FORECAST 2 OPINIONS 6 CLASSIFIEDS 10 CROSSWORD 11 SPORTS 1366 /40 David Carr / Alligator StaffPedro Bravo walks into a case management hearing Tuesday at the Alachua County Courthouse. Bravo, 19, is accused of kidnapping and murdering Christian Aguilar. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterPedro Bravo emerged from a side door in courtroom 3C Tuesday, his hair shorter than in his mugshot from last year. He wore a red jumpsuit and glanced quickly around the packed courtroom. About 50 feet away, the Aguilar family members sat in the audience as they watched the accused killer of their 18-year-old son, Christian Aguilar, take the lectern as part of a case management hearing at the Alachua County Courthouse. Bravo, 19, stands accused of his connection to the murder of Christian Aguilar, a UF freshman who went missing in September. In October, two hunters found Christian Aguilars half-buried body in a Levy County hunting area about 40 miles southwest of Gainesville. As of Tuesday, Bravo is charged with premeditated murder, mishandling dead human lying to police, kidnapping, destroying evidence and poisoning food, water or medicine with the intent to kill, according to jail records. Although the case management hearing led the case to be rescheduled for another hearing in April, Carlos Aguilar said making the journey from Doral to attend Bravos court hearings is a way to show the court he and his family are still interested in the case. For me, its important to be at every single one, he said. That shows him that we are going to be here, and were still looking for justice. Carlos Aguilar said his family has not spoken to Bravo or his family since Bravos arrest Sept. 24. Seeing him at Tuesdays hearing reminded Carlos Aguilar about his sons death.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 SEC COMPETITION RACHEL KURLANDAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough some die-hard football fans watch the Super Bowl for the love of the game, others watch it purely for the commercials. Doritos is hosting a competition, the Crash the Super Bowl College Challenge, to see which SEC school votes the most for its favorite Doritos commercial. Whichever school casts the most votes will win a $25,000 concert on its campus, according a news release about the contest.

College kids are fans of Dor itos, and they love concerts, she said, so its just mixing the two and creating a friendly competition. Jeff Klein, Frito-Lay senior marketing director, said college students are a great demographic to target for this contest because the voting process is done through Facebook, which is the best place to get their attention. Because each school has different musical tastes, he said the $25,000 prize can be used to improve a previously scheduled concert or to create a brand new concert.

Rick Scott announced last week that Floridas unemployment rate dropped to 8 percent during December, the lowest rate since November 2008. The changes we are making to improve our states business climate are helping Florida families pursue the American dream, Scott said. The states unemployment rate according to a news release from the Sarah Hamersma, assistant professor for UFs Department of Economics, said the decrease in the states unemployment rate follows a nationwide trend. Almost every state has had improvements in the last year, she said. Florida had the second largest drop in unemployment in the last year, behind Nevada, she said. For 29 consecutive months, Flor ida has experienced positive annual job growth, according to the release. With Florida home sales remaining strong and economic growth trends up across the state, consumer year high, according to UFs ConBy 2018, Florida is expected to create more than 900,000 new jobs, according to the Florida Economic Estimating Conference.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffStudent Sen. Morgan Vollrath expresses his discontent Tuesday at the Reitz Union after the Senate voted to table his election codes reform bill until next week. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterThe Student Senate voted Tuesday to table a bill regarding election code reform for next weeks meeting. However, after the meeting, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said she will create a temporary committee to look at the issues raised in the bill. She suggested creating the committee during the meeting, which would be lead by Sen. Cory Yeffet and Sen. Morgan Vollrath. But Vollrath refused. They never came forward Vollrath said after the meeting. The bill, which Vollrath authored, proposed to remove restrictions about campaigning in the election codes. The way the codes read now restrict campaigning to a week and have vague language, Vollrath said. After the meeting, he said the changes focused on the wording to become more strict regarding individual actions related to a candidate or party during campaigning. Sen. Matt Pesek, one of the bills sponsors, said the bill stands for freedom of speech. This bill will clear up those problems and be a victory for said. The changes would not be in effect for the upcoming Spring elections, but rather the Fall 2013 elections. Bonarrigo said she was in favor of the bill and wanted the codes reform at once, not split up between sessions. Lets get them one and After the meeting, she said she will reach out to the Senate for another co-chairperson, as she wants the committee to include both the Students Party and Swamp Party members. Vollrath is a Students Party senator, and Yeffet is a Swamp Party senator. During the meeting, the Senate unanimously passed bills that require the Senate to be pointments for executive cabitions, assistant supervisor of elections and any election commission. The body also unanimously passed a referendum to be on the Spring elections ballot Feb. 19 and Feb. 20. The non-binding referendum will gauge student opinion on Gainesville bars to close at 3 a.m. but stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. Contact Colleen Wright at cwright@alligator.org.Student Senate discusses, tables election code reform billPOlLITICsS BILLY KENNEDYAlligator Contributing WriterGov.

In a statement Thursday, Scott said he wants to ensure we do whatever possible to improve our election system from the stateScotts proposal also called for more earlyvoting locations and reducing ballot lengths, including shorter descriptions of constitutional amendments. Daniel Smith, a UF political science professor, said hes skeptical about Scotts proposal. It remains to be seen if Gov.

The report found that black and Hispanic voters were nearly twice as likely as white voters to have their provisional ballots rejected.

While long lines didnt plague most Alachua County precincts in 2012, Carpenter said, history showed that residents would have used extra early-voting days to cast ballots. Had we had more early-voting days, we would have had more people take advantage Having more early-voting days can relieve some of the stress placed on voting precincts during elections, and, Carpenter said, having more early-voting days is more important than having longer early-voting days.Gov.

Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus is putting together a proposal for gender-inclusive or gender-neutral housing, which means a student could live in on-campus housing with any other student, regardless of his or her gender. The coalition will present the proposal to the administration in two weeks. If a student does not feel comfortable with gender-inclusive housing, then he or she can still opt for traditional housing, said Marla Munro, president of Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus. We want to give transgender students a place where they can feel safe UF womens studies junior. Munro said other schools, like University of California, Berkeley, have had positive feedback about their genderneutral housing.

The investigation started after a group of friends found Roxie E. Scott-Kotb, 63, of 3301 Cove apartment Jan. 13, GPD spokesman Ben Tobias said. Police determined that Scott-Kotb was dead in her apartment for more than a week, and her 2007 Mercury Milan and purse were missing, Tobias said. Family members told police that Scott lived with Scott-Kotb until she kicked him out three months ago when she noticed he misused her credit cards, Tobias said. just after midnight, according to the release. The group in the car told police that Scott let them use the car in exchange for crack cocaine. Later that day, investigators found that Scott stole a car from his workplace, Gator City Motor, on the 1700 block of North Main Street, according to the release. Police continued the investigation and learned that Scott used Scott-Kotbs credit cards and traveled to New York. Detectives issued an arrest warrant for Scott Jan. 15, Tobias said.

