PHILLIP HEILMAN and JOE MORGANAlligator Staff Writers@phillip_heilman, @joe_morganJordan Reed lost his grip on a day when the Gators lost theirs. Cruising through a resurgent second season under coach Will Muschamp, Florida headed to Jacksonville undefeated at 7-0 and ranked second behind Alabama in the BCS standings. Muschamp had UF in play for its third crystal football in seven seasons thanks to a renewed focus on dominating the ground game, playing tough defense and winning the turnover battle. But in Floridas tightest contest of the season, they came unraveled. Six of the Gators 15 turnovers in 2012 ended up in the hands of Bulldogs. Meanwhile, Georgia controlled the ground game on the strength of Todd Gurleys 118 rushing yards on 27 carries. Gurley was the only player to eclipse the 100-yard mark against the nations fourthranked rushing defense in 2012. Floridas other 12 opponents averaged only 93.8 yards on the ground. On the other side of the ball, the Gators stout running game faltered. Mike Gillislee, who entered the game ranked fourth in the Southeastern Conference with 652 rushing yards in seven games, tallied only 77 yards on 22 carries. The rest of Floridas offense lost two yards on the ground, a number hurt by Still, Florida had a chance. Trailing 17-9 with 2:21 remaining, quarterback Jeff Driskel found the sure hands of his most reliable pass-catcher in one-on-one coverage at the 16-yard line. Reed, who fumbled just pass, broke a tackle and set his sights on the end zone. Once he reached the 5-yard line, he went airborne. Reed landed at the 1, but the ball kept going. That one fumble. Reed lay where he landed, staring into the black sky. In a game full of mistakes, his was last. But Reed did not lose the game alone. anything, fortunate. The Gators did not play well enough to win. They had not played Muschamps brand of football. And it cost them not only that one game, but also their most important goal: the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in Atlanta. Maybe even more. That was the one loss that separated us from going to SEC Championship, getting to play in the national championship, linebacker Michael Taylor said. Thats the one thing that stood in between us and all those goals. So we owe them some payback. Saturday will be interesting. Great rivalries have transcendent elements. For Florida-Georgia, it is crossing the Hart Bridge. Theres no question that when you come over that bridge, it charges you up, Muschamp as Floridas coach. I get goose bumps talking about it. Muschamp, who played at UGA from 1991 both teams. After growing up in Gainesville and rooting for the Gators, Muschamp and his family moved to Rome, Ga. A broken leg suffered during his senior year at Rome Darlington School deterred recruiters. He ended up walking on at Georgia, trading in his orange and blue for red and black. He just willed it in his mind that he was going to play for us, former Bulldogs defensive coordinator Richard Bell said. All those intangibles that are so necessary to have to take your talent to another level, he possessed. Muschamp endeared himself to the coaching staff through his hard work. Bell, who coached at Georgia from 1989 to 1993, used to tease Muschamp leading up to the rivalry game each season. I knew he had a Gator background, Bell said. I would kid him about, Whats going to happen? And he would say, Coach, Im a Dawg now. But the fun always ended once he crossed the Hart Bridge. Five times Muschamp has left Jacksonville a loser in the Florida-Georgia rivalry. He suffered a sixth loss when the Bulldogs fell to the Gators Muschamp said his two coaching losses sting more, but he didnt discount his younger selfs misery. None of it is fun, he said. Especially when the game doesnt break your way. Like 2012. And 1993. During Muschamps junior year, Georgia had a chance to upend Steve Spurrier and Florida. With Muschamp in the secondary, the Bullpassing yards on a rain-soaked day. It rained and rained and rained, Bell recalled. But on the strength of 183 rushing yards from Errict Rhett, Florida carried a 33-26 lead into the it was again a one-score game. Again, Georgia had a chance. Bulldogs quarterback Eric Zeier found Jerry Jerman in the end zone for what appeared to be the game-tying touchdown. But Gators cornerback Anthone Lott called a timeout just before the ball was snapped. Georgia ended up getting two more chances. Lott committed pass interference on the next play, and Zeiers last attempt fell incomplete, dealing Muschamp the third of four losses. All he could do was watch. We felt like we sure had a chance to win, Bell said. It depends on who you talk to, whether youre talking to a Georgia guy or a Florida gal on that timeout. It was a heck of a game, I know that. We had a heartbreaker from the year before in They were good; we were good. Two good ball games that we felt like we could have won. Unfortunately, we didnt. Thats this series. It continues to be as far as a rivalry is concerned. What was once known