In my high school, one lesbian in my grade had to drop out for mental health issues, Arthur, 20, said. LGBT students are more susceptible to emotional toll from harsh words because usually, theres internalized shame about being LGBT. LB Hannahs, director of LGBT Affairs, had Payne as a professor while attending Syracuse University and is involved with Paynes institute. When we talk about LGBT bullying, we tend to think of it in the context of K-12, (and) we tend to stop talking about bullying on college campuses, but it still happens, and we dont think about it in the same way, Hannahs said. Forming Gay-Straight Alliance groups and creating safe spaces and character education are some forms of fostering cultural changes in school environments, but Payne said she worries school curriculums rely too heavily on students to create change. Days chosen to celebrate LGBT people are often associated with days marking victimizations, disease and murder, Payne said. We need to give LGBT youth the idea that they have the ability to grow up with happy, healthy and whole lives. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014Sarah Hernandez / Alligator Leading LGBT researcher Elizabethe Payne speaks to a room of UF students and educators at a lecture held at Cymplify Central at 5402 NW Eighth Ave. for Gainesville Pride Days. ITS CIRCULATING ON SO CIAL MEDIA. PATRICK PINAKAlligator Staff Writerppinak@alligator.orgAs the Ebola epidemic unfolds, Internet users should be aware of scams, fake articles and links containing viruses circulating social media channels. book is an article citing an Ebola not true. Once users click on the link from Feednewz, a create-yourown-prank website, it alerts people theyve been pranked. But not everyone clicks the link before sharing, thus the frenzy. Theres a lot of stuff on the Internet thats not true, and its up to the individual to verify it themselves, said Andrew Selepak, director of UFs Masters of Arts in Mass Communication in social media. Otherwise, you kind of embarrass yourself by sharing something or spreading something that isnt true. Selepak said this phenomenon happens often during times of disasters. He said he commonly sees people sharing links to fake news stories on Facebook. Sadly enough, theres always going to be people that like to stir the pot or like to take advantage of the ignorance and goodwill of others, he said, and social media is simply allowing people to do it on a grander scale to a wider audience. One thing Internet users can do is research information for themselves, using websites like Snopes, Selepak said. Snopes currently has a list of the top 25 hottest urban legends, which currently includes a handful of Ebola-related articles. That website is really good for helping people kind of get through these rumors that are getting thrown around the Internet that arent true, Selepak said. UF biology sophomore Pam Inglett said she would have clicked on the link, just in case it were true. She said she doesnt think these practices are ethical. People shouldnt be tricked, the 19-year-old said.

Certainly, Ebola is on everyones mind, said UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes. Sikes said students need to remember the during this time of year, which is why everyone should be mindful of face-touching habits. We are working on general communications that will go out campuswide about viruses in general, she said. If there were an Ebola case in the UF community, UF would work with the Florida Department of Health to identify people who had contact with that individual. Then the department would determine if anyone needed to be monitored, isolated or potentially quarantined, and UF would assist in that process, Sikes said. The recent meningitis case is a good example of how UF and the health department worked together to conduct contact tracing, Sikes wrote in an email. Fedro Zazueta, associate corporate information Academic Technology and a professor in the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Dedeveloped ways to deal with virus outbreaks. scare back in 2009, the university had a general strategy to reduce contact among people.

GEMIMA ROSIER Alligator Contributing WriterFor a price that usually gets them one-third of an order of chili cheese fries, Krystal customers were able to purchase the classic Krystal hamburger and a small drink for 82 cents Tuesday in celebration of the oldest burger chain in the Southeasts 82nd anniversary. Employees placed trays of steaming burgers and fries in front of customers ranging from a tiny, blond toddler to a group of rowdy construction workers. The red, white and blue building at 7700 W. Newberry Road is speckled with six black-andwhite photos on one of its walls, each showcasing past Krystal locations. Gainesville native Terrald Bryant, 43, has been enjoying the mini square-shaped burgers since 1987, when the chain was exclusively known for its small sliders. At the time, there was a location that was walking distance from UFs campus, Bryant, a lawn technician, said. After the clubs and football games, everyone would go to Krystals, Bryant said. When Bryant was in high school, his footum. After, he and his friends would trek across the street to feast on the most popular item on the menu the Krystal. Bryant can still remember watching the employees place the square meat patties side by side on the large grill. He would order about 20 burgers at 25 cents each.

