4, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013LOCAL ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgAfter a summer of construction, Tutoring Zone has unveiled a new website and a new location. The local tutoring company has moved to 1117 W. University Ave., about a six-minute walk from campus. The new location is much smaller than the original, said Matthew Hintze, Tutoring Zone founder. Back in the days when all of our reviews were live we needed a big, big place with lots of parking, he said, Because everybody had to actually physically attend the review. But now, with about 90 percent of students choosing to view the reviews online, Hintze said the huge building isnt necessary. The new location allowed the tutoring company to rethink how it does business. Hintze said the new location has led to higher attendance for live lectures, namely among the classes most frequently taken by younger students. He said older students mostly tend to watch the lectures online. Dylan Attal, a 21-year-old Spanish and linguistics junior, said the new location and website makes studying easier. That sounds like a good plan, he said. If they make it more convenient for students, its more likely that students will use their service.Tutoring Zone moves closer to campus in a smaller space The renovated, expanded Reitz Union should debut in Fall 2015that will provide space for student services and organizations. It is truly the students who spearheaded this renewal and recreation, Machen said. The renovation will involve beautifying the union, adding new windows and increasing The renovated union will also have new ofzations and clubs. Student Body President Bonarrigo spoke about the need for an expanded union to keep pace with student population growth. UF had about 19,000 students when the Reitz Union opened in 1967. It currently has about 50,000, she said. Todays groundbreaking ceremony is the culmination of nearly a decade of work and effort, she said. The renovated union will become a central hub for students, Bonarrigo said. It will include several student services, including the Center for Leadership and Service, Rep. McKeel also spoke at the groundbreaking about his work with UF to make it a top university in the nation. I couldnt be more excited, if you cant tell, couldnt be more excited to be a member of a legislature who understands the importance of higher education. Machen awarded McKeel with the Presidents Medallion for his service to the university. About 200 people attended the event. former student body presidents and members from the UF Board of Trustees. Machen said expanding the Reitz Union is essential for UF to continue to provide a unique educational experience to students. We may only have some shovels and some sand here today to work with, he said, but today were going to begin again a renewal and a recreation of the University of Floridas cathedral for our students.Kan Li / Alligator StaffStudent Body President Christina Bonarrigo, state Rep.

The grants are intended to fund upgrades to the airport taxiway and a new connector lane for planes. Once completed, the additions will contribute to the overall security of the airport while also enhancing the airports aesthetics, said Laura Aguiar, an airport spokeswoman. The proposed connector lane will eliminate the possibility of a plane accidentally entering a runway in use, Aguiar said. The duration of the project has not yet been determined, but construction could begin as early as November. Administration will ensure all heavy construction is comnot be interrupted during the process, Aguiar said.

The step-down came when President Bernie Machen announced Win Phillips, UFs vice president of will leave his position in December. Phillips has spent more than 20 years at UF, serving in roles like College of Engineering dean and vice president for research. His wife, Betty, is due to start work as the executive director of UF Online (formerly known as eCampus) on Jan. 1. Phillips said a university is made up of its students, and it is the facultys job to enrich their education. He will stay at UF as a professor of mechanical and biomedical engineering. I started out of as a professor, Im going to end as a professor, Phillips said. Trustees also saw a numerical breakdown of the expected results from UF Online. UF Provost Joe Glover said in 10 years, the program hopes to have about 24,100 students. By Fall 2018, UF Online wants to offer 30 fully online degree programs. Five new degrees will be added each year, Glover said. This is aspirational, but its goalsetting, also, said Associate Provost for Teaching and Technology Andy McCollough. UF Online will start with business administration, sports management, criminology and law, health education and environmental management. The next year, it will add biology, mechanical engineering, psychology, telecommunications and nursing, according to a draft of the comprehensive business plan presented to the legislative task force Aug. 30. Other degrees to be added include chemistry, economics and political science. UF Online applicants, Glover reminded the board, will be subjected to the same admissions standards as regular students. Still, Glover made it clear the purpose of the program is not for UF Online students to transition to