The City of Gainesville Public Safety Commission discussed a potential bicycle registration program on Monday that would mandate local cyclists to register their bicycles and pay a fee. The proposal has generated both support and criticism. Yvonne Hinson-Rawls, a District 1 commissioner who brought the proposal to attention, believes it would be a positive move for the city. Im trying to do what I think is good for everybody, she said. Every mode of transportation needs its own revenue source. Hinson-Rawls said she supports the bicycle registration program because she believes it will provide a system of guaranteeing revenue to support the citys bicycle infrastructure, help educate citizens on how to ride safely when sharing the road with automobiles and provide a greater means of security in creating a system to help track down lost and stolen bicycles. She said an enforced registration program would also help identify a growing number of criminals who use bicycles when committing crimes.

Social media sites exploded last week with pictures of Helfrich and his ill-fated pepper, which led Chilis representatives to reach out to his girlfriend, Ellen Toneff, on Twitter. They asked her if she could bring him to the Archer Road location today where they are planning to surprise him with an item they are bringing in a truck, Toneff said. He hates surprises! Toneff said, joking. Hes probably going to kill me. She said she thinks they are going to give him a replacement chili but isnt certain. Chilis is now sharing the story on its social media to help catch the perpetrators. If Helfrichs generous $20 Chilis gift card reward wasnt enough, Chilis is now doubling that amount to see the chili back to its rightful owner. Nobody has helped, Helfrich said, unaware of what is to come. Helfrich said the Pavilion on 62nd apartment complex failed to mention that cameras were near the entrance, possibly showing the pepper culprits. Toneff said she feels that whoever took the chili is now feeling the heat due to all the media attention. Now, they probably ditched the chili, Toneff said. I would be freaking out.

LINDSEY COOK-SAUCIERAlligator Contributing WriterThree girls sat huddled in the corner of Sarkara Sweets, playing the word game Scattergories in silence. The entire sweet shop was quiet. They were the only customers. This summer, quiet nights are all too common in the sweet shop at 201 SE Second Ave. The lack of customers meant the shop had to cut back custom cupcake bar. Sarkara Sweets is known for its custom cupcake bar is where people can build their own cupcakes from a variety of choices. Every Summer A, though, the lack of customers forces the shop to close its custom bar. It is now open for Summer B at reduced hours: Wednesday through Saturday from 2 to 9 p.m. Stephanie Silva, manager and co-owner of the store, said whether it stays open depends on if sales increase. Sarkara will soon be deciding if it will make the custom cupcakes for the rest of Summer B. Everything in the shop is made from scratch, Silva said. There is not enough money to make all the unique items for the custom bar every day if it is not going to sell. She said this is the worst summer she and her twin sister and business partner, Susan Stieglitz, have endured in the three-and-a-half years Sarkara has been at its current location. The custom cupcake bar is still open on what Silva described as a custom bar did not make enough to money to justify being open but picked up in the third week. The fourth week will determine if the custom bar stays open. Last summer, there were not enough customers to keep the custom bar open. Were doing it out of stubbornness and hoping it works, Silva said. Monday night, the silence was only interrupted when the round of Scattergories ended and the three girls burst into animated talking. Paige Parnell, Victoria Parnell and Keyannie Johnson enjoyed a cousin get-together at Sarkara Sweets that night, but they came for a custom cupcake. Johnson said the custom bar is the whole reason they come to Sarkara and Victoria said had they known it wouldnt be open, they would have gone somewhere else. One time, the three walked in together and did just that when they discovered that they could not get exactly what they craved. I wish it was open, Paige said.

