KYLE FOLLANSBEEAlligator Staff Writerkfollansbee@alligator.orgIf youre wondering what the going rate for a man-sized chilli pepper is, Daniel Helfrich will tell you it costs four Powerade bottles and a smile. But his joy of owning such a massive fake fruit burned in the end because it only took perpetrators two days to steal his prized pepper. On July 16, Helfrich and his girlfriend, Ellen Toneff, were out for lunch at the Chilis on Archer Road when they saw the plump pepper perched on the parking lot. Chilis was doing some renovations and the giant chili was sitting outside, Helfrich said, a 19-year-old UF classics junior. They joked about the idea of taking it home but talking about it just wasnt enough. The manager told them to speak with the renovation crew and thats when they started bartering. Helfrich offered some ice cream, but instead, the parched workers wanted something to drink. So Helfrich brought them two blue and two yellow bottles of Powerade.

Institutions like St. Francis House Inc., Porters Community Farm and GRACE Marketplace are offering their services to feed the homeless and help get them back on their feet. Candice Jones, a volunteer coordinator with St. Francis House, which helps feed and house some of the homeless here in Gainesville, said shes surprised by the ranking. While Jones has been asked to not reveal donors names, she said churches, businesses, organizations and sororities are among the numerous supporters that contribute food donations to St. Francis House. If someone has a catering event at their job, and they have a lot of leftover food, we get that, she said. St. Francis House opens its doors between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and feeds an average of 235 individuals a day.

He said typical lunches and dinners at St. Francis House consist of chicken and other meats and vegetables. Meals change depending on who donates on a given day. Were very appreciative of the ones who donate, he said. Its for a great cause. St. Francis House provides the homeless with fresh produce through donations from Porters Community Farm, an organic urban farm located a few blocks away. Chris Cano, a founder of Gainesville Compost, which works with Porters, said the farm works to help low-income residents in the area, as well as the homeless. He said the farm offers a U-Pick-U-Pay What You Can Farm Stand as one of its services, and community resident plant beds are available for residents in the area to use. GRACE Marketplace, which stands for Gainesville Regional Alachua County Empowerment, is another institution that works to provide food and shelter for the homeless. Theresa Lowe, the executive director of the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, said GRACE Marketplace was created to not only feed the homeless, but also to provide a convenient one-stop location for individuals to receive help getting back toward She said Bread of the Mighty food bank helps GRACE supply breakfast, which consists of coffee, yogurt, fruit and other typical breakfast items. Church groups donate food for its dinners, and GRACE gets pizza from Dominos Pizza as a treat for residents occasionally. Holy Trinity Episcopal Church is one of the churches that donates food to GRACE Marketplace. Harvey Ward, the executive director of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Foundation and current candidate for county commissioner, said church members prepare 75 bag lunches that are delivered to GRACE every Thursday. He said young children at the church help decorate the bags.

The apartment complex has a gated entrance where a guard takes information from new visitors. Someone snuck it past the security guard, Toneff said. She doesnt know how a giant chili could slip by the guarded gate.

I had the chili for two days, Helfrich said. But that is the most likes on Facebook Ive ever had. Helfrich had big plans for the chili, like spicing it up with Christmas lights to have as decoration on his balcony. Helfrich and his friends usually do it big for the holidays, so having the pepper would have meant a lot to them.

GRIFFIN HORVATHAlligator Staff Writerghorvath@alligator.orgWhen Satchels Pizza placed sixth in Kristin Chiricos BuzzFeed article, 18 Pizza Joints You Must Try Before You Die, it wasnt a surprise to Gainesville residents. Satchels, which has been tossing out slices of its now BuzzFeed-famous pizza for 11 years, has been considered a Gainesville institution since its doors first opened. Satchel Raye, founder of Satchels Pizza, said he first heard about the BuzzFeed article through a casual text message conversation with a manager. The pizza aficionado said Satchels stands out from the crowd because of its visually stimulating atmosphere. The restaurant is decorated with quirky pieces of art and a vintage Volkswagen van that seats customers. I feel like all the other stuff is what makes us different, he said. The pizza is what people love. Jordan Borstelmann, a bartender at Satchels, said the best pizza hes ever had has been at the restaurant. He said the style and the attitude of the employees creates a great environment for customers to enjoy. People really feel comfortable, he said. They feel like theyre at home when they come here. Niko Cousins, a 20-year-old business management junior at St. Leo University, brought his girlfriend, 18-year-old St. Leo University marketing freshman Alyssa Mercadante, to Satchels for her first time on Wednesday. Its something that people dont really find everywhere, and I think thats what people are looking for, something different, Mercadante said.

