Despite the daylong rain, students showed up to class with helmets in hand and scooters at the ready. The rain stopped just as the festivities began around 4:10 p.m. The events consisted of an upure-eight event. Teams used their knowledge of physics and scooters to help them compete for their times. Competitors were allowed to push off the ground to start but were given a two-second penalty for every misstep after. Teams chose their lightest members for the uphill race and their largest members for the downhill race, hoping to use size eight competition, batteries were dying and scooters were skidding, the events. Ifju said the Olympics get students to understand the mechanics of the scooter, and to evaluate the performance of each scooter before the project begins. Were actually applying what we learn in school, said Daniela Soyos, a 22-year-old UF mechanical engineering senior and student in Ifjus class. This is breaking down something thats actually seen in real-life applications. The competition lasted an hour. Team 20, consisting of six seniors, won the overall competition after winning the uphill race and placpetition. The team comprised of the graduate teaching assistants, riding their tricked-out scooter, were utterly humiliated by the younger, more hungry undergraduate teams, Ifju said. No students or scooters were injured during the games. SCOOTER, from page 1

UF ALUMNI ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterThe 352 is now represented on primetime television. ABCs new drama, How to Get Away with Murder, premiered Thursday and has Gator alumnus Lenny Platt on its cast The 2006 criminology graduate said he still has the Gainesville phone number that came with a new phone he bought as a student. I kept the number proudly, the 30-yearold said. I have no plans to change it. Before settling in Gainesville, Platt was born in Philadelphia, where he lived until tically in his backyard, he was exposed to I was immersed in it, he said. It fueled my appetite for cinematic and dramatic arts. At UF, he took classes in criminology for his major, mass communication for his minor and theater just for fun, he said. A lover of crime shows like Dexter, he said his most memorable UF class was forensics. But then he would write, direct melded his studies and passions, becoming a law student at the Benjamin N.

Im glad I went to a school as rich and vibrant as UF. friends in the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity School of Journalism and Communications. Platts brother Chris, a 20-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore, said some decision to attend UF. Lenny always said his college years were some of the best of his life and that this school gave him some lifetime friends, Chris said. I feel some solidarity with him now that Im a Gator. I can relate to him more, and I try to catch him up about whats changing here. Platt said while he knew he wanted to pursue acting, he strived to become a wellrounded person, adding entertainment lawyer and BBQ Film event production company partner to his resume. Being a Gator also had a hand in his character building. The UF community may notice some similarities between Tim cluding their haircuts. Tebow, Platt said. Tebow is Christian, a of course Tebow would never be embroiled in a murder mystery. Fourteen million people tuned into the How to Get Away with Murder pilot featuring names like Academy Award nomiI watched the show last week and popped up, Chris said. Im rooting for him even though hes likely a murderer. Journalism interim chair and associate professor Ted Spiker also watched the they were at UF, and they keep in touch. I was thrilled to see Lenny on the show Thursday, Spiker wrote in an email. Lenny is so humble and passionate about what he does, and Ive always loved that he embraces all kinds of new adventures. This is a great new one for him. Platt said while working on the show is daunting, he is excited to see his character grow in substance. Seeing the shows ads on subways and taxis is humbling and surreal, he said. A couple of nights after we saw How there he was on that show, too. And I think thats the way its going to be we are all going to see a whole lot of him.Alumnus appears on ABC show How to Get Away With Murder THEY ARE BOTH 36.

She said one of her primary research interest areas is public opinions of water quality and quantity and how they have impacted the agriculture and natural resource industry. I think one of the reasons I was most surprised and pleased with this award was its largely an industry award, not a faculty award, Lamm said. So its a little different from other awards and special in that way because its being recognized for my work actually impacting the industry itself. Since 2010, Hutton has worked as an assistant professor of horticultural sciences at UFs Gulf Coast Research and Education Center. Hutton earned his doctorate from UF in horticulture sciences in 2008. His research focuses on advanced tomato resistance to bacterial spots and developing machine-harvestable tomatoes. Hutton hopes the award will shed more light on the tomatobreeding industry in Florida, which is valued at close to $500 million each year. breeding program in the state and one of the few public tomato breeding programs in the nation, he said.

