TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 Courtesy to the Alligator Janet Yamamoto, a UF professor in infectious diseases, has discovered a connection between feline AIDS and HIV that may lead to a vaccine for humans and a better vaccine for cats. JENSEN WERLEY Alligator Staff Writer jwerley@alligator.orgA UF researcher has found a link between feline AIDS and HIV that may lead to a vaccine for humans and a better vaccine for cats. Janet Yamamoto, a UF professor in infectious diseases, discovered feline AIDS in 1986. By comparing feline and human viruses, FIV and HIV, she was able es, she wrote in an email. Yamamoto said the feline vaccine, released in 2002, works specifically with antiviral T cells that can kill the virus-infected cells without harming the normal cells. She said the study uses T cells from HIVpositive humans to see if they react with regions of the FIV protein to induce anti-HIV T cell activity. The research found that the FIV protein stimulated human T cells to produce anti-HIV activity, which is why it could be used as a component to an HIV vaccine. humans. The by-product of this HIV vaccine work will be the production of improved second-generation FIV vaccine, she said. Thus, and cats. Students in the health science a step in furthering HIV AIDS research. For HIV AIDS, they have a treatment, but you cant cure it, year pharmacy student. If they its really great. Yamamoto said the next step of her research is to test on at least two animal species before moving on to humans, as per Food and Drug Administration rules. The work described by Dr. Yamamoto has great promise as an approach to develop a vaccine against HIV AIDS, said John Dame, chairman of the department of infectious diseases and pathology, in a statement. It is a very exciting, fresh new approach to solving this major world health problem.Feline AIDS research promising for vaccines The by-product of this HIV vaccine work will be the production of improved second-generation FIV vaccine.

After sunset, all students are invited to attend a free international feast at 6:30 p.m. in the Stephen C. OConnell Center. We want everyone to get the experience of fasting and understand what it means in the old UF mechanical engineering senior and IOC president. By doing something small together we can make a difference on a global scale. IOC holds Fast-a-Thon every Fall in the against hunger, she said. IOC will donate the money it has raised through T-shirt sales this semester to Project Downtown and the United Nations World who pledged to fast will have money donated on their behalf to one of these organizations.

DANIELA GELATKAAlligator Contributing WriterWonder Bread is making a comeback, but the classic packaged in white plastic with red, blue and yellow polka dots hasnt hit Gainesville stores yet. For the past year, the classic white sandwich bread was not on shelves after Hostess But now, Flowers Foods, which bought Wonder from Hostess Brands in July, is bringing it and three other bread brands Merita, Home Pride and Butternut back onto store shelves throughout the U.S., USA Today reported. Local grocers say they havent heard much but expect distributors to stock the shelves when it becomes available. Taylor Hennings, a 23-yearold employee of the Stephen C. OConnell Center, said her parents used to buy Wonder Bread when she was younger. I think I would try it at least once, she said. Just to see if its the same from when I was a kid. When Alyson Huber, a 21year-old advertising senior, thinks of Wonder Bread, she said she recalls the small sandwich-shaped boxes she used to tote sandwiches in as a kid. But now, as an adult, she isnt brand-loyal. I dont really buy any particular brand, she said. I usually always try to get whole wheat. Its supposed to be better for you. But she said the breads marketing is positive and memorable. The logo makes me think its a friendly, happy brand, Huber said. Wonder Bread is known to last longer than other brands before becoming moldy, but that just means it may have different preservatives, said Wendy Dahl, an assistant UF professor in the food science and human nutrition department. She said white breads, including Wonder Bread, usugrain breads, but it still counts as a serving of grains. It wouldnt be the best choice, she said. We generally recommend whole grains. The Wonder brand has been a part of the American food industry since 1921. It was sold pre-sliced. The breads comeback may invite members of a younger generation who are unfamiliar with the brand to try it, such as Caroline Carey. The 18-year-old UF health sciences freshman said she usually buys whole wheat, but she is somewhat familiar with the brand. I dont know that much about it, she said. Id probably buy it.

