ARIANA FIGUEROAAlligator Staff WriterAll but one seat in the UF Student Senate will be represented by the Swamp Party. While the unopposed Swamp Party swept up 49 seats in the Fall 2014 Student Government elections, independent candidate Preston Jones defeated Swamp Party candidate Rachel Laky for the sole Hume area seat with 61.2 percent of the vote. Jones pulled in 175 votes, and Laky raked in 108. A fatigued Jones, sunburnt from campaigning outside Hume Hall, was relieved. Im so thankful to the people of Hume and students of Hume who chose me as their senator, the 18-year-old UF civil engineering freshman said. I am so excited to be able to work to make the Hume area a better place. Although defeated, Laky may campaign again. Of course Im disappointed, but of course no regrets at all, the accounting freshman said. UF Supervisor of Elections Hans Rojas released the results Tuesday night without much fanfare; instead of a grand announcement on a stage outside of the Reitz Union like past elections, Rojas decided to hand out paper copies of the Reitz Union at 9:30 p.m. to save money. These elections saw the lowest turnout in recent history of 6,733 ballots, with 2,052 of those ballots cast on Wednesday. Spring 2014s election yielded 7,919 ballots, which fell behind Fall 2013s turnout of 8,766 ballots, according to Alligator archives.

CHABELI HERRERAAlligator Staff WriterIn a scathing ruling issued this week, Grooveshark lost a three-year legal battle for blatantly and consciously infringing on copyrights of nine major record labels. A federal judge ruled that the two founders of the Gainesville-based music streaming website and its employees violated the copyrights of about 6,000 songs from record labels including Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros. Records and Atlantic Recording Corporation. Grooveshark, which streams virtually any song in the world thanks to uploads from users, came into existence because of a loophole in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, exempting websites from responsibility for copyrighted content uploaded by users. The loophole was legal as long as Grooveshark agreed to take down copyrighted material each time record labels formally complained. But in an attempt to build the websites momentum in its early days of inception, circa 2006, Grooveshark violated this agreement. Instead, the two founders, Samuel Tarantino and Joshua Greenberg, started uploading songs personally, avoiding record company approval and licenses. According to the ruling, the founders acknowledged that their business plan was to exploit the record companies content to grow their own business, then beg forgiveness and seek licensing agreements. Tarantino and Greenberg not only uploaded their own content, but also urged employees to do the same.Music-streaming website Grooveshark faces falloutSTATE MELISSA MIHMAlligator Staff WriterAmericas third-worst small-town speed trap disbanded its police department Wednesday.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 Christina Callicott / AlligatorHacky SackingSIATech Gainesville senior Skylar Chavez plays hacky sack on Bo Diddley Community Plaza on Wednesday afternoon. ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writerafernandez@alligator.orgUF Health and UF launched a new system for faculty and staff Wednesday that will offer online professional training. The myTraining portal system, developed by Gainesville company SumTotal Systems aims to provide management of training records, training schedules, registration for professional and required classes as well as online training to both sets of employee groups. The myTraining program costs $200,000 a year, something Greg Hollingshead, director of human resource development at UF Health Shands Hospital, said is worth the investment. I know that sounds like a very large number, he said. But, when you consider the audiences we serve, thats a very large number as well. The two groups entered into an agreement with SumTotal Systems in January. The idea for a training of UF and Shands began a year ago. Jodi Gentry, assistant vice president for human resource services at UF, said the myTraining portal was an opportunity for the two groups to improve the way they offered training services to their respective employees. We were frequently asking faculty to complete training sponsored by UF or by UF Health Shands, she said. We saw it as an opportunity to share resources and improve our overall delivery of training. Before the program, it was not uncommon for either group to send employees to various locations to receive professional training. The new system will streamline access to both employee groups and provide easier access for new employees to access job training immediately. University faculty are employed by UF, while employees working in the hospital are employed by UF Health. Hollingshead said before the adoption of the new system, it was Health to manage the training of university faculty along with hospital staff. We have two employee groups that were including that we havent had to manage before, he said. The program will make it much more simple and reliable for us.University, UF Health launch online employee training site THE IFAS STUDY REFUTES OLD LEGISLATION.