as the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is now the Worlds Largest Outdoor Pity Party. The injury bug has taken a toll on both the championship stakes and the NFL talent usually on display in the Florida-Georgia rivalry. For just the second time since 1979, both Florida and Georgia enter Saturdays game unranked. Each is also currently mired in a two-game losing streak and risks slipping out of contention in the SEC Eastern Division with another defeat. Injuries to players on either side of the rivalry have contributed to the sudden mediocrity. Gurley, who shredded Floridas defense as a freshman, missed three games this season after suffering a sprained ankle against LSU on Sept. 28. The Bulldogs lost two of the three games during his absence and had to escape with an overtime victory against Tennessee in the other. Malcolm Mitchell, Justin Scott-Wesley and Keith Marshall, three cogs in Georgias offense, are out for the season after each suffered ACL tears during the season. Were not feeling sorry for ourselves, Georgia coach Mark Richt said. I doubt Florida is feeling sorry for themselves. But the Gators have felt similar pain. Florida is without starting quarterback Jeff Driskel, who suffered a season-ending fracture done for the year is Matt Jones, who was UFs leading rusher when he suffered a torn meniscus against LSU on Oct. 12, and Dominique Easley, the anchor of the defensive line. In total, the starters, for the season. Its part of the game, Muschamp said. Injuries are a part of it. You strap up with who you have and you move forward. Muschamp has steadfastly refused the thought of one game being more important than the rest. I hate to give you the boring answer, he said, but I dont approach this one any different than the other ones. But for him to truly move forward while at Florida, beating Georgia is a critical step. His three predecessors Steve Spurrier, Ron Zook and Urban Meyer kept the rivalry on a short leash, going 18-3 against the Bulldogs from 1990-2010. Muschamp has been vocal about expecting to enjoy similar success. Its not going to be a long winning streak, I can assure you, he told reporters prior to a Gator Gathering at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds during the offseason. We feel very comfortable. less comfortable if another loss compounds an already disappointing season for the Gators. Georgia is always the biggest game of the year, no matter how good we are or how good they are, Trey Burton said. Even with SEC title implications on the back burner, the rivalry remains heated. In a battle between neighboring states, the close proximity keeps it that way. Michael Taylor wants to win this one for his mother, an Atlanta native. She told him, Yall have to beat them this year because I dont want to have to hear about it from supervisors, because all the supervisors went to Georgia. Taylor hopes to give his mother bragging rights at the water cooler. I have even more motivation to win this game, he said, so my mom aint got to hear about it for the next 365 days of the year. Muschamp has been on both sides of the rivalry. He knows how it feels as a Bulldog. He knows how it feels as a Gator. Now, he wants to know what it feels like as a winner. Its a critical game for us, obviously being a great rival with the University of Florida and a great rivalry game, Muschamp said. Its one of the best college football games, year in, year out, to be a part of.Ryan Jones / AlligatorWill Muschamp watches from the sideline during Floridas 17-6 loss to LSU on Oct. 12 in Baton Rouge, La.

KELCEE GRIFFIS and ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff WritersPunk rockers have descended upon Gainesville as they do this time every year, but Fest 12 comes with a few changes. Fest venues collectively raised the price of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer from $2 to $3. The same was true for venues during pre-Fest in Ybor City. Tony Weinbender, Fests organizer, said the hike wasnt an issue at pre-Fest. Nobody cares, he said. It seems that sentiment carried over to Gainesville, too. Lily Nelson, a 19-year-old UF psychology sophomore, said she thinks the price change wont shake things up too much. A lot of people drink PBR here, she said. But they will probably just pay for it anyway. Robbie Bersano, 25-year-old front house staff for the Blue Man Group, said the change in price doesnt affect him. Blasphemy, he said. Im from Chicago, so a $3 PBR in a 16-oz can is a steal. Its nice. Its part of the vacation. Its not necessarily about getting wasted. Its about hanging out with your friends. said that cheap beer is not the priority the music is.Fest 12 PBR price increases to $3SEE FEST, PAGE 4LOCAL REGINA SINAlligator Contributing WriterStudents traveling to Jacksonville for Florida-Georgia game festivities this weekend have several options for parking and resources for a safe Lauri-Ellen Smith, special assissaid underage drinking laws and open container laws will be strictly enforced.

