CHABELI HERRERAAlligator Staff Writercherrera@alligator.orgIn a search for redemption, former UF Student Body President Ben Meyers is taking to the Gainesville political circuit once again. cratic candidate for the Gainesville City Commissions March election. His resignation as UFs Student Body president three years ago was littered with rumors of under-the-table deals. Meyers cited personal reasons when he resigned in October 2011, but further reports from a 92-page thesis by former UF graduate have been at play. The report details Greek groups and select student organizations allegedly predetermining the upcoming years senior Student Government positions in a rendezvous location Meyers was quoted calling The Room. Meyers said he now regrets speaking to Bradshaw and that some of his comments were taken out of context. Theres no scandal there or juicy gossip story, Meyers said. He said his comments in the report were accurate, but he resigned because he fell below the SG-required 12-credit minimum. There are things in Student Government that people do, and its a way of learning and growing as an individual, he said. Current UF Student Body President Cory Yeffet said SG wont be endorsing Meyers campaign because it does not endorse political candidates. Moving forward, Meyers said he doesnt expect his SG past to avert voters. His campaign will focus on jobs, public safety and streamlining government. Because of what Ive been doing to improve our community, people can know that thats not the way I operate, Meyers said. Hes maintained his presence in Gainesville ecutive Committee of Alachua County and the citys Board of Adjustment. Michael Christ, a 21-year-old UF political science graduate student and the SG Senate minority leader, said corruption within student government is a known fact among its members, and he expects it will play a role in Meyers campaign. People are complicated, Christ said. I dont think its a black and white, good and evil thing. People will do pretty much whatever they have to do to get where they want on Student Government. Christ was involved in three SG campaign cycles since 2012 and said he questions Meywell-known as a conservative Republican at UF. which he strayed from while in college. He said he intends to leave ideology out of his campaign. I think that when you look at local issues, theres really no room for ideology, Meyers said. Its really looking at whats best on a case-by-case basis. Jenna Goldman, a 21-year-old UF political science and history senior, said Meyers change in party, youth and transient ties to dacy. the City Commission because students make up such a large part of the Gainesville community, Goldman, a former Students Party president, said. At the same time, Im not going to vote for just any old student, especially one with the record that he has. But Meyers insists he has a deep appreciation for the community where his family has lived for generations. Gainesville feels like home, the Miami native said. Still, only 1.4 percent of his campaign contributions have come from Gainesville, with nearly all the rest originating from South Florida, according to voterfocus.com. We just dont know if hes right for the position, Goldman said. What makes us trust him again? Former UF Student Body Presidents Tj Villamil, now the special assistant to UF President Bernie Machen, declined to comment, and Christina Bonarrigo could not be reached for comment.

Of the 90 individuals who were ejected from the game, 48 were UF students, according to a press release from University Police. Three of the eight arrests were also UF students. Twenty-two of the ejections were for disorderly conduct and 19 were for ticket switching. Eleven people were ejected for sitting in the wrong section, seven for attending the game without a ticket, six for sitting in the student section with nonstudent tickets, eight for possession of alcohol and another eight for intoxication. There were also three ejections for smoking, two for standing on the bleachers, one for stealing from a vendor, two for throwing objects and one for urinating on a wall. Of the eight arrests, four were for trespassing after warning. There was also one arrest made for disorderly conduct, one for resisting without violence and two for battery. The number of individuals arrested and ejected from Saturdays game was almost three times as much as last week, where 32 people were ejected and one was arrested while the Gators played Eastern Michigan University.

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is pushing to lower the 6.8 percent interest rate for graduate students utilizing the federal Stafford Loan program. More than 90 percent of veterinary students at UF require some yearly tuition of $28,630 for Florida residents, according to the UF College of Veterinary Medicine website. I think right now we are at a crisis, said Maureen Long, associate professor at UFs College of Veterinary Medicine. The loan burden is higher than what somebody probably pays in a year for rent. Janna Legg, a 27-year-old thirdyear UF veterinary student, said she relies solely on loans to pay for tuition, room and board. I think it is crucial this legislation be passed for current veterinary medicine students and those who are to come, she said. Legg said she often receives nocruing $12 in interest a day. According to the California Veterinary Medical Association, 28 percent of veterinarians might not known about the student debt. But for students like Maria Moriyon, a 20-year-old UF biology junior, the cost will not get in the way of applying to veterinary school. I have worked and planned to attend veterinary school, no matter the cost, Moriyon said.Veterinary students could catch a break on student loans MARIA ESPINOZAAlligator Contributing Writer Two UF students have launched a website called the Florida Political Review. The website discusses current affairs and political issues facing Florida. The Florida Political Review is a student organization that has partnered with the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, said Sheila Dickison, interim director for academic programs at the Graham Center. Website co-founder Corrado Minardi, a 22-yearold UF political science and Chinese senior, said more than 20 students are now participating after We hope this will serve to get people more interested in Florida politics, Minardi said. We also had the perception that, in general, the Student Body was not very aware of what happens politically in Florida. Our purpose is to create a space so students can share ideas and become engaged. Minardi said he hopes to see the publication in print next semester.