The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences study found that even though these areas appear to be isolated, they are sigwaterways system. 2006 Supreme Court legislation, which suggested geographically isolated wetlands are not a conservation priority. These decisions trickled down into the Environmental Protection Agencys wetland conservation test where it determined which wetlands would be conserved under the Clean Water Act. The agency funded the $160,000 study. Wetlands make groundwater more constant and keep stream these isolated wetlands, larger bodies of water are at a greater risk of drying out and harming wildlife, said Matthew Cohen, a UF associate professor in ecohydrology and a study researcher. Its not big wetlands like Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park that are in danger of losing protection, Cohen said, but smaller ones. Alachua County has thousands of these small, isolated wetlands that directly affect Floridas water systems. They have been ditched and drained and otherwise degraded, he said. Bonnie Morris, 20, said she sees the effects on mistreated waterways in her classes. We learned that all the streams are connected, the UF forest research and conservation junior said. If water is polluted, its going to affect all of them in be protecting that. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is working to maintain the quality and quantity of water throughout the state, said Jim Lumar, an agency spokesman. on springs throughout the state, he said. The agency recently received a $69 million boost to enhance the water quality of Floridas springs. The Ichetucknee, Santa Fe and Suwannee rivers will be included in the project. However, Cohen believes the same protection should apply to the smaller waterways feeding into them. We shouldnt draw the line in such a way that we lose wetlands that are providing valuable services, he said. isolated wetlands worth conservingCAMPUS


voter turnout and the elections overall, Rojas said. Swamp Party stole the Spring 2014 elections, winning both the executive ticket and all 50 Senate seats based major. Were really appreciative of the students who voted and put in their input, said Swamp Party spokeswoman Katie Backstrand. Were looking forward to work on our platform goals. The Swamp Party also dominated all seven of District Bs seats, where independent candidate Evan Morris campaigned. The seven winners each had vote totals ranging from 673 to 636, while 134 votes 2.7 percent were tallied for Morris. Even though Morris lost, he said he was happy an independent candidate won at least one seat. I think it opened my eyes to how the politics on this campus work, the 20-yearold UF marketing junior encourage other students to challenge the system that they see around them. While no registered candidate campaigned for District E, which represents students living outside of Alachua County, 11 write-in ballots were cast for the Swamp Party, and therefore the party won the seat, Rojas said. The UF Elections Commission will determine the next steps for District E, Rojas said. Maynard said the tickets were valid. People are getting upset and saying its a speed trap, but the speed trap cant be blamed on speed limits, he said. That isnt in their authority. The Department of Transportation is responsible for the sudden change in speeds between Gainesville and Jacksonville, Maynard said, which can shift anywhere from 65 mph to 55 mph to 45 mph and back again along U.S. Highway 301. Its my job to enforce the law that is posted, Maynard said. The issue of a quota is a separate matter altogether. Small-town police departments generate funding Larger police departments like Gainesville Police are funded through taxes. The reality of it is withtown police departments will cease to exist. Maynard said. More than anything, it really is a funding issue. The write the tickets, they dont have a job. But ticket quotas are unethical, Maynard said. Quotas have long since been frowned upon, he said. That is clearly wrong and unethical, if not illegal. The ticket quota investigation is ongoing. 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014Maria Valencia/Alligator StaffAnabel Enrquez Pieiro gives the keynote address on The Image of Women and Female Identity in Cuban Science Fiction and Fantasy for the Fall 2014 Global SF Workshop in Ustler Hall on Wednesday night. C AMPUS Alligator Contributing Writer Vegans dont have to scavenge for food anymore now that UFs Gator Dining Services is expanding its vegan options. Peta2, the worlds largest youth animal rights group, is bringing a vegan-friendly menu to campus. Christina Bicknell, a peta2 campus representative, gave away free Tofurky sandwiches, granola bars and chips on the Plaza of the Americas on Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. to raise awareness about the new vegan options available on campus. Our campaign for more vegan food to be brought to the UF campus was driven by the strong demand for it, Bicknell said. Bicknell said 20 new vegan foods were added to the P.O.D. Markets last week, and theyre moving off the shelves quickly. Some of the items include Tofurky, cheese, hot cereal cups, macaroni and cheese, tempeh, vegetable chips and energy bars. We are just really excited these options were brought to campus and that Gator Dining was willing to make changes, Bicknell said. said its great these foods were addoptions at most on-campus dining locations. I think this will let vegan stucialized diet, said Astaphan, 20. Beverly Wharton, a UF mechanical engineering junior, said these small changes could lead to changes in peoples lives and perceptions of vegan food. Hopefully it will help others open their eyes that there are more choices and that they can be delicious, not scary like most people think vegan food is, Wharton, 20, said.Peta2 brings new vegan options to campus P.O.D.

