In a 1991 interview with an Oklahoma newspaper, Williams credited going to a gestalt Marin County high school with helping him discover comedy as a way to bridge the gap he felt between himself and others. Later, at the College of Marin, theater director James Dunn saw the genius in Williams when the young student riffed on stage one night, bringing classmates to tears of laughter. Dunn waked his wife when he got home. You will not have believed what I have just seen, he told her. This young man is going to be somebody one day. Williams through the years raised funds and gave scholarships at the college, and he was a familiar sight riding his bike, running trails, shopping in the supermarkets in Marin. He just loved the Bay Area, Dunn said. It kept him away from the hurly-burly of Hollywood, and he liked that. In 1997, Williams gave a San Francisco-styled eulogy to San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen, whose work had memorialized the citys beauty and characters for decades. Williams read out loud part of Caens own tribute to San Francisco, where newcomers glory in the sights and sounds of a city they suddenly decided to love instead of leave. Im sorry you had to leave, man, but youre still here. See ya, Williams said then.AP BRIEFSOfficers name begins to lift weeklong mystery ST. LOUIS For nearly a week, the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, has been a shadowy figure nameless, faceless and seemingly shielded from the fury that has filled the streets of the town he was sworn to protect. On Friday, the community finally learned his name Darren Wilson, a 28-year-old white officer who has spent the past six years patrolling the St. Louis suburbs, drawing praise from his boss. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson provided the name and said Wilson had not been the focus of any public complaints. He declined to offer many details about Wilsons life or career but commended his police record and his demeanor. He was a gentle, quiet man, Jackson said. He was a distinguished officer. He is, has been, an excellent officer for the police department. Police said Wilson stopped 18-year-old Michael Brown and another young man last Saturday because they were walking down the middle of the street. He ordered them onto the sidewalk. Authorities say one of the men pushed Wilson into his squad car, then physically assaulted him in the vehicle and struggled with him over the officers weapon. At least one shot was fired inside the car before the struggle spilled onto the street, where Wilson shot Brown multiple times, according to police. Wilson is devastated by last weekends events, the police chief said. He never intended for any of this to happen, Jackson added. The killing touched off day after day of violent protests, which were met by an aggressive police response that included officers in riot gear pointing assault rifles, firing rubber bullets and unleashing tear gas. On Thursday, the governor ordered Missouri State Police to take over security in Ferguson. Within hours, the tension in the streets began to ease. Wilson spent the first two years of his career with the police department in nearby Jennings, Missouri, before moving on to Ferguson for the past four years. Fergusons police force is nearly all-white. The towns population is about 70 percent black. Jackson had originally planned to release the name earlier in the week but delayed the announcement, citing safety concerns and death threats against the officer. St. Louis County police and the FBI are conducting separate investigations. The St. Louis County prosecutor said it will probably be weeks before a decision is made on whether to charge Wilson with a crime. Robin Williams: Bay Area made him feel normal SAN FRANCISCO Robin Williams was everywhere in San Francisco, it seemed, as he made a place for himself in the everyday fabric of a city where he once said he passed for normal. The comedian was there to usher a few fellow inhabitants of the Bay Area into life visiting a pediatric ward, unheralded, each year on Christmas Day to welcome newborns to the world. He also ushered friends out of life delivering a boisterous eulogy for an iconic local journalist known as Mr. San Francisco, musing on heaven as a nice bar in the city with a dry martini. In between, Williams had turned out to cheer everything from the Giants to the opening of a local public library. Bay Area people got used to seeing the actor at restaurants and standup clubs, even handing out treats to children at his house, with a topiary dinosaur looming in the yard, at Halloween. After word of his apparent suicide this week at his home in Marin County, residents who had encountered Williams recalled a comedian who didnt always try to be funny but never failed to be gracious. In 1998, Dr. Carrie Chen and colleagues at the University of California-San Francisco hospital had just delivered a premature baby on Christmas Day. And then someone knocked at the door and said Robin Williams was there, Chen said. He looked at this tiny baby, all the tubes and IVs coming out of him. And then he looked each and every one of us in the eye, and personally thanked us for being there on Christmas Day, and for being there for the baby, Chen recalled. The only child of a well-off auto executive, Williams was born in Chicago and Have an event planned? Add it to the Alligators online

