SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff WriterSome leafy greens at Publix may put more than a bad taste in your mouth. Publix Super Markets issued a voluntary recall Thursday for 10-ounce plastic bags of Publix Hearts of Romaine after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerted the company that samples of the product contained Listeria monocytogenes, a known pathogen. Alachua County was listed by a FDA press release as one of the affected areas, and local stores have since removed the bags from their shelves. Soohyoun Ahn, an assistant professor of food safety with UFs Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, said Listeria monocytogenes is less common to Campylobacter viruses but can be more dangerous. Theres something scary about Listeria thats different than other pathogens, Ahn said. She said the people who are most at risk are pregnant women, who can have miscarriages and stillbirths as a result of ingesting Listeria. If youre healthy with a strong immune system, the symptoms arent that obvious, Ahn said. If youre in a high-risk group, which includes children, the elderly and pregnant women, it can be very dangerous. Thats whats scary about it. While healthy people may not experience drastic side effects, they such as fever, headaches, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Another factor that sets Listeria apart from other foodborne pathogens is its ability to grow in inhospitable environments. If you refrigerate most of these pathogens, they will stop growing even though theyre there, Ahn said. But in the case of Listeria, it can still grow in refrigerated temperatures.Publixs recalled romaine lettuce could cause nausea, feverSEE PUBLIX, PAGE 1 KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterThe happiest place on earth has joined the political frenzy, and despite being two hours away, Gainesville residents are forming divided opinions in response. About a month out from Election Day, contributions from The Walt Disney Co. entities to Florida candidates and committees totaled roughly $2.5 million. The sum includes donations to 70 Republican candidates, 13 Democratic candidates, and both the Florida Democratic and Republican parties, according to Florida Department of State Division of Elections campaign contribution reports. A search for Disney in the tributor names for the 2012 general election yielded 490 results as of press time. The giant corporation has already given more than four times what it did during the 2008 election cycle. Jordan Sonaglia, a 21-year-old agricultural education and communication senior at UF, said Disneys political involvement lowers her perception of the corporations integrity. I think of Disney as innocent little kids are going there with their families, she said. Big industries or companies like this need to have a neutral perspective on politics. Kelly Semrad, associate director of UFs Eric Friedheim Tourism Institute, said Disneys political Residents wary of Disney donationsLocal stores removed the bags from shelves NATANYA SPIESAlligator Contributing WriterUF students and alumni will have the chance to form connections with hundreds of employers at the Stephen C. OConnell Center today and Wednesday. The Career Resource Center will host the Fall Career Showcase from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. About 7,000 students total are expected to attend, said CRC Director Heather White. Tuesday is directed at candidates interested in communications, accounting and health care, said Dana McPherson, assistant director for marketing and communications of the CRC. Wednesday is the technical day, and employers will look for candidates with as computer science, construction and engineering. Candidates can stop by at any time, and no previous registration is required, but a Gator 1 Card is required for entrance. Jaclyn Simek, a 20-yearold marketing junior, said she plans to talk to about 15 different companies. She said its easier for some students to attend the career fair than to search online for opportunities. All your resources are just laid out for you, Simek said. Its easier to ask questions because [although] you can read the internship descriptions online, unless you actually talk to someone, you cant really have a great idea of what you would be doing. McPherson said she suggests that candidates take a look at companies theyre interested in beforehand and bring the appropriate number of resumes. Starting early increases the likelihood and opportuingful connections that are said.Career Showcase offers networking, job opportunitiesWhite SEE DISNEY, PAGE 4POLITICS

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 David Carr / Alligator Staff COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterThe hype of Apples release of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 software has died down since Apple users discovered technical issues with the latest version of Apples Maps, which replaced Google Maps in the software update. Users found that the new Maps application is missing whole cities, duplicating locations and using incorrect landmark icons. Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly apologized in an open letter on the companys website, recognizing the applications kinks. Chris Dyal, 25-year-old UF Computing Help Desk employee, said he hasnt had any issues with Maps when looking up Gainesville on his iPhone 5. However, he said campus roads arent as accurate as they were with Google Maps. It was rolled out way too early, Dyal said. Despite the kinks, he said he doesnt think the faulty Maps application will affect iPhone 5 sales. Political science and theater freshman Lauren Killer, 18, said she updated her iPhone 4 to the iOS 6 software the week it was released. Out of all the updates, she said she is disappointed with the new Maps. Killer said the new Maps doesnt have outlines or labels for UF campus buildings. She said the malfunction wouldnt have happened under the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs watch. I think Steve Jobs is turning in his grave, Killer said. Killer said she uses the Maps application to track campus buses. She said if the software update took place earlier in the school year, she would have UF. RTS has a partnership with TransLoc, a real-time transpor tation information provider, said RTS spokesman Chip Skinner. Skinner said TransLoc is Windows-based, so RTS hasnt had complaints about Apple Maps and its public transportation directions. TransLoc cur rently uses Google Maps as its navigational platform. Killer said she hasnt had any on her iPhone, but she typically uses the TransLoc app. Killer, who plans to buy the iPhone 5 in December, said the Maps update has not led her to rethink her purchase or doubt the company. However, she told family and friends not to update their iPhones software. Its just not OK as is, Killer said.iPhone users not OK with Apple Maps CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Writer a car, then turned the gun on himself outside a downtown Gainesville nightclub late Sunday night.

