Bradshaw Michael Steele, 22, secretly took a video of himself having sex with a woman he had been dating in March 2017, according to an arrest report. In October, two months after the couple had broken up, he uploaded the video, as well as nude photos showing the womans face, to an online forum with members of his fraternity, GPD said. Police said the video was taken without the womans permission or knowledge, and she sent him the nude photos Police said Steele shared the video knowing it would degrade the woman, and members of his fraternity recognized her. Steele was arrested in his apartment at 2 p.m. on charges of sexual cyber harassment, video voyeurism and video voyeurism dissemination. He was released from Alachua County Jail at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on a $50,000 bond. Steele could not be reached for comment.

By Elliott NasbyAlligator Staff WriterUF Levin College of Law students had the lowest passing rate among Florida law school students who took the most recent bar exam, according to results released by the Florida Supreme Court on Monday. All law students need to pass the bar exam to practice as an attorney in Florida. Of the 22 UF law students who took the exam over two days in February, only seven passed a rate of 31.8 percent. The results are utterly unacceptable given the caliber of our students and the quality of law school, wrote in a statement Monday. Efforts by the school to prepare students college is considering a different approach for future exams, Rosenbury said. Whitney Smith, a spokesperson for the law school, said the college and its faculty will consider intervening more in the courses students are taking. In an email to law students, Rosenbury said the school will implement a bar preparation program for students during the three years they are at UF and consider controlling which classes students take. Given these shocking and disheartening results, we are rethinking this approach and Rosenbury said in an email. All third-year law students will be required to submit a study plan and complete a free diagnostic exam before they graduate, according to the email. Administration will also provide risk of failing. Law students from Florida schools had an average passing rate of 53.4 percent. Florida International University students had the highest passing rate at 85 percent. The passing rate for students from Florida State Universitys law school was 76.7 percent. Patrick Brathwaite, a second-year UF law student, hasnt taken the bar exam yet but said the exam was a wake-up call for both the students and school. @_ElohEl enasby@alligator.orgUF law students score lowest in the state on bar exam

This is the last Accent show of the semester. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m., and the event will begin at 8 p.m. Kantor is being paid $20,000 to speak, Buchanan said. The event was announced the same day Kantor and a team of reporters won a Pulitzer Prize for their reporting on Weinstein, reintroducing the #MeToo movement, which was founded by Tarana Burke. I hope students will be impressed by Jodis courage and that journalism students will be emboldened to push the envelopes in their careers, as she has, she said. Accent chose Kantor not only for her involvement in the #MeToo movement but also for her coverage of womens issues throughout her career, Buchanan said. Matthew Rosenthal, a UF industrial and systems engineering junior, said he was surprised to see a journalist chosen. He said its nice to see a speaker thats relevant to the news today. Im just excited shes coming and to hear somebody thats been involved in the #MeToo movement because she was one of the ones to bring this out of the darkness into the public sphere, the 21-year-old said. @Christina_M18 cmorales@alligator.orgNew York Times reporter Jodi Kantor is next Accent speaker2017-18 Accent SpeakersOct. 11Kal Penn (paid $65,000) Oct. 24 R.L.