The tower is still standing and no bricks have been reported missing, so there must be a lot of sex happening at the good ol University of Florida. whether you just want a refresher in UF Sex 101, here are a few tips for your college sex life: 1. First off, always practice safer sex. You have no excuse not to use a condom they are available for free at the Student Health Care Center, at the GatorWell hut that travels around campus and at the Planned Parenthood on Northwest 13th Street. Protect yourself and your partner against STIs and unplanned pregnancy. STI testing for patients with no symptoms. Theyre discreet, and I can tell you from personal experience that the testing was short and painless, although it does require a urine and blood test. If youre sexually active, you should get tested at least once a year. The clinic can be reached at 352-294-7465 to make an appointment. 3. Twin, extra-long beds suck. Its like they were inward. Spooning is your best bet if you want to sleep. As for sexual positions, go crazy. Just be extra careful if you have a lofted bed I would recommend avoiding any rolling motions. I, along with my partner, once fell out of my bed while hooking up. Bragging to your friends that your sex was so crazy you fell out of the bed sounds like fun, but having a bruise from hitting your dresser is not. 4. If youre in a room where you have a twin, extra-long bed, it means you most likely have a roommate. Plan accordingly, and set boundaries. If possible, set up a signal even if its just a text ahead of time to tell them you have a guest. Be respectful dont sexile your roommate every night. And if they leave the room for you one night, its polite to do the same when they need some privacy. Be mindful of each others schedules, too. If they have a big exam and need a good night of sleep, consider going to your partners place instead. 5. Dont worry about hooking up with people who live Im still alive, dignity intact. If you think that guy in the next room over is cute, go for it. Will people talk about it? Its a possibility, yeah. Will they hear you if you moan really loud? The walls are thin, so yes. Will they knock on your door and offer you a condom, a la Amy Poehler in Mean Girls? Probably not, although that has happened to me. Dont be ashamed sex is natural, healthy and, well, fun although maybe try to keep the noise down. 6. Dont hook up in dorm showers. First of all, shower shoes are not sexy. Second, similar to twin, extra-long beds, dormitory showers are designed in such a way that there is no comfortable position. Dont break your ankle trying to have shower sex just wait until you have an apartment or house. Plus, other people have to use that shower to, you know, get clean. No one wants to shower where his or her roommate has orgasmed. 7. This last tip is cliche, but ultimately the most important: Try new things. College is the perfect time to experiment, as long as youre doing it safely. Youre away from looking students go Gators and college is the ultimate time of self-discovery. Have a threesome. Realize that you like girls... and guys. Try new positions, new kinks, even new locations classroom, anyone? Or if youre feeling really adventurous, plan a quickie for Century Tower and Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior and Alligator columnist. 78 TOTAL VOTES17% YES 83% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgThursdays question: Did you get the bursars email about losing information? Todays question: Are you ready for Gator gamedays? Everyone is lonely, but dont worry:Youll get over itOne night in the middle of October 2011, I called my parents from my late-application triple in Broward Hall. Gainesville was a far cry of my sun-drenched South Florida home the pollen in the oak trees ignited my allergies, the swampy humidity made me homesick for coastal breezes and my tiny room was not much bigger than a 19th century New York City tenement house. My dad was all about it when I told them I wanted to leave UF. Of course you can leave, he said. Of course you can come talk about it over Winter Break. Sure enough, by December, itd passed, and Spring was better. Every semester, in fact, was better. Now that I only have place. To its credit, UF does all it can to make sure that you, reader, dont feel lonely. But its inevitable there are only so many club meetings you can attend, so many residence hall preplanned activities, so many fraternities and sororities and study versity of Florida is not home. The food in the dining halls is no match for moms lasagna. The friends youve just met in your like your friends back home. Your boyfriend went to Duke; your girlfriend went to UC Berkeley. Youre lonely. Theres a lot of great advice that your parents and friends and RAs can give you when that middle-of-the-semester homesickness rises, but the best I can give you is this: Wait. Adjusting to college life is a complete shock to the senses, and its OK to feel homesick or caught up in sadness. But it passes with time, as you accumulate friends and experiences (and allergy medications). The second-best advice I can give you is to talk to someone about it. One of the most liberating moments I had that Fall semesId called my mom and dad like a big baby. Gavin, who would eventually become my best friend/roommate/Chipotle rideor-die, said something Id never even considered: Everyone is lonely, everyone is homesick and everyone is acting as if they arent. So dont be afraid to say something even if theyre a new friend. mester, Id met and befriended the girl who is now my roommate. I joined the staff of the Alligator. I left that tiny corner in Broward Hall. Itll happen for you too, reader, but not right now. For now, atre Strike Force audition or that rugby practice or that Alligator your lecture hall. Call your mom or dad or sibling or favorite high school teacher.

SANTIAGO RAMIREZInterfraternity Council Director of Public RelationsSantiago.ramirez93@live.comThe decision on whether to join a fraternity or not is a very common question for college students of all ages. Fraternities and sororities offer an extremely wide that allow them to have an easier transition at the University of Florida. The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at the University of Florida seeks out to help all of their members in becoming wellrounded students through community service, campus involvement, academic opportunities and lifelong friends. With so many members, the students in Greek organizations have planted roots in almost every organization on campus. Kason Green, a senior and member of the student honor and service society, Florida Blue Key, said, Looking back, I would not have been able to be as involved as I am now if it wasnt for the opportunities presented to me through my Greek organization. Not only do fraternities and sororities provide the individual with the means to get involved but they also enable the individual to give back to the community. The Greek community has raised hunlocal and national causes through various philanthropies and given thousands of community service hours in the last few years alone. Last year, members of the Interfraternity Council were able to raise more than $1 million for charity, contributed more than 25,000 hours of community service and averaged the overall Greek GPA to be higher than the reported all university GPA. Greek organizations also offer networking options for internships during college and jobs after graduation. Fraternities at UF date back as far as 1884. With that being said, the alumni network is massive. Alumni recognize the character that Greek organizations build because they too experienced it and are much more willing to hire those who come from the same fraternity or sorority as they do. When deciding whether to join or not, the answer is very clear. Greek organizalifelong friends and mentors, opportunities to get involved and to give back to the community, and great networking opportunities for jobs in and after college. They develop strong character, many great memories, and a great way to leave a lasting, positive legacy at the University of Florida. But what makes IFC so unique is that a business fraternity, service fraternity, or even an academic fraternity. IFC chapters are social fraternities that focus on all areas of business, service, academics and involvement. Last Fall, more than 1,400 students registered with IFC for recruitment. This year, the Interfraternity Council hopes to increase that number. IFC Fall Recruitment will begin Sunday, Sept. 7 with an orientation and a kickoff barbecue. IFC aims to help students make one of the best decisions of their lives. That means empowering them through academics, involvement, social activities, and community service.

ADRIANA BARBATAlligator Writerabarbat@alligator.orgJust because Library West is the go-to study spot for many UF students doesnt mean you have to join the masses. If youre looking for a spot to kill time between classes, or youve gotten sick of studying in the same place, there are plenty of other options around campus. Pugh Hall Pugh Hall, where you picked classes during Preview, is usually quiet. It has tables, rocking chairs and couches, as well as pods with padded benches and electrical outlets. Theres also a P.O.D. Market downstairs for when you need a snack. Careful, though the benches look tempting to sleep on, but signs warn that students found sleeping will be asked to leave. Smathers Library Smathers Library, found off the Plaza of the Americas to the right of Library West, is a good option for those who need absolute silence to study. Booths seat two people, so you can bring a (quiet) study buddy. But, there is only one row of booths, so get there early. Reitz Union The Reitz Union, another popular option, has something that a lot of other places dont have much of: diversity. Theres a quiet area tables, a noisy food court with tables and booths, a few couches in the usually calm UF Bookstore and a bunch of booths on the ground head to the free printing lab downstairs. Architecture & Fine Arts Library This library, located near Little Arts Building A, has some unusual features. In the middle stand several two-level cubbies reminiscent of bunk beds, with huge desks, cushioned benches and walls for privacy. Tables and computer stations are also available. Some people like to watch football in the stadium. Some like to study there. Few people probably study at the stadium toward the beginning of the semester because of the weather, but once it improves, it might be worth checking out. Marston Science Library This library, near the Hub, isnt as quiet as some of the other libraries. It has big tables for those who like to spread out or come with groups. It also has computers and some science textbooks available for a two-hour checkout. Its convenient for online classes that require expensive books.

MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION, 19 SEAN STEWART-MUNIZAlligator Writersstewart-muniz@alligator.orgYoure 18, your parents just bought you a hot new ride and you know youre about to be the cool freshman with a car. But while cruising on campus, you run into signs demanding parking decals and threatening The biggest rule to remember about parking on campus is timing. All rules and regulations on who can park where are null and void by 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and nonexistent on weekends. Keep in mind that this doesnt guarantee a spot. When campus activities start up (campus gets incredibly packed on gamedays and becomes a needle-in-a-haystack situation. For off-campus students, parking depends on where you live. Apartment buildings usually have designated spots for tenants, and houses have their accompanying driveways. (See story below) Commuting to campus is another story. Decals are required unless you want to park in midtown by some of the local restaurants parking lot and bike to campus. The Reitz Union parking garage offers pay-for-time parking spots that range from 45 minutes for $1, 2 hours for $3 and all-day parking for $5. Be warned: The 2-hour and all-day spots are almost always so dont bank on them being there when you pull in. My advice: The decal is worth every penny you will save on $30 and go up by $5 increments you a vehicle impoundment. Ten tickets and your campus parking privileges are axed for the whole semester. And for those students who are staying in residence halls who dont want to leave their sweet Mazda 2 that totally doesnt smell like old McDonalds at home, oncampus parking decals, priced at $77 per semester, give you parking privileges in designated lots around campus. Parking on campus is dicey. Without the proper decals or luck, swimming in parking tickets. Be smart and remember: Its not worth the risk. KRISTAN WIGGINSAlligator Staff can be a hassle. Now learn the intricacies of parking, and its consequences, off campus. When parking off campus, one thing to keep in mind is to stay aware of your surroundings. Check for signs indicating times and decal requirement. Last thing you want is to park on the street to go to a house party only to come back to an empty space. Most residential zones around campus require a parking decal, which are $50 to $100 per year. These are usually given out by your apartment complex, but they can be purchased from the city directly. When it comes to parking at a friends complex, make sure to ask them if you need a parking pass to park in the guest parking as simple as them writing a note for you to leave on your dash. There is also metered parking along some of the main roads such as West University Avenue and off of Main Street, which costs 25 cents to 50 cents per hour. Parking in one of the lots around town is the safest bet to remembering where your car is and not getting towed for illegal parking. When parking goes wrong, there are two types of parking youll have to deal with. Normal towing is when a property owner sees an illegally parked car, calls the tow company and has the car removed. The other type of towing is called roam towing. This is the kind that will frustrate you. If there is a sign posted that says roam towing, that means the property owner has contracted the towing company to allow the tow truck drivers to look around for illegally parked cars, which can then tow the car without contacted the property owner. The fee to recover a towed car was recently changed from $76 to $100. Both this and the practice of roam towing is hotly debated in City Commission. UF Student Body President Cory Yeffet voiced his concerns when the resolution passed, especially considering the predatory nature of roam towing. pretty high as is, he said, according to Alligator archives.

20, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014LOCAL STEVEN KATONA Alligator Staff Writerskatona@alligator.orgWhen youre in the Southeastern Conference, nothing beats Saturdays in the Swamp and tailgating, but for students new to UF, what you dont know can hurt you. If you fell asleep at Preview, or just didnt pay attention, now is your chance to learn about some of the laws here on campus when it comes to tailgating. UPD Lt. Alton McDilda talked with the Alligator about some of the things UF students of all ages should keep in mind this football season. Starting at 6 a.m., tailgating can begin and it needs to be within the designated areas, he said. Some of the popular designated areas to tailgate are: Norman Hall, Broward Hall, the Stephen C. OConnell Center, in front of Ben um Road and around the Plaza of the Americas. So that means that starting at 6 a.m., tailgaters and students can start setting up their tailgating spots, and people who are at least 21 can start drinking. If youre under 21, here are some of the things to be aware of if you plan to drink on campus: Its a misdemeanor offense. You could be arrested at the scene, but you will most likely get a notice to appear in court. Depending on the judge, you or even jail time. Students caught drinking may also have to appear in front of a Student Conduct Committee thats at UF. But McDilda said, If a student goes (to the courthouse) and pleads no contest or guilty, its usually just But for students and tailgaters who are 21 and older, there really isnt too much to worry about. McDilda said that they should just be aware that you cannot leave your tailgating area with an open container. We dont want the appearance of everyone drinking all over campus, he said. Where it becomes a problem is when people try open containers of alcohol on the thoroughfares and sidewalks. Anyone caught leaving the tailgating area with an open container could be asked to pour the drink out, or could be given a warning. take down the persons name and keep track of how many drinking offenses he or she has. Repeat offenders could be banned from drinking on campus. However, McDilda said that it needs to be made clear that thats UPDs policy. When youre on campus theres one process, and when youre in the city theres a different process, he said. So be mindful of where you are when tailgating. Some of the tailgating areas, like the Stephen C. OConnell Center, are right next to city roads. McDilda said if people are found walking on city property with an open container, they may be issued a civil citation. STEVEN KATONA Alligator Staff Writerskatona@alligator.orgIts about 2:30 a.m., youre out on the town and you have a good buzz goin. If there is any wisdom I can impart to you at this exact moment, freshly picked Gators, its: DONT FORGET THE LATER GATOR! OK, Im good now. But for real, guys and gals, one of the quickest ways to get sober is an hourlong walk home after a great night. Take it from me, you dont want that. tell you about one of the greatest night services we have here the notoriously dubbed Later Gator. The Later Gator is a Wednesday-throughSaturday-night bus system, provided by Gainesvilles Regional Transit System, that transports riders safely to and from downtown, campus and beyond. And because its meant to prevent drunk driving, you dont routes A, B, C, D and F and each route has its own starting and stopping times. So be sure to familiarize yourself with the schedule and download the mobile apps: TransLoc or TransLoc Rider. The apps use GPS locators that allow you to track your ride down to the minute and even see how full the bus is. Now that the information session is out of the way, lets get down to brass tacks. Traditions die hard, and at UF theres this crazy thing called the Later Gator Flip that seems to have stuck stronger than cheese on a skillet. UF students, typically inebriated, will grab the handrails, pick up their feet and twirl backward while the bus is moving. As fun as it is to hear the whole bus chanting Later Gator know that no crime goes unpunished. RTS spokesman Chip Skinner wrote in an email that anyone caught performing this stunt can be removed from the bus or trespassed from the bus for up to a year. That is just not worth it, yall. Be mature and just obey the rules. People should also refrain from taking pictures of the bus operator or engaging them in conversation while they are driving, Skinner wrote. This is for our operator and passengers safety. For more information, Skinner said he encourages everyone to check out RTSs Rules of the Road video on its Facebook page. Alas, here are some parting tips on this week before the Fall semester starts: Dont be the person to get so drunk they pass out or vomit on the bus. If its after dark, make sure you stand out to the bus drivers. If they dont see you, youre walking. And most importantly, dont be afraid to talk to the person sitting next to you. Thats what college is all about: making connections. People should also refrain from taking pictures of the bus operator or engaging them in conversation while they are driving.