campus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 159 cases have been recorded across the country so far. Alachua County has a lower rate of vaccinations for the virus compared to the rest of the state, said Vini Vijayan, assistant professor at UF in the division of pediatric infectious diseases. The rates of vaccination are declining, and more and more people are traveling abroad, Vijayan said. Theyre bringing the disease back to the U.S. and are infecting people that arent vaccinated. An average of 60 measles cases were reported in the U.S. annually since 2000. An estimated 20 million cases of measles appear worldwide each year. Of all the infectious diseases, measles is most easily spread, Vijayan said. It spreads through the air by breathing, coughing, sneezing and direct contact with the infectious particles. Even in children that are healthy, you can get sick enough to require hospitalization, Vijayan said. It can lead to ear infections, seizures, pneumonia and death. To combat the infection, she said, college students need an MMR vaccine, which vaccinates against measles, mumps and rubella. If students were already vaccinated with MMR as children, they can choose to get a titer shot, which boosts the immune system fection. Meriam Holder, an Alachua County resident who works as a nurse in Williston public schools, said this season may have seen an increase in measles because more parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children. Cecily Sandlin, a 21-year-old Santa Fe College nursing freshman, said she thinks the reason parents still choose not to vaccinate their children is due to fear of exposing them to other disorders.Measles nears record high for 2013, vaccine rates are downBrooks In the virus form of measles, symptoms include: The virus can turn into the disease form of measles, which can include: I started out of as a professor, Im going to end as a professor.Win Phillipsvice president of research and

Todays question: Were you sad to see the Reitz Union Colonnade demolished? Photojournalists preserve dignity of death A journalists job is to seek truth. Sometimes, that truth can be uncomfortable or shocking. In tragic events like Saturdays shooting in Nairobi, Kenya, reality is simply horrifying. Somali terrorist group al Shabaab stormed an upscale shopping mall and shot at civilians ranging from ages 2 to 78. The New York Times staff photographer Tyler Hicks was nearby when the terrorists attacked. He was able to enter the mall with police forces and photograph the chaos. Kenyan security forces evacuated more than a thousand people, but on Sunday, the gunmen held dozens hostage. The death toll by Sunday night after a military siege was 68, though many more were injured in the attack. Hicks photographs were published Saturday on the New York Times website and printed in Sundays paper. The Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer has captured moments of violence around the world from the war in Afghanistan to volatile areas of Pakistan. On Saturday, he and his wife were off duty. But when hell broke loose, he was right in the middle, because thats the way of the trade. The pictures he shot are a testament to his talent and sensitivity as a photojournalist. Documenting poignant moments in the worst scenarios is what he does best, and he shouldnt be criticized for it he should be lauded. However, the images that were published by The New York Times have spurred outrage among readers, fellow journalists and academics. Some say Hicks excelled as a journalist when he embedded himself with police and exposed himself to danger on Saturday. However, they frown at the decisions made back at the desk. Should the editors of The New York Times, a beacon of American journalism, have picked out these photos more carefully? On Saturday, the families and friends of people who died at Westgate Mall would have been able to see their loved ones, fully recognizable, on the homepage of the Times. Michael Deibert, a journalist Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti and Mexico, is no stranger to death or violence. He was disturbed by the Times editorial decision and hinted that American journalism has adopted a double standard for when we do or dont show graphic images. An excerpt from his letter to the public editor of the New York Times, published on his blog: Quite honestly, as a journalist who has reported on mayed by this. Would The New York Times run photos of blood-soaked dead white Americans after one of the many mass shootings that occur in the United States? I doubt it. American media publishes and circulates graphic images, but does our sensitivity change according to the proximity of horror? Journalists learn that respect for the deceased and their families is paramount when telling a story. But in light of the editorial decisions of The New York Times, I cant help but feel that dignity has been overlooked. I cant say that The New York Times was wrong to publish the pictures, but as a reader, I struggle to come to terms with the emotional factor of this choice. Bad things shouldnt be sanitized, but there is a line that when crossed is simply bad taste. As an aspiring journalist, I see this decision as a portrait of the industry today and whats to come in the future. Daniela Guzman is a UF journalism senior.

