STUDENT GOVERNMENT SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterAlthough national parties are knee-deep in campaigning, UFs Student Government election season is just getting started. Today is the deadline to register a political party for the Oct. 2 and Oct. 3 elections. The Students Party and new Swamp Party have already registered. Swamp Party spokesman Sen. Daniel Landesberg was elected as a Unite Party senator in the Fall 2011 elections, but he said he felt the needs of the Student Body were not being addressed. This is not a name change for the Unite Party, he said, but a new party that stands for fair and proper representation of constituents and commitment for straightforward, no-nonsense government. Students Party President and Sen. Ford Dwyer said although the new elections codes restrict campaigning, the process of selecting dates is still the same. We welcome the best students on campus, he said. Fifty new senators will be chosen to represent their constituents. However, before anyone can cast a ballot, prospective candidates need to qualify for their positions. Students must meet certain for Student Senate, and provide documentation of residency for the district they seek to represent. During Fall elections, senators are elected to represent all of the residence halls on campus and of residency can be in the form of an original copy of a utility bill or Senate candidates to begin process of qualifying for election THE MOBILE OPTION WILL WORK WITHOUT THE LIMITATIONS OF ADOBE FLASH, FOUNDERS SAID. KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterGrooveshark launched a mobilestreaming website Wednesday to bypass the Google and Apple app stores after a series of disagreements with media companies. Music-streaming business Grooveshark, based in Gainesville and founded by two former UF students, has had its share of roadblocks in the past few years, from pending lawsuits to being booted out of Apples app store. The company lost its Google app last week with little public explanation. Android users can download the app through Groovesharks website. Grooveshark announced its new mobile option, html5.grooveshark.com, Wednesday afternoon with little mention of the controversy. full feature set is available on any device with a Web browser without being bounded by the limitations of Adobe Flash, co-founder Sam Tarantino said in a news release. The company is facing multiple lawsuits from big names in the music industry. Universal Music Group sued Groovesharks parent company, Escape Media Group, in 2010 for illegally reproducing and distributing songs from Universals pre-1972 catalog, according to Alligator archives. It was sued again by Universal Music Group in 2011 for copyright infringement. The Grooveshark app was taken out of both the Apple and Google app stores last year. The companys Apple app has yet to reappear, although Groovesharks website gives instructions how to download the iPhone app if the phone is jailbroken. Grooveshark spokeswoman Danika Azzarelli said the company is working with Google to get its app back on the Android market. Grooveshark as an app is not a copyright infringement, and Google should recognize through their experience with Despite obstacles, Grooveshark launches mobile application KELLY PRICEAlligator Contributing WriterWhile many students are celebrating the long-awaited aid, others are just excited they can start paying less for tuition. A federal judge ruled Friday that Floridas public universities can no longer charge out-of-state tuition to children of undocumented workers living in Florida. Although decided in Miami, this move excited civil rights advocates and immigration activists all across the state. UF economics senior Victor Yengle said hes ecstatic. The 23-year-old moved from Peru to the U.S. at about age 12 and has been following the case. He said he wasnt surprised by the ruling. We knew that it was unconstitutional because it was discriminating against American citizens whose parents happen to be undocumented workers, Yengle said. It was quite appalling that this was the case and with that. U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore cited in his opinion for the case the 14th Amendment, which guarantees U.S. citizens equal protection under the law. Denying in-state tuition to U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants would violate that, he wrote.Judge rules on tuition Sam TarantinoSEE QUALIFYING, PAGE 4 SEE GROOVE, PAGE 4 SEE TUITION, PAGE 4Dwyer

He wrote students who have lived in Florida as citizens for a year or more should be treated as such regardless of their parents actions. When students apply to UF, theyre not directly asked if their parents are U.S. citizens, said spokesman Steve Orlando. We would have no way of knowing if these students have parents who are in the country illegally, he said. Orlando said he didnt know how many UF students the ruling will impact or how much the tuition changes could cost the university. UF students who live in-state pay about $205 per credit hour, but for non-residents, the rate is about $947, according to the State Univer sity System of Floridas website.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was arrested Tuesday morning after he tried to hit a woman with his car. Gainesville Police arrested David Leonard Williams, 40, and charged him with aggravated and simple assault, according to a GPD arrest report. At about 10 a.m. Tuesday, Williams and Jennifer Byrd stood arguing on the road at Paradise Trailer Court, at 4546 NW 13th St. After the dispute, Williams got into his car and drove off. A few moments later, he turned around, pointed his car at Byrd, 33, and slammed on the accelerator, but he did not hit her. Williams got out of his car and started arguing with Byrd again. This time, he tried to punch her in the face. Byrd was not injured during either argument. Williams left the property before lice found him at Oak Ridge Apartments, 1120 NW 45th Ave., and ar rested him at 11:22 a.m. I didnt try to hit nobody with my vehicle, Williams said to police before they questioned him, according to the report. Williams also said he had mental health problems and that Byrd and another man egged him on. I just got frustrated, he said. I was driving through the crazy.

