TAYLOR JUNCKAlligator Contributing WriterThe UF Health Shands Childrens Hospital has been ranked among the nations best childrens hospitals this year, according to a new U.S. News & World Report list. The annual report of pediatric centers was released Tuesday and evaluated 116 hospitals. The hospitals were then ranked in 10 specialty areas, and the top 50 hospitals with the highest scores were listed in each of these specialties. Shands Childrens Hospital was ranked among the top 50 in seven of the 10 specialty areas. These rankings speak to the prominence that the University of Florida has nationally, said Dr. Scott Rivkees, chairman of the department of pediatrics in the UF College of Medicine. It shows that how we are continuing to excel and improve in this very important part of the UF mission, he said. The hospitals rankings are especially impressive as it is a relatively small program compared with the larger hospitals listed on the report, he said. Theres no other program in the United States of our size that has ranked as high as we did across the board, he said. The hospital was ranked No. 14 in diabetes and endocrinology, No. 27 in cardiology and heart surgery, No. 34 in gastroenterology, No. 35 in pulmonology, No. 36 in neonatology, No. 41 in cancer and No. 41 in nephrology.

Reinhart said there are currently four entry points but none of them are distinct. She said the funding will give the center a more modernized look. But not all changes are cosmetic.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed on Wednesday with the American Civil Liberties Union that the cellphone data is protected by the Constitutions ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. The ruling means authorities must meet a higher legal standard of probable cause in order to gain access to the data. The ruling came in the Miami case of Quartavious Davis, who is serving a 162year sentence for a string of armed robberies.

Mark Amox, the executive director for UF Health Shands Childrens Hospital, attributes this jump in rankings to the hospitals awareness of and dedication to areas that need improvement. The key for us is that we recognize that this is a journey. Its an evolution, Amox said. Our goal is to continue to move forward and to continue to set the bar higher and higher every year. Kerry Caputo, a 21-year-old UF biology senior, works as a student volunteer at Shands through the Streetlight program, which partners volunteers with chronically ill teenage patients. Caputo cites the excellent personal care and compassion of the staff and volunteers as one of the reasons the hospital has achieved these national rankings. Like a sports team victory, these new rankings offer the UF community another reason to celebrate its school. Its another source of pride, Caputo said. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2014 HE HAD 14 GRAMS OF WEED.

Rout, 45, examines a computer-guided router as it cuts pieces of acrylic to use as parts for a homemade 3-D printer at Gainesville Hackerspace on Tuesday. CLAUDIA STANTZYK-GUZEKAlligator Contributing WriterAn activist group is trying to push the Princeton Review to include information on sexual assault in its rankings, but members of the UF community disagree. The activist group, UltraViolet, is asking the Princeton Review to survey students about how their schools are dealing with sexual violence on campus, according to the groups website. The Princeton Review is simply not equipped to take on the task accurately, said Rita Lawrence, an interpersonal violence prevention coordinator for GatorWell Health Promotion Services. The way that they do surveys, they send it out, and the responses they get on average is 333. Is it reliable to say that 333 people are representative of a campus of 50,000? The fear is that students may also use these rankings to avoid schools with poor rankings in the hopes of avoiding sexual violence, rather than informing themselves about the pervasive nature of sexual violence, Lawrence said. Consistency is another concern, said Associate Dean of Students Chris Loschiavo. His concerns stem from questions about how the Princeton Review would make sure the surveys would fairly compare a variety of factors among universities, such as campus size and resources. Unless they come up with a fair system of being able to then evaluate the rankings, I dont know that its going to make a lot of sense, Loschiavo said. Youre not comparing apples to apples. While the consensus is the Princeton Review may not be the proper avenue for these requests to have the desired impact, Diamond Delancy, a 19-year-old UF public relations junior and president of the Womens Student Association, believes that the the increased dialogue about ending sexual violence. It may seem radical, but its been a long time coming, said Delancy, who herself was a victim of sexual assault. I think theyre doing what they think is best, and theyre question thats been ignored for a really long time, she said.Sexual assault ranks dont make the listLOCAL REBECCA KRAVETZAlligator WriterGainesville 3-D tech startup Paracosm won second place and $50,000 at this years CAT5 Awards Competition in Orlando.

