Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe, City Manager Anthony Lyons and Gainesville Polices (GPD) Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) coordinator Will Halvosa attended the City Leadership to Reduce the Use of Jails Technical Assistance initiative, which is one of the NLCs Mayors Institute initiatives. The presentation, led by Poe, discussed the wide gaps among races regarding poverty, education, health care and interaction with the justice system and how the justice system addresses first time offenders and high utilizers. The discussion covered diversion programs that Gainesville has successfully used to decrease arrests and recidivism for all residents, but specifically for residents of color, the exploration of whether youth diversion may result in decreased adult arrests in the future and the best use of limited mayoral authority to support diversion. One of this years objectives for the Mayors Institute is to continue to engage mayors as champions to reduce jail use and provide a platform for problem-solving and strategy development discussions among city leaders and with national experts.

During the more than 11 hours of questioning by Broward Sheriff's Detective John Curcio, Cruz usually answered in short sentences or nodded yes or no, speaking so softly that the detective repeatedly told him to speak up. Twice when Curcio left the room, Cruz, 19, cursed at himself and said that he wanted to die, he deserved to die. "You're nothin'," Cruz told himself, followed by cursing. The interrogation will be pored over by prosecutors and defense attorneys if Cruz attempts an insanity defense or for mitigating factors if he is convicted and faces the death penalty. Cruz's attorneys have said he would plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of life without parole.

In Halls three years of brand name Truvada, which is made by the biopharmaceutimacology doctoral student, said shed rather stay abstinent than pay for a pill that costs three times her rent. American pharmaceutical companies have the power to drop the price of medications, but they choose not to, she said. If a generic brand of the drug was made available, it would probably be used more. Before taking the pill, students must be diagnosed as HIV-negative and attend a series of follow-up appointments, which Hall said is usually a deterrent. Students often lose interest when they discover theyll have to change their daily routine to take it. Ideally, the pill must be taken at the same time every day, Tipton said People forget to do a lot of things throughout their day, so a lot of people might forget to take the pill daily, Hall said. If you miss a day, then its pretty much rendered useless. HIV has a three-month incubation period, called the window period, Hall said. This means a four-month process before the patient can actually take the pill. While some health care providers are aware the pill may come with the social side effect of increasing risky behavior, others believe it is a big step toward controlling the said.

Editorial Column Election prep: Part 4 Targeted ads will save advertisingYou search Google for sunglasses. You browse for a while. You look at a few on Amazon, a few on RayBans website and ultimately decide to leave the purchase for another day. But now every website with Google AdSense, like the sidebar on Facebook, offers you sunglasses. Its called targeted advertising, and even if you might think its annoying, computers seem to know us better than we know ourselves. Im okay with big data as long as its good data. The targeted advertising you see on Facebook is collected from your browsing history when you view a retail website. Your browser, Chrome, Firefox or whatever you may be using, submits information about what youre looking at to third-party advertising networks, like doubleclick. net. To make a long story short, you are tracked all over the internet via cookies, small bits of information tied to your digital identity, which let advertisers know what youre looking at, when youre looking at it and if you allow location services, where youre looking at it from. Using all that data to sell you things isnt necessarily a bad thing in my book. Think of it like this: Web browsing is annoying enough as it is. Even with all our desperate, millennial-minded tactics of using AdBlock and related extensions to remove ads from our web experience, some websites require you to disable it to use them. Think of sites like bibme.org that a lot of us use to compile and format APA citations. Advertising can be disruptive and often annoying, but plenty of journalism websites, like those of The New York Times and The Washington Post, heck even The Independent Florida Alligator, use ads to make money. Do you really want your browsing experience to be full of ads for things that have no relevance to you? I want to support The Times and The Post, but I dont want to be bombarded with annoying ads for a new car, especially when Im not in the market for one. Id much rather my browser and internet service provider sell my data to advertisers, so I can get a glimpse of sunglasses instead. Advertising, despite our best attempts to quash it, will never perish from the earth. We can only make a best effort at keeping it from being rage inducing. Its easy to be scared of technology. The long-running meme is that there is an FBI agent constantly watching over you through the camera in your phone or your laptop. There are valid privacy concerns as well. But provided we do a good job of regulating it, I think the creepy ads that pop up to follow you on Facebook arent creepy at all. They are the future of a more pleasant internet.