The National Science Foundations undergraduate education division awarded to UF and Miami Dade College last month a $1.7 million grant to increase the number of students graduating with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math. The foundation is looking for innovative ways to bring community college students, particularly minorities, to bigger universities for life science degrees, said grant writer Eric Triplett, chairman of the UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences microbiology and cell science department. [The foundation is] willing for people to take risks, he said. The grant will expand the distance-learning program UF and Miami Dade faculty launched last Fall. Miami Dade is a full partner in the program, Triplett said. Miami Dade students who earn an associate of arts degree there and get minimum grades in certain prerequisite courses are eligible for the program. Almost all the microbiology courses are available online, Triplett said. Miami Dade students can also attend shortened lab sessions on UFs campus. 20 $1,250 scholarships each semester for students at Miami Dade, Triplett said. About 10 research stipends at UF labs throughout South Florida will also be available. The grant will also provide career workshops to educate students about job options after graduating with a microbiology degree. Theres more to life than medical school, Triplett said. The program is based at Miami Dades north campus, where the Student Body is largely Hispanic or African-American. nancial concerns and families they cant leave behind, said grant co-writer Jennifer Drew, an instructor in UFs microbiology and cell department.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 FLACOS NEW CATERING SERVICE HAS ADDED TO ITS SUCCESS. ALEX CATALANOAlligator Staff WriterWhen Flacos Cuban Bakery opened its second location in busy Midtown, staff expected business to continue booming. But quiet summer months hurt both Flacos Midtown location and its original downtown location. Owner Sara Puyana said business has recently returned to normal. The new branch was supposed to boost location had to support the Midtown location of the Fall semester. Our weekends are getting back to normal, and lunch rush is getting The new branch survived with help from the original downtown locations community base returning customers like homeowners from the Duckpond Neighborhood area, city business owners and downtown workers. Toward the end of the summer, Gainesvilles nightlife brought weekend business to the new location. Patronage picked up even more when Flacos newly created catering service started serving student organizations oncampus meetings. But she said theres still a lot of work to do. Setbacks like broken air conditioners in both locations make operating a customerservice-based business tough. But as the Fall semester picks up, more and improvements. Heather Rivers, a 22-year-old environmental engineering senior, said the Midtown location is a convenient place to hang out. Theres always people here, especially late New features to Flacos will include a walkup service window with an awning to shield from rain or especially sunny skies. Jonathan Hamilton, a UF economics professor, described a similar struggle with the Burrito Bros. Taco Co. when it opened an unsuccessful branch in Tampa. He said a branchs success relies on the staffs ability to keep the quality of the second location as good as the original. Contact Alex Catalano at acatalano@alligator. org.

A GPD news release gave the following account: At about 9:40 p.m., John M. Stewart and a female friend drove to Fair View Apartments, 1615 NE 16th Ave., to meet a drug dealer. Stewart, 45, had $2,000 in cash and planned to buy Roxicodones to sell. at the entrance of the complex. Byrd, 23, got into the car, told them to park behind Apartment No. 17 and made a call from out of the car and left to an unknown location. When Stewart got out of the car, a second man, wearing dark clothes and a bandana, came out from the woods and tried to rob Stewart at gunpoint. The men struggled, and the masked assailant shot Stewart in the face. The bullet entered his cheek, broke some of his teeth and exited his open mouth. The shooter grabbed Stewarts wallet, which had a small amount of money, and ran back into the woods. The $2,000 was in the car. Stewarts female friend called 911 and drove Stewart to Shands at UF. The two were uncoopAn hour and half after the incident, the woman told police her version of what happened.

The shooter remained at large, but police arrested Byrd on Wednesday afternoon. He is accused of a connection to the shooting and was charged with armed robbery, GPD spokeswoman Cpl.

