Construction on the 25400 block of Southwest 15th Avenue caused the break, said Blaine Suggs, the utilities director for Newberry. Water was shut off for four hours. A rolling boil of one minute is wont be lifted until the city receives test results. In order for the notice to end, water samples have to be sent to a clearance, Suggs said. Suggs said the city sent a codered alert out to residents about the precautionary boil-water notice. The same process will be used to alert all residents as soon as the water is safe to use again, he said. Suggs said its unknown how much water spilled out during the break. It disrupts their life, naturally, Suggs said. People want to know when they can start using the water to cook again. Nareth Meth, owner of Cilantro Taco in Newberry, said the notice affected business. Weve been buying ice from Sams Club for the past few days, Meth said.

MAHOGANY BROWNAlligator Contributing WriterAs UF tackles sexual assault awareness, the White House is taking on its own campaign to address the issue. President Barack Obama will unveil a campus sexual awareness campaign titled Its On Us on Friday stop sexual assaults. Jacqueline Adadi, a 21-year-old public relations senior, said Obamas upcoming announcement comes at the right time to deal with UFs sexual assault cases. I think its great that the government wants to take a more proactive role in whats going on on college campuses, she said. Rita Lawrence, the coordinator for UFs interpersonal violence prevention peer education group, said the ads that have been circulated are not only geared toward men. Its more about supporting the survivors of sexual violence, she said. It is not targeted towards a Lawrence said that best way to raise awareness about sexual assaults is through being educated on the topic. I would highly encourage everyone, no matter their gender identity, to take classes that deal with oppression in any of its forms, whether that be due to gender, race, class, ability, sexual orientation, education, size or socio-economic status, she said.UF reacts to Obama plan LESLEY WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterA new organic market will open west of 13th Street next semester, featuring fresh meat, local produce and a juice bar.

Gainesville population, according to last years census data. Eighty to 90 percent of people will still get married at some point in their lives, Harris said. They may just be waiting until after college. Some students insist Gainesvilles party culture is leading to more hookups and fewer serious relationships. Britany Holmes, a 22-year-old Santa Fe nursing student who transferred from UF, said shes abstained from relationships since her freshman year. I just realized that I didnt really have time to maintain any relationships, Holmes said. Everyones out there looking to hook up, and if you are someone looking for a stable relationship, your choices are slim to none. She said social media and technology play a large part in the dissolution of dating culture. Im sitting here and trying to make a future for myself, she said.

She is getting married in December to her high school boyfriend, Jordan Clear, but the majority of her friends have never dated. I think that people who are in relationships tend to be in serious ones, and people who arent tend to like it that way, Clark said. It just kind of depends if you value that person and that relationship over what singleness has to offer. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014Gabriella Nicholas / Alligator StaffCelebrating HeritageA spoken word artist performs during UFs Hispanic Heritage Month Opening Ceremony on Wednesday in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.

Radical Rush, an organizational fair featuring 25 different alternative groups throughout Gainesville, will be on campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Some of the groups that will be there include The Fine Print, Wild Iris Books, Gainesville Roller Rebels and UF Amnesty International. The fair was also on campus Wednesday and at Santa Fe College earlier in the week. One of the event organizers, here at UF has been fairly steady, especially since the study abroad fair is going on. The Civic Media Center, a local alternative library and reading room, started Radical Rush in 1998 as a response to Greek rush week, said Nailah Summers, 26, who is also an event coordinator. The fairs goal is to show students both onand off-campus alternative groups, Summers said, the majority of which are politically focused and community based. On Friday, the Civic Media Center will host a pizza party and karaoke at 7 p.m. another opportunity for the groups to socialize with each other, Cooke, 22, said. Its a chance to build bridges with the vendors and the new volunteers, she said. Gainesville Citizens for Alternatives to the Death Penalty was one of the many vendors at the fair, aiming to raise awareness about the death penalty, said Miriam Welly Elliott, co-coordinator of the group. Volunteers typically sign birthday cards and holiday cards for inmates on death row, she said. There are usually over 400 cards that we sign, she said. The Repurpose Project was also at the fair, letting students know about its new location on Northeast 23rd Avenue, which will be near Satchels, and its mission to tubs, sinks and paperclips into sellable items Art students love us because we have a lot of useful material for them and their art, said Lauren Corley, a 19-year-old UF sustainability major.On-campus fair showcases alternative local organizations WHAT IS THE GOOD LIFE?

