Beans stopped to talk to the men and told them the golf cart may have been stolen. The men said they believed the cart was stolen, because it had been hot-wired. They denied stealing the cart and said they found it in the woods. investigating a burglary where Raymond Hatch, a Gainesville resident, reported seeing a Craigslist post with his golf cart listed for sale Monday. The post had a phone number attached to the description. Hatch, 51, said on Tuesday that two of his golf carts, one of which was recovered several days after it went missing, had been stolen Aug. 19. Hatch said his second cart, worth about $5,000, was equipped with a hitch, a radio and off-road tires. Beans contacted Loveland, believing the cart may have been related to her case, according to the report. Loveland described the cart, which matched the one Baulding, Cox and McClendon pushed out of the woods.

The John V. Lombardi Scholarship and Penelope W. and E. Roe Stamps Scholarship recipients were acclimated to college life before arriving on campus. During a sixweek summer study abroad program, the students lived with host families and attended classes in Mexico.

I guess that was very good preparation for UF. Sameer Saboungi, an 18-year-old biology freshman, said the trip helped him form a close network with other students before he stepped on campus. Once you get here, youre still getting used to the setting, but you have this base of friends you can count on, Saboungi said. Others made different connections between Mexico and UF. Ive been lost in both places, said Stephen Gibbs, an 18-year-old chemical engineering freshman.

The pain soon developed into diarrhea, which often left him dehydrated and avoiding public excursions. The UF teaching assistant and health communications Ph.D. student has ulcerative coliPatients like Frohlich can now rehydrate by drinking Enterade-R, a new beverage developed by a company based in Newberry. The drink, which is mainly marketed toward cancer patients undergoing treatment, launched Monday. In situations where you need rapid rehydration, the drink is very useful, said Dr. Sadasivan Vidyasagar, an Enterade founder and gastrointestinal electrophysiology specialist. Vidyasagar and two of his partners work for UFs Department of Radiation Oncology and conduct their research at the Cancer and Genetics Research Complex on campus. Radiation can negatively affect the small intestine, which controls 85 percent of the bodys electrolyte and nutrient absorptions, Vidyasagar said. To replenish the electrolytes the intestines cant totally absorb, the drink couples them with amino acids that the body can still accept postradiation, Vidyasagar said. That way, when the amino acids are absorbed, the electrolytes go with them, rehydrating patients. Enterade-R differs from other rehydration drinks like Gatorade, because it does not contain glucose, which the body can reject after exposure to stressful situations, Vidyasagar said. As a potential consumer, Frohlich was intrigued by Enterade-Rs concept. However, he said hes concerned about the price of the drink and that it can only be ordered online. At about $7 a bottle, the price is due to the companys desire to make the drink as natural as possible, Vidyasagar said. Its proteins are taken from plants rather than fats, and its amino acids are synthesized rather than broken down, so theres no chemical residue. Vidyasagar said the price could drop with substantial sales, allowing the product to become more accessible. Soon, Enterade plans to release a drink for general consumers, he said. But with Enterade-R, the company is targeting patients Thats a concept Frohlich supports.

