PATRICK PINAKAlligator Staff Writerppinak@alligator.orgIts great to be a Florida Gator and to live in Gainesville. Gainesville ranked No. 5 in the top 20 best small cities for college students, according to the ranking released Monday by The American Institute for Economic Research. Factors like student life, culture, economic health and opportunity were assessed from various small college cities nationwide. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said one of the most important factors was how closely bound the university and community are. Its hard for anybody to think of Gainesville without thinking about the University of Florida, he said. Orlando said the music scene and locally owned restaurants make for a vibrant and interesting city culture. Everything really centers around and caters to students, he said. Orlando said county public schools will be closed Friday along with UF for the Homecoming Parade, which shows how invested the Gainesville and Alachua communities are in UF. Tallahassee ranked No. 19 on the list of 20 cities. Orlando said this could be because Floridas capital has other major identifying factors, like state government. Nicholas Smith, general manager of The Swamp Restaurant, said his business has been around for about 20 years. Gainesville has everything you need while still being a small town, he said, and were happy to be a part of it. Smith, who attended UF in 1997, said he moved away after college but couldnt resist coming back. He said Gainesville is different from other small cities because it doesnt feel clustered. You have a mix of outdoor things to do like Paynes Prairie and Lake Wauburg, a great university, great arts scene and, of course, great sports, he said. Simon Nash, a barista at Maudes Caf, said Gainesville is like a big city but with half the cost of living. It has lots of affordable, interesting restaurants, beautiful women, a great school and a great art scene, he said. Nash said Gainesville is different because its so diverse, including downtown. He said his favorite part of Gainesville is its high concentration of intelligent, progressive-minded young people. University of Florida people tend to be more my cup of tea, he said. Kelly Vidal, a 21-year-old UF political science senior, said she thinks Gainesville was ranked high because of the amount of students in the population. She said she also likes that everything she needs is by campus, unlike in Tallahassee. It makes sense that the best school in Florida is ranked so highly, Vidal said.

Fuchs currently serves as the provost of Cornell University, one of the nations premier institutions of higher learning. Fuchs academic credentials are impeccable, which makes him an ideal choice for the position. According to information provided by the UF Board of Trustees, Fuchs is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Scienc, and numerous other academic and professional organizations. As provost at Cornell, Fuchs oversaw a number of initiatives to help guide the university toward a top-10 ranking and to enhance its academic reputation. Fuchs has also demonstrated his commitment to diversity in academia through his leadership in Cornells Toward New Destinations program. The board deserves credit for its decision making throughout the presidential selection process. Hunter Rawlings, president of the Association of American Universities, effusively praised UFs choice of Fuchs, describing him as smart, highly organized, consultative yet also decisive; a person of high integrity and strong vision. He will be a superb leader for the University of Florida as well as a great colleague for his fellow AAU presidents and chancellors, Rawlings said. tic about potentially becoming the next president of The Gator Nation. It would a real honor and privilege to be a member and a No. 1 fan of The Gator Nation, he said. Fuchs response starkly contrasted his competitor, NYU Provost David McLaughlins, apathetic response of: I will be, at best, an honorary Gator. UFs decision to select candidates with exceptional academic Universitys selection of its own new president. FSU apparently chose its new leader, state Sen. John Thrasher, based on his extensive political and business connections and not on his academic credentials. In addition to serving as a Florida senator, Thrasher previously served as the chair of Gov. Rick Scotts reelection campaign. Unlike the candidates selected by the board, Thrasher has claimed he was selected based on his strong fundraising ability. ing raised $1 billion in gifts during his career at Cornell. The selection of Fuchs demonstrates to the entire country that UF is serious about establishing itself as one of the nations premier universities. The decision also shows that universities do dents who are little more than professional fundraisers. ly committed to making their school a better, stronger university. We look forward to a bold new era of growth and change at UF under Fuchs leadership. 73 TOTAL VOTES26% YES 74% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Have you or will you try the tofu at Chipotle? Todays question: Are you pleased with the new president-elect?We can do more with modern technologyLast Wednesday, rockstar astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson gave the keynote address at a conference for the information security industry. I refer to him as a rockstar because hes the only astrophysicist I know by name. Id imagine Im not alone. The address was fairly lengthy and casual. Tyson wore jeans and joked about letters he got from tickedoff second graders after the revoking of Plutos planetary status. The most interesting portion of Tysons spiel was when he called out the tech industrys startup culture, saying society has bigger problems than what can be solved with your next app. Tyson was criticizing what he believes is a decline in American innovation. We have an incredible amount of resources and potential, but were using it to create goat simulators and new nude-picture-sharing technologies rather than The fact is, were living in a period