JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer The pocket was breaking down, and Antonio Morrison saw EJ Manuel had nowhere to go. Florida State led Florida 20-16 with 11:16 remaining in the fourth quarter, and the Seminoles were driving. The Gators needed a big play to not only avoid their third straight loss in the rivalry but to keep their national championship hopes alive. Enter Morrison. looking for a hole, Lerentee McCray got his hands on the signal-caller, wrapping up the speedsters knees. Half a second later, Morrison arrived on the scene and leveled Manuel. The ball came out and squirted across the turf. Manuel lied motionless unconscious in a crumpled heap on Florida States 38yard line. Defensive end Dominique Easley Florida run to end the game. Morrison was the catalyst. I always do stuff like that, he said. Manuel was perhaps the hardest hit of Morrisons 34 tackle victims in 2012. Morrison developed a reputation for big hits during his Hes really a big hitter thats the thing about him. Tone just likes hitting, running back Matt Jones said. Hes a physical linebacker, and hes just a physical person. Youre going to feel Tone when he hits you. When asked to describe Morrison, cornerback Jeremy Brown provided a list: Mad man, hard hitter, crazy, mean, scary. Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. added: All he wants to do is clean somebodys clock. Morrison earned his reputation through unbridled enthusiasm in practice, something coach Will Muschamp loves to see. But Morrison becomes overzealous at times. He drew a scolding from Muschamp after delivering a jarring hit on tight end Kent Taylor in a practice drill on March 15. The Gators were not wearing pads that day. You want to be aggressive, Muschamp said. You want to play with great toughness, and its my job to make sure we judge the right way on what is too much and what is not enough. Hes certainly one that pushes the envelope. Morrison added: Sometimes, [rage] can control your whole game and youll mess up and do the wrong thing, so youve got to make sure you balance it out. Morrisons physicality is easier to deal with in Gainesville. Southeastern Conference athletes can take his hits better than his former teammates at Bolingbrook, Ill. High. Like Muschamp, Bolingbrook High coach John Ivlow used to step in and ask Morrison to ease up at practice. He plays the game the way it was meant to be played and supposed to be played, Ivlow said. Unfortunately, some guys havent got it like he does, and theyre neither as physical nor as tough as he is. Muschamp added: Its fun to coach a guy that has a lot of passion and energy. I like selfstarters. I like guys that go out there and selfstart, that self-motivate themselves, that you dont have to create an edge for them every day. And hes a young man that you dont have to create an edge for. When Anthony Morrison played football at Bolingbrook High, Antonio would always tag along. But Antonio, who was 7 years younger than his brother, wasnt there to watch. He always wanted to come out and do the drills with us, Anthony said. He didnt just come out and try to participate in the drills. He was actually trying to beat the guys I was working out with. Once Anthonys playing days ended, he took up coaching. As the defensive coordinator of Bolingbrook Highs sophomore team, he had the opportunity to coach his brother as a freshman. One year later, Antonio was suiting up with the varsity team. Throughout his football career, Antonio has always been one step ahead. He actually played D-end for us on varsity as a sophomore, Ivlow said. I always knew he was a football player. There was never any doubt in anybodys mind. Anthony always knew his brother was tough, but he gained new respect for Antonio through their player-coach relationship. During one game his freshman season, Antonio chased down a ball carrier 15 yards from behind and stripped the ball. Later in the same contest, Antonio made a diving interception to seal a Bolingbrook victory. Ever since he was young, he always just had that competitive edge, Anthony said. Me and my dad, we saw that he had that in him and just continued to try to push him along. We tried to make things as tough as possible. So that way, if he ever got put in a situation where things may become tough, he had already experienced some things like that. When Morrison committed to Florida, he was proactive he had to be. Although Morrison, a four-star prospect, was a key member of the nations third-ranked Bullard and Fowler overshadowed him. Eight members of UFs 2012 class were ranked higher nationally than Morrison. Eager to contribute from the get-go, Morrison graduated early from Bolingbrook High. He wanted to participate in the Gators spring practice. The fact that he graduated high school early and got down there that spring, that helped him tremendously, Ivlow said. Also, Morrison was undersized. He has gained 9 pounds since committing to UF but Morrison still weighs the least among the Gators four starting linebackers at 229 pounds. But size has not limited Morrison. Antonio is a beast. He goes hard every down, Fowler said. A lot of people think he is undersized, but for his size, he plays like one of the biggest linebackers in our league. Coaches immediately took notice of the Chicago backer. Morrison recorded nine tackles, including one for a loss, in the 2012 spring game. day he was allowed to hit someone, he made it very clear that he likes hitting people, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We like people who like hitting people on defense. He made that statement very clear early on. Morrison then built on a strong spring with a breakout performance in fall camp. Former UF defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was especially impressed. He really answers the bell when we challenge him, Quinn said on Aug. 16. The bell rang early in Floridas 20-17 win against Texas A&M on Sept. 8 in College Staseries, Will linebacker Jelani Jenkins suffered a fractured right thumb. One game and one series into his college career, Morrison was He responded with six tackles as part of a defensive effort that limited the Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the Aggies offense to only 99 yards during the second half. Quinn chalked up Morrisons maturity in a crucial situation to the linebackers desire to prove himself. He really wanted to play in the SEC what a challenge, Quinn said on Sept. 12. This guys a real competitor saying, OK, Im from Illinois. I want to go to the SEC. Im going early. Im going to Florida, and he really came in with this competitive linebacker mindset that you love. Thats one of the things I respect most about him. Early on in his career, it was early. It was, I want to come in, and I want to play, and I want to show that I belong. Hes certainly done that. Another bell is ringing in 2013. Morrison is a holdover on a Florida defense hit harder by graduation and early entries to the NFL draft than any player on the receiving end of one of his tackles. Even Quinn is gone, replaced by the newly promoted Durkin. The Gators needed a leader, and Muschamp deemed Morrison ready for the challenge. Only a sophomore, Morrison is stepping in for departed team captain Jon Bostic at middle linebacker. Lining up in the heart of Floridas defense, Morrison will be the hub for the Gators communication. Muschamp said Morrison needs to work on making checks at the line of scrimmage and staying level-headed in his increased role. Both skills will develop with experience. Hes a very emotional young man, and thats something that were trying to let him table a little bit, Muschamp said. Regardless of the results of the previous play or the circumstances or situations of the game, youve got to move and play the next play. Morrison will debut as the leader of Floridas new-look defense in the Gators spring Stadium. With a new coordinator, seven new starters and a new role, changes abound for Morrison and the UF defense. But one part of Morrison will never change. Every time I get in the game, Morrison said, I go hard. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org.