He also said the personal essay gives Admissions the opportunity to hear from students in a way not available through test scores or activities. Bruno Paes-Leme, an 18-year-old UF biomedical engineering freshman, said exploring the good life is a way for students to embrace individuality. I appreciate that they recognize that none of us here are blank slates, but rather people who are full of rich cultures, ideas and aspirations, and that each of us have something of value to bring to the table, he said. For Stephanie Diaz, a 19-year-old UF health science sophomore, the prompt is too much to ask of high school seniors. I think its unfair to ask them at this stage in their life, she said.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 5 IT RUNS UNTIL OCT. 14. MAHOGANY BROWN & ANNIE GARCIA-TUNON Alligator Contributing WritersThe Gainesville Latino Film Festival kicked off its 10th anniversary Friday with a night of commemorating all the individuals who helped make the event possible for so many years. The festival runs until Oct. 14. and celebrates the works of Latinos in the entertainment industry with salsa concert and exhibits of Latin culture at several downtown venues including the Hippodrome State Theatre and The Wooly, at 20 N. Main St. During the opening ceremony, the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts burst with laughter and chatter as a crowd of people the auditorium. A number of people were honored for their contributions to GLFF and the founder, Victoria CondorWilliams, gave a speech celebrating the 10 years the festival has been active in the Gainesville community. I thought that this medium of the art and the cinema can bring an understanding of our community and the awareness of different kinds of challenges that the Latino community face here in the United States, she said. Eric Segal, education curator of academic programs at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, which is hostrelate with its screening location, but the museum tried to connect the exhibits and the festival. He said they made special exhibitions to celebrate the anniversary. We have about a half dozen works of Latin American art, and we have a larger exhibit on the Kuna people from Panama, he said Rosy Padron, a volunteer at UFs Institute of Hispanic-Latino Cultures, said she, as a Latina, feels that the events are more of an introduction to the culture for non-Latinos. However, the 20-year-old UF history sophomore said she believes that spreading the Latin culture in Gainesville is important. Its crazy to think that it is even happening in Gainesville, and it is the 10th year, Padron said. So it is cool that it is becoming a tradition. Vice president of the Latina Womens League Victoria Gomez de la Torre shared the goals of GLFF and the message the organization hopes to leave with people who attend the festival. Each one of us from each different country that we come from has many different individual identities that we bring with us, Gomez de la Torre said. The best way to give that out to the community is by bringing our movies.Latino Film Festival celebrates 10 years with art exhibits, salsa concert MELISSA MIHMAlligator Staff Writermmihm@alligator.orgA Gainesville man was arrested after police say he tried to rob a UF Health employee on his way to work early Wednesday morning.

NATION THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSchool police departments across the country have taken advantage of free military surplus gear, stocking up on mine-resistant armored vehicles, grenade launchers and scores At least 26 school districts have participated in the Pentagons surplus program, which is not new but has come under scrutiny after police responded to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, last month with tear gas, armored military trucks and riot gear. Now, amid that increased criticism, several school districts say theyll give some of the equipment back. Nearly two dozen education and civil liberties groups sent a letter earlier this week to the Pentagon and the justice and education departments urging a stop to transfers of military weapons to school police. the nations second-largest school district covering 710 square miles and enrolling more than 900,000 students said it would remove three grenade launchers it had acquired because they are not essential life-saving items within the scope, duties and mission of the districts police force. But the district plans to keep the 60 M16s and a military vehicle known as an MRAP used in Iraq and Afghanistan that was built to withstand mine blasts. District police Chief Steve Zipperman told The Associated Press that the M16s are used for training, and the MRAP, which is parked off campus, was acquired because the district could not afford to buy armored vehicles that dents in a school shooting. Law enforcement agencies around the country equipped themselves during learner budget years by turning to the Pentagon program, which the Defense Department has used to get rid of gear it no longer needs. Since the Columbine school shooting in 1999, school districts increasingly participated. Federal records show schools in Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Michigan, Nevada, Texas and Utah obtained surplus military gear. At least six California districts have received equipment, state records show. In response to police tactics after a white policeman fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, the White House said it would review the surplus program, and Congress plans hearings on it. U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said while theres a role for surplus equipment going see what scenario would require a grenade launcher or a mine resistant vehicle for a school police department. In Florida, Rick Stelljes, the chief of Pinellas County Schools police, said Wednesday that They have never been used, and he hopes they are never needed. But, he said, they are something we need given the current situation we face in our nation. This is about preparing for the worst-case scenario.School district police stock up free military gear, draw criticism