LIFESTYLEWonder Bread to rise again ORGANIZERS HOPE TO RESTART THE PROGRAM WHEN THE SHUTDOWN ENDS. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgAs the days of government shutdown add up, Alachua County programs have begun to feel the effects on a local level. The countys Foster Grandparent Program laid off all 92 volunteer grandparents and temporarily reassigned three staff members because it was unable to draw federal funds for the program. The program matches volunteers more than 55 years old with children who have special needs in daycares and public schools around the county. The volunteers receive a nontaxable stipend payment of $2.65 an hour, according to the Alachua County website. It will be unavailable until the government shutdown has ended, said Minnie Rolark, a county programs director. The funding dry-up contradicted what the Corporation of National Services told county representatives. During a teleconference call last the shutdown would not affect the Foster Grandparent Program, according to an email from Alachua County Manager Betty Baker. These grandparents are in over 32 sites, in schools, after-school programs and daycares, Rolark said. Thats going to be missed. Barbara Perry, 72, has volunteered with the program for about nine years at Charles W. Duval Elementary School. She said she was devastated by the layoff, and children will suffer because of it. Its hurt us all, including the kids, she said. Some children, they need a hug. They need to call you grandma and know that grandma is there to love them and help them and support them in their education. Candie Nixon, director for CHOICES, said relaying the news to the volunteers and schools was disheartening. The foster grandparents were shocked and surprised at being laid off, she said. Some of the volunteers voiced concerns regarding the teachers and students ability to get along without their assistance. The programs three permanent staff members have temporarily been reassigned to CHOICES, a program that provides health education to residents. December, said Rolark, and if the government shutdown is still in effect after then, the transferred staff members will be unemployed. Baker said for the employees sake, she hopes the shutdown ends soon. Since it was a grant-funded program, they would have been laid off on the very day the memo went out, she said. So we temporarily reassigned them with the hope this can be resolved before that. Though the program is not operait will kick back into gear when the shutdown ends. As soon as were able to draw down funds to be able to pay volunteers and staff, we should be able to notify volunteers that the layoff status is over, she said. If volunteers are still interested in being foster grandparents, well let them know when the program is back.Grandparents laid off because of shutdown

