The millennial generation was raised watching shark-friendly movies like Finding Nemo and Shark Tale, but theres one annual series that forces students to delay their Summer B studying for obsessive television watching Discovery Channels Shark Week. Cox Media consultant Raul Martinez said trends show the Gainesville ratings parallel or exceed the national show ratings. We know that Shark Week gets a lot of viewership, Martinez said. But for George Burgess, the director of the program for shark research at the Florida Museum of Natural History, the value of sharks extends far beyond the entertainment in Shark Week. A shark is a topic of great interest to the public, Burgess said, a natural phenomenon that we cant control, like hurricanes and lightning. Burgess has been featured on Shark Week regularly and said he hopes to see a lot more education during the weeks shows. But he said he knows the over-the-top circumstances portrayed by the show are what interest UF students. Its the thought process of dying in the mouth of an animal or being eaten, he said. UF entrepreneurship masters student sharks, but thats not why he chooses to watch Shark Week. Its almost like a cultural event, he said. I tune into Shark Week because of all the hype and marketing around it. Discovery Channels character-driven approach with Shark Week 2013 has created a larger opportunity for audience interaction.

The eight brushes given by Bacon to fellow artist Clive Barker in 1978 are in a paint-splattered butter bean tin inside a clear box. They have an estimated price of 20,000-25,000 pounds ($31,000 to $46,000). Bacons paintings have sold for as much as $86 million at auction.

A sideburns contest honoring a U.S. Navy commodore known for his impressive facial hair is marking the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie. The Erie-Times News reports that the winner of the Perry Burns contest will be named this week. Judges will decide who sports the sideburns most like those of Oliver Hazard Perry, who defeated British forces in September 1813. He is considered a War of 1812 hero. Historical portraits suggest that Perry wore long muttonchop sideburns that extended toward his lips. Erie residents say the town had a beard-growing contest marking the battles 150th anniversary in 1963. Participant Kevin Kantz says hes been growing out his sideburns since July.

A full day of events was on tap during the Maine Redneck Blank Games. Organizer Harold Brooks changed the name under pressure from the International Olympics Committee, but noted that everyone knows what the blank stands for. Fridays events included a wedding and a demolition derby. Other events over the weekend included bobbing for pigs feet, toilet seat horseshoes and a greased watermelon relay race. The idea behind the event, Brooks said, was to have what amounts to a great big outdoor picnic and pig roast for hardworking people whove earned the right to blow off some steam. Being a redneck, he said, isnt about living in a trailer, or getting drunk. A redneck is someone who works hard. They say their neck is red because they work outside. A redneck can make fun of himself and have a good time, said Brooks, whos a general contractor. The Redneck Olympic Games Melissa Kahan, Kelsey Meany,

Dave Clark created Gator Glory, a coleus plant with a gold band around orange leaves. He said the band symbolizes the color used for agricultural academic regalia. Clark teaches Plants, Gardening and You, a UF introductory course that includes lectures on coleus breeding. The idea for the orange plant originated in that course one of Clarks students suggested creating an orange coleus plant. It took us about four years, he said. Clark said Gator Glory symbolizes the teaching and research at UF and the Institute of Plant Innovation of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. talent and school spirit come together, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. Clark said the university doesnt grows well in Floridas warm weather, he said, but it is not available to purchase. UF agricultural operations management senior Rebecca Lee, 23, said it would be really neat if the Gator It is another way to represent the college in a beautiful manner, she said. Clark said his goal was to have Gator Glory displayed on the UF commencement stage. Gator Glory was displayed at the 2013 spring commencement ceremony, and there are plans to display the orange plant at the summer and fall ceremonies as well, he said.