After participating in environmental education programs, the 19-year-old Santa Fe College engineering sophomore started getting more involved. And today, she is helping to host Santa Fes Campus Sustainability Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oak Grove. No matter how much we try to stay far away from sustainability, its always right down the corner, Owhoso said. Students can learn about the environment and ways to raise awareness at the event, which will include guest speakers, such as Steve Robitaille, the board president of Florida Defenders of the Environment. There will also be a public screening of Gimme Green, a documentary about the effects of human waste in the environment. Digital Media Technology program coordinator, Eric Flagg, will host a discussion with attendees afterward. Taking care of the environment doesnt require completely changing your lifestyle, said Vilma Fuentes, Santa Fes academic affairs assistant vice president. You can begin by taking small incremental steps, whether its recycling, or composting, or riding your bike to school or work thinking more in terms of economic viability, she said. You can take lots of small steps that can really make a big difference to the broader picture.Sante Fe to celebrate Sustainability Day with guest speakers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON North Koreas reclusive government abruptly freed an American man Tuesday, nearly six months after he was arrested on charges of leaving a Bible in a nightclub, but Pyongyang refused to hand over two other U.S. citizens who are still being held. There was no immediate explanation for the release of Jeffrey Fowle, who was quickly whisked to the U.S. territory of Guam before heading back to his wife and three children in Miamisburg, Ohio. Relations between Washington and Pyongyang, never warm, are at a particularly low point, and the U.S. has sought unsuccessfully for months to send a highlevel representative to North Korea to negotiate acquittals for all three men. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said Fowle was seen by doctors and appeared to be in good medical health. She declined to give more details about his release except to thank the government of Sweden, which has an embassy in Pyongyang, for its tireless efforts. Harf would not say whether any rectly with the North Koreans. Fowle, 56, arrived there on April 29 and was arrested in May for leaving a Bible at the nightclub. Christian evangelism is considered a crime in North Korea. He was awaiting trial the only one of the three Americans held by Pyongyang who had not been convicted of charges. The two others Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller were each sentenced to years in North Korean prisons after court trials that lasted no more than 90 minutes. The three Americans entered North Korea separately.

Republican-turnedDemocrat Charlie Crist and Republican Gov. Rick Scott, essentially tied in moments before the television cameras to come up with some of the most personal attacks leveled so far in what has already been an extremely negative campaign. Crist called Scott out of touch with regular Floridians, while Scott called Crist a divider who switched parties and policies to further his political career. What is he saying this year that he actually believes, whether its on taxes, education or abortion? Scott asked. As they debated the economy and who was responsible for the recovery, Scott contended that Crist, the son of a doctor, grew up rich and didnt know the struggles of saying Scott, who is now a multimillionaire after growing up poor, didnt care about the middle class and spent all his time in a private jet and seaside mansion. Crist used that line to stress the need to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, which Scott opposes because he argued it could prompt some businesses to pare back the number of jobs they offer. Scott said he did believe there should be some sort of minimum wage in place, but when asked how much it should be, he responded: How would I know? I mean, the private sector decides wages. They each took digs at the others past, with Crist attacking Scott over his time as the head of the hospital chain HCA/CoMedicare fraud. Crist repeated a line from one of his ads, saying Scott once invoked his Fifth Amendment right against selfincrimination while questioned about an unrelated civil lawsuit.Final Florida gubernatorial debate heated and personalAnd a Gimme Green documentary screeningCrist Scott

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 College football is a murky business. Any organizations that pull in so much tax-free revenue, have the universities and the communities that house them and have such ubiquitous control over its unpaid employees are bound to be caught up in some shady stuff. Florida State University is the most recent school with its hand caught in the cookie jar of college footballs corrupt politics. With legitimate, national news organizations like ESPN and The New York Times turning their gaze onto the university, many unwelcomed blemishes seem to be making their way into the national spotlight. FSU is being portrayed as a university with, at best, a football program whose ensured success takes precedence over everything else. In the most recent report from The New York Times, both