By Jessica GilesAlligator Staff WriterJessica Giessman threw her arms around Viper, a yellow Labrador retriever, and looked up at a UF police Can I have him? she asked. The UF criminology sophomore was missing her two German shepherds, so when she heard UFPD would bring the K-9 unit outside Newell Hall for the one-year anniversary event, she cleared her schedule. Giessman and about 3,000 other students gathered at Newell Hall on Tuesday to celebrate the one year anniversary since its redesign, said Michael Murphy, chair of the Newell Hall Advisory Board. The project cost $16.6 million, according to Alligator archives. Student Government gave out more than 600 T-shirts and about $1,600 worth of coffee from Au Bon Pain. I think its been a great vicinity for people to really do a new type of studying, Murphy said. It sparks creativity. The event was meant to celebrate the anniversary of the renovated building without being intrusive to those studying inside, he said. We wanted to make sure that were kind of fueling the students to study but also at the same time celebrating something thats been really great, he said. Giessman didnt want to miss an opportunity to celebrate her favorite study space. The 19-year-old said her favorite sits on the couches and watches the light stream in from the windows.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 ALLIGATOR 7When it comes to making a classic album, there are plenty of more important factors to consider than its cover artwork. Still, theres a good reason why album art is a project. Not only does it make the scale of the creation more tangible for our visual minds, but when handled well, the perfect imaging can enhance our experience with the music as well as our overall appreciation of it. One of the best things about the artwork is that theres no singular way to design a solid cover, even for two albums with similar sonics. Songs from A$AP Mobs Cozy Tapes, Vol. 1 and Migos Culture II ing trap beats and infectious energy, yet their respective artworks couldnt be more different: a beaming, infantile A$AP Yams three grown men sporting gold chains and jet-black suits. Still, both covers encapsulate the overarching themes of the actual albums, as A$AP pays tribute to their fallen founding member, and Migos express landscape in all their glory. Personally, many of my favorite covers have been just as varied although with each of them, Im able to tie the image to ingrained into my memory. With Childish Gambinos awe-inspiring Awaken, My Love!, that moment occurred before Id even seen the cover art, instead taking place when he premiered the album at the Pharos concert in Joshua Tree a few When it comes to Jhen Aikos ethereal Souled Out album cover, that pivotal moment came long after Id heard the mubrought one of the songs to life for myself in high school. The sunshine that beams from the heavens onto Jhens elevated the song Eternal Sunshine from the album, which a close friend and I decided to perform at a coffee house hosted by our schools arts program. It doesnt take a out that the original version was better more so my fault on the piano than my friends singing ability, as I stumbled on a few chords near the end but still, thinking about our live rendition always puts a smile on my face, the memory transposed with the feeling given off by Souled Outs beautiful artwork. Its often a bad sign when the albums cover is more impressive than the music, but when theyre complimentary, it only makes the end product that much more captivating. So this week, kudos to Jessie Reyez and Daniel Caesar for not only formlaboration, but for packaging it behind a snapshot that perfectly sums up the songs light, airy essence. Why Im Smiling: Jessie Reyez ft. Daniel Caesar: Figures, a Reprise How much did I know about Jessie Reyez before this song? I didnt realize Figures, a Reprise was actually a reProbably a little late to the party, but Ill be paying much more attention to the Canadian singer going forward after hearing to Caesars honeylike crooning. Why Im Shaking My Head: Fabulous turns himself into police after allegedly punching Emily B seven times. Knocking out two of her teeth shouldnt need much explanation. Why Im Hopeful For the Future: Kali Uchis Isolation (April 6) In terms of songs that only grow more infectious with each listen, Kali Uchis After the Storm is easily the strongest choice since GoldLink gifted the culture with Crew in 2016. This column originally ran in Daily Trojan. Music matters most, but a classic cover completes the projectU-WireMy cursor hovered over the send button after I typed my pitch for a column about feminism. Id read over the email half a dozen times, but I just couldnt get myself to click. myself, wondering if my lack of gender studies or womens history classes should keep me from writing about feminism every week. Id had good intentions I owned Betty Friedans Gays Bad Feminist, but I hadnt yet gotten around to reading them. Maybe I should write about something else, I thought, still hovering. people like it? After spending my senior Fall writing about hookup culture and, more importantly, Midtown culture, this jump to what I considered a serious and at times sad subject was not a small one. I didnt want to be a downer. Maybe I should just wait until after college to start being so political, I wondered. But for some reason, on that day in early January, I clicked send anyway. Since that day, Ive learned more about feminism by writing about feminism than I ever thought I could.

In this line, it felt like she was talking to me. As I worried my columns would sound more like complaints, Valenti assured me naming the problem sexism doesnt make us victims.