If Grooveshark complied with the complaints, users were then free to legally reupload and replace the removed content. According to the ruling, Grooveshark employees personally uploaded songs again.

Grooveshark also destroyed evidence of Greenbergs personal uploads, records of 320,000 employee All in all, copies of copyrighted songs belonging to the nine record companies were streamed at least 36 million times. Users of the service and past and future employees will not be held liable for songs uploaded. Grooveshark declined to comment on the ruling. Both sides have 18 days to propose damages. In July, problems within the company were the subject of an anonymous post by a Grooveshark employee on Pastebin, an application that stores plain text. The post cited multiple layoffs and allegations of false reviews. Its bad. Really, really bad, the post read. Im working here until else where I wont have to sell my soul anymore.

From the Ray Rice debate to the tragic murder-suicide in Bell, Florida, domestic violence cases have made national headlines. Just this year, GPD responded to 407 non-criminal domestic disturbances, and a release said domestic violence charges with proof of a threat or injury.

Tobias said it is up to the offenders to stop domestic violence. Domestic abusers think its simply a loss of control that creates violent behavior, Tobias said in a press release. In fact, abusive domestic behavior is a deliberate choice to gain control over their partner.Locals advocate against domestic violence UF RESEARCH TENLEY ROSSAlligator Contributing WriterA UF study has found that Floridas warm temperatures and wet landscape raise soils ability to store carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The studys results were in the September issue of the Science of the Total Environment journal. Sabine Grunwald, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences soil and water science professor, led the study. She was motivated to understand how the carbon cycle works with climate and what effect it had on soils carbon storage. states climate and agricultural production are improving because the soil is storing the buildup of carbon-based gases in the atmosphere, she said. Many people look at soil and think we dont care, and actually everyone should care, Grunwald said. This is our livelihood. We could not exist without healthy and good soil, and usually that means carbon-good soil. Florida soil has the highest carbon storage, she said. The more water there is in the soil, the more likely it is to store carbon. This impacts food production and clean drinking water. Carbon dioxide is naturally found in the atmosphere, but too much can be produced, creating a shield that traps the energy within the atmosphere, causing the global warming effect. The soil acts as a container of the gas, which reduces the amount of gas that goes into the atmosphere, she said. If the soil is helping to slow down global warming, Im all for it, said Denise Robinson, a 21-yearold UF journalism senior. In the three-year study, researchers looked over data from 1,251 soil samples collected across Florida from 1965 to 1996, according to a UF/IFAS press release. Grunwald plans to make a carbon storage assessment across the U.S. She will look for ways that government agencies can make wise decisions about how to maintain landscapes. Grunwald said by publicizing her data she will be able to expand her soil-carbon research. We will gain some visibility by promoting these programs and making this data available, she said.Soil may slow down climate change LANA NASSERAlligator Contributing Writernite a former green campaign. ergy, has dwindled in student and faculty awareness, but the Chomp Down on Energy was a campus-wide effort to promote sustainability and energy conservation.