the Tallahassee Police less-than-proactive approach to punishing football players for criminal activity. However, there seems to be one constant behind this, a singular source that appears to be attracting the full brunt of the national shame straight toward the year-old kid. Jameis Winstons story has evolved from portraying him as a prodigal savior, to a pariah, to a vindicated champion, to a bumbling fool and to a pariah once more. Hes been lambasted on TV, revered all the more locally as he continues to win and is turned into a meme on Twitter. #BlameJameis has emerged as a sort of mocking rallying cry one that FSU students have taken up ranted hate that has now broadened to the university as a whole. In some sense, this is a fair criticism. Its easy to squint your eyes at autographs, screamed obscenities; tools one would need to cast angry judgment on someindividually? Without the hysteria-ridden, hyperbolic 24-hour news cycle compounding stories of university-wide cover-ups of 19and 20-year-olds running around with BB guns, the moral outrage falls apart. What this really all comes down to is the most critical issue of the matter: the sexual assault charge against Winston. That was the genesis of everything that came after, the reason we scowl and not laugh when Winston stands on a table in the union and screams obscenities against women. This is not to say that the still ongoing investigation does not deserve attention quite the opposite, in fact. By comparing the sexual assault allegations with every other petty deviance that has gone on this year with Jameis Winston, it diminishes the weight of a sexual assault allegation. Discussing things like illegally signing his name on too many pieces of paper not only draws attention away from the assault charge, but also inevitably ends up trivializing it. In peoples haste to compound the evidence against Winston, and by extension the university, theyre burying the lede the endemic culture of rape and the way in which sexual assault cases have been so mishandled at FSU. And that is what gets to the core of the problem behind FSUs growing notoriety in the eyes of the nation. Weve reached a point where the football program, namely its star quarterback, is now charged with maintaining the universitys good name. His every action and subsequent reaction from both the local police force and the university is examined under the most scorching of microscopes and our need to join in on the damnation of an unpopular player and a now unpopular program lets incidents with BB guns get treated with the same kind of severity if they had been touting pistols on the quad. Corruption within big-time college athletics has happened before, and it is bound to happen again. The NCAA has always masqueraded its exploitation of student athletes under the guise of free education, and it is anything but news when universities protect the law. We pick our spots on our level of outrage when it comes to the skewed morality inherent in college athletics FSU just happens to be a prime target right now. This isnt to say that some of the systematic problems of the sanctity with which football gets treated in Tallahassee arent important. The problem of sexual assault, however, is now getting clouded behind a compounding of relatively inconsequential things like stealing soda from a restaurant. What people need to understand is that these two crimes dont compare, and lumping all of it under the same #BlameJameis Twitter tag deviates the conversation away from whats truly important. What matters is the mishandling of the sexual assault charge and what both the Tallahassee Police Department and FSU are doing to change the way they investigate these type of cases. Everything else is just noise. David Walker is the arts and culture editor for FSU News. A version of this column originally appeared on UWire.Blame Jameis misses the point UWire Its fall, yall. The season of pumpkin spice lattes, candy corn, pumpkin carving and a very occasional nip in the air after all, this is Florida has fully descended upon us. With this season, it seems every basic white girls wildest dreams are coming true. I, too, am a basic white girl who loves fall. Sometimes I the Pumpkin Harvest soap in my bathroom, which smells heavenly. However, I have a few autumn musings that dont fall nicely into this wanderlust season thats sprinkled with fake leaves and misted with all of the pumpkin scent one could ever want. At times, even the most basic girls sometimes just cant handle fall. With that in mind, here are some friendly suggestions for the fall season. First, it may be fall, but leggings are still not pants. One might treat them as pants, and you have every right to do so. Please, wear leggings if your heart desires. Just understand that they are not pants. Leggings are tight and stretchy and, on a good day, might double as yoga pants if youre lucky. On a bad day, they look like tights or fuzzy paint plastered over girls backsides. Leggings get a little better if one is wearing a relatively long shirt, but Im not sure the female species will look back on this fashion decision with fondness. Call me old-fashioned, but theres just something about seeing people from behind wearing leggings without a shirt of adequate length that the wearer. Second, in any SEC college town, fall means football. This