Todays question: Have you heard about the giant chili theft? Step out of the way, government hatersAs late July turns to August, a few events are certain: Fall semester starts in just four short weeks, Gator football kicks off and the home stretch 2014 election begins. With the election looming, along with the glut of negative advertising, constant phone calls, campaign emails and fundraising requests, its time we broach a serious topic. If you dont like the concept of government or the idea of governing, its time for you to step out of the way for those who actually care about the future of American society. Most of us agree that government is not the solution to our community, state or national ills. But government serves an important purpose, and we are beginning to lose sight of what it is government can accomplish. The government operates as the facilitator for the rest of society to function. Without the government, our roads would and in many cases are starting to crumble, the public school system would disappear and many of the basic services we need to survive would simply evaporate. It may not seem like its happening, but the evaporation has already started. If those who do not understand, like or want to govern get out of the way for those who do, the U.S. lost decade could turn into a lost century. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers, the current state of the countrys infrastructure earned the not-so-stellar grade of a D plus in 2013. Our roads, airports, bridges, power grid and drinking water are just a few of the many major infrastructure crises that need addressing. In fact, the only area that received a grade better than a C was how the country handles its solid waste. It received a B minus. How could we start making progress and improve the nations decaying infrastructure? Electing leaders who want to act and understand the role government plays in helping American society grow and how government inaction can ultimately hurt growth. Alachua County has a $550 million backlog of road projects. If youre a private company from another state and are looking to move jobs to Alachua County, a deciding factor could be the crumbling roads. cult time getting to and from work, why would you want to move those jobs to Alachua County? Hopefully, that small example helps underscore the symbiotic relationship government plays with private enterprise. One cannot exist without the other and if businesses are willing to invest in themselves to grow and prosper, then government has the same responsibility to the people it serves. Heres another strange concept: If you hate government, hating government is about as asinine as despising the petroleum industry but spending your life working for an oil company. Government doesnt have to be big or intrusive, but it needs to be functional. We need government at the local, With a major election on the horizon, we need leaders who want to make the government work for the people and who commit to ensuring that the government is ready to handle the challenges we face. Someone pledging to drown government in a bathtub, remove all regulations no matter what or refuse to spend a penny on our crumbling infrastructure is not who we need. Remember, elections are job interviews for leaders, and its our responsibility to hire the best people for the job. Lets be honest, you would never interview for a job by telling the employer that you hate the company and everything it does, right? Thats essentially what a sizable chunk of candidates are saying to get elected. Stop hiring the saboteurs and hire leaders who will spend your tax dollars wisely and allow the government to function.

Her presentation, Spectrum of Light, was held on Wednesday. HEALTH IT INCLUDES AN ALUMNAS. HANNAH FELLAlligator Writerhfell@alligator.orgThe Florida Legislature recently ruled that two of Floridas redrawn districts are illegal. Judge Terry Lewis ruled that the districts, which are redrawn every 10 years, violate a gerrymandering law that prohibits one political party from gaining an advantage in an election over another party. The illegal districts are Rep. Corrine Browns district, a Democrat whose district stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando and Rep. Daniel Websters district, a Republican whose district is in Central Florida. There are 27 districts in Florida. Keith Lee, a UF political science Ph.D. candidate, said the reason districts are redrawn is to make them more competitive. But if voters oppose a political candidates party in their district, it could discourage them from voting because they feel their vote doesnt matter, he said. For political candidates, the redrawn districts mean two things. For incumbents, if the district lines are redrawn, it might not include the candidates house, which means they would have to rule in a district that they arent familiar with. For non-incumbents, the redrawn districts could discourage challengers because they arent sure who they are going to run against. Whoever wins the election, he said, is going to be very vocal when it comes to redrawing the map. Brown, a UF alumna, said in a statement on July 15 that Judge The ruling violates the 1965 Voting Rights Act because it denies African-Americans the opportunity to elect a representative who shares their ethnic identity, she said. Minority communities do not live in compact, cookie-cutter like neighborhoods, Brown said. If the legislature places more of an emphasis on district compactness at the cost of preserving minority access, she said, the districts would fragment minority communities across the state. Webster did not respond to requests for comment. The Florida Legislature will not redraw new legislative districts until after the 2014 elecwould redraw the maps.Florida voting districts ruled illegal

