Times Higher Educations World University Rankings 2013-2014 came out Wednesday and placed UF at 128 out of 400. The rankings, powered by information company Thomson Reuters, judged universities on teaching, research, industry income, citations and international outlook. UF dropped six places from the 2012-2013 study and three from 2012-2011. The university was unranked in the 2010-2011 listing.

The peanuts can be purchased at McCarty Hall A two hours before home football games until the end of halftime and on Fridays during football season from 4 to 6 p.m. Theres also an online ordering option.

Diane Rowland, an associate agronomy professor at UF and an adviser for the sponsoring clubs, said she received requests from alumni and game attendees asking for the sale to return. Rowland said she decided to help with the sale because its also helping Floridas economy, in which peanuts are a key crop. The state is one of the top producers of peanuts in the U.S., she said.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 LIFESTYLE ELIZABETH BOONE Alligator Contributing WriterIn Gainesville, the show still goes on. After a sold-out run of Miss Witherspoon, the latest comedy produced by UFs School of Theatre + Dance, students continue to express interest in live art, contrary to the national norm. Attendance rates for musicals dropped by 9 percent since 2008, according to a recent survey by the National Endowment of the Arts. Plays have been hit even harder by a 12 percent drop over the same period. Fortunately for the UF theater department, even with the sold-out run, students were still scrambling to see the stage. Veronica Salgueiro, a 20-yearold UF advertising and theater junior, arrived an hour and a half early Friday to squeeze onto the shows waiting list. Everyone should experience the art of live performance, Salgueiro said. bers may be the result of some students using $2 coupons to attend performances because of class requirements. Caitlyn Lower, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior, said she understands the widespread declining attendance rates. She wouldnt spend more than $10 for a show she hadnt heard good reviews about. Than Nguyen, a 20-year-old UF botany junior, said she likes the theater art form. But she was disappointed she couldnt see Miss Witherspoon because it was sold out. The show ran from Sept. 20 to Sept. 29. Seeing live theater makes you more cultured and rounded, Nguyen said. You get emotion and expression (from watching a show).UF performance sells out despite national attendance trend The next UF School of Theatre + Dance performance, Never the Sinner, directed by Ralf Remshardt, opens today at the UF Constans Theatre in the Nadine M.

Science rules. Happy Friday! New Iranian president hasnt delivered In an unsurprising and opportune moment last president. Hassan Rouhani, Shiite cleric and newest presidential elect, opted against shaking hands with President Barack Obama at the U.N. General Assembly. According to The New York Times, Obama reportedly phoned Rouhani upon invitation with the intent to discuss Irans nuclear program. The 15-minute phone call has since been callously dubbed historic by Western media outlets, who neglect to acknowledge the lack of progress made by both indirect and direct dialogue. Instead, Rouhani refuted any claim the phone call was invited and, according to Reuters, claimed the call was a U.S.-led initiative. Reuters also reported Rouhani was greeted by eggwielding hardliners upon his return to the Islamic republic and even had a shoe hurled at him. The Iranian presidents unwillingness to shake Obamas hand and his return to a hostile Iran reinforce the understanding that the Ayatollah still exerts a full paternalistic power in Iran. Yet there seems to be an air of optimism surrounding the newly elected president. Indeed, the image of the Iranian reformer is quite familiar. In 1997, Mohammad Khatami was elected to the presidency with promises of reforms, according to the BBC. the hopeful reforms and, as a result, Khatamis policies failed. Reformist leader Mir Hussein Mousavi suffered a similar fate in 2009 when elections were rigged against him, the Guardian reported. Mousavi then faced the wrath of the Ayatollah for encouraging democratic reforms amidst the Arab Spring, a venture for which he was placed on house arrest. With such an appalling level of autonomy, its obvious why spectators hold Iranian presidents to such a low standard. For instance, after conducting a speech with CNN in which Rouhani allegedly received praise from those who thought him to be an anomaly. Yet the Iranian news agency Fars claimed the CNN translation was misleading and that the word Holocaust was never used, according to Slate. This begs the question: Can the international community trust a man who refuses to shake another mans hand? Or politely receive a phone call without denying view? Despite his promises of reform, Rouhanis actions have shown he is not a reformist or revolutionary but quite simply another tool plucked by the Ayatollah from his garage of obtuse theologians. Accepting the Holocaust occurred or picking up a phone call doesnt qualify as reform. has to show his willingness to follow through on promises not to pursue nuclear weapons, oversee democratic change in his country and break free of the Ayatollahs grip. be for those outside of Iran to hold him accountable to his promises.

Jeff Holcomb. These numbers are average for Fall, he said. But last week, a woman was sent to the hospital with severe injuries after she was hit by a bicyclist while getting off a bus on Gale Lemerand Drive. In Florida, a bike is considered a vehicle, so you have to abide by the same rules, Holcomb said. He also mentioned that riding a bike with headphones is illegal. At nighttime, cyclists should have one white-colored light in the front and one red-colored light in the back, he said. Mainly, Holcomb said police want to remind cyclists and pedestrians to practice common sense. For example, if a bus stops and nobody gets on, its likely someone from the bus will be getting off, so cyclists should slow down to avoid hitting someone, he said. I guess the warning is just to remind bicyclists to use a little bit of judgment, he said. Robbie Pomeroy, a 19-year-old UF criminology sophomore who got grazed by a bicycle last year, said he thinks similar incidents are isolated and can be prevented by pedestrian awareness. As you get accustomed to being on a really bike-friendly campus, you become more aware, he said. Its kind of a pedestrians job, even though it should kind of be the other way around.In wake of accident, University Police asks cyclists to abide by rules Running a red light: $252 Moving violation: $154 Non-moving violation: $104 Bicycle operation violation: $52.50 Bicyclists must yield right-of-way to pedestrians Bicyclists must orally signal to a pedestrian before passing Bicyclists may not ride with earbuds Between sunset and sunrise, bikers must display a white light on the front of the back Jeff Holcomb

