly supported nearly 5.1 million people on antiretroviral treatment through the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. This is a threefold increase in four years, up from 1.7 million in 2008. We cannot afford to undercut this progress by defunding domestic and global programs. Aleeza H.

David Brown, chairman of the presidential search committee, wrote in a letter that the committee will interview candidates during a three-day period from Jan. 10 through Jan. 12. Search consultant Jan Greenwood has said the presidents of a couple of major research universities are waiting for the last minute to apply. Floridas Sunshine Law, which dictates their applications are public record, could cause those applicants to face criticism from their own campuses about seeking a new job. Theyre going to sit in the wings until somebody tells them to jump in, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. I anticipate itll be pretty close to those next set of meetings in January. Interviews were originally scheduled to begin this weekend.

UFs Environmental Horticulture Club will host its 17th annual Poinsettia Show and Sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and 8 Hall on Hull Road. The sale will feature 10 benches displaying a total of 4,000 poinsettia plants, with average prices falling between $10 to $23, Scolaro said. The presidential poinsettias, which are about 4 feet tall, will sell for up to $75. More than 30 types of poinsettias will be offered at the sale, Scolaro said, and a display will give customers ideas on ways to use the different-sized plants. She said her favorite part of working with the plants is watching them change color. Within about a weeks time, the greenhouse goes from a sea of green to a palette of colors, Scolaro said. Club president Maxwell Mer cer, a 20-year-old plant science junior, said the club receives poinsettia liners in early August from breeders in California, Ger many and Holland. Students prepare the plants by potting, pinching, watering and spacing the poinsettias, Mercer said. The proceeds from the sale will go toward an international trip for the students in the Environmental Horticulture Club, Mercer said. dents attend a national agriculture competition at Auburn University next year. Mercer said he is excited to talk to customers and tell them about the work the club has put into producing the show and sale. He said the sale will show people more than 97 varieties of poinsettias ranging in color, shape and size. The plants bring warmth and holiday spirit into ones home or yard, Mercer said.Christmas goes beyond red and green at poinsettia salecaCAMPUS Within about a weeks time, the greenhouse goes from a sea of green to a palette of colors.Sheila Scolaroplant science junior

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer Coach Billy Donovan may have to once again test out a new starting lineup. Forward Erik Murphy is dealing with a hip pointer and has not practiced since facing Marquette on Thursday, Donovan said on Monday. Murphys status for Wednesdays game against Florida State remains unclear. I dont know what is going to happen to the starting lineup right now, Donovan said. I would say Erik, based on what he is able to do now may have something to do with the starting lineups. Murphy missed practice on Nov. 12 because of a migraine. Still, he started against Wisconsin two days later and posted 24 points and eight rebounds in UFs 74-56 win. Murphys injury gives Patric Young a chance to move back into the starting lineup after coming off the bench in Floridas 82-49 win against Marquette on Thursday. Young was held out of the lineup displaying a poor attitude during Wednesdays practice. start of the year on Thursday. Young recorded 10 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks off the bench. Donovan said the Young is taking his punishment in stride and showing improvements in practice. Patric has responded really well, and I am happy with the way hes responded not only in the game, (but) hes responded really well in practice, Donovan said. Thats what he needs to do. He practiced very well yesterday and affected our team in a really positive way. If Murphy misses Wednesdays game, the Gators will have to play a man down for the third time. Florida Wilbekin because of a suspension. Casey Prather missed the seasons cussions suffered during preseason practices. After enduring multiple lineup changes, Florida believes it can handle another one. What has been great about our team so far this year is weve played with guys out, Mike Rosario said.