Food will be provided by Hoggtowne Lemonade and Karma Cream, information booths will range from activism to political information, and services will include infor mation on job training and after-school child care.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 Mitt Romney announced, on Aug. 11, Rep. Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin as his running mate. The choice of Ryan seems to have outperformed expectations. Since then, Mitt Romneys poll position has improved. The RealClearPolitics average of polls on Aug. 11 had him trailing by 4.6 points. Today, he trails by 1.1 points and continues to trend upwards. Romneys position in predictive models has similarly improved. Nate Silvers model at The New York Times has seen Romneys chances increase by 2.6 percent, from 28 percent to 30.6 percent, with other models showing similar gains. en since the announcement. On Intrade, shares of Romney to be President rose 5.1 points, from 38.6 percent to 43.7 percent. Ryan has been regarded by many as one of Romneys bolder vice president options. During the Obama administration, Ryan has emerged as one of the partys intelcal issues. He was the principal author of the Republican Partys 2012 and 2013 budget proposals. His vigorous advocacy of reform and articulate dedependents as well as securing the moderate Romneys ingness to put forward budget voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives, should give Democrats a large cache of votes and positions to use as ammunition against Romney. The clear intention of Ryans selection is to focus the 2012 campaign on the economy. The extent to which this has succeeded is unclear most campaign discussion was focused on the economy before Ryan was selected, and would likely have remained there had Romney selected someone safer such as Tim Pawlenty or Robert Portman. The Romney camp hopes that the selection of Ryan will turn the 2012 campaign into a big-ideas campaign like the one that brought Ronald Reagan to power. The Obama camp hopes that the partnership will be more akin to when moderate Bob Dole picked the conbent Bill Clinton. Either way, the Ryans selection breaks the mold of usual vice presidential selections, which are done to balance a ticket geographically or politically and to make moves on swing states and demographics. As it stands, the choice of Ryan for vice president thus far appears to be a high-risk, high-reward campaign strategy that has thus far yielded a modest improvement in Mitt Romneys electoral position. Keith Yost is a columnist for The Tech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Paul Ryan a bold choice for RomneyUWireI really hate getting sucker-punched. I am constantly being enticed by all sorts of titillating bait, only to get gut-checked by an entirely different reality. Wear AXE, so every girl will want you! Spider-Man 3 will be the most epic movie youve ever seen! Not likely. My issue is with the expectations. If mine are not met, I am often left disappointed, incensed or embarrassed. I have decided to use a different approach with this column. Rumor has it that honesty is the best policy. I thought I would set the tone for this semester by issuing the following statement: I am going to be that guy. I spent a lot more time than I care to remember in Miami hair salons while I was growing up. Trapped in that cruel prison of feminine styling, I gleaned a few indispensable bits of wisdom that have stayed with me: 1.) There is no smell quite as vomit-inducis no negotiation. There are no IOUs. 3.) Nothing makes a woman think twice about a curling iron like an inch-and-a-half Its the last point that really resonates here. After my cousin was accidentally branded by a negligent stylist, it took years for her to relax any time the curling iron came out. Although a hot curling iron has the potential to make the outer beauty of a woman match her inner beauty, it also has the ability to burn and scar her. This column is not meant to be one of those curling irons. If youre lost, stick with me I promise that the dots will connect. Two things are never brought up in polite conversation: politics and religion. Why? Because they alienate, hurt and infuriate in ways that still make us wince to this day. I can lay one of your fears to rest right now by telling you that I have very little intention of talking politics in any direct manner. I will, however, actively discuss spirituality in this column, and I would like for it to not be a surprise when it occurs. I am that guy. As clich as it may sound, I tend to think of religious discourse as a hot curling iron of sorts capable of extreme good or extreme evil. I love hearing different opinions. I enjoy when others make me think and re-evaluate the things I believe. weirdos, so Ill try to avoid their mistakes. If youve heard it all before, I humbly method to the madness. If you disagree, feel free to harass me via email, write a letter to the editor or apply to be a columnist next semester. approaches you with a hot topic doesnt mean theyre trying to burn you. At the very least, Sally Beauty Supply sells ointment right next to the curling irons or so Ive heard. Ryan Galloway is a religion senior at UF. His column appears on Wednesdays.On curling irons and religion, or how to not get burnedI would like to address a gender inequality that has vexed me greatly the past two weeks. Both Tropical Storm Isaac and the general rainy nature of Florida have characterwith nature. downpours or, worst of all, the tangible humidity waiting aged positive attitudes throughout the day. This depression, however, is less draining when the proper precautions are taken. Every student knows to bring an umbrella regardless of the chance of precipitation likewise with raincoats. Rain boots are an entirely different matter. Daily, and without fail, I will step in a puddle. Given the high volume of rain recently, these puddles are usually grown from the whimsical 1-inch deep puddles trampled gleefully in RomComs, to the far more insidious 3-to 4-inch puddles that penetrate shoes and soak socks. The instant this happens, and later in the day when I remove my shoes to reveal my pruned and misshapen feet, I think to myself This would not have happened if I were wearing rain boots. Unfortunately for me and my feet, it would be impossible for me to wear rain boots because, as a guy, it is not in the sphere of acceptable clothing options. Girls wear rain boots with shorts, and its cute. For guys, unless youre a construction worker in a Dodge Ram commercial, a butcher or a supervillain, rubber boots are just not acceptable. And dont get me wrong: I agree that the mental image of me wearing cargo shorts and rubber boots is an absurd one. jeans at one point. Most clothing developments had a startworthy was often on the line. The T-shirt, for example, would not exist as it does today without Marlon Brando shamelessly and controversially sporting an undershirt as an overshirt in A Streetcar Named Desire. Short shorts used to be widely accepted as menswear in the 80s, and now, despite continued scorching summer heat, I would cause some double-takes wearing mid-thigh-length hot pink shorts. Women, on the other hand, can wear shorts of any length. Again, showing off my pale, hairy thighs is not my burning desire, but I would appreciate the freedom to do so. While the transition might be uncomfortable, we must ask ourselves: At what cost is equality too expensive? conventional society to achieve a brighter future for the feet of men everywhere?