year, it seems football also means tailgates waisted shorts that miss the short mark by about 5 miles and move into the Are you even wearing pants? territory instead. Theres no nice way to put it: Your butt hanging out of your shorts just isnt cute. I understand that this is college, and high-waisted shorts are a popular college trend. You probably have a nice butt, and even Meghan Trainor says shes bringing booty back in her new hit single, All About That Bass. However, those extra inches of padded skin dont make my list of things to see on gameday. Orange and blue, Albert and Alberta and thousands of fans screaming Go, Gators! all make the cut. Your butt does not. servation concerns skimpy Halloween costumes. Theyre old news, but theyre still hanging around or should I say, hanging off of their respective wearers, despite how stupid they are. Again, girls have every right to wear an itty-bitty costume if they want to. Theyre probably not all that different from clothes worn when going out on any other night of the week. However, its still silly. If you want to be a cat or Minnie Mouse or Superwoman, be those things, but dont be the scantily-clad version of them because you wont even look right. Minnie Mouse wears a red and white polka-dot dress, not black booty shorts and a polka-dot crop top. Fall is a fabulous season. Pinterest boards come to life. College students double as apple pickers, pumpkinpatch visitors and corn maze goers. Basic white girls everywhere are thriving in their natural habitats, but sometimes that thriving gets a little out of hand. College students are adults. We can all make our own decisions. Yet, in light of these three interesting fall trends, and as a basic white girl, I personally suggest a little more class and a little less Lindsay Alexander is a journalism sophomore.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9Colleen Wright / Alligator StaffHenna Hands STUDENTS CRESONIA HSIEHAlligator Contributing Writer Two UF students will present their work at a national sustainability conference in front of more than 1,000 students Sunday. Sustainability studies senior Alex Ahrenholz and environmental engineering senior Camille Mekwinski will present at the student summit portion of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education 2014 Convention & Expo in Portland, Oregon. Allison Vitt, outreach and communications coordinator for the UF ity is proud of the two 21-year-old This is a very big deal to have our students accepted to facilitate a workshop, Vitt said. There are only a few students selected from all the abstract submissions, and to have our very own UF student interns represented at the premier national conference for sustainability in higher ed is something were very proud of, she added. The students will present a onehour workshop titled A Hut Trend: Student to student engagement enabling sustainability, which will be one of only four workshops presented at the convention. The workshop will include activities, games and prizes for students attending the conference. The workshop will teach student leaders how to foster peer-topeer interactions, equip students with tools for creating commitment to sustainability among members and talk about ways in which new, sustainable social norms may be developed. Its exciting for the university to be present in kind of a bigger format than just like a small poster board, Ahrenholz said. Ahrenholz and Mekwinskis workshop will be based on their sustainability hut, a mobile, solarpaneled contraption used to teach students on campus about how to live environmentally friendly lives. Mekwinski and Ahrenholz to promote ecological living to students on campus. Were just teaching people that (interaction) is a better way to inform people about sustainability and sustainability principles than just information-based campaigns, Ahrenholz said. Mekwinksi said she is excited to be showcasing a workshop at the conference in front of her peers. Tyler Burkett, a UF chemical engineering junior, has visited the on-campus sustainability hut and participated in the activities that Ahrenholz and Mekwinski will be displaying Sunday. I thought it was really interesting, Burkett, 20, said. Burkett said she thinks the hut is important to inform students about sustainability. We can always do more, he said.UF Sustainability interns to present work at US conference THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK Cord cutters rejoiced last week after HBO and CBS announced plans to sell stand-alone streaming services, a move that cable and satellite television providers have resisted for years. Customers tired of paying big fees for hundreds of channels they never watch just to have access to a few favorite shows might be expected to start canceling cable service in HBO, add a network here and there why would anyone sign up now for cable? Well, dont sound the death knell for cable companies yet. Some would-be customers may balk when they see just how much paying a la carte actually costs. Stations that offer services a la carte will have to pay for marketing that the cable and satellite companies usually cover. Fewer eyeballs on live TV could mean less advertising revenue, since online ads are generally cheaper, and that will boost the networks cost of running the channel. And smooth streaming costs money: To avoid