CHARLES KINGSBURYAlligator Writer Before every round and every practice, T.J. Vogel takes a Sharpie pen to his Titleist golf ball and marks four letters that signify his mothers enduring message. Remember who you are. The words keep him motivated, hungry. He has promised himself he will never abandon his game again. In the spring of 2011 at USC, a few bad shots turned into a few bad port system was a six-hour plane ride away in Cooper City 2,713 miles east of California. Vogel hit rock bottom in his play, and the lack of support from his coaching staff put his game in the gutter. He was not the player so many were accustomed to seeing. Vogel is as thin as a nine iron but as competitive as Rory McIlroy. His love of competition fueled a successful high school career during which he was named the 2007 and 2008 South Florida Sun-Sentinel Boys Golfer of the Year. In his senior season, Vogel led Plantation American Heritage to the Florida Class 1A Tournament after winning the individual district and regional titles. He earned a scholarship to USC. As a freshman he led the Trojans with a 72.1 stroke average and He was a freshman All-American in 2009-10. I felt really good about where things were, Vogel said. He continued strong during his on the team in stroke average. Two months later, Vogel was set to pick up where he left off. He still had not won a tournament, but he was on the cusp. He led USC at one of the nations most competitive venues, the U.S. Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, of 78. The rest of the year seemed set up for Vogel. However, Vogel struggled dur ing the spring. His stat line was a punching bag for criticism. I was still playing well and I dont know, something happened, Vogel said. I started to play bad. I came back and kind of lost a little bit lost my game. once. He then carded a 1-under 215 at the Amer Ari Invitational. He folthe USC Collegiate Invitational almost a month later. By April, Vogel Suddenly, much more than a of Vogel getting back to the top. His coach was eager to change his swing. He didnt touch me when I was playing well, Vogel said. But what coach is going to touch you when youre playing at your best? Chris Zambri, a former USC AllPac-10 player, was considered one of the nations better swing coaches. Zambri was a six-year Nationwide Tour veteran. His experience led Vogel to believe he could help him reach the next level in his career. Instead, Zambri started digging ure out why his game fell apart. As soon as I started to not play at my best, he tried to change my swing, Vogel said. He tried to make me cut the ball when Im a natural drawer. Vogel was comfortable hitting draws, and his controlled shot that moves right to left had been successful before. But Zambri wanted Vogel to cut the ball the opposite of his customary stroke. The change did not lead to an improvement. In seven tournament appearances from February to June, Vogels and 39th in his next six events. He closed the year with a 113thonships at Karsten Creek. He fell to 139th in the nation by seasons end. Going through all these problems and youre 3,000 miles away from home, its tough, Vogel said. Talking over the phone with my parents could only do so much. With his game suffering a setback, he needed out. I didnt want to transfer initially because I was really close with the team, Vogel said. I felt like I was quitting. Still, Vogel requested his release from USC in the summer of 2011. Vogel said he transferred to Flor ida to be closer to his family, who lives in Cooper City, and because of his relationship with coach Buddy Alexander. We recruited T.J., and sometimes when you recruit a young man, you just grow very fond of him as an individual, Alexander said. He was a genuine kid. Before arriving on campus, Vogel had a handful of long talks with his parents. He wanted to change. I didnt battle adversity well out in Los Angeles, Vogel said. I made a promise to myself when I got here that I was going to do everything I could to be the best I could be. He started by regaining his con his mother, Jamie told him not to lose sight of his ability. He had to believe in it again. And so he did. In his junior season, Vogel notched victories at the Charleston Shootout in Hollywood, S.C., and the SeaBest Invitational in Ponte Vedra. He led UF in stroke average (71.3) and helped the Gators to three tournament wins. He was also sePING All-Southeast region. Coach Alexanders morale boosts and positive reinforcement gave Vogel the edge he needed to consistently play at a high level. Hes always reminding me how good I am, Vogel said. With Buddy, its always positive and hes always lifting me up. You need a coach who is there to support you when things are going rough, and thats the biggest difference between Buddy and the other coaching staff. Vogel has thrived since joining Florida. His success has led to recognition when he walks in to local restaurants. Nobody cares about golf in Southern Cal, Vogel said. Not too many people are even involved with the school. Here, people know me. Ill walk into a restaurant and people will be like Hey, you are T.J. And Im like Yeah? The recognition is deserved. In fall and leads UF in stroke average. His 71.3 scoring average his junior season ranks eighth best in the programs history. His body of work speaks for itself and says volumes about his potential. [Vogel] has a great desire to be a good golfer, Alexander said, and he certainly has the talent and skill level to play professional golf at the highest level for a long, long time. was the most important factor in golf. No matter how great a players natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain success: work. Vogel has done just that. His toughness and aptitude have shined since he transferred to Florida one on what his mother has always told him. Remember who you are.

