lieves the issue needs to be addressed as soon as possible. When we start talking about lives at stake, you dont sit around, he said. You do something now. On Wednesday, Chase wrote an email to City Manager Russ Blackburn outlining possible solutions to the problem, which include adding a stationary police car to the intersection and lower ing the speed limit. Blackburn responded with a list of actions the citys Public Works Department and Gainesville Police have already taken to alleviate pedestrian accidents in the area. One of the items included Gainesville Polices Pedestrian High Visibility Enforcement Program, which resulted in the department issuing 130 citations to motorists Jan. 25 and Jan. 28. Blackburn also wrote that Public Works has installed signs on opposite sides of the crosswalk to warn drivers of pedestrians. The intersection lies within City Commissioner Susan Bottchers district. Bottcher said she plans to work with the city to reduce the number of accidents on the crosswalk. However, she said, she thinks the root of the problem should be deter mined before any action is taken. We should really understand whats causing accidents and decide from there what our best step forward is, she said. We need to make sure we go about it in a manner where it will actually remedy the problem.

THE ONLINE SURVEY CLOSES FRIDAY. ELISE RODRIGUEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe City of Gainesville and the Regional Transit System are asking the public for its opinion as part of a study that focuses on implementing an alternative bus system. The city and RTS have been asking students as tive to the current bus system, said Ginger Cor The survey has been available online on the GO-Enhance RTS website, www.go-enhancerts. com, since Jan. 22 and will close Friday. More than anything, what we need right now is input, Corless said. The survey is part of the GO-Enhance RTS Study, which began in October, according to the studys website. RTS Chief Transit Planner Doug Robinson said the city has been a potential location for an alternate bus system for several years. In 2010, the city oversaw what is known as the Rapid Transit Feasibility Study, which found a need for residents in east Gainesville to be connected to major employment and shopping areas, Robinson said. The study showed that a Bus Rapid Transit system would offer the greatest improvements in In the study, Robinson said, BRT is still under consideration and is asking for public comment. said. Now, the community needs to see what can be done to make moving around here better. Robinson said BRT is modeled to resemble a rail transportation system. The system would be designed to expand increase travel speed and reliability. In addition, the lack of stops and improved design of the BRT buses would make them environmentally friendly, Robinson said. In previous RTS studies, residents tended to favor rail systems more than city buses. It has to do with nostalgia and the permanence of rail systems, he said. Rail systems are just simpler. They run right or left, with no stops in between. The proposed system, however, has its downsides. Widening streets is expensive, and the construction would increase congestion for motorists, Robinson said. The study area encompasses 16.6 miles from Santa Fe College to the Gainesville Regional Air port, according the GO-Enhance RTS Study website. dents wont have to worry about being late to class. Cristina Lopez-Poza, a 20-year-old SFC student, said she would consider using BRT system buses if they make travel quicker. I think itd probably be a very good idea and might offer a lot of Santa Fe students an easier way to get around, she said. Corless said the goal of the study is to have a streamlined plan for transportation approved by the city and the county by late spring. The next step will be to apply for federal funding. I truly believe an enhanced bus system will help us long term, she said. Survey takes input on bus system