Casey Juby, an 18-yearold UF architecture freshman, has been using a 30-day trial of Photoshop for her assignments. Once the trial expired, she logged onto UFApps to use Photoshop for her design studio project only to realize the program was missing. Its really inconvenient, Juby said. Now I have to go to the CIRCA lab instead. The software disappeared from the UFApps website last week, causing a nuisance for the website, whose platform is based on convenience. It allows students to use expensive software remotely even on their phone without having to worry about licensing. We are working to resolve the situation, which we believe is temporary, UF spokesman Steve Orlando wrote in an email. It is important to note that the UF apps initiative is a pilot and not a full producgrams are for trying different things. There is no word as to when the Adobe programs will be relaunched on UFApps.

The event will have speed, endurance, challenge and extreme hopscotch competitions. Other than hopscotch, there will be four square, HulaHoop, jump rope and basketball. David Nassau, an 18-yearold UF marketing freshman, said he and his friend started Hopping 4 A Cure in January 2011. They got the idea in October 2010, when they dressed up in suits one day at their high school for National Suit inspired by How I Met Your Mother. They walked the halls jokteam. Other students were interested in joining, and the two decided to turn it into a charity event. Nassaus father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about eight years ago, and he experiences memory failure along with some other cognitive symptoms and minimal physical ones. He cant even ride a bike now, Nassau said. Valerie Sheehan, the 33-year-old owner of local startup company ToneRite, is one of the sponsors. ToneRite manufactures and sells a vibrating product for string instruments that mimics the effects of a person actually playing it.

UFs new grant-management system, myinvestiGator, launched about four months ago. Since then, about 1,400 members of UFs faculty and staff have used the program to manage about $700 million in research grants. For many of them, myinvestiGator is the answer to easing budgeting headaches and saving time. We really wanted to make it faculty focused, and it had been found to be a high-priority need, said Stephanie Gray, director of the UF Division of Sponsored Research. They wanted online banking but for grants. MindTree, a recent addition to the Gainesville area, helped implement the system, with a design that needed no training to use. The partworked with an outside company to develop internal software. Its very hard to create something easy to use for everybody, said Jason Williams, senior user experience designer at MindTree. You dont know how tech-savvy a happy medium. Gray said a task force was put together in 2010 to develop programs MyinvestiGator was delayed due to an overhaul of the human resources system. The pace and lack of programmers available at the time drove the task force to look at alternatives to internal development, Gray said. Two companies submitted demos of ideas in August.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2013 TUESDAY WAS WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY. KATIE BURNS CARLA VIANNAAlligator Contributing WritersIMPACT Autism is hosting the TEAxUF conference Saturday as part of Autism Awareness Month. The goal is to inform and inspire a conversation that will impact future technology and education in autism. I think it is important to remember that as students today, we are preparing to be tomorrows educators, doctors or therapists, said Ashley Giddings, a 22-year-old UF neurobiological sciences senior and president of IMPACT Autism. Tuesday was World Autism Awareness Day, where organizations around the world promoted awareness of the developmental disorder. Autism Speaks pushed the Light It Up Blue campaign, where landmarks and buildings in 750 cities used blue lights to illuminate for the cause. President Barack Obama also unveiled the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative, which aims at mapping out the human brain and its circuits in action, according to a CBS cures for autism, Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease, and it will start in 2014. Leilani Doty, director of UFs Memory and Cognitive Disorders clinics, said the plan was a major step toward the development of treatments and cures for brain health issues. It is something that we absolutely need, she said. Even though we do know some of the simple functions of the brain, there is really so much more that we need to learn about. Elizabeth Slonena, a 22-yearold UF psychology senior and president of the UF Neuroscience Club, said Obamas initiative will have a positive impact Itll really allow the neuroscience community to explore different aspects of neuroscience and go back to the basics, she said.Autism conference hopes for big impactLOCAL PATRICIA POTESTADESAlligator Contributing WriterKeep Alachua County Beautiful is recruiting volunteers to participate in the Great American Cleanup on Saturday. The countywide cleanup, which is part of the nationwide littercollection effort, will begin at 8 a.m. at Westside Park in Gainesville. [Saturday] is an easy way for people to get involved and celebrate the impact we can make in Alachua County, said Gina Hawkins, executive director of Keep Alachua County Beautiful. Volunteers will be assigned to locations throughout the county and provided with supplies for removing litter, planting and removing along Southwest Archer Road and West Newberry Road. Last year, 657 people participated. Since then, new locations have been added to the list of cleanup sites based on requests from people wanting to clean their communities. This year, more than 300 volunteers have already registered for the cleanup. The organization will continue accepting volunteers, even those who show up the day of. Danielle Mortimer, a 22-year-old UF English senior, has participated in the cleanup on behalf of Alpha Phi Omega for the past two years. Now, as an intern for Keep Alachua County Beautiful, she plans to participate again this year. Litter is a huge problem in Alachua County, she said. It has a huge impact on our environment, and our environment has a huge impact on us.

But because it was a group email, he said people shouldnt feel offended, as it wasnt directed at them. I feel like people are too sensitive when it comes to things like this, he said. Its not like it was attacking anyone personally. But Rob Bailey, a 25-year-old Gainesville graphics and web designer, disagreed. Because of the email, Bailey unsubscribed from the companys email feed and blocked future messages from his inbox. He said he wont do business with the company in the future because ordering requires keying in payment information. That speaks to incredible lack of security on their part, he said. To make up for the mistake, the company announced Thursday it would offer free delivery for all orders until Sunday. The company also sent an apology email that went straight to recipients spam folders, according to another post. Its just not our day, the post said.