The campaign kicked off green teams, or self-directed groups designated on campus, that would implement and enforce conservation measures within their areas. UFs Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology and Research has kept its green team since the campaigns inception. The centers green team, which also incorporates other departments in the Cancer and Genetics Research Complex, has taken measures to reduce its environmental footprint by acting as the leader in sustainable practices in its area, said Megan Kimmel, the communications director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology and Research. We get lots of shipments. We get lots of boxes and Styrofoam and cooler packs from people sending us samples, Kimmel said. So in ICBR, we have made it a habit to recycle all of those things or to repurpose all of those things. The ICBR green team has also taken measures to extend its environmentally conscious mindset to other places around campus. For example, the team does annual swamp cleanups in which they head to Lake Alice and remove trash. Plans to revamp the Chomp Down on Energy campaign what they can improve upon.

Violation and harassment of women is wrong and disgusting, even when its done as a prank. In fact, its almost more horrifying to me that someone would think prank sexual harassment is even remotely OK. Disrespecting other peoples bodies is not an acceptable social experiment or an attempt at a harmless joke. The fact that some people in todays society tolerate such a horrible act makes me sick. Peppers actions promote the idea that such despicable behavior is a normal way to interact with others. Luckily, most of the YouTube community also thought Pepper was completely out of line, and they made sure to let him know. There have even been reports and allegations that Pepper himself has actually sexually abused women not just as a prank. Although I was saddened to hear about these allegations, I wasnt surprised. Someone sick enough to think joking about sexual assault is funny could also be sick enough to commit the act himself. This got me thinking. The popularity of jokes about rape and sexual assault in ordinary conversations is alarmingly high. Did you take the chemistry test yet? It totally raped me. anyone who clearly puts so little value on respecting the bodies and experiences of others. On the Internet, especially on opinion-based websites like YouTube, the number of crude and thoughtless comments that belittle and dismiss basic civility is ridiculous. Its something weve all experienced watching a video on YouTube and scrolling down aimlessly to the comments section where a barrage of hateful, misogynistic and violent language glares ominously at the viewer from the screen. Ive seen death threats, declarations that all women deserve to be sexually assaulted, and unwanted and excruciatingly graphic sexual innuendos all in lyric video. Most people dont treat each other so senselessly and and the feeling of brash freedom that the digital world allows, the creepy Internet troll has become a regular part of online culture. As college students in a generation hooked by technology, we come into contact with these people more often than most. misogyny and rape culture in America, there will always be a horde of self-centered ignorant commenters sitting in front of their computers deciding to post hateful remarks online. There will be horribly sick individuals who think it is a great idea to mock the experiences of sexual assault victims through a prank video. There will be a hacker who is so stupidly excited by the private photographs of others he or she will decide to plaster them all over the Internet. These people exist, and theyre frighteningly common. However, Im not going to let the salivating, misogynistic trolls of this generations media stop me from trying to live my life to the fullest. Im not going to be dissuaded by the hate that can spawn from a single video from a single instance of someone speaking out for womens rights. By standing together against Internet hate, we encourage the positive creativity the Internet makes possible. I more civil, tolerant and respectful Internet than what exists today.

Now Scott is back to his old voter suppression tricks. Last week, Scotts campaign mailed out pamphlets to thousands of ceived their absentee ballots. According to the Tampa Bay Times, election supervisors sentee ballots could have been mailed out was Sept. 30. In many cities, absentee ballots will not be mailed out until Tuesday, exactly four weeks before the November election. Although the distribution of these mailings is not necessarily a voter suppression tactic, the misleading information they confrustrated with the confusion about the absentee ballot process, may simply throw their hands up and forego voting altogether. cause he knows he has lost public support. If traditionally lowturnout groups like African Americans and Hispanics vote in droves, Scott doesnt have a chance of being re-elected. The governor is not alone in his use of these tactics.

