Villalon also stressed the importance of awareness and education about the disease. I think its the most important thing we can do, he said. No one in Gainesville is likely to get it. Alysha Cooper, a 19-year-old UF biology junior, attended the event as a part of UFs Ebola research group. Its important to have information on the CDC, Atlanta and Texas, but its easy for us to see Africa as a blob far from us, she said. Education is key. Abramowitz, who organized the event, is leading the Ebola research group at UF. Abramowitz said students should take action and help Ebola affected countries. I would encourage people and student organizations to start doing more fundraising, she said. the evening. He said he worked on the Ebola outbreak in Central Africa in 2002. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that there will be between 1.2 and 1.4 million cases of Ebola in West Africa by January 2015, Psychas said in his presentation. You can watch a whole string of headlines and never get the bigger picture, Psychas said. UF stakeholders met to discuss strategies for handling the virus on campus Tuesday, Psychas said. Medical staff are running drills at the UF Health Shands Hospital to practice isolating and treating an Ebola patient. Joscelyn Essegbey, a Gainesville resident, attended the discussion to hear about the differences in treatment for the disease. The disease has no borders, Essegbey said. We become aware of what we can bring in and take out. Maria Valencia / Alligator StaffPaul Psychas, a UF community health and family medicine associate professor, speaks at the West African Ebola Epidemic discussion in Pugh Hall on Wednesday evening. First patient diagnosed in US died in Dallas on Wednesday PANEL, from page 1 ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writerafernandez@alligator.orgA week after UF sent out a mass email to the Student Body, no new information is available on the student hospitalized with meningococcal disease. Nadia Kovacevich, an epidemiologist at the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County, said the department has located everyone who was in contact with the student. Everyone that was considered high risk was located and informed of the disease, she said. The university was given the information to make sure that we didnt need to contact any other high risk individuals. Jamie Kerzner, a 19-year-old UF biology sophomore, attended Coral Gables Senior High School in Miami with the Georgetown University student who died in September from meningitis. From what Ive heard from other friends, when she got to the hospital it was too late, she said. Im not sure if she thought she just had a cold, but its very unfortunate and very sad. Kerzner said the idea of getting the disease is worrisome. I just need to be aware of my health, she said. That goes for everyone. I think everyone has a complex where they think they can tough it out. Meningococcal disease, a type of meningitis caused by a bacteria carried by people in their nasal passages or throat, can spread from person to person until the germ is no longer present, according to the Florida Department of Health. Prevention for contracting the disease includes vaccinations, avoidance of sharing eating utensils and covering the nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. Talking to a health care provider and making sure the appropriate testing is done is another way to prevent the disease, Kovacevich said. No other cases of the disease have been reported. Symptoms include fever, headache, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light and altered mental status, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.No new meningitis cases after UF student hospitalization Everyone that was considered high risk was located and informed of the disease.Nadia Kovacevichepidemiologist

ARIANA FIGUEROA Alligator Staff Writer UF campus research centers have banded to gether to form a diabetes institute. Five grants, totaling $13.6 million, helped fund the program. The grants were from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, which is part of the Na tional Institutes of Health. We were very excited about these awards because UF may be the most represented in an effort to understand the role of insulin produc ing cells in Type 1 diabetes, institute director Mark Atkinson said. The institute will be staffed with about 100 faculty members from the colleges of medicine, engineering, public health and health profes sions, nursing and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). The institute will focus on advancing treat ment for patients with both Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Atkinson said UF diabetes research is one of the top in the country in terms of Type 1 dia betes. According to Atkinson, the institute has a threefold mission that will dedicate diabetes research to improving clinical care and advanc ing the teaching and training of the next gen eration of researchers and caregivers. We cannot afford to let the diabetes epi demic continue, Atkinson said. We need to do a better job of educating people what diabe tes is and how to avoid it. One in every 10 Floridians has diabetes, said Dr. Kenneth Cusi, the institutes adult medical director. IFAS will be involved in outreach programs to educate the community about ways to pre vent