Rose II is a Libertarian candidate and said he believes the tal issues. Commissioner of Agriculture Current Commissioner Adam Putnam is set to relinquish his seat with the election of one of seven candidates. Four Republicans and three Democrats are vying to be his replacement. The Republicans running against each other are Matt Caldwell, Denise Grimsley, Mike McCalister and Baxter Troutman. Caldwell sports an endorsement from Sen. Marco Rubio and, after his tweets during the 2016 presidential race surfaced criticizing President Donald Trump, said the president can count on my loyalty. Grimsley has been a Florida senator since 2012 and is the chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee. She also said she is in favor of making it easier for ex-felons to have their voting rights restored after theyve served their sentences. McCalister is a retired U.S. Army colonel who served from 1971 to 2005. He unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2010 and again for U.S. Senate in 2012. Troutman is a former state representative from Winter Haven chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection and the Environment & Natural Resources Council. The Democrats running in the Aug. 28 primary are Nicole Nikki Fried, Jeffrey Duane Porter and Roy David Walker. Fried is a lobbyist and lawyer focusing on residents access to medical marijuana. She earned her bachelors degree in political science, her masters in political campaigning and her law degree all from UF. She was also Student Body president during her studies. Porter is the mayor of Homestead and has worked in South Florida politics for 10 years. He is running on a platform of opposing Trumps tariffs, which he said has hurt farmers and their businesses. Walker is an environmental scientist and president of the South Florida Audubon Society. He said he would support legalizing recreational marijuana with conditional laws attached to treat it like tobacco products. He also said he is for enforcing existing gun laws more consistently.

8 ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2018HER PHOTOS SHOW DIFFERENT IMMIGRANTS AROUND GAINESVILLE. By Victoria SalomonAlligator Contributing WriterIn a climate of uncertainty and hatred toward immigrants, 65, brought light to their stories in a photo exhibition Sunday. Immigrants of Gainesville was sponsored by Welcoming Gainesville and Alachua County (WG&AC). It was shown at Emmanuel Mennonite Church, located at 1236 NW 18th Ave. was about an immigrant from Senegal called Baye. She would often see him working at Publix and then Luckys Market, but knowing his story was truly rewarding. Many of the people I interview With everything that is happening with (President Donald Trumps immigration) policy, I think its important to show these positive One of the challenges she faced making the exhibition was convincing subjects to tell their stories. It had some little obstacles, but the process was mostly fun, She is the administrator of the Humans of Gainesville page, which is based on the Humans of New York photo book and blog that presents New York City residents. I started Humans of Gainesville about six years ago, their picture and interview them. The exhibition drew a crowd of about 70 people, including members of WG&AC, united in the spirit of sharing the pictured subjects stories. WG&AC, which formed in 2015, has programs like a book club and a conversational table for people to learn English, said Richard MacMaster, 83, the chairman of the organization. These are meant to show the importance of immigrant communities. The biggest struggle for the events is money, MacMaster said. The funding for the Sunday event came from a grant by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. WG&AC printed and framed the pictures. The exhibition will be open for the upcoming months and can be accessed Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is so important to acknowlsaid. Diversity makes a community richer, stronger and better. Victoria Salomon / Alligator Contributor By Dana CassidyAlligator Staff WriterUF researchers have developed a new inexpensive mosquito trap to lower the cost and releases. Published in the Public Library of Science One last Thursday, the project focused on the Aedes Aegypti, or yellow-fever mosquito. These insects are a primary worldwide health concern as they carry arboviruses, which are diseases such as dengue, The battery-powered trap uses sound to imitate the wingbeat of female mosquitos to attract males. UF Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering doctoral student and trap developer Barukh Rohde explained that although females are the only ones that bite, they are harder to trap. Males are more likely to swarm where feacoustics. Making a trap for the males is easier because they only rely on sound. In recent years, scientists have been requitoes to limit the spread of viruses. Scientists do this by infecting the male with the Wolbachia virus. If one has the virus, after mating with a female, the eggs will not decreases the Aedes Aegypti population over time. However, this method of population veloped nations, which have the money to pursue these sorts of projects. Releasing enormous amounts of mosquitoes is not necessarily