Local actors and actresses will showcase a live, interactive performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show while the original movie plays simultaneously, a popular way to show this cult-classic movie. and the last two are Oct. 9 and Oct. 13. Doors open at 9 p.m. The show will be on a bigger scale and more nights this year because it was a huge success and sold out last year, said Patrick Lavery, the High Dives marketing and event coordinator. Tori Bunnell, a 22-year-old UF anthropology senior who has been a fan of the production for several years, said, Theres almost no chance Id turn down a Rocky Horror show. The performers will break what Shay Smith, a performer and the shows director, calls the fourth wall. This means they will interact with audience members instead of ignoring them like in a traditional show. This is Smiths second time performing with the local Rocky Horror There were so many different types of people and personalities in the audience last year, she said. Its a show suited for anyone 18 Lavery encourages buying tickets, which are $5, ahead of time. Donations are suggested to support the performers passions as well as the High Dive. Money will be collected at the door. Ive seen the actors put so much time and effort into the performance sometimes 80 hours per week, he said. Tickets can be purchased directly Ave., on or at the door. It was a sellout last year, Lavery said. People are going to want to see it again.

GABY NUNEZAvenue WriterTheyre hairy, theyre manly, theyre vulgar theyre burlesque. The Hurly Burly Male Burlesque troupe is on tour again, and tonight, its stage is The Backyard at Boca Fiesta. Dubbed the hairiest burlesque show youve ever seen, Hurly Burly combines comedy, props and a nod to classic burlesque together for a one of a kind experience, said Garrett Bunton, the production manager and Butt Reynolds dancer for the troupe. Its a giant party! These tattooed and mustached men have been entertaining since 2010 and decided to take their talents and tighty-whities on the road to bring more awareness to the genre, Bunton said. My friends saw them in Miami, and they thought their show was really fun, said Jacob Ihde, owner of Boca Fiesta. I wrote them six months ago, and they decided to go on tour, and I asked them to make a stop here. As Floridas only all-male burlesque revue, the heavily bearded group has piqued the interest of even the college-aged crowd. Men? Burlesque? This is something I have to see, said Laura Paklin, a 19-year-old UF computer engineering sophomore. I mean, it sounds like something for cougars, but it seems entertaining enough to go to. Mischievous Madams, Gainesaccompany the troupe for this performance. The same thing, but the opposite, Idhe said. It adds a little bit more to the show. Tickets are $5 for an inappropriate night of fun, and the show starts at 10 p.m.Feast your eyes: Male burlesque performers The show will be on a bigger scale and more nights this year because it was a huge success and sold out last year.Patrick LavertyHigh Dive marketing coordinator