LOCAL RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Contributing WriterAlthough the price of attending college may be rising nationally, it will now be about $4,000 cheaper to get a bachelors degree in Gainesville. Santa Fe College announced that starting in the Fall 2014 semester, students will be able to obtain a bachelors degree for $10,000 or less. The change is part of a challenge from Gov. Rick Scott, who announced the plan in November 2012. The cost of a bachelors degree from Santa Fe is currently $14,455 for in-state students, according to sfcollege.edu. We think (the challenge is) the right thing to do, said David Houder, director of communications at Santa Fe College. Were all about making education affordable and were trying to address this and help people advance in their careers. Santa Fe is one of 23 colleges in the Florida College System that have all accepted the challenge. The Florida College System includes all state and community colleges in Florida. a degree in organizational management with other degrees expected to be added in the future, Houder said. Not only will the program allow for more Santa Fe students to be able to afford degrees, it may help to increase the number of students who attend Santa Fe. My original plan was to transfer to UF after two years, said 19-year-old Santa Fe health science second-year Brian Sheehan. Now that Santa Fe is a lot cheaper, it makes more sense for me to just stay here. Students wont be able to simply just sign up for the program, though. A student must have a grade point average of 2.5, be in-state and have a good academic standing, according to Houder. The challenge will only reduce the cost of tuition. The plan will not lower the costs of textbooks, living and other expenses. Any amount of money that I can save will help, said fany Pagliazzo. Knowing that I can invest that money in other areas will allow me to focus more on school and less on the expenses. Although the plan wont go into effect for another year, Houder said Santa Fe feels that the program is something that is necessary for education to move forward. Everyone has an eye on making education affordable and getting an affordable degree and advancing, Houder said. Santa Fe to meet Gov. Scotts $10,000 bachelor degree challenge EMILY BEHRENSAlligator Contributing WriterUF was recently ranked the No. 1 national university with the Best Bang for the Buck, according to the Washington Monthly. The University of Georgia and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill followed in second and third place, according to a press release from The Washington Monthly. UFs tuition is $6,270 a year for instate students compared to the national average of $8,655, said UF spokesman Steve Orlando. Were really proud of being recognized for the great value that we give our students, Orlando said. When we rank so highly in some of these publications, I think its nice for our students to know that theyre getting a great return on their investment. To receive a Washington Monthly ranking, a college needs at least 20 percent of students who receive Pell Grants, a graduation rate of 50 percent and a graduation rate that exceeds the predicted rate based on the number of lowincome students, according to a news release. Colleges must also have a student loan default rate of 10 percent or less. Im paying for because Im in-state and I have Bright Futures, said Carrie Noland, a 19-year-old UF advertising sophomore.UF rated best bang for buck ASHLEY CRANEAlligator Contributing WriterPeople gathered outside the worn brick building at 429 NW 4th St. on Sunday to celebrate the recognition of a historical landmark. There were raised umbrellas, puddle-soaked dress pants and open doors but no unveiling. I put it up already, said Gerard Duncan, who decided to display the Florida Heritage Site plaque on Friday. I didnt want this ceremony to be something that we were looking forward to as much as something that we were already doing. Duncan, the pastor of Prayers by Faith Ministries, which now occupies the building, said he fought to have the building recognized as a historical landmark for its role in the civil rights movement. The Rev. Thomas A. Wright, who pastored the congregation from 1962 to 2006 when it was called Mount Carmel Baptist Church, collected an offering to pay for the plaque, which cost $2,000. Duncan said Wright helped him with research during the state application process for historical recognition. He was the forerunner for equality for African Americans in Gainesville, he said. Duncan said he applied for the historical recognition out of nothing but a need to better the community. History is everything, he said We need some history. The building, constructed in 1946, was previously the local meeting place for the NAACP when organizers lobbied to desegregate