Tonight will be the second time Pearlstein, who goes by Rachel Rose on stage, performs in Gainesville at a paid gig. The 20-year-old sociology junior played at the Swamp Restaurant in Fall. Her Swamp debut was impromptu. While 32-year-old singer Jamie Davis took a break during his set one night, Pearlstein promise I dont suck. Davis let her play, and he later referred her to a Glory Days Presents promoter, Pat Lavery, when he started looking for an acoustic opener. Lavery took the suggestion and contacted Pearlstein. Pearlstein said she never watched American Idol, but she knew who Allen was when she received the news that she would open for him. Pearlstein was so excited that she had to pull over while driving so she wouldnt crash, said Jordan Weber, a 19-year-old psychology freshman.

I usually dont play my originals for people, she said. I usually play a lot of covers because I like kind of making a new version out of a well-known song.

Never make a reservation for 20 people at a restaurant because you think you have 19 friends. Nobody has 19 closest friends they want to have dinner with. At least half of them will not show. Its awkward and crowded, and you really only get to talk to four people in hearing distance when the person you want birthday sex from is all the way at the end of the table. Dont even get me started on separate checks. Birthday plans should be simple. Spend the night with two to three people you can stand, and do something nice for yourself. Dear Friend, Everyone is stupid. The reason why we know this is due to the Internet. People who-gives-a-s--t media. A couple of decades ago, this wasnt an issue, because there was no social network to post mind-numbing stupidity on. Phones were the size of bricks. Where the hell did Zack Morris keep his dinosaur phone his back pocket? His acid-washed jeans and ass were too tight for that. He wasnt able to opinion about anything, it takes seconds to put it on the Internet without a moment to ponder if what he or she posted was the dumbest thing ever thought. Twitter is a nightmare. Remember that time Bon Iver won a Grammy and hundreds of people thought he was a science teacher and that his name was Bonnie Bear? There needs to be at least a 12-hour period to consider what you are thinking and whether it is worthy to put on any social media site, because its probably not. Dear Mediocre Advice, Why do birthdays suck so much? Dear Mediocre Advice, Why are people so stupid these days?

mal in the second half like the way it should be, Wilbekin said. Florida made 63.6 percent of its threes on 7-for-11 shooting in the second. minutes. Erik Murphy scored 13 points during the second half after Floridas defense also improved in the second half, holding UGA to only one three-point attempt. Overall, Florida allowed only 47 points, making Georgia the ninth team to score fewer than 50 against the Gators this season. You look down at the stat sheet, and theyre shooting over 50 percent from three, coach Billy Donovan said. I knew they were going to come out like that. I give our guys some credit. We made some adjustments in terms of guarding some pick and rolls, because I thought our coverage was a little bit late, and they hurt us in some of those situations. Florida remains one of two teams in the SEC that are undefeated in conference play, which Donovan credits to Wilbekins and its defense in the second half. We probably shouldve been down by a much, much larger I thought it was their nine turnovers and Wilbekins 13 points that really kept us close in the game. Our guys did an outstanding job in the second half defensively. That was key. Contact Katie Agostin at kagostin@alligator.org. receptions. He was the only tight end in the top 30. Linebackers who are strong in pass coverage are at a premium cance of the tight end. Those coverage skills arent going to abandon Jenkins unless he has to undergo serious knee surgery. The broken foot and broken thumb he suffered last season arent likely to be chronic or recurring issues. Jenkins made the right decision to leave college and avoid the risk of a career-threatening Hes the best cover linebacker in college football today, ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay said in October. Great speed and instincts and anticipation in coverage. Hes picking the right time to go to the NFL with so much focus on being able to cover in the passing game. ESPN ranked Jenkins the third-best outside linebacker in the draft and has projected him to be the second-best linebacker With a good showing at the NFL Scouting Combine on Feb. 20-26, Jenkins could solidify himself as a secondor third-round pick. Jenkins would have been taking a risk had he elected to return to a defense replacing two starters at the safety, linebacker and defensive tackle positions. Unless several inexperienced players who are being thrust into improvement, the odds are Flor idas defense will regress at least a little bit in 2013. Elam and Josh Evans wouldnt be covering ground behind Jenkins. Floyd and Omar Hunter wouldnt be around to take up space in front of him. Jon Bostic wouldnt be around to help Jenkins make the defensive calls. Jenkins would have been increased burden in keeping the defense on track. Expecting his play not to drop off would have been unreasonable. son might not have been as fuldoing the right thing by not giving it another try. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. JOSH, from page 14THURSDAY, JANUARY 24, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15David Carr / Alligator S taffJelani Jenkins (3) returns an interception during Floridas 37-26 win against Florida State on Nov. 24 at Doak Campbell Stadium. Florida, doing so in a 74-58 victory in Las Vegas on Nov. 25. Entering Thursday, Floridas RPI was 45, and the Gators ranked 37th in strength of schedule. We have to get it a lot lower than that, Carlie Needles said of UFs RPI. We have to believe in each other, and we have to believe in a common goal. Floridas blueprint makes tonights game against Ole Miss at 7 in the OConnell Center critical. First-year Rebels coach Brett Frank inherited a nightmarish situation during the offseason. on Oct. 22 after the school investigated allegations of impermissible recruiting contact and academic misconduct by two of his assistant coaches. Ole Miss self-imposed a postseason ban this year after dismissing Wiggins as well as assistants Kenya and Michael Landers. The Rebels have since stumbled to a 7-11 record, eastern Conference play. Florida can ill afford to blemish its resume with a loss to Ole Miss. The Rebels have an RPI of 274 and have looked overmatched in conference play. Needles said UF understands the importance of taking care of business at home but admitted the Gators could be in for a battle despite the two teams differing records. Even though Ole Miss hasnt won a conference game yet, they really have nothing to lose, Needles said. That makes them a really, really dangerous team. Theyre just playing for each other, and thats really scary. Butler refuses to label the matchup a trap game. She has spent the week imploring her team to prepare as it would for any other conference opponent. of the conference, Butler knows one misstep could greatly damage her teams chances of earning a berth in the NCAA Tournament. [The Rebels] are a team that plays fearlessly, and it probably is because they have nothing to lose, Butler said. [Ole Miss] is really impressive with how inspired they are. Weve got to handle our business.
