Since the lunchtime favorite started allowing credit cards instead of cash, the number of credit card users has been increasing, said Caitanya Long, vice president at Krishna House. Because Krishna gets charged to use Square, the app they scan credit cards with, theyve decided to put the charge on students because its still more convenient than having to go to an ATM, she said.

Bridget Middleton, a Santa Fe College professor, was listed as No. 7. Most students go online to complain about their teachers, Middleton said. Im really honored that my students think this highly of me to go make positive comments. Middleton is an academic foundations professor teaching developmental mathematics at SFC. She has been a professor for 15 years and started teaching at SFC in 2001. Her students come into my ofher, said Kathleen Arnold, SFC mathematics department chair. Middleton said she loves teaching at SFC because it is a school that values its students. It makes sure said.

STEVEN KATONAAlligator Staff Writerskatona@alligator.orgThe Reitz Union Grand Ballroom today will thunder from creative minds brainstorming over the future of engineering and innovation. the UF Engineering Innovation Institutes biennial Engineering Innovation Summit. The summit is free and open to the public. It will span today from 1:15 to 4:30 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. It will feature a panel discussion with successful innovators from across the country. This years theme is Transforming Engineering Education & Research to Unleash the Creative Spirit. Part of what we are trying to do here is really bring thought leaders together to talk about that next generation of engineer, said Director of the Engineering Innovation Institute Erik Sander. When Sander was an engineering student at UF, the industry demanded technical depth and the ability to analyze problems. The requirements for the next generation of engineers is much different, he said. If you look at where innovation and entrepreneurship is going, its about teamwork, Sander said. That team of the future works interdisciplinary. So, we welcome students of all disciplines. Director of marketing and communications for the College of Engineering Helen Goh said this summit is a way to look at engineering education in a different light. We really want to make an impact in engineering education to the extent to where students are able to think out of the box and combine creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, she said. Jaclyn Fine, a 20-year-old UF mechanical and aerospace engineering junior, said the summit encourages creativity and innovation using creativity. Its good for freshmen and sophomores to go because it shows them what they can do when they get to industry, Fine said. Sander said he wished he had chances to learn about the big picture at events like this. This is an opportunity for students to hear from the best in the world, he said.Engineer summit to transform Reitz Speakers Today1:45 to 2:45 p.m. Jim Plummer keynote speaker: dean of engineering, Stanford University 3 to 3:45 p.m. Bob Klein: vice president of engineering and global product development, military aircraft systems, Northrop Grumman 3:45 to 4:30 p.m. Chris Malachowsky: cofounder of computer graphics company NVIDIAFriday9:15 to 10 a.m. Trey Lauderdale: founder and president of Voalte Panel: 10 to 10:45 a.m. Trevor Abbot: founder and CEO of SpinChill 10 to 10:45 a.m. David Flores: founder and CEO of Eatable 10 to 10:45 a.m. Augi Lye: founder and CEO of Trendy Entertainment 10 to 10:45 a.m. Amir Rubin: co-founder of Prioria 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. Randy Glein: managing Jurvetson

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 The survey drew no national conclusionslematic, but the on-campus location has always provided excellent service. The general customer service is lacking at Wells Fargo as a whole, but at least the on-campus branch really seems to care about the students, Taylor said. William Rossi, a Wells Fargo faculty fellow and senior lecturer at UF, said it is important to remember the report doesnt speculate on Wells Fargo nationally, and customer service in a particular region could be the issue the bank made the top of the list. I really think if you look at Wells Fargo nationally, they tend to have a pretty good reputation, he said. I think it has a lot to do with customer service, and thats than a national one. Additionally, acquiring regional banks in Florida could account for poor customer service, said Rossi. In reality, when it acquires an old bank, it can acquire its customer service trends, he said. Rachel Priester, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior, said perhaps the bank has the most complaints because it has the most customers. To me, that information is only valuable if you have a ratio of unhappy customers to total customers. BANK, from page 1 THE BAND WILL BE HERE OCT. 28.

