PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Staff WriterAfter months of presidential search updates, the wait is over: UF will learn the name of The Gator Nations next leader. The Board of Trustees will select the new president today from the two remaining candidates. Kent Fuchs and David interview round with the Presidential Search Committee on Tuesday morning, where they were asked 13 questions on topics such as goals, strategies and leadership. Each candidate also attended a faculty and campus/community assembly Tuesday evening in Emerson Alumni Hall. They answered predetermined questions based on responses from the greater UF community during the 2012 presidential search. Questions touched upon student engagement, being a top research institution, community and economic development, sustainability, diversity, athletics and being a part of The Gator Nation. McLaughlin, New York University Provost for the last 13 years, spoke to about 40 members of the campus and community at 5 p.m. He said he is interested in the presidential position because he believes in the American research university system. In studying the University of Florida, I became aware that the University of Florida itself has done an exceptional job over the last decade decade and a half in positioning itself to the very top of the American public research universities, he said. On potentially becoming a Gator, McLaughlin said, I will be, at best, an honorary Gator.

The event is part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month a nationwide campaign to address disability employment issues and recognize the contributions of Americas disabled workers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Todays event is open to all members of the community and will focus on hidden disabilities, Lindsey said. There will be hands-on activities to highlight the tools students with disabilities use to succeed, she said. Earlier this year, UF broke ground on its 25th residence hall. Cypress Hall is being built with disabled students in mind and will feature 255 bed spaces, 35 of which will include lift systems to transport those with higher levels of disability. Andy Alvarez, a Santa Fe zoology senior, said his sister had a brain tumor during his childhood, causing her to lose half of her body movement and requiring someone to monitor and assist her with day-to-day tasks such as walking. People need to be more aware of whats happening around them because most people dont see the disabilities that some people have because some disabilities ... cant (be) seen with the naked eye, Alvarez said. People need to be educated. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014Ana Rojo / AlligatorHuman Bowling ARIANA FIGUEROAAlligator Staff WriterEmily Johns cant wait to see how UF is gocase on Flavet Field on Friday.

Performers for this years Growl show include Ludacris, Foster the People and former SNL cast member Brooks Wheelan. Im pretty much just going for Ludacris, the UF animal science sophomore said. Its a cheap concert. Student Government Productions is paying Ludacris $90,000 to perform and $120,000 for Foster the People, said Jonathan Schonfeld, SGP co-chairman. In 2011, the Goo Goo Dolls received $110,000 while the Steve Miller Band was paid $160,000 in 2008. I think its going to be way better of a turnout than last year, and the shows are designed for the students, he said. Haley Doyle, Growl associate producer of communications, said ticket sales are looking well and are higher this year than last year. Flavet Field holds 17,000 seats, and bleacher tickets have already sold out. Gator Growl past 82 years. Right now, were preparing for a sellout, Doyle said. The Homecoming weekend will kick off with a 2-mile fun run called the SunTrust Gator Gallop, which is open to everyone. The race starts at 11:30 a.m. and begins at the Percy Beard Track. The Homecoming Parade will follow at noon. About 400 people have signed up for the race, said Faith Strasser, Gator Gallop director. It should be really fun, and itll be a good atmosphere because its the kick off before the parade, Strasser said.Revamped Gator Growl approaches; performers paid $210K THE ASSOCIATED PRESSORLANDO Defense attorneys for four Florida A&M band members charged in a drum majors death said Tuesday the states anti-hazing law is so vague that what happened on the band bus can be considered a contest, not hazing. Fifteen former band members were charged with manslaughter and hazing in the November 2011 death of Robert Champion, of Decatur, Georgia. All but the four remaining defendants cases have settled. Champion died after running through a gauntlet of band members who hit him with he walked through the bus. However brutal you (may) think it may be, crossing Bus C was competitive, said Richard Escobar, a defense attorney for former FAMU band member Dante Martin. You have an individual who was crossing, along with three or four of his buddies, trying to get him from the front of the bus to the back tion, thats competitive. Defense attorneys said a sentence in the anti-hazing law makes it impossible to determine what conduct is prohibited. It reads: Hazing does not include customary athletic events or other similar contests or competitions or any activity or conduct that furthers a legal and legitimate objective. When you read it, do