The Georgia Southern loss was awful and inexcusable, but at least Florida was competitive in that one. The Gators shot themselves in the foot with a Gatling gun on Saturday night to the tune of six turnovers that produced 24 points.

Dwayne Eric Baker was visiting a friends house at 13 NE 15th St. when he saw the victim sleeping on a couch at about 11 p.m. He approached the victim and said, You have a pretty face, according to police. The 47-year-old then started playing with the victims face, kissing her on the lips and putting his tongue inside of her mouth. He then touched the 11-year-olds breasts through her clothes. The girl ran to her mother who was in another room, police said. The woman said her daughter was visibly shaken and crying when she told her what Baker did. Baker was confronted by the girls family before leaving the residence. The victims mother and another witness followed him and contacted police, who later found Baker at 1800 E. Hawthorne Road. Police also found about 2 grams of cannabis in Bakers pocket. Baker denied ever touching or kissing the victim. He was arrested on two charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, marijuana possession and drug-equipment possession. His bond is currently set at $315,000. A Gainesville man was arrested early Thursday morning after police said he between a door frame and picked up her daughter by the hair when the 9-year-old tried to call police. At about 3:40 a.m., Christopher Mark Walsh, 54, got ancee at 1800 NW Fourth St. The victim whom Walsh lives with and has a child with then tried to leave the residence before the man grabbed her by her hair and dragged her inside. Walsh then smashed the victims head back and forth between a door frame cutting the woman above her left eyebrow, a report said. When the victims daughter, who is not Walshs daughter, heard the argument and tried to call police, Walsh grabbed her by the hair and lifted her off the ground. He then dropped the girl leaving a lump on her head and said, Youre not the boss of my house. When police arrived, the woman told police Walsh tossed her around like a rag doll and that he had been abusive before. Walsh was charged with domestic battery most recently on Dec. 17, 2012. Walsh was arrested on charges of cruelty toward a child, battery and false imprisonment. His bond is currently set at $30,000. A Gainesville man was arrested Saturday evening after police said he had sex with his live-in girlfriends 14-year-old daughter. On Oct. 7, the victims mother left for work at about 10:30 p.m. from her house, located at 2820 NW 13th St. With the woman gone, Demetrius Antonio Brewer, 28, was left alone with her daughter. When the woman returned from work unexpectedly about an hour later, she found Brewer, who didnt have clothes on, in bed with her daughter, a report said. Brewer and the victim were startled and jumped out of the bed. Police were not contacted at the time of the incident but daughter went to the Alachua County Health Department and told medical staff that she had sexual intercourse with Brewer. A report said the department contacted the Department of Children and Families, which then called police. The victim told her mother and sister that she and Brewer had sexual intercourse, but she did not give him consent. Brewer was arrested on charges of sexual battery on a person under 18 years old. His bond is currently set at $150,000.Police roundup: lewd behavior; battery; sexual batteryLOC AL PATRICK PINAKAlligator Staff Writerppinak@alligator.orgUber may have failed nationally this month, but the app-powered ride service is passing the test for Gainesville customers. The Better Business Bureau, council, gave the company an F rating last week after reviewing more three years. An F is the lowest on the councils A+ to F scale. Most of the complaints were related to the companys surge pricing policy, in which rates increase during busy times such as holidays. Uber spokesman Taylor Bennett wrote in an email that Uber hasnt received any surge pricing complaints in Gainesville since it arrived in August. Surge pricing helps bring demand and supply into line, when necessary by incentivizing more drivers to come onto the platform, Bennett said. Victoria Lunkes, 22, said she was hired as an Uber driver about two weeks ago. She said surge pricing was in effect Saturday because of the football game. The highest surge pricing she saw was three times the normal ride rate. She said she gave about 10 to 15 rides from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday. If we had more drivers, there probably wouldnt be high surge pricing, she said. Lunkes said Ubers biggest problem in Gainesville is its lack of drivers. The UF advertising senior said she used the service regularly while in Chicago last summer and that drivers were always available within 5 miles of her location. Lunkes said Uber has been pushing for drivers to recruit friends to apply through incentives. Jessie Berens, 21, said shes used Uber twice since it arrived in Gainesville once in September and once in October. She said shes noticed an increase of drivers since ics and psychology senior, said she hasnt personally seen surge pricing in Gainesville. Its not ideal for prices to go up during busier times, but I guess I understand why, she said. They are a business and need to make a clients who are willing to get them of people. Berens said the F is a little harsh. Shed give the business a B. I think it has some kinks to work out, especially in smaller towns where its newer, but I think overall, theyve done a really good job implementing their services here.Locals weigh in on Uber failing grade HUNTER WILLIAMSONAlligator Staff WriterAnniel Rodriguez started playing guitar when he was 13 years old.