REGINA SINAlligator Contributing WriterMembers of UF Golden Key can say all their hard work has paid off. The UF chapter was one of 28 recipients of the 2013 Key Chapter Award presented to Key chapters of college and universities internationally. As a high-functioning chapter, the recognition is very exciting since these are students who represent a great example of balancing academics and service to the community, said Chris Loschiavo, a UF Golden Key chapter adviser. The UF group had to achieve a gold service requirements such as volunteering at service events including March for Babies, Relay for Life, local street cleanups and the Olivia Glotfelty, a 20-year-old UF anthropology junior, said UFs chapter received the award because of the members participation and involvement in various service and social events throughout the year.

The Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies in UFs Warrington College of Business Administration conducted a survey that showed investment outlook in time in two years. Interest rates went up 0.66 percent between the beginning and end of this years second quarter. The results apply to apartments, commercial rental property, single-family houses, condominium development and developable land. Timothy Becker, the centers director, said interest rates went up another 64 basis points within the past 30 days, which translates into about a 1.3 percent increase in interest rates. If that trend continues, Becker said, people will start worrying about investing in the real estate market. He said rising interest rates could lead to higher rent prices, which could narrow down the places students can afford. If I were wanting to invest in student apartments right now, and I was coming to Gainesville and looking at buildings, interest rates are 1.3 percent higher than they were three months ago, and so that has an impact on how much I can afford to pay, he said. Cheryl Hartley, a Realtor with Prudential Trend Realty, said UF undergraduates tend to lean toward apartments and condos, while the graduate students seek houses in residential areas. She noted she has already seen reactions among her clients to the rise in interest rates. What they felt they could afford six months ago, they may not be able to (now), she said. Fortunately, according to a section in the survey that references information from Visit Florida, state tourism increased by 2.6 percent in the second quarter. This rise in tourism could have a positive effect in investment in the land development sector of the real estate market. Becker said it is unknown when the rise in interest rates will end, but, as a whole, the real estate market is improving despite the rise in interest rates.Increasing interest rates could raise rentSTATE

An economic crisis still looms in this country the same one we were supposed to be out of years ago. The richest 10 percent of Americans took more than half of the countrys income in 2012, according to a New York Times study. Thats the largest share since the government began keeping records. In fact, about 20 percent of the nations income was concentrated in the top 1 percent of earners. As long as this continues, unemployment will remain rampant and wages stagnant. Because high levels of unemployment have lasted so long, businesses have no incentives to improve workers salaries, and companies know workers will take what they can get in this kind of environment. According to the same study, income for the lower 99 percent of workers has risen only 1 percent in 2012, while the richest 0.01 percent yes, one-hundredth of one percent enjoyed more than a 32 percent raise. In fact, the richest 400 Americans are worth more than $2 trillion, which is about the same as Russias gross domestic product. While wages have stagnated for an overwhelming majority of Americans, so have employment opportunities. The unemployment rate for the poorest families earning less than $20,000 a year is as high as it was during the Great Depression at 21 percent, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, households earning $150,000 or more are enjoying an extremely low unemployment rate of 3.2 percent. This was no equal opportunity recession or an equal opportunity recovery, Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University, told the Associated Press. One part of America is in depression, while another part is in full employment. This news comes on the heels of strikes from Walmart and fast-food workers, demanding a living wage. Think about it: If we just raise the wages of low-paid workers, then theres more money injected into the economy through their spending. Less people would have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet, thus opening more positions for those most affected by unemployment. But raising the minimum wage hurts business and causes prices to skyrocket, right? Not exactly. A study from April 2011 by the University of California, Berkeley found that if Walmart paid its workers $12 an hour, the average shopper would only spend an extra 46 cents per trip. Thats nearly double the federal minimum wage and would only cost the consumer an extra $12.49 per year. And again, thats only if the new costs were completely absorbed by consumers. Other companies manage to pay better than minimum wage, like Walmart competitor Costco, which pays its workers $17 an hour on average. Not to mention that many of these companies claiming a higher minimum wage would break them are also present in countries with higher minimum wages than the U.S. countries such as Australia, the U.K. and France. The only people corporations care about are shareholders, not workers. The only way the economic situation will get better in this country is if policies like this start to change. We must quit prioritizing the rich over the poor and stereotyping low-income individuals and communities and give them what they deserve fair wages and equal opportunities.

