Travis Jermal West, 26, was located and then arrested at a Newberry mobile home by the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, according to a press release. The warrant for Wests arrest was issued after police said he stabbed and took money from a victim on July 31 near the 200 block of Southwest Sixth Avenue in downtown Gainesville.

According to UPD, theft is the No. 1 crime problem at the University of Florida, and bicycles are the No. 1 target, said Yvonne Hinson-Rawls, District 1 city commissioner.

Mandatory bicycle registration programs have been employed in other Florida cities like Fort Lauderdale, Daytona Beach and St. Petersburg, with either no cost or $1 fees to register and citations ranging from $10 to $93, Kurnick said.

Alicia Longworth, assistant athletics director for the UAAs marketing and promotions department, said some freshmen and even sophomores and juniors have no idea how the tradition began. Swamp in 1949. The Gators were losing to Citadel, a team he was there to support, and Florida fans were booing their own team.

Edmondson, who turned 92 in July, said games, but he never misses a chance to cheer the Gators on from his home in Tampa. At my last game, he said, I was in the I got one last cheer out of them. Comiter said his primary goal is to honor Edmondson and the rich tradition surrounding the Two-Bits cheer, which has been his favorite part of Gator football games for as long as he can remember.

Bob Graham listens as Jon Mills, dean emeritus of the Levin College of Law, reads a question from the audience Thursday night at the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. UPD ESCORTS AFTER 3 A.M. JULIA MCBEE Alligator Contributing WriterWhen night falls, some students may worry about walking out alone. Eni Laska, a 19-year-old UF marketing sophomore, said the campus feels relatively safe until 10 p.m. Theres less visibility, and I always try not to walk alone, Laska said. When I get the UF Alerts, I try to be watchful or just go inside. This comes after students received a slew of UF Alerts from police responding to two sexual assaults reported around campus Saturday night. With the kickoff of the school year, themselves. Student safety is a high priority, said Naomi Phineas, a University Police victim advocate. With mobile apps like TapShield and Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol, students can help protect themselves at night. TapShield allows students to alert police of their location. It is similar to the blue light emergency phones on campus, Phineas said. SNAP also offers an app to locate its free nighttime transportation service that runs on campus from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m. If a student still needs a ride after 3 a.m., he or she can call University Police and get a ride for free, Phineas said. Students looking to take further protective measures can participate in UPDs Rape Aggression Defense program.

Lee Nelson, former director of real estate and development for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, was hired to take over for previous director Bruce Delaney. Nelson, a graduate from Yale University, said he liked the breadth of responsibility the position at UF offered. (The university) has done a lot of interesting things on the real estate front, he said. Its hard to predict what well continue to develop in the future, but a lot of the developments the university has are all going to be very interesting. Nelson will be responsible for creating and executing a development plan for UF in Gainesville and around Florida. This includes buying, receiving and selling property for the universitys use, according to a university memo. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said NelI think if you look at his experience level and the type of project he worked on in Georgia, youll see he is imminently qualiAccording to the UF memo, Nelson had held his position in Georgia since 2010, where he was responsible for coordinating real estate transactions among 31 public universities. Students on campus, such as 20-year-old UF art junior Allie Wright, questioned whether the university needs more real estate development. None of the construction or development hinders me in any way, she said. I do question if its necessary to have another building for the business majors, though. Nelson is set to start his position Sept. 15. Nelson said he is looking forward to becoming a part of The Gator Nation. Everybody I have met in this whole process has been absolutely marvelous to talk to and share ideas with, he said.

At the public forum in Pugh Hall, Graham and David Hart, vice president of governmental affairs and political operations from the Florida Chamber of Commerce, debated the pros and cons of passing the constitutional amendment, which would provide funding to protect and manage conservation lands. Amendment 1 would create a legacy for preserving rivers, lakes and springs for the future, Graham said at the forum. The amendment would be the key to protecting Floridas water supply, he said. Attendees also contributed to the discussion by asking questions to both panelists. If another recession were to hit, the government would have to cut funding elsewhere, Hart said. We dont want our beaches looking like Coney Island on the Fourth of July, Graham said. Voters will be able to vote on the amendment this November. Jenna Goldman, a 21-year-old UF history and political science senior, said she was still in favor of Amendment 1 after the debate.