LOCALCupcake store battles summer slump IT HAS BEEN OPEN 12 YEARS. JACQUELINE ADADIAlligator Contributing WriterGainesville is becoming a technology hub that will soon be teeming with job opportunities. The UF Tech Connect proTechnology Licensing, assists technology-oriented startup companies with getting their products on the market. It has helped create 2,000 new jobs in the 12 years that it has been open and is looking to do more. If you want to stay in the community, there will be jobs here that enable you to do that, said Jane Muir, director of UF Tech Connect and assoTechnology Licensing. Tech Connect helps entrepreneurs with their startups through workshops in areas such as contracts and business plans. It also helps entrepreneurs with networking and Muir said Tech Connect aims to teach local startup companies everything they need to be successful. Its just another tool and resource that UF is fortunate to have to help accelerate the discoveries that happen in the research laboratories and get them into the marketplace, where theyre making an impact on peoples lives, Muir said. John King, CEO of Quantitative Medicine, one of Tech Connects startup companies, said the services consistently make a big difference in his company. The whole concept that the university has built here is well thought out, King said. Leandro Neves, one of the founders of RAPiD Genomics, another one of Tech Connects startup companies, said the money they received from the university and private investors was really useful. For a young company, its research when you have so many other expenses to cover, Neves said. The money allows us to remain competitive by doing research. Yatit Thakker, CEO of Omninox Publishing, said the program is great for new companies and founders that want to learn The workshops really come of companies, Thakker said. The Florida Innovation Hub at UF isnt only focused on helping the community in the future. When they arent working on new ideas, they enjoy a little friendly competition. Muir said the Innovation Hub had an internal challenge one could get more entrepreneurs to donate blood. LifeSouth Community Blood Center has a good day when they can get 20 people to donate, but after the competition, it had more than 30 blood donations that day. Not only are we smart and passionate about what we do, but these young entrepreneurs also believe in giving back to the community, Muir said. UF Tech Connect service grows, brings local jobs

Although Israel and Netanyahu agreed to attacks for six hours, the leading governing body of Gaza, Hamas, chose to decline the inately. rockets at Israel over the past 20 days, according to The New York Times.

So its an understatement to say that Im jealous of the men who can go shirtless and wear one fewer thing on these mid-90 degree days. Heres some history for you: Men havent always been able to go shirtless. Religious individuals in the 1900s banned all nipples in public places. In 1935, 42 men were arrested for going topless in Atlantic City. The male population protested, and the male topless ban was subsequently lifted in 1936. Suddenly a mans nipples were no longer obscene in society, but rather commonplace and natural, nothing wrong with a little nipple, right? Well, apparently there is as long as its a female nipple. Its an everyday occurrence for a male to go without a shirt, but its still illegal for women to go topless in 35 states. Enter the Free The Nipple movethis form of female censorship. The movement is bolstered by edy directed by Lina Esco released earlier this year. It explored the conof violence to our countrys censorship of womens bodies. The issues were addressing are equal rights for men and women, a more balanced system of censorship, and legal rights for all women to breastfeed in public. Arguably, the reason it is still illegal for women or those who do not identify as women but have typically female breasts, to go topless is because breasts are hypersexualized in our culture. We see breasts as sexy and attractive, and we derive sexual pleasure from said breasts. In reality, female breasts are not teristics, similar to the male Adams apple. Consider this my petition to sexualize Adams apples as we do breasts. Really though, my breasts exist because they house mammary glands that will someday feed any children I might have. Sure, I know my breasts are about it, there is nothing sexy or sexual about sacks of fat that contain milk glands, which is what breasts anatomically are. The legality of going topless in Florida is ambiguous. Title XLVI, Chapter 800, of the Florida statute limits indecent exposure and exposure of sexual organs, but makes no allow breastfeeding. In 2006, Elizabeth Book set the precedent for exposing her breasts as part of a political protest. The appeals court held that women could demonstrate topless as part of a legitimate political protest, according to an NBC article. However, Florida law still leaves going topless in any other scenario up for interpretation. The Gainesville municipal code article II, covers nudity in public places. The code explicitly includes the tion of nudity and states, It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly, intentionally, or recklessly appear, or cause another person to appear, nude in a public place or in any other place which is readily visible to the public. So its still illegal for women to expose their breasts which are made of the same breast tissue, areola and nipple that male breasts are composed of despite the fact that men have been able to do so for more than 75 years. The issue may seem trivial. Put on a tank top. Wear a bra. Get over it. But its these policies and laws prohibiting toplessness that add to bodies in our society. The oversexualization of womens bodies make it so that our bodies are seen as property or a source of pleasure rather than something we have ownership and autonomy over. Dont believe me? If I wanted, I could go to the drugstore or the gas station right now and buy a pornographic magazine, which contains images of naked women. I can buy nudity, but I myself cannot be nude. Sex worker Violet Rose summed it up when she said, It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-Eleven store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America. This double standard leads to bigger issues: criminalization of breastfeeding in public, the use of what was she wearing as a defense for sexual assaults, sexism in the workplace. Theres no easy solution to this. its legal to organize a topless protest in Turlington which we should probably not going to effect a big change in our society or laws. What I can do is encourage you to explore the Free The Nipple movement. On days when you decide to go braless, I can support you, even, and especially, if you might be able to see your nipples through your shirt. And on days when it feels like 105 degrees outside and I glare at the shirtless men on campus, I can think that we, as women, deserve that same right. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior.