Clearing the air: Mondays coitus interruptus columnOn Monday, the Alligator ran a column titled Pull and pray: Yay or Nay? singing the praises of the pull-out birth control method. We realize that the piece didnt emphasize a few key pieces of information: That, like all birth control, the pull-out method isnt for everyone, and furthermore, the study quoted in the article stipulated that the pullout method should be used in conjunction with other forms of birth control. However, that doesnt mean the pull-out method is bad: It all depends on who is using it. isnt about the act itself: Its about whos doing it. And like all birth control methods, you should consult your doctor or a Planned Parenthood consultant before trying it. Students can also schedule a free consultation at the UF Student Health Care Center. The pull-out method is most effective for couples in a committed relationship, and its also best used concurrently with other forms of birth control. The Guttmacher Institute study stated, One-third of women at risk of unintended pregnancy used withdrawal as a contraceptive method within the past 30 days, often in combination or rotation with more effective methods. According to Planned Parenthood, of every 100 women whose partners use withdrawal, four will become pregnant each year if they always do it correctly. Of every 100 women whose partners use withdrawal, 27 will become pregnant each year if they dont always do it correctly. The other elephant in the room when it comes to the withdrawal method is what happens immediately prior precum. Does it get you pregnant? Scientists arent sure yet, but a 2010 study of 27 men showed that 11 of the mens pre-cum contained sperm, and in 10 of those cases a reasonable proportion of the sperm was motile. At any rate, the existing research on pre-cum is inconsistent, but it should still factor into your decision on whether or not to try the pull-out method. New York Magazines The Cut put it best when referencing the pullout generation: Every single American woman whos now in her childbearing years came of age in the era of legal birth control. Many were prescribed the pill before they even started having sex. For years, the pullout method was taboo seen as non-birth control for ignorant risk-takers. This is changing as organizations like Planned Parenthood and Bedsider seek to paint a more accurate picture of what the pull-out method can look like. Despite its negative reputation, spread in part by pop culture, the pull-out method can be a viable option within reason. But the numbers dont lie: Coitus interruptus can be an effective form of birth control if youre with a partner you trust and if you consider using additional methods of contraception and sexually transmitted disease protection, like a condom or dental dam. 38 TOTAL VOTES26% YES 74% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgFridays question: Did you receive the Gainesville2Go email? Todays question: Have you ever used the withdrawal method?Obama gives hope to students with loansEarlier this week, President Barack Obama outlined key changes to how millions of Americans repay their student loans. After years of typical political talk about ing issue that seriously threatens our economy. Just six years after the Great Recession devastated the economy of the U.S., a new bubble appears ready to burst, and its a bubble familiar to many of you reading this column: student loans. Most estimates peg the total student loan debt in the U.S. to somewhere around $1 trillion. Thats an astounding number. Not only are current and former students amassing gargantuan amounts of debt unlike most loans student a new car or start your own business. In other words, student loans will follow you, haunt you and cripple you until you pay them off. to take action, including Obama. An executive order signed by the president caps student loan repayments at 10 percent of ones annual income and forgives loans after 20 years if theyre not paid in full. Its the cans buried in debt. In Congress, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts student loans, something desperately needed for borrowers trapped with high interest rates without the opportunity to Neither proposal is a perfect plan, but its far more than anyones taken in recent years to curb the looming storm generated by $1 trillion in outstanding student loan debt. It is imperative that Congress takes action now and ignoring the economic warning signs, or committing partisan warfare over student loan reform seriously jeopardizes the U.S. economy