A LIGHTNING STRIKE DELAYED THE OPENING. DANIELLE NATHANAlligator Contributing WriterTwo young boys with hands and faces covered in barbecue sauce sat smiling and waving smoked ribs. Two men, who didnt know each other, scooted close together at the bar to enjoy barbecue with a new friend at Adams Rib Co. The restaurant opened its second locaspection cleared Friday morning three days before its expected Monday grand opening, said Michelle Brewer, co-owner of Adams Rib Co. A lightning strike to the building early this summer added a two-day delay. It was minor technicalities that led to why we were delayed for four weeks, said Adam Brewer, co-owner of Adams Rib Co. Despite the delay, patrons say the sauce is still boss. Sauce. Its really the sauce that brings me back, said Carla Williams, 43. Williams used to eat at the original Adams Rib Co. when she visited Gainesville from Tampa. Now a Gainesville resident, she said she plans to eat there at least once a week. Williams is also excited about the restaurants breakfast menu.

Our real goal is to get people thinking about the issues. The Gator Coalition for Civic Engagement is a new, nonpartisan club that promotes understanding of the governments role in students lives, MacLellan said. The organization will screen the Democratic National Convention as well. Any student especially students who maybe havent thought about the election previously is in our target demographic, the 21-year-old journalism senior said. Thursdays attendees can watch streaming video from websites like C-SPAN and CNN. Students can also register absentee voting process.

Berkley Whaley and Floridas other freshmen have stepped up in Noami SantosLambs absence. See story, page 15.Poll QuestionIs Floridas quarterback rotation a good idea? Vote online at alligatorSports.org. JOE MORGANAlligator Staff WriterFlorida coach Will Muschamp believes the Gators can win with two quarterbacks. Beyond this weekend, offensive coordinator Brent Pease is not so certain. Tough to answer, Pease said. I dont think so. Thats my gut feeling. I dont know if its sustainable from there. Sophomores Jacoby Brissett and Jeff against Bowling Green on Saturday. One ter, while the other will play the second. At halftime, Muschamp and Pease will reevaluate the situation. Regardless of how Saturdays game transpires, Florida will begin the 2012 season without a clear, unquestioned starter under center. I dont think anyone was really expecting that, Driskel said. I think they wanted Sixteen days ago, Muschamp did not want to be in this position. He wanted to fensive drive. Obviously, the quarterback, Id like to be a little more settled, you know? Muschamp said on Aug. 13. Eleven days ago, Muschamps tone had not changed. The quarterback position jumps out at you, Muschamp said on Aug. 18. Maybe try to get a little more settled there. However, the second-year head coachs approach took a dramatic turn last Friday. After weeks of competition during spring practice and fall camp, Muschamp announced that both Brissett and Driskel would play in Floridas season opener. They both deserve the right to play, he said on Aug. 24. Theyve earned that and they both deserve the right to start. On Monday, Muschamp announced his plans for the rotation. Brissett and Driskel will each have 15 minutes to stake a claim on the starters role. Then, Muschamp and Pease will have to WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORGDavid Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida sophomore quarterbacks Jeff Driskel (left) and Jacoby Brissett watch from the sidelines during the Gators open practice on Aug. 18. UF quarterback rotation not sustainable JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterWhile the Florida coaching staff still has not settled on a starting quarterback, all parties involved in the decision feel good about the eventual starters rapport with the wide receiving corps. Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett consaid throughout fall practice: they are Although neither has played the majority of snaps with the starting receivers, offensive coordinator Brent Pease believes Theyve all worked with them enough consistently, Pease said. I dont think they go out there and think, OK, this guy is throwing it, so I got to adjust to his ball. I mean, they both can spin the ball, so thats not going to matter. Frankie Hammond Jr. and Quinton Dunbar were listed as the starting receivers on the depth chart Will Muschamp released on Monday. Driskel said some of the motion in Peases new offense gave the receivers trouble in the spring, but the wideouts have put the issues behind them. Theyve progressed so much since the spring, Driskel said. The shifts and motions were kind of shaky. In the beginning of camp, we had a couple penalties with illegal procedure and stuff like that, but were really getting better and theyre polishing up their routes and motions as well. The Other Guys: Brissett and Driskel arent the only two quarterbacks getting reps, as redshirt sophomore Tyler Murphy and true freshman Skyler Mornhinweg have also gotten time under center. Murphy has only appeared in two games in two seasons and has yet to attempt a pass. However, Pease praised Murphys ability to handle himself if thrown into a game.Chemistry with wideouts not affected by QB battleSEE NOTE PAGE 14 SEE QUARTERBACK, PAGE 14To most, Florida looks like a Gator Bowl bid waiting to happen. The Gators have two unproven quarterbacks, and neither has been named turning from the eighth-ranked defense, UF is expected to struggle. Perhaps the Gainesville heat has clouded my judgment, but this UF team will prove the naysayers wrong this year. It took until the January bowl game before the Gators bought into secondyear coach Will Muschamp, junior defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd said. The Gator Bowl victory jumpstarted the offseason program, and the players realized a turnaround from their dreadful season wasnt going to happen by accident. Last year ,whatever we did during the summer didnt work, junior receiver Andre Debose said. It got us to 7-6. If you want change you have to change yourself. Change is a common theme for UF since last season ended. A power rushing ning by Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey.