Fall 2014 Elections: A stand against one-party ruleIn the Spring of 2014, The Independent Florida Alligator endorsed the Swamp Party for the Student Government executive elections. We expressed reservations about the potential for one-party rule in SG but determined that Swamps them worthy of a formal endorsement. During the Fall 2014 SG Senate campaign, the steady march toward one-party rule has continued, now that Swamp is the Ordinarily, we would encourage all UF students to exercise their right to vote for and elect senators to represent them in SG. But with the exception of the independent candidates running in the Hume and District B races, such votes would be rendered meaningless by the Swamp Partys dominance of the ballot. The Swamp Party has produced a number of platform points that are worthy of support. The partys plans to improve safety by expanding nighttime transportation options and widening the off-campus reach of UF Alerts are encouraging. Swamp also plans to increase the transparency of course costs by listing textbook and access code fees during course registratheir education, so this is a step in the right direction. Despite the strength of its platform, the Swamp Partys sketchy past and shady campaign tactics cannot be ignored. Swamp may very well have the best interests of UF students at heart, but the partys laudable ends do not justify the questionable means it has used to gain and consolidate its power. SGs inexorable decline into one-party dominance is not solely the fault of the Swamp Party. Leaders of opposing groups in particular the Students Party failed to capitalize on students discontent with SG representation and the UF populations desire for substantive change. Through the highs and lows of the various opposition parties, Swamps relentless, well-oiled campaign machine has continued to operate at its usual high level. Swamp leaders have pledged to consider alternative points of view even after they take full control of the Senate. However, the groupthink and solidarity that has characterized the Swamp Party in previous years make such statements dubious at best. We encourage UF students to support the independent candidates running to represent them. We believe that they will bring important, diverse viewpoints and priorities to SG. For the rest of UF, an endorsement of the Swamp Party would be wholly irrelevant. Regardless of how many students vote in this weeks elections, Swamp will claim dominance over the Senate once the results have been tallied. We encourage all UF students to consider the threat that oneparty rule poses to responsive and democratic representation at our school. Despite the fact that Swamp is running mostly unopposed, the right to vote is powerful, and all students should exercise that right at the polls today and Wednesday. UF deserves a diverse and vibrant SG, but only if its constituents make it so. 44 TOTAL VOTES29% YES 71% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgMondays question: Are you getting free coffee today? Todays question: Are you going to vote in the Student Government elections? Censorship, despite intent, is unpatrioticLast week in Jefferson County, Colorado, nearly a thousand high school students walked out of their classrooms in protest of proposed curriculum changes to their history classes. The walkouts were staged in response to a proposal submitted by the new conservative school board, which suggested setting up a review committee to make sure Advanced Placement U.S. history classes promote patriotism, free enterprise and respect for authority. According to a draft of the proposal, AP U.S. history teachers would have to present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage, while being prohibited from encouraging or condoning civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Teachers and students in several schools across the district have understandably expressed concern that this review committee will lead to censorship of educational materials. School board member Julie Williams, a supporter of the review committee, criticized the current AP U.S. history curriculum for focusing too much on gender, class, race, ethnicity and grievance. In her eyes, emphasizing the historical struggles of different groups is Americanbashing. I understand the desire to encourage students to be proud of their country, but that patriotism must not come at the cost of distorting or censoring history. This proposal would essentially strip educators of their ability to offer students a comprehensive course on U.S. history. Instead of encouraging students to think critically and examine how the past shapes the present, teachers would be restricted to only presenting materials that portray America in a wholly favorable light. These changes would essentially transform a collegelevel history class into a political platform with the goal of endorsing American pride while simultaneously discouraging civil disobedience. In addition to being a shameful attempt to propagandize education for ideological purposes, the proposal is also inherently un-American. One of the most cherished rights of an American citizen is the ability to protest unjust laws. Such protests contributed to the abolition of slavery, the approval of womens suffrage and the social progress achieved during the civil rights movement of the 1950s and s. If people werent willing to stand up against the