cheap, Rohde said. You want to make sure that the mosquitoes youre releasing get into all the areas that they need to go. U.S. Department of Agriculture research entomologist and Rohdes mentor Richard Mankin explained the release and monitoring of these Wolbachia-infected males has not been cheap, costing more than $100 for each trap. Rohdes invention is important to areas of the world that cannot afford to constantly release mosquitos, as his only costs around $10 in the U.S. (Rohde) is focused on an area where he is particularly good at coming up with ways to decrease the cost of electronic equipment, Mankin said. Another experiment conducted earlier in July wiped out over 80 percent of diseaseacross Australia. This has caused a bit of a debate. World Mosquito Program director Scott ONeill explained that this method can be costly and not long lasting, as the remaining mosquito population can regain numbers in the next mating season. A similar project to the Australian one is set to begin in the Florida Keys within the next few months. Rohde hopes the new trap will set a preccessible solutions to public health problems. I want scientists to think of ways that they can make devices cheaper for the general public, Rohde said. @danacassidy_ dcassidy@alligator.orgCourtesy of Barukh Rohde

Dine inside the historic Gulf Oil building or outside under the modern portico. dinner 5:30-9 Tues-Sat. welcometocivilization.com By Mark StineAlligator Staff WriterOhio State Universitys head football coach Urban Meyer is currently on administrative leave for supposedly knowing about domestic violence committed in 2009 and 2015 by OSU assistant Zach Smith against his now ex-wife, Courtney. Smith was State in July. Ohio State has conducted an investigation into Meyer and plans to conclude it within 14 days, according to a statement released Sunday night. Ohio State fans rallied outside of the schools football stadium Monday night, demanding the coach stay with the program. Meyer admitted July 24 at Big Ten Media Days that he knew about the 2009 incident, which occurred while Smith was a graduate assistant under Meyer at UF but denied knowing of such issues from 2015, which happened under his tenure at Ohio State. I dont know who creates a story like that, Meyer said. A statement was released on Twitter on Friday, saying he failed to tell the truth at Big Ten Media Days. Steve Addazio, head coach at Boston College and former assistant under Meyer at UF from 2005 to 2010, announced in a statement Saturday that he knew about problems between Smith and his ex-wife in 2009 but proceeded to hire him as a wide receivers coach at Temple University in 2011. As a husband, father and coach, I have zero tolerance for domestic abuse, Addazio said. There is no place in our program at Boston College for any member of our staff involved in domestic violence.Former UF coach center of controversyMeyer DOCTORS HOPE TO TREAT PATIENTS WHILE TEACHING STUDENTS. By Victoria ChinAlligator Contributing WriterThe U.S. spends more than $90 billion on the treatment and diagnosis of back and neck pain each year, and a new center at UF aims to provide cost-effective treatment for these patients. UF Health Comprehensive Spine Center, which opened Monday, lets patients see physicians from different areas of expertise relating to back and neck pain. This cuts costs and saves time for patients who are often referred to multiple doctors. The center is located in the $415 million UF Health Heart & Vascular and Neuromedicine Hospitals built in December 2017. Before the center was built, doctors who treated patients for back and neck pain would informally consult with doctors of other specializations, said Dr. Andrew McNeil, assistant professor of anesthesiology. Now, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, pain physicians and neurologists can work together We really have pretty much all the bases covered, said Dr. Daniel Hoh, associate professor of neurosurgery. The center also allows more patients to be seen and with same-day appointments, Hoh said. In our ideal system, a patient who wants to be seen calls one phone number, and they get a by one of our doctors, Hoh said. Back and neck pain can affect a persons quality of life, Hoh said. Patients are often given incomplete diagnoses or redundant information from doctors. What were focused on is providing sort of tailored, personalized medicine for each individual to optimise their quality of life, Hoh said. The center will also provide medical students and residents insights into a variety of pain treatment options, Hoh said. It also expands the opportunity to study patient outcomes and treatment effectiveness to depatients on a larger scale. Because UF Health is wellrecognized, patients will travel far to receive care, Hoh said. I really do believe the system that weve created here is unique and is very best suited towards the type of patients, as well as the greater sort of huge catchment area that the University of Florida covers, Hoh said.UF opens new spine center