Todays question: Did you go to any Homecoming events this weekend?Looking other way will not end racism Last week, Nick Eagle wrote a column in which he argued we should all just be proud to be Americans. Although Eagles proposal is a noble one, it is rooted in misconceptions and ignorance. Im not blind to the social issues that face our country and the work we must do to better this great nation. Eagle admits that problems still exist among races, sexual orientations and other demographic groups. However, his proposed solution of just overlooking everything wrong with our society and pretending there are no issues is simply unrealistic. Ignoring our countrys many social problems in the name of patriotism is like putting a Band-Aid on a wound that requires stitches. Eagle claims to love living in a country where we are not persecuted for being who we are. I think its safe to say there are many Americans wondering which country he is referring to because it certainly isnt the U.S. For many years, American society was rife with the marginalization and oppression of numerous communities overt discrimination, in many instances. I wont review this oppression in detail because the privilege of certain groups over others throughout American history is widely understood and accepted. Although discrimination isnt as overt as it once was, theres no doubt that discrimination, prejudice and injustice all still exist on interpersonal, cultural and institutional levels. Millions of proud Americans have to deal with both the effects of discrimination occurring today and the residual effects of past discrimination. Many U.S. citizens are still 59 percent now believe is impossible for most to achieve. The reason they feel that way is because instead of addressing the problems we face, many would rather ignore those issues like addressing what is wrong would only perpetuate the ills. There is a fallacy in this thought process. tire would solve the problem? Of course not. Unfortunately, there are people who believe this look-the-other-way mentality is the proper way to handle our societys problems. Beverly Tatum, president of Spelman College, developed an apt metaphor for the status of relations in the U.S., particularly with regard to race: Imagine a moving walkway in an airport always moving in the direction of racial inequality. We are all placed on that walkway. An overt racist is someone running along the walkway. There substantially fewer runners than there were in past years, and that is why so many choose Someone standing still on the walkway is still moving pressive nature of the society we live in today. This is the position advocated for in Eagles column: overlooking all of Americas social and racial problems. However, those in this country who are being oppressed ferently. They realize by accepting their fate and doing nothing, injustice is perpetuated, and their situations will never improve. If you want to be part of the solution, you have to decide to turn around on the walkway and walk in the opposite direction you must stand against racism and discrimination. You have to actively work against the system of racial injustice. It requires more work than standing still, but it is the only way to ever move toward a society that embodies true equality. This principle holds for all forms of oppression, not just racism. We must address these issues and work together to battle inequality so we can all truly be proud Americans. Sitting around and waiting on things to get better on their own is not a real answer. We must realize Americas future leaders will be those proud enough to say: I love America, but we still have work to do. TehQuin Forbes is a UF sociology junior.