Its time for a hope-theres-not-a-repeat-of-the-longest-weather-delayever edition of...Darts & Laurels The big story at UF this week was the cancellation of the inaugural game of the 2014 Gator football season against Idaho. After hours of lightning delays, Gator fans got a small, exciting taste of the upcoming season when Valdez Showers how appropriate ran back the opening kickoff for 64 yards. Unfortunately, the game was immediately postponed, and eventually canceled, after more lightning was spotted nearby. For making The Gator Nation wait a whole extra week to start the football season, we give a really-bad-timing DART to Florida thunderstorms. surprising and innovative policy this week. The company announced that it will no longer sell cigarettes and other tobacco products in its stores. Although government regulation and taxation of cigarettes have been largely effective in reducing smoking rates, this bold, voluntary stance by a large corporation sends a powerful anti-smoking message. CVS Health anticipates a $2 billion loss in sales as a result of its decision, so this is more than just a minor branding strategy. Although some argue that those seeking products less accessible is an excellent way to reduce the number of new smokers. We award a LAUREL to CVS Health. Unlike CVS Health, which made the courageous decision to counter the scourge of smoking, a member of Floridas congressional delegation spent this week reinforcing one of our Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla., sent out a fundraiser invitation that is sure to make the blood of any opponent of sexism men invited to a Republican congressmans fundraiser were present. Southerlands campaign manager called the attenlaughable about this situation is that Southerland and his ilk think that such overt sexism will go unnoticed by Florida voters. This weeks this-isnt-the-1950s DART goes to Rep. Steve Sutherland. Although the weather last Saturday was about as bad as it gets, that didnt stop Gator football fans from coming to The Swamp in droves. Even through the interminable relatively disappointing 2013 campaign, the passion of The Gator Nation for the new season was truly a sight to behold. Lets hope their energy helps carry the Gators to a big win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday and a successful season overall. An in-all-kinds-of-weather LAUREL to the best damn football fans in the country, The Gator Nation. Nude photo hacking: breach of privacyIn the past week, Ive seen more breasts than I can count. With events like the nude photo leak of more than ing, tits have taken over mainstream media. This makes it the perfect time to gauge the trustworthiness of your friends, partners and classmates in terms of sexual content. Not sure what I mean? Maybe Im being too sensitive, but if you actively sought out naked pictures that were leaked without consent, how can I trust you with my own pictures? The answer: I cant. Your treatment of these leaked naked bodies is indicative of how youll treat my own body. The people who made jokes about the leaked images and passed them around seem to be the very same people who ask for naked pictures from my friends and colleagues. if you dont want people to share them, but yeah, babe, please send me some naked pictures. It doesnt work that way, though. Violating one persons right to privacy is never OK, regardless of whether you know them in person or just watch them in movies. Looking at those photos shows that you dont respect the privacy and body autonomy of women, and I, for one, dont want to be involved with someone who wont respect me. A column regarding the celebrity photo leak that ran in the Alligator on Wednesday made just that point complicit in the crime against these women by violating their privacy. So if you texted your friends a picture of Kate Upton topless, whos to say you wont do the same with a picture sent to you by someone you actually know in real life not just in your wet dreams? The ironic part of all of this is that you seem to think youre doing us a favor. But you cant justify looking at or sharing these photos without the subjects consent by saying that they are hot, or by saying that they will further the subjects career. ing photo is a good example. Yes, I saw the picture. Yes, the photos subjects were all unreasonably attractive. But the photo was taken in what Im sure was a private moment for the sorority. The photo wasnt intended for my eyes, nor yours. Regardless of your reasoning for sharing the photo, whether you thought it was funny or whether it turned you on, no reason is good enough to compromise the privacy of those sorority sisters. Your actions in regard to these photos dont only transsexual content. Sharing a photo is the equivalent of giving your friends a very detailed description of any sexual encounter we had. These photos and any sexual experience should remain private unless both parties consent to sharing them. If youre lucky enough to receive a naked picture of someone, dont mess that up by being a jerk. Taking and/or sending nudes can be a great way to spice up your sex life. But dont ask for them if you are unable to keep them to yourself. Dont screenshot photos on Snapchat for your personal enjoyment later, unless the sender has deemed that OK. Everybody has the right to privacy. Theres no excuse to violate that just because you want to see someones cleavage. Robyn Smith is a UF journalism junior. Her columns appear on Fridays.