The children were charged with selecting their favorite among three teams of robots. Their votes were cast in plastic buckets with Lego bricks matching the colors of the teams tables as part of a UF College of Engineering student competition. UF mechanical engineering professor Dan Dickrell said the teams were composed of freshmen taking an introductory engineering design and programming course. broken into teams and tasked with designing an interactive robot that incorporated some form of art and mimicked life. Only three of 30 designs were chosen to compete at Thursdays second annual competition after they were whittled We wanted the students to kind of meet the end user of the products theyll be making, Dickrell said. Among those deemed worthy were Dr. Hoot, a robot resembling an owl that spins its head when it hears loud noises, and Cheeta, a robot built to mirror its namesake with an attached hand crank that moves its legs. Opposing these two teams was a conglomerate of robots covered wings as it wandered carelessly across the atrium Nine-year-old patient Anna Rose said Sparkle was her favorite. I like it because its beautiful, she said through her breathing mask, which was decorated with Disney characters. er to the hospital to visit her brother, said she liked all of the robots.

Things like this that bring the normal back into our patients lives are wonderful, Green said. She said Sparkle rocked the competition. Calm fell over the atrium as each child cast his or her Lego vote and left with parents and caretakers, taking their laughter and heavy footsteps with them. The red, yellow and blue Legos were tallied. In a landslide victory, the yellow teams Sparkle and its favorite robot.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 STATE THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSTARKE A man convicted of murdering eight people in Miami-Dade County in the late 1970s was executed Monday night at the Florida State Prison, despite his lawyers pleas that he was too mentally ill to be put to death. John Errol Ferguson, 65, died at 6:17 p.m., following a lethal injection. The execution came less than two hours after a stay. Ferguson made a brief statement before 25 witnesses, including family members of the victims. I just want everyone to know that I am the prince of God and will rise again, he said calmly. About three minutes into the procedure, he moved his head, strained his neck, moved his feet, put his head back down and closed his eyes. The entire execution took 16 minutes. About three dozen people protested across the street from the prison. Ferguson and two others were convicted of killing six people in 1977 during a robbery at a Carol City house used by marijuana dealers. Ferguson dressed as a utility worker to gain access and let his accomplices inside. Most of the victims were friends who happened to drop by the house while Ferguson and the other men were there. The victims were blindfolded and bound, and the encounter turned violent after a mask fell off one of Fergusons gang members and his face was spotted by a victim. The decision was made to kill all eight people in the house. Two survived. At the time, it was the worst mass slaying ever in Miami-Dade County. Ferguson also was convicted of the 1978 murder of a 17-year-old couple, Brian Glenfeldt and Belinda Worley, from Hialeah. They were shot as Ferguson, dressed as a police a lovers lane. Worley was raped. The randomness of the crime and the age of the victims stunned many in Miami. Ferguson confessed to killing the two kids after he was arrested in April 1978 for the earlier killings, court records show. Worleys mother, Edna Worley, waited for decades for Fergusons execution but died last year. Ferguson chose to eat the same food other prisand vegetable patty, white bread, stewed tomatoes, potato salad, carrots and iced tea.Convicted murderer executed in Starke Aug. 9, 1977 ployees are tested in a $10,000 investigation prompted by a toxic gas leak that had occurred about two months earlier. ness. Symptoms of the illness include nausea, severe headaches, vomiting, blistering of the ears and nose, itching and light-headedness.

BenHamid, who was serving a 25-year prison sentence for the investigators that he took a Greyhound bus across Florida and then hitched a ride to Lousiana. Aug. 6, 1992 Gainesville City Commissioners approve an increase to Regional Transit System bus fares that is expected to generate about $300,000. Full fares are raised from 50 to 75 cents, while half fares are raised from 25 to 35 cents and grade-school student fares are raised from 10 to 25 cents.