Saudi women rebel from the drivers seatThere is a wonderful movie called Wadjda that traces the plight of a young girl determined to get her hands on a bicycle. Growing up in a patriarchal Saudi Arabia, Wadjda is confronted by oppressive gender roles and laws that prevent her from purchasing and riding a bike with her male friends. Members of the community and her family censure Wadjda for her ambitions. In Saudi Arabia, Wadjdas struggle is reality for every woman. Though there is no law prohibiting women from driving, women arent allowed to apply for drivers licenses in Saudi Arabia. Given the countrys nature of absolute monarchy, protests by men or women are often highly improbable, so the laws seem irreversible. Unbeknownst to many, however, a progressive revolution is unfolding in the birthplace of Islam. admirably assumed the most rebellious political position a woman can assume in Saudi Arabia: the drivers seat. The women then posted numerous videos of their like a small step, these courageous women may be igniting a progressive revolution in Saudi Arabia. Judy Bachrach, in an article for World Affairs Journal, argues the effects will be massive. She believes if women are granted the right to drive, they may commit adultery, attempt to get a divorce or even gasp enslaved people, a willingness to disobey everyday norms counts as progress. I employ the word enslaved because thats what half of the population is in Saudi Arabia: property. Without a male guardian, women are also forbidden from working, opening a bank account or traveling. The gender-based restrictions are clearly intended to keep power in the hands of the hereditary male leadership. is not invincible, and a number of countries and organizations have scrutinized the Canada, the U.K. and the Czech Republic all expressed concern about the human rights situation. Ironically, Saudi Arabia is expected to win a seat on the Human Rights Council next month. One can only hope that before this happens, the women of Saudi Arabia and the gay men and women who face beheading as punishment gain international attention for their courage. If not, then the burden rests on us. The United States is a staunch ally of the oil kingdom and therefore faces a moral obligation to foster the growth and well-being of that country in any way it can. Doing so will set a precedent and warn other ultraconservative hereditary regimes a North Korean family comes to mind that there are consequences for their actions. allies will give the women of Saudi Arabia a sense of support that their guardians have so willingly relinquished. scend Wadjdas dreams of the drivers seat and assume a long-deprived Senate seat.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 A couple of years ago, I was asked how I could be 20 years old and still be a virgin. The girl asking me this had found me through a mutual friend and had been asking me questions of this sort for a couple of days. She was a beautiful girl, and to say that I was not interested in her would be a colossal lie. But at the same time, I was hesitant to actually agree to sleep with her because I hadnt actually met her in person yet. And I felt ashamed of this hesitation. Not just ashamed, I felt humiliated, emasculated and worthless. I admit, it was completely irrational; theres no reason for me to have felt this way. Whether I have had sex or will have sex with someone is my business, and I had no obligation to sleep with this girl. But it still felt horrible making the decision to say no. Thats the sort of thing they dont really prepare you for when they teach you about consent and, for that matter, sexual assault. Its one thing to understand the statistics how you are much more likely to be assaulted by someone you know rather than a stranger. Its one thing to say no in a safe, almost clinical, environment of a seminar, but quite another to say no in the moment. Part of that problem is that a lot of the conversation appears to be centered on how a woman is supposed to say no. I feel like thats due to the particular societal expectations that are placed on men; expectations we generally dont think about. The saying goes something like, If a man sleeps with 10 women, hes a conqueror. If a woman sleeps with 10 men, shes a slut. Ignoring for the moment how misogynistic that statement is with regards to women, it doesnt exactly do that much for men either. Men are expected to be having sex or else want to have sex. If a man says hes been the inevitable question of What are you complaining about? The idea of a man being raped, particularly by a woman, sounds ridiculous. The statistics about sexual assault make it sound that much more ridiculous. Survivors of sexual assault and rape are overwhelmingly women, and the perpetrators are overwhelmingly men. However, given that rape and sexual assault are the two most underreported crimes, we dont know the true scope of how those crimes affect both genders. We can chalk that up to the fact that we happen to live in a society that shames the survivors of those crimes. Its a blame game that actually does translate across the gender gap, with women getting the insulting You were asking for it garbage and men getting the equally demeaning Whats the problem? reaction. The reason for that reaction to men is, I think, because of the presupposition that men have to be the dominant player with regards to sex. Men who do not want to have sex are seen as effeminate, emasculated, submissive or somehow defective. Its (usually) not something that is explicitly said, but its something that is constantly subconsciously pounded into our heads. And thats whats going through your mind when youre making the decision to turn down a sexual advance. The feeling that you