Harvey Weinstein and the likes were taken down by strong reporters and stronger women who broke their silences. The Times Up Legal Defense Fund raised more than $20 million for women in several industries to harassment cases. Incredible things have happened in the past year, but there is so much work left to be done. We can celebrate the women at the forefronts of these movements, while we continue to bring awareness to the issues that havent gotten the Hollywood treatment. To name a few, rape culture, employment discrimination and wage gaps, all of which are more prominent for women of color than white women, still deserve our attention, our efforts and our voices. In writing this column, I learned feminism is about so much more than wanting feminism is nothing without intersectionality that is, understanding how race, class, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender identity and disabilities affect the way women and nonbinary people experience discrimination. If only some of us are inching toward column for The Alligator, I remembered the I know the answer: No. I know there are countless women who know more about feminism than I ever will, and I know they may have written better pieces than I have. But if I waited until I felt probably never write about it at all. We cant let our fears of not being good enough keep us from trying. We cant wait until we feel ready to change the world to If youre postponing activism until you You wont look back; youll learn as you learning. Carly Breit is a UF journalism senior.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 Florida Got Soul:Book signing and concert recap (Pg. 10)The Struts: The UK rock band will headline at High Dive (Pg. 9)By Emma WitmerAvenue WriterLocal T-shirt company Always True Collective returns this weekend with a one-day art show and party with live local music and live T-shirt printing. The No Signal show will be held from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday at the Always True headquarters. Always True Collective is based out of a house located at 124 SW 23rd St. Tickets for the event are available through alwaystrue. co for $10 in advance and for $12 at the door, and they include all you can drink for those 21 and over. As part of #UNLITTER, a movement dedicated to picking up trash and being more aware of the environment, Always True will enter win free merchandise. No Signal and Always True shirts. Always True clothing and merchandise will be available out of the basement. Guests can bring in a garment to be printed with the event logo for $3. Come enjoy it. Check out our work. Check out the clothes. Bring a T-shirt; get it screenprinted on. Bring a couple dollars; get some tacos. Bring your ears; hear some music, Kevin Masaro of Always True said. The event will also feature performances from several local artists: Nick Chase from 9:30 to 10 p.m., King Complex from 10 to 11 p.m., The Hails from 11 p.m. to 12 a.m., NO1 from 12 to 12:30 a.m., Victoria Vicary from 12:20 to 12:30 a.m., Jay Cango from 12:45 to 1 a.m. and Ruckus Royal from 1:10 to 1:30 a.m. Each act will perform a brief outdoor set in the backyard. After a trip to New York City in September, Masaro said he and Drew Howard were inspired by different pop-up art galleries in the city. Thats when we really started talking about pop-ups and art shows and stuff like that. That idea simmered and boiled, and then we were like, lets do it, Masaro said. The idea of No Signal represents a departure from Always Trues heavy-handed social media presence. As Howard and Masaro of Always True began to focus inward, they said the art seemed to come naturally. No Signal, I think, is kind of just putting more of a focus on the individual people and the actual interaction with the people instead of just clothes and stuff on social media. Its just more of the one-on-one conversation, because thats what really matters, Masaro said. The collection includes hand-painted items including jackets, jeans, canvas, shoes and chairs. All of the items on display are also for sale. Some of these jackets have been being worked on for over a year, Masaro said. They have layers and layers and layers and layers and layers and layers of paint, Howard added. Its fabric paint, acrylic paint, spray paint. Every type of paint you can think of is in some sort of way put on these jackets.WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 Keep up with the Avenue on Twitter. Tweet us @TheFloridaAve. By Gabriella PaulAvenue Writer Although UF College of Medicine Assistant Professor Terrie Vasilopoulos has a doctorate in psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience, some would say she also has a masters in mixology. Sip