There are no immediate markers indicating any graves. There are no signs of death. With its wild grass meadows and more resemblance to a hiking trail. Located just outside Gainesville and close to Paynes Prairie, the conservation cemetery specializes in natural or green burials. There, the deceased are not injected with are biodegradable. Ten or 15 years ago this wasnt being done anywhere, but now there are dozens and dozens of these green cemeteries, said Robert Hutchinson, a gravedigger at the cemetery. 2010, and now about 75 people are buried there. Another approximately 250 people have predesignated the ing ground, Hutchinson said. With a conventional burial, a concrete or metal vault is placed in the ground, Freddie Johnson, a founder of Conservation Burial Inc., the zation that started PCCC, said its conservation cemetery in Florida. Most people choose a traditional convention, Johnson said. [Green burials] are rational and still maintains all reverence and respect and dignity for their loved ones, he said. However, Paul Chadik, associate professor and department head of UFs Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment, explained that with both types of burials, groundwater contamination, among other adverse effects, can be a concern. Over 90 percent of the people in Florida use groundwater as a drinking water source, Chadik said. You want to be able to protect that source from contamination. Because natural burial can be better for the environment and also less expensive, Joseph Fitzgerald decided to be buried at the PCCC. The 47year-old Hawthorne native was laid to rest at the conservation cemetery in February. He loved to go out and visit Paynes Prairie, said his brother, Michael Fitzgerald. He liked being outdoors and the natural aspects of Florida. Describing the day of his brothers funeral, Michael Fitzgerald said walking to the burial site was more like a peaceful nature hike. It was sunny out and very pleasant, he said. Youre out in nature, and you feel like you are in the greater cycle of life.Cemetery offers unique way to go greenAbout 75 are buried there