Toppings are pretty standard, ranging from pepperoni to veggies to meats. Where do I sit? you might ask yourself. You dont.

It also offers calzones, stromboli, subs and pasta, as well as a kids menu, making it a familyfriendly joint.

STACEY MARQUISAvenue WriterYouve adopted a puppy, and life is blissful. You spend all day taking pictures and getting Internet karma from its little face. You spend all of your money on toys and designer puppy food, doting on the creature like a proud parent. Then it happens. The pup turns evil. It destroys your carpet, tears up your brand new shoes and chews on one of your only pieces of furniture. Panic ensues, and you cant remember what life was like before this little demon took it over. Im happy to say that there is help. All of these things happened to me for weeks on end, and I didnt know what I was doing wrong: I hated me and was out to get me. Then I found Cesars Way. Cesar Milan may be overexposed, but he is for a reason: His methods work. At 3 1/2 months old, my puppy can go to the bathroom outside and walk on a leash along with several other commands, which makes me feel like I have control over my life again. Here is what we learned. How to go to the bathroom outside In my research, I read something from Cesar that really stuck with me: A dog who understands that you, as the pack leader, own the space in which he lives will respect your asserted authority while dog training. When we were going outside, I was not acting like a pack leader. Instead of giving my puppy direction, I let her run wild in the yard for as long as she wanted. I didnt project a Cesar insists on, and I didnt provide any consequences for misbehavior. Now, if she has an accident inside, I immediately take her to the yard, on a leash, and wait for her to go. I dont acknowledge her until she has gone to the bathroom at least once, and I immediately tell her shes a good girl when she does. I also take her to the same exact spot in the yard each time. If she doesnt go to the bathroom after ten minutes, I put her in her crate for ten minutes without looking at her. changes. Shes not completely acciit wont be long before she is. How to walk on a leash In Alachua County, dogs must be secured by a leash when they are off of their owners property, according to the Alachua County Animal Services Ordinance section 72.12, so leash training should be one of the puppy. Cesars idea of pack leadership is even more important when it comes to walking your dog on a leash. On energy a puppy feels is his or her mothers calm, assertive energy, and that it will respond positively to energy that mimics that for the rest of its life. To get your puppy to behave and move forward on a walk, then, you must exude the energy that your puppy wants to respond to. By standing tall and alert, looking forward, your puppy will be obligated to follow your lead and walk forward with you. There will be constant distractions mine enjoys picking up every stick that she passes on the sidewalk but you cant indulge them. I just keep walking forward, often without looking at my puppy directly, and she follows me. If your puppy is having a hard time behaving on the walk, Cesar suggests bringing family members or a more experienced dog with you on the walk to ease tension. Once my puppy learned how to do these two things, training became easier. She now knows how to sit, shake and stay in her crate without whining. The biggest thing to remember about training a puppy is that they want to respond strong leadership and they enjoy learning new things: You just have to be the one to take follow.

Training puppies for apartment life MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue WriterCongratulations! Youve been accepted into the University of Florida. Too bad you cant legally partake in what some consider an integral part of the college experience drinking. A recent post on the popular YikYak app said, Being under 21 in New York is like being 4 foot tall at an amusement park. The same could also be said about UF. Being underage doesnt just mean that you cant drink legally in public, but you also wont be able to get into some of the popular bars here in Gainesville. But, if you dont mind paying $7 to get into a bar where you cant drink and theres no space to dance, then Midtown is the place to be. The 21-and-up bars in Midtown are Fat Daddys, Balls, Rowdy Reptile and Salty Dog Saloon. This leaves you with Grog, 101 Cantina, Shuck and Envy/Gator City. Keep in mind, the Alligator doesnt condone underage drinking, as it is against the law. And for those of age, here is a quick rundown of Gainesvilles open container law: Dont do it. Check out Gainesville City Ordinance 4-4b for more information. For those who choose a more sober route to going out, then do not go to 101 Cantina. Theres hardly any space to dance, theres no DJ and everyone else around you is getting uncomfortably wasted. It may be free, but other time. Grog, on the other hand, is a great place for under-21 partygoers. The best night is Wednesday because its ladies night. Although you cant drink, you can still enjoy the music. Grog plays a little bit of everything: rap, house and even some reggaeton. The best part of your night will be watching the drunk people who dont know Spanish try to sing along to Daddy Yankees Gasolina. The only issue with Grog is when it gets packed, it also gets really hot. Youll end up making multiple trips to the bathroom to wipe your face so you dont look like some type of lake monster. Envy, which is attached to Gator City, is fun on Fridays. Everyone goes for the 25-cent wells, but the music isnt half bad either. However, sometimes Envy can get a little bit ratchet. Shuck is not so bad, either. Its outside, which means you wont be sweating buckets like you would in Grog or Envy. The downside is that you run the chance of getting some serious mosquito bites. Being under 21 in college isnt all bad. Stick to these tips and tricks to having a good time in Midtown, and count down the days until you can order your own grown-up drink. Not 21? Its OK Midtown still has bars for you