and the ability for young people to get out from the Everest-sized mountain of debt accrued in recent years. Our economy is based on the spending habits of consumers. If student borrowers cant qualify for loans to buy houses, cars or start businesses, whats the future of the American economy or, for that matter, the country? The cost of higher education has skyrocketed in recent years, and in many cases, the only way to afford college is through student loans. Loans keep the dream of a college education alive for millions of Americans, but that dream quickly becomes a nightmare following graduation. Thoughts of paying more than a monthly interest payment on student loans are nothing more than distant fanpay. With student loan reform, that fantasy gets a little closer to reality, and the stranglehold around the necks of millions might soon be lifted. Some might disagree with the idea of providing solutions to the student debt crisis. After all, students should understand the risks of loans before borrowing, right? Students certainly need to understand the risks of borrowing before they agree to bury themselves in debt, but treating them like indentured servants is not the right solution. Still think we should ignore the problem? Heres another consideration: To avoid a full-blown economic meltdown in 2008, Congress bailed out the big banks to the tune of $700 billion. If consumers are the engine that drives the American economy, what can be done for those buried in student loan debt? In no way is this a call for the federal government to simply forgive $1 trillion in student loans: That would be ludicrous. Instead, we need to offer student borrowers options that allow to them to pay off their loans. Politicians are actually offering real solutions to the student loan crisis, and its time we support the reform proposals. Joel Mendelson is a UF graduate student in political campaigning.

THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 PATRICK GLYNNAvenue WriterJustin McKenzie, 25, asked a crowd of about 100 dancing, sweaty concertgoers at The JAM on Saturday night, Whos thirsty? While taking sips from their various pints of beer and water, the members of the audience responded, We are! Sweaty or not, the audience wasnt thirsty for beer or water. The audience was thirsty for more hornblaring, feet-moving music from the 10-piece, Gainesville-based soul band, The Savants of Soul, who just completed recording their student-operated Swamp Records label. Though the album isnt slated for release until October, the crowd at The JAM was singing along to many of the bands songs, despite the fact that none of them have been released on iTunes. McKenzie joked that the audience knew the words better than he did. The hourlong set highlighted the personalities and energy from all of the band members, which helped sustain the audiences interest and attention throughout the night. Drummer Alex Klausner, 24, played his drums standing up at times while chanting the songs choruses. Trombone player Matthew Rossmann slid his trombone over the head of Mandy Moo while she played her trumpet. Keyboard player Jason Bontrager passionately played his key solos, leaning to the side with one leg high in the air. The band, one of Swamp Records two artists, did it all while dressed in suits and dresses, which Klausner said is all a part of the experience of seeing the band. When theres an electricity in the air and that connection between your audience, its a feeling unlike any other, Klausner said. The music is a vehicle for something bigger. Its about creating an experience for people. He said the band tries to take the audience back to the era of soul and swing music, and dressing up for the performance helps with that. Its not just about the audio, its about the visual experience as well, Klausner said. Youre not just getting an album played for you live; youre getting an experience that supersedes what exists on a recording, he said. Soul music attracts all ages. The night ended with the audience begging the band to play an encore. The band closed with two songs, a cover of Mark Ronsons rendition of The Zutons Valerie, and a mashup of Wilson Picketts Land of a Thousand Dances and The Ramones I Wanna Be Sedated. Swamp Records head director Breana Auberry said the bands dedication to its live performances and presence in the communiin working with the band. The record company will help the band with marketing the album, including helping with the bands website, logo and potentially organizing an album release party.