Type 2 diabetes. We hope that we will have an impact in in spiring the new generations to join this crusade in curing diabetes, Cusi said. Im very excit ed. This is probably the most important initia tive for patients because Florida has one of the highest rates in diabetes. David S. Guzick, senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of UF Health, said he hopes to work with IFAS to prevent pa tients from developing Type 2 diabetes. We have to realize that diabetes is a sig commitment to improving health throughout the state. Leeana Peters, 19, conducts research on Type 1 diabetes in the Todd M. Brusko Laboratory and has seen diabetes in her family. Her 6-yearold sister was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 3. I am absolutely ecstatic that UF is establish ing an institute to conduct more research on diabetes, the UF biology sophomore said. UF uses grants to start diabetes institute focused on treatment IT CAN BE FATAL. CHABELI HERRERA Alligator Staff Writer The viral respiratory infection that shocked the Midwest in August made its way to Florida this week. The Florida Department of was detected in a 10-year-old girl in Polk County. According to a press release, the girl is recovering. No other informa tion was revealed on her condition. The virus is highly contagious and spread through droplets in coughs or sneezes, or through con tact with contaminated surfaces, such as countertops or doorknobs. It has proven especially dangerous for infants and young children. Florida joins 43 states and Wash ington, D.C. that have reported more than 500 total cases of Enterovirus in New Jersey died of the infection on Sept. 25 and an additional four people infected with the virus have died, but its unclear if the deaths were caused by the virus. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost all the cases have involved children. The Florida Department of Health said the virus is often mistaken for with asthma are at a higher risk of infection. Symptoms may include wheezing, trouble breathing, high fever with ill appearance, thick nasal discharge and signs of dehydration. The department recommends washing hands frequently and dis infecting surfaces with nonalcoholic products. Alcohol-based products, such as hand sanitizers, are not ef fective in combating the disease. Nadia Kovacevich, an epidemiol ogist with the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County, said the agency is urging residents to remain at home if they are not feeling well.

Fans of Lynch and his cult-hit TV series Twin Peaks knew this had to be an important message, hinting at the possibility of the series return. time announced it is picking up nine episodes of Twin Peaks, which will air sometime in 2016. If you havent watched Twin Peaks yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. Television as we know it today simply wouldnt exist without this show. Twin Peaks premiered in 1990 and was canceled after two seasons due to low ratings, but it forever changed the way stories are told on TV. It received tons of critical acclaim and instant status as a cult icon, and its fanbase has only grown over the years. What is Twin Peaks? Theres no way I could do it justice in a single paragraph, but Ill try anyway. Its the story of what happens after the most popular girl in a small town in the state of Washington is murdered. It tells the stories of the FBI agent who comes to investigate, the townspeoples not-so-quaint secrets and the dark, supernatural forces in the woods. The show is about the violent of coffee. Twin Peaks is, at times, quirky and hilarious, not actually that excited about Twin Peaks coming back. Im sorry, but Im not buying it literally. opportunity to backstroke through a pool of money so big its game if theyre going to compete with HBOs programming in the long run. network can expect thousands of diehard fans to hop on for the new season, as well as legions of insecure, over-eager twenty-somethings desperate to seem like they know what theyre talking about at parties. I have enormous respect for Lynch, and Im not calling into question his integrity as an artist. However, a powerful lust for organic coffee and cigarettes doesnt pay for itself, and surely no one can blame an artist for agreeing to get paid obscene amounts of money to produce more of his work. Im simply skeptical. I have sincere doubts these next nine episodes will be as good as the originals. I point to disaster as well as the fact that every member of the the bucket. Yesterday, I watched the Psych tribute to Twin Peaks you know, for research purposes which used ago, they convincingly played hot high school students. In the tribute, they convincingly played wrinkly, grayhaired, middle-aged people. It was profoundly upsetting. Im looking at you, season four of Arrested Development even if theyre objectively OK. Even if these new episodes are of passable quality, theyre inherently unnecessary. Part of what makes cult TV shows so sacred in our society is that they died before they had a chance to be terrible. We get to remember the greatness of the shows Obviously, Ill be watching these new episodes of Twin Peaks along with all the other diehard fans. However, I still believe theres no need to resurrect the mythology. The show really should be left in peace. Alec Carver is a UF journalism sophomore.