Since the contaminated samples were found, Publix has pulled all bags of the companys Hearts of Romaine items with the UPC code 41415 03886, which can be found on the back right-hand corner of the package. Dwaine Stevens, a spokesman for Publix, said customer safety is the companys primary objective. tem in place to assure food is safe for our customers and their families, Stevens said. Ahn agreed. Publix is one of the grocery store chains thats very careful about food safety, she said. But things like this happen with any chain or brand.

LAURA HOGANAlligator Contributing WriterThe beating of African drums sounded across UFs North Lawn as Agbedidi, an Afat about noon Monday. A few hours later, with the sun beating down and thunder rumbling in the distance, two dancers from the UF School of Theatre + Dance walked arm in arm onto the North Lawn and proceeded to perform a piece that lasted more than 10 minutes. These were among roughly a dozen random acts of culture that happened across campus on Monday. The acts included a ceramics sale, a Capoeira dance performance drome State Theatre on the Reitz Union Colonnade, said political science sophomore Elizabeth LaRue, a marketing intern with the UF College of Fine Arts. The college sponsored the 12-hour marathon and its annual Arts and Cultural Opportunities Fair to kick off National Arts and Humanities Month, according to a release. Nutritional science freshman Truc NguyThats what I like about this campus, said Nguyen, 18. You walk around, and then you see all these activities, and everybodys not afraid to show what they are passionate about. Dozens of organizations including the Digital Worlds Institute, the University Singers, Theatre Strike Force, the UF Center for Arts in Medicine, Gainesville Ballet Theatre candy, pens, buttons and sign-up sheets to students walking by.

Civil engineering freshman Devon Kiszenia, 18, paused to listen to a cello player from the UF Symphony Orchestra and speak with students at the table. Its peoples interpretations of things that go deeper than words, and its wonder ful, Kiszenia said. Filipe Valle Costa, an actor at the Hippodrome, said he and his colleagues came to promote their upcoming musical Carrie. But on a personal level, Costa said he wanted to have a global impact. Im naive enough to think that I do this to change people, Costa said. Some people think that we cant. I think that we can change the way people speak, the way people think.Marathon event, campus fair spread random acts of cultureSales probably wont be hurtgiving is neither odd nor surprising. In the past, she said, the company has been bold in vocalizing its discouragement of gambling expansion in Florida. Disney has always had a loud voice in the tourism market, Semrad said. Semrad said because Disney customers represent a very diverse population, extending political support to either side of the aisle probably wont hurt Disney sales. There will be people who are knowledgeable about this, and they may not agree but others will. And others wont care, Semrad said. Madison Holfeld, a 19-year-old marketing sophomore, said she doesnt believe celebrities or big companies should support political parties or causes. It might sway people in a certain way because its in the spotlight, she said. I feel its slightly unethical. Thomas Harrington, a Santa Fe College political science professor, said Disneys political interests stem from the inseparable linkage between politics and tourism in Florida. Because Florida is one of the only states without a state income tax, he said, state government relies heavily on the tourism industry for revenue from sales tax. Harrington said Disneys expenditures for political causes stem from selfinterest. Everyone who does big business in the state of Florida wants to have their say in Tallahassee, he said.

MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Contributing WriterGrooveshark has expanded its mobile streaming website to include all mobile devices, including tablets. The announcement came after a series of setbacks for the music streaming website including being barred from the Apple App Store and a shaky existence with the Google app store. Grooveshark released its mobile streaming website earlier this semester and announced the expansion last week. Grooveshark was previously available on Android devices through direct install, but it was not available on any Apple products, said Sam Tarantino, CEO and cofounder of Grooveshark. No company that weve seen has created a fully functioning streaming service that is completely Web-based without the need to download an app, said Tarantino, 25. Grooveshark hasnt been able to develop an application for iOS software because Apple is still blocking it from the app store, he said. The Web-based streaming system was the sites way around that. He said the mobile site is also helpful to international Grooveshark users who may use less common devices. The company has been developing this method of access by developing the site by using HTML5, the October 2011, said Nikola Arabadjiev, a Grooveshark mobile developer. The developers have worked hard in getting a Queue feature and login access for those with Grooveshark accounts implemented in the Web-based system, he said. Groovesharks Web-based streaming is not available in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Brazil and Canada. Tarantino said Grooveshark is using this launch as a base to go global, making sure the technical kinks are worked out those countries before it launches to the rest of the world. He said Groovesharks use of the Web browser makes accessing music even easier for those looking for Web browsers are still more universal than mobile apps, said James Oliverio, executive director of the Digital Worlds Institute at UF. Theyre convenient for people who want to connect instantly to what they are looking for. Using streaming media through a Web browser is a good marketing tool for Grooveshark because it cuts down the amount of time needed for the user to get the music, he said. It can take several minutes just to search for any given app and then download it, said Oliverio, a digital arts and sciences professor. Apps come with too many startup glitches and updates, said Sterling Monroe, a 19-year-old criminology sophomore. With Web access, Groovesharks music is available instantly. With all the free Wi-Fi available these days, Im set.

CHRIS KIRSCHNERAlligator Contributing WriterFive Florida governors will discuss population growth, environmental and legal issues at UF next Friday. Floridas Future: A Conversation with Florida Governors, presented by the Florida Law Review, will be on Oct. 12 at 10 a.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. The event will last about an hour and a half. Gov. Reubin Askew, Gov. Charlie Crist, Gov. Bob Graham, Gov. Buddy MacKay and Gov. Bob Martinez will speak at the event. The event will be a two-part conversation. issues they see with Florida such as transportation, water and judicial reform. The second part of the conversation will feature a question-and-answer opportunity for audience members. Lauren Beard, 24, coordinator of Florida Law Reviews 2012 Allen L. Poucher Lecture Series, said the event is important because the governors experience spans a total of 30 years, and the issues they faced are still relevant topics now. We hope that the audience will be inspired to do good things for the state after hearing the governors talk about the issues we are faced with, Beard said. Blake Murphy, a 19-year-old business administration freshman, said he plans on attending the event even though he is not from Florida. It is going to be really informational and great to hear think the state is headed in, he said. Doors will open at 9:15 a.m., and the event is free and open to the public.

Despite how many times were called a liberal, pinko, commie rag, wed like to endorse the Students Party. In fact, its our honor to endorse them. Its not because theyre the minority party; we dont always want to endorse the minority party, but we dont feel like we have any other option. One day, if the system eventually does change, maybe well consider the other side. Today is not that day. the way through the Student Senate. In order to see changes, compromises or a more proper representation of the UF Student Body, a majority of seats should go to the Students Party. Were just guessing, but it appears that the Swamp Party only represents a minority of UF students. The Students Party will attempt a new level of transparency between the government and the students. If you see a broken sprinkler, let them know. They want us to hear about our student government outside of election season. An open dialogue and communication capability is crucial for any relationship to work, especially the one between us and our government. People with the best ideas should be able to advance more than they currently are capable of doing with the way the SG system works. If students are timid to present their ideas or to even begin running for a position, those ideas will never be heard. The Students Party believes in a meritocracy: a way to based on who you know or what organizations you belong to; it would be based on the best ideas for the UF Student Body. That notion might be radically different from the SG we have right now. As far as platforms go, the Students Partys isnt as hip as reasonable; theres no need to invent an app when changing the lightbulbs in the blue lights on campus will do the same thing. The Students Party knows that nothing is instant, but some of for the Student Body if a majority of people disagree with our administration, something that SGs of the past have not done. We know this decision might seem predictable. It might even seem personal, but its not. Were not letting past events color our decision this election. themselves, and this is how the chips fell. Dont let our choice affect how you will vote; take a look at all And if you enjoyed our coverage of this election, vote NO on the referendum regarding the distribution racks on campus. Less opportunities to pick up our paper equal less opportunities A recent New York Times article presented the results of some preconceived notions about girls, boys and Science professors at American universities