A tiny black affenpinscher named Banana Joe won the coveted Best in Show award at the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times. The second ribbon went to Swagger, an Old English sheepdog who was named Reserve Best in Show, or runner-up to the winner, according to the Times. Somehow, a dog named Swagger only got second place in a reputable dog show competition. Only second place! This opens so many doors and opportunities for people to advance in life. This isnt at all an allegory to Student Government elections. Swagger, a 20-month-old Old English sheepdog, stunned many observers, entering as a class dog and defeating far more seasoned competitors to win the herding dog category Monday, according to the Times. Swagger was a clear crowd favorite but Bring it on, Swagger. Bring it on, indeed. They have a comical seriousness about them, Ernesto Lara said, according to USA Today. He doesnt think hes funny. He doesnt know his size or know that he has a pushed-in face. He thinks hes Mr. America. Its the unassuming ones who enter contests without expecting to win those are the ones you have to watch out for. Its the quiet ones who are too busy listening to you to make problems who end up being the best. Again, not at all referencing the upcoming elections. Its almost indescribable, Lara said, according to the Times. He described the dog a member of the toy group as a small breed with a big heart. What a sweet way to describe, like, anything. OK, OK. Well drop the facade. This is basically about the SG elections and how you should never assume what the outcome will be. You have the power. Were not saying at this moment whom we necessar ily want to win or lose. Nope, not at all. tion of Swagger versus Banana Joe. Think about it. We have the collective power to change the outcome of any election, by the way in case you needed a reminder. Backstage before the show, there were rows of tables with owners and trainers pampering pooches of all shapes, sizes, breeds and hairstyles, according to an ABC News article. Spaniels were combed, poodles were coiffed and Scottish deer hounds were brushed to show-level perfection. Im still in shock, said Swaggers owner, Colton Johnson of Colorado Springs, according to the Times. This is a hard show four times. We agree. Any competition is pretty nerve-wracking. Its imJust never assume the outcome. Keep your hopes up and your expectations low.Letters to the EditorStudents deserve more from Student Government Before I came to college, I pictured a place where the best ideas rose to the top, a place where students were progressive in their thoughts and actions and a place where, if you these things in UFs Student Government. In fact, I found the exact opposite. For decades, forces that represent the interests of a select few have had a stranglehold on power at this university. They have promoted people they know instead of people important issues out of fear of losing their positions. Perhaps most frighteningly, they have coerced thousands of students into voting for them through an elaborate system of rewards and punishments. The party in power controls every aspect of SG on this campus, from Senate to the executive branch, from the election commission to agencies like Accent and Student Government Productions. At times, it seems like the party in power is following the playbook of an authoritarian regime their tactics in a textbook about democracy. shot at winning an election, regardless of what organizations he or she is a member of. I believe students should be allowed to express their opinions without fear of consequences or retaliation, because I believe in the power of our First Amendment rights as Americans. I believe all students should be able to vote for the people they want representing them without being coerced into voting a certain way. Do you value democracy? Do you value freedom of speech? Do you value the rights of all students to be fairly represented in SG? If you do, then understand that the vote you cast is a vote in support or opposition of those ideals. To me, SG elections present a very clear right and wrong. To me, it is clearly right to stand up for meritocracy, freedom of speech and free elections. To me, there is only one party you can count on to stand up for these rights: the Students Party. Grier Ferguson Vice President, Students PartyAll students should be proud of SG effortsOn Monday, Students Party presidential candidate Johnny Castillo said the following: Erasing the divide between the Greek community and other students at UF is crucial to making Student Government an institution we can be proud of. Mr. Castillo is entitled to his opinion, but as someone who has dedicated this school year to proving the opposite point, I beg to differ. My agency Action SG consists of members of both parties and of those involved a multitude of student organizations who are dedicated to extolling the values of SG. In addition, weve launched an SG Ambassador Program with an invite to every single student organization whod like to know more about SG, and nearly every one of our initial organizations are not Greek organizations. This past year alone, SG outreach has increased exponentially from social media to town halls and barbecues. Just Monday morning students tabled not for a party but for SG. Im proud of an SG that fought for Library West to stay open 24/5, SNAP to go mobile and tuition to not rise through Aim Higher. Im proud of an SG that launched mobile deals for students, iPad rentals at Library West and saved students nearly $30,000 on Textbook Discount Day at the bookstore. for themselves. You can follow @UF_SG and @UFActionSG on Twitter, or on Facebook at UF Student Government or Action SG. Im proud to be in an SG all students should be proud of. Sean Quinn Action SG chairman

ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterFashion may have been under close supervision at this years Grammy Awards, as per a memo about wardrobe guidelines issued by CBS, but the artists didnt hold back when it came to performances. Thats what makes the Grammys so great the pairings of some of the most legendary performers with todays rising artists makes for memorable moments in music. Taylor Swift kicked the night off in carnival garb with her hit song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. Her performance may have been cute with the campy setting, but her accent jab at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles was anything but subtle. Other performance highlights include Fun. with a rain-drenched version of single Carry On. The band, which garnered an impressive six nominations for the night, took home trophies for Best New Artist and Song of the Year. Rihanna took the stage twice, once to perform her slow power ballad Stay and again alongside Bruno Mars, Sting, Ziggy and Damian Marley to pay (a severely awesome) tribute to Bob Marley. Also taking the stage twice was the always dapper Justin Timberlake, who brought Jay-Z on stage for the television debut of Suit and Tie. JT continued his performance, complete with a big band and orchestra, with new song Pusher Love Girl from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. His return to the Grammy stage marked a highlight of the night for many. Top honors went to Gotye and Kimbras Somebody That I Used to Know for Record of the Year, and Mumford & Sons took home the trophy for Album of the Year. Other winners included The Black Keys for Best Rock Album, Zac Brown Band for Best Country Album, and Adele for Best Pop Solo Performance. The announcers were just as memorable as the performances themselves. As host LL Cool J put it, Our introductions to performances can be performances. The Lumineers played its hit Ho Hey before Jack White took the stage, while Miguel and Wiz Khalifa did a crooning/rapping ditty before introducing the nominees for Best Country Solo Performance. Johnny Depp, in all of his glory, introduced Mumford, and the hilarious duo of Beyonce and Ellen DeGeneres brought out Timberlake. Between the surprises and the snubs (ahem: Frank Ocean), this years telecast had no shortage of excitement. Transitioning from music to movie awards, the Oscars are less than two weeks away. Tune in to ABC at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 for the years top honors in motion pictures.Trophy Hunting: Grammy Awards recognize the best in music Rihanna

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013 Courtesy to the Alligator / Mike McShaneDeath of a SalesmanShamrock McShane plays Willy Loman in High Springs Community Theaters production of Death of a Salesman. Read the review at alligator.org/the_avenue. IAN ROWEAvenue WriterBefore you read this album review, I should explain something: I am a huge Matt Pond fan. I discovered Matt Pond about six years ago in my years between high school and college. This was before I lived in Gainesville, I worked as a bartender serving heavyhanded Jack and Cokes to depressed 40somethings who mistook my desperation for their money as an interest in their sex lives. (Really, I couldnt care less about how cheating on your wife validates your masculinity.) In those shapeless years, I was young my life would be spent smiling at people then I heard Ponds 2005 song, So Much Trouble, and recognized this feeling was ubiquitous among directionless teenage bums. Pond became a band through which I sought refuge. Ponds talent as a songwriter lies in his ability to lull his listeners into a previous state. His music is ripe with reverie, and when its on, you cant help but remember feelings of adolescent hunger, uncertainty and being alone, alone, alone, alone and alone. But my question is this: What happens when you start to feel better? The latest album is The Lives Inside the Lines In Your Hand. The albums opening is promising enough, with a deluge of whoa-oh-whoaohs, and Ponds unfailingly familiar electric mellowness you feel like youre listening to a dying tree sing you songs about the fall. And this, of course, is wonderful, until you realize you heard these songs last fall, and the fall before that, and so on. For the long-term Pond fans, Lives Inside the Lines, feels more like compulsion than sincer writing music, Pond returns to what hes used to: animated melancholy. Although I still love the music, I think my disappointment stems from wanting to hear a warmer perspective from Pond, especially as the colder months Still, all is not lost. There are four songs worth putting on your iPhone or iPod for a walk around the neighborhood while the weather is still winter-ish. Let Me Live, Love to Get Used, Go Where the Leaves Go and the title song, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, still ring nostalgically of Ponds ability to say something new in a bittersweet way. While Im not crazy about the new album, Im still a fan of the band. If youve never listened to Pond, the four aforementioned songs arent a bad place to start or The Lives Inside the Lines: Matt Pond embraces sadness Want to win a copy of the album?

Thats something we are just going to have just going to be a tough game over all. Texas A&M won the 2011 national title and is a likely candidate to contend for a Final Four appearance this season. UF, meanwhile, has not beaten a ranked team this season. Butler knows the matchup against Texas A&M gives Florida a chance to the 2012-13 campaign. Its a fantastic opportunity, Butler said. Its a great chance to not only get a league win against one of the teams tied for the league lead, but also do that on the road. I think that would really solidify who we think we are. Junior guard Jaterra Bonds leads the Gators in scoring during confer ence play with 14.7 points per game. Her ability to contend with Courtney Walker, the SEC Freshman of the Week and the Aggies second-leading scorer, will be as important as the Gators ability to limit Bone.