should just be going for it because, why not? If a womans already hell-bent on sleeping with you, whats the problem? Youve already cleared the consent objection, at least from her end, so why not go for it? And if you say no? What does that say about you? Does it make you, somehow, a lesser man? Does it make you a prude in peoples eyes? Is there something wrong with you? What, exactly, do you say to your friends when they ask you So did you tap that? and you answer no. This is all rhetorical supposition, obviously. The answers to those questions are: Nothing, not at all, no, no and who cares what they think. But those are the sorts of things that go through your head when youre going through that situation. And thats not something that a seminar can prepare you for. Thats not something that a lesson to men on what consent means can teach you. Unfortunately, its one of those understand. So when you do experience it, and you start doubting yourself for turning down sex, dont. There is nothing wrong with just saying no. Caleb Hendrich is a writer for The Collegian.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013 STAFF REPORTA spinoff of last years Swamp Symphony, Gators Jazz & Blues Fest will be hosted from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday on Flavet Field. This music event features performances from UF students, faculty and local musicians. Funk Yard, Buttertones and the UF jazz band, among others, are set to swing. The theme changed to Gators Jazz & Blues Fest this year because the jazz scene in Gainesville has really been coming along, said Natalie Morrison, a coordinator of alumni affairs for the College of Fine Arts. Ben Kahn, director of the event, said the festival is a celebration of all UF has accomplished. STEVEN KATONAThe Hippodrome Cinemas four nights of horror will add some chilling cheer to the spookiest holiday. Until Saturday, the Hippodrome Cinema is presenting the most terrifying cinematic event of the seadirector Alisha Kinman said she podrome is putting on a Halloween event like this. Each night is a double feature screening with a theme. Admission is $5 a night and includes both movies. Saturdays Bloodsuckers! will close the Halloween movie fest with The Last Man on Earth at 8 p.m. and Lost Boys at 10 p.m. If this event goes well, Kinman, for every holiday. Growing up, movies were an event that all families went to and then had a conversation about after, Kinman said. I want to give families a chance to have that experience. ALYSSA FISHERThe International Tour of Historical Buddha Relics is presenting a public exhibit of ancient artifacts. The event will be held at the A Nan Buddhist Temple, at 2120 SE 15th St., and will begin with a ceremony at 6 p.m. The exhibit will remain on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. At the exhibit, people have the ability to be personally blessed by the sacred relics, which would be placed against the persons head while monks give a blessing. People are also encouraged to bring their pets to be blessed. In 2001, Buddhist master Lama Zopa Rinpoche began touring with the relics from Tibet. Michael Fouts, the marketing representative for the tour, said the Dalai Lama felt this tour was a must-see in the United States. Relics dont normally tour, he said. We have a hard time seeing them because usually they are enshrined in stupas in the East. BROOKE AUSTILLWeekend round-up: Blues fest, Hipp horror shows, Buddhist relics

14, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013 CROSS COUNTRY JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126With the Southeastern Conference Championships taking place on the Mark Bostick Golf Course today, the Gators are working to make sure the trophies stay in Gainesville. The women aim to win their fourth SEC Championship in since 1987. At SECs, we have some of the top athletes in the nation, so its obviously going to be a very fast race, senior Mark Parrish said. Its going to take a lot of endurance, but then at the same time, its probably going to be somewhat tactical when it comes down to the last few kilometers, so you really have to respond to some of the moves. The Gators already competed on their home course once this season at the Mountain Dew Invitational on Sept. 14 under the same conditions they will be racing today an 8K for the men and a 6K for the women. This gave UFs freshmen a glimpse of SEC competition and a preview to the intensity of the track. sore after the meet. It was my Miranda said. So, I think with this being my third 8K, Ill be more adjusted to it and be able to perform well out there. The men at the Mountain Dew Invitational, topping three other SEC teams secondplace Auburn, third-place Tennessee and eighth-place LSU that competed at the meet. Parrish and junior Jimmy Clark runners place in the top 20. The women, who were without seniors Shelby Hayes and Stephanie Strasser and redshirt junior Cory McGee, at the home meet, losing to Tennessee and Auburn while topping South Carolina and LSU. Redshirt senior Agata of 270 runners with a time of 20:51.06. Hayes and McGee have since returned to the lineup, but Strasser will sit out her fourth consecutive race while she tends to a hamstring injury. After having two weeks to prepare, coach Paul Spangler feels the teams are ready, but he acknowledged that there would be stiff competition. If we all run well, if our top a good job, well put ourselves ond, Spangler said. about their ability and feel that having the SEC Championships on their home course for them an added boost. It feels really good to be at the golf course, junior Eddie Garcia said. We practice on it a few times during the week. We know the course pretty well. Added Strausa: I think its more of a motivator.