Faust, commonly known as Dr. Faustus, was a scholar who famously made a pact with the devil. In exchange for the doctors soul, the devil would provide Faustus with whatever information he might request. However, the fun didnt last long: The devil eventually returned to collect Faustus soul, and Faust met a gruesome death. These days, we dont necessarily need to exchange our souls for endless information. Rather than signing a contract in blood, as Faustus did, we simply click I Agree to Facebooks terms and conditions. And in this situation, Mark Zuckerberg is the devil. In a review of the 2013 documentary Terms and Conditions wrote, By clicking the I Agree button, you blindly assent to hand over your life and interests to billion-dollar corporations to do with it what they may. The problem with free Internet services like Facebook and Google is that they arent exactly free. For users, the currency of free Internet services isnt money its your personal data. The FTC has already taken action against Facebook, a notorious distributor of personal data both to private corporations and the government. In 2011, Facebook had to settle with the FTC after it changed users default settings to make their information public, thus violating their privacy. company is currently attempting to change the language in its privacy policy to accommodate advertisers at the expense of its users. A Los Angeles Times article printed last week stated, Facebook wants to put in place new language that requires users to give the company permission to use their name, image and personal information in advertising. Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg told attendees at a tech conference last week that his No. 1 job was to protect user data, according to the L.A. Times. He also blamed the government for failing to strike the right balance between protecting citizens from terrorist attacks and violating their civil liberties. This is, of course, ludicrous Zuckerberg knowingly supplies the government and private corporations with private taking accountability is a cowardly move. Simply boycotting Facebook, unfortunately, is out of the question. The bottomless source of information about our friends and family, our schools and places of employment, the products and services we buy is, admittedly, a nice convenience. Although our Faustian deal with Facebook wont end with eternal damnation, it has already cost us our right to privacy.

JENNIFER HERNANDEZAvenue WriterTilman Monsanto thinks shopping for mens clothing in Gainesville is horrible. The UF sociology and Spanish junior said he puts more thought into getting dressed than the average 20-year-old guy. The lack of local boutiques for men puts a damper on his slim European style. I keep my eye out for things in the one or two shops around here, he said. I have to plan to make a trip to Orlando when I want something new. But urbanite UF students like Monsanto who dont have access to designer stores can opt for a new wardrobe this fall with the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection, which just hit stores Sunday. More than one hundred fall essentials, including leather jackets, button-down shirts and tailored pants are available for women and, on this rare occasion, men. Items in the collection range from $19.99 to $299.99. Brian Jablonski, store team leader for the Target on Archer Road, said the company is always working on national designers. In an interview with Target, designer Phillip Lim said he was interested in making a wardrobe for the stylish person on the go. Its a little on the pricey edge, 22-year-old Solomiya Virstyuk said, but she added the price accounts for the fact that Lim is expressing his artistic ability. Virstyuk said she has to dress professionally now that shes in pharmacy school. She said even though she has a full schedule, she collection incorporates mens style in womens clothing with that elegance. Its sharp, and the details are simple but interesting. The actual styles are not overdone, she said. Theyre clean-cut and have color patterns that mix well together but wont look tacky. Molly Muth, 22, an elementary education graduate student, said she was looking forward to buying Lims signature bag. Theyre so cheap here, but theyre actually $100 bags, Muth said. Lim designed versatile pieces that suit different moods something for every day of the week, he said in the interview with Target. Monsanto said his style depends on whom he is going to see and whether its a fancy dinner, going to Midtown or meeting with a professor. He said the Lim pieces can be worn on different occasions, and Target is making high-end fashion accessible and giving people more options.