July 28, 1987 When two campus groups asked to talk about rape during new students Preview, they were told they spend too much time addressing major concerns, like residence halls and meal plans, to discuss grim topics. They should hear from these groups while they agreed with the groups importance, July 29, 1999 against an anti-rave law making its way through Gainesvilles City Commission. They took the citys vote against the law, which would force businesses with liquor licenses to close by 2 a.m., as a signal they were having an effect on off-campus politics. The law was expected to do away with raves because they would be forced to close at the same time they were getting started. July 30, 2002 It was a sneak attack. There were bashed-in heads and missing eyebrows. A string of vandalism swept across Gainesville when a series of gator statues were defaced.

TUESDAY, JULY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 AP Photo Alligator Contributing WriterFloridas ban on same-sex marriage has been declared unconstitutional for the second time this month. The Friday ruling by Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel mirrored the decision made two weeks ago by Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia. Preventing couples from marrying solely on the basis of their sexual orientation serves no governmental interest, Judge Zabel wrote in her opinion. She also ordered an immediate stay of her ruling. AtDarren Hutchinson, a UF law professor, said most judges who have ruled in favor of same-sex couples have stayed their ruling in anticipation of appeals by state defendants, as Bondi has done in both Florida cases thus far. This puts the effects of the ruling on hold until a clean decision has been made. Theyre just trying to avoid the chaos that could result if couples started getting married and an appeals court later reversed the ruling favoring same-sex marriage, Hutchinson said. Mallory Garner-Wells, public policy director of Equalwith six same-sex couples, said that it is likely that the Miami and Key West lawsuit will be combined into one case. They ask the same fundamental question: Should Florida recognize same-sex marriages? She said. The Miami-Dade ruling is one of many court decisions striking down same-sex marriage bans in the U.S., most recently in Colorado and Virginia. I think theyre moving past questions about morality to questions about equal protection under the 14th Amendment, Steven Noll, a UF history professor said. Even conservative judges that may feel homosexuality that same-sex marriage is illegal. Both Garcia and Zabel were appointed by former Gov. Jeb Bush and re-elected. These are not liberal judges castigated by the right as makers of new law. Its not a liberal fringe thats moving the country this way, Noll said. Its people who follow the law. Hutchinson believes that both judges felt comfortable by ruling in favor of same-sex marriage because theyre aware of how public opinion on the issue is shifting. When judges make decisions in controversial cases, they try to be aware of how the decision will be received, Hutchinson said. The judges in Florida know the tide is turning.Second Florida judge OKs samesex marriageCAMPUS Alligator Contributing WriterA UF student with high-functioning autism wants to help incoming freshHaley Moss, a 19-year-old UF psychology and criminology senior, published her second book on Monday. The book, A Freshman Survival Guide for College Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Stuff Nobody Tells you About!, is about her experiences Moss was diagnosed with highfunctioning autism when she was 3 Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About, in 2010. When I was at the transition point between high school and college, there wasnt a lot out there except for things written by parents, Moss said. When you are at that point, you want to hear about it from a student whos been through it. If one person gets something out of this book, then I have done my job. joyable but challenging. Routine tasks put all my clothes and detergent in the dryer, she said. Moss wrote her book in about a month during the summer, but the took a whole year. Ann-Marie Orlando, coordinator for education and training programs at the UF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, said writing a book while maintaining a full-time college course load is an accomplishment for any student. I think everyone can be encouraged and empowered by her story. I think when community awareness, knowledge and acceptance is increased, it opens the door to opportunity, Orlando said. Moss book is available for purchase on Amazon.com Inc.s Kindle and Barnes & Noble Inc.s Nook e-book reader, as well as printed paperback through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.UF student publishes her second book WASHINGTON A freshman Republican lawmaker has apologized for mistaking two senior U.S. government ofsional hearing.