so-called throttling during peak evening viewing band distributors like Comcast and Verizon and paid up so that its streaming service would run at a higher bandwidth and work more smoothly. Those added costs might be passed on to customers. And for all those cable haters out there, sorry: Cutting the cord wont mean cutting out your cable provider. They often own some of your favorite channels (Comcast owns NBC Universal, parent of Bravo and USA) and in most areas, they are the gatekeepers to the Internet. Offering popular channels like HBO over streaming could actually help cable companies sell more expensive broadband services to customers. The cable business is evolving from mainly selling you a pay-TV package to mainly selling you a broadband Internet service, said FBR Research analyst Barton Crockett. Content companies and cable companies are evolving from being very worried about making their content available through Internet services to very excited about that. Its a way to sell their Internet and get people to pay for faster speeds. The growth in streaming services will appeal to a segment of consumers that the traditional pay-TV providers have a harder and harder time communicating with: the millennials and so called cord-nevers who havent viewed Pay TV as a compelling option until now, says MoffettNathanson partner Craig Moffett. In fact, HBO said its standalone HBO Go service is largely aimed at the 10 million U.S. households that have broadband Internet service but do not pay for TV. So as more channels start to offer a la carte services, cable providers will shift to focus on their broadband services, Moffett thinks. Cable companies will become increasingly reliant on broadband and gradually evolve their business models to be less and less video-centric and more broadband-centric over time, he said. That leaves satellite pay-TV companies like DirecTV and Dish Network Inc., which have no broadband capability as the odd man out, he said.Hold up, cord cutters: Cables here to stay THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON For Amerwas more than just a skilled artist who helped give them a dose of into his dresses, beaded gowns and pantsuits. He was also a friend to some of them. From the teal pantsuit Hillary Rodham Clinton wore when she was sworn in as a U.S. senator to a red gown for Nancy Reagan to a gray suit still hanging in Laura Bushs closet, de la Renta endeared himself to some of the most scrutinized women in the world, A-list developing a keen sense of what they wanted and needed out of their clothes. De la Renta died late Monday at age 82. Laura Bush and former President George W. Bush mourned the loss of our dear friend. Clinton said her entire family, including former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, would miss the designers warmth and friendship. The familys statement recalled many happy times shared with de la Renta and his widow, Annette, especially those spent in his beloved Dominican Republic. Nancy Reagan said de la Renta was a fashion legend, as well as her friend of nearly 50 years. They knew he understood them, made them feel comfortable, said Anita McBride, who was Laura Bushs chief of staff in the White House. Mrs. Bush always said he knew what women needed to look and feel beautiful. Michelle Obama, for her part, preferred the work of up-and-coming designers and chose the thenunknown Jason Wu to design both of her inaugural ball gowns. It took years for her to wear more established designers, such as Carolina Herrera and de la Renta. He had criticized her several years earlier for not wearing an American label to a 2011 state dinner for the president of China. Less than two weeks before the famed designers death, Mrs. Obama donned a de la Renta desleeveless black dress, with royal blue and gold appliques from neckline to hemline, at a reception that followed a fashion education workshop she held for design students at the White House. Oscar de la Renta was a pioneer and a visionary who helped generations of women embrace their most Tuesday. clothed their daughters, too.de la Renta This is a very big deal to have our students accepted to facilitate a workshop.outreach and communications coordinator

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG 2015 linebacker recruit decommits from FloridaFour-star recruit Jerome Baker the No. 5 outside linebacker in commitment from Florida to Ohio State on Tuesday.Soccer falls in polls UF mens golf senior J.D. Tomlinson had a career-best outing in Orlando. Read the story on Page 14. GRAHAM HACKAlligator Writer@graham_hack24Becky Burleighs message to her team this week was simple: remember who you are. After starting their Southeastern Conference schedule a perfect 6-0, the No. 8 Gators (11-4, 6-2 SEC) had a dismal weekend, losing games at South Carolina and Kentucky both unranked teams. Both matches were uncharacteristic for Florida, a team that has played with patience and maturity all season, especially in potential letdown games. The UF coach believes the issues that resulted in both losses what has made the Gators so successful this season. I think it was just us not quite being in sync, Burleigh said, and I think the good news about that is I think theres some stuff Its just a matter of more getting back to our basics, getting back to what we do best, because what we