Gainesville schools and implement a biracial city commission, Duncan said. Bessie Collins, 22, sat with her 2-year-old daughter Dayla Jones at the dedication service. I was surprised to see that the plaque was already up, Collins said. I had no idea that this building was a part of history until Pastor Duncan told us.Church building recognized as Florida historical landmark DOLLAR GENERAL WILL GO IN, TOO. HANNA MARCUSStaff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgResidents can expect to see a shopping center take shape on the former site of the 13th Street Brasington Cadillac-Oldsmobile dealership, now demolished. The sale of the property, which is located at Beau Beery of Coldwell Banker Commercial M.M. Parrish Realtors. Beery, who represented the seller, Bluestone Lands of Houston, said the land was divided into three parcels north, middle and south sections and each was sold to a separate buyer. The three separate buyers each have different plans for their portion of the land, Beery said. A Dollar General is going into the middle parcel, while the northern part has been bought by Nathan Collier to create a better entrance to his apartment complex in back, he said. The southern piece was sold to a woman developing a retail center theres been talks of it having salons and maybe a grocery store. Located across the street from Gainesville High School, the property was used as a temporary car sales lot after the dealership closed. Its a pretty iconic place, Beery said. Its changing hands as it should and everyone seems to be pretty excited about it. Realtor Dan Drotos said plans for the shopping strip on the southern parcel of the lot are Nothings for sure for that corner of land, he said. But theres been talks of a multitenant retail building. be built in the middle parcel, arriving as the third Dollar General in a 2-mile radius of the property. Concept Development of Gainesville, the company developing the Dollar General, could not be reached for a comment.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionIs No. 20 Florida better off without Jeff Driskel as its starting quarterback? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Liz Slattery is the newest freshman to make an impact for the Florida soccer team. Read the story on page 13.Gators in AP PollFlorida fell one spot to No. 20 in the Associated Press Poll released Sunday. It is the third consecutive week the Gators have dropped in the AP Poll.FIRE JOE MORGANEveryone is making a big deal about Floridas quarterback situation and deservedly so. Losing your starting quarterback is a big deal, especially when your backup signal-caller throws in for the injured starter. But once everybody has talked themselves to death about how much UF will miss Jeff Driskel or value Tyler Murphy, its all sort of moot. If the Gators go anywhere in 2013, their defense will take them there. When asked last week if the defense should be held to a higher standard than the offense, linebacker Neiron Ball uttered the cliche that is so true to this Florida team. Defense wins championships, Ball said. No matter who lines up under center for UF, the offense doesnt change much. Both guys are mobile. Neither is going to throw for 300 yards consistently, but Florida certainly doesnt need that. The Gators will just pound the ball in the ground game. Driskel managed games well in 2012. I expect Murphy can do the same in 2013. Driskel wasnt going to put the team on his back and win games for the Gators. Neither will Murphy. Much like last season, this unit just needs to score occasionally and, most importantly, take care of the football. Once Kyle Christy snaps out of his current funk, Florida can sition and leave the game up to its defense. This elite group hasnt skipped a beat even after losing seven starters from 2012. Through three games, the UF defense ranks second nationally with only 212.3 yards allowed per game. Given the units youth, experience will only make them better. You see a playmaker like sophomore Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr., who showed off his game-changing ability with two forced fumbles in Saturdays victory. Meanwhile, freshman cornerback Vernon of the best players in an already extremely deep secondary. Once Loucheiz Purifoy (right thigh contusion) and Marcus Roberson (sprained left knee) return to health, UF might as well pass out free blankets to opposing wide receivers. And then there is the units leader, Dominique Easley. The upbeat, Chuckie dollwielding, I-dont-watch-football-I-just-liketo-hit-people defensive tackle is the engine that makes the unit go. And he only has one goal in mind. with a 4-0 record against Tennessee was a point of pride for him, Easley quickly made known his desire for the crystal football. I want to win the national championship, he said. Thats my point of