Florida secured a 5-1 victory over Georgia in Athens, Ga., on Thursday night and won a share of the Southeastern Conference regular season title with Texas A&M. The title is the 13th in the programs 18-year history. We had a little adversity in the beginning of this game, but the team managed to battle through that, Burleigh said. It was good for us to show some relentlessness in this game. Sophomore center back Christen Westphal tested her skills offensively, scoring the most unusual goal of the night in the 15th minute. Westphal took a free kick for Florida (15-3-1, 9-2 SEC) and caught Georgia goalkeeper Caitlin Woody out of the goal. The center back shot the ball over Woodys head and into the back of the net from 45 yards out. career. She got that ball in the right place, ball we call it the corridor of the decision when you put the ball there. The keeper has to decided whether to come or not, and its not always easy. Florida went more goals in the two coming from freshman forward and SEC Offensive Player of the Week Savannah Jordan. Jordan now has 20 goals this season the most in a season by a Florida player since Abby Wambach scored 31 goals in 2001. clinched her seventh goal of the season, taking a touch on the ball in Georgias attacking third and sinking it into an open net. Georgias (12-6-1, 5-5-1 SEC) attack came out more dangerous in the seceline Barker scoring the Bulldogs only goal into the upper ninety around the 50th minute. The Gators could not resist going goal of the night off a penalty kick in the 65th minute. I think a lot of people counted us out about a month ago, Burleigh said, The team preserved.

ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer @alichtenstein24As the Gainesville weather cools and the season begins to change, the Gators are in the midst of their own change at running back. When Kelvin Taylor starts for Florida against Georgia in Jacksonville on Saturday, he will be UFs third starting tailback this season. Coach Will Muschamp and his staff hope he will be the last. Hes continued to improve throughout the season, week to week, Muschamp said. Hes always been a very instinctive, natural runner. Its very obvious I think hes done a nice job and deserves the opportunity. It has taken only two months for the freshman from Glades Day School to get that opportunity. Taylor was not supposed to start this season. Sophomore Matt Jones, who performed admirably in a backup role last season, was the projected starter. However, Jones suffered a viral infection before fall practice began, missing camp and UFs season opener. Redshirt junior Mack Brown got the start in Jones place. Tayin late in Floridas win against Toledo. Muschamp said after the season opener that he was excited to see Taylors progression, but the freshman needed to work on other aspects of his game in order Extenuating circumstances forced Muschamps hand. Jones returned in Floridas (43, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) second game of the season but struggled during his time on the Outside of a breakout 176-yard performance on the road against Kentucky, he averaged 3.2 yards per carry. The sophomore got off to a promising start against LSU on Oct. 12 before suffering a torn meniscus, which ended his season. Brown has also had trouble moving the ball, averaging 3.6 yards per carry on 99 rushing attempts this season. We have a hard time running it and certainly cant protect very well, Muschamp said after Floridas loss to Missouri on Oct. 19. But Taylor is expected to boost the Gators offense. He scored Floridas lone offensive touchdown against Missouri and has averaged more than 6 yards per rush on 28 carries. However, his solid offensive performance did not come without controversy. After scoring, Taylor received only one more carry the rest of the game. Looking back on it, when Kelvin came on, he kind of got Brent Pease said. Sometimes he wasnt in there, and he probably should have because he got us going again. With his solid performance against Missouri and Pease looking to simplify the offense before the Gators matchup with the Bulldogs (4-3, 3-2 SEC), Taylor will likely bear the brunt of the offensive load on Saturday in Jacksonville. The freshman has shown the ability to make quick cuts and break off explosive plays something Florida has lacked all season. Five of Taylors 12 runs went for 5 yards or more against Mizzou. The rest of the team combined for three rushes that long against the stout Tigers defense. level, Pease said. Hes become physical. Hes had great ball security. I think even starting to see and get better at the big picture within the passing game of everything also. come at a more critical time. The Gators are on the brink of elimination in the SEC Eastern Division. Florida already needs assistance to reach the conference title game. Another loss would end its season. But the pressure is not getting to the freshman. Said Pease: He wants to go. 3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffKelvin Taylor runs the football during Floridas 36-17 loss to Missouri on Oct. 19 at Faurot Field in Freshman tailback expected to make first career start Hes always been a very instinctive, natural runner.