of incredible technological revolutions and innovations. iPhones came out only seven years ago yet, for most of us, life without them is already wholly unimaginable. This tremendous proliferation of information technology brings with it incredible potential, which weve It makes sense that Tyson would give a speech lamenting the fact that technology isnt doing as much as it can to improve society before a group of people dedicated to promoting technologies that serve societys best interests. Both Tyson and these technological innovators look at our advancements and see the capability to make even greater strides in health sciences, transportation and energy. One thing Tyson didnt elaborate on is the effect our developments could have on broader social issues, which information technology isnt tackling at full capacity. As any harping Journalism 2.0 advocate will eagerly tell you, social media is the biggest thing since the Gutenberg Bible. Sure, social media was widely used to organize events from Ferguson to the Arab Spring to the Hong Kong protests. However, in none of these cases has real, lasting, positive change happened. Protests in St. Louis reignited last weekend, and the legacy of the Arab Spring so far has been a new crop of tyrants in Egypt and chaos in the Middle East so menacing that our military is getting involved yet again. Even when technology is used this way, the goals are intends to use viral technology to mobilize our generation to stamp out cigarette smoking forever. Its a cool idea, but are there no other worthy causes? Smoking is horrible for you, but there isnt a single person over the age of 5 in this country who doesnt already know that. Surely we can set higher goals for ourselves. With our vast resources and our ability to access and disseminate enormous amounts of information, we stand at an important point in history. We are the ones who get to decide how these amazing technologies will be used. We get to help decide how todays kids and every generation after will interact with, understand and perceive their world. dozen hours or so. Alec Carver is a UF journalism sophomore.

I usually write the songs that I want to hear and be true to my experience of grace, and do it in a way thats authentic. He has a speech impediment, but its lost when he starts to sing.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2014 KERI AND KELSI MATWICKAvenue WritersNow is the time to start preparing for the holidays ahead. No, we dont mean shopping or menu planning, which are good ideas by the way, but preparing for the social events are to know how to give good toasts, a univer sal practice of honoring a person or occasion with an expression of goodwill and a drink. The holidays present many opportunities to give toasts with gatherings of friends and fam ily ahead, including parties, winter weddings and graduations. in conjunction with eating and always with guests or friends. The shared activity of drink ing alcohol tends to give the interaction infor mality and lowers inhibition, while toasting formalizes it and makes it a constructive social gives a toast to the guest of honor and ends with formulaic cheers. Guests signal their ap proval with the clinking of lifted glasses and a of alcohol or not, seals the ritual and bonds the group. A basic condition, or felicity condition, in toasting is that the toast should express a wish regarded favorably by everyone at the group. Wedding toast scenes from romantic comedy movies often break this condition to provide comedic relief in a potentially stressful and emotionally high situation. For instance in the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral, a best mans toast offsets the seriousness of the occa sion but is kept appropriate with its incorpora The term toast also refers to the verbal ex pression accompanying the drink.

HERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writer@EricaAlyssaBilly Donovan knows he has to rebuild. After ending a history-making 2013-14 season at the NCAA Final Four tournament, Florida mens basketball program starts this season as a very different team with a similar set of high expectations. As he begins his 19th year coaching the Gators, Donovan looks to manage those high expectations and build a team that is strong enough to face the challenges ahead. I think theyre hopeful they can get back to that point, but they havent had to face a lot of adversity, Donovan said. Personally, maybe at different points in time they did, but we never faced a lot of team adversity. This season starts off with a heavier dose of adversity than last. Floridas greatest challenge will be replacing the presence of four starting seniors, on and off the court. Weve talked a lot about this in the off season, not to say were going into the year hoping to lose or face adversity, how you respond to those things Jordan Mcpherson / Alligator Staff UF mens basketball coach Billy Donovan speaks during the teams media day on Wednesday. Florida is rebuilding after graduating four seniors in 2014. Only one starter junior Michael Frazier II remains on the team from the 2013-14 season. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Staff Writer@J_McPherson1126Antonio Morrison is on a hot streak. The junior linebacker totaled a career-high 14 tackles during Floridas 30-27 loss to LSU. Morrisons previous career-high tackle total was 12 set against LSU on Oct. 12, 2013. He played well, redshirt senior linebacker Mike Taylor around to the ball, hitting people, getting people to the ground. Morrison leads the Gators with 46 total tackles and has racked up double digit tackles in every Southeastern Conference game this season. He is playing his best football since hes been here, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. Hes got to continue to do that. Were counting on him to do that. Hes a guy that takes his job and what we do very seriously. He puts a lot of time into it and I think it shows how he plays. He spends time on football a bunch outside of when he has to be here in meetings and practice. I think its showing.