Please remember that in the upcoming election, you will be able to vote for candidates who represent you based on where you live. Therefore, I ask that you all take the time to ensure that you have For more information on the elections process and how to properly update your local address, Go Gators, Hans Rojas SG Supervisor of ElectionsAug. 29 column misses underlying issues of tax inversionsDear Editor, This letter is in response to Joel Mendelsons opinion piece on Aug. 29 about corporate tax inversions. Forcing corporations to return to the U.S. in order to more fully share the burden of U.S. taxes completely misses the underlying issues. Despite the U.S. having the second highest corporate tax rates in the world, corporations pay no taxes regardless. They simply act as government tax collectors, passing those costs onto consumers. The corporations use of loopholes that enable them to lower their tax burden actually helps to lower the cost of their products and services and consumers. Joels comparison of a corporations ability to exploit this loophole to that of an individual is somewhat disingenuous, as an individual simply has different loopholes to exploit, such as the home mortgage interest deduction, itemized business and work deductions and child care expenses. The real issue lies in an overly burdensome tax code that allows business and government to manipulate each other. The answer for a consumption-based society like the U.S. is a consumption-based tax like the FairTax. The FairTax is a retail sales tax on all goods and services with no exemptions or loopholes. The governments purchases would be taxed along with those of individuals. There would be little change in the cost of goods, as embedded taxes would be removed. The FairTax would make all taxes essentially voluntary and allow people to keep 100 percent of their paychecks. Bill Erickson Alachua County residentLast weeks open letter to President Bernie Machen wrongfully condemns proclamationI was taken aback by the recent open letter to UF President Bernie Machen in this past weeks Alligator. In it, the author condemns Machens proclamation, I believe the entire University of Florida community holds academic freedom to be a cherished principle that advances the interests of society, and challenges our president to use boycotts as the model for academic integrity. A discussion focused on divestment is counterproductive. It wrongly assumes that the Israeliignores the true complexity of the situation. By embracing the nuances, we can move toward constructive engagement, peaceful solutions and an atmosphere of economic and political cooperation. This is the approach currently outlined by the road map to peace plan, which encourages the normalization of relations between Israel and the Arab states, including trade links. Additionally, Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian authoritys recognized leader, has said he does not ask anyone to boycott Israel. I am proud to be part of The Gator Nation because of Machens decision to ensure that UF always cherishes academic freedom holding to the principles of democracy treasured by America and Israel. I am proud to stand with a student body whose Senate reinforced the presidents message last April by voting to respect academic freedom and invest in peace on this campus. And I am proud to be part of the welfare of the state depends upon the morals of its citizens. Moving forward, our role must be to work toIsraelis and Palestinians apart for centuries. My commitment is to uphold Machens words by building bridges that foster civil dialogue in an effort to understand one another, as well as to encourage investment and negotiation for shared future prosperity so that everyone may live side by side in peace and security. Adam Grossman CEO and Rabbi at the UF HillelLetters to the Editor For most Americans, the popularity of Congress is somewhere below cockroaches and colonoscopies. We prefer the idea of a doctor probing our colon to the idea of the institution responsible for creating our nations laws. Thats a big problem. Congress is stricken with Angeles moves as smoothly as a bowling ball down a waxed lane in comparison. The dysfunction grips our country, preventing action on the major issues confronting the nation. But theres an even more potent and dangerous disease seeping through the halls of the Capitol: the power of money. Former House Majority cently resigned after losing in the Republican primary earlier this year. Cantor announced a post-congressional job. Instead of shoveling piles of elephant manure for the National Zoo, a job well suited to his exploits as a former member of Congress, Cantor will make a paltry sum of $3.4 million to work for Moelis & Co., a New York City-based investment bank. Is it wrong for a former member of Congress to take higher salary? Of course not. No one is arguing that former members of Congress should remain unemployed after they retire or lose re-election. Just like a normal member of society, Eric Cantor did exactly what anyone who lost new one. However, the nature of the job that Cantor was hired for demonstrates some of the fundamental problems with our modern political system. Americans are still pretty peeved that Congress used taxpayer dollars to bail out the banks to the tune of $700 billion following the stock market crash of 2008. Now, Cantor is going to work for the same industry bailed out by Congress. Making matters worse, Cantor will likely lobtasked Cantor with setting up ton, D.C. Cantor will likely succeed at his new gig, given the fact that he was the No. 2 Republican in the House for years. His knowledge of the legislative process, his fellow representatives and how to make sure Moelis & Co.s interests are protected will suit him well. However, it proves that his constituents were probably lier this year. like so many other members interests ahead of his constituents. Cantors recent loss highlights the frustration most Americans have toward Congress. Despite having every advantage over his tea party challenger, Cantor lost because he district, preferring the slime of Washington, D.C. upset that their representative was simply another cog in the system and no longer did the job he was hired to do: represent his constituents. When the paychecks from Moelis & Co. start rolling in, its likely that Cantor will numb the sting of his shocking loss, but what he doesnt have anymore is power. Sure, hes still the former House majority leader and can bend the ear of almost every Republican in Congress, but for all intents and purposes, his real power vanished when he resigned from his post. Eric Cantor is once again a nancial industry like an untold number of hacks. He cant use special entrances and exits into and out of the Capitol, and theres no longer name on it. Hes just another normal American who hapsalary. Cantor may not care about losing his lawmaking power as long as he gets his checks. However, his loss of power is a victory for his constituents throughout the country desperately seeking true leadership and representation in the halls of Congress.