on Vasilopoulos very own hand-brewed Hefeweizen, along with your choice of about 360 other craft brews at the seventh annual Hogtown Craft Beer Festival from 1 to 5 p.m. April 21 at the Alachua County Fairgrounds. That is, if you were one of the 1,700 people to buy a festival ticket online before it sold out around 8 p.m. Monday. Hogtown Brewers homebrew club, established in 1985, is a voluna dual mission: to organize events celebrating home-brewed craft beer for its members and the Gainesville community, but also to raise money for local charities year-round during these events. Vasilopoulos joined Hogtown Brewers four years ago after moving from Illinois with her husband, Jonathon Freedman, who has been homebrewing for about 10 years, she said. But when they left Illinois, they also left their homebrew club in Chicago. when we moved to Gainesville was Google if there was a homebrew club so we could join it, she said. ers, the couple quickly joined. Now Vasilopoulos is serving as the lead organizer for the 2018 festival. What we like to call it is that Im the head disorganizer for the beer festival. However, there are a lot of moving parts outside of communicating with the more than 100 breweries and six other homebrew clubs attending, she said. Theres pitching tents, grabbing water, securing a site, ensuring food and booking live music. We organize everything from top to bottom, even though were an all-volunteer organization, she said. In fact, Hogtown Brewers is setting up at the event, and six of its own members are serving its handcrafted beer, including Vasilopoulos Hefeweizen and Hard Cider and Freedmans India Red Ale and India Red Saison on Saturday. She said between the two of them, they have already brewed more than 35 gallons in the last month for the festival. Vasilopoulos said to look out for all nine of the Hogtown brews Saturday: El Jefe, a wheat hefeweizen; Hunt for Red India Pale Ale, a hoppy India Red Ale; Hunt for Red India Pale Saison, a Belgian India Red Saison; Manha Manha, a sour guanbana gose; Old Kentucky, a sessionable Kentucky Common; Patience is a Virtue, a cider; Professor Kauph E. Dunkel, a specialty Coffee Dunkel and two others, according to the events mobile phone application. For a live feed on festival favorites and a complete list of the 360 offered brews, guests are encouraged to download the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival application, available on both the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. Although other members have organized the festival in the past, Vasilopoulos said throughout the years she has witnessed how the original beer and food-pairing event has grown into a festival of its own. Tickets sales, at around 1,300 to 1,500 in years past, have grown to a record high of 1,700 this year, Vasilopoulos said. Although the event has always had live music, this year she said, We have a little bit bigger names, especially for Gainesville. Scuttered the Bruce and Whale Feral will be rotating on the main beer pavilion, while The Dozenaires will roam and play throughout the venue at the event. Celebrating craft beer brings Gainesville residents from all walks of life to share a drink and cheers to life. And Christine Denny, UF alumna and full-time president of First Magnitude Brewing Company, couldnt agree more. She said the brewery has been honored to contribute to the event for the past three years, but the local brewery has recently worked closely with Vasilopoulos outside of the event as well. In fact, Vasilopoulos awardwinning English Mild homebrew, Shes A Mild One, was brewed on the First Magnitude brewing system and is still on tap today.

Early in their career, The Struts had the opportunity to perform with their idols. Before the release of their debut album, they opened for The Rolling Stones in Paris. The band was also chosen to play as the supfour performances. The Struts is composed of lead vocalist Luke Spiller, bassist and vocalist Jed Elliott, drummer Gethin Davies and guitarist Slack. At 17 or 18 years old in an effort to avoid going to college, Slack said he and Spiller formed a band. We call ourselves The Struts because he strutted around a lot when we used to rehearse, just the two of us, Slack said. How did Slack know he and Spiller would have the chops to pull off a rock band? He had Spiller sing Far Far Away by Slade. That was all the assurance he needed. I said, f---, that guy can sing!, he said. toured in the United States, a trip Slack now says marked the moment he knew The Struts were here to stay. Coming to America was a pretty big milestone for us, Slack said. At the time, things werent going so well in the U.K., and it was quite a last shot.