Hes a really good friend of mine. I know when he took over that program, I told him if there was anything I could do, I would be more than willing to help, even though I was moving on to Louisville. Reports surfaced last week linking Strong to the head coaching vacancy at Auburn. Strong denied rumors that alleged he had been interviewed. The various head coaching rumors started back when Strong coached at Florida. Hes tired of talking about them. Im never going to deal in rumors, Strong said. People can say whatever they want about me. Theyve always said it, but if I didnt say it, Im not going to deal with it. Strong would rather not face Florida because of his ties to the school.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAlumni and supporters have taken to the Internet to express their discontent with the University Athletic Associations recent decision to ground UF cheerleaders. A Save Florida Cheerleading Facebook page has garnered nearly 1,000 likes since its creation Nov. 28, as of press time. Other cheerleading squads, like one at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, posted pictures with signs that support reversing the UAAs ban on tumbling and stunting at events, games and practices. The Facebook page coincides with a Save Florida Cheerleading website. Both sites ask The Gator Nation to contact UF athletic director Jeremy Foley and assistant athletic director Martin Salamone asking them Jason Merslich, a former UF cheerleader and one of the Facebook page creators, said he hopes the pages will bring awareness to boosters and alumni. The dangers associated with acrobatic stunts are not worth the risk for the cheerleaders or UF, senior associate athletics director Steve McClain wrote in an emailed statement. Instead of waiting for a tragedy to occur, we are taking a proactive stance to protect the cheerleaders, who represent the University of Florida with enthusiasm and class, McClain wrote, and allow them to lead cheers at Gator games for years to come. Grounded UF cheer squad sees support THE RINK WAS DUE TO OPEN MONDAY. MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterThe downtown ice rink, scheduled to open Monday, has been delayed until Midwest Display Inc. gets the rink set up. No new date was announced, but the rink is expected to be open as rapidly as possible, according to a city statement. The third delay was caused by cracks in the lines that will be used to cool the ice, said David Ballard, events coordinator for the city Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs. The cracked PVC pipes will be replaced with copper piping. The rink was originally scheduled to open Nov. 23, but it was delayed until Friday and then Monday because of some techsetting up the 35-foot-tall tent, said Russell Etling, city cultural affairs programs coordinator. After the second delay, Midwest Display Inc. announced it skating for free. The company will still offer three days of free skating when the rink opens, according to the release. The delays have raised questions about whether these setbacks Ballard said hes sure thats on the supervisors minds. After all, thats how they are making their money, he said. But theyre working through the troubles that theyve experienced.

The bus service, which is among the commuter services used by UF students for trips out of town, was carrying a group of Jehovahs Witnesses when the driver took a wrong turn into Miami International Airport, according to The Miami Herald. The bus crashed into an overpass that was too low for it to pass under. Two men, ages 86 and 56, died from the crash, according to The Miami Herald. Mayling Hernandez, co-owner of Miami Bus Service, said bus service will continue as usual for UF students. This is an accident, she said. Its something you cannot predict. UF Transportation and Parking Services director Scott Fox said UF doesnt have contractual agreements with commuter bus services. We dont partner with them, he said. We dont hire them. He said the only control UF has over bus services that frequent UF, including Miami Bus Service, is that UF tells the services where they can park on campus. The buses can load students on the Commuter Lot service drive and a bus shelter by the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Hernandez said the driver in the crash isnt driving with the company anymore. Weve never had an accident, she said, not even a minor one.

4, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 HE TAUGHT 99 SECTIONS OF REPORTING. JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff WriterEd Weston has spent 42 years teaching UF students about words, but maybe the story of his career is best told in numbers. When Weston retires at the end of this semester, his records show hell have taught 156 sections of Public Affairs Reporting, 99 sections of Reporting, 39 sections of writing for mass communications and nine sections of Fact Finding, among others. I like working with individual students, he said. Its really kind of fun. But Weston, 66, didnt start out with professorial goals even while earning his masters degree at Northwestern University, he said, It was pretty clear to me I didnt want to teach. Weston was an editor at the Omaha WorldHerald when UFs Robert Simmons asked him to join the faculty at UFs College of Journalism and Communications, and he did so in 1970. Since then, Weston has spent a majority of his time as a lab instructor, doing hands-on exercises with journalism students, including conducting Applied Journalism classes at The Gainesville Sun. You get these bright, hardworking, creative folks, and they just need a few tools, Weston said. Then, you kind of get out of their way and see what they build with them. And I think thats really neat. Department of Journalism chair Wayne Wanta said Weston has been an institution at the college, noting his consistency and value as a faculty member. I wish I could keep him for another 40 years, Wanta said. Though he said hell miss the students and faculty members, Weston is looking forward to spending time with his family, including his granddaughters, Caitlyn and Emma, and attending Gators baseball games. He also plans to travel with his wife, Jean, who has already booked three cruises. Contact Julia Glum at jglum@alligator.org.