The deputy saw the cars temporary license plate was altered with marker, and after running the correct plate number through a police computer, he learned the car had been reported stolen.

Bey-tter Than You: Calm down about lip-synching, dummiesThere are four words we should never have to say: Back off Beyonc, everyone. Apparently, news got out that she lip-synched to a track of the national anthem during President Barack Obamas inauguration. According to the New York Times, the singer decided at the last minute to record a version of the song. We dont know why, said Master Sgt. Kristin duBois, the spokeswoman for the Marine Band. But that is what we were instructed to do, so that is what we did. Its not because Beyonc cant sing. We all know Beyonc can sing. We all know the Marine Band can play. Its not uncommon for performers to prerecord their tracks or to use backing tracks for events like the inauguration ceremony in case something happens or the weather is bad. The entire ceremony was performed live with the exception of the national anthem. Look up the broadcast of her performance, and then compare it with a video recording from the perspective of a spectator from the crowd at the inauguration. Some of the Jumbotrons projecting the speeches and performances may have malfunctioned, which distorted most of the sound. Remember halfway through her performance, when Beyonc took out her earpiece to the surprise and delight of viewers? Guess the earpiece was super unnecessary. Now, heres the thing: Back off Beyonc, everyone. According to The Washington Post, even Whitney Houstons performance at the 1991 Super Bowl was lip-synched. Ricky Minor, the band leader on the Tonight Show and Houstons musical director at the time, said, In a crowd that large and loud, it was impossible for Houston to hear herself, according to an ABC News article. Though she did sing, it was her pre-recorded voice that the audience heard, according to the article. Are we better than Whitney Houston and Beyonc? Absolutely not. Lets not judge fabulous ladies because they played it better-safe-than-sorry. Vulture published an article this week titled: Who Betrayed America More: Lance Armstrong or Beyonc? itself very seriously something these opinions pages also attempt to get across at times. But the reaction to and disappointment in Beyoncs misstep is so silly. Why are so many people upset with her performance choice? Its not an issue. It means people will always want to complain about whatever they feel like picking apart that day. How about we leave Queen Bey alone for two seconds and snap back to reality, folks. Band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn said Beyonc wasnt comfortable performing without a rehearsal, and I wasnt comfortable with that either, according to The Washingtonian. We always knew that was a possibility. Chill out, everyone. This will not affect any of your lives in any adverse manner whatsoever. If youre a little miffed about it, we politely ask that you get over it.From gun control to thumb patrolLast Friday, in its edition of Darts and Laurels, the Alligator mentioned, There were a lot of lessons to learn this week. Of course, last week passed, but I cant help but share what valuable lessons I also learned. For starters, I learned that if youre incapable of arguing with a group of people that expresses an opinion different from your own, you can publish a patronizing piece, belittling said group of people by pointing out their illiteracy, ironically. I also learned that grammar, spelling and syntax are totally fair game in a spirited debate about gun control. From now on, I will be wary of words that are popularly misspelled. Is gun control hyphenated or not? Additionally, I realized that the point of the column was Also, I ask that you leave your derisive dictionary at the door, along with your condescending crowbar. Until then, I will try my best to avoid physical altercations with grown men who maliciously enter into my apartment unannounced. A .38-caliber handgun should temporarily subdue my aggressor or so I learned. Which leads me to my next point: If your violent 6-yearold child makes a gun gesture during a harmless game of pretend, dont be surprised when you receive a call from the Politically Correct Police, telling you your child was suspended from school. Thats right. According to an article on Fox News website, Two 6-year-old boys from Maryland were suspended from school for making gun gestures during a harmless game of pretend. its kind. Last month, Rodney Lynch was suspended from his school for making the same gesture. In all honesty, I believe the teachers were right to suspend the children. Why? Because even though a 6-year-old child doesnt possess the psychological capacity to understand why making such a gesture would perturb adults, the act itself is mean. Therefore, its wrong. Furthermore, I would like to support the need for stricter, more sensible thumb control legislation. Although there is no law that can prevent every senseless act of gesturing, we have a fundamental obligation to try. Therefore, I have put together a list of practical thumb safety measures; actions to combat the thumb-obsessed culture we live in; steps that will keep guns I mean thumbs out of the hands of the obedient I mean the disobedient. First, its time we restore a ban on bully-style assault phalanges, even though a similar ban, circa 1994, was effectively ineffective. Research by a former thumb control advocate in his 1998 opus, More Thumbs, Less Crime, found no impact on pretend crime from these bans. We will Second, we must also implement a high-capacity extremities ban. As it turns out, Lynch was carrying a Pointermaster .223: a highly lethal limb that, when paired with fortunately, his school in Montgomery County had some of the most stringent laws on thumb control in the classroom. Nothing could have prevented this tragedy. will say, If thumbs hurt people, then logically, apples make teachers fat and tug-of-war causes kids to lose. They want to gin up fear. They want to eliminate thumbfree zones. And they want to increase the amount of children who are capable of concealed gesturing. This may spur a movement to oppose opposable thumbs!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Lately, weve heard a lot about the right to keep and bear arms. You probably also have heard about the right to free speech or the right to a fair trial. Some use the word right as an argument for things like health care, education or a living wage. But how do we determine whether something is a right? We can derive a theory of rights using three very important principles: the self-ownership principle, the homesteading principle and the nonaggression principle. First, the principle of self-ownership, contends that man is a rational being who has no instinctual or innate knowledge about how to survive, and therefore must actively rely on his mind and reason to live. Through reason, man exerts full control of his actions and thus has full ownership of his body. This principle is axiomatic. To argue that one does not have ownership of his body is an immediate contradiction, because one must use and control his body (his mouth, his mind, his tongue) to argue otherwise. Second, the homesteading principle states that because man has ownership of his body, if he uses his labor to produce something from land that was previously unowned (i.e., no one has a claim or title to that land), then, as John Locke argued, he mixes his labor with the land and thus extends ownership to the it and what he produces from it. can dispose of everything he produces, because no one else has a just claim. But to arrive at a principle of rights, one must recognize that man is also a social being. While it is possible for man to survive using only the and likely an impoverished and short life. For man to thrive, he must interact with others. A right, therefore, is an ethical concept that relates to how men engage and interact with each other. By establishing rights, we can easily distinguish what each member of society owns and facilitate the means for voluntary trade and commerce. Without clear property rights, everyone can lay claim to everything, which leads to turmoil, strife and war. Let us imagine a society with two people: A and B. Let us say A asserts that he owns Bs property. For an ethical principle that relates to mans nature to be valid, it must be true for all individuals. In this scenario, As assertion that he owns the property of B is not universal, because A claims the existence of property rights for himself while denying B the same rights, ultimately making B a slave to A. As Murray Rothbard argues, this leaves B in a category of sub-humanity and makes the principle invalid. sion: that no man may initiate force against the property or person of another. Aggression against another individual violates his or her nature as a free, productive being who must pursue certain ends to live. Any aggression against a mans property constitutes an aggression against his person. Therefore, any initiation of aggression against mans life, liberty or property is ethically unjust. From these principles, we can understand how we derive mans right to his life, his liberty and his property. In next weeks column, I will apply these ideas to show how one determines whether something constitutes a right or is simply a misuse of the term. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in Political Communication. His column appears on Wednesdays.Do I really have a right? Part IColumn Justin Hayesopinions@alligator.org Student loans are near and dear to all our hearts. You like them a lot more than I do at this point I promise. Making payments is not nearly as fun as receiving refunds. Refunds end up as new laptops or tablets, nights out with friends and a Spring Break trip we never forget. Repayment means box wine at home instead of bar vacation. The student loan debt tally is soaring higher and seemingly has no end in sight. Colleges and universities have little incentive to truly control prices because there are so many people a degree. We have been socialized to believe and think that everyone should get a college degree. Student loans exist to make that a reality. We thought the same about owning a home, and sub-prime lending made that a possibility. The end result was, and still is, a huge disaster. Borrowers could borrow far more money than their home was worth with little correlation to their ability to repay. Financing a college education is no different. Federal student loans are not based on your ability to repay. You can borrow the same amount of money for a degree that could land you a job making $35,000 as you could for one that could allow you to earn $75,000. We should put the blame on the university for charging the same price for those two degrees because they dont have the same economic value. We all decide what we want to study, and Im not suggesting that one is better or more important than the other; I mention it only because we need to make smart According to the university, the cost to attend the University of Toledo with no grants or scholarships and live on campus is $23,108 a year. That is $93,432 for a four-year degree. That is an enormous monthly payment to make after graduation, even you work. And that debt isnt like other debts you have or will incur later you own it forever. It is almost impossible to discharge a student loan in bankruptcy, and the lenders dont play by the same rules as other creditors. They can garnish your wages, take your tax refunds, take a portion of your social security or the social security of your cosigner and the list goes on. The good news is federal student loans have far more options for help than their private counterparts. So please avoid private loans if at all possible. One of the biggest advantages is loan forgiveness (not for private loans) if you work in public service. This option allows for graduates to take jobs in the public sector that typically dont pay as well as private sector jobs and have the balance of their loans forgiven after meeting certain requirements. As a bankruptcy attorney, the number of people I see with unmanageable student loan debt is staggering and frightening. In almost every case, they borrowed far more money arts majors. I am talking about teachers, attorneys, accountants and even doctors and engineers. Even if they are lucky enough to get a job with a high salary, the student loan payment is equally high. Filing bankruptcy isnt as easy as it used to be, so now they may not qualify even if student loans were dischargeable. Do yourself and your family a huge favor, and borrow responsibly. Dont borrow more than you have to. Work part time, and use that money for rent and Spring Break not student loan money. You have options. Do some research before you sign any loan documents. your parents or someone you trust who understands are getting yourself into. Your education is the door to a bright, and successful future and being as responsible as possible now will make sure that paying for that education doesnt devastate your future. Good luck! Troy M.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffRowing For AwarenessUF business junior Erica LaVoy, 20, rows on Turlington Plaza on Tuesday afternoon. LaVoy participated in the fundraiser Row Across Florida to raise money and recruit students to the Florida Crew team. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterIt was 4:44 p.m. Friday when Ryan Jones realized he had a missed call and voicemail on his phone from his former professor, friend and ESPN freelancer Steve Johnson. Without hesitation, Jones, a 23-year-old UF journalism senior, called Johnson, who laid down the plan to Jones, asking him to photograph Notre Dame football player Manti Teo during ESPNs exclusive interview in Bradenton the published its story about his girlfriend hoax. Within 15 minutes, Jones was on the road with a twoand-a-half hour drive to Bradenton, armed with a Nikon D600 and two lenses. Jones entered the meeting at 8 p.m. with ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap and shook hands with Teo and his consultant at the IMG academy, a private training institute. A few minutes into the inter view and only three pictures taken, Jones heard Teo ner vously ask if he was going to be shooting the whole time. It was his cue to leave. After almost two hours, Jones was invited to come back into the interview. He took 133 pictures. After the interview, ESPN producer Shawn Fitzgerald ordered three boxes of pizza. He gave a box of pepperoni pizza to Jones, who shared a slice with Teo. The two enjoyed their pizza in a confer ence room while watching the ESPN broadcast on a TV, which was being taped across the street. After the pizza, Jones headed back to Gainesville. He arrived at 4:30 a.m. after a nap in a Walgreens parking lot. Jones, who was a student in Johnsons visual journalism class in the Fall, worked with Johnson at the Beef O Bradys Bowl in December. Johnson, who was in Boston Friday night on vacation, said he chose Jones because he was independent [Jones] was in my class last semester, and he kicked butt, Johnson said. Since Friday night, Jones pictures have appeared on about 20 websites, including Sports Illustrated, The New ton Post. Jones wrote about his experience on his blog, Ryan Jones Photography, at about midnight Monday. With a little help from a friend, Jones Twitter followers jumped from 30 to 100, and his blogs views began to skyrocket to the thousands. Ive gotten a lot of love from fellow photographers and journalists, Jones said. Contact Colleen Wright at cwright@alligator.org.UF student photographs Manti THE COVERAGE SPARKED GLOBAL DISCUSSION. KAITLYN KRAMERAlligator Contributing WriterSixty-six times a day. Thats the amount of rape cases reported to the Indian government in 2011. And its suspected that thousands go unreported annually due to social stigma. The Dec. 16 gang rape of a 23-yearold woman in New Delhi brought media attention and outrage about womens daily struggles in India. The outcry has hit home at UF, where many reacted to the event. Daniela Sanchez said people push the story away because they feel powerless, but if people made the situation known, then authorities would take notice. It makes me angry the idea that I am a human being and the only thing that sets me apart from people living and going through this is that I was born in a different place, said the 19-year-old sociology sophomore. Sanchez wants to encourage students to become more involved with humanitarian causes on campus, such as UNICEF and International Justice Mission. Leela Kumaran, a project coordinator for UFs College of Education who grew up in India, said there needs to be a cultural understanding. She said her initial reaction was horror, but she wasnt surprised. Women are supposed to be invisible there this is something that is common, Kumaran said. She said it will take a few genwomen in India, though she hopes the conversation does not die down. Its misogynistic in many ways, but the problem doesnt stop at just India, said 20-year-old UF psychology junior Jasmine Esmailbegui. America, as well as many other countries, remain dominated by notions of masculinity and unequal treatment of women. Kelsey Harclerode expressed her hope that media coverage reignites a global conversation. The outrage in the U.S. cannot stop at nations beyond our borders, said the 21-year-old UF political science and womens studies junior. We can simply question why we live in a society that cares more about the length of a womans skirt than justice for a rape victim.Teo