10 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018By Natu TwehAvenue ContributorSeven years ago, John Capouya discovered a great deal of his favorite soul artists came from Florida. Capouya, a journalism and writing associate professor at the University of Tampa and a teacher Program, held a presentation and is titled Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band. To a packed room of about 40, he gave details on his journey and discoveries in Florida. By playing memorable songs from various soul artists, he managed to captivate the audience and create interaction among everyone. This is a soul music capital that deserves to be recognized, Capouya said. I try to make that case in this book. From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band, he dug up as much information as he possibly could about Floridas soul hisof The Twist resides in Tampa, and found Bobby Purify of James & Bobby Purify was not actually named that. There were two Bobbys, both with different names who took on the mantle of Bobby Purify. Capouya also discovered Florida was a hotspot for talent between the 1940s and 1980s beartists in his book were alumni the most prestigious and rigorous ists such as Willie Clarke developed their sound and techniques Florida was the most urban state after World War II, and this led to the establishment of numerous nightclubs and venues for both white and black audiences. The amount of venues gave black musicians the chance to tour across the state for months and make steady money. This strip of venues was known as the Chitlin Circuit, and Florida boasted the largest strip of venues aside from Texas. One venue at the time was the Two Spot in Jacksonville, which could hold up to 2,000 people. an important role in Florida soul by adding interesting counts and rhythms to an already diverse Little Beaver, played his guitar with the inspired Latin rhythms On the 1971 Betty Wright song a chorded guitar riff that was pattern that can be found in salsa, conga and other Latin genres. These factors that helped establish the level of talent in Florida also helped to keep Florida soul out of the limelight. Unlike cities and record labels that had a phis, Florida soul did not have a distinct sound. Floridian artists also found their success outside the state. Ray Charles and Sam & Dave both had greatest successes outside of Florida, but they never forgot their training and Florida heritage. Its to our advantage as listeners but to our disadvantage that no one could pinpoint one city sound, Capouya said. ing Friday, a show was held at the Boxcar in Depot Park on Saturday night to commemorate Capouyas book and Florida soul. Little Jake & the Soul Searchers performed. pillar in the soul community, has been performing since the 1950s; to perform at the University of Floridas football homecoming Gator Growl event in 1960 to an integrated crowd. The only way we would be able to play is if our people could straight years after, we sold out every show at every sorority and fraternity house. The performance at the Boxcar was electrifying, as the friendly environment led everyone to sing and dance to the sounds coming from the Soul Searchers. noring the hot air that kept getting in his performances, and nothing demonstrated that better than the thick beads of sweat dripping from his forehead. sents the enduring legacy of soul music into the 21st century. There are some who still perform soul music today, and there are others soul artists of the past. Toronto-rapper Drake sampled Timmy Thomas 1972 Why Cant We Live Together in his song dio album Views. Chance The Rappers Favorite Song, from samples Betty Wrights Clean Up Woman. Soul is alive in countless ways, and in the state of Florida it does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Soul is the beginning of lots of music, and I think it is an honor that someone decided to publish a book on its history in Florida, Florida Soul: From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band can be purchased at online retailers such as and Capouya hosts Florida Soul book signing, concert MUSIC Photo by Natu TwehLittle Jake & the Soul Searches performed at the Boxcar in Depot Park after the presentation and signing.

Florida quarterback Jake Allen announced on Tuesday that he intends to transfer. Allen, a freshman this past season, did not appear in a game for UF in 2017. GATORS KICK OFF SEC TOURNAMENT TODAYFlorida's women's golf team is competing in the SEC Tournament in Birmingham, Alabama, this week. The event begins today and runs through Sunday. UF is the defending the conference champion, winning last year's tournament by 13 strokes. The Gators have won nine total SEC titles in program history. Follow us for updatesFor updates on UF athletics, follow us on Twitter at @alligatorSports or online at, APRIL 18, 2018 Justin AhlumSports WriterNo. 1 Florida (32-7, 12-3 SEC) fell to Jacksonville 8-4 on Tuesday night, ending UFs nine-game home winning streak and snapping a fourgame winning streak overall. Weve gotta clean up some mistakes, coach Kevin OSullivan said. The Dolphins 3-4-5 hitters were the Achilles' heel of the Gators pitching staff. Shortstop Scott Dubrule, third baseman Angel Camacho la who were all hitting over .300 before Tuesday nights game torched UF in the batters box. The trio went a combined off the bat of Cassala. Cassala also iced the game with a twoer Nick Horvath in the seventh inning. from JU, Florida struggled to against Jacksonville (25-13, 6-3 A-Sun). Freshman Jack Leftwich got the starting nod for the Gators, giving up three runs on two hits, three walks and three strikeouts in 3.1 innings of work. OSullivan said Leftwich was on a pitch count to preserve him for UFs weekend series against Kentucky. Austin Langworthy, Horvath, Hunter McMullen and Connor Churchill also took the mound in relief on Tuesday night. Floridas relievers gave up a and managed to strike out only three JU batters. The decision to go with Langworthy in the fourth inning, who has seen very limited action on the hill this season, was because of the contrast between him and Leftwich. (Leftwich) is throwing 92, 94, and youve got a lefty (in Langworthy) throwing 80 to 82 and low 70s offspeed, OSullivan said. We thought Gators' winning streak snapped after bullpen sputters I arrived, stepped out of my dads Nissan Sentra and inhaled the scent of high expectations. Grill smoke and the aroma of fresh off an opening-day victory, tailgated in the parking lot. A few hundred feet away, the thenFlorida Marlins were preparing to play the then-Montreal Expos in what was three-game series to open the season, and not the Marlins had just won the World Series.