IT IS CALLED SIDECAR. LEXIE BYERS Alligator Contributing WriterMaudes Classic Cafe is now serving more than espresso. The downtown cafe opened its next-door beer and wine bar, Sidecar, in July. Owner and manager Matthew Wrighton said Sidecar offers live music, a monthly comedy night and a poetry slam. The cozy bar has a groovy atmosphere inspired by a trip to San Francisco, Wrighton said. Its couch doubles as a stage, and lava lamps glow next to a gray furry wall. Its visually entertaining, he said. Juliane Miklos, a 21-year-old UF alumna, went to Maudes every other week while at UF. Id love to go to Sidecar based on my experience at Maudes, Miklos said, I love the atmosphere there. Wrighton said he hosted a 20-person taste test to choose the bars selection of beers and wine. Theres a lot of detail going into what youre going to drink, he said. Andy Fass, the owner and chef at Amelias, an Italian restaurant across the street, said he is excited about the opening of Sidecar. The two businesses have different hours and crowds, so Fass is not worried about competition. The more businesses downtown the better, he said.Maudes opens beer, wine bar next door LOCAL MARIA ESPINOZAAlligator Contributing WriterElderCare of Alachua County hosted its fourth annual Something New in Orange and Blue 2014 fashion show and tailgate event Thursday night at the Alachua County Senior Recreation Center. zations programs and services at the facility.

The poll was conducted by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service with UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research, the Tampa Bay Times and Bay News 9. Scotts campaign seems to be more successful than Crists in terms of having direct contact with voters, said UF political science professor Michael Martinez. The poll of 920 registered Florida voters suggests that Floridians are weighing many factors in choosing a candidate, said Christopher McCarty, director of UF Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The numbers are useful to the candidates campaigns, but they also give places like the Graham Center valuable information to inform voters on how the race is shaping up, McCarty said. dent that the latest poll will closely November, said Graham Center spokeswoman Shelby Taylor.New poll indicates six-point advantage to Scott over CristScott C AMPUS GRIFFIN HORVATHAlligator Staff Writerghorvath@alligator.orgThe UF Department of Chemical Engineering will celebrate its 75th anniversary Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the new Chemical Engineering Student Center.

She was hospitalized Aug. 28 after going into cardiac arrest in a docprocedure. The New York state health department is investigating the circumstances.

In a 2010 Late Show interview, David Letterman broached the plastic surgery issue: You dont look exactly like the Joan Rivers I used to know. Rivers was unapologetic. Joan Rivers was fearless. Or, to be more accurate, a humorist who fearlessly spun fears into gold. The trouble with me is, I make jokes too often, she told The Associated Press in 2013. Thats how I get through life. been through something! But you laugh at it, it becomes smaller. So she made fears evaporate, at least for a moment. She blew them up with relish. Comedian, actor and writer, Louis C.K., said in a statement. I never saw someone attack a stage with so much energy. She was a controlled lightning bolt. She was ful joke writer. She loved comedy. She loved the audience. She was a great actress and should have done that more. She loved living and working. She was kind. She was real. She was brave. She was funny and you just wanted to be around her. I looked up to her. I learned from her. I loved her. I liked her. And I already miss her very much.