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 The federal government is being held hostage by a small cabal of the Republican Party whose popularity is on the decline. Rep. Ted Yoho is one of the 80 Republicans in the House of Representatives who signed onto Rep. Mark Meadows memo to Speaker John Boehner calling for the Affordable Care Act to be defunded through the budget. The health care legislation, passed through the House and Senate, was signed by the president and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. It is a law that was not passed using the backhanded tomfoolery weve seen this past week in Congress. If the House wishes to change the health care law, it should use the normal legislative process. The tactics being employed by Rep. Yoho are those of a hostage-taker who is desperate to remain politically relevant.This shutdown is little more than an Affordable Care Act proxy war with the nearly 800,000 furloughed federal workers and more than 1 million unpaid essential staff as its collateral damage. On his recent vote to shut down the federal government, Yoho said, President Obama and Senate Democrats keep insisting it is the House that is being unreasonable, yet I dont see a single provision voted on today that doesnt have the support of a majority of the American people. The American people do not want the livelihood of the federal workforce or the services they provide to be shut down due to zealous politicking. Some recent polling proves Yoho and his cohorts are in the minority. A Quinnipiac University poll found 72 percent of Americans are opposed to shutting down the federal government to defund the health care legislation. The CNN/ ORC International poll found only 26 percent of Americans approve of the GOP handling of the shutdown. The unpopular nature of this tactic is becoming more loathed as agencies and services are shutting down. The Head Start program, which provides early education to more than 1 million needy children, has started to close due to this shutdown. This has already affected more than 400 children in the state of Florida. The Women, Infants, and Children program, which helps ensure the nutrition of underprivileged families, is set to run out of funds any day. This will affect the nutrition of 9 million mothers and babies around the nation and more than 16,000 participants in the North Central Florida WIC Program. Yohos actions are literally taking young children out of schools and formula out of the mouths of babes. This shutdown puts an unnecessary burden on our 2.8 million federal workers and disproportionately hurts the most vulnerable among us. Its time for Rep. Yoho to abandon this farce and do his job. After all, Yoho is one of the few federal workers still getting paid. Rep. Yoho needs to help end shutdownGuest Column Amateur hour is on full display in our nations capital or, to be more precise, amateur week. The government remains in shutdown mode while the president refuses to budge on Obamacare, Republicans do not have an endgame in sight and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid name-calls and refuses to negotiate with the House. The House continues to pass piecemeal legislations that fund part of the federal government. These approthe National Institutes of Health. While these areas are supported by both sides, the House refuses to fund some other areas of the government. Why is this the case? When you look at some of the other areas of the government, you start to see why, and you begin to realize Take a look at the cabinet departments. According to Government Executive, 95 percent of the Environmental Protection Agency, 96 percent of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, 98 percent of the Federal Communications Commission and 95 percent of Department of Education employees were deemed to be nonessential during the current government shutdown. Is paying for such nonessential employees Ironically, the Department of Veteran Affairs deemed only 4 percent of its employees nonessential, but it is one of the most days. However, if they are in a major U.S. city, the number ticks up to more than 540 days. And the VA have been questioned time and money to reward roughly $573,000 in bonuses to its employees. Safety net programs for the poor and disabled are also affected by the shutdown. While caring for the poor and disabled should be a priority for everyone, many people neglect to talk able Care Act. When you have a big government, its citizens have to entrust the many functions of the state to capable and able-minded politicians. Because of the ever-increasing size and scope of the government, the politicians are forced to deal with more and more issues on a consistent basis that must be addressed. However, one would be wrong in their assumption of capable and able-minded politicians. In having a big government whether you agree with this or not you need to ensure that you have the ability to tackle one issue and move on to the next. This is currently not the case. Take the government shutdown, for example. Regardless of your political spin, we are in a government shutdown, period. And no side is budging, period. And no side is talking to each other, period. The mentality in Washington is not, Lets get things done so we can solve another problem. Rather it is, Let us posture politically until it becomes too much of a political risk. The Wall Street Journal saying: We are winning ... It doesnt really matter to us, how long the shutdown lasts, because what matters is the end result. Such is an unfortunate reality when the government tries to perform too many roles. The time and consideration for important issues is too often squandered for political points and spin. And lets be perfectly clear; shutting the government down be. But conversely, having a federal government that is run so programs start with good intentions, they can and will be mismanaged and hurt us in the long run. The debate that should be taking place is one of government substance: tax policy, regulation policy or immigration, for example. Instead, the debate about utter governmental dysfuncToo big to fail? Not in the U.S. governments caseColumn Michael Beatoopinions@alligator.org Letter to the EditorStudent Government elections are pointless How amazing, the Swamp Party won the overwhelming majority of senate seats in this Falls SG elections. Can anyone say that they are surprised? Can anyone, without a restrained smirk, honestly say that they thought the Students Party had a chance? My guess is that not a single soul in all of the 50,000 or so students that attend the University of Florida would respond yes to either of those questions. This is neither good, nor bad. It just simply is. The Swamp Party regularly sweeps the competition with a combination of puppies, commands and just plain ol loitering. Full of frat stars and sorority queens, the Swamp Party, formed last year from the withered remains of the Unite Party, which was rumored to have been thrown aside after numerous Greek scandals swept each respective row, has a history of furthering the Greek agenda while dent population. Remember when you voted for the new construction on the Reitz Union? Yea, neither do I. The Greekcontrolled SG was again rumored to have pushed it through, even after the majority of students voted against it. Excuse me. Im just a little bitter I wont be able to enjoy any fall lunches on the grassy steps behind the Reitz. So, all in all, whats the point in having elections when the system continually leans to one side? I know that we have to have them in order to resemble a fair college democracy, but lets be honest, when you have fraternity and sorority presidents telling every member of their house that they absolutely must vote Swamp, and do anything to convince others to vote Swamp, whats the point? Greeks have control, and I dont foresee a future where Greeks lose that control, unfortunately. But hey, maybe its a good thing to have the SG controlled by people who value the number of keg stands they can do over actually listening to the student body, right?