government and make their voices heard, these monumental steps in our history might never have occurred. Civil disobedience has been essential for driving positive social change since the founding of our country. The students who are rightfully protesting against the school boards proposal have been backed by the College Board, which issued this statement of support: These students recognize that the social disorder can and sometimes must be disrupted in the pursuit of liberty and justice. The board emphasized these ideas are essential within the study of a college-level, AP U.S. History course. The Jefferson County School Board majority may believe its actions will promote patriotism, but censorship in the history classroom will only promote ignorance and indifference to the social struggles that have made our nation what it is today. Students dont deserve to be robbed of the challenging and rewarding experience of a collegelevel history class, and they most certainly dont deserve to be treated as children who need to be told what to think. Being patriotic isnt about blindly loving your country your countrys strengths, acknowledging its weaknesses which to live. their education, maybe the school board will learn what true patriotism is.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Once again, the Swamp Party walloped the competition in the student Senate elections this week. Whats ironic about that statement is that as Im writing this article, not a single ballot has been cast. The certainty that Swamp will once again walk away with Student Government elections can in no way be called into question for two simple reasons: minority parties and candidates mounted no effective opposition to Swamp this year, and the Swamp Party has a complete lock on the constituency groups namely fraternities and sororities they need to win. Despite Swamps overwhelming dominance, Swamp representatives still campaign throughout campus, handing out stickers and occasionally looking desperate enough to strike up a conversation with fellow students. The image of Swamp campaigning is almost as hilarious as someone campaigning for Vladimir Putin in Russia. Lets face it: like Putin, its an absolute truth that Swamp will win, regardless of if any candidate or party representative campaigns on Swamps behalf. Heres a question for Swamp: if you have no competition and have near totalitarian control over SG, why bother to campaign? Is it to give off the appearance of a functioning democracy on UFs campus, or do you think it makes the party look good? Now, Swamp is not entirely to blame for its overwhelming majority. The Students Party the minority party in the Senate has ceased to exist, and since no other party appears ready to challenge the majority, Swamp rules supreme. Generally, the issues surrounding a one-party rule of SG would not be a big deal. After all, were not talking about legislative and governing bodies that rule able multi-million-dollar annual budget. Although the minority was close to taking control of SG following the Spring 2012 elections, the dominance of the Swamp Party or the Unite Party, as it was previously known has never truly been threatened. break the Greek voting bloc, devise a strategy to win almost every other vote or drastically increase turnout. If this seems damn near impossible, thats because it probably is. Any minority party seeking to challenge Swamps dominance has a tremendous uphill climb. Maybe comparing the Swamp Party to the Russian autocracy is a bit unfair. After all, nothing in Swamps policy platform is particularly nefarious. Swamp wants more solar power on campus and hand saniwhich seem like noble endeavors. Although Swamp has engaged in questionable campaign tactics in previous elections, none of those were anywhere near as heinous as the persecution and torture faced by Russian dissidents. Swamp may offer a slew of positive-sounding proposals. However, what drives the majority to work ity that can actually challenge Swamps rule. Its likely that our student fees also known as university taxes would be better spent if a functioning minority could challenge Swamps spending proposals. UF students deserve additional checks and balances within the Senate to ensure that our fees are spent wisely and arent wasted by Swamp. As a grad student, I often feel far removed from UFs complicated and arcane political process. However, from an outsiders perspective, it certainly seems that we can and should do better to provide a truly democratic or representative system. SGs $20 million budget, largely comprised of student fees, is nothing to scoff at or ignore. Turnout is likely to be excruciatingly low for the elections this week and, unless major reforms happen, little will break Swamps control over SG, nor will a serious minority party challenge Swamps authority. If that ever happens, most of us will be long gone, complaining about how our state or federal governments spend our tax dollars and completely forgetting that we conveniently ignored how our peers spent our funds while we were students at UF. For the time being, we might as well enjoy Swamps rule because its not going anywhere. Joel Mendelson is a UF grad student in political campaigning. His columns usually appear on Wednesdays.Swamps dominance indicates a dysfunctional democracy at UFColumn Joel In January, Ohio inmate Dennis McGuire suffered a 25-minute suffocation. In