Journalism faculty member sails on from long-standing post Merslich, a 27-year-old physical therapist, said he has never treated a patient who was injured because of cheerleading. In the 2005-2006 school year, 12 high school and college female cheer leaders suffered catastrophic injuries, according to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. That amount has dropped steadily, and in the 20102011 school year, one catastrophic injury was reported for high school cheerleaders, and none for college. former cheerleader Patrick Fitzger ald, 23, said banning the cheerleaders from stunts was a caring approach, but a quick decision without much research. Fitzgerald, who cheered from 2008 to 2012, said the cheerleaders had to get stunts approved by a medical advisory board to decide if they were safe to perform. He said he thought the system worked well. In 2011, about 2,500 women from ages 18 to 22 visited the emergency room for a cheerleading related incident, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Thats about 3,700 fewer visits than for soccer related injuries and about 8,100 fewer than for basketball. [The UF cheerleaders] are adults doing it and understand the risks, Merslich said.

CHEER, from page 1 Stunt injuries have decreasedCRIME CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was arrested early Monday morning after police say he attacked town plaza. The incident started just after midnight when Bruce Mullins, a 62-year-old Gainesville resident, approached a homeless man lying on a sidewalk near the Bo Diddley Community Plaza, located on East University Avenue, and allegedly struck him with an or report. The victim leapt to his feet and ran across a nearby road as Mullins chased after him with the cone. The victim tried to pull out a pocketknife to defend himself, but Mullins struck him three to four times, according to the report, At about 12:30 a.m., the victim called Gainesville Police on a pay phone to report they found Mullins smoking a cigarette near During questioning, Mullins said he didnt have the cone and only fought the victim ver bally. Mullins later changed his story, saying he did have the cone and swung it at the victim when he pulled out his knife and began jabbing at me, Mullins said in the report. Tobias was not able to time of the incident. Police arrested Mullins on a simple battery charge and booked him into the Alachua County Jail at about 1:30 a.m. on Monday. He was released later that afternoon. Contact Chris Alcantara at calcantara@alligator.org.Man attacks man with cone Mullins

