Florida never breaks. This week, [strength coach Jeff Dillman] kept saying it and kept saying it, and it got stuck in my head, Floyd said. I had it written on my tape. FNB. We can bend, but we dont break. At this time last year, the Gators were broken. Florida had just dropped a road game at Auburn for its third consecutive loss. A rash of injuries had exposed glaring depth issues. The Gators offense was suffering from the absence of injured starting quarterback John Brantley. Florida limped into Jacksonville. Georgia sent the Gators home with their fourth straight loss and a winless October. I like this better, UF coach Will Muschamp said when comparing this October to last. Said center Jonotthan Harrison: It was all a motivating factor. We just talked about, especially last year, the feeling in the locker room we had after the game, how bad it hurt. We even had guys getting emotional over it and we used it as pure motivation to come out here and completely dominate this team. Now, the Gators, who maintained their No. 2 BCS ranking, simply need to defeat the Bulldogs to clinch the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division. But the road back to the top has not been easy. Florida has bent plenty this year. Second-half rallies have been the norm for Muschamps club in 2012. The Gators have overgames three times this season. However, Florida did not need post-halftime heroics to defeat South Carolina 44-11 on dium.

Fridays question: Do you plan on 105 TOTAL VOTES52% YES 48% NOSNL = LOL Bruno Mars keeps the awesome going Do you remember last years season of Saturday Night Live? Exactly. It wasnt very memorable or good. Dont get us wrong, we still fully admire the amount of work that goes into writing and creating a live sketch comedy show each week, but last year was just not full of a lot of superb episodes. Maybe the cast was too busy worrying about the departures of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, some lovable comedic actors. Or maybe the mid-season, uh, retirement of Paul Brittain also served as a distraction. However, so far, this years season has been spot-on and awesome. For some reason, the jokes have landed better with the audiences and the social commentary is pretty accurate. Saturdays episode was no different. and the musical guest, we werent sure how well that would go over. He didnt have any acting or comedy experience before that episode. But he did amazingly well. tulated that many SNL cast members might be thinking, You know, Bruno Mars could be our new Justin Timberlake. Timberlakes episodes are always crowd-pleasers, and Mars lived up to the singer-turned-host name. SNL has a weird dynamic. It simultaneously depends on a strong host, but there is a full cast of actors who should be showcased each week. You can tell if an episode is being carried by the cast, but a bad host shouldnt bring the show down. For example, some weird episodes include ones hosted by Paris Hilton, Michael Phelps and Lindsay Lohan. Sometimes theres nothing the cast can do to save the show, and the audience wont know until the show begins. In the case of Bruno Mars, our trepidation was totally unnecessary. Perhaps we were all worried that he would ruin the awesome streak of this season, but he totally didnt. What does this mean for the audience of SNL? A good season means more people will pay attention; thats especially important in an election year. Because people like watching news in an entertaining format, popular TV shows will probably become more political. Why else do you think President Obama showed up at The Daily Show last week? SNL has done spoofs of each of the presidential debates so far, and they have nailed them entirely. The cast captured the feeling and hilarity of both candidates. Its important to be as informed as possible, should you choose to vote in this election. The wording on your ballot may not be very clear, so feel free to do all kinds of research before making a decision. If that means you have to watch SNL to get a quippy version of events, then so be it, because its actually worth it this year. It wont lead you down the wrong road. On memory and art; Or, West Egg revisitedIve often been told by purveyors of horrible clichs that memory is a powerful tool for good. I dont argue memorys power, but Id compare it more to a demon-possessed chainsaw that occasionally turns on by itself while its sitting in the garage and maims a few of your unsuspecting body parts (like that poor kid in Out, Out) than something like a really nice cordless drill (seriously, those things do work). Memory is what bears us back ceaselessly into the past like boats beating against the current (as someone who is a much better writer than me once put it) but also what makes us crazy, what shatters our glass minds with regret, what digs into the lush soil of our sleepings at night when dreams are terror incarnate. Memory is nothing if not the half-thought harbinger of things to come, a warning in the past who reminds us that even our ten days from now will someday be our many years ago. I fear my memory. I fear its tendrils of smoke in the night when it resembles an angel of