theA v enue Life Itself documentary shows a life well lived. Season passes to High Dive shows available online: JOEY MARTINEZAlready known for dropping beats, No Southern Accent hopes to soon be dropping something else: its second studio album. The UF a capella group announced its planned second album Friday, and that it needs help from fans to make the album a reality. The fundraising efforts just started last week, said Fallon McKain, 22, a mechanical engineering senior major and NSA president. Going forward, the group plans to fundraise and promote the album by singing to tailgaters on game days in the Fall and during the two concerts a year it hosts at the end of each semester. The goal is $12,000 to mix, master and produce the album, McKain said. That total also takes into consideration getting the rights to use other artists songs. Donations can be made at nsaccent.com/cddonation/ Songs on the album include Time by Hans Zimmer, Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, Separate Ways by Journey and Holy Grail by Jay Z featuring Justin Timberlake to name a few, said Amanda Garrett, 20, a sophomore marketing major and NSA public relations director. She said NSA has been using social media to promote the new album and sending letters out to family members and alumni. It will also contain the sets performed at the International Championship of Collegiate A Capella time in UF history and was recognized for outstanding vocal percussion. We hope that our second album can grow to new heights, get our name out in the a capella community and make UF proud, Garrett said. NSA is working with Plaid Productions, who co-engineered six tracks for Foxs Glee and has worked with several other a capella groups. A tentative release date is scheduled for the Fall, Garrett said. When its ready, it will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and in hard copy, McKain said. I think the group has grown have delved into different genres, she said. We are still doing the top do but we have progressed competitively and are a bigger name in the a capella world. NSA released its debut album in 2011 and was nominated for four Contemporary A Capella Recording Awards. It also had one song put on Voices Only, an album that encompasses the best of collegiate a capella all over the country. This new effort differs from the debut album, Group Therapy, because there are new singers, newer songs, new arrangements and an overall new sound. We took more of a contemporary approach with more recognizable songs, said Alex Greene, 23, neering student and the NSA music director from Fall 2012 to Spring and producing the album. Tracking involves recording individual singers performing the tracks before they are later mixed together. It shows the evolution of the group over the last few years and shows that the group has gotten progressively better.

THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014 CODY SMITHAvenue WriterThe indie pop band known as Fun. set the charts ablaze with its hit singles We Are Young and Some Nights. While the group relentlessly toured the past few years, its guitarist, Marc Antonoff, slaved away at a secret project. This project, a band the release of the hit single I Wanna Get Better. The debut album, Strange Desire, straight off RCA Records, cements Antonoff as an exceptional solo musician whos adept at experimenting with multiple genres. After jamming to I Wanna Get Better on a daily basis, I pondered how Antonoff would compose the rest of the album. Would it follow its lead singles sweeping energy and anthemic several alternative subgenres. Call Bleachers an indie pop band all you like, but this debut LP proves it amounts to so much more. Such diversity may weigh down other albums, but Antonoff deftly juggles multiple sounds over the course of Strange Desire. Wild Heart begins as a traditional alternative tune but gradually morphs into a fuzzily distorted symphony. Wake Me dials the energy back in favor of beachy guitar chords and such rumination like Id rather be sad with you / than with any other girls but you. inspirations as he playfully plucks away at his guitar something he learned to do quite well with Fun. among bouncy synths and booming drums. While Bleachers is technically comprised solely by Antonoff, producer John Hill plays a critical role shaping the albums multifaceted personality. Hill takes traditional rock instrumentals and layers them with a bevy of sound effects. Everything from car crashes to echoing vocal snippets accompany Antonoffs slick voice and punchy instrumentals. Antonoff alternates between a forlorn bass and hopeful baritone as he painstakingly delivers the nuanced lyricism of the album. Strange Desire contains songs of eager love but also the album and also mirrors the two features: Grimes croons as a lover on Take Me Away, while Yoko Ono looks ahead as a griever on Im Ready To Move. Antonoffs lyrics, inspired by his sisters death, propel Strange Desire to even greater heights. Who I Want You To Love ends with glitchy vocals from presumably his late sister, telling the listener I want to be grateful for the experiences Ive had. Bleachers reminds us of how lifes struggles can break us down, but we possess the strength has shaped us to become who we are now, even if it hurts. music ASHLEY IACCARINO Avenue WriterBruce Yang and his friends woke up the morning after his bachelor party and checked their phones to make sure they hadnt posted anything embarrassing on social media.