KRISTAN WIGGINSAvenue Writerkwiggins@alligator.orgSo, new student, after trying dining hall food at Preview, youve decided it isnt up to snuff compared with what youd imagine is Le Cordon Bleu-standard meals you get at home. Lucky for you, you dont have to settle for a diet made up entirely of cookies, pizza and study-break Starbucks (unless you want to of course, but I dont recommend it. You also dont want to eat an entire can of cinnamon rolls for dinner trust me.) The most important thing for those living in dorms or in tiny apartments that may or may not have full kitchens (shout-out to studio residents: You have the toughest job ahead of you) to remember is to make the best of what you have. You cant expect to make magic out of your cheap Ikea pots and pans, but you also dont need highend things to make great food. Here are a few tips to get you started: 1. For students in residence halls: Know what appliances you can and cant have in your rooms. Theres a detailed list on UFs housing website, but in general, you can have appliances that dont have exposed heating elements. This includes rice cookers, slow cookers and microwaves, but it does not include hot plates, toaster ovens in the shared kitchen. The last thing you want is to burn down 2. That being said, simplify your tools. You dont need a million niche appliances and cookware. You can get by with a decent heavy-bottom pot and a mediumsize saute pan. (If youre into baking, one cookie sheet and cake pan.) That breakfast sandwich maker you thought was a brilliant idea at the time will only give you guilt stares from your closet if you dont force yourself to make a sandwich for every meal. 3. Work with your limited space. When it comes to what groceries to buy, say no to large quantities. I know logic tells you buying in bulk will save you money, but with mini fridges and a late application triples, you just dont have the space. So buy what you know you like in small quantities so nothing goes to waste. 4. Pick things that wont get boring. Chicken and eggs may take up a lot of space, but they are some of the most useful ingredients to keep on hand. Find a few go-to recipes, but also go out of your comfort zone by searching for more recipes online or asking your neighbors for their favorites. 5. For studios only: If you only have a microwave and a fridge, the best investment is a couple coiled hot plates (or ideally one induction hot plate) and a convection toaster oven that goes up to 450 degrees. This will let you cook most things, even most baked goodies. Fair warning: Cakes and cookies are no problem, but baking savory things like chicken or a pasta bake is going to take a while. 6. Safety safety safety: To repeat, know gers intact. Always unplug appliances when you arent using them. Be mindful of how hot things are and use protection (that rule works in all walks of life). Practice safe knife skills such as curling your sharp (you have to use more force with dull knives, leading to more accidents). And last but not least, just dont eat questionable food: when in doubt, throw that rank Chinese food out. mets.

MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Freshman Rhamat Alhassan brings height and talent to the UF volleyball team. Read the story on page 46NEW STUDENT EDITIONTHE RALLYAnd so we have arrived at the million dollar question pertaining to the 2014 Florida football season: How many games is this team going to win, and how will it perform in general? Summer alligatorSports editor Jonathan Czupryn and assistant Richard Johnson got together to rally in order to give new University of Florida students a preview of whats to come. Jonathan: The Florida Gators not only year, but they also endured the longest offseason the program has had in more than 20 years. In the 260 days since Florida State closed the books on Will Muschamps third year at UF, both the players and the coaches have been grilled on expectations for the upcoming season and what it might take to avoid another disaster. No team is more anxious to start the year than the Gators, who kick off their 2014 campaign on Aug. 30. With a new-look offense, a youthfully driven defense and a motivation to move past an ugly 4-8 stain on the program, Florida has a good chance to play spoiler in the Southeastern Conferences Eastern Division. The Gators were hind South Carolina and Georgia by the media, but the league to accurately predict. Only twice since the inception of SEC Media Days have the journalists correctly predicted the eventual conference champion in each case UF was the favorite. This time last year, you would have looked foolish picking a 3-9 Auburn squad to represent the Western Division in the conference championship in Atlanta. You would have looked mental picking the Tigers to reach the national championship. Now its easy to look at Gus Malzahns team and say, Why cant UF do that? But that might cause some incredibly lofty expectations for Muschamp and company in 2014. Dont use Auburns 2013 season as the benchmark for struggling teams, but instead use it as an example of best-case scenario. Theres no reason why the Gators shouldnt make progress in 2014. Should we see an Auburn-like turnaround in Gainesville? Doubtful, but Florida certainly has the motivation and enough young talent to at least get some attention now in How successful will the Florida football team be in 2014?

No, Neals bumps and bruises come from a scooter accident he had a few weeks before camp started with his girlfriend Kytra Hunter a Florida gymnast on the back of it. Motorized scooters have been one of Floridas toughest opponents during coach Will Muschamps tenure in Gainesville. All-American punter Kyle Christy fell off one leading to a shoulder injury that forced him to have surgery in the 2013 offseason. Offensive lineman Tyler Moore crashed on his prior to the Georgia game in 2013, breaking his right arm and sidelining him for the rest of the season. Defensive lineman Joey Ivie also cut his foot during a scooter accident prior to the Florida State game in 2013.

Since Neal is alright, Muschamp was able to laugh the situation off. He had a tire slip this summer. His girlfriend is a gymnast. Shes a much better athlete than him, Muschamp said. Nothing happened to Shes a lot better athlete. I should have recruited her. Neal echoed Muschamps notion that Hunter was the better athlete on the scooter that day. She like landed and skid on her stomach and kicked her legs back or something like that and bounced up, Neal said. I like tumbled and hit every part of my body but she came out with a little scratch and I came out with every scratch that you can think of. When Neal is on two legs instead of two wheels, hes the best safety on the team, according to Muschamp. He lends stability to a secondary group that outside of Vernon Hargreaves is full of inexperience, inconsistency and injury. It means a lot to me to be considered that, Neal said. But Im not going to think about that too much because you know its good to think of yourself as an underdog and continue to compete every single day. Neal says the attitude of competitiveness is one every team should have the want to get better day in and day out should be a constant. He says this year his effort has gotten better as has his play recognition often times for younger players the game tends to slow down in their second season. The biggest thing he learned last year watching from the sideline was effort as well as the need to be technically sound. Hes learned to bring (his) arms when getting ready to tackle someone, which is a technique that minimizes the launching of the body that has become such a taboo in football nationwide and something that referees are calling more and more thanks to college footballs targeting rule. He has an image on Floridas team not of just another Gator that had a mishap on a moped but as a heavy hitter, maybe even following in the footsteps of Reggie Nelson, Major Wright and Matt Elam at the safety position. I just love to play football, Neal said. And Im a physical player and you know the hits come and Ive kinda built that image on the team as a hitter so thats just what I do. Editors Note: A version of this story ran online August 13.


MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION, 37Florida faces tough task of facing Bama, FSU on the road the Eastern Division. Richard: The Gators picked a pretty solid time to have a rebuilding year in terms of how the conference looks on paper (few proven quarterbacks, few offenses that appear able to put up 45 points on a whim) but that doesnt mean theyre going to have one, at least in terms of win-loss record. The weird thing about where Florida football is right now is that a four-win improvement over last year could still get Will The Eastern Division may be set up to win now with only one sure thing in my mind (South Carolina) and a beatable Georgia team that is only going to get better as the season nears its end, and as long as it can stay healthy. The problem Florida has is its Western Division schedule rotation. The Gators didnt draw Arkansas as their rotating opponent. Instead, they get Alabama and then there is the always vulnerable LSU. Sure the Tigers lost 800 starters to the NFL, but head coach Les Miles has proven that hes going to put a double-digit win or high water. So that leaves UF with a schedule that seems like it comes prepackaged with four losses Alabama, South Carolina, LSU and Florida State and a maybe defeat to Georgia. Congratulations, youve got the attention you seek with a team thatll probably get a decent bowl matchup, but youve also got a team second or third in its division that doesnt strike much optimism in the heart of its fanbase. The thing with Florida is because the fanbase is so slaveishly devoted to a team that puts up points, its not about how much this particular team wins or loses, but more importantly what it looks like doing so. Lose to South Carolina at home but in a 38-31 contest where Jeff Driskel throws for 350 yards, and maybe the tide of the fanbase will turn. Jonathan: The SEC is no longer a league where the schedule comes with pre-packaged wins or losses. How can South Carolina pencil in a victory against Florida when Stadium? The Gamecocks needed interception to knock off thirdstring quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and the Gators last year in Columbia. Is it that far fetched to think against USC this year? Jeff Driskel is healthy, Kurt Roper brings a new offense and Muschamp is coaching to keep his job. That doesnt sound like a team that is ready to be counted out. Oh, and Florida also gets LSU in The Swamp as well. Even when Muschamp was out a starting quarterback and running back, the Tigers never really created any real separation. Les Miles offense scored 17 points against the Gators D. LSU came into the Florida matchup averaging about 45 points per game. Although wins on the road against FSU and Bama are far less likely than taking two away from USC and LSU, Florida should not be considered a guaranteed W for any team. The weapons the Gators have are still SEC-caliber players yearning to make the program relevant again. Dont underestimate this teams hunger to win. Read the rest of the story online at RALLY, from page 35Julian Pinilla / Alligator StaffWill Muschamp looks on during practice on Aug. 9 at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. Muschamp, entering his fourth year as head coach, faces a tough schedule including road games against Alabama and Florida State. However, the Gators get to face off against LSU and South Carolina in Gainesville.


38, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014PLAYERS MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyHave no fear, the 2014 Florida football season is practically here. With just 12 days until Florida kicks off its season against Idaho, here are a few players to keep an eye on this year that you might not know. Jake McGee, tight end: Floridas offense got a big boost when tight end Jake McGee announced his transfer to Florida from Virginia. In three seasons that included 36 games for the Cavaliers, McGee recorded 71 catches for 769 yards. He making 14 of his 43 total catches last season on third down. McGees 6-foot-6, 255-pound frame can serve as a reliable target for quarterback Jeff Driskel this season. Treon Harris, quarterback: Youre probably wondering why Im talking about a quarterback who isnt named Jeff Driskel for this season. But dont be surprised if Harris is used in some short-yardage situations in 2014. Hes a quarterback that can be used in some packages on third or second-and-short instances. Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will be able to use Harris speed effectively this season. Demarcus Robinson, wide receiver: Robinsons name is probably familiar to you as he is entering his sophomore year. However Robinson was limited to just seven games last year due to suspensions. The suspensions were a result of Robinson violating team rules. Since that time, Robinson has had no conduct issues and had a very impressive spring at receiver. He matching his total from the 2013 down in the Orange and Blue Debut. If Robinson can continue to keep out of trouble, he is primed for a breakout season. Jalen Tabor and Duke Dawson, cornerback: Two early enrollees are given the opportunity to start at cornerback opposite of Vernon Hargreaves III thanks to the departures of defensive backs Marcus Roberson and Loucheiz Purifoy. Both Tabor and Dawson are battling for the spot at fall camp, and at this point there isnt much separation between the two. Tabor stepped on campus as the No. 3-ranked overall corner in the 2014 class and has consistent instincts at the position that can earn him the start as a true freshman. Dawson came in as a four-star corner and has seen reps at the nickel spot as well. Both guys have the potential come in and make immediate impacts early.McGee, Robinson among players ready to make an impact

UF HAS LARGEST ROSTER SINCE AT LEAST 1996. EDEN OTEROAlligator Staff Writer@edenotero_lCoach Mary Wise has many reasons to be excited about this years volleyball squad. With one of the deepest rosters since at least 1996, the tallest signee in Florida history in 6-foot-4 freshman Rhamat Alhassan and a No. 10 ranking in the AVCA Top-25 preseason poll, the 2014 campaign is looking to be one of the most promising yet. And while preseason training has only been in session for a few days, seniors Holly Pole, Maddy Monserez and Taylor Unroe are basking in the glory of what it means to be a senior. However, what makes this senior squad different is their positions. Unusually enough, they all play the back line. Pole, originally a walk-on in 2011, has been key to the Gators back line as a defensive specialist. In 2012, she played in 32 of 33 games and made a season-high 14 digs in a win over LSU to clinch the Southeastern Conference. She completed the 2013 season with 224 digs and started in 14 of 32 matches, seeing time in all 108 sets during her junior year. While the Ocala, Fla., native didnt have the same experience as other recruits on the court during her journey to Florida, coach Mary Wise sees her as a necessary component in bringing the back line together. Holly arguably has the highest volleyball IQ on our team, Wise said. Holly is constantly coaching up her teammates and I think when its all said and done, some may say Holly may be one of the best walk-on players weve ever had it would be fair, but I think at the end of the day we can say Holly is one of the best defensive players weve ever had. Joining Pole as a defensive specialist is Monserez. In 2012 Monserez started 32 of 33 games and she recorded a career high 16 digs in Floridas sweep against Tulsa in season with 113 digs and started in six of 29 matches. While Monserez and Pole play as defensive specialists on the back line, Unroe holds the libero position. ished 2013 as the SEC Libero of the Year, leading the SEC in aces (41) and being ninth in the conference in digs (415). With the three preparing themthe 2014 season, Unroe said the team is just looking to become better as a unit. We always want to have the best season possible, do our part in the gym, focus on our side of the net and just do the things we can control to get the farthest in the SEC and the (NCAA) Tournament, Unroe said. We just want to focus on ourselves. However, Wise is less focused on the future and more focused on the here and now. The coach entering her 24th season at UF is using the preseason to bring together the team and is pleased with her seniors leadership. I think if you were to describe this senior class of Maddy, Holly and Taylor, it would be they are the worker bees, Wise said. The amount of work they have put in over the past four years to improve their game and to make each other better . They all play the same position. Its very unique, they are looking at competition as bringing their best to make the other person better as well. 40, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffCoach Mary Wise reacts after a play during Floridas 3-0 win against Alabama on Nov. 15 in the OConnell Center.