April, Oklahoma inmate Clayton Lockett died after 43 minutes due to a heart attack from an untested drug mixture. And just last month in Arigasped and snorted for almost his last breath. These events, coupled with Judge Cormac Carneys ruling that the death penalty is unconstitutional in California, have rightfully put the penalty by lethal injection under glaring scrutiny. Lawmakers must listen to voters and take the California ruling of the death penalty seriously in order to mend the system. As with advancements in been in existence for a long time should be checked. At ing is astonishing considering that the U.S. Supreme Court has, in the past, upheld death thal gas, electrocution and lethal injection. None of these olate the Eighth Amendments prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, according to the high court. Howevthat govern us. Justice must certainly be served on behalf of every victim, but the means of justice shouldnt mean more inhumane bloodshed, as in the case of Wood and others. Not only is capital punishment unconstitutional in that it is cruel and unusual, but there are also multiple areas that need work. The price tag of these executions is one such area. According to assessments by Judge Arthur Alarcon and Paula Mitchell in 2011, the cost of the death penalty in California comes up to more than $4 billion since 1978. If the governor commuted the sentences of those remaining on death row to life without parole, it would help save $170 million per year. Over the next 20 years, those savings accumulate to $5 billion. The effectiveness of not only the execution method itself but also the entire system is another area that needs repair. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, compared to states that do administer the death penalty, states that do not follow it have consistently lower rates of homicide. The gap has grown since 1990. According to these statistics, though the ultimate aim of condemning prisoners to death is to decrease the rate of murder in the society, something seems to be amiss. As stated in The Economist, the average prisoner who is executed in California has spent 25 years on death row much longer than the national average of nearly 16 years. sue seems to be that the long delays in executions fail to deter potential murderers out there. If the death penalty is the minds of the criminals before they commit the crimes, it doesnt serve a point. The victims families and friends should not be left out either. Most certainly, they deserve peace of mind. But people must understand that an eye for an eye only makes the world blind. The death penalty, in a sense, is simply based on revenge, a get-even measure that destroys people that have destroyed others. In the process, nothing is gained. the punishment, lawmakers need to focus all efforts on the root of the issue. Education might be one key factor in tackling homicide. According to The Mercury, 70 percent of this nations prison population has failed to receive high school diplomas. Long-term research has shown that if more is invested into pre-K education, graduation rates can be boosted by as much as 44 percent and keep young adults on the right side of the law. According to a 2013 Research and Development (RAND) report, correctional education programs for inmates are also effective those who participated were 43 percent less likely to become repeat offenders. Instead of investing so much into a penalty that is unconstitutional, inhumane, costly and ineffective all in one, preventive measures rather than consequential measures should pull more weight. The death penalty is a moral and meet its own end. Khyati Kohli is a columnist for The Daily Trojan.

8, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014Shayna Tanen / AlligatorDrills and Drizzles CAMPUS MARGARET AMENOAlligator Contributing WriterUF pharmacy students are promoting health care during American Pharmacist Month this October. The UF College of Pharmacys American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists wants students to understand the extensive role pharmacists play in tions. Pharmacists are one of the most accessible but under-utilized health care providers, said American Pharmacist Month co-chair Laura Robayo. As part of American Pharmacist Month, the organization is advertising on UF marquees to motivate students to get to know their pharmacists. The group will also volunteer at Walgreens senior day, where it will communicate the many ways in which pharmacists can have a positive impact on elderly health. Pharmacists are advocates for their patients, said Robayo, a 23-year-old UF second-year pharmacy student. They provide information so that patients can make informed medical decisions. Their breadth of knowledge enables them to assist patients in the management of various health conditions, she said. Pharmacists are taught to look at more than just the disease and the medication to treat it. Sometimes the best medication to treat a disease may not be the best medication option for the patient, said Carrie Hoffman, a 21-year-old UF second-year pharmacy student. A pharmacists role is to treat the patient not the disease. The role of a pharmacist is much more than medications. It is providing personalized attention and explanations to patients on an individualized basis. They are detail-orientated individuals who know a lot about drug therapy and health