Im a documented immigrant, but its always been an issue, said Chrisley Carpio, a 21-year-old UF history senior. These people live here, some of them know English better than Spanish, and then theyre deported back to countries they an issue. A student-led petition was recently created that proposes a change to UFs policy on outof-state tuition undocumented students have to pay. UF student organizations including CHISPAS, the Hispanic Student Association, UF Students for a Democratic Society and the Institute of Hispanic-Latino Culture have been collecting signatures before they present the petition to UF President Bernie Machen on Oct. 17. Students can sign the petition at chn.ge/19vwWaG. As of press time, about 5,900 students have signed. Janine Sikes, UF spokeswoman, said the university cannot legally offer in-state tuition or in-state tuition waivers to undocumented students until Congress passes the DREAM Act or until Florida legislature passes a similar law. Right now, we depend highly on the Florida Board of Governors for any direction on this topic, she said. Mariana Castro, an undocumented immigrant from Peru, from the government. Castro, a 19-year-old neurobiological sciences freshman, said she was not anticipating the problems that would come after graduating high school. Once I started at UF, I realized what a long way I had come, but I also realized how far behind I was, Castro said. Every credit hour I take is about $900. Castro said she is struggling to pay for just one class a semester. A Bright Futures scholarship was awarded to her upon graduation from high school but was taken away once her undocumented status was taken into account. UF is supposed to be the pio said. This petition needs to before it can be passed through any state Senate. We will be going to Tigert, no matter what. UF Student Government is sponsoring the UF Immigration Reform Symposium on Thursday, which will feature a conversation with Sen. Darren Soto and Sen. Dwight Bullard about the importance of tuition equality for undocumented students. Right now, there is no policy regarding immigration or tuition equity for students, said Liana Guerra, a 20-yearold political science and economics junior.

Anthony is scheduled to give the deposition on Wednesday to Zenaida Gonzalezs attorneys. Anthony told detectives that a baby sitter named Zenaida Gonzalez kidnapped her 2-yearold daughter Caylee while the detectives were investigating the girls 2008 disappearance. Anthony was acquitted in 2011 of murdering her daughter. Gonzalez claims in a state lawsuit that she was defamed by those statements and should be considered a creditor in Anthonys federal bankruptcy case. In the motion, Anthonys attorneys claim Gonzalez is on a quest for publicity and that she is a principal orchestrator of the media circus surrounding Anthony. Moreover, Anthony already has been deposed in state court and she would assert her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, her attorney, David Schrader, said in the motion. Although Gonzalez counsel has repeatedly told the press and other that his goal in this case is to break Ms. Anthonys story, he will not do so and should not be allowed to put Ms. Anthony through another argumentative and abusive proceeding ... Schrader said. Gonzalezs attorney, Matt Morgan, said in an email that Anthony should be held accountable under the law like any other defendant in a civil lawsuit. We know she doesnt want to answer, that doesnt mean she shouldnt have to, Morgan said.Casey Anthonys deposition debatedCAMPUS KAI SUAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Model United Nations visited the Big Apple and came back with a big prize. The eight-student UF MUN team took home Best Small Delegation and six individual awards at the Columbia Model United Nations in New York competition held last week.

At the conference, the delegates simulated crisis scenarios while astorical characters. Joyce said attending the conference is about $150 to $250 out-of-pocket for students, and Student Government reimburses a portion of that amount. UF MUN beat the Florida International University Model UN team, who won Best Small Delegation last year and was its biggest competition, said Troy Robinson, a 21-year-old political science and history senior. We were going into the competition with the express goal of coming back with a delegation award, said Robinson, vice president of external affairs.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 LIFESTYLE ALEXANDRA PARISHAlligator Contributing WriterSome UF women could leave than they had as freshmen. Despite high academic achievement among most of the female students surveyed at Boston College, a weaker sense of self-esteem was reported, especially compared to many male students, including those with lower GPAs. Some of the contributing factors mentioned by the female students included pressure to have a perfect body image, hookup culture rather ing roommates year-to-year. Michael Murphy, a psychologist at UFs Counseling & Wellness Center, said he thinks the study is relevant to colleges everywhere. One of the things that happens during the college years is that theres a sense of developing that identity, and theres a lot of pressure that goes along with that, he said. Murphy also said he thinks women are under an extra amount of scrutiny when it comes to their post-college plans. Women are expected to think of multiple things, and I would think that could be an especially daunting task, especially if it doesnt look like youre going to get the job you wanted, or if youre not paired off with somebody, Murphy said. The study gathered information from a survey administered at freshman orientation and from a senior of Institutional Research, Planning & Assessment was able to track speyears and see how their responses to questions like What do you think of your academic achievement? and How would you rate your drive to succeed? changed. But Courtney McKenna said she doesnt relate. The 20-year-old UF telecommunication junior said she has used the social and academic pressures of I feel like since freshman year, more each year, McKenna said. as a student and what I want to do with my future.Women leave college less One of the things that happens during the college years is that theres a sense of developing that identity, and theres a lot of pressure that goes along with that.Michael Murphypsychologist at UF Counseling & Wellness Center