members Preston Bryant (keyboard/ guitar), Deacon Batchelor (drums) and Mark Glick (cello). Their sound ranged from gleefully misanthropic to somber and heartfelt. Many of the songs on Christmas Island deal with death and grief following the passing of Bonnettes grandfather, including the striking ballad Linda Ronstadt, in which Bonnette describes a true story about breaking down in a museum after seeing a video installation about singer Linda Ronstadt. I almost made it through a year of choking down my fears/But theyre gone for now, all thanks to Linda Ronstadt, Bonnette sang. In the same show, they performed a track off their 2011 album, Knife Man, titled Fucc the Devil, which opens with the line, Im gonna f**k the devil in his mouth. And though the sound is chaotic and frantic, you can relax about getting close to the stage at an Andrew Jackson Jihad show these days. Mosh as gently as you can, Bonnette beseeched the audience after a few songs. He went on to gently remind the concertgoers that no one wants to get a kick to the melon by a crowd surfer. The crowds high energy, Gallaty said, is due in part to the age of their fans: Though the men of Andrew Jackson Jihad are in their 30s, a considerable amount of their avid listeners are teens and 20-somethings. I think its great, Gallaty said. The kids are the ones that are gonna be in the bands of the next generation. So yeah, I just think thats wonderfuland I love talking to em. I think its really awesome when they come up and tell me what they think because I remember being that nervous kid when I was that age. This summer marks Andrew Jackson Jihads 10th year as a band 10 years of playing shows, recording and watching their audience transform from nervous kids to musicians themselves. In a recent Reddit AMA, one Redditor asked the band why theyve eliminated certain songs from their set lists over the years. bum where Im just like, Nah. It just doesnt excite me anymore, Gallaty said. We like to challenge our fans, Gallaty said, and we like to do what we like to do.

Owners Erica Merrell and Cheryl Calhoun have kept Floridas only feminist bookstore running through donations and volunteers. In 2012, the community showed its appreciation in an astounding way when people donated about $6,000 to keep the store from closing down, Merrell said. The money helped the store move to a better, cheaper location that cut operating expenses by 65 percent and brought the stores 7-year-old inventory up-to-date. (National Womens Liberation), as individual women, do our best to shop at and support Wild Iris, said Kendra Vincent, chair of Gainesvilles National Womens Liberation. The store essentially takes the dying art of bookselling and adds feminism behind it, Merrell said. Bookstores like Wild Iris carry titles other bookstores dont, or wont, UF English professor Stephanie Smith wrote in an email. Feminist bookstores put content above competition. These stores work as anchors in the community by drawing people in and making them want to connect, said Katy Burnett, the president of Gainesvilles National Organization for Women. If you go into Barnes and Noble, its not like that, she said. There are so many books, you dont know what to do. Theres no connection. Although the owners and the workers of Wild Iris dont get a dime its not just a bookstore its a sanctuary. I think every owner of Wild Iris has put something on the line, Merrell said. Whether it be their house or their credit or a little bit of their retirement money. Wild Iris has changed peoples lives, she said. Originating in the 1970s as a womens space, the store has always played a part in the activist movement. It gave the courage for some kids have skipped school to retreat to the store, saying it saved their lives, Merrell said. Thats why we all do it, even though we struggle on the side. surrounding feminism, Merrell describes it as striving for equality for everyone. I try really hard with this store conscious about the language we use because I have never thought that feminism was just for women, she said. As for what is actually featured on its shelves, the store tries to give every voice some shelf-space and give value to everyones story, whether it be the voices of minorities, kids, women or the disabled. The store also offers antique jewelry and sells online books on its website. I think that its really important to have spaces like this, Vincent said. It says a lot about the Gainesville community that were able to continue to support a feminist bookstore here in town.Wild Iris recognized as one of USs last feminist bookstores books

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczupryncially joined the Florida football staff, Joker Phillips is out as the Gators wide receivers coach after resigning Wednesday, according to the schools website. Im thankful for the opportunity that the University of Florida and Will Muschamp provided to me and my family, but at this time I have decided to step down from my position on the UF coaching staff for personal reasons, Phillips said in a statement released by UF. Muschamp announced that graduate assistant Chris Leak, who quarterbacked the Gators to a national championship in 2006, will replace Phillips. Leak joined the offensive coaching staff in May 2013 after a few stints in the Canadian Football League and Arena Football League following his graduation from Florida in 2006. Phillips, who coached Kentucky to a 13-24 record from 2010 to 2012, joined the Gators to help turn around a struggling receiving corps that suffered through four different wide receivers coaches from 2009 to 2012. With the constant turnover at the position, Phillips vowed to be a long-term solution when he was initially hired.AP PhotoFormer Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips watches the Gators warm up before Floridas 24-7 victorty against Kentucky on Sept. 28 in Lexington, Ky.