Wednesdays question: Will you sign up for a TRiP excursion this semester?29% YES 71% NO22 TOTAL VOTESFood DebtFood stamp recipients at an all-time highMore and more people are on food stamps, whether or not its by choice. Are we in danger of becoming complacent with this? That probably depends on if you view the program as a problem. About 15 percent of all Americans are on food stamps; thats about 46 million people. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps about 22.4 million households, which is an all-time high, at a monthly budget of about $132.96 per person. The program expanded in 2002 under President George W. Bush, in 2008 under the newly elected President Barack Obama and in 2009 as a part of Obamas stimulus package. If you ask the conservatives, the statistics only prove a failed presidency. News of how many people are on food stamps comes with the highest national debt ever recorded: $16 trillion. That these two frightening records should be set at the same time under Barack Obama should come as no surprise it is what he wants, according to the website ConservativeHQ. To be fair, the ConservativeHQ website also stated that the Obama Kool-Aid drinkers at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called (Newt Gingrichs) statements inaccurate and divisive, so take its opinion with a grain of racist salt. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has proposed cutting the food stamp budget by $134 billion over 10 years. We dont want to turn the safety net into a hammock that lulls able-bodied people into lives of dependency and complacency, that drains them of their will and their incentive to make the most of their lives, Ryan said, according to CNNMoney. He would cut funding of a program that helps people get a basic necessity, helps the 8 percent of recipients who are elderly and helps its 47 percent of child participants. Has government spending coincided with the national debt to force hardworking Americans to go on food stamps? According to NBC News, liberal commentator Alan Colmes said in a piece in the Wall Street Journal, that people only stay on it an average of nine months and circulate $1.73 back into the economy for each food stamp dollar spent. Colmes point of view makes SNAP seem like a positive experience, like its helping our country get back on its feet with a quick turnaround of participants. So, which is it? A government handout that lets people feel too comfortable in their welfare status or a helpful form of assistance to those who need it? Its hard enough to buy healthy food these days. Organic food costs about 800 percent more than it did in 1997; not saying that organic food is the best food out there, but its a good measuring stick to see how much your money, or food stamps, will get you. So maybe the biggest difference in the food stamp debate comes down to who uses them. If people in SNAP tend to cycle back out of it after less than a year, that doesnt seem like much of a hammock to us.Gift of a smile more important than styleAs a young lady, I would hate to add up all of the hours I spend on my hair. Washing, conditioning, blow-drying, straightening and styling consumes a large amount of time, day in and day out. Yet women and men alike take great strides to ensure their hair is perfect. A bad hair day is a terrible nightmare, but a great Styles change with the seasons. If only the fashion world would glorify straight and curly hair at the same time, then we all might be at ease. Women spend hundreds of dollars every year to change hair color, texture and length. I go through countless bottles of products and will throw my money at anything that promises a sleeker look. Hair is a prized possession. But what would it take for women to give up all of their hair? What if it made a critically ill child happy? Several organizations accept natural human hair donations and use them to make wigs for children who undergo chemotherapy. Children receive the wigs for a small fee or for free, their childhood given back to them. The charities Locks of Love, Wigs for Kids, Pantene Beautiful Lengths and Angel Hair Foundation all provide wigs for children battling cancer and other diseases that often result in hair loss. Many hair salons will help with hair donation. At the donation site, hair must be clean, dry and kept off the Colored and permed hair are accepted by some of the charities. At half an inch a month, it takes about a year and eight months to grow the minimum 10 inches of hair required to donate to most of the charities. I shook off my nerves, and made an appointment to cut off 10 inches of my hair. Never having had hair shorter than shoulder-length, I underwent this drastic change knowing that my hair meant nothing compared to a childs smile. I took a deep breath when I sat down in the cushy salon chair and watched as the stylist undid the bun on top of my head. I knew it would be months before I could wear it like that again. Then, she separated and secured my hair into pigtails. While still occupied with small talk, the stylist took her sharp shears and began to cut away the hair just under my ear. I felt the weight of my hair vanish and could hardly bring myself to look in the mirror. She made her way to the other pigtail. I closed my eyes and tried to imagine what I looked like. my hair down to my waist. Now, it ended halfway down the nape of my neck. Then, I felt purely excited. I was able to make a difference in a courageous childs life using something I already had. It doesnt take a big commitment to be a hero. People often think only the biggest contributions are meaningful, but its the small offerings that add up to the greatest impacts. Abby Wolz is a health science freshman at UF.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The latest model of the iPhone comes out Sept. 12, and as consumers upgrade their phones, they will downgrade their values in American capitalism. As if anticipating its new toy on the market, Apple Inc. successfully sued Samsung Electronics in late August for rights on intellectual property. The case ended with a verdict awarding more than $1 billion to Apple from Samsung. While some of the patents could arguably belong to Apple, such as mechanics that operate a slide lock for the screen, Apple really just wanted a monopoly on smartphones. By getting that monopoly, Apple took away the option of an alternate smartphone, and with it, American capitalism. The bogus claims of theft included accusations that Samsung stole the basic shape of a smartphone. It seems like Apple owns the rectangle with rounded edges while it is at it, Apple should also sue the makers of credit cards, playing cards and drivers licenses. rectly affects almost every consumer in America.