darkness standing in my doorway. I fear its apparition in dreams that encircle all of my thoughts with oceanic swells and grow up through them like a world tree, its maddening rooster cackle that sings of times inevitable catastrophe. For memory is the stiff-necked refusal to believe; the stinking heartrent failure to forgive; the slaughtered-lamblike folheart ablaze in days when the clouds seemed always ready to split and bellow their disastrous disapproval; the doe eyes of unfought-for love that a storm of anger and argumentative less our lightning burrowed watching in the clouds. I think I got lost in an epiphanic break of riverlike emotion and forgot that I was going to make a point. Actually, that sort of is my point. Memory is the key and our minds dam is the gate. Prousts madeleine is an oft-cited example of this universal truth. Sometimes we cannot help but be reminded. Sometimes the dam is too weak to stop the break, and the ing rapids of reminiscence until the implications of the scene become clear, and were left to ponder on these things and keep them in our hearts. This (along with art and the search for lifes meaning, which are really the same thing) is what separates us from animals. As far as I can gather from my admittedly faulty method of observing the squirrels on the Plaza of the Americas (although Im sure some very thoughtful person is going to love going out of their way to correct me!), animals do not meditate upon their memories: They simply learn the appropriate reHumans are an inherently tragic race because our memories can eat at us so, drive our sanity over cliffs and rocky ridges, make us do things not because they make sense but because. And perhaps this is why we make art. Art is as much a search for truth and answers as religion ever was. The memories that sometimes make us destroy ourselves sometimes release themselves from the prison of our minds in rushes of arpeggiated colors, runs of birdlike notes, slithering brushstrokes of rhyme and meter: because truth is beauty, and beauty is truth, and to know that is all we need on Earth. We must create. We must create so that humanitys memory can taste the same bitter cup that we taste in every day of the thunderlike growling of silent longing. And perhaps someday our creation will suffer the exaltation that we so innately crave for ourselves. Anyway, what I was going to say is that theres something my father told me in my younger and more vulnerable years that I used to turn over in my mind a lot, but I dont remember what it is anymore.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 The Alligators editorial opinion by Moises Reyes on Oct. 19 shows that hes ready to work on a cable news propaganda show upon graduating from journalism school. His piece about Mitt Romneys nonpandering to womens pay disparity compared to mens was factually wrong. The real cause of womens pay disparity is indeed their lack of seniority due to their voluntary lifestyle choices and changing employment status often due to having families. Seniority is a labor union clause in collective bargaining contracts foremost and less often seen in nonunion workplaces. In fact, progressive policies (unions) are causing the glass ceiling barrier, not some Republican Party or private-sector conspiracy. Any private employer would gladly pay a woman more than a man if shes producing more, and they do. The unemployment crisis has hit women harder since ployers have hit women hard. Women fare much better odds of being paid for their current performance if they avoid seniority situations. In other words, they should work in the private secwork now, not for being around so many years before. J.D.

It was a wonderful table to work because every movie you have ever heard of, those you havent, movies you hadnt thought about in years, movies you always wanted to see and movies you have fond memories of came through, and you could look at the covers and read the backs for a little chunk of happiness. It was a popular table with the volunteers, and people were always coming back to chat and peruse the products. Bill, a white-haired, retired, engineering professor, was visiting one day. I had been listening to a CD in my car and asked him if It turned out I had asked the right person. Bill had written a paper on this very subject, read. Bill was friends with Katy Dunn (no one who passed away a few years ago. She was brary and had done many things, but when I was working there, she mended damaged books. Katy lived on a farm outside Hawthorne, and she and her husband had spent many summers in England. She told Bill she had been to every pub in Cornwall described in Bill Brysons book.