Sheriron Jones (6-foot-2, 189 pounds, Moreno Valley, Calif., Rancho Verde High) verbally committed to Florida on Sunday following his attendance at a football camp in Gainesville. Jones is the No. 10 ranked quarterback in the 2015 class. Despite meeting with coaches throughout the weekend while at camp, the quarterback said it wasnt the coaching staff that convinced him to play his next four years at UF it was the players he talked to that won him over. They basically were like, If you want to be here, youre going to be here and everyIts like that at every college, but I felt like those guys were being like big brothers to defensive tackle Joey Ivie and tight end Tevin Westbrook were responsible for truly making him feel at home. California is a long way from Florida in fact, Gainesville is more than 2,000 miles from his hometown of Moreno Valley. But Jones said he was willing to commit wherever he felt most comfortable, however far from California that may have been. said.

JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126With the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs still vying for an NBA championship, two former Gators are playing, but neither is making much of a contribution to his teams postseason run. Heat power forward Udonis Haslem who averaged just 3.8 points per game on 14.2 minutes per contest in the regular season has registered 36 points in 14 postseason appearances. Haslem logged a mere three minutes in the only recorded statistic being a personal foul in Miamis 98-96 win in Game 2. Likewise, former Gator Matt Bonner has made minimal contributions for the Spurs off the bench this postseason, averaging just 1.2 points per contest since the regular season concluded. The 6-foot-10 power forwards best outings in the postseason came in Games 4 and 6 of the assists against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bonner notched two points on a pair of free throws and an assist in San Antonios 111-92 the series. Gators work out: With the NBA Draft set busy working out with various NBA teams. Patric Young has practiced for multiple teams over the past two weeks, including the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2014 DONALD STERLING ASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES A trial will be held next month to determine whether Donald Sterling, who opposes his estranged wifes planned sale of the Los Angeles Clippers, was properly removed as an administrator for the family trust that owns the team. An attorney for Shelly Sterling went to probate court Wednesday sole trustee she can proceed with the $2 billion sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. The development is the latest in a legal tug-of-war that has ensued following the NBAs decision to ban Sterling for life after racist remarks he made emerged in a recording in April. Sterling is league for $1 billion. The trial, which was granted exceptionally quickly, will begin July 7 and last four days. The deadline for the sale is July 15, which is also the date the NBA Board of Governors is scheduled to vote on whether it will approve the sale. Donald Sterlings lawyer, Bobby Samini, left the courthouse without comment after a clerk announced the trial schedule. Neither Sterling was present. I just want to resolve this as quickly as possible, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told The Associated Press in Miami on Wednesday, when he appeared at an NBA Cares event. The crux of the case will center on the question of whether the 80-year-old Sterling is mentally competent to be a co-trustee of The Sterling Family Trust, which gives him the authority to determine the teams future. According to the trusts terms, he can be ruled mentally incapacitated after being evaluated by two doctors, said Pierce ODonnell, Shelley Sterlings attorney. According to court documents, three doctors examined Donald Sterling in May and concluded that he suffers from mild cognitive impairment consistent with early Alzheimers Disease or some other forms of brain disease. One doctor, James E. Spar, who riatric psychiatry at UCLA, said he believes Mr. Sterling is at risk of making potentially serious errors of judgment, impulse control and nances and his trust.Sterling
RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator Staff Writer@RagjUFJACKSONVILLE Beautiful chaos precedes the beautiful game. Its hot and sticky, just the way it will be every afternoon for the next four months in Northern Florida, but they are not deterred. They march for the sport they love. They march for their countrys colors and the team theyre so passionate about their only hope is that their passion bleeds over to you. If you hang around them long enough, its impossible not to get swept up in the red, white and blue fever they exude from their pores right along with the sweat from the June heat. They are the American Outlaws, the rabid fan base with more than 125 chapters nationwide that meet mostly in bars to cheer on the U.S. mens national team whenever they play. They boast a membership of over 10,000 people, collecting dues of $25 per year per person. They wont let a chapter start in a particular city until 25 people have gotten together to pledge the yearly amount. On this day, the Jacksonville contingent, founded in 2010 with a mission to get an organized but chaotic following of the U.S. mens national team, tailgates before the 2-1 win over Nigeria in team heads to Brazil to compete in the World Cup. The group rivals even at some points surpassing the wildest Florida-Georgia tailgate in sheer craziness outside Everbelieve it, this is America after all. How many people actually care about soccer? The answer is thousands, and its clear to see how unbelievably passionate they are about the 23 men youll see competing on the pitch Monday evening against Ghana. Smoke bombs go off in the middle of a lot next to Russ Does Sandwich Shop, which serves as the Outlaws gameday base of operations a few blocks away from EverBank. The continuous pounding of a drum is the pulsating rhythm of the afternoon. It keeps the different chants on beat hours before the game even starts. A young man that has climbed on the roof of Russ Does leads the chanting crowd below in a rendition of I believe that we will win. The natives yell their own rallying cry Duval, a nod to the county that comprises the nations largest city. But beyond the beer and the incessant yelling, there is family. Many at the tailgate arent memOutlaws chapter or even residents of Florida at all. Theyre nomadic supporters that follow the team wherever they go, linking up with fellow Outlaws once they get to their destination. This is what I do, said Jonathan Slate, president of the Nashville, Tenn., chapter of the American Outlaws. And like his fellow fans, he travels far and wide to see the US play. This is my hobby. This is 100 people that Ive become friends with and who have become family for me with the soccer games and everything. The conversation is cut short. A group wants anyone within shouting distance to know that you cant score on Timmy Howard (the U.S. goalkeeper), because pardon the French hes big and tall like a f***ing brick wall. The chant goes on and on fourth verse, same as the and a whole lot worse. For the last decade, Andrew Wagner has been traveling around, following the team to games. The US-Nigeria matchup is his second time in Jacksonville for a game, and hes seen the team in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Tampa, Nashville and Columbus, Ohio, to name a few of his stops. I think (the fan support) was a lot different in the last World Cup cycle, Wagner said. A lot of what the American Outlaws do because everyone can latch on to a single group and come together like this. Hes a lot like Mike Fera coincidentally a University of Florida graduate. But Fera has upped the ante as a member of the Outlaws, not just going to domestic games but also traveling abroad to see the team play. My big thing now is I go to the away games, he said. Thats like a tight knit community. This is fun, but when you go to away games its the same 40 faces in a hostile environment. You walk into Kingston (Jamaica) and you develop lifelong friendships when youre like damn, if were not boys, were about to die. These soccer fans come in all shapes, sizes, colors and, obviously, genders. One Outlaw from Atlanta named Skylar Ward spoke to alligatorSports about what its like to be a female member of the group. She says she doesnt get the typical treatment female fans of other sports teams get. Nobody asks her if her boyfriend got her You dont really get that with soccer, she said. I think its because Americans are just now catching on to the soccer bus that whether youre man or woman it doesnt really effect it, everyones just jumping on board. While the Outlaws are the host of the packed pregame party, its not just limited to members. Many porters group at all come, looking for a good time with friends and hopefully a victory for the U.S. Together, they form the largest crowd to ever watch a game in the Southeast as more than 52,000 watch the game. Thanks to that, the greatest vindication that their push to grow soccer hysteria in this country is working. This is the most validating thing for a soccer fan, Fera