TurboVote partnered with UF and 40 other Florida colleges through the Florida College System. Since UFs partnership with TurboVote in 2012, about 3,800 students have signed up to either register to vote, request absentee ballots or set up reminders for all elections in their area through email or text message. Our platform was built around the idea that registering to vote and requesting absentee ballots should be as banking, said Adrienne Lever, the director for strategic partnerships at TurboVote. UF is ranked No. 2 in the country for registering students with TurboVote. In a September email to the UF community, UF President Bernie Machen urged voters to use TurboVote. Fewer than half of the millennials in Florida were registered to vote in the 2010 midterm elections, Machen said. After users sign up with TurboVote, all required documents are mailed to them precompleted, preaddressed and prestamped. Voters then have to sign the documents and put them in the mail. Ive participated in all local elections since our partnership in 2012 because theyve made it so easy, said Shelby Taylor, the communications director for the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. In 2012, more than 75 permore than 80 percent of returning voters who used TurboVote voted, Lever said. TurboVote makes me want to get more involved with elections, said Abby Gears, an 18-year-old UF health science freshman.Students asked to sign up on TurboVote There will be a two-drink maximumcheckpoints: one at the gate and one when purchasing a drink, McDaniel said.

The garden will be part of a concession area with food trucks like Monsta Lobsta, Kona Dog and Ameraucana Wood Fire for guests to enjoy before the live entertainment from Ludacris, Foster the People and former SNL performer Brooks Wheelan. I think for those that are of age, its fun to get dinner and have a glass of wine or a beer with it, McDaniel said. And I think this is a value-add. Its another thing that makes this experience such a great University of Florida tradition. I think this is so conducive of the festival feel and students being able to hang out and have fun with their friends, enjoy the music and enjoy being part of this university and The Gator Nation, she added. Haley Doyle, Growl associate producer of communications, said students will be excited about the addition. I know thats something we wished we could always have in the stadium, Doyle said. It will give the show that fun festival, pep rally feel. I think its going to bring a lot of people out, she said.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 5INTERNATIONAL THE ASSOCIATED PRESSBEIRUT Islamic State extremists released a video showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines, who was abducted in Syria last year, and British Prime Minister David Cameron late Saturday condemned his slaying as an act of pure evil. death in a statement after the British it was working urgently to verify the video. Haines is the third Westerner beheaded in recent weeks by the Islamic State group, which has seized vast swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq. This is a despicable and appalling murder of an innocent aid worker. It is an act of pure evil, Cameron said, adding that my heart goes out to the family of David Haines who have shown extraordinary courage and fortitude throughout this ordeal. The video emerged a day after late Friday urging his captors to contact them. At the end of the video showing the beheading of Sotloff, the Islamic State group threatened to kill on camera. The group threatened to kill another British captive. Both British men were dressed in orange jumpsuits against an arid Syrian landscape, similar to that seen in the Foley and Sotloff videos. His killer says in the video that Haines was paying the price for Britare battling the Islamic State group in northern Iraq. He references U.S. ers near the Haditha Dam in western Iraq, which the U.S. began targeting killing took place sometime during the past week. The British government had ping secret out of concern for his safety until the Sotloff beheading and the next victim. Haines, 44, was abducted near a refugee camp in northern Syria in March 2013 while working for the French international aid agency ACTED which was helping thousands of Syrians displaced by the groups, including the Islamic State, seeking to oust him. Mike Haines said in a statement that his brother was devoted to humanitarian work. David was most alive and enthusiastic in his humanitarian roles, Mike Haines said. His joy and anticipation for the work he went to do in Syria is for myself and family the most important element of this whole sad affair. He was and is loved by all his family and will be missed terribly.Video shows slaying of British aid worker David Haines by ISISKat Anthony / AlligatorDance for YouFour sisters of Gamma Eta Sorority Inc. perform a silhouette dance to Beyonces Dance for You at the annual Multicultural Greek Council showcase on Friday.

