MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 LIFESTYLE REBECCA TURKELAlligator Contributing WriterRecent alerts of a looming wine shortage arent making Gainesville residents put away their wine glasses quite yet. A report released by Morgan Stanley Research last week showed an upcoming undersupply of about 300 million cases of wine, CNN reported. The shortage could be attributed to higher demand, poor growing conditions and a decrease in vineyards, USA Today reported. But Nigel Smith, a UF professor who teaches Geography of Alcohol, doesnt think theres going to be a wine shortage. Its just going to shift the regions that didnt grow grapes before, he said. Smith said the industry used to be dominated by France and the Mediterranean region. Now, he said, Chile, Argentina, California, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand are all big producers. I dont see any major impacts in terms of prices and supply, he said. Bunky Mastin, co-owner of local The Wine and Cheese Gallery, is not worried about the projected shortage yet. The shortage wont be an issue now but might be down the road, Mastin said. He said there are many different sources around the world to get stock from. Its not a problem because theres so many wines out there, Mastin said. If we had serious droughts, then maybe it would be a problem. Every year, there are problems, sometimes oversupplies when grapes are plentiful, and sometimes shortages due to droughts or heavy rain, he said. The gallery wont change to alternative beverages anytime soon. Were a wine store, Mastin said. Corrine Bullock, a 21-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior, is a fan of penny wine at Beef O Bradys. If the price went up, people would probably be less likely to go, she said. A wine shortage would most likely end penny wine as we know it, she said.Locals show little concern about wine shortage Nov. 7, 1977 A City Commission group proposed making pornography shops spread throughout the city, rather than being clustered in one area. Gainesvilles Human Resources and Services Committee based its opinion off of knowledge of Bostons and Hollywoods issues with similar situations. The members, however, didnt want to try to determs, so they wouldnt be limited in restrictions. Nov. 4, 1987 Crop dusters took on a hitmen. Pesticides sprayed to control mosquitos were linked to the dwindling numbers of Schaus Swallowtails, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service asked a UF zoologist to investigate the species populations. He only found Largo, which used to have a population of 70. Nov. 7, 1994 A UF freshman learned why windows in Las Vegas dont open. In an attempt to get a better view of an outdoor movie playing at a nearby building, she jumped from her dorm window down onto a 4-foot ledge below. Unable to stop her fall, she fell off that ledge and down four stories to the ground, narrowly missing a tree in the process. Police involved. Nov. 4, 2009 Santa Fe College said no to saying no. Despite student senators all agreeing smoking was a problem for their campus, they voted down a motion to create a campuswide ban, which would follow UFs lead. The reasoning behind the decision was smokers would congregate in parking lots, which would lead to more accidents. However, student senators did agree to provide better enforcement to the existing smoking restrictions, such as smoking only in designated smoking huts.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5Ryan D. Jones / AlligatorSweet Jamgrass CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff Writercalcantara@alligator.orgIn a Broward County courtroom on Dec. 21, Seth Penalver sat quietly next to his lawyer, waiting to hear the jurys verdict for a 1994 triple murder he claimed he didnt commit. After 18 years behind bars six of which he spent on death row and three trials, he got his answer: not guilty on all charges. He wept into his hands as his lawyers embraced him. He kneeled in front of his seat and prayed. From that day on, he was a free man. Almost a year since his release, Penalver, 40, said he still remembers the feeling of being acquitted in a case that became well-known in Broward County. It was surreal, he said. Penalver spoke about his exoneration to about 50 people Saturday inside the St. Augustine Church and Catholic Student Center in Gainesville. Herman Lindsey, a 40-year-old Broward County resident who was acquitted of a 12-year-old murder case in 2009, also talked about his experience. Gainesville Citizens for Alternatives to the Death Penalty partnered with Witness to Innocence to bring Penalver and Lindsey to Gainesville. Theres a lot of people who dont follow the issue of the death penalty, said GCADP co-coordinator Miriam Elliott. They certainly dont know how many (death row inmates) have been exonerated in Florida. They dont know the stories behind them. Since 1973, Florida has exonerated 24 death row inmates the highest in the United States. Death row inmates can have their convictions overturned if they show legal error or new evidence that supports their innocence. This can include government misconduct, such as state prosecutors withholding evidence during trial, eyewitness error or DNA analysis. Lindsey and Penalver were Floridas most recent exonerated cases. In 2006, the Florida Supreme Court granted Penalver a retrial after he was sentenced to death in 1999 for the murders of a Miramar club owner and two women. One of the justices rulings said the quality of security footage shot inside the club owners house during the murder was so poor that they couldnt determine if Penalver was the gunman. That same year, Lindsey was convicted for a 1994 murder of a Ft. Lauderdale pawnshop owner. The justices, however, later voted to overturn Lindseys death sentence conviction, saying state prosecutors didnt have enough evidence to prove he shot and killed the owner. Richard C. Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, D.C., said with 80 people executed in Florida since 1979, one person is exonerated for every three executions. Thats a terrible ratio, he said. That means theres far too many mistakes being made. With the recent passing of the Timely Justice Act, which will speed up death penalty sentences limiting the time innocent inmates have to appeal their cases, Penalver and Lindsey said the death penalty in Florida should be abolished. The system is wrong, Penalver said. If you get it wrong one time, thats all it takes. While Lindsey and Penalver now live as free men, they say life as exonerees has been with murder charges attached to their records. Theyre also not eligible for state compensation because of prior felony convictions. We still live in a death sentence, Lindsey said. Penalver said hes decided not to let his time in prison affect the rest of his life. I gotta let it go, he said. I dont know how much time I have left, but I want to go out and enjoy it.Former death row inmates talk about experiences, exonerationNATIONAL CHIP LOWEAlligator Contributing WriterI Boobies! bracelets may soon be the center of a U.S. Supreme Court case as a school district in Pennsylvania plans to appeal a federal courts ruling that has allowed the bracelets in schools. But some Gainesville residents say the thick plastic bands arent a big deal, especially because the phrase is advocating a good cause. Lindy Brounley, communications director for the UF Health Cancer Center, said that any kind of health education or awareness project is positive. She said women between the ages of 40 and 70 need to get annual mammograms to help detect cancer early, and any campaigns that encourage that are benThe bracelets are put out by Keep A Breast Foundation, which promotes prevention and early detection. Emily King, a 19-year-old Santa Fe elementary education sophomore, said she is well aware of the offensive. Breast cancer is a serious problem, and we cant just sweep it under the rug because it might be uncomfortable to talk about, she said. King said the bracelets send a message similar to the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that shes participated in locally. Just like how the walk provides a great opportunity for survivors to get together, the bracelets provide a way to start a conversation with someone that may ask you about what youre wearing, she said. Christian Gonzalez, a 20-yearold UF political science sophomore, rights extend to the bracelets because they are not derogatory. If it had any explicit words or images, I would consider it inappropriate, he said. But the bracelets are just a relaxed approach to a powerful meaning. Gonzalez said he doesnt see the issue going as far as the U.S. Supreme Court. I think it is pretty clear here that if the bracelets dont disrupt the education environment, kids should be able to wear them, he said. Unless they are going to ban bracelets all together, then I think these Pennsylvania students will be able to proudly wear their support for breast cancer.'Boobies' bracelets could go to court CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff Writercalcantara@alligator.orgA 45-year-old Callahan man died Friday morning after he was thrown from his SUV during a rollover crash two miles northwest of Waldo. Timothy Wayne Spruiell was headed east on County Road 225 at 12:20 a.m., when he tried to make a sharp right turn and lost control of his 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche, according to a Florida Highway Patrol crash report. The SUV veered off the road onto a grassy shoulder, and while Spruiell tried to correct the vehicle by steering to the right, it overturned and rolled over several times along the roadway. Spruiell, who did not wear a seatbelt, was ejected from the SUV. When troopers arrived, they pronounced Spruiell dead at the scene. They also determined he was driving more than 60 mph in a 55 mph speed zone. FHP spokeswoman Tracy Hisler-Pace said Saturday that the Alachua County Medical an autopsy to see if Spruiell was intoxicated at the time of the crash. No one else was injured. A 39-year-old Gainesville woman was arrested Friday morning after she allegedly attacked her 70-year-old mother. Crystal Marie Ross was charged with battery on an elderly person, according to a Gainesville Police arrest report. At about 4 a.m. Friday, Ross punched her mother in the chest during an argument. She also pulled her mothers hair and tried to choke her, police said. the Alachua County Jail, where she remained Sunday night in lieu of $50,000 bond.

Kelly asked if Warren had any drugs on him. He refused to answer and started to make a chewing motion with his mouth, according to the report. Kelly ordered Warren to open his mouth and found a juana in it. Warren said he ate the marijuana cigarette because he got scared when police pulled the car over.