But the former Lion of the Senate had one last roar. The video included clips of Kennedy debating, and ator in 1994. The clips start with Romney, who stated that day try ... Kennedy jabbed back with artful ruthlessness, I am litical convictions in another clip, saying of the wealthy businessman, Now hes for family leave. Now he looks like hes for minimum wage. Now hes for education reform. If we give him two more weeks, he might even vote for me, because those are the things I am for. tain of: First, the Republican or conservative talking heads and political commentators will be enraged about the use of a dead senator to bluntly call out Romney. Second, this is exactly what Kennedy would have wanted; he would have loved every minute of it. Conservatives real objections to revisiting that campaign are not due to the ghosts of Kennedys past. Rather, such trips invoke the apparitions of the many different Mitt Romneys who have come and gone over the years. What keeps them up late at night are the ghosts of every diverse position Romney has taken on many of the major issues of the day. bailout Romney are some of the classics. Although viewing all of lation about his core beliefs and more important. Republican leaders urgency to embrace a man who ues is in line with the spirit of their own rightward shift creases their contrast with Obama. Policy positions that tory are labeled Marxist when Obama touts them. Todays Republicans have been working diligently to rewrite history throughout this administration, from the ing the economy, to a total amnesia concerning the eight years of the Bush administration. The GOP has put forward a lot of talk about how Obama has not done enough to prevent an increasingly stagnant recovery, while simultaneously blocking his jobs legislation during the last two years. ing to work with them as they take pledges to never raise taxes. tax breaks for the rich. Our country entered into the worst economic slump since the Great Depression, and countless people lost their quality of life through no fault of their own. Many Americans are still deciding whom to trust to lead this nation with conviction. The themes struck at the party conventions may play a role in framing that decision. Perhaps the Kennedy tributes most valuable impact will prove to be that it reminded us what Mitt Romney, todays GOP and ghosts have in common: They all exist only in fantasy.

BECCA GOLDRINGAvenue WriterThe most important meal of the day just became essential because September is National Breakfast Month. In Gainesville, we have a wide variety of breakfast joints to take advantage of. To celebrate this wonrestaurants that are bacon up the most egg-cellent morning meals: Peach Valley Caf [3275 SW 34th St.] With a wholesome environment that translates directly to the food, this is the perfect place to take visiting parents. Start with an order of Apple Fritters ($4), which are served with a yogurt dipping sauce and shaken up in a brown paper bag full of sugar and cinnamon before you devour them. After, go for an order of Buttermilk Drop Biscuits in Sausage Gravy ($4.90) or a Philly Steak and Egg Croissant Benedict ($9.25). If you still have room, try a Peachwarm and grilled ($2.45). The Jones Eastside [401 NE 23rd Ave.] Getting to the Jones is a bit of a trek but always worth it (and luckily there is a second downtown location opening soon). Try the Jones Cakes ($6.50) made in either clasversion. Another great choice are the Jones Rancheros ($8.57) served on a toasted corn tortilla with organic black beans, salsa fr esca, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, avocado and sour cream. Dont forget to grab a side of Eastside Potatoes ($5.50)! The Flying Biscuit Caf [4150 NW 16th Blvd.] The menu here can be over whelming, but in the best way, because everything looks (and is) delicious. If youre craving carbs, go for the Orange-Scented French Toast ($7.50), which is topped with raspberry sauce and honey crme anglaise. The Creamy Dreamy Southern-Style grits ($2) are not to be missed (they come with most entrees) and neither is the Turkey Hash ($9.25) with two over-medium eggs, topped with cheese and served atop slowroasted turkey pot roast. Get there early or eat at the bar, because the lines are always long. Bagels and Noodles [1222 W. Univer sity Ave.] This laid-back restaurant is everything you want when you might have ahem gone out for beverages the previous night. Everything from the kitschy dcor to the friendly staff makes you want to stay for hours chowing down on an Eggel bagel sandwich ($3.76) or one of the massive omelettes ($8 to $9). Why the noodles you ask? Well, the original owner teamed up with a Vietnamese coowner to incorporate Pho and other Asian dishes in the menu. Try ordering a Vietnamese coffee ($2.99) with breakfast it comes in a French press! THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 9Dana Burke / AlligatorThe Apple Fritters at Peach Valley Cafe are brought to the table in a brown paper bag, shaken up in sugar and cinnamon and served on a plate with a yogurt dipping sauce. Chomp and Chew: Celebrate National Breakfast Month locally dining THE ACADEMY IS LOCATED AT 305 SE SECOND AVE. CRISTINA PANEQUEAvenue WriterThe Academy for Five Element Acupuncture offers a different take on the traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike the more commonly known form of Chinese acupuncture, the acupuncturists at the clinic locate the Qi, which is the energy element in your body, through pulse tests and access it by pushing needles in and out of the body. The academy, at 305 SE Second Ave., has been cur muscles in Florida since 1988, and about 350 students have graduated from the school. Clinical intern and thirdyear student Saundra Bennett, 48, will graduate with a masters degree in acupuncture. She said the treatments give patients an overall sense of well-being and establishes harmony in the body that promotes health, no matter the reason for the visit. This medicine has been alive for over 5,000 years, Bennett said. It wouldnt have lasted so long if it didnt work. She said the clinic manipulates the energy in your body. If there is a block in the energy block and promote circulation anced and maintain a better physical state. As a patient, youll feel it, Bennett said. Its a different sensation for everyone, but you Licensed acupuncturists, who have been in practice for at least 20 years, oversee all treatments, and there are 25 interns. The clinic encourages students and local residents to tour the facility and receive a free 30-minute consultation. The initial fee is $45, and additional appointments are $35 each or three for $100.