Read more about them at announces captainsFootball coach Will Muschamp announced on Twitter that Chaz Green, Max Garcia, Jabari Gorman and Mike Taylor will be team captains against Eastern Michigan.Mother Nature got the best of Florida football on Saturday. Thunderstorm after thunderstorm and more than two and a half inches of rain turned the Swamp into just that and forced Floridas season opener against Idaho to be suspended and ultimately ruled a no contest. But we here at alligatorSports Brand Picks Column would rather focus on the sunny days that lie ahead. What? Theres supposed to be rain and thunderstorms at the start of the Eastern Michigan game, too? Well, there goes that. Debating the game of the week No. 14 Southern California vs. No. 13 Stanford are alligatorSports staff writer Jonathan Czupryn and alligatorSports Editor Jordan McPherson. Stanford (-2.5) will drown USCs hopes of winning because My boy Richard Johnson says it best: Offensive linemen win championships. OK, so maybe thats a little hyperbolic, but you get what Im saying. David Shaws black and blue brand of smashmouth football starts and ends with that monstrous known to use a jumbo set up front that actually puts anywhere from seven to nine offensive linemen on jans defense cannot handle Shaws power-type system and the Cardinal will hog the ball all game.

Holston had a career-high 24 kills in UFs 3-2 loss to FSU on Thursday. IAN COHENAlligator Writer@ibcohen5Florida would have relished a win last night against Florida State. In part to relieve the bad taste in its mouth, still lingering after its loss to FSU in last years NCAA tournament. But more so because of the next couple of weeks. Despite a closely contested match, the No. 11 Gators (3-1) couldnt pull out a win against the No. 8 Seminoles (3-0), falling 3-2 on Thursday in Tallahassee. There were a lot of good things tonight, coach Mary Wise said. Were not hanging out heads. This is early season, you kidding me? With starting two freshmen, to go in, in this engreat a performance as weve ever had here in Tully gym. The effort was present for Florida, but the execution was lacking. Florida had a season-high 20 service errors and just three blocks on the night. Youre not going to beat a top-10 opponent on the road with 20 unforced errors, Wise said. The service errors, we have the ability to score some points, we just kept shooting ourselves in the foot. And we had no business winning that string of errors, but rallied behind Alex Holston UF volleyball falls to FSU in five sets LAWRENCE LAGUNAAlligator Writer@lagunalawrence Of the womens soccer matches this weekend, only Florida and Florida State will headline a match that contains two top-10 ranked opponents. The No. 8 Gators and No. 2 Seminoles will programs made a weekend road trip from the Midwest. Florida State (4-0) and Florida (3-1) both shared victories over Oklahoma State UF taking a 4-0 win in regulation while FSU won 2-1 in double-overtime. But ultimately Florida State left the Sooner state undefeated as Florida fell to Oklahoma 2-1 while the Seminoles had a 1-0 win in Norman, Okla. Now both teams meet back in their home state, and the Gators are seeking revenge after losing 3-0 in last seasons meeting. They have a lot of returners, coach Becky Burleigh said. Dagny (Brynjarsdottir) the kid on top is still a big factor. Shes their attacking mid. They have lost a couple of kids that played thats tough to replace. All of us lose players and gain players. FSU seems to reload quite a bit. And in 2014, the Seminoles have reloaded.