As a third-year upperclassman, I have taken numerous online courses, ranging from Mans Food and Introduction to Managerial Accounting to Principles of Macroeconomics and Principles of Marketing. Some have been easy, like Mans Food, and attending live class would have felt counterproductive. I cant imagine what attending lectures would be like. Others have been difrently taking. As much as I appreciate the convenience of online classes, I have not yet gotten the hang of them. Most critical tracking and core classes are virtual for business majors. One-third of the degree can be completed through online courses (by looking at degree requirements and number of classes which are taught online). The convenience of attending class whenever and wherever seems great like if its 2 a.m. in my apartment, and Im curled up in my comforter with hot chocolate on one side and a pile of laundry on the other. Whats not so great is I dont watch lectures on time, if at all, depending on the class. I even forget Im enrolled in that class sometimes. A week before an exam, the stress and the number of times I go to Starbucks increases. Overwhelmed with the 30 hours of lectures I have yet to watch and the more than 200 pages I have to read, I ask myself: What was I doing for the past two months? How did I let myself do this again? It always happens. There is a lack of professor-to-student interaction. I have not met many of my professors. They seem like celebrities, and if I randomly come across them at the Emerson Courtyard, I am starstruck. Ive only seen them through my 15-inch Sony VAIO. Maybe I can break the ice with, Hello, Professor Rush, my name is Raksheen. I am among the hundreds of students in your class. Do you recognize me? No. How about my UFID number? Maybe. Another huge drawback is the lack of peer-to-peer interor someone to discuss todays lecture on crimes and torts, you that intellectual you wish to connect with. And trust me, this can be hard. Online classes are more diftake a lot more time and dedication. They generally consist of watching hours of lectures online, taking timed quizzes and, ultimately, showing up for an exam that will end late on a Tuesday night. At the end of the semester, it can feel very dissatisfying. If theres a concept that confuses me, I cant raise my hand and ask. I can email the professor and get a response in a timely 24 to 48 hours, but do I really want to go through the effort of writing a lengthy professional email to a stranger? Or do I want to take the time to get dressed, go to campus Ill skip, hoping its not on the exam. Most important, how much have I gained if I cannot implement what I have learned? Management requires the If I memorize 60 pages in four months and get an A, does that make me smart and destined to be a stellar manager? If I slack and get a C, should I then give up on that career path? There should be a component to the class that forces students to physically meet to discuss and implement what is being taught in lectures, whether thats through evaluating management techniques in a group, completing a group project or even further analyzing a case study. Even though theres the option to attend the live taping Missing out on someone speaking for two hours doesnt bother me.

The new season will Finally my simple wish for the show is coming true: that it be broadcast every second around the clock to every television, computer or mobile device in existence, the shows creator and executive producer Mitch Hurwitz said in a statement, according to a Reuters article. Who cares if the show was originally canceled due to poor ratings? Arrested Development is the Cinderella of cable TV. It gives us hope for other shows that may not be doing so hot. We give a family-love-Michael LAUREL to Arrested Development. We cant wait to catch up with the REAL PEOPLE ALERT: Theres at least one high school in Georgia that has segregated proms. The school holds separate proms for white and non-white students. Homecoming is also normally segregated, with separate courts for each race, reportnot broken any civil rights laws because it doesnt actually sponsor the segregated prom dances or any prom dance, for that matter. Instead, parents and students are responsible for organizing and funding the private events. We give a yall-down-in-Georgia-need-to-get-with-the-program DART to racists. If we live in a time where the Earth can open sinkholes to swallow people, then we shouldnt have to worry about racist buttholes ruining prom for everyone. Prom is already not that great. Why would you make it worse? This week, Facebook held yet another press conference during which we all expected the company to announce it would be producing a Facebook phone. Luckily, its not. Sort of. Itll be called Facebook Home. Home turns your phone into a Facebook device, said a Wired article. Even with the lock screen on, a photo stream of home screen, too. Whats more, Home makes Facebook the primary means of communication on your device. The companys messaging software merges with SMS, and you can continue using its chat heads to text while inside another app. We give a we-guess-youre-allowed-to-take-over-a-whole-phonebut-maybe-were-already-on-our-phones-too-much FLART to Zuckerberg. We like your panache, but it feels unnecessary here. Thats all for this week, everybody. We want to end this Darts & Laurels with a little reminder to be nice to those around you. The end of any semester can get a little hectic and crazy, but that doesnt give us an excuse to behave like idiots. If everyone could be respectful for these last few weeks and then for the rest of their lives, that would be great. Thank you. Have a fun and safe weekend, and go Gators!

Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Goalie Mikey Meagher was pulled on March 30 in the loss. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org.MLB GatorsBoston Red Sox catcher David Ross went 1 for 3 and threw out two base runners in a 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Thursday night in New York. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterLess than two innings into the Gators game against UCF on Tuesday, they already faced what coach Kevin OSullivan said was the most important point in the game. Starter Tucker Simpson had loaded the bases and given up a run to put Florida in a 1-0 hole. OSullivan replaced Simpson with junior left-hander Daniel Gibson, who walked in a run but proceeded to escape the inning and shut out the Knights during the next four frames while allowing just three hits. UF recovered for a 5-3 win. I didnt know [Gibson] was going to go into the game and give us four and a third (innings), OSullivan said. For us, it was down to that point in the game where we didnt want it to get away from us. Were in a situation where we cant be messing around. The Gators (14-16, 4-5 SEC) have gotten multiple dominant bullpen performances in the past week as they look to extend their winning streak to four games tonight in Starkville, Miss., against No. 18 Mississippi State (24-8, 3-6 SEC). Mood has changed in the bullpen a little bit, sophomore righthander Ryan Harris said. Everybodys ready to make a run at it. UF sophomore catcher Taylor Gushue said following the win against the Knights that he felt like the team was in a good place, playing loose and having fun. The current mood of the clubhouse is the opposite of what it was during its six-game losing streak earlier in the season, which Gushue called the teams low point in the season. Gushue added that there has not been any big mechanical change that has turned the pitchers performances around. They have simply found the strike zone. When pitchers arent effective, theyre not throwing strikes, Gushue said. We just pound it into the pitchers heads, Youve pitches for strikes, and theyve been doing that very well lately. During the losing streak, the Gators bullpen allowed 25 runs in 35 innings of work. In 22.2 ingames alone, the UF relievers have allowed only two runs. multiple impressive long-relief outings in both wins and losses since last week. In Floridas 2-1 loss to FSU on March 26, Danny Young gave up one run in four innings after coming in for Simpson. Gibson threw four shutout innings in last Fridays loss to Ole Miss. Harris has two appearances of two innings or more, and sophomore Johnny Magliozzi had scoreless appearances of 2.2 and 3.2 innings. Harris said the relievers ability to pitch effectively in longrelief, in addition to quality short outings, has been invaluable to the team. I think its just everybody is going out there and doing their job and staying out there as long as theyre needed, Harris said. I think its just a bulldog mentality. Everybody just wants to go and do as much as they can. Just go out there and not really worry about how long youre going to be out there. Just do it.