After initially being allowed to go free, Zimmerman was arrested, charged with second-degree murder and eventually acquitted. During and after his trial, Zimmerman became a hero of the conservative movement. Sean Hannity of Fox News, one of the most powerful voices in conservative media, called the Zimmerman trial purely political. Alex Seitz-Wald wrote in Salon that Ann Coulter, tea party nation founder Judson Phillips and David Horowitz are just a the victim of a left-wing media lynch mob. The most positive thing that could possibly be said about Zimmerman is that he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a 17-year-old. Even if that is what happened, what is it about Zimmerman that made him such a conservative darling? Unfortunately for his fans in the conservative media, Zimmerman has managed to destroy any remnants of a positive reputation that existed following his acquittal in the Martin case. After domestic violence-related arrests in 2013, Zimmerman took his behavior to a new low last week when he allegedly threatened to kill a driver during a road rage incident in Lake Mary. The driver later called 911 to report that Zimmerman was waiting in his car outside the drivers place of employment. Interestingly, despite Zimmermans repeated arrests, none of his victims including his girlfriend have ever agreed to press charges. It is impossible to know the motivations of these individuals, but it seems at least plausible that their inaction stems from fear of Zimmerman. reputation has quickly gone sour. Cliven Bundy, a Nevada rancher, became involved in a dispute with federal agents from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management after 20 years of refusing to pay grazing fees for his use of federal lands. Bundy quickly became a conservative symbol of anti-taxation and liberty, and his hero status persisted even after he and his supporters pointed weapons at federal agents. Only after video footage emerged of Bundy discussing the Negro and asserting that black people were better off under slavery than they are today did the conservative media break off their love affair with the troubled rancher. The point here isnt to suggest that liberal and Democratic icons are blameless or even necessarily worthy of imitation. However, it says something about the conservative movement that the individuals it holds up as heroes, like Zimmerman and Bundy, consistently demonstrate violent and ignorant behavior, often in combination. At the very least, conservatives should stop and evaluate these individuals more carefully and thoughtfully before erecting shrines in their honor. Social justice requires continuous angerI was once told that the decision-makers of our society often hope the public will lose interest in important issues before they are forced to do anything about them. The devaluation of black life in the U.S. is an issue that is important to many Americans. People of color empathize with the victims of racism and their families. Our white allies see the injustices and stand beside us, hoping to help in our efforts to bring about meaningful change. Trayvon Martin was a household name for a long time following his murder in 2012 at the hands of George Zimmerman. The public was enraged at Zimmermans acquittal in 2013, and Floridas Stand Your Ground law faced scrutiny as Martin remained a household name for weeks. It wasnt long, though, before Martins name got lost in People returned to their ordinary lives: class, work, civic organizations or family; all institutions more familiar and salient to them than the devaluation of black life social justice is reduced to embers unless a new incident becomes a prodder and pokes at the coals. nation have taken place in just the last few months. Ferguson, Missouri, was the catalyst for new conversations about racism and violence in America. People compared the case to the Martin shooting in its demonstration of the utter lack of respect for the lives of young black men. Allies in the U.S. and around the world used social media platforms to voice their support for Brown, his family and the struggle of African-Americans for justice and equality. pression of the media by law enforcement made national headlines. People were vocally and visibly angry with the system. Another African-American male, John Crawford, was Mart. Ohio is a permissive open-carry state, so it would have been completely in Crawfords rights to carry an actual gun if he had proper licensing and chose to do so. People were enraged when Crawfords right to bear arms and his right to life were both ignored when a 911 caller falsely perceived Crawford as a threat for his possession of a BB gun. Most recently, Darrien Hunt Utah after 911 callers described him as suspicious for doing nothing more than walking by their businesses on a Wednesday morning. Police shot him for brandishing what they called a sword, which his mother described as a harmless toy souvenir. Hunts mom, who is white, is certain that she knows why her son is dead, saying, They killed my son because hes black. No white boy with a little sword would they shoot while hes running away. Its easy to be angry when stories like these are in the headlines, and this anger is important. Without it, there will never be the groundswell of public support needed to enact substantive social and political change. However, social and racial injustice exists throughout America and manifests itself on a daily basis. To change this cycle of injustice, we must remain angry and insistent that racism in America is brought to an end. The morning my parents left after settling me into my warning my dad gave me. He told me to be careful and to always remember that there were things other people could get away with that I couldnt because I am black. That made me very angry. Ferguson is no longer a trending topic, and the anger that Michael Browns shooting caused has begun to fade from the public consciousness. Our inability to remain continuously angry about these issues is a major obstacle toward the change sought by advocates for social and racial justice. TehQuin Forbes is a UF sociology junior.