care, said Natalie Brumwell, a 20-year-old UF nutrition junior. The accessibility of a pharmacist at drugstores makes them excellent resources as well, Brumwell said. Some people are surprised to hear about all the career opportunities a pharmacist has, Brumwell said. There are also careers working in a clinical setting such as a hospital. I really liked the idea that pharmacists can be a go-to source within a community for health care advice. Outside of October, the organization hosts health screenings to educate the community about health care issues. The students also provide blood glucose control, prescription drug abuse and immunization information to the community. It may seem intimidating to a patient when asked, Do you have any questions for the pharmacist? Hoffman said. But, that is what the pharmacist is there for.Students spotlight health care in American Pharmacist Month ALEXANDRA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterGatorWell and the UF Counseling and Wellness Center are attempting to erase stigmas surrounding mental health issues at UF. The UF student health organizations released the Fall 2014 designs for UFlourish, a social marketing campaign collaboration, and this semester theyre targeting the LGBTQ and black student communities. tions after launching in Spring 2013. The campaigns main goals are to remove stigmas surrounding mental health issues and encourage students to use strategies to prevent mental illnesses, said Dr. Maureen Miller, director of GatorWell. it was very broad, appealing to all students, Miller said. dent populations that may be more at risk for stress issues. The marketing campaign, which encourages students to Keep it Real with friends and Just Ask for help, is being funded by a $296,000 federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The grant also supports the CWCs online programs designed to address suicide prevention on campus, Miller said. The campaign designs focus on LGBTQ and black student communities to promote using inclusive language when speaking about mental health issues. Its probably more effective than a broader scope, said Marcy Maycock, an 18-year-old UF health science freshman. Maycock has never been to the Counseling and Wellness Center but said she has considered it and recommended it to friends before. UFlourish aims to remind students that many resources are available to them through GatorWell and the CWC, Miller said. I dont have any needs for counseling, but if I did Id look into it, said Rachel Kraskow, an 18-year-old exploratory freshman at UF. According to the 2013 Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors annual survey, 46.2 percent of students experience anxiety, and 39.3 percent of students struggle with depression. Miller said the next phase of the UFlourish campaign is to expand dent populations. Were trying to reach as many different students through as many different channels as we can, she said.UFlourish: preventative mental health THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON The intruder who climbed a fence made it farther inside the White House than the Secret Service has publicly acknowledged, the Washington Post and New York Times newspapers reported Monday. The disclosures came on the eve of a congressional oversight hearing with the director of the embattled agency assigned to protect the presidents life. Citing unnamed sources three people familiar with the incident and a congressional aide the newspapers said Omar J. Gonzalez ran past the guard at the front door and into the East Room, which is was eventually tackled by a counter-assault agent, accordto report the news. In the hours after the fencejumper incident, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the suspect had been apprehended just inside the North Portico doors of the White House. The Secret Service also said that night that the suspect had been unarmed an assertion that was revealed to be false knowledged that Gonzalez had a knife with him when he was apprehended. Getting so far would have required Gonzalez to dash through the main entrance hall, turn a corner, then run through the center hallway halfway building, which spans 168 feet total, according to the White House Historical Association. Secret Service director Julia Pierson was scheduled to testify before a House committee the Sept. 19 incident. The new cant breach were expected to dominate the lawmakers inquiries. A Secret Service spokesman declined to comment on the latest details because of the ongoing investigation. It was a security lapse that could have had serious consequences if the intruder had been heavily armed and if the president and his family had been home. No one was hurt, but its the White House itself, raising the question of whether the latest breach is part of a pattern of delayed reactions to threats to the executive mansion. The Secret Service says that is not the case. And President Barack Secret Service to do its job. The Post reported over the weekend that the Secret Service did not immediately respond to in 2011, amid what the agency describes as uncertainty about where the shots originated. Four days later, it was discovered that at least one of the shots broke the glass of a window on the third level of the mansion, the Secret Service said. The Secret Service has been trying to rehabilitate its image since a 2012 prostitution scandal erupted during a presidential visit to Colombia. Earlier this year, Pierson met privately with senators after an agent was found drunk in a hotel during a presidential trip to the Netherlands. against the agents, and Pierson said neither incident was representative of the entire agency. got far past White House front door Pharmacists are one of the most accessible but under-utilized health care providers.American Pharmacist Month cochair Each different campaign focuses on different student populations.director of GatorWell