do best, its a team game for us. Its much more of a collective effort. Playing as a team is what has made the Gators so dangerous this season. Twelve different Gator players have scored the teams 34 goals, making attacks tough to defend for opponents. But over the weekend especially against Kentucky, Florida since Sept. 12 Burleigh said the players began to get frustrated and impatient, and instead of allowing the offense to come to them, they started trying to make plays individually. We all have to trust one another that if we give a ball were gonna get it. ... We just have to Jordan McPherson / Alligator Staff Burleigh wants Florida soccer team to remember who they areOTEROS OPINIONComing into the 2014 season, UF volleyball coach Mary Wise said Florida was looking to become more dominant on defense. Now, however, I wouldnt say Florida is completely dominating on the defensive end. The Gators are 57th in the nation in blocks per set (2.43) and 301st in digs per set (12.38). So why is Wise not rotating her defensive specialists around more to create a bigger defensive presence? With three seniors libero Holly Pole and defensive specialists Taylor Unroe and Madrience in the back row, so its understandable why those three receive most of the playing time. that those three seniors provide, there are still three defensive specialists Lindsey Rogers, Sam Dubiel and Nikki ORourke that arent playing as much who are just as capable of playing at the level Unroe and Monserez are playing. So why is Wise choosing to stick so closely to the seniors? My editor posed this question to me the other day. Its a fair question. Human nature says that we want to know why we cant see what these other players are capable of. So, Ill give you my slightly complicated response. I think Wise has played the three seniors so much not just because they have a wealth freshmen prepared for collegiate volleyball is a big feat. At the beginning of the season, freshmen outside hitter Carli Snyder and middle blocker Rhamat Alhassan continued to tell reporters how much faster the speed of the game is and theyve both seen ample playing time. If it was fast for them and theyve already appeared in the starting lineup, then how be everywhere at all times? Also, Dubiel the defensive specialist shes ever seen has been recovering from a strained abdominal muscle; understandably shes only played in a total of two sets because of it. To add, it was incredibly useful to hold UF not utilizing back-row depth MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Staff Writer@Morgan_MoriartyFlorida fans get a break from the downward spiral that is the 2014 season thanks to a bye this weekend.

16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2014 BASKETBALL ERICA A. HERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writer@EricaAlyssaChris Chiozza is just one of many new faces to the Gators 17man 2014-2015 mens basketball roster. The Tennessee native is not the tallest nor the heaviest on the team the freshman point guard weighs in at 168 pounds and is exactly 6-feet tall but Chiozza said hes working on getting his weight up to 175 pounds by the start of the season. He said hes gained 10 pounds since hes arrived at UF. During his senior year at his Memphis (Tenn.) White Station High School, Chiozza averaged 15 points and eight assists per game. Ranked No. 45 in the country by Rivals.com, Chiozza also received offers to play at Auburn, U Mass, Memphis, Ohio State, Richmond and Tennessee. Here are six questions for the Florida freshman. 1.) Who is your closest friend on the team? Devin Robinson, I knew him before we got here. We met each other at camps in the summer of junior year and we were both getting recruited by Florida so we used to talk about thinking about coming here. And I had committed before him so then once I committed he was just like Well I might as well go there. So we knew each other our whole senior year and we got here together in the summer and we were roommates. 2.) Has anyone stood out to you during off-season workouts as taking on more of a leadership role? Jon Horford, hes a really good leader. Hes always talking and just telling people where to be at all times. Hes one of the more experienced people on the team even though he hasnt been here, hes been in college in Michigan, hes a real nice leader. I look up to him a lot. 3.) Hows your ball handling? I work on that, you know, you still got to work on that. Ive always kind of been a better ball handler so I dont work on it as ly still work on it. 4.) Whats your favorite Gainesville restaurant? Mi Apa. I get some empanadas. I try to switch it up, I dont really ever get the same thing twice, except for empanadas, I start off with those. 5.) Whats your all-time favorite movie? Space Jam. Michael Jordan and cartoons: mix them together and its the perfect movie. 6.) How have you enjoyed living in Gainesville so far? Its lovely, I like the weatherits a lot better than Memphis. Its just a great environment. Just people knowing who you are when you get off campus. Just great fans. I like it already.Six questions with freshman point guard Chris ChiozzaKan Li / Alligator StaffUF freshman point guard Chris Chiozza speaks with Kevin Brockway of the Gainesville Sun during the Florida mens basketball team media day on Oct. 15 in the basketball practice facility.