Fears about an outbreak in Florida were heightened after a plane carrying one of the nurses diagnosed with Ebola stopped at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Although health care experts assert that the risk of Ebola spreading to Florida is miniscule, Scott has repeatedly stated his commitment to ensuring that the state is fully prepared in case Ebola somehow strikes. The CDC and the federal government have already failed to get ahead of the spread of Ebola in Texas, and were not going to let that happen in Florida, Scott said. Although it is important to be sure that Florida is prepared for any disease outbreak, public health has not been a priority of the Scott administration until now. According to the American Public Health Association, Florida spent about $20 per capita on public health in 2013, which ranked No. 31 in the nation. The Sunshine State receives about $16 per capita in public health funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, No. 45 among all states. The APHA also found that Florida had the fourth-highest level of people without insurance in the U.S. last year at nearly 20 percent. The national uninsured rate is 15.7 percent. A USA Today report found that Florida slashed its public health budget by 15.5 percent in 2012. When Jacksonville experienced an outbreak of tuberculosis that same year, Scotts massive cuts to the Florida Department of Health budget were blamed for the states slow response. Scott also has a mixed track record on one of the most important health care issues of recent years: the Medicaid expansion provided by the federal Affordable Care Act. Throughout the early days of his administration, Scott forcefully opposed the Medicaid expansion, which would have provided hundreds of thousands of poor and disabled Floridians with access to affordable health care. The governor initially claimed that the expansion would be too costly, despite the fact that the federal government would cover more than 90 percent of the programs costs. Although Scott later expressed support for a limited Medicaid expansion, he made no effort to revive the issue after the Florida Legislature rejected the proposal. Scotts decision to prioritize Ebola is less likely about a sincere concern for public health and more likely a strategic decision to take advantage of a hot-button political issue. Hes playing politics with fear, said Nova Southeastern University professor Charles Zelden, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Hes following the Republican Party playbook, which is to scare people into voting. If Scott is truly concerned about disease prevention in Florida, he should commit to strengthening Floridas public health programs permanently, not just when it is politically expedient.MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/OPINIONS Kristan Wiggins EDITOR Bakr Saliq Colleen Wright MANAGING EDITORS Elliot Levy OPINIONS EDITOR TehQuin Forbesopinions@alligator.org
MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Every few months, a new issue takes prominence on the political scene, and most people quickly embrace a solution before considering any of its consequences. The latest political trend to gain popular support has been increasing minimum wage from its current federal rate of $7.25 an hour to $10.10 per hour. Supporters of a minimum wage increase often frame such a proposal as a cure-all for what ails the U.S. economy. A CBS News/The New York Times poll from September shows more than 70 percent of people are in favor of raising minimum wage to such high levels. I believe this support stems largely from the fact that most people arent educated about the consequences of such a policy. Raising the minimum wage sounds good in theory. However, the facts simply dont back up the supposed First, lets just look at how many people actually make minimum wage. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 4.3 percent of hourly workers make minimum wage or less, and most of them tend to be teenagers and part-time workers. In total, about 1.5 million people across the U.S. make minimum wage. When you include workers who make less than minimum wage mostly those who earn the tipped wage rate 3.3 million people earn minimum wage or less. 2 percent of civilians in the labor force earn minimum wage. So how in the world would raising minimum wage to it wont. When you raise minimum wage, those making minimum wage get a pay increase, but nobody else does. What will happen is businesses that have to increase their employees wages by 39 percent will have to increase their prices at nearly the same rate. Those who get a raise end up with pretty much the same purchasing power now that a raise are less able to buy the same amount of goods and services as before. When minimum wage is increased, a fraction of the working population remains unaffected, while 98 percent of people become worse off. The only effects of minimum wage are economic inefLets not put up with it. Lets get rid of minimum wage. Thats not a typo. Lets end the restraints that come with minimum wage. No, it would not lead to massive poverty. Even now, those who make minimum wage and are full time do not fall below the federal poverty threshold. No, it would not lead to people making $2 an hour. Who in the world would with their employers until a fair wage for the amount of skill involved is reached. Wages would start to align more with the natural order of labor demand and supply. All the horrors people say would come with the removal of federal minimum wage would never come to They got paid a fair wage for the work they performed, and industries competed for workers. Most people will not take the hard stance of completely supporting minimum wage, especially such a large increase that is being advocated by politicians like Florida Democratic nominee Gov. Charlie Crist, research the actual facts about the effects of such a policy. Whenever politicians support a policy they claim will have such unambiguously positive effects, there is reason to be skeptical. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Nick Eagle is a UF economics and political science senior. His columns appear on Mondays.Dont buy into minimum wage myths this electionColumnIts a leisurely Sunday afternoon. You turn on the TV to watch some athletic men toss around a football. While most of what you watch is about the game, its undeniselect players. out if they believe in heaven and hell as they go down to the ground to praise the Christian God. But wait a challenger appears. Husain Abdullah, safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, scored a touchdown Sept. 29 from an interception return thrown by Tom Brady. Abdullah immediately slid to his knees and prayed to Allah in celebrayard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. In the coming days, those representing the NFL acted less like professionals working for a multi-million dollar organization and more like disagreeing parents, saying to Abdullah and the masses, Im right. Youre wrong. End of story. Abdullah was incorrect. According to a statement issued by have been no penalty on the play. Hold up, parent No. 1, Im confused. Parent No. 2, the NFL rulebook, says nothing about religion. Instead, it states, Players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations while on the ground. the game. They must be right. Stop everything, parents No. 1 and 2 parent No. 3, the NFL Referees Association, said that this was the correct call on Oct. 3. Alright, parents No. 1, 2 and 3: I dont understand if this display was correct or incorrect, but Tim Tebow wasnt the only one. Multiple NFL players have gotten down on one knee to praise the Christian God during games James Jones, formerly of the Green Bay Packers; Nate Washington of the Tennessee Titans and Dono penalty. Maybe the distinction lies in the number of legs touching NFL parents No. 1, 2 and 3 provide an inconsistent commentary of Im right, regarding religious practices during an NFL game. Abdullah ended up siding with parent No. 3, agreeing that it was his two-knee slide into the praying position that caused the penalty, not his religious display. These three disagreeing parents need to get together and decide on one concrete rule to tell their children, NFL teams ing ideas that are all considered correct. Bottom line: The NFL needs to form concrete boundaries out a solid answer regarding proper celebration. Keegan Williams writes for the Rocky Mountain Collegian.