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 AP photo Spring 2015 collection during Fashion Week in New York. ELLY AYRES Avenue WriterBy the time this goes to print, a mixed army of ultra-fem and utilitarian sportswear-clad supermodels (and their respective wake of editors, photographers, encers) will have already hopscotched from New York to London to Milan, now embarking on day two of Milan Fashion Week. And while clothing revelers everywhere wait for the other stiletto shoe to drop in Milan, they can at least recount the Spring 2015 fashion weeks, and thats New York Fashion Week. Heavy hitters Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Rag & Bone and Proenza Schouler suited up for a luxurious style safari. Field jackets with oversize satin pockets gave Marc Jacobs women a no-muss no-fuss attitude, and the brave beauty decision to go barefaced surely had makeup brands squirming in their seats. Cargo pants and belted satin gowns with waist-high slits ruled at Ralph Lauren, while Rag & Bone and Proenza Schoulers take on military majesty conjured up neutral palettes splashed with digitized camo or reptilian scales saturated in primary colors, respectively. more Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club than intimidatingly fashionable army, the military there amidst a uniform of garnet and black pinstriped shirts, coats and slacks. Double-breasted jackets gave way to star-spangled sweaters and day dresses, and all the Instagram world seemed to stop when Kendall Jenner emerged in a skimpy scalloped bikini. its muscles in one corner of the style ring, ladylike glamor as feminine as they come reigned supreme in the next. Guardian of all-things-glam, Diane von Furstenberg tossed a handful of on-point trends onto her runway. selves through colorful coats, gowns, while a peppering of gingham peeked out from beneath black and white or tropical tints, breathing a breath of the unexpected into the classic collection. And if anyone suspected von Furstenbergs dethroning any time soon, one need only look to lipped, smirking Naomi Campbell strutted down the catwalk, the truly fabulous women of the world.

For a venue known for its Deep End and Neon Liger parties, The Motor Room hosted a bit of a different party. Local musicians Bells and Robes showcased their new EP One Should See Sound with a spectacular listening party, organized in a joint effort between recently partnered UFs Swamp Records and Gainesville-based music streaming service Grooveshark. We wanted to pack out (The Motor Room), said Swamp Records president Breana Auberry. We also wanted students to realize we have talent here. We want them to realize they dont have to go out of town to see good music. Swamp Records gave Bells and Robes a performance slot at a showcase last spring. From there, the two formed a unique partnership, with Bells and Robes creating music for release and Swamp Records helping the producers with promotion and graphic design for its brand. Swamp (Records) helped gives us two incredible graphic designers who create art that exactly matches our music, said Bells and Robes member Dean Spaniol. He met fellow Bells and Robes member Luke Sipka at UF the two collected records and were inspired to create their own. On the day of the 2012 summer solstice, we EP by the winter solstice of the same year, Sipka said. They stayed true to their confollowing months and have now released their latest livetronica (electronic music with live instruments) EP. The two have a do-it-yourself set-up to produce their music, and they cite Led Zeppelin, Flying Lotus, Pink Grooveshark exclusively hosted One Should See Sound on its platform and promoted the release on the front page of the website for a week. It gets people aware of the partnership between Swamp Records and Grooveshark, said Grooveshark artist coordinator Jason Rubel. It also gets new audiences to hear Bells and Robes music, he said. Swamp and Grooveshark have another listening party for local band The Savants of Soul scheduled for Nov. 14.Local duo drops new album via local business partnership event music MICHELLE LCHAUAvenue WriterWanderers downtown Friday night found it hard to miss the bat signal projected on the face of the Hippodrome State Theatre. That night it wasnt a distress call for Batman but a signal from the Lubee Bat Conservancy. According to its website, the conservanwhose mission is to save bats through research and conservation breeding, put on a series of engagements throughout the weekend called Spot the Bat to strengthen public awareness of the organizations efforts and bat conservation in general. On Friday, the organization illuminated the Hippodrome from 9 p.m. to midnight with its bat signal, a green circle that contained the black outline of a cartoon bat and read Lubee BAT CONSERVANCY and The idea is to kind of call out to all the bat-friendly folks in Gainesville, said Anthony Mason, a development coordinator at Lubee Bat Conservancy. The organization also recruited about 16 volunteers to dress in glossy black bat wings from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and go about their daily lives, creating a buzz for Lubee among the gameday preparations. The volunteers, who were Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo students and conservancy staff members, formed a cloud of human bats. Curious passers-by asked the volunteers about Spot the Bat and were entered to win a private tour at Lubee if they uploaded a picture with the group to Instagram tagged with @ lubeebatconservancy and the hashtag #SpotTheBat. Jenna McMichael and Alex Henwood, keepers at the Lubee Bat Conservancy, said they both think the event achieved that goal. Bats are important in their ecosystems because of pollination and seed dispersal and are not to be feared. Bats are responsible for 95 to 98 percent of rainforest regrowth, McMichael said. We think that being part of the local community is really going to drive change for the species, Mason said.See bat symbols in the sky? No, its not Batman this time