You barely know the major news headlines in your city, let alone what music news you can look forward to enjoying. Not to fear, music lovers. Lucky for us all, I overload my brain with music news 25/8, so Im here to condense it into a pretty package for you. Come to me every month for the top news tips, perfectly tailored for audiophiles: the albums to buy, the concerts to attend and, every so often, the music gossip you just cant believe. Heres whats happening this month: Bob Dylan The artist who almost needs no introduction, Bob Dylan, is bringing us his 35th studio album this month. On Sept. 11, Dylan will release from the highly anticipated release, Duquesne Whistle, is out now. Let us not forget a huge highlight in American music and culture either: Earlier this year, Dylan received a Presidential Medal of Freedom honoring his profound impact as an artist and singer-songwriter. Bow down to the Dylan. Alanis Morissette You Oughtta Know about a new Alanis Morissette album. (Jeez, that was awful. Im sorry, but I had to.) Havoc and Bright Lights different side of Morissette. While ry, albeit still perfect responses, to tumultuous relationships and pent-up confrontations, her latest release showcases her new roles as a wife and mother and, in my opinion, a veteran musician whos paid her dues. The new approach is refreshing. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Morissette comments about how the `90s grunge-pop queen is now just another version of herself. DeLuna Fest Florida got itself a (real) music festival! Now in its third year, DeLuna Fest brings Pensacola Beach, Fla. a jam-packed, wellrounded lineup of artists, including Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and Zac Brown Band headlining a list of more than 60 genre-spanning bands that are booked to rock.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/askMaegan Dennis / Alligator Staff Dear Mediocre Advice, I woke up with the worst hangover due to my 21st birthday. What do I do? How do I get rid of this agony? Dear Friend, Everyone has their own gross routine to get over the hell that is a deserved hangover. My routine? One whole pizza, one or two barf sessions and a long nap. Next time, prevent the whole episode. Before you sleep, chug water and eat drunk food (food so greasy and lacking in quality that you would never eat it while sober). Unfortunately, by the time this prints you will either be better or dead. Dear Mediocre Advice, So, I think I may still have feelings for my ex. We are on good terms, and I have been dating a few people in the meantime, but every time I see him I still get anxious. I want to be good friends, but done. I just want to know if its truly possible to be good friends with someone who you used to bone and not eventually want something more. What do you suggest I do? Dear Mediocre Advice, Ive been hooking up on and off with this dude for about a year. We bone, and when er are together he acts like he really cares. When I bring up dating, he gets weird and distant. How can I lock him down? Dear Friend, You cant lock down someone who doesnt want to be with you. He probably thinks you may even be seeing other people. Guys can still care, even if they dont want to date. Hes been ramming you for almost a year so you work out, just remember its no fun to be with someone that doesnt want to be with you. Dear Brother, We must go out and celebrate. Lets drink at Fridays until we need Taco Bell to soak up the sinful amount of alcohol in our stomachs. Remember that time you got a major case of diarrhea from eating nachos at Dennys? Me too. Thats what your beer sh*ts are going to feel like the next day. See you on Thanksgiving. Get home safe. Dear Mediocre Advice, Im coming home from Afghanistan for Thanksgiving, and I want to take as many of my siblings out who will come and get absolutely hammered. (No cousins though this is a sibling-and a year in Afghanistan has left me completely out of touch with what is what. I could always just make a lot of food and buy a lot of alcohol and just have a stay-at-home party, but I dont know. Fridays maybe? What do you think? Ariel Barnes Dear Friend, used to bump uglies with, but not until you both have mutual platonic feelings. The best reasons why it would not have worked. For example, he is one of those annoying people who dont watch the news to protect themselves or he uncontrollably farts in his sleep. Little things like these will make you grateful you two are done and you dont have to deal with it. This is only one step in getting over him. Until you do, it doesnt get easier to be his friend. Still, feelings may linger and screw up future relationships. He didnt think you were good enough for him, so why is he good enough for you?