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Florida freshman Pamela Begics status remains uncertain after suffering an injury Sunday. Read the story on page 16. Game time announcedFloridas game against Missouri on Oct. 19 will kick off at 12:21 p.m. and air on the SEC Network, ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer@adamDpincus Call Tyler Murphy a game manager. The redshirt junior is not offended. Neither is his coach, Will Muschamp. To them, the phrase game manager implies a quarterback who moves the football, converts third downs and puts his team in a position to win. Thats one of the greatest compliments you can have as a quarterback, is a game manager, Muschamp said. A guy that does what hes supposed to do. I dont know where that became a bad word in the coaching profession, but thats what I think anyways. Muschamp mentioned Tom Brady as a game manager while describing Murphy after No. 17 Florida defeated Arkansas on Saturday. Brady, who does what the third-year coach wants from all of his quarterbacks maintain complete control of the game at all times. Since taking over for an injured ter against Tennessee, Murphy has looked the part of Muschamps ideal dia on Monday wearing a gray Nike Dri-FIT shirt with CONSISTENCY written across his chest. Considering his play during the past three weeks, he could not have picked more appropriate attire.

McCarron, who Murphy said he attempts Murphy considers McCarron the perfect game manager. PHILBUSTER One minute he is a teddy bear. The next he becomes a grizzly bear. The juxtaposition of emotions shown by Dante Fowler Jr. is the most enjoyable part of the Gators this season. Fowler, a sophomore Buck linebacker, became the leader of Floridas defense when Dominique Easley was lost for the season due to a knee injury suffered while practicing prior to a matchup with Kentucky. All Fowler has done in the two games since the Gators lost Easley is total nine tackles, including three for a loss, and notch two sacks. For the season, Fowler leads the team with seven tackles for a loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles. But the most refreshing part of Fowler is his willingness to be candid with the media at all times. Fowler was disappointed with his performance during Floridas 21-16 loss to Miami on Sept. 7. Rather than cower from the press, he spoke openly and honestly about wanting to play better and live up to the expectations placed on him. When he won Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Sept. 23 after thoroughly dismantling the entire Tennessee offense, he shared with us his joy in beginning to realize his immense talents. gifted. And best of all, hes enjoying it. Look at me, Im smiling right now, he said Monday. I like to play around and stuff. I just turned 19, so I try to live life. Im still a kid. Im not 21 yet. My mom still washes my clothes and things like that. Fowlers playfulness is not just a joy to the media; he lifts the spirits of his teammates and coaches on a daily basis.

With offensive coordinator Cam Cameron at the helm, the Tigers rank third in the Southeastern Conference with 45.5 points per game a touchdown better than any other offense under Les Miles at LSU. Quarterback Zach Mettenberger ranks third in the SEC with 289.7 passing yards per game and leads the conference with 15 touchdown passes. Should Saturdays contest simply come down to which teams offense can put more points on the board, coach Will Muschamp would be OK with that. real caught up in all that stuff when I was a coordinator. When Im a head coach, I want to win. If it takes 51-50, lets go. of a breakdown defensively, Muschamp began laughing. Winning is all that matters, he said. Muschamps players arent so sure he would survive an offensive shootout. Buck linebacker Dante Fowler Jr. said winning a game like that wouldnt make things much better for the defense. Id have nightmares, Fowler said of the hypothetical. Id be scared. I dont even know how he would physically handle that. I honestly dont know what would happen. I wouldnt want it, though. Defensive tackle Darious Bear Cummings added: Were going to get chewed out about the 50 points. But a win is a win here. Revenge on their minds: The last time the Gators traveled to Tiger Stadium, they left with their tails between their legs.