On Wednesday, Chase wrote an email to City Manager Russ Blackburn outlining possible solutions to the problem, which include adding a stationary police car to the intersection and lowering the speed limit. Blackburn responded with a list of actions the citys Public Works Department and Gainesville Police have already taken to alleviate pedestrian accidents in the area. One of the items included Gainesville Polices Pedestrian High Visibility Enforcement Program, which resulted in the department issuing 130 citations to motorists Jan. 25 and Jan. 28. Blackburn also wrote that Public Works has installed signs on opposite sides of the crosswalk to warn drivers of pedestrians. The intersection lies within City Commissioner Susan Bottchers district. Bottcher said she plans to work with the city to reduce the number of accidents on the crosswalk. However, she said, she thinks the root of the problem should be determined before any action is taken. We should really understand whats causing accidents and decide from there what our best step forward is, she said. We need to make sure we go about it in a manner where it will actually remedy the problem.

THE ONLINE SURVEY CLOSES FRIDAY. ELISE RODRIGUEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe City of Gainesville and the Regional Transit System are asking the public for its opinion as part of a study that focuses on implementing an alternative bus system. The city and RTS have been asking students as tive to the current bus system, said Ginger Cor The survey has been available online on the GO-Enhance RTS website, www.go-enhancerts. com, since Jan. 22 and will close Friday. More than anything, what we need right now is input, Corless said. The survey is part of the GO-Enhance RTS Study, which began in October, according to the studys website. RTS Chief Transit Planner Doug Robinson said the city has been a potential location for an alternate bus system for several years. In 2010, the city oversaw what is known as the Rapid Transit Feasibility Study, which found a need for residents in east Gainesville to be connected to major employment and shopping areas, Robinson said. The study showed that a Bus Rapid Transit system would offer the greatest improvements in In the study, Robinson said, BRT is still under consideration and is asking for public comment. said. Now, the community needs to see what can be done to make moving around here better. Robinson said BRT is modeled to resemble a rail transportation system. The system would be designed to expand increase travel speed and reliability. In addition, the lack of stops and improved design of the BRT buses would make them environmentally friendly, Robinson said. In previous RTS studies, residents tended to favor rail systems more than city buses. It has to do with nostalgia and the permanence of rail systems, he said. Rail systems are just simpler. They run right or left, with no stops in between. The proposed system, however, has its downsides. Widening streets is expensive, and the construction would increase congestion for motorists, Robinson said. The study area encompasses 16.6 miles from Santa Fe College to the Gainesville Regional Air port, according the GO-Enhance RTS Study website. dents wont have to worry about being late to class. Cristina Lopez-Poza, a 20-year-old SFC student, said she would consider using BRT system buses if they make travel quicker. I think itd probably be a very good idea and might offer a lot of Santa Fe students an easier way to get around, she said. Corless said the goal of the study is to have a streamlined plan for transportation approved by the city and the county by late spring. The next step will be to apply for federal funding.