Its time to hit the kitchen 2 Chainzstyle. Hip-hop and rap artist 2 Chainz took his lyrics straight to the kitchen with a cookbook titled #MEALTIME. It comes as a bonus digital booklet to his album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time on iTunes. The album was released Sept. 10. Nicolas Swain, a 21-year-old UF communications senior, said its in 2 Chainzs nature to do something outside the box, like publish a cookbook. Thats 2 Chainz for you, he said. Hes just a funny dude. 2 Chainz and Atlanta-based chef Aleem collaborated on the recipes, which include shrimp and grits, fried chicken and garlic mashed potatoes. seafood, he said in an interview with MSNBC. Lauren Jadotte, a 21-year-old UF advertising junior, said 2 Chainz published the book simply to make money. Hes giving society what they want, she said. Foolishness. The recipes correlate with the tracks on the record. The chicken marsala calls for two pounds of chicken and to listen to U Da Realest, while the last step of making fried chicken is to sit at the head of the table and sing along to Beautiful Pain, according to the book. Atlanta native 2 Chainz, born Tauheed Epps, was nominated for three Grammy Awards, according to the Grammy Award website. He is signed with Def Jam Recordings label, which also represents Kanye West, Rick Ross and Fabolous. 2 Chainz may not be a stranger to the music business, but Jadotte said she doesnt consider him to be a true hip-hop artist. Its an art form, she said. 2 Chainz is spitting on it. However, she also said that its a smart business move, and that hell make money from it. Bruce Floyd, UF social media specialist, also said he thinks its a smart publicity move, especially considering the hashtags 2 Chainz used in the titles of the album and cookbook. Hashtags create a common point for people to connect and to create a conversation. There isnt going to be any confusion as to how to talk about the album on social media, he said. Its pretty brilliant. On the cookbook publication, however, Floyd was not surprised. It seems like every celebrity has a cookbook these days, he said. Kiana Robello, a 19-year-old UF psychology junior, said she is not impressed with the cookbook. Hes trying to be different, she said, but the hype surrounding the cookbook will blow over.

8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 Ryan D. Jones / Alligator Purple HazeAtlanta-based indie rock band Stokeswood performs at The JAM on Sept. 12. LAUREN ADAMSONAvenue Writer Taylor Swift has a Pinterest problem This 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 Friend, The next fart you walk into may end your existence. Im not certain, but look at the signs. A mere mortal cannot inhale and absorb that many poots in one lifetime its simply not humanly possible! The Grim Reaper is probably around the corner f---king with you before you head to heaven, hell, outer space, an *NSYNC concert from the 90s whatever your afterlife may be. Enjoy your family, friends and food while you can. Make peace with your loud neighbors and the dog whose poop you always step in. I Dear Mediocre Advice, In the past two months Ive had the misfortune of unknowingly walking into a fart not once, not twice, but THREE times and counting! At this rate Ill have wandered into a bakers dozen of feral farts by Christmas! The jingle of a poot might make me laugh now, but Im three crop dustings away from my limit. Am I experiencing some twisted form of karma? I honestly cant think of one single thing that Ive done to anybody to deserve this. Dear Mediocre Advice, I met a guy last week and we hit it off. He asked me out for drinks later in the week and everything went swimmingly. We were both boozed up and he was being very touchy, holding my hand and kissing me at the bar. When he dropped me back home, he kissed me goodnight and planned our next date. We went out on a day date today, no booze involved, and he didnt touch me at all, didnt kiss me goodbye, and didnt plan to meet up again. Whats the deal?! Dear Friend, He did not go through a dramatic metamorphosis like something out of Animorphs he just changed his mind. Its like being really hungry and then satisfying yourself with a whole pizza. You swear you are about to die from starvation and you end up eating until you Thankfully, you two werent very involved so itll be easy to just call him a dildo and get over it.