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Softball cracks rankingsFlorida will begin 2013 ranked No. 14 in the USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Preseason Poll. The Frenchman Florent Diep has adjusted to U.S. college tennis during his second season as a Gator. See story, page 15. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterAfter inconsistency, missed practices and a lack of accountability put a damper on his junior year, Mike Rosario knew he had to change in the offseason. Coach Billy Donovan knew it, too. Although he didnt call it an ultimatum, Donovan sent Rosario a clear message: The ball is in your court. It was pretty clear. You need to practice every day, you need to play the right way, and you need to take care of your responsibilities off the court, Donovan said, imitating his discussions with Rosario. If you cant do those three things, Im not going to play you. Rosario has played by Donovans rules successfully this season. The redshirt senior guard ranks second on the team with 12.5 points per game this year after averaging 6.6 points last season. His 46.1 percent shooting clip is a career best. Rosario didnt earn a start in 2011-12 but has started 15 games this season. His playing time has more than doubled from 14.4 minutes per game to 29.3 minutes per contest. The New Jersey native has also stayed relatively healthy this year. After missing six games and 25 practices last season with back, leg and hip injuries, Rosario has missed only one contest, due to a left ankle sprain. I knew that something was going to have to change in order for me to play the way my teammates need me to perform, Rosario said. I felt like, by me taking on that challenge, that [Donovan] basically put my back against the wall. I feel like Ive been doing a great job responding to it. Before transferring to Florida following his sophomore season, PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterSydney Moss and assistant coaches David Lowery and Murriel Page are alone. The freshman and her two coaches are running drills in an empty OConnell Center on Tuesday afternoon. Moss brushes off Page, who simulates a screen being set, takes a pass from Lowery and shoots a mid-range jump shot. She repeats this move again and again, each time with Lowery urging her to remain balanced, square her shoulders and follow through with the shot. One attempt bounces off the rim and out, much to Moss dismay, but she continues her repetitions. She focuses on her release point, her footwork and the instructions being shouted to her from the pair of coaches. Im struggling right now offensively, Moss said. The ball just rims in and out. My layups go in and out. Thats why we have individual [workouts]. Southeastern Conference play has been unkind to Moss, who is one of four freshmen who regularly contributes for the Gators. In 14 non-conference games, she averaged 11.6 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Those numbers have declined to 6.4 points on 22.9 percent shooting The struggles began in Floridas conference opener, a 76-69 loss to Kentucky on Jan. 3. Moss, who was named the 2012 Gatorade Kentucky Girls Basketball Player of the Year while at Boone County (Ky.) High, was making a homecoming of sorts. Boone is about 70 miles north of Memorial Coliseum, and Moss had many of her family and friends in attendance. However, she toiled through an unsatisfying performance. The freshman shot 0 of 10 Gator. She turned the ball over three times, never gaining any rhythm during her 20 minutes It was frustrating, Moss said. Just one of those games. Poor shooting has continued to plague Moss. She has yet to shoot better than 40 percent in a conference JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterLess than one week after defensive coordinator Dan Quinn left the Gators for the NFL, coach Will Florida hired defensive line coach Brad Lawing from Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina on Tuesday. Lawing will serve as assistant head coach and work alongside Bryant Young as co-defensive line coach. Im excited to have the opportunity to work with coach Muschamp and the entire Gator coaching staff, Lawing said in a statement. Coach Muschamp and I share the same philosophical beliefs defensively. Lawing spent 17 years on the Gamecocks staff in two different stints, the second of which began in 2006. Other stops during his coaching career include Michigan State, North Carolina and Appalachian State. Lawing has coached three All-America defensive linemen in his career: Julian Peterson of the Spartans and Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney of the round NFL draft selections. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said during a December teleconference that if Clowney was eligible for this years draft, the sophomore would be the No. 1 overall pick. Lawing also recruited four-time Pro Bowler John Abraham to play at South Carolina. His track record speaks for itself, Muschamp said of Lawing in a statement. His nearly three decades of experience coaching defensive linemen, his familiarity with the SEC and our shared philosophiMuschamp added Lawing to his staff only six days after Quinn accepted an offer to become the Seahawks defensive coordinator. The position opened up when Gus Bradley took the Jaguars head-coaching job on Jan. 16. Muschamp promoted special teams coordinator D.J. Durkin to defensive coordinator shortly after Quinn signed a three-year deal with Seattle reportedly worth $5.7 million. Part of my job is anticipating when things are going to happen, Muschamp said on Friday. Obviously, with Dans relationship with the Seattle or ganization, I knew when Gus Bradley got a job there would be interest on their part and possibly some interest on his part. When Quinn received the call, Muschamp acted quickly and tabbed Durkin.

promoting UFs third-year special teams coordinator will help maintain stability in the Gators defensive scheme. (Durkin) understands everything, and our systems pretty good, Muschamp said. Were going to continue to be really good. [Quinn] had never called defenses two years ago until he showed up at Florida, and he did a pretty good job in two years. And D.J. hasnt either, and were going to be good. Were While Durkins promotion was convenient, Muschamp picked the 35-year-old coach to replace Quinn for the same reasons he elected to retain Durkin from former UF coach Urban Meyers staff. [Durkin] is very bright, smart, energetic (and) does a great job with our players, Muschamp said on Friday. Obviously, you see the results he had on special teams. Theyre outstanding. Great teacher. He sees the big picture of the game and understands what it takes to be successful. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