This summer, weve been going over some of the best athletes and teams. But now, were going to take a look at some of those programs or people that we left out or missed. Our staff roundtable of Brendan Farrell, Andrew Huang, Evan Lepak, Chris OBrien and Mark Stine contributed their Honorable Mention of the Year. Brendan: Weve covered a lot for our alligatorSports Awards, but I think that the UF soccer team probably deserves more attention than weve given them over the past couple months. I realize that football, basketball and baseball are the most popular sports on campus, but I think we do forget about some of the other sports in Gainesville. This team went 17-7 over the course of the season and made it to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament. The United Soccer Coachthe country. Arguably, the best moment of the season came in postseason play in the Sweet 16 against Washington State. The Gators had their chances in this game, but neither team could break through in regulation as the game headed to overtime in a scoreless tie. slid a through pass to freshman Deanne Rose. Rose took a touch, evaded two defenders and took a shot at an open goal. The ball sailed over the crossbar as a dejected Rose fell to the ground. The game went on. Moving onto the second overtime, Seiler again moved towards goal before giving the ball to junior Lais Araujo. Araujo gathered it and played it back to a streaking Rose. Rose was now one-on-one with the goalkeeper. Rather than sailing the ball towards the heavens, Rose kept it low, burying the shot in the corner of the net, sending the Gators to the It might not have been the biggest sporting event at UF over the last year, but I feel that it at least deserves a mention. @Bfarrell727 bfarrell1@alligator.org Andrew SEC and NCAA tournaments might distract the casual fan from the amount of talent on the UF mens basketball roster. Chris Chiozza (First Team All-SEC, SEC All-Defensive team), along with at-times lethal scorers KeVaughn Allen and Jalen Hudson, were part of a crowded back court rotation for the Gators. It was hard for UFs guards to all shine at once, especially Allen, who led Florida in scoring the season before last.

Obviously this is a snippet of a larger answer, but the gist of what Mullen got into at the press conference was his players could own weapons, just make sure they know how to use them. He talked about how his policy was more about educating the players on safety and when to possess weaponry rather than not have them at all. Yikes. He should have said something along the lines of this: I have a no-weapons policy and I mean no weapons. Our players should see no reason to possess a weapon.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2018 ALLIGATOR 15 APAssociated PressCHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Less than a year after emerging from a long run of NCAA issues, North Carolina is dealing with rule violations again this time for football players selling team-issued shoes. The school announced Monday that 13 players will miss games serving suspensions for the secondary NCAA violations, which will leave the Tar Heels shorthanded during much of the seasons opening month. While secondary violations are generally considered less severe, the penalties in this case will result in several players being forced to sit out at least a third of the regular-season schedule. In all, nine players will miss four games, two will sit two games and two others will miss one contest. The NCAA approved a school request to delay two suspensions affecting multiple players at one position, while the other 11 suspensions begin with the Sept. 1 opener at California. The Tar Heels want to put move on quickly from this latest embarrassment. The guys that are suspended, theyre very remorseful, coach Larry Fedora said during a news conference Monday. They dont want to let their teammates down and they feel like they did in this situation. But nobodys pointing Were beyond that point now. Its already happened. It is what it is, so theyre all looking forward and moving forward. The suspensions have had at least one major impact already. With sophomore quarterback Chazz Surratt among the players suspended four games, the teams most-watched preseason position battle has come to a swift end with Fedora saying junior Nathan Elliott will start against Cal. The players facing four-game suspensions are: Surratt; defensive ends Malik Carney, Tomon Fox and Tyrone Hopper; offensive linemen Brian Anderson, Quiron Johnson and Jordan Tucker; receiver Beau Corrales and linebacker Malik Robinson. Defensive backs Greg Ross and Tre Shaw must sit two games, while quarterback Jack Davidson and offensive lineman Jonah Melton will each miss one. Carney was the only suspended player to talk with reporters Monday, saying he has apologized to the team. In the moment like that, youre not really thinking about the consequences, Carney said when asked if he knew selling his pair of shoes was improper. Like as a kid, when your mom tells you Dont touch the iron because its hot, you dont really think that its hot. You just do it. Its something you dont really think about in the moment. And I made a wrong decision. UNC reported the violations after learning of the special-edition Nike shoes being sold to at least one retailer in an email from a member of the public in January, according to documents released after a public-records request from The Associated Press. That email