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7Without the men and women who serve in the U.S. armed forces, we wouldnt be able to enjoy the freedoms many of us take for granted on a daily basis. A typical reaction from an American when they see someone in uniform But recently, one school had a very different reaction. Last week, Lt. Col. Sherwood Baker stopped by his daughters high school to clear up an issue she was having with her class schedule. As he was walking on the campus, he was stopped by a security guard and was told that he could not enter because the military uniform he was wearing might offend somebody. His wife, Rachel Ferhadson, said that he was given a choice. He could phone in to the ter that, Baker left the school and called the member met him the parking lot and allowed him on campus. The districts superintendent, Robert Shaner, a former combat Marine, said the district does not have a policy excluding individuals misunderstanding. Baker accepted their apology, but we shouldnt just let an incident occur without objection. What is happening in America when uniform offensive? Although some may not agree with every initiative our military undertakes, we should never be offended by those who put their lives on the line so that millions of people can live their lives in one of the freest countries on Earth. This isnt the only recent event where political correctness went completely overboard. banned from selling chicken sandwiches in conjunction with the football booster club because the sandwiches might offend somebody. The high schools principal, Val Wyatt, said that with their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, The principals decision was backed by the districts superintendent, Trudy Tuttle Ariaga, who said that we value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are goAriagas stance is clearly contradictory. She cannot ban the football boostfounders opinion on gay marriage and then also preach that she and her school district are Diversity means being made up of people or things that are different from each other. Some liberals tend to confuse diversity with uniformity, leading to a dangerous attitude of closed-mindedness and exclusion. If the superintendent really meant what she said about welcoming diversity, she would campus was in poor judgment and should be reversed. We must avoid shutting people down when their opinions dont completely align with our own. Different opinions offer opportunities to learn from one another. Ben Carson, former John Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate, described the PC police perfectly: You need to go out and talk to people. Everybody you know, have a discussion. Dont let the left shut All this political correctness might be acceptable if our education system took neutral stances and taught our children without discrimination and bias. Unfortunately, this doesnt always happen. Last week, a sixth-grade teacher in Washington, D.C., sent students home with a Venn diagram homework assignment where they were supposed to compare former President George W. Bush and former mass murder Adolf Hitler. For this educator to suggest that any U.S. president is comparable to a man who killed millions of people based upon his twisted ideology is downright reprehensible. We need to reject political correctness and stop choosing to be offended by anything and everything. The Declaration of Independence says that all people are guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It does not guarantee that we will always feel comfortable. Nick Eagle is a UF economics and political science senior. His columns appear on Mondays.PC police are running rampantColumnNick Eagleopinions@alligator.org By now, we should all have heard about the serial assaults happening on our campus. Three women so far have been attacked. Like my fellow female students, I am angry and scared. This is a gendered issue: misogyny and rape culture. Few men could understand the horror, paranoia, nervousness and fear that comes over many women when we think about this issue. However, these painful emotions only scratch the surface of what women at UF have experienced. The recent assaults tie into the overarching climate of victim sity. A week ago I attended an cas called No Gator Walks Alone. At the event, there were banners that students could sign, pledging to never walk alone. Cory Yeffet, our Student Body president, urged us to be aware of As a woman, I know what I need to do to keep myself safe. I have lived my whole life being ways be aware of my surroundwith these phrases hammered into her head. We are brought up lence against women. What I would like to know is: Where was the condemnation of the men who are assaulting women? I have not heard one word from administration condemning sexual violence or rape. My whole life, I have always taken precautions to guard myself from sexual assault, but that still has not kept culture on very personal levels. I am exhausted from being constantly told that it is my fault. I have a right to exist on this campus, as does every other woman. We have a right to study at the library past sunset, to attend our events in the evenings and to party late into the night if we want to. I shouldnt have to rearrange my existence simply because UF isnt calling out sexual violence for what it is. And I shouldnt be told Sometimes, I have to walk alone. These