widely regard female undergraduates as less competent than male students with the same accomplishments and skills, stated the study conducted by Yale University researchers. women rationalize and behave differently; its just biology. However, these differences should be positively recognized rather than used as a basis for discrimination. cepting their innate differences especially when in pursuit of completing the same tasks. I once met a female student who started school as an engineering major. After a few semesters, she switched to the computer science program. She said that in her engineering classes, just a handful of other female students were sprinkled across the lecture halls. The rest were all males. Many of those males werent very encouraging, kind or supportive. She said the learning environment made her so uncomfortable, she decided to change her course of study. No one should ever have to give up something theyd like to pursue simply because of how he or she will be treated by peers or viewed by society. The problems of bias run even deeper than just the issue of comparing men and women. People often forget about the So, whats your major? everyone asks students. Sometimes, it doesnt matter what our answer is. It surprises me that people are actually bold enough to give disapproving looks in response or question others personal, academic and preprofessional pursuits. Every time I visit family and friends at home, someone tells me I need to change my undergraduate major ideally world go round, and those are just not the ones Ive chosen to focus on at the moment. Dont get me wrong, I have nothing but respect for those who have chosen them. STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), health and other much for our society. But upon taking my grandmother to an optometry appointment, her female doctor told me I should try to become a nurse. She knew and asked nothing else about me after All she had to say was that I should pursue nursing. patience, skill and training required to do their jobs. I was simply disappointed that this doctor wanted to know nothing about what I enjoyed the most and based her career advice for me solely on a large stereotype. paying job postgraduation. However, it is not fair to blatantly say that having a particular degree will completely ruin or accomplish that for you.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorWhat could you buy with $13.94? You could buy a couple of meals at Chipotle for one thing, or you could buy a ticket to the Jacksonville State University game and still have money left over for a soda. You could also buy one credits worth of Student Government fees. Theyre sort of like the taxes you pay to keep the gyms open and the buses running, among other things. But chances are youre not at UF for one credits worth of courses. Youre here for at least 120, unless youre double majoring or going to grad school, in which case youll be buying even more. Some quick arithmetic reveals that, like it or not, you will fork over a grand total of at least $1,672 to Student Government during your time here. Thats a lot of burritos. Or maybe a fancy new scooter. to come out of your pocket. But theres a silver lining: You get to choose how its spent. The only catch: Youve got to vote. the banners and the T-shirts and Have you heard about the (blank) party yet? but all of that is for a reason. The people in the T-shirts want to tell you about what your money is being spent on, and they also want to get your input on how youd like it to be put to better use. Dont believe me? Go tell one of them something youd like to see done; itll be on their Facebook page and/or website within the hour. Theyre dying to talk to you because they really care about Student Government for one reason or another, and they want you to care, too. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day and listen to them. And then vote. Vote like crazy. Because voting matters. Because our generation has the lowest voter turnout of any demographic in the U.S., and we need practice. Because people on the other side of the world protest by the thousands when theyre not given the chance to vote. And because, more than anything, it just makes sense. Theyre spending your money, after all. You ought to tell them how they can spend it. Alex Cornillie Former Students Party Candidate for UF Student Body president Im sure youre all devastated about the news of the worldwide pork shortage. Yes, this includes our favorite meat, bacon. Last Thursday, Britains National Pig Association warned that the escalating numbers of shrinking herds are going to cause an unavoidable bacon shortage. This porkapocalypse is due to the increase in cost of feeding these delicious animals, according to the pig industry. If youre still reading, let out that breath youve been holding bacon will not be extinct as predicted. The U.S. Department of Agriculture predicts that the pork production of next year will be about 23 billion pounds, only a 1.3 percent decline in America. Worldwide, its predicted that the availability will only be a 2 to 3 percent decrease per capita. Bacon has become a fad, or obsession, for American food lovers. In 2010, pork consumption reached an all-time high of 33.4 pounds per person a year, according to the Department of Agricultures Foreign Agricultural Ser vice. Europe may experience a lack of bacon within the next few years but only a 10 per cent decrease at most. Do not freak out. There will still be bacon. The bacon crisis has spun into an exaggerated epidemic. We can all blame the media, but lets get serious: If there was a terrible shortage of bacon in our future, we would all want to know about it immediately. Thankfully, this issue is not as bad as forecasted by the United Kingdom, but the word unavoidable comes across very serious and scary. The bacon in the United Kingdom is also different from the bacon that Americans eat with scrambled eggs and toast. The bacon in this region is from a different part of the animal a meat familiar to us as Canadian bacon. YouTube series EpicMealTime will be happy to know that the price of bacon in Canada, however, will not be raised as high as in the U.S. This predicted scarcity was due to a recent drought and rise of corn price. This may raise the price of pork per pound within the next few years. Steve Meyer, a consulting economist to the National Pork Board, predicts that prices will be raised at most to $3.75 per pound.