Florida hosts the 69th Annual Pepsi Florida Relays on Friday and Saturday at the Percy Beard Track at James G. Pressly Stadium. The Florida Relays is really a competition where you see so much going on, coach Mike Holloway said. I think the biggest part of it is that we get to compete in front of our home fans. Our whole team is competing in front of their family and their friends. Everybodys excited. Everybodys hyped about it. Under the guidance of former UF track coach Percy Beard, the Florida Relays began in 1939 and featured seven colleges, nine high schools and nearly 200 athletes. Seventy-four years later, the meet now features more than 3,000 athletes from around the world. Ive been around the Florida Relays since, like, 1977, Holloway said. Its a great competition. You see Olympians, world champions, NCAA champions and great high school athletes all come together in one venue. The thing that Im always impressed with is the energy that goes into the meet.

Texas. The event featured more than 6,500 athletes. Its important that we see the better competition, Holloway said. I dont think that the [Southeastern Conference] is a league where you need to hide from people. You need to be able to run fast, throw far, jump high, jump far against the best in the country. Thats what we set the schedule for. Florida faces stiff competition this weekend. No. 6 Florida State and No. 8 USC are among the schools competing on the mens side. The women take on No. 6 Texas and No. 12 UCF. Although the No. 3 Florida men and the No. 4 women are the highest ranked teams in each squads respectaking the Florida Relays lightly. We have to understand that we still have to perform, Holloway said. We can sleep in our own beds, we get to rest well, and we get to be focused, but we cant just take it for granted that were going to run well because its Florida Relays. Were very excited, but were going to take it very seriously. 16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2013 TRACK, from page 15Six top-12 teams at meetSchwarz hitting .355 in SEC playI was a little intimidated, a little nervous. Schwarz said early in the year. High school softball wasnt as big of a deal. I think college softball is a big step up. Im always expecting to play the best. But since her early-season slump, Schwarz has stepped up at the plate. She has raised her average to .275 and hit another two home runs. In Southeastern Conference play, Schwarz has been one of No. 3 Floridas (36-3, 10-2 SEC) biggest contributors at the plate. She leads the team with a .355 batting average and is second with a .500 on-base percentage. Once we started facing better pitching and better teams, I just stepped into the box knowing that I was facing a good pitcher, so whatever was going to happen, it was going to be a battle, Schwarz said. If I won, I won. If I lost, then I was going to go the next time. Walton has rewarded Schwarz for her improved play. ed every SEC game. Schwarz will likely get the starting nod when Florida plays Mississippi State (23-12, 2-7 SEC) this weekend in a threegame series at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. As a freshman, shes playing every game now, Walton said. That has also built her out, have a bad game, and shes going to play the next day. Although Schwarz has seen her plate prowess improve, she has remained a consistent Her defense is what sets her apart from all now shes being able to drive in runs, hit some home runs, get on base and do some things.

JOE MORGAN and GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WritersFlorida was a running team in 2012. Led by 1,000-yard rusher Mike Gillislee and mobile quarterback Jeff Driskel, the Gators boasted the third-best ground game in the Southeastern Conference last season with 187.7 yards per contest. But Florida wants increased balance in 2013. season under offensive coordinator Brent Pease last in the SEC and 118th nationally with 146.3 passing yards per game. Floridas inconsistent passing attack dragged its total offensive output per contest to 334 yards, ranking 12th in the SEC and 104th in the NCAA. Developing a more balanced attack this season hinges on Driskels development. coach Will Muschamp said. Weve made some vertical plays ners that can cover. So thats been pleasing to see. Jeffs been very Driskel has improved his accuracy by developing a quicker trigAfter a year in Peases scheme, Driskel is more comfortable in the pocket. Experience will do it and getin extra time, knowing the routes Driskel said. So its kind of evFlorida also hopes to aid Driskels development by improving pass protection. The Gators ranked 115th in the nation with 39 sacks allowed last season. [Pass protection] is something we talked about a lot in the offGarcia said. We got in, watched emphasize communication this Here Comes the Thud: When Matt Jones has the ball, Floridas Thud means the Gators defenders hit the ball carrier without pulling him to the ground. If Jones is the target, those thuds are not pleasant. When were tackling, they said. With Mike Gillislee headed to the NFL, UF has an opening at running back. Over the course of spring practice, Jones has distanced himself from his competition. ordinator Brent Pease said. You can see he understands things a lot more. Hes a strong, big kid. Hes got a really good football inJones said his development took a step forward when he and started to run more forcefully a lesson he said he learned tion with Muschamp. knew I had to hit it between the That downhill style was key to Gillislees success. As UFs workhorse in 2012, Gillislee carried 244 times for 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jones said. Coach talks about getting a lot of carries, but Ive still got to stay humble. Ive got a Jones carried 52 times 275 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman. He improved as the season went on, playing his best game against Florida State on Nov. 24. He carried the ball eight times for 81 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown that stretched UFs lead to 37-20 with 2:33 remaining in the fourth quarter. No light matter: Talent has never been an issue for D.J. Humphries. Rivals No. 2 overall player in the 2012 recruiting class, Humphries has always had ideal height and athleticism. Weight, however, has been an issue. In a conference where the top tackles usually weigh a minimum of 300 pounds, Humphries said he entered college at 250. His recruiting page on Rivals had him at 265. He was listed at 275 on UFs 2012 roster and is currently listed at 280, although he says he weighs 283. Ideally, I would like to be 300 by the season, but anywhere from Especially in run blocking and With Xavier Nixon graduated, Humphries is the heavy favorite to land the starting left tackle job in 2013.

JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer The pocket was breaking down, and Antonio Morrison saw EJ Manuel had nowhere to go. Florida State led Florida 20-16 with 11:16 remaining in the fourth quarter, and the Seminoles were driving. The Gators needed a big play to not only avoid their third straight loss in the rivalry but to keep their national championship hopes alive. Enter Morrison. looking for a hole, Lerentee McCray got his hands on the signal-caller, wrapping up the speedsters knees. Half a second later, Morrison arrived on the scene and leveled Manuel. The ball came out and squirted across the turf. Manuel lied motionless unconscious in a crumpled heap on Florida States 38yard line. Defensive end Dominique Easley Florida run to end the game. Morrison was the catalyst. I always do stuff like that, he said. Manuel was perhaps the hardest hit of Morrisons 34 tackle victims in 2012. Morrison developed a reputation for big hits during his Hes really a big hitter thats the thing about him. Tone just likes hitting, running back Matt Jones said. Hes a physical linebacker, and hes just a physical person. Youre going to feel Tone when he hits you. When asked to describe Morrison, cornerback Jeremy Brown provided a list: Mad man, hard hitter, crazy, mean, scary. Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. added: All he wants to do is clean somebodys clock. Morrison earned his reputation through unbridled enthusiasm in practice, something coach Will Muschamp loves to see. But Morrison becomes overzealous at times. He drew a scolding from Muschamp after delivering a jarring hit on tight end Kent Taylor in a practice drill on March 15. The Gators were not wearing pads that day. You want to be aggressive, Muschamp said. You want to play with great toughness, and its my job to make sure we judge the right way on what is too much and what is not enough. Hes certainly one that pushes the envelope. Morrison added: Sometimes, [rage] can control your whole game and youll mess up and do the wrong thing, so youve got to make sure you balance it out. Morrisons physicality is easier to deal with in Gainesville. Southeastern Conference athletes can take his hits better than his former teammates at Bolingbrook, Ill. High. Like Muschamp, Bolingbrook High coach John Ivlow used to step in and ask Morrison to ease up at practice. He plays the game the way it was meant to be played and supposed to be played, Ivlow said. Unfortunately, some guys havent got it like he does, and theyre neither as physical nor as tough as he is. Muschamp added: Its fun to coach a guy that has a lot of passion and energy. I like selfstarters. I like guys that go out there and selfstart, that self-motivate themselves, that you dont have to create an edge for them every day. And hes a young man that you dont have to create an edge for. When Anthony Morrison played football at Bolingbrook High, Antonio would always tag along. But Antonio, who was 7 years younger than his brother, wasnt there to watch. He always wanted to come out and do the drills with us, Anthony said. He didnt just come out and try to participate in the drills. He was actually trying to beat the guys I was working out with. Once Anthonys playing days ended, he took up coaching. As the defensive coordinator of Bolingbrook Highs sophomore team, he had the opportunity to coach his brother as a freshman. One year later, Antonio was suiting up with the varsity team. Throughout his football career, Antonio has always been one step ahead. He actually played D-end for us on varsity as a sophomore, Ivlow said. I always knew he was a football player. There was never any doubt in anybodys mind. Anthony always knew his brother was tough, but he gained new respect for Antonio through their player-coach relationship. During one game his freshman season, Antonio chased down a ball carrier 15 yards from behind and stripped the ball. Later in the same contest, Antonio made a diving interception to seal a Bolingbrook victory. Ever since he was young, he always just had that competitive edge, Anthony said. Me and my dad, we saw that he had that in him and just continued to try to push him along. We tried to make things as tough as possible. So that way, if he ever got put in a situation where things may become tough, he had already experienced some things like that. When Morrison committed to Florida, he was proactive he had to be. Although Morrison, a four-star prospect, was a key member of the nations third-ranked Bullard and Fowler overshadowed him. Eight members of UFs 2012 class were ranked higher nationally than Morrison. Eager to contribute from the get-go, Morrison graduated early from Bolingbrook High. He wanted to participate in the Gators spring practice. The fact that he graduated high school early and got down there that spring, that helped him tremendously, Ivlow said. Also, Morrison was undersized. He has gained 9 pounds since committing to UF but Morrison still weighs the least among the Gators four starting linebackers at 229 pounds. But size has not limited Morrison. Antonio is a beast. He goes hard every down, Fowler said. A lot of people think he is undersized, but for his size, he plays like one of the biggest linebackers in our league. Coaches immediately took notice of the Chicago backer. Morrison recorded nine tackles, including one for a loss, in the 2012 spring game. day he was allowed to hit someone, he made it very clear that he likes hitting people, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We like people who like hitting people on defense. He made that statement very clear early on. Morrison then built on a strong spring with a breakout performance in fall camp. Former UF defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was especially impressed. He really answers the bell when we challenge him, Quinn said on Aug. 16. The bell rang early in Floridas 20-17 win against Texas A&M on Sept. 8 in College Staseries, Will linebacker Jelani Jenkins suffered a fractured right thumb. One game and one series into his college career, Morrison was He responded with six tackles as part of a defensive effort that limited the Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the Aggies offense to only 99 yards during the second half. Quinn chalked up Morrisons maturity in a crucial situation to the linebackers desire to prove himself. He really wanted to play in the SEC what a challenge, Quinn said on Sept. 12. This guys a real competitor saying, OK, Im from Illinois. I want to go to the SEC. Im going early. Im going to Florida, and he really came in with this competitive linebacker mindset that you love. Thats one of the things I respect most about him. Early on in his career, it was early. It was, I want to come in, and I want to play, and I want to show that I belong. Hes certainly done that. Another bell is ringing in 2013. Morrison is a holdover on a Florida defense hit harder by graduation and early entries to the NFL draft than any player on the receiving end of one of his tackles. Even Quinn is gone, replaced by the newly promoted Durkin. The Gators needed a leader, and Muschamp deemed Morrison ready for the challenge. Only a sophomore, Morrison is stepping in for departed team captain Jon Bostic at middle linebacker. Lining up in the heart of Floridas defense, Morrison will be the hub for the Gators communication. Muschamp said Morrison needs to work on making checks at the line of scrimmage and staying level-headed in his increased role. Both skills will develop with experience. Hes a very emotional young man, and thats something that were trying to let him table a little bit, Muschamp said. Regardless of the results of the previous play or the circumstances or situations of the game, youve got to move and play the next play. Morrison will debut as the leader of Floridas new-look defense in the Gators spring Stadium. With a new coordinator, seven new starters and a new role, changes abound for Morrison and the UF defense. But one part of Morrison will never change. Every time I get in the game, Morrison said, I go hard. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator. org.