Wednesdays question: Do you have a Valentine?42% YES 58% NO73 TOTAL VOTESWorstminster Dog Show: Get out and vote, yallIts the year of the underdog. Expect the unexpected. A tiny black affenpinscher named Banana Joe won the coveted Best in Show award at the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times. The second ribbon went to Swagger, an Old English sheepdog who was named Reserve Best in Show, or runner-up to the winner, according to the Times. Somehow, a dog named Swagger only got second place in a reputable dog show competition. Only second place! This opens so many doors and opportunities for people to advance in life. This isnt at all an allegory to Student Government elections. Swagger, a 20-month-old Old English sheepdog, stunned many observers, entering as a class dog and defeating far more seasoned competitors to win the herding dog category Monday, according to the Times. Swagger was a clear crowd favorite but Bring it on, Swagger. Bring it on, indeed. They have a comical seriousness about them, Ernesto Lara said, according to USA Today. He doesnt think hes funny. He doesnt know his size or know that he has a pushed-in face. He thinks hes Mr. America. Its the unassuming ones who enter contests without expecting to win those are the ones you have to watch out for. Its the quiet ones who are too busy listening to you to make problems who end up being the best. Again, not at all referencing the upcoming elections. Its almost indescribable, Lara said, according to the Times. He described the dog a member of the toy group as a small breed with a big heart. What a sweet way to describe, like, anything. OK, OK. Well drop the facade. This is basically about the SG elections and how you should never assume what the outcome will be. You have the power. Were not saying at this moment whom we necessar ily want to win or lose. Nope, not at all. tion of Swagger versus Banana Joe. Think about it. We have the collective power to change the outcome of any election, by the way in case you needed a reminder. Backstage before the show, there were rows of tables with owners and trainers pampering pooches of all shapes, sizes, breeds and hairstyles, according to an ABC News article. Spaniels were combed, poodles were coiffed and Scottish deer hounds were brushed to show-level perfection. Im still in shock, said Swaggers owner, Colton Johnson of Colorado Springs, according to the Times. This is a hard show four times. We agree. Any competition is pretty nerve-wracking. Its imJust never assume the outcome. Keep your hopes up and your expectations low.Letters to the EditorStudents deserve more from Student Government Before I came to college, I pictured a place where the best ideas rose to the top, a place where students were progressive in their thoughts and actions and a place where, if you these things in UFs Student Government. In fact, I found the exact opposite. For decades, forces that represent the interests of a select few have had a stranglehold on power at this university. They have promoted people they know instead of people important issues out of fear of losing their positions. Perhaps most frighteningly, they have coerced thousands of students into voting for them through an elaborate system of rewards and punishments. The party in power controls every aspect of SG on this campus, from Senate to the executive branch, from the election commission to agencies like Accent and Student Government Productions. At times, it seems like the party in power is following the playbook of an authoritarian regime their tactics in a textbook about democracy. shot at winning an election, regardless of what organizations he or she is a member of. I believe students should be allowed to express their opinions without fear of consequences or retaliation, because I believe in the power of our First Amendment rights as Americans. I believe all students should be able to vote for the people they want representing them without being coerced into voting a certain way. Do you value democracy? Do you value freedom of speech? Do you value the rights of all students to be fairly represented in SG? If you do, then understand that the vote you cast is a vote in support or opposition of those ideals. To me, SG elections present a very clear right and wrong. To me, it is clearly right to stand up for meritocracy, freedom of speech and free elections. To me, there is only one party you can count on to stand up for these rights: the Students Party. Grier Ferguson Vice President, Students PartyAll students should be proud of SG effortsOn Monday, Students Party presidential candidate Johnny Castillo said the following: Erasing the divide between the Greek community and other students at UF is crucial to making Student Government an institution we can be proud of. Mr. Castillo is entitled to his opinion, but as someone who has dedicated this school year to proving the opposite point, I beg to differ. My agency Action SG consists of members of both parties and of those involved a multitude of student organizations who are dedicated to extolling the values of SG. In addition, weve launched an SG Ambassador Program with an invite to every single student organization whod like to know more about SG, and nearly every one of our initial organizations are not Greek organizations. This past year alone, SG outreach has increased exponentially from social media to town halls and barbecues. Just Monday morning students tabled not for a party but for SG. Im proud of an SG that fought for Library West to stay open 24/5, SNAP to go mobile and tuition to not rise through Aim Higher. Im proud of an SG that launched mobile deals for students, iPad rentals at Library West and saved students nearly $30,000 on Textbook Discount Day at the bookstore. for themselves. You can follow @UF_SG and @UFActionSG on Twitter, or on Facebook at UF Student Government or Action SG. Im proud to be in an SG all students should be proud of. Sean Quinn Action SG chairman

Besides mustaches, what turns you on? Dear Friend, Dear Mediocre Advice, I broke up with my boyfriend of one year because I did not see things working out in the long run. He was 100 percent invested, and I was not. Im devastated because I hurt a good, honest and loving person, and I cant stop thinking about him. I didnt know being the one to end a relationship could hurt like this. What do I do? Am I a shallow, terrible person for not giving it more time? How do I get through this? Dear Friend, I would use it and how it would parents offer to buy you a printer, accept their offer and take the Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the best advice your parents ever gave you? Valentines Day Table for Two SEANTYEL HARDYAvenue Contributing WriterUnless youre Taylor Swift, youve probably been single on Valentines Day. But it shouldnt be a letdown this year. Safe Haven, based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, released in theaters today. Although going to see anything based on a Sparks book when youre single seems like suicide, going with your friends is a good idea. That is safer than seeing it with a guy who youre going to compare to the onscreen hunk, only to be disappointed. If you arent into love stories, you can decide Valentines Day is A Good Day to Die Hard, and check out Bruce Willis on the big screen. If you see it matinee, you can avoid the couples and save a few dollars. Another option is to take a trip to Ginnie Springs.