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll Question Vote online at alligatorSports. org.David Carr / Alligator StaffLoucheiz Purifoy (right) forces South Carolinas Bruce Ellington to fumble during a JOSH JURNOVOY After struggling to get on the board early in games this season, Floridas offense took a 7-0 lead less than a minute into Saturdays contest, and it had a defensive back to thank for it. Loucheiz Purifoy blitzed from the left corscrimmage. The sophomore sacked South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw on the Gamecocks 5-yard line and forced a fumble that was recovered on the 2 by Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray. The play set the tone for the Gators in their 44-11 rout of the Gamecocks in The Swamp. I felt like he saw me, Purifoy said of Shaw. He gave me the little jab like all quarterbacks do, but I was like Oh this is a kill shot. Im going to kill him. When he stepped up and left the ball out I was like, You messed up. And I slapped the ball out of his hand. Three plays later, the Gators scored on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Jeff Driskel to Jordan Reed. Coach Will Muschamp said the decision to bring pressure early was one the coaches made long before kickoff. I told the players to play aggressive, because were going to call it that way, Muschamp said. Dan (Quinn) and I were talking in the hotel this morning and I said, Lets bring the pressure. Lets go. tackle for a loss of Purifoys career. He hopes there are more to come. I love blitzing, Purifoy said. I got a mindset of a linebacker. I just love hitting people. Im real physical. On the ensuing kickoff, Purifoy forced another fumble when he tackled returner Bruce Ellington at the South Carolina 21-yard line. Ellington fell on the ball at the 18. Purifoys tackle was his fourth on special teams this season. In 2011, Purifoy led the team with 22 special teams tackles. Although he has sophomore, Purifoy said he still values making plays on kick and punt coverage. Special teams win games, Purifoy said. One block punt away can win a game for you. One muffed punt can lose a game for you. So thats my goal. If they muff a punt or they dont call a fair catch and I get a chance to tee off on them, hey, give it to them. Maybe theyll Sophomore cornerback sparks turning point in Floridas rout SEE PURIFOY, PAGE 14 ADAM PINCUS Hes always taken a back seat to Jeff Driskel on campus. For Gators punter Kyle Christy, it isnt easy being the roommate of third-ranked Floridas starting quarterback. Nobody actually comes up and talks to me, Christy said. Im actually roommates with Jeff. A lot of times Ill be hanging out with him and hell get recognized. Christy doesnt seem to mind, but his performance on Saturday could get the sophomore from Brownsburg, In., some attention. He set a school record by kicking seven punts of 50 yards or more on Saturday against South Carolina. Christy has a shot to become the second Florida player to receive the Ray Guy Award, which is given to the nations top punter. Chas Henry won the award in 2010. nationally in yards per punt. He has pinned opponents inside their 20-yard line 12 times. What a game-changer, Gators coach tion change to have a guy like that a weapon like that. Also, our coverage units are outstanding. Loucheiz (Purifoy) and all those guys do an outstanding job. The coverage team, led by Purifoy and Trey Burton, forced South Carolina fumbles on a punt and two kickoffs. Gamecocks receiver Ace Sanders, who entered the game ranked second in the Southeastern Conference in punt return average, managed two returns for just 1 yard. After Driskel found tight end Jordan Reed for a 3-yard touchdown on Floridas Ellington to fumble the ensuing kickoff. South Carolina recovered at its own 18. Punter returns to spotlightSEE NOTES, PAGE 14END OF GREGULATION The time to be critical is over. Lets put to bed all of the questions about whether Floridas success is sustainable. It just doesnt matter. Is throwing for less than 100 yards in three consecutive games a winning formula? Of course not. Should fans be encouraged after UF had 29 yards of total offense and 64 Did Florida really assert its dominance on Saturday? In the words of South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier: The one thing you can hope is that your guys give it their best shot and not just lay the ball down and basically say: Here Florida, we dont want to win. You guys take this fumble and this fumble and this fumble. So it was sad. The thing is, none of that matters. Florida is one win away from the Southeastern Conference Championship Game, two wins away from being in the BCS title game and three wins away from the national championship. (Dont count Missouri, Louisiana-Lafayette and Jacksonville State as real opponents. Florida State is no pushover, but if Florida loses that game and win the SEC Championship, theyll play for the crystal football anyway.) Forget about a lack of discipline resulting in three personal fouls, or an inept passing attack, or the fact that Florida has been outgained every game this season. Doesnt matter. Any problems the Gators have at this point in the year arent the shift in mentality. champ went on a tirade while speaking to a group of 30 reporters crammed into a room about the size of the average dorm. Sure, he was happy UF had just come from behind something he had to get off of his chest. The media had given him a lashing after Florida apparently struggled to beat Bowling Green, and he was tired of hearing about it. He had called a run-based attack with an eye on the big picture, even if that led to an ugly victory in Week 1.