Todays question: Are you watching Shark Week?Whats in a Title: The Importance of the D in DemocratTheres a tired argument that has been used time and time again by Republicans. If Bush were president and doing the same things Obamas doing, hed never get a break. Theyve got a point. If there was no D next to the presidents name and instead an R, how would the public view the president? Since the beginning of his second term, the president has progressed the drone wars, sustained the war in Afghanistan, admitted to executing American citizens without due process, continued mass surveillance efforts, and done nothing but talk about the torture at Guantanamo. And thats to say nothing about his issues with freedom of the press, the Snowden asylum dilemma, the queer aftermath of the Benghazi incident, the Syrian red line issue, etc., etc. from being available over the counter as late as a few months ago. Theres just so much that can be addressed. Bradley Manning, domestic drones, raids on legal medical marijuana dispensaries, etc. again. And Obamas second term has only just started: It will end in 2017. Where will things go from here? A classic response might be, The president has a lot on his plate. He cant address all of these issues. The president does have a lot on his plate; maybe too much. In fact, all of these problems are caused in some way or another by the government itself being too big and playing a role in too much. The power of the executive branch in particular has grown far beyond what any single person can rationally oversee. Who will take his place and inherit these powers when the time comes? Who will represent the Democrats and inherit that D as a candidate? Will it be Hillary Clinton? She stepped down as Secretary of State earlier this year, yielding the position to John Kerry. Did she step down to prepare for her campaign with ample time? If so, perhaps she also wanted to distance herself from the Obama administrations dismal abuse of power. In many ways, this country saw much better times when least when Bill Clinton was president this country saw ecoforeign policy that was a whole lot better than todays. In any case, its going to be a tough choice as usual: Column A or Column B, the lesser evil versus the greater evil. How can we trust any of the Ds after Obama? If the choices are bad enough, maybe well look to the third parties. No matter what you believe, you have to admit that at least parties like the Green Party and the Libertarian Party stand on principled ground, much unlike the current parties. Or maybe theyre just as bad, promising us a world of good only to deliver quite the opposite. We wont know until we try.Anti-statists should use, embrace welfareAs hypocritical as it may sound, libertarians, antistatists and market anarchists should embrace the being ultra-purist sectarians or opportunistic sellouts, but free-minded citizens should not pigeonhole themselves to either of these two dispositions. If any libertarian were to live a purist, anti-statist lifestyle, it would require not walking on public sidewalks, not driving on public roads, not receiving care from government-licensed doctors and not drinking municipal water. It can be argued that libertarians would be not be able to do anything since the state owns all property and merely rents it to us via taxation. Under these circumstances it seems impossible to be a libertarian and not violate your principals, especially while both Democrats and Republicans are pushing for massive entitlement programs. Both the left and right support the expansion of the welfare state by supporting programs such as Social Security, Medicare, Veterans Affairs hospitals and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Any politician that would suggest we eliminate any of these programs would be committing political suicide since most of society has yet to come to the conclusion that the private sector can offer these same services at a more efleft with no alternative. Yet despite the overwhelming fear of being a labeled a sellout and violating your own personal convictions, a libertarian can and should use any, if not all, of these programs. Let us suppose there were a gang in Gainesville that regularly burglarized homes and this gang were too powerful to be stopped by law enforcement or private citizens. This gang of thieves does not keep their plunder but gives it away to other residents of Gainesville. The victims of this theft would not be acting immorally by attempting to recoup the goods stolen from them. Anyone who is opposed to this theft would actually be acting as a moral agent by retrieving these goods since they are relieving this gang of their stolen possessions. Professor of economics at Loyola University Walter Block is one of the many anarcho-capitalists that defends anti-statists using public assistance programs. Blocks defense of libertarians using public assistance is derived from the non-aggression principle (NAP), which libertarian philosophy is based upon. Since the NAP states that the initiation of force is illegitimate, one would assume that using public services would contradict the NAP because force was used to acquire the funds for these programs. Block explains in a piece titled May a Libertarian Take Money From the Government? that using public assistance does not violate the NAP. Block explains that if Z were to steal goods from Y and give them to X, X would be completely moral in using these goods because X never initiated force against Y to obtain these goods. Thus, X has never violated the NAP and is completely moral in consuming these goods and does not violate the NAP by doing so. Block goes on to state, Certainly, all libertarian theories of private property rights, of punishment, would agree that of all people in the world, Z is the absolutely least deserving of this foodstuff. Keep in mind the fact that the state creates nothing and has absolutely no resources except for the ones that it steals from its citizens. Therefore the best current option for counteracting this theft is to participate in entitlement programs. Being a libertarian does not mean being a martyr for the cause of free markets and peace. There is nothing wrong with walking on government sidewalks, eating price-controlled bread or living in a rent-controlled apartment because none of these conditions are of libertarian making. These conditions are simply our current matrix. and libertarians should take advantage of them while still agitating and speaking out against the state. T.