Loser Lohan Media should probably just lay offWeve got trouble, right here in the USA. Trouble with a capital T, that rhymes with L, that stands for Lindsay Lohan. We dont necessarily want to talk about Lohan because everyone talking about her all the time is probably a big source of her problems, but we feel compelled. Shes become such a source of national ridicule and pity that even Mel Gibson wants to help her out. He said in an interview with Extra that he reached out to her in the past, and he might do so again. If Mel-tdown Gibson wants to help you with your It just seems like the more attention she receives in the media, the more that terrible things happen to her. The Lifetime movie about Elizabeth Taylor, Liz & Dick, premiered on Nov. 25 to, lets say, mixed reviews. People magazine said her performance as Taylor was fascinating and terrible. Los Angeles Times TV reviewer Mary McNamara called it a sion. A few days later, after attending a Justin Bieber concert in New York, Lohan went to a nightclub (as she is wont to do). She ended up punching a psychic. We know that sounds like an outrageous story, but its actually true. Lohan claims she didnt punch her accuser, but she said she instead called her a gypsy and the psychics friend tried to steal Lohans purse. Dont worry, though, because Lohan is probably going to hire a private investigator. The psychic, Tiffany Ava Mitchell, could be trying to make a quick buck. A few days after that, Lohans assets were frozen by the IRS in an effort to recover $233,904 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and and New York Daily News. It is a saga. If someone ever makes a biopic of Lohan (could be called Linds Is Sick, youre welcome, Lifetime), a lot of it would take place in courtrooms or on Twitter when she fought with Amanda Bynes that one time. This entire editorial seems like an episode of Gossip Girl, right? Heres the point: Celebrities feed off attention and use it to continue to propel them in the direction they are already headed. Like, if Lohan was on the up-and-up and received attention for all her good things, then she would be praised. The cycle would continue, and she would be basically on the same level as someone like Reese Witherspoon. However, because Lohan had some hard times, the press started paying more attention to all the terrible things that either just happened in her life or that she did to herself. The cycle continued, and now shes just a mess. Attention breeds similar acts. Its like training an animal. Only give them treats when they do something good, but dont scold them if they do something bad. Not that Lindsay Lohan is like an animal, but we all remember that scene in Mean Girls.Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, readers of all ages: Life is chaotic and complicated. However, it must be the correct combination of planned and spontaneous in order to be a hit. Dangerous, thrilling, emotional and unpredictable, life is a circus. We walk many tightropes and take narrow paths in hopes that we dont fall. Always anxious, we tiptoe through the journey, hoping we dont fail to succeed. We are expert jugglers. Always occupied with more tasks than we can handle, we somehow manage to stay in synchronization. make us come alive. We want to share our passions with the able to do so. Many times we put ourselves in danger in pursuit of what we desire. What awaits on the other side could be recognithan what we have now. We hope we can make it through the test and say the leap of faith was well worth it. Why do we put ourselves in these kinds of situations in the thrill of it. When things get tough, we satisfy our egos by putting on stilts to be above everyone around us. feel we can trust, we repeatedly swing back and forth to them, away from them, until we have the courage to let go and clutch on. All we can hope is that they embrace us and dont let us fall. Wed be ashamed and embarrassed after getting played. Although places around the world have different interpretations, the concept of the circus is a shared experience, people of all walks of life grow to be intrigued with. Some circus shows are high-class, some are low-maintenance. Some take place in parking lots for free, while others occur in grand auditoriums with high-priced tickets. Some are child-friendly while others are much more serious in nature. The circus will travel and make stops all around the world. Some big tops stay in one city their entire run while others have the chance to see the entire globe. No matter where your own circus goes, remember its on the road for a reason. When its all said and done, its only an illusion. Eventually, we lose our possessions, costumes, props and reveal our true selves. circuses prosper because they have a trusting relationship with their ringmaster. We dont understand every action he believe he is in control of a beautiful experience. The ringmaster is the most visible and most vital in the show. tion of the audience members watching. His presence is strong enough to make them fear, respect, praise, admire and love him all at once. This master of ceremonies keeps the show moving, even during times that seem rough. The ringmaster loves us as performers. Even when we feel were miniscule or unworthy of attention, he reminds us that we are uniquely created and are spectacular creatures because he made us and molded us into who we are. Even though at times we are unprepared and ungraceful, he convinces us we are worth much more. He sees potential inside us we dont even know exists. Thank you for being an engaging and responsive audience on this stop of my own traveling circus. I hope we all continue to grow and can one day stop the adventure, rest and say we were part of a worthy spectacle for our ringmaster. Anayo Ordu is an advertising sophomore at UF.