you know what is illegal, what you can do and cant do? Escobar said. Champion vomited and complained of trouble breathing. He soon fell unconscious and couldnt be revived. Defense attorneys plan to use testimony from two linguistic experts and may introduce the audio recordings of the legislative process that created the law. Circuit Judge Rene Roche set a hearing for next week. She already has denied a previous motion asking that the law be ruled unconstitutional, but she allowed defense attorneys to set to start Oct. 27. Defense attorneys also have asked the judge to keep the word hazing from being used at the trial and to exclude any reference to Champion being gay. Champions parents have said they dont think his sexual orientation had anything to do with the hazing, but the defendants attorneys say any testimony about it could prejudice jurors against their clients.Defense argues FAMU hazing death could be considered contestThe events focus is hidden disabilities DIS ABILITY, from page 1Fuchs is Cornells provost; McLaughlin is NYUs provostreal membership. That time will happen as I become more and more at one with the University of Florida and its programs and its culture. Fuchs, who spent the past six years as the Cornell University provost, spoke to the same group at 7:30 p.m. He said the president has the unique responsibility of setting the tone of the university, which is done through visibility and accessibility. It would a real honor and privilege to be a member and a No. 1 fan of The Gator Nation, Fuchs said. The Gator Nation is quite special. Graduate Assistants United took up about one-third of the audience. Representatives said they were not as happy with the process of asking set questions, as they came to the assemblies looking to ask their own. We want to work together with (the president) to make UF a top 10 university and improve working conditions for graduate students, said Kevin Funk, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science. Also in the audience was Gainesville Mayor Ed Braddy, who said he hopes to maintain a strong relationship with UF President Bernie Machens predecessor.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ARIANA FIGUEROAAlligator Staff WriterAfter senators trickled in from the interviewing sessions for the next UF president, the Student Senate unanimously passed four bills allocating funds to student organizations. The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) received $301 to discuss and spread awareness of marijuana prohibition. The Mayors Council was granted a $1,000 budget to host a family-friendly concert for UF students. The last two bills approved funding for religious organizations. Alpha Omega was granted $1,002.25 to hold events for the holiday, and BAPS Campus Fellowship received $900 to celebrate Hindu New Year. Following the bills, Student Body President Cory Yeffet introduced SGTV, a weekly YouTube channel dedicated to reaching out to students to inform them about meetings and issues discussed in Student Government. We can only put so much in a new, innovative way to inform students on SG, Yeffet said. The meeting then moved on to an orientation session for the newly appointed senators. Informations and Communications chairwoman Katie Burns went over the structure of SG with the new senators. I think its important that the recent senators receive the information in a clear and concise manner, Burns said. Senate unanimously passes four funding bills

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Brittany Maynard will die on Nov. 1. The Oregon resident will take a doctor-prescribed pill to end her life. Maynard, diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, advocates implementing and expanding death with dignity laws in other states, and her efforts have brought the issue of euthanasia to the forefront of the publics mind. Most people express clear, unambiguous opinions about this controversial issue. They either staunchly support euthanasia as a right to exercise liberty or wholeheartedly disagree with it and defend the sacredness of human life, even in suffering. My opinion is that I want to extend compassion, but I also want to value life. This opinion falls somewhere in the middle, in a gray area in between the black and white. I am not the only one stuck in this gray area, and this unsure, but deeply concerned opinion deserves to be heard. The public should also truly investigate and consider both sides of the argument before making a decision. The topic of euthanasia is surrounded by strong moral and ethical principles on both sides. The issue demands gentleness and compassion, regardless of what stance you take. heard about the publicity Maynard received, I wrote her off as an activist who wanted everyone to understand she had the right to die. However, further research proved me wrong, as well as proved that my initial thoughts were insensitive, illinformed and incorrect. In Maynards YouTube video, which currently has more than 7 million views, she and her family discuss her choice. Maynard didnt decide hastily. She doesnt have a desire to commit suicide. She wants to live, but there is no cure for her disease. Her condition is deteriorating, and she doesnt want to continue suffering when there appears to be no hope for recovery. Maynard, who moved to Oregon so she could