Mud-splattered trucks by the on Whitehurst Cattle Company in Archer. Boys in camo and overalls, minus shirts, and girls in all manner of sundresses, cowboy boots and body glitter drank from Miller Lite trucks bearing Bryans face and Cabelas slogan, #ItsInMyNature. Red-topped Smirnoff tents stood next to stands selling leather belts and cowboy boots. With a No.1 single and multimillion-dollar national tour, Bryan is a veritable country cash cow. Sponsored by 5-hour Energy, Cabelas and Miller Lite, his sixth annual Farm Tour, with special guest up-and-comer country artist Cole Swindell, comes off the tails of his Thats My Kind of Night Tour, which has thus far grossed more than $55.5 million. A portion of the concert proceeds will go toward the Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship, which awards scholarship money to college students from farming families around the communities on the tours stops. Bryans goofy charm and sorority girl sex appeal are enough to allow him to skate by on tired, repetitive lyrics about country babes, drinking and trucks laid over simplistic, three-chord rock progressions. Theres a reason why critics, including Tom Petty, have pointed out that todays bestselling country music is more Bon Jovi than Hank Williams. After Swindells raucous opening set, the lights dimmed and a crossbow played over the monitors on stage a familiar scene from one of his Cabelas ads. Then began his act with plenty of hip gyrating, contrived shout-outs to the Gators win and live performances of the hits that have propelled him forward as todays top-earning male country artist. And though Bryans success is purely commercial Rolling Stone gave his 2013 album Crash My Party just two and a half stars the Farm Tour illustrates the crux of his appeal. Whether its one three-minute, three-chord song or one night spent on a farm 30 minutes away from campus, the Bryan listener can escape into a rural fancountry girls shaking it on the hood of daddys tractor. I would venture to guess its a fantasy that doesnt exist for the average Bryan fan. On Saturday, as he launched into Rain Is a Good Thing prompting the girl behind me to upend her Miller Lite on the back of my legs in excitement tors played on the screens behind him, a girl next to me cracked open a canned Smirnoff screwdriver. In front of me, people held their smart phones high above their heads to capture video of Bryan bounding across the stage. The next day the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of UF students whod taken a break to get muddy on a farm returned to their apartments, fraternity houses and the Starbucks in their libraries. Sure, Bryan has tapped into a lucrative brand of rural escapism, and sure, maybe some of it rings a bit phony Bryan has, at this point, pushed the limit on the amount of in his songs. But as the sun sank over Whitehurst Cattle Company, the temperature dropped and feelgood country song after feel-good country song played. Bryans popcountry crossover appeal became clear. Hes a cute, affable guy with a guitar and just the right amount of songwriting chops besides genre and time, what separates Bryan from Frankie Valli, Elvis Presley or John Mayer? Its a familiar formula, and its one that works. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/AVENUECourtesy to the AlligatorCountry singer Luke Bryan performs on his Farm Tour in Knoxville.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2014 EMILY CARDINALIAvenue WriterA typical London street bustles with Muggles with their heads buried in their cellphones and newspapers. A purple double-decker is parked next to a glinting fountain and a cheery Jamaican voice chuckles from somewhere inside. Most people miss the sign that marks the Leaky Cauldron. And most Muggles miss the entrance to Diagon Alley at Universal Studios. Diagon Alley, which opened this summer, is the newest addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, connected from Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure by the Hogwarts Express. For those of you who are into the wizardry and witchiness of Halloween but not the terror and scares of Halloween Horror Nights, Diagon Alley is a perfect alternative. The two stand-outs of the newest area of the wizarding world are undoubtedly the ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express. dragon, Gringotts stands in its blinding white marble, sturdy and encapsulating dragons, trolls and, in this ride, Lord Voldemort himself. To get to the ride, you weave through hard-working high-ceilinged queue area. On the ride itself, you go to set up a Gringotts account and meet Bill Weasley on the way. He takes you down 9 miles to the vaults, and you plunge down into the bowels of the earth, speeding past stalactites (or is it stalagmites?), dragons and waterfalls (dont worry, he stops you from getting soaked) to follow Harry, Ron and Hermione (played by Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) through their journey of breaking into the Lestranges vault. The 3D thrill ride has been the most popular ride in the park since Diagon Alley opened, but the wait is honestly worth it. After all the excitement of almost being burned by that dragon, youll need a calm meander through the shops in Diagon Alley. Theres the staple Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands, where if youre lucky, the shop owner will pick you for the wand-picking experience. Theres Weasleys Wizard Wheezes and the Magical Menagerie, and you can creep through the dark Knockturn Alley (dont forget to stop in Borgin and Burkes and, are those shrunken heads singing?). Florean Fortescues Ice Cream Parlour can treat you to some happiness in a bowl with made for the park. Head back out to Kings Cross to catch the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9. Youll need a two-park pass to get on the train, but you can upgrade in the station. After running through the column between platforms 9 and 10 (dont worry, only the people behind you will see it), the wisened red Hogwarts Express emerges from billows of steam and your attendant leads you to your car. Dont get caught up in your Muggle newspaper (the Alligator), though, because the rolling hills of England hold surprises as you travel to Hogsmeade. Youll run into beloved characters and see familliar scenes from the movies,. The Trolley Lady walks by, asking Anything from the trolley, dears? and just like Harry, you wont want to return to the muggle world. KRISTAN WIGGINSAvenue WriterOctober in Florida is practically synonymous with fraidy cats alike, this years HHN is sure to inspire stressinduced sweating, a few chuckles and plenty of ear-piercing screams. You have no chance once you enter the park to prevoodoo practitioners wearing bloodstained masks, just like youre in the middle of the horror version of Princess and the Frog. Nurses sell baggies full of blood along the paths as you cowardly make your way to and from the house. Youll also encounter The Purge, with murderous, mask-wearing people who blend into the crowd way show; and MASKerade Unstitched for the glamorous The biggest house this year is based off The Walking Dead and by big, I dont just mean the most popular (though it easily is the fan favorite). Horror Nights veterans will remember last year overpopulated with walkers, but they tweaked it around this time. The Walking Dead: End of the Line house is the largest Halloween Horror Nights has ever had, double the size with three times as many scareactors. Minor spoiler alert ahead if youre behind a season. The house is set up to walk you through the latest Walking Dead season, starting when Rick and the gang are splitting up following the Governors attack. Notice the walkers look a little different, with the eye-bleeds evidence of the deadly sickness plaguing survivors. Keep your arms and legs close: Theres a horde coming your way with about 15 walkers confronting you. Dont worry though, youll make it to Terminus soon enough.. or maybe worry about that. mare. Most of the rides in Universal Studios are still running at night. Or catch one of the shows: Bill & Teds Excellent Halloween Adventure, where youll laugh at pop culture events like #bendgate, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with performers singing along to clips from the cult classic. After that, jump back into the fray with a personal childhood fear of most 20-somethings that is brought to life in the Halloween house. Michael Myers lurks around every corner of the iconic house with his emotionless mask, ready to attack any and everyone with his butcher knife (or strangle you with a phone cable). Be warned, dummies. There are houses for most types of fear: AVP for alienphobes; Dollhouse for the Damned for those who know dolls are the scariest childhood toy; Giggles and Gore Inc. for those who want to know where evil clowns come from (theyre made, not born); Roanoke Cannibal Colony for the history buffs; and Dracula Untold and From Dusk till Dawn for fangbangers. So, theres that. Be prepared to scream (or laugh at the wimps) your way through the night. From witches, wizards and goblins ...to terrorizing zombies and Michael Halloween at Universal:

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2014 JASMINE WILDFLOWER OSMONDAvenue WriterA horse with six legs and a collaboration between downtown neighbors: The Hippodrome State Theatre is changing pace. Getting rid of the old H, and trashing the tradition, said Mark Sexton, the former general manager of the Hippodrome. This is insane. This is the best thing ever! On Tuesday night, the 41-yearold Hippodrome and local marketing team 160over90 revealed their strategy for a complete rebranding of the historic theater, Before the reveal, Jessica Hurov, managing director, said the Hippodrome was excited and extremely grateful for the chance to work with its neighbors. 160over90 collaborated and designed the rebranding completely free of charge. The old design was drawn on a napkin by an old set designer. The swoopy H didnt say anything about us. It was just a fancy H, she said. over90 aims to use our marketing to tell a story. At the reveal, Greg Ash, the is also handling UFs rebranding, presented a minimalist logo: Hippodrome in a rectangular box with the six-legged silhouette of a horse behind it. The horse contains symbolic references to the theaters past, present and future, Ash said. The horse is there because the original meaning of the word hippodrome involves horse racing, and the six legs represent the six founders, the six columns on the building and the six goals of the theater. He said the point of the logo is to get people to ask questions. If the Hippodrome can use this logo to start a discussion in the community, then 160over90 has done its job. I can see this logo on a poster that says threesome on it, Ash said in relation to a sample production poster for the play Two Musketeers. Before the reveal, Ash said the idea for the rebranding came from conversations between himself, Hurov and other Hippodrome employees last October. He said he