Plus, the free wristband isnt bad.Local music festival needs volunteersCAMPUS ALEXANDRA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterJonique Simmons almost didnt come to UF. Although she had been accepted, Simmons said she had no way of covering the costs. Thats when the Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars Program stepped in to help her. When I found out I got FOS, it just changed my whole life, the UF sport management freshman said. President Bernie Machen created the Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars Program in 2005. The program generation college students at UF. Between 2012 and 2013, the program received more than $12 million to fund students, according to the programs website. He paved the way for a lot of students to come to the University of Florida, Simmons, 18, said. He just gave us the opportunity to achieve our dreams. With Machens time at UF almost over, students like Alexa Tsongranis said they are sad to see him go. Tsongranis, a UF psychology and advertising junior, said Machen felt like a friend to the scholars. Not only is he the reason Im at this school, FOS has kept me at this school, Tsongranis, 21, said. According to the programs website, the program has supported more than 2,900 students since 2006. Machen made sure he was accessible and visible to the programs students, said Leslie Pendleton, the program director. Any opportunity he had, he would attend events we hosted, Pendleton said. He really loved the program, and he is very beloved by the students. Machen attended the Florida Opportunity Scholars Program reception in September and took individual photos with all 300 scholars. It really showed how much he appreciated us and how much he cared about our future, Simmons said. While the programs students are sad to see Machen go, they said they are excited to see how incoming President Kent Fuchs will move forward with the program. many opportunities for students, said Liza Allison, a 21-year-old UF tourism, events and recreation management junior. If he doesnt know that yet, he will know it. Theres no need to change it in any way unless to better it. Florida Opportunity Scholar and public relations senior Agassy Rodriguez said he was rooting for Fuchs. I hope he continues that tradition of being open with the students, even though he wasnt the one who created the scholarship, the 21-year-old said.Students grateful for Machen program Not only is he the reason Im at this school, FOS has kept me at this school.Alexa TsongranisUF psychology and advertising junior

The Gators (3-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) limited the Tigers (5-2, 2-1 SEC) to just 119 yards and 13 points on oftouchdown by running back Marcus Murphy and a pair of gett. kids played well enough to win the game. Bottom line, coach Will Muschamp said. ty quickly after it got to be about 28-0. This was the second time Muschamp saw his team limit an opponent to less than 120 yards of offense in a game. Its also the second time the Gators lost while holding an opponent to under 120 yards of total offense as Florida State 26, 2011, despite gaining just 95 yards on offense. They get to a point with with what theyre trying to do Thats two fold. But again, its a team game. The rest of Missouris points on Saturday came on a quartet touchdowns. Murphy returned the opening kickoff 96 yards and repunt in the second half 82 yards to break Missouris combined returns touchdown (three kickoff returns, four punt returns). The punt return was a dagger, Muschamp said. That hurt in essence from the standpoint that it changed the game. In the third quarter with the Gators facing a third-and-9 from their 33-yard line, Tistrip-sacked Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel, and Missouri scooped it up and returned it for a 21-yard touchdown to extend its lead to 35-0. threw an interception his Rachel Crosby / Alligator StaffUF safety Keanu Neal (42) pressures Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk during the Gators EDEN OTEROAlligator Staff Writer@edenotero_lIn a battle to stay undefeated in the Southeastern Conference, No. 8 Arkansas in one of the Gators most highly contested matches of the season.