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014 CHRISTINA HUNTAvenue WriterSoon women wont have to worry so much about forgetting to take that pesky little pill, and guys can be in charge of birth control too. Researchers will test a form of reversible male contraceptive called Vasalgel on primates this month, following a year of successful trials on rabbits and baboons. Vasalgel is a gel that is injected into the tube sperm swim through in order to block the sperm. This new product, which is expected to be on the market within the next three years, has raised questions tion methods on gender roles. Angel Kwolek-Folland, a UF professor of history and womens studies, pointed out that the introduction of anything that will block mens sperm is a relatively new way of handling birth control and introduces a dynamic to sexual activity that hasnt really been there before. culties always with birth control is that the two partners involved have a different stake in the outcome, Kwolek-Folland said. For a woman, she winds up pregnant, and her body goes through all of those changes, she said. Whereas for men, yes they, in theory, have responsibility for a child, but they dont bear it. However, she said she does believe it is important for men to have the ability to control their own fertility if they choose. She added that a less permanent and less invasive choice is a good addition to current methods. Although animal trials have had successful results, Adam Conrad, a 19-year-old UF nursing sophomore, is hesitant about Vasalgel. I dont know how I feel about getting a reversible vasectomy, Conrad said. It seems a little bit risky because if they cant reverse it or reversing it goes wrong, then Im virtually castrated. Conrad said he would want to wait a year or two for others to use Vasalgel and have it successfully reversed so he could see if there are unforeseen long-term effects of the product. Megan Newsome, an 18-year-old UF astronomy freshman, believes the simplicity of the procedure and its reversibility makes Vasalgel attractive. It is nice to see an increase in research regarding contraceptives for men so that both men and women can prevent conception without altering their sex lives or expecting anything from the woman alone, Newsome said.Reversible male contraceptive in trial sex KERI AND KELSI MATWICKAvenue WritersEver been bewildered by the multitude of forks, knives and spoons jostling for space at a formal dinner table? Which to use? When? And how did they get there, anyway? Bee Wilson, author of Consider the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat, discusses the history of cutlery and how the implements are fork cultures and chopstick cultures, Wilson claims that spoons are used by every human culture in the world. Spoons are universal in that every society uses them for one purpose or another: serving, measuring, conveying food from plate to mouth, stirring, scraping, etc. The form of the spoon reveals much about a society: Chinese porcelain blueand-white spoons for wonton soup and Russian what people like to eat. Mother-of-pearl egg spoons indicated the Edwardian fondness for a soft-boiled egg (mother of pearl was used because egg yolk stains silver). Having more kitchen gadgetry produces fork anxiety, according to food writer Darra Goldstein, a nervous condition brought on by the smorgasbord of silverware laid out on the table. Etiquette books describe how to use silver knives, forks and spoons, such as one 19th century etiquette book researched by Wilson: Soup must always be drunk from the edge of the soup spoon so youre not getting too close to the soup. (With the exception of men with moustaches. They were allowed to drink the soup from the end of the spoon.) The use of the knife and fork coincides with Knives and forks do not sit naturally in bowls four prongs, which are also called tines. There are two methods for handling a hand and fork. The American method is zigzag eating, where you hold a knife in your right hand and a fork in the left and use it to zigzag around the plate to scoop up all the morsels. The British practice is another approach, which some consider to be the knife. The motion is a stately dance. Like oars on a boat, the fork impales and the knife cuts. The knife pushes and the fork carries. Forks and knives hamper our eating with less dexterity in comparison to the one-handed chopsticks. The use of chopsticks takes a different approach to cuisine. Food is served already cut up and prepared by the cook. Literary theorist and philosopher Roland Barthes argued that chopsticks were the polar opposite of the knife. When holding a knife, we treat our food as food ready to pierce, to mutilate. With chopsticks, there is something maternal about them. Cultures shore the prejudice of eating without tools. Touching food is a sign of slovenliness, lack of manners and limits what can be eaten. The technology of tableware cannot be understood solely in terms of function. There is little you can and a bowl. The next time you pick up a spoon to eat cereal or use a fork and knife for salad, marreveals a societys values and etiquette.Universal Cutlery Culture: the spoons diverse history EDWIN EXAUS Avenue WriterThe blood, sweat and tears that go into building a reputation can all go to waste in an instant especially once racy images are involved, as celebrities have learned this past month. Thousands of fans took to Twitter after celebrities nude photographs were leaked due to an alleged Apple iCloud security breach. The iCloud system allows users to sync email, photos and other data among Apple products. At the beginning of September, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, among others, had their photos allegedly stolen from their iCloud accounts. Gabrielle Union, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna fell prey to the same attacks. Ive heard horror stories about iCloud, (with friends) information being transferred to someone elses computer, said Johanna McCracken, a 20-yearold UF applied physiology and kinesiology sophomore. Their pictures, their text messages just personal things that you necessarily wouldnt want anyone to see. In a statement released by Apple, the company said none of the cases investigated thus far have resulted from any breach from Apples systems, including iCloud or Find my iPhone. David Stanton, the technical lead of Mobiquity and a visiting professor, said the images were probably obtained through a hacker who worked his or her way into Apples iCloud system by guessing security questions and email addresses several attempts. Breaking into iCloud is very hard, he said, and if you did, getting the information on a speimpossible.Tips for keeping your nudes private (if you need/want that in your life) As always, be cautious when giving out information.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Watson advances to main drawDespite losing his third-round match in the ITA AllAmerican qualifying draw on Wednesday, Gordon Watson advanced to the tournaments main draw.Marcus Mariota and Oregon face Arizona tonight. Read about this weeks games to watch on Page 16.New alligatorSports PodcastOn the latest alligatorSports Podcast, Richard Johnson, Jonathan Czupryn and Morgan Moriarty talk about Florida-Tennessee, Richard and Jonathans wild Wednesday night and much more. RICHARD JOHNSONAlligator Staff Writer@RagjUFA maligned group, constantly groaned about by Florida fans in 2013, is now one of strength. Its amazing what happens when offensive linemen play in the positions theyre best suited for with no injuries to shake up the group. Max Garcia is a rock at center. Roderick Johnson is a wonder kid at right tackle, and David Sharpe, the other wet-behind-the-ears freshman, isnt far behind him on the outside either. Trip Thurman along with Tyler Moore have been consistent in his play at guard and Trenton Brown has moved opposite them and brought his phone booth size frame to play well at a spot often termed as playing inside of one. Chaz Green, free from the snare of nagging injury, has shown he can be solid at either tackle spot this season. What has been missing is the former No. 1 offensive tackle recruit in the nation in D.J. Humphries, but he plans to be back Saturday against Tennessee after sitting out with a chipped bone in his ankle. Yeah, it was one of those things like, Here it is again, Humphries said. You know what I mean? I never really had any injuries where I did anything that hurt me. I always have people kind of falling on me. It was one of them things like, Again? Im more ready now, though. Back on the Kan Li / Alligator StaffChaz Green (75) prepares to guard Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen (93) during the Gators 42-21 loss to the Crimson Tide on Sept. 20 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Green started at left tackle in UFs past two contests for the injured D.J. Humphries, who is expected to play in Floridas game against Tennessee on Saturday. Humphries set to return to Gators offensive line against VolunteersSEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15 JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Florida defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin did not enjoy watching his defense struggle against Alabama. In the 42-21 loss against the Crimson Tide, the Gators surrendered a program-high 672 yards, 43 yards more than the previous high of 629 suffered against Nebraska in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl. Not very fun, Durkin said. You put a lot of time and work into the game plan and our players do as well and thats all of us together. Now heading into Saturdays matchup against Tennessee, Durkins defense will be without defensive tackle Leon Orr (knee) and possibly without linebacker Mike Taylor (knee). In Orrs absence, Jonathan Bullard will play on the interior of the defensive line. Joey Ivie, Gerald Willis and Taven Bryan will also receive more ingame reps. If Taylor is unable to compete against the Volunteers, the rotation at Mike linebacker will be limited to Neiron Ball, Antonio Morrison and Jarrad Davis. Ball, who is tied for the team lead in sacks (two) and is fourth in tackles (15) is one who Durkin has praised. I thought hes played really well and consistent for us all year long, Durkin said. At Alabama he played well, he did some things we would have liked to have done differently or better. Like a lot of guys he played a lot of snaps in that game so some of those mistakes he made or breakdowns in the game were a matter of him being out there that long. But he has to be able to do that and again hell play a lot of snaps this coming Saturday. Overall Bullard, Ivie take over for OrrOTEROS OPINIONIf youre tired of reading hard-hitting news about Jeff Driskels fate as starting quarterback and coach Will youve come to the right article at the right time. On todays agenda: volleyball nicknames. Yes, you heard that right ladies and gentlemen. I will be taking you through the inner workings of volleyball serving nicknames. Now, if youve never been to a volleyball of all, anyone who serves has a nickname. First up, senior libero Holly Pole. The fans call her Sweetness when she serves. Why you ask? I actually have no idea. And neither does she. I had no idea what it was until like, actually a couple weeks ago, Pole said. I remember asking somebody because I hear everybody elses, but I dont hear mine when Im serving. And I have no idea what it means or why its sweetness. Its funny, but I dont get it. Maybe its because her name is Holly, and Holly is often associated with Christmas and Christmas has candy, and candy is sweet? Nope, you know what, I dont know. Next is Taylor Unroe, the 2013 Southeastern Conference Libero of the Year. Anytime Unroe serves, I always look to the students that yell out the nicknames (you know who you are, people who sit by the band) because they have a makeshift rowboat picture they wave in the air as they yell, row your boat. Its cute and funny and the crowd knows that one the best. has the most comedic of the nicknames.Sweetness: Breaking down Florida volleyballs serving nicknamesSEE NOTEBOOK, PAGE 15 SEE COLUMN, PAGE 15 Eden Oterotwitter: @edenotero_l Humphries UF FOOTBALL