Alligator File PhotoJon Halapio runs during Floridas 37-26 win against Florida State on Nov. 24 in Doak Campbell Stadium. Halapio is expected to make his season debut on Saturday. PHIL HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanHaving to watch Floridas season opener against Toledo on Aug. 31 from the sidelines was painful for Jon Halapio. Being forced to sit through a loss against Miami a week later was torture. of the season, the senior right guard will return for No. 19 Florida (1-1) to face Tennessee (2-1) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Sitting out the last two games was really long, Halapio said. It was the longest two weeks of my life. Prior to this season, Halapio was the epitome of consistency for the Gators. The 6-foot-3, 320-pound St. Petersburg native played in 41 games (33 starts) during his career at Florida. His 27 consecutive starts were the most on the team. Halapio, a second-team All-Southeastern Conference pick, expected to be the anchor of Floridas offensive line before an offseason injury clouded his plans. He suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle while lifting weights in July. We were doing max-out benching one day, he said. I came down and basically ripped my [pectoral muscle]. The injury cost him all of fall camp and To quicken his recovery, Halapio received a platelet-rich plasma injection and hours of medical treatment from Floridas athletic training staff. Because the tear has not fully healed, Halapio will wear a brace consisting of a sleeve and multiple straps that combine to stabilize his shoulder and prevent it from rotating too far backward while he plays against the Volunteers. Its still going to be weak, so it could still tear at any time, said Halapio, who also admitted endurance could be an issue early in his return. Theyre telling me thats the down side of it. But the brace helps really well. Practicing last week and this week was a no concern. Halapios return should help bolster UFs rushing attack. Through two games, the Gators have averaged the third-fewest yards on the ground in the SEC. During Floridas 21-16 loss to Miami on Sept. 7, the Gators were bottled up for 122 rushing yards on 44 carries an average of just 2.8 yards per attempt. Having Halapio back is a big thing, running back Mack Brown said. We Hes a beast, man. Added fullback Hunter Joyer: [Halapio] is one of the guys we look to on the offense. Hes a leader on the line. The other guys on the line look up to him. It will be nice to have him back. Florida also received good news pertaining to the rest of the offensive line. Left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) is expected to return for Tennessee after missing the second half against Miami. Right tackle Tyler Moore (ankle) is probable to play against the Volunteers. Center Jon Harrison and left guard Max Garcia, who were each banged up against the Hurricanes, were not mentioned by coach Will Muschamp on Wednesday and should be fully healthy. Florida expects to have its entire starting offensive line It feels good to be out there with everybody else, Halapio said. Ive got to knock the rust off and get back in the swing of things real fast.Offensive lineman returning after missing first two gamesFOOTBALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickFlorida defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin remembers how stout Tennessees offensive line was last year. During the Gators 37-20 win against the Volunteers on Sept. 15, 2012, UT running back Raijon Neal rushed for 87 yards on 23 carries thanks largely to the offensive lines success. The top-10 Florida defense managed to sack Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray only once. The Volunteers return four of Stone, right guard Zach Fulton and tackles Antonio Richardson and JaWuan James from last years unit. The only starter removed from last seasons line is left guard Dallas Thomas, who the Miami Dolphins selected with the 77th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Theyre big, Durkin said. Theyre physical. They move well. Theyre athletic. ... So, not only off tape do we feel that way, but after playing them we feel that way. And our guys know that and understand. Its a big challenge for them, and I think theyre excited for it. Southeastern Conference coaches named Richardson to the preearned All-SEC second-team offense honors, while Stone is on the third team. This will be the best offensive line we will face this year, coach Will Muschamp said Monday. In three games this season, the Volunteers offensive line has allowed only two sacks. The unit has excelled at run blocking; UT ranks fourth in the conference with 244.3 rushing yards per game. Floridas defense is up for the challenge Saturday against Tennessees physical front. Itll be a good test, linebacker Michael Taylor said. Its another SEC line. The SEC is supposed to have the best players in the country. Its the same line that has been there for a while now. Theyve got camaraderie. Theyve been playing Florida preparing to face strong Tennessee offensive line Sitting out the last two games was really long.