qualify for euthanasia, simply wants to tell her story so that other people can have the choice she did. A response to Maynards story has also received media attention. Kara Tippetts, 38, also has terminal cancer. She is a wife, mother and devout Christian. After hearing Maynards story, she reached out to Maynard in a letter published on aholyexperience.com. The letter is touching and pleads with Maynard not to end her life. Tippetts extends her greatest sympathy for Maynards situation but gently and gracefully begs Maynard to reconsider because she believes it should not be our decision to end our lives. Tippetts encourages Maynard to live until her last breath, to not hasten the end of her life because it is choosing life and not choosing death that is truly the courageous story. My personal values and morals want to pletely agree when considering Maynards grim situation. Tippetts writes about the Hippocratic Oath which states, First, do no harm. She explains doctors who prescribe pills for death are doing their patients harm. However, the other equally thought-provoking side of this argument is that doctors hurt their patients by not prescribing the pill. Discussion of the Hippocratic Oath leads to a conversation about the pros and cons of euthanasia. These arguments mostly deal with whether choosing death is a constitutional right and if allowing the practice leads to a slippery slope of euthanasia for the elderly or those with mental and psychological problems. There are no clear answers to these quesone side. For now, both the stories of Brittany Maynard and Kara Tippetts shape my uncertain stance on euthanasia and my plea to carefully consider both sides due to the heaviness of this issue. By all means, pick a side and stick with it, but do this carefully and with discretion. Make sure you know why you chose your given side. If your research happens to land you somewhere in the middle, thats all right. Most importantly, be sure to maintain respect and understanding for those who disagree with you. Both sides of this issue are ultimately concerned about the dignity and quality of human life. Lindsay Alexander is a UF journalism sophomore.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9Megan Reeves / Alligator Staff JamminJosh Altfater, a 27-year-old guitarist in the band Shrub, does a sound check for a private show at The JAM on Tuesday night. The band is on tour from Columbus, Ohio. LOCAL TENLEY ROSSAlligator Contributing Writer As the upcoming midterm elections approach, the White House is encouraging college students to vote, and the local community is trying to do the same. President Barack Obama and his team began their effort last Thursday by visiting Cross Campus in Los Angeles, a business venue that mentors young professionals and entrepreneurs in their own businesses. The Obama administration hopes that policies like student loan assistance, education spending, the new health care law and job-training programs will appeal to the millennial generation. Stephen Craig, a UF professor and expert in voting and elections, said just because the White House is trying to get young voters to midterm elections, doesnt mean it will actually work. Young people are less engaged in politics and, therefore, less likely to participate in elections, he said. The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections websites election results contion, 804 out of 4,709 registered to vote at the Reitz Union actually voted. Pam Carpenter, supervisor of elecliever in the power of voting. She said she hopes when students realize they still have power to vote, they will take more initiative at the polls. The people can still make any decision, Carpenter said. On Sept. 25, the Supervisor of Elecister voters but only had four registration applications turned in. Is it important to allow medical marijuana or no? Is it important to conserve land? she said. Whatever we vote on, we live with. Chris Cassada, a UF geology major, is part of Students for Sensible Drug Policy and tables on the Plaza of the Americas in support of medical marijuana. He said the issue resonates with the millennial generation because the marijuana taboo isnt as apparent. I wish more young people would vote, especially considering the policies that are going to be put into place that ty, Cassada, 23, said. Its our future. He registered students to vote until Oct. 6 and is now passing out absentee ballots. Students can vote on campus at the Reitz Union, the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the Samuel P. Harn White House encourages students to vote, Gainesville prepares for elections VIRTUAL REALITY HEADPIECE TAKES YOU THROUGH THE LIFE OF A CHICKEN. ALEXANDRA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterStudents will have to wait until next semester to experience life as a chicken. Peta2s virtual reality experience, I, Chicken, was set up on the Plaza of the Americas on Tuesday but was quickly I, Chicken uses virtual reality technology to give people a glimpse into the life of a chicken about to be slaughtered. Through a virtual reality headpiece, participants are transformed into chickens walking around in a pasture. They can even make a chicken friend to follow around, said Peta2 crew member Grace Woodward. After a few minutes, a crew member grabs the students arm and the audio of a farmer