By Tyler NettunoSports Writer With the Gators 18-6 victory over Marquette on Saturday, UF lacrosse coach Amanda OLeary said that her players are still focused heading into its longest road stretch of the season. Any time you can get a win in this league, its important, she said. Florida (11-3, 6-0 Big East) has won 28 straight conference matchups and will take on Cincinnati, who has lost its last six games, at noon today. The Gators have won all four of their matchups against the Bearcats, including a 19-2 victory last April. Cincinnati (6-7, 0-6 Big East) hasnt won a game since its 1711 victory against Campbell on March 8. It has been a season to forget for the Bearcats. After beginning the year 6-1, they have collapsed since conference play began. nati will play this season. Though the Bearcats appear to be overmatched against the No. 9 Gators, they still have some ofput it. Cincinnatis scoring attack is led by a pair of sophomores: attacker Monica Borzillo and midThe duo has combined for 66 of the teams 159 goals this season. We have our work cut out for us on the defensive end, OLeary said. In goal for the Bearcats will be junior Giuliana Durso. She has made 132 saves this year for a save percentage of .439. Floridas high-powered offense will challenge Durso. The Gators attack is tied for 10th in the country, averaging 16 goals per game.

The freshman has been a defensive force for the Gators all year, and she leads the team in draw controls with 72. She will likely play a large role in Floridas defensive game plan against Cincinnati, as she and the rest of the Gators defense will atford in check. Heading out on a 3,700-mile road trip, OLeary knows that all for the team. However, she believes that it will prove valuable in the long run, especially for the teams younger contributors. Itll be a challenge for us, she said. I think its a great learning experience for our players. @TylerNettuno WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15 LACROSSEFloridas two-game road trip begins today in CincinnatiEmma Green / Alligator Staff Wednesday, April 18Womens Golf @ SEC Tournament, All Day Lacrosse @ Cincinnati, Noon, Bearcats TV Softball vs. Florida A&M, 6 p.m., SEC Network + Thursday, April 19Womens Golf @ SEC Tournament, All Day Baseball @ Kentucky, 7 p.m., SEC Network Friday, April 20Womens Golf @ SEC Tournament, All Day Womens Tennis @ SEC Tournament, 9 a.m. Gymnastics @ NCAA Championships, 7 p.m., ESPNU Softball @ Mississippi State, 7 p.m., SEC Network + Baseball @ Kentucky, 7:30 p.m., SEC NetworkSaturday, April 21Womens Golf @ SEC Tournament, All Day *Womens Tennis @ SEC Tournament, 10 a.m. Baseball @ Kentucky, 1 p.m., SEC Network + Lacrosse @ Denver, 2 p.m., Altitude Softball @ Mississippi State, 2 p.m., SEC Network + *Gymnastics @ NCAA Championships, TBD, ESPNU Sunday, April 22Womens Golf @ SEC Tournament, All Day Softball @ Mississippi State, 1 p.m., SEC Network + *Womens Tennis @ SEC Tournament, 2:30 p.m., SEC Network = If NecessaryTHIS WEEK IN UF SPORTS Alan Alvarez / Alligator Staff


16 ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2018 tion to baseball, and while I grew up watching Florida football with my dad, himself a UF alum, I never knew the players or followed the team. Suddenly that changed. I never really asked why until college when I started working at The Alligator, where Ive written several columns about how sports are trivial compared to real problems like cancer or war or racial injustice. I still stand by those thoughts, but with my time at The Alligator ending next week, I wanted to try and explain why even though there are times to put sports aside and even ing to be contrived and meaningless I chose to write about them in the The answer starts with a fancy philosophical term called metaphysics. My apologies to any philosophy professors/majors who read this because surely my explanation will fall short, but