said. As a soccer fan, youre kind of on the outskirts of sports fandom, your average bro is just going to make fun of a soccer dude. But over here, 50,000 people like this? This is what its about. With an hour left before the game is set to kickoff, the march begins. Up Church Street to Parker, then a right on Duval ending at the gate outside the stadium. They cheer with anticipation, and they carry with them a movement. They want you to join them, to support the team they love so dearly. One day, they hope they wont be outlaws, but instead just as mainstream as any other fan of the major sports in this country. Until then, listen closely, and do not tread on them. The American Outlaws will continue to cheer with all that is in them for their team and for their sporting way of life. If the mens national team it in droves, painting your downtown the colors of the American Unlike that of a humans, the ing. The American Outlaws are here to stay. THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 19Richard Johnson / Alligator StaffMembers of the American Outlaws supporters group and other U.S. soccer fans prepare to march to EverBank Field to watch the mens na American Outlaws aim at goal of increased fan support As a soccer fan, youre kind of on the outskirts of sports fandom, your average bro is just going to make fun of a soccer dude.

Im looking forward to contributing to the longterm vision that (coach Will Muschamp) has for this program, Phillips said after his hiring on Dec. 3, 2012. However, Phillips sudden departure means Leak will inherit a receiving group led by Quinton Dunbar just 80 days before Florida opens its season against Idaho on Aug. 30. After Kurt Roper and Mike Summers took over as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, respectively, Leak becomes the Gators third newest offensive coach this offseason. Chris is a bright young coach, Muschamp said. He is one of the all-time Gator greats and being at Florida is very important to him. He has been working with coach Roper and our offensive staff and is very familiar with our players and new system. 20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2014 JOKER, from page 16Phillips spent just one year at UF, Leak to take over NCAA Outdoors run through Saturdayin the following heat after Schnulle, did not qualify and was eliminated from national competition ending his career with the Florida track program. It has been quite the honor to have competed with the best team Obinwa said via his Twitter account. I may be done but my team isnt. The womens 4x100-meter will Reynolds, Ebony Eutsey, Shayla Sanders and Destinee Gause. In addition, after adding to what was a impressive opening to nationals, Graham Jr., and his teammate Najee Glass both advanced in the 400-meter dash with times of 45.83 and 45.56. However, sophomore sprinter Arman Hall just missed the list of qualiof competition has elevated and No. 2/4 Florida has to put its potential to the side and rely on what can be theres. The Gators will return for Day 2 of the four-day event of nationals outdoors on Thursday with an additional 16 athletes competing. Holloway prefers his team to rely on its natural talent. I understand as the head coach that Im only as good as my staff, Holloway said. I have some of the best people out there, and those guys (coaches) are vital. Were just looking forward to another good championship run. TRACK, from page 16Jones compares his game to Brett Favreliked the transparency that the coaching staff had with him while on campus. They were straight forward about what they were doing and who they were recruiting, Jones said. I felt like I could trust them because if theyre going to be honest with me about stuff like that, I dont have to worry about looking over my shoulder with them recruiting someone else. While Jones credits Brett Favre as a quarterback he highly admired while growing up, he said he wants to make his own name for himself at the next level. I really want to be myself, Jones said. I dont really want to compare myself to (Favre), but I feel like my game is getting to his level. Jones is expected to compete with Will Grier once he arrives in Gainesville. Grier, who will have a chance to learn under starting quarterback Jeff Driskel this upcoming season, will have a year of experience under his belt by the time Jones arrives. 2013, Jones said he didnt allow that fact to become a factor in his decision. Things happen, schools go through that all the time, he said. Every school is going to have their down years. It didnt really matter to me Im trying to go to a place where I can trust the players and trust the coaches.