But after Floridas 42-13 homecoming blowout to Missouri on Saturday night, its probably safe to say Muschamp is a dead man walking. entered with a defeat to Indiana at home and a 34-0 loss to Georgia the week prior. When Missouris Marcus Murphy took the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, it was clearly a sign of things to come. In the week leading up to the game, Muschamp said the coaching staff would go with the quarterback who had the hot hand in the game, but it was presumed Jeff Driskel man Treon Harris. Driskel did start and fumbled on the exchange during a handoff to Matt Jones on the opening Florida possession. Driskel came back out on the next series. He threw four incompletions. Harris made his debut on the third series, but on third down he was sacked and fumbled, allowing Missouri to go up 14-0. Driskels next possession ended threeand-out, and the possession following that Florida was down 20-0 at halftime. On homecoming. the second half was just as ugly as the for a touchdown, a Driskel fumble for a Perhaps the one bright spot was Harthrew an interception in between those two.

always thinking about the next thing, whats coming up next and thats just how I look at it. While Alhassan helped Florida offensively, setter Mackenzie Dagostino had to make quick plays to keep the Gators offense moving. Dagostino finished the match with only 35 assists but had two service aces, two block assists and one dig on the day. On paper, the Tampa native didnt produce the huge numbers shes typically known for. But off paper, she put together lengthy plays that allowed Florida to hold onto its momentum. Its not fun to come in and roll through teams and having someone like Arkansas who fights back, like we bite them they bite back, Dagostino said. It makes the game what the game is supposed to be like. It makes us that much better because if you dont have to work for your kills, if you dont have to find different areas to put the ball down on their side of the court, then it doesnt make you a better player. You just do the same exact thing over and over again.With the loss to Missouri and the SEC East title hopes virtually out the window, the wheels have fallen off the Muschamp wagon. It falls on my shoulders, Muschamp said. Nobodys looking around right now, weve got to get back and get our guys dialed back in. Getting the players dialed back in is much easier said than done. The goal Florida set out to achieve winning the SEC East is gone barring major upsets happening within the division in the next few weeks, which is unlikely. Now not putting the destiny in our hands any more, weve got to rely on some other teams, center Max Garcia said. But still got three more SEC games in the East. While it is true that they still have three games remaining Georgia, Vanderbilt and South Carolina Florida lost to all three of those teams last season by a combined 26 points. It wasnt even the Florida defense that was to blame for the 42 point loss. The unit held Missouri to just 119 total yards of offense on Saturday night. Yes, 119 yards and 42 points, you read that correctly. An even more glaring statistic regarding that number: Muschamp is 0-2 when allowing 120 total yards or fewer. Compare that to other FBS head coaches? 94-0. Over the past 10 seasons all other FBS head coaches are 94-0 when holding opponents to 120 total yards or less. Florida football deserves higher standards. I dont know if Jeremy Foley has seen that statistic. Youd hope someone found a way to slip it to him. Even if he hasnt seen it, seeing the 42-13 homecoming loss should be enough. Its time for the sun to set on the Muschamp era in Gainesville. When exactly that will happen remains to be seen. MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15Rachel Crosby / Alligator Staff Florida needs help in order to reach the SEC Championship game COLUMN, from page 13Jordan McPherson / Alligator Staff and Floridas season-high sixth giveaway to Missouri linebacker Darvin Ruise, who returned it 46 yards for the score. We had something going in the second half there, but offensively, just abysmal, Muschamp said. No rhythm and weve got to and move the football. Six turnovers. Thats hard to overcome. Safety Keanu Neal who recorded a career-high 10 tackles in the loss said the game was frustrating, but the frustration is not going to stop them from playing at a high intensity. As a defense we tell ourselves to control the controllable and what happens on the offensive side we cant control, Neal said. Whenever we get a sudden change like that, we get excited to go out there and play football. And while Muschamp praised the defense for its performance, he said the unit could have still done more to change the momentum of the game. We could have created some turnovers on defense, we had some opportunities, Muschamp said. Marcus (Maye) made a nice play on an interception. Strip the ball off somebody, make a play. Thats our mentality. We dont Were not going to do that.Neal had 10 tackles VOLLEY, from page 13 DEFENSE, from page 13