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Murphy makes national teamFormer UF volleyball player Kelly Murphy made the alligatorSports Podcast Read the story on Page 15. JONATHAN CZUPRYN@jczuprynThe matchup between Florida and Alabama on Saturday will feature the Southeastern Conferences leading receiver, a member of the Biletnikoff Award watch list and one of the nations most potent deep-route threats. Amari Cooper will be there too. In just two games, Floridas Demarcus Robinson has stolen the spotlight from Cooper in the SEC after recording 21 catches for 339 yards, including three touchdowns. His 169.5 receiving yards per game paces the SEC and is second in the country. The sophomores 15-reception performance against Kentucky which tied Carlos Alvarezs school record set back in 1969 was enough for him to earn a spot on the Biletnikoff Award watch list Tuesday. At times, I was like Man, is Demarcus (Robinson) the only receiver we have? It felt like every time he was really impressed in how he performed against Kentucky and really excited to see him develop because hes still very young and defenses are going to have to game plan against him, which is only going to leave other receivers open. So were going to need him. was expected to make this kind of impact as a freshman in 2013. catches in seven games. Now with his suspensions behind him, Robinson has receiver.

The junior Buck linebacker is the only player on Floridas defense that has more than two quarterback hurries on the season. Against Kentucky on Saturday, win with four of UFs nine quarterback hurries. We scheme around teams and around those schemes we have jobs to do, Fowler said. So weve got to sit by them jobs and our job is to, you know, contain the quarterback and thats what we did. Because of Kentuckys fast pace on Saturday the Wildcats ran 78 plays Florida did not have the opportunity to sub out its defensive linemen as often as it hoped to, and it showed I think both teams looked a little gassed by the end of the game, but thats just part of it, UF defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. I think our guys played with really good effort, competed well and they were still making plays and pressuring at times at the end. loosa, Ala., to take on the No. 3 Crimson Tide on Saturday, Durkin plans to rotate between eight and 10 guys on the defensive line. And with Alabama having a trio of running backs in T.J. Yeldon, Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake that can carry their own against Florida, the defensive line needs consistency UF working on pass rushSEE D-LINE, PAGE 15JOHNSONS JOURNALJameis Winston doesnt care. Thats the only explanation I have for edly standing up in the FSU student union and saying an obscene phrase out loud for all to hear. It was passed around Twitter on Tuesday, and it was announced Wednesday that the reigning Heisman trophy winner will Florida States toughest tests Clemson. Saying things like how can he not understand who he is? and he has to be more self aware arent giving Winston enough credit. He would truly have to be an idiot to not get the status he has on campus. Those things are often said by onlookers that cant fathom how he keeps popping up on the negative side of the news cycle. I just dont think anyone can be that dense. So I have a counter to that notion: What if Winston does get it, what if he does grasp his status on the national scale but he just doesnt really care what you or I think? To the victor go the spoils in this society, and everyday walking around Tallahassee they are shoved in Winstons face. His Heisman, the teams success and the attention paid to him. Just the mere fact something Winston said in jest became a half suspension in one of the biggest games of his season is testament enough to his reach. On social media I see everyone being so puzzled with how these things keep on happening and I keep coming back to the idea that maybe Winstons just apathetic to your tweets and your outrage that he probably isnt looking at anyway given coach Jimbo Fishers team-wide in-season ban on social media use. To be clear: I dont think Jameis Winstons attitude is a good thing. I dont think its the best idea to conduct yourself with an only its pretty juvenile to do so when you have Winston just doesnt careSEE JOHNSON, PAGE 16 Richard Johnson