contained a social media advertisement from a retailer seeking $3,500 for the shoes. According to case documents released by the school, 15 players ultimately sold shoes either to a retailer or to a teammate, with three of those purchases for as much as $2,500. Two other players sold shoes for $200 or less. One player who isnt named in the documents purchased shoes from seven teammates for a total of $6,150. Athletics director Bubba Cunpleted their early investigation within four days. Players refunded transactions and Cunningham said all but about nine pairs of shoes were recovered. One of the retailers contacted by the school said he had previously purchased shoes from athletes at Michigan, California and Marquette, according to the case documents. Absolutely we turned everything in back in January and Februondary violations from the NCAA, Cunningham said, so this case is closed and as soon as the suspensions are served, that will be the end of it. With three defensive ends among the list, UNC sought and received approval from the NCAA to stagger some of the suspensions at the position, which can be allowed for concerns over health and safety during a game. Carney will miss games starting Week 2 against East Carolina, UCF and Pittsburgh. Hell return to play at Miami, then sit again at home against Virginia Tech on Oct. 13. Fox wont sit out until the Sept. 27 game against Miami. Hell return against Virginia Tech, then sit again against Syracuse, Virginia and Georgia Tech on Nov. 3. The shoe-sale penalties come nally emerged from its multiyear academic case, which had the that included lack of institutional control. That case reached a nopenalty conclusion in October. And that case was an offshoot of an investigation into the football program in 2010 for improper That one ended when the NCAA issued sanctions in March 2012 here that included a one-year postseason ban and scholarship reductions.13 UNC players arrested for selling school-issued shoesFOOTBALLBy Mark StineSports WriterThe Florida Gators will take the today. Head coach Dan Mullen transitioned the team on Sunday and Monday by holding practice in just helmets and shoulder pads. However, the rise in intensity hasnt developed any separation between the two redshirt sophomore quarterbacks -Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask. According to Mullen, they unsurprisingly still have a long way to go in learning the offense. To be a big-time quarterback, I dont think they even think theyd know how hard that is, he said. They should understand it by hopefully next summer. I was hoping maybe with just one of them it would really click, but I didnt see that happen. Despite praising Trask on Friday for recognizing a double team and hitting his check-down, the UF coach said theres no separating the two yet. The fact that each of these quarterbacks dont yet have a fects what kind of leaders they can be. Mullen emphasized that both Franks and Trask try to be leaders by example but arent comfortable enough to be vocal leaders. I think the vocal leadership dence in what theyre doing, he out the reads and what theyre doing and making sure they look the right way or theyre stepping the right way. However, a bright spot for UFs offense is the addition of wide receivers Trevon Grimes and Van Jefferson, who were ruled eligible by the NCAA last week. Jefferson still has to clear SEC waivers since he transferred from Ole Miss. I called my mom and told her the news, Grimes said on Saturday, and I actually shed a little tear I was so excited to get on the son. Both receivers said that Florida wasnt a hard choice. With a new coaching staff, UF gave them the opportunity to join a team where everyone will have the same opportunity to learn Mullens system. Former All-American receiver Percy Harvin visited spring practices, allowing the tandem of transfers to get acquainted with the schools tradition at the position. I think my third, fourth spring practice I talked to Percy one-onone, and he told me if I keep working hard and stay focused I can be a monster, Grimes said. If a great like him can say (that), then The additions of Grimes and Jefferson took the Gators from needing depth at receiver to having one of the best collection of players at the position in recent memory. Florida lost Brandon Powell, the teams slot man and leader in receptions from 2017, and Antonio Callaway, who was suspended last year but couldve been the teams most explosive wide-out. But Jefferson, who started in the slot for Ole Miss for two seasons, and Grimes, who at 6-foot-5 can both into UFs existing framework. And they, Jefferson especially, have been a help to the receivers since they arrived in January. Junior Tyrie Cleveland, the teams leading receiver from a season ago and biggest deep threat, even said hes learned from the Ole Miss transfer. I learned a lot from Van, Cleveland said. Just being able to see him run different routes and how he handles himself on and off all the notes I can from him. @mstinejr mstine@alligator.orgQBs have lots to learn, transfer receivers settled in Mark Stine / Alligator StaffA unit of Florida wide receivers including transfers Van Jefferson (12) and Trevon Grimes (8), rests after catching passes from the quarterbacks on Saturday.