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 THE RALLYEach week, two alligatorSports columnists will debate the biggest looming matchup in college football. Today, Adam Lichtenstein and Adam Pincus preview No. 5 Stanfords showdown against No. 23 Arizona State in Stanford, Calif., on Saturday at 7 p.m. on FOX. Adam: As you may have noticed, both columnists this week name. For simplicity and longevitys sake, I, Adam Lichtenstein, will go by Adam, and Adam Pincus will go by Pincus. Were you expecting a game with more orange? Although Tennessee-Florida may be a closer rivalry game, the fact of the matter is that it simply wont be a very good game. Tennessee was absolutely thrashed by Oregon last weekend, and although the Gators dont have nearly as good of an offense as the Ducks, they will handle the Volunteers without much trouble. Meanwhile, as triumphant Florida fans make their way out of the gates of Ben Hill matchup of the week will be brewing on the West Coast. Arizona State comes into this week after one of the most bizarre endings to a game that I have ever seen. Up against then-No. 20 Wisconsin, ASU took a lead but allowed end of the fourth quarter. With seconds to spare, Badgers quarterback Joel Stave tried to set up his kicker with the ball down while failing to actually make contact with the ground. The Sun Devils piled on top of the fumble, ending the game. Arizona State got the break of a lifetime and scratched out a win last week, but it wont be so lucky when it travels to Stanford this week. The Cardinal will win this game easily. Pincus: Not so fast my wag). How can you go against a school that leads the nation in blackouts on and off the nial party-school-list powerhouse. This is a huge game for both schools. For Stanford, its a chance to recover from a less-than-impressive 34-20 win against Army and an opportunity to solidify its No. 5 ranking. For Arizona State, its a chance to prove that last week was more than luck. The Sun Devils need this football game. A win would pracSouth Division title, considering UCLAs tougher schedule going forward. If you want to get geeky, Arizona State tops Stanford in total offense and has a nearly identical mark in total defense with 304 yards per game compared to the Cardinals 292. After two-and-ahalf seasons of watching Florida football, Im all for a passing offense that throws for 358.5 yards per game. Yet, Stanford allows less than half of that per contest. Something has got to give, and judging against the Badgers, who can go against the Sun Devils with the football gods on their sides? Adam: It must be nice out in Phoenix now that ASU is getting Tidwell told Jerry Maguire to show him the money. Unfortunately for all those Sun Devils out there, its not going to last. Yeah, Stanford did not look like off its preseason sleepiness when it enters Stanford Stadium against a worthy opponent. Senior running back Tyler Gaffney is back in football form after sitting out the 2012 season to play minor league baseball. Gaffney averaged more than six yards per carry as Stepfan Taylors backup in 2011, and Gaffney is right back at it after hitting .297 and stealing 11 bases in the New York-Penn League. the season, Gaffney is notching 5.9 yards per touch and is 19th in the nation with 118 yards per game. Arizona State may have held punchless Sacramento State to 51 yards on the ground, but when the Sun Devils took on the Badgers you know, a team with an actual rushing attack they let Melvin Gordon beat them to the tune of 193 yards and a pair of scores. When Gaffney lines up in the Devils at hello. Pincus: As an aside, Im watching this game because Gus Johnson will be in the booth. He could make even a conversation with you sound exciting! What a legend. Granted, it doesnt look good for the Sun Devils, but picking them isnt as stupid as quoting the cheesiest part of a great football movie. Your sensitivity is quite cute. Im going all in on Todd Grahams squad from the desert. Name to watch out for: wide receiver Jaelen Strong. The sophomore has 12 receptions for 162 yards and a touchdown. Hes been quarterback Taylor Kellys goweeks. There isnt much else to talk about for a Pac-12 game that few in Gainesville will watch. Gators fans will be recovering from tailgating hangovers, runheavy offenses and a Florida win against the boys from Rocky Top.Which team will win the Arizona State-Stanford matchup?

RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer @rjschafferNo. 4 Florida (9-1) trailed 9-8 in the second set against No. 17 Florida State (6-4) on Tuesday, and it appeared another long point might not fall in the Gators favor. Florida missed chances to close out points against Western Michigan in its previous match, allowing the Broncos to come back and win the third set in UFs four-set victory on Friday. But Tuesday was a different story. The point went back and forth multiple times before outside hitter Ziva Recek notched a kill to tie the score at nine. From there, the Gators were on track for a three-set sweep of the Seminoles in the OConnell Center. The players were very focused, coach Mary Wise said. There was some great volleyball there. forth with no separation. I think what you saw were two teams playing their hearts out early in the season. Although Florida won in a sweep, each set could have gone to either team. In the second set, FSU led UF 2423, needing only one more point for the Seminoles to grab momentum and enter the break tied. Instead, the Gators kept the point going long enough to force the Seminoles into a ball-handling error. Florida proceeded to win the next two points to take the set and put the Seminoles in a 2-0 hole. The most instrumental player in keeping those plays alive for UF was libero Taylor Unroe, who led the team with 10 digs. Taylor Unroe really played well for us, especially in the serving-passing area, Wise said. Florida State never made long service runs. Were at our best when were using all of our hitters. Having Unroe make key digs allowed setter Taylor Brauneis to get better options for quick kills with middle blocker Chloe Mann and rightside hitter Alex Holston. We knew that they had some big bangers, Unroe said. So we knew we had to block well. We made enough of those plays to win the game, and thats what really helped us win. With the Gators up 127 in the third set, trying to close out their rivals, the ball ricocheted high off of a Florida player. It looked like the point was over. Unroe then proceeded to spring toward the bench and make a lunging dig, hitting the ball right before it was untouchable and keeping it alive. Florida got the ball back over the net and got the point a few moments later on an attack error by Florida States Ashley Neff. Another challenge facing Florida entering Tuesday was Florida States height advantage. But not only did UF have nine blocks in the match, it shut down the Walch sisters two of FSUs top offensive threats. Nicole Walch had 14 kills but a hitting percentage of .276. Elise Walch had only seven kills on a hitting percentage of .158. good, Unroe said. You know, last year we didnt play well, and they played awesome. This year, we battled it out, and we were able to come out with a win. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffTaylor Unroe reaches for the ball during Floridas three-set victory against FSU on Tuesday in the OConnell Center. VOLLEYBALLLibero spurs comeback against Seminoles it will be a good test for us. Injury update: Wednesday during the SECs weekly media teleconference that quarterback Jeff Driskel (sprained knee) and right guard Jon Halapio (partially torn pectoral muscle) will play Saturday against the Volunteers. Cornerback Marcus Roberson (sprained knee) and right tackle Tyler Moore (sprained ankle) are probable. Driskel, Roberson and Moore suffered their injuries against the Hurricanes. Right now, Marcus Roberson, I think still will be able to play this weekend, Muschamp said. He was a little gimpy yesterday, but he should be OK, and Tyler Moore, the same. On UFs most recent depth chart, D.J. Humphries, who suffered a sprained MCL against Toledo but played in the starter at left tackle. I think the week off helped him, Muschamp said Monday. He had some soreness and some tightness in the knee, and it certainly is a long season. I felt like we wanted to pull him at the time. It is what it is. If that situation occurs, Max Garcia moves to left tackle and Ian (Silberman) goes to left guard and we move forward. Were prepared for that to happen. But I dont think thats going to be an issue moving forward.Cornerback, quarterback expect to play NOTES, from page 14