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Doctor Who fans around the world tuned in to various BBC who would play the role of The Doctors 12th incarnation. This prompted every social media site Im a member of and Im sure even ones Im not to explode with activity to the point where it was all I could see on my feeds without scrolling an irksome amount. Doctor Who on Facebook, Doctor Who on Tumblr, Doctor Who in chat rooms, Twitter I bet even MySpace exploded with activity. Im not part of the fandom, so seeing only Doctor Who quickly got repetitive and old quickly, not unlike radio stations overplaying a song to the point where its merely annoying. But then, I realized something: Not everyone cares about what I post. Ive when World Cup matches were on. Itd be a double standard if I spoke out against it. This was a momentous occasion for that group of fans. It was their day to rejoice, examine, criticize and discuss the merits the new Doctor has as an actor and then speculate on how he would perform as the Doctor. I was also lucky enough to hold my tongue when others complained about the Doctor Who fans and then get metaphorically eaten alive for having the gall to complain during the rapid reaction. Seeing what happened to those people was enough to cause me to reconsider. Essentially, this column comes down to a reminder of civility. Granted, there isnt as much a need to make that reminder to those reading this column in print. For those reading online who have a comments section about 300 words down, it is more relevant. For those reading online who can share this article on Facebook while adding their own editorial, this reminder is pertinent. For those reading online who can respond in about 40 characters and include the link, this goes out to you. This isnt to slam the online commenters please dont make that assumption. Commenting provides discussion of issues and adds to the marketplace of ideas. My point lies in the inherent basis of Internet comments, which is the anonymity that accompanies most sites. That anonymity allows for people to become venomous, attacking the other people instead of debating with them. It can even lead to people attacking celebrities for no reason more than that theyre celebrities. Behind a username, people can act less than human. There are countless tales of cyberbullying and of people being deconstructed while on the Internet. These stories are not limited to middle and high school students. Ive seen the same thing happen to college freshmen, college seniors and college graduates. As the semester winds down and we get a break, Im sure a good chunk of us will spend our time online. We might be behind usernames instead of tied to Facebook accounts accounts like to encourage civil responses, even if the other side refuses to do the same for you. Oh, and spoiler alert: The 12th Doctor is Peter Capaldi. Logan Ladnyk is a UF journalism junior. His columns appear Tuesdays.On encouraging courtesyColumn Logan Ladnykopinions@alligator.org Ive been working with the Alligator for nearly ions editor. As my time here at UF comes to a close and as I wonder about my own future, I feel more strongly than ever that the future of us all depends in no small part on the Internet. Before I get into the meat of that topic, Id like to say a few words about my own positions. Ive expressed many libertarian ideas in my pieces for the Alligator. I wish to make it clear that Im humanity. The monopoly over the legal use of force that the state possesses can be very useful in pursuing human well-being. However, I also realize that by giving the state power it isnt due that Im probably helping create a very scary future. Its a tough question, but I err on the side of having a smaller state with limited powers. And how could I not? Too often, the state ends up creating more harm than the problem it pretends to be solving. Not only that, but I fear greatly that with every responsibility we cast onto the government that were only getting closer to what Edward Snowden called turnkey tyranny. Whether or not you believe in the benevolence of any socalled public servant, you have to admit that the possibility of a tyrant one day misusing his or her powers one day does exist. The public, I think, can provide the greatest check to any regime in a democratic system. In order for us to check our government, though, we must become informed. Maybe Ive been preaching to the choir, and maybe youre sick and tired of me harping on this point, but its a very, very important point. We live in an age in which were all drowning in media, and yet how many of us bother taking the time to share a news link on Facebook? The act may seem trivial, but trust me when I say around on the News Feed awakens the public consciousness in a way that could not have been so easily done in the time before the Internet. Despite the somber tone of many of my pieces, I have a great amount of hope for the future. Alternative sources of news media like RT, which has classically played a less-reputable ing population of people hungry to know the dirty deeds of the state. The Young Turks on YouTube is now one of the most widely watched news sources anywhere, and they started only as a ragtag group of people who wanted to report and editorialize. And this is a good sign, too. Theres a growing number of people who are not only hungry to learn more, but who see through the lies that the populace has historically fallen into that is a consciousness-changing moment in history, when the people can truly democratize information, when you dont need to have a billion dollars to broadcast yourself to a million and maybe even a billion people. One of the most exquisite qualities of this age is that its all practically free. Information is free! What a revolution! This is true power, and its scary to the power structures that have classically enjoyed the privilege of controlling information and controlling a docile and uninformed public. How lucky we are to live in such a time. Such consciousness-changing events have happened before, but they have never been so impactful. The release of the Pentagon Papers in the 70s, for example, taught us that what Orwell had warned us about so long ago could actually be true: The government can lie to us, and it probably does. Whistleblowers are now seen by a great many as heroes. And the government is seen as the bad guys. And rightfully so. The Internet is no less than the greatest invention the world has ever known. The freedoms we enjoy there must be protected at all costs. If ever the day should come when the turnkey tyranny Snowden spoke of should come to pass, all will be lost. On Thursday, Ill talk a bit more on this issue as well as what the future may hold for humanity as a whole.