The event will have speed, endurance, challenge and extreme hopscotch competitions. Other than hopscotch, there will be four square, HulaHoop, jump rope and basketball. David Nassau, an 18-yearold UF marketing freshman, said he and his friend started Hopping 4 A Cure in January 2011. They got the idea in October 2010, when they dressed up in suits one day at their high school for National Suit inspired by How I Met Your Mother. They walked the halls jokteam. Other students were interested in joining, and the two decided to turn it into a charity event. Nassaus father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about eight years ago, and he experiences memory failure along with some other cognitive symptoms and minimal physical ones. He cant even ride a bike now, Nassau said. Valerie Sheehan, the 33-year-old owner of local startup company ToneRite, is one of the sponsors. ToneRite manufactures and sells a vibrating product for string instruments that mimics the effects of a person actually playing it.

Since then, about 1,400 members of UFs faculty and staff have used the program to manage about $700 million in research grants. For many of them, myinvestiGator is the answer to easing budgeting headaches and saving time. We really wanted to make it faculty focused, and it had been found to be a high-priority need, said Stephanie Gray, director of the UF Division of Sponsored Research. They wanted online banking but for grants. MindTree, a recent addition to the Gainesville area, helped implement the system, with a design that needed no training to use. The partworked with an outside company to develop internal software. Its very hard to create something easy to use for everybody, said Jason Williams, senior user experience designer at MindTree. You dont know how tech-savvy a happy medium. Gray said a task force was put together in 2010 to develop programs MyinvestiGator was delayed due to an overhaul of the human resources system.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2013 TUESDAY WAS WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY. KATIE BURNS CARLA VIANNAAlligator Contributing WritersIMPACT Autism is hosting the TEAxUF conference Saturday as part of Autism Awareness Month. The goal is to inform and inspire a conversation that will impact future technology and education in autism. I think it is important to remember that as students today, we are preparing to be tomorrows educators, doctors or therapists, said Ashley Giddings, a 22-year-old UF neurobiological sciences senior and president of IMPACT Autism. Tuesday was World Autism Awareness Day, where organizations around the world promoted awareness of the developmental disorder. Autism Speaks pushed the Light It Up Blue campaign, where landmarks and buildings in 750 cities used blue lights to illuminate for the cause. President Barack Obama also unveiled the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative, which aims at mapping out the human brain and its circuits in action, according to a CBS cures for autism, Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease, and it will start in 2014. Leilani Doty, director of UFs Memory and Cognitive Disorders clinics, said the plan was a major step toward the development of treatments and cures for brain health issues. It is something that we absolutely need, she said. Even though we do know some of the simple functions of the brain, there is really so much more that we need to learn about. Elizabeth Slonena, a 22-yearold UF psychology senior and president of the UF Neuroscience Club, said Obamas initiative will have a positive impact Itll really allow the neuroscience community to explore different aspects of neuroscience and go back to the basics, she said.Autism conference hopes for big impactLOCAL PATRICIA POTESTADESAlligator Contributing WriterKeep Alachua County Beautiful is recruiting volunteers to participate in the Great American Cleanup on Saturday. The countywide cleanup, which is part of the nationwide littercollection effort, will begin at 8 a.m. at Westside Park in Gainesville. [Saturday] is an easy way for people to get involved and celebrate the impact we can make in Alachua County, said Gina Hawkins, executive director of Keep Alachua County Beautiful. Volunteers will be assigned to locations throughout the county and provided with supplies for removing litter, planting and removing along Southwest Archer Road and West Newberry Road. Last year, 657 people participated. Since then, new locations have been added to the list of cleanup sites based on requests from people wanting to clean their communities. This year, more than 300 volunteers have already registered for the cleanup. The organization will continue accepting volunteers, even those who show up the day of. Danielle Mortimer, a 22-year-old UF English senior, has participated in the cleanup on behalf of Alpha Phi Omega for the past two years.

Because of the email, Bailey unsubscribed from the companys email feed and blocked future messages from his inbox. He said he wont do business with the company in the future because ordering requires keying in payment information. That speaks to incredible lack of security on their part, he said. To make up for the mistake, the company announced Thursday it would offer free delivery for all orders until Sunday. The company also sent an apology email that went straight to recipients spam folders, according to another post. Its just not our day, the post said.