picking up chickens for slaughter plays. The participants are then put in a virtual truck and sent to the slaughterhouse. Its made kids be able to empathize with these animals more than they would have if they never thought about their position before, Woodward said. Although the display was unable to work outside Tuesday, Woodward said they would return next semester so UF students can experience the simulation. Hannah Stone, a UF biology sophomore, said she probably wouldnt try the simulation. I just think it sounds really weird, Stone, 19, said. She said it might be too gruesome for some students. The simulation isnt meant to be scary, Woodward said. I, Chicken is traveling to colleges across the country in an attempt to raise awareness of the conditions these animals experience. Our generation has the highest percentages of dedicated vegetarians and vegans, and we want to keep that going, Woodward said. We are becoming more interested in environmental issues, animal welfare issues and their health, so thats why were particularly going after colleges.Peta2 reschedules torture simulation Our generation has the highest percentages of dedicated vegetarians and vegans.Grace WoodwardPeta2 crew member THE ASSOCIATED PRESSHONG KONG Its a protest for political reform playing ping pong and singing Happy Birthday? As Hong Kongs pro-democracy street protests enter a third week, the civil disobedience movement has given rise to some increasingly bizarre scenes, espehaphazard protest camp has attracted a motley cast of characters. Here are just a few of them: DEITIES AT BARRICADES protest zone, a bemused crowd is gathering around mini shrine set up for the Chinese folk hero and deity Guan Yu. The makeshift worship station acquired a roof overnight and is complete with fruit and incense offerings. If you dont worship him, you may go to the other end of the protest zone. Someone has set up an altar to Jesus there, a demonstrator explained to an agitated woman who was clearly unhappy about the protests taking over her neighborhood. The shrine is a clever response after several nights of brawling and violent clashes among protesters, poKongs triads, or organized crime gangs, but neither mobsters nor police would want to offend Guan Yu, a Someone dreamed this up, built it in a short time, and now look its evolved into a temple, said Terry Li, a 27-year-old civil servant marveling at the shrine. THE BIRTHDAY SONG TACTIC Who knew singing Happy Birthday could be a defense tactic? Faced with angry residents and local shopkeepers who stop by now and then to hurl insults at the camp, the students sometimes break into song to drown out their opponents. Their song of choice: a ridiculously cheerful rendering of Happy Birthday, which works remarkably well at turning away troublemakers. The story goes that when a protester inadvertently played the tune on his phone during one vicious shouting match, the crowd spontaneously decided to sing along. That was enough to leave those who had started the ruckus speechless. THE IKEA FURNITURE MAN Protesters have come out on the streets night after night, sleeping on mats and cardboard or setting up tents to make sure authorities do not retake the streets overnight. One man has decided to take it further, bringing a wooden bed complete with sheets and a neatly rolled small matching bookcase, adorned with a Chinese paperback on economics and the The Lord of the Rings trilogy, among other titles. A protester told reporters he had bought the furniture from Ikea to make the protest zone homier. LEFTIST PINGPONG TABLES? was the appearance one night of pingpong and mahjong tables on the occupied streets. Videos and photos showed people entertaining themselves at the games, while others laid out food for a hearty outdoors hot pot apparently after protesters complained that the frivolity put the pro-democracy movement in a bad light. Police were quick to seize on the episode to condemn the protesters, and a pro-Beijing newspaper put the photos on its front page. Illegal occupiers are occupying the roads as their living space and playground, brought in the furniture, but protesters suspected it was a smear campaign by rivals. Numerous posters at the scene now warn demonstrators to beware of leftist shorthand for Communist tactics. I want true universal suffrage, not a carnival, one sign read.Hong Kong: odd protest scenes

Vote online at alligatorSports.org.SEC Commissioner to retireSoutheastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive announced Tuesday that he will retire from his position on July 31, 2015. Slive has been the SEC commissioner since July 2, 2002. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynJeff Driskel delivered a perfect strike to Tevin Westbrook. Hard, fast, low. Driskel throws it on the money, Westbrook said. You can tell he played baseball in the past. But a pitch is only as good as the catch. Driskel came through on his end, dodging and faking out defenders until he spotted a wideopen receiver in the corner of the end zone, tossed a spiral and hoped for the best. The Swamp let out a collective groan, the sound of 88,014 people being punched in the gut at the same time. Westbrook dropped the ball. Two minutes later, Florida dropped the game. Mistakes happen, Driskel said. But unfortunately for the Gators receiving corps, mistakes are happening far too often. In a position where catching of necessary skills, Floridas wide receivers are coming up short. However, Will Muschamp doesnt want you to point the Leak, who has no prior experience coaching pass catchers. Nobody can catch it for them, Muschamp said. Theyve got to catch the ball. We work on JUGS (machines), we work on any handeye, lot of that. (Leak) cant catch it for them. So if its not technical, its mental, right? Absolutely, offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said. I think right now, theyre like anybody else. They dont wanna let anybody down. They dont wanna let down the guys on the team. I dont see it as a lack of concentration for the most part. I see it as trying not to make a mistake. And it maybe leads to that. For Westbrook, the catch would have meant an almost guaranteed win. It would have meant a 4-1 overall record and a 3-1 Southeastern Conference mark. For Westbrook, all that came to mind in the two seconds before the ball came his way. I just didnt focus hard enough on the ball, had too much emotions in it, Westbrook said Tuesday. If I wouldve went back Id just focus more on the ball and not too much on the emotions of the game. Just three days after the drop, the senior tight end said he had multiple times. It was one he wishes he had back not only for the impact it would have made on the team, but also because of the fact it was such an easy catch to make. Ive watched it over and over again, he said. I didnt look the ball in. As soon as I saw it the I knew I didnt look it in. Every pass you catch youre supposed to look it in. I took it for granted thinking that it was such an easy pass. And then when it hit my hands I was too excited to go celebrate with the team that I forgot that I had to secure the ball. On 15 separate occasions before the LSU game, Floridas receivers experienced the same feeling when they let the ball slip through their hands. With the margin of error becoming slimmer by the game for UF, Roper and Leak now have the task of making every practice, every drill and every pass as close to game-like realism as possible in order to take the edge off the receivers. If the Gators can imitate the stress of a game during training, Westbrook and the rest of Floridas pass catchers will think less and react more when the lights are on and the bullets are live. The JUGS and all that stuff is good, but I learned from coach (David) Cutcliffe a long time ago practice doesnt make perfect, Roper said. Practice makes permanent. So what you have to do is practice at the speed of the game, make it a game rep. And the more we do that, hopefully it transitions to being more successful. But really it gets down to those guys Kan Li / Alligator StaffTevin Westbrook reacts after dropping the ball in the end zone during Floridas 30-27 loss to LSU on Florida receivers struggling to catch passes this seasonCOLLEGE FOOTBALL MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyIts hard to believe that we are already halfway through the 2014 college football season, but week eight is upon us. There are several matchups that will determine which teams are contenders and pretenders, and a few chances football playoff. No. 14 Kansas State @ No. 11 Oklahoma-Noon, ESPN Both of these teams have only one loss on their records, but both losses are different in some respects. Kansas States only blemish came from a home loss to No. 6 Auburn in the fourth week of the season, whereas the Sooners lost to a then-25th ranked TCU team on the road. Because of the losses, the matchup lost a little bit of its luster, but this game will The damage from Oklahomas loss to TCU was lessened a little bit with the Horned Frogs slip up against Baylor last Saturday, but if Kansas State can give the Sooners their second loss in the conference, it could knock them out of Big 12 title and playoff bid contention. No. 21 Texas A&M @ No. 7 Alabama3:30pm, CBS What looked to be one of the monster games inside the Southeastern Conference Western Division looks more ordinary as the Aggies limp in to Tuscaloosa, Ala., coming off of two consecutive losses. Their defense has been virtually nonexistent in the last two games, giving up a combined 83 points and 897 total yards. The Crimson Tide arent as formidable as it once looked, needing two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to hold off Arkansas with a one-point victory last week on the road. In their last two games theyve scored just 31 points, which sounds like a lot but before that they were averaging 42 points per game. Some fans have already expressed their negativity with the Crimson Tide only beating the Razorbacks by a point, which Nick Saban described as frustrating this week. Alabama gets a chance to put those critics to rest with a big win over the Aggies at home. No. 10 Georgia @ Arkansas-4pm, SEC Network A Todd Gurley-less at least for now Georgia team travels to Little Rock, Ark., to take on a scrappy Arkansas team that is inching closer and closer to an SEC upset victory. Gurley, who was the Heisman front runner until a week ago, is currently under investigation by the NCAA, which is looking into whether or not Gurley accepted money for signing autographs. He Gurley has practiced with the team this week, however, leading some to believe he may be cleared by the NCAA by the end of this week.