pride. Toledo, Miami and Tennessee are nowhere near the best offenses Florida will face this year, but the Gators looked dominant in alone is promising, especially as the unit continues to jell. Also, the turnovers are coming. After Hargreaves two interceptions were Floridas UF was just picking on UTs offense. Upcoming games against Kentucky and Arkansas provide even more opportunities for Florida tity before facing LSU, Georgia, et al. After the Gators gave up two quick touchdowns in their loss to the Hurricanes on Sept. 7, coach Will Muschamp placed the blame on Floridas defense. Fair or not, thats the way it is in Gainesville. Whoever plays quarterback isnt going to change that dynamic. Murphys job is no different than Driskels take care of the ball and let the defense do the rest.Defense will determine UFs success regardless of quarterback Joe Morgantwitter: @joe_morgan Ryan Jones / Alligator ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24 consequences of the NCAAs new targeting rule on Saturday. In the fourth quarter of thenNo. 19 Floridas (2-1) 31-17 win against Tennessee (2-2) in Ben Hill Brian Poole was ejected after violating the new targeting rule designed to prevent head injuries. ter he made a high hit on Tennessee tight end Brendan Downs. Folreviewed the ejection, which is required by the rule change. After It was the right call, coach Will Muschamp said. I dont have any problem with the call. I got a problem with the rule. Brian Poole was not trying bang-bang play. By the NCAAs standards, targeting refers to above-theshoulder hits on players who are deemed to be defenseless. Previously, targeting was only a 15-yard penalty on the targeting player. The rule was changed before the season began. Because Poole was ejected in the second half of Saturdays game, he will also be ineligible against Kentucky on Sept. 28. Poole was the er to be ejected due to the new rule. I didnt like it, defensive tackle Dominique Easley said. You know, its football. Let him play. Injured Gators: Aside from quarterback Jeff Driskel, who suffered a season-ending leg injury see, several other Florida players were injured before and during Saturdays game. The Gators announced prior to the game that right tackle Tyler Moore (ankle), cornerback Marcus Roberson (knee) and running back Valdez Showers (ankle) would miss the game due to injury. Moore and Roberson both suffered their injuries against Miami on Sept. 7, while Showers injury came during practice on Wednesday. Muschamp said he expects Moore and Roberson to return against Kentucky but said Showers injury may keep the sophomore out longer. Cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy had to leave the game on Saturday due to a right thigh contusion. Muschamp said the injury was not serious, and he expects Purifoy to return for Kentucky. Wideouts suspended: Gators wide receivers Latroy Pittman and Demarcus Robinson both missed Saturdays game due to violations of team rules. Pittman was suspended before Floridas season opener against Toledo on Aug. 31. The team announced Robinsons suspension before the Volunteers on Saturday. Muschamp said after the game that both Pittman and Robinson will be eligible for next weeks game on Sept. 28.Poole

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13 ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer @adamDpincusVolunteers coach Butch Jones put it lightly when he said after the game that his team played the worst half of football it could play offensively. Tennessee generated 31 yards on 25 game, the Volunteers averaged 3.9 yards a play and committed six turnovers. Nathan Peterman, who completed 4-ofresponded to coach Will Muschamps challenge during the bye week for perfection after giving up two early touchdowns against Miami on Sept. 7. That was the whole focus to be more sound on defense, and to make sure everything we did on defense was perfect, defensive tackle Darious Bear Cummings said. Everybody came and told us how good of a defense we were, and we felt insulted because that wasnt the best we couldve played against Miami. We came out and I feel like we made a statement today against Tennessee. Cummings provided a moment of levConference) during a 31-17 win on Saturlost his grip while throwing the football. Cummings snagged the wobbly pass and looked to score a 70-yard interception return. Then, Dominique Easley ran into Cummings around the UT 40. I told them in the locker room after the game, I dont know who looks worse me jogging on campus or Darious returning that interception, Muschamp said. The interception marked Tennessees fourth turnover in less than a half of footmitting three turnovers itself, but Tennessee could never generate any consistent offense. recovered fumbles while Jabari Gorman, Brian Poole and Marcus Maye snagged interceptions in addition to Cummings.