As a third-year upperclassman, I have taken numerous online courses, ranging from Mans Food and Introduction to Managerial Accounting to Principles of Macroeconomics and Principles of Marketing. Some have been easy, like Mans Food, and attending live class would have felt counterproductive. I cant imagine what attending lectures would be like. Others have been difrently taking. As much as I appreciate the convenience of online classes, I have not yet gotten the hang of them. Most critical tracking and core classes are virtual for business majors. One-third of the degree can be completed through online courses (by looking at degree requirements and number of classes which are taught online). The convenience of attending class whenever and wherever seems great like if its 2 a.m. in my apartment, and Im curled up in my comforter with hot chocolate on one side and a pile of laundry on the other. Whats not so great is I dont watch lectures on time, if at all, depending on the class. I even forget Im enrolled in that class sometimes. A week before an exam, the stress and the number of times I go to Starbucks increases. Overwhelmed with the 30 hours of lectures I have yet to watch and the more than 200 pages I have to read, I ask myself: What was I doing for the past two months? How did I let myself do this again? It always happens. There is a lack of professor-to-student interaction. I have not met many of my professors. They seem like celebrities, and if I randomly come across them at the Emerson Courtyard, I am starstruck. Ive only seen them through my 15-inch Sony VAIO. Maybe I can break the ice with, Hello, Professor Rush, my name is Raksheen. I am among the hundreds of students in your class. Do you recognize me? No. How about my UFID number? Maybe. Another huge drawback is the lack of peer-to-peer interor someone to discuss todays lecture on crimes and torts, you that intellectual you wish to connect with. And trust me, this can be hard. Online classes are more diftake a lot more time and dedication. They generally consist of watching hours of lectures online, taking timed quizzes and, ultimately, showing up for an exam that will end late on a Tuesday night. At the end of the semester, it can feel very dissatisfying. If theres a concept that confuses me, I cant raise my hand and ask. I can email the professor and get a response in a timely 24 to 48 hours, but do I really want to go through the effort of writing a lengthy professional email to a stranger? Or do I want to take the time to get dressed, go to campus Ill skip, hoping its not on the exam. Most important, how much have I gained if I cannot implement what I have learned? Management requires the If I memorize 60 pages in four months and get an A, does that make me smart and destined to be a stellar manager? If I slack and get a C, should I then give up on that career path? There should be a component to the class that forces students to physically meet to discuss and implement what is being taught in lectures, whether thats through evaluating management techniques in a group, completing a group project or even further analyzing a case study. Even though theres the option to attend the live taping Missing out on someone speaking for two hours doesnt bother me. I can always watch the same lecture at double the I want to interact with live humans, not with my screen. Raksheen Ayaz is an advertising and business junior at UF.

This week, the long-awaited Arrested Development fourth season was given a release date: May 26. The new season will Finally my simple wish for the show is coming true: that it be broadcast every second around the clock to every television, computer or mobile device in existence, the shows creator and executive producer Mitch Hurwitz said in a statement, according to a Reuters article. Who cares if the show was originally canceled due to poor ratings? Arrested Development is the Cinderella of cable TV. It gives us hope for other shows that may not be doing so hot. We give a family-love-Michael LAUREL to Arrested Development. We cant wait to catch up with the REAL PEOPLE ALERT: Theres at least one high school in Georgia that has segregated proms. The school holds separate proms for white and non-white students. Homecoming is also normally segregated, with separate courts for each race, reportnot broken any civil rights laws because it doesnt actually sponsor the segregated prom dances or any prom dance, for that matter. Instead, parents and students are responsible for organizing and funding the private events. We give a yall-down-in-Georgia-need-to-get-with-the-program DART to racists. If we live in a time where the Earth can open sinkholes to swallow people, then we shouldnt have to worry about racist buttholes ruining prom for everyone. Prom is already not that great. Why would you make it worse? This week, Facebook held yet another press conference during which we all expected the company to announce it would be producing a Facebook phone. Luckily, its not. Sort of. Itll be called Facebook Home. Home turns your phone into a Facebook device, said a Wired article. Even with the lock screen on, a photo stream of home screen, too. Whats more, Home makes Facebook the primary means of communication on your device. The companys messaging software merges with SMS, and you can continue using its chat heads to text while inside another app. We give a we-guess-youre-allowed-to-take-over-a-whole-phonebut-maybe-were-already-on-our-phones-too-much FLART to Zuckerberg. We like your panache, but it feels unnecessary here. Thats all for this week, everybody. We want to end this Darts & Laurels with a little reminder to be nice to those around you. The end of any semester can get a little hectic and crazy, but that doesnt give us an excuse to behave like idiots. If everyone could be respectful for these last few weeks and then for the rest of their lives, that would be great. Thank you. Have a fun and safe weekend, and go Gators!

Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Goalie Mikey Meagher was pulled on March 30 in the loss. Read the story online at alligatorSports.org.MLB GatorsBoston Red Sox catcher David Ross went 1 for 3 and threw out two base runners in a 4-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Thursday night in New York. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterLess than two innings into the Gators game against UCF on Tuesday, they already faced what coach Kevin OSullivan said was the most important point in the game. Starter Tucker Simpson had loaded the bases and given up a run to put Florida in a 1-0 hole. OSullivan replaced Simpson with junior left-hander Daniel Gibson, who walked in a run but proceeded to escape the inning and shut out the Knights during the next four frames while allowing just three hits. UF recovered for a 5-3 win. I didnt know [Gibson] was going to go into the game and give us four and a third (innings), OSullivan said. For us, it was down to that point in the game where we didnt want it to get away from us. Were in a situation where we cant be messing around. The Gators (14-16, 4-5 SEC) have gotten multiple dominant bullpen performances in the past week as they look to extend their winning streak to four games tonight in Starkville, Miss., against No. 18 Mississippi State (24-8, 3-6 SEC). Mood has changed in the bullpen a little bit, sophomore righthander Ryan Harris said. Everybodys ready to make a run at it. UF sophomore catcher Taylor Gushue said following the win against the Knights that he felt like the team was in a good place, playing loose and having fun. The current mood of the clubhouse is the opposite of what it was during its six-game losing streak earlier in the season, which Gushue called the teams low point in the season. Gushue added that there has not been any big mechanical change that has turned the pitchers performances around. They have simply found the strike zone. When pitchers arent effective, theyre not throwing strikes, Gushue said. We just pound it into the pitchers heads, Youve pitches for strikes, and theyve been doing that very well lately. During the losing streak, the Gators bullpen allowed 25 runs in 35 innings of work. In 22.2 ingames alone, the UF relievers have allowed only two runs. multiple impressive long-relief outings in both wins and losses since last week. In Floridas 2-1 loss to FSU on March 26, Danny Young gave up one run in four innings after coming in for Simpson. Gibson threw four shutout innings in last Fridays loss to Ole Miss. Harris has two appearances of two innings or more, and sophomore Johnny Magliozzi had scoreless appearances of 2.2 and 3.2 innings. Harris said the relievers ability to pitch effectively in longrelief, in addition to quality short outings, has been invaluable to the team. I think its just everybody is going out there and doing their job and staying out there as long as theyre needed, Harris said. I think its just a bulldog mentality. Everybody just wants to go and do as much as they can. Just go out there and not really worry about how long youre going to be out there. Just do it.