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorI am a Gainesville resident and have been for 18 years. Sunday night, I had the most wonderful musical experience! to enjoy a performance presented by the UF School of Music. Don Suther, a tenor for the Gainesville Civic Chorus Master Chorale, invited me to the performance of the UF School of Musics Sounds of the Season. I wish I had realized how truly amazing this experience would be; I would have brought my whole family. The evening began as the University Concert Choir and the Gainesville Civic Chorus was heavenly singing the Gloria in Excelsis Deo, from above me in the balcony while the University Symphony Orchestra stage of the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. I closed my eyes, breathed in deep and my soul was lifted out of my body to was a wonderful experience and a beautiful beginning to the Christmas season. African Noel, performed by the Womens Chorale, the Mens Glee Club and the African Percussion, was very uplifting and cheerful, as was each of the other 12 arrangements. Bravo! I would like to thank everyone involved in this musical experience. The night could not have been more perfect! Each one of you painted a vision in my mind with your very positive energy and amazing talent. Thank you, UF and Dr. and Mrs. Machen, for your very generous musical gift to our community. May God bless all of you with peace and happiness. Linda S. DiFranco Gainesville resident P.S. The UF radio station recorded the whole evening for all of the community to enjoy this season. Butts are everywhere! the park, on sidewalks, in parking lots, sporting events, the list goes on. Cigarette butts. It is impossible to go anywhere withtossed on the ground. We are taught from a very young age that we shouldnt litter. Society encourages us to throw our garbage in the trash. Many people in the Gainesville area are familiar with the catchy slogan, Put it in the can, Gator fan. Cities organize cleanup days to educate the public and get the community involved. It seems the majority of society frowns upon someone throwing their burger wrapper or water bottle on the ground. So why are cigarette butts an exception to the rule? What makes people turn the other cheek when it comes to the single most littered item in America and worldwide? When I asked some smokers for their opinion on this matter, most of them had common responses. One of the most common responses regarded the inconvenience of not having more receptacles to throw their cigarette butts in. Others thought cigarettes were biodegradable, and it wasnt as bad as throwing other trash on the ground. Many of the smokers admitted to not thinking anything of it, saying, Its a habit. Whatever the reasons are, this thoughtless act must stop. long as 10 years to decompose. They contain toxic chemicals that can seep into the environments they are left in. These chemicals can make their way into the soil and waterways, potentially causing harmful effects. The little bit of tobacco that is left in the cigarette can cause adverse effects to the environment. What can be done to reduce the littering of cigarette butts? First and foremost, the public should be educated on the harmful effects cigarette butts have on the environment. Behavior and attitudes about littering need to be changed, and education about the subject is a successful way to go about it. I also propose that the City of Gainesville provide more cigarette receptacles for smokers to use. Laws and be upheld, even for cigarette butts. To those of you who smoke, take responsibility for your actions. Make a choice not to litter. If youre in your car, utilize the ashtray instead of throwing the cigarette out the window. Carry a portable ashtray with you so you will always have a place to dispose of the cigarettes. Smokers, please think about what you are doing to the environment next time you go to put your butt on the ground. Ashley Beasley is a wildlife ecology and conservation senior at UF.Gainesville should ban cigarette butts from cityGuest columnAshley BeasleySpeaking Out Imagine an AIDS-free generation. This could happen, but only if we take the necessary steps at this moment. This summer, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed the United States would maintain its commitment to provide the funding and resources needed to achieve this historic milestone at the 2012 International AIDS Conference. Dec. 1 marks the 34th World AIDS Day. Although it is important to commemorate the millions of lives that have been lost to HIV/AIDS, it is even more crucial to recognize that this single day represents a greater movement to eventually end AIDS altogether. Impending sequestration cuts that could be enacted in January threaten the possibility of an AIDS-free generation. Despite challenges combating a disease that continuously changes and adapts within the host cells of patients, recent research indicates that it may be possible to control the transmission of HIV. The HPTN 052 study, sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, used a randomized clinical trial to understand whether antiretroviral treatment, a combination of drugs already used to treat HIV, could prevent sexual transmission of HIV among couples in which one member was HIV-positive. Remarkably, the study demonstrated that ATRVs as a form of treatment are actually a form of prevention: The uninfected partner does not contract the virus. By providing patients with treatment, transmission of the virus can be stopped. As a result of Congress failed attempt to debt ceiling crisis, the Budget Control Act of trillion in the next decade (starting this January). Different sectors will be impacted differently by the cuts, but all will be hurt, and small programs will get hit the hardest. For example, sequestration will be disastrous to health research, an area that already struggles with receiving adequate funding. A 7.8 percent sequester is to be enacted for agencies such as the National Institute of Health, which will Centers for Disease Control and Prevencretionary funding is projected to decline by will be slashed by 8.4 percent across the board. This reduction is estimated to result in an increase of global AIDS-related deaths by more than 60,000. Nearly 275,000 people will be left without AIDS treatment and services. Although the Budget Control Act was presented last year, there is still the possibility for Congress to enact another solution by January a solution that would not put lives at risk. single bipartisan issue of our time. Lauded by Bill Clinton as a legacy of the Bush administration, U.S. efforts to combat AIDS both at home and abroad must continue, even in the most pressing of economic times. Congress should take decisive steps to ensure the U.S. remains an undisputed leader in the not be used as an excuse to slash domestic and global programs that are keeping patients alive. In the U.S. alone, the onslaught of devastating sequestration would bring lifesaving research to a halt and leave thousands of people without the medicine they depend on for survival. As of Sept. 30, the U.S. directly supported nearly 5.1 million people on antiretroviral treatment through the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. This is a threefold increase in four years, up from 1.7 million in 2008. We cannot afford to undercut this progress by defunding domestic and global programs. Aleeza H.