metaphysics basically tries to make sense of reality. It asks questions about principles and existence, and it has implications in sports. Thats because theres a fundamental metaphysical question related to sports: Are human beings, for some reason, drawn to competition as part of our nature? And I believe the answer to that question is a clear yes. Whether the ancient Greek olympics, the Roman gladiators or todays NFL, humans seem to generally be drawn to competition as a distraction. There are other forms of distraction to be sure one of my best friends, for example, prefers being entertained by esports and Dungeons and Dragons but sports are a classic way to escape from our everyday lives and momentarily bask in pure emotion. Which, like sleeping or communicating, is something most humans need to do. Something else humans generally need are relationships. Sports help build them. My dad and I still bond to this day over Florida football and Marlins baseball, even if we cant watch games together. And are there other ways to forge relationships? Of course. But sports are an easy, passive way to do so. surely sports consumption since I started writing about them ironic, I know but its not too hard to when my idea of a fun Friday night was schlepping over to Marlins Park to watch a game with my fellow baseball-loving friend. Wed watch the game. Talk about the game. When our team played poorly, it left us with our heads hung feeling defeated, even though wed done nothing ourselves. When our team did well, wed leave feeling a rush of ecstasy. And when the team experienced sustained success, it made our lives feel a little better. Notice a common word in all three of those instances? Yes, feeling thats what sports offer. And few other parts of our daily lives can. Ethan Bauer is a sports writer.

The junior from Moorpark, California, has reached base in every game this season, bringing her career mark to 163 of 170 games. Meanwhile, Florida has been led In the circle by junior pitcher Kelly Barnhill. The Marietta, Georgia, native was selected as this weeks SEC Pitcher of the Week for the ninth time in her career and the fourth time this season. Barnhill (19-1) limited the Gamecocks offense to a pair of hits and one run over a 14-inning stretch this past weekend. She also logged her ninth shutout of the season and the 28th of her career with 21 strikeouts in the two contests. The Rattlers will most likely depend on Kyaira Brown. The sophomore is one of three pitchers on the team but has the most experience overall in the circle. Brown (11-9) holds an ERA of 2.80 with 92 strikeouts and 79 runs allowed. Weve got to be on top of our A-game, Walton said. Everybody that weve played midweek has come at us with everything theyve got and I expect nothing less from them (Wednesday). @faiello_mari SOFTBALL, from pg. 14Lorenz has reached base in every gameAlan Alvarez / Alligator StaffFlorida pitcher Kelly Barnhill is 19-1 this season and was recently selected as SEC Pitcher of the Week. maybe he could get away with an inning or two which obviously didnt work out. On offense, not much happened for Florida other than a solo home run from right tom of the second. After that, Daltons bat went cold, stranding more than half of the 13 Gators runners left on base. Second baseman Blake Reese and third baseman Jonathan India drove in runs choices. India extended his hitting streak to 24 games with an RBI double to left, plating the last run of the game for Florida. He went 2-for-4 and average. Im really not trying to think about (the hitting streak), he said. Id rather win as a team and succeed as a player. Florida will now pack its bags and head to Lexington as the Kentucky Wildcats will host the Gators for a threegame series starting Thursday. I do think this weekOSullivan said. Theyre always very good offensively in their own ballpark and the weather is not gonna be kind to us again.