Florida hosts the 69th Annual Pepsi Florida Relays on Friday and Saturday at the Percy Beard Track at James G. Pressly Stadium. The Florida Relays is really a competition where you see so much going on, coach Mike Holloway said. I think the biggest part of it is that we get to compete in front of our home fans. Our whole team is competing in front of their family and their friends. Everybodys excited. Everybodys hyped about it. Under the guidance of former UF track coach Percy Beard, the Florida Relays began in 1939 and featured seven colleges, nine high schools and nearly 200 athletes. Seventy-four years later, the meet now features more than 3,000 athletes from around the world. Ive been around the Florida Relays since, like, 1977, Holloway said. Its a great competition. You see Olympians, world champions, NCAA champions and great high school athletes all come together in one venue. The thing that Im always impressed with is the energy that goes into the meet.

Texas. The event featured more than 6,500 athletes. Its important that we see the better competition, Holloway said. I dont think that the [Southeastern Conference] is a league where you need to hide from people. You need to be able to run fast, throw far, jump high, jump far against the best in the country. Thats what we set the schedule for. Florida faces stiff competition this weekend. No. 6 Florida State and No. 8 USC are among the schools competing on the mens side. The women take on No. 6 Texas and No. 12 UCF. Although the No. 3 Florida men and the No. 4 women are the highest ranked teams in each squads respectaking the Florida Relays lightly. We have to understand that we still have to perform, Holloway said. We can sleep in our own beds, we get to rest well, and we get to be focused, but we cant just take it for granted that were going to run well because its Florida Relays. Were very excited, but were going to take it very seriously. 16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 2013 TRACK, from page 15Six top-12 teams at meetSchwarz hitting .355 in SEC playI was a little intimidated, a little nervous. Schwarz said early in the year. High school softball wasnt as big of a deal. I think college softball is a big step up. Im always expecting to play the best. But since her early-season slump, Schwarz has stepped up at the plate. She has raised her average to .275 and hit another two home runs. In Southeastern Conference play, Schwarz has been one of No. 3 Floridas (36-3, 10-2 SEC) biggest contributors at the plate. She leads the team with a .355 batting average and is second with a .500 on-base percentage. Once we started facing better pitching and better teams, I just stepped into the box knowing that I was facing a good pitcher, so whatever was going to happen, it was going to be a battle, Schwarz said. If I won, I won. If I lost, then I was going to go the next time. Walton has rewarded Schwarz for her improved play. ed every SEC game. Schwarz will likely get the starting nod when Florida plays Mississippi State (23-12, 2-7 SEC) this weekend in a threegame series at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. As a freshman, shes playing every game now, Walton said. That has also built her out, have a bad game, and shes going to play the next day. Although Schwarz has seen her plate prowess improve, she has remained a consistent Her defense is what sets her apart from all now shes being able to drive in runs, hit some home runs, get on base and do some things.

JOE MORGAN and GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WritersFlorida was a running team in 2012. Led by 1,000-yard rusher Mike Gillislee and mobile quarterback Jeff Driskel, the Gators boasted the third-best ground game in the Southeastern Conference last season with 187.7 yards per contest. But Florida wants increased balance in 2013. season under offensive coordinator Brent Pease last in the SEC and 118th nationally with 146.3 passing yards per game. Floridas inconsistent passing attack dragged its total offensive output per contest to 334 yards, ranking 12th in the SEC and 104th in the NCAA. Developing a more balanced attack this season hinges on Driskels development. coach Will Muschamp said. Weve made some vertical plays ners that can cover. So thats been pleasing to see. Jeffs been very Driskel has improved his accuracy by developing a quicker trigAfter a year in Peases scheme, Driskel is more comfortable in the pocket. Experience will do it and getin extra time, knowing the routes Driskel said. So its kind of evFlorida also hopes to aid Driskels development by improving pass protection. The Gators ranked 115th in the nation with 39 sacks allowed last season. [Pass protection] is something we talked about a lot in the offGarcia said. We got in, watched emphasize communication this Here Comes the Thud: When Matt Jones has the ball, Floridas Thud means the Gators defenders hit the ball carrier without pulling him to the ground. If Jones is the target, those thuds are not pleasant. When were tackling, they said. With Mike Gillislee headed to the NFL, UF has an opening at running back. Over the course of spring practice, Jones has distanced himself from his competition. ordinator Brent Pease said. You can see he understands things a lot more. Hes a strong, big kid. Hes got a really good football inJones said his development took a step forward when he and started to run more forcefully a lesson he said he learned tion with Muschamp. knew I had to hit it between the That downhill style was key to Gillislees success. As UFs workhorse in 2012, Gillislee carried 244 times for 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jones said. Coach talks about getting a lot of carries, but Ive still got to stay humble. Ive got a Jones carried 52 times 275 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman. He improved as the season went on, playing his best game against Florida State on Nov. 24. He carried the ball eight times for 81 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown that stretched UFs lead to 37-20 with 2:33 remaining in the fourth quarter. No light matter: Talent has never been an issue for D.J. Humphries. Rivals No. 2 overall player in the 2012 recruiting class, Humphries has always had ideal height and athleticism. Weight, however, has been an issue. In a conference where the top tackles usually weigh a minimum of 300 pounds, Humphries said he entered college at 250. His recruiting page on Rivals had him at 265. He was listed at 275 on UFs 2012 roster and is currently listed at 280, although he says he weighs 283. Ideally, I would like to be 300 by the season, but anywhere from Especially in run blocking and With Xavier Nixon graduated, Humphries is the heavy favorite to land the starting left tackle job in 2013. While most players are using techniques, Humphries top priority remains adding good weight. Its just right weight, you want to put on too much weight Contact Joe Morgan joemorgan@ alligator.org.