Call 352-376-4458.American apathy toward drone strikes is appallingPresident Barack Obamas use of drone strikes abroad is a polarizing debate, and the legality and secrecy of the strikes is often called into question by lawmakers. The publics top concern over the strikes, according to the Pew Research Center, is the potential endangerment of civilians lives. lawmakers met with survivors of a drone attack was met with disappointing coverage in the media. What was even more disappointing, however, was the lack of turnout by members of two children presented a harrowing account of a U.S. drone attack that killed Rehmans mother and injured the two children in a remote tribal region of Pakistan last October. news center, Nobody has ever told me why my mother was Obama last week. The media reported that the attack was on a car, but there is no road alongside my mothers house. Several reported the attack was on a house. But the missiles hit a nearby Only one person was killed a 65-year-old grandmother of nine. But the United States and its citizens probably do not know injured that day. Not the United States or my own government. Nobody has come to investigate nor has anyone been held accountable. He concluded, Quite simply, nobody seems to care. Rehmans 13-year-old son, Zubair, gave a heartbreaking statement. I no longer love blue skies, he said. In fact, I now prefer The familys testimony reportedly caused the translator to break down in tears during the hearing. Outside of The Guardian, The New Yorker and Al Jazeera America, the hearing has received little attention from American to the Rehmans gut-wrenching testimony: Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), who called the hearing, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Rep. Janice Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.) and Rep. Rick Nolan (D-Minn.). Americans especially lawmakers and the media seem to be content with inaction. Aside from grassroots protests, the drone strikes seem to be met with collective apathy. Holocaust survivor and professor Elie Wiesel said, We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. The drone problem is no longer rooted simply in politics. Civilian lives are endangered, and attacks such as the one on Rehmans family, with no rhyme or reason, prove that power is going unchecked within the federal government. Writers should be compensated for workEveryone knows the world we live in is increasingly centered on technology its invention, design, construction, marketing and most importantly its use. Science, technology, engineering and math careers abound and STEM-major students receive incentives for choosing more worthwhile tracks. Such a society deWithout a doubt, STEM majors are treated with more that falls under the umbrella of liberal arts. Unfortunately, this sentiment is beginning to extend beyond the university. The attitude that humanities disciplines are of lesser value has become all the more prevalent in the working world were trying to enter. How are the humanities devalued in the real world? We could try to count the ways, but this column has a maximum word count. However, the best representative of this is described in Slaves of the Internet, Unite!, an article by New York Times contributor Tim Kreider. Kreider explains that, even after graduation, much of a writers work is done for free. He is regularly asked to contribute to other publications as well with no reimbursement, and with The New York Times on his resume, thats a little shocking. It makes sense for undergraduates to take unpaid internships and submit to papers, magazines and websites for no money to build their portfolios. Between the published sample and the exposure, submitting for free is contributor copies is perfectly acceptable pre-graduation. Accepting anything less than actual money later on is detrimental to societys perception of the value of good writing, art, music and more. Maybe the artsy folk are asked to produce for free because they would produce with or without being propositioned. After all, they chose to follow a passion as a career. This is a scary thought process because it implies STEM folks feel no connection to their profession, which is completely false. Even worse, it conveys to those with talent in the humanities that there is no reward in cultivating it, that no amount of prowess will be rewarded in the ways it should. theyre being asked to contribute? Yes and no, because while their work may have been chosen above that of others, apparently its still not worth paying a penny for. As online publishing gains traction, its getting even harder for writers to make their work and it is work seem tangible enough to deserve pay. Once a degree hangs securely on the wall, solicit opinions on your portfolio and resume from professionals in stop accepting zilch for your work. That goes for you too, artists, photographers and musicians. their craft has no value and validate a clients decision to withhold any tangible reimbursement, even though writor her work has no value, that message will be applied to every writer, artist and so on in the future. If we can collectively agree that what we do has merit and assert that in all of our business interactions, maybe others will treat us as though that is the case. Until then, start drafting your rejection emails to all the jerkholes who think your material isnt worth commissioning the right way. Rest assured theyd never ask for a free haircut, and feel free to point that out to them. Katie McPherson is a UF English junior.