If you were freaking out about the loss of bacon I know I was rest assured that it will only be raised by a measly quarter, a price us bacon lovers will have to pay. Krista Brooks is a columnist for the Daily Forty-Niner at California State University-Long Beach.Dont worry, US theres still bacon to bring homeGuest columnKrista BrooksSpeaking Out T since the launch of Apples smartphone back in 2007 that arguably kicked off the smartphone revolution. Nowadays, the iPhone faces stiff competition from Android phones, but there is still a quality that is unmatched in the iPhone. More than any device in recent years, the iPhone single-handedly provided a boost to the economy while creating a smaller economy around itself. economy is through its sales. Since its introduction, the different iterations of the iPhone have sold 244 million units. Those sales numbers look to continue upward with the iPhone 5. According to JP Morgan, it is reported to increase considering it is a single device from one company. However, the iPhone and a lot of other devices receive criticism for hurting the economy by manufacturing jobs overseas. It is a valid point that outsourcing hurts the American economy, but critics often overlook the other avenues in which the iPhone creates jobs. One of these avenues is the application store. Apples marketplace of mobile apps and games for the smartphone grew exponentially. The company already gave out $1 billion in royalties to their app developers solely from the sales of apps. This excludes advertising or in-app purchases. Without the app store, companies like Rovio Games and success stories like Draw Something wouldnt exist. Although not every app is a booming success, 90 percent of the current 700,000 available apps are downloaded every month. Everyone who owns an iPhone has had some interaction with the app store, but theyve also probably had interaction with another facet of the iPhone economy: the accessories. Whether its just a case or a speaker system, iPhone owners made the iPhone accessories market worth $2 billion to $3 billion last year. Like the app store, this allows third parties to enter into the iPhone economy and design different cases, speakers, headphones and other smartphonecompatible products. This facet should continue to grow as analysts predict the iPhone accessories mar ket will grow to about $5 billion to $6 billion in the next three years. Even the hype of the iPhone helps the economy. It earns Apple and any other company related to the phones production free publicity and also the occasional boost in their stock prices. On the other side of things, the iPhone provides At the key of any economy is innovation. Companies like Square would have never been started without the iPhone. And while it isnt the sole source of innovation, the popular crowd-funding site Kickstarter wouldnt have reached the Kickstarter that brought it to the mainstream was the Pebble. The project was a watch that linked to and allowed you to control your iPhone. It received more than $10,000,000 in funding after originally asking for $100,000. This sparked a boom of innovative ideas on the platform ranging from new iPhone cases, camera lens adapters, foldable keyboards and plenty of other ideas. Only some of these ideas will go on to create businesses. The employees of these businesses, the revenue that is brought and the innovative opportunities available all owe their existence to the iPhone. More than any modern device, the iPhone has created multiple means of adding a boost to the economy, and it is a good thing that Apple decided to do one more thing.