There are sure to be drink specials everywhere, and while Im not telling you to drink your sorrows away, I am telling you to make the most of your night. Instead of throwing your own bitter bash this year, grab some friends, get out there and just do something. Unless youre practically [or actually] married, Valentines Day is just another day.

With full schedules and thriving career goals, we just dont have the time or energy to keep up with the demands of a relationship. But Valentines Day is different. Its the day to put all of your stress aside and put out. probably tired of the quiet dinners in and the uneventful dates out. If youre looking for a fresh take on romance, mix it up this Valentines Day by partaking in activities that will add variety to your day and night. Revisit your childhood memories with a trip to the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo. College students dont get to see exotic animals often, unless theyre majoring in zoology or they go clubbing every night so this could be a change of scenery. The zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and admission is $5. Immerse yourselves in nature by visiting the local parks. Activities like canoeing and row boating at Lake Wauburg can help you bond with whom youre dating. If you get stranded in the middle of the lake, you have to work as a team. Nature lovers can also take a walk, have a picnic and watch the sunset at Lake Alice. For the adrenaline-loving couple, biking, hiking or horseback riding at Paynes Prairie is the adventure for you. Get creative and cook together. Publix sells prepared pizza dough, so purchase some sauce, cheese and a couple of toppings, and make your own gourmet meal for two for less than $20. Toss a salad, pop a bottle of wine and dinner is served. If you are worried about all the pesky extra calories, dont fret. Youll be burning those off soon. The fashionable couple will enjoy a fancy night out on the town. Throw on your best threads, splash on your favorite fragrance and grab your girl or guy for a spin around downtown.

Most important, remember to end the night with a bang. LL COOL J WAS THE HOST. ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterFashion may have been under close supervision at this years Grammy Awards, as per a memo about wardrobe guidelines issued by CBS, but the artists didnt hold back when it came to performances. Thats what makes the Grammys so great the pairings of some of the most legendary performers with todays rising artists makes for memorable moments in music. Taylor Swift kicked the night off in carnival garb with her hit song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. Her performance may have been cute with the campy setting, but her accent jab at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles was anything but subtle. Other performance highlights include Fun. with a rain-drenched version of single Carry On. The band, which garnered an impressive six nominations for the night, took home trophies for Best New Artist and Song of the Year. Rihanna took the stage twice, once to perform her slow power ballad Stay and again alongside Bruno Mars, Sting, Ziggy and Damian Marley to pay (a severely awesome) tribute to Bob Marley. Also taking the stage twice was the always dapper Justin Timberlake, who brought Jay-Z on stage for the television debut of Suit and Tie. JT continued his performance, complete with a big band and orchestra, with new song Pusher Love Girl from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. His return to the Grammy stage marked a highlight of the night for many. Top honors went to Gotye and Kimbras Somebody That I Used to Know for Record of the Year, and Mumford & Sons took home the trophy for Album of the Year. Other winners included The Black Keys for Best Rock Album, Zac Brown Band for Best Country Album, and Adele for Best Pop Solo Performance. The announcers were just as memorable as the performances themselves. As host LL Cool J put it, Our introductions to performances can be performances. The Lumineers played its hit Ho Hey before Jack White took the stage, while Miguel and Wiz Khalifa did a crooning/rapping ditty before introducing the nominees for Best Country Solo Performance. Johnny Depp, in all of his glory, introduced Mumford, and the hilarious duo of Beyonce and Ellen DeGeneres brought out Timberlake. Between the surprises and the snubs (ahem: Frank Ocean), this years telecast had no shortage of excitement. Transitioning from music to movie awards, the Oscars are less than two weeks away. Tune in to ABC at 7 p.m. Feb. 24 for the years top honors in motion pictures.Trophy Hunting: Grammy Awards recognize the best in music Rihanna