Users can keep the friendships if both parties agree. Now, Sobrr is being used by young social networkers across the U.S. and even internationally, Koehn said. The developers now want to focus on the college market. He said the app is intended for socially active people aged 17 to 35 and those who are tired of the current state of social media. The actual demographic includes 40-year-olds because of publicity in publications such as in VentureBeat, Business Insider, Social Times and The Daily Dot. He said its different than Snapchat and Instagram, two popular photo-sharing apps, because it offers different features such as the friendship feature and the fact that it allows users to connect with others in their area. Bruce had grown tired of the state of current social media where theres a vicarious element to it. It doesnt inspire you to act, but rather, its a mindless act of scrolling through the experiences of other people, Koehn said. What he was looking for was something more sincere that encouraged people to go out and live their lives. Sobrr protects users privacy and information by deleting everything in its server 24 hours from when its posted, he said. Were very strict about privacy. Thats something thats very important to us, Koehn said. Joey Friedman, UF alumnus and the president of Uber Promotions, compared the app to the iPad mini, saying he doesnt know if theres a real need for it. He said that because Snapchat deletes the images and videos right away and Facebook keeps the media, he doesnt see a point for there to be an app for in-between. Facebook allows people to go back and look at media a couple of days later, he said. He added that he thinks the social media market is becoming oversaturated. Dixie Smith, a 20-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology junior and Gainesville nightlife might use the app but otherwise thinks UF students are pretty careful about what they post on social media. Whatever we post is never truly lost, she said. And we all have futures to think about. She said she thinks the app will get repetitive. Koehn said that since the app launched in February, it has received more international attention than they were expecting. They have users in countries like Dubai and China and are trying to encourage more usage in the U.S. because thats where theyre based. The app is free and available at the iTunes App Store.Sobrr app seeks college users RIANA MELENDEZAvenue WriterHigh Dive is giving people a chance to take advantage of its concerts while still saving some extra cash. venue will be selling season passes for unlimited access to all High Dive and Glory Days Presents concerts scheduled for the fall season. Thats an awesome deal for the amount of shows they host, said 23year-old Anthony Tran-Son-Tay, a UF business graduate student. Its something I would most likely invest in. High Dive season passes are being sold only on TicketWeb through July, or until they are sold out, for $119. However, the price rises $10 every Monday, according to High Dives TicketWeb webpage. Patrick Lavery, the owner of the High Dive promotion company Glory Days Presents, said he couldnt say how many tickets are left, but its very limited. Aside from shows, the pass also includes other special bonuses such as a High Dive koozie, special offers and discounts, an invitation to a private holiday party in December, no under-21 fees and permission to skip the line, according to TicketWeb. Running anywhere between $5 and $20, High Dive, at 210 SW Second Ave., holds a number of concerts every year for any kind of music lover, or people who just want to come out and try something new, Lavery said. Theres a good collection of bands throughout the year, so there is something for everyones preference, Tran-SonTay said. The passes are only valid for shows scheduled from Aug. 18 to Dec. 30 and do not include charitable events or shows hosted by outside promoters. Jose Pineiro, who is a part of the local band Duppies that plays regularly at High Dive, wrote in an email that the shows are generally great, and its a great deal for the consumer and the venue, but for local bands it it. Its customary for High Dive to have new, entry-level bands sell a set number of tickets, and any profits from extra attendance goes to the band. The pass will make it harder to get that number, Pineiro said. Lavery declined to comment on the effect the season passes would have on what bands take home. Tickets bought online will be available for pickup around Aug. 1 at High Dive.Season passes for sale

THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Chloe Mann ended her UF career as one of the best players in the volleyball program. Read the story on page 19. Kitchens waived by BuffaloFormer Gators linebacker Darrin Kitchens was waived by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday after suffering a leg injury Monday. He is on the Bills injured-reserve list. Teeing OffSingle-game home tickets became available for purchase on MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyAlligatorSports continues its Gators football position preview by looking at the defensive line and linebackers. There are a number of players along the defensive line that will have to step into a leadership role for 2014. The loss of Dominique Easley who was drafted in May by the New England Patriots to an ACL tear early last season was a huge blow to the entire defenses morale. One of the new leaders for 2014 is Dante Fowler, Jr. Fowler will start at the Buck position a hybrid defensive end/ linebacker in Will Muschamps defensive scheme. As a sophomore, he led the team in sacks with 3.5 along with seven quarterback hurries. His speed and explosiveness to get around the edge will once again provide the defense with a strong pass rush. If he continues to get off blocks and disrupt quarterbacks this season, Fowler will be at the top of the stat charts by the end of the season again. Defensive tackle Darious Cumcareer on a high note in 2014. He came on strong toward the end of last season, racking up 13 of his 15 year. Redshirt senior Leon Orr did not participate in spring due to a Alligator File PhotoDante Fowler, Jr. awaits a snap during Floridas 24-7 win against Kentucky on Sept. 28 at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky. Fowler looks to become one of UFs leaders on defense this year. UF hopes defense doesnt rest in 4 LAWRENCE LAGUNAAlligator Writer@LagunaLawrenceOf all the NBA offseason activities occurring this summer regarding former Florida basketball players, Chandler Parsons new deal stands above all. The soon to be four-year small forward decided to take up the Dallas Mavericks three-year, $46 million offer on July 10 after the Houston Rockets failed to match it. With the new contract, Parsons became the highest paid player per year ($14.7 million) on the Mavericks roster after power forward Dirk Nowitzki signed a reduced deal to clear up cap room for the team. Parsons, a Casselberry, Fla., native, is a rising star in stint with Houston on the rise. The 6-foot-9, 227-pound forward elevated his game last season to new heights by setting career averages in points (16.6), free-throw percentage (.742), rebounds (5.5) and assists (four). Rockets starting forward position with 37.6 minutes per a big void. Rockets center Dwight Howard believes losing him wont hurt the team. However, Parsons was the thirdleading scorer on the squad last season. He will arrive in Dallas alongside other offseason acquisitions like Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton. Miller rejoins LeBron in Cleveland: After winning back-to-back titles with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013, Mike Miller will become teammates with LeBron James once again. Miller was heavily recruited by James and then signed a two-year, $5.5 million deal with the Cavaliers, which adds to the depth in the newly developing roster this offseason. The 34-year-old veteran spent last season with the 7.1 points in a reserve role, but he shot 45.9 percent from the three-point arc. The three-point specialist has been known throughout his career as a shooting threat, and he can add his expertise Gators in the NBA: Parsons gets paid, Miller rejoins LeBronPOSITION PREVIEWSEE NBA, PAGE 20 SEE POSITION, PAGE 20Parsons JOHNSONS JOURNALWhat will it take for the Florida football fanbase to be satiated? What will it take for it to stop calling for Will Muschamps head on a silver platter? the moderates be swayed into believing that Muschamp is making noticeable improvewin-loss scenarios. Double-digit wins are a dream come true for this team. Ten wins in the regular season is the logical ceiling for what I think this team can do given the talent and the schedule. Of course they could luck their way to 11 or 12 and the College Football Playoff if things break the right way like they did in 2012, but thats unlikely. Ten are sitting pretty in Atlanta if you assume the losses are to Florida State and have swept its Eastern Division slate and earned a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game. That would easily placate the fanbase and give Muschamp another year. Nine regular season wins would also do the trick. Again, Im assuming losses to FSU and Alabama, which are the two most loaded rosters in the nation. Then the next most logical L would be South Carolina, the medias pick to win the SECs Eastern Eivision. Florida in a New Years Day bowl game in either the Capital One or Outback Bowl. Its season. Eight regular season wins is the gray area. Thats losses to the Big Two, the Ol Ball This is where the vanity of Floridas season How many wins will fans need to see from Muschamp?SEE COLUMN, PAGE 20 Richard Johnsontwitter: @RagjUF