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Captains announcedWill Muschamp announced via Twitter that offensive lineman Kyle Koehne, receiver Trey Burton, Buck linebacker Ronald Powell and safety Jabari Gorman will serve as Floridas captains against Arkansas. Savannah Jordan and the Florida soccer team face South Carolina tonight at 7. Read the story on page 14.Golfer to lead cheerPGA veteran Chris DiMarco will serve as the honorary Mr. Two Bits prior to Floridas game against Arkansas on Saturday at 7 p.m. in The Swamp. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusA 67-yard run takes more than a running back hitting the hole. Matt Jones career-long scamper against Kentucky on Saturday took two key blocks from center Jon Harrison and left tackle D.J. Humphries. Harrison, the anchor of Floridas offensive line, pulled around left tackle to engage linebacker Avery Williamson as Humphries chipped safety Ashely Lowery. The two linemen sprung Jones, rushing yards during a 24-7 victory. Athletic offensive linemen are nothing new for No. 18 Florida, which will host the Southeastern Conferences sacks leader in Arkansas at 7 p.m. on Saturday in Weve always had it in our scheme, offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. Its just kind of sometimes with fronts, it depends who, (and) which guys are pulling. Its not always him. It kind of depends on what defense theyre playing. Although pulling, a run-blocking technique, will not be used against the Arkansas pass rush, Floridas offensive line will have to protect the edges with two of the conferences best ends. Razorbacks defensive ends Chris Smith and Trey Flowers have combined for nine sacks this season. Smith leads the conference with six, which is 1.5 sacks more than Kentuckys ZaDarius Smith, who ranks second. They can win one-on-one battles. They can demand combinations where they single somebody else up, Pease said. And I think their scheme, you know, how they maneuver them and use games with them, its tough. We have a lot to handle with that. Florida has experience dealing with standout defensive linemen. Texas A&M feasted on quarterback Jeff Driskel, who was mak20-17 victory last season. Eight sacks later including three from Damontre Moore it appeared the Florida offensive line could not measure up. Redshirt junior Tyler Murphy will face arguably his toughest test in just his second career start. He was sacked once against Kentucky. Arkansas does not only boast a potent punch coming off the edge. The Razorbacks starting two defensive tackles seniors Robert Thomas and Byran Jones are 325 and 318 pounds, respectively. Sophomore DeMarcus Hodge, Thomas backup, tips the scales at 345 pounds. Well have different protections. Whether its a sixor sevenman protection utilizing our tight ends and backs to chip on Smith and Flowers, coach Will Muschamp said. Theyre really good rushers. They have two big guys inside who do a good job of pushing the pocket, but theres no question we need to account for them. on the mend. Excluding starting right tackle Chaz Green, whose shoulder surgery ended his season before it started, the Gators have a relatively healthy unit. They will need it when the Razorbacks travel to Gainesville for Theyve got two speed defensive ends. Theyre really good on the edges, right guard Jon Halapio said.

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2013 Kan Li / Alligator StaffSavannah Jordan (left) battles for the ball during Floridas 3-0 victory against Alabama on Sept. 20. SOCCER MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoAfter a 1-0 loss to Missouri on Sunday, Savannah Jordan just wants to focus on the rest of the schedule. The freshman forward took six of Floridas 21 shots against Mizzou but couldnt get the ball in the net. You just have to move on, Jordan said. You have to put it behind you because there are so many more games this season. Now in the midst of Southeastern Conference play, No. 8 Florida (8-21, 2-1 SEC) will look to redeem itself when it plays No. 19 South Carolina (9-1-1, 2-1 SEC) on Friday at 7 p.m. at James G. Pressly Stadium. South Carolina is always really defensively organized, coach Becky Burleigh said. Theyre hard to score on because they dont take a lot of risk going forward, but they like to counter. We have to be aware of the counter, and I think cuting offensively. The Gators face the Gamecocks earlier in the season than in past years. Florida has a history of playing South Carolina close to the end of the regular season and right before the SEC Tournament. The last time the two teams met, Florida blanked South Carolina 3-0 on Oct. 25. After a rocky road weekend, Burleigh said the team worked on the mistakes it made during Sundays Missouri matchup. We have to play for 90 minutes or do whatever it takes, Burleigh said. We probably played for 70 minutes we just were a little bit behind and not quite in rhythm. It allowed [Missouri] to get on the scoreboard and that made us have to chase the game. Jordan added: After Sundays game, I think were really going to be focused in wanting to come out with a ger than before. A major part of playing the full 90 minutes is Jordan and her ability to score. the fourth minute against Mississippi on Sept. 27, Jordan has 11 goals this ers for sixth in the nation. My preparations will exceed my expectations, Jordan said of her success this season. I thoroughly prepared myself coming in. Coming in the spring was a step up and helped me to exceed for the fall now. It wasnt planned at all, but Im happy its happening. I just hope I can keep it up and help the team win. Getting past the Gamecocks defense will be critical for Jordan, while the Gators key to success will be makeas when the defense targets the freshman phenom. Florida concludes the weekend against Auburn (4-6-1, 0-3 SEC) on Sunday at 2 p.m. at James G. Pressly Stadium. The Gators beat the Tigers to win the 2012 SEC Tournament title. For us, its another chance to get three points, Burleigh said of the weekends matchups. We want to go into each SEC game trying to get three points, no matter how that happens.Freshman hoping to help Gators rebound
