MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterMore than seven hours after starting an all-day rehearsal, the UF Fightin Gator Marching Band brass section was still picking up speed. A graduate student stomped, clapped and beatboxed on a pedestal facing a group of band members. After only a few run-throughs, their tubas and trombones had turned the noise into the fat and mellow jazz of Swing Swing Swing. The band departed Monday for London, where they will perform Friday before the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics and they had to face 14 hours of continual rehearsing Sunday. It can be really overwhelming and draining, said Rene Mark, 23, former tuba section leader and recent UF graduate. But marching season is so far away that we really do need the time to put on the music its a lot to take in. bers of the marching band making the trip had met to rehearse together since receiving their sheet music in April. One of the challenges the band faces performing abroad will be memorizing a set list almost 50 songs long. Classic rock from The halls of Steinbrenner Band Building The set list contains almost a football seasons worth of music, said Gator band director Jay Watkins. The drum majors or the directors can call up anything at anytime during the show, Mark said. You just have to know it and be ready to play it. the students preparedness. During football season, marching band members learn a new halftime show for each home game. Theyre used to playing in front of 90,000 people up close and personal, Watkins said. I think were just moving to a different stage. The marching bands journey to London began about a year and a half ago, according to Watkins.

KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterJohn J. Ross made his way into the UF College of Medicine when J. Wayne Reitz referred to a man, not the student union. UFs departments of pediatrics and neurology, where he was for 47 years. Ross died July 17 at North Florida Regional Medical Center after he had a massive heart attack while playing tennis July 14. He was 83. Ross, who grew up in Jacksonville, claimed state titles in a low hurdles track event and tennis at Robert E. Lee High School. He went to Duke University as an undergraduate and was captain of the tennis team there. Ross once played tennis with Arthur Ashe, who won three Grand Slam titles. He continued on to Harvard Medical School for his M.D. He met his wife of 52 years, Nancy Hays Ross, while completing residency at Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital. Ross could spend hours with patients, said Paul Carney, a colleague in the UF department of pediatrics. They dont make em like him anymore, he said. Ross was director and co-founder of the Multidisciplinary Diagnostic and Training Program at UF, which is part of a statewide diagnostic and instructional program for children with disabilities. Ross son, John Ross II, and Carney said the program would be the accomplishment Ross is most proud of, besides his children. John Ross II, 43, remembers his father teaching him to play tennis and later leaving work to stand on the sidelines after practices and matches. In everything he did, my father always wanted to make a difference, he said. And thats what he did. Ross was active until he died with the Holy Faith Catholic Church, Alachua County Medical Society, Gator Tennis Boosters, DB Racquet Club and Founders Society of the Florida Museum of Natural History. He had 31 appointments at teaching centers including UF, Harvard and the Childrens Hospital Medical Center in Boston. He also ran for the Florida House of Representatives in 2002. He is survived by his wife, Nancy; three children; a brother, a sister and nine grandchildren. TUESDAY, JULY 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 Courtesy to the AlligatorJohn J.

UF wants to replace independently owned racks with black modular racks owned by the university. The Alligator started to collect data during Fall versitys in Spring 2012. The Alligator then presented the data to retired professor David Denslow to complete an impact study. The resolution asks the administration to not replace the racks until after Denslow completes the study. had to be passed by the Judiciary Committee on Sunday. It was passed unfavorably. Sen. Justin Shifrin said if the Alligator is a business, it shouldnt concern itself with Student Government. Sen. Truman Williams said the modular units could increase free speech by juxtaposing different publications next to each other. Bill author and committee member Sen. Umair Asghar said the removal of the racks could have dire consequences. He said the issues other members raised should be If you feel uncomfortable telling administration to halt efforts, bring it up in Senate, Asghar said.