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 Kan Li / Alligator StaffFirst Asian BoyActor, rapper, comedian and YouTube celebrity Timothy DeLaGhetto performs at the Asian Kaleidoscope Month ceremony in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom on Monday night. THE DISEASE IS SIMILAR TO MAD COW. JULIA LOPEZAlligator Contributing WriterAs a neurological disease spreads in deer throughout the country, Florida hunters are reminded of importation laws prohibiting out-of-state deer, moose or elk carcasses from crossing state borders. The law even includes deer semen, said Tony Young, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman. If the sperm is infected and used for breeding purposes, it has the potential to spread the Chronic Waste Disease, which is comparable to mad cow disease. Once a deer is infected with the disease, it is fatal, Young said. That deer will eventually die. The disease destroys the animals brain and causes the body to deteriorate from the inside, said Samantha Wisely, a UF wildlife ecology and conservation professor. It is referred to as the Nose to Nose disease because it can only be passed from deer to deer through nose exposure, Wisely said. It most likely cannot be passed to humans, and no cases have been reported in Florida. Still, Young urged precaution when handling animals. I wouldnt kiss them on the nose anytime soon, he said. Out-of-state deer meat can be transported to Florida, but state the deer was shot, Young said. If hunters want to keep deer heads, it still has to be taken to a taxidermist in the state it was shot. The infective agent is more likely to be concentrated within the brain, eyes, spinal cord, lymph nodes, tonsils and spleen of the animal, Wisely said. The disease cannot be killed, and this infective agent called a prion can be accidentally deposited into the environment where it can remain for years and infect other deer. The disease causes plaque buildup in the deers brain which causes neurological damage. There are several neurological diseases that run in Florida deer. Not much is understood about why the deer have these diseases, Wisely said. Sometimes we see big jumps, Wisely said of the throughout the East Coast. She said the disease is spreading because infected deer are being imported into uninfected states so people can hunt them. When deer farmers sell and shift animals from state to state, they can spread the disease as well. Physical features that indicate a deer is infected include malnutrition, saliva pouring out of the deers mouth and a confused look on its face, she said.Hunters urged not to bring infected deer from other statesRESEARCH CHLOE STRADINGERAlligator Contributing WriterDr. David Freeman still remembers putting Black Bart to sleep. The black stallion suffered from major complications after surgery to manage the colic that strangled parts of his small intestine. Black Barts death inspired Freeman, a professor of large animal surgery at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, to create a grading system to determine if horses with colic caused by small intestinal strangulation actually need parts of their intestines removed. To this day, I strongly believe if I had not resected it he would have Freeman and a team of researchers collected data at UF and the University of Illinois on 35 cases from 1996 to 2011. They came up with a subjective grading system that involves surgeons evaluating the color and movement of a piece of intestine after its released from strangulation. Sparing horses from removal saves owners money and horses from complications, he said. Ali Unger-Fink, a 20-year-old UF elementary education junior and equestrian team member, has had several horses get various types of colic. Her family owns a ranch with 30 horses in Southwest Ranches. ers, Unger-Fink said. The research was published in the Equine Veterinary Journal in 2013 and presented in July at the 11th annual Equine Colic Research Symposium in Dublin. Freeman said they received feedback from the symposium that people were interested in the advantages of the grading method. He said his research is still fairly new, so it is too soon to tell if his grading system with catch on. Freeman continues to use the method in surgeries at the UF Large Animal Hospital. About 75 horses per year go to surgery to treat colfrom the grading method.Prof helps horse illnesses with studyFreeman