See story, page 13.FarewellThe alligatorSports crew would like to extend our best wishes to Amanda Brooks, who is leaving the UAA to work for USA Track and Field. Congratulations!Poll QuestionWill the Gators become bowl eligible this season? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. JACKSONVILLE Could it have gone any worse? Florida falls behind early only to knock on victorys door, have it swing open and smack it in the face. If Saturday ended at halftime, this column wouldve been a rip job on a splintered Gators team. A team that looked like it didnt want to play. A team that looked down, dejected and disinterested in a game that could save its season for another week. Instead, this is a rallying cry an open letter to Florida fans Leon Orr and a leaping Mack Brown to wake the Gators up, but they still need your support. That support appeared to be dwindling for the nations 110th-ranked offense and a defense that headed into Saturday more porous than Swiss cheese. A fan donning an orange shirt, sitting on the Florida side of Muschamp the bird when he walked into the tunnel following the game. Florida students were more concerned about heading to Tallahassee for a top-10 matchup and the Rivalry Music Festival. Theres good reason to give up. The personal fouls get old. The negative offensive plays get old. The losses are old. Signing two offensive linemen in the 2011 and 2012 classes has left Florida thin at the position where it can least afford to be. Going from Spurriers offense, to Urbans Tebow-led offense, to an offensive offense has made Florida a social-media punch line on game day. An unexpected 83-yard pass play to Quinton Dunbar on Saturday led to no points as Francisco Velez missed a 40-yard After eight games, a better question for these Gators could Still, redshirt junior Mack Brown said it best following the of every players mouth, including his, the running back had this to say: PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer@phillip_heilmanJACKSONVILLE You wont game than the one Todd Gurley enjoyed Saturday. Led by the sophomore tailbacks raced out to a quick lead and held on late to earn a 23-20 victory at EverBank Field. Georgia coach Mark Richt said. It couldve turned bad, but we got some big stops on defense, and the During the Bulldogs opening drive, Gurley showed no effects of the sprained ankle that kept him sidelined the past three games. On the second play from scrimmage, he caught a pass from quarterback Aaron Murray and gained handoff of the game went for a bruising 25 yards. play, barreling into the end zone for Ryan Jones / AlligatorGeorgia quarterback Aaron Murray (11) hands off the football to running back Todd Gurley (3) during Floridas ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24JACKSONVILLE Florida got the third-down stop it needed with time running out in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Gators, defensive lineman to Bulldogs running back Todd Gurleys face. The personal foul cost UF the stop and, ultimately, the game. Florida (4-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) racked ed penalties in its 23-20 loss to Georgia (5-3, 4-2 SEC) on Saturday at EverBank Field. offsetting personal foul calls, that number could have been even worse. But penalties are nothing new to the Gators. They have more penalty yards than any other team in the conference the past two seasons. penalties 20 out of 24 years, Muschamp said. It was long and showed no signs of stopping. A UF defensive lineman jumped offside during UGAs declined the penalty. The penalties continued when the Gators got the ball. Defensive back Brian gal block on the kickoff, but his was not the most costly penalty of the drive. Referees called a personal foul on receiver Solomon Patton on a 2-yard rush by Kelvin Taylor on third down.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 13Kan Li / Alligator StaffJacob Kurtz attempts a basket during Floridas 110-88 victory against Florida Southern in an exhibition game on Friday in the OConnell Center. Kurtz, who is a walk-on, scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting and recorded nine rebounds. MENsS BaskASKETBallALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer@jczuprynWith an offseason plagued by injuries and suspensions, coach Billy Donovan has had tice: Kasey Hill, DeVon Walker, Casey Prather, Patric Young and Jacob Kurtz. So when it came time to announce the starters for Friday nights exhibition game against Florida Southern, Donovan decided to reward walk-on and formerly served as the teams manager. The junior had never earned a start for Florida in either a regular season or exhibition game. But without Damontre Harris and Dorian Finney-Smith, who were both suspended Thursday for violating team rules, Donovan needed another player. Kurtz showed he could become a viable option even when the suspended players return, scoring 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting and recording nine rebounds, tying Will Yeguete for the team lead, during Floridas 110-88 victory. What you saw out there (Friday), I see every day in practice, Donovan said. I think he can really help us. Hes a really smart player. I think he deserved and earned the opportunity to start. Hill, who started at point guard in place of the suspended Scottie Wilbekin, also made the most of his opportunity. The former McDonalds All-American points on 6-of-9 shooting. However, Hill added only three free throws in the second half while missing his next four shots from the The point guards three turnovers were too many while his three assists were too few, Donovan said after the game. But Floridas coach added that was to be expected from a freshman point guard. I thought he showed some really great Donovan said. Obviously hes a freshman. Hes going to have some growing pains (and) some ups and downs. He had some turnovers. He didnt have a high number of assists, but showed. Hill said the easiest part of the game was attacking the basket. Five of his six scores were layups, and three of those shots came on fast breaks. But after one game, the freshman said he needs to work on holding onto the ball. Those turnovers were very important turnovers, he said. I cant turn the ball over