16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014 SOCCER GRAHAM HACKAlligator Writer@graham_hack24After a last-minute loss to South Carolina on Thursday night, No. 5 Florida (11-4, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) dropped its second straight game and fourth of the season on Sunday in Lexington, Ky., losing 2-0 to Kentucky (10-5, 5-3 SEC). The Wildcats played a very physical game against the Gators, and although UF coach Becky Burleigh said the team expected it coming into the match, the team didnt handle it well. struggled to keep the ball and never got in rhythm. Kentucky pressured players with the ball and didnt allow the Gators to build The Wildcats got on the board in the 33rd minute from a Zoe Swift goal, her fourth of the season, and took the one-goal lead into halftime. Florida may have had a more effective game plan for the second half, but it out. The Wildcats added a second goal in the 50th minute from Stuart Pope, who put a rebound from a diving Taylor Burke save in the back of the net. Burleigh called the goal a backbreaker. From that point, the Wildcats locked down defensively and prevented the Gators from getting anywhere near the penalty box, holding Florida to only two shots for the entire second half. Floridas players began getting desperate and started trying to make plays individually, Burleigh said, which caused them to play out of character. Continue reading this story online at alligatorSports.org.Florida shutout by Kentucky, loses second straight matchBurleigh doing that already? Foley has said that he like any competent AD has a list of potential candidates in his desk at all times. If a coaching search is coming, do you really want it to drag on for two months? Coaches not named Bobby Petrino dont often jump ship midseason. Dan Mullen, the coach de jour right now because of his blatant connection to offense and UF, has bigger in his season. As do most of the other head coaching candidates you can drum up in your head at this point. The fact of the matter is Florida is still a destination job no matter what because of what the program is, where the program is, the conference that it plays in and the market value that it has. Foley has Muschamp at a bargain price as far as SEC coaches say no to them after the season, Foley isnt banging on anyones door right now to ask. Firing Muschamp just gives you tience you feel. You want something done anything done run the risk of having a team completely check out. Sure, they could rally around Muschamp and have a profound moment built for a 30 for 30 documentary, or they could completely tank and take a bad season and send it even farther south. Firing Muschamp during the season appeases you. It doesnt appease recruits who will now have more time to be able to be poached by other schools because Florida still wont get a coach by the middle of December at the extreme earliest. It doesnt appease potential coaching prospects for the job, and it doesnt appease the other coaches of the other sports here at UF that Foley must answer to. I ask for patience, even though you probably dont have any left. It will get better around here, but I thick of the season will turn this ship around, itll just give you a peace of mind. FOOTBALL, from page 1 3 KEY PLAYS SWAMP STUDS Marcus Murphy opened up the game with a bang. The Missouri senior running back returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown to give the Tigers a 7-0 lead just 11 seconds into the game. KEY STAT: 6 This stat is three-fold. Six is the number of sacks Floridas offensive line surrendered against Missouri one more than it gave up all season heading into this game. Its the number of turnovers the Gators had on offense. And its the number of drives quarterback Treon Harris started on Saturday. Demarcus Robinson Keanu Kneal Matt Jones Bryan Cox Jr. Andre Debose Jeff Driskel Kyle Christy Treon Harris Max Garcia Antonio Morrison Austin Hardin Frankie Velez Tevin Westbrook TURNING POINT Missouri essentially capped the game early in second-half possession, Tigers running back Marcus Murphy returned a Kyle Christy punt 82 yards to give Missouri a four-possession lead. Neal was a bright spot for Floridas defense on Saturday. The sophomore recorded a career-high 10 total tackles against Mis souri and leads the Gators with 17 solo stops on the season. While Floridas offense struggled to do just about anything against Missouri for the bulk of the game, Harris led the Gators to two scoring drives. The game against Missouri with 98 passing yards and 26 rushing yards. On the Gators last drive, trailing 42-7, Treon Harris showed he has the capabili ty to lead UFs offense. With Harris at the a 15-play, 82-yard drive that was capped by a Harris 3-yard touchdown run. One week after dropping the potential game-winning touchdown against LSU, Westbrook redeemed him self.