Florida mens basketball achieved greatness last season. A 30-game win streak. An undefeated record in the OConnell Center for the second straight season. A perfect run through the Southeastern Confersince 2007. And even though Floridas regular-season debut against William & Mary is still a little less than three months away, one thing will be apparent when the Gators take to the OConnell Center come November: The team you see will not look the same as last year. Gone are UFs four seniors Casey Prather, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Patric Young who accounted for 57.9 percent of Floridas offensive production, 51.1 percent of its rebounds and a .501 shooting clip. Gone is the winningest class in program history, accruing 120 victories over its four-year run. But coach Billy Donovan still has talent on his team as he enters his 19th season as head coach. He returns valuable playmakers, players capable of making another deep postseason run. Shooting guard Michael Frazier II, UFs lone returning starter from last season, looks poised to have another solid campaign heading into his third year at UF. The Tampa native paced the Gators in three-pointers (118) 11 of which came in record-setting fashion against South Carolina on March 4 and shooting clip from beyond the arc (.447). Dorian Finney-Smith, the 2013 SEC Sixth Man of the Year, should see more starting time in his second year at UF. The redshirt junior and Virginia Tech transfer led the Gators in rebounds per game (6.7) and was the lone player to average more than 20 minutes per contest off the bench leaving the Hokies. Kasey Hill and Chris Walker Floridas two McDonalds AllAmericans from its 2013 recruiting class will develop heading into their second year under Donovan. behind Wilbekin at point guard. the year by averaging 3.1 rebounds and 5.5 points per game on a 40.7percent shooting clip. Walker, who was ineligible during the fall semester, was held out of due to an NCAA suspension and saw limited action, averaging just 4.8 minutes per game. But in those 87 minutes where he wasnt on the bench, Walker bounds and eight blocks. Add in a healthy Eli Carter (right leg) and Dillon Graham (bone spurs in hip), who sat out last season, as well as a duo of transfers in Alex Murphy from Duke and John Egbunu from USF, and Donovan is poised to have a capable team. The season wont be easy, with a road match against Kansas, a rematch against national champion UConn and the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament at Paradise Island, Bahamas where Florida could possibly compete against 2014 Elite Eight Teams Wisconsin and UCLA back-to-back peppered in the non-conference slate in addition to an 18-game SEC slate. 42, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffBilly Donovan looks down the court prior to Floridas 62-52 win against Dayton in the Elite Eight Round of the NCAA Tournament at FedExForum in Memphis, Tenn., on April 5.

MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION, 43 Football Season Schedule Date Opponent Time Location


44, NEW STUDENT EDITION, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 on-camera appearance (something Twitter didnt take too kindly to). If youre looking for the bastion of journalistic integrity, I feel like youre in the wrong place. SEC Network president Justin Connolly told me at SEC Media Days that the network isnt in place to do hardhitting investigative journalism work, and its calling card is on the passion and pride of the conference anyway. Oh, and Missouri graduate John Anderson whose day job is to be a SportsCenter anchor dropped a we too when referring to the Tigers during a live shot. 7:00 8:00 p.m.: Slive opens the hour dipping into his brag bag, with a subtle lower-third graphic saying that the SECs 14 member schools have won 72 NCAA titles during his tenure and distributed more than $300 million to each school in the recent revenue distribution cycle. Hes doing an interview with Musberger, and the set appears straight off of a PBS special with the average age decades north of AARP eligibility. Suddenly, Kentuckys basketball coach John Calapari is standing in front of an aquarium in the Bahamas. Yes, its as weird as it sounds. Not only is the Wildcats headman a bit tanner than when I last saw him in Arlington, Texas, during the Final Four, but for some reason theres something other than football being shown on the network. I didnt see that in the masthead and Ive followed this network since its initial announcement. I jest of course but covering cusable than waiting 50 minutes to interview Steve Spurrier for the wrong. 8:00 9:00 p.m.: Were starting to come off the rails here with SEC Now as we venture into the this show is getting way too long part of the program. Exhibit A: theres an analyst mounting a horse. Theres a suitable amount of UF Joe Tessitore pair up for a fatal-4way with Gators gymnast Bridget Merritt. Later in the hour, Tess and Tebow double team coach Will Muschamp in an interview and go back and forth about how the team will do this season, but also how Muschamp then an assistant coach at Auburn devised a gameplan to stop Tebow in 2007. The banter was good, but there was a hilarious clip shown of a much younger Will Muschamp holding back former Tigers head coach Tommy Tuberville as the latter blew his top at a referee. Little did Muschamp know that four years later hed be doing the same on the opposite sideline. Im not sure what you can glean in terms of total performance from a shows opener that is three times as long as the show will regularly run. I want to see it in the dead of July with no football to hype up. I want to see it when a scandal breaks. And I want to see it share more original stories than the one they did Thursday. I do think Dari Nowkhah is very strong in the main chair, which comes after being with ESPN for 10 years. His back and forth with Calapari was very choppy but I think that may have had a bit to do with the satellite delay between Charlotte, N.C., and the Bahamas. His co-anchor, Maria Taylor, seems talented but needs a bit more polish. She was awkward at times, like when she said the wrong title for Paul Finebaums book and had Marcus Spears and Booger McFarland are going to be a lot of fun as analysts, but I think Greg McElroy has the makings of a really big asset for ESPN moving forward. Hell get games in the future, and hell knock them out of the park. Tim Tebow also has a lot of room to grow. Hes a bit robotic in his approach on-screen for my liking, and like I mentioned earlier, I dont mind him dropping a we about his old school. He received a birthday cake on camera, which now makes it the second time an ESPN platform has wished him happy birthday on live television. The network infamously did the same a few years ago in an awful Tebowmania daytime SportsCenter trainwreck. There were a couple technical issues as well, sound dropping out on a few microphones and a clunky live micd up segment with Missisippi State coach Dan Mullen in which the Bulldogs head man barely said anything. 9:00 10:00 p.m.: hour No. 4 off with the notion that there are two certainties as it pertains to the SEC Storied documentary, The Stars Aligned: notable Kentucky basketball fan Ashley Judd is crazy, and country singer Charlie Daniels is awesome. Judd made my roommate bust out laughing as she spoke about crying every SEC, from page 35SEC schools have won a total of 72 NCAA titles since 2002SEE SEC, PAGE 45