and enter the match having won the Gators. Florida State has won 10 of the last 16 matches against Florida, including three in a row, which is FSUs longest win streak versus UF. FSU is always really, really good, said forward Savannah Jordan, who leads the team in goals this season with three. A tough team and obviously they rival for us. I think its going to be a good competition. Were both really good teams my team going in. We feel good this week, ready in practice and well have a good chance this weekend. Florida is looking to prevent Florida State from running away something that the Gators experienced last year at James G. Pressly Stadium. Of FSUs three goals in 2013, Brynjarsdottir scored two goals within two minutes and nine secHowever, Florida has played 45 minutes of contests so far in 2014. Its always a big game, Burleigh said. I just think we always respect having a good opponent. We want our opponents to bring their best and we certainly expect that from FSU. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15 After losing to the Cardinal for four straight years, the Trojans column in the series in 2013 with a 20-17 win at home. And after racking up 701 yards in its season opener against Fresno State, expect USC to do more of the same against Stanford. -Jordan McPherson Now onto the picks! is the Orlando Sentinels Edgar Scarface Thompson, who said at a media availability this week that if he were to have a rags-toriches story, it would be slightly similar to the one portrayed by Tony Montana. Well, based on your success through one week in the picks column, is it too early to say hello to your little friend? Trailing Edgar by one game with a 5-2 record is Editor Richard Offensive Line Play Johnson, who probably talked more about Texas A&M and Stanfords o-lines on Wednesdays alligatorSports podcast than anyone ever wants to hear. Oh, and he hates Chipotle. How do you even live? Also in second place is alligatorSports staff writer Jonathan Whats his last name? Czupryn, whose surname is so damn hard to pronounce that the people at the SECs weekly teleconference didnt even attempt to say it. Why cant you be like the rest of modern society and have a last name that people can at least guess its pronunciation? Finishing up the three-way tie for second is alligatorSports staff writer Morgan I LOVE TODD GURLEY Moriarty, who tweeted excessively about the Georgia running back while we waited in the press box for Floridas game that never came last weekend. WE GET IT. Gurleys a beast. You with the same damn thing every 30 seconds. Rounding out the alligatora 4-3 clip is Sports Editor Jordan Im too young for this s**t McPherson, who was caught with a deer-in-the-headlights look when Alligator Photo Editor Kan Li snapped a photo of him in the press box Saturday. Its a big and scary world out there Jordan so if you ever feel like you need a hand to hold, Edgar sits right next to you. And we all know hes seen his fair share of s**t in this world. In a tie for sixth place with a 3-4 record is Nick Facts arent relevant de la Torre, who tried to make the argument that Idahos football stadium (cap. 16,000) couldnt hold as many people as UFs OConnell Center (cap. 11,548) during media availability this week. I guess facts dont matter when youre trying to make a point, right? Also in sixth place batting under .500 is Landon Literally for 48+ hours Watnick, who blabbed on so much during media availability Wednesday that our own Richard Johnson had to move across the room just to get some work done. Landon, I get that youre on a new and exciting adventure after locking up this job with Inside the Gators, but GOOD GOD CUT US A BREAK! We have to listen to people ramble on all day long so when we have a little peace and quiet, PLEASE LET US HAVE A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET! And in dead-ass last with a piss-poor record of 2-5 is Thomas Im probable Goldkamp, who was called out by Will Muschamp for not being on his injury report Monday after he cut his thumb on a plate. Really? A plate? Are we going to have to send you back to the kiddie table? PICKS, from page 14 SOCCER, from page 14Jordan leads UF with three goals in 2014 Holston had a career-high 24 killsto capture a 30-28 victory and take a 1-0 lead. The sophomore led Florida with a season-high 24 kills and a .447 hitting percentage. gressive serving team, and (errors) are always going to happen when you serve aggressive, Holston said. Especially playing a team like Florida State with such great servers. After FSU tied the match with a 25-21 win in the second set, Wise moved Holston from the front to the back row. The change immediately shifted the momentum in Floridas favor. I think (the move) was really effective, Holston said. It was a great call by Mary for me to play the back row. I think one thing is, we havent really seen that type of offense yet this year, so I think it was a great way to mix it up. I have different players open for different springs and different blocks. Florida trailed 15-10 in the third set when Wise made the change, propelling the Gators to a 25-23 victory. But the fast-paced Florida State offense was too much to overcome, and FSU captured the next two sets 25-23 and 15-9, respectively. Overshadowed in the loss were strong performances from juniors Noami SantosLamb, who recorded 12 kills, and Simone Antwi, with 11. We lost, but our effort (was) so good, Wise said. You think about Holly Pole, (Alhassan), Mackenzie (Dain this environment, and what an awesome job they did. Floridas schedule only coming weeks, they will face No. 3 Texas, No. 15 San Diego and No. 6 USC. All of our games this year are going to be challenging, Holston said.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 FIVE OTHER SEC SCHOOLS ARE COMPETING. LUIS TORRESAlligator Writer@LFTorresIIIAfter failing to make the NCAA Championships during its spring season, the Florida mens golf team looks to redeem itself starting today as it tees off for its fall schedule at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic in Dalton, Ga. The tournament played on the par-72 Farm Golf Club Course totals 54 holes of stroke play extended over three days. Coach J.C. Deacon will be making his Gators coaching debut, and Florida will face some of the top teams in the country during the weekend event including Southeastern Conference foes No. 1 Alabama, No. 11 LSU, No. 20 South Carolina, No. 22 Auburn and Tennessee. The host of the event, Georgia Tech, is ranked No. 2 in the country. UFs lineup will include senior J.D. Tomlinson, who competed in every tournament as a whole has improved leading up to the tournament. Were playing pretty well as a team, Tomlinson said. We didnt really lose anybody from last year, everybody is starting to play a lot better and I think we can play really well this week. Joining Tomlinson in Floridas lineup will be senior Thomas Stewart, who competed in only two events last season both in the fall. Thomas stepped up and won the qualifying tournament during the week. Thats what you want to see out of your seniors, guys who step up, Deacon said. You dont have to get in anyones face or say anything, but you got to lead by example, and Thomas and J.D. were actually one, two in the qualifying, so coaches dream right there. The Gators will also be sending junior Richard Donegan who transferred to Florida in spring 2013 and sophomore Conor Richardson who competed in three tournaments last season. Sophomore Ryan with a career-best 215 at the SEC Championship, rounds out UFs lineup. I cant wait, competing is what I do best, I love it, it fuels me, thats why I wake up in the morning, Deacon said. When we get to the golf tournaments, I love winning and I love competing, especially in the SEC now, what an opportunity to beat some great schools.UF mens golf team begins season with tournament in Georgia UF Golf