The commitment came as somewhat of a surprise as McCloud was in attendance at UFs Friday Night Lights camp. The feeling was that McCloud would go with Florida with Gainesville fresh on his mind. Four-star cornerback decommits from Florida: 2015 cornerback Marcus Lewis (6 foot 194 pounds, Washington, D.C., Gonzaga Collegiate Academy) decommitted from UF on Monday. Lewis had been wavering on his commitment for the last month. He took a visit to Michigan this past weekend. Although he is decommitted, his top four schools include Florida, Michigan, Miami and Oregon. Floridas 2015 class remains with just seven verbal commitments.

But I just can do it. Holland was on campus as early as Wednesday and said he thoroughly enjoyed being on campus with former Trinity teammates Nick Washington and Kavaris Harkless. It was great; I just got to hang out with the players, Holland said. They really didnt take it as a recruiting trip, I just came to hang out and kick it with the coaches. Hollands top schools include Florida, Auburn and UCLA. He is planning on enrolling early so he is expected to make a decision in December. Roquan Smith enjoys visit: Linebacker Roquan Smith (6 foot, 203 pounds, Montezuma, Ga., Macon County High) was in attendance Friday, but he did not work out. It was a pretty good visit, Smith said.

LAWRENCE LAGUNAAlligator Writer@LagunaLawrenceWith NFL training camps in session for the upcoming 2014 season, former Gator greats are on the rise while others are not. Matt Elam has shown hes ready to be a standout for the Baltimore Ravens defensive unit. The second-year safety out of Florida complied 77 combined tackles last season, which is eight fewer than former Raven Ed Reed had in his rookie campaign. Elam will now be reuniting with his natural position of strong safety and is expected to improve on what he has already accomplished. Elam registered 66 tackles with only three pass breakups and an interception at the free safety position in 2013. James Ihedigbo, now with the Detroit Lions, occupied the strong safety slot. With Ihedigbo out of town, Elam is now returning to pressuring the line of scrimmage instead of playing the In one start at strong safety last season, Elam had his highest-rated game Gators in the NFL: Elam returns to strong safetyPOSITION PREVIEW MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan MoriartyAlligatorSports continues its 2014 Florida football position breakdown by turning its attention to the running backs. Florida enters the 2014 season with one of the deepest running-back corps in the Southeastern Conference. The group is led by sophomore Kelvin Taylor. Taylor, the son of former Gator and NFL great tailback Fred Taylor, had a breakout season in 2013. He racked up 508 yards and four touchdowns. His best games came against Missouri, where he averaged six yards per carry, and South Carolina, rushing for 96 yards and adding the Gators only two touchdowns of the game. He was voted on the Freshman AllSEC team by the leagues coaches following the season. With a year of experience under his belt, expect Taylor to carry the bulk of the rushing load for 2014. Redshirt senior Mack Brown returns after leading the team in rushing yards (543) at the end of last season. Brown exceled in last years opener against Toledo, gaining 112 yards on the ground and adding two touchdowns, but he wasnt able to rush for more than 100 yards in a game after that point. His next best game came against Tennessee, where he had 86 yards and a touchdown. Brown and Taylor arent the only returning starters for Floridas running game. Junior Matt Jones is fully healthy after he suffered an MCL tear during the LSU game on Oct. 12, which sidelined him for the remainder of the 2013 season. Jones wasnt full-go for most of the season before his injury either. He had a mysterious viral infection that he didnt play until the Miami game on Sept. 7. He had a rusty performance of just 47 yards on 18 carries in Coral Gables.