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Paco Gets Cup of CoffeeThe Los Angeles Dodgers have promoted former UF reliever Steven Rodriguez to the MLB club as part of the league-wide September roster expansions. Rodriguez is the second Gator who played for Kevin OSullivan to reach the big leagues. CORNERBACK MISSED 2011 WITH A KNEE INJURY. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer After missing all of last season with a lingering knee injury, Jeremy Brown is expected to return on Saturday and provide another piece to what coaches feel is already a strong cornerback rotation. With Texas A&M likely to lins air raid offense, UF coach Will Muschamp expects an added burden to be placed on the cornerback position. Were going to be in some situations where well have six and especially with that hightempo offense, Muschamp said. Were going to have to roll and play a bunch of guys, and obviously Jeremy Brown coming back Brown was regarded as a potential starter in last years secondary before suffering a knee injury during fall practice that was originally expected to keep him out for about three weeks. Muschamp said multiple times during the 2012 season that Brown was close to a return, but that return never came. Missing time due to injury was nothing new for Brown, who sat out all of 2008 and 2009 with back problems. (It) is a great story of hanging in there and keep persevering, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said. I was really excited to see him come back. Brown underwent wrist surgery and missed all of 2012 training camp, but Muschamp and Quinn both spoke highly of his performance in recent practices. He is ready to go, Muschamp said. [He] actually looked really good [on Tuesday]. Quinn recalled the speed Brown showed on a pass breakup in Tuesdays practice, adding that the junior will be a valuable piece against the Aggies. For us to have another [defensive back] with experience of his caliber is good, Quinn said. Physically, hes feeling pretty good. Now its more of just getting back into the football technique, football shape, more just the vision. Quinn doesnt know when Brown will return to the form he showed in 2010, when he started 10 games, made three intercepBrown may need some time before he is ready to play at his highest level, but improvement is expected from week to week. Alligator File PhotoJeremy Brown has not played in a game since 2010 due to injury, but he is expected to be a part of UFs cornerback rotation on Saturday. Browns return to bolster defense JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease wants Jordan Reed to get more touches. He could have had a few more, Pease said. There were a couple of other throws we tried to get to him. Some things happened on one. We had some breakdowns in protection here or there and a misread. Hes got to get more. Reed proved a popular target for Jeff Driskel during the Gators season opener on Saturday. The quarterbackturned-tight end tied Frankie Hammond Jr. and Quinton Dunbar with a team-high three catches in Floridas 27-14 win against Bowling Green. Reeds 33 receiving yards placed second among Gators pass-catchers. Two of Reeds three catchEven without the ball in his hands, Reed proved his worth. On Mike Gillislees 38-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, Reed made the block that allowed Gillislee to take the ball up the right sideline on the way to the end zone. Reed, who has been working on his blocking with tight ends coach Derek Lewis, said that aspect of his game is the most improved since last season. Just footwork and hand placement, hat placement, Reed said when summarizing his work on blocking. Just being more physical and tenacious and things like that.UF wants Reed more involved offensively SEE NOTES, PAGE 18JURNY DUTYJeff Driskel needs to be unleashed. When the leash is unhooked, it is uncertain whether he will be a powerful Great Dane or a miniature Chiout this Saturday. Will Muschamp said following Saturdays win against Bowling Green that he did not give offensive coordinator Brent Pease enough latitude to throw the ball in the numerous third-and-short situations that Florida failed in. The emphasis on the run wasnt limited to short-yardage plays, as the Gators ran the ball twice as much as they threw it against the Falcons. That will work against Bowling Green, but not against most defenses in the Southeastern Conference. Part of the onus falls on Driskel, who has repeatedly shown a tendency to go for the short, safe pass rather than the big play. The rest of the responsibility falls to the decision-making team of Pease and Muschamp, who need to use more of the playbook, as theyve indicated they will. Pease said Driskels downfield pass attempts should increase as he gets better at seeing his options. The receivers did do a good job of beating the coverage, and I think how I can help him is just maybe, one, youve got to show it and go back and go over and simulate it again, Pease said. (Were) trying to use the same kind of progression. Sometimes I can change where their progression is at to get him to his open guys quicker and help him from the box, or change their read this week to make it a little bit easier for him.