think we were just pressing too hard. Florida turned the momentum in the second set, at one point going on a 9-2 run to take a 20-13 lead. Soon after, the Gators tied the match at one with a 25-18 victory. South Carolina never got close to its initial hitting clip for the remainder of the match. The big difference in the match was when we started limiting (South Carolinas) offense, Wise said. First set, theyre hitting .395. and then from there they didnt hit over .100. We needed to make an adjustment and that we did. Florida jumped out to a 16-11 lead in the third set before cruising to a 25-13 win. After a back captured the victory with a 25-19 fourth set win. Alex Holston was a large part kills, eight digs and two service aces. Junior Mackenzie Dagostino contributed 48 assists and four total blocks. When you play a team thats playing that well, that low error, I mean theres no room for error, Wise said. Its a win on the road against a team that played well. Ill take it. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15is going to be really important, Donovan said. Theres no doubt in my mind Scottie (Wilbekin) had the year he had because he responded the right way to adversity. Same thing with Patric Young. Same thing with (Casey) Prather, Will (Yeguete). All those guys responded well to that. Donovan is hopeful one of the younger leaders of his team will respond well to early adversity this season. Sophomore Chris Walker is suspended to a violation of team rules, Donovan conWalker will miss an exhibition game against Barry and two home games against William & Mary and Miami. Itll be tough, but I can get through it, Walker said. Walker said he hasnt spoken to Wilbekin, who faced a similar suspension at the start of last season, but he plans on reaching out to him. Regardless of the late start, Donovan believes Walkers greatest challenge this season will be managing the high expectations the Gators fanbase have placed on the young forward from Bonifay, Fla. Chris Walker played four minutes a game, all of a sudden everybody is expecting him to be a savior in the front court, Donovan said. I cant really tell you he is ready to handle that or capable of handling that or is in a position to handle that. Sophomore center John Egbunu has been a big addition to Floridas roster literally and metaphorically. The Nigeria native is the tallest and heaviest player on the roster. At 6-foot-11 and 266 pounds with a wingspan of about 7-foot-4. Egbunu is sure to make an impact if he gets to play. Egbunu is a transfer from the University of South Florida, so the Gators are in the process of petitioning the NCAA to grant him immediate eligibility I would say that right now, if I had to guess, its probably leaning more towards him having to sit out this year, Donovan said. Were going to exhaust all of our avenues and see where it leads us. As a freshman at USF, Egbunu started 31 of the Bulls 32 games, averaging 6.2 rebounds and 7.4 points per game. Donovan said freshman guard Brandone Francis has yet to be admitted to UF. Francis will not compete in the 20142015 season. Theres things he has to do academically while hes here to get himself eligible to play, Donovan said. If he progresses in be allowed to come back to practice for the second semester. DeVon Walker is out for the season with an ACL injury he suffered in July. Junior forward Alex Murphy wont likely see any action on the court until the spring semester. Donovan expects the midyear transfer from Duke in 2013-14 to sit out from NCAA transfer regulations. Donovan said he is pleased with the positive direction he has seen Eli Carter moving towards. He said the redshirt junior guard would be much, much better in terms of his availability this year. Carter, who missed most of last season while he was rehabbing a leg injury, is recovering from a little bit of an ankle injury, Donovan said. He has a bone bruise right now that shouldnt slow him too much, Donovan ple days of practice. HOOPS, from page 14Kan Li / Alligator S taffSophomore Chris Walker poses during the 2014 mens basketball media day on Wednesday in the basketball practice facility. Neal embracing playmaker role: Keanu Neal needed some time to adjust. The safety rarely played deep at Bushnell (Fla.) South Sumter High, so he never had as much responsibility in terms of coverage. But after more than a year learning under coach Will Muschamp, Neal has made strides throughout his sophomore year. has a team-high three interceptions and a fumble recovery for a touchdown in addition to 23 tackles and two pass breakups. He has been a guy that, it took him a little more time than it does others as far as scheme and to adjust and play the