Read the review at alligator.org/the_avenue. IAN ROWEAvenue WriterBefore you read this album review, I should explain something: I am a huge Matt Pond fan. I discovered Matt Pond about six years ago in my years between high school and college. This was before I lived in Gainesville, I worked as a bartender serving heavyhanded Jack and Cokes to depressed 40somethings who mistook my desperation for their money as an interest in their sex lives. (Really, I couldnt care less about how cheating on your wife validates your masculinity.) In those shapeless years, I was young my life would be spent smiling at people then I heard Ponds 2005 song, So Much Trouble, and recognized this feeling was ubiquitous among directionless teenage bums. Pond became a band through which I sought refuge. Ponds talent as a songwriter lies in his ability to lull his listeners into a previous state. His music is ripe with reverie, and when its on, you cant help but remember feelings of adolescent hunger, uncertainty and being alone, alone, alone, alone and alone. But my question is this: What happens when you start to feel better? The latest album is The Lives Inside the Lines In Your Hand. The albums opening is promising enough, with a deluge of whoa-oh-whoaohs, and Ponds unfailingly familiar electric mellowness you feel like youre listening to a dying tree sing you songs about the fall. And this, of course, is wonderful, until you realize you heard these songs last fall, and the fall before that, and so on. For the long-term Pond fans, Lives Inside the Lines, feels more like compulsion than sincer writing music, Pond returns to what hes used to: animated melancholy. Although I still love the music, I think my disappointment stems from wanting to hear a warmer perspective from Pond, especially as the colder months Still, all is not lost. There are four songs worth putting on your iPhone or iPod for a walk around the neighborhood while the weather is still winter-ish. Let Me Live, Love to Get Used, Go Where the Leaves Go and the title song, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, still ring nostalgically of Ponds ability to say something new in a bittersweet way. While Im not crazy about the new album, Im still a fan of the band. If youve never listened to Pond, the four aforementioned songs arent a bad place to start or The Lives Inside the Lines: Matt Pond embraces sadness Want to win a copy of the album?

19-point, 11-rebound effort. Shes bigger than some of the post players we have come against, and she is very, very strong, junior center Vicky McIntyre said. Thats something we are just going to have just going to be a tough game over all. Texas A&M won the 2011 national title and is a likely candidate to contend for a Final Four appearance this season. UF, meanwhile, has not beaten a ranked team this season. Butler knows the matchup against Texas A&M gives Florida a chance to the 2012-13 campaign. Its a fantastic opportunity, Butler said. Its a great chance to not only get a league win against one of the teams tied for the league lead, but also do that on the road. I think that would really solidify who we think we are. Junior guard Jaterra Bonds leads the Gators in scoring during confer ence play with 14.7 points per game. Her ability to contend with Courtney Walker, the SEC Freshman of the Week and the Aggies second-leading scorer, will be as important as the Gators ability to limit Bone. Bonds has made just one NCAA Tournament appearance. She hopes to better her chances of making another run to the Big Dance while helping Butler collect some delayed [Butler] has mentioned it to us, Bonds said. That is something we are going to take personal. We want to get out there and win it for her, because thats where her career ended. Contact Phillip Heilman at pheilman@alligator.org.

Texas A&M won national title in 2011cent on two-point attempts. We knew that Nerlens was able to block a lot of shots and not only block them, but just alter them and make you think about, Oh, hes coming to block my shot help side, Young said. So we knew today that if we attack the basket, you had to go up aggressive. After picking up a foul less than 2 minutes into the game, Young did not commit one for the remainder of the contest. A handful of acrobatic plays highlighted his perfor mance. Youngs most impressive offensive play was a reverse layup with 19:33 remaining. After receiving a bounce pass from senior forward Erik Murphy, Young curled around But Youngs defense earned air time on ESPNs SportsCenter with one of the top 10 plays on Tuesday. After Wildcats guard Archie Goodwin stole the ball from Young, the UF center chased Goodwin down the lane and rejected his layup. My favorite kind of block is when I get to chase somebody down from behind, and they dont see me coming, and I smack it, Young said. I was able to do that a few times. Fatigue has been an issue for Young throughout his caAt the 12:10 mark of the second half, Young dashed to the other end and beat Noel on a layup to put the Gators ahead 53-38. Youngs teammates fed off his intensity. It just felt like he was laying it all on the line for our team, guard Mike Rosario said. Thats what we need out of our big guy. AGGIES, from page 14Young committed just one foul against UK HOOPS, from page 14 RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif. The three-round tournament, which mostly featured western schools, was Floridas second competition of the spring. The Gators were coming off a win at the Florida Challenge on Jan. 28, but they could not translate their momentum into a victory at the Palos Verdes Golf Club. Florida trailed eventual champion UCLA by strokes behind. UF was looking for its fourth win of the season behind the play of sophomore Camilla Hedberg and senior Isabelle Lendl. Hedberg shot six over for the tournament (219) over par (224). ond round in a second-place tie. over par (76) in the championship round. Eventual champion Erynee Lee from UCLA was three-day tourney in Palos verdes. Lendl never played up to her potential. Rounds of 74, 75 and 75 prevented her from contending for the individual title. The disappointment goes past just the play of Hedberg and Lendl. Senior Mia Piccio, who was coming off a victory at the Lady Bulldog Individual Championship, fell out of contention when she shot seven over par in round (76). over par (83) in the second round before shooting round. Still, there was a bright spot for Florida. Anna Young, who began the tournament with a 225 (+12).