The goal, Vito said, is to empower girls through forms of selfexpression. I want to be able to sing better, said 14-year-old Leah Elholm, who began learning keyboard on Monday. Vito, who worked at a similar camp in Jacksonville, said she thinks the one-week format of the program is part of what makes it empowering. of time like that is you really learn how possible things are, Vito said. I expect to see a personal transformation from everyone. I think its going to be a beautiful experience. members and will perform a showcase on Saturday at 1982 Bar, which Vito owns. The girls will perform songs written during the camp as well as covers of classics. Admission will be $5 to $10. If the Q-and-A session following Mondays concert is any indication, the girls will be more than ready to rock by then. When a guitarist said the set was quieter than usual, the girls looked around excitedly. Awesome! the girls said. Play it loud!Rock out: Weeklong music camp to conclude in 1982 showcase IPADS CAN BE CHECKED OUT AT LIBRARY WEST.

The center is aiming to increase the number of lecture videos available to mobile devices, Smith said, and it has developed an application to create online exams. Smith said phones are being used in the classroom to incorporate instant student feedback and to promote interactive learning. Educational apps can be used for instant polls and quizzes. ski said technology allows for classes to be more convenient, interactive and affordable. Students these days do a lot of mulit a little boring reading an old-fashioned textbook. Tablet devices are also widely used at UF. iPads are available for checkout at Library West, and Stacey Ewing, information commons coordinator at Library West, said in an email interview that another proposal submitted for more iPads was approved. But things dont always go according to plan. Melissa Espino, an overnight shift supervisor at Library West, said the iPads were intended for educational purposes, but many students seem to use them solely for recreation. Only a few use it to take notes in class, she said.Increase in smartphones, tablets has UF rethinking tech roleRyan Jones / Alligator StaffAbout 19 percent of students use an iPad, like the one above, or other smartphone or tablet for educational purposes, according to Millennial Branding and www.internships.com.

Jones missed the start of UFs camp due to a viral infection. Injuries strike Gators before camp PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Colin Thompson was expected to offer another dimension to Floridas tight end group in 2012 before a foot injury derailed his season before it began. Now healthy, Thompson has impressed coach Will Muschamp early in fall camp. I think Colin Thompsons done some nice things for us blocking from a point (and in) the passing game, Muschamp said Monday. Weve improved from where we were from the spring, and thats what you want to do is take a step forward from where you were. I think certainly weve taken some positive steps from spring at this point. Thompson, who was rated the nations No. 2 tight end by ESPN and Scout.com coming out of high school, underwent surgery in the spring of 2012 and was expected to practice. Instead, he was forced to go under the knife a second time, having a screw inserted into his right foot to help repair a fractured bone last August. He eventually earned a medical redshirt after missing the entire season. Thompson enters 2013 as one of roster. The group will compete to who was selected by the Washingthe 2013 NFL Draft. cal for Floridas offense. 45 passes for 559 yards in 2012 each led the team and hauled in three touchdowns while serving as Driskel. Given that Floridas group of wide receivers continues to be a work-in-progress, the Gators are searching aggressively for a tight end that can become Driskels main safety valve. player for us; Hes a great athlete, Driskel said at UFs media day. him too much, but we do have a couple of guys who have stepped up over the summer, and Im excited to see them moving forward. Driskel singled out Thompson as someone he hopes will continue to progress. to be healthy, Driskel said, so (I am) really excited to see where hes at. Similar to the receiving corps, Floridas tight ends have nothing resembling a track record of sucends, only two Kent Taylor and Clay Burton have caught passes during their college career. Neither has more than two receptions. The group also includes Tevin Westbrook, who did not record a reception while playing in 13 games last season after switching from defensive end to tight end before the year, and Trevon Young, a lastminute addition to Floridas most recent recruiting class who played only two years of high school football.