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014 FSU ASSOCIATED PRESSGREENSBORO, N.C. Jameis Winston wants to look to the season ahead as the Heisman Trophywinning quarterback for reigning national champion Florida State. He also knows he has to answer duct. I understand the spotlight, of the Atlantic Coast Conferences two-day preseason kickoff event. I understand what it is to be a leader and Im bettering myself every single day to hold myself to that standard that everyone views me as, you know? Because Im on a pedestal. Other players dont get the privilege of being on that pedestal. Winston was investigated for sexual assault during last season. A prosecutor in Tallahassee, Fla., decided in December not to charge him due to a lack of evidence and gaps in the accusers story. Then in April, he was cited for walking out of a supermarket without paying for crab legs. of the incident Sunday during an hour-long interview session that had about 60 reporters crowded around his table. Instead, he focused on working to become a better leader and player with the support of family, teammates and coaches. I have a certain standard that Ive got to hold myself up to, and if I go even an inch below that standard, its going to be chaos. to learn, Winston said, It wasnt from your mistakes in this world. I and I moved on into preparing for this season. Miami running back Duke Johnson described Winston as a kid still and said Winston does not seem bothered by outside criticism. He likes to have fun, he likes to play around, and a lot of people take that out of (context) and make it bigger than what it really is, Johnson said. But I dont believe Jameis means any harm in what he does or anything he may have done in the past. Winston seemed at ease with the attention and prepared for the questions Sunday. He started his interview by pointing out that the ACC, not the Southeastern Conference, won last years national championship and playfully asked reporters for a round of applause. At times leaning back with his hands behind his head, Winston talked about improving his mechanics by holding the ball higher to shorten his throwing motion, his hope of becoming a pro in both football and baseball and how he was more focused on winning a second title than a second Heisman. As for whether people might be hesitant to believe he has learned from his past? . but I know the type of person that I am, he said. I know I have support from my teammates and I know that I was raised by a great family. So thats the least of my worries, what people think.Winston prepares for upcoming season in national spotlight I have a certain standard that Ive got to hold myself up to, and if I go even an inch below that standard, its going to be chaos.Jameis WinstonFSU quarterback

alligator awards JORDAN MCPHERSON and EDEN OTEROAlligator Staff WritersAs part of the Alligator Awards recognizing the best in UF athletics during the 2013-14 season, staff writers Jordan McPherson and Eden nominees for best female athlete. Check out the rest of the nominees in the graphic below. And be sure to torSports.org. Eden: During the 2013-2014 season, we saw a lot of female athletes do incredible things, but Kytra Hunter was the best. Hunter quite possibly had the best season of her entire gymnastics career in 2014. She completed the year with six perfect scores two on vault the team repeat for a second straight national title. Her performance this season made her the strongest athlete for Florida, and thats saying something considering the team boasts two Olympians Bridget Sloan and Alaina Johnson and two sisters who were dubbed to go to the Olympics Mackenzie Caquatto and Bridgette Caquatto. And by the way, Bridgette Caquatto went to the Pan-American Games and won on a shattered kneecap, so thats saying a lot. Its not easy to stand out in a crowd that is as talented as this one. But Hunter set herself apart from the rest of the pack with perfection throughout the 2014 season. Jordan: Hunter had a great year, but are you sure she was the best on her team? Sloan paced the team in allaround scores in nine of its 14 events, forcing Hunter to play Olympian. The Alligator Award without a doubt deserves to go to volleyballs Chloe Mann. The senior middle blocker led the country with a .506 hitting percentage and led the Gators with 369 kills while committing just 47 errors. Do you remember the last time a UF player notched a hitting percentage above .500 in a season? It hasnt. In fact, the only other time a player managed a hitting clip that high in a year with the current scoring format was when Penn States Arielle Wilson notched a .540 mark back in 2009. at UF gave her a .476 career hitting percentage the best in NCAA history. Mann carried her team on her back. Hunter had help. Eden: Hunter may have had some help, but thats what a team needs to win a national championship. Do you see a title ring on cause I dont. If Mann was really the best female athlete, she would have been able to help lead her team past the second round of the NCAA Finals in 2013. I know it seems low to fault her for not having teammates to help her bring home a title, but that is key in being a strong athlete to be able to inspire and push your teammates. Hunter has become a leader alongside Sloan because she can see that in order to win, shes going to need help. Jordan: If this rally was for the best team, then clearly you have me beat. But its not. This Alligator Award is about the best female ATHLETE a single competitor. And no one who played a sport on UFs campus this season was as much of a competitor as Mann. Lets face it, Mann was the focal point of Florida volleyballs offense last season. She led or tied for the team lead in kills on 14 occasions in 2013 and had double-digit kill mark in 22 of UFs 32 matches. Her contributions on defense second on the team with 91 total blocks compared to just 13 blocking errors. Im not discrediting what Hunter has accomplished, but if you removed her from the lineup, Rhonda Faehns squad still would have found success. If Mann wasnt on the team, Florida volleyball would have gone nowhere. Eden: Are you really saying that Mann is the LeBron James of the volleyball team? Because thats a bit of an exaggeration. Dont get me wrong. Mann had a hell of a season, but so did Hunter. I disagree that Faehn would have been able to replace her. The only other gymnast for Florida that ever proved to be as good as Hunter (and could adequately replace her because lets exercise 11 of 13 times this season and six of those were consecutive) And you cant replace Hunter with someone that is already competing in the event. Not to mention, if they lost Hunter then they would lose one of their best all-around competitors. I will also point out that many of the secondaries on Faehns roster were suffering from some sort of injury. Lauren Rose, someone who could replace Hunter on the vault has had serious issues with her achilles tendon for the last three years. Rachel Spicer, despite being not be able to make up for what the Gators would lose if Hunter wasnt performing. And Jamie Shisler hasnt shown a consistent performance in the last year. Mark my words, Hunter is going to be talked about for seasons to come when she graduates because thats what happens when you break records left and right in a single season.