past two weeks, I have seen no serious criticism of rape culture or misogyny. I have felt burdened by victim blaming from not only my peers, but UF facPolice. Ive had enough of it. I attend this university, and I give it my all through my community work. I have a right to walk alone, to walk at night, to exist without fear of being assaulted simply because of my gender. Until we dismantle the rape culture that is so pervasive in our community and attack the core problem that is misogyny, none of us will be safe. Farah Kahn is the vice president of Students for Justice in Palestine.As a woman, sometimes, I have to walk aloneGuest columnFarah KahnSpeaking Out Guns have a unique place in the heart of American culture. The Second Amendment is hailed as a symbol of freedom from oppression and a lasting testament to American dedication to individual rights. As much as we often enjoy guns and our right to possess them, they are undoubtedly dangerous tools in the wrong hands criminal or not. When asked to think of a dangerous situation involving guns, most of us likely imagine war, being mugged or attempted murder. However, weapons do not only need to be in the hands of a criminal for a situation to be dangerous. At the end of August, a 9 year old at accidentally killed her instructor, Charles structor was a veteran, well-trained and familiar with weapons. The 9-year-old, who was on vacation with her family, was on a tour with a company called Bullets and Burgers that took the group to the shooting range weapons. The range allowed children as young as 8 years old to participate in the range activities, and there are no state regulations concerning the age limit for handling a weapon. in semi-automatic mode before switching to automatic with the instructors perthe weapons massive recoil, injuring her shoulder, and the barrel jumped to her instructors head. The tragic situation could have easily been avoided. Many people are heavily split on the issue of gun control, but simple gun safety could have prevented this situation and others like it from occurring. Many children in America are taught gun safety at a very young age. Guns are a or shotgun before the age of 10 is not uncommon. However, the difference between a semi-automatic, long-barreled weapon and a is hard to put into words. A somewhat similar accident occurred at a gun show in 2008, where an 8-year-old his weapon ended up directing the barrel to his own head, killing him. Simply put, 8-year-olds and 9-year-olds do not have the mass or muscles to handle much less the experience. Many young children are responsibly taught to handle ucation and safety. However, there is not a responsible method or reasonable purpose to hand a child an automatic weapon that they cannot even hold steadily. A range near The Last Stop has a similar policy. Range 702 has a 4-foot height requirement for children, and it also requires that children master easier to handle, safer weapons like a semi-automatic trainer by the NRA, nor is there a requiremilitary veteran would have been more also hard to see why this situation was allowed to occur. Most Americans understand that guns can be a source of sport, safety and food, but also that they require a great amount of respect, care and safety as well. Handthat for the sake of a good time. A little common sense should have prevented a little girl from being scarred and a man from losing his life, but sometimes Shane Brandt is a columnist for The Daily Cougar.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTALLAHASSEE A new report says a rising concentration of income among the nations richest households is a problem for Florida because it is one of 10 states most dependent on sales taxes. Florida has no state income tax, and its major source of revenue is a 6 percent sales tax. The report by credit ratings agency Standard & Poors notes that the annual growth rate in the states sales tax has dropped dramatically over the last three decades. The annual rate was 11.25 percent in the 1980s, but it has dropped since then and is averaging just below 2 percent since 2009. Most economic activity comes from consumer spending, a key driver of growth. But consumers have become increasingly reluctant to spend as median incomes have barely increased over three decades and remain lower than they were in 2007 when the Great Recession began. Floridas median family income, according to recent U.S. Census data, is about $46,000 a year. By contrast, the top 1 percent of earners has prospered for more than 30 years. average incomes have nearly tripled to $1.26 million since 1979, according to the IRS. But S&P notes that wealthier individuals tend to spend less of their money, meaning that states are unlikely to see much of an increase in sales tax collections. The top 5 percent in Florida have an average income of nearly $307,000. Floridas own economists, however, continue to predict steady and sustained state revenue growth in the next several years. More recent numbers show that taxes are growing between 4 percent and 5 percent annually. They also say that the state is shielded because state coffers are dependent on tourretirees moving to the state. outlook predicts that state legislators will have enough money to pay for schools and health care and still have a small surplus. Amy Baker, the coordiEconomic and Demographic Research, notes that as much as 15 percent of the states sales tax collections come from tourists. That provides in normal times a buffer a lot of other states wouldnt have, Baker said. Economists also say that the wave of baby boomer retirements that began earlier this decade will also have a positive impact on the states coffers. Baker said that there will be a surge in spending as they move to the state. Floridas major