To use these racks, the Alligator would have to sign a licensing agreement and pay a fee to the university. In our editorial last week, we argued that this change could hurt the ability of the Alligator to serve the students of UF. Since then, our efforts have been covered by various news outlets and student press organizations such as The Miami Herald and the Student Press Law Center. This coverage has revealed a few reasons provided by the university about why they feel it is necessary to make this change. UF spokesman Steve Orlando told the Student Press Law Center that administrators primary concerns were safety and aesthetics. Every time we have a tropical storm or hurricane, we have to get the racks off campus, he told the SPLC. The university worries that the racks could become dangerous projectiles in a storm. The Alligator has offered to comply with whatever safety standards are necessary to secure our racks, including weighing them down. However, we have not been told what these standards are. The Alligator has also previously offered to remove the racks in the event of a hurricane or tropical storm. This storm argument is also absurd given that hurricanes rarely pop up overnight. We are usually given ample warning, during which we can remove the racks. Clearly, these safety concerns are just attempts to get around the main reason for the move: aesthetics and control. Orlando told the SPLC the administration thinks our current racks didnt blend in with the historic look of the campus. But does this concern for aesthetics really constitute enough of a compelling interest for a public institution like UF to not only control the distribution of a student paper on campus, but also charge us to $100 per unit each year to distribute it? Considering that we provide a free and vital service to the university community, we cannot see any valid interest in the administrations pursuits. Again, this change could create a loss of visibility on campus for the Alligator, hurting our readership and reducing our advertising revenue. A loss of revenue will lead to fewer papers and fewer pages. As a result, the UF community will receive less information focused on it. The administration has tried to appease our concerns, telling us we can put a measly orange 2-by-11-inch sign in each of our modular units with our brand on it. Well, at least people with good vision will still be able to locate us on campus.Romney could learn a lesson from sitcomsMom, why doesnt anybody like me? asks a teenage daughter on any sitcom ever. Well, sweetie, says the mother as she sits them both on the probably beige couch, maybe because youve been trying so hard lately. You dont normally wear these clothes or such heavy makeup, do you? No, I guess not, says the daughter. I just wanted to be like the popular girls in school. They always get all the attention! Now, you listen to me. All those other kids? They dont know what theyre missing out on, says the mother. Think about all your friends who like you just the way you are. __ Tune into a family sitcom, and I guarantee you will catch that scene at some point. Its the job of sitcoms to portray everyday struggles and to teach us how to deal with them. Mitt Romney is the daughter in this scene when it comes to popularity on social networks. His Facebook account has almost 24 million fewer fans than President Obamas account. His Tumblr noticeably and continually receives a paltry number of notes compared to Obamas. For example, the neys Tumblr is 51. That means 51 Tumblr accounts either liked or reblogged that post. 2,000 notes at the time of writing. The least popular posts Romneys account cant claim. But its Romneys Twitter account that has recently been under scrutiny. Less than a million users follow @MittRomney, while more than 17 million follow @BarackObama. When Saturday evening rolled around, multiple websites began to notice an extreme increase in Twitter followers. In the past month, Romney gained about 3,000 to 4,000 followers each day. This Friday, 23,000 more accounts started following him, and 75,000 more followed him on Saturday. No matter who you are, or where you fall on the political spectrum, thats a bizarrely high amount of new followers. But, so what? Whats the problem? A lot of those followers do not appear to be real people. That makes a lot of people think that he purchased these socalled spam accounts in order to boost his numbers. A few of the accounts have gobbledygook tweets, if they have any tweets at all. They also follow the same small number of other users. Romneys team has come forward to deny the purchase of Twitter followers. I might come across as insensitive or disingenuous for a minute: In addition to accusing Romney of buying Twitter followers, people have also speculated that he did it this weekend on purpose. Perhaps he wanted it to be swept under the news rug of Aurora, Colo. Maybe Romney needs to spend some time in front of coms show us time and time again that we dont have to be something were not in order to succeed. You shouldnt change yourself in order to become, or appear, more popular. Romneys main demographic is not the typical social media user. Theyre out there, but theyre not coming out of the woodwork when compared with Obamas supporters. Maybe Romneys robot friends thought he was feeling lonely. Sami Main is a journalism senior at UF.

Im going to be me, Im going to be Will Muschamp, he said at his introductory press conference last December. and I hope they feed off the intensity that we try to bring to the game. Muschamps animated side shined through multiple times during his inaugural campaign with the Gators. Perhaps his most memorable display came er Chris Rainey signaled for a fair catch right before a Tigers defender made contact, which phones caught footage of back judge. Muschamp apologized three days later. While Muschamp cleaned up his language, he maintained his intensity and even referred State on Nov. 26, 2011.

The only difference besides track having the extra championship is the tennis squad had fewer faults on their record. They won the Southeastern Conference regular-season title with a perfect 11-0 conference record, followed by taking the SEC Tournament by force, dropping only one team point in three matches. By the time they were hoisting the hardware, their record stood at 27-1. As I recall, the mens track squad failed to win the SEC Championship in both Indoor and Outdoor. They may have proved they were the best in the nation when it mattered, but we are talking about best team of the year. That includes everything before the championship, even practice (ahem, Allen Iverson). Joe: sorry. I just watched Pulp Fiction for the 100th time the other day.

Besides, I cant help remembering those failures in the SEC Championships not once, but twice. On the other hand, the tennis squad had only one error a third-week loss to second-ranked Stanford. From that point on, they played 100 days of unbeaten tennis against 22 teams, 14 of which were ranked in the top 30. No, they didnt have that inspir ing performance, winning against all odds, overcoming mental hur tles. Instead, the national champions dominated from day one, never looking back. I believe that is what made the Dream Team, the John Carter of basketball. Joe: Now, now. Everybody knows the true Dream Team is this years squad. Just ask Kobe.