Its getting better. I used to just throw my head in there, so now I use my hands more, so I guess it takes some pain off my neck. Defense misses opportunities: Flor ida forced two turnovers in its 27-14 victory against Bowling Green on Saturday, but thats not enough for defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. Marcus Roberson intercepted a pass from Falcons quarterback Matt Schilz and Cody Riggs forced a fumble on a punt return recovered by Drew Ferris near the end of the game. Still, Florida fell short of Quinns goal of three takeaways per game. Both Riggs and Jaylen Watkins dropped potential picks in the second quarter. We had some missed opportunities for interceptions, Quinn said. We had two of those in the secondary that we thought we could get our hands on those balls and give the offense a chance to go back the other way with it. Once you get your chance at them, youve got to convert on them. Despite the low takeaway count, Quinn was happier with the Gators pass rush. Florida had one sack and three quarterback hurries. We did pressure the quarterback some, Quinn said. We didnt get the same number that youd like in a ball game, but I do think we affected the quarterback in that way. The Gators pass rush will earn a boost should Ronald Powell complete his rehab from a torn left ACL before years end. Florida coach Will Muschamp has not given an update on Powell since he set Oct. 1 as a loose target date for the Buck linebackers return on Aug. 20. As part of his rehab, Powell is working with Quinn after practice. What we do, generally, is he does rehab and then we do some exercises and things post practice where were starting to get ready, whether its hands or rush and that kind of thing, Quinn said. Freshman Dante Fowler Jr. received more playing time than the majority of Flor season opener. That trend will likely continue against Texas A&M. He had a good training camp, Quinn said. I wasnt surprised that he played a lot of turns and that kind of stuff because I really felt like he was ready to do that. Fowler made three tackles, assisted on a tackle for loss and notched a quarterback hurry against Bowling Green. Perhaps his biggest play came on a fourth-and-3 play on Floridas 24yard line during the fourth quarter. In a two-score game, Fowler stopped Falcons running back John Pettigrew for no gain. He played a lot on third down for us and I think hes really improving as a rusher, Quinn said. Im kind of excited to see where he can go to. Fowler has adjusted to the college game quicker than his fellow incoming defensive linemen. His ability to crack the lineup early is a testament to Fowlers skill set. Thats the balance with the new players, Quinn said. Whos able to handle it physically and how fast can you get acclimated from a terminology standpoint. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@ alligator.org. Regardless of how quickly Brown gets back into football shape, Quinn thinks his presence will be a boost. Its good knowing that you have some corners whove had some experience, Quinn said. Marcus Roberson claimed a prominent role in Browns absence and started the ing a bone in his neck an injury that ended his season three games early. Roberson was a limited participant in spring practice but has come on strong in the fall. He started in UFs opener against Bowling Green on Saturday, breaking up three passes and making the teams only interception. Roberson had an interception and only two pass break-ups in 2011. I thought he had a couple of good plays receiver on a deep ball or things like that, Quinn said. I was pleased with Marcus in from an injury last year and didnt miss a beat in that way, it was good for him. Loucheiz Purifoy started opposite Roberson on Saturday but quickly gave way to Jaylen Watkins after missing a pair of tackWatkins said he expects to start against Texas A&M, but the coaches seem committed to rotating Roberson, Watkins, Purifoy, Brown and Cody Riggs. Theyre going to go with the guys whos doing pretty good in that game, Watkins said. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. 18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 Josh Jurnovoy:1. Geno Smith 2.