MONDAY, AUGUST 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, NEW STUDENT EDITION, 45AP Photo Tim Tebow answers a question during an interview on the set of ESPNs new SEC Network in Charlotte, N.C., on Aug. 5. Tebow, a former Gator, is an analyst for the network, which debuted on Thursday. Tim Tebow has time to develop more natural on-camera skillstime she enters Rupp Arena and I could watch Daniels giant white beard talk about Tennessee football any day of the year. Floridas biggest fan was Emmitt Smith, the former Gator running back and NFL Hall of Famer. Theres also a bit on the FloridaGeorgia game, you should at least go to that if you arent going to go to home games, freshmen. There was a lot of cool footage of The Grove at Ole Miss and a nice bit about the animosity between LSU and Ole Miss in football. I really enjoyed that because LSU is usually the odd-person out when talking about the natural rivals in the conference. There was also a nod to Arkansas old basketball arena, a place I didnt know had such history and also allowed former coach Nolan Richardson some airtime, which is always great. Overall, I give The Stars Aligned an A, primarily because it had football in it and I am not a bar for football-related entertainment, OK? 10:00 p.m. 2:00 a.m.: Mercifully, the SEC Network programmers have scheduled four hours of reruns of the programming weve already been over for the west coast viewers. This is like what happens when you have a double-block class and your professor lets you go early. Treasure these moments, freshmen. 2:00 3:00 a.m.: As the 2009 SEC Championship game begins, we resume festivities and Ive decided its story time. This game intersected my life at one of the strangest weekends Ive ever had. Full disclosure: Im from Gainesville, lived here every day of my 21 years. The night before this game was one of the better nights of my life. Im not a music guy, but at age 16 I was obsessed with Kid Cudi. come out, Man on the Moon: The End of The Day, and his mixtapes combined with that LP were the soundtrack for more than a few adolescent nights. So Cudi did a free concert on night before this game, and it was absolutely awesome. My friends and I left school when at the end of the day, drove to campus and waited out a cold rainy day to stand front row. After it was over and wed felt like wed touched the face of God, we left on top of the world. Now our friend had an abandoned house next to her parents place, so as any group of dumb teenage boys, we decided it would be cool to spend the night in there. We had Smirnoff Ice and a hookah, it was freezing by Florida standards but it was awesome. The next day, the game was an afterthought because Florida had lost once in two seasons, it was going to beat Alabama and Tebow was going to continue his march to college football immortality. After UF disposed of Bama, grovel at my mothers feet for a chance to buy a ticket to the national championship game, but the Crimson Tide had other ideas for how that Saturday evening was going to go. By Sunday morning coach Urban Meyer was in the hospital and nobody from Gainesville was going to get to go to Pasadena. But on the plus-side, I still dont think my mom knows I broke and entered an abandoned residence. 3:00 4:00 a.m.: of Alabama-Florida plays, it is in many ways the end of one dynasty and the beginning of another. Mark Ingram would win the Heisman trophy seven days after this game of three national championships in four years the following month. For Florida, within a year, a new man would be head coach and the programs face would change from an offensive powerhouse led by lookalike. The Gators won a national championship in the 2006 and 2008 seasons, and they came close to playing for another one under Muschamp in 2011. Four short years after this game was played, Alabama had their fourth national championship under Nick Saban dashed only thanks to the miracle kick return of Chris Davis, and Florida didnt even go to a bowl game. 4:00 5:00 a.m.: The second of four straight recent-classic Alabama games begins to play and the conspiracy theorist in me knows drive from Tuscaloosa, Ala. Yes, I also know the SEC Networks main hub is in Charlotte, N.C., but the mind wanders at 4:00 a.m. If I were you, freshmen, Id consider taking the road trip to see the Gators play the Crimson Tide its one you wont forget. Speaking of Birmingham, Ive decided to switch gears and take a look at a replayed version of the soccer game pitting the University of Alabama at Birminghams game against Vanderbilt in an exhibition. The game wasnt aired on SEC Network, but rather on its online companion SEC Network+. The webcast opens with playby-play men Kevin Ingram and Jeff Miller talking about the network and how many games it will broadcast. in the game setting up the tactics and playing styles of two teams participating. There wasnt much explaining of the game, and thats a good thing. viewers like uncultured swine that have never watched a soccer game and talking too much above them, alienating a casual observer with too much technical jargon. They also got along well and seem to me like theyve worked together before, and I hope they do so again. 5:00 6:00 a.m.: There was no halftime show, so as I entered the 12th hour of this little endeavor, I watched still shots of scenery around Vanderbilts soccer stadium while listening to the PA announcer go through some sort of contest Neither Miller nor Ingram talk over each other often. They also dont talk too often theyre just having a conversation about the game. Theyre educated about soccer, but dont do it in a way thats condescending to those that arent. Overall Grade: Ill give the SEC No qualms here, or maybe Im just too tired to tell? Read the rest of the story online at SEC, from page 44

Just a few months ago, the 6-foot-4 freshman from Glenarden, Md., was an athletic three-star recruit with long arms and a natural ability to protect and score at the rim. Ultimately, Floridas newest and tallest addition opted to take the path less traveled, accepting a scholarship in an unfamiliar sport over her former forte. I kind of based it on (that) volleyball was a new year and I was less burnt out on it, Alhassan said. It was a tough and unexpected decision for the highly touted freshman, but a simple enough one for coach Mary Wise and the Gators. Rhamat could be playing basketball at a lot of places right now, Wise said. Were very lucky she chose volleyball. Alhassan began playing volleyball her sophomore year at Academy of the Holy Cross. Even as a senior, she was relatively new to the sport and showed raw talent, but her seemingly unlimited athletic potential caught the attention of Floridas scouts. Dave Boos, our assistant head coach, was wont believe whos in the gym, Wise said. It was a phone call that night and he said, that good? Oh no, she doesnt know anything about the game, Boos replied. While Alhassans lack of volleyball knowledge is a downside for the Gators, her innate her towering stature. Wise said. Sometimes for players it takes them a while before that light comes on for them to learn and change skills and take it all in . every indication is (Alhassan) has great ability to learn. Despite her severe lack of playing experiblocker used her athleticism and intellect to youth national team tryouts, all while competing alongside peers who had been playing volleyball since they were old enough to hit one. tional team, carried USA to a Gold Medal and was named MVP. The fact is, despite only playing the sport for a fraction of the time as the rest of her Florida teammates, Alhassan has already accomplished far more. However, there will be no shortage of challenges and rough patches this season as she continues to grow accustomed to volleyball. one of the biggest challenges for me, being able to move at that speed and getting used to it, Alhassan said. With her lack of experience comes a resume that few collegiate players can replicate, and that should undoubtedly help the 18-year old transition from playing under a basket to playing above a net. year that she tried out for the youth national team, the fact that she even made one of the last cuts is incredible, Wise said. A year later, shes the MVP. When we talk about a learning curve, hers has been a straight line.Freshman middle blocker has raw talent despite inexperienceAlhassan