The senior is having a great year with only three service errors on 85 serves, so naturally I would talk about her nickname. But, if Im being honest its not really a nickname, just more like a parenthetical phrase after her name. The announcer says, Maddy Monserez to serve and you hear 10 guys yell out, huh, huh. Oui, oui, in the frenchiest-French accent they can create. Its clever, and Monserez likes it, so theres that. Leading the team in service aces (22) is junior Mackenzie Dagostino, or as the crowd likes to call her Mack n Cheese. Which is amazing. her nickname came from, I mean, shes awesome, mac and cheese is awesome, so clearly they would be synonymous. Oh and her name is Mackenzie. The newest, and my personal favorite, nickname is freshman outside hitter Carli Snyder. Her nickname is Goldilocks because she has wild blonde hair that I am seriously envious of. Shes only served in four matches so far, but it was enough to bring out a new nickname. Continuing on with the newbies is freshman middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan, who has quickly become a fan favorite. But despite that fan-favoritism she receives one of the lamest of all the nicknames. Im actually very disappointed in the people that give these out because they lost an opportunity to make a play on her height. Instead, she has been nicknamed Awesome. I assume its because she is quite awesome on the court (I mean shes chest high to the net when she jumps), but also because her last name Alhassan sounds a little teeny, tiny bit like awesome. Finally, there is Nikki ORourke, who is called Nikki-Tikki-Tavi a play-on of the childrens book, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Its pretty funny, and actually rather clever. And its Monserezs favorite name. I think its pretty cool, Monserez said. It sounds cool when they say it. Its a lot of syllables.