tax source remains the sales tax. But the state also collects corporate income taxes, taxes on insurance premiums, gas taxes, alcohol taxes, tobacco taxes and fees placed on automobiles.Tourism, retirees may help Florida with income gap CHLOE STRADINGERAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation has announced a formal partnership with local startup collective Starter Space. Starter Space will offer four internships to UF graduate students pursuing a masters degree in entrepreneurship. The partnership will include a speakers series, workshops for aspiring entrepreneurs and promotion of Starter Spaces activities on UFs campus. Michael Morris, James W. Walter Eminent Scholar Chair and academic director of the entrepreneurship program at UF, said the center wants to contribute to the growing startup atmosphere and see more ventures stay in Gainesville. As we looked around at the local landscape, we were especially excited about Starter Space, what they represent, their sort of mantra and outlook and attitude and everything, he said. Its very consistent with our own. Ashley Dean, a 22-year-old UF student working on her masters in entrepreneurship, is planning on attending the Its more of a hands-on approach to speaker series, so I think Im looking forward to that more than anything, she said. Jeffrey Stamp, creator and brand manager of Baked Lays, specializes in creative business processes. He will be Starter Space collaborates with eight startups, including the digital publication GainesvilleScene. Payal Khurana, co-founder and partner at Starter Space, said the company has always wanted to create a bridge between Starter Space and UF to get students more involved. Us having the same mission and doing something together creates a stronger force, creates a brighter light for students to have to say, OK, entrepreneurship is an actual, feasible route for me, she said.Starter Space partners with UF for internships, workshopsC AMPUS ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writerafernandez@alligator.orgThe World Wildlife Fund has awarded a UF graduate student a prestigious fellowship for his research in ecological conservation. Anand Roopsind, a third-year UF graduate student, was one of 26 students awarded the 2014 Russell E. Train Fellowship. Roopsind, 30, received the fellowship for identifying sustainable ways to reduce deforestation. A native of Guyana, Roopsind met Francis Putz, a professor at the UF Department of Biology, while studying in South America. I was the one that convinced him to come to UF, Putz said. I think that the award was very well deserved with his skill level and capacity. Hes a very good investment. Roopsinds love of the outdoors and conservation stemmed from his early childhood as he played in the countryside by his grandparents home. Roopsind has grown accustomed to the city life in Gainesville, but he still considers South America his primary research site and hopes to return. he said about his research. I think thats going to be part of my long-term development and moving toward going back home as well. The fund awards graduate students fellowships to pursue graduate degrees in conservation-related The organization looks for graduate students tions and commitment to working in their country of origin, said fellowship director Andrea Santy. Were looking for people who are leaders, she said, people who have really compelling research. With the fellowship, Roopsind can receive up to three years of funding with a maximum amount of $30,000 per year. Roopsind expects to graduate in 2017 and hopes to intern for the World Wildlife Fund after he receives his doctorate degree. Im optimistic, he said. My fellowship is for three years, so its perfect timing as I move toward great incentive.Graduate student receives WWF fellowship for conservation research I think that the award was very well deserved with his skill level and capacity.

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynThe Gators secondary couldnt decide what it wanted to be Saturday night. In Floridas 36-30 triple-overtime victory against Kentucky, coach Will Muschamps had its share of highlights such as Keanu Neals two interceptions and Brian Pooles But it was the secondary that nearly cost The Wildcats 369 passing yards were the most allowed by a Gators defense since Michigan threw for 373 yards on Jan. 1, 2008. Weve just got to tie some things up in the secondary, Muschamp said after the game. They had six big plays for 173 yards. ... That was very frustrating. Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles threw three touchdown passes ranging from 25 to 60 yards that gave his team the lead in each occasion. Towles found wide receiver Garrett Johnson twice in the third quarter for scores and Stanley Williams once in overtime. But besides the scoring, it was the big plays on third down that had Muschamp most disappointed in his secondary Saturday night. Late in the third quarter, Florida had Kentucky backed up on its own 37-yard line facing third-and-10. The Gators had just grabbed a three-point advantage and a defensive stop in the Wildcats territory would have generated some much-needed momentum. Instead, blown assignments by Duke Dawson and Keanu Neal gave Towles a wide-open target in Johnson for a 30-yard pickup. Towles went back to Johnson for a 33-yard touchdown on the next play. And in the fourth quarter with the game tied at 20, Kentucky faced a daunting thirdand-16 situation on its own 1-yard line. After Darious Cummings sacked Towles for a loss of 12 yards on the previous play, it appeared that UFs defense would hold to give its offense deBut once again, loose coverage this time by Marcus Maye gave Johnson a lane down for a 22-yard gain. We were just soft on coverage on 3rd