AA undre LLarrow / AAlligator StaffMike Rosario (3) attempts a shot during Floridas 83-52 win against Missouri on Saturday in the OConnell Center. Guard making strides on both sides of Rosario was Rutgers go-to option on offense. From 2008-10 with the Scarlet Knights, Rosario led his team in scor ing with 16.4 points per game but shot only 38.4 percent. He averaged almost If you looked at his statistics at Rutgers, yes, he scored a lot of points, but he was really a high-volume shooter, Donovan said. When he plays the right way, he has really good vision (and) is a really good passer. When he makes simple, really good plays, it makes our team better. It makes him a much better, more effective player on After sitting out 2010-11 because of NCAA transfer rules, Rosario lacked decision-making skills on offense dur ing his junior year. But the 6-foot-3 its. According to KenPom.com, Rosarios offensive rating ranked outside of the nations top 500 during each of 117.2, which ranks 183rd in the country. Although Rosario still struggles with ball security, Donovan said the guard has made strides on defense. Last year, he was really a weak defender and wasnt really committed to or saw the value in it, Donovan said. He continues to impress and continues to get better. But Im not sure Mike has ever done this for an entire year in college. So we obviously have a long way to go, and I want him to embrace that. Rosarios mental approach in practice has also improved. He just comes in every day and works, senior forward Erik Murphy said. He hasnt had any lapses, especially recently. ... Hes in the weight room a little extra, trying to get his body right. With No. 8 Florida (14-2, 4-0 SEC) heading into Athens, Ga., to face Georgia tonight at 8, Rosario hopes to games, he has averaged 15 points on 51.2 percent shooting. As he continues to experience sucseason behind him. Last year, I felt like in my play I didnt really bring nothing to the team, Rosario said. This is my chance to really sit and listen to what [Donovan] has to say and give myself to [Donovan], because something special can happen out of this. ROSA ARIIO, from page 13Forward key off benchgame this season. According to wbbstate. com, Moss has posted an ef10 just once in SEC play after doing so in eight non-confer ence contests. Despite the inconsistency, Moss continues to be a critical member of coach Amanda Butlers rotation. She has started seven games but typically functions the bench. Butler, who played four years at Florida, understands as a freshman. She has pressed Moss to continue working through adversity. Thats a lesson all our freshmen have had to learn, and Sydney included, Butler said. The competition you are going to face is very good the best you have ever seen. Theyre going to take things away from you. Weve got to be able to get over that, and you have to be able to get over that quickly because if you pull that negative energy into the next play, then your chances of success are diminishing immediately. With senior Jennifer George nursing an injured right shoulder and the schedule unrelenting, Floridas success, in part, hinges on Moss ability to rebound from her recent slump. Its just motivation, Moss said. I can do a lot better. Contact Phillip Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.

Bravo, 19, is accused of kidnapping and murdering Christian Aguilar. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterPedro Bravo emerged from a side door in courtroom 3C Tuesday, his hair shorter than in his mugshot from last year. He wore a red jumpsuit and glanced quickly around the packed courtroom. About 50 feet away, the Aguilar family members sat in the audience as they watched the accused killer of their 18-year-old son, Christian Aguilar, take the lectern as part of a case management hearing at the Alachua County Courthouse. Bravo, 19, stands accused of his connection to the murder of Christian Aguilar, a UF freshman who went missing in September. In October, two hunters found Christian Aguilars half-buried body in a Levy County hunting area about 40 miles southwest of Gainesville. As of Tuesday, Bravo is charged with premeditated murder, mishandling dead human lying to police, kidnapping, destroying evidence and poisoning food, water or medicine with the intent to kill, according to jail records. Although the case management hearing led the case to be rescheduled for another hearing in April, Carlos Aguilar said making the journey from Doral to attend Bravos court hearings is a way to show the court he and his family are still interested in the case. For me, its important to be at every single one, he said. That shows him that we are going to be here, and were still looking for justice. Carlos Aguilar said his family has not spoken to Bravo or his family since Bravos arrest Sept. 24. Seeing him at Tuesdays hearing reminded Carlos Aguilar about his sons death.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffStudent Sen. Morgan Vollrath expresses his discontent Tuesday at the Reitz Union after the Senate voted to table his election codes reform bill until next week. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterThe Student Senate voted Tuesday to table a bill regarding election code reform for next weeks meeting. However, after the meeting, Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said she will create a temporary committee to look at the issues raised in the bill. She suggested creating the committee during the meeting, which would be lead by Sen. Cory Yeffet and Sen. Morgan Vollrath. But Vollrath refused. They never came forward Vollrath said after the meeting. The bill, which Vollrath authored, proposed to remove restrictions about campaigning in the election codes. The way the codes read now restrict campaigning to a week and have vague language, Vollrath said. After the meeting, he said the changes focused on the wording to become more strict regarding individual actions related to a candidate or party during campaigning. Sen. Matt Pesek, one of the bills sponsors, said the bill stands for freedom of speech. This bill will clear up those problems and be a victory for said. The changes would not be in effect for the upcoming Spring elections, but rather the Fall 2013 elections. Bonarrigo said she was in favor of the bill and wanted the codes reform at once, not split up between sessions. Lets get them one and After the meeting, she said she will reach out to the Senate for another co-chairperson, as she wants the committee to include both the Students Party and Swamp Party members. Vollrath is a Students Party senator, and Yeffet is a Swamp Party senator. During the meeting, the Senate unanimously passed bills that require the Senate to be pointments for executive cabitions, assistant supervisor of elections and any election commission. The body also unanimously passed a referendum to be on the Spring elections ballot Feb. 19 and Feb. 20.

Gators Coalition for an Inclusive Campus is putting together a proposal for gender-inclusive or gender-neutral housing, which means a student could live in on-campus housing with any other student, regardless of his or her gender. The coalition will present the proposal to the administration in two weeks.

Police determined that Scott-Kotb was dead in her apartment for more than a week, and her 2007 Mercury Milan and purse were missing, Tobias said.