Brandon Spikes notched seven tackles, forced a fumble and had a hand in another as the Patriots beat the Bills 52-28.Vanderbilt Start Time AnnouncedFloridas matchup against Vanderbilt on Oct. 13 is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU. Redshirt freshman Simone a server and attacker after a year of development. See story, page 16. David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida quarterback Jeff Driskel (6) attempts a pass against the Kentucky defense THE SOPHOMORE MISSED LAST YEARS GAME WITH AN ANKLE INJURY. GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer On Saturday, Jeff Driskel will get the chance he never got last season. When Florida was preparing to face eventual Southeastern Conference champion LSU a year ago, Driskel spent most of his time rehabbing an ankle sprain in the training room. Florida needed a starter to replace John Brantley, who suffered a high ankle sprain against Alabama seven days before UF was slated to play LSU. But Driskel would not be the guy. Instead, Jacoby Brissett started in his place. Brissett completed 8 of 14 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions as Florida lost 41-11 in Baton Rouge, La. I was in the training room all day long trying to get back, doing whatever I could, Driskel said. There was just not enough time. Driskel entered UF as the nations top-rated passer and had the advantage of being an early enrollee. When Brantley went down against the Crimson Tide, Driskel got the call, completing 2 of 6 passes for 14 yards. Driskel said he was upset about not being able to play against the Tigers, but added that his performance was the biggest reason he took a backseat to Brissett for the remainder of the season. A lot of guys in his situation nowadays want to point at a situation and say, Its not fair, coach Will Muschamp said. Instead, he decided to work. After earning rave reviews in summer and fall camp, Driskel opened 2012 as the starter at quarterback. Through four games he has thrown for 698 yards and four touchdowns with one interception while completing 69.6 percent of his passes. He also has 33 carries for 148 yards and a score. Hes a guy that took his circumstances and did something about it, Muschamp said. Its a credit to him and his fortitude and his drive. Nearly one year after UFs 2011 matchup Tigers. LSU boasts the nations No. 6 pass defense, including a defensive line Muschamp said was probably as good a front four (as there is) in college football. The unit is headed by elite talents Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery at defensive end. Linebacker Kevin Minter and safety Eric Reid have also distinguished themselves as two of the nations best. pecially at the defensive line, Driskel said. That front four is the best that well see After sitting out 2011 matchup, Driskel gets shot at LSU JOE MORGAN Alligator Staff Writer On Saturday, LSU defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery will go after Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel. Which Gators offensive lineman will protect Driskels blind side has yet to be determined. Either injured senior Xavier Nixon or freshman D.J. Humphries is expected to start at left tackle. Whoever practices the best will play, coach Will Muschamp said. Nixon, who has started all four games this season, has been dealing with what Muschamp described on Sept. 24 as a legitimate shoulder injury. Humphries played nearly the entire second half in Floridas 38-0 win against Kentucky on Sept. 22. Although Nixon boasts 26 career starts, Driskel is not worried about Humphries potentially taking over the left tackle spot. Hes a guy thats worked hard ever since hes gotten here, Driskel said of Humphries. He came in in the spring a little undersized, but hes really fast and hes great in his techJenkins back, but noncontact: Linebacker Jelani Jenkins returned to practice in non-contact drills on Monday. Muschamp was hopeful Jenkins would be cleared for contact prior to Wednesdays practice. Jenkins status for Saturdays game remains uncertain, but if he were to play, coaches have said he would do so with a cast. LSU, in most situations offensively, is going to give you some things they havent Starter at left tackle not set THE ADAM BOMB When the Gators and Tigers play on Saturday, it will in The Swamp in six years. Florida will attempt to knock off its highestranked opponent at home since defeating then-No. 4 LSU in 2008. Winning against the Tigers on Saturday would put the Gators in a position they havent been since Urban al title contenders. Despite the chance to enter the national title race, UF has been focused from the beginning of the season on reaching Atlanta and playing in the Southeastern Conference championin Miami. That isnt a realistic goal right now. Coach Will Muschamps message has stayed the same for the entire season. The Gators dont let the highs and lows get to them. Tenth-ranked Florida is a cool customer. Its business as usual. Floridas standing amongst na12-game regular season doesnt matter. Saturdays matchup against the Tigers is just another conference game, Win or lose, UFs game vs. SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 15 SEE ADAM, PAGE 15 SEE NOTES, PAGE 15Humphries Adam Pincustwitter: @pincus_adam