believes the Hippodrome is the face of culture in Gainesville. The old building at the end of the street can be intimidating and isnt always appreciated as it should be. He said he wanted the rebrand to display a shift in perspective, make the community look inward, keep the dialogue going and help people be a little less afraid of the old building down the street.Downtown Hippodrome State Theatre rebrands after 20 yearsCourtesy to the AlligatorThe Hippodrome State Theatres new logo, designed by the marketing team at 160over90, depicts a six-legged horse as a part of its rebranding. ISABELLA ALSINA AND GABRIELLA NUNEZAvenue WritersMerengue musician Too Rosario will be kulikitakaing his way to UF for Hispanic Heritage Month. Mximo Antonio del Rosario, commonly known as Too Rosario, will be performing at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m. Friday for UFs Hispanic Heritage Months annual concert. Co-sponsored by Student Government Productions, the month long celebration hopes to get all UF students dancing out of their seats. We wanted to bring someone that made the Latino students feel nostalgic and happy, said Giselle Bermudez, the executive director of Hispanic Heritage Month. His music was very present in our childhood, and when I think of him, I think of the amazing house parties my family used to throw back in the day. The 58-year-old Grammy-award nominee is known for his fast-paced, feel-good dance music popular in the Hispanic community but is most famously known for his No. 1 hit single Kulikitaka. I keep telling all my Latino friends, if you werent raised on this song, your family didnt do it right, Bermudez, the 21-year-old UF sociology senior, said. The popular Dominican artist blends both the old and the new wave of merengue, creating a genre for listeners of all generations to enjoy. Now his performance is free at UF. Hes a great choice, and I grew up around music like his, said Yudelkis Fuste, a 20-year-old UF psychology junior. Im excited to go Friday so I can not only support my friends, but the Hispanic community. His concert open to the public at the Phillips Center. Doors open at 7 p.m.Hispanic Heritage Month brings merengue artist MATT PEARSONAvenue Writer After 14 years apart, Mineral has reunited. I was able to talk to Chris Simpson, the lead band and the future. Mineral will be playing at FEST on Nov. 2 at :08. Its set is at 10:30 Florida in 16 years. What inspired you guys to get back together? What events took place to get a tour going? I think, in general sense, I started thinking about it just the fact that it was 20 years since we started the band, so that number sort of factored into that. I was thinking that if there was a time do something, now would be a good one, you know? And then Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World I was hanging out with him last fall, and we were sort of both talking about how its been 20 years since we started our bands. He ended up asking if we might consider doing a show with them and some other bands, a sort of 20th anniversary show, and I hadnt talked to the other guys about it. So I talked to everyone else and see if theyd at least be interested in getting together in the rehearsal room and seeing what happens, you know? So its really like we just kind of agreed to get together and see how it felt or see if we could feel it out and see if it was something wed be interested in doing. But at the time we were thinking about doing one show, then it just kinda grew from there. We ate breakfast and started getting back into the material and started getting reconnected with one another again. It was kind of time in all of our lives where a lot of us were in transitional phases between different things we were doing workwise and schoolwise and familywise and what not, so it just sort of worked out like all systems go. So we have a good friend whos been hassling us for a while about doing something with Mineral. Theyre sort of involved in the music world, and they offered to manage the affair and put things together for us. So we green lighted it, and it kinda blew up. Twenty years ago is this something you ever thought your band would do? probably thought wed still be around. Which I guess we are, but in a different way than I wouldve imagined at that time. I was very much career minded at the time. I didnt really see any reason why Mineral wouldnt be around now. Do you think this reunion will inspire new music from Mineral? Thats been a popular question for sure. I think our take on it has been that were certhe work. I think thats something that would take a little more time to develop. As of right now, we kind of we have our hands full just getting ready for the tour, preparing and relearning the material and all learning the gear, the technical aspect together. I think we have the next leg of the tour to be addressed, and then we have quite a while off before we got off to Europe and Japan in January. So I guess closed minded to the idea. Nobody is thinkI said, theres just no plan other than the tour dates we have planned right now. You can read the rest of the Q and A on our website. Mineral reunites after 14 years, prepares to take on FEST EDWIN EXAUSAvenue WriterThousands of pink ribbons hanging in store windows, pinned onto pedestrians chest pockets and printed one thing: Pinktober is in full swing. October, or Pinktober, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and lives affected. I think its important for all young people, men and women, to be aware of breast