Bey-tter Than You: Calm down about lip-synching, dummiesThere are four words we should never have to say: Back off Beyonc, everyone. Apparently, news got out that she lip-synched to a track of the national anthem during President Barack Obamas inauguration. According to the New York Times, the singer decided at the last minute to record a version of the song. We dont know why, said Master Sgt. Kristin duBois, the spokeswoman for the Marine Band. But that is what we were instructed to do, so that is what we did. Its not because Beyonc cant sing. We all know Beyonc can sing. We all know the Marine Band can play. Its not uncommon for performers to prerecord their tracks or to use backing tracks for events like the inauguration ceremony in case something happens or the weather is bad. The entire ceremony was performed live with the exception of the national anthem. Look up the broadcast of her performance, and then compare it with a video recording from the perspective of a spectator from the crowd at the inauguration. Some of the Jumbotrons projecting the speeches and performances may have malfunctioned, which distorted most of the sound. Remember halfway through her performance, when Beyonc took out her earpiece to the surprise and delight of viewers? Guess the earpiece was super unnecessary. Now, heres the thing: Back off Beyonc, everyone. According to The Washington Post, even Whitney Houstons performance at the 1991 Super Bowl was lip-synched. Ricky Minor, the band leader on the Tonight Show and Houstons musical director at the time, said, In a crowd that large and loud, it was impossible for Houston to hear herself, according to an ABC News article. Though she did sing, it was her pre-recorded voice that the audience heard, according to the article. Are we better than Whitney Houston and Beyonc? Absolutely not. Lets not judge fabulous ladies because they played it better-safe-than-sorry. Vulture published an article this week titled: Who Betrayed America More: Lance Armstrong or Beyonc? itself very seriously something these opinions pages also attempt to get across at times. But the reaction to and disappointment in Beyoncs misstep is so silly. Why are so many people upset with her performance choice? Its not an issue. It means people will always want to complain about whatever they feel like picking apart that day. How about we leave Queen Bey alone for two seconds and snap back to reality, folks. Band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn said Beyonc wasnt comfortable performing without a rehearsal, and I wasnt comfortable with that either, according to The Washingtonian. We always knew that was a possibility. Chill out, everyone. This will not affect any of your lives in any adverse manner whatsoever. If youre a little miffed about it, we politely ask that you get over it.From gun control to thumb patrolLast Friday, in its edition of Darts and Laurels, the Alligator mentioned, There were a lot of lessons to learn this week. Of course, last week passed, but I cant help but share what valuable lessons I also learned. For starters, I learned that if youre incapable of arguing with a group of people that expresses an opinion different from your own, you can publish a patronizing piece, belittling said group of people by pointing out their illiteracy, ironically. I also learned that grammar, spelling and syntax are totally fair game in a spirited debate about gun control. From now on, I will be wary of words that are popularly misspelled. Is gun control hyphenated or not? Additionally, I realized that the point of the column was Also, I ask that you leave your derisive dictionary at the door, along with your condescending crowbar. Until then, I will try my best to avoid physical altercations with grown men who maliciously enter into my apartment unannounced. A .38-caliber handgun should temporarily subdue my aggressor or so I learned. Which leads me to my next point: If your violent 6-yearold child makes a gun gesture during a harmless game of pretend, dont be surprised when you receive a call from the Politically Correct Police, telling you your child was suspended from school. Thats right. According to an article on Fox News website, Two 6-year-old boys from Maryland were suspended from school for making gun gestures during a harmless game of pretend. its kind. Last month, Rodney Lynch was suspended from his school for making the same gesture. In all honesty, I believe the teachers were right to suspend the children. Why? Because even though a 6-year-old child doesnt possess the psychological capacity to understand why making such a gesture would perturb adults, the act itself is mean. Therefore, its wrong. Furthermore, I would like to support the need for stricter, more sensible thumb control legislation. Although there is no law that can prevent every senseless act of gesturing, we have a fundamental obligation to try. Therefore, I have put together a list of practical thumb safety measures; actions to combat the thumb-obsessed culture we live in; steps that will keep guns I mean thumbs out of the hands of the obedient I mean the disobedient. First, its time we restore a ban on bully-style assault phalanges, even though a similar ban, circa 1994, was effectively ineffective. Research by a former thumb control advocate in his 1998 opus, More Thumbs, Less Crime, found no impact on pretend crime from these bans. We will Second, we must also implement a high-capacity extremities ban. As it turns out, Lynch was carrying a Pointermaster .223: a highly lethal limb that, when paired with fortunately, his school in Montgomery County had some of the most stringent laws on thumb control in the classroom. Nothing could have prevented this tragedy. will say, If thumbs hurt people, then logically, apples make teachers fat and tug-of-war causes kids to lose. They want to gin up fear. They want to eliminate thumbfree zones. And they want to increase the amount of children who are capable of concealed gesturing. This may spur a movement to oppose opposable thumbs!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Lately, weve heard a lot about the right to keep and bear arms. You probably also have heard about the right to free speech or the right to a fair trial. Some use the word right as an argument for things like health care, education or a living wage. But how do we determine whether something is a right? We can derive a theory of rights using three very important principles: the self-ownership principle, the homesteading principle and the nonaggression principle. First, the principle of self-ownership, contends that man is a rational being who has no instinctual or innate knowledge about how to survive, and therefore must actively rely on his mind and reason to live. Through reason, man exerts full control of his actions and thus has full ownership of his body. This principle is axiomatic. To argue that one does not have ownership of his body is an immediate contradiction, because one must use and control his body (his mouth, his mind, his tongue) to argue otherwise. Second, the homesteading principle states that because man has ownership of his body, if he uses his labor to produce something from land that was previously unowned (i.e., no one has a claim or title to that land), then, as John Locke argued, he mixes his labor with the land and thus extends ownership to the it and what he produces from it. can dispose of everything he produces, because no one else has a just claim. But to arrive at a principle of rights, one must recognize that man is also a social being. While it is possible for man to survive using only the and likely an impoverished and short life. For man to thrive, he must interact with others. A right, therefore, is an ethical concept that relates to how men engage and interact with each other. By establishing rights, we can easily distinguish what each member of society owns and facilitate the means for voluntary trade and commerce. Without clear property rights, everyone can lay claim to everything, which leads to turmoil, strife and war. Let us imagine a society with two people: A and B. Let us say A asserts that he owns Bs property. For an ethical principle that relates to mans nature to be valid, it must be true for all individuals. In this scenario, As assertion that he owns the property of B is not universal, because A claims the existence of property rights for himself while denying B the same rights, ultimately making B a slave to A. As Murray Rothbard argues, this leaves B in a category of sub-humanity and makes the principle invalid. sion: that no man may initiate force against the property or person of another. Aggression against another individual violates his or her nature as a free, productive being who must pursue certain ends to live. Any aggression against a mans property constitutes an aggression against his person. Therefore, any initiation of aggression against mans life, liberty or property is ethically unjust. From these principles, we can understand how we derive mans right to his life, his liberty and his property. In next weeks column, I will apply these ideas to show how one determines whether something constitutes a right or is simply a misuse of the term. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in Political Communication. His column appears on Wednesdays.Do I really have a right? Part IColumn Justin Hayesopinions@alligator.org Student loans are near and dear to all our hearts. You like them a lot more than I do at this point I promise. Making payments is not nearly as fun as receiving refunds. Refunds end up as new laptops or tablets, nights out with friends and a Spring Break trip we never forget. Repayment means box wine at home instead of bar vacation. The student loan debt tally is soaring higher and seemingly has no end in sight. Colleges and universities have little incentive to truly control prices because there are so many people a degree. We have been socialized to believe and think that everyone should get a college degree. Student loans exist to make that a reality. We thought the same about owning a home, and sub-prime lending made that a possibility. The end result was, and still is, a huge disaster. Borrowers could borrow far more money than their home was worth with little correlation to their ability to repay. Financing a college education is no different. Federal student loans are not based on your ability to repay. You can borrow the same amount of money for a degree that could land you a job making $35,000 as you could for one that could allow you to earn $75,000. We should put the blame on the university for charging the same price for those two degrees because they dont have the same economic value. We all decide what we want to study, and Im not suggesting that one is better or more important than the other; I mention it only because we need to make smart According to the university, the cost to attend the University of Toledo with no grants or scholarships and live on campus is $23,108 a year. That is $93,432 for a four-year degree. That is an enormous monthly payment to make after graduation, even you work. And that debt isnt like other debts you have or will incur later you own it forever. It is almost impossible to discharge a student loan in bankruptcy, and the lenders dont play by the same rules as other creditors. They can garnish your wages, take your tax refunds, take a portion of your social security or the social security of your cosigner and the list goes on. The good news is federal student loans have far more options for help than their private counterparts. So please avoid private loans if at all possible. One of the biggest advantages is loan forgiveness (not for private loans) if you work in public service. This option allows for graduates to take jobs in the public sector that typically dont pay as well as private sector jobs and have the balance of their loans forgiven after meeting certain requirements. As a bankruptcy attorney, the number of people I see with unmanageable student loan debt is staggering and frightening. In almost every case, they borrowed far more money arts majors. I am talking about teachers, attorneys, accountants and even doctors and engineers. Even if they are lucky enough to get a job with a high salary, the student loan payment is equally high. Filing bankruptcy isnt as easy as it used to be, so now they may not qualify even if student loans were dischargeable. Do yourself and your family a huge favor, and borrow responsibly. Dont borrow more than you have to. Work part time, and use that money for rent and Spring Break not student loan money. You have options. Do some research before you sign any loan documents. your parents or someone you trust who understands are getting yourself into. Your education is the door to a bright, and successful future and being as responsible as possible now will make sure that paying for that education doesnt devastate your future. Good luck! Troy M.