He said he had a stomach ache, Muschamp said. I hoped he ate a bad cheeseburger, but it wasnt. Shortly afterward, the team medical staff determined Driskel needed to have his appendix removed. The timetable for his return is about two on how his body recovers. Im starting to feel better already, Driskel said ies for everybody. Were not going to rush anything, but I dont think Im going to miss too much. Ill be there getting the mental reps; Ill be right there behind the huddle.

Unlike last season, when UF entered camp facing a tense quarterback competition and was starting the Brent Peases system, few storylines were expected in 2013.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 AS STEIN ON TV You were the Chosen One! It was said you would destroy the Sith, not join them! Bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness! Obi-Wan Kenobi shouted those words at Anakin Skywalker (Spoiler alert: Anakin becomes Darth Vader), but the same lines are equally applicable to Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez was the Chosen One of Major League Baseball. He was going to be the one to vanquish Barry Bonds tainted marks and restore balance to the record book. But on Monday, MLB suspended Rodriguez for his role in the Biogenesis scandal and his attempts to cover up evidence implicating him. Even though Rodriguez didnt fail a drug test, his legacy is as tainted as his urine would have been. He doesnt need to fail a test. Rodriguez is appealing his suspension, but MLB reportedly has a novels worth of evidence pinning A-Rod to the Biogenesis clinic. I watched Rodriguez win two MVP awards in New York, and I marveled as he put the 2009 Yankees on his back en route to a World Series title. Those were the memories I expected to have when I told my kids about him. The prodigious shots that carried over Monument Park, the walk-off homers, how he graciously accepted a move to third base to allow Yankees captain Derek Jeter to continue playing shortstop, even though he was clearly the superior defender. Nope. Not anymore. The only things people are going to remember are that he cheated, lied and tried to game the system. That ridiculous megacontract might get a mention, too. matter anymore, and thats a shame. He was a great player. He was easily on pace to set the home run record and reach 3,000 hits. Injuries sapped his strength during the last few seasons, and now the imminent suspension puts him out of action for an entire year. of reach. He was a 40-40 player and a three-time MVP. Doesnt matter. man Albert Pujols may be the next great hope, but he has slumped since leaving the Cardinals, leaving no one to cleanse the record books. I always thought Rodriguez was very image-conscious. I thought the reason why he struggled in the playoffs was because he put so much pressure on himself. He wanted people to like him. But maybe I was wrong. Someone who was interested in his legacy wouldnt put it in such danger by using steroids. I thought Rodriguez wanted to be the good guy, but now hes just the steroid-using Darth A-Rod. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@alligator.org. A-Rods ruined legacy Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 Junior wins Male High Point award It was Dwyers second medal of the meet. He claimed a sliver in the 200-meter free earlier in the week. Junior Elizabeth Beisel also got in on the medal action with a bronze performance on Sunday in the 400-meter individual medley with a time of 4:31.69. In his World Championships of the 400-meter IM with a time of 4:13.72. Two other Gators posted their day. Freshman Sinead Russell took (2:10.46), and junior Hilda Luthersdottirs 31.37 in the 50-meter breast preliminaries earned her 13th-place But Lochte didnt see only success.

He was named the Male High Point of the meet for his efforts. the opening day of the meet, in the was more than half of a second ahead of second place. Two days later he claimed the 400-meter IM gold medal (4:11.11) by blowing out the competition. The closest swimmer was 4.7 seconds behind Rousseaus pace. on Friday in the 200-meter free (1:48.51) and again on Saturday for the 200-meter IM (1:59.58) to complete the sweep.

I dont think its ever good for you that your starter is not taking the reps at any position, Muschamp said, certainly the quarterback position. Florida is in better shape along the offensive line and at tailback. Muschamp said Tyler Moore, a transfer from other offensive linemen who earned regular playing time last season. At running back, Mack Brown, Kelvin Taylor and Mark Herndon will split snaps in Jones absence. Muschamp also mentioned Joyer and Trey Burton as two other candidates to earn work out Weve got a motto around here: man down, man up, Muschamp said.