Against Miami, the defense quarterback Stephen Morris. The defense to its coach on Saturday: Challenge accepted. With that whole bye week, he basically put us through camp again, Easley said. He expects perfection, so we cant get mad at him for that. Our defense, we take pride in it and take it very seriously. We came out with a very big chip on our shoulders and we wanted to play hard. We want to perfect it and do what were supposed to do play fast and physical.Gators defense dominant in victory against VolunteersSOCCER MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoLiz Slattery is the latest freshman to make an impact for the Gators. day night. I saw an opening, Slattery said. I just went for it. After being substituted in with fewer than 20 minutes remaining in the match, Slattery found the back of the net despite not usually serving as an offensive threat for the Gators. Defender Tessa Andujar, who vice to the box that put Slattery in the perfect position to quickly make something happen. The freshman took a precise of the box and sent the ball diagonally past Crimson Tide goalkeeper Emily Rusk and into the right corner of the net. Andujar collected the assist on the play. [Andujar] served the most beautiful ball, dropped it right at the penalty spot, Slattery said. I just went up for it and served it back to the post it came from. Coach Becky Burleigh added: Lizs goal was a great goal. She put it across the keeper. Textbook it was perfect. Slattery, a native of Cincinrienced scorer. She led the Cincinnati United Premier Crew Jr. Gold 94/95 club team with 13 goals and eight assists in 2011-2012. those goals coming during her senior year. Prior to the season, Burleigh said this crop of freshmen was an underrated group. So far, she is correct. leads the way, having scored is just one of eight true freshmen who have produced for the Gators. Katie Richmond and Kristen Cardano are the only non-goalkeeper freshmen who have not not just score goals, though. One stops them from happening.

It also offers optimism as the group continues to improve. Its so exciting because you think about the next four years, and I just cannot wait, Slattery said. Everyone in our class has so many different talents and so many of us have yet to even reveal those. I cant wait for the next four years.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 here, and its disappointing for him right now. Muschamp said after the game that Driskel would have surgery Sunday. The injury to UFs junior signalcaller forced Tyler Murphy, a junior for the Gators, into the starting role. Murphy responded better than Florida could have envisioned, completing 8 of 14 passing attempts for 134 yards and a touchdown. He added 84 rushing yards and a second touchdown on 10 carries to help the Gators beat the Volunteers for the ninth straight time dating back to 2004 the series longest stretch of dominance since Tennessee won 10 consecutive matchups from 19161953. It was always in the back of my mind that I might never play, said Murphy, who has been surpassed on the depth chart by Driskel, Jacoby Brissett, John Brantley, Jordan Reed and Trey Burton during his career at Florida. I just kept working hard and self and kept praying for an opportunity. It wasnt the way I wanted, but an opportunity is an opportunity. Murphy was given a chance after Driskel was knocked out of the quarter. Playing with a brace on his left leg after spraining his knee during a 21-16 loss to Miami, Driskel forced a pass into coverage on third and 3 during UFs second possession that was intercepted by Tennessees Devaun Swafford and returned 62 yards for a touchdown. After releasing the pass, Driskel was pulled awkwardly to the turf by Tennessees Marlon Walls, who rolled over the quarterbacks right foot. Driskel immediately signaled to Floridas training staff for help and spent time being looked at on the sideline before using a pair of crutches to get to the locker room. Muschamp did not learn the extent of Driskels injury until halftime but knew upon watching him ask for assistance that the Gators could be without their starter for an extended period of time. When he looked at the sideline and waved, I knew it was not good, Muschamp said. Im disappointed for Jeff because hes worked extremely hard for this season. One mans misfortunes are another mans opportunity, and Tyler Murphy certainly took advantage of his opportunity. Trailing 7-0, Murphy orchestrated a scoring drive on his second possession, which ended with a 23-yard next drive, Murphy connected with Solomon Patton on a swing pass that turned into a 52-yard catch-and-run of the game. Its tough for any team to lose your starting quarterback, Patton said. Jeff was doing a great job until he got hurt, and Murphy stepped up big time. The touchdown reception was Pattons second of the season. The senior has spearheaded a productive Florida receiving corps that lost three of its top four pass-catchers from 2012. Im pretty sure we were ranked the 