like that and be careless and sloppy with the Prather, who has averaged 3.1 points per game during his three years with the Gators, led all players with 23 points, seven assists and four steals. In the 2012-13 season, Prather averaged only one assist and fewer than one steal per game, but he surpassed those numever Hill was on the bench. After failing to average even one point or rebound per game last year as a freshman, DeVon Walker recorded 11 points and eight rebounds against Florida Southern. But Donovan seemed most impressed with Young, who not only gave the Gators 19 points and eight rebounds, but also showed he had the conditioning to move up and down the court without problem. I thought Patric had a really good motor (Friday), Donovan said. I thought he was very aggressive. I thought he came out passionate. We need that kind of consistency out of him really every game. Thats the expectation I would have for Patric.Walk-on takes advantage of opportunity in exhibition win RJ SCHAFFER Alligator Writer @rjschafferIt took one lucky bounce for the Gators to maintain their Southeastern Conference title aspirations in College Station, Texas. A service ace by junior libero Taylor Unroe that hit the tape on the top of the net gave No. 5 Florida a win in the against Texas A&M. We rode [Unroes] serve today, coach Mary Wise said. I dont think any Texas A&M fan would want her to be going back to serve down there with the score tied and match point on the line. She stepped up big. The Aggies had multiple chances to put the match away, including a 14-13 Gators rallied for three straight points to claim the victory. Winning the match was critical for Florida, which remains in the hunt for a record 20th SEC regular season title. No. 7 Missouri swept No. 19 Kentucky on Sunday to stay undefeated and atop the conference. Needing a win, the Gators turned to Chloe Mann, who had one of the most dominating performances of her career. The redshirt senior middle blocker recorded a career-high 22 kills to go along with her team-leading .606 hitting percentage. Freshman outside hitter Alex Holston was also helpful for the Gators, setting a career high with 21 kills on a .459 hitting percentage. [Mann and Holston] were just terterms of, you know, theyre all over everyones scouting report and how hard they work to get those kills, Wise said. Those were not easy kills. That hitting combination saved Florida from disaster as the rest of the offense struggled against Texas A&M. Sophomore outside hitters Gabby Mallette and Ziva Recek had 10 kills each, but neither hit better than .133. Florida has a week off before three straight home matches, beginning with South Carolina on Nov. 13. CROssSS COUNTRY JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126Agata Strausas consistent improvement during 2013 was one of the reasons the Gators looked poised to live up to their predicted secChampionships on Friday. After leading Florida in the three of her races prior to the SEC Championships, the redshirt senior did not disappoint. She kept up with the lead group for the ening a career-best time of 20:17.79 the seventh fastest 6K on the Mark Bostick Golf Course and 33.27 seconds faster than her time on Floridas home course earlier this year. The three runners Strausa fell to individually Dominique Scott, Shannon Klenke and which won the meet. Shes looked great in practice since Wisconsin, and weve felt like she was ready to contend for the title, coach Paul Spangler said. She put herself in a position and with 400 [meters] to go, it was whoever had the best foot speed, and against three very, very talented girls, Im very proud of her. Despite Strausas performance, which reof the Gators could not keep up with the comshowing in the SEC Championships since 2007. strong, Strausa said. We tried to stick with the front pack, but it went out pretty fast faster than expected. Strausa was the only Florida runner to crack the top 15 at the meet. Cory McGee, who was the second Gator to in 16th place with a time of 21:01.16. We just need to be tougher, Strausa said. We just need to approach the next race as if we have never lost before, race like champions and leave this behind on the golf course. her last home cross country race as a Gator and used that as motivation. But Strausa said the team has a different source of motivation as it prepares for the NCAA Regional Championship, one that came from watching Arkansas chant pig sooie on their home course after sweeping the individual awards. It makes us hungry, she said. It makes us want to be better. It makes us more angry than it hurts. Its great training fuel.Strausa shines at SEC meet UF Volleyball Strausa

As it turned out, he was just getting started. by the Gators on their opening drive, the Bulldogs started their second possession from the UGA 23-yard line. Following an incompletion and a 4-yard rush, Georgia faced third and 6. Thats when Gurley came through again. With Florida (4-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) blitzing, Murray checked down over the middle to his tailback, who suddenly found himself in open space. He sprinted past safety Cody Riggs and outran cornerback Marcus Roberson to go 73 yards for his second touchdown a little more than He helped a little bit, didnt he? Richt joked. He played ries. Antonio Morrison was responsible for covering Gurley on his receiving touchdown but was caught too close to the line and was unable to recover in time to prevent a completion or We got what we wanted and we missed it, coach Will Muschamp said. Uncharacteristic mistakes plagued Floridas defense during the game especially in Georgia (5-3, 4-2 SEC) totaled 335 yards of offense prior to halftime more yards than the Gators have allowed in six games this season. Weve certainly been inconsistent, Muschamp said. Thats the frustrating part for me right now. Floridas defense stabilized after halftime Georgia gained only 79 yards in the second half ended the game and likely any chance the Gators had of earning a trip to the SEC Championship Game. After Floridas offense scored 17 consecutive points to pull within 23-20, Georgia gained possession with 8:17 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs never gave back the football.