LaVoy participated in the fundraiser Row Across Florida to raise money and recruit students to the Florida Crew team. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterIt was 4:44 p.m. Friday when Ryan Jones realized he had a missed call and voicemail on his phone from his former professor, friend and ESPN freelancer Steve Johnson. Without hesitation, Jones, a 23-year-old UF journalism senior, called Johnson, who laid down the plan to Jones, asking him to photograph Notre Dame football player Manti Teo during ESPNs exclusive interview in Bradenton the published its story about his girlfriend hoax. Within 15 minutes, Jones was on the road with a twoand-a-half hour drive to Bradenton, armed with a Nikon D600 and two lenses. Jones entered the meeting at 8 p.m. with ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap and shook hands with Teo and his consultant at the IMG academy, a private training institute. A few minutes into the inter view and only three pictures taken, Jones heard Teo ner vously ask if he was going to be shooting the whole time. It was his cue to leave. After almost two hours, Jones was invited to come back into the interview. He took 133 pictures. After the interview, ESPN producer Shawn Fitzgerald ordered three boxes of pizza. He gave a box of pepperoni pizza to Jones, who shared a slice with Teo. The two enjoyed their pizza in a confer ence room while watching the ESPN broadcast on a TV, which was being taped across the street. After the pizza, Jones headed back to Gainesville. He arrived at 4:30 a.m. after a nap in a Walgreens parking lot. Jones, who was a student in Johnsons visual journalism class in the Fall, worked with Johnson at the Beef O Bradys Bowl in December. Johnson, who was in Boston Friday night on vacation, said he chose Jones because he was independent [Jones] was in my class last semester, and he kicked butt, Johnson said. Since Friday night, Jones pictures have appeared on about 20 websites, including Sports Illustrated, The New ton Post. Jones wrote about his experience on his blog, Ryan Jones Photography, at about midnight Monday. With a little help from a friend, Jones Twitter followers jumped from 30 to 100, and his blogs views began to skyrocket to the thousands. Ive gotten a lot of love from fellow photographers and journalists, Jones said. Contact Colleen Wright at cwright@alligator.org.UF student photographs Manti THE COVERAGE SPARKED GLOBAL DISCUSSION. KAITLYN KRAMERAlligator Contributing WriterSixty-six times a day. Thats the amount of rape cases reported to the Indian government in 2011. And its suspected that thousands go unreported annually due to social stigma. The Dec. 16 gang rape of a 23-yearold woman in New Delhi brought media attention and outrage about womens daily struggles in India. The outcry has hit home at UF, where many reacted to the event. Daniela Sanchez said people push the story away because they feel powerless, but if people made the situation known, then authorities would take notice. It makes me angry the idea that I am a human being and the only thing that sets me apart from people living and going through this is that I was born in a different place, said the 19-year-old sociology sophomore. Sanchez wants to encourage students to become more involved with humanitarian causes on campus, such as UNICEF and International Justice Mission. Leela Kumaran, a project coordinator for UFs College of Education who grew up in India, said there needs to be a cultural understanding. She said her initial reaction was horror, but she wasnt surprised. Women are supposed to be invisible there this is something that is common, Kumaran said. She said it will take a few genwomen in India, though she hopes the conversation does not die down. Its misogynistic in many ways, but the problem doesnt stop at just India, said 20-year-old UF psychology junior Jasmine Esmailbegui. America, as well as many other countries, remain dominated by notions of masculinity and unequal treatment of women. Kelsey Harclerode expressed her hope that media coverage reignites a global conversation. The outrage in the U.S. cannot stop at nations beyond our borders, said the 21-year-old UF political science and womens studies junior. We can simply question why we live in a society that cares more about the length of a womans skirt than justice for a rape victim.Teo

