UF WAS RANKED NO. 3 IN KAITLYN WILSONAlligator Contributing WriterThe Gator Nation is well known for its rowdy reptiles orange and blue, but according to The Princeton Review, this may no longer be the case. In the 2014 edition of The Best 378 Colleges, UF comes in at No. 11 in Students Pack the Stadiums. Last year, UF was ranked No. 3 on that list. The No. 1 spot went to the University of Notre Dame, followed by the University of Southern California and The University of North Carolina at was the University of Missouri, Florida State University scored one higher than UF, taking the No. 10 spot. The books co-author, David Soto, said this review was based on a survey answered by 126,000 students at Americas top 378 colleges. Those students went to our online survey and told us about various aspects of campus life including their social life, academics, student life and other important issues on campus, Soto said. We use that information to compile our 62 ranking lists many of which the University of Florida is on this year. Tori Petry, a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior, said she attends every Gators home game but understands why the ranking dropped so dramatically. Im really disappointed in the student body for letting that drop so far, Petry said, citing the low turnout at last years games. I think our school is prestigious for sports, as well as academics, and we have a long history and tradition of football. There isnt any reason why we shouldnt be able to pack out the stadium, regardless of ranking. Other students, like Wynston Jenns, a 21-year-old elementary education senior, said she has seen a decline in attendance over the course of her time at UF. I think it has to do with expectations of students, Jenns said. When our expectations arent met, we dont show up as Princeton Review says Gators pack the stadium lessLOCAL HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgAs Summer B winds to an end, Gainesville's Regional Transit System announced bus schedule changes that will take effect Saturday.

BRIANNA WAGNERAlligator Contributing WriterThe newest step in UFs journey to top-10 status is launching an initiative to raise $800 million by June 2016. But its also about attracting educators to give UF students the best possible education, said Vice President of Development and Alumni Affairs Tom Mitchell. There will be no student fee implemented to raise the money. Most of the money is expected to come from alumni and supporters. We have about 375,000 alumni worldwide, Mitchell said. I am conwill respond to the call of further strengthening their university. Gov. Rick Scott named UF a pre-eminent university in April. The university will match the $15 million Scott plans to give annually through fundraising. If we can raise that much for football stadiums, we can do it for academics, said 23-year-old UF alumnus Fernando Carlo. The money will be distributed based on proposals from each college. They essentially have to compete to get the funds, Mitchell said. He said if UF can keep improving and gaining acknowledgment for being a top research facility, then it is more likely to receive grants in the future for more research opportunities. Mitchell said the research which will cover growth to economics residents because it will be applicable to their lives.UF plans to raise $800M to hire esteemed faculty

Speisman said planning ahead is usually cheaper, but sometimes waiting until the last when a client needed a carpet cleaned immediately. Speisman could charge less because the companys schedule had an opening. One way students can reduce moving costs, he said, is to pack most items themselves. Small boxes should be packed with heavier objects like books, and lighter boxes should tions. 2 College Brothers Inc. co-founder Bryan Weschler said his employees relate to clients because theyre students, too. His company is partnering with Student Maid to offer students two hours of moving and two hours of cleaning, which is normally worth about $400, for about $300. Corey Banta, a relocation specialist at Gator Moving & Storage, said all moving this time. Gator Moving & Storage charges about $180 for small student moves, which includes the hourly labor plus the fees for the van and fuel. The company offers 10 percent off labor for UF students and faculty year round. Bantas advice for them is to place alreadypacked boxes close to the door.

Soto said the question that determines this ranking is about the popularity of intercollegiate sports on campus. We base these on the college experts, and those are currently enrolled UF students, Soto said. Soto said the results are determined school-to-school comparisons. Still, the results disappoint some UF students. every weekend, students didnt think it was worth their time, and I think thats very poor sportsmanship, Petry said.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 2013 tThis column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I love my friends, but sometimes I feel like they dont care about the things I have to say. I feel that theyre judgmen tal of my actions. I dont like to hide things from them, but its hard to keep them in the loop if I feel like theyre not even listening. What should I do? Dear Friend, You dont have to tell your friends ev erything you do. If they do not approve of whatever aspect of your life that makes you happy, just dont tell them. Its okay to keep your personal business to yourself, especially if you think you may be judged. Whether youre sleeping with someone they may not approve of or youre friends with someone they dont like, sometimes its all right to keep secrets. This isnt Mean Girls. If they have a problem with how you want to live your life whatever it is that youre doing they dont have to know. Branch out and make new friends. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it true that if you dont use it ... you lose it? Dear Friend, This seemed like a vague ques tion. To avoid any confusion, I have made two separate lists. Here is a list of a few things you will lose if you do not use: 1. Coupons 2. Booty call opportunities 3. Food (it will expire) 4. Your job 5. Your body 6. Your boner Here is a list of things you will not lose if you do not use: 1. Your penis 2. Your vagina 3. Your butt 4. Parental advice 5. Magazine subscriptions Dear Mediocre Advice, How do you know when you cross the line be tween kinky and just plain weird in the bedroom? Dear Friend, To me, the realm of weird involves animal costumes and murder. What you may consider weird in the bed room is purely based off of what youre comfortable with or what you expect from someone. People have differ ent preferences. Some like ass-smacking, and some like whispering weird cannibalistic things in their part ners ear. This is why there is such a thing as a safe word. People are weird, and thats okay. Dear Mediocre Advice, What is the best patriotic accessory one can have? Dear Friend, I am the proud owner of several patriotic accessories down to underwear. My secret is I have no shame. My favorites are items that say Merica, such as a vest, headband or a muscle tee. If you want to yell MURICA like bloody murder, I suggest pants that look like the material was ripped off your local elemen not fear the faux pas that you cannot wear more than one Ameri

PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Since accepting the job as Floridas wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator on Dec. 3, Joker Phillips has garnered attention for utilizing Photoshop to reach out to high school prospects. Gators offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Phillips has also become an integral part in the muchneeded development of UFs passing attack. Hes challenged our kids at the wide receiver position, Pease said Wednesday. You bring a guy that has that much experience in, and you look at his reputation, and he knows whats going on. Floridas feeble passing game was a blemish in an otherwise strong season that saw the Gators go 11-2 and earn a berth in the Sugar Bowl against Louisville. Southeastern Conference in passing yardage, averaging 146.3 yards per game. Kentucky and Auburn two teams that combined to go 0-16 in the SEC last season each passed for more yards in 2012. Quinton Dunbar, who led the Gators with four receiving touchdowns last season and projects to be one of quarterback Jeff Driskels biggest targets in 2013, said a lack of continuity has been a major issue for Floridas offense. Since Ive been here, Ive done had three different [offensive] coordinators, so we never really got a grasp of the offense, Dunbar said at UF media day. Coming in their boatload at you, so you dont really get the whole playbook. Coming into the second year, I feel like were going to open it up. Phillips offers a level of experience that was missing at the receivers coach position last season, which should only make Peases job easier. Prior to serving as head coach of Kentucky from 2010 to 2012, Phillips spent time as wide receivers coach at Cincinnati (1997), Minnesota (1999-2000), Notre Dame (2001), South Carolina (2002) and Kentucky (2003-2009). Bush Hamdan, a former graduate assistant, was thrust into the open position on an interim basis when Aubrey Hill resigned last August. With Phillips on staff, Pease now time with other position groups. At times, hell take some things over, Pease said of Phillips duties in practice. Ill either stay with the quarterbacks or with the run game when theyre doing one-on-one because he knows how to manage the drills. The infusion of several talented freshman receivers could also provide an immediate boost to the offense. Demarcus Robinson, Ahmad Fulwood and Alvin Bailey each project to factor into the passing game. Latroy Pittman and Raphael Andrades, who had modest results as true freshmen last season, also return. As does Solomon Patton, who suffered a broken arm in Floridas 17-9 loss to Georgia on Oct. 29. While Pease noted, Our game is were going to wear them down up front, he admitted stretching must improve. As Florida prepares for its season opener against Toledo on Aug. 31, Pease believes he sees a difference in the teams group of receivers, a product of Phillips hard work. Hes done a good job of establishing his standards in the room, Pease said, and what he expects from them and how they approach practice each day.

PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer After failing to live up to his immense potential during his college career, Andre Debose entered the 2013 season hoptunity. ished. Debose suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Tuesdays practice and will require surgery, according to a UF press release. The redshirt senior expected to start at kick returner for the Gators and was in the mix for a starting job at receiver. I know that Andre is disappointed, coach Will Muschamp said. He had been doing very well in camp and we were more than pleased with his effort and attitude. Andre was hurt in a noncontact situation. He just planted his foot and there was a tear. Debose, who was once compared to Percy Harvin by former UF coach Urban Meyer, has only 29 receptions for 543 yards and four touchdowns in his career. His biggest contribution to the program has come as a kick returner. Debose holds the school record with four return touchdowns and is second in Southeastern Conference history with an average of 27.4 yards per kick return. It is unfortunate and you feel bad anytime that someone is injured, Muschamp said. The coaching staff and our team will be very supportive in assisting Andre during his recovery. Debose received a medical redshirt following the 2009 season. He can petition the NCAA for a sixth year of college eligibility. Contact Phil Heilman at pehilman@ alligator.org.Debose suffers ACL tearFOOTBALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff WriterWith probable starters Jon Halapio (partially torn pectoral muscle) and Max Garcia (back) out due to injury, Florida needs someone sive line. Fortunately for UF offensive coordinator Brent Pease, they dont come much bigger than Trenton Brown. The 6-foot-8, 363-pound junior college transfer is drawing Peases attention camp. Hes the biggest kid Ive ever seen out there, Pease said on Wednesday. Hes big, hes strong, and he can move, so hes going to be a real good football player. Brown played two years at Georgia Military College, where he was named a second-team NJCAA AllAmerican, before transferring to Florida. Rivals.com rated him as a three-star prospect. Pease said Brown is working on his conditioning to get in shape for the upcoming season. He hasnt been in that situation and been here long enough, he said. Hes getting there. Our guys are making him work. Defenders move to fullback: Two former defensive players, Gideon Ajagbe and Rhaheim Ledbetter, are getting reps at fullback in fall camp. Ledbetter, a safety, did not play last season and earned a redshirt. He came to Florida as a three-star recruit, according to Rivals. com. Ajagbe made four appearances at linebacker in 2011, but did not see any willing to say, Hey, Im going to make these tailbacks 1,000-yard rushers, Pease said. I think Gideon, in the long run, will become a guy that is very versatile for us because hes got that tight end-type body, and yet he can still be a fullback.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 2013 THE ALLIGATOR AWARDS Adam: The best thing about sports is that you can go to any random game and witness something youve never seen before. I went to a spring training game one year and saw a third-string catcher hit an inside-the-park home run (well, I should have seen it, but thats another story). Sometimes were lucky enough to see an extraordinary feat of athleticism, something that people will talk about for days or weeks or months. And for UF baseball, that performance was Zack Powers twogrand-slam game against Duke on Feb. 17. Think about it. Two swings of the bat. Eight runs. Its uncommon to see one grand slam, but two in one game is nuts. And he drove in Powers powered (pun intended) Florida to a 16-5 blowout, one of the best Gators performance in an otherwise mediocre season. Phil: two grand slams in one game and nobody is there to see it, did it really happen? Okay, that was a bit unfair. Floridas baseball team gets plenty of support, and deservedly so, the Gators have perennially been one of the nations best teams. However, the program was decimated by the MLB draft and never got things going last year. Powers performance was impressive, but it was quickly forgotten. Erik Murphys night against Wisconsin was the start of greatness. Murphy drained all 10 of his shots becoming just the 18th player in Southeastern Conference history to not miss a shot in a game while en route to scoring 24 points in the Gators 74-56 victory against the Badgers. After three seasons marred by an arrest and up-and-down performances on the court, Murphy announced his presence as one of the he did it all just days after suffering from massive migraines. Thats Jordan-esque. Adam: If it was Jordan-esque, it would have been in March, not November. It was a great game, but great games happen all the time. The last time a Florida player hit two grand slams in a game was when Preston Tucker launched two into the seats in 2009. Not exactly a common occurrence. Its not Powers fault the Gators struggled. And if you want to talk about overcoming adversity, then Powers is your guy. He missed the entire 2012 season due to shoulder surgery. And what does he do in his third game in nearly two years? Launch two grand slams in what was probably the best game of his career. When he came back like wasnt to play games with you, it was to aim for the fences. Phil: Powers wasnt aiming too hard for the fences considering he hit just one more home run the rest of the season. You know what that tells me? lier. Not to be repeated. And life doesnt reward onetime wonders, Lichtenstein. Just ask Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Never heard of them? Exactly. While Powers was busy hitting .268 on the season not exactly spectacular the season second on the team with 12.2 points per game. He also grabbed eight rebounds against Wisconsin and became a solid inside threat with an array of moves in his arsenal that kept defenders off-balance. And he did it all with the bright lights of ESPN illuminating the ODome. A performance that wont soon be forgotten. Adam: I actually have heard of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. They had the hit song Good Vibrations, and Powers was feeling the good vibrations back in February. Even if Powers didnt have a great season, he had one incredible game that isnt likely to be replicated any time soon. Face it, grand slams are awesome.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAVIE, Fla. For an owner who has endured four consecutive losing seasons, Miami Dolphins boss Stephen Ross sounded remarkably patient Wednesday. He resisted any temptation to say he expected a double-digit win total or playoff berth this year, even after committing about $150 million to free-agent acquisitions over the offseason. You want to bring back the winning tradition. You want to see progress, Ross said. I want to see growth in the team in building the foundation for this season and future seasons. I dont want to be a one-shot wonder. With the season opener a month away, Ross also spoke at a news conference to discuss the state of the franchise. Ross believes the Dolphins have found a long-term solution at quarterback in Ryan Tannehill, who led Miami to a 7-9 record while starting all 16 games as a rookie last season. In pro football you need to have a great quarterback, Ross said. We certainly believe and hope weve selected that quarterback. I love the guy. I think hes the right person to lead the way. Ross said the Dolphins are formulating a new proposal for upgrades, which the NFL has said are needed if the Super Bowl is to return to Miami. Ross declined to say whether he would target the 2014 Legislature with the new plan, or whether it would require approval in Tallahassee. Were exploring everything, he said. Have I given up? The answer is no. The importance of the team, the importance of bringing marquee events to Miami is paramount. Ross said the search for a new CEO will be narrowed to four candidates in the next week or so, with a hiring expected around Sept. 1. He said the person chosen would likely have a background in sports.