Our coaches taught us better. Were not going to quit. of the season. Florida eventually showed some bite. Muschamp tried explaining where the Gators surrendered 259 total yards to the Bulldogs. It sounded like coach jargon. A better explanation is they just sucked. Florida fans have a right to be upset. It gets tiring watching a struggling defense and a bad Big Ten offense in the Southeastern Conference every week. To the guy in the orange shirt: You got your moneys worth on Saturday. That was a hell of a second half by a Gators team that got embarrassed through two quarters. To University of Florida students: Be happy youre attending a big-time SEC school where football weekends are the best weekends. Sure, this coaching regime is 2212 and 4-5 versus Georgia, Florida State, Miami and Tennessee, which are four teams Meyer went 17-2 against. Yet, Muschamp walked into the interview room at EverBank Field stern and disappointed with his family among the media despite the that were asked, and the coach that stood at perhaps his lowest professional point in three years. Thats what you do. Sometimes but one thing remains. Family sticks together. against Bulldogs linebackers Amarlo Herrera and Jordan Jenkins, as well as Florida linemen Trenton Brown and Jon Harrison. Penalties cost the Gators again in the fourth quarter. Georgia attempted to run the ball for Florida stopped. After the play, linebacker Neiron Ball took off his helmet, resulting in a personal foul that pushed the Gators back 15 yards before their drive even started. It ended in a punt. Thats all a judgment call, Muschamp said. UF accumulated 13 penalties throughlike conduct penalties and two personal fouls. Despite all the penalties earlier in the game, the last one broke Floridas back. Before the game was over, the Bulldogs offsetting unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Its hard to see some of that, so whatever they call, they call, Muschamp said. Offensive line protects: After giving up 10 sacks in its previous two games, Floridas offensive line got off to a strong start in Jacksonville. The unit surrendered Georgia but four overall. They stepped up today, Murphy said. They took it upon themselves to do better. So they did a good job and gave me a lot of time in the pocket. during practice leading up to the game due to injury and poor performance. Redshirt sophomore Tyler Moore shifted from right tackle to left tackle due to sophomore D.J. Humphries (knee) suffering an injury during practice. Brown took over for Moore at right tackle. Muschamp said he expects to leave the line the way it is for the foreseeable future. I thought we blocked well, he said. I thought we got a hat on a hat. Kickers struggle: The Gators attempted Saturday but made only one. Velez, playing in only his third career game, missed one of his two tries. The redshirt junior missed a 40-yard attempt in in second to put the Gators on the board. Austin Hardin, UFs designated long We need to get points out of the drive, Muschamp said. We just got to convert those situations. Florida has had a rough time replacing former kicker Caleb Sturgis, who made 24 rently plays for the Miami Dolphins.

On the next play, Loucheiz Purifoy sacked Murray in the end zone for a safety. Florida rode the momentum of its third quarter turnaround to an early fourth-quarter touchdown courtesy of Murphys legs.

Gurley managed only 36 yards on We knew that he was their main weapon, Florida linebacker Michael Taylor said. We knew they were going to go to him, so we keyed in on him.