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013 MAX MATTERNAlligator WriterJacksonville took control against No. 3 Florida at the opening draw. The Dolphins 3 minutes of the game without attempting a shot on goal. Jacksonvilles Nikki Ederly bounced the ball underneath UF goalie Mikey Meaghers stick to give JU a 1-0 lead. After a quick, failed shot by the Gators, the Dolphins controlled the ball for another 3:30 before turning it over. Then the Gators got going. Senior Kitty Cullen weaved in and out of the JU defense, nailing the ball in the top of the net to tie the game 1-1 with 22:42 remaining. Six minutes later, Florida extended the score to 4-1. straight goals later in the game, never giving Jacksonville a chance. Florida is 2-0 for only the second time in program history after defeating Jacksonville (1-2) 15-4 on the road Wednesday night. The Gators are undefeated in four contests against the Dolphins, winning by an average margin of 9.8 goals per game. The goals were off feeds and off drives, senior Gabi Wiegand said. We were just kind of seeing what the defense was doing and giving us, and we just took our opportunities. Wiegand continued her early success this sonville, upping her 2013 total to seven. She scored twice during a 5-3 win against North Carolina on Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C. [Wiegand] not only scored in [one-on-one situations], she scored in transition, she scored around the crease, coach Amanda OLeary said. She was just a threat everywhere. Wiegand has 10 goals in two games against the Dolphins. Gators were in command on draw controls and ground balls. Florida led 13-8 in draw controls and 19-8 in ground balls. Anytime you can hold possession of the ball, the other team cant score, OLeary said. You cant score without the ball. All but one of the Gators 12 starters scooped up a ground ball during the game. Florida forced 10 turnovers compared to Our team competed really hard, OLeary said. Its doing the dirty work, and I think thats where we really did a good job [Wednesday night].

Gators rout Dolphins on roadSOFTBALL MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator WriterBriana Little had a big hit on Wednesday night. Little hit a grand slam to help Florida earn an 11-3 victory against Jacksonville at the JU Softball Complex in Jacksonville. The homer was Littles only hit of the night, but it was more than enough for UF. I knew if she pitched it down the middle again, I was going to hit it hard, Little said. I just relaxed came in front of familiar eyes. The Middleburg native found comfort playing near her hometown. It was really nice to have my parents and friends from home come see me play, Little said. It port. The Dolphins took a 1-0 lead in the third, but sophomore Bailey Castro stepped got the Gators on the board. Castro tied the score in the fourth with a solo home run, sparking a threerun inning. I just felt super excited knowing I helped my team out, Castro said. Florida took advantage of Jacksonville starter Taylor Rossman on Wednesday night. The Gators tagged the freshman hurler for 11 runs on 10 hits. We did a great job coming back after the third and not giving into Jacksonvilles tougher players, coach Tim Walton said. Freshman Kelsey Stewart was another key contributor to UFs of5 at the plate. Stewarts third hit was a two-run triple. Kelsey really plays hard out there and raises the level for us, Little said. Despite a productive night with the bats, the Gators only needed Littles grand slam. Alhough Hannah Rogers did not pitch up to her usual standards, she still surrendered only three runs on seven hits in seven We have a lot of strong players that contributed great plays, Castro said. But, it took all [16] of us to get that win.Sophomores grand slam helps Florida defeat Jacksonville Little You cant score without the ball.Amanda OLearyUF coach