10th wide receiver core in the Southeastern Conference, Burton said. We took that to heart. We didnt believe that. We thought we were a lot better than that, and we are trying to prove that. Touchdown runs by Mack Brown and Matt Jones sandwiched a made da a 24-10 lead midway through the third quarter. The Volunteers never got closer than two scores the rest of the way, losing to the Gators by double-digits for the seventh consecutive season. Losing is never accepted at Tennessee and never tolerated, UT coach Butch Jones said. But Im proud of our football team. I thought they showed resiliency. They didnt quit. They gave us an opportunity to be in the game at the end of the game, and we have to keep getting better. UF would have been in deeper trouble early in the game if not for the play of its defense, one of the nations elite units. Punter Kyle Christy mishandled a snap on Floridas opening possession, giving Tennessee the ball on the UF 15-yard line. But instead of UT grabbing early momentum, the Gators defense punched the Volunteers in the mouth. On the second play of UTs drive, Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. burst through the offensive line and hammered Volunteers running back Rajion Neal. The hit dislodged the ball, and Fowler had the presence of mind to recover it. Fowler later added a second forced fumble. Floridas defense forced six turnovers in the game. That was our whole game plan coming in, defensive tackle Dominique Easley said. Just to get turnovers. Easley was involved in a humorous encounter late in the second quarter. Tennessee quarterback Nathan Peterman who completed 4 of 11 passes for 5 yards before being pulled in favor of Justin Worley threw the second of his two interceptions into the arms of defensive lineman Darious Bear Cummings at UFs 30-yard line. Cummings appeared to be in position to return the interception for a touchdown until Easley inadvertently tripped him from behind. Hes too slow; you just gotta keep running, Easley said. I tried to get behind and help him out, but he started slowing down and then just started blowing. I seen him going down, so I didnt want him to lose the ball, so as he was falling down, I just pushed him right when he got to the ground. The amusing play was temporal for the Gators, who must now adjust to life without Driskel. Florida plays at Kentucky at 7 p.m. on Saturday and need a sharp defense as Murphy works his way into the full-time starting role. Man down, man up, that was our complete reaction, center Jon Harrison said. Nobody is freaked out. Its just our mentality. You have to be ready, and thats what coach Muschamp prepares us for.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 VOLLEYBALL RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer @rjschaffer The stat line reads the same for almost every game Taylor Brauneis leads Florida in assists while Chloe Mann and Ziva Recek take turns leading in kills. Another constant for the No. 4 Gators (111) has been strong play from their bench. Its not easy to come in off the bench and all the expectations that come with it, coach Mary Wise said after Saturdays sweep of Marquette. [The bench players] feel very A deep bench helped by the additions of freshman Alex Holston and sophomore transfer Mackenzie Dagostino has allowed Wise to relieve her starters. All but four players on the roster have played 21 or more sets. One of those four, Noami Santos-Lamb, is still recovering from an ACL injury that forced her to miss all of last season. Dagostino often gives way to Brauneis during critical points, but opponents feel her presence when she is on the court. Dagostino is second on UF with 2.75 assists per set and leads the team with a serving percentage of .984. In Floridas win over Iona on Sept. 14, Dagostino had a team-high 40 assists. Mann and Recek are two of the best hitters in the country, but Holston boasts a hitting percentage of .410 the third best clip among Gators who have at least 40 attempts and percentage that is in the top 40 in the nation. Holston is not the only role player having an unheralded year. Sophomore middle blocker Simone Antwi leads UF with 38 blocks and is third on the team with 2.9 points per set. Antwi is also second on the team with a serving percentage of .930, showing the versatility that the 6-foot-2 hitter has with her move from blocking to serving. During her freshman season, Antwi played sparingly. Former Gator Tangerine Wiggs saw most of the time on the court at middle blocker. With Wiggs departure, the Gators have relied on Antwi to be a fundamental contributor in all areas. Having Antwi perform on kills, blocks and serving is one of the main reasons Florida has only one loss this season, which came to No. 1 Penn State in the sixth game of the year. Not only have the Gators dropped only one match, but outside of their matchup with the Nittany Lions, they have lost only three sets, which includes games against No. 8 Stanford, LIU-Brooklyn and Western Michigan.