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 Otero will debate two of the Jordan: There were several bright spots from Floridas male athletes this season, but Dedric Dukes stood above the rest. The junior sprinter on UFs bests in every event he competed in this season. He ran the third leg of the 4x400-meter relay team during the indoor season that broke a school record, which was from 2005. That same 4x400 relay team of Najee Glass, Hugh Graham Jr., Dukes and Arman Hall was also the three-minute barrier in the outdoor season. Individually, Dukes dominated the 200-meter dash during both campaigns, running the fastest time in school history in both the outdoor (19.91 seconds) and indoor (20.34) seasons since the turn of the century. Need I say more? Eden: Im going to get behind ment, but Im going to have to say junior long and triple jumper Dendy completed his year with an outdoor national title win in the long and triple jump, which had not been done since 2002. The win marked Dendys second individual NCAA title win in two years (in 2013 Dendy won the indoor long jump title) and won the outdoor long jump. Whats even more impressive about Dendys win is that he replaced his best triple jump score with 17.05 meters. And for those of you that dont know the metric system, thats 55 feet. Let me say it again: 55 feet. That set him up as Floridas history. Now, if that doesnt scream best male athlete of the year then I dont know what does. Jordan: Dendy had a great competitor. But Dukes had the better allaround outing this year. The Miami native ran a sub-20-second 200-meter dash not once, but twice during the outdoor sealete to do so while in college. The second time he accomplished the feat, it lifted him to Outdoor Championships and gave him the fourth-best time in NCAA Championship history. And what makes Dukes personal-best run more outstanding is that it came just 40 minutes after running the anchor leg of team. Dendys two titles at the NCAA Outdoors, in comparison, came on two different days, three days apart from each other. Eden: What Dukes did is astounding. Thats a lot to put on an athlete, but Dendy is the only mens jumper for Florida. He carries the weight of two entire events. His ability to carry the events is a testament to Dendys success this year. Hes the best not only because he doesnt crack under pressure, but also because he can produce, now. The Middleton, Del., native didnt falter all season but instead got better with each meet. Let me also add that while this is the category for best male athlete for the year, it was Dendys best year yet in the triple jump with him breaking his personal bests. I would say that he had a great year on his long jump, which is totally true, but his 2013 season surpassed 2014. Jordan: Dukes may not have to use your words carried the weight of events on his own like Dendy did, but he still competed in six events throughout the season. During the indoor campaign, he ran the 60-meter dash, the 200meter dash and the 4x400 relay. Once the outdoor season kicked off, Dukes ran on both the 4x100 tion to the 100and 200and 400meter dashes. At different points in the year, he competed in three different events on the same day. That puts some serious wear-and-tear on your body. And he got even better once the championship season rolled around. Outside of his 14th-place performance in the 60m prelims at the SEC Indoor Championships, every meet when it counted. Thats coming in clutch. Eden: Dendys season was just as lucrative as Dukes, if not better. The jumper broke the long jump record in the outdoor NCAA meet on June 12. The last time it was broken was in 1993 by Dion Bentley. That seems like a big deal to me. people think of when you mencause hes done some incredible things. Breaking records is just one of them. Also, Dendy is just a junior at UF. If hes breaking records and grabbing national titles like this now, imagine what the upcoming season will be like for him and the Gators. 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, JULY 29, 2014 ALLIGATOR AWARDSWhich Florida male athlete was the best in 2013-2014?Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffDedric Dukes races in the 400-meter dash at the Tom Jones Memorial on April 19 at the Percy Beard Track in Gainesville, Fla. alligator awardsbest male athlete alligator awardsbest female athletevote at alligatorSports.org Shannon Gilroy Lacrosse 86 goals; 106 points; First team All American Kytra Hunter Gymnastics Six perfect 10s (two vault, four Chloe Mann Volleyball NCAA-best .506 hitting percentage; team-best 369 kills Hannah Rodgers Softball SEC Female Athlete of the Year; 30-8 record Kelsey Stewart Softball Team-best .438 batting average69% 17.2% 6.9% 3.4% 3.4% Marquis Dendy Outdoor national title in long and triple jump Dedric Dukes Set personal bests in every event; helped break school 4x400 record Scottie Wilbekin Basketball SEC Player of the Year; averaged 13.4 points Patric Young Basketball SEC Defensive Player of the Year; averaged 6.4 rebounds Taylor Gushue Baseball Second-team All-American; career-high average of .316