3, KICKOFF, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Its been a while since Quinton Dunbar left a game without a catch. The redshirt senior wide receiver has a UF-record 28-game reception streak, dating back to Floridas 54-32 win against Furman on Nov. 19, 2011. Prior to Dunbars record-setting streak, UFs consecutive-catch streak was 25 games, set by Carlos Alvarez from 1969-1971. And with Floridas second attempt at a season opener set for Saturday against Eastern Michigan, Dunbar will look to continue that streak, but offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will not be looking solely to Dunbar to make plays on the opposite end of Jeff Driskel. I think youre obviously aware of those type of things and want to be fair to a young man, Roper said. It doesnt affect game planning or it doesnt affect the to go out there and win, but we would obviously like to help him keep that streak alive. Dunbar, who led all of Floridas returning receivers from its 2013 campaign with 40 catches and 548 yards, is continuing to develop his rhythm with Driskel. The Miami native said that Driskel and the wide receivers are starting to get on the same page, especially with deep passes. It comes from the offseason, Dunbar said. We threw a lot of deep balls, probably like, 10 to 15 a day after weights. ... You can tell that its paying off. The timing is down with the receivers and the quarterbacks. And even with the return of redshirt senior Andre Debose, the progression of junior Latroy Pittman and the development of sophomores Ahmad Fulwood and Demarcus Robinson, Dunbar is still viewed as a mentor among the wide receiver corps. Qs probably our biggest leader in the receiver unit, Fulwood said. Hes been here the longest, hes made probably the most plays out of all of us, he doesnt get the attention he should but I mean I think hes comfortable being under the radar still making plays that he needs to make. Driskel has seen improvements from some of the less experienced receivers throughout training camp and, like Roper, said there is the potential for several of them to have a breakout year. Ahmad Fulwood really knows what hes doing out there, Driskel said. Hes made some big plays in camp and I cant wait for him to do that in the season. He has a good understanding of the offense. I think Latroy Pittman is going to have a good year as well. Strong hands, smart football player and thats what you need at the receiver position. Fulwood, who caught 17 passes for 127 yards and a touchdown last season, said his development over the past year has been night and day. I felt like I was a lot more comfortable than any time last kind of strong last year, Fulwood said. I feel like this training camp I really had to show what I could do. It was all about making the high balls, making the balls some people cant make, making those catches. at Florida, Pittman has just four catches for 24 yards. After being a four-star recruit out of Citra (Fla.) North Marion High, hes ready to play. I mean coming in having success, you expect to have a great season and come out and make things happen for the team right away, he said. But it didnt break that way and at the end of the day it humbled me. But Im ready to step up and make plays now.Dunbar leads UF receiversAlligator File PhotoQuinton Dunbar catches the ball during Floridas 31-17 win against Tennessee on Sept. 21 in Ben Hill Returning UF receiver stats Quinton Dunbar Valdez Showers Ahmad Fulwood Demarcus Robinson Latroy Pittman Chris Thompson