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Softball cracks rankingsFlorida will begin 2013 ranked No. 14 in the USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Preseason Poll. The Frenchman Florent Diep has adjusted to U.S. college tennis during his second season as a Gator. See story, page 15. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterAfter inconsistency, missed practices and a lack of accountability put a damper on his junior year, Mike Rosario knew he had to change in the offseason. Coach Billy Donovan knew it, too. Although he didnt call it an ultimatum, Donovan sent Rosario a clear message: The ball is in your court. It was pretty clear. You need to practice every day, you need to play the right way, and you need to take care of your responsibilities off the court, Donovan said, imitating his discussions with Rosario. If you cant do those three things, Im not going to play you. Rosario has played by Donovans rules successfully this season. The redshirt senior guard ranks second on the team with 12.5 points per game this year after averaging 6.6 points last season. His 46.1 percent shooting clip is a career best. Rosario didnt earn a start in 2011-12 but has started 15 games this season. His playing time has more than doubled from 14.4 minutes per game to 29.3 minutes per contest. The New Jersey native has also stayed relatively healthy this year. After missing six games and 25 practices last season with back, leg and hip injuries, Rosario has missed only one contest, due to a left ankle sprain. I knew that something was going to have to change in order for me to play the way my teammates need me to perform, Rosario said. I felt like, by me taking on that challenge, that [Donovan] basically put my back against the wall. I feel like Ive been doing a great job responding to it. Before transferring to Florida following his sophomore season, PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff WriterSydney Moss and assistant coaches David Lowery and Murriel Page are alone. The freshman and her two coaches are running drills in an empty OConnell Center on Tuesday afternoon. Moss brushes off Page, who simulates a screen being set, takes a pass from Lowery and shoots a mid-range jump shot. She repeats this move again and again, each time with Lowery urging her to remain balanced, square her shoulders and follow through with the shot. One attempt bounces off the rim and out, much to Moss dismay, but she continues her repetitions. She focuses on her release point, her footwork and the instructions being shouted to her from the pair of coaches. Im struggling right now offensively, Moss said. The ball just rims in and out. My layups go in and out. Thats why we have individual [workouts]. Southeastern Conference play has been unkind to Moss, who is one of four freshmen who regularly contributes for the Gators. In 14 non-conference games, she averaged 11.6 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Those numbers have declined to 6.4 points on 22.9 percent shooting The struggles began in Floridas conference opener, a 76-69 loss to Kentucky on Jan. 3. Moss, who was named the 2012 Gatorade Kentucky Girls Basketball Player of the Year while at Boone County (Ky.) High, was making a homecoming of sorts. Boone is about 70 miles north of Memorial Coliseum, and Moss had many of her family and friends in attendance. However, she toiled through an unsatisfying performance. The freshman shot 0 of 10 Gator. She turned the ball over three times, never gaining any rhythm during her 20 minutes It was frustrating, Moss said. Just one of those games. Poor shooting has continued to plague Moss. She has yet to shoot better than 40 percent in a conference JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterLess than one week after defensive coordinator Dan Quinn left the Gators for the NFL, coach Will Florida hired defensive line coach Brad Lawing from Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina on Tuesday. Lawing will serve as assistant head coach and work alongside Bryant Young as co-defensive line coach. Im excited to have the opportunity to work with coach Muschamp and the entire Gator coaching staff, Lawing said in a statement. Coach Muschamp and I share the same philosophical beliefs defensively. Lawing spent 17 years on the Gamecocks staff in two different stints, the second of which began in 2006. Other stops during his coaching career include Michigan State, North Carolina and Appalachian State. Lawing has coached three All-America defensive linemen in his career: Julian Peterson of the Spartans and Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney of the round NFL draft selections. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said during a December teleconference that if Clowney was eligible for this years draft, the sophomore would be the No. 1 overall pick. Lawing also recruited four-time Pro Bowler John Abraham to play at South Carolina. His track record speaks for itself, Muschamp said of Lawing in a statement. His nearly three decades of experience coaching defensive linemen, his familiarity with the SEC and our shared philosophiMuschamp added Lawing to his staff only six days after Quinn accepted an offer to become the Seahawks defensive coordinator. The position opened up when Gus Bradley took the Jaguars head-coaching job on Jan. 16. Muschamp promoted special teams coordinator D.J. Durkin to defensive coordinator shortly after Quinn signed a three-year deal with Seattle reportedly worth $5.7 million. Part of my job is anticipating when things are going to happen, Muschamp said on Friday. Obviously, with Dans relationship with the Seattle or ganization, I knew when Gus Bradley got a job there would be interest on their part and possibly some interest on his part. When Quinn received the call, Muschamp acted quickly and tabbed Durkin.

promoting UFs third-year special teams coordinator will help maintain stability in the Gators defensive scheme. (Durkin) understands everything, and our systems pretty good, Muschamp said. Were going to continue to be really good. [Quinn] had never called defenses two years ago until he showed up at Florida, and he did a pretty good job in two years. And D.J. hasnt either, and were going to be good. Were While Durkins promotion was convenient, Muschamp picked the 35-year-old coach to replace Quinn for the same reasons he elected to retain Durkin from former UF coach Urban Meyers staff. [Durkin] is very bright, smart, energetic (and) does a great job with our players, Muschamp said on Friday. Obviously, you see the results he had on special teams. Theyre outstanding. Great teacher. He sees the big picture of the game and understands what it takes to be successful. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org.

From 2008-10 with the Scarlet Knights, Rosario led his team in scor ing with 16.4 points per game but shot only 38.4 percent. He averaged almost If you looked at his statistics at Rutgers, yes, he scored a lot of points, but he was really a high-volume shooter, Donovan said. When he plays the right way, he has really good vision (and) is a really good passer. When he makes simple, really good plays, it makes our team better. It makes him a much better, more effective player on After sitting out 2010-11 because of NCAA transfer rules, Rosario lacked decision-making skills on offense dur ing his junior year. But the 6-foot-3 its. According to KenPom.com, Rosarios offensive rating ranked outside of the nations top 500 during each of 117.2, which ranks 183rd in the country. Although Rosario still struggles with ball security, Donovan said the guard has made strides on defense. Last year, he was really a weak defender and wasnt really committed to or saw the value in it, Donovan said. He continues to impress and continues to get better. But Im not sure Mike has ever done this for an entire year in college. So we obviously have a long way to go, and I want him to embrace that. Rosarios mental approach in practice has also improved. He just comes in every day and works, senior forward Erik Murphy said. He hasnt had any lapses, especially recently. ... Hes in the weight room a little extra, trying to get his body right. With No. 8 Florida (14-2, 4-0 SEC) heading into Athens, Ga., to face Georgia tonight at 8, Rosario hopes to games, he has averaged 15 points on 51.2 percent shooting. As he continues to experience sucseason behind him. Last year, I felt like in my play I didnt really bring nothing to the team, Rosario said. This is my chance to really sit and listen to what [Donovan] has to say and give myself to [Donovan], because something special can happen out of this. ROS ARIO, from page 13Forward key off benchgame this season. According to wbbstate. com, Moss has posted an ef10 just once in SEC play after doing so in eight non-confer ence contests. Despite the inconsistency, Moss continues to be a critical member of coach Amanda Butlers rotation. She has started seven games but typically functions the bench. Butler, who played four years at Florida, understands as a freshman. She has pressed Moss to continue working through adversity. Thats a lesson all our freshmen have had to learn, and Sydney included, Butler said. The competition you are going to face is very good the best you have ever seen. Theyre going to take things away from you. Weve got to be able to get over that, and you have to be able to get over that quickly because if you pull that negative energy into the next play, then your chances of success are diminishing immediately. With senior Jennifer George nursing an injured right shoulder and the schedule unrelenting, Floridas success, in part, hinges on Moss ability to rebound from her recent slump. Its just motivation, Moss said. I can do a lot better. Contact Phillip Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.