CHUCK KINGSBURY Alligator Staff Writer@chuckkingsbury With Week 5 of the NFL season in the books, we take a look at a few former Gators who made the most tangible impact for their respective teams. Brandon Spikes, linebacker: Even without the gap-eating Vince Wilfork commanding double teams, the New England Patriots are developing a successful defense. That would not be possible without middle linebacker Brandon Spikes. The former All-American has seen an increased role with Wilfork sidelined due to an ACL injury. Spikes is an excellent run defendwith his ability to stack and shed continues to be a force against opposing running attacks. In 2013, Spikes has totaled 25 tackles, including two for a loss. But where he made the biggest impact on Sunday against the Bengals came in pass coverage. Arguably his biggest knock entering the pros, Spikes has been a liability defending the pass. He is often sidelined against multiple-receiver sets in favor of New Englands nickel defense or for a more agile, coveragefriendly linebacker. But against the Bengals, Spikes shined in coverage, intercepting his seven total tackles as the Patriots defense surrendered just 13 points. Carlos Dunlap, defensive end: New England has been touted for its play on the offensive line, but on Sunday it failed to hold against a clearly superior, aggressive Cincinnati Bengals defensive line led by Carlos Dunlap. The Bengals put constant pressure on Tom Brady, sacking the quarterback, pressing the pocket and forcing the veteran to throw from uncomfortable angles. But Dunlaps impact was felt in the run game. The 6-foot-6, 280-pound defensive make tackles and made urgent plays when the Bengals offense failed to build steady drives. In the second quarter of Sundays game, Dunlap forced a fumble on a would-be scoring drive for the Patriots. Not coincidentally, the Patriots failed to enter the end zone for the 2009. Joe Haden, cornerback: A week after getting the best of one of the leagues premier receivers, Cincinnaly dominant during the Cleveland Browns win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.

I try to copycat A.J. McCarron a little bit, Murphy said. He does a great job managing the game and taking what the defense gives him. His third year being the starter, hes making a lot of plays and put the team on his back a few times. McCarron returned for his senior season in pursuit of a third-straight national championship. At a school that has boasted quarterbacks Joe Namath and Kenny Stabler, McCarron might outshine them all when his colHes already the Alabama career touchdown leader and has a realistic shot at breaking most of the schools remaining 10 passing records. Murphy is in a much different situation than McCarron, but he has received plenty of support from his teammates. Hes doing an awesome job. He keeps a positive attitude on the sidelines, senior Solomon Patton said. If we come out without scoring, or a municates with us and makes sure we dont drop our heads and (makes sure we) stay on the right track. ulating an opposing quarterback one that stands as a likely obstacle to an SEC Championship? Not at all, he said. The results speak for themselves. Any time theres a guy with sevsomething right, Murphy said. A.J. has been doing a great job. Hopefully, I would like to be a national champion and win some SEC championships. He has been winning, so whatever hes doing, he has been doing it right. ing and copy what hes doing well. Murphy admires McCarroncontinued making trips with the team to honor Easley, who is his teammate, but more importantly, his friend. He even puts a smile on the face of coach Will Muschamp, who is man on the UF campus. But how could you not love Fowler, espehe is blowing up. Dante has a great personality, Muschamp said. Hes a lot of fun to be around and coach. Hes a joy to coach. Hes always got a smile on his face. So how does a fun-loving 19-year-old transform into a terstreak of a junkyard dog on the As soon as I wake up on Saturday, its game time, Fowler said. Im locked in and focused. Through two seasons, a lockedin Fowler has become a bigger nightmare than the thought of facing Muschamp after missing a defensive assignment against an SEC opponent. He is powerfully athletic and stunningly quick for someone who is 6-foot-3 and 266 pounds. His ability to read and diagnose plays in a split second is nothing short of amazing. Next time you watch Fowler dominate an opposing offensive front, think about his mom still doing his laundry and his teammates watching him tote that doll everywhere he goes. If we can enjoy Fowler even half as much as he enjoys being himself, everyone will be a little happier.

Redshirt junior quarterback Tyler Murphy added: It was tough. We really had a good week of practice, and come out with a loss, it hurt. Especially after losing to Alabama. I thought we gave a great effort. We probably didnt execute the way we should have. But I thought we played hard. Muschamp mentioned last season how he addressed the team following that 30-point loss to the Tigers in the locker room. He told his players not to forget the disappointment of the defeat. When Muschamp enters Tiger Stadium on Saturday, hell remember. If youre a competitor, it should, Muschamp said of the 2011 loss serving as motivation. And I know we have a bunch of competitive guys in the locker room. Sometimes, some people dont get motivated by negatives. They dont want to think about negatives. They want to think about positive things. So, I think everybody is motivated differently, but most of the guys Ive been around certainly will use that. I will. Cornerback honored: Loucheiz Purifoy was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, Monday. Purifoy returned for a touchdown, forced a fumble and recorded four tackles, three pass breakups Purifoy is a playmaker, Fowler said. Hes just a baller overall. Hes a very good player.