GRAHAM HALLAlligator Writer@Graham311David Kilgore is the oldest athlete on Floridas cross country team, but he must feel like the youngest. The redshirt junior shares a birthday with senior Jimmy Clark on Nov. 21, and Eddie Garcia was born the day before on the 20th except David was born a year before both of them, in 1991. Hell turn 23 the day before the Gators travel to Terre Haute, Ind., for the NCAA Championship. But thats awhile from now. For now, Kilgore is just relieved Gator out of the way a third place tational on Aug. 29. A reserve runner for two years with the 2013 National Champion Colorado Buffaloes, Kilgore transferred to UF this year in an attempt to reignite a collegiate career that and several meets. But David never truly felt as comfortable out west as he did in his home state of Florida. I did realize when I was out there how much I wanted to come back to Florida, Kilgore said. I realized how much I love Florida. David moved to Palm Bay, Fla., when he was just 4 years old. His parents, Kevin and Dorothy, lived in Lakenheath, a village in Suffolk, England. But Florida is really the only place he can remember. Slated with an illustrious high school career one that had him named Florida 1A State Champion in 2010, win a FHSAA state chamrunner-up teams David headed out west to run at Colorado, which is consistently a cross country powerhouse behind 19-year head coach David was running with the Buffaloes, a motto so prevalent in more named his season-detailing book after it. He was so excited to join the top team in the country, he posted a selfie of himself in a black and gold Buffalo shirt to announce his decision. But David would redshirt his freshman year in 2011. It wasnt where he thought he would be, but he knew he could grow in the program and only get better as a runner. said. I wouldnt say I regret it, because I learned a lot, but its certainly mixed feelings. The following year, David would run two races as a reserve runner for the Buffaloes. ished 23rd in the Rocky Mountain Shootout. one on the team does that, Kilgore said. He was just thankful for the opportunity, even if he knew he could do more. He would string together weeks of great practices, and showed the potential and endurance that made Colorado assistant coach Billy Nelson so adamant that Kilgore was right for the program. all Colorado runners at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational, where he Things were looking up. After track season the following semester, David was hoping to make the team as a consistent member of the rotation, rather than a reserve runner. He showed in practice that he had the speed and endurance to be an integral cog in the cross country machine that is the Colorado Buffaloes. However, when the 2013 season rolled around, David again found himself a reserve runner on the team that would go on to win the National Championship. Despite his dejection, David continued to train and improve. He helped Colorado qualify for the Naeighth in the Pre-National Invitational 8k. saw myself improving, but I dont have any regrets, Kilgore said. But when David committed to he had no idea that he would have tude. Boulder, which sits a cool mile above sea level, can give people is shortened, often inducing coughing and tightness in the chest. These symptoms arent ideal for a sport that requires absolute control of your breathing mechanisms. The altitude made it nearly impossible for David to run at the highlevel he had performed at in high school, and it made running nearly unbearable at times. As hard as he trained, he couldnt overcome the problems that the elevation presented him. It seemed like mediocrity with Colorado, transfer to another program or quit the sport he loved. you might have made the wrong decision when you chose your college destination. It felt right for David at the time he had no way of knowing how his lungs would react. He loved his coaches, had made friends and was engaged to a fellow runner on the womens Colorado cross country team, Annie Kelly. It took an immense amount of strength for David to leave all the things he had come to love and cherish during his time in college. But if he wanted to be able to run comfortably and compete in what he loved, it seemed like he had no choice but to pack up and go home. UF coach Paul Spangler had a plan to build Davids endurance and speed using an exhaustive training regimen. Hes an interesting phenom in a sense, where its very rare that an athlete doesnt react well to altitude, Spangler said. He brings leadership to the group, hes an extremely hard worker, and no doubt that will rub off on this large freshman class. That leadership role is something David hopes to take a hold of. Hes working hard, trying to improve on the strides he made during his three years in Boulder. was impressive, especially because David spent most of his time as a long-distance runner. From what Ive been told, I do better at long distances, Kilgore said. Id prefer an 8k or a 10k. Although he hasnt run a 10k in his collegiate career, the endurance workouts Spangler has been putting Kilgore through have brought forth missing outside the sunny state of Florida. Hes a workhorse, Spangler said. He comes to practice everyday, and whenever someone comes from another program theyre kind of set in a system. And hes really come in and embraced our system and really done a phenomenal job, and having Mark (Parrish), Jimmy (Clark) and Eddie (Garcia) be the same age as him and have similar so he comes to practice everyday and wants to work hard and gets in those workouts and competes with those guys. On Saturday, David will compete on UFs Mark Bostick Golf Course for the Mountain Dew Invitational, since he left in 2010. Its a relieving feeling to come home. But hes not regretting the past just learning from it. If I had never left Florida, I would have always regretted not experiencing that, Kilgore said.