season goals, he will drain the clock with his inside running. This is a line of scrimmage league, Muschamp said. Generally, your season is predicated on the quarterback position and both lines of scrimmage. The trenches will improve because of better quarterback play. An offense that moves the chains will keep the defense on the sidelines. Coupled with the Gillislee Express, Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel will do just that. Excluding blowout losses to Alabama and LSU, UFs SEC depoints. The Gators started a true freshman quarterback against SEC opponents. Brissett opened against LSU and Auburn. Going out there, we probably Youve just got to play the next play, and thats what I learned. Comfort was an issue in the UF in 2011. Im going to be much more to expect for [the defense] to throw at us and knowing what were going to give to them, sophomore quarterback Jeff Driskel said. The 2012 roster may look like a jumbled batch of unproven and underachieving talent, but the real mess is behind UF. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org. He has some experience in the offense from spring on, and hes a very bright kid, Pease said of Murphy. If he gets in a situation, he knows how to manage things. Pease said Mornhinweg, a Philadelphia native who decommitted from Penn State and was a late addition to UFs recruiting class for 2012, has shown promise. Because Brissett and Driskel are both sophomores, Mornhinweg will have time to develop. Skylers going to be a good quarterback here, Pease said. I think hes still got some time to develop and I think were in that situation to continue to let him grow and prepare. What Brown Can Do for UF: There hasnt been any doubt throughout fall practice that Mike Gillislee would be the starter at running back. The depth chart was more uncertain behind him, however, as several players battled for the No. 2 spot. Redshirt sophomore Mack Brown is listed as the backup of the season. Pease said that Brown, who has carried the ball just 15 times for 65 yards in two years, has improved several aspects of his game since 2011. I think Macks gotten better, Pease said. Hes become a initely got the ability. Hes improved his ball security. I think hes learned more things within the offense. He understood that thats one of the things he had to pick up. Be more consistent. ... Hes a good runner, but be more consistent in pass protection, catching the ball, the variable of plays youre going to carry in a game plan. A&M Opener Postponed: Tex as A&M will now begin its season on Sept. 8 when it welcomes Florida to College Station.

Mornhinweg showing early promise for UF, will be brought along slowly NOTE, from page 13 ADAM, from page 13Brissett: Its not my decisionmake a decision. You just have to go with whos moving the team, Pease said. The good thing about this is that theyre going to be in real game-time situations. Because Brissett and Driskel have been even throughout fall camp, coaches believe either one can lead the team In this circumstance, because of how theyve both progressed and shown their leadership skills, Im not really worried about it right now, Pease said. Ultimately, the coaches want to reward the quarterbacks for progress made during training camp. Pease believes each quarterback deserves legitimate playing time before a decision is made. They have both done a really good job, with how theyve handled the situation and how theyve progressed, to name a starter right now. What would you be telling the other kid? When the dust settles on Saturday, Florida might have its starting quarter back. Based on how fall camp has progressed, the competition could continue into next week. Either way, only Muschamp knows. At the end of the day, its not my decision, Brissett said. Its the coachs. Whatever he says, we have to go with. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@ alligator.org. QU ARTERBACK, from page 13


WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15John McLaughlin / AlligatorFreshman Berkley Whaley goes for a kill in Floridas 3-0 win against Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday in the OConnell Center. David Carr / Alligator StaffDetermining what Florida offensive coordinator Brent Peases offense will look like on Saturday has been a challenge for Bowling Green. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterWith Noami Santos-Lamb hobbling on crutches, Floridas freshmen have given the team a leg to stand on. cek and Berkley Whaley, was instrumental in Floridas trio of sweeps over the weekend. As a whole, the newcomers have totaled more than half of the teams kills, aces and blocks. If Santos-Lamb never suffered an ACL tear on Aug. 18 during a scrimmage, much of that production most likely would have come from her not the freshmen. (Santos-Lamb) had an awesome spring and stayed here the entire summer, coach Mary Wise said. Orange and Blue, she was lighting it up and was by far the best player on the court during that scrimmage. Its disappointing for her, but it also creates opportunity for other players to play in her absence. The injury to Santos-Lamb, a sophreturning outside hitter on the club, meant Wise had no choice but to rely to step up. But instead of choosing one from a group of many, Wise has been happy sprinkling several of Floridas fresh faces into the rotation. Three of the Gators top four attackers are freshmen, as are three of the top six blockers. es, no freshman even ranked in the category. Looking back on the weekend, I dont think we could be any more pleased with the production that our team came up with, Wise said. Especially in terms of all that we were dealing with and trying out new lineups as late as Friday morning. We were still juggling that lineup trying look like with the absence of Noami. The team responded better than we could have even asked for. When Santos-Lamb went down, Wise and the Gators didnt have time on their side, either. Just six days after the injury, Florida opened its season at home against Florida International. The freshmen had just six days to adjust to their new roles. come in, get caught up in not the volleyball part of it, but just the college life in general, Whaley said. Theyve all adjusted really well. They know what our focus is, and thats to win. Senior and captain Betsy Smith said it was that determination by the young players that helped the team get to 3-0, and that experience will help the squad as the year progresses. We wanted three wins, Smith said. We wanted to get our lineups, to play next to each other with a different, young team. Obviously there were some jitters for all of us. But they played through it and the three matches were big for us being able to get all that experience under our belt this weekend. As for Santos-Lamb, she will redshirt this season and have the chance nior. We talked as a group that were not going to feel sorry for ourselves, we feel sorry for Noami, Wise said. This wont be easy for her, and it hasnt been. But well be OK. THE FALCONS WILL PLAY THEIR FIRST SEC TEAM SINCE 1996. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterBowling Green is not familiar with the Southeastern Conference. Head coach Dave Clawson has heard the masses preach about the speed of SEC defenses, and what hes heard. I was able to coach one year in the SEC and I can certainly attest that the defenses in that conferences are different, Clawson said. Certainly on the defensive line with Florida theyre outstanding up front. You have some great players with (Sharrif) Floyd and (Dominique) Easley and (Omar) Hunter and (Dante) Fowler. I just think the caliber of defensive lineman in that league is what separates the defenses apart from other conferences, and I think that is one of our greatest challenges going into this game. Bowling Green has not played a game against an SEC team since its 1996 season opener, when it lost 21-7 to Alabama. Bowling Green played Missouri four times and went 2-2 during that span, while the Tigers were still part of the Big 12. Saturdays matchup was scheduled when Ur ban Meyer decided to do a favor for the school With Florida in need of a nonconference opponent, Meyer reached out to Clawson, and the chance to play in Gainesville was an offer the Falcons coach couldnt turn down. This is a great opportunity for our program to play against one of the most historic and premier programs on a national stage, so these are oppor tunities we feel like we can never pass up. Playing in a stadium as large as the Swamp will not be an unfamiliar experience for Bowling Green, and Clawson has done his best to replicate a gameday atmosphere in practice. Two seasons ago, the Falcons traveled to Ann Arbor to take on the Wolverines in Michigan Stadium, which seats more than 100,000 people. Theres no way you can simulate that, Clawson said of Saturdays at the Swamp. We havent been able to get 100,000 people to come to Bowling Green and watch us practice and make noise. Weve pumped in some sound, which isnt the same. Its certainly not going to vibrate the way it is down there. Defensively, the Falcons are preparing to deal with the Florida quarterback situation. Will Muschamp said on Monday that either Jacoby Brissett opener, and the other will play the second. Floridas coaches will then evaluate their performances at halftime before deciding who will play the second half. One is more of a traditional pro-style, Clawson said. The other is a little more of a threat to run. Theyre installing a new offensive system. I think they are going to ask both guys to run their system. Neither of them played a lot, so theres not Clawson said he has known offensive coordinator Brent Pease for nearly two decades, but said he doesnt know exactly what to expect from UF offensively. Theres a little bit of a guessing game on what theyre going to do, Clawson said of the Florida offense. How much of its going to be Boise? How much have they incorporated from last years scheme? Im sure theres going to be a lot to prepare for and theres going to be a few wrinkles in there. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org.

Team USA earned 31 medals in swimming overall, including 11 from former Gators.