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15 David Carr / Alligator StaffLinebacker Jelani Jenkins (3) waits for a snap against Bowling Green during picks. Regardless of the challenges ahead, Muschamp wants Driskel to focus on playing within his limits. Driskel needs to get the ball out of his hands quickly and ensure UF gets in and out of the correct play calls. Jeff needs to be Jeff, Muschamp said. We dont need any super-human effort. He doesnt need to do anything more than hes done in the previous four weeks. Driskel said he plans to prepare for LSU come upgrade over the training room he Im excited to get this opportunity, Driskel said. Thats why you come to Florida, and thats why you want to play in the SEC. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. Injured linebackers experience could bolster Florida defenseshown before, so him being able to adjust some things out you havent prepared for, because you cant prepare for everything, Muschamp said of how Jenkins potential return would help UF. Certainly, his experience, maturity, playmaking ability, being able to make some defensive calls and calm some guys down in situations in a game like be an added boost. Jenkins suffered a fracture in his right thumb during Floridas 20-17 win against Texas A&M on Sept. 8. He underwent surgery on Sept. 10. If Jenkins is unable to play against the Tigers, freshman Antonio Morrison will likely make his third consecutive start at weakside linebacker. Morrison has 16 tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hurry in 2012. Other injury updates: Muschamp said Trey Burton (back spasms), Dominique Easley (swelling in left knee), Sharrif Floyd (shoulder) and Jordan Reed (undisclosed head injury) all returned to practice on Monday. Burton and Easley sat out the entirety of Floridas 38-0 win against Kentucky, while Floyd and Reed played before exiting due to injury. Muschamp said Monday that Cody Riggs (foot) and Matt Patchan (strained pectoral muscle) will not play against LSU. Riggs suffered a fracture in his right foot during the Gators win against the Aggies on Sept. 8. Patchan has not played since Florida lost to Florida State 21-7 last season on Nov. 26. This weekends contest against the Tigers will mark the 32nd game Patchan has missed due to injury during his college career. Offensive numbers: During the Gators bye week, they missed out on the second-highest-scoring weekend in college football since 1937, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The 52 FBS games during the weekend produced an average of 60.8 points. that total came from West Virginias 70-63 win against Baylor and Georgias 51-44 victory against Tennessee. Im glad we were off, Muschamp said. I think with a lot of the tempo, there are a lot more snaps being taken on both sides for both teams. Everybody is into this tempo, getting on the ball and snapping it, and going as fast as we can. Wide receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. likes to see a lot of scoring, and he does not think offensive shootouts are bad for college football. However, he said explosive offense without good defense is not worth much. If we score 70 and the other team scores seven, thats good, Hammond said. If we score 70 and the other team scores 60, thats not good. Contact Joe Morgan at joemorgan@alligator.org. NOTES, from page 13and the Gators have acted accordingly. We wont put any more hours this week than three weeks ago, UF coach Will Muschamp said. I know everybody thinks that all of a sudden were going to change everything for one game, but were not. Jeff Driskel stood at the podium on Monday and delivered the same mechanical response he, his teammates and the coaching staff have given the entire season. a big one, Driskel said. Its a really good opponent, and were excited for the opportunity to be matched up with one of the best in the country. This from a player who wasnt on the da last season. A player who has yet to feel what its like to try to make plays against the NFL breeding ground that is the Tigers defense. Sure, LSU represents a huge challenge for UF. Gators had no business beating the Tigers. But four games in, UF looks very different from the overmatched squad that lost in Death Valley last season. Florida will run out of its locker room with a sense of optimism not felt in Gainesville in quite some time. That still doesnt make this game any bigger than any other Saturday in the SEC. These wins are pretty much hard to come by, senior linebacker Jon Bostic said. Anybody can beat anybody on pretty much any given day. So, weve got to bring our A game. [The Tigers have] got to bring their A game. Weve got to try to go out, play smart and limit our mistakes. A loss on Saturday isnt the end of the world. The biggest mistake for Florida would be to treat it as such. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org. ADAM, from page 13 FOOTBALL, from page 13 Quarterback needs to play within limits


16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2012 Kristi Camara / AlligatorSimone Antwi (16) receives a pass from Dana Backlund (2) during UFs 3-0 win against Jacksonville on Sept. 7.

The fun thing will be is to have Simone, knowing that shes just a month into her career and we still have three full years left, she said. County High graduate learned she would sit out a year, she was not disappointed. Instead, she wanted to work on her game so that she could contribute when she returned to the court the following season. I was excited because it was another opportunity to learn, Antwi said. Being able to sit out and watch everything was truly good for me. I learned a lot from the middles and the past players and the coaches. I had a lot more time to work on everything. Antwi said she is still working on her blocking. Although Antwi has only 17 blocks this opportunity to improve by playing behind who both redshirted as freshmen.