cancer, the warning signs and what to look out for, said Yenisse Soto, missions and marketing manager of the Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. LauSoto said its important involved, whether through small donations or actively participating in an event. Some UF organizations and Gainesville businesses are also hosting events to raise awareness within the community. There are several ways students can get involved directly and indirectly with the campaign this year. Students can indirectly participate in breast cancer awareness at any Tijuana Flats restaurant. The company, known for its fresh ingredients and crazy taco deals, allows customers to order pink tacos for an additional $1 to support the cause. Customers can also purchase a $5 bottle of The Sauce That Saves, and the money will be donated to breast cancer research. This is the second year weve been doing the pink tacos, (and) I believe this is the 10th year weve been doing fundraising for breast cancer, said Juan Segura, manager of the Tijuana Flats on University Avenue. Last year it was a pretty big success. We donated over $250,000 as a company in one month, he said. This year were looking to increase that number. Besides the vivid pink tacos and spicy hot sauce, customers can come in and sign the survivor wall, which is dedicated to individuals who have survived any form of cancer over the years. All the stores are doing it its pretty cool. Its liberating putting someones name up there, Segura said. Segura said customers who do not donate can still put a name on the wall. All Tijuana Flats locations will have this promotion going until Oct. 26. Pinktober awareness takes over culture

IAN COHENAlligator Writer@icohenbBy now, Floridas volleyball team is tired of hearing about Chloe Mann. Or rather, about her absence. Mann was a two-time All-American and led UF in hitting percentage for three straight years, beginning in her sophomore season. She was No. 1 on the team in both kills and points as a senior, and was a large part of Floridas 28-4 record last season ern Conference. She was Floridas unquestioned leader at the net. And now shes gone, but she left something behind. Towards the end, (Chloe) kind of knew it was gonna be me (replacing her), junior Simone Antwi said. So it wasnt that drastic of a transition because Chloe kind of eased me into it towards the end of the season. Antwi has inherited Manns role as the teams oldest blocker. And just as Mann helped her, Antwi is now facilitating freshman blocker Rhamat Alhassans transition into Floridas system. So far, the junior has set a good example. Antwi is fourth in the SEC in hitting percentage (.398), and of the conferences top 20 hitters, she has the fourth fewest errors (26). The 6-foot-2 blocker not only takes pride in her own ability, but also in the help she is able to provide Alhassan. Its weird now because Im the oldest middle, so I have to kind of be the mama bear, Antwi said. When Rhamats in (the game) and she does something, its not like I can go out of the game and just check out. I have to pay attention and see what shes doing. ... Ive kind of embraced the role of helping her. Antwis mentorship has allowed AlhasThe freshman has surpassed Antwi in hitting percentage (.476) while collecting just one more error (27). For Antwi and Alhassan, the distinction between junior and freshman is clear. The line between student and teacher is less so. Shes helped me more than she knows, to be honest, Antwi said. After not starting to begin the year, Alhassan has now secured a permanent spot in the opening lineup. Who would of thought that a player match of her freshmen year can produce the kind of numbers that Rhamat is producing right now? coach Mary Wise said. Some of Alhassans success is a direct result of Antwis assistance, but even more of it is due to the precedent that Mann set during her Florida tenure. Manns gone now, but she left something behind. Chloe, having her around was a really big thing, but she also kind of helped us along the way, Antwi said. While she was here (I) learned so much from her. Now were kind of carrying it on for her. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffSimone Antwi swings for a kill attempt during Floridas 3-0 win against Ole Miss on Sept. 28 in the OConnell Center. Antwi is UFs most experienced middle blocker. VOLLEYBALLAntwi embracing leadership role among middle blockershandled the sexual assault accusations vary. Im proud of the way Florida handled it, said 20-year-old Connor Ingalls. I think it was good for them to take care of it before it got out of control or overshadowed the team. The telecommunication junior said he thinks the universitys decision to suspend Harris is strongon and around UF campus. It all created the perfect storm really for Treon Harris to just have to be suspended immediately, he said. However, 23-year-old recent Florida State University graduate David Arbogast said he doesnt agree with Harris suspension. I dont think we should punish someone until theyre proven guilty, but I understand why UF did it, he said. Coach Will Muschamp met with media on Wednesday for the situation broke on Monday. The Florida head coach did not add any further comment on the situation. The statement that the university released Monday, I think, was pretty self-explanatory, Muschamp said. Its a very serious charge, and theres been no change in his status. So thats kind of where we are. Kristina Florio, Jordan McPherson and Melissa Mihm contributed to this report. TREON, from page 1