Floridas Sunshine Law, which dictates their applications are public record, could cause those applicants to face criticism from their own campuses about seeking a new job.

UF president to be selected next month NOELIA TRUJILLOAlligator Contributing WriterFor Sheila Scolaro, a 21-yearold plant science junior at UF, one of the best parts of the holidays isnt decorating a Christmas tree. Its watching thousands of green poinsettias burst into a sea of red, pink, orange, white and burgundy. UFs Environmental Horticulture Club will host its 17th annual Poinsettia Show and Sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and 8 Hall on Hull Road. The sale will feature 10 benches displaying a total of 4,000 poinsettia plants, with average prices falling between $10 to $23, Scolaro said. The presidential poinsettias, which are about 4 feet tall, will sell for up to $75. More than 30 types of poinsettias will be offered at the sale, Scolaro said, and a display will give customers ideas on ways to use the different-sized plants. She said her favorite part of working with the plants is watching them change color. Within about a weeks time, the greenhouse goes from a sea of green to a palette of colors, Scolaro said. Club president Maxwell Mer cer, a 20-year-old plant science junior, said the club receives poinsettia liners in early August from breeders in California, Ger many and Holland. Students prepare the plants by potting, pinching, watering and spacing the poinsettias, Mercer said. The proceeds from the sale will go toward an international trip for the students in the Environmental Horticulture Club, Mercer said. dents attend a national agriculture competition at Auburn University next year. Mercer said he is excited to talk to customers and tell them about the work the club has put into producing the show and sale.

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff Writer Coach Billy Donovan may have to once again test out a new starting lineup. Forward Erik Murphy is dealing with a hip pointer and has not practiced since facing Marquette on Thursday, Donovan said on Monday. Murphys status for Wednesdays game against Florida State remains unclear. I dont know what is going to happen to the starting lineup right now, Donovan said. I would say Erik, based on what he is able to do now may have something to do with the starting lineups. Murphy missed practice on Nov. 12 because of a migraine. Still, he started against Wisconsin two days later and posted 24 points and eight rebounds in UFs 74-56 win. Murphys injury gives Patric Young a chance to move back into the starting lineup after coming off the bench in Floridas 82-49 win against Marquette on Thursday. Young was held out of the lineup displaying a poor attitude during Wednesdays practice. start of the year on Thursday. Young recorded 10 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks off the bench. Donovan said the Young is taking his punishment in stride and showing improvements in practice. Patric has responded really well, and I am happy with the way hes responded not only in the game, (but) hes responded really well in practice, Donovan said. Thats what he needs to do. He practiced very well yesterday and affected our team in a really positive way. If Murphy misses Wednesdays game, the Gators will have to play a man down for the third time. Florida Wilbekin because of a suspension. Casey Prather missed the seasons cussions suffered during preseason practices. After enduring multiple lineup changes, Florida believes it can handle another one. What has been great about our team so far this year is weve played with guys out, Mike Rosario said. I feel like everyone is prepared. We were without a couple guys during the season already, so I feel like we know already how to do it.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Writer When the Gators departed Gainesville en route to Michigan on Friday, freshman Sydney Moss was not with the team. Instead, she was with her family in Kentucky, mourning the passing of her grandfather, Frank Offutt. Offutt, 73, passed away Wednesday following complications from surgery to treat Pure Autonomic Failure. For Moss, the loss was especially painful. Sydney is the daughter of San Francisco 49ers receiver Randy Moss, who began playing in the NFL in 1998. ure in Sydneys life during Randys absence. ence, Sydney said of Offutt earlier this season. He always told me I could make it. Moss reached Michigan in time to play in Floridas 5953 loss on Saturday. She arrived early Satur day morning and was driven directly to UFs pregame shootaround. Moss made 5 of 15 shots, scoring 11 points and pullAmanda Butler was proud of the way Moss played through grief. We knew that [Moss] wasnt going to play as much, but when I talked to her right before the game, it was just give us whatever she had, Butler said. If she didnt have anything, that was okay. We all understood that. Moss returned to Kentucky following the game. She missed practice Monday but is expected back tonight when Florida (5-3) faces Troy (15) at 7 in the OConnell Center. Moss credits Offutt with providing the support that helped launch her basketball career. Papa, as she affectionately refers to him, was her to pick up a basketball. When I got older, like eighth grade, he was the one that told me I could go somewhere with this basketball career, Moss said. My whole AAU season, he was there. He would travel with me anywhere. When Moss returns to the team, her second family will be ready to help ease the pain, redshirt freshman Car lie Needles said. We knew how close [Moss] was to her grandpa, and every game we play she is going to be playing for her grandpa, Needles said. We are going to help her.Freshman coping with WOMENS BASKETBALLMoss