GRAHAM HALLAlligator Writer@Graham311Florida womens basketball coach Amanda Butler found herself using the word elevate to team during the teams Media Day on Thursday. How could she not? The team has elevated its expectations, hoping to improve upon a season that saw the Gators make the postseason for the third time under Butlers eight-year reign. Theyve also elevated their roster, adding the necessary element of height that is so critical to a basketball teams success. Redshirt senior Kayla Lewis was the tallest healthy player on the team last season, standing an even six feet, although probably a little taller in her Nike high-tops. She was often called upon to play center and power forward, a drastic shift for a player whos used to playing guard with the ball in her hands. Thats not the case this season. Lewis, the lone senior on Floridas roster, will hand the low-post reigns to a trio of players taller than herself redshirt junior Viktorija Dimaite, along with freshmen Brooke Copeland and Haley Lorenzen. Though her position will change, Lewis is eager to continue her role as a seasoned leader of the Gators in her more natural guard position. She doesnt think anything has changed, except the way people outside the team view her. I dont think theres a difference in my role as a leader on the team, Lewis said. From the outside theres an expectation that OK youre a senior, youre supposed to lead, but not much has actually changed for me. I think internally, my teammates have the same expectation of me that they had last year, which rose as the season went on. Admittedly, it was a tough road getting to this point. Lewis with injuries, and she missed the After rehabbing and regaining her form, Lewis suffered a stress fracture just three games into her sophomore season that led to her redshirting the rest of the season. Her breakout season came the following year, where she went on to start every game for the With expectations high for Lewis, she made sure not to disappoint. Along with graduated senior Jaterra Bonds, Lewis was often looked upon to lead the Gators. Her consistent improvement led to her being named the on the Florida Gators. Eager to show her versatility, Lewis made sure to contribute to the Gators in every category she could. In turn, she led the team in age, blocked shots, free throw attempts and minutes played. I dont feel any heightened responsibility, Lewis said. I just want to raise my game to a higher level from last season. Moving back to the guard position with the added experience she gained playing center, Lewis knows she can bring a new element to her game that may have been missing before. We are excited with the versatility we do have, because with me and Ronni (Williams) both being guards, and having some true post players inside, we will have more of a dual post game than we had last season, Lewis said. We have some shot blocking and shot changing people down there that we didnt have last year, and I think thats going to make a huge difference.

IAN COHENAlligator Writer@icohenbMary Wise has not had much reason to be angry this season. Florida is undefeated in Southeastern Conference play and is currently top-3 in the conference in hitting percentage, service aces, kills and assists. But sometimes anger comes with the job. Is there a time when I lose the smile? Wise said. Ask the players that. Ask the players when I put the clipboard above my face. Wise has seen her teams potential, and from her perspective, they havent come close to reaching it. No. 8 Florida (12-3, 6-0 SEC) will face South Carolina (13-4, 3-2 SEC) in Columbia, S.C., tonight at 6 in what could be UFs most challenging conference match yet. Statistically, the Gamecocks and the Gators match up evenly. Alex Holston, the reigning SEC league in kills (3.5/set) and points (4.05/set). 6-foot-4 Middle blocker and SEC Freshman of the Week Rhamat Alhassan leads the conference in hitting percentage (.475) and is fourth in blocks (1.34/set). Against South Carolina, Holston faces the SECs second ranked digging team (15.18/set) and Alhassan will try to out block the SECs leading team in blocks per set, at 2.66. Our offense better be on point, Wise said. South Carolina is a team where balls are going to come back. Hopefully not too fast at the net, but we have to stay patient offensively. The Gators excel at limiting opposing teams kills. They are second in the SEC in opponent hitting percentage at .167. One of the things we really hang our hat on and try real hard is to hold a team under their typical said. Can we make kills (for the opSouth Carolina looks to accomplish a feat no SEC team has done this year: win at least two sets against Florida. Wise welcomes the challenge on the road and views it as an opportunity for growth. The stronger competition they face, the faster Florida can reach the level of play Wise knows its capable of reaching. Its her job to get them there. The hard part is when your expectations are greater than what the players have of themselves. And when the players expectations are similar to that of the coach, then youre in a really good place, Wise said. But the hardest part is to get players to understand how much better they can be. How hard they can push.