The yardage number is good for third naally. said. Just having his energy really lifts us all up. You could really tell when he was out, during practice we just didnt have that much ally excited to have him back and its going to take him a little bit to get him back to where he was, playing to the speed of the game after being out. But Im sure hes going to do a good job on Saturday. The Gators head to Knoxville, Tenn., on giate road game. He was wide-eyed then, entranced by an insane atmosphere. Two years later, its his job to impart the wisdom on Johnson that Green and former Gators Xavier Nixon and Jon Halapio gave to him. It was simply that he needed to calm down UF he had trouble consistently keeping his cool throughout a full game because he was so energetic. One good thing would happen and hed dwell on it instead of moving on to the next play. (Johnson) reminds me a lot of me when I was a kid, when I was a younger, Humphries said. Hes so energetic and just excited to play ball and just turnt up as soon as he makes a play hes just ready to sell out everybody. I just try to tell him you gotta calm down, bro, just be ready to make the next play, good or bad and be ready to do the same thing over again.UFs offensive line is allowing just .67 sacks per game Tennessee tailback Hurd excellingNeiron has played really consistent for us and Im happy for him. Ya Hurd: Jalen Hurd is making a name for himself. freshman tailback leads UT with 328 rushing yards and two rushing scores while averaging 4.6 yards per rush. Against Georgia on Saturday, Hurd tallied 138 total yards and a touchdown on 27 touches. dence each game, Durkin said. I think their coachgame. ... Hes a guy thats got good playing experience now. Hes playing within their scheme and doing well. But Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis has other plans in mind for Hurd. Hes physical. Hes fast, but he doesnt have top end speed. We have to come downhill, we have to hit him early. We have to let him know what it is and we have to welcome him to the SEC, Davis said. Georgia was a big test for him, thats a physical team. But I feel like we have more to offer for him. I dont think he can hang with us. Hes a good athlete, but weve got a whole defense coming for him.