With the front court missing about half of its frontcourt depth due to injury, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Koulechov found himself lining up at power forward for much of the season. He was a knockdown shooter 39.5 percent from long range and 86.4 percent from the line and these skills quickly earned him a nickname in Gainesville: gor. But thats not what was most impressive about Koulechov. As an undersized power forward he led UF in total rebounds (218) and rebounds per game (6.4). The Gators No. 2 rebounder was 6-foot-9 power forward/center Kevarrius Hayes (5.0 per game). @AndrewJHuang ahuang@alligator.org Evan: Sometimes streaks are meant to be broken, and it certainly looked like one was coming to a miserable end for the Florida Gators football team in Lexington, Kentucky, last September. UF came into the game riding a 30-game winning streak against UK that dated back to 1987. 1987? Let that simmer for a second. Its been over 30 years since the Wildcats tasted sweet victory over the Gators. Thats utter dominance by one team over another, and, yes, that is also currently the longest active streak in the NCAA. me believing wholeheartedly that the streak was coming to an end that night. And who wouldnt? The offense had been stagnant all night, and Luke Del Rio was under center. Thankfully for UF though, a trick play that featured Kadarius Toney tossing a 50-yard pass to Tyrie Cleveland set up a scoring drive that would close the gap to 27-21 with just over seven minutes to play. On the next offensive series, after a stop by Floridas defense, the unit kept the miracles coming. Two third-down conversions and a couple atypical fourth-down conversions on the drive allowed the Gators offense to get inside UKs 10-yard line with under a minute to go. That helped set up a Luke Del Rio touchdown pass to an inconceivably uncovered Freddie Swain in the back corner of the end zone to give UF the 28-27 lead. end the game and continue to break the hearts of the Kentucky faithful. @evanmplepakkk elepak@alligator.org Chris: Honestly, I dont think we gave enough love to womens golfer Elin Esborn.

Maybe not the freshman of the year, but she @THEChrisOB cobrien@alligator.org Mark: If youre a UF sports fan, you should know who Lindsey Ronbeck is. The lacrosse teams captain and leading scorer (65 goals) had a monstrous junior season, one where she led the team in scoring despite missing three games due to an injury she picked up against Navy on March 13. When she returned in the teams matchup with Connecticut on March 31, Ronbeck scored 10 points (six goals, four assists). The mark was a career high, and Ronbeck became only the second Gator (Ashley Bruns, 11, 2012 against Sienna) to register double-digit points. But she saved her best for the Big East Tournament, which was hosted by UF. set the record for most goals scored in a Big East tournament game (8) and tied the Florida record for most goals in a game (Shannon Gilroy, 2014 against High Point). The Gators cruised to 18-6 victory over Denver scores, setting the Big East record for goals in a single tournament at 15 and earning her the tournament MVP. She now holds the most goals in the tournaments history (31), however, she wont be able to extend that record as UF moves to the ACC next season. Ronbecks dominant 2018 season won her Second Team All-American honors. Itll be exciting what shell be capable of in her senior season, especially if she can stay healthy. @mstinejr mstine@alligator.org AWARDS, from pg. 14Ronbeck scored 8 against MUthere WILL be consequences. Mullen went on to say that he had players at Mississippi State that had bows and arrows. Id like to add that he for hunting. But when wide receiver Kadarius Toney was found with an AR-15 in his backseat, his well-known response was chilling: protection from locals. I asked Mullen at the conference about his reaction to Toneys response, he said, Thats education...Any time I look at a situation, I dive deep into it, dive deep into the background, dive deep into where youre from, where youre grown up, what your neighborhood was like, what youve been exposed to in life, all those different situations. Yikes again. Lets again review what he should have said: Im worried, for this team, for my players. We need to look into why he thinks he needs a Are my players in danger of any true harm? Is there something so sinister that he needs a deadly weapon? This is bigger than football. But again, he missed, and talked more about education than the actual problem at hand. Overall, Mullen was stoic in his answers. He faced us, the media, and didnt shy away. But he had a chance to escape the hurricane of confusion and criticism. And he didnt.