Its what players work toward the entire time theyre on a team. But for Mackenzie Dagostino, it means learning the way her teammates play. And so far, shes doing all right. talent on the team or the role Dagostino plays when setting up her teammates. their junior setter. In just seven games, Dagostino has come into her own and led Florida in a solid start to the 2014 season. So far shes broken her career single-game assists record twice, has a total of 286 assists in seven games and is second in blocking with 16, behind 6-foot-4 freshman middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan. match so she can develop her setting and chemistry with her teammates, most spehad to learn to set the ball higher to help Alhassan hit the ball with her full power. at the stats from this past weekend, Dagostino said. Rhamat hit crazy numbers, so its all in practice and all making sure that you consistently work on something in order to get it. Its like any player, any setter, any hitter, any passer making sure they get that perfect pass, its just the repetition and the consistency that gets you to the achieving goal. success against No. 6 USC after two big losses to then-No. 7 Florida State on Sept. 4 and No. 2 Texas on Sept. 6. if the team boasted a 7-0 record so Florida can spot and correct errors something that was important in its win over USC.

the clout that Winston has, but nothing about public sentiment is going to get him to change and I think thats pretty clear. It requires taking something away from him that he loves maybe more than once to get through to somebody. You see, the interesting thing about Jameis Winston is he doesnt have to answer to you or I or anyone really outside of his family and his team and because FSU has not properly taken an enough is enough stance. I believe they did yesterday. He continued like business as usual, since as far as hes concerned, business was usual and yesterday was a tipping point. Im aware he was suspended from the baseball team following crab-gate, I assume baseball is important to him, but it isnt something that appears to be on schedule to pay him millions of dollars this time next year. What Winston did on its face does not merit suspension, it merits a talking to from Jimbo Fisher, and maybe some windsprints after practice for what I regard as jockish behavior. But combined with the other things pantly when you are who he is he forced FSU to act. I dont really think this suspension was initiated by Fisher. Its got to go higher than that, and its evidenced pretty clearly by the fact that the statement released by the school was attached to athletics director Stan Wilcox and interim president Garnett Stokes. Winston embarrassed them and made them look foolish while the school is in the midst of a highly contentious search for a new president and while the NFL continues to make an ass of itself seemingly every hour on the hour. The public relations climate a football player exists in nowadays along with Winstons prior character demerits both alleged and proven shows that what he You cant force Winston to change and hes not dense enough to be oblivious to who he is. I simply refuse to believe that. I subscribe to the notion that hes just apathetic, and if he continues to act out, the school will be forced to take extra measures to correct that because Winstons attitude will leave them no choice. Saturday night, making the 6-foot-2 receiver Driskels primary go-to pass catcher. Hes a guy that can get open and make people miss in space, Driskel said. Thats something that you want in a receiver. Hes going to have to continue to develop and make big plays, along with the rest of the receiving corps. Despite Robinsons astonishing start to the 2014 campaign, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said there are always things to work on. His wife, Britt Roper, agrees. You know I was coming home and my wife, shes an old sports reporter so she knows something about football and she goes, Oh but his ball security, Roper said. I said, Well lets just put him on the bench. You dont want to play him. You want, well put him on the bench. We wont play him. She goes, Wait a second. Hold on. Joking aside, Roper knows the importance of diligent preparation when facing Nick Sabans Crimson Tide. As Dukes offensive coordinator in 2010, Roper was pitted against Alabamas defense. The Blue Devils scored only 13 points compared to the Tides 62. ously, and Ive watched it since then to try to learn anything from it, Roper said. But we felt like, for that season, that really hurt us for a couple of weeks, that a was tough to get over That was a long day. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2014Kan Li / Alligator StaffFlorida State coach Jimbo Fisher talks to quarterback Jameis Winston (5) dur ROBINSON, from page 13Robinson still has room to improve JOHNSON, from page 13