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Florida basketball ranked by Sporting News Womens Tennis begins ITA qualifying rounds Read the story on Page 16.Kan Li / Alligator Staff MORGAN MORIARTY@Morgan_MoriartyFollowing a bye week for Florida, coach Will Muschamp and company turn their attention to their next test: a matchup in Neyland Stadium facing longtime Southeastern Conference Eastern Division rival Tennessee. The Gators last outing was a 42-21 beat down, suffered at the hands of the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide, in which the 645 yards given up on defense was the most of any team in Florida football history. The biggest criticism following the loss was the play of quarterback Jeff Driskel, who went 9 of 25 for 93 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Despite their poor perfordence levels remains high, and he takes the heat from the Florida fan base with stride. Thats part of it. He understands that, the fourth-year head coach said. I dont know if physically or mentally theres any tougher kid that Ive been around. He takes the heat and understands that comes with the territory. Driskel said the bye week came at an opportune time, and in the extra week he got to work with his receivers to develop more chemistry within the group. I think we got a lot of good on good action and I think that helps out a lot when you see a higher level of competition, Driskel said. We really didnt do too much differently, trying to hone in on some route concepts, make sure we know what were doing, make sure we are getting our eyes to the right spots and were looking at signals. Despite Driskels struggles against the Crimson Tides front seven and secondary, Muschamp made it clear that there will not be a change in play-calling in terms of executing less passing plays for Driskel on Saturday. He also said that there is no plan for a two-quarterback system with true freshman Treon Harris at this point in the season, as some speculated following the loss in Tuscaloosa. Muchamp said Monday that Driskel took the majority last week. Perhaps the most impressive statistical category for the Vol defense is on third down. Tennessee leads the conference and the nation in third-down conversion defense, holding op20.8 percent of the time on third down. As for Tennesses offense, it all starts with senior quarterback Justin Worley, who has drastically improved this season as opposed to years past. Worley ranks sixth in the SEC in passing average per game, accounting for 246 yards in the air per contest through four games. The Gators secondary, which has looked underwhelming against both Kentucky and Alabama, will be rotating different personnel this week as they prepare for Worley and the Vol offense. Brian (Pooles) repping some in the nickel. Duke Dawsons repping some at the safety position, Muschamp said. You know, between Jalen and the right combination there and continuing to rep Marcus in the nickel and at safety as well, The match up between FlorUF comes off bye week IAN COHEN@icohenb In 2012, Maddy Monserez did not start a single match. Nonetheless, the then-sophomore prepared, worked hard and stayed ready. Eventually, it paid off. Monserez originally a walk-on for UF led Florida past Tulsa in the high 16 digs. So far this season, Monserez has started just six of UFs 11 matches. But that has not stopped her from making an impact for the Gators in one way or another. No. 9 Florida has an abundance of physical talent, like freshman Rhamat Alhassans 37-inch vertical, sophomore Alex Holstons strong arm and junior Mackenzie Dagostinos effecZOOPS SCOOPThe guy who follows the guy that succeeds the guy is always the best guy to be. Let me explain. In just 12 seasons, Steve Spurrier cemented himself into college footballs history books after leading Florida to 122 wins, six Southeastern Conference championships and one national title. Now imagine having to follow that performance. Poor Ron Zook never stood a chance. In retrospect, Zook really wasnt that terrible despite his reputation in Gainesville. He garnered a .622 winning percentage in three years as Floridas head coach and recruited notable Gator talents such as Chris Leak and Dallas Baker. In fact, much of Urban Meyers 2006 national championship squad was comprised of Zooks recruits. So whats with all the hate for the Zooker? Well, he was the guy that succeeded the guy, also known as Steve Spurrier in this case. Barring a couple immediate SEC crowns and at least a bid for the national title, Zook stood little to no chance surviving at Florida. When the bar is set too high, even moderate success is considered failure. Actually, in some cases, if you have a different name from the guy then you already have failed. Remember the banners hanging around Gainesville calling for Zooks job the day he Standards high following success Jonathan Czupryn SEE COLUMN, PAGE 14 SEE VOLLEY, PAGE 14 SEE MUSCHAMP, PAGE 14 What (Monserez) expressed was, I may not be playing now, but Im gonna keep working hard because at some point, when this team needs me, Im gonna be ready.UF coach