to a franchise desperately seeking playoff presence. Miller also had interest in other teams, including the Denver Nuggets. Beal joins Team USA camp roster for FIBA World Cup: Out of a 19-man training camp roster Team USA has compiled, Bradley Beal is the lone Wizards representative. Beal has an opportunity to land on the permanent 12-man team that will compete during the FIBA Basketball World Cup starting Aug. 30 in Spain. The training camp will run through July 28 to Aug. 1 in Las Vegas where Beal can work for a roster spot against stars like Kevin Durant and James Harden. After edging out teammate John Wall on the roster, Beal will battle alongside former Gator Chandler Parsons as they headline past Florida greats. But it wont be easy for either player to make the roster. Durant, Harden, Kevin Love and Anthony Davis all played on the USA team that won gold in the 2012 Olympics in London. In addition, players like Derrick Rose, Blake Grifa guaranteed spot due to their elevated play on the court. Beals chances can be limited to a few due to veteran players, leaving the Wizards guard with no choice but to deliver. comes to the forefront. With the talent at the skill positions as well as how new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper plans to maximize it, this team shouldnt rank in the bottom half of offensive categories, much less its abysmal 115th in yards per game, 110th in yards per play and 116th in total yards. If Florida can show an overly competent offense on its way to an 8-4 year, it might just be good enough. one of its four losses, something easily explained away by the fans. A bad call on the road in Alabama or a 50-yard heart breakSouth Carolina may be enough to rationalize 8-4. Seven wins is where things get dicey. Without 2013s cosmic over-regression to the mean, seven wins is likely where last season should have ended up. And the Gators were close with four losses last season coming by six points or less. But seven wins in 2014 likely means a loss to the four given above and then a stubbed toe against Missouri on homecoming or a Tennessee team that could enter the Oct. 4 meeting with a 1-3 record or a second straight loss to Vanderbilt. Thats now one 6-6 regular season, one 4-8 regular season, one 7-5 regular season and than it already was. Seven wins in my estimation wont be good enough for a majority of folks that want Will Muschamp gone to stop their pleas to athletics director Jeremy Foley. A 4-8 record in Gainesville is something Muschamp may never recover from in the minds of Gator fans. If hes going to have a chance, hes going to have to win. 20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014 Jonathan Czupryn / Alligator StaffWill Muschamp speaks at the Southeastern Conference Media Days in Hoover, Ala., on July 14. He is entering his fourth year at Florida. UGA, Vandy loss could cost Muschamp COLUMN, from page 17Florida loses Powell, but welcomes back Taylor and Morrisonfractured wrist, but he will be ready for fall camp. Orr is the likely candidate to win the starting nose tackle job this fall. He played in all 12 games last year, including the South Carolina contest on Nov. 16 when he tied his careerhigh of four tackles. Jon Bullard saw reps at defensive tackle he should be back at defensive end when the among defensive linemen with 33 tackles last year. With Fowler on the other end, the two have the potential to be one of the best pass rushing duos in the Southeastern Conference. The linebacker corps will be without Ronald Powell this season, but it will welcome back Michael Taylor and Antonio Morrison. Redshirt senior Neiron Ball should be taking over for Powell at the Sam position. Ball has the veteran experience to lead the group having played in 36 games over his career at Florida. His best game last season came against South Carolina when he had a careertackles. Taylor returns to the roster after leading the team in total tackles (62) last season. However, he will have to battle with sophomore Jarrad Davis for the starting Mike spot. He had 24 total tackles last season and was named a team captain for the Missouri and South Carolina games. Morrison is back fully healthy after a knee injury ended his season in the Vanderbilt game. Despite missing the last three games of team with 56 total tackles.