His hot streak continued into the summer as he won the singles competition in the 2014 Gainesville ITA Circuits Draw on Monday at the Ring Tennis Complex. Watson, the top seed in the circuit draw, won the circuit by defeating sophomore and teammate Oliver Landert the No. 5 seed in the draw in three sets (2-6, 6-0, 10-5).

Frank Thomas choked back tears, Joe Torre apologized for leaving people out of his speech and Tony La Russa said he felt uneasy. Being enshrined in the Hall of Fame can have those effects, even on the greats. Thomas, pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and managers Bobby Cox, Torre and La Russa were inducted into the baseball shrine Sunday, and all paid special tribute to their families before an adoring crowd of nearly 50,000. Im speechless. Thanks for having me in your club, Thomas said, getting emotional as he remembered his late father. Frank Sr., I know youre watching. Without you, I know 100 percent I wouldnt be here in Cooperstown today. You always preached to me, `You can be someone special if you really work at it. I took that to heart, Pop. Mom, I thank you for all the motherly love and support. I know it wasnt easy. The 46-year old Thomas, the who spent more than half of his time as a designated hitter, batted .301 with 521 home runs and 1,704 RBIs in a 19-year career mostly with the Chicago White Sox. Hes the only player in major league history to log seven straight seasons with a .300 average, 20 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 walks. Ever the diplomat as a manager, Torre somehow managed to assuage the most demanding of owners in George Steinbrenner, maintaining his coolness amid all the Bronx craziness while keeping all those egos in check after taking over in 1996. The result: 10 division titles, six AL pennants and four World Series triumphs in 12 years as he helped restore the luster to baseballs most successful franchise and resurrected his own Torre, the only man to amass more than 2,000 hits (2,342) and win more than 2,000 games as a manager, was last to speak, and in closing delivered a familiar message. Baseball is a game of life. Its not perfect, but it feels like it is, said the 74-year-old Torre, who apologized afterward for forgetting to include the Steinbrenner family in his speech. Thats the magic of it. We are responsible for giving it the respect it deserves. Our sport is part of the American soul, and its ours to borrow just for a while. If all of us who love baseball and are doing our jobs, then those who get the game from us will be as proud to be a part of it as we were. And we are. This game is a gift, and I am humbled, very humbled, to accept its greatest honor. The day was a reunion of sorts for the city of Atlanta. Glavine, Maddux and Cox were part of a remarkable run of success by the Braves. They won an unprecedented 14 straight division titles and made 15 playoff appearances, winning the citys lone major professional sports title. Im truly humbled to stand here before you, Cox said. To Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and I have to mention the third member of the big three John Smoltz I can honestly say I would not be standing here if it werent for you guys. Smoltz, part of the MLB Network telecast of the event and eligible for induction next year, compliment. Glavine started when the Braves won Game 6 to clinch the 1995 World Series, pitching onehit ball over eight innings in a 1-0 victory over Cleveland. And the slender lefty was one of those rare athletes, drafted by the Braves and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League. make, and as a left-handed pitcher I thought that was the thing that would set me apart and make baseball the smartest decision, Glavine said. Of course, I always wondered what would have happened had I taken up hockey. In my mind, since I was drafted ahead of two Hall of Famers in Luc Robitaille and Brett Hull, that obviously means I would have been a Hall of Famer in hockey, too, Glavine chuckled as the crowd cheered. But Im positive I made the right choice. The 48-year-old Maddux went 355-227 with a career ERA of 3.16 in 23 seasons with the Braves, Cubs, Padres and Dodgers and ranks eighth on the career wins list. He won four straight Cy Young Awards in the 1990s and won 15 or more games for 17 straight seasons with his pinpoint control. I spent 12 years in Chicago, 11 in Atlanta, and both places are very special, Maddux said. Without the experiences in both cities, I would not be standing here today. La Russa, who ranks third in career victories as a manager with 2,728, behind only Connie Mack and John McGraw, was chosen manager of the year four times and won 12 division titles, six pennants and three World Series titles in stints with the White Sox, Oakland As and St. Louis Cardinals. La Russa spoke from the heart. There was no written speech. Its uncomfortable because I didnt make it as a player. Not even close, said La Russa, who made his big league debut as a Kansas City Athletics and appeared in just 132 games over six seasons, hitting .199 with no home runs. Since December, I have not been comfortable with it. Theres no way to mention everybody, and that bothers me. From managing parts of two years in the minor leagues, after thinking about all the other young managers who paid a lot of dues in the minor leagues and I get a chance and then I go into the big leagues with three organizations, he said. All that equates to me is Im very, very fortunate. Ive never put my arms around the fact that being really lucky is a Hall of Fame credential.Torre, La Russa, Maddux and more inducted into the HOF Major League Baseball It was a tough format and there was a lot of tennis played.