down, Muschamp said. And thats really stupid. And thats on me. Well get it corrected. Still, two plays after Florida surrendered that third-down conversion, Neal came up with his second interception of the game to halt Kentuckys potential game-winning drive. And in the third overtime, Towles had an opportunity to burn Floridas secondary once again on a deep pass on third-and-9. But Brian Poole won the 50-50 jump ball over Kentuckys Dorian Baker, which forced UK to attempt a Thats a 50-50 ball, Muschamp said. I know from the stands that looks easy. Thats a really hard thing. Its a hard task to do some of the things we ask those guys to do. athletic plays from Neal and Poole, but Muschamp said the unit needs to communicate better if it expects to limit big plays from other Southeastern Conference opponents. Throughout fall camp, Muschamp harped on his defensive backs especially his safeties for not corresponding information well Those are things weve got to continue to work through, Muschamp said. We need to communicate better on the back end and it starts at the safety position.JOHNSONS JOURNALWhat the SEC Network is trying to do is akin to attempting to launch a food truck that sells specialty burgers in the parking lot of a McDonalds thats run by your father. sible task of running up against the unquestioned monopoly of Saturday morning college football viewership. Last season, FOX tried its hand at the morning pregame market to disastrous results. A weekly audience that averaged 73,000 people was a mere drop in the bucket to ESPN College Gamedays 1.83 million. Its one of the reasons FOX is out of the Saturday-morning market after only one season. But SEC Nation has three things FOX didnt have. support and backing of ESPN, the SEC Networks parent company. Imagine if that food truck you set up was cooking with McDonalds fries and was managed by someone who ran some of the Golden Arches most successful restaurants. Stephanie Druley is that person, the SEC Networks Vice President of Production who runs the ship on SEC Nation and comes from Sunday/Monday Night Countdown, which she was a part of for 16 years. They travel from city to city like College Gameday does, and in the process drum up interest on campus that translates to viewers the may tune in for few minutes. If the product is good, people will buy into it. But SEC Nations largest task is just getting you to notice them on your way into the drive thru. When you associate SEC Nation with College Gameday, you strike a chord with viewers. Students can and did camp out for SEC Nation, something they couldnt for FOXs pregame show. SEC Nation is on your campus, so the hope is that youre SEC Nation has support, talent needed for successful runRachel Crosby / Alligator StaffFlorida safety Keanu Neal (42) intercepts a pass intended for Kentucky wide receiver Javess Blue (8) during the Gators 36-30 Young Florida secondary surrenders big plays against KentuckySEE COLUMN, PAGE 15 Richard Johnsontwitter: @RagjUF Poll ResultsHow many yards of total offense will Florida record against Kentucky on Saturday?5.6% 151-300 61.1% 301-450 33.3% 451+35 total votes

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15Analysts have chemistry, knowledge to rival College Gamedaygoing to tune in for just a little bit. Thats when SEC Nation hopes to sink its hooks into your eyeballs and reel you in with its second advantage. Plain and simple, the shows got talent and that talent has chemistry in droves. Former defensive lineman Marcus Spears landed there with a tweet to Druley, asking for a simple follow. From there, Spears sent her a direct message in order to get an audition, which he nailed on his way to being the most polished analyst on SEC Nations set. He also has this odd-couple relationship with fellow-analyst Paul Finebaum that is downright hilarious to watch play out on set. A 315-pound former NFL defensive end and a gangly balding 59-year-old man is high comedy. Host Joe Tessitore brings his cachet and experience to the show as well, steering it back on track when it gets off the rails like his counterpart in the timeslot Chris Fowler. Tessitore is seasoned and he has a recognizable voice. Of course, they pale in comparison to Tim Tebow, the one analyst the average fan could name off the top of his or her head with ease before they read this story. He needs extra security wherever he goes, just your run of the mill polarizing sports rock star. Both Tebow and Spears digest tape to prepare for Saturday mornings with the zeal they once did for Sunday afternoons. They dont attack opponents anymore, but inform a populace. They do this with the pressure of Gameday as merely an idea, but not a concrete fact backed up by hard numbers. As Ive already stated, College Gameday dominates Saturday mornings with close to 2 million eyes, well never know by how much SEC Nation lags behind as it goes work isnt being rated, bringing us to advantage No. 3. Initially, the decision was to not rate the network for an entire year, but for now its which television shows are judged. So while the SEC Networks new food truck must compete with McDonalds, they dont have the external pressure of knowing exactly how far they lag behind the giant, something FOX dealt with in its pregame show launch as well. Youd taste the burger, youd watch the show and you know that both are different from the monopoly that has a chokehold on the market each is trying to enter. I took an in-person bite of SEC Nation Saturday morning and liked what I ordered, but the problem is I like McDonalds too. Thats where SEC Nation exists. Delivering a similar product thats very good, but to a consumer base that may not be inclined to switch their taste buds consistently. COLUMN, from page 13Richard Johnson / Alligator StaffThe SEC Networks Joe Tessitore (left), Tim Tebow (center) and Marcus Spears (right) sit on the SEC Nation set located on UFs Plaza of the Americas on Friday. MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyFans buzzed about Demarcus Robinson following Floridas 36-30 triple overtime victory over Kentucky. The sophomore wide receiver had a school-record-tying 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-tying score to force a second overtime period. But there was someone else Satthe radar, and may have been the reason the Gators pulled off their 28th straight victory over the Wildcats: running back Matt Jones. Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper focused more on the passing of the offense that worked so well a week ago against Eastern Michigan. As a reterback Jeff Driskel continually trying to take shots down 10 carries before the half. just 9 yards on four carries. In the fourth, the junior tailback saw touches in only the Gators opening drive, rushing for 37 yards. Then the overtime period came, and the plays were called with one goal in mind: keep feeding Matt Jones. Matt pushes the pile, coach Will Muschamp said. Hes 235 pounds and he ended up with about 150 yards rushing, a lot of that was second contact yardage. When youre able to get a guy inside hes able to lean forward and hes gonna get you four yards. sion, down 27-20, Jones rushed for 20 yards on four carries to set up a 9-yard Driskel touchdown pass to Robinson to tie the game. Jones had just one carry for two yards on the second overtime drive that resulted in a Frankie Velez 2027 lead as Kentucky took over for their possession. forced a third overtime, and the offense was stuffed, gaining only one yard, and Kentucky again lined this time the kick went wide right, and the Gators had a chance to put the game away for good. Instead of turning to Robinson, Florida called No. 24s number. Jones answered that call and delivered. The Florida offense lined up with the ball game on the line. First and ten from the Kentucky 25, Jones ran up the middle for three yards. On the very next down it was Jones again, this time trucking between the tackles for a 16-yard gain and yard line. And he didnt stop there. He play, and was downed inside the one-yard line. Driskel gave it to him again on the next play, resulting in a one-yard touchdown. I told him, youre carrying us. Were going to keep riding on your back. Were going to keep blocking for you, redshirt senior tackle Chaz Green said. And then we put it in his hands and he made some great things happen.Junior running back carries Florida in second half against KentuckyKan Li / Alligator Staff Stadium.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 gonna be willing to throw the ball vertically that much, theres going to be some 50-50 balls. We need to play the ball better, which we didnt and that was very frustrating. In the second half altogether, Florida allowed Kentucky to go 5 for 7 on third down and average 9.7 yards on that down in the process. ing yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions a number that could have been higher if any of Floridas 14 pass breakups didnt hit the ground. But the Gators took positives away from the game as well. The offense rallied in the second half, scoring on three straight drives to start the third quarter. Robinson showed that hes a playmaker on offense, catching a school-record-tying 15 catches for 216 yards, a number that ranks fourth in program history. No other Florida receiver had more than two catches against Kentucky on Saturday. Matt Jones separated himself from Floridas deep pack of running backs, tallying 156 yards on a career-high 29 carries and punching in the game-winning touchdown in the third overtime period four hours and eight minutes after play began. On Floridas three overtime drives, Jones carried the ball eight times for 45 yards, including the one-yard scamper up the middle to seal the game. Were explosive enough offensively to go make some plays, Muschamp said. And quite frankly as we moved forward in the season last year, we werent. As a competitor, you dont ever want to admit something like that, but its hard not to at times when you struggle to make 10 points. Safety Keanu Neal forced two a tipped pass by fellow safety Jabari Gorman, the second giving the Gators the ball back with 22 seconds left in regulation in a tie game. Neals career and helped the Gators bring their season turnover margin to +7 second in the country only to Notre Dame (+8). There were a lot of things that I messed up on, Neal said, but those interceptions just show what putting your mind back into things will do. Florida now shifts its attention trip to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to face No. UF knows the mistakes it needs to correct. Now it needs to correct them. I think weve got a mentally strong team, Driskel said. You didnt see guys hanging their heads on the sidelines. You saw guys that were competing and knowing that at the end of the game, weve got the players to make the plays and the coaches that were going to get us in the right situation. That was good experience for us. We know kind of how overtime works now. Not every win will be easy. The Gators learned that on Saturday. Its a very adverse game, Muschamp said. Theres going to be games like that when you play in our conference, and youve got to our guys found a way to win.Neal recorded two interceptions despite secondary struggles FOOTBALL, from page 1 3 KEY PLAYS 3 KEY PLAYS 3 KEY PLAYS SWAMP STUDS SWAMP STUDS SWAMP STUDS KEY STAT: +7 KEY STAT: +7 Standings Standings TURNING POINT TURNING POINT 36 36 30 KENTUCKY KENTUCKY FLORIDA FLORIDA 0 1 3 2 14 3 3 3 10 4 4 OT 30 F 0 3 17 0 0 16 36 Demarcus Robinson Matt Jones Kyle Christy