Remember who you are. The words keep him motivated, hungry. He has promised himself he will never abandon his game again. In the spring of 2011 at USC, a few bad shots turned into a few bad port system was a six-hour plane ride away in Cooper City 2,713 miles east of California. Vogel hit rock bottom in his play, and the lack of support from his coaching staff put his game in the gutter. He was not the player so many were accustomed to seeing. Vogel is as thin as a nine iron but as competitive as Rory McIlroy. His love of competition fueled a successful high school career during which he was named the 2007 and 2008 South Florida Sun-Sentinel Boys Golfer of the Year. In his senior season, Vogel led Plantation American Heritage to the Florida Class 1A Tournament after winning the individual district and regional titles. He earned a scholarship to USC. As a freshman he led the Trojans with a 72.1 stroke average and He was a freshman All-American in 2009-10. I felt really good about where things were, Vogel said. He continued strong during his on the team in stroke average. Two months later, Vogel was set to pick up where he left off. He still had not won a tournament, but he was on the cusp. He led USC at one of the nations most competitive venues, the U.S. Collegiate Championship in Alpharetta, of 78. The rest of the year seemed set up for Vogel. However, Vogel struggled dur ing the spring. His stat line was a punching bag for criticism. I was still playing well and I dont know, something happened, Vogel said. I started to play bad. I came back and kind of lost a little bit lost my game. once. He then carded a 1-under 215 at the Amer Ari Invitational. He folthe USC Collegiate Invitational almost a month later. By April, Vogel Suddenly, much more than a of Vogel getting back to the top. His coach was eager to change his swing. He didnt touch me when I was playing well, Vogel said. But what coach is going to touch you when youre playing at your best? Chris Zambri, a former USC AllPac-10 player, was considered one of the nations better swing coaches. Zambri was a six-year Nationwide Tour veteran. His experience led Vogel to believe he could help him reach the next level in his career. Instead, Zambri started digging ure out why his game fell apart. As soon as I started to not play at my best, he tried to change my swing, Vogel said. He tried to make me cut the ball when Im a natural drawer. Vogel was comfortable hitting draws, and his controlled shot that moves right to left had been successful before. But Zambri wanted Vogel to cut the ball the opposite of his customary stroke. The change did not lead to an improvement. In seven tournament appearances from February to June, Vogels and 39th in his next six events. He closed the year with a 113thonships at Karsten Creek. He fell to 139th in the nation by seasons end. Going through all these problems and youre 3,000 miles away from home, its tough, Vogel said. Talking over the phone with my parents could only do so much. With his game suffering a setback, he needed out. I didnt want to transfer initially because I was really close with the team, Vogel said. I felt like I was quitting. Still, Vogel requested his release from USC in the summer of 2011. Vogel said he transferred to Flor ida to be closer to his family, who lives in Cooper City, and because of his relationship with coach Buddy Alexander. We recruited T.J., and sometimes when you recruit a young man, you just grow very fond of him as an individual, Alexander said. He was a genuine kid. Before arriving on campus, Vogel had a handful of long talks with his parents. He wanted to change. I didnt battle adversity well out in Los Angeles, Vogel said. I made a promise to myself when I got here that I was going to do everything I could to be the best I could be. He started by regaining his con his mother, Jamie told him not to lose sight of his ability. He had to believe in it again. And so he did. In his junior season, Vogel notched victories at the Charleston Shootout in Hollywood, S.C., and the SeaBest Invitational in Ponte Vedra. He led UF in stroke average (71.3) and helped the Gators to three tournament wins. He was also sePING All-Southeast region. Coach Alexanders morale boosts and positive reinforcement gave Vogel the edge he needed to consistently play at a high level. Hes always reminding me how good I am, Vogel said. With Buddy, its always positive and hes always lifting me up. You need a coach who is there to support you when things are going rough, and thats the biggest difference between Buddy and the other coaching staff. Vogel has thrived since joining Florida. His success has led to recognition when he walks in to local restaurants. Nobody cares about golf in Southern Cal, Vogel said. Not too many people are even involved with the school. Here, people know me. Ill walk into a restaurant and people will be like Hey, you are T.J. And Im like Yeah? The recognition is deserved. In fall and leads UF in stroke average. His 71.3 scoring average his junior season ranks eighth best in the programs history. His body of work speaks for itself and says volumes about his potential.

No matter how great a players natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain success: work. Vogel has done just that. His toughness and aptitude have shined since he transferred to Florida one on what his mother has always told him. Remember who you are.

Hes a really good friend of mine. I know when he took over that program, I told him if there was anything I could do, I would be more than willing to help, even though I was moving on to Louisville. Reports surfaced last week linking Strong to the head coaching vacancy at Auburn. Strong denied rumors that alleged he had been interviewed.