He looked back to his normal self against Kentucky, running for 176 yards and a touchdown. That was only two weeks before his injury against LSU. Having been cleared since May 1, Jones will see a healthy true freshman season in 2012. Redshirt freshman Adam Lane had a surprisingly decent spring, gaining 64 yards on 12 carries in the Orange and Blue Debut. Because three veterans are in front of Lane on the depth chart, he might not see much action during the season. But he can give quality reps if absolutely necessary. Early enrollee running back Brandon Powell could also see some reps if he has some impressive plays in fall camp. Powell did not participate in spring practice due to a foot injury he suffered while still in high school. He had surgery on the foot shortly after he arrived on campus in the spring. He will likely redshirt given the depth Florida has at running back, but Powell certainly has the talent to see playing time if he impresses early in fall camp. This group of running backs is the deepest Will Muschamp has had in his four years in Gainesville. With his ground-and-pound philosophy and Kurt Roper calling the plays this fall, the Gators could surprisingly be one of the most productive rushing offenses in the conference. as he disrupted the Chicago Bears offense throughout the Week 11 matchup. With Ihedigbo signing with the Lions this offseason, Elam can return to the position he dominated during his time at Florida. As a result, the 22-year-old has the potential to have a breakout season in 2014. Jordan Reed vying for Pro Bowl: Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul is convinced former Gator and fellow teammate Jordan Reed will become a Pro-Bowl tight end in 2014. Thats a Pro Bowl tight end right there, Paul said after practice Friday to the Washington Post. Mark my words: He will be a Pro Bowler. After totaling 499 yards and recording 45 receptions, which ranked second on the team, Reed will have the opportunity to extend his playmaking skills under new Washington head coach Jay Gruden. Although he had an injuryshortened rookie campaign, the former Florida tight end understands the Redskins have big plans for him on offense. However, Reed has decided to not wear a special protective helmet despite suffering a season-ending concussion against the Philadelphia Eagles during Week 11. Mike Pounceys return date extended: Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, who was already going to be sidelined for the beginning of the 2014 season due to hip surgery, is now expected to year. Pounceys rehab from a torn labrum in his hip was originally predicted to last until September. However, the former Florida center is now projected to miss the Because the Dolphins have a bye week in early October, Pouncey would miss seven games if the timetable is correct. Aside from being physically immobile to practice at training camps, Pouncey is also dealing with a legal situinvolving both Mike and Maurkice Pouncey on July 12.