tive jump serve. But UFs other strengths lay not in its physical gifts but in the contributions from its players found slightly further down on the depth chart. Maddy came to us as a walk on with year, Wise said. What she expressed was, I may not be playing now, but Im gonna keep working hard because at some point when this team needs me, Im gonna be ready. And in the (2012) NCAA tournament, she had the best match of any of us. While Florida attracts some of the toprated volleyball recruits around the nation, perhaps where it excels most is with its player development and walk-ons. Despite limited playing time this season, Monserez has a team-best .985 reception percentage to go along with her 67 digs, 15 assists and two service aces. When comparing her current stats to the the previous season, the Orlando native has almost surpassed her 113 digs in 74 sets from 2013. It isnt just the DNA. It isnt, you know, just some luck there in how tall you are, coach Mary Wise said of Monserez. You cant control her height and the prototype things you look for in volleyball. But you our senior captain. She is the heartbeat of our team. When Florida scouted Monserez in high a play alive. That mindset stood out to Wise. Before she had the volleyball IQ that she has now she was the player who just threw her body in front of the ball to keep it from landing, Wise said. What she showed just with pure guts ferred into her skill set and the plays she makes. From walk-on to defensive captain Monserez has taken on a much larger role than Senior starter Holly Pole was also a walkon when she joined the Gators in Spring 2011. Now shes considered one of the Southeastern Conferences top liberos and leads Florida with 137 digs. Monserez and Pole are listed at 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-7, respectively, with no outstanding physical attributes to boast. But the two seniors are two of the most respected leaders on the team, with Wise often dubbing Pole the teams on court coach. Were at the point now where if Holly misses a dig in practice or in a game, you see it on her face. Shes mad. She expects (to that shes playing with and the acceptance of the roles by Maddy and Taylor (Unroe), we are so lucky to have what we have. While Florida often relies on its taller players, leaping ability and strong offensive performances to dominate some of its opponents, Wise calls on other players for reasons thats arent always visible on the court. Its the senior leadership and the teaching skills those seniors have taken (on), Wise said. We went through the growing pains when they were young, but now were idas struggling secondary and the Tennessees wide receiving corps will be one to watch Saturday. The leader of the Volunteers group is Marquez North, who is averaging 47 receiving yards per game and has three touchdowns on the year. Redshirt sophomore Jason Croom leads the team in average yards per reception with 16. Theyve really improved themselves at the receiver position, Muschamp said. Marquez North and Jason Croom are both 6-4 plus guys ups in coverage down the 10 shots in the game. Despite losing to Alabama two weeks ago, Florida still has a chance to win the SEC East and represent the division in Atlanta. The next step in doing that comes this week as they take on the Vols. All the goals are still there, got a lot of football to play everythings out in front of us, lets go get it, Muschamp said. Theyre all must wins. When has it ever changed? 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2014Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffLibero Holly Pole (30) and defensive specialist Maddy Monserez attempt to dig the ball during Floridas 3-0 win against Ole Miss on Sunday in the OConnell Center. Monserez has team-best reception percentage, Pole leads in digs VOLLEY, from page 13 MUSCHAMP, from page 13Tennessee improved at wide receiver position this season Zook, Muschamp followed the guytook over? Its not like he even had a shabby coaching resume heading into the position. Zook had stints with three NFL teams and six Power Five college programs including a four-year gig with the Gators under Spurrier. Still, he wasnt good enough. How could he be? He wasnt Spurrier. So when Urban Meyer strolled into town, all he had to do was not be Zook. Step one: accomplished. Step two for Meyer was to at least show the illusion of progress by accomplishing what Zook had trouble doing. By defeating Tennessee, Georgia and Florida State all in the same season, Meyer gained more of a fanbase than Zook ever did in his tenure at UF. Gone was the pressure of following up a legend. All Gator fans wanted at that point was someone who wasnt ty brothers and maybe could beat the important rivals every once in a while. What they got was more than they could possibly imagine. In just six seasons half the time Spurrier spent in Gainesville Meyer cranked out 65 wins, two SEC championship squads and two national titles. More importantly, he had secured his place next to Spurrier as the (new) guy. So once again Jeremy Foley had the task of picking the guys successor and once again he went with a defensive minded coach that played defense back in college but had no prior head coaching experience. Sorry Will Muschamp, but just ask Zook how much being the guy after the guy sucks. Or ask Bill OBrien. Do you think he had planned on leaving Penn State after just two seasons? Or do you think the Joe Paterno obsessed fanbase up in Happy Valley drove OBrien to ditch college for the NFL? You can ask Frank Solich as well. He took over the for great Tom Osborne at Nebraska in 1998. In six seasons, Solich made six straight bowl games, including the national title game in 2001. However, a Big 12 Championship and 58 wins still werent enough to last in Lincoln. Seriously? The guy was hand picked by Osborne and still run out of town? Its foolish to think Muschamp had any real chance at sticking around here at Florida, but maybe his successor can without any of the absurd pressure and backlash both Muschamp and Zook received. So if youre interested in becoming the (next) guy for Florida, apply now! After this season, the bar will undoubtedly be lowered quite a few notches.