ball Muschamp said on Wednesdays SEC coaches teleconference. But he has got really good plays. Hes a very good tackler. He has very good instincts in the box and in the deep part of communication skills tremendously. He is a very hard self-evaluator, as a matter of fact probably too hard on himself at times. But he is a guy that continues to improve, gets better every practice. He goes out and hes got a tremendous work ethic. Ive coached a bunch of good safeties and hes going to be right up there with them at the end of the day. Injury update: Leon Orr is set to return to Floridas lineup on Saturday against Missouri. The redshirt senior defensive lineman has missed the Gators past two games since getting his knee scoped. Despite his absence, UFs defensive line has progressed, racking up 10 sacks in the last two weeks. The guys that have been playing up front have been playing really well, Durkin said. Im really happy with our rotation up front and obviously bringing him back just adds one more healthy body to the rotation, which is always a good thing. Well see how he does.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2014 GRAHAM HACKAlligator Writer@graham_hack24If anyone deserves to have a great senior year, its Karina Gutsche. After playing in only one game during her freshman season at UF, Gutsche fought to get playing time in her sophomore year. She succeeded, ultimately appearing in 17 games. By her junior season, she had earned the starting center back position. She started every match and averaged 85.5 minutes per game, the second most among her Gator teammates. After three years of climbing the mountain, it was time to savor a sweet senior season. No. 5 Florida (11-2, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) travels to Columbia, S.C., to face the Gamecocks (9-4-1, 2-3-1 SEC) tonight, and coach Becky Burleigh said she hopes Gutsche will be able to continue doing what the senior has wanted to do all season: Instead of leading the Gators, Gutsche has seen more time on the bench this She sprained her MCL during preseason and was games before returning in Floridas game two games as a substitute before getting the start against Missouri. Finally, she was about to regain her role at pected the swan song she had earned. But after playing only 37 minutes, Gutsche suffered a head injury while going for a ball with a Missouri player and was taken off She was back on the bench for two games. For anyone else, the discouragement would almost be unbearable. But for someone like Gutsche, who has always embraced challenges, one more wasnt enough to dampen her positivity. through the fact that its my senior year, Gutsche said. But its also been a fun journey, just because my role has changed, not only as a player but as a person. Part of that role has been her leadership, shes helped her teammates. Just from being able to watch so many games, I can see the things that certain people need to work on, she said. With my MCL injury, I focused mainly on Claire (Falknor) and Christen (Westphal), just trying to help them. Gutsche was able to return to the starting lineup against Mississippi State on Oct. 10 putting in 45 minutes and she will be looking to see more minutes as the Gators try to strong. Its so frustrating because obviously she spent the beginning of the season injured, came back, and as soon as she came back got injured again, Burleigh said, but hopefully thats all behind us now and shell be in the tant part of what we do.Senior to play after injury-plagued start to 2014 seasonSWIMMING FLORIDA IS 25-0 AGAINST KENTUCKY. AARON FRIEDLANDAlligator Writer@aafriedland Florida mens and womens swimming and diving team (M: 1-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference; W: 2-0, 2-0 SEC) will hit the road to face off against Kentucky (M: 0-1, 0-1 SEC; W: 1-0, 1-0 SEC) tonight at 7.

Coach Martyn Wilby has been pleased with what he has seen so far early into this season. The freshman men were very impressive cant single any one of them out, Wilby said. But as a group, they are starting to understand what college dual meets are about and what college swimming is about. Anybody that was coach Troy set up the relays for the men by class and there was a lot of talk back and forth between the classes about who was going to win and the freshman men didnt back down. They certainly knew what racing was all about. season for this Gators team, it will ence. The freshmen have never traveled before...both sides, said things. You pack your swimsuit in your carry-on, dont put it underneath the plane, it might not get there. Just little things like that, that we now take for granted but the freshmen dont know how to do it.