UF defense looking to force more turnovers NOTES, from page 17 plays and encourage Driskel to not hold anything back. As good as Mike Gillislee was against Bowling Green, the yards will not come that easy every week. SEC teams will load the box, forcing Driskel to try to beat them. In 2011, Texas A&M had the countrys 109th-ranked pass defense, allowing 276.3 yards per game. They are also replacing both starting cornerbacks and a safety. Saturday is the perfect opportunity for Florida to see if its newly named starter has what it takes to lead the team to a respectable SEC record. Barring an unexpected improvement in the Aggies secondary, Driskel will have opportunities to make big throws on Saturday. The coaches have to give him those chances by calling enough passing plays, and Driskel cant hesitate to use his natural gifts. If the coaches fail to hold up their end of that equation, then there is no reason to believe things will change against better defenses. If Driskel refuses to take chances, then he needs to be benched in favor of Brissett. The key to what little success the offense had against Bowling Green was Gillislee, but he will be nulBoth right guard Jon Halapio and tight end Jordan Reed said perience since being thrown into the fray last year against Alabama. Last season, Driskel averaged just 4.35 yards per attempt. If his teammates are correct about his improvements and the coaches take the leash off, then that number should increase drastically against SEC teams. If it doesnt, 2012 will be another dismal season for the Florida offense. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. JOSH, from page 17

We wont win if we make the same mistakes that we did against Bowling Green. lems from the previous weeks game. Sumlin, the coach at Houston for the last four sea year at Texas A&M and would have appreciated the opportunity to have a dress rehearsal before the SEC opener. Its an advantage for Florida to be able to play, Sumlin said. You make your most improvement comes from experience. Its an advantage to play and get to know your team. Not playing in Week 1 could work as both a posi tive and a negative for Texas A&M. With the Aggies new coaching staff and a lack of its opponent.

You have this balance of, OK, Id like to know who the opponent is, but at the same time know what the scheme is. Thats the challenge for the players this week.

The senior, who had totaled three points shots against FIU but did not net a single one. I need to, obviously, put those shots away, Tymrak said. I was kind of lacking in having shots, period, in my previous games, so I think that the fact that I got some shots on is good, but obviously its not good enough. I need to put those away. Tymraks problem converting scoring op portunities was representative of the Gators ability to convert on scoring chances. Our execution in terms of every facet of the coach Becky Burleigh said. Florida has taken 36 shots and scored only three goals, all of which came against unranked FIU. Against No. 1 Florida State on Friday, UF had several opportunities broken up before it could create shots. The Gators defense kept them in the game and prevented the Seminoles from scoring a second time, but the offense failed to convert any of its numerous chances into goals. We certainly created some awesome chanc es, Burleigh said after the loss to FSU. Ulti in the game. The same lack of execution proved to be an issue against the Golden Panthers. However, Florida registered more shots against a weaker FIU defense, which allowed the Gators to score three goals. They were playing three in the back, which I think really favors us, Burleigh said. Against the Blue Devils, the Gators scored three goals on only 10 shots. In the FIU game, Florida needed 24 shots to score three times.

20, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 THE RALLY Greg: Floridas problems with penalties should fall squarely on the shoulders of one man coach Will Muschamp. The Gators were among the 10 most penalized teams in the nation last year, drawing 7.7 they left off in 2012, committing 14 penalties for 106 yards in Saturdays win. Muschamp says hes exhausted every meaEspecially when, as he admits, UFs penalty problems stem from issues of discipline. Plain and simple, Muschamp needs to do a better job of regulating his players. Joe: Pinning the problems of several on one person is a bit extreme. Its up to the players the people actually committing the penMuschamp cannot hold Jordan Reeds hand so he does not jump offsides, and he certainly is not responsible for Andre Debose going all Kimbo Slice on punter Brian Schmiedebusch after he ran out of bounds. When Muschamp says he has exhausted every I believe him. Besides, UF has a history of penalty problems. From 2007-2010, the Gators tallied 7.5 per contest. Greg: commit penalties. Thats Football 101. But until a coach drills it into their heads that penalties are unacceptable, the same misReed was called for two false starts on Saturday, and on Wednesday he said his punishment was 11 pushups. Eleven! Reed also said the coaches have a new policy of stopping 11 players do updowns if someone jumps early, which is certainly a step in the right direction. But until Muschamp starts actually pulling guys out of games as a result of the penalties, the message isnt being sent strongly enough. Last season, Muschamp said he couldnt pull penalty-prone players because the team didnt have the depth. But with Damien Jacobs, Dante Fowler Jr. and Jonathan Bullard new to the rotation, Muschamp has no excuses. Until he starts punishing his players on gameday, he deserves the brunt of the blame. Joe: Tuesday, he described the Gators penalties problem as errors on players, something theyve got to control within themselves. Weve got to be smarter about what we do, he said. Pulling players from games may prove efa delay of game? Bring on Jacoby Brissett and Besides, youve seen Muschamp on the sidelines. Hes not exactly a rational guy. Youre right, Greg. The up-downs are a terEleven push-ups are 11 push-ups. Its 11 more than Reed would have usually done. Its 11 more than you and I have done combined in the last seven days.
